All transfer, sales, value added, stamp duty, and similar Taxes payable in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby (collectively, the “Transfer Taxes”) will be borne by Buyer.

(c)Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the indemnification provided in this Article XI and the indemnification provided in any of the Ancillary Agreements will be the sole and exclusive remedy for all Losses related to or arising at Law, under any statute, or in equity or otherwise out of this Agreement or the Ancillary Agreements or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby (other than claims of or causes of action arising from fraud) and, in furtherance thereof, Buyer waives, from and after the Closing, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law, any and all rights, claims, actions, or causes of action (other than claims or causes of action arising from fraud) it may have against Seller or any of its respective Affiliates relating to the subject matter of this Agreement or any of the Ancillary Agreements, other than the remedies provided in this Article XI, or any other provision of this Agreement or contained in any Ancillary Agreement; provided, however, that Buyer shall be entitled to seek temporary or permanent injunctive relief in order to enforce its rights under this Article XI, or under any other provision of this Agreement or as provided under any of the Ancillary Agreements. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing shall prohibit Buyer from seeking specific performance pursuant to Section 13.11 hereof or pursuant to any Ancillary Agreement to the extent provided for therein.

Section 11.3Indemnification by Buyer.  Buyer hereby agrees to indemnify Seller and its respective Affiliates and their respective officers, directors, and employees (the “Seller Indemnified Parties”) against, and agrees to hold them harmless from, any Loss incurred or suffered by Seller Indemnified Party to the extent such Loss arises from or in connection with the following:

 

(i)

 

(i)

any breach by Buyer of any representation or warranty made by it contained in this Agreement (or any Ancillary Agreement);

23


 

 

(ii)

any breach by Buyer of any of its covenants contained in this Agreement (or any Ancillary Agreement); or

 

(iii)

any Assumed Liability.

Section 11.4Reductions.  The amount of any Loss for which indemnification is provided under this Article XI will be net of (a) any amounts recovered or recoverable by the Indemnified Party under insurance policies or other Third Party indemnification proceeds with respect to such Loss; and (b) any tax benefit realized by the Indemnified Party arising from the incurrence or payment of any such Losses.

Section 11.5Insurance.  The Indemnified Party agrees to pursue and to use its commercially reasonable efforts to collect on any recovery available with respect to any Losses subject to an indemnification claim under insurance policies. In determining the amount of Losses with respect to any claim for indemnification, there shall be deducted from such amount the amount of any proceeds actually received from insurance or from any other Person responsible for Losses by the Indemnified Party (or by any other Buyer Indemnified Party or Seller Indemnified Party, as applicable) in relation to such claim. If the Indemnified Party receives any amounts under applicable insurance policies or from any other Person responsible for Losses, subsequent to an indemnification payment by the Indemnifying Party, then such Indemnified Party shall promptly reimburse the Indemnifying Party for any payment made or expense incurred by such Indemnifying Party in connection with providing such indemnification up to the amount actually received by the Indemnified Party, net of any reasonable expenses incurred by such Indemnified Party in collecting such amount.

Section 11.6Mitigation. The Indemnified Party making a claim hereunder shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate any Losses that such Indemnified Party asserts pursuant to this Article XI.

Section 11.7Procedure.

(a)In order for an indemnified party under this Article XI (an “Indemnified Party”) to be entitled to any indemnification provided for under this Agreement, such Indemnified Party will, promptly following the discovery of the matters giving rise to any Loss, notify the indemnifying party under this Article XI (the “Indemnifying Party”) in writing of its claim for indemnification for such Loss, specifying in reasonable detail the nature of such Loss and the amount of the liability estimated to accrue therefrom; provided, however, that failure to give such prompt notification will not affect the indemnification provided hereunder except to the extent the Indemnifying Party will have been actually prejudiced as a result of such failure (except that the Indemnifying Party will not be liable for any expenses incurred during the period in which the Indemnified Party failed to give such notice). Thereafter, the Indemnified Party will deliver to the Indemnifying Party, within five (5) Business Days after the Indemnified Party’s receipt of such request, all information and documentation reasonably requested by the Indemnifying Party with respect to such Loss.

24


 

