ARTICLE 2
SERVICES

2.1    Proposals. From time to time during the Term, the parties may negotiate and enter into a Proposal. Each Proposal shall clearly define the Services, the Product, and the responsibilities of the parties with respect to the project work, and will include a scope of work, pricing and, if appropriate, payment schedule, Client-Supplied Materials, Components, and such other terms as the parties deem appropriate. Each Proposal shall be subject to, and shall incorporate by reference, all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. To the extent any terms or conditions of a Proposal conflict with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control, except to the extent that such Proposal expressly and specifically states an intent to supersede this Agreement on a specific matter. The initial Proposal agreed by the parties is attached to this Agreement as Schedule B-1 (the “Initial Proposal”). For clarity, an initial draft of the Initial Proposal was also
86274635_42


attached to the Term Sheet, and this Agreement will supersede and replace the Term Sheet as to the performance of Services under the Initial Proposal. For ease of administration, following signature, the parties shall append each subsequent Proposal to Schedule B of this Agreement (e.g., as a successive Schedule B-2, B-3, etc.), provided, that the parties’ failure to so append any such Proposal that references this Agreement shall not limit, negate or otherwise affect the effectiveness of such Proposal, which shall become effective upon signature by the parties.

2.2.    Changes to Services.

(a)    Change of Scope. Any material change in the scope or details of a Proposal or the assumptions upon which a Proposal is based (including (i) postponement of the agreed starting date for any Services or suspension of any Services by Client and (ii) changes to the Specifications or master batch record applicable to such Proposal) shall require a written amendment to the Proposal (such written amendment, a “Change of Scope”), regardless of whether the change requires any change in pricing or timelines. To the extent any Change of Scope involves changes in the pricing or timelines under such Proposal, any such change in pricing or timelines shall be set forth in such Change of Scope. Each Change of Scope will become effective when, and Cambrex shall not be obligated to perform any modified or additional Services until, it has been signed by both parties. Cambrex will be given a reasonable period of time within which to implement the changes. Both parties shall act promptly and in good faith when considering a Change of Scope requested by the other party. Where changes are at Client’s request for the purpose of enabling Client to comply with its commitments to Regulatory Authorities relating to submissions for Product approvals or required by Applicable Law, Cambrex shall not unreasonably withhold, condition or delay its consent to such change. Where a Change of Scope involves changes to the Specifications or master batch record applicable to any Proposal, or any other technical change, Section 2.2(b) (Specifications Amendments and Technical Changes) shall also apply.

(b)    Specifications Amendments and Technical Changes. Without limiting Section 2.2 (Change of Scope), changes to a Product’s Specifications or master batch record or to the Quality Agreement, and any other technical changes to Services, requested by either party will be implemented only following a technical and cost review by the parties, and are subject to Client and Cambrex reaching agreement on (i) appropriate revisions to prices and any other impacted fees under this Agreement and applicable Proposals due to increases or decreases in Cambrex’s costs and (ii) a timeframe for implementation by Cambrex. The parties will memorialize such agreement by executing appropriate Proposals, Changes of Scope or amendments to this Agreement, as applicable, in accordance with Section 11.5 (Entire Agreement; Amendments; Waivers). Where changes are at Client’s request (including for the purpose of enabling Client to comply with its commitments to Regulatory Authorities relating to submissions for Product approvals) or required by Applicable Law, Client shall purchase from Cambrex (to the extent not yet paid for), and Cambrex shall (at Client’s election and at Client’s cost) deliver to Client or destroy, all inventories of Product-Specific Components, finished or unusable work-in-process Product or other Product-specific items rendered obsolete as a result of such amendment.

2.3.    Development Activities; Approval Support; Regulatory Matters.

(a)    Approval Support. Cambrex shall engage in various development activities and perform various tests as necessary for receipt of Regulatory Authority approval for the development and manufacture of Products, including without limitation, being prepared for pre-approval inspections by Regulatory Authorities and performing other development and regulatory activities; in each case as set forth in the Initial Proposal or subsequent Proposals.
(b)    Regulatory Filings. Client shall have the sole responsibility for filing all Product-specific documents with all Regulatory Authorities and taking any other actions that may be required for the receipt or maintenance of Regulatory Authority approval for the development and manufacture of Products. Cambrex shall have the sole responsibility for filing all documents with Regulatory Authorities and taking any other actions that may be required for the receipt or maintenance of Regulatory Authority licensure of the Facility, subject to reasonable consultation with Client with respect to the form and substance of such filings to the extent such filings are specific to or reference Products. Cambrex shall be responsible for all costs and expenses related to the maintenance of the Facility in compliance with Applicable Law. Cambrex shall manufacture the Product at the Facility, shall not change the location of the Facility, and shall not change any systems or equipment involved in the manufacture of the Products or the provision of Services that, in each case, would require a change to the Specifications or require Client to make any regulatory filing related to the Product, except with Client’s prior written consent.

(c)    Assistance with Regulatory Filings. Cambrex shall provide Client with such information and assistance as Client may reasonably require for purposes of applying for and maintaining all Regulatory Authority filings and approvals for the Products, including without limitation, providing Client with all reports, authorizations, certificates, methodologies, specifications and other documentation in the possession or under the control of

2.4.    Cambrex Responsibilities. In consideration of Client’s payment of the fees due under, and the other terms and conditions of, this Agreement, Cambrex shall perform the Services at the Facility in accordance with this Agreement (including the applicable Proposal). To this end:

(a)    Materials & Equipment.

(i)    Client-Supplied Materials. Upon Client’s delivery of Client-Supplied Materials to Cambrex in accordance with Section 2.5(b)(i) (Provision of Materials), Cambrex shall: (A) visually inspect Client-Supplied Materials upon receipt to verify their identity and quantity and to identify any patent defects (i.e., defects that are not Latent Defects), (B) promptly test any Client-Supplied Material only to the extent expressly required by the applicable Proposal or the Quality Agreement, (C) promptly notify Client if it detects a defect in Client-Supplied Materials and follow Client’s reasonable written instructions in respect of return or disposal of defective Client-Supplied Materials, at Client’s cost, (D) store Client-Supplied Materials at the Facility in consideration for the monthly fee agreed in each applicable Proposal, under suitable conditions in accordance with the specifications therefor (as included in the Specifications or the Proposal, or otherwise agreed by the parties in writing) and Applicable Law, (E) use Client-Supplied Materials only to provide the Services, and (F) use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize the loss or waste of API and other Client-Supplied Materials.

