(c) At the Closing, the Parent shall deliver an amount equal to the aggregate Per Option Closing Merger Consideration for all Unvested Time Options (such amount, the "Optionholder Escrow Amount") in immediately available funds into a separate escrow account (the "Optionholder Escrow Account"), such account to be established and maintained by the Escrow Agent pursuant to the Escrow Agreement (and which agreement, in any event, shall require that, prior to each payment from the Optionholder Escrow Account to any Option Holder or Parent (in the case of a Forfeited Restricted Cash Award), the Escrow Agent shall have first received a joint written instruction from Parent and the Representative to pay the applicable Option Holder or Parent (as applicable) the applicable amount in respect of such Option Holder's Restricted Cash Award or Forfeited Restricted Cash Award (as applicable)). Subject to Section 2.12 and Section 2.13 below, the aggregate Per Option Closing Merger Consideration payable to a holder of Unvested Time Options immediately prior to the Effective Time shall be paid to (i) the applicable Option Holder from the Optionholder Escrow Account on the first regularly scheduled payroll date following the date on which the applicable portion of such holder's Restricted Cash Award vests in accordance with the applicable award agreement and (ii) Parent from the Optionholder Escrow Account within five (5) Business Days following the date on which the applicable portion of the Restricted Cash Awards held by such holder is forfeited by the holder under the terms of the applicable award agreement.

(d) At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger, without any action on the part of any Option Holder and pursuant to the terms of the Option Plan, each Unvested Performance Option shall be cancelled and terminated with no payment due thereon, and all rights in respect of each such Unvested Performance Option shall forthwith cease to exist.

(e) The Company shall take such steps as of or cause to be taken all actions necessary to terminate the Option Plan as of the Effective Time. For the avoidance of doubt, the Restricted Cash Awards shall remain outstanding pursuant to their terms following the Effective Time.

2.4 Exchange of Common Stock; Paying Agent. Parent shall cause a paying agent selected by Parent and reasonably acceptable to the Representative (the "Paying Agent") to effect the exchange of cash for the shares of Common Stock that are outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time (including shares of Common Stock received pursuant to Section 2.3(a)) and entitled to payment pursuant to Section 2.2 as specified in the Allocation Schedule. In connection with such exchange, by no later than five Business Days prior to the Closing Date (unless such five Business Day period is waived or shortened by the Representative), Parent shall cause the Paying Agent to provide each holder of Common Stock with a Letter of Transmittal, substantially in the form of Exhibit F attached hereto, with such changes as may be required by the Paying Agent and reasonably acceptable to Parent and the Representative (a "Letter of Transmittal") and each holder of Vested Options with a Letter of Transmittal for the shares to be received pursuant to Section 2.3(a). Prior to the Closing Date, the Paying Agent and Parent shall enter into a Paying Agent Agreement in form reasonably acceptable to the Representative (the "Paying Agent Agreement").

23


At the Closing, Parent shall transfer to the Paying Agent via wire transfer of immediately available funds, cash in an amount equal to the Closing Payment Amount. Parent shall cause the Paying Agent to hold such funds and deliver them in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof and the terms and conditions of the Paying Agent Agreement. Each such holder of Common Stock outstanding as of immediately prior to the Effective Time shall deliver to the Paying Agent, a duly executed and completed Letter of Transmittal and after the Effective Time, Parent shall cause the Paying Agent to promptly deliver or cause to be delivered to such holder a wire transfer in an amount equal to the amount of cash to which such holder is entitled under Section 2.2 to the accounts designated by such holder in such holder's Letter of Transmittal; provided, that Parent shall cause the Paying Agent to deliver or cause to be delivered such amounts at the Closing to any holder of Common Stock that has delivered a duly executed and completed Letter of Transmittal to the Paying Agent at least two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date. In no event shall any Stockholder who delivers a Letter of Transmittal be entitled to receive interest on any of the funds to be received in the Merger. All fees and expenses of the Paying Agent shall be paid by Parent. Any shares of Common Stock held by a holder thereof that has delivered a Letter of Transmittal to the Company pursuant to this Section 2.4 shall not be transferable on the books of the Company without Parent's prior written consent. At the Effective Time (after giving effect to the transactions in Section 2.3(a)), the share transfer books of the Company shall be closed, and thereafter there shall be no further registration of transfers of Common Stock theretofore outstanding on the records of the Company. From and after the Effective Time, the holders of the shares of Common Stock (including shares of Common Stock received pursuant to Section 2.3(a)) outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Time shall cease to have any rights with respect thereto except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or by Law. On or after the Effective Time, any shares of Common Stock presented to the Surviving Company or Parent for any reason shall be converted into the consideration payable in respect thereof pursuant to Section 2.2 without any interest thereon. Any portion of the funds held by the Paying Agent pursuant to this Agreement that remains undistributed to the holders of Company Stock twelve (12) months after the Effective Time shall be delivered to the Surviving Company, upon demand, and any Stockholder that has not previously complied with this Section 2.4 prior to the end of such twelve (12) month period shall thereafter look only to the Surviving Company for payment of its claim for the applicable portion of the Closing Merger Consideration in respect of such Common Stock. Notwithstanding the foregoing, none of Parent, the Surviving Company or their Affiliates shall be liable to any Stockholder for any amount paid to any public official pursuant to applicable abandoned property, escheat, or similar Laws. Any amount remaining unclaimed by Stockholders three (3) years after the date on which such funds were delivered to the Paying Agent pursuant to this Section 2.4 shall become, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, the property of the Surviving Company free and clear of any claims or interest of any Person previously entitled thereto.

24

2.5 Representative Amount. At the Closing, Parent shall deliver to the Representative (on behalf of the Securityholders), by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account(s) designated by the Representative at least two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, $[Redacted dollar amount] to satisfy potential future obligations of the Representative and/or the Securityholders to the Representative, including expenses of the Representative arising from the defense or enforcement of any claims hereunder (the "Representative Amount"). The Representative Amount shall be retained in whole or in part by the Representative until the Representative reasonably determines that, in its sole and absolute discretion, the Representative Amount is no longer required to be withheld. If the Representative shall, pursuant to the terms hereof, return all or any portion of the Representative Amount to the Securityholders, it shall promptly distribute to each Securityholder its Pro Rata Share thereof; provided, that to the extent a Securityholder was a holder of Unvested Time Options as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, the Representative may deposit with the Surviving Company any portion of such amount payable to such holder in respect of its Unvested Time Options, and Parent shall cause the Surviving Company to distribute such amount to each such Securityholder through the Surviving Company's payroll system (or directly by the Surviving Company in respect of any Unvested Time Options held by an individual other than a current or former employee of the Company) on the first regularly scheduled payroll date of the Surviving Company following the time such time vesting hurdles are achieved. For all Tax purposes, the Representative Amount shall be treated as having been received and voluntarily set aside by the Securityholders at the time of Closing, after any withholding required by applicable Tax Law; provided, that any such withholding shall be applied against amounts payable to the Option Holders hereunder on the Closing Date and not against the Representative Amount. The Representative is not providing any investment supervision, recommendations or advice and shall have no responsibility or liability for any loss of principal of the Representative Amount other than as a result of its gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Representative is not acting as a withholding agent or in any similar capacity in connection with the Representative Amount, and has no tax reporting or income distribution obligations hereunder.

2.6 Organizational Documents. At the Effective Time, by virtue of the Merger and without any action on the part of Parent, Merger Sub, the Company or the holders of any shares of capital stock of any of the foregoing, the certificate of incorporation of the Surviving Company shall be amended and restated in its entirety in accordance with the provisions thereof and the DGCL. At the Effective Time, the bylaws of the Surviving Company shall be amended and restated in accordance with the provisions of the certificate of incorporation of the Surviving Company and the DGCL.

2.7 Directors and Officers. From and after the Effective Time, until successors are duly elected, appointed or otherwise designated in accordance with applicable Law, the directors of Merger Sub at the Effective Time shall be the directors of the Surviving Company, and the officers of the Company at the Effective Time shall be the officers of the Surviving Company, each such initial director and initial officer to hold office in accordance with the certificate of incorporation and bylaws of the Surviving Company as in effect from and after the Effective Time.

2.8 Closing Calculations. Not less than five Business Days prior to the anticipated Closing Date (or such shorter period of time as agreed to by Parent), the Company shall prepare and deliver to Parent a statement (the "Estimated Closing Statement") setting forth (a) a good faith calculation of the Company's estimate of Closing Cash (the "Estimated Cash"), Surplus Amount (the "Estimated Surplus Amount"), Company Indebtedness (the "Estimated Company

25

Indebtedness"), Closing Net Working Capital (the "Estimated Net Working Capital"), Transaction Tax Benefits (the "Estimated Transaction Tax Benefits") and Company Transaction Expenses ("Estimated Transaction Expenses"), each as of the Adjustment Time, and in each case with reasonable documentation, (b) based thereon, the Closing Merger Consideration and the aggregate Per Option Closing Merger Consideration, and (c) a duly completed Allocation Schedule. The Estimated Closing Statement and the determinations contained therein shall be prepared in accordance with the definitions set forth in this Agreement, the Accounting Principles and the SAP Accounting Principles, as applicable, and (i) in the case of the Estimated Net Working Capital, in a manner consistent with the Working Capital Schedule in Exhibit A, (ii) in the case of the Estimated Transaction Tax Benefits, in a manner consistent with the example set forth on Exhibit C and (iii) in the case of the Estimated Surplus Amount, in a manner consistent with the example set forth on Exhibit D. The Company shall provide Parent with a reasonable opportunity to review and comment on the Estimated Closing Statement and the components thereof and the Company shall consider in good faith any reasonable comments made in good faith that Parent provides and delivers to the Company in writing no later than the Business Day immediately prior to the Closing Date. To the extent that the Company accepts (in its sole and absolute discretion) any such reasonable comments, the Company shall deliver a revised Estimated Closing Statement to Parent prior to the Closing Date reflecting such accepted comments, which shall be the Estimated Closing Statement for purposes of this Agreement. In the event that (A) Parent does not deliver a written notice of its comments no later than the Business Day immediately prior to the Closing Date, or (B) the Company does not agree with any of the proposed comments by Parent in such notice, then the Estimated Closing Statement delivered by the Company shall be the Estimated Closing Statement for purposes of this Agreement.

2.9 Final Closing Balance Sheet Calculation. Within 90 days after the Closing Date, Parent shall deliver to the Representative a statement (the "Closing Statement") setting forth (a) a consolidating balance sheet of the DQ Companies (other than the SAP Subsidiaries) in accordance with the Accounting Principles and a consolidating balance sheet of the SAP Subsidiaries in accordance with the SAP Accounting Principles, in each case as of the Adjustment Time (the "Closing Balance Sheet"), (b) the Closing Cash, Surplus Amount, Company Indebtedness, Closing Net Working Capital, Transaction Tax Benefits and Company Transaction Expenses, each as of the Adjustment Time and (c) based thereon, the Final Merger Consideration, in each case, together with reasonable documentation. The Closing Balance Sheet and Closing Statement shall be prepared, and Closing Cash, Surplus Amount, Company Indebtedness, Closing Net Working Capital, Transaction Tax Benefits and Company Transaction Expenses shall be determined in accordance with the definitions set forth in this Agreement, the Accounting Principles and SAP Accounting Principles, as applicable, and (i) in the case of the Closing Net Working Capital, in a form consistent with the Working Capital Schedule in Exhibit A, (ii) in the case of the Transaction Tax Benefits, in a form consistent with the example set forth on Exhibit C and (iii) in the case of the Surplus Amount, in a form consistent with the example set forth on Exhibit D. After delivery of the Closing Statement, the Representative and its accountants and other representatives shall be permitted reasonable access at reasonable times to review the Surviving Company's and its Subsidiaries' books and records and any work papers (subject to executing any required access letters) related to the preparation of the Closing Statement. The Representative and its accountants and other representatives may make inquiries of Parent, the Surviving Company, its Subsidiaries and their respective accountants and employees regarding questions concerning or disagreements with the Closing Statement arising in the course of their review thereof, and Parent shall, and shall

26

use commercially reasonable efforts to cause any such accountants and employees of the Surviving Company and its Subsidiaries to, cooperate with and respond to such inquiries. If the Representative has any objections to the Closing Statement, the Representative may deliver to Parent a statement setting forth its objections thereto (the "Objections Statement"), which Objections Statement shall describe the nature of any such objection in reasonable detail and identify the specific items involved and, if determinable, the dollar amount of such disagreement. If the Objections Statement is not delivered to Parent within 45 days following the date of delivery of the Closing Statement, the Closing Statement shall be final, binding and non-appealable by the Parties. The Representative and Parent shall negotiate in good faith to resolve any such objections, but if they do not reach a final resolution within 15 days after the delivery of the Objections Statement, the Representative and Parent shall submit such dispute to KPMG (the "Independent Accounting Firm"). In the event the parties submit any unresolved disputed items to the Independent Accounting Firm, to the extent permitted by the engagement letter with the Independent Accounting Firm, each party will submit a statement together with such supporting documentation as it deems appropriate, to the Independent Accounting Firm within fifteen (15) days after the date on which such unresolved disputed items were submitted to the Independent Accounting Firm for resolution, it being agreed that the parties will make their respective submissions contemporaneously on a date and in a manner directed by the Independent Accounting Firm, and with a copy sent simultaneously and in the same manner to the other party. The Independent Accounting Firm shall consider only those items and amounts that are identified in the Objections Statement as being items which the Representative and Parent are unable to resolve. The Independent Accounting Firm's determination shall be based solely on the definitions of Closing Cash, Surplus Amount, Company Indebtedness, Closing Net Working Capital, Transaction Tax Benefits and Company Transaction Expenses contained herein and the provisions of this Agreement and the Accounting Principles and SAP Accounting Principles, as applicable, including this Section 2.9. The Representative and Parent shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to cause the Independent Accounting Firm to resolve all disagreements as soon as practicable. Further, the Independent Accounting Firm's determination shall be based solely on the presentations by Parent and the Representative that are in accordance with the terms and procedures set forth in this Agreement (i.e., not on the basis of an independent review). The resolution of the dispute by the Independent Accounting Firm shall be final and binding on and non-appealable by the Parties hereto. The costs and expenses of the Independent Accounting Firm shall be allocated between Parent, on the one hand, and the Representative from the Representative Amount, on the other hand, in the same proportion that the aggregate amount of the disputed items so submitted to the Independent Accounting Firm that is unsuccessfully disputed by each such party (as finally determined by the Independent Accounting Firm) bears to the total disputed amount of such items so submitted. For example, if the Representative claims Closing Net Working Capital is $1,000 greater than the amount determined by Parent, and Parent contests only $500 of the amount claimed by the Representative, and if the Independent Accounting Firm ultimately resolves the dispute by awarding the Representative (for the account of the Securityholders) $300 of the $500 contested, then the costs and expenses of arbitration shall be allocated 60% (i.e., 300 ÷ 500) to Parent and 40% (i.e., 200 ÷ 500) to the Representative (for the account of the Securityholders). In resolving each of items and amounts that are identified in the Objections Statement, the Independent Accounting Firm will be authorized only to determine an amount with respect to a disputed item that is an amount between (and inclusive) of the disputed amounts set forth in the Closing Statement and the Objections Statement. If Parent fails to timely

27

deliver the Closing Statement in accordance with this Section 2.9, then, the Final Merger Consideration shall be deemed to equal the Closing Merger Consideration. After the final Closing Statement has been determined pursuant to this Section 2.9, the Representative shall deliver to Parent an updated Allocation Schedule setting forth the portion of the difference between the Final Merger Consideration and the Closing Merger Consideration, if any, to be paid to each Securityholder pursuant to Section 2.10.

