4.2 INFLATION ADJUSTMENT. For multi-year agreements, at the end of the first year of the Agreement and each year thereafter, a CPI percentage change calculation shall be performed using the U.S. Department of Labor, Consumer Price Index, “All Items,” Unadjusted Urban Areas (CPI-U). Should the annual inflation rate increase greater than 3% during the previous year, Motorola shall have the right to increase all future maintenance prices by the CPI increase amount exceeding 3%. “All Items,” not seasonally adjusted shall be used as the measure of CPI for this price adjustment. The adjustment calculation will be based upon the CPI for the most recent twelve (12) month increment beginning from the most current month available as posted by the U.S. Department of Labor ( immediately preceding the new maintenance year. For purposes of illustration, if in Year 5 the CPI reported an increase of 8%, Motorola may increase the Year 6 price by 5% (8%-3% base).