(b)If the indemnification sought pursuant hereto involves a claim made by a Third Party against the Indemnified Party (a “Third Party Claim”), the Indemnifying Party will be entitled to participate in the defense of such Third Party Claim and, if it so chooses, to assume the defense of such Third Party Claim with counsel selected by the Indemnifying Party. Should the Indemnifying Party so elect to assume the defense of a Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party will not be liable to the Indemnified Party for any legal expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with the defense thereof. If the Indemnifying Party assumes such defense, the Indemnified Party will have the right to participate in the defense thereof and to employ counsel, at its own expense, separate from the counsel employed by the Indemnifying Party, it being understood that the Indemnifying Party will control such defense. The Indemnifying Party will be liable for the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel employed by the Indemnified Party for any period during which the Indemnifying Party has not assumed the defense thereof (other than during any period in which the Indemnified Party will have failed to give notice of the Third Party Claim as provided above). If the Indemnifying Party chooses to defend or prosecute a Third Party Claim, all of the parties hereto will cooperate in the defense or prosecution thereof. Such cooperation will include the retention and (upon the Indemnifying Party’s request) the provision to the Indemnifying Party of records and information that are reasonably relevant to such Third Party Claim, and making employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information and explanation of any material provided hereunder. If the Indemnifying Party chooses to defend or prosecute any Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party will not settle, compromise, or discharge such Third Party Claim, to the extent that it involves any agreement, performance, or observance by the Indemnified Party, without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed). Whether or not the Indemnifying Party will have assumed the defense of a Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party will not admit any liability with respect to, or settle, compromise, or discharge, such Third Party Claim without the Indemnifying Party’s prior written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed).

3.2.5Late Payments.  To the extent any payments made pursuant to Section 3.1 are not paid within the specified time period, such outstanding payments shall accrue interest from the date due, at the one year LIBOR rate on the last Business Day of the applicable calendar quarter prior to the date on which such payment was due, plus seven (7) percentage point, calculated on the basis of a 360-day year, or, if lower, the maximum rate permitted by law. 

3.2.6Blocked Currency.  If, at any time, legal restrictions prevent Licensee from remitting part or all of a royalty payment due under Section 3.1(d) when due with respect to any country where XOMA Derived Products are sold, Licensee shall promptly notify Licensor in writing and shall continue to provide Net Sales reports for such royalty payments within thirty (30) days after the end of each such Calendar Quarter.  Such royalty payments shall continue to accrue in such country, and Licensee shall deposit such payment in local currency in such country to the credit of Licensor in a recognized banking institution designated by Licensor in writing.

3.2.7Withholding Tax.  If Laws require withholding of income or other taxes imposed upon any royalty payments made by Licensee to Licensor under this Agreement, Licensee shall (i) make such withholding payments as may be required, (ii) subtract such withholding payments from such payments, (iii) submit appropriate proof of payment of the withholding taxes to Licensor within a reasonable period of time, and (iv) promptly provide Licensor with all official receipts with respect thereto.  Licensee shall provide reasonable assistance in order to allow Licensor to obtain the benefit of any present or future treaty against double taxation which may apply to such payments.

3.2.8Records.  Licensee shall keep, and shall require each Selling Party to keep, full, true and accurate books of account containing all particulars that may be necessary for the purpose of calculating all royalty payment amounts payable under Section 3.1(d).

3.2.9Audits.  Upon timely request and at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice from Licensor, Licensor may have an independent public accountant reasonably acceptable to Licensee perform, on behalf of Licensor, an audit of such books and records of the Selling Parties that are reasonably necessary for Licensor’s independent public accountant to report on Net Sales of XOMA Derived Products for the then current calendar year and the two (2) most recently completed calendar years prior to the date of such request and the correctness of any Net Sales report or royalty payment made during such period.  Such audit shall be conducted during regular business hours in such a manner as to not unnecessarily interfere with the Licensee’s normal business activities.  Such audit shall not be performed more frequently than once per calendar year nor more frequently than once with respect to records covering Net Sales of any Product during any give period of time.  Such audits shall be conducted at the expense of Licensor, unless such audit identifies an underpayment of royalty payments of five percent (5%) or more for any XOMA Derived Product over any calendar year, in which case Licensee shall reimburse Licensor for all expenses incurred by Licensor to conduct such audit.

3.2.10Underpayment.  If the audit reveals an underpayment to Licensor, Licensee shall pay the shortfall amount to Licensor within thirty (30) days after the completion of the audit together with the applicable late payment interest amount.

Premises, to modify, improve or otherwise prepare the Licensed Premises for Licensee’s occupancy other than the construction of a demising wall generally in the location noted on Exhibit A, or as to the quality of the Licensed FF&E or whether or not it is functional or can be used by Licensee for any purpose.

  

(c)Licensee shall have no right to enter, and shall prevent its employees, agents, contractors, licensees and invitees from entering, any portions of the Premises other than the Licensed Premises and the portion of the Premises used for ingress and egress to and from the Licensed Premises.  

 

(d)Each party shall use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent its agents, employees or contractors from discovering or otherwise coming into contact with confidential information of the other party, and shall treat in whole such information confidentially in accordance with the Confidentiality Agreement.    

 

(e)This Agreement does not and shall not be deemed to constitute a lease or a conveyance of the Licensed Premises or the Licensed FF&E by Licensor to Licensee, or to confer upon Licensee any right, title, estate or interest in the Licensed Premises or the Licensed FF&E.  This Agreement grants to Licensee only a personal privilege to use and occupy the Licensed Premises and use the Licensed FF&E for the License Term on and subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein.

