  • 2. Akea Prosperity PlanThe Akea Prosperity Plan provides you with many ways to earn both part time immediate income as well as long-term,residual income. Each week Akea pays out a guaranteed fifty percent (50%) of the total company CommissionableVolume (CV). This amount is paid to qualified Akea Independent Consultants in commissions and bonuses.Here is a summary of the ways you can receive compensation.Prosperity Plan Overview1. Customers a. Retail Profit Quickly earn profits by selling Akea products to customers at retail price. You can sell directly or refer customers to your Akea replicated website to make their purchases. All retail volume is counted towards your Personal Volume (PV). b. Preferred Customer Bonus (PCB) Akea offers a Preferred Customer program that is unique and highly rewarding. Preferred Customers are afforded a significant discount for enrolling in a monthly autoship program. Active Consultants receive 40% in commissions on their Preferred Customers Commissionable Volume (CV). 20% of Preferred Customer Commissionable Volume (CV) is applied toward Personal Volume (PV), flows into the Team Volume (TV), and is used for all other Prosperity Plan calculations. Example: Your Preferred Customer purchases two cans of Essentials for $110/100 CV. You will receive a $40 PCB (40% of 100 CV). 20 CV is applied to your Personal Volume (PV) as well as the Team Volume (TV).2. Fast Start Bonus (FSB) Earn 15% - 20% of the Commissionable Volume (CV) on the enrollment order of everyone you personally sponsor. The amount of the FSB is dependent on your Personal Volume (PV). • 100 PV = 20% FSB • 50 PV = 15% FSB 40% of the Commissionable Volume (CV) on FSB orders flows into the Team Volume (TV) and is used for all other Prosperity Plan calculations. Example: If an enrollment pack has 200 CV, you as the sponsor would receive $40 (if active at 100 PV). 80 CV is applied to Team Volume (TV).3. Matching Fast Start Bonus (MFSB) It is important as an Akea Independent Consultant to help those whom you have personally sponsored. Akea will reward you with a special bonus for this effort called the Matching Fast Start Bonus. When one of your personally sponsored Consultants sponsors a new Akea Independent Consultant, you earn a 50% match of the FSB they receive. You must be at 100 PV to qualify for MFSB. Example: You sponsor Eric. Eric in turn sponsors Joyce. Joyce orders a 200 CV package to start her Akea business. Eric would receive a $40 FSB for Joyces order. You would receive a $20 MFSB for Joyces order which is 50% of Erics FSB. This example assumes that you and Eric both qualify with 100 PV. If Eric only qualified with 50 PV and you qualified with 100 PV, Eric would receive $30 FSB and you would receive $15 MFSB.4. Team Bonus and Team Leader Bonus a. Team Bonus (TB) Success in the Akea Prosperity Plan requires team work and duplication. The Team Bonus has been designed specifically to facilitate and reward you for these efforts. Simply put, enroll 2 who enroll 2 and duplicate! You earn the TB when you ( ) sponsor 2 ( ) who each sponsor 2 ( ) (based on personal sponsorship tree) within your first 4 full weeks of joining Akea.PLAN EFFECTIVE DATE: MAY 9, 2012©2012 AKEA LLC AKEA PROSPERITY PLAN PAGE 1 OF 8
  • 3. The amount the TB pays is dependent on your Personal Volume (PV). • 100 PV = $100 TB • 50 PV = $25TB Figure 1 Note: You can earn the TB only 1 time. Everyone (all 7) must be Active with at least 50 PV. b. Team Leader Bonus (TLB) The Team Leader Bonus rewards you for teaching the duplication process. You ( ) earn the TLB every time you help one of your personally sponsored consultants ( ) achieve the Team Bonus. The amount the TLB pays is dependent on your Personal Volume (PV). • 100 PV = $100 TLB • 50 PV = $25 TLB Figure 2 Note: There is no limit to how many times you can earn the TLB. You earn it every time one of your personally sponsored consultants achieves the TB.PLAN EFFECTIVE DATE: MAY 9, 2012©2012 AKEA LLC AKEA PROSPERITY PLAN PAGE 2 OF 8
  • 4. 5. Team Commissions The real potential of the Akea Prosperity Plan opens up once you begin to build a team and start earning Team Commissions. Team Commissions are a residual override paid on the team of Consultants in your placement tree. This organization, based on a "binary" (meaning 2), is comprised of two legs, your pay leg and your strong leg (the pay leg has the lesser amount of volume and the strong leg has the greater amount of volume). Those under you will include, but are not limited to, everyone you personally sponsored and those they sponsor. You, your sponsor, or anyone else above you in the placement genealogy may place Consultants in your organization in either one of your legs (known as spillover). Your Team Volume (TV) is the sum total of the Personal Volume (PV) of all Consultants in your placement tree. You are eligible to receive Team Commissions of 10-% to 20% (see Table 1 for details) once you are Active with 50 PV and qualified (personally sponsor someone on your left and right legs in your placement tree and they are each Active with at least 50 PV). Team Volume (TV) will accumulate and carry over from week to week provided you remain Active. When you accumulate at least 300 Pay Leg Volume (PLV) and Strong Leg volume, Team Commissions will be paid. Once paid, any leftover volume on your strong leg will carry over provided you remain Active. If