(b) as of the Effective Date, there is no legal, administrative, arbitration, or other proceeding, suit, claim, or action of any nature, judgment, decree, decision, injunction, writ, or order pending or, to the knowledge of Licensee’s senior management, threatened by, against Licensee regarding this Agreement, whether at law or in equity, before or by any Third Party; and Licensee shall provide notice of any of the foregoing to the extent it affects Licensee’s performance of its obligations under this Agreement;

(c) except for information provided by Licensor, its Affiliates or Sublicensees: (i) the data and information in Licensee’s submissions and modifications of Regulatory Documentation relating to the Product shall be free from fraud or material falsity; (ii) Regulatory Approvals for the Product hereafter obtained will not be obtained either through bribery or the payment of illegal gratuities by Licensee; (iii) the data and information in Licensee’s submissions and modifications of any Regulatory Documentation shall be accurate and reliable; and (iv) any such the Regulatory Approvals will be obtained without illegal or unethical behavior of any kind by Licensee; provided that Licensee shall not be deemed to be in breach of this Section 10.3(c) if the violation of this Section 10.3(c) results from the action or omission of Licensor or its Affiliates, Sublicensees (other than Licensee), or contractors; and

(d) except as expressly permitted hereunder, Licensee agrees not to, and agrees to cause its Affiliates and Sublicensees not to (i) assign, transfer, convey or otherwise encumber any right, title or interest in or to the Licensed Rights, the Sublicensed Rights, or any Regulatory Approvals and Documentation in respect of the Product, (ii) grant in any manner any license or other right, title or interest in or to any of the Licensed Rights, the Sublicensed Rights, or the Regulatory Approvals and Documentation in respect of the Product, (iii) agree to or otherwise become bound by any covenant not to sue for any infringement, misuse or other action or inaction with respect to any of the Licensed Rights, the Sublicensed Rights, or the Regulatory Approvals and Documentation in respect of the Product, or (iv) bring any action or proceeding or otherwise assert any claim under any Applicable Law in the event any licensee (or sublicensee or any entity or person acting on its behalf) initiates any proceeding or otherwise assert any claim in any court, administrative agency, or other forum with jurisdiction over such proceeding or claim, that any of the Licensed Rights or Sublicensed Rights are invalid, unenforceable, or not infringed, violated, or misappropriated. In the event that Licensee or any Affiliate or Sublicensee of Licensee initiates any proceeding or otherwise asserts any claim in violation of clause (iv) of this Section 10.3, and the result thereof is a final decision, ruling, holding, award, or other disposition to the effect that any of the Licensed Rights or Sublicensed Rights are valid, enforceable, or infringed, violated, or misappropriated, then each of the royalty rates set forth in the table in Section 8.3(a) will each be increased by [*] and the party initiating such proceeding or otherwise asserting such claim shall pay the attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred by Licensor in defending against such proceeding or claim.

 

10.4 Inaccuracies.

1. 진술 및 보증조항 관련 분쟁

정유회사의 M&A 주식양수도계약서에서 '양도인은 양수인에게 주식양수도계약 체결일 및 양수도 실행일에 일체의 행정법규를 위반한 사실이 없고, 이와 관련하여 행정기관으로부터 조사를 받고 있거나 협의를 진행하는 것은 없다는 내용의 진술 및 보증조항, 나아가 '양수도 실행일 이후 보증 위반사항이 발견된 경우나 약속사항 위반으로 손해가 발생할 경우 500억원을 초과하지 않는 범위 내에서 배상하기로 한다'는 책임조항이 포함되어 있었습니다.

 

그런데, 양도인 회사는 군용유류 구매입찰에서 담합행위 등 공정거래법을 위반했다는 이유로 거액의 과징금 납부명령을 받았고 거액의 손해배상청구소송까지 제기 받았습니다. 이에 양수인이 진술 및 보증조항 위반을 이유로 책임조항을 적용하여 양도인에 대한 손해배상청구 소송을 제기하였습니다.

