(a) The amount to be paid by Buyer to Seller for the Assets (the “Final Purchase Price”) shall be the Tentative Purchase Price as defined and determined in Section 1.3(c) below, as the Tentative Purchase Price may be adjusted after the Closing pursuant to the provisions of Section 1.5(a) and Section 1.6 below. The Final Purchase Price shall be paid in accordance with the provisions of Section 1.7 below.

(b) Not later than thirty (30) calendar days prior to the Closing, Seller will deliver to Buyer (i) an estimate of the Closing Net Working Capital, which estimate shall be the Net Working Capital of the Business as of the end of the most recent accounting month for which internal financial statements are available (the “Estimated Closing Net Working Capital”) and (ii) an estimate of the book value of the capital assets acquired for the 787 program as

-9-


contemplated by the capital plan in the Memorandum of Agreement (787), without regard to time period (the “787 Assets”) as of the Closing Date (the “Estimated 787 Book Value”).

(c) The Final Purchase Price shall be calculated with reference to an amount determined on or before the Closing Date in accordance with this Section 1.3 (the “Tentative Purchase Price”). The Tentative Purchase Price shall be the sum of (x) the book value of the Assets as reflected on the Audited Interim Financial Statements (reduced by the amount of capitalized interest reflected therein) including an unaudited value of Spares Inventory as of February 17, 2005 as set forth on a schedule attached to the Audited Interim Financial Statements plus (y) One Hundred Ninety-Two Million Four Hundred Thousand Dollars ($192,400,000), as adjusted as follows:

(i) If the Estimated Closing Net Working Capital is greater than or less than the Target Net Working Capital Amount, the Tentative Purchase Price shall be increased by such excess or decreased by such shortfall, as applicable.

(ii) The Tentative Purchase Price shall be increased by the amount of the Estimated 787 Book Value, less the aggregate book value of the 787 Assets as reflected on the Audited Interim Financial Statements.

(d) In order to determine the Final Purchase Price, the Tentative Purchase Price shall be adjusted after the Closing pursuant to the provisions of Section 1.5(a) and Section 1.6 below.

(e) For purposes of the adjustments to the Tentative Purchase Price and Final Purchase Price provided in this Section 1.3 and Section 1.5(a) and Section 1.6 below, and also for purposes of determining the amount by which the Tentative Purchase Price and Final Purchase Price shall be considered to have been paid in accordance with Section 1.7 below by way of assumption by the Buyer of Accrued Vacation Liability, Accrued Vacation Liability and any estimates thereof shall be included as the amount determined multiplied by 1.0765 in order to reflect the payroll taxes related thereto.

1.4 Allocation of Final Purchase Price.

(a) The consideration for the Assets provided herein shall be allocated among the various categories of Assets for Tax purposes in accordance with U.S. Treasury Regulations §§1.1060-1 (a)(1) and 1.338-6(b) pursuant to a schedule prepared in accordance with the provisions of Section 1.4(b) (as finalized pursuant to Section 1.4(b) and, to the extent applicable, Section 1.4(c), the “Allocation Schedule”). Buyer and Seller shall execute and file all federal, state, local and foreign Tax Returns in accordance with the Allocation Schedule (with appropriate changes, if necessary, in the case of Tax Returns other than United States federal Income Tax Returns) and shall not take any position with respect to Taxes before any Governmental Authority or in any judicial Proceeding that is inconsistent with such allocation, except as otherwise required pursuant to (i) Court Order (including for this purpose an arbitration award only if it is described in clause (ii) or (iii) of this sentence), (ii) a determination of a Tax Arbitrator pursuant to an arbitration conducted in accordance with Section 1.4(c) below that a Tax Return preparer for Seller or Buyer would be subject to penalty under Section 6694 of the

-10-


Code as a result of signing a Tax Return based on such allocation, or (iii) a final “determination” (as that term is defined in Section 1313(a) of the Code) or similar determination pursuant to state, local or foreign Tax law. Buyer and Seller shall each timely file a Form 8594 with the IRS in accordance with the requirements of Section 1060 of the Code.

(b) Within ninety (90) days after the Closing Date, Buyer shall draft and provide to Seller a draft Allocation Schedule in which the consideration for the Assets as determined for federal income Tax purposes (“Tax Purchase Price”) shall be allocated solely to Assets and among the categories thereof in accordance with U.S. Treasury Regulations §§1.1060-1(a)(1) and 1.338-6(b) and the provisions of this Section 1.4. Such draft Allocation Schedule shall be prepared by Buyer so as to make such allocation based upon their net book value as reflected on the books of Seller maintained for financial reporting purposes and as adjusted through the date of Closing, unless (i) otherwise agreed by Seller and Buyer, or (ii) required as the result of a determination by an independent third party appraiser (after giving Seller and Buyer the opportunity to provide such data and information as they believe pertinent thereto) in connection with the preparation of the Allocation Schedule that such net book value cannot reasonably be considered to represent fair market value of the applicable Assets. Unless Seller shall, within ten (10) days after receipt of such draft Allocation Schedule, give notice to Buyer of its objection to the draft Allocation Schedule, which objection shall not be unreasonable, the draft Allocation Schedule shall become the final Allocation Schedule.

(c) Any disagreement regarding the allocation contained in the draft Allocation Schedule prepared by Buyer pursuant to Section 1.4(b), whether arising as contemplated pursuant to Section 1.4(b) or thereafter in connection with the filing of any Tax Return or any Proceeding related to Taxes, shall be submitted for final and binding resolution to a Tax partner at the Neutral Accounting Firm to resolve such disagreements (the “Tax Arbitrator”). Buyer and Seller shall instruct the Tax Arbitrator to choose either the allocation schedule proposed by Buyer or the allocation schedule proposed by Seller and to deliver to Buyer and Seller, as promptly as practicable and in any event within ninety (90) calendar days after his or her appointment, a written report setting forth the resolution of any such disagreement determined in accordance with this Section 1.4. The determination of the Tax Arbitrator shall be final and binding upon Buyer and Seller. The fees, expenses and costs of the Tax Arbitrator shall be borne one hundred percent (100%) by the party whose position is rejected by the Tax Arbitrator. Other than such fees and expenses of the Tax Arbitrator, Buyer and Seller shall each be responsible for their own costs and expenses incurred in connection with any actions taken pursuant to this Section 1.4.

1.5 Allocation of Expenses. On the Closing Date, the following expenses attributable to the Business shall be allocated between and are hereby assumed by Buyer on the one hand and Seller on the other hand as follows:

(a) Taxes, Utilities, and Prepaid Expenses. All state, county and local ad valorem Taxes on real or personal property shall be apportioned between Buyer and Seller as of 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) on the Closing Date, computed on the basis of the fiscal year for which the same are levied. All utility charges, gas charges, electric charges, water charges, water rents and sewer rents, if any, shall be apportioned between Buyer and Seller as of 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) on the Closing Date, to the extent feasible, based upon a meter reading, and to the

-11-


extent not feasible, based upon a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days in the period for which such charges or rents are imposed, ending on and including the Closing Date (as to Seller’s allocation), and the denominator of which is the total number of days in such period, with Buyer being responsible for the balance. All prepaid expenses paid by Seller on or prior to the Closing Date in respect of the Business (other than in respect of Taxes) shall be apportioned between Buyer and Seller as of 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) on the Closing Date computed on the basis of the benefit received by Seller on or prior to the Closing Date and the benefit to be received by Buyer subsequent to the Closing Date with respect to any Contract or other matter to which the prepaid expense relates. All prorations shall be made insofar as feasible on the Closing Date, except to such extent such prorations are reflected in the Estimated Closing Net Working Capital. During the ninety (90) day period subsequent to the Closing Date, Seller shall advise Buyer and Buyer shall advise Seller of any actual changes to such prorations, and such changes shall be taken into account in calculation of the Final Purchase Price as an increase or decrease, as applicable, at the end of such ninety (90) day period. In the event Buyer or Seller shall receive bills either (i) after the Closing Date for expenses incurred on or prior to the Closing Date that were not prorated in accordance with this Section 1.5(a), or (ii) more than ninety (90) days after the Closing Date that were not prorated and taken into account in the calculation of the Final Purchase Price, then, in either such case, Buyer or Seller, as the case may be, shall promptly notify the other party in writing as to the amount of the expense subject to proration and the responsible party shall promptly pay its portion of such expense (or, in the event such expense has been paid on behalf of the responsible party, reimburse the other party for its portion of such expense), and such expense shall not be taken into account in the calculation of either the Tentative Purchase Price or the Final Purchase Price.

(b) Transfer Taxes. Buyer and Seller shall cooperate in preparing, executing and filing use, sales, real estate, transfer and similar Tax Returns relating to the purchase and sale of the Assets. Buyer shall be responsible for and shall duly and timely pay, or within five (5) Business Days after demand therefor shall reimburse Seller for any payment by Seller of, all transfer Taxes, including any penalties, interest and additions to Tax relating to such transfer Taxes, incurred in connection with the purchase and sale of the Assets, regardless of (i) when such transfer Taxes and such other amounts may be assessed or levied or action otherwise taken to collect such transfer Taxes, (ii) whether the incidence or responsibility for such transfer Taxes and such other amounts (as determined without regard hereto) may fall upon Seller or Buyer, and (iii) whether such transfer Taxes and such other amounts may be assessed, levied or otherwise collected from Seller or Buyer; provided, however, Seller shall bear (x) one half (1/2) of transfer Taxes to the extent such transfer Taxes are applied to amounts not greater than the net book value of the applicable Assets as carried on the books of Seller as adjusted through the date of Closing and (y) one half (1/2) of transfer Taxes (but not more than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000)) to the extent such transfer Taxes are applied to amounts greater than the net book value of the applicable Assets as carried on the books of Seller as adjusted through the date of Closing. Such Tax Returns shall be prepared in a manner that is consistent with the determination of the aggregate fair market value of the Assets by the classes contemplated by Section 1.4.

(c) Tax Prosecution Rights. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary other than Section 9.4(b) to the extent provided in Section 9.4(c) hereof, Seller shall have the right (at its own expense) to prosecute and continue to prosecute, and to control the

-12-


conduct of, any Tax audit or examination and any administrative appeal or litigation relating thereto, or any other Tax Proceeding, to the extent it relates to any Taxes with respect to which Seller is obligated hereunder to indemnify the Buyer Group Members; and Seller shall have the right to determine whether and to what extent to extend or waive any statute of limitations for the assessment of any Tax with respect to which the Seller is obligated hereunder to indemnify the Buyer Group Members; provided, however, without the consent of Buyer (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), Seller shall not settle any such audit, examination, appeal, litigation or Proceeding to the extent that Liability of the Buyer for Taxes of the type that are the subject of the settlement for any period or portion thereof after Closing would reasonably be expected to be increased as a result of the settlement (provided further, the obligation of Seller to obtain such consent of Buyer shall be subject to the execution by Buyer of a confidentiality agreement setting forth reasonable terms pursuant to which Buyer will maintain the confidentiality of any information provided by Seller to Buyer in connection with such consent or the matters to which it relates). Any refunds obtained for such claims for any Tax years prior to the Tax year in which the Closing occurs and the pro rata portion of any refunds obtained for such claims for the Tax year in which the Closing occurs, net of the expenses incurred in obtaining such refunds, shall be paid to Seller.

