shall receive a number of Class B Ordinary Shares equal to the number of shares held by the Founders in the Company multiplied by the IPO Exchange Ratio.
(c) Subject to either of the following conditions precedent (aufschiebende Bedingung) – (i) an Adverse Ruling Determination has occurred (and a Ruling Event described in clause (b) of the definition of “Ruling Event” has not occurred with respect to each Adverse Ruling Determination by the End Date) or (ii) a Ruling Event has occurred and, as of the End Date, the Merger has not been consummated – the Founders shall have the right (option) to receive from HoldCo a number of Class A or Class B Ordinary Shares (or a combination thereof, as shall be determined in the sole discretion of the applicable Founder) (the “New Holdco Shares,” and such right, the “Put Right”) equal to the number of shares of the Company desired to be exchanged multiplied by the IPO Exchange Ratio. The Put Right shall, however, not exist if at the points in time set forth in the preceding sentence all actions and steps have already been taken by the parties to this Agreement to execute the Merger, unless a court or another Governmental Authority has finally rejected registration of the Merger. The Founders may exercise the Put Right for all or a portion of their shares in the Company by contributing such shares to HoldCo in exchange for the issuance of the New HoldCo Shares (contribution in kind).
(d) The Put Right shall be exercisable by delivery from each applicable Founder to HoldCo of a written notice specifying the number of shares of the Company such Founder desires to exchange, the number of New HoldCo Shares to be issued in respect thereof after applying the IPO Exchange Ratio and the number of New HoldCo Shares that shall be Class A Ordinary Shares and the number of New HoldCo Shares that shall be Class B Ordinary Shares (the “Put Option Notice”). Within five (5) business days after receipt of the Put Option Notice, (i) HoldCo shall, at its cost and expense, perform all actions required to issue, and issue the New HoldCo Shares covered by the Put Option Notice to the Founder and (ii) the relevant Founders shall transfer their shares in the Company covered by the Put Option Notice to Holdco.
(e) Prior to the IPO Date, (1) the Founders shall ensure that the management board of HoldCo passes the resolution set forth in Schedule 2.3(e)(i) and (2) Expedia and the Founders shall ensure that the supervisory board of HoldCo shall approve such resolution. HoldCo undertakes not to revoke such resolution. Subject to the exercise of the Put Right by one or more Founders, HoldCo and the relevant Founder(s) shall enter into either a deed of issue of Class A Ordinary Share a form of which is attached as Schedule 2.3(e)(ii) and/or a deed of issue of Class B Ordinary Shares a form of which is attached as Schedule 2.3(e)(iii) (in each case at the discretion of the Founder concerned) giving effect to the Put Right.
(f) Expedia, the Founders, the Company and HoldCo shall implement the following structural features and mechanics for the Company and HoldCo, as applicable:
(i) HoldCo shall contribute to the Company all but EUR 30 million of the net proceeds from the Potential IPO in exchange for additional shares of the Company (the number of which shares shall be consistent with the principles set forth in Section 2.3(f)(ii) below, as if HoldCo had contributed all of the net proceeds from the Potential IPO), and HoldCo shall not hold any material assets or liabilities outside of the Company;
