Each of the Jack in the Box Parties hereby agrees, jointly and severally, to indemnify and hold harmless each Initial Purchaser Indemnified Party, against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, damages and expenses whatsoever as incurred (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees and any and all reasonable and documented expenses whatsoever incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any litigation, commenced or threatened, or any claim whatsoever, and any and all amounts paid in settlement of any claim or litigation), joint or several, to which they or any of them may become subject, insofar as such loss, claim, damage, liability or action arises out of, or is based upon, any website maintained in compliance with Rule 17g-5 under the 1934 Act by or on behalf of any Jack in the Box Party in connection with the marketing of the offering of the Offered Notes.
Except as otherwise provided in Section 8(c), each of the Jack in the Box Parties agrees that it shall, jointly and severally, reimburse each Indemnified Party promptly upon demand for any reasonable and documented legal or other expenses incurred by that Initial Purchaser Indemnified Party in connection with investigating or defending or preparing to defend against any losses, liabilities, claims, damages or expenses for which indemnity is being provided pursuant to this Section 8(a) as such expenses are incurred.
36

The foregoing indemnity agreement will be in addition to any liability which the Jack in the Box Parties may otherwise have, including but not limited to other liability under this Agreement.
(b)            Each Initial Purchaser, severally and not jointly, shall indemnify and hold harmless each Jack in the Box Party, each of the officers, directors and employees of each Jack in the Box Party, and each other person, if any, who controls such Jack in the Box Party within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act (each, a “Jack in the Box Indemnified Party”), against any losses, liabilities, claims, damages and expenses whatsoever as incurred (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees and any and all reasonable and documented expenses whatsoever incurred in investigating, preparing or defending against any litigation, commenced or threatened, or any claim whatsoever, and any and all amounts paid in settlement of any claim or litigation), joint or several, to which they or any of them may become subject under the 1933 Act, the 1934 Act or otherwise, insofar as such losses, liabilities, claims, damages or expenses (or actions in respect thereof) arise out of or are based upon (i) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained (A) in the Preliminary Offering Memorandum, the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Final Offering Memorandum or in any amendment or supplement thereto, (B) in any Blue Sky Application or (C) in any Marketing Materials, or (ii) the omission or alleged omission to state in the Preliminary Offering Memorandum, the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Final Offering Memorandum, or in any amendment or supplement thereto, in any Blue Sky Application or in any Marketing Materials any material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, but in each case only to the extent that the untrue statement or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission was made in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to any of the Jack in the Box Parties by or on behalf of any Initial Purchaser through the Representative expressly for use in the Preliminary Offering Memorandum, the Pricing Disclosure Package, the Final Offering Memorandum, amendment or supplement thereto, Blue Sky Application or Marketing Materials (as the case may be, which information the Jack in the Box Parties acknowledge and agree is limited to the Initial Purchaser Information); provided, however, that in no case shall any Initial Purchaser be liable or responsible for any amount in excess of the discount received by such Initial Purchaser attributable to the Offered Notes to be purchased by such Initial Purchaser under this Agreement.
The foregoing indemnity agreement will be in addition to any liability which the Initial Purchasers may otherwise have, including but not limited to other liability under this Agreement.
37

(c)            Promptly after receipt by an indemnified party under subsection (a) or (b) above of notice of any claims or the commencement of any action, such indemnified party shall, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made against the indemnifying party under such subsection, notify each party against whom indemnification is to be sought in writing of the claim or the commencement thereof (but the failure so to notify an indemnifying party shall not relieve the indemnifying party from any liability which it may have under this Section 8 to the extent that it is not materially prejudiced due to the forfeiture of substantive rights or defenses as a result thereof or otherwise has notice of any such action, and in any event shall not relieve it from any liability that such indemnifying party may have otherwise than on account of the indemnity agreement hereunder).  In case any such claim or action is brought against any indemnified party, and it notifies an indemnifying party of the commencement thereof, the indemnifying party will be entitled to participate, at its own expense in the defense of such action, and to the extent it may elect by written notice delivered to the indemnified party promptly after receiving the aforesaid notice from such indemnified party, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party; provided, however, that counsel to the indemnifying party shall not (except with the written consent of the indemnified party) also be counsel to the indemnified party.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the indemnified party or parties shall have the right to employ its or their own counsel in any such case, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such indemnified party or parties unless (i) the employment of such counsel shall have been authorized in writing by one of the indemnifying parties in connection with the defense of such action, (ii) the indemnifying parties shall not have employed counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party to have charge of the defense of such action within a reasonable time after notice of commencement of the action, (iii) such indemnified party or parties shall have reasonably concluded, based on advice of counsel, that there may be legal defenses available to it or them which are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying parties, or (iv) the named parties in any such proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both the indemnifying party and the indemnified party and representation of both sets of parties by the same counsel would present a conflict due to actual or potential differing interests between them, in any of which events (i) through (iv) such fees and expenses shall be borne by the indemnifying parties (and the indemnifying parties shall not have the right to direct the defense of such action on behalf of the indemnified party or parties; provided, however, that in no event will the indemnifying parties be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one counsel for the indemnified parties for any one action or related group of actions (together with any local counsel in any applicable jurisdiction).  No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the indemnified parties, effect any settlement or compromise of, or consent to the entry of judgment with respect to, any pending or threatened claim, investigation, action or proceeding in respect of which indemnity or contribution may be or could have been sought by an indemnified party under this Section 8 (whether or not the indemnified party is an actual or potential party thereto), unless such settlement, compromise or judgment (i) includes an unconditional release of the indemnified party from all liability arising out of such claim, investigation, action or proceeding and (ii) does not include a statement as to or an admission of fault, culpability or any failure to act, by or on behalf of the indemnified party.  No indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement or compromise of, or consent to the entry of judgment with respect to, any such action or claim effected without its consent.
38

(d)            In order to provide for contribution in circumstances in which the indemnification provided for in Section 8(a) through (c) is for any reason held to be unavailable from any indemnifying party or is insufficient to hold harmless a party indemnified thereunder, the Jack in the Box Parties and the Initial Purchasers shall contribute to the aggregate losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses of the nature contemplated by such indemnification provision (including any reasonable and documented investigation, legal and other expenses incurred in connection with, and any amount paid in settlement of, any action, suit or proceeding or any claims asserted), but after deducting in the case of losses, claims, damages, liabilities and expenses suffered by the Jack in the Box Parties, any contribution received by the Jack in the Box Parties from persons, other than the Initial Purchasers, who may also be liable for contribution, including their directors, officers, employees and persons who control the Jack in the Box Parties within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act as incurred to which the Jack in the Box Parties and one or more of the Initial Purchasers may be subject, in such proportions as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Jack in the Box Parties and the Initial Purchasers from the offering and sale of the Offered Notes under this Agreement or, if such allocation is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportions as are appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to above but also the relative fault of the Jack in the Box Parties and the Initial Purchasers in connection with the statements or omissions which resulted in such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or expenses, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.  The relative benefits received by the Jack in the Box Parties and the Initial Purchaser shall be deemed to be in the same proportion as the total proceeds from the offering and sale of the Offered Notes under this Agreement (net of discounts and commissions but before deducting expenses) received by the Jack in the Box Parties or their affiliates under this Agreement, on the one hand, and the discounts or commissions received by the Initial Purchasers under this Agreement, on the other hand, bear to the aggregate offering price to investors of the Offered Notes purchased under this Agreement, as set forth on the cover of the Final Offering Memorandum.  The relative fault of each of the Jack in the Box Parties (on the one hand) and of the Initial Purchasers (on the other hand) shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to information supplied by the Jack in the Box Parties or their affiliates, on the one hand, or the Initial Purchasers (which the Jack in the Box Parties acknowledge and agree is limited solely to the Initial Purchaser Information), on the other hand, and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission.  The Jack in the Box Parties and the Initial Purchasers agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 8(d) were determined by pro rata allocation (even if the Initial Purchasers were treated as one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to above in this Section 8(d).  The aggregate amount of losses, liabilities, claims, damages and expenses incurred by an indemnified party and referred to above in this Section 8(d) shall be deemed to include any documented legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by such indemnified party in investigating, preparing or defending against any litigation, or any investigation or proceeding by any judicial, regulatory or other legal or governmental agency or body, commenced or threatened, or any claim whatsoever based upon any such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission.  Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 8(d), (i) no Initial Purchaser shall be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the discounts and commissions received by such Initial Purchaser attributable to the Offered Notes resold by it to Eligible Purchasers under this Agreement exceeds the amount of any damages which such Initial Purchaser has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission, and (ii) no person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the 1933 Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation.  For purposes of this Section 8(d), (A) each of the Initial Purchaser Indemnified Parties other than the Initial Purchasers shall have the same rights to contribution as the Initial Purchasers, and (B) each director, officer or employee of the Jack in the Box Parties and each person, if any, who controls the Jack in the Box Parties within the meaning of Section 15 of the 1933 Act or Section 20 of the 1934 Act shall have the same rights to contribution as the Jack in the Box Parties, subject in each case of (A) and (B) to clauses (i) and (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence.  Any party entitled to contribution will, promptly after receipt of notice of commencement of any action, suit or proceeding against such party in respect of which a claim for contribution may be made against another party or parties, notify each party or parties from whom contribution may be sought, but the omission to so notify such party or parties shall not relieve the party or parties from whom contribution may be sought from any obligation it or they may have under this Section 8(d) or otherwise.  The obligations of the Jack in the Box Parties to contribute pursuant to this Section 8(d) shall be joint and several.
39

