(e) The Company shall not assume, and AMD shall retain all obligations to fund or otherwise shall provide all benefits in respect of or payable under, AMD's Plans and Programs.

(ii) Unless LLC (acting on behalf of the Company) elects the option set forth in subsection (iii) of this Section no later than the Closing Date, AMD shall take any steps necessary to permit the Transferred Employees to receive a distribution of their accrued benefits from the AMD Saving Plan as a result of transactions contemplated by this Agreement, provided the terms of such plan would permit such a distribution.

(iii) LLC (on behalf of the Company) may elect at its option no later than the Closing Date, in lieu of the distribution provided for in subsection (ii) of this Section, as soon as practicable following receipt by AMD and the Company of favorable determination letters relating to the AMD Saving Plan or Company DC Plan being qualified under the applicable provision of the Code, to have AMD cause the trustee of the AMD Saving Plan to transfer assets representing the full account balances of the Transferred Employees, together with the appropriate net investment return (including unrealized appreciation or depreciation) thereon, if applicable, reduced by any necessary benefit or withdrawal payments made in respect of Transferred Employees prior to the actual date of transfer, to the trustee of the Company DC Plan. The assets to be transferred from the trust under the AMD Saving Plan pursuant to this Section 8.4(f) shall be in cash or, to the extent mutually agreed to by AMD and the Company, a combination of cash, securities and other property; provided, however, that any outstanding loans attributable to the accounts of the Transferred Employees shall be transferred in kind, if transferred, the actual amount transferred from the trust under the AMD Saving Plan shall be adjusted to reflect any normal and reasonable administrative expenses properly attributable to the accounts of the Transferred Employees during the period following the Closing Date. At the time the assets that are held in the trust with respect to the Transferred Employees under the AMD Saving Plan are paid to the trust under the Company DC Plan, the Company DC Plan shall assume all liabilities of the AMD Saving Plan for the applicable benefits so transferred, and such transfer shall be in full discharge of all obligations of the AMD Saving Plan in respect thereof. If elected, this transfer shall take place as soon as practicable.

Notwithstanding the above, the amount transferred to the trust under the Company DC Plan shall in no event be less than the amount necessary to satisfy the requirements of Section 414(1) of the Code and ERISA. If the Company elects such option, on or immediately prior to the Closing Date, the Company shall (i) establish or designate one or more of the Company DC Plan, and furnish AMD with the most recent favorable determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service relating to the Company DC Plan or certification, in a manner reasonably acceptable to AMD, that the Company DC Plan is qualified under applicable provisions of the Code as promptly as practicable, (ii) take any necessary action to qualify the Company DC Plan under the applicable provisions of the Code and (iii) make all filings and submissions to appropriate governmental agencies required of it in connection with a transfer of assets as described herein. (g) LLC shall cause the Company to take all action reasonably necessary and appropriate to provide that Transferred Employees shall, effective as of the Hire Date (but subject to subsections (i) and (j)), be entitled to participate in plans or programs established or 30 amended by the Company that provide coverages and benefits which in the aggregate are substantially comparable to the coverages and benefits provided by the Plans and Programs of AMD in which such Transferred Employees participated immediately prior to the Closing Date. (h) To the extent the Company is unable to establish health and/or dental plans and programs in accordance with this Section, the parties mutually agree to cooperate to execute an arrangement pursuant to which AMD will use its Reasonable Efforts to provide such health and/or dental benefits to Transferred Employees for a transitional period not to exceed sixty (60) days following the Closing Date at a cost consistent with the historical costs associated with such benefit plans plus certain administrative fees. The cost of such coverage and fees shall promptly be paid to AMD by the Company. (i) Subject to restrictions and limitations imposed by Applicable Law, LLC shall cause the Company to (i) make participation in employee welfare benefit plans available to Transferred Employees on the Hire Date or as soon as practicable thereafter and (ii) cause its employee welfare benefit plans and programs to provide coverage to the Transferred Employees without regard to any waiting period, evidence and requirement