THE ALLOCATIONS OF LIABILITY REPRESENT THE AGREED AND BARGAINED-FOR UNDERSTANDING OF THE PARTIES AND MTP’S COMPENSATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT REFLECTS SUCH ALLOCATIONS.

(a) Nonsolicitation. During the Term and for one year thereafter, neither party shall, directly or indirectly, solicit or hire any employees of the other party. General advertising or job postings not specifically directed at the other party will not be deemed to be a breach of this provision.
(b) Entire Agreement. This Agreement (including the Schedule(s)) contains the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter herein and supersedes all prior, collateral or contemporaneous communications, representations, understandings and agreements, either oral or written, between the parties with respect to said subject matter. This Agreement may be amended or supplemented only by a writing that refers specifically to this Agreement and that is signed by duly authorized representatives of both parties. No terms, provisions or conditions of any request for proposal, purchase order, acknowledgement or other business form that either party may use in connection with this Agreement will have any effect on the rights, duties or obligations of the parties hereunder, or otherwise modify, this Agreement, regardless of any failure of the other party to object to such terms, provisions or conditions.
(c) Payments. All payments to MTP shall be in United States dollars.
(d) Force Majeure. Neither party will incur any liability to the other party on account of any loss or damage resulting from any delay or failure to perform all or any part of this Agreement if such delay or failure is caused, in whole or in part, by events, occurrences, or causes beyond the control and without negligence of the parties, including but not limited to acts of God, strikes, lockouts, riots, acts of war, earthquakes, fire and explosions, but the inability to meet financial obligations is expressly excluded.
(e) Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York and the United States of America, without regard to conflict of laws principles.
(f) Severability. If any term, condition, or provision in this Agreement is found to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, the parties shall endeavor in good faith to agree to such amendments that will preserve, as far as possible, the intentions expressed in this Agreement. If the parties fail to agree on such an amendment, such invalid term, condition or provision will be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions, which will continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
(g) Waiver. Any failure of any of the parties to comply with any obligation, covenant, agreement or condition herein may be waived by the party entitled to the benefit thereof only by a written instrument signed by the party granting such waiver, but such waiver or failure to insist upon strict compliance with such obligation, representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or condition shall not operate as a waiver of, or estoppel with respect to, any subsequent or other failure.

Any notice required or permitted under the terms of this Agreement or required by law must be in writing and must be (i) delivered in person, (ii) sent by registered mail return receipt requested, (iii) sent by overnight air courier, or (iv) by confirmed facsimile or e-mail, in each case forwarded to the appropriate address set forth herein.
(i) Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed electronically and in one or more 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 instrument.
(j) Injunctive Relief. The parties agree that certain breaches of this Agreement may result in irreparable harm, the extent of which would be difficult and/or impracticable to assess, and where money damages would not be an adequate remedy for that breach. Accordingly, each party shall be entitled to seek any and all remedies available at law or in equity, including, without limitation, injunctive relief or specific performance.
(k) Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any rights under this Agreement may be assigned, delegated, sublicensed, pledged or otherwise transferred by either party, in whole or in part, whether de facto, voluntarily, by operation of law, or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the non-assigning party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned, and any purported assignment without such consent shall be void ab initio. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign this Agreement without consent in connection with a merger or sale of all or substantially all of its assets or capital stock, or an Affiliate. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
(l) No Third Party Beneficiaries. The terms, representations, warranties and agreements of the parties set forth in this Agreement are not intended for, nor shall they be for the benefit of or enforceable by, any person or entity that is not a party to this Agreement.
