Since January 1, 2011, neither Sellers nor Navarre have delayed or postponed the payment of such Accounts Payable, other than in the ordinary course of business consistent with past practices; provided, however, that except as set forth in Section 5.4 hereof, neither the Sellers nor Navarre make any representation or warranty with respect to Geneon Entertainment USA.

ARTICLE 4
REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF BUYER

To induce Sellers to enter into this Agreement, Buyers, jointly and severally, represent and warrant to Sellers that the following are true and correct on the date hereof and will be true and correct as of the Closing Date:

4.1 Organization. Each of Buyer GP, Buyer ALP and Buyer FLP is a limited liability company validly existing and in good standing under the laws of Texas.

4.2 Authority; Binding Nature of Agreement.

(a) The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Buyers and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement have been duly authorized by all necessary action on the part of Buyers.

(b) Buyers have full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to carry out the transactions contemplated hereby.

(c) This Agreement has been duly and validly executed and delivered by Buyers and is the legal, valid and binding obligation of Buyers, enforceable in accordance with its respective terms, except as such may be limited by bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or similar laws affecting creditors153 rights generally, and by general equitable principles.

4.3 No Conflict. The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Buyers does not and will not conflict with, constitute a default under, or create in any party the right to accelerate, terminate, modify, or cancel, or require any notice under, (i) any provision of the Certificate of Formation or other governing documents of either of any the Buyers or (ii) any Applicable Law to which any of the Buyers may be subject.

14


4.4 Compliance with Securities Laws. Each Buyer is an "accredited investor" as that term is defined in Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and is acquiring the Partnership Interests only for such Buyer153s own account, for investment purposes only and not with a view to the distribution thereof. Buyers will not sell, offer for sale, pledge, transfer or otherwise dispose of the Partnership Interests or any interest therein except in compliance with the Securities Act and any other applicable Laws. Buyers acknowledge that the Partnership Interests have not been registered under the Securities Act or the blue sky laws of any state. Buyers have been given access to information regarding the Companies (including the opportunity to meet with management and other representatives of the Companies) and have utilized such access to the Buyers153 satisfaction. Buyers are experienced and knowledgeable in financial and business matters, capable of evaluating the merits and risks of purchasing the Partnership Interests and do not need or desire the assistance of a knowledgeable representative to aid in the evaluation of such risks (or, in the alternative, the Buyers have used a knowledgeable representative in connection with the Buyers153 decision to purchase the Partnership Interests).

4.5 Brokers or Agents. Buyers have not employed or dealt with any brokers, consultants or investment bankers in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby for which Sellers or Navarre will have any liability.

4.6 Disclosure. To the knowledge of Buyers, no representation or warranty by Buyers in this Agreement and no statement contained in this Agreement or in any document delivered or to be delivered pursuant hereto contains or will contain an untrue statement of material fact or omits or will omit to state any material fact necessary to make the statements herein or therein contained, in light of the circumstances under which made, not misleading; it being understood that as used in this subparagraph "material" means material to any individual statement or omission and in the aggregate as to all statements and omissions.

ARTICLE 5
COVENANTS

5.1 Books and Records. From and after the Closing, Buyers will, and will cause the Companies to, provide Sellers and their representatives with reasonable access and assistance, upon prior notice and at reasonably acceptable times, for any reasonable purpose, including but not limited to (a) the preparation or filing of any Tax Returns or filings required by or advisable with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or (b) defending any claim in respect of which a Notice of Claim has been served, during normal business hours, to all books and records of the Companies, including, but not limited to, accounting and Tax records, sales and purchase documents, notes, memoranda, and any other electronic or written data ("Records") pertaining or relating to the period prior to or after the Effective Time, provided that Buyers shall have the right to cause a representative of Buyers to be present during the time in which Sellers and their representatives have access to such Records. To the extent deemed necessary by Sellers with respect to their affairs, Sellers may retain copies of such Records prior to returning the originals to Buyers, or, as soon as practicable after Closing, Buyers will provide to Sellers, at Sellers153 expense, copies of all or any portion of such Records as reasonably requested by Navarre. Unless otherwise consented to in writing by the other party, no party will, for a period of seven (7) years following the date hereof or such longer period as retention thereof is required by

15


applicable Law, destroy, alter or otherwise dispose of (or allow the destruction, alteration or disposal of) any of the Records without first offering to surrender to the other party such Records.

