2.5
Determination of Net Closing Cash
 
(a)
Within sixty (60) days following the Closing Date, the Purchaser shall prepare, at the Purchaser’s expense, and deliver to the Shareholders’ Representative, a calculation of the Net Closing Cash as at the Closing Date.
 
(b)
Following receipt of the calculation of the Net Closing Cash, the Shareholders’ Representative will have thirty (30) days to review them (the “Review Period”).  During the Review Period, the Purchaser shall give access, upon every reasonable request, to the Shareholders’ Representative, to the Books and Records and all working papers of the Purchaser created in connection with the preparation of the calculation of the Net Closing Cash, to verify the accuracy, presentation and other matters relating to the preparation of the calculation of the Net Closing Cash.
 
(c)
The Purchaser and the Vendors shall each bear their own fees and expenses, including the fees and expenses of their respective auditors, in preparing or reviewing, as the case may be, the calculation of the Net Closing Cash.  If a dispute regarding the calculation of the Net Closing Cash is submitted for determination to the Independent Accountant under Section 2.6(b), the fees and expenses of the Parties and the Independent Accountant will be paid in accordance with Section 2.6(b).
 
2.6
Acceptance or Dispute of the Net Closing Cash
 
(a)
Following receipt of the calculation of the Net Closing Cash as contemplated by Section 2.5, if the Shareholders’ Representative objects in good faith to any item on the calculation of the Net Closing Cash, the Shareholders’ Representative shall so notify the Purchaser by delivering to the Purchaser a written notice to that effect (the ”Notice of Objection”) prior to the end of the Review Period.  The Notice of Objection must set out the reasons for the objection, the amount in dispute and reasonable details of the calculation of that amount.  If the Shareholders’ Representative does not object to any item on the calculation of the Net Closing Cash, the Shareholders’ Representative may so notify the Purchaser by delivering a written notice to that effect (the ”Notice of Acceptance”).  If the Shareholders’ Representative does not deliver a Notice of Objection or Notice of Acceptance to the Purchaser prior to the end of the Review Period, the Shareholders’ Representative will be deemed to have delivered a Notice of Acceptance to the Purchaser on the last day of the Review Period and the calculation of the Net Closing Cash will be deemed to be final and binding on the Purchaser and each of the Vendors for purposes of the adjustments referred to in Section 2.7.  (For greater certainty, no Party may attempt to dispute, recover, duplicate or adjust any amount which that Party is required to pay or entitled to receive as a result the adjustments referred to in Section 2.7 by making a claim for Damages under Article 5.)
 
 
-15-

 

(b)
If the Shareholders’ Representative delivers a Notice of Objection in accordance with Section 2.6(a), the Purchaser and the Shareholders’ Representative shall work expeditiously and in good faith to resolve all of the items in dispute set out in the Notice of Objection within thirty (30) days following delivery of the Notice of Objection.  Any items in dispute that are not resolved by the end of that thirty (30) day period will be submitted by the Parties for determination to an independent accounting firm mutually agreed to by the Purchaser and the Shareholders’ Representative or, if the Purchaser and the Shareholders’ Representative are unable to agree on the independent accounting firm within a further ten (10) day period, to BDO Canada (Bedford office), or if that accounting firm is unable to act, to Bishop and Company Chartered Accountants Inc. In making its determination, the selected accounting firm (the ”Independent Accountant”) will act as expert and not as arbitrator, must only consider the items in dispute submitted to it, and must make reasonable efforts to determine the items in dispute within thirty (30) days following the date of submission.  The determination of the Independent Accountant will be final and binding upon the Parties and will not be subject to appeal, absent manifest error, and the Net Closing Cash as determined by the Independent Accountant will be final and binding for purposes of the adjustments referred to in Section 2.7.  (For greater certainty, no Party may appeal a determination made by the Independent Accountant or attempt to dispute, recover, duplicate or adjust any amount which that Party is required to pay or entitled to receive as a result of that determination or the adjustments referred to in Section 2.7 by making a claim for Damages under Article 5.)  The Purchaser and the Vendors (as a group) shall each pay one-half of the fees and expenses of the Independent Accountant, but shall each bear their own costs in presenting their respective cases to the Independent Accountant.
 
(c)
Notwithstanding Article 5 and Section 6.7, the procedure set out in this Section 2.6 for resolving disputes with respect to the calculation of the Net Closing Cash is the sole and exclusive method of resolving those disputes, absent manifest error.  However, this Section 2.6(c) will not:
 
 
(i)
prohibit any Party from commencing litigation to compel specific performance of this Section 2.6 or to enforce the determination of the Independent Accountant; or
 
 
(ii)
prohibit any Party from exercising its rights under Section 5.2 or Section 5.3, as the case may be, if the basis of the dispute could also entitle that Party to make a claim for Damages under clause 5.2(a)(i) or 5.3(a)(i), as the case may be, and (a) that claim is not discovered until after the delivery of the calculation of the Net Closing Cash under Section 2.5(a), or (b) that claim involves the fraudulent act or fraudulent misrepresentation of any other Party.
 
