          (c) by either Seller or Buyer, if there shall be any Law, Order or similar legal authority that makes consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby illegal or otherwise prohibited; provided, however, that in the case of an Order enjoining or otherwise prohibiting such consummation the party seeking to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this subsection (c) shall have used all reasonable efforts to prevent and remove any such Order;

10.   Indemnification
     10.1 By Seller and Shareholders
          From and for a period of one (1) year after the Closing Date (unless a different time period or survival period is specifically stated for the enforceability of any particular promise, covenant, representation or warranty herein in which case said time period shall apply to this indemnity obligation for any breach of said promise, covenant, representation or warranty), Seller and the Shareholders (the "Indemnifying Parties") shall indemnify and hold Buyer and its Affiliates (the "Indemnified Parties") harmless from and against, and shall reimburse the Indemnified Parties for, any and all Losses arising out of or in connection with:

No such investigation by Buyer prior to or after the date of this Agreement, and no knowledge acquired by Buyer prior to execution of the Agreement or after execution but prior to Closing, shall affect or impair any Indemnified Party's right to be indemnified as provided herein.
     10.2 By Buyer and Parent

Asset Purchase Agreement

-46-


 
          (b) any breach or violation of or noncompliance with any covenant, condition or other agreement of Buyer contained in this Agreement;
     The representations and warranties of Buyer under this Agreement shall not be deemed waived or otherwise affected by any investigation made or any knowledge acquired by Seller with respect thereto. No such investigation by Seller prior to or after the date of this Agreement, and no knowledge acquired by Seller prior to execution of the Agreement or after execution but prior to Closing, shall affect or impair any Indemnified Party's right to be indemnified as provided herein.
     10.3 Limitations
     The obligations of the Indemnifying Parties under the preceding Section 10.1 (namely the indemnity obligations of Seller and Shareholders) shall be subject to the limitations set forth in this Section 10.3.
          (a) No claim by Buyer or its Affiliates for indemnification under this Section 10 (a "Claim") may be brought unless written notice of such Claim is made by Buyer or its affiliates within one (1) year period described in Section 10.1, with the exception of a claim regarding the representations and warranties set forth above in Section 4.10 ("Taxes"), which may be made until the expiration of the relevant statute of limitations (in which event each provision of this Agreement on which such Claim is based shall, with respect to such Claim, survive the applicable survival period until such Claim is finally resolved and all obligations with respect thereto are fully satisfied).
          (b) The Indemnified Parties shall not be entitled to be indemnified in respect of Losses as to which Claims for indemnification are made under this Section 10, and the Indemnifying Parties shall not be obligated to provide indemnification hereunder, unless and until the aggregate amount of all Losses for which Claims by Indemnified Parties are made hereunder exceeds $10,000 (the "Threshold"), in which event the Indemnifying Parties shall be obligated to indemnify the Indemnified Parties for the total dollar amount in excess of such Threshold of all such Losses.
          (c) The maximum liability of the Indemnifying Parties in respect of Claims for indemnification under this Agreement shall be limited to $1,000,000 (the "Cap"); provided, however, that (i) any Claims shall be satisfied first from the Holdback Amount as provided in Section 10.5, and only to the extent the Holdback Amount is not sufficient may such Claims be pursued directly against the Indemnifying Parties; (ii) the Cap shall not apply to any Claim for Losses asserted under Section 10.1(c); and (iii) the maximum indemnity liability of any individual Shareholder shall be limited to that Shareholder's allocable pro rata percentage of the Cap based upon their respective interests as reflected on Schedule 10.4., and no Shareholder shall be liable for another Shareholder's liability hereunder. The indemnification remedies under this Section 10 shall be the Indemnified Parties' sole recourse for damages under this Agreement.

