Supplemental Exhibit EE1 to Purchase Agreement Number 2484

 

 

 

 

1. ENGINE ESCALATION.

The Aircraft Basic Price of each Aircraft set forth in Table 1 of the Purchase Agreement includes an aggregate price for General Electric Aircraft GEnx series engines and all accessories, equipment and parts provided by the engine manufacturer (Engines). The adjustment in Engine Price applicable to each Aircraft (Engine Price Adjustment) will be determined at the time of Aircraft delivery in accordance with the following formula:

 

Pa = (P) (L + M) - P

Where:

Pa = Engine Price Adjustment.

L = [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

x ( ECI 

ECIb ) where ECIb is the base year index
(as set forth in Table 1 of this
Purchase Agreement)

M = [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] x [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] ) where CPIb is the base year index(as set forth in Table 1 of this Purchase Agreement)

P = Engine Price per Aircraft (as set forth in Table 1 of this Purchase Agreement).

ECI is a value determined using the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] a three-month arithmetic average value (expressed as a decimal and rounded to the nearest tenth) using the values for the [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] months prior to the month of scheduled delivery of the applicable Aircraft. As the Employment Cost Index values are only released on a quarterly basis, the value released for the month of March will be used for the months of January and February; the value for June used for April and May; the value for September used for July and August; and the value for December used for October and November.

[CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] is a value determined using the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT], calculated as a 3-month arithmetic average of the released monthly values (expressed as a decimal and rounded to the nearest tenth) using the values for the [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] months prior to the month of scheduled delivery of the applicable Aircraft.

As an example, for an Aircraft scheduled to be delivered in the month of July, the months [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] of the preceding year will be utilized in determining the value of ECI and [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT].

Note: i. In determining the values of L and M, all calculations and resulting values will be expressed as a decimal rounded to the nearest ten-thousandth.

ii. [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] is the numeric ratio attributed to [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] in the Engine Price Adjustment formula.

iii. [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] is the numeric ratio attributed to [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] in the Engine Price Adjustment formula.

iv. The denominators (base year indices) are the actual average values reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics. The actual average values are calculated as a 3-month arithmetic average of the released monthly values (expressed as a decimal and rounded to the nearest tenth) using the values for the [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] months prior to the Engine Price base year. The applicable base year and corresponding denominator is provided by Boeing in Table 1 of this Purchase Agreement.

v. The final value of Pa will be rounded to the nearest dollar.

vi. [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

 

2. Values to be Used if Bureau of Labor Statistics are [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT].

2.1 [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

2.2 Notwithstanding Article 2.1 above, if prior to the scheduled delivery month of an Aircraft the Bureau of Labor Statistics changes the base year for determination of the ECI and [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] values as defined above, such re-based values will be incorporated in the Engine Price Adjustment calculation.

2.3 [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

2.4 If within 12 months of Aircraft delivery, the published index values are revised due to an acknowledged error by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Engine Price Adjustment will be re-calculated using the revised index values (this does not include those values noted as preliminary by the Bureau of Labor Statistics). A credit memorandum or supplemental invoice will be issued for the Engine Price Adjustment difference. Interest charges will not apply for the period of original invoice to issuance of credit memorandum or supplemental invoice.

Note: i. The values released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and available to Boeing 30 days prior to the first day of the scheduled delivery month of an Aircraft will be used to determine the ECI and [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT] values for the applicable months (including those noted as preliminary by the Bureau of Labor Statistics) to calculate the Engine Price Adjustment for the Aircraft invoice at the time of delivery. The values will be considered final and no Engine Price Adjustments will be made after Aircraft delivery for any subsequent changes in published Index values, subject always to paragraph 2.4 above.

ii. The maximum number of digits to the right of the decimal after rounding utilized in any part of the Engine Price Adjustment equation will be 4, where rounding of the fourth digit will be increased to the next highest digit when the 5th digit is equal to 5 or greater.

3.  Engine Warranty

Boeing has obtained from General Electric Company (GE) the right to extend to Customer the provisions of GE's warranty as set forth below (herein referred to as the "Warranty"); subject, however, to Customer's acceptance of the conditions set forth herein. Accordingly, Boeing hereby extends to Customer and Customer hereby accepts the provisions of GE's Warranty as hereinafter set forth, and such Warranty shall apply to all GEnx type engines (including all Modules and Parts thereof), as such terms are defined in the Warranty (GEnx type Engines) installed in the Aircraft at the time of delivery or purchased from Boeing by Customer for support of the Aircraft except that, if Customer and GE have executed, or hereinafter execute, a general terms agreement (Engine GTA), then the terms of the Engine GTA shall be substituted for and supersede the provisions of the Warranty and the Warranty shall be of no force or effect and neither Boeing nor GE shall have any obligation arising therefrom. In consideration for Boeing's extension of the GE Warranty to Customer, Customer hereby releases and discharges Boeing from any and all claims, obligations and liabilities whatsoever arising out of the purchase or use of such GEnx type Engines and Customer hereby waives, releases and renounces all its rights in all such claims, obligations and liabilities.

The Warranty is contained in the Warranty and Product Support Plan set forth in Exhibit C to the applicable purchase contract between GE and Boeing. Copies of the Warranty and Product Support Plan shall be provided to Customer by Boeing upon request.
