After the Manufacturing Technology Transfer, Licensee shall be responsible for the Manufacturing of API Bulk Drug Substance into Finished Drug Product for Commercialization in the Territory at its sole expense; provided, however, that Licensee shall only be permitted to Manufacture API Bulk Drug Substance into Finished Drug Product (a) through a CMO approved by the JMC or (b) solely if Licensee is able to conduct such Manufacturing in compliance with cGMP and all specifications provided by Agios from time to time, in-house.
Section 7.03 Manufacturing Technology Transfer. The Parties agree that discussions on a potential Manufacturing Technology Transfer shall not be commenced prior to [**]. At any time thereafter (or such earlier date as Agios may agree to in writing), the Parties will discuss at either Party’s request, through the JCC and the JMC, a Manufacturing Technology Transfer; provided, however, that, subject to Section 3.10, the final decision regarding whether such a transfer shall be made shall be made by [**]. Licensee shall pay to Agios an amount equal to [**] percent ([**]%) of Agios’ and its Affiliates’ reasonable, documented Out-of-Pocket Costs related to the Manufacturing Technology Transfer within [**] after receipt of any invoice therefor. Agios shall have the right, at any time upon reasonable advance notice, to inspect Licensee’s or the applicable CMO’s facilities in which Licensed Products are Manufactured.
Section 7.04 Specifications. Licensee shall ensure that any Manufacturing of Licensed Products conducted by or on behalf of any Licensee Entity is to specifications provided by Agios



from time to time, as may be further described in the Supply Agreements, and is consistent with the license granted to Licensee in Section 2.01(a)(iii).
Section 7.05 Serialization. Licensee shall ensure that any Manufacturing or distribution of Licensed Products by or on behalf of any Licensee Entity complies with any Serialization requirements required by applicable Law.
Section 7.06 Agios Supply Chain Security Requirements. Licensee commits to refrain, and to cause each Licensee Entity to refrain, from selling Licensed Product to unauthorized Third Parties or end users under Trade Control Laws such as any military and law enforcement parties of Sanctioned Countries, including but not limited to military hospitals. Licensee shall perform this Agreement in the Territory in compliance with Trade Control Laws as defined herein and within the limits set forth by any applicable OFAC Authorization. Licensee acknowledges and will ensure that any Licensee Entity shall comply in connection herewith with Trade Control Laws and the scope of any applicable OFAC Authorization. Licensee shall ensure that this duty to comply with such Trade Control Laws and the prohibitions or restrictions it involves will be reflected in the agreement to be entered into by Licensee and each Licensee Entity. Such OFAC Authorization or Trade Control Laws may restrict the selling of Licensed Products to specific Third Parties as mentioned therein. Licensee shall, and shall ensure that each Licensee Entity shall, comply with such restrictions imposed by the OFAC Authorization to the extent they apply to Third Parties to which it sells Licensed Products pursuant to this Agreement. While storing, handling or distributing the Licensed Products, Licensee Entities shall make all reasonable efforts to comply with Agios supply chain security requirements set forth in Exhibit E attached hereto, as may be amended by Agios from time to time, in order in particular to verify the security and integrity of the Licensed Products through all points of the supply chain. Licensee shall also ensure that any subcontractors used by Licensee in the distribution of the Licensed Products are duly informed of such requirements and make reasonable efforts to comply with these requirements. Licensee expressly agrees it will not do anything under this Agreement which could cause Agios to be in breach of Trade Control Laws. In the event that Licensee violates any Trade Control Law or the terms or conditions set by the OFAC Authorization to any Sanctioned Countries (or in the case of a Licensee Entity, the Licensee Entity commits such violation and Licensee fails to terminate its agreement with the Licensee Entity upon becoming aware of such violation), or breaches any provision in this Section 7.06 (Agios Supply Chain Security Requirements), Agios shall have the right to unilaterally terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 14.05 (Termination for Breach), except that the cure period set forth therein shall not apply.
Section 7.07 Supply Disruptions. If for any reason Agios is in good faith unable to supply any or all of the quantities of the Ivosidenib Materials required to be supplied under a Supply Agreement, it shall provide Licensee with reasonable prior written notice thereof, which shall include a reasonable explanation for such failure and, as soon as practicable, use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to appoint a Third Party designee for the supply of the Ivosidenib Materials to Licensee within the same terms and conditions thereof. In the event of a shortfall in Agios’ ability to supply the Ivosidenib Materials, it shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to provide Licensee with as much quantity of the Ivosidenib Materials as possible, considering Agios’ (and the other Agios Entities’) other requirements for the Ivosidenib Materials outside of the Territory. Agios shall use reasonable efforts to equitably allocate supply in the event of a shortfall. Reduction in Licensee’s sales of the Licensed Product due to Agios’



inability to supply in good faith any or all of the quantities of the Ivosidenib Materials required shall be taken into consideration when assessing Licensee’s obligations relating to Development and Commercialization. Subject to the Supply Agreements, in the event that, following a Manufacturing Technology Transfer, Licensee experiences difficulty in obtaining a sufficient quantity of Bulk Drug Product, Licensee shall promptly notify Agios and Agios may then supply Licensee with API Bulk Drug Substance, Bulk Drug Product or Brightstock, notwithstanding the foregoing in this Article VII.
ARTICLE VIII.  
 
