B.Bank is willing to make such term loan to Borrower upon the terms and provisions and subject to the conditions set forth herein.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual agreements contained herein, and of any loan made to or for the benefit of Borrower by Bank, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt, sufficiency and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto (intending to be legally bound) hereby agree as follows:
1ACCOUNTING AND OTHER TERMS
Accounting terms not defined in this Agreement shall be construed in accordance with GAAP. Calculations and determinations made in connection with this Agreement shall be made following GAAP applied on a consistent basis. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Agreement shall have the meanings set forth in Section 13. All other terms contained in this Agreement, unless otherwise indicated, shall have the meaning provided by the Code to the extent such terms are defined therein.
2LOAN AND TERMS OF PAYMENT
2.1Promise to Pay. Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay Bank the outstanding principal amount of all Credit Extensions and accrued and unpaid interest thereon as and when due in accordance with this Agreement.
(a)Term Loan. On the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement, Bank agrees to extend to Borrower in one advance a single term loan on the Effective Date, in an aggregate principal amount equal to One Million and No/100 Dollars ($1,000,000.00) (the “Term Loan”). Any amount of the Term Loan borrowed and repaid or prepaid under this Agreement may not be reborrowed.
(b)Borrowing. On the Effective Date, Bank shall make the proceeds of the Term Loan available to Borrower by wire transfer of such proceeds, in accordance with instructions provided to (and acceptable to) Bank by Borrower.
(c)Term Loan Note. The Term Loan shall be evidenced by a promissory note (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, and together with any renewals or extensions thereof or exchanges or substitutions therefor, the “Term Loan Note”), duly executed and delivered by Borrower, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Bank, with appropriate insertions, dated the Effective Date, payable by Borrower to the order of Bank in the principal amount equal to the Term Loan.
(d)Repayment. On each Payment Date beginning with December 1, 2018 and ending on the Term Loan Maturity Date, Borrower shall make a scheduled payment of all interest accrued hereunder on the Term Loan since the immediately preceding Payment Date (or, in the case of the first interest payment being made by Borrower hereunder on December 1, 2018, since the Effective Date). On each Payment Date beginning with June 1, 2018 and ending on the Term Loan Maturity Date, Borrower shall make a scheduled principal payment on the Term Loan in the amount of Thirty Three Thousand Three Hundred Thirty Three and 33/100 Dollars ($33,333.33) plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, as such amounts may be adjusted to give effect to any prepayment of the Term
Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Any remaining unpaid balance (including any and all principal and interest accrued thereon) of the Term Loan shall be payable in cash on the Term Loan Maturity Date.
(e)Voluntary Prepayment. Borrower may at any time and from time to time prepay the outstanding principal amounts outstanding under the Term Loan (in whole or in part); provided that any such prepayment shall be accompanied by the payment of all accrued and unpaid interest on such amount so prepaid. Such prepayment of principal shall be applied to the scheduled payments of the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan at such time in the inverse order of maturity.
2.2Acceleration. Unless sooner paid in full in accordance with Section 2.1.1(d) hereof, the then outstanding balance of the Term Loan (together with all accrued interest thereon) shall become immediately due and payable upon the earliest to occur of the (x) Term Loan Maturity Date; (y) acceleration of the Obligations pursuant to Section 9.1 hereof; and (z) termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms.
2.3Interest; Default Rate; Loan Account.
(a)Interest Rate. Subject to Section 2.3(b), the principal amount outstanding of the Term Loan shall accrue interest at a floating per annum rate equal to the Applicable Rate, which interest shall be payable monthly in accordance with Section 2.1.(d) above and Section 2.3(f) below.
(b)Default Rate. Immediately upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Obligations shall bear interest at a rate per annum which is three percent (3.00%) above the Applicable Rate (the “Default Rate”), which Default Rate may be deemed to commence as of the date of the occurrence of any Event of Default at Bank’s sole discretion, unless Bank otherwise elects from time to time in its sole discretion to impose a lesser increase. Fees and expenses which are required to be paid by Borrower pursuant to the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, Bank Expenses) but are not paid when due shall bear interest until paid at a rate equal to the highest rate at any time applicable to the Obligations. Payment or acceptance of the increased interest rate provided in this Section 2.3(b) is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of Bank.
(c)Adjustment to Interest Rate. Changes to the interest rate of any Credit Extension based on changes to the Prime Rate shall be effective on the effective date of any change to the Prime Rate and to the extent of any such change. Each determination by Bank of an interest rate shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error.
(d)Computation; 360-Day Year. In computing interest, the date of the making of any Credit Extension shall be included and the date of payment shall be excluded; provided, however, that if any Credit Extension is repaid on the same day on which it is made, such day shall be included in computing interest on such Credit Extension. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed.
(e)Debit of Accounts. Bank may debit any of Borrower’s Deposit Accounts maintained with Bank (other than Deposit Accounts exclusively used for payroll, payroll taxes and other employee wage and benefit payments to or for the benefit of Borrower’s employees) for principal and interest payments or any other amounts Borrower owes Bank when due or declared due in accordance with the terms hereof. These debits shall not constitute a set-off.
(f)Interest Payment Date. Unless otherwise provided herein, interest is payable monthly in arrears on the Payment Date.
(g)Borrower’s Loan Account. Bank shall maintain a loan account (the “Loan Account”) on its books for Borrower in which shall be recorded (i) the Term Loan made on the Effective Date by Bank to Borrower pursuant to this Agreement, (ii) all payments made by Borrower on the Term Loan, and (iii) all other appropriate debits and credits as provided in this Agreement, including, without limitation, all fees, charges, expenses and interest. All entries in the Loan Account shall be made in accordance with Bank’s customary accounting practices as in effect from time to time. Borrower promises to pay the amount reflected as owing by Borrower under its Loan Account (absent manifest error) and all of its other obligations hereunder as such amounts become due or are declared due pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the failure so to record any such amount or any error in so recording any such amount shall not limit or otherwise affect
Borrower’s obligations under this Agreement or under the Term Loan Note to repay the outstanding principal amount further evidenced thereby together with all interest accruing thereon.
