WITNESSETH:
 
WHEREAS, Seller is a leading vendor of web-based space management software for tracking people, space and physical assets (the “ Business ”); and
 
WHEREAS, Seller desires to sell to Purchaser, and Purchaser desires to purchase from Seller, substantially all the assets and certain specified liabilities of the Business, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.
 
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements hereinafter set forth, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows:
 
SECTION 1.
 
SALE AND PURCHASE OF ASSETS AND CLOSING
 
1.1. Sale and Purchase . On the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, at Closing (as hereinafter defined in Section 1.8), Seller hereby agrees to sell, convey, assign, deliver and transfer to Purchaser, and Purchaser agrees to purchase from Seller, all of Seller’s right, title and interest in and to the following assets and properties, tangible or intangible, wherever located, other than the Excluded Assets (as hereinafter defined in Section 1.2) (collectively, the “ Purchased Assets ”), free and clear of any mortgage, pledge, lien, charge, security interest, claim or other encumbrance (“ Encumbrance ”):
 
(a)   All machinery and equipment, tools, office equipment, computer equipment, hardware, software and related program documentation, supplies, telephones and other tangible personal property owned by Seller and used in the conduct of the Business (“ Tangible Personal Property ”);
 
(b)   All inventory, finished goods, raw materials, work in progress, packaging, supplies, parts, materials, testing units, and other inventories, wherever located, owned, solely employed or held for use by Seller in the conduct of the Business;
 
(c)   All Purchased Intellectual Property (as hereinafter defined in Subsection 2.9(f)(i)), provided however, that Marcia Hart may use, solely in connection with performing her services under the Independent Contractor Agreement (as defined in Section 4.1(e)) and until the termination of  the Independent Contractor Agreement, the following email addresses: marcia@roomtag.com and Marcia.hart@roomtag.com which shall be tied to and forwarded to marciahart@gmail.com ;

(d)   Originals, or where not available, copies, of all existing books and records (including computer records) of Seller, including books of account, ledgers, general business, financial and accounting records, price lists, purchase orders, sales records, research and development files, strategic plans, personnel records of employees of Seller hired by Purchaser, customer lists, supplier lists, customer complaints, mailing lists, promotional and advertising materials, and research and intellectual property files relating to the Purchased Intellectual Property and Intellectual Property Licenses (as hereinafter defined in Subsection 2.9(f)(ii));
 
(e)   All contracts, leases, deeds, mortgages, licenses, instruments, commitments, undertakings and other agreements, commitments and legally binding arrangements, whether written or oral, including Intellectual Property Licenses, to which Seller is a party or which relate to the Business, including those set forth on Schedule 1.1(e) (collectively, the “ Assigned Contracts ”);
 
(f)   All prepaid expenses, credits, advances, security, refunds, deposits, rights of recovery, rights of set-off,  and charges relating to the Business;
 
(g)   All of Seller’s rights under warranties, indemnities and all similar rights against third parties to the extent related to any Purchased Assets;
 
(j)           All insurance benefits, including all claims, rights and proceeds, arising from or relating to the Business, the Purchased Assets or the Assumed Liabilities (as hereinafter defined in Section 1.6);

Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, this Agreement and any instrument executed pursuant hereto shall not constitute an assignment of any claim, contract, license, lease, purchase order, Assigned Contract, or other commitment included in the Purchased Assets (collectively, the “ Commitments ”) if an attempted assignment or transfer of the same without the consent of the other party thereto or the applicable governmental agency would be ineffective or would constitute a breach or violation thereof so that Purchaser would not in fact receive all of the rights and benefits of  Seller or such other assigning party thereunder.  If by the Closing Date any such consent has not been obtained, Seller shall after the Closing use its reasonable efforts to provide for the Purchaser the benefits under any such Commitment without such arrangement causing a breach or violation of such Commitment; provided, however, that Seller or such other assigning party shall not be required to incur financial expense or obligation in connection with its obligations under this section.  If Seller or such other assigning party is unable to obtain such consent to any transfer or assignment of an Assigned Contract, Seller shall so indicate as to each such Assigned Contract on Schedule 1.1(e) hereto, such inability shall not constitute or be deemed to be a breach of any provision of this Agreement, and Seller and Purchaser shall work together and reasonably cooperate following Closing to obtain such consents.

(b)   All oral and written contracts, leases, deeds, mortgages, licenses, agreements, instruments, commitments, undertakings, purchase orders or other legally binding arrangements that are not Assigned Contracts; and
 
(c)   Organizational documents, minute books, stock records and tax records of Seller.

