REVOLVING LINE OF CREDIT AGREEMENT
This Revolving Line of Credit Agreement (the “Agreement”) is made and entered into this 5th day of May, 2020 (the “Effective Date”) by and between Los Angeles Community Capital, a California Corporation (the “Lender”), and Alpharidge Capital LLC., a California limited liability company (“Borrower”).
In consideration of the mutual covenants and agreements contained herein, the parties agree as follows:
|1. Line of Credit. Lenders hereby establishes for a period of sixty (60) months from the Effective Date (|
“Maturity Date”) a revolving line of credit (the “Credit Line”) for Borrower in the principal amount of One Million Five hundred Thousand dollars ($1,500,000) (the “Credit Limit”) which indebtedness shall be evidenced by and repaid in accordance with the terms of a promissory note for the amount of the Credit Limit in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Promissory Note”). All sums advanced on the Credit Line or pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (each an “Advance”) shall become part of the principal of the applicable Promissory Note and shall be used to purchase existing businesses or real estate in the United States of America.
|2. Renewal and Extension of Line of Credit. Provided that Borrower is not in default under this|
Agreement or the Promissory Note, at the Maturity Date, the Borrower, at the Borrower’s option may extend and renew this Credit Line for three additional terms of sixty (60) months each.
|3. Advances, Use of Advance and Security.|
|(a)||Lender agrees to make funds available under this Credit Line on the following schedule:|
|(i)||Upon written notification from borrower which identified the target acquisition; and|
|(ii)||Execution of a security agreement that collateralized the advance/draw against the assets/property to be acquired with the advance.|
(b) Subject to subparagraph (a) above, any request for an Advance may be made from time to time and in such amounts as Borrower may choose, provided, however, any requested Advance will not, when added to the outstanding principal balance of all previous Advances, exceed the Credit Limit. Requests for Advances must be made in writing, delivered to the Lender, by such officer of Borrower authorized by it to request such
advances. Until such time as Lender may be notified otherwise, Borrower hereby authorizes its Chief Executive Officer or its Chief Financial Officer to request Advances. For each Advance, properly requested, the Lender shall advance an amount equal to the Advance amount. The Lender may refuse to make any requested Advance if an event of default has occurred and is continuing hereunder either at the time the request is given or the date the Advance is to be made, or if an event has occurred or condition exists which, with the giving of notice or passing of time or both, would constitute an event of default hereunder as of such dates.
|4. Interest. All sums advanced pursuant to this Agreement shall bear interest from the date each|
Advance is made until paid in full at an interest rate of zero percent (0%) simple interest per annum (the “Interest Rate”). Interest will be calculated on a basis of a 360-day year and charged for the actual number of days elapsed.
5. Developer fees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon the sale of any property purchased with the loan, the lender would receive a developer fee of 10% of sale price/amount of each property sold that was bought with the loan until the Credit Line has been repaid in full and all of Borrower’s other obligations to Lender hereunder have been fully paid and discharged.
|6. Conditions Precedent. Lender shall not be required to make any advance hereunder unless and|
(a) All of the documents required by such Lender, including a Promissory Note, have been duly executed and delivered to such Lender and shall be in full force and effect.
(b) The representations and warranties contained in this Agreement are then true with the same effect as though the representations and warranties had been made at such time. The request for an Advance by Borrower shall constitute a reaffirmation to Lender that all representations and warranties made herein remain true and correct in all material respects to the same extent as though given the time such request is made, and that all conditions precedent listed in this Paragraph 5 have been, and continue to be, satisfied in all respects as of the date such request is made.
(c) No event of default hereunder has occurred and is continuing, and no condition exists or event has occurred which, with the passing of time or the giving of notice or both, would constitute an event of default hereunder.