 

2. 항소심 서울고등법원 200819678 판결

항소심 법원은 양수인도 진술 및 보증위반 사항을 알면서도 계약을 체결했다는 이유로 양도인의 책임을 인정하지 않았습니다. 판결문 중 핵심부분을 인용하면 다음과 같습니다. "양수인도 이 사건 담합행위에 직접 참여했던 탓에 주식양수도계약 체결 당시에 이미 이 사건 진술 및 보증 조항의 위반사실을 알고 있었고, 계약협상 및 가격산정에 반영할 수 있었음에도 방치하였다가 이후 위반사실이 존재한다는 사정을 들어 양도인 피고에게 책임을 묻는 것은 공평의 이념 및 신의칙상 허용될 수 없으므로, 양도인 피고는 위와 같은 악의의 주식양수인인 원고에 대하여 이 사건 진술 및 보증 조항의 위반에 따른 책임을 부담하지 않는다."

 

3. 대법원 201264253 판결

원심판결을 파기 환송하였습니다. "이 사건 주식양수도계약의 양수도 실행일 이후에 이 사건 진술 및 보증 조항의 위반사항이 발견되고 그로 인하여 손해가 발생하면, 원고가 그 위반사항을 계약체결 당시 알았는지 여부와 관계없이, 피고들이 원고에게 그 위반사항과 상당인과관계 있는 손해를 배상하기로 하는 합의를 한 것으로 봄이 상당하다.

 

양수인 원고가 이 사건 진술 및 보증조항과 관련된 이 사건 담합행위를 알고 있었고 이 사건 담합행위로 인한 공정거래위원회의 제재 가능성 등을 이 사건 주식양수도대금 산정에 반영할 기회를 가지고 있었다고 하더라도 그러한 점만으로 원고의 손해배상청구가 공평의 이념 및 신의칙에 반한다고 볼 수 없다."

 

4. 실무적 함의

대법원 판결은 계약서 문언이 가장 중요하다는 원칙을 다시 한번 확인하였습니다. 비록 계약체결 당시 당사자가 진술 및 보증 조항의 위반사실을 알고 있었다고 해도 계약서 효력을 함부로 부정할 수 없다고 명확하게 판결하였습니다.

 

처분문서인 계약서의 계약문언이 그 객관적 의미가 명확하다면 특별한 사정이 없는 한 문언대로의 의사표시의 존재와 내용을 인정하여야 합니다. 설령 공평의 이념이나 신의칙을 적용해야 할 사정이 있다고 하더라도, 이과 같은 일반원칙에 근거하여 계약의 효력을 부정하거나 계약상 책임을 제한하는 것은 사적 자치의 원칙이나 법적 안정성에 대한 중대한 위협이 될 수 있으므로 신중을 기하여 극히 예외적으로 인정하여야 한다는 입장입니다.

 

, 무엇보다 계약서 문언을 가장 중시하고 신의칙이나 공평이념 등을 아주 예외적으로 극히 신중하게 적용하라는 취지입니다. 가능성을 완전히 배제하는 것은 아니지만 현실적으로 실제 사례에서 그와 같은 특별한 경우는 인정되기 어렵다는 의미입니다.

 

5. 진술 및 보증 조항 위반과 손해배상책임 범위: 대법원 2018. 7. 20. 선고 2015207044 판결

(1) M&A 계약에서 진술 및 보증 조항을 둔 목적은, 계약 종결과 이행 이후 진술 및 보증하였던 내용과 다른 사실이 발견되어 일방 당사자에게 손해가 발생한 경우에 상대방에게 그 손해를 배상하게 함으로써, 불확실한 상황에 관한 경제적 위험을 배분하고 사후에 현실화된 손해를 감안하여 매매대금을 조정할 수 있게 하기 위한 것이다.

 

(2) M&A 대상회사에 대한 소송이나 분쟁의 존재는 우발채무에 따른 손실로 이어질 가능성이 있어 진술 및 보증의 대상으로 삼는 것이다.

 

(3) 매도인이 대상회사에 대한 소송이나 분쟁을 고지하지 않았고 이후 대상회사에 실제로 우발채무가 발생한 경우 언제나 그 전부가 손해배상의 범위에 포함된다고 볼 수는 없다. 3자가 대상회사를 상대로 터무니없는 소송을 제기하였음에도 매도인이 이를 알리지 않은 상태에서 M&A 계약이 종결, 이행되었는데, 매도인에게 책임을 물을 수 있으므로 매수인으로서는 실질적 피해가 없다는 이유로 대상회사로 하여금 별다른 다툼 없이 거액의 합의금을 지급하도록 하는 경우와 같이, 매도인에게 과도한 책임을 지우는 결과를 초래할 수 있기 때문이다.

