any Registrable Shares in such registration unless the Holder accepts the

by the Company. The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless any Holder
Registrable Securities which has included Registrable Securities in a
registration statement, its officers, directors and agents and each Person,
any, who controls such Holder within the meaning of Section 15 of the
Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act from and against any and
all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses (including reasonable
attorneys fees and costs of investigation) arising out of or based upon any
untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained
registration statement or final prospectus relating to the Registrable
Securities or in any amendment or supplement thereto or in any preliminary
prospectus, or arising out of or based upon any omission or alleged omission
state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary
the statements therein not misleading, except insofar as such losses, claims,
damages, liabilities or expenses arise out of, or are based upon, any such
untrue statement or omission based upon information furnished in writing
Company by the Holder of the Registrable Securities or on such Holder’s behalf
expressly for use therein; provided, that with respect to any untrue statement
or omission made in any preliminary prospectus, the indemnity agreement
contained in this paragraph shall not apply to the extent that any such loss,
claim, damage, liability or expense results from the fact that a current
the prospectus was not sent or given to the person asserting any such loss,
claim, damage, liability or expense at or prior to the written confirmation
the sale of the Registrable Securities concerned if it is determined that
the responsibility of the Holder of such Registrable Securities to provide
person with a current copy of the prospectus and such current copy of the
prospectus would have cured the defect giving rise to such loss, claim, damage,
liability or expense. It is agreed that the foregoing indemnity shall not
to amounts paid in settlement of any such loss, claim, damage, liability
expense if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Company.
Company also agrees to indemnify any underwriters of the Registrable Securities,
their officers and directors and each person who controls such underwriters
substantially the same basis as that of the indemnification of the Holder
such Registrable Securities provided in this section (d).
by the Holder of Registrable Securities. The Holder of Registrable Securities,
to the extent it is selling Registrable Securities (“
agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Company, its directors and officers
and each Person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of either
Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act to
the same extent as the foregoing indemnity from the Company to the Selling
Holder, but only with respect to, and to the extent that, information furnished
in writing by the Selling Holder or on the Selling Holder’s behalf expressly for
use in any registration statement or final prospectus relating to the
Registrable Securities (or any amendment or supplement thereto, or any
preliminary prospectus) which contained an untrue statement or alleged untrue
statement of a material fact or omitted or allegedly omitted to state therein
material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements
therein not misleading. It is agreed that the foregoing indemnity shall not
apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such loss, claim, damage, liability
or expense if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Selling
Holder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the liability
of the Holder hereunder shall be limited to the proportion of any such loss,
claim, damage, liability or expense that is equal to the proportion that
public offering price of the shares of Registrable Securities sold by the
bears to the total public offering price of all securities sold in such
offering. The Selling Holder also agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the
underwriters on substantially the same basis of that of the indemnification
the Company provided in the preceding subsection.
If the indemnification provided for in this
unavailable to the Company, the Selling Holder or the underwriters in respect
any losses, claims, damages, liabilities, expenses or judgments referred
herein, then each such indemnifying party, in lieu of indemnifying such
indemnified party, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such
indemnified party as a result of such losses, claims, damages, liabilities,
expenses and judgments (i) as between the Company and the Selling Holder on
the one hand and the underwriters on the other, in such proportion as is
appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Company and
Selling Holder on the one hand and the underwriters on the other from the
offering of the Registrable Securities, or if such allocation is not permitted
by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only
relative benefits but also the relative fault of the Company and the Selling
Holder on the one hand and of the underwriters on the other in connection
the statements or omissions which resulted in such losses, claims, damages,
liabilities, expenses or judgments, as well as any other relevant equitable
considerations and (ii) as between the Company on the one hand and each
Selling Holder on the other, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect
relative fault of the Company and of each Selling Holder in connection with
statements or omissions, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.
The relative benefits received by the Company and the Selling Holder on the
hand and the underwriters on the other shall be deemed to be in the same
proportion as the total proceeds from the offering (net of underwriting
discounts and commissions but before deducting expenses) received by the
and the Selling Holder bear to the total underwriting discounts and commissions
received by the underwriters, in each case as set forth in the table on the
cover page of the prospectus. The relative fault of the Company on the one
and of each Selling Holder on the other shall be determined by reference
among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material
