{007610000-00123469; 1 }

2.5  
Adjustments to Contract Price
 
The Contract Price has been agreed upon based on certain estimations and projections of development and construction costs and revenues from power production which have been shared among the parties.  Accordingly, the Contract Price is subject to adjustment, upwards or downwards, as appropriate, based on the following parameters:
 
(a)  
Installed Capacity.   The Contract Price reflects total installed capacity of 22,500 peak kW DC, comprised of twelve (12) Projects, with each Project rated at an average of 1,875 peak kW DC. The Contract Price will be adjusted downward by $0.39/peak W DC for each watt DC of total installed capacity less than 22,500,000 peak W DC.
 
Additionally, the Contract Price will be adjusted downward by Development Expenses which are not refunded to any Project because that particular Project cannot achieve commercial operation by its Initial Operation Deadline.  For Development Expenses that were spent on multiple Projects, the downward adjustment shall be on a pro rata basis. Potentially refundable Development Expenses include those portions of interconnection financial security postings released by SCE on withdrawal of an Interconnection Request or termination of a Generator Interconnection Agreement. Where the Contract Price is adjusted downward because of a Project’s failure to achieve commercial operation by the Initial Operation Deadline, the assets in relation to the Project, shall be transferred unencumbered to Coronus Parent, unless those assets are used by other Projects that can or do achieve commercial operation before the Initial Operation Deadline.
 
(b) 
Remaining Development Expense Budget.  The agreed upon Remaining Development Expense Budget is set forth on Schedule “D”.  In the event the remaining Development Expenses funded by Redwood after the Closing Date exceed the aggregate amount of Remaining Development Expense Budget set forth on Schedule “D”, there shall be an equivalent negative adjustment to the Contract Price. In the event the remaining Development Expenses funded by Redwood after the Closing Date are less than the Remaining Development Expense Budget set forth on Schedule “D”, subject to the adjustment for a reduction in installed capacity below 22,500 peak kW DC per Section 2.5 (a) Installed Capacity, there shall be an equivalent positive upward adjustment to the Contract Price. The Development Expenses are restricted to the definition on Schedule “C”.
 
(c) 
Interconnection Refund.   If the actual Interconnection Refund amounts payable from SCE to the applicable Projects are lower than the amounts set forth in Schedule “E”,
 

{007610000-00123469; 1 }
 
 

 

then the Contract Price will be adjusted downward accordingly.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Contract Price reflects SCE applying Interconnection Refunds for the Discarded Projects towards the next interconnection financial security or ITCC postings as identified on Schedule “D”, and will otherwise be subject to the adjustment set forth in Section 2.5 (e) Interconnection Refund Delay.
 
(d)   
Premature Payments.  If Redwood is required to fund a) the third and final postings of the interconnection financial security to SCE for any of the Projects or b) any further payments associated with land acquisition prior to Construction Financial Close, (“Premature Payments”), the Contract Price shall be adjusted downward using the product of (i) the amount of Redwood’s Premature Payments, multiplied by (ii) the number of days between the date of each premature payment and the related project Construction Financial Close, divided by; (iii)  365, and multiplied by (iv) a deemed cost of equity of twelve percent (12%) (“Cost of Development Equity”).
 
 
Interconnection Refund Delay.  If SCE does not apply the funds already paid to SCE for the Discarded Projects, which totals $1,005,800, as credit towards the next interconnection financial security and ITCC payments due to SCE in August, September and October 2013, as identified on Schedule “D”, then the Contract Price shall be adjusted downward using the product of (i) $1,005,800 multiplied by (ii) the number of days from the  execution date of this Agreement until when SCE refunds to Coronus, divided by (iii) 365, and multiplied by (iv) Cost of Development Equity.
 
(f)     
Third Party Compensation. If Coronus, Coronus Parent, Solar Krafte Utilities Inc., or an affiliate of any of these organizations receives any payment from any third party (i.e., not Coronus Parent, Clean Focus, Redwood or affiliates) associated with this transaction for the Projects and however characterized, the Contract Price will be reduced by an equivalent amount.
 
(g)   
Dissenters’ Rights.  The parties acknowledge that the legal obligation to fund any shareholder(s) exercising dissenter’s rights is Coronus Parent’s.  However, if there are any damages and legal costs associated with dissenters’ rights proceedings related to this Agreement or as a result of the approval by shareholders of Coronus Parent of this Agreement that Redwood, Owner or Clean Focus fund, whether due to Coronus Parent’s inability to fund such obligations within the time period required by law, to avoid lawsuits from dissenting shareholder(s), or for any other reason whatsoever, the Contract Price will be reduced by amount of such damages, dissenter’s rights payments and related costs.
 
