The [*   *   *] in any such transaction will include the [*   *   *].

In the event of any transaction involving the [*   *   *], to the extent the P&G Partners believe in good faith that the [*   *   *] in such transaction [*   *   *] represents, the Parties will negotiate in good faith to agree upon the appropriate allocation and, if the Parties are unable to so agree within [*   *   *] through good faith negotiation, then the [*   *   *] will determine such allocation;

          (iii) with respect to each of the Class A Interest and the Class C Interest, individually, “Fair Market Value” will be deemed to be an amount equal to [*   *   *] of the aggregate Fair Market Value of the [*   *   *];

Once the [*   *   *] has determined the Fair Market Values of the Ordinary JV Interests held by the Clorox Partners and the Glad Local Businesses, it will then determine the “Fair Market Values” of [*   *   *]. For example, assuming the P&G Option has been exercised, if a third party buyer acquires [*   *   *]. If, in the example provided in the immediately preceding sentence, there were [*   *   *] the Ordinary JV Interests would have equaled [*   *   *] (i.e. the value of all of the Ordinary JV Interests would equal [*   *   *] the Glad Local Businesses would have equaled $[*   *   *]. The [*   *   *]. This determination in connection with a Clorox Change of Control will be made by the [*   *   *] based on the [*   *   *], and for avoidance of doubt it is expected in determining such relative values that [*   *   *] as the case may be).

The JV Interests and Capital Account balance of each individual Clorox Party as of the Closing will be determined by Clorox in accordance with the Contribution Allocation Statement, but in no event will the aggregate JV Interests and Capital Accounts balances of the Clorox Parties as of the Closing exceed those provided in the first sentence of this Section 2.5(a).

Account balance as will be mutually agreed by the Parties prior to Closing. All JV Interests and Capital Account balances of the P&G Parties as of the Closing will be deemed to be owned solely and exclusively by P&G Sub. P&G is a party to this Agreement for purposes of guaranteeing the performance of all obligations of P&G Sub and to perform directly certain obligations pursuant to this Agreement.

        Section 2.6   Additional Capital Calls and Parent Loans.

        (a) All additional capital contributions that will be attributed to the Joint Venture will be made in accordance with this Section 2.6. In the event additional funds are required to finance specific capital, acquisition or extraordinary expenditures of the Glad Business, such funds may be provided by the JV Partners as loans attributed to the Joint Venture (“Parent Loans”) or as additional contributions of capital, in each case as provided in this Section 2.6. The Board may, from time to time, issue Capital Calls, requesting the JV Partners to make additional contributions of capital in proportion to their respective Ordinary JV Interests in order to finance expenditures of the Glad Business if based on the then-current financial forecasts of the Joint Venture (i) such expenditures cannot be funded entirely out of Distributable Cash Flow for such Fiscal Quarter and (ii) if Parent Loans are used to finance such expenditures, the Available Cash Flow during the next [*   *   *] will be insufficient to repay in full all Parent Loans that would be outstanding immediately after such new Parent Loans are incurred. Each JV Partner agrees that Capital Calls issued to any JV Partner will be paid by the JV Partner at its election. The remedy for non-payment of any Capital Calls will be limited to the remedy set forth in this Section 2.6 and such non-payment will not be a breach of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 2.6(a). Except as otherwise required by law, no JV Partner will be required to make any additional contributions to the capital attributed to the Joint Venture. All capital contributions to be attributed to the Joint Venture will be paid by the JV Partners to the account of the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox to receive such capital contributions.

        (b) In the event that additional funds are required to finance specific capital, acquisition or extraordinary expenditures of the Glad Business, and the then-current financial forecasts of the Joint Venture indicate that (i) such expenditures can be funded entirely out of Distributable Cash Flow for that Fiscal Quarter or (ii) if Parent Loans are used to finance such expenditures, the Available Cash Flow during the next [*   *   *] will be sufficient to repay in full all Parent Loans that would be outstanding immediately after such new Parent Loans are incurred, the Clorox Partners will provide such additional funds as a Parent Loan having a term of [*   *   *]. In the event that Available Cash Flow for any Fiscal Quarter as set forth in the quarterly financial statements of the Joint Venture for such Fiscal Quarter to be delivered pursuant to Section 9.1(c) (the “Quarterly Financials”) is a negative number (such number, the “Negative Cash Flow”) (x) less than $[*   *   *] and the aggregate outstanding Parent Loans by the Clorox Partners would not exceed $[*   *   *] if the amount of such Negative Cash Flow were treated as a Parent Loan or (y) if Parent Loans are used to fund the Negative Cash Flow, the Available Cash Flow during the next [*   *   *] will be sufficient to repay in full all Parent Loans that would be outstanding immediately after such new Parent Loans are incurred, then the amount of the Negative Cash Flow will be treated as a Parent Loan by the Clorox Partners, which Parent Loan will be deemed to have been made as of the last day of the Fiscal Quarter to which the Negative Cash Flow relates.

21

        (c) In the event that there is Negative Cash Flow for any Fiscal Quarter that will not be treated as a Parent Loan in accordance with Section 2.6(b), then within three (3) Business Days of delivery of the Quarterly Financials pursuant to Section 9.1(c), the Board will issue a Capital Call to P&G Sub in an amount (the “P&G True-Up”) equal to: (i) the aggregate amount of the Ordinary JV Interests held by the P&G Partners [*   *   *] (ii) the Negative Cash Flow. In the event the P&G Partners pay such Capital Call, (A) the proceeds thereof will be paid to the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox, (B) the P&G Partners will be deemed to have made a capital contribution to the Joint Venture in the amount of the P&G True-Up, (C) each of the Clorox Partners will be deemed to have made a capital contribution to the Joint Venture in the amount of (x) the amount of the Ordinary JV Interest held by such Clorox Partner [*   *   *] (y) the Negative Cash Flow and (D) the respective Ordinary JV Interests of the Parties will not be adjusted with respect to such capital contributions or such Capital Call paid by P&G Sub or deemed paid by the Clorox Partners. In the event the P&G Partners decline to pay such Capital Call, the Clorox Partners will be deemed to have advanced the amount of the Negative Cash Flow, which may be treated as a loan or a contribution by the Clorox Partners at their election as provided in Section 2.6(e) below.

        (d) All Parent Loans will bear interest calculated on the outstanding principal amount thereof for each day from the date such Parent Loan is made until it is paid in full at [*   *   *] plus [*   *   *] percent ([*   *   *]%) per annum payable on a quarterly basis, and payments with respect to any Parent Loans will be credited first to accrued interest. Subject to the provisions of Section 3.4(b)(iv), each Parent Loan will have a maturity date of the last day of the Term.

        (e) Subject to the provisions of Section 2.6(c) hereof, in the event of the failure of any P&G Partner to make full and timely payment of any additional capital contribution required by any Capital Call pursuant to this Section 2.6, the Clorox Partners will be deemed to have advanced to the Joint Venture the entire unpaid amount. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.6(c) hereof, such advance as well as any other amounts that would have been deemed paid by the Clorox Partner on its own behalf with respect to such Capital Call if the P&G Partners had paid such Capital Call in full (together with such advance, the “Additional Amount”) will, at the election of the advancing Clorox Partner, be treated in either of the following manners:

        (i) the Additional Amount may be treated as a Parent Loan; or

        (ii) the Additional Amount may be treated as a contribution by the Clorox Partner paying such Additional Amount attributed to the Joint Venture of all or any portion of such unpaid Capital Call.

        (f) Effective upon the making of an additional capital contribution by a Clorox Partner pursuant to Section 2.6(e)(ii) (an “Additional Contribution”), the Ordinary JV Interest of each JV Partner will be recalculated as that percentage equal to a fraction:

        (i) [*   *   *] of which is equal to the sum of (A) (x) the Ordinary JV Interest of such JV Partner prior to the Additional Contribution [*   *   *] by (y) the aggregate

22

THE PORTIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT IDENTIFIED BY THE SYMBOL “[* * *]” HAVE BEEN OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUEST.


Fair Market Value of all Ordinary JV Interests prior to the Additional Contribution plus (B) the amount, if any, of the Additional Contribution made by such JV Partner, and

        (ii) [*   *   *] of which is equal to the sum of (A) the aggregate Fair Market Value of all Ordinary JV Interests prior to the Additional Contribution [*   *   *] (B) the aggregate amount of all Additional Contributions by all the JV Partners made at the same time as such Additional Contribution.

For purposes of this Section 2.6(f), prior to the three-year anniversary of the Closing Date, the Fair Market Value of all the Ordinary JV Interests will be no less than $[*   *   *] plus the aggregate amount of Additional Contributions made or deemed made prior to the date as of which such Fair Market Value is being determined.

By way of illustration, in the event the Ordinary JV Interests held by the JV Partners remain unchanged from the Closing Date and the P&G Option has not been exercised, and an Additional Contribution is made by a Clorox Partner in the amount of $[*   *   *] and the Fair Market Value for all Ordinary JV Interests prior to such Additional Contribution is equal to $[*   *   *] the Ordinary JV Interests held by the P&G Partners would be an aggregate of [*   *   *]% and the Ordinary JV Interests held by the Clorox Partners would be an aggregate of [*   *   *]%, calculated as follows:

        [*   *   *]% = [*   *   *]

        [*   *   *]% = [*   *   *]

        Section 2.7   P&G Option.

        (a) During the period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on January 1, 2008 (the “Option Exercise Period”), the P&G Partners will have the option (the “P&G Option”) to acquire from the Clorox Partners all (but not less than all) of (x) a portion of the Clorox Partners’ Ordinary JV Interests equal to ten percent (10%) of the total Ordinary JV Interests as of the date of the closing of the exercise of the P&G Option and (y) the Class A Interest. The [*   *   *] price to be paid by P&G Sub to the Clorox Partners (the “Option Price”) will be determined as follows:

        (i) $[*   *   *] plus the Adjustment Amount, if any, in the event the P&G Option is exercised on or before January 1, 2004;

        (ii) $133 million plus the Adjustment Amount, if any, if the P&G Option is exercised after January 1, 2004 and on or before January 1, 2005;

        (iii) $[*   *   *] plus the Adjustment Amount, if any, if the P&G Option is exercised after January 1, 2005 and on or before January 1, 2006;

        (iv) $[*   *   *] plus the Adjustment Amount, if any, if the P&G Option is exercised after January 1, 2006 and on or before January 1, 2007; and

23

        (v) $[*   *   *] plus the Adjustment Amount, if any, if the P&G Option is exercised after January 1, 2007 and on or before January 1, 2008.

        (b) If the P&G Partners wish to exercise the P&G Option, P&G will provide ten (10) Business Days prior written notice to Clorox. The closing with respect to any exercise of the P&G Option will take place on the tenth Business Day after exercise by the P&G Partners of the P&G Option, provided that if all orders, consents and approvals of Governmental Authorities legally required for the closing of such sale will not have been obtained or will not be in effect, or if any waiting period under the HSR Act will not have expired or been terminated, such closing will be delayed until the tenth Business Day after such orders, consents and approvals will be obtained and in effect and such waiting period, if any, will have expired or been terminated. Payment of the Option Price will be by immediately available funds to the accounts designated by Clorox.

        Section 2.8   Rights with Respect to Capital.

        (a) No JV Partner will have the right to withdraw, or receive any return of, its Capital Contribution, and no Capital Contribution may be returned in the form of property other than cash except as specifically provided herein.

        (b) Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, no Capital Contribution of any JV Partner will bear any interest or otherwise entitle the contributing JV Partner to any compensation for use of the contributed capital.

        Section 2.9   Capital Accounts.

        (a) There will be established for each JV Partner on the books of the Joint Venture a capital account (“Capital Account”) that will be maintained in accordance with this Section 2.9.

        (b) In the event a JV Partner transfers a JV Interest in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the transferee will succeed to the Capital Account of the transferor to the extent it relates to the transferred JV Interest.

        (c) The Capital Account of each JV Partner will be increased by:

        (i) such JV Partner’s cash contributions attributed to and deemed contributed to the Joint Venture (including deemed cash contributions equal to the amount of organizational expenses incurred by such JV Partner on behalf of the Joint Venture);

        (ii) the Carrying Value of property attributed to and deemed contributed by such JV Partner (net of Liabilities secured by such contributed property that the Joint Venture is considered to have attributed to it or such property is subject to under Code Section 752);

        (iii) all items of Net Profits allocated to such JV Partner pursuant to Article III or other provisions of this Agreement, and

        (iv) all items of income and gain specially allocated to such JV Partner pursuant to Section 3.2.

        (d) The Capital Account of each JV Partner will be decreased by:

        (i) the amount of cash distributed to such JV Partner as a distribution with respect to the Joint Venture;

        (ii) the Carrying Value of all actual and deemed distributions of Property made to such JV Partner as a distribution with respect to the Joint Venture pursuant to this Agreement (net of Liabilities secured by such distributed Property that the JV Partner is considered to assume or take subject to under Code Section 752);

        (iii) all items of Net Loss allocated to such JV Partner pursuant to Article III or other provisions of this Agreement; and

        (iv) all items of deduction, expense or loss specially allocated to such JV Partners pursuant to Section 3.2.

