Forecasts shall be given in writing or, if given orally, shall be confirmed in writing within [***] Business Days.
Forecasts provided under this clause 3 shall not constitute Orders. Other than as set forth in clause 3.1, Forecasts provided hereunder shall not be binding but shall be Biodesixs good faith best estimate of its anticipated requirements.
Not less than [***] days before the beginning of each calendar month during the Term, Biodesix shall send Oncimmune its Purchase Order for that calendar month, which Purchase Order shall take into account the binding element of the Forecast.
Oncimmune shall use diligent efforts to supply the Product in accordance with Biodesixs Purchase Orders, except that, to the extent that a Purchase Order exceeds the most recent Forecast provided to Oncimmune in accordance with clause 3.1, Oncimmune shall only be obliged to use its Commercially Reasonable Efforts to supply any Product ordered in excess of such Forecast (and shall not be under any obligation to supply the Product ordered in excess of Forecasts if Biodesixs demand exceeds Oncimmunes production capacity). If Oncimmune anticipates at any time that it will not be able to fulfill for any reason any Purchase Order for the Product in full, then Oncimmune agrees to notify Biodesix of that fact and of the quantities it expects to deliver as soon as practicable.
Each Purchase Order shall:
be given in writing or, if given orally, shall be confirmed in writing within [***] Business Days;
state a unique Purchase Order number
specify quantity, description and manufacturers part number of Product ordered; and
be delivered at Oncimmunes contracted manufacturer, Fortress Diagnostics, Unit 2C, Antrim Technology Park, Antrim, Co. Antrim, BT41 1QS.
assign an Order Number to each Purchase Order received from Biodesix;
notify Biodesix within [***] Business Days of its acceptance of such Purchase Order (if accepted, or otherwise of rejection of such Purchase Order, and the reason for such rejection)

MANUFACTURE, QUALITY AND PACKING
Oncimmune shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to ensure its contracted manufacturer maintains sufficient manufacturing capacity, stocks of raw materials and packaging, to enable it to meet Biodesixs Forecasts.
Oncimmune shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to ensure its contracted manufacturer manufactures, packs and supplies the Product in accordance with all applicable laws and written specifications for the Product.
The Products supplied to Biodesix by Oncimmune under this Agreement shall:
conform to their respective written specifications;
be free from defects in design, material and workmanship; and
be submitted for delivery with a shelf life of no less than [***] months.
Oncimmune shall obtain and maintain in force for the Term all licences, permissions, authorisations, consents and permits needed to manufacture and supply the Product in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and Biodesix shall obtain and maintain in force for the Term all licences, permissions, authorisations, consents and permits needed to accept, import, store and sell the Product in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the PCA and as necessary to perform the Test and operate the Business (in each case, as defined in the APA).
Subject to the terms of the PCA, the Parties hereby agree and acknowledge that in the event of a Supply Failure, the applicable minimum sales commitments set forth in Sections 5.3 and 5.4 of the PCA shall be suspended and upon resolution of the Supply Failure, both
|Parties will reassess future sales prospects in good faith based on an assessment of the commercial impact of the Supply Failure and shall in good faith adjust the minimum sales commitments for the relevant period, taking into account the nature and extent of the Supply Failure.|
In the event that Supplier delivers greater than [***] of the Product that is the subject of Purchase Orders over an applicable [***]-month period within [***] days of the expected Delivery Date but fails to deliver [***] of such Product, and the failure by Supplier to deliver [***] of the Product as described directly causes Biodesix to fail to meet the applicable minimum sales commitments set forth in Sections 5.3 and 5.4 of the PCA, then the parties will discuss in good faith an adjustment to the minimum sales commitments. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that the circumstances described in this clause 5.6 occur, Sections 5.3 and 5.4 of the PCA shall not be suspended and will remain in full force and effect.
Oncimmune shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to deliver the Product within [***] days of the Delivery Date, and Biodesix shall accept delivery of all ordered Product delivered within such period.
Each delivery of Product shall be accompanied by a line item delivery note from Oncimmune showing the Order Number, Purchase Order Number, Product lot number(s), Product expiration date(s), the date of the Order and the description, quantity and manufacturers part number of Products included in the Order.
If Oncimmune requires Biodesix to return any packaging materials to Oncimmune, that fact must be clearly stated on the delivery note accompanying the relevant Order, and any such returns shall be at Oncimmunes expense.
If any batch of Products delivered to Biodesix is not in conformity with the terms of this Agreement, including the terms of clause 5.2, then, without limiting any other right or remedy that Biodesix may have, Biodesix may reject such batch within [***] Business Days of delivery (in the case of defects that are not latent defects) or [***] Business Days of discovery of the defect in the case of latent defects and require Oncimmune to replace the rejected batch at Oncimmunes risk and expense within a reasonable time of being requested to do so. The terms of this Agreement shall apply to any such replacement Products supplied by Oncimmune.
TITLE AND RISK
Product shipped under this Agreement will be FCA Incoterms 2010 Sellers (or its applicable manufacturers) facility, Unit 2C, Antrim Technology Park, Antrim, Co. Antrim, BT41 1QS Northern Ireland (or such other address as Oncimmune may notify Biodesix of in writing from time to time).
Notwithstanding any other agreement between Oncimmune and Biodesix concerning transfer of title or responsibility for risk of loss, title to Product shipped under any this Agreement passes to Biodesix as set forth in clause 8.1.
Oncimmune shall provide Product to Biodesix for an initial price of [***] per Test, as such price may be updated from time to time in accordance with clause 9.2 (the Price).

Oncimmune will notify Biodesix in writing of any updated Price no less than [***] days in advance of such increased Price taking effect.

If Biodesix disputes any invoice or other statement of monies due, Biodesix shall promptly notify Oncimmune in writing. The parties shall negotiate in good faith to attempt to resolve the dispute promptly. Oncimmune shall provide all such evidence as may be reasonably necessary to verify the disputed invoice or request for payment. If the parties have not resolved the dispute within [***] days of Biodesix giving notice to Oncimmune, the dispute shall be resolved in accordance with clause 21. Where only part of an invoice is disputed, the undisputed amount shall be paid on the due date as set out in clause 10.2. Oncimmunes obligations to supply the Products shall not be affected by any good faith payment dispute.
No party may set off any amounts owed to it by the other party under this Agreement against any amounts payable by it to the other party under this Agreement (or otherwise).

This clause 10.6 is without prejudice to any right to claim for interest under law or under this Agreement.
In performing its obligations under the Agreement, each party shall comply with all applicable laws, statutes and regulations from time to time in force.

Claims under clauses 12.1 and 12.2 shall be administered as provided for claims for indemnification under the provisions of Section 9.3 of the APA.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, neither party is obligated to indemnify or defend any indemnified party against any Claim (whether direct or indirect) if such Claim or corresponding Losses directly result from such partys or its Personnels gross negligence or more culpable act or omission (including wilful misconduct) or bad faith failure to materially comply with any of its obligations set forth in this Agreement.
If a payment due from either party under this clause is subject to tax (whether by way of direct assessment or withholding at its source), the indemnified party shall be entitled to receive from such party such amounts as shall ensure that the net receipt, after tax, to the indemnified party in respect of the payment is the same as it would have been were the payment not subject to tax. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this clause shall not apply to any income or corporation tax.
