implemented as of November 1, 1998:-

vessel details as per "Rebate Request Form" together with any information that
may be deemed necessary by the client, SCA shall study the case and notify the client of
the proposed rebate as soon as possible.
- The client will notify SCA of his acceptance or his final
counter proposal by fax.
- SCA will restudy the case for the last time and either
maintain its previous rebate, or submit the rock bottom rebate which will not be subject
to any further negotiations.

SCA hopes that all its clients will follow the above
