SCHEDULE 13D/A

(Amendment No. 3)

 

Statement of

 

Qurate Retail, Inc.

 

Pursuant to Section 13(d) of the

Securities Exchange Act of 1934

 

in respect of

 

FTD Companies, Inc.

 

This Report on Schedule 13D relates to the common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Common Stock”) of FTD Companies, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer” or “FTD”).  The Report on Schedule 13D originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) by Qurate Retail, Inc. (formerly known as Liberty Interactive Corporation), a Delaware corporation (the “Reporting Person” or “Qurate”), on January 9, 2015, as amended by Amendment No. 1 to the Report on Schedule 13D/A filed with the SEC by the Reporting Person on September 5, 2017, and Amendment No. 2 to the Report on Schedule 13D/A filed with the SEC by the Reporting Person on March 16, 2018 (together, the “Schedule 13D”) is hereby further amended and supplemented to include the information set forth herein.  This amended statement on Schedule 13D/A (this “Amendment”, and together with the Schedule 13D, the “Statement”) constitutes Amendment No. 3 to the Schedule 13D.   This Amendment constitutes an exit filing of the Reporting Person in respect of shares of Common Stock previously reported as beneficially owned by the Reporting Person.  Capitalized terms not defined herein have the meanings given to such terms in the Schedule 13D.  Except as set forth herein, the Schedule 13D is unmodified.

 

Item 2.         Identity and Background

 

The information contained in Item 2 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following information:

 

The Reporting Person is Qurate Retail, Inc., a Delaware corporation, whose principal business is owning controlling and non-controlling interests in a broad range of video and online commerce companies, and whose principal office is located at 12300 Liberty Boulevard, Englewood, Colorado 80112.

 

Schedule 1 attached hereto is incorporated by reference and amends and restates Schedule 1 of the Schedule 13D in its entirety.  Each of such executive officers and directors is a citizen of the United States, unless otherwise noted on Schedule 1.  Neither the Reporting Person, nor, to the best knowledge of the Reporting Person, any of its executive officers and directors named on Schedule 1 to this Amendment, has, during the last five years, been convicted of a criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction resulting in a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

 

Item 5.         Interest in Securities of the Issuer

 

The information contained in Item 5 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and restated to read as follows:

 

3


 

(a) — (b) The Reporting Person beneficially owns no shares of Common Stock.

 

(c) Neither the Reporting Person nor, to the knowledge of the Reporting Person, any of the executive officers and directors of the Reporting Person, effected any transactions in respect of the Common Stock within the last sixty days.

 

(d)  Not applicable.

 

(e)  The Reporting Person ceased to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent of the outstanding shares of Common Stock on May 31, 2019.

 

Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings, or Relationships with Respect to the Securities of the Issuer

 

Item 6 of the Schedule 13D is hereby amended and supplemented by adding the following information:

 

On May 30, 2019, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Reporting Person, Liberty Interactive LLC, entered into three separate stock purchase agreements pursuant to which, on May 31, 2019, it sold (i) 3,401,003 shares of Common Stock to Diamond Investment Group, LLC for an aggregate purchase price of $1.00, (ii) 3,401,003 shares of Common Stock to Travertine Creek, Inc. for an aggregate purchase price of $1.00, and (iii) 3,401,004 shares of Common Stock to FTD 50 LLC for an aggregate purchase price of $1.00 (collectively, the “Transactions”). As a result of the Transactions, the Reporting Person ceased to beneficially own any shares of Common Stock.

 

The Reporting Person sold the shares in order to recognize a tax loss on its investment in the Issuer. The Reporting Person intends to use the tax loss to offset gains on other capital transactions.

 

As a result of the Transactions, the Reporting Person no longer has the right to designate nominees to serve as members of the Board of Directors of the Issuer (the “FTD Board”) pursuant to the Investor Rights Agreement, dated as of December 31, 2014, between the Reporting Person and the Issuer (the “Investor Rights Agreement”), previously described in the Schedule 13D. The Investor Rights Agreement provides that on a reduction in the Reporting Person’s ownership it will use reasonable best efforts to cause its designees on the FTD Board to resign.  On May 31, 2019, the Issuer requested that the Reporting Person use such efforts to cause Robin S. Hickenlooper and Christopher W. Shean, to resign from the FTD Board, and Ms. Hickenlooper and Mr. Shean did resign from the FTD Board on that date.  The Issuer requested that the Reporting Person refrain from using such efforts to cause Candace H. Duncan and Sue Ann R. Hamilton, to resign from the FTD Board, and Ms. Duncan and Ms. Hamilton continue to serve on the FTD Board.

