What is a Deferred Payment Agreement?

A deferred payment agreement is an agreement between a lender and a borrower where the borrower pushes their payments back to a later date. This arrangement is often made when the borrower cannot pay immediately and the lender is willing to make accommodations. The borrower can continue to use whatever they are borrowing, but they may have to start paying interest on it. A deferred payment agreement may be used for tuition (student loans), goods and services (layaway), or to make payments after a specific hardship (COVID-19 deferments). Deferred payment plans an alternative to paying late or defaulting on a loan.

WHEREAS, Section 2.02(c) of that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of March 17, 2014, as amended by Amendment No.1 to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of May 12, 2014 (the “Merger Agreement”), among the Company, Giant Interactive Group, Inc. (the “Target”), an exempted company with limited liability incorporated under the Laws of the Cayman Islands, and Giant Merger Limited, an exempted company with limited liability incorporated under the Laws of the Cayman Islands, provides that each former holder (or his or her designee) of a Company RS that is cancelled at the Effective Time will, in exchange for such Company RS, be paid a cash amount equal to the Per Share Merger Consideration (the “RS Merger Consideration”); and

WHEREAS, the parties desire to enter into this Agreement in advance of the Effective Time.

NOW THEREFORE, intending to be legally bound, for and in consideration of the promises and mutual covenants and agreements contained in this Agreement, the parties agree as follows:

1. Agreement and Acknowledgement. The Company shall cause the Surviving Corporation to pay all of the RS Merger Consideration that would otherwise have been payable to you pursuant to the Merger Agreement (your “Deferred Amount”) to the Nominee, of which you are a limited partner.

Each such distribution will be made in cash, less applicable taxes and other withholdings. Each successive six (6) month anniversary of the Effective Time (or such later time as the Participant and the GP (as defined below) may mutually agree) is a “Vesting Date” (for the avoidance of any doubt, there are five (5) Vesting Dates over a period of thirty (30) months following the Effective Time).

(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, at any time before the thirty (30) month anniversary of the Effective Time, you cease to be a Service Provider of the Target (or any direct or indirect subsidiary, parent or successor of the Target or Holdco) due to your death or Disability or your position as a Service Provider of the Target (or any direct or indirect subsidiary, parent or successor of the Target or Holdco) is terminated by the Target (or any direct or indirect subsidiary, parent or successor of the Target or Holdco) for a reason other than Cause, then, subject to you executing a separation and release of claims agreement in favor of the Nominee and the Target, the balance of your Deferred Amount will be paid to you within thirty (30) days following the later of (x) the date on which you cease to be a Service Provider of the Target (or any direct or indirect subsidiary, parent or successor of the Target or Holdco) or (y) the date the release of claims becomes effective and irrevocable.

4. Governing Law; Severability. This Agreement will be construed, administered and enforced according to the laws of the State of New York.

5. Dispute Resolution.

(a) Form and Venue.

(i) Any disputes, actions and proceedings against any party or arising out of or in any way relating to this Agreement shall be submitted to the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (“HKIAC”) and resolved in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of HKIAC in force at the relevant time (the “Rules”) and as may be amended by this Section 5. The place of arbitration shall be Hong Kong. The official language of the arbitration shall be English and the arbitration tribunal shall consist of three arbitrators (each, an “Arbitrator”). The claimant(s), irrespective of number, shall nominate jointly one Arbitrator; the respondent(s), irrespective of number, shall nominate jointly one Arbitrator; and a third Arbitrator will be nominated jointly by the first two Arbitrators and shall serve as chairman of the arbitration tribunal. In the event the claimant(s) or respondent(s) or the first two Arbitrators shall fail to nominate an Arbitrator or agree on the joint nomination of the third Arbitrator, as applicable, within the time limits specified by the Rules, such Arbitrator shall be appointed promptly by the HKIAC. The arbitration tribunal shall have no authority to award punitive or other punitive-type damages. The award of the arbitration tribunal shall be final and binding upon the disputing parties. Any party to an award may apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for enforcement of such award and, for purposes of the enforcement of such award, the parties irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the jurisdiction of any court of competent jurisdiction and waive any defenses to such enforcement based on lack of personal jurisdiction or inconvenient forum.

(ii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereby consent to and agree that in addition to any recourse to arbitration as set out in this Section 5, any party may, to the extent permitted under the laws of the jurisdiction where application is made, seek an interim injunction from a court or other authority with competent jurisdiction and a court or authority hearing an application for injunctive relief may apply the procedural law of the jurisdiction where the court or other authority is located in determining whether to grant the interim injunction. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 5(a)(ii) is only applicable to the seeking of interim injunctions and does not restrict the application of Section 5(a)(i) in any way.
