(b)(i) (A) such Member is not a flow-through entity within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.7704-1(h)(3), and such Member is the sole beneficial owner of the interest to be registered in its name (which shall be interpreted to mean that the transferee is not and will not be treated as a nominee for, or agent of, another party or as anything other than the real owner of such interest for federal income tax purposes, at any time) or (B) such Member is a flow-through entity within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.7704-1(h)(3) and there is no person (a ‘Beneficial Owner’) that owns an interest in such Member such that (1) substantially all of the value of the Beneficial Owner’s interest in such Member will be attributable to such Member’s interest (direct or indirect) in the Company and (2) a principal purpose of the use of the tiered arrangement is to permit the Company to satisfy the 100-partner limitation in Treasury Regulations Section 1.7704-1(h)(1)(ii); (ii) such Member did not purchase its interest through (A) a national, foreign, regional, local or other securities exchange, (B) PORTAL or (C) over the counter market (including an interdealer quotation system that regularly disseminates firm buy or sell quotations by identified brokers or dealers by electronic means or otherwise); (iii) such Member did not purchase its interest from, to or through (A) a person, such as a broker or dealer, that makes a market in, or regularly quotes prices for, such interests or (B) a person that regularly makes available to the public (including customers or subscribers) bid or offer quotes with respect to the interest and stands ready to effect, buy or sell transactions at the quoted prices for itself or on behalf of others.

Article VI

OBLIGATIONS, INDEMNIFICATION AND EXCULPATION

Section 6.1Performance of Duties; No Liability of Members or Officers.

(a)No Member shall, in its capacity as a Member, have any duty to the Company or any other Member except as expressly set forth herein or in other written agreements. Furthermore, notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, and in accordance with applicable law, any and all fiduciary duties of the Members to the Company or to another Member or to another person that is a party to or is otherwise bound by this Agreement shall be eliminated to the maximum extent permitted by law; provided, that the implied contractual covenant of good faith and fair dealing shall not be eliminated. No Member or Officer shall be liable to the Company or to any Member for any loss or damage sustained by the Company or to any Member, unless the loss or damage shall have been the result of gross negligence, fraud or intentional misconduct by the Member or Officer in question. In performing his, her or its duties (if any), each such Person shall be entitled to rely in good faith on the provisions of this Agreement and on information, opinions, reports or statements (including financial statements and information, opinions, reports or statements as to the value or amount of the assets, liabilities, profits or losses of the Company or any facts pertinent to the existence and amount of assets from which distributions to Members might properly be paid) of the following other Persons or groups: one or more Officers or employees of the Company, any attorney, independent accountant, appraiser or other expert or professional employed or engaged by or on behalf of the Company or the Board; or any other Person who has been selected with reasonable care by or on behalf of the Board, in each case as to matters which such relying Person reasonably believes to be within such other Person’s competence. No Member or Officer shall be personally liable under any judgment of a court, or in any other manner, for any debt, obligation or liability of the Company, whether that liability or obligation arises in contract, tort or otherwise, solely by reason of being a Member, Officer or any combination of the foregoing. The waiver of duties and limitations of liability set forth in this Section 6.1 shall apply to each such Person’s capacity as a Member or Officer. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 6.1, the Managers shall owe the same fiduciary duties to the Company and the Members as are owed by directors of a Delaware corporation to such corporation and its stockholders, and such duties shall not be limited by the fact that the Managers shall be permitted to take certain actions in their discretion hereunder.

(b)Any Member and any Affiliate of any Member may engage in or possess an interest in other profit-seeking or business ventures of any kind, nature or description, independently or with others, whether or not such ventures are competitive with the Company and the doctrine of corporate opportunity, or any analogous doctrine, shall not apply to any Member. No Member who acquires knowledge of a potential transaction, agreement, arrangement or other matter that may be an opportunity for the Company shall have any duty to communicate or offer such opportunity to the Company, and such Member shall not be liable to the Company or to the other Members for breach of any fiduciary or other duty by reason of the fact that such Member pursues or acquires for, or directs such opportunity to another Person or does not communicate such opportunity or information to the Company. Neither the Company nor any Member shall have any rights or obligations by virtue of this Agreement or the relationship created hereby or thereby in or to such independent ventures or the income or profits or losses derived therefrom, and the pursuit of such ventures, even if competitive with the activities of the Company, shall not be deemed wrongful or improper.

