Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
Purchase and Sale Agreement with McGuyer Homebuilders, Inc., et al.
 
On September 7, 2021, concluding an inspection period under a purchase and sale agreement, Dream Finders Homes, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), through its subsidiary Dream Finders Holdings LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“DFH LLC”), provided notice of its election to proceed with the acquisition transaction described below, rendering its deposits non-refundable, subject to certain termination rights and closing conditions.
 
DFH LLC entered into such Purchase and Sale Agreement, as amended by that certain First Amendment to Purchase and Sale Agreement, dated August 31, 2021, and that certain Second Amendment to Purchase and Sale Agreement, dated September 7, 2021 (collectively, the “Purchase Agreement”), on June 17, 2021, with MHI Partnership, Ltd., a Texas limited partnership, MHI Models, Ltd., a Texas limited partnership, McGuyer Homebuilders, Inc., a Texas corporation, FMR IP, LLC, a Texas limited liability company, HomeCo Purchasing Company, Ltd., a Texas limited partnership, 2019 Sonoma, LLC, a Texas limited liability company (collectively, “Sellers”), Frank B. McGuyer (“Mr. McGuyer”) and McGuyer Interests, Ltd., a Texas limited partnership (“McGuyer Interests”).  On September 7, 2021, DFH LLC provided a notice to Sellers expressly stating DFH LLC’s election to proceed with the transaction, and, effective at the time of providing such notice, DFH LLC is no longer entitled to the return of the $3 million of deposits it has deposited with the title company, subject to certain termination rights and closing conditions.
 
Under the Purchase Agreement, DFH Coventry, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“DFH Coventry”), as assignee of the rights of DFH LLC, agreed to acquire certain assets, rights and properties, and assume certain liabilities, comprising the following businesses of Sellers (the “MHI Acquisition”): (i) single-family residential home-building; (ii) owning model homes; (iii) acquisition, ownership and licensing of intellectual property (including architectural plans); (iv) purchasing and reselling homebuilding supplies; (v) development, construction and sale of condominium units in Austin, Texas; (vi) mortgage origination through a mortgage company; and (vii) title insurance, escrow and closing services through a title company (collectively, the “Business”); for a purchase price equal to the sum of: (A) the aggregate book value of the purchased assets (excluding amounts attributable to goodwill and other intangibles, if any, and adjusted as necessary to comply with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America) less the amount of the assumed liabilities; plus (B) $50 million.  The estimated purchase price for the MHI Acquisition is approximately $475 million (inclusive of the approximately $40 million for the purchase of model homes in a subsequent closing, as described below), subject to further calculation at the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement (the “Closing”) and customary post-closing adjustments based on the closing date net asset value of the purchased assets.
 
Under the Purchase Agreement, DFH LLC is required to pay MHI Partnership, Ltd., a Texas limited partnership (“MHI Partnership”), additional consideration for up to five periods, the last of which ends 48 months after the Closing. Each payment for each such period will be calculated in accordance with Section 2.8 of the Purchase Agreement and is contingent on satisfaction of certain financial performance targets by DFH Coventry. The amount of such contingent consideration payable for each one of such five periods is 25% of pre-tax net income, subject to certain minimum pre-tax income hurdles and thresholds and certain overhead expenses.
 

The Purchase Agreement includes customary representations and warranties, as well as certain covenants, including, among other things, that: (i) Sellers will operate the Business in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practice, (ii) each party will use reasonable best efforts to obtain required regulatory approvals, and (iii) Sellers are bound by certain non-solicitation, non-competition and exclusivity covenants. The MHI Acquisition is anticipated to close in the fourth quarter of calendar year 2021.
 
The Closing is subject to customary conditions, including, among other things, the accuracy of representations and warranties, material performance of covenants, obtaining certain third party consents, and no occurrence of a material adverse effect. The Purchase Agreement contains indemnification rights for each of DFH LLC and Sellers for breaches of representations, warranties, and covenants, as well as certain other matters, subject to customary deductibles, caps, and other limitations.
 
The Purchase Agreement provides termination rights for DFH LLC under certain circumstances, including, subject to certain conditions, an uncured material breach by any Seller or if any of the conditions precedent to DFH LLC’s obligation to proceed with the Closing have not been satisfied or if satisfaction of such a condition is or becomes impossible and DFH LLC has not waived such condition(s) on or before December 31, 2021.
 
The Purchase Agreement contemplates the execution of certain ancillary agreements between DFH LLC and Sellers (or their respective affiliates), including, among others, a Land Purchase Option Agreement, pursuant to which DFH Coventry has the option until twenty-four months after the Closing to purchase from Sellers any or all of the specific parcels of land to be specified in the Land Purchase Option Agreement.
 
Under the Purchase Agreement, DFH Coventry will acquire certain model homes (the “Model Homes”) owned by MHI Models, Ltd., a Texas limited partnership (“MHI Models”), in a subsequent closing on or before December 17, 2021, for an estimated purchase price of approximately $40 million, in aggregate. At the time of such subsequent closing, DFH LLC will reimburse MHI Models for taxes, homeowner association dues, and assessments and similar costs incurred by Sellers during the interim period from the Closing to the date of such subsequent closing. At the Closing, DFH LLC will execute a Lease Assumption Agreement assuming all of MHI Partnership’s obligations pursuant to the Master Lease Agreement between MHI Models and MHI Partnership for the period from the Closing until DFH Coventry’s acquisition of the Model Homes.
 
The above description of the Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Purchase Agreement.  A copy of the Purchase and Sale Agreement, the First Amendment to Purchase and Sale Agreement and the Second Amendment to Purchase and Sale Agreement are attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 2.1, Exhibit 2.2 and Exhibit 2.3, respectively, and each such Exhibit is incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.  The Purchase Agreement governs the contractual rights between the parties in relation to the MHI Acquisition. The Purchase and Sale Agreement, the First Amendment to Purchase and Sale Agreement, and the Second Amendment to Purchase and Sale Agreement have been filed as exhibits to this Current Report on Form 8-K to provide investors with information regarding the terms of the MHI Acquisition and are not intended to modify or supplement any factual disclosures about the Company in its public reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
 
2

The representations, warranties, and covenants contained in the Purchase Agreement have been made solely for the purposes of the Purchase Agreement and as of specific dates; were solely for the benefit of the parties to the Purchase Agreement; are not intended as statements of fact to be relied upon by the Company’s or any party’s stockholders or other security holders, but rather as a way of allocating the risk between the parties in the event the statements therein prove to be inaccurate; have been modified or qualified by certain confidential disclosures that were made between the parties in connection with the negotiation of the Purchase Agreement, which disclosures are not reflected in the Purchase Agreement itself; may no longer be true as of a given date; and may apply standards of materiality in a way that is different from what may be viewed as material by stockholders or other security holders. Except as specifically set forth in the Purchase Agreement, stockholders and other security holders are not third-party beneficiaries under the Purchase Agreement and should not rely on the representations, warranties, and covenants or any descriptions thereof as characterizations of any actual state of facts or of the condition of the Company or its subsidiaries, including DFH LLC and DFH Coventry. Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations and warranties may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in the Company’s public disclosures.
 
Amendment to Credit Agreement
 
On September 8, 2021, the Company entered into a First Amendment and Commitment Increase Agreement (the “Amendment”) to its Credit Agreement, dated as of January 25, 2021 (the “Credit Agreement”).  The Credit Agreement, providing for a senior unsecured revolving credit facility, is with a syndicate of lenders identified in the Credit Agreement, and Bank of America, N.A. acts as administrative agent.
 
The Company exercised its right, and the Amendment provides, for an increase in the aggregate commitments under the Credit Agreement by $300 million to $750 million, and three lenders were added as additional lenders under the Credit Agreement.  As amended by the Amendment, the Credit Agreement includes provisions for any existing lender to, at the Company’s request, increase its revolving commitment under the Credit Agreement, add new revolving loan tranches under the Credit Agreement or add new term loan tranches under the Credit Agreement, in all cases not to exceed an aggregate of $1.05 billion.
 
In addition, the Amendment clarified and modified certain definitions and covenants as more fully set forth therein, including modifications of certain financial covenants to facilitate the consummation of the MHI Acquisition.
 
Certain of the Company’s subsidiaries will guarantee the Company’s obligations under the Credit Agreement.  The Credit Agreement will mature on January 25, 2024, unless the Company requests, and the requisite lenders agree, to extend it pursuant to its terms.
 
3

A copy of the Credit Agreement was filed by the Company as Exhibit 10.1 to its Current Report on Form 8-K on January 25, 2021. The foregoing description of the Amendment is only a summary, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amendment which is included as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference into this Item 1.01.
 
Subscription Agreement and Certificate of Designations for Series A Convertible Preferred Stock
 
On September 8, 2021, the Company entered into a Subscription Agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with certain funds and accounts managed and/or advised by subsidiaries of BlackRock, Inc. (collectively, the “Purchasers”). Pursuant to the Subscription Agreement, the Company agreed to sell to the Purchasers 150,000 shares of newly-created Series A Convertible Preferred Stock with an initial liquidation preference of $1,000 per share and a par value $0.01 per share (the “Convertible Preferred Stock”), for an aggregate purchase price of $150 million. The closing of the purchase and sale of the Convertible Preferred Stock is conditioned upon the simultaneous closing of the MHI Acquisition described above.  The Company will use the proceeds from the sale of the Convertible Preferred Stock to fund the MHI Acquisition and for general corporate purposes.  The Subscription Agreement contains customary representations, warranties and covenants of the Company and the Purchasers.

Pursuant to the Certificate of Designations, the Convertible Preferred Stock will rank senior to the Company’s Class A and B common stock with respect to dividends and distributions on liquidation, winding-up and dissolution. Upon a liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, each share of Convertible Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive the initial liquidation preference of $1,000 per share, subject to adjustment, plus all accrued and unpaid dividends thereon.  In addition, the Convertible Preferred Stock will have the following terms:


Cumulative Dividends: The Convertible Preferred Stock will accumulate cumulative dividends at a rate per annum equal to 9.00% payable quarterly in arrears.


Duration: The Convertible Preferred Stock will be perpetual with call and conversion rights. The Convertible Preferred Stock will not be convertible by the Purchasers in the first five years following issuance, with the exception of the acceleration of the Conversion Right (as defined below) upon breach of the protective covenants (described below). The Company can call the outstanding Convertible Preferred Stock at any time for one-hundred and two percent (102%) of its liquidation preference during the fourth year following its issuance and for one-hundred and one percent (101%) of its liquidation preference during the fifth year following its issuance (in each case, for the avoidance of doubt, plus accrued but unpaid dividends, if any). Subsequent to the fifth anniversary of its issuance, a Purchaser can convert the Convertible Preferred Stock into Class A common stock of the Company (the “Conversion Right”). The conversion price will be based on the average of the trailing 90 days’ closing price of Class A common stock of the Company, less 20% of the average and subject to a floor conversion price of $4.00 (the “Conversion Discount”).

4


Protective Covenants: The protective covenants of the Convertible Preferred Stock require the Company to maintain compliance with all covenants related to (i) the Credit Agreement, as may be further amended from time to time; provided that any amendment, restatement, modification or waiver of the Credit Agreement that would adversely and materially affect the rights of the Purchasers will require the written consent of holders of a majority of the then-outstanding shares of Convertible Preferred Stock; and (ii) any agreement between the Company and any Purchaser (the covenants referred to in clauses (i) and (ii), collectively, the “Protective Covenants”). Non-compliance beyond any applicable cure period with the Protective Covenants (in the case of the Protective Covenants related to the Credit Agreement) will accelerate the Conversion Right, and in the event of such acceleration that occurs before the fifth anniversary following the issuance of the Convertible Preferred Stock, the “Conversion Discount” shall be increased from 20% to 25%.


Voting Rights.  Except as may be expressly required by Delaware law, the shares of Convertible Preferred Stock have no voting rights.


Redemption in a Change of Control: The Convertible Preferred Stock will be redeemed, contingent upon and concurrently with the consummation of a change of control of the Company.   Shares of Convertible Preferred Stock will be redeemed in a change of control of the Company at a price, in cash, equal to the liquidation preference, subject to adjustment, plus all accumulated and unpaid dividends, plus, if the change of control occurs before the fourth anniversary of the date of issuance of the Convertible Preferred Stock, a premium equal to the dividends that would have accumulated on such share of Convertible Preferred Stock from and after the change of control redemption date and through the fourth anniversary of the issuance of the Convertible Preferred Stock.

Pursuant to the terms of the Certificate of Designations, unless and until approval of the Company’s stockholders is obtained as contemplated by Nasdaq listing rules, no shares of Class A common stock will be issued or delivered upon conversion of any Convertible Preferred Stock to the extent that such issuance would (i) result in the holder beneficially owning in excess of 19.99% of the outstanding Class A common stock as of the date of the Certificate of Designations or (ii) exceed 19.99% of the outstanding shares of Class A and Class B common stock combined as of the date of the Certificate of Designations.

In addition, in connection with the entry into the Subscription Agreement, the Company agreed as follows:

Board Observer

For so long as the Purchasers hold at least 25% of the outstanding shares of Convertible Preferred Stock, the Purchasers shall have the right to designate one individual to be present in a non-voting, non-fiduciary observer capacity (the “Board Observer”) at all meetings of the Company’s Board of Directors, including any telephonic or electronic meetings.  If, following designation as the Board Observer, the Board Observer resigns, is removed, or is otherwise unable to serve for any reason, then, the Purchasers shall be entitled to designate a replacement Board Observer.

5

Information Rights

For so long as any Purchaser holds any of the outstanding shares of Convertible Preferred Stock, the Purchasers will receive certain information rights under the Subscription Agreement, including the right to receive financial statements of the Company.

Commitment Fee

In connection with the closing under the Subscription Agreement, the Company will pay a commitment fee to the Purchasers equal to 1% of the aggregate purchase price for the Convertible Preferred Stock.

Registration Rights Agreement

As part of the closing of the sale of the Convertible Preferred Stock, the Company and the Purchasers agreed to enter into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) pursuant to which, among other things, the Company will grant the Purchasers certain registration rights. Under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company will be required to register the Convertible Preferred Stock owned by the Purchasers and the shares of Class A common stock issuable upon conversion of such shares equal to 19.99% of the outstanding shares of Class A common stock for resale within the earlier of (i) three business days after the filing of the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 and (ii) six months after the closing.  If the Company fails to comply with its registration requirements under the Registration Rights Agreement, the Purchasers, in addition to any regular dividends, will be entitled to an additional 2% per annum dividend for an additional quarter period on the Convertible Preferred Stock if the breach is cured within 30 days and for each additional 30 day period in which the Company fails to cure such breach, each Purchaser will be entitled to an additional 2% per annum for an additional quarter period until cured.  In addition, the Purchaser has rights to demand the registration of the Convertible Preferred Stock and the shares of Class A common stock in certain instances.

The foregoing descriptions of the transactions contemplated by the Subscription Agreement, Registration Rights Agreement and the terms of the Convertible Preferred Stock pursuant to the Certificate of Designations do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by, the full text of such agreements, which are included as Exhibit 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference into this Item 1.01.

