If, notwithstanding the exercise of their commercially reasonable efforts and compliance with this Section 5.4 and Section 5.5, A/N is unable to obtain one or more of the A/N Consents, A/N shall reasonably cooperate with Cheetah’s efforts to obtain each such A/N Consent for a period of 12 months following the Closing. For the avoidance of doubt, except as otherwise provided in Article VI, none of the parties’ obligations to effect the Closing shall be conditioned on obtaining any A/N Consents or Cheetah Consents.
