WHEREAS, the parties desire to amend the Agreement, as set forth herein,

 

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises herein contained and other good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound, agree as follows:

 

1.Section 3.1(c) of the Agreement is deleted in its entirety and amended and replaced as follows:

 

“(i) with respect to the People’s Republic of China, an exclusive, non-transferable license under the Licensed Technology to RedPharm to manufacture Elab Analyzers and Elab Cartridges in the People’s Republic of China for distribution within the Territory and/or for sale to NANOMIX as contemplated in Article 5 below and, (ii) additionally, with respect to the Territory other than the People’s Republic of China, a co-exclusive, non-transferable license under the Licensed Technology to RedPharm (co-exclusive with NANOMIX) to manufacture Elab Analyzers for distribution within the Territory and/or for sale to NANOMIX as contemplated in Article 5 below.”

 

2.Section 3.6 of the Agreement is modified to add “(a)” between “Trade Secret Information.” and “NANOMIX” and to add new Sections (b) and (c), as follows:

 

“(b) In furtherance of its obligations and subject to the conditions set forth under Section (a) above and in recognition of requirements for product registration in the People’s Republic of China and elsewhere in the Territory and to comply with applicable law relating to the manufacture, distribution or sale of the Elab Analyzer Units and the Elab Cartridges, NANOMIX will promptly identify and make available to RedPharm (and update on a regular basis, no less frequently than monthly) Trade Secret Information as required in accordance with the provisions of Sections 1.13, 3.6(a), 5.2 and 5.3 hereof. NANOMIX also will provide to RedPharm on a regular basis (no less frequently than monthly) data and information regarding clinical and regulatory activities relating to the Elab Analyzer and the Elab Cartridges. To the extent that NANOMIX in its reasonable judgement deems any details relating to its Trade Secret Information or other proprietary information, it will describe such information generally to RedPharm and will inform RedPharm that certain details related thereto are not being provided to it. RedPharm may then, in its discretion, direct NANOMIX to provide such details to an agreed-upon neutral, independent third party expert jointly selected by the parties, the cost of the external party being shared, will evaluate such information and determine whether disclosure to RedPharm is reasonably necessary for RedPharm to obtain regulatory approval for the manufacture, distribution or sale of the Elab Analyzer or the Elab Cartridges. If the third party expert concludes that such disclosure to RedPharm is necessary, NANOMIX shall be required to provide such information to RedPharm. With respect to such information, RedPharm shall be subject to the confidentiality provisions of Article 7 hereof.”