5.2 Announcements. The Parties agree that no press release or other public statement concerning the negotiation, execution and delivery of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby will be issued or made without the prior written approval of the Navarre and Buyers (which approval will not be unreasonably withheld), except as required by any applicable law or regulation.

5.3 Filings; Cooperation.

(a) Buyers and Sellers will use their commercially reasonable efforts to obtain any authorizations, consents, approvals of governments and governmental agencies in order to consummate and make effective the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Prior to the Closing, the Parties will proceed in good faith to make such filings and take such other actions as may be commercially reasonable to satisfy the conditions to Closing set forth in Sections 6.1 and 6.2.

(b) The Parties will, on request, cooperate with one another by furnishing any additional information, executing and delivering any additional documents and instruments, including contract assignments, and doing any and all such other things as may be reasonably required by the Parties or their counsel (i) to consummate or otherwise implement the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or (ii) make any filings required by or advisable with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

5.4 Payments to Geneon Entertainment USA. Navarre shall be solely responsible for any payments due to Geneon Entertainment USA for final reconciliation of amounts due under the Distribution Agreement, dated April 18, 2008, by and between Productions Company and Geneon Entertainment USA (as amended), including the excess of returns holdback against actual returns and the net adjustment of actual versus reported sales, the aggregate of which is currently $1,083,059 and such amounts shall not be included in the Accounts Payable.

5.5 Third Party Consents. Any transfer or assignment of a contract to Buyers as a result of the transactions contemplated under this Agreement that requires the consent or approval of a third party shall be made subject to such consent or approval being obtained. In the event any such consent or approval is not obtained on or prior to the Closing Date, each of Sellers and Navarre shall continue to use all reasonable efforts to obtain any such consent or approval after the Closing Date until such time as such consent or approval has been obtained, and each of Sellers and Navarre will cooperate with Buyers in any lawful and economically feasible arrangement to provide that Buyers shall receive the interest of Sellers in all benefits under any such contract, including without limitation performance by Sellers or Navarre, as applicable, as agent if economically feasible; provided, however, that Buyers shall undertake to pay or satisfy the corresponding liabilities for the enjoyment of such benefit to the extent Buyers would have been responsible therefor hereunder if such consent or approval had been obtained as of the Closing Date.

16


5.6 Employee Bonuses. In the event that Navarre pays its employees a bonus for fiscal 2011 pursuant to its published company-wide bonus plan, Navarre shall pay the employees of the Companies that were (i) employees of the Companies as of the Closing Date and (ii) still employed by the Companies as of the date Navarre pays such bonus to its employees, a bonus that such employees would have received under its published company-wide bonus plan as if the Companies were still owned by the Sellers and Navarre; provided, however, such bonus shall be pro rated based upon the number of months that the Sellers and Navarre owned the Companies during fiscal 2011. For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing clause shall not be deemed to include any spot bonuses, special individual achievement bonuses or any other like individual bonuses that could have been awarded outside of Navarre153s published company-wide bonus plan.

5.7 Fukunaga Bonus; Employment Agreement. On the Funding Date, Navarre and the Sellers shall pay to Gen Fukunaga a cash bonus of $250,000 (subject to all applicable withholding taxes) pursuant to the terms of Section 5 of that certain Amended and Restated Employment Agreement, among Mr. Fukunaga, the Companies and Navarre, dated May 27, 2010 (the "Employment Agreement"). In addition to the foregoing, Buyers shall deliver a termination of the Employment Agreement (a "Termination"), pursuant to which Mr. Fukunaga releases the Companies and Navarre and Navarre and the Sellers release Mr. Fukunaga from any obligations thereunder as of the Closing Date.

5.8 Release of Guaranty; Lease. Following the Closing Date, Buyers and the Companies shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to secure a release of the Letter of Credit and/or any remaining obligations of Navarre under the Guaranty Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, commercially reasonable efforts by the Buyers and the Companies in the foregoing sentence shall under no circumstance mean that the Buyers or the Companies shall be required to make any kind of payment to the Landlord or any of its affiliates other than as set forth in the Lease. In addition, for as long as the Letter of Credit and/or Guaranty Agreement, or any modification, amendment or replacement thereof, remain outstanding, or Navarre has any obligations thereunder, (a) neither Buyers nor the Companies shall effect any material modification of the Lease without the prior written consent of Navarre; and (b) Buyers and the Companies shall provide to Navarre copies of (i) year-end audited balance sheets, statements of income and cash flow, and statements of member153s equity within 120 days of the last business day of each fiscal year, and (ii) quarterly unaudited balance sheets, statements of income and cash flow, and statements of member153s equity, for such quarter and year-to-date, within 45 days of the last business day of each quarter.

