32



Licensor is the auditing Party, it shall have the right to require Licensee to permit Licensor’s auditor to accompany Licensee when Licensee exercises its audit rights (or, if Licensee does not intend to exercise its right to audit such Sublicensee within the relevant calendar year, to require Licensee to exercise such right) under any Sublicenses that have been granted as of the date of such audit to permit the Auditor to have access to the books and records of the corresponding Sublicensees. Such audit shall be conducted upon at least [***] days advanced written notice to the audited Party and shall commence on a date reasonably acceptable to both Parties, not to be later than [***] calendar days after the auditing Party’s notice. Such audit shall only be during the audited Party’s normal business hours. [***]. The Auditor shall be required to sign a confidentiality agreement for the benefit of, and in a form reasonably acceptable to, the audited Party. The audited Party shall be provided the opportunity to discuss any discrepancies found during such audit with the Auditor prior to such Auditor issuing its final report. In addition, the Auditor shall redact any Confidential Information disclosed in the proposed final report reasonably identified by the audited Party as confidential and not necessary for purposes of calculating the Royalty or the milestones owed. The final report shall be shared with both of the Parties. If any audit discloses any underpayments by the audited Party to the auditing Party, then unless contested by the audited Party, such underpayment, shall be paid by the audited Party to the auditing Party within [***] calendar days of it being so disclosed. If any audit discloses any overpayments by the audited Party to the auditing Party, then unless contested by the auditing Party, the audited Party shall have the right to credit the amount of the overpayment against each subsequent quarterly Royalty payment due to the auditing Party until the overpayment has been fully applied. If the overpayment is not fully applied prior to the final quarterly payment of Royalties due hereunder, the auditing Party shall promptly refund an amount equal to any such remaining overpayment. If the auditing Party’s audit demonstrates an underpayment of more than [***] percent ([***]%) of the total payments due to the auditing Party hereunder during the audited period, the audited Party shall be liable for the auditing Party’s reasonable out of pocket expenses, including the Auditor’s fees and expenses, in connection with the audit that discovered such underpayment. Otherwise, the auditing Party shall solely bear the costs of such audits. Any contested amounts shall be subject to the dispute resolution procedures set forth in Section 17.2.1.
7.3    Taxes.
7.3.1    Where required to do so by applicable Law or order of a Governmental Authority, Licensee shall be permitted to withhold Taxes required to be paid to a taxing authority in connection with any and all payments to Licensor hereunder (“Withholding Taxes”), and, upon request of Licensor, Licensee shall furnish Licensor with satisfactory evidence of such withholding and payment. To the extent permitted by Law, Licensor shall provide Licensee any Tax forms requested by Licensee that may be reasonably necessary in order for Licensee to not withhold Tax or to withhold Tax at a reduced rate under an applicable bilateral income tax treaty. Licensor shall use reasonable efforts to provide any such Tax forms to Licensee in advance of the due date. The Parties acknowledge and agree that no Withholding Taxes are expected to be deducted or withheld from payments under this Agreement.
7.3.2    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, in the event a Party (i) undertakes a “redomiciliation” (as defined below), (ii) assigns, delegates or otherwise transfers this Agreement or all or any portion of its rights and obligations hereunder (including for sake of clarification the assignment or delegation of any payment obligations under this Agreement) to another Person, including pursuant to Section 19.5, other than at the request of the other Party or (iii) adopts a Tax reporting position that Swedish Withholding Taxes are applicable to payments made to Licensor under this Agreement (other than as a result of a change in Law after the date of this Agreement) (each, a “Tax Action” and such Party, the “Acting Party”), and as a result of such Tax Action the amount of Withholding Taxes required to be withheld under this Section 7.3 in respect of a payment to the other Party (the “Non-Acting Party”) is greater than the amount of such Withholding Taxes that would have been required to have been withheld absent such Tax Action, then any such amount payable to the Non-Acting Party shall be adjusted to take into account such Withholding Taxes as may be necessary so that, after making all required withholdings, the Non-Acting Party receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received


