The Agreement may be terminated by SIE at any time after the expiration of the Initial Term for any or no reason upon thirty (30) days’ notice to the Company.  The Agreement may also be terminated by SIE immediately upon written notice to the Company in the event of, among other things, a breach by the Company or its bankruptcy or insolvency. SIE may also terminate the Agreement on a title-by-title basis. Upon expiration or termination of the Agreement, the Company has certain rights to sell off existing inventories.
