6. Authorized Action by Secured Party. Debtor hereby irrevocably appoints Secured Party, effective on the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default (as defined below), as its attorney-in-fact to do (but Secured Party shall not be obligated to do and shall incur no liability to Debtor or any third party for failure to do) any act which Debtor is obligated by this Agreement to do, and to (a) exercise such rights and powers as Debtor might exercise with respect to the Collateral, including, without limitation, the right to collect by legal proceedings or otherwise and endorse, receive and receipt for all dividends, interest, payments, proceeds and other sums and property now or hereafter payable on or on account of Collateral; (b) privileges or options pertaining to, or deposit, surrender, accept, hold or apply other property in exchange for, Collateral; (c) insure, process and preserve the Collateral; (d) transfer the Collateral to Secured Party’s own name or the name of a nominee of Secured Party; and (e) make any compromise or settlement, and take any action it deems advisable, with respect to Collateral. Debtor agrees to reimburse Secured Party on demand for any costs and expenses, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, Secured Party may incur while acting as Debtor’s attorney-in-fact hereunder, all of which costs and expenses are included in the Obligations. It is further agreed that such care as Secured Party gives to the safekeeping of its own property of like kind shall constitute reasonable care of the Collateral when in Secured Party’s possession; provided, however, that Secured Party shall not be required to make any presentment, demand or protest, or give any notice and need not take any action to preserve any rights against any prior party or any other person in connection with the Obligations or with respect to the Collateral.
7. Pledged Shares.
a. All Pledged Shares in which Debtor shall hereafter grant a security interest pursuant to this Agreement will be, duly authorized, validly existing, fully paid and non assessable, and none of such Pledged Shares are or will be subject to any contractual restriction, or any restriction under the charter, by laws, shareholders agreement or other organizational instrument of APC or any other issuer thereof, upon the transfer of such Pledged Shares (except for any such restriction contained herein or under such organizational instruments).
b. All certificates, agreements or instruments representing or evidencing the Pledged Shares in existence on the date hereof will have been delivered to Secured Party in a suitable form for transfer by delivery or accompanied by duly executed instruments of transfer or assignment in blank and (assuming continuing possession by Secured Party of all such Pledged Shares) Secured Party has a perfected first priority security interest therein.
c. So long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Debtor shall have the right to exercise all voting, consensual and other powers of ownership pertaining to the Pledged Shares for all purposes not inconsistent with the terms of the Loan Agreement, the Note, this Agreement, or any other instrument or agreement referred to herein or therein, provided that Debtor agrees that it will not vote the Pledged Shares in any manner that is inconsistent with the terms of the Loan Agreement, the Note, this Agreement or any such other instrument or agreement; and Secured Party shall execute and deliver to Debtor or cause to be executed and delivered to Debtor all such proxies, powers of attorney, dividend and other orders, and all such instruments, without recourse, as Debtor may reasonably request for the purpose of enabling Debtor to exercise the rights and powers that they are entitled to exercise pursuant to this Section 7(c).
d. Unless and until an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Debtor shall be entitled to receive and retain any dividends, distributions or proceeds on the Pledged Shares paid in cash out of earned surplus.
e. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, whether or not Secured Party exercises any available right to declare any Obligations due and payable or seek or pursue any other relief or remedy available to them under applicable law or under the Loan Agreement, the Note, this Agreement or any other agreement relating to such Obligation, all dividends and other distributions on the Pledged Shares shall be paid directly to Secured Party and retained by it as part of the Collateral, subject to the terms of this Agreement, and, if Secured Party shall so request in writing, Debtor agrees to execute and deliver to Secured Party appropriate additional dividend, distribution and other orders and documents to that end, provided that if such Event of Default is cured, any such dividend or distribution theretofore paid to Secured Party shall, upon request of Debtor (except to the extent theretofore applied to the Obligations), be returned by Secured Party to Debtor.
f. Debtor hereby expressly authorizes and instructs each issuer of any Pledged Shares pledged hereunder to (i) comply with any instruction received by it from Secured Party in writing that (A) states that an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and (B) is otherwise in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, without any other or further instructions from Debtor, and Debtor agrees that such issuer shall be fully protected in so complying and (ii) unless otherwise expressly permitted hereby, pay any dividend or other payment with respect to the Pledged Shares directly to Secured Party for the benefit of Secured Party.
g. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Lender shall take no action with respect to the Pledged Shares that would result in Debtor having an ineligible shareholder under the laws relating to the corporate practice of medicine in the State of California.
