1.Definitions. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning provided in the Agreements.
1.Parties agree to amend Section 2.3.4 (Conditions Precedent) of each Agreement to update a reference in the last sentence, so that Section 2.3.4 reads as follows:
“2.3.4 If either Condition Precedent has been neither satisfied nor waived by the CP Deadline (as such CP Deadline may be revised pursuant to Section 2.3.3), then at any time after such CP Deadline either Party may give to the other Party a notice of termination of this Agreement. Such notice of termination shall be effective in accordance with Section 19.3.3 if either Condition Precedent remains neither satisfied nor waived prior to the applicable termination date.
2.Parties agree to amend each Agreement to insert a new Section 2.3.5 in each Agreement, as follows:
“2.3.5 Seller shall give Buyer five (5) Day prior written notice of Seller’s estimation of the start of a 5-Day window in which the CP Fulfillment Date is likely to occur (“5-Day Window”), provided that in no event the CP Fulfillment Date shall occur prior to the start of the 5-Day Window. Seller may revise such notice, one or more times, by written notice, provided that such revision may only postpone the 5-Day Window. In the event Seller is in breach of this Section 2.3.5, this shall be a Termination Event under Section 19.2.15 and Buyer may elect to give Seller a notice of termination of this Agreement under Section 19.3.3 within five (5) Days of becoming aware of such breach.”
3.Parties agree to amend the Agreement to insert a new Section 19.2.15 as follows:
“19.2.15 in respect of Buyer, in accordance with Section 2.3.5.”
4.Parties agree to amend Section 19.3.3 (Termination) of each Agreement to insert a reference to Section 19.2.4 and 19.2.15, so that Section 19.3.3 reads as follows:

a.Force and Effect. All provisions of the Agreements not specifically amended hereby shall remain in full force and effect.
b.Governing Law. This Amendment shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (United States of America) without regard to principles of conflict of laws that would specify the use of other laws.

Each Agreement, as amended by this Amendment, constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties, and includes all promises and representations, express or implied, and supersedes all other prior agreements and representations, written or oral, between the Parties relating to the subject matter thereof.
e.Severability. If a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitral tribunal determines that any clause or provision of this Amendment is void, illegal, or unenforceable, the other clauses and provisions of the Amendment shall remain in full force and effect and the clauses and provisions which are determined to be void, illegal, or unenforceable shall be limited so that they shall remain in effect to the maximum extent permissible by law.
