1.6 Effect on Capital Stock. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, at the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of Parent, Sub, the Company or any holder of Company Capital Stock, Company Options or Company Warrants, the following shall occur:

(a) Company Common Stock. Each share of Company Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time and after giving effect to the assumed conversion described in Section 1.6(b)(i) (other than any Dissenting Shares (as defined in Section 1.9 and any shares canceled pursuant to Section 1.6(c)) shall be canceled and extinguished and automatically converted into the right to receive, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth below and throughout this Agreement (including Section 1.10), including, without limitation, the escrow provisions set forth in Article 7: (A) an amount of cash equal to the Cash Exchange Ratio, without any interest thereon, and (B) a fraction of a share of Parent Common Stock equal to the Stock Exchange Ratio.

(b) Preferred Stock.

(i) Company Series A Preferred Stock. Each share of Company Series A Preferred Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will receive the consideration that the Company Common Stock issuable upon conversion thereof would receive under Section 1.6(a) as if such share of Company Series A Preferred Stock converted into Company Common Stock immediately prior to the Effective Time.

(ii) Company Series B Preferred Stock. Each share of Company Series B Preferred Stock issued outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time will be converted automatically into the right to receive an amount of cash (without interest) equal to $8.28.

(c) Cancellation of Parent-Owned and Company-Owned Stock. Each share of Company Capital Stock owned by Parent, the Company or any direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent or the Company immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be automatically

-3-

canceled and extinguished without any conversion thereof and without any further action on the part of Parent or the Company.

(d) Capital Stock of Sub. At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of any of the parties hereto, each share of capital stock of Sub issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be converted into and exchanged for one validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable share of common stock of the Surviving Corporation. Each stock certificate of Sub evidencing ownership of any such shares shall continue to evidence ownership of shares of capital stock of the Surviving Corporation.

(e) Company Options and Company Stock Plan; Treatment of Company Warrants. All Company Options outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, together with the Company’s 1999 Stock Option/Stock Issuance Plan (the “Company Stock Plan”), shall be assumed by Parent in accordance with the provisions set forth below. Issuances of Parent Common Stock and payments of cash upon exercise of Assumed Company Options shall be subject to applicable withholding.

(i) Company Options. Each Company Option outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time, whether vested or unvested, shall, in connection with the Merger be converted into an option (the “Assumed Company Option”) to acquire Parent Common Stock (the “Share Option Portion”) and cash (the “Cash Option Portion”), in accordance with the provisions set forth below. Each Assumed Company Option shall continue to have, and be subject to, the same terms and conditions as were applicable to the Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time (including any repurchase rights or Vesting provisions), subject to the provisions set forth below. It is the intention of the parties that the Share Option Portion of the Assumed Company Options shall qualify following the Effective Time as incentive stock options as defined in Section 422 of the Code to the same extent that such Company Options qualified as incentive stock options immediately prior to the Effective Time, and the provisions of this Section 1.6(e) shall be applied in a manner consistent with this intent.

(1) Share Option Portion. The Share Option Portion of each Assumed Company Option shall (subject to the Vesting provisions thereof) be exercisable for that number of whole shares of Parent Common Stock equal to the product obtained by multiplying the number of shares of Company Common Stock that were issuable upon exercise of such Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time by the Stock Exchange Ratio (rounded down to the nearest whole number of shares of Parent Common Stock) (the “Assumed Option Share Number”). The per share exercise price for each share of Parent Common Stock issuable upon exercise of such Assumed Company Option shall be equal to the product (rounded up to the nearest whole cent) of (1) the quotient obtained by dividing the exercise price per share of Company Common Stock at which such Company Option was exercisable immediately prior to the Effective Time by the Stock Exchange Ratio, multiplied by (2) the quotient obtained by dividing (a) the product of the Reference Value times the Aggregate Stock Consideration (such product, the “Aggregate Reference Value”), by (b) the sum of the Aggregate Remaining Cash Consideration and the Aggregate Reference Value (such sum, the “Aggregate Consideration”).

-4-

(2) Cash Option Portion. The Cash Option Portion of each Assumed Company Option shall (subject to the Vesting provisions of the Assumed Company Option) be exercisable for that amount of cash equal to the product obtained by multiplying the number of shares of Company Common Stock that were issuable upon exercise of such Company Option immediately prior to the Effective Time by the Cash Exchange Ratio (rounded down to the nearest whole cent) (the “Assumed Option Cash Amount” of such Assumed Company Option). The exercise price per dollar of the Cash Option Portion of each Assumed Company Option shall be the quotient (rounded up to the nearest whole cent) obtained by dividing (1) the product of (a) the quotient obtained by dividing the exercise price per share of Company Common Stock at which such Company Option was exercisable immediately prior to the Effective Time by the Stock Exchange Ratio, multiplied by (b) the Assumed Option Share Number, multiplied by (c) the quotient obtained by dividing the Aggregate Remaining Cash Consideration by the Aggregate Consideration, by (2) the Assumed Option Cash Amount of such Assumed Company Option.

(3) Neither the Cash Option Portion nor the Share Option Portion of each unexpired and unexercised Assumed Company Option shall be exercisable independent of the other. The purchase of each share of Parent Common Stock upon exercise of the Share Option Portion of an Assumed Company Option shall be conditioned upon the holder thereof simultaneously exercising (and, accordingly, paying the applicable exercise price) a portion of the Cash Option Portion of the Assumed Company Option that is equal to the quotient obtained by dividing the Cash Exchange Ratio by the Stock Exchange Ratio (rounded up to the nearest whole cent). Similarly, the exercise of an Assumed Company Option for each dollar of the Cash Option Portion shall be conditioned upon the holder thereof simultaneously exercising the Assumed Company Option for an amount of shares of the Share Option Portion equal to the quotient obtained by dividing the Stock Exchange Ratio by the Cash Exchange Ratio (rounded down to the nearest whole share); provided that Assumed Company Options may not be exercised for partial shares of Parent Common Stock.