33



had no such increased withholding been made. The obligation to adjust payments pursuant to the preceding sentence shall not apply, however, to the extent such increased Withholding Tax (a) would not have been imposed but for a Tax Action taken by the Non-Acting Party pursuant to the preceding sentence or (b) is attributable to a the failure of the Non-Acting Party to comply with the requirements of this Section 7.3. To the extent the Non-Acting Party receives additional amounts under this Section 7.3.2 and the Non-Acting Party (or its Affiliates), taken as a whole, actually realizes an overall reduction in cash Taxes otherwise due in any taxable period ending before the termination of this Agreement (determined on a with and without basis and taking into account the overall Tax liability of the Non-Acting Party (and its Affiliates)) as a result of a foreign Tax credit or a Tax refund attributable to such Withholding Taxes in respect of which the Non-Acting Party received additional amounts pursuant to this Section 7.3.2 (such reduction, a “Tax Benefit”), the Non-Acting Party shall pay to the Acting Party an amount equal to such Tax Benefit, net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Non-Acting Party in connection with the obtaining or receipt of such Tax Benefit. For purposes of this Section 7.3, a “redomiciliation” shall include a reincorporation or other action resulting in a change in Tax residence of the applicable Party, its assignee or any Person making a payment on behalf of such Party, or the formation of a branch of any such Party or Person in a jurisdiction other than Sweden, in the case of Licensee, or the United States, in the case of Licensor, but only to the extent that a payment under this Agreement is made by such branch.
7.4    Late Payments. Any milestone payments or Royalties due to Licensor under this Agreement or any portion thereof which are not paid when due, shall bear interest at a per-annum rate of prime (as reported in The Wall Street Journal (U.S., Eastern Edition)) plus [***] percentage points ([***]%) or the maximum rate allowable by applicable Law, whichever is less.

Licensor shall (and shall ensure that its Affiliates) reasonably cooperate, and Licensor shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to ensure that its licensors cooperate, in any such enforcement action, including being joined as a party to such enforcement action if reasonably necessary to establish or maintain standing and making its employees reasonably available, [***].

42



of any such action. In the absence of any conflict of interest, the Parties shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to utilize the same legal counsel.
9.4.5    Settlement. With respect to any infringement or defensive action identified in Section 9.4.2 or Section 9.5, the Party controlling such action shall have the right to settle or otherwise dispose of such action on such terms as such Party shall determine in its sole discretion, including, in the case of Licensee, by granting a license or sublicense to a Third Party under the rights granted to Licensee under the License in accordance with the sublicensing terms of Section 2.3, as applicable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no such settlement or other disposition will (a) impose any monetary restriction or obligation on or admit fault of the other Party or (b) adversely affect the other Party’s rights under this Agreement to any Patent then being enforced or defended, in each case ((a) and (b)), without the prior written consent of the other Party, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed.
9.4.6    Recoveries. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, any monetary damages recovered upon the final judgment or settlement of any action described in Section 9.4.2 shall be used first to reimburse the Party that brought the enforcement action (the “Controlling Party”) for its costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred from the action, and any remaining amount will be distributed as follows [***].
9.5    Third Party Infringement Claims.
9.5.1    If the Exploitation of a Product results in a claim, suit or proceeding alleging patent infringement against either Party (or its Affiliates, licensees or Sublicensees) (a “Third Party Infringement Claim”), including any defense or counterclaim in connection with a Competitive Infringement initiated in connection with Section 9.4.2, such Party shall promptly notify the other Party hereto in writing.
9.5.2    [***].
9.5.3    Licensor shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to ensure that its licensors assist and cooperate with Licensee, as Licensee may reasonably request from time to time, in connection with its activities set forth in this Section 9.5, including where necessary, being joined as a party plaintiff if reasonably necessary to establish standing for such action, providing access to relevant documents and other evidence and making its employees available at reasonable business hours; provided that [***] shall reimburse [***] and its Affiliates and its licensors for their reasonable and verifiable out-of-pocket costs, damages and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees (further provided the Parties shall have used Commercially Reasonable Efforts to utilize the same legal counsel) that such entity may incur in connection with such assistance or joinder, including any award of costs against it.
9.5.4    Licensee shall keep Licensor reasonably informed of all material developments in connection with any such Third Party Infringement Claim; provided, however, that, with respect to such comments provided by Licensor and received no later than [***] Business Days prior to any filing deadline regarding any statement Licensee proposes to make in connection with the enforcement of the [***], Licensee will implement such Licensor comments, provided further, that notwithstanding the foregoing, if the intended statement is consistent with a previous statement made publicly in Prosecution or any enforcement action by Licensor regarding ImmTOR, Licensee shall be permitted to make such statement regardless of Licensor’s comments.
9.5.5    Any damages or awards, including royalties, awarded to the party alleging patent infringement under any Third Party Infringement Claim defended under this Section 9.5 shall be borne by [***]. For clarity, if [***] is required to make any payment to a Third Party (including any Third


