No later than three (3) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Company shall deliver to Buyer a revised Exhibit A, updated to reflect all issued and outstanding Shares held by the Sellers, which shall constitute all of the issued and outstanding Shares as of the Closing Date, the name in which such Shares are held by such Sellers, and such other information with respect thereto that is currently set forth on such Exhibit A, as well as to reflect any adjustments to the Adjusted Purchase Price required pursuant to Section 2.3 hereto for Third Party Expenses; such revised Exhibit A shall be certified as to its accuracy as of the Closing Date by the Company's Chief Executive Officer or Chief Financial Officer.
     2.2 The Purchase Price; Escrow Amounts.  Upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, at Closing Buyer shall pay the Adjusted Purchase Price to the Sellers or deposit such portions of the Adjusted Purchase Price in escrow as follows; provided, that, it is understood and agreed that the formulas contained in this Agreement and the amounts to be paid to each Seller as described in this Section 2.2 and as set forth in Exhibit A have been reviewed and consented to by each Seller and that Buyer shall have no liability for any errors and omissions in such formulas or Exhibit A to any Seller, or for any payment of the Adjusted Purchase Price to any Seller after delivery of the Closing Cash Payment to the Civil Law Notary:

Such cash amount in the aggregate shall be referred to herein as the "Closing Cash Payment".
          (b) Buyer will deposit the Escrow Amount with the Escrow Agent pursuant to the Escrow Agreement in immediately available U.S. dollar funds by wire transfer.

If the Parties are able to agree, the agreed and amended Third Party Expenses Statement shall constitute the Third Party Expenses Statement for purposes of the definition of Adjusted Purchase Price hereunder; and, if not, the Third Party Expenses Statement initially delivered by Buyer will constitute the Third Party Expenses Statement for such purposes and Buyer shall have recourse for any Excess Third Party Expenses pursuant to Article IX hereof.

sale, transfer, conveyance, assignment and confirmation, provide such materials and information and take such other actions as Buyer may reasonably deem necessary or desirable in order to more effectively transfer, convey and assign to Buyer, and to confirm Buyer's title to, all of the Shares and to assist Buyer in exercising all rights with respect thereto, and otherwise to cause the Company and each of the Sellers to fulfill their respective obligations under this Agreement.

As of the Effective Time, Buyer shall provide the Company Employees who are employed by Buyer or its Subsidiaries (including the Company and its Subsidiaries) after the Effective Time (the "Continuing Employees") with substantially the same benefits in the aggregate as those provided to similarly situated employees of Buyer. For purposes of determining eligibility to participate, vesting and entitlement to benefits where length of service is relevant (including for purposes of vacation accrual) under any Buyer employee benefit plan (other than a defined benefit plan or sabbatical arrangement) and to the extent permitted by applicable law, Buyer shall provide that the Continuing Employees shall receive service credit under each Buyer employee benefit plan (other than a defined benefit plan or sabbatical arrangement) for their period of service with the Company and its Subsidiaries and predecessors prior to the Closing, except where doing so would cause a duplication of benefits. Nothing in this Agreement, including this Section 7.9, express or implied, is intended to confer upon any current or former Company Employee any rights or remedies by reason of this Agreement.

     7.12 Release of Claims. Each Seller, effective upon the Closing, on behalf of such Seller and each of such Seller's successors and assigns (collectively, the "Releasor Parties") and in such Seller's capacity as a present or former shareholder or optionholder of the Company, effective as of the Closing, does hereby unconditionally, irrevocably and absolutely release and forever discharge the Company and each of its Subsidiaries and their respective predecessors, successors, joint ventures, assigns, past and present members, shareholders, directors, managers, officers, employees, Affiliates and Representatives, in their capacities as such (collectively the "Released Parties"), from any and all loss, liability, obligations, claims, costs, demands, actions, causes of action, suits, debts, accounts, covenants, Contracts, controversies, damages and judgments of every kind, nature and character (including, without limitation, claims for damages, costs, expenses and attorneys', brokers' and accountants' fees and expenses), in each case arising from Releasor Party's status as a past or

