The standardised EBITDA value for 2019 will be determined on the basis of approved and audited 2019 financial statements of ArchiDoc and its subsidiary.

The Parties have also agreed that the Issuer will be entitled to conditional additional payments to the Selling Price that will be due in case ArchiDoc has exceeded the agreed standardised EBITDA value in the period from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020 and from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2021. The total maximum amount of additional payments to the price on this account will not exceed PLN 15.000.000,00.
