employees from and against any and all damages, costs, liabilities, expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and expenses and court costs) and settlement amounts (collectively, “Liabilities”), incurred by GCT in connection with
any claim, suit, action or proceeding (collectively, “Claims”) by a third party against GCT arising out of (a) any breach by DISTRIBUTOR of this Agreement, (b) any failure by DISTRIBUTOR to pay required taxes, or (c) except
for claims for which GCT is obligated to indemnify DISTRIBUTOR pursuant to Article 15.2 below, any other claims arising out of DISTRIBUTOR’s resale of Products.
GCT. Subject to Article 16.3 below, GCT shall defend DISTRIBUTOR and its officers, directors and employees from and against any third party
claim or action to the extent such claim or action in based on a third party claim that use of the Products in compliance with any applicable specifications provided by GCT infringes such third party’s United States patent, copyright,
trademark, or misappropriates such third party’s trade secret, and GCT will pay those damages and costs finally awarded against DISTRIBUTOR in any monetary settlement of such suit or action which are specifically attributable to such claim. The
foregoing obligation of GCT does not apply with respect to Product or portions or components thereof (a) that are not supplied by GCT, (b) that are used in violation of this Agreement or in a manner not provided for or described in
documentation accompanying the Products, or used in combination with any other software, hardware, network or system, (c) that are modified after shipment by GCT, if the alleged infringement relates to such modification, (d) that are
combined with other products, processes or materials where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (e) with respect to which DISTRIBUTOR continues allegedly infringing
activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (f) where DISTRIBUTOR’s use of the Product is
incident to an infringement not resulting primarily from the Products. If any Product or any portion of a Product becomes, or in GCT’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement, then GCT may, at its option and expense,
(i) procure for DISTRIBUTOR the right to continue using the Product or portion of a Product, as the case may be, or (ii) replace or modify the affected Product or portion of a Product, as the case may be, so that it becomes non-infringing.
If neither alternative is reasonably available, GCT may terminate this Agreement. THE FOREGOING STATES GCT’S ENTIRE LIABILITY FOR INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS.

proceeding shall be conditioned upon the indemnified party: (a) providing the indemnifying party with prompt written notice of such claim, action or proceeding, (b) permitting the indemnifying party to assume and solely control the defense
of such claim, action or proceeding and all related settlement negotiations, with counsel chosen by the indemnifying party, and (c) cooperating at the indemnifying party’s request and expense with the defense or settlement of such claim,
action or proceeding which cooperation shall include providing reasonable assistance and information. No indemnified party shall enter into any settlement agreement for which it will seek indemnification under this Agreement from the indemnifying
party without the prior written consent of the indemnifying party. Nothing herein shall restrict the right of a party to participate in a claim, action or proceeding through its own counsel and at its own expense.
Article 16. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Limitation of Liability. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE IN THIS AGREEMENT OR OTHERWISE, GCT WILL NOT BE LIABLE WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT
MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR (A) ANY AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF THE LESSER OF (i) THE AGGREGATE OF THE AMOUNTS PAID TO GCT HEREUNDER DURING THE SIX MONTH PERIOD
PRIOR TO THE DATE THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE, OR (ii) $50,000, (B) INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES ARE FORESEEABLE OR GCT HAS BEEN ADVISED OR HAS CONSTRUCTIVE KNOWLEDGE OF
THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES), ARISING FROM GCT’S PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE PURSUANT TO ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE USE OF THE PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SUCH DAMAGES INCURRED BY THIRD PARTIES) SUCH AS, BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
REVENUE OR ANTICIPATED PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR LOSS OF USE, (C) COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, OR (D) LOSS OR CORRUPTION OF DATA OR INTERRUPTION OF USE OR BUSINESS. GCT SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY FAILURE
OR DELAY DUE TO MATTERS BEYOND ITS REASONABLE CONTROL. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THIS ARTICLE 16.1 SHALL NOT LIMIT
LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES THAT ARE THE SUBJECT OF INDEMNIFICATION PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 15 ABOVE.

DISTRIBUTOR agrees that GCT’s entire liability arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall be limited to indemnifying and holding DISTRIBUTOR harmless from (a) any loss or damage to real property, or (b) any loss or
damage arising from bodily injury, including death, when such loss or damage is caused by the grossly negligent acts or omissions or intentional wrongdoing of GCT’s employees or agents arising out of the performance of this Agreement, provided
