In any suit, proceeding, or action brought by the Lender relating to any Collateral for any sum owing with respect thereto or to enforce any rights or claims with respect thereto, the Grantor will save, indemnify, and keep the Lender harmless from and against all expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses), loss, or damage suffered by reason of any defense, setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, or reduction of liability whatsoever of the Account Debtor or other Person obligated on the Collateral, arising out of a breach by the Grantor of any obligation thereunder or arising out of any other agreement, indebtedness or liability at any time owing to, or in favor of, such obligor or its successors from the Grantor, except to the extent such expense, loss, or damage is resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Lender as determined by a final non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction. All such obligations of the Grantor shall be and remain enforceable against and only against the Grantor and shall not be enforceable against the Lender.
Limitation on Liens on Collateral. The Grantor will not create, permit, or suffer to exist, and will take commercially reasonable efforts to defend the Collateral against, and take such other action as is necessary to remove, any Lien on the Collateral, except Permitted Liens, and will defend the rights of the Lender and Lenders in and to any of the Grantor’s rights under the Collateral against the claims and demands of all Persons whomsoever.
- 14 -
Limitations on Disposition. The Grantor will not sell, license, lease, transfer, or otherwise dispose of any of the Collateral, except as permitted by the Loan Agreement.
Terminations; Amendments Not Authorized. The Grantor acknowledges that it is not authorized to file any financing statement or amendment or termination statement with respect to any financing statement without the prior written consent of the Lender and agrees that it will not do so without the prior written consent of the Lender, subject to the Grantor’s rights under Section 9-509(d)(2) of the UCC.
The Lender’s Appointment as Attorney-in-Fact.
The Grantor hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints the Lender, 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 the Grantor and in the name of the Grantor or in its own name, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of the Loan Documents, to take any appropriate action and to execute any document or instrument that may be necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes of the Loan Documents, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Grantor hereby gives the Lender the power and right, on behalf of the Grantor, without notice to or assent by the Grantor, to do any of the following when an Event of Default shall be continuing:
in the name of the Grantor, in its own name or otherwise, take possession of and indorse and collect any check, draft, note, acceptance, or other instrument for the payment of moneys due under any account or general intangible or with respect to any other Collateral and file any claim or take any other action or proceeding in any court of law or equity or otherwise deemed appropriate by the Lender for the purpose of collecting any such moneys due under any account or general intangible or with respect to any other Collateral whenever payable;
in the case of any Intellectual Property owned by or licensed to the Grantor, execute, deliver, and have recorded any document that the Lender may reasonably request to evidence, effect, publicize or record the Lender’s security interest in such Intellectual Property and the goodwill and general intangibles of the Grantor relating thereto or represented thereby;
pay or discharge taxes and Liens levied or placed on or threatened against any Collateral, effect any repair, or pay any insurance called for by the terms of the Loan Agreement (including all or any part of the premiums therefor and the costs thereof);

execute, in connection with any sale provided for in Section 7, any document to effect or otherwise necessary or appropriate in relation to evidence the sale of any Collateral; or
(A) direct any party liable for any payment under any Collateral to make payment of any moneys due or to become due thereunder directly to the Lender or as the Lender shall direct; (B) ask or demand for, and collect and receive payment of and receipt for, any moneys, claims and other amounts due or to become due at any time in respect of or arising out of any Collateral; (C) sign and indorse any invoice, freight or express bill, bill of lading, storage or warehouse receipt, draft against debtors, assignment, verification, notice and other document in connection with any Collateral; (D) commence and prosecute any suit, action, or proceeding at law or in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction to collect any Collateral and to enforce any other right in respect of any Collateral; (E) defend any actions, suits, proceedings, audits, claims, demands, orders, or disputes brought against the Grantor with respect to any Collateral; (F) settle, compromise or adjust any such actions, suits, proceedings, audits, claims, demands, orders, or disputes and, in connection therewith, give such discharges or releases as the Lender may deem appropriate; (G) assign any Intellectual Property owned by the Grantor or any Intellectual Property licenses of the Grantor throughout the world on such terms and conditions and in such manner as the Lender shall in its sole discretion determine, including the execution and filing of any document necessary to effectuate or record such assignment; and (H) generally, sell, assign, convey, transfer, or grant a Lien on, make any Contractual Obligation with respect to and otherwise deal with, any Collateral as fully and completely as though the Lender were the absolute owner thereof for all purposes and do, at the Lender’s option, at any time or from time to time, all acts and things that the Lender deems necessary to protect, preserve or realize upon any Collateral and the Lender’s security interests therein and to effect the intent of the Loan Documents, all as fully and effectively as the Grantor might do.
