Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On February 19, 2021, Redfin Corporation ("we," "us," or "our") entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") with RentPath Holdings, Inc. ("RentPath") and certain of its wholly owned subsidiaries (together with RentPath Holdings, Inc., the "Sellers"). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, we will acquire, for $608 million in cash, all of the equity interests of RentPath, as reorganized following an internal restructuring of the Sellers (“Reorganized RentPath”) pursuant to the joint chapter 11 plan of reorganization of the Sellers in the chapter 11 cases of the Sellers (the "Plan") and certain of their affiliates filed on February 12, 2020 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”) (the "Acquisition"). In connection with the internal restructuring, certain assets and liabilities related to the Sellers' business of providing digital media services to clients in the residential real estate business will be transferred to Reorganized RentPath, and the remaining assets and liabilities will be transferred to a wind-down company.

In connection with our entry into the Purchase Agreement, we will deposit $60.8 million into an escrow account, and this amount will be applied towards the purchase price at the closing of the Acquisition.

The closing of the Acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including (i) the absence of any law or order prohibiting the closing, (ii) the expiration or termination of any applicable waiting period under applicable antitrust laws and (iii) the Bankruptcy Court having entered orders confirming the Plan and authorizing the Purchase Agreement and certain other matters.

The Purchase Agreement may be terminated by us or the Sellers, under certain circumstances, including if the transaction is not consummated by June 19, 2021 (which date may be extended to August 19, 2021), subject to certain conditions. If we exercise our extension right, we will be required to pay the Sellers an additional $3 million (the "Extension Payment").

The Purchase Agreement may also be terminated by the Sellers if RentPath's board of directors determines in good faith after consulting with outside counsel that it has fiduciary duties to do so, subject to certain conditions. In the event of such a termination that results in an "alternative transaction" (as defined in the Purchase Agreement), Sellers must pay us a $12.16 million termination fee, the Extension Payment if we previously paid it, and our reasonable and documented out-of-pockets costs not exceeding $3.04 million, all upon the closing of such alternative transaction.

The Purchase Agreement also contains customary representations and warranties by us and the Sellers and customary covenants by the Sellers.

A copy of the Purchase Agreement is filed as exhibit 2.1 to this report and is incorporated into this report by reference.

Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On February 19, 2021, we issued a press release announcing our entry into the Purchase Agreement.

- 50 -


SECTION 5.02.    Control of Operations. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall give the Buyer, directly or indirectly, the right to control or direct the operations of the Business prior to the Closing. Prior to the Closing, the Sellers shall exercise, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, complete control and supervision over their respective operations.
SECTION 5.03.    Reasonable Best Efforts/Cooperation. From and after the date of this Agreement, and through the earlier of the Closing and the date on which this Agreement is terminated in accordance with Article VII, each of the Parties shall, and the Buyer shall cause each of its Affiliates to, use its respective reasonable best efforts (unless, with respect to any action, another standard of performance is expressly provided for herein (including in Section 5.05(c))) to take, or cause to be taken, all actions, and to do, or cause to be done all things, necessary, proper or advisable under applicable Laws to consummate and make effective the transactions contemplated by this Agreement on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein as promptly as practicable, including satisfaction, but not waiver, of the conditions to Closing set forth in Article VI.
SECTION 5.04.    Consents. Without limiting the generality of Section 5.03, each of the Parties shall use their reasonable best efforts to obtain, and the Buyer shall cause its Affiliates to use their reasonable best efforts to obtain (unless, in each case, with respect to any action, another standard of performance is expressly provided for herein (including in Section 5.05(c))), all Consents of all Governmental Authorities and other Persons as may be necessary in connection with the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement prior to the Closing, including by timely making or causing to be made all filings and submissions under applicable Law as may be required to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.

Any such Consent containing terms and conditions adversely affecting the Buyer, if any (the “Buyer Related Terms and Conditions”), must be reasonably acceptable to the Buyer. If the Buyer does not approve of the Buyer Related Terms and Conditions, any resulting failure to obtain the applicable Consent shall not constitute a failure by the Sellers to use reasonable best efforts to obtain such Consent.
Buyer acknowledges that certain Consents and waivers with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement may be required from the parties to Contracts or Leases to which a Seller is a party and that obtaining such Consents is not a condition to the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby. If such Consent is not obtained, or if an attempted assignment or transfer thereof would otherwise be ineffective pursuant to applicable Law, such Acquired Asset will not be transferred or assigned until Consent is obtained or such transfer or assignment would become effective pursuant to applicable Law, and Sellers and Buyer will cooperate in a mutually agreeable arrangement that would not materially impair or materially
- 51 -


delay the wind-down of Wind Down Co. under which Buyer would obtain the benefits and assume the obligations thereunder in accordance with this Agreement, including subcontracting, sub-licensing, or sub-leasing to Buyer, or under which such Sellers would enforce their rights thereunder for the benefit of Buyer with Buyer assuming such Sellers’ obligations and any and all rights of such Sellers against a third party thereto.

Each of the Parties shall make, and the Buyer and Sellers shall cause their respective Affiliates to make, any other filings and submissions in other jurisdictions as are mutually agreed by the Parties, if any, as soon as practicable and shall promptly provide any supplemental information or documentation requested by any Governmental Authority relating thereto. The Buyer shall pay all required filing fees in connection with the notifications, filings, registrations, submissions or other materials contemplated by this Section 5.05. Subject to the Confidentiality Agreement and applicable Laws or Orders, the Parties shall, and the Buyer shall cause its Affiliates to, coordinate and cooperate fully and promptly with each other in exchanging such information and providing such assistance as the other parties may reasonably request in connection with the foregoing and in seeking early termination of any applicable waiting periods under the HSR Act; provided, however, that a Party may limit disclosure of competitively or commercially sensitive information to outside counsel for the other Party.
(b)To the extent not prohibited by applicable Law or Order, each Party shall promptly notify the other Parties of the substance of any submission, correspondence, communication, or meeting between it or its Representatives and any Governmental Authority that relate to the subject matter of this Section 5.05 or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. To the extent practicable, each Party shall consult with the other Parties in advance regarding any such submission, correspondence, communication or meeting, shall consider in good faith the views of such Party, and shall provide the other Parties with the opportunity to participate in any such communication or meeting. Buyer shall not, without prior written consent of the Sellers, withdraw or seek to withdraw or refile its HSR notification.

(c)Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, Buyer shall, and the Buyer shall cause its Affiliates to, take any and all actions necessary to obtain expiration or termination of the required waiting periods and any consents, clearances or approvals required under or in connection with Antitrust Laws and to avoid or eliminate each and every impediment under any Antitrust Law, in each case, to cause the Closing and the other transactions contemplated hereby to occur as soon as practicable following the date of this Agreement and, in any event, prior to the Outside Date or the date of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Article VII, whichever is later, including (i) expeditiously complying with or modifying any

(d)From the date of this Agreement through the latest to occur of (i) the date of termination of the required waiting periods under the HSR Act, (ii) the latest date when any Consent of any other applicable Governmental Authority has been obtained, (iii) the Closing Date, and (iv) the date of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Article VII, the Buyer and its Affiliates shall not directly or indirectly (A) effect or enter into any discussions or negotiations with respect to any transaction, including entering into any joint venture or acquiring or agreeing to acquire, by merging with or into or consolidating with, or purchasing a substantial portion of the assets of or any equity in, or by any other manner, any assets or Person, or (B) subject to Section 5.05(c), take (or fail to take) any other action, in the case of either clause (A) or (B), that would reasonably be expected to delay or make more difficult the obtaining of clearance or the expiration or termination of the waiting periods under the HSR Act, or the obtaining of such Consents from any applicable Governmental Authorities.

(e)The obligations set forth in this Section 5.05 shall be in addition to, and not in limitation of the generality of, the matters set forth in Section 5.03 and Section 5.04.

