Section 3.03. Pass-Through Billing. The costs of Services determined by the -------------------- Pass-Through Billing method shall be equal to the third-party costs and expenses incurred by any ASI Entity on behalf of any Logility Entity. If an ASI Entity incurs costs or expenses on behalf of any Logility Entity as well as other businesses operated by such ASI Entity, the ASI Entity will allocate any such costs or expenses in good faith between the various businesses on behalf of which such costs or expenses were incurred as such ASI Entity shall determine in the exercise of its reasonable judgment.

The costs of Services determined by the Cost ----------------- Plus Billing method, as set forth on Schedule II, shall be equal to the costs and expenses incurred by any ASI Entity on behalf of any Logility Entity, plus a fixed percentage of such costs and expenses to be negotiated by the parties in good faith. If an ASI Entity incurs costs or expenses on behalf of any Logility Entity as well as other businesses operated by such ASI Entity, the ASI Entity will allocate any such costs or expenses in good faith between the various businesses on behalf of which such costs or expenses were incurred as the ASI Entity shall determine in the exercise of its reasonable judgment.

On and after the Closing Date, Logility employees shall continue to be eligible to participate in certain ASI Plans, as specified by ASI prior to the Closing Date ("ASI Plans"), subject to the terms of the governing plan documents as interpreted by the appropriate plan fiduciaries. On and after the Closing Date, subject to regulatory requirements and the provisions of Section 4.01 hereof, ASI will continue to provide Benefits Services to and in respect of Logility employees with reference to such ASI Plans as it administered them prior to the Closing Date.

In addition, the costs associated with certain plans and programs identified in Schedule III will be paid principally through employee payroll deductions for such plans and programs. Benefit Services consist of those categories of Services which are more fully described on Schedule III attached hereto. 5 <PAGE> (c) Each party to this Agreement may request changes in the applicable terms of, or services relating to, ASI Plans. approval of which shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided, however, that approval of changes in the terms of any ASI Plans shall be in the sole discretion of ASI. (d) ASI and Logility agree to cooperate fully with each other in the administration and coordination of regulatory and administrative requirements associated with ASI Plans.

Section 3.06. Invoicing and Settlement of Costs. --------------------------------- (a) ASI will invoice Logility for the Service Costs on a monthly basis, in arrears, either directly or through an intracompany billing system, in a manner substantially consistent with the billing practices used in connection with services provided to the Logility Entities prior to the Closing Date (except as otherwise agreed). In connection with the invoicing described in this Section 3.06(a), ASI will provide to Logility the same billing data and level of detail as it customarily provides to other businesses and Subsidiaries operated by ASI and such other data as may be reasonably requested by Logility. (b) Logility agrees to pay within thirty (30) days after each date on which ASI invoices Logility for the Service Costs (each, a "Payment Date"), at ASI's option upon reasonable notice to Logility, through ASI's intracompany billing system, cash management systems, or, if requested by ASI, by wire transfer of immediately available funds payable to the order of ASI, and in any event without set off, defense, or demand, all amounts invoiced by ASI pursuant to paragraph (a) above during the preceding calendar month (or since the Closing Date. in the case of the first Payment Date). If Logility fails to pay any monthly payment within thirty (30) days of the relevant Payment Date, Logility shall be obligated to pay, in addition to the amount due on such Payment Date, simple interest on such amount at a rate of one percent (1%) per month. (c) Except as otherwise provided in the Schedules or agreed in writing by the parties, Logility shall take such action as is necessary to establish bank accounts (to be funded by Logility) or to otherwise fund all wage and salary payments to Logility employees and to fund all medical, retirement, and other benefit claims payable to or on behalf of Logility employees and their dependents to the extent not covered by third party insurance. Payroll services and benefit claims processing activities performed by ASI or ASI's subcontractors shall be coordinated to facilitate payments. Following prior written notice of not less than fifteen (15) business days, ASI shall be relieved of any obligation to deliver benefit and payroll services under this 6 <PAGE> Agreement to the extent that such bank accounts or other funding arrangements are not established at the time drafts are presented for payment, or at any time when there are insufficient funds in the relevant account or such other arrangements fail to satisfy a properly presented claim. Section 3.07. Amended Schedules. ASI may, from time to time, prepare and ----------------- deliver to Logility revised versions of any or all Schedules, setting forth with respect to the Services described in such Schedules, any proposed changes in billing methodology and, to the extent available, the Service Costs estimated to be payable for such Services pursuant to such revised Schedules. Except as otherwise provided in Article V, or as Logility and ASI may otherwise agree, and except as specifically described in this Agreement (including the Schedules), ASI may not change the method of allocating and charging the Service Cost of any Service provided to Logility unless Logility is notified in writing not less than ninety (90) days in advance of implementing such revised method. ARTICLE IV THE SERVICES Section 4.01. Standard of Care. Except as otherwise agreed with Logility or as ---------------- described in this Agreement, and provided that ASI is not restricted by contract with third parties or by applicable law, ASI agrees that the nature, quality, and standard of care applicable to the delivery of the Services hereunder will be substantially the same as that of the Services which ASI provides from time to time throughout its businesses; provided that in no event shall such standard of care be less than the standard of care that ASI has customarily provided to Logility with respect to the relevant Service prior to the Closing Date. ASI shall use its reasonable efforts to ensure that the nature and quality of Services provided to Logility employees, either by ASI directly or through administrators under contract, shall be undifferentiated as compared with the same services provided to or on behalf of ASI employees under ASI Plans. Section 4.02. Delegation. Subject to Section 4.01 above, Logility hereby ---------- delegates to ASI final, binding, and exclusive authority, responsibility, and discretion to interpret and construe the provisions of employee welfare benefit plans in which Logility has elected to participate and which are administered by ASI under this Agreement (collectively, the "Employee Welfare Plans"). ASI may further delegate such authority to plan administrators to: (i)provide administrative and other services; (ii)reach factually supported conclusions consistent with the terms of the Employee Welfare Plans; (iii)make a full and fair review of each claim, denial, and decision related to the provision of benefits provided or arranged for under the Employee Welfare Plans, pursuant to the requirements of ERISA, if within sixty (60) days after receipt of the notice of denial, a claimant requests in writing a review 7 <PAGE> for reconsideration of such decisions.