(h)Statements. The Term Loan, and all other debits and credits provided for in this Agreement, shall be evidenced by Borrower’s Loan Account. Until such time as Bank shall have rendered to Borrower written statements of account as provided herein, the balance in the Loan Account, as set forth on Bank’s most recent computer printout, shall be rebuttably presumptive evidence of the amounts due and owing Bank by Borrower. From time to time Bank shall render to Borrower a statement setting forth the balance of the Loan Account, including principal, interest, expenses and fees. Each such statement shall be subject to subsequent adjustment by Bank but shall, absent manifest errors or omissions, be presumed correct and binding upon Borrower.
2.4Fees. Borrower shall pay to Bank:
(b)[Intentionally Omitted]; and
(c)Bank Expenses. All Bank Expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses for documentation, negotiation and revision of, or amendments to, this Agreement (and the other Loan Documents) and the closing of the transaction contemplated hereby) incurred through and after the Effective Date, when due.
2.5Yield Protection. If, after the date of this Agreement, any Change in Law: (a) subjects Bank to any tax, duty, charge or withholding on or from payments due from Borrower (excluding franchise taxes and taxation of the net income or receipts of Bank), or changes the basis of taxation (excluding with respect to franchise taxes and taxation of the net income or receipts of Bank) of payments to Bank in respect of its Credit Extensions or other amounts due it hereunder; or (b) imposes, modifies, or increases or deems applicable any reserve, assessment, insurance charge, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, Bank; or (c) imposes any other condition the result of which is to increase the cost to Bank of making, funding or maintaining advances or reduces any amount receivable by Bank in connection with advances, or requires Bank to make any payment calculated by reference to the amount of advances held or interest received by it, by an amount deemed material by Bank; or (d) affects the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by Bank or any corporation controlling Bank and Bank determines the amount of capital required is increased by or based upon the existence of this Agreement or its obligation to make Credit Extensions hereunder, then, within five (5) Business Days of receipt of written demand as provided below in this Section, Borrower agrees to pay Bank that portion of such increased expense incurred (including any reduction in the rate of return on capital to an amount below that which it could have achieved but for such law, rule, regulation, policy, guideline or directive and after taking into account Bank’s policies as to capital adequacy) or reduction in an amount received which Bank reasonably determines is attributable to making, funding and maintaining any Credit Extension. Bank shall deliver a written statement to Borrower as to the amount due, if any, under this Section that shall set forth in reasonable detail the calculations upon which Bank determined such amount and shall be final, conclusive and binding on Borrower in the absence of demonstrable error.
2.6Payments. All payments (including prepayments) to be made by Borrower under any Loan Document shall be made in immediately available funds in United States Dollars, without setoff or counterclaim, before 3:00 p.m. Central time on the date when due at Bank’s office at 231 South LaSalle Street, 3rd Floor, Chicago, Illinois 60603, or at such other place as Bank directs in writing from time to time, or, in Bank’s sole and absolute discretion, by appropriate debits to any Deposit Account of Borrower (other than Deposit Accounts exclusively used for payroll, payroll taxes and other employee wage and benefit payments to or for the benefit of Borrower’s employees) maintained with Bank. Payments of principal and/or interest received after 3:00 p.m. Central time are considered received at the opening of business on the next Business Day. When a payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment shall be due the next Business Day, and additional fees or interest, as applicable, shall continue to accrue until paid. Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes and instructs Bank to direct debit any of Borrower’s operating accounts or other Deposit Accounts (other than Deposit Accounts exclusively used for payroll, payroll taxes and other employee wage and benefit payments to or for the benefit of Borrower’s employees) with Bank for all principal, interest and other amounts owing under this Agreement without any advance notice required to be furnished to Borrower by Bank (and any other amounts that are permitted to be set off by Bank in accordance with the terms hereof), due hereunder with respect to the Term Loan and the other Obligations. Bank will reflect any such debits in the monthly statements furnished to Borrower in the ordinary course. All payments by Borrower under this Agreement shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction for, any present or future income,
excise, stamp or other taxes, fees, levies, duties, withholdings or other charges of any nature whatsoever, now or hereafter imposed by any taxing authority.
2.7Limitation on Charges. It being the intent of the parties that the rate of interest and all other charges to Borrower be lawful, if for any reason the payment of a portion of the interest or other charges otherwise required to be paid under this Agreement would exceed the limit which Bank may lawfully charge Borrower, then the obligation to pay interest or other charges shall automatically be reduced to such limit and, if any amounts in excess of such limit shall have been paid, then such amounts shall at the sole option of Bank either be credited to the principal amount of the Obligations or refunded to Borrower (or any combination of the foregoing) so that under no circumstances shall the interest or other charges required to be paid by Borrower hereunder exceed the maximum rate allowed by applicable law, and Borrower shall not have any action against Bank for any damages arising out of the payment or collection of any such excess interest.
2.8Mandatory Prepayments. Upon receipt by Borrower of the proceeds of any asset sale or disposition outside its normal course of business, Borrower shall make a prepayment of the then outstanding principal amount of the Term Loan in an amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the Net Cash Proceeds of such asset sale or disposition. Notwithstanding the foregoing and provided no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, such prepayment shall not be required to the extent Borrower reinvests the Net Cash Proceeds of such disposition, or a material portion thereof, in assets of a kind then used or usable in the business of Borrower and in which Bank has a first priority perfected Lien, within thirty (30) days after the date of such disposition or enters into a binding commitment thereof within such period and subsequently makes such reinvestment within ninety (90) days of Borrower entering into such binding commitment, provided until such date of reinvestment, either a fully executed Control Agreement shall be delivered to Bank with respect to such Net Cash Proceeds or such Net Cash Proceeds shall be deposited into a Deposit Account over which Bank has a first priority perfected Lien.

4CREATION OF SECURITY INTEREST
4.1Grant of Security Interest. Borrower hereby grants Bank, to secure the payment and performance in full of all of the Obligations when due or declared due pursuant hereto, a continuing security interest in, and pledges and collaterally assigns to Bank, the Collateral, wherever located, whether now owned or hereafter acquired or arising, and all proceeds and products thereof.
Borrower acknowledges that it previously has entered, and/or may in the future enter, into one or more Treasury Management Agreements with Bank. Regardless of the terms of any Treasury Management Agreement, Borrower agrees that any amounts Borrower owes Bank thereunder shall be deemed to be Obligations hereunder and that it is the intent of Borrower and Bank to have all such Obligations secured by the first priority perfected security interest in the Collateral granted herein (subject only to Permitted Liens).
Bank’s Lien in the Collateral shall continue until (i) the Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity or reimbursement obligations or other obligations which, by their terms, survive termination of this Agreement) are
paid and satisfied in cash in full, and (ii) the Bank’s commitment to extend any Credit Extensions as provided hereunder is terminated. Upon such termination and from time to time reasonably thereafter, Bank will, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, execute and deliver such documents as reasonably requested by Borrower solely to evidence the termination and release of its security interest in the Collateral. In the event (a) all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity or reimbursement obligations or other obligations which, by their terms, survive termination of this Agreement), except for Treasury Management Services, are satisfied in cash in full, and (b) this Agreement is terminated (other than provisions herein that survive any such termination), Bank shall terminate the security interest granted herein upon Borrower providing cash collateral acceptable to Bank in its good faith business judgment for Treasury Management Services, if any.
4.2Preservation of Collateral and Perfection of Security Interests Therein. Borrower agrees that it shall execute and deliver to Bank, concurrently with the execution of this Agreement, and at any time or times hereafter at the reasonable request of Bank instruments and documents as Bank may reasonably request, in a form reasonably satisfactory to Bank, to perfect and keep perfected the Bank’s Lien in the Collateral or to otherwise protect and preserve the Collateral and Bank’s Liens therein (including, without limitation, if and as applicable, financing statements, and Borrower shall pay the cost of filing or recording the same in all public offices deemed necessary by Bank). Bank is authorized to file such financing statements as Bank reasonably deems necessary. Borrower shall make appropriate entries upon its financial statements disclosing Bank’s first position priority Lien in the Collateral (subject only to Permitted Liens).
4.3Priority of Security Interest. Borrower represents, warrants, and covenants that the security interest granted herein to Bank is and shall at all times continue to be a first priority perfected security interest in the Collateral (subject only to Permitted Liens that expressly have superior priority to Bank’s Lien under this Agreement, if any). If Borrower shall acquire a Commercial Tort Claim (as defined in the Code), Borrower shall promptly notify Bank in a writing signed by Borrower of the general details thereof and grant to Bank in such writing a security interest therein and in the proceeds thereof, all upon the terms of this Agreement, with such writing to be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Bank.
4.4Authorization to File Financing Statements. Borrower hereby authorizes Bank to file UCC financing statements (and UCC amendment and continuation statements), without notice to Borrower, with all appropriate jurisdictions to perfect or protect Bank’s interest or rights hereunder, including a notice that any disposition of the Collateral, by either Borrower or any other Person, shall be deemed to violate the rights of Bank under the Code. Such financing statements shall describe the Collateral as is set forth on Exhibit A attached hereto.
5REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
Borrower represents and warrants to Bank until payment in full in cash of all outstanding Obligations and this Agreement no longer remains in effect, as follows:
5.1Due Organization, Authorization; Power and Authority; Enforceability. (a) Borrower is a corporation in good standing and duly existing under the laws of the State of Nevada and is qualified and licensed to do business and is in good standing in any other jurisdiction in which the conduct of its business or ownership of property requires that they be qualified except where the failure to do so would not reasonably be expected to have or cause a Material Adverse Effect. In connection with this Agreement, Borrower has delivered to Bank a completed certificate signed by Borrower, entitled “Perfection Certificate” (the “Perfection Certificate”). Borrower’s exact legal name is that indicated on the Perfection Certificate and on the signature page hereof. Borrower is an organization of the type and is organized in the jurisdiction set forth in the Perfection Certificate. The Perfection Certificate accurately sets forth Borrower’s organizational identification number or accurately states that Borrower has none. The Perfection Certificate accurately sets forth Borrower’s place of business, or, if more than one, its chief executive office as well as Borrower’s mailing address (if different than its chief executive office). Except as set forth in the Perfection Certificate, Borrower (and each of its predecessors) has not, in the past five (5) years, changed its jurisdiction of formation, organizational structure or type, or any organizational number assigned by its jurisdiction. All other information set forth on the Perfection Certificate pertaining to Borrower and each of its Subsidiaries is accurate and complete (it being understood and agreed that Borrower may from time to time update certain information in the Perfection Certificate after the Effective Date in writing to the extent permitted by one or more specific provisions in this Agreement). If Borrower is not now a Registered Organization but later becomes one, Borrower shall promptly notify Bank of such occurrence and provide Bank with Borrower’s organizational identification number. As of the Effective Date, Borrower has no Subsidiaries. On the Effective Date, the capitalization of Borrower is as set forth on Schedule 5.1 attached hereto.
(b) The execution, delivery and performance by Borrower of the Loan Documents to which it is a party have been duly authorized and are within Borrower’s corporate powers, and do not (i) conflict with any of Borrower’s Operating Documents, (ii) contravene, conflict with, constitute a default under or violate any material Requirement of Law, (iii) contravene, conflict or violate any applicable order, writ, judgment, injunction, decree, determination or award of any Governmental Authority by which Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries or any of their property or assets may be bound or affected which would reasonably be expected to result in material liability to Borrower, (iv) require any action by, filing, registration, or qualification with, or Governmental Approval from, any Governmental Authority (except such Governmental Approvals which have already been obtained and are in full force and effect), or (v) constitute an event of default under any material agreement by which Borrower is bound. Borrower is not in default under any agreement to which it is a party or by which it is bound in which the default would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
(c) This Agreement and all of the other Loan Documents to which Borrower is a party are the legal, valid and binding obligations of Borrower and are enforceable against Borrower in accordance with their respective terms, subject to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting the enforcement of creditor’s rights and remedies generally.
