Doyle ("Executive"). WHEREAS, the Company, Holdings and Executive are parties to a senior management agreement dated as of March 6, 2003 (as amended from time to time, the "Existing Employment Agreement"); WHEREAS, the Company, Holdings and Executive desire to amend and restate the Existing Employment Agreement and enter into this Agreement, which includes CSC as a party hereto; WHEREAS, simultaneously with the execution of this Agreement, Stephen R. Kerrigan is entering into an amended and restated senior management agreement; WHEREAS, CSC has, on or about the date hereof and pursuant to an effective registration statement on Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, completed the registered offer and sale of its Income Deposit Securities (including shares of Class A Common Stock and senior secured notes of CSC underlying such Income Deposit Securities) ("IDSs") and senior secured notes not forming a part of any IDS (the offer and sale of such securities being collectively referred to as the "IPO"); WHEREAS, as part of a series of corporate reorganizations and other transactions in connection with the IPO (the "Transactions"), voting power of CSC was given on or about the date hereof to Holdings through its consolidated ownership of all the outstanding shares of CSC's Class B Common Stock; WHEREAS, as part of the Transactions, Coinmach Laundry Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("Coinmach Laundry"), became a subsidiary of CSC; WHEREAS, the Company is wholly-owned by Coinmach Laundry; WHEREAS, Executive is the owner of (i) 4,865,898 Common Units of Holdings, of which 2,318,493 Common Units (the "Carried Common Units") were issued to Executive in exchange for 2,318,493 shares of common stock of Coinmach Laundry (previously issued to Executive pursuant to the Equity Participation Agreement), and 847,405 Common Units (the "Co-Invest Common Units") were issued to Executive in exchange for 847,405 shares of common stock of Coinmach Laundry (previously issued to Executive in connection with Coinmach Laundry's going-private transaction in July of 2000), and (ii) 410.5 Class C Preferred Units (the "Preferred Units") (subject to increase in connection with the Transactions). NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows: ARTICLE I PROVISIONS RELATING TO EXECUTIVE UNITS 1.1 Vesting of Carried Common Units. Carried Common Units which have become vested, together with all of the Co-Invest Common Units, are referred to herein as "Vested Common Units" and all other Carried Common Units are referred to herein as "Unvested Common Units." In addition to any vesting requirements in respect of the Carried Common Units contained in the Management Contribution Agreement, immediately prior to the closing of (i) any Significant Sale of equity securities which results in any person, or group of related persons not affiliated with GTCR owning equity securities of Holdings possessing the power to elect (without reference to any special or default voting rights) a majority of the members of the Holdings Board (a "Change of Control"), or (ii) a sale of all or substantially all of Holdings' assets, all Unvested Common Units will become Vested Common Units. In addition, if Executive's employment with either CSC or the Company is terminated (i) by the CSC Board (in the case of employment with CSC) or the Coinmach Board (in the case of employment with the Company) without Cause, or (ii) by Executive for Good Reason, and in each case no CSC Event of Default (in the case of termination of employment with CSC) or Company Event of Default (in the case of termination of employment with the Company) has occurred and is continuing, all Unvested Common Units will become Vested Common Units. 1.2 Put Option. (a) Upon the consummation of a Qualified Disposition, Executive shall have the right to require that Holdings repurchase up to 50% of each class of Executive Units, pursuant to the terms of this Section 1.2(a) (the "Qualified Disposition Put Option"). The purchase price for each Common Unit pursuant to the Qualified Disposition Put Option shall be the price per Unit paid to GTCR in connection with the Qualified Disposition, and the purchase price for each Preferred Unit pursuant to the Qualified Disposition Put Option shall be the lesser of (i) the liquidation value of such Unit (plus all accrued and unpaid dividends thereon) and (ii) the price per Unit of such class paid to GTCR in connection with the Qualified Disposition. Within 30 days after the date of the Qualified Disposition, Holdings shall notify Executive of the occurrence of such event and Executive may elect to exercise the Qualified Disposition Put Option by giving written notice to Holdings of such election, setting forth the number of Common Units and/or Preferred Units to be repurchased by Holdings, within 15 days after the date of delivery of Holdings' notice to Executive. In the event of the exercise of a Qualified