A. Nephros and Medica are parties to that certain License and Supply Agreement entered into as of April 23, 2012, as amended as of April 10, 2013 and May 4, 2015, (collectively, the “Agreement”), whereby the Parties agreed to an exclusive supply arrangement for the Medica Products and Nephros Products.

2. Territory. Section 1.39 of the Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety, as follows:


“1.39 ‘Territory’ means North America, Central America, Columbia, Venezuela, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Ireland, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.”


3. Distributor Sales Territory. A new Section 2.6 shall be added to the Agreement, as follows:


“2.6 Nephros Distributors. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, multinational distributors of Nephros have the right to sell Nephros Products outside of the Territory, excluding Italy. As available, Nephros will from time to time provide Medica with a list of multinational distributors that distribute Nephros Products outside of the Territory.”




4. Forecasting. Section 5.5.1 of the Agreement is hereby amended and restated in its entirety, as follows:


“5.5.1 In order to assist Medica in planning production, Nephros shall deliver to Medica a monthly rolling forecast of the quantities of the Products required by Nephros (and/or its Affiliates or their respective sublicensees and distributors) for the following four months. The quantities of Product set forth in the first two month contained in any such forecast shall be firm and binding on Nephros. The forecast quantities of Products set forth in the remaining months of the forecast period shall be non-binding good faith estimates of Nephros’ Product requirements for such months and shall be used by Medica for production planning. Except as provided in this Section 5.5.1., forecasts provided by Nephros or its Affiliates or their respective sublicenses and distributors shall be for the sole purpose of assisting Medica in its planning. Medica shall, no later than ten (10) days after receipt of each such forecast notify Nephros in writing of any objections or prospective problems in meeting Nephros’ forecasted requirements.”


5. Minimum Sales Targets. Section 3.2 of the Agreement is hereby amended to provide that the total minimum amount of purchases by Nephros from Medica shall be as follows:

4. No Further Amendment. Except as expressly modified hereby, the Agreement remains in full force and effect. In the event that any provision of this Amendment, or any provision of the Agreement as amended hereby, is or becomes legally ineffective, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions hereof or thereof, and in lieu of the invalid provisions, the Parties shall agree upon a valid provision that approaches best the commercial purposes of the intended provision.
