2.06 Assignment of Contracts and Rights.
(a) Anything in this Agreement or any other Acquisition Document to the contrary notwithstanding, this Agreement shall not constitute an agreement to assign any Transferred Asset or any claim or right or any benefit arising thereunder or resulting therefrom if an attempted assignment thereof, without the consent of a party thereto or the receipt of any Government Approvals or the satisfaction of any other requirement thereof, would constitute a breach or other contravention thereof or in any way adversely affect the rights of Buyer, Seller or any of Sellers Subsidiaries thereunder. Seller and Buyer will use commercially reasonable efforts (but without any payment of money by Seller or Buyer except as provided in Section 5.07) to obtain the consent of the other parties to any such Transferred Asset or any claim or right or any benefit arising thereunder for the assignment thereof to Buyer as Buyer may reasonably request; provided, however, that Seller shall have no obligation to assign or transfer Contracts, including any licenses
of Intellectual Property or any licenses granted by Seller in connection with the sale, distribution and license of Products in the ordinary course of business, that are not Assumed Contracts. If such consent or Government Approval is not obtained, or if an attempted assignment thereof would be ineffective or would adversely affect the rights of Seller thereunder so that Buyer would not in fact receive all such rights, for the Assumed Contracts set forth on Schedule 2.06, Seller and Buyer will cooperate to discuss and determine feasible arrangements under which Buyer would obtain the benefits and assume the obligations thereunder in accordance with this Agreement to the extent of Sellers rights thereunder, including potential sub-contracting, sub-licensing, or sub-leasing to Buyer (but no more extensive than Sellers existing rights with respect to the Business), or under which Seller would enforce for the benefit of Buyer, with Buyer assuming Sellers obligations, any and all rights of Seller against a third party thereto.
(b) After the Closing: (i) if Seller or any of its Subsidiaries receives any payment, refund or other amount that is a Transferred Asset or is otherwise properly due and owing to Buyer in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, Seller promptly shall remit, or shall cause to be remitted, such amount to Buyer and (ii) if Buyer or any of its Subsidiaries receive any payment, refund or other amount that is an Excluded Asset or is otherwise properly due and owing to Seller or any of its Subsidiaries in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, Buyer promptly shall remit, or shall cause to be remitted, such amount to Seller, in each case subject to Section 5.11.
2.07 Consideration. The consideration payable by Buyer to Seller and Subsidiary Sellers for the Transferred Assets and Transferred Shares shall reflect an aggregate purchase price of Six Hundred Million Dollars ($600,000,000) plus the assumption of the Assumed Liabilities, and shall consist of:
(a) to Subsidiary Sellers, an aggregate amount equal to the value of the Transferred Sub immediately prior to the Closing as determined by Seller in good faith by written notice to Buyer, payable in cash and/or shares of Buyer Common Stock as elected by Seller in its sole discretion by written notice provided to Buyer no less than three (3) Business Days prior to Closing, and each such Subsidiary Seller shall receive the percentage of such aggregate amount set forth on Schedule 3.23 (to the extent in cash, collectively, the Subsidiary Sellers Cash Consideration and, to the extent in Buyer Common Stock, collectively, the Subsidiary Sellers Stock Consideration);
(b) to Seller, an aggregate amount equal to Six Hundred Million Dollars ($600,000,000) less the aggregate amount paid with respect to the Transferred Sub in Section 2.07(a), payable either in cash or in a combination of cash and/or shares of Buyer Common Stock as elected by Seller in its sole discretion by written notice provided to Buyer no less than three (3) Business Days prior to Closing; provided, however, that in no event shall the aggregate value of the Stock Consideration issued pursuant to Section 2.07(a) and (b) exceed One Hundred Million Dollars ($100,000,000) (to the extent in cash, the Seller Cash Consideration, and to the extent in Buyer Common Stock, the Seller Stock Consideration); and