PAYMENTS
Section 8.01 Upfront Payment. Within [**] following receipt of an invoice therefor, Licensee shall pay Agios a one-time, non-refundable, non-creditable upfront payment of Twelve Million Dollars ($12,000,000), by wire transfer.
Section 8.02 Technology Transfer Costs. Licensee shall pay to Agios the amounts described in Section 7.03 (Manufacturing Technology Transfer) in accordance with the procedures set forth in such Section.
Section 8.03 Development Costs.
(a) Except as expressly provided in this Agreement or the Development Plan, each Party shall bear its own costs incurred in the performance of its obligations under Article IV (Development).
(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 8.03(a), for any Joint Global Study, Licensee shall (i) bear all costs incurred by Licensee Entities and all Out-of-Pocket Costs incurred by Agios and its Affiliates in the performance of such Joint Global Study in the Territory; and in addition (ii) pay to Agios [**] percent ([**]%) of the Out-of-Pocket Costs incurred by Agios and its Affiliates set forth in clause (i) of this Section 8.03(b), as remuneration for Agios’ overhead costs directly and solely related to such Joint Global Study.
(c) Notwithstanding Licensee’s rights pursuant to Section 2.01(a) or Licensee’s access rights pursuant to Section 2.04 (Knowledge Transfer), Section 2.05(b) or Section 5.01(d), for any Global Study (A) for which Agios (and, with respect to the [**] Trial, the Third Party(ies) conducting the [**] Trial) requests any Licensee Entity to be the Local Registration Agent, (B) for which such Licensee Entity(ies) decided not to be the Local Registration Agent, and (C) which, therefore, is not a Joint Global Study (excluding the [**] Trial and the Global Studies included in the Ongoing Trials), except in instances of an Exception, Licensee shall not have access to any Agios Product Data or Agios Regulatory Documents arising out of such Global Study, unless and until Licensee pays to Agios [**] percent ([**]%) of Agios’ and its Affiliates’ Out-of-Pocket Costs incurred with regards to such Global Study on a worldwide basis. For purposes of this Section, “Exception” shall mean, (i) with respect to a given Global Study, that SDA will not accept such Global Study (with or without any bridging study(ies)) as sufficient to support an application for Regulatory Approval for the applicable Licensed Product in Mainland China and, instead, requires Licensee to conduct one or more alternative studies (other than any bridging study(ies)) to support the filing of an application for Regulatory Approval for such



Licensed Product in Mainland China or (ii) solely with respect to Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, that Agios will provide to Licensee the U.S. NDA dossier at no cost for use in Licensee’s applications for Regulatory Approval in Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. In the instance of an Exception falling under (i), above, Licensee shall not have access to any Agios Product Data or Agios Regulatory Documents arising out of such Global Study, unless and until Licensee pays to Agios [**] percent ([**]%) of Agios’ and its Affiliates’ Out-of-Pocket Costs incurred with regards to such Global Study on a worldwide basis. For clarity, at all times, safety data from both within and outside the Territory shall be shared between the Parties at no cost to the recipient Party in order to fulfill regulatory requirements, pursuant to a separate pharmacovigilance agreement to be agreed between the Parties as soon as reasonably practicable following the Effective Date. For the avoidance of doubt, if no Licensee Entity is requested to be the Local Registration Agent for the [**] Trial, then this Section 8.03(c) shall not apply to the [**] Trial and Agios shall transmit [**] to Licensee all data arising from the [**] Trial that Agios is required to provide to Licensee pursuant to Section 2.04(b).
(d) Within [**] following the end of each calendar quarter in which a Joint Global Study is being conducted, Agios shall invoice Licensee for the amounts set forth in Section 8.03(b) or Section 8.03(c). Licensee shall pay all amounts payable under such invoice within [**] after the end of each calendar quarter.
Section 8.04 Development Milestone Payment.
(a) Licensee shall make the non-refundable, non-creditable milestone payments to Agios set forth in the table below no later than [**] after the earliest date on which the corresponding milestone event has been achieved by any Licensee Entity with respect to any Licensed Product to achieve such milestone event, regardless of whether such milestone event was achieved for such Licensed Product in monotherapy or as part of a combination therapy. The references to achieving milestones in Mainland China set forth in this Section 8.04(a) are subject to Section 8.04(d).

(b) The milestone payments set forth in rows (i) through (viii) above shall be payable only once, upon the first achievement of such milestone event. The milestone set forth in row (ix) above shall be payable for each distinct indication for which any Licensee Entity receives Regulatory Approval in the Territory.
(c) If Licensee has not paid to Agios a milestone payment set forth in row (iii) above, and a milestone event set forth in row (iv) or (v) above occurs, then, upon the occurrence of such milestone event set forth in row (iv) or (v), Licensee shall pay to Agios [**] percent ([**]%) of the milestone payment set forth in row (iii), with the remaining [**] percent ([**]%) to be due upon achievement of [**]. If Licensee has not paid to Agios a milestone payment set forth in row (vi) above, and a milestone event set forth in row (vii) above occurs, then, upon the occurrence of such milestone event set forth in row (vii), Licensee shall pay to Agios [**] percent ([**]%) of the milestone payment set forth in row (vi), with the remaining [**] percent ([**]%) to be due upon achievement of [**].
(d) In the event that Licensee achieves a milestone set forth in rows (iii) through (ix) in a Jurisdiction other than [**], Licensee shall pay to Agios [**] percent ([**]%) multiplied by the applicable milestone payment upon such achievement, with the remaining [**] percent ([**]%) due upon achievement of the applicable milestone in [**].
(e) The partial milestone payment provisions set forth in both of the foregoing Sections 8.04(c) and 8.04(d) may apply to a given milestone payment in accordance with the terms of such Sections. In such event, the unpaid remainders of such milestone payments shall become payable in accordance with the principles set forth in such Sections; provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, such principles are intended to apply such that, once the applicable condition for payment of a milestone remainder is satisfied, the remainder amount to be paid,



when aggregated with the prior partial payment under the applicable provision, shall cumulatively add to the milestone payment amount for such milestone that would have been payable had the applicable partial payment provision never applied (i.e., the application of such partial payment provisions shall not result in milestone payments that are larger or smaller following the payment of such remainder amounts than the full milestone payment amounts that would have been payable had the milestone payments been earned in full, assuming the applicable payment conditions are satisfied), as demonstrated in the illustrative examples attached hereto as Schedule 8.04(e).
(f) Upon achievement by any Licensee Entity of any of the milestone events listed above, Licensee shall promptly (but in no event more than [**] after such achievement) notify Agios of such achievement.
Section 8.05 Sales Milestone Payments. Licensee shall pay to Agios the following non-refundable and non-creditable amounts after the first achievement of aggregate Net Sales of all Licensed Products in the Territory in a calendar year that meet or exceed the minimum annual Net Sales thresholds set forth below, which payment shall be made no later than [**] after the end of the calendar quarter in which the applicable threshold(s) is(are) met or exceeded:

Each milestone payment in this Section 8.05 (Sales Milestone Payments) shall be payable only once upon the first achievement of such milestone in a given calendar year and no amounts shall be due for subsequent or repeated achievements of such milestone in subsequent calendar years. For clarity, the Net Sales of all Licensed Products in a calendar year shall be aggregated for purposes of determining whether any milestone in the table above has been met. If more than one of the milestones set forth in the table above are first achieved in a single calendar year, then Licensee shall pay to Agios in such calendar year all of the payments corresponding to all of the milestones achieved in such calendar year under this Section 8.05 (Sales Milestone Payments).
Section 8.06 Royalties.



(a) Subject to the remainder of this Section 8.06 (Royalties), Licensee shall pay Agios the following royalties on aggregate Net Sales of all Licensed Products, at an incremental royalty rate determined by aggregate annual Net Sales of all Licensed Products in each calendar year during the Term in the Territory:

Portion of Annual Net Sales of all
Licensed Products
Royalty
Less than or equal to $[**]15%  
Greater than $[**] and less than or equal to $[**][**]%
Greater than $[**]19%  

By way of example and not limitation, if Net Sales of all Licensed Products in a calendar year are [**] Dollars ($[**]), then the royalty shall be [**].
(b) Running royalties paid by Licensee under this Section 8.06 (Royalties) shall be paid on a Licensed Product-by-Licensed Product and Jurisdiction-by-Jurisdiction basis until the latest of (i) the expiration of the last-to-expire Valid Claim in the Agios Patent Rights or Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights that Covers such Licensed Product in the Field in such Jurisdiction, (ii) expiration of marketing or regulatory exclusivity with respect to such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction, or (iii) ten (10) years from the First Commercial Sale of such Licensed Product in the Field in such Jurisdiction (each, a “Royalty Term”). Following the expiration of the Royalty Term with respect to a particular Licensed Product in the Field in a Jurisdiction (but not following an earlier termination of this Agreement), the licenses granted by Agios to Licensee pursuant to Section 2.01(a) with respect to such Licensed Product in the Field in such Jurisdiction shall be perpetual, irrevocable, fully-paid and royalty-free, and Net Sales of such Licensed Product shall no longer be included in the aggregate Net Sales calculation in Section 8.06(a) but shall be included in calculations of Net Sales for the purposes of Section 8.05 (Sales Milestones Payments).
(c) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 8.06(a), on a Jurisdiction-by-Jurisdiction basis, during any period in such Jurisdiction in which (i) the sale of a given Licensed Product would not infringe a Valid Claim of the Agios Patent Rights or a Valid Claim of the Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights and (ii) there is no marketing or regulatory exclusivity with respect to such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction, Licensee shall pay royalty rates for sales of such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction that shall be set at [**] percent ([**]%) of the applicable royalty rate determined in accordance with Section 8.06(a).
(d) In the event that Licensee or Agios obtains, after the Effective Date, a license under, or other rights to, Patent Rights or Know-How from any Third Party(ies) that are necessary in order to Commercialize a given Licensed Product in the Field in a given



Jurisdiction, [**] percent ([**]%) of any and all royalty payments actually paid directly, or indirectly in accordance with Section 2.06(a), as applicable, under such Third Party licenses by Licensee or its Affiliates for sales of such Licensed Product in the Field in such Jurisdiction in a given calendar quarter shall be creditable against the royalty payments due to Agios by Licensee for sales of such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction in such calendar quarter.
(e) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 8.06(a), on a Jurisdiction-by-Jurisdiction basis, during any period in such Jurisdiction in which (i) the sale of a given Licensed Product would infringe a Valid Claim of the Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights but not a Valid Claim of the Agios Patent Rights and (ii) there is no marketing or regulatory exclusivity with respect to such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction, Licensee shall pay royalty rates for sales of such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction that shall be set at [**] percent ([**]%) of the applicable royalty rate determined in accordance with Section 8.06(a).
(f) Notwithstanding the provisions of the above subparts (c), (d) and (e) of this Section, in no event shall the total royalty rate reduction(s) allowable under such subparts with respect to a given Licensed Product in a given Jurisdiction in a given calendar quarter, alone or together, lead to a reduction of more than [**] percent ([**]%) of the applicable royalty rate determined in accordance with Section 8.06(a).
Section 8.07 Royalty Payments and Reports.
(a) On a Licensed Product-by-Licensed Product and Jurisdiction-by-Jurisdiction basis, until the expiration of the Royalty Term with respect to such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction, Licensee agrees to (i) send an email to Agios within [**] after the end of each calendar quarter with a good faith estimate of the amount of the royalties owed with respect to such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction in such calendar quarter and (ii) provide quarterly written reports to Agios within [**] after the end of each calendar quarter, covering all Net Sales of such Licensed Product in such Jurisdiction by any Licensee Entity, each such written report stating for the period in question the amount of gross sales and Net Sales of each Licensed Product in each Jurisdiction in the Territory during the applicable calendar quarter (including such amounts expressed in local currency and as converted to Dollars) and a calculation of the amount of royalty payment due on such Net Sales for such calendar quarter.
(b) Licensee shall make the royalty payments due hereunder within [**] after the end of each calendar quarter.
Section 8.08 Financial Responsibility for Licensee In-License Agreements. Licensee shall be solely responsible for payment of any and all amounts due to any Third Party under or in connection with any Licensee In-License Agreement.
Section 8.09 Recordkeeping.
(a) Each Licensee Entity shall keep full, clear and accurate records of Licensed Products that are made, used or sold under this Agreement and of any costs borne by such Licensee Entity for any Joint Global Study, in accordance with the Accounting Standards consistently applied, for a period of at least [**] after the end of the calendar year to which the records relate, setting forth the sales of Licensed Products in sufficient detail to enable royalties and other amounts payable to Agios hereunder to be determined. Each Licensee Entity further



agrees to permit its books and records to be examined by an independent accounting firm selected by Agios and reasonably acceptable to Licensee no more than [**], to verify any reports and payments delivered under this Agreement during the [**] most recently-ended calendar years, upon reasonable notice (which shall be no less than [**] prior notice) and during regular business hours and subject to a reasonable confidentiality agreement. The Parties shall reconcile any underpayment or overpayment within [**] after the accounting firm delivers the results of any audit. Such examination is to be made at the expense of Agios, except in the event that the results of the audit reveal an underpayment by Licensee of [**] percent ([**]%) or more during the period being audited, in which case reasonable audit fees for such examination shall be paid by Licensee.
(b) Agios shall keep full, clear and accurate records of costs of performance of the Out-of-Pocket Costs for each Global Study and Out-of-Pocket Costs incurred in accordance with Section 2.04(a) and Section 7.03 (Manufacturing Technology Transfer), in accordance with the Accounting Standards consistently applied, for a period of at least [**] after the end of the calendar year to which the records relate, in sufficient detail to enable Licensee’s payment obligations under Section 8.03(b), Section 8.03(c), Section 2.04(a) and Section 7.03 (Manufacturing Technology Transfer) to be determined. Agios further agrees to permit its books and records to be examined by an independent accounting firm selected by Licensee and reasonably acceptable to Agios no more than [**], to verify any invoices delivered under Section 8.03(d), Section 2.04(a) or Section 7.03 (Manufacturing Technology Transfer) during the [**] most recently-ended calendar years, upon reasonable notice (which shall be no less than [**] prior notice) and during regular business hours and subject to a reasonable confidentiality agreement. The Parties shall reconcile any underpayment or overpayment within [**] after the accounting firm delivers the results of any audit. Such examination is to be made at the expense of Licensee, except in the event that the results of the audit reveal an overcharging by Agios of [**] percent ([**]%) or more during the period being audited, in which case reasonable audit fees for such examination shall be paid by Agios.
Section 8.10 Currency Conversion. Wherever it is necessary to convert currencies for Net Sales invoiced in a currency other than the Dollar, such conversion shall be made into Dollars at the conversion rate existing in the United States (as reported in the Wall Street Journal) on the last Business Day of the applicable calendar quarter or, if such rate is unavailable, a substitute therefor reasonably selected by Agios. All payments due to Agios under this Agreement shall be made without deduction of exchange, collection or other charges. Once the amount of Net Sales paid to Agios in respect of a particular calendar quarter has been converted into Dollars, such amount of Dollars shall be used for the purpose of calculating the total amount of Net Sales during the calendar year that includes such calendar quarter.
Section 8.11 Methods of Payment. All payments due to Agios under this Agreement shall be made by Licensee (and not any Affiliate of Licensee) in Dollars by wire transfer to a bank account of Agios (and not any Affiliate of Agios). In the event of any action by, or change in the circumstances of, a Party (including a Change in Control of such Party) that results in an increased or additional tax payable by the other Party, such first Party shall reimburse such other Party for such increase.
Section 8.12 Taxes. Without prejudice to the provisions of Section 8.11, Agios shall be liable for all United States taxes imposed upon, or measured by, net income (including interest



thereon) derived from its receipt of any payments made by Licensee to Agios under this Agreement. Licensee shall indemnify and hold Agios harmless from and against all other taxes imposed upon, or measured by, such payments, and shall make all such payments without deduction or withholding of any taxes except to the extent required by applicable Laws. If applicable Laws require the deduction or withholding of such taxes, Licensee shall deduct, withhold and timely pay over such taxes as required by applicable Laws, and shall submit to Agios appropriate proof of payment of the withheld taxes as well as the official receipts within a reasonable period of time. In the event of any such deduction or withholding of taxes imposed by or under color of any Laws in force in Mainland China on account of payments from Licensee to Agios hereunder, such payments shall be increased so that, after all required deductions or withholding of tax (including on such increased amounts) have been made, Agios receives the same amount as would have been payable hereunder if no such deduction or withholding had been required or made. In the case of any such deduction or withholding of taxes by any other Governmental Authority, no increased payment described in the preceding sentence shall be required.
Section 8.13 Late Payments. Interest shall be payable by Licensee on any amounts payable to Agios under this Agreement which are not paid by the due date for payment. All interest shall accrue and be calculated on a daily basis (both before and after any judgment) at a rate per month equal to the lesser of (a) [**] percentage points above the then-current “prime rate” in effect published in The Wall Street Journal or (b) the maximum rate permissible under applicable Law, for the period from the due date for payment until the date of actual payment. The payment of such interest shall not limit Agios from exercising any other rights it may have as a consequence of the lateness of any payment.
Section 8.14 Invoices. Agios acknowledges that Licensee requires invoices for all payments due under this Agreement, which invoices may be delivered by email to [**] (which email address may be changed by Licensee from time to time upon written notice to Agios), with a hard copy confirmed by mailing to:

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
Section 9.01 Ownership.
(a) Ownership of the Agios Technology and Agios Combination Therapy Technology shall remain vested at all times in Agios.
(b) Ownership of the Licensee Technology shall remain vested at all times in Licensee.
(c) Ownership of Joint Combination Therapy Technology shall be vested jointly in Agios and Licensee. Each Party shall promptly disclose to the other Party any Joint Combination Therapy Technology upon becoming aware thereof, but in any event no later than [**] after the identification, conception, discovery, authorship, development or reduction to practice thereof and hereby assigns to the other Party, subject to Section 2.01(a) and Section 2.01(b), a one-half undivided interest in such Joint Combination Therapy Technology. Each Party shall, without cost to the other Party, obtain all necessary assignment documents for the other Party to give effect to the one-half undivided ownership described above, render all signatures that shall be necessary for the relevant patent filings and assist the other Party in all other reasonable ways that are necessary for the filing, prosecution, issuance and maintenance of the Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights by the other Party as set forth in Section 9.02(c).
(d) Ownership of Know-How, including inventions (whether or not patentable), and Patent Rights arising during the Term that relate to Licensed Products, other than Joint Combination Therapy Technology, shall (to the extent allowable under Chinese Law, if Chinese Law applies) be vested solely in Agios. Licensee shall promptly disclose to Agios any such Know-How, including inventions (whether or not patentable), and Patent Rights upon becoming aware thereof, but in any event no later than [**] after the identification, conception, discovery, authorship, development or reduction to practice thereof and (to the extent allowable under Chinese Law, if Chinese Law applies) hereby assigns to Agios all right, title and interest in such Know-How, including inventions (whether or not patentable), and Patent Rights. In the case of such assignment, Licensee shall, without cost to Agios, obtain all necessary assignment documents for Agios, render all signatures that shall be necessary for the relevant patent filings and assist Agios in all other reasonable ways that are necessary for the filing, prosecution, issuance and maintenance of the Agios Patent Rights assigned to Agios pursuant to this Section



