4.1.2. At least thirty (30) days before anticipated receipt of a First Approval and then on or before the last working day of each calendar month during the Term, Zogenix shall provide to Supplier a rolling twenty-four (24) month forecast of its requirements for Product (“Forecast”), broken down on a monthly basis with the first three (3) months of each such forecast constituting a binding commitment upon Zogenix to purchase such quantities (“Firm Period Forecast”) as evidenced by Purchase Orders submitted in accordance with Section 4.1.3.
4.1.3. All firm orders for Product (the “Purchase Order”) shall specify: (i) the type of Product being ordered; (ii) the amount of such Product being ordered (which shall be in whole Batch size quantities); and (iii) the Purchase Order Delivery Date. Each Purchase Order shall be submitted to Supplier at least ninety (90) days before the Purchase Order Delivery Date, and shall be deemed to be automatically accepted unless Supplier notifies Zogenix of its rejection of the same within five (5) Business Days of receipt, (or in the case of any Purchase Orders with quantities in excess of those in the most recent applicable Firm Period Forecast, within ten (10) Business Days of receipt) provided that Supplier shall not reject Purchase Orders that are in compliance with this Section 4.1.3 and do not specify an amount of Product that is in excess of the most recent applicable Firm Period Forecast.

Variance from committed Purchase Order Delivery Dates will be acceptable in the range ten (10) Business Days early and seven (7)
Business Days late. Zogenix agrees to purchase a minimum quantity of Products, as set forth in Exhibit 1.

Nothing in this Section 4.6 shall relieve Supplier of any obligation or liability under this Agreement.
4.7. Without limiting the foregoing, in the event of, and during the occurrence of, any Inability to Supply, if Zogenix elects to purchase any Product from a Third Party in order to replace Products that Supplier could not deliver to Zogenix hereunder, then Supplier shall pay to Zogenix an amount equal to the product of: (a) the actual per unit cost for Product paid by Zogenix to such Third Party supplier (as evidenced by the Third Party supplier’s invoice to Zogenix) less the applicable per unit cost for such Product Zogenix would have paid to Supplier hereunder; times (b) the number of units of Product actually purchased by Zogenix from such Third Party supplier. The remedies granted to Zogenix pursuant to this Section shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other remedies available to Zogenix at law or in equity. Supplier’s liability under this Section 4.7 shall be subject to the limits of liability in Section 12.4.
4.8. Capacity. The Supplier will provide sufficient organizational, financial, and personnel resources necessary to perform its obligation under this agreement to ensure available capacity to Manufacture and deliver Product to Zogenix, at a minimum of the latest Forecast plus thirty-three percent (33%). If at any time during
the term of this Agreement, Zogenix’s latest Forecast plus thirty-three (33%) exceeds Supplier’s then-current available capacity, the Supplier shall promptly notify Zogenix and Supplier and Zogenix shall meet and discuss in good faith ways in which additional Supplier capacity may be secured to meet the Forecast plus thirty-three percent (33%).

