(ii) The Indemnifying Party will have the right to defend the Indemnified Party against the Third Party Claim with counsel of its choice satisfactory to the Indemnified Party so long as (A) the Indemnifying Party notifies the Indemnified Party in writing within fifteen (15) days after the Indemnified Party has given notice of the Third Party Claim that the Indemnifying Party has elected to assume the defense and will indemnify the Indemnified Party from and against the entirety of any Adverse Consequences the Indemnified Party may suffer resulting from, arising out of, relating to, in the nature of, or caused by the Third Party Claim, (B) the Indemnifying Party provides the Indemnified Party with evidence reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party that the Indemnifying Party will have the financial resources to defend against the Third Party Claim and fulfill its indemnification obligations hereunder, and (C) the Indemnifying Party conducts the defense of the Third Party Claim actively and diligently. (iii) So long as the Indemnifying Party is conducting the defense of the Third Party Claim in accordance with Section 8(d)(ii) above, (A) the Indemnified Party may retain separate co-counsel at its sole cost and expense and participate in the defense of the Third Party Claim, (B) the Indemnified Party will not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to the Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party (not to be withheld unreasonably), and (C) the Indemnifying Party will not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to the Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party (not to be withheld unreasonably).

(e) Escrow Claims. If any claim for indemnification is made by the Buyer pursuant to this Section 8 prior to the expiration of the escrow under the Escrow Agreement, the Buyer shall apply to the Escrow Agent for reimbursement of such claim in accordance with the provisions of this Section 8(e) and the provisions of the Escrow Agreement. Except in cases of intentional fraud and willful misconduct, and except for breaches of representations and warranties contained in Section 3(k) occurring after the expiration of the Indemnity Fund pursuant to the terms of the Escrow Agreement, or as provided below in this paragraph, the rights of the Buyer to make claims against the Indemnity Fund in accordance with this Section 8(e) shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the Buyer for any claim for indemnification made by the Buyer pursuant to Section 8(b)(i) above. If the Indemnity Fund has a value less than the Floor and is insufficient to satisfy a claim for indemnification pursuant to this Section 8(e), then the Seller shall be obligated to pay (in addition to any cash or Indemnity Shares in the Indemnity Fund) additional cash to satisfy the unsatisfied portion of such claim ("Additional Indemnity Payments"), but only up to the amount, if any, of the Floor. For purposes of this Section 8(e), the following definitions shall apply: "Fair Market Value" means the value of the relevant block of Indemnity Shares based on the average of the high and low closing prices of such block on the relevant date of calculation (i) as reported on the Nasdaq system, if the Indemnity Shares are then listed on Nasdaq, (ii) if the Indemnity Shares are not then so listed, but are then listed on SWX New Market of the SWX, as reported by the SWX New Market of the SWX, after applying the CHF-USD exchange rate, as determined at 5 p.m., Swiss time, on such day, by swissfirst Bank, AG; provided that if such Indemnity Shares are not so reported or listed, then the Fair Market Value shall be the net proceeds actually received by the Escrow Agent in connection with the sale of such block. "Floor" means an amount (but not less than zero) determined on the date of the actual release of any Indemnity Shares in respect of any claim (a "Paid Claim") made by the Buyer pursuant to this Section 8(e) (the "Calculation Date") and shall be equal to, the result obtained by subtracting (x) the sum of (A) the Liquid Stock Value of any block of Liquid Stock (or cash in lieu thereof) paid in respect of any previous Paid Claim and (B) any Additional Indemnity Payments made by the Seller in connection with any previous Paid Claim from (y) the sum of (A) the Liquid Stock Value of each block of Liquid Stock in the Escrow Account on the Calculation Date (or cash in lieu thereof) and (B) the Fair Market Value of each block of Locked-up Stock in the Escrow Account on the Calculation Date. "Liquidation Date" means the date on which any block of Indemnity Shares is considered to be Liquid Stock; provided that the Liquidation Date shall not be considered to have occurred until there is a Third Party Institution willing to provide a Market Opinion and to sell such block of Liquid Stock if requested by the Seller. 40 37 "Liquid Stock" means any block of Indemnity Shares that is freely tradable on the SWX New Market and as to which the lock-up restrictions set forth in the lock-up agreement to be entered into pursuant to Section 7(a)(vii) and EXHIBIT D of this Agreement have expired. "Locked-up Stock" means any block of Indemnity Shares that is either not freely tradable on the SWX New Market or as to which the lock-up restrictions set forth in the lock-up agreement to be entered into pursuant to Section 7(a)(vii) and EXHIBIT D of this Agreement have not expired. "Liquid Stock Value" means the value of any block of Liquid Stock, determined as follows: (a) if the Seller requests a Market Opinion with respect to a block of Liquid Stock on or prior to the fifth (5th) business day after the applicable Liquidation Date, and the Seller receives a Positive Market Opinion, then, if the Seller requests that the Third Party Institution sell the relevant block of Liquid Stock, the Liquid Stock Value shall