(4) Unless Parent shall otherwise consent in writing prior to the Effective Time, the Company shall take all actions necessary or advisable to cause all Company Options to remain unchanged except (A) for the conversion into options to purchase shares of Parent Common Stock and rights to receive cash, as provided in this Section 1.6(e), (B) for the effect of the escrow provisions of Section 7.3(c), and (C) that any acceleration of vesting, continuation of vesting after termination of employment or other special vesting (whether with the passage of time, upon the occurrence of certain events or otherwise) that might occur, result from or be related to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Ancillary Agreements, except for the acceleration of vesting, continuation of vesting or other special vesting in effect as of the date hereof and which is set forth on Schedule 1.6(e)(i)(4), shall be prevented from occurring through the modification, in a manner acceptable to Parent, of the applicable Company Option (and any employment or other agreement providing for such acceleration) prior to the date of this Agreement. Prior to the Effective Time, Company shall take all action necessary to effect the transactions contemplated by this Section 1.6(e)(i) under the terms of the Company Stock Plan, all Company option agreements, and any other plan, agreement or arrangement of Company, including, the giving of any notice required by this Section 1.6(e)(i).

-5-

(ii) Treatment of Company Warrants. The Company agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to enter into agreements with the holders of Company Warrants providing for the exercise or cancellation of such Company Warrant, prior to, or contingent upon, the Closing. At the Effective Time, each Company Warrant, whether or not Vested, shall by virtue of the Merger be assumed by Parent. Each Company Warrant so assumed by Parent under this Agreement (an “Assumed Warrant”) will continue to have, and be subject to, the same terms and conditions as provided in the respective warrant agreement governing such Company Warrant immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger (including without limitation Vesting schedules and Vesting commencement dates), including that the number of shares of Parent Common Stock and Merger Cash purchasable upon exercise of each such Assumed Warrant, and exercise price per share of Parent Common Stock shall be as determined pursuant to the terms of such Company Warrant and as the shares underlying the warrant are treated under this Section 1.6.

(f) Maximum Amount of Merger Consideration. Notwithstanding any provision contained herein to the contrary, the maximum amount of cash and Parent Common Stock to be paid and issued (or payable or issuable upon exercise or conversion of Equity Equivalents) in exchange for the acquisition by Parent of all outstanding Company Capital Stock and Equity Equivalents of the Company shall be (i) a cash amount equal to the Aggregate Cash Consideration, and (ii) an amount of Parent Common Stock equal to the Aggregate Stock Consideration.

1.7 Fractional Shares. No fractional share of Parent Common Stock shall be issued or paid by virtue of the Merger. In lieu thereof, each holder of shares of Company Capital Stock that would otherwise be entitled to receive a fraction of a share of Parent Common Stock (after aggregating all fractional shares of Parent Common Stock to be received by such holder at such time) shall be entitled to receive the nearest whole number of shares of Parent Common Stock (with .5 being rounded up). In addition, no fraction of a cent of cash shall be paid by virtue of the Merger. The aggregate cash to be paid to each holder of shares of Company Capital Stock shall be rounded to the nearest whole cent (with .5 being rounded up).

1.8 Escrow.

(a) A portion of the Merger Consideration issuable pursuant to Section 1.6 hereof in respect of shares of Company Capital Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger (excluding Dissenting Shares) equal to the Escrow Stock Percentage in the case of Merger Stock and the Escrow Cash Percentage in the case of Merger Cash, will, without any act of any Company Shareholder, be deposited with the Escrow Agent (such deposited amount, the “Escrow Amount”), such deposit to constitute the Escrow Fund to be governed by the terms of Article 7 (such shares of Parent Common Stock and cash deposited in the Escrow Fund, the “Escrow Shares” and the “Escrow Cash,” respectively). The portion of the Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash, respectively, contributed by each Company Shareholder shall be based on the proportion that the Merger Cash and the Merger Stock to be issued to such Company Shareholder in respect of shares of Company Capital Stock held by such Company Shareholder immediately prior to the Effective Time of the Merger bears to the aggregate Merger Cash and Merger Stock to be issued in respect of all shares of Company Capital Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time of

-6-

the Merger (excluding Dissenting Shares). Set forth opposite each Company Shareholder’s name in Schedule 1.8 delivered prior to the Closing is a preliminary schedule showing the Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash to be contributed by each such Company Shareholder, subject to adjustment for Vesting of Company Options and other occurrences between the date of this Agreement and the Closing Date that affect allocation of Merger Consideration, and adjustment as a result of Dissenting Shares.

(b) With respect to Dissenting Shares, a portion of any amount deemed payable to such dissenting Company Shareholders pursuant to Chapter 13 of California Law equal to the Escrow Percentage shall, upon the conclusion of such process and to the extent consistent with California Law, be withheld by Parent and deposited with the Escrow Agent pursuant to the terms of this Section 1.8(c) (provided, however, that such amount be decreased proportionately if Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash have previously been released from the Escrow Fund to Company Shareholders pursuant to the terms hereof).

(c) As soon as practicable after the Effective Time of the Merger, and subject to and in accordance with the provisions of Article 7 hereof, Parent shall cause to be distributed to the Escrow Agent (i) a certificate or certificates representing the aggregate number of shares of Parent Common Stock included in the Escrow Shares, which shall be registered in the name of the Escrow Agent and (Y) a wire transfer in the amount of the aggregate amount of Escrow Cash. Such shares and cash deposited in the Escrow Fund shall be beneficially owned by the holders on whose behalf such shares and cash were deposited in the Escrow Fund. The Merger Consideration deposited in the Escrow Fund shall be available to compensate Parent as provided in Article 7.

1.9 Dissenting Shares.

(a) Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, any shares of Company Capital Stock held by a holder that has demanded and perfected dissenters’ rights for such shares in accordance with California Law and who, as of the Effective Time, has not effectively withdrawn or lost such dissenters’ rights (“Dissenting Shares”) shall not be converted into or represent the right to receive the consideration set forth in Section 1.6, but the holder thereof shall only be entitled to such rights as are granted by California Law.

(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 1.9(a), if any holder of shares of Company Capital Stock that demands, in accordance with Section 1301 of California Law, that the Company purchase such shares under California Law, shall effectively withdraw or lose (through failure to perfect or otherwise) such holder’s dissenters’ rights, then, as of the later of (i) the Effective Time or (ii) the occurrence of such event, such holder’s shares shall automatically be converted into and represent only the right to receive the consideration set forth in Section 1.6, (without interest) upon surrender to the Company of the certificate representing such shares in accordance with Section 1.10.

