Section 5.1Responsibility for Manufacturing. Subject to oversight by the Joint Manufacturing Committee, as applicable, and subject to this Section 5.1, MTEM shall be primarily responsible for Manufacturing activities with respect to Development Material for a Licensed Product and Components thereof through completion of the first Phase I Clinical Trial for such Licensed Product. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Takeda shall, upon notice to MTEM at any time in Takeda’s sole discretion, have the right to assume, or allow its designee to assume, some or all of such Manufacturing activities as provided in Section 5.2 In addition to the support that MTEM shall provide to Takeda with respect to regulatory filings under Section 2.2.1, at any time and upon Takeda’s sole discretion and reasonable request, MTEM shall prepare manufacturing sections of regulatory filings when MTEM was responsible for the manufacturing activities covered by such filings.

5.1.1Supply Agreement. Within [***] after the Effective Date (or such other period as agreed by the Parties), the Parties shall agree on a clinical supply agreement between the Parties pursuant to which MTEM would supply [***] as elected by Takeda, for the Phase I Program and (with MTEM’s written approval) thereafter until the completion of the Technology Transfer, which supply agreement shall also include as Co-Development Costs any mutually agreed Manufacturing process development and supply chain development activities for the applicable Licensed Product (or CD38 SLT-A Fusion Protein) beyond the activities conducted pursuant to the [***] with GMP and shall be provided for up to [***] (and if needed prior to the Technology Transfer, such additional quantities as are reasonably requested by Takeda and can be supplied by MTEM through Commercially Reasonable Efforts). If no Supply Agreement for the supply of [***] is in place within the time period specified above, then MTEM shall supply [***] on the terms set forth herein. If Takeda initiates the Technology Transfer from MTEM and no Supply Agreement for the supply of [***] is in place, MTEM shall have the right to complete (or have completed) the Manufacture of any work-in-process Licensed Products or Components thereof and all such costs shall be deemed Co-Development Costs. The Joint Manufacturing Committee shall propose to the Parties, from time to time, amendments to the Supply Agreement as needed to meet Manufacturing objectives, but for clarity, such amendments shall be effective only if and when the Parties duly execute such an amendment.

5.1.2Third Party Suppliers. Takeda acknowledges that MTEM may contract with one or more Third Parties to fulfill its obligations to Manufacture hereunder (each such Third Party, a “Contract Manufacturing Organization” or “CMO”) subject to the approval of such CMO by the Joint Manufacturing Committee pursuant to Section 5.4.2. The Parties hereby agree that each approved CMO is approved solely for performance of Manufacturing within the scope of the applicable CMO agreement as approved by the Joint Manufacturing Committee. Through the Joint Manufacturing Committee, MTEM will keep Takeda informed of all activities of its CMOs and material information related to the Manufacturing [***] as the case may be. With respect to [***] MTEM will provide Takeda with reasonable access to its CMOs, including

In the event that the Joint Manufacturing Committee is unable to reach unanimous agreement on any issue that is subject to its decision-making authority, such matter shall be referred to the Joint Steering Committee for resolution, except that in the case of a dispute at Joint Steering Committee, Takeda will have [***] decision making authority with respect to Manufacturing activities at the JSC level, subject to Section 5.3.

5.4.4Duration. Unless earlier terminated by mutual written consent of the Parties, the Joint Manufacturing Committee shall be in existence until the later of (a) completion of the [***] and (b) (i) completion of the [***] with respect to each Licensed Product that is intended to be clinically developed and (ii) [***] after filing of the last IND for such a Licensed Product has been filed (unless a clinical hold has been imposed with respect to such IND, in which case upon release of the clinical hold or termination of the clinical development of such Licensed Product).

shall apply only if MTEM has exercised the Co-Development Option and the milestone event occurs during the Co-Development Period.  

In the event that Column 2 applies, but MTEM has not paid its share of the Co-Development Costs in full prior to the date the milestone payment would be due, then Takeda shall pay the amount in Column 1 (if any) and then once such Co-Development Costs have been paid to Takeda, then Takeda shall pay the difference between the amount in Column 2 and Column 1 for the applicable milestone, such that Takeda has paid the total amount due to MTEM for the achievement of the applicable milestone. No amounts shall be due under this Section 6.2 for subsequent or repeated achievements of any such milestone event. For clarity, the maximum aggregate amount of milestone payments payable by Takeda pursuant to Column 2 above is Three Hundred Seven Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars ($307,500,000). If MTEM does not exercise the Co-Development Option, the possible aggregate amount of milestone payments payable by Takeda pursuant to Column 1 above is One Hundred Sixty Two Million Five Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars ($162,500,000).

If a [***] is considered [***] then following [***] then [***] above, as applicable, would be payable upon [***] based on such [***] (if such milestone has not been previously paid). For purposes of clarity, payment of [***] above will not preclude a future payment of [***] above.

Section 6.3Sales Milestone Payments. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including Section 6.5, Takeda shall pay to MTEM the following sales milestone payments within [***] after the end of the first Calendar Year in which the aggregate annual Net Sales of all Licensed Products in such Calendar Year reach the following thresholds for the first time:

Column 2 shall apply only in the case in which MTEM has exercised the Co-Development Option and the milestone is achieved with respect to a Calendar Year prior to the Calendar Year in which the Co-Development Period ended.

event that Column 2 applies, but MTEM has not paid its share of the Co-Development Costs in full prior to the date the milestone payment would be due, then Takeda shall pay the amount in Column 1 (if any) and then once such Co-Development Costs have been paid to Takeda, then Takeda shall pay the difference between the amount in Column 2 and Column 1 for the applicable milestone, such that Takeda has paid the total amount due to MTEM for the achievement of the applicable milestone.

Section 6.4Royalties Payable by Takeda.

6.4.1In consideration for the Exclusive Licenses granted to Takeda herein, and subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including Section 6.5, during the Royalty Term, or in the case in which MTEM exercised its Co-Development Option and the Co-Development Period remains in effect, the Co-Development Royalty Term for a Licensed Product, Takeda shall pay to MTEM royalties on the annual aggregate Net Sales of all Licensed Products sold during the Royalty Term or, if it applies per above in this Section 6.4.1, the Co-Development Royalty Term, for such Licensed Product in the applicable country, which royalties shall be paid at the following rates as set forth below:

For avoidance of doubt, the incremental royalty rates set forth above shall only apply to that portion of the Net Sales of royalty-bearing Licensed Products that falls within the indicated range of sales. By way of example, and not in limitation of the foregoing, if, in the case in which the Royalty Term, rather than the Co-Development Royalty Term, applies during a Calendar Year, Net Sales of the Licensed Products, in the aggregate, were equal to [***] and MTEM has not exercised the Co-Development Option, the royalty payable by Takeda would be calculated by adding (i) the royalty due on such Net Sales with respect to the [***] at the first level percentage of [***] (under Column 1), and (ii) the royalty due on Net Sales for the Licensed Products with respect to the next [***] at the second level percentage of [***] (under Column 1). The obligation to pay royalties shall be imposed only once with respect to the same unit of Licensed Product sold by Takeda, its Affiliate or Sublicensee. Takeda shall have no obligation to pay any royalty with respect to Net Sales of any Licensed Product in any country after the Royalty Term or Co-Development Royalty Term, whichever is applicable, for such Licensed Product in such country is not in effect.

In the event that Column 2 applies, but MTEM has not paid its share of the Co-Development Costs in full prior to the date any royalty payment would be due, then Takeda shall pay royalties based on the rate in Column 1 (if any) and then once such Co-Development Costs have been paid to Takeda, then Takeda shall pay the difference between such royalties calculated based on Column 1 and the royalties that would have been calculated on the applicable Net Sales based on Column 2, such that Takeda has paid the total royalties due to MTEM.

6.4.2Royalty Reductions.

