Item 1.01.
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

As previously disclosed, AgileThought, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), and certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company Parties”) filed voluntary petitions (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) under title 11 of the United States Code, 11 U.S.C. §§ 101, et seq. (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in  the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”).  On September 25, 2023, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order approving bidding procedures (the “Bidding Procedures”) and scheduling a hearing to approve the Company Parties’ and AT Holdings Corp.’s, a Delaware corporation (the “Stalking Horse Buyer”), entry into an asset purchase agreement (the “Agreement”), subject to the receipt of higher or better offers from competing bidders at an auction.

On October 10, 2023, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order approving the Company Parties’ and Stalking Horse Buyer’s entry into the Agreement, subject to the Bidding Procedures, and the $1,500,000 expense reimbursement (the “Expense Reimbursement”) sought therein. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Agreement, the Stalking Horse Buyer agreed to acquire certain assets of the Company Parties, including equity interests in certain of their subsidiaries, intellectual property and certain contracts and other related assets (collectively, the “Assets”), and assume certain specified liabilities of the Company Parties (collectively, the “Liabilities” and such acquisition of the Assets and assumption of the Liabilities, the “Transaction”) for a total purchase price of $100,000,000 plus the assumption of the Liabilities (the “Purchase Price”). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Purchase Price will be satisfied by the Stalking Horse Buyer on behalf of the applicable lenders pursuant to a credit bid under Section 363(k) of the Bankruptcy Code (the “Credit Bid”), by decreasing (i) the amount of obligations due under the Senior Secured Super-Priority Debtor-in-Possession Financing Agreement, dated as of August 30, 2023 (the “DIP Facility”) and (ii) the amount of obligations due under the Financing Agreement, dated May 27, 2022, by and among the Company and AN Global LLC, the financial institutions party thereto as lenders (the “Pre-Petition Lenders”), and the administrative agent and collateral agent (the “Pre-Petition Credit Facility”). The Stalking Horse Buyer’s offer to purchase the Assets and assume the Liabilities pursuant to the Agreement is the standard against which any other qualifying bids will be evaluated in accordance with the Bidding Procedures.

Concurrently with the execution of the Agreement, the Pre-Petition Lenders, on behalf of the Stalking Horse Buyer, have executed a Deposit Assignment Agreement, pursuant to which they contingently assigned $10,000,000 of secured claims under the Pre-Petition Credit Facility to the Company Parties (the “Deposit”). If the Transaction closes, the Deposit will be applied toward the Purchase Price. If the Agreement is terminated, the Deposit will be returned to the Pre-Petition Lenders, subject to certain exceptions relating to a material breach of the Agreement by the Stalking Horse Buyer or the termination by either the Stalking Horse Buyer or the Company Parties if the closing has not occurred by November 26, 2023 (the “Termination Date”), despite all closing conditions for the benefit of the Stalking Horse Buyer having been fulfilled or waived.

The Agreement provides the Stalking Horse Buyer with certain bid protections. In particular, if the Agreement is terminated for any reason and within three months following such termination, the Company Parties enter into a binding agreement with a competing bidder and the Stalking Horse Bidder is not in material breach of any of its material obligations under the Agreement, or if the Agreement is terminated by the Stalking Horse Buyer because of a material breach of the Agreement by the Company Parties, the Company Parties will be required to reimburse the Stalking Horse Buyer for the Expense Reimbursement equal to documented out-of-pocket fees and expenses incurred in connection with the Transaction in an amount not to exceed an aggregate of $1,500,000.

