Enphase desires to engage the Supplier, and the Supplier agrees to perform manufacturing services, for good and valuable consideration as further set forth in this Agreement. The Parties agree as follows:
Supplier and Enphase agree that capitalized terms shall have the meanings set forth in this Agreement and Exhibit A attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
2. MANUFACTURING SERVICES
2.1. Work. Enphase hereby engages Supplier to perform the work (hereinafter "Work"). "Work" shall mean to procure Materials (as applicable) and to manufacture, assemble, and test products, which shall include, but not be limited to: (i) the Combiner Box 3.0; (ii) the Envoy S; and (iii) the IQ7 Microinverter) and any other products as required by Enphase (collectively, hereinafter "Product(s)") pursuant to detailed written Specifications for each category of Products. The "Specifications" for each category of Products (or revision thereof), shall include, but are not limited to bill of materials (“BOM”), designs, schematics, assembly drawings, process documentation, test specifications, packing specifications, current revision number, and Approved Vendor Lists, and shall be further detailed in Exhibit B. For the avoidance of doubt, the Work also includes the Supplier’s responsibility to procure (and/or install, as applicable) the Supplier Controlled Equipment as listed in Exhibit E. For the avoidance of doubt, the Supplier shall not deviate from the Specifications, the terms of this Agreement or any Exhibit hereto, unless required by an ECO (as defined herein) issued by Enphase. Enphase may, at its discretion, add new products to the scope of the Products and the Work under this Agreement (“NPI”). Should Enphase
choose to exercise this right, the Parties will discuss and mutually agree on the fees and other relevant terms applicable to such NPI. For the avoidance of doubt, the Supplier shall be responsible for translating any of the documents referred to in this Agreement (including the terms of this Agreement itself), to the extent required to perform the Work to the satisfaction of Enphase.
2.2. Engineering Changes. Enphase may from time to time, request that Supplier incorporate engineering changes into the Product by providing Supplier with a description of the proposed engineering change as the Enphase deems necessary, for Supplier to evaluate its feasibility and cost (an “Engineering Change Order” or “ECO”). An ECO is required when the form, fit, or function of the design of the Product and/or Specifications are affected. Supplier shall provide a written response in the form of an "Engineering Change Analysis" form to Enphase, within three (3) business days of receipt of an ECO, if such changes affect the per-unit price and/or delivery of a Product. Enphase shall respond with a written acceptance in the
form of a purchase order or rejection of the Supplier "Engineering Change Analysis" form within three (3) business days of receipt thereof. Upon receiving Enphase written acceptance, Supplier will proceed with engineering changes as given in the ECO. For the avoidance of doubt, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Supplier shall not make any changes to the processes or designs as stated in the Specifications, without Enphase’s express prior written consent.
2.3. Tooling; Non-Recurring Expenses; Software. Enphase shall pay for or obtain and consign to Supplier any Enphase Controlled Equipment, as outlined in Exhibit D, Product-specific tooling, equipment or software and other reasonably necessary non-recurring expenses, to be set forth in Supplier's quotation. All software that Enphase provides to Supplier, or any test software that Enphase engages Supplier to develop is and shall remain the property of Enphase at all times. The Supplier shall promptly notify Enphase in case of any non-consignment of Enphase Controlled Equipment required to perform the Work.
2.4. Enphase Controlled Equipment. All Enphase Controlled Equipment will remain the property of Enphase; however, Supplier shall be responsible for managing and maintaining all such equipment. This Agreement shall be updated to include any additional Enphase Controlled Equipment made available by Enphase for Supplier’s use in performing the Work. Notwithstanding the location of any Enphase Controlled Equipment at a Supplier or other non-Enphase facility, or the failure to list any item of Enphase Controlled Equipment in the Agreement or a purchase order, all right, title and interest in and to any Enphase Controlled Equipment will be and remain with Enphase, and Supplier will have no title or ownership interest in such Enphase Controlled Equipment. Supplier will provide Enphase with reasonable access to all Enphase Controlled Equipment located at a Supplier or other non-Enphase facility, and, notwithstanding any contrary terms that may be contained herein, will be responsible for all costs and expenses associated with repair or replacement of any Enphase Controlled Equipment or any part thereof damaged (reasonable
wear and tear excepted) by Supplier, its employees, permitted subcontractors, agents or invitees (excluding Enphase). Neither Supplier nor its assignees will file a mechanic’s lien or similar lien, security interest or other encumbrance, on Enphase Controlled Equipment or otherwise use Enphase Controlled Equipment as collateral for any financing. Without limiting the foregoing, in the event any such lien or security interest is filed, Supplier or its assignee, as the case may be, will be responsible for the immediate satisfaction, payment or bonding of any such lien or security interest. Unless a later return date is requested by Enphase, within ten (10) business days following the earlier of completion of the applicable purchase order or any expiration or termination of this Agreement, Supplier will return each item of Enphase Controlled Equipment to Enphase in substantially the same condition it was in when initially provided to Supplier, reasonable wear and tear excepted.
