References to “this Agreement” shall include all Exhibits, Schedules, and other agreements, instruments or other documents attached hereto. The words “herein,” “hereof,” “hereby,” “hereunder,” and words of similar import refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular subdivision unless expressly so limited. References in this Agreement to Articles, sections, Schedules, or Exhibits are to Articles or sections of, Schedules or Exhibits to, this Agreement, except to the extent otherwise specified herein. References to the consent or approval of any party hereto mean the written consent or approval of such party, which may be withheld, conditioned or delayed in such party’s sole and absolute discretion, except to the extent otherwise specified herein.

The headings of the sections, paragraphs and subsections of this Agreement are inserted for convenience only, are not part of this Agreement and do not in any way limit or modify the provisions of this Agreement and shall not affect the interpretation hereof. Unless otherwise specified herein, payments that are required to be made under this Agreement shall be paid by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated in advance by the party entitled to receive such payment. All references to “dollars” or “$” or “US$” in this Agreement means U.S. dollars.