-51-


 
present shareholder or optionholder of the Company (including, without limitation, any employment, member or fiduciary duty claims against the Company or its Subsidiaries) in connection with any transaction, affair or occurrence, whether in law, equity or otherwise, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, that Releasor Party now has, has ever had or at any time could have asserted against any of the Released Parties arising from such matters (collectively, the "Released Claims"). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, this Release shall not operate to discharge or release the Released Parties from, and the Released Claims shall in no event include (a) any rights or claims any of the Releasor Parties may have under this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements, or (b) any rights or claims that a Releasor Party may have against any Released Party in any capacity other than as specified in the first sentence of this paragraph (including under any Contract such party may have with any Released Party in such other capacity, any claims in such party's capacity as an employee of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries and any rights to indemnification as a director or officer of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries). Each such Releasor Party hereby irrevocably agrees, effective as of the Closing Date, to refrain from, directly or indirectly, asserting any claim or demand or commencing (or allowing to be commenced on such Releasor Party's behalf) any suit, action or proceeding of any kind, in any agency, court or before any tribunal, against any Released Party based upon any Released Claim, it being the intent by such Releasor Party that with the execution by Releasor Party of this Agreement, the Released Parties will be absolutely, unconditionally and forever discharged of and from any and all obligations related in any way to the Released Claims.
     7.13 Confidentiality Obligations.
          (a) The terms and conditions of this Agreement and any other Ancillary Agreements shall be considered confidential information subject to the confidentiality obligations of Buyer and Seller, as set forth in the Mutual Nondisclosure Agreement dated December 1, 2006 between Buyer and the Company (the "Confidentiality Agreement").
          (b) In addition, each of the Sellers recognize that by reason of such Seller's ownership of Company Capital Stock prior to the Closing and information provided by Buyer to the Company and the Sellers in connection with the Share Purchase, the Sellers have acquired and will acquire Confidential Information (as defined below), the use or disclosure of which could cause Buyer or its Affiliates substantial loss and damages that could not be readily calculated and for which no remedy at law would be adequate. Accordingly, each Seller covenants and agrees and shall cause its Affiliates to covenant and agree with Buyer that such Seller and its Affiliates will not at any time, except in performance of its obligations to Buyer, directly or indirectly, use, disclose or publish, or permit other Persons (including Affiliates and Subsidiaries of such Seller) to disclose or publish, any Confidential Information, or use any such information in a manner detrimental to the interests of Buyer or any of its Affiliates, unless (i) such information becomes generally known to the public through no fault of such Seller or its Affiliates, (ii) the disclosing party is advised in writing by counsel that disclosure is required by applicable Law or the order of any Governmental Entity of competent jurisdiction under color of applicable Law, or (iii) the disclosing party reasonably believes that such disclosure is required in connection with the defense of a lawsuit against the disclosing party; provided, that prior to disclosing any information pursuant to clause (i),

-52-


 
(ii) or (iii) above, such Person shall give prior written notice thereof to Buyer and provide Buyer with the opportunity to contest such disclosure and shall cooperate with Buyer's efforts to prevent such disclosure.
          (c) The term "Confidential Information" includes information that has not been disclosed to the public or to the trade with respect to Buyer's or the Company's present or future business, operations, services, products, research, inventions, discoveries, drawings, designs, plans, processes, models, technical information, facilities, methods, trade secrets, copyrights, software, source code, systems, patents, procedures, manuals, specifications, any other intellectual property, confidential reports, price lists, pricing formulas, customer lists, financial information (including the revenues, costs, or profits associated with any of Buyer's or the Company's products or services), business plans, lease structure, projections, prospects, opportunities or strategies, acquisitions or mergers, advertising or promotions, personnel matters, legal matters, any other confidential and proprietary information, and any other information not generally known outside Buyer or the Company that may be of value to Buyer or the Company but excludes any information already properly in the public domain.

          (a) For a period of three (3) years from the Closing Date, none of CBB, Mr. Paul Grootaers or Mr. Gerhard Watzinger (the "Identified Sellers") nor any of their respective Subsidiaries or Affiliates shall anywhere in the Territories, directly or indirectly, for such Identified Seller or Subsidiary or Affiliate or on behalf of or in conjunction with any other Person, engage, as an officer, director, manager, member, trustee, stockholder, beneficiary, owner, partner, joint venture, investor, employee, independent contractor, agent, consultant, advisor, representative or otherwise, in any business, or in developing, selling, manufacturing, distributing or marketing any product or service, that competes directly or indirectly, or is reasonably likely to compete directly or indirectly, with the business of the Company as of the date of this Agreement; provided, however that each Identified Seller or its Subsidiaries may purchase or otherwise acquire up to five percent (5%) (in the aggregate) of any class of the securities of any Person (but may not otherwise participate in the activities of such Person) engaged in the Company's business if such securities are listed on any national or regional securities exchange or have been registered under Section 12(g) of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
          (b) For a period of two (2) years from the Closing Date, none of the Identified Sellers nor Summit Partners III S.a.r.l. nor any of their respective Subsidiaries or Affiliates (excluding any portfolio companies of Summit Partners III S.a.r.l. or any of its affiliated management entities or investment funds) shall, directly or indirectly, for such Identified Seller or Subsidiary or Affiliate or on behalf of or in conjunction with any other Person, employ or solicit, or receive or accept the performance of services by, any Continuing Employee; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not apply (i) to responses to or follow-up hiring in respect of general solicitations or advertisements for job positions not specifically directed to Continuing Employees or (ii) to any Continuing Employee who is terminated by Buyer or any of its Subsidiaries after the Closing Date or terminates

