Buyer is in compliance in all material respects -------------------- with all applicable statutes, ordinances, orders, rules and regulations promulgated by any federal, state, municipal or governmental authority which apply to the conduct of its business, and Buyer has not received any notice of a violation or alleged violation of any such statute, ordinance, order, rule or regulation. Section 4 INDEMNIFICATION 4.1 Indemnification by the Sellers. Each Seller, jointly and severally, ------------------------------ agrees to indemnify and hold Buyer and their respective subsidiaries, officers, directors, partners or employees harmless from and against any damages, diminution in value, liabilities, losses, claims, taxes or expenditures of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be sustained or suffered by any of them arising out of or based upon any breach of any representation, warranty or covenant under this Agreement or in any agreement, certificate, schedule or exhibit delivered pursuant hereto, or by reason of any claim, action or proceeding asserted or instituted growing out of any matter or thing constituting a breach of such representation, warranty, covenant or agreement, in each case to the extent a claim for indemnity with respect thereto is asserted within the time period specified in Section 4.6. 4.2 Indemnification by SofTech. SofTech agrees to indemnify and hold -------------------------- Seller harmless from and against any damages, liabilities, losses, taxes or expenditures of any kind or nature whatsoever which may be sustained or suffered by any of them arising out of or based upon any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement under this Agreement or in any agreement, certificate, schedule or exhibit delivered pursuant hereto, or by reason of any claim, action or proceeding asserted or instituted growing out of any matter or thing constituting a breach of such representation, warranty, covenant or agreement in each case to the extent a claim for indemnity with respect thereto is asserted within the time period specified in Section 4.6. 4.3 Notice and Defense of Claims. In the event of a claim arising under ---------------------------- the indemnification provisions detailed above, the party making the claim shall do so in writing to the person or persons responsible for the indemnification. The party receiving such claim has 30 days to review the written notification and either agree the claim is valid or dispute such claim in writing to the other party, or contend that liability might be properly asserted but that a claim for <PAGE> -15- a certain dollar amount has not matured as of such date; provided, that a claim in respect of any action at law or suit in equity by or against a third person as to which indemnification will be sought shall be given promptly after the action or suit is commenced; provided further that failure to give such notice shall not relieve the indemnitor of its obligations hereunder except to the extent it shall have been prejudiced by such failure. In calculating any loss or expense there shall be deducted (i) any insurance recovery in respect thereof (and no right of subrogation shall accrue hereunder to any insurer) and (ii) the amount of any tax benefit to the indemnified party (or any of its affiliates) with respect to such loss or expense (after giving effect to the tax effect of receipt of the indemnification payments). In the case of loss or expense asserted against, resulting to, imposed upon, or suffered by any indemnified party by reason of any claim by any third party (a "Third Party Claim"), the indemnified party shall provide a claim as previously provided. Upon receipt of a claim in respect of a Third Party Claim, the indemnitor may, in its sole discretion, undertake the defense thereof by counsel of its own choosing, which counsel shall be reasonably satisfactory to the indemnified party (it being understood, in the event that the indemnitor undertakes such defense, the defense, compromise, or settlement of such claim shall be for the account of, and at the risk of, the indemnitor); provided, however, that the indemnified party shall have the right at its own expense to participate in the defense thereof and to employ counsel at its own expense to assist in such defense. If the indemnified party has not, within fifteen (15) days after a claim with respect to any Third Party Claim is made, received written notice from the indemnitor stating that the indemnitor elects to assume the defense of such Third Party Claim, the indemnified party shall have the right, with counsel reasonably acceptable to the indemnitor, to undertake and control the defense, compromise or settlement of such Third Party Claim. The indemnitor shall not, without the prior written consent of each indemnified party against whom a Third Party Claim is asserted, settle or compromise any claim or consent to the entry of any judgment relating to or cease to defend any such Third Party Claim, unless such settlement, compromise, or judgment includes as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or by the plaintiff to each indemnified party against whom a Third Party Claim is asserted, a release from all liabilities in respect of such Third Party Claim and does not result in the imposition on the indemnified party of any remedy other than monetary damages for which the indemnified party is fully indemnified. The indemnitor shall, at its expense, provide each indemnified party against whom a Third Party Claim is asserted with reasonable access to all records and documents of the indemnitor relating to any Third Party Claim. The indemnified party shall, at the expense of the indemnitor, provide the indemnitor with reasonable access to all records and documents of the indemnified party relating to any Third Party Claim. In the event of agreement with the validity of such claim, payment shall be made within 45 days of receipt of notification. If the dispute cannot be settled by negotiation between the parties within 90 days of receipt of notification, upon election of either party, the dispute shall be referred to the American Arbitration Association to be settled in Boston, MA on an expedited basis in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of said organization. Fees and expenses of such arbitration shall be shared equally. 