Upon the expiration of the Revolving Loan Period, and provided that no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Revolving Loans shall, without any further action by Bank or Borrower, convert to a term loan (the Term Loan) in accordance with the terms of the Promissory Note.
Borrower shall initiate each Loan Advance by submitting to Bank a written Advance Request no later than 1:00 p.m., Jacksonville, Florida time, on the Advance Date. Bank shall have no liability to Borrower for any loss or damage suffered by Borrower as a result of Banks honoring of any requests, execution of any instructions, authorizations or agreements or reliance on any reports communicated to it telephonically, by facsimile or electronically, and purporting to have been sent to Bank by Borrower and Bank shall have no duty to verify the origin of any such communication or the identity or authority of the Person sending it.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Loan Advance shall be made available to Borrower by depositing the same, in immediately available funds, in an account of Borrower designated by Borrower maintained with Bank. If the conditions to making a Loan Advance as set forth in Section 5 are satisfied, then no later than the Advance Date, Bank shall reflect on its computer system the Loan Advance (the Confirmation).
In the event Borrower disagrees with any terms of the Confirmation, Borrower shall immediately notify Bank of such disagreement.

(b) Any Confirmation by Bank shall be deemed received by Borrower on the date the Confirmation is posted on Banks computer system.
(c) Except as set forth in Section 3(a), each Confirmation, together with this Agreement, shall constitute conclusive evidence of the terms agreed between Bank and Borrower with respect to the Loan Advance to which the Confirmation relates, and Borrowers acceptance of the related proceeds shall constitute Borrowers agreement to the terms of such Confirmation. It is the intention of the parties that each Confirmation shall not be separate from this Agreement but shall be made a part of this Agreement.
(d) In no event shall Bank fund any Loan Advance when any Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.
(e) The Loan shall be evidenced by, be repayable, and accrue interest in accordance with, the Note. The unpaid principal balance of the Note shall be repaid as provided therein. Borrower agrees that Bank is authorized to record on the Note (i) the date and amount of each Loan Advance made by Bank pursuant hereto and (ii) the date and amount of each payment of principal of each Loan Advance, in the books and records of Bank in such manner as is reasonable and customary for Bank, and that a certificate of an officer of Bank, setting forth in reasonable detail the information so recorded, shall constitute prima facie evidence of the accuracy of the information so recorded, absent manifest error; provided that the failure to make any such recording shall not in any way affect the Obligations of Borrower or the rights of Bank hereunder or under the Note. Subject to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, the Note, and the other Loan Documents, Borrower may borrow, repay, and reborrow under the Note during the Revolving Loan Period.
(f) If at any time the aggregate outstanding principal balance of the Loan exceeds the Borrowing Base in effect at such time (including without limitation as a result of a breach of the representation and warranty set forth in Section 2(a)(22)), as determined by Bank (such excess, a Borrowing Base Deficiency), then Bank may by notice to Borrower require Borrower to transfer to Bank cash in an amount at least equal to the Borrowing Base Deficiency (such requirement, a Margin Call). Notice delivered pursuant to this Section 3(f) may be given by any written or electronic means. Any notice given before 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on a Business Day shall be met, and the related Margin Call satisfied, no later than 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on the 3rd Business Day following such notice. The failure of Bank, on any one or more occasions, to exercise its rights hereunder, shall not change or alter the terms and conditions to which this Agreement is subject or limit the right of Bank to do so at a later date. Borrower and Bank each agree that a failure or delay by Bank to exercise its rights hereunder shall not limit or waive Banks rights under this Agreement or otherwise existing by law or in any way create additional rights for Borrower. Bank may in its commercially reasonable discretion accept the pledge of additional Collateral rather than cash to satisfy any Margin Calls.
(g) If a scheduled payment under the Note is not made in a timely manner, Bank is authorized by Borrower to debit the amount of any such payments from the general deposit account of Borrower with Bank.