1.6 Purchase Price Adjustment; Determination of Final Purchase Price.

(a) Within ninety (90) calendar days after the Closing Date, Seller shall prepare and deliver to Buyer:

(i) a statement setting forth the Closing Net Working Capital (such statement, the “Closing Working Capital Statement”);

(ii) a statement setting forth the actual book value of the 787 Assets (the “Actual 787 Book Value”) as of the Closing Date (the “Actual 787 Book Value Statement”); and

(iii) a statement setting forth:

(A) the number of employees of the Wichita Division – Boeing Commercial Airplanes on the Closing Date (the “Number of Employees”), and

(B) the Number of Employees that both (i) did not receive offers of employment from Buyer and (ii) are entitled to receive severance under Seller’s severance plans or policies in effect as of the date hereof as a result of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and who have either received or have begun to receive such severance payments

(the “Severance Statement”) and, together with the Closing Working Capital Statement and the Actual 787 Book Value Statement, the “Purchase Price Adjustment Statements”).

(b) Buyer shall cooperate with Seller in connection with, and shall furnish to Seller all such information as Seller may reasonably require, in the preparation of the Purchase

-13-


Price Adjustment Statements. Buyer shall provide to Seller in writing promptly after offers of employment are made, the Number of Employees that received offers of employment from Buyer and a listing of the names of each such employee. Except as set forth on Schedule 1.6(b), the Purchase Price Adjustment Statements will be prepared using the same accounting methods, policies, practices and procedures, with consistent classifications and estimation methodologies as were used in the preparation of the Target Net Working Capital Amount, the Estimated Closing Net Working Capital Amount and the Estimated 787 Book Value, to the extent applicable, and will not include any changes in assets or Liabilities as a result of purchase accounting adjustments arising from or resulting as a consequence of the transactions contemplated hereby or subsequent changes in accounting policy or procedure. In the event that the Closing Date does not occur at a financial week or month end for accounting purposes, the parties shall agree on mutually acceptable roll forward or roll back procedures. Buyer shall make its employees available to assist Seller in the preparation of the Purchase Price Adjustment Statements.

(c) Each party shall provide the other party and its representatives with reasonable access to books and records and relevant personnel during the preparation of the Purchase Price Adjustment Statements and the resolution of any disputes that may arise under this Section 1.6 and Section 1.7.

(d) If Buyer disagrees with the determination of the Closing Net Working Capital as shown on the Closing Working Capital Statement, the Actual 787 Book Value as shown on the Actual 787 Book Value Statement, the information shown on the Severance Statement or the determination of the Purchase Price Differential, Buyer shall notify Seller in writing of such disagreement within sixty (60) calendar days after delivery of the applicable Purchase Price Adjustment Statement, which notice shall describe the nature of any such disagreement in reasonable detail, identify the specific items involved and the dollar amount of each such disagreement and provide reasonable supporting documentation for each such disagreement. After the end of such sixty (60) calendar day period, neither Buyer nor Seller may introduce additional disagreements with respect to any item in the applicable Purchase Price Adjustment Statement or increase the amount of any disagreement, and any item not so identified shall be deemed to be agreed to by Buyer and Seller and will be final and binding upon the parties. During the sixty (60) calendar day period of its review, Buyer shall have reasonable access to any documents, schedules or work papers used in the preparation of the Purchase Price Adjustment Statements.

(e) Buyer and Seller agree to negotiate in good faith to resolve any such disagreement. If Buyer and Seller are unable to resolve all disagreements properly identified by Buyer pursuant to Section 1.6(d) within thirty (30) calendar days after delivery to Seller of written notice of such disagreement, then such disagreements may be submitted by either party for final and binding resolution to the Neutral Accounting Firm to resolve such disagreements (the “Accounting Arbitrator”). The Accounting Arbitrator will only consider those items and amounts set forth in a Purchase Price Adjustment Statement as to which Buyer and Seller have disagreed within the time periods and on the terms specified above and must resolve the matter in accordance with the terms and provisions of this Agreement. The Accounting Arbitrator shall deliver to Buyer and Seller, as promptly as practicable and in any event within ninety (90) calendar days after its appointment, a written report setting forth the resolution of any such

-14-


disagreement determined in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. The Accounting Arbitrator shall select as a resolution the position of either Buyer or Seller for each item of disagreement and may not impose an alternative resolution. The Accounting Arbitrator shall make its determination based solely on presentations and supporting material provided by the parties and not pursuant to any independent review. The determination of the Accounting Arbitrator shall be final and binding upon Buyer and Seller. The fees, expenses and costs of the Accounting Arbitrator shall be borne one hundred percent (100%) by the party whose aggregate position was furthest from the aggregate final determination of the Accounting Arbitrator. Other than such fees and expenses of the Accounting Arbitrator, Buyer and Seller shall each be responsible for their own costs and expenses incurred in connection with any actions taken pursuant to Section 1.6.

(f) Except as set forth on Schedule 1.6(b), the parties hereto agree that the procedure set forth herein with respect to the Purchase Price Adjustment Statements, and the purchase price adjustment provided herein and in Section 1.7, are not intended to permit the introduction of different accounting methods, policies, practices, procedures, classifications or estimation methodologies for purposes of determining the asset and Liability balances from those used in the preparation of the Audited Financial Statements.

(g) If after the Closing Date, Seller pays any Liability on the Closing Working Capital Statement, then Buyer and Seller agree that such Liability shall to the extent of such payment be deemed removed from the Closing Working Capital Statement if such payment is made prior to the date on which the Closing Working Capital Statement is delivered, or if after such date Buyer shall promptly reimburse Seller for the amount of such payment if Buyer did not make payment before receiving written notice from Seller of Seller’s payment.

(h) The Tentative Purchase Price shall be subjected to the following adjustments and, as so adjusted, shall be the Final Purchase Price:

(i) If the Closing Net Working Capital as finally determined in accordance with this Section 1.6 is less than the Estimated Closing Net Working Capital, the Tentative Purchase Price shall be decreased on a dollar-for-dollar basis by the amount of such shortfall, and if the Closing Net Working Capital is greater than the Estimated Closing Net Working Capital, the Tentative Purchase Price shall be increased on a dollar-for-dollar basis by the amount of such excess.

(ii) If the Actual 787 Book Value as finally determined in accordance with this Section 1.6 is less than the Estimated 787 Book Value, the Tentative Purchase Price shall be decreased on a dollar-for-dollar basis by the amount of such shortfall, and if the Actual 787 Book Value is greater than the Estimated 787 Book Value, the Tentative Purchase Price shall be increased on a dollar-for-dollar basis by the amount of such excess.

-15-


(iii) If the sum of (A) the Number of Employees referred to in Section 1.6(a)(iii)(B) plus (B) Factor A is greater than ten percent of the sum of (C) the Number of Employees plus (D) Factor B, the Tentative Purchase Price shall be increased by an amount determined pursuant to the following formula:

((A/B) – .1000) x 100) x $2,000,000

Where “A” represents the sum of (A) the Number of Employees referred to in Section 1.6(a)(iii)(B) plus (B) Factor A and “B” represents the sum of (C) the Number of Employees plus (D) Factor B.

If the Final Purchase Price is less than or greater than the Tentative Purchase Price, the amount of such difference (the “Purchase Price Differential”) shall be paid as provided in Section 1.7.

(i) As an additional adjustment to the purchase price for the Assets (but not to be taken into account in the calculation of the Tentative Purchase Price or Final Purchase Price nor considered in connection with payment thereof under Section 1.7), within thirty (30) days after filing its Kansas Corporation Income Tax Return on Kansas Department of Revenue Form K 120 (or any successor form) for each taxable year of Seller ended after the Closing Date during which any Industrial Revenue Bond remains outstanding in the hands of Seller, Seller shall pay to Buyer an amount equal to one-half (1/2) of the reduction in Kansas corporate Income Tax actually payable by Seller pursuant to such Kansas Corporation Income Tax Return (including a refund of such Tax) solely to the extent attributable to exemption of interest on the Industrial Revenue Bonds from gross income for purposes of Kansas corporate Income Taxation (calculated by comparing the amount of such Tax imposed upon or refundable to Seller pursuant to such Kansas Corporation Income Tax Return with the amount of such Tax that would be so imposed or refundable if such interest were not so excludible); provided, however, for the taxable year of Seller during which the Closing occurs, the amount Seller is required to pay to Buyer under this Section 1.6(i) shall be one half (1/2) of the amount equal to the product of (i) such tax reduction for the entire taxable year in which the Closing Date occurs multiplied by (ii) a fraction, the numerator of which is the amount of interest income accrued on Industrial Revenue Bonds during such post-Closing Date portion of such taxable year and the denominator of which is the total amount of interest income accrued on Industrial Revenue Bonds during all of such taxable year. In the event of any final determination for any reason that any such interest is not so excludible from gross income of Seller, the Buyer shall repay to Seller the amount of any payment made by Seller to Buyer pursuant to this Section 1.6(i) based upon excludability of such interest from gross income of Seller for Kansas corporate Income Tax purposes within thirty (30) days after notice by Seller to Buyer of such determination and the amount of repayment required by this sentence. Any payment or repayment pursuant to this Section 1.6(i) shall be treated as an adjustment to purchase price for federal and state Income Tax purposes to the extent required or permitted by applicable Law regarding Taxes imposed on income.

(j) For purposes of eliminating doubt, the parties acknowledge that, by virtue of the definitions of Assets, Excluded Assets, Assumed Liabilities, and Excluded Liabilities, in the calculation of Closing Net Working Capital and Actual 787 Book Value, (i) there shall not be taken into account as assets any Assets that relate to Taxes collected or withheld by Seller and payable to any Governmental Authority and (ii) there shall not be taken into account as Liabilities any accrued and unpaid Taxes related to the Business for which Seller is responsible under this Agreement.

-16-


1.7 Payment of Purchase Price at Closing; Adjustment for Overpayment or Underpayment of Purchase Price. Payment shall be made with respect to the Tentative Purchase Price and Final Purchase Price as follows:

(a) At the Closing, Buyer shall pay to Seller, by means of a wire transfer of immediately available U.S. funds to one or more accounts designated in writing by Seller to Buyer at least four (4) days prior to the Closing Date, an amount equal to the Tentative Purchase Price less each of the following:

(i) the amount of the Liabilities of the Business reflected in the Audited Interim Financial Statements, excluding pension Liabilities, retiree medical Liabilities and Accrued Sick Leave (the “Estimated Adjusted Liabilities”); and

(ii) Two Hundred and Forty-Three Million Dollars ($243,000,000) as an agreed credit against the cash payment of Tentative Purchase Price relating to the treatment of pension Liabilities, retiree medical Liabilities and Accrued Sick Leave pursuant to Section 6.2 below.

(b) Buyer and Seller hereby agree that there will be no adjustment to the Tentative Purchase Price, the Final Purchase Price, or the payment thereof, for the actual amount of pension Liabilities, retiree medical Liabilities or Accrued Sick Leave Liability as of the Closing Date. Subsequent to Closing, the provisions of Section 1.6 and this Section 1.7 shall be applied consistently with the immediately preceding sentence.

(c) The Purchase Price Differential shall be paid (i) by Buyer to Seller if the Final Purchase Price is greater than the Tentative Purchase Price, or (ii) by Seller to Buyer if the Final Purchase Price is less than the Tentative Purchase Price, by means of a wire transfer of immediately available U.S. funds to one or more accounts designated in writing by the party to be paid within five (5) Business Days after determination of the amount of the Purchase Price Differential in accordance with Section 1.6 hereof (or, if later, within four (4) days after such designation of one or more accounts) in an amount equal to the Purchase Price Differential, plus interest on the amount of the Purchase Price Differential from the Closing Date to the date of such payment thereof at the per annum rate equal to the rate announced by Citibank, N.A. in the City of New York as its base rate in effect on the Closing Date.

