5.2.2 Prior to the expiration of the Founder Shares Lock-Up Period or the Private Placement Lock-Up Period, as the case may be, no Holder may assign or delegate such Holders rights, duties or obligations under this Agreement, in whole or in part, except in connection with a transfer of Registrable Securities by such Holder to a Permitted Transferee who agrees to become bound by this Agreement.

5.4. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in multiple counterparts (including facsimile or PDF counterparts), each of which shall be deemed an original, and all of which together shall constitute the same instrument, but only one of which need be produced.
5.5. Relationship of the Parties. For ease of administration, this Agreement is being executed so as to enable each Holder identified on the signature pages to enter into this Agreement, severally, but not jointly. The Company and each Holder agree with each other that (i) this Agreement shall be treated as if it were a separate agreement with respect to each Holder listed on the signature page, as if each Holder had executed a separate registration rights agreement naming only itself as a Holder, and (ii) no Holder listed on the signature page shall have any liability under this Agreement for the obligations of any other Holder so listed. The decision of each Holder to enter into this Agreement has been made by such Holder independently of any other Holder. Nothing contained herein, and no action taken by a Holder pursuant hereto or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute any Holder acting with any other Holder or Holders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity, or create a presumption that any Holder and any other Holder or Holders are in any way acting in concert or as a group with respect to such obligations or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
5.6. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including all agreements entered into pursuant hereto and all certificates and instruments delivered pursuant hereto and thereto, constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, representations, understandings, negotiations and discussions between the parties, whether oral or written.
