|2.1||Line of Credit Amount.|
|(a)||During the availability period described below, the Bank will provide a line of credit to the Borrower (the “Line of Credit”). The amount of the Line of Credit (such commitment, the "Facility No. 1 Commitment" and such facility, “Facility No. 1”) is Four Million Dollars ($4,000,000).|
|(b)||This is a revolving line of credit. During the availability period, the Borrower may repay principal amounts and reborrow them.|
|(c)||The Borrower agrees not to permit the principal balance outstanding to exceed the Facility No. 1 Commitment. If the Borrower exceeds this limit, the Borrower will immediately pay the excess to the Bank upon the Bank's demand.|
The Line of Credit is available between the date of this Agreement and December 1, 2024, or such earlier date as the availability may terminate as provided in this Agreement (the "Facility No. 1 Expiration Date").
The availability period for this Line of Credit will be considered renewed if and only if the Bank has sent to the Borrower a written notice of renewal for the Line of Credit (the “Renewal Notice”). If this Line of Credit is renewed, it will continue to be subject to all the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement except as modified by the Renewal Notice. If this Line of Credit is renewed, the term “Facility No. 1 Expiration Date” shall mean the date set forth in the Renewal Notice as the Facility No. 1 Expiration Date and all outstanding principal plus all accrued interest shall be paid on the Facility No. 1 Expiration Date. The same process for renewal will apply to any subsequent renewal of this Line of Credit. A renewal fee may be charged at the Bank’s option. The amount of the renewal fee will be specified in the Renewal Notice.
2.3 Repayment Terms.
|(a)||The Borrower will pay interest on January 1, 2022 and then on the same day of each month thereafter until payment in full of all principal outstanding under this facility. The amount of each interest payment shall be the amount of accrued interest on the Line of Credit as of the interest payment date or such earlier accrual date as indicated on the billing statement for such interest payment.|
|(b)||The Borrower will repay in full all principal, interest or other charges outstanding under this Agreement no later than the Facility No. 1 Expiration Date.|
|(c)||The Borrower may prepay the Line of Credit in full or in part at any time without penalty. The prepayment will be applied to the most remote payment of principal due under this Agreement.|
|(a)||The interest rate is a rate per year equal to the sum of (i) the greater of the BSBY Daily Floating Rate or the Index Floor, plus (ii) 2.00%. For the purposes of this paragraph, "Index Floor" means 0.25% percent.|
|(b)||The BSBY Daily Floating Rate is a fluctuating rate of interest which can change on each banking day. The rate will be adjusted on each banking day to equal the BSBY Screen Rate for U.S. Dollar deposits two Business Days prior to the date of determination for a one month term beginning on that date; provided that if such rate is not published on such determination date then the rate will be the BSBY Screen Rate on the first Business Day immediately prior thereto. “BSBY Screen Rate” means the Bloomberg Short-Term Bank Yield Index rate (“BSBY”) administered by Bloomberg Index Services Limited and published on the applicable Reuters screen page (or such other commercially available source providing such quotations as may be designated by the Bank from time to time). If such rate is not available at such time for any reason or the Bank makes the determination to incorporate or adopt a new interest rate to replace the BSBY Daily Floating Rate in credit agreements, then the Bank may replace the BSBY Daily Floating Rate with an alternate interest rate and adjustment, if applicable, as reasonably selected by the Bank, giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing conventions for such interest rate and adjustment (any such successor interest rate, as adjusted, the “Successor Rate”). In connection with the implementation of the Successor Rate, the Bank will have the right, from time to time, in good faith to make any conforming, technical, administrative or operational changes to this Agreement as may be appropriate to reflect the adoption and administration thereof and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other loan document, any amendments to this Agreement implementing such conforming changes will become effective upon notice to the Borrower without any further action or consent of the other parties hereto. A “Business Day” is a day other than a Saturday or a Sunday on which banks are open for business in the State of New York. If at any time the BSBY Daily Floating Rate or any Successor Rate is less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement.|

The prepayment fee will be equal to the present value of the difference, if positive, between (i) the sum of the interest payments that would have accrued through the end of the Fixed Rate Term on each prepaid installment of principal at a fixed interest rate for such installment equal to the Original Funding Rate, as if the prepayment had not been made, less (ii) the sum of the interest payments that would have accrued on each prepaid installment of principal at a fixed interest rate for such installment equal to the Reinvestment Rate, as if the prepayment had not been made.|