SECTION 5.06.    Bankruptcy Court Matters.

The Buyer will promptly take such actions as are reasonably requested by the Sellers to assist in obtaining entry of the Confirmation Order and any Related Orders, including a finding of adequate assurance of future performance by the Buyer, such as by furnishing affidavits or other documents or information for filing with the Bankruptcy Court for the purposes, among others, of providing necessary assurances of performance by the Buyer under this Agreement; provided, however, that the obligations set forth in this sentence shall not expand the Buyer’s obligations set forth in Section 5.05 with respect to the matters provided therein. Provided the Sellers are not in material breach of this Agreement, the Buyer shall not, without the prior written consent of the Sellers, file, join in, or

otherwise support in any manner any motion or other pleading relating to the sale of the Acquired Assets hereunder (other than the sale contemplated by this Agreement).

All access and investigation pursuant to this Section 5.07 shall be coordinated through the Company’s general counsel or the designee thereof and shall be conducted at the Buyer’s expense and in such a manner as not to unreasonably interfere with the normal operations of the Businesses.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or otherwise, no Seller shall be required to provide access to or to disclose information where such access or disclosure would reasonably be expected to (1) jeopardize the attorney-client privilege, (2) contravene any Law, (3) result in the disclosure of competitively sensitive information, in which case Sellers will limit disclosure of such competitively sensitive information to outside counsel or other outside advisers for the Buyer, or (4) relate to the Sellers’ sale process, including any information related to proposals from other Persons relating to any other potential transaction with the Sellers, provided that in each of clauses (1) – (4) above that the Company shall provide notice to the Buyer that information is being so withheld in a manner that does not result in the disclosure of the underlying information and the Parties shall use commercially reasonable efforts to enter into reasonable and customary arrangements that would permit such access to be provided or information to be disclosed without jeopardizing such privilege, contravening such Law or resulting in the disclosure of such competitively sensitive information, as applicable.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or otherwise, prior to the Closing, (x) without the prior written consent of the Sellers (which shall not be unreasonably

Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, no access or information provided by or on behalf of the Sellers pursuant to this Section 5.07 will modify any of the representations or warranties of the Parties contained in this Agreement or the conditions hereunder to the obligations of the Parties.
(b)The Parties agree that the terms of the Confidentiality Agreement are incorporated herein by reference and shall continue in full force and effect until the Closing. The Buyer shall hold, and shall cause its Representatives (as defined in the Confidentiality Agreement) to hold, any Confidential Information (as defined in the Confidentiality Agreement) in confidence in accordance with the terms of the Confidentiality Agreement, which terms shall apply to the Buyer as if it were a party thereto. Following a termination of this Agreement pursuant to Article VII, the terms of the Confidentiality Agreement, including, for the avoidance of doubt, the confidentiality obligations and the non-solicit and standstill restrictive covenants set forth in Sections 11 and 6, respectively, of the Confidentiality Agreement shall continue in full force and effect until the later of (i) the remaining term thereof set forth therein and (ii) the first anniversary of the date of such termination of this Agreement.

- 56 -


available, other than as a result of a breach by the disclosing party of this Section 5.08 or the Confidentiality Agreement. The Parties acknowledge that Sellers shall file this Agreement with the Bankruptcy Court in connection with obtaining a Confirmation Order.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the existing direct and indirect equityholders of the Sellers that are financial sponsors may disclose publicly available information regarding the transactions contemplated by this Agreement solely to investors and potential investors (but not the public or any other third party) that are subject to customary confidentiality obligations in connection with normal fundraising and reporting activities in the ordinary course.
SECTION 5.09.    Tax Matters.
(a)Sellers (other than the Company) and Wind Down Co. will be responsible for and pay all documentary, stamp, transfer (including real property transfer), motor vehicle registration, sales, use, value added, excise and other similar non-income Taxes and all filing and recording fees (and any interest, penalties and additions with respect to such Taxes and fees) arising from or relating to the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (collectively, “Transfer Taxes”), regardless of the Party on whom liability is imposed under the provisions of applicable Tax Laws relating to such Transfer Taxes. The Parties will consult and cooperate on a reasonable basis in preparing and timely filing all Tax Returns with respect to any Transfer Taxes and obtaining any available exemptions from or reductions in such Transfer Taxes. To the extent the Buyer or any Affiliate of Buyer (including, after the Closing, Reorganized RentPath) is required by applicable Tax Laws to pay any Transfer Taxes to a Governmental Authority, Sellers (other than the Company) and Wind Down Co. will remit an amount equal to such Transfer Taxes to the Buyer not less than five (5) Business Days prior to the due date for such payment.
(b)For purposes of this Agreement (for the avoidance of doubt, including for purposes of the definition of Excluded Taxes), Taxes for any Tax period that begins on or before, and ends after, the Closing Date (a “Straddle Period”) shall be apportioned between the portion of the Straddle Period ending on and including the Closing Date, on the one hand, and the portion of the Straddle Period beginning on the day after the Closing Date, on the other hand, (i) in the case of sales, valued added and other similar Taxes, withholding Taxes, employment and payroll Taxes, and Taxes based on or measured by income, receipts or profits, on an interim closing of the books basis as if the Straddle Period ended on the Closing Date and (ii) in the case of Taxes (other than Taxes described in clause (i)), on a per diem basis. For the avoidance of doubt, the amount of any Property Taxes imposed on or with respect to the Acquired Assets for a Straddle Period that is apportioned to the portion of such Straddle Period beginning on the day after the Closing Date shall be an amount equal to the total amount of such Taxes for the Straddle Period multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days in the Straddle Period beginning on the day after the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the total number of days in the Straddle Period.

(c)Sellers (other than the Company) and Wind Down Co. shall prepare and file, or cause to be prepared and filed, any Tax Return of Reorganized RentPath for any Tax
- 57 -


period ending on or prior to the Closing Date that is required to be filed after the Closing Date, and Buyer shall prepare and file, or cause to be prepared and filed, any Tax Return of Reorganized RentPath for any Straddle Period that is required to be filed after the Closing Date. All such Tax Returns shall be prepared in a manner consistent with past practice except as otherwise required by Law or this Agreement. The Party that is responsible for the preparation of any Tax Return pursuant to this Section 5.09(c) shall provide a draft of such Tax Return to the non-preparing Party at least 30 days prior to the due date for such Tax Return (or, if not practicable, as soon as reasonably practicable) for such non-preparing Party’s review and approval (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed). Sellers (other than the Company) and Wind Down Co. shall pay as and when due all Excluded Taxes shown as due and owing on all such Tax Returns, provided that, to the extent the Buyer or any Affiliate of Buyer (including, after the Closing, Reorganized RentPath) is required by applicable Tax Laws to pay any Excluded Taxes shown as due and owing on any such Tax Return, Sellers (other than the Company) and Wind Down Co. will remit an amount equal to such Excluded Taxes and the reasonable and documented out-of-pocket third-party expenses incurred in connection with the preparation or review of any such Tax Return prepared at the direction of the Buyer, to the Buyer not less than five (5) Business Days prior to the due date for such payment. If, after the Closing, Reorganized RentPath receives a refund for Excluded Taxes, then Buyer will remit an amount equal to such refund (less any reasonable and documented out-of-pocket third-party expenses, including Taxes, incurred by Buyer or any Affiliate of Buyer in obtaining or receiving such refund) to Wind Down Co. within 10 days of the receipt of such refund (provided that Buyer shall be entitled to retain all or any portion of any such refund to the extent that Buyer or any Affiliate of Buyer has paid any Excluded Taxes to a Governmental Authority after the Closing Date or incurred any reasonable and documented out-of-pocket third-party expenses in connection with the preparation of any Tax Return pursuant to this Section 5.09(c), but, in each case, only to the extent that it has not been reimbursed or otherwise compensated for such Taxes or expenses by Sellers (other than the Company) or Wind Down Co.).

