Testing Period describing the reasons for the rejection. Once a delivery of Captisol is accepted or deemed accepted hereunder, Company shall have no recourse against CyDex in the event Captisol is subsequently deemed unsuitable for use for any reason, except (i) as provided in Section 10 below, or (ii) in the case of Captisol that is not fit for use in humans after the Acceptance Testing Period due to a latent defect in such Captisol caused by CyDex, its employees or agents.
(c)    Confirmation. After its receipt of a notice of rejection from Company pursuant to Section 3.6(b) above, CyDex shall notify Company as soon as reasonably practical (but no later than [***] after receipt of Company’s rejection notice) whether it accepts Company’s basis for rejection and CyDex may perform its own testing at its own cost to evaluate whether such rejection was necessary or justified. If the parties are unable to agree as to whether a shipment of Captisol supplied by CyDex or its Third-Party Manufacturer hereunder meets the Specifications, such question shall be submitted to an independent quality control laboratory mutually agreed upon by the parties. The findings of such independent laboratory shall be binding upon the parties. The cost of the independent quality control laboratory shall be borne by the party whose results are shown by such laboratory to have been incorrect.
(d)    Return or Destruction of Rejected Shipments. Company may not return or destroy any batch of Captisol until it receives written notification from CyDex that CyDex does not dispute that the batch fails to meet the Specifications.

Upon written authorization from CyDex to do so, Company shall promptly destroy the rejected batch of Captisol and provide CyDex with written certification of such destruction. Upon receipt of CyDex’s request for return, Company shall promptly return the rejected batch of Captisol to CyDex. In each case, CyDex will reimburse Company for the documented, reasonable costs associated with the destruction or return of the rejected Captisol.
(e)    Refund or Replacement. Company shall not be required to pay any invoice with respect to any shipment of Captisol properly rejected pursuant to this Section 3.5. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Company shall be obligated to pay in full for any rejected shipment of Captisol that is subsequently determined to meet the Specifications in all material respects, irrespective of whether Company has already paid CyDex for a replacement shipment. CyDex shall, upon acceptance of Company’s basis of rejection or other confirmation that such shipment failed to meet the Specifications, at Company’s sole discretion and direction either: (i) issue a refund or credit equal to the purchase price paid, taxes paid and shipping costs with respect to such rejected shipment within [***] of Company’s request; or (ii) replace such rejected shipment at no additional cost (beyond the total cost, including delivery, for the rejected shipment paid or owed by Company to CyDex) to Company, with such replacement to be shipped to Company in accordance with Company’s instructions and schedule (or, if CyDex in good faith cannot meet Company’s schedule, as soon as reasonably practical). Company acknowledges and agrees that, except for the warranty provisions set forth in Section 9.2 below and the indemnification obligations set forth in Section 10 below, Company’s rights to a refund or credit for or to receive replacement of properly rejected shipments of Captisol hereunder shall be Company’s sole and exclusive remedy, and CyDex’s sole obligation, with respect to non-conforming Captisol delivered hereunder which has not been used in the manufacture of the Licensed Product.

The disclosure and use of Confidential Information will be governed by the provisions of this Section 8. Neither Company nor CyDex shall use the other’s Confidential Information except as expressly permitted in this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means all scientific, clinical, regulatory, marketing, business, operational, financial or commercial information disclosed by the Disclosing Party to the Receiving Party, including but not limited to product specifications, data, know-how, formulations, product concepts, sample materials, business and technical information, financial data, batch records, trade secrets, processes, techniques, algorithms, programs, designs, drawings, and any other information related to a party’s present or future products, sales, suppliers, customers, employees, investors or business.

Neither party shall disclose Confidential Information of the other to any third party without the other’s prior written consent, and any such disclosure to a third party shall be pursuant to the terms of a non-disclosure agreement no less restrictive than this Section 8. Each party shall take such action to preserve the confidentiality of each other’s Confidential Information as it would customarily take

