ACCOUNT PURCHASE AGREEMENT
THIS ACCOUNT PURCHASE AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”), dated as of the Effective Date, by and between GATR TECHNOLOGIES, INC., a corporation formed under the laws of Alabama and having its chief executive office at 9333 Balboa Ave., San Diego, CA 92123 (the “Client”) and WELLS FARGO BANK, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION (the “Purchaser”). Except as set forth in Section 10.1 below, all capitalized terms used in this Agreement are defined in Rider A annexed hereto.
Client has advised Purchaser that Client desires to offer to sell and assign to Purchaser certain of Client’s Accounts that satisfy the requirements of Approved Accounts hereunder. Purchaser may, in its sole discretion, purchase certain Approved Accounts offered for sale and assignment, and, except as set forth herein, all such purchases shall be without recourse to Client. This Agreement, including the Schedules and Riders annexed hereto, memorializes the terms and conditions under which Purchaser shall purchase such Approved Accounts from Client.
In consideration of the premises and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, Client and Purchaser hereby agree as follows:
PURCHASE AND PRICING TERMS
Section 1.1 Purchase and Assignment of Accounts. Client hereby agrees to sell and assign to Purchaser, and Purchaser hereby agrees to purchase as absolute owner, certain Approved Accounts of Client arising from sales of inventory or rendition of services in the ordinary course of business by Client to a Customer, without further act or instrument. With respect to each Approved Account offered for sale by Client to Purchaser hereunder and accepted for purchase by Purchaser from Client hereunder, the assignment to Purchaser of such Approved Account, and purchase by Purchaser of such Approved Account, will be effective as of the date of payment by Purchaser of the Initial Payment of the Purchase Price for such Approved Account in accordance with the terms hereof (such Approved Accounts, upon effectiveness of the assignment and purchase thereof and so long as such Approved Account has not been repurchased by Client, being referred to, collectively, as the “Purchased Accounts”). It is understood and agreed that, notwithstanding any increase in the Initial Payment of the Purchase Price for an Unbilled Account upon the Conversion Date thereof in accordance with Section 1.4 below, but without limiting the obligation of Purchaser under Section 1.4 below with respect to payment of such increase, the assignment from Client to Purchaser and purchase by Purchaser from Client of an Unbilled Account will be effective, and such Unbilled Account shall constitute a Purchased Account (so long as it has not been repurchased by Client), as of the date of payment by Purchaser of such Initial Payment calculated using the Purchase Price Rate for Unbilled Accounts. Except as set forth herein, all purchases by Purchaser of Purchased Accounts shall be without recourse to Client.
Section 1.2 Written Credit Approval. Client shall submit to Purchaser a request for written credit approval of the Accounts of Client’s Customers. Purchaser may, in its discretion, approve such request by establishing a credit line limited to a specific amount (a “Purchase Limit”) for such specific Customer (all such Accounts owing by a specific Customer not exceeding the credit line established by Purchaser, “Approved Accounts”). No credit approval shall be effective unless notice thereof shall be received by Client from Purchaser (either in writing or electronically via any internet accessible website provided by Purchaser to Client in connection herewith). No such credit approval or terms of sale of a Purchased Account shall be changed without Purchaser’s approval (either in writing or electronically via any internet accessible website provided by Purchaser to Client in connection herewith). If there is any material change in the amount, terms, shipping date or delivery date for any shipment of goods or rendition of services under a Purchased Account (a “Change of Terms”), Client shall submit a change of
terms request to Purchaser and Purchaser shall advise Client of Purchaser’s decision either to retain the Credit Risk or to withdraw the credit approval for such Purchased Account. Purchaser shall have the right, at any time, to withdraw or adjust a credit line of a Customer (provided such withdrawal or adjustment shall not be effective with respect to Purchased Accounts then outstanding). Purchaser shall not be liable to any person or in any manner for refusing to approve the credit of any Customer.
Section 1.3 Written Schedules. Client shall from time to time deliver to Purchaser electronically, using the internet accessible website made available by Purchaser to Client for such purpose, schedules of all Approved Accounts (which shall include the invoice details for each such Approved Account) offered by Client for sale and assignment to Purchaser hereunder, together with copies of Customer’s invoices or their equivalent and conclusive evidence of delivery for all goods sold or rendition of services and all other information or documents, as Purchaser may reasonably require.