SECTION 2 CLOSING

SECTION 3 REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF SELLER

Subject to the disclosures set forth in the Schedules of Seller delivered to Buyer concurrently with the parties’ execution of this Agreement (each of which disclosures shall clearly indicate the Section and, if applicable, the Subsection of this Section 3 to which it relates, and each of which disclosures shall also be deemed to be representations and warranties made by Seller to Buyer under this Section 3), Seller represents and warrants to Buyer as follows:

3.1 Organization and Power and Authority of Seller. Seller is a corporation duly incorporated, validly existing and in good standing under the Laws of the State of Delaware. Seller has the corporate power and corporate authority to own or lease, use and operate the Assets and to carry on the Business as currently conducted. Seller is duly qualified to do business as a foreign corporation and is in good standing under the Laws of each state or other jurisdiction in which either the ownership or use of the properties or the nature of the activities conducted by it in connection with the Assets or the Business requires such qualification, except for such failures to qualify or be in good standing which individually or in the aggregate could not have a Material Adverse Effect.

3.2 Authority of Seller; Conflicts.

(a) Seller has the corporate power and corporate authority to execute, deliver and perform this Agreement and the Seller Transaction Agreements. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the Seller Transaction Agreements by Seller has been duly authorized and approved by all necessary corporate action. This Agreement has been duly authorized, executed and delivered by Seller and (assuming the valid authorization, execution and delivery of this Agreement by Buyer) is the legal, valid and binding obligation of Seller enforceable in accordance with its terms, and each Seller Transaction Agreement has been duly authorized by Seller and upon execution and delivery by Seller will be (assuming the valid authorization, execution and delivery by each other party thereto) the legal, valid and binding obligation of Seller enforceable in accordance with its terms, in each case subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and similar Laws of general application relating to or affecting creditors’ rights and to general equity principles.

(b) Except as set forth in Schedule 3.2(b), the execution and delivery by Seller of this Agreement and each Seller Transaction Agreement, and the performance by it of its obligations hereunder or thereunder, do not and will not:

(i) violate any provision of the certificate of incorporation or bylaws of Seller;

(ii) (A) violate any provision of applicable Law relating to Seller; (B) violate any provision of any order, arbitration award, judgment or decree to which Seller is subject; or (C) except as required under the HSR Act, ITAR or the Exon-Florio Amendment, require a registration, filing, application, notice, consent, approval, order, qualification or waiver with, to or from any Governmental Authority, except in any case under this clause, any violation, breach, default or non-compliance that would not individually or in the aggregate be reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect; or

-26-


(iii) (A) require a consent, approval or waiver from, or notice to, any party to an Assigned Contract, or (B) result in a breach of, cause a default under, give rise to a right of cancellation or termination under or result in acceleration of any obligation or loss of any benefit under, any Assigned Contract.

3.3 Financial Statements.

(a) Schedule 3.3(a) sets forth (i) an unaudited statement of assets to be acquired and liabilities to be assumed of the Business as of December 31, 2001, 2002 and 2003, and the related statement of products shipped and operating expenses of the Business for the fiscal years then ended (the “Unaudited Annual Financial Statements”) and (ii) an unaudited statement of assets to be acquired and liabilities to be assumed of the Business as of the Interim Date and related statement of products shipped and operating expenses of the Business for the nine (9) month period then ended (the “Unaudited Interim Financial Statements” and, collectively, with the Unaudited Annual Financial Statements, the “Unaudited Financial Statements”). The Unaudited Financial Statements were created specially by Seller in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby from Seller’s financial records. Except as set forth on Schedule 3.3(a), the Unaudited Annual Financial Statements and, subject to the foregoing circumstances with respect to their creation and the remainder of this Section 3.3, the Unaudited Interim Financial Statements, (i) are derived from and in accordance with the books and records of Seller; (ii) present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Business for the respective periods then ended; (iii) have been prepared in accordance with Seller’s normal practices for the Business (which practices are in accordance with GAAP, except, with respect to the Unaudited Interim Financial Statements, for normal year end adjustments, consistently applied with prior periods and with respect to the Unaudited Financial Statements, the absence of footnotes and other disclosures required by GAAP) and (iv) are true, complete and correct in all material respects. The Business has not operated as a separate “stand-alone” entity and the Unaudited Financial Statements do not present the results of operation that would have occurred if the Business had been operated as a “stand-alone” entity. As a result, certain judgments regarding financial allocations have been made as discussed more fully in the notes accompanying the Unaudited Financial Statements. In addition, in order to present Unaudited Financial Statements for the Business, a number of assumptions regarding the basis of presentation have been made, all of which are set forth on Schedule 3.3(a).

(b) Seller has established and maintains a system of internal accounting controls sufficient to provide reasonable assurances (i) that transactions, receipts and expenditures of Seller related to the Business and the Assets are being executed and made only in accordance with appropriate policies and procedures and appropriate authorizations of management and the board of directors of Seller, (ii) that transactions related to the Business and the Assets are recorded as necessary (A) to permit preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP and (B) to maintain accountability for assets and (iii) regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Assets. To the Knowledge of Seller, since December 31, 2001, Seller has not identified or been made aware of any fraud that involves the Assets, the Business or its management, or other current employees or any claim or allegation regarding any of the foregoing and Seller has received no written notice from its independent auditors regarding any of the foregoing. To the Knowledge of Seller, there are no significant deficiencies or material weaknesses in the design or operation

-27-


of Seller’s internal controls relating to the Assets or the Business which could reasonably be expected to adversely affect Seller’s ability to record, process, summarize and report financial data.

As of the date of this Agreement and as of the date of Closing (a) Buyer is and will continue to be a “U.S. person” as defined in ITAR, and (b) Buyer is not and will continue not to be a “foreign national” as that term is used in the EAR, and transfers to Buyer of Seller’s technical data and technology will therefore not effect an “export” of such technical data and technology under either the ITAR or the EAR.

SECTION 5 ACTION PRIOR TO THE CLOSING DATE

Buyer and Seller covenant and agree to take the following actions between the date hereof (or for purposes of Section 5.3(b), February 18, 2005) and through the Closing Date:

5.1 Access to Information. Subject to any and all applicable Law and prior to Closing, Seller shall permit Buyer and its representatives to have reasonable access to the Assets and the Business, Seller’s properties, Contracts related to the Business, Governmental Permits, and books and records and other documents and data of the Business, during regular business hours and upon reasonable advance written notice, and Seller shall otherwise cooperate and assist, to the extent reasonably requested by Buyer, with Buyer’s investigation of the Assets and the Business; provided, however, that to the extent any such documents or information are subject to confidentiality restrictions on disclosure, Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain consent to the disclosure thereof or, if such consent cannot be obtained, Seller shall provide as much information regarding such documents or information as is permissible under such confidentiality restrictions on disclosure (e.g., by means of redacted disclosure or of summarization) and shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to obtain consent, if required, to such arrangements, but if any such consent cannot be obtained, Seller shall not be required to violate any obligation of confidentiality to which Seller is subject in discharging its obligations pursuant to this Section 5.1, nor shall the foregoing require Seller to permit any inspection of documents subject to Seller’s attorney-client privilege, or to permit inspection or to disclose any information, to the extent that in Seller’s reasonable judgment it would result in the loss of trade secret protection at law or in equity for any trade secrets; provided, further, that Buyer and its representatives comply with the Confidentiality Agreement. The foregoing sentence notwithstanding, with respect to the agreements listed on Schedule 1.1(b)(xv), Seller shall only be obligated to request in writing authorization from the relevant party to provide such confidential information to Buyer. To the extent Buyer requests copies of documents from Seller pursuant to this Section 5.1, Buyer may direct its request to an appropriate person at the Facilities and, if Buyer does so, simultaneously to an Authorized Representative of Seller that is not located at the Facilities. Buyer agrees that such investigation shall be conducted in such a manner as not to interfere unreasonably with the operations of Seller, and Buyer and its representatives shall not speak to any of the employees of the Business without the prior consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) of an Authorized Representative of Seller, such communications shall be limited to the purposes of effecting the contemplated transactions and transition planning and shall only be made in the presence of an Authorized Representative of Seller. With respect to Buyer’s communication with employees of the Business located at the Wichita Facility, Seller agrees to make an Authorized Representative of Seller available at the Wichita Facility at all reasonable times. Despite the foregoing, Buyer shall have reasonable direct access to those employees of Seller listed on Schedule 5.1 solely for purposes of reasonable ongoing due diligence, transition planning and labor union consultation relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement without the prior consent of Seller and without a representative of Seller being present, so long as Buyer does not interfere with the day-to-day responsibilities of such employees, such employees will not be directly involved in negotiations with Seller relating to transactions contemplated by this Agreement, to the extent counsel for Buyer contacts such employees, such contact is only for the purpose of obtaining information or with respect to assistance in negotiation with parties other than Seller, and Buyer acknowledges that Seller is not responsible for any information provided to Buyer by such an employee. To the extent any Person listed on Schedule 5.1 is an employee of Seller employed as an attorney for Seller, Buyer shall only be allowed reasonable access to such Person with respect to factual matters but shall not be entitled to discuss matters protected by the attorney-client privilege or

-45-


that constitute attorney work product. Buyer shall not be permitted to solicit legal advice from such Person and hereby acknowledges that any such Person is counsel to Seller and not to Buyer.

5.2 Consents of Third Parties; Governmental Approvals.

(a) Buyer and Seller will act diligently and reasonably to secure, on or prior to the Closing Date, the Required Consents; provided, however, that neither Seller nor Buyer shall be required to incur any financial or other obligation in connection therewith (other than normal and customary transaction costs and filing fees not otherwise required hereby to be incurred by the other party).

(b) During the period on or prior to the Closing Date, Buyer and Seller shall act diligently and reasonably, and shall cooperate with each other, to secure any consents and approvals of any Governmental Authority required to be obtained by them in order to permit the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, or to otherwise satisfy the conditions set forth in Section 7.2 and Section 8.2.

(c) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each party shall use its reasonable efforts to cause the Closing to occur (including, without limitation, the use of reasonable efforts to execute any documents reasonably requested by either party hereto and to satisfy such party’s conditions to Closing set forth herein).

(d) In the event that any and all novations, transfer or other agreements, consents, approvals or waivers necessary for the assignment, transfer and/or novation of any Assigned Contract, or any right or benefit arising thereunder or resulting therefrom, shall not have been obtained on or prior to the Closing Date, then as of the Closing Date, this Agreement, to the extent permitted by Law, shall constitute full and equitable assignment by Seller to Buyer of all of right, title and interest of Seller in and to, and all Liabilities of Seller under, such Assigned Contracts, and Buyer shall be deemed Seller’s agent for purpose of completing, fulfilling and discharging all Liabilities of Seller after the Closing Date under any such Assigned Contract. The parties shall take all necessary steps and actions to provide Buyer with the benefits of such Assigned Contracts, and to relieve Seller of the performance and other obligations thereunder, including entry into subcontracts for the performance thereof. Buyer agrees to pay, perform and discharge, and indemnify Seller against and hold Seller harmless from, all Liabilities of Seller relating to such performance or failure to perform under such Assigned Contracts provided that Buyer receives the rights and benefits thereunder.

