Product (the “Co-Development Opt-Out Right”) by providing AbbVie with written notice of such election (the “Co-Development Opt-Out Notice”) at any time during the Co-Development Opt-Out Period.  

(b)If the FDA recommends in writing (or in minutes approved by the FDA) during the conduct and prior to completion of any Clinical Study that follows the completion of the Cohort Expansion Study(ies), that a BLA should be submitted for such study, and AbbVie notifies Licensor in writing that AbbVie commits to do so, then the Co-Development Opt-Out Period also will include the [***] period commencing upon the receipt of such recommendation and all Development Costs incurred in connection with such ongoing Clinical Study (whether such Development Costs are incurred before or after such decision) will be subject to the cost sharing provisions of Section 3.7.1; provided that such BLA is filed with no further Clinical Studies.  

(c)If the FDA decides that, after completion of the Cohort Expansion Study(ies), that such Cohort Expansion Study(ies) support applications for Regulatory Approval without the need for further Clinical Studies, then the Co-Development Opt-Out Period will be the [***] period commencing upon the receipt of such decision.

(d)If Licensor exercises its Co-Development Opt-Out Right in accordance with Section 3.6.5(a) for a given Licensed Product, AbbVie will bear all subsequent costs for the Development activities for such Licensed Product. Licensor will have no obligation to share subsequent costs for the Development activities for such Licensed Product and will have no right to share profits for such Licensed Product.    

3.6.6Co-Development Products.  For each Co-Development Product, each Party will use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to perform the Development activities for such Co-Development Product assigned to it in the First Clinical Development Plan or any Subsequent Clinical Development Plan, as applicable.  If Licensor has not exercised its Co-Development Opt-Out Right for the First Licensed Product, the JDC will consider whether any Phase II or Phase III studies will be conducted to support the filing of a Drug Approval Application for an orphan Indication and, if so, whether Licensor may conduct any part of such Clinical Studies for such orphan Indication. If Licensor has not exercised its Co-Development Opt-Out Right for the First Licensed Product, the JDC will serve as a forum for deciding if, after completion of the Development Activities set forth in the CD71 Phase II Development Plan, other Clinical Studies for such Licensed Product will be performed in addition to Phase III study(s) and, if so, the appropriate Party to perform such Clinical Studies.

3.7Development Costs.

3.7.1Development Costs Relating to Co-Development Activities.  

(a)For each Licensed Product, if Licensor does not provide a Co-Development Opt-Out Notice during the Co-Development Opt-Out Period, Licensor and AbbVie will each bear their Pro Rata Percentage of the Development Costs in accordance with the First Clinical Development Plan or Subsequent Clinical Development Plan, as applicable, for such Licensed Product and such Licensed Product will be deemed a “Co-Development Product”.

6.1.5[***]

6.2Licensor Payments to [***].

DB1/ 86201718.40


Ex-U.S. Territory, on a Licensed Product-by-Licensed Product basis, AbbVie shall pay to Licensor a royalty on Net Sales of each Licensed Product solely in the Ex-U.S. Territory, and in each case of subparagraphs (a) and (b) above, excluding Net Sales of each Licensed Product in any country or other jurisdiction for which the Royalty Term for such Licensed Product in such country or other jurisdiction has expired, during each Calendar Year at the following rates:

(i)If Licensor has not exercised its Co-Development Opt-Out Rights with respect to a Licensed Product, for periods before expiration of the applicable Co-Development Opt-Out Period and for periods after expiration of the applicable Co-Development Opt-Out Period in the Ex-US Territory, [***]; provided that if Licensor exercises the Profit Share Opt-Out Right, such deduction shall apply to the entire Territory and not just the Ex-US Territory; and

Notwithstanding the foregoing, (A) AbbVie has the right to deduct [***] of all payments by AbbVie in connection with Blocking Third Party Platform IP and (B) AbbVie shall be responsible for [***] of all payments by AbbVie in connection with Blocking Third Party Payload IP;

(c)in the event that a court or a governmental agency of competent jurisdiction requires AbbVie or any of its Affiliates or Sublicensees to grant a compulsory license to a Third Party permitting such Third Party to make and sell a Licensed Product in a country or other jurisdiction in the Territory, then, for the purposes of calculating the royalties payable with respect to such Licensed Product under Section 7.6.1, [***] of Net Sales of such Licensed Product in such country or other jurisdiction shall be disregarded;

(d)in the event that, and in such case from and after the date on which, a Licensed Product is Exploited in a country or other jurisdiction and is not covered by

