Settlement of Litigation
Hanover shall not, nor shall it permit any of its Subsidiaries to, settle any litigation, investigation, arbitration, proceeding or other claim if Hanover or any of its subsidiaries would be required to pay in excess of $10,000 individually or in the aggregate or if such settlement would obligate Hanover to take any material action or restrict Hanover in any material respect from taking any action at or after the Effective Time.
Effect of Settlement
Neither the Grantee nor any of the Grantee’s successors, heirs, assigns or personal representatives shall have any further rights or interests in any Restricted Stock Units that have been paid and settled. Although a settlement date or range of dates for settlement are specified above in order to comply with Code Section 409A, the Company retains discretion to determine the settlement date, and no Grantee or beneficiary of a Grantee shall have any claim for damages or loss by virtue of the fact that the market price of Common Stock was higher on a given date upon which settlement could have been made as compared to the market price on or after the actual settlement date (any claim relating to settlement will be limited to a claim for delivery of Shares and related dividend equivalents).
Settlement of Third Party Claims
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Indemnifying Party shall not enter into settlement of any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, except as provided in this Section 8.05(b). If a firm offer is made to settle a Third Party Claim without leading to liability or the creation of a financial or other obligation on the part of the Indemnified Party and provides, in customary form, for the unconditional release of each Indemnified Party from all liabilities and obligations in connection with such Third Party Claim and the Indemnifying Party desires to accept and agree to such offer, the Indemnifying Party shall give written notice to that effect to the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnified Party fails to consent to such firm offer within ten days after its receipt of such notice, the Indemnified Party may continue to contest or defend such Third Party Claim and in such event, the maximum liability of the Indemnifying Party as to such Third Party Claim shall not exceed the amount of such settlement offer. If the Indemnified Party fails to consent to such firm offer and also fails to assume defense of such Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party may settle the Third Party Claim upon the terms set forth in such firm offer to settle such Third Party Claim. If the Indemnified Party has assumed the defense pursuant to Section 8.05(a), it shall not agree to any settlement without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).
