PRICE AND QUANTITY TERMS
A. RESELLER shall pay CASI for each License Agreement entered into, a fee
equal to the suggested retail price set forth on CASI's then most current IWPS
Configuration Pricing Schedule, minus the discount set forth immediately below
in Section B. CASI reserves the right to change the suggested retail price of
the IWPS CONFIGURATOR, upon sixty (60) days' prior written notice to RESELLER,
provided that CASI hereby offers the IWPS CONFIGURATOR for sale to RESELLER on
terms, including price, no worse than it offers such item to any of its other
customers, licensees or distributors; and provided further, that any such price
increase shall not, in the aggregate over the term of this Agreement, exceed
125% of the lower of (i) its suggested retail price as of the date of this
Agreement, or (ii) the price that is no worse than offered to its other
customers, licensees or distributors.
B. Discounts. Discounts for the IWPS CONFIGURATOR will be set on a
projected annual commitment basis for sales of the Product and shall be
evaluated quarterly for performance; that is, the IWPS CONFIGURATOR discount for
each quarter will be set based on the RESELLER's ability to successfully achieve
at least 25% of its annual commitment each quarter based on the quantity of IWPS
CONFIGURATOR products sold in the prior quarter. Notwithstanding whether
RESELLER achieves its quarterly commitment, the following quantity discount
schedule shall apply; provided that, at the end of each annual period a
reconciliation shall be done so that if RESELLER exceeds its Annual Commitment,
it shall receive a payment equal to the difference between the higher discount
percentage applicable, times the amount of all sales made, minus the discount,
times all sales made, already taken.

and discounts shall continue to apply to each successive period.