5.2Collateral. (a) Borrower has good title to, has rights in, and the power to transfer each item of the Collateral upon which it purports to grant a Lien hereunder, free and clear of any and all Liens except Permitted Liens. Borrower has no Deposit Accounts other than the Deposit Accounts maintained with Bank or the Deposit Accounts described in the Perfection Certificate delivered to Bank in connection herewith. The Accounts are bona fide, existing obligations of the Account Debtors. The Collateral is not in the possession of any third party bailee (such as a warehouse) except as otherwise provided in the Perfection Certificate or subject to a landlord agreement or bailee agreement as required pursuant to Section 6.14 or Section 7.2, as applicable. None of the components of the Collateral shall be maintained at locations other than as provided in the Perfection Certificate or as permitted pursuant to Section 7.2. All Inventory is of good and marketable quality, free from defects, in all material respects.
(b) Borrower is the sole owner of the Intellectual Property which it owns or purports to own except for (i) non-exclusive licenses granted to its customers in the ordinary course of business, (ii) over-the-counter software that is commercially available to the public, and (iii) material Intellectual Property licensed to Borrower and noted on the Perfection Certificate. No part of the Intellectual Property which Borrower owns or purports to own and which is material to Borrower’s business has been judged invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part. To the best of Borrower’s knowledge, no claim has been made to Borrower in writing that any part of the Intellectual Property material to Borrower’s business violates the rights of any third party (whether for infringement or otherwise) except to the extent such claim would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Except as noted on the Perfection Certificate, to Borrower’s knowledge Borrower is not a party to, nor is it bound by, any Restricted License.
5.3Accounts Receivable. For all Accounts, all statements made and all unpaid balances appearing in all invoices, instruments and other documents evidencing such Accounts are and shall be true and correct and all such invoices, instruments and other documents, and all of Borrower's Books are genuine and in all respects what they purport to be. Following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, Bank may notify any Account Debtor owing Borrower money of Bank’s security interest in such funds and verify the amount of such Account. All sales and other transactions underlying or giving rise to each Account shall comply in all material respects with all applicable laws and governmental rules and regulations. Borrower has no knowledge of any actual or imminent Insolvency Proceeding of any Account Debtor. To Borrower’s knowledge, all (i) signatures and endorsements from third parties on all documents, instruments, and agreements relating to Accounts are genuine, and (ii) all such documents, instruments and agreements are legally enforceable in accordance with their terms against such third parties.
5.4Litigation. There are no actions or proceedings pending or, to the knowledge of the Responsible Officers, threatened in writing by or against Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries involving more than, individually or in the aggregate, One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000). There is no litigation and are no actions, claims, suits or proceedings pending or, to Borrower’s knowledge, threatened that would prevent or seek to prevent consummation of the financing arrangements contemplated pursuant to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents.
5.5Financial Statements; Financial Condition. All financial statements for Borrower and any of its Subsidiaries delivered to Bank fairly present in all material respects Borrower’s financial condition and Borrower’s
results of operations. There has not been any material deterioration in Borrower’s financial condition since the date of the most recent financial statements submitted to Bank by Borrower.
5.6Solvency. To Borrower’s knowledge, the fair salable value of Borrower’s enterprise exceeds the fair value of its liabilities; Borrower is not left with unreasonably small capital after the transactions in this Agreement; and Borrower is able to pay its debts (including trade debts) as they mature.
5.7Regulatory Compliance. Borrower is not an “investment company” or a company “controlled” by an “investment company” under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. Borrower is not engaged as one of its important activities in extending credit for margin stock (under Regulations X, T and U of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors). Borrower has complied in all material respects with the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. Borrower has not violated any laws, ordinances or rules (including, without limitation, Environmental Laws), the violation of which would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. None of Borrower’s or any of its Subsidiaries’ properties or assets has been used by Borrower or any Subsidiary in disposing, producing, storing, treating, or transporting any hazardous substance other than legally. Borrower and each of its Subsidiaries have obtained all consents, approvals and authorizations of, made all declarations or filings with, and given all notices to, all Government Authorities that are necessary to continue their respective businesses as currently conducted, to the extent the failure to do so would reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Effect.
5.8Subsidiaries; Investments. Borrower does not own any stock, partnership interest or other equity securities of any Person except for Permitted Investments.
5.9Tax Returns and Payments; Pension Contributions. Borrower has timely filed all required tax returns and reports, and Borrower has timely paid all foreign, federal, state and local taxes, assessments, deposits and contributions owed by Borrower. Borrower may defer payment of any contested taxes, provided that Borrower (a) in good faith contests its obligation to pay the taxes by appropriate proceedings promptly and diligently instituted and conducted, (b) notifies Bank in writing of the commencement of, and any material development in, the proceedings, (c) posts bonds or takes any other steps required to prevent the governmental authority levying such contested taxes from obtaining a Lien upon any of the Collateral that is other than a Permitted Lien. Borrower is unaware of any claims or adjustments proposed for any of Borrower's prior tax years which would reasonably be expected to result in additional taxes becoming due and payable by Borrower. Borrower has paid all amounts necessary to fund all present pension, profit sharing and deferred compensation plans in accordance with their terms, and Borrower has not withdrawn from participation in, and has not permitted partial or complete termination of, or permitted the occurrence of any other event with respect to, any such plan which would reasonably be expected to result in any liability of Borrower, including any liability to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation or its successors or any other governmental agency.
5.10PATRIOT Act; FCPA; Absence of Enemy Status. Borrower is not identified in any OFAC List. Borrower and each of its Affiliates are in compliance with (a) the Trading with the Enemy Act, and each of the foreign assets control regulations of the United States Treasury Department (31 CFR, Subtitle B Chapter V, as amended) and any other enabling legislation or executive order relating thereto, (b) the PATRIOT Act and (c) other federal or state laws relating to “know your customer” and anti-money laundering rules and regulations. No part of the proceeds of any Credit Extension will be used directly or indirectly for any payments to any government official or employee, political party, official of a political party, candidate for political office, or anyone else acting in an official capacity, in order to obtain, retain or direct business or obtain any improper advantage, in violation of the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended. Borrower is not an “enemy” or an “ally of the enemy” within the meaning of Section 2 of the Trading with the Enemy Act (50 U.S.C. App. §§ 1 et seq.), as amended. Borrower is not in violation of, nor will the use of any Credit Extension violate, the Trading with the Enemy Act, as amended, or any executive orders, proclamations or regulations issued pursuant thereto, including, without limitation, regulations administered by the Office of Foreign Asset Control of the Department of the Treasury (31 C.F.R. Subtitle B, Chapter V).