(a)Licensee is granted this License to use the Licensed Premises and Licensed FF&E during the License Term in consideration of a license fee (“License Fee”) of $9,528.58 per month from the Effective Date through April 30, 2016, and $9,814.44 per month, from May 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016, payable in advance on the 1st of each calendar month by wire transfer to such bank account as Licensor shall notify Licensee of from time to time.  License Fees for any partial month shall be properly prorated on a daily rate basis based on the number of days in the applicable month.

(c)Upon execution of this Agreement, Licensee shall pay to Licensor funds in the amount of $11,718.95 as security for Licensee’s full and timely performance of all of the provisions hereof.  Licensor may (but shall not be required to) use such security deposit (or any portion thereof), together with any interest earned thereon, to cure any default under this Agreement or to compensate Licensor for any damage Licensor incurs as a result of Licensee’s failure to perform any of its obligations under this Agreement.  In such event, and upon written notice specifying the amount of the security deposit so utilized by Licensor and the particular use for which such amount was used, Licensee shall immediately deposit with Licensor an amount sufficient to return the security deposit to an amount equal to the full amount specified, failing which Licensor shall have the same rights and remedies as for the non‑payment of the License Fee.  If Licensee is not in default at the expiration or termination of this Agreement, Licensor shall return to Licensee the security deposit or the balance thereof then held by Licensor, together with any interest earned thereon.

13.Access and Parking.  Licensor and its representatives (and Landlord and its representatives) shall have the right, from time to time throughout the License Term, to enter any portion of the Licensed Premises at all reasonable times during normal business hours to examine the same, to show the same to prospective purchasers, mortgagees or lessees of the Building or any space therein, and to make such repairs and alterations as Licensor or Landlord may deem necessary or desirable to the Licensed Premises or any other portion of the Building.  Licensor shall use reasonable efforts to give notice prior to Licensor entering, and to minimize any interference Licensor may cause with Licensee’s use of, the Licensed Premises.  Licensee shall have access to the Licensed Premises on a 24/7 basis.  Access to the Licensed Premises shall be controlled by a card key system maintained by [Landlord].  Licensee shall be given [●]

17.Relationship.  Licensor and Licensee acknowledge and agree that this Agreement does not and will not create any landlord-tenant relationship, licensor-licensee relationship or any privity of contract of any type between Landlord and Licensee.  Further the parties agree that Landlord’s consent to this Agreement does not act as a waiver of any of Landlord’s rights under the Prime Lease.

 

18.Broker.  Licensor and Licensee each represent and warrant one to another that neither of them has employed any broker in carrying on the negotiations, or had any dealings with any broker, relating to this License.

NOW, THEREFORE, for valuable consideration received, Contractor and Subcontractor agree as follows:

3.During the period between the Effective Date and the earlier of (1) the date on which the Government approves the Novation Request and enters into a Novation Agreement, (2) cancellation of this Agreement due to the Government’s failure to approve the Novation Request (collectively, the “Interim Period”), or (3) expiration of the NIAID Contract, Subcontractor shall meet all of the objectives, perform all of the tasks and technical requirements, file all necessary reports, and timely provide all of the deliverables set forth in the NIAID Contract and the associated Statement of Work dated [___], as amended, which is incorporated into the NIAID Contract by reference.

4.All payments, expenses, cost reimbursements, fees, and other similar payments (collectively, the “Payments”) attributable to performance of the NIAID Contract are to be for the account of Subcontractor during the Interim Period.  

5.Subcontractor shall indemnify and hold Contractor harmless against any and all claims, losses, or liabilities arising in connection with Subcontractor’s performance (including any omission or failure to act by the Subcontractor, or its employees, agents or Affiliate(s)) of the NIAID Contract, subject to the time limitations listed in Section 2.

6.Any of the following shall be prepared by Subcontractor in the name of Contractor and submitted for approval to (and, if required, certification by) Contractor:

Any notice or demand shall be deemed to have been given upon actual delivery.  

8.To the extent permitted by law, Contractor shall cause Payments received from the Government by Contractor for Subcontractor’s performance of the NIAID Contract to be to be deposited into a bank account in the name of Subcontractor within five (5) business days after the Contractor’s date of receipt.

9.Upon Government approval of the Novation Request, this Agreement shall be automatically terminated without any further action by the Parties; provided, however, that (i) Subcontractor shall continue to be responsible for all obligations and liabilities relating to the NIAID Contract arising during the term of this Agreement; and (ii) the Parties’ duties under Sections 2-7, 10-12, 14-16, 18, and 23 of this Agreement shall survive such termination.