-53-


 
his or her employment with Buyer without any solicitation directly or indirectly from the Identified Seller or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates.
          (c) The parties agree that the foregoing covenants in this Section 7.14 impose a reasonable restraint on the Identified Sellers in light of the activities and operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries on the date of the execution of this Agreement and the current plans of Buyer and its Affiliates; but it is also the intent of the parties that such covenants be construed and enforced in accordance with the changing activities and business of Buyer and its Affiliates (including the Company after the Closing), throughout the term of this covenant.
          (d) If any provision contained in this Section 7.14 shall for any reason be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provisions of this Section 7.14, but this Section 7.14 shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein. It is the intention of the parties that if any of the restrictions or covenants contained herein is held to cover a geographic area or to be for a length of time which is not permitted by applicable Law, or in any way construed to be too broad or to any extent invalid, such provision shall not be construed to be null, void and of no effect, but to the extent such provision would be valid or enforceable under applicable Law, a court of competent jurisdiction shall construe and interpret or reform this Section to provide for a covenant having the maximum enforceable geographic area, time period and other provisions (not greater than those contained herein) as shall be valid and enforceable under such applicable Law. The Identified Sellers and their Affiliates acknowledge that Buyer and its Affiliates would be irreparably harmed by any breach of this Section 7.14 and that there would be no adequate remedy at law or in damages to compensate Buyer and its Affiliates for any such breach. The Identified Sellers and their Affiliates agree that Buyer and its Affiliates shall be entitled to injunctive relief requiring specific performance by the Identified Sellers or any of their Affiliates of this Section 7.14, and the Identified Sellers consent and shall cause their respective Affiliates to consent to the entry thereof.
          (e) All of the covenants in this Section 7.14 shall be construed as an agreement independent of any other provision in this Agreement, and the existence of any claim or cause of action of the Identified Sellers or any of their respective Affiliates against Buyer or its Affiliates, whether predicated on this Agreement or otherwise, shall not constitute a defense to the enforcement by Buyer or its Affiliates of such covenants. The parties expressly acknowledge that the terms and conditions of this Section 7.14 are independent of the terms and conditions of any other agreements including, but not limited to, any employment agreements entered into in connection with this Agreement. It is specifically agreed that the periods set forth in this Section 7.14 during which the agreements and covenants made in this Section 7.14 shall be effective, shall be computed by excluding from such computation any time during which the Person bound by such agreement or covenant is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to have been in violation of any provision of this Section 7.14. The covenants contained in this Section 7.14 shall not be affected by any breach of any other provision hereof by any party hereto.

-54-


 
          (f) Each of the parties hereto hereby agrees that the covenants set forth in this Section 7.14 are a material and substantial part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and are supported by adequate consideration.
     7.15 Shareholders Agreement. Each of the parties to the Shareholders Agreement agrees that the Shareholders Agreement shall be terminated without any further action as of the Effective Time.

          (b) The representations and warranties of Buyer set forth in Article V of this Agreement, or in any certificate or other instrument delivered pursuant to this Agreement, shall survive indefinitely.

The Indemnifying Parties shall not have any right of contribution, indemnification or right of advancement from the Company or Buyer with respect to any Loss claimed by an Indemnified Party. Nothing in this Agreement shall limit the right of Buyer or any Indemnified Party to pursue remedies under any Ancillary Agreement against the parties thereto.
     9.3 Indemnification Limitations.
          (a) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, (i) no indemnification shall be available in respect of Section 9.2(i) unless (A) other than with respect to the Specified Representations and the matters set forth on Schedule 9.1(a)(iii), the aggregate amount (without duplication) of Losses of the Indemnified Parties with respect thereto exceeds $1,000,000 (the "Basket Amount"), in which case the Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to be indemnified only for those Losses in excess of the Basket Amount, and (B) other than with respect to the matters set forth on Schedule 9.1(a)(iii), the Losses relating to any individual claim, or series of related claims that are based primarily on a similar set of operative facts, is greater than $50,000; (ii) the aggregate maximum liability for indemnification pursuant to Section 9.2 including the matters specifically set forth on Schedule 9.1(a)(iii) shall be the Escrow Amount and recourse therefor shall be solely against the Escrow Fund, provided that, the Buyer may recover for any breaches of the representations and warranties of the Company and/or the Sellers set forth in (x) Section 3.9 (Tax Matters) and (y) Article IV ((x) and (y), the "Specified Representations") in accordance with Section 9.3(a)(iii), (iii) upon and after the Escrow Release Date any indemnification pursuant to Section 9.2(i) for (A) any breaches of the representations and warranties of the Sellers set forth in Article IV or pursuant to Section 9.2(iv) shall be solely against the breaching Seller, severally and not jointly, and no other Seller shall have any liability whatsoever with respect thereto and any such indemnification from any Seller shall be limited in the aggregate to that portion of the Purchase Price actually received by such Seller and (B) any breaches of the representations and warranties set forth in Section 3.9 (Tax Matters), except for the matters specifically set forth on Schedule 9.1(a)(iii), shall be against the Sellers, severally and not jointly, and any such indemnification from any Seller pursuant to this Section 9.3(a)(iii)(B) shall be limited in the aggregate to an amount equal to such Seller's Pro Rata Portion of the Remaining Escrow Amount, (iv) the amount of any and all Losses under this Article IX shall be determined net of (a) any Tax benefits actually recognized in the year of payment of such Loss or any of the two years thereafter by any party seeking indemnification hereunder by a reduction in cash Taxes payable in such year by such party arising from the deductibility of any such Losses (and if any such Tax benefit is realized after the Indemnified Party collected indemnification amounts hereunder, the amount of such Tax benefits shall be refunded to the Escrow Fund or, after the Escrow Fund has terminated, the Sellers' Representative on behalf of the Sellers), and (b) any amounts actually recovered under or pursuant to any insurance policy, title insurance policy, indemnity, reimbursement arrangement or contract pursuant to which or under which such Indemnified Party or such Indemnified Party's Affiliates is a party or has rights (collectively, "Alternative Arrangements"), in each case net of collection costs, and (v) in no event shall any Indemnified Party be entitled to recover or make a claim for any amounts in respect of, and

