WHEREAS, the Parties have entered into the Amended and Restated Joint Venture Agreement, dated as of January 31, 2003 as amended by Amendment No. 1 entered into as of October 15, 2010 (as so amended, the “JV Agreement”); capitalized terms used but not defined herein will have the same meaning as ascribed to such terms in the JV Agreement;

WHEREAS, Section 6.3(a) of the JV Agreement provides that the Term of the Joint Venture may be extended beyond the twenty-year anniversary of the Closing Date (which such anniversary is January 31, 2023) if either the P&G Partners or Clorox delivers written notice to the other not less than five (5) years prior to the end of the Initial Term, and the Party receiving the notice agrees to such extension; and

WHEREAS, the Parties wish to extend the Initial Term, and to amend the JV Agreement in order to do so, as further described herein.

NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties agree as follows:

1.
Section 6.3(a) of the JV Agreement is hereby deleted and replaced in its entirety with the following:
