EX-10.2 3 exhibit102-continuingguara.htm EXHIBIT 10.2 Exhibit
THIS CONTINUING GUARANTY (this “Guaranty”) is entered into as of June 24, 2019, by AIR T, INC. (the “Guarantor”) in favor of and for the benefit of OLD NATIONAL BANK (the “Lender”).
Pursuant to a Master Loan Agreement dated as of the date hereof (such agreement, as amended, revised, supplemented or restated from time to time, including, but not limited to, by Supplements thereto, the “Master Loan Agreement”) by and among Contrail Aviation Support, LLC (“CAS”), Contrail Aviation Leasing, LLC (“CAL”, and together with CAS, each a “Borrower,” and collectively, the “Borrowers”) and Lender, Lender has agreed to make and continue certain financial accommodations to Borrowers, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Master Loan Agreement.
Lender requires, as a condition to entering into the Master Loan Agreement, that Guarantor execute and deliver this Guaranty in favor of Lender, and the parties intend that this Guaranty supersedes any and all other guarantees from Guarantor to Lender in connection with loans made by Lender to one or both of the Borrowers.
In consideration of the Recitals and to induce Lender to enter into the Master Loan Agreement, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Guarantor hereby agrees as follows for the benefit of Lender.
Certain Defined Terms. Words not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings assigned them in the Master Loan Agreement. As used in this Guaranty, the following terms shall have the following meanings unless the context otherwise requires:
“Bank Documents” means the Master Loan Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents.
“Guaranty” means this Guaranty, as it may be amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time.
“Indebtedness” means all of the principal amount outstanding from time to time and at any one or more times, accrued unpaid interest thereon and all collection costs and legal expenses related thereto permitted by law, reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from any and all debts, liabilities and obligations of every nature or form, now existing or hereafter arising or acquired, that Borrowers individually or collectively or interchangeably with others, owes or will owe Lender. “Indebtedness” includes, without limitation, loans, advances, debts, overdraft indebtedness, credit card indebtedness, lease obligations, liabilities and obligations under any interest rate protection agreements or foreign currency exchange agreements or commodity price protection agreements, other obligations, and liabilities of any Borrower, and any present or future judgments against any Borrower, future advances, loans or transactions that renew, extend, modify, refinance, consolidate or substitute these debts, liabilities and obligations whether: voluntarily or involuntarily incurred; due or to become due by their terms or acceleration; absolute or contingent; liquidated or unliquidated; determined or undetermined; direct or indirect; primary or secondary in nature or arising from a guaranty or surety; secured or unsecured; joint or several; evidenced by a negotiable or non-negotiable instrument or writing; originated by Lender or another or others; barred or unenforceable against Borrowers for any reason whatsoever; for any transactions that may be voidable for any reason (such as infancy, insanity, ultra vires or otherwise); and originated then reduced or extinguished and then afterwards increased or reinstated.
“Indebtedness” also includes any and all costs and expenses incurred by Lender following an Event of Default associated with any commercially reasonable efforts, whether successful or not, for the recovery, delivery to Lender, sale or other disposition of any Collateral securing any of the Indebtedness, including, but not limited to, Collateral in foreign countries (collectively, “Collateral Recovery Costs”); provided, however, that while Collateral Recovery Costs include all costs, fees, and expenses, including attorney’s fees, associated with the recovery, repossession or other similar efforts to retrieve Lender’s Collateral, neither Collateral Recovery Costs nor Guaranty Collection Costs shall include any costs and fees associated with obtaining replacement Collateral.
“payment in full”, “paid in full” or any similar term means payment in full of the Indebtedness, including all principal, interest, costs, fees and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) of Lender and all affiliates of Lender as required under the Bank Documents.
References to “Sections” and “subsections” shall be to Sections and subsections, respectively, of this Guaranty unless otherwise specifically provided.
In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the terms, conditions and provisions of this Guaranty and the terms, conditions and provisions of the Master Loan Agreement, the terms, conditions and provisions of this Guaranty shall prevail.
Continuing Guaranty. THIS IS A “CONTINUING GUARANTY” UNDER WHICH GUARANTOR AGREES TO GUARANTY THE FULL AND PUNCTUAL PAYMENT, PERFORMANCE AND SATISFACTION OF THE INDEBTEDNESS OF BORROWERS, OR ANY ONE OR MORE OF THEM, TO LENDER, NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING OR ACQUIRED ON A CONTINUING BASIS. ACCORDINGLY, ANY PAYMENTS MADE ON THE INDEBTEDNESS WILL NOT DISCHARGE OR DIMINISH GUARANTOR’S OBLIGATIONS AND LIABILITY UNDER THIS GUARANTY FOR ANY REMAINING AND SUCCEEDING INDEBTEDNESS EVEN WHEN ALL OR PART OF THE OUTSTANDING INDEBTEDNESS MAY BE A ZERO BALANCE FROM TIME TO TIME.
Impact on Other Guaranties. This Guaranty supersedes and revokes any and all previous guarantees issued by the Guarantor to the Lender.
Guaranty of Payment, not Collection. For good and valuable consideration, Guarantor absolutely and unconditionally guaranties full and punctual payment and satisfaction of the Indebtedness of Borrowers to Lender when due, whether at stated maturity or by acceleration or otherwise. This is a guaranty of payments when due and not of collection, so Lender can enforce this Guaranty against Guarantor even when Lender has not exhausted Lender’s remedies against anyone else obligated to pay the Indebtedness or against any Collateral securing the Indebtedness, this Guaranty or any other guaranty of the Indebtedness. Guarantor will make any payments to Lender or its order, on demand, in legal tender of the United States of America, in same-day funds, without set-off or deduction or counterclaim.
Conditional Limitation of Liability. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Guaranty, Guarantor’s aggregate liability under this Guaranty will, at all times, be equal to the sum of the following:
One Million Six Hundred Thousand Dollars ($1,600,000.00); plus
Guaranty Collection Costs pursuant to Section 2.10 below; plus
Collateral Recovery Costs
(collectively, the “Liability Cap”).
Payment by Guarantor; Application of Payments. Guarantor hereby agrees, in furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right which Lender may have at law or in equity against Guarantor by virtue hereof, that upon the failure of either Borrower to pay any of the Indebtedness when and as the same shall become clue, whether at stated maturity, by required prepayment, declaration, acceleration, demand or otherwise (including amounts that would become due but for the operation of the automatic stay under Section 362(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, 11 U.S.C. § 362(a)), but subject to extension to account for any applicable cure periods, Guarantor will upon demand pay, or cause to be paid, in cash, to Lender an amount equal to the sum of the unpaid principal amount of all Indebtedness then due as aforesaid, accrued and unpaid interest on such Indebtedness (including interest which, but for the filing of a petition in bankruptcy with respect to any Borrower, would have accrued on such Indebtedness, whether or not a claim is allowed against such Borrower for such interest in the related bankruptcy proceeding) and all other Indebtedness then owed to Lender as aforesaid. All such payments shall be applied promptly from time to time by Lender to the Indebtedness in the manner determined by Lender in its sole discretion.
Guarantor’s liability under this Guaranty will only be reduced by sums actually paid by Guarantor under this Guaranty, but will not be reduced by sums from any other source, including, but not limited to, sums realized from any Collateral securing the Indebtedness or this Guaranty, or payments by anyone other than Guarantor, or reductions by operation of law, judicial order or equitable principles. Lender has the sole and absolute discretion to determine how sums shall be applied among guaranties of the Indebtedness.
Liability of Guarantor Absolute. Guarantor agrees that his obligations hereunder are irrevocable, absolute, independent and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance which constitutes a legal or equitable discharge of a guarantor or surety other than payment in full of the Indebtedness. In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, Guarantor agrees as follows:
This Guaranty is a guaranty of payment when due and not of collectability.
Lender may enforce this Guaranty upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under the Master Loan Agreement or any other Bank Document notwithstanding the existence of any dispute between any Borrower and Lender with respect to the existence of such Event of Default.
The obligations of Guarantor hereunder are independent of the obligations of Borrowers under the Bank Documents and the obligations of any other guarantor of the obligations of Borrowers under the Bank Documents, and a separate action or actions may be brought and prosecuted against Guarantor whether or not any action is brought against any Borrower or any other guarantor and whether or not any Borrower is joined in any such action or actions.
