A. Bank and Borrower have entered into that certain Second Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement dated as of October 1, 2019 (as the same may from time to time be amended, modified, supplemented or restated, the “Loan Agreement”). Bank has extended credit to Borrower for the purposes permitted in the Loan Agreement.
B. Borrower (i) failed to make its payments of principal and interest on the Second Supplemental Term Loan that were due April 1, 2020, May 1, 2020, and June 1, 2020, pursuant to Section 2.1.1(b)(ii) of the Loan Agreement, (ii) failed to pay the deferral fee of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000) that was due April 1, 2020, pursuant to Section 2.3(a) of the Loan Agreement, and (iii) failed to comply with certain covenants, as identified to Bank in writing as of the date hereof, set forth in the Loan Agreement during the period from October 1, 2019 through the date of this Amendment (each of the foregoing, the “Existing Defaults”). Bank and Borrower have been in active discussions to resolve the payment defaults set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) above during the negotiation of this Amendment.
C. Borrower has requested that Bank waive its rights and remedies against Borrower, limited specifically to the Existing Defaults. Although Bank is under no obligation to do so, Bank is willing to not exercise its rights and remedies against Borrower related to the specific Existing Defaults on the terms and conditions set forth in this Amendment, so long as Borrower complies with the terms, covenants and conditions set forth in this Amendment.
D. Borrower has further requested that Bank amend the Loan Agreement to (i) modify the repayment schedule and (ii) make certain other revisions to the Loan Agreement as more fully set forth herein. Bank has agreed to so amend certain provisions of the Loan Agreement, but only to the extent, in accordance with the terms, subject to the conditions and in reliance upon the representations and warranties set forth below.