7.8Profit or Loss in the United States.   In the event that Licensor has not exercised its Co-Development Opt-Out Right with respect to a Licensed Product, the terms and conditions of this Section 7.8 shall govern each Party’s rights and obligations with respect to Net Profits and Net Losses relating to such Co-Development Product.  Subject to Section 7.9, and beginning on the Effective Date (a) Licensor shall receive its Pro Rata Percentage of all Net Profits, and bear its Pro Rata Percentage of all Net Losses, as applicable, with respect to the Co‑Development Products in the United States, and (b) AbbVie shall receive its Pro Rata Percentage of all Net Profits, and bear its Pro Rata Percentage of all Net Losses, as applicable, with respect to the Co‑Development Products in the United States. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Licensor exercises its Profit Share Opt-Out right for a Co-Development Product, effective on the delivery of the applicable Profit Share Opt-Out Notice, (i) Licensor shall no longer receive its Pro Rata Percentage of all Net Profits, or bear its Pro Rata Percentage of all Net Losses incurred or accrued following delivery of the Profit Share Opt-Out Notice with

- 60 -

respect to such Co‑Development Product and (ii) AbbVie will be responsible for all Net Losses and receive all Net Profits for such Co‑Development Product thereafter.

7.9 Calculation and Payment of Net Profit or Net Loss Share.

7.9.1Reports and Payments in General.  In the event that Licensor has not exercised its Co-Development Opt-Out Right with respect to a Licensed Product, each Party shall report to the other Party, within [***] after the end of each Calendar Quarter following expiration of the applicable Co-Development Opt-Out Period, with regard to Net Sales and Allowable Expenses incurred by such Party for such Co-Development Product during such Calendar Quarter in the United States in a manner sufficient to enable the other Party to comply with its reporting requirements; provided that in the case of the first Calendar Quarter for which such report is due, each Party shall additionally report all Allowable Expenses incurred by such Party prior to such Calendar Quarter with respect to such Co-Development Product.  Such report shall specify in reasonable detail all deductions allowed in the calculation of such Net Sales in the United States and all expenses included in Allowable Expenses, and, if requested by a Party, any invoices or other supporting documentation for any payments to a Third Party that individually exceed [***] (or such other amount approved by the JCC) shall be promptly provided.  Within [***] after receipt of such reports, the Parties shall reconcile all Net Sales in the United States and Allowable Expenses to ascertain whether there is a Net Profit or Net Loss and payments shall be made as set forth in subsections (a) and (b) below, as applicable.

(a)If there is a Net Profit for such Calendar Quarter, then AbbVie shall reimburse Licensor for Allowable Expenses incurred by Licensor in such Calendar Quarter and shall pay to Licensor, an amount equal to Licensor’s Pro Rata Percentage of the Net Profit for such Calendar Quarter; or

(b)If there is a Net Loss for such Calendar Quarter, then the Party that has borne less than its share of the Allowable Expenses in such Calendar Quarter shall make a reconciling payment to the other Party to assure that each Party bears its share of such Net Loss during such Calendar Quarter.

7.9.2Last Calendar Quarter.  No separate payment shall be made for the last Calendar Quarter in any Calendar Year.  Instead, at the end of each such Calendar Year, a final reconciliation shall be conducted by comparing the share of Net Profit or Net Loss to which a Party is otherwise entitled for such Calendar Year pursuant to Sections 7.8 and 7.9.1 against the sum of all amounts (if any) previously paid or retained by such Party for prior Calendar Quarters during such Calendar Year, and the Parties shall make reconciling payments to one another no later than [***] after the end of such Calendar Quarter, if and as necessary to ensure that each Party receives for such Calendar Year its share of Net Profits and bears its share of Net Losses in accordance with Section 7.8.

7.9.3FTE Records and Calculations.  Each Party shall record and account for its FTE effort with respect to each CD71 PDC or Licensed Product to the extent that such FTE efforts are included in Allowable Expenses that are, or may in the future be, shared under this Agreement, and shall report such FTE effort to the JCC, if requested (such request not to be more than on a quarterly basis).  Each Party shall calculate and maintain records of FTE effort incurred by it in the same manner as used for other products developed by such Party,

- 61 -

DB1/ 86201718.40


unless instructed by the JCC to employ other procedures, in which case such other procedures shall be applied equally to both Parties.  