10.During the Interim Period, any Subcontractor dispute (or any dispute arising from Subcontractor’s lower tier subcontractors or suppliers) originally derived or resulting in any way from any act, obligation, omission, directive, or actual or constructive change by the Government that is not disposed of by agreement may be drafted and properly prepared by Subcontractor for presentation to the Contractor.  Subject to Contractor’s prior approval, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, the Contractor will present the dispute or claim to the Government for a final decision pursuant to the applicable FAR Disputes clause.  If the Government’s final decision has an adverse effect on the Subcontractor, then Subcontractor shall have the right to assert Contractor’s right of appeal in the name of Contractor to the appropriate Board of Contract Appeals or to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and to prosecute such appeal under the applicable Disputes clause, subject to Contractor’s prior approval.  Contractor agrees to give Subcontractor prompt notice of any decision relating to Subcontractor’s dispute.  Subcontractor shall have full responsibility for preparing and presenting documents related to any Subcontractor dispute with the Government and shall bear all expenses, including attorneys’ fees, in connection therewith and any appeal shall be at no cost to Contractor.  Contractor and Subcontractor shall be equally bound by the decision of the Board of Contract Appeals or Court of Federal Claims on any appeal pursuant to this paragraph.

11.If, prior to the expiration of the NIAID Contract, the Government refuses to allow Subcontractor to perform the NIAID Contract during the Interim Period, or has not acted on the Novation Request within eighteen (18) months from the Effective Date of this Agreement, or refuses to approve the Novation Request under substantially the same terms and conditions in effect at the time of the Closing, Contractor and Subcontractor shall for a period of thirty (30) days consult in good faith on how to proceed.

12.Each Party to this Agreement represents and warrants to the other Party that (a) this Agreement constitutes a valid and binding obligation of such Party, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms and (b) the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement by such Party will not violate any of its organizational documents or any agreement, judgment, order, decree, or other obligation or legal requirement to which such Party is subject or by which it is bound.

G-3


13.All Federal Acquisition Regulation (“FAR”) clauses set forth or incorporated in the NIAID Contract that are by their terms required to be included in subcontracts are incorporated in this Agreement with the same force and effect as if set forth in full text.  This Agreement will be deemed to incorporate the same version of each FAR clause that is incorporated into the NIAID Contract, and all other clauses required by applicable Law.

14.The Parties agree that a breach of any of the terms, conditions, or other obligations under this Agreement may result in irreparable harm to the non-breaching Party.  The failure of either Party to perform any of the terms, conditions, and obligations established by this Agreement shall give rise to a right in the non-breaching Party to seek enforcement of this Agreement in a court of equity by a decree of specific performance or injunction.  Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, this remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to any other remedies the Parties may have.

15.This Agreement is governed by and shall be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without reference to its choice of law rules, except that all questions of interpretation of any agency regulation, FAR provision, or applicable federal law shall be interpreted according to the federal common law of government contracts as enunciated and applied by federal boards of contracts appeals and courts.

16.Each Party irrevocably consents and agrees that any action, suit or proceeding (except a dispute arising under Section 10) arising in connection with this Agreement (for purposes of this Section 16, a “Legal Dispute”) shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California or the federal courts located therein and consents to personal jurisdiction within the courts of the State of California or the federal courts located therein.  Each Party waives, and agrees not to assert, as a defense in any Legal Dispute, that it is not subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of California or the federal courts located therein.  Each Party agrees that a final judgment in any action, suit or proceeding described in this Section 16 after the expiration of any period permitted for appeal and subject to any stay during appeal shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions.

17.Subcontractor’s relationship with Contractor will be that of an independent contractor and nothing in this Agreement should be construed to create a partnership, agency, joint venture, or employer-employee relationship.

18.Neither this Agreement nor any interest herein may be assigned by Subcontractor, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of Contractor (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), other than to an Affiliate of Subcontractor that assumes Subcontractor’s obligations under this Agreement, in which case no consent of Contractor would be required.

19.This Agreement and the Purchase Agreement, together with the schedules and attachments annexed thereto, constitute the entire agreement between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersede all past contracts, representations, and agreements with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.  This Agreement will not be deemed or construed to be modified, amended, rescinded, canceled or waived in whole or in part except by written amendment that refers specifically to the applicable section(s) of this Agreement and that is signed by the Parties and, to the extent necessary, approved by the Government.

G-4


20.Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement will be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid.  If any provision of this Agreement is found invalid, such provision will be ineffective only to the extent of such invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of this Agreement.

21.The Parties may execute this Agreement in counterparts, including electronic mail/PDF or other electronic counterparts, each of which shall be an original and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

22.This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure solely to the benefit of the Parties and permitted successors and assigns, and nothing in this Agreement is intended to confer upon any other person any rights or remedies of any nature.

23.The failure of a Party to exercise any right or remedy shall not be deemed to constitute a waiver of such right or remedy in the future.  No waiver shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of any other provision, nor shall any waiver constitute a continuing waiver unless otherwise expressly provided.

Exhibit J

TRANSITION SERVICES AGREEMENT

This TRANSITION SERVICES AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”) is dated as of [______] [__], 2015, by and between XOMA (US) LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “Seller”) and Nanotherapeutics, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Buyer”).

