$500 Challenge - LexHacks 2015 - LexPredict

The LexPredict challenge is to develop basic tools for processing contracts. Specifically, you will use the sample contract data below to develop algorithms to:

-identify the parties to an agreement
-identify effective date segment and date
-identify termination clause segment(s) and date(s)

Take, for example, the following text:

THIS GUARANTEE AGREEMENT dated as of September 30, 2008 (this "Guarantee") is entered into by FREIGHTCAR AMERICA, INC., a Delaware corporation (the "Guarantor"), in favor of BANK OF AMERICA, N.A., a national banking association, as the administrative agent (in such capacity, the "Administrative Agent") for certain financial institutions (each a "Lender", and collectively the "Lenders") from time to time party to the Credit Agreement (defined below).

The "correct" answers are:

Parties: FREIGHTCAR AMERICA, INC.; BANK OF AMERICA,N.A.
Effective date: September 30, 2008

Prize: $500

Full details of the challenge can be found on GitHub at: https://github.com/LexPredict/lexhacks-2015-hackathon/

    Hi Xiao,
    Any language is fine, though personal bonus points from me for solutions in Python or Java.