        (e) The provisions of this Agreement relating to the maintenance of Capital Accounts are intended to comply with Regulations Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(iv), and will be interpreted and applied in a manner consistent with such Regulations Section. To the extent such provisions are inconsistent with such Regulations Section or are incomplete with respect thereto, Capital Accounts will be maintained and adjustments thereto will be made in accordance with such Regulations Section; provided, however, that no such adjustment will have any effect on the amount distributable hereunder to any JV Partner.

ARTICLE III

ALLOCATIONS AND DISTRIBUTIONS

        Section 3.1   Allocation of Net Profits and Losses.

        (a) Except as otherwise provided in this Article III, Net Profits and Net Loss of the Joint Venture in each Fiscal Year will be allocated among the JV Partners in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests.

        (b) Notwithstanding Section 3.1(a) above, Net Profits with respect to each of the first eight Fiscal Quarters of the Joint Venture will be allocated among the JV Partners as follows:

        (i) with respect to the first four Fiscal Quarters of the Joint Venture, Net Profits will be allocated one hundred percent (100%) to the Clorox Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests); provided that, if P&G Sub exercises the P&G Option on or prior to the first day of any such Fiscal Quarter, Net Profits for such Fiscal Quarter will be allocated (subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 2.6(f)) ninety percent (90%) to the Clorox Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective JV Interests) and ten percent (10%) to the P&G Partners (pro rata in

accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests);

        (ii) with respect to the fifth through eighth Fiscal Quarters of the Joint Venture, Net Profits will be allocated (subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 2.6(f)) ninety-five percent (95%) to the Clorox Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests) and five percent (5%) to the P&G Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests); provided that, if P&G Sub exercises the P&G Option on or prior to the first day of any such Fiscal Quarter, Net Profits for such Fiscal Quarter will be allocated (subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 2.6(f)) eighty-five percent (85%) to the Clorox Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests) and fifteen percent (15%) to the P&G Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests); and

        (iii) notwithstanding the provisions of Section 3.1(b)(i) and (ii) above, Net Profits with respect to any sale, transfer or other disposition of any business or assets of the Glad Business outside the ordinary course of the Glad Business during the first eight Fiscal Quarters will be allocated among the JV Partners pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests.

        Section 3.2   Special Allocations.

        For purposes of the following provisions of this Section 3.2, the Clorox Partners will be regarded as a single JV Partner with a single Capital Account. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary:

        (a) If a JV Partner would at any time receive, but for this Section 3.2(a), an allocation of deduction, loss, or expenditure that would cause or increase a deficit balance in such JV Partner’s Capital Account in excess of any amount of such deficit balance that the JV Partner is obligated to restore or deemed obligated to restore (as determined in accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(c)), then the portion of such allocation that would cause or increase such deficit Capital Account balance will be specially allocated to the other JV Partners, if any, with positive Capital Account balances in proportion to such balances. The loss limitation under this Section 3.2(a) is intended to comply with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d), including the reductions described in subparagraphs (4), (5) and (6) therein.

        (b) If in any Fiscal Year a JV Partner receives an adjustment, allocation or distribution described in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d)(4), (5) or (6), items of Joint Venture income and gain will be specially allocated to each such JV Partner in an amount and manner sufficient to eliminate, to the extent required by the Treasury Regulations, the Capital Account deficit of such JV Partner as quickly as possible provided that an allocation pursuant to this Section 3.2(b) will be made only if and to the extent that such JV Partner would have a Capital Account deficit after all other allocations provided for in this Article III have been tentatively made as if this Section 3.2(b) were not in the Agreement. This Section 3.2(b) is intended to qualify and be construed as a “qualified income offset” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b)(2)(ii)(d) and will be interpreted consistently therewith.

26

        (c) If there is a net decrease in minimum gain attributed to the Joint Venture or JV Partner nonrecourse debt minimum gain (determined in accordance with the principles of Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(d) and 1.704-2(i)) during any Joint Venture taxable year, the JV Partners will be allocated items of income and gain attributed to the Joint Venture for such year (and, if necessary, subsequent years) in an amount equal to their respective shares of such net decrease during such year, determined pursuant to Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(g) and 1.704-2(i)(5). The items to be so allocated will be determined in accordance with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-2(f). This Section 3.2(c) is intended to comply with the minimum gain chargeback requirements in such Treasury Regulations and will be interpreted consistently therewith, including that no chargeback will be required to the extent of the exceptions provided in Treasury Regulation Sections 1.704-2(f) and 1.704-2(i)(4).

        (d) The allocation provisions set forth in this Article III and the other provisions of this Agreement relating to the maintenance of Capital Accounts are intended to comply with Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-1(b) and will be interpreted and applied in a manner consistent with such Regulations; provided however that such provisions will not affect the economic rights of any JV Partner, including rights to distributions with respect to the Joint Venture.

        (e) Any special allocations of items of income, gain, loss or deductions pursuant to Sections 3.2(a), (b) and (c) will be taken into account in computing subsequent allocations pursuant to Section 3.1 and this Section 3.2, so that the net amount of any items so allocated will, to the extent possible, be equal to the net amount that would have been allocated to each such JV Partner pursuant to the provisions of this Article III if such special allocations had not occurred.

        (f) In the event that any fees, interest, or other amounts paid to any JV Partner or any Affiliate thereof pursuant to this Agreement or any other agreement attributed to the Joint Venture with any JV Partner or Affiliate thereof providing for the payment of such amount, and deducted by the Joint Venture in reliance on Section 707(a) and/or 707(c) of the Code, are disallowed as deductions to the Joint Venture on its federal income tax return and are treated as Joint Venture distributions, then:

        (i) the Net Profits or Net Loss, as the case may be, for the Fiscal Year in which such fees, interest, or other amounts were paid will be increased or decreased, as the case may be, by the amount of such fees, interest, or other amounts that are treated as Joint Venture distributions; and

        (ii) there will be allocated to the JV Partner to which (or to whose Affiliate) such fees, interest, or other amounts were paid, prior to the allocations pursuant to Section 3.1, an amount of gross income for the Fiscal Year equal to the amount of such fees, interest, or other amounts that are treated as Joint Venture distributions.

         (g) Prior to the allocation of Net Profits and Net Losses pursuant to Section 3.1, the following allocations shall be made for each Fiscal Year:

         (i) The holder of the Class A Interest will be specially allocated royalty

Royalty income allocated to the Class A Interest hereunder will be allocated among the various sources of such royalty income in the same manner as withholding taxes are calculated under the definition of “Deemed Withholding Taxes”. The holder of the Class A Interest will also be specially allocated income for such Fiscal Year in an [*   *   *] of the IP Allocation Amounts with respect to IP Acquisitions for such Fiscal Year and will be specially allocated all income attributable to Glad License Termination Amounts paid for such Fiscal Year;

         (ii) After the allocations pursuant to Section 3.2(g)(i) are made, the holder of the Class B Interest will be specially allocated royalty income attributable to royalty payments made under the Glad License Agreements for such Fiscal Year in an amount [*   *   *] royalty payments received under the Glad License Agreements for such Fiscal Year, [*   *   *] the amount of royalty income allocated to the Class A Interest under Section 3.2(g)(i) for such Fiscal Year. The holder of the Class B Interest will also be specially allocated income for such Fiscal Year [*   *   *] IP Acquisition Prices with respect to IP Acquisitions, if any, for such Fiscal Year in excess of the aggregate IP Allocation Amounts included in the calculation of the Class A Special Amount and the Class C Special Amount for each Fiscal Quarter in such Fiscal Year;

         (iii) The holder of the Class C Interest will be specially allocated royalty income attributable to royalty payments made under the JV Sublicense Agreements in such Fiscal Year in an amount of royalty payments [*   *   *] royalty payments received under the JV Sublicense Agreements for such Fiscal Year. The holder of the Class C Interest will also be specially allocated income for such Fiscal Year in an amount [*   *   *] of the IP Allocation Amounts with respect to IP Acquisitions for such Fiscal Year and will be specially allocated [*   *   *] attributable to JV Sublicense Termination Amounts paid for such Fiscal Year;

         (iv) The Clorox Partners will be specially allocated all deductions arising from the payment of guaranteed payments pursuant to Section 3.5(a) and Section 3.5(b) hereof in such Fiscal Year and shall be specially allocated [*   *   *] attributable to Prohibited License Amounts received on behalf of the Joint Venture in such Fiscal Year; and

         (v) Each JV Partner will be specially allocated all deductions arising from the amortization of organizational expenses (within the meaning of Section 709(b) of the Code) incurred by such JV Partner on behalf of the Joint Venture.

         Section 3.3   Section 704(c) Allocation.

         (a) For income tax purposes only, each item of income, gain, loss, and deduction with respect to any Property, the Carrying Value of which differs from its adjusted tax basis for federal income tax purposes, will be allocated in accordance with the principles of

28

THE PORTIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT IDENTIFIED BY THE SYMBOL “[* * *]” HAVE BEEN OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUEST.


Section 704(c) of the Code so as to take into account the variation between the adjusted tax basis of such Property and its Carrying Value. For purposes of applying the principles of Section 704(c) of the Code, the Joint Venture will use the traditional method described in Treasury Regulation Section 1.704-3(b) or such other methods as the JV Partners unanimously agree.

         (b) Subject to the provisions of Section 3.3(a), items of income, gain, loss, deduction and credit to be allocated for income tax purposes will be allocated for each Fiscal Year among the JV Partners in the same manner and on the same basis as Net Profits and Net Loss are allocated, taking into account special allocations made pursuant to Section 3.2.

         Section 3.4   Distributions of Available Cash Flow.

         (a) After making distributions of Distributable Cash Flow pursuant to Section 3.4(c) for any Fiscal Quarter, all remaining Distributable Cash Flow attributed to the Joint Venture for such Fiscal Quarter will be distributed by the Clorox Partners in accordance with this Section 3.4(a). If Available Cash Flow as shown in the Quarterly Financials for any Fiscal Quarter results in the Distributable Cash Flow for that Fiscal Quarter being a positive number, a distribution with respect to such Fiscal Quarter will be made by the Clorox Partners to the P&G Partners within three (3) Business Days after delivery of such Quarterly Financials and each Clorox Partner will be deemed to have received a distribution on that same date. All distributions made by the Clorox Partners pursuant to this Section 3.4 will be in [*   *   *] to the account designated by the P&G Partners to Clorox in writing. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 3.4 or Article VI, all distributions of Distributable Cash Flow from any Fiscal Quarter will be made to the JV Partners pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests as of the last day of such Fiscal Quarter so that the amount distributed to the P&G Partners will equal its Ordinary JV Interest as of such day multiplied by the aggregate amount of Distributable Cash Flow.

         (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 3.4(a), after making distributions of Distributable Cash Flow pursuant to Section 3.4(c),

         (i) with respect to the first four Fiscal Quarters of the Joint Venture, the remaining Distributable Cash Flow will be distributed one hundred percent (100%) to the Clorox Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests); provided that if the P&G Partners exercise the P&G Option on or prior to the first day of any such Fiscal Quarter, such Distributable Cash Flow for such Fiscal Quarter will be distributed (subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 2.6(f)) ninety percent (90%) to the Clorox Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests) and ten percent (10%) to the P&G Partners;

         (ii) with respect to the fifth through eighth Fiscal Quarters of the Joint Venture, the remaining Distributable Cash Flow will be distributed (subject to adjustment pursuant to Section 2.6(f)) ninety-five percent (95%) to the Clorox Partners (pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests) and five percent (5%) to the P&G Partners; provided that if the P&G Partners exercises the P&G Option on or prior to the first day of any such Fiscal Quarter, such Distributable Cash Flow for such Fiscal Quarter

         (iii) notwithstanding the provisions of Section 3.4(b)(i) and (ii) above, distributions of Distributable Cash Flow consisting of the net cash proceeds of any sale, transfer or other disposition of any business or assets of the Glad Business outside the ordinary course of the Glad Business during the first eight Fiscal Quarters will be made to the JV Partners pro rata in accordance with their respective Ordinary JV Interests as of the last day of such Fiscal Quarter.

         (c) Prior to any distributions of Distributable Cash Flow under Sections 3.4(a) or 3.4(b), Distributable Cash Flow for any Fiscal Quarter will be distributed in accordance with this Section 3.4(c) in the following order of priority:

         (i) In the event of one or more International Acquisitions that have related IP Acquisitions in a Fiscal Quarter, the holder of the Class C Interest will be entitled to a distribution with respect to such Fiscal Quarter of Distributable Cash Flow in an amount equal to the sum of the aggregate IP Allocation Amounts with respect to all such International Acquisitions in such Fiscal Year (the “Class C Special Amount”);

         (ii) In the event of one or more International Acquisitions that have related IP Acquisitions in a Fiscal Quarter, the holder of the Class A Interest will also be entitled to a distribution with respect to such Fiscal Quarter of Distributable Cash Flow equal to the sum of the aggregate IP Allocation Amounts with respect to all such International Acquisitions in such Fiscal Quarter (the “Class A Special Amount”);

         (iii) The holder of the Class B Interest will be entitled to a distribution with respect to each Fiscal Quarter of Distributable Cash Flow in an amount equal to the aggregate royalty payments received under the Glad License Agreements (net of withholding taxes imposed on such royalty payments) for such Fiscal Quarter, minus the amount distributable to the holder of the Class A Interest under Section 3.5(b)(i) for such Fiscal Quarter;

         (iv) The holder of the Class B Interest will be entitled to a special distribution with respect to each Fiscal Quarter of Distributable Cash Flow equal to the aggregate IP Acquisition Prices, if any, for such Fiscal Quarter, less the sum of the Class A Special Amount and the Class C Special Amount for such Fiscal Quarter; and

         (v) In the event there is insufficient Distributable Cash Flow in any Fiscal Quarter to pay the amounts otherwise distributable under this Section 3.4(c) (a “Distribution Shortfall”), there shall be a priority distribution of Distributable Cash Flow in the next succeeding Fiscal Quarter in the amount of such Distribution Shortfall (and all prior Distribution Shortfalls to the extent a distribution has not been made with respect to any such Distribution Shortfall under this Section 3.4(c)(v)) in the order of priority set forth in this Section 3.4(c) to the Parties who were the holders of the Class A Interest,

Class B Interest and Class C Interest at the time of such Distribution Shortfall. Notwithstanding anything set forth in this Section 3.4 to the contrary, distributions under this Section 3.4(c)(v) shall be made before any distributions are made under Sections 3.4(c)(i) through (iv), inclusive, for a Fiscal Quarter.