 

(4) 그러나 소송 또는 분쟁으로부터 직접 그리고 자연스럽게 도출되거나 합리적으로 예상가능한 범위의 손해에 관하여는 매도인이 그에 관한 배상책임을 부담하여야 한다.

 

(5) 매수인이 거래 종결 후 대상회사 주식을 매각하는 경우 대부분 매수인은 후속 매수인에게 진술 및 보증을 하고 그 위반으로 인한 책임을 부담하게 된다.

 

(6) 만약 매도인의 진술 및 보증 조항 위반으로 매수인의 주식 매각 이후 대상회사에 손실이 발생하고, 그로 인해 매수인이 새로운 매수인에 대하여 책임을 부담하게 되었음에도, 매수인이 주식을 매각하여 주주의 지위에 있지 않다는 이유로 당초의 매도인에게 책임을 물을 수 없는 결과에 이른다면 경제적 위험의 적정한 배분이라는 진술 및 보증 조항의 목적에 반하게 된다.

 

(7) 따라서 당사자들 사이에 특별한 합의가 없다면 매수인이 대상회사의 주식을 처분하더라도 손해배상청구 및 액수 산정에 별다른 영향을 미치지 않는다.

License 후 공동연구개발을 진행하지만 완료까지 오랜 기간이 소요되는 경우, 기술보유 licensor 벤처회사가 투자유치 또는 M&A 등으로 지배권 변동이 발생하기도 합니다. Licensee의 경쟁회사에서 licensor 회사를 M&A하는 경우는 물론, 제품라인이 중복되거나 연구개발전략이 전혀 달리하는 등 다양한 사유로 collaboration 관계를 지속하기 어려운 상황을 맞기도 합니다.

 

이와 같은 상황에 대비하여 미리 해결방안을 계약조항으로 규정해 두는 것이 바람직합니다. 다양한 쟁점이 있겠지만, 최근 올려드린 자문의 계약서 중 해당 조항을 뽑아 아래와 같이 인용합니다. 찬찬히 읽어 보고 살펴보시기 바랍니다.

 

정의 - "CHANGE IN CONTROL" shall mean, with respect to either Party, any of the following events: (i) the acquisition by any Major Pharmaceutical Company of "beneficial ownership" directly or indirectly, of 50% or more of the shares of such Party's capital stock, the holders of which have general voting power under ordinary circumstances to elect at least a majority of such Party's Board of Directors or equivalent body (the "Board of Directors") (the "Voting Stock"); (ii) the approval by the shareholders of such Party of a merger, share exchange, reorganization, consolidation or similar transaction of such Party (a "Transaction"), if any party to the transaction is a Major Pharmaceutical Company other than a Transaction which would result in the beneficial owners of Voting Stock of such Party immediately prior thereto continuing to beneficially own (either by such Voting Stock remaining outstanding or being converted into voting securities of the surviving entity) more than 50% of the Voting Stock of such Party or such surviving entity immediately after such Transaction; or (iii) approval by the shareholders of such Party of a complete liquidation of such Party or a sale or disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of such Party.

 

처리방안 계약조항 - CHANGE IN CONTROL. In the event there shall be a Change in Control with respect to either Party, the Party not involved in the Change in Control shall have a period of ninety (90) days following the Change in Control to give notice to the other Party that it desires to terminate this Agreement. If such notice is given, then the Parties shall arrange for a valuation of the value of their respective interests in this Agreement using the procedures set forth in Section 12.7(b)(i).

 

Upon receipt of the valuation, the Party not involved in the Change in Control shall have the option within thirty (30) days of receipt of the valuation either to (i) withdraw its notice terminating this Agreement or (ii) confirm its desire to terminate, in that case the Party experiencing the Change in Control shall elect either to (a) purchase the other Party's interest at the established value or (b) sell its own interest to the other Party at the appraised value of its interest. The Parties shall negotiate in good faith such other terms and conditions and take such other actions as shall be necessary to effect the sale or purchase contemplated hereby within the shortest possible time.