(e)            The Initial Purchasers, severally and not jointly, confirm and the Jack in the Box Parties acknowledge and agree that (i) the statements with respect to the offering of the Offered Notes by the Initial Purchasers set forth in the third to last paragraph (relating to overallotment, stabilization and similar activities) of the section entitled “Plan of Distribution” in the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Offering Memorandum and (ii) the name of the Initial Purchasers set forth on the front and back cover page of the Preliminary Offering Memorandum and the Final Offering Memorandum constitute the only information concerning such Initial Purchasers furnished in writing to the Jack in the Box Parties by or on behalf of the Initial Purchasers specifically for inclusion in the Preliminary Offering Memorandum, the Pricing Disclosure Package and the Final Offering Memorandum or in any amendment or supplement thereto or in any Blue Sky Application (the “Initial Purchaser Information”).
9.            Defaulting Initial Purchasers.
(a)            If, on the Closing Date, any Initial Purchaser defaults in its obligations to purchase the Offered Notes that it has agreed to purchase under this Agreement, the remaining non-defaulting Initial Purchasers may in their discretion arrange for the purchase of such Offered Notes by the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers or other persons satisfactory to the Master Issuer on the terms contained in this Agreement.  If, within 36 hours after any such default by any Initial Purchaser, the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers do not arrange for the purchase of such Offered Notes, then the Master Issuer shall be entitled to a further period of 36 hours within which to procure other persons reasonably satisfactory to the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers to purchase such Offered Notes on such terms.  In the event that within the respective prescribed periods, the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers notify the Master Issuer that they have so arranged for the purchase of such Offered Notes, or the Master Issuer notifies the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers that it has so arranged for the purchase of such Offered Notes, either the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers or the Master Issuer may postpone the Closing Date for up to seven full Business Days in order to effect any changes that in the opinion of counsel for the Master Issuer or counsel for the Initial Purchasers may be necessary in the Pricing Disclosure Package, the Final Offering Memorandum or in any other document or arrangement, and the Master Issuer agrees to promptly prepare any amendment or supplement to the Pricing Disclosure Package or the Final Offering Memorandum that effects any such changes.  As used in this Agreement, the term “Initial Purchaser” includes, for all purposes of this Agreement unless the context requires otherwise, any party not listed in Schedule I hereto that, pursuant to this Section 9, purchases Offered Notes that a defaulting Initial Purchaser agreed but failed to purchase.
40

(b)            If, after giving effect to any arrangements for the purchase of the Offered Notes of a defaulting Initial Purchaser or Initial Purchasers by the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers and any persons procured by the Master Issuer as provided in paragraph (a) above, the aggregate principal amount of such Offered Notes that remains unpurchased does not exceed one-eleventh of the aggregate principal amount of all the Offered Notes, then the Master Issuer shall have the right to require each non-defaulting Initial Purchaser to purchase the principal amount of Offered Notes that such Initial Purchaser agreed to purchase hereunder plus such Initial Purchaser’s pro rata share (based on the principal amount of Offered Notes that such Initial Purchaser agreed to purchase hereunder) of the Offered Notes of such defaulting Initial Purchaser or Initial Purchasers for which such arrangements have not been made; provided that the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers shall not be obligated to purchase more than 110% of the aggregate principal amount of Offered Notes that they agreed to purchase on the Closing Date pursuant to the terms of Section 3.
(c)            If, after giving effect to any arrangements for the purchase of the Offered Notes of a defaulting Initial Purchaser or Initial Purchasers by the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers and any persons procured by the Master Issuer as provided in paragraph (a) above, the aggregate principal amount of such Offered Notes that remains unpurchased exceeds one-eleventh of the aggregate principal amount of all the Offered Notes, or if the Master Issuer shall not exercise the right described in paragraph (b) above, then this Agreement shall terminate without liability on the part of the non-defaulting Initial Purchasers.  Any termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 9 shall be without liability on the part of the Jack in the Box Parties, except that the Jack in the Box Parties will continue to be liable for the payment of expenses as set forth in Sections 6 and 13 except with respect to a defaulting Initial Purchaser and except that the provisions of Section 8 shall not terminate and shall remain in effect.
(d)            Nothing contained herein shall relieve a defaulting Initial Purchaser of any liability it may have to the Jack in the Box Parties or any non-defaulting Initial Purchaser for damages caused by its default.
10.            Termination.  The Representative shall have the right to terminate this Agreement at any time prior to the Closing Date, if, at or after the Applicable Time: (i) any domestic or international event or act or occurrence has materially disrupted, or in the opinion of the Representative will in the immediate future materially disrupt, the market for the Master Issuer’s securities or securities in general; or (ii) trading on the NYSE or Nasdaq shall have been suspended or been made subject to material limitations, or minimum or maximum prices for trading shall have been fixed, or maximum ranges for prices for securities shall have been required, on the NYSE or Nasdaq or by order of the Commission or any other governmental authority having jurisdiction; or (iii) a banking moratorium has been declared by any state or federal authority or any material disruption in commercial banking or securities settlement or clearance services shall have occurred; or (iv) (A) there shall have occurred any outbreak or escalation of hostilities or acts of terrorism involving the United States or there is a declaration of a national emergency or war by the United States or (B) there shall have been any other calamity or crisis or any change in political, financial or economic conditions if the effect of any such event in (A) or (B), in the judgment of the Representative, makes it impracticable or inadvisable to proceed with the offering, sale and delivery of the Offered Notes, on the terms and in the manner contemplated by the Final Offering Memorandum; or (v) any of the events described in Sections 7(r) or 7(x) shall have occurred or any other condition described in Section 7 shall fail to have been satisfied or the Initial Purchasers shall decline to purchase the Offered Notes for any reason permitted under this Agreement. Any notice of termination pursuant to this Section 10 shall be in writing.
41

