4.12 The Buyer may waive in whole or part (a) the Regulatory Conditions in respect of the filings with the competent authorities in Austria and/or Spain; (b) the German Tax Condition, (c) the Financial Statements Condition, (d) one or more of the Chapter 11 Conditions or the RSA Condition (and where the Buyer waives a Condition under this clause, that Condition shall be deemed satisfied for the purposes of this Agreement). For the avoidance of doubt, (x) if the RSA Condition is satisfied, the Chapter 11 Conditions shall be automatically waived for all purposes of this Agreement and (y) if an Acceptable Sale Motion is filed with the Bankruptcy Court within the time period required by clause 4.4(g)(ii)(A), the RSA Condition and the obligation in clause 4.7(c) shall be automatically waived for all purposes of this Agreement.
4.13 If it becomes reasonably apparent to the Buyer (who shall inform the Sellers' Representative of this fact together with any other relevant details) or to any Seller (who shall inform the Buyer and the other Sellers of this fact together with any other relevant details) that any Governmental Authority will only clear, consent to or approve the Transaction subject to any conditions, undertakings and/or commitments or similar measures, the Buyer or any member of the Buyer's Group shall offer sufficient conditions, undertakings and/or commitments or similar measures, solely in relation to the InfraCo Business and/or to the InfraCo Assets, to the relevant Governmental Authority to obtain clearance, consent or approval. For the avoidance of doubt, the Buyer or any member of the Buyer's Group shall not be required to offer conditions, undertakings and/or commitments or similar measures in relation to their own business or assets.
4.14 For the avoidance of doubt, the Buyer's compliance with any condition, obligation or other requirement imposed or contained in any decision by the Governmental Authority, or the effectuation of any offer made by the Buyer to the Governmental Authority pursuant to clauses 4.11 will not result in any change to the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including, without limitation, the Consideration) and any costs incurred in relation thereto shall be borne solely by the Buyer.
4.15 The Buyer shall notify the Sellers' Representative or its advisers promptly (but in any event within two (2) Business Days) upon becoming aware that:
(a) circumstances have arisen that could result in any of the Competition Conditions or the Regulatory Conditions not being satisfied prior to the Termination Date (as defined below) together with such details of the relevant circumstances as are in the Buyer's possession at the relevant time; or
(b) any of the Competition Conditions or the Regulatory Conditions has been fulfilled.
4.16 The Buyer shall bear all the costs and expenses incurred in connection with the filing contemplated by clause 4.6(a)(i) and the satisfaction of the Competition Condition and the Regulatory Conditions.
US Regulatory Approval
4.17 In the event that the consent of the Federal Communications Commission pursuant to the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and the Cable Landing License Act of 1921 or clearance by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States pursuant to Section 721 of the Defense Production Act of 1950, as amended, is reasonably likely to be materially delayed, the parties shall work together in good faith to proceed to Completion with respect to the InfraCo Non-US Group Companies as soon as reasonably practicable, including without limitation considering whether the completion and transfer of the InfraCo Non-US Group
A44416060
46


Companies can be effected promptly (but subject always to the provisions of clauses 4 to 7) and in advance of the completion and transfer of the InfraCo US Group Company. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this clause 4.17 shall release the Sellers from their obligation to sell and the Buyer from its obligation to purchase the InfraCo US Group Company, subject to the wider provisions of this clause 4.
Spanish Regulatory Approval
4.18 In the event that the consent of the Council of Ministers or (if applicable) the General Directorate for International Trade and Investment pursuant to Article 7(bis) of Law 19/2003 of 4 July on the legal regime of capital movements and economic transactions abroad and on certain measures to prevent money laundering ('Spanish Regulatory Approval') is reasonably likely to be materially delayed, the parties shall work together in good faith to proceed to Completion with respect to those Group Companies that can be transferred to the Buyer without the Spanish Regulatory Approval (the 'InfraCo Non-Spanish Group Companies') as soon as reasonably practicable, including without limitation considering whether the completion and transfer of the InfraCo Non-Spanish Group Companies can be effected promptly (but subject always to the provisions of clauses 4 to 7) and in advance of the completion and transfer of the remaining Group Companies. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this clause 4.18 shall release the Sellers from their obligation to sell and the Buyer from its obligation to purchase the Group Companies to which the Spanish Regulatory Approval relates, subject to the wider provisions of this clause 4.
German Tax Condition
4.19 The Sellers shall either:
(a) procure that (i) all of the rights, title and interest of the existing policy holder under each of the German Tax Insurance Policies is validly and effectively assigned to such Group Company as the Buyer may validly elect under the terms of such policy, such that the relevant Group Company will have the full benefit of the German Tax Insurance Policies at and from Completion, (ii) written consent to such assignment has been obtained from each relevant insurer (whether or not required in connection the assignment) and (iii) legally binding written confirmation has been obtained from each relevant insurer that a valid and subsisting claim has been commenced under each relevant German Tax Insurance Policy within the relevant policy period (collectively a 'German Tax Insurance Policy Assignment'). The Sellers shall be responsible for all costs and expenses in connection with such German Tax Insurance Policy Assignment; or
(b) procure that an insurance policy is obtained in the name and for the benefit of such Group Company as the Buyer may validly elect, on terms substantively equivalent to the terms of the German Tax Insurance Policies (including as to the scope of coverage of insured losses) and with a limit of liability of not less than EUR 90 million and otherwise on terms acceptable to the Buyer (acting reasonably) (a 'German Tax Replacement Insurance Policy'). The Sellers shall be responsible for all costs and expenses in connection with such German Tax Replacement Insurance Policy; or
(c) elect for the Buyer to withhold an amount equal to EUR90 million (the 'German Tax Cash Collateralisation Amount') from the Initial Purchase Price (a 'German Tax Cash Collateralisation').
4.20 Where the Sellers have elected to make a German Tax Cash Collateralisation, on each occasion on which the Buyer brings a successful Tax Covenant Claim against the Sellers pursuant to which the Sellers are or become liable under paragraph 2.3(a) of the Tax Covenant, the German Tax Cash Collateralisation Amount shall be reduced by an amount equal to the amount for which the Sellers are or become so liable and the obligations of the Sellers to make a payment to the Buyer pursuant to the Tax Covenant shall not apply to the
A44416060
47