|(b)||The following definitions will apply to the calculation of the prepayment fee: (i) “Fixed Rate Term” means the full term of the credit during which the interest rate was fixed on the principal amount prepaid, (ii) "Original Funding Rate" means with respect to any prepaid installment of principal, the Swap Rate on the date the interest rate was fixed by the Bank on the principal amount prepaid for a term corresponding to a period of time equal to the Fixed Rate Term, interpolated, if necessary, (iii) "Reinvestment Rate" means with respect to any prepaid installment of principal, the Swap Rate on the date the prepayment fee is calculated by the Bank for a term corresponding to the period of time remaining until such principal installment was scheduled to be made, interpolated, if necessary, and (iv) "Swap Rate" means, as of any date, the offered U.S. Dollar interest rate swap rate for a fixed rate payer determined by the Bank on such date by reference to the Bloomberg service or such other similar data source then used by the Bank for determining such rate.|

|(b)||Each disbursement by the Bank and each payment by the Borrower will be evidenced by records kept by the Bank which will, absent manifest error, be conclusively presumed to be correct and accurate and constitute an account stated between the Borrower and the Bank.|
|(c)||All payments to be made by the Borrower shall be made free and clear of and without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff.|
|5.3||Requests for Credit; Equal Access by all Borrowers.|
Any Borrower (or a person or persons authorized by any one of the Borrowers), acting alone, can borrow up to the full amount of credit provided under this Agreement. Each Borrower will be liable for all extensions of credit made under this Agreement to any other Borrower.
Subject to the terms, conditions and procedures stated elsewhere in this Agreement, the Bank may honor instructions for advances or repayments and any other instructions under this Agreement given by the Borrower (if an individual), or by any one of the individuals the Bank reasonably believes is authorized to sign loan agreements on behalf of the Borrower, or any other individual(s) designated by any one of such authorized signers (each an “Authorized Individual”). The Bank may honor any such instructions made by any one of the Authorized Individuals, whether such instructions are given in writing or by telephone, telefax or Internet and intranet websites designated by the Bank with respect to separate products or services offered by the Bank.
|(a)||The Borrower agrees that on the due date of any amount due under this Agreement, the Bank will debit the amount due from deposit account number139100924546 in the name of Zynex Medical, Inc., or such other of the Borrower’s accounts with the Bank as designated in writing by the Borrower (the "Designated Account"). Should there be insufficient funds in the Designated Account to pay all such sums when due, the full amount of such deficiency shall be immediately due and payable by the Borrower.|
|(b)||The Borrower may terminate this direct debit arrangement at any time by sending written notice to the Bank at the address specified at the end of this Agreement. If the Borrower terminates this arrangement, then the principal amount outstanding under this Agreement will at the option of the Bank bear interest at a rate per annum which is 0.50 percentage point(s) higher than the rate of interest otherwise provided under this Agreement.|
Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, a banking day is a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks are authorized to close, or are in fact closed, in the state where the Bank's lending office is located, and, if such day relates to amounts bearing interest at an offshore rate (if any), means any such day on which dealings in dollar deposits are conducted among banks in the offshore dollar interbank market. All payments and disbursements which would be due or which are received on a day which is not a banking day will be due or applied, as applicable, on the next banking day.
The Borrower will pay the Bank, on demand, for the Bank's costs or losses arising from any Change in Law which are allocated to this Agreement or any credit outstanding under this Agreement. The allocation will be made as determined by the Bank, using any reasonable method. The costs include, without limitation, the following:
|(a)||any reserve or deposit requirements (excluding any reserve requirement already reflected in the calculation of the interest rate in this Agreement); and|
|(b)||any capital requirements relating to the Bank's assets and commitments for credit.|
“Change in Law” means the occurrence, after the date of this Agreement, of the adoption or taking effect of any new or changed law, rule, regulation or treaty, or the issuance of any request, rule, guideline or directive (whether or not having the force of law) by any governmental authority; provided that (x) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives issued in connection with that Act, and (y) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor authority) or the United States regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, shall in each case be deemed to be a “Change in Law,” regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued.
Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, all interest and fees, if any, will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days elapsed. This results in more interest or a higher fee than if a 365-day year is used. Installments of principal which are not paid when due under this Agreement shall continue to bear interest until paid. To the extent that any calculation of interest or any fee required to be paid under this Agreement shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed zero for purposes of this Agreement.