Bank, as a courtesy to Borrower but without obligation or liability for failure to do
so, will endeavor to notify Borrower of any such assignees, participants, subservicers or mortgage originators, or prospective assignees, participants, subservicers or mortgage originators, to which Bank disseminates any of the information described above.

The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrower, and the lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.
(l) Except as otherwise provided in the Loan Documents or otherwise agreed by Bank, all payments and prepayments of the Obligations, including proceeds from the exercise of any rights under the Loan Documents or proceeds of any of the Collateral, shall be applied to the Obligations in the following order, any instructions from Borrower to the contrary notwithstanding: (a) to the expenses for which Bank shall not have been reimbursed under the Loan Documents, and then to all indemnified amounts due under the Loan Documents; (b) to fees then owed Bank hereunder or under any other Loan Document; (c) to accrued interest on the portion of the Loan Advance being paid or prepaid; (d) to the principal portion of the Loan Advance being paid or prepaid; (e) to the remaining accrued interest on the Loan; (f) to the remaining principal portion of the Loan; and (g) to any remaining Obligations.

The property subject to the security interest reflected in this instrument includes all of the right, title and interest of LoanDepot.com, LLC (Debtor) in certain mortgages and/or participation interests related to such mortgages (Pooled Mortgages) and pooled under the mortgage-backed securities program of the Government National Mortgage Association (Ginnie Mae), pursuant to section 306(g) of the National Housing Act, 12 U.S.C. § 1721(g);
To the extent that the security interest reflected in this instrument relates in any way to the Pooled Mortgages, such security interest is subject and subordinate to all rights, powers and prerogatives of Ginnie Mae, whether now existing or hereafter arising, under and in connection with: (i) 12 U.S.C. § 1721(g) and any implementing regulations; (ii) the terms and conditions of that certain Acknowledgment Agreement, with respect to the Security Interest, by and between Ginnie Mae, Debtor and EverBank; (iii) applicable Guaranty Agreements and contractual agreements between Ginnie Mae and the Debtor; and (iv) the Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Guide, Handbook 5500.3 Rev. 1, and other applicable guides; and

(i) The value of all Servicing Rights and/or Pledged Servicing Rights, as applicable, to Bank shall be periodically determined as required by Bank, and the Borrowing Base shall be adjusted to reflect each such determination and updating of the value of such Collateral; provided that, notwithstanding any other provision hereof to the contrary, Bank shall have the right, exercisable from time to time (daily or less often) in its sole discretion on any day after the occurrence and during the continuance of any Default or Event of Default to mark the Servicing Rights to market, whereupon, for purposes of determining the value of the Collateral for that day (and for each day thereafter until it shall thereafter be evaluated or re-evaluated by such an approved appraiser or broker or again marked to market by Bank) such Servicing Rights shall be equal to the market value on that day as determined by Bank in its sole and absolute discretion without regard to the then-current Servicing Rights Appraisal (which market value Borrower acknowledges may be nominal). Borrower acknowledges that a determination by Bank of market value pursuant to this Agreement is for the limited purpose of determining value of the Collateral for lending purposes under this Agreement without the ability to perform customary purchasers due diligence and is not necessarily equivalent to a determination of the fair market value of Collateral achieved by obtaining competing bids in an orderly market in which the servicer is not in default, insolvent or the subject of a case in bankruptcy and the bidders have adequate opportunity to perform customary diligence.
(j) In the event that the buyer under the Mortgage Warehouse Agreement releases its security interest in any Purchased Mortgage Loans or other assets in which such buyer has a security interest under the Warehouse Loan Agreement, then (except under the circumstances specified in the last sentence of section (c) of Exhibit I hereto), any security interest in such Purchased Mortgage Loans or other assets that has been granted to Bank hereunder shall automatically and without further action on the part of Bank be released hereunder.

