    Addendum to Adobe Systems Inc. Turnkey Agreement for Production of Adobe Program Packages

Adobe Systems—Description of Services

1.  General Agreement  

    It is Adobe System's intent to utilize McQueen for certain turnkey production and bulk distribution services. The initial application of these services will be with Adobe's Frame product line. McQueen will provide these services utilizing its Fremont facility. It is Adobe's intent to award the above referenced Frame business to McQueen for the current revision level.

Description of Operational Model and Services Provided

    The following is a description of the operational model that will function between Adobe and McQueen. The services provided will include the following:

Forecasting & Demand Management

    Adobe will furnish both a rolling finished goods forecast with a pre-determined planning forecast horizon of approximately [*] months, and a rolling [*]-week finished goods build plan (also updated weekly). This forecast information will be used for materials management and purchasing, as well as the scheduling and production planning for product assemblies. Specific "freeze points" will be identified for both materials purchases as well as assemblies, and will serve as commitments from Adobe for the indicated volumes.

    McQueen will process requirements for unforecasted or unexpected demand within [*] of receipt of any such request.

Production Management

    McQueen will be responsible for managing the production of all component materials through either internal or external manufacturing resources. It is anticipated that product design, file manipulation, and any translation/localization will be collaborative between McQueen and Adobe. All aspects of purchasing, production scheduling, coordination, and payment for components manufactured on Adobe's behalf, however, will be McQueen's sole responsibility. This includes responsibility for quality control of manufactured components as described below.

Vendor & Materials Management

    McQueen will assume responsibility for the sub-tier vendor management in the areas of performance evaluation, direct purchasing and delivery arrangements. McQueen will also manage materials in a manner which ensures finished goods availability matching forecasted requirements. This includes forecast analysis, production & inventory strategy, and delivery arrangements for each individual component SKU in the Adobe products. McQueen will work with Adobe's AVL, and will have shared responsibility with Adobe for maintaining the relationships with any such vendors.

Delivery / Receiving

    McQueen will be responsible for coordinating, with component manufacturing sites, the delivery of all components to the turnkey site. These arrangements will be made at McQueen's sole discretion and may incorporate special pricing arrangements to limit McQueen's inventory investment. McQueen will be responsible for receiving all component materials and conducting appropriate inspections to verify that both the quantity and quality of such receipts meets with McQueen and Adobe's mutually agreed upon standards of acceptance.



    Addendum to Adobe Systems Inc. Turnkey Agreement for Production of Adobe Program Packages

Warehousing & Inventory Control

    McQueen will store in it's warehouse all components necessary to assemble Adobe finished product, as well as any finished goods up to a mutually agreed upon stocking level. It is agreed that all such materials will be recorded and tracked utilizing McQueen's system, with all inventory being properly identified and stored in computerized bin locations which are properly marked. McQueen will utilize specific step-by-step processes to control and record all inventory movement types including receiving, shipping, components issued to WIP, finished product received from WlP, scrap, location to location transfer, returns, adjustments, and any other miscellaneous inventory activities.

    McQueen will perform cycle counting utilizing the ABC methodology described in Adobe's proposal. Inventory accuracy goals will be [*]. Inventory mm goals will be established on an individual component basis, with a strategy to increase the number of turns continuously where possible.

Product Assembly (authorization & production) build to demand—[*]

    McQueen will utilize Adobe's finished goods build plan to schedule and coordinate all product assemblies. McQueen commits to a maximum of [*] to complete all forecasted assemblies (assuming component inventory availability), and a maximum of [*] to complete any unforecasted assemblies (assuming component inventory availability). McQueen also commits to a [*] mm for forecasted SKUs that are outside of Adobe's planning forecast horizon. McQueen will be responsible for all forecasted component inventory availability.

    McQueen will maintain assembly records for all product assemblies, including the assembly team name, date, shift, and a serial number range for quick resolution if defects are found.

Order Processing

    McQueen will accept distribution orders from Adobe, either in electronic or hard copy form. These orders will be processed for shipment directly to Adobe customers per Adobe's specifications and requirements. McQueen guarantees that all such orders received before 12:00 p.m. Pacific Time will be processed and shipped on the same day of receipt by McQueen. McQueen will utilize carriers specified by Adobe or it's customers, and will coordinate all aspects of both domestic and international shipments.

Obsolete materials

    Adobe will accept obsolescence costs related to raw materials or finished goods inventory to the level of the forecasted volumes. Any obsolescence associated with unforecasted inventories of components or finished goods will be McQueen's responsibility.

