|2.||Baseband Products Purchase Commitment.|
A. If Freescale is competitive with respect to pricing, timing and features, then through December 31, 2006, Motorola will purchase from Freescale 100% of Motorolas total purchases of Baseband Semiconductor Family products required to manufacture handsets within the Motorola PCS 2/2.5G/GSM/GPRS/EDGE Product Families, the Motorola PCS 3G/UMTS Product Families, and the Motorola IDEN Product Families (the Baseband Products). For the purposes of this Agreement, Motorolas obligation to purchase Baseband Products through December 31, 2006 is referred to as the Purchase Commitment.
B. The parties acknowledge that Motorola utilizes third party original design manufacturers (ODMs) to design and manufacture certain handsets within the Motorola Product Families for resale to Motorola (ODM Products). The Purchase Commitment excludes (i) purchases made by ODMs to manufacture ODM Products, (ii) purchases made by Motorola and resold to either ODMs or contract manufacturers to manufacture ODM Products, or (iii) purchases made by Motorola to enable the manufacture of handsets that are replacements for ODM Products, provided such replacements are based on ODM Products formerly manufactured by an ODM, do not utilize the Synergy or Moto-Juix software application frameworks, and would be prohibitive to manufacture with respect to cost or time to market using a Freescale Baseband Product, as compared to either the baseband chipset originally in such ODM Products or the then-currently available replacement for that original chipset. For clarity, if a third party contract manufacturer manufactures handsets designed by Motorola, in whole or in part, then the Purchase Commitment applies to purchases of Baseband Products for such handsets. During the term of this Agreement, Motorola will continue to use commercially reasonable efforts to develop products with its ODMs that incorporate Products from Freescale.
C. The parties acknowledge that Motorola may from time to time acquire third party original equipment manufacturers (Acquired OEMs) that manufacture handsets (Acquired OEM Products). The Purchase Commitment excludes purchases made by Motorola to enable the manufacture of Acquired OEM Products either formerly manufactured by or for an Acquired OEM or scheduled to be manufactured, if it would be prohibitive to either manufacture or change the schedule for manufacturing such Acquired OEM Products with respect to cost or time to market using a Freescale Baseband Product, as compared to either the baseband chipset originally in such Acquired OEM Products or the then-currently available replacement for that original chipset.
|3.||Development Agreements for Baseband Products.|
A. The parties will in good faith negotiate a Development Agreement for each Baseband Product required by Motorola during the term of this Agreement. Motorola will design into its Product Families the Freescale Baseband Products listed in the attached Baseband Schedule to this Supplement, and enter into appropriate Development Agreements within 90 days of the Effective Date of this Agreement. If Motorola identifies any requirement for Baseband Products that is not included in the Baseband Schedule, then Motorola will promptly notify Freescale and within 30 days the parties will enter into negotiations toward the necessary Development Agreement. If the parties are unable to agree on pricing, timing and features for Baseband Products, then prior to negotiating more detailed terms and conditions of a required Development Agreement, the parties will escalate those issues for resolution in accordance with Section 4(B) below.
B. Freescales proposal to supply the required Baseband Product must be competitive with respect to pricing, timing and features. If the parties are unable to reach agreement within 30 days after the commencement of negotiations, the matter will be referred to their respective Chief Executive Officers for resolution. If the Chief Executive Officers are unable to resolve the matter within 10 days after the referral, either party may submit the matter to mediation by providing written notice to the other party. The parties will cooperate on selection of a mediator and use best efforts to resolve the matter through the mediation process within 30 days after issuance of the notice requesting mediation. If despite best efforts the parties are unable to resolve the matter through mediation, then either party may request submission of the matter to a qualified, independent neutral expert experienced in the industry, such as a partner in a certified public accounting firm or other mutually acceptable appraiser (the Neutral Expert), by providing written notice to the other party. Within 10 days after written notice requesting submission to a Neutral Expert, the parties will choose a mutually acceptable Neutral Expert. Neither party will unreasonably withhold consent to the selection of the Neutral Expert. Within 10 days after the Neutral Expert is selected, Motorola will present evidence to the Neutral Expert in support of its position that Freescale is not competitive with respect to pricing, timing or features. The Neutral Expert will evaluate but not disclose Motorolas evidence, and within 7 days of receipt of evidence from both parties, will advise Freescale whether its proposal is not competitive, and the category (i.e. price, timing or features) with respect to which Freescale is not competitive. Freescale will have 7 days after receipt of the Neutral Experts guidance to provide the
Neutral Expert with a revised proposal, and the Neutral Expert will determine whether the revised proposal is competitive with respect to pricing, timing and features. If the Neutral Expert determines that the revised proposal is competitive with respect to pricing, timing and features, it shall serve as the basis for the parties contract. If the Neutral Expert determines that the revised proposal is still not competitive with respect to pricing, timing and features, Motorola will be free to pursue an alternative supplier for the required product.
