Upon such termination, Vendor shall sell or transfer all of the Vendor Provided Equipment ordered by Vendor for construction of the Cell Site together with any Work completed (in accordance with applicable Specifications and requirements) in connection with the Cell Site through the date of termination to AT&T at a purchase price equal to Vendor’s reasonable and demonstrated costs for such Work (including its documented procurement costs for such Vendor Provided Equipment without any margin or mark-up by Vendor); provided, however, that in no event shall AT&T be required to pay in excess of $[***] for any such Vendor Provided Equipment and Work completed by Vendor prior to the date of termination. In addition to the foregoing, at AT&T’s sole election upon such termination, either (i) Vendor shall assign the tower lease for such Cell Site to AT&T in the case of any Third Party Cell Site or require Vendor to enter into a Site License with AT&T pursuant to the Master License Agreement in the case of any Vendor Cell Site and assign to AT&T any subcontract entered into by Vendor to provide any portion of the backhaul at such Cell Site pursuant to the Transport Agreement or (ii) AT&T shall reimburse Vendor for all of Vendor’s reasonable and demonstrated costs, if any, up to an aggregate amount equal to $ [***] per Cell Site, to terminate (A) in the case of a Third Party Cell Site, the Tower Lease entered into by Vendor in accordance with the terms of this Agreement but only to the extent that such Tower Lease is solely for the location of the AT&T Provided Equipment, Vendor Provided Equipment and other Material contemplated herein, and (B) any subcontract entered into by Vendor to provide any portion of the backhaul at such Cell Site pursuant to the Transport Agreement. To the extent that AT&T elects to assume the Tower Lease or transport contract and/or enter into a Site License with respect to a Cell Site, then upon completion of such Cell Site, AT&T may elect to include such Cell Site in the Maintenance Addendum and the Agreement and Maintenance Addendum shall not terminate with respect to such Cell Site. To the extent AT&T elects to reimburse Vendor for the costs described in subsection (ii) of the preceding sentence, then AT&T shall pay such amounts within sixty (60) days of receipt of an invoice from Vendor for such costs and expenses. In the event that either Party exercises the termination right set forth in this Section 17(b), the Parties agree that Location Acceptance shall not occur with respect to such Cell Site and AT&T shall have no obligation to make the Structured Payments for such Cell Site.”