If any Grantor fails to perform or comply with any Contractual Obligation contained herein, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Lender, at its option, but without any obligation so to do, may perform or comply, or otherwise cause performance or compliance, with such Contractual Obligation.
The expenses of the Lender incurred in connection with actions undertaken as provided in this Section 6, together with interest thereon at a rate set forth in the Loan Agreement, from the date of payment by the Lender to the date reimbursed by the Grantor, shall be payable by the Grantor to the Lender on demand.
The Grantor hereby ratifies all that said attorneys shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue of this Section 6. All powers, authorizations, and agencies contained in this Agreement are coupled with an interest and are irrevocable until this Security Agreement is terminated and the security interests created hereby are released.
- 16 -
Remedies; Rights Upon Default.
In addition to all other rights and remedies granted to it under this Security Agreement, the Loan Agreement, the other Loan Documents and under any other instrument or agreement securing, evidencing, or relating to any of the Obligations (but subject to the terms of such instruments or agreements), if any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Lender may exercise all rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Grantor expressly agrees that in any such event the Lender, without demand of performance or other demand, advertisement, or notice of any kind (except the notice specified below of time and place of public or private sale) to or upon the Grantor or any other Person (all and each of which demands, advertisements, and notices are hereby expressly waived to the maximum extent permitted by the UCC and other applicable law), may forthwith enter upon the premises of the Grantor where any Collateral is located through self-help (provided there is no breach of the peace), without judicial process, without first obtaining a final judgment or giving the Grantor or any other Person notice and opportunity for a hearing on the Lender’s claim or action and may collect, receive, assemble, process, appropriate, and realize upon the Collateral, or any part thereof, and may forthwith sell, lease, license, assign, give an option or options to purchase, or otherwise dispose of and deliver said Collateral (or contract to do so), or any part thereof, in one or more parcels at a public or private sale or sales, at any exchange at such prices as it may deem commercially reasonable, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk. The Lender shall have the right upon any such public sale or sales and, to the extent permitted by law, upon any such private sale or sales, to purchase for the benefit of the Lender, the whole or any part of said Collateral so sold, free of any right or equity of redemption, which equity of redemption the Grantor hereby releases (it being understood that such purchase shall terminate the obligations of the Guarantor pursuant to Section 2.7 of the Loan Agreement). Such sales may be adjourned and continued from time to time with or without notice. The Lender shall have the right to conduct such sales on the Grantor’s premises or elsewhere and shall have the right to use the Grantor’s premises without charge for such time or times as the Lender deems necessary or advisable.
If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Grantor further agrees, at the Lender’s request, to assemble the Collateral and make it available to the Lender at a place or places designated by the Lender which are reasonably convenient to the Lender and the Grantor, whether at the Grantor’s premises or elsewhere. Until the Lender is able to effect a sale, lease, or other disposition of Collateral, the Lender shall have the right to hold or use Collateral, or any part thereof, to the extent that it deems appropriate for the purpose of preserving Collateral or its value or for any other purpose deemed appropriate by the Lender. The Lender shall not have any obligation to the Grantor to maintain or preserve the rights of the Grantor as against third parties with respect to any Collateral while such Collateral is in the possession of the Lender. The Lender may, if it so elects, seek the appointment of a receiver or keeper to take possession of Collateral and to enforce any of the Lender’s remedies (for the benefit of the Lender and Lenders), with respect to such appointment without prior notice or hearing as to such appointment. The Lender shall apply the net proceeds of any such collection, recovery, receipt, appropriation, realization, or sale to the Obligations as provided in the Loan Agreement, and only after so paying over such net proceeds, and after the payment by the Lender of any other amount required by any provision of law, need the Lender account for the surplus, if any, to the Grantor. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Grantor waives all claims, damages, and demands against the Lender arising out of the repossession, retention, or sale of the Collateral except to the extent that such arise out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Lender as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. The Grantor agrees that 10 days prior notice by the Lender of the time and place of any public sale or of the time after which a private sale may take place is reasonable notification of such matters. The Grantor shall remain liable for any deficiency if the proceeds of any sale or disposition of the Collateral are insufficient to pay all Obligations, including any attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by the Lender to collect such deficiency.