5. INVOICES, PAYMENT And TAXES
5.1. Invoices. Upon Supplier’s delivery of Product, Supplier shall submit an invoice to Zogenix at email@example.com. The invoices must be issued in line with the terms of the Value Added Tax Act 1994 and must be properly addressed to Zogenix International Limited at its UK business address.
5.2. Payment. Zogenix shall pay Supplier only for the Services requested by Zogenix and identified in the Scope of Work. If Supplier anticipates that a project shall exceed the costs identified in the Scope of Work, Supplier shall notify Zogenix, as soon as possible, of such additional costs. Zogenix must approve such additional costs in writing prior to Supplier incurring any such costs. Zogenix shall be obliged to pay only for the actual quantity of Product delivered at the Product Price stated in the applicable Scope of Work. Zogenix shall pay all undisputed amounts due within thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of the invoice by Zogenix. If Zogenix disputes all or any portion of an invoice, it shall be required to pay only the amount not in dispute, and in such event Zogenix shall notify Supplier of the amount and nature of the dispute. All payments due to Supplier shall be made wire transfer for deposit to the bank account of Supplier at a designated bank in the country where the Supplier’s place of business is located.
5.3. Taxes. The Product Price, and other fees for Services as provided for in the relevant Scope of Work, does not include value added tax. Where such value-added tax is properly chargeable by the Supplier, the amount of such tax, if any, will be added to the Product Price in effect at the time of the delivery of the Product thereof and shall be reflected in valid VAT invoices submitted to Zogenix by Supplier pursuant to this Agreement. Where Zogenix receives a valid VAT invoice, Zogenix shall pay the amount of such value-added tax indicated on the invoice to Supplier in accordance with the payment provisions of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, where any Product Price is denominated in a currency other than Great British Pounds (GBP), any value-added tax must be shown on the invoice in GBP, along with any conversion rate used. Failure of the Supplier to issue a valid VAT invoice, including any failure to denominate any value-added tax charged in GBP, will render any such
invoice invalid and any payment provision shall not commence unless and until Zogenix receives a valid VAT invoice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, taxes (and any penalties thereon) imposed on Supplier based on Supplier’s income (however denominated) will be the responsibility of Supplier.
6. Inspection and acceptance
6.1. Supplier shall test and inspect each Batch of Product for compliance with the Specifications prior to the release and shipment thereof to Zogenix. Supplier will provide a Certificate of Analysis, Certificate of Compliance and executed Batch Records on or before each shipment of each Batch of Product signed by a responsible quality official of Supplier. The Certificate of Analysis and Certificate of Compliance must include the results (whether numerical or otherwise) for each test performed that verify that the Product is in compliance with the Specifications, as well as a statement that the subject Batch was Manufactured in accordance with the Batch Records, cGMP and any applicable regulatory approvals.
6.2. Zogenix may test and inspect the Product after receipt and either accept or reject it. Product may be rejected if it does not comply with the Specifications or conform with any of the warranties provided by Supplier in this Agreement or the Quality/Technical Agreement, or is otherwise defective. Zogenix will be deemed to have accepted the Product, except as to latent defects which are not reasonably discoverable, if Zogenix fails to give notice of rejection within thirty (30) days after receipt by Zogenix of such Product. The written notice of rejection shall be given to Supplier and shall include identification of the lot number and description of the Specification non-compliance or other defect.
6.3. Following receipt of written notice of rejection of a particular Batch of Product, Supplier shall, subject to the limitations of liability in section 12.4, at Zogenix’s option, provide a credit, refund or replacement of Product to Zogenix, together with reimbursement for the cost of Free Goods Issue and Raw Materials incorporated in the rejected Product and Zogenix’s costs of shipping, insurance premiums, duties, taxes, and other reasonable out-of-pocket costs directly incurred in connection with the transportation and return or destruction of the rejected Product; provided, however, that if Supplier does not agree with Zogenix’s claim of noncompliance with the Specifications or other defect, then the Parties shall designate a mutually acceptable Third Party laboratory to make a determination on such matter from a sample obtained from the allegedly non-compliant or defective Batch shipped to Zogenix. The decision of the Third Party laboratory shall be binding on all Parties hereto and all expenses related to such Third Party investigation shall be borne by the Party found to have been mistaken. Should such Third Party laboratory confirm Zogenix’s claim of Product noncompliance, Supplier shall (subject to the provisions and limitations of liability in Sections 12.4) at Zogenix’s request, promptly provide Zogenix with a credit, refund or prompt replacement of Product to Zogenix, together with reimbursement for the cost of Free Goods Issue and Raw Materials incorporated in the rejected Product and Zogenix’s costs of shipping, insurance premiums, duties,
taxes, and other reasonable out-of-pocket costs directly incurred in connection with the transportation and return or destruction of the rejected Product.
6.4. Zogenix shall return any rejected Product to Supplier at Supplier’s expense to an address that Supplier may designate within ten (10) days of Supplier receiving written notice of rejection; provided, however, that if Supplier does not agree with Zogenix’s claim of noncompliance with the Specifications or other defect, Zogenix shall not be obligated to return the rejected Product to Supplier until ten (10) days after a final determination is made by a Third Party laboratory that such Product does not comply with the Specifications or is otherwise defective as provided in Section 6.3 above. All freight costs of such shipment shall be borne by Supplier.

Supplier shall indemnify, defend and hold Zogenix, its Affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents (“Zogenix Indemnified Parties”), harmless from and against any Losses resulting from any Third Party claims arising out of (a) Supplier’s breach of this Agreement, any Scope of Work, the Quality/Technical Agreement or of any representation or warranty made by Supplier to Zogenix in this Agreement, any Scope of Work, or the Quality/Technical Agreement; (b) Supplier’s supply of noncomplying Product or defective Product; or (c) any negligent or reckless act or omission or misconduct on the part of any Supplier Indemnified Party in the course of its or their performance under this Agreement, except to the extent that Zogenix is obliged to indemnify, defend and hold harmless any Supplier Indemnified Party pursuant to Section 12.1 above.

