CONSIDERATION

3.1 Purchase Price . On the Closing Date, in consideration of Seller’s sale of the Assets to Buyer, Buyer will assume the Assumed Liabilities and pay to Seller an aggregate purchase price in the amount equal to Two Hundred Million Dollars ($200,000,000) plus a payment equal to Seller’s cost of goods as determined using Seller’s internal accounting practice and specified in a schedule (the “Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule”) to be provided by Seller to Buyer three (3) days prior to Closing for all Product Inventory and Raw Materials and WIP, as may be adjusted pursuant to Section 3.4 hereof (collectively, the “Purchase Price”).

3.2 Method of Payment . The payment to be made pursuant to Section 3.1 shall be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to such account as Seller shall have designated to Buyer in writing not less then two (2) business days prior to the Closing Date, and any such payment shall be deemed to have been paid when recorded in the proper account.

3.3 Allocation of Purchase Price . Prior to Closing, Buyer and Seller will make reasonable efforts to agree on an allocation of the Purchase Price among the Assets in a manner that is consistent with the principles of Section 1060 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or any successor provision of any future tax law, or any comparable provision of state, local or foreign tax law. Buyer and Seller will (i) act in accordance with the allocation in the preparation of financial statements and the preparation and filing of all Tax returns (including the preparation and filing of IRS Form 8594) and (ii) take no position inconsistent with the allocation for all Tax purposes, unless required to do so by a taxing authority. In the event that such allocation is disputed by any taxing authority, the party receiving notice of the dispute shall promptly notify the other party hereto and shall forward to such other party copies of all correspondence with such taxing authority in respect of such disputed allocation.

3.4 Product Inventory, Raw Materials and WIP Adjustment . During the thirty (30) day period following the Closing Date, Buyer shall be permitted to review Seller’s Books and Records reasonably necessary for the preparation of the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule. The Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule shall become final and binding upon Buyer and Seller at the end of such thirty (30) day period, unless Buyer objects to the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule, in which case it shall send written notice (the “Notice of Objection”) to Seller within such period, setting forth in specific detail the basis for its objection and its proposal for any adjustments to the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule. If a timely Notice of Objection is received by Seller, then the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule shall become final and binding (except as provided below with respect to resolution of disputes) on Seller and Buyer on the first to occur of (i) the date Seller and Buyer resolve in writing any differences they have with respect to the matters specified in the Notice of Objection and (ii) the date all matters in dispute are finally resolved in writing by the Third Party Accounting Firm (as defined below),

 

10


in each case as provided below. Seller and Buyer shall seek in good faith to reach agreement as to any such proposed adjustment or that no such adjustment is necessary within ten (10) days following receipt of the Notice of Objection. If agreement is reached in writing within such ten (10) day period as to all proposed adjustments, or that no adjustments are necessary, the parties shall revise and finalize the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule accordingly. If Seller and Buyer are unable to reach agreement within ten (10) days following receipt of the Notice of Objection, then such certified public accounting firm of national reputation other than the auditors of Seller and Buyer as agreed upon by Seller and Buyer (the “Third Party Accounting Firm”) shall be engaged at that time to review the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule, and shall make a determination as to the resolution of any adjustments. The determination of the Third Party Accounting Firm shall be delivered as soon as practicable following engagement of the Third Party Accounting Firm, but in no event more than thirty (30) days thereafter, and shall be final, conclusive and binding upon Seller and Buyer and the parties shall revise the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule accordingly. Seller, on the one hand, and Buyer, on the other hand, shall each pay one-half of the cost of the Third Party Accounting Firm. Within ten (10) days of the date on which the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule becomes final and binding on Seller and Buyer, Buyer shall pay Seller the difference between the amount paid by Buyer as set forth on the Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule on the Closing Date and the final Closing Date Inventory Value Schedule to Seller as adjusted pursuant to this Section 3.4, if positive, and Seller shall pay such difference to Buyer, if negative. Any payment to be made pursuant to this Section 3.4 shall be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to such account as the party receiving the payment shall have designated to other party in writing not less than two (2) business days prior to the date of such payment. Any payment pursuant to this Section 3.4 shall be an adjustment to the Purchase Price.

ARTICLE 14

MISCELLANEOUS

14.1 Non-Survival of Representations and Warranties . The representations and warranties made in Articles 6 and 7 or any instrument delivered pursuant to this Agreement shall not survive after the Closing Date.