of insurability, preexisting condition, actively at work requirement or exclusion or limitation (except to the extent and in the manner any such waiting period, evidence and requirement of insurability, preexisting condition, actively at work requirement or exclusion or limitation applies immediately prior to the Closing). (j) Subject to restrictions and limitations imposed by Applicable Law, LLC agrees to cause the Company to (i) for purposes of determining eligibility to become a participant in its employee pension benefit plans and programs and its employee welfare benefit plans and programs, to treat a Transferred Employee's service with AMD or any of its predecessors or affiliates since last date of hire through the Hire Date as service with the Company, (ii) for purposes of determining vesting in its employee pension benefit plans and programs, to treat a Transferred Employee's service with AMD or any of its predecessors or affiliates since last date of hire through the Hire Date as service with the Company and (iii) for purposes of vacations, seniority and other programs and benefits which consider service, to treat a Transferred Employee's service with AMD or any of its predecessors or affiliates since last date of hire through the Hire Date as service with the Company. (k) AMD agrees to provide LLC and the Company with such records as LLC may reasonably request regarding service of and participation by the CPD Employees prior to the Hire Date in AMD's Plans and Programs. (l) No provision in this Agreement shall create any third party beneficiary rights in any CPD Employee or Transferred Employee (or any beneficiaries, dependents, or collective bargaining representatives thereof), with respect to the terms and conditions of employment of any such CPD Employee or Transferred Employee, including, but not limited to, the type or level of compensation or benefits provided by LLC, the Company or AMD. (m) The Company shall be liable for continuation of health care coverage required by Code Section 4980B and ERISA Sections 601 through 608 ("COBRA") with respect to any "qualifying event" (as defined in Section ----- 4980B(f)(3) of the Code) with respect to a 31 Transferred Employee (and covered family members of a Transferred Employee) occurring after such employee's respective Hire Date, including termination. AMD shall be liable for health care continuation required by COBRA for any of its employees who are not Transferred Employees. (n) AMD agrees that it will pay any and all amounts due with respect to any accrued vacation balance as of the Closing Date and accrued personal paid absences as of the Closing Date to (i) any Transferred Employee on the Closing Date and (ii) any Inactive Employee, Visa Employee or International Employee on the date that such Inactive Employee, Visa Employee or International Employee becomes a Transferred Employee. 8.5 Additional Audited Financial Statements. --------------------------------------- AMD shall use its Reasonable Efforts to deliver to LLC an audited balance sheet of the Business as of December 27, 1998 and audited income statements and statement of cash flows of the Business for the years ended December 28, 1997 and December 27, 1998, each prepared in accordance with GAAP, by September 30, 2000. 8.6 Noncompetition. -------------- (a) AMD agrees that, for the period from the Closing to the date which is the second anniversary of the Closing Date, neither AMD nor any of AMD's controlled Affiliates will, directly or indirectly, for its own benefit or as agent of another, carry on or own, manage or operate, participate in, or control the management or operation of, or allow its name to be used in, the Communications Products Business (i) in the State of California, (ii) in the State of Texas and (iii) in the United States of America. For purposes of this Section 8.6, the "Communications Products Business" shall mean the design, manufacture and sale of (1) communications infrastructure equipment including, but not limited to, Subscriber Line Interface Circuits (SLIC), Subscriber Line Audio processing Circuits (SLAC), and integrated circuits designed for and dedicated to the communication of voice or voice and data over public and private communications networks, (2) integrated circuits designed for and dedicated to communication of voice or voice and data over cordless telephones, (3) integrated circuits designed for and dedicated to communication of voice or voice and data over wireless telephones (specifically excluding data only internet access devices); and (4) integrated circuits designed for Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) equipment intended for ATU-C applications. (b) Nothing contained herein shall (i) limit AMD (A) from acquiring (including through a merger) or investing in any business, development arrangement or joint venture whose primary activities do not constitute a Communications Products Business, or (B) from, directly or indirectly, holding or making investments in securities of any business listed on a national securities exchange, admitted to trading in an automated quotations market traded generally on the over-the-counter market, so long as AMD's direct or indirect holdings do not exceed 5% of the outstanding equity securities thereof, or (ii) apply to the activities of any Person merging with or into AMD, or acquiring, directly or indirectly, the equity securities of, or control of, AMD, provided that such activities have been conducted prior to such merger or acquisition by such Person. 