8. Default and Remedies.
a. Debtor shall be deemed in default under this Agreement if Debtor fails to comply with any of the provisions of Sections 5 or 7, or fails to comply with any provision required of Debtor or its affiliates under the Loan Agreement, the Note or this Agreement or commits an Event of Default thereunder, for ten (10) days after Debtor’s receipt of written notice of any monetary default or fifteen (15) days after Debtor’s receipt of written notice of any non-monetary default (an “Event of Default”); provided, however, that, if such failure is of such nature as to not be curable within said fifteen (15) day period, an Event of Default shall occur if the breaching or failing party shall have failed to commence curative action within the prescribed fifteen (15) day period and prosecuted the same with due diligence to completion thereafter but in no event beyond thirty (30) days after Debtor’s receipt of the default notice. On the occurrence of any Event of Default, Secured Party may, at its option, after providing notice to Debtor, and in addition to all rights and remedies available to Secured Party and its affiliates under the Loan Agreement, the Note or this Agreement, do any one (1) or more of the following: (i) foreclose or otherwise enforce Secured Party’s security interest in any manner permitted by law or provided in this Agreement, subject to the rights of senior lienholders; (ii) sell, lease or otherwise dispose of any Collateral at one (1) or more public or private sales, whether or not such Collateral is present at the place of sale, for cash or credit or future delivery, on such terms and in such manner as Secured Party may determine; (iii) recover from Debtor all costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred or paid by Secured Party in exercising any right, power or remedy provided by this Agreement or by law; (iv) require Debtor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Secured Party at a place to be designated by Secured Party; (v) enter onto property where any Collateral is located and take possession thereof with or without judicial process; (vi) require Debtor to cause the Pledged Shares to be transferred of record into the name of Secured Party or its nominee; and (vii) prior to the disposition of the Collateral, store, process, repair or recondition it or otherwise prepare it for disposition in any manner and to the extent Secured Party deems appropriate and in connection with such preparation and disposition, without charge, use any trademark, service mark, trade name, copyright, patent or technical process used by Debtor.
b. Debtor recognizes that Secured Party may be compelled, at any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to conduct any sale of all or any part of the Pledged Shares without registering or qualifying such Pledged Shares under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and/or any applicable state securities laws in effect at such time. Debtor acknowledges that any such private sales may, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be made in such manner and under such circumstances as Secured Party may deem necessary or advisable in its sole and absolute discretion, including at prices and on terms that might be less favorable than those obtainable through a public sale without such restrictions (including, without limitation, a public offering made pursuant to a registration statement under the Securities Act), and, notwithstanding such circumstances, agrees that any such sale shall not be deemed not to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner solely because it was conducted as a private sale, and agrees that Secured Party shall have no obligation to conduct any public sales and no obligation to delay the sale of any Pledged Shares for the period of time necessary to permit its registration for public sale under the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws, and shall not have any responsibility or liability as a result of its election so not to conduct any such public sales or delay the sale of any Pledged Shares, notwithstanding the possibility that a substantially higher price might be realized if the sale were deferred until after such registration. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Debtor hereby waives any claims against Secured Party arising by reason of the fact that the price at which any Pledged Shares may have been sold at any private sale was less than the price that might have been obtained at a public sale or was less than the aggregate amount of the Obligations, even if Secured Party accepts the first offer received and does not offer such Pledged Shares to more than one offeree. Debtor agrees that a breach of any of the covenants contained in this Section 8 will cause irreparable injury to Secured Party, that Secured Party has no adequate remedy at law in respect of such breach and, as a consequence, that each and every covenant contained in this Section 8 shall be specifically enforceable against Debtor.
9. Cumulative Rights. The rights, powers and remedies of Secured Party and its affiliates under this Agreement shall be in addition to all rights, powers and remedies given to Secured Party by virtue of any statute or rule of law, the Loan Agreement, the Note or this Agreement or any other agreement, all of which rights, powers and remedies shall be cumulative and may be exercised successively or concurrently without impairing Secured Party’s security interest in the Collateral.
10. Waiver. Any forbearance or failure to act or delay by Secured Party in exercising any right, power or remedy shall not preclude the further exercise thereof, and every right, power or remedy of Secured Party shall continue in full force and effect until such right, power or remedy is specifically waived in a writing executed by Secured Party. Debtor waives any right to require Secured Party to proceed against any person or to exhaust any Collateral or to pursue any remedy in Secured Party’s power.
11. Further Actions. Debtor shall deliver promptly to Secured Party all certificates or instruments representing or evidencing any Collateral to be held as Collateral shall be in form suitable for transfer by delivery and shall be delivered together with undated appropriate endorsements or other necessary instruments of registration, transfer or assignment, duly executed and in form and substance satisfactory to Secured Party, and in each case together with such other instruments or documents as Secured Party may reasonably request.
12. Binding on Successors. All rights of Secured Party under this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of its successors and assigns, and all obligations of Debtor shall bind its heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns.
13. Entire Agreement; Severability; Amendments. This Agreement, together with the Loan Agreement and the Note, contains the entire agreement between Secured Party and Debtor relating to the matters described herein. If any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable, this Agreement shall be construed as if not containing those provisions and the rights and obligations of the parties hereto shall be construed and enforced accordingly. This Agreement may not be altered, amended, or modified, nor may any provision hereof be waived or noncompliance therewith consented to, except by means of a writing executed by Debtor and Secured Party. Any such alteration, amendment, modification, waiver, or consent shall be effective only to the extent specified therein and for the specific purpose for which given. No course of dealing and no delay or waiver of any right or default under this Agreement shall be deemed a waiver of any other, similar or dissimilar, right or default or otherwise prejudice the rights and remedies hereunder.

If more than one executes this Agreement, the term Debtor shall be deemed to refer to each of the undersigned as well as to all of them, and their obligations and agreements hereunder shall be joint and several.