5.12Full Disclosure. No representation, warranty or other statement of Borrower in any certificate or statement given to Bank, as of the date such representation, warranty, or other statement was made, taken together with all such certificates and statements given to Bank, contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact necessary to make the statements contained in such certificates or statements not misleading in light of the circumstances in which they were made (it being recognized by Bank that the projections and forecasts
provided by Borrower in good faith and based upon reasonable assumptions are not viewed as facts and that actual results during the period or periods covered by such projections and forecasts may differ from the projected or forecasted results).

Any sales of such Collateral may be adjourned from time to time with or without notice. Bank may, in its reasonable discretion, cause the Collateral granted by Borrower to remain on Borrower’s premises, at Borrower’s expense, pending sale or other disposition of such Collateral. Bank shall have the right upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default to conduct such sales on Borrower’s premises, at Borrower’s expense, or elsewhere, on such occasion or occasions as Bank may see fit.
Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, Bank shall have the right to enter upon the premises of Borrower where the Collateral granted by Borrower is located without any obligation to pay rent to Borrower, or any other place or places where such Collateral is believed to be located and kept, and remove such Collateral therefrom to the premises of Bank or any agent of Bank, for such time as Bank may desire, in order to effectively collect, sell, assign, lease, transfer or liquidate such Collateral. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, Bank shall have the right to obtain access to Borrower’s data processing equipment, computer hardware and software relating to the Collateral and to use all of the foregoing and the information contained therein in any manner Bank deems appropriate. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Bank shall have the right to notify post office authorities to change the address for delivery of Borrower’s mail to an address designated by Bank and to receive, open and process all mail addressed to Borrower.
Any notice required to be given by Bank of a sale, lease or other disposition or other intended action by Bank, with respect to any of the Collateral granted by Borrower, which is deposited in the United States mail, postage prepaid and duly addressed to Borrower at the address specified in Section 10, at least ten (10) calendar days prior to such proposed action shall constitute fair and reasonable notice to Borrower of any such action. The net proceeds realized by Bank upon any such sale or other disposition, after deduction for the expense of retaking, holding, preparing for sale, selling or the like and the reasonable attorneys’ and paralegal’ fees and expenses incurred by Bank in connection therewith, shall be applied as provided herein toward satisfaction of the Obligations. Bank shall account to Borrower for any surplus realized upon such sale or other disposition, and Borrower shall remain liable for any deficiency. The commencement of any action, legal or equitable, or the rendering of any judgment or decree for any deficiency shall not affect Bank’s Liens in the Collateral until the Obligations (other than contingent obligations for which no claims have been asserted) are fully paid in cash. Borrower agrees that Bank has no obligation to preserve rights to the Collateral against any other Person. Demand, presentment, protest and notice of nonpayment are hereby waived by Borrower. Borrower also waives the benefit of all valuation, appraisal and exemption laws. Borrower acknowledges that it has been advised by its counsel with respect to this transaction and this Agreement, including, without limitation, all waivers contained herein.
9.2Power of Attorney. Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints Bank as its lawful attorney-in-fact, exercisable upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to: (a) endorse Borrower’s name on any checks or other forms of payment or security; (b) sign Borrower’s name on any invoice or bill of lading for any Account or drafts against Account Debtors; (c) settle and adjust disputes and claims about the Accounts directly with Account Debtors, for amounts and on terms Bank determines reasonable; (d) make, settle, and adjust
all claims under Borrower’s insurance policies; (e) pay, contest or settle any Lien, charge, encumbrance, security interest, and adverse claim in or to the Collateral, or any judgment based thereon, or otherwise take any action to terminate or discharge the same; and (f) transfer the Collateral into the name of Bank or a third party as the Code permits. Borrower hereby appoints Bank as its lawful attorney-in-fact to sign Borrower’s name on any documents necessary to perfect or continue the perfection of Bank’s security interest in the Collateral regardless of whether an Event of Default has occurred until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnification and reimbursement obligations and other obligations which, by their terms, survive termination of this Agreement) have been satisfied in full and Bank is under no further obligation to make Credit Extensions hereunder. Bank’s foregoing appointment as Borrower’s attorney in fact, and all of Bank’s rights and powers, coupled with an interest, are irrevocable until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnification and reimbursement obligations and other obligations which, by their terms, survive termination of this Agreement) have been fully repaid in cash and performed and Bank’s obligation to provide Credit Extensions terminates.
9.3Protective Payments. Without limitation of Section 6.5, if Borrower fails to pay any insurance premium or fails to pay any other amount which Borrower is obligated to pay under this Agreement or any other Loan Document for more than five (5) Business Days after Borrower’s receipt of written notice of such failure, Bank may obtain such insurance or make such payment, and all amounts so paid by Bank are Bank Expenses and immediately due and payable, bearing interest at the then highest rate applicable to the Obligations, and secured by the Collateral. Bank will use reasonable efforts to provide Borrower with notice of Bank obtaining such insurance at the time it is obtained or within a reasonable time thereafter; provided, however, the failure to provide any such notice shall not be deemed to be a breach by Bank hereunder. No payments by Bank are deemed an agreement to make similar payments in the future or Bank’s waiver of any Event of Default.
9.4Application of Payments and Proceeds Upon Event of Default. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Bank may apply any funds in its possession, whether from Borrower account balances, payments, proceeds realized as the result of any collection of Accounts or other disposition of the Collateral, or otherwise, to the Obligations in such order as Bank shall determine in its sole discretion. Any surplus shall be paid to Borrower or other Persons legally entitled thereto; Borrower shall remain liable to Bank for any deficiency. If Bank, in its good faith business judgment, directly or indirectly enters into a deferred payment or other credit transaction with any purchaser at any sale of Collateral, Bank shall have the option, exercisable at any time, of either reducing the Obligations by the principal amount of the purchase price or deferring the reduction of the Obligations until the actual receipt by Bank of cash therefor.