LICENSE AND SUPPLY AGREEMENT    PAGE 18



to preserve the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information (but in no event less than a reasonable standard of care). Each party, upon the other’s request, will return all the Confidential Information disclosed to the other party pursuant to this Agreement, including all copies and extracts of documents, within sixty (60) days of the request, except that the receiving party may retain (i) one (1) copy for archival purposes and (ii) such electronic copies that exist as part of the party’s computer systems, network storage systems and electronic backup systems.
8.3    Exceptions. The use and non-disclosure obligations set forth in this Section 8 shall not apply to any Confidential Information, or portion thereof, that the Receiving Party can demonstrate by appropriate documentation:
(i)    at the time of disclosure is in the public domain;
(ii)    after disclosure, becomes part of the public domain, by publication or otherwise, through no fault of the Receiving Party;
(iii)    at the time of disclosure is already in the Receiving Party’s possession, and such prior possession can be properly demonstrated by the Receiving Party, with the exception of Confidential Information exchanged between parties prior to the execution of this Agreement which is subject to an ongoing obligation of confidentiality;
(iv)    is made available to the Receiving Party by an independent third party, provided, however, that to the Receiving Party’s knowledge, such information was not obtained by said third party, directly or indirectly, from the Disclosing Party hereunder; or
(v)    is developed by or on behalf of the Receiving Party or its Affiliates without the aid, application or use of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information.
In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose information that is required to be disclosed by law, by a valid order of a court or by order or regulation of a governmental agency including but not limited to, regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), or in the course of litigation, provided that in all cases the Receiving Party shall give the other party prompt notice of the pending disclosure and shall assist the Disclosing Party (at Disclosing Party’s request and expense) in obtaining, a protective order preventing or limiting the disclosure and/or requiring that the Confidential Information so disclosed be used only for the purposes for which the law or regulation required, or for which the order was issued.
8.4    Injunction. Each party agrees that should it breach or threaten to breach any provisions of this Section 8, the Disclosing Party may suffer irreparable damages and its remedy at law may be inadequate. Upon any breach or threatened breach by the Receiving Party of this Section 8, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief in addition to any other remedy which it may have.

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, any liability or obligation of either party to the other for acts or omissions prior to the termination or expiration of this Agreement shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement. Such termination or expiration shall not relieve either party from obligations that are expressly indicated to survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, nor shall any termination or expiration of this Agreement relieve Company of its obligation to pay CyDex sums due in respect of Captisol ordered by Company and shipped prior to termination or expiration of this Agreement, and subsequently received by Company in good condition meeting all specifications applicable at the time of order.

14.3    Arbitration.
(a)    Procedure. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be exclusively and finally resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association then in effect, in Chicago, Illinois. The arbitration shall be conducted by an arbitrator(s) reasonably knowledgeable about the pharmaceutical industry and acceptable to CyDex and Company. If CyDex and Company cannot agree on a single arbitrator within [***] after a written demand for arbitration has been made, CyDex shall appoint an arbitrator, Company shall appoint an arbitrator, the two (2) arbitrators shall appoint a third arbitrator, and the three (3) arbitrators shall hear and decide the issue in controversy. If either party fails to appoint an arbitrator within [***] after service of the demand for arbitration, then the arbitrator appointed by the other party shall arbitrate any controversy in accordance with this Section 14.3(a). Except as to the selection of arbitrators, the arbitration proceedings shall be conducted promptly and in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association in effect at the time the arbitration demand is made. The costs and fees of any arbitration shall be paid by [***]. For purposes of this Agreement, "costs and fees" shall mean all reasonable pre-award expenses of the arbitration, including the fees of the arbitrator(s), administrative fees, travel expenses, out-of-pocket expenses such as copying and telephone, witness fees, and attorney's fees.
(b)    Confidentiality of Proceedings. All arbitration proceedings hereunder shall be confidential and the arbitrator(s) shall issue appropriate protective orders to safeguard each party’s Confidential Information. Except as required by law, neither a party nor an arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties.
(c)    Interim Equitable Relief. Either party may apply to the arbitrator(s) seeking injunctive relief until the arbitration award is rendered or the controversy is otherwise resolved. Either party may, without waiving any right or remedy under this Agreement, seek from any court

LICENSE AND SUPPLY AGREEMENT    PAGE 25



having jurisdiction any interim or provisional relief (including but not limited to interim injunctive relief) that is necessary to protect the rights or property of that party, pending the establishment of an arbitration tribunal or pending the arbitration tribunal's determination of the merits of the controversy. Neither party shall commence any court proceeding or action against the other to resolve any dispute arising out of relating to this Agreement, or the breach
thereof, except (i) to enforce an arbitral award rendered pursuant to this Section 14.3, or (ii) under the circumstances set forth in this Section 14.4(c).
(d)    Binding Effect. The provisions of this Section 14.3 shall survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement, and shall be severable and binding on the parties hereto, notwithstanding that any other provision of this Agreement may be held or declared to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable.
14.4    Costs and Expenses. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, each party shall bear all costs and expenses associated with the performance of such party’s obligations under this Agreement.
14.5    Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable for failure to perform, or delay in the performance of, its obligations under this Agreement (other than payment obligations) when such failure or delay is caused by an event of force majeure. For purposes of this Agreement, an event of force majeure means any event or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of the affected party, including but not limited to, war, insurrection, riot, fire, flood or other unusual weather condition, explosion, act of God, peril of the sea, strike, lockout or other industrial disturbance, sabotage, accident, embargo, breakage of machinery or apparatus, injunction, act of governmental authority, compliance with governmental order on national defense requirements, or inability to obtain fuel, power, raw materials, labor or transportation facilities. If, due to any event of force majeure, either party shall be unable to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement (other than payment obligations), the affected party shall immediately notify the other party of such inability and of the period during which such inability is expected to continue.
14.6    Notices. Any notice, request, or communication under this Agreement shall be effective only if it is in writing and personally delivered; sent by certified mail, postage pre-paid; facsimile with receipt confirmed; or by nationally recognized overnight courier with signature required, addressed to the parties at the addresses stated below or such other persons and/or addresses as shall be furnished in writing by any party in accordance with this Section 14.6.

