Terms of Royalty .
(a) Subject to Section 2 below and the limitations set forth in Section 6.10 of the Purchase Agreement, Buyer shall pay to Seller (i) $0.12 per Live Round and (ii) $0.06 per Inert Round of Products produced by Buyer during the Term (the “ Royalty ”).

(b) With each Royalty payment, Buyer shall deliver to Seller a written certificate of a qualified officer of Buyer certifying the number of Live Rounds and Inert Rounds of Products produced by Buyer during the immediately preceding quarter.
Minimum Annual Royalty Payments .
(a) Notwithstanding Section 1, Buyer shall pay an annual minimum Royalty (the “ Annual Minimum Royalty ”) to Seller during the Term as follows: (a) the Annual Minimum
Royalty for the first year during the Term shall be $105,000; (b) the Annual Minimum Royalty for the second year during the Term shall be $157,000; and (c) Annual Minimum Royalty for the third, fourth, fifth and sixth years during the Term shall be $210,000; for a cumulative amount of total Annual Minimum Royalty of $1,102,000. If in any year during the Term the aggregate amount of the Royalty payments made during such year is less than the applicable Annual Minimum Royalty for such year (a “ Shortfall ”), then Buyer shall make an additional payment to Seller in the amount of the Shortfall together with the fourth quarter Royalty payment for such year.
(b) Buyer shall have the right to pre-pay any or all of the Annual Minimum Royalty without premium or penalty.
3. Security Interest . Buyer hereby grants to Seller a first priority security interest in all of the Product Rights and Patents as defined in the Purchase Agreement (the “ Assets ”) to secure Buyer’s payment of the Annual Minimum Royalties. Seller is authorized to file financing statements, amendments, termination statements, continuation statements and any other filing it may deem reasonably necessary in connection with its security interest in the Assets without Buyer’s signature. The security interest shall automatically terminate upon the payment in full of all Annual Minimum Royalties. Upon any such termination of the security interest, (i) all security interests arising under this Agreement shall automatically be released, discharged and terminated and (ii) Seller will promptly execute and deliver such UCC termination statements and other documentation and instruments (all in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Buyer and all without any representation, warranty or recourse of any kind whatsoever) as may be reasonably requested and provided to Seller to effect such release and termination.
4. Audit Rights . Seller may, upon reasonable notice to Buyer, during Buyer’s business hours, but in no event more than once each calendar year during the Term, inspect or have audited Buyer’s books and records in order to confirm the calculation of the Royalty due hereunder. Upon request of Buyer, Seller shall provide to Buyer a copy of any written report generated as a result of such audit or inspection. The costs and expenses of such inspection or audit shall be borne exclusively by Seller; provided, however, that if any such inspection or audit reveals that Buyer has underpaid any Royalty due hereunder by more than 5%, Buyer shall reimburse Seller within 30 days after receipt of a copy of the inspection or audit report for all out-of-pocket costs