43



Party which becomes an Acquisition Entity of Licensor) to settle such Third Party Infringement Claim, such Third Party Payment shall be a Third Party Payment for the purposes of Section 6.5.3.
9.6    Defense. To the extent either Party receives notice by counterclaim, or otherwise, alleging the invalidity or unenforceability of any Licensed Patent, it will bring such fact to the attention of the other Party, including all relevant information related to such claim. Where such allegation is made in an opposition, reexamination, interference, post-grant proceeding or other patent office proceeding, the provisions of Section 9.3 will apply. Where such allegation is made in a declaratory judgment action, a counterclaim to a suit or other action brought under Section 9.4, the provisions of Section 9.4 will apply.
9.7    Common Interest. All information exchanged between the Parties regarding the Prosecution, and enforcement and defense, of Patents under this Section 9 will be deemed Confidential Information of the disclosing Party. In addition, the Parties acknowledge and agree that, with regard to such Prosecution, and enforcement and defense of Patents under this Section 9, the interests of the Parties as collaborators and licensor and licensee are to obtain the strongest patent protection possible, and as such, are aligned and are legal in nature. The Parties agree and acknowledge that they have not waived, and nothing in this Agreement constitutes a waiver of, any legal privilege concerning Patents under this Section 9, including privilege under the common interest doctrine and similar or related doctrines. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, to the extent a Party has a good faith belief that any information required to be disclosed by such Party to the other Party under this Section 9 is protected by attorney‑client privilege or any other applicable legal privilege or immunity, such Party will not be required to disclose such information and the Parties will in good faith cooperate to agree upon a procedure (including entering into a specific common interest agreement, disclosing such information on a “for counsel eyes only” basis or similar procedure) under which such information may be disclosed without waiving or breaching such privilege or immunity.
9.8    Third Party Patent Rights. If, at any time during the Term, in the reasonable opinion of Licensee, it is reasonably necessary to obtain rights to a Patent of a Third Party (including any Third Party which becomes an Acquisition Entity of Licensor) for Licensee or its Affiliates or its or their Sublicensees to Exploit the Products in the Field in any country in the Territory (such right, a “Third Party Patent Right”), then, as between the Parties, [***], Licensee shall have the right, but not the obligation, to negotiate and obtain a license from such Third Party (including any Third Party which becomes an any Acquisition Entity of Licensor) to such Third Party Patent Right as necessary for Licensee or its Affiliates or its or their Sublicensees to Exploit the Products in the Field in such country; provided that subject to Section 6.5.3, as between the Parties, Licensee shall bear all expenses incurred in connection therewith, including any royalties, milestones or other payments including In-Licensor Payments, incurred under any such license.
9.9    Personnel Obligations. Prior to beginning work under this Agreement relating to any Development or Commercialization of a Product, each employee, agent or independent contractor of Licensee or Licensor or of either Party’s Affiliates, Sublicensees or (sub)licensees will be bound by non-disclosure and invention assignment obligations which are consistent with the obligations of Licensee or Licensor, as appropriate, in this Section 9, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, including: (a) promptly reporting any invention, discovery, process or other intellectual property right; (b) assigning to Licensee or Licensor, as appropriate, all of his or her right, title and interest in and to any invention, discovery, process or other intellectual property right; (c) in the case of employees, agents, or independent contractors working in the United States, taking actions reasonably necessary to secure patent protection; (d) performing all acts and signing, executing, acknowledging and delivering any and all documents required for effecting the obligations and purposes of this Agreement; and (e) abiding by the obligations of confidentiality and non-use set forth in Section 10.