9. Rights upon Event of Default. If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, Bank may without notice terminate this Agreement and declare the Loan and the Obligations or any part thereof to be immediately due and payable, and the same shall thereupon become immediately due and payable, without notice, demand, presentment, notice of dishonor, notice of acceleration, notice of intent to accelerate, notice of intent to demand, protest, or other formalities of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived by Borrower; provided, however, that upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under Section 8(f), this Agreement shall automatically terminate and the Loan and the Obligations shall become immediately due and payable without notice, demand, presentment, notice of dishonor, notice of acceleration, notice of intent to accelerate, notice of intent to demand, protest, or other formalities of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived by Borrower. If any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, subject to the requirements of any applicable Acknowledgment Agreement, Bank may exercise all rights and remedies available to it in law or in equity, under the Loan Documents, or otherwise, including without limitation:
(a) in its discretion, to demand, sue for, collect or receive and receipt for (in its own name, in the name of Borrower or otherwise) any money or property at any time payable or receivable on account of any of the Collateral, in consideration of its transfer or in exchange for it;
(b) direct, and to take any and all other steps necessary to cause, any Servicer of any of the Collateral to pay over directly to Bank for the account of Borrower (instead of to Borrower or any other Person) all sums from time to time due to Borrower and to take any and all other actions that Borrower or Bank has the right to take under Borrowers contract with such Servicer;
(c) direct Borrower to pay over to Bank all sums from time to time due Borrower under or in respect of the Collateral, including any and all fees and other compensation under the Servicing Agreements for servicing the Serviced Loans and all amounts paid to or collectable by Borrower to pay Pledged Servicing Receivables, whether paid to Borrower or withheld or recovered by Borrower from collections and realizations on such Mortgage Loans or any other source, and to take any and all other actions that, subject to any restrictions imposed by the relevant Servicing Agreement for the benefit of the party to it on whose behalf the Mortgaged Loans are being serviced (to the extent that such restrictions are valid and enforceable under the UCC and all applicable laws, rules and regulations), Borrower or Bank has the right to take under that Servicing Agreement, and if Bank does so request, then Borrower shall diligently and continuously thereafter comply with such request. All amounts so received and collected by Bank pursuant to this Section 9(c) shall be applied in the same order and manner as is specified in Section 3(l);
(d) foreclose upon or otherwise enforce its security interest in and Lien on the Collateral, or on such portions or elements of the Collateral as Bank shall elect to proceed against from time to time;
(e) at Banks option and in its sole discretion, to notify any or all Makers obligated under any or all items of Collateral, that the Collateral has been assigned to Bank and that all payments thereon are to be made directly to Bank or such other Person as may be designated by Bank; to settle, compromise, or release, in whole or in part, any amounts owing on the Collateral or any portion of the Collateral, on terms acceptable to Bank; enforce payment and performance and prosecute any action or proceeding with respect to any and all Collateral; and where any such Collateral is in default, foreclose on and enforce Liens or security interests in, such Collateral by any available judicial procedure or without judicial process and sell property acquired as a result of any such foreclosure;
(f) act, or contract with one or more third Persons to act, as Servicer of each item of Collateral requiring servicing and perform all obligations required in connection with any Servicing Agreements to which Borrower is a party, and Borrower hereby agrees to pay such third Persons fees to the extent (if any) that Bank is unable, despite reasonable efforts made by Bank in light of the necessity that there be no material break in the continuity of servicing, to contract for such servicing and performance of such obligations for fees equal to or less than the fees under such Servicing Agreements;
(g) as a matter of right and without notice to Borrower or anyone claiming under Borrower, and without regard to the then value of the Collateral or the interest of Borrower therein, to apply to any court having jurisdiction to appoint a receiver or receivers of the Collateral, and Borrower hereby irrevocably consents to such appointment and waives notice of any application therefor. Any such receiver or receivers shall have all the usual powers and duties of receivers in like or similar cases and all the powers and duties of Bank in case of entry as provided herein and shall continue as such and exercise all such powers until the date of the sale of the Collateral unless such receivership is sooner terminated; and