2.10 Post-Closing Adjustment Payment.

(a) If the Final Merger Consideration is greater than the Closing Merger Consideration, (i) Parent and Merger Sub (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Surviving Company following the Closing) shall promptly (but in any event within five Business Days following the final determination of the Final Merger Consideration) pay to (A) the Paying Agent the amount of such difference (less the Optionholder Percentage of the amount of such difference) for distribution to each Securityholder its Pro Rata Share (in respect of any shares of Common Stock and/or Vested Options held by such Securityholder) of the amount of such difference, by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the account designated in writing by the Paying Agent, and (B) the Escrow Agent (for distribution to the holders of the Unvested Time Options in accordance with each such holder's Pro Rata Share of such difference in respect of the Unvested Time Options and Section 2.3(b)) the Optionholder Percentage of the amount of such difference by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the Optionholder Escrow Account, and Parent and the Representative shall cause the Escrow Agent, subject to Section 2.13, to pay each such holder its Pro Rata Share of such difference in respect of Unvested Time Options following each such time as any such Option Consideration related to such holder's Restricted Cash Awards becomes payable to each such holder; provided that in no event shall the amount paid by Parent pursuant to this Section 2.10(a)(i) exceed $[Redacted dollar amount]; and (ii) the Representative and Parent shall promptly (but in any event within five Business Days following the final determination of the Final Merger Consideration) deliver joint written instructions to the Escrow Agent to cause the Escrow Agent to pay to (x) each Securityholder its Pro Rata Share in respect of Common Stock (including Common Stock received pursuant to Section 2.3(a)) of the funds comprising the Adjustment Escrow Amount by wire transfer of immediately available funds, and (y) into the Optionholder Escrow Account (for distribution to the holders of the Unvested Time Options in accordance with each such holder's Pro Rata Share in respect of Unvested Time Options of the funds comprising the Adjustment Escrow Amount and Section 2.3(b)) the Optionholder Percentage of the funds comprising the Adjustment Escrow Amount by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the Optionholder Escrow Account, and the Escrow Agent shall pay each such holder its Pro Rata Share in respect of Unvested Time Options of such funds following each such time as any such Option Consideration related to such holder's Restricted Cash Awards becomes payable to each such holder.

(b) If the Final Merger Consideration is equal to or less than the Closing Merger Consideration, Parent and the Representative (on behalf of the Securityholders) shall promptly (but in any event within five Business Days following the determination of the Final Merger Consideration) deliver a joint written instruction to the Escrow Agent to pay to Parent the absolute value of such difference, if any (the "Shortfall Amount"), by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account designated by Parent to the Representative. The Shortfall Amount shall be paid solely from the funds available in the Adjustment Escrow Account. In the event that the

28

funds available in the Adjustment Escrow Account are in excess of the Shortfall Amount (such excess, the "Adjustment Escrow Excess Amount"), the Representative and Parent shall simultaneously with the delivery of the instructions described in the first sentence of this Section 2.10(b), deliver joint written instructions to the Escrow Agent to pay to (i) each Securityholder its Pro Rata Share (in respect of any shares of Common Stock and/or Vested Options held by such Securityholder) of the Adjustment Escrow Excess Amount, and (ii) into the Optionholder Escrow Account (for distribution to the holders of the Unvested Time Options in accordance with each such holder's Pro Rata Share of the Adjustment Escrow Excess Amount in respect of Unvested Time Options and Section 2.3(b)) the Optionholder Percentage of the Adjustment Escrow Excess Amount by wire transfer of immediately available funds to the Optionholder Escrow Account, and Parent and the Representative shall cause the Escrow Agent, subject to Section 2.13, to pay each such holder its Pro Rata Share in respect of Unvested Time Options of the Adjustment Escrow Excess Amount following each such time as any such Option Consideration related to such holder's Restricted Cash Awards becomes payable to each such holder. The Securityholders and the Representative shall not have any liability for any amounts due pursuant to Section 2.9 or this Section 2.10 except to the extent of the funds comprising the Adjustment Escrow Amount.

(c) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Article II, any amounts that would be payable to a holder of a Restricted Cash Award pursuant to Section 2.5 and Section 2.10 in respect of any portion of such holder's Restricted Cash Awards that become Forfeited Restricted Cash Awards shall instead be paid to Parent as soon as reasonably practicable following the date the applicable Restricted Cash Awards become Forfeited Restricted Cash Awards.

2.11 [Intentionally Omitted]

2.12 Adjustment Escrow Account. At the Closing, Parent shall deliver the sum of $[Redacted dollar amount] (such amount, the "Adjustment Escrow Amount") in immediately available funds into a separate escrow account (the "Adjustment Escrow Account"), such account to be established and maintained by the Escrow Agent pursuant to the terms and conditions of an escrow agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit G attached hereto, with such changes as may be required by the Escrow Agent and reasonably acceptable to Parent and the Representative, to be entered into on the Closing Date by Parent, the Representative and the Escrow Agent (the "Escrow Agreement"). The amount contained in the Adjustment Escrow Account shall serve solely as security for, and the sole and exclusive source of payment of, Parent's rights pursuant to Section 2.10, if any. All fees, costs and expenses of the Escrow Agent shall be paid by Parent.

2.13 Withholding. Each of the Paying Agent, the Surviving Company, the Representative and Parent shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from the consideration otherwise payable to any Person pursuant to this Agreement such amounts as it is required to deduct and withhold with respect to the making of such payment under any provision of Tax Law; provided that at least five Business Days prior to the Closing, or as promptly as practicable thereafter, the Company and Parent shall (a) notify the Representative and Securityholders of any anticipated withholding (other than withholding of Taxes with respect to amounts treated as compensation), (b) consult with the Representative and Securityholders in good faith to determine whether such deduction and withholding is required under applicable Tax Law, and (c) cooperate with the Representative and Securityholders in good faith to minimize the amount of any applicable withholding. The Paying Agent, the Escrow Agent and the Company will cooperate to

29

satisfy any withholding obligations related to any consideration payable to any Person pursuant to this Agreement, to the extent that the Company has any withholding obligations related to such consideration. If the Company, the Paying Agent, the Escrow Agent, the Representative or Parent, as the case may be, so withholds amounts and pays such amounts to the appropriate Taxing Authority, such amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to such Person in respect of which the Surviving Company, the Representative or Parent, as the case may be, made such deduction and withholding.

2.14 ACA Fee. From and after the Closing, Parent shall cause the Surviving Company and each DQ Company to use reasonable best efforts, in a manner consistent with the DQ Companies' Ordinary Course of Business prior to the Closing Date, to collect any receivables of the DQ Companies related to the ACA Fee as of the Adjustment Time. In the event that Parent or its Affiliates (including the Surviving Company or any other DQ Company) receives any amount in respect of such receivables related to the ACA Fee, it shall promptly (and in any event within five (5) Business Days) distribute to each Securityholder its Pro Rata Share thereof; provided, that to the extent a Securityholder was a holder of Unvested Time Options as of immediately prior to the Effective Time, Parent shall cause the Surviving Company to distribute any portion of such amount to each Securityholder through the Surviving Company's payroll system (or directly by the Surviving Company in respect of any Unvested Time Options held by an individual other than a current or former employee of the Company) on the first regularly scheduled payroll date of the Surviving Company following the time such vesting hurdles are achieved.

61

(b) In addition to the other rights provided for in this Section 6.5 and not in limitation thereof, from and after the Closing, Parent will, and will cause the DQ Companies (each, a "D&O Indemnifying Party") to, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, (i) indemnify and hold harmless (and release from any liability to Parent or any DQ Company), the D&O Indemnified Persons against all D&O Expenses (as defined below), losses, claims, damages, judgments or amounts paid in settlement ("D&O Costs") in respect of any threatened, pending or completed Action, whether criminal, civil, administrative or investigative, based on or arising out or relating to the fact that such Person is or was a director or officer of any DQ Company and arising out of acts or omissions occurring on or prior to the Closing (including in respect of acts or omissions in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby) (a "D&O Indemnifiable Claim"), and (ii) advance to such D&O Indemnified Persons all D&O Expenses incurred in connection with any D&O Indemnifiable Claim (including in circumstances where the D&O Indemnifying Party has assumed the defense of such claim) promptly after receipt of reasonably detailed statements therefor; provided, however, that the Person to whom D&O Expenses are to be advanced provides an undertaking to repay such advances if it is ultimately determined that such Person is not entitled to indemnification. Any D&O Indemnifiable Claims will continue until such D&O Indemnifiable Claim is disposed of or all judgments, Orders, decrees or other rulings in connection with such D&O Indemnifiable Claim are fully satisfied. For the purposes of this Section 6.5, "D&O Expenses" will include attorneys' fees and all other costs, charges and expenses paid or incurred in connection with investigating, defending, being a witness in or participating in (including on appeal), or preparing to defend, to be a witness in or participate in any D&O Indemnifiable Claim, but will exclude damages, judgments and amounts paid in settlement (which items are included in the definition of D&O Costs).