9.10    Rights in Bankruptcy.
9.10.1    Licenses in Bankruptcy. All licenses granted by Licensor to Licensee under this Agreement are and shall otherwise be deemed to be, for purposes of Title 11, United States Code or foreign equivalent laws (the “Bankruptcy Code”), licenses of rights to “intellectual property” as defined in Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code. Licensee shall retain and may fully exercise all of its rights and elections under the Bankruptcy Code with respect to this Agreement and any agreement supplementary hereto in accordance with Section 365(n) of the Bankruptcy Code, including the obligations of the Parties under Sections 365(n)(2), (n)(3), and (n)(4) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Upon the bankruptcy of Licensor, Licensee shall further be entitled to a complete duplicate of, or complete access to, any such intellectual property, and such shall be promptly delivered or made available to Licensee, unless an order approving assumption of this Agreement and any agreement supplementary hereto that is reasonably acceptable to Licensee is entered and takes effect within [***] days of the bankruptcy commencement by or against Licensor. Upon rejection of this Agreement in an Insolvency Proceeding of Licensor, Licensor or any bankruptcy trustee shall comply with the provisions of Section 16.8 and not interfere with the rights of Licensor provided in this Agreement or any other agreement supplementary hereto to licensed or transferred pursuant to Section 16.8.
9.10.2    No termination or Rejection. Licensor will not move for, or consent to, the termination of or rejection of this Agreement in any Insolvency Proceeding involving Licensor, notwithstanding any right Licensor may have at law to do so. In the event that this covenant is breached and the License is terminated in whole or in part, the Parties acknowledge and agree that Licensee will suffer irreparable harm.
9.10.3    Negative Covenant. Licensor covenants that it will not, during the Royalty Term, create, or permit to subsist, any Encumbrance (except for Permitted Encumbrances) on any of the Licensed Technology.

(a)    made in response to a valid order of a court of competent jurisdiction or other supra-national, federal, national, regional, state, provincial or local governmental or regulatory body of competent jurisdiction or, if in the reasonable opinion of the receiving Party’s legal counsel, such disclosure is otherwise required by applicable Law, including by reason of filing with securities regulators or rules of an applicable securities exchange; provided, however, that the receiving Party shall first where practicable have given notice to the disclosing Party and given the disclosing Party a reasonable opportunity to quash such order or to obtain a protective order or confidential treatment requiring that such disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and documents that are the subject of such order be held in confidence by such court or agency or, if disclosed, be used only for the purposes for which the order was issued; and provided, further, that the Confidential Information disclosed in response to such court or governmental order or made in such filing shall be limited to that information which is legally required to be disclosed in response to such court or governmental order or made in such filing;

in order to perform Exploitation activities under this Agreement or otherwise perform such Party’s obligations or exercise such Party’s rights under this Agreement;
(f)    made or on behalf of a Party or its Affiliate to the counterparty to an Upstream Agreement, solely to the extent necessary to enable Licensor to comply with its obligations thereunder, provided, however, that such persons shall be subject to obligations of confidentiality and non-use with respect to such Confidential Information substantially similar to the obligations of confidentiality and non-use of the receiving Party pursuant to this Section 10 and provided, further, that the Confidential Information so disclosed shall be limited to that information which is strictly required to be disclosed to enable compliance with such Upstream Agreement; or

10.1.6    The Mutual Confidential Disclosure Agreement by and between Licensor and Licensee dated January 24, 2020 (as amended, the “Confidentiality Agreement”) is hereby superseded and replaced by this Agreement, and information disclosed pursuant to such Confidentiality Agreement prior to the Effective Date will be protected as Confidential Information under this Section 10.1 of this Agreement.
10.1.7    Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 10.1, each Party shall comply with the obligations of Licensor pursuant to Section 10.1 of the 3SBio License Agreement.
10.2    Publicity. The Parties have agreed on the language of their respective press releases announcing this Agreement, which are attached hereto as Annex D, to be issued by the Parties promptly after the Effective Date. Subject to the foregoing, the Parties have agreed that neither Party shall issue any public announcement, press release or other public disclosure regarding this Agreement or its subject matter without the other Party’s prior written consent, except for any such disclosure as is, in the opinion of the disclosing Party’s counsel, required by applicable Law or the rules of a stock exchange on which the securities of the disclosing Party are listed (or to which an application for listing has been submitted). In the event a Party is, in the opinion of its counsel, required by applicable Law or the rules of a stock exchange on which its securities are listed (or to which an application for listing has been submitted) to make such a public disclosure, such Party shall submit the proposed disclosure in writing to the other Party as far in advance as reasonably practicable so as to provide a reasonable opportunity to comment thereon. Neither Party shall be required to seek the permission of the other Party to repeat any information regarding the terms of this Agreement or any amendment hereto that has already been publicly disclosed by such Party or by the other Party, in accordance with this Section 10.2; provided that such information remains true and accurate as of such time.
10.3    Equitable Relief. Each Party acknowledges that a breach of this Section 10 may not reasonably or adequately be compensated in damages in an action at law and that such a breach may cause the other Party irreparable injury and damage. Therefore, each Party agrees that the other Party