(h) exercise all rights and remedies of a secured creditor under the UCC, including selling the interests of Borrower in the Collateral at public or private sale. Bank shall give Borrower not less than 10 days notice of any such public sale or of the date after which private sale may be held. Borrower agrees that 10 days notice shall be reasonable notice. At any such sale any or all of the Collateral may be sold as an entirety or in separate parts, as Bank may determine in its sole discretion. Bank may, without notice or publication, adjourn any public or private sale or cause the same to be adjourned from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed for the sale, and such sale may be made at any time or place to which the same may be so adjourned. Bank is authorized at any such sale, if Bank deems it advisable so to do, to restrict the prospective bidders or purchasers to Persons who will represent and agree that they are purchasing the Collateral for their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale of any of
the Collateral. Borrower specifically agrees that any such sale, whether public or private, of any Collateral pursuant to the commitment of any investor to purchase such Collateral that was obtained by (or with the approval of) Borrower will be commercially reasonable, and if such sale is for the price provided for in such commitment, then such sale shall be held to be for value reasonably equivalent to the value of the Collateral so sold. Upon any such sale, Bank shall have the right to deliver, assign and transfer to the purchaser thereof the Collateral so sold. Each purchaser at any such sale shall hold the property sold absolutely free from any claim or right of whatsoever kind, including any equity or right of redemption, stay or appraisal which Borrower has or may have under any rule of law or statute now existing or hereafter adopted. In case of any sale of all or any part of the Collateral on credit or for future delivery, the Collateral so sold may be retained by Bank until the selling price is paid by the purchaser, but Bank shall not incur any liability in case of such purchasers failure to take up and pay for the Collateral so sold and, in case of any such failure, such Collateral may again be sold upon like notice. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as Borrowers waiver of, or agreement to waive, any requirement imposed by applicable law that any sale of the Collateral be commercially reasonable.
Borrower waives any right to require Bank to proceed against any third party, exhaust any Collateral or other security for the Obligations, or to have any third party joined with Borrower in any suit arising out of the Obligations or any of the Loan Documents, or pursue any other remedy available to Bank. Borrower further waives any and all notice of acceptance of this Agreement. Borrower further waives any defense arising by reason of any disability or other defense of any third party or by reason of the cessation from any cause whatsoever of the liability of any third party.
All rights available to Bank under the Loan Documents shall be cumulative of and in addition to all other rights granted to Bank at Law or in equity, whether or not the Loan or the Obligations be due and payable or performance required and whether or not Bank shall have instituted any suit for collection, foreclosure, or other action under or in connection with the Loan Documents.
Borrower hereby grants to Bank the nonexclusive right to use (in common with Borrower and any other secured party that has a valid and enforceable security interest therein and that agrees that its security interest is similarly nonexclusive), at any time following the occurrence of an Event of Default that has not been waived by Bank or cured, Borrowers operating systems to manage and administer the Pledged Servicing Rights and any of the related data and information that constitutes Collateral, or that otherwise relates to the Pledged Servicing Rights, together with the media on which the same are stored to the extent stored with material information or data that relates to property other than the Pledged Servicing Rights (tapes, discs, cards, drives, flash memory or any other kind of physical or virtual data or information storage media or systems, and Borrowers rights to access the same, whether exclusive or nonexclusive, to the extent that such access rights may lawfully be transferred or used by Borrowers permittees), and any computer programs that are owned by Borrower (or licensed to Borrower under licenses that may lawfully be transferred or used by Borrowers permittees) and that are used or useful to access, organize, input, read, print or otherwise output and otherwise handle or use such information and data.
10. Termination. This Agreement shall remain in effect until the Termination Date. However, no such termination shall affect any Loan Advance previously consummated or the rights and obligations of Borrower and Bank with respect thereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (a) Bank hereby agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain within sixty (60) days after the date hereof (the Approval Period) Bank credit committee approval to include by an amendment to this Agreement a sublimit of the existing Maximum Loan Amount for Borrower-paid advances required by Approved Servicing Agreements and (ii) in the event Bank is unable to obtain such approval prior to the end of the Approval Period, then for thirty (30) days following the end of the Approval Period Borrower shall have the right, by written notice to Bank, to terminate this Agreement on a specified date not less than sixty (60) nor more than ninety (90) days after the date of such notice of exercise. Borrowers exercise of such right shall be irrevocable and on or prior to the specified date (which shall be deemed a Termination Date for the purposes of this Agreement), Borrower shall pay to Bank all outstanding obligations.