7.10Mode of Payment; Offsets.  All payments to either Party under this Agreement shall be made by deposit of Dollars in the requisite amount to such bank account as the receiving Party may from time to time designate by notice to the paying Party.  For the purpose of calculating any sums due under, or otherwise reimbursable pursuant to, this Agreement (including the calculation of Net Sales expressed in currencies other than Dollars), a Party shall convert any amount expressed in a foreign currency into Dollar equivalents using its, its Affiliate’s or Sublicensee’s standard conversion methodology consistent with Accounting Standards.  AbbVie shall have the right to offset any payment that is owed by Licensor but not paid against any payments owed by AbbVie, if any, under this Agreement.

7.11Accounting Procedures. For purposes of determining Development Costs and Allowable Expenses, any expense allocated by either Party to a particular expense category of Development Costs or Allowable Expenses shall not also be allocated to another category under Development Costs or Allowable Expenses.  Each Party shall determine Development Costs and Allowable Expenses using its standard accounting procedures, consistently applied, to the maximum extent practicable as if the CD71 PDC or Licensed Product were a solely-owned product of the Party (provided that the application of such procedures results, in outcomes that are fair and equitable to both Parties taking into consideration the interests of both Parties as reflected in this Agreement) and in each case comply with the Accounting Standards.  Each Party shall have the right to audit the other Party’s records to confirm the accuracy of the other Party’s costs and reports as provided in Section 7.16.  Transfers between a Party and its Affiliates (or between such Affiliates) shall not have any effect for purposes of calculating Development Costs, Allowable Expenses, or other payments or expenses under this Agreement.  

7.12Withholding Taxes.   Where any sum due to be paid to either Party hereunder is subject to any withholding or similar tax, the Parties shall use their commercially reasonable efforts to do all such acts and things and to sign all such documents as will enable them to take advantage of any applicable double taxation agreement or treaty.  In the event there is no applicable double taxation agreement or treaty, or if an applicable double taxation agreement or treaty reduces but does not eliminate such withholding or similar tax, the payor shall remit such withholding or similar tax to the appropriate government authority, deduct the amount paid from the amount due to payee and secure and send to payee the best available evidence of such withholding or similar tax.  If withholding or similar taxes are paid to a government authority, each Party will provide the other such assistance as is reasonably required to obtain a refund of the withheld or similar taxes, or obtain a credit with respect to such taxes paid. In the event that a government authority retroactively determines that a payment made by a Party to the other pursuant to this Agreement should have been subject to withholding or similar (or to additional withholding or similar) taxes, and such Party (the “Withholding Party”) remits such withholding or similar taxes to the government authority, the Withholding Party will have the right (a) to offset such amount, including any interest and penalties that may be imposed thereon (except to the extent any such interest or penalties result from the negligence of the Withholding Party), against future payment obligations of the Withholding Party under this

- 62 -

DB1/ 86201718.40


Agreement, (b) to invoice the other Party for such amount (which shall be payable by the other Party within [***] of its receipt of such invoice) or (c) to pursue reimbursement by any other available remedy.

7.13Indirect Taxes.  All payments are exclusive of value added taxes, sales taxes, consumption taxes and other similar taxes (the “Indirect Taxes”).  If any Indirect Taxes are chargeable in respect of any payments, the paying Party shall pay such Indirect Taxes at the applicable rate in respect of such payments following receipt, where applicable, of an Indirect Taxes invoice in the appropriate form issued by the receiving Party in respect of those payments. The Parties shall issue invoices for all amounts payable under this Agreement consistent with Indirect Tax requirements and irrespective of whether the sums may be netted for settlement purposes.  If the Indirect Taxes originally paid or otherwise borne by the paying Party are in whole or in part subsequently determined not to have been chargeable, all necessary steps will be taken by the receiving Party to receive a refund of these undue Indirect Taxes from the applicable governmental authority or other fiscal authority and any amount of undue Indirect Taxes repaid by such authority to the receiving Party will be transferred to the paying Party within [***] of receipt.    In the event that a government authority retroactively determines that a payment made by the paying Party to the receiving Party pursuant to this Agreement should have been subject to Indirect Taxes, and the receiving Party is required to remit such Indirect Taxes to the government authority, the receiving Party will have the right (a) to invoice the paying Party for such amount (which shall be payable by the paying Party within [***] of its receipt of such invoice) or (b) to pursue reimbursement by any other available remedy.

7.14Interest on Late Payments.  If any payment due to either Party under this Agreement is not paid when due, then such paying Party shall pay interest thereon (before and after any judgment) at an annual rate (but with interest accruing on a daily basis) of [***], such interest to run from the date on which payment of such sum became due until payment thereof in full together with such interest.

