SECTION 14. Exculpation and Indemnification.

(a) Exculpation. Neither the Members, the Manager, the directors of the Company, the officers of the Company, their respective affiliates, nor any person who at any time shall serve, or shall have served, as a director, officer, employee or other agent of any such Members, Manager, directors, officers, or affiliates and who, in such capacity, shall engage, or shall have engaged, in activities on behalf of the Company (a “Specified Agent”) shall be liable, in damages or otherwise, to the Company or to any Member for, and neither the Company nor any Member shall take any action against such Members, Manager, directors, officers, affiliates or Specified Agent, in respect of any loss which arises out of any acts or omissions performed or omitted by such person pursuant to the authority granted by this Agreement, or otherwise performed on behalf of the Company, if such Member, Manager, director, officer, affiliate, or Specified Agent, as applicable, in good faith, determined that such course of conduct was in the best interests of the Company and within the scope of authority conferred on such person by this Agreement or approved by the Manager. Each Member shall look solely to the assets of the Company for return of such Member’s investment, and if the property of the Company remaining after the discharge of the debts and liabilities of the Company is insufficient to return such investment, each Member shall have no recourse against the Company, the other Members or their affiliates, except as expressly provided herein; provided, however, that the foregoing shall not relieve any Member or the Manager of any fiduciary duty, duty of care or duty of fair dealing to the Members that it may have hereunder or under applicable law.

(b) Indemnification. In any threatened, pending or completed claim, action, suit or proceeding to which a Member, a Manager, a director of the Company, any officer of the Company, their respective affiliates, or any Specified Agent was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party by reason of the fact that such person is or was engaged in activities on behalf of the Company, including without limitation any action or proceeding brought under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, against a Member, a Manager, a director of the Company, any officer of the Company, their respective affiliates, or any Specified Agent relating to the Company, the Company shall to the fullest extent permitted by law indemnify and hold harmless the Members, Manager, directors of the Company, officers of the Company, their respective affiliates, and any such Specified Agents against losses, damages, expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by or in connection with such claim, action, suit or proceeding; provided, however, that none of the Members, Managers, directors of the Company, officers of the Company, their respective affiliates or any Specified Agent shall be indemnified for actions constituting bad faith, willful misconduct, or fraud. Any act or omission by any such Member, Manager, director, officer, or any such affiliate or Specified Agent, if done in reliance upon the opinion of independent legal counsel or public accountants selected with reasonable care by such Member, Manager, director, officer, or any such affiliate or Specified Agent, as applicable, shall not constitute bad faith, willful misconduct, or fraud on the part of such Member, Manager, director, officer, or any such affiliate or Specified Agent.

(c) No Presumption. The termination of any claim, action, suit or proceeding by judgment, order or settlement shall not, of itself, create a presumption that any act or failure to act by a Member, a Manager, a director of the Company, any officer of the Company, their respective affiliates or any Specified Agent constituted bad faith, willful misconduct or fraud under this Agreement.