(c) Prior to or simultaneously with the Closing, Parent will, or will cause the Company to, obtain, maintain and fully pay (at Parent's sole expense) for irrevocable "tail" insurance policies covering all claims made insurance policies of the DQ Companies that will cease coverage at the Closing as a result of the consummation of the Merger, in each case with a claims period of at least six years from the Closing Date (other than with respect to any cybersecurity "tail" insurance policies, which shall have a claims period of at least two years from the Closing Date) from an insurance carrier with the same or better credit rating as the Company's current insurance carrier with respect to such insurance in an amount and scope, including terms, conditions, levels of coverage and retention, at least as favorable as the Company's existing policies with respect to matters existing or occurring at or prior to the Closing Date. Parent will not, or will cause the Company to not, cancel or change such insurance policies in any respect.

(d) In the event that all or substantially all of the stock or assets of any DQ Company are sold, whether in one transaction or a series of transactions, proper provisions shall be made to ensure that the successors and assigns of any DQ Company assume the obligations set forth in this Section 6.5. The provisions of this Section 6.5(d) will apply to all of the successors and assigns of any DQ Company.

62

(e) The obligations under this Section 6.5 will not be terminated or modified in such a manner as to affect adversely any D&O Indemnified Person to whom this Section 6.5 applies without the consent of such affected D&O Indemnified Person. The provisions of this Section 6.5 are intended for the benefit of, and will be enforceable by (as express third-party beneficiaries), each current and former officer, director or similar functionary of any DQ Company and his or her heirs and representatives, successors and assigns and are in addition to, and not in substitution for, any other rights to indemnification or contribution that any such person may have had by Contract or otherwise.

6.7 Access and Information.

(a) From the date of this Agreement until the Closing, subject to Section 6.6 and to any applicable Laws (including applicable antitrust Laws), the Company shall (i) afford Parent and its authorized representatives ("Parent's Representatives") reasonable access, at Parent's sole cost and expense, during regular business hours and upon reasonable advance notice to the Company, to the DQ Companies, their properties, their Books and Records and to the employees (including employment information with respect to the employees set forth on Schedule 6.7(a)) specified by the Company in connection with each such visit; provided, however, (x) access to such employees will only be available upon reasonable notice to the Company to the attention of and consented to by the Chief Executive Officer or pursuant to Coordinated Planning Activities and (y) any Books and Records or other information that is subject to attorney-client or other legal privilege or obligation of confidentiality or disclosure shall not be made so accessible; provided that the Company shall give Parent notice of any access or examination so withheld and shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to allow for such access or examination in a manner that would not result in a loss of such privilege or conflict with such obligation of confidentiality. Any access shall be conducted (i) under the supervision of the Company's or its Affiliate's personnel, (ii) subject to all of the standard protocols and procedures of the DQ Companies, including the requirement that visitors be escorted at all times, (iii) subject to any additional procedures required

63

Parent acknowledges that it remains bound by the Confidentiality Agreement and that all information it obtains as a result of access under this Section 6.7 shall be subject to the Confidentiality Agreement.

(b) Following the Closing and until the sixth anniversary of the Closing Date, Parent agrees to retain all Books and Records in existence on the Closing Date and to grant to the Representative and its representatives during regular business hours and upon reasonable advance notice to Parent, the right, at the expense of the Representative, (i) to inspect and copy the Books and Records and (ii) to have the relevant personnel made available to them to the extent reasonably requested by the Representative in connection with (A) preparing and filing Tax Returns and/or any Tax inquiry, audit, investigation or dispute and preparation of financial statements or (B) any litigation, audit, dispute, claim or investigation.

Parent shall, at its own expense, file all necessary Tax Returns and other documentation with respect to all such Taxes, fees and charges.

(b) All Tax Returns for the DQ Companies that are due on or prior to the Closing Date shall be prepared in a manner consistent with past practice to the extent permitted by Law. Parent shall prepare or cause to be prepared in a timely manner all Tax Returns required to be filed by the DQ Companies for any Pre-Closing Tax Period that are to be filed after the Closing Date. To the extent any such Tax Return would reasonably be expected to affect the determination of the Transaction Tax Benefits and/or the Pre-Closing Tax Liability Amount or otherwise affect the amounts that the Securityholders are entitled to under this Agreement, Parent shall (i) submit to the Representative for the Representative's review, comment and approval drafts of any such Tax Return at least twenty (20) days with regard to Income Tax Returns and at least ten (10) days with regard to all other Tax Returns, in each case prior to the filing thereof and (ii) consider in good faith all comments provided by the Representative. Parent shall cause all such Tax Returns to be filed by the DQ Companies.

(c) The Representative and Parent shall provide each other with such reasonable cooperation and information as either of them or their respective Affiliates may reasonably request of the other in filing any Tax Return, amended Tax Return or claim for Tax Refund, determining a liability for Taxes or a right to a Tax Refund, or participating in or conducting any contest in respect of Taxes at the cost of the Party making the request. Any information obtained under this Section 6.8(c) shall be kept confidential except as otherwise may be required by applicable Law.

64

(d) Parent shall be a "C corporation" for purposes of the Code and shall cause the Company to (i) join Parent's "consolidated group" (within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1502-1(h)) effective as of the beginning of the date following the Closing Date and (ii) to the extent permitted by applicable Law, treat the Closing Date as the last date of a Tax period of the Company.

(e) After Closing, Parent shall not (and shall cause its Affiliates not to), without the Representative's consent, (i) amend any income Tax Return of the DQ Companies relating to a Pre-Closing Tax Period or (ii) make or change an election that is retroactive to a Pre-Closing Tax Period, in each case, to the extent such action would reasonably be expected to affect the determination of the Transaction Tax Benefits and/or the Pre-Closing Tax Liability Amount, or otherwise affect the amounts that the Securityholders are entitled to under this Agreement, unless Parent determines in good faith that it is required to do so pursuant to applicable Law. If Parent determines that it is so required pursuant to applicable Law, Parent shall notify the Representative and discuss in good faith with the Representative the basis for such determination. Parent shall not, and shall cause its Affiliates not to, without the Representative's consent, make any election pursuant to Section 338 or Section 336(e) of the Code.

Any claims Parent or Merger Sub may have for breach of representation or warranty shall be based solely on the representations and warranties of the Company in Article IV (as modified by the Disclosure Schedules hereto). Parent and Merger Sub acknowledge and agree that none of the DQ Companies, nor the Representative or any of their respective Affiliates nor any other Person has made any representation or warranty, express or implied, as to the accuracy or completeness of any information regarding the DQ Companies, or the transactions contemplated by this Agreement not expressly set forth within this Agreement, and none of Parent, Merger Sub or any of their respective Affiliates or representatives is relying on anything other than the express provisions of this Agreement in entering into this Agreement.

(b) In connection with the investigation by Parent and Merger Sub of the DQ Companies, Parent and Merger Sub have received or may receive from the DQ Companies certain projections, forward-looking statements and other forecasts and certain business plan information.