Disposition Put Option, CSC and the Company will, subject to the terms of any of their then outstanding indebtedness be jointly and severally obligated to transfer to Holdings an amount of money at least equal to the aggregate purchase price of the Executive Units subject to the Qualified Disposition Put Option, in order that Holdings can satisfy its obligations under such Qualified Disposition Put Option. The closing of the repurchase pursuant to the Qualified Disposition Put Option shall take place on a date designated by Holdings, but in any event not later than 270 days after the date of the Qualified Disposition. At such closing, Executive shall -2- deliver to Holdings the certificates representing the Common Units and/or Preferred Units to be repurchased by Holdings, and, subject to Section 1.6 hereof, Holdings shall deliver to Executive the purchase price for such Units by cashier's or certified check or wire transfer. (b)Upon the termination of Executive's employment hereunder (i) by the Coinmach Board (in the case of employment with the Company) or by the CSC Board (in the case of employment with CSC), in each case without Cause, or (ii) by Executive for Good Reason, Executive shall have the right to require that Holdings repurchase all Units of each class of Executive Units held by Executive pursuant to the terms of this Section 1.2(b) (the "Termination Put Option"), and in the event the Termination Put Option is exercised, CSC and the Company will be jointly and severally obligated to transfer to Holdings an amount of money at least equal to the aggregate purchase price of the Executive Units subject to the Termination Put Option, in order that Holdings can satisfy its obligations under such Termination Put Option; provided, however, that Holdings shall only be obligated to repurchase Executive's Executive Units pursuant to the Termination Put Option at such time as the CSC Board, in its good faith judgment, determines that the Company and/or CSC (as the case may be) has sufficient assets to repurchase Executive's Executive Units without a material negative impact on CSC's and/or the Company's working capital or liquidity (taking into account any reasonably foreseeable acquisitions or capital expenditures of such parties). The purchase price for each Executive Unit pursuant to the Termination Put Option shall be the Fair Market Value thereof on the Date of Termination. Within 30 days after the Date of Termination as described in subsections (i) and (ii) above, Executive may elect to exercise the Termination Put Option by giving written notice to Holdings of such election, setting forth the number of Executive Units to be repurchased by Holdings. The closing of the repurchase pursuant to the Termination Put Option shall take place on a date designated by Holdings, but in any event not later than 15 days after the date of receipt of Executive's written notice of election to exercise the Termination Put Option. At such closing, Executive shall deliver to Holdings the certificates representing the Executive Units to be repurchased by Holdings, and, subject to Section 1.6 hereof, Holdings shall deliver to Executive the purchase price for such Units by cashier's or certified check or wire transfer. 1.3 Repurchase Option. (a) In the event Executive violates Section 2.3(a) of this Agreement (a "Noncompete Breach"), or in the event Executive's employment by CSC and its Subsidiaries (including but not limited to the Company) terminates for any reason (a "Termination"), the Executive Units (whether held by Executive or one or more of Executive's transferees, other than Holdings or GTCR) will be subject to repurchase by Holdings first, the Other Senior Managers second and the Investors third pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 1.3 (the "Repurchase Option"). (b) If the Repurchase Option becomes exercisable because of a Noncompete Breach or a Termination resulting from CSC's or the Company's termination of Executive's employment for Cause, then, the purchase price for each Executive Unit will be the lower of (i) Executive's Original Cost for such Unit and (ii) the Fair Market Value of such Unit on the Date of Termination. If Executive's employment terminates other than as described in the preceding sentence, the purchase price for each (y) Executive Unit (other than an Unvested Common Unit) -3- shall be the Fair Market Value of such Unit and (z) Unvested Common Unit shall be Executive's Original Cost for such Unit, in each instance as of the date of the related Repurchase Notice or Investor Notice (as hereinafter defined), as the case may be. (c) Holdings may, at the option of the Holdings Board, elect to purchase all or any portion of the Executive Units from time to time by delivering written notice (the "Repurchase Notice") to the Other Senior Managers, the Investors and the holder or holders of such Executive Units from time to time during the 180 days after the Noncompete