(l) FURTHER ACTS: Each Party must, and must ensure that its directors, employees, officers, agents, representatives and contractors do all things and sign, execute and deliver all documents, agreements and instruments as reasonably required in order to give effect to this Agreement and to the rights and obligations of the Parties created under this Agreement.