66

with such uncertainties, and that Parent and Merger Sub are taking full responsibility for making its own evaluation of the adequacy and accuracy of all estimates, projections and other forecasts and plans so furnished to it (including the reasonableness of the assumptions underlying such estimates, projections, forecasts or plans). Accordingly, except for the representations and warranties of the Company in Article IV (as modified by the Disclosure Schedules hereto), Parent and Merger Sub acknowledge that neither the Company nor any Equityholder Party, whether in an individual, corporate or any other capacity, makes any representation, warranty, or other statement with respect to, and Parent and Merger Sub are not relying on, such estimates, projections, forecasts or plans (including the reasonableness of the assumptions underlying such estimates, projections, forecasts or plans), and Parent and Merger Sub agree that neither has relied thereon.

(a) For a period beginning on the Closing Date and continuing thereafter for 12 months (the "Continuation Period"), Parent shall provide, or shall cause the DQ Companies to provide, each employee of the DQ Companies as of the Closing Date, for so long as such employee remains an employee of any of the DQ Companies (collectively, "Continuing Employees"), with (i) salary or hourly wage rate and incentive compensation opportunities, with the exception of equity, long-term or retention incentive awards, that are not less than the salary or hourly wage rate and target incentive compensation opportunities provided to such Continuing Employee immediately prior to the Closing Date, and (ii) employee benefits, fringe benefits and perquisites (excluding defined benefit pension, equity, equity-based, change in control and retention benefits), that are comparable, in the aggregate, with the employee benefits, fringe benefits and perquisites provided under the Company Benefit Plans in which such Continuing Employees were eligible to participate immediately prior to the Closing Date. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Parent will provide, or will cause the DQ Companies to provide, severance pay and benefits to any Continuing Employee whose employment is terminated by Parent or the DQ Companies during the Continuation Period on terms and in amounts no less favorable than the severance pay and benefits that would have been applicable to such Continuing Employee under the Company Benefit Plans disclosed on Schedule 4.11(a).

(b) Parent will, and will cause the DQ Companies to, use commercially reasonable efforts to grant all Continuing Employees, for at least the Continuation Period, full credit (without duplication) for all service with the DQ Companies (or predecessor employers to the extent the DQ Companies provide such past service credit) prior to the Closing Date for purposes of eligibility, coverage, vesting, benefit accrual (other than (i) benefit accruals under a defined benefit pension plan and (ii) vesting under any equity or long-term incentive plan established or maintained by Parent or its Affiliates (that is not a Company Benefit Plan prior to the date hereof)) and determining the level of vacation and severance benefits under any benefit or compensation plan, program, policy or agreement which, in the sole discretion of Parent (subject to Section 6.11(a)), are made available to Continuing Employees on or after the Closing Date occurs (collectively, the "New Plans") to the same extent such service was recognized immediately prior to the Closing Date by the DQ Companies.

(c) Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to confer on any Person, other than the Parties, their successors and permitted assigns, any right to enforce the provisions of this Section 6.11 or be construed as an establishment, amendment or termination of any Company

67

Benefit Plan or any employee benefit plan maintained by Parent or its Affiliates. In addition, nothing expressed or implied in this Section 6.11 shall confer upon any of the employees of the DQ Companies or any other Person any additional rights or remedies, including any additional right to employment, or continued employment for any specified period, of any nature or kind whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement. Without limitation to the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement shall require Parent, any Affiliate of Parent, or the DQ Companies to make available to any Person employed by any DQ Company any specific or specific-level of health insurance or other insurance, severance, vacation, pension, compensation, or other benefits provided to Persons employed by Parent or its Affiliates; provided that it otherwise complies with its obligations pursuant to Section 6.11(a).

(d) From the date of this Agreement until the Closing, the DQ Companies shall provide (i) Parent and its representatives reasonable access to employees at the level of senior vice president and above and (ii) upon the written request of Parent, an updated Employee Census File on a reasonably periodic basis (but no more frequent than once every 30 days); provided, however, that the exchanging of such information and the providing of such access shall be subject in all respects to applicable Laws regarding the safeguarding of data privacy.

6.12 WARN Act. In any termination or layoff of any Company Employee by Parent or the Company on or within 60 days after the Closing, Parent and the Company will comply fully, if applicable, with the WARN Act and all other applicable Laws, including those prohibiting discrimination and requiring notice to employees. Parent shall not, and shall cause the Surviving Company not to, at any time prior to 60 days after the Closing Date, effectuate a "plant closing" or "mass layoff" as those terms are defined in the WARN Act affecting in whole or in part any facility, site of employment, operating unit or employee of the Company without complying fully with the requirements of the WARN Act. Parent will bear the cost of compliance with (or failure to comply with) any such Laws. The Company shall provide Parent as soon as reasonably practicable following the Closing, a complete list of employees who experienced an employment loss or layoff as defined in the WARN Act within 90 days prior to the Closing.

6.13 Release. Effective as of the Closing, each of Parent, Merger Sub, the DQ Companies (each a "Releasor"), and their respective Affiliates, successors and assigns, hereby fully and unconditionally releases, acquits and forever discharges the current and former managers and directors of the DQ Companies, the Representative, each Equityholder Party and their respective Affiliates, and their respective Affiliates' former, current and future equityholders, controlling persons, directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, Affiliates, members, managers, general or limited partners, or assignees (or any former, current or future equityholder, controlling person, director, officer, employee, agent, representative, Affiliate, member, manager, general or limited partner, or assignee of any of the foregoing) (each a "Releasee") from any and all manner of actions, causes of actions, claims, obligations, demands, damages, judgments, debts, dues and suits of every kind, whether known or unknown, whether at Law or in equity, arising out of or relating to or accruing from their relationship with or ownership of the DQ Companies prior to the Closing, the nature and description whatsoever which such Releasor or its heirs, legal representatives, successors or assigns ever had, now has or may have on or by reason of any matter, cause or thing whatsoever, arising out of or relating to any circumstance, agreement, activity, action, omission, event or matter occurring or existing, in each case, prior to the date of the Closing, except (i) rights or remedies in the case of Fraud and (ii) any rights of such Releasor pursuant to this Agreement, a Company Document or a Parent Document (collectively, "Released Claims"). Each Releasor agrees not to, and agrees to cause its respective Affiliates and Subsidiaries not to, assert any Released Claim against the Releasees.

68

6.14 280G Matters. The Company shall request that each Person (each, a "Disqualified Individual") to whom any payment or benefit is required or proposed to be made in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement that would constitute "parachute payments" under Section 280G(b)(2) of the Code ("Section 280G Payments") execute a written agreement waiving such Disqualified Individual's right to receive some or all of such payment or benefit (the "Waived Benefits"), to the extent necessary so that all remaining payments and benefits applicable to such Disqualified Individual shall not be deemed a parachute payment, and accepting in substitution for the Waived Benefits the right to receive the Waived Benefits only if approved by the Stockholders of the Company in a manner that complies with Section 280G(b)(5)(B) of the Code. In connection with the foregoing, Parent shall provide the Company with all information reasonably necessary to allow the Company to determine whether any payments made or to be made or benefits granted or to be granted pursuant to any employment agreement or other agreement, arrangement or Contract entered into or negotiated by Parent or its Affiliates with a Disqualified Individual ("Parent Payments"), together with all Section 280G Payments, could reasonably be considered to be "parachute payments" within the meaning of Section 280G(b)(2) of the Code at least 15 Business Days prior to the Closing Date (and shall further provide any such updated information as is reasonably necessary prior to the Closing Date). Prior to the Closing, the Company shall submit the Waived Benefits of each Disqualified Individual who has executed a waiver in accordance with this Section 6.14 for approval of the Company's Stockholders and such Disqualified Individual's right to receive the Waived Benefits shall be conditioned upon receipt of the requisite approval by the Company's Stockholders in a manner that complies with Section 280G(b)(5)(B) of the Code; provided, that in no event shall this Section 6.14 be construed to require the Company (or any of its Affiliates) to compel any Disqualified Individual to waive any existing rights under any Contract or agreement that such Disqualified Individual has with the Company, any Subsidiary of the Company or any other Person, and in no event shall the Company (or any of its Affiliates) be deemed in breach of this Section 6.14 if any such Disqualified Individual refuses to waive any such rights or if the Stockholders fail to approve any Waived Benefits. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 6.14 or otherwise in this Agreement, to the extent Parent has provided inaccurate information, or the Parent's omission of information has resulted in inaccurate information, with respect to any Parent Payments, there shall be no breach of the covenant contained herein to the extent caused by such inaccurate or omitted information. The Company shall provide Parent and its counsel with a copy of the waiver agreement and the disclosure statement contemplated by this Section 6.14 within a reasonable time prior to delivery to each Disqualified Individual and the Stockholders of the Company of such waiver agreement and disclosure statement, respectively, and the Company shall consider in good faith any changes reasonably requested by Parent or its counsel.

