(hereinafter “XPeng”), an overseas entity incorporated in the Cayman Islands and the parent company of Party B.

Subject to that the conditions of lawful operation have been met, Party A and Party B shall jointly set up an Operating Subsidiary (hereinafter the “Operating Subsidiary”) in accordance with Article 3.1 hereof. The Operating Subsidiary shall enter into a lease contract with the Project Company for a term of seven (7) years, commencing from the date the Project is put into operation. The aggregated amount of the rent for the lease term shall be the sum of all investments made by the Project Company each year, starting from the date on which the land is acquired, for developing and constructing the Project, as well as for necessary operation and maintenance, plus an annual simple interest of 4%. Such total rent, when divided by the lease term (i.e. seven years), shall be the rent payable by Party B each year. In addition, each party shall assist the Project Company in applying for a special subsidy from GETDZ in an amount equivalent to the rent payable by Party B.

 

2.6

Upon expiration of the lease term, and under the condition that the premises are wholly owned by the Project Company free of any encumbrances, the Operating Subsidiary shall, based on the Construction Cost and actual operation and maintenance funds incurred, acquire (as the assignee) all the equity of the Project Company and thus obtain all the land and buildings of the SEMB. Should such transfer be subject to the transaction measures of State-owned assets, the final transfer price shall be the valuation of the equity or the sum of the Construction Cost and actual operation and maintenance funds, whichever is higher. If the final transfer price is higher than the sum of the Construction Cost and actual operation and maintenance funds, the excess shall be paid after Party B has applied for and obtained a special subsidiary from the GETDZ.