12.3. Indemnification Procedure. If a Supplier Indemnified Party or a Zogenix Indemnified Party (in each case an "Indemnified Party"), receives any written claim which such Indemnified Party believes is the subject of indemnity hereunder by Zogenix or Supplier as the case may be (the "Indemnifying Party"), the Indemnified Party shall, as soon as reasonably practicable after forming such belief, give notice thereof to the Indemnifying Party, provided that the failure to give timely notice to the Indemnifying Party as contemplated hereby shall not release the Indemnifying Party from any liability to the Indemnified Party unless the Indemnifying Party demonstrates that the defense of such claim is prejudiced by such failure. The Indemnifying Party shall have the right, by prompt notice to the Indemnified Party to assume the defense of such claim at its cost, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnifying Party does not so assume the defense of such claim or, having done so, does not diligently pursue such defense, the Indemnified Party may assume the defense, with counsel of its choice, but at the cost of the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party assumes and diligently pursues the defense, it shall have absolute control of the litigation; the Indemnified Party may, nevertheless, participate therein through counsel of its choice and at its cost. The Party not assuming the defense of any such claim shall render all reasonable assistance to the Party assuming such defense, out-of-pocket costs of such assistance shall be for the account of the Indemnifying Party. No claim hereunder shall be settled other than by the Party defending the same, and then only with the consent of the other Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided that the Indemnified Party shall have no obligation to consent to any settlement of any such claim which imposes on the Indemnified Party any liability or obligation which cannot be assumed or performed in full by the Indemnifying Party.

13.1. A Party receiving Confidential Information (the "Receiving Party") from the other Party (the "Disclosing Party") shall not to publish, disclose or use for any purpose other than its performance hereunder any of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and shall use at least the same standard of care as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event less than a reasonable level of care, to ensure that it and its Affiliates and their respective employees, agents, or consultants do not disclose or make any unauthorized use of Confidential Information provided
by the Disclosing Party. The Receiving Party shall notify the Disclosing Party promptly upon discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information. The Receiving Party’s non-disclosure obligations hereunder shall persist during the Term and for a period of seven (7) years following the termination or expiry of this Agreement.
13.2. Each Party shall limit disclosure of Confidential Information received hereunder to only those of its (or its Affiliates’) officers, employees, contractors, agents and consultants who are directly concerned with the performance of this Agreement and its attorneys and potential acquirers (“Representatives”). Each Party shall advise such Representatives upon disclosure of any Confidential Information to them of the confidential nature of the Confidential Information and the terms and conditions of this Section 13, and shall use all reasonable safeguards to prevent unauthorized disclosure of the Confidential Information by such Representatives.
13.3. Both Parties agree that the following shall not be considered Confidential Information subject to this Agreement:
13.3.1. information that is in the public domain by publication or otherwise, provided that such publication is not in violation of this Agreement or any other confidentiality agreement;
13.3.2. information that the Receiving Party can establish in contemporaneous writing was in the Receiving Party’s possession prior to the time of disclosure by the Disclosing Party and was not acquired, directly or indirectly, from the Disclosing Party;
13.3.3. information that the Receiving Party lawfully receives from a Third Party; provided that such Third Party was not obligated to hold such information in confidence;
13.3.4. information that, prior to the Disclosing Party’s disclosure thereof, was independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to any Confidential Information as established by appropriate documentation; and
13.3.5. information that the Receiving Party is compelled to disclose by a court, administrative agency, or other tribunal; provided that in such case the Receiving Party shall promptly and to the extent legally permissible, give as much advance notice as feasible to the Disclosing Party to enable the Disclosing Party to exercise its legal rights to prevent and/or limit such disclosure. In any event, the Receiving Party shall disclose only that portion of the Confidential Information that, in the opinion of the Receiving Party’s legal counsel, is legally required to be disclosed and will exercise reasonable efforts to ensure that any such information so disclosed will be accorded confidential treatment by said court, administrative agency or tribunal.
13.4. All Confidential Information shall remain the property of the Disclosing Party. At the termination of this Agreement upon the request of Zogenix, Supplier shall promptly return or destroy any Zogenix Confidential Information in Supplier’s possession,
custody or control, except that Supplier may keep one (1) copy for archival purposes, and provided, however, that retention of electronic copies of Confidential Information maintained pursuant to regular data archiving and record retention policies and practices shall not be deemed to be a violation of this Agreement.
13.5. Each Party acknowledges and expressly agrees that the remedy at law for any breach by it of the terms of this Section 13 shall be inadequate and that the full amount of damages which would result from such breach are not readily susceptible to being measured in monetary terms. Accordingly, in the event of a breach or threatened breach by either Party of this Section 13, the other Party shall be entitled to immediate injunctive relief prohibiting any such breach and requiring the immediate return of all Confidential Information. The remedies set forth in this Section 13 shall be in addition to any other remedies available for any such breach or threatened breach, including the recovery of damages from the breaching Party.

