ITEM 1.01. ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT

On June 30, 2006, in connection with Cedar Fair, L.P.'s acquisition of five amusement parks previously owned indirectly by CBS Corporation as disclosed in Item 2.01 below, Cedar Fair, L.P. entered into a new $1,895 million bridge credit agreement with Bear Stearns Corporate Lending Inc., as Syndication Agent and Administrative Agent; Wachovia Bank, National Association, as Documentation Agent; and KeyBank National Association, as Collateral Agent (the "Bridge Agreement"). Cedar Fair, L.P. entered into the Bridge Agreement as a form of temporary financing to complete the acquisition and provide an interim source of working capital and with the intention of entering into longer-term financing arrangements as soon as possible. The term of the Bridge Agreement is through August 31, 2006, and Cedar Fair, L.P. intends to enter into an amended and restated credit agreement or similar financing arrangement with the parties set forth above and other financial institutions to provide longer-term financing prior to the termination of the Bridge Agreement. Proceeds from the loans were used to fund the acquisition referred to in Item 2.01, below, to pay the fees and expenses related thereto, to refinance the debt referred to in Item 1.02, below, and for general corporate purposes.

The credit facilities provided under the Bridge Agreement consist of a term loan in the amount of $1,745 million and commitments to make revolving loans of up to $150 million, each bearing interest at either a rate based on the London interbank offered rate plus 2.50% or a rate based on the prime rate announced from time to time by The Bank of New York plus 1.50%. The Bridge Agreement provides for interest-only payments during its term, with all principal and accrued interest due on August 31, 2006. The Bridge Agreement also provides for the issuance of documentary and standby letters of credit in an amount not to exceed $15 million at any time.

The Bridge Agreement and certain interest rate hedge obligations of Cedar Fair, L.P. are guaranteed by each of the subsidiaries of Cedar Fair, L.P. and is secured by a lien and security interest in all of the real and personal property of Cedar Fair, L.P. and each subsidiary, including a pledge of 100% of the stock of existing subsidiaries of Cedar Fair, L.P.

The Bridge Agreement contains certain customary representations and warranties and certain affirmative and negative covenants, including, among others, covenants with respect to the furnishing of financial statements, certificates and other information, the maintenance of entity existence, property and insurance, and limitations on indebtedness, liens, investments and fundamental changes. Financial covenants include a maximum consolidated leverage ratio of 6.75 to 1.00 and a minimum consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of 1.05 to 1.00. Cedar Fair, L.P. and its subsidiaries are restricted from declaring or paying any dividends or distributions (other than dividends or distributions to Cedar Fair, L.P. or another subsidiary of Cedar Fair, L.P.) in excess of $26 million during the term of the Bridge Agreement. Cedar Fair, L.P. and its subsidiaries are also restricted from making or committing to capital expenditures in excess of $30 million in the aggregate during the term of the Bridge Agreement.

 

The Bridge Agreement provides for customary events of default with corresponding grace periods, including, among other things, failure to pay any principal or interest when due, failure to pay material indebtedness or the acceleration thereof, failure to comply with covenants, certain insolvency or receivership events affecting Cedar Fair, L.P. or its subsidiaries, failure in any material respect of any representation or warranty to be true when made or deemed made and the failure of the guarantee of any subsidiary to be in full force and effect.  In the event of a default, the requisite number of lenders (or the Administrative Agent at their request) may declare all amounts owed under the Bridge Agreement immediately due and payable, terminate the lenders commitments to make loans under the Bridge Agreement, and/or exercise any and all remedies and other rights under the Bridge Agreement. 

Certain of the lenders party to the Bridge Agreement, as well as certain of their respective affiliates, have performed, and may in the future perform, for Cedar Fair, L.P. and its subsidiaries, various commercial banking, investment banking, underwriting and other financial advisory services, for which they have received, and will receive, customary fees and expenses.

  3. PURCHASE AND SALE

      1. Purchase and Sale.
        1. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, at the Closing (as defined below), Seller shall sell to Purchaser, and Purchaser shall purchase from Seller, the Paramount Parks Shares.
        2. The total consideration for the sale of the Paramount Parks Shares to Purchaser shall equal:
    1. $1,243,200,000 (the "Base Purchase Price");
    2. minus the amount of Indebtedness of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Holdco, Interco and Newco outstanding immediately prior to the Closing (including the amount required to pay in full all such Indebtedness) but not otherwise included in the Purchase Price under (iv) below ("Closing Debt");
    3. plus all Cash and Cash Equivalents of the Companies and the Company Subsidiaries immediately prior to the Closing ("Closing Cash");
    4. minus $1,000,000 for each day during the month of July 2006 that the Closing is delayed beyond July 1, 2006; and
    5. plus the amount, if any, by which the Adjusted Working Capital Amount as of the close of business on the Closing Date exceeds the Adjusted December 31 Working Capital Amount, or minus the amount, if any, by which the Adjusted December 31 Working Capital Amount exceeds the Adjusted Working Capital Amount as of the close of business on the Closing Date, subject to adjustment as provided in Sections 2.2 and 2.3 (as adjusted, the "Purchase Price").
      1. Estimated Working Capital; Payment of Estimated Purchase Price
      2. . No later than five (5) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, Seller shall deliver to Purchaser a combined balance sheet of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Newco, Holdco and Interco (the "Estimated Closing Balance Sheet") as of the close of business on the Closing Date, estimated in good faith. The Estimated Closing Balance Sheet shall (i) be prepared in accordance with GAAP, applied on a basis consistent with prior periods, and as applied to prepare the Balance Sheet, and (ii) include estimated normal fiscal year-end closing adjustments. The Estimated Closing Balance Sheet shall be accompanied by a report (the "Estimated Adjustment Report") setting forth in reasonable detail (i) the estimated Adjusted Working Capital Amount as of the close of business on the Closing Date as reflected on the Estimated Closing Balance Sheet, (ii) a statement setting forth in reasonable detail the amount of Closing Debt and Closing Cash and (iii) Seller's good faith calculation of the Purchase Price based on the estimated amounts set forth in the Estimated Adjustment Report (the "Estimated Purchase Price"), which report shall be certified by a financial officer of Seller.

