Except as provided in Section 7.05, the rights and remedies herein provided shall be cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies provided under Applicable Law.
9.03 Expenses. All costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the other Acquisition Documents and in closing and carrying out the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby shall be paid by the Party incurring such cost or expense (whether or not the Closing occurs); provided, that, that the Parties shall each bear one-half (50%) of the required filing fee(s) of the notifications of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement made by any Party as required pursuant to the HSR Act and any other similar merger notification laws or competition regulations of applicable foreign Governmental Authorities.

The closing or other consummation of a transaction constituting a Change of Control, including a Change of Control pursuant to which the contracting Parties to this Agreement remain unchanged, shall be deemed to be an assignment of this Agreement; provided, that notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, neither Party shall be entitled to seek or obtain injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent or restrain any Change of Control constituting an assignment of this Agreement under the foregoing clause, it being understood and agreed that nothing in this proviso shall limit or restrict Sellers right to seek or obtain specific enforcement of Buyers obligations in Section 9.13, or to consent to such assignment.
