18.If any terms of the above provisions of this Agreement are found null, void or inoperative, for any reason, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.

Notwithstanding anything set forth to the contrary in this Agreement, should any of the provision(s) of this Agreement be found null and void such that Mr. Isett would not be provided with any of the consideration set forth in Sections 4, 5, 6 and 7 of this Agreement, Mr. Isett shall be expressly entitled, at his sole discretion, to (i) accept the Agreement such that it would otherwise continue in full force and effect, (ii) seek and accept a mutually agreed-to modification of the Agreement going forward, (iii) declare the Agreement null and void for lack of consideration or (iv) rescind the agreement as a result of a mutual mistake of law (in that the Agreement, including all of its terms – obligations and consideration – was believed to be and reflect a fully valid and enforceable agreement and meeting of the minds between the Parties and they both entered into the agreement in reliance upon that understanding).
19.Mr. Isett understands that he has twenty-one (21) days from the date of his receipt of this Agreement, which was November 10, 2022, to consider his decision to sign it, and that he may unilaterally waive this period at his election. Mr. Isett’s signature on this Agreement constitutes an express waiver of the twenty-one (21) day period if affixed prior to the expiration of that period.

20.Mr. Isett acknowledges that he may revoke this Agreement only as it pertains to claims under the ADEA for up to and including seven (7) days after his execution of this Agreement, and that the aspects of this Agreement regarding his release of claims under the ADEA shall not become effective until the expiration of seven (7) days from the date of his execution of this Agreement. This provision regarding revocation shall have no effect on the validity and enforceability of any other term, condition or provision of this Agreement, which
becomes effective when signed. In the event that Mr. Isett revokes this Agreement as it pertains to claims under the ADEA before the Company makes the monetary payments described in this Agreement, the Parties agree that, in lieu of the payments set forth in this Agreement, the Company will pay and provide all severance and benefits provided for in this Agreement with the sole exception of the addition lump sum payment equal to 6-months of the COBRA benefits the Company had most recently paid to Mr. Isett over the prior eighteen (18) months, as provided for in Section 7 of this Agreement, the adequacy of which is hereby acknowledged. Mr. Isett accordingly agrees that, in the event he revokes this Agreement as it pertains to claims under the ADEA, all other provisions of this Agreement are independently supported by adequate consideration and are fully enforceable subject to the express provisions set forth in Section 18 of this Agreement. Mr. Isett expressly agrees that, in order to be effective, his revocation pursuant to this Section must be in writing and must actually be received by Marc Banjak, at firstname.lastname@example.org, on or before the seventh day following his execution of this Agreement.
21.The Parties agree that, to the extent that any provision of this Agreement is determined to be in violation of the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (“OWBPA”), it should be severed from the Agreement or modified to comply with the OWBPA, without affecting the validity or enforceability of any of the other terms or provisions of the Agreement, subject to the express provisions set forth in Section 18 of this Agreement.

Amounts payable to Mr. Isett under the terms of this Agreement during the first six months following his separation from service will not exceed $610,000.

other than as provided for herein, he is not owed any wages by the Company for work performed, whether as wages or salary, overtime, bonuses or commissions, or for accrued but unused paid time off, and that Mr. Isett has been fully compensated for all hours worked; (f) he has reported any violations known to him of the Company’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the “Code”) or of any law by the Company or any Company employee or agent, as required by the Code (g) that Mr. Isett is not aware of any factual basis for a claim that the Company has defrauded the government of the United States or of any State; (h) that Mr. Isett has incurred no work-related injuries; and (i) that Mr. Isett has received all family or medical leave to which he was entitled under the law.

25.Mr. Isett agrees to resign as an officer and CEO of the company, and to relinquish such duties and rights commensurate with being an officer and CEO of the Company, as of the Effective Date of this Agreement. Ms. Isett further resigns from any and all other positions held arising from or as a result of his being an officer and CEO of the Company as of the Effective Date of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the above, nor anything to the contrary provided herein, and consistent with the terms of this Agreement, the Parties agree and acknowledge that with the exception of relinquishing his title, duties and rights as an officer and CEO of the Company, Mr. Isett remains a full-time employee of the Company pursuant to his Employment Agreement and its terms, through and including his Separation Date.

The Parties agree and acknowledge that the language used and representations asserted in Exhibit A are not intended to nor shall they be considered to be part of the terms of this Agreement, such that they shall not be enforceable nor used to enforce any provision of this Agreement other than this Section 27.
28.This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument. An originally executed version of this Agreement that is scanned as an image file (e.g., Adobe PDF, TIF, JPEG, etc.) and then delivered by one party to the other party via electronic mail as evidence of signature, shall, for all
purposes hereof, be deemed an original signature. In addition, an originally executed version of this Agreement that is delivered via facsimile by one party to the other party as evidence of signature shall, for all purposes hereof, be deemed an original.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have duly executed this Agreement as of the day and year first written above.
