Each Holder agrees that, notwithstanding the provisions of Section 5.05 hereof, upon receipt of any notice from the Company of the happening of any event of the kind described in Section 5.03(d)(ii), (iii) or (iv) hereof, such Holder will forthwith upon request of the Company discontinue disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to the Registration Statement covering such Registrable Securities until such Holder’s receipt of the copies of the supplemented or amended prospectus contemplated by Section 5.03(d) hereof, and, if so directed by the Company, such Holder will deliver to the Company all copies, other than permanent file copies then in such Holder’s possession and retained solely in accordance with record retention policies then-applicable to such Holder, of the most recent prospectus covering such Registrable Securities at the time of receipt of such notice.

Section 5.05 Blackout Provisions. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, by delivery of written notice to the participating Holders (a “Suspension Notice”) stating which one or more of the following limitations shall apply to the addressee of such Suspension Notice, the Company may require such addressee to refrain from disposing of Registrable Securities under the registration for a period of no more than forty-five (45) consecutive days from the delivery of such Suspension Notice (which period may not be extended or renewed). The Company may apply the limitations on dispositions specified in this Section 5.05 if (x) the Company Board, in good faith, determines that such registration or disposition would materially impede, delay or interfere with any material transaction then pending or proposed to be undertaken by the Company or any of its subsidiaries, or (y) the Company in good faith determines that the Holder is in possession of material non-public information the disclosure of which by the Company during the period specified in such notice the Company Board, in good faith, reasonably believes would not be in the best interests of the Company; provided that the Company may not take any actions pursuant to this Section 5.05 for more than four separate occasions, or more than a period of time in excess of ninety (90) days in the aggregate, in any twelve (12)-month period.

 

Section 5.06 Indemnification.

 

(a) Indemnification by the Company. The Company agrees to indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted by law, each Holder and each of its officers, directors, employees and agents, and each Person, if any, who controls such Holder within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act, together with the officers, directors, employees and agents of the forgoing (each, a “Controlling Person”), from and against any and all losses, claims, damages, settlement amounts (only if the Company consented in writing to the settlement, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld), liabilities, reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses of investigating and defending any such claim (collectively, “Damages”) and any action in respect thereof to which such Holder, its Controlling Persons and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents may become subject to under the Securities Act or otherwise, in each case, insofar as such Damages (or proceedings in respect thereof) arise out of, or are based upon, any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement or prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto) or any preliminary prospectus of the Company, or arise out of, or are based upon, any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances in which they were made, except insofar as the same are based upon information furnished in writing to the Company by any Controlling Persons expressly for use therein, and shall reimburse such Person for any legal and other expenses reasonably incurred in investigating or defending or preparing to defend against any such Damages or proceedings. In addition to the indemnity contained herein, the Company shall reimburse each such Person for its reasonable out-of-pocket legal and other expenses (including the reasonable out-of-pocket cost of any investigation, preparation and travel in connection therewith) as incurred in connection therewith, as promptly as practicable after such expenses are incurred and invoiced.

 

(b) Indemnification by the Holder. Each Holder agrees, severally and not jointly, to indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the Company and each of its officers, directors, employees and agents, and each Person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act, together with the officers, directors, employees and agents of the forgoing (each, a “Company Controlling Person”), from and against any and all Damages and any action in respect thereof to which the Company, the Company Controlling Persons and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents may become subject to under the Securities Act or otherwise, in each case, insofar as such Damages (or proceedings in respect thereof) arise out of, or are based upon, any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement or prospectus (or any amendment or supplement thereto) or any preliminary prospectus of the Company, or arise out of, or are based upon, any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances in which they were made, in each case, insofar as and only to the extent that the same are based upon information furnished in writing to the Company by such Holder expressly for use therein, and shall reimburse such Person for any legal and other expenses reasonably incurred in investigating or defending or preparing to defend against any such Damages or proceedings.

(c) Conduct of Indemnification Proceedings. Promptly after receipt by any Person (an “Indemnified Party”) of notice of any claim or the commencement of any action in respect of which indemnity may be sought pursuant to Section 5.06(a) or Section 5.06(b), the Indemnified Party shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against the Person against whom such indemnity may be sought (an “Indemnifying Party”), notify the Indemnifying Party in writing of the claim or the commencement of such action; provided, that the failure to notify the Indemnifying Party shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have to an Indemnified Party other than under Section 5.06(a) or Section 5.06(b) except to the extent of any actual prejudice resulting therefrom. If any such claim or action shall be brought against an Indemnified Party, and it shall notify the Indemnifying Party thereof, the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to participate therein, and, to the extent that it wishes, jointly with any other similarly notified Indemnifying Party, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party. After notice from the Indemnifying Party to the Indemnified Party of its election to assume the defense of such claim or action, the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable to the Indemnified Party for any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation; provided, that the Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ separate counsel to represent the Indemnified Party and any Persons who may be subject to liability arising out of any claim in respect of which indemnity may be sought by the Indemnified Party against the Indemnifying Party, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be for the account of such Indemnified Party unless (i) the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall have mutually agreed to the retention of, and reimbursement of fees for, such counsel or (ii) in the reasonable opinion of counsel to such Indemnified Party representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential conflicts of interest between them, it being understood, however, that the Indemnifying Party shall not, in connection with any one such claim or action or separate but substantially similar or related claims or actions in the same jurisdiction arising out of the same general allegations or circumstances, be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one separate firm of attorneys (together with appropriate local counsel) at any time for all Indemnified Parties. No Indemnifying Party shall, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, effect any settlement of any claim or pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which the Indemnified Party is or would reasonably have been a party and indemnity would reasonably have been sought hereunder by such Indemnified Party, unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Party from all liability arising out of such claim or proceeding. Whether or not the defense of any claim or action is assumed by the Indemnifying Party, such Indemnifying Party will not be subject to any liability for any settlement made without its written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably conditioned, delayed or withheld.

 

(d) Lock-Up Agreements. Each of the Holders and the Company agrees that, in connection with an Underwritten Offering in respect of which Registrable Securities are being sold, it will enter into customary “lock-up” agreements for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days from the effective date of the Registration Statement pertaining to such Registrable Securities.

 

(e) Termination of Registration Rights. The rights granted under this Article V shall terminate on the earlier of the date that (a) there are no longer any Registrable Securities outstanding, (b) all Registrable Securities are eligible for sale without any volume or other limitations or restrictions, or (c) the consummation of the Camber Energy Merger; provided, however, that the indemnification provisions set forth in Section 5.06 shall survive such termination.

Each Purchaser shall be entitled to independently protect and enforce its rights, including, without limitation, the rights arising out of this Agreement, and it shall not be necessary for any other Purchaser to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose. The use of a single agreement to effectuate the purchase and sale of the Common Stock contemplated hereby was solely in the control of the Company, not the action or decision of any Purchaser, and was done solely for the convenience of the Company and not because it was required or requested to do so by any Purchaser. It is expressly understood and agreed that each provision contained in this Agreement is between the Company and a Purchaser, solely, and not between the Company and the Purchasers collectively and not between and among the Purchasers.
