  1. **Bond Pictures: SPE gets Bond pictures only if produced during 5 year term. [Our position was a guarantee of 2 Bond pictures.] SPE finances 50% of production costs (approx. $180M) and distribution expenses (approx. $175m), distributes for no fee and gets 25% of profits. [Our position was 8% fee if we invest 25% or 5% fee if we invest 50%, with profit share equal to our percentage investment.] MGM will waive 5% of gross Rights Fee.

  2. ** Girl With Dragon Tattoo and Sequels. MGM has right to finance 50% and distribute international TV on "Girl" and all sequels, in addition to Total Recall [which we had already offered].