        1. At the Closing, and upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, Purchaser shall pay or cause to be paid to Seller the Estimated Purchase Price, by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the bank account designated by Seller in a written notice to Purchaser at least two Business Days before the Closing Date.
      3. Purchase Price Adjustment
      4. . Within ninety (90) days after the Closing Date, Purchaser shall furnish to Seller a combined balance sheet of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Newco, Holdco and Interco (the "Closing Balance Sheet") as of the close of business on the Closing Date. The Closing Balance Sheet shall (i) be prepared in accordance with GAAP, applied on a basis consistent with prior periods, and as applied to prepare the Balance Sheet, and (ii) include normal fiscal year-end closing adjustments except that there shall be no requirement for a physical inventory. The Closing Balance Sheet shall be accompanied by a report (the "Preliminary Adjustment Report") setting forth in reasonable detail (x) the Adjusted Working Capital Amount as of the close of business on the Closing Date, (y) a statement setting forth in reasonable detail the amount of Closing Debt and Closing Cash and (z) Purchaser's good faith calculation of the Purchase Price based on the amounts set forth in the Preliminary Adjustment Report (the "Preliminary Purchase Price"), which report shall be certified by a financial officer of Purchaser. Seller and its representatives shall have the right to review and copy the computations and work papers (including accountants' work papers, subject to such confidentiality restrictions as Purchaser's accountants shall reasonably request) and Purchaser's underlying books and records used in connection with Purchaser's determination of the Preliminary Purchase Price , and to have reasonable access to the employees and accountants of Purchaser regarding questions concerning Purchaser's determination of the Preliminary Purchase Price arising in the course of their review thereof. If requested by Purchaser, Seller shall furnish to Purchaser a statement (the "Allocation Statement") setting forth any corporate allocations previously provided by Seller and its Affiliates to the Companies and the Company Subsidiaries for the period from the Balance Sheet Date through the Closing Date and any necessary supporting information reasonably requested.

        1. Unless Seller provides specific written notice to Purchaser of an objection to any aspect of the Preliminary Adjustment Report before the close of business on the thirtieth day after Seller's receipt thereof, the Preliminary Adjustment Report shall then become binding upon Purchaser and Seller, and shall be the "Final Adjustment Report", and such day shall be the "Final Adjustment Report Date". If Seller, by written notice to Purchaser before the close of business on such thirtieth day specifying the items and amount in dispute (an "Objection Notice"), objects to any aspect of the Preliminary Adjustment Report, then those aspects as to which the objection was made shall not become binding, Purchaser and Seller shall discuss such objection in good faith; and, if they reach written agreement with respect to all items in dispute amending the Preliminary Adjustment Report, the Preliminary Adjustment Report, as amended by such written agreement, shall become binding upon Purchaser and Seller, and shall be the "Final Adjustment Report", and the date of such written agreement shall be the "Final Adjustment Report Date". If Purchaser and Seller do not reach such written agreement within twenty (20) days after Seller gives such notice of objection, those aspects as to which such objection was made, and which has not been resolved, shall be submitted jointly by Purchaser and Seller for arbitration by an independent accounting firm of nationally recognized standing acceptable to Seller and Purchaser (the "Accounting Firm") (whose fees shall be paid equally by Purchaser and Seller), which shall arbitrate the dispute and submit a written statement of its adjudication, which statement, when delivered to Purchaser and to Seller, shall become final and binding upon Purchaser and Seller, and shall, together with those aspects of the Preliminary Adjustment Report as to which no objection was made, be the "Final Adjustment Report". In such case, the second Business Day after the date on which such statement is delivered to Purchaser and to Seller shall be the "Final Adjustment Report Date". The scope of the disputes to be resolved by the Accounting Firm is limited to whether the amounts set forth on the line items on the Closing Balance Sheet used to calculate the Preliminary Purchase Price were obtained from and in accordance with the books and records of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Newco, Holdco, Interco and the Canadian Parks Business and are in accordance with GAAP, applied on a basis consistent with prior periods, and as applied to prepare the Balance Sheet, including normal fiscal year end closing adjustments, and whether there were mathematical errors in the Preliminary Adjustment Report, in each case, to the extent related to the unresolved items set forth in the Objection Notice, and the Accounting Firm is not to make any other determination. The determination of the Accounting Firm shall constitute an arbitral award that is final, binding and unappealable and upon which a judgment may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof. In acting hereunder, the Accounting Firm shall be entitled to the privileges and immunities of arbitrators.
        2. If Seller delivers an Objection Notice and Purchaser and Seller do not reach written agreement with respect to all items in dispute within twenty (20) days after Seller gives an Objection Notice, then within two Business Days after the expiration of such twenty-day period, (i) Purchaser shall pay to Seller the excess, if any, of (x) the lesser of (1) the Preliminary Purchase Price stated in the Preliminary Adjustment Report or (2) the Purchase Price calculated as if all of the items as to which Seller objected in the Objection Notice and as to which such objections remain unresolved were resolved in Seller's favor (the "Unresolved Objection Purchase Price") over (y) the Estimated Purchase Price (a "Purchaser Interim Payment"), and (ii) Seller shall pay to Purchaser the excess, if any, of (x) the Estimated Purchase Price over (y) the greater of (1) the Preliminary Purchase Price stated in the Preliminary Adjustment Report or (2) the Unresolved Objection Purchase Price (a "Seller Interim Payment").
        3. Within two Business Days after the Final Adjustment Report Date, Purchaser shall pay to Seller the excess, if any, of (i) the Purchase Price stated in the Final Adjustment Report under such Section, minus any Purchaser Interim Payment or plus any Seller Interim Payment over (ii) the Estimated Purchase Price, and Seller shall pay to Purchaser the excess if any, of (x) the Estimated Purchase Price plus any Purchaser Interim Payment or minus any Seller Interim Payment over (y) the Purchase Price stated in the Final Adjustment Report. To the extent such a payment relates to the Canadian Parks Business, the payment will be deemed to be made by Seller or Purchaser, as the case may be, as agent for and on behalf of CBS Canada (in the case of Seller) or Newco (in the case of Purchaser).
        4. Any payment required to be made by Seller or Purchaser pursuant to Section 2.3(c) or 2.3(d) that does not already provide for interest from the Closing Date shall bear interest from the Closing Date to (but excluding) the date of such payment at the Applicable Rate as in effect from time to time and shall be made in immediately available funds to an account designated by recipient.
      5. Closing
      6. . Upon the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, the sale and purchase of the Paramount Parks Shares contemplated by this Agreement shall take place at a closing (the "Closing") to be held at the offices of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, 425 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York at 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the second Business Day following (but not including) the date on which the last of the conditions set forth in Article VIII are satisfied or waived (other than those conditions that by their nature are to be satisfied at the Closing, but subject to fulfillment or waiver of such conditions) or at such other place or at such other time or on such other date as the parties may mutually agree upon in writing (the day on which the Closing takes place being the "Closing Date").