Upon the occurrence of any default or after maturity or after judgment has been rendered on any obligation under this Agreement, all amounts outstanding under this Agreement, including any unpaid interest, fees, or costs, will at the option of the Bank bear interest at a rate which is 6.0 percentage point(s) higher than the rate of interest otherwise provided under this Agreement. This may result in compounding of interest. This will not constitute a waiver of any default.
If any payments to the Bank under this Agreement are made from outside the United States, the Borrower will not deduct any foreign taxes from any payments it makes to the Bank. If any such taxes are imposed on any payments made by the Borrower (including payments under this paragraph), the Borrower will pay the taxes and will also pay to the Bank, at the time interest is paid, any additional amount which the Bank specifies as necessary to preserve the after-tax yield the Bank would have received if such taxes had not been imposed. The Borrower will confirm that it has paid the taxes by giving the Bank official tax receipts (or notarized copies) within thirty (30) days after the due date.

|11.15||Customary Advertising Material.|
The Borrower consents to the publication by the Bank of customary advertising material relating to the transactions contemplated hereby using the name, product photographs, logo or trademark of the Borrower.
|11.16||Acknowledgement Regarding Any Supported QFCs.|
To the extent that this Agreement and any document executed in connection with this Agreement (collectively, “Loan Documents”) provide support, through a guarantee or otherwise, for any Swap Contract or any other agreement or instrument that is a QFC (such support, “QFC Credit Support”, and each such QFC, a “Supported QFC”), the parties acknowledge and agree as follows with respect to the resolution power of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation under the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (together with the regulations promulgated thereunder, the “U.S. Special Resolution Regimes”) in respect of such Supported QFC and QFC Credit Support (with the provisions below applicable notwithstanding that the Loan Documents and any Supported QFC may in fact be stated to be governed by the laws of the Governing Law State and/or of the United States or any other state of the United States):
|(a)||In the event a Covered Entity that is party to a Supported QFC (each, a “Covered Party”) becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, the transfer of such Supported QFC and the benefit of such QFC Credit Support (and any interest and obligation in or under such Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support, and any rights in property securing such Supported QFC or such QFC Credit Support) from such Covered Party will be effective to the same extent as the transfer would be effective under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and such QFC Credit Support (and any such interest, obligation and rights in property) were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States. In the event a Covered Party or a BHC Act Affiliate of a Covered Party becomes subject to a proceeding under a U.S. Special Resolution Regime, Default Rights under the Loan Documents that might otherwise apply to such Supported QFC or any QFC Credit Support that may be exercised against such Covered Party are permitted to be exercised to no greater extent than such Default Rights could be exercised under the U.S. Special Resolution Regime if the Supported QFC and the Loan Documents were governed by the laws of the United States or a state of the United States.|
|(b)||As used in this paragraph, the following terms have the following meanings:|
“BHC Act Affiliate” of a party means an “affiliate” (as such term is defined under, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 1841(k)) of such party.
“Covered Entity” means any of the following: (i) a “covered entity” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 252.82(b); (ii) a “covered bank” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 47.3(b); or (iii) a “covered FSI” as that term is defined in, and interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. § 382.2(b).
“Default Right” has the meaning assigned to that term in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 C.F.R. §§ 252.81, 47.2 or 382.1, as applicable.
“QFC” has the meaning assigned to the term “qualified financial contract” in, and shall be interpreted in accordance with, 12 U.S.C. 5390€(8)(D).
“Swap Contract” means (a) any and all rate swap transactions, basis swaps, credit derivative transactions, forward rate transactions, commodity swaps, commodity options, forward commodity contracts, equity or equity index swaps or options, bond or bond price or bond index swaps or options or forward bond or forward bond price or forward bond index transactions, interest rate options, forward foreign exchange transactions, cap transactions, floor transactions, collar transactions, currency swap transactions, cross-currency rate swap transactions, currency options, spot contracts, or any other similar transactions or any combination of any of the foregoing (including any options to enter into any of the foregoing), whether or not any such transaction is governed by or subject to any master agreement, and (b) any and all transactions of any kind, and the related confirmations, which are subject to the terms and conditions of, or governed by, any form of master agreement published by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc., any International Foreign Exchange Master Agreement, or any other master agreement (any such master agreement, together with any related schedules, a “Master Agreement”), including any such obligations or liabilities under any Master Agreement.