7.15Financial Records.  Each Party shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, keep complete and accurate books and records pertaining to Development Costs, Net Sales of Licensed Products and Net Profits and Net Losses with respect to the Co-Development Products (including Allowable Expenses), as applicable, and Development of the CD71 PDCs or Licensed Products, including books and records of actual expenditures with respect to the budgets set forth in each Plan, in sufficient detail to calculate all amounts payable hereunder and to verify compliance with its obligations under this Agreement.  Such books and records shall be retained by such Party and its Affiliates until the later of (a) [***] after the end of the period to which such books and records pertain, and (b) the expiration of the applicable tax statute of limitations (or any extensions thereof), or for such longer period as may be required by Applicable Law.

7.16Audit.  At the request of the other Party, each Party shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, permit an independent public accounting firm of nationally recognized standing designated by the other Party and reasonably acceptable to the audited Party, at reasonable times during normal business hours and upon reasonable notice, to audit the books and records maintained pursuant to Section 7.15 to ensure the accuracy of all reports and payments made hereunder.  Such examinations may not (a) be conducted for any Calendar Quarter more than [***] after the end of such quarter, (b) be conducted more than once in any [***] period (unless

- 63 -

10.1Product Information.  Licensor recognizes that by reason of, inter alia, AbbVie’s status as an exclusive licensee pursuant to the grants under Section 5.1, AbbVie has an interest in Licensor’s maintaining the confidentiality of certain information of Licensor.  Accordingly, during the Term, Licensor shall, and shall cause its Affiliates and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents to, keep completely confidential, and not publish or otherwise disclose, and not use directly or indirectly for any purpose other than to fulfill Licensor’s obligations hereunder any Information owned or Controlled by Licensor or any of its Affiliates solely relating to any CD71 PDC or Licensed Product, or the Exploitation of any of the foregoing (the “Product Information”); except to the extent (a) the Product Information is in the public domain through no fault of Licensor, its Affiliates or any of its or their respective officers, directors, employees, or agents; (b) such disclosure or use is expressly permitted under Section 10.3, (c) such disclosure or use is otherwise expressly permitted by the terms of this Agreement, or (d) such disclosure or use is reasonably necessary for Licensor to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under this Agreement and is subject to confidentiality and non-use provisions consistent with those contained in this Agreement.  For purposes of clarity, Licensor may use general learnings that are broadly applicable to the Licensor Platform for its products, including Probodies, other than CD71 Probodies and CD71 PDCs to the extent reasonably necessary to Develop, Manufacture or Exploit such products, and, in connection with such activities may disclose such general learnings to outside consultants, contractors, advisory boards, managed care organizations, and non-clinical and clinical investigators, under reasonable

- 79 -

DB1/ 86201718.40


obligations of confidentiality; provided that such general learnings expressly exclude Product Information, any results or data generated in connection with Development Activities and the Confidential Information of AbbVie.  For purposes of Section 10.3, AbbVie shall be deemed to be the disclosing Party with respect to Product Information under Section 10.3 and Licensor shall be deemed to be the receiving Party with respect thereto.  For further clarification, (i) without limiting this Section 10.1, to the extent Product Information is disclosed by Licensor to AbbVie pursuant to this Agreement, such information shall, subject to the other terms and conditions of this ARTICLE 10, also constitute Confidential Information of Licensor with respect to the use and disclosure of such Information by AbbVie, but (ii) the disclosure by Licensor to AbbVie of Product Information shall not cause such information to cease to be subject to the provisions of this Section 10.1 with respect to the use and disclosure of such Confidential Information by Licensor. In the event this Agreement is terminated in its entirety or with respect to the Terminated Territory, this Section 10.1 shall have no continuing force or effect with respect to the use or disclosure of such information solely in connection with the Exploitation of the CD71 PDC or Licensed Product for the benefit of the Terminated Territory, but the Product Information, to the extent Controlled and disclosed by AbbVie to Licensor hereunder, shall continue to be Confidential Information of AbbVie, subject to the terms of Sections 10.2, 10.3, and 10.8 for purposes of the surviving provisions of this Agreement.

[***].

12.2Indemnification of AbbVie.   Licensor shall indemnify AbbVie, its Affiliates and its and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents (the “AbbVie Indemnitees”), and defend and save each of them harmless, from and against any and all Losses in connection with any and all Third Party Claims incurred by or rendered against the AbbVie Indemnitees arising from or occurring as a result of:

[***].