      7. Closing Deliveries by Seller
      8. . At the Closing, Seller shall deliver to Parent and Purchaser:

          5. such other and further instruments, documents and certificates set forth in Section 2.5 of the Seller Disclosure Letter as are required by Purchaser to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

Except as set forth in this Section 3.5, there are no other outstanding shares, options, warrants, calls, rights or commitments or any other agreements of any character relating to dividend rights or to the sale, transfer, issuance or voting of, or the granting of rights to acquire, any equity securities of the Companies, Holdco, Interco or Newco, or any securities or other instruments convertible into, exchangeable for or evidencing the right to purchase any equity securities of the Companies, Holdco, Interco or Newco. The transfer and delivery of the Paramount Parks Shares by Seller to Purchaser as contemplated by this Agreement will transfer good and valid title to the Paramount Parks Shares to Purchaser, free and clear of all Encumbrances, except Encumbrances arising as a result of any action taken by Parent or any of its Affiliates.

      11. Company Subsidiaries
      12. . All the outstanding shares of capital stock, partnership interests, limited liability company interests or other equity interests, as applicable, of the Company Subsidiaries are validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable, have not been issued in violation of any preemptive or similar rights, and are owned, directly or indirectly, by the Companies free and clear of any Encumbrances.

      13. Financial Information.
        1. Section 3.7 of the Seller Disclosure Letter contains copies of the following financial statements of the Companies and the Canadian Parks Business (collectively, the "Financial Statements"): (i) the audited combined balance sheet of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries and the Canadian Parks Business (the "Balance Sheet") as of December 31, 2005 (the "Balance Sheet Date") and December 31, 2004 and the related statements of income and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ending December 31, 2005 (together with the notes thereto) and (ii) the unaudited balance sheet of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries and the Canadian Parks Business as of March 31, 2006, and the related unaudited statement of income for the three month period then ended (the "Interim Financial Statements"). The Financial Statements (x) present fairly in all material respects the combined financial condition and results of operations of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries and the Canadian Parks Business as of the dates thereof or for the periods covered thereby (subject, in the case of the Interim Financial Statements, to normal year-end adjustments and the absence of full footnote disclosure) and (y) have been prepared in all material respects in accordance with GAAP applied on a consistent basis for the periods involved (except as may be indicated in the notes thereto). The Financial Statements have been prepared in all material respects in accordance with the books of account and other records of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries and the Canadian Parks Business.
        2. All of the representations in (a) above are qualified by the fact that Paramount Parks is a wholly-owned Subsidiary of CBS.

        2. Each of Parent and Purchaser, on the one hand, and Seller, on the other hand, shall, in connection with the efforts referenced in Section 5.3(a) to obtain all requisite approvals and authorizations for the transactions contemplated by this Agreement under the HSR Act, the Competition Act or any other Antitrust Law (i) cooperate in all respects with each other in connection with any filing or submission and in connection with any investigation or other inquiry, including any proceeding initiated by a private party; (ii) keep the other party and/or its counsel informed of any communication received by such party from, or given by such party to, the Federal Trade Commission (the "FTC"), the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice (the "DOJ") or any other U.S. or foreign Governmental Authority, including the Canadian Competition Bureau (the "Bureau") and of any communication received or given in connection with any proceeding by a private party, in each case regarding any of the transactions contemplated hereby; and (iii) permit the other party and/or its counsel to review any communication given by it to, and consult with each other in advance of any meeting or conference with, the FTC, the DOJ, the Bureau or any such other Governmental Authority or, in connection with any proceeding by a private party, with any other person, and to the extent permitted by the FTC, the DOJ, the Bureau or such other applicable Governmental Authority or other person, give the other party and/or its counsel the opportunity to attend and participate in such meetings and conferences.

