Borrower recognizes that Lender may be unable to make a public sale of any or all of the Investment Property, by reason of prohibitions contained in applicable securities laws or otherwise, and expressly agrees that a private sale to a restricted group of purchasers for investment and not with a view to any distribution thereof shall be considered a commercially reasonable sale thereof.
7.5 Power of Attorney. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, without limiting Lender’s other rights and remedies, Borrower grants to Lender an irrevocable power of attorney coupled with an interest, authorizing and permitting Lender (acting through any of its employees, attorneys or agents) at any time, at its option, but without obligation, with or without notice to Borrower, and at Borrower's expense, to do any or all of the following, in Borrower's name or otherwise, but Lender agrees that if it exercises any right hereunder, it commercially reasonable manner: (a) execute on behalf of any Borrower any documents that Lender may, in its sole discretion, deem advisable in order to perfect and maintain Lender's security interest in the PP Collateral, or in order to exercise a right of Borrower or Lender, or in order to fully consummate all the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, and all other Loan Documents; (b) execute on behalf of any Borrower, any invoices relating to any Account thereof, any draft against any Account Debtor thereof and any notice to any Account Debtor of claim in bankruptcy, any Notice of Lien, claim of mechanic's, materialman's or other Lien, or assignment or satisfaction of mechanic's, materialman's or other Lien; (c) take control in any manner of any cash or non-cash items of payment or proceeds of PP Collateral; endorse the name of the applicable Borrower upon any instruments, or documents, evidence of payment PP Collateral thereof that may come into Lender's possession; (d) endorse on behalf of the applicable Borrower all checks and other forms of remittances thereof received by Lender; (e) pay, contest or settle any Lien and adverse claim in or to any of the Collateral, or any judgment based thereon, or otherwise take any action to terminate or discharge the same; (f)

Any and all reasonable sums paid and any and all reasonable costs, expenses, liabilities, obligations and attorneys' fees incurred by Lender with respect to the foregoing shall be added to and become part of the Obligations, shall be payable on demand, and shall bear interest at a rate equal to the highest interest rate applicable to any of the Obligations. In no event shall Lender's rights under the forgoing power of attorney or any of Lender's other rights under this Agreement be deemed to indicate that Lender is in control of the business, management or properties of Borrower.
7.6 Application of Proceeds. All proceeds realized as the result of any Sale of the PP Collateral shall be applied by Lender first to the reasonable costs, expenses, liabilities, obligations and attorneys' fees incurred by Lender in the exercise of its rights under this Agreement, second to the interest due upon any of the Obligations, and third to the principal of the Obligations, in such order as Lender shall determine in its sole discretion. Any surplus shall be paid to applicable Borrower or other persons legally entitled thereto; Borrower shall remain liable to Lender for any deficiency.

is exclusive. Exercise or partial exercise by Lender of one or more of its rights or remedies shall not be deemed an election, nor bar Lender from subsequent exercise or partial exercise of any other rights or remedies.

In addition to the rights and remedies set forth hereinabove with respect to the PP Collateral, with respect to the PCL Collateral, then Lender shall have, and may exercise, any and all of the rights and remedies set forth in the Contingent Deed of Trust and any related documents, and under applicable law or regulation.