(e) In the event that Seller shall be unable to make the equitable assignment described in Section 5.2(d), or if such attempted assignment would give rise to any right of termination, or would otherwise adversely affect the rights of Seller or Buyer under any such Assigned Contract, or would not assign all of the rights of Seller thereunder at the Closing, Seller and Buyer shall continue to cooperate and use all reasonable efforts to provide Buyer with all such rights. To the extent that any such consents and waivers are not obtained, or until the impediments to such assignment are resolved, Seller shall use all reasonable commercial efforts (without the expenditure, in the aggregate, of any material sum) to (i) provide to Buyer, at the request of Buyer, the benefits of any such Assigned Contract to the extent related to the Business, (ii) cooperate in any lawful arrangement designed to provide such benefits to Buyer

-46-


and (iii) enforce, at the request of and for the account of Buyer, any rights of Seller arising from any such Assigned Contract against any third party (including any Governmental Authority), including the right to elect to terminate in accordance with the terms thereof upon the advice of Buyer. To the extent that Buyer is provided the benefits of any Assigned Contract referred to herein (whether from Seller or otherwise), Buyer shall perform at the direction of Seller and for the benefit of any third party (including any Governmental Authority), and shall assume the Liabilities of Seller thereunder or in connection therewith. Buyer agrees to pay, perform and discharge, and indemnify Seller against and hold Seller harmless from, all Liabilities of Seller relating to such performance or failure to perform. In the event of a failure of such indemnity, Seller shall cease to be obligated under this Agreement in respect of the Assigned Contract which is the subject of such failure.

(f) Except as otherwise provided herein, the obligations of the parties under this Section 5.2 shall not include any requirement of Seller or Buyer to expend money (other than normal legal and professional fees or filing fees), commence or participate in any litigation or offer or grant any accommodation (financial or otherwise) to any third party.

5.3 Operations on or Prior to the Closing Date.

(a) During the period from the date hereof to and including the Closing Date, except as required by Law, this Agreement, or as set forth on Schedule 5.3(a), Seller shall:

(i) conduct, operate and carry on the Business in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice and use reasonable commercial efforts to preserve intact its current business organization, use reasonable commercial efforts to maintain in all material respects the ordinary and customary relationships of the Business with its suppliers, customers, landlords, employees and others having business relationships with Seller in connection with the Business; provided, however, nothing in this Section 5.3(a)(i) shall prohibit or otherwise restrict in any way the operation of any other business of Seller;

(ii) maintain the Assets in a state of repair and condition that materially complies with Requirements of Law and is consistent with the requirements and conduct of the Business as currently required or conducted;

(v) subject to compliance with applicable Law and as determined to be necessary by Seller’s in-house counsel to preserve Seller’s attorney-client privilege, confer from time to time as reasonably requested by Buyer with one or more representatives of Buyer to discuss any material changes or developments in the operational matters of the Business and the general status of the ongoing operations of the Business; provided such request is in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.1 herein.

-47-


(b) Without limiting the provisions of Section 5.3(a), except as set forth on Schedule 5.3(b), as otherwise contemplated by this Agreement or with the written approval of Buyer (which approval, except with respect to Sections 5.3(b)(ix), (xv) and (xvi) below, shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, provided that Seller acknowledges that it is reasonable for Buyer to withhold its approval of the matters set forth in Section 5.3(b)(vi) if Buyer, in its good faith judgment, determines such matter would have an adverse impact on Buyer’s operation of the Business after the Closing Date and, provided further that no inference shall be drawn from the foregoing proviso as to whether it is reasonable or unreasonable for Buyer to withhold consent for any other reason), on or between February 18, 2005 and the Closing Date, Seller shall not do any of the following:

(i) make any material change in the Business or its operations, except such changes as may be required to comply with any applicable Requirements of Law;

(vii) make any change in the compensation of employees of the Business, other than changes made pursuant to existing employment or collective bargaining agreements or required by any Requirement of Law; provided that, the provisions of this Section 5.3(b)(vii) shall not apply to payments or awards made under Seller’s incentive compensation programs consistent with past practices of Seller or changes to which Buyer has consented.

-48-


(viii) enter into any Contract which would be included in the definition of Assigned Contracts or terminate, extend, renew or make any material modification to any existing Assigned Contract, in each case other than any Contracts related to the Business or any extensions thereof which involve ten million dollars ($10,000,000) or less and which are entered into or modified in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice;

(ix) with respect to the Business, merge or consolidate with, acquire all or substantially all of the assets of, or otherwise acquire, any Person, or make any material investment in any Person;

(xviii) take, or agree in writing or otherwise to take, any of the actions described in clauses (i) through (xvii) of this Section 5.3(b); or

(xix) take any action which would reasonably be expected to make any of Seller’s representations or warranties contained in this Agreement untrue or incorrect (such that the condition set forth in the first sentence of Section 7.1 would not be satisfied) or prevent Seller from performing or cause Seller not to perform one or more covenants required hereunder to be performed by Seller (such that the condition set forth in Section 7.1 would not be satisfied).

5.4 Notice of Events or Circumstances. Seller and Buyer will notify the other promptly after learning of the occurrence of any event or circumstance which would reasonably be expected to cause any condition to Closing not to be satisfied and in such event, the parties will negotiate in good faith to attempt to resolve the consequences of such circumstance; provided, that the failure to so notify the other party or to take any action in response to any such notification shall not affect a party’s rights hereunder, including any right to assert the failure of satisfaction of a condition or to terminate this Agreement in respect thereof or to assert a claim for indemnification pursuant to Section 9 hereof.

5.5 Confidentiality. The terms of the Confidentiality Agreement are hereby incorporated by reference and shall continue in full force and effect until the Closing, at which time such Confidentiality Agreement and the obligations of Buyer under this Section 5.5 shall terminate. If this Agreement is, for any reason, terminated prior to the Closing, the Confidentiality Agreement shall continue in full force and effect in respect of such confidential information in accordance with its terms. Buyer agrees that, if it discovers that after the Closing Date that any Hired Employee possesses any confidential or proprietary document and which Buyer is not entitled to possess under this Agreement, the BCA Intellectual Property License Agreement, the Transition Services Agreement, the BCA Supply Agreement or the IDS Supply Agreement, Buyer will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such employee to immediately return it to Seller. Buyer acknowledges that nothing herein entitles Buyer or any Hired Employee to use the information contained in such confidential or proprietary document.

5.6 Notification of Certain Matters. In the event that (other than as a result of the updating of Schedules by Seller pursuant to Section 11.7) any of the Persons set forth on Schedule 5.6 (x) obtains actual Knowledge prior to the Closing Date of facts or circumstances that constitute a breach of one or more representations or warranties of Seller, (y) is actually aware that such facts and circumstances constitute a breach of one or more representations or warranties of Seller and (z) believes that such breaches would, individually or in the aggregate, entitle Buyer not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 below, Buyer shall promptly notify Seller in writing of such breach(es) (the “Discovered Breach(es)”) and of such

-50-


belief. If (x) Buyer does not so notify Seller prior to Closing, (y) the Discovered Breach(es) entitled Buyer not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 below and (z) the Closing nevertheless occurs, Buyer shall be deemed to have waived any and all rights, remedies or other recourse against Seller to which Buyer might otherwise be entitled in respect of any such breach(es), including any rights or remedies under Section 9. If Buyer does so notify Seller prior to Closing, the following shall apply:

(a) If Seller agrees that the Discovered Breach(es) would entitle Buyer not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 below, Seller shall so notify Buyer in writing within five (5) Business Days after receipt of Buyer’s notice (and in any event, prior to the Closing) and it shall be conclusively established that Buyer is entitled not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 below. If Seller so notifies Buyer and the Closing nevertheless occurs, Buyer shall be deemed to have waived any and all rights, remedies or other recourse against Seller to which Buyer might otherwise be entitled in respect of any such Discovered Breach(es), including any rights or remedies under Section 9.

(b) If Seller does not notify Buyer in writing within five (5) Business Days after receipt of Buyer’s notice (and in any event prior to the Closing) that Seller agrees that such Discovered Breach(es) would entitle Buyer not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 below, or if Seller notifies Buyer in writing that Seller does not so agree, then any and all rights, remedies or other recourse against Seller to which Buyer is entitled in respect of such Discovered Breach(es), including any rights or remedies under Section 7.1 or Section 9, shall be deemed not to have been waived and shall not be affected or impaired by any Knowledge, belief or other matter referred to in this Section 5.6.

If Buyer delivers a notice to Seller pursuant to this Section 5.6 more than one hundred ten (110) days after the date of this Agreement, the date provided for in Section 10.1(a)(iii) shall be extended to the date which is ten (10) days following the date of such delivery.

5.7 HSR Filings; CFIUS.

(a) Buyer and Seller will each as promptly as practicable, but in no event later than five (5) Business Days following the execution and delivery of this Agreement, file with the United States Federal Trade Commission (the “FTC”) and the United States Department of Justice (the “DOJ”) the notification and report form, if any, required for the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and any supplemental information requested in connection therewith pursuant to the HSR Act. Each of Buyer and Seller shall be responsible for paying one-half of the applicable filing fee pursuant to the HSR Act with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Any such notification and report form and supplemental information will be in compliance with the requirements of the HSR Act. Seller and Buyer shall furnish to the other such necessary information and reasonable assistance as the other may request in connection with its preparation of any filing or submission which is necessary under the HSR Act. Seller and Buyer shall keep each other apprised of the status of any communications with, and inquiries or requests for additional information from, the FTC and the DOJ and shall comply promptly with any such inquiry or request. Seller and Buyer will use all reasonable efforts to obtain any clearance required under the HSR Act for the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and to request early termination under the HSR Act.

-51-


(b) Buyer and Seller will, as promptly as practicable, but in no event later than fifteen (15) calendar days following the execution and delivery of this Agreement, submit a joint filing (collectively, the “Joint Filing”) to CFIUS pursuant to 31 C.F.R. Part 800 with regard to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, provided that Buyer shall take primary responsibility for the preparation and submission of the Joint Filing. Buyer shall keep Seller informed of all material communications with CFIUS and any interested Governmental Authority concerning the Joint Filing. Seller shall cooperate with Buyer in the preparation and submission of the Joint Filing and provide all additional information reasonably necessary to obtain approval.

5.8 No Negotiation. Until such time as this Agreement shall have been terminated pursuant to Section 10, Seller shall not, directly or indirectly, through any officer, director, employee, representative or agent of Seller or any of its subsidiaries, take any action of any kind which might reduce the likelihood of, or interfere with, the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, including without limitation, soliciting, initiating, assisting, encouraging or entertaining any offers, inquiries or proposals from, discussing or negotiating with, providing any nonpublic information to or considering the merits of any inquiries or proposals from any Person (other than Buyer) relating to any business combination transaction involving the Business or the Assets (other than in the sale of inventory in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice), including without limitation through the sale of assets or stock or by merger. Seller shall notify Buyer within five (5) calendar days of receipt of any such offer, inquiry or proposal if Seller in good faith determines it is bona fide.

5.9 Itemization of IRB Assets. Prior to the Closing, subject to Buyer’s reasonable approval, Seller shall revise and update Schedule III to the Sublease (IRBs) so as to make such adjustment, if any, as may be required to identify correctly the assets to be leased to Buyer pursuant to the Sublease (IRBs) (i.e., to describe assets that, were they owned by Seller and not leased pursuant to the Lease Agreement (as defined in the Sublease (IRBs)), would be Assets as determined under the provisions of Section 1.1 hereof other than Section 1.1(a)(xvii) therein contained). In the event Buyer and Seller cannot agree with respect to the identification of such assets, such disagreement shall be treated as an Asset or Liability Dispute pursuant to Section 11.21(d).