Cambrex shall test all such Components as set forth in the applicable Proposal or Quality Agreement. Unless otherwise specified in a given Proposal, Cambrex shall charge through to Client its out-of-pocket costs in connection with the purchase of Components (including taxes, shipping, insurance, etc. but excluding late payment or other vendor fees arising from Cambrex’s wrongful act or omission vis-à-vis such vendor) at Cambrex’s actual cost plus, solely with respect to Product-Specific Components, a [***] administrative fee. Cambrex shall test all Components after receipt at the Facility to the extent required by the Proposal or the Quality Agreement. Without limiting any obligations of Cambrex with respect to quality of Components and conformance with the Specifications, Cambrex will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize the cost of Components procured by Cambrex pursuant to this Section 2.4(a)(ii). From time to time, Client may suggest to Cambrex that it procure one or more Product-Specific Components from a particular Third Party Component supplier, and in such event (A) Sections 2.2 (Changes to Service) and 3.1(b) (Changes to Pricing) shall apply and (B) Client shall audit and qualify such Client-designated suppliers as necessary. At Client’s written request, Cambrex will perform such audit and qualification activities and may charge Client the fees set forth on Schedule G in consideration for such services. Following the initial qualification of any such supplier, Cambrex will procure the supply of the applicable Product-Specific Components from such supplier on terms and conditions reasonably acceptable to Cambrex and will be responsible for the ongoing management of such supplier as set forth in the Quality Agreement.

(iii)    Equipment. Except as the parties may agree in a given Proposal or otherwise in writing from time to time, Cambrex shall procure and provide at its cost all equipment needed to perform the Services.

86274635_42


(ii)    Packaging. Cambrex shall package Clinical Stage Product as required in the Proposal. For clarity, packaging may be in bulk or in primary or secondary packaging. Cambrex shall imprint or affix the batch number onto the Clinical Stage Product as described in the Specifications and required by the Quality Agreement and cGMPs. Cambrex’s name shall not appear on any Clinical Stage Product packaging except to the extent required by any Applicable Law or consented to in writing by Cambrex.

(iii)    Quality Control. Cambrex shall perform quality control and quality assurance testing of Clinical Stage Product as and to the extent required by the Quality Agreement (or, if there is no Quality Agreement, the Proposal). Batch review and release to Client shall be the responsibility of Cambrex’s quality assurance group. Cambrex shall perform such Batch review and release responsibilities in accordance with Cambrex’s standard operating procedures, except to the extent such procedures conflict with any procedures prescribed by the Quality Agreement or the applicable Proposal. Unless prevented by significant deviations or failures, or agreed to in writing by Client, Cambrex will complete its Batch review within three (3) calendar weeks following completion of Clinical Stage Product production. Client shall review and respond to any Batch investigational report provided by Cambrex within ten (10) business days. Each time Cambrex delivers a Batch to Client, Cambrex shall provide Client with a certificate of compliance and any other certificates required under the Quality Agreement, which shall include, if Cambrex is responsible for Product testing, a certificate of analysis. At Client’s reasonable request and expense, Cambrex will provide copies of additional Batch documentation, such as Batch manufacturing records, lot packaging records, equipment data printouts, raw material data, and laboratory notebooks.

(c)    Non-Conforming Services. Subject to Section 3.5 (Pre-Validation Batches), in the event of an error by Cambrex in performing Clinical Manufacturing Services, the terms of Schedule A shall govern. In the event of a material error by Cambrex in performing any other Services, Cambrex shall, in agreement with Client, repeat the relevant Services at Cambrex’s cost, and if such error is caused by Cambrex’s Fault, then Cambrex will also reimburse Client for the cost of the necessary Client-Supplied Materials (subject, for the avoidance of doubt, to Section 7.1(b) (API)).

(d)    Stock Recovery & Recalls. Each party shall promptly notify the other party by telephone (confirmed by written notice) of any information of which it becomes aware that might affect the safety, efficacy or marketability of any Clinical Stage Product or that could reasonably be expected to result in the following: any Authority’s request or requirement of, or Client’s reasonable determination of the need for (i) a stock recovery of Clinical Stage Product used in human clinical trials or biostudies or (ii) a recall of Clinical Stage Product sold commercially under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) or other authorization for commercial sale (each of (i) and (ii), a “Recall”). The conduct of and regulatory filings for any Recall shall be controlled, implemented and made by Client, and Cambrex will co-operate in such Recall as reasonably requested by Client, having regard to all Applicable Law. Client shall provide Cambrex a reasonably detailed description of those portions of any submission to a Regulatory Authority in respect of any Recall that could reasonably be expected to impact Cambrex’s performance of the Services. Client shall bear the cost of any Recall and reimburse Cambrex for the expenses incurred by Cambrex in connection with any Recall; unless such Recall is caused primarily by Cambrex’s gross negligence, recklessness, willful misconduct, material breach of the Quality Agreement, failure to follow any written manufacturing procedures (or deviations therefrom) to which the parties have mutually agreed, or violation of cGMPs (to the extent applicable), in which case Cambrex will reimburse Client for Client’s reasonable, actual and documented out-of-pocket administrative and logistical expenses of conducting such Recall and will bear the expenses incurred by Cambrex in connection with such Recall. For clarity, to the extent that a Recall involves Clinical Stage Product that is alleged to be Non-Conforming Product, the parties’ respective rights and remedies with respect to such Clinical Stage Product shall be governed by Schedule A.

2.5.    Client Responsibilities. In support of Cambrex’s provision of the Services under this Agreement, Client shall provide certain information, oversight and materials in accordance with this Agreement (including the applicable Proposal). To this end:

(a)    Information & Oversight.

In addition, the prices provided in a Proposal are subject to annual review by the parties to address inflation or deflation, with any such change being calculated based on changes to the Producer Price Index for prescription pharmaceuticals as reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (published at the end of the calendar year prior to the calendar year in which such price adjustment is considered).

(b)    Changes to Pricing. Pricing for Services will be subject to change in accordance with Section 2.2 (Changes to Services).

(c)    Cancellations and Postponements. Client may cancel any Proposal in its entirety by terminating it in accordance with Section 5.2(c) (Convenience), subject to Sections 2.2(a) (Change of Scope) and 5.3 (Obligations on Termination). Client may cancel any Proposal in part, or postpone any Proposal in its entirety or in part, upon [***] written notice to Cambrex, the effective date of such cancellation or postponement to be the date that is five (5) business days after Cambrex’s receipt of such notice or, if later, such other date specified in such notice; provided, that any such postponement or partial cancellation shall not relieve Client of its obligation to pay all costs or fees that have accrued prior to such postponement or partial cancellation (including payment of amounts due pursuant to Section 2.4(a)(ii) (Components)) and the terms of Sections 2.7 (Samples and Excess Materials) and 5.3 (Obligations on Termination) shall apply as though the applicable postponed or partially cancelled Services had been terminated. Client and Cambrex shall cooperate in good faith to reschedule any postponed Services to a mutually acceptable date. Any Services that have not been rescheduled to commence within [***] following the
86274635_42


originally (first) scheduled start date shall be subject to re-pricing by Cambrex to account for changes in the cost drivers contemplated by Sections 3.1(a) (Price; Price Adjustments) and 3.1(b) (Changes to Pricing). In addition, Cambrex may cancel or terminate the applicable Proposal upon [***] written notice to Client if any such Services have not been rescheduled within [***] following the originally (first) scheduled start date, and subject to any incremental costs and fees that would have been payable had Client cancelled at the outset instead of postponing.

