The BANK may at any time sell or grant participations in all or part of the CREDIT LINE.
SECTION 8.03. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This AGREEMENT and the LOAN DOCUMENTS integrate all the terms and conditions mentioned herein or incidental hereto, and supersede all oral negotiations and prior writings with respect to the subject matter hereof.

SECTION 8.04. COUNTERPARTS. This AGREEMENT and any amendments, waivers, consents or supplements may be executed in as many counterparts as may be deemed necessary or convenient, and by the different parties hereto on separate counterparts, each of which, when so executed, shall be deemed an original, but all such counterparts shall constitute but one and the same agreement.
SECTION 8.05. AMENDMENTS, ETC. No amendment, modification, termination, or waiver of any provision of any LOAN DOCUMENT to which the BORROWER is a party, nor consent to any departure by the BORROWER from any such provision, shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the BANK, and then such amendment, modification, termination, waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which it is given.

The remedies provided in the LOAN DOCUMENTS are cumulative and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law.
SECTION 8.08. COSTS, EXPENSES, AND TAXES. The BORROWER hereby agrees to pay on demand all costs and expenses in connection with the preparation, execution, delivery, filing, recording, and administration of any of the LOAN DOCUMENTS, including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and out-of-pocket expenses of counsel for the BANK, and local counsel who
may be retained by said counsel, with respect thereto and with respect to advising the BANK as to its rights and responsibilities under any of the LOAN DOCUMENTS, and all costs and expenses, if any, in connection with enforcement of any of the LOAN DOCUMENTS, including, without limitation, work-out, insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings. In addition, the BORROWER shall pay any and all stamp and other taxes and fees payable or determined to be payable in connection with the execution, delivery, filing, and recording of any of the LOAN DOCUMENTS and the other documents to be delivered under any of the LOAN DOCUMENTS, and agrees to save the BANK harmless from and against any and all liabilities with respect to or resulting from any delay in paying or omission to pay such taxes and fees.
SECTION 8.09. DEDUCTIONS. All payments by the BORROWER to the BANK under this AGREEMENT or under the NOTE are to be made net and free of any and all taxes (except for taxes based upon the overall net income of the BANK), duties, imposts, fees, withholdings or deductions (the DEDUCTIONS) of any nature now or hereafter imposed. If any DEDUCTION is, by law, required to be made from any payment hereunder, then the BORROWER shall pay to the BANK such additional amount as will result in receipt by the BANK of a net amount equal to the amount the BANK would have received hereunder had no such DEDUCTION been required. In such event the BORROWER shall, as soon as practical, deliver to the BANK a receipt issued by the relevant taxing authority evidencing the amount of such DEDUCTION and its payment. If the BORROWER is required to pay an additional amount on account of any such DEDUCTION, the BORROWER shall have the right, on not less than three BUSINESS DAYS prior written notice to the BANK, to repay the applicable LOAN.
SECTION 8.10. RIGHT OF SET OFF. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any EVENT OF DEFAULT the BANK is hereby authorized at any time and from time to time, with prior notice to the BORROWER, to set off and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) at any time held, and other indebtedness at any time owing by the BANK to or for the credit or the account of the BORROWER against any and all of the obligations of the BORROWER now or hereafter existing under the AGREEMENT or the NOTE or any other LOAN DOCUMENT, irrespective of whether or not the BANK shall have made any demand under this AGREEMENT or such other LOAN DOCUMENT and although such obligations may be unmatured. The BANK agrees promptly to notify the BORROWER after any such set off and application, provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set off and application. The rights of the BANK under this SECTION 8.10 are in addition to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other rights of set off) which the BANK may have.
SECTION 8.11. GOVERNING LAW; CONSENT TO JURISDICTION. This AGREEMENT and the NOTE shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. Any legal action or proceedings with respect to this AGREEMENT against the BORROWER may be brought in the courts of the United States of America or the State of New York as the BANK may elect, and, by execution and delivery of this AGREEMENT, the BORROWER hereby (i) accepts for itself, generally and unconditionally, the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts, (ii) agrees to be bound by any judgment of any such court with respect to this AGREEMENT or the NOTE and (iii) waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceedings with respect to this AGREEMENT brought in any court of the United States of America or the State of New York located in the City of New York, and further waives any claim
that any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum. In the case of the courts of the United States of America and State of New York the BORROWER hereby agrees to receive service of process in any legal action or proceedings with respect to this AGREEMENT at its offices set forth in SECTION 8.06. Nothing herein shall affect the right to serve process in any other manner permitted by the law.
SECTION 8.12. SEVERABILITY OF PROVISIONS. Any provision of any LOAN DOCUMENT which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions of such LOAN DOCUMENT or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.
SECTION 8.13. HEADINGS. ARTICLE and SECTION headings in this AGREEMENT are for the convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part of the applicable LOAN DOCUMENTS for any other purpose.
SECTION 8.14. WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. THE BANK AND THE BORROWER MUTUALLY WAIVE THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING WITH RESPECT TO THIS AGREEMENT.
SECTION 8.15. PATRIOT ACT. The BANK hereby notifies the BORROWER that pursuant to the requirements of the USA PATRIOT Act (Title III of Pub. L. 107-56) (the ACT), it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each borrower, guarantor or grantor (each, a LOAN PARTY), which information includes the name and address of each LOAN PARTY and other information that will allow the BANK to identify such LOAN PARTY in accordance with the ACT.
SECTION 8.16. CONFIDENTIALITY. The BANK agrees to keep confidential any information provided to it by or on behalf of the BORROWER pursuant to or in connection with the LOAN DOCUMENTS, other than information which has been publicly disclosed or is otherwise publicly available other than in breach of this SECTION 8.16; provided that nothing herein shall prevent the BANK from disclosing any such information (i) to any potential assignee of or participant in the LOANS or any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to the BORROWER and its obligations which agrees in writing to comply with the provisions of this section; (ii) to its affiliates and the employees, officers, partners, directors, agents, attorneys, accountants and other professional advisors of it and its affiliates, provided that such recipients are obligated to keep the information confidential; (iii) upon the request or demand of any GOVERNMENTAL AUTHORITY having jurisdiction over the BANK, including during the course of periodic examinations and reviews of the BANK; (iv) in connection with the exercise of any remedy hereunder; (v) in connection with any litigation to which the BANK may be a party; and (vi) if, prior to such information having been so provided or obtained, such information was already in the BANKS possession on a non-confidential basis without, to the best of the BANKS knowledge, a duty of confidentiality to the BORROWER being violated.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this AGREEMENT to be executed by their respective officers thereunto duly authorized, as of the date first above written.