(g)                                  as of the date hereof, there is no action, suit, investigation or proceeding, governmental, regulatory or otherwise by or before any court or other Governmental Entity (“Proceeding”), pending or, to the knowledge of Seller, threatened, against Seller relating to the Subject Shares or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; and

3


 

obligation of Buyer enforceable against Buyer in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws affecting the rights of creditors generally and by general principles of equity;

 

(d)                                 Buyer (i) has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits, risks and suitability of the Transaction, (ii) is able to bear the risk of an entire loss of its investment in the Subject Shares, and (iii) is consummating the Transaction with a full understanding of all of the terms, conditions and risks and willingly assumes those terms, conditions and risks;

 

(e)                                  Buyer has received and carefully reviewed the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended 2018, all subsequent public filings of the Company with the SEC, other publicly available information regarding the Company, and such other information that it and its advisers deem necessary to make its decision to enter into the Transaction;

 

(f)                                   Buyer has evaluated the merits and risks of the Transaction based exclusively on its own independent review and consultations with such investment, legal, tax, accounting and other advisers as it deemed necessary.

Notwithstanding such disparity, Buyer has deemed it appropriate to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the Transaction;

 

(h)                                 Buyer agrees that none of Seller, its affiliates, principals, stockholders, partners, employees or agents shall have any liability to Buyer whatsoever due to or in connection with Seller’s use or non-disclosure of the Information or otherwise as a result of the Transaction, and Buyer hereby irrevocably waives any claim that it might have based on the failure of Seller to disclose the Information;

 

(i)                                     Buyer is an accredited investor (as such term is defined in the Securities Act) and is acquiring the Subject Shares for its own account with the intention of holding the Subject Shares for investment purposes and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution of such securities in violation of any federal or state securities laws;

 

(j)                                    Buyer understands that the Subject Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act or the applicable securities or blue sky laws of any state or other

 

4


 

jurisdiction and, accordingly, must be held indefinitely unless a subsequent sale or other transfer thereof by Buyer is registered under the Securities Act and such securities or blue sky laws or is exempt from registration thereunder;

 

(k)                                 No shares of Common Stock or securities that are convertible, exchangeable or exercisable into Common Stock are beneficially owned (as defined by Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act) by Buyer or any of Buyer’s affiliates, or at the Closing will be owned or beneficially owned by Buyer, other than the Subject Shares to be acquired at the Closing; and

 

(l)                                     Buyer is not a Prohibited Transferee as that term is defined in the IRA.

 

SECTION 2.                            DELIVERIES IN CONNECTION WITH CLOSING

2.2                               Buyer Deliveries.  At the Closing, Buyer shall deliver or cause to be delivered to Seller (or its designees) the Aggregate Purchase Price in cash.

 

SECTION 3.                            COVENANTS

 

3.1                               Further Assurances.  Each party hereto shall reasonably cooperate with the other party and use its reasonable best efforts to promptly take, or cause to be taken, all actions, and do, or cause to be done, all things reasonably necessary, proper or advisable to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.  If, subsequent to the Closing Date, further documents are reasonably requested in order to carry out the provisions and purposes of this Agreement, the parties hereto shall execute and deliver such further documents.

 

3.2                               Expenses.  Seller shall reimburse Buyer for its documented, out-of-pocket legal fees reasonably incurred by Buyer in connection with the review and negotiation of this Agreement and any necessary beneficial ownership or similar filings to be made by Buyer with the SEC as a result of the Transaction.

 

3.3                               Reliance. Each of Seller and Buyer agree that Baker Botts L.L.P. may rely on the representations, warranties and agreements of each such party contained in this Agreement in connection with the rendering of one or more legal opinions which may be rendered, as and if requested by Seller, in connection with the Transaction.

