(b) The Dissolution shall comply with:

(I) the terms of the Partnership Agreement; and

(d) The Partners shall promptly sign any necessary documents and shall take all necessary steps in order to formalise the Dissolution in accordance with the terms of this Deed.

(e) In relation to the sale of the Partnership business (the "Business"), the Partners must cooperate and must act diligently in order to maximise the sale price for the Business and to sell the Business as quickly as possible.

(f) In relation to the sale of any Partnership assets ("Assets") which the Partners are selling to a third party (outside the Partnership), the Partners must cooperate and must act diligently in order to maximise the sale price for such Assets and to sell those said Assets as quickly as possible.

(g) The Partners may, by unanimous consent, agree to a particular Asset being transferred to a particular Partner at an agreed price.

(h) Any Partner choosing to receive one or more of the Assets may choose to receive the Asset(s) in specie rather than receiving any share of the monetary proceeds of sale of that Asset, and the value of any Asset received in such manner may be offset against that Partner's share in any final distribution of Partnership proceeds.

(i) In the event that the Partners do not unanimously consent to a particular Asset being transferred to a Partner, or do not agree on the price at which such distribution may occur, then the Asset must be sold to a third party.

(j) The Partners will engage a to be determined accountant (the "Accountant") to assist with and to provide advice in relation to the Dissolution. The Partners will at all times act in accordance with the advice of the Accountant in relation to the Dissolution.

(l) On completion of the Accounting, the Partners shall pay all of the liabilities of the Partnership, including those owed to the Partners, from Partnership funds, in accordance with the relevant partnership laws in New South Wales.

(m) After accounting for all assets and liabilities of the Partnership, in the event that there is a shortfall, the Partners will pay for their share of any loss in proportion to their respective shares in the Partnership. Such payments by the Partners will be calculated to fully discharge all of the creditors of the Partnership and must be paid in full by the Partners on or before the Dissolution Date.

(n) After accounting for all assets and liabilities of the Partnership, in the event that there is a surplus, all amounts remaining after payment of the above liabilities shall be distributed equally between the Partners (the "Dissolution Distribution").

(o) Each Partner respectively will each accept the distribution of the Partnership capital, in the amounts described above, in full and final satisfaction of that Partner's rights in the Partnership.

(p) Except as disclosed in the books and records of the Partnership, each of the Partners represents and warrants that no Partner has previously contracted any liability that can or may be charged to the Partnership or any other Partner, nor has any Partner received or discharged any of the credits, moneys, or effects of the Partnership.

(q) In the event that there is a disagreement between the Partners in relation to the Dissolution:

(I) the Partners will first attempt to resolve the disagreement in good faith between themselves; and

(II) in the event that the Partners are unable to resolve the disagreement between themselves, then the Partners will attempt to reach agreement about an independent expert who shall be appointed to determine the disagreement; and

(III) in the event that the Partners are unable to agree on an independent expert, then the President for the time being of the Law Society of New South Wales shall appoint an expert to determine the disagreement.

(r) All Partners shall have the right, directly or through a representative, at all reasonable times, to examine the books and pertinent records of the Partnership to establish and enforce their rights under this Deed.


(2) RELEASE AND INDEMNIFICATION

(a) As from the Dissolution Date, and provided that the Partners comply with the terms of this Deed, then each Partner releases all other Partners from any and all known claims, actions, and demands arising as a result of the Partnership. This release does not prevent a Partner from bringing suit under this Dissolution Deed, should this Deed not be fulfilled according to the rules set forth.

(b) In the event that a Partner defaults in that Partner's obligations under this Deed, and that default causes another Partner to suffer a loss, whether directly or indirectly, then the Partner which was in default will indemnify and keep indemnified each other Partner against any and all losses, claims, actions, and demands arising directly or indirectly out of that default.

Each Partner, (which for the purposes of this clause shall be referred to as the "Warranting Party" as the context requires) hereby respectively warrants:

(a) that the Warranting Party fully understands the terms of this Deed.

(b) that the Warranting Party has had the opportunity to obtain independent legal advice in relation to the matters addressed by this Deed and the Warranting Party has either:

(I) taken such independent legal advice; or

(II) elected not to take such independent legal advice.

(c) that the Warranting Party has not been induced to enter this Deed by any representation(s) made by any other Partner or by any officer, employee, director, agent, contractor, assignee, successor or other representative of any other Partner, except as provided in this Deed.


(4) MISCELLANEOUS

(b) Any and all changes to this Deed must be in writing and signed by all Partners.

(c) A Partner may not assign any of its rights or benefits under this Deed except with the prior written consent of all other Partners.

(g) If any provision in this Deed shall for any reason be held invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect, that invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other provision of this Deed, and this Deed shall be construed as if the invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision had never been contained in this Deed.
