The Chargor shall, within five Business Days of demand, pay to, or reimburse, PGT and any Receiver, on a full indemnity basis, all costs, charges, expenses, taxes and liabilities of any kind (including, without limitation, legal, printing and out-of-pocket expenses) incurred by PGT, any Receiver or any Delegate in connection with:
|(a)||this deed or the Secured Assets;|
|(b)||taking, holding, protecting, perfecting, preserving or enforcing (or attempting to do so) any of PGT’s, a Receiver’s or a Delegate’s rights under this deed; or|
|(c)||taking proceedings for, or recovering, any of the Outstanding Indebtedness,|
together with interest, which shall accrue and be payable (without the need for any demand for payment being made) from the date on which the relevant cost, charge, expense, tax or liability arose until full discharge of that cost, charge, expense, tax or liability (whether before or after judgment, liquidation, winding-up or administration of the Chargor) at the rate and in the manner specified in the Agreements.
|(a)||The Chargor shall indemnify PGT, each Receiver and each Delegate, and their respective employees and agents against all liabilities, costs, expenses, damages and losses (including but not limited to any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal costs (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and all other professional costs and expenses) suffered or incurred by any of them arising out of or in connection with:|
|(i)||the exercise or purported exercise of any of the rights, powers, authorities or discretions vested in them under this deed or by law in respect of the Secured Assets;|
|(ii)||taking, holding, protecting, perfecting, preserving or enforcing (or attempting to do so) the security constituted by this deed; or|
|(iii)||any default or delay by the Chargor in performing any of its obligations under this deed.|
|(b)||Any past or present employee or agent may enforce the terms of this clause 15.2 subject to and in accordance with the provisions of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.|
The Chargor shall promptly, at its own expense, take whatever action PGT or any Receiver may reasonably require for:
|(a)||creating, perfecting or protecting the security created or intended to be created by this deed;|
|(b)||facilitating the realisation of any Secured Asset; or|
|(c)||facilitating the exercise of any right, power, authority or discretion exercisable by PGT or any Receiver in respect of any Secured Asset,|
including, without limitation the execution of any mortgage, transfer, conveyance, assignment or assurance of all or any of the assets forming part of (or intended to form part of) the Secured Assets (whether to PGT or to its nominee) and the giving of any notice, order or direction and the making of any filing or registration which, in any such case, PGT may consider necessary or desirable.
|17.||Power of attorney|
|17.1||Appointment of attorneys|
By way of security, the Chargor irrevocably appoints PGT, every Receiver and every Delegate separately to be the attorney of the Chargor and, in its name, on its behalf and as its act and deed, to execute any documents and do any acts and things that:
|(a)||the Chargor is required to execute and do under this deed; or|
|(b)||any attorney deems proper or desirable in exercising any of the rights, powers, authorities and discretions conferred by this deed or by law on PGT, any Receiver or any Delegate.|
|17.2||Ratification of acts of attorneys|
The Chargor ratifies and confirms, and agrees to ratify and confirm, anything that any of its attorneys may do in the proper and lawful exercise, or purported exercise, of all or any of the rights, powers, authorities and discretions referred to in clause 17.1.
Subject to clause 19.3, at the end of the Security Period, PGT shall, at the request and cost of the Chargor, take whatever action is necessary to:
|(a)||release the Secured Assets from the security constituted by this deed; and|
|(b)||reassign the Secured Assets to the Chargor.|
The security constituted by this deed shall be in addition to, and independent of, any other security or guarantee that PGT may hold for any of the Outstanding Indebtedness at any time. No prior security held by PGT over the whole or any part of the Secured Assets shall merge in the security created by this deed.
The security constituted by this deed shall remain in full force and effect as a continuing security for the Outstanding Indebtedness, despite any settlement of account, or intermediate payment, or other matter or thing, unless and until PGT discharges this deed in writing.
Any release, discharge or settlement between the Chargor and PGT shall be deemed conditional on no payment or security received by PGT in respect of the Outstanding Indebtedness being avoided, reduced or ordered to be refunded under any law relating to insolvency, bankruptcy, winding-up, administration, receivership or otherwise. Despite any such release, discharge or settlement:
|(a)||PGT or its nominee may retain this deed and the security created by or under it, including all certificates and documents relating to the whole or any part of the Secured Assets, for any period that PGT deems necessary to provide PGT with security against any such avoidance, reduction or order for refund; and|
|(b)||PGT may recover the value or amount of such security or payment from the Chargor subsequently as if the release, discharge or settlement had not occurred.|
The restriction on the right of consolidation contained in section 93 of the LPA 1925 shall not apply to this deed.
|19.5||Small company moratorium|
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this deed, neither the obtaining of a moratorium by the Chargor under schedule A1 to the Insolvency Act 1986 nor the doing of anything by the Chargor with a view to obtaining such a moratorium (including any preliminary decision or investigation) shall be, or be construed as:
|(a)||an event under this deed which causes any floating charge created by this deed to crystallise;|
|(b)||an event under this deed which causes any restriction which would not otherwise apply to be imposed on the disposal of any property by the Chargor; or|
|(c)||a ground under this deed for the appointment of a Receiver.|
Clauses 13 to 21 of the Facility Agreement shall apply to this agreement as if they were expressly incorporated in this Agreement with any necessary modifications
This document has been executed as a deed and is delivered and takes effect on the date stated at the beginning of it.