6.15 No Control of Other Party's Business. Except as set forth in this Agreement, nothing shall give Parent, directly or indirectly, the right to control or direct the DQ Companies' business or operations prior to the Closing and, prior to the Closing, the Company shall exercise, consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, complete control and supervision over its and the Company's Subsidiaries' respective operations.

69

6.16 R&W Insurance. The R&W Insurance Policy shall provide that the insurer shall have no, and shall waive and not pursue any and all, subrogation rights against the Securityholders and their Affiliates except in the case of Fraud, and the Parties acknowledge and agree that the Representative shall have the authority to enforce such waiver. From and after the Closing, Parent shall not (and shall cause its Affiliate not to) amend the R&W Insurance Policy in any manner adverse to the Securityholders or their Affiliates (including any amendment to the subrogation provisions of the R&W Insurance Policy).

6.17 Intercompany Accounts. On or prior to the Closing, the Company shall cause all intercompany accounts between CareQuest Institute for Oral Health, Inc. and its Affiliates (other than a DQ Company), on the one hand, and any DQ Company, on the other hand, as of the Adjustment Time to be paid-in-full and settled, based on a good faith estimate of the balances of such intercompany accounts.

6.18 Consents. Except as otherwise agreed by the Parties, each Party shall cooperate with the other Parties, and shall cause their Affiliates, to use commercially reasonable efforts to make or obtain any consents to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement that may be required from parties to Contracts to which the DQ Companies are a party prior to the Closing. Each of Parent, on the one hand, and the Company, on the other hand, shall bear its own and its Affiliates' internal costs to obtain such third-party consents. No Party shall be required to pay any fees or expenses in connection with obtaining such third-party consents. No Party shall be required to compromise any right or asset or commence or participate in any Action in order to obtain any such third-party consent. Parent and Merger Sub acknowledge and agree that certain consents to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement may be required from parties to Contracts to which the DQ Companies are a party and such consents may not have been obtained prior to the Closing. Parent and Merger Sub acknowledge and agree that obtaining any such consent shall not be a condition to Closing and no condition to Closing will be deemed not to be satisfied as a result of the failure to obtain any consent or as result of any such default, acceleration or termination or any Action commenced or threatened by or on behalf of any Person arising out of or relating to the failure to obtain any consent or such default, acceleration or termination. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 6.18 shall not apply to regulatory consents, which shall be governed by Section 6.2.

Article VII

7.1 Conditions to Parent's and Merger Sub's Obligations.

(b) The Company shall have performed and complied in all material respects with all obligations and agreements required by this Agreement to be performed or complied with by it on or prior to the Closing Date;

(c) The Company shall have delivered to Parent an officer's certificate of the Company certifying that the conditions set forth in Section 7.1(a) and Section 7.1(b) have been met;

Parent and Merger Sub may not rely on the failure of any condition set forth in this Section 7.1 if such failure was caused by Parent's or Merger Sub's failure to comply with any provision of this Agreement.

7.2 Conditions to the Company's Obligations. The obligations of the Company to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are subject to the fulfillment on the Closing Date of each of the following conditions (any or all of which may be waived by the Company in whole or in part to the extent permitted by applicable Law):

If the Closing occurs, all Closing conditions set forth in this Section 7.2 that have not been fully satisfied as of the Closing shall be deemed to have been waived by the Company. The Company may not rely on the failure of any condition set forth in this Section 7.2 if such failure was caused by the Company's failure to comply with any provision of this Agreement.

Article VIII

SURVIVAL

8.1 Survival. Except in the case of Fraud by the Person committing Fraud, each and every representation and warranty contained in this Agreement, any Company Document and in any other certificate or instrument delivered pursuant to this Agreement shall expire as of, and shall not survive, the Closing and none of the Securityholders or any of their Affiliates or any of their respective managers, directors (or equivalent), officers, employees, stockholders, partners, members or representatives shall have any liability whatsoever (whether based on contract, tort or any other theory of law) with respect to any such representation or warranty.

72

Article IX

TERMINATION

9.1 Termination of Agreement. This Agreement may be terminated at any time prior to the Closing:

(a) by Parent or the Company, if the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall not have been consummated on or prior to July 1, 2022 (such date, the "Outside Date") and the Party seeking to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9.1(a) shall not have (provided that if such Party is Parent, neither Parent nor Merger Sub shall have) breached its obligations under this Agreement in any manner that shall have proximately caused the failure to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement on or before the Outside Date; provided, however, that if, as of July 1, 2022, the waiting period applicable to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement under the HSR Act shall not have expired or otherwise been terminated, or the approvals from Governmental Bodies listed on Schedule 7.1(g) or Schedule 7.2(f) shall not have been obtained, but all of the other conditions to the Closing shall have been satisfied or shall be capable of being satisfied, either the Company or Parent may, upon written notice to the other, extend the Outside Date to a date not later than October 3, 2022, which date shall thereafter be deemed to be the Outside Date for purposes of this Agreement; provided, further, that if any Party brings any Action pursuant to Section 10.11 to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions hereof, the Outside Date shall automatically be extended pursuant to Section 10.11;

(b) by mutual written consent of the Company and Parent;

(c) by the Company or Parent if there shall be in effect a final nonappealable Order of a Governmental Body of competent jurisdiction restraining, enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby;

(d) by Parent, if there has been a violation or breach by the Company of any covenant, agreement, representation or warranty contained in this Agreement which if not cured, would cause a condition to the obligations of Parent and Merger Sub at the Closing not to be satisfied, and such violation or breach has not been waived by Parent or cured by the Company within 30 days after receipt by the Company of written notice thereof from Parent; provided, however, that Parent may not terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9.1(d) at any time during which Parent or Merger Sub is in breach of this Agreement such that the Company has the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.1(e); or

(e) by the Company, if there has been a violation or breach by Parent or Merger Sub of any covenant, agreement, representation or warranty contained in this Agreement which if not cured, would cause a condition to the obligations of the Company at the Closing not to be satisfied, and such violation or breach has not been waived by the Company or cured by Parent within 30 days after receipt by Parent of written notice thereof from the Company (provided that the failure to deliver the Closing Merger Consideration as and when required hereunder shall not be subject to cure hereunder); provided, however, that the Company may not terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9.1(e) at any time during which the Company is in breach of this Agreement such that Parent has the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 9.1(d).

73

9.2 Effect of Termination. In the event this Agreement is terminated by either Parent or the Company as provided in Section 9.1, the provisions of this Agreement shall immediately become void and of no further force and effect (other than the last two sentences of Section 6.7(a), this Section 9.2, and Article X hereof which shall survive the termination of this Agreement), and there shall be no liability on the part of Parent, Merger Sub, the Company, the Representative or the Securityholders to one another; provided that nothing herein shall relieve any party from liability for any Willful Breach of this Agreement (it being acknowledged and agreed by the parties that the failure by Parent to consummate the Closing as and when required hereunder shall be deemed to be a Willful Breach of this Agreement). The Company may, on behalf of itself and the Securityholders, petition a court to award damages in connection with any breach by Parent and/or Merger Sub of the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, and Parent agrees that such damages shall not be limited to reimbursement of expenses or out-of-pocket costs, but may include the benefit of the bargain lost by the Securityholders (taking into consideration relevant matters, including other transaction or combination opportunities and the time value of money) ("Damages"). The Company may, additionally, on behalf of the Securityholders, enforce such award and accept Damages for such breach. No termination of this Agreement shall affect the obligations contained in the Confidentiality Agreement, all of which obligations shall survive termination of this Agreement in accordance with their terms. The terms of the Confidentiality Agreement shall continue to survive any termination of this Agreement.

