Contract Amendment No. 7
Development and Supply Agreement
by and between
with its registered seat in Oakwood Village, OH, USA
-hereinafter referred to as "ViewRay"-
Siemens Healthcare GmbH
with its registered seat in Munich
-hereinafter referred to as "Siemens"-
-ViewRay and Siemens hereinafter referred to individually as "Party" or collectively as "Parties"-
Whereas, Siemens AG and ViewRay Incorporated have signed a Development and Supply Agreement on May 29, 2008 as amended by 6 Amendments (the "Development and Supply Agreement") according to which they have collaborated in the development of combining MR imaging and Gamma Radio Therapy.
Whereas, Siemens AG has transferred all its assets related to Healthcare to Siemens Healthcare GmbH and thus the Development and Supply Agreement has been transferred from Siemens AG to Siemens Healthcare GmbH as well. ViewRay has given its consent to such transfer.
Whereas, according to Annex 3 of the Appendix 2 (Supply Agreement) to the Development and Supply Agreements the Parties agreed to agree on the consent of the service agreement at a later point in time.
Whereas, the Parties are now interested in concluding the service agreement. The Parties are also interested in further describing the process for warranty returns according to Section 7.1 of Appendix 2 to the Development and Supply Agreement and the rights regarding the product software embedded in the COMPONENTS.
Now therefore, the Parties agree as follows:
Annex 3 of Appendix 2 shall be replaced by the Annex attached to this Amendment.
A reference to the OEM Supply Agreement in Annex 3 of Appendix 2 shall be a reference to Appendix 2 (Supply Agreement) of the Development and Supply Agreement.
The warranty returns process according Section 7.1 of Appendix 2 to the Development and Supply Agreement shall be as follows and thus Section 7.1 of Appendix 2 to the Development and Supply Agreement shall be replaced with the following:
7.1 SELLER assumes liability for defects of the COMPONENTS including the lack of assured characteristics as follows:
If BUYER detects a defect, BUYER shall notify SELLER in writing without unreasonable delay, send back the defective COMPONENT to SELLER at his own costs and order a new COMPONENT. Upon receipt of the COMPONENT, SELLER will analyze the COMPONENT without unreasonable delay of receipt to determine whether or not the COMPONENT has a defect for which SELLER is liable according to this SUPPLY AGREEMENT, and in case of a defect for which SELLER is liable, SELLER will provide BUYER with a respective credit notice, which credit notice will include the shipping costs incurred by BUYER in sending back the defective COMPONENT to SELLER. If the SELLER determines in good faith that the defect in the COMPONENT is not one that SELLER is liable for, the BUYER and SELLER will come to a mutual satisfactory agreement regarding the supply of a replacement COMPONENT by the SELLER.
For ordering of spare parts Annex 3 of Appendix 2 shall apply. In case of conflicts between Annex
3 of Appendix 2 and Appendix 2, Annex 3 of Appendix 2 shall prevail.
For the product software embedded in the COMPONENTS the following shall apply:
With respect to the product software, including any relating documentation, BUYER shall have the right to (a) transfer the software and relating documentation to third parties only in connection with the respective COMPONENTS and (b) grant to them a non-exclusive right to use such software in machine-readable object code form and the relating documentation only in connection with the COMPONENTS and as specified in the operation documentation.
For the avoidance of doubt, for service software embedded in the COMPONENTS Exhibit 1 (General Terms and Conditions for use of Service Software) of Annex 3 of Appendix 3 (Supply Agreement) shall apply.
Unless otherwise agreed herein all other terms of the Development and Supply Agreement shall remain unaffected.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Siemens may also terminate the license in the event ViewRay or its Certified Service Organization (x) fails to make any payment due to Siemens hereunder or (y) fails to comply with any of the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, in each case, within 30 days after receipt of written notice from Siemens describing the breach (e.g., failure to pay or failure to comply with the terms of this agreement).
Notice of termination of any license for a set of Siemens Service Software will be notice of termination of the license to use the set of Siemens Service Software on the related COMPONENT.
