6.           RELEASE REQUIRED. Any amounts payable or benefits provided pursuant to this Agreement (other than amounts payable pursuant to Section 3(a) or Section 3(d) of this Agreement) shall only be payable if (a) the Executive executes and delivers to the Company (and does not revoke) a general release of claims of the Company in a form substantially similar to the form attached as Exhibit A hereto (the “Release”), and (b) such Release becomes irrevocable within fifty-five (55) days following the date of the Qualifying Termination.


7.           FULL SETTLEMENT; NO MITIGATION. The Company’s obligation to make any payments provided for in this Agreement and otherwise to perform its obligations hereunder shall be in lieu of and in full settlement of all other severance or similar payments to the Executive under any other severance or employment agreement between the Executive and the Company, any severance plan of the Company and any statutory entitlement (including notice of termination, termination pay and/or severance pay). The Company’s obligations hereunder shall not be affected by any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other claim, right or action which the Company may have against the Executive or others. In no event shall the Executive be obligated to seek other employment or take other action by way of mitigation of the amounts payable to the Executive under any of the provisions of this Agreement and such amounts shall not be reduced whether or not the Executive obtains other employment.


8.           CLAWBACK PROVISION. Notwithstanding any other provisions in this Agreement to the contrary, in the event that the Company is required to prepare an accounting restatement due to the material noncompliance of the Company with any financial reporting requirement under the securities laws, to the extent required by such laws or government regulations, the Company shall recover from the Executive any such incentive-based compensation (if any) paid to the Executive pursuant to this Agreement during the three (3) year period preceding the date on which the Company is required to prepare the accounting restatement, based on the erroneous data, in excess of what would have been paid to the Executive under the accounting restatement.


9.           COVENANTS. The Executive acknowledges that the Executive’s continued employment with the Company will provide the Executive with access on a continual basis to confidential and proprietary information concerning the Company and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Aceto”), which is not readily available to the public and that the Company would not enter into this Agreement but for the covenants (the “Restrictive Covenants”) contained in this Section 9. The Company and the Executive acknowledge and agree that nothing in this Agreement is intended to, and this Agreement shall not, in any way prohibit, limit or otherwise interfere with the Executive’s protected rights under federal, state or local law to, without notice to the Company: (i) communicate or file a charge with a government regulator; (ii) participate in an investigation or proceeding conducted by a government regulator; or (iii) receive an award paid by a government regulator for providing information.
