(2) Once the Facilities have utilized 100MW of cryptocurrency mining load, in the aggregate, Terawulf will issue awards with respect to shares of common stock of Terawulf valued at $2,500,000 to certain designated employees of Beowulf E&D in accordance with Terawulf’s then effective omnibus incentive plan, and thereafter, for every incremental 100MW of cryptocurrency mining load deployed by the Facilities, in the aggregate, Terawulf will issue additional awards with respect to shares of common stock of Terawulf valued at $2,500,000 to certain designated employees of Beowulf E&D in accordance with Terawulf’s then effective omnibus incentive plan.
c. Additional Services. During the Term of this Agreement, if reasonably requested by Terawulf from time to time, Beowulf E&D shall provide or make available, directly or through one or more of its Affiliates, the following services to Terawulf that, in each case, cannot be performed in the ordinary course of Terawulf’s business (collectively, the “Additional Services”): (i) arranging for, negotiating the terms of, or otherwise facilitating any financings or re-financings with respect to any of the Facilities, (ii) compliance with a material change in applicable laws, (iii) administering insurance claims, (iv) management of any litigation, arbitration, or material dispute, (v) any reporting, budgeting or other obligations whose frequency is greater than monthly (vi) renegotiation, restructure, extension or replacement of any material project agreements, (vii) support for any transaction involving the sales or other dispositions of the any Facilities (vii) management of future expansions, (ix) project support for new system implementations, (x) administrating environmental matters arising from remediation activities and new regulations, (xi) provision of finance, legal, environmental and operations due diligence for mergers and acquisitions, (xii) Sarbanes Oxley compliance, (xiii) support for any tax audits and (xiv) any other services requested by Terawulf that go beyond the scope of work for the Services.

d. Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses.
(1) Terawulf shall provide Beowulf E&D reimbursement for the Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses incurred in the performance of Beowulf E&D’s obligations under this Agreement, but only to the extent the same are reasonable, properly documented, incurred in accordance with this Agreement.
(2) Reimbursement by Terawulf of Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses shall be prepaid monthly based on the advanced payment request submitted by Beowulf E&D to Terawulf by the fifteenth (15th) day of the month. Terawulf shall remit funds to Beowulf E&D for such advanced reimbursement (the “Advanced Reimbursement”) by the last business day of the month. The actual Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses for each month shall be determined by Beowulf E&D, and the difference between the Advanced Reimbursement for such month and the actual Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses for same will be fully reconciled by Beowulf E&D and invoiced to Terawulf by the fifteenth (15th) day of the following month. If the actual Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses for such month exceed Terawulf’s Advanced Reimbursement for same, Terawulf shall remit to Beowulf E&D payment of the difference by the last business day of the month in which the invoice is received. Conversely, if the actual Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses for such month are less than Terawulf’s advanced payment for same, such that an excess Advanced Reimbursement results, such excess Advanced Reimbursement shall be credited by Terawulf against the next month’s advanced payment request submitted by Beowulf E&D. Each invoice shall constitute a representation and warranty by the Beowulf E&D that the amounts shown thereon are reasonable and proper items of Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses incurred in performance of the Services that are then properly due and payable by Terawulf hereunder.
(3) On occasion Beowulf E&D may also request advances for emergencies and Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses that require expedited payment terms. Terawulf agrees to make advance payments (the “Advance”) to Beowulf E&D consistent with such procedures to which the Parties may from time to time mutually agree. In general, such procedure shall require (i) that Terawulf make Advances seven (7) days after receipt of Beowulf E&D’s written request therefor, (ii) that Terawulf shall not be required to Advance more than the amount reasonably necessary to meet the obligations, (iii) that by the fifteenth (15th) day of each month, Beowulf E&D shall provide Terawulf with a fully supported reconciliation of the previous month’s Advances to actual cash expenditures and incorporate such Advances and actual cash expenditures into the reconciliation process described in Section 4d(2) such that a single reconciliation incorporates (a) Advanced Reimbursements and (b) Advances and associated actual cash expenditures contemplated by this Section 4d(3). Any excess resulting from the positive difference between (a) the sum of Advances and Advanced Reimbursements and (b) the sum of actual cash expenditures and Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses shall be credited by Beowulf E&D against the next month’s request for Advance or Advanced Reimbursement. If the difference between (a) the sum of Advances and Advanced Reimbursements and (b) the sum of actual cash expenditures and Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses is negative, Terawulf shall remit to Beowulf E&D payment of the difference by the last business day of the month in which the invoice is received.
(4) “Equipment, Infrastructure and Operating Expenses” means costs and expenses incurred by Beowulf E&D solely in connection with the procurement and installation of equipment and infrastructure and the operation and maintenance of the Facilities and the other Services performed by it pursuant to this Agreement, including but not limited to the reasonable and properly documented: (i) salaries, wages and related employee benefits and costs (including taxes and contributions) and other compensation paid to Beowulf E&D’s employees and independent contractors, (ii) amounts payable to Subcontractors, (iii) utility expenses (including costs of water), (iv) insurance premiums, (v) fees for accounting, legal, other professional services, and other general and administrative expenses and (vi) all other expenditures relating to the construction, operation, repair and maintenance costs of the Facilities, including the costs of parts, equipment and infrastructure.