11. Miscellaneous Provisions.
(a) Assignment; Rehypothecation. Borrower may not assign its rights or Obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of Bank. Bank may at any time assign or pledge its rights and obligations under this Agreement to any other party. Subject to the foregoing, all provisions contained in this Agreement or any document or agreement referred to herein or relating hereto shall inure to the benefit of Bank, its successors and assigns, and shall be binding upon Borrower, its successors and assigns.
Bank may sell participations to one or more Persons in or to all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement; provided, however, that (i) Banks obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) Bank shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations; and (iii) Borrower shall continue to deal solely and directly with Bank in connection with Banks rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
(b) Amendment. Neither this Agreement nor any of the other Loan Documents may be amended or terms or provisions hereof or thereof waived unless such amendment or waiver is in writing and signed by Bank and Borrower. In the event any governmental regulatory authority with jurisdiction over Bank requires Bank to amend this Agreement for any reason, Bank and Borrower shall negotiate, in good faith, to amend this Agreement to satisfy such government regulatory authoritys requirements. It is expressly agreed and understood that the failure by Bank to elect to accelerate amounts outstanding hereunder or to terminate the obligation of Bank to make Loans hereunder shall not constitute an amendment or waiver of any term or provision of this Agreement.
(c) Cumulative Rights, No Waiver. The rights, powers and remedies of Bank under the Loan Documents are cumulative and in addition to all rights, powers and remedies provided under any and all agreements among Borrower and Bank relating hereto, at law, in equity or otherwise. Any delay or failure by Bank to exercise any right, power or remedy shall not constitute a waiver thereof by Bank, and no single or partial exercise by Bank of any right, power or remedy shall preclude other or further exercise thereof or any exercise of any other rights, powers or remedies.
(d) Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the documents and agreements referred to herein embody the entire agreement and understanding between the parties hereto and supersede all prior written or verbal agreements and understandings relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof.

BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT THE VENUE PROVIDED ABOVE IS THE MOST CONVENIENT FORUM FOR BOTH BORROWER AND BANK. BORROWER WAIVES ANY OBJECTION TO VENUE AND ANY OBJECTION BASED ON A MORE CONVENIENT FORUM IN ANY ACTION INSTITUTED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.
EACH PARTY HERETO KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVES (TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW AND UPON CONFERRING WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE COUNSEL) ANY AND ALL RIGHTS IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY OF ANY DISPUTE ARISING UNDER OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT AND AGREES THAT ANY SUCH DISPUTE SHALL BE TRIED BEFORE A JUDGE SITTING WITHOUT A JURY.
(n) Reimbursement. Borrower shall reimburse Bank for all attorneys fees and expenses incurred by Bank to prepare and negotiate the terms of the Loan Documents. In addition, all sums reasonably expended by Bank in connection with the exercise of any right or remedy provided for herein shall be and remain Borrowers obligation (unless and to the extent that Borrower is the prevailing party in any dispute, claim or action relating thereto). Borrower agrees to pay, with interest at the Default Rate to the extent that an Event of Default has occurred, the reasonable out-of-pocket expenses and reasonable attorneys fees incurred by Bank in connection with the preparation, negotiation, enforcement (including any waivers), administration and amendment of the Loan Documents (regardless of whether a Loan Advance is entered into hereunder), the taking of any action, including legal action, required or permitted to be taken by Bank pursuant thereto, any due diligence or loan agent reviews conducted by Bank or on its behalf or by refinancing or restructuring in the nature of a workout.

(o) Setoff and Withdrawal of Funds; Retention of Funds.