Section 1.4 Payment of Purchase Price. As consideration for the assignment and sale of a Purchased Account to Purchaser, Purchaser shall pay to the Client the Purchase Price for such Purchased Account in accordance with the terms hereof. The Initial Payment of the Purchase Price for a Purchased Account shall be payable on the date such Account is purchased by Purchaser hereunder and the Settlement Date Payment of the Purchase Price for a Purchased Account shall be payable on the first Business Day after the Settlement Date for such Purchased Account. Purchaser shall remit to Client the Purchase Price for a Purchased Account by credit of the same to the Client Ledger Account. Within one (1) Business Day after the Conversion Date for a Purchased Account that is an Unbilled Account, and so long as such Purchased Account is not subject to a Repurchase Event, the Initial Payment of the Purchase Price for such Purchased Account shall be recalculated using the Purchase Price Rate for Purchased Accounts that are not Unbilled Accounts and Purchaser shall pay to Client, by credit to the Client Ledger Account, any increase in such Initial Payment resulting from such recalculation.
Section 1.5 Assumption of Credit Risk. Upon the purchase of a Purchased Account, Purchaser shall assume the Credit Risk thereon, but not the risk of non-payment of such Purchased Account for any other reason. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, Purchaser’s Credit Risk on a Purchased Account shall not include any Customer’s inability to pay a Purchased Account at its longest maturity as a result of acts of war, acts of God, civil strife, currency restrictions or foreign political impediments. Client shall be liable to Purchaser for all representations, warranties, covenants and indemnities made by Client pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, all of which obligations are limited so as not to constitute recourse to Client for the failure of any Customer to pay any Purchased Account solely as a result of an Insolvency Event with respect to such Customer or non-payment of such Purchased Account where such Customer has not asserted and does not assert a Commercial Dispute.
Section 1.6 No Commitment to Purchase; No Liability. Except with respect to Approved Accounts for which Purchaser has accepted for purchase and remitted the Initial Payment of the Purchase Price in accordance with the terms hereof, Purchaser shall have no obligation to accept any offer to sell, or otherwise to purchase, any Account from Client and nothing in this Agreement or otherwise constitutes a commitment on the part of Purchaser to make any such purchase. Purchaser may reject any offer from time to time in its sole discretion, including to the extent that the Liquidity of Client is less than $100,000,000 but in any event without any requirement or obligation for notice or explanation to Client as to the basis for such determination. No such obligation or commitment with respect to any Account shall be implied by any act or omission of Purchaser, or on its behalf, other than the payment by Purchaser to Client of the Initial Payment of the Purchase Price for such Purchased Account in accordance with the terms hereof. Purchaser shall have no liability to Client or to any other Person for declining to accept any offer to purchase an Account or the withdrawal or revocation of any acceptance of an offer to
purchase an Account on the basis of the failure of any of the conditions to such purchase to be satisfied in the determination of Purchaser.
Section 1.7 Repurchase of Accounts
1.7.1 During the continuance of a Repurchase Event with respect to a Purchased Account (whether before, on or after the Settlement Date of such Purchased Account), Purchaser may, upon notice to Client, require Client to pay to Purchaser the Repurchase Price in respect of such Purchased Account.
1.7.2 The payment of the Repurchase Price for Purchased Accounts, any Discount Fee and any other amounts at any time owing by Client to Purchaser shall be made, at the option of Purchaser, either by: (a) setoff against any amount at any time owing by Purchaser to Client, including, without limitation, the Purchase Price for any Purchased Account, (b) debit or deduction from any deposit account of Client or the Client Ledger Account or (c) a cash payment by Client to Purchaser. All such payments by Client to Purchaser shall be made without offset, defense, or counterclaim of any kind, nature or description and, with respect to cash payments, to the WFB Bank Account or to such other account specified by Purchaser to Client for such purpose. Client may re-offer for sale to Purchaser hereunder any Account that has been repurchased by Client from Purchaser hereunder and Purchaser may, but shall have no obligation to, accept such re-offer.
1.7.3 If Purchaser has exercised its option to require that Client repurchase a Purchased Account, then upon the payment by or on behalf of such Client of the Repurchase Price for such Purchased Account, such Purchased Account shall be deemed to be sold by Purchaser back to Client without further action or payment, and without recourse, representation or warranty. If after receipt of any payment, Purchaser is required to surrender or return such payment to any Person for any reason, then the obligations intended to be satisfied by such payment shall be reinstated and continue and this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect as if such payment had not been received by Purchaser.
Section 1.8 No Assumption of Obligations Related to Purchased Accounts. Purchaser shall not have any obligation or liability to any Customer in respect of a Purchased Account or other customer of Client. No such obligation or liability is intended to be assumed hereunder by Purchaser, and any such assumption is expressly disclaimed.
Section 1.9 True Sales. Client and Purchaser intend that the conveyances and transfers of the Purchased Accounts hereunder be true sales by Client to Purchaser that are absolute and irrevocable and that provide Purchaser with the full benefits of ownership of the Purchased Assets, and neither Client, Purchaser intends the transactions contemplated hereunder to be, or for any purpose to be characterized as, loans from Purchaser to Client or an assignment by way of security by Client to Purchaser.