(d)After the Closing, Buyer shall control any audit, claim or other Tax proceeding (a “Tax Claim”) against Reorganized RentPath for any Tax period ending on or prior to the Closing Date or any Straddle Period, provided that, for so long as Wind Down Co. is expected to bear (and has funds available to Buyer’s reasonable satisfaction sufficient to pay for any portion of such Taxes), any Liability for Excluded Taxes reasonably expected to result from such Tax Claim, Buyer shall (i) keep Wind Down Co. informed on a reasonable basis with respect to the status of any such Tax Claim, (ii) to the extent permitted by Law, permit Wind Down Co., at Wind Down Co.’s own cost and expense, to participate in any such Tax Claim, including reviewing material submissions prior to filing and attending hearings and (iii) not settle any such Tax Claim without the prior written consent of Wind Down Co. (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed). Sellers (other than the Company) and Wind Down Co. shall pay any Excluded Taxes that become due and owing as a result of any such Tax Claim that Wind Down Co. was expected to bear.

(e)In connection with the preparation and filing of Tax Returns, or the preparation for or defense against any audits, examinations or any other proceedings relating to Taxes with respect to the Business or the Acquired Assets, the Parties (including Wind Down
- 58 -


Co. and Reorganized RentPath) will cooperate on a reasonable basis with each other, including the furnishing or making available during normal business hours of records, personnel (as reasonably required and in such manner as not to interfere unreasonably with the conduct of the Business or any other businesses of the Buyer or the Sellers), books of account, powers of attorney or other materials necessary or helpful for the preparation of such Tax Returns and the conduct of such audits, examinations or other proceedings.

(f)No later than five (5) days prior to the Closing Date, Sellers shall deliver to Buyer Seller’s good faith estimate of any Excluded Taxes constituting Taxes not yet due and payable (including Excluded Taxes that are expected to become due and payable as a result of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) for Buyer’s review (such estimate, the “Pre-Closing Tax Estimate”). The Pre-Closing Tax Estimate shall be eligible for distribution by Wind Down Co. to creditors pursuant to the Plan after the filing of any Tax Return to which such Taxes relate to the extent not used to satisfy Wind Down Co.’s obligation to pay such Taxes pursuant to this Section 5.09.

SECTION 5.10.    Transferred Employees.
(a)No later than seven (7) days after the date of this Agreement, the Sellers shall provide to the Buyer, in the form of the census attached as Exhibit 5.10(a) to the Schedules, an independent contractor roster and employee census that, in each case, to the extent permitted under applicable Law or pursuant to Employee consent, if such Employee consent is required under applicable Law, includes the information set forth on Schedule 5.10(a) for each Employee or independent contractor, and whether such Employee is currently facing discipline by his or her employer or is subject to a performance improvement plan with his or her employer .
(b)No later than fifteen (15) days after the date of this Agreement, the Sellers shall provide to the Buyer, in the form of the census attached as Exhibit 5.10(a) to the Schedules, an updated independent contractor roster and an employee census that in each case, to the extent permitted under applicable Law or pursuant to Employee consent, if such Employee consent is required under applicable Law, includes the information set forth on Schedule 5.10(a), as well as the information set forth on Schedule 5.10(b) for each Employee or independent contractor and whether such Employee is currently facing discipline by his or her employer or is subject to a performance improvement plan with his or her employer. At least fourteen (14) days prior to the then anticipated Closing Date (or no later than two (2) days following an Employee’s hire date if such date is less than fourteen (14) days prior to the then anticipated Closing Date), the Buyer shall deliver, in writing, an offer of employment to each Employee subject to such Employee’s continued employment immediately prior to the Closing to commence immediately following the Closing Date (each, an “Offer Notice”). Each such Offer Notice shall include (i) cash compensation and employee benefits consistent with the requirements set forth in Section 5.11(a), and (ii) the same or a substantially comparable position within Reorganized RentPath and location in the same metropolitan area as in effect immediately prior to the Closing, in each case, for each such Employee. Each such Employee shall have seven (7) days following the receipt of such Offer Notice to provide written notice of their acceptance of the terms specified in such Offer Notice to the Buyers with a copy to the Sellers. If, at the end of such seven (7) day
- 59 -


period, an Employee has not delivered such written notice such Employee shall be deemed to have waived its right to accept such offer of employment. Any Employees who accept such offer by the Closing Date are hereinafter referred to as the “Transferred Employees.”

(c)Not later than ten (10) Business Days following the date hereof, the Sellers shall provide to the Buyer a true and complete service provider census that includes the following information for each individual independent contractor engaged by a Seller as of the date of this Agreement, as applicable: title; hourly wage rate; financial year 2020 spend; engagement start date; expected end date of the project for which the independent contractor is engaged; and function.

SECTION 5.11.    Employee Benefits.
(a)Terms and Conditions of Employment. The Buyer shall provide, or cause to be provided, for a period of one (1) year following the Closing Date or such longer period of time required by applicable Law, to each of the Transferred Employees while employed by the Buyer, (i) compensation (which shall be limited to base salary, base wages and opportunities for commissions and ordinary course annual bonuses, if applicable) that is substantially comparable in the aggregate to the compensation (which is limited to base salary, base wages and opportunities for commissions and ordinary course annual bonuses, if applicable) as provided to such Transferred Employees immediately prior to the Closing Date, provided that the bonuses for the fiscal year in which the Closing Date occurs shall be prorated based on the period of time in the fiscal year following the Closing Date and (ii) employee benefits that, in the aggregate, are substantially comparable to those benefits provided to the Transferred Employees immediately prior to the Closing Date, in each case excluding equity arrangements and excluding any retention, sale, transaction or similar incentive. Effective as of the Closing, Buyer shall, or shall cause an Affiliate to, assume the sponsorship of, and honor obligations under, each Assumed Employee Plan.
(b)Severance. If the employment of a Transferred Employee is terminated by Buyer without cause during the one (1) year period following the Closing Date, such Transferred Employee shall receive, subject to the Buyer’s receipt of an effective release of claims, severance benefits equal to the greater of (i) the severance benefit such Transferred Employee would be entitled to under the severance plan or policy of the Buyer applicable to similarly situated employees of the Buyer, and (ii) (A) in the case of a Transferred Employee listed on Schedule 5.11(b), six (6) months’ of such Transferred Employee’s base salary as in effect at the time of such termination, (B) in the case of a Transferred Employee at the director level or above who is not listed on Schedule 5.11(b), four (4) months’ of such Transferred Employee’s base salary as in effect at the time of such termination, or (C) in the case of a Transferred Employee below the director level, three (3) months’ of such Transferred Employee’s base salary as in effect at the time of such termination.

(c)Credit for Service; Pre-Existing Conditions; Coordination. For purposes of eligibility, vesting and determining vacation accrual (but not for benefit accrual or determining the level or amount of benefits under any employee benefit plans) under the
- 60 -


employee benefit plans of the Buyer providing benefits to Transferred Employees (the “Buyer Plans”), the Buyer shall credit each Transferred Employee with his or her years of service with the Sellers and any predecessor entities, to the same extent as such Transferred Employee was entitled immediately prior to the Closing to credit for such service under any similar Employee Benefit Plan. Buyer shall and shall cause its Affiliates to waive any actively-at-work requirements, limitations on benefits relating to any pre-existing conditions and exclusions and waiting periods for any Transferred Employees and their eligible spouses and dependents. Buyer shall and shall cause its Affiliates to credit such Transferred Employees for purposes of any deductibles, out-of-pocket limits, co-pays and co-insurance under any Buyer Plan for amounts paid in the year of initial participation in the Buyer Plans by Transferred Employees and their respective spouses and dependents under the health plans of the Sellers in such year.