9.5Bank’s Liability for Collateral. So long as Bank complies with reasonable banking practices and applicable law regarding the safekeeping of the Collateral in the possession or under the control of Bank, Bank shall not be liable or responsible for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b) any loss or damage to the Collateral; (c) any diminution in the value of the Collateral; or (d) any act or default of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, or other Person. Borrower bears all risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral.
9.6No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. Bank’s failure, at any time or times, to require strict performance by Borrower of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall not waive, affect, or diminish any right of Bank thereafter to demand strict performance and compliance herewith or therewith. No waiver hereunder shall be effective unless signed by the party granting the waiver and then is only effective for the specific instance and purpose for which it is given. Bank’s rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents are cumulative. Bank has all rights and remedies provided under the Code, by law, or in equity. Bank’s exercise of one right or remedy is not an election and shall not preclude Bank from exercising any other remedy under this Agreement or other remedy available at law or in equity, and Bank’s waiver of any Event of Default is not a continuing waiver. Bank’s delay in exercising any remedy is not a waiver, election, or acquiescence.
9.7Demand Waiver. Borrower waives demand, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of accounts, documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees held by Bank on which Borrower is liable.
All notices, consents, requests, approvals, demands, or other communication by any party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document must be in writing and shall be deemed to have been validly served, given, or delivered: (a) upon the earlier of actual receipt and three (3) Business Days after deposit in the U.S. mail, first
class, registered or certified mail return receipt requested, with proper postage prepaid; (b) upon transmission, when sent by electronic mail or facsimile transmission; (c) one (1) Business Day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier with all charges prepaid; or (d) when delivered, if hand-delivered by messenger, all of which shall be addressed to the party to be notified and sent to the address, facsimile number, or email address indicated below.

11CHOICE OF LAW, VENUE, AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER
THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ALL RESPECTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH, AND ENFORCED AND GOVERNED BY THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, WITHOUT REGARD TO CONFLICTS OF LAW PRINCIPLES THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE APPLICATION OF OTHER LAWS.
Borrower and Bank each submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the State and Federal courts in Cook County, Illinois; provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to operate to preclude Bank from bringing suit or taking other legal action in any other jurisdiction to realize on the Collateral or any other security for the Obligations, or to enforce a judgment or other court order in favor of Bank. Borrower expressly submits and consents in advance to such jurisdiction in any action or suit commenced in any such court, and Borrower hereby waives any objection that it may have based upon lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue, or forum non conveniens and hereby consents to the granting of such legal or equitable relief as is deemed appropriate by such court.
Borrower hereby waives personal service of the summons, complaints, and other process issued in such action or suit and agrees that service of such summons, complaints, and other process may be made by registered or certified mail addressed to Borrower at the address set forth in, or subsequently provided by Borrower in accordance with, Section 10 and that service so made shall be deemed completed upon the earlier to occur of Borrower’s actual receipt thereof or three (3) days after deposit in the U.S. mail, proper postage prepaid.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, BORROWER AND BANK EACH WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON THIS AGREEMENT, ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR ANY CONTEMPLATED TRANSACTION HERETO OR THERETO, INCLUDING CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF DUTY AND ALL OTHER CLAIMS. THIS WAIVER IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR BOTH PARTIES TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. EACH PARTY HAS REVIEWED THIS JURY TRIAL WAIVER WITH ITS RESPECTIVE COUNSEL.
12.1Successors and Assigns. This Agreement binds and is for the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of each party hereto; provided, however, Borrower may not assign this Agreement or any rights or obligations under it without Bank’s prior written consent (which may be granted or withheld in Bank’s sole discretion). Bank has the right, without the consent of or notice to Borrower, to sell, transfer, assign, negotiate, or grant participation in all or any part of, or any interest in, Bank’s obligations, rights, and benefits under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, for clarification, Bank may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement and applicable promissory notes to secure obligations of Bank, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to any Federal Reserve Bank (including as collateral security pursuant to Regulation A and any Operating Circular issued by such Federal Reserve Bank), and such loan(s) and promissory note(s) shall be fully transferable as provided therein.
12.2Indemnification. Borrower agrees to and shall defend, protect, pay, indemnify and hold Bank and its directors, officers, employees, agents, attorneys, or any other Person affiliated with or representing Bank (each, an “Indemnified Person”) harmless from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, demands, interest, penalties, actions, proceedings, judgments, suits, claims, costs, expenses (including, without limitation, Bank Expenses) and disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel for the Indemnified Persons, including, without limitation, in connection with any investigative, administrative or judicial proceeding, or settlement, whether or not the Indemnified Persons shall be designated by a party thereto, or otherwise), which may be imposed on, paid, suffered or incurred by, or asserted against any Indemnified Person (whether direct, indirect or consequential, and whether based on any federal, state or local laws, rules, regulations or other statutory regulations, including, without limitation, securities and commercial laws, intellectual property laws, ERISA and Environmental Laws, statutes and regulations, under common law or at equitable cause, or on contract or otherwise) in any manner relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any or all of the other Loan Documents (and any amendment, waiver, renegotiation, restructuring, or consent relating hereto or thereto), or the Collateral or any other assets or property of Borrower, or any act, event or transaction related or attendant hereto or thereto, the making and the management of any Credit Extension or the use or intended use of the proceeds of any or all Credit Extensions; provided, that Borrower shall not have any obligation to any Indemnified Person hereunder for matters to the extent caused by or resulting from the willful misconduct or gross negligence of such Indemnified Person as finally determined by a court of appropriate jurisdiction in a non-appealable judgment (in which such Indemnified Person and Bank have had a reasonable opportunity to be heard). To the extent that the undertaking to indemnify, pay and hold harmless set forth in the preceding sentence may be unenforceable because it is violative of any law or public policy, Borrower shall contribute the maximum portion which it is permitted to pay and satisfy under applicable law, to the payment and satisfaction of all matters incurred by the Indemnified Persons. Any such amount identified in this Section incurred by any of the Indemnified Persons shall be paid to the applicable Indemnified Persons on demand, together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the day after such demand until paid by Borrower, be added to the Obligations and be secured by the Collateral. The provisions of and undertakings and indemnifications set out in this Section 12.2 shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations (other than inchoate indemnification and reimbursement obligations and other obligations which, by their terms, survive termination of this Agreement) and the termination of this Agreement.