2.5          Purchase Price.
 
2.5.1          Purchase Price.  The purchase price to be paid by Buyer for the Purchased Assets (the "Purchase Price"), shall be the sum of:
 
(A)        the aggregate book value of the Purchased Assets (excluding amounts attributable to goodwill and other intangibles, if any, and adjusted as necessary to comply with GAAP) less the amount of the Assumed Liabilities (the "Net Asset Value"); notwithstanding the foregoing, the Parties agree that the value to be paid for the equity interest in BUILDER HOMESITE, INC. shall be mutually determined by the parties prior to the expiration of the Inspection Period and not its book value.
 
(1)          The Net Asset Value will be calculated using generally accepted accounting principles as consistently applied by the Sellers ("GAAP") and in a manner consistent with the Net Asset Value calculation set forth on Schedule 2.5.1(A)(1) utilized in calculating the target purchase price (the "Target Purchase Price Schedule").
 
(2)           Based on the NAV Schedule attached as Schedule 2.1.1: (a) the aggregate book value of the Purchased Assets is ($565,083,512), (b) the Assumed Liabilities are $71,667,592, and (c) result in a Net Asset Value of $493,415,920.
 
(3)          The aggregate book values of the Purchased Assets, the amount of the Assumed Liabilities, the Net Asset Value and the Purchase Price will calculated at Closing (see Section 2.5.2 below) and adjusted pursuant to Section 2.6 below (i.e., the True‑Up);
 
(4)            For the avoidance of doubt, any Subsequent Parcels (see Section 3.8 below) shall be excluded from the Net Asset Value.
 
(B)          plus an amount equal to Fifty Million Dollars ($50,000,000.00) (the "Premium"). The Premium shall be a fixed value and shall not be adjusted pursuant to Section 2.6 below.
 
(C)           plus the MHI Entities Purchase Price.
 
(D)        Based on the NAV Schedule attached as Schedule 2.1.1, the target Purchase Price (excluding the MHU Entities Purchase Price) would be $543,415,920, including the Net Asset Value ($493,415,920), and Premium ($50,000,000).

2.5.2         Closing Purchase Price.  On or before seven (7) days prior to Closing, Sellers shall submit to Buyer updated versions of all applicable Schedules using financial information as of

5

TBD, 2021 (the "Closing Adjusted Schedules") calculated using GAAP as consistently applied by the Sellers and in a manner consistent with the Net Asset Value calculation set forth on the Target Purchase Price Schedule. Based on the Closing Adjusted Schedules, Buyer shall prepare and deliver to Sellers , within five (5) days after Buyer's receipt of the Closing Adjusted Schedules, the Closing Schedule of Net Asset Value ("Closing NAV Schedule"), with updated aggregate book values for the Purchased Assets adjusted (up or down, as applicable) to reflect increases or decreases in the amount of the aggregate book value of the Purchased Assets (e.g., the exclusion of any Subsequent Parcels) and updated amounts for the Assumed Liabilities. The Net Asset Value and the Purchase Price shall be calculated based on the Closing NAV Schedule. The Net Asset Value, as calculated based on the Closing NAV Schedule, shall be the "Closing Net Asset Value", and the Purchase Price, as calculated based on the Closing NAV Schedule, shall be the "Closing Purchase Price".
 
2.5.3          Payment of Closing Purchase Price.  On the Closing Date, the Closing Purchase Price shall be paid by Buyer to Sellers as follows:
 
(A)         Buyer shall deposit with the Title Company the amount of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00) of the Closing Purchase Price (the "Indemnity Escrow" and such amount, including any interest or other amounts earned thereon and less any disbursements therefrom in accordance with the Indemnity Escrow Agreement, the "Indemnity Escrow Fund"), which shall be used to indemnify Buyer for any Damages as more fully described in Section 10.2 below and pursuant to the Indemnity Escrow Agreement.
 
(B)          Buyer shall deposit with the Title Company the amount of Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00) of the Closing Purchase Price (the "True-Up Escrow" and such amount, including any interest or other amounts earned thereon and less any disbursements therefrom in accordance with the True-Up Escrow Agreement, the "True-Up Escrow Fund"), which shall be used to indemnify Buyer for any Damages as more fully described in Section 2.6 below and pursuant to the True-Up Escrow Agreement in the form attached as Exhibit R (the “True-Up Escrow Agreement”).
 
(C)        Buyer shall deposit with the Title Company the amount of Three Millions Dollars ($3,000,000.00) of the Closing Purchase Price (the "Warranty Reserve Escrow" and such amount, including any interest or other amounts earned thereon and less any disbursements therefrom in accordance with the Warranty Reserve Escrow Agreement, the "Warranty Reserve Escrow Fund"), which shall be applied or returned to Sellers as provided in the Warranty Service Agreement (see Section 6.8 below) and pursuant to the Warranty Reserve Escrow Agreement in the form attached as Exhibit Q (the “Warranty Reserve Escrow Agreement”).
 
(D)         Buyer shall pay the remainder of the Closing Purchase Price and the amount required to release the mortgage liens on the Real Property ("Closing Cash Payment") to the order of Sellers by wire transfer of immediately available funds, in accordance with written instructions provided by Sellers.

2.6         Post-Closing Purchase Price Adjustment (True‑Up).  On or prior to the sixtieth (60th) day after the Closing Date (the "True‑Up Date"), Sellers shall prepare and deliver to Buyer (a) final versions of all applicable schedules with information that was true and correct as of the Closing Date (the "Final Adjusted Schedules"), (b) the final schedule of Net Asset Value ("Final NAV Schedule"), which shall be prepared in accordance with GAAP, and (c) all records, work papers, schedules and other documents relating related to the preparation of the Final Adjusted Schedules and the Final NAV Schedule and to the determination of the True‑Up ("Final Supporting Information"). The Final NAV Schedule shall set forth the aggregate book values of the Purchased Assets (which shall exclude any Subsequent Parcels and any amounts attributable to goodwill or other intangibles) less the Assumed Liabilities as of the Closing Date (the "Final Net Asset Value"). Sellers shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prepare the Final

6

Adjusted Schedules and Final NAV Schedule in accordance with this Section 2.6. All expenses of Sellers in connection with the preparation of the Final Adjusted Schedules, Final NAV Schedule and Final Net Asset Value shall be borne by Sellers.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, any time and from time to time after the True-Up Date until a period of nine (9) months thereafter, in the event either party determines that the Final Net Asset Value may be modified as a result of actual additional, updated or corrected Final Supporting Information, then the parties shall update the Final NAV Schedule, with the procedures set forth in Section 2.6.1 through Section 2.6.4 herein.  The provisions of this Section 2.6 shall survive Closing.

2.6.1          If Buyer disagrees with the Final NAV Schedule (including the Final Net Asset Value as set forth on the Final NAV Schedule), then within twenty (20) days after Buyer's receipt of the Final Adjusted Schedules, Final NAV Schedule and the Final Supporting Information, Buyer may deliver a notice to Sellers of such disagreement and setting forth Buyer's revision to the Final NAV Schedule and Buyer's calculations of the Final Net Asset Value ("Buyer's Objection Notice"). Any such notice of disagreement shall specify those items or amounts as to which Buyer disagrees.
 
2.6.2          If a Buyer's Objection Notice shall be timely delivered pursuant to Section 2.6.1 above, the Parties shall, during the ten (10) days following such delivery, use Reasonable Efforts to reach agreement on the disputed items or amounts in order to determine, as may be required, the Final NAV Schedule and the amount of the Final Net Asset Value. If, during such period, the Parties are unable to reach such agreement, they shall promptly thereafter engage Ernst & Young or other mutually agreed upon certified public accountant (the "Accounting Referee") promptly to review this Agreement and the disputed items or amounts for the purpose of determining the Final NAV Schedule and calculating the Final Net Asset Value. In making such calculation, the Accounting Referee shall consider only those items or amounts as to which Buyer has disagreed. The Accounting Referee shall deliver to Sellers and Buyer, as promptly as practicable, but in any event within thirty (30) days of being engaged, a report setting forth the Final NAV Schedule and the calculation of the actual Final Net Asset Value in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.6 above. Such report shall be final and binding upon the Parties hereto. The cost of such review and report pursuant to this Section 2.6.2 shall be borne equally by Sellers and Buyer.
 