-57-


 
in no event shall "Losses" be deemed to include, (a) punitive, special or exemplary damages (other than any such Losses incurred by an Indemnified Party as a result of any final and non-appealable judgment granted to a third party) and, in particular, no "multiple of profits" or "multiple of cash flow" or similar valuation methodology shall be used in calculating the amount of any Losses, or (b) any loss, liability, damage or expense to the extent specifically accrued or reserved for as a liability on the Company Balance Sheet in accordance with IFRS applied on a basis consistent with past practices.
          (b) Nothing in this Article IX or otherwise set forth in this Agreement shall limit or preclude any claim against any Party for fraud or for any willful and knowing breach of any of clauses (a) through (v) of Section 6.1 of this Agreement.
          (c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the parties hereto agree and acknowledge that any Indemnified Party may bring a claim for indemnification for any Loss under this Article IX notwithstanding the fact that such Indemnified Party had knowledge of the breach, event or circumstance giving rise to such Loss prior to Closing or waived any condition to the Closing related thereto.
          (d) In the event that an Indemnified Party suffers, sustains or becomes subject to any Loss which is subject to indemnification under Section 9.2(v), as a result of, in connection with or relating to an event or series of events, which, in the reasonable opinion of the Sellers' Representative, would entitle the Company to make an indemnification claim under the 2005 Share Purchase Agreement, then the Sellers' Representative shall be entitled to instruct the Company to take (at the expense of the Sellers), all such actions as the Seller may reasonably require to make and/or enforce such claim against the relevant parties to the 2005 Share Purchase Agreement. In the event that the Company recovers any amount pursuant to such claim, then such amount (net of any unpaid expenses of the Company and any Tax consequences to the Company or any of its Affiliates as a result of such recovery or as a result of such recovery being for the account of or paid to the Sellers or returned to the Escrow Account) shall be for the account of the Sellers, provided that, in the event such recovery occurs prior to the Escrow Release Date, than the amount of such recovery shall be returned to the Escrow Account. The Parties agree to cooperate to ensure that any recovery and subsequent payments made pursuant to this Section 9.3(d) shall be made in the most tax efficient manner possible.
     9.4 Escrow; Claim Procedures
          (a) From and after the Closing, the Sellers agree that, subject to the other provisions of this Article IX and the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement, the Escrow Amount shall be available to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Indemnified Parties from and against any and all Losses in respect of which such Indemnified Parties may be indemnified, defended or held harmless under this Article IX. Sellers' interests in the Escrow Amount shall be non-transferable.
          (b) In the event that any Indemnified Party has a right to indemnification on or prior to the Escrow Release Date pursuant to Section 9.2, Buyer may send a written notice to the

