4.    Duties and Obligations of Parkdale.

(a)  Compliance with Standards. Parkdale shall supply Yarn in full compliance with the product specifications (the "Specifications") set forth in EXHIBIT A attached hereto. Any modifications to the Specifications may only be made by agreement in writing by both parties.

(b)  Delivery. Parkdale shall ship and regularly fulfill the weekly supply of Yarn (as set forth in purchase orders provided by Delta to Parkdale) to Delta or to such destination(s) as Delta shall designate in writing on an F.O.B. (Parkdale's facility) basis with carriers designated by Delta so that Delta shall assume all freight, transportation, and insurance from the time of delivery. If Parkdale determines that it will be unable to meet Delta's delivery requirements, as set forth in any purchase order provided by Delta to Parkdale, it shall so notify Delta no later than ten (10) days after receipt of Delta's order and propose an alternative delivery schedule. If such alternative delivery schedule is not acceptable to Delta, Delta shall have the right to reject the alternative delivery schedule by written notice to Parkdale and to utilize an alternative supply source with respect to such order. In addition, in the event that Parkdale fails to deliver Yarn on any required delivery date, Delta may utilize an alternative supply source with respect to such Yarn. Claims by Delta for inadequate delivery of Yarn shall be void unless Delta gives Parkdale written notice of the claim within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of the Yarn at the destination designated by Delta.

(c)  Records. All original records, in whatever form, relating to the manufacturing, production, quality control assurance, proof of origin records and shipment of Yarn shall be retained by Parkdale for a period of not less than two (2) years from the date of delivery of each lot of Yarn to which said records pertain.

(e)  Time of the Essense. Parkdale acknowledges that time is of the essence under this Agreement.

(f)   Location of Manufacturing Operations. Parkdale agrees that all Yarn delivered hereunder shall be manufactured by it in North Carolina, South Carolina, or Virginia, or at such other location as Delta may approve in writing.

5.    Warranty. Parkdale warrants that the Yarn delivered hereunder shall conform in all respects to the Specifications and shall be manufactured, produced and shipped in accordance with the Specifications and warrants that the Yarn shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship and that, at the time of delivery, Parkdale shall have good title and right to transfer and sell the same and that the same shall be delivered free of encumbrances. If Parkdale fails to deliver any Yarn hereunder free of encumbrances, Delta may reject such Yarn pursuant to SECTION 6 or Delta may, upon written notice to Parkdale, require that Parkdale, at its expense, defend the title thereto and promptly cause any security interest, claim, demand, lien, or other encumbrance to be removed. EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 5, PARKDALE MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES OF QUALITY, AND PARKDALE HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES OF QUALITY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHETHER CREATED BY CONTRACT OR BY OPERATION OF LAW, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

6.    Rejection of Yarn.

(a)  Delta may reject any Yarn that does not conform in any respect to the warranties provided by Parkdale in SECTION 5 of this Agreement provided that Delta gives notice to Parkdale of such rejection within thirty (30) days after Delta discovers the nonconformity.

(b)  Upon rejection of Yarn by Delta, Parkdale shall promptly replace the nonconforming Yarn with Yarn conforming to the warranties in SECTION 5 of this Agreement. Parkdale shall bear all costs in fulfilling its obligation to replace nonconforming Yarn, including all freight costs associated with return of nonconforming Yarn to Parkdale and all freights costs associated with the shipment of replacement Yarn to Delta.

