Section 2.02. The Note. On the date hereof, Borrower will execute and deliver the Note to Lender to evidence Borrower’s Obligations to repay the Loan and the interest thereon.
Section 2.03. Use of Proceeds; Disbursement of the Loan. Borrower will use the proceeds of the Loan solely (a) for general working capital purposes, (b) to reimburse Lender for any expenses incurred by Lender in connection with making the Loan, and (c) to otherwise pay Lender sums due to Lender under this Agreement or the other instruments, agreements and documents related to this Agreement.
Section 2.04. Payments of Principal. If not earlier demanded pursuant to Section 7.02 hereof, the outstanding principal balance of each Advance made under the Loan shall be due and payable to Lender on the Maturity Date.
Section 2.05. Interest Rate and Payments of Interest.
Section 2.06. Payment to Lender. All sums payable to Lender under the Loan shall be paid directly to Lender in United States Dollars and immediately available funds. If Lender shall send to Borrower statements of amounts due hereunder, such statements shall be considered correct and conclusively binding on Borrower unless Borrower notifies Lender to the contrary within thirty (30) days of its receipt of any statement which it deems to be incorrect. Alternatively, at its sole discretion, Lender may charge against any deposit account of Borrower all or any part of any amount due hereunder.
Section 2.07. Late Fee/Default Rate of Interest. Borrower promises to pay to Lender a late fee equal to three percent (3.00%) of the amount of each installment of principal and/or installment of interest which is received more than ten (10) days after the due date thereof; provided, however, that such late fee shall not be less than $20.00 nor more than the maximum amount (if any) permitted by law.

This section does not extend any payment due date expressly stated in this Agreement or any Collateral Document and does not in any way prevent or estop Lender from requiring that payments be made by Borrower strictly when due. Unless accepted by Lender, and unless accompanied by all other amounts then due to Lender, the tender of such payment by Borrower shall not cure the Default arising from the payment default upon which such late charge was assessed.
Section 2.08. Non-Use Fee. Borrower shall pay on an annual basis in arrears to Lender a non-use fee equal to .20% (20 bps) multiplied by the average unused principal amount of the Commitment for the applicable 12-month period (the “Non-Use Fee”), which amount shall be payable no later than 15 days following the first anniversary date of this Agreement.

have occurred and be continuing and (ii) Borrower has been obligated under the Loan for $12,500,000 or more for at least six (6) consecutive calendar months of each applicable twelve (12) month period for the life of the Loan.

Section 7.03Remedies. If a Default shall have occurred and be continuing beyond any applicable notice and grace periods, then whether or not acceleration occurs under Section 7.02, Lender shall have, in addition to the rights and remedies given it by this Agreement and the Collateral Documents, all those allowed by all applicable Laws, including, but without limitation, the Uniform Commercial Code as enacted in any jurisdiction in which any Collateral may be located. After deducting from the proceeds of sale or other disposition of the Collateral all expenses (including all reasonable expenses for legal services), Lender shall apply such proceeds toward the satisfaction of the Obligations. Borrower shall be liable for any deficiency, and any remainder of the proceeds after satisfaction in full of the Obligations shall be distributed as required by applicable Laws. Notice of any sale or other disposition shall be given to Borrower (and/or to the Subsidiary Bank, if required under applicable Laws) at least five (5) days before the time of any intended public sale or of the time after which any intended private sale or other disposition of the Collateral is to be made, which Borrower hereby agrees shall be reasonable notice of such sale or other disposition. Borrower agrees to assemble, or to cause to be assembled, at its own expense, the Collateral at such place or places as Lender shall designate. At any such sale or other disposition, Lender may, to the extent permissible under applicable Laws, purchase the whole or any part of the Collateral, free from any right of redemption on the part of Borrower or the Subsidiary Bank, which right is hereby waived and released. Without limiting the generality of any of the rights and remedies conferred upon Lender under this section, Lender may, to the full
extent permitted by applicable Laws, at Lender’s option, use, operate, manage and control the Collateral in any lawful manner.
