ARTICLE VI

INDEMNIFICATION

Section 6.1 Indemnification.

(a) Subject to the limitations set forth in Section 6.3, from and after the date hereof, Sellers shall jointly and severally indemnify, defend and hold harmless Purchaser, their Affiliates and their respective officers, managers, directors, shareholders, members, employees and agents (the “Purchaser Indemnified Persons”) from and against any Losses actually incurred by Purchaser Indemnified Persons arising out of or resulting from any misrepresentation or breach of any of the representations and warranties made by either Seller in this Agreement; provided, in each case, that the relevant Purchaser Indemnified Person has submitted to Parent a Notice of Claim or Third-Party Notice, as applicable, in respect thereof prior to the date of expiration of the applicable survival period specified in Section 6.3(a).

(b) Subject to the limitations set forth in Section 6.3, from and after the date hereof, Purchaser shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Sellers, their Affiliates and their respective officers, managers, directors, advisory board members, shareholders, members, employees and agents (the “Seller Indemnified Persons”) from and against any Losses incurred by the Seller Indemnified Persons arising out of or resulting from any misrepresentation or breach of any of the representations and warranties made by Purchaser in this Agreement; provided, in each case, that the relevant Seller Indemnified Person has submitted to Purchaser a Notice of Claim or Third-Party Notice, as applicable, in respect thereof prior to the date of expiration of the applicable survival period specified in Section 6.3(a).

Section 6.2 Procedures for Indemnification.

(a) If any Purchaser Indemnified Person or Seller Indemnified Person (each an “Indemnified Person”) shall claim indemnification hereunder for any claim (other than a third-party claim) for which indemnification is provided in Section 6.1 above, the Indemnified Person shall promptly, and in any event within fifteen (15) days after it first becomes aware of facts which give rise to the basis for such claim, give written notice (a “Notice of Claim”) to Parent or Purchaser, as applicable, setting forth the basis for such claim and the nature and estimated amount of the claim, all in reasonable detail. The failure of the Indemnified Person to give such Notice of Claim within such period shall not release, waive or otherwise affect the Indemnifying Person’s obligations with respect thereto except to the extent that the Indemnifying Person is materially prejudiced as a result of such failure. If Parent or Purchaser, as applicable, disputes any claim set forth in the Notice of Claim, it may, at any time, deliver to the Indemnified Person that has given the Notice of Claim a written notice indicating its dispute of such Notice of Claim, and the applicable Parties shall attempt in good faith for a period of thirty (30) days after delivery of such notice of dispute to agree upon the rights of the respective Parties with respect to such Notice of Claim. If no such agreement can be reached after good faith negotiation during such thirty (30) day period, the Parties shall have the rights and remedies, if any, available to them under this Agreement.

(b) If an Indemnified Person shall claim indemnification hereunder arising from any claim or demand of a third party for which indemnification is provided in Section 6.1 above, the Indemnified Person shall promptly, and in any event within fifteen (15) days after it first becomes aware of facts which give rise to the basis for such claim or demand, give written notice (a “Third-Party Notice”) to Parent or Purchaser, as applicable (each, an “Indemnifying Person”), setting forth, to the extent known, the basis for such claim and the nature and estimated amount of the claim or demand, all in reasonable detail. The failure of the Indemnified Person to give such Third-Party Notice within such period shall not release, waive or otherwise affect the Indemnifying Person’s obligations with respect thereto except to the extent that the Indemnifying Person is materially prejudiced as a result of such failure. The Indemnifying Person, upon notice to the Indemnified Person at any time after receiving a Third-Party Notice, may defend any claim or demand set forth in a Third-Party Notice, at its own cost and through counsel of its choosing; provided that (i) the Indemnifying Person acknowledges that the claim asserted is subject to indemnification by such Indemnifying Person pursuant to this Article VI (subject to any limitations set forth therein) and (ii) such counsel is reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Person. The Indemnifying Person shall from time to time apprise the Indemnified Person of the status of the claim, liability or expense and any resulting suit, proceeding or enforcement action, and shall furnish the Indemnified Person with such documents and information filed or delivered in connection with such claim, liability or expense as the Indemnified Person may reasonably request. The Indemnified Person shall not admit any liability to any third party in connection with any matter which is the subject of a Third Party Notice and shall cooperate fully in the manner requested by the Indemnifying Person in the defense of such claim, at the Indemnifying Person’s expense. Notwithstanding anything herein stated, the Indemnified Person (i) shall at all times have the right to participate fully in such defense at its own expense directly or through counsel or (ii) shall be entitled to assume the control of such defense if the third-party claim involves a criminal proceeding, action or indictment against an Indemnified Person. Until such time as the Indemnifying Person has delivered a notice of intent to defend a third-party claim to the Indemnified Person, the Indemnified Person may, at the expense of the Indemnifying Person, undertake any defense of such claim, liability or expense that is necessary during such period (with counsel selected by the Indemnified Person and reasonably acceptable to the Indemnifying Person); provided that the Indemnified Person shall not be entitled to indemnification for any fees, costs or other expenses incurred during the first 30 days after it delivers the Third-Party Notice to the Indemnifying Person unless it is obligated to defend a motion for emergency relief or to meet another court imposed deadline occurring during (or within the five (5) Business Days after the end of) such period.

