Winshall Annuity Trust No. 25, Mark Rabinovici, Harold Grinspoon Revocable Trust dated 4/26/91, American Friends of Torah BYisrael, Inc., Christine Legge, Dan Ogles, Elena Seigman, Ethan Fenn, Joe Brisbois, Joe

Kowalski, Leeanne Williams, Mark Finch, Matt Moss, and Rob Kay, and alleges as follows: NATURE OF THE ACTION 1. This action arises from defendants failure to return to Viacom

their shares of a $131,827,980 contractual overpayment (the Overpayment) to which they are not entitled. 2. Viacom made a payment of $149,770,149 to defendants and others

all former stockholders of Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. (Harmonix) based upon the preliminary calculation of a contractual earn-out payment for 2007 under an Agreement and Plan of Merger dated September 20, 2006 (the Merger Agreement), by which Viacom acquired Harmonix in 2006. Viacom expressly conditioned the payment as being on account and without prejudice to any of Viacoms rights under the Merger Agreement and stated that it expressly reserves all rights and remedies available to it under the Merger Agreement or otherwise. 3. Viacom has since determined, based on the express terms of the

Merger Agreement and has advised defendants through their designated representative under the Merger Agreement, defendant Winshall that the earn-out payment actually due for 2007 was $17,942,169. Accordingly, Viacom is entitled to the return of defendants shares of the $131,827,980 excess paid over $17,942,169. 4. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Viacom is

currently engaged in a Resolution Accounting proceeding with defendant Winshall in order to resolve certain disputes regarding the earn-out payments pursuant to the Merger Agreement, including disputes relating to the Overpayment. Winshall has taken the

position that defendants have no obligation to return any part of the Overpayment, regardless of the outcome of the Resolution Accounting proceeding and, further, that he has no responsibility as defendants designated representative with respect to Viacoms efforts to secure a return of the Overpayment from defendants. 5. Defendants are in breach of the Merger Agreement by virtue of

their failure to return their share of the Overpayment or to acknowledge their obligation to do so. In addition, to the extent that defendants, through their designated representative, have taken the position that they are not obligated to return any portion of the Overpayment, defendants have repudiated the Merger Agreement, and Viacom is entitled to damages for that repudiation. In the alternative, if defendants do not have any contractual obligations to Viacom in this regard, they have been unjustly enriched by their retention of money to which they have no right, and Viacom is entitled to recover for unjust enrichment. 6. In view of defendants position that they have no obligation to

return any part of the Overpayment, and that their contractually designated representative has no responsibility with respect to Viacoms efforts to secure a return of the Overpayment, Viacom has commenced this action to enforce its right to the return of defendants shares of the Overpayment.

of business in New York, New York. 8. On information and belief, defendant Walter A. Winshall resides at

entered into the Merger Agreement with Harmonix, the Joining Stockholders of Harmonix, and Walter A. Winshall, as the Stockholders Representative on behalf of the selling stockholders of Harmonix, on September 20, 2006. 109. Under the Merger Agreement, Viacom paid $175 million in Initial

Merger Consideration to the selling stockholders of Harmonix and also agreed, in Section 2.4 of the Merger Agreement, to pay to the selling stockholders Contingent Consideration in the form of earn-outs for the years 2007 and 2008 if the Gross Profit of Harmonix as defined in the Merger Agreement surpassed certain contractual thresholds, as provided in Sections 2.1(c)(ii)(A) and (B) of the Merger Agreement. Specifically, the contractual earn-outs payable to selling stockholders are equal to 3.5 times the amount by which Gross Profit exceeds $32 million in 2007 and $45 million in 2008. 110. The Merger Agreement also sets forth procedures for the

resolution of any disputes that concern the calculation of the earn-outs. Specifically, Sections 2.4(a) and (b) of the Merger Agreement provide the process by which Viacom is 20

to provide to Winshall, as the Stockholders Representative, the bases for its calculations of the 2007 and 2008 Earn-Out Payment Amounts, which Winshall may then timely challenge. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute on their own, they may submit it to the Resolution Accountants for binding resolution, pursuant to Sections 2.4(c) and (e) of the Merger Agreement. 111. Pursuant to Section 2.4(c) of the Merger Agreement, [t]he

resolution of the dispute by the Resolution Accountants will be a final, binding and conclusive resolution of the parties dispute. Furthermore, pursuant to Section 2.4(e) of the Merger Agreement, [t]he determination of the 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount or the 2008 Earn-Out Payment Amount, as applicable (and if any), in accordance with the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.4 shall be final and binding on all parties. 112. On May 23, 2008, Viacom presented Winshall with a preliminary

calculation of the 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount of $149,770,149, and offered to make an initial payment on account based upon this preliminary calculation, without prejudice to any of [its] rights under the Merger Agreement, and expressly reserving all rights and remedies available to it under the Merger Agreement or otherwise. On September 16, 2008, Viacom made that initial payment on account based upon its preliminary calculation of the 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount, providing each selling stockholder with a pro rata portion thereof. On September 26, 2008, Winshall confirmed that this payment was made in the absence of an agreement on the subject and on account. 113. On June 22, 2009, Viacom presented Winshall with a revised

calculation of the 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount and advised Winshall that he should

21

let the former stockholders of Harmonix know that it is possible that a portion of already paid earn-out amounts may be required to be returned so that they can plan accordingly. 114. In the fall of 2009, Viacom separately executed agreements with

certain selling stockholders, who were employees of Harmonix, agreeing to waive any right of recoupment of the selling stockholder employees pro rata portions of the Overpayment. Viacom does not seek to recover any portion of the Overpayment paid to those persons. 115. On January 4, 2010, pursuant to Section 2.4(a) of the Merger