(a)If and for so long as there is a Biosimilar Product being sold by a Third Party in a Calendar Quarter in a country in the Territory, then the royalties otherwise payable by Takeda to MTEM in such country pursuant to Section 6.4.1 shall be reduced by the percent set forth below of the amounts otherwise owed:

Biosimilar Products unit volume sales for each Licensed Product in such country, as a percentage of total sales of Licensed Products, on the one hand, and Biosimilar Products, on the other hand, in such country

The Parties will select a mutually agreeable independent Third Party to identify and calculate the Biosimilar Products unit volume sales for each Licensed Product in a Calendar Quarter in a country in the Territory and such unit volume sales amounts shall be included in each royalty report provided for under Section 6.11. In the event that such independent Third Party is not available or otherwise able to accurately determine or calculate the Biosimilar Product unit volume sales, Takeda shall calculate the Biosimilar Product unit volume sales based on available data in good faith. In the event MTEM disputes in good faith Takeda’s calculation of any Biosimilar Product unit volume sales for a Licensed Product in a country in the Territory, MTEM may by written notice to Takeda require, at MTEM’s cost, that such dispute be resolved in accordance with Section 12.3 by and submitted to a panel of experts; provided, that Takeda shall have the right to recover royalty reductions pursuant to this Section 6.4.2(a) if it prevails after resolution of any such dispute, by offsetting the excess payments with

future royalty payments owed to MTEM or obtaining a refund from MTEM, as elected by Takeda.

(b)Subject to the last sentence of Section 6.4.1 and if applicable, Section 6.4.2(f), from and after the date on which a Licensed Product is sold in a country and is not at the time of sale covered by at least one Valid Patent Claim(s) of the MTEM Background Patent Rights, Patent Rights in the Joint Background IP, the Product Program Patent Rights, the MTEM Program Patent Rights, or the Takeda Program Patent Rights (including Takeda Targeting Moiety Patent Rights unless MTEM does not exercise the Co-Development Option or, if exercised, unless MTEM opts out of Co-Development for the applicable Licensed Product but otherwise excluding the Takeda Targeting Moiety Patent Rights) in the country in which such Licensed Product is sold and, if the Co-Development Royalty Term applies to such country, any regulatory exclusivity has expired in the country where such Licensed Product is sold, (i) the royalty rate that would otherwise apply with respect to such country shall each be reduced by (A) [***] in the case in which the Co-Development Royalty Term applies or (B) [***] if the Royalty Term applies, provided (ii) the royalty rate reduction in clause (i) shall no longer apply if thereafter a Valid Patent Claim within the Patent Rights specified above in this clause (b) becomes issued or granted in such country during the Royalty Term or the Co-Development Royalty Term, as the case may be.  

(c)Takeda shall have the right to deduct costs and expenses in accordance with Section 8.7.2, to the extent not otherwise deducted under this Section 6.4.2.

(d)If in the reasonable opinion of Takeda, the Development, Manufacture, Commercialization or other Exploitation of a Licensed Product hereunder infringes or misappropriates or is reasonably expected to infringe or misappropriate any Patent Right, trade secret or other intellectual property right of a Third Party in any country or jurisdiction in the Territory, then Takeda shall have the right, but not the obligation, upon consultation with MTEM, to negotiate and obtain a license to or other rights from such Third Party to such rights as necessary to Develop, Manufacture, Commercialize or otherwise Exploit such Licensed Product in such country or jurisdiction. In the event that Takeda negotiates and obtains any such license from a Third Party, Takeda shall be entitled to deduct [***] of the amounts payable to such Third Party with respect to such Licensed Product from the royalties payable to MTEM hereunder for such Licensed Product in accordance with, and to the extent provided herein. If and for so long as Takeda makes payments to any Third Party under the Existing Third Party Agreement, Takeda may reduce the royalty payments otherwise due as set forth in Section 6.4 by up to [***] of the amount paid to the Third Party but this reduction shall not exceed [***] of Net Sales for the given period. In addition, the reductions under this clause (d), shall not, in the aggregate, reduce the royalty rate by more than [***] of the royalty rate that would otherwise apply to such Licensed Products. Takeda may carry forward, and deduct from future royalty payments due hereunder, any amounts which cannot be deducted under this clause (d) due to such [***] floor.  

(e)If MTEM has or does receive research funding from a Third Party and in exchange is required to pay royalties or other amounts to such Third Party or its designee in consideration therefor, then MTEM shall be [***] responsible for [***]. For clarity, if and for so long as the Parties agree that Takeda should assume the duty to make payments to any Third Party under this clause (e), such payments shall be fully deducted from the amount payable to MTEM under Section 6.4.1.

(f)Any reductions set forth in this Section 6.4.2 shall be applied, on a Licensed Product-by-Licensed Product and country-by-country basis, to the royalty rate payable to MTEM under Section 6.4.1 in the order in which they are stated ((a), (b), (c), (d) and (e)) and if there is more than one reduction, then the reductions shall be cumulative. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, except in the case in which the Co-Development Royalty Term applies for a Licensed Product in the Territory, the royalties payable to MTEM hereunder for such Licensed Product in such country for any Calendar Quarter shall not be reduced pursuant to clauses ((a) through (d)), collectively, to less than [***] of the amounts otherwise payable pursuant to Section 6.4.1 (prior to application of clauses (a) through (d)) by virtue of the application of the reductions (in (a) through (d)); provided, however, that Takeda may carry over, and deduct from royalties due in any subsequent Calendar Quarter(s), amounts paid to Third Parties pursuant to Section 6.4.2(c) or 6.4.2(d) if Takeda is unable to fully take such deduction as a result of the application of such floor for the given Calendar Quarter. For clarity, there is no floor under this clause (f) on the reduction of royalties payable for Licensed Products in the case in which the Co-Development Royalty Term applies (but the floors set forth in Section 6.4.2(d) shall apply).  

(g)MTEM acknowledges and agrees that the sales levels set forth in this Section 6.2 and Section 6.3 shall not be construed as representing an estimate or projection of anticipated sales of the Licensed Products or implying any level of diligence or Commercially Reasonable Efforts in the Territory and that the sales levels set forth in Section 6.2 and Section 6.4 are merely intended to define Takeda’s royalty and other payment obligations, as applicable, in the event such sales levels are achieved and that the sales levels set forth in Section 6.2 and Section 6.4 are merely intended illustrative purposes only.

Section 6.5Co-Development Cost Sharing. The Parties shall share Co-Development Costs as follows:  

6.5.1Early Stage Program. MTEM and Takeda shall [***] of the Co-Development Costs with respect to the Early Stage Program (whether incurred by MTEM or Takeda or their respective Affiliates, licensees, or Sublicensees), and including any costs incurred by Takeda under the IPA and markups in the Supply Price, subject to Section 2.1.2(b) and Article IV.

6.5.2Post Phase Ia Program. Subject to Section 6.5.3, if MTEM has exercised the Co-Development Option in accordance with Section 2.1.2(b), MTEM and Takeda shall [***] of the Co-Development Costs with respect to the Post Phase Ia Program (whether incurred by MTEM or Takeda or their respective Affiliates, licensees, or Sublicensees), subject to Section 2.1.2(b) and Article IV, until, in the case of the delivery of a notice (the “Co-Development Termination Notice”) pursuant to the next sentence, the effective date of the termination of MTEM's Co-Development Option. If, at any point after MTEM’s exercise of the Co-Development Option, MTEM elects to end its Co-Development hereunder, it may do so by providing Takeda with [***] prior written notice (the “Co-Development Termination Notice Period”). MTEM shall continue to be responsible for [***] of the Co-Development Costs incurred prior to the end of the Co-Development Termination Notice Period, in accordance with Section 6.5.2. MTEM shall not be obligated pay for any Co-Development Costs incurred after the end of the Co-Development Termination Notice Period. Effective as of the end of Co-Development Termination Notice Period, Takeda’s milestone obligations under this Article VI shall be reduced to the lower amounts in Column 1 of each applicable table (as if MTEM had not

Page 44

exercised its Co-Development Option), and Takeda shall continue to be obligated to pay royalties at the higher rate set forth in Column 2 of the table in Section 6.4 until the amount of royalties paid to MTEM by Takeda equals, in the aggregate, the MTEM Co-Development Cost Amount (the “Transition Point”), after which, Takeda shall pay royalties at the lower rate set forth in Column 1 of the table in Section 6.4.