9.01(d). In the event that Chinese Law applies with respect to any Know-How, including inventions (whether or not patentable), or Patent Rights arising during the Term that relate to Licensed Products (other than Joint Combination Therapy Technology), then, to the extent that Chinese Law prohibits the assignment of such Know-How, including inventions, or Patent Rights to Agios, in lieu of the assignment of such Know-How, including inventions, or Patent Rights to Agios, Licensee hereby grants to Agios as broad, exclusive and unrestricted a license to, with the broadest enforcement rights with respect to, such Know-How, including inventions, or Patent Rights as may be allowable under Chinese Law. In such case, such Know-How, including inventions, shall be deemed Agios Know-How, and such Patent Rights shall be deemed Agios Patent Rights, hereunder, and Licensee shall provide to Agios any necessary or reasonably requested documentation reflecting such license and shall assist Agios in all other reasonable ways that are necessary for Agios to enjoy and exploit or enforce any such Agios Know-How and Agios Patent Rights.
(e) For purposes of determination of ownership hereunder, inventorship shall be determined according to United States patent Laws.
(f) Each Party shall be solely responsible for payments due under applicable inventor remuneration Laws in any Jurisdiction to each inventor as to any Patent Right described in the foregoing Sections 9.01(a)-(d) to which such Party is assigned an ownership interest by such inventor.
Section 9.02 Prosecution of Patent Rights.
(a) Subject to the terms of each In-License Agreement:
(i) Agios shall have the first right, but not the obligation, to file, prosecute and maintain all Agios Patent Rights. Licensee shall reimburse Agios for all Out-of-Pocket Costs incurred by Agios or any of its Affiliates after the Effective Date in filing, prosecuting and maintaining Agios Patent Rights (for the avoidance of doubt, including amounts paid by Agios after the Effective Date to any Third Party counterparty under any In-License Agreement with respect to such Third Party counterparty’s filing, prosecution and maintenance of applicable Agios Patent Rights), within [**] after receiving an invoice therefor. If Agios elects not to, or is unable to, file, prosecute or maintain any Agios Patent Right in any Jurisdiction, Agios shall give Licensee prompt notice thereof, and, in such cases, shall permit Licensee and its Affiliates at Licensee’s own expense to take such actions itself. In such case, (A) Licensee shall consult with Agios in order to allow its actions to be consistent with Agios’ global patent strategy for Licensed Products, and (B) Agios shall execute such documents and perform such acts as may be reasonably necessary for Licensee to perform such actions.
(ii) The Party prosecuting an Agios Patent Right in accordance with Section 9.02(a)(i) shall consult with the other Party on the preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance of such Agios Patent Right, and shall take into consideration the commercial strategy of (A) if such prosecuting Party is Agios, Licensee in the Territory, and (B) if such prosecuting Party is License, Agios outside the Territory. The prosecuting Party shall furnish the other Party with copies of each document relevant to such preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance at least [**] prior (or such shorter period prior if it is not reasonably practicable to



provide such copies [**] prior) to filing such document or making any payment due thereunder to allow for review and comment by such other Party and shall consider in good faith timely comments from such other Party thereon. The prosecuting Party shall also furnish the other Party with copies of all final filings and responses made to any patent authority with respect to the Agios Patent Rights being prosecuted by such Party in a timely manner following submission thereof.
(iii) In preparing, filing, prosecuting and maintaining any Agios Patent Right, in no event shall Licensee take any position that is contrary to or detrimental to the scope or enforceability of any other Agios Patent Right or any Patent Rights owned or otherwise controlled by Agios outside of the Territory that are counterparts to any Agios Patent Rights.
(b) Subject to the terms of each Licensee In-License Agreement:
(i) Licensee shall have the first right, but not the obligation, to file, prosecute and maintain all Licensee Patent Rights at its sole expense. If Licensee elects not to, or is unable to, file, prosecute or maintain any Licensee Patent Right in any Jurisdiction, Licensee shall give Agios prompt notice thereof, and, in such cases, shall permit Agios at Agios’ own expense to take such actions itself. In such case, (A) Agios shall consult with Licensee in order to allow its actions to be consistent with Licensee’s overall patent strategy for Licensed Products in the Territory, and (B) Licensee shall execute such documents and perform such acts as may be reasonably necessary for Agios to perform such actions.

The prosecuting Party shall furnish the other Party with copies of each document relevant to such preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance at least [**] prior (or such shorter period prior if it is not reasonably practicable to provide such copies [**] prior) to filing such document or making any payment due thereunder to allow for review and comment by such other Party and shall consider in good faith timely comments from such other Party thereon. The prosecuting Party shall also furnish the other Party with copies of all final filings and responses made to any patent authority with respect to the Licensee Patent Rights being prosecuted by such Party in a timely manner following submission thereof.
(iii) In preparing, filing, prosecuting and maintaining Licensee Patent Rights, in no event shall Licensee take any position that is contrary to or detrimental to the scope or enforceability of any Agios Patent Rights or any Patent Rights owned or otherwise controlled by Agios outside of the Territory that are counterparts to any Agios Patent Rights.
(c) Subject to the terms of each In-License Agreement and Licensee In-License Agreement:



(i) Licensee shall have the first right, but not the obligation, to file, prosecute and maintain all Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights in the Territory and Agios shall have the first right, but not the obligation, to file, prosecute and maintain all Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights outside the Territory. If the Party with such first right elects not to, or is unable to, file, prosecute or maintain any Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights in any country or jurisdiction, such Party shall give the other Party prompt notice and, in such case, shall permit the other Party at such other Party’s own expense to take such actions itself. In such case, (A) such other Party shall consult with such first Party in order to allow its actions to be consistent with such first Party’s overall patent strategy, and (B) such first Party shall execute such documents and perform such acts as may be reasonably necessary for such other Party to perform such actions. The Parties shall each bear [**] percent ([**]%) of all Out-of-Pocket Costs incurred by either Party or any of its Affiliates after the Effective Date in filing, prosecuting and maintaining such Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights inside and outside the Territory in accordance with the first sentence of this clause (i). The reimbursing Party shall reimburse such costs within [**] after receiving an invoice from the other Party therefor.
(ii) Each Party shall consult with the other Party on the preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance of all Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights, shall furnish the other Party with copies of each document relevant to such preparation, filing, prosecution and maintenance at least [**] prior (or such shorter period prior if it is not reasonably practicable to provide such copies [**] prior) to filing such document or making any payment due thereunder to allow for review and comment by the other Party and shall consider in good faith timely comments from the other Party thereon. Each Party shall also furnish the other Party with copies of all final filings and responses made to any patent authority with respect to the Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights in a timely manner following submission thereof.
(iii) In preparing, filing, prosecuting and maintaining Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights, in no event shall Licensee take any position that is contrary to or detrimental to the scope or enforceability of any Agios Patent Rights or any Patent Rights owned or otherwise controlled by Agios outside of the Territory that are counterparts to any Agios Patent Rights.
Section 9.03 Enforcement and Defense. Subject to the terms of each In-License Agreement:
(a) If either Party becomes aware of any Third Party activity, including any Development activity (whether or not an exemption from infringement liability for such Development activity is available under applicable Law), that infringes (or that is directed to the Development of a product that would infringe) an Agios Patent Right or a Joint Combination Therapy Patent Right, or that misappropriates any Agios Know-How, Joint Combination Therapy Know-How or Joint Combination Therapy Invention, then the Party becoming aware of such activity shall give prompt written notice to the other Party regarding such alleged infringement or misappropriation (collectively, “Infringement Activity”).
(b) Agios shall have the first right, but not the obligation, to attempt to resolve any Infringement Activity anywhere in the world by commercially appropriate steps at its own



