2.ROFR; Appointment of Distributor.
(a) Mutual Right of First Refusal. Distributor shall have the right of first refusal during the Term (the “Distributor ROFR”) to serve as the distributor of the Products for any fuel cell generation project in the Territory that is not subject to an Exception to Distributor ROFR. The Parties will follow the framework set forth in the CCA for future SOEC distributorship rights for the Distributor. Company shall have the right of first refusal during the Term (the “Company ROFR”; and each of Distributor ROFR and Company ROFR, a “ROFR”) to serve as Distributor’s supplier of the generation equipment for any fuel cell generation project in the Territory that is not subject to an Exception to Company ROFR. Each ROFR is exercisable within ninety (90) days (“ROFR Exercise Period”) from the date that Company or Distributor, as applicable, delivers written notice to the counterparty, requesting such counterparty’s determination of whether it will exercise its ROFR for such project. When a Party requests the counterparty’s determination of whether it will exercise its ROFR for a project the Party requesting such determination shall continue to serve as the supplier or distributor (as applicable to Company or Distributor, respectively) for such project.
(b)A Party’s ROFR will automatically terminate, and the counterparty proposing such fuel cell generation project may determine whether to pursue such project, by itself or with third parties, without the involvement of Party holding such ROFR, if the Party holding such ROFR does not deliver written notice within the ROFR Exercise Period that it wishes to exercise its right to serve as supplier or distributor (as applicable to Company and Distributor, respectively), for such
8


project. The ROFR is not a right to require that Company or Distributor consummate any particular sales or service transaction for any particular Project. Company and Distributor may each, in its sole discretion and for any reason, determine whether to pursue or consummate any Project and enter into a Purchase Order. If a Party chooses not to pursue or consummate any transaction for which it has exercised the ROFR within the ROFR Exercise Period, such Party shall not thereafter pursue or consummate such Project by itself or with a third party. For the avoidance of doubt, a Party shall have no right with respect to any project for which it does not exercise its right to serve as supplier or distributor (as applicable to Company and Distributor, respectively) within the ROFR Exercise Period.
(c) Exceptions to Right of First Refusal.
(i)During the Initial Term of this Agreement:
(1)The following projects are exempt from Distributor’s ROFR (each, an “Exception to Distributor ROFR”):
a.[…***…];
b.[…***…];
c.[…***…]; and
d.[…***…].
(2)The following projects are exempt from Company’s ROFR (each, an “Exception to Company ROFR”):
a.[…***…].
(ii)[…***…].
(iii)[…***…].
(d) Material Breach. If either Party offers a project that is subject to the counterparty’s ROFR (and is not subject to an applicable Exception) herein without first sending a notice to the Party holding such ROFR in accordance with Section 2(a), it shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement, but such breach may be cured by revoking such offer to the third party within five (5) days of written notice thereof and thereafter proceeding in accordance with ROFR procedures set forth in Section 2(a).
(e) Commitment.
(i)Commitment. Distributor shall purchase, on a take or pay basis, the following volume of Energy Servers for each of the periods set forth below (with respect to each quarter of each calendar year, […***…]:

10


GenCo RFP, then the MW capacity of the transaction shall be applied to the annual target for such calendar year as though a Purchase Order had been executed; provided, however, that notwithstanding the foregoing, such MW capacity shall not be applied for such calendar year if the reason that Company chose not to exercise its ROFR or execute a Purchase Order arose from either (a) risks to protection of Company’s intellectual property; or (b) […***…].
(vi)Bookings Target. By no later than two (2) months prior to the end of each calendar year, Distributor shall provide the Company with a twelve (12) month non-binding bookings target of its anticipated requirements for Product in the Territory for the subsequent calendar year, which may be updated by Distributor from time to time during the course of such subsequent year (each, a “Bookings Target”).

