The consideration to be paid by the Company to the Hospital for the rights granted to the Company pursuant to this Agreement shall consist of the payments to be made in accordance with this Section 5.

In addition to any other payment to be made by the Company to the Hospital pursuant to this Agreement, the Company shall make the Milestone Payment [***] on any outstanding amount under the Milestone Payment calculated from the Effective Date until payment thereof.

If the Company exercises its right under this Section 5.4.1, the Final Payment to be paid by the Company shall be calculated as DKK 20,000,000 (say Danish Kroner twenty million 0/00) minus the aggregate Royalty Payments that have already been paid to the Hospital prior to the Companys exercise of its right under this Section 5.4.1.
In the event that the Company makes the Final Payment pursuant to the above, the Hospital shall no longer be entitled to request the payment of any consideration pursuant to this Agreement, and all of the Companys obligations towards the Hospital pursuant to Sections 3.1, 5, and 6 shall automatically terminate.
PATENT PROSECUTION AND ENFORCEMENT
The Company shall use its best reasonable efforts to file all relevant patent applications in respect of the Intellectual Property Rights in i) all Key Countries and in ii) such other countries and territories where it would reasonably be deemed relevant and commercially viable to do so.

The Company shall not abandon any patent application or patent included in or derived from the Intellectual Property Rights, including any of the Patent Applications, in any Key Country without the prior written consent of the Hospital, unless such patent or patent application does not contain any Valid Claim, or unless the Company reasonably demonstrates that the patent or patent application will be revoked or held unenforceable or invalid, or will be disallowed. Consent from the Hospital shall not be unreasonably withheld.
At the request of the Company after the Execution Date, the Hospital shall provide the Company with access to any files and documents which are directly related to the Intellectual Property Rights and in the possession of the Hospital or, if reasonably possible, in the possession of the Hospitals external patent advisors. The Company shall pay any direct costs related to the above mentioned access.
