11.4 Prohibited Transfers.
Any purported Transfer of a Membership Interest that is not a Permitted Transfer shall be null and void and of no effect whatsoever; provided that, if the Company is required to recognize a Transfer that is not a Permitted Transfer, the Membership Interest Transferred shall be strictly limited to the transferors rights to allocations and distributions as provided by this Agreement with respect to the Transferred Membership Interest, which allocations and distributions may be applied (without limiting any other legal or equitable rights of the Company) to satisfy any debts, obligations, or liabilities for damages that the transferor or transferee of such Membership Interest may have to the Company. In the case of a Transfer or attempted Transfer of a Membership Interest that is not a Permitted Transfer, the parties engaging or attempting to engage in such Transfer shall be liable to indemnify and hold harmless the Company and the other Members from all cost, liability, and damage that any of such indemnified Persons may incur (including, without limitation, incremental tax liability and lawyers fees and expenses) as a result of such Transfer or attempted Transfer and efforts to enforce the indemnity granted hereby. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, the Managing Member shall prohibit (i) any Transfer that would result in the Company being treated as a PTP or (ii) any Transfer (other than a Transfer by RBDB) that would result in a violation of the requirements of Section 11.3(b).