Breach or Termination, as the case may be. The Repurchase Notice will set forth the number of Executive Units, including the number of Unvested Common Units and Vested Common Units, to be acquired from the recipient holder, the aggregate consideration to be paid for such Units and the time and place for the closing of the transaction. (d) If for any reason Holdings has not elected to purchase all of the Executive Units pursuant to the Repurchase Option, the Other Senior Managers shall be entitled to exercise the Repurchase Option for any or all of the Executive Units, including the Unvested Common Units and the Vested Common Units, Holdings has not elected to purchase (the "Available Units"), by giving written notice to Holdings and the holder(s) of the Available Units to be repurchased during the 30 days after the date of delivery to the Other Senior Managers of the Repurchase Notice (the "Management Repurchase Notice") setting forth the number of Available Units each Other Senior Manager is willing to purchase. If the Other Senior Managers elect to purchase an aggregate number of Units greater than the number of Available Units, the Available Units shall be allocated among the Other Senior Managers pro rata based on the number of Common Units owned by each Other Senior Manager on a Fully Diluted Basis. As soon as practicable, and in any event within ten days after the expiration of the 30-day period set forth above, Holdings shall notify the holder(s) of the Available Units and the Investors as to the number of Units being purchased from such holder(s) by the Other Senior Managers (the "Supplemental Management Repurchase Notice"). At the time Holdings delivers the Supplemental Management Repurchase Notice to the holder(s) of the Available Units, Holdings shall also deliver written notice to each Other Senior Manager and the Investors setting forth the number of Units such Other Senior Manager is entitled to purchase, the aggregate purchase price and the time and place of the closing of the transaction and, in the notice to the Investors, a statement of the number, type and purchase price of Available Units available for purchase by the Investors. (e) If for any reason the Other Senior Managers have elected not to purchase any or all of the Available Units pursuant to Section 1.3(d) above, the Investors may elect to purchase any or all of the Available Units not purchased by the Other Senior Managers by giving written notice to Holdings and the holder(s) of the Available Units to be repurchased within 30 days after the date of delivery to the Investors of the Supplemental Management Repurchase Notice (the "Investor Repurchase Notice") setting forth the number of Available Units the Investors are willing to purchase. If the Investors elect to purchase an aggregate number greater than the number of Available Units, the Available Units shall be allocated among the Investors pro rata based upon the number of Common Units owned by each Investor on a Fully Diluted Basis. As soon as practicable, and in any event within ten days after the expiration of the 30-day period set forth above, Holdings shall notify each holder of Available Units as to the number of Units being purchased from such holder by the Investors (the "Supplemental Investor Repurchase Notice"). At the time Holdings delivers the Supplemental Investor Repurchase Notice to the holder(s) of -4- Available Units, Holdings shall also deliver written notice to each Investor setting forth the number of Units such Investor is entitled to purchase, the aggregate purchase price and the time and place of the closing of the transaction. (f) Each closing of the purchase of the Executive Units pursuant to the Repurchase Option shall take place on the date designated by Holdings, the Other Senior Managers or the Investors in the related Repurchase Notice, Management Repurchase Notice, or Investor Repurchase Notice, as the case may be, but in any event not later than 270 days after the date of the Noncompete Breach or Termination. At such closing, Executive shall deliver to Holdings, the Other Senior Managers and/or the Investors, certificates representing the Executive Units to be repurchased by Holdings, the Other Senior Managers and/or the Investors, and Holdings, the Other Senior Managers, and/or the Investors, as the case may be, will pay for the Executive Units to be purchased pursuant to the Repurchase Option, subject to Section 1.6 hereof and the terms below, on the date of the closing of the Repurchase Option. (g) Any payment made pursuant to this Section 1.3 shall be payable, at the option of Holdings, in cash, by check or with Class A Preferred Units; provided, that if Holdings elects to pay Executive with Class A Preferred Units, upon the request of Holdings, Executive shall enter into documentation with Holdings with respect to the issuance of such Class A Preferred Units on terms and conditions reasonably acceptable to Holdings. In