32 (c) AMD recognizes and agrees that compliance with the covenant contained in this Section 8.6 is necessary to protect LLC and the Company and that a breach by AMD of any of the covenants set forth in this Section 8.6 could cause irreparable harm to LLC, that LLC's remedies at law in the event of such breach would be inadequate, and that, accordingly, in the event of such breach, a restraining order or injunction or both may be issued against AMD, in addition to any other rights and remedies which are available to LLC. If this Section 8.6 is more restrictive than permitted by the law of any jurisdiction in which LLC seeks enforcement hereof, this Section 8.6 shall be limited to the extent required to permit enforcement under such laws. In particular, the parties intend that the covenants in the preceding portions of this Section 8.6 shall be construed as a series of separate covenants, one for each location specified. Except for geographic coverage, each such separate covenant shall be deemed identical in terms. If, in any judicial proceeding, a court shall refuse to enforce any of the separate covenants deemed included in this Section 8.6, then such unenforceable covenant shall be deemed eliminated from these provisions for the purpose of those proceedings to the extent necessary to permit the remaining separate covenants to be enforced. If any court of competent jurisdiction shall determine the foregoing covenant to be unenforceable with respect to the term or the scope of the subject matter or geography covered thereby, then such covenant shall nevertheless be enforceable by such court against the other party upon such shorter term or within such lesser scope as may be determined by such court to be reasonable and enforceable. 8.7 Distributor Price Adjustments. The Company will, within 15 days ----------------------------- after the end of the month in which the Closing occurs, provide AMD with a statement of distributor price adjustments for the period on and before the Closing Date. AMD will promptly pay the Company the amount of the distributor price adjustments for the period on and before the Closing Date. 8.8 Required Consents. To the extent that any Required Consent is not ----------------- obtained on or before the Closing Date, AMD will use its Reasonable Efforts for a reasonable period of time following the Closing to obtain such Required Consent as soon as practicable after the Closing Date. ARTICLE IX. TAX MATTERS 9.1 Tax Returns Through the Closing Date; Cooperation. ------------------------------------------------- (a) AMD shall include the income of the Company on AMD's consolidated federal income Tax Returns for all periods through the Closing Date and timely pay any federal income Taxes attributable to such income. All such Tax Returns (i) will be filed when due in accordance with all applicable laws and (ii) will be true and complete in all material respects. The Company shall furnish Tax information to AMD for inclusion in AMD's federal consolidated income Tax Return for the period that includes the Closing Date in accordance with AMD's past custom and practice. The income of the Company shall be apportioned to the period up to and including the Closing Date and the period after the Closing Date by closing the books of the Company as of the end of the Closing Date. 33 (b) AMD shall prepare and file with the appropriate authorities all Tax Returns of the Company not covered by Section 9.1(a) hereof for all taxable periods of the Company ending on or prior to the Closing Date ("Pre-Closing ----------- Periods"), and shall timely pay all Taxes due with respect to such Tax Returns. ------- All such Tax Returns (i) will be filed when due in accordance with all applicable laws and (ii) will be true and complete in all material respects. (c) LLC shall cause the Company to prepare and file with the appropriate authorities all Tax Returns of the Company for all taxable periods beginning after the Closing Date ("Post-Closing Periods") and all complete -------------------- taxable periods that include, but do not end on, the Closing Date ("Straddle -------- Periods"), and shall timely pay all Taxes due with respect to such Tax Returns; ------- provided, however, that (i) LLC shall not permit the Company to file a Tax Return in respect of a Straddle Period without AMD's prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, and (ii) AMD shall reimburse the Company for any Taxes owed by the