MIMEDX GROUP INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES (COLLECTIVELY, “MIMEDX”) STANDARD PURCHASE ORDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The Purchase Order attached to or included with these PO Terms (collectively, the “Order”) is expressly subject to Seller’s agreement to these PO Terms. This Order shall constitute a binding contract upon the earlier of Seller’s acceptance of the Order or Seller’s performance of any portion of this Order, whether by delivery of Goods or performance of services, as applicable. MiMedx objects to all additions, exceptions, or changes to the Order, whether contained in any printed form of Seller or elsewhere, unless such terms are expressly approved by MiMedx in writing. There may be no substitutes or variations from specifications or instructions, or partial shipments, without the prior written approval of MiMedx.
- Definitions. For purposes of this Order, the term (i) “Goods” means all goods (including associated documentation) and services provided by Seller under this Purchase Order, and (ii) “MiMedx” means one or more of the affiliated companies of MiMedx Group, Inc. identified on the Order.
- Conflicts and Priority. In the event of a conflict between the terms of these PO Terms and the terms of any previously existing, fully signed and executed agreement between the parties relating to the subject of this Order (“Existing Agreement”), the terms and conditions of the Existing Agreement shall control, unless an order or change order expresses specific intent to supersede the terms of the Existing Agreement. Except where an Existing Agreement has been executed by the parties, this Order constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the Goods and/or services reflected in this Order.
- Price and Payment. Seller shall invoice MiMedx the purchase price specified in this Order (“Purchase Price”) after delivery of the Goods to MiMedx or performance of the services, as applicable. MiMedx shall pay Seller the Purchase Price net 60 days, from the later of (I) receipt of an accurate and proper invoice, or (II) acceptance of the Goods. MiMedx may withhold all or part of payment if MiMedx disputes Seller’s compliance with the terms of this Order. MiMedx’s payment of this Order is not acceptance of the Goods. The Order number must appear on all invoices, notices and packing materials. Seller’s price shall include all taxes, except sales and use taxes. MiMedx shall provide Seller with MiMedx’s exemption certificate where applicable. Seller shall make any claims for unpaid fees, invoices, or other amounts owing to it, within one hundred twenty (120) days of the earlier of (A) the date of Seller’s first invoice for such amounts or (B) the date on which the alleged payment obligation accrued. If Seller fails to make a claim within the foregoing time period, then MiMedx will not be obligated to make payments for, or investigate such claims.
- Travel and Related Expenses (for Services). MiMedx agrees to reimburse Seller for reasonable travel expenses incurred in connection with services performed pursuant to this Order, provided such expenses are expressly approved by MiMedx in writing in advance and incurred in accordance with MiMedx’s Corporate Travel Policy, a copy of which shall be made available on request, where applicable. MiMedx shall not be obligated to reimburse Seller for any expense for which Seller does not provide a receipt as and when requested.
- Shipment and Delivery. Seller shall deliver Goods DDP Destination (Incoterms 2010), unless otherwise specified in the Order. For clarity, this means that Supplier shall be responsible for paying all freight costs and delivering the Goods to the named placed of destination, and where applicable, cleared for import with all duties and customs formalities fulfilled. Seller must comply at Seller’s expense with any packing and shipping instructions issued by MiMedx. Seller is responsible for risk of loss or damage to the Goods caused by packing. Seller is responsible for additional costs caused by Seller’s failure to comply with shipping instructions. Seller must give MiMedx immediate notice of its anticipated failure to meet the shipment or delivery schedule.
- Title and Risk of Loss. Title to and risk of loss of the Goods shall pass to MiMedx upon delivery and acceptance of the Goods.
- Acceptance and Rejection. All Goods purchased under this Order are subject to MiMedx’s acceptance. MiMedx’s count of Goods will be conclusive on shipments not accompanied by a packing slip. MiMedx reserves the right to reject, refuse acceptance of, or revoke acceptance of, any Goods. MiMedx shall be allowed the later of a reasonable period of time or thirty (30) days to inspect and accept the Goods and to notify Seller of any nonconformance within the terms and conditions of the Order. Payment for any Goods under this Order shall not be deemed to be acceptance of the Goods. MiMedx’s inspection or acceptance of the Goods shall not (i) relieve Seller of its obligation to comply with the terms of the Order, including without limitation all applicable warranties, or (ii) be conclusive with respect to latent defects, fraud or gross mistakes. Rejected Goods may be returned to Seller or held by MiMedx for replacement of such rejected or returned Goods, in either event, at Seller’s risk and expense. No rejected or returned Goods shall be replaced without MiMedx’s written approval. If Seller fails to promptly replace or correct any Goods to MiMedx’s satisfaction, MiMedx may purchase or replace the same and Seller shall be liable to MiMedx for any additional cost or expense thereby incurred by MiMedx.
a. Seller warrants that all Goods delivered pursuant to this Order shall (i) be new (unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing), (ii) be free of design, material and workmanship defects, (iii) be fit and safe for the intended purpose, (iv) not infringe the intellectual property rights of any third party, (v) conform with the Order, (vi) be delivered free and clear of any liens and encumbrances, and (vii) have been or will be produced in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 (29 U.S.C. 201-219), as amended from time to time.

