after-sales support, and to further enhance the Surf-fur brand image and its competitiveness in the
marketplace, Surf-fur is unilaterally instituting a policy of minimum advertised price standards for Surf
fur products. This Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) will become effective February 2016 and will
apply to distributors and retailers, including catalogs and internet retailers (collectively, “Resellers”),

and the manufacturers suggested retail price (MSRP) for those products. Each advertisement of a
product identified in the MSRP Schedule below the MAP will be a violation of the MAP Policy.

catalogs, e-mail newsletters, e-mail solicitations, internet or similar electronic media, television, radio,
and public signage. This MAP policy is not applicable to any in-store advertising that is displayed only in
the store and not distributed to any customer(s).

manufacturer) with a product covered by this MAP Policy would be contrary to this MAP policy if it has

discount price below the MAP is prohibited.

products at any price in excess of the MSRP.

see price”, “we will match any price”, “call for price” or phrases of similar import are acceptable as long
as the price advertised or listed for the products is not below the MAP. In addition, discounts applied at
checkout to the entire order based on a customer’s purchasing history with the Reseller, such as
discounts for frequent shoppers”, do not violate this MAP Policy.