addition, Holdings may pay the total purchase price for such Units by offsetting amounts outstanding under any bona fide debts owed by Executive to Holdings. Holdings, the Other Senior Managers and the Investors will be entitled to receive customary representations and warranties from the sellers regarding such sale and to require that all sellers' signatures be guaranteed. (h) If within six months following the repurchase of Executive Units pursuant to the Repurchase Option under this Section 1.3, (i) a Significant Sale or a Public Offering occurs and (ii) the amount received by Executive for Vested Common Units pursuant to the Repurchase Option is less than the amount that Executive would have received for such Vested Common Units had Holdings not repurchased such Vested Common Units pursuant to the Repurchase Option and had Executive disposed of such Vested Common Units (or such other securities into which such Vested Common Units may have been exchanged or converted) pursuant to such Significant Sale or Public Offering, then Executive shall be entitled to receive the benefit of such higher valuation for the Vested Common Units sold under the Repurchase Option. Subject to Section 1.6 hereof, the excess of (x) the amount which Executive would have received in such Significant Sale or Public Offering assuming the sale of his Vested Common Units purchased by exercise of the Repurchase Option in connection with such transaction, over (y) the purchase price of the Vested Common Units paid to Executive under the Repurchase Option (the "Excess"), shall be paid by Holdings (or any designee of Holdings) to Executive by wire transfer of immediately available funds (to such account designated in writing by Executive) promptly upon consummation of any such transaction; provided, however, if (i) the repurchase of Executive Units under this Section 1.3 was paid by Holdings with Class A Preferred Units and in connection with a Significant Sale the holders of Class A Preferred Units received consideration other than cash in exchange for such Class A Preferred Units, then Holdings may pay the Excess to Executive in the same form of consideration which the holders of Class A Preferred Units received in such Significant Sale, or (ii) the repurchase of Executive Units under this Section 1.3 was paid by Holdings with Class A Preferred Units and in connection with a Public Offering the -5- Class A Preferred Units were converted into common stock or another form of equity security, then Holdings may pay the Excess to Executive in the form of common stock or such other equity security into which the Class A Preferred Units were converted in connection with such Public Offering; provided, further, if the repurchase of Executive Units under this Section 1.3 was paid by Holdings with Class A Preferred Units and at the time of the Significant Sale or the Public Offering there were no issued and outstanding Class A Preferred Units other than Class A Preferred Units held by Executive, then Executive shall be paid the Excess by Holdings (or any designee of Holdings), at the option of Holdings, by wire transfer of immediately available funds (to such account designated in writing by Executive) or in the form of compensation received by the holders of Common Units, in either case promptly upon consummation of any such transaction. (i)In the event Holdings elects to repurchase Executive Units pursuant to this Section 1.3, CSC and the Company will be jointly and severally obligated to transfer to Holdings an amount of money at least equal to the aggregate purchase price of the Executive Units subject to such repurchase, in order that Holdings can complete such repurchase in accordance with the terms of this Section 1.3. 1.4 Restrictions on Transfer. (a) Transfer of Executive Units. Executive shall not, directly or indirectly, transfer, sell, assign, pledge, offer or otherwise dispose of any interest in any Executive Units (a "Transfer") except pursuant to (i) Section 1.2, Section 1.3, Section 1.4(c), Section 1.4(d) or Section 1.4(e) hereof, (ii) Section 3(a) (participation rights), Section 3(c) (permitted transfers) and Section 5 (sale of the company) of the Securityholders Agreement, or (iii) a Public Sale (clauses (i) through (iii) collectively referred to herein as "Exempt Transfers"). Prior to effecting any Transfer of Executive Units (other than (y) to Holdings, to any Other Senior Manager or to the Investors or (z) in connection with a Public Sale or Significant Sale), Executive shall obtain from each transferee their written agreement to be bound by the provisions of Section 1.4 of this Agreement for the benefit of Holdings, the Other Senior Managers and the Investors. (b) Sale Notice. Prior to making any Transfer (other than an Exempt Transfer), Executive will give written notice (the "Sale Notice") to Holdings, the Other Senior Managers and the Investors. The Sale Notice will disclose in reasonable detail