2.5. Cost Reduction Projects. Supplier agrees to continuously, during the term of this Agreement, to use its commercially reasonable efforts to seek ways to reduce the cost of manufacturing Products by methods such as elimination of Materials, redefinition of Specifications, and re-design of assembly or test methods. Upon implementation of such ways that have been initiated by Enphase, Enphase will receive 100% of the demonstrated cost reduction for the balance of the quarter in which it is found. Costs shall be formally evaluated at the end of each quarter and standards shall be adjusted based upon that evaluation. Justification for all costs (including a costed BOM) shall be provided to Enphase no later than 10 business days before the end of the quarter. New standards will be effective for all shipments starting on the first day of each quarter. The Parties shall mutually agree upon non-binding cost reduction targets during their QBRs.
2.6. Factory Access. Supplier agrees to grant access as needed to Enphase or its representatives for factory audits at no charge to Enphase. Enphase may at its option, seat its employees or representatives
onsite within the Supplier’s factory premises (“Onsite Team”), towards establishing an Enphase ‘office desk’ within the Supplier’s factory premises. The Supplier shall provide all facilities, equipment and support reasonably necessary for the Enphase employees (or representatives, as applicable) to carry out their day to day business activities. The Onsite Team may access the Supplier’s factory at any time during the term of this Agreement, without prior written notice to the Supplier, and the Supplier expressly consents to the same. Upon providing a written notice at least two (2) weeks in advance, Enphase may bring any of its customers, with the intention of carrying out an Audit (as defined herein), and the Supplier agrees to co-operate with Enphase (or such Enphase customers, as applicable) for conducting such an Audit. Notwithstanding anything else contained in this Agreement, and in addition to any of Enphase’s rights of Audit and access, Enphase may, upon providing 24 hours’ notice to the Supplier, access and/or Audit the Supplier’s factory along with a technical support team.
2.7. IT Support. Enphase requires a client-to-site connection to the Supplier facility be available at all times to monitor production test equipment and to troubleshoot any potential problems. Supplier shall provide a static internet connection, through which Enphase can tunnel via a secure protocol such as VPN. Enphase shall, at its discretion and to the extent required in Enphase’s sole opinion, provide pre-configured equipment for installation at the Supplier facilities.
(a) Prior to the commencement of the Work, Enphase will have the right (but not the obligation) to conduct a quality Audit on the factory or other premises used by the Supplier to perform the Work, in order to confirm whether such factory complies with the Specifications (as applicable). The Supplier will resolve to Enphase’s satisfaction, any critical or major issues identified by Enphase during such Audit, prior to beginning production of the Products.
(b) Enphase is contracting to buy conforming Products, assemblies or components, and expects Defect- free yields from Supplier. Enphase seeks a relationship with Supplier that maximizes the probability of 100% Defect-free Product. To ensure quality, the Supplier shall dedicate a team of adequate number of Supplier Personnel with appropriate qualifications, along with a team leader who shall be fluent in English. The Supplier shall ensure that adequately qualified Supplier Personnel are available at all times to Enphase. Supplier will set up an incoming quality control (“IQC") system to inspect all Materials used in the Product based on the component Specifications on a sampling basis. Supplier will ensure only IQC “passed” Material is utilized in the Products, and will maintain records for lot traceability into the production serial range. Supplier will ensure incoming Materials have no substitution for country of origin, and will require a COC per lot. Enphase shall subject the Products delivered by the Supplier to an accelerated lifetime testing regimen as well as ongoing reliablility testing. Any failures in such testing that arise from differences in Materials, Specifications or processes specified by Enphase in this Agreement or any subsequent ECOs shall be considered a Defect
(c) Quality includes, but is not limited to, all properties of the Product that contribute to customer satisfaction, including function, workmanship, appearance, performance, reliability, timely delivery, invoicing, packing, packaging, meeting hazardous substance restrictions and support. Supplier will follow a PPAP process as outlined in Exhibit B to launch each new production TAN. Supplier will develop an operator certification program and online station validation/record keeping to ensure only “trained/certified” operators are on the production line.
(d) The primary goal of Supplier’s quality planning will be prevention and early detection of Defects, as opposed to reacting to Defects as they are discovered. Upon request, Supplier will demonstrate to Enphase that its quality control plans are inherently capable of meeting Defect-free standards. The Supplier will endeavor
to obtain and maintain the ISO 9001:2015 certification during the term of this Agreement.