14. FORCE MAJEURE
14.1. Effects of Force Majeure. Neither Party shall be held liable or responsible for failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any of its obligations under this Agreement in case such failure or delay is due to any condition beyond the reasonable control of the affected Party including, without limitation, Acts of God, Governmental Agency actions or guidance, war, riot, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, fire, civil disorder, explosion, accident, flood, sabotage, or national defense requirements (a “Force Majeure Event”). Such excuse shall continue as long as the Force Majeure Event continues, provided that Zogenix may cancel without penalty any and all Purchase Orders in the event Supplier is unable to fulfill an outstanding Purchase Order within ninety (90) days of its scheduled Purchase Order Delivery Date due to a Force Majeure Event. Upon cessation of such Force Majeure Event, Supplier shall promptly resume performance on all Purchase Orders which have not been terminated.
14.2. Notice of Force Majeure Event. In the event either Party is delayed or rendered unable to perform due to a Force Majeure Event, the affected Party shall give notice thereof and its expected duration to the other Party promptly after the occurrence of the Force Majeure Event; and thereafter, the obligations of the affected Party will be suspended during the continuance of the Force Majeure Event, provided that the affected Party shall take commercially reasonable steps to remedy the Force Majeure Event with all reasonable dispatch.

The Parties recognize that a bona fide dispute as to certain matters may from time to time arise during the Term that relate to a Party’s rights or obligations hereunder (a “Dispute”). In the event of the occurrence of any Dispute, the Parties shall first try to settle their differences amicably via the Supply Committee. If the Supply Committee cannot achieve resolution, then either Party may, by written notice to the other, have such Dispute referred to its highest ranking officer for attempted resolution by good faith negotiations within sixty (60) days after such notice is received. If either Party desires to pursue arbitration under Section 16.2 below to resolve any such Dispute, unless expressly provided for otherwise herein, a referral to such executives under this Section 16.1 shall be a mandatory condition precedent. Said designated executive as of the Effective Date are as follows.
For Zogenix: Chief Financial Officer

Except as expressly otherwise provided in this Agreement, in the event of any dispute arising out of or relating to the interpretation of any provisions of this Agreement or the failure of either Party to perform or comply with any obligation of such Party pursuant to this Agreement or the breach, termination or validity hereof (a “Dispute”), such Dispute shall be finally settled by arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules of the London Court of International Arbitration (“LCIA”) by three (3) arbitrators (the “Arbitrators”) appointed in accordance with said rules, provided that the appointed arbitrators shall have appropriate experience in the biopharmaceutical industry. The place of arbitration shall be London, England, and the Arbitrators shall decide the dispute in accordance with the substantive law of England and Wales. The Arbitrators, by accepting their appointment, undertake to conduct the process such that the award shall be rendered within six (6) months of their appointment and shall be final and binding upon all Parties participating in such arbitration. The judgment rendered by the Arbitrators may, at the Arbitrator’s discretion, include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for any expert and other witnesses. Judgment upon the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction, or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of the award and/or an order of enforcement as the case may be.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Disputes regarding the scope, validity, enforceability or inventorship of any patents or patent applications shall be submitted for final resolution by a court of competent jurisdiction. This Section 16.2 shall not prohibit a Party from seeking preliminary injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction.
16.3. The Parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales (the “English Courts”) for any action in aid of arbitration, for provisional relief of the status quo, or to prevent irreparable harm prior to the appointment of the Arbitrators in Section 16.2 above, and to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts for any action to enter or enforce any arbitral award entered in connection with this Agreement. THE PARTIES HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE, AND AGREE TO CAUSE THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES TO WAIVE, THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN SUCH ACTIONS.