expense, including the filing of an infringement or misappropriation suit using counsel of its own choice. If Agios fails to resolve such Infringement Activity in the Territory or, solely with respect to Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights, outside the Territory, but solely where the allegedly infringing product is or would be competitive with [**], or to initiate a suit with respect thereto by the date that is [**] before any deadline for taking action to avoid any loss of material enforcement rights or remedies, then, with Agios’ written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), Licensee shall have the right, but not the obligation, to attempt to resolve such Infringement Activity by commercially appropriate steps at its own expense, including the filing of an infringement or misappropriation suit using counsel of its own choice.
(c) Any amounts recovered by a Party as a result of an action pursuant to Section 9.03(b), whether by settlement or judgment, shall be allocated first to pay to [**] with respect to such enforcement action, and any remaining amount shall be retained by [**].
(d) If a Third Party in the context of an enforcement action under this Section 9.03 asserts that a Joint Combination Therapy Patent Right is invalid or unenforceable, then the Party responsible for such enforcement action will be responsible for defending against such assertion. If a Third Party asserts that an Agios Patent Right is invalid or unenforceable, then Agios shall have the first right to defend against such assertion. If a Third Party outside of an enforcement action under this Section 9.03 asserts that a Joint Combination Therapy Patent Right is invalid or unenforceable, then Agios shall have the sole right, but not the obligation, outside the Territory, and Licensee shall have the first right, but not the obligation, within the Territory, to defend against such assertion (such Party with a sole or first right to defend being known as the “First Defending Party”) and, at the First Defending Party’s request and expense, the other Party shall provide reasonable assistance in defending against such Third Party assertion. The First Defending Party shall (i) keep the other Party reasonably informed regarding such assertion and such defense (including by providing such other Party with drafts of each filing a reasonable period before the deadline for such filing and promptly providing such other Party with copies of all final filings and correspondence), (ii) consult with the other Party on such defense, and (iii) consider in good faith all comments from the other Party regarding such defense. The non-defending Party shall have the right to join as a party to such defense and participate with its own counsel at its sole expense; provided, however, that the First Defending Party shall retain control of such defense. Should Agios (with respect to Agios Patent Rights or Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights within the Territory, including in the context of an applicable enforcement action) or Licensee (with respect to Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights within the Territory or in the context of an applicable enforcement action) decide that it is not, or is no longer, interested in controlling such defense with respect to a Joint Combination Therapy Patent Right, it shall promptly (and in any event by the date that is [**] before any deadline for taking action to avoid any loss of material rights) provide the other Party written notice of this decision. The other Party may, upon written notice to such first Party, assume such defense at such other Party’s sole expense.
(e) In any event, at the request and expense of the Party bringing an infringement or misappropriation action under Section 9.03(b) or defending an action under Section 9.03(d), the



other Party shall provide reasonable assistance in any such action (including entering into a common interest agreement if reasonably deemed necessary by any Party) and be joined as a party to the suit if necessary for the initiating or defending Party to bring or continue such suit. Neither Party may settle any action or proceeding brought under Section 9.03(b) or Section 9.03(d), or knowingly take any other action in the course thereof, in a manner that materially adversely affects the other Party’s interest in any Agios Patent Rights or Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights or counterpart Patent Rights outside of the Territory without the written consent of such other Party. Each Party shall always have the right to be represented by counsel of its own selection and its own expense in any suit or other action instituted by the other Party pursuant to Section 9.03(b) or Section 9.03(d).
Section 9.04 Defense of Third Party Infringement and Misappropriation Claims. Subject to the terms of each In-License Agreement:
(a) If a Third Party asserts that a Patent Right or other right Controlled by it in the Territory is infringed or misappropriated by a Party’s activities under this Agreement or a Party becomes aware of a Patent Right or other right that might form the basis for such a claim, the Party first obtaining knowledge of such a claim or such potential claim shall immediately provide the other Party with notice thereof and the related facts in reasonable detail. The Parties shall discuss what commercially appropriate steps, if any, to take to avoid infringement or misappropriation of said Third Party Patent Right or other right controlled by such Third Party in the Territory.
(b) If a Third Party asserts that a Patent Right or other right Controlled by it in the Territory is infringed or misappropriated by a Party’s activities under this Agreement, then such Party shall have the first right, but not the obligation, to defend against such assertion and, at such Party’s request and expense, the other Party will provide reasonable assistance in defending against such Third Party assertion. Such Party shall keep the other Party reasonably informed regarding such assertion and such defense.
Section 9.05 Patent Term Extensions. Subject to the terms of each In-License Agreement, Agios shall have the first right to select the appropriate Agios Patent Rights and Licensee shall have the first right to select the appropriate Joint Combination Therapy Patent Rights for filing to obtain patent term extensions, including supplementary protection certificates and any other extensions that are now available or become available in the future, based on Regulatory Approvals for Licensed Products in the Field in the Territory, and the selecting Party shall consult with the other Party with respect to such decisions and shall consider the comments and concerns of the other Party in good faith. Each Party shall cooperate with the other Party in gaining any such patent term extensions, including by signing all necessary papers. If Licensee elects not to, or is unable to, file to obtain any patent term extension described in this Section 9.05 (Patent Term Extensions), it shall give Agios prompt notice thereof, and, in such cases, shall permit Agios at Agios’ own expense to take such actions itself. If Agios elects not, or is unable to, to file to obtain any patent term extension described in this Section 9.05 (Patent Term Extensions), it shall give Licensee prompt notice thereof, and, in such cases, Licensee may, with Agios’ prior written consent (which may not be unreasonably withheld), take such actions itself at its own expense. In such case, such first Party shall execute such documents and perform such acts as may be reasonably necessary for such other Party to perform such actions. In seeking or



obtaining patent term extensions (including supplementary protection certificates and any other extensions that are now available or become available in the future) with respect to Agios Patent Rights, in no event shall Licensee take any position that is contrary to or detrimental to the scope or enforceability of any other Agios Patent Right.