2.6.3          The final Purchase Price shall be determined as follows (the "True‑Up"):
 
(A)          The "Final Net Asset Value" shall be the Final Net Asset Value as either approved by both Buyer and Sellers or resolved pursuant to Section 2.6.2 above, which shall be calculated in accordance with Section 2.6 above.
 
(B)          The "True-Up Amount" is the difference between the Final Net Asset Value and the Closing Net Asset Value.
 
(C)          If the Final Net Asset Value is less than the Closing Net Asset Value, then the final Purchase Price will equal the Closing Purchase Price less the True‑Up Amount and the True‑Up Amount shall be in favor of Buyer.
 
(D)          If the Final Net Asset Value shown on the Final NAV Schedule is more than the Closing Net Asset Value, then the final Purchase Price will equal the Closing Purchase Price plus the True‑Up Amount and the True‑Up Amount shall be in favor of Sellers.
 
2.6.4        Within five (5) days after the Final NAV Schedule is either approved by both Buyer and Sellers or resolved pursuant to Section 2.6.2 above ("True‑Up Payment Date"):

(A)          If the True‑Up Amount is in favor of Buyer pursuant to Section 2.6.3(C) and the True‑Up Amount exceeds the amount of the True-Up Escrow Fund, then (i) the Title Company shall, following joint written notice delivered by Sellers and Buyer to the Title

7

Company, release to Buyer the True-Up Escrow Fund and (ii)  Sellers and Interest Holders jointly and severally shall pay the excess of the True-Up Amount over the True‑Up Escrow Fund amount to the order of Buyer by wire transfer of immediately available funds, in accordance with written instructions provided by Buyer; 

(B)          If the True‑Up Amount is in favor of Buyer pursuant to Section 2.6.3(C) and the True‑Up Amount is less than or equal to the True-Up Escrow Fund amount, then (i) the Title Company shall, following joint written notice delivered by Sellers and Buyer to the Title Company, release to Buyer the amount of the True-Up Amount from the True-Up Escrow Fund and release the remainder of the True-Up Fund to Sellers; and
 
(C)          If the True‑Up Amount is in favor of Sellers pursuant to Section 2.6.3(D) above, then Buyer shall pay (i) the True-Up Amount to Sellers and (B) the Title Company shall, following joint written notice delivered by Sellers and Buyer to the Title Company, release to Sellers the entire amount of the True-Up Fund.
 
All amounts in the True-Up Escrow Fund shall be released pursuant to the above provisions of this Section 2.6.4. Any modifications to the Final Net Asset Value within the nine (9) month period after the True-Up Date as a result of actual additional, updated or corrected Final Supporting Information shall be paid in cash to the party owed any additional True-Up Amount.
2.7          Allocation of Purchase Prices.  The Parties hereby agree that the Purchase Price will be allocated among the Purchased Assets and Sellers as set forth on Schedule 2.7. Subject to the requirements of any applicable Tax law, all Tax Returns and reports filed by the Parties shall be prepared consistently with such allocation. In the event of any adjustment to the Purchase Price hereunder, the Parties agree to adjust such allocation to reflect such adjustment and to file consistently any Tax Returns and reports required as a result of such adjustment. Each of the Parties agrees to cooperate with the other Party in the preparation and filing of any Tax Returns required under any applicable law.
 
2.8          Earn Out.
 
2.8.1          In addition to the Purchase Price, Buyer shall pay to MHI Partnership the Earn Out. Each Earn Out Payment for each Earn Out Year will be paid, if due hereunder , by Buyer to MHI Partnership as soon as reasonably practicable after each Earn Out Year-end but in no event later than five (5) days after the applicable Earn Out Payment is finally determined pursuant to Section 2.8.3 below.  Each Earn Out Payment shall be made, if due hereunder, so long as the Newco's Pre-Tax Income meets or exceeds the Earn Out Hurdle for the applicable Earn Out Year and such Pre-Tax Income shall be calculated in accordance with GAAP.  In the event an Earn Out Hurdle is not met for any particular Earn Out Year, no Earn Out shall be due for that particular Earn Out Year and Buyer shall retain one hundred percent (100%) of Newco's Pre-Tax Income for that Earn Out Year.  In the event the Earn Out Hurdle is met or exceeded in any particular Earn Out Year, the MHI Partnership shall receive as the Earn Out one hundred percent (100%) of the Pre-Tax Income for that Earn Out Year in excess of the Earn Out Hurdle up to an amount equal to that Earn Out Year's Minimum Pre-Tax Income Budget Threshold.  In the event the Newco's Pre-Tax Income exceeds the Minimum Pre-Tax Income Budget Threshold for an Earn Out Year, Buyer shall receive seventy-five percent (75%) of the Newco's Pre-Tax Income in excess of the Minimum Pre-Tax Income Budget Threshold for such Earn Out Year and MHI Partnership shall receive twenty-five percent (25%) of the Newco's Pre-Tax Income in excess of the Minimum Pre-Tax Income Budget Threshold for such Earn Out Year.  Buyer and MHI Partnership agree that in the event of a recession (defined as a fall in the United States' Gross Domestic Product in two (2) consecutive quarters) that materially adversely affects the housing industry that the Parties shall act in good faith to appropriately adjust downward the Minimum Pre-Tax Income Budget Threshold for purposes of the Earn Out Calculation, consistent with Buyer's management's decisions regarding budgets and projections for Buyer's other divisions.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, at any time after Closing through the time periods set forth in Section 2.6 herein, Buyer shall have the right to set off first, against the True-Up Escrow, then second, against any uncontested and mutually agreed upon Earn out Payment (or Earn Out Payments finally determined by the Accounting Referee), against any uncontested and agreed upon amounts (or amounts finally determined by the Accounting Referee) owed by Seller to Buyer pursuant to Section 2.6.4(B) herein.  In addition, at any time after Closing through the time periods set forth in Section 2.6 herein, Seller shall have the right to set off any amounts that may be owed to Buyer against any amounts now or hereafter owed by Buyer to Seller pursuant to Section 2.6.4(C).

2.8.2          As soon as reasonably practicable after each Earn Out Year-end but in no event later than thirty (30) days after Buyer publishes its final annual audit for each Earn Out Year, Buyer shall prepare and deliver to MHI Partnership a written statement (in each case, an "Earn-Out Calculation Statement") setting forth in reasonable detail its determination of Pre-Tax Income for the applicable period and its calculation of the resulting Earn Out Payment (in each case, an "Earn-out Calculation").
 