Any distributions of Distributable Cash Flow pursuant to this Section 3.4(c) will reduce the amount of Distributable Cash Flow available for distribution pursuant to Section 3.4(a) and 3.4(b) hereof.

         (d) To the extent there are any outstanding Parent Loans, and there is Available Cash Flow in any Fiscal Quarter, then all Available Cash Flow will be immediately applied towards outstanding Parent Loans and accrued and unpaid interest thereon until all Parent Loans and accrued interest thereon will have been repaid in full. As long as any Parent Loans remain outstanding, no distributions will be made pursuant to this Section 3.4 in respect of the JV Interests.

         (e) The Parties acknowledge that it is expected that the Glad Global Business will participate in Clorox’s centralized cash management system and that any cash generated by the Glad Global Business may be used by Clorox in its discretion, subject to the other provisions of this Agreement and the Related Agreements.

         Section 3.5   Distributions of IP Related Amounts.

        The holders of the Class C Interest and the Class A Interest shall be entitled to distributions of the following amounts received under the JV Sublicense Agreements and the Glad License Agreements, which amounts shall be distributed or paid, as the case may be, by the Clorox Partners on behalf of the Joint Venture in the order and priority set forth below for any Fiscal Quarter:

         (a) The holder of the Class C Interest will be entitled to distributions of (i) all royalties paid under the JV Sublicense Agreements for such Fiscal Quarter (net of withholding taxes imposed on such royalty payments), and (ii) all JV Sublicense Termination Amounts paid under the JV Sublicense Agreements for such Fiscal Quarter (net of withholding taxes imposed on such JV Sublicense Termination Amounts). In the event the foregoing amounts payable under any JV Sublicense Agreement are not permitted to be paid as a result of legal restrictions in a local jurisdiction of an International Licensee, the holder of the Class C Interest shall be entitled to receive, and the Clorox Partners on behalf of the Joint Venture shall cause to be paid, an amount equal to the shortfall (reduced by any withholding taxes that would have been imposed had the full amounts due actually been paid by the International Licensee). The amount of such payment shall be treated as a guaranteed payment under Section 707(c) of the Code. For the avoidance of doubt, no P&G Partner shall be required to contribute or otherwise fund, directly or indirectly, such guaranteed payments. If the International Licensee is later permitted by the local jurisdiction to make royalty payments that were previously prohibited, the amount of such payments received shall be distributed to the Clorox Partners.

         (b) The holder of the Class A Interest will be entitled to distributions of (i) royalties

paid under the Glad License Agreements for such Fiscal Quarter in an amount equal to the Class A Royalty Amount (or, in the event the aggregate royalty payments paid under the Glad License Agreements for such Fiscal Quarter (net of withholding taxes imposed on such royalty payments) are less than the Class A Royalty Amount, such lesser amount of royalty payments) and (ii) all Glad License Termination Amounts paid under the Glad License Agreements for such Fiscal Quarter (net of withholding taxes imposed on such amounts). In the event the P&G Option has been exercised, to the extent (x) the aggregate royalty payments under the Glad License Agreements for a Fiscal Quarter are less than the Class A Royalty Amount for such Fiscal Quarter or (y) Glad License Termination Amounts are not permitted to be paid as a result of legal restrictions in a local jurisdiction of an International Licensee, the holder of the Class A Interest will be entitled to receive, and the Clorox Partners on behalf of the Joint Venture shall cause to be paid an amount equal to such shortfall (in the case of clause (y), reduced by any withholding taxes that would have been imposed had the full amounts due actually been paid by the International Licensee). The amount of such payment shall be regarded as a guaranteed payment under Section 707(c) of the Code. For the avoidance of doubt, no P&G Partner shall be required to contribute or otherwise fund, directly or indirectly, such guaranteed payments. If the International Licensee is later permitted by the local jurisdiction to make royalty payments that were previously prohibited, the amount of such payments received shall be distributed to the Clorox Partners (such amounts, together with the amounts described in the last sentence of Section 3.5(a) hereof, shall be referred to as “Prohibited License Amounts”).

        Section 5.1   Board of Managers.

        (a) The day-to-day business of the Joint Venture will be managed by the Clorox Partners, under the direction and control of the board of managers of the Joint Venture (the “Board”). The Board will consist of five (5) managers or such other number (but in no event fewer than three (3)) as may be established from time to time by the Board. The Clorox Partners and the P&G Partners will be entitled to representation on the Board in proportion to their respective JV Interests, provided that the number of managers that each of the Clorox Partners (together) and the P&G Partners (together) may appoint will be rounded to the nearest whole number. Notwithstanding the foregoing, during the Term, the P&G Partners (together) will have the right to appoint at least one member of the Board. The remaining members of the Board will be appointed by the Clorox Partners, provided that, in the event the total number of members is adjusted, the Clorox Partners will in all cases have the right to appoint a majority of the Board. In the event the P&G Partners exercise the P&G Option, the P&G Partners’ representation on the Board will be adjusted, if necessary, so as to comply with this Section 5.1(a). Each JV Partner will have the right to remove and designate replacements of those members of the Board appointed by it, and each JV Partner agrees to take any actions necessary to cause such designations or removals in accordance with this Section 5.1 to be given immediate effect, and to give effect to decisions of the Board validly taken in accordance with the terms hereof. The initial Board will consist of Warwick Every-Burns, Wayne Delker, Greg Frank and Larry Peiros as the Clorox Partners’ appointees and Robert McDonald as the P&G Partners’ appointee. Replacement Board members designated by the P&G Partners will be reasonably acceptable to Clorox. The Board will appoint by majority vote one of its members appointed by the Clorox Partners to preside at meetings of the Board.

        (b) The P&G Partners will also be entitled to designate in writing to Clorox up to two (2) representatives reasonably satisfactory to Clorox to attend all meetings of the Board in a nonvoting observer capacity (the “P&G Observers”). Such representatives will receive copies of all notices, minutes, consents, and other materials as and when provided to the members of the Board, provided that all such representatives must agree to be bound by the same policies and agreements relating to confidentiality with respect to information concerning the Joint Venture as apply to the members of the Board appointed by the P&G Partners.

        (c) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of this Article V will not entitle any Person to receive any information from any Clorox Partner in the event and to the extent that: (i) such information would be subject to attorney-client or other legally-recognized privilege except for its being provided to such Person and (A) based on the reasonable advice of its counsel the Clorox Partner determines that such privilege would no longer be available in the event the information was disclosed to such Person and (B) the Clorox Partner desires to retain the availability of such privilege with respect to such information, (ii) such information is subject to confidentiality obligations of the Clorox Partners to third parties, which obligations existed prior to the date of this Agreement and would be breached by the disclosure to such Person or (iii)

such information is determined by Clorox reasonably and in good faith as being information that could be used by the P&G Partners to the competitive disadvantage of any business of operations of Clorox and its Subsidiaries other than the Glad Global Business. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Parties acknowledge and agree that they intend to minimize the amount of information not shared by the Clorox Partners with the P&G Partners with respect to the Glad Global Business. Accordingly, the Clorox Partners agree to use their [*   *   *] efforts to identify and implement appropriate means to share such information while at the same time protecting the interests of the Joint Venture and the Clorox Partners.

The Board will have the general powers and duties typically vested in the board of directors of a corporation and all other powers and duties over the Joint Venture and its business except as expressly provided elsewhere in this Agreement, provided that the power of the Board will be no greater than the powers of the board of directors or equivalent governing body of any other business unit of Clorox, and the operations of the Glad Business will remain subject to in all respects, and the provisions of this Section 5.1 will in no way affect, any requirements for approval of the board of directors of Clorox with respect to any matter. Certain specific items that will be subject to Board-level authorization are identified in Sections 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5 hereof.

        (e) The Joint Venture will be managed in the United States on a day-to-day basis by a Glad Leadership Team (“Glad Leadership Team”) that will consist of the executive management team for the Glad Business and will report to the Board. The composition of the Glad Leadership Team will consist primarily of representatives of [*   *   *]. The P&G Partners [*   *   *] Glad Leadership Team [*   *   *] position to be determined by the Board, and subject to the [*   *   *]. The representatives [*   *   *] on the Glad Leadership Team will [*   *   *] will be attributed to the [*   *   *].

        (f) The persons designated by the P&G Partners as Board members, P&G Observers and [*   *   *] will all be employees of P&G or its Subsidiaries who have sufficient seniority, knowledge and experience to contribute to the success of the Glad Business.

        (g) No member of the Board or P&G Observer will receive any compensation for serving as Board member or non-voting observer on the Board, other than reimbursement for reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for travel to and from meetings of the Board, which reimbursement will be paid by the Party appointing such Board member or non-voting observer.

        (h) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, but subject to the provisions of Section 7.1 hereof, all matters relating to the pricing of intercompany transfers and charges between or among any of the Clorox Partners will be decided by the Clorox Partners, in their sole discretion, and the Board will have no control whatsoever over such matters, provided that such intercompany transfers and charges are consistent with the JV Accounting Principles, this Agreement and the Related Agreements and the effects of all such intercompany transfers and charges on the calculation of Net Profits and Net Loss of the Joint Venture are eliminated therefrom in accordance with the JV Accounting Principles.

        (i) The Board will have the right to form one or more committees of the Board and to delegate authority to such committees in its discretion, provided that the formation of any committee, its size, the identity of its members, and the scope of authority to be delegated to it will all subject to the unanimous approval of the Board.

        Section 5.2   Meetings of the Board.

        (a) The Board will meet at least six (6) times a year for the first two Fiscal Years of the Joint Venture and four (4) times annually thereafter. Regular meetings of the Board will be scheduled with at least five (5) Business Days notice. Special meetings of the Board for any purpose may be called at any time by the person selected to preside at meetings of the Board, upon at least two (2) Business Days notice unless waived by each member of the Board. Notice of the time and place of any meeting of the Board will be given to each Board member (i) personally communicated to them by telephone, and confirmed in writing by facsimile or electronic mail, or (ii) communicated by Federal Express or other comparable overnight courier service (receipt requested).

        (b) Meetings of the Board will be held at the Joint Venture’s offices in Oakland, California, unless some other place is designated in the notice of the meeting. Any member of the Board may participate in a meeting by conference telephone or similar medium so long as all members of the Board participating in such meeting can hear one another and any such member will count towards the determination of the presence of a quorum. Accurate minutes of any meeting of the Board will be maintained by the person designated by the Board for that purpose.

        (c) A quorum for any meeting of the Board will require the presence of (x) a majority of the total number of incumbent members of the Board and (y) at least one member appointed by the P&G Partners, which member must be a voting member. Any Board member may appoint another individual to act in his or her stead for a particular Board meeting by executing a written proxy that is delivered to the Board at the meeting and filed with the records of the Board with respect to such meeting. Any Board member making such an appointment will seek in good faith to provide that the person appointed will be of comparable seniority and/or experience with respect to the Joint Venture to such Board member. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, an action or decision of the Board will require the consent or vote of a majority of its members. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or by applicable law, the action of a majority of the members of the Board present at any meeting at which there is a quorum, when duly assembled, is valid. A meeting at which a quorum is initially present may continue to transact business, notwithstanding the withdrawal of members of the Board, if any action taken is approved by a majority of the required quorum for such meeting. If at any meeting of the Board that has been duly called or noticed, no Board member(s) appointed by the P&G Partners are present, such meeting will be adjourned and reconvened in two (2) Business Days, unless such adjournment has been waived by each of the members of the Board. Notice of the revised meeting date will be given to each Board member pursuant to the foregoing provisions excluding the number of days of advance notice. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Section 5.2(c), in the event that no Board member(s) appointed by the P&G Partners are present at such reconvened meeting, such meeting will be deemed to have a quorum if a majority of the total number of Board members is present. Meetings of the Board will be delayed only once for lack of

        (d) With respect to a meeting which has not been duly called or noticed pursuant to the foregoing provisions, all transactions carried out at the meeting are as valid as if they had been carried out at a meeting regularly called and noticed if: (i) all members of the Board are present at the meeting, and sign a written consent to the holding of such meeting, (ii) a majority of the members of the Board are present and if those not present sign a waiver of notice of such meeting or a consent to holding the meeting or an approval of the minutes thereof, whether prior to or after the holding of such meeting, which waiver, consent or approval will be filed with the other records of the Joint Venture or (iii) all members of the Board attend a meeting without notice and do not protest prior to the meeting or at its commencement that notice was not given to them.

