                  assigns. Neither party may assign this Agreement, in whole or
                  in part, without the other party's written consent; provided,
                  however, that: (i) either party may assign this Agreement
                  without such consent in connection with any merger,
                  consolidation, any sale of all or substantially all of such
                  party's assets or any other transaction in which more than
                  fifty percent (50%) of such party's voting securities are

                  is found invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be
                  enforced to the maximum extent permissible, and the other

                  may be construed as creating or constituting a partnership,
                  joint venture or agency relationship between the parties. No
                  failure of either party to exercise or enforce any of its
                  rights under this Agreement will act as a waiver of such
                  rights. This Agreement and its exhibits are the complete and
                  exclusive agreement between the parties with respect to the
                  subject matter hereof, superseding and replacing any and all
                  prior agreements, communications, and understandings, both
                  written and oral, regarding such subject matter. This
                  Agreement may only be modified, or any rights under it waived,
                  by a written document executed by both parties. This Agreement
                  may be executed in any number of counterparts,