Company with respect to the portion of any Straddle Period related to the Pre-Closing Period. For purposes of allocating Taxes to the portion of any Straddle Period related to the Pre-Closing Period, to the extent permitted by law and administrative practice, the Straddle Period shall be treated as closing on (and including) the Closing Date. In the case of any Taxes that are payable for a Straddle Period that is not treated under the preceding sentence as closing on the Closing Date, the portion of such Tax related to the Pre-Closing Period shall be deemed to be: (i) in the case of real, personal and intangible property Taxes ("Property Taxes") of the Company -------------- for the Pre-Closing Period, the amount of such Tax for the Straddle Period shall be equal to the amount of such Property Taxes for the entire Straddle Period multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days during the Straddle Period that are in the Pre-Closing Period and the denominator of which is the number of days in the Straddle Period, and (ii) the Taxes of the Company other than Property Taxes for the Pre-Closing Period shall be computed as if such taxable period ended as of the close of business on the Closing Date. (d) AMD, the Company, and LLC shall reasonably cooperate and shall cause their respective Affiliates, officers, employees, agents, auditors and representatives reasonably to cooperate, in preparing and filing all Tax Returns relating to Taxes, including maintaining and making available to each other all records necessary in connection with Taxes and in resolving all disputes and audits with respect to all taxable periods relating to Taxes. In that connection, as soon as practicable, but in any event within 45 days after it is requested by LLC or AMD after the Closing Date, the other party will deliver to the requesting party such information and data concerning the pre-Closing operations of the Company and make available such knowledgeable employees of the Company as such requesting party may reasonably request, including providing information and data required by the requesting party's customary tax and accounting questionnaires, in order to enable the requesting party to complete and file all forms and reports which it may be required to file as to the operations of the Company through the Closing Date or to otherwise enable the requesting party to satisfy its internal accounting, tax and other legitimate requirements. In addition to the foregoing, AMD and LLC agree, and LLC agrees to cause the Company (i) to use the respective party's Reasonable Efforts to properly retain and maintain all records related to Taxes of the Company for all Pre-Closing Periods until such time as the other party agrees (which agreement shall not be unreasonably withheld) that such retention and maintenance is no longer necessary (but in no event shall such retention be required for more 34 than five years), and (ii) to allow LLC and AMD, as the case may be, and their respective agents and representatives (and agents and representatives of their affiliates), at times and dates mutually acceptable to the parties, to inspect, review and make copies of such records as the requesting party may deem necessary and appropriate from time to time, such activities to be conducted during normal business hours and at the requesting party's expense. 9.2 Tax Indemnification. ------------------- (a) AMD hereby indemnifies each LLC Indemnified Party against and agrees to hold each LLC Indemnified Party harmless from any (w) Tax of the Company described in clause (i) of the definition of Tax related to a Pre- Closing Period or the pre-Closing portion of any Straddle Period, (x) Tax described in clause (ii) or (iii) of the definition of Tax, (y) Tax of the Company resulting from a breach of the provisions of Section 3.13 or Article IX, and (z) liabilities, costs, expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable expenses of investigation and attorneys' fees and expenses), losses, damages, assessments, settlements or judgments arising out of or incident to the imposition, assessment or assertion of any Tax described in (w), (x) or (y), and any liability as transferee (the sum of (w), (x), (y), and (z) being referred to herein as a "Tax Loss"). (b) With respect to any claim that is made by any taxing authority which, if successful, might result in an indemnity payment to LLC or any of its affiliates indemnified hereunder (a "Tax Claim") (other than a Tax Claim --------- relating to Taxes of the Company for a Straddle Period), AMD shall, at its sole expense control all proceedings, including but not limited to audits, taken in connection with such Tax Claim (including selection of counsel) and, without limiting the foregoing, may in its sole discretion pursue or forego any and all administrative appeals, proceedings, hearings and conferences with any taxing authority with respect thereto, and may, in its sole discretion, either pay the Tax claimed and sue for a refund