Failure of the Corporation to provide such notice to a Disqualified Holder after making reasonable efforts to do so shall not preclude the Corporation from exercising its rights under this ARTICLE XI. In the case of Section 2(a) of this ARTICLE XI, such notice shall specify the number and type of Securities that are required, in the Corporation’s sole discretion, to be disposed of.

If the Corporation gives the notice provided for by the preceding sentence, such notice shall be deemed to constitute a binding agreement on the part of the Corporation to redeem, and on the part of the Person notified to sell, the Securities referred to in such notice in accordance with this ARTICLE XI, unless such Person shall consummate an Alternate Private Transaction in accordance with this ARTICLE XI.
     
  (c) Any notice required or permitted by the provisions of this ARTICLE XI may also be given via electronic communication in compliance with the provisions of the Florida Business Corporation Act, and will be deemed sent upon such electronic transmission.

 

Section 4. No Rights of Disqualified Holders. Commencing on the Notice Date (or such earlier date on which any Gaming Authority serves notice of its determination of unsuitability or disqualification of the Disqualified Holder on the Corporation), the Disqualified Holder shall not be entitled to receive payments of dividends or interest upon any Securities Owned by such Disqualified Holder, or exercise, directly or indirectly, any voting or other rights conferred by the Securities upon the holders thereof.

 

Section 5. Payment of Redemption Price; Effect of Redemption. The Redemption Price may be paid in cash, by unsecured promissory note, or a combination thereof, as required by any applicable Gaming Authority and, if not so required, as the Corporation elects in its sole discretion. If all or any portion of the Redemption Price is to be paid by promissory note, the Corporation shall tender to the Disqualified Holder a promissory note in the principal amount of the Redemption Price, or portion thereof, to be paid thereby, it being understood that in no case shall such promissory note be directly or indirectly convertible into shares of the Corporation’s capital stock. Any promissory note shall contain such terms and conditions as the Board determines necessary or advisable, including without limitation, subordination provisions, to comply with any law or regulation then applicable to the Corporation or any Affiliated Company or to prevent a default under, breach of, event of default under or acceleration of any loan, promissory note, mortgage, indenture, line of credit, or other debt or financing agreement of the Corporation or any Affiliated Company. Subject to the foregoing, the principal amount of the promissory note together with any unpaid interest shall be due and payable no later than the tenth anniversary of delivery of the promissory note and interest on the unpaid principal thereof shall be payable annually in arrears at the rate of 2% per annum. After all of the Subject Shares have been redeemed (either with cash or the issuance of a promissory note as set forth above), such Subject Shares shall no longer be deemed to be outstanding, the Disqualified Holder shall cease to be a stockholder/Securities holder with respect to such Subject Shares and all rights of such Disqualified Holder therein (without limiting the effect of Section 4 of this ARTICLE XI), other than the right to receive the Redemption Price, shall cease.

Section 6. Appeal of Gaming Authority Determination. The operation of this ARTICLE XI shall not be stayed by an appeal from a determination of any Gaming Authority.

 

Section 7. Determination by Board. The Board shall have the power to determine, on the basis of information known to the Board after reasonable inquiry, all questions arising under this ARTICLE XI, including, without limitation, (a) whether a Person is a Disqualified Holder, (b) whether a Disqualified Holder has disposed of Securities pursuant to Section 2(a) or Section 2(b) of this ARTICLE XI, as applicable, (c) the amount of Securities held directly or indirectly by any Person and (d) the amount of Securities that are required to be disposed of to enable the Corporation to then determine that such Person would no longer be deemed a Disqualified Holder, if applicable. Any such determination shall be binding and conclusive on all such Persons.

 

Section 8. Indemnification. A Disqualified Holder shall indemnify and hold harmless the Corporation and its Affiliated Companies from, against and for any and all losses, costs, and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, incurred by the Corporation and/or its Affiliated Companies as a result of, or arising out of, directly or indirectly, such Disqualified Holder’s continuing to Own or Control any Securities after the relevant Notice Date, the neglect, refusal or other failure by such Disqualified Holder to comply with the provisions of this ARTICLE XI, or failure of such Disqualified Holder to divest itself of the Securities as and when required by any Gaming Authority or this ARTICLE XI.

 

Section 9. Equitable Relief. The Corporation shall be entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce the provisions of this ARTICLE XI, and each holder of Securities shall be deemed to have acknowledged, by acquiring such Securities, that the failure to comply with this ARTICLE XI will expose the Corporation to irreparable injury for which there is no adequate remedy at law and that the Corporation is entitled to injunctive or other equitable relief to enforce the provisions of this ARTICLE XI.

Section 10. Non-exclusivity of Rights. The rights of the Corporation pursuant to this ARTICLE XI shall not be exclusive of any other rights the Corporation or any of its Affiliated Companies may have or hereafter acquire under any agreement, provision of the bylaws of the Corporation or such Affiliated Company or otherwise. Nothing in this ARTICLE XI shall be construed to: (i) relieve any Disqualified Holder (or any Affiliate thereof) from any fiduciary obligation imposed by law, (ii) prohibit or affect any contractual arrangement which the Corporation may make from time to time with any holder of Securities to purchase all or any part of any other securities held by such holder or (iii) be in derogation of any action, past or future, which has been or may be taken by the Board or any holder of Securities with respect to the subject matter of this ARTICLE XI.

 

Section 11. Further Actions. Nothing contained in this ARTICLE XI shall limit the authority of the Corporation to take such other action to the extent permitted by law as it deems necessary or advisable to protect the Corporation or its Affiliated Companies from the denial or threatened denial or loss or threatened loss of any Gaming License held by the Corporation or any of its Affiliated Companies. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Board may conform any provisions of this ARTICLE XI to the extent necessary to make such provisions consistent with applicable laws, including Gaming Laws. In addition, the Board may, to the extent permitted by law, from time to time establish, modify, amend or rescind Bylaws, regulations, and procedures of the Corporation not inconsistent with the express provisions of this ARTICLE XI for the purpose of determining whether any Person is a Disqualified Holder and for the orderly application, administration and implementation of the provisions of this ARTICLE XI. Such procedures and regulations shall be kept on file with the Secretary of the Corporation, the secretary (or equivalent) of its Affiliated Companies and with the transfer agent, if any, of the Corporation and any Affiliated Companies, and shall be made available for inspection, upon request, or mailed to any holder of Securities. The Board shall have exclusive authority and power to administer this ARTICLE XI and to exercise all rights and powers specifically granted to the Board or the Corporation, or as may be necessary or advisable in the administration of this ARTICLE XI. All such actions which are done or made by the Board in good faith shall be final, conclusive and binding on the Corporation and all other Persons. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board may delegate all or any portion of its duties and powers under this ARTICLE XI to a committee of the Board as it deems necessary or advisable.

 

Section 12. Severability. If any provision of this ARTICLE XI or the application of any such provision to any Person or under any circumstance shall be held invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision of this ARTICLE XI.

 

Section 13. Termination and Waivers. Except as may be required by any applicable law or by a Gaming Authority, the Board may waive any of the rights of the Corporation or any restrictions contained in this ARTICLE XI in any instance in which the Board determines that a waiver would be in the best interests of the Corporation. The Board may terminate any rights of the Corporation or restrictions set forth in this ARTICLE XI to the extent that the Board determines that any such termination is in the best interests of the Corporation. Except as may be required by a Gaming Authority, nothing in this ARTICLE XI shall be deemed or construed to require the Corporation to redeem or repurchase any Securities Owned or Controlled by a Disqualified Holder.
