Second Amended and Restated Term Note
December 31, 2020
January 1, 2024
FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned promise(s) to pay to the order of COMERICA BANK (herein called "Bank"), at any office of the Bank in the State of Texas, the principal sum of TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS ($20,000,000.00), payable in monthly installments equal to the amounts set forth on the attached Exhibit A, PLUS interest, commencing on January 1, 2022, and on each succeeding Installment Payment Date thereafter, until the maturity date set forth above (the "Maturity Date"). On the Maturity Date, the entire unpaid balance of principal, interest and all other sums hereunder shall be due and payable in full (unless sooner accelerated in accordance with the terms of this Note).
This Note is a note under which an advance is made, subject to the terms and conditions of this Note and that certain Credit Agreement dated effective as of November 1, 2017 between the undersigned and Bank (as the same has been and may be amended, restated or modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein will have the meaning given such terms in the Credit Agreement.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Note, the unpaid principal balance of all Indebtedness outstanding under this Note from time to time shall bear interest at the Prime Rate plus the Applicable Margin.
Interest accruing hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year if this Note evidences a business or commercial loan or a 365/366-day year if a consumer loan, and shall be assessed for the actual number of days elapsed, and in such computation, effect shall be given to any change in the interest rate as a result of any change in the Prime Rate on the date of each such change.
Accrued and unpaid interest on the unpaid principal balance outstanding hereunder shall be payable, in arrears, on each Installment Payment Date, until all Indebtedness outstanding under this Note is paid in full (whether in accordance with the terms hereof, by acceleration, or otherwise).
Payments under this Note shall be first applied to accrued and unpaid interest hereunder and the balance, if any, to principal.
In the event the periodic installments set forth above are inclusive of interest, the undersigned hereby acknowledge(s) and agree(s) that such installments are based upon the original principal amount of Indebtedness outstanding under this Note, an assumed fixed rate of interest, and an assumed amortization term, notwithstanding the fact that the applicable interest rate may change from time to time during the term of this Note. Therefore, in the event that the applicable interest rate change(s) at any time as a result of any change(s) in the Prime Rate, Bank may, in its sole discretion, recalculate the installments of principal and interest required to be made by the undersigned under and pursuant to the terms of this Note, and the undersigned agree(s) to pay such installments as they may be recalculated by Bank, and the undersigned acknowledge(s) and agree(s) that any such recalculation shall not affect the Maturity Date of this Note or any other terms or provisions herein set forth.
From and after the occurrence of any Default hereunder, and so long as any such Default remains unremedied or uncured thereafter, the Indebtedness outstanding under this Note shall bear interest at a per annum rate of three percent (3%) above the otherwise applicable interest rate, which interest shall be payable upon demand. In addition to the foregoing, a late payment charge equal to five percent (5%) of each late payment hereunder may be charged on any payment not received by Bank within ten (10) calendar days after the payment due date therefor, but acceptance of payment of any such charge shall not constitute a waiver of any Default hereunder.
In no event shall the interest payable under this Note at any time exceed the Maximum Rate. The term "Maximum Rate", as used herein, shall mean at the particular time in question the maximum nonusurious rate of interest which, under applicable law, may then be charged on this Note. If on any day the applicable interest rate hereunder in respect of any Indebtedness under this Note shall exceed the Maximum Rate for that day, the rate of interest applicable to such Indebtedness shall be fixed at the Maximum Rate on that day and on each day thereafter until the total amount of interest accrued on the unpaid principal balance of this Note equals the total amount of interest which would have accrued if there had been no Maximum Rate. If such maximum rate of interest changes after the date hereof, the Maximum Rate shall be automatically increased or decreased, as the case may be, without notice to the undersigned from time to time as of the effective date of each change in such maximum rate. For purposes of determining the Maximum Rate under the law of the State of Texas, the applicable interest rate ceiling shall be the "weekly ceiling" from time to time in effect under Chapter 303 of the Texas Finance Code, as amended.
The amount from time to time outstanding under this Note, the applicable interest rate and the amount and date of any repayment shall be noted on Bank's records, which records shall be conclusive evidence thereof, absent manifest error; provided, however, any failure by Bank to make any such notation, or any error in any such notation, shall not relieve the undersigned of its/their obligations to repay Bank all amounts payable by the undersigned to Bank under or pursuant to this Note, when due in accordance with the terms hereof.
Second Amended and Restated Term Note
In the event that any payment under this Note becomes due and payable on any day which is not a Business Day, the due date thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, to the extent applicable, interest shall continue to accrue and be payable thereon during such extension at the rate set forth in this Note.
All payments to be made by the undersigned to Bank under or pursuant to this Note shall be in immediately available United States funds, without setoff or counterclaim, and in the event that any payments submitted hereunder are in funds not available until collected, said payments shall continue to bear interest until collected.
The undersigned may prepay all or any part of the outstanding balance of any Indebtedness hereunder at any time without premium or penalty. Any prepayment hereunder shall also be accompanied by the payment of all accrued and unpaid interest on the amount so prepaid. Partial prepayments hereunder shall be applied to the installments hereunder in the inverse order of their maturities.
If any Change in Law shall (a) subject Bank to any tax, duty or other charge with respect to this Note or any Indebtedness hereunder, or shall change the basis of taxation of payments to Bank of the principal of or interest under this Note or any other amounts due under this Note in respect thereof (except for changes in the rate of tax on the overall net income of Bank imposed by the jurisdiction in which Bank's principal executive office is located); or (b) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including, without limitation, any imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System), special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by Bank, or shall impose on Bank or the foreign exchange and interbank markets any other condition affecting this Note or the Indebtedness hereunder; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to Bank of maintaining any part of the Indebtedness hereunder or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by Bank under this Note by an amount deemed by the Bank to be material, then the undersigned shall pay to Bank, within fifteen (15) days of the undersigned's receipt of written notice from Bank demanding such compensation, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Bank for such increased cost or reduction. A certificate of Bank, prepared in good faith and in reasonable detail by Bank and submitted by Bank to the undersigned, setting forth the basis for determining such additional amount or amounts necessary to compensate Bank shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
In the event that any Change in Law affects or would affect the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by Bank (or any corporation controlling Bank), and Bank determines that the amount of such capital or liquidity is increased by or based upon the existence of any obligations of Bank hereunder or the maintaining of any Indebtedness hereunder, and such increase has the effect of reducing the rate of return on Bank's (or such controlling corporation's) capital as a consequence of such obligations or the maintaining of such Indebtedness hereunder to a level below that which Bank (or such controlling corporation) could have achieved but for such circumstances (taking into consideration its policies with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then the undersigned shall pay to Bank, within fifteen (15) days of the undersigned's receipt of written notice from Bank demanding such compensation, additional amounts as are sufficient to compensate Bank (or such controlling corporation) for any increase in the amount of capital and/or liquidity and reduced rate of return which Bank reasonably determines to be allocable to the existence of any obligations of the Bank hereunder or to maintaining any Indebtedness hereunder. A certificate of Bank as to the amount of such compensation, prepared in good faith and in reasonable detail by the Bank and submitted by Bank to the undersigned, shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes absent manifest error.
This Note and any other indebtedness are secured by and the Bank is granted a security interest in and lien upon all Collateral. Notwithstanding the above, (i) to the extent that any portion of the Indebtedness is a consumer loan, that portion shall not be secured by any deed of trust or mortgage on or other security interest in any of the undersigned's principal dwelling or in any of the undersigned's real property which is not a purchase money security interest as to that portion, unless expressly provided to the contrary in another place, or (ii) if the undersigned (or any of them) has (have) given or give(s) Bank a deed of trust or mortgage covering California real property, that deed of trust or mortgage shall no t secure this Note or any other indebtedness of the undersigned (or any of them), unless expressly provided to the contrary in another place, or (iii) if the undersigned (or any of them) has (have) given or give(s) the Bank a deed of trust or mortgage covering real property which, under Texas law, constitutes the homestead of such person, that deed of trust or mortgage shall not secure this Note or any other indebtedness of the undersigned (or any of them) unless expressly provided to the contrary in another place.
Upon the occurrence and during the continuance or existence of an Event of Default, the Bank may, at its option and without prior notice to the undersigned (or any of them), cease advancing money or extending credit to or for the benefit of the undersigned under this Note or any other Loan Document, terminate this Note as to any future liability or obligation of Bank, but without affecting Bank's rights and security interests in any Collateral and the Indebtedness of the undersigned to Bank, declare any or all of the Indebtedness to be immediately due and payable (notwithstanding any provisions contained in the evidence of it to the contrary), sell or liquidate all or any portion of the Collateral, set off against the Indebtedness any amounts owing by the Bank to the undersigned (or any of them), charge interest at the default rate provided in the document evidencing the relevant Indebtedness and exercise any one or more of the rights and remedies granted to the Bank by any agreement with the undersigned (or any of them) or given to it under applicable law.
The undersigned authorize(s) the Bank to charge any account(s) of the undersigned (or any of them) with the Bank for any and all sums due hereunder when due; provided, however, that such authorization shall not affect any of the undersigned's obligation to pay to the Bank all amounts when due, whether or not any such account balances that are maintained by the undersigned with the Bank are insufficient to pay to the Bank any amounts when due, and to the extent that such accounts are insufficient to pay to the Bank all such amounts, the undersigned shall remain liable for any deficiencies until paid in full.
Second Amended and Restated Term Note
If this Note is signed by two or more parties (whether by all as makers or by one or more as an accommodation party or otherwise), the obligations and undertakings under this Note shall be that of all and any two or more jointly and also of each severally. This Note shall bind the undersigned, and the undersigned's respective heirs, personal representatives, successors and assigns.