The Agreement contains customary representations and warranties of the parties and the completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of customary conditions, which, among others, include the entry of an order of the Bankruptcy Court satisfactory to the parties approving the Transaction, the expiration of applicable antitrust waiting periods (if applicable) and obtaining of approval by applicable antitrust authorities, if any, the performance by each party of its obligations under the Agreement, the material accuracy of each party’s representations, and the Company Parties’ obtaining of certain third party consents. The Agreement contains certain termination rights for both the Company Parties and the Stalking Horse Buyer, including the right to terminate the Agreement if the Transaction is not consummated by the Termination Date or if the Company Parties enter into a transaction with a competing bidder. The Transaction is also subject to the approval of the Bankruptcy Court. Accordingly, the Company Parties can give no assurances of the outcome of the Transaction and whether the Stalking Horse Buyer will be successful in acquiring the Assets and assuming the Liabilities pursuant to the Agreement.

2

The foregoing summary of the Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 2.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The representations, warranties and covenants set forth in the Agreement have been made only for the purposes of the Agreement and solely for the benefit of the parties thereto and may be subject to limitations agreed upon by the contracting parties, including being qualified by confidential disclosures made for the purposes of allocating contractual risk between the parties to the Agreement instead of establishing these matters as facts. In addition, information regarding the subject matter of the representations and warranties made in the Agreement may change after the date of the Agreement. Accordingly, the Agreement is included with this Current Report on Form 8-K only to provide investors with information regarding its terms and not to provide investors with any other factual information regarding the Company Parties, the Assets or Liabilities, or the Company Parties’ respective businesses as of the date of the Agreement or as of any other date.

Item 5.02(c).

On October 6, 2023, Alejandro Manzocchi, age 37, was appointed as Global Chief Operating Officer.

In June 2022, Mr. Manzocchi received restricted stock unit awards, each representing a contingent right to receive one share of the Company’s Class A Common Stock (each, an “RSU”), consisting of 182,500 time-based RSUs and 101,250 performance-based RSUs. Out of the time-based RSUs, one third vested in 2022 and 2023, respectively, and the remainder will vest in 2024.  The performance-based RSUs vest as follows: Approx. 13% vest upon the Company’s Class A Common Stock achieving a market price of $8 per share, approx. 20% vest upon achieving a market price of $10 per share, approx. 33% vest upon achieving a market price of $12 per share, approx. 17% vest upon achieving a market price of $15 per share, and approx. 17% vest upon achieving a market price of $20 per share. Vesting of the RSUs is subject to continued employment. The performance-based RSUs will expire on December 31, 2027.

Pursuant to his employment agreement, Mr. Manzocchi is further eligible to receive an annual RSU award covering shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock with an approximate grant date fair value of $200,000, subject to approval of, and as determined by, the Company’s board of directors.

Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Statements

This Current Report on Form 8-K includes certain statements that are not historical facts but are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” “should,” “would,” “plan,” “predict,” “potential,” “seem,” “seek,” “future,” “outlook,” and similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of factors, risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those expressed in or contemplated by the forward-looking statements. Such factors, risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, risks associated with approval by the Bankruptcy Court of the Transaction; the possibility that the Transaction may be more expensive to complete than anticipated; the effects of the Chapter 11 Cases, including increased legal and other professional costs necessary to execute the Company’s reorganization, on the Company’s liquidity (including the availability of operating capital during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases), results of operations or business prospects; the effects of the Chapter 11 Cases on the interests of various constituents and financial stakeholders; the length of time that the Company will operate under Chapter 11 protection and the continued availability of operating capital during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Cases; objections to the Company’s restructuring process, any senior secured super-priority debtor in possession term loan facilities, or other pleadings filed that could protract the Chapter 11 Cases; risks associated with third-party motions in the Chapter 11 Cases; Bankruptcy Court rulings in the Chapter 11 Cases and the outcome of the Chapter 11 Cases in general; the Company’s ability to comply with the restrictions imposed by the proposed terms and conditions of the Agreement and by the DIP Facility and other financing arrangements, and the effect of such restrictions on the Company’s business; employee attrition and the Company’s ability to retain senior management and other key personnel due to the distractions and uncertainties; the Company’s ability to maintain relationships with suppliers, customers, employees and other third parties and regulatory authorities as a result of the Chapter 11 Cases; the impact and timing of any cost-savings measures and related local law requirements in various jurisdictions; risks relating to the delisting of the Company’s common stock and warrants from Nasdaq and future quotation thereof; the impact of litigation and regulatory proceedings; the impact and timing of any cost-savings measures; the ability of the Company to use the Purchase Price to efficiently support its business; the Company Parties’ ability to obtain exit financing and to pursue a plan of reorganization and exit the Chapter 11 Cases; the ability to close the Transaction or any alternative transaction, in a timely manner or at all; the failure to satisfy conditions to completion of the Transaction, including receipt of required regulatory and other approvals, or the failure to close such Transaction for any other reason; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Agreement by the Stalking Horse Buyer; the results of an auction, if any, whether bidders participate in such auction and the quality of the bids they submit; the entry by the Bankruptcy Court into any sale order relating to the Agreement or any alternative transaction; and those factors discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in each case under the heading “Risk Factors,” and other documents of the Company filed, or to be filed, with the SEC. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that the Company presently does not know or that the Company currently believes are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this document. The Company anticipates that subsequent events and developments will cause its assessments to change. However, while the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, the Company specifically disclaims any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the Company’s assessments as of any date after the date of this document. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.