-58-


 
Sellers' Representative on or prior to the Escrow Release Date stating that an Indemnified Party has a right to receive payment and specifying in reasonable detail the basis for its claim, as well as the Losses relating thereto (which, if not determinable at such time, may be a reasonable good faith estimate thereof) (a "Payment Notice"). The failure to so notify the Sellers' Representative shall not relieve the Sellers of any liability, except to the extent the Indemnifying Parties are economically prejudiced or otherwise prejudiced, in any material respect, thereby or the extent such Payment Notice is not delivered prior to the Escrow Release Date. Unless the Sellers' Representative delivers a written notice to Buyer within twenty (20) Business Days after receipt of the Payment Notice specifying in reasonable detail any objections to the Payment Notice, the Sellers' Representative and Buyer shall deliver to the Escrow Agent a written notice executed by both Parties instructing the Escrow Agent to deliver to Buyer the amount designated in such Payment Notice subject to the terms of this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement. If the Sellers' Representative notifies Buyer of such an objection to the Payment Notice, (i) the Sellers' Representative and Buyer shall deliver to the Escrow Agent a written notice executed by both Parties instructing the Escrow Agent to deliver to Buyer, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement, the amount designated in such Payment Notice that is not subject to dispute, if any, and (ii) the parties shall in good faith attempt for ten (10) days to resolve their differences with respect to the amount designated in such Payment Notice that is subject to dispute. If a dispute remains as to any amount designated in such Payment Notice following the expiration of such ten (10) day period, each party shall be entitled to seek any available remedy against the other party in accordance with Section 9.2 and Section 9.3.
          (c) Subject to and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement, upon the Escrow Release Date, any remaining portion of the Escrow Fund (such amount, the "Remaining Escrow Amount") shall promptly be delivered to the Sellers; provided, however, that the Escrow Fund shall not terminate with respect to, and to the extent that, any such amounts (the aggregate of such amounts, the "Holdback Amount") are reasonably necessary to satisfy any unsatisfied claims specified in any Payment Notice delivered to the Sellers' Representative on or prior to the Escrow Release Date. As soon as any such claims have been resolved (any such resolved claim, a "Resolved Claim"), the Sellers' Representative and Buyer shall deliver to the Escrow Agent a written notice executed by both Parties instructing the Escrow Agent to deliver to each Seller such Seller's applicable Escrow Distribution (after deducting the amount required to be distributed pursuant to the resolution of such claim to the applicable Indemnified Parties) in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement. In addition, should the Holdback Amount, or any portion thereof, at any time cease to constitute a Holdback Amount pursuant to the definition thereof, the Sellers' Representative and Buyer shall deliver to the Escrow Agent a written notice executed by both Parties instructing the Escrow Agent to pay each Seller such Seller's applicable Escrow Distribution in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement.
          (d) In the event that any claim, action or proceeding is made, brought or initiated by any third party against an Indemnified Party giving rise to indemnity pursuant to this Article IX, Buyer shall, as promptly as practicable, so notify the Sellers' Representative in writing, specifying in reasonable detail the basis of the Indemnified Party's belief that such claim, action or proceeding

-59-


 
gives rise to indemnity pursuant to Article IX (the "Third Party Claim Notice"). The failure to so notify the Sellers' Representative shall not relieve the Sellers of any liability, except to the extent the Indemnifying Parties are economically prejudiced or otherwise prejudiced, in any material respect, thereby or (other than with respect to any such Third Party Claim contemplated by Section 9.3(a)(iii)) to the extent such Third Party Claim Notice is not delivered on or prior to the Escrow Release Date. The Sellers' Representative shall have the right in its sole discretion, but not the obligation, to assume the defense of any such claim, action or proceeding and to defend, in good faith, any such claim, action or proceeding, and Buyer shall have the right (at its expense), but not the obligation, to participate in (but not control), the defense of any such third-party claim, action or proceeding. If the Sellers' Representative fails to assume the defense of such third party claim in accordance with this Section 9.4(d) within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of such claim pursuant hereto, Buyer shall (upon delivering notice to such effect to the Sellers' Representative) have the right to undertake the defense of such third party claim, and the Sellers' Representative shall be liable for any resulting settlement of such third party claim and for any final judgment with respect thereto (subject to any right of appeal), if any, but only to the full extent otherwise provided in this Agreement. In the event the Sellers' Representative assumes the defense of the claim pursuant to this Section 9.4(d), the Sellers' Representative shall keep the Indemnified Party reasonably informed of the progress of any such defense or settlement, and in the event Buyer assumes the defense of the claim pursuant to this Section 9.4(d), Buyer shall keep the Sellers' Representative reasonably informed of the progress of any such defense or settlement. Buyer shall not settle such third-party claim without the prior written consent of the Sellers' Representative, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided, however, that if the Sellers' Representative affirmatively abandons the defense of any such third party claim, the Sellers' Representative's consent shall not be required for any such settlement. The Sellers' Representative may not settle or compromise such third-party claim without the prior written consent of Buyer, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided, that notwithstanding the foregoing, Buyer shall be entitled not to consent, in its sole discretion, to any proposed settlement or compromise that (i) does not include a provision whereby the plaintiff or claimant in the matter releases Buyer and its Affiliates from all Liability with respect thereto (which shall be in form and substance satisfactory to Buyer, or (ii) would obligate Buyer or any of its Affiliates to pay or be liable for an amount related thereto in excess of the amount then available for indemnification hereunder. Buyer shall make available to the Sellers' Representative all records and other materials reasonably required for use in contesting any third-party claim, subject to any privileged or confidential information. Buyer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Sellers' Representative in the defense of all such claims. Any expenditures by the Sellers' Representative in defense of a third party claim subject to this Section 9.4(d) shall constitute Sellers' Representative Expenses.
     9.5 Exclusive Remedy. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that, from and after the Closing, and other than actions for specific performance or similar injunctive relief or actions against a Party committing for fraud or any willful and knowing breach of any of clauses (a) through (v) of Section 6.1 of this Agreement, its and the other Indemnified Parties' sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all claims relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in this Article IX

