FIRST AMENDED AND RESTATED PROMISSORY NOTE
TERM NOTE B
$18,000,000.00 June 24, 2019
THIS FIRST AMENDED AND RESTATED PROMISSORY NOTE TERM NOTE B (this “Note”) amends and restates the Promissory Note dated September 14, 2018 in the original principal amount of Eighteen Million Dollars ($18,000,000.00) (the “Original Note”) executed by CONTRAIL AVIATION SUPPORT, LLC (“Support”) and CONTRAIL AVIATION LEASING, LLC (“Leasing”, and together with Support, each a “Borrower,” and collectively, the “Borrowers”) in favor of OLD NATIONAL BANK (the “Lender,” and together with Borrowers, collectively the “Parties”). Borrowers and Lender desire to amend and restate the Note in its entirety in order that this Note shall supersede the Original Note.
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, on or before the Term Loan B Maturity Date (as defined in the Master Loan Agreement referred to below), Borrowers, jointly and severally, promise to pay to the order of Lender, or its assignee, the principal sum of Eighteen Million Dollars ($18,000,000.00), or such lesser amount as is shown to be outstanding according to the records of Lender, together with interest on the principal balance outstanding from time to time at such rates and payable at such times as set forth in the Master Loan Agreement (as defined below).
The principal amount of the Loan outstanding from time to time shall bear interest at the variable rate of LIBOR Rate (as defined in the Master Loan Agreement referenced below) plus 3.75% per annum and such rate shall be adjusted on the 14th day of each month.
Payments of both principal and interest are to be made in immediately available funds in lawful currency of the United States of America at the office of Lender, or such other place as the holder hereof shall designate to the undersigned in writing. Unless required by applicable law, and prior to any default being declared, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid interest; then to principal; then to escrow; then to any late charges; and then to any unpaid collection costs. Funds shall be deemed received by Lender on the next business day if not received by 12:00 p.m. local time at the location payments hereunder are to be made.
Borrowers shall make payments of:
(a) Thirty‑five (35) consecutive monthly payments of accrued unpaid interest, beginning October 14, 2018, and payable on the 14th day of each consecutive month thereafter;
Thirty‑six (36) consecutive monthly principal payments of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00) each, beginning October 14, 2018, and payable on the 14th day of each consecutive month thereafter;
(c) a final payment of all outstanding principal and accrued unpaid interest together with such other amounts as shall then be due and owing from Borrowers to Lender under the Term Loan B on the Term Loan B Maturity Date; and
(d) notwithstanding anything to contrary contained herein or in the Master Loan Agreement, Borrowers anticipate making significant principal payments on Term Loan B between July 2019 and November 2019 (the “Anticipated Principal Reduction”). Upon receipt of the Anticipated Principal Reduction, Borrowers may request that Lender recalculate the remaining monthly principal payment amounts based on the outstanding principal balance of Term Loan B after applying the Anticipated Principal Reduction and the remaining amortization. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Borrower may only request one payment re‑calculation adjustment and such request may only be made after Lender has received and applied the required Anticipated Principal Reduction to Term Loan B.
FINAL PAYMENT MATURITY DATE
Notwithstanding anything set forth above, all sums due under this Note, both principal and interest, if not sooner paid, shall be due and payable on September 14, 2021 (“Term Loan B Maturity Date”).
PREPAYMENT; MINIMUM FINANCE CHARGE
Borrowers agree that all loan fees and other prepaid finance charges are earned fully as of the date of the loan and will not be subject to refund upon early payment (whether voluntary or as a result of default), except as otherwise required by law. In any event, even upon full prepayment of this Note, Borrowers understand that Lender is entitled to a minimum finance charge of $95.00. Other than Borrowers’ obligations to pay any minimum finance charge, Borrowers may pay without penalty all or a portion of the amount owed earlier than it is due. Early payments will not, unless agreed to by Lender in writing, relieve Borrowers of Borrowers’ obligation to continue to make payments under the payment schedule. Rather, early payments will reduce the principal balance due and may result in Borrowers making fewer payments. Borrowers agree not to send Lender payments marked “paid in full,” “without recourse,” or similar language. If Borrowers send such a payment, Lender may accept it without losing any of Lender’s rights under this Note, and Borrowers will remain obligated to pay any further amounted owed to Lender. All written communications concerning disputed amounts,
including any check or other payment instrument that indicates that the payment constitutes “payment in full” of the amount owed or that is tendered with other conditions or limitations or as full satisfaction of a disputed amount must be mailed or delivered to: Old National Bank, PO Box 3728, Evansville, IN 47736‑3728.
PAYMENT DUE DATE/FAILURE TO PAY
(a) All payments due under this Note shall be made without demand and received on the dates set forth in Section 2 above;
(b) In the event of a default as defined in this Note, or as set forth in the Master Loan Agreement or any Collateral Documents or Guaranties, at the option of Lender, for so long as the default exists, interest on the outstanding principal balance hereof shall accrue and will be paid at the rate in effect from time to time hereunder plus an additional 3% per annum, but in no event shall such default rate exceed, however, the maximum rate permitted by law (“Default Interest Rate”); and
(c) Any installment of principal and/or interest due hereunder which is not received on or before the 10th day following the date on which it is due shall be subject to a late payment fee of 5% of the amount owed on such installment (but not less than $50.00) for the purpose of defraying the expense incident to handling such delinquent payment (this payment is in addition to the amount set forth in (b) above).
INTEREST RATE COMPUTATION
Interest on this Note is computed on a 365/360 basis; that is, by applying the ratio of the interest rate over a year of 360 days, multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days the principal balance is outstanding. All interest payable under this Note is computed using this method.
All payments shall be made to Lender at the address on the interest billing statement provided by Lender or at the address of Lender set forth in Section 13 of this Note, at any branch of Lender, or such other place as Lender may from time to time designate in writing.
