Principal and interest shall be paid on the dates and in the amounts and at the rates provided in the Loan Agreement.

Upon the occurrence of any one or more of the Events of Default under the Loan Agreement, or in any other document or instrument delivered in connection therewith, which Event of Default is not cured within any applicable grace period, all amounts then remaining unpaid on this Promissory Note may be declared to be immediately due and payable as provided in the Loan Agreement.
If payment of all sums due hereunder is accelerated under the terms of the Loan Agreement or under the terms of the other Loan Documents executed in connection therewith, the then remaining principal amount and accrued but unpaid interest shall bear interest which shall be payable on demand at the Default Rate, or, if lower, the maximum rate permitted under applicable law, until such principal and interest have been paid in full.

This provision for late charges shall not be deemed to extend the time for payment beyond any “grace period” or “cure period” provided for in the Loan Agreement.
All sums received by the Bank for application to the Promissory Note may be applied by the Bank to late charges, expenses, costs, interest, principal and other amounts owing to the Bank in connection with the Promissory Note in the order selected by the Bank in its sole discretion.