(a)   Nine Hundred Thirty Three Thousand Dollars ($933,000) in cash (the “ Closing Day Cash Payment ”). The Closing Day Cash Payment shall be paid at Closing by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account specified by Seller in writing; and

If Seller notifies Purchaser in writing that Seller objects to one or more of the allocations reflected in the Allocation Schedule, Purchaser and Seller shall negotiate in good faith to resolve such dispute; provided, however, that if Purchaser and Seller are unable to resolve any dispute with respect to the Allocation Schedule within twenty (20) days after the end of ten (10) day review and comment period, such dispute shall be referred to an impartial firm of  independent certified public accountants with offices in Austin, Texas that has no prior relationship with either Seller or Purchaser (the “ Independent Accountants ”), as mutually agreed to by Purchaser and Seller, for resolution as promptly as practicable. The Allocation Schedule as so agreed to or determined by the Independent Accountants shall be conclusive and binding upon the parties, and the parties agree that that all tax returns (including IRS Form 8594) and all financial statements of the parties shall be prepared in a manner consistent with (and the parties shall not otherwise file a tax return or take any tax position inconsistent with) the such Allocation Schedule.

(a)   Third Party Claims . If any Indemnitee receives notice of the assertion or commencement of any Action made or brought by any person who is not a party to this Agreement or an affiliate of a party to this Agreement or a representative of the foregoing (a “ Third Party Claim ”) against such Indemnitee with respect to which the Indemnifying Party is obligated to provide indemnification under this Agreement, the Indemnitee shall give the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than thirty (30) calendar days after receipt of such notice of such Third Party Claim. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that the Indemnifying Party forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure. Such notice by the Indemnitee shall describe the Third Party Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnitee. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to participate in, or by giving written notice to the Indemnitee, to assume the defense of any Third Party Claim at the Indemnifying Party’s expense and by the Indemnifying Party’s own counsel, and the Indemnitee shall cooperate in good faith in such defense. In the event that the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any Third Party Claim, subject to Section 5.4(b), it shall have the right to take such action as it deems necessary to avoid, dispute, defend, appeal or make counterclaims pertaining to any such Third Party Claim in the name and on behalf of the Indemnitee. The Indemnitee shall have the right to participate in the defense of any Third Party Claim with counsel selected by it subject to the Indemnifying Party’s right to control the defense thereof. The fees and disbursements of such counsel shall be at the expense of the Indemnitee, provided, that if in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the Indemnitee, (i) there are legal defenses available to an Indemnitee that are different from or additional to those available to the Indemnifying Party; (ii) there exists a conflict of interest between the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnitee that cannot be waived, (iii) the claim relates to or arises in connection with any criminal or quasi-criminal proceeding, action, indictment, allegation or investigation; or (iv) the Indemnitee reasonably believes an adverse determination with respect to the action, lawsuit, investigation, proceeding or other claim giving rise to such claim for indemnification would be materially detrimental to or materially injure the Indemnitee’s reputation or future business prospects; the Indemnifying Party shall be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel to the Indemnitee in each jurisdiction for which the Indemnitee determines counsel is required. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to compromise or defend such Third Party Claim, fails to promptly notify the Indemnitee in writing of its election to defend as provided in this Agreement, or fails to diligently prosecute the defense of such Third Party Claim, the Indemnitee may, subject to 5.4(b) , pay, compromise, defend such Third Party Claim and seek indemnification for any and all Losses based upon, arising from or relating to such Third Party Claim. Seller and Purchaser shall cooperate with each other in all reasonable respects in connection with the defense of any Third Party Claim, including (subject to reasonable privilege and confidentiality concerns) making available records relating to such Third Party Claim and furnishing, without expense (other than reimbursement of actual out-of-pocket expenses) to the defending party, management employees of the non-defending party as may be reasonably necessary for the preparation of the defense of such Third Party Claim.
 
(b)   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 Indemnitee, except as provided in this Section 5.4(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 Indemnitee and provides, in customary form, for the unconditional release of each Indemnitee 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 Indemnitee. If the Indemnitee fails to consent to such firm offer within ten (10) days after its receipt of such notice, the Indemnitee 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 Indemnitee 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 Indemnitee has assumed the defense pursuant to Section 5.4(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).
 