Payment by Guarantor of a portion, but not all, of the Indebtedness shall in no way limit, affect, modify or abridge Guarantor’s liability for any portion of the Indebtedness which has not been paid.
Lender, upon such terms as it deems appropriate, without notice or demand and without affecting the validity or enforceability of this Guaranty or giving rise to any reduction, limitation, impairment, discharge or termination of Guarantor’s liability hereunder, from time to time may (i) renew, extend, accelerate, increase the rate of interest on, or otherwise change the time, place, manner or terms of payment of the Indebtedness; (ii) settle, compromise, release or discharge, or accept or refuse any offer of performance with respect to, or substitutions for, the Indebtedness or any agreement relating thereto and/or subordinate the payment of the same to the payment of any other obligations; (iii) request and accept other guaranties of the Indebtedness and take and hold security for the payment of this Guaranty or the Indebtedness; (iv) release, surrender, exchange, substitute, compromise, settle, rescind, waive, alter, subordinate or modify, with or without consideration, any security for payment of the Indebtedness, any other guaranties of the Indebtedness, or any other obligation of any person with respect to the Indebtedness; (v) enforce and apply any security now or hereafter held by or for the benefit of Lender in respect of this Guaranty or the Indebtedness and direct the order or manner of sale thereof, or exercise any other right or remedy that Lender may have against any such security, in each case as Lender in its discretion may determine consistent with the Master Loan Agreement and any applicable security agreement, including foreclosure on any such security pursuant to one or more judicial or nonjudicial sales and even though such action operates to impair or extinguish any right of reimbursement or subrogation or other right or remedy of Guarantor against any Borrower or any security for the Indebtedness; and (vi) exercise any other rights available to it under the Bank Documents at law or in equity.
This Guaranty and the obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall be valid and enforceable and shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment, discharge or termination for any reason (other than payment in full of the Indebtedness), including the occurrence of any of the following, whether or not Guarantor shall have had notice or knowledge of any of them: (i) any failure or omission to assert or enforce any agreement or election not to assert or enforce, or the stay or enjoining, by order of court, by operation of law or otherwise, of the exercise or enforcement of, any claim or demand or any right, power or remedy (whether arising under the Bank Documents, at law, in equity or otherwise) with respect to the Indebtedness or any agreement relating thereto, or with respect to any other guaranty of or security for the payment of the Indebtedness; (ii) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of, or any consent to departure from, any of the terms or provisions (including provisions relating to events of default) of the Master Loan Agreement, any other Bank Document or any agreement or instrument executed pursuant thereto, or of any other guaranty or security for the Indebtedness, in each case whether or not in accordance with the terms of the Master Loan Agreement or such Bank Document or any agreement relating to such other guaranty or security; (iii) the Indebtedness, or any agreement relating thereto, at any time being found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable in any respect; (iv) the application of payments received from any source to the payment of indebtedness other than the Indebtedness, even though Lender might have elected to apply such payment to any part or all of the Indebtedness; (v) Lender’s consent to the change, reorganization or termination of the corporate structure or existence of any Borrower and to any corresponding restructuring of the Indebtedness; (vi) any failure to perfect or continue perfection of a security interest in any Collateral which secures any of the Indebtedness; (vii) any defenses, set-offs or counterclaims (other than a defense of payment or performance) which any Borrower may allege or assert against Lender in respect of the Indebtedness, including failure of consideration, breach of warranty, statute of frauds, and usury; and (viii) any other act or thing or omission, or delay to do any other act or thing, which may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of Guarantor as an obligor in respect of the Indebtedness.
