9.Assignability. This New Replacement Note shall be binding upon the Borrower and its successors and assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of the Holder and its successors and assigns, and may not be assigned by the Borrower without the consent of the Holder. Further, Holder may not assign any part of this New Replacement Note without first complying with the following:
a.Grant. The Borrower is hereby granted the right of first refusal (the “First Refusal Right”), exercisable in connection with any proposed transfer of all or any portion of this New Replacement Note. For this purpose, the term “transfer” shall include any sale, assignment, pledge, encumbrance or other disposition for value of this New Replacement Note by the Holder.
b.Notice of Intended Disposition. In the event the Holder desires to accept a bona fide third-party offer for the transfer of any or all of this New Replacement Note, the Holder shall promptly (i) deliver to the Borrower written notice (the “Disposition Notice”) of the terms and conditions of the offer, including the payment/consideration offered and the identity of the third-party offeror, and (ii) provide satisfactory proof that the disposition of the this New Replacement Note to such third-party offeror would not be in contravention of federal or state securities laws.

Such right shall be exercisable by delivery of written notice (the “Exercise Notice”) to the Holder prior to the expiration of the ten (10) business day exercise period.
d.Valuation. Should the purchase price specified in the Disposition Notice be payable in property other than cash or evidences of indebtedness, the Borrower (or its assignees) shall have the right to pay the purchase price in the form of cash equal in amount to the value of such property. If the Holder and the Borrower (or its assignees) cannot agree on such cash value within five (5) business days after the Borrower’s receipt of the Disposition Notice, the valuation shall be made by an appraiser of recognized standing selected by the Holder and the Borrower (or its assignees) or, if they cannot agree on an appraiser within seven (7) business days after the Borrower’s receipt of the Disposition Notice, each shall select an appraiser of recognized standing and the two appraisers shall designate a third appraiser of recognized standing, whose appraisal shall be determinative of such value. The cost of such appraisal shall be shared equally by the Holder and the Borrower. The closing shall then be held on the later of (i) the fifth business day following delivery of the Exercise Notice or (ii) the fifth business day after such cash valuation shall have been made.
e.Full Exercise of Rights.

The closing shall then be held on the later of (i) ten (10) business days following delivery of the Disposition Notice or (ii) five business days after any necessary valuation shall have been made.
f.Partial Exercise of Right.

i.sale or other disposition of all of this New Replacement Note to the third-party offeror identified in the Disposition Notice, but in full compliance with the requirements of this Section, as if the Borrower did not exercise the First Refusal Right hereunder; or
ii.sale to the Borrower, or its assignees of the portion of this New Replacement Note which the Borrower, or its assignees has elected to purchase, such sale to be effected in substantial conformity with the provisions of this Section.
iii.Failure of the Holder to deliver timely notification to the Borrower under this Section shall be deemed to be an election by Holder to sell/transfer this New Replacement Note pursuant to alternative (ii) above.
g.Non-Exercise of Right. In the event the Borrower, or its assignees do not exercise their purchase rights in accordance with this Section the Holder shall have a period of thirty (30) business days thereafter in which to sell or otherwise dispose of this New Replacement Note to the third-party offeror identified in the Disposition Notice upon terms and conditions (including the purchase price) no more favorable to such third-party offeror than those specified in the Disposition Notice.