extent the amounts so payable do not exceed the German Tax Cash Collateralisation Amount (immediately prior to the reduction).
4.21 If and to the extent not already called upon pursuant to clause 4.20, the German Tax Cash Collateralisation Amount (as may have been reduced from time to time in accordance with clause 4.20) shall become payable to the Principal Seller on the earlier of: (a) the date falling six months after the date of issuance and formal notification of a Finally Determined Tax Assessment or Final Tax Court Decision from which it can be derived that the Group Companies shall not be liable for any Taxation in respect of the Phoenix/Alma Matter; and (b) ten (10) Business Days after the date of expiry of the statutory limitation period in respect of the potential claims for all liabilities in respect of Tax in respect of the Phoenix/Alma Matter. For the purposes of this clause 4.21, 'Final Tax Court Decision' means a final non-appealable judgment of a German fiscal court; and 'Finally Determined Tax Assessment' means a final non-appealable and binding Tax assessment which can no longer be amended.
4.22 The Principal Seller shall provide regular updates to the Buyer in respect of progress towards satisfaction of the German Tax Condition.
Termination in the event of non-fulfilment
4.23 The Conditions shall be satisfied as soon as practicable but in any event on or before the date falling twelve (12) calendar months after the date of this Agreement (the 'Termination Date'), provided that the Buyer may unilaterally elect, by Notice to the Sellers prior to the expiry of the Termination Date, to extend the Termination Date in the event that all of the Conditions other than the Financial Statements Condition have been satisfied to such date as the Buyer determines in its sole discretion to allow the Financial Statements Condition to be satisfied (and where the Buyer so elects, the new date proposed by the Buyer shall thereafter be the Termination Date for the purposes of this Agreement). The Buyer may extend the Termination Date more than once under this clause but in no circumstances shall the Termination Date be a date falling more than fourteen (14) calendar months from the date of this Agreement.
4.24 Subject to any agreement in writing between the parties to the contrary pursuant to clause 4.17, clause 4.18 or otherwise, this Agreement shall automatically terminate:
(a) if the Conditions are not all satisfied on or before the Termination Date; or
(b) if the Completion has not occurred prior to the Long Stop Date,
in each case, unless (i) the Sellers' Representative and the Buyer have agreed otherwise in writing prior to any such date or (ii), in the case of (b), the Buyer has elected to extend the Termination Date in accordance with clause 4.23.
Break-Up Fee
4.25
(a) If this Agreement is terminated for any reason other than a breach by Buyer of any of its material obligations under this Agreement, the Sellers shall pay the Buyer's Restructuring Expenses to the Buyer within five (5) Business Days of the Buyer providing to the Principal Seller documentation supporting the amount of the Buyer's Restructuring Expenses; provided further that in the event that any of the Sellers or any member(s) of the Sellers' Group commence a Chapter 11 Case prior to any such termination of this Agreement, the Sellers' obligations under this clause 4.25(a) shall be subject to Bankruptcy Court approval.
(b) If this Agreement is terminated pursuant to clauses 5.1(h) (however, only to the extent that the default referred to in this clause amounts to a material breach by any Seller of any of its obligations under clause 6.2, Schedule 11, Schedule 13, Schedule 16
A44416060
48


and Schedule 17), 5.5(a), 5.5(b), 5.5(c) (but only to the extent that the Sellers have not used all reasonable efforts to satisfy the Sale Condition) or 5.5(d), the Sellers agree that they shall be liable to the Buyer for the full amount of the Break-Up Fee immediately as of such termination, provided that payment of the Break-Up Fee by the Sellers shall be deferred until five (5) Business Days following the earlier of the consummation of: (x) a sale of the Shares to a third party purchaser (other than the Buyer or any Affiliate of the Buyer), (y) a sale of all or substantially all of the assets for the Target Companies to a third party purchaser (other than the Buyer or any Affiliate of the Buyer) or (z) a plan of reorganization pursuant to chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code with respect to the Sellers and/or the member(s) of the Sellers' Group for which Chapter 11 Cases have been commenced; provided further that in the event that this Agreement is terminated (i) pursuant to clause 5.5(c) and the Break Up Fee is not payable in connection with such termination or (ii) pursuant to clause 4.24 and as of the date of such termination the RSA Condition has not been satisfied and the Sellers and/or any member(s) of the Sellers' Group have not commenced Chapter 11 Cases, the Buyer shall be entitled to the Break Up Fee pursuant to this clause 4.25(b) if the Sellers and/or member(s) of the Sellers' Group (1) enter into any alternative transaction pursuant to which the Shares and/or substantially all of the assets of the Target Companies are owned, directly or indirectly, by a third party (other than the Buyer or any Affiliate of the Buyer), including without limitation a transaction or reorganization described in clauses 4.25(b)(x), 4.25(b)(y) or 4.25(b)(z), for consideration with respect to the Shares and/or the assets of the Target Companies that is of equal or greater value than the Aggregate Base Purchase Price and such alternative transaction is entered into within eighteen (18) months following the termination of this Agreement and is subsequently consummated, with the payment of the Break-Up Fee by the Sellers deferred until five (5) business days after such consummation or (2) enter into a binding sale agreement with respect to a credit bid that includes the Shares and/or substantially all of the assets of the Target Companies within eighteen (18) months following the termination of this Agreement and such credit bid transaction is subsequently consummated, with the payment of the Break-Up Fee by the Sellers deferred until five (5) business days after such consummation; provided further that in the event the Sellers or any member(s) of the Sellers' Group commence a Chapter 11 Case prior to any such termination of this Agreement, the Sellers' obligations under this clause 4.25(b) shall be subject to Bankruptcy Court approval. For the avoidance of doubt, the consummation of a sale pursuant to a credit bid under Bankruptcy Code section 363(k) shall constitute a sale for purposes of this clause 4.25(b);
(c) To the extent applicable, the Buyer's right to payment of the BreakUp Fee and/or the Buyer's right to payment of the Buyer's Restructuring Expenses by the Sellers pursuant to this clause 4.25 shall constitute administrative expenses in any Chapter 11 Cases pursuant to Section 503(b) or 507(a)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code with priority over any and all administrative expenses of a kind specified in sections 503(b) and 507(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, but junior in priority to any super priority administrative expense claims granted in connection with any order approving the use of cash collateral and/or DIP Financing, and senior to all other administrative expenses in such Chapter 11 Cases; and
(d) In the event that the Break-Up Fee and/or the Buyer's Restructuring Expenses become due and payable by the Sellers pursuant to the terms of this clause 4.25, the Sellers shall pay to the Buyer the Break-Up Fee and/or (as applicable) the Buyer's Restructuring Expenses, by wire transfer of immediately available funds; provided, however, that under no circumstances shall the Sellers be obligated to pay the Break-Up Fee or the Buyer's Restructuring Expenses more than once. Notwithstanding anything herein, but subject to the terms of any Acceptable Sale Order, upon payment by the Sellers of (1) in the case of clause 4.25(a) of this Agreement, the Buyer's Restructuring Expenses, and/or (2) in the case of clause 4.25(b) of this Agreement, the Break-Up Fee, the Buyer shall be precluded from pursuing any other remedy
A44416060
49


against the Sellers and any member of the Sellers' Group arising out of the termination of this Agreement, the Transaction or (as applicable) the commencement of the relevant Chapter 11 Case, at law or in equity or otherwise, provided that the payment of the Buyer's Restructuring Expenses shall not preclude recovery pursuant to clause 4.25(b) of this Agreement, and payment of a Break-Up Fee shall not preclude recovery pursuant to clause 4.25(a) of this Agreement. The Buyer shall not otherwise seek to otherwise obtain any recovery, judgment, or damages of any kind against the Sellers or any member of the Sellers' Group arising out of the termination of this Agreement, the Transaction or (as applicable) the commencement of the relevant Chapter 11 Case. Having taken appropriate advice, the parties agree that the Break-Up Fee constitutes a fair and reasonable amount payable by the Sellers in the event that this Agreement is terminated pursuant to clauses 5.1(h), 5.5(a), 5.5(b), 5.5(c), or 5.5(d), being a genuine pre-estimate of the losses that the Buyer will suffer in that event (such losses being likely to include, but not be limited to, the incurrence of substantial costs and expenses, lost opportunity, reputational harm and/or adverse market reaction). The parties further irrevocably agree that the obligation to pay the Break-Up Fee (insofar as it arises) is a primary and not a secondary obligation falling upon the Sellers.

