The reasonable fees and disbursements of such counsel shall be among the expenses for which Purchaser is indemnified pursuant to Section 7 hereof.

(ii) Arbitration. In the event that the controversies have not been resolved to both party's satisfaction within a period not to exceed six months from the date of request being submitted the controversies shall be referred to and determined by an appraiser mutually acceptable to the parties. In the event they cannot agree on such selection, Purchaser and Sellers shall each nominate an appraiser as its (or their) representative and the two appraisers so nominated shall jointly select a third appraiser. In such event, the resolution of the dispute shall be decided by a majority of the three appraisers. The resolution of the dispute by the appraisers Page 18 of 36 <PAGE> shall be final and binding upon all parties as to financial matters, but shall not extend to any nonfinancial interpretation of this Agreement unless Purchaser and Sellers shall mutually agree in writing to the contrary. (ii) If the dispute does not involve financial matters, or if the parties are unable to agree whether the dispute involves financial matters, then the dispute shall be submitted to and settled by arbitration as provided in Section 19 hereof. 8.04. Effect of Purchaser's Knowledge. Any knowledge of any matter by Purchaser or any disclosure to Purchaser by Sellers of any matter shall not reduce or affect any indemnification claim of Purchaser hereunder unless and except for any disclosures by Sellers on any schedule hereto delivered at the time of execution hereof or beforehand in due diligence disclosures and other formal written documents. 9.
