(c) The provisions of this Section shall survive the repayment or other satisfaction of the Note.
10. DEFAULT. If the Borrower fails to pay any amount owing under the Note or this Agreement within ten (10) days of the same becoming due, or if Borrower otherwise fails to perform according to the terms of the Note or if the Borrower shall fail, neglect or refuse to perform any of Borrower’s promises or agreements hereunder or breach any promise, covenant, warranty or agreement made in the Loan Documents and fails to remedy such failure within thirty (30) days of receiving notice of the same, or if Borrower or Guarantor shall become insolvent, or if there is filed a voluntary or involuntary petition in bankruptcy of either Borrowers or Guarantor, or an assignment for the benefit of creditors is made by either Borrower or Guarantor, then and in any such event the Borrower shall be considered in default hereunder and the Lender may, at its option, without prejudice to any other right or remedy Lender may have as a matter of law, declare all sums evidenced by the Note and all sums due hereunder to be immediately due and payable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if either Borrower or Guarantor is in Default for failure to meet any of the reporting requirements set forth in any of the Loan Documents, or if either Borrower or Guarantor requests a waiver with respect to a Default with respect to one or more financial covenant set forth in the Loan Documents, Lender may, in its sole and absolute discretion, impose a penalty or charge a waiver fee in lieu of declaring Borrower in Default hereunder.
(a) Disclosure of Financial Information and Confidentiality. Lender is hereby authorized to disclose any financial or other information about Borrower to any regulatory body or agency having jurisdiction over Lender or required by applicable law, and to any present, future or prospective participant or successor in interest in any loan or other financial accommodation made by Lender to Borrower; provided that any such present, future or prospective participant or successor in interest agrees to be bound by the confidentiality provisions set forth herein. The information provided may include, without limitation, amounts, terms, balances, payment history, return item history and any financial or other information about Borrower that is required by law to be disclosed. Lender covenants and agrees to keep confidential, and shall require any present, future or prospective participant or successor in interest to keep confidential, any information disclosed by Borrower or Guarantor to Lender which is material and not know to the general public.
(b) Integration. This Agreement and the other Loan Documents constitute the sole agreement of the parties with respect to the transaction contemplated hereby and supersede all oral negotiations and prior writings with respect thereto.
(c) No Implied Waiver. Lender shall not be deemed to have modified or waived any of its rights or remedies hereunder unless such modification or waiver is in writing and signed by Lender, and then only to the extent specifically set forth therein. A waiver in one event shall not be construed as continuing or as a waiver of or bar to such right or remedy in a subsequent event. After any acceleration of, or the entry of any judgment on, this Note, the acceptance by Lender of any payments by or on behalf of Borrower on account of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note shall not cure or be deemed to cure any Event of Default or reinstate or be deemed to reinstate the terms of this Note absent an express written agreement duly executed by Lender and Borrower.
(d) No Usurious Amounts. Anything contained herein or in the Note to the contrary notwithstanding, it is the intent of the parties that Borrower shall not be obligated to pay interest hereunder at a rate which is in excess of the maximum rate permitted by law. If by the terms of the Note, Borrower is at any time required to pay interest at a rate in excess of such maximum rate, the rate of interest under this Note shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to such maximum legal rate and the portion of all prior interest payments in excess of such maximum legal rate shall be applied to and shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of the outstanding principal balance, unless Borrower shall notify Lender in writing, that Borrower elects to have such excess sum returned to it forthwith. Borrower agrees that in determining whether or not any interest payable under this Note exceeds the highest rate permitted by law, any non-principal payment, including without limitation, late charges, shall be deemed to the extent permitted by law to be an expense, fee or premium rather than interest. In addition, Lender may, in determining the maximum rate of interest allowed under applicable law, as amended from time to time, take advantage of: (i) the rate of interest permitted by Section 687.12 Florida Statutes (“Interest rates; parity among licensed lenders or creditors”) and 12 United States Code, Sections 85 and 86, and (ii) any other law, rule or regulation in effect from time to time, available to Lender which exempts Lender from any limit upon the rate of interest it may charge or grants to Lender the right to charge a higher rate of interest than allowed by Florida Statutes, Chapter 687.
(e) Partial Invalidity. The invalidity or unenforceability of any one or more provisions of this Agreement shall not render any other provision invalid or unenforceable. In lieu of any invalid or unenforceable provision, there shall be added automatically a valid and enforceable provision as similar in terms to such invalid or unenforceable provision as may be possible.