It is understood that each Party and, in the case of Agios, the Agios Entities, and, in the case of Licensee, the Licensee Entities, shall have the right to disclose such information if such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with applicable Laws or requirements of any applicable Regulatory Authority.

The Parties recognize that each Party may from time to time desire to issue press releases and make other public statements or public disclosures (each, a “Public Statement”) in respect of this Agreement, including the Development or Commercialization of Licensed Products in the Territory.  If Licensee desires to make a Public Statement, it shall provide Agios a copy of such Public Statement at least [**] prior to the date it desires to make such public disclosure. Licensee shall not issue a Public Statement without Agios’ prior written approval, which advance approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Agios shall provide to Licensee a preliminary draft of any Public Statement that it intends to make on a global basis with respect to Development of Licensed Products at least [**] in advance of such public disclosure and shall provide a final draft of such Public Statement at least [**] in advance of such public disclosure; provided that, if such Public Statement includes data owned by Licensee with respect to a Local Study or Pre-Clinical Research conducted by Licensee in the Territory, Agios shall obtain Licensee’s prior written approval to include such data, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Once any public statement or public disclosure has been approved in accordance with this Section 12.04 (Publicity), then the applicable Party may appropriately communicate information contained in such permitted statement or disclosure. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 12.04 (Publicity), nothing in this Section 12.04 (Publicity) shall be deemed to limit either Party’s rights under Section 12.03 (Permitted Disclosures) or either Party’s ability to issue press releases or make other public statements or public disclosures required by applicable Law or rules of a nationally or internationally recognized securities exchange or Nasdaq.
Section 12.05 Publications. Agios acknowledges Licensee’s interest in publishing certain key results of Licensee’s Development and Commercialization of Licensed Products in the Field in the Territory.  Licensee recognizes the mutual interest in obtaining valid patent protection and Agios’ interest in protecting its proprietary information. Consequently, except for disclosures permitted pursuant to Section 12.02 (Exceptions), Section 12.03 (Permitted Disclosures) or Section 12.04 (Publicity), if Licensee wishes to make a publication or public presentation with respect to its Development or Commercialization of Licensed Products in the Field in the Territory, Licensee shall deliver to Agios a copy of the proposed written publication or presentation at least [**] prior to submission for publication or presentation. Agios shall have the right (a) to require modifications to the publication or presentation for patent or any other business reasons, and Licensee will remove all of Agios’ Confidential Information if requested by Agios, and (b) to require a reasonable delay in publication or presentation in order to protect patentable information. If Agios requests a delay, then Licensee shall delay submission or presentation for a period of [**] (or such shorter period as may be mutually agreed by the Parties) to enable Agios to file patent applications protecting Agios’ rights in such information.
Section 12.06 Injunctive Relief. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that there may be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations under this Article XII (Confidentiality), that any such breach may result in irreparable harm to the other Party and, therefore, that upon any such breach or any threat thereof, such other Party may seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever remedies it might have at law, without the necessity of showing actual damages.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION; GOVERNING LAW
Section 15.01 Arbitration. Subject to Section 15.01(e) (Intellectual Property Disputes) and Section 15.01(d), any disputes, claims or controversies in connection with this Agreement, including any questions regarding its formation, existence, validity, enforceability, performance, interpretation, breach or termination, that are not resolved in accordance with Article III (Governance) and are not subject to a Party’s final decision-making authority in accordance with Article III (Governance) shall be referred to and finally resolved by binding arbitration under the International Chamber of Commerce Rules of Arbitration (the “Rules”), which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference into this Section 15.01 (Arbitration), in the manner described below:
(a) Arbitration Request. If a Party intends to begin an arbitration to resolve a dispute arising under this Agreement, such Party shall provide written notice (the “Arbitration Request”) to the other Party of such intention and the issues for resolution. Any such dispute that is not to be resolved in accordance with Section 15.01(d) or Section 15.01(e) shall be resolved in accordance with Section 15.01(c); any such dispute that relates to a dispute, claim or controversy with respect to whether or not Agios has final decision-making authority pursuant to Section 3.10(a)(iv) (but not, for the avoidance of doubt, as to the exercise of such final decision-making authority) shall be resolved in accordance with Section 15.01(d); and any such dispute that relates to validity or enforceability of a Patent Right shall be resolved in accordance with Section 15.01(e).
(b) Additional Issues. Within [**] after the receipt of an Arbitration Request, the other Party may, by written notice, add additional issues for resolution.
(c) General Arbitration Procedure for Disputes. The seat of arbitration will be in New York, New York unless another venue is agreed upon by Parties, and it will be conducted in the English language.

Unless agreed by the Parties to choose a single common arbitrator, the arbitration will be conducted by three arbitrators, one appointed by each Party, according to the Rules. The two arbitrators appointed by the Parties will by mutual agreement appoint the third arbitrator, who will preside over the arbitration. Any dispute or omission regarding the appointment of the arbitrators by the Parties, as well as the choice of the third arbitrator, will be resolved by the International Chamber of Commerce (“ICC”). The arbitral award shall be final, definitive and binding on the Parties and their successors. The Parties reserve the right to apply to a competent judicial court to obtain urgent remedies to protect rights before establishment of the arbitration panel, without such recourse being considered as a waiver of arbitration. Except as otherwise determined by the arbitrators, the Parties shall each bear half of the fees and expenses of the arbitrators and the ICC,