16.2 Unless the parties agree in writing otherwise, to the extent that, following Completion, any of the Pre-Completion Tax Returns or Pre-Completion Tax Documents have not been prepared and/or delivered to the Buyer in accordance with clause 16.1 (each a 'Delayed Pre-Completion Tax Return' or 'Delayed Pre-Completion Tax Document', as the case may be), the parties shall treat each such Delayed Pre-Completion Tax Returns and Delayed Pre-Completion Tax Documents as if they were tax returns (or other documents) arising from a Straddle Period, such that clause 16.5 will apply to such returns and documents, save that the reasonable fees properly incurred in good faith by the Buyer or Group Company (as applicable) with respect to the preparation, etc. of any such Delayed Pre-Completion Tax Return or Delayed Pre-Completion Tax Document shall be paid by the Sellers within thirty (30) days of Seller's receipt of an invoice from the Buyer or Buyer's agent.
16.3 Subject to clause 16.5, the Buyer shall, or shall procure that the relevant Group Company shall, authorise, sign and submit to the relevant Taxation Authority any Pre-Completion Tax Return or Pre-Completion Tax Document without amendment or with such amendments as the Buyer may reasonably require and agree with the Sellers, or their duly authorised agents, in writing prior to submission.

A44416060
76


(c) the Buyer is consulted fully in relation to the matter referred to in clause 16.4(a) above and any reasonable comments of the Buyer or its duly authorised agent are taken into account in relation to such matters.
16.5 The Buyer, or its duly authorised agents, shall from Completion, in respect of a Straddle Period, at the relevant Group Company's cost and expense, use reasonable endeavours to:
(a) prepare the Tax returns and computations of the relevant Group Company (insofar as they relate to the part of the Straddle Period prior to Completion) in a manner that:
(i) in relation to transfer pricing, is consistent with the Group's transfer pricing methodology as at Completion; and
(ii) in relation to all matters other than transfer pricing, is consistent with past practice insofar as it might reasonably be expected to materially affect the liability to Tax of the Sellers' Group or the liability of the Sellers under this Agreement (and save to the extent required by law or generally accepted accounting practice applicable to a Group Company at Completion),
provided that no Group Company shall be required to adopt any position in such a Tax return or computation to the extent the Buyer considers, in its reasonable opinion, such position to be false, misleading or inaccurate in any material respect;
(b) deliver all such returns and computations to the Sellers as soon as practicable and, in any case, at least fifteen (15) Business Days prior to their submission to the relevant Taxation Authority;
(c) promptly submit such returns and computations to the relevant Taxation Authority after taking into account all reasonable comments of the Sellers, or their duly authorised agent, in respect of the part of the Straddle Period prior to Completion or which otherwise relate to matters which could affect the Sellers' liability under this Agreement received at least five (5) Business Days prior to the submission of such return or computation; and
(d) deal with all matters relating to the Straddle Period returns including the conduct of all related negotiations and correspondence with the relevant Taxation Authority, provided that it shall keep the Sellers fully and promptly informed of all material matters relating to the Straddle Period returns or negotiations insofar as they relate to the part of the Straddle Period prior to Completion or otherwise relate to matters which could affect the Sellers' liability under this Agreement and will provide the Sellers with:
(i) copies of all relevant correspondence and documentation relating to all such matters; and
(ii) copies of all relevant documents in the Buyer's or the relevant Group Company's possession or control in relation to that matter.
16.6 The Buyer agrees that it shall not, and shall procure that no person shall, make any claim, election, surrender, disclaimer, notice or consent with respect to any Group Company in connection with the transactions effected and/or contemplated by to this Agreement without the prior written agreement of the Sellers (not to be unreasonably delayed or withheld), including but not limited to an election pursuant to section 338(g) of the Code with respect to any Group Company which is a non U.S. corporation within the meaning of Section 7701(a)(5) of the Code
16.7 The Sellers agree to use reasonable commercial efforts to:
A44416060
77


(a) cooperate with the Buyer in providing information in respect of the Group in respect ofany Pre-Completion Tax Period or Straddle Period, that is not in the possession of the Group at Completion, and that is necessary for completing and finalising any tax returns or dealing with the Tax affairs of the Group, the Buyer or its Affiliates in respect of a Pre-Completion Tax Period or the Straddle Period; and
16.8 provide the Buyer with such reasonable assistance as may be required to enable the Buyer to discharge its obligations or exercise its rights in respect of the Delayed Pre-Closing Tax Returns and Delayed Pre-Closing Tax Documents.
17. TAX
The provisions of Schedule 20 shall take effect from Completion, subject to the exclusions, limitations and qualifications set out therein.
18. SELLERS' REPRESENTATIVE
18.1 Each Seller hereby appoints the Principal Seller to be the Sellers' representative (the 'Sellers' Representative') and authorises it to take all such action as this Agreement expressly provides to be taken by the Sellers' Representative, including to receive Notices on behalf of each Seller.
18.2 The Sellers may jointly at any time appoint a different person to act as the Sellers' Representative and the Sellers' Representative may elect no longer to act as such, provided that in each such case, the Sellers jointly appoint a replacement and give written notice to the Buyer within five (5) Business Days of such new appointment.
19. ASSIGNMENT
19.1 Subject to clause 2.3 and 19.2, no party shall be entitled to assign, transfer, charge, sub-contract, delegate, create any trust or otherwise deal with the benefit or burden of any provision of this Agreement without the prior written consent of (i) in the case of an assignment by a Seller, the Buyer and (ii) in the case of an assignment by the Buyer, the Sellers' Representative.
19.2 This Agreement and the benefits arising under it may (by giving written notice to each other party) be assigned and, in the case of clauses (b) and (d) of this paragraph 19.2, charged or made subject to a trust, in whole or in part by:
(a) any Sellers to any member of the Sellers' Group (provided that if such assignee ceases to be a member of the Sellers' Group, the Sellers shall procure that this Agreement and the benefits arising under it are assigned back to the Sellers or another member of the Sellers' Group immediately prior to such cessation);
(b) (i) the Buyer to lending or hedging institutions or other creditors or any member of their respective groups (including funds and hedge counterparties) or any security agent or trustee acting on their behalf as security agent, in each case for any financing, syndication or refinancing in respect of the Transaction (including any additional facilities and hedging made available in connection with such financing, syndication or refinancing) and (ii) also to any other financial or hedging institution or other creditors by way of security for the borrowings of the Buyer resulting from any refinancing of the borrowings made under (i) above or to any person entitled to enforce such security or to any transferee under a valid enforcement of such security, but so that, in the case of both (i) and (ii) above and notwithstanding any such assignment(s), the Sellers may, unless they receive written notice of enforcement of the relevant security interest, deal with the Buyer in connection with all matters arising under this Agreement;
A44416060
78