     10.4 Holdback Claims Procedure for Seller and Shareholder Indemnity
          (a) At the Closing, the Holdback Amount shall be retained by Buyer as a partial mechanism to satisfy potential Claims for indemnification by Indemnified Parties under Section 10.1. Any liability of the Indemnifying Parties for indemnification under Section 10.1 shall be satisfied first from the Holdback Amount, to the extent thereof. If such liability exceeds the Holdback Amount, the Indemnifying Parties shall promptly pay the balance of such liability to the Indemnified Party entitled thereto, subject to the Cap, (if applicable).
          (b) In the event the Indemnifying Parties dispute a Claim ("Disputed Claim"), such dispute shall be resolved by the parties in accordance with either (i) a mutual agreement among Buyer and the Indemnifying Parties, which shall be memorialized in writing, or (ii) a final decision of a court of competent jurisdiction. If any Disputed Claim has not been resolved prior to the date otherwise established as the Holdback Termination Date (as defined below), and if any Holdback Amount then remains available, the Holdback Termination Date shall be extended until such time as any such Disputed Claim has been resolved.
          (c) Buyer shall hold the Holdback Amount in accordance with this Agreement and shall release the Holdback Amount only as follows:
               (i) The Holdback Amount shall be credited to Buyer's account in respect of indemnification Claims made by Indemnified Parties under this Section 10 when, and to the extent, authorized under subsection (b) above.
               (ii) On the Holdback Termination Date, any Holdback Amount then remaining and not (A) previously credited to Buyer in respect of Claims for indemnification under Section 10.1 or (B) reserved in respect of Disputed Claims shall be released to the Seller or, if Seller has been liquidated, to Seller's former Shareholders pro rata in accordance with their respective interests therein as set forth in Schedule 10.4. Except as otherwise set forth in subsection (b) above, for purposes of this Agreement, the "Holdback Termination Date" shall mean the first business day following six months after the Closing Date.
          (d) The Holdback Amount shall be maintained by Buyer in a separate interest-bearing money market account, segregated from Buyer's other assets. All interest earned on such funds shall be added to the Holdback Amount as earned and shall be for the account of the party ultimately entitled to the principal of the Holdback Amount, as determined at the Holdback Termination Date. For federal and state income tax purposes, any such interest earned shall be income of the party ultimately entitled to the principal of the Holdback Amount.

     10.5 Specific Performance
     The parties to this Agreement acknowledge that it may be impossible to measure in money the Losses that a party would incur if the other party failed to perform any covenant or agreement herein. Each party hereto shall be entitled to obtain an injunction to require specific performance of, and prevent any violation of the terms of, this Agreement, in addition to any other remedy available hereunder. In any such Proceeding specifically to enforce any provision of this Agreement, the party against whom such remedy is sought hereby waives any claim or defense therein that an adequate remedy at law or in damages exists.
11.   Seller and Shareholder Non-compete
     As part of the consideration for Buyer's obligations hereunder, including but not limited to the payment of the Purchase Price set forth above in Section 3, Seller and Shareholders agree that for a period of two (2) years following the Closing Date, they will not, singly or collectively, engage in, be employed by, perform services for, participate in the ownership, management, control or operation of, or otherwise be connected with, either directly or indirectly, any Competing Business. For purposes of this Section, Seller or Shareholders will not be considered to be connected with any Competing Business solely on account of: (a) their ownership of less than five percent (5%) of the outstanding capital stock or other equity interests in any Competing Business; or (b) their engagement by, performance of services for, participation in or other connection with any business that is not a Competing Business but that is carried on by an entity that carries on a Competing Business as a separate division or other independent organization. For purposes of this Section, "Competing Business" means any enterprise, whether commercial or non-profit, that is in competition with any material aspect of the Buyer's business as said business existed during the Shareholders' employment with Buyer.
12.   Miscellaneous
     12.1 Amendment and Waiver
     This Agreement may not be amended or modified except by an instrument in writing signed by Buyer, Seller and the Shareholders. No waiver of any violation of any provision of this Agreement, extension of time for performance hereunder, or other modification of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing and signed by the waiving party. No delay or failure of any party to exercise its rights and pursue available remedies hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof.
     12.2 Severability
     If any court determines that any part or provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby and shall be given full force and effect and remain binding upon the parties. Furthermore the court shall have the power to replace the invalid or unenforceable part or provision with a provision that
Asset Purchase Agreement

-49-


 
accomplishes, to the extent possible, the original business purpose of such part or provision in a valid and enforceable manner. Such replacement shall apply only with respect to the particular jurisdiction in which the adjudication is made. Without in any way limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is understood and agreed that this Section 11.2 shall apply to the provisions of Section 8.5 and that the provisions of Section 8.5, as they relate to each jurisdiction within their geographical scope, constitute separate and distinct covenants.
