NOTICE AND OPPORTUNITY TO DEFEND
Promptly after the receipt by Buyer or the Company and/or the Seller of notice of any action, proceeding, claim or potential claim (any of which is hereinafter individually referred to as a “ Circumstance ”) which could give rise to a right to indemnification under this Agreement, such party (the “ Indemnified Party ”) shall give prompt written notice to the party or parties who may become obligated to provide indemnification hereunder (the “ Indemnifying Party ”). Such notice shall specify in reasonable detail the basis and amount, if ascertainable, of any claim that would be based upon the Circumstance. The failure to give such notice promptly shall relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations under this Agreement, unless the Indemnified Party establishes that the Indemnifying Party either had knowledge of the Circumstance or was not prejudiced by the failure to give notice of the Circumstance. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right, at its option, to compromise or defend the claim, at its own expense and by its own counsel, and otherwise control any such matter involving the asserted liability of the Indemnified Party, provided that any such compromise or control shall be subject to obtaining the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party which shall not be unreasonably withheld. An Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any costs of settlement
incurred without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party. If any Indemnifying Party undertakes to compromise or defend any asserted liability, it shall promptly notify the Indemnified Party of its intention to do so, and the Indemnified Party agrees to cooperate fully with the Indemnifying Party and its counsel in the compromise of or defense against any such asserted liability. All costs and expenses incurred in connection with such cooperation shall be borne by the Indemnifying Party, provided such costs and expenses have been previously approved by the Indemnifying Party. In any event, the Indemnified Party shall have the right at its own expense to participate in the defense of an asserted liability.
12.1 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, successors and assigns.
