A. Borrower and Lender are parties to that certain Credit and Security Agreement dated as of December 29, 2017, as amended by that certain First Amendment and Waiver to Credit and Security Agreement dated as of March 7, 2019, as further amended by that certain Second Amendment and Consent to Credit and Security Agreement dated as of August 6, 2019 and by that certain Third Amendment and Waiver to Credit and Security Agreement dated as of August 19, 2019 (the "Credit Agreement").
B. Obligors have requested that Lender agree to (i) amend certain provisions of the Credit Agreement and (ii) waive certain Events of Default that have occurred as a result of Borrower’s failure to satisfy certain requirements of Section 4.3 and paragraph 1 of Schedule B-3 of the Credit Agreement, namely by virtue of failing to maintain a Debt Service Coverage Ratio of not less than 1.10 to 1.0 for the fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2019 for the trailing 3 month period then ended (the “Specified Event of Default”).
C. Lender has agreed to so amend certain provisions of the Credit Agreement and to waive the Specified Event of Default on the terms and conditions set forth below.

All of the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement remain in full force and effect and none of such terms and conditions are, or shall be construed as, otherwise amended or modified, except as specifically set forth herein, and nothing in this Amendment shall constitute a waiver by Lender of any Default or Event of Default, or of any right, power or remedy available to Lender under the Credit Agreement or any other Loan Document, whether any such defaults, rights, powers or remedies presently exist or arise in the future, except as specifically set forth herein.