2.8.3          MHI Partnership shall have forty-five days after receipt of the Earn-out Calculation Statement for each Earn Out Year (in each case, the "Review Period") to review the Earn-out Calculation Statement and the Earn-out Calculation set forth therein. During the Review Period, MHI Partnership and its accountants shall have the right to inspect Newco's books and records during normal business hours at Newco's offices, upon reasonable prior notice and solely for purposes reasonably related to the determinations of Newco's Pre-Tax Income and the resulting Earn-out Payment. Prior to the expiration of the Review Period, MHI Partnership may object to the Earn-out Calculation set forth in the Earn-out Calculation Statement for the applicable Earn Out Year by delivering a written notice of objection (an "Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice") to Buyer. Any Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice shall specify the items in the applicable Earn-out Calculation disputed by MHI Partnership and shall describe in reasonable detail the basis for such objection, as well as the amount in dispute. If MHI Partnership fails to deliver an Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice to Buyer prior to the expiration of the Review Period, then the Earn-out Calculation set forth in the Earn-out Calculation Statement shall be final and binding on the parties hereto. If MHI Partnership timely delivers an Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice, Buyer and MHI Partnership shall negotiate in good faith to resolve the disputed items and agree upon the resulting amount of Newco's Pre-Tax Income and the Earn-out Payment for the applicable Earn Out Year. If Buyer and MHI Partnership are unable to reach agreement within twenty (20) days after such an Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice has been given, all unresolved disputed items shall be promptly referred to the Accounting Referee. The Accounting Referee shall be directed to render a written report on the unresolved disputed items with respect to the applicable Earn-out Calculation as promptly as practicable, but in no event greater than twenty (20) days after such submission to the Accounting Referee, and to resolve only those unresolved disputed items set forth in the Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice. If unresolved disputed items are submitted to the Accounting Referee, Buyer and MHI Partnership shall each furnish to the Accounting Referee such work papers, schedules and other documents and information relating to the unresolved disputed items as the Accounting Referee may reasonably request. The Accounting Referee shall resolve the disputed items based solely on the applicable definitions and other terms in this Agreement and the presentations by Buyer and MHI Partnership, and not by independent review. The resolution of the dispute and the calculation of Newco's Pre-Tax Income that is the subject of the applicable Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice by the Accounting Referee shall be final and binding on the parties hereto. The fees and expenses of the Accounting Referee shall be borne by MHI Partnership and Buyer in proportion to the amounts by which their respective calculations of Newco's Pre-Tax Income differ from Newco's Pre-Tax Income as finally determined by the Independent Accountant.

2.8.4         Buyer's obligation to pay each of the Earn-Out Payments to MHI Partnership in accordance with this Section 2.8 is an independent obligation of Buyer and is not otherwise conditioned or contingent upon the satisfaction of any conditions precedent to any preceding or subsequent Earn-out Payment and the obligation to pay an Earn-out Payment to MHI Partnership shall not obligate Buyer to pay any preceding or subsequent Earn-out Payment. For the avoidance of doubt and by way of example, if the conditions precedent to the payment of the Earn-out Payment for the first Earn Out Year are not satisfied, but the conditions precedent to the payment of the Earn-out Payment for the second Earn Out Year are satisfied, then Buyer would be obligated to pay such Earn-out Payment for the second Earn Out Year for which the corresponding conditions precedent have been satisfied, and not the Earn-out Payment for the first Earn Out Year.  .
 
2.8.5          At all times during any Earn Out Year, Buyer shall not, through the use of Affiliates or otherwise, (i) take any action with the intent of reducing the Earn Out Payments including diverting any business away from Newco to any other Affiliate of the Buyer with the intent of reducing the Earn Out Payments or (ii) take any action with the primary intent or with the effect of avoiding or seeking to avoid the inclusion of any earnings or revenues relating to Newco in the calculation of Newco's Pre-Tax Income, (iii) allocate overhead or administrative expenses of any other Affiliate of Newco in a manner that materially increases the amount or materially changes the type of overhead and administrative expenses historically incurred by the Business as operated by MHI Partnership and in any event overhead and administrative expenses shall not be greater than one tenth of one percent (0.1%) of Revenue, or (iv) terminate any member of the Executive Team other than for Cause as defined in the applicable employment agreement without the prior consent of Owner.  At all times during any Earn Out Year, Buyer will conduct the Business consistent with past practices of MHI Partnership including using commercially reasonable efforts to not take any action that would reduce the Businesses' historical level of working capital and shall continue to acquire Lots consistent with past practices of the Business.
 
2.9       Deposit.  Subject to a mutually acceptable escrow agreement, Buyer shall deposit One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00) ("Initial Deposit") with the Title Company, within five (5) Business Days after the Effective Date. Within five (5) Business Days after the expiration of the Inspection Period (hereinafter defined) and so long as Buyer has delivered a Notice to Proceed (hereinafter defined), Buyer shall deposit with the Title Company the amount of Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) (the "Additional Deposit" and collectively with the Initial Deposit, the "Deposit").  If the transaction does not close, Title Company shall disburse the Deposit to the party entitled to the Deposit as provided for in this Agreement.  The Deposit shall be applied toward the Closing Cash Payment at Closing.

2.10       Inspection PeriodBuyer shall have a period, commencing on the Effective Date through the date that is seventy-five (75) calendar days thereafter (the "Inspection Period"), to perform, during normal business hours and upon at least three days advance notice to Seller, due diligence with respect to the Purchased Assets (including conducting such tests, studies, surveys, and/or other physical inspections of the Property as Buyer deems necessary or appropriate) and all information relating thereto. Buyer's inspections may encompass such matters as, without limitation, title and survey, environmental conditions, soil conditions, siting, access, traffic patterns, competition, financing, economic feasibility, platting, zoning, leasing status, and matters involving governmental cooperation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such inspection may not include a Phase II study without the prior consent of Seller.  Seller shall be entitled to have a representative present at all times during each such inspection or due diligence visit. All inspection fees, appraisal fees, engineering fees, and other costs and expenses of any kind incurred by Buyer's or Buyer's Representatives relating to such inspection and its other access shall be at the sole expense of Buyer. While conducting any inspection under this Section 2.10, neither Buyer nor any of Buyer's Representatives shall (i) interfere with the business of Seller, except to a de minimis extent, or (ii) damage the Property. Buyer agrees to indemnify and hold Seller and its disclosed or

10

10.2.1   any Breach of any representation or warranty made by any Seller in this Agreement, or in any certificate or document delivered by any Seller pursuant to this Agreement, without giving effect to any materiality, dollar or other threshold in determining the dollar amount of any Damages (and not when determining whether a representation is inaccurate or has been breached);

39

10.3       Indemnification and Payment of Damages by Buyer.  Buyer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Sellers and their Representatives, controlling persons and affiliates (collectively, the "Seller Indemnified Persons"), and shall pay to the Seller Indemnified Persons the amount of any Damages arising, directly or indirectly, from or in connection with:
 
10.3.1   any Breach of any representation or warranty made by Buyer in this Agreement, or in any certificate or document delivered by Buyer pursuant to this Agreement, without giving effect to any materiality, dollar or other threshold;
 
10.3.2   any Breach by Buyer of any covenant or obligation of Buyer in this Agreement or in any Buyer Closing Document;

10.3.5   any Assumed Liability.

10.4        Limitations on Indemnification.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein:
 
10.4.1  The maximum amount payable by the Sellers for Damages pursuant to Section 10.2 above shall not in the aggregate exceed an amount equal to Twenty-Five Million Dollars ($25,000,000) (the "Sellers Cap"); provided however, the Sellers Cap shall not apply to any claims arising under Section 4.8.1 in the event the applicable Seller does not have a valid claim on an owners title insurance policy (or does not have an owners policy) covering applicable Real Property that is assumed by Newco, Sections 10.2.2 as it relates to a Post‑Closing Covenant, Sections 10.2.3, 10.2.4, or 10.2.6 or relating to Fraud (as defined in Section 10.8 below).
 
10.4.2  No amount shall be payable pursuant to Section 10.2.1 (i.e., any Breach of the Sellers' representations and warranties other than a Breach of any representation or warranty in Section 4.8) unless and until the aggregate amount of Damages indemnifiable thereunder exceeds an amount equal to SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS ($750,000.00) (the "Deductible"), in which event Sellers shall be liable for the amount in excess of the Deductible.
 