5.9 Potential Independent Contractor Liability. Following the Closing Date, Buyers and the Company shall fulfill their obligations set forth in the Letter of Undertaking, attached hereto as Exhibit E (the "Letter of Undertaking") and use commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with Sellers and Navarre to mitigate any such liability. In connection with any claims, settlements, statements, communications, or negotiations with the Internal Revenue Service or any state revenue agency relating to the incorrect classification of any Person designated as an independent contractor rather than an employee prior to the Closing Date, at the option of Navarre, the provisions of Section 7.3 shall apply as if the Buyers and Companies were the "Indemnified Party" and Navarre and the Sellers were the "Indemnifying Party" in so far as Navarre and the Sellers shall control of the defense and investigation and employ and engage

17


attorneys of its own choice to handle, defend and settle such matters, subject to the rights of the Indemnified Party thereunder.

(i) any breach or violation of the covenants made in this Agreement by any Seller and Navarre (which will not include the representations and warranties set forth in Article 3, which are covered by Section 7.1(a)(ii) below);

(ii) any breach of any of the representations and warranties made in this Agreement by either Seller or Navarre;

(iii) Gaimz Candies, L.L.C. v. FUNimation Productions, Ltd., FUNimation Productions Management, L.L.C., and Navarre CP, L.L.C;

(iv) FUNimation Productions, Ltd. v. Gaimz Candies, L.L.C., Gaimz Inc., Gaimz Foods, Inc., New Tech Foods, Ltd., Larry A. Cress, David D. Cudd, and Robert Frank Schmidt;

(v) Any amounts paid by or on behalf of the Companies to the Internal Revenue Service or any state revenue agency relating to the incorrect classification of any Person designated as an independent contractor rather than an employee prior to the Closing Date; and

(vi) Telea Stafford v. Navarre Corporation and FUNimation Productions, Ltd. (Charge filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission).

(b) (i) Buyer will not be entitled to indemnification and Sellers and Navarre shall have no liability pursuant to Section 7.1(a)(ii) until such time as the total amount of all Losses under Section 7.1(a)(ii) exceeds $500,000 (the "Basket"), and then for all Losses, including those that comprise the Basket. (ii) The aggregate maximum liability of Sellers and Navarre with respect to indemnification provided under Section 7.1(a)(ii)

19


shall not exceed an amount equal to $5,000,000 (the "Cap"). (iii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sections 7.1(b)(i) and 7.1(b)(ii) shall not apply to any claim for indemnification with respect to:

(A) any of the matters described in Sections 7.1(a)(i) through 7.1(a)(vi); provided that the aggregate liability of the Sellers and Navarre under Section 7.1(a)(v) shall not exceed $250,000. Notwithstanding the foregoing, such $250,000 limitation with respect to the aggregate liability of the Sellers and Navarre under Section 7.1(a)(v) shall be exclusive of any fees or costs incurred by Navarre or the Sellers in defending any investigation or audit relating to the Companies in connection therewith;

(B) any breach of any of the representations and warranties made in Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.4, 3.5, 3.9 and 3.12 of this Agreement by any Seller or Navarre (the "Fundamental Representations"); or

(C) any intentional misrepresentation or omission by any Seller or Navarre; or

(D) any fraud on the part of any Seller or Navarre.

