How good/bad is this distribution offer clause?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how crappy is this distribution deal? It was offered to me...and I'm scratching my head. Sorry about all the 'stars'. I copied from a pdf.

Looks standard to me. I have rarely seen one that offers different percentages.
What is it you don't like?