-60-


 
and, other than with respect to indemnification pursuant to Section 9.2(i) with respect to the Specified Representations and indemnification pursuant to Section 9.2(iv), shall be limited to the Escrow Amount and recourse therefor shall be solely against the Escrow Fund.
     9.6 Sellers' Representative.
          (a) The Sellers, by executing this Agreement, irrevocably appoint Summit Partners III, S.a.r.l. as the "Sellers' Representative," their agent and attorney-in-fact to act on behalf of each of the Sellers, in connection with and to facilitate the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and the Escrow Agreement, which shall include the power and authority:
               (i) for the purposes of Article IX, to give and receive notices and communications, to authorize delivery to any Indemnified Party of cash from the Escrow Amount in satisfaction of claims by an Indemnified Party, to object to such deliveries, to agree to, negotiate, enter into settlements and compromises of, and demand arbitration and comply with orders of courts and awards of arbitrators with respect to such claims, and to take all actions necessary or appropriate in the judgment of the Sellers' Representative for the accomplishment of the foregoing. The Sellers' Representative shall inform the Sellers within three (3) Business Days of any action taken by it hereunder;
               (ii) to execute and deliver the Escrow Agreement (with such modifications or changes therein as to which the Sellers' Representative, in its sole discretion, shall have consented) and to agree to such amendments or modifications thereto as the Sellers' Representative, in its sole discretion, determines to be desirable;
               (iii) to execute and deliver such waivers and consents in connection with this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby as the Sellers' Representative, in its sole discretion, may deem necessary or desirable;
               (iv) to enforce and protect the rights and interests of the Sellers and to enforce and protect the rights and interests of all Sellers arising out of or under or in any manner relating to this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement, and any other document contemplated hereby, and to take any and all actions which the Sellers' Representative believes are necessary or appropriate under either of the Escrow Agreement and/or this Agreement for and on behalf of the Sellers;
               (v) to refrain from enforcing any right of the Sellers or any of them and/or the Sellers' Representative arising out of or under or in any manner relating to this Agreement, the Escrow Agreement or any document contemplated hereby; provided, however, that no such failure to act on the part of the Sellers' Representative, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or in the Escrow Agreement, shall be deemed a waiver of any such right or interest by the Sellers' Representative or by the Sellers unless such waiver is in writing signed by the waiving party or by the Sellers' Representative;

-61-


 
               (vi) to make, execute, acknowledge and deliver all such other agreements, guarantees, orders, receipts, endorsements, notices, requests, instructions, certificates, stock powers, letters and other writings, and, in general, to do any and all things and to take any and all action that the Sellers' Representative, in its sole and absolute discretion, may consider necessary or proper or convenient in connection with or to carry out the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, the Escrow Agreement and all other documents contemplated hereby; and
               (vii) to direct payment from the Closing Cash Payment to pay any fees or expenses incurred or agreed to be incurred by a Seller in connection with the negotiation and effectuation of this Agreement, such amounts to be borne by each Seller in proportion to its pro rata share of the Aggregate Participation Consideration, provided, that, each Seller must make the Seller's Representative aware of such fees or expenses by the Closing Date, and, provided, further, that any fees and expenses that the Seller's Representative is not made aware of by the Closing Date shall be for the account of the Seller that incurred them.
          (b) The Sellers' Representative may resign upon written notice to Buyer and the holders of a majority interest of the Escrow Amount shall appoint a successor. The successor shall be entitled to all the rights, powers, immunities and privileges as was his, her or its predecessor, without the need of any further act or writing. No bond shall be required of the Sellers' Representative, and the Sellers' Representative shall not receive compensation for his, her or its services. Notices or communications to or from the Sellers' Representative shall constitute notice to or from each of the Sellers.
          (c) The Sellers' Representative shall not be liable for any act done or omitted hereunder as Sellers' Representative while acting in good faith and in the exercise of reasonable judgment. The Sellers' Representative shall only have the duties expressly stated in this Agreement and shall have no other duty, express or implied. The Sellers' Representative may engage attorneys, accountants and other professionals and experts. The Sellers' Representative may in good faith rely conclusively upon information, reports, statements and opinions prepared or presented by such professionals, and any action taken by the Sellers' Representative based on such reliance shall be deemed conclusively to have been taken in good faith and in the exercise of reasonable judgment. The Sellers' Representative will serve without compensation but will, except as otherwise provided herein, be reimbursed by each Seller, severally and not jointly in accordance with such Seller's Pro Rata Portion, for any reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred or anticipated to be incurred in good faith on the part of the Sellers' Representative and arising out of or in connection with the acceptance or administration of the Sellers' Representative's duties hereunder, including the reasonable fees and expenses of any legal counsel retained by the Sellers' Representative ("Sellers' Representative Expenses"). Following the resolution of all pending claims related to the Sellers' Representative's duties hereunder, the Sellers' Representative shall have the right to recover Sellers' Representative Expenses from the any remaining funds in the Escrow Fund to be distributed to the Sellers prior to any distribution to the Sellers, and prior to any such distribution, shall deliver to the Escrow Agent a certificate setting forth the Sellers' Representative Expenses actually incurred. The Sellers shall indemnify, severally but not jointly, up to an amount proportional to such Seller's Pro Rata Portion, the Sellers' Representative and hold the Sellers' Representative harmless against any

