TERMS &
CONDITIONS OF SALE

General Offer & Applicable Law

Products and services furnished by Expand Machinery (referred to herein as “Expand”, “we”, “us” and “our”) are sold to you (“Customer”) only on the terms and conditions stated herein. Notwithstanding any terms or conditions on Customer’s orders, our performance of any contract is expressly made conditional on Customer’s agreement to these terms and conditions of sale. We hereby reject any conflicting, different or additional terms and conditions proposed by Customer, unless otherwise specifically consented to in a writing signed by a duly authorized officer of Expand. To the extent that Customer attempts to place an order with us with open-ended terms (such as, but not limited to, without an end date that has been specifically agreed to in writing by an authorized representative of Expand or without a firm quantity commitment that has been specifically agreed to in writing by an authorized representative of Expand), such open-ended terms are specifically rejected by us and shall not be deemed to be part of any agreement or arrangement between us and Customer. Acceptance of any good or part thereof delivered by us or other assent by Customer to these Terms and Conditions of Sale (the “Terms”) shall constitute an agreement to all of the Terms, including, without limitation, our limitations of warranty and liability. All contracts for the sale of products shall be construed under and governed by the laws of the State of California. All orders shall be subject to our acceptance.

Prices & Specifications

All published prices and specifications are subject to change without notice. Unless otherwise specified in writing, all quotations are firm and expire thirty days after the date thereof. Unless otherwise stated, all prices, published or quoted, shall be exclusive of insurance and any and all taxes and transportation costs. All deposits are nonrefundable.

Transportation & Acceptance

We reserve the right to select the means of transportation and routing if we determine that Customer’s instructions are unsuitable. Customer shall be responsible for all risk of loss and/or damage commencing upon delivery of the products to the transportation company at the F.O.B. point. Title to any products shall pass to Customer when products are delivered to the transportation company at the F.O.B. point. All products must be inspected by Customer immediately upon receipt and any claims should be filed with the transportation company when there is evidence of shipping damage, even if the damage is concealed. The furnishing of a product to Customer shall constitute acceptance of that product by Customer unless written notice of defect or nonconformity is received by us within ten-days of receipt of the product at Customers designated receiving address. We may repair or, at our option, replace defective or nonconforming parts after receipt of such notice of defect or nonconformity.

Performance

Delivery dates and production figures are approximate and are based on the prompt receipt by us of all information and materials we deem necessary. Failure to deliver within the time estimated shall not be a breach of contract on our part, and in no event shall we be responsible for, or Customer be entitled to, any damages of any kind whatsoever arising out of or relating to any such delay in delivery. Without limiting the foregoing, acceptance of any good or part thereof by Customer shall constitute a waiver of any and all claims for delay. We shall be excused for delay in delivery and/or may suspend performance of any contract for the sale of products and services without liability to Customer in the event and to the extent of a “force majeure” which shall include, without limitation, strike, lockout, riot, act of civil or military authority, war, riot fire, flood, storm, explosion, act of God, act of Customer, pandemic, quarantine restriction, government order, delay in transportation, accident, or subcontractor or supplier delays or other events beyond our control. We reserve the right to substitute suitable products, when we determine in our sole discretion that such substitution is necessary due to a force majeure.

It is Customer’s sole responsibility to verify the electrical standards applicable to any machines purchased subject to these terms and conditions in their locality.

Past due balances shall be subject to a service charge of 1.5% per month or, if lower, the highest rate permitted under law. Partial shipments will be billed as made and payments therefore are subject to the above terms. All deposits are non-refundable.

To secure the full and prompt payment and performance of any and all debts, liabilities, agreements, covenants, warranties, obligations, and amounts from time to time now or hereafter owing by Customer to us and/or to any of our affiliates (the “Obligations”), Customer, in consideration of our obligations hereunder, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, grants to us, for ourselves and as agent for each and all of our affiliates (as the case may be, the “Secured Party) a continuing first priority security interest in and lien against any good or part thereof tendered for delivery to Customer by us or any of our affiliates, together with any and all additions, accessions and replacements thereto and proceeds and products thereof, whether now owned or existing or hereafter acquired or coming into existence (collectively, the “Collateral”). Customer agrees that any good or part thereof tendered for delivery by us or any of our affiliates will be used primarily for business purposes. Customer irrevocably appoints Secured Party as Customer’s attorney-in-fact with full authority to take any action and to prepare, execute and/or file any instrument that Secured Party deems necessary to carry out the terms herein and to perfect, and maintain the perfection of, Secured Party’s lien against and first priority security interest in the Collateral. Customer agrees to pay any and all costs and expenses in connection with the actions taken by Secured Party in connection with the preceding sentence, or to reimburse Secured Party for the same.

Arbitration

All disputes under any contract concerning products sold to Customer pursuant to these terms and conditions that are not otherwise resolved between Customer and us shall be resolved through mandatory and binding arbitration to be conducted in Los Angeles, California and in accordance with the Judicial Mediation Arbitration Service (““JAMS”) strictly in accordance with the terms of the contract, these terms and conditions and the substantive laws of the State of California, before a single arbitrator knowledgeable in the subject matter of the dispute selected in accordance with the procedures of the JAMS. The parties hereby consent to the service of process by registered mail, return receipt requested or by any other manner provided by the laws of the State of California and hereby waive any claims or defenses based on venue or forum non conveniens. Any related arbitration award will be final, conclusive and binding upon the parties and any judgment thereon may be entered and enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the extent reasonably practicable, all disputes of a similar subject matter relating to more than one contract between any one Customer and us concerning products sold pursuant to these terms and conditions shall be consolidated into a single arbitration proceeding.

Fire Waiver

Customer shall be solely responsible for the appropriate use of the products, including, without limitation, the machining of certain metals that use oil as the cutting and cooling medium which can provoke the ignition of oil mists, fillings, chips or parts of a machine which could cause considerable damage to a machine and its surroundings. By accepting the products sold hereunder, Customer assumes this risk and is hereby required to use best efforts to avoid such incidents and to limit any potential risk or exposure to life and property arising therefrom. For the avoidance of doubt, we are not responsible for any fires on the machine.

Assignment

Customer’s assignment of its order, or of any interest thereof or of any right of Customer against Expand or obligation of Customer to Expand, without our prior written consent, shall be void and shall entitle us to cancel such order and to obtain from Customer any applicable cancellation charges. We may assign our rights and/or obligations relating to Customer’s order(s) to Expand upon notice to, but without the necessity of the consent of, Customer.
