Shady Retreat Road, Doylestown, PA, 18901, or at such other place as the holder hereof may designate upon written notice to the Debtor, in lawful money of the United States of America and in immediately available funds, the principal sum of Three Million and 00/100 Dollars ($3,000,000.00) (the “Initial Principal Amount” or such lesser or greater principal amount owed from time to time, the “Principal Amount”), plus all interest capitalized as set forth herein plus all accrued interest thereon that has not been capitalized plus all expenses payable pursuant hereto.
This Note amends and restates in its entirety (i) that certain Promissory Note and Security Agreement dated July 21, 2020 (as the same has been amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified prior to the date hereof, the “Original July 21 Note”), made by Debtor in favor of the Holder in the original principal amount of Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($750,000) and for which, as of September 25, 2020 (the “Restatement Effective Date”), the principal amount (excluding any unpaid interest not yet accreted to principal or paid in cash) outstanding is $770,750 immediately prior to being amended and restated hereby, and (ii) that certain Promissory Note and Security Agreement dated July 29, 2020 (as the same has been amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified prior to the date hereof, the “Original July 29 Note”, and together with the Original July 21 Note, the “Original Notes”), made by Debtor in favor of the Holder in the original principal amount of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($250,000) and for which, as of the Restatement Effective Date, the principal amount (excluding any unpaid interest not yet accreted to principal or paid in cash) outstanding is $256,146 immediately prior to being amended and restated hereby. The Debtor and the Holder acknowledge and agree that upon and after giving effect to the amendment and restatement of the Original Notes hereby on the Restatement Effective Date, a total of Three Million and 00/100 Dollars ($3,000,000.00) will be outstanding under this Note and the Original Notes shall be deemed to be replaced by this Note. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is expressly agreed and understood that this Note does not extinguish the outstanding indebtedness evidenced by the Original Notes and is not intended to be a substitution or novation of the original indebtedness, which shall continue in full force and effect except as specifically amended and restated hereby.
The Secured Party hereby agrees, subject to the terms hereof and relying on the covenants, representations, and warranties herein set forth, to make a loan to the Debtor on the date hereof (the “Closing Date”) in an aggregate amount equal to the Initial Principal Amount (the “Loan”). Amounts advanced hereunder that are repaid may not be re-advanced.
(a) Interest. Interest shall accrue on the Principal Amount and on any Principal Increases (as defined below) on the Loan at a rate per annum equal to Applicable Rate (as defined below) from the date hereof until the repayment in full of the Principal Amount plus any Principal Increases together with any accrued interest thereon that has not been capitalized (the “Repayment Date”). “Applicable Rate” means (i) fifteen percent (15%) per annum, from and including the Restatement Effective Date; it being understood that upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the then Applicable Rate shall automatically increase to the Default Rate (as defined below). Interest on this Note shall be calculated based on a 360-day year. Interest shall be payable monthly in arrears on the first day of each month for the prior monthly period, as well as at maturity (whether upon demand, by acceleration or otherwise) (each such date, a “Payment Date”); provided however, prior to September 1, 2021, interest shall be paid and capitalized in kind by increasing the principal amount of this Note (any such increase, a “Principal Increase”) by an amount equal to the interest accrued on the principal amount (as increased by the Principal Increases) during the prior month.
(b) Default Interest. From and after the maturity date of this Note, or such earlier date as all principal owing hereunder becomes due and payable by acceleration or otherwise, or at the Secured Party’s option upon the occurrence, and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the outstanding principal balance of this Note shall bear interest at an increased rate per annum (computed on the basis of a 360-day year, actual days elapsed) equal to nine percent (9%) above the rate of interest from time to time applicable to this Note (the “Default Rate”).
REPAYMENT AND PREPAYMENT:
(a) Monthly Repayment. On each Payment Date commencing after September 1, 2021, in addition to payments of interest described above, the borrower shall also make payments on the Principal Amount of the Loan equal to 1/36 of the then outstanding Principal Amount. The amount of said monthly payments is equal to the amount required to amortize fully the outstanding Principal Amount of the Loan, together with interest, over a period of thirty six (36) months.
