ARTICLE II TAX SHARING 2.1 Tax Sharing. ----------- (a) General. For each taxable year of the ASI Group during which income, ------- loss, or credit against tax of the Logility Group is includible in the consolidated Federal Tax return of the ASI Group, Logility shall pay to ASI an amount equal to the Logility Federal Tax Liability, and for each taxable period during which income, loss, or credit against tax of any member of the Logility Group is includible in a return relating to a Combined State Tax, Logility shall pay to ASI an amount equal to the Logility Combined State Tax Liability for such taxable period, each as shown on the Pro Forma Returns (as defined in paragraph (c) below). (b) Estimated Payments. For each taxable period, ASI may determine the ------------------ amount of the estimated tax installment of the Logility Federal Tax Liability (corresponding to ASI's estimated Federal Tax installment), as determined under the principles of Section 2.1(a). If ASI makes such a determination, Logility shall, within ten (10) business days of the statutorily mandated payment date, pay to ASI the amount so determined. For each taxable period, ASI may determine under provisions of applicable law the amount of the estimated tax installment of the Logility Combined State Tax Liability (corresponding to the relevant estimated Combined State Tax installment), as determined under the principles of Section 2.1(a). If ASI makes such a determination, Logility shall, within ten (10) business days of the statutorily mandated payment date, pay to ASI the amount so determined. (c) Payment of Taxes at Year-End. ---------------------------- (i) Within thirty (30) days after the date the ASI Group's consolidated Federal Tax return is filed, ASI shall make available to Logility a pro forma Federal Tax return (a "Pro Forma Federal Return") of the Logility Group 4 <PAGE> reflecting the Logility Federal Tax Liability. Within thirty (30) days after the date the last Combined State Tax return is filed for the fiscal year to which such returns relate, ASI shall make available to Logility the relevant pro forma Combined State Tax Returns (each a "Pro Forma Combined State Return" and together with the Pro Forma Federal Returns, the "Pro Forma Returns") of the Logility Group reflecting the relevant Logility Combined State Tax Liability. The Pro Forma Returns shall be prepared in good faith in a manner generally consistent with past practice. (ii) Within ten (10) business days of the statutorily mandated payment date, Logility shall pay to ASI, or ASI shall pay to Logility, as appropriate, an amount equal to the difference, if any, between the Logility Federal Tax Liability reflected on the Pro Forma Federal Return for such year and the aggregate amount of the estimated installments of the Logility Federal Tax Liability for such year made pursuant to Section 2.1(b). Within ten (10) business days of the statutorily mandated payment date, Logility shall pay to ASI, or ASI shall pay to Logility, as appropriate, an amount equal to the difference, if any, between the Logility Combined State Tax Liability reflected on the relevant Pro Forma Combined State Tax Return and the aggregate amount of the estimated installments paid with respect to the corresponding Logility Combined State Tax Liability pursuant to Section 2.1(b). (iii) If, under applicable law and consistent with this Agreement, the ASI Sub-Group avails itself of a Tax Asset of the Logility Group, ASI shall pay to Logility an amount equal to the Tax Saving attributable to such Tax Asset, if and when realized by ASI. The parties agree that all net operating losses and net capital losses of the ASI Group shall be taken into account by ASI in the order in which such net operating losses and net capital losses have arisen; all other Tax Assets of the Logility Group shall be taken into account by ASI in the above-described manner, subject, however, to the ordering rules then in effect under the Code. (iv) In the event that ASI makes a cash deposit with a taxing authority in order to stop the running of interest or makes a payment of tax and correspondingly takes action to recoup such payment (such as suing for a refund), Logility shall pay to ASI an amount equal to Logility's share of the amount so deposited or paid (calculated in a manner consistent with the determinations provided in this Article 2). Upon receipt by ASI of a refund of any amounts paid by it in respect of which Logility shall have advanced an amount hereunder, ASI shall pay to Logility the amount of such refund, together with any interest received by it on such refund. If and to the extent that any claim for refund or contest based thereupon shall be unsuccessful, the payment by Logility under this Section 2.1(c)(iv) may be credited by ASI toward any of Logility's obligations under this Section 2.1. (d) Treatment of Adjustments. If any adjustment is made in a Federal Tax ------------------------ return of the ASI Group or in a return relating to a Combined State Tax Return of the ASI Group, after the filing thereof, in which income or loss of the Logility Group (or any member thereof) is included, then at the time of a Final Determination of the adjustment Logility shall pay to ASI, or ASI shall pay to Logility, as the case may be, the difference between all payments actually made under Section 2.1 with respect to the taxable year or period covered by such tax return and all payments that would have been made under Section 2.1 taking such adjustment into account together 5 <PAGE> with any penalties actually paid and interest for each day until the date of Final Determination calculated at the rate determined, in the case of a payment by Logility, under Section 6621(a)(2) of the Code and, in the case of a payment by ASI, under Section 6621(a)(1) of the Code. (e) Preparation of Returns and Contests. So long as the ASI Group elects ----------------------------------- to file (i) consolidated Federal Tax returns as permitted by Section 1501 of the Code or (ii) any Combined State Tax return as permitted by applicable state law, Logility shall consent to the filing of such returns by