(“Guarantor”), and LINE FINANCIAL CORP., a Texas corporation (the "Lender").  All capitalized terms used but not defined in this Amendment shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Loan Agreement (defined below).


WHEREAS, Borrower and Lender have entered into a Loan and Security Agreement dated as of November 23, 2021, pursuant to which Lender has extended a Loan to Borrower of up to $6,000,000 (as from time to time, amended, modified or restated, and including all exhibits and schedules thereto, the “Loan Agreement”);

WHEREAS, Guarantor has unconditionally guaranteed all Obligations of Borrower to Lender under the Loan Agreement and other Loan Documents; and  


WHEREAS, Borrower has requested additional Loans in the combined principal amount of $2,800,000, and Lender has agreed to make such additional Loans to Borrower, subject to and conditioned upon the terms of this Amendment, as more particularly described below.



NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants hereinafter contained, the Loan Agreement and Schedule thereto are hereby modified and amended as follows:

1.Additional Loans.  Provided no Event of Default has occurred or is continuing under the Loan Agreement or under any other Loan Document, and subject at all times to the terms of the Loan Agreement, Lender agrees to make two additional Loans to Borrower, one in the principal amount of $1,000,000 to be disbursed on or around January 19, 2022, and the other in the principal amount of $1,800,000 to be disbursed on or around January 26, 2022 (the “Additional Loans”).  Each Additional Loan shall be deemed a “Loan” under Section 1 of the Schedule to the Loan Agreement.  The Additional Loans shall accrue interest pursuant to Section 2 of the Schedule to the Loan Agreement (including at the Default Rate, when applicable).  Accrued interest on the outstanding principal balance of the Additional Loans shall be payable to Lender pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement.

2.Principal Repayment Terms for Additional Loans.  The outstanding principal on the Additional Loans shall be repaid by Borrower to Lender, in the amounts and on the dates set forth in the following repayment schedule:

6.Additional Loans Subject to Terms of Loan Agreement.  Each Additional Loan shall be subject to the terms and conditions of the Loan Agreement, as hereby amended and modified.

7.Security.  All amounts outstanding on the Additional Loans shall constitute “Obligations” (as defined in the Loan Agreement), and such amounts are and shall continue to be secured by a first lien security interest in the Collateral, as set forth in Section 2 of the Loan Agreement.  All parties signing below acknowledge and agree that the liens created and provided for by the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents continue to secure, among other things, the Obligations arising under the Loan Agreement as amended hereby; and the Loan Documents and the rights and remedies of the Lender thereunder, the obligations of the Borrower and any other obligor of the Obligations, and the liens created and provided for thereunder remain in full force and effect and shall not be affected, impaired or discharged hereby.
