(c) by Purchaser, if a breach of any representation or warranty or failure to perform any covenant or agreement on the part of the Company or New Charter set forth in this Agreement shall have occurred and is not capable of being cured that would cause any of the conditions to Closing set forth in Article VI not to be satisfied (or not to be capable of being satisfied) at the Closing;

(d) By any of Purchaser, New Charter or the Company if there shall be in effect a final non appealable order of a Governmental Entity of competent jurisdiction restraining, enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement; or

These demand registration rights include the right to register shares underlying exchangeable notes or debentures issued in accordance with the Stockholders Agreement.

The aggregate fair market value of any offering required to be registered would be not less than $500 million.