(c) The Company shall give Parent (i) prompt notice of its receipt of any written demands for purchase of any shares of Company Capital Stock, withdrawals of such demands, and any other instruments relating to the Merger served pursuant to California Law and (ii) the

-7-

opportunity to participate in all negotiations and proceedings with respect to demands for purchase under California Law. The Company shall not, except with the prior written consent of Parent or as may be required under applicable law, voluntarily make any payment with respect to any demands for purchase of Company Capital Stock, or offer to settle or settle any such demands.

1.10 Exchange Procedures.

(a) Exchange Agent. The Transfer Agent of Parent shall serve as the exchange agent (the “Exchange Agent”) in the Merger.

(b) Parent Common Stock and Cash. As promptly as practicable after the Closing Date, Parent shall make available for exchange in accordance with this Article 1 the Merger Shares and Merger Cash issuable pursuant to Section 1.6 in exchange for outstanding shares of Company Capital Stock (less the Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash to be contributed to the Escrow Fund pursuant to Article 7).

(c) Exchange Procedures. As soon as reasonably practicable after the Effective Time, the Surviving Corporation shall cause to be mailed to each holder of record of a certificate or certificates which immediately prior to the Effective Time represented outstanding shares of Company Capital Stock (the “Certificates”), (i) a letter of transmittal in customary form, reasonably acceptable to Parent and Company (which shall specify that delivery shall be effected, and risk of loss and title to the Certificates shall pass, only upon delivery of the Certificates to the Exchange Agent), (ii) instructions for use in effecting the surrender of the Certificates in exchange for Merger Consideration, and (iii) unless earlier delivered to Parent, a certificate to be signed and delivered by each holder of Company Capital Stock in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit D (the “Shareholder Certificate”). Upon surrender of a Certificate for cancellation to Exchange Agent or to such other agent or agents as may be appointed by Parent together with such letter of transmittal and Shareholder Certificate (unless, in the case of the Shareholder Certificate, such Shareholder Certificate has previously been executed and delivered by the holder), duly completed and validly executed in accordance with the instructions thereto, the holder of such Certificate shall be entitled to receive in exchange therefore the Merger Consideration to which such holder is entitled pursuant to Section 1.6 (less the Escrow Shares and the Escrow Cash to be deposited in the Escrow Fund on such holder’s behalf pursuant to Article 7). Until surrendered, each outstanding Certificate that, prior to the Effective Time, represented shares of Company Capital Stock will be deemed from and after the Effective Time, for all corporate purposes other than the payment of dividends, to evidence only the right to receive the Merger Consideration pursuant to this Article 1.

(d) Distributions With Respect to Unexchanged Shares of Company Capital Stock. No dividends or other distributions with respect to Parent Common Stock that have a record date and distribution date after the Effective Time shall be paid to the holder of any unsurrendered Certificate with respect to the shares of Parent Common Stock represented thereby until the holder of record of such Certificate shall surrender such Certificate pursuant to the terms of this Section 1.10. Subject to applicable law, following surrender of any such Certificate, there shall be paid to the record holder of the certificates representing whole shares of Parent Common Stock issued in exchange therefor, without interest, at the time of such surrender, the amount of dividends or other distributions with a record date and distribution date after the Effective Time theretofore payable (but for the provisions of this Section 1.10(d)) with respect to such whole shares of Parent Common Stock.

-8-

(e) Transfers of Ownership. If any certificate for shares of Parent Common Stock is to be issued pursuant to the Merger in a name other than that in which the Certificate surrendered in exchange therefor is registered, it will be a condition of the issuance thereof that the Certificate so surrendered be properly endorsed and otherwise in proper form for transfer and that the person requesting such exchange will have paid to Parent or any agent designated by it any transfer or other taxes required by reason of the issuance of a certificate for shares of Parent Common Stock in any name other than that of the registered holder of the Certificate surrendered, or that it be established to the satisfaction of Parent or any such agent that such tax has been paid or is not payable.

1.11 Adjustments to Exchange Ratios. The exchange ratios referred to in Section 1.6 shall be adjusted to reflect appropriately the effect of any stock split, reverse stock split, stock dividend (including any dividend or distribution of securities convertible into Parent Common Stock), reorganization, recapitalization, reclassification or other like change with respect to Parent Common Stock occurring on or after the date hereof and prior to the Effective Time of the Merger.

1.12 No Further Ownership Rights in Company Capital Stock. Any and all Merger Consideration issued or paid in exchange of shares of Company Capital Stock in accordance with the terms hereof shall be deemed to have been issued in full satisfaction of all rights pertaining to such shares of Company Capital Stock, and there shall be no further registration of transfers on the records of the Company of shares of Company Capital Stock that were outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time. If, after the Effective Time, Certificates are presented to the Surviving Corporation for any reason, they shall be canceled and exchanged as provided in this Article 1.

1.13 Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Certificates. In the event any Certificates shall have been lost, stolen or destroyed, the Exchange Agent shall issue in exchange for such lost, stolen or destroyed Certificates, upon the making of an affidavit of that fact by the holder thereof, the Merger Consideration and, if applicable, the dividends or distributions payable pursuant to Section 1.10(d) to which the holder of such shares of Company Capital Stock would be entitled under this Article 1; provided, however, that Parent may, in its discretion and as a condition precedent to the issuance thereof, require the owner of such lost, stolen or destroyed Certificates to provide an indemnity or deliver a bond in such sum as it may reasonably direct as indemnity against any claim that may be made against Parent with respect to the Certificates alleged to have been lost, stolen or destroyed.

1.14 Taking of Necessary Action; Further Action. If, at any time after the Effective Time, any further action is necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes of this Agreement or to vest the Surviving Corporation with full right and title to and possession of all assets, property, rights, privileges, powers and franchises of the Company, or to effect the assignment to the Surviving Corporation of any and all Company Intellectual Property created by a founder, employee or consultant of the Company, or to complete and prosecute all domestic and foreign patent filings related to such Company Intellectual Property, the officers and directors of the Surviving Corporation are fully authorized to take, and shall take, all such lawful and necessary or desirable action.