4.4 Exclusive Remedy. The parties agree that the remedies provided in ---------------- Section 4 shall be the exclusive remedies with respect to any alleged breach of any representation or warranty or covenant made in this Agreement. The only legal action which may be asserted by any party with respect to any matter shall be a contract action to enforce, or to recover damages <PAGE> -16- for the breach of, this Section 4. Without limiting the generality of the preceding sentence, no legal action sounding in tort or strict liability may be maintained by any party. 4.5 Tax Effect of Indemnification Payments. In determining the amount of -------------------------------------- claims against an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 4, there shall be added (in the case of a tax detriment) or deducted (in the case of a tax benefit) to or from the amounts to be paid by the indemnifying party an amount equal to the net present value of any tax benefit or tax detriment (federal, state, local or foreign) realized or expected by the independent public accountants of Seller to be realized by the indemnified party by reason of such claim and the receipt of any indemnity payment pursuant to this Section 4. For purposes of this Section 4.5, "present value" shall be calculated using the applicable annual Federal midterm rate, as that term is defined in the Code, as in effect for the month in which the payment is to be made; "tax benefit" and "tax detriment" shall be calculated using the actual effective tax rate with respect to the taxable period or periods for which the tax benefit or the tax detriment, as the case may be, is realized or incurred, or expected by the independent public accountants of Seller to be realized or incurred, as the case may be. 4.6 Limitation on Indemnification by Sellers. The right of the Buyer to ---------------------------------------- indemnification from the Seller shall be subject to the following provisions: (a) The Seller shall be provided with a $500,000 deductible for all claims for indemnification under Section 4.1 by the Buyer. No payments of such claims shall be made by the Seller to the Buyer until such time as such claims exceed $500,000 and only to the extent that such claims exceed that amount; and (b) No indemnification shall be payable to the Buyer from the Seller pursuant to Section 4.1 for claims in excess of $1.0 million in the aggregate exclusive of claims relating to the Excluded Liabilities as to which there shall be no such limitation and which shall not be counted toward such limitation. 4.7 Survival. The representations and warranties of each party contained -------- in this Agreement shall survive the Closing Date until December 31, 1998. Any claim for indemnity shall be asserted on or before such date except that any claim relating to Taxes may be asserted until the 60th day after the running of the applicable statute of limitations with respect to the taxable period to which the particular claim relates. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, no time or other limitation applies to losses relating to Excluded Liabilities. Section 5 POST CLOSING OBLIGATIONS 5.1 Required Audits of ADRA. Seller agrees to cooperate reasonably ----------------------- following the transaction to complete the required audits of prior fiscal years as required for Buyer's Form 8K <PAGE> -17- filing. Such audited financial statements must be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or before the 75th day following the Closing date of the transaction. 5.2 Nonsolicitation. Each of the Buyer and Seller agree that, for a --------------- period of one year from the Closing Date, without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, they shall not, directly or indirectly, solicit for employment hire as an employee, consultant or contractor, or otherwise engage any employee who was employed by the other party as of the transaction date or for a period of six months immediately preceding transaction date. For the purpose of this section 5.2 only, all employees of the Business that are offered employment by the Buyer shall be deemed employees of Buyer at the transaction date regardless of their ultimate acceptance of such offer of employment with Buyer, provided, however, that Seller may offer employment to a former employee of the Business 15 days after their rejection of an offer of employment with Buyer. 5.3 Account Reconciliation. Seller agrees to close the April 30, 1998 ---------------------- ADRA books and records in the normal course and to provide Buyer with such final records by May 26, 1998. 5.4 Assignment of Registered Trademarks. Seller agrees to enter into an ----------------------------------- assignment agreement with Buyer subsequent to the Closing to assign all of the registered trademarks listed of the Business as listed on Schedule 2.22 to Buyer.
