This Promissory Note is delivered pursuant to that certain Line of Credit Agreement dated as of the date hereof between the Maker and the Holder (the “Loan Agreement”) and is subject to the terms thereof.

The payment of all amounts due under this Note, and the performance of all obligations of Maker under the Loan Agreement and this Note, are fully secured by the Security Agreement between the Maker and Holder effective as of the date hereof.

(3)an involuntary petition is filed, or any proceeding or case is commenced, against the Maker (unless such proceeding or case is dismissed or discharged within 60 days of the filing or commencement thereof) under any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency, adjustment of debt, liquidation or moratorium statute now or hereafter in effect, or a custodian, receiver, trustee, assignee for the benefit of creditors (or other similar official) is applied or appointed for the Maker or to take possession, custody or control of any property of the Maker, or an order for relief is entered against the Maker in any of the foregoing; 


(4)the occurrence of a breach or default under any agreement, instrument or document to which the Maker is a party or by which it is bound, involving any obligation for borrowed money of more than $100,000 in the aggregate; 


(5)the Maker materially breaches any other agreement with the Holder (including without limitation any security agreement); or 


(6)the Maker borrows any funds from a third party (other than Fromar Investments, LP, a Delaware limited partnership, or its affiliates) without repaying this Note in full or obtaining Holder’s written consent (excluding for this purpose account and trade payables incurred by the Maker in the ordinary course of business), or the Maker is party to a merger, or there is a sale of a controlling interest in the outstanding stock of the Maker, or a sale of all or substantially all of the Maker’s assets, or enters into an agreement for any of the foregoing. 


Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Holder shall have then, or at any time thereafter, all of the rights and remedies afforded creditors generally by the applicable federal laws or the laws of the State of California.


Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, this Note may be prepaid, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the Holder.


All payments by the Maker under this Note shall be made without set-off or counterclaim and be free and clear and without any deduction or withholding for any taxes or fees of any nature whatever, unless the obligation to make such deduction or withholding is imposed by law.


The Maker shall pay the reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees and disbursements) that it incurs and, upon presentation of appropriate receipts, that the Holder incurs with respect to the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of this Note, any security agreement and any other agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby. After the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Maker shall pay all costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, incurred in connection with any act or actions taken to collect or otherwise satisfy the obligations due under this Note, any security agreement and any other agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby.


No delay or omission on the part of the Holder in exercising any right under this Note shall operate as a waiver of such right or of any other right of the Holder, nor shall any delay, omission or waiver on any one occasion be deemed a bar to or waiver of the same or any other right on any future occasion. This Note may not be amended or modified without the prior written consent of the Maker and the Holder.


All payments by the Maker under this Note shall be applied first to any fees and expenses due and payable hereunder, then to the accrued interest due and payable hereunder and the remainder, if any, to the outstanding principal.


The Maker hereby waives presentment, demand, protest and notices of every kind and assents to any permitted extension of the time of payment and to the addition or release of any other party primarily or secondarily liable hereunder.


All rights and obligations hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the State of California (without giving effect to principles of conflicts or choices of law) and this Note is executed as an instrument under seal.


Neither the Maker nor the Holder may assign, sell or otherwise transfer this Note or any of their respective rights and duties hereunder without the prior written consent of the other party hereto.