(d)    Retesting. Cambrex reserves the right to charge Client for retesting and required investigational studies performed that are not directly due to Cambrex’s Fault. Any tests or investigations requested by Client that are not required pursuant to the Proposal or, if applicable, the Quality Agreement will be charged to Client at Cambrex’s then-current standard rates.

3.2.    Invoicing. The terms of this Section 3.2 (Invoicing) shall apply except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed in a Proposal: Cambrex shall send invoices by email to such email address as Client may provide to Cambrex in writing from time to time. For Batch manufacture or packaging (including Clinical Manufacturing Services), Cambrex shall invoice Client (a) for Clinical Stage Product, following quality release of the Batch by Cambrex’s quality assurance department or (b) for Product that is not Clinical Stage Product, following completion of the last step of actual manufacturing and packaging (as applicable) of such Product. Cambrex shall invoice Client for all other fees due under this Agreement (including for Services not involving Batch manufacture, for obsolete items pursuant to Section 2.2(b) (Specifications Amendments and Technical Changes), for Components pursuant to Section 2.4(a)(ii) (Components), for storage fees pursuant to Section 2.6(c) (Storage), and for shipping charges pursuant to Section 2.7 (Samples and Excess Materials)) as and when earned or accrued. Fees assessed on an annual basis, if any (such as GDUFA or annual product review fees, if applicable, or as may be agreed in a Proposal), will be invoiced as of the first day of each calendar year. Each such invoice shall reference this Agreement and the applicable Proposal, and identify in reasonable detail the nature of the charges therein. If the invoice includes fees for manufacturing or packaging Clinical Stage Product, the invoice shall also identify the Batch number, Purchase Order number, and quantity of the applicable Clinical Stage Product.

3.3.    Payment Terms. Client shall pay all invoiced amounts that are not subject to a good faith dispute by Client in full within [***] following Client’s receipt of each applicable invoice. Client shall make payment in the currency indicated in the applicable Proposal to the account indicated in the applicable invoice. If any payment is neither received by Cambrex by its due date nor disputed in good faith by Client, then Cambrex may, in addition to any other remedies available at law or in equity, take one or more of the following actions: (a) charge interest on the outstanding sum from the due date (both before and after any judgment) at a monthly compounding rate equal to [***] per year (or, if less, the maximum amount permitted by Applicable Law) until paid in full, plus all reasonable costs of collection of late payments, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred through the date of actual payment (but excluding court costs); (b) cease all work hereunder until all Client accounts are brought current; (c) require Client to pre-pay all activities before Cambrex initiates work or procures Components in connection with any Proposals; and (d) exercise its rights under Section 11.2(a) (Force Majeure).

3.4.    Taxes. All taxes, duties and other amounts assessed by any Authority (excluding tax based on net income or real property and franchise taxes) on Client-Supplied Materials, Product, Services or other amounts due hereunder are the responsibility of Client, and Client shall reimburse Cambrex for all such taxes, duties and amounts required to be paid by Cambrex to any Authority (or such sums will be added to invoices directed at Client, where applicable). Cambrex shall reasonably cooperate with Client to utilize any legally available reductions or exemptions from any such taxes, duties or assessments.

3.5.    Pre-Validation Batches. Client shall be responsible for the full cost of each Batch produced under this Agreement at the theoretical quantities when priced on a per-unit basis (including Clinical Stage Batches and Batches necessary to support the validation portion of Client’s submissions for Product approvals by Regulatory Authorities and any Batch manufactured following (a) a change in Specifications or (b) a scale-up in the manufacturing process to produce greater quantities of Product), even if the Batch fails to meet the Specifications (and in such case, Client shall also be responsible for the cost of destroying the out-of-Specification Batch and its components), until all manufacturing, testing and storage methods and processes have been validated in accordance with industry standards (including production of at least three (3) consecutive cGMP Batches of each strength and packaging configuration that meet the then-applicable Specifications); provided, that the foregoing shall not apply to the extent such failure to meet the Specifications would not have occurred but for Cambrex’s Fault, in which case Cambrex will be responsible for such costs. Cambrex and Client shall cooperate in good faith to determine and resolve any problems causing the out-of-Specification Batch.

COOPERATION
4.1.    Liaisons; Quarterly Review. Promptly following the signing of this Agreement, each party shall appoint one of its employees to be a relationship manager responsible for liaising between the parties with respect to the Services. The relationship managers shall meet, either in person or by teleconference, not less than quarterly to review the current status of the business relationship and manage any issues that have arisen.

4.2.    Records & Samples.

(a)    Records. Unless the parties otherwise agree in writing, Cambrex shall, at its own cost and expense, keep materially complete and accurate records with respect to the performance of the Services, including, without limitation, (i) Batch, laboratory data, reports and other technical records, (ii) records of Cambrex’s purchases of Components and Dedicated Equipment sufficient to verify costs and to trace the ownership and possession, (iii) records necessary to verify the accuracy of other charges invoiced to Client by Cambrex under this Agreement, including pass-through charges (i.e., amounts invoiced by Third Parties) (provided, for the avoidance of doubt, that the foregoing shall not be construed as giving Client a general right to audit Cambrex’s financial records), and (iv) all other records reasonably necessary to document Cambrex’s performance of the Services in accordance with Applicable Law (collectively, “Records”). Copies of Records shall be retained by Cambrex for a period of three (3) years following the date on which Cambrex completed the relevant Services, or longer if required by Applicable Law. Before destroying Records, Cambrex will use its reasonable efforts to contact Client to offer Client the opportunity to take delivery and possession of such Records at Client’s cost.

(b)    Retain Samples. Unless the parties otherwise agree in writing, Cambrex shall, at its own cost and expense, keep materially complete and accurate retain samples of Clinical Stage Product as necessary to comply with Applicable Law (“Retain Samples”). Retain Samples shall be retained by Cambrex for a period of one (1) year following the date of Clinical Stage Product expiry, or longer if required by Applicable Law. Before destroying Retain Samples, Cambrex will use its reasonable efforts to contact Client to offer Client the opportunity to take delivery and possession of such Retain Samples Records at Client’s cost.

