3.4 Target Annual Purchase Volume

 

3.4年目标采购量

  

Under this Agreement, and subject to the Manufacturer meeting EMV’s requirements for quality, price, configuration and lead-time, and being granted the manufacturing license hereunder, the parties will, on an annual basis, use their reasonable commercial efforts to negotiate in good faith and agree upon a quantity of vehicles to be produced and delivered for the subsequent 12 month period (the “Annual Term”) prior to March 31 of each year to be known as the “Target Annual Purchase Volume” herein.

 

根据本协议,在制造商满足 EMV 对质量、价格、配置和交货时间的要求并获得本协议项下的制造许可的前提下,双方将每年3月31日前利用其合理的商业努力进行善意谈判 并同意在随后的 12 个月期间(“年度期限”)生产和交付的车辆数量,称为“目标年度购买量”。

 

In this respect it is hereby acknowledged and agreed that the Target Annual Purchase Volumes for each of the initial 30 months during the Term (as herein defined) of this Agreement – that being from each of June 1, 2021 to May 31, 2022, from June 1, 2022 to May 31, 2023 and from June 1, 2023 to May 31, 2024 (collectively, the “First Annual Terms”) - have already been agreed to and are set forth in a separate letter addendum to this Agreement which will be executed contemporaneously herewith. In this respect it is hereby also acknowledged and agreed that the Target Annual Purchase Volumes for each period shall be a combination of knock-down kits and/or complete vehicles (the ratio of knock-down kits to complete vehicles to be determined by both parties ).

 

在这方面,特此承认并同意,在本协议期限(如本文定义)期间的最初 30 个月中的每一个月的目标年度采购量 - 即从 2021 年 6 月 1 日到 2022 年 5 月 31 日,从 2022 年 6 月 1 日至 2023 年 5 月 31 日和 2023 年 6 月 1 日至 2024 年 5 月 31 日(统称为“第一年度条款”) - 已被同意并在本协议附加的单独信函中规定并与此同时执行。在这方面,特此也承认并同意,每个时期的目标年度采购量应为散件和/或整车的组合(散件与整车的比例由双方决定)。

 

Should EMV fail to be in a position to order the entire Target Annual Purchase Volume previously agreed to for an Annual Term; including for the First Annual Terms (the “Volume Shortfall”), EMV will, upon its prior receipt and approval of an accounting summary prepared by the Manufacturer respecting such Volume Shortfall, offset payment to the Manufacturer to cover any such under-utilized labor and operating expenses incurred by the Manufacture and related to the unfavorable Volume Shortfall for that Annual Term (the “Offset Payment”); with such Offset Payment being equal to by RMB ¥1,500,000 per month (i.e., RMB ¥18,000,000 per year) to cover any such under-utilized labor and operating expenses incurred by the Manufacture related to the Volume Shortfall. The amount of the Offset Payment shall be confirmed by both parties by the end of each Annual Term and settled and paid within 30 days of the end of each Annual Term. The Volume Shortfall for each Annual Term shall be determined as a percentage of the previously agreed to Target Annual Purchase Volume that has not been fulfilled by the end of its Annual Term. For example, if there is a Volume Shortfall of 10% of the total Target Annual Purchase Volume then the amount to cover the resulting under-utilization Offset Payment shall be RMB¥1,800,000”.

 

如果 EMV 无法采购之前商定的全年目标年度采购量,包括第一年度条款(“数量不足”),EMV 将根据其事先收到并批准的、制造商针对此类数量不足准备的会计报表,补偿制造商因数量不足带来的未充分利用的人力和运营费用(“补偿付款”);此补偿付款为每月人民币 1,500,000 元(即每年人民币 18,000,000 元),以支付制造商因数量不足而产生的任何此类未充分利用的人力和运营费用。 补偿付款的金额应在每个年度期限结束时由双方确认,并在每个年度期限结束后的 30 天内结算和支付。每个年度期限的数量不足应确定为之前商定的年度采购量目标在年度期限结束时尚未完成部分的百分比。例如,如果存在10%的总目标年度采购量未完成,则支付的补偿付款的金额应为人民币 1,800,000 元。
