representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement or in any writing
delivered by the Company or Management Stockholder in connection with this
Agreement shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the

herein, the provisions of this Agreement may be amended and the Company may take
any action herein prohibited, or omit to perform any act herein required to be
performed by it, only if the Company has obtained the written consent of
Management Stockholder. No other course of dealing between the Company and

herein, all covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement by or on behalf
of either of the parties hereto shall bind and inure to the benefit of the

action as the Company may reasonably request to effect, consummate, confirm or
evidence the transfer to the Company of the Contributed Stock and any other
