(g) Seller shall within five (5) business days of the Closing Date provide Buyer with an electronic version of all patient reports and data from Seller’s laboratory information system for patients for whom Buyer may provide services, in a manner usable by Buyer’s systems, for Buyer’s purpose of maintaining patient historical data and for optimal patient care, to be held in custody by Buyer, and used only to the extent permitted by applicable law, under and pursuant to a joint custodial agreement to be agreed upon in good faith between the Parties in form and substance substantially consistent with the form provided on Buyer’s behalf prior to the date hereof; provided, that Buyer agrees to provide the applicable vendor (NovoPath) with any applicable fees in connection therewith. (h) As soon as practicable following the Closing, but in no event later than ten (10) business days following the Closing Date (or such longer time as reasonably agreed by Buyer), Seller shall pay any amounts remaining on the Equipment, and Seller shall arrange for and cooperate in good faith as to the transfer of the Equipment to Buyer’s premises, and shall make commercially reasonable best effort to have such transfer occur within no more than ten (10) business days following the Closing Date. ARTICLE II PURCHASE PRICE Section 2.01 Purchase Price. (a) The purchase price to be paid by Buyer to Seller for the Designated Assets (the “Purchase Price”) shall be as set forth below in Section 2.01(b). (b) Subject to the adjustments set forth in Section 2.01(b)(iii), the Purchase Price shall be paid as follows: (i) Forty-Five Thousand Ninety-Nine dollars and Twenty-Nine cents ($45,099.29) (the “Closing Payment”), which is the amount that the parties agrees is the current net book value for the Equipment, (calculated as the depreciated value of the Equipment, with depreciation calculated over five (5) years), shall be paid at Closing; (ii) An amount equivalent to one times the New Jersey Medicare Fee Schedule for all tests actually performed by Buyer for CGI Customers during the twelve (12) month period (the “Earn-Out Period”) following the Closing (which amount shall be paid out during the twenty-four (24) month period following the Closing as set forth in sub-clause (iii) below), which the Parties acknowledge will be dependent on the levels of business from the CGI Customers performed by Buyer within the twelve (12) months after Closing (the “Earn-Out”). Notwithstanding the above, if the test is done for a hospital with which Seller currently has a direct billing arrangement, the price for a direct bill test will be the negotiated price with the hospital rather than the NJ Medicare Fee Schedule Price. (iii) Buyer will calculate the monthly Earn-Out payment for the preceding month by the tenth (10th) day of the following month each month during the thirteen (13) months following the Closing, reflecting 100% of the New Jersey Medicare fee schedule of all tests performed by Buyer for -5


 
CGI Customers in the previous month (or the alternative direct billing price pursuant to the terms of Section 2.01(b)(ii)), as indicated by billed CPT codes included in patients’ reports and billing records. One half (1/2) of the full applicable Earn-Out payment for any month in the twelve month period will be due and payable by Buyer by the tenth (10th) day of the following month (the “Initial Payment Date”) (such that, for example, the first payment due in respect of tests performed in July, 2019 will be due on August 10, 2019) with the remaining half to be due and payable on the twelve- (12) month anniversary of such Initial Payment Date (the “Second Payment Date”) (it being acknowledged and agreed that the Earn- Out payments shall be made over a twenty-four (24) month period). Buyer will advance to Seller One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) cash by wire transfer on the date hereof, minus $177,325.51 as the amount that Buyer has spent purchasing reagants for Seller, against future Earn-Out payments (the “Advance”). Any amounts spent by Buyer in purchasing reagants for Seller, in addition to the $177,325.51, after Closing, shall be credited by Buyer against the monthly payments due to Seller. Buyer shall be entitled to a credit against the Advance of 25% of each monthly Earn-Out payment due to Seller hereunder (and pay in cash 75% of the one half (1/2) amount due for that month on the applicable Initial Payment Date, with the remaining balance due and payable in cash on the applicable Second Payment Date) in respect of the first four (4) months after Closing, and thereafter a credit against the Advance of 75% of each monthly Earn-Out payment (with 25% of the one-half (1/2) amount due for that month, to be paid in cash on the applicable Initial Payment Date, with the remaining balance due and payable on the applicable Second Payment Date) until the aggregate amount of such credits against Earn-Out payments equal the $1,000,000 Advance. By way of example only, if 100% of the NJ Medicare fee schedule of all tests performed by Buyer for CGI Customers in July 2019 is equal to $200,000, Buyer would pay Seller $75,000 on August 10, 2019, with $25,000 credited against the Advance, and (assuming that the Advance had been fully set off) $100,000 on August 10, 2020. (iv) At any time after the second monthly Earn-Out payment has been made, Buyer shall have the right to prepay the Earn-Out amounts not yet paid to Seller without penalty by giving Seller a written notice (the “Earn-Out Prepayment Notice”) invoking the right to prepay the remainder of the Earn-Out, as set forth in this sub-clause. Prepayment of the remaining amount shall be made on an amount calculated by taking the amounts paid by Buyer in the months preceding the prepayment, and annualizing that amount. For example, if Buyer decides six (6) months after Closing to prepay the remaining Earn-Out, and the Earn-Out in the first six (6) months after Closing was One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) (calculated based upon the NJ Medicare fee schedule for the tests performed for the CGI Customers), such amount will be annualized to Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000), and the Earn-Out if the prepayment right is invoked shall be Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000). In the event that Buyer delivers an Earn-Out Prepayment Notice, the 50% of Earn-Out payment amounts not yet paid from the time prior to the Earn-Out Prepayment Notice shall continue to be due and payable on the applicable Second Payment Dates, but the remainder of the Earn-Out as annualized pursuant to the Earn-Out Prepayment Notice and as described in the preceding sentence shall be made within thirty (30) days of the Earn-Out Prepayment Notice. For example, in the previous example in this sub-clause (iv), if Buyer delivers an Earn-Out Prepayment Notice on the six- (6) month anniversary of the Closing where the applicable Earn-Out in such initial six (6) month period was One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) of which Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000) should have been paid on the applicable Initial Payment Dates, Buyer shall pay One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) in respect of the remaining six (6) months of the Earn-Out Period within thirty (30) days of delivery of the Earn-Out Prepayment Notice, and the remaining balance of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000) of Earn-Out Payments in respect of initial six (6) month period shall continue to be due and payable on the applicable Second Payment Dates as if the Earn-Out -6


 
Prepayment Notice had not been delivered. Buyer may decide any time prior to making the prepayment to not prepay, in which case Buyer’s obligations under this Section 2.01 shall continue as if the Earn-Out Prepayment Notice had not been delivered. (v) Buyer’s records to the extent directly related to the Earn-Out are subject to audit by Seller. (vi) Buyer will pay Seller only for tests for CGI Customers that are performed in-house at Buyer (except for the Focus NGS panels (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes the lymphoid panels), which will not be performed in-house by the Buyer (until such later time as Buyer chooses to perform such tests in-house) but instead performed at Seller or Seller’s designee, and for which the Buyer shall pay the Seller $1,000 (one-thousand dollars) per test for each test requested by Buyer and performed at Seller’s designee. For clients shared between Buyer and Seller (if any) (“Shared CGI Customers”), a schedule of which Shared CGI Customers is attached as Schedule 2.01(b) (subject to any modifications as determined in good faith as mutually agreed upon by the Parties, the “Shared CGI Customers List”), Buyer will pay Seller based on 100% of the CMS fee schedule for those tests performed by Seller at Seller’s or Seller’s designee’s site for Shared CGI Customers in the first two (2) quarters of 2019. For example, if Seller demonstrates that it performed testing on its, or its designee’s, site for Shared CGI Customers worth $400,000 in the first two (2) quarters of 2019, Buyer will pay Seller $400,000 within thirty (30) days of the end of such period. Section 2.02 Allocation of Purchase Price. The Parties agree that the Purchase Price shall be allocated among the Designated Assets as determined by the Parties in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. ARTICLE III TRANSFER OF TITLE TO DESIGNATED ASSETS Section 3.01 Certain Allocations as of Closing. All accounts receivable of the Clinical Lab Services Business based on services rendered prior to 11:59pm EST on the Closing Date (the “Closing Accounts Receivable”) as determined by the Parties shall remain the property of Seller following the Closing. All accounts receivable relating to the operation of the Clinical Lab Services Business based on services rendered on or after 11:59pm EST on the Closing Date shall be the property of Buyer. For the avoidance of doubt, Seller shall be entitled to bill for and receive all amounts collected, in respect of services rendered by the Clinical Lab Services Business before the Closing, and Buyer shall be entitled to bill for and receive all amounts collected in respect of services rendered by the Clinical Lab Services Business after the Closing. Buyer shall not assume any liabilities or obligations relating to the operation of the Clinical Lab Services Business which are incurred prior to 11:59pm ET on the Closing Date.