10.4.3  The maximum amount payable by the Buyer for Damages pursuant to Section 10.3 above shall not in the aggregate exceed an amount equal to One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) (the "Buyers Cap"); provided however, the Buyers Cap shall not apply to any claims arising under Sections 10.3.3, Sections 10.3.4 or 10.3.5 or relating to Fraud.
 
10.5        Procedure for Indemnification.
 
10.5.1  Notice of Third Party Claim.  Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under Sections 10.2 or 10.3 of notice of the commencement of any Proceeding against it by a third party, such indemnified party shall, if a claim is to be made against an indemnifying party under such Section, give notice to the indemnifying party of the commencement of such claim; provided, however, that the failure to provide such notice shall not release the indemnifying party from any of its obligations under such Section, except to the extent that the indemnifying party demonstrates that the defense of such Proceeding has been materially prejudiced by such failure.

10.5.2  Defense by Indemnifying Party.  If any Proceeding referred to in Section 10.5.1 is brought against an indemnified party, and such indemnified party gives notice to the indemnifying

40


party of the commencement of such Proceeding, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate in such Proceeding and, to the extent that the indemnifying party wishes, assume the defense of such Proceeding with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party. After notice from the indemnifying party to the indemnified party of its election to assume the defense of a Proceeding, the indemnifying party will not, as long as it diligently conducts such defense, be liable to the indemnified party under this ARTICLE 10 for any fees of other counsel or any other expenses with respect to the defense of such Proceeding, in each case subsequently incurred by the indemnified party in connection with the defense of such Proceeding, other than reasonable costs of investigation. No Third Party Claim may be settled or compromised (A) by the Indemnified Party without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed or (B) by the Indemnifying Party without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; provided, however, that the Indemnifying Party may settle any Third Party Claim without the consent of the Indemnified Party if such settlement contains an unconditional release by the Third Party of all liability (including any restriction on the Indemnified Party's business, operations or assets) of the Indemnified Party with respect to such Third Party Claim and the Indemnifying Party has agreed in writing that such Third Party Claim is the subject of indemnity under ARTICLE 10.

10.5.3   Defense by Indemnified Party.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an indemnified party determines in good faith that there is a reasonable probability that a Proceeding may adversely affect it or its affiliates, the indemnified party may, by notice to the indemnifying party, assume the exclusive right to defend, compromise or settle such Proceeding, but the indemnifying party will not be bound by any determination of a Proceeding so defended or any compromise or settlement effected without its consent (which may not be unreasonably withheld).
 
10.5.4   Direct Claims.  If any indemnified party should have a claim under Sections 10.2 or 10.3 against any indemnifying party that does not involve a third party claim, the indemnified party shall give notice with reasonable promptness to the indemnifying party, but in no event later than sixty (60) days after becoming aware of such claim; provided, however, that the failure to provide such notice shall not release the indemnifying party from any of its obligations under such Section, except to the extent that the indemnifying party demonstrates that the defense of such Proceeding has been materially prejudiced by such failure. If the indemnifying party notifies the indemnified party that it does not dispute the claim described in the notice or fails to notify the indemnified party within ten (10) Business Days that the indemnifying party disputes the claim, the Damages arising from the claim specified in the notice shall be conclusively deemed a liability of the indemnifying party, and the indemnifying party shall pay the amount of such Damages to the indemnified party on demand following the final determination thereof. If the indemnifying party has timely disputed its liability with respect to such claim, the indemnifying party and indemnified party will proceed in good faith to negotiate a resolution of such dispute, and if not resolved within sixty (60) days, such dispute shall be subject to resolution in accordance with Section 11.111.
 
10.5.5   Indemnity Escrow Fund.
 
(A)     Except for claims pursuant to Section 10.2.5 related to Warranty Claims, any Damages payable to a Buyer Indemnified Persons pursuant to this Article 10 shall be satisfied: (i) from the Indemnity Escrow Fund; and (ii) to the extent the amount of Damages exceeds the amounts available in the Indemnity Escrow Fund, from Sellers, all in accordance with the Indemnity Escrow Agreement.
 
(B)     Pursuant to the Indemnity Escrow Agreement, on the first business day following the one (1) year anniversary of the Closing, the Title Company shall, following written notice delivered by Sellers to the Title Company and Buyer, release to the Sellers from the Indemnity Escrow Fund any remaining amounts of the Indemnity Escrow Fund then held by the

41


Title Company (minus the amount of pending indemnification claims by a Buyer Indemnified Person; provided that in the event that any amount is withheld by the Title Company due to any pending claim, the portion of such amount that is not applied to a pending claim shall be released to Sellers as soon as practicable following resolution of such claim).

10.5.6   Warranty Reserve Escrow Fund.
 
(A)     Any Damages payable to a Buyer Indemnified Persons pursuant Section 10.2.5 related to Warranty Claims shall be satisfied: (i) from the Warranty Reserve Escrow Fund; and (ii) to the extent the amount of Damages exceeds the Warranty Reserve Escrow Fund, from Sellers, all in accordance with the Warranty Service Agreement.
 
(B)     As provided in the Warranty Services Agreement and pursuant to the Warranty Reserve Escrow Agreement, the Title Company shall, on the date 18 months following the Closing Date, pay to Sellers any remaining amounts of the Warranty Reserve Escrow Fund held by Buyer (minus the amount of pending warranty claims; provided that in the event that any amount is withheld due to any pending claim, the portion of such amount that is not applied to a pending claim shall be released to Sellers as soon as practicable following resolution of such claim).

10.6      Consequential Damage Exclusion.  NONE OF THE PARTIES OR ANY OF THEIR AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR INDIRECT DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, DAMAGES BASED ON A MULTIPLE OF EARNINGS OR OTHERWISE, DAMAGES FOR DIMINUTION IN VALUE OR OTHER BUSINESS INTERRUPTION DAMAGES, PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT THIS SECTION 10.6 SHALL NOT APPLY TO EXCLUDE OR LIMIT ANY OBLIGATION OF ANY PARTY TO INDEMNIFY ANY OTHER PERSON FOR DAMAGES PAYABLE TO THIRD PARTIES IN CONNECTION WITH THIRD PARTY CLAIMS.

10.7       Reduction for Third-Party Proceeds.  The amount which an indemnifying party is required to pay to, for, or on behalf of an indemnified party pursuant to this ARTICLE 10 shall be reduced (including retroactively) by any proceeds recovered by or on behalf of the indemnified party from a third party for the related Damages, including insurance proceeds. If the indemnified party shall have received, or if the indemnifying party shall have paid on its behalf, an indemnity payment in respect of any Damages and shall subsequently receive, directly or indirectly, insurance proceeds or other third party proceeds (which duplicate in whole or in part, such indemnity payment) in respect of such Damages, then the indemnified party shall promptly pay to the indemnifying party the amount of such insurance or other third party proceeds to the extent of such duplication, or, if less, the amount of such indemnity payment. Each Party shall act in good faith and make Reasonable Efforts to mitigate any Damages it may suffer, including, without limitation, diligently seeking recovery from third parties, including by filing and pursuing all applicable insurance claims, with respect to such Damages under any contractual rights and other remedies. The Parties acknowledge that the foregoing shall not affect the subrogation rights of any insurance companies making payments hereunder.

10.8       Exclusive Remedy.  Except for remedies that cannot be waived as a matter of Legal Requirement and absent Fraud, if Closing occurs, the indemnities set forth in this Agreement shall be the exclusive remedy for breach of any representation, warranty or covenant set forth in this Agreement; provided, however, nothing in this Section 10.8 shall be deemed to affect any Person's right to equitable relief (including specific performance in a court of law) for breach of a covenant set forth in this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, no breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement shall give rise to any right on the part of Buyer, after Closing, to rescind this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby. For purposes of this

42

Agreement, the term "Fraud" shall mean intentional deceit involving a material fact and, for the avoidance of doubt, does not include negligent misrepresentation or omission.