where applicable law permits such refund suits or contest the Tax Claim in any permissible manner; provided, however, that AMD shall not take any position or enter into any settlement with respect to any such proceeding which materially adversely affects the tax liability of LLC, any of its Affiliates, or, on or after the Closing Date, the Company (including but not limited to the basis of the Company in the CPD Assets and the allocation of such basis), without the prior written consent of LLC. With respect to any such Tax Claims as to which AMD asserts control, AMD shall not assert that such Tax Claim (or portion thereof) is not within the ambit of Section 9.2(a). AMD and LLC shall jointly control all proceedings taken in connection with any Tax Claim relating to Taxes of the Company for a Straddle Period. In no case shall LLC, the Company, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, stockholders, agents or representatives settle or otherwise compromise any Tax Claim without AMD's written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Neither party shall settle a Tax Claim relating to Taxes of the Company for any Straddle Period without the other party's prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. LLC, the Company, and each of their respective Affiliates shall cooperate with AMD in contesting any Tax Claim, which cooperation shall include, without limitation, the retention and (upon AMD's reasonable request) the provision to AMD of records and information which are reasonably relevant to such Tax Claim, and making employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information or 35 explanation or any material provided hereunder or to testify at proceedings relating to such Tax Claim. (c) Upon payment by any LLC Indemnified Party of any Tax Loss, AMD shall discharge its obligation to indemnify LLC Indemnified Party against such Tax Loss by payment to LLC an amount equal to the amount of such Tax Loss; provided, however, that if LLC provides AMD with written notice of a Tax Loss at least 60 days prior to the date on which the relevant Tax Loss is required to be paid by any LLC Indemnified Party, AMD shall discharge its obligation to indemnify LLC against Tax Loss by paying, as directed by LLC, an amount equal to the amount of such Tax Loss. Any payment pursuant to this Section 9.2 shall be made not later than 60 days after receipt by AMD of written notice from LLC in accordance with the foregoing proviso or stating that any Tax Loss has been incurred by a LLC Indemnified Party and the amount thereof and of the indemnitee payment requested. The payment by a LLC Indemnified Party of any Tax Loss shall not relieve AMD of its obligation under this Section 9.2. (d) Any claim of any LLC Indemnified Party (other than LLC) under this Section may be made and enforced by LLC on behalf of such LLC Indemnified Party. 9.3 Refunds. AMD shall be entitled to any refunds or credits ------- (including any interest paid or credited with respect thereto) in respect of any liability for any Tax of AMD or any of its Affiliates (including, without limitation, the Company), for any Tax periods or portion thereof ending on or before the Closing Date (including any Taxes allocated to such period under Section 9.1(c) hereof) or for which AMD is otherwise liable under this Agreement. The Company shall be entitled to any refunds or credits (including any interest paid or credited with respect thereto) in respect of any liability for any Tax of the Company or any of its Affiliates, for any Tax periods or portion thereof beginning after the Closing Date (including any Taxes allocated to such period under Section 9.1(c) hereof) and for which AMD does not have an indemnification obligation under this Agreement. Each party shall cause any amount to which the other party is entitled under this Section 9.3, but which is received or credited to the party not so entitled or any of such party's Affiliates, at any time after the Closing Date, to be paid to the party so entitled in immediately available funds promptly after receipt (or, if the amount of the credit or refund is applied against any other liability of the party not so entitled, within ten days of the notice of such application). 9.4 Conduct of Business on Closing Date. On the Closing Date, LLC ----------------------------------- shall cause the Company to conduct its business in the ordinary course in substantially the same manner as presently conducted and shall not permit the Company to effect any extraordinary transactions (other than any such transactions expressly required by applicable law or by this Agreement) (or any Ancillary Agreement) that could result in Tax liability for the Company in excess of the Tax liability associated with the conduct of its business in the ordinary course. 