the number of Units to be transferred and the terms and conditions of the proposed Transfer and, if known, the identity of the prospective transferee(s). Executive will not consummate any such Transfer until 90 days after the Sale Notice has been given to Holdings, the Other Senior Managers and the Investors, unless the parties to the Transfer have been fully determined pursuant to this Section 1.4(b), Section 1.4(c) and Section 1.4(d) prior to the expiration of such 90-day period. (The date of the first to occur of such events is referred to herein as the "Authorization Date"). (c)First Refusal Rights. Holdings may elect to purchase all (but not less than all) of the Executive Units to be Transferred upon the same terms and conditions as those set forth in the Sale Notice by delivering a written notice of such election to Executive, each Other Senior Manager and each Investor within 30 days after the Sale Notice has been given to Holdings. In the event Holdings elects to repurchase Executive Units pursuant to this Section 1.4(c), CSC and the Company will be jointly and severally obligated to transfer to -6- Holdings an amount of money at least equal to the aggregate purchase price of the Executive Units subject to such repurchase, in order that Holdings can complete such repurchase in accordance with the terms of this Section 1.4(c). If Holdings has not elected to purchase all of the Executive Units to be Transferred, the Other Senior Managers may elect to purchase all (but not less than all) of the Executive Units to be Transferred upon the same terms and conditions as those set forth in the Sale Notice by giving written notice of such election to Executive, Holdings and the Investors within 60 days after the Sale Notice has been given to the Other Senior Managers. The Other Senior Managers' rights hereunder shall be allocated among the Other Senior Managers pro rata based on the number of Common Units owned by each Other Senior Manager on a Fully Diluted Basis. If Holdings and the Other Senior Managers have not elected to purchase all of the Executive Units to be Transferred, the Investors may elect to purchase all (but not less than all) of the Executive Units to be Transferred upon the same terms and conditions as those set forth in the Sale Notice by giving written notice of such election to Executive, Holdings and each Other Senior Manager within 90 days after the Sale Notice has been given to the Investors. If Holdings, the Other Senior Managers or the Investors do not elect to purchase all of the Executive Units specified in the Sale Notice, Executive may Transfer the Executive Units specified in the Sale Notice at a price and on terms no more favorable to the transferee(s) thereof than specified in the Sale Notice during the 30-day period immediately following the Authorization Date. Any Executive Units not Transferred within such 30-day period will be subject to the provisions of this Section 1.4(c) upon subsequent Transfer. (d) Co-Sale Rights. The Investors may elect to participate in the contemplated Transfer by delivering written notice to Executive within 90 days after delivery of the Sale Notice to the Investors. If any of the Investors (each a "Participating Investor") have elected to participate in such Transfer, and any of the Units specified in the Sale Notice are Common Units, Executive and the Participating Investors shall be entitled to sell in the contemplated Transfer, at the same price and on the same terms, a number of Common Units equal to the product of (x) the quotient determined by dividing the percentage of Common Units owned by such Person by the aggregate percentage of Common Units owned by Executive and all Participating Investors and (y) the number of Common Units to be sold in the contemplated Transfer. For example, if the Sale Notice contemplated a sale of 100 Common Units by Executive, and if Executive was at such time the owner of 30% of Holdings' outstanding Common Units (on a fully-diluted basis) and if one Participating Investor elects to participate and such Participating Investor owns 20% of Holdings' outstanding Common Units (on a fully-diluted basis), Executive would be entitled to sell 60 Common Units ((30% / 50%) x 100 Units) and the Participating Investor would be entitled to sell 40 Common Units ((20% / 50%) x 100 Units). If any of the Executive Units specified in the Sale Notice consist of Class C Preferred Units, Executive and the Participating Investors shall be entitled to sell in the contemplated Transfer, at the same price and on the same terms, a number of Class C Preferred Units equal to the aggregate number of Class C Preferred Units to be Transferred multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the Class C Unreturned Capital plus the Class C Unpaid Yield of all Class C Preferred Units held by such Person and the denominator of which is the aggregate Class C -7- Unreturned Capital plus the Class C Unpaid Yield of all