FOR VALUE RECEIVED, PROGRESSIVE HEALTH & REHABILITATION, LTD. (the “Borrower”), with an address at 1283 West Dundee Road, Buffalo Grove, IL 60089-4009, promises to pay to the order of PNC BANK, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION (the “Bank”), in lawful money of the United States of America in immediately available funds at its offices located at 935 North Elmhurst Road, Mt, Prospect, Illinois 60056, or at such other location as the Bank may designate from time to time, the principal sum of ONE HUNDRED FORTY THOUSAND AND 00/100 DOLLARS ($140,000.00) (the “Facility”), together with interest accruing on the outstanding principal balance from the date hereof, all as provided below.


1. Rate of Interest. Amounts outstanding under this Note will bear interest at a rate per annum (“Fixed Rate”) which is at all times equal to five and thirty-nine hundredths percent (5.39%). Interest will be calculated based on the actual number of days that principal is outstanding over a year of 360 days. In no event will the rate of interest hereunder exceed the maximum rate allowed by law.


2. Payment Terms. Principal and interest shall be due and payable in thirty-six (36) equal consecutive monthly installments, based upon a thirty-six (36) month amortization, in the amount of $4,225.46 each (the “Level Payment Amount”), commencing on October 19, 2019 and continuing on the same day of each month thereafter, Any outstanding principal and accrued interest shall be due and payable in frill on September 19, 2022, The Level Payment Amount is calculated on the assumption that each periodic payment will be made on the date when due, and if there is any variation in the actual payment dates, there may be an additional amount due upon maturity of this Note. Any amortization schedule provided to Borrower is only an estimate, and is superseded by the terms of this Note regarding the accrual and payment of interest. The Level Payment Amount may be adjusted upward from time to time by the Bank in its discretion if any payment(s) are made by the Borrower after their respective due date(s).


If any payment under this Note shall become due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in computing interest in connection with such payment. “Business Day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday or Sunday or a legal holiday on which commercial banks arc authorized or required by law to be closed for business in Mt. Prospect, Illinois. The Borrower hereby authorizes the Bank to charge the Borrower’s deposit account at the Bank for any payment when due. If the Borrower revokes this authorization for any reason whatsoever or fails to maintain a deposit account with the Bank which may be charged, the Bank may, at its option, upon thirty (30) days’ notice to the Borrower, increase the interest rate payable by the Borrower under this Note by twenty-five (25) basis points (0.25%), Payments received will be applied to charges, fees and expenses (including attorneys’ fees), accrued interest and principal in any order the Bank may choose, in its sole discretion.




3. Late Payments; Default Rate. If the Borrower fails to make any payment of principal, interest or other amount coming due pursuant to the provisions of this Note within fifteen (15) calendar days of the date due and payable, the Borrower also shall pay to the Bank a late charge equal to the lesser of five percent (5%) of the amount of such payment or $100.00 (the “Late Charge”). Such fifteen (15) day period shall not be construed in any way to extend the due date of any such payment, Upon maturity, whether by acceleration, demand or otherwise, and at the Bank’s option upon the occurrence of any Event of Default (as hereinafter defined) and during the continuance thereof, each advance outstanding under this Note shall bear interest at a rate per annum (based on the actual number of days that principal is outstanding over a year of 360 days) which shall be five percentage points (5.00%) in excess of the interest rate in effect from time to time under this Note but not more than the maximum rate allowed by law (the “Default Rate”). The Default Rate shall continue to apply whether or not judgment shall be entered on this Note, Both the Late Charge and the Default Rate are imposed as liquidated damages for the purpose of defraying the Bank’s expenses incident to the handling of delinquent payments, but are in addition to, and not in lieu of, the Bank’s exercise of any rights and remedies hereunder, under the other Loan Documents or under applicable law, and any fees and expenses of any agents or attorneys which the Bank may employ. In addition, the Default Rate reflects the increased credit risk to the Bank of carrying a loan that is in default. The Borrower agrees that the Late Charge and Default Rate are reasonable forecasts of just compensation for anticipated and actual harm incurred by the Bank, and that the actual harm incurred by the Bank cannot be estimated with certainty and without difficulty.


4. Prepayment Fee. The Borrower shall have the right to prepay any advance hereunder at any time and from time to time, in whole or in part; provided, however, the Borrower shall pay to the Bank, as compensation for the cost of being prepared to advance fixed rate funds hereunder, a prepayment fee calculated as follows (the “Prepayment Fee”): (i) three percent (3.00%) of any principal amount prepaid during the first year after the date of this Note; (ii) two percent (2.00%) of any principal amount prepaid during the second year after the date of this Note; (iii) one percent (1.00%) of any principal amount prepaid during the third year after the date of this Note; and (iv) there shall be no Prepayment Fee with respect to any principal amounts prepaid thereafter. Any prepayment arising out of or relating to the direct or indirect refinancing of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note shall be deemed a prepayment subject to the payment of a Prepayment Fee calculated in accordance with this paragraph. The Prepayment Fee shall also apply to any payments made after acceleration of the maturity of this Note while a fixed rate is in effect. A notice as to any amounts payable pursuant to this paragraph given to the Borrower by the Bank shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive and shall be payable upon demand.


5. Increased Costs: Yield Protection. On written demand, together with written evidence of the justification therefor, the Borrower agrees to pay the Bank all direct costs incurred, any losses suffered or payments made by the Bank as a result of any Change in Law (hereinafter defined), imposing any reserve, deposit, allocation of capital or similar requirement (including without limitation, Regulation D of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System) on the Bank, its holding company or any of their respective assets relative to the Facility. “Change in Law” means the occurrence, after the date of this Note, of any of the following: (a) the adoption or taking effect of any law, rule, regulation or treaty, (b) any change in any law, rule, regulation or treaty or in the administration, interpretation, implementation or application thereof by any governmental authority or (c) the making or issuance of any request, rule, guideline or directive (whether or not having the force of law) by any governmental authority; provided that notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (x) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith and (y) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, shall in each case be deemed to be a “Change in Law”, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued.

The Borrower hereby forever waives and releases all errors in said proceedings and all rights of appeal and all relief from any and all appraisement, stay or exemption laws of any state now in force or hereafter enacted.

No single exercise of the foregoing power to confess judgment, or a series of judgments, shall be deemed to exhaust the power, whether or not any such exercise shall be held by any court to be invalid, voidable, or void, but the power shall continue undiminished and it may be exercised from time to time as often as the Bank shall elect until such time as the Bank shall have received payment in full of the debt, interest and costs. Notwithstanding the attorney’s commission provided for in the preceding paragraph (which is included in the warrant for purposes of establishing a sum certain), the amount of attorneys’ fees that the Bank may recover from the Borrower shall not exceed the actual attorneys’ fees incurred by the Bank.








The Borrower acknowledges that it has read and understood all the provisions of this Note, including the confession of judgment and waiver of jury trial, and has been advised by counsel as necessary or appropriate.


WITNESS the due execution hereof as a document under seal, as of the date first written above, with the intent to be legally bound hereby.
