Section 15.1    Assignability of Interests. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Article XV, no Member or other Interest Holder may assign the whole or any part of its Interests (including, without limitation, any direct or indirect assignment, whether by operation of law or otherwise, pursuant to a merger, consolidation or conversion involving an Interest Holder) without the prior written consent of (i) so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Members (which may include such assigning Member) owning a majority of the issued and outstanding Class A Common Membership Interests or (ii) upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, and during the continuation thereof, the Members (which may include such assigning Member) owning a majority of the issued and outstanding Class A Preferred Membership Interests, Class B Preferred Membership Interests and Class C Preferred Membership Interests, voting together as a single class, in either case which consent may be given or withheld in the sole discretion of each such Member. If the prior written consent of such Members is obtained for any such assignment, such assignment shall not entitle the assignee to become a Substitute Member or to exercise or receive any of the rights, powers or benefits of a Member other than the right to receive distributions to which the assigning Member would be entitled, unless the assigning Member designates, in a written instrument delivered to the other Members, its assignee to become a Substitute Member and the admission of such assignee as a Member is consented to in writing by (i) so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing the Members (which may include such assigning Member) owning a majority of the issued and outstanding Class A Common Membership Interests or (ii) upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, and during the continuation thereof, the Members (which may include such assigning Member) owning a majority of the issued and outstanding Class A Preferred Membership Interests, Class B Preferred Membership Interests and Class C Preferred Membership Interests, voting together as a single class, in either case which consent may be given or withheld in the sole discretion of each such Member; and provided, further, that such assignee shall not become a Substitute Member without having first executed an instrument reasonably satisfactory to the Board accepting and agreeing to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, which instrument may be a counterpart of this Agreement, and without having paid to the Company a fee sufficient to cover all reasonable expenses of the Company in connection with such assignee’s admission as a Substitute Member. If a Member assigns all of its interest in the Company and the assignee of such interest is entitled to become a Substitute Member pursuant to this Article XV, such assignee shall be admitted to the Company effective immediately prior to the effective date of the assignment, and, immediately following such admission, the assigning Member shall cease to be a member of the Company, and the Company shall continue without dissolution.

Section 15.2    Recognition of Assignment by Company. To the fullest extent permitted by law, no assignment, or any part thereof, that is in violation of this Article XV shall be valid or effective, and neither the Company nor the Members shall recognize the same for the purpose of making distributions pursuant to Article IX hereof with respect to such Interest or part thereof. To the fullest extent permitted by law, neither the Company, the Members, the Directors nor the Officers shall incur any liability as a result of refusing to make any such distributions to the assignee of any such invalid assignment.

Section 15.3    Effective Date of Assignment. The Company shall maintain books for the purpose of registering the transfer of Interests. Any valid assignment of an Interest Holder’s Interests, or part thereof,





pursuant to the provisions of Section 15.1 hereof shall be effective when the transfer of the Interests is registered upon books maintained for that purpose by or on behalf of the Company. The Company shall, from the effective date of such assignment, thereafter pay all further distribu-tions on account of the Interests (or part thereof) so assigned, to the assignee of such interest(s), or part thereof.

Section 15.4    Pledge.
