(a)Within ninety (90) days after the Closing Date, Buyer shall prepare and deliver to Seller: (i) a proposed final balance sheet of the Company prepared in accordance with GAAP as of the Effective Time (the “Proposed Final Balance Sheet”), (ii) a reasonably detailed calculation of the proposed final Working Capital as of the Effective Time based on the Proposed Final Balance Sheet prepared in accordance with the methodology set forth on Schedule 2.03 (the “Proposed Final Working Capital Calculation”), and (iii) based on such Proposed Final Balance Sheet and Proposed Final Working Capital Calculation, a calculation of the Final Working Capital Deficit, if any, or the Final Working Capital Surplus, if any ((i), (ii) and (iii) together, the “Calculation Statement”). Buyer shall provide Seller reasonable access to the records (including the work papers and other accounting documents of the Company and its independent accountants and auditors related to periods on or prior to the Closing Date) and personnel involved in the preparation of the Closing Statement in order to review and confirm the accuracy of the Proposed Final Working Capital Calculation.

(b)If Seller disagrees in whole or in part with the Closing Statement, then within thirty (30) days after receipt of the Closing Statement, Seller shall notify Buyer of such disagreement in writing (the “Notice of Disagreement”), setting forth in reasonable detail the particulars of any such disagreement and disputed items. The Notice of Disagreement shall include a copy of the Closing Statement indicating the line items that are in dispute (the “Disputed Line Items”) and shall be accompanied by Seller’s revised determination of the Proposed Working Capital Calculation. If Seller does not provide a Notice of Disagreement within such thirty (30) day period, then Seller shall be deemed to have accepted in full the Closing Statement as prepared by Buyer, which shall be final, binding and conclusive for all purposes hereunder. If any Notice of Disagreement is timely provided and contains the proper information, then Buyer and Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts for a period of twenty (20) days (or such longer period as they may mutually agree) to resolve any Disputed Line Items. During such twenty (20) day period, Buyer and Seller shall have access to the working papers, schedules and calculations of the other used in the preparation of the Closing Statement, the Notice of Disagreement, and the Disputed Line Items. If, at the end of such period, Buyer and Seller fail to resolve such Disputed Line Items, then Buyer and Seller shall engage Deloitte LLP or, if Deloitte LLP is unwilling or unable to serve in such capacity, another independent accounting firm selected by the mutual agreement of Buyer and Seller to resolve such Disputed Line Items (the “Settlement Accountants”). Buyer and Seller will enter into reasonable and customary arrangements for the services to be rendered by the Settlement Accountants under this Section 2.04. The Settlement Accountants shall determine as promptly as practicable (and in any event within forty-five (45) days from the date that the dispute is submitted to it), whether the Closing Statement was prepared in accordance with the standards set forth in this Agreement and to what extent (if any) the Proposed Working Capital Calculation requires adjustment as a result of a Disputed Line Items. The Settlement Accountants shall resolve each Disputed Line Item by calculating such Disputed Line Item in accordance with this Agreement (for each such Disputed Line Item, the amount so calculated is referred to as the “SA Determined Amount”) and establishing as the final amount of such Disputed Line Item the applicable SA Determined Amount; provided, that the SA Determined Amount for each Disputed Line Item may not be greater than the highest amount proposed by Buyer and Seller nor




less than the lowest amount proposed by Buyer and Seller. Buyer and Seller shall each furnish to the Settlement Accountants such work papers and other documents and information relating to the disputed issues, and shall provide interviews and answer questions, as such Settlement Accountants may reasonably request. The determination of the Settlement Accountants shall be final, conclusive and binding on the parties hereto absent manifest error. Judgment may be entered on the decision of the Settlement Accountants in any court of competent jurisdiction. The Proposed Final Working Capital Calculation (i) in the form agreed to by Buyer and Seller as final, (ii) in the form deemed final as provided in the third sentence of this Section 2.04(b), or (iii) as revised, if necessary, to reflect the final determination by the Settlement Accountant, is referred to herein as the “Final Working Capital Calculation,” the final Working Capital of the Company calculated pursuant thereto is referred to herein as the “Final Working Capital” and the final balance sheet of the Company as of the Effective Time calculated pursuant thereto are collectively referred to herein as the “Final Balance Sheet.”

