The Shareholder recognizes and acknowledges that a breach by the Shareholder of any covenants or agreements contained in this Agreement will cause Parent and Purchaser to sustain damages for which they would not have an adequate remedy at law for money damages, and therefore the Shareholder agrees that in the event of any such breach, or threatened breach, Parent and Purchaser shall be entitled to seek the remedy of specific performance of such covenants and agreements and injunctive and other equitable relief in addition to any other remedy to which they may be entitled, at law or in equity, and that any requirement for the posting of a bond or similar requirement in any such proceeding is hereby irrevocably waived.