(d)Communication with Employees. Except for communications following the execution of this Agreement and in connection with such execution or in connection with milestones related to the Bankruptcy Cases, in each case, following notice to the Company’s office of the general counsel and during normal business hours and upon reasonable advance notice, from the date hereof until the earlier of the Closing and the termination of this Agreement, the Buyer shall not, and shall cause its Representatives not to, contact any employee of the Sellers in connection with or pertaining to any subject matter of this Agreement without the Sellers’ prior written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed).

(e)COBRA. On the Closing Date, Buyer or one its Affiliates shall commence providing health and welfare coverage to each Transferred Employee and his or her covered dependents and beneficiaries. Buyer and its “buying group” (as defined in Treasury Regulation Section 54.4980B-9, Q&A-2(c)) shall be solely responsible for providing continuation coverage under COBRA for all individuals who are or who become “M&A qualified beneficiaries” (as such term is defined in Section 54.4980B-9 of the Treasury Regulations) with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or who otherwise experience a COBRA qualifying event on or before the Closing Date.

Except as otherwise required by applicable Law, the Buyer shall credit Transferred Employees for their accrued and unused vacation, sick days and personal days through the Closing Date to the extent such vacation, sick and personal days are not paid to such Transferred Employees, and the Transferred Employees will be entitled to use such vacation, sick and personal days in accordance with terms substantially similar to the terms of Sellers’ vacation policy through December 31st of the calendar year in which the Closing occurs. Beginning on January 1 of the calendar year following the calendar year in which the Closing occurs, Transferred Employees will be covered by Buyer’s vacation policies generally applicable to other similarly situated employees of Buyer.

- 61 -


(h)Retention Bonuses. Effective as of the Closing Date, Buyer will grant the opportunity to earn retention bonuses (the “Retention Bonuses”) to certain Transferred Employees, with terms and conditions as specified on Schedule 5.11(h).

(i)Other Matters. Nothing in this Section 5.11 or otherwise in this Agreement, whether express or implied, shall: (i) create any third-party beneficiary or other rights in any union, employee or former employee of the Sellers or any of their Subsidiaries or Affiliates (including any beneficiary or dependent thereof), any other participant in any Employee Benefit Plan or any other Person; (ii) create any rights to continued employment with the Sellers, the Buyer or any of their respective Subsidiaries or Affiliates or in any way limit the ability of the Sellers, the Buyer or any of their respective Subsidiaries or Affiliates to terminate the employment of any individual, including any Transferred Employee, at any time and for any reason; or (iii) constitute or be deemed to constitute an amendment to any Employee Benefit Plan or any other employee benefit plan, program, policy, agreement or arrangement sponsored or maintained by the Sellers, the Buyer or any of their Subsidiaries or Affiliates.

SECTION 5.12.    Change in Name. As promptly as practicable after Closing (and in no event more than thirty (30) days after the Closing), the Sellers shall cause RentPath Gives Back Foundation, Inc. to make any and all filings necessary to change its name and the names of any of its Subsidiaries to a name that does not include the words “RentPath” or any variation thereof. Sellers and their Affiliates may, and Buyer and its Affiliates, as applicable, hereby grant to Sellers a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, nonsublicensable right to, continue temporarily to use the Marks included in the Acquired Assets until the completion of the wind down of Sellers’ estates (i) in Sellers’ and its Affiliates’ corporate names, to the extent used by Sellers and their Affiliates prior to the Closing Date, and (ii) otherwise, in order to wind down Sellers’ estates following the Closing. Nothing in this Section 5.12 shall prohibit Sellers’ use of Marks included in the Acquired Assets to the extent that such use (A) is required by Law to wind down Sellers’ estates, or (B) constitutes nominative or descriptive fair use under United States Laws, which refers to Sellers and would not cause confusion as to the origin of a good or service, including in accurately stating the historical relationship between Sellers and Buyer for information purposes (and in a non-Mark manner) in historical, tax and similar records.

SECTION 5.13.    The Stock Transaction; Reorganization. Following the date hereof, Sellers shall execute the steps specified in Exhibit F. Sellers shall deliver drafts of agreements, instruments, certificates and other documents reasonably necessary to effect the steps described in Exhibit F to the Buyer for the Buyer’s review, comment and approval, keep the Buyer reasonably informed with respect to all material activity concerning the status of the steps described in Exhibit F, and cooperate in good faith with all of the Buyer’s reasonable requests for information related to each such step. The Plan shall provide that Wind Down Co. will perform any and all obligations of Wind Down Co. and of the Sellers following the Closing set forth herein.
SECTION 5.14.    Misallocated Assets. If, after the Closing, Reorganized RentPath, Buyer or any of their Affiliates receives or is otherwise in possession of any Excluded Assets, including moneys or proceeds of vendor refunds, then the Buyer shall, or shall cause
- 62 -


Reorganized RentPath and its Affiliates to, remit such Excluded Assets or an amount equal to such proceeds to Wind Down Co. within ten (10) days after becoming aware of the receipt or possession thereof. If, after the Closing, Wind Down Co. or any of its direct or indirect Subsidiaries receives or is otherwise in possession of any Acquired Assets or money, check, note, draft, instrument, payment or other property as proceeds of any Acquired Assets, then Wind Down Co. shall, and the Sellers (which for the avoidance of doubt does not include Reorganized RentPath) shall cause Wind Down Co. to, remit such Acquired Assets or an amount equal to such proceeds to Reorganized RentPath within ten (10) days after becoming aware of the receipt or possession thereof.
SECTION 5.15.    Oak Valley L/C. At or before the Closing, Buyer shall arrange for substitute letters of credit, Buyer guarantees or other obligations to replace the Oak Valley L/C, assume all obligations thereunder and obtain from the beneficiary under the Oak Valley L/C a full release (in a form satisfactory to the Sellers) of all parties liable, directly or indirectly, for reimbursement to the creditor or fulfillment of other obligations to such beneficiary in connection with amounts drawn under the Oak Valley L/C.
SECTION 5.16.    Common Interest Agreement. If so requested by Sellers and Buyer shall enter into a customary joint defense agreement or common interest agreement in a form to be mutually agreed with one or more of the Sellers or any of their respective Affiliates with respect to any information provided to Buyer, or to which Buyer gains access, pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby.
SECTION 5.17.    Release of Transferred Employees from Restrictive Covenants. Effective as of the Closing, (a) Sellers shall have released all Transferred Employees from any confidentiality obligations to the extent necessary for such employees to provide services to Buyer and its Affiliates, and (b) Sellers and Wind Down Co. shall not, and shall cause their respective Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, (i) enforce any non-competition, non-solicitation, non-interference, no-hire or similar covenant with respect to any such Transferred Employees, and (ii) take any other action that could reasonably restrict or limit any such Transferred Employees from providing employment or other services to Buyer or its Affiliates.
SECTION 5.18.    Post-Closing Confidentiality. From and after the Closing, the Sellers and Wind Down Co. will, and will cause their respective Affiliates to, hold in strict confidence, and will not use to the detriment of Buyer or any of its Affiliates, all non-public information with respect to the Business, the Acquired Assets or the Assumed Liabilities. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any Seller or Wind Down Co. may disclose such information (a) if such Seller or Wind Down Co. is compelled to disclose the same by judicial or administrative process or by other requirements of law (but subject to the following provisions of this Section 5.18), (b) if the same currently is in the public domain or hereafter is in the public domain through no fault of such Seller or Wind Down Co. or any of its Affiliates or (c) if the same is later acquired by such Seller or Wind Down Co. or any of its Affiliates from another source that is not under an obligation to another Person to keep such information confidential, or (d) if necessary in connection with the administration of the Bankruptcy Cases and the wind-down of the Sellers’ estates. If any Seller, Wind Down Co. or any of its Affiliates
- 63 -