Section 2.5         Contract Designation Rights and Acquired Entities.
 
(a)         Schedule 2.1(c) sets forth a list (the “Executory Contracts List) of all Contracts and Leases of Sellers that are subject to assumption or rejection pursuant to Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code (each, an “Executory Contract”), and, following the date of this Agreement but prior to the date that is three (3) days prior to the Auction, Sellers will add thereto their good-faith estimate of the Cure Costs associated with each Executory Contract. Sellers shall supplement such Executory Contracts List prior to the Designation Deadline to add or remove any Executory Contracts inadvertently included or excluded from such schedule (and such supplement shall be acceptable (or not acceptable) to Buyer in its sole discretion) as soon as reasonably practicable following discovery of inadvertent inclusion or exclusion, but in no event later than three (3) Business Days following such discovery.
 
(b)       At any time prior to the Closing Date (the “Designation Deadline”), Buyer will have the right to amend or supplement Schedule 2.1(c) to (i) designate an Executory Contract as an Excluded Contract, and upon such designation such Executory Contract will constitute an Excluded Asset, and (ii) designate an Executory Contract as an Assigned Contract and upon such designation such Executory Contract will constitute an Acquired Asset and will be conveyed to Buyer, subject to Bankruptcy Court approval, under this Agreement effective as of at Closing.  All Executory Contracts that are not designated by Buyer as an Assigned Contract in Schedule 2.1(c) prior to the Designation Deadline shall not be considered Assigned Contracts or Acquired Assets and shall automatically be deemed Excluded Contracts (and for the avoidance of doubt, Buyer shall not be responsible for any related Cure Costs); provided, however, that if an Executory Contract is subject to a cure dispute or other dispute as to the assumption or assignment of such Executory Contract that has not been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of Buyer and Sellers prior to the Designation Deadline, then the Designation Deadline shall be extended (but only with respect to such Executory Contract and only while Buyer pays the ordinary course costs and expenses arising in connection with such Executory Contract) to no later than the earlier of (A) the date on which such dispute has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of Buyer and Sellers, (B) sixty (60) days following the Closing Date, (C) the date on which such Executory Contract is either no longer permitted to be assumed or assigned or deemed rejected pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 365(d)(2) or (4) and (D) the date required by the Bankruptcy Court and set forth in the Sale Order (the “Extended Contract Period”).  If such Executory Contract is not expressly assumed by Buyer in writing by the end of such Extended Contract Period, such Executory Contract shall be automatically deemed an Excluded Contract.
 
(c)         Omitted Contracts.
 