7.    Purchase Price, Payment; Rebates. The purchase price for each pound of Yarn delivered by Parkdale pursuant to this Agreement shall be calculated in accordance with the formula set forth on EXHIBIT B attached hereto. Parkdale shall invoice Delta weekly for all Yarn delivered during the preceding week pursuant to Delta's purchase orders. Such invoices shall be payable by Delta on a net forty-five (45) day basis following actual receipt of the invoice. All payments shall be remitted to Parkdale at the address specified in or given pursuant to SECTION 18 hereof. Delta is solely responsible for, and will pay, any and all applicable sales, use, value added, or excise taxes, and any and all imposts, customs, duties or consular fees or charges related to importation or exportation of goods, imposed by any governmental authority in the Territory in connection with the sale of Yarn by Parkdale to Delta (collectively "Taxes"), excluding, however, any Taxes measured upon Parkdale's income. Each party agrees to take all actions reasonably required to obtain exemptions from or reductions of Taxes (other than income Taxes) required to be paid or withheld that may be applicable to any payment due hereunder. Parkdale agrees to pay to Delta all rebate amounts actually received by Parkdale under any rebate program(s) administered by the USDA for the benefit of cotton consumers to the extent such rebates are attributable to bales of cotton opened by Parkdale to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement. Such rebate payments shall be made by Parkdale within seven (7) days of the end of each month.

8.    Purchase Orders. All sales of Yarn produced for Delta in accordance with this Agreement will be made pursuant to purchase orders submitted by Delta from time to time, the terms of which shall be controlled by the terms of this Agreement, regardless of whether such purchase orders reference this Agreement. To the extent the terms of a purchase order conflict with the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control. Except as provided in SECTION 4(b) with respect to delivery schedules, each purchase order for Yarn submitted by Delta in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed automatically accepted by Parkdale, subject to the provisions of Section 4(b) with respect to delivery requirements.

9.    Limitation of Liability. Subject to compliance with the Specifications and without limiting SECTION 5, the determination of the suitability of the Yarn furnished hereunder for the uses contemplated by Delta is the sole responsibility of Delta and Parkdale shall have no responsibility in connection therewith. Except in the case of gross negligence or gross misconduct, Parkdale's sole liability and Delta's sole remedy for the non-delivery or delivery of inadequate quantities of Yarn, or for the delivery of Yarn not conforming to Specifications, shall be for Delta's direct damages, if such failure is not excused pursuant to SECTION 11 of this Agreement. Neither party shall, under any circumstances, be liable for loss of profits or any other indirect or consequential damages except in the case of gross negligence or gross misconduct.

10.   Confidentiality.

(a)  This Agreement, the terms herof, and all information furnished or to be furnished by Delta to Parkdale or by Parkdale to Delta in connection with and during the Term of this Agreement shall be kept confidential by the party receiving said information, except for purposes authorized by this Agreement, and neither party shall disclose such information to any person or firm unless previously authorized in writing by the other party to do so; provided, however, that the party receiving such information may disclose the same to its responsible officers and employees who require the information for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement, provided that such officers and employees are made aware of, and agree to be bound by, the provisions of this Section. Any other provision hereof to the contrary notwithstanding, it is expressly understood and agreed by the parties that each party's obligations of confidentiality and nondisclosure herein assumed shall not apply to any information which (i) such party can demonstrate was already lawfully in its possession prior to the disclosure thereof by the other party, (ii) became known to the public through no fault of such party, (iii) is later lawfully acquired by such party from other sources without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is required to be disclosed by applicable law or legal process. In the event that disclosure is required pursuant to legal process, (a) the receiving party shall provide the other party with prompt notice of such requirement so the other party may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy or waive compliance with the provisions of this Agreement; (b) in the event that a protective order or other remedy is obtained, the ·receiving party shall use all reasonable efforts to assure that all information disclosed shall be covered by such order or other remedy; and (c) whether or not such protective order or other remedy is obtained or the other party waives compliance with the provisions of this Agreement, the receiving party will disclose only that portion of the information which it is legally required to disclose.

(b)   The provisions of this SECTION 10 shall remain in force for a period of two (2) years following the termination of this Agreement, except with respect to any information that constitutes a trade secret, the protection of which shall be unlimited in duration.

(c)   The parties acknowledge that breach of this SECTION 10 by either party may cause damage to the other party which could not be adequately compensated by a monetary award. Accordingly, such other party shall be entitled, in addition to any other right or remedy available to it, to an injunction restraining such breach or any threatened breach and to specific performance of every provision of this SECTION 10 and, in any such case, no security shall be required to be posted in connection with such injunction.