(h)  
Coronus Energy Financials.  The Coronus Parent has represented that certain assets and liabilities (the "Coronus Closing Assets" and "Coronus Closing Liabilities", respectively) will be carried on the books of Coronus as of the Closing Date. The Coronus Closing Assets and Coronus Closing Liabilities are described on Schedule “I” hereto subject to the adjustments below (the "Coronus Energy Financials"). Unless expensed, if any of the Coronus Closing Assets are not carried on the books of Coronus as of the Closing Date, then the Contract Price shall be adjusted downward by the non-carried amount of the Coronus Closing Assets. If liabilities beyond the Coronus Closing Liabilities are carried on the books of Coronus as of the Closing Date, then the Contract Price shall be adjusted downward by the amount of the liabilities beyond the Coronus Closing Liabilities. In the event there is a taxable gain on the books of Coronus as of June 30, 2013,  the Contract Price shall be adjusted downward, reflecting the monetized amount of
 

{007610000-00123469; 1 }
 
 

 

the tax payable.  The Coronus Energy Financials in Schedule “I” shall be adjusted such that (i) there will be no cash in the checking account (account 1000); (ii) Coronus Parent will be responsible for all payment liabilities associated with the Newberry Springs land parcel (account 1520) and Twenty-Nine Palms North land parcel (account 1530), and these two land parcel assets, subject to any outstanding liabilities, now and forward looking, are the property of Coronus Parent; the current account with Coronus Parent (account 2600) will be $0; the accounts from accounts payable (account 2000) for Earthlight ($8,000), Vine Dahlen PLLC ($1,870), and the Franchise Tax Board ($12,800) shall be removed; and the accounts from accrued liabilities (account 2100) for the State of California shall be removed.
 
 
Limitation on Adjustment.   If Redwood fails to perform its obligations under this Agreement with respect to the timely funding of the required Development Expenses related to a particular Project or Projects, or delays constructing a Project or Projects due to delays in financing, provided that such failure is not due to a delay in the receipt of conditional use permits beyond the third and final posting of interconnection financial security, the only adjustment to the Contract Price for that particular Project or Projects shall be the downward adjustment per Section 2.5(a) related to Installed Capacity, not including the downward adjustment for non-reimbursable Development Expenses, and all other adjustments which would otherwise be justified for such Project or Projects are null and void and shall not be applied.  In addition, should such funding delay result in Redwood determining to abandon such Project or Projects due to a determination that the cause of such funding delay is not remediable and will result in the Project being economically unviable for Redwood, then Redwood shall convey such Project or Projects and related assets unencumbered to Coronus Parent and the Contract Price shall be adjusted solely to reflect the removal of the installed capacity of such Project or Projects.
 

 
2.6  
Break-up Fee and Immediate Default of CFFC Loan.
 
In the event the Closing is not approved by Coronus Parent’s shareholders at the Coronus Parent Annual & Special Meeting to be held on September 16, 2013, or such meeting time and place is extended, adjourned, otherwise rescheduled without a vote on the shareholders on this Agreement and the Transaction, Coronus Parent shall owe Redwood a break-up fee of $5,000,000 which is immediately due and payable.  In addition, the CFFC Loan will be amended on or prior to Closing to provide that if this  Agreement is not approved by the required percentage of Coronus Parent’s shareholders  at the Coronus Parent Annual & Special Meeting on  September 16, 2013, then CFFC Loan will be in immediate default, will become immediately due and payable, and Coronus Parent will confess judgment to the immediate exercise of remedies allowed with respect to the default of the CFFC Loan, including, without limitation, a declaration of foreclosure on the CREST PPA Parcels and the seizure of all assets of Coronus.
 
2.7  
Project Management and Development Services
 
Included within the Contract Price, Redwood is engaging Coronus Parent to provide certain development services to Redwood in connection with the development and construction of the Projects and project management during the development and construction period.  Coronus Parent acknowledges that Redwood will be the counterparty on each EPC Contract and will be in the role of General Contractor for the construction and development of the Projects for purposes of each EPC Contract.  Coronus Parent will provide Redwood those services listed on Schedule
 

{007610000-00123469; 1 }
 
 

 

“K” as specified and to the extent requested by Redwood.  All such services shall be provided in a good and workmanlike manner with the degree of skill and expertise expected from a firm and individuals with substantial expertise in the development and construction of facilities similar to the Projects.  To the extent there are established industry standards for the provision of such services, Coronus Parent will perform its services in conformance with such industry standards.
 
In the performance of the Project management and development services, Coronus Parent shall comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, and codes and all applicable orders and regulations applicable in the state and locality where the Projects are to be located.  In addition, Coronus Parent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that its services are performed in a time and manner that will ensure that (i) the development of each Project is completed and (ii) each Project is placed in service in compliance with all applicable laws, ordinances, and codes and all applicable orders and regulations, including, without limitation, those of SCE, applicable in the state and locality where the Projects are to be located and prior to any deadlines for completion established by such laws, ordinances, codes, orders and regulations, including, without limitation, those of SCE.