8.5. Change of Control.

 

8.5.1. Change of Control Notice. Astellas will notify Ironwood in writing, referencing this Section 8.5.1 of this Agreement, immediately upon any Change of Control of Astellas, and will provide such notice where possible at least 60 days prior to the Change of Control.

 

8.5.2. Consequences of a Change of Control.

 

(a) In the event that Astellas is subject to a Change of Control which could reasonably be expected to lead to an Impairment (as defined below), Astellas will notify Ironwood at least [**] days prior to the closing of such transaction, and Ironwood may elect, in its sole discretion, to (i) continue this Agreement in accordance with its terms, (ii) terminate this Agreement on [**] months notice, during which period this Agreement would continue in effect in accordance with its terms, such notice to be delivered within [**] days after the Fair Market Value is determined pursuant to this Section 8.5.2(a). Within [**] days following Ironwood’s receipt of notice from Astellas of a Change of Control that could reasonably be expected to lead to an Impairment, Ironwood will provide notice to Astellas requesting a determination of the Fair Market Value upon a termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.5.2(a), and the failure to so request such valuation will be deemed the election to continue this Agreement in accordance with its terms. Such determination must be made by the Parties in good faith, and if such determination is not made within [**] days of the request, then as determined by a Valuation Panel. In connection with such termination, Ironwood will be required to pay Astellas an amount equal to the upfront portion of the Fair Market Value within ten days of the effective date of the termination, and, as they become due, payment of any ongoing, and/or recurring license fees, royalties, and other payments that may be part of Fair Market Value.

 

(b) For purposes of this Section 8.5.2, an “Impairment” will only be deemed to occur if (a) it is reasonably anticipated that the entity resulting from such Change of Control will be unable to perform its obligations in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, as reasonably determined based on objective criteria available to both Parties, including without limitation, the new entity’s financial position and product pipeline, (b) the product line of the entity that survives following the Change of Control includes a product in an Oral Formulation in the Field that is in clinical development which is indicated for the treatment of IBSC, CC, OIC (unless as to any such indication, the JSC has determined not to pursue Development for such indication) or any other indication for which the Product is then being Commercialized in the Territory pursuant to this Agreement.

23.2 General Indemnification by Hospira. Hospira shall defend, indemnify and hold CyDex and its Affiliates, and each of their respective directors, officers, agents and employees, harmless from and against any and all Losses incurred as a result of any Claim by a Third Party, to the extent such Losses arise out of: (a) the manufacture, use, handling, promotion, marketing, distribution, importation, sale or offering for sale of the Finished Product by Hospira, its Affiliates and Sublicensees, or (b) Hospira’s breach of this Agreement, including without limitation any of its representations and warranties set forth in Section 8, or (c) any negligent or willful misconduct by Hospira or its Affiliates or any of their respective distributors, officers, directors employees or agents, in each case to the extent that such Losses are not due to CyDex’s or any of its Affiliates’ or any of their respective directors’, officers’, agents’ or employees’ breach of this Agreement or negligence or willful misconduct.

 

23.4 Procedure.

 

(a) The person intending to claim indemnification under Section 9 (an “Indemnified Party”) shall promptly notify the other party (the “Indemnifying Party”) of any Claim in respect of which the Indemnified Party intends to claim such indemnification, and a reasonable explanation of the basis for the Claim and the amount of alleged Losses to the extent of the facts then known by the Indemnified Party. (Notwithstanding the foregoing, no delay or deficiency on the part of the Indemnified Party in so notifying the Indemnifying Party will relieve the Indemnifying Party of any liability or obligation under this Agreement except to the extent the Indemnifying Party has suffered actual prejudice directly caused by the delay or other deficiency.) The Indemnifying Party shall assume the defense thereof; provided, however, that if the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ counsel separate from counsel employed by the Indemnifying Party in any such action and to participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel employed by the Indemnified Party shall be at the sole cost and expense of the Indemnified Party unless the Indemnifying Party consents to the retention of such counsel or unless the named parties to any action or proceeding include both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party and a representation of both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to the actual or potential differing interests between them. And provided further that, if the Indemnifying Party shall fail to assume the defense of and reasonably defend such Claim, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to retain or assume control of such defense and the Indemnifying Party shall pay (as incurred and on demand) the fees and expenses of counsel retained by the Indemnified Party.