 

SECTION 4.                            INDEMNIFICATION

 

4.1                               To the extent permitted by law, Seller shall indemnify and hold harmless Buyer against all losses, claims, damages, expenses and liabilities (including the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel) (collectively, “Losses”), suffered by it arising out of any Proceeding brought or threatened by a third-party (a “Third-Party Claim”) arising out of the Transaction.

 

5


 

4.2                               Promptly (but no later than three Business Days) after receipt by Buyer of notice of, or becoming aware of the assertion of, a Third-Party Claim, Buyer will notify Seller in writing thereof together with a copy of such Third-Party Claim (if available), but failure to so notify Seller shall not relieve Seller from any obligation Seller may have hereunder. “Business Day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or day on which banking institutions in New York are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to be closed.  Seller shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to control the defense of such Third-Party Claim.  If Buyer, based on advice of counsel, reasonably determines that there exists a conflict of interest between Seller and Buyer with respect to such Third-Party Claim, then Buyer will be entitled to employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such Third-Party Claim. Seller will retain the exclusive right to settle the Third-Party Claim; provided, however, if the terms of such settlement provide for substantive relief other than the payment of monetary damages, no such settlement shall be made without the prior consent of Buyer, whose consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. In such event, the reasonable fees and disbursements of such counsel for Buyer will be paid by Seller.

 

SECTION 5.                            MISCELLANEOUS

 

5.1                               Notice.  Any notice, request, claim, demand or other communication under this Agreement shall be in writing, shall be either personally delivered, delivered by facsimile transmission, or sent by reputable overnight courier service (charges prepaid) to the address for such party set forth below or such other address as the recipient party has specified by prior written notice to the other parties hereto and shall be deemed to have been given hereunder when receipt is acknowledged for personal delivery or facsimile transmission or one day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier service.

(a)                                 Each party hereto acknowledges that money damages would not be an adequate remedy in the event that any of the agreements in this Agreement are not performed in accordance with its terms, and it is therefore agreed that in addition to and without limiting any other remedy or right it may have, the non-breaching party will have the right to an injunction, temporary restraining order or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction enjoining any such breach and enforcing specifically the terms and provisions hereof.

 

(b)                                 All rights, powers and remedies provided under this Agreement or otherwise available in respect hereof at law or in equity shall be cumulative and not alternative, and the exercise or beginning of the exercise of any thereof by any party shall not preclude the simultaneous or later exercise of any other such right, power or remedy by such party.

 

5.6                               Severability.  Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable Law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable Law or rule in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision or any other jurisdiction, but this Agreement shall be reformed, construed and enforced in such jurisdiction as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.

 

5.7                               Entire Agreement.  This Agreement embodies the complete agreement and understanding among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof or thereof and supersedes and preempts any prior understandings, agreements or representations by or among the parties, written or oral, that may have related to the subject matter hereof in any way.

 

5.8                               Interpretation.  The headings contained in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of this Agreement.  Whenever the words “include”, “includes” or “including” are used in this Agreement, they shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.”

 

5.9                               Amendments and Waivers.  This Agreement may not be amended except by an instrument in writing signed by all parties hereto. Waiver of any term or condition of this Agreement by any party shall only be effective if in writing and shall not be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach or failure of the same term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition of this Agreement.

4

3.2                               Expenses.  Seller shall reimburse Buyer for its documented, out-of-pocket legal fees reasonably incurred by Buyer in connection with the review and negotiation of this Agreement and any necessary beneficial ownership or similar filings to be made by Buyer with the SEC as a result of the Transaction.

Each of Seller and Buyer agree that Baker Botts L.L.P. may rely on the representations, warranties and agreements of each such party contained in this Agreement in connection with the rendering of one or more legal opinions which may be rendered, as and if requested by Seller, in connection with the Transaction.

 

SECTION 4.                            INDEMNIFICATION

 

4.1                               To the extent permitted by law, Seller shall indemnify and hold harmless Buyer against all losses, claims, damages, expenses and liabilities (including the reasonable fees

and expenses of counsel) (collectively, “Losses”), suffered by it arising out of any Proceeding brought or threatened by a third-party (a “Third-Party Claim”) arising out of the Transaction.