47



shall be entitled, in addition to any other remedies it may have under this Agreement or otherwise, to preliminary and permanent injunctive and other equitable relief to prevent or curtail any breach of the obligations relating to Confidential Information set forth in this Agreement.
11.    TRANSPARENCY, DATA PROTECTION.
11.1    Transparency. Each Party acknowledges that the other Party is subject to applicable Laws related to: (i) the collection and reporting of any payments or transfers of value to certain HCPs and teaching hospitals (collectively, “Financial Transparency Laws”), which include, without limitation, relevant provisions of the U.S. Physician Payments Sunshine Act (42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7h) and its implementing regulations along with similar laws and regulations in other countries; and (ii) the collection and reporting requirements, and the processing of any applicable rebate, chargeback or adjustment, under applicable rules and regulations relating to the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program (42 U.S.C. § 1396r-8) and any state supplemental rebate program, Medicare average sales price reporting (42 U.S.C. § 1395w-3a), the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. § 256b), the VA Federal Supply Schedule (38 U.S.C. § 8126) or under any state pharmaceutical assistance program or U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs agreement, and any successor government programs, as well as any registration, notification and reporting requirements under any state drug pricing transparency laws, and its implementing regulations, respectively, along with similar laws and regulations in other countries (collectively, “Drug Pricing Transparency Laws”, and together, with the Financial Transparency Laws, the “Transparency Laws”). Each Party shall reasonably cooperate with the other Party in its compliance in all material respects with Transparency Laws and promptly provide any information requested by such other Party in connection with this Agreement in a mutually agreed upon format that is necessary or reasonably useful for such other Party to comply with its obligations under the Transparency Laws. With respect to the Financial Transparency Laws, each Party shall have the right to allocate payments or other transfers of value in connection with this Agreement in any required reporting under such laws in accordance with its normal business practices.
11.2    Data Protection. Each Party shall fully comply with its obligations under applicable Data Protection Laws in the performance of its obligations hereunder. Without limiting the foregoing:
11.2.1    to the extent a Party is the sponsor of each clinical trial, each Party shall ensure that all patient authorizations and consents required under applicable Data Protection Laws are obtained and permit the sharing of data and information by the Parties under this Agreement. Where safety information is received outside the conduct of a clinical trial by a Party and that Party subsequently shares such safety information with the other Party under this Agreement, the disclosing Party shall ensure that all patient authorizations and consents required under applicable Data Protection Laws permit such sharing of safety information by the Parties;
11.2.2    Each Party shall, at the other Party’s expense, provide the other with such assistance as may be reasonably requested to ensure that each Party complies with their obligations under applicable Data Protection Laws. For clarity, such assistance may include, but is not limited to cooperating in response to requests from data subjects and notifying the other Party of the receipt of such requests.
11.2.3    Each Party acknowledges that each Party is under an obligation to ensure that the Personal Data they Process in connection with this Agreement and which the disclosing Party discloses in connection with this Agreement is limited to only that which is necessary for the purposes of the Processing, therefore the disclosing Party shall, notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to transfer only that Transferred Data which is required to facilitate the performance of this Agreement. If the receiving Party reasonably believes that additional Personal Data is required to be disclosed to enable the performance of this Agreement, the receiving Party shall notify the disclosing Party and the Parties shall discuss in good faith whether such additional Personal Data will be disclosed by the disclosing Party, taking into account each Party’s obligations under applicable


48



Data Protection Laws, the potential for the provision of anonymized data in place of the requested Personal Data, and any actions which are required to be taken by either Party in connection with such requested disclosure.

17.2.1    Resolution by Executive Officers. Subject to Section 19.6 and except as otherwise expressly set forth in this Agreement, including Section 3.2, in the event of any disagreement, controversy, dispute or claim arising out of, in connection with, or in relation to the interpretation, performance, or alleged breach of this Agreement (the “Dispute”), prior to instituting any proceeding on account of such Dispute, the Parties shall attempt in good faith to settle such Dispute first by referral of such matters to the JSC. After attempted resolution of any Dispute by the JSC in accordance, the Dispute shall be referred to the Executive Officers of the Parties in writing by either Party, who will use good faith efforts to resolve such matter within [***] days after the JSC’s submission of such matter to such Executive Officers, which good faith efforts will include at least one (1) meeting between such Executive Officers within [***] Business Days after such submission. Any final decision mutually agreed to by the Executive Officers shall be set forth in writing and be conclusive and binding on the Parties. In the


61



event said Executive Officers are unable to resolve such Dispute or agree upon a mechanism to resolve such Dispute within [***] days of the first written request for dispute resolution under this Section 17.2.1, then the Parties shall resolve all such Disputes in accordance with Section 17.2.2.
17.2.2    Litigation. Except in relation to a matter expressly stated to be referred to Expedited Arbitration hereunder, any unresolved Dispute that was subject to Section 17.2.1 shall be brought exclusively in a court of competent jurisdiction, federal or state, located in New York, New York, and in no other jurisdiction.
17.2.3    Jurisdiction; Waiver of Trial by Jury. Subject to Section 19.6, the Parties hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York and the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York for any action, suit or proceeding (other than appeals therefrom) arising out of or relating to this Agreement, and agree not to commence any action, suit or proceeding (other than appeals therefrom) related thereto except in such courts.

17.2.7    Expedited Arbitration. If a Party exercises its rights under this Agreement to refer a Dispute to expedited arbitration (an “Expedited Dispute”), then the Parties will follow the expedited dispute resolution process in this Section 17.2.7 (and not the dispute resolution process in Section 17.2.1 of this Agreement) (“Expedited Arbitration”). The Parties agree and acknowledge that any good faith dispute under Expedited Arbitration will not be deemed to be a material breach of this Agreement. The Expedited Dispute will be submitted to fast track, binding arbitration in accordance with the following:
(a)    An Expedited Arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules, as amended by this Section 17.2.7, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The place of arbitration shall be New York, New York. The award shall be rendered within [***] Business Days after the appointment of the arbitrator, unless the arbitrator determines that the interest of justice requires that such limit be extended. The language of the arbitration shall be English.  There shall be one (1) arbitrator. If the Parties are unable to agree on an arbitrator within [***] Business Days from the initiation of the arbitration, then the Parties will request that the AAA select the arbitrator.  The arbitrator shall have at least ten (10) years of experience in disputes involving the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries, including the valuation of biopharmaceutical intellectual property and the conduct of research, development, and commercialization collaborations.  The cost of the arbitration will be borne equally by the Parties, and each Party shall bear its own costs


62



and attorney’s and witnesses’ fees and associated costs and expenses.  Except in a proceeding to enforce the results of the arbitration or as otherwise required by applicable Laws, neither Licensee nor Licensor nor any arbitrator may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written agreement of Licensee and Licensor.
(b)    Within [***] Business Days after the appointment of the arbitrator, each Party will provide the arbitrator with a proposal and written memorandum in support of its position regarding the Expedited Dispute, as well as any documentary evidence it wishes to provide in support thereof (not to exceed thirty (30) pages) (each a “Proposal”) and the arbitrator will provide each Party’s Proposal to the other Party after it receives it from both Parties.
(c)    Within [***] Business Days after a Party submits its Proposal, the other Party will have the right to submit a rebuttal memorandum (not to exceed fifteen (15) pages), if any, to the arbitrator and the other Party. If requested by the arbitrator, the Parties will make oral submissions to the arbitrator based on such Party’s Proposal. 
(d)    Within [***] Business Days after the receipt by the arbitrator of both Parties’ written submissions (or expiration of the [***] Business Day period if any Party fails to submit a response), the arbitrator will issue a final award in writing, stating its reasoning, provided that the arbitrator will select one of the Parties’ Proposals. The decision of the arbitrator will be the sole, exclusive, binding and non-appealable remedy between them regarding the dispute referred to Expedited Arbitration.
17.2.8    Tolling. The Parties agree that all applicable statutes of limitation and time based defenses (such as estoppel and laches), as well as all time periods in which a Party must exercise rights or perform obligation hereunder, will be tolled once the dispute resolution procedures set forth in this Section 17.2 have been initiated and for so long as they are pending, and the Parties will cooperate in taking all actions reasonably necessary to achieve such a result. In addition, during the pendency of any Dispute under this Agreement initiated before the end of any applicable cure period, including under Section 16.2, (a) this Agreement will remain in full force and effect, (b) the provisions of this Agreement relating to termination for material breach with respect to such Dispute will not be effective, (c) the time periods for cure under Section 16.2 as to any termination notice given prior to the initiation of arbitration will be tolled, (d) any time periods to exercise rights or perform obligations will be tolled, and (e) neither Party will issue a notice of termination pursuant to this Agreement based on the subject matter of the arbitration, until the arbitral tribunal has confirmed the material breach and the existence of the facts claimed by a Party to be the basis for the asserted material breach; provided that if such breach can be cured by (i) the payment of money, then the defaulting Party will have an additional [***] calendar days within its receipt of the arbitral tribunal’s decision to pay such amount, or (ii) the taking of specific remedial actions, then the defaulting Party will have a reasonably necessary period to diligently undertake and complete such remedial actions within such reasonably necessary period or any specific timeframe established by such arbitral tribunal’s decision before any such notice of termination can be issued. Further, with respect to any time periods that have run during the pendency of the Dispute, the applicable Party will have a reasonable period of time or any specific timeframe established by such arbitral tribunal’s decision to exercise any rights or perform any obligations affected by the running of such time periods.
18.    HSR FILINGS AND CLOSING
18.1    HSR Filings. If required by Applicable Laws, after the execution of this Agreement, both Parties shall promptly, and in no less than [***] Business Days, file, the appropriate notices under the Hart Scott Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act (“HSR Act”). The Parties shall promptly make required filings to obtain clearance under the HSR Act for the consummation of this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, use reasonable efforts to obtain such clearance, and shall keep each other apprised of the status of any communications with, and any inquiries or requests for additional information from, the United States’ Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) and Department of Justice (“DOJ”) and shall


