8.Each Party acknowledges and understands that there is a risk that subsequent to the execution of this Termination, each Party may discover, incur or suffer Released Claims that were unknown or unanticipated at the time of the execution of this Termination, and which, if known on the date of the execution of this Termination, might have materially affected such Party’s decision to enter into and execute this Termination.

9.Except as otherwise provided in Section 4, the Parties hereby acknowledge and agree that each Party continues to be bound by the Confidentiality Agreement, dated as of January 25, 2021 (the “Confidentiality Agreement”), by and among DPCM, JC and the other parties thereto, and that all information obtained pursuant to the BCA shall be kept confidential in accordance with the Confidentiality Agreement.

 

10.If any term or other provision of this Termination is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of law, or public policy, all other conditions and provisions of this Termination shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated by this Termination are not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Termination so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated by this Termination be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.

 

11.This Termination shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the Laws of the State of Delaware applicable to contracts executed in and to be performed in such State. Any Action arising out of or relating to this Termination shall, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, be heard and determined exclusively in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware; provided that if jurisdiction is not available in such court, then any such Action may be brought in any federal court located in the State of Delaware or any other Delaware state court. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, the Parties hereby (a) irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts for themselves and with respect to their respective properties for the purpose of any Action arising out of or relating to this Termination brought by any Party and (b) agree not to commence any such Action except in the courts described above in Delaware, other than any Action in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce any judgment, decree or award rendered by any such court in Delaware as described herein. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, each of the Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives, and agrees not to assert, by way of motion or as a defense, counterclaim or otherwise, in any Action arising out of or relating to this Termination, (i) any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of the courts in Delaware as described herein for any reason, (ii) that it or its property is exempt or immune from jurisdiction of any such court or from any legal process commenced in such courts (whether through service of notice, attachment prior to judgment, attachment in aid of execution of judgment, execution of judgment or otherwise) and (iii) that (A) the Action in any such court is brought in an inconvenient forum, (B) the venue of such Action is improper or (C) this Termination, or the subject matter hereof, may not be enforced in or by such courts. Each of the Parties hereby waives to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, any right it may have to a trial by jury with respect to any Action directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to this Termination. Each of the Parties (a) certifies that no Representative, agent or attorney of any other party has represented, expressly or otherwise, that such other party would not, in the event of any Action, seek to enforce that foregoing waiver and (b) acknowledges that it and the other Parties have been induced to enter into this Termination, as applicable, by, among other things, the mutual waivers and certifications in this Section 11.

 

12.This Termination may be executed and delivered (including by facsimile or portable document format (pdf) transmission) in one or more counterparts, and by the different Parties in separate counterparts, each of which when executed shall be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

 

13.This Termination may only be amended in writing by the Parties.

 

14.Each Party hereby agrees to pay the expenses (including the fees and expenses of counsel, accountants, investment bankers, experts and consultants) incurred by such Party in connection with the BCA and the Transactions in accordance with Section 9.03 of the BCA.
