(c)    HoldCo shall (and, to the extent within their respective power to do so, Expedia and the Founders shall cause HoldCo to) in its capacity as legal successor of the Company exercise the election right of the Company pursuant to Section 11 (2) sentence 1 RTA in order for the Merger to be treated as a transaction at tax book value pursuant to Section 11 (2) sentence 1 RTA, unless otherwise required by mandatory Law.
(d)    Each of the Founders agrees to timely file his notifications under Section 22 (3) RTA. Upon the written request of a Founder and within ten (10) business days following the receipt of such written request, HoldCo shall (and, to the extent within their respective power to do so, Expedia and the Founders shall cause HoldCo to) provide such Founder with copies of all documents as reasonably requested by such Founder to prepare its notification under Section 22 (3) RTA. Each Founder and HoldCo shall (and, to the extent within their respective power to do so, Expedia and the Founders shall cause HoldCo to) consult and reasonably cooperate with each other to enable such Founder to comply with his notification obligations under Section 22 (3) RTA. A breach of this Section 2.7(d) by a Founder shall not give rise to a claim for damages against such Founder (x) if such Founder has acted on instructions provided by or has taken measures that have been approved by Expedia or Expedia’s advisors or (y) if Expedia and its advisors have failed to provide instructions or approvals upon a request from the Founders within a reasonable timeframe, unless such Founder has acted in a grossly negligent or willful manner.
(e)    In the event of an Adverse Ruling Determination to the effect that the Merger will cause a Founder to recognize a gain upon the Merger or the determination by the applicable tax Governmental Authority that it will not issue a favorable ruling in connection with a Founder Ruling Request to the effect that the Merger does not cause the respective Founder to recognize a gain upon the Merger, upon a written request by such Founder therefor, HoldCo shall (and, to the extent within their respective power to do so, Expedia and the Founders shall cause HoldCo to), to the extent permitted by law, exercise its election right pursuant to Section 21 (1) sentence 2 RTA (regardless of whether such exercise is valid or not) with respect to any Company shares potentially deemed to have been contributed by such Founder to HoldCo as a result of this Agreement (the “Protective Election”), provided that such Founder provides HoldCo in writing with specific instructions (including appropriate language) as to the exercise of such election right. HoldCo shall not be obligated to record such Company shares in its German tax balance sheet. A breach by HoldCo of its obligations under this Section 2.7 (e) shall not give rise to a claim of a Founder for damages against HoldCo unless HoldCo has acted in a grossly negligent or willful manner.
(f)    Upon requesting a Protective Election, the applicable Founder shall timely file valid notifications under Section 22 (3) RTA as if the Company shares had been actually contributed to HoldCo in a transaction pursuant to Section 21 (1) RTA. Within ten (10) business days of receiving a written request for a Protective Election, HoldCo shall (and, to the extent within their respective power to do so, Expedia and the Founders shall cause HoldCo to) provide such Founder with copies of all documents as were reasonably requested by him to prepare such notifications under Section 22 (3) RTA. If a Founder fails to timely file valid notifications under Section 22 (3) RTA as and when required hereby, such Founder shall indemnify HoldCo for any losses suffered by it as a result of such failure.