you Figure 3 do not remain Active during a qualification period the volume on both the Pay Leg and Strong Leg will be reset to zero. Example: Everyone in Figure 3 has 100 PV this week. You have 700 TV on your right leg and 400 TV on your left leg. You receive a Team Commission of $40 (10% of the 400 Pay Leg Volume [PLV]). You may earn up to $25,000 per week in Team Commissions. Team Commissions Weekly Payout Earning Rank % Potential Consultant n/a n/a Associate (A) Sr. Associate (SA) 10% $1,500 Director (DIR) Sr. Director (SD) 12% $2,000 Executive Director (ED) 14% $2,500 Regional Director (RD) 16% $5,000 National Marketing Director (NMD) 18% $10,000 Global Marketing Director (GMD) 20% $25,000 Table 16. Matching Bonus (MB) You can earn a Matching Bonus on any Akea Consultant you personally sponsored, their personally sponsored Consultants, and so on for up to 5 generations—no matter which placement leg theyre in. The MB pays up to 20% of each generations Team Commissions. Matching Bonus: Weekly earning Paid on Generations of Senior Director and Higher potential per # Generations Paid 1 2 3 4 5 individual being matched Executive Director (ED) 20% $500 Regional Director (RD) 20% 20% $1,500 National Marketing Director (NMD) 20% 20% 20% $3,000 Global Marketing Director (GMD) 20% 20% 20% 20% 20% $5,000 Table 2 The MB is determined by generations in your personal sponsorship tree. A Senior Director Generation is the basis upon which the Matching Bonus is paid. The first Senior Director Generation is the first Paid-As Senior Director or higher encountered inPLAN EFFECTIVE DATE: MAY 9, 2012©2012 AKEA LLC AKEA PROSPERITY PLAN PAGE 3 OF 8

Leadership Pool Akea guarantees a weekly payout of 50% of total company Commissionable Volume (CV). The Leadership Pool is based on a floating percentage and is distributed weekly. The percentage is determined after all other commissions and bonuses in the Prosperity Plan are calculated and is funded with whatever is available up to the 50%. Those who wish to participate must qualify by being Paid-As a Regional Director or higher. Each participant will receive a prorated share of the pool based on his or her Pay Leg Volume (PLV) compared to the total combined Pay Leg Volume of all those participating in the pool that week. For example, if the total combined Pay Leg Volume (PLV) of all those participating in the pool equals $200,000 in the week, and Sam has a Pay Leg Volume (PLV) of $4,000, he would receive 2% of the Leadership Pool that week.8. Expense Allowance Paid-As Regional Directors and above are eligible to receive the following Expense Allowance for use in building their Akea business. • Regional Director ......................... $ 500/month • National Marketing Director......... $ 750/month • Global Marketing Director ............ $1,000/month Expense Allowance will be paid weekly based upon the following formula: Weekly Expense Allowance = Month Expense Allowance * 12/52 Note: To receive the Expense Allowance you must be qualified at applicable title for 6 out of 8 rolling weeks.9. Founders Club The Founders Club will be an exclusive club reserved for Akeas top performing Consultants. The Founders Club will be limited to 25 members who are eligible to be Paid As Founders. Qualifications for the Founders Club are as follows: • The first 15 Founders Club Members qualified as of March 18, 2012. • The next 5 Founders’ Club Members will qualify by being Paid As Regional Director (RD) for at least 4 out of 8 rolling weeks AND have a minimum of 150 active Consultants in their Pay Leg in each qualifying week. • Akea will set the Founders Club Qualifications for the final 5 spots at its sole discretion. • The granting of Founders’ Club Membership is subject to review and approval by Akea. • A Charter Member is a Founders Club Member who qualified by the commission week ending July 3, 2011. After the initial qualification for the Founders Club, a Consultant will be "Paid-As a Founder" when the Consultants Paid-As Title is at or above his/her Founders Club Qualifications Title in a given commission period. Founders Club Pool • Each rolling 4 weeks that a new company record for Commissionable Volume (CV) is achieved, the Founders Club Pool will be funded with 10% of the difference between the old and the new record, up to 3% of the companys Commissionable Volume (CV) for that commission period. If no Founder qualifies for this pool, the money is flushed (no carryover pool amount). • A Founders Club member will receive a portion of the pool if he/she is qualified to be Paid-As a Founder in that commission period. The Consultants individual percentage of the weekly Founders Club Pool is based on his/her Personal Sponsorship Tree Volume (PSTV) compared to the total of all qualified Founders PSTV. • Once a Founder, if a Consultant is not qualified to be Paid-As a Founder at least four times in a 26 week rolling period, he/she permanently loses his/her ability to participate in the Founders pool but does not lose the status as a Founder (for recognition). • In any week where the Founders Club Pool is paid out, no individual recipient may receive more than 25% of the pool. Any unpaid pool amounts will not be paid out. • Founders Club Pool volume is USA only.PLAN EFFECTIVE DATE: MAY 9, 2012©2012 AKEA LLC AKEA PROSPERITY PLAN PAGE 4 OF 8