Article X

MISCELLANEOUS

10.1 Press Releases and Communications. No press release or public announcement related to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated herein shall be issued or made by any Party without the joint approval of Parent and the Representative, except (a) such release or announcement as required by Law, in which case Parent and the Representative shall have the right to review such press release, announcement or communication prior to issuance, distribution or publication, and (b) that any DQ Company shall be permitted to make announcements from time to time to the respective employees, customers, suppliers and other business relations of the DQ Companies and otherwise as the Company may reasonably determine is necessary to comply (or cause any other DQ Company to comply) with applicable Law or the requirements of any Contract to which any DQ Company is a party or is otherwise bound. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the DQ Shareholder Parties may provide information about the subject matter of this Agreement in connection with fundraising, marketing, informational, transactional or reporting activities of investment funds managed or advised, directly or indirectly, by a DQ Shareholder Party or any of its Affiliates and nothing contained herein shall limit or restrict the right of the Company, Parent, the Representative or any of their respective Affiliates in respect of any Action that may arise or be commenced between the Company, or any Securityholder, on the one hand, and Parent or any Affiliate thereof, on the other hand.

10.2 Expenses. Except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, including Section 6.5, Section 6.16 and this Section 10.2, whether or not the transactions contemplated hereby

74

are consummated, all costs and expenses (including any brokerage commissions or any finder's or investment banker's fees and including attorneys' and accountants' fees) incurred in connection with the negotiation and execution of this Agreement and each other agreement, document and instrument contemplated hereby and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby shall be paid by the party incurring such expenses.

10.3 Submission to Exclusive Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process; Waiver of Jury Trial.

(a) The parties hereto hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Delaware Court of Chancery, New Castle County, or to the extent such court declines jurisdiction, first to any federal court, or second to any state court, each located in Wilmington, Delaware (and any appellate court of the foregoing), over any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated hereby and each party hereby irrevocably agrees that all claims in respect of such dispute or any Action related thereto may be heard and determined in such courts. The Parties hereby irrevocably waive, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Law, any objection which they may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any such dispute brought in such court or any defense of inconvenient forum for the maintenance of such dispute. Each of the Parties hereto agrees that a judgment in any such dispute may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by Law.

(b) Each of the Parties hereto hereby consents to process being served by any Party to this Agreement in any Action by delivery of a copy thereof in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.7.

(c) TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED, EACH PARTY HEREBY WAIVES, AND COVENANTS THAT IT WILL NOT ASSERT (WHETHER AS PLAINTIFF, DEFENDANT OR OTHERWISE), ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY FORUM IN RESPECT OF ANY ISSUE, CLAIM, DEMAND, ACTION OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING IN WHOLE OR IN PART UNDER, RELATED TO, BASED ON OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SUBJECT MATTER HEREOF, WHETHER NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING AND WHETHER SOUNDING IN TORT OR CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE. ANY PARTY HERETO MAY FILE AN ORIGINAL COUNTERPART OR A COPY OF THIS SECTION 10.3 WITH ANY COURT AS WRITTEN EVIDENCE OF THE CONSENT OF EACH SUCH PARTY TO THE WAIVER OF ITS RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY.

10.4 Entire Agreement; Amendments and Waivers. This Agreement (including the Schedules and any exhibits hereto) and the Confidentiality Agreement represent the entire understanding and agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof. Any provision of this Agreement or the Disclosure Schedules hereto may be amended or waived only in a writing signed (a) in the case of any amendment, by Parent, the Company (or the Surviving Company following the Closing) and the Representative and (b) in the case of a waiver, by the Party or Parties waiving rights hereunder. No waiver of any provision hereunder or any breach or default thereof shall extend to or affect in any way any other provision or prior or subsequent breach or default. No action taken pursuant to this Agreement, including without limitation, any investigation by or on behalf of any party, shall be deemed to constitute a waiver

75

by the party taking such action of compliance with any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement contained herein. The waiver by any party hereto of a breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a further or continuing waiver of such breach or as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach. No failure on the part of any party to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right, power or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of such right, power or remedy by such party preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or remedy. Furthermore, the parties each hereby acknowledge that this Agreement embodies the justifiable expectations of sophisticated parties derived from arm's-length negotiations; all parties to this Agreement specifically acknowledge that no party has any special relationship with another party that would justify any expectation beyond that of an ordinary buyer and an ordinary company in an arm's-length transaction.

10.5 Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Nothing in this Agreement shall create or be deemed to create any third party beneficiary rights in any Person not a party to this Agreement except (a) after the Closing, the Representative, on behalf of the Securityholders, shall have the right to enforce payment of Closing Merger Consideration or any Additional Merger Consideration, (b) the Non-Recourse Parties shall have the right to enforce their rights under Section 10.10, (c) the D&O Indemnified Persons shall have the right to enforce their respective rights under Section 6.5, (d) the Releasees shall have the right to enforce their rights under Section 6.13 and (e) Ropes & Gray shall have the right to enforce its rights under Section 10.12. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, nothing expressed or referred to in this Agreement shall be construed to give any Person other than the Parties to this Agreement any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or with respect to this Agreement or any provision of this Agreement. No assignment of this Agreement or of any rights or obligations hereunder may be made by any party to this Agreement, directly or indirectly (by operation of law or otherwise), without the prior written consent of the other parties hereto and any attempted assignment without the required consents shall be void. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Parent and Merger Sub may make collateral assignments of its rights (but not obligations) under this Agreement to any lender providing debt financing to Parent or Merger Sub. No assignment of any obligations hereunder shall relieve the parties hereto of any such obligations. Upon any such permitted assignment, the references in this Agreement to such party shall also apply to its assignee unless the context otherwise requires.

10.6 Governing Law. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of this Agreement and the Exhibits and Disclosure Schedules hereto, and all claims or disputes arising hereunder or thereunder in connection herewith or therewith, whether purporting to sound in contract or tort, or at law or in equity, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the Laws of the State of Delaware, without giving effect to any choice of Law or conflict of Law rules or provisions (whether of the State of Delaware or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the Laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Delaware.

10.7 Notices. All notices, demands and other communications to be given or delivered under or by reason of the provisions of this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been given (a) when personally delivered, (b) when transmitted (except if not a Business Day

Any term or provision of this Agreement that is invalid or unenforceable in any situation in any jurisdiction shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining terms and provisions hereof or the validity or enforceability of the offending term or provision in any other situation or in any other jurisdiction. If the final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction declares that any term or provision hereof is invalid or unenforceable, the Parties agree that the court making the determination of invalidity or unenforceability shall have the power to reduce the scope, duration or area of the term or provision, to delete specific words or phrases, or to replace any invalid or unenforceable term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified after the expiration of the time within which the judgment may be appealed.

10.9 No Strict Construction. The language used in this Agreement will be deemed to be the language chosen by the parties hereto to express their mutual intent, and no rule of strict construction will be applied against any Person. The inclusion of information in the Disclosure Schedules shall not be construed as, and shall not constitute, an admission or agreement that a violation, right of termination, default, liability or other obligation of any kind exists with respect to any item, nor shall it be construed as or constitute an admission or agreement that such information is material to any of the DQ Companies. In addition, matters reflected in the Disclosure Schedules are not necessarily limited to matters required by this Agreement to be reflected in the Disclosure Schedules. Such additional matters are set forth for informational purposes only and do not necessarily include other matters of a similar nature. Neither the specifications of any dollar amount in any representation, warranty or covenant contained in this Agreement nor the inclusion of any specific item in the Disclosure Schedules is intended to imply that such amount, or higher or lower amounts, or the item so included or other items, are or are not material, and no Person shall use the fact of the setting forth of any such amount or the inclusion of any such item in any dispute or controversy between the parties as to whether any obligation, item or matter not described herein or included in the Disclosure Schedules is or is not material for purposes of this Agreement. Further, neither the specification of any item or matter in any representation, warranty or covenant contained in this Agreement nor the inclusion of any specific item in the Disclosure Schedules is intended to imply that such item or matter, or other items or matters, are or are not in the Ordinary Course of Business, and no Person shall use the fact of setting forth or the inclusion of any such items or matter in any dispute or controversy between the parties as to whether any obligation, item or matter not described herein or included in the Disclosure Schedules is or is not in the Ordinary Course of Business for purposes of this Agreement.

