1. The following new Sections 1.3 (Exclusivity) and 1.4 (Additional Site) are added immediately following Section 1.2 (Scope) in the Agreement:


“1.3 Exclusivity. Starting on the Amendment Effective Date and expiring not less than three (3) years after the Amendment Effective Date (“Exclusivity Period”), Customer grants to Benchmark the exclusive right to manufacture the Exclusive Products. Customer shall not place Orders for the manufacture of the Exclusive Products with any third party, and Customer shall not develop Customer’s own manufacturing of the Exclusive Products during the Exclusivity Period. The Parties may agree to allow another Benchmark Affiliate to provide the manufacturing services for the Exclusive Products during the Exclusivity Period.”

Nevertheless, Customer may apply any Benchmark-issued credit memo against any outstanding Benchmark invoices to Customer. This payment term shall likewise apply to any invoices or other amounts owed from Benchmark to Customer. If any invoice remains unpaid after the due date thereof, Customer will be subject to a charge equal to the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate allowed by law, and Benchmark may place a credit hold on Customer’s account for pending and future shipments.”


4. The following new Section 6.4 (Production Cost) is added immediately following Section 6.3 (Customer’s Financial Status) in the Agreement:
