6) Responsibilities of Management:
-Attorney registration of land purchase.
-Upon taking possession of the land, Management will develop the land and manage it without taking any more payments from the buyer beyond the above initial Start-up and Management term which is for four (4) years.

7) It is understood that for the first four (4) years there is no expected income from olives produced by olive trees.  After the four (4) year period, olives will be harvested every late autumn season.  Those olives will be brought to an olive press and made into high quality cold pressed oil.  The freshly pressed oil will be stored in large containers for a few months to allow unnecessary sediments to settle and then the oil will be bottled in different sizes and sold to quality conscious consumers by Management.  Management will continue to do all that is necessary and pay all expenses and labor to ensure the best possible annual results.
8) Distribution of Income: Management will be responsible for 100% of maintenance expenses, labor, and marketing of the final product.  In return, Management will receive 75% of gross sales and the buyer(s) [owners] will receive 25% of gross sales.
This management part of the contract will automatically renew at the end of each four (4) year period. There will be no additional Start up fees after the initial (4) four-year period.  Should the buyer(s) decide to terminate this contract by a consensus of at least 51% ownership of the property, Management will continue to manage the property until the end of that harvest season.
If Management chooses to cease managing the property, it must find a suitable replacement to manage the property at the same price rates or less.