 

4.2                               Promptly (but no later than three Business Days) after receipt by Buyer of notice of, or becoming aware of the assertion of, a Third-Party Claim, Buyer will notify Seller in writing thereof together with a copy of such Third-Party Claim (if available), but failure to so notify Seller shall not relieve Seller from any obligation Seller may have hereunder. “Business Day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or day on which banking institutions in New York are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to be closed.  Seller shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to control the defense of such Third-Party Claim.  If Buyer, based on advice of counsel, reasonably determines that there exists a conflict of interest between Seller and Buyer with respect to such Third-Party Claim, then Buyer will be entitled to employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such Third-Party Claim.  In such event, the reasonable fees and disbursements of such counsel for Buyer will be paid by Seller.  Seller will retain the exclusive right to settle the Third-Party Claim; provided, however, if the terms of such settlement provide for substantive relief other than the payment of monetary damages or if the terms of such settlement require an admission of wrong doing on the part of Buyer, no such settlement shall be made without the prior consent of Buyer, whose consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

 

SECTION 5.                            MISCELLANEOUS

 

5.1                               Notice.  Any notice, request, claim, demand or other communication under this Agreement shall be in writing, shall be either personally delivered, delivered by facsimile transmission, or sent by reputable overnight courier service (charges prepaid) to the address for such party set forth below or such other address as the recipient party has specified by prior written notice to the other parties hereto and shall be deemed to have been given hereunder when receipt is acknowledged for personal delivery or facsimile transmission or one day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier service.

(iii)                               other than deliveries required under Section 1.2(c)(iii) of the IRA, require, on the part of Seller or Qurate, any consent by or approval of or notice to any other person or entity (other than a Governmental Entity), the absence or omission of which would, either individually or in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on Seller’s ability to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby; or

 

(iv)                              result (with or without notice, lapse of time or otherwise) in a breach of the terms or conditions of, a default under, a conflict with, or the acceleration of (or the creation in any person of any right to cause the acceleration of) any performance or any increase in any payment required by, or the termination, suspension, modification, impairment or forfeiture (or the creation in any person of any right to cause the termination, suspension, modification, impairment or forfeiture) of any material rights or privileges of Seller (any such breach, default, conflict, acceleration, increase, termination, suspension, modification, impairment or forfeiture, a “Violation”) under (x) any agreement, contract, note, bond, mortgage, deed, indenture, lien, instrument, lease, license or arrangement (collectively, “Contract”), or any judgment, injunction, rule, directive, writ, order or decree (collectively, “Judgment”) of any court, administrative or regulatory body, governmental authority or similar body applicable to Seller to which Seller is a party or by or to which Seller, its properties, assets or any of the Subject Shares may be subject, bound or affected or (y) any applicable statute, law, rule or regulation (collectively, “Law”) other than any such Violations as would not, either individually or in the aggregate, have a material adverse effect on Seller’s ability to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby;

 

(g)                                  as of the date hereof, there is no action, suit, inquiry, investigation or proceeding, governmental, regulatory or otherwise by or before any court or other Governmental Entity (“Proceeding”), pending or, to the knowledge of Seller, threatened, against Seller relating to the Subject Shares or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; and

 

(h)                                 Seller is not bound by or subject to any Contract with any person which will result in Buyer being obligated to pay any finder’s fees, brokerage or agent’s commissions or other like payments in connection with the negotiations leading to this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby.

 

1.3                               Representations of Buyer.  Buyer represents and warrants to Seller that:

 

(a)                                 Buyer is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction that governs it, and has the full power and authority to carry on its business as now conducted and to own its assets;

 

3


 

(b)                                 Buyer has the requisite power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to perform its obligations hereunder and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby, including to purchase, acquire and accept from Seller all right, title and interest in and to the Subject Shares;

 

(c)                                  this Agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by Buyer, and, assuming the due execution and delivery thereof by Seller, is a valid and binding obligation of Buyer enforceable against Buyer in accordance with its terms, except as such enforceability may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and other similar laws affecting the rights of creditors generally and by general principles of equity;

 

(d)                                 Buyer (i) has such knowledge and experience in financial and business matters as to be capable of evaluating the merits, risks and suitability of the Transaction, (ii) is able to bear the risk of an entire loss of its investment in the Subject Shares, and (iii) is consummating the Transaction with a full understanding of all of the terms, conditions and risks and willingly assumes those terms, conditions and risks;