Buyer has conducted an independent investigation, review and analysis of the Designated Assets, and based on such investigation, review and analysis, Buyer has formed an independent judgement concerning the Contemplated Transactions and the rights and obligations to be transferred hereunder or pursuant hereto.

ARTICLE VII COVENANTS OF SELLER Section 7.01 Commercially Reasonable Efforts. The Parties agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause all covenants and agreements applicable to such Party to be performed, satisfied, and fulfilled. Section 7.02 Clinical Lab Employees. (a) As of or after the Closing Date, Buyer may, but is not obligated to, offer employment to certain of the employees employed by Seller in connection with the Clinical Lab Services Business, and all employees who are hired by Buyer shall be the “Transferred Employees” as set forth on Schedule 7.02. Each Transferred Employee, at the time such employee accepts employment with Buyer, shall be deemed to have voluntarily resigned from employment with Seller (such time of resignation, as applicable for such Transferred Employee, the “Transfer Date”), and Seller shall not continue to employ any Transferred Employee after such Transferred Employee’s Transfer Date unless otherwise agreed upon by Buyer. (b) Seller shall remain obligated after the Closing for any obligation of Seller to any Transferred Employee which arises prior to such Transferred Employee’s Transfer Date or as a result of the Closing or the termination of such Transferred Employee, including all accrued but unpaid vacation leave, personal days, and other benefits of all Transferred Employees, including, without limitation, hourly pay, commission, bonus, salary, accrued vacation, fringe, pension or profit sharing benefits, or severance pay for any period relating to the service with Seller at any time on or prior to the applicable Transferred Employee’s Transfer Date; all claims for medical, dental, life insurance, health accident, or disability benefits brought by or in respect of current or former employees, officers, directors, independent contractors or consultants of the Clinical Lab Services Business or the spouses, dependents or beneficiaries thereof, which claims relate to events occurring on or prior to the Transfer Date for such Transferred Employee; all worker’s compensation claims of any current or former employees, officers, directors, independent contractors, or consultants of the Clinical Lab Services Business which relate to events occurring on or prior to the Transfer Date for such Transferred Employee; and all group health plan continuation coverage pursuant to the requirements of Section 601, et seq. of ERISA and IRC Section 4980B, for all employees to whom it is required to offer the same under law. (c) For each Transferred Employee, (i) Buyer shall be free to set its own terms and conditions of employment for any employee listed on Schedule 7.02 it seeks to hire and to limit its hiring to those to whom it, in its sole discretion, deems capable of performing to its standards; (ii) neither this nor any other provision of this Agreement nor the consummation of the Contemplated Transactions shall constitute the agreement of Buyer to assume or be bound by the terms and conditions of any employment, collective bargaining, or employee benefit agreement to which Seller may be a party; and (iii) nothing -18


