Terms and Conditions of Sale
Scope and Acceptance. These Terms and Conditions of Sale (“Terms”) are applicable to all sales of its goods and products (“Products”) by The Orthopaedic Implant Company (“OIC”) to third party purchasers (each, a “Purchaser”) and are the only terms and conditions applicable to the sale of Products. Any of the following shall constitute Purchaser’s unqualified acceptance of these Terms: (a) written acknowledgement of these Terms; (b) issuance of a purchase order for Products (“Order”); (c) acceptance of any shipment or delivery of Products; (d) payment for any Products; or (e) any other act or expression of acceptance by Purchaser.
Purchase Orders and Pricing. OIC has no obligation to accept any Order; however, OIC may accept an Order by confirming the Order in writing or by delivering the applicable Products to Purchaser, whichever occurs first. Orders are not binding on OIC unless so accepted, and OIC may reject or cancel an Order, which it may do without liability or penalty and without constituting a waiver of any of OIC’s rights or remedies. Upon acceptance of an Order, Purchaser shall be obligated to purchase from OIC quantities of Products specified in such Order. Cancellation or modification of all or part of any Order is subject to OIC’s prior written consent in each instance and subject to payment of reasonable charges for any expenses incurred by OIC in processing the Order. Prices for Products are as set forth on the applicable Order, or if no prices are stated on the applicable Order, at OIC’s then-current rates for the Products at the time of shipment, unless otherwise agreed in writing (“Purchase Price”). Purchaser agrees to pay to OIC the Purchase Price.

All prices quoted shall be in U.S. Dollars, unless expressly indicated by OIC otherwise.
Payment Terms. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by OIC and with approved credit, payment for Products is due net 30 from OIC delivery, and OIC shall have no obligation to deliver the Products unless and until payment has been received. Purchaser shall remit payment to OIC by wire transfer, ACH, check, or otherwise as agreed between the parties.
Delivery; Risk of Loss; Title. Delivery shall be FOB Origin.OIC reserves the right to subcontract its fulfillment of any Order or part thereof. In absence of packing instructions from Purchaser that OIC accepts, OIC shall use its own discretion in choice of method of packing. Risk of loss and damage, whether insurable or otherwise, shall pass to Purchaser after the Products are made available at OIC’s warehouse location in Reno, Nevada. Loss of or damage to the Products after the risk of such loss or damage has passed to Purchaser does not discharge Purchaser from its obligation to make full payment of the Purchase Price and other sums due. OIC shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make delivery of Products within the time requested by or discussed with Purchaser, however, such times are non-binding and are not of the essence or representations of fact, and OIC shall not be liable for any loss, damage, cost, or expense resulting from any delay. In the event of delay beyond any date agreed for OIC’s performance of its obligations under these Terms due to circumstances for which Purchaser is responsible (including a lack of acceptance), the risk of accidental loss of the Products to be delivered (including while in storage) passes to Purchaser from the time of such delay, and OIC will be entitled to compensation for any costs, expenses, and losses it suffers by reason thereof. In case of accidental loss, OIC shall be released from its performance obligations; however, Purchaser remains obliged to make full payment of the Purchase Price and other sums due. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of the risk of loss to Purchaser, OIC shall retain title to all Products supplied to Purchaser until Purchaser has remitted the entire Purchase Price and any other sums due in full for the applicable Products.
Inspection and Returns. Purchaser shall inspect the Products immediately upon receipt. Unless Purchaser provides OIC with written notice of any claim for damaged, defective, or insufficient Products within ten (10) days after delivery,such Products shall be deemed finally inspected, checked, and accepted by Purchaser.

Title to the Products returned in accordance with this Section 5, if already acquired by Purchaser, shall retransfer to OIC upon delivery of the Products to OIC facilities.
Bankruptcy. If Purchaser becomes insolvent, a petition is filed for Purchaser’s reorganization or for Purchaser’s adjudication as a bankrupt entity, Purchaser makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, a receiver or trustee is appointed for any of Purchaser’s assets, or in the event any other insolvency proceeding or formal or informal proceeding for the dissolution, liquidation, or winding up or affairs of Purchaser is commenced, then, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in these Terms: (a) all sums unpaid by Purchaser for Products shall immediately become due and payable, and (b) Purchaser’s right to deal in the ordinary course of business or otherwise sell or dispose of Products the title of which is retained by OIC shall automatically and immediately terminate.

Purchaser represents and warrants that neither it nor any of its affiliates, officers, directors, subcontractors, agents, employees or representatives have ever been debarred, excluded, or suspended by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General or otherwise deemed ineligible to participate in federal healthcare or procurement programs, or to the extent applicable, state healthcare or procurement programs; or convicted of a criminal offense related to health care reimbursement.