12.3Time of Essence; Waiver of Application of Payments; Etc. Time is of the essence for the performance of all Obligations in this Agreement. Borrower acknowledges that Bank, in entering into this Agreement and agreeing to make any Credit Extension to Borrower hereunder, has relied upon the accuracy of the covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made herein by Borrower and the information delivered by Borrower to Bank in connection herewith (including, without limitation, all financial information and data). Notwithstanding any contrary provision contained in this Agreement or in any of the other Loan Document, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Borrower irrevocably waives the right to direct the application of any and all payments at any time or times hereafter received by Bank from Borrower or with respect to any of the Collateral, and Borrower does hereby irrevocably agree that Bank shall have the continuing exclusive right to apply and reapply any and all payments received at any time or times hereafter, whether with respect to the Collateral or otherwise, against the Obligations in such manner as Bank may deem advisable, notwithstanding any entry by Bank upon any of its books and records.
12.4Severability of Provisions. Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provisions or the remaining provisions of this Agreement.
12.5Limitation of Bank Liability. Bank shall be under no obligation to take any steps necessary to preserve rights in the Collateral against any other parties, but may do so at its option, and all expenses incurred in connection therewith shall be payable by Borrower.
12.6Amendments in Writing; Waiver; Integration. No purported amendment or modification of any Loan Document, or waiver, discharge or termination of any obligation under any Loan Document, shall be enforceable or admissible unless, and only to the extent, expressly set forth in a writing signed by the party against which enforcement or admission is sought. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no oral promise or statement, nor any action, inaction, delay, failure to require performance or course of conduct shall operate as, or evidence, an amendment, supplement or waiver or have any other effect on any Loan Document. Any waiver
granted shall be limited to the specific circumstance expressly described in it, and shall not apply to any subsequent or other circumstance, whether similar or dissimilar, or give rise to, or evidence, any obligation or commitment to grant any further waiver. The Loan Documents represent the entire agreement regarding the subject matter hereof and supersede prior negotiations or agreements relating hereto. All prior agreements, understandings, representations, warranties, and negotiations between the parties about the subject matter of the Loan Documents merge into the Loan Documents.
12.7Counterparts; Inconsistencies. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties on separate counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, is an original, and all taken together, constitute one Agreement. A signature hereto sent or delivered by facsimile or other electronic transmission (including, without limitation, via .pdf) shall be as legally binding and enforceable as a signed original for all purposes. To the extent any terms or provisions contained in any other Loan Document are inconsistent or conflict with the terms and provisions of this Agreement, the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall control and govern.
12.8Survival. All covenants, representations and warranties made in this Agreement continue in full force until this Agreement has terminated pursuant to its terms and all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations and any other obligations which, by their terms, are to survive the termination of this Agreement) have been indefeasibly paid in full in cash and satisfied. Without limiting the foregoing, except as otherwise provided in Section 4.1, the grant of security interest by Borrower in Section 4.1 shall survive until the termination of all Treasury Management Agreements. Sections 2.5, 2.7, 11, 12.2, 12.7, 12.14 and 12.15 shall expressly survive any termination of this Agreement until the applicable statute of limitations shall have run.
12.9Confidentiality. In handling any confidential information, Bank shall exercise the same degree of care that it exercises for its own proprietary information, but disclosure of information may be made: (a) to Bank’s Subsidiaries or Affiliates (so long as such Subsidiaries and Affiliates adhere to the applicable confidentiality obligations set forth herein) (such Subsidiaries and Affiliates, together with Bank, collectively, “Bank Entities”); (b) to prospective transferees or purchasers of any interest in the Credit Extensions (provided, however, Bank shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain any prospective transferee’s or purchaser’s agreement to the terms of this provision); (c) as required by law, regulation, subpoena, or other order; (d) to Bank’s regulators or as otherwise required in connection with Bank’s examination or audit; (e) as Bank considers appropriate in exercising rights and remedies under the Loan Documents; (f) to its lawyers, accountants and workout or turnaround consultants; and (g) to any other third-party service providers of Bank so long as such service providers have executed a confidentiality agreement with Bank with terms no less restrictive than those contained herein. Confidential information does not include information that is either: (i) in the public domain or in Bank’s possession when disclosed to Bank, or becomes part of the public domain after disclosure to Bank through no fault of Bank; or (ii) disclosed to Bank by a third party if Bank does not know that the third party is prohibited from disclosing the information.
Bank Entities may use the confidential information for reporting purposes and the development and distribution of databases and market analyses so long as such confidential information is aggregated and anonymized prior to distribution unless otherwise expressly permitted by Borrower. The provisions of the immediately preceding sentence shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
12.10Right of Set Off. Borrower hereby grants to Bank, a lien, security interest and right of set off as security for all Obligations to Bank, whether now existing or hereafter arising upon and against all deposits, credits, collateral and property, now or hereafter in the possession, custody, safekeeping or control of Bank or any entity under the control of Bank (including a Bank subsidiary) or in transit to any of them. At any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, without demand or notice, Bank may set off the same or any part thereof and apply the same to any liability or obligation of Borrower even though unmatured and regardless of the adequacy of any other collateral securing the Obligations. ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO REQUIRE BANK TO EXERCISE ITS RIGHTS OR REMEDIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY OTHER COLLATERAL WHICH SECURES THE OBLIGATIONS, PRIOR TO EXERCISING ITS RIGHT OF SETOFF WITH RESPECT TO SUCH DEPOSITS, CREDITS OR OTHER PROPERTY OF BORROWER ARE HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVED.