Waivers by Guarantor. Guarantor hereby waives, for the benefit of Lender:
any right to require Lender, as a condition of payment or performance by Guarantor, to (i) proceed against either Borrower, any other guarantor of the Indebtedness or any other person; (ii) proceed against or exhaust any security held from any Borrower, any such other guarantor or any other person; (iii) proceed against or have resort to any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of Lender in favor of any Borrower or any other person; or (iv) pursue any other remedy in the power of Lender whatsoever;
any defense arising by reason of the incapacity, lack of authority or any disability or other defense of any Borrower including any defense based on or arising out of the lack of validity or the unenforceability of the Indebtedness or any agreement or instrument relating thereto or by reason of the cessation of the liability of any Borrower from any cause other than payment in full of the Indebtedness;
any defense based upon any statute or rule of law which provides that the obligation of a surety must be neither larger in amount nor in other respects more burdensome than that of the principal;
any defense based upon Lender’s errors or omissions in the administration of the Indebtedness, except behavior which amounts to bad faith, recklessness, or willful misconduct; and
(i) any principles or provisions of law, statutory or otherwise, which are or might be in conflict with the terms of this Guaranty and any legal or equitable discharge of Guarantor’s obligations hereunder; (ii) any rights to set-offs, recoupments and counterclaims; and (iii) promptness, diligence and any requirement that Lender protect, secure, perfect or insure any security interest or lien or any property subject thereto;
notices, demands, presentments, protests, notices of protest, notices of dishonor and notices of any action or inaction, including acceptance of this Guaranty, notices of default under the Master Loan Agreement, the other Bank Documents or any agreement or instrument related thereto, notices of any renewal, extension or modification of the Indebtedness or any agreement related thereto, notices of any extension of credit to any Borrower and notices of any of the matters referred to in Section 2.6 and any right to consent to any thereof; and
any defenses or benefits that may be derived from or afforded by law which limit the liability of or exonerate Guarantor or sureties, or which may conflict with the terms of this Guaranty.
Guarantor’s Rights of Subrogation, Contribution, Etc. Until the Indebtedness shall have been indefeasibly paid in full, Guarantor may not exercise any rights of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement or indemnification that Guarantor may have against any Borrower or against any Collateral or security, and any rights of contribution that Guarantor may have against any other guarantor of the Indebtedness. Any rights of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement or indemnification that Guarantor may have against any Borrower or against any Collateral or security, and any rights of contribution that Guarantor may have against any other guarantor, shall be junior and subordinate to any rights Lender may have against either Borrower, to all right, title and interest Lender may have in any such Collateral or security and to any right Lender may have against such other guarantor. If any amount shall be paid to Guarantor on account of any such subrogation, reimbursement, indemnification or contribution rights at any time when all Indebtedness shall not have been paid in full, such amount shall be held in trust for Lender and shall forthwith be paid over to Lender to be credited and applied against the Indebtedness, whether matured or unmatured, in accordance with the terms hereof.
Subordination of Other Obligations. Any indebtedness of any Borrower now or hereafter held by Guarantor is hereby subordinated in right of payment to the Indebtedness, and except as otherwise set forth in any Subordination Agreement entered into by Guarantor for the benefit of Lender, any such indebtedness collected or received by Guarantor shall be held in trust for Lender and shall forthwith be paid over to Lender to be credited and applied against the Indebtedness but without affecting, impairing or limiting in any manner the liability of Guarantor under any other provision of this Guaranty.
Expenses. Guarantor agrees to pay, or cause to be paid, on demand, and to save Lender harmless against liability for, any and all costs and expenses (including reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel and allocated costs of internal counsel) incurred or expended by Lender in connection with the enforcement of or preservation of any rights under this Guaranty (collectively, “Guaranty Collection Costs”).
Authority of Guarantor or Borrowers. It is not necessary for Lender to inquire into the capacity or power of Guarantor or Borrowers or the officers, directors or any agents acting or purporting to act on behalf of any of them.
Financial Condition of Borrowers. Lender’s loans to any Borrower may be continued from time to time without notice to or authorization from Guarantor regardless of the financial or other condition of such Borrower at the time of any such grant or continuation. Lender shall not have any obligation to disclose or discuss with Guarantor its assessment, or Guarantor’s assessment, of the financial condition of any Borrower. Guarantor has adequate means to obtain information from Borrowers on a continuing basis concerning the financial condition of each Borrower and its ability to perform its obligations under the Bank Documents, and Guarantor assumes the responsibility for being and keeping informed of the financial condition of Borrowers and of all circumstances bearing upon the risk of nonpayment of the Indebtedness. Guarantor hereby waives and relinquishes any duty on the part of Lender to disclose any matter, fact or thing relating to the business, operations or conditions of Borrowers now known or hereafter known by Lender.
Rights Cumulative. The rights, powers and remedies given to Lender by this Guaranty are cumulative and shall be in addition to and independent of all rights, powers and remedies given to Lender by virtue of any statute or rule of law or in any of the other Bank Documents or any agreement between Guarantor and Lender or between any Borrower and Lender. Any forbearance or failure to exercise, and any delay by Lender in exercising, any right, power or remedy hereunder shall not impair any such right, power or remedy or be construed to be a waiver thereof, nor shall it preclude the further exercise of any such right, power or remedy.
Bankruptcy; Post-Petition Interest; Reinstatement of Guaranty.
The obligations of Guarantor under this Guaranty shall not be reduced, limited, impaired, discharged, deferred, suspended or terminated by any proceeding, voluntary or involuntary, involving the bankruptcy, insolvency, receivership, reorganization, liquidation or arrangement of any Borrower or by any defense which such Borrower may have by reason of the order, decree or decision of any court or administrative body resulting from any such proceeding.
Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that any interest on any portion of the Indebtedness which accrues after the commencement of any proceeding referred to in clause (a) above (or, if interest on any portion of the Indebtedness ceases to accrue by operation of law by reason of the commencement of said proceeding, such interest as would have accrued on such portion of the Indebtedness if said proceedings had not been commenced) shall be included in the Indebtedness because it is the intention of Guarantor and Lender that the Indebtedness which are guarantied by Guarantor pursuant to this Guaranty should be determined without regard to any rule of law or order which may relieve any Borrower of any portion of such Indebtedness. Guarantor will permit any trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, debtor in possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors or similar person to pay Lender, or allow the claim of Lender in respect of, any such interest accruing after the date on which such proceeding is commenced.
In the event that all or any portion of the Indebtedness are paid by Borrowers, the obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall continue and remain in full force and effect or be reinstated, as the case may be, in the event that all or any part of such payment(s) are rescinded or recovered directly or indirectly from Lender as a preference, fraudulent transfer or otherwise, and any such payments which are so rescinded or recovered shall constitute Indebtedness for all purposes under this Guaranty.
Set Off. In addition to any other rights Lender may have under law or in equity, if any amount shall at any time be due and owing by Guarantor to Lender under this Guaranty, Lender is authorized at any time or from time to time, without notice (any such notice being hereby expressly waived), to set off and to appropriate and to apply any and all deposits (general or special, including indebtedness evidenced by certificates of deposit, whether matured or unmatured) and any other indebtedness of Lender owing to Guarantor and any other property of Guarantor held by Lender to or for the credit or the account of Guarantor against and on account of the Indebtedness and liabilities of Guarantor to Lender under this Guaranty.
Financial Statements. To the extent such information is not publicly and readily available, and to the extent not prohibited by applicable law, Guarantor agrees to furnish to Lender within thirty (30) days of the direction of the Lender to do so, but in any case, no less frequently than annually, a financial statement of Guarantor listing all assets and liabilities (including contingent liabilities) of Guarantor, and the resulting net worth, signed and dated by Guarantor, in form, detail and completeness acceptable to Lender in its sole discretion from time to time. In addition, as soon as available, but in any event not later than ten (10) days after filing copies of Guarantor’s Federal income tax return as filed with the Internal Revenue Service, signed by Guarantor, complete in all respects including all statements, schedules (including any Schedule K-ls related to income or losses reported), forms and attachments thereto. In addition to any other financial reporting requirements of Guarantor to Lender, Guarantor agrees to furnish to Lender, at times and frequencies reasonably determined appropriate by Lender from time to time, any other information or reports with respect to Guarantor’s financial condition.

Severability. In case any provision in or obligation under this Guaranty shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions or obligations, or of such provision or obligation in any other jurisdiction, shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.
Amendments and Waivers. No amendment, modification, termination or waiver of any provision of this Guaranty, and no consent to any departure by Guarantor therefrom, shall in any event be effective without the written concurrence of Lender and Guarantor. Any such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which it was given.
