In connection with our mutual interest in having discussions regarding doing business in the context of a collaboration with NOVACAB INC. ( the “transactions”), one or more of the parties to this Agreement (individually called the “Discloser”) is providing to the other party (individually called the “Recipient”) or its Representatives (as defined below) with certain information in connection with the Transaction concerning the Discloser which is either non- public, confidential or proprietary in nature and are providing Recipient with access to certain of Discloser’s executives and advisors. This information previously or hereafter furnished to Recipient or its Representatives, together with analyses, compilations, forecasts, studies or other documents, prepared by Recipient or its Representatives which contain or otherwise reflect such information or Recipient’s review of the affairs of, or interest in, Discloser is hereafter referred to as the "Information". For the purposes of this Agreement, the term "Representatives" means a party’s directors, officers, employees and those of its agents, lawyers, accountants, consultants, bankers and financial advisors that have a need to know the Information for the purpose of evaluating the Transaction. In consideration of Discloser furnishing Recipient with the Information, Recipient agrees that:

  • Confidentiality
     

    The Information will be kept confidential and will not, without Discloser’s prior written consent, be disclosed by Recipient (except to Recipient’s Representatives on the terms described below), or by its Representatives, in any manner whatever, in whole or in part, and shall not be used by Recipient or its Representatives other than in connection with Recipient’s evaluation of the Transaction, except and only to the extent permitted in section 4. Moreover, Recipient agrees that it may reveal the Information only to those of its Representatives who are informed by Recipient of the confidential nature of the Information and who agree to be bound by and act in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Recipient will make and cause its Representatives to make all necessary and appropriate efforts to safeguard the information from disclosure to anyone other than as permitted hereby.

  • Non-disclosure
     

    Without the prior written consent of Discloser, except and only to the extent permitted in section 4, Recipient and its Representatives will not disclose to any person the fact that the Information has been made available, that discussions or negotiations are taking place or have taken place concerning a Transaction or any of the terms, conditions or other facts with respect to any such Transaction, including the status thereof; provided that following a public announcement in respect of a Transaction, Recipient may disclose the fact that Information has been made available to it and the fact that discussions or negotiations have taken place or are taking place in respect of a Transaction but, in so doing, no disclosure of the Information or the substance of the discussions or negotiations shall be made by Recipient. Except as may be otherwise required by law, judicial or governmental order, discovery request, other legal process, or applicable stock exchange requirements, any public notice to third parties and any other public disclosure concerning a Transaction shall be made only with the prior approval of Discloser. In respect of public disclosure required by any Securities regulatory authorities, such disclosure shall be made in consultation with Discloser.

  • Non-Circumvention:
     

    Each Party agrees not to directly or indirectly contact, deal, transact, or otherwise be involved with any corporation, partnership, proprietorships, trust, individuals, or other entities introduced by the other Party without the specific written permission of the introducing Party.

  • Required Disclosure
     

    In the event that Recipient or anyone to whom Recipient transmits the Information pursuant to this Agreement becomes legally compelled to disclose any of the Information, Recipient will provide Discloser with prompt notice so that Discloser may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy and/or waive compliance with the provisions of this Agreement. In the event that such protective order or other remedy is not obtained or Discloser waives compliance with the relevant provisions of this Agreement, Recipient will furnish only that portion of the Information which it is advised by counsel is legally required and will, at Discloser’s request, reasonably cooperate with Discloser’s efforts to obtain reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded to the Information.

  • Return of Information
     

    All copies of the Information (including in writing, or in retrievable electronic or magnetic media, or in any other form), except for that portion of the Information which consists of analyses, require absolute discretion, and shall be returned upon request of the disclosing party.

  • Exception