(f) Binding Effect. The covenants, conditions, waivers, releases and agreements contained in this Agreement and the Loan Documents shall bind, and the benefits thereof shall inure to, the parties hereto and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns; provided, however, that the Loan cannot be assigned by Borrower without the prior written consent of Lender, and any such assignment or attempted assignment by Borrower shall be void and of no effect with respect to Lender.
(g) Modifications. This Agreement may not be supplemented, extended, modified or terminated except by an agreement in writing signed by the party against whom enforcement of any such waiver, change, modification or discharge is sought.
(h) Sales or Participations. Lender may from time to time sell or assign, in whole or in part, or grant participations in, the Loan, the Note and/or the obligations evidenced thereby. The holder of any such sale, assignment or participation, if the applicable agreement between Lender and such holder so provides, shall be: (a) entitled to all of the rights, obligations and benefits of Lender; and (b) deemed to hold Lender’s lien with respect to any and all obligations of such holder to Borrower, in each case as fully as though Borrower was directly indebted to such holder. Lender may in its discretion give notice to Borrower of such sale, assignment or participation; however, the failure to give such notice shall not affect any of Lender’s or such holder’s rights hereunder.
(i) Jurisdiction. Borrower irrevocably appoints each and every owner, partner and/or officer of the Borrower as its attorney upon whom may be served, by regular or certified mail at the address set forth below, any notice, process or pleading in any action or proceeding against it arising out of or in connection with this Note or any other Loan Document; and Borrower hereby consents that any action or proceeding against it be commenced and maintained in any court within the State of Florida by service of process on any such owner, partner and/or officer; and Borrower agrees that the courts of such State shall have jurisdiction with respect to the subject matter hereof and the person of Borrower. Borrower agrees not to assert any defense to any action or proceeding initiated by Lender based upon improper venue or inconvenient forum.
(j) Notices. All notices and communications under this Note shall be in writing and shall be given by either (a) hand-delivery, (b) first class mail (postage prepaid), or (c) reliable overnight commercial courier (charges prepaid), to the addresses first set forth above. Notice shall be deemed to have been given and received: (i) if by hand delivery, upon delivery; (ii) if by mail, three (3) calendar days after the date first deposited in the United States mail; and (iii) if by overnight courier, on the date scheduled for delivery. A party may change its address by giving written notice to the other party as specified herein. Notwithstanding the foregoing, financial reports may be provided electronically if sent to the appropriate Client Advisor with Lender.
(k) Continuing Enforcement. If, after receipt of any payment of all or any part of the Loan, Lender is compelled or agrees, for settlement purposes, to surrender such payment to any person or entity for any reason (including, without limitation, a determination that such payment is void or voidable as a preference or fraudulent conveyance, an impermissible setoff, or a diversion of trust funds), then the Note and the other Loan Documents shall continue in full force and effect or be reinstated, as the case may be, and Borrower shall be liable for, and shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Lender with respect to, the full amount so surrendered. The provisions of this Section shall survive the cancellation or termination of the Note and this Agreement, and shall remain effective notwithstanding the payment of the obligations evidenced hereby, the release of any security interest, lien or encumbrance securing the Note or any other action which Lender may have taken in reliance upon its receipt of such payment. Any cancellation, release or other such action shall be deemed to have been conditioned upon any payment of the obligations evidenced hereby having become final and irrevocable.
(l) Waiver of Jury Trial. BORROWER AND LENDER AGREE THAT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING, WHETHER CLAIM OR COUNTERCLAIM, BROUGHT BY LENDER OR BORROWER, ON OR WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR THE DEALINGS OF THE PARTIES WITH RESPECT HERETO OR THERETO, SHALL BE TRIED ONLY BY A COURT AND NOT BY A JURY. LENDER AND BORROWER EACH HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY, INTENTIONALLY AND INTELLIGENTLY, AND WITH THE ADVICE OF THEIR RESPECTIVE COUNSEL, WAIVE, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING. FURTHER, BORROWER WAIVES ANY RIGHT THEY MAY HAVE TO CLAIM OR RECOVER, IN ANY SUCH SUIT, ACTION OR PROCEEDING, ANY SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER DAMAGES OTHER THAN, OR IN ADDITION TO, ACTUAL DAMAGES. BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THIS SECTION IS A SPECIFIC AND MATERIAL ASPECT OF THIS NOTE AND THAT LENDER WOULD NOT EXTEND CREDIT TO BORROWER IF THE WAIVERS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION WERE NOT A PART OF THIS NOTE.
(m) Amendment and Restatement. This Agreement amends, restates and replaces the Original Loan Amendment in its entirety.