be equal to the net proceeds received by the Seller in connection with the sale of such block of Liquid Stock by such Third Party Institution; provided that until the actual sale of such block of Liquid Stock, the Liquid Stock Value shall be equal to the Fair Market Value of such block on the Calculation Date; (b) if the Seller requests a Market Opinion with respect to a block of Liquid Stock on or prior to the fifth (5th) business day after the applicable Liquidation Date, and the Seller receives a Positive Market Opinion, then, if the Seller elects not to place the relevant block of Liquid Stock for sale with a Third Party Institution, then the Liquid Stock Value shall be equal to the Fair Market Value of such block of Liquid Stock as of the date of the Positive Market Opinion; (c) if the Seller requests a Market Opinion with respect to a block of Liquid Stock on or prior to the fifth (5th) business day after the applicable Liquidation Date, and the Seller does not receive a Positive Market Opinion, then the Liquid Stock Value shall be equal to the Fair Market Value of such block on the Calculation Date; (d) if the Seller has the right to request a Market Opinion with respect to a block of Liquid Stock and fails to make such request, then the Liquid Stock Value shall be the Fair Market Value of such block on the date the Seller could have exercised such right; (e) if at any time the Seller elects to sell any block of Liquid Stock, then the Liquid Stock Value shall be equal to the Fair Market Value of such block on the date two (2) business days after the Seller instructs the Escrow Agent to sell such block. "Market Opinion" means the opinion of any Third Party Institution indicating whether there is a market for the relevant block of Liquid Stock over the twenty (20) day trading period following the date of such opinion at a price not less than 30% of the Fair Market Value of such block. "Positive Market Opinion" means the opinion of any Third Party Institution indicating that there is a market for the relevant block of Liquid Stock over the twenty (20) day trading period following the date of such opinion at a price not less than 30% of the Fair Market Value of such block. "Third Party Institution" means either swissfirst Bank, AG or such other financial institution reasonably acceptable to the Parties. The Seller shall have the right to request a Market Opinion with respect to a block of Liquid Stock at any time prior to the fifth (5th) business day after the relevant Liquidation Date. 41 38 (f) Other Remedies. Except in cases of fraud and willful misconduct, this Section 8 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy for breaches of representations, warranties, pre-Closing covenants contained in this Agreement and any other matter arising out of or related to the subject matter of this Agreement; provided however, neither Party shall be foreclosed from and each Party shall be permitted to pursue (i) any and all equitable relief or other equitable remedies (including, without limitation specific performance) that may be available to such Party, and (ii) any statutory, equitable, common law or other remedy that may be available to such Party for breach of any post-Closing covenants contained herein (including the covenants contained in Section 6), the covenants contained in Sections 5(h), 5(i) and 5(k) herein, the Ancillary Agreements, the transition services agreement contemplated by Section 6(k), and the sub-lease or other arrangement relating to the Redwood Shores Facility, if any, as contemplated by Section 6(k). 9.

BUYER: E-CENTIVES, INC. By: /s/ Kamran Amjadi ----------------------------------------- Kamran Amjadi Chairman and Chief Executive Officer SELLER: INKTOMI CORPORATION By: /s/ Richard Pierce ----------------------------------------- Richard Pierce Executive Vice President 46 43 ================================================================================ ANNEX A --------------- DETERMINATION OF EARNOUT SHARES This Annex A contains the criteria used to determine whether Seller is entitled to receive any of the Earnout Shares, as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement dated January 18, 2001 (the "AGREEMENT"), by and between e-centives, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "BUYER"), and Inktomi Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the "SELLER"), to which this Annex A is attached. Any capitalized term not defined in this Annex A shall have the meaning assigned to the term in the Agreement. For the Seller to be entitled to receive Earnout Shares, both the Revenues Test and the Product Performance Test set forth below must be met for the First Earnout Period or the Second Earnout Period, as the case may be, as more particularly described below. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Buyer agrees to operate the Division in good faith and will take no action to circumvent the Earnout. I. REVENUES TEST A. The term "BUSINESS" as used in this Annex A means the business and assets of the Division acquired pursuant to the Agreement. Except as specifically provided in this Annex A, the Business shall not include any other business or assets of any other business entity owned or acquired by Buyer during the First Earnout Period or the Second Earnout Period, as the case may be, unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties. B. For purposes of this Annex A, revenue ("REVENUE") of the Division for the relevant period shall be determined in the following manner. All determinations of Revenue shall be made in accordance with GAAP, applied in a manner consistent with the financial statements of the Buyer, and shall be net of any returns or bad debt expense. 1. The Buyer shall determine the revenues from the licensing or sale of any of the products or functionality included in the Business acquired from the Seller (the "ACQUIRED PRODUCTS/FUNCTIONALITY"), and offered by the Buyer on a stand-alone basis. All of these amounts shall be included in "Revenue." 2. In the case of Acquired Products/Functionality offered by the Buyer as incorporated into or in conjunction with other products or services of the Buyer such that the revenues solely attributable to the Acquired Products/Functionality cannot readily be determined by the Buyer ("COMBINED PRODUCTS/FUNCTIONALITY"), the Buyer shall make a good faith, reasonable allocation of the revenues realized from the licensing or sale of Combined Products/Functionality between the Acquired Products/Functionality and other products or services of the Buyer based upon the respective functions performed by each, the number of lines of software code and/or other appropriate method applicable to a particular product or functionality, in each case acting in good faith and consistently with other similar allocations made by the Buyer hereunder or for other purposes. "Revenue" shall include the portion of the net revenues from the licensing or sale of Combined Products/Functionality so allocated to the Acquired Products/Functionality. 3. In the case of each contract entered into within the First Earnout Period or the Second Earnout Period, as the case may be, where the Buyer has a legal right to receive revenue from the licensing or sale of Acquired Products/Functionality or Combined Products/Functionality after the applicable period, but where such right is not considered revenue for the applicable period under applicable GAAP revenue recognition principles ("UNREALIZED CONTRACTS"), the Buyer shall determine the applicable revenues (under 47 44 paragraph 1 or 2 above, as applicable) which it is legally entitled to receive under such Unrealized Contracts without further action on the part of the customer (such as the exercise of any options to purchase products beyond those legally committed to in the contract). The Buyer shall then (i) apply a reasonable discount to such revenues to reflect the fact that they will be received after the end of the applicable period, which discount shall be based on the Buyer's cost of funds at such time (or, if not determinable, the cost of funds for similarly situated companies as reasonably determined by the Buyer's financial adviser), (ii) reduce such revenues by a probability factor that reflects any applicable uncertainties regarding the Buyer's ability to perform the Unrealized Contract and become entitled to the revenues and (iii) reduce such revenues by a probability factor that reflects any applicable uncertainties or externalities regarding the ability of a customer who is a party to such Unrealized Contract to perform the Unrealized Contract and entitle the Buyer to realize revenues, it being understood that all of the foregoing reductions shall be multiplicative in application, and not additive. The resulting amount (the "CONTRACT VALUE") for each Unrealized Contract shall be included in "Revenue." 4. A computation of the Revenues for the applicable period will be prepared by the Buyer in the form of a report in accordance with the foregoing principles and delivered to the Seller within forty-five (45) days after completion of the applicable period. 5. The Seller would become entitled to receive the First Earnout Shares if Revenues equaled or exceeded $12 million during the First Earnout Period. The Seller would become entitled to receive the Second Earnout Shares if Revenues equaled or exceeded $15 million during the Second Earnout Period. II. PRODUCT PERFORMANCE TEST In order for any of the Earnout Shares to vest, all products included in the Acquired Assets, including all hardware and software (the "ACQUIRED SYSTEM ASSETS") must operate and perform at 99% average availability per month; but only to the extent that Buyer shall not have modified or adversely affected the operations or performance of the Acquired System Assets. For each month that the Acquired System Assets fails to meet the performance test, the Seller shall lose the right to 1/12 of the Earnout Shares. 48 45 ================================================================================ ANNEX B --------------- BASE PRICE ADJUSTMENTS THE FOLLOWING REDUCTIONS TO THE BASE PRICE SHALL BE CUMULATIVE: I. Failure to Assign Contracts Base Price Adjustments The Base Price shall be reduced by two (2) percentage points (e.g., from 19.9% to 17.9%) if the iwon.com Contract is not assigned to the Buyer at the Closing. The Base Price shall be reduced by one (1) percentage point (e.g., from 19.9% to 18.9%) for each of the first two (2) Key Contracts (not including the iwon.com Contract) that are not assigned to the Buyer at the Closing. The Base Price shall be reduced by one and one half (1.5) percentage points (e.g., from 17.9% to 16.4%) for each additional Key Contract (not including the iwon.com Contract) that is not assigned to the Buyer at the Closing. The maximum reduction to the Base Price pursuant to this Part I (Failure to Assign Contracts Base Price Adjustments) shall be 6.5 percentage points (based on five (5) Key Contracts not assigned to the Buyer at the Closing) or, if the iwon.com Contract is one of such five (5) Key Contracts that are not assigned to the Buyer at the Closing, 7.5 percentage points. II. Employee Base Price Adjustments If 60% or less but more than 50% of the Division Employees who receive offers of employment from the Buyer accept such offers (and have not repudiated such offers as of the Closing) then the Base Price shall be reduced by one and one-half percentage points (e.g., 19.9% to 18.4%). If less than 50% of the Division Employees who receive offers of employment from the Buyer accept such offers (and have not repudiated such offers as of the Closing) then the Base Price shall be reduced by three percentage points (e.g., 19.9% to 16.9%). 49