 

(b) The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for the indemnification of any Claim settled (or resolved by consent to the entry of judgment) without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Also, if the Indemnifying Party shall control the defense of any such Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall have the right to settle such Claim; provided, that the Indemnifying Party shall obtain the prior written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) of the Indemnified Party before entering into any settlement of (or resolving by consent to the entry of judgment upon) such Claim unless (A) there is no finding or admission of any violation of law or any violation of the rights of any Third Party by an Indemnified Party, no requirement that the Indemnified Party admit fault or culpability, and no adverse effect on any other claims that may be made by or against the Indemnified Party and (B) the sole relief provided is monetary damages that are paid in full by the Indemnifying Party and such settlement does not require the Indemnified Party to take (or refrain from taking) any action.

 

(c) Regardless of who controls the defense, the other party hereto shall reasonably cooperate in the defense as may be requested. Without limitation, the Indemnified Party, and its directors, officers, advisers, agents and employees, shall reasonably cooperate with the Indemnifying Party and its legal representatives in the investigations of any Claim.

21. CONFIDENTIALITY. 

 

21.1 Definition. Hospira and CyDex each recognizes that, during the Term, it may be necessary for a party (the “Disclosing Party”) to provide Confidential Information (as defined herein) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”) that is highly valuable, the disclosure of which would be highly prejudicial to such party. The disclosure and use of Confidential Information will be governed by the provisions of this Section 7. Neither Hospira nor CyDex shall use the other’s Confidential Information except as expressly permitted in this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by the Disclosing Party to the Receiving Party in any form whatsoever, including but not limited to product specifications, data, know-how, formulations, product concepts, sample materials, business and technical information, financial data, batch records, trade secrets, processes, techniques, algorithms, programs, designs, drawings, and any other information related to a party’s present or future products, sales, suppliers, customers, employees, investors or business. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, CyDex’s Confidential Information includes all materials provided as part of the Captisol Data Package.

 

21.2 Obligation. CyDex and Hospira agree that they will disclose the other’s Confidential Information to its (or its respective Affiliates’) own officers, employees, consultants and agents only if and to the extent reasonably necessary to carry out their respective responsibilities under this Agreement or in accordance with the exercise of their rights under this Agreement, and such disclosure shall be limited to the extent reasonably possible consistent with such responsibilities and rights. Except as provided in the previous sentence, neither party shall disclose Confidential Information of the other to any Third Party without the other’s prior written consent. Any disclosure to a Third Party shall be pursuant to the terms of a non-disclosure agreement substantially similar to the requirements of this Section 7. The party which disclosed Confidential Information of the other to any Third Party shall be responsible and liable for any disclosure or use by such Third Party (or its disclosees) which would have violated this Agreement if committed by the party itself. Neither party shall use Confidential Information of the other except as expressly allowed by and for the purposes of this Agreement. Each party shall take such action to preserve the confidentiality of each other’s Confidential Information as it would customarily take to preserve the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information (but in no event less than a reasonable standard of care). Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement and subject to terms and conditions in this Agreement, if so requested by the other party a party shall promptly return all relevant records and materials in its possession or control containing or embodying the other party’s Confidential Information (including all copies and extracts of documents); provided, however, that each party may retain one archival copy (and such electronic copies that exist as part of the party’s computer systems, network storage systems and electronic backup systems) of such records and materials solely to be able to monitor its obligations that survive under this Agreement.

 

21.3 Exceptions. The use and non-disclosure obligations set forth in this Section 7 shall not apply to any Confidential Information, or portion thereof, that the Receiving Party can demonstrate by appropriate documentation:

(a) at the time of disclosure is in the public domain;

(b) after disclosure, becomes part of the public domain, by publication or otherwise, through no fault of the Receiving Party or its disclosees;

(c) is independently developed by Receiving Party personnel with no reference or access to the Confidential Information; or

(d) is made available to the Receiving Party by an independent third party without obligation of confidentiality, provided, however, that to the Receiving Party’s knowledge, such information was not obtained by said third party, directly or indirectly, from the Disclosing Party hereunder.