(e) Supplier will deliver Products conforming to applicable specifications and which are 100% Defect- free. The date code limitation for all inbound components will be the greater of: (i) the designated expiration date of the Materials; or twenty four (24) months from the date of manufacture. Supplier will develop a quality program for its production process that ensures Products are Defect-free. At Enphase’s request, Supplier will supply Enphase with process control data to help Enphase ascertain the probability of receiving Defect-free Product. During any production period, the Supplier will follow the DPPM shutdown rules as detailed in Exhibit B.
(f) At its option, Enphase may inspect and test any or all Products received by Enphase, and such inspection may be by lot sampling or by testing individual units. When lot sampling is used, the applicable standard will be the industry-recognized zero defects (C = 0) plan at the appropriate confidence level. Such testing and/or inspection may take place at Enphase’s facility or at Supplier’s facility. If at Supplier’s facility, Supplier agrees to provide reasonable support and services to and for Enphase’s representative. Supplier agrees that the representations and warranties made in this Agreement with respect to Products will continue to apply regardless of whether Enphase accepts, tests or inspects any Product Unit or lot.
(g) The Supplier acknowledges that the obligations on quality provided in Sections 2.8 (a) to (f) are essential so that Enphase may achieve its goals under this Agreement. To the extent that any Materials, or portions of the Work are performed for the Supplier by any third-party supplier, the Supplier shall ensure that such third- party Suppliers are bound by obligations at least as onerous as those in this Agreement, with relation to quality and compliance to the applicable Specifications. Supplier shall notify Enphase in writing of any such third-party supplier, and Enphase reserves the right to reasonably reject Supplier’s use of any third party supplier.
(h) If Defects, including Enphase’s rejection and/or return of Product as permitted under this Agreement, cause a Line Down, Supplier, within 24 hours of receipt of notice thereof from Enphase will provide qualified repair personnel at Enphase’s or Enphase’s customer’s facility to repair or sort, at Enphase ’s option, such defective Product at no cost to Enphase or Enphase’s customer. “Line down,” as used in the preceding sentence, means the cessation or delay of manufacturing, assembly or shipment operations experienced by Enphase and/or a Enphase customer as a result of a Defect or action or inaction by Supplier.
(i) If any Product does not comply to the Specifications, in accordance with Section 2.8 (e) and is therefore rejected by Enphase, Supplier will supply Enphase with a return material authorization or replacement Product within three (3) business days of Enphase’s request. Supplier further agrees to supply Enphase with an initial failure analysis within 24 hours and a containment plan within 48 hours and to provide due diligence in obtaining a full failure analysis within seven days of receipt of samples of rejected Product. Supplier agrees to provide the full failure analysis to Enphase in the format prescribed by Enphase.
(j) If any replacement Products delivered pursuant to Section 2.8 (e) have Defects or otherwise fail to conform to the requirements of this Agreement, Enphase may, at its option, cancel the related purchase order in whole or in part, without penalty or liability whatsoever to Enphase and/or Enphase may avail itself of any remedy set forth herein or pursuant to applicable Law.
(k) Upon request, Supplier will make available to Enphase all Product test data relating to qualification as well as production yield to evidence conformance to specifications and quality control. Supplier will facilitate product sampling for ongoing reliability testing (“ORT”) for Enphase. Sampling program is detailed in Exhibit
B. Supplier will provide resources at their facility to perform 1st level failure analysis for any failures that occur in ORT. Supplier will provide a weekly ORT report which tracks the status of the units submitted to the chambers, and the failure status by week.
(l) The Parties will meet on a weekly basis, to conduct an ongoing review of the steps required to ensure Product quality as envisaged by this Agreement. Supplier will track yield at each process step/test station, and perform pareto analysis, root cause analysis and corrective action per week to address the top items causing first pass yield loss (including NTF) per week. Data will be presented in a format as prescribed by Enphase to demonstrate the yield results, paretos, and action taken to address issues. This data will be reviewed in a joint weekly meeting between the Parties.
(m) For the purpose of ensuring quality and effective compliance to each Party’s obligations under this Agreement, a quarterly business review (“QBR”) shall be held every three (3) months, face-to-face in a mutually agreed location, generally at one of Supplier’s locations (i.e. a factory currently performing Work for Enphase). It may on occasion be held at an Enphase office. Conference call participation should be limited. To maintain focus and ensure direct and open communication, only key participants shall be present and shall include senior management representation from both Parties. The purpose of the QBR includes, but is not limited to reviewing Supplier performance, business trends, quality performance, improvement initiatives and strategic direction. The items to be reviewed shall, at either Party’s request, include items such as cost savings initiatives, Product pricing, Special Inventory and Lead Times. In general, these meetings shall assess the future outlook and review the previous period.