(c) Notwithstanding anything in this Section 6.2 to the contrary, neither the Indemnifying Person nor the Indemnified Person shall, without the written consent of the other party, settle or compromise any claim or demand of a third party or permit a default or consent to entry of any judgment unless (i) the claimant and such party provide to such other party an unqualified release from all Liability in respect of the claim or demand of a third party and (ii) such settlement, compromise, default or judgment (A) does not restrict the business of such other party or any of its Affiliates, (B) does not include any statement as to or any admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of such other party or any of its Affiliates and (C) only involves Liabilities that will be fully paid for by the Indemnifying Person. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a settlement offer solely for money damages is made by the applicable third party claimant, and the Indemnifying Person notifies the Indemnified Person in writing of the

 

9


Indemnifying Person’s willingness to accept the settlement offer and, subject to the applicable limitations of Section 6.3, pay the amount called for by such offer, and the Indemnified Person declines to accept such offer, the Indemnified Person may continue to contest such claim, free of any participation by the Indemnifying Person, and the amount of any ultimate liability with respect to such matter that the Indemnifying Person has an obligation to pay hereunder shall be limited to the lesser of (x) the amount of the settlement offer that the Indemnified Person declined to accept or (y) the aggregate Losses of the Indemnified Person with respect to such matter.

Section 6.3 Limitations on Indemnification.

(a) The representations and warranties entered into or made pursuant to this Agreement shall survive until the twelve (12) month anniversary of the date hereof; provided, however, that (i) Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 4.1, and 4.2 shall survive indefinitely (the representations and warranties identified in this clause (i) being the “Fundamental Representations”). The covenants and agreements requiring performance following the date hereof shall survive and continue in full force and effect until such covenants or agreements are fully performed in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; provided, however, that the covenant and agreement to indemnify against misrepresentations or breaches of certain representations and warranties shall survive only until the expiration of the underlying representation and warranty, except that if a claim for indemnification has been made with respect to a misrepresentation or breach of warranty prior to the expiration of the underlying representation and warranty, such covenant and agreement to indemnify shall survive with respect to such indemnification claim until it has been fully and finally resolved.

(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Sellers’ maximum aggregate liability to Purchaser Indemnified Persons for Losses for which the Purchaser Indemnified Persons are entitled to indemnification under Section 6.1(a) (including Losses arising from misrepresentations or breaches of the Fundamental Representations of Sellers and taking into account clause (i) hereof) shall not exceed the Purchase Price.

(c) No Purchaser Indemnified Person shall be entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 6.1(a)(i) unless and until the aggregate Losses (excluding Losses with respect to any individual claim (or series of related claims) falling below the De-Minimis Threshold) incurred by all Purchaser Indemnified Persons in respect of all claims under Sections 6.1(a)(i) collectively exceed $100,000 (the “Basket”), whereupon the Purchaser Indemnified Persons shall only be entitled to indemnification hereunder (subject to the other provisions of this Article VI) from Sellers for all such Losses incurred by Purchaser Indemnified Persons in excess of the Basket, except that any claim relating to a misrepresentation or breach of the Fundamental Representations of Sellers shall not be subject to such limitation. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, with respect to any individual claim (or series of related claims), no Purchaser Indemnified Persons shall be entitled to indemnification pursuant to Section 6.1(a)(i) unless and until the aggregate Losses incurred by all Purchaser Indemnified Persons in respect of such individual claim (or series of related claims) exceeds $50,000 (the “De-Minimis Threshold”), whereupon (i) the Purchaser Indemnified Persons shall be entitled to indemnification hereunder (subject to the other provisions of this Article VI, including the first sentence of this Section 6.3(c)) from Sellers for the full amount of Losses incurred by Purchaser

 

10


Indemnified Persons with respect to such individual claim (or series of related claims) without reduction for the De-Minimis Threshold and (ii) the full amount of such Losses with respect to such individual claim (or series of related claims) shall be taken into account in determining whether the Basket has been exceeded. For the avoidance of doubt, no claim for indemnification under any provision of Section 6.1(a) other than Section 6.1(a)(i) shall be subject to either the Basket or De-Minimis Threshold.

