d) Governing Law.

If it shall be found that any interest or other amount deemed interest due hereunder violates the applicable law governing usury, the applicable rate of interest due hereunder shall automatically be lowered to equal the maximum rate of interest permitted under applicable law. The Borrowers covenant (to the extent that they may lawfully do so) that they shall not at any time insist upon, plead, or in any manner whatsoever claim or take the benefit or advantage of, any stay, extension or usury law or other law which would prohibit or forgive the Borrowers from paying all or any portion of the principal of or interest on this Note as contemplated herein, wherever enacted, now or at any time hereafter in force, or which may affect the covenants or the performance of this Note, and the Borrowers (to the extent it may lawfully do so) hereby expressly waive all benefits or advantage of any such law, and covenants that it will not, by resort to any such law, hinder, delay or impede the execution of any power herein granted to the Holder, but will suffer and permit the execution of every such as though no such law has been enacted.

Each Borrower acknowledges that a breach by it of its obligations hereunder will cause irreparable harm to the Holder and that the remedy at law for any such breach may be inadequate. Each Borrower shall provide all information and documentation to the Holder that is reasonably requested by the Holder to enable the Holder to confirm each Borrower’s compliance with the terms and conditions of this Note.
h) Next Business Day. Whenever any payment or other obligation hereunder shall be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day.
i) Headings. The headings contained herein are for convenience only, do not constitute a part of this Note and shall not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions hereof.

i. Borrowers are jointly and severally liable for all of the indebtedness, obligations, and liabilities of the Borrowers now or hereafter existing under this Note and the Transaction Documents, whether for principal, interest, fees, expenses, indemnification or otherwise (the “Obligations”) and the Holder may proceed against one Borrower to enforce the Obligations without waiving its right to proceed against the other Borrower. This Note and the Transaction Documents are a primary and original obligation of each Borrower and shall remain in effect notwithstanding future changes in conditions, including any change of law or any invalidity or irregularity in the creation or acquisition of any Obligations or in the execution or delivery of any agreement between the Holder and any Borrower. Each Borrower shall be liable for existing and future Obligations as fully as if all of the principal amount of this Note were advanced to such Borrower. The Holder may rely on any certificate or representation made by any Borrower as made on behalf of, and binding on, all Borrowers. Each Borrower appoints each other Borrower as its agent with all necessary power and authority to give and receive notices, certificates or demands for and on behalf of all Borrowers. This authorization cannot be revoked, and the Holder need not inquire as to one Borrower’s authority to act for or on behalf of another Borrower.
ii. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Note or any other Transaction Document, each Borrower irrevocably waives, until all Obligations are paid in full, all rights that it may have at law or in equity (including, without limitation, any law subrogating a Borrower to the rights of the Holder under this Note or any other Transaction Documents) to seek contribution, indemnification, or any other form of reimbursement from any other Borrower, or any other Person now or hereafter primarily or secondarily liable for any of the Obligations, for any payment made by a Borrower with respect to the Obligations in connection with the Transaction Documents or otherwise and all rights that it might have to benefit from, or to participate in, any security for the Obligations as a result of any payment made by a Borrower with respect to the Obligations in connection with the Transaction Documents or otherwise. Any agreement providing for indemnification, reimbursement or any other arrangement prohibited under this Section shall be null and void. If any payment is made to a Borrower in contravention of this Section, such Borrower shall hold such payment in trust for the Holder and such payment shall be promptly delivered to the Holder for application to the Obligations, whether matured or unmatured.
iii. Each Borrower waives, to the extent permitted by law, notice of acceptance hereof; notice of the existence, creation or acquisition of any of the Obligations; notice of an Event of Default except as set forth herein; notice of the amount of the Obligations outstanding at any time; notice of any adverse change in the financial condition of any other Borrower or of any other fact that might increase a Borrower’s risk; presentment for payment; demand; protest and notice thereof as to any instrument; and all other notices and demands to which Borrower would otherwise be entitled by virtue of being a co-borrower or a surety. Each Borrower waives any defense arising from any defense of any other Borrower, or by reason of the cessation from any cause whatsoever of the liability of any other Borrower. The Holder’s failure at any time to require strict performance by any Borrower of any provision of this Note or the other Transaction Documents shall not waive, alter or diminish any right of the Holder thereafter to demand strict compliance and performance therewith. Each Borrower also waives any defense arising from any act or omission of the Holder that changes the scope of such Borrower’s risks hereunder. Each Borrower hereby waives any right to assert against the Holder any defense (legal or equitable), setoff, counterclaim, or claims that such Borrower individually may now or hereafter have against another Borrower or any other Person liable to the Holder with respect to the Obligations in any manner or whatsoever.
iv. The liability of the Borrowers hereunder shall not be diminished by (i) any agreement, understanding or representation that any of the Obligations is or was to be guaranteed by another Person or secured by property, or (ii) any release or unenforceability, whether partial or total, of rights, if any, which the Holder may now or hereafter have against any other Person, including another Borrower, or property with respect to any of the Obligations. Without notice to any given Borrower and without affecting the liability of any given Borrower hereunder, the Holder may (i) compromise, settle, renew, extend the time for payment, change the manner or terms of payment, discharge the performance of, decline to enforce, or release all or any of the Obligations with respect to any other Borrower by written agreement with such other Borrower, (ii) grant other indulgences to another Borrower in respect of the Obligations, (iii) modify in any manner any documents relating to the Obligations with respect to any other Borrower by written agreement with such other Borrower, (iv) release, surrender or exchange any deposits or other property securing the Obligations, whether pledged by a Borrower or any other Person, or (v) compromise, settle, renew, or extend the time for payment, discharge the performance of, decline to enforce, or release all or any obligations of any guarantor, endorser or other Person who is now or may hereafter be liable with respect to any of the Obligations.
v. Post Judgment Interest. If Holder obtains a money judgment against Borrowers on this Note, Borrowers agree that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, the judgment shall bear interest at the rate of fifteen percent (15%) per annum until the judgment, including, without limitation, the principal of this Note, is paid in full and satisfied. Borrowers acknowledge that this judgment interest rate may be higher than the statutory judgment rate contained in NYS CPLR Section 5004.