-62-


 
loss, liability or expense incurred on the part of the Sellers' Representative (so long as the Sellers' Representative was acting in good faith in connection therewith) and arising out of or in connection with the acceptance or administration of the Sellers' Representative's duties hereunder, including the reasonable fees and expenses of any legal counsel retained by the Sellers' Representative; provided, however, that the Sellers' Representative shall first seek recovery for any such loss, liability or expense from the Escrow Fund, and only thereafter in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
          (d) A decision, act, consent or instruction of the Sellers' Representative with respect to the matters for which the Sellers' Representative is authorized pursuant to this Section 9.6 shall constitute a decision of all of the Sellers and shall be final, legally binding and conclusive. Buyer shall have the right to rely upon all actions taken or omitted to be taken by the Sellers' Representative pursuant to this Agreement and the Escrow Agreement. With respect to matters regarding the Escrow Amount, the Indemnified Parties may rely upon any such decision, act, consent or instruction of the Sellers' Representative as being the decision, act, consent or instruction of each Seller. The Indemnified Parties are hereby relieved from any liability to any Person for any acts done by them in accordance with such decision, act, consent or instruction of the Sellers' Representative.
          (e) Buyer, on behalf of all Indemnified Parties, hereby agrees that any notice, right, or obligation required to be delivered to, performed by, or asserted by the Sellers regarding the Escrow Amount shall be delivered to, performed by or asserted by the Sellers' Representative.
          (f) The grant of authority provided for herein to the Sellers' Representatives (i) is coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable and survive the death, incompetency, bankruptcy or liquidation of any Seller and (ii) shall survive the consummation of the Share Purchase, and any action taken by the Sellers' Representative pursuant to the authority granted in this Agreement or under the Escrow Agreement shall be effective and absolutely binding on each Seller notwithstanding any contrary action of or direction from such holder.
          (g) The Sellers' Representative may at any time resign by giving written notice of its resignation to Buyer and the Sellers specifying the date on which its resignation shall become effective; provided, that such date shall be at least thirty (30) days after the receipt of such notice, unless Buyer and the Sellers agree to accept shorter notice. Prior to resignation, the Sellers' Representative shall appoint a replacement Sellers' Representative. Such appointment shall be evidenced by a written instrument from such replacement Sellers' Representative accepting such appointment, a copy of which shall be delivered to Buyer and notice of which such appointment shall be given to the Sellers. Notwithstanding the date of effectiveness specified in such written notice of resignation, the resignation shall become effective only upon the acceptance of appointment by the successor Sellers' Representative.

-63-


 
          (a) by the mutual written consent of Buyer, the Sellers and the Company;
          (b) by either Buyer, on the one hand, or the Sellers (acting as a group), on the other hand, if the Closing shall not have occurred by the date that is sixty (60) days from the date which is the earlier of (i) the filing of the joint notification and application for the clearance of the Share Purchase with the German competition authorities and (ii) October 15, 2007; provided, however, that the right to terminate this Agreement under this subsection shall not be available to any party whose failure to fulfill any obligation under this Agreement shall have been the primary cause of, or resulted in, the failure of the Closing to occur prior to such date;
          (c) by either Buyer or the Sellers (acting as a group) if a Governmental Entity shall have issued an Order or taken any other action (including the failure to have taken an action), in any case having the effect of permanently restraining, enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the Share Purchase, which order, decree, ruling or other action is final and nonappealable;
          (d) by Buyer, if from the date of this Agreement there shall have occurred any Company Material Adverse Effect; and
          (e) by Buyer, if there has been a breach of the representations and warranties contained in Section 4.1 or Section 4.4 that would prevent any Seller from being able to consummate the Share Purchase.
     10.2 Effect of Termination. In the event of termination of this Agreement as permitted by Section 10.1, this Agreement shall become void and of no further force and effect, except for the following provisions, which shall remain in full force and effect: Sections 7.2, 7.13, this Section 10.2, Article XI and Article XII. Nothing in this Section 10.2 shall be deemed to release any Party from any liability for any breach by such party of the terms and provisions of this Agreement prior to any such termination or to impair the right of any party to compel specific performance by any other party of its obligations under this Agreement.
ARTICLE XI

