Section 3. Certain Covenants of the Company. The Company covenants with you as follows:
(a) The Company will promptly notify CS, representing the Underwriters, (i) of the effectiveness of any post-effective amendment to the Registration Statement, (ii) of the mailing or the delivery to the Commission for filing of the Prospectus or any amendment to the Registration Statement or amendment or supplement to the Prospectus or any document to be filed pursuant to the 1934 Act during any period when the Prospectus is required to be delivered under the 1933 Act, (iii) of the receipt of any comments or inquiries from the Commission relating to the Registration Statement or Prospectus, (iv) of any request by the Commission for any amendment to the Registration Statement or any amendment or supplement to the Prospectus
or for additional information, (v) of the issuance by the Commission of any stop order suspending the effectiveness of the Registration Statement or the initiation of any proceeding for that purpose, and (vi) of the issuance by any state securities commission or other regulatory authority of any order suspending the qualification or the exemption from qualification of the Securities under state securities or Blue Sky laws or the initiation of any proceedings for that purpose. The Company will use its best effort to prevent the issuance by the Commission of any stop order and, if any such stop order is issued, to obtain the lifting thereof at the earliest possible moment. The Company will provide the Underwriters with copies of the form of Prospectus, in such number as the Underwriters may reasonably request, and file or transmit for filing with the Commission such Prospectus in accordance with Rule 424(b) of the 1933 Act Regulations by the close of business in New York on the second business day immediately succeeding the date hereof. The Company will pay the required Commission filing fees relating to the Securities within the time required by Rule 456(b)(1) without regard to the proviso therein and otherwise in accordance with Rules 456(b) and 457(r).
(b) At any time when a Prospectus is (or but for the exemption in Rule 172 would be) required to be delivered under the 1933 Act, the 1933 Act Regulations, the 1934 Act or the 1934 Act Regulations in connection with sales of the Securities, the Company will give CS, representing the Underwriters, notice of its intention to file or prepare any amendment to the Registration Statement or any amendment, supplement or revision to either the prospectus included in the Registration Statement at the time it became effective, to the Prospectus, whether or not such revised prospectus is required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) of the 1933 Act Regulations), will furnish the Underwriters with copies of any such amendment or supplement a reasonable amount of time prior to such proposed filing or use, as the case may be, and will not file any such amendment or supplement or use any such prospectus to which the Underwriters or counsel for the Underwriters shall reasonably object, unless in the judgment of the Company and its counsel, and after notification to you, such amendment or supplement is required by law.
(c) The Company has furnished or will deliver to you, without charge, a signed copy of the Registration Statement as originally filed and of each amendment thereto (including exhibits filed therewith and documents incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference therein) and as many conformed copies of the Registration Statement as originally filed and of each amendment thereto (including documents incorporated or deemed to be incorporated by reference therein but without exhibits filed therewith), as you may reasonably request.
(d) The Company will furnish to you, from time to time during the period when the Prospectus is required to be delivered under the 1933 Act or the 1934 Act, such number of copies of the Prospectus (as amended or supplemented) as you may reasonably request.
(e) The Company will comply with the 1933 Act and the 1933 Act Regulations and the 1934 Act and the 1934 Act Regulations so as to permit the completion of the distribution of the Securities as contemplated in this Agreement and in the Prospectus. If, at any time when a Prospectus is required to be delivered under the 1933 Act in connection with sales of the Securities, any event shall occur or condition exist as a result of which it is necessary, in the opinion of your counsel or counsel for the Company, to amend or supplement the Prospectus in order that the Prospectus will not include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances existing at the time it is delivered to a purchaser, not misleading or if, in the opinion of your counsel or counsel for the Company, it is necessary to amend or supplement the Prospectus to comply with applicable law, the Company, at its own expense, will promptly prepare such amendment or supplement as may be necessary so that the statements in the Prospectus as so amended or supplemented will not, in the light of the circumstances
existing at the time it is delivered to a purchaser, be misleading or so that such Prospectus as so amended or supplemented will comply with applicable law, as the case may be, and furnish you such number of copies as you may reasonably request. The Company will not file any amendment or supplement without first providing the Underwriters with such amendment or supplement and having obtained the Underwriters consent to the filing, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld unless in the judgment of the Company and its counsel, and after notification to you, such amendment or supplement is required by law. Neither the Underwriters consent to, nor the delivery of such amendment or supplement, shall constitute a waiver of any of the conditions in Section 6 hereof.
(f) The Company will endeavor, in cooperation with you, to qualify the Securities for offering and sale under the applicable securities laws of such states and other jurisdictions as you may designate and to maintain such qualifications in effect for a period of not less than a year from the date of the Prospectus; provided, however, that the Company shall not be obligated to file any general consent to service of process or to qualify as a foreign corporation or as a dealer in securities in any jurisdiction in which it is not so qualified or to subject itself to taxation in respect of doing business in any jurisdiction in which it is not otherwise so subject. The Company will file such statements and reports as may be required by the laws of each jurisdiction in which the Securities have been qualified as above provided. The Company will also supply you with such information as is necessary for the determination of the legality of the Securities for investment under the laws of such jurisdictions as you may request.
(g) As soon as practicable, but not later than 16 months, after the date of this Agreement, the Company will make generally available to its securityholders an earnings statement covering a period of at least 12 months beginning after the effective date of the Registration Statement and satisfying the provisions of Section 11(a) of the Act and Rule 158.
(h) The Company will use its best efforts in cooperation with you to permit the Securities offered and sold in transactions by you to be eligible for clearance and settlement through The Depository Trust Company.