ASI. ASI shall prepare and file such returns and any other returns, documents, or statements required to be filed with the Internal Revenue Service with respect to the determination of the Federal Tax liability of the ASI Group and with the appropriate taxing authorities with respect to the determination of a Combined State Tax liability. With respect to such return preparation, ASI shall act in good faith with regard to all members included in an applicable return. ASI shall have the right with respect to any consolidated Federal Tax return or return relating to a Combined State Tax that it has filed or will file to determine in good faith (i) the manner in which such returns, documents or statements shall be prepared and filed, including, without limitation, the manner in which any item of income, gain, loss, deduction or credit shall be reported, (ii) whether any extensions should be requested, and (iii) the elections that will be made by any member of the ASI Group. In addition, ASI shall have the right, in good faith, to (i) contest, compromise, or settle any adjustment or deficiency proposed, or as a result of any audit of any Federal Tax return or return relating to a Combined State Tax, (ii) file, prosecute, compromise or settle any claim for refund, and (iii) determine whether any refunds shall be received by way of refund or credited against tax liabilities. In addition, ASI shall prepare and file ruling requests, and take all other actions on behalf of any member of the ASI Group that it deems appropriate in providing tax services to the members of the ASI Group. ASI shall, to the extent such information is available, advise Logility of any significant Logility tax issue being contested by the federal, state, local or other relevant taxing authorities, and shall keep Logility informed with respect to any contest, compromise or settlement thereof. (f) Foreign Tax Returns. Logility shall not be required to consent to the ------------------- filing of any foreign tax return to be filed on a combined, consolidated, or unitary basis with the ASI Sub-Group unless and until this Agreement is modified to take into account the allocation of such foreign tax liability between the ASI Sub-Group and the Logility Group. The allocation of such foreign tax liability shall be in accordance with the principles set forth in this Agreement. 2.2 Reimbursement for Certain Services. ASI shall provide services in ---------------------------------- connection with this Agreement, including, but not limited to, (i) those services relating to the preparation of returns (including Pro Forma Returns) described in paragraph 2.1(b) above, and (ii) services relating to the other activities described in paragraph 2.1(e) above. As compensation for these services, Logility shall pay ASI a fee calculated on a basis such that ASI is reimbursed for all direct and indirect costs and expenses incurred with respect to Logility's share of the overall costs and expenses incurred by ASI with respect to tax-related services. ASI shall calculate and invoice Logility for the fee payable, and Logility will pay the invoiced amount in a manner consistent with the invoice and payment 6 <PAGE> procedures provided for in that certain Services Agreement, between ASI, certain members of the ASI Sub-Group, and Logility, dated of even date herewith. 2.3 Additional Services. ASI will provide the tax services described in ------------------- this Article II with respect to all of the state, local and foreign taxes of any members of the Logility Group that do not relate to consolidated Federal Taxes or Combined State Taxes. ASI will provide these services in a manner consistent with the principles contained in Article II and will be compensated in the same manner as described in Section 2.2. ARTICLE III POST-DECONSOLIDATION 3.1. Additional Rights and Liabilities Post-Deconsolidation. ------------------------------------------------------ (a) Restrictions on Changes. Logility covenants that on or after a ----------------------- Deconsolidation it will not, nor will it cause or permit any member of the Logility Group to make or change any tax election, change any accounting method, amend any tax return or take any tax position on any tax return, take any other action, omit to take any action, or enter into any transaction that results in any in tax liability or reduction of any Tax Asset of the ASI Group or any member thereof (immediately after the Deconsolidation) in respect of any Pre- Deconsolidation Tax Period, without first obtaining the written consent of an authorized representative of ASI. (b) Option to Reattribute Assets and Allocate Items. In the event of a ----------------------------------------------- Deconsolidation, ASI may, at its option, elect, and Logility shall join ASI in electing (if necessary), (i) to reattribute to itself certain Tax Assets of the Logility Group pursuant to Treasury Regulations Section 1.1502-20(g) and, if ASI makes such election, Logility shall comply with the requirements of Treasury Regulations Section 1.1502-20(g)(5)), and (ii) to ratably allocate items (other than extraordinary items) of the Logility Group in accordance with relevant provisions of the Treasury Regulations Section 1.1502-76.

The parties agree that all net operating losses and net capital losses of the ASI Group shall be taken into account by ASI in the order in which such net operating losses and net capital losses have arisen; all other Tax Assets of the Logility Group shall be taken into account by ASI in the above-described manner, subject, however, to the ordering rules then in effect under the Code.

Logility shall hold ASI harmless for any penalty or interest payable by any member of the ASI Group, as a result of any Event. Any such amount shall be paid by Logility to ASI within 90 days of the payment by ASI or any member of the ASI Group of any such interest or penalty. Nothing in this Agreement shall require ASI to file a claim for refund of Federal Taxes or Combined State Taxes which ASI, in its sole discretion, determines lacks substantial authority, as defined in the Code and the regulations thereunder.