(i)         If following the Designation Deadline but prior to the expiration of the Extended Contract Period (to the extent applicable), it is discovered that an Executory Contract should have been listed on Schedule 2.1(c) but was not listed on Schedule 2.1(c) (any such Executory Contract, a “Omitted Contract”), Sellers shall, promptly following the discovery thereof (but in no event later than three (3) Business Days following the discovery thereof), notify Buyer in writing of such Omitted Contract and all Cure Costs (if any) for such Omitted Contract, and provide Buyer a copy of such Omitted Contract.  Buyer shall thereafter deliver written notice to Sellers, no later than five (5) Business Days following notification of such Omitted Contract from Sellers, designating such Omitted Contract as an Assigned Contract or Excluded Contract (a “Omitted Contract Designation”).  An Omitted Contract designated in accordance with this Section 2.5(c)(i) as an Excluded Contract, or with respect to which Buyer fails to timely deliver an Omitted Contract Designation, shall be an Excluded Contract.
 
24

(ii)         If Buyer designates an Omitted Contract as an Assigned Contract in accordance with Section 2.5(c)(i), Sellers shall serve a notice (the “Omitted Contract Notice”) on the counterparties to such Omitted Contract notifying such counterparties of the Cure Costs with respect to such Omitted Contract and Sellers’ intention to assume and assign such Omitted Contract in accordance with this Section 2.5.  The Omitted Contract Notice shall provide the counterparties to such Omitted Contract with seven (7) Business Days to object, in writing to Sellers and Buyer, to the Cure Costs or the assumption of its Contract.  If the counterparty to an assumed Omitted Contract files an objection to the Cure Costs in a manner that is consistent with the Bidding Procedures, and Sellers, Buyer, and counterparty are unable to reach a consensual resolution with respect to the objection, Sellers shall seek an expedited hearing before the Bankruptcy Court to determine the Cure Costs, if any, and approve the assumption of the relevant Omitted Contract.  If no objection to the Cure Costs is served on Sellers and Buyer, Sellers shall seek an order of the Bankruptcy Court, including by filing a certification of no objection, fixing the Cure Costs and approving the assumption of the Omitted Contract.  In the event the Bankruptcy Court determines the Cure Costs in a manner not acceptable to Buyer, Buyer reserves the right to designate such Omitted Contract as an Excluded Contract.  Buyer shall be responsible for all Cure Costs relating to the Omitted Contracts that are designated as an Assigned Contract.
 
(d)        To the maximum extent permitted by the Bankruptcy Code and subject to the other provisions of this Agreement, on the Closing Date, Sellers shall assign the Assigned Contracts to Buyer pursuant to Sections 363 and 365 of the Bankruptcy Code and the Sale Order, subject to payment by Buyer of the Cure Costs.
 
(e)        Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as an attempt by Sellers to assign any Executory Contract to the extent that such Executory Contract is not assignable under the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise without the consent of the other party or parties thereto, if applicable law would require such consent, and the consent of such other party has not been given or received, as applicable.  With respect to any Assigned Contract for which the consent of a party thereto to the assignment thereof shall not have been obtained at Closing and any claim, right or benefit arising thereunder or resulting therefrom, to the extent Buyer waives the condition set forth in Section 9.2(i) (to the extent applicable), prior to the Closing Date, Sellers and Buyer shall use their reasonable good faith efforts to obtain as expeditiously as possible the written consent of the other party or parties to such Assigned Contract necessary for the assignment thereof to Buyer.  Unless and until any such consent, waiver, confirmation, novation or approval is obtained, Sellers and Buyer shall cooperate to establish an arrangement reasonably satisfactory to Sellers and Buyer under which Buyer would obtain the claims, rights and benefits and assume the corresponding Liabilities and obligations thereunder (including by means of any subcontracting, sublicensing or subleasing arrangement).  In such event, (i) Sellers will hold in trust for and promptly pay to Buyer, when received, all moneys received by them under any such Executory Contract or any claim, right or benefit arising thereunder and (ii) Buyer will promptly pay, perform or discharge, when due, any and all obligations and Liabilities arising thereunder, other than those being contested in good faith.  Buyer acknowledges that no adjustment to the Purchase Price shall be made for any such Executory Contracts that are not assigned and that Buyer shall have no claim against Sellers in respect of such unassigned Executory Contracts.  Nothing in this paragraph shall be deemed a waiver of Buyer’s right to receive an effective assignment of all of the Acquired Assets at Closing nor shall any Executory Contracts covered by this paragraph be deemed to constitute Excluded Assets solely by virtue of this paragraph.
 