(c)The fees and expenses of the Settlement Accountants pursuant to this Section 2.04 shall be apportioned between Buyer and Seller based on the dollar amount in dispute and inversely related to the relative recovery, as determined by the Settlement Accountants. For example, if the aggregate dollar amount of the Disputed Line Items is $1,000,000 and the relative recovery of Seller and Buyer as determined by the Settlement Accountants is $900,000 and $100,000, respectively, then Buyer will be apportioned ninety percent (90%) and Seller will be apportioned ten percent (10%) of the Settlement Accountants’ fees.

(d)If the Final Working Capital Calculation reflects a Final Working Capital Deficit, then Seller shall pay to Buyer, in cash, the amount of the Final Working Capital Deficit within three (3) Business Days after determination of the Final Working Capital Calculation. If the Final Working Capital Calculation reflects a Final Working Capital Surplus, then Buyer shall pay to Seller, in cash, the amount of the Final Working Capital Surplus within three (3) Business Days after determination of the Final Working Capital Calculation.

(e)Any payment required to be made pursuant to Section 2.04(d) shall be made by Buyer or Seller, as the case may be, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in writing by Buyer, if there is a Final Working Capital Deficit, or Seller, if there is an Final Working Capital Surplus, at least one (1) Business Day prior to such transfer. The amount of any such payment shall bear interest at a rate of 8% per annum from the date the Final Working Capital is due to be paid under Section 2.04(d) to, but excluding, the date of payment. Such interest shall be calculated daily on the basis of a year of 365 days and the actual number of days elapsed, without compounding.

(f)The provisions of this Agreement shall apply in such a manner so as not to give the components and calculations duplicative effect to any item of adjustment, and no amount shall be (or is intended to be) included, in whole or in part (either as an increase or reduction), more than once in the calculation of (including any component of) Working Capital, Estimated Working Capital, Final Working Capital, Losses, or any other calculated amount pursuant to this Agreement.

(g)Any rights accruing to a party under this Section 2.04 shall be in addition to and independent of the rights to indemnification under Article VII and any payments made to any party under this Section 2.04 shall not be subject to the terms of Article VII.

(h)Any payments made pursuant to this Section 2.04 shall be treated as an adjustment to the Purchase Price by the parties for Tax purposes, unless otherwise required by Law.





Section 2.05Transactions to be Effected at the Closing.
 
(a)At the Closing, Buyer shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to Seller:

(i)the Cash Consideration by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in writing by Seller to Buyer no later than two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date; and

(ii)all other agreements, documents, instruments or certificates required to be delivered by Buyer at or prior to the Closing pursuant to Section 6.03 of this Agreement.

(b)At the Closing, Seller shall deliver to Buyer:

(i)stock certificates evidencing the Shares, free and clear of all Encumbrances, duly endorsed in blank or accompanied by stock powers or other instruments of transfer duly executed in blank, with all required stock transfer tax stamps affixed thereto; and

(ii)all other agreements, documents, instruments or certificates required to be delivered by Seller at or prior to the Closing pursuant to Section 6.02 of this Agreement.
Section 2.06Closing. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the purchase and sale of the Shares contemplated hereby shall take place at a closing (the “Closing”) to be held at 10:00 a.m., Dallas, Texas time, on the later of January 2, 2019 or the date that is three (3) Business Days after the last of the conditions to Closing set forth in ARTICLE VI have been satisfied or waived (other than conditions which, by their nature, are to be satisfied on the Closing Date), at the offices of Clark Hill Strasburger, 901 Main Street, Suite 6000, Dallas, Texas 75202, or at such other time or on such other date or at such other place as Seller and Buyer may mutually agree upon in writing (the day on which the Closing takes place being the “Closing Date”), to be effective as of 12:01 a.m. on January 1, 2019 (the “Effective Time”).

Section 2.07Earn-out Payments.

(a)On the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 2.07, as additional consideration and purchase price for the purchase of the Shares, at such times as provided in Section 2.07(d), Buyer shall pay to Seller with respect to each Calculation Period within the Earn-out Period, an amount, if any (each, an “Earn-out Payment”), by which the EBITDA for such Calculation Period exceeds the EBITDA Threshold; provided, that, in no event shall Buyer be obligated to pay Seller an aggregate Earn-out Payment in excess of $3,333,334 for any Calculation Period or to pay aggregate Earn-out Payments in excess of $10,000,000 for the Earn-out Period and, provided further, such obligations to make any Earn-out Payment shall be deferred during such time as such payment is prohibited by any existing loan or credit agreement (or amendment or replacement thereof) with a bona fide third party lender who is not an Affiliate of Buyer which agreement is binding on Buyer or any of its Affiliates. If the EBITDA for a particular Calculation Period does not exceed the EBITDA Threshold, no Earn-out Payment shall be due for such Calculation Period.