10.10 No Recourse or Personal Liability. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement or otherwise, the Parties agree on their own behalf and on behalf of their respective Subsidiaries and Affiliates that this Agreement may only be enforced against, and any Action, suit or claim for breach of this Agreement may only be made against, the Parties to this Agreement, and no Non-Recourse Party of a Party shall have any liability relating to this Agreement or any of the transactions contemplated herein (except under the Confidentiality Agreement or any separate agreement or document between any such Person and Parent that contemplates survival following the Closing (to the extent provided therein)).

10.11 Remedies.

(a) Each of the Parties acknowledges that the rights of each Party to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby are unique and recognizes and affirms that in the event of a breach of this Agreement by any Party, money damages would be inadequate and the non-breaching Party would have no adequate remedy at Law. The Parties further agree that irreparable damage would occur in the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement were not performed in accordance with their specific terms or were otherwise breached. It is accordingly agreed that, in addition to, but not in lieu of, any other remedies that may be available upon the breach of any such covenants or agreements (including, without limitation, monetary damages and remedies), each Party shall have the right to injunctive or other equitable relief to restrain a breach or threatened breach of, or otherwise to specific performance of, the other Parties' covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement. Each of the Parties agrees that it shall not oppose the granting of an injunction, specific performance and other equitable relief when expressly available pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, and hereby waives (x) any defenses in any Action for an injunction, specific performance or other equitable relief, including the defense that the other Parties have an adequate remedy at Law or an award of specific performance is not an appropriate remedy for any reason at Law or equity, and (y) any requirement under Law to post a bond, undertaking or other security as a prerequisite to obtaining equitable relief.

(b) The Parties further agree that (i) by seeking any remedy provided for in this Section 10.11, a Party shall not in any respect waive its right to seek any other form of relief that may be available to such Party under this Agreement and (ii) nothing contained in this Section 10.11 shall require any Party to institute any action for (or limit such Party's right to institute any action for) specific performance under this Section 10.11 before exercising any other right under this Agreement.

(c) To the extent any DQ Company brings any Action, claim, complaint or other proceeding, in each case, before any Governmental Body to enforce specifically the performance of the terms and provisions of this Agreement prior to the Closing, the Outside Date shall automatically be extended by (i) the amount of time during which such Action, claim, complaint or other proceeding is pending, plus 20 Business Days, or (ii) such other time period established by the court presiding over such Action, claim, complaint or other proceeding.

10.12 Waiver of Conflicts; Privileged Communications.

(a) It is acknowledged by each of the parties hereto that the Company has retained Ropes & Gray LLP ("Ropes & Gray") to act as its counsel in connection with this

80

Agreement and the agreements and transactions discussed herein and contemplated hereby (the "Current Representation"), and that no other party has the status of a client of Ropes & Gray for conflict of interest or any other purposes as a result thereof.

(b) Each party hereto agrees that after the Closing, Ropes & Gray may represent one or more of the Representative and/or its Affiliates or any of its or their equityholders, partners, members, directors, managers, employees or representatives (any such Person, a "Designated Person") in any matter involving or arising from the Current Representation, including any interpretation or application of this Agreement and the agreements and transactions discussed herein and contemplated hereby, even though the interests of such Designated Person may be directly adverse to Parent, the Company, the Surviving Company or any of their respective Subsidiaries or Affiliates, and even though Ropes & Gray may have represented the Company and its Subsidiaries in a substantially related matter, or may be representing any of the foregoing in ongoing matters.

(c) Each party hereto hereby waives and agrees not to, and Parent agrees to cause the Company (and, after the Effective Time, the Surviving Company) and its Subsidiaries not to, assert (i) any claim that Ropes & Gray has a conflict of interest in the Current Representation and any representation described in Section 10.12(b), and (ii) any confidentiality obligation with respect to any communication between Ropes & Gray and any Designated Person occurring during the Current Representation. Each of the parties acknowledges that its acknowledgments, agreements, consents and/or waivers made under this Section 10.12 are voluntary, made after careful consideration, and made after consultation with counsel or after having been advised that such Person should do so.

(d) Parent and Merger Sub hereby agree that as to all communications (i) whether before, at or after the Closing, between Ropes & Gray and any Designated Person or any of their representatives and (ii) prior to the Closing, between Ropes & Gray and the Company, its Subsidiaries or any of their respective Representatives, in each case, that relate in any way to the Current Representation, the attorney-client privilege and all rights to any other evidentiary privilege, and the protections afforded to information relating to representation of a client under applicable rules of professional conduct, belong to the Representative and may be controlled by the Representative and shall not pass to or be claimed by Parent, Merger Sub, the Company, the Surviving Company or its Subsidiaries or any of their respective Representatives. Without limiting the foregoing, notwithstanding any policy of Parent, Merger Sub, the Company or the Subsidiaries or any agreement between or among the Company, the Subsidiaries or any of their respective Representatives and any Designated Person, whether established or entered into before, at or after the Closing, Parent, Merger Sub, the Company, the Surviving Company or its Subsidiaries shall not review or use for any purpose without the Representative's prior written consent, or seek to compel disclosure to Parent, Merger Sub, the Company, the Surviving Company or its Subsidiaries or any of its Representatives any communication or information (whether written, oral, electronic or in any other medium) described in the previous sentence.

(e) The parties further agree that Ropes & Gray and its partners and employees are intended third-party beneficiaries of this Section 10.12.

81

10.13 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, including by facsimile or PDF file, each of which will be deemed to be an original copy of this Agreement and all of which, when taken together, will be deemed to constitute one and the same agreement.

10.14 Conflict Between Transaction Documents. The parties hereto agree and acknowledge that to the extent any terms and provisions of this Agreement are in any way inconsistent with or in conflict with any term, condition or provision of any other agreement, document or instrument contemplated hereby, this Agreement will govern and control.

10.15 Guarantee.

(a) Sun Life Financial Inc. hereby absolutely, irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees to the Company any and all payment obligations of Parent and Merger Sub under this Agreement (the "Guaranteed Obligations"); provided that the Company shall be entitled to seek specific performance from Sun Life Financial Inc. under this Agreement only with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations (for the avoidance of doubt, including requiring Sun Life Financial Inc. to make payment of the Guaranteed Obligations). This guarantee is an unconditional guarantee of payment and not merely of collection. The Company shall not be bound to pursue or exhaust its recourse against Parent or Merger Sub before first proceeding against Sun Life Financial Inc. hereunder for payment of the Guaranteed Obligations. The Company shall not be obligated to file any claim relating to the Guaranteed Obligations in the event that Parent or Merger Sub becomes subject to a bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, and the failure of the Company to so file shall not affect any of the obligations of Sun Life Financial Inc. hereunder.

(b) Sun Life Financial Inc. hereby represents and warrants to the Company that (i) it is a legal entity duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of organization; (ii) it has all requisite entity power and authority to, and has taken all entity action necessary in order to, execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement and the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement do not contravene any provision of Sun Life Financial Inc.'s organizational documents, any Laws or material contractual restriction binding on Sun Life Financial Inc. or its assets; (iii) all consents, approvals, authorizations, permits of, filings with and notifications to, any Governmental Body necessary for the due execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by Sun Life Financial Inc. have been obtained or made and all conditions thereof have been duly complied with, and no other action by, and no notice to or filing with, any Governmental Body is required in connection with the execution, delivery or performance of this Agreement; and (iv) this Agreement constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of Sun Life Financial Inc. enforceable against Sun Life Financial Inc. in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium and similar laws affecting creditors' rights and remedies generally, and subject, as to enforceability, to general principles of equity, including principles of commercial reasonableness, good faith and fair dealing (regardless of whether enforcement is sought in a proceeding at law or in equity).