ARTICLE 11

11.2      Bulk Sales Laws.  The Parties hereby waive compliance with the provisions of any bulk sales, bulk transfer or similar laws of any jurisdiction that may otherwise be applicable with respect to the sale of any or all of the Purchased Assets to Buyer; it being understood that any liabilities arising out of

43


the failure of any Seller to comply with the requirements and provisions of any bulk sales, bulk transfer or similar laws of any jurisdiction will be treated as Retained Liabilities.

11.3       Further Assurances.  The Parties agree (a) to furnish such further information, (b) to execute and deliver such other documents, and (c) to do such other acts and things, all as another party may reasonably request for the purpose of carrying out the intent and purposes of this Agreement.

11.4       Waivers.  The rights and remedies of the Parties to this Agreement are cumulative and not alternative. Neither the failure nor delay by any Party in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Agreement or the documents referred to in this Agreement will operate as a waiver of such right, power or privilege, and no single or partial exercise of any such right, power or privilege will preclude any other or further exercise of such right, power or privilege or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law:  (a) no claim or right arising out of this Agreement or the documents referred to in this Agreement can be discharged by one party, in whole or in part, by a waiver or renunciation of the claim or right unless in writing signed by the other parties;  (b) no waiver that may be given by a party will be applicable except in the specific instance for which it is given; and  (c) no notice to or demand on one party will be deemed to be a waiver of any obligation of such party or of the right of the party giving such notice or demand to take further action without notice or demand as provided in this Agreement or the documents referred to in this Agreement.

11.5      Entire Agreement; Amendments.  This Agreement, including the Schedules and Exhibits hereto, and together with any related agreements and documents referred to in this Agreement, constitutes the entire understanding and agreement of the Parties hereto with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, and supersede all prior covenants, agreements, understandings and representations (including the LOI). This Agreement may not be amended or modified except by a written agreement executed by each of the Parties hereto.

11.6       Schedules and Exhibits.  To the extent applicable, if any matter set forth in one section of the Schedules relating to ARTICLE 4 and those in any supplement thereto, based solely on the substance of the disclosure itself, is patently clear that it would also be applicable to another section of the Schedules of the Sellers or to modify another representation or warranty on its face, such matter shall be deemed to be set forth in each other section of the Schedules and modify the representation and warranty to which it is applicable. Nothing in the Schedules of the Sellers constitutes an admission of any liability or obligation of Sellers to any third party or an admission of any liability to any third party against the interests of the Sellers. The fact that any item of information or references to dollar amounts is contained in the Schedules shall not be construed to mean that such information is (a) required to be disclosed by this Agreement or (b) a basis or standard for interpreting the terms "materiality," "materially," "material" or "material adverse effect" as used in this Agreement. If there is any inconsistency between the statements in the body of this Agreement and those in the Schedules (other than an exception expressly set forth as such in the Schedules with respect to a specifically identified representation or warranty), the statements in the body of this Agreement will control. All of the Exhibits and Schedules attached to this Agreement are incorporated into and are a part of this Agreement. Capitalized terms used but not defined in the Exhibits or Schedules attached to this Agreement shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Agreement.  To the extent any informational Schedule is not attached to this Agreement as of the Effective Date, Seller shall cause the Agreement to be amended no later than thirty-five (35) days after the Effective Date to include any remaining Schedules not then-attached.

11.7       Assignments, Successors and No Third Party Rights.  Neither Party may assign any of its rights under this Agreement without the prior consent of the other Parties, except that Buyer may assign any of its rights under this Agreement to any of its subsidiaries or affiliates for which it is the controlling owner including, without limitation, Newco; provided however, no such assignment shall relieve Buyer

44

of any of its obligations under this Agreement. Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement shall apply to, be binding in all respects upon and inure to the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of the Parties. Nothing expressed or referred to in this Agreement shall be construed to give any Person other than the Parties to this Agreement any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or with respect to this Agreement. This Agreement and all of its provisions and conditions are for the sole and exclusive benefit of the Parties to this Agreement and their successors and permitted assigns.

11.8       Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original copy of this Agreement and all of which, when taken together, shall be deemed to constitute one and the same agreement.

11.9       Severability.  Wherever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such a manner as to be valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement is invalid or prohibited thereunder, such invalidity or prohibition shall be construed as if such invalid or prohibited provision had not been inserted herein and shall not affect the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Agreement so long as such invalidity or prohibition does not deny either party of any material consideration to be received by it under this Agreement.

11.10     Publicity.  The Sellers and Buyer shall coordinate all publicity relating to the Contemplated Transactions, and no Party shall issue any press release, publicity statement or other public notice (including on or through any Internet-based channel or means) relating to this Agreement or the Contemplated Transactions without the prior written approval of the other Party (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), except to the extent that a particular disclosure is required by applicable law (in which event the party that seeks to make such disclosure shall, prior to making such disclosure, promptly advise and consult with the other party concerning the information proposed to be disclosed), provided, the parties acknowledge and agree that Buyer has disclosed to Seller that Buyer shall be required to disclose this Agreement in the event this Agreement becomes a material definitive agreement pursuant to applicable securities laws.  The foregoing shall not limit Sellers' and Buyer's ability to pursue any and all Governmental Authorizations that may be contemplated by this Agreement or that may be necessary in connection with the Contemplated Transactions. The provisions of this Section shall survive the Closing or any earlier termination of this Agreement. Any public announcement, including any disclosure required for compliance with SEC requirements, prior to the end of the delivery of a Notice to Proceed from Buyer, shall be subject to joint prior reasonable approval, it being acknowledge by Buyer that the confidentiality of this transaction is critical to Sellers pending final commitment from Buyer, provided, further, that nothing in this Section 11.10 shall require Buyer to violate or fall out of compliance with any applicable rule or regulations.

11.11      Dispute Resolution.  In the event of any controversy or claim arising from or in any manner relating to this Agreement or the documents executed and delivered pursuant hereto, the disputing parties will first endeavor, in good faith, to resolve the dispute through informal negotiation.
 
11.11.1      If the disputing parties are unable to resolve such dispute within a 30 day period (or within such extended period of time as the disputing parties shall agree upon in writing), the disputing parties will then submit the matters to mediation administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in Houston, Texas before a mediator appointed by the AAA.
 
11.11.2      If the matter is not resolved through mediation within in fifteen (15) days it will be referred to arbitration at the request of either Party in accordance with the following terms:

(A)          The arbitration will be conducted by three (3) neutral arbitrators agreed upon by the Parties, or if agreement cannot be reached, a panel of three arbitrators in the city of Houston, Texas in accordance with the AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules (the "Rules")

45


effective as of the commencement of the arbitration except as such Rules may be modified as provided herein. Unless the Rules mandate otherwise, all arbitrators shall be attorneys at law, currently licensed to practice law in any state of the United States with a minimum of 15 years professional experience in litigation/arbitration of commercial disputes that are the subject of such arbitration. 

(B)         The arbitrators shall permit such discovery of documents as they shall determine is appropriate in the circumstances, taking into account the needs of the disputing parties and the desirability of making discovery expeditious and cost-effective. The arbitrators shall also permit the exchange of lists of exhibits and witnesses in advance of the hearing. The arbitrators shall not award any remedy or relief that includes consequential or punitive damages.
 
(C)        The decision of the arbitrators shall be final, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitration may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.  The arbitrators shall have no power to waive, alter, amend, revoke or suspend any of the provisions of this Agreement, provided, however, that the arbitrator shall have the power to decide all questions with respect to the interpretation and validity of this Section 11.111.
 