12.11Electronic Execution of Documents. The words “execution,” “signed,” “signature” and words of like import in any Loan Document shall be deemed to include electronic signatures or the keeping of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect, validity and enforceability as a manually executed
signature or the use of a paper-based recordkeeping systems, as the case may be, to the extent and as provided for in any applicable law, including, without limitation, any state law based on the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act.
12.12Captions. The headings used in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not affect the interpretation of this Agreement.
12.13Construction of Agreement. The parties hereto have participated jointly in the negotiation and drafting of this Agreement. In the event an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation arises, this Agreement shall be construed as if drafted jointly by the parties hereto, and no presumption or burden of proof shall arise favoring or disfavoring any party by virtue of the authorship of any of the provisions of this Agreement.
12.14Marshaling; Payments Set Aside. Bank shall be under no obligation to marshal any assets in favor of Borrower or any other Person or against or in payment of any or all of the Obligations. If the incurrence or payment of any of the Obligations by Borrower or the transfer to Bank of any property or assets is or should for any reason be subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside and/or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party or Person under any federal or state bankruptcy law or code, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause or otherwise, including, without limitation, provisions of the federal bankruptcy code relating to fraudulent conveyances, preferences, or other voidable or recoverable payments of money or transfers of property (collectively, a “Voidable Transfer”), and if Bank is required to repay or restore, in whole or in part, any such Voidable Transfer, or elects to do so upon the reasonable advice of its counsel, then, as to any such Voidable Transfer, or the amount thereof that Bank is required or elects to repay or restore, and as to all reasonable costs, expenses, and attorneys’ fees of Bank, the Obligations shall automatically be fully revived, reinstated, and restored and shall exist as though such Voidable Transfer had never been made.
12.15Costs and Expenses. Borrower agrees to and shall pay on demand any and all of the reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses of Bank (including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses of Bank’s outside counsel and its paralegals; all UCC tax, lien, pending suit, judgment and bankruptcy searches and all UCC filing fees; all corporate/limited liability company search fees; all certified document costs; all financial and legal due diligence expenses; all search, filing and recording fees for any federally or state registered intellectual property (ownership, lien or otherwise); all audit, field exam and appraisal costs and fees; costs and expenses incurred by Bank in connection with pre-approved travel expenses of its associates, due diligence, background checks on members of management of Borrower, and appraisals; and, if applicable, real estate appraisal fees, survey fees, recording and title commitment and insurance costs, and any environmental report or analysis) in connection with the structuring, preparation, negotiation, execution, delivery and closing of: (i) this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and all other instruments, agreements, certificates or documents provided for herein or delivered or to be delivered hereunder, and (ii) any and all amendments, modifications, joinders, supplements and waivers executed and delivered pursuant hereto or any Loan Document or in connection herewith or therewith. Borrower further agrees that Bank, in its reasonable discretion, may setoff or deduct all such unpaid amounts from the aggregate proceeds of any Credit Extension or debit such amounts from the operating accounts of Borrower maintained with Bank.
The out-of-pocket costs and expenses that Bank incurs in any reasonable manner or way with respect to the following shall be part of the Obligations, payable by Borrower on demand if at any time after the date of this Agreement Bank: (i) employs counsel in good faith for advice or other representation (A) with respect to the amendment, modification, administration or enforcement of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, or with respect to any Collateral or other assets securing any of the Obligations hereunder, (B) to represent Bank in any work-out or any type of restructuring of any of the Obligations, or any litigation, contest, dispute, suit or proceeding or to commence, defend or intervene or to take any other action in or with respect to any litigation, contest, dispute, suit or proceeding (whether instituted by Bank, Borrower or any other Person) in any way or respect relating to this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, Borrower’s affairs or any Collateral hereunder or other assets pursuant to any of the other Loan Documents, or (C) to enforce any of the rights of Bank with respect to Borrower provided in this Agreement, under any of the other Loan Documents, or otherwise (whether at law or in equity); (ii) takes any action upon the occurrence or during the continuance of an Event of Default to protect, preserve, store, ship, appraise, prepare for sale, collect, sell, liquidate or otherwise dispose of any or all of the Collateral hereunder or any collateral under any other Loan Document; and/or (iii) seeks to enforce or enforces any of the rights and remedies of Bank with respect to Borrower.

consultants; court costs and expenses; court reporter fees, costs and expenses; duplication costs; long distance telephone charges; and courier and telecopier charges.
Borrower further agrees to pay, and to save Bank harmless from all liability for, any stamp, transfer, sales or other taxes which may be payable in connection with or related to the execution or delivery or performance of this Agreement, any or all of the other Loan Documents, the borrowings hereunder, the issuance of the Revolving Credit Note, or of any other instrument, agreement, certificate or document provided for herein or delivered or to be delivered hereunder or in connection herewith, provided that Borrower shall not be liable for Bank’s income tax liabilities.
All of Borrower’s obligations provided for in this Section 12.15 shall be Obligations secured by the Collateral, shall be paid to Bank on demand (together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the day after such demand until paid by Borrower), and shall survive repayment of any Credit Extension or any termination of this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
In the event Borrower shall fail to pay taxes, insurance, audit fees and expenses, consulting fees, filing, recording and search fees, assessments, fees, costs or expenses which Borrower is, under any of the terms hereof or of any of the other Loan Documents, required to pay, or fails to keep the Collateral free from other Liens, except as permitted elsewhere herein, Bank may, in its reasonable discretion upon notice to Borrower, pay or make expenditures for any or all of such purposes, and the amounts so expended shall be paid to Bank on demand (together with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the day after such demand until paid by Borrower), be added to the Obligations and be secured by the Collateral.

Bank hereby notifies Borrower that pursuant to the requirements of the PATRIOT Act, and Bank’s policies and practices, Bank is required to obtain, verify and record certain information and documentation that identifies Borrower, which information includes the name and address of Borrower and such other information that will allow Bank to identify Borrower in accordance with the PATRIOT Act.
