Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all such payments shall be made to the Lender in immediately available funds not later than 12:00 noon (East Coast time) on the date specified herein. All amounts received by the Lender after such time on any date shall be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day and any applicable interest or fees shall continue to accrue.