        (e) Any action required or permitted to be taken by the Board may be taken without a meeting and will have the same force and effect as if taken by a vote of Board at a meeting properly called and notice, if authorized by a writing signed individually or collectively by all, but not less than all, the members of the Board. Such consent will be filed with the records of the Joint Venture.

        (f) A reasonably detailed agenda for any meeting of the Board will be supplied to each member of the Board at the same time notice of the meeting is given, together with other appropriate documentation relating to items on such agenda. Any member of the Board wishing to place a matter on the agenda of any meeting may do so by communicating with the person selected to preside at meetings of the Board.

        Section 5.3   P&G Veto Rights.

        (a) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, during the Term, none of the following actions will be taken by the Clorox Partners or their Subsidiaries, regardless of whether such actions will have been approved by the board of directors of Clorox or any Clorox Partner, without either (x) the prior written consent of the P&G Partners or (y) the approval of a majority of the Board members appointed by the P&G Partners:

        (ix) the Glad Business [*   *   *];

        (x) any termination of any [* * *], any failure to renew the term of any [* * *] or any change to the [* * *] terms of any [* * *] in each case prior to the earlier of (A) termination of [* * *] and (B) any [* * *]; and

        (b) In the event that the Board designees of the P&G Partners fail to approve any action approved by a majority of the Board and the Joint Venture is prohibited from taking such action (a “P&G Veto”), the P&G Partners and Clorox will attempt to resolve such dispute by immediately submitting it for resolution to the respective chief executive officers of Clorox and P&G. The chief executive officers will negotiate in good faith to resolve the dispute in at least one face-to-face meeting to occur within thirty (30) days (the process of such submission and negotiation is referred to herein as “Escalation”). If the chief executive officers of Clorox and P&G are unable to resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days, the Joint Venture will be prohibited from taking such action and Clorox will have the ability to exercise its Call Right pursuant to Section 6.5(b)(i), if and only to the extent applicable (such thirty (30) day period, the “Resolution Period”).

        Section 5.4   Business Plan, Budget and Reports to the Board.

        (a) The preliminary business plan for the Joint Venture has been presented to the P&G Parties and agreed upon by the Parties. The preliminary business plan with respect to the use of the P&G Parties’ proprietary Forceflex and Impress technologies, which technologies are the subject of licenses under the P&G License Agreement, is attached as Exhibit D. All subsequent business plans as well as the long-term strategic plan for the Joint Venture will be submitted for approval to the Board, in a process that will be consistent with the submission and approval process of Clorox for the board of directors of Clorox.

Additional information about the Joint Venture will be provided to individual members of the Board upon reasonable request, provided that it is understood that such requests should not be unduly burdensome or otherwise of such a nature as to interfere with the customary operations of the Glad Business or cause the Glad Business to operate other than in the ordinary course.

        Section 5.5   Additional Items for Board Approval.

        (a) Any candidate to become a member of the Glad Leadership Team must be submitted to and approved by the Board prior to becoming a member of such Glad Leadership Team. The Board will have the right to meet with any such candidate prior to acting with respect to him or her, and if the Board declines to do so then the P&G Partners will have an opportunity to meet with such candidate prior to the Board acting with respect to such candidate. The Board may also designate other key employee positions in the Glad Business with respect to which it must approve the candidates, and which the Board will have the right to interview prior to their appointment (and which the P&G Partners will have an opportunity to meet with if the Board declines).

        (d) Any (i) assumption or incurrence of Indebtedness (other than Parent Loans) in excess of $[*   *   *] or (ii) purchase or other acquisition and any sale, transfer or other disposition of any business, division or Person that will be attributed to the Glad Business that will not be subject to the prior consent of P&G pursuant to Sections 5.3(a)(ii), 5.3(a)(iii) or 5.3(a)(iv) hereof will be submitted to and subject to the approval of the Board.

ARTICLE VI

TRANSFERS OF INTEREST; TERM AND TERMINATION

        Section 6.1   General; Restrictions on Transfers.

        (a) No JV Partner may Transfer all or any part of its JV Interests except to a Permitted Transferee, or pursuant to Section 2.7 hereof. For purposes of clarification, in the event Clorox engages in any Third-Party Sale, Clorox will assign to the transferee, and the transferee will assume, this Agreement as part of such Third-Party Sale as well as all Related Agreements other than those Related Agreements that by their terms will terminate in connection with such Third-Party Sale. All Transfers of JV Interests will be effected by written notice of

46

such Transfer to the Joint Venture. Upon receipt of such notice, the JV Interests of the JV Partners will be modified to reflect any Transfer effected in accordance with this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any sale, transfer or assignment of a JV Interest or this Agreement to a Subsidiary of the transferring Party will not relieve the transferring Party of its obligations hereunder

        (b) No JV Partner will Transfer all or any part of its JV Interest to any Person (including any Permitted Transferee that is not already bound by the terms of this Agreement) without such transferee executing and the transferring Party delivering to the Board and any non-transferring Party a written agreement to be bound by the terms of this Agreement and all Related Agreements in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Board and the non-transferring Parties. Any Transfer by a JV Partner of all or any part of its JV Interest must be in compliance with all applicable federal and state securities laws, and the provisions of this Section 6.1(b) and the other provisions of this Article VI.

        (c) Any Transfer or attempted Transfer by a JV Partner in violation of this Section 6.1 will be null and void and of no force or effect whatever. Each JV Partner who is a transferring Party hereby further agrees to hold the Joint Venture and every other JV Partner and its Affiliates wholly and completely harmless from any cost, Liability, or damage (including Liabilities for income taxes and costs of enforcing this indemnity) incurred by any of such indemnified Persons as a result of a Transfer or an attempted Transfer in violation of this Agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, the provisions of this Section 6.1 do not limit in any respect any Transfer by any Clorox Partner of any business, assets or properties of the Glad Business, including without limitation a Third Party Sale pursuant to Section 6.7 hereof; provided, such Clorox Partner has assigned to the transferee and the transferee has assumed this Agreement and all Related Agreements to the extent required by the terms of Section 6.1.

        Section 6.2   Effect of Transfers on Distributions among JV Partners.

        Upon the occurrence of a Permitted Transfer of a JV Interest during any Fiscal Year, Net Profits, Net Losses, each item thereof, and all other items attributed to such JV Interest for such Fiscal Year will be divided and allocated between the transferor and the transferee by taking into account their varying interests during the Fiscal Year in accordance with Code Section 706(d), using any conventions permitted by law and selected by the Board. Except as otherwise provided in Section 3.4(c)(v), all distributions on or before the date of a Permitted Transfer will be made to the transferor, and all distributions thereafter will be made to the transferee. Solely for purposes of making such allocations and distributions, a Permitted Transfer will be recognized upon the Board’s receipt of (i) written notice stating the date such Interest was transferred and such other information as the Board may reasonably require and (ii) the written agreement to be executed by the Permitted Transferee agreeing to be bound by the terms of this Agreement pursuant to the requirements of Section 6.1 hereof. The Board will incur no Liability for making allocations and distributions in accordance with the provisions of this Section 6.2 whether or not the Board has knowledge of any Transfer of ownership of any JV Interest.

        Section 6.3   Term of Joint Venture.

        (a) The term of the Joint Venture (the “Term”) will commence at the Closing and will expire on the twenty-year anniversary of the Closing Date (the “Initial Term”), unless earlier terminated pursuant to the provisions of Sections 6.4, 6.5, 6.6 or 6.7 hereof. Either the P&G Partners or Clorox may deliver written notice to the other not less than [*   *   *] prior to the end of the Initial Term requesting that the Term be extended for an additional ten (10) years after the end of the Initial Term. If the Party receiving the notice agrees to such extension, the Term will terminate on the thirty-year anniversary of the Closing Date, unless earlier terminated pursuant to the provisions of Sections 6.4, 6.5, 6.6 or 6.7 hereof. If the Party receiving the notice does not agree to such extension, the Term will automatically terminate at the end of the Initial Term. The expiration of the Term will not relieve any Party from any liability it may have to any other Party arising out of or relating to acts or omissions prior to such expiration.

        (b) The provisions of Section 6.3, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 9.1(b) and 9.2, and Articles X and XI shall survive any termination or expiration, in whole or in part, of this Agreement. The termination or expiration of this Agreement will not relieve either Party of any liability it may have to the other Party arising out of or relating to acts or omissions occurring prior to expiration or termination.

        Section 6.4   P&G Put Rights.

        (a) The P&G Partners will have the right to sell to Clorox, and upon exercise of such right Clorox (or the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox) will be required to purchase, all (but not less than all) of the P&G Partners’ JV Interests, including the P&G Option (if the sale is to occur during the Option Exercise Period and the P&G Option is not yet exercised) (the “Put Right”) in the event of (x) any Change of Control of Clorox as set forth in Section 6.4(a)(i) below or (y) the failure to cure certain breaches by Clorox Partners as set forth in Section 6.4(a)(ii) below.

        (i) In the event a Clorox Change of Control occurs during the Term, Clorox will provide the P&G Partners with written notice of the Clorox Change of Control (a “Change of Control Notice”) within [*   *   *] after the closing of the transaction resulting in the Clorox Change of Control. The P&G Partners may irrevocably exercise their Put Right in connection with such Clorox Change of Control by delivering written notice of such irrevocable exercise to Clorox within [*   *   *] days after the receipt of the Change of Control Notice. The purchase price payable by Clorox to the P&G Partners for such JV Interests and the P&G Option (if unexercised but exercisable) will be paid to the P&G Partners and will be cash equal to the Fair Market Value of their respective JV Interests and the P&G Option (if unexercised, but exercisable) as of the date of closing of such Clorox Change of Control, but will be reduced by the applicable Services Termination Amount, if any, pursuant to Section 6.8 hereof. If the P&G Partners do not deliver a written exercise notice to Clorox within the [*   *   *] period referred to above, the Put Right will terminate and Clorox will have no further obligation with respect to the Put Right with respect to such Clorox Change of Control, provided that such termination will not in any way affect and the P&G Partners will retain all rights pursuant to this

Section 6.4 with respect to any future Clorox Change of Control.

        (ii) In the event a Clorox Partner knowingly breaches in any material respect a material obligation of a Clorox Partner under the provisions of this Agreement or any Related Agreement during the Term, the P&G Partners will have the right to provide Clorox with written notice of such breach. The Clorox Partners will then have a period of [*   *   *] to attempt to cure such breach (which period will be suspended to the extent Clorox is contesting the breach in good faith). If the Clorox Partners do not cure such breach in all material respects within such [*   *   *] period, the P&G Partners and Clorox will attempt to resolve such dispute by Escalation. If the chief executive officers of Clorox and P&G are unable to resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days, P&G Partners may exercise its Put Right in connection with such material breach within [*   *   *] after the end of such thirty-day period. The purchase price payable by Clorox to the P&G Partners for such JV Interests and the P&G Option (if unexercised, but exercisable) will be cash equal to Fair Market Value of the P&G Partners’ JV Interests and the P&G Option (if unexercised, but exercisable) as of the date of [*   *   *] with respect to such breach, provided that for purposes of this Section 6.4(a)(ii), the Fair Market Value of P&G Partners’ initial Ordinary JV Interest of ten percent (10%) and Class C Interest during the period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on the [*   *   *] anniversary of the Closing Date will be an aggregate of no less than $140 million. If the P&G Partners do not deliver an exercise notice to Clorox within the [*   *   *] period referred to above, their Put Right will terminate and Clorox will have no further obligation with respect to the Put Right with respect to such Clorox Partner breach and any related matters of which the P&G Partners have actual knowledge, provided that such termination will not in any way affect and the P&G Partners will retain all rights pursuant to this Section 6.4 with respect to any future Clorox Partner breach. In addition, the P&G Partners will have the right, but not the obligation, to terminate the P&G Services Agreement at the time of exercise of its Put Right pursuant to this Section 6.4(a)(ii).

(b) The closing of any sale of a JV Interest pursuant to exercise by P&G Sub of a Put Right pursuant to this Section 6.4 will take place at the principal office of Clorox on the [*   *   *] after final determination of Fair Market Value of the JV Interest being sold, provided that all material orders, consents and approvals of Governmental Authorities legally required for the closing of such sale will have been obtained and be in effect. At such closing, Clorox (or the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox) will deliver the purchase price in immediately available funds in the appropriate amount (unless other consideration has been mutually agreed upon by the P&G Partners and Clorox). The P&G Partners will deliver their JV Interests to Clorox (or the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox) free and clear of all Liens, and the Term of the Joint Venture will terminate as of such closing.

        Section 6.5   Clorox Purchase of P&G JV Interest.

        (a) In the event of any termination or expiration of the Term in accordance with Section 6.3, Clorox (or the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox) will purchase, and the P&G Partners will be required to sell to Clorox or such Clorox Partner, all of the JV Interests held by the P&G Partners. In the event of a purchase by Clorox pursuant to this Section 6.5(a) due to a

        (b) Clorox will also have the right, but not the obligation, to purchase, and upon exercise of Clorox’s right the P&G Partners will be required to sell to Clorox (or the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox), all of the P&G Partners’ JV Interests, including the P&G Option if such exercise by Clorox is within the Option Exercise Period and the P&G Option is not yet exercised, (the “Call Right”) for a cash purchase price of Fair Market Value in the event of (x) the failure to resolve certain P&G Vetoes within the Resolution Period as set forth in Section 6.5(b)(i) below or (y) the failure to cure certain breaches by P&G Partners as set forth in Section 6.5(b)(ii) below.