9.5 Tax Sharing Agreements. AMD shall cause the provisions of any Tax ---------------------- sharing agreement between AMD and any of its Affiliates (other than the Company), on the one hand, and the Company, on the other hand, to be terminated on or before the Closing Date. 36 9.6 Changes to Elections, Etc. Without the prior written consent of ------------------------- LLC, none of AMD, the Company and any Affiliate of AMD shall, to the extent it may affect or relate to the Company, make or change any Tax election, change any annual Tax accounting period, adopt or change any method of Tax accounting, file any amended Tax Return, enter into any closing agreement, settle any Tax claim or assessment, surrender any right to claim a Tax refund, consent to any extension or waiver of the limitations period applicable to any Tax claim or assessment or take or omit to take any other action, if any such action or omission would have the effect of materially increasing the Tax liability of the Company, LLC or any Affiliate of LLC in respect of any Post-Closing Period. Without AMD's prior written consent, LLC shall not cause or permit the Company and any other Affiliate of LLC to make or change any Tax election, change any annual Tax accounting period, adopt or change any method of Tax accounting, file any amended Tax Return, enter into any closing agreement, settle any Tax Claim or assessment, surrender any right to claim a Tax refund, consent to any extension or waiver of the limitations period applicable to any Tax claim or assessment or take or omit to take any other action, if such action or omission would have the effect of materially increasing the Tax liability or materially reducing any Tax asset of AMD or any of its Affiliates in respect of any Pre- Closing Period. 9.7 Characterization as Price Adjustment. All amounts paid pursuant ------------------------------------ to this Agreement by one party to another party (other than interest payments) shall be treated by such parties as an adjustment to the Stock Purchase Price. 9.8 Allocation of Sales Price. Within sixty days after the Closing ------------------------- Date, LLC shall provide AMD with its proposed allocation of the sale price to the CPD Assets. LLC and AMD agree to cooperate in good faith to reach an agreed allocation of federal income tax basis to the CPD Assets. LLC and AMD shall file all Tax Returns in a manner which is consistent with the federal income tax treatment of the transaction set forth herein or determined pursuant to this provision. 9.9 Texas Transfer Tax Matters. LLC and AMD intend to treat the -------------------------- transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements as an "occasional sale" within the meaning of section 151.304 of the Texas Limited Sales, Excise and Use Tax Act, and AMD will treat such transactions consistently therewith on the return required to be filed it for Texas Limited Sales, Excise and Use Tax purposes for the taxable period to which such transactions relate. 9.10 Tax Treatment. LLC and AMD agree that the transactions ------------ contemplated by this Agreement and the Reorganization Agreement are intended to constitute a taxable sale of the CPD Assets by AMD and agree to treat such transactions consistently therewith for all income tax purposes, unless otherwise required by an applicable taxing authority (which requirement is not initiated by AMD). 37 ARTICLE X. INDEMNIFICATION; SURVIVAL OF REPRESENTATIONS, ETC. 10.1 Survival of Representations, Etc. The covenants, representations -------------------------------- and warranties contained herein shall survive the Closing Date until, and claims based upon or arising out of such representations and warranties, as well as any claims based upon or arising out of any covenants and agreements herein or made hereunder, may be asserted at any time before, 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on the first anniversary of the Closing Date, at which time, such covenants, agreements, representations and warranties shall expire and terminate, provided, however, that (i) the representations and warranties of AMD respecting Taxes set forth in Section 3.13 shall survive the Closing for the applicable statute of limitations, at which time such representations and warranties shall expire and terminate; (ii) the obligation of AMD to indemnify LLC for any loss arising out of any Retained Liabilities pursuant to Section 10.2(a)(i), shall survive the Closing without limitation as to time; (iii) the obligation of LLC to indemnify AMD for any loss arising out of the Assumed Liabilities or for the ownership and operation of the Business or the Company from and after the Closing, in each case pursuant to Section 10.2(a)(ii), shall survive the Closing without limitation as to time; (iv) the obligation of AMD to indemnify LLC for any loss arising out of Intellectual Property Liabilities pursuant to Section 10.2(a)(i)(C) shall survive the Closing without limitation as to time; and (v) the covenants and agreements of AMD or LLC under this Agreement to be performed after Closing Date shall survive the Closing, to the extent specifically provided herein (as applicable, the "Survival Period"). The termination of the --------------- representations, warranties, covenants and agreements provided herein shall not affect the rights of a party in respect of any claim made by such party in a writing received by the other party prior to the expiration of the Survival Period, nor shall it affect the rights of a party in respect of any claim made by such party at any time hereafter in respect of any Assumed Liabilities or Retained Liabilities. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, indemnification for breaches of representations, warranties, covenants and agreements related to Taxes shall be covered exclusively by Article IX of this Agreement. 10.2 Indemnification. --------------- (a) General. ------- (i) Subject to Section 10.1, subsequent to the Closing Date, AMD shall indemnify LLC, its Affiliates, and each of their respective partners, officers, directors, employees, stockholders and agents (the "LLC---Indemnified Parties") against, and hold each of LLC Indemnified ------------------------- Parties harmless from, any Losses incurred by any such LLC Indemnified Party, that are incident to, arise out of, are in connection with, or are related to, whether directly or indirectly, (A) the breach of any warranty, representation, covenant or agreement of AMD contained in this Agreement, (B) the Retained Liabilities (other than those described in clause (m) of the definition of Retained Liabilities) or (C) Intellectual Property Liabilities. 38 (ii) Subject to Section 10.1, subsequent to the Closing Date, LLC shall indemnify AMD, its Affiliates, and each of their respective partners, officers, directors, employees, stockholders and agents (the "AMD --- Indemnified Parties") against, and hold each of AMD Indemnified Parties ------------------- harmless from, any Losses incurred by such AMD Indemnified Party, that are incident to, arise out of, are in connection with, or are related to, whether directly or indirectly, (A) the breach of any warranty, representation, covenant or agreement of LLC contained in this Agreement, (B) the Assumed Liabilities (except for those Liabilities with respect to which any LLC Indemnified Party is entitled to indemnification from AMD pursuant to Section 10.2(a)(i)(A)) or (C) the ownership and operation of the Business or the Company from and after the Closing. (b) Procedure For Claims. If a claim for Losses (a "Claim") is to be -------------------- ----- made by a Person entitled to indemnification hereunder, the Person claiming such indemnification (the "Indemnified Party") shall give written notice (a "Claim ----------------- ----- Notice") to the indemnifying Person (the "Indemnifying Party") as soon as ------ ------------------ practicable after the Indemnified Party becomes aware of any fact, condition or event which may give rise to Losses for which indemnification may be sought under this Section 10.2. The failure of any Indemnified Party to give timely notice hereunder shall not affect rights to indemnification hereunder, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party demonstrates actual damage caused by such failure. In the case of a Claim involving the assertion of a claim by a third party (whether pursuant to a lawsuit or other legal action or otherwise, a "Third-Party Claim"), (A) the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled, if it so ------------------ elects, at its own cost, risk and expense, (1) to take control of the defense and investigation of such Third-Party Claim and (2) to pursue the defense thereof by appropriate actions or proceedings, including, without limitation, to employ and engage attorneys of its own choice reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party to handle and defend the same, and (B) the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled (but not obligated), if it so elects, to compromise or settle such claim, which compromise or settlement shall be made only with the written consent of the Indemnified Party, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld. In the event the Indemnifying Party elects to assume control of the defense and investigation of such lawsuit or other legal action in accordance with this Section 10.2(b), the Indemnified Party may, at its own cost and expense, participate in the investigation, trial and defense of such Third-Party Claim. If the Indemnifying Party fails to assume the defense of such Third-Party Claim in accordance with this Section 10.2 within 30 calendar days after receipt of the Claim Notice, the Indemnified Party against which such Third-Party Claim has been asserted shall (upon delivering notice to such effect to the Indemnifying Party) have the right to undertake, at the Indemnifying Party's cost, risk and expense, the defense, compromise and settlement of such Third-Party Claim on behalf of and for the account of the Indemnifying Party; provided that such Third-Party Claim shall not be compromised or settled without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. In