(the “Disclosing Party”) becomes legally required (by interrogatories, requests for information or documents in legal proceedings, subpoena, civil investigative demand, rule of civil procedure or other similar process) to disclose any such non-public confidential information, the Disclosing Party shall provide Buyer with prompt written notice of any such requirement so that Buyer may seek, at Buyer’s sole cost and expense, a protective order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with the provisions of this Section 5.18. If, in the absence of a protective order or other remedy or the receipt of a waiver by Buyer, the Disclosing Party nonetheless, based on the written advice of outside counsel, is required to disclose such non-public confidential information to any tribunal or else stand liable for contempt or suffer other censure or penalty, the Disclosing Party, without liability hereunder, may disclose that portion of such information which such counsel advises the Disclosing Party it is legally required to disclose. Each of the Sellers and or Wind Down Co. acknowledges and agrees that money damages would not be an adequate remedy for any breach of its agreements contained in this Section 5.18 and that in addition to any other remedies available to Buyer, Buyer shall be entitled to the remedies of injunction, specific performance and other equitable relief for any threatened or actual breach of this Section 5.18.
SECTION 5.19.    Directors and Officers; D&O Runoff Policy.
(a)The Buyer acknowledges and agrees that neither the Buyer nor Reorganized RentPath nor any of their respective controlled Affiliates, shall make any claim against, or seek any indemnification from, any present or former partner, manager, director or officer of the Sellers (each, a “D&O Indemnified Party”) with respect to the execution of their duties up to the termination of their appointment or under, in connection with, arising out of, resulting from or in any way related to this Agreement, any other Related Agreements, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or any other matter contemplated hereby or thereby, or the process leading up to the execution and delivery of this Agreement, any other Related Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby.
(b)The Buyer agrees that all rights to coverage, reimbursement, indemnification, advancement of expenses and exculpation from Liabilities for acts or omissions occurring prior to the Closing now existing in favor of the D&O Indemnified Parties, whether pursuant to Law, Contract (whether or not such Contract is a Transferred Contract), the organizational and governing documents of each of the Sellers (the “Organizational Documents”) (whether or not such Organizational Documents are Acquired Assets), the Acquired Insurance Policies or otherwise, will remain obligations of the Sellers, and will not be acquired by the Buyer, and shall not be obligations of Reorganized RentPath or, for the avoidance of doubt, the Buyer. The Parties acknowledge and agree that (i) the Sellers will have the benefit of an irrevocable “tail” insurance policy naming the current and former D&O Indemnified Parties as direct beneficiaries with a claims period of at least six years from the Closing Date (the “D&O Runoff Policy”), (ii) such D&O Runoff Policy shall be an Excluded Asset, (iii)  Reorganized RentPath shall have no rights pursuant to the D&O Runoff Policy following Closing, and (iv) for the avoidance of doubt, none of Reorganized RentPath, the Buyer and their respective Affiliates shall have any Liabilities to any of the D&O Indemnified Parties (any of which Liabilities shall constitute Excluded Liabilities).
- 64 -



(c)The D&O Indemnified Parties are express third party beneficiaries of, and shall be entitled to rely on and enforce, the provisions of this Section 5.19.

SECTION 5.20.    No Solicitation of Alternative Transactions.
(a)Until the earlier of the Closing and such time as this Agreement is terminated in accordance with Article VII (such period, the “No-Shop Period”), no Seller shall, and each Seller shall cause its respective Representatives and Affiliates not to, directly or indirectly, (i) solicit, initiate or knowingly encourage any inquiry, proposal or offer (each, a “Proposal”) relating to a transaction involving the acquisition of (A) all or a substantial portion of the assets of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, (B) any equity interests of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries, or (C) any joint venture or other strategic investment in or involving the Company or any of its Subsidiaries ((A), (B) and (C), each, an “Alternative Transaction”), (ii) enter into, participate in or encourage any discussions or negotiations relating to, or disclose, furnish or afford access to any information concerning the Sellers or the Business (including the Sellers’ personnel, businesses, properties, books or records) in connection with, or assist, or cooperate with any Person in making or proposing, or take any other action to facilitate, any Proposal or Alternative Transaction, or (iii) authorize or enter into any agreement or understanding (whether binding or nonbinding, written or oral) relating to, or engage in or consummate, any Proposal or Alternative Transaction; provided, however, that, from and after the date the Bankruptcy Court enters the Scheduling Order, the foregoing shall not restrict, prohibit or otherwise limit Sellers or any of their respective Representatives or Affiliates from responding to (including by furnishing information to (in which case Sellers shall furnish Buyer with any such information not previously furnished to Buyer)) and entering into discussions or negotiations with any third parties who, absent any such prior encouragement, solicitation or initiation of any inquiries regarding a Proposal or Alternative Transaction by Sellers in violation of this Section 5.20(a), contact the Sellers with respect to an Alternative Transaction.
(b)If any of the Sellers or their respective Affiliates or their respective Representatives, during the No-Shop Period, receives any Proposal, or any request for disclosure or access as referenced in Section 5.20(a), such Seller shall, and shall cause its Representatives and Affiliates and its and its Affiliates’ Representatives to, within forty-eight (48) hours of receipt of such Proposal or request, inform Buyer regarding such Proposal or request, and furnish Buyer with a copy of such Proposal or request or, if not in writing, with a reasonably detailed description thereof (including, in the case of the receipt of a Proposal or if the Sellers provide disclosure or access as referenced in Section 5.20(a), the name of the Person that sent the Proposal or to whom disclosure or access was provided), and shall keep Buyer reasonably informed of the status and details of any future notices.

SECTION 5.21.    Domain Names. As soon as practicable following the date hereof, and in no event later than March 1, 2021, the Sellers shall renew the domain name registrations of livelovely.com and apartmentguide.com in the name of RentPath, LLC for at least one additional year each such that their respective expiration dates shall not be before January 1, 2022.
- 65 -


SECTION 5.22.    Insurance Policies.
(a)Following the Closing, to the extent that any of the Buyer’s rights to insurance under the Acquired Insurance Policies, or to proceeds therefrom (including any rights pursuant to Section 5.22(b)), relating to loss, damage, destruction, taking or other impairment of any of the Acquired Assets or to loss, damages or Liabilities arising from Assumed Liabilities, including insurance for occurrences, direct property loss or damage and business interruption or other time element losses, are not transferable or assignable, then as promptly as practicable following receipt of a written request from the Buyer, each of the Sellers and Wind Down Co. shall use commercially reasonable efforts to pursue recovery on all such claims; in its own name or as attorney-in-fact for the Buyer, including the rights to make, administer and settle claims and losses under any Acquired Insurance Policies and to pursue and exhaust applicable coverage (including initiating, prosecuting and resolving litigation), subject to the direction and control by the Buyer.

The Buyer, the Sellers and Wind Down Co. shall cooperate in the making and recovery of any such claims for insurance proceeds, and the Sellers and Wind Down Co. shall make available such documents and witnesses as reasonably requested by the Buyer. Upon the receipt by the Sellers or Wind Down Co. of any such insurance proceeds or condemnation proceeds relating thereto, the Sellers and Wind Down Co., as applicable, shall as promptly as practicable pay the Buyer such proceeds (but only to the extent those proceeds represent payment or reimbursement by an insurer for any loss, damage, destruction, taking or other impairment or other time element losses of any Acquired Assets or any loss, damage or Liability arising from any Assumed Liabilities suffered or incurred by the Buyer). Additionally, the Buyer shall pay the amount of any deductibles, self-insured retentions, co-insurance or similar expenses (other than increases in premiums) that would otherwise be borne by the Sellers and Wind Down Co., according to the specific terms and conditions of the Acquired Insurance Policies, as a result of any such claims, damages or losses.
(b)Following the Closing, to the extent any Acquired Insurance Policy, provides “occurrence based” liability insurance, the Sellers and Wind Down Co. shall request that, prior to the Closing, the Buyer be added as an additional named insured, on a primary and noncontributory basis solely with respect to that portion of claims, damage or loss arising from or relating to the Acquired Assets and Assumed Liabilities under such Acquired Insurance Policy for the current policy year and the preceding six (6) policy years.