-9-

1.15 Required Withholding. The Company, and on its behalf Parent and the Surviving Corporation, shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from any consideration payable or otherwise deliverable pursuant to this Agreement to any holder or former holder of Company Capital Stock such amounts as may be required to be deducted or withheld therefrom under the Code or under any provision of state, local or foreign tax law or under any other applicable legal requirement. To the extent such amounts are so deducted or withheld, such amounts shall be treated for all purposes under this Agreement as having been paid to the person to whom such amounts would otherwise have been paid.

1.16 No Liability. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article 1, neither the Parent, the Surviving Corporation, nor any party hereto shall be liable to a holder of shares of Parent Common Stock or Company Capital Stock for any amount properly paid to a public official pursuant to any applicable abandoned property, escheat or similar law.

The parties further agree that in the case of claims for indemnification related to disputes regarding the AdSense product of the Company, (A) if the dispute relates solely to the AdSense product, then the Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to be indemnified by the Indemnifying Parties with respect to the expenses of such dispute, and (B) if the dispute relates to the AdSense product of the Company in addition to one or more other matters not directly related to the AdSense product, then the Indemnified Parties shall be entitled to be indemnified by the Indemnifying Parties with respect to the portion of the expenses of such dispute related to the AdSense product only if there is a determination in such dispute that the Indemnifying Parties (or any of them) or the Company prior to the Closing are culpable or liable for damages, and in such case the Indemnifying Parties will be liable for indemnification with respect to the pro rata portion of the of the expenses of such dispute relating to the AdSense product (pro rata based on the portion of the damages that relate to the AdSense product), and the Indemnifying Parties will also be be liable for indemnification with respect to expenses relating to claims that are otherwise subject to indemnification hereunder.

7.3 Escrow Arrangements.

(a) Escrow Fund. As soon as practicable after the Effective Time, by virtue of this Agreement and as partial security for indemnity obligations provided for in Section 7.2 hereof, Parent will deposit with U.S. Bank, National Association (or other institution acceptable to Parent and the Securityholder Agent (as defined in Section 7.5 below)), as Escrow Agent (the “Escrow Agent”), (i) a certificate or certificates (in such denominations as may be requested by the Escrow Agent) representing the Escrow Shares, which certificate(s) shall be registered in the name of the Escrow Agent and (ii) by check or wire transfer, the Escrow Cash to be deposited in the Escrow Fund, as determined pursuant to Section 1.8 and such deposit, together with any accrued interest thereof, shall constitute an escrow fund (the “Escrow Fund”) to be governed by the terms set forth

-59-

herein. The Escrow Agent may execute this Agreement following the date hereof and prior to the Closing, and such later execution, if so executed after the date hereof, shall not affect the binding nature of this Agreement as of the date hereof between the other signatories hereto.

(b) Escrow Period; Distribution upon Termination of Escrow Period. The Escrow Fund shall be in existence immediately following the Effective Time and shall terminate at 5:00 p.m., California time, on the Expiration Date (the “Escrow Period”); provided that the Escrow Period shall not terminate with respect to such amount (or some portion thereof) as is necessary in the reasonable judgment of Parent, subject to the objection of the Securityholder Agent and the subsequent arbitration of the matter in the manner provided in Section 7.4 hereof, to satisfy any unsatisfied claims reasonably described in any Officer’s Certificate delivered to the Escrow Agent prior to termination of such Escrow Period (such an extension of the Escrow Period, a “Pending Claim Extension”); and, provided, further, that on the Expiration Date the Escrow Agent shall distribute to the Escrow Contributors (and in the case of Vested Assumed Options, such options shall be released from the provisions of Section 7.3(c)) the portion of the Escrow Fund that is not necessary (as determined in the preceding proviso) to satisfy such unsatisfied claims. As soon as all such unsatisfied claims, if any, have been resolved, the Escrow Agent shall deliver to the Escrow Contributors the remaining portion of the Escrow Fund (and in the case of Vested Assumed Options, such options shall be released from the provisions of Section 7.3(c)), together with any accrued interest thereon. Deliveries of portions of the Escrow Fund, together with any accrued interest thereon, to the Escrow Contributors pursuant to this Section 7.3(b) shall be made in proportion to their respective original contributions to the Escrow Fund (including contributions pursuant to Section 1.8 as well as Section 7.3(c)) and the allocations of such distributions between Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash shall be in the same proportions as the original contributions were so allocated. Fractional shares shall be dealt with in the same manner as set forth in Section 1.7.

(c) Contribution from Assumed Options.

(i) A portion of the Merger Shares and Merger Cash issuable upon exercise of each Vested Assumed Option equal to the Option Escrow Share Amount and the Option Escrow Cash Amount, respectively, will as of the Effective Time be deemed to be included in the Escrow Fund pursuant to the provisions of this Section 7.3(c), and the holder of such Vested Assumed Option shall be an Escrow Contributor. The Option Escrow Shares and Option Escrow Cash will be deemed to be included in the Escrow Fund for the purposes of (A) determination of the amount of the Escrow Fund held in the Escrow Fund beyond the Expiration Date pursuant to Section 7.3(b), if any, and the allocation of such heldback amount among Escrow Contributors, and (B) the calculation of any distribution out of the Escrow Fund in satisfaction of a claim pursuant to Section 7.3(e), and the allocation of that distribution amount among Escrow Contributors. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Option Escrow Shares and Option Escrow Cash will not be deemed to be included in the Escrow Fund for purposes of allocating interest on Escrow Cash, and distributions related thereto, pursuant to Section 7.3(d)(ii), except to the extent Option Escrow Cash issued upon exercise of such Option is deposited into the Escrow Fund pursuant to Section 7.3(c)(ii), and then only to the extent of interest earned on such deposited cash after the date of such deposit.

-60-

(ii) Upon exercise of a Vested Assumed Option following the Closing and prior to the end of the Escrow Period (as extended by any Pending Claim Extension), if immediately prior to such exercise the Option Escrow Share Amount and the Option Escrow Cash Amount are greater than zero, a percentage of the shares of Parent Common Stock issued and cash paid upon such exercise equal to the Escrow Percentage, but not more than such Option Escrow Share Amount and Option Escrow Cash Amount, shall on behalf of the option holder be deposited with the Escrow Agent and shall be part of the Escrow Fund.