Parent and Purchaser further agree, in order to resolve such objections or suits which, in any case if not resolved, would reasonably be expected to prevent the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby due to the failure to satisfy the conditions in this Agreement, to (i) sell, hold separate or otherwise dispose of the assets to be acquired in this transaction in a manner which would resolve such objections or suits or (ii) agree to sell, hold separate or otherwise dispose of the assets to be acquired in this transaction in a manner which would resolve such objections or suits or (iii) permit the sale, holding separate or other disposition of the assets to be acquired in this transaction in a manner which would resolve such objections or suits, in each case so that the conditions set forth in this Agreement are timely satisfied.
        4. Subject to the obligations under Section 5.3(c), in the event that any administrative or judicial action or proceeding is instituted (or threatened to be instituted) by a Governmental Authority or private party challenging any transaction contemplated by this Agreement, or any other agreement contemplated hereby (i) each of Parent, Purchaser and Seller shall cooperate in all respects with each other and use its respective best efforts to contest and resist any such action or proceeding and to have vacated, lifted, reversed or overturned any decree, judgment, injunction or other order, whether temporary, preliminary or permanent, that is in effect and that prohibits, prevents or restricts consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, and (ii) Parent and Purchaser must defend, at their cost and expense, any action or actions, whether judicial or administrative, in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
        5. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Agreement, nothing in this Section 5.3 or Section 5.10 shall limit a party's right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 10.1(b) so long as such party has up to then complied in all material respects with its obligations under this Section 5.3 or Section 5.10.
        6. The filing fees under any Antitrust Law, including the HSR Act and the Competition Act, shall be borne by the Purchaser. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Seller and Purchaser shall (and shall cause their respective Affiliates to) respond at their own cost as promptly as practicable to any inquiries received from the FTC or the DOJ for additional information or documentation (including a second request) and to all inquiries and requests received from any other Governmental Authority in connection with any Antitrust Law.
      7. Resignations
      8. . On the Closing Date, Seller shall cause to be delivered to Parent duly signed resignations (from the applicable board of directors or office), effective immediately after the Closing, of all directors and officers of the Companies and each Company Subsidiary, in each case that is also employed by CBS, and shall take such other action as is necessary to accomplish the foregoing.

      9. Directors' and Officers' Indemnification and Insurance.
        1. The certificate of incorporation and by-laws or other constituent documents of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Interco, Holdco and Newco shall continue to contain provisions no less favorable with respect to indemnification, advancement of expenses and exculpation of former or present directors, officers and employees than are presently set forth in the applicable company's certificate of incorporation and by-laws, which provisions shall not be amended, repealed or otherwise modified for a period of six years from the Closing Date in any manner that would adversely affect the rights thereunder of any such individuals.
        2. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if any claim, action, suit, proceeding or investigation (whether arising before, at or after the Closing Date) is made against any present (as of the Closing Date) and former officer, director or employee of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Interco, Holdco and Newco (an "Indemnified Director or Officer"), on or prior to the sixth anniversary of the Closing Date, the provisions of this Section 5.5 shall continue in effect until the final disposition of such claim, action, suit, proceeding or investigation.
        3. This covenant is intended to be for the benefit of, and shall be enforceable by, each of the Indemnified Directors and Officers and their respective heirs and legal representatives. The indemnification provided for herein shall not be deemed exclusive of any other rights to which an Indemnified Director or Officer is entitled, whether pursuant to Law, contract or otherwise.
      10. Books and Records
      11. . Purchaser shall retain all of the books and records of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries and the Canadian Parks Business for a period of seven years after the Closing or such longer time as may be required by Law and, subject to restrictions imposed from time to time in good faith upon advice of counsel respecting the provision of privileged communications or competitively sensitive information and any applicable confidentiality agreement with any Person, shall provide, only in such manner that does not unreasonably interfere with the business of the Companies or any Company Subsidiary or the Canadian Parks Business, reasonable access to such pre-Closing books and records (or copies thereof at Seller's expense) to the Seller or its agents, at reasonable times and upon reasonable notice, after the Closing to the extent reasonably necessary for legitimate business reasons, such as disputing any indemnification claim, the preparation of financial statements, Tax returns, the defense of litigation or Tax audits or complying with other legal requirements.

      12. Public Announcements
      13. . Each of Seller and Purchaser agrees that no public release or announcement concerning the transactions contemplated by this Agreement shall be issued by any party or any of its Affiliates without the prior written consent of Seller and Purchaser (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), except as such release or announcement may be required by Law or the rules or regulations of any applicable United States securities exchange, in which case the party required to make the release or announcement shall use its reasonable best efforts to allow each other party reasonable time to comment on such release or announcement in advance of such issuance, it being understood that the final form and content of any such release or announcement, to the extent so required, shall be at the final discretion of the disclosing party.

      14. Permitted Reorganization
      15. . Prior to the Closing Date, Seller shall, and shall cause its Subsidiaries and Affiliates to, effect the Permitted Reorganization in accordance with Schedule III (including the terms of the Canadian contribution agreement set forth in Schedule III), attached hereto. Seller agrees to reasonably consult with Purchaser with respect to effecting the Permitted Reorganization. Seller shall be responsible for all Taxes and out-of-pocket costs and expenses arising out of or related to the Permitted Reorganization; provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, Seller shall not be liable for Taxes owing by Newco (or any successor thereof) in respect of any period after the Closing Date and attributable to the fact that the Canadian Parks Business will be transferred on a tax deferred basis, rather than on a fully taxable basis, for Canadian income tax purposes.

      16. Collective Bargaining Agreement Arrangements
      17. . Effective as of the Closing, Purchaser shall assume all rights, obligations and liabilities of Seller and its Affiliates under each Collective Bargaining Agreement that arise on or after the Closing Date.

      18. Further Assurances
      19. . Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each of the parties hereto shall use its respective best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all appropriate action, do or cause to be done all things necessary, proper or advisable under applicable Law, and execute and deliver such documents and other papers, as may be required to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as promptly as is practicable. Seller shall, as promptly as is reasonably practicable, give such notices to third parties and use its reasonable best efforts to obtain the third party consent listed in Section 5.10(a) of the Seller Disclosure Letter. Purchaser shall cooperate and use all reasonable best efforts to assist Seller in giving such notices and obtaining such consents.

        1. Nothing in this Agreement nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby shall be construed as an attempt or agreement to assign any asset, including any contract, lease, license, permit, certificate, approval, authorization or other right, which by its terms or by Law is nonassignable without the consent of a third party or a Governmental Authority ("Nonassignable Assets") unless and until such consent shall have been obtained. Seller shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to cooperate with Parent and Purchaser in endeavoring to obtain such consents promptly. To the extent permitted by applicable Law, in the event consents to the assignment thereof cannot be obtained, such Nonassignable Assets shall be held, as of and from the Closing Date, by Seller or the applicable Affiliate of Seller in trust for Purchaser and the covenants and obligations thereunder shall be performed by Purchaser in Seller's or such Affiliate's name and all benefits and obligations existing thereunder shall be for Purchaser's account. Seller shall take or cause to be taken at Purchaser's expense such actions in its name or otherwise as Purchaser may reasonably request so as to provide Purchaser with the benefits of the Nonassignable Assets and to effect collection of money or other consideration that becomes due and payable under the Nonassignable Assets, and Seller or the applicable Affiliate of Seller shall promptly pay over to Purchaser all money or other consideration received by it in respect to all Nonassignable Assets.
        2. If requested by Purchaser and permitted by the express terms of the applicable software license, Seller shall make available to the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries and the Canadian Parks Business, effective upon the Closing and for not more than six months thereafter, a license to use the J.D.

        3. The Purchaser shall control all proceedings with respect to any Tax Claim with respect to the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, the Canadian Parks Business, Holdco, Newco or Interco for which the Purchaser is obligated to indemnify Seller under Section 7.1(b).
        4. Notwithstanding Section 7.4(b) and 7.4(c), Seller and Purchaser shall jointly control and participate in all proceedings taken in connection with any Tax Claim relating to Taxes of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Holdco, Newco and Interco for a Straddle Period, and shall bear their own respective costs and expenses. Neither Seller nor Buyer shall settle any such Tax Claim without the prior written consent of the other.
        5. Seller, Purchaser, the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Holdco, Newco and Interco shall reasonably cooperate, and shall cause their respective Affiliates, officers, employees, agents, auditors and other representatives to reasonably cooperate, in preparing and filing all Tax Returns and in resolving all disputes and audits with respect to all taxable periods relating to Taxes, including by maintaining and making available to each other all records necessary in connection with Taxes and making employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information or explanation of any material provided hereunder or to testify at proceedings relating to such Tax Claim. Any information obtained under this Section 7.4(e) shall be kept confidential, except as may be otherwise necessary in connection with the filing of returns or claims for refund or in conducting an audit or other proceeding.
        6. If the parties disagree as to the calculation of any amount relating to Taxes governed by Section 7.1 or Section 7.6, Seller and Purchaser shall promptly consult with each other and endeavor in good faith, for a period of 30 days, to resolve any such disagreements (each disagreement not so resolved, a "Tax Dispute"). Thereafter, either Seller or Purchaser may submit the resolution of any Tax Disputes to the Accounting Firm (as defined in Section 2.3(b)) to resolve the dispute. The Accounting Firm shall only be authorized as directed by the parties on any one issue either (i) to decide in favor of and choose the position of either of the parties or (ii) to decide upon a compromise position within the range of positions presented by the parties to the Accounting Firm. The Accounting Firm shall base its decision solely upon the presentations of the parties to the Accounting Firm at a hearing held before the Accounting Firm and upon any materials made available by either party and not upon independent review. The Accounting Firm shall be instructed to resolve the Tax Disputes and such resolution shall be (i) set forth in writing and signed by the Accounting Firm, (ii) delivered to Seller and Purchaser as soon as practicable after the Tax Disputes are submitted to the Accounting Firm but not later than the 30th day after the Accounting Firm is instructed to resolve the Tax Disputes, (iii) made in accordance with this Agreement, and (iv) final, binding and conclusive on the parties on the date of delivery of such resolution. Any expenses relating to the engagement of the Accounting Firm shall be shared equally by the parties.
      7. Refunds and Tax Benefits
      8. .

        1. The amount or economic benefit of any refunds, credits or offsets of Taxes of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Holdco, Newco or Interco or with respect to the Canadian Parks Business that are the responsibility of Seller under Section 7.1, Section 9.2 (as it relates to Section 3.18), or Section 7.6 shall be for the account of Seller, except to the extent such amounts are reflected in the Adjusted Working Capital Amount in the Final Adjustment Report.
        2. The amount or economic benefit of any other refunds, credits or offsets of Taxes of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Holdco, Newco or Interco, or with respect to the Canadian Parks Business, shall be for the account of Purchaser.
        3. Each party shall forward, and shall cause its Affiliates to forward, to the party entitled to receive the amount or economic benefit of a refund, credit or offset of Taxes the amount of such refund, or the economic benefit of such credit or offset of Taxes, within ten (10) days after such refund is received or after such credit or offset is allowed or applied against another Tax liability, as the case may be.
      9. Transfer Taxes
      10. . Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, all Transfer Taxes arising out of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (other than any Transfer Taxes arising out of the Permitted Reorganization which shall solely be borne by Seller) shall be shared equally by Seller and Purchaser. Seller and Purchaser shall jointly prepare all Tax Returns relating to such Transfer Taxes. Purchaser shall file, or shall cause to be filed, to the extent permitted by applicable law, all Tax Returns as may be required to comply with the provisions of such Tax Laws relating to Transfer Taxes. Seller shall cooperate with Purchaser in connection with all such filings and shall file any Tax Returns that Purchaser is not permitted to file.