Agreement, Viacom presented Winshall with the final 2007 Earn-Out Statement, containing a calculation of the 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount of zero. Winshall set forth a written description of his disagreements with the 2007 Earn-Out Statement in a 2007 Summary of Issues that he presented to Viacom on January 22, 2010, pursuant to Section 2.4(a) of the Merger Agreement. 116. Pursuant to Section 2.4(c) of the Merger Agreement, Viacom and

Winshall agreed to submit Winshalls disagreements concerning the Earn-Out Payment Amounts in both 2007 and 2008 to Resolution Accountants for resolution. THE RESOLUTION ACCOUNTING PROCEEDING 117. On December 8, 2010, the Resolution Accountants, Viacom, and

Winshall executed an engagement letter, providing for the resolution of Winshalls disagreements. 118. During the course of briefing for the Resolution Accounting

proceeding, Viacom revised its calculation of the final 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount to $17,942,169. Based upon this revision of the final 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount, Viacom has overpaid the 2007 earn-out by $131,827,980. 22

119.

The hearing in the Resolution Accounting proceeding is scheduled

for September 21, 2011, and a decision is expected, by agreement of the Resolution Accountants and the parties, on or about November 20, 2011. 120. Winshall has taken the position that defendants have no obligation

to return any part of the Overpayment, regardless of the outcome of the Resolution Accounting proceeding and, further, that he has no responsibility as defendants designated representative with respect to Viacoms efforts to secure a return of the Overpayment from defendants. FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION Breach of Contract 121. set forth herein 122. The Merger Agreement is a valid and enforceable contract made Viacom repeats and realleges paragraphs 1 through 120 as if fully

and entered into by and among Viacom, its acquisition subsidiary Orpheus Acquisition Corp., Harmonix, the Joining Stockholders of Harmonix, and Walter A. Winshall, as the Stockholders Representative on behalf of the selling stockholders of Harmonix, as of September 20, 2006. 123. Under the Merger Agreement, defendants were entitled to receive

no more than their proportionate share of $17,942,169 in connection with the 2007 earnout. 124. Defendants in fact received their proportionate share of

$149,770,149, but have failed to return their share of the Overpayment or to acknowledge any obligation to do so.

23

125.

Sections 2.4(c) and (e) of the Merger Agreement provide that

defendants are to be bound by the Resolution Accountants determination of the parties disputes in the Resolution Accounting proceeding, including the parties dispute over the 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount. 126. Winshalls assertion to Viacom that defendants have no obligation

to return any part of the Overpayment, regardless of the outcome of the Resolution Accounting proceeding and, further, that he has no responsibility as defendants designated representative with respect to Viacoms efforts to secure a return of the Overpayment from defendants, constitutes a repudiation of the Merger Agreement and an anticipatory breach by defendants insofar as it evinces defendants intention not to be bound by the Resolution Accountants determination, in violation of Sections 2.4(c) and (e). 127. Viacom has suffered damages as a result of defendants breaches,

in an amount to be determined at trial. 128. In view of defendants position that they are not bound by the

Resolution Accounting proceeding if it imposes any obligation on them, Viacom has commenced this action to enforce its right to the return of defendants shares of the Overpayment. SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION Declaratory Judgment 129. set forth herein. 130. An actual controversy now exists between Viacom and defendants Viacom repeats and realleges paragraphs 1 through 128 as if fully

as to the return of the Overpayment. That controversy has been created by defendants

24

failure to return to Viacom their pro rata portion of the Overpayment and by Winshalls insistence that he does not represent defendants in the Resolution Accounting proceeding insofar as it may result in an enforceable determination that recipients of the Overpayment are liable to Viacom. 131. The parties positions with respect to the Overpayment give rise to

an actual controversy that is ripe for judicial determination in that the parties require declaratory relief in order to establish their rights and obligations under the Merger Agreement. 132. By reason of the foregoing, pursuant to the Uniform Declaratory

Judgments Act, Del. Code Ann. tit. 10, 6501, et seq., Viacom is entitled to a declaration of this Court that: (a) (b) defendants breached the Merger Agreement; defendants are bound by any determination in the Resolution

Accounting proceeding; and (c) in the alternative, defendants have been unjustly enriched. THIRD CAUSE OF ACTION Unjust Enrichment 133. set forth herein. 134. Viacoms expense. 135. Through their retention of their pro rata portions of the In the alternative, defendants have been unjustly enriched at Viacom repeats and realleges paragraphs 1 through 132 as if fully

Overpayment, defendants have been enriched.

25

136.

Viacom has been prejudiced to the extent that the Overpayment

exceeds the calculation of the 2007 Earn-Out Payment Amount. 137. Viacoms prejudice is directly related to defendants enrichment,

given that each results from the Overpayment. 138. Upon receipt of the Overpayment, Winshall had knowledge and

accepted that the Overpayment was on account and without prejudice to Viacoms rights under the Merger Agreement, which, upon information and belief, was conveyed to the other defendants. As such, there is no justification for defendants unjust enrichment. 139. If defendants are determined not to have any contractual obligation

to Viacom in this regard, there will be no remedy at law against defendants to cure the unjust enrichment resulting from the Overpayment. 140. Viacom has suffered damages as a result of this unjust enrichment,

in an amount to be determined at trial. PRAYER FOR RELIEF WHEREFORE, Viacom hereby demands judgment as follows: (a) (b) declaring that defendants breached the Merger Agreement; declaring that defendants are bound by any determination in the

Resolution Accounting proceeding; (c) enriched; (d) determined; (e) awarding Viacom the costs and expenses, including attorneys awarding money damages to Viacom in an amount to be declaring, in the alternative, that defendants have been unjustly

fees, incurred in prosecuting this action; and 26

(f)

awarding such other relief as the Court deems just and proper.