25

(f)         Further notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, by written notice to Sellers, Buyer may, in its sole and absolute discretion, amend or revise Schedule A and Schedule 2.1(a) at any time and from time to time prior to the date that is two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, in order to add any direct or indirect Subsidiary of Sellers to such schedules (and such added Subsidiary shall be automatically included as an Additional Seller for purposes of Schedule A or an Acquired Entity for purposes of Schedule 2.1(a)), or remove any direct or indirect Subsidiary of Sellers from such schedules (and such removed Subsidiary shall be automatically deemed an Excluded Subsidiary for purposes of this Agreement).  Only those Subsidiaries on the final Schedule A and Schedule 2.1(a) as of the date that is two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date shall be considered Additional Sellers and Acquired Entities, respectively.

26

Section 3.3        Allocation of Purchase Price.  The Purchase Price (and any amounts treated as purchase price for U.S. federal income tax purposes, including the Assumed Liabilities) shall be allocated among the various Acquired Assets, in accordance with Section 1060 of the IRC and the applicable Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder (the “Allocation”).  Buyer shall, not later than 90 days after the Closing Date, prepare and deliver to Sellers a draft of the Allocation for Sellers’ review and comments.  Sellers shall provide comments to the draft Allocation to Buyer within 30 days after delivery of the draft Allocation by Buyer and if Sellers do not provide any comments within such 30 days period, the draft Allocation prepared by Buyer shall be final and binding on the parties.  If a Seller timely makes any comments to the draft Allocation, Buyer and such Seller shall work in good faith to resolve any disputes within 20 days from the date such Seller delivers its comments to Buyer.  Buyer will consider in good faith any timely received reasonable comments provided by such Seller.  Unless otherwise required by a final determination within the meaning of IRC Section 1313 or any equivalent provisions of non-U.S., state or local Tax Law, the Allocation, as finally determined pursuant to this Section 3.3, shall be final and binding on the Parties and Sellers and Buyer shall (a) use such Allocation, as finally determined pursuant to this Section 3.3, for the purpose of making the requisite filings under Section 1060 of the IRC, and the regulations thereunder, (b) report, and to cause their respective Affiliates to report, the federal, state, and local income and other Tax consequences of the transactions contemplated herein, and in particular to report the information required by Section 1060(b) of the IRC, and to jointly prepare Form 8594 (Asset Acquisition Statement under Section 1060 of the IRC) as promptly as possible following the Closing Date and in a manner consistent with such Allocation, and (c) promptly notify the other of the existence of any Tax audit, controversy, or litigation related to such Allocation.  Notwithstanding the allocation of the Purchase Price agreed among the parties hereto pursuant to this Section 3.3 for the aforementioned Tax purposes, nothing in the foregoing shall be determinative of values ascribed to the Acquired Assets or the allocation of the value of the Acquired Assets for any other purpose.

Section 12.7       Delays or Omissions.  Except as expressly provided herein, no delay or omission to exercise any right, power or remedy accruing to Sellers or Buyer upon any breach or default of any party under this Agreement, shall impair any such right, power or remedy of Sellers or Buyer nor shall it be construed to be a waiver of any such breach or default, or an acquiescence therein, or of or in any similar breach or default thereafter occurring; nor shall any waiver of any single breach or default be deemed a waiver of any other breach or default theretofore or thereafter occurring.  Any waiver, permit, consent or approval of any kind or character on the part of Sellers or Buyer of any breach or default under this Agreement, or any waiver on the part of any such party of any provisions or conditions of this Agreement, must be in writing and shall be effective only to the extent specifically set forth in such writing.  All remedies, either under this Agreement or by law, in equity, or otherwise afforded to Sellers or Buyer shall be cumulative and not alternative.
 
