Each Party shall reasonably cooperate and exercise reasonable efforts at its own expense to support the other Party in obtaining any necessary licenses or authorizations required to perform its obligations under this Agreement. Reasonable cooperation shall include providing reasonably necessary documentation, including import, end-user and retransfer certificates. The Party providing Items or services under this Agreement shall, upon request, notify the other Party of the Items or services’ export classification (e.g. the Export Control Classification Numbers or U.S. Munitions List (USML) category and subcategory) as well as the export classification of any components or parts thereof if they are different from the export classification of the Item at issue. The Parties acknowledge that this representation means that an official capable of binding the Party providing such Items or services knows or has otherwise determined the proper export classification. Each Party agrees to reasonably cooperate with the other in providing, upon request of the other Party, documentation or other information that supports or confirms this representation.
(c)In addition, each Party shall (i) comply with all applicable country laws relating to anti-corruption or anti-bribery, including but not limited to legislation implementing the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development “Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions” (the “OECD Convention”) or other anti-corruption/anti-bribery convention; (ii) comply with the requirements of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as amended (15 U.S.C. §§78dd-1, et, seq.)

13.5Governing Law. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER SHALL IN ALL RESPECTS BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ITS RULES ON CONFLICTS OF LAWS. The U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply to this Agreement or any Purchase Order.
13.6Consent to Jurisdiction. Subject to Section 13.8, each Party hereby irrevocably consents and agrees to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of competent jurisdiction located in the State of New York, Borough of Manhattan, USA, and any appellate courts therefrom, for the adjudication of any claim, complaint, legal action or proceeding brought under this Agreement, and each of the Parties hereby (a) accepts the jurisdiction of the foregoing courts, (b) irrevocably agrees to be bound by any final judgment (after any appeal) of any such court, and (c) irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venues of any suit, action or proceedings with respect hereto brought in any such court, and further irrevocably waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any claim that any such suit, action or proceedings brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. Each of the Parties agrees that a final judgment (after any appeal) in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in any other jurisdiction by suit on the judgment or in any other manner to the extent provided by law.
13.7Waiver of Jury Trial. THE PARTIES HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT THAT THEY MAY HAVE TO TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION, OR IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY BASED UPON OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF THE OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING
WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTY HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.
(a)Dispute Resolution Objective. Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement and except for any claims for equitable relief, all Disputes will be subject to this Section 13.8. Either Party may initiate the dispute resolution procedure of this Section 13.8 by giving the other Party written notice in accordance with the terms of Section 13.4 of any dispute (“Notice of Dispute”).
(b)Negotiation and Mediation. Within ten (10) days of a Notice of Dispute provided to a Party in accordance with Section 13.4, senior executives of each Party will meet in person, or by teleconference, at a mutually agreeable time and place, and thereafter as often as they reasonably deem necessary, to attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute. If the Dispute is not resolved within ten (10) days following the Notice of Dispute, the Parties will submit the Dispute to mediation before a mutually agreed mediator from Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (“JAMS”) or its successor, to be scheduled within ten (10) days. All negotiations pursuant to this Section 13.8 are confidential and are deemed compromise and settlement negotiations for the purposes of applicable rules of evidence. Each Party will bear its own costs with respect to any mediation, and the other costs of the mediation will be shared equally between the Parties.
(c)Arbitration. In the event the Parties are unable to resolve any dispute by negotiations or mediation as set forth in Section 13.8(b), the Parties will submit the Dispute to binding arbitration before a mutually agreed arbitrator from JAMS or its successor. If the Parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within five (5) days after the commencement of the arbitration, each Party will select an arbitrator, who is not employed by or a consultant to either Party, and the two selected arbitrators will select a third arbitrator, who is not employed by or a consultant to either Party. Any arbitrator chosen hereunder will have reasonable education and training relevant to the Dispute. The arbitration will be held in accordance with the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The location of the arbitration will be in the State of New York, Borough of Manhattan. The decision of the arbitrator will be binding on the Parties and will be final and non-appealable. Any decision by the arbitrator(s) will not be interpreted as an admission against interest of any Party and will not be admissible as evidence in any subsequent court action with a third party. The prevailing Party in any arbitration will be entitled to an award of all costs, fees and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, with respect to the matters submitted to the arbitration once the arbitrator reaches a decision.
(d)No Court Proceedings. Unless otherwise provided elsewhere in this Agreement, no Party may institute any court proceedings concerning any Dispute. The dispute resolution procedure of this Section 13.8 is the sole remedy, unless otherwise provided elsewhere in this Agreement, for resolving Disputes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Parties may initiate court proceedings in a court of competent jurisdiction (i) to enforce any arbitration award between the Parties, or (ii) for claims for equitable relief. The Party seeking enforcement of an arbitration award will be entitled to an award of all costs, fees and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, to be paid by the Party against whom enforcement is ordered.