of the scheduled release of such announcement to afford such other party a reasonable opportunity to review and comment upon the proposed text and the timing of such disclosure.

This Agreement and all Exhibits attached hereto or thereto contain the entire agreement of the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersede any and all prior agreements, written or oral, between CyDex and Company relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. This Agreement may not be amended unless agreed to in writing by both parties.
14.11    Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon, and the rights and obligations hereof shall apply to the CyDex and Company and any successor(s) and permitted assigns.

14.12    Waiver. The rights of either party under this Agreement may be exercised from time to time, singularly or in combination, and the exercise of one or more such rights shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any one or more of the others. No waiver of any breach of a term, provision or condition of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been made by either party unless such waiver is addressed in writing and signed by an authorized representative of that party. The failure of either party to insist upon the strict performance of any of the terms, provisions or conditions of this Agreement, or to exercise any option contained in this Agreement, shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment for the future of any such term, provision, condition or option or the waiver or relinquishment of any other term, provision, condition or option.
14.13    Severability. If a final judicial determination is made that any provision of this Agreement is unenforceable, this Agreement shall be rendered void only to the extent that such judicial determination finds such provisions unenforceable, and such unenforceable provisions shall be automatically reconstituted and become a part of this Agreement, effective as of the date first written above, to the maximum extent they are lawfully enforceable.
14.14    Assignment. Neither party may assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Agreement, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, to any third party without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign its rights and delegate its obligations under this Agreement to an Affiliate or to a third party successor, whether by way of merger, sale of all or substantially all of its assets of the business to which this Agreement pertains, sale of stock or otherwise, without the other party’s prior written consent. As a condition to any permitted assignment hereunder, the assignor hereby guarantees the performance of any assignee to the terms and obligations of this Agreement. Any assignment not in accordance with this Section 14.14 shall be void.

LICENSE AND SUPPLY AGREEMENT    PAGE 28

Except for the rights of Indemnitees pursuant to Section 10 hereof, and subject to Section 8.5 hereof, the terms and provisions of this Agreement are intended solely for the benefit of each party hereto and their respective Affiliates, successors or permitted assigns and it is not the intention of the parties to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person, including without limitation Sublicensees. The enforcement of any obligation of CyDex under this Agreement shall only be pursued by Company, its Affiliates or such Indemnitees, and not Sublicensees.
14.16    Headings. The descriptive headings of this Agreement are for convenience only, and shall be of no force or effect in construing or interpreting any of the provisions of this Agreement.

EXTERNAL SUPPLIER PROCESS CHANGE AGREEMENT FORM

Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc. ("Merck"), is committed to achieving the highest standards of quality and is dedicated to continuous improvement in compliance and quality through our business processes and practices with our suppliers. That said, suppliers are responsible for manufacturing their products in conformance with all laws and regulations that pertain to their specific operations. Suppliers are also responsible for assuring that they have qualified personnel with adequate training to control their own manufacturing processes and ensure consistent quality. Such controls extend to your firm properly evaluating any change in the materials; equipment or processes to ensure your products conform to original specifications.

Sometimes, a change in materials, equipment or process by a supplier may have an unintended impact on the product produced by the supplier and subsequently have an unintended impact on a product being produced by the customer. Merck requires notification of certain changes in materials, equipment or process so as to be able to evaluate whether such change may have an unintended impact on our use of your product. Our requiring this information does not alter your own responsibility in evaluating any and all changes undertaken by your firm.

This agreement will be relevant for any and all products Merck or any of its affiliates, including without limitation Schering Corporation, receives from any of your approved facilities.

Examples of changes that require prior notification and approval by Merck are described in the attached agreement. In the event of uncertainty as to whether or not notification is required, please contact your local Merck procurement office.