59

Section 12.8       Counterparts.  This Agreement may be signed in any number of counterparts, including by facsimile or other electronic transmission each of which shall be an original, with the same effect as if the signatures thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument.  This Agreement shall become effective when each party hereto shall have received a counterpart hereof signed by all of the other parties hereto.  Until and unless each party hereto has received a counterpart hereof signed by the other parties hereto, this Agreement shall have no effect and no party hereto shall have any right or obligation hereunder (whether by virtue of any other oral or written agreement or other communication).  The exchange of a fully executed Agreement (in counterparts or otherwise) by electronic transmission in .PDF format or by facsimile shall be sufficient to bind the parties hereto to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
 
Section 12.9        Severability.  In the event that any provision of this Agreement becomes or is declared by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, unenforceable or void, this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect without said provisions; provided, however, that no such severability shall be effective if it materially changes the economic benefit of this Agreement to any party.  Any provision held invalid or unenforceable only in part or degree will remain in full force to the extent not held invalid or unenforceable.
 
Section 12.10    No Public Announcement.  Absent the prior written consent of the other party, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned, neither Sellers nor Buyer shall make any press release, public announcement or securities filing with any Governmental Authority concerning the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, except as and to the extent that any such party shall be obligated to make any such disclosure by this Agreement or by applicable Law, and then only after giving the other party hereto adequate time to review such disclosure and consider in good faith the comments of the other party hereto and consultation as to such comments with such party as to the content of such disclosure, provided, however, that nothing in this Section 12.10 shall restrict the parties hereto from making disclosures to the Bankruptcy Court or in filings in the Bankruptcy Court; provided, however, that, to the extent practicable, the disclosing party provides the non-disclosing party with copies of all such filings or disclosures concerning the transactions contemplated by the Transaction Documents, to be delivered to such non-disclosing party at least two (2) days in advance of any such filing or disclosure and that the disclosing party shall consider in good faith any comments made by the non-disclosing party to such filings or disclosures.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the parties hereto and each of their respective employees, representatives or other agents, are permitted to disclose to any and all Persons, without limitations of any kind, the tax treatment and tax structure of the transactions and all materials of any kind (including opinions or other tax analyses) that are or have been provided to such parties related to such tax treatment and tax structure; provided, however, that the foregoing permission to disclose the tax treatment and tax structure does not permit the disclosure of any information that is not relevant to understanding the tax treatment or tax structure of the transactions (including the identity of any party and the amounts paid in connection with the transactions); provided further, however, that the tax treatment and tax structure shall be kept confidential to the extent necessary to comply with federal or state securities laws.

Section 12.11     Specific Performance.  Sellers and Buyer agree that irreparable damage, for which monetary relief, even if available, would not be an adequate remedy, would occur in the event that any provision of this Agreement is not performed in accordance with its specific terms or is otherwise breached, including if any of the Parties fails to take any action required of it hereunder to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.  It is accordingly agreed that (a) Sellers or Buyer will be entitled to an injunction or injunctions, specific performance or other equitable relief to prevent breaches of this Agreement and to enforce specifically the parties’ respective covenants and agreements under this Agreement that survive the Closing, without the requirement of posting a bond or other security, and without proof of damages or otherwise, this being in addition to any other remedy to which they are entitled under this Agreement, and (b) the right of specific performance and other equitable relief is an integral part of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and without that right, neither Sellers nor Buyer would have entered into this Agreement.  The remedies available to Sellers pursuant to this Section 12.11 will be in addition to any other remedy to which they were entitled at law or in equity, and the election to pursue an injunction or specific performance will not restrict, impair or otherwise limit any Seller from seeking to collect or collecting damages.  In no event will this Section 12.11 be used, alone or together with any other provision of this Agreement, to require any Seller to remedy any breach of any representation or warranty of any Seller made herein.