 

(e)                                  Buyer has received and carefully reviewed the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended 2018, all subsequent public filings of the Company with the SEC as of the date of this Agreement, other publicly available information regarding the Company, and such other information that it and its advisers deem necessary to make its decision to enter into the Transaction;

 

(f)                                   Buyer has evaluated the merits and risks of the Transaction based exclusively on its own independent review and consultations with such investment, legal, tax, accounting and other advisers as it deemed necessary. Buyer has made its own decision concerning the Transaction without reliance on any representation or warranty of Seller other than those contained in Section 1.2 or any advice from Seller;

 

(g)                                  Buyer acknowledges and understands that (i) Seller and its affiliates possess material nonpublic information regarding the Company not known to Buyer that may impact the value of the Subject Shares, including, without limitation, (x) information received by principals and employees of Seller in their capacities as directors or significant stockholders of the Company, (y) information otherwise received from the Company on a confidential basis, and (z) information which may have been received on a privileged basis from the attorneys and financial advisers representing the Company and its board of directors (collectively, the “Information”), and that Seller is not disclosing the Information to Buyer. Buyer understands, based on its experience, the disadvantage to which Buyer is subject due to the disparity of information between Seller and Buyer. Notwithstanding such disparity, Buyer has deemed it appropriate to enter into this Agreement and to consummate the Transaction;

 

(h)                                 Buyer agrees that none of Seller, its affiliates, principals, stockholders, partners, employees or agents shall have any liability to Buyer whatsoever due to or in connection with Seller’s use or non-disclosure of the Information or otherwise as a result of the Transaction, and Buyer hereby irrevocably waives any claim that it might have based on the failure of Seller to disclose the Information;

 

4


 

(i)                                     Buyer is an accredited investor (as such term is defined in the Securities Act) and is acquiring the Subject Shares for its own account with the intention of holding the Subject Shares for investment purposes and not with a view to or for sale in connection with any distribution of such securities in violation of any federal or state securities laws;

 

(j)                                    Buyer understands that the Subject Shares have not been registered under the Securities Act or the applicable securities or blue sky laws of any state or other jurisdiction and, accordingly, must be held indefinitely unless a subsequent sale or other transfer thereof by Buyer is registered under the Securities Act and such securities or blue sky laws or is exempt from registration under the Securities Act and/or any applicable blue sky laws;

 

(k)                                 No shares of Common Stock or securities that are convertible, exchangeable or exercisable into Common Stock are beneficially owned (as defined by Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act) by Buyer or any of Buyer’s affiliates, or at the Closing will be owned or beneficially owned by Buyer, other than the Subject Shares to be acquired at the Closing; and

 

(l)                                     Buyer is not a Prohibited Transferee as that term is defined in the IRA.

 

SECTION 2.                            DELIVERIES IN CONNECTION WITH CLOSING

2.2                               Buyer Deliveries.  At the Closing, Buyer shall deliver or cause to be delivered to Seller (or its designees) the Aggregate Purchase Price in cash.

 

SECTION 3.                            COVENANTS

 

3.1                               Further Assurances.  Each party hereto shall reasonably cooperate with the other party and use its reasonable best efforts to promptly take, or cause to be taken, all actions, and do, or cause to be done, all things reasonably necessary, proper or advisable to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.  If, subsequent to the Closing Date, further documents are reasonably requested in order to carry out the provisions and purposes of this Agreement, the parties hereto shall execute and deliver such further documents.

 

3.2                               Expenses.  Seller shall reimburse Buyer for its documented, out-of-pocket legal fees reasonably incurred by Buyer in connection with the review and negotiation of this Agreement and any necessary beneficial ownership or similar filings to be made by Buyer with the SEC as a result of the Transaction.

 

3.3                               Reliance. Each of Seller and Buyer agree that Baker Botts L.L.P. may rely on the representations, warranties and agreements of each such party contained in this Agreement in connection with the rendering of one or more legal opinions which may be rendered, as and if requested by Seller, in connection with the Transaction.