RECITALS

WHEREAS, as set forth in the Asset Purchase Agreement, dated November 4, 2015, between Buyer and Seller (the “Purchase Agreement”), Buyer has agreed to purchase from Seller and Seller has agreed to sell, transfer, assign and deliver to Buyer the Purchased Assets (as such term and each other capitalized term used herein without definition is defined in the Purchase Agreement) against delivery of the Purchase Price set forth in the Purchase Agreement;

WHEREAS, the Purchase Agreement provides that Seller shall enter into a transition services agreement with Buyer pursuant to which Seller shall provide certain transitional services to Buyer with respect to the BOT Business following the Closing Date for a limited period of time to facilitate the transfer of the Purchased Assets; and

WHEREAS, the parties desire hereby to set forth the terms and conditions upon which Seller shall provide such services to Buyer.

NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereby agree as follows:

1.Provision of Services; Standard of Performance.

1.1Commencing on the date hereof, Seller shall provide or, cause one or more of its Affiliates or third parties to provide to Buyer the services (each, a “Service” and collectively, the “Services”) specified on an applicable service schedule or schedules attached hereto as Exhibit A, (each such schedule, a “Service Schedule”) for the period of time specified thereon, unless a Service is earlier terminated or extended in accordance with the terms hereof.  Each Service shall become subject to this Agreement upon execution of a Service Schedule related thereto.  With respect to each Service to be performed by Seller hereunder, the parties shall set forth the following information in the applicable Service Schedule: (i) the time period during which the Service will be provided; (ii) a summary and description of the Service to be provided; (iii) the Fees (as defined in Section 2.1), or estimated Fees, if any, for the Service; and (iv) any other terms applicable thereto or such other information with respect to the Service as the parties may agree.

1.2Unless a different Performance Standard (as defined in Section 1.4) is set forth in the applicable Service Schedule, Seller agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Services in substantially the same manner and at substantially the same level as such Services were performed by Seller and/or its Affiliates for the BOT Business immediately prior to the date hereof.

J - 1


 

1.3The Services shall be used by Buyer only for the purposes of conducting the BOT Business and operating the Purchased Assets substantially in the manner that they were conducted and operated, or proposed to be conducted or operated by Seller immediately prior to the Closing Date, and shall not be used for any other purposes, except as may be otherwise agreed to by Seller in writing.  Unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties, with respect to any Service, Seller shall not be required to provide a level of service which is higher than the level of service provided by Seller with respect to the BOT Business or the Purchased Assets as of the Closing Date.

1.4Seller shall provide to Buyer a monthly report setting forth the Services performed during the preceding month with reference to any performance standards described on any Service Schedule (the “Performance Standards”) and containing such additional information as may, from time to time, be reasonably requested by Buyer with respect to any Additional Services (as defined in Section 3.3 below).

1.5Seller shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide to Buyer reasonable notice of any scheduled interference with Seller’s operating or other systems, including downtime for network maintenance, which is reasonably likely to interrupt the performance of or the availability of equipment necessary for the provision of any Service.

2.Payment.

2.1Buyer shall pay each month to Seller the fee specified for each Service rendered during such month as set forth on the applicable Service Schedule (the “Fees”).

2.2On the last day of each calendar month, Seller shall invoice all Fees owed by Buyer for the Services provided for such month.  Unless contesting in good faith the Fees set forth on the invoice, Buyer shall pay such Fees within thirty (30) days of receipt of the invoice by check drawn on good funds or wire transfer of immediately available funds.  The invoice shall be accompanied by reasonable documentation supporting such Fees owed and shall set forth the Services or Additional Services provided, the Fees payable for each Service or Additional Service and invoices for Services provided by Seller’s Affiliates or third parties, if any.

2.3Seller shall notify Buyer of any payment obligations with respect to payroll, accounts payable, royalty and other payments, as applicable, owing from week to week by Buyer, if any.  Buyer shall within ten (10) days of receipt of the notice remit to Seller, by check drawn on good funds or wire transfer of immediately available funds, an amount equal to the total amount of Buyer’s obligations (from week to week) as specified by Seller to Buyer.

2.4Except as provided in the applicable Service Schedule for a specific Service, Seller shall not be obligated to: (i) hire any additional employees or create new or additional employee or independent contractor positions; (ii) maintain the employment of any specific employee; (iii) purchase, lease, license or otherwise acquire any new or additional assets, equipment or software; (iv) pay any costs related to the transfer or

J - 2


 

conversion of Buyer’s data to Seller or to any alternate supplier of Services after the term; (v) engage any alternate supplier of Services; or (vi) modify, alter or amend any existing Seller specifications and policies, in order to perform or complete performance of any Service.  Any such costs incurred by Seller to take any of the above actions at the request of Buyer in connection with the performance of any Service shall be borne by Buyer, except as set forth on the applicable Service Schedule, and shall be invoiced as Fees pursuant to Section 2.2.

2.5In the event that the provision of the Services or the relationship created between the parties hereunder gives rise to any Tax (other than a Tax based on income), such Tax shall be the responsibility of Buyer.

3.Term; Addition and Reduction of Services.

