LIBOR Rate shall be determined on a monthly basis.

4.Yield Maintenance. (a) Subject to the terms of the Subordination Agreement, to the extent that any Lender or Agent makes any claim for additional payments pursuant to the terms of Section 2.10 of the Senior Financing Agreement, Holder shall be entitled to receive any such additional payments to the extent such additional payments would be due to Holder if it were a Lender under the Senior Financing Agreement.
(b) Following an Additional Term Loan Rollover, if (x) this Note is accelerated (or deemed accelerated) while the Additional Term Loan remains outstanding, (y) the Issuer repays
the Additional Term Loan in full in cash, or (z) the Issuer repays or is required to pay the Additional Term Loan in whole or in part, including, without limitation, as a voluntary or mandatory prepayment, as a result of an acceleration (including an automatic acceleration) of this Note after the occurrence of an Event of Default or upon the commencement of any proceeding pursuant to any Debtor Relief Law, or as a result of any refinancing of the Note, then on the effective date of such payment, the Issuer shall pay to the Holder a prepayment premium equal to (i) if such payment occurs on or prior to December 28, 2019, $244,480, (ii) if such payment occurs following December 28, 2019 and on or prior to December 28, 2020, $183,360 and (iii) if such payment occurs following December 28, 2020, $79,456.

(d)Issuer or any Guarantor shall fail to pay when due (whether by scheduled maturity, required prepayment, acceleration, demand or otherwise) any principal, interest or other amount payable in respect of indebtedness (excluding indebtedness evidenced by this Note) having an aggregate principal amount outstanding in excess of $750,000, including, without limitation, the Senior Financing Agreement, and such failure shall continue after the applicable grace or cure period, if any, specified in the agreement or instrument relating to such indebtedness, or any other default under any agreement or instrument relating to any such indebtedness, or any other event, shall occur and shall continue after the applicable grace period, if any, specified in such agreement or instrument, in each case including, without limitation, the Senior Financing Agreement, if the effect of such default or event is to accelerate the maturity of

Waiver of any such default by the Holder shall not constitute a waiver under this event of default unless agreed by the Holder in writing.
6.Rights of Holder. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, unless such Event of Default has been waived in writing by the Holder, Holder may declare all outstanding obligations and liabilities of the Issuer payable hereunder to be immediately due and payable; provided that, in the case of an Event of Default described in paragraphs (b) or (c) above, all amounts payable by the Issuer hereunder, including, without limitation, the principal balance and all accrued interest on this Note, shall automatically become immediately due and payable, without notice, action or election by the Holder.