2.7
Post-Closing Adjustments
 
(a)
The Purchase Price will be adjusted if the Net Closing Cash, as finally determined in accordance with Section 2.6, is less than negative Eighty Five Thousand Dollars ($-85,000) (i.e. results in a greater negative amount), the Purchase Price will be decreased, dollar for dollar, by the amount of the difference. The amount by which the Net Closing Cash, as finally determined in accordance with Section 2.6, is less than $-85,000, is referred to as the ”Post-Closing Adjustment Amount”.
 
 
-16-

 

(b)
If the Net Closing Cash, as finally determined in accordance with Section 2.6, is less than $-85,000, the Vendors shall, within five (5) days of the date on which the Net Closing Cash is finally determined in accordance with Section 2.6, forfeit, in accordance with the Vendor Allocation and the Escrow Agreement that number of Payment Shares that are held pursuant to the Escrow Agreement as are equal, determined based on volume weighted average trading price of Mobivity Shares for the ten (10) days prior to the date of forfeiture, to the Post-Closing Adjustment Amount together with interest on that amount calculated from the Closing Date to the date of forfeiture at the Prime Rate.

5.5
Limitation Periods
 
(a)
Notwithstanding the provisions of the Limitation of Actions Act (Nova Scotia) or any other statute, an Indemnified Person may commence Legal Proceedings in respect of Damages arising from any incorrectness in or breach of any representation and warranty described in a notice of claim given under Section 5.6 within the time periods in Section 5.4, at any time on or before the second anniversary of the date upon which the notice is delivered under Section 5.4, and any applicable limitation period is hereby so varied to the full extent permitted by law.
 
 
-50-

 

(b)
The limitation period applicable to any Legal Proceeding relating to a claim in respect of any matter in clauses 5.2(a)(ii), 5.2(a)(iii), 5.2(b) and 5.3(a)(ii) will be solely as prescribed in the Limitation of Actions Act (Nova Scotia).
 
5.6
Notice of Claim
 
(a)
If a Third Party Claim is instituted or asserted against an Indemnified Person, the Indemnified Person shall promptly, but in no event later than sixty (60) days after the commencement or assertion of that Third Party Claim, notify the Indemnifier in writing of the Third Party Claim.  The notice will describe the Third Party Claim in reasonable detail and indicate, if reasonably practicable, the nature and amount of the potential Damages arising therefrom.
 
(b)
If an Indemnified Person becomes aware of a Direct Claim, the Indemnified Person shall promptly notify the Indemnifier in writing of that Direct Claim.  The notice will describe the Direct Claim in reasonable detail and indicate, if reasonably practicable, the nature and amount of the potential Damages arising therefrom.
 
(c)
Notice to an Indemnifier of a Third Party Claim or Direct Claim under this Section 5.6 will constitute assertion of a claim for indemnification against the Indemnifier under this Article 5 and upon receipt of notice, the provisions of Sections 5.7 to 5.9 will apply to any Third Party Claim and the provisions of Section 5.10 will apply to any Direct Claim.
 
(d)
Failure by an Indemnified Person to give timely notice of a Third Party Claim or Direct Claim will not relieve an Indemnifier from the obligation to indemnify the Indemnified Person, unless the Indemnified Person gives notice after the expiration of the time periods under Section 5.4 or the failure to notify materially prejudices the ability of the Indemnifier to exercise its rights under Sections 5.7 to 5.9 with respect to a Third Party Claim.
 
5.7
Defence of Third Party Claims
 
With respect to a Third Party Claim, the Indemnifier may participate in or, by giving notice to that effect to the Indemnified Person not later than sixty (60) days after receipt of notice with respect to that Third Party Claim and, subject to the rights of any insurer or other third party having potential liability therefor, elect to assume the control of the defence of the Third Party Claim at the Indemnifier’s own expense and by the Indemnifier’s own counsel, and the Indemnified Person may participate in the defence of any Third Party Claim assisted by counsel of its choice at its own expense.  If the Indemnifier does not give notice within sixty (60) days after receipt of notice of the Third Party Claim that it has elected to assume the control of the defence of the Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Person may, at its option and assisted by counsel of its choice, assume the defence of or settle or compromise the Third Party Claim without prejudice to its right of indemnification under this Agreement. If the Indemnifier elects to assume the defence of a Third Party Claim under this Section 5.7, the Indemnifier shall not have the right thereafter to contest its liability for that claim with respect to the Indemnified Person.
 
