The amendments to the Original Agreement reflected in the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement include, among other things, (i) changes related to the placement of CBG into provisional liquidation and the appointment of joint provisional liquidators over CBG, (ii) changes to the indemnification provisions providing that we are indemnified by specified creditors of CBG signing a joinder to the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement, and that CBG and its joint provisional liquidators will not incur any liability after completion of the transaction and (iii) a change in the outside termination date, after which the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement may be terminated by any party at any time, to August 8, 2016.

The foregoing description of the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement, which is filed herewith as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. We have included the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement to provide investors and stockholders with information regarding its terms, but not to provide any other factual information about us or any of the other parties. The Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement contains representations and warranties that the parties to the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement made to and solely for the benefit of each other, and the assertions embodied in such representations and warranties are qualified by information contained in confidential disclosure schedules that the parties exchanged in connection with signing the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement. Accordingly, investors and stockholders should not rely on such representations and warranties as characterizations of the actual state of facts or circumstances, since they were only made as of the date of the Amended and Restated Purchase Agreement and are modified in important part by the underlying disclosure schedules.

(2)If the Seller delivers written notice (the “Disputed Items Notice”) to the

13


Buyer within fifteen (15) days after receipt of the Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate, stating that the Seller objects to any items on the Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate, specifying the basis for such objection in reasonable detail and setting forth the Seller's proposed modifications to the Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate, the Seller and the Buyer will attempt to resolve and finally determine and agree upon the Closing Purchase Consideration as promptly as practicable.

(3)If the Seller and the Buyer are unable to agree upon the Closing Purchase Consideration within fifteen (15) days after delivery of the Disputed Items Notice, the Seller and the Buyer will refer the matter to an independent, nationally recognized independent accounting firm mutually selected by the Buyer and the Seller, to resolve the disputed items specified in the Disputed Items Notice. If the Buyer and the Seller are unable to agree on the selection of an accounting firm, the accounting firm will be chosen by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), with the expenses of the AAA to be borne fifty percent (50%) by the Seller and fifty percent (50%) by the Buyer. The accounting firm shall address only the disputed items set forth in the Disputed Items Notice and may not assign a value greater than the greatest value claimed for such item by either party in the Disputed Items Notice or smaller than the smallest value claimed for such item by either party in the Disputed Items Notice. The accounting firm will (i) resolve the disputed items specified in the Disputed Items Notice and (ii) determine the Closing Purchase Consideration, as modified only by the resolution of such items. The determination of the selected accounting firm will be made within thirty (30) days after being selected and will be final and binding upon the parties. The fees, costs and expenses of the accounting firm so selected will be borne by the party whose positions generally did not prevail in such determination, or if the accounting firm determines that neither party could be fairly found to be the prevailing party, then such fees, costs and expenses will be borne fifty percent (50%) by the Seller and fifty percent (50%) by the Buyer.

(4)If the Seller does not deliver the Disputed Items Notice to the Buyer within fifteen (15) days after the delivery of the Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate (or at such earlier time as the Seller delivers written notice to the Buyer stating that the Seller does not object to any item on the Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate), the calculation of the Closing Purchase Consideration specified in the Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate will be conclusively presumed to be true and correct in all respects and will be final and binding upon the parties, and the Seller shall be deemed to have agreed with the calculations of Closing Working Capital and Closing Purchase Consideration specified in the Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate.

(5)Within five (5) days after the Closing Purchase Consideration has been finally determined pursuant to this Section 2.04: (i) Seller shall pay to Buyer the amount, if any, by which the final Closing Working Capital as determined in the final Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate is lower than the lesser of (A) the Base Working Capital and (B) the Closing Working Capital as reflected in the Estimated Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate (the “Estimated Working Capital”); and (ii) Buyer shall pay to Seller the amount, if any, by which the final Closing Working Capital as determined in the final Closing

14


Purchase Consideration Certificate is greater than the Estimated Working Capital, but in no event more than the amount of the Working Capital Adjustment as set forth in the Estimated Closing Purchase Consideration Certificate.

(6)Subject to Section 8.02(c), the final determination of the Closing Purchase Consideration under this Section 2.04 shall not impair any other rights of a party under this Agreement, including any rights to indemnification.