6.5.3Without limiting Takeda's rights to defer payment of a portion of Column 2 milestones and royalties in the event that MTEM has not paid to Takeda its Co-Development Costs it owes as set forth above in this Article VI or Takeda's rights to adjust milestones and royalties as set forth in Section 6.5.2, then in the case of any delay in payment of MTEM’s Co-Development Costs (other than those disputed in good faith by MTEM in writing) for more than [***] then Takeda may elect to terminate the Co-Development Period by written notice to MTEM and the Co-Development Period shall terminate if MTEM has not made such payment within [***] after receipt of such notice, such termination of the Co-Development Period effective at the end of such cure period. Upon effectiveness of such termination, Takeda’s obligation to pay the higher milestone amounts and royalty rates (set forth in the applicable Column 2 of each table in this Article VI) shall cease, and Takeda shall thereafter be obligated to pay the lower (Column 1) amounts and rates.

6.5.4Reporting and Payment Mechanics. Unless otherwise decided by the Joint Finance Working Group, for any period of Co-Development, until the end of the Co-Development Period, the Parties shall exchange an estimate of their respective Co-Development Costs for each Calendar Quarter within the last week of the Calendar Quarter and shall provide each other with a forecast of its anticipated Co-Development Costs for the upcoming Calendar Quarter. For each Calendar Quarter, the Parties will report to one another their respective Co-Development Costs within [***] of the end of each Calendar Quarter and will then reconcile the Co-Development Costs so each Party shares its portion of the total Co-Development Costs. The reporting will include a summary of internal costs (based on the FTE Rate) and external costs included within the Co-Development Costs, in the same format as the Early Stage Development Budget. The applicable Party shall issue a corresponding invoice by the [***] of each Calendar Quarter for the prior Calendar Quarter and any payment shall be due in [***] from receipt of such invoice.

6.5.5Disputes. Any dispute as to whether certain costs qualify as Co-Development Costs shall be resolved pursuant to the JSC or Section 12.3.  

6.5.6No Double Counting. In no circumstances shall Development Costs incurred by a Party’s Affiliate, licensee or Sublicensee be double counted as Co-Development Costs, and in no circumstances shall any mark-ups among such Party and its applicable Affiliates, licensees or Sublicensees be included as a Co-Development Cost.

Section 6.6Royalty Payment Terms. Royalties shown to have accrued by each Royalty Report provided for under this Article VI shall be due on the date such Royalty Report is due pursuant to Section 6.11.2.

Section 6.7Payment Method. All payments by Takeda to MTEM, or payments by MTEM to Takeda in the case of Co-Development, under this Agreement, shall be paid in U.S. Dollars, and all such payments shall be made by bank wire transfer in immediately available funds to the bank account designated by MTEM in writing; provided, that such account

Page 45

information is provided to Takeda at least [***] prior to any such payment becoming due hereunder.

Section 6.8Late Payments. If a Party does not receive payment of any sum due to it on or before the due date therefor, simple interest shall thereafter accrue on the sum due to such Party from the due date until the date of payment at a per-annum rate of [***] over the then-current LIBOR prime rate reported in The Wall Street Journal or the maximum rate allowable by Applicable Law, whichever is lower.

Section 6.9Exchange Control. If at any time legal restrictions prevent the prompt remittance of part or all royalties with respect to any country in the Territory where any Licensed Product is sold, payment shall be made through such lawful means or method as the Parties reasonably shall determine.

Section 6.10Taxes; Withholding Taxes. The amounts payable pursuant to this Agreement (“Payments”) shall not be reduced on account of any Taxes unless required by Applicable Law. Takeda shall deduct and withhold from the Payments any Taxes that it is required by Applicable Law to deduct or withhold. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if MTEM is entitled under any applicable tax treaty to a reduction of rate of, or the elimination of, or recovery of, applicable withholding tax, it may deliver to Takeda or the appropriate governmental authority the prescribed forms necessary to reduce the applicable rate of withholding or to relieve Takeda of its obligation to withhold tax. In such case Takeda shall apply the reduced rate of withholding, or not withhold, as the case may be, provided that Takeda is in receipt of evidence, in a form reasonably satisfactory to Takeda, for example MTEM’s delivery of all applicable documentation at least [***] prior to the time that the Payments are due. If, in accordance with the foregoing, Takeda withholds any amount, it shall pay to MTEM the balance when due, make timely payment to the proper taxing authority of the withheld amount, and send MTEM proof of such payment within [***] following that payment.

MTEM shall cooperate with Takeda (at Takeda’s expense) in seeking any tax exemption or credits that may be available to Takeda with respect to the Licensed Products or any CD38 SLT-A Fusion Proteins, including the tax credit available under section 45C of the Internal Revenue Code by reason of Takeda’s research and development expenditures contributing to any Licensed Product being granted orphan drug status by the FDA.

Section 6.11Royalty Reports; Exchange Rates.

6.11.1For so long as any Royalty Term or Co-Development Royalty Term, as applicable, remains in effect, Takeda shall, with respect to each Calendar Quarter (or portion thereof), provide a written report showing, on a consolidated aggregated basis in reasonable detail (a) the Net Sales of Licensed Products sold by Takeda, its Affiliates and its Sublicensees in the Territory during the corresponding Calendar Quarter on which royalties are due (b) the royalties payable in U.S. Dollars, if any, which shall have accrued hereunder based upon such Net Sales of Licensed Products, (c) the withholding taxes, if any, required by law to be deducted in respect of such royalties, (d) the dates of the First Commercial Sale of each Licensed Product in each country in the Territory for which royalties are due hereunder, if it has occurred during the corresponding Calendar Quarter, and (e) the exchange rates (as determined pursuant to Section 6.11.3 herein) used in determining the royalty amount expressed in U.S. Dollars (each, a “Royalty Report”).

Portions of this Exhibit, indicated by the mark “[***],” were omitted and have been filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Registrant’s application requesting confidential treatment pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


 

6.11.2Royalty Reports shall be due within [***] following the end of the Calendar Quarter to which such Royalty Report relates. Takeda shall keep complete and accurate records in sufficient detail to properly reflect all Net Sales and to enable the royalties payable hereunder to be determined. For clarity, “sufficient detail” shall not require Takeda to keep any records thereof beyond records that it maintains in the ordinary course and shall not be required to divulge the proprietary information of any Third Party.

6.11.3With respect to sales of Licensed Products invoiced in U.S. Dollars, Net Sales and royalties payable shall be expressed in U.S. Dollars. With respect to sales of Licensed Products invoiced in a currency other than U.S. Dollars, Net Sales and royalties payable shall be expressed in the currency of the invoice issued by the Party making the sale together with the U.S. Dollars equivalent of the royalty due, calculated using the average quarter-end rate of exchange for a given Calendar Quarter published in the East Coast Edition of the Wall Street Journal during the applicable Calendar Quarter.

Section 6.12Audits.

6.12.1Upon the written request of a Party and with at least [***] prior written notice, but not [***] the other Party shall permit an independent certified public accounting firm of internationally recognized standing, selected by such first Party and reasonably acceptable to such other Party, at such first Party’s sole cost and expense (except as set forth in this Section 6.12), to have access during normal business hours to such of the records of such other Party as required to be maintained under this Agreement to verify: (a) the accuracy of the Royalty Reports due hereunder, in the case of MTEM, (b) the accuracy of the Supply Price, in the case of Takeda, or (c) during the period the Parties are sharing Development Costs pursuant to Section 6.5, the accuracy of and support for the Development Costs claimed by the other Party. Such accountants may audit records relating to Royalty Reports, the Supply Price or Development Costs, as applicable, made for any year ending not more than [***] prior to the date of such request. The accounting firm shall disclose to the Party requesting such audit its findings as to whether the Royalty Reports, the Supply Price or the Development Costs, as applicable, were correct or not, together with the specific details concerning any discrepancies, and such information shall be shared at the same time with the other Party. No other information obtained by such accountants shall be shared with the Party requesting such audit.