3.1Subject to the terms of this Section 3 and of Section 7, the provision of the Services shall commence on the date hereof and, with respect to each Service, shall terminate upon one (1) year from the Closing Date, unless a different period is set forth on the applicable Service Schedule.

3.2Buyer may terminate any Service by giving thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to Seller.  Any requested termination of a Service pursuant to this Section 3.2 shall become effective at the end of such thirty (30) day notice period.  Seller shall thereafter no longer be obligated to provide such Service and Buyer shall thereafter no longer be obligated to pay for such Service (except with respect to any Fees incurred up to such date).  The applicable Service Schedule shall thereafter be amended to reflect the termination of the Service.

3.3If Buyer desires to extend the term of any Service (or any part thereof) or add any additional service (collectively, the “Additional Services”) arising out of or relating to the Services, Buyer shall give Seller thirty (30) days’ prior written notice, which notice shall include reasonable details relating to such request.  Seller shall not have any obligation to extend any term or provide any Additional Service.  Upon execution of such amendment or new Service Schedule, any Additional Service shall be deemed to be a “Service” for all purposes hereunder.

3.4Seller shall reduce the quantity of any Service provided hereunder upon thirty (30) days’ prior written notice from Buyer.  Any requested reduction of a Service pursuant to this Section 3.4 shall become effective at the end of such thirty (30) day notice period.  The Fees payable with respect to such Service shall be reduced proportionately in accordance with the fee schedule set forth on the applicable Service Schedule with respect to such Service, provided that Buyer shall be obligated to reimburse Seller for any reasonable out-of-pocket expenses or costs attributable to such reduction.  The applicable Service Schedule shall thereafter be amended to reflect the reduction of such Service.

J - 3


 

3.5Seller shall not be required to provide any of the Services to the extent that the performance of such Services becomes materially more expensive for Seller unless Buyer agrees to pay for the additional cost.

4.Cooperation; Records; Access.

4.1The parties agree to fully cooperate in good faith with each other in connection with the provision of the Services and the matters related to or arising hereunder, including, without limitation, Seller’s cooperation with Buyer to enable Buyer to establish its own infrastructure to perform the Services independently of Seller as soon as practicable after the Closing Date; provided, however, that nothing in this Section 4 or elsewhere in this Agreement shall require Seller to incur any out-of-pocket cost in connection with rendering its cooperation to Buyer as hereby contemplated.

4.2Each of the parties shall create and maintain full and accurate books in connection with the provision of the Services.  For a period of no less than two (2) years following the expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, the parties will maintain, in accordance with their standard document retention procedures, documentation supporting the information relevant to cost calculations contained in the Service Schedules and cooperate with each other in making such information available as needed in the event of a U.S. Tax audit.

4.3Subject to Buyer’s third party confidentiality and data protection obligations, Buyer shall make available during regular business hours (or otherwise upon reasonable prior notice) to Seller or its agents (i) all personnel designated by Buyer to receive or oversee the Services; and (ii) all books and records maintained by Buyer in connection with this Agreement and all other information or materials reasonably requested by Seller to facilitate Seller’s performance of this Agreement; provided, however, that any such requests do not unreasonably interfere with the operation of the day-to-day business affairs of Buyer.

4.4Subject to Seller’s third party confidentiality and data protection obligations, Seller shall make available during regular business hours (or otherwise upon reasonable prior notice) to Buyer or its agents (i) all personnel designated by Seller to provide the Services; (ii) all books and records maintained by Seller in connection with this Agreement and all other information or materials reasonably requested by Buyer for the purpose of exercising general oversight and monitoring of the performance of the Services; and (iii) on Seller’s premises, all records that Seller has prepared or maintained in providing the Services in order for Buyer to verify the accuracy of the Fees and the proper performance of Services; provided, however, that any such requests do not unreasonably interfere with the operation of the day-to-day business affairs of Seller.

4.5Each party shall cooperate with and assist the other party in obtaining any third party consents necessary for the performance of the Services, including, without limitation, any required consent under any intellectual property license or real property license or other occupancy agreement.  The out-of-pocket costs and expenses of obtaining any such consents shall be borne by Buyer.  In the event that the parties are unable to obtain any required consent, the parties shall negotiate in good faith reasonable modifications of the Services so that such consents are not required.

J - 4


 

4.6For any work performed on Buyer’s premises, Seller shall comply with all security, confidentiality, safety and health policies of Buyer.  Seller shall take all necessary precautions to prevent, and shall be responsible for, any injury to any Persons (including, without limitation, employees of Buyer) or damage to property (including, without limitation, Buyer’s property) arising from or relating to Seller’s performance of the Services or the use by Seller of any Buyer equipment, tools, facility or other property, whether or not such claim is based upon its condition or on the alleged negligence of Buyer in permitting its use.

5.Management Process.

