As promptly as practicable (and in any event, subject to the timely receipt of the approval of Parent as contemplated within this Section 5.2(a), within five business days) after the execution of this Agreement, the Company shall, in accordance with its Charter Documents and applicable Legal Requirements, provide to its stockholders an Information Statement and other appropriate documents in connection with the obtaining of written consents of the stockholders of the Company in favor of the adoption of this Agreement and approval of the Certificate Amendment and the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Information Statement shall include the unanimous recommendation of the board of directors of the Company in favor of the adoption of this Agreement and the approval of the Certificate Amendment and the other transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

As promptly as practicable after the execution of this Agreement, the Company shall submit to the stockholders of the Company (in a manner satisfactory to Parent) for approval by such number of stockholders of the Company as is required by the terms of Section 280G(b)(5)(B) of the Code a written consent in favor of a single proposal to render the parachute payment provisions of Section 280G of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder (collectively, Section 280G) inapplicable to any and all payments and/or benefits provided pursuant to Company Employee Plans, Company Employee Agreements or other Contracts that might result, separately or in the aggregate, in the payment of any amount and/or the provision of any benefit that would not be deductible by reason of Section 280G or that would be subject to an excise tax under Section 4999 of the Code (together, the Section 280G Payments). Any such stockholder approval shall be obtained in a manner which satisfies all applicable requirements of Section 280G(b)(5)(B) of the Code and the Treasury Regulations thereunder, including Q-7 of Section 1.280G-1 of such Treasury Regulations.
