4. Borrower hereby represents and warrants that, as of the Effective Date, there is no Default or Event of Default, the representations and warranties contained in Article 6 of the Original Credit Agreement are true and correct in all material respects, Borrower has no offsets or claims against Lender and Borrower has full power and authority to execute this Amendment.