(b)Procedures Applicable to Determination of the Earn-out Payments.

(i)Not later than thirty (30) calendar days following completion of audited financial statements for the Company and its subsidiaries to be prepared in accordance with GAAP consistently applied with past practices for the Calculation Period (each such date, an




Earn-out Calculation Delivery Date”), Buyer shall prepare and deliver to Seller a written statement (in each case, an “Earn-out Calculation Statement”) setting forth in reasonable detail its determination of EBITDA for the applicable Calculation Period (as determined from such audited financial statements) and its calculation of the resulting Earn-out Payment (in each case, an “Earn-out Calculation”). Buyer shall use commercially reasonably efforts to cause its financial statements to be prepared within 120 days after the end of each Calculation Period.

(ii)Seller shall have thirty (30) calendar days after receipt of the Earn-out Calculation Statement for each Calculation Period (in each case, the “Review Period”) to review the Earn-out Calculation Statement and the Earn-out Calculation set forth therein. During the Review Period, Buyer shall: (A) permit Seller and its Representatives reasonable access to such records, work papers and other materials of Buyer and the Company relating to the preparation of each Earn-out Calculation Statement as may be reasonably necessary or desirable to permit Seller to review in detail the manner in which each Earn-out Calculation Statement was prepared; and (B) provide Seller and its Representatives, upon at least 24 hours prior advance notice and during normal business hours, with the opportunity to question Buyer’s employees regarding the preparation of the Earn-out Calculation Statement and the calculation of the Earn-out Payment. Prior to the expiration of the Review Period, Seller may object to the Earn-out Calculation set forth in the Earn-out Calculation Statement for the applicable Calculation Period by delivering a written notice of objection (an “Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice”) to Buyer. Any Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice shall specify the items in the applicable Earn-out Calculation disputed by Seller and shall describe in reasonable detail the basis for such objection, as well as the amount in dispute. If Seller fails to deliver an Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice to Buyer prior to the expiration of the Review Period, then the Earn-out Calculation set forth in the Earn-out Calculation Statement shall be final and binding on the parties hereto. If Seller timely delivers an Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice, Buyer and Seller shall negotiate in good faith to resolve the disputed items and agree upon the resulting amount of the EBITDA and the Earn-out Payment for the applicable Calculation Period. If Buyer and Seller are unable to reach agreement within 30 calendar days after such an Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice has been given, all unresolved disputed items shall be promptly referred to the Settlement Accountants. The Settlement Accountants shall be directed to render a written report on the unresolved disputed items with respect to the applicable Earn-out Calculation as promptly as practicable, but in no event greater than 30 calendar days after such submission to the Settlement Accountants, and to resolve only those unresolved disputed items set forth in the Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice. If unresolved disputed items are submitted to the Settlement Accountants, Buyer and Seller shall each furnish to the Settlement Accountants such work papers, schedules and other documents and information relating to the unresolved disputed items as the Settlement Accountants may reasonably request. The Settlement Accountants shall resolve the disputed items based solely on the applicable definitions and other terms in this Agreement and the presentations by Buyer and Seller, and not by independent review. The resolution of the dispute and the calculation of EBITDA and the Earn-out Payment that is the subject of the applicable Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice by the Settlement Accountants shall be final and binding on the parties hereto. The fees and expenses of the Settlement Accountants shall be apportioned between Buyer and Seller based upon the dollar amount in dispute and inversely related to the relative recovery, as determined by the Settlement Accountants, in the same manner as provided in Section 2.04(c).





(c)Buyer’s obligation to pay each of the Earn-out Payments to Seller in accordance with Section 2.07(a) is an independent obligation of Buyer and is not otherwise conditioned or contingent upon the satisfaction of any conditions precedent to any preceding or subsequent Earn-out Payment, and the obligation to pay an Earn-out Payment to Seller shall not obligate Buyer to pay any preceding or subsequent Earn-out Payment. For the avoidance of doubt and by way of example, if the conditions precedent to the payment of the Earn-out Payment for the first Calculation Period are not satisfied, but the conditions precedent to the payment of the Earn-out Payment for the second Calculation Period are satisfied, then Buyer would be obligated to pay such Earn-out Payment for the second Calculation Period for which the corresponding conditions precedent have been satisfied, and not the Earn-out Payment for the first Calculation Period.

(d)Any Earn-out Payment that Buyer is required to pay pursuant to Section 2.07(a) hereof shall be paid in full no later than ten (10) days following the date upon which the determination of EBITDA and the Earn-out Payment for the applicable Calculation Period becomes final and binding upon the parties as provided in Section 2.07(b)(ii) (including any final resolution of any dispute raised by Seller in an Earn-out Calculation Objection Notice). Buyer shall pay to Seller the applicable Earn-out Payment in cash by wire transfer of immediately available funds to a bank account designated writing by Seller. Such amount shall bear interest at a rate equal to 8% per annum from the date that Earn-out Payment is due to be paid under this Section 2.07 to, but excluding, the date of payment. Such interest shall be calculated daily on the basis of a year of 365 days and the actual number of days elapsed, without compounding.

(e)Subject to the terms of this Agreement, subsequent to the Closing, Buyer shall have sole discretion with regard to all matters relating to the operation of the Company and shall have no obligation to operate the Company to achieve any Earn-out Payment. Buyer shall not take any actions solely or primarily for purposes of avoiding or reducing any Earn-out Payment.

(f)The parties hereto understand and agree that (i) the contingent rights to receive any Earn-out Payment shall not be represented by any form of certificate or other instrument, and do not constitute an equity or ownership interest in Buyer or the Company, (ii) Seller shall not have any rights as a security holder of Buyer or the Company as a result of Seller’s contingent right to receive any Earn-out Payment hereunder, and (iii) no interest is payable with respect to any Earn-out Payment, except as provided pursuant to Section 2.07.

Section 7.02    Indemnification By Seller. Solely for the purpose of indemnification under this Section 7.02, the representations and warranties of Seller in this Agreement shall be deemed to have been made without regard to any materiality or Material Adverse Effect qualifiers. Subject to the other terms and conditions of this ARTICLE VII, from and after the Closing, but only with respect to matters before the Effective Time, Seller shall indemnify Buyer, the Company and each of their officers, directors, managers, employees, Affiliates, successors and permitted assigns (collectively, the “Buyer Indemnified Parties”) against, and shall hold each of them harmless from and against, any and all Losses incurred or sustained by, or imposed upon, a Buyer Indemnified Party based upon, arising out of, with respect to or by reason of:

(a)any inaccuracy in or breach of any of the representations or warranties of Seller contained in this Agreement;

(b)any breach or non-fulfillment of any covenant, agreement or obligation to be performed by Seller pursuant to this Agreement; or

(c)(i) any Taxes that are imposed on the Company (or for which the Company is liable) with respect to (A) any taxable period ending on or before the Effective Time, or (B) the pre-Effective Time portion of any Straddle Period, (ii) any Taxes of any Person imposed on the Company as a transferee or successor, by contract or pursuant to any Law, or for any other reason, which Taxes relate to an event or transaction occurring on or before the Effective Time, and (iii) any Taxes arising out of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement to the extent the Liability for such Taxes is not taken into account in the determination of Final Working Capital.

Section 7.03    Indemnification By Buyer. Solely for the purpose of indemnification under this Section 7.03, the representations and warranties of Buyer in this Agreement shall be deemed to have been made without regard to any materiality or Material Adverse Effect qualifiers. Subject to the other terms and conditions of this ARTICLE VII, from and after the Closing, but with respect to all matters after the Effective Time, Buyer shall indemnify Seller and each of its officers, directors, managers, employees, Affiliates, successors and permitted assigns (the “Seller Indemnified Parties”) against, and shall hold each of them harmless from and against, any and all Losses incurred or sustained by, or imposed upon, a Seller Indemnified Party based upon, arising out of, with respect to or by reason of:





(a)any inaccuracy in or breach of any of the representations or warranties of Buyer contained in this Agreement; or

(b)any breach or non-fulfillment of any covenant, agreement or obligation to be performed by Buyer pursuant to this Agreement.

Section 7.04    Certain Limitations. The party making a claim under this ARTICLE VII is referred to as the “Indemnified Party”, and the party against whom such claims are asserted under this ARTICLE VII is referred to as the “Indemnifying Party”. The indemnification provided for in Section 7.02 and Section 7.03 shall be subject to the following limitations:

(a)The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable to the Indemnified Party for indemnification under Section 7.02(a) or Section 7.03(a), as the case may be, until the aggregate amount of all Losses in respect of indemnification under Section 7.02(a) or Section 7.03(a) exceeds $1,350,000 (the “Deductible”), in which event the Indemnifying Party shall only be required to pay or be liable for Losses in excess of the Deductible. With respect to any claim as to which the Indemnified Party may be entitled to indemnification under Section 7.02(a) or Section 7.03(a), as the case may be, the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any individual or series of related Losses which do not exceed $75,000 (which Losses shall not be counted toward the Deductible). The Deductible and the exclusion of Losses which do not exceed $75,000 shall not apply to matters described in Sections 3.02, 3.03, 3.18 or 4.01.

