Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Secured Party may immediately, without demand or performance and without notice of intention to sell or of time or place of sale or of redemption or other notice or demand whatsoever to Borrower, all of which are hereby expressly waived, and without advertisement, sell the Collateral, or any part thereof, at public or private sale or otherwise, at any of Secured Party’s offices or elsewhere, for cash, on credit, or for future delivery and upon such other terms as Secured Party may deem commercially reasonable, and after deducting from the proceeds of sale or other disposition of the Collateral all expenses (including all reasonable expenses for legal services), shall apply the residue of such proceeds toward the payment of the Obligations and other liabilities of Borrower, Borrower remaining liable for any deficiency remaining unpaid after such application. If notice of any sale or other disposition is required by law to be given, Borrower hereby agrees that a notice sent at least two (2) days before the time of any intended public sale or of the time after which any private sale or other disposition of the Collateral is to be made, shall be reasonable notice of such sale or other disposition. The Secured Party, in its discretion, may in its name or in the name of Borrower, demand, sue for, collect, and receive any money, receivables, or proceeds included in the Collateral and extend the time of payment or otherwise modify any of the terms of or release Borrower under any such Collateral, without thereby incurring responsibility to or discharging or otherwise affecting any liability of Borrower. Borrower shall pay to the Secured Party on demand any and all attorney’s fees reasonably and necessarily incurred or paid by the Secured Party in protecting or enforcing the Obligations and the other rights of the Secured Party under this Security Agreement, including its right to take possession of and realize on Collateral.
5. Power of Attorney. Borrower authorizes the Secured Party and does hereby make, constitute, and appoint the Secured Party and agents of the Secured Party with full power of substitution, as Borrower’s true and lawful attorney-in-fact with power, in its own name or in the name of Borrower, upon the occurrence and continuance of any Event of Default, as defined in the Agreement and the Note, to endorse any notes, checks, drafts, money orders, or other instruments of payment (including, payments under or in respect of any policy of insurance) in respect of the Collateral that may come into possession of the Secured Party; to sign and endorse any documents relating to the Collateral; to pay or discharge taxes, liens, security interests, or other encumbrances at any time levied or placed on or threatened against the Collateral; to grant, collect, receipt for, compromise, settle, and sue for sums due in respect of the Collateral; and generally, to do at the Secured Party’s option and at Borrower’s expense, at any time, or from time to time all acts and things which the Secured Party deems necessary to protect, preserve, and realize upon the Collateral and Borrower’s security interests therein in order to effect the intent of this Security Agreement, as fully and effectually as Borrower might or could do; and Borrower hereby ratifies all that said attorney shall do or cause to be done by virtue hereof. THIS POWER OF ATTORNEY IS COUPLED WITH AN INTEREST AND SHALL BE IRREVOCABLE FOR AS LONG AS ANY OF THE OBLIGATIONS SHALL BE OUTSTANDING. Borrower agrees that any reasonable fees, costs, and expense incurred by the Secured Party pursuant to the foregoing authorization shall become part of the Obligations and be secured by the Collateral.
6. Term of Security Agreement. The term of this Security Agreement shall commence on the date hereof and continue in full force and effect until all of the Obligations have been fully and indefeasibly paid and performed and such payment and performance has been acknowledged in writing by the Secured Party. At such time, this Security Agreement shall terminate, Secured Party shall release its security interests hereunder (and deliver and sign appropriate UCC termination statements), and the Collateral shall be reassigned to Borrower.
7. Indemnity and Expenses.
a. Borrower agrees to indemnify Secured Party from and against any and all claims, losses, and liabilities arising out of or resulting from this Security Agreement (including, without limitation, enforcement of this Security Agreement), except claims, losses, or liabilities resulting from Secured Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
b. Borrower will upon demand pay to Secured Party the amount of any and all expenses, including the reasonable fees and out of pocket disbursements of its outside legal counsel and of any experts and agents, which Secured Party may incur in connection with: (i) filing or recording fees incurred in connection with this Security Agreement; (ii) the custody, preservation, use or operation of, or the sale of, collection from, or other realization upon, any of the Collateral; (iii) the exercise or enforcement of any of the rights of Secured Party; or (iv) the material failure by Borrower to perform or observe any of the provisions hereof. Secured Party shall not be liable to Borrower for damages as a result of delays, temporary withdrawals of the Equipment from service, or other causes other than those caused by Secured Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.
a. Continuing Security Interest; Transfer of the Note. This Security Agreement shall create a continuing security interest in the Collateral and shall: (a) remain in full force and effect until payment in full of all amounts due under the Note and Agreement; (b) be binding upon Borrower, its successors and assigns; and (c) inure to the benefit of Secured Party and its successors, transferees, and assigns. Upon the payment in full of all amounts due under the Note, the security interest granted hereby shall terminate and all rights to the Collateral shall revert to Borrower. Upon any such termination, Secured Party will, at Borrower’s expense, execute and deliver to Borrower such UCC termination statements and such other documentation as Borrower shall reasonably request to affect the termination and release of the Liens on the Collateral.
