19 US-DOCS\85889051.6 notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser may assign its rights and/or delegate its obligations under this Agreement to an Affiliate, to any Person in a transaction in which Purchaser also assigns all of its right, title and interest in all or substantially all of its assets to the same party contemporaneous with the assignment of this Agreement, or to a successor, whether by way of merger, sale of stock or otherwise, without the Company’s prior written consent.

SECTION 7.04. Indemnification. (a) The Company hereby indemnifies and holds Purchaser and its Affiliates and any of their respective partners, directors, managers, members, officers, employees and agents (each, a “Purchaser Indemnified Party”) harmless from and against any and all Losses incurred or suffered by any Purchaser Indemnified Party arising out of any breach of any representation or warranty made by the Company in this Agreement. (b) Purchaser hereby indemnifies and holds the Company, its Affiliates and any of their respective partners, directors, managers, officers, employees and agents (each, a “Company Indemnified Party”) harmless from and against any and all Losses incurred or suffered by a Company Indemnified Party arising out of any breach of any representation or warranty made by Purchaser in this Agreement. (c) If any claim, demand, action or proceeding (including any investigation by any Governmental Authority) shall be brought or alleged against an indemnified party in respect of which indemnity is to be sought against an indemnifying party pursuant to the preceding paragraphs, the indemnified party shall, promptly after receipt of notice of the commencement of any such claim, demand, action or proceeding, notify the indemnifying party in writing of the commencement of such claim, demand, action or proceeding, enclosing a copy of all papers served, if any; provided, that the omission to so notify such indemnifying party will not relieve the indemnifying party from any liability that it may have to any indemnified party under the foregoing provisions of this Section 7.04 unless, and only to the extent that, such omission results in the forfeiture of, or has a material adverse effect on the exercise or prosecution of, substantive rights or defenses by the indemnifying party. In case any such action is brought against an indemnified party and it notifies the indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate therein and, to the extent that it may wish, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly notified, to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party (who shall not, except with the consent of the indemnified party, be counsel to the indemnifying party), and after notice from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to assume the defense thereof, the indemnifying party will not be liable to such indemnified party under this Section 7.04 for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by such indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation. In any such proceeding, an indemnified party shall have the right to retain its own counsel, but the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such indemnified party unless the indemnifying party and the indemnified party shall


 
20 US-DOCS\85889051.6 have mutually agreed to the retention of such counsel. It is agreed that the indemnifying party shall not, in connection with any proceeding or related proceedings in the same jurisdiction, be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses of more than one separate law firm (in addition to local counsel where necessary) for all such indemnified parties. The indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent, but if settled with such consent or if there be a final judgment for the plaintiff, the indemnifying party agrees to indemnify the indemnified party from and against any loss or liability by reason of such settlement or judgment. No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any indemnified party is or could have been a party and indemnity could have been sought hereunder by such indemnified party, unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of such indemnified party from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding. (d) Purchaser’s sole remedy shall be to recover any monetary damages associated with a breach of a representation or warranty made by the Company in this Agreement, subject to the other terms and provisions contained in this Agreement.
