WITNESSETH:
     WHEREAS, the Parties are affiliated entities that are active in the field of digital entertainment and interactive games; and

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein, the parties hereto agree as follows:
ARTICLE I
SERVICES TO BE ROVIDED
     1.01. Performance of Services.
          (a) Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein and on Schedule I hereto, as may be amended from time to time ("Schedule I"), Atari, either directly or through engagement of third party vendors (its "Vendors"), shall provide the IESA Parties with the services set forth on Schedule I with respect to the Production Titles (as defined in Schedule I) (the "Services"). Atari or IESA may at any time amend Schedule I with the prior written consent of the other party.
          (b) Except as specifically provided in Schedule I, Atari or its Vendors shall provide each of the Services listed in Schedule I for a term commencing on the Effective Date and ending on March 31, 2008, unless earlier terminated by IESA and/or Atari in accordance with Section 3.01 hereof (the "Services Period" or "Term.").
          (c) Atari or its Vendors shall provide the Services promptly with that degree of skill, attention and care that Atari exercises and has heretofore exercised with respect to furnishing comparable services to itself and its affiliates. Atari shall be under no obligation to hire additional Vendors or employees in order to provide the services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if, after the Effective Date, one or several Services Employees leave Atari or if, for any reason, the Vendors can not provide the Services, Atari will promptly inform IESA and the parties will work together in order to find a replacement solution enabling the execution of the Services.
          (d) Representatives of Atari and IESA, or IESA's designee, shall meet at

Page 1 of 8


 
least on a monthly basis to review the Services. These meetings will take place in Atari's office in New York or via teleconference or video conference. These meetings will be arranged by IESA and the costs of such meetings will be borne by IESA.
          (e) Unless otherwise specified in Schedule I, all employees of Atari providing the Services hereunder to the IESA Parties during the Term (collectively, the "Services Employees") and all Vendors shall be deemed for all purposes (including compensation and employee benefits, as applicable) to be employees or Vendors solely of Atari and not to be employees or Vendors of the IESA Parties or to be independent contractors thereof. In performing their respective duties hereunder, all such employees or Vendors of Atari shall be under the direction, control and supervision of Atari and Atari shall have the sole right to exercise all authority with respect to the employment (including termination of employment) (as applicable), retention of independent contractor/Vendor relationship, assignment and compensation of such employees or Vendors. Atari shall be solely responsible for (i) the acts and omissions of the Services Employees and (ii) any breaches of this Agreement committed by any Services Employee, in connection with their provision of the Services. During the Term, the IESA Parties shall not solicit the Services Employees, except with the consent and cooperation of Atari.
     1.02. Outsourcing. The IESA Parties acknowledge that Atari currently outsources a portion of its QA functionality to its Vendors and intends to continue to do so during the Term on substantially similar conditions to the extent materially feasible.
     1.03. Billing and Payment for the Services.
          (a) IESA shall pay Atari, as the sole and exclusive compensation hereunder, for the Services, a fee in the amount of the costs actually incurred by Atari in connection with providing the Services (including all costs and fees payable to its Vendors), plus 10 percent (10%) of such costs. In addition, IESA shall pay Atari the following amounts: (i) 50% of the aggregate amount payable as accrued vacation to the Services Employees that work directly on IESA Party projects or are otherwise general QA support staff (i.e., 2 employees) if and when such Services Employees are severed, even if those Services Employees are severed following expiration of the Term; (ii) 100% of the aggregate amount payable as retention bonuses to the Services Employees that work directly on IESA Party projects; and (iii) 15% of the aggregate amount payable as retention bonuses to the Services Employees that are general QA support staff.
          (b) Following the Effective Date, Atari shall on a quarterly basis, submit to IESA its billing invoice in US Dollars (the "Services Invoice") setting out itemized costs in connection with the Services, together with the calculation of the 10% premium charge. Additional itemization and further explanation and substantiation of charges shall be supplied to IESA upon its reasonably request. Payment by IESA in respect of any such invoice shall be made within 30 days after the date upon which such Services Invoice is sent to IESA.
          (c) IESA acknowledges that Atari currently provides, and is expected to provide certain services to IESA and/or its affiliates upon the terms and conditions set forth in various services agreements (as they may be amended or superseded from time to time). IESA

and Atari expressly agree that each Party and its respective affiliates shall have the right throughout the term of this Agreement to offset such payments as are owed under this Agreement against payments due under any services agreements then in effect between two or more of the Parties.
ARTICLE II