63



comply promptly with any such inquiry or request; provided, however, neither Party shall be required to consent to the divestiture or other disposition of any of its assets or the assets of its Affiliates or to consent to any other structural or conduct remedy, and each Party and its Affiliates shall have no obligation to contest, administratively or in court, any ruling, order or other action of the FTC or DOJ or any Third Party with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. Each Party shall be responsible for paying its own costs and expenses (including legal and consultants’ fees) incurred in connection with obtaining clearance of the transactions contemplated hereby from the FTC and the DOJ [***]. Each of the Parties hereto will furnish to the other such necessary information and reasonable assistance as the other may request in connection with the preparation of any required filings or submissions and will cooperate in responding to any inquiry from the FTC or DOJ and to any requests for additional information at the earliest practicable date, including promptly informing the other Party of such inquiry, consulting in advance before making any presentations or submissions to the FTC or DOJ, and supplying each other with copies of all material correspondence, filings or communications between either party and either the FTC or DOJ with respect to this Agreement. Such information can be shared on an outside counsel basis or subject to other restrictions to the extent deemed necessary or advisable by counsel for the disclosing Party. To the extent practicable and as permitted by the FTC or DOJ, each Party hereto shall permit representatives of the other Party to participate in material substantive meetings (whether by telephone or in person) with the FTC or DOJ. Neither Party shall commit to or agree with the FTC or DOJ to withdraw its filing and refile under the HSR Act without the prior written consent of the other (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). In the event the Parties determine that HSR filings are required, the Effective Date shall not be deemed to have occurred and this Agreement (other than this Section 18 and Section 10) shall not be binding until the HSR Clearance Date. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement to the contrary, either Party may terminate this Agreement effective upon notice to the other Party if the HSR Clearance Date has not occurred on or before the date that is one hundred and eighty (180) days after the Parties make their respective HSR filings.
19.    MISCELLANEOUS

19.2    Relationship of the Parties. It is expressly agreed that Licensor, on the one hand, and Licensee, on the other hand, shall be independent contractors and that the relationship between the Parties under this Agreement shall not constitute a partnership, joint venture or agency.

All persons employed by a Party shall be employees of such Party and not of the other Party and all costs and obligations incurred by reason of any such employment shall be for the account and expense of such first Party.
19.3    Unenforceability. If any provision of this Agreement is held or determined to be illegal, invalid, void or unenforceable under any present or future applicable Laws by a final decision of a court of competent jurisdiction on the merits from which no appeal can be taken, (a) such provision shall be fully severable, (b) this Agreement shall be construed and enforced as if such illegal, invalid, void or unenforceable provision had never comprised a part hereof, (c) the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected by the illegal, invalid, void or unenforceable provision or by its severance therefrom, and (d) in lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, there shall be added automatically as a part of this Agreement a legal, valid and enforceable provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid, void or unenforceable provision as may be possible and reasonably acceptable to the Parties.