5.1On the Closing Date, each party shall designate a project manager (a “Project Manager”) to report and discuss issues with respect to the provision of the Services.  The Project Managers shall meet (either in person or by electronic means) to discuss the performance of the Services as often as reasonably necessary to ensure the orderly provision of the Services, and shall have authority to address and remedy problems related to the provision of the Services.  Each party shall designate successor Project Managers in the event that a designated individual is not available to perform such role hereunder.

5.2In the event that any dispute arises under this Agreement, the parties agree to negotiate in good faith to resolve such dispute prior to seeking relief in accordance with Sections 3.10 and/or 3.11 of the Purchase Agreement.  Either party may at any time deliver a notice to the other party that it wishes to refer a dispute to the Project Managers.  Following receipt of such notice, the Project Managers shall negotiate in good faith to resolve such dispute within a period of ten (10) days (or such longer period of time as such Project Managers may agree in writing).  If at the end of such period, the Project Managers have not fully resolved the dispute, the Project Managers shall within ten (10) days appoint one expert satisfactory to both parties to mediate the dispute and shall share equally the costs thereof.  If within twenty (20) days following the appointment of such mediator the parties have not fully resolved the dispute, either party may seek relief in accordance with Sections 3.10 and/or 3.11 of the Purchase Agreement.

6.Intellectual Property.

6.1As used herein, “Work Product” shall include, without limitation, all Intellectual Property Rights (as defined in this Section 6.1) and any related work-in-progress, improvements or modifications to any Intellectual Property Rights that are created, developed or conceived (alone or with others) in connection with the Services. “Intellectual Property Rights” means any invention or discovery, whether patentable or nonpatentable, or copyrightable or non-copyrightable, to the extent that it is conceived or reduced to practice in performing the Services.

6.2Buyer agrees that all Work Product arising during the term of this Agreement (excluding any Confidential Information (as defined in the Confidentiality Agreement) of Buyer) shall be the property of Seller and hereby assigns all its rights in such Work Product and in all related Intellectual Property Rights to Seller.  Buyer

J - 5


 

acknowledges that Seller, in its sole discretion, shall have the right to license such Work Product or any portion thereof, and/or incorporate such Work Product or any portion thereof into products or services, for use by other licensees or customers of Seller.  At Seller’s request and expense, Buyer shall assist and cooperate with Seller in all reasonable respects and shall execute documents, give testimony and take further acts as reasonably requested by Seller to acquire, transfer, maintain and enforce Intellectual Property Rights and other legal protection for such Work Product.

6.3Subject to Buyer’s performance of its obligations hereunder, Seller hereby grants to Buyer a worldwide, non-exclusive, non-transferable license during the term of this Agreement to use, within Buyer’s enterprise only, the Work Product solely for Buyer’s internal business purposes.

6.4Buyer hereby disclaims all warranties of any kind, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise, with respect to any Confidential Information of Buyer or other information or materials supplied by Buyer to Seller hereunder, including, without limitation, any warranties with respect to any specifications for the Work Product or other deliverables required hereunder.

6.5Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to grant, directly or by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any right or license with respect to any technology or other Intellectual Property Rights, and each party retains all right, title and interest in and to their respective technologies and other Intellectual Property Rights.

6.6Buyer hereby agrees to comply with all export laws and regulations of the U.S. Department of Commerce and all other U.S. Government Agencies, including, without limitation, the Export Administration Regulations of the U.S. Department of Commerce Bureau of Export Administration, and further agrees not to export, or allow the export or re-export of, any Confidential Information of Seller in violation of such laws and/or regulations, or without all required consents.

7.Termination.

7.1Subject to the terms of this Section 7, this Agreement shall terminate on the date on which the provision of all Services have been terminated pursuant to Section 3.

J - 6


 

(b)upon written notice to the other party if the other party has filed against it any involuntary petition in bankruptcy or similar proceeding seeking its reorganization, liquidation or the appointment of a receiver, trustee or liquidator for all or substantially all of its assets, whereupon such petition shall not be dismissed within sixty (60) days after the filing thereof, or if the other party shall (A) apply for or consent in writing to the appointment of a receiver, trustee or liquidator of all or substantially all of its assets; (B) file a voluntary petition or admit in writing its inability to pay its debts as they become due; (C) make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; (D) file a petition or an answer seeking reorganization or an arrangement with creditors or take advantage of any insolvency law; or (E) file an answer admitting the material allegations of a petition filed against it in any bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency proceedings or similar proceedings; or

(c)upon written notice to the other party if any Force Majeure Event (as defined in Section 9 hereof) occurs and any Services or obligations required to be performed hereunder are interrupted or interfered with for a period in excess of sixty (60) days.

7.3Upon the termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 7, Seller shall no longer be obligated to provide any Services and Buyer shall no longer be obligated to pay for any Services (except with respect to any Fees incurred up to the date of such termination).

7.4The provisions of Sections 6.3, 7, 9, 10, and 11 shall survive any termination of this Agreement.

8.Liability.