(b)The aggregate amount of all Losses for which an Indemnifying Party shall be liable pursuant to Section 7.02(a) or Section 7.03(a) as the case may be, shall not exceed $13,500,000, provided, however, that such limitation shall not apply to any breaches asserted with respect to Sections 3.02, 3.03, 3.18 or 4.01, in which case the maximum indemnification liability of Seller, on the one hand, and Buyer, on the other hand, shall not exceed the Purchase Price.

(c)Payments by an Indemnifying Party pursuant to Section 7.02 or Section 7.03 in respect of any Loss shall be limited to the amount of any liability or damage that remains after deducting therefrom any insurance proceeds and any indemnity, contribution or other similar payment actually received by the Indemnified Party (or the Company) in respect of any such claim (provided that such Losses shall include any costs associated with such insurance or other recovery, the amount of any deductible and any resulting increase in premiums therefrom). The Indemnified Party shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to recover under insurance policies covering any portion of Losses to be reimbursed by an Indemnifying Party or shall assign any rights to pursue any claims against a third-party to the Indemnifying Party.

(d)Payments by an Indemnifying Party pursuant to Section 7.02 or Section 7.03 in respect of any Loss shall be reduced by an amount equal to any Tax benefit actually realized in the year of such Loss or in the year immediately subsequent to the year of such Loss (in the form of a cash Tax refund or a Tax deduction reducing cash Taxes otherwise due and payable, in each case with respect to the Tax Return for the year in which such Loss was incurred or in the year immediately subsequent to the year in which such Loss was incurred by the Indemnified Party and its Affiliates arising from the incurrence or payment of the underlying obligations relating to such indemnity payment).

(e)In no event shall any Indemnifying Party be liable to any Indemnified Party for any punitive, incidental, consequential, special or indirect damages, including loss of future revenue or




income, loss of business reputation or opportunity relating to the breach or alleged breach of this Agreement, or diminution of value or any damages based on any type of multiple (other than indemnification for amounts paid or payable to third parties in respect of any Third-Party Claim for which indemnification hereunder is otherwise required).

(f)Each Indemnified Party shall take, and cause its Affiliates to take, all reasonable steps to mitigate any Loss upon becoming aware of any event or circumstance that would be reasonably expected to, or does, give rise thereto, including incurring costs only to the minimum extent necessary to remedy the breach that gives rise to such Loss.

(g)The right to indemnification in accordance with the provisions of this Article VIII will not be affected by any investigation conducted with respect to, or any knowledge acquired (or capable of being acquired) at any time, whether before or after the Closing Date, with respect to the accuracy or inaccuracy of or compliance with, any representation, warranty, covenant or obligation set forth in this Agreement.

Section 7.05    Indemnification Procedures

(a)Third-Party Claims. If any Indemnified Party receives notice of the assertion or commencement of any action, suit, claim or other legal proceeding made or brought by any Person who is not a party to this Agreement or an Affiliate of a party to this Agreement or a Representative of the foregoing (a “Third-Party Claim”) against such Indemnified Party with respect to which the Indemnifying Party is obligated to provide indemnification under this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party prompt written notice thereof. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that such failure materially prejudices the Indemnifying Party hereunder. Such notice by the Indemnified Party shall describe the Third-Party Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to participate in, or by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party, to assume the defense of any Third-Party Claim at the Indemnifying Party’s expense and by the Indemnifying Party’s own counsel, and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate in good faith in such defense. In the event that the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of any Third-Party Claim, subject to Section 7.05(b), it shall have the right to take such action as it deems necessary to avoid, dispute, defend, appeal or make counterclaims pertaining to any such Third-Party Claim in the name and on behalf of the Indemnified Party. The Indemnified Party shall have the right, at its own cost and expense, to participate in the defense of any Third-Party Claim with counsel selected by it subject to the Indemnifying Party’s right to control the defense thereof; provided, however, that if the Indemnified Party reasonably believes that counsel for the Indemnifying Party cannot represent both the Indemnitee and the Indemnifying Party in the defense of the Third-Party Claim because such representation would be reasonably likely to result in a conflict of interest between the parties, then the Indemnifying Party shall have the right to defend, at the sole cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, such action by all appropriate proceedings. If the Indemnifying Party elects not to compromise or defend such Third-Party Claim or fails to promptly notify the Indemnified Party in writing of its election to defend as provided in this Agreement or if the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Party may, subject to Section 7.05(b), pay, compromise, defend such Third-Party Claim and seek indemnification for any and all Losses based upon, arising from or relating to such Third-Party Claim. Seller and Buyer shall cooperate with each other in all reasonable respects in connection with the defense of any Third-Party Claim, including making




