FOR VALUE RECEIVED, PHR CHERRY PROPCO, LLC, an Michigan limited liability company (“Borrower”) promises to pay to the order of EMERALD CAPITAL LENDING III, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Lender”), the sum of Four Million Dollars ($4,000,000.00) and such other amounts as Lender has advanced to Borrower, together with interest on the unpaid balance from time to time outstanding at the rate of 9.00% per annum. During the period of any default, the rate of interest shall be increased to 15.000% per annum.




(a)               Commitment Fee. Borrower shall pay to Lender an origination fee in the amount of $20,000.00, which amounts shall be paid prior to or upon delivery of this Promissory Note (this “Promissory Note”).


(b)               Interest shall be payable on the outstanding principal balance of this Promissory Note and any and all other amounts owing by Borrower to Lender under this Promissory Note at the rate of Nine (9%) per annum, compounded monthly, if not paid. Such interest shall be calculated on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360)-day year for the actual number of days elapsed.


(c)               Payments of Interest shall be payable in arrears on the 1st day of the day of the month commencing on September 1, 2021. Payments shall be made to Lender at 1140 Reservoir Ave., Cranston, RI ###-###-#### or as otherwise directed by Lender:


(d)               All principal and unpaid interest under this Promissory Note shall be repaid on the earlier of (A) six (6) months following date hereof or (B) the date of acceleration as set forth in Section 2 below (“Maturity Date”) or the sooner repayment of this Promissory Note. Any principal and accrued interest not previously paid shall be paid in full on by Borrower on the Maturity Date.


2.             DEFAULT. There shall exist a default under this Promissory Note in the event of the failure to make any payment hereunder within five (5) days after when due and after written notice from Lender to Borrower. At any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of the foregoing event of default or upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default by the Borrower under the Mortgage, as defined therein, entire principal of this Promissory Note remaining unpaid at that time, together with the accrued interest thereon, shall, at the election of the holder hereof and without notice of such election and without demand or presentment, become immediately due and payable at the aforesaid place of payment, anything contained herein or any other agreement securing or evidencing the indebtedness hereunder to the contrary notwithstanding, and all costs and expenses of collection, including a reasonable attorney fee actually incurred, shall be added to and become part of the total indebtedness. The holder hereof may, at any time upon or after acceleration or maturity of this Promissory Note, hold and apply its own indebtedness or liability to the undersigned in payment of the indebtedness due hereunder.





3.            SECURITY. This Promissory Note is secured by that certain Mortgage, Assignment of Rents and Leases, Security Agreement and Fixture Filing dated as of even date herewith, executed by Borrower for the benefit of Lender (the “Mortgage”), creating a lien on certain real property (the “Premises”) legally described in Exhibit A attached to the Mortgage; statement of the rights, remedies, and security afforded thereby, and all matters therein contained.


4.             ACCELERATION. In the event of default, the failure of Lender to promptly exercise its right to declare the indebtedness remaining unpaid hereunder to be immediately due and payable shall not constitute a waiver of that right while the default continues, nor a waiver of that right in connection with any future default on the part of the undersigned. Acceptance of partial payments shall not be deemed to constitute an accord and satisfaction, a waiver or a compromise of any sum or obligation owing or default existing hereunder, and shall instead be deemed a payment on account.


5.            WAIVER. The makers, endorsers, sureties and guarantors hereof and all other parties who may become liable for all or any part of this obligation, severally waive presentment for payment, protest, notice of protest and of non-payment and diligence in the enforcement or collection hereof, and hereby expressly consent to any number of renewals or extensions of the time of payment thereof. Any renewals or extensions may be made without notice to any of those parties and without affecting their liability, and they shall not be released from liability on this Promissory Note by reason of any forbearance or extension of time granted to, or the failure of the holder to demand strict performance by, the undersigned or any subsequent owner or owners of the property mortgaged, assigned or pledged as security for this obligation, with or without notice to or the consent of any of those parties.


6.             PREPAYMENT. This Promissory Note may be prepaid, in whole or in part, without penalty. Prepayments shall be applied first upon accrued but unpaid interest, and then in reduction of the outstanding principal balance. No prepayment shall prepay, postpone or defer any regular installment due hereunder, which shall continue to be made in all events.


7.            USURY. It is not intended by this Promissory Note to impose upon the maker any obligation to pay interest in excess of the maximum rate of interest permitted by law in the State of Michigan by written stipulation with the undersigned, taking into consideration all possible exceptions to any restrictions thereon. Any interest determined to exceed that maximum rate of interest shall automatically abate to the extent of the excess. Moreover, if the holder hereof should in good faith and by reference to the provisions of law or an adjudication determine that the maximum permissible rate of interest has been exceeded, the holder shall thereupon have the option of declaring the unpaid balance of this Promissory Note to be due and payable in full.





8.             JOINT AND SEVERAL. If more than one person or party shall now or hereafter join in the execution of this Promissory Note, the liability of all such persons and parties shall be both joint and several. In seeking payment of the Promissory Note, the holder may proceed against or otherwise deal with any individual maker independently and separately from any other maker.


9.             GOVERNING LAW. This Promissory Note and the liability of all parties hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the State of Michigan, except with respect to paragraph 7 above, which shall be governed by the laws of The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, without regard to its conflicts of law principles, where this Promissory Note has been delivered for value.