(c) the Buyer to any member of the Buyer's Group to whom that Buyer transfers any of the Shares (provided that if such assignee ceases to be a member of the Buyer's Group, that Buyer shall procure that this Agreement and the benefits arising under it are assigned back to that Buyer or another member of the Buyer's Group immediately prior to such cessation); and
(d) any Seller to a financial institution as security where (and only to the extent) it is required to provide such security under the GTT Third Party Debt Arrangements,
in each case, provided that (i) the liability of any party to such assignee shall be no greater, nor more likely, than it would have been had such assignment not taken place, (ii) the assignee, chargee or trustee is not (A) the subject of any actual, threatened or reasonably antiticipated insolvency or similar proceedings or (B) a Sanctioned Person, and (iii) all the rights, benefits and protections afforded to a party shall continue to apply to the benefit of that party as against the assignee as they would have applied as against the assignor.
19.3 Any purported assignment, transfer, charging, sub-contracting, delegation, declaration of trust or dealing in contravention of this clause 19 shall be ineffective.
20. COSTS AND EXPENSES
20.1 Except as otherwise provided for in this Agreement, each of the parties shall pay its own costs and expenses in relation to the negotiation, preparation, execution, performance and implementation of this Agreement and each other Transaction Document, save that this clause shall not prejudice the right of any party to seek to recover its costs in any litigation or dispute resolution procedure which may arise out of this Agreement or another Transaction Document.
20.2 The Buyer shall bear all stamp duties, stamp duty land tax, notarial fees, sales taxes, transfer taxes or other similar Taxes ('Transfer Taxes') payable as a result of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (other than Transfer Taxes incurred in respect of the Reorganisation, which shall be the responsibility of the Sellers), and shall be solely responsible for arranging the payment of any such Transfer Taxes.
20.3 Subject to clause 20.4, the Sellers' Group shall bear all the costs and expenses incurred (whether incurred prior to or following Completion) in connection with the implementation and completion of the Reorganisation and for the avoidance of doubt this shall include, but not be limited to, all the costs and expenses incurred by the Group Companies, the InfraCo Business, the Buyer and the Buyer's Group in connection with the Reorganisation.
20.4 The Sellers shall bear all costs and expenses incurred (whether incurred prior to or following Completion) in connection with the implementation and completion of the CMD Milestone and the Future System Milestone (including, for the avoidance of doubt, all costs and expenses in connection with the Infosys Contracts to the extent not already taken into account in the Completion Statements, including in the Completion Working Capital). The Buyer and the Group Companies shall bear their own incidental out-of-pocket costs and expenses associated with the implementation and completion of the CMD Milestone and the Future System Milestone.
21. PAYMENTS AND NO SET-OFF
21.1 Save as otherwise set out in this Agreement (including in Schedule 23), all payments to be made under this Agreement shall be made in full without any set-off or counterclaim and free from any deduction or withholding, save as may be required by law, in which event such deduction or withholding shall not exceed the minimum amount which it is required by law to deduct or withhold.
A44416060
79


21.2 If a payor is required to deduct or withhold any amount of or in respect of Tax from any payment under this Agreement, other than the payment of any amount of Consideration for the purchase of the Shares by the Buyer, the amount to be paid to the payee by the payor shall be increased to such amount as will ensure that the net amount received by the payee after such deduction or withholding has been taken into account is equal to the full amount which would have been received and retained by the payee had the amount not been subject to deduction or withholding and any amounts withheld (including any amounts in respect of the Consideration) shall be the minimum required by law and shall be remitted by the payor to the relevant Taxation Authority within the relevant time limits.
21.3 Clause 21.2 shall not apply to the extent that the deduction or withholding would not have arisen but for the payee being tax resident elsewhere than its jurisdiction of incorporation or an assignment by the payee of its rights under this Agreement.
21.4 The Buyer shall act in good faith to determine the amount due to be withheld from the Consideration (if any) and shall notify the Sellers of the amount proposed to be withheld at least twenty (20) Business Days prior to any such withholding. The Buyer and Sellers shall use reasonable commercial efforts to agree the amount of any such withholding. The Buyer shall provide the Principal Seller with any documentation, evidence or other information reasonably required by the Sellers in connection with any refund, tax or other recovery of any amounts so withheld.
21.5 If any sum payable by the Sellers to the Buyer under this Agreement will be subject to Tax in the hands of the Buyer, the amount payable will be increased so as to ensure that the net amount retained by the Buyer after taking such Taxation into account (and after taking into account the timing and value of any Relief the Buyer may obtain as a result of the matter giving rise to the payment) is equal to the full amount which would have been retained but for such Taxation.
21.6 Where under the terms of this Agreement one party is liable to indemnify or reimburse another party in respect of any costs, charges or expenses, the payment shall include an amount equal to any VAT thereon not otherwise recoverable by the other party or the representative member of any VAT group of which it forms part.
21.7 If any payment under this Agreement constitutes the consideration for a taxable supply for VAT purposes, then (i) the recipient shall provide to the payer a valid VAT invoice, and (ii) except where the reverse charge procedure applies, and subject to the provision of a valid VAT invoice in accordance with (i), in addition to that payment the payer shall pay to the recipient any VAT due.
22. VARIATIONS AND WAIVERS
22.1 No variation of this Agreement shall be effective unless made in writing signed by or on behalf of all the parties and expressed to be such a variation.
22.2 A waiver of any right, power, privilege or remedy provided by this Agreement must be in writing and may be given subject to any conditions thought fit by the grantor. For the avoidance of doubt, any omission to exercise, or delay in exercising, any right, power, privilege or remedy provided by this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of that or any other right, power, privilege or remedy.
22.3 A waiver of any right, power, privilege or remedy provided by this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any other breach or default by the other party and shall not constitute a continuing waiver of the right, power, privilege or remedy waived or a waiver of any other right, power, privilege or remedy.
A44416060
80


22.4 Any single or partial exercise of any right, power, privilege or remedy arising under this Agreement shall not preclude or impair any other or further exercise of that or any other right, power, privilege or remedy.

23.2 If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable but would be valid or enforceable if some part of the provision were deleted or amended, the provision in question will apply with the minimum modifications necessary to make it valid and enforceable.

28. THIRD PARTY RIGHTS
28.1 Any member of the Sellers' Group (in respect of clause 12, clause 10 and clause 13.6) and any member of the Buyer's Group (in respect of clause 8.12, clause 12 and clause 10), in each case to the extent such clauses benefit those third parties, may enforce the terms of such clauses pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.