SECTION 4.                            INDEMNIFICATION

 

4.1                               To the extent permitted by law, Seller shall (a) indemnify and hold harmless Buyer and its officers, directors, shareowners, affiliates, employees and agents (collectively, the “Buyer Parties”),  against all losses, claims, damages, expenses and liabilities (including the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel) (collectively, “Losses”), of every kind, nature or description brought or threatened by a third-party, including any Proceeding, (a “Third-Party Claim”) arising from: (i) the breach of any representation or warranty of Seller set forth in this Agreement; (ii) the breach of any of the covenants or agreements by Seller contained in or arising out of this Agreement or the Transaction; (iii) the ownership by Seller of the Subject Shares prior to the Closing Date; or (iv) the consummation of the Transaction, including, but not limited to, any such Losses that the Buyer Parties may become subject to under the Securities Act or the Exchange Act, and (b) subject to Section 4.2 below, reimburse each Buyer Party for all fees and expenses in connection with any such Losses, including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel (collectively, the “Expenses”) as such Expenses are incurred.  Third-Party Claims shall include, but are not limited to, all manner of legal actions of every kind and nature, in law, tort, equity, statutory violation, or any combination thereof.

 

4.2                               Promptly (but no later than three Business Days) after receipt by a Buyer Party of notice of, or becoming aware of the assertion of, a Third-Party Claim, Buyer will notify Seller in writing thereof together with a copy of such Third-Party Claim (if available), but failure to so notify Seller shall not relieve Seller from any obligation Seller may have hereunder. Within three Business Days of such notice, Seller shall advance to the Buyer Party, in immediately available funds, the total amount of Expenses incurred by a Buyer Party in connection with (i) defending any Third-Party Claim in advance of its final disposition or (ii) any other Losses incurred by a Buyer Party, in each case, of the type covered by Section 4.1 and subject to the right of Seller to control the defense and settlement of a Third-Party Claim as provided below. “Business Day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or day on which banking institutions in New York are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to be closed.  Seller shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to control the defense of such Third-Party Claim.  If the Buyer Party, based on advice of counsel, reasonably determines that there exists a conflict of interest between Seller and Buyer Party with respect to such Third-Party Claim, then the Buyer Party will be entitled to employ separate counsel and to participate in the defense of such Third-Party Claim. Seller will retain the exclusive right to settle the Third-Party Claim; provided, however, if the terms of such settlement provide for substantive relief other than the payment of monetary damages, no such settlement shall be made without the prior consent of the Buyer Party, whose consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. In such event, the reasonable fees and disbursements of such counsel for the Buyer Party will be paid by Seller.

thereof that would cause the laws of any other jurisdiction to apply.  Each of the parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Delaware or Federal Courts of the United States of America, in each case, located in the State of Delaware for any Proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, whether framed in contract, tort or otherwise, and further agrees that service of any process, summons, notice or document by U.S. mail to its respective address set forth in this Agreement shall be effective service of process for any Proceeding brought against it in any such court.  Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives any objection to the laying of venue of any Proceeding arising out of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby in the courts of the State of Delaware, and hereby further irrevocably and unconditionally waives and agrees not to plead or claim in any such court that any such Proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.  EACH OF THE PARTIES IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY IN CONNECTION WITH ANY PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.

5.5                               Remedies.

 

(a)                                 Each party hereto acknowledges that money damages would not be an adequate remedy in the event that any of the agreements in this Agreement are not performed in accordance with its terms, and it is therefore agreed that in addition to and without limiting any other remedy or right it may have, the non-breaching party will have the right to an injunction, temporary restraining order or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction enjoining any such breach and enforcing specifically the terms and provisions hereof.

 

(b)                                 All rights, powers and remedies provided under this Agreement or otherwise available in respect hereof at law or in equity shall be cumulative and not alternative, and the exercise or beginning of the exercise of any thereof by any party shall not preclude the simultaneous or later exercise of any other such right, power or remedy by such party.

 

5.6                               Severability.  Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable Law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect under

 

8


 

any applicable Law or rule in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision or any other jurisdiction, but this Agreement shall be reformed, construed and enforced in such jurisdiction as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein.

 

5.7                               Entire Agreement.  This Agreement embodies the complete agreement and understanding among the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof or thereof and supersedes and preempts any prior understandings, agreements or representations by or among the parties, written or oral, that may have related to the subject matter hereof in any way.
