WHEREAS, OPN and VTM previously entered into that certain Manufacturing Services Agreement for Subassembly, dated December 21, 2018 (the “Agreement”);

WHEREAS, OPN and VTM now desire to amend the Agreement, as described below, by entering into this Amendment.
NOW THEREFORE, it is agreed by the parties as follows:
1. Definitions. Capitalized terms used in this Amendment, but not otherwise defined herein, shall have the meanings assigned to such terms in the Agreement.
2. Covid Claim. VTM agrees that no amount shall be due in connection with the Covid Claim, nor due in 2020 for any other Covid-related costs or expenses VTM may incur or has incurred in connection with VTM’s performance of its services under the Agreement. [***].
3. [***] Production Line.
a. VTM and OPN hereby agree that VTM shall install and validate a [***] DSA production line (the “[***] Line”) at VTM’s facility located in Manchester, NH (the “Facility”). VTM shall take all such reasonable actions to modify and configure its cleanroom and space adjacent to the production [***] currently used for OPN at the Facility for such [***] Line installation. The detailed configuration, costs and planning for such [***] Line installation shall be set forth in writing in a separate agreement to be reasonably agreed to by the parties (the “Installation Plan”), which cost shall not exceed US$[***] and which shall note OPN shall have at least seven (7) days to respond and reply to

any inquiry or request from VTM related to such [***] Line Installation. VTM shall validate the [***] Line (by way of an approved performance qualification report (“PQ Report”)) as shall be set forth in writing in a separate agreement to be reasonably agreed to by the parties, which cost shall not exceed US$[***]. The parties shall use their respective commercially reasonable efforts to perform process validation work in compliance with the Installation Plan in order for the PQ Report to occur by [***]. Should the PQ Report not occur by [***] and if any delay is solely and directly caused by OPN’s actions or inactions contrary to the Installation Plan, OPN shall pay VTM a fee of US$[***] per week for each week of delay caused solely and directly by OPN’s violation of the Installation Plan.
b.

Should OPN fail to order the Minimum [***] Line Order in any month and should during such month the [***] Line be idle for at least [***] days during such a week in such month, OPN shall owe VTM US$[***] as an idle fee for each such week, which shall be due within [***] days of OPN’s receipt of an invoice from VTM for such fee.
c. At any time after the successful completion of the PQ Report or if the PQ Report is not successfully completed by [***], OPN shall have the right (at its sole discretion) to provide written notice to VTM that OPN requests the removal of the [***] Line (“Removal Notice”). Upon receipt of the Removal Notice, (i) the Minimum [***] Line Order and related obligations set forth in Section 3(b) shall cease [***] days from the date of such Removal Notice, and (ii) the parties shall work together in good faith to coordinate and arrange the timely decommissioning of the [***] Line (for which VTM shall only charge OPN for those reasonable costs and expenses actually incurred in connection with such decommission).