Additionally, to the extent any Acquired Insurance Policy, provides “claims made” employment practices liability insurance coverage or fiduciary liability insurance coverage, the Sellers and Wind Down Co. shall procure extended reporting periods such that each such Acquired Insurance Policy continues to provide similar coverage, in all material respects, for pre-Closing wrongful acts, errors or omissions arising from or relating to the Acquired Assets and Assumed Liabilities from the current policy year and for as many years following the Closing as Sellers’ insurance carriers are willing to agree, in no event to exceed six (6) years.
- 66 -


(c)The Buyer shall, within five (5) calendar days after receipt of written request therefor, reimburse the Sellers and Wind Down Co. for any documented out-of-pocket cost or expense reasonably incurred in the performance of the Sellers’ or Wind Down Co.’s obligations under this Section 5.22.
(d)Buyer shall not, and shall cause its controlled Affiliates not to, without the consent of Wind Down Co. amend, cancel, fail to maintain or permit to lapse any Acquired Insurance Policy, until such policies expire in accordance with their terms.
SECTION 5.23.    Licenses.

SECTION 6.04.    Frustration of Closing Conditions. No Party may rely on the failure of any condition set forth in this Article VI to be satisfied if such failure was caused by such Party’s Intentional Breach of this Agreement, including failure to use its reasonable best efforts to cause the Closing to occur, as required by Section 5.03, or to satisfy its obligations under Section 5.04 or Section 5.05. As used herein, “Intentional Breach” shall mean, with respect to any representation, warranty, agreement or covenant, an action or omission (including a failure to cure circumstances) taken or omitted to be taken that the breaching Person intentionally or knowingly takes (or intentionally or knowingly fails to take) and would, or would reasonably be expected to, cause a material breach of such representation, warranty, agreement or covenant.
ARTICLE VII

SECTION 7.01.    Survival. The Parties, intending to modify any applicable statute of limitations, agree that: (a) except in connection with Fraud, (i) the representations and warranties in this Agreement and in any certificate delivered pursuant hereto, and (ii) the covenants and agreements in this Agreement to the extent such covenants and agreements only require performance prior to the Closing shall, in each case, terminate effective as of the Closing and shall not survive the Closing for any purpose, and thereafter there shall be no liability on the part of, nor shall any claim be made by, any Party in respect thereof; and (b) to the extent the covenants and agreements in this Agreement contemplate performance after the Closing or expressly by their terms survive the Closing, such covenants and agreements shall survive the Closing in accordance with their respective terms only to the extent and for such period as shall be required for the Party required to perform under such covenant and agreement to complete the performance required thereby.
SECTION 7.02.    Termination. This Agreement may be terminated and the transactions contemplated hereby may be abandoned at any time prior to the Closing:
(a)by mutual written agreement of the Sellers and the Buyer;
(b)by the Sellers or the Buyer at any time after 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on the date that is four (4) months following the date hereof (the “Outside Date”), if the Closing shall not have occurred on or prior to such time; provided, however, that neither the Sellers nor the Buyer shall have the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.02(b) if (x) the Sellers’ or the Buyer’s failure to perform any covenants or agreements of the Sellers or the Buyer set forth in this Agreement has resulted in the failure of the Closing to occur prior to the Outside Date, respectively, or (y) the Sellers (in the case of a termination by the Sellers) or the Buyer (in the case of a termination by the Buyer) are then in material breach of this Agreement; provided further, however, that if, as of the date five (5) Business Days prior to the Outside Date, all of the closing conditions set forth in Article VI have been satisfied or waived (other than (i) the closing condition set forth in Section 6.01(a) (which is not satisfied as a result of a Restraint related to any Antitrust Law), Section 6.01(b) and/or Section 6.01(c), and (ii) those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at the Closing), then the Outside Date may be extended for
- 70 -


one (1) additional two (2)-month period following the Outside Date at the election of either the Sellers or Buyer by delivery of written notice to the other Parties at least two (2) Business Days prior to the Outside Date (such date notice is delivered, the “Notice Date”). If the Outside Date is extended by the Buyer pursuant to this Section 7.02(b), the Buyer shall pay, or cause to be paid, to the Company by wire transfer of immediately available funds an amount equal to $3,000,000 (the “Extension Amount”) within two (2) Business Days following the Notice Date;

(c)by the Sellers or the Buyer, upon written notice to the other Party, if any Restraint permanently prohibiting the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby shall have become final and nonappealable; it being agreed that the Parties will promptly appeal any adverse determination which is not non-appealable and pursue such appeal with reasonable diligence;

(d)by the Buyer, if any representation or warranty of the Sellers set forth in Article III shall be or shall have become inaccurate or the Sellers shall have breached or failed to perform any of their covenants or other agreements set forth in this Agreement, which inaccuracy, breach or failure to perform would give rise to the failure of any of the conditions set forth in Section 6.02(a) or Section 6.02(b), and which inaccuracy, breach or failure to perform cannot be cured by the Sellers or, if capable of being cured, shall not have been cured prior to the earlier of (i) the Outside Date and (ii) the date that is thirty (30) calendar days after receipt by the Sellers of notice in writing from the Buyer specifying the nature of such inaccuracy, breach or failure to perform and requesting that it be cured; provided, however, that the Buyer shall provide such notice to the Sellers within three (3) Business Days after becoming aware of any such inaccuracy, breach or failure to perform that would be reasonably likely to give rise to the failure of any of the conditions set forth in Section 6.02(a) or Section 6.02(b); it being hereby acknowledged and agreed by the Parties that any delay in providing such notice shall not affect the Buyer’s right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.02(d); provided further, however, that the Buyer shall not have the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.02(d) if the Buyer is then in material breach of this Agreement;

(e)by the Sellers, if any representation or warranty of the Buyer set forth in Article IV shall be or shall have become inaccurate or the Buyer shall have breached or failed to perform any of its covenants or other agreements set forth in this Agreement, which inaccuracy, breach or failure to perform would give rise to the failure of any of the conditions set forth in Section 6.03(a) or Section 6.03(b), and which inaccuracy, breach or failure to perform cannot be cured by the Buyer, as the case may be, or, if capable of being cured, shall not have been cured prior to the earlier of (i) the Business Day prior to the Outside Date and (ii) the date that is thirty (30) calendar days after receipt by the Buyer of notice in writing from the Sellers specifying the nature of such inaccuracy, breach or failure to perform and requesting that it be cured; provided, however, that the Sellers shall provide such notice to the Buyer within three (3) Business Days after becoming aware of any such inaccuracy, breach or failure to perform that would be reasonably likely to give rise to the failure of any of the conditions set forth in Section 6.03(a) or Section 6.03(b); it being hereby acknowledged and agreed by the Parties that any delay in providing such notice shall not affect the Sellers’ right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.02(e); provided further, however, that the Sellers shall not have the right to
- 71 -


terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.02(e) if any of them is in material breach of this Agreement; or

(f)by the Company to enter into a definitive agreement with regard to an Alternative Transaction, if the Board determines in good faith after consultation with outside counsel that its continued performance under this Agreement or any other Related Agreement would be inconsistent with its fiduciary duties under applicable Law, subject to the payment of the Termination Fee and Expense Amounts in accordance with Section 7.03(b); provided, however, that if the Board makes such determination as a result of a written Proposal from a third party (and such Proposal was not initiated, solicited, knowingly encouraged or knowingly facilitated by any Seller or any of their respective Representatives or Affiliates in breach of Section 5.20), Sellers shall not terminate the Agreement until the third (3rd) Business Day after receipt of such Proposal, and, at the request of Buyer, Sellers shall negotiate in good faith with respect to any changes, modifications or supplements to this Agreement that would allow the Board not to make such determination to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7.02(f);

(h)by the Sellers or the Buyer upon the acceleration of the obligations under the DIP Credit Agreement; and

- 72 -


(vii)following entry by the Bankruptcy Court of the Confirmation Order, (A) the Sale Provisions are amended, modified or supplemented in in a manner materially adverse to the Buyer without Buyer’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), or (B) the Confirmation Order is voided, reversed or vacated or is subject to a stay such that the Confirmation Order is not in full force and effect.