(7)After the Closing, the Parent and the Buyer shall, and shall cause its employees to, provide the Seller, its accountants and any accountant selected pursuant to Section 2.04(3) reasonable access to the personnel, properties, books and records of the Parent, the Buyer and the Target Entities in connection with any dispute under this Section 2.04.

Section 8.02Indemnification
(a) Indemnification by the Contributories. Pursuant to clause 5.1(a) of the Distribution Agreement, the Contributories (as that term is defined therein and modified by clause 5.1(a)) other than the Employees (as defined in the recitals to the Distribution Agreement), shall, on behalf of the Seller (the “Seller Indemnitors”), severally but not jointly and on a pro rata basis, indemnify and defend Buyer and its Affiliates and their respective stockholders, officers, directors, employees, successors and assigns (the “Buyer Indemnitees”) against, and shall hold them harmless from, any and all Losses resulting

39


from, based on, arising out of, or incurred by any Buyer Indemnitee in connection with (i) the breach of any representation and warranty of the Seller Management or Target Entities contained in this Agreement, (ii) the breach of any agreement of the Seller contained in this Agreement and (iii) the positive difference, if any, between the finally calculated and reconciled amount of Seller Tax Obligations and the estimated Seller Tax Obligations referenced in Section 2.02(a)(iii), above and it is acknowledged by Buyer that Seller shall incur no liability pursuant to this Section 8.02.
By signing the Distribution Agreement and by signing a separate Joinder to this Agreement, each of the Seller Indemnitors agrees to indemnify and defend the Buyer Indemnitees as provided in this Section 8.02.
(b)Indemnification by Parent and Buyer. Each of the Parent and the Buyer shall indemnify and defend the Seller and its Affiliates, and such respective stockholders, officers, directors, employees, successors and assigns (the “Seller Indemnitees,and together with the Buyer Indemnitees, the “Indemnitees”) against, and shall hold them harmless from, any and all Losses resulting from, based on, arising out of, or incurred by any Seller Indemnitee in connection with (i) the breach of any representation and warranty of the Parent, the Buyer or its Affiliates contained in this Agreement, and (ii) the breach of any covenant or agreement of the Parent, the Buyer or its Affiliates contained in this Agreement.

(c)Limitations on Indemnification.

(i)Other than in instances of fraud, intentional misrepresentation, or willful misconduct or breach of any of the Fundamental Representations, no Indemnitee shall be entitled to recover any Losses for breach of the representations and warranties of any party contained herein, unless such Indemnified Party's cumulative aggregate claims therefor exceed two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) (the “Basket”)), in which case the Indemnitee shall be entitled to recover all Losses. Further, other than in instances of fraud, intentional misrepresentation, or willful misconduct or breach of any of the Fundamental Representations, in no event shall the cumulative aggregate liability of the Seller, on the one hand, and the Parent and the Buyer, on the other hand, under this Agreement or otherwise exceed ten percent (10%) of the Closing Purchase Consideration (the “Cap”), allocated between cash and Warrants in the same proportion as the form of consideration paid for the Closing Purchase Consideration. For the avoidance of doubt, indemnification obligations under clause (iii) of Section 8.02(a) or any indemnification due to a breach of Section 2.04(5) shall not be subject to the Basket or the Cap. Buyer Indemnitees shall first seek indemnification from the Escrow Fund (as defined in the Escrow Agreement), and shall not seek indemnification from the Seller Indemnitors until the Escrow Fund is exhausted.

(ii)The amount of any Loss for which indemnification is provided pursuant to this Section 8.02 shall be net of (i) any amounts actually recovered by the Indemnitee under any insurance policy with respect to such Loss, and (ii) any reserves used in connection with the calculation of Closing Working Capital pursuant to Section 2.04.


40


(iii)Upon making any payment to an Indemnitee for any indemnification claim pursuant to this Agreement, the Indemnifying Party shall be subrogated, to the extent of such payment, to any rights which the Indemnitee may have against any third parties with respect to the subject matter underlying such indemnification claim and the Indemnitee shall assign any such rights to the Indemnifying Party.