14.2 No Third Party Beneficiaries . Nothing in this Agreement, express or implied, is intended to or shall (i) confer on any person other than the parties hereto (and Buyer Indemnitees and the Seller Indemnitees referred to in) and their respective successors or assigns any rights (including third party beneficiary rights), remedies, obligations or liabilities under or by reason of this Agreement, or (ii) constitute the parties hereto as partners or as participants in a joint venture. This Agreement shall not provide third parties with any remedy, claim, liability, reimbursement, cause of action or other right in excess of those existing without reference to the terms of this Agreement. No third party shall have any right, independent of any right which may exist irrespective of this Agreement, under or granted by this Agreement, to bring any suit at law or equity for any matter governed by or subject to the provisions of this Agreement.

14.3 Force Majeure . If the performance by either party of any obligation under this Agreement is prevented, restricted, interfered with or delayed by reason of any cause beyond the reasonable control of the party liable to perform, unless conclusive evidence to the contrary is provided, the party so affected shall, upon giving written notice to the other party, be excused

 

31


from such performance to the extent of such prevention, restriction, interference or delay, provided that the affected party shall use its reasonable efforts to avoid or remove such causes of non-performance and shall continue performance with the utmost dispatch whenever such causes are removed. When such circumstances arise, the parties shall discuss what, if any, modification of the terms of this Agreement may be required in order to arrive at an equitable solution.

14.4 Governing Law; Jurisdiction; Dispute Resolution and Arbitration . This Agreement shall be deemed to have been made in the State of California and its form, execution, validity, construction and effect shall be determined in accordance with the laws of the state of California, without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of law thereof. Disputes arising out of, relating to or in connection with this Agreement, or in relations between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, for any reason or under any circumstances, will be finally settled by a single arbitrator in a binding arbitration in accordance with the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the “JAMS Rules”). Upon receipt of written notice of the existence of a dispute by one party hereto to the other, the parties shall, within thirty (30) days conduct a meeting of one or more senior executives of each party, with full settlement authority, in an attempt to resolve the dispute. Each party shall make available appropriate personnel to meet and confer with the other party reasonably within the thirty-day period. Upon the expiration of the thirty-day period, or upon the termination of discussions between the senior executives, either party may elect arbitration of any dispute by written notice to the other (the “Arbitration Notice”). The arbitration shall be held in San Francisco, California before one (1) arbitrator from JAMS having substantial experience as a jurist and mediator with significant disputes in the biotechnology and/or pharmaceuticals industry selected by the mutual agreement of the Buyer and the Seller; provided, however, that if such parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of the Arbitration Notice, either party may request JAMS select the arbitrator, and JAMS shall select an arbitrator pursuant to the procedure set out by the JAMS rules, provided, however, that the arbitrator selected be a former judge with at least fifteen (15) years experience addressing as a jurist and/or mediator significant disputes in the biotechnology and or pharmaceutical industry. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its AAA Rules. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator may, in the arbitration award, allocate for payment by the non-prevailing party all or part of the costs of the arbitration, including fees of the arbitrator and the reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by the prevailing party. This Section shall not preclude the parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. In respect of any actions for injunctive or other equitable relief hereunder, any action or proceeding may be brought against any party in the state and federal courts located in the city of San Francisco, California and each of the parties consents to the jurisdiction of such courts in any such action or proceeding and waives any objection to venue laid therein.

14.5 Severability . If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, it shall be modified, if possible, to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable or, if such modification is not possible, such provision shall be stricken and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect; provided, however, that if a provision is stricken so as to significantly alter the economic arrangements of this Agreement, the party adversely affected may terminate this Agreement upon 60 days’ prior written notice to the other party. If any of the terms or provisions of this

 

32


Agreement is in conflict with any applicable statute or rule of law in any jurisdiction, then such term or provision shall be deemed inoperative in such jurisdiction to the extent of such conflict and the parties will renegotiate the affected terms and conditions of this Agreement to resolve any inequities.

14.6 Entire Agreement . This Agreement and the ancillary transaction documents to be executed and delivered pursuant to this Agreement are intended to define the full extent of the legally enforceable undertakings and representations of the parties hereto, and no promise or representation, written or oral, which is not set forth explicitly in this Agreement or such ancillary transaction documents is intended by either party to be legally binding; provided, however, in the event this Agreement terminates, the Confidentiality Agreement shall continue in full force and effect pursuant to its terms. Each of the parties acknowledge that in deciding to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the transaction contemplated hereby none of them has relied upon any statements or representations, written or oral, other than those explicitly set forth in this Agreement.

14.7 Amendment . This Agreement may not be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified except by an instrument in writing signed by both parties that specifically refers to this Agreement.

14.8 Notices . All notices and other communications given or made pursuant hereto shall be in writing and shall be deemed effectively given: (i) upon personal delivery to the party to be notified, (ii) when sent by confirmed facsimile, (iii) five (5) days after having been sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid or (iv) one (1) day after deposit with a nationally recognized overnight courier, specifying next day delivery, with written verification of receipt.
