Section 5.03 Procedure. The person or entity seeking indemnification pursuant to this Agreement shall be referred to as the “Indemnified Party” and the person or entity from whom such indemnification is sought pursuant to this Agreement shall be referred to as the “Indemnifying Party.” The following shall apply with respect to all claims by any Holder Indemnified Party or Company Indemnified Party for indemnification:
|(a)||An Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party prompt notice (an “Indemnification Notice”) of any third-party Action with respect to which such Indemnified Party seeks indemnification pursuant to Section 5.01 or Section 5.02 (a “Third-Party Claim”), which shall describe in reasonable detail the Loss that has been or may be suffered by the Indemnified Party. The failure to give the Indemnification Notice shall not impair any of the rights or benefits of such Indemnified Party under Section 5.01 or Section 5.02, except to the extent such failure materially and adversely affects the ability of the Indemnifying Party to defend such claim or increases the amount of such liability.|
|(b)||In the case of any Third-Party Claims as to which indemnification is sought by any Indemnified Party, such Indemnified Party shall be entitled, at the sole expense and liability of the Indemnifying Party, to exercise full control of the defense, compromise or settlement of any Third-Party Claim unless the Indemnifying Party, within a reasonable time after the giving of an Indemnification Notice by the Indemnified Party (but in any event within ten (10) days thereafter), shall (i) deliver a written confirmation to such Indemnified Party that the indemnification provisions of Section 5.01 or Section 5.02 are applicable to such Action and the Indemnifying Party will indemnify such Indemnified Party in respect of such Action pursuant to the terms of this Article V and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, shall do so without asserting any challenge, defense, limitation on the Indemnifying Party’s liability for Losses, counterclaim or offset, (ii) notify such Indemnified Party in writing of the intention of the Indemnifying Party to assume the defense thereof, and (iii) retain legal counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Party to conduct the defense of such Third-Party Claim.|
|(c)||If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any such Third-Party Claim pursuant to Section 5.03(b), then the Indemnified Party shall cooperate with the Indemnifying Party in any manner reasonably requested in connection with the defense, and the Indemnified Party shall have the right to be kept fully informed by the Indemnifying Party and their legal counsel with respect to the status of any legal proceedings, to the extent not inconsistent with the preservation of attorney-client or work product privilege. If the Indemnifying Party so assumes the defense of any such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel and to participate in (but not control) the defense, compromise, or settlement thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel employed by the Indemnified Party shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Party unless (i) the Indemnifying Party has agreed to pay such fees and expenses, or (ii) the named parties to any such Third-Party Claim (including any impleaded parties) include an Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall have been advised by its counsel that there may be a conflict of interest between such Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party in the conduct of the defense thereof, and in any such case the reasonable fees and expenses of such separate counsel shall be borne by the Indemnifying Party.|
|(d)||If the Indemnifying Party elects to assume the defense of any Third-Party Claim pursuant to Section 5.03(b), the Indemnified Party shall not pay, or permit to be paid, any part of any claim or demand arising from such asserted liability unless the Indemnifying Party withdraws from or fails to vigorously prosecute the defense of such asserted liability, or unless a judgment is entered against the Indemnified Party for such liability. If the Indemnifying Party does not elect to defend, or if, after commencing or undertaking any such defense, the Indemnifying Party fails to adequately prosecute or withdraw such defense, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to undertake the defense or settlement thereof, at the Indemnifying Party’s expense. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the Indemnifying Party shall not be entitled to control, but may participate in, and the Indemnified Party (at the expense of the Indemnifying Party) shall be entitled to have sole control over, the defense or settlement of (x) that part of any Third Party Claim (i) that seeks a temporary restraining order, a preliminary or permanent injunction or specific performance against the Indemnified Party, or (ii) to the extent such Third Party Claim involves criminal allegations against the Indemnified Party or (y) the entire Third Party Claim if such Third Party Claim would impose liability on the part of the Indemnified Party. In the event the Indemnified Party retains control of the Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Party will not settle the subject claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.|

Section 5.04 Periodic Payments. Any indemnification required by this Article V for costs, disbursements or expenses of any Indemnified Party in connection with investigating, preparing to defend or defending any Action shall be made by periodic payments by the Indemnifying Party to each Indemnified Party during the course of the investigation or defense, as and when bills are received or costs, disbursements or expenses are incurred.
Section 5.05 Insurance. Any indemnification payments hereunder shall take into account any insurance proceeds or other third-party reimbursement actually received.
Section 5.06 Time Limit. The obligations of the Holder and the Company Indemnifying Party under Section 5.01 and Section 5.02 shall expire two (2) years from the Closing Date, except with respect to (i) an indemnification claim asserted in accordance with the provisions of this Article V which remains unresolved, for which the obligation to indemnify shall continue until such claim is resolved; and (ii) resolved claims for which payment has not yet been paid to the Indemnified Party.

|(b)||Every right and remedy provided herein shall be cumulative with every other right and remedy, whether conferred herein, at law, or in equity, and may be enforced concurrently herewith, and no waiver by any Party of the performance of any obligation by the other shall be construed as a waiver of the same or any other default then, theretofore, or thereafter occurring or existing.|

This Agreement creates no fiduciary or other special relationship between the Parties, and no such relationship otherwise exists.

No Party may assign any right or delegate any obligation hereunder, including by merger, consolidation, operation of law, or otherwise, without the written consent of all of the Parties and any purported assignment or delegation without such consent shall be void, in addition to constituting a material breach of this Agreement. This Agreement shall be binding on the permitted successors and assigns of the Parties.