11.            Non-Assignability.  None of the Jack in the Box Parties may assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement. No Initial Purchaser may assign its respective rights and obligations under this Agreement, except that an Initial Purchaser shall have the right to substitute any one of its affiliates as the purchaser of the Offered Notes that it has agreed to purchase hereunder (“Substituting Initial Purchaser”), by a written notice to the Master Issuer, which notice shall be signed by both the Substituting Initial Purchaser and such affiliate, shall contain such affiliate’s agreement to be bound by this Agreement and shall contain a confirmation by such affiliate of the accuracy with respect to it of the representations set forth in Section 3. Upon receipt of such notice, wherever the word “Initial Purchaser” is used in this Agreement (other than in this Section 11), such word shall be deemed to refer to such affiliate in lieu of the Substituting Initial Purchaser.
12.            Reimbursement of Initial Purchasers’ Expenses.  If (a) the Master Issuer for any reason fails to tender the Offered Notes for delivery to the Initial Purchasers, or (b) the Initial Purchasers decline to purchase the Offered Notes for any reason permitted under this Agreement, the Jack in the Box Parties shall jointly and severally reimburse the Initial Purchasers for all reasonable and reasonably documented out-of-pocket expenses (including fees and disbursements of counsel for the Initial Purchasers) incurred by the Initial Purchasers in connection with this Agreement and the proposed purchase of the Offered Notes, and upon demand shall pay the full amount thereof to the Initial Purchasers. If this Agreement is terminated pursuant to Section 9 by reason of the default of one or more Initial Purchasers, the Jack in the Box Parties shall not be obligated to reimburse any defaulting Initial Purchaser on account of those expenses.
13.            Notices, etc.  All statements, requests, notices and agreements hereunder shall be in writing, and:

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 28, 2019--Jack in the Box Inc. (NASDAQ: JACK) (the “Company”) today announced that it has entered into a purchase agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) under which one of its indirect, special purpose subsidiaries (the “Master Issuer”) has agreed to issue and sell $575 million of its Series 2019-1 3.982% Fixed Rate Senior Secured Notes, Class A-2-I (the “Class A-2-I Notes”), $275 million of its Series 2019-1 4.476% Fixed Rate Senior Secured Notes, Class A-2-II (the “Class A-2-II Notes”), and $450 million of its Series 2019-1 4.970% Fixed Rate Senior Secured Notes, Class A-2-III (the “Class A-2-III Notes” and, together with the Class A-2-I Notes and Class A-2-II Notes, the “2019 Notes”). Interest payments on the 2019 Notes are payable on a quarterly basis. The anticipated repayment dates of the Class A-2-I Notes, the Class A-2-II Notes and the Class A-2-III Notes will be August 2023, August 2026 and August 2029, respectively, unless earlier prepaid to the extent permitted under the indenture that will govern the 2019 Notes. The 2019 Notes are expected to be issued by the Master Issuer in a privately placed securitization transaction.

The net proceeds of the expected sale of the 2019 Notes are expected to be used to repay all of the existing indebtedness under the Company’s senior credit facility, to pay the transaction costs and to fund the reserve accounts associated with the securitized financing facility, and for working capital purposes and for general corporate purposes, which may include a return of capital to the Company’s equity holders.

The Master Issuer also intends to enter into a purchase agreement under which it will issue $150 million of its Series 2019-1 Variable Funding Senior Secured Notes, Class A-1 (the "Class A-1 Notes"), which will allow the Master Issuer to borrow amounts from time to time on a revolving basis.


The closing of the sale of the 2019 Notes is expected to occur in July 2019, subject to satisfaction of various closing conditions. However, there can be no assurance regarding the timing of the closing or that the sale of the 2019 Notes will be completed.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the 2019 Notes or any other security. The 2019 Notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
