Modification: IBM Power Systems trade-in program

Announcement Letter Number 313-003

January 15, 2013

Effective January 15, 2013, the IBM® Power Systems™ trade-in program has been modified.

The following changes are being made with this announcement:

All other terms and conditions remain unchanged.

This announcement supersedes Announcement Letter 312-136, dated December 4, 2012.

Value proposition

This offer can be used as an incentive to motivate a customer to replace old IBM or Competitive Server Technology with newer IBM servers.

The offer

If you acquire an eligible new IBM Power Systems server (Replacement Machine) and trade in one or more designated IBM and/or non-IBM systems (Replaced Machines), you can receive a trade-in credit for each Replaced Machine you trade in.

There is a maximum total trade-in credit amount per Replacement Machine that is dependent upon the configuration of the Replacement Machine.

The amount of the trade-in credit for each Replaced Machine represents a combination of the Fair Market Value (FMV) of the Replaced Machine and an additional incentive.

The number of Replaced Machines that can be traded in per eligible new Replacement Machine is limited by the maximum trade-in credit amount of the Replacement Machine. Once the maximum trade-in credit amount has been reached, additional machines will not be accepted for trade-in.

For a list of Replacement and Replaced Machines, and applicable trade-in credits, refer to the Qualifying/Eligible products section.

Start and/or end dates

In order to qualify, IBM records must show IBM Replaced Machine(s) (if applicable) as installed in a customer location within your Enterprise as of January 14, 2013.

The Date of Installation of the eligible new Replacement Machine, as defined in the IBM Customer Agreement, must occur on or after January 15, 2013.

Contracts required for the trade-in of the Replaced Machine(s) must be received by IBM on or before the Date of Installation of the eligible new Replacement Machine.

IBM must be contacted to schedule pickup of IBM Replaced Machine(s) no later than nine (9) months following the Date of Installation of the eligible new Replacement Machine.

Bills of lading (proof of shipment) for non-IBM Replaced Machine(s) shipped to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form" must be dated no later than nine (9) months following the Date of Installation of the eligible new Replacement Machine.

Where is it available?

This program is available only in the United States and its territories.

Additional information/conditions

Upon shipment of the Replacement Machine, you will be billed the single unit purchase price less any applicable discounts or allowances for which you qualify. You will receive your trade-in credit(s) after each Replaced Machine has been returned to IBM and/or returned to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form", and validated against the information included on the ICA Supplement for Machine(s) Trade-in Transaction (Z125-5459).

Participation in this trade-in program is in lieu of trade-in activity under any other trade-in program.

IBM reserves the right to modify or withdraw this program at any time.

This program is subject to the terms and conditions of any applicable Agreements.

FMV of a Replaced Machine

To determine the FMV of a Replaced Machine, contact your IBM Global Financing (IGF) representative with the configuration details of the Replaced Machine and request an IGF retail quote. You are not required to contact IGF in order to receive the trade-in credit(s) listed in this announcement, nor will the trade-in credits listed in this announcement change based upon any retail quote provided by IGF.

Trade-in of IBM Replaced Machines

Your responsibilities

Have the IBM Replaced Machine(s) installed in a qualifying location within your Enterprise as of January 14, 2013.

Install the Replacement Machine in the same Enterprise where the Replaced Machines were installed within the United States and its territories.

Have clear title to the Replaced Machines, free of any encumbrances, at the time they are picked up by IBM's designated carrier.

The lessee of IBM Replaced Machines financed by IBM Global Financing must purchase the Replaced Machines and pay all related charges before returning them to IBM.

IBM Replaced Machines currently under an Installation Payment Agreement (IPA) or an Installment Payment Master Agreement (IPMA) must be paid for in full before returning them to IBM.

Contact your IBM representative to schedule pickup of IBM Replaced Machines no later than nine (9) months following the Date of Installation of the Replacement Machine. IBM Replaced Machines must be available for pickup by IBM's carrier when you contact your IBM representative.

IBM will not pay for shipping costs if any other means of return is used.

If you are returning more than one IBM Replaced Machine, the machines do not need to be returned to IBM at the same time, as long as they are available for pickup and IBM is contacted to schedule pickup within nine (9) months of the Date of Installation of the Replacement Machine.

Return the IBM Replaced Machines, in the same configuration (machine type, model, and all features) as installed as of January 14, 2013.

Remove any alterations, non-IBM attachments, and data from IBM Replaced Machines. Any IBM service charges incurred in this process or in preparing the machines for pickup are your responsibility.

Disconnect the IBM Replaced Machines before pickup. All associated items such as cables, logic manuals, kickplates, terminators, and power cords should be packed with the Replaced Machines. It is not necessary for IBM Service to pack the machines for shipment. If you request that IBM prepare the machines for shipment, you will be billed for this service.

Ensure that "IBM Power Systems trade-in program Code CT4" appears on both the return shipping label and the trucking company's bill of lading. Also ensure that each server is labeled with an 8.5x11" sheet stating: "IBM Power Systems trade-in program Code CT4". If "IBM Power Systems trade-in program Code CT4" does not appear on the shipping label, the bill of lading, and the labeling on each server, you may be charged for the return and disposal of IBM Replaced Machines.

Request that maintenance coverage, if any, and software licenses installed on the IBM Replaced Machines be discontinued or transferred, as appropriate.

Ensure that IBM Replaced Machines are in working order on the day they are picked up.

IBM's responsibilities

Make arrangements to remove the IBM Replaced Machines upon receiving your request.

All shipping and storage costs associated with the return of IBM Replaced Machines to IBM, exclusive of any charges for special handling required to remove the IBM Replaced Machines. Special handling includes, but is not limited to:

Credit you the trade-in credit amount specified for IBM Replaced Machines after receiving verification that IBM Replaced Machines have been picked up.

Trade-in of non-IBM Replaced Machines

Your responsibilities

Upon receipt of a Supplement that includes non-IBM Replaced Machines, IBM Customer Support Operations will send you an "IGF OEM trade-in return form" via e-mail. Complete the "IGF OEM trade-in return form" for all non-IBM Replaced Machines.

Completed forms must be sent, upon shipment of non-IBM Replaced Machines to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form", to:

(E-mail addresses of the individuals listed above are provided on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form.")

Have clear title to the non-IBM Replaced Machines, free of any encumbrances, at the time they are shipped to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form".

Prior to shipping your non-IBM Replaced Machines to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form", contact your IBM representative to re-confirm the eligibility of the Replaced Machine (bills of lading for machines shipped to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form" must be dated no later than nine (9) months following the Date of Installation of the Replacement Machine).

If you are returning more than one non-IBM Replaced Machine, the machines do not need to be sent to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form" at the same time, as long as they are sent within nine (9) months of the Date of Installation of the Replacement Machine.

Remove any data from non-IBM Replaced Machines.

All associated items such as cables, logic manuals, kickplates, terminators, and power cords should be packed with the non-IBM Replaced Machines.

Ensure that "IBM Power Systems trade-in program" appears on both the return shipping label and the trucking company's bill of lading.

You must keep the bill of lading as proof of timely shipment in case the estimated date of delivery is missed.

You are responsible for all costs incurred in shipping non-IBM Replaced Machines to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form", as well as preparing non-IBM Replaced Machines for shipment. If you request that IBM prepare the machines for shipment, you will be billed for this service.

Ensure that non-IBM Replaced Machines are in working order on the day they are shipped to the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form".

IBM's responsibilities

Credit you for the non-IBM Replaced Machine after receiving verification that the non-IBM Replaced Machine received by the company identified on the "IGF OEM trade-in return form" was shipped within the published time frame of the program, is the machine identified on the ICA Supplement, its attributes agree with those listed on the Supplement, and it is in operable condition.