6.12.2If such accounting firm concludes that any royalties were owed but not paid to MTEM, Takeda shall pay the additional royalties within [***] following the date MTEM delivers to Takeda such accounting firm’s written report so concluding, together with the interest payment required by Section 6.8. If such accounting firm concludes that the Supply Price charged by MTEM was inconsistent with the definition therefor and such inconsistency resulted in an overpayment by Takeda hereunder, MTEM shall reimburse Takeda such overpayment within [***] following the date Takeda delivers to MTEM such accounting firm’s written report so concluding, together with the interest payment required by Section 6.8. The fees charged by such accounting firm shall be paid by the Party requesting such audit; provided, that if the audit discloses that (a) the royalties payable by Takeda for the audited period are more than [***] of the royalties actually paid for such period, then Takeda shall pay the reasonable fees and expenses charged by such accounting firm, (b) the Supply Price payable by Takeda for the audited period is less than [***] of the Supply Price actually paid for such period, then MTEM shall pay the reasonable fees and expenses charged by such accounting firm, or (c) if, during the period Development Costs are being shared by the Parties pursuant to Section 6.5, the share of

Page 47

the other Party’s Development Costs payable by such Party pursuant to Section 6.5 is less than [***] of the amounts actual paid by such Party for such Development Costs, then the audited Party shall pay the reasonable fees and expenses charged by such accounting firm. If such accounting firm concludes that the royalties paid were more than what was owed during such period, MTEM shall refund the overpayments within [***] following the date MTEM receives such accounting firm’s written report so concluding.

Section 6.13Confidential Financial Information. The Parties shall treat all financial information subject to review under this Article VI or under any sublicense agreement as Confidential Information of such Party as set forth in Article VII, and shall cause its accounting firm to retain all such financial information in confidence under terms substantially similar to those set forth in Article VII and with respect to each inspection, the independent accounting firm shall be obliged to execute for each Party’s benefit a reasonable confidentiality agreement prior to commencing any such inspection.

Section 7.3Use of Name. Except as expressly provided herein, neither Party shall mention or otherwise use the name, logo or trademark of the other Party or any of its Affiliates or any of its or their Sublicensees (or any abbreviation or adaptation thereof) (including any Product Trademark) in any publication, press release, marketing and promotional material or other form of publicity without the prior written consent of such other Party.

MTEM shall keep Takeda reasonably informed and provide reasonable opportunity for Takeda to comment with respect to all material steps with regard to the preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance of such Patent Rights (including any patent administrative proceeding), and shall reasonably consider such comments in good faith. If MTEM decides not to file for or continue prosecuting any such Patent Rights, then MTEM shall so notify Takeda in writing (which written notice shall be at least [***] before any relevant deadline after considering any extension for such continued prosecution of those Patent Rights). Thereafter, Takeda shall have the right, but not the obligation, to engage in the activities set forth in this Section 8.3.1 with respect to such Patent Rights, as applicable, at Takeda’s sole expense.  

8.3.2Takeda Prosecution and Maintenance.

(a)Takeda (or its Affiliate or Sublicensee) shall have the sole right and authority, but not the obligation, to prepare, file, prosecute and maintain the Takeda Background Patent Rights, the Takeda Program Patent Rights and the Other Program Patent Rights solely owned by Takeda on a worldwide basis, and to be responsible for any pre-grant and post-grant patent administrative proceedings, as well as Extensions.

Period after exercise by MTEM of the Co-Development Option, with decision making authority delegated to the Joint Patent Committee and with Takeda having [***] only with respect to claims in such Patent Rights directed [***] Except during the Co-Development Period, Takeda shall control the prosecution and maintenance of such Patent Rights during the Post Phase Ia Program and thereafter, subject to the cooperation provisions in Section 8.3.5.  

8.3.4Step-In Rights. If Takeda decides in any country not to file, prosecute or, maintain a Patent Rights in the Joint Background IP, a [***] or Joint Other Program Patent Right, or intends to allow such a Patent Right to lapse or become abandoned without having first filed a substitute Patent Right, Takeda shall notify and consult with MTEM of such decision or intention at least [***] prior to the date upon which the subject matter of such Patent Right shall become unpatentable or such Patent Right shall lapse or become irrevocably abandoned, and MTEM shall thereupon have the right (but not the obligation) to assume the prosecution and maintenance thereof at its own expense with counsel of its own choice, subject, at all times, to Takeda’s licenses hereunder and coordination through the Joint Patent Committee. If MTEM later decides not to file, prosecute or maintain such Patent Right, it shall notify Takeda within the [***] period specified above in this Section 8.3.4, mutatis, mutandis, and Takeda shall thereupon have the right, but not the obligation, to assume the prosecution and take the prosecution and maintenance thereof at its own expense with counsel of its own choice without any further obligation to MTEM.

8.3.5Cooperation. The Parties shall at all times fully cooperate with each other in order to reasonably implement the foregoing provisions of this Section 8.3. Such cooperation may include each Party’s execution of necessary legal documents, coordinating filing or prosecution of applications to avoid potential issues during prosecution (including novelty, non-obviousness, written description, enablement, estoppel and double patenting), and the assistance of each Party’s relevant personnel and the transfer of the applicable patent files to the prosecuting Party. In the case that any proposed filing by Takeda with respect to any Patent Rights covered by this Section 8.3 discloses [***] disclosed or claimed by any Patent Rights as to which MTEM has the right to prosecute under this Section 8.3, then the Parties will use good faith efforts to coordinate filings with respect to such species Patent Rights so that such filings by Takeda are made no [***] that filings by MTEM with respect to the corresponding [***] Patent Rights filed by MTEM (provided, however, that the foregoing coordination shall (a) not unreasonably delay Takeda from making any filing with respect to any such Patent Rights and (b) in any event, not delay Takeda from making any such filing by more than [***] after notice by Takeda to MTEM that Takeda is ready to make such proposed filing, which notice shall include a copy of such proposed filing). Without limitation of the foregoing, the Parties shall use good faith, reasonable efforts to avoid creating potential issues in prosecution of the patent applications covered by this Section 8.3. Except as otherwise expressly authorized in this Agreement, Takeda shall not disclose or claim in any patent application, patent or publication any Confidential Information of MTEM without first obtaining MTEM’s prior written consent. Except as otherwise expressly authorized in this Agreement, MTEM shall not disclose or claim in any patent application, patent or publication any Confidential Information of Takeda without first obtaining Takeda’s prior written consent.

MTEM shall provide prompt and reasonable comments and, as requested by Takeda, assistance with respect thereto as is required under any Applicable Law to obtain such Extension, and shall cooperate in good faith in making decisions regarding, and to apply for, such Extensions as they relate to any of the foregoing Patent Rights. As between the Parties, MTEM shall have the sole right to make final decisions regarding, and to apply for, Extensions for the MTEM Background Patent Rights, the MTEM SLT-A Program Patent Rights and the Other Program IP solely owned by MTEM, but for any such Extensions as they relate to MTEM Background Patent Rights, Takeda may direct MTEM to fill for an Extension if no Extension is available for any Patent Rights in the Joint Background IP or Program Patent Rights with respect to Licensed Products.

8.3.7UPC Opt-Out and Opt-In.

If Takeda fails to make such an election within [***] following the date on which the opportunity to make such election arose, then MTEM shall have the right and option to do so at its expense. With respect to any such permitted election, the Parties shall coordinate their activities with respect to any submissions, filings or other activities in support thereof.

8.4.2MTEM shall have the first right, at its sole cost and expense, but not the obligation, to determine the appropriate course of action to enforce the MTEM Background Patent Rights, MTEM Program Patent Rights, and Other Program Patent Rights solely owned by MTEM, or otherwise abate the infringement thereof, to take (or refrain from taking) appropriate action to enforce such Patent Rights, to control any litigation or other enforcement action and to enter into, or permit, the settlement of any such litigation or other enforcement action with respect to such Patent Rights. MTEM shall in good faith consider the interests of Takeda in conducting the foregoing activities. If MTEM fails to enforce any such Patent Rights with respect to the Manufacture, Commercialization or other activity by any Third Party with respect to a product that competes with any Licensed Product within [***] following any Infringement Notice, then Takeda shall have the right and option to do so at its expense.