(c) All representations and warranties made by Sellers, Navarre, or Buyers in this Agreement or any other document, certificate, schedule or instrument delivered or executed in connection herewith will survive the Closing and will expire at 11:59 p.m. (Central Standard Time) eighteen (18) months after the Effective Time ("Indemnification Period"); provided, however, that the Fundamental Representations shall remain in effect indefinitely notwithstanding the expiration of the Indemnification Period and the representations in Section 3.12 shall survive for a period beginning as of the date hereof and continuing until 90 days after the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations; provided, further, that Sellers153 and Navarre153s obligations under Section 7.1(a)(v) will expire at 11:59 p.m. (Central Standard Time) twenty four (24) months after the Effective Time. Neither Sellers nor Buyers will have any liability to the other (for indemnification or otherwise) with respect to any representation or warranty, unless, on or before the expiration of the Indemnification Period (solely in the case of representations or warranties other than Fundamental Representations) or the time periods set forth in the provisos in the foregoing sentences with respect to such matters, Buyers deliver to Navarre, or Navarre delivers to Buyers, as applicable, a written notice of claim specifying the factual basis and amount of such claim of Loss in reasonable detail to the extent then known ("Notice of Claim"). The expiration of the Indemnification Period shall not affect any Notice of Claim which was given in a timely manner if the underlying claim of Loss asserted in such notice has not been fully and finally resolved as of the end of the Indemnification Period. For the avoidance of doubt, the failure of Buyers to deliver a Notice of Claim with respect to any of the Fundamental Representations on or before the expiration of the Indemnification Period shall not render such Notice of Claim ineffective provided that Buyers otherwise deliver such Notice of Claim to Navarre pursuant to this Section 7.1(c).

20


(d) In the absence of fraud, the indemnification provisions set forth in this Section 7.1 will provide the exclusive remedy for Buyers for breach of any covenant, agreement, representation or warranty of Sellers set forth in this Agreement or any other agreement ancillary hereto executed pursuant to this Agreement.

(e) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, no liability, obligation, contract or other fact or circumstance will constitute a breach of any representation or warranty of Sellers or entitle Buyers to indemnification hereunder if the liability, obligation, contract or fact or circumstance was actually known to any of the Buyers as of the date of this Agreement.

(f) Notwithstanding any provision of Article 3 to the contrary (including, without limitation, Sections 3.7, 3.8, 3.12 and 3.13), except for the indemnification obligations in Section 7.1(a)(v), neither the Sellers nor Navarre make any representation or warranty concerning whether any of the independent contractors or consultants to or any employee of either Company has been correctly classified as an independent contractor rather than an employee prior to the closing of the transactions contemplated hereby or afterward and, except for the indemnification obligations in Section 7.1(a)(v), neither the Sellers nor Navarre shall have any liability to the Buyers or either Company for any claimed, alleged or demonstrated failure to correctly classify such Persons or withhold any amounts from such Person153s compensation. To be eligible for indemnification under Section 7.1(a)(v), Buyers and the Companies must fulfill the obligations set forth in the Letter of Undertaking and must have used commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate with Sellers and Navarre to mitigate any such liability.

7.2 Indemnification by Buyers.

(a) Buyers will, jointly and severally, indemnify, defend and hold Sellers and Navarre harmless against and in respect of any and all Losses during the Indemnification Period arising from:

(i) any breach or violation of the covenants made in this Agreement by any Buyer;

(ii) any breach of any of the representations or warranties made in this Agreement by any Buyer; or

(iii) any Losses incurred by Sellers or Navarre related, whether directly or indirectly, to the Lease, any guaranty(ies) or surety provided by Navarre relating to the Lease, and/or the aggregate amount drawn against the Letter of Credit to be provided by Navarre to Landlord to secure a release or modification of the Guaranty Agreement.

(b) Seller will not be entitled to indemnification and Buyers shall have no liability pursuant to Section 7.2(a)(ii) until such time as the total amount of all Losses exceeds the Basket, and then for all Losses, including those that comprise the Basket. Further, the aggregate maximum liability of Buyers with respect to indemnification provided under Section 7.2(a)(ii) shall not exceed an amount equal to the Cap.

21


Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 7.2(b) shall not apply to any claim for indemnification with respect to any fraud on the part of the Buyers.

(c) In the absence of fraud, the indemnification provisions set forth in this Section 7.2 will provide the exclusive remedy for Sellers and Navarre for breach of any covenant, agreement, representation or warranty of Buyers set forth in this Agreement or any other agreement ancillary hereto executed pursuant to this Agreement.

(d) Upon written notice to Buyers and the Companies specifying in reasonable detail the basis therefor, and upon providing a fifteen (15) day period to cure any liability, Sellers and/or Navarre may set off any amount which it is actually entitled to under this Section 7.2 against amounts otherwise payable to Buyers and/or the Companies. The exercise of such right of setoff by Sellers and/or Navarre in good faith, whether or not ultimately determined to be justified, will not constitute default or breach of any of this Agreement, the Logistics Agreement, the Distribution Agreement, the Transition Services Agreement or any other agreement between or among Navarre and one or both of the Companies.

