14.2 Relationship of the Parties. It is expressly agreed that MacroGenics, on the one hand, and Incyte, on the other hand, are independent contractors and that the relationship between the two Parties will not constitute a partnership, joint venture or agency. Neither MacroGenics nor Incyte will have the authority to make any statements, representations or commitments of any kind, or to take any action which will be binding on the other, without the prior written consent of the other Party to do so. All individuals employed by a Party will be employees of that Party and not of the other Party and all costs and obligations incurred by reason of such employment will be for the account and expense of such Party will be null, void and of no legal effect.
14.3 Insurance. Section 14.4 of the Collaboration Agreement will govern the insurance obligations of each Party under this Agreement.
14.4 Force Majeure. Both Parties will be excused from the performance of their obligations under this Agreement to the extent that such performance is prevented by Force Majeure and the nonperforming Party promptly provides notice of such Force Majeure circumstances to the other Party. Such excuse will be continued so long as the condition constituting Force Majeure continues and the nonperforming Party takes reasonable efforts to remove the condition. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Party will not be excused from making payments owed
hereunder because of a Force Majeure affecting such Party. If a Force Majeure persists [***], then the Parties will discuss in good faith the modification of the Parties’ obligations under this Agreement
in order to mitigate the delays caused by such Force Majeure. In the event a Party is prevented from performing its obligations under this Agreement due to Force Majeure [***] according to this Section 14.4 the other Party will have the right to terminate this Agreement upon [***] notice after the expiration of such period. A termination under this Section 14.4 by either Party will be treated as a termination under Section 13.2(b) above and the corresponding provisions for termination under Section 13.2(b) will apply except to the extent the affected Party is prevented from performing due to the Force Majeure.
14.5 Notices. All notices and other communications given or made pursuant hereto will be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given on the date delivered, if delivered personally, or on the next Business Day after being sent by reputable overnight courier (with delivery tracking provided, signature required and delivery prepaid), in each case, to the Parties at the following addresses, or on the date sent and confirmed by electronic transmission to the fax number specified below (or at such other address or fax number for a Party as will be specified by notice given in accordance with this Section 14.5):
If to Incyte:
If to MacroGenics:
14.6 Collaboration Agreement; Entire Agreement; Amendments.
a. The Collaboration Agreement shall govern the provisions of this Agreement and the Parties’ rights and obligations hereunder except to the extent a provision of this Agreement amends, modifies or is contrary to a specific provision of the Collaboration Agreement. In particular, the provisions of this Agreement shall take precedent over the provisions of Section 14.5 and Article 7 (Manufacturing) of the Collaboration Agreement. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the rights and obligations of the
Parties to receive and to pay amounts under Article 8 (Consideration) of the Collaboration Agreement shall remain unaffected by this Agreement
b. Subject to Section 14.6(a), this Agreement, including the Exhibits hereto, sets forth the complete, final and exclusive agreement and all the covenants, promises, agreements, warranties, representations, conditions and understandings between the Parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and with respect to the. Manufacture and supply of Licensed Compound Drug Substance by MacroGenics to Incyte. No subsequent alteration, amendment, change or addition to this Agreement will be binding upon the Parties unless reduced to writing and signed by an authorized officer of each Party. In the event of any inconsistency between the body of this Agreement and either any Exhibits to this Agreement or any subsequent agreements ancillary to this Agreement, unless otherwise expressly stated to the contrary in such Exhibit or ancillary agreement, the terms contained in this Agreement will control.
c. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, the Clinical Supply Agreement will, until its expiration or termination in accordance with the terms set forth therein, remain in effect and continue to obligate the Parties with respect to

ii. MacroGenics’ right to purchase Licensed Compound Drug Bulk Drug Substance and Licensed Compound Drug Product from Incyte; and
iii. the conduct of the CMC Development Plan set forth under the Clinical Supply Agreement as updated by the Parties;
14.7 Waiver and Non-Exclusion of Remedies. Any term or condition of this Agreement may be waived at any time by the Party that is entitled to the benefit thereof, but no such waiver will be effective unless set forth in a written instrument duly executed by or on behalf of the Party waiving such term or condition. The waiver by either Party of any right hereunder or of the failure to perform or of a breach by the other Party will not be deemed a waiver of any other right hereunder or of any other breach or failure by such other Party whether of a similar nature or otherwise. The rights and remedies provided herein are cumulative and do not exclude any other right or remedy provided by Applicable Law or otherwise available except as expressly set forth herein.
14.8 Severability. If any one or more of the provisions of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction from which no appeal can be or is timely taken, the provision will be considered severed from this Agreement and will not serve to invalidate any remaining provisions hereof. The Parties will make good faith efforts to replace any such invalidated or unenforceable provision with a valid and enforceable one such that the objectives contemplated by the Parties when entering this Agreement may be realized.
14.9 Governing Law/Jurisdiction. This Agreement and all disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement or any breach hereof will be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any choice of law principles that would require the application of the laws of a different state.
14.10 Dispute Resolution.
a. If the Parties fail to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy of whatever nature arising out of or relating to this Agreement, such claim, dispute or controversy will be resolved in
accordance with the dispute resolution provisions set forth in Article 13 of the Collaboration Agreement.
b. Notwithstanding the above, in the event of a dispute between the Parties with respect to a Batch Failure, the Parties will meet to discuss and agree upon the feasibility of the release of further Batches. Thereafter, if the Parties still disagree as to whether further Batches can be released, the Parties’ most senior quality assurance officer, or their respective designated representatives, will confer to review samples and/or batch records, as appropriate. If the disagreement is not resolved, then samples, batch records and other data relating to the batch in dispute will promptly be submitted for testing and evaluation to an independent Third Party (including a testing laboratory qualified to perform such testing using validated methods) approved in writing by both Parties. The cost of testing and evaluation by the Third Party will be borne (x) by MacroGenics if the Products in question are ultimately found to fail to meet the Product Specification as a result of MacroGenics’ failure to adhere to the applicable Manufacturing Process and/or Incyte’s instructions, or
(y) by Incyte if MacroGenics is found to have adhered to the applicable Manufacturing Process and, if applicable, Incyte’s instructions.
14.11 Counterparts/Signatures. This Agreement may be executed in two (2) or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.