 
-51-

 

5.8
Assistance for Third Party Claims
 
The Indemnifier and the Indemnified Person shall make all reasonable efforts to make available to the Party which is undertaking and controlling the defence of any Third Party Claim (the "Defending Party”),
 
(a)
those employees whose assistance, testimony or presence is necessary to assist the Defending Party in evaluating and in defending any Third Party Claim; and
 
(b)
all documents, records and other materials in the possession of that Party reasonably required by the Defending Party for its use in defending any Third Party Claim,
 
and shall otherwise co-operate in good faith with the Defending Party.  The Indemnifier shall be responsible for all reasonable expenses associated with making those documents, records and materials available and for all reasonable expenses of any employees made available by the Indemnified Person to the Indemnifier hereunder.
 
5.9
Settlement of Third Party Claims
 
(a)
If an Indemnifier elects to assume the defence of any Third Party Claim as provided in Section 5.7, the Indemnifier shall diligently proceed with the defence and shall not, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Person, not to be unreasonably withheld, enter into any compromise or settlement of the Third Party Claim or consent to the entry of any judgment, which would lead to liability or create any other obligation, financial or otherwise, on the Indemnified Person.
 
(b)
If an Indemnifier elects to assume the defence of any Third Party Claim as provided in Section 5.7, the Indemnifier will not be liable for any legal expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnified Person in connection with the defence of that Third Party Claim.  However, if the Indemnifier fails to take reasonable steps necessary to defend diligently that Third Party Claim within thirty (30) days after receiving notice from the Indemnified Person that the Indemnified Person believes on reasonable grounds that the Indemnifier has failed to take reasonable steps, the Indemnified Person may, at its option and assisted by counsel of its choice, defend, settle or compromise the Third Party Claim without prejudice to its right of indemnification hereunder, it being understood that the Indemnified Person shall not, without the prior written consent of the Indemnifier, not to be unreasonably withheld, enter into any compromise or settlement of the Third Party Claim or consent to the entry of any judgment.  The Party controlling the defence of the Third Party Claim shall keep the other Party advised of the defence of the Third Party Claim and consider in good faith recommendations made by the other Party with respect thereto.
 
5.10
Direct Claims
 
With respect to a Direct Claim, the Indemnified Person shall give notice of the Direct Claim to the Indemnifier as provided in Section 5.6.  Upon receipt of that notice, the Indemnifier will then have a period of sixty (60) days within which to respond in writing to the Direct Claim.  The Indemnified Person shall make available to the Indemnifier the information relied upon by the Indemnified Person to substantiate its right to be indemnified, together with all other information as may be reasonably requested by the Indemnified Person.  If the Indemnifier does not respond within that sixty (60) day period, the Indemnifier will be deemed to have rejected that Direct Claim and the Indemnified Person may pursue any remedies available to it.
 
 
-52-

 

5.11
Reductions and Subrogation
 
If the amount of Damages incurred by an Indemnified Person at any time subsequent to the making of an Indemnity Payment is reduced by any recovery, settlement or otherwise under any insurance coverage or under any claim, recovery, settlement or payment by or against any other Person, the Indemnified Person shall promptly repay to the Indemnifier the amount of the reduction (less any costs, expenses (including Taxes) or premiums incurred in connection therewith).  Upon making a full Indemnity Payment, the Indemnifier will, to the extent of that Indemnity Payment, be subrogated to all rights of the Indemnified Person against any third party that is not an Affiliate of the Indemnified Person in respect of the Damages to which the Indemnity Payment relates.  Until the Indemnified Person recovers full payment of its Damages, any and all claims of the Indemnifier against any such third party on account of that Indemnity Payment will be postponed and subordinated in right of payment to the Indemnified Person’s rights against that third party.
 
5.12
Payment and Interest
 
All amounts to be paid by an Indemnifier under this Article 5 will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Prime Rate, calculated and payable monthly, both before and after judgment, with interest on overdue interest at the same rate, from the date that the Indemnified Person gave notice of a claim under Section 5.6 to the date of payment by the Indemnifier to the Indemnified Person.
 
5.13
Agency for Indemnified Persons
 
The Vendors accept each indemnity made by the Purchaser under this Article 5 in favour of each of the Vendors as agent and trustee of that Indemnified Person and may enforce an indemnity in favour of any of the Vendors on behalf of that Indemnified Person.  The Purchaser accepts each indemnity made by the Vendors under this Article 5 in favour of each of the Purchaser’s Indemnified Persons as agent and trustee of that Indemnified Person and may enforce an indemnity in favour of any of the Purchaser’s Indemnified Persons on behalf of that Indemnified Person.
 
