ADDENDUM A. (from Omron Distributor Agreement) Omron Microscan (OCR) CHANNEL DISTRIBUTION PARTNER Authorizations, Requirements, Expectations and Incentives OCR Tier Summary: An OCR channel partner is expected to be engaged at most every level of business and in all authorized markets. There is a strong AE/OSR engagement, minimal line card conflict in the machine vision (MV), bar code (ID) and verification product category (LVS), with consistent business planning activities that are meaningful and productive. NOTE: (For FY18 (April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019), the following addendum will serve as a starting point during the transition and evolution of Omron’s and Microscan’s Advanced Sensing Technologies. At this time, only products previously offered by Microscan Systems are included in the OCR addendum.) Two levels (Elite and Select) are offered in the Microscan partner program. Each level has specific discount (multiplier) levels listed in the table below. Qualification for each level will be monitored and adjusted yearly by Omron Sales and Channel team based on channel partner meeting the expectations defined in this addendum. A brief summary of the two levels and starting expectations are: • ELITE The core OCR lines (MV, ID and LVS) will be technically supported throughout the various stages of the sales process including design, proof of concept, BOM development, install and post-sales support including trouble shooting. Demo equipment requirements as defined in this addendum will be acquired and maintained locally. Continued training of local personnel and customers to maintain certifications. Will not carry defined competitive lines that directly compete with the current product offering in MV, ID and LVS which are defined in Section 1B . For FY18, a grace period will be granted to legacy Microscan Channel partners to take the needed actions for compliance. • SELECT Choice of MV or ID product authorization with the option to include LVS product. ▪ An LVS only option is also available For the chosen technology, channel partner is expected to technically support throughout the various stages of the sales process including design, proof of concept, BOM development, install and post-sales support including trouble shooting. Demo equipment requirements as defined in this addendum are expected to be achieved and available for the defined Area of Primary Responsibility (APR) Omron will be the #1 supplier in the specific technology chosen. For FY18, if not currently #1, a path to attain #1 status will need to be mutually established by local Sales and Channel leadership. POS: Mandatory for all Distributor partners and to be sent to Budde Marketing by the 5th of every month in accordance with Exhibit C of Omron Distribution agreement. firstname.lastname@example.org.

SELECT: Omron will be the #1 supplier in the specific technology chosen. For FY18, if not currently #1, a path to attain #1 status will need to be mutually established by local Sales and Channel leadership. 2. Self Sufficiency A.

The local Omron Sales Manager will have final authority on compliance with AE staffing requirements. Requirement Notes: • AE staffing requirement is for EACH regional market the distributor is authorized to sell Omron OCR. • Limitations on the max size of market that an AE supports (geography & revenues) will be set by Omron RSM. • In the event of AE termination, a grace period of 120 days is granted to hire a replacement & fulfill training • When in question, Omron reserves the right to determine appropriate designation of what qualifies as a Standard or Dedicated AE and the proper regional market size.

Incentive Programs OMRON offers several incentives for maintaining Partner Level requirements, which include a Co-op program. Our goal is to provide incentives in multiple business areas of our mutual engagement to increase the value our channel partners realize in being an authorized Omron distributor. Below is an update of the incentives being offered for maintaining the ELITE or SELECT Partner Level requirements for FY18. A. Co-op Growth Target Attainment Local promotion is vital for mutual growth. To help fund initiatives to grow Omron’s business, Co-op funds will be offered to ELITE & SELECT OCR channel partners. We believe the availability of these funds will create additional visibility within your organization for the value of working with Omron and reinvestment in the relationship. To ensure a fair and accurate program for FY18, the % of funds will be calculated on actual shipments throughout the year. Standard program practice is to pay based on Year over Year growth.