11.   Force Majeure.

(a)   Neither party shall be liable to the other for damages resulting from any failure to perform its obligations hereunder if such failure is due to any of the following: strikes, lockouts, concerted acts of workmen or other industrial disturbances, fires, explosions, floods or other natural catastrophes, civil disturbance, riots or armed conflict whether declared or undeclared, curtailment, shortage, rationing or allocation of normal sources of supply of labor, materials, transportation, energy or utilities, accidents, acts of God, delays of subcontractors or vendors, sufferance of or voluntary compliance with acts of government and government regulations (whether valid or invalid), embargoes, or any other similar or dissimilar cause, any of which is beyond the reasonable control of the party affected and which makes performance commercially impracticable.

(b)   Neither party shall be required to make any concession or grant any demand or request to bring to an end any strike or other concerted act of workmen.

(c)   Either party affected by an event described in SECTION 11(a) shall promptly, upon learning of such event and ascertaining that it has affected or will affect that party's performance under this Agreement, give notice to the other party, stating the nature of the event, its anticipated duration and any action being taken to amend or minimize its effect, and such party will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize the effect of such event on the performance of its obligations under this Agreement.

(d)   If any event described in SECTION ll(a) partially reduces Parkdale's ability to produce or deliver Yarn, then Parkdale may prorate its available supply amongst Delta and Parkdale's other customers in a fair and equitable manner. If any event described in SECTION ll(a) partially or wholly reduces Parkdale's ability to produce or deliver Yarn, Delta shall be entitled to purchase Yarn from alternative sources of supply and, if such inability to produce or deliver Yarn persists in excess of sixty (60) days, Delta shall have the option to terminate this Agreement by written notice to Parkdale.

(e)   Notwithstanding this SECTION 11, Delta shall pay Parkdale for all Yarn shipped and received by Delta during the Term pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

12.   Termination. This Agreement may be earlier terminated as set forth below.

(a)   Either party by written notice may terminate this Agreement at any time if the other party materially defaults in carrying out its terms and does not cure such default within thirty (30) days of receipt of written notice thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Delta may terminate this Agreement forthwith upon notice to Parkdale, with no additional cure rights for Parkdale, if Parkdale fails for any reason whatsoever to deliver Yarn in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement on more than two (2) occasions in any one (1) calendar year.

(b)   Delta may terminate this Agreement forthwith upon notice to Parkdale if Andy Warlick is no longer actively involved in the operation of Parkdale.

(c)   Delta may terminate this Agreement forthwith upon written notice to Parkdale if (i) Parkdale disposes or attempts to dispose of all or any material portion of its business, whether by way of sale of assets or stock, or by way of merger, consolidation, joint venture or other arrangement, (ii) Parkdale ceases to function as a going concern, (iii) Parkdale ceases to conduct its operations in the ordinary course of business, (iv) a receiver for Parkdale is appointed, or (v) Parkdale otherwise takes advantage of any insolvency, bankruptcy, moratorium or similar laws or an involuntary proceeding under any such laws is initiated against Parkdale and such involuntary proceeding is not dismissed within ninety (90) days after it is initiated.

No termination of this Agreement shall prejudice any claim that arises prior to such termination or arises pursuant to deliveries of Yarn made pursuant to this Agreement.

13.   Authority; No Conflict. Each party represents and warrants to the others that (a) it has the power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to carry out its terms and (b) the performance of this Agreement is not restricted by, in violation of, or in conflict with, any applicable agreement, contract, or order to which it is a party.

If said senior management personnel are unable to resolve the Dispute within thirty (30) days following its referral to them, the Dispute shall be determined and adjudged by a panel of three arbitrators, unless the amount in controversy is less than $250,000, in which case a single arbitrator shall preside. The hearing shall be held in Charlotte, North Carolina. The selection of an arbitrator and the procedure shall be in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules then in effect of the American Arbitration Association.