and each Party shall bear the costs and fees of its attorneys. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed as preventing either Party from seeking injunctive relief (or any other provisional remedy) from any court having jurisdiction over the Parties and the subject matter of the dispute as necessary to protect either Party’s name, Confidential Information, Know-How, intellectual property rights or any other proprietary right or otherwise to avoid irreparable harm. If the issues in dispute involve scientific or technical matters, any arbitrators chosen hereunder shall have educational training or experience sufficient to demonstrate a reasonable level of knowledge in the field of biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The Parties intend that each award rendered by an Arbitrator hereunder shall be entitled to recognition and enforcement under the United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Arbitral Awards (New York, 1958).
(d) Baseball Arbitration Procedure for Certain Disputes. The procedures set forth in Section 15.01(c) shall apply to disputes, claims or controversies regarding whether or not Agios has final decision-making authority pursuant to Section 3.10(a)(iv) (but not, for the avoidance of doubt, as to the exercise of such final decision-making authority). Within [**] following the selection of the third arbitrator, each Party shall provide the arbitrators and the other Party with a written report setting forth its position with respect to the applicable dispute, and may submit a revised or updated report within [**] of receiving the other Party’s report. The arbitrators may request oral submissions by each Party, and each Party shall have the right to be present during oral submissions by the other Party. Within [**] after the last submission of the written reports or any oral submissions, the arbitrators shall select one of the Party’s positions as their final decision by majority vote of the arbitrators, and shall not have the authority to modify either Party’s position or render any substantive decision other than to so select the position of a Party as set forth in its respective written report.
(e) Intellectual Property Disputes. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, a dispute between the Parties relating to the validity or enforceability of any Patent Right shall not be subject to arbitration and shall be submitted to a court or patent office of competent jurisdiction in the relevant country or jurisdiction in which such patent was issued or, if not issued, in which the underlying patent application was filed.
Section 15.02 Choice of Law. This Agreement and all amendments, modifications, alterations, or supplements hereto, and the rights of the Parties hereunder, shall be construed under and governed by the Laws of the State of New York, exclusive of its conflicts of laws principles.
Section 15.03 Language. This Agreement has been prepared in the English language and the English language shall control its interpretation. All consents, notices, reports and other written documents to be delivered or provided by a Party under this Agreement shall be in the English language, and, in the event of any conflict between the provisions of any document and the English language translation thereof, the terms of the English language translation shall control.
ARTICLE XVI.

(iv) If Licensee or any of its Affiliates notifies Agios in writing that it or its relevant Affiliate intends to divest such Competing Product or Restricted Product, as applicable, or terminate the Development, Manufacture and Commercialization of the Competing Product or Restricted Product, as applicable, in the Territory as provided in this Section 16.03 (Consequences of Certain Changes in Control of Licensee), then Licensee or its relevant Affiliate will effect such divestiture or termination within [**] after the date of the relevant acquisition or other event, subject to compliance with applicable Law, and will confirm to Agios in writing when such divestiture or termination has been completed. Licensee will keep Agios reasonably informed of its and its Affiliates’ efforts and progress in effecting such divestiture or termination until it is completed. Until such divestiture or termination occurs, Licensee shall keep its and its Affiliates’ activities with respect to such Competing Product or Restricted Product, as applicable, separate from their activities with respect to the Licensed Products and shall continue to fully perform all of their obligations hereunder with respect to Licensed Products, including their applicable diligence obligations with respect to the Development and Commercialization of Licensed Products hereunder.
(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing Section 16.03(a), if, during the term of the exclusivity covenant in Section 2.07(b), Licensee or any of its Affiliates acquires or becomes an Affiliate of a Third Party (whether by way of a purchase of assets, merger, consolidation, Change in Control or otherwise) that is, at such time, Developing, Manufacturing or Commercializing a Restricted Product in a manner that, if performed by Licensee or any of its Affiliates, would violate Section 2.07(b), then, if Licensee so requests within [**] after the closing of the transaction that resulted in Licensee or its applicable Affiliate(s) acquiring or becoming an Affiliate of such Third Party, Agios shall, for a period of [**], discuss with Licensee in good faith whether it would be beneficial to the Development, Manufacture or Commercialization of Licensed Products under this Agreement to waive, in whole or in part, Licensee’s compliance with Section 2.07(b) and Section 16.03(a) with respect to such Development, Manufacture or Commercialization of such Restricted Product. Following such discussions, Agios may elect, in its sole discretion, to waive, in whole or in part, Licensee’s compliance with Section 2.07(b) and Section 16.03(a) with respect to such Development, Manufacture or Commercialization of such Restricted Product.
(c) If, during the Term, Licensee or any of its Affiliates becomes an Acquired Party, then, (i) Agios shall thereafter have the right to assume final decision-making authority over all matters described in Section 3.10(b) relating to Development, and, if Agios exercises such right, Licensee shall no longer have such final decision-making authority, (ii) without limiting



Licensee’s obligations under Section 6.04, following such event Licensee shall, to Agios’ reasonable satisfaction, continue to devote at least the level of efforts and resources to Commercializing Licensed Products that Licensee would have devoted to such Commercialization had Licensee not become an Acquired Party and had continued to pursue such Commercialization in accordance with Section 6.04 and Licensee’s then-existing plans for such activities, and (iii) if Licensee does not, to Agios’ reasonable satisfaction, continue to devote efforts and resources to Commercializing Licensed Products as described in the foregoing clause (ii), then Agios shall have the right to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 14.04.
Section 16.04 Consequences of Certain Changes in Control of Agios.
(a) If, during the term of the exclusivity covenant in Section 2.07(c), Agios or any of its Affiliates acquires or becomes an Affiliate of a Third Party (whether by way of a purchase of assets, merger, consolidation, Change in Control or otherwise) that is, at such time, Developing, Manufacturing or Commercializing a Competing Product in a manner that, if performed by Agios or any of its Affiliates, would violate Section 2.07(c), then Agios or its applicable Affiliate will, no later than [**] following the closing date of the relevant acquisition or other event, unless otherwise agreed by Licensee, notify Licensee in writing that Agios or such Affiliate will:
(i) Divest, whether by license, divestiture of assets or otherwise, its interest in such Competing Product in the Territory to a Third Party, to the extent necessary to be in compliance with Section 2.07(c), provided that Agios or its applicable Affiliate may retain an economic interest through such a license, divestiture of assets or other transaction as long as Agios does not retain any other material rights as to such Competing Product in the Territory beyond a passive economic interest; or
(ii) Terminate the Development, Manufacture and Commercialization of such Competing Product in the Territory, to the extent necessary to be in compliance with Section 2.07(c).
(iii) If Agios or any of its Affiliates notifies Licensee in writing that it or its relevant Affiliate intends to divest such Competing Product or terminate the Development, Manufacture and Commercialization of the Competing Product in the Territory as provided in this Section 16.04 (Consequences of Certain Changes in Control of Agios), then Agios or its relevant Affiliate will effect such divestiture or termination within [**] after the date of the relevant acquisition or other event, subject to compliance with applicable Law, and will confirm to Licensee in writing when such divestiture or termination has been completed. Agios will keep Licensee reasonably informed of its and its Affiliates’ efforts and progress in effecting such divestiture or termination until it is completed. Until such divestiture or termination occurs, Agios shall keep its and its Affiliates’ activities with respect to such Competing Product separate from their activities with respect to the Licensed Products and shall continue to fully perform all of their obligations hereunder with respect to Licensed Products.
