(g) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, nothing in this Agreement shall require Cheetah, New Cheetah or any of their Subsidiaries to take any action that would breach the Comcast Agreement or any agreement entered into in connection therewith.

Section 5.5 Regulatory Approvals.

(a) As soon as practicable after the execution of this Agreement, but in any event no later than thirty (30) calendar days thereafter, A/N and Cheetah shall prepare and file or deliver, or cause to be prepared and filed or delivered, all applications (including FCC Forms 394 or other appropriate forms) and requests required to be filed with or delivered to the FCC or any other Government Entities that are necessary to obtain the consents of such Government Entities in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (the “Required Regulatory Approvals”). The parties shall consult and work together in good faith to develop a consensus plan and strategy with respect to making regulatory filings and obtaining the Required Regulatory Approvals. Cheetah and A/N will cooperate and keep each other apprised with respect thereto as set out in this Section 5.5. In addition, A/N shall cause Bengal to use reasonable best efforts to obtain a renewal or extension of any Bengal Franchise (for a period of at least two (2) years) for which a valid notice of renewal pursuant to the formal renewal procedures established by Section 626 of the Communications Act has not been timely delivered to the appropriate Government Entity. Each party shall promptly file any additional information requested by any Government Entity as soon as practicable after receipt of a request for additional information. The parties shall cooperate fully with each other in all reasonable respects and shall use reasonable best efforts to obtain the Required Regulatory Approvals as promptly as practicable. Each party shall have the right to review and approve in advance, with such approvals not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed, all filings with Government Entities to be made by the other party in connection with the Contribution. Each party shall coordinate and cooperate with one another in exchanging such information and providing such reasonable assistance as may be requested in connection with such filings. Without the prior consent of Cheetah, none of the A/N, Bengal or any of its Subsidiaries shall agree with any Government Entity to extend or to toll the time limits applicable to such Government Entity’s consideration of any FCC Form 394 filed with such Government Entity. Each party shall promptly supply the other with copies of all nonconfidential correspondence, filings or communications (or memoranda setting forth the substance thereof) between such party or its Representatives and any Government Entity or members of their respective staffs with respect to this Agreement or the Contribution. A/N will, to the extent reasonably practicable, notify Cheetah of all meetings, hearings and other discussions before or with Government Entities in connection with the renewal or extension of any Bengal Franchise or Bengal Governmental Authorization relating to a Bengal Franchise or the granting of an LFA Approval with respect to any Bengal Franchise, such that Cheetah’s Representatives can participate to the extent reasonably practicable in such proceedings. No party shall take in bad faith any action that would have the effect of delaying, impairing or impeding the receipt of any Required Regulatory Approvals.

(b) As soon as practicable after the execution of this Agreement, but in any event no later than one (1) Business Day after such execution, A/N and Cheetah shall request in-person meetings with the appropriate representatives of each of the Antitrust Division and the FCC to be held within two (2) Business Days of such request, or as promptly as possible thereafter that such representatives are available to meet, in order that the parties may discuss that such Government Entities provide expedited review of the Contribution and other transactions contemplated by this Agreement and to volunteer to provide to such Government Entities with any materials, white papers or analyses that may accelerate the education of such Government Entities.

(c) Each of A/N and Cheetah shall (i) make or cause to be made all filings required of each of them or any of their Affiliates under the HSR Act or other Antitrust Laws with respect to the Contribution as promptly as practicable and, in any event, within 30 days after the date of this Agreement in the case of all filings required under the HSR Act, (ii) comply at the earliest practicable date with any request under the HSR Act or other Antitrust Laws for additional information, documents, or other materials received by each of them or any of their respective subsidiaries or Affiliates from the FTC, the Antitrust Division or any other Government Antitrust Entity in respect of such filings or the Contribution, and (iii) cooperate with each other in connection with any