Section 6.2Confidential Information. Without limiting the applicability of any other agreement to which any Member may be subject, no Member or Officer or Manager, directly or indirectly disclose or use at any time, either during his, her or its association or employment with the Company or for a period of twenty four (24) months thereafter, any Confidential Information of which such Member, Officer or Manager is or becomes aware. Each Member, Officer and Manager in possession of Confidential Information shall take all appropriate steps to safeguard such information and to protect it against disclosure, misuse, espionage, loss and theft. Notwithstanding the above, a Member, Officer or Manager may disclose Confidential Information to the extent (a) the disclosure is necessary for the Member, Officer or Manager and/or the Company’s agents, representatives, and advisors to fulfill their duties to the Company pursuant to this Agreement and/or other written agreements, (b) the disclosure is required or requested by any federal, state, provincial or other regulatory authority or examiner, or any insurance industry association, or is reasonably believed by such Member, Officer or Manager to be compelled by any court decree, subpoena or legal or administrative order or process, (c) necessary to enforce rights hereunder, and (d) solely in the case of the Original Holders, disclosure is of a general nature regarding general business and financial information, return on investment and similar information and information provided to such Member by the Company pursuant to this Agreement (i) in connection with their communications to their direct and indirect beneficial owners and controlling Persons, (ii) in connection with their marketing efforts, and (iii) to any nationally recognized rating agency or investor of the foregoing Persons (and their successors and assigns who become Members) that requires access to information about any such Person’s investment portfolio in connection with ratings issued or investment decisions with respect to such a Person. No Member, Officer or Manager shall be prohibited from disclosing any Confidential Information to the extent such information (A) was or becomes generally available to such Member, Officer or Manager and known by the public other than as a result of a disclosure by such Member, Officer or Manager or any of its representatives or agents in violation of this Agreement, (B) was or becomes available to such Member, Officer or Manager on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the Company or any of its representatives or agents, provided that such source was not known by such Member, Officer or Manager, after reasonable inquiry, to be bound by any agreement with the Company or any of its Affiliates to keep such information confidential, or otherwise prohibited from transmitting the information to such Member, Officer or Manager or any of its representatives or agents by a contractual, legal or fiduciary obligation, or (C) was in such Member’s, Officer’s or the Manager’s possession prior to being furnished by or on behalf of the Company, provided the source of such information was not known by such Member, Officer or Manager, after reasonable inquiry, to be bound by any agreement with the Company or any of its Affiliates to keep such information confidential, or otherwise prohibited from transmitting the information to such Member, Officer or Manager or any of its representatives or agents by a contractual, legal or fiduciary obligation.

Section 6.3Right to Indemnification.

Indemnification under this Article VI shall continue as to a Person who has ceased to serve in the capacity which initially entitled such Person to indemnity hereunder. The rights granted pursuant to this Article VI shall be deemed contract rights, and no amendment, modification or repeal of this Article VI shall have the effect of limiting or denying any such rights with respect to actions taken or Proceedings, appeals, inquiries or investigations arising prior to any amendment, modification or repeal.

Section 6.4Advance Payment. The right to indemnification conferred in this Article VI shall include the right to be paid or reimbursed by the Company the reasonable expenses incurred by a Person (other than an Officer of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries thereof in respect of claims by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries thereof against such Officer in such Officer’s capacity as such) entitled to be indemnified under Section 6.3 who was, is or is threatened to be made a named defendant or respondent in a Proceeding in advance of the final disposition of the Proceeding and without any determination as to the Person’s ultimate entitlement to indemnification; provided that the payment of such expenses incurred by any such Person in advance of the final disposition of a Proceeding shall be made only upon delivery to the Company of a written affirmation by such Person of his or her good faith belief that he or she has met the standard of conduct necessary for indemnification under Article VI and a written undertaking, by or on behalf of such Person, to repay all amounts so advanced if it shall ultimately be determined that such indemnified Person is not entitled to be indemnified under this Article VI or otherwise.

Section 6.5Indemnification of Employees and Agents. The Company, at the direction of the Board, may indemnify and advance expenses to an employee or agent of the Company to the same extent and subject to the same conditions under which it may indemnify and advance expenses under Section 6.3 and Section 6.4.

Section 6.6Appearance as a Witness. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article VI, the Company may pay or reimburse reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred by an Officer, employee or agent in connection with his or her appearance as a witness or other participation in a Proceeding at a time when he or she is not a named defendant or respondent in the Proceeding.

Section 6.7Nonexclusivity of Rights. The right to indemnification and the advancement and payment of expenses conferred in this Article VI shall not be exclusive of any other right that a Member or Manager indemnified pursuant to this Article VI may have or hereafter acquire under any law (common or statutory) or under any agreement.

Section 6.8Insurance. The Company shall obtain and maintain at all times thereafter, at its expense, insurance (with coverage limits customary for similarly situated companies) to protect itself and any Member, Manager, Officer or agent of the Company, and any member of the board (or governing body), officer or agent of any Subsidiary of the Company, who is or was serving at the request of the Company or such Subsidiary as a manager, representative, director, officer, partner, venturer, proprietor, trustee, employee, agent or similar functionary of another foreign or domestic limited liability company, corporation, partnership, joint venture, sole proprietorship, trust, employee benefit plan or other enterprise against any expense, liability or loss, whether or not the Company would have the power to indemnify such Person against such expense, liability or loss under this Article VI.

Article VIII

ALLOCATIONS AND DISTRIBUTIONS

Section 8.1Allocations. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Profits and Losses (and, to the extent necessary, individual items of income, gain, loss, deduction or credit) of the Company shall be allocated among the Members in a manner such that the Capital Account of each such Member, immediately after making such allocation, is, as nearly as possible, equal (proportionately) to (a) the distributions that would be made to such Members pursuant to Section 8.4 if the Company were dissolved, its affairs wound up and its assets sold for cash equal to their book values, all Company liabilities were satisfied (limited with respect to each nonrecourse liability to such book value of the assets securing such liability), and the net assets of the Company were distributed in accordance with Section 8.4(b) to such Members immediately after making such allocation, minus (b) such Member’s share of Partnership Minimum Gain and Member’s nonrecourse debt minimum gain (as determined pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(b)(4)), computed immediately prior to the hypothetical sale of assets.