Parent, as primary obligor, hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees to each of the Sellers the performance of any and all obligations of Buyer pursuant to this Agreement (the "Buyer Obligations"), including, but not limited to, the delivery of the Closing Cash Payment (the "Parent Guarantee").
     11.2 Nature of Guarantee. The Sellers shall not be obligated to file any claim relating to Buyer Obligations in the event that Buyer becomes subject to a bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, and the failure of the Sellers to so file shall not affect Parent's obligations hereunder. In the event that any payment to the Sellers in respect of Buyer Obligations is rescinded or must otherwise be returned to the payor for any reason whatsoever, Parent shall remain liable hereunder with respect to Buyer Obligations as if such payment had not been made. This is an unconditional guarantee of payment and not of collectibility. Upon the failure of Buyer to fulfill Buyer

Obligations in accordance with this Agreement, Parent shall, on demand and without presentment, protest, any notice whatsoever, all such notices being hereby waived, perform or pay such Buyer Obligations, and it shall not be necessary for the Sellers, in order to enforce such payment or performance by Parent, first to institute suit or pursue or exhaust any rights or remedies against Buyer, or to resort to any other means of obtaining payment or performance of Buyer Obligations. Time shall be of the essence in this Parent Guarantee with respect to all of Parent's obligations hereunder.
     11.3 Parent Representations and Warranties.

This Agreement has been duly executed and delivered by Parent and this Agreement constitutes legal, valid and binding obligations of Parent enforceable against Parent in accordance with its terms, subject to the effect of applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other similar Laws affecting the rights of creditors and the effect or availability of rules of Law governing specific performance, injunctive relief or other equitable remedies.
     11.4 Unconditional Guaranty. Mr. Paul Gootaers, as primary obligor, hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees to Buyer the performance of any and all obligations of CBB pursuant to this Agreement (the "CBB Obligations"), including but not limited to the indemnification and other obligations contained in Article IX hereto (the "Grootaers Guarantee").
     11.5 Nature of Guarantee. Buyer shall not be obligated to file any claim relating to CBB Obligations in the event that CBB becomes subject to a bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, and the failure of Buyer to so file shall not affect Mr. Grootaers's obligations hereunder. In the event that any payment to Buyer in respect of the CBB Obligations is rescinded or must otherwise be returned to the payor for any reason whatsoever, Mr. Grootaers shall remain liable hereunder with respect to the CBB Obligations as if such payment had not been made. This is an unconditional guarantee of payment and not of collectibility. Upon the failure of CBB to fulfill the CBB Obligations in accordance with this Agreement, Mr. Grootaers shall, on demand and without presentment, protest, any notice whatsoever, all such notices being hereby waived, perform or pay such CBB Obligations, and it shall not be necessary for Buyer, in order to enforce such payment or performance by Mr. Grootaers, first to institute suit or pursue or exhaust any rights or remedies against CBB, or to resort to any other means of obtaining payment or performance of the CBB Obligations. Time shall be of the essence for this Grootaers Guarantee with respect to all of Mr. Grootaers's obligations hereunder.
     11.6 Mr. Paul Grootaers's Representations and Warranties. Mr. Paul Grootaers represents and warrants as of the date hereof and as of the Closing Date that he has full power and authority, including any spousal consent required by applicable Law, and legal capacity to execute

GENERAL
     12.1 Amendment. This Agreement may only be amended by the Parties hereto by execution of an instrument in writing validly executed by (i) Buyer, (ii) Sellers holding a majority of the total Company Ordinary Shares outstanding as of the date hereof, provided that, if any such amendment would adversely and uniquely affect any Seller or holder of Company Options, the consent of such Seller or holder of Company Options shall also be required, and (iii) the Company. Any such amendment of this Agreement effectuated in accordance with this Section 12.1 shall be binding on each Seller and all Sellers shall be deemed to have agreed to it.
     12.2 Waiver. Neither any failure nor any delay by any party in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements will operate as a waiver of such right, power or privilege, and no single or partial exercise of any such right, power or privilege will preclude any other or further exercise of such right, power or privilege or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable Law, (a) no claim or right arising out of this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreements can be discharged by one party, in whole or in part, by a waiver or renunciation of the claim or right unless in writing signed by the other party; (b) no waiver that may be given by a party will be applicable except in the specific instance for which it is given; and (c) no notice to or demand on one party will be deemed to be a waiver of any obligation of that party or of the right of the party giving such notice or demand to take further action without notice or demand as provided in this Agreement or any Ancillary Agreements. Any extension or waiver by any party of any provision hereto shall be valid only if set forth in an instrument in writing signed on behalf of such party.

     12.11 Specific Performance. The Parties agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event any provision of this Agreement was not performed in accordance with the terms thereof and that, prior to the termination of this Agreement pursuant to its terms, the Parties shall be entitled to seek specific performance of the terms hereof, in addition to any other remedy at law or equity.
     12.12 Waiver of Jury Trial.