11.11.3     Subject to and not in any way limiting this Section 11.111, each Party hereto irrevocably consents and submits to the jurisdiction in any action brought in connection with this Agreement in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, including, but not limited to, any action to enforce an award rendered pursuant to this Section 11.111.
 
11.11.4      All fees and costs of any mediation or arbitration will be assessed and paid, in the absence of the disputing parties' agreement to the contrary, equally by all disputing parties.
 
11.11.5      Except to the extent required by law or court or administrative order, no party, mediator, arbitrator, representative, counsel or witness shall disclose or confirm to any Person not present at the negotiation, mediation or arbitration any information about the negotiation, mediation or arbitration proceeding or hearings, including the names of the parties and the mediators or arbitrators, the nature and amount of the claims, the financial condition of any party, the expected date of the hearing or the award made.
 
11.11.6      The failure of either party to timely pay all advance fees or charges of AAA or the arbitrators will constitute a waiver of arbitration and permit the other party to either proceed with arbitration or take the dispute to a court of law.

11.12     Governing Law; Consent to Jurisdiction.  THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS, WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICTS-OF-LAWS PRINCIPLES THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE APPLICATION OF ANY OTHER LAW. THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE CONTEMPLATED TRANSACTIONS, WHETHER NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING, AND WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE. Each of the Parties hereto hereby irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts located in Harris County, Texas and the federal courts located in the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, in any Proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement.

11.13      Fees and Expenses.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, each Party will pay its own costs and expenses.

11.14      Attorneys' Fees.  If any Party brings any action or suit against another Party by reason of any breach of or default under this Agreement by such other party, the prevailing Party shall be entitled to

46


recover from the other Party all costs and expenses, including its attorneys' fees and costs, in addition to any other relief to which it may be entitled.

11.15     Allocations for Tax Purposes.  The Parties shall use the final Purchase Price allocations determined in accordance with Schedule 2.7 for purposes of any required tax returns or other filings made with the IRS.

11.16      Joint and Several Liability for Sellers and Interest Holders.  The liability and obligations of Sellers and Interest Holders hereunder are joint and several.

(h)          Article IX of the Credit Agreement is hereby amended to add the following new Section 9.12 in appropriate numerical order:
 
9.12       Recovery of Erroneous Payments. Without limitation of any other provision in this Agreement, if at any time Administrative Agent makes a payment hereunder in error to any Lender or any L/C Issuer (the “Credit Party”), whether or not in respect of an Obligation due and owing by Borrower at such time, where such payment is a Rescindable Amount, then in any such event, each Credit Party receiving a Rescindable Amount severally agrees to repay to Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the Rescindable Amount received by such Credit Party in immediately available funds in the currency so received, with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such Rescindable Amount is received by it to but excluding the date of payment to Administrative Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation. Each Credit Party irrevocably waives any and all defenses, including any “discharge for value” (under which a creditor might otherwise claim a right to retain funds mistakenly paid by a third party in respect of a debt owed by another) or similar defense to its obligation to return any Rescindable Amount.  Administrative Agent shall inform each Credit Party promptly upon determining that any payment made to such Credit Party comprised, in whole or in part, a Rescindable Amount.
 
(i)          Exhibit A of the Credit Agreement is hereby replaced with Exhibit A attached hereto.
 
(j)          All references in the Loan Documents to the Credit Agreement shall henceforth include references to the Credit Agreement, as modified and amended hereby, and as may, from time to time, be further amended, modified, extended, renewed, and/or increased.
 
(k)         Any and all of the terms and provisions of the Loan Documents are hereby amended and modified wherever necessary, even though not specifically addressed herein, so as to conform to the amendments and modifications set forth herein.
 
2.           Lender Joinders. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein,
 
(a)          Each New Lender hereby (i) agrees to become a “Lender” under the Credit Agreement; (ii) joins in, becomes a party to, and agrees to comply with and be bound by the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement, to the same extent as if such New Lender were an original signatory thereto; and (iii) agrees to provide a Commitment to Borrower under the Credit Agreement on the Effective Date in the amount set forth opposite such New Lender’s name on Schedule 2.01A attached hereto; and
 
(b)       Each New Lender hereby (i) represents and warrants that it has full power and authority, and has taken all action necessary, to execute and deliver this Amendment and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby; and (ii) agrees that it will (A) independently and without reliance on Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking action under the Loan Documents, and (B) perform in accordance with their terms all of the obligations which by the terms of the Loan Documents are required to be performed by it as a Lender.

3.          Increasing Lenders. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, each Increasing Lender hereby agrees to increase its Commitment on the Effective Date to equal the amount set forth opposite such Increasing Lender’s name on Schedule 2.01A attached hereto.

4.          Commitment Schedule; Reallocations. Upon the effectiveness of this Amendment, Borrower, Administrative Agent and Lenders shall make such reallocations, sales, assignments and other relevant actions in respect of each Lender’s Loans as are necessary in order that such Lender’s Loans reflect such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of the outstanding Aggregate Commitments on the Effective Date, and (unless otherwise waived by a Lender in its sole discretion) Borrower agrees to compensate each Lender for any loss, cost or expense incurred by such Lender in connection with the reallocation described above, in each case on the terms and in the manner set forth in Section 3.05 of the Credit Agreement.
 
5.           Representations and Warranties. Borrower hereby represents and warrants that:
 
(a)         Borrower has the power to execute and deliver this Amendment and to perform its obligations hereunder; and Borrower has duly authorized such execution, delivery and performance.

(c)       The representations and warranties of Borrower in the representations and warranties contained in Article V of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents are true and correct on and as of this Amendment, except to the extent that such representations and warranties specifically refer to an earlier date, in which case they are true and correct as of such earlier date and except that for purposes of this paragraph, the representations and warranties contained in subsections (a) and (b) of Section 5.05 of the Credit Agreement shall be deemed to refer to the most recent statements furnished pursuant to subsections (a) and (b), respectively, of Section 6.01 of the Credit Agreement.

(b)          This Amendment shall constitute one of the Loan Documents.
 
(c)         This Amendment shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.  This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, which together shall constitute one instrument.  Delivery of an executed counterpart of a signature page of this Amendment by telecopy shall be effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Amendment.  This Amendment shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York. This Amendment, together with the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents, embodies the entire agreement and understanding relating to the subject matter hereof.

not be construed in interpreting provisions, and (iii) if any part of this Amendment is for any reason found to be unenforceable, all other portions of it nevertheless remain enforceable.

(e)          The amendments set forth herein are limited precisely as written and shall not be deemed: (i) to be a consent under or waiver of any other term or condition in the Credit Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents; or (ii) to prejudice any right or rights which Administrative Agent and Lenders now have or may have in the future under, or in connection with the Credit Agreement, as amended hereby, the other Loan Documents or any of the other documents referred to herein or therein.
 
(f)          This Amendment may be in the form of an Electronic Record (and may be delivered by e-mail or facsimile) and may be executed using Electronic Signatures (including, without limitation, facsimile and .pdf) and shall be considered an original, and shall have the same legal effect, validity and enforceability as a paper record. This Amendment may be executed in as many counterparts as necessary or convenient, including both paper and electronic counterparts, but all such counterparts are one and the same letter agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the authorization under this paragraph may include, without limitation, use or acceptance by Bank of America, N.A. of a manually signed paper Communication which has been converted into electronic form (such as scanned into pdf format), or an electronically signed Communication converted into another format, for transmission, delivery and/or retention. For purposes hereof, (a) “Electronic Record” and “Electronic Signature” shall have the meanings assigned to them, respectively, by 15 USC §7006, as it may be amended from time to time and (b) “Communication” shall mean this Amendment and any document, amendment, approval, consent, information, notice, certificate, request, statement, disclosure or authorization related to this Amendment.