4.3.    Client Inspections. Once every [***] during the Term (or, if for cause, more frequently as reasonably agreed by the parties), upon reasonable (but no less than [***]) prior written notice, Cambrex shall grant Client access, during normal business hours, to areas of the Facility in which Services are performed in order to verify that Cambrex is performing the Services (including, without limitation, manufacturing, packaging, testing and storage activities) in accordance with any Specifications, the Proposal, and cGMPs or other regulatory requirements (to the extent applicable). During any such inspection, Cambrex shall also permit Client to inspect Records, samples, and reports relating to this Agreement. The parties’ relationship managers shall arrange such inspections. Cambrex’s quality assurance staff shall cooperate with Client, as reasonably necessary, in any inspection conducted pursuant to this Section 4.3 (Client Inspections). Inspections shall be designed to minimize disruption of operations at the Facility, and shall be limited to two (2) Client representatives for up to two (2) consecutive days. A Cambrex representative shall be present at all times during each inspection. Client’s representatives shall comply with the Facility’s rules. Client shall indemnify and hold harmless Cambrex for any act or omission of Client’s representatives while on Cambrex’s premises. For the clarity, the foregoing inspections will not limit the quarterly meeting of relationship managers pursuant to Section 4.1 (Liaisons; Quarterly Review).

4.4    Regulatory Inspections. Each party shall promptly notify the other party of any planned or actual Facility inspection by any Regulatory Authority specifically involving a Product, except for unannounced inspections. Client shall have the right to be present at the Facility during any planned inspection, so long as Client provides (to the extent reasonably practicable) at least two (2) weeks’ notice of such desire. Client acknowledges that it may not direct the manner in which Cambrex fulfills its obligations to permit inspection by and to communicate with Regulatory Authorities. Cambrex shall notify Client of receipt of any Form 483s, warning letters, and inquiries by any Regulatory Authority or other significant regulatory action that could reasonably be expected to impact the regulatory status of the Products or Cambrex’s ability to perform the Services in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Cambrex shall provide Client with copies of the sections of all Form 483s or comparable regulatory notices that are specific to any Product, redacted as necessary to preserve the confidentiality of Cambrex’s other information. Likewise, Client shall provide Cambrex with a reasonably detailed description of those portions of any material correspondence with any Regulatory Authority, including any FDA refusal to file, rejection or warning letters, in each case that could reasonably be expected to impact Cambrex’s performance of Services and/or the timing and volume of Client’s purchases under this Agreement. If an inspection by a Regulatory Authority is solely attributable to a Product or Proposal (such as a pre-approval inspection), Client shall reimburse Cambrex for all reasonable and documented costs associated with such inspection.

86274635_42


4.5.    Quality Agreement. As soon as reasonably practicable after the signing of the Initial Proposal, and in any event prior to Cambrex’s performance of any Services for any GMP grade Product, the parties shall negotiate in good faith and enter into an agreement setting out the quality assurance standards and protocols applicable to the relevant Services under the Initial Proposal and each subsequent Proposal hereunder and the parties’ responsibilities in respect thereof (each, a “Quality Agreement”). If the parties have signed a Quality Agreement prior to the Effective Date, it is attached hereto as Schedule C. Unless otherwise expressly set forth in a new Quality Agreement entered into by the parties to cover a specific Proposal, the first Quality Agreement entered into by the parties shall cover the Initial Proposal and each subsequent Proposal hereunder. Following signature, the parties shall append each Quality Agreement as a successive Schedule C. No Quality Agreement shall in any way determine liability or financial responsibility of the parties for the responsibilities set forth therein. In the event of a conflict between any of the provisions of this Agreement and a Quality Agreement with respect to quality-related activities, including compliance with cGMPs, the provisions of the Quality Agreement shall govern. In the event of a conflict between any of the provisions of this Agreement and a Quality Agreement with respect to any commercial matters, including allocation of risk, liability and financial responsibility, the provisions of this Agreement shall govern.

86274635_42



(b)    By Client. Client shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Cambrex, its Affiliates, and its and their respective directors, officers and employees (“Cambrex Indemnitees”) from and against any and all Losses in connection with any Third Party Claim arising or resulting from (i) a breach by Client of any of its obligations, warranties, or representations under this Agreement, (ii) the Fault of any Client Indemnitee, (iii) any actual or alleged infringement, violation or misuse of any Intellectual Property rights held by Third Parties in respect of any aspect of any Product (other than solely by reason of the use of Cambrex’s Intellectual Property (including Cambrex’s Proprietary IP and Inventions generated, conceived or reduced to practice solely by Cambrex under this Agreement)), or (iv) any distribution or use of or exposure to any API or Product, including the conduct of any clinical trial utilizing, or commercial sale of, any Clinical Stage Product that is the subject of any Clinical Manufacturing Services; in each case, except to the extent that such Losses arise or result from the gross negligence, recklessness or willful misconduct of any Cambrex Indemnitee. In addition, Client shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Cambrex Indemnitees from and against any and all Losses resulting from or relating to any filings with any Regulatory Authority by or on behalf of Client or any of its Affiliates or licensees, including filings under 21 U.S.C. 355 or Section 505 of the U.S. Food and Drug Act (or non-U.S. equivalents) and related claims or proceedings (including Losses associated with Cambrex’s obligation to respond to Third Party subpoenas); except to the extent that such Losses arise or result from the gross negligence, recklessness or willful misconduct of any Cambrex Indemnitee.

(c)    Procedure. In the event a party seeks indemnity under this Section 7.2 (Indemnification), it shall: (i) promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of the Third Party Claim subject to indemnification (an “Indemnification Claim”, and the date of such notice, the “Indemnification Claim Date”); (ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of such Third Party Claim; (iii) reasonably cooperate with the indemnifying party in the defense of such Third Party Claim; (iv) not settle or compromise such Third Party Claim or make any admission relating thereto; and (v) permit the indemnifying party to control the defense and settlement of such Third Party Claim using counsel selected in the indemnifying party’s reasonable discretion upon reasonable consultation with the indemnified party, all at the indemnifying party’s cost and expense. The indemnified party may be represented by its own counsel in connection with such Third Party Claim, and such representation shall be at the indemnified party’s own expense unless the indemnifying party fails to assume the defense of such Third Party Claim as required hereunder. The indemnifying party shall have the right to settle any such Third Party Claim without the consent of any indemnitee so long as such settlement does not admit to any wrongdoing by any indemnitee, does not impose any liability or obligation (whether financial or otherwise) on any indemnitee and fully releases the indemnitees from liability in connection with such Third Party Claim. The indemnified party’s consent to any other settlement shall be required. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such Third Party Claim seeks damages in an amount exceeding an applicable maximum liability set forth in Section 7.1(c) (Maximum Liability) for the indemnifying party’s liability in respect of such indemnity, then, unless the indemnifying party waives its rights to any such limitation of liability under Section 7.1(c) (Maximum Liability) with respect to such Third Party Claim and such indemnity, the indemnified party will have the first right to control the defense and settlement of such Third Party Claim using counsel selected in the indemnified party’s sole discretion and at the indemnifying party’s reasonable cost and expense. In such event, the indemnified party shall not settle any such Third Party Claim in a manner that would result in liability for the indemnifying without the consent of the indemnifying party.

7.3.    Insurance. During the Term and for at least [***] thereafter, each party shall obtain from and maintain with reputable and financially secure insurance carriers prudent insurance coverage appropriate to cover its activities related to and obligations under this Agreement. Each party shall provide to the other party a certificate evidencing such insurance upon the other party’s request.