        (i) In the event Clorox and the P&G Partners fail pursuant to Section 5.3(b) to resolve a dispute with respect to a P&G Veto pursuant to (A) Section 5.3(a)(iii), (B) Section 5.3(a)(iv) or (C) Section 5.3(a)(v) with respect to a transaction that is on Arm’s Length Terms, Clorox will have the right to exercise its Call Right by providing written notice to the P&G Partners of such exercise (a “Deadlock Notice”) within [*   *   *] of the end of the Resolution Period, and if Clorox does not provide the P&G Partners with a Deadlock Notice in a timely manner in accordance with this Section 6.5(b)(i), all rights of Clorox to exercise its Call Right with respect to such P&G Veto will terminate, provided that such termination will not in any way affect and Clorox will retain all rights pursuant to this Section 6.5 with respect to any future P&G Veto. Fair Market Value of the P&G Partners’ JV Interests and the P&G Option (if exercisable but unexercised) for purposes of a purchase pursuant to this Section 6.5(b)(i) will be determined as of the date of the [*   *   *], provided that for purposes of this Section 6.5(b)(i), the Fair Market Value of the P&G Partners initial Ordinary JV Interest of ten percent (10%) and Class C Interest during the period commencing on the Closing Date and ending on the [*   *   *] anniversary of the Closing Date will be an aggregate of no less than $140 million.

        (ii) In the event a P&G Partner knowingly breaches in any material respect a material obligation of a P&G Partner under the provisions of this Agreement or any Related Agreement during the Term, Clorox will have the right to provide the P&G Partners with written notice of such breach. The P&G Partners will then have a period of [*   *   *] to attempt to cure such breach (which period will be suspended to the extent the P&G Partners are contesting the breach in good faith). If the P&G Partners do not cure such breach in all material respects within such [*   *   *] period, the P&G Partners and Clorox will attempt to resolve such dispute by Escalation. If the chief executive officers of Clorox and the P&G Partners are unable to resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days, Clorox may exercise its Call Right in connection with such material breach within [*   *   *] after the end of such thirty-day period. The purchase price payable by Clorox to the P&G Partners for such JV Interests and the P&G Option (if unexercised but exercisable) will be cash equal to Fair Market Value [*   *   *] with respect to such breach. If Clorox does not deliver an exercise notice to the P&G Partners within the [*   *   *] period referred to above, its Call Right will terminate and the P&G Partners will have no further obligation with respect to the Call Right with respect to such P&G

        (c) The closing of any sale of a JV Interest and the P&G Option pursuant to an exercise by Clorox of a Call Right pursuant to this Section 6.5 will take place at the principal office of Clorox on the [*   *   *] after final determination of Fair Market Value of the JV Interest being sold, provided that all material orders, consents and approvals of Governmental Authorities legally required for the closing of such sale will have been obtained and be in effect. At such closing, Clorox (or the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox) will deliver the purchase price in immediately available funds in the appropriate amount (unless other consideration has been mutually agreed upon by the P&G Partners and Clorox). The P&G Partners will deliver their JV Interests to Clorox (or the Clorox Partner designated by Clorox) free and clear of all Liens, and the Term of the Joint Venture will terminate as of such closing.

        Section 6.6   Tag-Along Rights.

        (a) With respect to any proposed direct or indirect sale, transfer or assignment (which will not include a bona fide pledge of assets) by any Clorox Partner of all or substantially all of the Glad Global Business (other than such a sale, transfer or assignment to a Clorox Affiliate), Clorox will have the obligation, and each P&G Partner will have the right (the “Tag-Along Right”), to require the proposed transferee to purchase from each P&G Partner all, but not less than all, its JV Interests, and the P&G Option if the Tag-Along Right is exercised during the Option Exercise Period and the P&G Option is not yet exercised, at a price equal to Fair Market Value, and upon the same other terms and conditions as to be given to the Clorox Partners, provided that in order to be entitled to exercise their Tag-Along Right, the P&G Partners must agree to give the same indemnities as the Clorox Partners agree to make in connection with the proposed sale, transfer or assignment, which obligations will be borne by the P&G Partners on a pro rata basis based on the relative Ordinary JV Interests of all the JV Partners but in the case of each P&G Partner will in no event exceed ten percent (10%) of the sale proceeds received by such P&G Partner. In addition, the purchase price payable to the P&G Partners will be reduced by the applicable Services Termination Amount, if any, pursuant to Section 6.8 hereof. With respect to the P&G Option if the P&G Option is unexercised but exercisable, the P&G Partners will receive from the proceeds otherwise payable to the Clorox Partners the amount by which the Fair Market Value of the Ordinary JV Interest and Class A Interest subject to the P&G Option exceeds the Option Price. The purchase price payable to the P&G Partners for the P&G Option (if the P&G Option is unexercised, but exercisable) will therefore be the greater of (i) zero and (ii) an amount equal to (x) the Fair Market Value of the Ordinary JV Interest and Class A Interest to be acquired by the P&G Partners upon exercise of the P&G Option minus (y) the then-applicable Option Price (and the amount of the purchase price payable to the Clorox Parties will be reduced by an equal amount). Upon completion of such sale the P&G Option will terminate.

        (b) Clorox must give notice to the P&G Partners of each proposed sale, transfer or assignment (which will not include a bona fide pledge of assets) giving rise to a Tag-Along Right

at least [*   *   *] prior to the proposed consummation of such sale, transfer or assignment, setting forth the JV Interest proposed to be so sold, transferred or assigned, the name and address of the proposed transferee, the proposed amount of consideration therefor and terms and conditions agreed to by the proposed transferee. The Tag-Along Right must be exercised by a P&G Partner within [*   *   *] days following receipt of the Clorox notice, by delivery of a written irrevocable notice to Clorox indicating exercise of the Tag-Along Right. If the proposed transferee fails to complete its purchase from any P&G Partner that has properly exercised its tag-along rights, then Clorox will not be permitted to make the proposed Transfer, and any such attempted sale, transfer or assignment will be void and of no effect. If a P&G Partner exercises its Tag-Along Rights, the closing of the purchase will take place concurrently with and as part of the closing of the sale of the Glad Global Business, and the Term of the Joint Venture will terminate as of such closing.

        Section 6.7   Drag Along Rights.

        (a) If at any time during the Term, any Clorox Partner enters into an agreement to consummate a transaction constituting a direct or indirect sale of all or substantially all of the Glad Global Business (other than a Clorox Change of Control) (a “Third-Party Sale”), then upon the written demand of Clorox, each P&G Partner will agree to sell all its JV Interests, and the P&G Option if the Third-Party Sale is during the Option Exercise Period and the P&G Option is not yet exercised, and at a price equal to the Fair Market Value for such JV Interests, and upon the same other terms and conditions as to be given to the Clorox Partners, provided that in order to be entitled to exercise their rights in connection with a Third Party Sale, the P&G Partners must agree to give the same indemnities as the Clorox Partners agree to make in connection with the proposed sale, transfer or assignment, which obligations will be borne by the P&G Partners on a pro rata basis based on the relative Ordinary JV Interests of all JV Partners but in the case of each P&G Partner will in no event exceed ten percent (10%) of the sale proceeds received by such P&G Partner.. Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to any a Third-Party Sale that occurs prior to [*   *   *] anniversary of the Closing Date, the purchase price to be paid to the P&G Partners in such Third-Party Sale for P&G’s initial Ordinary JV Interest of ten percent (10%) and Class C Interest will be an aggregate of no less than $140 million. With respect to the P&G Option if the P&G Option is unexercised but exercisable, the P&G Partners will receive from the proceeds otherwise payable to the Clorox Partners the amount by which the Fair Market Value of the Ordinary JV Interest and Class A Interest subject to the P&G Option exceeds the Option Price. The purchase price payable to the P&G Partners for the P&G Option (if the P&G Option is unexercised, but exercisable) will therefore be the greater of (i) zero and (ii) an amount equal to (x) the Fair Market Value of the Ordinary JV Interest and Class A Interest to be acquired by P&G upon exercise of the P&G Option minus (y) the then-applicable Option Price (and the amount of the purchase price payable to the Clorox Parties will be reduced by an equal amount). Upon completion of such sale the P&G Option will terminate. Clorox agrees it will not enter into a Third-Party Sale, unless otherwise agreed by the P&G Partners, without obtaining an opinion from a nationally-recognized investment banking firm selected by Clorox, which investment banking firm is not otherwise entitled to any financial advisor’s or similar fee in connection with the Third-Party Sale, [*   *   *].

        (b) Clorox may exercise its rights in connection with a Third-Party Sale at any time during the Term upon written notice to the P&G Partners, setting forth the name and address of the proposed transferee, the proposed amount of consideration therefor and terms and conditions agreed to by the proposed transferee, provided that Clorox will use [*   *   *] efforts to give notice to the P&G Partners at least [*   *   *] prior to the proposed consummation of any such Third-Party Sale. Each P&G Partner will consent to and raise no objections to the proposed transaction and will take all other actions necessary or desirable to cause the consummation of such Third-Party Sale on the terms proposed by Clorox. If Clorox exercises its rights to cause a sale pursuant to this Section 6.7, the closing of the purchase will take place concurrently with and as part of the closing of the sale of the Glad Global Business, and the Term of the Joint Venture will terminate as of such closing. If the proposed transferee fails to complete its purchase from any P&G Partner at the closing of any Third-Party Sale, then Clorox will not be permitted to make the proposed Third-Party Sale, and any such attempted sale, transfer or assignment will be void and of no effect.

        (c) Clorox further agrees that in the event that it [*   *   *] Third Party Sale, it will notify the P&G Partners and if the P&G Partners notifies Clorox in writing within [*   *   *] of receipt of such notice that P&G has made a good faith determination to pursue [*   *   *], Clorox and P&G will negotiate [*   *   *] days with respect to [*   *   *] by P&G of the [*   *   *] on terms satisfactory to each of Clorox and P&G, provided that the provisions of this Section 6.7(c) will in no way obligate Clorox to notify or negotiate with P&G in the event Clorox receives a [*   *   *] for a Third Party Sale, and provided further that it is understood that in the event P&G and Clorox do not enter into a binding agreement with respect to such a purchase on terms and conditions satisfactory to each Party in its sole discretion within such [*   *   *] day period, Clorox will have the right thereafter to [*   *   *] into a Third Party Sale with any other Person.

        Section 6.8   Services Termination Amount.

     (a) In the event the P&G Services Agreement is terminated by P&G pursuant to Section 8.2(b) of the P&G Services Agreement in connection with an exercise by P&G Partners of their Put Right pursuant to Section 6.4(a)(i) hereof or their Tag-Along Right pursuant to Section 6.6 hereof, the aggregate purchase price payable to the P&G Partners with respect to their JV Interests pursuant to such Sections 6.4(a) and 6.6, as applicable, will be reduced as follows:

Date of P&G Notice of Termination       Purchase Price Reduction
On the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the one-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the two-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the three-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the four-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the five-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the six-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the seven-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the eight-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]
On the nine-year anniversary of the Closing Date   $[*   *   *]

To the extent that the date of the P&G notice of termination is delivered other than on one of the anniversary date referenced above, the purchase price reduction will equal the sum of the purchase price reduction on the immediately succeeding anniversary date referenced above plus the product of (i) the number of days until the immediately succeeding anniversary date divided by 365 and (ii) the purchase price reduction amount on the immediately preceding anniversary date minus the purchase price reduction amount on the immediately succeeding anniversary date.

Exhibit F also sets forth provisions providing for the modification or termination of the Clorox Services. All costs and expenses that will otherwise be attributed to the Joint Venture or the Glad Licensed Business with respect to employees of Clorox or the Clorox Parties will be attributed solely in accordance with the JV Accounting Principles. Under no circumstances will the Clorox Services be considered for tax purposes to be given in exchange for any portion of the Clorox Parties’ JV Interest.

Any such proposals by P&G with respect to the Glad Business will be reviewed by the Glad Leadership Team and the Board, and must be approved by the Board prior to being implemented. Any such proposals by P&G with respect to the Glad Licensed Business will be reviewed by The Glad Products Company and the International Affiliate conducting the relevant Glad Local Business.

        (c) As used in this Section 7.2, “Competing Business” means the [*   *   *] bags, wraps, straws or covered containers [*   *   *] but excluding [*   *   *].

        (d) The restrictions contained in this Section 7.2 will terminate with respect to P&G and its Subsidiaries in the event of an exercise by P&G of its Put Right pursuant to Section 6.4(a)(ii) hereof. The expiration or termination of this Section 7.2 will not affect any of the Parties’ rights under the P&G License Agreement.

        (e) In order to further the business of the Joint Venture and to protect the Intellectual Property and other contributions of the Parties to the Joint Venture, during the Term of this Agreement and for [*   *   *], P&G [*   *   *]. For purposes of clarification, P&G will not be deemed to be in breach hereof if any products based on [*   *   *] by a customer or broker (or a subsequent customer or broker) [*   *   *], so long as P&G and its Subsidiaries [*   *   *]. Nothing herein will prevent P&G or its Subsidiaries from selling to any third party [*   *   *] (except as set forth in the immediately preceding two sentences).