(iii) In the event that a distribution is to be made out of the Escrow Fund pursuant to Section 7.3(e), Option Escrow Shares and Option Escrow Cash shall be treated as Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash for purposes of calculating the allocation of the distribution out of the Escrow Fund among the Escrow Contributors. The portion of the claim amount allocable to the Option Escrow Cash Amount and the Option Escrow Share Amount of a Vested Assumed Option is referred to herein as the “Allocable Claim Amount” of such option. Immediately upon distribution of Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash out of the Escrow Fund pursuant to Section 7.3(e), the option shall no longer be exercisable as to that portion of the option equal to the Allocable Claim Amount.

(d) Protection of Escrow Fund.

(i) The Escrow Agent shall hold and safeguard the Escrow Fund during the Escrow Period, shall treat such fund as a trust fund in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and not as the Property of the Parent and shall hold and dispose of the Escrow Fund only in accordance with the terms hereof.

(ii) At the direction in writing of the Securityholder Agent, the Escrow Cash will be invested in money market funds or government securities. In the absence of written instructions from the Securityholder Agent, Escrow Agent is authorized to invest funds in a money market account at U.S. Bank, National Association. All income earned on the cash in the Escrow Fund shall become part of and be held as an additional portion of the Escrow Fund. For tax reporting and withholding purposes, all income earned on the cash in the Escrow Fund shall be treated as income earned by Parent. The Escrow Agent shall have no duty to confirm or verify the accuracy or correctness of the amount of any Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash deposited with it hereunder.

(iii) Any shares of Parent Common Stock, other equity securities or any cash dividends issued or distributed by Parent after the Effective Time (including shares issued upon a stock split) (“New Common Shares”) in respect of Parent Common Stock in the Escrow Fund that have not been released from the Escrow Fund shall be added to the Escrow Fund and become a part thereof. New Common Shares issued in respect of shares of Parent Common Stock that have been released from the Escrow Fund shall not be added to the Escrow Fund but shall be distributed to the record holders thereof.

(e) Claims Upon Escrow Fund. Upon receipt by the Escrow Agent at any time on or before 5:00 p.m. Palo Alto, California time on the last day of the Escrow Period of a certificate signed in good faith by any officer of Parent (an “Officer’s Certificate”): (A) stating that Parent has

-61-

paid or properly accrued or reasonably anticipated that it will have to pay or accrue Losses that are indemnifiable under Section 7.2, and (B) specifying in reasonable detail the individual items of Losses included in the amount so stated, the date each such item was paid or properly accrued or reasonably anticipated that it will have to pay or accrue and the nature of the misrepresentation, breach of warranty or covenant or other item to which such item is related (including the relevant section number of the Agreement) and the facts underlying such claim, the Escrow Agent shall, subject to the provisions of Section 7.3(f) hereof, deliver to Parent out of the Escrow Fund, as promptly as practicable, Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash held in the Escrow Fund in satisfaction of such claim. Distributions out of the Escrow Fund in satisfaction of any claim pursuant to this Section 7.3(e) shall be subject to the following provisions and limitations:

(i) The dollar amount of distributions shall be allocated between Escrow Cash and Escrow Shares as follows: (X) the Escrow Cash distribution shall be the product of 0.3515986 times the claim amount, and (Y) the Escrow Shares distribution shall be the product of 0.0399016 times the claim amount, and such distribution shall, for purposes of determining the satisfaction of the Indemnified Parties’ rights under this Article 7, be deemed to be a distribution with respect to 100% of the amount of the claim.

(ii) Distributions shall, as applicable pursuant to Section 7.2, be subject to the Deductible Amount.

(iii) Distributions of Escrow Cash and Escrow Shares shall be allocated among Escrow Contributors pro rata based on their respective original contributions to the Escrow Fund of Escrow Cash and Escrow Shares.

(iv) Allocation of distributions shall take into account deemed contributions to the Escrow Fund pursuant to Section 7.3(c) and 7.6.

(v) Parent Common Stock shall be deemed to have a value per share equal to the Reference Value (as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends and the like with respect to such shares) for purposes of determining the amount of Escrow Shares to be distributed out of the Escrow Fund pursuant to Section 7.3(e).

(f) Objections to Claims. At the time of delivery of any Officer’s Certificate to the Escrow Agent, a duplicate copy of such certificate shall be delivered to the Securityholder Agent (as defined in Section 7.5) and for a period of thirty (30) days after such delivery, the Escrow Agent shall make no delivery to Parent of any cash or Parent Common Stock pursuant to Section 7.3(e) hereof unless the Escrow Agent shall have received written authorization from the Securityholder Agent to make such delivery. After the expiration of such thirty (30) day period, the Escrow Agent shall make delivery of cash and shares of Parent Common Stock from the Escrow Fund in accordance with Section 7.3(e) hereof, provided that no such payment or delivery may be made if the Securityholder Agent shall object in a written statement to the claim made in the Officer’s Certificate, and such statement shall have been delivered to the Escrow Agent prior to the expiration of such thirty (30) day period.

-62-

7.4 Resolution of Conflicts; Arbitration.

(a) In case the Securityholder Agent shall so object in writing to any claim or claims made in any Officer’s Certificate, the Securityholder Agent and Parent shall attempt in good faith to agree upon the rights of the respective parties with respect to each of such claims. If the Securityholder Agent and Parent should so agree, a memorandum setting forth such agreement shall be prepared and signed by both parties and shall be furnished to the Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent shall be entitled to rely on any such memorandum and distribute cash and shares of Parent Common Stock from the Escrow Fund in accordance with the terms thereof.

(b) If no such agreement can be reached after good faith negotiation for a period of thirty (30) days, either Parent or the Securityholder Agent may demand arbitration of the matter unless the amount of the damage or loss is at issue in pending Action or Proceeding with a third party, in which event arbitration shall not be commenced until such amount is ascertained or both parties agree to arbitration; and in either such event the matter shall be settled by arbitration conducted by one arbitrator with experience in the area of corporate transactions involving technology companies. Parent and the Securityholder Agent shall mutually agree upon an arbitrator (which shall be independent), provided, that if Parent and Securityholder Agent cannot agree upon an arbitrator within ten (10) Business Days then such arbitrator shall be determined in accordance with the JAMS Rules (as defined below). The arbitrator shall set a limited time period and establish procedures designed to reduce the cost and time for discovery while allowing the parties an opportunity, adequate in the sole judgment of the arbitrator, to discover relevant information from the opposing parties about the subject matter of the dispute. The arbitrator shall rule upon motions to compel or limit discovery and shall have the authority to impose sanctions, including attorneys fees and costs, to the extent as a court of competent law or equity, should the arbitrator determine that discovery was sought without substantial justification or that discovery was refused or objected to without substantial justification. The decision of the arbitrator as to the validity and amount of any claim in such Officer’s Certificate shall be binding and conclusive upon the parties to this Agreement, and notwithstanding anything in Section 7.3(e) hereof, the Escrow Agent shall be entitled to act in accordance with such decision and make or withhold payments out of the Escrow Fund in accordance therewith. Such decision shall be written and shall be supported by written findings of fact and conclusions that shall set forth the award, judgment, decree or order awarded by the arbitrator(s).

(c) Judgment upon any award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Any such arbitration shall be held in San Mateo or Santa Clara Counties, California under the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures then in effect of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (the “JAMS Rules”). For purposes of this Section 7.4(c), in any arbitration hereunder in which any claim or the amount thereof stated in the Officer’s Certificate is at issue, Parent shall be deemed to be the Non-Prevailing Party in the event that the arbitrators award Parent less than the sum of one-half (1/2) of the disputed amount plus any amounts not in dispute; otherwise, the shareholders of the Company as represented by the Securityholder Agent shall be deemed to be the Non-Prevailing Party. The Non-Prevailing Party to an arbitration shall pay its own expenses, the fees of each arbitrator, the administrative costs of the arbitration, and the

-63-

expenses, including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, incurred by the other party to the arbitration.

7.5 Securityholder Agent of the Shareholders.

(a) By virtue of the Company Shareholders’ adoption of this Agreement and approval of the Merger, and without further act of any Company Shareholder, the Company Shareholders shall be deemed to have appointed Jordan Libit as agent and attorney-in-fact (the “Securityholder Agent”) for each Company Shareholder (except such shareholders, if any, holding Dissenting Shares), for and on behalf of the Company Shareholders, to give and receive notices and communications, to authorize delivery to the Indemnified Parties of cash and Parent Common Stock from the Escrow Fund in satisfaction of claims by the Indemnified Parties, to object to such deliveries, to agree to, negotiate, enter into settlements and compromises of, and demand arbitration and comply with orders of courts and awards of arbitrators with respect to such claims, and to take all actions necessary or appropriate in the judgment of the Securityholder Agent for the accomplishment of the foregoing. Such agency may be changed by the Company Shareholders from time to time upon not less than thirty (30) days prior written notice to Parent; provided that the Securityholder Agent may not be removed unless holders of a two-thirds interest of the Escrow Fund agree to such removal and to the identity of the substituted agent. Any vacancy in the position of Securityholder Agent may be filled by approval of the holders of a majority in interest of the Escrow Fund. No bond shall be required of the Securityholder Agent. Notices or communications to or from the Securityholder Agent shall constitute notice to or from each of the Company Shareholders.

(b) The Securityholder Agent shall not be liable for any act done or omitted hereunder as the Securityholder Agent while acting in good faith and in the exercise of reasonable judgment. The Company Shareholders on whose behalf the Escrow Amount was contributed to the Escrow Fund shall severally and not jointly indemnify the Securityholder Agent and hold the Securityholder Agent harmless against any loss, liability or expense incurred without negligence or bad faith on the part of the Securityholder Agent and arising out of or in connection with the acceptance or administration of the Securityholder Agent’s duties hereunder, including the reasonable fees and expenses of any legal counsel retained by the Shareholder Representative.

(c) The Securityholder Agent shall have reasonable access to information about the Company and the reasonable assistance of the Company’s officers and employees for purposes of performing the Securityholder Agent’s duties and exercising its rights hereunder.

7.6 Representative Escrow.

(a) At the Effective Time, by virtue of this Agreement and as partial security for indemnity obligations provided for in Section 7.2 and Section 7.5(b) hereof, Parent will subtract $150,000 in cash from the Escrow Amount (the “Representative Escrow Amount”) and deposit such cash amount with the Escrow Agent, such deposit, together with any accrued interest thereof, to constitute an escrow fund (the “Representative Escrow Fund”) to be governed by the terms set forth herein (provided that such amount shall be deemed to be part of the Escrow Fund for purposes of calculations and allocations relating to the Escrow Fund). At the direction in writing of the

-64-

Securityholder Agent, the Representative Escrow Amount will be invested in money market funds or government securities. In the absence of written instructions from the Securityholder Agent, Escrow Agent is authorized to invest funds in a money market account at U.S. Bank, National Association. All income earned on the cash in the Representative Escrow Fund shall become part of and be held as an additional portion of the Representative Escrow Fund. For tax reporting and withholding purposes, all income earned on the cash in the Representative Escrow Fund shall be treated as income earned by Parent. The Escrow Agent shall have no duty to confirm or verify the accuracy or correctness of the amount of any Escrow Shares and Escrow Cash deposited with it hereunder.

(b) All reasonable fees of the Securityholder Agent and all reasonable costs, attorney’s fees, and expenses incurred by the Securityholder Agent in connection with the performance of its duties hereunder shall be paid out of the Representative Escrow Fund, upon presentation by the Securityholder Agent to the Escrow Agent of an accounting of such fees, costs and expenses, which accounting is subject to Parent’s reasonable agreement, provided, however, that no such claim for fees, costs and expenses shall be paid until the later of the Expiration Date or the end of the last Pending Claim Extensions, if any, to terminate; and provided, further, that in the event the Escrow Agent has received Officer’s Certificate(s) from Indemnified Parties with respect to Losses that exceed the Escrow Amount, the Escrow Agent shall, subject to the provisions of Section 7.3(e) hereof, deliver to Parent out of the Representative Escrow Fund, as promptly as practicable, cash held in the Representative Escrow Fund in an amount equal to such Losses (if such Losses are greater than the amount of cash in the Representative Escrow Fund then the Escrow Agent shall deliver to Parent the entire cash amount in the Representative Escrow Fund); and, provided, further, that, in the case of Pending Claim Extensions, on the Expiration Date the Escrow Agent shall distribute to the Escrow Contributors (and in the case of Vested Assumed Options, such options shall be released from the provisions of Section 7.3(c)) the portion of the Representative Escrow Fund that is not necessary (as determined in the preceding proviso) to satisfy such unsatisfied claims

7.7 Actions of the Securityholder Agent. A decision, act, consent or instruction of the Securityholder Agent with respect to the matters contemplated by Article 7 hereof shall constitute a decision of all the Indemnifying Parties for whom a portion of the Merger Consideration otherwise payable to them is deposited in the Escrow Fund and shall be final, binding and conclusive upon each of such Indemnifying Party, and the Escrow Agent and Parent may rely upon any such decision, act, consent or instruction of a Securityholder Agent as being the decision, act, consent or instruction of each such Indemnifying Party. The Escrow Agent and Parent are hereby relieved from any liability to any person for any acts done by them in accordance with such decision, act, consent or instruction of the Securityholder Agent.

7.8 Third-Party Claims.

(a) In the event Parent becomes aware of a third-party claim which Parent reasonably believes may result in a demand against the Escrow Fund, Parent shall as promptly as practicable notify the Securityholder Agent of such claim; provided, however, that the failure of Parent to promptly provide such notice shall not affect the right of Parent to indemnification

-65-

hereunder, except to the extent such failure is materially prejudicial to the rights of the Company Shareholders under such claim. The Securityholder Agent, as representative for the Company Shareholders, shall be entitled, at the expense of the Company Shareholders payable by the Company Shareholders out of the Representative Escrow Fund (subject to Section 7.6(b)), to participate in any defense of such claim. Parent shall have the right in its sole discretion to settle any such claim; provided, however, that except with the consent of the Securityholder Agent, no settlement of any such claim with third-party claimants shall alone be determinative of the amount of any claim against the Escrow Fund, provided, that any dispute over the amount of such claim shall be resolved pursuant to Section 7.4. In the event that the Securityholder Agent has consented to any such settlement and acknowledged that the claim is a valid claim against the Escrow Fund, the Securityholder Agent shall have no power or authority to object under any provision of this Article 7 to the amount of any claim by Parent against the Escrow Fund with respect to such settlement.

7.9 Escrow Agent’s Duties.

(a) The Escrow Agent shall be obligated only for the performance of such duties as are specifically set forth herein, and as set forth in any additional written escrow instructions which the Escrow Agent may receive after the date of this Agreement which are signed by an officer of Parent and the Securityholder Agent, and may rely and shall be protected in relying or refraining from acting on any instrument reasonably believed to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the proper party or parties. The Escrow Agent shall not be liable for any act done or omitted hereunder as Escrow Agent while acting in good faith and in the exercise of reasonable judgment, and any act done or omitted pursuant to the advice of counsel shall be conclusive evidence of such good faith.

(b) The Escrow Agent is hereby expressly authorized to comply with and obey orders, judgments or decrees of any court of law and arbitrators decisions, notwithstanding any notices, warnings or other communications from any party or any other person to the contrary. In case the Escrow Agent obeys or complies with any such order, judgment or decree of any court or arbitrator decision, the Escrow Agent shall not be liable to any of the parties hereto or to any other person by reason of such compliance, notwithstanding any such order, judgment, decree or arbitrator decision being subsequently reversed, modified, annulled, set aside, vacated or found to have been entered without jurisdiction.

(c) The Escrow Agent shall not be liable in any respect on account of the identity, authority or rights of the parties executing or delivering or purporting to execute or deliver this Agreement or any documents or papers deposited or called for hereunder.

(d) The Escrow Agent shall not be liable for the expiration of any rights under any statute of limitations with respect to this Agreement or any documents deposited with the Escrow Agent.

(e) In performing any duties under the Agreement, the Escrow Agent shall not be liable to any party for damages, losses, or expenses, except for gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the Escrow Agent. The Escrow Agent shall not incur any such liability for

-66-

(A) any act or failure to act made or omitted in good faith, or (B) any action taken or omitted in reliance upon any instrument, including any written statement or affidavit provided for in this Agreement that the Escrow Agent shall in good faith believe to be genuine, nor will the Escrow Agent be liable or responsible for forgeries, fraud, impersonations, or determining the scope of any representative authority. In addition, the Escrow Agent may consult with legal counsel in connection with the Escrow Agent’s duties under this Agreement and shall be fully protected in any act taken, suffered, or permitted by him/her in good faith in accordance with the advice of counsel. The Escrow Agent is not responsible for determining and verifying the authority of any person acting or purporting to act on behalf of any party to this Agreement.

(f) If any controversy arises between the parties to this Agreement, or with any other Person, concerning the subject matter of this Agreement or its terms or conditions, the Escrow Agent will not be required to determine the controversy or to take any action regarding it. The Escrow Agent may hold all documents and Merger Consideration and may wait for settlement of any such controversy by final appropriate legal proceedings or other means as, in the Escrow Agent’s discretion, may be required, despite what may be set forth elsewhere in this Agreement. In such event, the Escrow Agent shall not be liable for damages. Furthermore, the Escrow Agent may at its option, file an action of interpleader requiring the parties to answer and litigate any claims and rights among themselves. The Escrow Agent is authorized to deposit with the clerk of the court all documents and cash and shares of Parent Common Stock held in escrow, except all costs, expenses, charges and reasonable attorney fees incurred by the Escrow Agent due to the interpleader action and which Parent agrees to pay. Upon initiating such action, the Escrow Agent shall be fully released and discharged of and from all obligations and liability imposed by the terms of this Agreement.

(g) Parent shall indemnify and hold Escrow Agent harmless against any and all losses, claims, damages, liabilities, and expenses, including reasonable costs of investigation, counsel fees, and disbursements that may be imposed on the Escrow Agent or incurred by the Escrow Agent in connection with the performance of its duties under this Agreement, including but not limited to any litigation arising from this Agreement or involving its subject matter.

