7.           The Parties agree to add Sections 16, 16.1 and 16.2 with the following:

 

16.         SUPPLIER AGREEMENT.

 

16.1         Purchaser and Seller shall enter into an exclusive ten (10) year supplier agreement (the “Exclusive Supplier Period”) as soon as Seller has developed a version of ElectriPlast that the parties agree is suitable for use in the manufacture of bipolar plates using the Technology. The supply agreement shall include the following key terms:

 

a.    During the Exclusive Supplier Period, Seller shall be the exclusive supplier of conductive plastic material (“ElectriPlast”) used by Purchaser for the manufacture of bi-polar plates using the Technology, and Purchaser shall only use ElectriPlast for its bipolar plates;

 

b.    During the Exclusive Supplier Period, Seller shall supply ElectriPlast at a mutually agreeable price, and upon the expiration of the Exclusive Supplier Period, Seller shall have the right to match any third-party supplier price to maintain its exclusive supplier role with Purchaser.

 

c.    During the Exclusive Supplier Period, the Purchaser shall be the Seller’s sole customer and Seller shall not market, sell, transfer, or distribute the ElectriPlast material to any third party without Purchaser’s written consent. During the Exclusive Supplier Period, Purchaser shall be the Seller’s exclusive distributor of ElectriPlast for use with the Technology.

 

16.2         Third-Party Supplier. Until the parties enter into an exclusive supplier agreement, Purchaser shall have the right to purchase materials as needed from any third-party supplier, to continue its development of the bipolar plate for commercialization in energy storage devices. In the event Purchaser enters into a supply agreement with a third-party supplier to secure the availability of materials for its biplate development and commercialization efforts, Purchaser shall not be required to enter into an exclusive supplier agreement with the Seller as stated in Section 16.1, but make best effort to enter into a non-exclusive supplier agreement with Seller that does not disadvantage Purchaser from any existing supplier agreement it may have with a third-party supplier.”