Section 2.1 Client Ledger Account
2.1.1 Purchaser shall record in the Client Ledger Account all debits, credits and other entries for all transactions between Client and Purchaser hereunder or under any Other Agreement, without limitation, all purchases from Client of Purchased Accounts, payments to such Client of the Purchase Price of such Purchased Accounts, collections of such Purchased Accounts, and charges for which Client is liable hereunder or under any Other Agreement, including, without limitation, amounts due for any Repurchase Price, discount, fees, costs, expenses and taxes.
2.1.2 At Client’s written request, any credit balance in the Client Ledger Account shall be released to Client. Should the Client Ledger Account at any time have a deficit balance, Purchaser shall provide Client with written notice thereof and such Client shall pay to the Purchaser the amount of such deficit on or before the date and in accordance with the wire transfer instructions specified in such written notice.
2.1.3 Purchaser shall make available to Client an internet accessible website which will permit Client to view all debits, credits and other entries made by Purchaser to the Client Ledger Account during specific periods. Client agrees to log on to the internet accessible website provided by Purchaser no less frequently than monthly, and Client shall review all transactions posted to the Client Ledger Account through the last day of each month. All postings to the Client Ledger Account for each month shall be subject to subsequent adjustment by Purchaser but shall, absent manifest error, be conclusively presumed to be correct and accurate and constitute an account stated between Client and Purchaser unless, within 60 days after the last day of any month, Client shall deliver to Purchaser written objection to the postings for such month describing the error or errors contained in any such postings.
2.1.4 Client hereby unconditionally promises to pay to Purchaser all amounts due from Client to Purchaser, as and when due, without deduction or setoff, regardless of any defense or counterclaim, in accordance with this Agreement. Client hereby irrevocably authorizes Purchaser, from time to time and without prior notice to Client, to charge to the Client Ledger Account all amounts, including, without limitation, the amount of any Repurchase Price, all Discount Fees, and all other costs, fees, expenses and other charges, payable by Client hereunder or under any of the Other Agreements.

All invoices evidencing Accounts owing from Customers whose Accounts are at any time purchased by Purchaser hereunder shall prominently indicate that the Account evidenced by such invoice is payable to Client, at the Collection Accounts (or, during the continuance of a Servicer Default, such other lockboxes or accounts as Purchaser may from time to time specify). If any checks, remittances, other items of payment or other Proceeds of Purchased Assets are received by Client, Client shall hold the same in trust for the benefit of Purchaser and will immediately deposit all such checks, remittances and other items of payment and other Proceeds of Purchased Assets into the applicable Collection Account. The Collection Accounts as of the date hereof are listed on Schedule 2.2 hereto.
2.2.2 Client shall not change (or, if Client is then acting as Servicer, permit Servicer to change) the Collection Accounts unless (a) Client shall have provided Purchaser with prior written notice as required under Section 11.3, and (b) the financial institution at which such Collection Account is maintained is reasonably acceptable to Purchaser.
2.2.3 [Intentionally Omitted].
2.2.4 If Purchaser is required to repay, refund or otherwise disgorge any payment received by Purchaser for an Account of Client (other than with respect to any repayment, refund or other disgorgement of Proceeds of a Purchased Account that is not the subject of a Commercial Dispute or Repurchase Event), Client hereby indemnifies, saves and holds harmless Purchaser with respect to such payment and the amount of the repayment by Purchaser shall be part of the Indemnified Amounts, notwithstanding any termination of this Agreement.
2.2.5 In the event Client at any time receives a payment from Purchaser with respect to any Account to which Client has no rights, repayment of such payment shall be part of the obligations of Client to Purchaser, whether or not this Agreement has been terminated, and any such amounts shall be paid to Purchaser and shall be included in the Indemnified Amounts.
2.2.6 If Purchaser receives a duplicate payment with respect to an Account or other payment which is not identified as applicable to an outstanding Account, Purchaser will account for such payment as an open item and either return any duplicate or unidentified payment to the Customer or, in Purchaser’s discretion, apply such unidentified payment pursuant to the terms hereof upon proper identification and documentation acceptable to Purchaser.

If, notwithstanding the intention of the parties expressed in Section 1.9 hereof, the sale and assignment by Client to Purchaser of the Purchased Assets hereunder shall be characterized other than as true sales by a court of competent jurisdiction, this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under the UCC and other applicable law. For this purpose, Client hereby grants Purchaser a first priority security interest in all of Client’s rights in, to and under the Purchased Assets to secure the timely payment by Client of amounts owing by Client to Purchaser hereunder.