SCHEDULE 3

Establishment of the Consideration
Part 1: Completion Statements
1.1 As soon as practicable and in any event no later than one hundred and twenty (120) days after the Completion Date, the Buyer shall, for the purpose of establishing the Cash Amount, the Debt Amount, the Working Capital Adjustment and the EBITDA Adjustment, prepare a draft of the Completion Balance Sheet, a draft of the Cash Statement, a draft of the Debt Statement, a draft of the Working Capital Statement and a draft of the EBITDA Statement in accordance with the accounting treatments set out in Part 2 of this Schedule 3 and in the formats set out in Parts C and D of Part 2 of Schedule 3 and shall submit these drafts to the Sellers for review together with copies of the relevant supporting accounts and information used to prepare such statements, to the extent reasonable. For the avoidance of doubt, the schedules set out in Parts C and D of Part 2 of this Schedule 3 provide the format pursuant to which the Completion Statements should be prepared and the numbers included therein are worked examples provided for illustrative purposes only. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, if Completion is due to take place prior to 1 July 2021, the process in respect of the EBITDA Adjustment shall be deferred until following 1 July 2021 so that the H1 2021 EBITDA Amount can be identified.
1.2 Within forty-five (45) days following delivery thereof, the Sellers shall review the draft of the Completion Balance Sheet, the draft Cash Statement, the draft Debt Statement, the draft Working Capital Statement and the draft EBITDA Statement and, on the basis of such review, the Sellers may provide Notice to the Buyer of any item or items it wishes to dispute (the 'Notice of Disagreement'). The parties agree that all the line items not disputed by the Sellers in the Notice of Disagreement are agreed between the parties and unconditionally accepted by the Sellers. The Notice of Disagreement shall include (i) a list of each line item in the relevant draft statements with which the Sellers disagree and the proposed amount of adjustments, substantiated in reasonably sufficient detail so as to allow reasonable assessment thereof by the Buyer and the Buyer's accountant, (ii) a summary of the reasons for such dispute in respect of each line item and (iii) a confirmation of the Sellers accepting and unconditionally approving all the not disputed line items.
1.3 If upon expiry of the aforesaid objection period of forty-five (45) days no Notice of Disagreement has been received by the Buyer pursuant to paragraph 1.2 of this Schedule 3 or if the Sellers have notified the Buyer that there are no items they wish to dispute, the Cash Statement, the Debt Statement, the Working Capital Statement and the EBITDA Statement and the Cash Amount, the Debt Amount, the Working Capital Adjustment and the EBITDA Adjustment following therefrom shall be final and binding on the parties.
1.4 The parties shall give each other (and their respective accountants) all information and assistance reasonably required or desirable for the preparation by the Buyer or the review by the Sellers, as the case may be, of the draft of the Completion Balance Sheet, the draft Cash Statement, the draft Debt Statement, the draft Working Capital Statement and the draft EBITDA Statement (including reasonable access to personnel, accounting records and supporting schedules).
OPEN ISSUES
1.5 If a Notice of Disagreement has been received by the Buyer pursuant to paragraph 1.2 of this Schedule 3, the parties shall try to amicably resolve the issue. Should they fail to do so within twenty (20) Business Days of the end of the aforesaid objection period of forty-five (45) days (for the purpose of this Schedule the 'Disagreement Date') then any such unresolved issue (for the purpose of this Schedule the 'Open Issues') shall be submitted to and settled by an accountant of a firm of international repute and with sufficient and relevant expertise (for the
A44416060
112


purpose of this Schedule the 'Accountant') to be jointly appointed by the parties within fourteen (14) days of the Disagreement Date or, if the parties fail to agree on such appointment within that period, each party may make an application to the President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales to appoint the Accountant.
1.6 The parties shall within ten (10) Business Days after such appointment submit the draft of the Completion Balance Sheet, the draft Cash Statement, the draft Debt Statement, the draft Working Capital Statement and the draft EBITDA Statement and statements of their respective positions in writing to the Accountant. The Accountant shall determine the further procedural rules at his/her discretion.
1.7 The parties undertake to procure that the Accountant shall then resolve the Open Issues by way of a binding determination in accordance with the Agreement and notify the parties of his/her decision, as soon as practicable after his/her appointment. Based on the Accountant's resolution of the Open Issues, the Accountant shall determine the final Cash Amount, the Debt Amount, the Working Capital Adjustment and the EBITDA Adjustment and the Consideration shall be accordingly finalised. The fees and expenses arising out of the engagement of the Accountant shall be borne by the parties in a manner and/or in proportion determined by the Accountant or in the absence of such determination be split equally between the Buyer and the Seller.
1.8 The Accountant shall be required to determine, applying the provisions of this Agreement, only those matters that this Agreement provides should be determined by them, and not any additional or separate issues raised by the parties. Where the parties disagree on any number to be included in or taken into account for the purposes of the Completion Statements, other than in case of fraud or manifest error, the Accountant may not determine that number to be greater than the higher of the two numbers in dispute or determine it to be lower than the lower of the two numbers in dispute. In making their determination, the Accountant shall act as an expert and not as an arbitrator.
1.9 The Accountant may, if it considers it to be necessary or desirable, appoint a lawyer of a reputable English law firm, who has the legal background and experience ('Lawyer') to decide on a dispute as referred herein, as an expert to decide on any legal matter in connection with the determination of the settlement amounts in accordance with this Schedule 3, including but not limited to (i) the explanation of the intention of the parties when entering into this Agreement and/or (ii) the explanation of (certain provisions and/or definitions of) this Agreement. The Accountant's decision shall, however, be issued solely by the Accountant.
1.10 Each party shall timely provide any additional information requested by the Accountant and/or the Lawyer in writing (with copies of any such communications with the Accountant and/or the Lawyer to be provided to the other party). No party may unilaterally contact the Accountant and/or the Lawyer other than in writing with the other parties in copy. The failure of either party to timely submit to the Accountant and the Lawyer a written statement of its position or to otherwise fail to respond to any request of the Accountant or the Lawyer for information, shall not preclude or delay the Accountant's and the Lawyer's determination of the Open Issues on the basis of the information which will have been submitted.
Part 2: Completion Statements Accounting Policies
PART A: COMPLETION STATEMENTS
1.1 In preparing the Completion Statements:
(a) the items and amounts to be included in the calculation of the Completion Balance Sheet, the Cash Amount, the Debt Amount, the Working Capital Adjustment and the EBITDA Adjustment shall be identified by applying the relevant definitions in clause 1 and applying the accounting policies set out in paragraph 1.1(b) of this Schedule 3
A44416060
113

8.2 Notwithstanding anything in paragraph 8.1 above, in respect of a Tax Covenant Claim under paragraph 2.3(a) of the Tax Covenant, the Buyer must take reasonable steps to pursue recovery under the Tax Policies in addition to bringing a claim against the Sellers it being acknowledged and agreed that nothing in the foregoing:
(a) restricts the Buyer's ability to bring a Tax Covenant Claim pursuant to paragraph 2.3(a) at the same time as seeking recovery pursuant to the Tax Policies
(b) restricts the Buyer's ability to pursue its Tax Covenant Claim under paragraph 2.3(a) against the Sellers where recovery pursuant to the Sellers' Tax Insurance Policies is not reasonably likely to be achieved (in the opinion of the Buyer acting reasonably); or
(c) restricts or limits the liability of the Sellers pursuant to paragraph 2.3(a) of the Tax Covenant for any amounts not recoverable or recovered by the Buyer or any member of the Group under the Tax Policies including but not limited to (i) any retention amount(s) under the Tax Policies and (ii) any amounts in excess of the maximum liability of the insurers under the Tax Policies.
8.3 For the avoidance of doubt, if the due date for payment under this Agreement in respect of a successful Tax Covenant Claim against the Sellers pursuant to sub-paragraph 2.3(a) of the Tax Covenant falls before the date of payment of an amount from an insurer pursuant to a Tax Policy in respect of the same matter giving rise to such Tax Covenant Claim, then notwithstanding anything in this paragraph 8, the Sellers will be required to pay such amounts as would be required to be paid absent the relevant Tax Policy pursuant to paragraph 6 of Schedule 20, provided that if a German Tax Cash Collateralisation has been made, the provisions of clause 4.19 and 4.20 and 4.21 shall apply any liability of the Sellers up to the amount of the German Tax Cash Collateralisation Amount (as may have been reduced from time to time in accordance with clause 4.20) and shall instead be funded from the German Tax Cash Collateralisation (to the fullest extent possible) and further provided that in all circumstances the Sellers shall be entitled to rely on paragraph 9.2 of this Schedule 6 in
A44416060
148


