2.       Payment. In consideration for the Services to be provided by MediGain and Millennium hereunder, Buyer shall pay to MediGain and Millennium (i) all costs incurred and accrued on and after October 1, 2016 through the end of the transition period relative to the Facilities and Leased Equipment, including rent, CAM charges, and utilities from and after the closing, estimated on Schedule A and Schedule B attached hereto, (ii) the premiums and costs for Insurance Coverage from and after October 1, 2016 through the end of the transition period as outlined on Schedule C attached hereto, (iii) $28,000 to reimburse MediGain for expenses incurred and paid on behalf of its offshore subsidiary prior to the Effective Date and (iv) all expenses incurred on or after October 1, 2016 (including MediGain credit card charges) through the end of the transition period for the benefit of Buyer; provided, however, that Buyer shall not be obligated to pay for any Services for a particular Facility or item of equipment if (a) Buyer is not able to occupy the particular Facility or use an item of Leased Equipment for any reason, including the termination of an applicable lease by the lessor, or (b) Buyer provides MediGain and/or Millennium written notice five (5) days prior to the beginning of a month notifying them that Buyer no longer wishes to occupy or use a particular Facility or item of Leased Equipment. If Buyer requests support to be provided by Medigain and Millennium for purposes of providing the cooperation described in Section 1(a) above or completing the audit described in the Strict Foreclosure Agreement (beyond the mere act of signing the management rep letter), Buyer shall request Alan Weiner’s assistance for specific tasks in writing, and shall pay Alan Weiner’s hourly rate of $400 for actual services performed. The fees for the Services and Insurance Coverage shall be payable monthly by the 25th of the month immediately preceding the month for which such fees are owed.

Although estimates of utilities and CAM charges are estimated on Schedule A, the parties hereto agree to a monthly “true-up” for actual amounts invoiced and owed. If Buyer fails to make any payment stipulated in this Agreement by the date specified herein, MediGain and/or Millennium may terminate the applicable lease and Buyer shall have no further right to occupy and/or use the Facility or Leased Equipment covered by that terminated lease. Buyer shall additionally be responsible for providing funds to MediGain and Millennium to allow it to pay for all utilities for the Leased Real Property and any sales or other taxes relating to the provision of goods or services received with respect to Services provided hereunder, but not any taxes attributable to or measured by MediGain and Millennium’s net income.


3.       Relationship of Parties. The Principal Parties hereto are independent contractors, and neither such party nor its respective employees or agents will be deemed to be employees or agents of the other Principal Party for any purpose or under any circumstances. No partnership, joint venture, alliance, fiduciary or any relationship other than that of independent contractors is created hereby, expressly or by implication.


4.       Compliance with Laws. Each party will, with respect to its obligations and performance hereunder, comply with all applicable requirements of federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation import and export control, environmental and occupational safety requirements.


5.        Covenant of Buyer Regarding Permitted Use; Indemnity and Damages.

  6. Miscellaneous.


(a)      Force Majeure. Neither Principal Party will have any liability for damages or delay due to fire, explosion, lightning, power failure or surges, strikes or labor disputes, water or food, acts of God, the elements, war, civil disturbances, acts of civil or military authorities or the public enemy, acts or omissions of communications or other carriers, or any other cause beyond a party’s reasonable control, whether or not similar to the foregoing, that prevents such party from materially performing its obligations hereunder.


(b)      Entire Agreement; Modification; Waivers. This Agreement and the Schedules attached hereto constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and shall supersede all previous negotiation, commitments and writings with respect to Services. This Agreement and the Schedules attached hereto may not be altered, modified or amended except by a written instrument signed by the affected parties. The failure of any party to require the performance or satisfaction of any term or obligation of this Agreement, or the waiver by any party of any breach of this Agreement, shall not prevent subsequent enforcement of such term or obligation or be deemed a waiver of any subsequent breach.


(c)      Severability. The provisions of this Agreement are severable, and in the event that any one or more provisions are deemed illegal or unenforceable the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect unless the deletion of such provision shall cause this Agreement to become materially adverse to either party, in which event the parties shall use reasonable commercial efforts to arrive at an accommodation that best preserves for the parties the benefits and obligations of the illegal or unenforceable provision.