7.4.    Reasonable Allocation of Risk. The parties agree that (a) the provisions of this Agreement (including this ARTICLE 7 (Indemnitees & Insurance)) are reasonable and create a reasonable allocation of risk having regard to the relative profits the parties respectively expect to derive from the Products; (b) Cambrex, in consideration of its fees for the provision of the Services, has not accepted a greater degree of the risks arising from the manufacture, distribution, sale and use of the Products based on the fact that Client has developed the Products and requires Cambrex to manufacture and label the Products strictly in accordance with the Specifications; and (c) Client and not Cambrex is in a position to inform and advise potential users of the Products as to the circumstances and manner of use of the Products.

ARTICLE 8
CONFIDENTIALITY
8.1.    Confidentiality.

(a)    Information.
(i)    Definitions. “Confidential Information” means any scientific, clinical, regulatory, marketing, business, operational, financial or commercial information or data of a party (as such, the “Disclosing Party”) or any of its Affiliates that is disclosed by or on behalf of the Disclosing Party to the other party (as such, the “Receiving Party”), any of its Affiliates or any of its or their respective directors, officers, employees, independent contractors, accountants, attorneys, professional consultants and agents (such Affiliates and persons, “Representatives”) in connection with this Agreement, any Proposal or the negotiation of any potential Proposal, (A) whether before, on or after the Effective Date, (B) whether tangible or intangible, (C) whether written, electronic, oral, visual (e.g., obtained by observation at a site visit) or in any other form or medium and (D) whether or not marked with a legend such as “Confidential” or “Proprietary.” For the avoidance of doubt, the term Confidential Information shall be construed as “the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.” Notwithstanding the foregoing, Client’s Confidential Information shall include Client’s Proprietary IP, all Client Inventions, and the data and information allocated to Client under Section 9.4 (Ownership of Data), and Client shall be deemed the Disclosing Party thereof for purposes of this Agreement. Likewise, Cambrex’s Confidential Information shall include Cambrex’s Proprietary IP, all Cambrex Inventions, all Cambrex standard operating procedures, and all pricing under Proposals, and Cambrex shall be deemed the Disclosing Party thereof for purposes of this Agreement.

(ii)    Inclusions. Confidential Information includes (A) any copies of Confidential Information, (B) those portions of any summaries and other analyses prepared by or for the Receiving Party or its Representatives, to the extent containing, based upon or derived from other Confidential Information, and (C) the existence and terms of this Agreement.

(iii)    Exclusions. Confidential Information excludes information that:

(A)    as documented by business records, is already known by the Receiving Party or any of its Representatives at the time of its receipt, other than through a prior disclosure by the Disclosing Party or by a Third Party bound to the Disclosing Party by an obligation of confidentiality with respect to such information;

(B)    is at the time of disclosure or thereafter becomes available to the public or otherwise part of the public domain without breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party or any of its Representatives;

(C)    is subsequently disclosed to the Receiving Party or any of its Representatives without any duty of confidentiality by a Third Party who has the right to make such disclosure and who is not bound to the Disclosing Party by an obligation of confidentiality with respect to such information; or

(D)    is developed by or for the Receiving Party or any of its Representatives independently of Confidential Information or other information received from the Disclosing Party, to the extent such independent development is properly documented by the Receiving Party or such Representative.

For the avoidance of doubt, Confidential Information shall not be deemed to be in the public domain or in the prior possession of a person where it is merely embraced by or contained in more general information that is in the public domain or in such person’s possession.

(b)    Non-Disclosure and Non-Use. Each Receiving Party shall use Confidential Information only for performing its obligations and exercising its rights as contemplated by this Agreement or the applicable Proposal, and shall not disclose such Confidential Information to any Third Party or use such Confidential Information for any other purpose, except as otherwise permitted herein or with the prior consent of the Disclosing Party. The disclosure of Confidential Information by the Disclosing Party does not, in itself, grant or imply any right or license to use or practice any Intellectual Property of the Disclosing Party; it being agreed that the parties only grant such rights or licenses as expressly set forth in this Agreement.

(c)    Permitted Recipients. Each Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to those of its Representatives who (i) have a need to know such information in connection with the Receiving Party performance of its obligations and the exercise of its rights under this Agreement, (ii) have been advised of the Receiving Party’s obligations under this ARTICLE 8 (Confidentiality), and (iii) are bound to the Receiving Party by obligations of confidentiality and non-use at least as stringent as those contained in this ARTICLE 8 (Confidentiality). Each Receiving Party shall be responsible for any breach of this ARTICLE 8 (Confidentiality) caused by its
86274635_42


Representatives, unless such Representative has entered into a confidentiality agreement directly with the Disclosing Party with respect to the Confidential Information covered by this ARTICLE 8 (Confidentiality).

(d)    Standard of Care. Each Receiving Party shall (i) protect Confidential Information with the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential information, but no less than a reasonable degree of care, and (ii) not remove or obscure any copyright or trademark notice, proprietary legend, indication of confidentiality or other restrictive notation on any Confidential Information.

(e)    Permitted Disclosure. Nothing herein shall be interpreted to prohibit Client from publishing the results of its studies in accordance with industry practices, so long as it obtains Cambrex’s prior written consent before disclosing Cambrex’s Confidential Information. In addition, nothing herein shall prohibit a Receiving Party hereto from disclosing the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to governmental or other regulatory agencies to the extent reasonably necessary to obtain patents for its patentable Intellectual Property or to gain approval to conduct clinical trials or to market Product, so long as it obtains the Disclosing Party’s prior written consent before disclosing the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.

(d)    Required Disclosure. Each Receiving Party and its Representatives may disclose such Confidential Information as is required to be disclosed by law, regulation, court order or other legal process or by the rules of any public exchange on which the securities of such party are listed, provided that (i) to the extent legally permissible and reasonably practicable, notice is promptly delivered to the Disclosing Party in order to provide an opportunity for Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or other similar order with respect to such Confidential Information, (ii) the Receiving Party or its Representative, as applicable, reasonably cooperates with the Disclosing Party in any such efforts, at the Disclosing Party’s request and expense, and (iii) the Receiving Party or its Representative, as applicable, thereafter discloses only the minimum information required to be disclosed in order to comply with the request, whether or not a protective order or other similar order is obtained by the Disclosing Party.