(2) Upon the earlier of (a) thirty (30) days prior to the termination of this Agreement or (b) notification by either party of termination of this Agreement, Bank has the right to retain all funds contained in any deposit account (including, but not limited to, the Pledged Deposit Accounts) and apply and set-off against such deposits as provided in subsection (1) above.
(3) Bank agrees to promptly notify Borrower after any such set-offs and applications made by Bank under this Section 11(o); provided, that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application.
(p) Power of Attorney. Borrower hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints Bank and any officer or agent thereof, with full power of substitution, as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact with full irrevocable power and authority in the place and stead of Borrower and in the name of Borrower or in its own name, from time to time in Banks reasonable discretion (but only following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default), for the purpose of carrying out the terms of this Agreement, including without limitation, protecting, preserving and realizing upon the Collateral, to take any and all appropriate action and to execute any and all documents and instruments which may be necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement, including, without limitation, to protect, preserve and realize upon the Collateral, to file such financing statement or statements relating to the Collateral as Bank at its option may deem appropriate. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Borrower hereby gives Bank the power and right, on behalf of Borrower, without assent by, but with notice to, Borrower, to do the following:
(1) in the name of Borrower, or in its own name, or otherwise, to take possession of and endorse and collect any checks, drafts, notes, acceptances or other instruments for the payment of moneys due with respect to any Collateral and to file any claim or to take any other action or proceeding in any court of law or equity or otherwise deemed appropriate by Bank for the purpose of collecting any and all such moneys due with respect to any Collateral whenever payable;
(2) to pay or discharge taxes and liens levied or placed on or threatened against the Collateral;
(3) (A) to direct any party liable for any payment under any Collateral to make payment of any and all moneys due or to become due thereunder directly to Bank or as Bank shall direct; (B) to ask or demand for, collect, receive payment of and receipt for, any and all moneys, claims and other amounts due or to become due at any time in respect of or arising out of any Collateral; (C) to sign and endorse any invoices, assignments, verifications, notices and other documents in connection with any Collateral; (D) to commence and prosecute any suits, actions or proceedings at law or in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction to collect the Collateral or any proceeds thereof and to enforce any other right in respect of any Collateral; (E) to defend any suit, action or proceeding brought against Borrower with respect to any Collateral; (F) to settle, compromise or adjust any suit, action or proceeding described in clause (E) above and, in connection therewith, to give such discharges or releases as Bank may deem appropriate; and (G) generally, to sell, transfer, pledge and make any agreement with respect to or otherwise deal with any Collateral as fully and completely as though Bank were the absolute owner thereof for all purposes, and to do, at Banks option and Borrowers expense, at any time, and from time to time, all acts and things which Bank deems necessary to protect, preserve or realize upon the Collateral and Banks liens thereon and to effect the intent of this Agreement, all as fully and effectively as Borrower might do;
(4) to request that any Pledged Servicing Right related to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae or any other investor be transferred to Bank or to another approved servicer approved by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae or such other investor (as the case may be) and perform (without assuming or being deemed to have assumed any of the obligations of Borrower thereunder) all aspects of each servicing contract that is Collateral;
(5) request distribution to Bank of sale proceeds or any applicable contract termination fees arising from the sale or termination of such servicing rights and remaining after satisfaction of Borrowers relevant obligations to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae or such other investor (as the case may be), including costs and expenses related to any such sale or transfer of such servicing rights and other amounts due for unmet obligations of Borrower to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Ginnie Mae or such other investor (as the case may be) under applicable Agency Guideline or such other investors contract;
(6) deal with investors and any and all subservicers and master servicers in respect of any of the Collateral in the same manner and with the same effect as if done by Borrower; and
(7) take any action and execute any instruments that Bank deems necessary or advisable to accomplish any of such purposes.
The powers conferred on Bank hereunder are solely to protect Banks interests in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon it to exercise any such powers. Bank shall be accountable only for amounts that it actually receives as a result of the exercise of such powers, and neither it nor any of its officers, directors, employees or agents shall be responsible to Borrower for any act or failure to act hereunder, except for its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.
This power of attorney is a power coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable.