8.1Subject to Article 11 of the Purchase Agreement, Seller shall, to the extent permitted by law, indemnify and hold harmless Buyer and its agents and Affiliates from and against all Losses incurred or sustained by Buyer where such Losses result from the breach of any representation or covenant contained in this Agreement by Seller.  Seller’s aggregate liability to Buyer for Losses in connection with this Agreement shall not exceed the aggregate Fees paid by Buyer to Seller pursuant to this Agreement.  Except as provided above, Seller shall have no liability whatsoever to Buyer for any error, act or omission in connection with the Services to be rendered hereunder, and Seller’s sole responsibility to Buyer with respect to the Services shall be as follows:  (i) in the event of Seller’s error or omission in connection with the Services, to furnish correct information and to provide any necessary adjustment in the Services at no additional cost or expense to Buyer; and (ii) in the event of Seller’s failure to deliver any Service because of a Force Majeure Event, to use reasonable efforts, to make the Services available and/or to resume performing the Services as promptly as reasonably practicable.

8.2Subject to Article 11 of the Purchase Agreement, Buyer shall, to the extent permitted by law, indemnify and hold harmless Seller and its agents and Affiliates from and against all Losses incurred or sustained by Seller where such Losses result from the breach of any representation or covenant contained in this Agreement by Buyer.

J - 7


 

8.3Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, neither party shall have any liability to the other party hereunder for compensatory, punitive, special, incidental or consequential Losses (including loss of profits), regardless of the circumstances under which such Losses arose, even if advised of the possibility of such Losses.

9.Force Majeure.  Neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure to perform any obligations (other than payment obligations) hereunder resulting from any cause, condition or event beyond the reasonable control of the party affected, including, but not limited to, acts of God, fire, flood, earthquake, war, terrorism, riot, government action, strike, labor trouble or shortage, curtailment of business (including scheduled or unscheduled shutdowns of any manufacturing facility) or inability to obtain material, utilities, equipment or transportation (a “Force Majeure Event”).  The party claiming the benefit of this provision shall promptly notify the other party of a Force Majeure Event and attempt in good faith to resume performance as soon as commercially reasonable.  Neither party shall be obligated to settle a dispute or otherwise take any action which is not commercially reasonable to terminate a Force Majeure Event.

10.Confidential Information.

10.1Without the prior written consent of the other party, each party agrees not to (i) disclose Confidential Information to any third party or (ii) use any Confidential Information except as necessary to perform its obligations under this Agreement.  Any Confidential Information disclosed prior to the date hereof shall be protected by the terms of this Section 10.  Each party shall use no less than reasonable care in protecting any Confidential Information received.  Each party is and shall remain the sole owner of all right, title and interest in and to its respective Confidential Information.  Neither party shall possess any right, title or interest in or any lien on Confidential Information of the other party.  All Confidential Information disclosed hereunder shall be on an “AS IS” basis with no warranties, express or implied.

10.2Each party shall limit disclosure of Confidential Information to its agents and Affiliates who have a bona fide need for Confidential Information to carry out the purposes of this Agreement and who have agreed to observe the terms of this Section 10. Each party shall be responsible for any breaches of this Section 10 by its agents and Affiliates.  Seller agrees to consult with Buyer and to use commercially reasonable efforts to put in place adequate procedures and make appropriate personnel assignments, in each case as of the Closing Date, in order to ensure that Confidential Information of Buyer is not used by Seller for the benefit of its business or otherwise misused.

10.3Upon the earlier to occur of (i) the termination of this Agreement, (ii) such time as any Confidential Information ceases to be required by the party receiving such Confidential Information to perform or receive the Services or (iii) a reasonable request of a party, all Confidential Information of a party (and any copies thereof) shall be returned to that party and any such Confidential Information of a party (and any copies thereof) stored in computer or other electronic archival systems shall be deleted or erased, in each case within fifteen (15) days following such termination or request.  Upon the request of a party, the other party shall certify in writing that all such Confidential Information has been returned or destroyed.

J - 8


 

11.Licenses, Permits and Third Party Consents.  Each party shall obtain and maintain all permits, approvals and licenses and other applicable Governmental Orders, and shall obtain any third party consents, necessary or appropriate to perform its obligations hereunder and shall at all times comply with the terms and conditions of such permits, approvals and licenses or consents.  Unless otherwise provided in the applicable Service Schedule, the costs of obtaining any permits, approvals, licenses, sublicenses or approvals and third party consents, shall be borne by Seller.

12.Independent Contractor.  Each of Buyer and Seller shall be an independent contractor in the performance of its respective obligations hereunder.  Nothing in this Agreement shall create or be deemed to create a partnership, joint venture or a relationship of principal and agent or of employer and employee between Buyer and Seller, or between any of the agents, contractors or suppliers of Buyer, on the one hand, and of Seller, on the other hand.

13.Notices.  Any notices authorized to be given hereunder shall be in writing and deemed given, if delivered personally or by overnight courier, on the date of delivery if a Business Day, or if not a Business Day, on the first Business Day following delivery, or if mailed, three days after mailing by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, and in each case, addressed, as follows:
