How would you interpret rules #2 and #3 here below?

Customers who have an expired SnS must pay reinstatement fees to purchase supported upgrades.
Reinstatement fees are based on the following:
1. The applicable SnS fees for the current contract term, plus
2. The fees that would have been paid for the period of time that the customer’s SnS contract was not active, plus
3. A 20 percent fee on the sum of the fees in #1 and #2 listed above
In cases where support and subscription has expired for an extended period, purchasing a new license may be more
cost-effective than reinstating the expired services.

For me it is clear, this is blackmail and very disappointing from VMware 😦