MTEM and Takeda shall fully cooperate with each other, at Takeda’s expense, in any such action to enforce such Patent Rights, including being joined as a party to such action if necessary, including participating in joint or common interest defenses. MTEM will be informed of any settlement discussions.

8.4.4Enforcement of Jointly Owned IP. Takeda shall have the sole right, but not the obligation, to determine the appropriate course of action to enforce the Patent Rights in the Joint Background IP, Product Program Patent Rights and Joint Other Program Patent Rights with respect to the Manufacture, Commercialization or other activity by any Third Party with respect to a product that competes with any Licensed Product or with respect to any other infringement of such Patent Rights, including the sole right to control any litigation or other enforcement action and to enter into, or permit, the settlement of any such litigation or other enforcement action with respect to the such Patent Rights. Takeda and MTEM agree to cooperate with each other and to [***]. If there are any recoveries that exceed the Parties' costs and expenses, then the Parties shall share any recoveries based on the percentage that each Party bore with regard to such costs and expenses (i.e., in the case in which both Parties fulfill such cost sharing obligation, then the Parties will [***]. Such cooperation shall include participating in joint or common interest defenses and in any settlement discussions and in being joined as a party to such action if necessary, with Takeda having final decision-making authority when agreement cannot be reached after all dispute resolution mechanisms set forth in Section 12.3.

[***] the Party controlling the enforcement action.

Section 8.5Separate Representation. The Party not bringing an action with respect to an infringement in the Territory under this Article VIII shall be entitled to separate representation in such matter by counsel of its own choice and at its own expense, but such Party shall at all times cooperate fully with the Party bringing such action; provided that to the extent such separate representation is retained and used in connection with any cooperation provision of this Article VIII, the Party bringing such action shall reimburse such cooperating Party for the cost of such counsel, if required under this Article VIII.

Section 8.6Trademarks. Takeda shall be responsible for the selection, registration, maintenance and defense of all trademarks for use in connection with the sale or marketing of the Licensed Products (collectively, “Product Trademarks”) at Takeda’s own cost and expense, and Takeda shall own such Product Trademarks. MTEM shall not, and shall not permit its Affiliates to, (a) use in their respective businesses, any trademark that is confusingly similar to, misleading or deceptive with respect to or that dilutes any (or any part) of any Product Trademark and (b) do any act that endangers, destroys, or similarly affects, in any material respect, the value of the goodwill pertaining to any Product Trademark. MTEM shall not, and shall not permit its Affiliates to, attack, dispute or contest the validity of or ownership of any Product Trademark or any registrations issued or issuing with respect thereto, other than any Product Trademark that is confusingly similar to, misleading or deceptive with respect to or that dilutes any (or any part) of any Product Trademarks.

Section 8.7Third Party Actions.

8.7.1Notification of Third Party Action. Each Party shall promptly disclose to the other Party in writing any warning letter or other notice of infringement or misappropriation received by a Party, or any action, suit or proceeding brought against a Party alleging infringement of a Patent Right or misappropriation of intellectual property of any Third Party with regard to any aspect of the conduct by either Party, its Affiliates, sublicensees or Distributors pursuant to this Agreement or a Program, including any defense or counterclaim in connection with an infringement action initiated pursuant to Section 8.4 (each, a “Third Party Action”).

8.7.2Takeda Right to Defend. As between the Parties, Takeda, [***] and through counsel of its choosing, shall have the first right, but not the obligation, to defend against any Third Party Action in the Territory alleging that the Development, Manufacture, Commercialization or other Exploitation of any Licensed Product infringes or misappropriates a Third Party’s intellectual property rights; provided, however, that to the extent such Third Party Action alleges that any SLT-A Technology or any other MTEM Background IP (or any Know-How or Patent Right that, but for any misappropriation by or on behalf of MTEM or any of its Affiliates, would be considered an SLT-A Technology or other MTEM Background IP under this Agreement), or the Exploitation thereof, infringes or misappropriates a Third Party’s intellectual property rights (the “Third Party SLT-A IP”), then MTEM shall be entitled to participate in

Portions of this Exhibit, indicated by the mark “[***],” were omitted and have been filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Registrant’s application requesting confidential treatment pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


 

such Third Party Action with its own counsel, [***] and Takeda shall confer with MTEM in the defense and any settlement thereof, and shall consider reasonable recommendations made by MTEM with respect thereto. If Takeda, after consultation with MTEM, obtains a license or other rights from such Third Party to the Third Party SLT-A IP, whether by license, settlement, judgment or otherwise, Takeda shall be entitled to offset a total of up to [***] of the reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses of defending or settling such Third Party Action under this Section 8.7.2 (including the payment of any damage awards, settlement amounts or other similar amounts payable to such Third Party for the alleged infringement or misappropriation of such Third Party SLT-A IP, excluding any amounts otherwise deductible under Section 6.4.2(d)) as permitted under Section 6.4.2(g). Nothing in this Section 8.7.2 shall limit MTEM’s obligations under Article X to the extent such Third Party Action relates to a breach of a representation, warranty or covenant of MTEM in Article IX. Any recoveries awarded to Takeda in connection with any Third Party Action defended under this Section 8.7.2 shall be applied first to reimburse each of MTEM and Takeda for its respective reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses of defending such claim, suit or proceedings, with the balance of any such recoveries being shared between the Parties [***] to Takeda and [***] to MTEM. For clarity, to the extent such Third Party Action alleges that any Takeda Program IP or Takeda Background IP (or any Know-How or Patent Right that, but for any misappropriation by or on behalf of Takeda or any of its Affiliates, would be considered Takeda Program IP or Takeda Background IP under this Agreement), or the Exploitation thereof, infringes or misappropriates a Third Party’s intellectual property rights and Takeda (with notice to and cooperation with MTEM) obtains a license or other rights from such Third Party to such intellectual property rights, whether by license, settlement, judgment or otherwise, Takeda shall cover all costs and expenses with no offset for defending or settling such Third Party Action under this Section 8.7.2. Takeda shall have the sole and exclusive right to select counsel for such Third Party Actions. MTEM shall have the right to select its own counsel to represent MTEM and consult with Takeda’s selected counsel in any Third Party Action relating to the SLT-A Technology or the MTEM Background IP, or, if MTEM has not delivered a Co-Development Termination Notice and has paid its share of Co-Development Costs in full, the Takeda Targeting Moiety IP and Product Program IP.

8.7.3Consultation; Settlement. The Parties shall consult with one another on all material aspects of the defense and settlement of Third Party Actions. The Parties shall reasonably and in good faith cooperate with each other in all such actions or proceedings. No Party shall admit the invalidity or unenforceability of any Patent Right Controlled by the other Party without the other Party’s prior written consent.

Section 8.8Invalidity or Unenforceability Defenses or Actions.

8.8.1Each Party shall promptly notify the other Party in writing of any alleged or threatened assertion of invalidity or unenforceability of any of the Patent Right in the Joint Background IP, Program Patent Rights, the MTEM Background Patent Rights or the Takeda Background Patent Rights by a Third Party of which such Party becomes aware.

8.8.2In the event that such an invalidity or unenforceability allegation or threatened assertion arises in connection with an enforcement proceeding governed by Section 8.4, then the Party controlling such action shall control the defense of any such allegation or assertion.

