1. If a dealership agreement is terminated by cancellation or nonrenewal, the supplier must repurchase equipment and parts in the dealer's inventory. The repurchase is subject to the following conditions:
a. The supplier must pay to the dealer or credit the dealer's account with one hundred percent of the net cost of all unused complete equipment including attachments. The equipment must be in new condition and purchased by the dealership from the supplier within twenty-four months preceding notification by either party of an intent to terminate the contract.
b. The supplier must pay to the dealer or credit the dealer's account with ninety percent of the net price for repair parts, including superseded parts listed in the price lists or catalogs in use by the supplier on the date of termination. The supplier shall also pay the dealer or credit the dealer's account with five percent of the net price on the date of termination on all parts returned for the dealer's handling, packing, and loading of the parts to be returned to the supplier. However, the supplier is not required to pay or credit the five percent if the supplier elects to perform the handling, packing, and loading.
2. Upon payment or allowance of a credit to the dealer's account as required in this section, the title to the repurchased equipment is transferred to the supplier making the repurchase, and the supplier may take immediate possession of the repurchased equipment.
3. The supplier must make payment or allowance of a credit as required under this section not later than ninety days from the date that the supplier takes possession of the repurchased equipment.
4. This section does not require repurchase from the dealer of repair parts which have a limited storage life or are otherwise subject to deterioration, including but not limited to rubber items, gaskets, and batteries. This section also does not require repurchase from the dealer of parts in broken or damaged packages, single repair parts priced as a set of two or more items, or repair parts which because of their condition are not resalable as new parts without new packaging or reconditioning.