5.10 Title Report and Survey. If Buyer wishes to object to a survey and/or title report (each a “Title Document”) required to be delivered to Buyer with respect to each Owned Property or Leased Property, Buyer shall provide Seller with written notice of Buyer’s objections with respect to a particular property (“Buyer’s Title Notice”) in reasonable specificity before: (a) if, prior to the date hereof, Buyer has received all Title Documents required to be delivered to Buyer with respect to a particular property, twenty-one (21) calendar days from the date hereof, or (b) if, prior to the date hereof, Buyer has not received all Title Documents required to be delivered to Buyer with respect to a particular property, twenty-one (21) calendar days from Buyer’s receipt of all Title Documents with respect to a particular property.

5.11 Delivery of Audited Financial Statements. Seller will use its reasonable best efforts to deliver to Buyer by March 15, 2005 (i) an audited statement of assets to be acquired and liabilities to be assumed of the Business as of December 31, 2002 and 2003, and the related statements of products shipped and operating expenses of the Business for the fiscal

-52-


years then ended, together with the reports thereon of Deloitte & Touche, LLP, Seller’s independent certified public accountants, which reports shall contain no limitations or qualifications as to scope or otherwise and no exceptions and shall state specifically that such statements fairly present in all material respects the financial condition of the Business in accordance with GAAP, (including the notes thereto, the “Audited Annual Financial Statements”) and (ii) an audited statement of assets to be acquired and liabilities to be assumed of the Business as of the Interim Date and related statement of products shipped and operating expenses of the Business as of the Interim Date (the “Audited Interim Financial Statements” and, collectively, with the Audited Annual Financial Statements, the “Audited Financial Statements”). Seller will reasonably cooperate with Buyer in assisting Buyer with the preparation (at Buyer’s sole expense) of an audited statement of assets to be acquired and liabilities to be assumed of the Business as of December 31, 2004, and the related statement of products shipped and operating expenses of the Business for the fiscal year then ended (including the notes thereto, the “Audited 2004 Financial Statements”). The value of the Spares Inventory will be excluded from the Audited Interim Financial Statements and the Audited 2004 Financial Statements and the unaudited value of Spares Inventory (which shall be the unaudited value thereof as of February 17, 2005 as set forth in Exhibit N) will be set forth on a separate schedule attached to such financial statements. The notes to the Audited Annual Financial Statements will indicate that a value for Spares Inventory is not included in such financial statements.

SECTION 6 ADDITIONAL AGREEMENTS

6.1 Use of Names.

(a) Nothing herein shall be construed as granting Buyer a license in or to any trademarks, service marks or trade names belonging to Seller or its Affiliates (collectively, the “Marks”). Except as set forth in the BCA Intellectual Property License Agreement, Buyer may not use the Marks, or any portion thereof, or any mark confusingly similar thereto, after the Closing Date except as set forth in this Section 6.1. If any Marks remain on Assets transferred to Buyer at Closing, Buyer will have the limited permission to use such Marks for so long as they remain on such Assets; provided, however, Buyer will take commercially reasonable steps to promptly remove such Marks within three (3) months from the Closing Date.

(b) Buyer acknowledges Seller’s (or its Affiliates) rights in and title to the Marks and agrees that it shall not do or cause to be done any act that in any manner infringes or impairs the validity, scope, or title in the Marks. Buyer shall not acquire nor claim any title to the Marks adverse to Seller (or its Affiliates) by virtue of this Agreement, the parties intending that all use of the Marks by Buyer permitted hereunder shall inure to the exclusive benefit of Seller or its Affiliates.

(c) In the event Buyer or any Affiliate of Buyer violates any of its obligations under this Section 6.1, Seller may proceed against it in Law or in equity for such damages or other relief as a court may deem appropriate. Buyer acknowledges that a violation of this Section 6.1 may cause Seller irreparable harm which may not be adequately compensated for by money damages. Buyer therefore agrees that, in the event of any actual or threatened violation of this Section 6.1, Seller shall be entitled, in addition to other remedies that it may have, to seek a temporary restraining order and preliminary and final injunctive relief against Buyer or such

-53-


Affiliate of Buyer to prevent any violations of this Section 6.1, without the necessity of posting a bond.

6.2 Employees; Employee Benefits.

(a) Hiring of Employees. Buyer shall offer employment effective immediately following the Closing Date to such employees of the Business, except for certain employees of the Shared Services Group and World Headquarters function who will be retained by Seller, at the same location where such employee was employed on the Closing Date, as Buyer determines to hire in its sole discretion. With respect to each such Business employee who accepts Buyer’s offer of employment (a “Hired Employee”), effective immediately following the Closing Date and except as may be required pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement or applicable Law or as otherwise provided by this Section 6.2, Buyer shall (i) provide compensation and levels of benefits under any Benefit Plan Buyer establishes for the Hired Employees (“Buyer’s Benefit Plans”) as determined by Buyer and (ii) credit periods of service prior to the Closing for purposes of determining eligibility (and benefit entitlement with respect to vacations and pension benefits pursuant to Sections 6.2(d) and 6.2(f)) under Buyer’s Benefit Plans so long as Seller furnishes Buyer with all information necessary to implement this subsection 6.2(a)(ii) pursuant to the other provisions of this Agreement. Each employee of the Business who is on an approved leave of absence at the time they accept an offer of employment from Buyer shall become a Hired Employee as of the date they return from such leave of absence, so long as such employee returns from such absence within thirty (30) months after the Closing Date.

(b) Health Coverages; Workers’ Compensation. Buyer shall make available to each Hired Employee (and his or her “eligible dependents”, as defined in the Benefit Plans) following the Closing coverage under a new group health plan that provides health benefits (within the meaning of Section 5000(b)(1) of the Code) that (i) does not limit or exclude coverage on the basis of any pre-existing condition of such Hired Employee or dependent (other than any limitation already in effect under Seller’s group health plan), and (ii) provides each Hired Employee full credit, for the plan year during which the Closing occurs, for any deductible already incurred by the Hired Employee under Seller’s group health plan and for any other out-of-pocket expenses that count against any maximum out-of-pocket expense provision of Seller’s or Buyer’s group health plan or medical plan. In addition, Buyer shall be responsible for medical and dental claims incurred by any Hired Employee or his or her eligible dependents after the Closing, and be responsible for workers’ compensation claims (including medical, disability, permanency and expense claims) incurred by any Hired Employee or his or her eligible dependents after the Closing, but only to the extent such injuries or illnesses occurred after the Closing, and shall take all necessary and appropriate action to adopt or designate a workers’ compensation program to cover Hired Employees in full compliance with applicable state law. Seller shall remain liable for all amounts payable by reason of or in connection with any and all medical and dental claims incurred by any Hired Employee or his or her eligible dependents on or prior to the Closing Date, and shall remain liable for workers’ compensation claims (including medical, disability, permanency and expense claims) incurred by any Hired Employee on or prior to the Closing Date. For purposes of the foregoing, a medical/dental claim shall be considered incurred when the medical/dental services are rendered or medical supplies are provided, and not when the claim is made or when the condition arose, and a workers’ compensation claim shall be considered incurred when the condition arose. Notwithstanding the

-54-


foregoing, the welfare and other fringe benefits to be provided to any Hired Employees who, pursuant to applicable Law, are determined to be represented by a collective bargaining representative, shall be established or maintained in accordance with any legal obligations Buyer may have under any collective bargaining agreement. Buyer shall inform Seller thirty (30) days prior to Closing of the identity of its workers’ compensation carrier and the identity of appropriate carrier contacts. Buyer and Seller agree to reasonable cooperation with each other to resolve disputes where shared exposure may be present (e.g., as when a condition arose over a period that includes the Closing Date).

(c) WARN and Corresponding State Laws. Seller shall be responsible for, shall deliver any notices required, and shall indemnify and hold Buyer harmless against and in respect of, any Liability under WARN or any similar state Law (collectively, “WARN Liabilities”) which arose or arise on or prior to the Closing Date, in accordance with Section 9.1. Buyer shall be responsible for, shall deliver any notices required, and shall indemnify and hold Seller harmless against and in respect of, any WARN Liabilities which arise as a result of any action by Buyer after the Closing Date, in accordance with Section 9.2. Within ten (10) days after the Closing Date, Seller shall inform Buyer of the number of employees of the Business at each site who have been laid off within the ninety (90) day period on or prior to the Closing Date.

(d) Accrued Vacation. Effective as of the Closing, Buyer agrees to recognize all accrued vacation pay balances and to assume all Liability therefore (“Accrued Vacation”) of Hired Employees and to recognize such employees’ service with Seller for purposes of vacation pay accrual under Buyer’s policies regarding vacation pay. Buyer agrees to either (i) allow all Hired Employees to utilize Accrued Vacation regardless of any maximums for vacation carryovers under Buyer’s vacation policies or (ii) maintain such maximums, in which case Buyer shall pay in cash the value of Accrued Vacation in excess of such maximum to such Hired Employees. Buyer agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and, at the option of Seller, to defend Seller from any Liability, including attorneys’ fees, arising from or relating to the payment or non-payment of Accrued Vacation, in accordance with Section 9.2.

(e) Sick Leave. Effective as of the Closing, Buyer agrees to recognize all accrued sick leave (including personal time or “PTO” for union-represented employees) and to assume all Liability therefore (“Accrued Sick Leave”) of Hired Employees and to recognize such employees’ service with Seller for purposes of sick leave or personal time accrual under Buyer’s policies regarding sick leave or personal time. Buyer agrees to continue to pay out unused Accrued Sick Leave to Hired Employees who are not represented by a collective bargaining agreement as of the Closing Date in accordance with Seller’s existing sick leave policy as in effect on the Closing Date. In the event Buyer modifies such payout policy following the Closing Date, Buyer agrees to pay to such of those Hired Employees who would otherwise have been entitled to a payout of unused Accrued Sick Leave from Seller as of the Closing Date (i.e., those eligible for retirement) not less than the amount they would have been entitled to as of the Closing Date, reduced by the amount of such leave used or paid out prior to or after the Closing Date. Buyer agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and, at the option of Seller, to defend Seller from any Liability, including attorneys’ fees, arising from or relating to the payment or non payment to Hired Employees of Accrued Sick Leave that is accrued and unused as of the Closing Date, in accordance with Section 9.2.

execute and deliver any such document within a reasonable time following Seller’s request therefor, Seller shall have the right to execute, file and record said document in Buyer’s name, place and stead, and Buyer hereby irrevocably appoints Seller as its attorney-in-fact solely for such purposes, which power is coupled with an interest, with rights of substitution and delegation. Seller shall deliver to Buyer a copy of any document so executed.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Deductible and the Maximum Amount shall not apply to a claim to recover Indemnifiable Damages arising out of any breach of any warranty or the inaccuracy of any representation contained in Sections 4.5, 4.7, 4.9 and 4.10.

(b) The period for making claims under Section 9.2(a)(i) shall terminate eighteen (18) months years after the Closing Date (and no claims shall be made by any Seller Group Member under Section 9.2(a)(i) thereafter), except that the indemnification by Buyer as to the representations and warranties of Buyer set forth in Section 4.5, 4.9 and 4.10 shall survive indefinitely.