Section 8.2Interim Allocations Due to Members’ Membership Interest Adjustment. In the event of a change in a Member’s Membership Interest during any year or a Transfer of a Unit, the Company’s Profits and Losses shall be allocated among the Members for the periods before and after the change or Transfer based on an interim closing of the books or any lawful equitable alternative method as determined by the Board. This Section 8.2 shall apply both for purposes of computing Capital Accounts for federal income tax purposes.

Section 8.3Certain Tax Matters.

(a)Except as otherwise provided herein, all items of Company income, gain, deduction and loss shall be allocated among the Members in the same proportion as they share in the Profits and Losses to which such items relate.

(b)Income, gain, loss or deductions of the Company shall, solely for income tax purposes, be allocated among the Members in accordance with Section 704(c) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder, so as to take account of any difference between the adjusted basis of the assets of the Company and their respective Gross Asset Values by using the ‘traditional method’ set forth in Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-3(b).

(c)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article VIII, if there is a net decrease in Partnership Minimum Gain of the Company during any year, each Member shall be specially allocated items of income and gain for such year (and, if necessary, subsequent years) in an amount equal to the portion of such Member’s share of the net decrease in Partnership Minimum Gain of the Company, determined in accordance with Section 1.704-2(g) of the Treasury Regulations. Allocations pursuant to the previous sentence shall be made in proportion to the respective amounts required to be allocated to each Member pursuant thereto. The items to be so allocated shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.704-2(f)(6) of the Treasury Regulations. This Section 8.3(c) is intended to comply with the minimum gain chargeback requirement in Section 1.704-2(f) of the Treasury Regulations and shall be interpreted consistently therewith.

(d)Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Article VIII except Section 8.3(c), if there is a net decrease in Partnership Minimum Gain of the Company attributable to a Partner Nonrecourse Debt during any year, each Member who has a share of the Partnership Minimum Gain attributable to such Partner Nonrecourse Debt, determined in accordance with Section 1.704-2(i)(5) of the Treasury Regulations, shall be specially allocated items of income and gain for such year (and, if necessary, subsequent years) in an amount equal to the portion of such Member’s share of the net decrease in Partnership Minimum Gain attributable to such Partner Nonrecourse Debt, determined in accordance with Section 1.704-2(i)(4) of the Treasury Regulations. Allocations pursuant to the previous sentence shall be made in proportion to the respective amounts required to be allocated to each Member pursuant thereto. The items to be so allocated shall be determined in accordance with Section 1.704-2(i)(4) of the Treasury Regulations. This Section 8.3(d) is intended to comply with the minimum gain chargeback requirement in Section 1.704-2(i) of the Treasury Regulations and shall be interpreted consistently therewith.

(e)Nonrecourse Deductions of the Company for any year shall be allocated to the Members in accordance with their respective Percentage Interests.

(f)Any Partner Nonrecourse Deductions for any year shall be specially allocated to the Member who bears the economic risk of loss with respect to the Partner Nonrecourse Debt of the Company to which such Partner Nonrecourse Deductions of such series are attributable in accordance with Section 1.704-2(i)(1) of the Treasury Regulations. This Section 8.3(f) is intended to comply with the provisions of Treasury Regulations Section 1.704-2(i) and shall be interpreted consistently therewith.

(g)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article VIII, no Member shall be allocated in any Fiscal Year of the Company any Loss (and no Unit shall be allocated in any Fiscal Year of the Company any Loss) to the extent such allocation would cause or increase a deficit balance in such Member’s Capital Account, taking into account all other allocations to be made for such year pursuant to this Article VIII and the reasonably expected adjustments, allocations and distributions described in Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d) of the Treasury Regulations. Any such Loss that would be allocated to such a Member (the ‘Deficit Member‘), or a Unit (the ‘Deficit Unit‘), shall instead be allocated to the other Members or Units. Moreover, if a Deficit Member unexpectedly receives an adjustment, allocation or distribution described in Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d) of the Treasury Regulations which creates or increases a deficit balance in such Member’s Capital Account (computed after all other allocations to be made for such year pursuant to this Article VIII have been tentatively made as if this Section 8.3(g) were not in this Agreement), such Deficit Member shall be allocated items of gross income in an amount equal to such deficit balance (which shall be allocated among the Members associated with Units as determined by the Board). This Section 8.3(g) is intended to comply with the qualified income offset requirement of Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d) of the Treasury Regulations and shall be interpreted consistently therewith.

(h)The allocations set forth in Sections 8.3(c) through 8.3(g) (the ‘Regulatory Allocations‘) are intended to comply with Section 704(b) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder and shall be taken into account in allocating items of income, gain, loss and deduction among the Members so that, to the extent possible, the net amount of such allocations of other items and the Regulatory Allocations to each Member shall be equal to the net amount that would have been allocated to each such Member if the Regulatory Allocations had not occurred.

Section 8.4Distributions.