7.3 Procedure for Indemnification of Third Party Claims.

(a) Notice of Third Party Claims. If any action, claim, suit, proceeding, arbitration, order, or governmental investigation or audit is filed or initiated by any third party (a "Third Party Claim") against any party entitled to the benefit of indemnity under this Agreement (an "Indemnified Party"), written notice of such Third Party Claim will be given to the party owing indemnity (an "Indemnifying Party") as promptly as reasonably practicable (and in any event within ten (10) days after the service of the citation or summons); provided, however, that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give timely notice will not affect any rights to indemnification hereunder except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is prejudiced or damaged by such failure to receive notice.

(b) Defense and Settlement by Indemnifying Party.

(i) After notice of a Third Party Claim is given under Section 7.3(a) and in the absence of a Conflict of Interest (as defined below), the Indemnifying Party may (A) take control of the defense and investigation of the Third Party Claim, (B) employ and engage attorneys of its own choice to handle and defend the Third Party Claim at the Indemnifying Party153s cost, risk and expense, which attorneys must be reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party, and (C) subject to Section 7.3(b)(ii) below, compromise or settle the Third Party Claim.

(ii) Notwithstanding Section 7.3(b)(i)(C) above, no such compromise or settlement of the Third Party Claim may be made without the written consent of the Indemnified Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed. The Indemnified Party may withhold such consent if such compromise or settlement would materially and adversely affect the conduct

22


of Business or requires less than an unconditional release with respect to the Third Party Claim.

(iii) The Indemnifying Party will provide the Indemnified Party access to all records, documents and personnel of the Indemnifying Party and keep the Indemnified Party informed relating to any Third Party Claim under this Section 7.3.

(iv) The term "Conflict of Interest" means that the named parties to a Third Party Claim include both of the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party and the Indemnified Party has been advised in writing by counsel that there exist one or more legal defenses available to the Indemnified Party that are different from or additional to those available to the Indemnifying Party, and which, if asserted, would create a conflict of interest with the Indemnifying Party.

(c) Defense and Settlement by Indemnified Party.

(i) If the Indemnifying Party fails to assume the defense of such Third Party Claim within fifteen (15) days after receipt of notice thereof pursuant to this Section 7.3 or there is a Conflict of Interest, the Indemnified Party may (A) take control of the defense and investigation of the Third Party Claim, (B) employ and engage attorneys of its own choice to handle and defend the Third Party Claim at the Indemnifying Party153s cost, risk and expense, which attorneys must be reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnifying Party, and (C) subject to Section 7.3(c)(ii) below, compromise or settle the Third Party Claim.

(ii) Notwithstanding Section 7.3(c)(i)(C) above but also subject to Section 7.3(e), no such compromise or settlement of the Third Party Claim may be made without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed.

(iii) The Indemnified Party will provide the Indemnifying Party access to all records, documents and personnel of the Indemnified Party that are reasonably necessary with respect to the investigation, trial, or defense of the Third Party Claim and keep the Indemnifying Party informed relating to any Third Party Claim under this Section 7.3.

(d) Liability, Costs and Expenses. The Indemnifying Party will be liable for any settlement of any action effected pursuant to and in accordance with this Section 7.3 and for any final judgment (subject to any right of appeal), and the Indemnifying Party agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Indemnified Party from and against any damages by reason of such settlement or judgment. Regardless of whether the Indemnifying Party or the Indemnified Party takes up the defense, the Indemnifying Party will pay the costs and expenses in connection with the defense, compromise or settlement for any Third Party Claim under this Section 7.3.

(e) Insurance; Subrogation.

23


(i) With respect to any claim, all parties agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to maximize insurance recoveries.

(ii) With respect to any claim for which the Indemnifying Party is obligated to indemnify the Indemnified Party, the Indemnifying Party shall be subrogated to all rights and claims of the Indemnified Party with respect to such Loss.

(f) Participation and Payment Obligations. The Indemnified Party may, at its own cost, participate in the investigation, trial and defense of any Third Party Claim and any appeal arising therefrom, the investigation, trial and defense of which is being handled by the Indemnifying Party pursuant to Section 7.3(b).

(g) Limitation of Special Damages. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, neither the Sellers or Navarre nor Buyers shall be entitled to indemnification for consequential, indirect or punitive damages regardless of the form of the claim or action, except to the extent such damages are payable by an Indemnifying Party in respect of third party claims.