9.3 Notice of Claims.

(a) Any Buyer Group Member or Seller Group Member seeking indemnification hereunder (the “Indemnified Party”) shall give promptly to the party obligated to provide indemnification to such Indemnified Party (the “Indemnitor”) a written notice (a “Claim Notice”) describing in reasonable detail the facts giving rise to the claim for indemnification hereunder and shall include in such Claim Notice (if then known) the amount or the method of computation of the amount of such claim, and a reference to the provision of this Agreement or any other agreement, document or instrument executed hereunder or in connection herewith upon which such claim is based; provided, however, that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give the Claim Notice as required by this Section 9.3(a) shall not affect such Indemnified Party’s rights under this Section 9 except if such failure resulted in a claim being made after the time periods provided for in Sections 9.1(b) and 9.2(b), if applicable, or to the extent such failure is actually prejudicial to the rights and obligations of the Indemnitor.

(b) In calculating any Indemnifiable Damages there shall be deducted (i) any insurance benefits and proceeds actually collected (collectively, “Insurance Benefits”) in respect thereof (and no right of subrogation shall accrue hereunder to any insurer) with an offset for any demonstrable premium increase; (ii) any indemnification, contribution or other similar payment actually recovered by the Indemnified Party from any third party with respect thereto; and (iii) any Tax benefit or refund actually received or enjoyed by, the applicable Indemnified Party as a result of such Indemnifiable Damages net of any Tax cost to be borne by the Indemnified Party as a result of such indemnification payment. Any such amounts or benefits received by an Indemnified Party with respect to any indemnity claim after it has received an indemnity payment hereunder shall be promptly paid over to the Indemnitor, but not in excess of the amount paid by the Indemnitor to the Indemnified Party with respect to such claim.

(c) After the giving of any Claim Notice pursuant hereto, the amount of indemnification to which an Indemnified Party shall be entitled under this Section 9 shall be determined: (i) by the written agreement between the Indemnified Party and the Indemnitor; (ii) by a final judgment or decree of any court of competent jurisdiction; or (iii) by any other means to which the Indemnified Party and the Indemnitor shall agree. The judgment or decree of a court shall be deemed final when the time for appeal, if any, shall have expired and no

-78-


appeal shall have been taken or when all appeals taken shall have been finally determined. The Indemnified Party shall have the burden of proof in establishing the amount of Indemnifiable Damages suffered by it. All amounts due to the Indemnified Party as so finally determined shall be paid by wire transfer within five (5) Business Days after such final determination.

9.4 Third Person Claims.

(a) An Indemnified Party must notify the Indemnitor in writing, and in reasonable detail, of a third Person claim for which the Indemnified Party is seeking indemnification hereunder promptly after receipt by such Indemnified Party of written notice of the third Person claim provided, however, that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give such notice as required by this Section 9.4(a) shall not affect such Indemnified Party’s rights under this Section 9, except if such failure resulted in a claim being made after the time periods provided in Sections 9.1(b) or 9.2(b), if applicable, or to the extent such failure is actually prejudicial to the rights and obligations of the Indemnitor. Thereafter, the Indemnified Party shall deliver to the Indemnitor, within five (5) calendar days after the Indemnified Party’s receipt thereof, copies of all notices and documents (including court papers) received by the Indemnified Party relating to the third Person claim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, should a party be physically served with a complaint with regard to a third Person claim, the Indemnified Party must notify the Indemnitor with a copy of the complaint within five (5) calendar days after receipt thereof and shall deliver to the Indemnitor within five (5) calendar days after the receipt of such complaint copies of notices and documents (including court papers) received by the Indemnified Party relating to the third Person claim (or in each case such earlier time as may be necessary to enable the Indemnitor to respond to the court Proceedings on a timely basis); provided, however, that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give such notice promptly as required by this Section 9.4(a) shall not affect such Indemnified Party’s rights under this Section 9, except if such failure resulted in a claim being made after the time periods provided in Sections 9.1(b) or 9.2(b), if applicable, or to the extent such failure is actually prejudicial to the rights and obligations of the Indemnitor.

(b) In the event of the initiation of any legal Proceeding against the Indemnified Party by a third Person, the Indemnitor shall have the sole and absolute right after the receipt of notice, at its option and at its own expense, to be represented by counsel of its choice that Indemnitor selects using the same standard of care and processes that it uses for selecting counsel in any other similar matters and to control, defend against, negotiate, settle or otherwise deal with any Proceeding which relates to any Indemnifiable Damages; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party may participate in any such Proceeding with counsel of its choice and at its expense. If the Indemnitor elects to assume control of the defense of a third Person claim, and diligently pursues such defense, any fees and expenses of legal counsel employed by the Indemnified Party with respect to such third Person claim shall be considered Indemnifiable Damages for which the Indemnified Party may be entitled to indemnification under this Section 9 only if the named parties in such third Person claim include both the Indemnitor and the Indemnified Party and the Indemnified Party has determined in good faith upon written advice of counsel that a conflict of interest exists, in which case the fees and expenses of its counsel, together with appropriate local counsel, shall be paid by the Indemnitor (provided that in such situation, the Indemnified Party shall not be entitled to employ more than one law firm, other than appropriate local counsel, each at Indemnitor’s expense). The parties

-79-


hereto agree to cooperate fully with each other in connection with the defense, negotiation or settlement of any such legal Proceeding. Such cooperation shall include the retention and the provision of records and information which is reasonably relevant to such third Person claim, and making employees available in a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information and explanation of any material provided hereunder. To the extent the Indemnitor elects not to defend such Proceeding, or does not notify the Indemnified Party in writing of its election to assume the defense thereof, and the Indemnified Party defends against or otherwise deals with any such Proceeding, the Indemnified Party may retain counsel, at the expense of the Indemnitor, and control the defense of such Proceeding until and unless Indemnitor subsequently gives notice of its election to defend; provided that the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification for counsel fees and expenses incurred during the initial twenty (20) days after notice of such Proceeding is given to the Indemnitor only to the extent that the Indemnified Party in good faith believed that incurrence of such fees and expenses was necessary. Neither the Indemnitor nor the Indemnified Party may settle any such Proceeding, which settlement obligates the other party to pay money, to perform obligations or to admit liability without the written consent of the other party, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided that the consent of the Indemnified Party shall not be required if (i) there is no finding or admission of any violation of any Requirements of Law or any violation of the rights of any Person; (ii) the sole relief provided is monetary damages that are paid in full by the Indemnitor; and (iii) the Indemnified Party shall have no liability with respect to any compromise or settlement effected without its consent. After any final judgment or award shall have been rendered by a court, arbitration board or administrative agency of competent jurisdiction and the time in which to appeal therefrom has expired, or a settlement shall have been consummated, or the Indemnified Party and the Indemnitor shall arrive at a mutually binding agreement with respect to each separate matter alleged to be indemnifiable by the Indemnitor hereunder, the Indemnified Party shall forward to the Indemnitor notice of any sums due and owing by it with respect to such matter and the Indemnitor shall pay all of the sums so owing to the Indemnified Party by wire transfer within five (5) Business Days after the date of such notice.

(c) The provisions of Section 1.5(c) shall, with respect to the matters described therein, control to the exclusion of the provisions of Section 9.4(b) (except to the extent a third Person, including a Governmental Authority, makes the Indemnified Party a party to a Proceeding to collect Taxes from the Indemnified Party for which Taxes the Indemnified Party is entitled to be indemnified under this Section 9, and to that extent the provisions of Section 9.4(b) shall apply to the exclusion of Section 1.5(c) hereof).

9.5 Environmental Indemnification.

(a) After the Closing Date, and subject to the provisions set forth in Sections 9.3, 9.4 and 9.6 through 9.9, Seller agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Buyer from and against any and all Indemnifiable Damages relating to the operation of the Business incurred by Buyer in connection with, or arising from:

(i) Any breach of any representation or warranty of Seller set forth in Section 3.15 (subject to the limitations set forth in Section 9.1(b));

-80-


(ii) Any act, omission or condition occurring or existing on or prior to the Closing Date, including the presence of any Hazardous Substance, which has resulted or in the future results in Liability under any Environmental Law with respect to the Facilities and any other properties or facilities currently or formerly owned, operated or used by Seller or the Business, to the extent that Buyer does not have any indemnity obligation therefore pursuant to Sections 6.13 or 9.5(b);

(iii) Any Liability of Seller pursuant to Section 6.13; or

(iv) All Liabilities of Seller and the Business arising under Environmental Law with respect to the offsite disposal of waste generated from the Business on or prior to the Closing Date.

(b) After the Closing Date, and subject to the provisions set forth in Sections 9.3, 9.4 and 9.6 through 9.9, Buyer agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Seller from and against any and all Indemnifiable Damages relating to the operation of the Business incurred by such Seller in connection with or arising from:

(i) Any act, omission or condition including the presence of any Hazardous Substance arising from post-closing operation of the Business which has resulted or may result in Liability under Environmental Law with respect to the Facilities to the extent caused or contributed to (within the meaning described in Section 6.13(b)(ii)) by Buyer (in accordance with the Proportional Allocation, if applicable), its representative or consultants and to the extent that Seller does not have any indemnity obligation therefore pursuant to Section 6.13 or 9.5(a);

(ii) Any Liability of Buyer pursuant to Section 6.13;

(iii) Any Liability under applicable Law resulting from Buyer’s breach of the Restrictive Covenant (KDHE), the Declaration of Restrictive Covenant and Easement and the Site Access and Environmental Support Services Agreement; or

(iv) All Liabilities of Buyer and the Business arising under Environmental Law with respect to the offsite disposal of waste generated from the Business after the Closing Date except to the extent Seller is responsible for such disposal costs in excess of CDL Disposal Costs under Section 6.13.

(c) Seller shall have the right to enter onto the Facilities at reasonable times to implement any environmental investigation, monitoring, remediation, abatement, excavation or other response or removal action relating to any matter arising under or pursuant to Environmental Law for which Seller has accepted an indemnification or other obligation under this Agreement. The foregoing actions shall be taken only on reasonable notice to Buyer, in a manner which does not interfere with the normal operations of the Business, and subject to Buyer’s reasonable approval. Buyer shall use best efforts to accommodate Seller’s implementation of such foregoing actions. Seller shall regularly inform Buyer of its plans and actions on such matters and provide copies of investigative and remedial reports and related correspondence. Buyer retains the right to perform required investigative and remedial action,

-81-


and to obtain indemnity reimbursement therefor under this Agreement, for matters which Seller declines to undertake in violation of its indemnity obligation under this Section 9.5.

(d) Seller’s indemnification obligation to any Buyer Group Member under this Agreement shall be limited to the cost of the least restrictive standard (including engineering or institutional controls or any lesser clean-up standards resulting from any site-specific risk assessment acceptable under Environmental Law in effect as of the date the activity or response action is implemented based on the use (as of the Closing Date) of the relevant Facility or property), provided that any such standard is accepted and continues to be accepted by the cognizant Governmental Authority as fulfilling all requirements of Environmental Law.

