If the parties are unable to agree upon an equitable amendment within ten (10) Days after such fifteen (15)-Day period has expired, then either party shall be entitled to serve thirty (30) Days' notice of termination on the other party with respect to only such Affected Performance. The remaining portion of the Agreement that does not involve the Affected Performance shall 13 continue in full force and effect. FIS shall be entitled to be paid for that portion of the Affected Performance which it completed through the termination date. 13.2. TIME OF PERFORMANCE AND INCREASED COSTS. FIS' time of performance under this Agreement shall be adjusted, if and to the extent reasonably necessary, in the event and to the extent that (i) FNT fails to timely submit material data or materials in the prescribed form or in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement, (ii) FNT fails to perform on a timely basis, the material functions or other responsibilities of FNT described in this Agreement, (iii) FNT or any governmental agency authorized to regulate or supervise FNT makes any special request, which is affirmed by FNT and/or compulsory on FIS, which affects FIS' normal performance schedule, or (iv) FNT has modified the LSI Processes, Documentation or Modifications in a manner affecting FIS' burden. In addition, if any of the above events occur, and such event results in an increased cost to FIS, FIS shall estimate such increased costs in writing in advance and, upon FNT's approval, FNT shall be required to pay any and all such reasonable, increased costs to FIS upon documented expenditure, up to 110% of the estimate. 14.

MISCELLANEOUS. 16.1. ASSIGNMENT. Except as set forth herein, neither party may sell, assign, convey, or transfer the licenses granted hereunder or any of such party's rights or interests, or delegate any of its obligations hereunder without the written consent of the other party. Any such consent shall be conditioned upon the understanding that this Agreement shall be binding upon the assigning party's successors and assigns.

Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, FNT may not assign this Agreement to a Competitor. 15 16.2. SEVERABILITY. Provided FNT on behalf of the Permitted Subsidiaries retains quiet enjoyment of the LSI Processes, if any one or more of the provisions contained herein shall for any reason be held to be unenforceable in any respect under law, such unenforceability shall not affect any other provision of this Agreement, but this Agreement shall be construed as if such unenforceable provision or provisions had never been contained herein, provided that the removal of such offending term or provision does not materially alter the burdens or benefits of either of the parties under this Agreement or any Exhibit or Schedule, in which case the unenforceable portion shall be replaced by one that reflects the parties original intent as closely as possible while remaining enforceable. 16.3. THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES. Except as set forth herein, the provisions of this Agreement are for the benefit of the parties and not for any other person. Should any third party institute proceedings, this Agreement shall not provide any such person with any remedy, claim, liability, reimbursement, cause of action, or other right. 16.4. GOVERNING LAW; FORUM SELECTION; CONSENT OF JURISDICTION. This Agreement will be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Florida, USA, without regard to principles of conflict of laws. The parties agree that the only circumstance in which disputes between them, not otherwise excepted from the resolution process described in Section 109, will not be subject to the provisions of Section 10 is where a party makes a good faith determination that a breach of the terms of this Agreement by the other party requires prompt and equitable relief. Each of the parties submits to the personal jurisdiction of any state or federal court sitting in Jacksonville, Florida with respect to such judicial proceedings. Each of the parties waives any defense of inconvenient forum to the maintenance of any action or proceeding so brought and waives any bond, surety or to other security that might be required of any party with respect thereto. Any party may make service on the other party by sending or delivering a copy of the process to the party to be served at the address set forth in Section 14.1 above. Nothing in this Section, however, shall affect the right of any party to serve legal process in any other manner permitted by law or in equity. Each party agrees that a final judgment in any action or proceeding so brought shall be conclusive and may be enforced by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law or in equity. 16.5. EXECUTED IN COUNTERPARTS. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be an original, but such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same document. 16.6. CONSTRUCTION. The headings and numbering of sections in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not be construed to define or limit any of the terms or affect the scope, meaning or interpretation of this Agreement or the particular section to which they relate. This Agreement and the provisions contained herein shall not be construed or interpreted for or against any party because that party drafted or caused its legal representative to draft any of its provisions. 16 16.7. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement, including the Exhibits and Schedules attached hereto and the agreements referenced herein constitute the entire agreement between the parties, and supersedes all prior oral or written agreements, representations, statements, negotiations, understandings, proposals, marketing brochures, correspondence and undertakings related thereto. 16.8. AMENDMENTS AND WAIVERS. This Agreement may be amended only by written agreement signed by duly authorized representatives of each party. No waiver of any provisions of this Agreement and no consent to any default under this Agreement shall be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by or on behalf of both parties. No course of dealing or failure of any party to strictly enforce any term, right or condition of this Agreement shall be construed as a waiver of such term, right or condition. Waiver by either party of any default by the other party shall not be deemed a waiver of any other default. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time prior to the Sale of FIS or any offering and sale to the public of any shares or equity securities of FIS or any of its Subsidiaries pursuant to a registration statement in the United States, this Agreement may not be amended without the prior written consent of Thomas H. Lee Equity Fund V, L.P. ("THL") and TPG Partners III, L.P.

THL and TPG are intended third party beneficiaries of this Agreement solely with respect to this Section 16.8. "FIS Group" means FIS, Subsidiaries of FIS, and each Person (defined below) that FIS directly or indirectly controls (within the meaning of the Securities Act) immediately after the Effective Date, and each other Person that becomes an Affiliate of FIS after the Effective Date.

REMEDIES CUMULATIVE. Unless otherwise provided for under this Agreement, all rights of termination or cancellation, or other remedies set forth in this Agreement, are cumulative and are not intended to be exclusive of other remedies to which the injured party may be entitled by law or equity in case of any breach or threatened breach by the other party of any provision in this Agreement. Use of one or more remedies shall not bar use of any other remedy for the purpose of enforcing any provision of this Agreement. 16.10. TAXES. All charges and fees to be paid under this Agreement are exclusive of any applicable sales, use, service or similar tax which may be assessed currently or in the future on the LSI Processes or related services provided under this Agreement. If a sales, use, services or a similar tax is assessed on the LSI Processes or related services 17 provided to FNT for the benefit of the Permitted Subsidiaries under this Agreement, FNT will pay directly, reimburse or indemnify FIS for such taxes as well as any applicable interest and penalties. FNT shall pay such taxes in addition to the sums otherwise due under this Agreement. FIS shall, to the extent it is aware of taxes, itemize them on a proper VAT, GST or other invoice submitted pursuant to this Agreement.