  • 8. Definitions Active A Consultant must maintain at least 50 Personal Volume (PV) monthly to be considered Active. If a Consultant is not active, he/she receives no commissions or bonuses. 100 PV is required monthly to be Paid-As a Senior Director or higher. Carry Over Volume Excess or unused Left and/or Right Leg volume is called Carry Over Volume (COV). This occurs when the Team (COV) Commission threshold of 300 PLV is achieved in the weaker leg but there is additional volume in the stronger leg on which the distributor is not paid that week. Carry Over Volume will also occur when the Pay Leg is less than 300 PLV and both legs will accrue Carry Over Volume to the next week. The Commissionable Volume left over at the end of the week in either or both Placement Tree Legs is carried over to the next week provided the Consultant is Active. If a Consultant fails to meet the minimum monthly Active requirement then all Positive COV will be flushed in both legs. When the Team Commissions are paid on the Pay Leg Volume (PLV), an equal amount of the PLV will be subtracted from the Strong Leg Commissionable Volume for Carry Over purposes. Carry over volume will accrue up to 100,000 (one hundred thousand) CV. Commissionable Each inventory item has a Commissionable Volume (CV) assigned to it. All commission percentages apply to Volume (CV) this volume. Pay Leg Volume (PLV) is based on CV. Pay Leg This is the Leg (Placement Tree) with the lesser of total Commissionable Volume (CV) for a Consultant. This will include the Commissionable Volume (CV) and Carry Over Volume (COV) of that Leg. The other leg will be referred to as the Strong Leg. See also the Strong Leg definition. Pay Leg Volume (PLV) The Commissionable Volume (CV) of everyone in a Consultants Pay Leg. In addition, Personal Volume (PV) in excess of 100 PV per week will be added to the Pay Leg Volume (PLV). Personal Sponsorship Your personal sponsorship tree starts with the people you personally sponsor and grows with the ones they Tree sponsor. Personal Sponsorship The Commissionable Volume (CV) of everyone in a Consultants Personal Sponsorship Tree. Tree Volume (PSTV) Personal Volume (PV) The total Commissionable Volume (CV) sold and purchased by a Consultant and his/her personal Customers and Preferred Customers in the current week. Any Personal Volume (PV) in excess of 100 PV will automatically be included in the Consultants Pay Leg Volume (PLV) that week. Placement Tree The genealogy based on a "binary" (meaning 2) that has a Left and Right leg on which the Team Commissions are based. One Leg in the Placement Tree will be the Pay Leg because its Commissionable Volume (CV) will be less than the Strong Leg. The Placement Tree is used ONLY for the calculation of the Pay Leg Volume (PLV) and the Team Commissions. It is NOT used for the leg requirements of each title in the career path. One must have 1 Active personal recruit on the left and 1 Active personal recruit on the right of the Placement Tree to be eligible for Team Commissions. Preferred Customer Preferred Customers are customers who have signed up for Autoship. 20% of the Commissionable Volume (CV) from a Preferred Customer will be applied to the Personal Volume (PV) of the sponsoring Consultant (not 100%). 20% of PC CV will flow into Team Volume (TV). Requalification Policy Badge titles for Executive Director and higher are retained for 52 weeks following any week in which you qualify. For example, if you qualify for your title in the first week of June, you will keep your badge title until the last week of May of next year (assuming 52 weeks). If, prior to the first week of June of next year, you qualify again in the second week of September, you will keep your title until the first week of September of next year (assuming 52 weeks have passed). Title demotions will occur in the 53rd week without qualification. The title that you will be demoted to in that 53rd week is the title that you qualify for in that period. Sr. Director Generation A Senior Director Generation is the basis upon which the Matching Bonus is paid. The first Senior Director Generation is the first Paid-As Senior Director encountered in each leg in a Consultants personal sponsorship tree. The next Paid-As Senior Directors encountered below the first ones in the leg would be considered a 2nd Senior Director Generation. There will often be Consultants who are not Paid-As Senior Directors or above between an upline Consultant and a downline Senior Director. These intervening Consultants are not considered an SD Generation because their Paid-As Title is less than Senior Director. The Senior Director Generation is always based on the Paid-As Title. Strong Leg This is the Leg (Placement Tree) with the greater of total Commissionable Volume (CV) for a Consultant compared to the lesser or Pay Leg that week. This will include the Commissionable Volume (CV) and Carry Over Volume (COV) of that leg. The other leg will typically be referred to as the Pay Leg or Weak Leg. See also the Pay Leg and Carry Over Volume definitions. Team Commissions Once a Consultant accumulates at least 300 Pay Leg Volume (PLV), the Consultant will receive a percentage of their PLV based on their Paid-As Title. See also Carry Over Volume and Pay Leg Volume. Team Volume (TV) The sum total of the Personal Volume (PV) of all Consultants in your placement tree.PLAN EFFECTIVE DATE: MAY 9, 2012©2012 AKEA LLC AKEA PROSPERITY PLAN PAGE 7 OF 8