(iv) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, no Buyer Indemnitee shall have any right to indemnification under this Section 8.02 to the extent on a dollar for dollar basis such Losses are included in the calculation of Closing Working Capital. In addition, no party shall be entitled to recover Losses relating to any matter arising under any provision of this Agreement solely to the extent and in the amount dollar for dollar such party has actually already recovered the same Losses with respect to the same matters underlying such Losses pursuant to another provision of this Agreement.
(v) For the avoidance of doubt, the Seller will not incur any liability after completion of the Transaction.
(d)     Indemnification Procedure.
(i)Notice of Claim. Any Person making a claim for indemnification pursuant to this Agreement (i.e. an Indemnitee) must give the party from whom indemnification is sought (the “Indemnifying Party”) written notice of such claim (an “Indemnification Claim Notice”) promptly after the Indemnitee suffers, sustains or becomes subject to any Loss or receives any written notice of any action, lawsuit, proceeding, investigation or other claim (a “Proceeding”) against or involving the Indemnitee by any third party or otherwise discovers the liability, obligation or facts giving rise to such claim for indemnification. Such notice must contain, in reasonable detail, a description of the claim and the nature and amount (including the calculation) of such Loss. The failure to promptly give any such notice shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party from any liability hereunder with respect to the subject matter of such claim except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party has actually been damaged by such failure.

(ii)Control of Defense, Conditions. The obligations of an Indemnifying Party under this Section 8.02 with respect to Losses arising from claims of any third party that are subject to the indemnification provided in Sections 8.02(a) and 8.02(b) above shall be governed by the following additional terms and conditions:

(a)At its option, an Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to assume control of the defense of any claim and may appoint as lead counsel of such defense any legal counsel selected by the Indemnifying Party and reasonably acceptable to the Indemnitee; provided, however, that the Indemnifying Party shall have assumed control of such defense within thirty (30) days of the delivery of the Indemnification Claim Notice;

(b)If the Indemnifying Party has assumed control of the defense in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, then the Indemnifying Party shall have the

41


right to settle, compromise or defend such claim at the Indemnifying Party's sole expense, provided that in conducting such defense, settlement and compromise: (x) the Indemnifying Party shall cause its counsel to consult with the Indemnitee and, if applicable, its counsel, and keep them reasonably advised of the progress of the defense, settlement and compromise; (y) such settlement shall involve only monetary damages and provide for a release of the Indemnitee, and (z) the Indemnifying Party shall promptly pay the full amount of any Losses resulting from such claim. Except in accordance with the above terms, any settlement or compromise relating to the defense of a claim shall require the written consent of the Indemnitee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed;

(c)Notwithstanding the above, the Indemnitee shall be entitled to participate in the defense of such claim and to employ counsel of its choice for such purpose; provided, however, that such employment shall be at the Indemnitee's own expense, unless the Indemnifying Party has failed to assume the defense and employ counsel in accordance with this Section 8.02(d), in which case the fees and expenses of the Indemnitee's counsel shall be paid when and as incurred by the Indemnifying Party; and

(d)So long as the Indemnifying Party is contesting any such claim in good faith in an active and diligent manner in accordance with the foregoing requirements, the Indemnitee shall not pay or settle any such claim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indemnitee may pay or settle any such claim at any time, provided that the Indemnitee waives any right to indemnity in relation thereto by the Indemnifying Party.

(iii)     Manner of Payment. Any indemnification obligations pursuant to this Agreement shall be paid within fifteen (15) Business Days after the final determination thereof. Any payments required to be paid to Buyer or a Buyer Indemnitee under this Agreement, shall first be satisfied from the Escrow Fund and paid in accordance with the Escrow Agreement. Any payments required to be paid to an Indemnified Party under this Agreement shall be paid in cash, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, to an account designated by the Indemnified Party.
Section 8.03Exclusive Remedy. Except as set forth in Section 10.11 of this Agreement and except in the event of fraud, willful misconduct, or intentional or grossly negligent misrepresentation, the indemnification provisions of this Agreement shall constitute the sole and exclusive remedy of the parties with respect to any claim arising out of or relating to a breach of a representation, warranty, covenant or agreement set forth in this Agreement or in connection with the Transaction or otherwise relating to this Agreement.
