This excerpt taken from the RAME DEF 14A filed Apr 18, 2006.
The merger agreement may be amended by the parties thereto at any time by execution of an instrument in writing signed on behalf of each of the parties. The merger agreement was amended on November 11, 2005 to fix the number of Tremisis shares to be received by the RAM stockholders at 25,600,000 and to exclude from the limitation on indebtedness for borrowed money at closing certain expenses incurred by RAM in refinancing its existing credit facility. The merger agreement was further amended on February 15, 2006 to include changes occasioned by the fact that the merger will close in the second quarter of 2006, as opposed to the first quarter, as
originally anticipated. Specifically, the agreement was amended to: (i) extend until April 27, 2006 the deadline for mailing this proxy statement to the Tremisis stockholders; (ii) permit RAM to declare and pay its normal quarterly dividend for the first quarter of 2006 in the amount of $500,000; (iii) exclude from the limitation on RAM indebtedness at closing an amount equal to the sum of all capital expenditures incurred by RAM after March 1, 2006; (iv) delete the requirement for Tremisis to retain $1,000,000 for working capital purposes in the event the amount of cash available to be paid to the RAM stockholders at closing is less than $30.0 million due to payments by Tremisis for transaction expenses and to stockholders voting against the merger and demanding conversion of their shares; (v) exclude from the $1,000,000 indemnification basket for post-closing claims that may be asserted by Tremisis the amount of any claims asserted with respect to a specified pending lawsuit; (vi) require the RAM stockholders and REPCO, LLC, their nominee with respect to participation in the KCS exploration prospect in eastern Oklahoma, to pay in full all amounts owing to RAM at the closing; and (vii) except as a condition to closing the requirement that Tremisis shall have paid in full all income taxes due with respect to the year ended December 31, 2005.