(e)    Return of Information. Upon expiration or termination of this Agreement, each Receiving Party shall immediately cease using all Confidential Information (except as set forth in Section 9.3(b) (To Client) or any other provision herein granting Client a right to use Cambrex’s Confidential Information, which grant expressly survives the expiration or termination of this Agreement). As directed by the Disclosing Party in writing, the Receiving Party shall (to the extent legally permissible) promptly return to the Disclosing Party or, at the Receiving Party’s election, destroy all Confidential Information in its possession (and upon a separate written request by the Disclosing Party, shall confirm such destruction). Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) each Receiving Party and its Representatives may retain a single copy of Confidential Information in the secure files of its legal counsel or executive management for the purposes of proving what was disclosed and complying with document retention policies, (ii) each Receiving Party is not required to return or destroy any Confidential Information if doing so would violate (or result in the violation of) any Applicable Law, (iii) each Receiving Party shall not be required to expunge any minutes or written consents of its board of directors (or equivalent governance body) or laboratory notebooks, and (iv) to the extent that a Receiving Party’s computer back-up or archiving procedures create copies of Confidential Information, the Receiving Party may retain such copies for the period it normally archives backed-up computer records, so long as such copies are not readily accessible and are not used or consulted for any purpose other than disaster recovery or in connection with the circumstances contemplated by Section 8.1(f) (Required Disclosure) (and then subject to the procedures set forth in such Section 8.1(f) (Required Disclosure)). Any Confidential Information retained pursuant to the foregoing sentence shall remain subject to this ARTICLE 8 (Confidentiality) until the earliest of (A) its destruction, (B) the date that it is no longer deemed Confidential Information based on Section 8.1(a)(iii) (Exclusions), and (C) the end of the period set forth in Section 8.1(h) (Survival).

(h)    Survival. The foregoing obligations shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for a period of [***] thereafter.

8.2.    Publicity. Neither party will use the other party’s name, logos or marks in any public context, on labeling or in advertising, or make any press release or other public disclosure regarding this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, including identifying the other party as a business partner or in connection with any scholarly or industry publications or presentations, without the other party’s express prior written consent, subject to Section 8.1(f) (Required Disclosure). Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall prohibit Client from identifying Cambrex as the manufacturer of the Products in accordance with regulatory requirements, subject to Section 8.1(f) (Required Disclosure).

ARTICLE 10
DISPUTE RESOLUTION

10.1.    Escalation. The parties shall try to resolve any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement other than a dispute determined in accordance with Schedule A (a “Dispute”) amicably between themselves before resorting to any formal dispute resolution proceeding. To this end, either party may send a notice of Dispute to the other. Within ten (10) business days following the date of the Dispute notice, each party shall appoint a single, senior representative with the full power and authority to resolve the Dispute (a “Facilitator”). The Facilitators shall meet and discuss as necessary to try to resolve the Dispute as quickly as practicable. If a Dispute relates exclusively to technical aspects of the Services, the Facilitators shall be competent to address the technical nature of the issues in question, and may elect to engage an independent laboratory or expert to assist them in their discussions; however, the input of such laboratory or expert shall not be binding on either party. If a party fails to timely appoint a Facilitator or if, despite their reasonable efforts, the Facilitators have not resolved a Dispute within one (1) month from the date of the Dispute notice, either party may resort to a court of competent jurisdiction, subject to Section 10.3 (Jurisdiction), or any other method of binding dispute resolution on which the parties may agree.

10.2    Governing Law. This Agreement shall be construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New Jersey and the laws of the United States applicable therein, without regard to any conflicts of law principles. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement.

10.3.    Jurisdiction. The parties irrevocably agree that the state and federal courts sitting in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, State of New York shall have exclusive jurisdiction to deal with any Dispute and that venue is proper in such courts. Each party hereby expressly consents and submits to the personal jurisdiction of such courts, waives any objection to the laying of venue in such courts, and waives any claim that such courts constitute an inconvenient forum. Each party, to the extent permitted by law, knowingly, voluntarily and intentionally waives its right to a trial by jury in any Dispute, regardless of the legal theory of the claims asserted in such Dispute. All documents and proceedings in connection with any Dispute shall be in the English language.

ARTICLE 11
MISCELLANEOUS

11.1    Further Assurances. The parties agree to execute, acknowledge and deliver such further instruments and to take all such other incidental acts as may be reasonably necessary or appropriate to carry out the purpose and intent of this Agreement.

11.2.    Interruption in Performance.

(a)    Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable for the failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement if such failure is occasioned by a cause or contingency beyond such party's reasonable control, including strikes or other labor disturbances, lockouts, riots, quarantines, communicable disease outbreaks, wars, acts of terrorism, fires, floods, storms, interruption of or delay in transportation, lack of or inability to obtain fuel, power, materials or components, or compliance with any order or regulation of any Authority acting within color of right. A party claiming a right to excused performance under this Section 11.2(a) (Force Majeure) shall promptly notify the other party in writing of the extent of its inability to perform and the nature of the force majeure event, shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects of the force majeure event, and shall keep the other party reasonably updated on its progress in mitigating the effects of such force majeure event. Such excuse shall continue as long as the force majeure event continues. Upon cessation of such force majeure event, the affected party shall promptly resume performance under this Agreement as soon as it is commercially reasonable for the
86274635_42


party to do so. Neither party shall be entitled to rely on a force majeure event to relieve it from an obligation to pay money (including any interest for delayed payment) that would otherwise be due and payable under this Agreement.

(b)    COVID-19. In order to maintain a safe workplace, Cambrex has and will continue to implement federal, state and local mandates and recommendations for social distancing, personal protection and disinfecting related to the COVID-19 pandemic ongoing as of the Effective Date (the “COVID-19 Pandemic”), which may negatively impact productivity and timelines. Further, it is possible that Components may be delayed or limited in supply as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic; however, as of the Effective Date, Cambrex has no knowledge that any Components are subject to any such delay. Cambrex shall not have any liability for any delays or failure to meet prescribed timelines as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic to the extent Cambrex has used all commercially reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of the COVID-19 Pandemic and such circumstances. Cambrex shall immediately notify Client if, by reason of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Cambrex is unable to meet any deadline or time for performance specified in a Proposal or this Agreement, and will keep Client regularly informed as to its progress in overcoming or mitigating any such effect.

11.3.    Notices. Any notice or other communication required or permitted by this Agreement shall be in writing and deemed given to the other party (a) upon receipt if delivered personally, (b) upon receipt or refusal if sent by reputable overnight courier service or registered/certified mail with tracking capability, postage prepaid, or (c) on the next business day if sent by email with electronic verification of delivery, in each case to the mailing address or email address set forth below (or to such other contact information provided to the other party in accordance with the terms of this Section 11.3 (Notices)):

11.7.    Construction.
(a)    Independent Contractors. The parties are independent contractors to one another and this Agreement shall not be construed to create between Cambrex and Client any other relationship such as, by way of example only, that of employer-employee, principal-agent, joint-venturers, partners or any similar relationship, the existence of which is expressly denied by the parties. Neither party shall have the power or authority to bind the other party or to assume or create any obligation, express or implied, on the other party’s behalf or in the other party’s name, nor will it represent to any person or entity that it has such power or authority.

(c)    Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, such determination shall not impair or affect the validity, legality or enforceability of the remaining provisions hereof, and each provision is hereby declared to be separate, severable and distinct.