The undersigned waive(s) presentment, demand, protest, notice of dishonor, notice of demand or intent to demand, notice of acceleration or intent to accelerate, and all other notices, and agree(s) that no extension or indulgence to the undersigned (or any of them) or release, substitution or nonenforcement of any security, or release or substitution of any of the undersigned, any guarantor or any other party, whether with or without notice, shall affect the obligations of any of the undersigned. The undersigned waive(s) all defenses or right to discharge available under Section 3-605 of the Uniform Commercial Code and waive(s) all other suretyship defenses or right to discharge. The undersigned agree(s) that the Bank has the right to sell, assign, or grant participations or any interest in, any or all of the Indebtedness, and that, in connection with this right, but without limiting its ability to make other disclosures to the full extent allowable, the Bank may disclose all documents and information which the Bank now or later has relating to the undersigned or the Indebtedness. The undersigned agree(s) that the Bank may provide information relating to this Note or relating to the undersigned to the Bank's parent, affiliates, subsidiaries and service providers.
The undersigned agree(s) to pay or reimburse to Bank, or any other holder or owner of this Note, on demand, (a) all actual, out-of-pocket costs, expenses, fees and charges paid or incurred by Bank (including, without limitation, Bank's reasonable attorneys' fees and costs and/or fees and transfer charges in connection with the preparation, closing and consummation of this Note and/or the other Loan Documents and/or the Loans or transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, or in connection with the administration of this Note or the Indebtedness and (b) all costs, expenses, fees and charges paid or incurred by Bank (including, without limitation, Bank's attorneys' fees and costs and/or fees, transfer charges and costs of Bank's in-house counsel), in connection with the enforcement in any other matter or proceeding relating to this Note or the Indebtedness.
The undersigned acknowledge(s) and agree(s) that there are no contrary agreements, oral or written, establishing a term of this Note and agree(s) that the terms and conditions of this Note may not be amended, waived or modified except in a writing signed by an officer of the Bank expressly stating that the writing constitutes an amendment, waiver or modification of the terms of this Note. As used in this Note, the word "undersigned" means, individually and collectively, each maker, accommodation party, endorser and other party signing this Note in a similar capacity. If any provision of this Note is unenforceable in whole or part for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be effective. THIS NOTE SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF Texas, WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICT OF LAWS PRINCIPLES. Chapter 346 of the Texas Finance Code (and as the same may be incorporated by reference in other Texas statutes) shall not apply to the Indebtedness evidenced by this Note.
This Note and all other Loan Documents (whether executed and delivered prior to, concurrently with or subsequent to this Note), as such Loan Documents may have been or may hereafter be amended from time to time are intended to be performed in accordance with, and only to the extent permitted by, all applicable usury laws. If any provision hereof or of any of the other Loan Documents or the application thereof to any person or circumstance shall, for any reason and to any extent, be invalid or unenforceable, neither the application of such provision to any other person or circumstance nor the remainder of the instrument in which such provision is contained shall be affected thereby and shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law. It is expressly stipulated and agreed to be the intent of the holder hereof to at all times comply with the usury and other applicable laws now or hereafter governing the interest payable on the indebtedness evidenced by this Note. If the applicable law is ever revised, repealed or judicially interpreted so as to render usurious any amount called for under this Note or under any of the other Loan Documents, or contracted for, charged, taken, reserved or received with respect to the indebtedness evidenced by this Note, or if Bank's exercise of the option to accelerate the maturity of this Note, or if any prepayment by the undersigned or prepayment agreement results (or would, if complied with, result) in the undersigned having paid, contracted for or being charged for any interest in excess of that permitted by law, then it is the express intent of the undersigned and Bank that this Note and the other Loan Documents shall be limited to the extent necessary to prevent such result and all excess amounts theretofore collected by Bank shall be credited on the principal balance of this Note or, if fully paid, upon such other Indebtedness as shall then remain outstanding (or, if this Note and all other Indebtedness have been paid in full, refunded to the undersigned), and the provisions of this Note and the other Loan Documents shall immediately be deemed reformed and the amounts thereafter collectable hereunder and thereunder reduced, without the necessity of the execution of any new document, so as to comply with the then applicable law, but so as to permit the recovery of the fullest amount otherwise called for hereunder or thereunder. All sums paid, or agreed to be paid, by the undersigned for the use, forbearance, detention, taking, charging, receiving or reserving of the indebtedness of the undersigned to Bank under this Note or arising under or pursuant to the other Loan Documents shall, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of such indebtedness until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of such indebtedness does not exceed the usury ceiling from time to time in effect and applicable to such indebtedness for so long as such indebtedness is outstanding. To the extent federal law permits Bank to contract for, charge or receive a greater amount of interest, Bank will rely on federal law instead of the Texas Finance Code, as supplemented by Texas Credit Title, for the purpose of determining the Maximum Rate. Additionally, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law now or hereafter in effect, Bank may, at its option and from time to time, implement any other method of computing the Maximum Rate under the Texas Finance Code, as supplemented by Texas Credit Title, or under other applicable law, by giving notice, if required, to the undersigned as provided by applicable law now or hereafter in effect. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any of the other Loan Documents, it is not the intention of Bank to accelerate the maturity of any interest that has not accrued at the time of such acceleration or to collect unearned interest at the time of such acceleration.