      11. Tax Sharing Agreements
      12. . On or prior to the Closing Date, all tax sharing, tax allocation or similar agreements between any of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Holdco, Newco or Interco on the one hand, and any of Seller or its Affiliates (other than the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Holdco, Newco or Interco), on the other hand, shall be terminated, and, after the Closing, none of the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Holdco, Newco, Interco, Seller, the Purchaser or any Affiliates of the foregoing shall be bound thereby or have any obligations or liability thereunder.

      13. Section 338(h)(10) Election
      14. . At Purchaser's option, Purchaser and Seller shall join in timely making an election under section 338(h)(10) of the Code (and any corresponding elections under state, local, or foreign tax law) (collectively, a "Section 338(h)(10) Election") with respect to the purchase and sale of Paramount Parks and, if such election is made, at Purchaser's option, with respect to Paramount Parks Experience, Inc. and Interco (if applicable); provided, for the avoidance of doubt, that no such election shall be made with respect to Kings Island. Purchaser and Seller shall cooperate in the completion and timely filing of such elections in accordance with the provisions of Treasury Regulations section 1.338(h)(10)-1 (or any comparable provisions of state, local or foreign Tax law) or any successor provision. Seller and Purchaser agree not to take any action that could cause the Section 338(h)(10) Election to be invalid, and shall take no position contrary thereto unless required pursuant to a final determination (as defined in Section 1313(a) of the Code or any similar provision of any state, foreign or local law). Within ninety (90) days following the Closing Date, Purchaser shall prepare and deliver to Seller a draft schedule allocating the "aggregate deemed sales price," within the meaning of the Treasury regulations issued under Section 338(h)(10), among the assets of Paramount Parks and Paramount Parks Experience, Inc. in accordance with such regulations. Within forty-five (45) days of its receipt of such draft allocation schedule, Seller shall provide Purchaser with a written notice of any proposed changes thereto, together with a detailed explanation of the basis for such proposed changes. In the event that the Parties cannot agree on an allocation schedule within sixty (60) days after Purchaser's receipt of Seller's notice of proposed changes, the dispute shall be referred to the Accounting Firm. The allocation determined by the Accounting Firm shall be conclusive and binding upon Purchaser and Seller, and each party shall file its Tax Returns in accordance with such allocation schedule. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the allocation under this Section 7.8 to Interco shall be consistent with the determination of "Fair Market Value," as provided under Schedule III.

      15. Tax Treatment of Indemnity Payments

. The parties agree to treat any indemnity payment made under this Article VII or Article IX as an adjustment to the Purchase Price for all federal, state, local and foreign Tax purposes, and the parties agree to, and shall cause their respective Affiliates to, file their Tax Returns accordingly.

      2. . The representations and warranties contained in this Agreement shall expire on December 31, 2007; provided, however, that (a) the representations and warranties contained in Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.5, 3.20, 3.21(a) (first sentence only), 3.22, 4.1, 4.2 and 4.7 shall survive indefinitely, (b) the representations and warranties contained in Section 3.17 shall expire on the third anniversary of the Closing Date, and (c) the representations and warranties contained in Section 3.13 shall survive until the date that is 60 days following the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations.

Any written claim by Parent or Purchaser with respect to a breach of any covenant or other agreement made by the Seller in this Agreement to be performed at or prior to the Closing may be given at any time prior to the day that is three months following the Closing Date. All other covenants shall survive the Closing and survive indefinitely, except those that by their terms expire earlier.

      3. Indemnification

. Purchaser and its Affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns shall be indemnified and held harmless by Seller for any and all Liabilities, Taxes (solely with respect to Section 3.18), losses, damages, claims, costs and expenses, interest, awards, judgments and penalties (including, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) actually suffered or incurred by them (hereinafter a "Loss"), arising out of or resulting from:

    1. the breach of any representation or warranty made by Seller in this Agreement;
    2. the breach of any covenant or agreement by Sellers contained in this Agreement which is to be performed prior to the Closing; or
    3. any of the Actions set forth in Section 9.2(a)(iii) of the Seller Disclosure Letter (the "Assumed Litigation") (each of which shall be treated as a Third Party Claim for purposes of Article IX (other than Section 9.3)).

The foregoing provisions of this Section 9.2(a) shall not apply with respect to any Losses arising out of (and no indemnification hereunder shall be available with respect to) any breach of any representation or warranty of Sellers that is terminated as provided in Section 9.1.

      1. Seller and its Affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns shall be indemnified and held harmless by Purchaser for any and all Losses arising out of or resulting from:
    1. the breach of any representation or warranty made by Purchaser in this Agreement;
    2. the breach of any covenant or agreement by Purchaser contained in this Agreement which is to be performed prior to the Closing; or
    3. the Liabilities of the Companies and the Company Subsidiaries, except to the extent that they arise from a matter for which indemnification is due under Section 9.2(a).

The foregoing provisions of this Section 9.2(b) shall not apply with respect to any Losses arising out of (and no indemnification hereunder shall be available with respect to) any breach of any representation or warranty of Purchaser that is terminated as provided in Section 9.1.

