(the "Action"), 07-CV1658, filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco Division, and shall be made part of the Protective Order and Protective Order Amendment.

In addition, "SAP Coverage Counsel" shall refer to SAP's retained outside counsel who have been retained to provide counsel to SAP as to SAP Insurers and who also receive Discovery Materials designated as "Confidential Information" or "Highly Confidential Information Attorneys' Eyes Only" under the Protective Order ("Designated Material") under this SAP Coverage Counsel Addendum to the Protective Order and Protective Order Amendment.

SAP Coverage Counsel will not only use this information to provide counsel to SAP in regard to coverage issues arising from the Action, but will also provide this information where necessary and on behalf of SAP to the Insurer Receiver Parties, as defined in the Protective Order Addendum. The SAP Insurers and SAP share a common and mutual interest in the defense of the Action, 1 Case4:07-cv-01658-PJH Document605-1 Filed01/06/10 Page2 of 4 notwithstanding the SAP Insurers' ongoing reservation of rights, and the exchange of information between SAP, by way of SAP Coverage Counsel, and the SAP Insurers shall not affect any privilege or attorney work-product protection that may apply to such information, or the protections granted by the Protective Order.