 
herein, express or implied, shall (A) create any third party beneficiary or other rights or confer upon any employee or former employee of Seller (whether or not a Transferred Employee, as defined below) any rights or remedies (including any right to employment or continued employment for any specified period) of any nature or kind whatsoever, under or by reason of this Agreement, (B) limit the right of Buyer or its affiliates to amend, terminate, or otherwise modify any employee benefit plan maintained by Buyer prior to or following the Closing Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Seller may terminate the employment of any employee listed on Schedule 7.02 at any time following the Closing Date, and any such terminated employee who is not hired by Buyer within ten (10) days following such termination shall not be considered a “Transferred Employee” (notwithstanding the fact that such employee may later be hired by Buyer). (d) For the period of one (1) year after Closing, Seller: (i) shall not directly solicit for employment any Transferred Employee, it being understood that routine job postings of open positions and solicitations of a generalized nature shall not be considered direct solicitation hereunder; (ii) except to the extent that the Parties otherwise agree, shall not employ any of such Transferred Employees without the prior approval of Buyer; and (iii) shall not solicit for employment nor hire any employees of Buyer to whom Seller has been introduced in connection with the Contemplated Transactions. Section 7.03 Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation. (a) Seller recognizes that Buyer is purchasing the Designated Assets in reliance on Seller ceasing the operation of its Clinical Lab Services Business. Therefore, Seller agrees that it will not perform any of the clinical lab testing that Seller performed prior to Closing, for hospitals, reference labs or physicians, for a three (3) year period after Closing (it being understood that Seller shall be permitted to continue to perform such tests for such non-hospital, non-physician or non-reference lab customers as part of its Biopharma and Discovery businesses as currently conducted, including for purposes of clinical trials). Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 7.03(a) and the restrictions set forth herein shall be deemed null, void and of no further force or effect for all purposes in the event of a change of control in, acquisition by an unaffiliated third party of more than fifty percent (50%) of the outstanding common stock of, direct or indirect acquisition of all or substantially all the assets of, or a merger or other substantially similar acquisition of, Seller (a “Change of Control”); provided, however, for the avoidance of doubt, the sale of Seller’s Biopharma business to Interpace Diagnostics Group, Inc. or an affiliate thereof shall not be deemed a Change of Control. (b) Seller agrees that it, and its subsidiaries or affiliates of which Seller has control or majority ownership, shall not, directly or indirectly, solicit, seek business from, or contact for any purpose, other than its Biopharma or Discovery businesses as currently conducted, any CGI Customer, for a period of three (3) years after Closing (it being acknowledged and agreed that the restriction set forth in this Section 7.03(b) shall continue to apply in the event of a Change of Control). Seller agrees that, in the event of a Change of Control, it shall obtain from the applicable third party acquirer or similar controlling -19


 
entity in connection with such Change of Control, a binding agreement (enforceable by Buyer) that contains an affirmative obligation of such Purchaser to comply with the covenants in this Section 7.03(b). (c) Seller agrees to fully enforce any restrictive covenant or non-solicitation provision that it has with any of its employees or contractors regarding the Clinical Lab Services Business, and that Buyer may enforce such restrictive covenant or non-solicitation provision if not fully enforced by Seller. (d) Seller may retain copies of the CGI Customers List and any Clinical Lab Services Business Materials (collectively, “Retained Copies”) solely to the extent, and for only so long as, (i) necessary to provide Buyer with the transition support required or contemplated by this Agreement or (ii) required to comply with applicable law, and, at such time as any Retained Copies are not necessary or required to be maintained in connection with the foregoing, Seller shall promptly and permanently delete and destroy any such Retained Copies from its records (physical, electronic or otherwise). Notwithstanding the foregoing, following the Closing, Seller shall at no time use any Retained Copies in violation of any of the restrictive covenants or non-solicitation provisions contained in Section 7.03(a) or Section 7.03(b); provided, however, that the obligation in this Section 7.03(d) shall survive indefinitely notwithstanding the last sentence of Section 7.03(a). (e) Following the Closing, Seller shall at no time use its present name in connection with the Clinical Lab Services Business or in violation of any of the restrictive covenants or non- solicitation provisions contained in Section 7.03(a) or Section 7.03(b); provided, however, that the obligation in this Section 7.03(e) shall survive indefinitely notwithstanding the last sentence of Section 7.03(a). (f) Notwithstanding anything contrary in this Agreement, Seller agrees that, following the Closing, Seller will no longer use the name “Cancer Genetics, Inc.,” “Cancer Genetics,” “CGI” or any derivative or similar name (the “CGI Name”) in connection with the Clinical Lab Services Business, and, as referenced above in Section 7.03(d), CGI will not retain the CGI Customer List or any Clinical Lab Services Business Materials except as allowed under Section 7.03(d) or as required under this Agreement for Seller to fulfill its post-Closing obligations to Buyer. To the extent that Seller has any right or access to the CGI Customer List or any Clinical Lab Services Business protocols or policies, Seller agrees not to utilize such after Closing in connection with the Clinical Lab Services Business except to comply with its obligations to Buyer under this Agreement, and Seller agrees that, in the event of a Change of Control, it shall obtain from the applicable third party acquirer or similar controlling entity in connection with such Change of Control, a binding agreement (enforceable by Buyer) that contains an affirmative obligation of such Purchaser to comply with the covenants in this Section 7.03(f). (g) Buyer and Seller acknowledge that the restrictive periods contained in this Section 7.03 are reasonable under the circumstances. Moreover, it is the desire and intent of the Parties that the provisions of Section 7.03 be enforceable to the fullest extent permissible under the laws and public policies applied in each jurisdiction in which enforcement is sought. Accordingly, the Parties agree that if any Governmental Authority determines subsequently that the terms of Section 7.03 are unenforceable, the Parties will request that such Governmental Authority reform the terms by specifying the greatest time period and/or geographic area that would not render the terms unenforceable. Seller specifically agrees that, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of Section 7.03 by Seller, Buyer would suffer irreparable injury and damages at law would be an insufficient remedy, and Buyer shall be entitled to seek equitable -20


 
relief by way of temporary or permanent injunction (or any other equitable remedies), without proof of actual damages and without the need to post bond or other security. Section 7.04 Transition of Clinical Lab Assets Records. Seller shall prepare and use commercially reasonable best efforts to facilitate all forms, consents, and authorizations for all CGI Customers who receive services from Buyer after the Closing.

Within ten (10) business days of the Closing Date, Seller shall deliver to Buyer, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Buyer and its counsel, UCC-3 termination statements terminating all financing statements filed against CGI, solely to the extent necessary to evidence the discharge, removal and termination of any and all liens or encumbrances to which any of the Equipment is subject. Section 7.07 Equipment Maintenance Service Agreement. At the request of Buyer, Seller shall cooperate in good faith to, as promptly as practicable, to cause any maintenance service agreement with respect to the Equipment to be assigned to and assumed by Buyer, or use commercially reasonable best efforts to facilitate Buyer’s entry into any new maintenance service agreement to the extent required. Section 7.08 Insurance to cover claims that may arise after Closing. Seller agrees to continue (for not less than three (3) years) the insurance policies for itself and any Transferred Employee to the extent necessary to protect itself or such Transferred Employees from claims for any actions taken prior to Closing. Section 7.09 Bulk Sales Laws. Buyer and Seller hereby waive compliance with the provisions of any applicable bulk sales law or similar laws that may be applicable to the sale or transfer of the Designated Assets; provided, however, that Seller shall be liable for and shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Buyer and its representatives from and against any tax imposed on Buyer or any of its representatives as a result of the application of any bulk sales law or similar laws to the extent such tax is imposed as a result of the sale of transfer of the Designated Assets per the terms of this Agreement. Section 7.10 Post-Closing Audits. Any Liabilities related to audits conducted by payers for the periods prior to Closing shall remain the responsibility of Seller regardless of whether such audits occur after the Closing Date. Buyer agrees -21


 
to use commercially reasonable efforts to assist Seller and accommodate payer audits that occur after the Closing Date. ARTICLE VIII ADDITIONAL COVENANTS Section 8.01 Expenses.

The Parties shall use their respective commercially reasonable efforts to secure and to assist either Party in securing any permit, consent, or waiver from any person, entity, or Governmental Authority, which may be reasonably required for the consummation of the Contemplated Transactions and for the operation of the Clinical Lab Services Business by Buyer; provided, however, that any fees or other payments made to secure any such permit, consent or waiver shall be the sole responsibility of, and borne by, Buyer. Section 8.04 Confidentiality. Buyer and Seller agree that they will not, without the prior written consent of the other Party, issue, give, or make any press release, notification, or disclosure to any third party or to the public, in each case relating to this Agreement or any of the terms or conditions hereof or any of the Contemplated Transactions, except as required to perform the obligations of the Parties hereunder, including obtaining any consent or approval required by this Agreement, or as required by laws; provided, however, that the Parties shall mutually agree upon a press release to be issued by the Parties after the Closing.

Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of the date hereof, between Buyer and Seller (as amended, modified or supplemented from time to time in accordance with its terms, the “Purchase Agreement”). W I T N E S S E T H: WHEREAS, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, Seller has agreed to sell, convey, set over, assign, transfer, and deliver to Buyer, and Buyer has agreed to purchase and acquire from Seller, free and clear of any and all liens and encumbrances, all of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to the Designated Assets, as more particularly set forth in the Purchase Agreement; and WHEREAS, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, from and after the Closing Date, Buyer has agreed to assume, perform and pay the Assumed Liabilities, to the extent the Assumed Liabilities are not incurred or resulting from any violation by Seller of any applicable laws, or any breach or default by Seller under any Contract with any person or any representation, warrant or covenant of such Seller noted therein, as more particularly set forth in the Purchase Agreement. NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained in the Purchase Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties, intending to be legally bound, hereby agree as follows: 1. Effective as of the Closing Date, in accordance with and subject to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, Seller hereby sells, conveys, sets over, assigns, transfers and delivers to Buyer, and Buyer hereby purchases and acquires from Seller, free and clear of any and all liens and encumbrances, all of seller’s right, title and interest in and to all the tangible personal property included in the Designated Assets, as more particularly set forth in the Purchase Agreement. Seller hereby authorizes Buyer to take any appropriate action to protect the right, title and interest hereby conveyed in connection with the aforesaid property hereby sold, conveyed, set over, assigned, transferred and delivered to Buyer against each and every person or persons whomsoever claiming or asserting any claim against any or all of the same. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Seller has not, and shall not be deemed to have hereunder sold, conveyed, set over, assigned, transferred or delivered to Buyer any portion of any Excluded Asset, and Seller retains all right, title and interest in and to the Excluded Assets. 2. Effective as of the Closing Date, in accordance with and subject to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, Seller hereby sells, conveys, sets over, assigns, transfers and delivers to Buyer, and Buyer hereby purchases and acquires from Seller, free and clear of any and all liens and encumbrances, all of seller’s right, title and interest in and to the Designated Assets, 204558043


 
including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Intellectual Property and the Contracts, as more particularly set forth in the Purchase Agreement. Seller hereby authorizes Buyer to take any appropriate action to protect the right, title and interest hereby conveyed in connection with the aforesaid property hereby sold, conveyed, set over, assigned, transferred and delivered to Buyer against each and every person or persons whomsoever claiming or asserting any claim against any or all of the same. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Seller has not, and shall not be deemed to have hereunder sold, conveyed, set over, assigned, transferred or delivered to Buyer any portion of any Excluded Asset, and Seller retains all right, title and interest in and to the Excluded Assets. 3. Effective as of the Closing Date, in accordance with and subject to the terms of the Purchase Agreement, the Buyer does hereby assume and agree to perform and pay the Assumed Liabilities, to the extent the same are not incurred or resulting from any violation by Seller of any applicable laws, or any breach or default by Seller under any Contract with any person or any representation, warrant or covenant of such Seller noted therein, as more particularly set forth in the Purchase Agreement, and Seller shall have no further liability, obligation or responsibility therefor. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, nothing herein shall modify the scope of any indemnity obligation created under the Purchase Agreement. Notwithstanding this Paragraph 3, the Assumed Liabilities shall exclude the Excluded Liabilities, and Seller shall retain all of its right, title and interest in and to the Excluded Liabilities. 4. This Assignment and Assumption and Bill of Sale and the Asset Purchase Agreement (in each case, including all Schedules and Exhibits hereto and thereto) contain the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, oral or written, with respect to such matters, except for any written agreement of the Parties that expressly provides that it is not superseded by this Assignment and Assumption and Bill of Sale or the Asset Purchase Agreement. Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit the rights, duties and obligations of the Parties under the Asset Purchase Agreement and, to the extent of any conflict between the terms and conditions of this Assignment and Assumption and Bill of Sale and the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement, the terms and conditions of the Asset Purchase Agreement shall govern, supersede and prevail. 5. The following provisions of the Asset Purchase Agreement are hereby incorporated by reference, substituting, in each such section, the term “Assignment and Assumption and Bill of Sale” as defined herein for the term “Agreement” as defined in the Purchase Agreement: Section 10.02 (Amendment); Section 10.04 (Notice); Section 10.05 (Counterparts); Section 10.06 (Severability); Section 10.07 (Binding Nature); Section 10.08 (Waivers of Breach) and Section 10.09 (Governing Law; Waiver of Jury Trial).