Portions of this Exhibit, indicated by the mark “[***],” were omitted and have been filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Registrant’s application requesting confidential treatment pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


 

8.8.3In the event that such an allegation or assertion arises outside of an enforcement action under Section 8.4, then the Parties shall discuss in good faith the most favorable approach to defend against any such allegation in light of each Party’s commercial interests in the applicable Patent Rights, including which Party should control the defense of the validity and enforceability of the such Patent Rights except that Takeda shall have the sole right to control the defense with respect to any Program Patent Rights owned or Controlled by Takeda and Takeda Background Patent Rights and the [***] with respect thereto. Takeda shall have the right, but not the obligation, to defend and control the defense of the validity and enforceability of such Patent Rights at its sole expense in the Territory and using counsel of its own choice. If the Party controlling the defense against alleged or threatened assertion of any claim of invalidity or unenforceability with respect to a Program Patent Rights (other than with respect to any Program Patent Rights owned or Controlled by Takeda), Patent Right in the Joint Background IP, or MTEM Background Patent Right elects not to defend or control the defense of the applicable Patent Rights in a suit brought in the Territory or otherwise fails to initiate and maintain the defense of any such claim, suit or proceeding, then the other Party may conduct and control the defense and settlement of any such claim, suit or proceeding using counsel of its own choice at its sole cost and expense. Where a Party controls such an action, the other Party shall have the right to participate in any such claim, suit or proceeding with counsel of its choice at its sole cost and expense (provided, that the controlling Party shall retain control of the defense in such claim, suit or proceeding) and shall cause its Affiliates to, assist and cooperate with the controlling Party, at the controlling Party’s expense, as such controlling Party may reasonably request from time to time in connection with its activities set forth in this Section. In connection with any activities with respect to a defense, claim or counterclaim relating to the Program Patent Rights (other than with respect to any Program Patent Rights owned or Controlled by Takeda) or the MTEM Background Patent Rights pursuant to this Section 8.8, the controlling Party shall (a) consult with the other Party as to the strategy for such activities, (b) consider in good faith any comments from the other Party and (c) keep the other Party reasonably informed of any material steps taken and provide copies of all material documents filed, in connection with such defense, claim or counterclaim, pursuant to Section 8.7.

Section 8.9Takeda Patent Challenge. Takeda or any of its Affiliates or (sub)licensees will provide written notice to MTEM at least [***] prior to initiating any action or proceeding seeking a determination that any Patent Right comprising the [***] or [***] in any country is invalid or unenforceable (including a request for reexamination of any such Patent Right) (such action or proceeding, a “Patent Challenge”), which notice shall (a) state the basis for such Patent Challenge, and (b) include a copy of all relevant prior art or other materials used as the basis for such Patent Challenge. Upon delivery of such notice and during the pendency of any Patent Challenge, all milestone payments and royalties due under this Agreement will be increased by [***] and held in escrow pending the outcome of such Patent Challenge, being paid [***] only upon a finding of validity and enforceability of said Patent Rights covering a Licensed Product, and otherwise said payments and royalties being retained by Takeda (or its Affiliates or (sub)licensees). The foregoing provisions will not apply where MTEM, or any of its Affiliates or licensees, makes any claim or demand under or in connection with any Patent Right, whether informally or in connection with threatened or actual litigation, or whether through an assertion of entitlement to royalties, an action for infringement or otherwise, with respect to a product controlled by Takeda or any of its Affiliates or (sub)licensees (other than a Licensed Product) or the Exploitation thereof, and nothing herein will prejudice Takeda’s (or its Affiliate’s or (sub)licensee’s) ability to challenge the validity or enforceability of such Patent Right.

case ((a) through (d)), to the extent such Liabilities resulted from any action for which [***] must indemnify [***] under Section 10.1.2(a) or (b).

10.1.2[***] shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless [***], its Affiliates and its and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents (the “[***]”) from and against all Liabilities incurred by or imposed on any of the [***] as a result of any Claims to the extent such Claims are incurred, relate to, are in connection with or arise out of (a) the breach or non-fulfillment of any representations, warranties or covenants in this Agreement by [***], (b) the negligence, recklessness or willful misconduct of [***] in connection with the performance of its obligations hereunder, (c) violation of Applicable Law by [***] in connection with the performance of its obligations hereunder, or (d) the [***] [***] its Affiliates or Sublicensees, except in each case ((a), (b), (c) or (d)), to the extent such Liabilities resulted from any action for which [***] must indemnify [***] under Section 10.1.1.

Section 10.2Procedure.

10.2.1A Party (the “Indemnitee”) that intends to claim indemnification under this Section 10.2 shall promptly provide notice to the other Party (the “Indemnitor”) of any Claim in respect of which the Indemnitee intends to claim such indemnification, which notice shall include a reasonable identification of the alleged facts giving rise to such Liability, and the Indemnitor shall have the right to participate in, and, to the extent the Indemnitor so desires, jointly with any other Indemnitor similarly noticed, to control the defense thereof with counsel selected by the Indemnitor. However, notwithstanding the foregoing, except with respect to any Claim that is a Third Party Action, the process for the defense of which shall be governed by Section 8.7, the Indemnitee shall have the right to participate in, but not control, the defense of any Claim, and request separate counsel, with the fees and expenses to be paid by the Indemnitee, unless (a) representation of such Indemnitee by the counsel retained by the Indemnitor would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between such Indemnitee and any other Party represented by such counsel in such proceedings or (b) the Indemnitor has failed to assume the defense of the applicable Claim, in which case ((a) or (b)), such fees and expenses shall be paid by the Indemnitor. The Indemnitee shall, and shall cause each of its Affiliates and its and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents, as applicable, to, cooperate in the defense or prosecution thereof and shall furnish such records, information and testimony, provide such witnesses and attend such conferences, discovery proceedings, hearings, trials and appeals and otherwise providing reasonable access to such indemnitees and other employees and agents of the Indemnitee, in each case as may be reasonably requested in connection therewith; provided, that the Indemnitor shall reimburse the Indemnitee for its reasonable and verifiable out-of-pocket expenses in connection therewith. The Indemnitor may not settle any Claim, and the Indemnitee shall not be responsible for or be bound by any settlement of a Claim that imposes an obligation on it, without the prior written consent of the Indemnitee, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.

10.2.2The assumption of the defense of a Claim by the Indemnitor shall not be construed as an acknowledgment that the Indemnitor is liable to indemnify the Indemnitee in respect of the Claim, nor shall it constitute a waiver by the Indemnitor of any defenses it may assert against the Indemnitee’s claim for indemnification. In the event that it is ultimately determined that the Indemnitor is not obligated to indemnify, defend or hold harmless the Indemnitee from and against the Claim, the Indemnitee shall reimburse the Indemnitor for any

and all costs and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs of suit) and any Liabilities incurred by the Indemnitor in its defense of the Claim.

All of such insurance coverage may be maintained through a self-insurance plan that substantially complies with the foregoing limits and requirements. Thereafter, Takeda shall maintain such insurance coverage without interruption during the Term and for a period of at least [***] thereafter. Each Party shall provide the other Party at least [***] prior written notice of any cancellation to or material change in its insurance coverage below the amounts and types described above.

Article XI
TERM AND TERMINATION

Section 11.1Term.

11.3.1Breach. Either Party may (but is not required to and without limitation of any other right or remedy such Party may have) terminate this Agreement for material breach by the other Party (the “Breaching Party”) of this Agreement if the Breaching Party has not cured such breach within [***] after notice thereof (such period, the “Notice Period”) specifying the breach and its claim of right to terminate, other than:

(a)with respect to a breach that cannot be cured within the Notice Period and the Breaching Party commences actions to cure such breach within the Notice Period, in which case the Notice Period shall be tolled (provided, that the Breaching Party thereafter diligently continues such actions); or

(b)with respect to any alleged breach by Takeda of its diligence obligations set forth in Section 2.1.3 and Section 2.3.3 in which case, MTEM shall first provide written notice thereof to Takeda and the Parties shall meet within [***] after delivery of such notice to Takeda to discuss in good faith such alleged breach and Takeda’s Development and Commercialization plans, as applicable, with respect to the applicable Licensed Product, which discussions shall be concluded before MTEM may issue any such termination notice with respect to such alleged breach; provided, that if either Party initiates a dispute resolution procedure under Section 12.3 as permitted under this Agreement to resolve the dispute for which termination is being sought within [***] following the end of the Notice Period and is diligently pursuing such procedure, the Notice Period shall be tolled and the termination shall become effective only if such breach remains uncured for [***] after the final resolution of the dispute through such dispute resolution procedure (or, if the breach cannot be cured within such [***] period, if the Breaching Party commences actions to cure such breach within such period and thereafter diligently continues such actions). It is understood that termination pursuant to this Section 11.3.1 shall be a remedy of last resort and may be invoked only in the case where the breach cannot be reasonably remedied by the payment of money damages. During any cure period under this Section 11.3.1 in response to a notice from Takeda, any obligation of Takeda to pay milestones under Article VI shall be suspended unless and until MTEM has cured the material breach at issue; provided, however, that within [***] after such cure, Takeda shall pay to MTEM all such suspended milestone payments.  

