Under the Agreement, GF Netherlands will be entitled to receive from Fulcrum the following additional contingent consideration for the Common Shares to be purchased by Fulcrum:

  2. an amount in cash from time to time equal to 15% of the value of any gross proceeds paid at any time to Fulcrum or any of its affiliates from Rusoro or third parties in respect of the Purchased Shares (including in connection with any disposition of the Purchased Shares, or as a dividend, distribution, return of capital, share repurchase or similar amount), to the extent that the gross amount of such cumulative proceeds exceeds US$210,000,000.