- 17 -
Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, the Grantor hereby waives presentment, demand, protest, or any notice (to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law) of any kind in connection with this Security Agreement or any Collateral.
To the extent that applicable law imposes duties on the Lender to exercise remedies in a best manner, the Grantor acknowledges and agrees that it is not commercially unreasonable for the Lender (i) to fail to incur expenses reasonably deemed significant by the Lender to prepare Collateral for disposition or otherwise to complete raw material or work in process into finished goods or other finished products for disposition; (ii) to fail to obtain third party consents for access to Collateral to be disposed of, or to obtain or, if not required by other law, to fail to obtain governmental or third party consents for the collection or disposition of Collateral to be collected or disposed of; (iii) to fail to exercise collection remedies against Account Debtors or other Persons obligated on Collateral or to remove Liens on or any adverse claims against Collateral; (iv) to exercise collection remedies against Account Debtors and other Persons obligated on Collateral directly or through the use of collection agencies and other collection specialists; (v) to advertise dispositions of Collateral through publications or media of general circulation, whether or not the Collateral is of a specialized nature; (vi) to contact other Persons, whether or not in the same business as the Grantor, for expressions of interest in acquiring all or any portion of such Collateral; (vii) to hire one or more professional auctioneers to assist in the disposition of Collateral, whether or not the Collateral is of a specialized nature; (viii) to dispose of Collateral by utilizing internet sites that provide for the auction of assets of the types included in the Collateral or that have the reasonable capacity of doing so, or that match buyers and sellers of assets; (ix) to dispose of assets in wholesale rather than retail markets; (x) to disclaim disposition warranties, such as title, possession or quiet enjoyment; (xi) to purchase insurance or credit enhancements to insure the Lender against risks of loss, collection or disposition of Collateral or to provide to the Lender a guaranteed return from the collection or disposition of Collateral; or (xii) to the extent deemed appropriate by the Lender, to obtain the services of other brokers, investment bankers, consultants, and other professionals to assist the Lender in the collection or disposition of any of the Collateral. The Grantor acknowledges that the purpose of this Section 7(c) is to provide non-exhaustive indications of what actions or omissions by the Lender would not be commercially unreasonable in the Lender’s exercise of remedies against the Collateral and that other actions or omissions by the Lender shall not be deemed commercially unreasonable solely on account of not being indicated in this Section 7(c). Without limitation upon the foregoing, nothing contained in this Section 7(c) shall be construed to grant any rights to the Grantor or to impose any duties on the Lender that would not have been granted or imposed by this Security Agreement or by applicable law in the absence of this Section 7(c).
- 18 -
The Lender shall not be required to make any demand upon, or pursue or exhaust any of their rights or remedies against, any Grantor, any other obligor, guarantor, pledgor, or any other Person with respect to the payment of the Obligations or to pursue or exhaust any of their rights or remedies with respect to any Collateral therefor or any direct or indirect guarantee thereof. The Lender shall not be required to marshal the Collateral or any guarantee of the Obligations or to resort to the Collateral or any such guarantee in any particular order, and all of its and their rights hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be cumulative. To the extent it may lawfully do so, the Grantor absolutely and irrevocably waives and relinquishes the benefit and advantage of, and covenants not to assert against the Lender, any valuation, stay, appraisement, extension, redemption, or similar laws and any and all rights or defenses it may have as a surety now or hereafter existing which, but for this provision, might be applicable to the sale of any Collateral made under the judgment, order, or decree of any court, or privately under the power of sale conferred by this Security Agreement, or otherwise.