      1. Any party seeking indemnification under this Section 9.2 (an "Indemnified Party") shall promptly give the party from whom indemnification is being sought (an "Indemnifying Party") notice (a "Claim Notice") of any matter which such Indemnified Party has determined has given or could reasonably be expected to give rise to a right of indemnification under this Agreement, within 60 days of such determination, stating in reasonable detail, the nature of the claim, a good-faith reasonable estimate of the Loss and method of computation thereof (to the extent practicable), and containing a reference to the provisions of this Agreement in respect of which such right of indemnification is claimed or arises; provided, however, that the failure to provide such notice shall not release the Indemnifying Party from any of its obligations under Section 9.2 except to the extent the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced by such failure. With respect to any recovery or indemnification sought by an Indemnified Party from the Indemnifying Party that does not involve a Third-Party Claim (as defined below), if the Indemnifying Party does not notify the Indemnified Party within 30 days from its receipt of the Claim Notice that the Indemnifying Party disputes such claim (the "Dispute Notice"), the Indemnifying Party shall be deemed to have accepted and agreed with such claim. If the Indemnifying Party has disputed a claim for indemnification (including any Third-Party Claim), the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall proceed in good faith to negotiate a resolution to such dispute. If the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party cannot resolve such dispute in 30 days after delivery of the Dispute Notice, such dispute shall be resolved by litigation in an appropriate court of law.
      2. The obligations and Liabilities of an Indemnifying Party under Section 9.2 with respect to Losses arising from claims of any third party which are subject to the indemnification provided for in Section 9.2 ("Third Party Claims") shall be governed by and contingent upon the following additional terms and conditions: if an Indemnified Party shall receive notice of any Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party notice of such Third Party Claim within 30 days of the receipt by the Indemnified Party of such notice and a copy of the papers served with respect to such claim (if any); provided, however, that the failure to provide such notice shall not release the Indemnifying Party from any of its obligations under Section 9.2 except to the extent the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced by such failure. If the Indemnifying Party acknowledges in writing its obligation to indemnify the Indemnified Party hereunder against any Losses that may result from such Third Party Claim, then the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to assume and control the defense of such Third Party Claim at its expense and through counsel of its choice reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party if it gives notice of its intention to do so to the Indemnified Party within twenty Business Days of the receipt of such notice from the Indemnified Party; provided, however, the Indemnified Party may, at its sole cost and expense, participate in the defense of such Third Party Claim, it being understood that the Indemnifying Party shall control such defense; provided, further, that if counsel to the Indemnified Party advises such Indemnified Party in writing that the Third Party Claim involves a conflict of interest (other than one of a monetary nature) that would make it inappropriate for the same counsel to represent both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party, then the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to retain its own counsel at the cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party (except that the Indemnifying Party shall not be obligated to pay the fees and expenses of more than one separate counsel for all Indemnified Parties, taken together). In the event the Indemnifying Party exercises the right to undertake any such defense against any such Third Party Claim as provided above, it will keep the Indemnified Party reasonably informed of progress of the defense of such Third Party Claim, and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate with the Indemnifying Party in such defense and make available to the Indemnifying Party, all witnesses, pertinent records, materials and information in the Indemnified Party's possession or under the Indemnified Party's control relating thereto as is reasonably required by the Indemnifying Party. Similarly, in the event the Indemnified Party is, directly or indirectly, conducting the defense against any such Third Party Claim, it will keep the Indemnifying Party reasonably informed of progress of the defense of such Third Party Claim, and the Indemnifying Party shall cooperate with the Indemnified Party in such defense and make available to the Indemnified Party, all such witnesses, records, materials and information in the Indemnifying Party's possession or under the Indemnifying Party's control relating thereto as is reasonably required by the Indemnified Party. The rights of any Indemnifying Party shall be subrogated to any right of action (including indemnification, cross-claims and counterclaims) that the Indemnified Party may have against any other Person with respect to any matter giving rise to a claim for indemnification hereunder. The Indemnifying Party shall not, without the written consent of the Indemnified Party, (i) settle or compromise any Third Party Claim or consent to the entry of any judgment which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the delivery by the claimant or plaintiff to the Indemnified Party of a written release from all liability in respect of such Third Party Claim or (ii) settle or compromise any Third Party Claim in any manner that may adversely affect the Indemnified Party other than as a result of money damages or other money payments. Without limiting the foregoing, the Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any amount required to be paid by the Indemnified Party that exceeds, where the Indemnified Party has unreasonably withheld or delayed consent in connection with the proposed compromise or settlement of a Third Party Claim, the amount for which that Third Party Claim could have been settled pursuant to that proposed compromise or settlement. No Third Party Claim which is being defended in good faith by the Indemnifying Party in accordance with the terms of this Agreement shall be settled by the Indemnified Party without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party.
      3. To the extent that the Purchaser can pursue a claim for a Loss relating to Taxes under either Section 7.1 or Section 9.2 (as it relates to a breach of Section 3.18), the provisions of Article VII shall govern with respect to such claim.
      1. Limits on Indemnification
      2. . No amount shall be payable by Seller pursuant to Section 9.2(a) for any breach of any representation or warranty (other than any representation or warranty in Section 3.2, 3.5, 3.20, 3.21(a) (first sentence only) or 3.22) unless the aggregate amount of Losses indemnifiable under Section 9.2(a) for breaches of representations or warranties exceeds one percent (1%) of the Purchase Price (and only to the extent of such excess). No amount shall be payable by Purchaser pursuant to Section 9.2(b) for any breach of any representation or warranty (other than any representation or warranty in Sections 4.2 or 4.7) unless the aggregate amount of Losses indemnifiable under Section 9.2(b) for breaches of representations or warranties exceeds one percent (1%) of the Purchase Price (and only to the extent of such excess).