 

In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose information to a court or ADR forum in the process of seeking to enforce through such court or ADR forum its own rights under this Agreement, and also may disclose information that is required to be disclosed by law, by a valid order of a court or by order or regulation of a governmental agency including but not limited to, regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or in the course of litigation, provided that in all cases the Receiving Party shall give the other party prompt notice of the pending disclosure and make a reasonable effort to obtain, or to assist the Disclosing Party in obtaining, a protective order or confidential-treatment order preventing or limiting (to the greatest possible extent and for the longest possible period) the disclosure and/or requiring that the Confidential Information so disclosed be used only for the purposes for which the law or regulation required, or for which the order was issued.

 

21.4 Injunction. Each party agrees that should it breach or threaten to breach any provisions of this Section 7, the Disclosing Party will suffer irreparable damages and its remedy at law will be inadequate. Upon any breach or threatened breach by the Receiving Party of this Section 7, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek from any court of competent jurisdiction temporary, preliminary and/or permanent injunctive relief in addition to any other remedy which it may have, without need to post any bond or security, in addition to any and all other legal and equitable rights and remedies available to the Disclosing Party.

 

21.5 Public Announcements. If a press release is required by law or the applicable rules of a national securities exchange to be issued upon execution of this Agreement or reasonably soon thereafter, the parties will mutually agree on such a press release. Neither party shall make any subsequent public announcement concerning this Agreement or the terms hereof not previously made public without the prior written approval of the other party with regard to the form, content, and precise timing of such announcement, except as may be required to be made by either party in order to comply with applicable law, regulations, court orders, or tax or securities filings. Such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed by such other party. Before any such public announcement, the party wishing to make the announcement will submit a draft of the proposed announcement to the other party in sufficient time to enable such other party to consider and comment thereon. The parties agree that a party may disclose this Agreement’s existence and terms, and material developments or material information generated under this Agreement, in (i) securities filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (or equivalent foreign agency) to the extent required by law, or (ii) under conditions of confidentiality/nonuse in connection with investment and similar corporate transactions. Notwithstanding the above, once a public announcement has been made, either party shall be free to disclose to third parties any information contained in said public announcement.

26.1 Relationship of Parties. Each of the parties hereto is an independent contractor and nothing in this Agreement is intended or shall be deemed to constitute a partnership, agency, employer-employee or joint venture relationship between the parties. No party shall have the right to, and each party agrees not to purport to, incur any debts or make any commitments or contracts for the other.

 

26.2 Compliance with Law. Each of the parties shall comply with all applicable international, federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations, including, but not limited to, import/export restrictions, laws, rules and regulations governing product quality and safety and patent, copyright and trade secret protection.

 

26.3 Arbitration.

 

(a) Procedure. The parties recognize that bona fide disputes may arise which relate to the parties’ rights and obligations under this Agreement. The parties agree that except as provided in Section 7.4, any such dispute shall be resolved by alternative dispute resolution in accordance with the procedure set forth in Exhibit F.

 

(b) Confidentiality of Proceedings. All arbitration proceedings hereunder shall be confidential and the arbitrator(s) shall issue appropriate protective orders to safeguard each party’s Confidential Information. Except as required by law, no party shall make (or instruct the arbitrator(s) to make) any public announcement with respect to the proceedings or decision of the arbitrator(s) without prior written consent of the other party.

 

(c) Binding Effect. The provisions of this Section 12.3 shall survive any expiration or termination of this Agreement, and shall be severable and binding on the parties hereto, notwithstanding that any other provision of this Agreement may be held or declared to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable.

 

26.4 Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable for failure to perform, or delay in the performance of, its obligations under this Agreement (other than payment obligations) when such failure or delay is caused by an event of force majeure. For purposes of this Agreement, an event of force majeure means any event or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of the affected party, including but not limited to, war, insurrection, riot, fire, flood or other unusual weather condition, explosion, act of God, peril of the sea, strike, lockout or other industrial disturbance, sabotage, embargo, act of governmental authority, compliance with governmental order or national defense requirements, or inability to obtain fuel, power, raw materials, labor or transportation facilities. A failure of supply by CyDex’s supplier shall only be deemed an event of force majeure affecting CyDex if caused by a force majeure event affecting such supplier. If, due to any event of force majeure, either party shall be unable to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement (other than payment obligations), the affected party shall immediately notify the other party of such inability and of the period during which such inability is expected to continue and the time for performance [*].