|4.||Conditions to Preserve Purchase Commitment.|
Motorolas Purchase Commitment obligation is subject to the following conditions:
A. Capacity. Freescale will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain appropriate capacity to meet Motorolas forecasted demand for Products. Motorola will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide accurate forecasts. Should Freescale fail to maintain such capacity or should Motorolas actual requirements exceed its forecasts, Motorola will be entitled to purchase comparable products from an alternate supplier in such quantities as are required to meet Motorolas actual requirements, and such purchases will be excluded from the Purchase Commitment. Should Freescale manage to add additional capacity, Motorola will transition from the alternate suppliers product to the Freescale Product as soon as commercially reasonable (not to exceed 16 weeks). If Motorola was required to make contractual commitments to the alternate supplier regarding volume commitments in order to procure an interim supply of Non-Baseband Products, then such contractual requirements will take precedence over the Purchase Commitment. Motorola will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid making such contractual commitments.
B. Delivery. Freescale will meet its delivery obligations under Section 3.4 of the Agreement. Should Freescale fail to deliver any Product pursuant to mutually agreed delivery schedules on a pervasive basis, Motorola will be entitled to purchase comparable products from an alternate supplier in such quantities as are required to meet the affected delivery schedules, and such purchases will be excluded from the Purchase Commitment. When Freescale is able to resume timely deliveries, Motorola will transition from the alternate suppliers product to the Freescale Product as soon as commercially reasonable (not to exceed 16 weeks). If Motorola was required to make contractual commitments to the alternate supplier regarding volume commitments in order to procure an interim supply of Non-Baseband Products, then such contractual requirements will take precedence over the Purchase Commitment. Motorola will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid making such contractual commitments.
C. Quality. If any Freescale Product becomes subject to an Epidemic Failure, Motorola will be entitled to purchase comparable products from an alternate supplier in lieu of the Product affected by the Epidemic Failure during the time that Freescale is attempting to cure the Epidemic Failure, and such purchases will be excluded from the Purchase Commitment. Once Freescale can reasonably demonstrate that it has cured the failure, Motorola will transition from the alternate suppliers product to the Freescale Product as soon as commercially reasonable (not to exceed 16 weeks). If Motorola was required to make contractual commitments to the alternate supplier regarding volume commitments in order to procure an interim supply of Non-Baseband Products, then such contractual requirements will take precedence over the Purchase Commitment. Motorola will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid making such contractual commitments.
D. Development Milestones. Freescale will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet its milestones under Development Agreements. As its sole remedy under this Agreement, Motorola will be entitled to terminate a Development Agreement and enter into a development agreement with another supplier if Freescale fails to meet any milestone under such Development Agreements, and such failure (i) has a material impact on Motorolas product introduction schedule and (ii) is not caused by a Motorola delay such as a change in the specification for the Product or a failure by Motorola to meet one of its milestones. The parties may agree to additional remedies in the Development Agreements for failure to meet milestones in such Agreements. If Motorola enters into such a development agreement with another supplier following the termination of a Development Agreement, purchases made pursuant to such development agreement will be excluded from the Purchase Commitment. Should Freescale continue the development of a Product after termination of the applicable Development Agreement on an independent basis and develop a Product that meets the specifications, then Motorola will use commercially reasonable efforts, time permitting, to qualify the Freescale Product and transition from the alternate suppliers product to the Freescale Product as soon as commercially reasonable (not to exceed 16 weeks). If Motorola was required to make contractual commitments to the alternate supplier regarding volume commitments in order to get the supplier to enter into the development agreement, then such contractual requirements will take precedence over the Purchase Commitment. Motorola will use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid making such contractual commitments.