available (subject to the provisions of Section 5.05) records relating to such Third-Party Claim and furnishing, without expense (other than reimbursement of actual out-of-pocket expenses) to the defending party, management employees of the non-defending party as may be reasonably necessary for the preparation of the defense of such Third-Party Claim.

(b)Settlement of Third-Party Claims. The Indemnifying Party shall not enter into settlement of any Third-Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), except as provided in this Section 7.05(b). If a firm offer is made to settle a Third-Party Claim without leading to liability or the creation of a financial or other obligation on the part of the Indemnified Party and provides, in customary form, for the unconditional release of each Indemnified Party from all liabilities and obligations in connection with such Third-Party Claim and the Indemnifying Party desires to accept and agree to such offer, the Indemnifying Party shall give written notice to that effect to the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnified Party fails to consent to such firm offer within ten (10) days after its receipt of such notice, the Indemnified Party may continue to contest or defend such Third-Party Claim and in such event, the maximum liability of the Indemnifying Party as to such Third-Party Claim shall not exceed the amount of such settlement offer. If the Indemnified Party fails to consent to such firm offer and also fails to assume defense of such Third-Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party may settle the Third-Party Claim upon the terms set forth in such firm offer to settle such Third-Party Claim. If the Indemnified Party has assumed the defense pursuant to Section 7.05(a), it shall not agree to any settlement without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).

(c)Direct Claims. Any claim by an Indemnified Party on account of a Loss which does not result from a Third-Party Claim (a “Direct Claim”) shall be asserted by the Indemnified Party giving the Indemnifying Party prompt written notice thereof. The failure to give such prompt written notice shall not, however, relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations, except and only to the extent that such failure materially prejudices the Indemnifying Party hereunder. Such notice by the Indemnified Party shall describe the Direct Claim in reasonable detail, shall include copies of all material written evidence thereof and shall indicate the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Loss that has been or may be sustained by the Indemnified Party. The Indemnifying Party shall have ten (10) days after its receipt of such notice to respond in writing to such Direct Claim. During such ten-day period, the Indemnified Party shall allow the Indemnifying Party and its professional advisors to investigate the matter or circumstance alleged to give rise to the Direct Claim, and whether and to what extent any amount is payable in respect of the Direct Claim and the Indemnified Party shall assist the Indemnifying Party’s investigation by giving such information and assistance (including access to the Company’s premises and personnel and the right to examine and copy any accounts, documents or records) as the Indemnifying Party or any of its professional advisors may reasonably request. If the Indemnifying Party does not so respond within such ten-day period, the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have rejected such claim, in which case the Indemnified Party shall be free to pursue such remedies as may be available to the Indemnified Party on the terms and subject to the provisions of this Agreement.

Section 7.06    Tax Treatment of Indemnification Payments. All indemnification payments made under this Agreement shall be treated by the parties as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for Tax purposes, unless otherwise required by Law.

Section 7.07    Exclusive Remedies and Right of Offset. Subject to Section 9.11, the parties acknowledge and agree that their sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any and all claims (other than




claims arising from intentional fraud or willful misconduct on the part of a party hereto in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) for any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation set forth herein or otherwise relating to the subject matter of this Agreement, shall be pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in this ARTICLE VII. Seller hereby grants Buyer the express right to offset, at Buyer’s election, against any Earn-out Payment that has been earned and is then due and payable, any and all amounts due to Buyer under this ARTICLE VII or otherwise under this Agreement, that has actually been established as owed to Buyer by (i) agreement of the parties, (ii) failure of a party to dispute a claim within the applicable time period set forth in this Agreement or (iii) a final and non-appealable verdict. In furtherance of the foregoing, each party hereby waives, to the fullest extent permitted under Law, any and all rights, claims and causes of action for any breach of any representation, warranty, covenant, agreement or obligation set forth herein or otherwise relating to the subject matter of this Agreement it may have against the other parties hereto and their Affiliates and each of their respective Representatives arising under or based upon any Law, except pursuant to the indemnification provisions set forth in this ARTICLE VII. Nothing in this Section 7.07 shall limit any Person’s right to seek and obtain any equitable relief to which any Person shall be entitled pursuant to Section 9.11 or to seek any remedy on account of intentional fraud or willful misconduct by any party hereto.