 
20

 
 
(c)   Direct Claims . Any Action by an Indemnitee on account of a Loss which does not result from a Third Party Claim (a “ Direct Claim ”) shall be asserted by the Indemnitee giving the Indemnifying Party reasonably prompt written notice thereof, but in any event not later than thirty (30) days after the Indemnitee becomes aware of such Direct Claim. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that the Indemnifying Party forfeits rights or defenses by reason of such failure. Such notice by the Indemnitee shall describe the Direct Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnitee. The Indemnifying Party shall have thirty (30) days after its receipt of such notice to respond in writing to such Direct Claim. The Indemnitee shall allow the Indemnifying Party and its professional advisors to investigate the matter or circumstance alleged to give rise to the Direct Claim, and whether and to what extent any amount is payable in respect of the Direct Claim and the Indemnitee shall assist the Indemnifying Party’s investigation by giving such information and assistance (including access to Seller’s premises and personnel and the right to examine and copy any accounts, documents or records) as the Indemnifying Party or any of its professional advisors may reasonably request. If the Indemnifying Party does not so respond within such thirty (30) day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have rejected such claim, in which case the Indemnitee shall be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to the Indemnitee on the terms and subject to the provisions of this Agreement.
 
5.5.   Payments; Offset and Holdback from Note .   Once a Loss is agreed to by the Indemnifying Party or adjudicated to be payable pursuant to this Section 5, the Indemnifying Party shall satisfy its obligations within fifteen (15) business days of such agreement or final, non-appealable adjudication, as the case may be, by wire transfer of immediately available funds. Notwithstanding the above, if the Indemnifying Party is Seller, any obligation of or claim against Seller in indemnification hereunder shall be offset and satisfied, up to a maximum offset amount of $500,000 (the “ Offset Maximum Amount ”), by offsetting the amounts owed by Purchaser to Seller under the Note (the “ Offset Obligation ”). Further, to the extent that a Third Party Claim or Direct Claim, pursuant to which Seller is the Indemnifying Party under this Section 5, is not finally resolved prior to the due date of the Note, Purchaser may holdback payment of such amounts (the “ Holdback Amount ”) otherwise due under the Note as it reasonably determines will be required to resolve the pending matter but in no event exceeding the Offset Maximum Amount, and pay the remaining portion of principal, if any, as and when due under the Note. The failure of Purchaser to pay the Holdback Amount on the due date under the Note will not constitute an event of default under the Note.
 
5.6.   Tax Treatment of Indemnification Payments All indemnification payments made under this Agreement shall be treated by the parties as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for tax purposes, unless otherwise required by law.
 
5.7.   Indemnification Cap .
 
(a)           Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the maximum amount of the aggregate liability of the Seller for any indemnification obligations under this Section 5 shall be limited to Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000) (the “ Seller Indemnity Cap ”); provided, however, the Seller Indemnity Cap shall not apply to any Loss which results from, arises out of or relates to (a) a breach of or inaccuracy in  the representations and warranties in Sections 2.1, 2.2, 2.7, 2.9, 2.1, 2.17, and 2.19, (b) fraud by Seller, (c) a breach of any covenant or agreement by Seller under Section 6.2 or Section 6.3, or (d) any Excluded Liabilities.

5.8.   Effect of Investigation .   The representations, warranties and covenants of the Indemnifying Party, and the Indemnitee’s right to indemnification with respect thereto, shall not be affected or deemed waived by reason of any investigation made by or on behalf of the Indemnitee (including by any of its representatives) or by reason of the fact that the Indemnitee or any of its representatives knew or should have known that any such representation or warranty is, was or might be inaccurate.
 
5.9.   Exclusive Remedies .   Subject to Section 6.3, the parties acknowledge and agree that their sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all claims (other than claims arising from fraud, criminal activity or willful misconduct on the part of a party hereto in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) for any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation set forth herein or otherwise relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, shall be pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in this Section 5.

Additionally, Roomtag solutions are SaaS-based, which is in direct alignment with our technology strategy to deliver cloud-based SaaS solutions, and it meets the rapidly growing demand for Cloud-based solutions,” said Asure Software CEO, Pat Goepel. “As the workplace and the workforce become increasingly mobile and global, Asure will be at the forefront of providing solutions to help organizations worldwide to effectively manage space, people and assets.”

"The combination of Roomtag and Asure Software delivers what our customers are demanding -- the ability to coordinate space utilization, scheduling, and operations workflows in a simple, browser-based platform that works seamlessly around the world," said Marcia Hart, Roomtag CEO.  “Asure Software and Roomtag share a common vision and approach to client services. Now, Asure can offer Roomtag to its customers, and Roomtag customers will benefit from Asure’s wide range of offerings, an international platform that offers true global support for global work environments, and product integration with calendar and scheduling capabilities.”

Roomtag customers will continue their current service and their customer contracts will remain the same. This is Asure’s second acquisition this year. Last month, Asure acquired FotoPunch and incorporated its technology into the AsureForce workforce management product suite.