Each Borrower hereby waives: (i) any right to require Lender to institute suit against, or to the exhaust its rights and remedies against, any other Borrower or any other person, or to proceed against any property of any kind which secures all or any part of the Obligations, or to exercise any right of offset or other right with respect to any reserves, credits or deposit accounts held by or maintained with Lender or any indebtedness of Lender to any other Borrower, or to exercise any other right or power, or pursue any other remedy Lender may have; (ii) any defense arising by reason of any disability or other defense of any other Borrower or any Guarantor or any endorser, co-maker or other person, or by reason of the cessation from any cause whatsoever of any liability of any other Borrower or any Guarantor or nay endorser, co-maker or other person, with respect to all or any part of the Obligations, or by reason of any act or omission of Lender or others which directly or indirectly results in the discharge or release of any other Borrower or any Guarantor or any other persons or any Obligations or any security therefor, whether by operation of law or otherwise; (iii) any defense arising by reason of any failure of Lender to obtain, perfect, maintain or keep in force any Lien on, any property of any Borrower or any other persons; (iv) any defense based upon or arising out of any bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, arrangement, readjustment of debt, liquidation or dissolution proceeding commenced by or against any other Borrower or any Guarantor or any endorser, co-maker or other person, including without limitation any discharge of, or bar against collecting, any of the Obligations (including without limitation any interest thereon), in or as a result of any such proceeding. Until all of the Obligations have been paid, performed, and discharged in full, nothing shall discharge or satisfy the liability of Borrower hereunder except the full performance and payment of all of the Obligations. If any claim is ever made upon Lender for repayment or recovery of any amount or amounts received by Lender in payment of or on account of any of the Obligations, because of any claim that any such payment constituted a preferential transfer or fraudulent conveyance, or for any other reason whatsoever, and Lender repays all or part of said amount by reason of any judgment, decree or order of any court or administrative body having jurisdiction over Lender or any of its property, or by reason of any settlement or compromise of any such claim effected by Lender with any such claimant (including without limitation any other Borrower),then and in any such event Borrower agrees that any such judgment, decree, order, settlement and compromise shall be binding upon Borrower, notwithstanding any revocation or release of this Agreement or the cancellation of any note or other instrument evidencing any of the Obligations, or any release of any of the Obligations, and the Borrower shall be and remain liable to Lender under this Agreement for the amount so repaid or recovered,
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 35
to the same extent as if such amount had never originally been received by Lender, and the provisions of this sentence shall survive, and continue in effect, notwithstanding any revocation or release of this Agreement. Each Borrower hereby expressly and unconditionally waive all rights or subrogation, reimbursement and indemnity of every kind against any other Borrower, and all rights of recourse to any assets or property of any other Borrower, and all rights to any collateral or security held for the payment and performance of any Obligations, including (but not limited to) any of the foregoing rights which Borrower may have under any present or agreement with any other Borrower or other person, and including (but not limited to) any of the foregoing rights which Borrower may have under any equitable doctrine of subrogation, implied contract, or equitable or legal doctrine. Each Borrower further hereby waives any other rights and defenses that are or may become available to the Borrower by reason of California Civil Code Sections 2787 to 2855 (inclusive), 2899, and 3433, as now in effect or hereafter amended, and under all other similar statutes and rules now or hereafter in effect.
(c) Consents. Each Borrower hereby consents and agrees that, without notice to or by Borrower and without affecting or impairing in any way the obligations or liability of Borrower hereunder, Lender may, from time to time before or after revocation of this Agreement, do any one or more of the following in Lender's sole and absolute discretion: (i) accept partial payments of, compromise or settle, renew, extend the time for the payment, discharge, or performance of, refuse to enforce and release all or any parties to, any or all of the Obligations; (ii) grant any other indulgence to any Borrower or any other person in respect of any or all of the Obligations or any other matter; (iii) accept, release, waive, surrender, enforce, exchange, modify, impair, or extend the time for the performance, discharge, or payment of, any and all property of any kind securing any or all of the Obligations or any guaranty of any or all of the Obligations, or on which Lender at any time may have a Lien, or refuse to enforce its rights or make any compromise or settlement or agreement therefor in respect of any or all of such property; (iv) substitute or add, or take any action or omit to take any action which results in the release of, any one or more other Borrowers or any endorsers or Guarantors of all or any part of the Obligations, including, without limitation one or more parties to this Agreement, regardless of any destruction or impairment of any right of contribution or other right of Borrower; (v) apply any sums received from any other Borrower, any Guarantor, endorser, or co-signor, or from the disposition of any collateral or security, to any indebtedness whatsoever owing from such person or secured by such collateral or security, in such manner and order as Lender determines in its sole discretion, and regardless of whether such indebtedness is part of the Obligations, is secured, or is due and payable. Borrower consents and agrees the Lender shall be under no obligation to marshal any assets in favor of Borrower, or against or in payment of any or all of the Obligations. Borrower further consents and agrees that Lender shall have no duties or responsibilities whatsoever with respect to any property securing any or all of the Obligations. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Lender shall have no obligation to monitor, verify, audit, examine, or obtain or maintain any insurance with respect to, any property securing any or all of the Obligations.
(d) Foreclosure of Trust Deeds. Each Borrower waives all rights and defenses that the Borrower may have because any other Borrower's Obligations are secured by real property. This means, among other things: (1) Lender may collect from the Borrower without
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 36
first foreclosing on any real or personal property collateral pledged by the other Borrower; and (2) If Lender forecloses on any real property collateral pledged by another Borrower: (A) The amount of the Obligations may be reduced only by the price for which that collateral is sold at the foreclosure sale, even if the collateral is worth more than the sale price; and (B) Lender may collect from the Borrower even if Lender, by foreclosing on the real property collateral, has destroyed any right the Borrower may have to collect from the other Borrower. This is an unconditional and irrevocable waiver of any rights and defenses the Borrower may have because any other Borrower's Obligations are secured by real property. These rights and defenses include, but are not limited to, any rights or defenses based upon Section 580a, 580b, 580d, or 726 of the California Code of Civil Procedure. Each Borrower waives all rights and defenses arising out of an election of remedies by Lender, even though that election of remedies, such as a nonjudicial foreclosure with respect to security for a guaranteed obligation, has destroyed the Borrower's rights of subrogation and reimbursement against another Borrower or any other person by the operation of Section 580d of the California Code of Civil Procedure or otherwise.
(e) Independent Liability. Each Borrower hereby agrees that one or more successive or concurrent actions may be brought hereon against Borrower, in the same action in which any other Borrower may be sued or in separate actions, as often as deemed advisable by Lender. Each Borrower is fully aware of the financial condition of each other Borrower and is executing and delivering this Agreement based solely upon its own independent investigation of all matters pertinent hereto, and Borrower is not relying in any manner upon any representation or statement of Lender with respect thereto. Each Borrower represents and warrants that it is in a position to obtain, and each Borrower hereby assumes full responsibility for obtaining, any additional information concerning any other Borrower's financial condition and any other matter pertinent hereto as Borrower may desire, and Borrower is not relying upon or expecting Lender to furnish to it any information now or hereafter in Lender's possession concerning the same or any other matter.
(f) Subordination. All indebtedness of a Borrower now or hereafter arising held by another Borrower is subordinated to the Obligations and the Borrower holding the indebtedness shall take all actions reasonably requested by Lender to effect, to enforce and to give notice of such subordination.
9.23 Electronic Banking Services. Borrower may use electronic or online banking services offered by or through Lender ("Electronic Banking Services") to make a regular payment to Borrower's loan(s) by transferring the payment amount from Borrower's checking or savings account to the balance of Borrower's loan(s). Borrower can also use Electronic Banking Services to view its account balance. Use of Electronic Banking Services is subject to the terms of the online banking agreement and/or treasury management services agreement between Borrower and Lender.
9.24 Mutual Waiver of Jury Trial. LENDER AND BORROWER EACH ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IS A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT, BUT THAT IT MAY BE WAIVED. EACH OF THE PARTIES, AFTER CONSULTING OR HAVING HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONSULT WITH
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 37
COUNSEL OF THEIR CHOICE, KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LITIGATION BASED UPON OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY RELATED INSTRUMENT OR LOAN DOCUMENT OR ANY OF THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED BY THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY COURSE OF CONDUCT, DEALING, STATEMENTS (WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN), ACTION OR INACTION OF ANY OF THEM. THESE PROVISIONS SHALL NOT BE DEEMED TO HAVE BEEN MODIFIED IN ANY RESPECT OR RELINQUISHED BY LENDER OR BORROWER, EXCEPT BY A WRITTEN INSTRUMENT EXECUTED BY EACH OF THEM. IF FOR ANY REASON THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION ARE VOID, INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE, THE SAME SHALL NOT AFFECT ANY OTHER TERM OR PROVISION OF THIS ACRE TERMS AND PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE UNAFFECTED BY THE SAME AND CONTINUE IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT.