        Section 7.3   Confidentiality; Non-Disclosure.

        (a) Each of Clorox and P&G will, and will cause their respective Subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees and any other Person to whom such Party discloses information with respect to the Joint Venture, to hold in confidence all documents furnished to it, by or on behalf of the other Party in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement. For purposes of this Section 7.3, references to information of a Party or to disclosure of information by or to a Party shall in each case include information of, disclosure by and disclosure to Affiliates of such Party.

        (b) During the Term, Clorox and P&G and their respective Subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees and other representatives will be given access to non-public, proprietary information that relates to the other’s past, present, and future research, development, business activities, products, services, and technical knowledge, as well as non-public information relating to the Glad Global Business and the Joint Venture, including without limitation the information provided with respect to the Glad Global Business and the Joint Venture to the Board, the members of the Glad Leadership Team, and the P&G Observers and the financial and other information made available to the Parties pursuant to Sections 7.9 and 9.1 hereof (collectively, “Confidential Information”). The Parties acknowledge that certain of the Confidential Information could be used by one Party to the competitive disadvantage of the business or operations of the other Party unrelated to the Joint Venture or the Glad Global Business, and therefore agree as follows with respect to all the Confidential Information:

        (i) the Confidential Information of the disclosing Party may be used by the receiving Party only in connection with the Joint Venture and the Glad Global Business;

        (ii) each Party agrees to protect, and to cause their respective Subsidiaries, directors, officers, employees and any other Person to whom such Party discloses Confidential Information of the other Party, to protect the confidentiality of the Confidential Information of the other in the same manner that it protects the

confidentiality of its own proprietary and confidential information of like kind, but in no event will either Party exercise less than reasonable care in protecting such Confidential Information;

        (iii) access to any Confidential Information of the other Party will be restricted to (A) the members of the Board and (B) the P&G Observers, members of the Glad Leadership Team, and those other employees and other personnel of the Parties that (x) are made available to perform services with respect to the Joint Venture or the Glad Licensed Business pursuant to Section 7.1 as provided therein, or (y) otherwise need to know such Confidential Information for purposes of conducting the business of the Joint Venture or the Glad Licensed Business or implementing this Agreement or any Related Agreement (collectively, “Authorized Persons”). Each Party will cause the Authorized Persons of such Party not to disclose any Confidential Information to any other Person who is not an Authorized Person. Each Party will establish internal ethical walls and other policies and procedures reasonably satisfactory to the other Party to prevent the disclosure of Confidential Information of the other Party other than to Authorized Persons and other than for the purposes of providing services to or otherwise conducting the business of the Joint Venture or implementing this Agreement or any Related Agreement;

        (iv) all Confidential Information made available hereunder, including copies thereof, will be returned or destroyed upon the first to occur of (A) the termination of the Joint Venture or (B) any request by the disclosing Party, unless the receiving Party is otherwise allowed to retain such Confidential Information. Either Party may retain, subject to the terms of this Section 7.3, copies of the other’s Confidential Information required for compliance with record keeping or quality assurance requirements or other applicable legal requirements; and

        (v) nothing in this Agreement will prohibit or limit Clorox’s or P&G’s (or their Subsidiaries’) use of information (including, but not limited to, ideas, concepts, know-how, techniques, and methodologies) (A) previously known to it without an obligation of confidence, (B) independently developed by or for it, (C) acquired by it from a third party which is not, to its knowledge, under an obligation of confidence with respect to such information, or (D) which is or becomes publicly available through no breach of this Agreement. For avoidance of doubt, this Section 7.3 does not limit the disclosure by the Clorox Parties of information with respect to the Glad Global Business to Clorox and its Subsidiaries in the event such information does not include any Confidential Information disclosed by the P&G Parties.

        (c) Each Party further acknowledge and agree that it is possible that certain uses of its own Confidential Information could be detrimental to the Joint Venture or the Glad Global Business, and each Party will use [*   *   *] efforts to avoid any such detrimental use.

        (d) Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 7.3, the Parties agree that each of the other Parties may disclose Confidential Information to one or more third parties in a due diligence investigation being conducted by such third party in connection with a Third Party Sale

57

or a transaction that would result in a Clorox Change of Control, in the case of the Clorox Partners, or a transaction that would result in a P&G Change of Control, in the case of the P&G Partners. Prior to any disclosure of Confidential Information pursuant to this Section 7.3(d), the third party to whom such information is to be disclosed must have agreed to keep in confidence all Confidential Information to be disclosed to such third party, and the Party hereto disclosing such Confidential Information will be responsible for any disclosure of the Confidential Information by such third party.

        Section 7.4   Non-Solicitation.

        Each of Clorox and P&G agrees that the solicitation for employment by it or its Subsidiaries of employees of the other Party whom the soliciting Party becomes aware of as a result of the Joint Venture or the Glad Licensed Business would have an adverse impact on the Parties. Each of Clorox and P&G agrees that during the Term and for [*   *   *] thereafter it will, and it will cause its Subsidiaries to, take [*   *   *] steps to prevent its employees from making such solicitations; to use [*   *   *] efforts to cause itself and its Subsidiaries to enforce such prohibition; and, to the extent that it becomes aware of any such solicitation occurring within itself or any of its Subsidiaries, to take [*   *   *] action to cause such solicitation to immediately cease. In the event of any breach of these non-solicitation obligations, the Parties agree to conduct good faith discussions and negotiations to determine a mutually acceptable means of addressing such breach, provided that in no event will there be any penalty for any inadvertent breach of this provision by any Party.

        Section 7.5   Agreement to Cooperate; Further Assurances; Other Matters.

        (a) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each of the Parties will use all reasonable efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions and to do, or cause to be done, all things necessary, proper or advisable under applicable laws and regulations to consummate and make effective the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including providing information and using reasonable efforts to obtain all necessary or appropriate waivers, consents and approvals, and effecting all necessary registrations and filings, and will actively take all reasonable steps to pursue such waivers, consents and approvals for a period not to exceed three (3) months, after which period either Clorox or P&G will have the right to terminate this Agreement if such waivers, consents and approvals have not been received such that the condition to closing set forth in Section 8.1(b) has not been satisfied or if the Closing has not otherwise occurred. The Parties will timely and promptly make all filings which may be required by each of them in connection with the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements act of 1976, as amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder (the “HSR Act”) and any similar foreign legislation. Each Party will furnish to the other such necessary information and assistance as such Party may reasonably request in connection with the preparation of any necessary filings or submissions by it to any U.S. or foreign governmental agency, including any filings necessary under the provisions of the HSR Act. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, no Party nor any of their Affiliates will be required to make any disposition, including any disposition of, or any agreement to hold separate, any Subsidiary, asset or business, and no Party nor any of their Affiliates will be required to comply with any condition or undertaking or take any action which,

58

individually or in the aggregate, would materially adversely affect the economic benefits to such Party of the transactions contemplated hereby and by the Related Agreements, taken as a whole or adversely affect any other business of such Party or its Affiliates. In case at any time after the Closing Date any further action is necessary or desirable to carry out the purposes of this Agreement, the proper officers and directors of the Parties and their respective Affiliates will execute such further documents (including assignments, acknowledgments and consents and other instruments of transfer) and will take such further action as will be necessary or desirable to effect such transfer and to otherwise carry out the purposes of this Agreement, in each case to the extent not inconsistent with applicable law.

        (b)  P&G will have the right [*   *   *] year, upon reasonable notice to Clorox to have an independent public accounting firm review and audit that portion of the books, records and accounts of the Glad Business with respect to those transactions attributed to the Glad Business that are between Clorox and any Affiliate of Clorox for which the consent of P&G is not sought pursuant to Section 5.3(a)(v) by reason of such transactions being within the scope of Section 5.3(a)(v)(x). P&G agrees to cause any review conducted pursuant to this Section 7.5(b) to be conducted in a manner so as not to unreasonably interfere with the normal business operations of the Glad Business.

        (c)  In the event the Clorox Partners or any of their Subsidiaries wish to [*   *   *] of any business, division, Person or asset for which transaction the consent of the P&G Partners is required pursuant to [*   *   *], Clorox will notify the P&G Partners and if the P&G Partners notifies Clorox in writing within [*   *   *] of receipt of such notice that the P&G Partners has made a [*   *   *] to pursue a [*   *   *] business, division, Person or asset, Clorox and the P&G Partners will negotiate [*   *   *] for a period not to exceed [*   *   *] with respect to [*   *   *] by the P&G Partners of such business, division, Person or asset, on terms [*   *   *] Clorox and the P&G Partners, provided that it is understood that in the event the P&G Partners and Clorox do not enter into a binding agreement with respect to [*   *   *] to each Party in [*   *   *] within such [*   *   *] day period, Clorox will have the right thereafter to [*   *   *] and enter into a [*   *   *] of such business, division, Person or asset with any other Person.

        (d)  In the event of a Third-Party Sale by Clorox, Clorox will determine the actuarial liabilities with respect to the pensions of any defined benefit pension plans maintained by Clorox or any Affiliate which are subject to the funding requirements of Section 412 of the Code in which personnel engaged in the Glad Global Business at the time of the proposed sale are participating (the “Defined Benefit Plans”), based on the same actuarial assumptions that Clorox uses to fund the Defined Benefit Plans over time. Clorox will determine the pro rata portion of those actuarial liabilities attributable to Glad Global Business personnel who will become employees of the purchaser in connection with the proposed sale (the “Pro Rata Portion”) assumed as compared to the total actuarial liabilities for the Defined Benefit Plans. Clorox will propose that the purchaser accept a spin-off of the Pro Rata Portion to a tax-qualified defined benefit pension plan maintained by the purchaser for its own employees (a “Purchaser Plan”) to such assets for the benefit of the Glad Global Business personnel who become employees of the purchaser in connection with the proposed sale. To the extent the purchaser negotiates a transaction in which an amount different from the Pro Rata Portion is spun off from the Defined

59

Benefit Plans to the Purchaser Plan then (i) if the purchaser accepts an amount less than the Pro Rata Portion, P&G Sub will receive an amount equal to (A) its Ordinary JV Interest percentage multiplied by (B) the difference between the Pro Rata Portion and the actual amount accepted by the purchaser and (ii) if the purchaser acquires more than the Pro Rata Portion, P&G Sub’s purchase price received for its interest in the Joint Venture will be decreased by an amount equal to (A) its Ordinary JV Interest percentage multiplied by (B) the difference between the amount proposed by Clorox in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence and the actual amount accepted by the purchaser. With respect to any post-retiree healthcare benefits not assumed by the third party purchaser, the JV Partners will divide that expense between them, based on their proportionate share of the actuarial liabilities with respect to such benefit programs calculated on the basis of their relative Ordinary JV Interests.

        (e)  Prior to the Closing, the Clorox Parties will deliver to the P&G Parties a supplement to Schedules 2.2(a)(i) and 2.2(a)(iii) setting forth the amounts of the eliminations and additions referenced therein (the “Supplemental Schedule”).

        Section 7.6   Public Statements.

        Before any Party or any Affiliate of such Party will release any information concerning this Agreement or the matters contemplated hereby which is intended for or may result in public dissemination thereof, they will cooperate with the other Parties, will furnish drafts of all documents or proposed oral statements to the other Parties, provide the other Parties the opportunity to review and comment upon any such documents or statements and will not release or permit release of any such information without the consent of the other Parties, except to the extent required by applicable law or the rules of any securities exchange or automated quotation system on which its securities or those of any of its Affiliates are traded.

        Section 7.7   Conduct of Business.

        (a) The Clorox Parties agree that prior to the Closing Date, without the prior written consent of the P&G Partners, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, as may be expressly permitted or contemplated by this Agreement or as may be set forth in Section 7.7 of the Clorox Disclosure Schedule hereto, the Clorox Parties will cause the Glad Global Business:

against such risks and in at least the amounts as provided by the insurance policies currently maintained by the Clorox Parties with respect to the Glad Global Business to the extent reasonably available;

        (iii) not to sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of any business, assets, rights or properties of the Glad Global Business other than (A) sales of obsolete or worn-out equipment or other assets no longer used in the Glad Global Business not exceeding a value in excess of $[*   *   *] individually or $[*   *   *] in the aggregate, (B) sales of inventory in the ordinary course of business, (C) sales, transfers or other dispositions of assets or properties that will be replaced prior to the Closing with assets or properties of a comparable value or utility that will be attributed to the Glad Global Business or (D) sales, transfers or dispositions in the ordinary course of the Glad Global Business consistent with past practice and not exceeding a value in excess of $[*   *   *] individually or $[*   *   *] in the aggregate not otherwise included in the foregoing clauses (A) through (C); and

        (iv) not to take any action for which the consent of the P&G Partners would be required after the Closing Date pursuant to Section 5.3(a) hereof.

        (b)  Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 7.7(a), the Parties agree that cash and cash equivalents (excluding petty cash) of the Glad Global Business prior to Closing will be a Clorox Excluded Asset pursuant to the provisions of Section 2.2(b) hereof. The Clorox Parties will have the right to remove any such cash or cash equivalents (excluding petty cash) from the Glad Global Business prior to the Closing, subject to the representation and warranty contained in Section 4.2(a)(ii) hereof.