The purchase price for each pound of Yarn delivered shall be calculated in accordance with the following formula: PURCHASE PRICE = [(A+ B) / C] + D

Where:            A =   Cost Price

B =   Basis, which for the purposes hereof for 2005 shall                           mean [*] points off

C =   [*] (representing a waste factor of [*]) for 100%                             cotton Yarn and [*](representing a waste factor of                            [*]) for 50/50 Yarn and Blends

D =   Conversion Price for each of the following respective                               counts of Yarn (the "Yarn Counts"):

Yarn Count:

Conversion Price Per Pound:



10/1 count (50/50)


14/1 count (50/50)


18/1 count (50/50)


17 counts (100%)


18/1 count (100%)


19 counts (100%)


20/1 count (50/50)


20/1 count (100%)


18/1 count heathers


17/1 count heathers


This EXHIBIT B shall be amended from time to time to add conversion prices per pound for Yarn Counts required by Delta or any of its Subsidiaries not set forth above, as agreed to by the parties in their reasonable discretion.


The Conversion Price per pound will be increased in 2007 by [*] per pound and by an additional [*] per pound in 2009. The Cost Price per pound shall be adjusted over the term of this Agreement on a quarterly basis and shall be calculated for any given quarter based on the weighted average of cotton prices fixed for that quarter pursuant to EXHIBIT C. The Basis per pound shall be adjusted over the term of this Agreement on an annual basis on each anniversary date of this Agreement.

Cotton Prices:

Parkdale shall purchase cotton at prices determined by Delta in accordance with EXHIBIT C attached hereto.

[*] Text omitted for confidential treatment. The redacted information has been excluded because it is both (i) not material and (ii) would be competitively harmful if publicly disclosed.

Inventory acquired Pursuant to Acquisition Agreement:

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, the purchase price for Yarn produced from raw materials and work-in-process purchased by Parkdale from Delta pursuant to the Acquisition Agreement shall be computed (i) in the case of raw materials, on the basis of the Stated Value of the Inventory (as such terms are defined in the Acquisition Agreement) in lieu of Cost Price and Basis, and (ii) in the case of any work-in-process other than cotton at uniflock, on the basis of the Stated Value of the Inventory in lieu of Cost Price and Basis, a waste factor of [*] for 100% cotton Yarn and [*] for 50/50 Yarn and Blends in lieu of the applicable waste factor, and fifty (50%) percent of the applicable conversion price in lieu of the applicable conversion price.

[*] Text omitted for confidential treatment. The redacted information has been excluded because it is both (i) not material and (ii) would be competitively harmful if publicly disclosed.



For each quarter during the term of this Agreement, Delta shall prior to the respective dates set forth below (i) deliver fixation orders to Parkdale in writing for cotton at a price per pound or a range of acceptable prices per pound for the applicable NY Futures Cover Month and in multiples of 100 bales or (ii) transfer to a brokerage account of Parkdale an equivalent number of NYBOT Cotton Futures. In the event that Delta fails to exercise its right to fix the price of cotton for any quarter prior to the respective date set forth below, Parkdale shall have the right to fix the cotton price for that quarter. If Delta fails to fix the price of cotton for any quarter in quantities that are sufficient for Parkdale to fulfill the purchase orders for Yarn issued by Delta for delivery during that quarter, the applicable Cost Price for such excess Yarn shall be equal to the cost fixed by Parkdale, if Parkdale manufactures such excess Yarn from cotton delivered to it pursuant to futures contracts, or Parkdale's cost to obtain cotton in the spot market, if Parkdale manufacturers such excess Yarn from cotton purchased by it in the spot market.



Prices to be fixed prior to:

NY Futures Cover Month:





November 30



February 28



May 31



August 30


In the event that the number of bales fixed for any quarter exceeds the actual cotton content of the Yarn delivered by Parkdale during such quarter, the excess cotton fixation will be rolled forward to the next quarter at the price for the current quarter and Delta shall reimburse Parkdale's carrying costs for the excess cotton fixation until such fixation is exhausted. Carrying costs are [*] per bale per month ([*] per pound) and shall accrue on the last day of the month (e.g. unused cotton on March 31st will be subject to carrying charges if still unused on April 30th). Accrued carrying costs shall be paid by Delta on a quarterly basis or upon demand by Parkdale.

All fixation orders and executions must be promptly confirmed in writing by any of the respective representatives listed below or otherwise designated by written notice in accordance with Section 18.
