3.5.2    With respect to the obligations under this Section 3.5, Licensee shall not be required to submit any amounts received from a Third Party for the following:

(a)       Reimbursement or payment, in either case, of Licensee’s actual costs for research, development, and/or manufacturing activities performed by Licensee or its Affiliates corresponding directly to the research, development and/or manufacturing of Licensed Products pursuant to a specific agreement;

(b)       Any and all amounts paid to Licensee or its Affiliates by a Sublicensee as royalties on sales of Licensed Product sold by the Sublicensee under a sublicense agreement; and

(c)       Consideration received for the purchase of an equity interest in Licensee or its Affiliates at fair market value.

3.5.3    If Licensee or its Affiliates receives sublicense fees from Sublicensees or from any person or entity granted any option to obtain a sublicense under this Agreement in the form of non-cash consideration, then, at Licensor’s option, Licensee shall pay Licensor payments as required by this Section 3.5 (a) in the form of the non-cash consideration received by Licensee or its Affiliates or (b) a cash payment determined based on the fair market value of such non-cash consideration.  If Licensee or its Affiliate enters into any sublicense that is not an arm’s length transaction, fees due under this Section 3.5 will be calculated based on the fair market value of such transaction, at the time of the transaction, assuming an arm’s length transaction made in the ordinary course of business, as determined jointly by Licensor and Licensee based on transactions of a similar type and standard industry practice, if any.

3.5.4    To the extent Licensee receives payment from a Third Party relating to one or more of the milestone events set forth in the table in Section 3.3, then the amount of the payment made to Licensor under such Section 3.3 with respect to such milestone event shall not be deemed sublicense fees under this Section 3.5; instead, the amounts due under this Section 3.5 shall be calculated by applying the applicable sublicense fee rate set forth in Section 3.5.1 above to the sublicense fees received by Licensee from such Third Party after deducting the amount of the payment under Section 3.3.