        (c)  The P&G Parties agree that prior to the Closing Date, without the prior written consent of Clorox, the P&G Parties will not sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of (i) any P&G Equipment or (ii) the Forceflex Technology or Impress Technology (in each case as such terms are defined in the P&G License Agreement) to be licensed to the Clorox Parties pursuant to the P&G License Agreement.

        The Parties have agreed that to the extent the Glad Global Business expands to establish operations in any country other than the United States, Canada, Australia New Zealand, China, Philippines, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, Korea and South Africa (a “New Country”), the Parties will enter a relationship in such New Country, which relationship will, at the election of the Clorox Partners, either (a) have a structure and be on terms substantially similar to those under the JV Sublicense Agreements and the Glad License Agreements for the International Licensees or (b) have the structure and be on the terms set forth on Exhibit G hereto, in each case unless the Parties mutually determine that such structure would result in material adverse tax consequences to P&G or Clorox, in which case P&G and Clorox will negotiate in good faith to modify the structure as necessary to avoid such adverse tax consequences. The Parties do not intend for the

provisions of this Section 7.8 to specify any particular operational structure to be used in any New Country or to set in advance compensation to be received by P&G or its Affiliates in connection with any services that may be provided by P&G or its Affiliates as a service provider to the operations in such New Country. The Parties agree to use all [*   *   *] efforts and to negotiate in good faith to complete the documentation necessary to implement any such relationship. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 7.8, the Parties are unable to agree upon the implementation of any such relationship in any country, such failure will not prevent the Glad Global Business from entering into operation in the country in question.

        Section 7.9   Sublicenses of P&G Intellectual Property.

        (a) To the extent The Glad Products Company or its Affiliates, on behalf of the Joint Venture, sublicenses any of the Intellectual Property licensed to it by P&G Sub under the P&G License Agreement to any Affiliate of Clorox, each of The Glad Products Company and the other Clorox Parties agree as follows during the term of any such sublicense:

        (b) P&G will have the right [*   *   *] year, upon reasonable notice to The Glad Products Company, to have an independent public accounting firm review and audit the books, records and accounts of the Glad Licensed Business, at P&G’s expense.

        Section 10.2   Indemnification by P&G Partners.

        From and after the Closing Date, the P&G Partners will indemnify and hold harmless each of the Clorox Partners and their respective Affiliates, and the respective directors, officers, employees and agents of any of the foregoing, and any of the heirs, executors, successors and assigns of any of the foregoing (collectively, the “Clorox Indemnified Parties” and together with the P&G Indemnified Parties, the “Indemnified Parties”) from and against any and all Losses and Expenses suffered or incurred by any such Clorox Indemnified Party arising from, relating to or otherwise in respect of, (a) any breach of, or inaccuracy in, any representation or warranty of the P&G Parties contained in this Agreement or in the certificate delivered by the P&G Parties pursuant to Section 8.2(a) of this Agreement, (b) any breach of any covenant or other agreement of the P&G Parties contained in this Agreement and (c) any Permitted Liens existing as of the Closing with respect to the P&G Equipment.

        Section 10.3   Third-Party Claims.

        If a claim by a third party is made against an Indemnified Party hereunder, and if such Indemnified Party intends to seek indemnity with respect thereto under this Article X, such Indemnified Party will promptly notify Clorox, in the case of a P&G Indemnified Party, or P&G, in the case of a Clorox Indemnified Party (such person to be notified, the “Indemnifying Party”) in writing of such claims setting forth such claims in reasonable detail, provided that failure of such Indemnified Party to give prompt notice as provided herein will not relieve the Indemnifying Party of any of its obligations hereunder, except to the extent that the Indemnifying Party is materially prejudiced by such failure. The Indemnifying Party will have twenty (20) days after receipt of such notice to undertake, through counsel of its own choosing, subject to the reasonable approval of such Indemnified Party, and at its own expense, the settlement or defense thereof, and the Indemnified Party will cooperate with it in connection therewith; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party may participate in such settlement or defense through counsel chosen by such Indemnified Party, provided that the fees and expenses of such counsel will be borne by such Indemnified Party. If the Indemnifying Party will assume the defense of a claim, it will not settle such claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, (a) unless such settlement includes as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant of a release of the Indemnified Party from all Liability with respect to such claim or (b) if such settlement involves the imposition of equitable remedies or the imposition of any material obligations on such Indemnified Party other than financial obligations for which such Indemnified Party will be indemnified hereunder. If the Indemnifying Party will assume the defense of a claim, the fees of any separate counsel retained by the Indemnified Party will be borne by such Indemnified Party unless there exists a conflict between them as to their respective legal defenses (other than one that is of a monetary nature), in which case the Indemnified Party will be entitled to retain separate counsel, the reasonable fees and expenses of which will be reimbursed by the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party does not notify the Indemnified Party within twenty (20) days after the receipt of the Indemnified Party’s notice of a claim of indemnity hereunder that it elects to undertake the defense thereof, the Indemnified Party will have the right to contest, settle or compromise the claim but will not thereby waive any right to indemnity therefor pursuant to this Agreement. The indemnification provisions set forth in this Article X are the sole and exclusive means of recovery of money damages with respect to the matters covered herein, except for fraud.

        Section 10.4   Limitation on Losses and Expenses

        Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Indemnifying Party will be liable for any punitive damages pursuant to this Agreement or any of the Related Agreements (it being understood that any punitive damages paid by any Indemnified Party to any third party will be considered direct damages not subject to this Section 10.4).

        Section 11.7   Governing Law.

        This Agreement will be construed in accordance with, and the rights of the Parties will be governed by, the laws of the State of New York.

        Section 11.8   Arbitration.

        (a) The Parties will attempt in good faith to resolve through negotiation any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement. Either Clorox or the P&G Partners may initiate negotiations on behalf of the Clorox Partners or the P&G Partners, as the case may be, by providing written notice in letter form to the other Party, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief requested. The recipient of such notice will respond in writing within five days with a statement of its position on and recommended solution to the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved by this exchange of correspondence, then representatives of each of Clorox and the P&G Partners with full settlement authority will meet at a mutually agreeable time and place within ten (10) days of the date of the initial notice in order to exchange relevant information and perspectives, and to attempt to resolve the dispute. If the dispute is not resolved by these negotiations, the matter will be submitted to JAMS, or its successor, for mediation.

        (b) Either Clorox or the P&G Partners may commence mediation on behalf of the Clorox Partners or the P&G Partners, as the case may be, by providing to JAMS and the other Party a written request for mediation, setting forth the subject of the dispute and the relief requested. The Parties will cooperate with JAMS and with one another in selecting a mediator from JAMS’ panel of neutrals, and in scheduling the mediation proceedings. The Parties covenant that they will participate in the mediation in good faith, and that Clorox, on the one hand, and the P&G Partners, on the other hand, will share equally in its costs. All offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the mediation by any of the Parties, their agents, employees, experts and attorneys, and by the mediator or any JAMS employees, are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any arbitration or other proceeding involving the Parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable will not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the mediation. Either Clorox or the P&G Partners may initiate arbitration on behalf of the Clorox Partners or the P&G Partners, as the case may be, with respect to the matters submitted to mediation by filing a written demand for arbitration at any time following the initial mediation session or 45 days after the date of filing the written request for mediation, whichever occurs first. The mediation may continue after the commencement of arbitration if the Parties so desire. Unless otherwise agreed by the Parties, the mediator will be disqualified from serving as arbitrator in the case. The provisions of this Section 11.8 may be enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction, and the Party seeking enforcement will be entitled to an award of all costs, fees and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, to be paid by the Party against whom enforcement is ordered.

        (c) Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this Agreement to arbitrate, which is not resolved through negotiation or mediation, will be determined by arbitration conducted in Oakland, CA,

before a sole arbitrator based in the state of New York, in accordance with the laws of the State of New York for agreements made in and to be performed in that State. The arbitration will be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures unless Clorox and the P&G Partners agree to use its Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator’s decision and award with respect to the dispute referred to will be final and binding on the Parties and may be entered in any court with jurisdiction, and the Parties will abide by such decision and award.

        (d) The arbitrator will, in its award, allocate all of the costs of the arbitration (and the mediation, if applicable), including the fees of the arbitrator and the reasonable attorneys’ fees of the prevailing Party, against the Party who did not prevail, if any.

        Section 11.9   Injunctive Relief.

        Each of the Parties acknowledges and agrees that pending the outcome of any arbitration proceeding pursuant to Section 11.8, each of the Parties will be entitled to an injunction, restraining order or other equitable relief to prevent breaches of the provisions of this Agreement and the Related Agreements in any court of competent jurisdiction solely for the purpose of maintaining the status quo, in addition to any other remedy to which they may be entitled pursuant to the terms hereof.

        Section 11.10   Expenses.

        Except as set forth in this Agreement and the Related Agreements, whether or not the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are consummated, all legal and other costs and expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement and the Related Agreements and the transactions contemplated hereby will be paid by the Party incurring such costs.

CLOROX CORPORATE SERVICES

1.

 

Clorox Services and Personnel. Clorox will provide to the Glad Global Business payroll, product supply, project management, human resource services, information systems services, facilities services, treasury, tax, financial system and accounting services, legal services and other corporate services currently provided by Clorox, which are referred to as “Clorox Services” for purposes of this Agreement.  Clorox will provide or will cause to be provided to the Glad Global Business the Clorox Services at such levels as the Glad Global Business may require from time to time.  The Board will review on an annual basis the costs and quality of the Clorox Services and determine whether it continues to be in the best interest of the Glad Global Business for Clorox to continue to provide all such services.  The Glad Leadership Team will monitor the Clorox Services on an ongoing basis and will report to the Board on an annual basis as to the results of its review of the Clorox Services and will provide the Board with any recommendations for changes in the Clorox Services.  The Board will promptly act on any such recommendation by the Glad Leadership Team.

 

 

 

 

2.

 

Fees for Clorox Services. The fees Clorox will allocate to the Glad Global Business for the Clorox Services (the “Service Fees”) shall be consistent with the JV Accounting Principles and will include apportioned amounts for facilities leases and supplies, salaries, bonuses and benefits (including pension plan costs) of Clorox employees who perform the Clorox Services, operating supplies, utilities, telephone, computers and/or other expenses as appropriate.  Clorox and the Glad Global Business will use [*   *   *] efforts to identify Clorox Services that can be assumed by the Glad Global Business and no longer provided by Clorox corporate (“Assumed Services”).  In addition, if the Glad Global Business can obtain any Clorox Service from a third party at [*   *   *] than the allocated cost of Clorox providing such Clorox Service, it is contemplated that the Glad Global Business will outsource such service and it will no longer be provided by Clorox corporate (“Outsourced Services” and, together with the Assumed Services, the “Push Down Services”).  To the extent a Clorox Service becomes a Push Down Service in any calendar year, the Service Fee for such year will be reduced by an amount (the “Push Down Credit”) equal to what the cost of providing such Clorox Service for that remainder of the calendar year (i.e. after the push down occurs) would have been based on the cost of providing such Clorox Service during the same period of the prior calendar year (determined in accordance with the JV Accounting Principles).  To the extent that the Board of the Joint Venture unanimously determines to obtain any additional corporate services from Clorox (“Incremental Services”) in any calendar year, the Service Fee for such year will be increased by an amount (the “Supplemental Amount”) equal to the cost of providing such Incremental Services (which will thereafter be deemed Clorox Services) for the remainder of that calendar year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(a)

 

The Base Service Fee allocated to the Glad Global Business for calendar year 2003 (the “2003 Base Service Fee”) will equal [*   *   *]% of the aggregate net sales of the Glad Global Business for calendar year 2002, as adjusted for the change in the Consumer Price Index during calendar year 2002 (i.e. if net sales in 2002 were $[*   *   *] million and the Consumer Price Index increased by [*   *   *]%, the 2003 Base Service Fee would equal $[*   *   *]).  The actual

.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Service Fee payable for 2003 will equal the 2003 Base Services Fee [*   *   *] the Push Down Credit for 2003 [*   *   *] the Supplemental Amount for 2003, if any

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(b)

 

The base Service Fee (the “Base Service Fee”) allocated to the Glad Global Business for each calendar year (the “Relevant Year”) commencing in 2004 will equal the Service Fee actually paid in the immediately preceding calendar year [*   *   *] the Push Down Adjustment for the immediate preceding calendar year [*   *   *] the Incremental Services Adjustment for the immediately preceding calendar year, as adjusted for the change in the Consumer Price Index during the immediately preceding calendar year (i.e. if the 2003 Service Fee was $[*   *   *], the Push Down Adjustment for 2003 was $[*   *   *], the Incremental Services Adjustment was zero and the Consumer Price Index increased by [*   *   *]% the Base Service Fee would equal $[*   *   *]).  The actual Service Fee payable for the Relevant Year will equal the Base Service Fee for the Relevant Year [*   *   *] the Push Down Credit for the Relevant Year [*   *   *] the Supplemental Amount for the Relevant Year, subject to the Cap and Floor described below.

 

 

 

 

 

          The “Push Down Adjustment” for any calendar year will equal the sum of (x) the amount that the Push Down Credit would have been in such year had all Clorox Services that became Push Down Services in that calendar year become Push Down Services on the first day of that calendar year [*   *   *] (y) the actual Push Down Credit for that calendar year.  The “Incremental Services Adjustment” for any calendar year will equal the sum of (A) the amount that the Supplemental Amount would have been in such year had all services that became Incremental Services in that calendar year become Incremental Services on the first day of that calendar year [*   *   *] (B) the actual Supplemental Amount for that calendar year.

 

 

 

(c)

 

In each calendar year beginning in 2004, the Services Fee will not be less than the Floor Amount (as defined below) for that calendar year of the aggregate net sales of the Clorox Global Business the immediately preceding calendar year nor greater than the Cap Amount (as defined below) for that calendar year of the aggregate net sales of the Clorox Global Business the immediately preceding calendar year.  The Floor Amount will initially equal [*   *   *]% and the Cap Amount will initially equal [*   *   *]%.  Beginning in 2004 the Floor Amount and the Cap Amount will be subject to adjustment annually as follows:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(i)

 

At such time as the sum of all Push Down Credits [*   *   *] all Push Down Adjustments [*   *   *] all Supplemental Amounts [*   *   *] all Incremental Services Adjustments occurring in or prior to a specific calendar year (the “Base Year”) exceeds [*   *   *]% of the aggregate net sales of the Glad Global Business in the Base Year (the percentage amount by which they exceed [*   *   *]% is referred to as the “Initial Adjustment Amount”), the Floor Amount and the Cap Amount for the immediately succeeding calendar year will be reduced by the Initial Adjustment Amount.  The Floor Amount and the Cap Amount will remain at such lower levels unless and until further adjusted pursuant to this paragraph (c).

(ii)

 

To the extent that any additional Push Down Services are implemented after the Base Year (each year in which any such additional Push Down Service is implemented is referred to herein as an “Adjustment Year”), then the Floor Amount and the Cap Amount for the immediately succeeding year will be reduced by the percent of the aggregate net sales of the Glad Global Business in the Adjustment Year represented by the sum of the Push Down Credit for such Adjustment Year plus the Push Down Adjustment for such Adjustment Year, provided that the Floor Amount and the Cap Amount shall in no event be less than [*   *   *].  The Floor Amount and the Cap Amount will remain at such lower levels unless and until further adjusted pursuant to this paragraph (c).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(iii)

 

To the extent that the Board of the Joint Venture unanimously determines to obtain any Incremental Services after the Base Year (each year in which any such additional Incremental Services are first obtained is referred to herein as a “Supplemental Adjustment Year”), then the Floor Amount and the Cap Amount for the immediately succeeding year will be increased by the percent of the aggregate net sales of the Glad Global Business in the Supplemental Adjustment Year represented by the sum of the Supplemental Amount for such Supplemental Adjustment  Year plus the Incremental Services Adjustment for such Adjustment Year.  The Floor Amount and the Cap Amount will remain at such increased levels unless and until further adjusted pursuant to this paragraph (c).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(d)

The aggregate Push Down Credits for 2003 and 2004 plus the aggregate Push Down Adjustments for 2003 and 2004 will equal at least $[*   *   *].

 

 

 

 

 

 

(e)

The “Consumer Price Index” means the Consumer Price Index of Urban Consumers, West Region All Items (base period 1982-1984=100), as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor or, if such index is no longer published or the method of computation thereof is substantially modified, an alternative index of similar weighting and geographic focus selected by the Board. 

 

 

 

 

3.

 

Payments.  All Service Fees allocated to the Joint Venture pursuant to this Exhibit F shall be settled quarterly in arrears by the appropriate accounting entries.  All Service Fees allocated to the Joint Venture hereunder will be expenses attributable to the Joint Venture in accordance with the Joint Venture Accounting Principles. 

 

 

 

4.

 

Outsourcing. Any of the Clorox Services may be terminated by the Board at any time during the Term of the Joint Venture and thereby become Outsourced Services, upon 180 days prior written notice to Clorox specifying the Clorox Services to be terminated and the date of such termination, in the event the Board determines (i) that the Glad Global Business can obtain such services from a third party at a lower cost to the Glad Global Business or (ii) that it is otherwise in the best interest of the Glad Business to discontinue such Clorox Services.  Clorox’s actual direct costs incurred in connection with the termination of any Clorox Services that become Outsourced Services will be attributed to the Glad Global Business.

Relationship of the Parties.  All persons employed by Clorox or its affiliates in the performance of the Clorox Services shall be the sole responsibility of Clorox and its affiliates and P&G shall have no obligation or responsibility with respect thereto except as expressly provided herein.  The persons assigned by Clorox to provide the Clorox Services shall at all times remain employees of Clorox or its Affiliates, as applicable, and shall not, for any purposes, be or be deemed to be employees of any of P&G and P&G shall have no obligation or responsibility with respect thereto, including responsibility for payment of compensation, benefits, insurance and taxes related to such persons except as expressly provided herein.

EXHIBIT G

TERMS OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONSHIPS

 

 

 

 

 

Structure

 

New Entity Through US Joint Venture.  In those countries in which the Glad business does not currently operate, the Clorox Parties will form an entity in the local country, which may be either a corporation or pass-through entity for United States tax purposes.  The newly formed entity will be an asset deemed attributed to the United States Joint Venture.   If the local entity is treated as a corporation for United States tax purposes, P&G will be directly issued one share of special voting stock equal to 10% of the vote in such entity, provided that such share shall not carry any dissenter’s appraisal or similar rights, and that with respect to any matter that requires a vote or consent of the shareholders of such corporation, P&G shall agree to vote such shares in the same manner that Clorox votes with respect to all matters other than those matters with respect to which P&G has a veto right as described below under “Governance – P&G Veto”.

 

 

 

 

 

Contribution.  The Clorox Parties, on behalf of the joint venture, will contribute or license Intellectual Property rights associated with the Glad business to the newly formed entity and will contribute cash attributable to the joint venture to fund start-up costs.  Cash distributions from the foreign entity to the Clorox Parties and proceeds from the sale of an interest in such entity received by the Clorox Parties will be distributed to the parties under the terms of the JV Agreement. 

 

 

 

 

 

Distributions.  The foreign entity will distribute or pay Distributable Cash Flow (either by distributions or royalty payments) of such entity to the Clorox Parties on an annual basis or, in the event the net profits of the business in the applicable jurisdiction exceed $[*   *   *] per annum, on a quarterly basis.  For the avoidance of doubt, Distributable Cash Flow will be reduced by applicable foreign income and other taxes. Also, for the avoidance of doubt, P&G will be entitled to its share of Section 902 (income) and/or Section 901 (withholding) tax credits with respect to such Distributable Cash Flow. 

 

 

 

Governance

 

International Board.  The international operations of the joint venture will be governed by a board of managers (the “International Board”) that will have authority to make decisions with respect to the operations in all countries other than the United States in the same manner as the Board with respect to the United States operations. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Composition.  The International Board will consist of the same members as the Board for the United States business, with the same board observers being appointed by P&G.

2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meeting and Procedures.  Regular meetings of the International Board will be scheduled to occur immediately before or after the United States Board meetings.  The terms with respect to the governance of the international operation will be substantially identical to the Joint Venture agreement for the United States, including with respect to meeting notice, voting, quorum, proxies and other similar procedural requirements, disclosure of information, expense reimbursement and other matters addressed in Sections 5.1 and 5.2 of the JV Agreement with respect to the Board in the United States. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other Board Approvals.  The Board shall review and approve the budget, business plan and other actions to be taken by the international business in the same manner as detailed in Section 5.4 and 5.5 of the JV Agreement with respect to the United States operations. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

P&G Veto.  P&G will have the same veto rights with respect to international operations as it does in the United States (subject to the same dollar and other thresholds).  Vetoes will be subject to the same resolution procedure as provided in Section 5.3 of the JV Agreement.

 

 

 

 

 

Local Governance.  The general managers of the Glad business in each country outside of the United States will report to the International Board.  To the extent required by local law, local partnership entities may have a board or directors or other similar governing body in addition to the International Board, but no such local board or governing body shall have the authority to take any action for which approval of the International Board or P&G is required prior to such approval being obtained.

 

 

 

Transfer

 

Transfer Restrictions.  The interests of the parties in the local partnership and license agreements described above will be subject to the same restrictions on transfer as set forth in the JV Agreement.

 

 

 

 

 

Tag-Along and Drag-Along.  Internationally, the P&G affiliate will have the same tag-along rights in each country on equivalent terms as it has with respect to the Joint Venture in the United States.  The Clorox affiliate will also have equivalent drag-along rights in each country, including with respect to any sale of the Glad business in the relevant country that is not part of the sale of the entire Glad business.

EXHIBIT H

Joint Venture Accounting Principles

 

 

 

 

 

General Approach

 

1.

Create an accounting framework that to the extent possible is simple, sustainable and accurate.

 

2.

Start with Clorox’s GAAP financial statements for each of Clorox and the relevant subsidiaries as a basis for preparing the pro-forma financial statements for the Glad Global Business in each country.

 

3.

Consistent application of Clorox and Glad Global Business accounting policies, principles, and processes.

 

 

 

a.

Accounting Principles.  The accounting principles of Clorox and the Glad Global Business will be the same in many respects, but to the extent they differ these Joint Venture Accounting Principles will govern.  Any changes to the accounting principles of the Glad Global Business will be subject to P&G’s consent rights pursuant to Sections 5.3(a) and 9.1(f) of this Agreement, and any other provisions of this Agreement (or this Exhibit) requiring the consent of P&G.  The initial accounting principles of the Glad Global Business will be the same as those of Clorox and its subsidiaries, except with respect to Clorox corporate overhead allocations and as provided in this Exhibit H. 

 

 

 

b.

Accounting Policies.  The accounting policies for the Glad Global Business can be changed as required by GAAP, the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission or statements of the Financial Standards Accounting Board.  The accounting policies can also be changed in connection with changes to Clorox’s overall accounting policies, but in all cases subject to P&G’s consent rights pursuant to Sections 5.3(a) and 9.1(f) of this Agreement and any other provisions of this Agreement (or this Exhibit) requiring the consent of P&G.

 

 

 

 

 

Direct Costs and Allocated Costs

 

4.

The PWC report, the source documents referenced in the PWC report and the other materials underlying the PWC Report provide the basis for how indirect costs were allocated and direct costs were identified as of June 30, 2002.  These allocations and identifications will be used during the Term, and changes to those allocations and identifications may only be made consistent with this Exhibit and with Exhibit F (Clorox Services).

 

5.

To the extent any costs that are attributable to the Glad Global Business on an allocated basis under Exhibit F are subsequently identified as direct costs attributable to the Glad Global Business, if they can be charged 100% to the Glad Global Business, Clorox will cause them to be directly charged to the Glad Global Business to the extent reasonably practicable.

 

6.

To the extent costs attributable to the Glad Global Business cannot be directly identified for the Glad Global Business they will be allocated on mutually agreed upon basis and in accordance with this Exhibit and with Exhibit F, where applicable.

017915-0003-02542-PaloAlto.2038370.5
THE PORTIONS OF THIS EXHIBIT IDENTIFIED BY THE SYMBOL “[* * *]” HAVE BEEN OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUEST.


 

 

 

 

 

 

7.

The Glad Global Business will continuously work to improve the accuracy of any allocated costs attributed to the Glad Global Business on an on-going basis.

 

8.

Capital spending on direct property, plant and equipment (e.g. used 100% by the Glad Global Business) will be direct costs of the Glad Global Business.  Capital spending on shared manufacturing, distribution and product development assets used in the Glad Global Business will be shared pro rata based upon an allocation process to be mutually agreed to by Clorox and P&G.  If the Parties can not agree on such process the matter will be subject to Escalation and, if not resolved by Escalation, by arbitration as to the appropriate pro rata allocation.

 

 

 

Reviews and Audits

 

9.

All allocations in all geographies for all allocated costs (i.e. those costs that cannot be solely attributed to the Glad Global Business) will be reviewed and documented annually to facilitate consistency and disclosure.

 

10.

Clorox’s internal audit function will review the Glad Global Business’ financials and processes in a manner and frequency consistent with Clorox internal audit procedures.  For the United States Glad Business and for each country where there is a Glad Global Business with annual revenues in excess of the greater of (x) U.S. $[*   *   *] or (y) [*   *   *]% of the Glad Global Business’s aggregate annual revenue (initially, Canada and Australia), these audits will be performed at least once every 24 months, and these reports will be shared with the Board. 

 

 

 

Cash Funding Preferences

 

11.

The Glad Global Business may fund its own global cash requirements internally (which may require loans between Glad businesses in different countries) before seeking a Parent Loan, and the Parties expect that it will generally seek to fund such amounts internally rather than seeking a Parent Loan.

 

 

 

Balance Sheet Preparation

 

12.

For each country, assets and liabilities directly attributable to the Glad Global Business will be included on the pro-forma balance sheet of the Glad Global Business.

 

 

 

a.

Shared Assets and Liabilities other than Fixed Assets.  Where assets and liabilities other than Fixed Assets are not solely attributable to the Glad Global Business but are shared with other Clorox businesses in the country, they will be allocated on a fair share basis to the Glad Global Business.

 

 

 

b.

Shared Fixed Assets.  Any fixed asset shared with a Clorox business other than the Glad Global Business will not be allocated to the Glad Global Business unless otherwise mutually agreed.