(b)the maximum amount of Purchase Contract Loans available and allowed to be outstanding as described below.
(the "Purchase Contract Facility").
(2)Purchase Contract Loans. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Lender shall from time to time before the Purchase Contract Loans Maturity Date make Loans to Borrower (each a "Purchase Contract Loan") in an amount of up to the lesser of (a) the purchase price that the applicable Single Purpose Subsidiary (as defined below) of OP LP is obligated to pay pursuant to an Eligible Purchase Contract (as defined below) or (b)
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 43
the "as-is" Appraised Value as shown in the Appraisal for such property (such lesser amount is herein the "Value"); provided, however, that the Value of any property shall include the amount of any outstanding Permitted Senior Indebdness on such property and, further provided that the amount of any senior debt plus the amount of the requested Purchase Contract Loan shall not exceed 70% of the Value. The principal amount of each Purchase Contract Loan shall be in amount equal to the lesser of the Value of such property or the remaining availability under the Purchase Contract Facility. There may be more than one Purchase Contract Loan outstanding at any one time, subject to the Credit Limit for Purchase Contract Loans.
For purposes hereof, the following terms shall have the following meanings:
"Eligible Property" means an income producing commercial, office, industrial or retail real estate property located within the United States.
"Eligible Purchase Contract" means a contract for the purchase by a Single-Purpose Subsidiary of OP LP of an Eligible Property, which contract has been fully executed by the parties thereto, is in full force and effect, has not yet closed, and arises in the ordinary course of OP LP's business, which Lender, in its Good Faith Business Judgment, shall deem eligible for borrowing.
"Single-Purpose Subsidiary" means a wholly-owned subsidiary of OP LP that will only own and operate one Eligible Property and engage in no other business.
(3)Requesting Purchase Contract Loans; Repayment. An Authorized Person (as defined below) may, from time to time before the Purchase Contract Loans Maturity Date, request a Purchase Contract Loan from Lender (in writing if required by Lender) provided that Borrower has furnished to Lender all of the documents and information set forth on Exhibit C annexed hereto, which shall include, without limitation: (i) Borrower has provided Lender with an executed updated Compliance Certificate, (as defined below), (ii) the closing of the applicable Single-Purpose Subsidiary's purchase of the applicable Eligible Property pursuant to the Eligible Purchase Contract to which the Purchase Contract Loan relates shall close at the time or promptly after Lender makes such Purchase Contract Loan and (iii) if Lender shall so require, Borrower has provided Lender with the following, all in form and
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 44
substance acceptable to Lender: (y) the Eligible Purchase Contract upon which the Purchase Contract Loan is to be based and (z) such other documents or information as Lender shall request in its Good Faith Business Judgment. Borrower agrees to fully repay to Lender each Purchase Contract Loan on or before the earlier of the 120th day following the day such Purchase Contract Loan was advanced to Borrower and the Purchase Contract Loans Maturity Date.
(4)Initial Advance. The first advance made by Lender to Borrower under the Purchased Contract Facility shall be in principal amount of not less than $6,000,000.00 and shall be used to repay any amounts outstanding under the loan agreement between Pacific Mercantile Bank and Borrower, and must be repaid in full by no later than September 30, 2021 (the "Initial Advance").

