The undersigned is the guarantor (the “Guarantor”) under that certain Guaranty dated June 13, 2012 (as amended, restated, supplemented, or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Guaranty”), in favor of TAT, pursuant to which Guarantor guaranteed all obligations, amounts, and liabilities that Maker is obligated to perform or pay to TAT pursuant to the terms of the Note (as such obligations, amounts and liabilities are amended by the terms of this Amendment and as further amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Guaranteed Obligations”).


Guarantor hereby acknowledges that his consent is not required in connection with this Amendment and agrees that the Guaranty remains in full force and effect and that the Note and the terms and conditions of that certain Pledge Agreement, dated as of April 19, 2016 (the “Pledge Agreement”), between TAT, as secured party, and Maker, as pledgor, do not impair, limit, abrogate or reduce in any manner or to any extent the Guaranteed Obligations. Guarantor remains fully liable under and pursuant to the Guaranty to the fullest extent as if the Pledge Agreement were in place and the terms and provisions of the Note had been incorporated into the Note when originally executed. Guarantor acknowledges that the Guaranteed Obligations are not impaired, limited, abrogated or reduced by (i) any taking, exchange, release, or non-perfection of any collateral, or any taking, release, amendment, or waiver of, or consent to departure from, any guaranty, for all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations or (ii) any manner of application of collateral, or proceeds thereof, to all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations (unless such application satisfies the Guaranteed Obligations in full), or any manner of sale or other disposition of any collateral or any other assets of the Maker for all or any of the Guaranteed Obligations.


Guarantor agrees that the Guaranty may not be amended, restated, or released (other than as set forth in the terms thereof) without the prior approval of a majority of those directors of TAT who are not also officers or employees of TAT.