11.3.2Insolvency. Either Party may terminate this Agreement in its entirety effective immediately upon written notice to the other Party if, at any time such other Party (a) files in any court or agency pursuant to any statute or regulation of any state or country a petition in bankruptcy or insolvency or for reorganization (save for solvent reorganization or solvent reconstruction), (b) files for, appoints or suffers appointment of a receiver or trustee of the Party or over substantially all of its assets that is not discharged within [***] after such filing, (c) proposes a written agreement of composition or extension of substantially all of its debts, (d) files a petition under any bankruptcy or insolvency act or has any such petition filed against that is not discharged within [***] of the filing thereof, (e) proposes or is a party to any dissolution or liquidation, (f) admits in writing its inability generally to meet its obligations as they fall due in the general course or (g) makes an assignment of substantially all of its assets for the benefit of creditors.

Section 11.4License Survival Upon Insolvency. All licenses (and to the extent applicable, rights) granted under or pursuant to this Agreement are, and shall otherwise be deemed to be, for purposes of Section 365(n) of 11 U.S.C. § 101, et. seq. (“Bankruptcy Code”), licenses of rights to “intellectual property” as defined under the Paragraph 101(35A) of the

Bankruptcy Code. The Parties agree that the non-bankrupt Party shall retain and may fully exercise all of its rights and elections under Applicable Law. The Parties further agree that, in the event of the commencement of bankruptcy proceeding by or against a bankrupt Party, the other Party shall be entitled to a complete duplicate of (or complete access to, as appropriate) any intellectual property that is licensed to such Party pursuant to the license grants set forth in Article III, but only to the extent set forth in such license grants, and all embodiments of such intellectual property; and the same, if not already in the other Party’s possession, shall be promptly delivered to the other Party (a) upon any such commencement of a bankruptcy proceeding, upon the other Party’s written request therefor (which request must identify the specific intellectual property), unless the bankrupt Party (or trustee on behalf of the bankrupt Party) elects within [***] to continue to perform all of its obligations under this Agreement or (b) if not delivered under (a) above, upon rejection of this Agreement by or on behalf of the bankrupt Party, upon written request therefore by the other Party.

The Parties agree that if any dispute or disagreement (a “Dispute”) in respect of this Agreement arises between Takeda on the one hand and MTEM on the other, or the JSC where Takeda does not have [***] decision-making authority, subject to Section 12.13, the Parties shall follow the following procedure in an attempt to resolve the dispute or disagreement.

12.3.1The Party claiming that such a dispute exists shall give notice in writing (“Notice of Dispute”) to the other Party of the nature of the dispute.

12.3.2Within [***] following receipt of a Notice of Dispute, the [***] of MTEM and the [***] (or equivalent) of Takeda shall meet at a mutually agreed upon time and location (which may be by phone) for the purpose of resolving such dispute.

12.3.3In the event of a dispute between the Parties requiring resolution by a panel of experts (“Expert Panel”), such dispute shall be resolved in accordance with this Section 12.3.3. Notice from a Party initiating resolution by the Expert Panel shall contain a statement of the issue forming the basis of the dispute, the position of the moving Party as to the proper resolution of that issue and the basis for such position. Within [***] after receipt of such notice,

Portions of this Exhibit, indicated by the mark “[***],” were omitted and have been filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Registrant’s application requesting confidential treatment pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


 

the responding Party shall submit to the moving Party a statement of its conception of the specific issue in question, its position as to the proper resolution of that issue and the basis for such position.

(a)Within [***] of the responding Party’s response, each Party shall appoint to the Expert Panel an individual who (i) has expertise in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry and the specific matters at issue, (ii) is not a current or former director, employee or consultant of such Party or any of its Affiliates, or otherwise has not received compensation or other payments from such Party (or its Affiliates) for the [***] and (iii) has no known personal financial interest or benefit in the outcome or resolution of the dispute, and the appointing Party shall give the other Party written notice of such appointment; provided, that for such appointment to be effective and for such individual to serve on the Expert Panel, such individual must deliver to the other Party a certificate confirming that such individual satisfies the criteria set forth in clauses (i) through (iii) above, disclosing any potential conflict or bias and certifying that, as a member of the Expert Panel, such individual is able to render an independent decision. Within [***] of the appointment of the second expert, the two (2)-appointed experts shall agree on an additional expert who meets the same criteria as described above, and shall appoint such expert as chair of the Expert Panel. If the Party-appointed experts fail to timely agree on a third expert, then upon the written request of either Party, each Party-appointed expert shall, within [***] of such request, nominate one expert candidate and the CPR Institute for Dispute Resolution shall, within [***] of receiving the names of the Parties’ respective nominees, select one of those experts to serve as the chair of the Expert Panel. Each expert shall agree, prior to his or her appointment, to render a decision as soon as practicable after the appointment of the full Expert Panel.

(b)Within [***] of the appointment of the third expert, the Expert Panel shall hold a preliminary meeting or teleconference with the Parties or their representatives and shall designate a time and place for a hearing of the Parties on the dispute and the procedures to be utilized at the hearing. The Parties may agree in writing to waive the hearing and have the Expert Panel reach a decision on the basis of written submissions alone. The Expert Panel may order the Parties to produce any documents or information that are relevant to the dispute. All such documents or information shall be provided to the other Party and the Expert Panel as expeditiously as possible but no later than [***] prior to the hearing (if any), along with the names of all witnesses who will testify at the hearing and a brief summary of their testimony. The hearing shall be held in Boston, MA unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, and shall take place as soon as possible but no more than [***] after the appointment of the third expert, unless the Parties otherwise agree in writing or the Expert Panel agrees to extend such time period for good cause shown. The hearing shall last no more than [***], unless otherwise agreed by the Parties or the Expert Panel agrees to extend such time period for good cause shown. After the conclusion of all testimony (or if no hearing is held after all submissions have been received from the Parties), at a time designated by the Expert Panel no later than [***] after the close of the hearing or the receipt of all submissions, each Party shall simultaneously submit to the Expert Panel and exchange with the other Party its final proposed resolution.

(c)In rendering the final decision (which shall be rendered no later than [***] after receipt by the Expert Panel of the Parties’ respective proposed resolutions), the Expert Panel shall be limited to choosing a resolution proposed by a Party without modification; provided, that in no event shall the Expert Panel render a decision that is inconsistent with the Parties’ intentions as set forth in this Agreement. The agreement of two (2) of the three (3)

experts shall be sufficient to render a decision and the Parties shall abide by such decision. The decision of the Expert Panel shall be final and binding on the Parties and may be entered and enforced in any court having jurisdiction. The Parties shall share equally the costs and expenses of the Expert Panel.

12.3.4In the event of an unresolved dispute between the Parties involving intellectual property, including any disputes relating to inventorship or the validity, enforceability or scope of any patent or trademark rights shall, but other than as set forth in Section 12.3.3, such dispute shall, at either Party’s election and subject to Section 12.2, be submitted for resolution by a court of competent jurisdiction.

12.3.5In the event of a dispute regarding any payments owing under this Agreement, all undisputed amounts shall be paid promptly when due and the balance, if any, promptly after resolution of the dispute.

Section 12.4Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with the Exhibits and Schedules attached hereto and the Quality Agreement, contains the entire understanding of the Parties with respect to the specific subject matter hereof. All express or implied agreements and understandings, either oral or written, heretofore made are expressly superseded by this Agreement (other than the Multi-Target Agreement). This Agreement may be amended, or any term hereof modified, only by a written instrument duly executed by both Parties. The Multi-Target Agreement shall remain in effect by its terms, except that with respect to the Licensed Product and Target and other subject matter of this Agreement, this Agreement shall control.  