        1. No amount shall be payable by an Indemnifying Party pursuant to Section 9.2 for any breach of any representation or warranty resulting in aggregate Losses of $50,000 or less with respect to any matter or series of related matters and such Losses shall not be included in calculating the threshold established in Section 9.3(a).
        2. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the maximum amount of aggregate indemnifiable Losses which may be recovered from Seller, on the one hand, or Purchaser, on the other hand, arising out of or resulting from the causes enumerated in Section 9.2 (excluding Section 9.2(b)(iii)) shall be an amount equal to twenty percent (20%) of the Purchase Price.
        3. No Indemnifying Party shall be liable for any indirect, consequential, special, multiple, exemplary or punitive damages or lost profits, diminution in value or any damages based on any type of multiple of any Indemnified Party, except in the event of fraud or willful misconduct.
        4. For purposes of determining the existence of, and calculating the amount of any losses arising out of or resulting from, any breach of a representation or warranty pursuant to Sections 9.2(a)(i) and 9.2(b)(i), the representations and warranties made by Seller or Purchaser in this Agreement, as applicable, shall be read without regard to any Material Adverse Effect or materiality qualifiers contained therein, except with respect to the representations and warranties made by Seller in Section 3.9.
      3. Computation of Indemnifiable Losses
      4. . Any amount payable pursuant to this Article IX shall be decreased to the extent of (i) any amounts actually recovered by the Indemnified Party from any third party (including insurance proceeds) in respect of an indemnifiable Loss, (ii) any net Tax benefit actually realized by the Indemnified Party arising out of an indemnifiable Loss and (iii) any amounts that relate to such Losses reflected in the Adjusted Working Capital Amount in the Final Adjustment Report. The Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Parties shall cooperate in good faith in providing each other the information necessary to determine the Tax benefits, as the case may be, in each case. The Indemnified Parties shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to pursue payment under or from any insurer or third-party in respect of such Losses. Purchaser shall not, and shall cause the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Interco, Holdco and Newco not to, without the prior written consent of the Seller, waive, release, compromise, reduce or otherwise amend in any way that would limit coverage, any fully-paid insurance policies or coverage in effect at the Closing that relate to Losses.

      5. Access
      6. . From and after the delivery of a Claim Notice by any Indemnified Party, each Indemnified Party shall grant the Indemnifying Party and its representatives all reasonable access to the books, records, employees and properties of such Indemnified Party (including the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Interco, Holdco and Newco) related to the matters to which the claim relates (provided that, as necessary to protect any attorney-client privilege, the parties shall execute a joint defense agreement containing customary terms). All such access shall be granted during normal business hours.

      7. Mitigation of Damages
      8. . The parties hereto shall cooperate with each other to mitigate any Losses, including maintaining insurance coverage with respect to the Companies, the Company Subsidiaries, Interco, Holdco and Newco.

      9. Indemnification as Exclusive Remedy

. Except as expressly set forth in Section 5.15, the indemnification provided in this Article IX, subject to the limitations set forth herein, shall be the exclusive post-Closing remedy available to any party for any breach of any representation, warranty or covenant by the other party contained herein and no party shall pursue or seek to pursue any other remedy. Except as specifically set forth in or arising under this Agreement, from and after the Closing, the parties hereto waive any rights and claims that a party may have against any other party, whether in law or in equity, relating to the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, including claims for contribution or other rights of recovery arising out of or relating to any Environmental Laws, claims for breach of contract, breach of representation or warranty, negligent misrepresentation and all claims for breach of duty; provided, however, that nothing set forth in this Agreement shall limit the rights, remedies and claims of any party hereto with respect to any fraud or willful misconduct by any other party hereto.



  1. TERMINATION, AMENDMENT AND WAIVER
      1. Termination
      2. . This Agreement may be terminated and the transactions contemplated hereby may be abandoned at any time prior to the Closing Date:

        1. by mutual written consent of each party hereto;
        2. by any party hereto if any Governmental Authority of competent jurisdiction located or having jurisdiction within the United States shall have issued a final Governmental Order or taken any other final action restraining, enjoining or otherwise prohibiting the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and such Governmental Order or other action is or shall have become final and nonappealable; or
        3. by any party hereto if the Closing Date shall not have occurred on or before September 29, 2006 (the "Termination Date"); provided that the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to this Section 10.1(c) shall not be available to the party seeking to terminate if any action of such party or the failure of such party to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement required to be performed at or prior to the Closing Date has been the cause of, or resulted in, the failure of the Closing Date to occur on or before the Termination Date and such action or failure to perform constitutes a breach of this Agreement.
      3. Effect of Termination
      4. . In the event of the termination of this Agreement pursuant to Section 10.1, this Agreement shall forthwith become void and there shall be no liability or obligation on the part of any party hereto, except with respect to Sections 3.22, 4.7, 5.2(b), 5.7, this Section 10.2, Section 10.3 and Article XI, which shall survive such termination.

      5. Expenses
      6. . Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, each party shall bear its own expenses in connection with this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby.

      7. Amendment

Newco3 will establish a defined contribution registered pension plan and, if necessary, a supplementary top-up defined contribution pension plan, which shall provide benefits to Canadian Parks Business employees that are of equal or greater economic value to Canadian Parks Business employees than the pension benefits provided to them immediately prior to the closing date of the transfer. CBS Canada will retain all obligations and liabilities for all pension benefits accrued by Canadian Parks Business employees prior to closing, and Newco3 will be responsible for all pension benefits accrued by Canadian Parks Business employees on and after closing. Newco3 will also establish a savings plan to cover the Canadian Parks Business employees from and after the closing date (which shall consist of a group registered retirement savings plan, an employee profit sharing plan and a deferred profit sharing plan) which is substantially similar to the savings plan provided to Canadian Parks Business employees immediately prior to the closing date.
