In compensation for the Services:



The Company will be charged for such Services at cost (without mark-up or profit for NantWorks, but including reasonable allocations of employee benefits, facilities and other direct and fairly allocated indirect costs that relate to the employees providing the Services consistent with NantWorks’ provision of such Services for its other portfolio companies) based whenever possible on identification of specific costs as identifiable within NantWorks’ books and records (e.g., specific salaries and other compensation for the individuals providing Services) and where such specific identification is not possible, based upon good faith allocations determined by analysis performed by the office of the NantWorks CFO made in a manner consistent with NantWorks’ provision of such Services for its other portfolio companies.



Such allocations will be based on reasonable estimates of percentages of NantWorks’ employees’ time or specific man hours, square footage percentages of shared facilities and infrastructure costs dedicated to Company activities, and specific reimbursement for services performed by third parties for NantWorks for the direct benefit of the Company.



The Company shall reimburse NantWorks for all reasonable out-of-pocket costs incurred by NantWorks in performing the services on behalf of the Company.