Class C Preferred Units held by Executive and the Participating Investors. For example, if the Sale Notice contemplated a sale of 100 Class C Preferred Units by Executive, and if the Class C Unreturned Capital plus the Class C Unpaid Yield on all Class C Preferred Units held by Executive was at such time $1,080,000, and if one Participating Investor elects to participate and the Class C Unreturned Capital plus the Class C Unpaid Yield on all Class C Preferred Units held by such Participating Investor was at such time $2,160,000, Executive would be entitled to sell 33 1/3 Class C Preferred Units ((1,080,000 / 3,240,000) x 100 Units) and the Participating Investor would be entitled to sell 66 2/3 Class C Preferred Units ((2,160,000 / 3,240,000) x 100 Units). Executive will use his best efforts to obtain the agreement of the prospective transferee(s) to the participation of the Investors in the contemplated Transfer and will not Transfer any Executive Units to the prospective transferee(s) if such transferee(s) refuse(s) to allow the participation of the Investors. (e) Permitted Transfers. The restrictions contained in this Section 1.4 shall not apply with respect to any Transfer of Executive Units pursuant to applicable laws of descent and distribution or among (i) Executive and (ii) Executive's Family Members; provided that such restrictions will continue to be applicable to the Executive Units after any such Transfer and the transferees of such Executive Units have agreed in writing to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement. (f) Legend. The certificates representing the Executive Units will bear a legend in substantially the following form: "THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED (THE "ACT"), AND MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF AN EFFECTIVE REGISTRATION STATEMENT UNDER THE ACT OR AN EXEMPTION FROM REGISTRATION THEREUNDER. THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER, CERTAIN REPURCHASE OPTIONS AND CERTAIN OTHER AGREEMENTS SET FORTH IN A SENIOR MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT BY AND AMONG COINMACH SERVICE CORP. ("COINMACH"), COINMACH CORPORATION, COINMACH HOLDINGS, LLC AND ROBERT M. DOYLE, DATED , 2004. COINMACH MAY REQUEST A WRITTEN OPINION OF COUNSEL (FROM COUNSEL ACCEPTABLE TO COINMACH) SATISFACTORY TO COINMACH, TO THE EFFECT THAT REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH SALE, PLEDGE OR HYPOTHECATION, OR OTHER TRANSFER. A COPY OF SUCH AGREEMENT MAY BE OBTAINED AT COINMACH'S PRINCIPAL PLACE OF BUSINESS WITHOUT CHARGE." 1.5 Payments. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary contained in this Agreement, payments (including, but not limited to, in the form of securities) to be made to Executive pursuant to this Agreement shall be made only to the extent permitted by the financing -8- arrangements of Holdings and its Subsidiaries in effect at the time such payments are required to be made; provided, however, such payments shall be made at such time that they are permitted to be made by such financing arrangements. 1.6 Opinion. In connection with the Transfer of any Executive Units (other than an Exempt Transfer or in connection with a Significant Sale), the holder thereof shall deliver written notice to Holdings describing in reasonable detail the Transfer or proposed Transfer, which, if requested by Holdings, shall be accompanied by an opinion of counsel which (to Holdings' reasonable satisfaction) is knowledgeable in securities law matters to the effect that such Transfer of Executive Units may be effected without registration of such Executive Units under the Securities Act. In addition, if the holder of the Executive Units delivers to Holdings an opinion of counsel that no subsequent Transfer of such Executive Units shall require registration under the Securities Act, Holdings shall promptly upon such contemplated Transfer deliver new certificates for such Executive Units which do not bear the Securities Act legend set forth in Section 1.4(f) (but which may bear any applicable contractual restrictions on Transfer). ARTICLE II PROVISIONS RELATING TO EMPLOYMENT 2.1 Employment. CSC agrees to employ Executive, and Executive accepts such employment, for the period from the date hereof until such employment is terminated (the "CSC Employment Period").

(iii) Limitations on Multiple Severance.

Executive agrees and acknowledges that the potential harm to CSC and the Company of the non-enforcement of Section 2.2 and this Section 2.3 outweighs any potential harm to Executive of its enforcement by injunction or otherwise. Executive acknowledges that he has carefully read this Agreement and has given careful consideration to the restraints imposed upon him by this Agreement, and is in full accord as to their necessity for the reasonable and proper protection of confidential and proprietary information of CSC and the Company now existing or to be developed in the future.
