Item 1.01    Entry into a Definitive Material Agreement.

On October 15, 2018, Luna Technologies, Inc. (the “Buyer”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Luna Innovations Incorporated (“Luna”), entered into and closed an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) with Micron Optics, Inc. (the “Seller”) and Luna, solely as the Buyer guarantor. Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Buyer acquired substantially all of the Seller’s assets, other than cash, as well as specified liabilities, for total cash consideration of $5.0 million, including $4.0 million paid at closing, and $1.0 million placed in escrow until later of October 1, 2019 or the date that specified matters are resolved as agreed by the Buyer and the Seller (altogether, the “Transaction”). The purchase price is subject to positive or negative adjustment based upon the final determination of working capital of the Seller compared to a target working capital amount specified in the Asset Purchase Agreement.

The Asset Purchase Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and indemnities. As a part of the Transaction, the Buyer has agreed to retain the Seller’s Atlanta, Georgia facility and extend employment offers to all active employees of the Seller. In addition, for a period of five years after closing, the Seller has agreed not to compete or engage in any competing business and not to solicit customers, employees or consultants of the Buyer, subject to specified exceptions.

The foregoing summary is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Asset Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 2.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference. The representations, warranties and covenants contained in the Asset Purchase Agreement were made only for the purposes of the Asset Purchase Agreement, were made as of specific dates, and were made solely for the benefit of the parties to the Asset Purchase Agreement and may not have been intended to be statements of fact but, rather, as a method of allocating risk and governing the contractual rights and relationships among the parties to the Asset Purchase Agreement. The assertions embodied in those representations and warranties may be subject to important qualifications and limitations agreed to by the parties in connection with negotiating their respective terms. Moreover, the representations and warranties may be subject to a contractual standard of materiality that may be different from what may be viewed as material to stockholders of Luna. For the foregoing reasons, none of Luna’s stockholders or any other person should rely on such representations and warranties, or any characterizations thereof, as statements of factual information at the time they were made or otherwise.

(c)    If the Final Net Working Capital is more than $50,000 less than the Net Working Capital Target, then Seller shall cause to be paid to Buyer, as an adjustment to the Purchase Price, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, an amount in cash equal to the difference between the Net Working Capital Target and the Final Net Working Capital, within 3 Business Days after determination of Final Net Working Capital pursuant to Section 2.8(f). Buyer may elect, in its sole and absolute discretion, that any such payment owed by Seller to Buyer pursuant to this Section 2.8(c) be paid (i) by the Escrow Agent from the Escrow Amount pursuant to the terms of the Escrow Agreement or (ii) by Seller from its own funds.
(d)    If the Final Net Working Capital is more than $50,000 greater than the Net Working Capital Target, then Buyer shall cause to be paid to Seller, as an adjustment to the Purchase Price, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, an amount in cash equal to the difference between the Net Working Capital Target and the Final Net Working Capital, within 3 Business Days after determination of Final Net Working Capital pursuant to Section 2.8(f).
(e)    If the Final Net Working Capital is within $50,000 of the Net Working Capital Target, there shall be no payment by either Buyer or Seller pursuant to this Section 2.8.
(f)    Within 45 days following receipt by Seller of the Net Working Capital Statement, Seller shall either inform Buyer in writing that the Net Working Capital Statement is acceptable, or deliver written notice (the “Notice of Disagreement”) to Buyer of any dispute Seller has with respect to the preparation or content of the Net Working Capital Statement or the Final Net Working Capital reflected in the Net Working Capital Statement. The Notice of Disagreement must describe in reasonable detail the items contained in the Net Working Capital Statement that Seller disputes and the disputed amount of any such disputes. Any items not identified on the Notice of Disagreement shall be deemed agreed to by Seller and all amounts that are not in dispute shall be paid by the party owing such payment by wire transfer of immediately available funds no later than three (3) Business Days after the time period in which Seller may deliver the Notice of Disagreement expires. If Seller does not notify Buyer of a dispute with respect to the Net Working Capital Statement within such 45-day period, such Net Working Capital Statement and the Final Net Working Capital reflected in the Net Working Capital Statement will be final, conclusive and binding on the parties. In the event a Notice of Disagreement is delivered to Buyer, Buyer and Seller shall negotiate in good faith to resolve such dispute. If Buyer and Seller, notwithstanding such good faith effort, fail to resolve such dispute within 10 Business Days after Seller advises Buyer of its objections, then Buyer and Seller jointly shall engage the Accounting Expert to resolve such dispute in accordance with the standards set forth in this Section 2.8(f). The Seller and Buyer shall use reasonable efforts to cause the Accounting Expert to render a written decision resolving the matters submitted to the Accounting Expert within 30 days of the making of such submission. The scope of the disputes to be resolved by the Accounting Expert shall be limited only to the items in dispute that were included in the Notice of Disagreement and if such items were calculated in accordance with Applicable Accounting Principles and the Accounting Expert shall determine, on such basis, whether and to what extent, the Net Working Capital Statement and the Final Net Working Capital reflected in the Net Working Capital Statement, require adjustment. The Final Net Working Capital, as adjusted by the Accounting Expert, shall be deemed the Final Net Working Capital. The Accounting Expert is not to make any other determination, including any determination as to whether the Net Working Capital Target is correct. The Accounting Expert’s decision shall be based solely on presentations by Buyer and Seller (and not independent review) and made in strict accordance with the terms of this Agreement, without regard for principles of equity. The Accounting Expert shall apply the relevant provisions of this Agreement to the disputed amounts, and shall have no authority to alter, modify, amend, add to or subtract from any term of provision of this Agreement. The Accounting Expert shall not assign a value to any item in dispute greater than the greatest value for such item assigned to it by Buyer, on the one hand, or Seller, on the other hand, or less than the smallest value for such item assigned to it by Buyer, on the one hand, or Seller, on the other hand. The fees and expenses of the Accounting Expert shall be borne in the same proportion that the aggregate dollar amount of such remaining disputed items so submitted to the Accounting Expert that are unsuccessfully disputed by Buyer, on the one hand, and Seller, on the other hand, as finally determined by the Accounting Expert, bears to the total dollar amount of such remaining disputed items so submitted. All determinations made by the Accounting Expert will be final, conclusive and binding on the parties.
2.9
CONSENTS
(a)    If any Material Consent is not obtained (or for any other Consent to assignment of a Seller Contract reasonably requested by Buyer to be obtained after Closing) or if any attempted assignment would be ineffective or would impair Buyer’s rights under the Purchased Asset in question so that Buyer would not in effect acquire the benefit of all such rights, Seller and Buyer, to the maximum extent permitted by Legal Requirement and in respect of the underlying Purchased Asset, shall cooperate after the Closing in order to: (i) obtain for Buyer the benefits thereunder, to enforce, at the request of and for the account of the Buyer at Buyer’s expense, any rights of Seller or its Affiliates arising thereunder against any Person, including the right to elect to terminate in accordance with the terms thereof upon the direction of the Buyer; and (ii) make any other reasonable arrangement designed to provide such benefits to Buyer. To the extent Buyer is provided with the benefits of any such Purchased Asset, Buyer shall perform the obligations of Seller or its Affiliates thereunder.

If and when any such Material Consent (or other requested Consent) is obtained, Seller shall promptly assign, transfer, convey and deliver the applicable Purchased Asset to Buyer, and Buyer shall promptly assume the associated Assumed Liabilities and Buyer and Seller shall execute such transfer, assignment and assumption document as may be reasonably requested.
(b)    With respect to any Seller Contracts not assumed by Buyer, at the reasonable request and direction of Buyer, Seller shall enforce its rights thereunder, at Buyer’s expense and to the benefit of Buyer. To the extent Seller learns or is made aware that the counterparty is in breach of any such Seller Contract, Seller shall promptly notify Buyer of same.
2.10
ESCROW FUND
The Escrow Amount delivered by Buyer at Closing pursuant to the Escrow Agreement shall be held in an escrow account and shall serve as security for payment of any indemnification obligations of Seller (the “Escrow Fund”). If there are no outstanding claims for indemnification by Buyer as of the Escrow Termination Date, all amounts remaining in the Escrow Fund shall be distributed by the Escrow Agent in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement to Seller. If there are outstanding claims for indemnification by the Buyer Indemnified Parties on the Escrow Termination Date, all amounts remaining in the Escrow Fund, less the disputed amount corresponding to each such outstanding claim, shall be distributed by the Escrow Agent in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Escrow Agreement to Seller; provided, that the remaining balance of any amounts withheld with respect to each outstanding claim shall be distributed to Seller upon resolution and final satisfaction of such outstanding claim in accordance with Article 11 and the provisions of the Escrow Agreement. Final distribution of the Escrow Fund shall be made net of any accrued fees and expenses of the Escrow Agent then outstanding.

None of the Employee Plans has been the subject of, and no event has occurred or condition exists that could be deemed, a reportable event (as defined in Section 4043 of ERISA) as to which a notice would be required (without regard to regulatory monetary thresholds) to be filed with the PBGC. Seller has paid in full all insurance premiums due to the PBGC with regard to the Employee Plans for all applicable periods ending on or before the Closing Date.
(e)    Neither Seller nor any ERISA Affiliate has any liability or has Knowledge of any facts or circumstances that might give rise to any liability, and the Contemplated Transactions will not result in any liability, (i) for the termination of or withdrawal from any Employee Plan under Sections 4062, 4063 or 4064 of ERISA, (ii) for any lien imposed under Section 302(f) of ERISA or Section 412(n) of the Code, (iii) for any interest payments required under Section 302(e) of ERISA or Section 412(m) of the Code, (iv) for any excise tax imposed by Section 4971 of the Code, (v) for any minimum funding contributions under Section 302(c)(11) of ERISA or Section 412(c)(11) of the Code or (vi) for withdrawal from any Multiemployer Plan under Section 4201 of ERISA.

(g)    Except as set forth in Schedule 3.16(g), each Welfare Benefit Plan that is a “group health plan” within the meaning of Section 5000(b)(1) of the Code and Section 607(1) of ERISA has been administered in material compliance with, and Seller has otherwise materially complied with the requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 and the regulations promulgated thereunder; and (ii) the Medicare Secondary Payor Provisions of Section 1862 of the Social Security Act and the regulations promulgated thereunder.

Neither Seller nor any fiduciary of an Employee Plan has violated the requirements of Section 404 of ERISA. All required reports and descriptions of the Employee Plans (including Internal Revenue Service Form 5500 Annual Reports, Summary Annual Reports and Summary Plan Descriptions and Summaries of Material Modifications) have been (when required) timely filed with the IRS, the U.S. Department of Labor or other Governmental Body and distributed as required, and all notices required by ERISA or the Code or any other Legal Requirement with respect to the Employee Plans have been appropriately given.

Each Employee Welfare Benefit Plan (as defined in Section 3(1) of ERISA) that utilizes a funding vehicle described in Section 501(c)(9) of the Code or is subject to the provisions of Section 505 of the Code has been the subject of a notification by the IRS that such funding vehicle qualifies for tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(9) of the Code or that the plan complies with Section 505 of the Code, unless the IRS does not, as a matter of policy, issue such notification with respect to the particular type of plan. With respect to each Employee Plan, no event has occurred or condition exists that will or could give rise to a loss of any intended tax consequence or to any Tax under Section 511 of the Code.
(j)    There is no material pending or to the Knowledge of Seller threatened Proceeding relating to any Employee Plan, nor is there any basis for any such Proceeding. Neither Seller nor any fiduciary of an Employee Plan has engaged in a transaction with respect to any Employee Plan that, assuming the taxable period of such transaction expired as of the date hereof, could subject Seller or Buyer to a Tax or penalty imposed by either Section 4975 of the Code or Section 502(l) of ERISA or a violation of Section 406 of ERISA. The Contemplated Transactions will not result in the potential assessment of a Tax or penalty under Section 4975 of the Code or Section 502(l) of ERISA nor result in a violation of Section 406 of ERISA.
(k)    Seller has maintained workers’ compensation coverage as required by applicable state law through purchase of insurance and not by self-insurance or otherwise.
(l)    Except as set forth on Schedule 3.16(l) or required by Legal Requirements and as provided in Section 10.1(d), the consummation of the Contemplated Transactions will not accelerate the time of vesting or the time of payment, or increase the amount, of compensation due to any director, employee, officer, former employee or former officer of Seller. There are no contracts or arrangements providing for change of control payments that could subject any person to liability for tax under Section 4999 of the Code.
(m)    Except for the continuation coverage requirements of COBRA, Seller has no obligations or potential liability for benefits to employees, former employees or their respective dependents following termination of employment or retirement under any of the Employee Plans that are Employee Welfare Benefit Plans.
(n)    No written or oral representations have been made to any employee or former employee of Seller promising or guaranteeing any employer payment or funding for the continuation of medical, dental, life or disability coverage for any period of time beyond the end of the current plan year (except to the extent of coverage required under COBRA). No written or oral representations have been made to any employee or former employee of Seller concerning the employee benefits of Buyer.
(o)    Each plan that is a “non-qualified deferred compensation plan” (as defined in Section 409A(d)(1) of the Code) and any award thereunder, in each case that is subject to Section 409A of the Code, has since January 1, 2005, been, in all material respects, in compliance with Section 409A of the Code, to the extent required by applicable guidance, and Seller has no obligation to indemnify any individual for any taxes imposed under Section 409A of the Code.

(i)    all contributions required by the terms of such Multiemployer Plan and any collective bargaining agreement have been made when due; and
(ii)    Seller would not be subject to any withdrawal liability under Part 1 of Subtitle E of Title IV of ERISA if, as of the date hereof, Seller were to engage in a “complete withdrawal” (as defined in ERISA Section 4203) or a “partial withdrawal” (as defined in ERISA Section 4205) from such Multiemployer Plan.

Additional Covenants
10.1
EMPLOYEES AND EMPLOYEE BENEFITS
(a)    Information on Active Employees. For the purpose of this Agreement, the term “Active Employees” shall mean all employees employed on the Closing Date by Seller for its Business who are employed exclusively in Seller’s Business as currently conducted, including employees on temporary leave of absence, including family medical leave, military leave, temporary disability or sick leave, but excluding employees on long-term disability leave.
(b)    Employment of Active Employees by Buyer.
(i)    Buyer shall be given reasonable access to such key employee of Seller as Buyer reasonably identifies for the purpose of discussing employment terms and Buyer shall offer employment effective on the Closing to all or substantially all of the Active Employees of the Seller as of the Closing, except as set forth in Section 10.1(g)(iv). Any such Active Employees of the Seller as of the Closing who accept and continue employment with the Buyer shall be referred to herein as “Transferred Employees”.
(ii)     Subject to Legal Requirements, Buyer will have reasonable access to the facilities and personnel Records (including performance appraisals, disciplinary actions, grievances and medical Records) of Seller. Access will be provided by Seller upon reasonable prior notice during normal business hours. Effective immediately before the Closing, Seller will terminate the employment of all of the Transferred Employees. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Seller shall terminate prior to Closing any express employment agreements with any Active Employees and provide evidence of same to Buyer.
(iii)    It is understood and agreed that Buyer’s express intent to extend offers of employment as set forth in this Section 10.1 shall not constitute any commitment, Contract or understanding (expressed or implied) of any obligation on the part of Buyer to a post-Closing employment relationship of any fixed term or duration or upon any terms or conditions other than those that Buyer may establish pursuant to individual offers of employment, and any employment offered by Buyer is “at will” and may be terminated by Buyer or by an employee at any time for any reason (subject to any written commitments to the contrary made by Buyer or an employee and Legal Requirements). Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to prevent or restrict in any way the right of Buyer to terminate, reassign, promote or demote any of the Transferred Employees after the Closing or to change adversely or favorably the title, powers, duties, responsibilities, functions, locations, salaries, other compensation or terms or conditions of employment of such employees.
(iv)    Seller and Buyer agree to cooperate in good faith to determine whether any notification may be required under the WARN Act or any similar state or local Legal Requirement as a result of the Contemplated Transactions and agree to comply with their respective obligations, if any, under the WARN Act and any other similar state or local Legal Requirement.
(c)    Salaries and Benefits.

(ii)    Seller shall be directly liable for any claims made or incurred by Active Employees and their beneficiaries under all Employee Plans. For purposes of the immediately preceding sentence, a charge will be deemed incurred, in the case of hospital, medical or dental benefits, when the services that are the subject of the charge are performed and, in the case of other benefits (such as disability or life insurance), when an event has occurred or when a condition has been diagnosed that entitles the employee to the benefit.
(iii)    For purposes of Buyer’s employee benefit plans, each Transferred Employee will be credited with his or her years of service with the Seller prior to the Closing (including predecessor or acquired entities or any other entities for which the Seller has given credit for prior service), to the same extent as such Transferred Employee was entitled, prior to the Closing, to credit for such service under the corresponding Employee Plan), except (A) for any purpose where service credit for the applicable period is not provided to participants generally, or (B) to the extent such credit would result in a duplication of benefits.
(d)    Seller’s 401(k) Savings Plans. Seller shall (i) terminate the Micron Optics, Inc. 401(k) Plan (the “401(k) Plan”) as soon as practicable, (ii) cause the account balances of all participants in the 401(k) Plan to be fully vested effective immediately prior to the Closing Date; and (iii) take any actions necessary to ensure that the account balances of participants in the 401(k) Plan are distributable from the 401(k) Plan on, or as soon as administratively practicable after, the Closing Date. As of the Closing Date, Buyer shall cover (or cause to be covered) each Transferred Employee under a defined contribution plan qualified under Sections 401(a) and 401(k) of the Code (the “Buyer Plan”). Buyer shall cause each Transferred Employee who (i) was a participant in the 401(k) Plan, (ii) has an account balance under the 401(k) Plan and (iii) is then an employee of Buyer, to be permitted to roll over such account balance (including any outstanding loan) to the Buyer Plan, provided that such rollover is elected by the eligible Transferred Employee before the first anniversary of the Closing Date.
(e)    No Transfer of Assets. Seller shall not make any transfer of pension or other employee benefit plan assets to Buyer.
(f)    Collective Bargaining Matters, Severance. Buyer will set its own initial terms and conditions of employment for the Transferred Employees and others it may hire, including work rules, benefits and salary and wage structure, all as permitted by law. Buyer is not obligated to assume any collective bargaining agreements under this Agreement. Seller shall be solely liable for any severance payment required to be made to its employees due to the Contemplated Transactions.
(g)    General Employee Provisions.
(i)    Seller and Buyer shall give any notices required by Legal Requirements and take whatever other actions with respect to the plans, programs and policies described in this Section 10.1 as may be necessary to carry out the arrangements described in this Section 10.1.
(ii)    Seller and Buyer shall provide each other with such plan documents and summary plan descriptions, employee data or other information as may be reasonably required to carry out the arrangements described in this Section 10.1.
(iii)    If any of the arrangements described in this Section 10.1 are determined by the IRS or other Governmental Body to be prohibited by law, Seller and Buyer shall modify such arrangements to as closely as possible reflect their expressed intent and retain the allocation of economic benefits and burdens to the parties contemplated herein in a manner that is not prohibited by law.
(iv)    Seller shall provide Buyer with completed I-9 forms and attachments with respect to all Transferred Employees, except for such employees as Seller certifies in writing to Buyer are exempt from such requirement. While Buyer anticipates extending offers of employment to substantially all of Seller’s Active Employees subject to applicable Legal Requirements, Buyer shall have no responsibility to offer employment to any Active Employee for whom an I-9 form has not been furnished.
(v)    Buyer shall not have any responsibility, liability or obligation, whether to Active Employees, former employees, their beneficiaries or to any other Person, with respect to any employee benefit plans, practices, programs or arrangements (including the establishment, operation or termination thereof and the notification and provision of COBRA coverage extension) maintained by Seller.
10.2
PAYMENT OF ALL TAXES RESULTING FROM SALE OF ASSETS BY SELLER

On or before the Closing Date, Seller shall remove all Excluded Assets from the Facilities.
10.7
ASSISTANCE IN PROCEEDINGS
(a)    Seller will, provided that Buyer shall reimburse Seller’s out-of-pocket expenses, cooperate with Buyer and its counsel in the contest or defense of, and make available its personnel and provide any testimony and access to its books and Records in connection with, any Proceeding involving or relating to (a) any Contemplated Transaction or (b) any action, activity, circumstance, condition, conduct, event, fact, failure to act, incident, occurrence, plan, practice, situation, status or transaction on or before the Closing Date involving Seller or its Business..
(b)    Seller agrees to assist Buyer, as reasonably requested by Buyer, in the preparation of any required financial statements or other disclosures required by the rules and regulations of the SEC (including Regulation S-X) relating to Seller, including, without limitation, in the preparation of post-Closing financial statements (including pro forma financial statements) and the timely preparation of required SEC reports to be filed or furnished by Buyer. In connection with the foregoing, Seller agrees to provide access to financial and other relevant information, as needed, in order to prepare such required financial statements and make such other disclosures. 

10.8
NONCOMPETITION, NONSOLICITATION AND NONDISPARAGEMENT
(a)    Noncompetition. For a period of 5 years after the Closing Date (the “Restricted Period”), Seller shall not, anywhere in the United States, directly or indirectly invest in, own, manage, operate, finance, control, advise, render services to or guarantee the obligations of any Person engaged in or planning to become engaged in a business that competes with the Business (“Competing Business”), provided, however, that Seller may purchase or otherwise acquire up to (but not more than) 2% of any class of the securities of any Person (but may not otherwise participate in the activities of such Person) if such securities are listed on any national or regional securities exchange or have been registered under Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act.

(iv)    hire, retain or attempt to hire or retain any employee or independent contractor of Buyer or in any way interfere with the relationship between Buyer and any of its employees or independent contractors.

(d)    Modification of Covenant. If a final judgment of a court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction determines that any term or provision contained in Section 10.8(a) through (c) is invalid or unenforceable, then the parties agree that the court or tribunal will have the power to reduce the scope, duration or geographic area of the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases or to replace any invalid or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision. This Section 10.8 will be enforceable as so modified after the expiration of the time within which the judgment may be appealed. This Section 10.8 is reasonable and necessary to protect and preserve Buyer’s legitimate business interests and the value of the Purchased Assets and to prevent any unfair advantage conferred on Seller.
10.9
CUSTOMER AND OTHER BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS
After the Closing, Seller will cooperate with Buyer, provided that Buyer shall reimburse Seller’s out-of-pocket expenses and compensate personnel (other than Transferred Employees) reasonably for their time, in its efforts to continue and maintain for the benefit of Buyer those business relationships of Seller existing prior to the Closing and relating to the Business, including relationships with lessors, employees, regulatory authorities, licensors, customers, suppliers and others, and Seller will satisfy the Retained Liabilities in a manner that is not detrimental to any of such relationships. Seller will refer to Buyer all business inquiries relating to the Business.

With respect to any such claim, Seller shall submit such claim and use its commercially reasonable efforts to administer such claims on behalf of the Buyer and to seek reasonable recovery under the applicable insurance provisions of the Insurance Policies covering Losses related to the Business to the same extent as it would if such Losses were Losses of Seller and to the extent that the terms and conditions of any such policies so allow and Seller shall pay to Buyer the amount of such recovery within 30 days after receipt thereof.
10.13    SELLER RECEIVABLES AND PAYABLES

11.5
INDEMNIFICATION PROCEDURES
The party making a claim under this Section 11 is referred to as the “Indemnified Party”, and the party against whom such claims are asserted under this Section 11 is referred to as the “Indemnifying Party”.
(a)    Third Party Claims. If any Indemnified Party receives notice of the assertion or commencement of any Proceeding made or brought by any Person who is not a party to this Agreement or an Affiliate of a party to this Agreement or a Representative of the foregoing (a “Third Party Claim”) against such Indemnified Party with respect to which the Indemnifying Party is obligated to provide indemnification under this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than 30 days after receipt of such notice of such Third Party Claim. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, (i) unless the applicable survival period has expired pursuant to Section 11.1 or (ii) except and only to the extent that the Indemnifying Party forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure. Such notice by the Indemnified Party shall describe the Third Party Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to participate in, or by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party, to assume the defense of any Third Party Claim at the Indemnifying Party’s expense and by the Indemnifying Party’s own counsel, and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate in good faith in such defense; provided, that if the Indemnifying Party is Seller, such Indemnifying Party shall not have the right to defend or direct the defense of any such Third Party Claim that (x) is asserted directly by or on behalf of a Person that is a supplier or customer of the Business, or (y) seeks an injunction or other equitable relief against the Indemnified Party. In the event that the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any Third Party Claim, subject to Section 11.5(b), it shall have the right to take such action as it deems necessary to avoid, dispute, defend, appeal or make counterclaims pertaining to any such Third Party Claim in the name and on behalf of the Indemnified Party. The Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in the defense of any Third Party Claim with counsel selected by it subject to the Indemnifying Party’s right to control the defense thereof. The fees and disbursements of such counsel shall be at the expense of the Indemnified Party, provided, that if in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the Indemnified Party, (A) there are legal defenses available to an Indemnified Party that are different from or additional to those available to the Indemnifying Party; or (B) there exists a conflict of interest between the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party that cannot be waived, the Indemnifying Party shall be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel to the Indemnified Party in each jurisdiction for which the Indemnified Party determines counsel is required. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to compromise or defend such Third Party Claim, fails to promptly notify the Indemnified Party in writing of its election to defend as provided in this Agreement, or fails to diligently prosecute the defense of such Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party may, subject to Section 11.5(b), pay, compromise, defend such Third Party Claim and seek indemnification for any and all Losses based upon, arising from or relating to such Third Party Claim. Seller and Buyer shall cooperate with each other in all reasonable respects in connection with the defense of any Third Party Claim, including making available (subject to the provisions of Article 12) records relating to such Third Party Claim and furnishing, without expense (other than reimbursement of actual out-of-pocket expenses) to the defending party, management employees of the non-defending party as may be reasonably necessary for the preparation of the defense of such Third Party Claim.
(b)    Settlement of Third Party Claims. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Indemnifying Party shall not enter into settlement of any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, except as provided in this Section 11.5(b). If a firm offer is made to settle a Third Party Claim without leading to liability or the creation of a financial or other obligation on the part of the Indemnified Party and provides, in customary form, for the unconditional release of each Indemnified Party from all liabilities and obligations in connection with such Third Party Claim and the Indemnifying Party desires to accept and agree to such offer, the Indemnifying Party shall give written notice to that effect to the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnified Party fails to consent to such firm offer within 10 days after its receipt of such notice, the Indemnified Party may continue to contest or defend such Third Party Claim and in such event, the maximum liability of the Indemnifying Party as to such Third Party Claim shall not exceed the amount of such settlement offer. If the Indemnified Party fails to consent to such firm offer and also fails to assume defense of such Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party may settle the Third Party Claim upon the terms set forth in such firm offer to settle such Third Party Claim. If the Indemnified Party has assumed the defense pursuant to Section 11.5(a), it shall not agree to any settlement without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
(c)    Direct Claims. Any claim by an Indemnified Party on account of a Loss that does not result from a Third Party Claim (a “Direct Claim”) shall be asserted by the Indemnified Party giving the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, (i) unless the applicable survival period has expired pursuant to Section 11.1 or (ii) except and only to the extent that the Indemnifying Party forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure. Such notice by the Indemnified Party shall describe the Direct Claim in reasonable detail and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall have 30 days after its receipt of such notice to respond in writing to such Direct Claim. The Indemnified Party shall allow the Indemnifying Party and its professional advisors to investigate the matter or circumstance alleged to give rise to the Direct Claim, and whether and to what extent any amount is payable in respect of the Direct Claim and the Indemnified Party shall assist the Indemnifying Party’s investigation by giving such information and assistance (including access to the Indemnified Party’s premises and personnel and the right to examine and copy any accounts, documents or records) as the Indemnifying Party or any of its professional advisors may reasonably request. If the Indemnifying Party does not so respond within such 30-day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have rejected such claim, in which case the Indemnified Party shall be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to the Indemnified Party on the terms and subject to the provisions of this Agreement.
11.6
PAYMENTS
Once a Loss is agreed to or accepted by the Indemnifying Party or finally adjudicated to be payable pursuant to this Article 11, the Indemnifying Party shall satisfy its obligations within 15 Business Days of such final, non-appealable adjudication by wire transfer of immediately available funds. The parties hereto agree that should an Indemnifying Party not make full payment of any such obligations within such 15-Business Day period, any amount payable shall accrue interest from and including the date of agreement of the Indemnifying Party or final, non-appealable adjudication to and including the date such payment has been made at a monthly compounded rate equal to three-month LIBOR (or similar successor rate) plus 2% per annum. Such interest shall be calculated daily on the basis of a 365-day year and the actual number of days elapsed.
11.7
TAX TREATMENT OF INDEMNIFICATION PAYMENTS; NET OF INSURANCE
All indemnification payments made under this Agreement shall be treated by the parties as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for Tax purposes, unless otherwise required by Legal Requirement. The amount of any Losses for which indemnification is provided under this Article 11 shall be net of any amounts actually recovered by the Indemnified Party under insurance coverage with respect to such Losses (minus the out-of-pocket expenses of pursuing payment of such amounts and any retrospective premium adjustments, as applicable).
11.8
EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES; EFFECT OF INVESTIGATION
(a)    Subject to Section 10.8 and Section 13.5, the parties acknowledge and agree that their sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all claims (other than claims arising from actual fraud or intentional wrongful misconduct on the part of a party hereto in connection with the Contemplated Transactions) for any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation set forth herein or otherwise relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, shall be pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in this Section 11.

Exhibit E        Escrow Agreement
Exhibit F        Assignment and Assumption of Lease


Exhibit A-1
Applicable Accounting Principles
1.
Seller has a 64% ownership stake (the “CMIWS Stake”) in CMIWS Co Ltd., a company organized under the laws of Japan (“CMIWS”). CMIWS is Seller’s distributor in Japan. The CMIWS financial statements are not consolidated with those of Seller. The CMIWS Stake is carried at the lower of cost or market on the balance sheet. The CMIWS Stake is a passive investment: Seller management takes no part in the day-to-day operations of CMIWS. The CMIWS Stake is an Excluded Asset.
2.
Finished goods inventory value does not include manufacturing labor costs or overhead allocations. Manufacturing labor costs are expensed as incurred. The value of finished goods inventory is the sum of the individual component costs based on the bill of materials.
3.
Prior to August 2018, Seller did not accrue earned but unused personal time off. At each year-end, carryover of accrued personal time off is capped at 40 hours per employee.
4.
Seller does not account for income taxes in accordance with GAAP. Seller has significant net operating loss carryforwards (“NOLs”) and management has determined that it is appropriate to maintain a 100% valuation allowance against the deferred tax asset arising from the NOLs. Management has not performed a detailed analysis of the individual current and deferred tax assets and liabilities to confirm whether netting all current and long-term assets and liabilities against the valuation allowance is appropriate.

5.
The Company accrues the costs of providing warranty services, but does not regularly analyze the accrual to determine whether or not it is adequate. For billable warranty extensions, revenue is recognized when billed, not deferred and recognized ratable over the warranty extension period.

We intend to drive growth organically and through the strategic deployment of capital. This acquisition is a prudent use of capital that is quickly accretive to our earnings, consistent with the parameters I’ve outlined previously, in terms of driving long-term value creation.”