(a)Assignment. Other than as set forth in this Section 13.9, neither Party may assign, delegate, or otherwise transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any third party without the prior written consent of the other Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, TOYOTA may assign or delegate all or a portion of its rights and obligations hereunder to an Affiliate with, in the case of assignment, prior written notice to Joby Aero. Any purported assignment of this Agreement in violation of this Section 13.9 shall be null and void. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall be binding upon, and inure to the benefit of, the Parties and their respective successors and assigns.
(b)Subcontracting. TOYOTA may engage one or more subcontractors in the manufacture and supply of the Products subject to the following:
(i)TOYOTA shall maintain complete and accurate records regarding all subcontracted items and/or processes. TOYOTA’s use of subcontractors shall comply with TOYOTA’s quality assurance system approval for said subcontractors.
(ii)No subcontracting by TOYOTA shall relieve TOYOTA of its obligation under the applicable Confirmed Purchase Order. Utilization of a Joby Aero-approved source does not constitute a waiver of TOYOTA’s responsibility to meet all specification requirements.
(iii)TOYOTA shall use reasonable efforts to include as part of its subcontracts those elements of this Agreement that protect Joby Aero’s rights including but not limited to all quality provisions. In addition, TOYOTA shall provide to its subcontractors sufficient information to document clearly that the work being performed by TOYOTA’s subcontractor is to facilitate performance under this Agreement or any Confirmed Purchase Order. Sufficient information may include but is not limited to Confirmed Purchase Order number.
13.10Independent Contractor. Each Party is an independent contractor and is not a partner, agent or employee of the other Party. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as constituting a joint venture or partnership between TOYOTA and Joby Aero. Both Parties recognize the commercial nature of this Agreement and neither Party will owe any fiduciary duty to the other Party or any third party with respect to the performance of any of its obligations under this Agreement.
13.11No Rights in Third Parties. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, this Agreement and all rights hereunder are intended for the sole benefit of the Parties and shall not imply or create any rights on the part of, or obligations to, any other Person. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and for the avoidance of doubt, to the extent this Agreement imposes (or purports to impose) any obligations, duties or restrictions on any Joby Entity that is not a party to this Agreement, Joby Aero acknowledges and agrees that it shall be directly responsible for any violation or breach of any such obligation, duty or restriction by any such Joby Entity, and that in addition to any other rights or remedies that TOYOTA may have against such Joby Entity, TOYOTA may exercise all rights and remedies hereunder or as otherwise provided by law or in equity as would be available to TOYOTA had Joby Aero directly violated or breached such obligation, duty or restriction.
13.12Entire Agreement. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, this Agreement supersedes all existing arrangements or agreements by and between the Parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof, whether written or oral.
13.13Waiver. The terms and provisions of this Agreement may not be waived except in writing signed by the party against whom the waiver is charged. A waiver by either Party of any breach of any term or provision hereof shall not constitute a waiver of any other breach of any term or provision of this Agreement.
13.14Amendments. Any modification or amendment to this Agreement shall only be effective if it is in writing and signed by both Parties.
13.15Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument. Facsimile, “PDF” or other customary electronic execution and delivery of this Agreement, and any Purchase Order submitted pursuant to this Agreement, is legal, valid and binding for all purposes.
13.16Further Assurances. Each Party agrees to provide such information, execute and deliver any instruments and documents and to take such other actions as may be necessary or reasonably requested by the other Party which are not inconsistent with the provisions of this Agreement and which do not involve the assumptions of obligations other than those provided for in this Agreement, in order to give full effect to this Agreement and to carry out the intent of this Agreement.
13.17Filings. The Parties will each procure that any registrations, filings and/or submissions required under the laws of any jurisdiction are made to the extent that the provisions of such laws apply to each of them. The Parties will co-ordinate and cooperate with one another in providing such information and all reasonable assistance to the other as may be requested in connection with any such registrations, filings and/or submissions.
13.18Remedies Cumulative. The rights and remedies of each of the Parties under or pursuant to this Agreement are cumulative, may be exercised as often as such Party considers appropriate and are in addition to its rights and remedies under general law.
13.19Severability. The invalidity of one or more phrases, sentences, clauses, or sections contained in this Agreement shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this Agreement so long as the material purposes of this Agreement can be determined and effectuated.
13.20Joint Effort. Preparation of this Agreement has been a joint effort of the Parties and the resulting document shall not be construed more severely against one of the Parties than against the other. Any rule of construction that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting Party shall not be employed in the interpretation of this Agreement, or any amendments hereto.
13.21Mutual Representations. As of the Effective Date, each of TOYOTA and Joby Aero represent and warrant to the other Party that:
(a)It is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the jurisdiction in which it is organized and is qualified to do business in all jurisdictions where failure to do so qualify would have a material adverse effect on its ability to perform this Agreement;

(d)It holds all Governmental Approvals required to permit it to perform its obligations contemplated by this Agreement;
(e)The execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby do not conflict with or result in a breach of, constitute a default under or require any consent under any Applicable Law by which it is bound or any agreement or instrument to which it is a party or by which it is bound;
(f)It has all necessary power and authority to execute, deliver and perform its obligations under this Agreement;
(g)The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement have been duly authorized by all necessary action on its part;