 

26.6 Notices. Any notice, request, or communication under this Agreement shall be effective only if it is in writing and personally delivered; sent by certified mail, postage pre-paid; facsimile with receipt confirmed; or by nationally recognized overnight courier with signature required, addressed to the parties at the addresses stated below or such other persons and/or addresses as shall be furnished in writing by any party in accordance with this Section 12.6. Unless otherwise provided, all notices shall be sent:

 

12.8 Use of Name; Publicity. No party shall use the name, trademark, trade name or logo of the other party, its Affiliates or their respective employee(s) in any publicity, promotion, news release or public disclosure relating to this Agreement or its subject matter, without the prior express written permission of the other party, except as may be required by law or the rules of NASDAQ or the New York Stock Exchange. In the event of a required public announcement, the party making such announcement shall provide the other party with a copy of the proposed text before such announcement sufficiently in advance of the scheduled release of such announcement to afford such other party a reasonable opportunity to review and comment upon the proposed text and the timing of such disclosure.

 

12.9 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York (without giving effect to any conflicts of law principles that require the application of the law of a different state). The United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods is hereby expressly excluded.

 

12.10 Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement, together with the Quality Agreement, constitutes the entire agreement of the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements, written or oral, between CyDex (and/or any of its Affiliates) and Hospira (and/or any of its Affiliates) relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof; provided, that any confidentiality/nonuse provisions of any prior agreement are not superseded and will remain in effect solely with respect to information provided under the terms of such prior agreement that is not subsequently provided to a Party under the terms of this Agreement. If the Quality Agreement contains terms or conditions inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement, the terms of the Quality Agreement will control and prevail solely with respect to quality issues, and the terms of this Agreement shall control and prevail for all other matters. This Agreement cannot be amended except by way of an express writing signed by both parties.

 

12.11 Binding Effect. This Agreement shall be binding upon, and the rights and obligations hereof shall apply to, CyDex and Hospira and any successor(s) and permitted assigns. The name of a party appearing herein shall be deemed to include the names of such party’s successors and permitted assigns to the extent necessary to carry out the intent of this Agreement.

 

12.12 Waiver. The rights of either party under this Agreement may be exercised from time to time, singularly or in combination, and the exercise of one or more such rights shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any one or more of the others. No waiver of any breach of a term, provision or condition of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been made by either party unless such waiver is addressed in writing and signed by an authorized representative of that party. The failure of either party to insist upon the strict performance of any of the terms, provisions or conditions of this Agreement, or to exercise any option contained in this Agreement, shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment for the future of any such term, provision, condition or option or the waiver or relinquishment of any other term, provision, condition or option.

 

12.13 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is determined by a final and binding court or arbitration judgment to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable to any extent, such provision shall not be not affected or impaired up to the limits of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability; the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected or impaired in any way; and the parties agree to negotiate in good faith to replace such invalid, illegal and unenforceable provision (or portion of provision) with a valid, legal and enforceable provision that achieves, to the greatest lawful extent under this Agreement, the economic, business and other purposes of such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision (or portion of provision).

 

12.14 Assignment. Neither party may assign its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party; provided, however, that either party may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without such consent, to an Affiliate of such party or to any Third Party successor by merger or acquisition or by divestiture or spin-off of substantially all of the business to which this Agreement relates, upon written notice to the other party of any such assignment and, in the case of an assignment to an Affiliate, such party hereby guarantees the performance of any such Affiliate, and, in the case of a Third Party assignment, such Third Party shall assume the obligations of the assigning party under this Agreement. No assignment shall relieve any party of responsibility for the performance of any obligation, which such party may have or incur hereunder.

 

12.15 Third Party Beneficiaries. The terms and provisions of this Agreement are intended solely for the benefit of each party hereto and their respective Affiliates, related Indemnified Parties (as set forth in Section 9), successors or permitted assigns and it is not the intention of the parties to confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person, including without limitation Sublicensees.

 

12.17 Headings. The descriptive headings of this Agreement are for convenience only, and shall be of no force or effect in construing or interpreting any of the provisions of this Agreement.

 

12.18 Interpretation. The language used in this Agreement is the language chosen by the parties to express their mutual intent, and no provision of this Agreement will be interpreted for or against any party because that party or its attorney drafted the provision.

 

12.19 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall constitute an original document, but both of which shall constitute one and the same instrument.