(e) Seller’s indemnification obligation to any Buyer Group Member under Section 9.5 shall, with respect to the Tulsa and McAlester Facilities, continue with respect to known pre-Closing environmental Liabilities and Identified Environmental Liabilities (i) requiring remedial action, until the remedial action is complete in accordance with Section 9.5(i)(ii); and (ii) not requiring remedial action, shall survive indefinitely. In addition, for pre-Closing unknown environmental Liabilities Seller’s indemnification obligation to any Buyer Group Member under this Section 9.5 shall, with respect to the Tulsa and McAlester Facilities be limited to matters of which Buyer provides Seller written notice within seven and one-half (7 1/2) years following the Closing Date, except in no event shall Seller have an indemnification obligation under Sections 6.13 or 9.5(a) to the extent the Indemnifiable Damages result from or would not have arisen but for any intrusive investigation or disclosure by Buyer, its representatives, agents or consultants for purposes of indemnification under this Agreement, provided however the following activities are not considered to be an intrusive investigation or disclosure for purposes of this Section 9.5: (i) the Phase I and Phase II Study conducted in accordance with Section 6.13(a); and (ii) a search for environmental Liabilities permitted under Section 6.13(c)(ii)(B) shall not be deemed an intrusive investigation or disclosure for purposes of this Section 9.5. Any dispute between Buyer and Seller regarding the necessity for further investigation or requirements of disclosure to a Governmental Authority may be submitted to an arbitrator pursuant to Section 9.5(k).

(f) Except with respect to claims by third Persons, the parties acknowledge and agree that Sections 6.13 and 9.5(a) and (b) set forth the sole and exclusive remedies of the parties with respect to Indemnifiable Damages arising out of or relating to Environmental Laws to the extent relating to the Facilities.

(g) In the event of the discovery of the presence of a previously unknown Hazardous Substance at a Facility, at levels that would require remedial action under applicable Environmental Laws, for which Buyer believes that Seller has an indemnity obligation, Buyer shall provide written notice to Seller of such discovery within thirty (30) calendar days after the date of such discovery. The failure of any Indemnified Party to give the Claim Notice as required by this Section 9.5 shall not affect such Indemnified Party’s rights under this Section 9.5 except to the extent such failure is actually prejudicial to the rights and obligations of the Indemnitor’s. Nothing in the foregoing sentence shall be used to extend the relevant limitation period for an indemnification obligation set forth in this Agreement. Buyer and Seller shall meet and confer as to whether the discovered Hazardous Substance constitutes a Liability for which Seller is required to indemnify Buyer pursuant to Section 9.5(a). If Buyer and Seller are unable

-82-


to agree, either Buyer or Seller may submit the review of the presence of the Hazardous Substance and whether it constitutes such a Liability to an arbitrator pursuant to Section 9.5(k).

(h) If the Liabilities for which Seller has an indemnification obligation pursuant to Section 9.5(a) involve the implementation of a remedial action at the Facilities, Buyer shall have the right to review, and provide Seller with written comments in advance of, and object to (such objection to not be unreasonably made or delayed) (i) Seller’s selection of consultants and contractors designated to perform the remedial action and (ii) the development of any plan or Scope of Work for, type of, and clean-up standard for, the remedial action to be implemented. Seller shall review and reasonably consider Buyer’s comments. Seller shall provide all plans, reports and submissions to any Governmental Authority regarding any such remedial action in draft form to Buyer at least ten (10) Business Days prior to transmission of such items to such Governmental Authority and Seller shall review and reasonably consider any of Buyer’s comments on such plans, reports and submissions. In the event that any deadlines set by any Governmental Authority do not allow Seller to provide Buyer with such drafts at least ten (10) Business Days in advance of the transmittal date, Seller shall provide such drafts to Buyer as soon as reasonably possible prior to the transmittal date.

(i) If the Liabilities for which Buyer has an indemnification obligation pursuant to Section 9.5(b) involve the implementation of a remedial action at the Facilities, Seller shall have the right to review, and provide Buyer with written comments in advance of, and object to (such objection to not be unreasonably made or delayed) (i) Buyer’s selection of consultants and contractors designated to perform the remedial action and (ii) the development of any plan or Scope of Work for, type of, and clean-up standard for, the remedial action to be implemented. Buyer shall review and reasonably consider Seller’s comments. Buyer shall provide all plans, reports and submissions to any Governmental Authority regarding any such remedial action in draft form to Seller at least ten (10) Business Days prior to transmission of such items to such Governmental Authority and Buyer shall review and reasonably consider any of Seller’s comments on such plans, reports and submissions. In the event that any deadlines set by any Governmental Authority do not allow Buyer to provide Seller with such drafts at least ten (10) Business Days in advance of the transmittal date, Buyer shall provide such drafts to Seller as soon as reasonably possible prior to the transmittal date.

(j) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement:

(i) To the extent that Seller may have an indemnification obligation under Section 9.5(a), Seller shall (A) comply with Buyer’s reasonable security requirements and (B) take all reasonable measures to minimize or avoid interference with Buyer’s operation of its business, including providing reasonable notice at least seventy-two (72) hours prior to entry (except with respect to exigent circumstances, in which case such notice shall be provided as soon as reasonably possible prior to entry). Buyer shall not unreasonably delay or deny Seller’s request for entry.

(ii) To the extent that Seller may have an obligation to conduct a remedial action pursuant to an indemnification obligation under Section 9.5(a), Seller’s obligations with respect to such remedial action undertaken in connection with such indemnification obligation shall terminate upon (A) receipt from a state or federal Governmental

-83-


Authority or a local Governmental Authority with lead agency status of a form of approval of the termination or discontinuation of such remedial action or (B) in the event that approval of a Governmental Authority is not required, upon receipt of a determination by Seller’s consultant or contractor that the terms of an applicable Scope of Work or workplan have, subject to Section 9.5 herein, been satisfied pursuant to applicable Environmental Law; provided however, in the case of (B) above, Buyer shall be permitted to review and reasonably approve such determination. In the event that Buyer and Seller do not agree, either party may submit such matter to an environmental arbitrator in accordance with Section 9.5(k).

(k) Arbitration.

(i) If a disagreement arises concerning any matter under Section 6.13 or this Section 9.5, either Buyer or Seller may timely notify the other party in writing of the nature of the dispute. If Buyer and Seller are unable to reach agreement on any issue within forty-five (45) days of the notice of dispute, or if the parties sooner agree that they are at an impasse, the dispute shall be finally resolved by arbitration in accordance with the CPR Rules for Non-Administered Arbitration in effect on the date of this Agreement, by a sole independent and impartial arbitrator selected in accordance with Rule 6 (all references rules in this clause 9.5(1) are to the CPR Rules). The arbitrator shall be a Person with experience in environmental matters and otherwise qualified to act as an arbitrator.

(ii) Within twenty (20) days after the expiration of the forty-five (45) day period for informal dispute resolution set out above, or within twenty (20) days after the parties agree that they are at an impasse, either party may trigger arbitration by the submission of a notice of arbitration under Rule 3 of the CPR Rules. Buyer and Seller agree that they shall use best efforts, and request that the arbitrator use best efforts to conclude the arbitration within sixty (60) days of appointment of the arbitrator, unless the parties agree to a longer period for the arbitration of a particular dispute. Unless the parties otherwise agree, the place of arbitration shall be Delaware.

(iii) The determination of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the Buyer and Seller for purposes of Section 6.13 and this Section 9.5. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. Any costs incurred in any arbitration proceedings shall be divided equally between the parties, except that each party shall bear its own attorney fees and costs of witnesses.

9.6 Limitations.

(a) Any indemnity payment hereunder shall be treated for Tax purposes as an adjustment of the Final Purchase Price to the extent such characterization is proper or permissible under relevant Tax Law, including court decisions, statutes, regulations and administrative promulgations.

(b) Except as provided in Sections 5.6 and 11.7(e), the ability of a party to seek indemnification under this Section 9 shall not be affected or limited in any way because of any Knowledge of, investigation by or waiver of any condition by such party.

-84-


(c) Except for remedies that cannot be waived as a matter of Law and injunctive and provisional relief, claims under Section 3.8 (for which Buyer’s sole remedy, if any Asset represented to be present at a Facility is not so present at Closing, shall be in Seller’s discretion, Seller providing the specified item or a comparable replacement item, except in the event Buyer reasonably determines that it is a commercial necessity to replace such item before Seller provides the specified item or a comparable replacement item, in which case Seller shall reimburse Buyer for the amount Buyer reasonably expended on the replacement item) and claims for Indemnifiable Damages or contribution arising under any Environmental Law, if the Closing occurs, this Section 9 (and the provisions of Sections 5.2, 6.1, 6.2 and 6.13 with respect to the matters covered therein) shall be the exclusive remedy for breaches of this Agreement (including any covenant, obligation, representation or warranty contained in this Agreement or in any certificate delivered pursuant to this Agreement) or otherwise in respect of the sale of the Assets contemplated hereby. With respect to claims for which this Section 9 is the exclusive remedy, Buyer and Seller hereby waive and release on their own behalf and on behalf of each other applicable Indemnified Party, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law, any and all rights, claims and causes of action it or they may have against Seller or Buyer, as the case may be, arising under or based upon common Law or any federal, foreign, state or local Law.

(d) No party hereto shall have any Liability for any incidental, special, exemplary, multiple, punitive or consequential damages (including loss of profit or revenues) or any equitable equivalent thereof or substitute therefor suffered or incurred by any Buyer Group Member or Seller Group Member, as the case may be, except for any such damages awarded to a third party against an Indemnified Party for which an Indemnitor would otherwise have responsibility for pursuant to this Section 9.

9.7 Mitigation. Each of the parties agrees to take all reasonable steps to mitigate their respective Indemnifiable Damages upon and after becoming aware of any event or condition which could reasonably be expected to give rise to any Indemnifiable Damages that are indemnifiable hereunder.

9.9 No Offset. The obligations hereunder of Seller, on the one hand, and Buyer, on the other hand, are independent of the obligations of the other hereunder and shall not be subject to any right of offset, counterclaim or deduction.

-85-

11.4 Successors and Assigns. The rights of a party under this Agreement shall not be assignable by such party without the written consent of the other party hereto; provided, subject to the condition that Buyer shall bear all transfer Taxes incurred as a result of any such assignment, Buyer shall be entitled to assign its rights under this Agreement to acquire certain Assets located in Oklahoma to one additional entity, without the consent of Seller, to the extent that such assignment is reasonably necessary to segregate Assets to perform Classified Work; and provided further, that Buyer shall remain responsible for all of its obligations hereunder notwithstanding any assignment. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their successors and permitted assigns. Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, is intended or shall be construed to confer upon any Person, other than the parties and successors and assigns permitted by this Section 11.4, and the Indemnified Parties under Section 9, any right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.

11.5 Records and Other Assistance after Closing.

(a) Access. For a period of seven (7) years after the Closing Date, Seller and its representatives shall have reasonable access to all of the books and records of the Business (including any books and records relating to Taxes and Tax Returns of the Business), other than any books and records created after the Closing Date which are subject to the attorney-client privilege, to the extent that such access may reasonably be required by Seller in connection with matters relating to or affected by the operations of the Business on or prior to the Closing Date, including Excluded Liabilities and/or Excluded Assets, the preparation of Seller’s financial reports or Tax Returns, any Tax audits, the defense or prosecution of litigation (including arbitration or mediation), and any other reasonable need of Seller to consult such books and records. Such access shall be afforded by Buyer upon receipt of reasonable advance notice and during normal business hours in a manner so as to not unreasonably interfere with the conduct of the Business. As to any books or records created on or prior to the Closing Date that may be left at the Facilities, the right to invoke or waive any legal privileges pertaining to such books or records, including the attorney-client privilege, remains exclusively with Seller. Seller shall be exclusively responsible for any costs or expenses incurred by it pursuant to this Section 11.5(a). If any such books or records, or any other documents related to the Business on or prior to the Closing Date which Seller has the right to have access to pursuant to this Section 11.5(a) are produced by Buyer to an actual or potentially adverse party (e.g., in litigation or in connection with a government investigation), Buyer shall use reasonable efforts to promptly make all such books, records and/or documents produced available for inspection and copying by Seller concurrently with the production of such books, records and/or documents. In addition, if Buyer

-88-


shall desire to dispose of any of such books or records prior to the expiration of such seven (7) year period, Buyer shall, prior to such disposition, give Seller a reasonable opportunity, at Seller’s expense, to segregate and remove such books and records as Seller may select. Buyer shall provide Seller with reasonable assistance, and charge Seller at Buyer’s actual unburdened expense, by providing employees to act as witnesses and preparing documents, reports and other information requested by Seller in support of the activities described in this Section 11.5(a).