The Party desiring to terminate this Agreement pursuant to any of clause (b), (c), (d), (e), (f), (g), (h) or (i) of this Section 7.02 shall give written notice of such termination to the other Party in accordance with Section 8.01 specifying the provision or provisions hereof pursuant to which such termination is effected.
SECTION 7.03.    Effect of Termination; Etc.
(a)In the event of the termination of this Agreement in accordance with Section 7.02, (i) this Agreement shall thereafter become void and have no effect and the transactions contemplated hereby shall be abandoned, except that this Section 7.03, Section 5.08, Article VIII, the obligations in respect of the Escrow Funds set forth in Section 2.04 and the Confidentiality Agreement shall survive termination of this Agreement and remain valid and binding obligations of each of the Parties, and (ii) subject to the terms and conditions of the surviving provisions of this Agreement, there shall be no liability or obligation on the part of the Buyer or the Sellers under or in connection with this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby, or in connection with the termination hereof. Notwithstanding anything in the immediately preceding sentence of this Section 7.03(a) to the contrary, termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.02 shall not release any Party from any Liability (A) pursuant to the sections specified above in this Section 7.03(a) that survive such termination, (B) for an Intentional Breach of this Agreement, or (C) Fraud.
(b)If this Agreement is terminated by Sellers pursuant to Section 7.02(f), then Sellers shall pay, or cause to be paid, to Buyer the sum of (i) an amount equal to two percent (2%) of the Purchase Price, (ii) the Extension Amount, if previously paid to the Company, and (iii) an aggregate amount sufficient to pay or reimburse the Buyer for its reasonable and documented out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by the Buyer or any of its Affiliates in connection with this Agreement or the Related Agreements and the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby in an amount not to exceed one-half of one percent (0.5%) of the Purchase Price (such sum, collectively, the “Termination Fee and Expenses Amounts”), no later than three (3) Business Days after the date upon which Sellers consummate such Alternative Transaction.

For the avoidance of doubt, the covenants set forth in this Section 7.03(b) are continuing obligations, separate and independent from the other obligations of the Parties (and shall not limit any of the Parties’ other rights and remedies under or in respect of this Agreement) and shall survive termination of this Agreement.
Each of the Parties (on behalf of itself and its Affiliates) acknowledges and agrees that following any termination of this Agreement in circumstances under which the Sellers are required to pay the Termination Fee and Expenses Amounts, the Sellers’ payment of the
- 73 -


Termination Fee and Expenses Amounts (if any) shall constitute the sole and exclusive remedy of the Buyer.
Nothing contained in this Section 7.03(b) shall prevent, limit, impede or otherwise impair the ability of the Buyer to seek, enforce or otherwise pursue any remedy available to it pursuant to Section 8.13 at any time prior to termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 7.02, it being understood that the Buyer shall not be permitted or entitled to receive both (but may seek both in the alternative) a grant of specific performance that results in a Closing and payment of the Termination Fee and Expenses Amounts. The Parties acknowledge and agree that in no event shall the Sellers be required to pay the Termination Fee and Expenses Amounts on more than one occasion.
(c)Each of the Parties acknowledges that the agreements contained in this Section 7.03 are an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and that without these agreements, the other Parties would not enter into this Agreement.

No failure or delay by any Party in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.
SECTION 8.03.    Assignment. No Party may assign any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Parties, and any attempt to assign this Agreement without such consent shall be void and of no effect, provided that (x) the Buyer may assign any or all of its rights under this Agreement to an Affiliate without the prior written consent of the Sellers and (y) from and after the Closing, any Seller may assign any or all of its rights or obligations under this Agreement to Wind Down Co. without the prior written consent of the Buyer.

- 75 -


In the event of any conflict between the terms of this Agreement and the terms of the Confirmation Order or the Plan, as the case may be, the terms of the Confirmation Order or the Plan, as the case may be, shall govern.
SECTION 8.05.    Severability. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any rule of Law or public policy, all other terms and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any Party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the Parties as closely as possible in a mutually acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement be consummated as originally contemplated to the fullest extent possible.

SECTION 8.07.    Parties in Interest. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Nothing in this Agreement (other than, Section 5.19 and, following the Closing, the provisions of Section 8.15, to the extent applicable to Seller Related Parties and Buyer Related Parties, which Seller Related Parties and Buyer Related Parties shall be express third-party beneficiaries of, and shall be entitled to rely on and enforce, the provisions of Section 8.15), express or implied, is intended to confer upon any Person other than the Buyer, the Sellers and their respective successors or permitted assigns, any rights or remedies under or by reason of this Agreement, except for the right of the Sellers, on behalf of the holders of equity interests in the Sellers, to pursue damages and other relief (including damages based on the loss of the economic benefits of the transactions contemplated hereby (including the loss of premium offered to such holders and taking into consideration all relevant matters, including other combination opportunities and the time value of money) and equitable relief, which damages and other relief shall also be available to such holders) in the event of any breach of this Agreement by the Buyer, which right is hereby acknowledged and agreed by the Buyer and which right may, for the avoidance of doubt, only be enforced prior to the Closing by the Sellers on behalf of such holders; it being understood and agreed by the Parties that such right, as well as any such damages or other relief, shall be subject to all the limitations, conditions and other provisions contained elsewhere in this Agreement.
SECTION 8.08.    Expenses.

(a)This Agreement and any controversy, dispute or claim arising hereunder or related hereto (whether by contract, tort or otherwise) shall be governed by and construed and
- 76 -


enforced in accordance with the domestic Laws of the State of Delaware without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the Laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware.
(b)EACH PARTY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT SUCH PARTY MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY ACTION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE OTHER AGREEMENTS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT. EACH PARTY CERTIFIES AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT (I) NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF ACTION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER, (II) SUCH PARTY UNDERSTANDS AND HAS CONSIDERED THE IMPLICATIONS OF THIS WAIVER, (III) SUCH PARTY MAKES THIS WAIVER VOLUNTARILY, AND (IV) SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8.09(b).

(c)The Parties to this Agreement submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court in respect of the interpretation and enforcement of the provisions of this Agreement, and any controversy, dispute or claim arising hereunder or related hereto (whether by contract, tort or otherwise), and any related agreement, certificate or other document delivered in connection herewith and by this Agreement waive, and agree not to assert, any defense in any action for the interpretation or enforcement of this Agreement, and any controversy, dispute or claim arising hereunder or related hereto (whether by contract, tort or otherwise), and any related agreement, certificate or other document delivered in connection herewith that they are not subject to such jurisdiction or that such action may not be brought or is not maintainable in such court or that this Agreement may not be enforced in or by such court, that the action is brought in an inconvenient forum, or that the venue of the action is improper; provided, however, that if, upon the closing of the Bankruptcy Cases, the Bankruptcy Court declines to accept jurisdiction upon a motion to reopen the Bankruptcy Cases, the Parties agree to unconditionally and irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Chancery Court of the State of Delaware (or in the event (but only in the event) that such court does not have subject matter jurisdiction over such Action in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware) and any state appellate court therefrom within the State of Delaware and any appellate court from any thereof, for the resolution of any such Action. The Parties intend that all foreign jurisdictions will enforce any decree of the Bankruptcy Court in any Action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any Related Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby.

SECTION 8.10.    Counterparts, Etc. This Agreement may be executed with counterpart signature pages or in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, and all of which shall constitute one and the same agreement, and shall become effective when a counterpart signature page or a counterpart of this Agreement has been signed by each Party and delivered to the other Parties. Delivery of an executed counterpart signature
- 77 -


page to this Agreement or an executed counterpart of this Agreement by email in “portable document format” (“.pdf”) form, or by other electronic means intended to preserve the original graphic and pictorial appearance of a document, will have the same effect as physical delivery of the paper document bearing the original signature.
SECTION 8.11.    Headings, Etc. The provision of the Table of Contents, the division of this Agreement into Articles, Sections and other subdivisions, and the insertion of headings are for convenience of reading only and shall not affect or be utilized in construing or interpreting this Agreement. All references in this Agreement to any Article, Section, subsection or clause are to the corresponding Article, Section, subsection or clause of this Agreement, unless otherwise specified.
SECTION 8.12.    Further Assurances. From time to time, at the request of any Party hereto and, except as otherwise set forth herein, at the expense of the Party so requesting, each other Party shall execute and deliver to such requesting Party such documents and take such other action as such requesting Party may reasonably request in order to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby.
SECTION 8.13    Specific Performance. The Parties agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed by the Parties in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached. It is accordingly agreed that the Buyer, on the one hand, and the Sellers on the other hand, shall be entitled to an injunction or injunctions to prevent breaches of this Agreement by the other (as applicable) and to enforce specifically the terms and provisions of this Agreement and to thereafter cause the transactions contemplated by this Agreement to be consummated on the terms and subject to the conditions thereto set forth in this Agreement. The foregoing rights are in addition to and without limitation of any other remedy to which the Parties may be entitled at law or in equity.
The Parties further agree not to assert that a remedy of specific performance is unenforceable, invalid, contrary to law or inequitable for any reason, nor to assert that a remedy of monetary damages would provide an adequate remedy. In respect of any such action for specific performance, each of the Parties hereby waives (a) any defenses in any action for specific performance, including the defense that a remedy at law would be adequate, and (b) any requirement under any Law to post a bond or other security as a prerequisite to obtaining equitable relief.
If any Party brings any action to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions hereof by any other Party, the Outside Date shall automatically be extended by (i) the amount of time during which such action is pending, plus twenty (20) Business Days, or (ii) such other later date established by the Delaware court presiding over such action.
The Parties further agree that (A) by seeking the remedies provided for in this Section 8.13, no Party shall in any respect waive its right to seek at any time any other form of relief that may be available to it under this Agreement or any other agreement or document entered into in connection herewith or the transactions contemplated hereby (including monetary damages) in the event that this Agreement has been terminated or in the event that the remedies provided for
- 78 -


in this Section 8.13 are not available or otherwise are not granted, and (B) nothing set forth in this Section 8.13 shall require any Party to institute any proceeding for (or limit any Party’s right to institute any proceeding for) specific performance under this Section 8.13 prior to or as a condition to exercising any termination right under Article VII, nor shall the commencement of any legal proceeding pursuant to this Section 8.13 or anything set forth in this Section 8.13 restrict or limit any Party’s right to terminate this Agreement in accordance with the terms of Article VII or pursue any other remedies under this Agreement or any other agreement or document entered into in connection herewith or the transactions contemplated hereby that may be available then or thereafter.
SECTION 8.14.    Limitation on Liability. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, (a) except in the case of Fraud or Intentional Breach, the maximum aggregate Liability of the Sellers under this Agreement shall not exceed an amount equal to the Escrow Amount and (b) in no event shall any Party have any liability for punitive damages, except to the extent payable to a third party.
SECTION 8.15.    Non-Recourse. All claims or causes of action (whether in contract or in tort, in law or in equity) that may be based upon, arise out of or relate to this Agreement, or the negotiation, execution or performance of this Agreement (including any representation or warranty made in or in connection with this Agreement or as an inducement to enter into this Agreement), may be made only against the Persons that are expressly identified as Parties. No Person who is not a named Party, including any past, present or future director, officer, employee, incorporator, member, partner, direct or indirect equityholder, Affiliate, agent, attorney, banker or other consultant or Representative of any named Party (“Related Parties”), shall have any liability (whether in contract or in tort, in law or in equity, or based upon any theory that seeks to impose liability of an entity party against its owners or affiliates) for any obligations or liabilities arising under, in connection with or related to this Agreement or for any claim based on, in respect of, or by reason of this Agreement or its negotiation or execution; and each Party waives and releases all such liabilities, claims and obligations against any such Related Party.
SECTION 8.16.    Mutual Release; Injunction. The Confirmation Order, as amended, shall contain (a) mutual releases from the Sellers and their Affiliates and Representatives and the Buyer and its Affiliates and Representatives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, from all Claims relating to, among other things, the negotiation, execution, and implementation of this Agreement, and (b) customary release, exculpation and injunction provisions, and such provisions shall apply to the Buyer and Buyer’s Representatives to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law and be no less favorable to the Buyer and Buyer’s Representatives than the release, exculpation, and injunction provisions in the current Confirmation Order.

Redfin Announces Agreement to Acquire RentPath for $608 Million

Acquisition brings together a leading site for homebuying with a leading site for rental listings

SEATTLE and ATLANTA — Feb. 19, 2021 — (NASDAQ: RDFN) — Redfin (www.redfin.com) has entered into an agreement to acquire RentPath (www.rentpath.com), the Atlanta-based owner of ApartmentGuide.com, Rent.com, and Rentals.com, for $608 million in cash. The acquisition will bring together a leading site for buying a home with a leading site for renting a home, giving anyone trying to move a complete view of her options.

“RentPath has more than 20,000 apartment buildings on its rental websites, and grew its traffic more than 25% last year,” said Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman. “We can almost double that audience, as one in five of Redfin.com’s 40+ million monthly visitors also wants to see homes for rent. Together with RentPath, we can create an online destination for every North American to find a home.”

“We are energized by the transformational potential of this combination to help more consumers find the right home and help property managers find residents,” said Dhiren Fonseca, RentPath's CEO. “RentPath's customers experienced all-time highs in traffic and leads from us last year and our value proposition to multifamily property managers has never been better. By acquiring RentPath, Redfin will be as committed as we are to the rental market. As part of the Redfin family, our platform will be well positioned to lead the market in the quality and value of our products, while giving our current and future customers access to many more high-intent renters through Redfin’s extensive network.”

Redfin, the technology-powered real estate brokerage, operates the #1 nationwide brokerage search site. The company uses a combination of local real estate agents and technology to make it easier, faster and less costly to buy or sell a home.

RentPath simplifies the apartment search experience for millions of consumers, connecting property-management companies with qualified prospective renters. The RentPath network of websites reached 16 million monthly visitors on average in 2020, and recorded full year 2020 revenue of $194 million.

Strategic Rationale

Better Search Experience: More than a third of North American adults currently rent, so showing rentals is an important expansion of Redfin’s mission. When consumers think of home, they’ll think of Redfin, whether they are hoping to rent or buy, sell, or find a tenant. Redfin expects RentPath’s rental listings to be on Redfin.com in late 2022.
Better Value for Advertisers: Redfin will increase RentPath’s reach, creating more rental opportunities for the rental properties promoted on RentPath sites. Redfin estimates that 10 million of Redfin’s 40+ million monthly online visitors may also be interested in rental properties.



Traffic Growth: Both Redfin and RentPath grew traffic by over 20% in 2020 and have powerful channels for meeting customers and marketing listings directly to consumers. Together with RentPath, Redfin will aim to compete with the largest portals on every front, for every visitor.
Improving the Rental Experience: While Redfin does not expect to hire real estate agents to represent renters, the company is excited about the opportunities to make the whole process of renting an apartment better.

Redfin will provide further details on the transaction on a conference call which will take place on February 19, 2021 at 5 a.m. Pacific Time / 8 a.m. Eastern Time. Call information will be posted on Redfin’s investor relations website.
