Purchase Price: $175,000.00 Purchased Percent: 25% Purchased Amount: $236,250.00
Payment Frequency: WEEKLY Remittance $6,999.00
In consideration of payment by FUNDER to Merchant of the Purchase Price set forth above, Merchant hereby sells, assigns and transfers to FUNDER (making FUNDER the absolute owner) the Purchased Percentage of all of Merchant’s payments, receipts, settlements and funds paid to or received by or for the account of Merchant from time to time on and after the date hereof in payment or settlement of Merchant’s existing and future accounts, payment intangibles, credit, debit and/or stored value card transactions, contract rights and other entitlements arising from or relating to the payment of monies from Merchant’s customers’ and/or other payors or obligors (the “Future Receipts” defined as all payments made by cash, check, clearinghouse settlement, electronic transfer or other form of monetary payment), for the payments to Merchant as a result of Merchant’s sale of goods and/or services (the “Transactions”) until the Purchased Amount has been delivered by or on behalf of Merchant to FUNDER.
Merchant is selling a portion of a future revenue stream to FUNDER at a discount, and is not borrowing money from FUNDER, therefore there is no interest rate or payment schedule and no time period during which the Purchased Amount must be collected by FUNDER. The Remittance is a good faith estimate of FUNDER’s share of the future revenue stream. Merchant going bankrupt or going out of business, or experiencing a slowdown in business, or a delay in collecting its receivables, in and of itself, does not constitute a breach of this Agreement. FUNDER is entering this Agreement knowing the risks that Merchant’s business may not perform as expected or fail, and FUNDER assumes these risks based on Merchant’s representations, warranties and covenants in this Agreement, which are designed to give FUNDER a reasonable and fair opportunity to receive the benefit of its bargain. FUNDER acknowledges that it may never receive the Purchased Amount in the event that the Merchant does not generate sufficient revenue. Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) are only guaranteeing their performance of the terms of this Revenue Purchase Agreement, and are not guaranteeing the payment of the Purchased Amount. The initial Remittance shall be as described above. The Remittance is subject to adjustment as set forth in Paragraph 1.4 and Paragraph 1.5.
FUNDER will debit the Remittance each business day from only one depositing bank account, which account must be acceptable to, and pre-approved by, FUNDER (the “Account”) into which Merchant and Merchant’s customers shall remit the Receipts from each Transaction, until such time as FUNDER receives payment in full of the Purchased Amount. Merchant hereby authorizes FUNDER to ACH debit the agreed Remittance from the Account on the agreed upon Payment Frequency; a daily basis means any day that is not a United States banking holiday. Merchant agrees not to make or cause debits to the Account (other than in favor of FUNDER) at any time that would cause the balance therein on any business day to be insufficient to fund payment in full of the agreed Remittance. The Account may not be used for any personal, family or household purposes. Merchant will provide FUNDER with all required access codes and monthly bank statements regarding the Account so that FUNDER may monitor the Account. FUNDER payment of the Purchase Price shall be deemed the acceptance and performance by FUNDER of this Agreement. Merchant understands that it is responsible for ensuring that the agreed Remittance to be debited by FUNDER remains in the Account and will be held responsible for any fees incurred by FUNDER resulting from a rejected ACH attempt or an Event of Default. FUNDER is not responsible for any overdrafts or rejected transactions that may result from FUNDER’s ACH debiting the agreed Remittance under the terms of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other agreement between FUNDER and Merchant, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default of the MERCHANT AGREEMENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS the Purchased Percentage shall equal 100%. A list of all fees applicable under this Agreement is contained in Appendix A.
THE MERCHANT AGREEMENT “TERMS AND CONDITIONS”, THE “SECURITY AGREEMENT AND GUARANTY” AND THE “ADMINISTRATIVE FORM HEREOF, ARE ALL HEREBY INCORPORATED IN AND MADE A PART OF THIS MERCHANT AGREEMENT.

Merchant and FUNDER agree that the Purchase Price under this Agreement is in exchange for the Purchased Amount, and that such Purchase Price is not intended to be, nor shall it be construed as a loan from FUNDER to Merchant. Merchant agrees that the Purchase Price is in exchange for the Receipts pursuant to this Agreement, and that it equals the fair market value of such Receipts. FUNDER has purchased and shall own all the Receipts described in this Agreement up to the full Purchased Amount as the Receipts are created. Merchant acknowledges that FUNDER’s share of Receipts collected are being held by Merchant in trust and are the sole property of FUNDER until they are remitted to FUNDER.

Merchant agrees that FUNDER is entitled to audit Merchant’s accounting records upon reasonable notice in order to verify compliance. Merchant waives any rights of privacy, confidentiality or taxpayer privilege in any such litigation or arbitration in which Merchant asserts that this transaction is anything other than a sale of future receipts. In no event shall the aggregate of all amounts or any portion thereof be deemed as interest hereunder, and in the event it is found to be interest despite the parties hereto specifically representing that it is NOT interest, it shall be found that no sum charged or collected hereunder shall exceed the highest rate permissible at law. In the event that a court nonetheless determines that FUNDER has charged or received interest hereunder in excess of the highest applicable rate, the rate in effect hereunder shall automatically be reduced to the maximum rate permitted by applicable law and FUNDER shall promptly refund to Merchant any interest received by FUNDER in excess of the maximum lawful rate, it being intended that Merchant not pay or contract to pay, and that FUNDER not receive or contract to receive, directly or indirectly in any manner whatsoever, interest in excess of that which may be paid by Merchant under applicable law result, result thereof, Merchant knowingly and willingly waives the defense of Usury in any action or proceeding.