the event the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of the claim, the Indemnifying Party shall keep the Indemnified Party reasonably informed of the progress of any such defense, compromise or settlement, and in the event the Indemnified Party assumes the defense of the claim, the Indemnified Party shall keep the Indemnifying Party reasonably informed of the progress of any such defense, compromise or settlement. The Indemnifying Party shall be liable for any settlement of any Third-Party Claim effected pursuant to and in accordance with this Section 10.2 and for any final judgment (subject to any right of 39 appeal), and the Indemnifying Party agrees to indemnify and hold harmless each Indemnified Party from and against any and all Losses by reason of such settlement or judgment. 10.3 Threshold; Limitations on Liability. ----------------------------------- (a) Except as provided in Sections 10.3(c) and 10.3(d), LLC Indemnified Parties shall not be entitled to recover for any Losses pursuant to this Article X until such time as the Losses claimed by LLC Indemnified Parties in the aggregate exceed $6,000,000, and then only to the extent of such excess. (b) Except as provided in Section 10.3(c), the maximum aggregate amount of Losses for which AMD Indemnifying Parties shall be liable pursuant to this Article X shall be $60,000,000. (c) The thresholds and limitations set forth in this Section 10.3 shall not apply with respect to any Claim by an Indemnified Party with respect to: (i) the Retained Liabilities (in the case of a Claim by a LLC Indemnified Party); or (ii) the breach of any covenant or agreement to be performed after the Closing. (d) With respect to the obligation of AMD Indemnifying Parties to indemnify LLC Indemnified Parties for any Intellectual Property Liabilities pursuant to Section 10.2(a)(i)(C), the maximum amount of Losses for which AMD Indemnifying Parties shall be liable pursuant to this Article X shall be $10,000,000. The threshold set forth in Section 10.3(a) shall not apply in the case of a Claim by an LLC Indemnified Party with respect to any Intellectual Property Liabilities. 10.4 Insurance Proceeds. To the extent that any Claim is covered by ------------------ insurance held by the Indemnified Party, such Indemnified Party shall be entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Article X only with respect to the amount of Losses that are in excess of the cash proceeds received by such Indemnified Party pursuant to such insurance. If such Indemnified Party receives such cash insurance proceeds prior to the time such Claim is paid, then the amount payable by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to such Claim shall be reduced by the amount of such insurance proceeds. If such Indemnified Party receives such cash insurance proceeds after such Claim is paid, then upon receipt by the Indemnified Party of any cash proceeds pursuant to such insurance with respect to such Claim, such Indemnified Party shall repay any portion of such amount which was previously paid by the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Party in satisfaction of such Claim. 10.5 Indemnification as Exclusive Remedy. Subsequent to the Closing, ----------------------------------- with respect to any matter as to which indemnification is provided pursuant to Article IX or X of this Agreement, such indemnification shall be the sole remedy available to the indemnified party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereto may exercise their rights under this Agreement and applicable law to equitable remedies, including, without limitation, specific performance and injunction. 40 ARTICLE XI. MISCELLANEOUS 11.1 Termination. This Agreement may be terminated and the ----------- transactions contemplated hereby abandoned (a) by mutual agreement of AMD and LLC or (b) by either AMD or LLC if the conditions to such parties' obligations set forth in Articles VI and VII, as the case may be, have not been satisfied (unless waived by the party entitled to the benefit thereof), and the Closing has not occurred on or before September 30, 2000 without liability of either party hereto; provided, however, that no party shall be released from liability hereunder if this Agreement is terminated and the transactions abandoned by reason of the failure of such party to have performed its obligations hereunder. In the event that a condition precedent to a party's obligations is not satisfied, nothing contained herein shall be deemed to require any party to terminate this Agreement, rather than to waive such condition precedent and proceed with the transactions contemplated hereby. Except as provided above, if this Agreement is terminated and the transactions contemplated hereby are not concluded as described above, this Agreement will become void and of no further force and effect; provided, however, that the Confidentiality Agreement shall survive any termination of this Agreement. 11.2 Assignment.