Grant of License to Use Intellectual Property. For the purpose of enabling the Lender to exercise its rights and remedies under Section 7 hereof (including, without limiting the terms of Section 7 hereof, in order to take possession of, hold, preserve, process, assemble, prepare for sale, market for sale, sell, monitor, collect or otherwise dispose of Collateral), the Grantor hereby assigns, transfers and conveys to the Lender, for the benefit of the Lender and Lenders, effective upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, the non-exclusive right and license to use all Intellectual Property owned or used by the Grantor together with any goodwill associated therewith, in any case to the extent that it is not prohibited from doing so under applicable law. This right and license shall inure to the benefit of all successors, assigns and transferees of the Lender and its successors, assigns and transferees, whether by voluntary conveyance, operation of law, assignment, transfer, foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure or otherwise. Such right and license is granted free of charge and does not require the consent of any other person.
Limitation on the Lender’s and Lenders’ Duty in Respect of Collateral. The Lender shall use reasonable care with respect to the Collateral in its possession or under its control. The Lender shall not have any other duty as to any Collateral in its possession or control or in the possession or control of any agent or nominee of the Lender, or any income thereon or as to the preservation of rights against prior parties or any other rights pertaining thereto. The Lender shall not be liable or responsible for any loss or damage to any of the Collateral, or for any diminution in the value thereof, by reason of the act or omission of any warehouse, carrier, forwarding agency, consignee, broker or other agent or bailee selected by any Grantor or selected by the Lender in good faith.
- 19 -
Reinstatement. This Security Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and continue to be effective should any petition be filed by or against the Grantor for liquidation or reorganization, should the Grantor become insolvent or make an assignment for the benefit of any creditor or creditors or should a receiver or trustee be appointed for all or any significant part of the Grantor’s assets, and shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if and to the extent at any time payment and performance of the Obligations, or any part thereof, is, pursuant to applicable law, rescinded or reduced in amount, or must otherwise be restored or returned by any obligee of the Obligations, whether as a “voidable preference”, “fraudulent conveyance”, or otherwise, all as though such payment or performance had not been made. In the event that any payment, or any part thereof, is rescinded, reduced, restored, or returned, the Obligations shall be reinstated and deemed reduced only by such amount paid and not so rescinded, reduced, restored, or returned.
Notices. Except as otherwise provided herein, whenever it is provided herein that any notice, demand, request, consent, approval, declaration, or other communication shall or may be given to or served upon any of the parties by any other party, or whenever any of the parties desires to give and serve upon any other party any communication with respect to this Security Agreement, each such notice, demand, request, consent, approval, declaration, or other communication shall be in writing and shall be given in the manner, and deemed received, as provided for in the Loan Agreement.
Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this Security Agreement shall be interpreted in a manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Security Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Security Agreement. This Security Agreement is to be read, construed and applied together with the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents which, taken together, set forth the complete understanding and agreement of the Lender and the Grantor with respect to the matters referred to herein and therein.
No Waiver; Cumulative Remedies. No failure on the part of the Lender to exercise, and no delay in exercising and no course of dealing with respect to, any right under this Security Agreement shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise by the Lender of any right under this Security Agreement preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right. The rights in this Security Agreement and the other Loan Documents are cumulative and shall in no way limit any other remedies provided by law.
Limitation by Law. All rights, remedies and powers provided in this Security Agreement may be exercised only to the extent that the exercise thereof does not violate any applicable provision of law, and all the provisions of this Security Agreement are intended to be subject to all applicable mandatory provisions of law that may be controlling and to be limited to the extent necessary so that they shall not render this Security Agreement invalid, unenforceable, in whole or in part, or not entitled to be recorded, registered, or filed under the provisions of any applicable law.
Termination of This Security Agreement. Subject to Section 10 hereof, this Security Agreement shall terminate upon Payment in Full of the Obligations. Upon such Payment in Full of the Obligations, any Collateral then in custody of the Lender or its nominee shall be re-delivered to Borrower Representative as soon as practicable.