(d) The amount of any Losses for which indemnification is provided for under this Agreement shall be reduced by (i) any amounts received by the Indemnified Person as a result of any indemnification, contribution or other payment by any third party, and (ii) any insurance proceeds or other amounts received by the Indemnified Person from third parties with respect to such Losses. In the event any of the amounts or proceeds described in the foregoing sentence are received after the Indemnifying Person has indemnified or reimbursed the Indemnified Person for its applicable Losses as required pursuant to this Article VI, then the Indemnified Person shall promptly reimburse the Indemnifying Person by an amount equal to any amounts or proceeds so received.

(e) The Indemnified Person agrees to take commercially reasonable actions to mitigate all Losses and to make timely and diligently pursue any claims for insurance and/or other payments available from third parties with respect to Losses for which it will seek indemnification hereunder.

(f) To the extent permitted by applicable Law and any applicable Contract, the Indemnifying Person shall be subrogated (on a non-recourse basis and without any representation or warranty by the Indemnified Person) to the Indemnified Person’s rights of recovery against any other unaffiliated Person with respect to any Losses to the extent any such Losses are satisfied by such Indemnifying Person. Subject to the foregoing, the Indemnified Person shall execute and deliver such instruments and papers as are reasonably necessary to assign such rights to the Indemnifying Person and reasonably assist the Indemnifying Person in the exercise thereof. Any payment received by the Indemnifying Person in respect of such rights shall be distributed, first, to the Indemnifying Person in an amount equal to the aggregate payments made by the Indemnifying Person to the Indemnified Person in respect of such Losses and, second, the balance, if any, to the Indemnified Person.

(g) The limitations set forth in Sections 6.3(b) and 6.3(c) shall not apply to any Losses arising from actual fraud on the part of Sellers.

(h) Any Losses for which any Indemnified Person is entitled to indemnification under this Article VI shall be determined without duplication of recovery by reason of the state of facts giving rise to such Losses constituting a misrepresentation or breach of more than one representation, warranty, covenant or agreement.

(i) No claim for indemnification may be made by a Purchaser Indemnified Party and no indemnification shall be required (A) to the extent that such Losses are solely attributable to any action taken by Purchaser, any other Purchaser Indemnified Party or a Controlled Affiliate thereof or (B) to the extent a Purchaser Indemnified Party has previously been indemnified under the Asset Purchase Agreement for any Losses attributable to the same facts, matters or circumstances that are the subject of a claim for indemnification under this Agreement.

 

11


(j) Neither Sellers nor Purchaser shall have any obligation to indemnify any Indemnified Person from and against consequential damages, special damages, incidental damages, indirect damages, punitive damages, treble or other multiple damages, except to the extent such damages are included in any claim by an unaffiliated third party and actually paid by an Indemnified Person to such third party.

(k) From and after the date hereof, in the absence of fraud, the indemnification provided in this Article VI (including all limitations contained herein) shall be the sole and exclusive remedy for all matters relating to this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby, the Remark Media Stock and the misrepresentation or breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained herein; provided, however, that the foregoing limitation shall not limit the rights of the Parties to seek specific performance or injunctive relief. From and after date hereof, each Party expressly waives any and all claims (except with respect to fraud) which it may have under this Agreement or in connection with any matter contemplated hereby or in connection with the process by which the Remark Media Stock has been sold, other than any indemnification claims to the extent provided for in this Article VI provided, however, that the foregoing limitation shall not limit the rights of the Parties to seek specific performance or injunctive relief.

(l) None of the officers, employees, agents, owners, consultants, investment bankers, legal advisors or representatives (each solely in their capacity as such) of either Seller or Purchaser shall have any personal liability or obligation to any of the Purchaser Indemnified Persons or Seller Indemnified Persons, as applicable, in connection with this Agreement or any other document executed in connection herewith or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or in respect of any statement, representation, warranty or assurance of any kind made by either Seller or Purchaser.

Section 6.4 Adjustments to Purchase Price. All payments under this Article VI shall be treated as adjustments to the Purchase Price, unless otherwise required by applicable Law.