64



19.4    Waiver and Non-Exclusion of Remedies. Any term or condition of this Agreement may be waived at any time by the Party that is entitled to the benefit thereof, but no such waiver shall be effective unless set forth in a written instrument duly executed by or on behalf of the Party waiving such term or condition. The waiver by either Party of any right hereunder or of 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 Laws or otherwise available except as expressly set forth herein.
19.5    Assignment; Securitization.
19.5.1    Assignment.
(a)    Except as expressly provided hereunder, neither Party may assign, delegate or otherwise transfer this Agreement or its rights and obligations hereunder except with the prior written consent of the other Party, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either Party shall have the right to assign this Agreement (in whole or in part) without the other Party’s prior written consent to any of its Affiliates, successors in interest or acquirers of all or substantially all of its assets relating to the Licensed Technology or the Product, including any successor in interest by way of any merger, sale of assets, reincorporation or other reorganization; provided that such Affiliate, successor in interest or acquirer assumes in writing all of such Party’s obligations under this Agreement or part hereof. An assignment to an Affiliate shall terminate, and all rights so assigned will revert to the assigning Party, if and when such Affiliate ceases to be an Affiliate of the assigning Party.
(b)    Licensor covenants and agrees that it shall not assign any of the Licensed Technology to any Third Party unless the obligations under this Agreement are also assigned to and assumed by such Third Party in writing and, absent a novation agreed and executed by the Parties, the assigning Party shall continue to be liable to the non-assigning Party for any breaches of this Agreement by the Affiliate, successor in interest or acquirer.
(c)    Any attempted assignment, delegation or transfer of this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder by either Party without the prior written consent of the other Party, other than in accordance with this Section 19.5.1, shall be void and of no effect. Subject to the preceding sentence, this Agreement will be binding upon, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by, the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns, provided that the assigning Party shall remain responsible for all of its obligations hereunder notwithstanding any such assignment.
19.5.2    Securitization. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 19.5 or elsewhere in this Agreement, Licensor may assign to a Third Party which is not in the business of exploiting pharmaceutical products the right to receive the milestone payments under Sections 6.2 and 6.3 and the Royalty payments under Section 6.4 (such assignment, a “Securitization Transaction”) without the prior written consent of Licensee, provided that upon making such assignment: (a) such Third Party shall not have any rights or benefits directly under this Agreement, including any right to directly enforce its terms with Licensee; (b) Licensee shall have no obligation to pay amounts due hereunder to more than one Person, (c) Licensee’s right pursuant to Section 19.4 to waive the terms of this Agreement will not be subject to the consent of such Third Party, and (d) Licensor shall as soon as reasonably practicable following the completion of such Securitization Transaction provide Licensor with a copy of the agreement executed by Licensor with the relevant Third Party (which copy may be redacted to remove provisions which are not necessary to ensure compliance with this Section 19.5.2). In connection with a contemplated or consummated Securitization Transaction, Licensor may disclose to such Third Party the royalty reports contemplated under Section 6.6 and, to the extent milestone payments are proposed to be included in the Securitization Transaction, the notices on achievement of Development Milestone Events contemplated


65



under Section 6.2, without the prior written consent of Licensee, to the extent reasonably necessary to enable such Third Party to evaluate the Securitization Transaction opportunity and to allow such Third Party to exercise its rights with respect to such Securitization Transaction (provided that such Third Party is under obligations of confidentiality and non-use with respect to Confidential Information included in such reports that are no less stringent than the terms of Section 10).
19.6    Injunctive Relief. Each of the Parties agrees that if certain obligations under this Agreement are not performed in accordance with their specific terms or are otherwise breached, (a) severe and irreparable damage would occur, (b) no adequate remedy at law would exist, and (c) damages would be difficult to determine. Each of the Parties agrees that, in such case, the injured Party shall be authorized and entitled to obtain from any court of competent jurisdiction injunctive relief, whether preliminary or permanent, as well as any other relief permitted by applicable law, and the breaching Party hereby waives: (i) any requirement that such Party post bond as a condition for obtaining any such relief and (ii) any defenses in any action for specific performance, including the defense that a remedy at law would be adequate.
19.7    English Language. This Agreement shall be written and executed in, and all other communications under or in connection with this Agreement shall be in, the English language.