(b) Access by Buyer to Certain Information.

11.6 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Schedules and the Exhibits referred to herein and the documents delivered pursuant hereto and the Confidentiality Agreement contain the entire understanding of the parties hereto with regard to the subject matter contained herein or therein, and supersede all other prior agreements, understandings, term sheets, heads of terms or letters of intent between or among any of the parties hereto (including, without limitation, the Memorandum).

11.7 Interpretation.

(a) Titles and headings to sections and subsections herein are inserted for convenience of reference only and are not intended to be a part of or to affect the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.

(b) The Schedules referred to herein shall be construed with and as an integral part of this Agreement to the same extent as if they were set forth verbatim herein. Disclosure of any fact or item in any Schedule hereto referenced by a particular Section in this Agreement shall be deemed to have been disclosed with respect to other Sections in this Agreement only to the extent the relevance to such other Sections is readily apparent from the actual text of such disclosure. Neither the specification of any dollar amount in any representation or warranty contained in this Agreement nor the inclusion of any specific item in any Schedule hereto is intended to vary the definition of “Material Adverse Effect” or to imply that such amount, or higher or lower amounts, or the item so included or other items, are or are not material, and no party shall use the fact of the setting forth of any such amount or the inclusion of any such item in any dispute or controversy between the parties as to whether any obligation, item or matter not described herein or included in any Schedule is or is not material for purposes of this Agreement. Unless this Agreement specifically provides otherwise, neither the specification of any item or matter in any representation or warranty contained in this Agreement nor the inclusion of any specific item in any Schedule hereto is intended to imply that such item or matter, or other items or matters, are or are not in the ordinary course of business, and no party shall use the fact of the setting forth or the inclusion of any such item or matter in any dispute or controversy between the parties as to whether any obligation, item or matter not described herein or included in any Schedule is or is not in the ordinary course of business for purposes of this Agreement.

(c) Seller may, from time to time prior to or at the Closing, by notice in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, supplement, amend or create any Schedule, in order to (i) add information that relates to events or circumstances arising after the date hereof (any such Schedule, an “Additive Schedule”) or (ii) correct previously supplied information or add information omitted from a Schedule that should have been included in the Schedules provided Buyer on the date hereof (any such Schedule, “Corrective Schedule” and, together with any “Additive Schedules, the “Amending Schedules”). No such Amending Schedule shall be evidence, in and of itself that the representations and warranties in the corresponding Section are no longer true and correct in all material respects. It is specifically agreed that such Amending Schedules may be amended to add immaterial, as well as material, items thereto.

(d) With respect to any Corrective Schedule that Seller delivers, if the information on such Corrective Schedule constitutes a breach of a representation or warranty but would not entitle Buyer not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 above, and the

-91-


Closing occurs, Buyer shall be entitled to indemnification, if any, for such breach in accordance with Section 9.1.

(e) If the information set forth on any Corrective Schedule, or on any number of Corrective Schedules in the aggregate, would entitle Buyer not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 above and if Seller so notifies Buyer in writing, it shall be conclusively established that Buyer is entitled not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 above. If, however, the Closing occurs, any such Corrective Schedule will be effective to cure and correct for all other purposes any breach(es) of any representation, warranty or covenant which would have existed if Seller had not delivered such Corrective Schedule, and all references to any Schedule hereto which is supplemented or amended as provided in this Section 11.7(e) shall for all purposes after the Closing be deemed to be a reference to such Schedule as so supplemented or amended. In such case, Buyer shall be deemed to have waived any and all rights, remedies or other recourse against Seller to which Buyer might otherwise be entitled in respect of such breach(es), including any rights or remedies under Section 9. If the information set forth on any Corrective Schedule would entitle Buyer not to consummate the Closing pursuant to Section 7.1 above and if Seller does not notify Buyer of such in writing, then any and all rights, remedies or other recourse against Seller to which Buyer is entitled with respect to the information on the original Schedule, including any rights or remedies under Section 7.1 or Section 9, shall be deemed not to have been waived and shall not be affected or impaired. If Seller delivers a notice to Buyer pursuant to this Section 11.7(e) more than one hundred ten (110) days after the date of this Agreement, the date provided for in Section 10.1(a)(iii) shall be extended to the date which is ten (10) days following the date of such delivery.

(f) With respect to any Additive Schedule, if the Closing occurs, any such Additive Schedule will be effective to cure and correct for all other purposes any breach of any representation, warranty or covenant which would have existed if Seller had not made such supplement, amendment or addition, and all references to any Schedule hereto which is supplemented or amended as provided in this Section 11.7(f) shall for all purposes after the Closing be deemed to be a reference to such Schedule as so supplemented or amended. In such case, Buyer shall be deemed to have waived any and all rights, remedies or other recourse against Seller to which Buyer might otherwise be entitled in respect of such breach, including any rights or remedies under Section 9.

(g) For the purposes of this Agreement, (i) words in the singular shall be held to include the plural and vice versa and words of one gender shall be held to include the other gender as the context requires, (ii) the terms “hereof, “herein” and “herewith” and words of similar import shall be construed to refer to this Agreement in its entirety and to all of the Schedules and not to any particular provision, unless otherwise stated, and (iii) the term “including” shall mean “including without limitation.”

(h) This Agreement shall be construed without regard to any presumption or rule requiring construction or interpretation against the party drafting or causing any instrument to be drafted.

(i) Pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, Seller is required to deliver documentation to the Title Company in connection with the Title Policies and Survey. In no

-92-


event shall such documentation alter in any manner the allocation of Liabilities or Indemnifiable Damages as allocated among the Parties in this Agreement.

(j) All Schedules of Seller with respect to the representations and warranties in Section 3 (“Seller’s Rep Schedules”) shall be deemed delivered by Seller and effective February 18, 2005 and not on the date of execution of this Agreement. Solely for purposes of Section 11.7(c) with respect to any supplement or amendment to any of Seller’s Rep Schedules, date or time references in such section with respect to any Seller’s Rep Schedule to “after the date hereof” or “on the date hereof” shall be deemed to be references to February 18, 2005. In addition, the reference in Section 1.2(a)(iii) to “after the date hereof” shall be to dates after February 18, 2005.

11.8 Amendments and Waivers. This Agreement may be amended, superseded, canceled, renewed or extended, and the terms hereof may be waived, only by a written instrument signed by each of the parties or, in the case of a waiver, by the party waiving compliance. Any such waiver, including any waiver of this Section 11.8, shall be validly and sufficiently authorized for the purposes of this Agreement if, as to any party, it is authorized in writing by an authorized representative of such party. The failure of any party hereto to enforce at any time any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed to be a waiver of such provision, nor in any way to affect the validity of this Agreement or any part hereof or the right of any party thereafter to enforce each and every such provision. No waiver of any breach of this Agreement shall be held to constitute a waiver of any other or subsequent breach.

11.9 Bulk Sales Laws. The parties hereby waive compliance with the bulk sales Laws of any state in which the Assets are located or in which operations related to the Business are conducted.

11.10 Expenses. Except as set forth elsewhere in this Agreement, each party hereto will pay all costs and expenses incident to its negotiation and preparation of this Agreement and to its performance and compliance with all agreements and conditions contained herein on its part to be performed or complied with, including the fees, expenses and disbursements of its counsel, accountants, advisors and consultants.

11.11 Partial Invalidity. Wherever possible, each provision hereof shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable Law. In case any one or more of the provisions contained herein shall, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such provision or provisions shall be ineffective to the extent, but only to the extent, of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability without invalidating the remainder of such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision or provisions or any other provisions hereof, unless such a construction would be unreasonable.

11.12 Execution in Counterparts; Facsimile. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts and via facsimile, each of which shall be considered an original instrument, but all of which shall be considered one and the same agreement, and shall become binding when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of the parties hereto and delivered to Seller and Buyer.

-93-


11.13 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal Laws (as opposed to the conflicts of Law provisions) of the State of Delaware.

Without limiting Section 11.21, each party hereby irrevocably consents and submits to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of and venue in the federal and state courts located in Wilmington, Delaware.

11.15 Attorneys’ Fees. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, if any Proceeding for the enforcement of this Agreement is brought, or because of an alleged dispute, breach, default or misrepresentation in connection with any of the provisions hereof, the successful or prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs incurred in that Proceeding, in addition to any other relief to which it may be entitled.

11.16 Time of Essence. Time is of the essence for each and every provision of this Agreement.

11.17 Disclaimer of Warranties. Seller make no representations or warranties with respect to any projections, forecasts or forward-looking information provided to Buyer. There is no assurance that any projected or forecasted results will be achieved. EXCEPT AS TO THOSE MATTERS EXPRESSLY COVERED BY THE REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES IN THIS AGREEMENT AND THE CERTIFICATE DELIVERED BY SELLER PURSUANT TO SECTION 2.3(x), SELLER IS SELLING THE ASSETS AND THE BUSINESS OF SELLER AND ASSIGNING THE ASSUMED LIABILITIES ON AN “AS IS, WHERE IS” BASIS AND SELLER DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS AND GUARANTIES WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. SELLER MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY AS TO MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Buyer is thoroughly familiar with the physical condition and state of repair of each of the Facilities and agrees to take title to the Facilities “AS IS” “WHERE IS” in its current condition and state of repair, subject to the representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement and the certificate delivered by Seller pursuant to Section 2.3(x) and subject to reasonable use, wear and tear and natural deterioration between the date hereof and the Closing Date, without any reduction in the Final Purchase Price or claim of any kind except as provided for in this Agreement. Buyer acknowledges that neither Seller nor any of their representatives nor any other Person has made any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of any memoranda, charts, summaries, presentation or Schedules heretofore made available by Seller or its representatives to Buyer or any Affiliate of Buyer or any other information which is not included in this Agreement, the Schedules or the Exhibits hereto, and neither Seller nor any of its representatives nor any other Person will have or be subject to any Liability to Buyer, any Affiliate of Buyer or any other Person resulting from the distribution of any such information to, or use of any such information by, Buyer, any Affiliate of Buyer or any of their agents, consultants, accountants, counsel or other representatives.

11.20 No Rescission. Neither Buyer nor Seller shall be entitled to rescind the purchase of the Business and the Assets by Buyer by virtue of any failure of any party’s representations and warranties herein to have been true or any failure by any party to perform its obligations hereunder.

(c) The party asserting a Dispute shall deliver to the other party a written notice setting forth the basis for the issue in detail, and identifying the section of this Agreement (the “Dispute Notice”).

Buyer and Seller agree to negotiate in good faith with one another for an additional period ending sixty (60) Business Days after receipt of the Dispute Notice.

(e) In the event that any Asset or Liability Dispute remains unsettled after the procedures set forth in Section 11.21(d) or in the event any other Dispute remains unsettled after the procedures set forth in Section 11.21(c), a party hereto may commence Proceedings hereunder in any court specified in Section 11.14.