(h) The Escrow Agent may resign at any time upon giving at least thirty (30) days written notice to Parent and the Securityholder Agent; provided, however, that no such resignation shall become effective until the appointment of a successor escrow agent which shall be accomplished as follows: Parent and the Securityholder Agent shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to mutually agree on a successor escrow agent within thirty (30) days after receiving such notice. If Parent and the Securityholder Agent fail to agree upon a successor escrow agent within such time, the Escrow Agent shall have the right to appoint a successor escrow agent authorized to do business in the State of California. The successor escrow agent shall execute and deliver an instrument accepting such appointment and it shall, without further acts, be vested with all the estates, properties, rights, powers, and duties of the predecessor escrow agent as if originally named as escrow agent. The Escrow Agent shall thereupon be discharged from any further duties and liability under this Agreement.

-67-

7.10 Fees. All fees of the Escrow Agent for performance of its duties hereunder shall be paid by Parent. It is understood that the fees and usual charges agreed upon for services of the Escrow Agent shall be considered compensation for ordinary services as contemplated by this Agreement. In the event that the conditions of this Agreement are not promptly fulfilled, or if the Escrow Agent renders any service not provided for in this Agreement, or if the parties request a substantial modification of its terms, or if any controversy arises, or if the Escrow Agent is made a party to, or intervenes in, any Action or Proceeding pertaining to this escrow or its subject matter, the Escrow Agent shall be reasonably compensated for such extraordinary services and reimbursed for all costs, attorney’s fees, and expenses occasioned by such default, delay, controversy or litigation.

7.11 Limitation of Remedies.

(a) Except as provided in Section 7.11(b) and (c), the Escrow Fund shall be the exclusive right and remedy of Parent and the other Indemnified Parties for claims pursuant to Section 7.2.

(b) Notwithstanding the limitation set forth in Section 7.11(a), Jordan Libit, Jason Liebman, Eytan Elbaz, Brad Stein, Gil Elbaz and Adam Weismann (the “Indemnifying Officers”) shall, after the end of the Escrow Period, indemnify Parent and the other Indemnified Parties pursuant to Section 7.2 for Losses incurred by them directly or indirectly resulting from any inaccuracy or breach of any of the representations and warranties of the Company set forth in Sections 2.3, 2.8 and 2.11 hereof; provided, however, that the sum of (i) the aggregate liability of the Indemnifying Officers as a result of their allocable share of claims made and satisfied by distributions out of the Escrow Fund pursuant to Section 7.3(e) plus (ii) the liability of the Indemnifying Officers pursuant to this Section 7.11(b) for indemnification claims made after the end of the Escrow Period, shall not exceed the aggregate value of the Indemnifying Officers’ contributions to the Escrow Fund (valuing each Escrow Share contributed by the Indemnifying Officers at the Reference Value for this purpose, as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends and the like with respect to such shares); provided, however, that the Indemnifying Officers may satisfy claims pursuant to this Section 7.11(b) by tendering cash or shares of Parent Common Stock (which shall be deemed to have a value per share equal to the Reference Value, as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends and the like with respect to such shares), at the option of such Indemnifying Officers. The liability of the Indemnifying Officers after the end of the Escrow Period pursuant to this Section 7.11(b) shall be several and not joint and shall be pro rata as among them based on the Indemnifying Officers’ respective original contributions to the Escrow Fund (including any Option Escrow Cash Amounts and Option Escrow Share Amounts).

(c) Notwithstanding the limitations set forth in Sections 7.11(a) and 7.11(b), the Indemnifying Officers shall indemnify Parent and the other Indemnified Parties pursuant to Section 7.2 for Losses incurred by them directly or indirectly resulting from any Fraudulent Breach regardless of the timing and amount of the claims relating thereto; provided, that such indemnification obligation shall terminate with respect to any such claim on the termination of the applicable statute of limitations relating to such claim; and, provided, further, that the Indemnifying

-68-

Officers’ aggregate liability for claims for indemnification in respect of Fraudulent Breaches (including liability as a result of the Indemnifying Officer’s allocable shares of distributions out of the Escrow Fund in respect of such claims as well as the Indemnifying Officers’ liability outside of the Escrow Fund pursuant to this Section 7.11(c)) shall not (except as expressly provided below) exceed the aggregate value of the Aggregate Cash Consideration and the Aggregate Stock Consideration received by the Indemnifying Officers pursuant to the Merger (assuming for this purpose that all Company Options, Company Warrants and Equity Equivalents held by the Indemnifying Officers have been exercised or converted into Company Common Stock prior to the Effective Time, and ascribing to each Merger Share a value equal to the Reference Value, as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends and the like with respect to such shares), less taxes actually paid by the Indemnifying Officers in respect of their receipt of the Merger Consideration; provided, further, that the Indemnifying Officers may satisfy claims pursuant to this Section 7.11(c) by tendering cash or shares of Parent Common Stock (which shall be deemed to have a value per share equal to the Reference Value, as adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends and the like with respect to such shares). The liability of the Indemnifying Officers outside of the Escrow Fund pursuant to this Section 7.11(c) for Fraudulent Breaches shall be several and not joint and shall be pro rata as among them based on the Indemnifying Officers’ respective original contributions to the Escrow Fund (including any Option Escrow Cash Amounts and Option Escrow Share Amounts); provided, however that in the event that an Indemnifying Officer cannot, with commercially reasonable diligence, be located by Parent for proceedings under this Article 7, such pro rata liability shall be pro rata as among the Indemnifying Officers who can be so located. The foregoing provisions of this Section 7 notwithstanding, nothing in this Article 7 shall limit the liability of an Indemnifying Officer in respect of a Fraudulent Breach if such Indemnifying Officer has actual knowledge (without applying the constructive knowledge principles set forth in the definition of “knowledge” in Article 10) of such Fraudulent Breach.

(d) The Indemnifying Officers, by adopting this Agreement and approving the Merger, acknowledge and agree that they are severally and not jointly liable for indemnification outside of the Escrow Fund pursuant to Sections 7.2 and this Section 7.11.

7.12 Remedies Not Limited by Information and Investigation. The representations, warranties, covenants and obligations of the Company, and the rights and remedies that may be exercised by the Indemnified Parties pursuant to Article 7 hereof, shall not be limited or otherwise affected by or as a result of any information furnished to, or any investigation made by or knowledge of, any of the Indemnified Parties (unless such information is provided in the Company Disclosure Schedule with respect to representations and warranties made as of the date of this Agreement; provided that to the extent such information listed on the Company Disclosure Schedule is expressly noted as being disclosed for informational purposes only, it shall not modify the applicable representation or warranty).
