NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing recitals and the mutual covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:




1.Agreement to Provide Services.


1.1.         Agreement. Upon the terms and subject to the conditions contained herein and in the Schedules attached hereto (each, as it may be amended from time to time, a “Schedule”), the Service Providers hereby agree to provide, or cause their affiliates to provide, to the Service Recipients the services (as set forth in Schedule A, the “Services”) listed in the Schedules. Each of the Services shall be provided and accepted in accordance with the terms, limitations and conditions set forth herein and in the Schedules.


1.2.         Scope of Services. The parties agree that upon the terms and subject to the conditions contained herein, additional or new services which are not currently contemplated in this Agreement may be added to the Schedules from time to time. Any new or additional services undertaken by the Service Providers to the Service Recipients shall be provided for a fee that includes the cost plus applicable operating margin (as may be determined from time to time) as more fully described in Section 2, and any such transactions shall be conducted on an arm’s-length basis.


1.3.         Review of Services. The parties agree that: (i) the scope, frequency and manner of delivery of the Services detailed herein are subject to periodic review by the parties; (ii) changes to any of the Services (including the addition or deletion of services) may be made at any time if agreed to by the parties; and (iii) this Agreement may be amended from time to time according to the terms set out in herein.


1.4.Right to Deliver and Request Instructions.


a.Each Service Recipient, acting through any of its authorized officers, may from time to time deliver to a Service Provider instructions with respect to matters arising under this Agreement, and the Service Provider shall follow such instructions provided they are consistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.


b.At any time, any Service Provider may, if it reasonably deems it necessary or appropriate, request instructions from a Service Recipient, within a reasonable period prior to the time necessary for taking action with respect to any matter contemplated by this Agreement, and may defer action thereon pending receipt of such instructions. Any action taken by a Service Provider, its officers, directors, employees, agents or representatives in accordance with the instructions of a Service Recipient, or failure to act by a Service Provider pending the receipt of such instructions after request therefor, shall be deemed to be proper conduct within the scope of service authority under this Agreement.





1.5.         Service Designees. Each Service Provider may perform the services to be provided hereunder through its own officers and employees, or through agents, independent contractors or other parties designated by it; provided, however, that each Service Provider will remain liable hereunder as if it has performed such services directly.


2.Cost Sharing.


2.1.         Each Service Recipient agrees to bear and to pay its share of the Net Costs as defined in Section 2.2 below and, as contemplated by this Agreement, make payment arrangements with the Service Provider on an arm’s length basis for all activities covered by this Agreement for each calendar month.


2.2.         The Parent or its designee shall compute the costs that it incurs in connection with providing Services under this Agreement (its “Net Costs”) in accordance with the following formula: Net Costs = Direct Costs + Indirect Costs


Direct Costs” means the sum of all external and all internal direct costs incurred by a Service Provider and directly attributable to a particular Service provided to a particular Service Recipient.


Indirect Costs” means all external and all internal indirect costs incurred by the Service Provider in providing the Services to the Service Recipients, which cannot be directly attributed to a particular Service provided to a particular Service Recipient, including but not limited to salaries and bonuses, wages for permanent and temporary employees, expatriate costs (where applicable), facilities charges (including office rent, depreciation, maintenance, utilities and supplies), travel costs, pension benefits, insurance benefits, depreciation of fixed assets and all expenses to third parties incurred in connection with the Services, excluding value added tax, withholding taxes and/or similar levies, which shall be paid by the respective Service Provider, if legally required.


3.             Reporting; Timing of Payments. Each Service Provider shall submit a statement to each applicable Service Recipient no later than twenty (20) calendar days after the end of each calendar [month/quarter/half] (unless otherwise agreed to by the parties), with respect to the amount of Net Costs payable by such Service Recipient for such month (a “Statement”). Such Statement shall set forth in reasonable detail: (i) the Direct Costs incurred in providing each Service to such Service Recipient and (ii) the Indirect Costs incurred in providing each Service to such Service Recipient. Unless any such Service Recipient disagrees as to the amounts payable as set forth in the Statement, all Statements shall be settled not later than forty-five (45) calendar days following receipt by the Service Recipient from the Service Provider of such Statement relating to the Services provided. In the event of any disagreement between the Service Providers and the Service Recipients with respect to any Statement or any amounts owed thereunder, the parties hereto agree to negotiate in good faith to resolve such dispute.


4.            Standards for Performance of Service. Each Service Provider shall perform its obligations hereunder in a prudent and efficient manner and in accordance with applicable law and good industry practice.


5.Access to Employees and Information.


5.1.         Access. At the request of any Service Recipient, each Service Provider shall, and shall cause its affiliates to, use its reasonable best efforts to provide for consultation with the Service Recipient, shortly after such request, its employees providing Services hereunder. At the request of any Service Recipient, each Service Provider shall, and shall cause its affiliates to, make available information relating to such Service Provider’s business.





5.2.         Inspection. Each Service Provider hereby agrees that, upon reasonable notice from any Service Recipient, it shall make its books and records with respect to Services and payment therefor available to the Service Recipient and its representatives for inspection during normal business hours at such Service Provider’s principal place of business.


6.            Force Majeure. No party shall be liable for any failure of performance attributable to acts, events or causes (including, but not limited to, war, riot, rebellion, civil disturbances, power failures, failure of telephone lines and equipment, flood, storm, fire and earthquake or other acts of God or conditions or events of nature, or any law, order, proclamation, regulation, ordinance, demand or requirement of any governmental authority) beyond its control that prevent in whole or in part performance by such party hereunder. The affected provisions and/or other requirements of this Agreement shall be suspended during the period of such disability and no Service Provider shall have any liability to any Service Recipient or any other party in connection therewith other than by reason of breach or nonfulfillment of its covenants in this Section 6. The Service Providers shall make all reasonable efforts to remove such disability as soon as and to the extent reasonably possible and to assist the Service Recipients in finding third parties to provide affected Services during the period of such disability.


7.             Indemnification. The Service Recipients shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Service Providers, their affiliates, their officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives from and against any and all losses, liabilities, claims, damages, actions, fines, penalties, expenses or costs (including court costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) (“Losses”) suffered or incurred by any such Person arising from or in connection with any Service Providers’ performance or non-performance of any covenant, agreement or obligation of the Service Provider hereunder, other than by reason of the Service Providers’ or any of their affiliates’ gross negligence, willful misconduct or bad faith.