Section 12.5Severability. Each Party hereby agrees that it does not intend to violate any public policy, statutory or common laws, rules, regulations, treaty or decision of any government agency or executive body thereof of any country or community or association of countries. Should one or more provisions of this Agreement be or become invalid, the Parties shall substitute, by mutual consent, valid provisions for such invalid provisions, in their economic effect, are sufficiently similar to the invalid provisions that it can be reasonably assumed that the Parties would have entered into this Agreement based on such valid provisions. In case such alternative provisions cannot be agreed upon, the invalidity of one or several provisions of this Agreement shall not affect the validity of this Agreement as a whole, unless the invalid provisions are of such essential importance to this Agreement that it is to be reasonably assumed that the Parties would not have entered into this Agreement without the invalid provisions.

Section 12.6Force Majeure. No Party (or any of its Affiliates) shall be held liable or responsible to the other Party (or any of its Affiliates) hereunder, or be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for failure or delay by such Party in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement when such failure or delay is caused by or results from causes beyond the reasonable control of the affected Party (or any of its Affiliates), including fire, floods, embargoes, war, acts of war (whether war be declared or not), insurrections, riots, civil commotions, acts of God, earthquakes, or omissions or delays in acting by any Governmental Authority (each, an “Event of Force Majeure”); provided, that the affected Party shall exert all reasonable efforts to eliminate, cure or overcome any such Event of Force Majeure and to resume performance of its obligations promptly. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that an Event of Force Majeure continues for a period in excess of [***], the affected Party shall promptly notify in writing the other Party of such Event of Force Majeure and within [***] of

Page 78

the other Party’s receipt of such notice, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith either (a) a resolution of the Event of Force Majeure, if possible or (b) an extension by mutual agreement of the time period to resolve, eliminate, cure or overcome such Event of Force Majeure.

Section 12.7Assignment and Change of Control.

12.7.1Assignment. Neither Party may assign its rights or, except as provided in Section 12.8 and Article VIII, delegate its obligations under this Agreement, whether by operation of law or otherwise, in whole or in part (including with respect to any CD38 SLT-A Fusion Protein or any Licensed Product) without the prior written consent of the other Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, except that Takeda shall have the right, without such consent, (a) to perform any or all of its obligations and exercise any or all of its rights under this Agreement through any of its Affiliates, Sublicensees or Distributors, and (b) assign any or all of its rights and delegate any or all of its obligations hereunder (including on a CD38 SLT-A Fusion Protein-by-CD38 SLT-A Fusion Protein or Licensed Product-by-Licensed Product basis) to any of its Affiliates or its or their Sublicensees or to any successor in interest (whether by merger, acquisition, asset purchase or otherwise) to all or substantially all of the business to which this Agreement (or the CD38 SLT-A Fusion Protein or Licensed Product(s)) relates; provided that Takeda shall provide written notice to MTEM within [***] after such assignment or delegation. Any permitted successor of Takeda or any permitted assignee of all of Takeda’s rights under this Agreement that has also assumed all of Takeda’s obligations hereunder in writing shall, upon any such succession or assignment and assumption, be deemed to be a party to this Agreement as though named herein in substitution for Takeda, whereupon Takeda shall cease to be a Party to this Agreement and shall cease to have any rights or obligations under this Agreement. All validly assigned rights of Takeda shall inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by, and all validly delegated obligations of Takeda shall be binding on and be enforceable against, the permitted successors and assigns of Takeda. Any attempted assignment or delegation in violation of this Section 12.7 shall be void and of no effect.

12.7.2 Change in Control. MTEM shall notify Takeda in writing as soon as possible after MTEM announces a Change in Control of MTEM (or if the Change in Control will not be publicly announced, then no later than [***] after the signing of the Change in Control). Takeda shall have the right, at its election in its sole discretion, to take one or more of the following actions by written notice to MTEM:

(a)disband any or all of the Joint Steering Committee, the Joint Development Committee and the Joint Manufacturing Committee and the Joint Patent Committee and any other committees or working groups, and terminate the activities of such committees;

(b)undertake any not yet completed Early Stage Program activities of MTEM, if any, solely and exclusively by (or on behalf of) itself (without any consultation with or approval by MTEM) and neither MTEM nor any of its Affiliates shall have the right to receive reports under Section 2.1.5 from and after the date of such Change in Control and in such case MTEM shall cease conducting such activities;

(c)require that (i) the Future Acquirer agree in writing to maintain at least the same level of diligence in performing its obligations under this Agreement, including its

Page 79

Portions of this Exhibit, indicated by the mark “[***],” were omitted and have been filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Registrant’s application requesting confidential treatment pursuant to Rule 24b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.


 

Manufacturing and its Co-Development payment obligations after the Change in Control, if the Co-Development Option has been exercised, at or above the level of diligence that had been applied prior to the Change in Control, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the Parties, and (ii) no employee of the Future Acquirer or such Future Acquirer’s Affiliates shall participate in or contribute to the performance of MTEM’s obligations in connection with the Early Stage Program, the Post Phase Ia Program or Manufacturing hereunder (and may not serve as the primary contact or as representative, member, delegate or attendee of the Joint Steering Committee, Joint Manufacturing Committee, the Joint Patent Committee or the Joint Development Committee (if such applicable committee remains constituted, at Takeda’s discretion)) or otherwise be provided or have access to any Confidential Information of Takeda.

Without limiting the foregoing, MTEM shall not disclose to, and shall implement appropriate protections to prevent the use by such Future Acquirer of any Program IP or other Product Information for uses that are the subject of an exclusive license to Takeda with respect to Development and Commercialization of Licensed Products.

Section 12.8Performance by Affiliates. The Parties recognize that each may perform some or all of its obligations under this Agreement through Affiliates; provided, that each Party shall remain responsible and be a guarantor of the performance by its Affiliates and shall cause its Affiliates to comply with the provisions of this Agreement in connection with such performance.

Section 12.9Independent Contractors. MTEM and Takeda each acknowledge that they shall be independent contractors and that the relationship between the Parties shall not constitute a partnership, joint venture, agency or any type of fiduciary relationship. Neither MTEM nor Takeda shall have the authority to make any statements, representations or commitments of any kind, or to take any action, which shall be binding on the other Party, without the prior consent of the other Party to do so.

Section 12.10Waiver and Non-Exclusion of Remedies. The waiver by either Party of any right hereunder or the failure to perform or of a breach by the other Party shall not be deemed a waiver of any other right hereunder or of any other breach or failure by said other Party whether of a similar nature or otherwise. The rights and remedies provided herein are cumulative and do not exclude any other right or remedy provided by Applicable Law or otherwise available, except as expressly set forth herein.

Section 12.11 Further Assurances. Each Party shall execute such additional documents as are necessary to effect the purposes of this Agreement.

Section 12.12 No Benefit to Third Parties. Except as provided in Article X, the covenants and agreements set forth in this Agreement are for the sole benefit of the Parties hereto and their successors and permitted assigns and they shall not be construed as conferring any rights on any other parties.

Section 12.13 Equitable Relief. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that the restrictions set forth in Section 3.9, Article VII and Article VIII are reasonable and necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the other Party and that such other Party would not have entered into this Agreement in the absence of such restrictions and that any breach or threatened breach of any provision of such Section or Articles may result in irreparable injury to such other Party for which there will be no adequate remedy at law. In the event of a breach or threatened

breach of any provision of such Section or Articles, the non-breaching Party shall be authorized and entitled to seek from any court of competent jurisdiction injunctive relief, whether preliminary or permanent, specific performance and an equitable accounting of all earnings, profits and other benefits arising from such breach, which rights shall be cumulative and in addition to any other rights or remedies to which such non-breaching Party may be entitled in law or equity. Both Parties agree to waive any requirement that the other (a) post a bond or other security as a condition for obtaining any such relief and (b) show irreparable harm, balancing of harms, consideration of the public interest or inadequacy of monetary damages as a remedy. Nothing in this Section 12.13 is intended or should be construed, to limit either Party’s right to equitable relief or any other remedy for a breach of any other provision of this Agreement.

Section 12.14 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument. Counterparts may be signed or delivered by facsimile or electronically scanned signature page.