respect of any amounts later recovered from the insurers under any Tax Policy in respect of the same matter.
8.4 Any reasonable costs and expenses actually and properly incurred by the Buyer or any Group Company in recovering sums under the Tax Policies shall be deemed to be costs and expenses within paragraph 2.3(d) of Schedule 20.
8.5 For the purposes of this paragraph 8 the 'Tax Policies' means the Sellers' Tax Insurance Policies, the German Tax Replacement Insurance Policy and the Alma Matter Insurance Policy.
9. RECOVERY FROM THIRD PARTIES
9.1 If, in respect of any Warranty Claim, Tax Covenant Claim or Reorganisation Indemnity Claim where the liability of the Sellers exceeds or may exceed the liability cap of one euro (€ 1) provided for in paragraph 3.2 of this Part 1 of Schedule 6, the Buyer or any member of the Buyer's Group recovers or is entitled to recover (whether by payment, discount, credit, relief, set-off or otherwise) from a third party (other than under the W&I Policy) a sum which indemnifies or compensates the Buyer or any member of the Buyer's Group (in whole or in part) in respect of the loss or liability which is the subject matter of the Warranty Claim, Tax Covenant Claim or Reorganisation Indemnity Claim, the Buyer shall take all reasonable steps to enforce the recovery against the third party and any actual recovery (less all costs and expenses actually and properly incurred by the Buyer or the relevant Group Company in recovering such sum and any and all Taxation payable by the Buyer or the relevant Group Company (or that would have been payable but for the availability of any Relief) by virtue of its receipt) shall reduce or satisfy, as the case may be, such claim to the extent of such recovery (but the foregoing shall not restrict the Buyer's ability to pursue its Warranty Claim, Tax Covenant Claim or Reorganisation Indemnity Claim against the Sellers).
9.2 If the Sellers have paid an amount in discharge of any Tax Covenant Claim, Warranty Claim or Reorganisation Indemnity Claim in excess of the liability of one euro (€ 1) provided for in paragraph 3.2 of this Part 1 of Schedule 6 and a Buyer or any member of the Buyer's Group is entitled to recover or subsequently recovers (whether by payment, discount, credit, relief, set-off or otherwise) from a third party a sum which indemnifies or compensates the Buyer or any member of the Buyer's Group (in whole or in part) in respect of the loss or liability which is the subject matter of the Warranty Claim, Tax Covenant Claim or Reorganisation Indemnity Claim, the Buyer shall take all reasonable steps to enforce such recovery and shall, or shall procure that the relevant member of the Buyer's Group shall, pay to the Sellers as soon as practicable after receipt an amount equal to the lesser of:
(a) any sum recovered from the third party; and
(b) the amount previously paid by the relevant Seller(s) to the Buyer,
in each case, less all costs and expenses actually and properly incurred by the Buyer or the relevant Group Company in recovering such sum and any and all Taxation payable by the Buyer or the relevant Group Company (or that would have been payable but for the availability of any Relief) by virtue of its receipt.
10. THIRD PARTY CLAIMS
10.1 If any member of the Buyer's Group becomes aware of any actual or threatened assessment, claim, action or demand by a third party against any member of the Buyer's Group (a 'Third Party Claim') which causes or which, in the Buyer's reasonable opinion, is likely to cause any of the Sellers to be liable in respect of (i) a Warranty Claim or a Tax Covenant Claim in excess of the liability of the one euro (€ 1) cap on liability provided for in paragraph 3.2 of this Part 1 of Schedule 6 or (ii) a Reorganisation Indemnity Claim or (iii) a Separation Claim, the Buyer shall (and shall procure, where relevant, that the relevant member of the Buyer's Group shall):
A44416060
149


(a) promptly give written notice and reasonable details of the Third Party Claim to the Principal Seller together with an assessment of the damages or loss, if known; and
(b) at the written request of the Principal Seller:
(i) take or procure that the Target Companies or relevant member of the Buyer's Group shall take such action as the Principal Seller may reasonably require to avoid, contest, dispute, resist, appeal, compromise or defend the Third Party Claim (including, but without limitation, making counterclaims and exercising all rights of set-off against third parties);
(ii) render or cause to be rendered to the Principal Seller all such reasonable assistance as the Principal Seller may reasonably require (including providing reasonable access to information and to employees of the Target Companies or the relevant Group Company, provided that the Principal Seller shall give reasonable notice of any access to information or employees which may be required and provided further that the provision of such access does not materially interfere with the operation of the business of the Buyer's Group or involve a breach of applicable law) for the purpose of avoiding, contesting, disputing, resisting, appealing, compromising or defending the Third Party Claim; and
(iii) where such Third Party Claim relates to Taxation, procure that no material written communication shall be sent to any Taxation Authority in relation to the subject matter of the Third Party Claim without the prior written approval of the Principal Seller (such approval not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) and the Principal Seller shall be promptly informed of all meetings and telephone calls with such Taxation Authority and entitled to participate in any such meetings and telephone calls,
provided that the Sellers shall indemnify the relevant member of the Buyer's Group against, or provide such other collateral as the Buyer may reasonably require in respect of, all Losses and all reasonably and properly incurred out of pocket costs and expenses which are incurred by them in complying with their respective obligations under paragraphs 10.1(b)(i) to 10.1(b)(iii).
10.2 The rights of the Sellers under paragraph 10.1 of this Part 1 of Schedule 6 shall only apply to a Third Party Claim if the Sellers give notice to the Buyer in writing of the Sellers' intention to exercise their rights within twenty (20) Business Days of the Buyer giving notice of the Third Party Claim.

10.3 The Buyer and the members of the Buyer's Group shall not be required to take any action or refrain from taking any action under this paragraph 10 if the Buyer or member of the Buyer's Group concerned, reasonably considers such action or omission may be materially prejudicial to the Buyer, any member of the Buyer's Group or a Group Company and the Sellers agree not to do anything in the course of exercising their rights under this paragraph 10 that will, or is reasonably likely to, be materially prejudicial to the Buyer or any Group Company and nothing in this this paragraph 10 shall entitle the Sellers or their financial, accounting or legal advisers to have access to any information which relates to legal advice or any other privileged advice or document.
10.4 The Buyer shall, in any event, keep the Principal Seller fully and promptly informed as to the steps which are being taken in connection with any Third Party Claim and consult in good faith with the Principal Seller as to any ways in which any such Third Party Claim can be avoided, contested, disputed, resisted, appealed, compromised or defended.

A44416060

11.6 If a report has been made under paragraph 11.2, then the Sellers or the Buyer may request that the auditors for the time being of the relevant Group Company (at the expense of the person so requesting) review the report in the light of all relevant circumstances, including any facts which have become known only since that report was made, and report whether in their opinion the earlier report remains correct or, in the light of those circumstances, it should be amended.
11.7 If, following a request under paragraph 11.6:
(a) the auditors issue an amendment to the earlier report and the amount of any Saving, Tax Refund or Relief (as the case may be) is revised, then that revised amount shall be substituted for the amount previously reported and, if an adjusting payment is required by virtue of the substitution, then it shall be made by or to the Sellers, as the case may be, as soon as practicable, but in any event within ten (10) Business Days from the date of the amendment of the report; or
(b) the auditors do not agree, within twenty (20) Business Days of being so requested, to provide a report, then such firm of accountants as the Sellers and the Buyer shall agree to appoint (or, if the parties, having negotiated in good faith for a period of twenty (20) Business Days, fail to reach such agreement, such firm of chartered accountants as may be chosen by the president (or equivalent officer) for the time being of the leading professional body for accountants in the relevant jurisdiction) shall provide such report instead, and paragraph 11.2 shall apply as if references to the auditors were references to that other firm of accountants.
12. BUYER'S AWARENESS
The Principal Seller shall not be liable for any Business Warranty Claim to the extent that the Buyer is, at the date of this Agreement, actually aware of any fact, matter, event or circumstance giving rise to the Business Warranty Claim. For this purpose, the actual awareness of the Buyer shall be as defined in clause 9.2.
13. NO DOUBLE RECOVERY
If the same fact, matter, event or circumstance gives rise to more than one Claim, Separation Claim, Reorganisation Indemnity Claim or Tax Covenant Claim or an adjustment to the Consideration, the Buyer shall not be entitled to recover more than once in respect of the same loss.
14. MITIGATION
The Buyer shall (and following Completion shall procure that each member of the Buyer's Group shall) take all reasonable action(s) to mitigate any loss suffered by it or the relevant member(s) of the Group which would, could or might result in a Claim or Reorganisation Indemnity Claim against any of the Sellers.

A44416060
154


(b) any Separation Claim must be given to the Indemnified Party on or before the date which is:
(i) twelve (12) calendar months (other than Separation Claims in respect of Taxation); or
(ii) six (6) years (in the case of Separation Claims in respect of Taxation),
from (and including) the later of the date (A) on which the relevant fact, matter, event or circumstance giving rise to the Indemnified Party's right to bring a Separation Claim arose (regardless of whether the Indemnified Party has, before that date, become actually aware of such fact, matter, event or circumstance) and (B) which is eighteen (18) months following the Completion Date.
2.2 The Notice of a Separation Claim referred to in paragraph 2.1 above shall give (to the extent they are then available to the relevant Indemnified Party) specific details of the nature of the Separation Claim, the circumstances giving rise to it and the Indemnified Party's bona fide estimate of any alleged loss.
2.3 Any Separation Claim shall be deemed to be withdrawn (if it has not been previously satisfied, settled or withdrawn) (and no new Separation Claim may be made in respect of the facts giving rise to such withdrawn Separation Claim) unless legal proceedings in respect thereof have been commenced within six (6) calendar months of the giving of Notice of the Separation Claim and for this purpose such legal proceedings shall not be deemed to have commenced unless both issued and validly served against the Indemnifying Party; provided that, (a) in the case of a contingent liability, the six (6) calendar month period shall commence on the date the relevant contingent liability becomes an actual liability and is due and payable, and (b) in the case where paragraph 9 of this Schedule applies, the six (6) calendar month period shall commence on the date that the Buyer notifies the relevant Seller(s) that all reasonable steps have been taken to enforce recovery against the relevant third party, such notification having been made promptly upon the Buyer having taken all reasonable steps.
3. MAXIMUM LIABILITY
3.1 Subject to paragraph 3.2 below:
(a) the maximum aggregate liability of the Buyer; and
(b) the maximum aggregate liability of the Sellers jointly,
in respect of all Separation Claims (but excluding any liability under paragraph 3.2 below) shall not exceed, in each case, an amount equal to the aggregate Sale Proceeds received by the Sellers. For the avoidance of doubt, the maximum aggregate liability of the Sellers under this paragraph shall be in addition to any aggregate limitation on the liability of the Sellers under paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 6.
3.2 The maximum aggregate liability of the Indemnifying Party in respect of any and all Pass-Through Liabilities shall not exceed the maximum aggregate liability of the relevant party under the applicable contract under which such Pass-Through Liabilities arise.
4. THRESHOLD AND DE MINIMIS
4.1 An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any Separation Claim unless the aggregate amount of its liability for such Separation Claim (excluding Pass-Through Liabilities), as the case may be, when taken together with the aggregate amount of its liability for all other Separation Claims (excluding Pass-Through Liabilities), exceeds €2,000,000 (the 'SeparationThreshold') in which event the Indemnifying Party shall, subject to the other
A44416060
155


limitations contained in this Part 2 of Schedule 6, be liable for the whole amount of all such Separation Claim and not merely the amount by which they exceed the Separation Threshold.
4.2 The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any Separation Claim (excluding Pass-Through Liabilities) if the amount of the liability in respect of that Separation Claim (excluding Pass-Through Liabilities) does not exceed €250,000 (a 'Separation De Minimis Claim') and no such Separation De Minimis Claim shall count towards the Separation Threshold.
4.3 For the purposes of calculating a Separation Claim counting towards the Separation Threshold and/or any Separation De Minimis Claim:
(a) there shall be excluded from any Separation Claim the amount of any costs, expenses and other liabilities (together with any irrecoverable VAT thereon) incurred or to be incurred by the Indemnified Party and any member of the Indemnified Party's Group in connection with the making of any such Separation Claim; and
(b) where a Separation Claim relates to more than one event, circumstance, act or omission which event, circumstance, act or omission would separately give rise to a Separation Claim, such claim shall be treated as a separate Separation Claim in respect of each such event, circumstance, act or omission.
4.4 This paragraph 4 shall not apply in respect of Separation Claims under Schedule 18 (Wrong Pockets) or in respect of any Pass-Through Liabilities.
5. REORGANISATION IMPLEMENTATION
An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable under this Schedule 6 for any Separation Claim to the extent that the liability which is the subject of such Separation Claim arises as a result of any act, transaction or omission which has been specifically requested by the Indemnified Party to effect the Reorganisation or pursuant to any right of such Indemnified Party in the Separation Schedules.
6. REMEDIABLE MATTERS
An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any Separation Claim to the extent that the fact, matter, event or circumstance giving rise to such Separation Claim is remediable and is remedied by, and at the expense of, the relevant Indemnifying Party within thirty (30) days of the date on which Notice of such Separation Claim is received by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to paragraph 2 of this Part 2 of Schedule 6, and the Indemnified Party agrees to use all reasonable endeavours to assist, and to procure the assistance of, relevant members of the Indemnified Party's Group in remedying such breach (in each case at the Indemnifying Party's cost).
7. CONTINGENT LIABILITIES
An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any Separation Claim which arises by reason of a liability which, at the time when Notice of the Separation Claim is given to the Indemnifying Party pursuant to paragraph 2 of this Part 2 of Schedule 6, is contingent only or is otherwise not capable of being quantified and the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable to make any payment in respect of such Separation Claim unless and until the liability becomes an actual liability or (as the case may be) becomes capable of being quantified, and in the case of a Separation Claim in respect of Tax it becomes due and payable, and the due date for payment shall mean the last day on which that Tax may, by law, be paid without incurring any penalty, fine, surcharge, interest, charges, costs or other similar imposition (after taking into account any postponement of the date that was obtained for the payment of that Tax). This paragraph 7 is without prejudice to the Buyer's right to give notice of the Separation Claim in accordance with paragraph 2 of Part 2 of Schedule 6.
A44416060
156