d. Seller’s warranties shall run to MiMedx and/or its customers. Seller shall repair, replace or re-perform, at its expense (including any installation or transportation cost, where applicable), any defective or non-conforming Goods for a period equal to the longer of: (i) 12 months from MiMedx’s first use of the Goods, or (ii) such longer warranty period provided in Seller’s standard or other agreed warranty period for such Goods. MiMedx’s acceptance of the Goods shall not relieve Seller of its warranty obligations. If Seller fails to correct a defect within a reasonable period of time, or in the event of an emergency, MiMedx may repair or replace any defect in warranted Goods at Seller’s expense. With respect to latent defects, fraud or gross error or mistake, Seller shall repair or replace, at Seller’s expense, such defect irrespective of when the defect was discovered.
- Failure to Timely Perform. If Goods are not shipped, delivered, or performed on time, or in the event of any other failure to perform this Order by Seller, MiMedx may, at its option, in whole or in part, and without waiving its claim for damages against Seller: (a) cancel the Order; (b) return all or a portion of the Goods to Seller at Seller’s expense; or (c) obtain substitute Goods. In such event, Seller shall pay MiMedx the difference between the Purchase Price and the price paid by MiMedx for any substitute or replacement Goods. MiMedx shall use reasonable commercial efforts to mitigate the amount to be paid by Seller under this Section.

All devices, drawings, data, designs, reports, and other technical information provided by MiMedx remains the sole property of MiMedx and no right to such property is granted to Seller except to the limited extent necessary to perform this Order.
- Termination. MiMedx may, for cause or for its convenience, terminate or cancel all or any part of the Order upon notice to Seller. Upon termination, Seller shall immediately stop work on the terminated portion of the Order.

The terms and conditions of Section 8 (Warranty), Section 13 (Confidentiality) and Section 15 (Indemnification), shall survive the termination of the Order and/or the expiration of the Order by virtue of delivery and acceptance of the Goods under the Order.
- Indemnification. Seller shall defend, indemnify and hold MiMedx, its successors, assigns, officers, directors, and employees harmless with respect to all fines, penalties, claims, liability, damage, loss and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, environmental claims or liabilities, which are related to, caused by, or arise in connection with: (i) defects in the Goods or other non-conformance of the Goods to the terms of this Order; (ii) breach of any provision of this Order including breach of warranty; (iii) failure to deliver the Goods on a timely basis, including MiMedx’s cost to cover; (iv) failure of the Goods to meet the requirements of the applicable federal, state, and local law, ordinances, regulations, rules, declarations, interpretations and orders law, (v) fraud, negligence or willful misconduct of Seller, (vi) any claims by Seller’s employees against MiMedx, and (vii) any recall of Goods, except to the extent that any of the foregoing arise from the negligence or willful misconduct of MiMedx.