Teardowns and Reconfiguration

    Teardowns and reconfigurations will be processed according to Adobe's requirements and wilt be priced separate from this manufacturing and distribution agreement.


    McQueen will furnish complete inventory, transaction and performance reporting according to the requirements outlined in Adobe's Manufacturing Operations Turnkey Requirements Document. These reports include:

    2.  Description of Financial Model (Pricing)  

Pricing structure

    This Flat Turnkey Fee model incorporates a single flat turnkey fee which remains fixed across all kits in the Frame product family, plus a variable assembly fee which fluctuates directly with the complexity of the kits, plus materials cost passed through to Adobe as landed cost (McQueen's total cost for such materials).

    McQueen's pricing to Adobe is structured as a 2-tiered model incorporating all of the services described above.

A Flat Turnkey Fee of [*] which is to be included in the in the Program Management Fee section on each quote to Adobe which includes a management team as set forth in Schedule A attached hereto, security costs and materials markup designed to cover incoming inspection costs, storage of raw materials and carrying costs. The first quarter's fees begin when product first ships and will initially be set at [*].

McQueen's [*].

[*] of the quoted BOM's—see Schedule B attached hereto.

[*]—see Schedule C attached hereto.

Conditions to pricing

    Assembly Pricing is quoted to Adobe based upon specific parameters provided to Addendum to Adobe Systems Inc. Turnkey Agreement for Production of Adobe Program Packages

    McQueen.  These parameters include (i) BOMs as provided, (ii) estimated quarterly volume of [*] units and (iii) average work order quantity estimated at [*] units.



Pricing will be reviewed semi-annually and measured against these assumptions. Any significant fluctuations (+/- 10%) to these assumptions will result in modifications to McQueen's pricing to Adobe. All prices are quoted F.O.B. Origin.

Duration of pricing & review guidelines

McQueen's flat turnkey fee pricing is firm for one year, unless modifications occur as stipulated above. Assembly pricing is also firm for one year, and will not be modified unless government mandated regulations cause an increase in McQueen's cost of providing these services. Materials pricing will fluctuate according to normal purchase price fluctuations in the marketplace.

Inventory ownership

McQueen will purchase and carry all forecasted component level inventory on Adobe's behalf for subsequent assembly into Adobe kits. This will include inventory purchased from both internal and external sources. Any consigned materials supplied by Adobe and stored within McQueen's facility will be owned by Adobe.

Addendum to Adobe Systems Inc. Turnkey Agreement for Production of Adobe Program Packages,

Obsolete materials liabilities & disposition

    Any materials purchased according to Adobe's forecast, which are not subject to McQueen's complete vendor selection, and carried for a period of more than 120 days will be discussed accordingly. Adobe will be responsible for an), obsolescence resulting from forecast inaccuracies. McQueen will be responsible for obsolescence resulting from any purchases exceeding the forecasted quantities, and any other non-authorized (by Adobe) reasons.

Payment terms

    Payment terms will be 30 days Net.

Changes to pricing

    All pricing will be reviewed quarterly. Any changes to projected volumes and product mix for the previous quarter will result in appropriate modifications to the fiat turnkey fee.


    McQueen will maintain and adhere to ISO 9002 standards throughout all of it's processes. Once certification is received, Adobe will be welcome to review both internal and external audit results. The following quality processes will be in place and adhered to on an ongoing basis:

Inspection Data—McQueen will collect inspection (DPM) data for incoming materials, work in-process and final product inspections. This includes both turnkey operations, as well as our vertically integrated printing operations. Our goal will be to maintain DPM rates in all categories [*].

Root Cause Analysis—Quality issues will be resolved down to the level of root cause to prevent recurrence. McQueen will maintain a database of the knowledge gained from these root cause analyses, and will utilize this information to detect trends and prevent problems. Pareto charts will be prepared and supplied to Adobe on a monthly basis.



Corrective Action—Any problems discovered in the field (after leaving McQueen's turnkey facility) which are thought to be caused by McQueen, will be responded to by McQueen within 24 hours of the incident being reported. This response will include the time frame for completing the investigation & analysis, and problem resolution.

Quarterly Business Reviews

    Adobe will conduct quarterly business reviews to report activities, projects, performance results, and any ongoing issues. The goal of these meetings will be to determine short and long term direction benefiting both companies. Appropriate metrics will be determined for all subject matter and reporting issues.