5. Preferred Supplier for Non-Baseband Products. Freescale will be Motorolas Preferred Supplier for products from the Power Amp (PA) Semiconductor Family, the Power Management Semiconductor Family, and the RF/IF Semiconductor Family (Non-Baseband Products). Preferred Supplier means that Freescale will be given an equal opportunity to bid on all Non-Baseband Products required by Motorola, and if Freescales bid is equal to or better than other bids received by Motorola with respect to pricing, timing and features, then Freescale will be awarded a percentage share that is consistent with a commercially reasonable dual source strategy. The parties acknowledge that while Motorolas preferred suppliers typically receive between 25% to 75% share of Motorolas requirements, no particular percentage commitment for Non-Baseband Products is intended under this Section. If Freescale submits a bid for a Non-Baseband Product opportunity, and is not selected, Freescale may submit the matter to the dispute resolution mechanism detailed in Section 3B of this Supplement. The parties will enter into Development Agreements for Non-Baseband Products awarded to Freescale that will establish terms for the sale of such Non-Baseband Products. If not already in place, the parties will promptly begin negotiations toward Development Agreements for the Non-Baseband Products listed in the Non-Baseband Schedule to this Supplement. All of the conditions set out in Section 4(A), (B), (C) and (D) above apply to Motorolas obligation to purchase the minimum share awarded to Freescale pursuant to Motorolas commercially reasonable dual source strategy. In addition, provided Motorola makes commercially reasonable efforts throughout the term of this Agreement to design Non-Baseband Products into such quantities and types of handsets that are in the aggregate, out of the entire portfolio of handsets designed by Motorola, reasonably likely and in good faith intended to achieve purchases of whatever minimum share Motorola awards Freescale for such Products, Motorola will not be deemed to be in breach of its commitment to purchase such share if Motorolas failure to is caused by Motorola designing Freescale Products into particular models of handsets that (i) do not sell as many units as equivalent handsets containing products from alternate suppliers or (ii) do not launch on the dates planned resulting in a delay on the end-of-life of handsets that contain products from alternate suppliers. Motorola will use good faith efforts to cure any such failures but Freescale shall have no claim against Motorola regarding such failures including claims that Motorola failed to use good faith efforts to cure.
6. Quarterly Linkage Meetings. The parties will participate in quarterly linkage meetings to share roadmaps, scheduling and ensure progress of the Development Agreements.
7. Quarterly Review and Correction Procedure.
A. No more than 30 days following the end of each calendar quarter during the Term, the parties will jointly review Motorolas performance to its Purchase Commitments, in light of applicable adjustments and conditions in the prior quarter.
B. If the parties determine that in the preceding quarter Motorola did not meet its Purchase Commitment, Motorola will make a correction payment to Freescale within 30 days equivalent to the gross margin Freescale would have realized had Motorola met such obligation.
C. If the parties are unable to reach agreement on the respective performance of the parties and appropriate corresponding corrections, if necessary, to achieve the Purchase Commitment, then within 15 days from the date either party notifies the other of its election to audit following failure to reach agreement, the parties will select a mutually acceptable, independent, nationally recognized auditor to review the relevant books and records of the parties to verify compliance with the requirements of this Attachment. If the audit reveals that Motorola has not met the Purchase Commitment, then the parties will go through the correction procedures set forth in subparagraph B above as if they had mutually determined that Motorola did not meet its Purchase Commitment in the preceding quarter at their quarterly review meeting.
8. Valuation upon Termination. Upon the termination of this Agreement by Freescale pursuant to Sections 4.2 or 4.3 of the Agreement, Freescale will submit to Motorola within 30 days from the termination date a good faith claim based on the gross margin for Products that Motorola would have purchased had it met the Purchase Commitment, if any, taking into consideration Freescales ability to mitigate the claim through the sale of Products to other parties. Motorola must notify Freescale in writing of its acceptance or rejection of the Freescale valuation within 10 business days of receipt of the valuation. Failure to provide this notice will constitute rejection of the Freescale valuation. If Motorola rejects the Freescale valuation, then the matter will be subject to the dispute resolution process set forth in Section 23.12 of the Agreement. Upon acceptance or resolution of the Purchase Commitment valuation, Motorola will pay the valuation amount to Freescale as provided in Section 9 (Payment Terms) of the Agreement. Upon payment of the valuation amount,
Freescale will provide mutually agreed Products in amounts corresponding to the payment (if payment is full purchase price).