12.3Certain Losses.   Any Losses, other than those Losses covered in ARTICLE 8 or for which indemnification is provided in Section 12.1 or Section 12.2, in connection with any Third Party Claim brought against either Party resulting directly or indirectly from (a) the performance of Co-Development Activities by either Party (or its Affiliates, employees, or agents) in accordance with a Plan shall be included as a Development Cost or (b) the Commercialization of any Co-Development Product, or the Manufacture of any Co-Development Product for use in Commercialization activities, shall be included as an Allowable Expense.  If either Party learns of any Third Party Claim with respect to Losses covered by this Section 12.3, such Party shall provide the other Party with prompt written notice thereof.  The Parties shall confer with respect to how to respond to such Third Party Claim and how to handle such Third Party Claim in an efficient manner.  In the absence of such an agreement, each Party shall have the right to take such action as it deems appropriate.

12.4Notice of Claim. All indemnification claims in respect of a Party, its Affiliates, or their respective directors, officers, employees and agents shall be made solely by such Party to this Agreement (the “Indemnified Party”).  The Indemnified Party shall give the indemnifying Party prompt written notice (an “Indemnification Claim Notice”) of any Losses or discovery of fact upon which such Indemnified Party intends to base a request for indemnification under this ARTICLE 12, but in no event shall the indemnifying Party be liable for any Losses that result from any delay in providing such notice.  Each Indemnification Claim Notice must contain a description of the claim and the nature and amount of such Loss (to the extent that the nature and amount of such Loss is known at such time).  The Indemnified Party shall furnish promptly to the indemnifying Party copies of all papers and official documents received in respect of any Losses and Third Party Claims.  

12.5Control of Defense.

- 91 -

DB1/ 86201718.40


12.5.1In General.  Subject to the provisions of Sections 8.4, 8.5 and 8.7, at its option, the indemnifying Party may assume the defense of any Third Party Claim by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party within [***] after the indemnifying Party’s receipt of an Indemnification Claim Notice.  The assumption of the defense of a Third Party Claim by the indemnifying Party shall not be construed as an acknowledgment that the indemnifying Party is liable to indemnify the Indemnified Party in respect of the Third Party Claim, nor shall it constitute a waiver by the indemnifying Party of any defenses it may assert against the Indemnified Party’s claim for indemnification.  Upon assuming the defense of a Third Party Claim, the indemnifying Party may appoint as lead counsel in the defense of the Third Party Claim any legal counsel selected by the indemnifying Party which shall be reasonably acceptable to the Indemnified Party.  In the event the indemnifying Party assumes the defense of a Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall immediately deliver to the indemnifying Party all original notices and documents (including court papers) received by the Indemnified Party in connection with the Third Party Claim.  Should the indemnifying Party assume the defense of a Third Party Claim, except as provided in Section 12.5.2, the indemnifying Party shall not be liable to the Indemnified Party for any legal expenses subsequently incurred by such Indemnified Party in connection with the analysis, defense or settlement of the Third Party Claim unless specifically requested in writing by the indemnifying Party.  In the event that it is ultimately determined that the indemnifying Party is not obligated to indemnify, defend or hold harmless the Indemnified Party from and against the Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall reimburse the indemnifying Party for any Losses incurred by the indemnifying Party in its defense of the Third Party Claim.

12.5.2Right to Participate in Defense.  Without limiting Section 12.5.1, any Indemnified Party shall be entitled to participate in, but not control, the defense of such Third Party Claim and to employ counsel of its choice for such purpose; provided, that such employment shall be at the Indemnified Party’s own expense unless (a) the employment thereof, and the assumption by the indemnifying Party of such expense, has been specifically authorized by the indemnifying Party in writing, (b) the indemnifying Party has failed to assume the defense and employ counsel in accordance with Section 12.5.1 (in which case the Indemnified Party shall control the defense), or (c) the interests of the Indemnified Party and the indemnifying Party with respect to such Third Party Claim are sufficiently adverse to prohibit the representation by the same counsel of both Parties under Applicable Law, ethical rules or equitable principles.  

