In the event SGSIL from time to time experiences limited delivery capacity as a result of Force Majeure (as defined in Section 9) or as a result of demand for Products by Customer in excess of the maximum quantity amounts set out in Section 3 and Attachment 2 (a "Limited Capacity Period"), SGSIL shall use its [****] efforts to allocate delivery of Products to Customer and SGSIL's other customers in proportion to Customer's and other customers' relative orders for forecasted amounts of Products and their orders for Products in excess of forecasted amounts. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Customer agrees that such [****] efforts by SGSIL shall constitute adequate performance of SGSIL's obligations under this Agreement during a Limited Capacity Period. 9.

Such suspension of performance shall not affect any delivery under a Blanket Purchase Order for a delivery date that is prior to the date of suspension of performance or an additional purchase order accepted by SGSIL prior to the date of suspension of performance. The suspension of performance shall not prejudice the rights or liabilities of the Parties with respect to Product sold, or any indebtedness then owing by either party to the other. -6- <PAGE> No single instance of suspension of performance may exceed [****], nor must performance be suspended by one Party more than [****] in any [****] period under the Agreement.