SCHEDULE A

NON-CONFORMING PRODUCT PROCEDURES

The terms of this Schedule A shall apply in respect of Clinical Manufacturing Services:

1. Product Claims.

(a) Undelivered Non-Conforming Product.

(i) If Cambrex determines at any time during the performance of the Clinical Manufacturing Services (including in the performance of its obligations under Section 2.4(b)(iii) (Quality Control)), but prior to its delivery of an applicable Batch to Client, that a Batch (or any portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product, then Cambrex shall give Client written notice thereof, including a statement as to the nature of the non-conformity and whether (and if not, why) Cambrex believes that such non-conformity was not caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault, and a sample of the Non-Conforming Product (together, a “Cambrex Deficiency Notice”).

(ii) If Client disagrees with or desires to obtain additional information with respect to a Cambrex Deficiency Notice (i.e., with respect to whether the non-conformity is caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault), Client shall give Cambrex written notice thereof within thirty (30) days after receiving the Cambrex Deficiency Notice. If, within thirty (30) days after Cambrex’s receipt of such notice, Cambrex and Client fail to agree as to whether Cambrex’s Fault was the primary cause of the non-conformity, the parties shall mutually select an independent laboratory or qualified person, as appropriate, to evaluate the cause of such non-conformity. The evaluation shall be binding on the parties. If the evaluation confirms that the non-conformity in the subject Batch (or portion thereof) was caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault, then (i) Cambrex shall bear the cost of the evaluation, and (ii) the subject Batch (or portion thereof) shall be deemed Non-Conforming Product and the non-conformity shall be deemed caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault for purposes of clause (c) below. If the evaluation determines that the non-conformity in the subject Batch (or portion thereof) was not caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault (or if Client does not timely disagree with a Cambrex Deficiency Notice’s assertion that Non-Conforming Product was not caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault), then (x) Client shall bear the cost of the evaluation, if applicable, and (y) the subject Batch (or portion thereof) shall not be deemed Non-Conforming Product caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault for purposes of clause (c) below.

(b) Delivered Non-Conforming Product.

(i) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Schedule A (including Sections 1(c), 2 and 4), Client has the right to reject any portion of any shipment of Clinical Stage Product that it alleges to be Non-Conforming Product without invalidating any remainder of such shipment. Upon receipt of each Product shipment under this Agreement, Client shall visually inspect each Batch and perform any testing that the applicable Proposal or Quality Agreement requires Client to perform. Client shall give Cambrex written notice of any claim that a Batch (or portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product, including a statement as to the nature of the non-conformity and
86274635_42


whether (and if so, why) Client believes that such non-conformity was caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault, and a sample of the allegedly Non-Conforming Product (together, a “Client Deficiency Notice”) within thirty (30) days after Client’s receipt of such Batch or, in the case of a Latent Defect, within fifteen (15) days after Client’s discovery of the Latent Defect, but in no event after the expiration date of the Batch in question. If Client fails to timely provide Cambrex with a Client Deficiency Notice, the Batch shall be deemed accepted by Client as of the 30th day after delivery or 15th day after discovery, as applicable.

(ii) If Cambrex disagrees with a Client Deficiency Notice (i.e., with respect to whether the subject Batch (or portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product or whether the non-conformity is caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault), Cambrex shall give Client written notice of such disagreement within thirty (30) days after receiving the Client Deficiency Notice. If, within thirty (30) days after Client’s receipt of Cambrex’s disagreement notice, Client and Cambrex fail to agree as to whether the subject Batch (or portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product and/or whether the non-conformity was caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault, as applicable, the parties shall mutually select an independent laboratory or qualified person, as appropriate, to evaluate whether the subject Batch (or portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product and/or the cause of such non-conformity, as applicable. The evaluation shall be binding on the parties. If Client has asserted in the Client Deficiency Notice that a Batch (or a portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault and the evaluation confirms that the subject Batch (or portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product and that the non-conformity was caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault (or if Cambrex does not timely disagree with a Client Deficiency Notice), then (i) the subject Batch (or portion thereof) shall be deemed properly rejected under this Section 1(b) of Schedule A, (ii) Cambrex shall bear the cost of the evaluation, as applicable, and (iii) the subject Batch (or portion thereof) shall be deemed Non-Conforming Product and the non-conformity shall be deemed caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault for purposes of clause (c). If Client has asserted in the Client Deficiency Notice that a Batch (or a portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault and the evaluation determines that the subject Batch (or portion thereof) is Non-Conforming Product but that such non-conformity is not caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault, then the subject Batch (or portion thereof) shall be deemed Non-Conforming Product but not caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault for purposes of clause (c). If the evaluation determines that the subject Batch (or portion thereof) is not Non-Conforming Product, then (A) the subject Batch (or portion thereof) shall be deemed accepted by Client as of the 45th day after delivery or discovery, as applicable, and (B) Client shall bear the cost of the evaluation.

(c) Remedies. In respect of any Batch (or any portion thereof) agreed or determined to be Non-Conforming Product caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault under either Section 1(a) or 1(b) of this Schedule A, Cambrex will either (i) to the extent permitted by cGMPs and reasonably approved by Client, rework or reprocess the subject Batch (or portion thereof) at Cambrex’s cost, and, where Section 1(b)(ii) of this Schedule A applies, pay for the return shipping of the subject Batch (or portion thereof) to the Facility, or (ii) to the extent such reworking or reprocessing is not permitted by cGMPs or not approved by Client (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), replace the subject Batch (or portion thereof) at Cambrex’s cost, so long as Client provides the necessary Client-Supplied Materials at Cambrex’s cost (subject, for the avoidance of doubt, to Section 7.1(b) (API)). In respect of any Batch (or any portion thereof) agreed or determined either not to be Non-Conforming Product or to be Non-Conforming Product but not caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault under either Section 1(a) or 1(b) of this Schedule A, Client will be responsible for the cost of such Batch (or portion thereof).

2. Disposition of Product. Client shall not use or permit the use of any Clinical Stage Product that does not, or that Client has reason to believe does not, meet the Specifications or comply with Applicable Law. Client shall not, without Cambrex’s prior written consent, destroy or otherwise dispose of any Non-Conforming Products in relation to which it intends to assert a claim against Cambrex. Cambrex shall bear the cost of destroying any Batch (or any portion thereof) agreed or determined to be Non-Conforming Product caused primarily by Cambrex’s Fault under either Section 1(a)(ii) or 1(b)(ii) of this Schedule A. In all other circumstances, Client shall bear the cost of such destruction.

3. Limitations. For the avoidance of doubt, Cambrex shall have no obligation for Clinical Stage Product if any deficiencies in, or other liabilities associated with, such Clinical Stage Product (a) are caused by incorrect, unlawful or deficient Specifications (including artwork and labeling), by the safety, efficacy or marketability of API or Clinical Stage Product, or by any distribution of the Clinical Stage Product, in each case to the extent not resulting from Cambrex’s Fault, (b) result from any defect in Client-Supplied Materials that Cambrex could not reasonably discover by visual inspection or testing as required under Section 2.4(a)(i) (Client-Supplied Materials), (c) are caused by actions of Third Parties occurring after Clinical Stage Product is tendered for delivery by Cambrex pursuant to Section 2.6(a) (Risk of Loss; Title), or (d) are caused by any breach of Client’s obligations, representations, warranties or covenants under this Agreement.

4. Sole Remedy. In addition to the remedies set forth in Section 2.4(d) (Stock Recovery & Recalls) and indemnification obligations and rights set forth in Section 7.2(a) (By Cambrex), the remedies described in this Schedule A shall be Cambrex’s sole liability and Client’s sole remedy for Non-Conforming Product.

SCHEDULE F
BINDING TERM SHEET FOR
COMMERCIAL MANUFACTURING SERVICES AGREEMENT

The Commercial Manufacturing Services Agreement will reflect the terms and conditions described below, as well as other terms and conditions standard and customary for these types of agreements as the parties may agree in connection with the negotiation of the Commercial Manufacturing Services Agreement. Capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined in this Binding Term Sheet have the meanings ascribed to them in the Development and Clinical Master Services Agreement to which this Binding Term Sheet is attached (the “DCMSA”). For the avoidance of doubt, while the provisions of this Binding Term Sheet are intended to be binding as it relates to the parties’ negotiation of a Commercial Manufacturing Services Agreement, neither party shall have any obligation to purchase or supply Product for commercial sale unless and until a Commercial Manufacturing Services Agreement has been executed.

Materials: Client will provide Cambrex with conforming API and certificates of analysis at Client’s cost, DDP         (Incoterms 2020) the Facility. Cambrex will procure and purchase on behalf of Client, and test in accordance with the Quality Agreement entered into by the parties, all Components required to supply the quantities of Product specified for delivery during the first [***] of each Rolling Forecast (as defined below). The cost of Components will be included in the price of Product and not separately charged to Client; provided, that Client will be responsible for the costs of (i) Product-specific consumables and standards necessary for analytical testing of Product plus a [***] administrative fee thereon, and (ii) Product-Specific Components that become obsolete or expire while in Cambrex’s stock.

Equipment: The Commercial Manufacturing Services Agreement will reflect the terms set out in Section 2.4(a)(iii) (Equipment) and Schedule D of the DCMSA.

Forecast: On a [***] basis, Client will deliver to Cambrex a rolling forecast of the quantities of Product     which Client reasonably anticipates it will order during the subsequent [***] (the “Rolling Forecast”). For each Rolling Forecast, the amounts specified for delivery during the first [***] will be binding on Client (the “Commitment”).

Capacity: Cambrex will guarantee that it will at all times maintain manufacturing, supply and testing capacity necessary to timely satisfy any purchase orders for Product submitted by Client for quantities of Product equal to at least [***] of the most recent Rolling Forecast quantities. Cambrex shall not at any time enter into any agreement or other arrangement with any Third Party that could reasonably be expected to render Cambrex unable to (y) meet Client’s demand for the quantities of Product set forth in the most recent Rolling Forecast or (z) otherwise perform the Services. Cambrex shall promptly notify Client by telephone (confirmed by written notice) if Cambrex at any time anticipates that it may not have such capacity necessary to timely satisfy purchase orders submitted by Client for [***] of the most recent Rolling Forecast, and upon such notice, the parties will promptly meet, either in person or by teleconference, to discuss how to thereafter supply Client’s Product requirements in a timely manner.

Orders:        Client will submit purchase orders for Product volumes reflected in the Commitment. Client may submit purchase orders for additional Product volumes subject to an agreed lead time. Cambrex must, as a binding obligation of Cambrex, accept all properly submitted purchase orders for Product volumes up to [***] of the Rolling Forecast quantities and will use commercially best efforts to accept and fulfill all properly submitted purchase orders for Product volumes in excess of [***] of the Rolling Forecast quantities. Cambrex will confirm each purchase order in a signed writing delivered to Client within five (5) business days of receipt. If Cambrex is unable to meet the delivery date requested by Client in its purchase order, Cambrex shall notify Client of such in Cambrex’s confirmation writing and provide Client an alternative delivery date, which such alternative delivery date will not be more than [***] earlier or later than the requested delivery date. If Client does not submit purchase orders for Commitment volumes, it will nonetheless pay for unordered quantities on a take-or-pay basis.

Price: Client shall pay the per-unit prices for the commercial supply of Product (the “Prices”) (which Prices include the cost of all Components and shall constitute Client’s sole liability for the cost of General-Supply Components) and provision of other Services to be provided by Cambrex under the
86274635_42


Commercial Manufacturing Services Agreement, as set forth in Attachment 1 to this Schedule F, and subject only to the adjustments described in this paragraph or as the parties may otherwise agree in a signed writing. The Prices (except as they relate to the cost of Components) will be subject to annual review and negotiation by the parties to address inflation or deflation, which adjustment shall be calculated based on changes to the United States Producers Price Index for Pharmaceutical Preparations (PPI), published by the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics published at the end of the calendar year prior to the calendar year in which such Price adjustment is considered. Additionally, the Prices will be subject to adjustments negotiated by the parties in good faith in the event and to the extent of material changes in the assumptions underlying the Prices as a result of the development work performed under the DCMSA. For the avoidance of doubt, any change to the preliminary Specifications provided by Client constitute a “material change” for purposes of the foregoing sentence. Finally, the Prices will be subject to adjustments in the event and to the extent of increases and decreases in the actual cost of Components by at least [***] above or below, respectively, the costs on which the then-current Price is based; it being understood that Cambrex will provide reasonable supporting documentation of such increases or decreases.

Invoicing: Cambrex will invoice for Product at the time of quality release or transfer into storage, as applicable. The Commercial Manufacturing Services Agreement will reflect the payment terms and remedies set out in Section 3.3 (Payment Terms) of the DCMSA, revised as appropriate for the context of commercial supply.

Storage: At Client’s request, Cambrex will store Product at the Facility for up to [***] following its release by Cambrex’s quality group free of charge. If Client does not take delivery of Product within such period, (i) Client shall pay Cambrex a monthly storage fee in respect of the period commencing after such period at the rate set forth in Schedule G of the DCMSA or, if not so set forth therein, at Cambrex’s then-current standard rate, and (ii) upon two (2) weeks’ written notice to Client, Cambrex shall have the option to ship to Client, at Client’s cost, (A) any Product that is or contains a controlled substance or that has been held by Cambrex in storage longer than [***] and (B) any Product-Specific Components or API that have been held by Cambrex in inventory longer than [***] and that are not reasonably expected to be needed for Cambrex to manufacture Product based on Client’s then-current Rolling Forecast.