12.5.3Settlement.  With respect to any Losses relating solely to the payment of money damages in connection with a Third Party Claim and that shall not result in the Indemnified Party’s becoming subject to injunctive or other relief, and as to which the indemnifying Party shall have acknowledged in writing the obligation to indemnify the Indemnified Party hereunder, the indemnifying Party shall have the sole right to consent to the entry of any judgment, enter into any settlement or otherwise dispose of such Loss, on such terms as the indemnifying Party, in its sole discretion, shall deem appropriate.  With respect to all other Losses in connection with Third Party Claims, where the indemnifying Party has assumed the defense of the Third Party Claim in accordance with Section 12.5.1, the indemnifying Party shall have authority to consent to the entry of any judgment, enter into any settlement or otherwise dispose of such Loss.  If the indemnifying Party does not assume and conduct the defense of a Third Party Claim as provided above, the Indemnified Party may defend

- 92 -

DB1/ 86201718.40


against such Third Party Claim.  Regardless of whether the indemnifying Party chooses to defend or prosecute any Third Party Claim, no Indemnified Party shall admit any liability with respect to, or settle, compromise or dispose of, any Third Party Claim without the prior written consent of the indemnifying Party.  The indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement, compromise or other disposition of a Loss by an Indemnified Party that is reached without the written consent of the indemnifying Party.

12.5.4Cooperation.  Regardless of whether the indemnifying Party chooses to defend or prosecute any Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall, and shall cause each indemnitee to, cooperate in the defense or prosecution thereof and shall furnish such records, information and testimony, provide such witnesses and attend such conferences, discovery proceedings, hearings, trials and appeals as may be reasonably requested in connection therewith.  Such cooperation shall include access during normal business hours afforded to the indemnifying Party to, and reasonable retention by the Indemnified Party of, records and information that are reasonably relevant to such Third Party Claim, and making Indemnified Parties and other employees and agents available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information and explanation of any material provided hereunder, and the indemnifying Party shall reimburse the Indemnified Party for all its reasonable out-of-pocket expenses in connection therewith.

12.5.5Expenses.  Except as provided above, the reasonable and verifiable costs and expenses, including fees and disbursements of counsel, incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with any Third Party Claim shall be reimbursed on a Calendar Quarter basis in arrears by the indemnifying Party, without prejudice to the indemnifying Party’s right to contest the Indemnified Party’s right to indemnification and subject to refund in the event the indemnifying Party is ultimately held not to be obligated to indemnify the Indemnified Party.

12.6Special, Indirect, and Other Losses.  EXCEPT (A) FOR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT, (B) FOR A PARTY’S BREACH OF ITS OBLIGATIONS UNDER ARTICLE 10 OR SECTION 5.8 OR SECTION 5.10 (C) AS PROVIDED UNDER SECTION 14.7.7, AND (D) TO THE EXTENT ANY SUCH DAMAGES ARE REQUIRED TO BE PAID TO A THIRD PARTY AS PART OF A CLAIM FOR WHICH A PARTY PROVIDES INDEMNIFICATION UNDER THIS ARTICLE 12, NEITHER PARTY NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES SHALL BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, BREACH OF STATUTORY DUTY OR OTHERWISE IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THE USE OF THE CD71 PDC OR LICENSED PRODUCT, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.

- 93 -

DB1/ 86201718.40


writing by the other Party, and (c) shall require thirty (30) days’ written notice to be given to the other Party prior to any cancellation, non-renewal or material change thereof.

13.2Termination for Material Breach.  

13.2.1Material Breach.  If either Party (the “Non-Breaching Party”) believes that the other Party (the “Breaching Party”) has materially breached one (1) or more of its material obligations under this Agreement, then the Non-Breaching Party may deliver notice of such material breach to the Breaching Party (a “Default Notice”).  If the Breaching Party does not dispute that it has committed a material breach of one (1) or more of its material obligations under this Agreement, then if the Breaching Party fails to cure such breach, or fails to take steps as would be considered reasonable to effectively cure such breach, within [***] after receipt of the Default Notice, or if such compliance cannot be fully achieved within such [***] period and the Breaching Party has failed to commence compliance or has failed to use diligent efforts to achieve full compliance as soon thereafter as is reasonably possible, the Non-Breaching Party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the Breaching Party.  If the Breaching Party disputes that it has materially breached one (1) of its material obligations under this Agreement, the dispute shall be resolved pursuant to Section 14.7.1.  If, as a result of the application of such dispute resolution procedures under Section 14.7.1, the Breaching Party is determined to be in material breach of one (1) or more of its material obligations under this Agreement (an “Adverse Ruling”), then if the Breaching Party fails to complete the actions specified by the Adverse Ruling to cure such material breach within [***] after such ruling, or if such compliance cannot be fully achieved within such [***] period and the Breaching Party has failed to commence compliance or has failed to use diligent efforts to achieve full compliance as soon thereafter as is reasonably possible, then the Non-Breaching Party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the Breaching Party.

DB1/ 86201718.40