(a)On each Tax Distribution Date with respect to a calendar quarter for a Fiscal Year, to the extent permitted by the financing agreements of the Company and its Subsidiaries, the Company shall, to the extent of Distributable Cash, make a distribution in cash (each, a ‘Tax Distribution‘), to the Members in proportion to their respective Percentage Interests in an aggregate amount equal to the excess of (i) the Hypothetical Total Tax Liability with respect to such calendar quarter over (ii) the aggregate amount of distributions made by the Company with respect to such Fiscal Year (treating any Tax Distribution made with respect to income for such Fiscal Year, regardless of when made, and any distribution other than a Tax Distribution made during such Fiscal Year, as being made with respect to such Fiscal Year). If, at any time after the end of a Fiscal Year, the Company has a True-Up Amount, then to the extent permitted by the financing agreements of the Company and its Subsidiaries, the Company shall, to the extent of Distributable Cash, make a Tax Distribution to the Members in proportion to their respective Percentage Interests in an aggregate amount equal to the True-Up Amount. In the event that there is insufficient Distributable Cash to make the distribution described in the preceding provisions of this Section 8.4(a), the amount distributable to each such Member holding Class A Units and/or Class B Units shall be reduced pro rata in accordance with the amount that would be distributable to such Member, and such deficiency shall be paid to such Members when there is next Distributable Cash, and in any event, prior to any distribution pursuant to Section 8.4(b). If the aggregate amount of Tax Distributions made in respect of such Fiscal Year exceeds the amount of the Hypothetical Total Tax Liability with respect to such Fiscal Year (based on the information returns filed by the Company), then Tax Distributions for subsequent Fiscal Years shall be reduced by the amount of such excess.

(b)Other than as provided for in Section 8.4(a) and Article IX, the Company shall make distributions of Distributable Cash to the Members at such times and in such amounts as the Board may determine from time to time. All amounts so determined by the Board to be available for distribution by the Company shall be distributed to the Members in proportion to their respective Percentage Interests.

(c)All distributions made pursuant to Section 8.4 shall be at such times and in such aggregate amounts as shall be determined by the Board, in its sole discretion.

(d)If the Company or any of its Subsidiaries enters into (or otherwise becomes bound by) any financing arrangement or agreement after the date hereof, the Company shall (and shall cause its Subsidiaries to) use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that such financing arrangement or agreement permits, at any time in which the Company or such Subsidiary is not in default thereunder: (i) in the case of the Company, Tax Distributions to be made in full when due pursuant to Section 8.4(a) (without regard to the limitation regarding financing agreements), and (ii) in the case of any such Subsidiary, payments to be made directly or indirectly to the Company to enable the Company to make Tax Distributions in full when due pursuant to Section 8.4(a) (without regard to the limitation regarding financing agreements); provided, however, that any such financing arrangement or agreement entered into after the date hereof that is no more restrictive with respect to Tax Distributions than any financing arrangement or agreement existing on the date hereof will be deemed to satisfy the requirements under this Section 8.4(d).

Section 8.5Distributions in Kind. Distributions made pursuant to this Agreement may be made in cash or in property or assets in kind at the discretion of the Board; provided, however, that subject to Section 8.4 any distribution in kind shall be made to all Members proportionately in accordance with Section 8.4(b).

Section 8.6Distribution Rules and Tax Withholding.

(a)Each Member shall deliver to the Company any form or other documentation reasonably requested by the Company that is required to demonstrate that the applicable Member is not subject to withholding tax under the provisions of any applicable Federal, state, local, foreign or other law. If requested by a relevant taxing authority in connection with an audit, inquiry or other proceeding conducted by such taxing authority, each Member shall if requested by the Company deliver a copy of any tax return or similar document of the applicable Member that the Company may reasonably request with respect to any such law.

(b)To the extent that the Company is required by any applicable law to withhold or to make tax payments on behalf of or with respect to distributions to, issuance of Units to, allocations to, transfers by, or otherwise for, any Member in such Person’s capacity as a Member of the Company (each a ‘Tax Liability‘), the Company may make such payment out of available cash of the Company, which shall reduce any distribution otherwise payable to such Member; provided, that at least ten (10) days, if commercially possible, prior to making a distribution on behalf of or with respect to a Member, the Company shall first notify such affected Member and advise such Member as to whether the Company has sufficient cash to pay such Tax Liability and, if it does not, the amount of any deficiency. If the Company does not have sufficient Distributable Cash to pay such Tax Liability, such Member shall pay to the Company an amount equal to such deficiency (a ‘Tax Excess‘) three (3) days prior to the date that the Company is required to pay the associated Tax Liability. If not paid in accordance with the preceding sentence, such Tax Excess shall be deemed to be a recourse loan to such Member by the Company and shall be due and payable immediately, and if not repaid within two (2) days, the Tax Excess shall bear interest at a rate equal to the lesser of (i) fifteen percent (15%) per annum, or (ii) the maximum rate permitted by law until repaid. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any other agreement between or among Members, each Member hereby agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Company and its Affiliates from and against any Tax Liability of or with respect to such Member, at any time, and this indemnity and hold harmless provision shall survive this Agreement and the termination of the Company. In the event of any claimed over-withholding, such Member shall be limited to an action against the applicable government agencies for refund and hereby waives any claim or right of action against the Company on account of such withholding. The Company may, and is hereby authorized to, withhold from any distributions or payments otherwise due to a Member from the Company under this Agreement the amount of any Tax Excess made on behalf of such Member that as of such date has neither been repaid to the Company nor been previously offset hereunder, and any amount withheld under this Section 8.6 shall be deemed for all purposes of this Agreement to have been distributed or paid to such Member. Any Member who does not repay a Tax Excess after a written final demand has been given by the Board shall pay, in addition to the Tax Excess and applicable interest, all expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by the Company or any other Member in collecting the Tax Excess plus interest or pursuing any other remedy provided in this Section 8.6 and otherwise in this Agreement.

Section 8.7Restrictions on Distributions. Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Company shall not make a distribution to any Member with respect to such Member’s Units if such distribution would violate the Act or other applicable law. In addition, except as specifically determined by the Board, the Company shall not make a distribution to any Member if such distribution would be prohibited by the terms of, or would cause any obligation of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to become due prior to the final maturity date of, or would cause the net worth or assets of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries to be less than the minimum amount (or less in relation to another amount than the minimum ratio of such amounts) required to be maintained by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries under, or otherwise would conflict with, any agreement or other instrument to which the Company or any of its Subsidiaries is a party or by which any of them is bound which relates to borrowed money.

Section 8.8Accounting Method. The Company shall keep its accounting records and shall report Profit or Losses on the accrual method of accounting in accordance with the principles used by the Company for federal income tax purposes and otherwise in accordance with GAAP consistently applied and, to the extent inconsistent therewith, in accordance with this Agreement.

Section 8.9Interest on and Return of Capital Contributions. No Member shall be entitled to interest on any of its Capital Contributions or to return of any of its Capital Contributions.

Section 8.10Taxes.

(a)The Company shall prepare, or cause to be prepared, and shall file all tax returns, be they information returns or otherwise, which are required to be filed by the Company with the Internal Revenue Service, state and local tax authorities and foreign tax jurisdictions, if any.

(b)The Company shall furnish the Members with all Company information required to be reported in the tax returns of the Members for tax jurisdictions in which the Company is considered to be doing business, including a report indicating each Member’s share for income tax purposes of the Company’s estimated income, gain, credits, losses and deductions within 30 days after each of the first three quarters of each Fiscal Year and within 60 days after the end of the Company’s Fiscal Year. The Company shall furnish the Members with a copy of Schedule K-1 to IRS Form 1065 (or any successor form) by no later than 74 days after the end of each year.

(c)All determinations as to tax elections for the Company shall be made by the Board. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, an election under Section 754 of the Code shall be made with respect to each taxable year of the Company ending after the date hereof.

Section 8.11Tax Matters Representative.

(a)The ‘partnership representative’ (as such term is defined in Section 6223 of the BBA Audit Rules or corresponding or similar provision of applicable state or local law) of the Company (the ‘Tax Matters Representative‘) shall be PubCo or any successor designated by such Person. The Tax Matters Representative shall be permitted to appoint any ‘designated individual’ (or similar person) (a ‘Designated Individual‘) permitted under Treasury Regulations Section 301.6223-1 (or any successor regulations or corresponding or similar provision of applicable state or local law). If the Tax Matters Representative appoints a Designated Individual pursuant to Code Section 6223 and Treasury Regulations thereunder (or corresponding or similar provision of applicable state or local law), such Designated Individual shall be subject to this Agreement in the same manner as the Tax Matters Representative (and references to the Tax Matters Representative shall include any such Designated Individual unless the context otherwise requires or shall mean solely the Designated Individual as needed to comply with applicable law). Each Member, by its execution of this Agreement, hereby (i) consents to such designation of the Tax Matters Representative, and agrees to execute, certify, acknowledge, deliver, swear to, file and record at the appropriate public offices such documents as may be necessary or appropriate to evidence such consent, (ii) agrees take such actions as may be required to effect any future designations of the Tax Matters Representative, and (iii) agrees to cooperate to provide any information or take such other actions as may be reasonably requested by the Tax Matters Representative, to determine whether any Imputed Underpayment Amount may be modified pursuant to Code Section 6225(c) (or any corresponding or similar provision of applicable state or local law). To the extent and in the manner provided by applicable Code Sections and Treasury Regulations thereunder (or any corresponding or similar provision of applicable state or local law), the Tax Matters Representative (i) shall furnish the name, address and taxpayer identification number of each Member to the IRS and (ii) shall inform each Member of administrative or judicial proceedings for the adjustment of Company items required to be taken into account by a Member for income tax purposes. The Tax Matters Representative shall act reasonably at all times and keep the other Members reasonably informed about its actions. The Tax Matters Representative shall be entitled to be reimbursed for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses properly incurred in the capacity as the Tax Matters Representative.

(b)Each Member shall be considered to have retained such rights (and obligations, if any) as are provided for under the Code or any other applicable law with respect to any examination, proposed adjustment or proceeding relating to Company tax items. The Tax Matters Representative agrees that it will not bind the Members to any material income tax settlement or income tax settlement that disproportionately impacts the Class B Members without the prior written approval of the affected Majority Class B Members, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. The Tax Matters Representative shall use reasonable best efforts to notify the Members, within thirty (30) days after the Tax Matters Representative receives notice from the IRS, of any administrative proceeding with respect to an examination of, or proposed adjustment to, any Company tax items, and shall promptly provide the Members with copies of relevant written materials. The Tax Matters Representative shall use reasonable best efforts to provide the Members with notice of its intention to extend the statute of limitations or file a tax claim in any court at least ten (10) days before taking such action and shall not take such action without the prior written approval of the Majority Class B Members, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.

(c)Neither the Board nor the Tax Matters Representative shall elect to cause the Company to be subject to the BBA Audit Rules with respect to any taxable year beginning before January 1, 2018. The Tax Matters Representative shall use reasonable best efforts to make the election described in Section 6226 of the BBA Audit Rules (or any corresponding or similar provision of applicable state or local law) with respect to each final partnership adjustment for a taxable period ending on or prior to the date hereof. If the Company is subject to any Imputed Underpayment Amount under the BBA Audit Rules, the Board shall use reasonable efforts to allocate such liabilities among the Members and former Members in a fair and equitable manner, taking into account any modifications attributable to such a Member pursuant to Section 6225(c) of the BBA Audit Rules (if applicable). Any tax liabilities so allocated shall be treated as a Tax Liability subject to the provisions of Section 8.6.

Section 8.12Accounting Decisions; Auditors. All determinations as to the accounting principles of the Company shall be made by the Board.

Section 8.13Tax Classification. It is the intention of the parties hereto that the Company be classified as a partnership, and not as an association taxable as a corporation, for federal income tax purposes, and the provisions of this Agreement shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with such intention. No election shall be filed with the Internal Revenue Service (or the tax authorities of any State) to have the Company taxable other than as a partnership for income tax purposes without the prior consent of the Board.

Section 8.14Accounting Method. The Company shall keep its accounting records and shall report Profit or Losses on the accrual method of accounting in accordance with the principles used by the Company and the Company for federal income tax purposes and otherwise in accordance with GAAP consistently applied and, to the extent inconsistent therewith, in accordance with this Agreement.

(b)The Original Holders, their Permitted Transferees and their respective Owners (if applicable) may Transfer any Class B Units held by each them so long as such Transfer is (i) made to an Affiliate or a Person in the Family Group of such Member, Permitted Transferee or PubCo, as applicable, in compliance with Section 9.2(e) and Section 9.2(f), or (ii) made pursuant to the Exchange Agreement (each Transferee of a Transfer pursuant to clause (i) and clause (ii) being referred to herein as a ‘Permitted Transferee‘).

(c)PubCo is the only permitted holder of Class A Units.

(d)Any Member who Transfers any Units in accordance with this Section 9.2 shall cease to be a Member with respect to such Transferred Units and shall no longer have any rights or privileges of a Member with respect to such Transferred Units.

(e)Except with respect to Transfers of Units pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, any Person who acquires any Units in accordance with this Section 9.2 that is not an existing Member shall agree in writing to assume the responsibility of the transferring Member. In the event that such Person fails to do so entirely or fails to do so in a timely manner, such Person shall be deemed by its acceptance of the benefits of the acquisition of such Units to have agreed to be subject to, and bound by, all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement to which the predecessor in such Units was subject, and by which such predecessor was bound, and for all purposes shall be deemed to be a Member.

(f)Except with respect to Transfers of Units pursuant to the Exchange Agreement, no Transfer of Units shall be given effect unless the transferee delivers to the Company the representations set forth in Schedule B.

(g)Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, no Transfer of Units may be made except in compliance with all federal, state and other applicable laws, including federal and state securities laws.

(h)Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, (i) no Transfer of Units may be made to a lender to the Company or any Person who is related (within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.752-4(b)) to any lender to the Company whose loan otherwise constitutes a Nonrecourse Liability unless (A) the Board is provided prior written notice thereof and (B) the lender enters into an arrangement with the Company to exchange or redeem for Class A Common Stock any Units in which a security interest is held simultaneously with the time at which such lender would be deemed to be a member in the Company for purposes of allocating liabilities to such lender under Section 752 of the Code, and (ii) no Member may Transfer any of such Units (including any Economic Interest therein) if the Board reasonably and in good faith promptly determines that such Transfer or attempted Transfer (A) would create a material risk that the Transfer would be considered to be effected on or through an ‘established securities market’ or a ‘secondary market or the substantial equivalent thereof,’ as such terms are used in Treasury Regulations Section 1.7704-1, (B) would create a material risk that the Company would have more than one hundred (100) partners, within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.7704-1(h)(1)(ii) (determined taking into account the rules of Treasury Regulations Section 1.7704-1(h)(3)), and (C) would have a material risk that the Company would be treated as a ‘publicly traded partnership’ within the meaning of Section 7704(b) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder.

(i)Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, no Member may Transfer any Units unless (x) contemporaneously with the Transfer, the Transferor shall deliver to the Company a validly executed IRS Form W-9 (unless such form had previously been provided to the Company and remains in effect), or (y) contemporaneously with the Transfer, the Transferee shall properly withhold and remit to the Internal Revenue Service the amount of tax required to be withheld upon the Transfer by Section 1446(f) of the Code (and provide evidence to the Company of such withholding and remittance promptly thereafter); provided that the Company shall timely provide whatever information is reasonably requested by the Transferor or Transferee to calculate the tax to be withheld.

(j)Any attempted Transfer of Units by any Member not in accordance with this Section 9.2 shall be ineffective, null and void ab initio.

Section 9.3Effect of Permitted Transfer. Upon consummation of any Transfer of Units made in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, (a) the Transferee shall be admitted as a Member (if not already a Member) and for purposes of this Agreement, such Transferee shall be deemed a Member with respect to such Transferred Units, (b) the Transferred Units shall continue to be subject to all the provisions of this Agreement and (c) the Capital Account (or applicable portion thereof in the case of a Transfer of less than all of a Transferor’s Units) of the Transferor shall be Transferred to the name of such Transferee at the close of business on the effective date of such Transfer (the ‘Effective Transfer Time‘). Unless the Transferor and Transferee otherwise agree in writing, and give written notice of such agreement to the Company at least five (5) days prior to such Effective Transfer Time, all distributions declared to be payable to the Transferor at or prior to such Effective Transfer Time shall be made to the Transferor. No Transfer shall relieve the Transferor (or any of its Affiliates) of any of their obligations or liabilities under this Agreement arising prior to the closing of the consummation of such Transfer.

Section 9.4Recognition of Assignment by Company. No Transfer, or any part thereof, that is in violation of Article IX shall be valid or effective, and neither the Company nor the Board shall recognize the same for the purpose of making distributions in accordance with this Agreement. To the fullest extent permitted by law, neither the Company nor the Board shall incur any liability as a result of refusing to make any such distributions to the transferee of any such invalid Transfer.

Section 9.5Death, Incompetency, Bankruptcy or Dissolution of a Member. The death, incompetency, Bankruptcy, dissolution or other cessation to exist as a legal entity of a Member shall not, in and of itself, dissolve the Company. In any such event, the personal representative (as defined in the Act) of such Member may exercise all of the rights of such Member for the purpose of settling such Member’s estate or administering its property, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

Section 9.6Withdrawal from the Company. Except as provided in this Agreement, no Member may withdraw as a member of the Company.

Section 9.7Drag-Along Rights.

(a)If at any time PubCo desires to Transfer in one or more transactions all or any portion of its Units (or any beneficial interest therein) in an arm’s-length transaction to a bona fide third party that is not an Affiliate of PubCo (an ‘Applicable Sale‘), PubCo can require each other Member to sell the same pro rata share of its Units as is being sold by PubCo (based upon the total number of Units held by PubCo at such time) on the same terms and conditions (‘Drag-Along Right‘). PubCo may in its sole discretion elect to cause the Board and/or the Company to structure the Applicable Sale as a merger or consolidation or as a sale of the Company’s assets. If such Applicable Sale is structured (i) as a merger or consolidation, then no Member shall have any dissenters’ rights, appraisal rights or similar rights in connection with such merger or consolidation or (ii) as a sale of assets, then no Member may object to any subsequent liquidation or other distribution of the proceeds therefrom. Each Member agrees to consent to, and raise no objections against, an Applicable Sale. In the event of the exercise by PubCo of its Drag-Along Right pursuant to this Section 9.7, each Member shall take all reasonably necessary and desirable actions approved by PubCo in connection with the consummation of the Applicable Sale, including the execution of such agreements and such instruments and other actions reasonably necessary to provide customary and reasonable representations, warranties, indemnities, covenants, conditions and other agreements relating to such Applicable Sale and to otherwise effect the transaction; provided, however, that (A) such Members shall not be required to give disproportionately greater or more onerous representations, warranties, indemnities or covenants than PubCo, (B) such Members shall not be obligated to bear any share of the out-of-pocket expenses, costs or fees (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by the Company in connection with such Applicable Sale unless and to the extent that such expenses, costs and fees were incurred for the benefit of the Company or all Members, (C) such Members shall not be obligated or otherwise responsible for more than their proportionate share of any indemnities or other liabilities incurred by the Company and the Members as sellers in respect of such Applicable Sale, and (D) any indemnities or other liabilities approved by PubCo or the Board shall be limited, in respect of each Member, to such Member’s share of the proceeds from the Applicable Sale.

(b)At least five (5) Business Days before consummation of an Applicable Sale, PubCo shall (i) provide the Members written notice (the ‘Applicable Sale Notice‘) of such Applicable Sale, which notice shall contain (A) the name and address of the third party purchaser, (B) the proposed purchase price, terms of payment and other material terms and conditions of such purchaser’s offer, together with a copy of any binding agreement with respect to such Applicable Sale and (C) notification of whether or not PubCo has elected to exercise its Drag-Along Right and (ii) promptly notify the Members of all proposed changes to such material terms and keep the Members reasonably informed as to all material terms relating to such sale or contribution, and promptly deliver to the Members copies of all final material agreements relating thereto not already provided in according with this Section 9.7(b) or otherwise. PubCo shall provide the Members written notice of the termination of an Applicable Sale within five (5) Business Days following such termination, which notice shall state that the Applicable Sale Notice served with respect to such Applicable Sale is rescinded.

Article X

(ii)at any time there are no members of the Company unless the Company is continued without dissolution in accordance with the Act; or

(iii)the entry of a decree of judicial dissolution of the Company under the Act; provided, however, that no Member or its Affiliates or agents shall apply for entry of a decree of judicial dissolution of the Company under the Act at any time that the Exchange Agreement is in effect.

(b)Upon the dissolution of the Company as provided herein, the Company shall be wound up in the manner provided by Section 10.2.

Section 10.2Winding Up, Liquidation and Distribution of Assets of the Company Upon Dissolution of the Company.

(a)Upon dissolution of the Company, the Board shall commence to wind up the Company’s affairs; provided, however, that a reasonable time shall be allowed for the orderly liquidation of the assets of the Company and the discharge of liabilities of the Company to its creditors so as to enable the Members to minimize the normal losses attendant upon a liquidation. The Members shall continue to share in the allocation of the Profits and Losses of the Company during the liquidation of the Company in the same proportions as specified in Section 8.1 as before liquidation of the Company. The Members shall be furnished with a statement prepared by a certified public accountant selected by the Board at the expense of the Company, that shall set forth the assets and liabilities of the Company as of the date of termination. The proceeds of liquidation shall be distributed in the following order and priority:

(i)first, to creditors of the Company, including Members who are creditors, to the extent otherwise permitted by law, in satisfaction of (A) all debts and liabilities of the Company, whether by payment thereof or the making of reasonable provision of payment thereof (including, to the extent permitted by law, any loans or advances that may have been made by any of the members to the Company) and (B) the expenses of liquidation not otherwise adequately provided for, whether by payment thereof or the making of reasonable provision of payment thereof, which liabilities set forth in (A) and (B) may be satisfied by the setting up of any reserves that are determined by the Board to be reasonably necessary for any contingent, conditional or unmatured liabilities or obligations of the Company arising out of, or in connection with, the Company; and

(ii)second, to the Members in accordance with Section 8.4.

(b)[Reserved.]

(c)The Members shall comply with all requirements of applicable law pertaining to the winding up of the affairs of the Company and the final distribution of its assets.

Section 10.3Certificate of Cancellation.

(a)If a dissolution of the Company occurs and all debts, liabilities and obligations of the Company have been satisfied (whether by payment or reasonable provision for payment) and all of the remaining property and assets of the Company have been distributed, a certificate of cancellation shall be executed and filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware in accordance with the Act.

(b)Upon cancellation of the Certificate by the filing of a certificate of cancellation or otherwise, this Agreement shall terminate, and the existence of the Company shall cease.

Section 10.4Returns of Contributions Nonrecourse to Members. Except as otherwise provided by applicable law, upon dissolution of the Company, each Member shall look solely to the assets of the Company for the return of its Capital Contributions made to the Company, and if the assets of the Company remaining after satisfaction (whether by payment or reasonable provision for payment) of the debts, liabilities and obligations of the Company are insufficient to return such Capital Contributions, such Members shall have no recourse against the Company or any Member, except as otherwise provided by law.

SCHEDULE B

TRANSFEREE TAX REPRESENTATIONS

i.Either:

(a)Such transferee (i) is not a flow-through entity within the meaning of Treasury Regulations Section 1.7704-1(h)(3), and (ii) is and will at all times continue to be, the sole beneficial owner of the interest to be registered in its name (which shall be interpreted to mean that the transferee is not and will not be treated as a nominee for, or agent of, another party or as anything other than the real owner of such interest for federal income tax purposes, at any time); or

(b)(i) Such transferee is a flow-through entity within the meaning of Regulations Section 1.7704-1(h)(3) and (ii) there is no person (a ‘Beneficial Owner‘) that owns an interest in such transferee such that (x) substantially all of the value of the Beneficial Owner’s interest in such transferee will be attributable to such transferee’s interest (direct or indirect) in the Company; and (y) a principal purpose of the use of the tiered arrangement is to permit the Company to satisfy the 100-partner limitation in Treasury Regulations Section 1.7704-1(h)(1)(ii);

ii.Such transferee did not purchase, and will not sell, its interest through (a) a national, foreign, regional, local or other securities exchange, (b) PORTAL or (c) over the counter market (including an interdealer quotation system that regularly disseminates firm buy or sell quotations by identified brokers or dealers by electronic means or otherwise);

iii.Such transferee did not purchase, and will not sell, its interest from, to or through (a) a person, such as a broker or dealer, that makes a market in, or regularly quotes prices for, such interests or (b) a person that regularly makes available to the public (including customers or subscribers) bid or offer quotes with respect to the interest and stands ready to effect, buy or sell transactions at the quoted prices for itself or on behalf of others; and

iv.Such transferee will only sell its interest to a buyer who provides the representations similar to these.

The representations set forth above are intended to ensure that the Company will not be treated as a corporation for federal income tax purposes as a result of any transfer. The Company may waive any or all of the representations set forth above on the advice of counsel that the transfer of an interest to such transferee will not cause the Company to be treated as a corporation for federal income tax purposes, and shall endeavor in good faith to do so if so advised by counsel to the Company upon request for waiver by a Member proposing to transfer, or upon receipt of an opinion from legal counsel to the transferee (provided such legal counsel is of national reputation and specializes in the legal matters involved in such determination) that such transfer will not cause the Company to be treated as a publicly traded partnership within the meaning of Section 7704 of the Code. These representations may from time to time be revised by the Company on the advice of counsel to the extent necessary to ensure that a transfer will not cause the Company to be treated as a corporation for federal income tax purposes.