3.Resale Terms and Conditions.
(a) Intellectual Property.
(i)Distributor shall comply with all intellectual property limitations set forth in Section 9.
(ii)Distributor shall make best efforts to ensure that the intellectual property provisions of the Customer Agreement (and, if applicable, related RFP bid materials) comply with the following requirements, and shall receive Company’s written consent prior to executing a Customer Agreement (which may occur as early as submission of RFP bid materials) which does not comply with such provisions: (a) Company shall have the exclusive right to conduct all monitoring, control, operations, and maintenance activities (“O&M”) for each Project during the life thereof; (b) Customer and all third parties shall otherwise comply with the Prohibited Activities; (c) Company shall have a right of re-purchase upon abandonment, or attempted sale or transfer of the Products or Project; and (d) pursuant to the terms and conditions of the LTSA, Company shall have a right of re-purchase upon termination of the LTSA for any reason.

Liquidated damages commonly referred to as “buy-down liquidated damages” and assessed prospectively for future performance of a Project based upon performance during commercial operation of such Project (e.g. one (1) year or two (2) years of commercial operation), do not form part of Company’s offer for any Project. If buy-down liquidated damages are required by the rules of procurement for any project (e.g. the rules of a request for proposals), then the Parties may, by mutual written agreement, decide in writing to pursue such Project upon terms and conditions with respect to such buy-down liquidated damages which are mutually acceptable to the Parties; provided, that neither Party shall be under any obligation to enter into any such agreement.
(v)Performance Bond. If a Customer Agreement requires Distributor to post a “performance bond” or equivalent financial security to secure performance of the Delivery of the Products and the passage of the Commissioning Test (a “Performance Bond”), the Parties shall set forth in the applicable Purchase Order the requirements of such financial security, and the Parties’ respective responsibility therefor; provided, that in no event shall Company’s responsibility for posting a Performance Bond exceed the lesser of (a) the pro-rata percentage of the contract price under such Customer Agreement attributable to the supply of the Products; and (b) one hundred percent (100%) of the Product Price of such Products as set forth in the Purchase Order therefor. The contractual liability of Company for failure to timely Deliver the Products or for the Products to pass the Commissioning Test, together with the draw conditions for a Performance Bond posted by
13


Company, shall be set forth in the Purchase Order. The Parties shall make best efforts to negotiate in the Customer Agreement to minimize exposure related to such liabilities.
(c) LTSA.
(i)LTSA Negotiation. Company shall be solely authorized and responsible for all marketing (including bid materials), negotiation, and execution of any LTSA for any Project that is, or is proposed to be, subject to a Customer Agreement. Distributor may not, without Company’s prior written consent, make any representation on Customer’s behalf with respect to any LTSA, including without limitation representation regarding pricing, performance commitments, or limitations of liability. Distributor shall have the opportunity to participate in LTSA negotiations with Company and Customer for any LTSA that is subject to the Distributor Excess Performance LD Commitment. Distributor shall not have liability pursuant to any LTSA, except as set forth in an Excess Performance LD Agreement.

The Pre-Commissioning Completion Warranty is not transferable to any third person, including a Customer, without Company’s prior written consent.
(ii)Warranty Correction. If Products fail to satisfy the Pre-Commissioning Completion Warranty during the Pre-Commissioning Completion Warranty Period, Distributor shall make a written warranty claim to Company and Company shall verify whether such warranty claim is valid. Company shall either repair or replace (as determined by Company) the applicable Products (a “Warranty Correction”) and re-perform the Commissioning Test within times acceptable to Customer; provided, that if Company has commenced and thereafter diligently pursued such Warranty Correction, but the nature of the specific remedy cannot be performed at the time requested by Customer, then such period shall conform to terms and conditions under the Purchase Order. Company may, as it deems necessary or appropriate, re-perform a Warranty Correction within such period (as may be extended pursuant to the foregoing sentence). Upon completion of the Warranty Correction, Company shall notify Distributor in writing, and Commissioning Test shall be re-performed. Breach of the Pre-Commissioning Completion Warranty shall not be extended to the Pre-Commissioning Completion Warranty Period after the achievement of Commissioning Completion.

The Pre-Commissioning Completion Warranty shall not cover any obligations on the part of Company to the extent caused by or arising from (a) the Products affected by loss, vandalism, or other third-party actions or omissions after Delivery; (b) any failure relating to failure of natural gas supply to conform to the required specifications; (c) removal of any safety device by any person other than Company, (d) accidents, abuse, improper third party testing,