Security Interest. This Agreement will constitute a security agreement under the Uniform Commercial Code. To secure Merchant’s obligations under the Revenue Purchase Agreement to make available or deliver Purchased Amount to FUNDER and FUNDER’s right to realize the Purchased Amount, as and to the extent required by the terms of the Revenue Purchase Agreement, and performance of and compliance by Merchant with its other undertakings and agreements herein, Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) grants to FUNDER a security interest in and lien upon: (a) all accounts, chattel paper, documents, equipment, general intangibles, instruments, and inventory, as those terms are each defined in Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code (the “UCC”), now or hereafter owned or acquired by Merchant and/or Guarantor(s)(s), (b) all proceeds, as that term is defined in Article 9 of the UCC (c) all funds at any time in the Merchant’s and/or Guarantor(s)(s) Account, regardless of the source of such funds, (d) present and future Electronic Check Transactions, and
(e) any amount which may be due to FUNDER under this Agreement, including but not limited to all rights to receive any payments or credits under this Agreement (collectively, the “Secured Assets”). Merchant agrees to provide other security to FUNDER upon request to secure Merchant’s obligations under this Agreement. Merchant agrees that, if at any time there are insufficient funds in Merchant’s Account to cover FUNDER’s entitlements under this Agreement, FUNDER is granted a further security interest in all of Merchant’s assets of any kind whatsoever, and such assets shall then become Secured Assets. These security interests and liens will secure all of FUNDER’s entitlements under this Agreement and any other agreements now existing or later entered into between Merchant, FUNDER or an affiliate of FUNDER is authorized to file any and all notices or filings it deems necessary or appropriate to enforce its entitlements hereunder.
In the event Merchant, any of its officers or directors or any Owner/Guarantor(s), during the term of the Revenue Purchase Agreement or while Merchant remains liable to FUNDER for any obligations under the Revenue Purchase Agreement, directly or indirectly, including acting by, through or in conjunction with any other person, causes to be formed a new entity or otherwise becomes associated with any new or existing entity, whether corporate, partnership, limited liability company or otherwise, which operates a business similar to or competitive with that of Merchant, such entity shall be deemed to have expressly assumed the obligations due FUNDER under the Revenue Purchase Agreement. With respect to any such entity, FUNDER shall be deemed to have been granted an irrevocable power of attorney with authority to file, naming such newly formed or existing entity as debtor, an initial UCC financing Statement and to have it filed with any and all appropriate UCC filing offices. FUNDER shall be held harmless by Merchant and each Owner/Guarantor(s) and be relieved of any liability as a result of any such authentication and filing of any such Financing Statement or the resulting perfection of its ownership rights or security interests in such entity’s assets. FUNDER shall have the right to notify such entity’s payors or account debtor (as defined by the UCC) of FUNDER’s rights, including without limitation, FUNDER’s right to collect all accounts, and to notify any payment card processor or creditor of such entity that FUNDER has such rights in such entity’s assets. Merchant also agrees that, at the FUNDER’s discretion, FUNDER may choose to amend any existing financing statement to include any such newly formed entity as debtor.
This security interest may be exercised by FUNDER without notice or demand of any kind by making an immediate withdrawal or freezing the Secured Assets. FUNDER shall have the right to notify account debtors at any time. Pursuant to Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code, as amended from time to time, FUNDER has control over and may direct the disposition of the Secured Assets, without further consent of Merchant. Merchant hereby represents and warrants that no other person or entity has a security interest in the Secured Assets.
With respect to such security interests and liens, FUNDER will have all rights afforded under the Uniform Commercial Code, any other applicable law and in equity. Merchant will obtain from FUNDER written consent prior to granting a security interest of any kind in the Secured Assets to a third party. Merchant and Guarantor(s) (s) agree(s) that this is a contract of recoupment and FUNDER is not required to file a motion for relief from a bankruptcy action automatic stay to realize on any of the Secured Assets. Nevertheless, Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) agree(s) not to contest or object to any motion for relief from the automatic stay filed by FUNDER. Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) agree(s) to execute and deliver to FUNDER such instruments and documents FUNDER may reasonably request to perfect and confirm the lien, security interest and right of setoff set forth in this Agreement. FUNDER is authorized to execute all such instruments and documents in Merchant’s and Guarantor(s)(s) name.
Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) each acknowledge and agree that any security interest granted to FUNDER under any other agreement between Merchant or Guarantor(s)(s) and FUNDER (the “Cross-Collateral”) will secure the obligations hereunder and under the Merchant Agreement. Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) each agrees to execute any documents or take any action in connection with this Agreement as FUNDER deems necessary to perfect or maintain FUNDER’s first priority security interest in the Collateral and the Additional Collateral, including the execution of any account control agreements. Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) each hereby authorizes FUNDER to file any financing statements deemed necessary by FUNDER to perfect or maintain FUNDER’s security interest. Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) shall be liable for, and FUNDER may charge and collect, all costs and expenses, including but not limited to attorney’s fees, which may be incurred by FUNDER in protecting, preserving and enforcing FUNDER’s security interest and rights.
Negative Pledge. Merchant and Guarantor(s)(s) each agrees not to create, incur, assume, or permit to exist, directly or indirectly, any lien on or with respect to any of the Collateral or the Additional Collateral, as applicable.
Consent to Enter Premises and Assign Lease. FUNDER shall have the right to cure Merchant’s default in the payment of rent on the following terms. In the event Merchant is served with papers in an action against Merchant for nonpayment of rent or for summary eviction, FUNDER may execute its rights and remedies under the Assignment of Lease.

Guarantor(s) Waivers.

In the event that FUNDER must return any amount paid by Merchant or any other Guarantor(s) of the Guaranteed Obligations because that person has become subject to a proceeding under the United States Bankruptcy Code or any similar law, Guarantor(s)’s obligations under this Agreement shall include that amount.