(b) Maturity Date. The entire remaining unpaid Principal Amount of this Note, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon and all other amounts payable hereunder, shall be due and payable, if not sooner paid, on September 30, 2022 or an earlier date as a result of a maturity, whether by acceleration or otherwise, pursuant to the terms hereof (the “Maturity Date”).
(c) Payments Due Other than on a Business Day. If this Note or any payment hereunder becomes due on a day which is not a business day, the due date of this Note or payment shall be extended to the next succeeding business day, and such extension of time shall be included in computing interest in connection with such payment.
(d) Prepayment. This Note may be prepaid in full or in part at any time without penalty or premium.
(e) Application of Payments. All payments received by the Secured Party shall be applied first to accrued interest, fees, expenses, and other amounts due to the Secured Party (excluding principal) as the Secured Party determines in its sole discretion, and the balance on account of outstanding principal.

The Secured Party shall have the unrestricted right at any time and from time to time, and without the Debtor’s consent, to sell, assign, endorse, or transfer all or any portion of its rights and obligations hereunder. This Note is a binding obligation enforceable against the Debtor and its successors and assigns and shall inure to the benefit of the Secured Party and its successors and assigns. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Debtor shall not assign its obligations hereunder, or any interest herein, without obtaining the prior written consent of the Secured Party, and any assignment or attempted assignment by the Debtor without the Secured Party’s prior written consent will be void and of no effect with respect to the Secured Party.
(g) Notices. Any demand or notice hereunder or under any applicable law pertaining hereto shall be in writing and duly given if delivered to the Debtor (at its address set forth in the heading of this Note) or to the Secured Party (at its address set forth in the heading of this Note). A notice shall, for all purposes, be deemed given and received: (i) if hand delivered to a party against receipted copy, when the copy of the notice is receipted; (ii) if given by a nationally recognized and reputable overnight delivery service company, the day on which the notice is delivered by the delivery service company to such party; or (iii) if given by certified mail, two (2) business days after it is posted with the United States Postal Service.
(h) Waiver of Jury Trial. The Debtor knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally waives the rights it may have to a trial by jury in respect to any litigation based hereon, or arising out of, under, or in connection with this Note, any document contemplated to be executed in connection with this Note, or any underlying matter, course of dealing, statement (whether verbal or written), or action (each an “Action”).
(i) Consent to Jurisdiction and Service of Process. The Debtor knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally (i) consents in each Action commenced by the Secured Party to the nonexclusive personal jurisdiction of any court that is either a court of record of the State of Delaware or a court of the United States of America located in the State of Delaware, (ii) waives each objection to the laying of venue of any such Action and any claim that such Action has been brought in an inconvenient forum, (iii) waives personal service of process in each such Action, and (iv) consents to the making of service of process in each such Action by registered mail directed to the Debtor at the last address of the Debtor shown in the records relating to this Note maintained by the Secured Party, with such service of process to be deemed completed five (5) days after the mailing thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Secured Party, in its sole and absolute discretion, may initiate an Action in the courts of any other jurisdiction in which the Debtor may be found or in which any property or asset of the Debtor may be located.
(j) Savings Clause. The agreements made by the Debtor with respect to this Note are expressly limited so that in no event shall the amount of interest received, charged, or contracted for by the Secured Party exceed the highest lawful amount of interest permissible under the laws applicable to the Loan. If at any time performance of any provision of this Note results in the highest lawful rate of interest permissible under applicable laws being exceeded, then the amount of interest received, charged, or contracted for by the Secured Party shall automatically and without further action by any party be deemed to have been reduced to the highest lawful amount of interest then permissible under applicable laws. If the Secured Party shall ever receive, charge, or contract for, as interest, an amount which is unlawful, at the Secured Party’s election, the amount of unlawful interest shall be refunded to the Debtor (if actually paid) or applied to reduce the then unpaid amount of this Note. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any amounts contracted for, charged, or received under this Note included for the purpose of determining whether the interest rate would exceed the highest lawful rate shall be calculated by allocating and spreading such interest to and over the full stated term of this Note.