(ii)any of the conditions set forth in Section 6.01 or Section 6.03 shall not have been fulfilled by the Drop Dead Date, unless such failure shall be due to the failure of Seller to perform or comply with any of the covenants, agreements or conditions hereof to be performed or complied with by it prior to the Closing; or

MARTIN MIDSTREAM PARTNERS REPORTS
2018 THIRD QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS

Third Quarter Net Income of $39.4 Million including $48.6 Million Gain from Sale of Interest in WTLPG
Agreement to Acquire Martin Transport, Inc. for $135.0 Million Plus a Potential $10.0 Million Earn-Out
Acquisition is Expected to Strengthen Distribution Coverage Ratio
Management Reiterates Support for Current Distribution Level

KILGORE, Texas, October 24, 2018 (GlobeNewswire) -- Martin Midstream Partners L.P. (Nasdaq: MMLP) (the "Partnership") announced today its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Ruben Martin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Martin Midstream GP LLC, the general partner of the Partnership said, “I am excited to announce the Partnership has reached an agreement with Martin Resource Management Corporation (“MRMC”) to acquire Martin Transport, Inc. (“MTI”) for $135.0 million plus a potential additional $10.0 million earn-out based on a performance threshold. The price reflects an EBITDA multiple between 5.7 times and 6.0 times based on MTI's forecasted 2019 net income of $9.3 million and EBITDA of $23.6 million. This acquisition will be funded from the Partnership’s revolving credit facility allowing it to redeploy much of the $193.7 million in net proceeds received when we sold our interest in the West Texas LPG Pipeline Limited Partnership (“WTLPG”) on July 31, 2018. Despite redeploying capital of only 70% of the net proceeds received for the WTLPG interest, the acquisition is estimated to generate roughly $16.0 million of additional incremental EBITDA in 2019 over the average historical cash flows received from WTLPG.

“MTI transports petroleum products, liquid petroleum gas, chemicals, sulfur and other products, as well as owns twenty-three terminals located throughout the Gulf Coast and Midwest. MRMC has owned and operated MTI or its predecessor for over 40 years and is integral to MMLP’s routine movements of sulfur and NGL’s. Based on operational estimates and current transportation market conditions, this acquisition from our general partner will provide strategic long-term growth for the Partnership.

“In the first twelve months of operation, the acquisition is expected to contribute approximately $23.6 million and $14.7 million of EBITDA and distributable cash flow, respectively, to the Partnership. This will drive our estimated distribution coverage ratio to approximately 1.20 times by year-end 2019, which forms the basis for management's continued support of the current distribution level. Further, due to continued rising line haul rates combined with MTI’s available truck capacity, we estimate, net income, EBITDA and distributable cash flow attributable to MTI to grow to approximately $17.0 million, $33.2 million and $20.9 million, respectively, for the year of 2022. In addition, this drop down will provide stability in our quarterly cash flows to offset the seasonal nature of our fertilizer and butane businesses. We expect this transaction to close in January of 2019.
 
“For the twelve months ended September 30, 2018 our proforma distribution coverage ratio was 1.04 times when taking into effect the WTLPG sale. Historically the third quarter is our weakest due to seasonal timing in the fertilizer and natural gas liquids businesses which is reflected in our guidance. Further, for the third quarter of 2018 our distributable cash flow fell short of guidance due to compressed margins from rising fertilizer raw materials costs and the sale of WTLPG, slightly offset by lower than forecasted maintenance capital expenditures coupled with continued outperformance in our Marine Transportation segment due to improved day rates and fleet utilization.

“As expected during the third quarter, our debt level rose due to the seasonal butane inventory build in our Natural Gas Services segment. Anticipating this annual occurrence, the Partnership amended its revolving credit facility in February of 2018 to include an inventory financing sublimit tranche related to eligible inventory volumes that are under sales or swap contracts when calculating consolidated funded debt. Accordingly, the Partnership’s calculated leverage ratio of 4.29 times includes a $74.0 million reduction of consolidated funded debt under this provision. Further, the applicable interest rate under our credit facility is reduced twenty-five basis points due to obtaining a leverage ratio under 4.50 times.






“Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, our butane optimization business will begin capturing cash flows from forward sales, the marine transportation division looks to continue improved performance relative to guidance, and the beginning of seasonal demand for fertilizer products should all provide cash flow strength. Added together with anticipated lower than forecasted maintenance capital expenditures, our distribution coverage ratio will rebound, as it historically does, in the fourth quarter. However, due to market weakness that has affected fertilizer margins throughout 2018, at this time we are lowering our estimate to approximately 0.90 times at year end 2018.”

The Partnership had a net loss from continuing operations for the third quarter 2018 of $9.7 million, a loss of $0.24 per limited partner unit. The Partnership had a net loss from continuing operations for the third quarter 2017 of $17.0 million, a loss of $0.44 per limited partner unit. The Partnership's adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the third quarter 2018 was $25.4 million compared to adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the third quarter 2017 of $25.5 million.

The Partnership had a net loss from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 of $6.7 million, a loss of $0.17 per limited partner unit. The Partnership had a net loss from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 of $4.1 million, a loss of $0.10 per limited partner unit. The Partnership's adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $96.8 million compared to adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 of $102.9 million.

The Partnership's distributable cash flow from continuing operations for the third quarter 2018 was $6.9 million compared to distributable cash flow from continuing operations for the third quarter 2017 of $8.3 million.

The Partnership's distributable cash flow from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $41.6 million compared to distributable cash flow from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 of $55.8 million.

On July 31, 2018, the Partnership divested of its 20 percent non-operating interest in West Texas LPG Pipeline L.P. ("WTLPG") for net proceeds of $193.7 million after fees and expenses. The Partnership recorded a gain on the disposition of $48.6 million. The Partnership has presented the results of operations and cash flows relating to its investment in WTLPG as discontinued operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017.

The Partnership had net income from discontinued operations for the three months ended September 30, 2018 of $49.1 million, or $1.24 per limited partner unit.

Forward-Looking Statements
 
Statements about the Partnership's outlook and all other statements in this release other than historical facts are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements and all references to financial estimates rely on a number of assumptions concerning future events and are subject to a number of uncertainties and other factors, many of which are outside the





Partnership's control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from such statements. While the Partnership believes that the assumptions concerning future events are reasonable, it cautions that there are inherent difficulties in anticipating or predicting certain important factors. A discussion of these factors, including risks and uncertainties, is set forth in the Partnership's annual and quarterly reports filed from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Partnership disclaims any intention or obligation to revise any forward-looking statements, including financial estimates, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise except where required to do so by law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
  
The Partnership's management uses a variety of financial and operational measurements other than its financial statements prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") to analyze its performance. These include: (1) net income before interest expense, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), (2) adjusted EBITDA and (3) distributable cash flow. The Partnership's management views these measures as important performance measures of core profitability for its operations and the ability to generate and distribute cash flow, and as key components of its internal financial reporting. The Partnership's management believes investors benefit from having access to the same financial measures that management uses.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. Certain items excluded from EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing an entity's financial performance, such as cost of capital and historical costs of depreciable assets. The Partnership has included information concerning EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA because it provides investors and management with additional information to better understand the following: financial performance of the Partnership's assets without regard to financing methods, capital structure or historical cost basis; the Partnership's operating performance and return on capital as compared to those of other similarly situated entities; and the viability of acquisitions and capital expenditure projects. The Partnership's method of computing adjusted EBITDA may not be the same method used to compute similar measures reported by other entities. The economic substance behind the Partnership's use of adjusted EBITDA is to measure the ability of the Partnership's assets to generate cash sufficient to pay interest costs, support its indebtedness and make distributions to its unitholders.

Distributable Cash Flow. Distributable cash flow is a significant performance measure used by the Partnership's management and by external users of its financial statements, such as investors, commercial banks and research analysts, to compare basic cash flows generated by the Partnership to the cash distributions it expects to pay unitholders. Distributable cash flow is also an important financial measure for the Partnership's unitholders since it serves as an indicator of the Partnership's success in providing a cash return on investment. Specifically, this financial measure indicates to investors whether or not the Partnership is generating cash flow at a level that can sustain or support an increase in its quarterly distribution rates. Distributable cash flow is also a quantitative standard used throughout the investment community with respect to publicly-traded partnerships because the value of a unit of such an entity is generally determined by the unit's yield, which in turn is based on the amount of cash distributions the entity pays to a unitholder.

EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and distributable cash flow should not be considered alternatives to, or more meaningful than, net income, cash flows from operating activities, or any other measure presented in accordance with GAAP. The Partnership's method of computing these measures may not be the same method used to compute similar measures reported by other entities.