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Lender shall from time to time make Nonformula Loans to Borrower in an amount not to exceed a total of $5,000,000 at any one time outstanding (a "Credit Limit") (the "Nonformula Facility"). Nonformula Loans may be borrowed, repaid and reborrowed from time to time (within said Nonformula Loans Credit Limit) prior to the Nonformula Loans Maturity Date. There may be more than one Nonformula Loan outstanding at any one time, subject to the Nonformula Loans Credit Limit. On the Nonformula Loans Maturity Date, Borrower shall repay to Lender all Nonformula Loans. The proceeds of any Nonformula Loan may only be used for working capital purposes, and not to purchase real estate, for capital expenditures or other long term uses.
(2)Requesting Loans. An Authorized Persons may, from time to time, request Nonformula Loans from Lender (in writing if required by Lender).
(3)Yearly Zero Balance Requirement. During each calendar year, Borrower shall maintain a zero ($0.00) outstanding Nonformula Loan balance for at least thirty (30) consecutive calendar days during such year, and Borrower shall make such payments to Lender as are necessary to meet such requirements.
(iii)Authorized Persons; Miscellaneous Regarding Loans. For purposes of this Section 1 to the Schedule to Loan Agreement, "Authorized Person" shall
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 45
mean any one of the following: Aaron S. Halfacre, Raymond J. Pacini, Sandra G. Sciutto or Jason Miller. In Lender's discretion, Loans may be made separately to each Borrower based on each Borrower's assets, liabilities and/or relationship to the Single-Purpose Subsidiaries. When Borrower requests a Loan, Borrower's request shall be deemed to be a representation, warranty and covenant by Borrower that all the limits, requirements and conditions to such Loan that are set forth in this Section 1 of the Schedule and in the other portions of this Schedule and in the Loan Agreement are met, complied with and satisfied, including in the case of a Purchase Contract Loan that the purchase contract upon which the Loan is to be based is an Eligible Purchase Contract and that the amount of the requested Purchase Contract Loan does not exceed the maximum amount permitted hereunder. With respect to each Purchase Contract Loan, Borrower agrees to cause the purchaser under the applicable Eligible Purchase Contract to remain a Single-Purpose Subsidiary of OP LP and the owner of the applicable Eligible Property until such Purchase Contract Loan has been repaid in full.
Interest Rate (Section 1.2):
A rate equal to the Prime Rate in effect from time to time, plus the Applicable Margin (as defined below), provided that the interest rate in effect on any day shall not be less than 4.75% per annum. Interest shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed. The interest rate applicable to the Obligations shall change on each date there is a change in the Prime Rate.
As used herein, "Applicable Margin" shall mean 1.00% per annum.
(a) If at any time Lender reasonably believes or reasonably determines that (i) the pre-replacement interest-rate index applicable to the Notes (such pre-replacement index or replacement index, the “Index”) has been or will imminently be discontinued for any reason, (ii) the pre-replacement Index will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to Lender of maintaining or funding loans based on the pre-replacement Index, (iii) the pre-replacement Index is not widely used as a benchmark Index or is no longer an industry-accepted reference rate for similarly situated loans to the Loans, (iv) adequate and fair means do not exist for Lender to ascertain the pre-replacement Index or the pre-replacement Index is no longer being published by a reliable source reasonably available to and used by Lender, (v) regulatory changes (meaning a change in any applicable law, treaty, rule, regulation or guideline, or the interpretation or administration thereof,
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 46
by the administrator of the relevant benchmark or its regulatory supervisor, any governmental authority, central bank or other fiscal, monetary or other authority having jurisdiction over Lender or its lending office) make it unlawful or commercially unreasonable for Lender to use the pre-replacement Index as the Index for purposes of determining the interest rate or (vi) the administrator of the pre-replacement Index or a governmental authority having jurisdiction over Lender has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the pre-replacement Index shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans, then Lender shall use reasonable efforts to select a replacement Index that Lender in good faith believes is a practical means of preserving the parties’ intent relative to the economics of the pre-replacement Index.
(b) In the event that Lender determines a replacement Index, which determination shall be conclusive, in order to account for the relationship of the replacement Index to the pre-replacement Index, Lender shall also determine, which determination shall be conclusive, any change necessary to the percentage points (“Margin”) to be added or subtracted to the replacement Index necessary to ensure that the replacement method will measure interest rates in a manner similar to the pre-replacement Index, and for the avoidance of doubt, any such change to the Margin shall not reduce the interest rate in effect as of the date of such Index replacement.
(c) In selecting such replacement Index and Margin, Lender may give due consideration to (i) the recommendation of a replacement Index or Margin adjustment, or method of calculating or determining such replacement Index or Margin by the regulatory entities with jurisdiction over Lender or a committee officially endorsed or convened by the regulatory entities, (ii) any evolving or industry-accepted means for determining an Index and Margin, or method of calculating or determining such Index and Margin, for the replacement of the Index and Margin with the replacement Index and Margin, (iii) the then prevailing market convention for determining an Index rate of interest for commercial loans that are comparable to Lender’s commercial loans at that time, and (iv) a similar rate Index from other sources deemed to be reasonably reliable by and available to Lender.
(d) To the extent a replacement Index and Margin are so designated, the replacement Index and Margin shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; and, to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for Lender, such replacement Index and Margin shall be applied in a manner as otherwise reasonably determined by Lender.
(e) Reasonably promptly after such determination by Lender, Lender may, by notice to Borrower, amend the Notes (without the need for any action
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 47
or consent by Borrower) (i) to replace the Index with the replacement Index selected, (ii) amend the Margin to be added to the Index, and (iii) state the date upon which the replacement Index and Margin shall be effective. Upon the operative date, the replacement Index and Margin shall then be deemed the Index and Margin for all purposes of this Note. To the extent practicable, the interest rate based on the replacement Index plus or subtract the Margin, as it may be adjusted, will be substantially equivalent to the interest rate plus or subtract the Margin previously in effect as of the date of the replacement of the Index and Margin.
(f) Borrower understands that Lender may make loans to other borrowers based on other rates as well. A different replacement Index and Margin may be selected for different types of loans and transactions.
Borrower acknowledges that the discontinuation of pre-replacement Index is a future event over which neither Lender nor Borrower has influence but which will necessarily affect such Index and Margin. Borrower acknowledges that the interest rate resulting from replacement Index and Margin will differ from pre-replacement Index and Margin. Borrower agrees that Lender shall not be liable in any manner for its selection and implementation of a replacement Index and Margin, provided that Lender makes such selection in good faith and implementation consistent with market practice, or if not feasible, as reasonably determined by Lender.
The replacement Index and Margin shall remain in effect from the effective date set forth in such notice until the Maturity Date, unless such an instance occurs where the replacement Index is no longer available, then the same process described in this Section shall apply.
3.FEES (Section 1.4):
Loan Fees: In connection with the Purchase Contract Loans, a loan fee in the amount of $59,500.00, which is due and payable concurrently herewith, and in connection with the Nonformula Loan Facility, a loan fee in the amount of $17,500.00, which is payable concurrently herewith.
Unused Line Fees. In connection with the Purchase Contract Loans, Borrower shall pay to Lender, on a quarterly basis, an unused commitment fee in an amount equal to 0.015 % per annum times the difference of the amount of the Purchase Contract Facility minus the average daily outstanding Purchase Contract Loans during the prior quarter.

4133795.6 | 101280-0011 48

As used herein, "Net Asset Valuation Report" shall mean a Net Asset Valuation Report from Cushman & Wakefield, or other outside vendor acceptable to Lender.

The value to be be used shall be determined by
4133795.6 | 101280-0011 51