8. INSURANCE
8.1 If, in respect of any Separation Claim, the Indemnified Party or any member of its Group is insured against any loss, damage or liability which is the basis of such Separation Claim under the terms of any insurance policy, the Indemnified Party shall or shall procure that the insured company makes a claim against the insurers under such policy and takes reasonable steps to pursue the claim in good faith (but the foregoing shall not restrict the Indemnified Party's ability to pursue its Separation Claim against the Indemnifying Party).
9. RECOVERY FROM THIRD PARTIES
9.1 If, in respect of any Separation Claim, an Indemnified Party or any member of the Indemnified Party's Group recovers or is entitled to recover (whether by payment, discount, credit, relief, set-off or otherwise) from a third party a sum which indemnifies or compensates the Indemnified Party or any member of the Indemnified Party's Group (in whole or in part) in respect of the loss or liability which is the subject matter of the Separation Claim, the Indemnified Party shall take all reasonable steps to enforce the recovery against the third party and any actual recovery shall reduce or satisfy, as the case may be, such claim to the extent of such recovery (but the foregoing shall not restrict the Indemnified Party's ability to pursue its Separation Claim against the Indemnifying Party).
9.2 If the Indemnified Party has paid an amount in discharge of any Separation Claim and the Indemnified Party or any member of the Indemnified Party's Group is entitled to recover or subsequently recovers (whether by payment, discount, credit, relief, set-off or otherwise) from a third party a sum which indemnifies or compensates the Indemnified Party or any member of the Indemnified Party's Group (in whole or in part) in respect of the loss or liability which is the subject matter of the Separation Claim, the Buyer shall take all reasonable steps to enforce such recovery and shall, or shall procure that the relevant member of the Indemnified Party's Group shall, pay to the Indemnifying Party as soon as practicable after receipt an amount equal to the lesser of:
(a) any sum recovered from the third party; and
(b) the amount previously paid by the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Party,
in each case, less all costs and expenses actually and properly incurred by the Indemnified Party or the relevant member of the Indemnified Party's Group in recovering such sum and any and all Taxation arising on the Indemnified Party or the relevant member of the Indemnified Party's Group by virtue of its receipt.
10. ACTS OF INDEMNIFIED PARTY
An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any Separation Claim the extent that such claim is wholly or partly attributable to:
(a) any voluntary act, omission, transaction or arrangement carried out by the Indemnified Party or on its behalf; or
(b) any admission of liability made after the Completion by the Indemnified Party that is not consented to by the Indemnifying Party.
11. NO DOUBLE RECOVERY
If the same fact, matter, event or circumstance gives rise to more than one Separation Claim, any other claim under this Agreement or an adjustment to the Consideration, the Indemnified Party shall not be entitled to recover more than once in respect of the same loss.
12. NO LIABILITY FOR LOSS OTHERWISE COMPENSATED FOR
A44416060
157


An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any Separation Claim the extent that the subject of the claim has been or is made good or is otherwise compensated for (whether under any other provision of this Agreement or otherwise) without cost to the Indemnified Party.
13. MITIGATION
An Indemnified Party shall (and shall procure that each member of the Indemnified Party's Group shall) take all reasonable action(s) to mitigate any loss suffered by it or the relevant member(s) of the Indemnified Party's Group which would, could or might result in a Separation Claim against an Indemnifying Party.
14. SEPARATION LIABILITIES IN RESPECT OF TAXATION
14.1 An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any Separation Claim in respect of Tax to the extent that:
(a) specific provision or reserve in respect of the liability was made in the Completion Statements or such Tax Liability was otherwise taken into account as a liability (including in reducing the value of an asset) in the preparation of the Completion Statements (excluding any provision or reserve made in respect of deferred Tax);
(b) the liability arises or is increased as a result of:
(i) any change in Tax legislation made after Completion; or
(ii) a change or withdrawal after Completion of any previously published practice or concession of any Taxation Authority, in each case announced and coming into force after Completion with retrospective effect;
(c) the liability is interest and/or penalties arising solely by reason of a failure or delay on the part of the Indemnified Party or any member of the Indemnified Party's Group in paying to the relevant Taxation Authority any payment made under this Agreement;
(d) the liability results from or is increased by a change on or after Completion in the accounting reference date of the Indemnified Party;
(e) the liability has been paid or otherwise settled in full on or before Completion;
(f) the liability has been made good by insurers or otherwise compensated for without cost to the Indemnified Party or its group.

5.1 For the purposes of this Schedule 11, it is acknowledged and agreed that, subject to paragraph 5.2 below, any obligation on the Sellers' Group with respect to procuring Contract Authorisation from any counterparty shall be limited to establishing a course of conduct that will give rise to the inference that the Contract Authorisation of the relevant counterparty/ies has occurred by conduct, ensuring that, from the intended date of transfer, all communications and further engagement with the relevant counterparty/ies are made only by the whom the contract is intended to be transferred. For this purpose, the parties agree that Contract Authorisation will be deemed not to have been obtained if a relevant counterparty has notified the relevant member of the Sellers' Group that such counterparty rejects, disputes or wishes to terminate, waive or extend or not complete a transfer, arrangement or agreement under this Schedule 11. In such case, the Sellers shall promptly notify the Separation Committee, which shall consider the best course of action in response.
5.2 Paragraph 5.1 above shall not apply in respect of any Key Contract Instead, any obligation on the Sellers' Group with respect to procuring Contract Authorisation from any counterparty to a Key Contract shall be construed as an obligation to seek express consent, approval, waiver or other permission, in each case in writing, from the relevant counterparty/ies ('Express Contract Authorisation') to:
A44416060
186


(a) the relevant arrangement to be procured under paragraph 1.1(a) above (in the case of a Key Contract that is a Shared RemainCo Contract), or under paragraph 3.1(a) above (in the case of a Key Contract that is a Shared InfraCo Contract); or
(b) the transfer of the benefit and burden of each Key Contract to the designated transferee (as determined in accordance with this Schedule 11) in the case of a Key Contract that is a Transferring InfraCo Contract or a Transferring RemainCo Contract,
and it shall not be sufficient (and the Sellers' obligations under paragraphs 1 to 4 (inclusive) of this Schedule 11 shall not be satisfied) in respect of a contract to which this paragraph applies unless such Express Contract Authorisation for such contract has been obtained in accordance with this paragraph. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it shall not be necessary to obtain Express Contract Authorisation in respect of any Key Contract where such Key Contract expressly permits the relevant agreement, arrangement, assignment or transfer to be effected pursuant to this Schedule 11 without Express Contract Authorisation.

the Sellers shall promptly notify the Separation Committee who shall instruct the Sellers as to the course of action to be taken.

197


defraud the debtors' creditors, or a transaction entered into while the debtor was insolvent for less than reasonably equivalent value;

(ii) in respect of which there are significant restrictions under applicable law which prevent or restrict the relevant Group Company from spending, distributing, loaning or receiving them.