5.14
Limitation of Liability and Set-Off
 
(a)
The maximum aggregate amount of liability of each Vendor to the Purchaser’s Indemnified Persons pursuant to this Agreement shall be limited to and shall not exceed the actual fair market value, as determined in accordance with Section 5.14(b) or Section 5.14(c), as applicable, of:  (i) the number of Payment Shares received by that Vendor in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Vendor Allocation, plus (ii) that portion of the Doolin Payment Shares and the BCH Payment Shares directed to be issued to Wallace Doolin and BCH, as applicable, by that Vendor (for certainty calculated in accordance with the Vendor Allocation).
 
(b)
In the event that the Purchaser makes a claim for indemnification under this Article 5 (on its own behalf or for any of the Purchaser’s Indemnified Persons) against any of the Vendors prior to the release of the Escrow Fund to the Vendors, Wallace Doolin and BCH in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement and this Agreement, the Purchaser shall be entitled, as its sole recourse during the period prior to the release of the Escrow Fund to the Vendors, Wallace Doolin and BCH, to set off the amount of the Damages related to such claim against the Escrow Fund by forfeiture of the Payment Shares based on the volume weighted average trading price of Mobivity Shares for the ten (10) days prior to the date of forfeiture, firstly against: (i) the Payment Shares held by the Vendor(s) against whom the Purchaser makes such claim; and (ii) that portion of the Doolin Payment Shares and the BCH Payment Shares issued to Wallace Doolin and BCH, as applicable, by that Vendor(s) (for certainty, calculated in accordance with the Vendor Allocation), and secondly, notwithstanding Section 5.14(a), in the event that the Damages related to such claim exceeds the value of the Payment Shares held by such Vendors and the applicable portion of the Doolin Payment Shares and the BCH Payment Shares, against:  (i) the Payment Shares held by the other Vendors in accordance with the Vendor Allocation as among such other Vendors; and (ii) the Doolin Payment Shares and the BCH Payment Shares in accordance with the Vendor Allocation as among such other Vendors.
 
 
-53-

 

(c)
In the event that the Purchaser makes a claim for indemnification under this Article 5 (on its own behalf or for any of the Purchaser’s Indemnified Persons) against any of the Vendors after the release of the Escrow Fund to the Vendors, Wallace Doolin and BCH in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement and this Agreement, the maximum amount of liability of each Vendor shall be limited to and shall not exceed the fair market value of the number of Payment Shares received by that Vendor calculated as follows:
 
Maximum Liability of a Vendor = V x  (A + (B x A/E)) + P x (A1 + (B x A1/E)
 
Where:
 
V = the volume weighted average trading price of Mobivity Shares for the ten (10) days prior to the date on which the Purchaser makes such claim;
 
A = the number of Payment Shares held by the Vendor against whom the Purchaser makes such claim;
 
B = that number of Doolin Payment Shares and BCH Payment Shares directed to be issued to Wallace Doolin and BCH, as applicable, by the Vendor against whom the Purchaser makes such claim (for certainty calculated in accordance with the Vendor Allocation);
 
E = the total number of Payment Shares released from the Escrow Fund to the Vendor against whom the Purchaser makes such claim (A + A1);
 
P = The proceeds of the sale of any Payment Shares received by the Vendor against whom the Purchaser makes such claim, calculated on an average per share basis
 
A1 = that number of Payment Shares sold by the Vendor against whom the Purchaser makes such claim;
 
(d)
Without limiting Section 5.14(b), the Purchaser may set off and deduct from any amounts payable by the Purchaser to the Vendors under this Agreement the amount of any Damages for which the Purchaser is entitled to be indemnified under this Article 5.  To assert its right to set-off under this Section 5.14(d), the Purchaser must, in the written notice of claim to be provided under Section 5.6, notify the Vendor of its claim for set off.  If, at the time an amount becomes due and payable by the Purchaser to the Vendors, the Purchaser has so notified the Vendors, the Purchaser may set off the amount of Damages referred to in the written notice of claim from the amount payable to the Vendors.
 
(e)
The Parties acknowledge and agree that nothing in this Section 5.14, 5.15 or 5.16 shall limit the liability of Jon McGinley under the Restrictive Covenant Agreement or the Key Employee Agreement, and that such liability shall be determined in accordance with the terms of the Restrictive Covenant Agreement and/or the Key Employment Agreement, as applicable.
 
 
-54-

 

5.15
Exclusion of claims for contribution
 
Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement, the Escrow Agreement or any other document, none of Doolin, BCH or a Vendor shall be entitled to make any claim of contribution or otherwise or receive any payment from any of Doolin, BCH or any other Vendor with respect to any obligation or loss arising or resulting from a claim of indemnity by the Purchaser’s Indemnified Persons.
 
5.16
Exclusion of Other Remedies
 
No Party, on its own behalf or on behalf or any other Person, will have the right to bring any proceeding against any other Party for any misrepresentation, inaccuracy, incorrectness or breach of any representation or warranty contained in this Agreement or any document or certificate to be executed or delivered at Closing as contemplated by this Agreement except pursuant to this Article 5.