This Agreement may only be amended by a writing signed by the parties hereto; which, to the extent expressly agreed to by the Bank in its discretion, may include being amended by an Electronic Record signed by the parties hereto using Electronic Signatures pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
|11.18||Electronic Records and Signatures.|
This Agreement and any document, amendment, approval, consent, information, notice, certificate, request, statement, disclosure or authorization related to this Agreement (each a “Communication”), including Communications required to be in writing, may, if agreed by the Bank, be in the form of an Electronic Record and may be executed using Electronic Signatures, including, without limitation, facsimile and/or .pdf. The Borrower agrees that any Electronic Signature (including, without limitation, facsimile or .pdf) on or associated with any Communication shall be valid and binding on the Borrower to the same extent as a manual, original signature, and that any Communication entered into by Electronic Signature, will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Borrower enforceable against the Borrower in accordance with the terms thereof to the same extent as if a manually executed original signature was delivered to the Bank. Any Communication may be executed in as many counterparts as necessary or convenient, including both paper and electronic counterparts, but all such counterparts are one and the same Communication. For the avoidance of doubt, the authorization under this paragraph may include, without limitation, use or acceptance by the Bank of a manually signed paper Communication which has been converted into electronic form (such as scanned into PDF format), or an electronically signed Communication converted into another format, for transmission, delivery and/or retention. The Bank may, at its option, create one or more copies of any Communication in the form of an imaged Electronic Record (“Electronic Copy”), which shall be deemed created in the ordinary course of the Bank’s business, and destroy the original paper document. All Communications in the form of an Electronic Record, including an Electronic Copy, shall be considered an original for all purposes, and shall have the same legal effect, validity and enforceability as a paper record. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the Bank is under no obligation to accept an Electronic Signature in any form or in any format unless expressly agreed to by the Bank pursuant to procedures approved by it; provided, further, without limiting the foregoing, (a) to the extent the Bank has agreed to accept such Electronic Signature, the Bank shall be entitled to rely on any such Electronic Signature purportedly given by or on behalf of any Obligor without further verification and (b) upon the request of the Bank any Electronic Signature shall be promptly followed by a manually executed, original counterpart. For purposes hereof, “Electronic Record” and “Electronic Signature” shall have the meanings assigned to them, respectively, by 15 USC §7006, as it may be amended from time to time.
|11.19||Conversion to Paper Original.|
At the Bank’s discretion the authoritative electronic copy of this Agreement (“Authoritative Copy”) may be converted to paper and marked as the original by the Bank (the “Paper Original”).
Unless and until the Bank creates a Paper Original, the Authoritative Copy of this Agreement:
(1) shall at all times reside in a document management system designated by the Bank for the storage of authoritative copies of electronic records, and
(2) is held in the ordinary course of business.
In the event the Authoritative Copy is converted to a Paper Original, the parties hereto acknowledge and agree that:
(1) the electronic signing of this Agreement also constitutes issuance and delivery of the Paper Original,
(2) the electronic signature(s) associated with this Agreement, when affixed to the Paper Original, constitutes legally valid and binding signatures on the Paper Original, and
(3) the Borrower’s obligations will be evidenced by the Paper Original after such conversion.
|11.20||Waiver of Set-off.|
Notwithstanding anything contained herein, the Bank hereby waives any right of set-off in the Government Payment Account.
|11.21||Limitation of Interest and Other Charges.|
If, at any time, the rate of interest, together with all amounts which constitute interest and which are reserved, charged or taken by the Bank as compensation for fees, services or expenses incidental to the making, negotiating or collection of the loan evidenced hereby, shall be deemed by any competent court of law, governmental agency or tribunal to exceed the maximum rate of interest permitted to be charged by the Bank to the Borrower under applicable law, then, during such time as such rate of interest would be deemed excessive, that portion of each sum paid attributable to that portion of such interest rate that exceeds the maximum rate of interest so permitted shall be deemed a voluntary prepayment of principal. As used herein, the term “applicable law” shall mean the law in effect as of the date hereof; provided, however, that in the event there is a change in the law which results in a higher permissible rate of interest, then this Agreement shall be governed by such new law as of its effective date.

USA PATRIOT ACT NOTICE
Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account or obtains a loan.

schedule a FEES
|(a)||Facility No. 2 Loan Fee.|
The Borrower agrees to pay a loan fee for Facility No. 2 in the amount of Forty Thousand Dollars ($40,000). This fee is due on the date of this Agreement.
If the Bank, at its discretion, agrees to waive or amend any terms of this Agreement, the Borrower will, at the Bank’s option, pay the Bank a fee for each waiver or amendment in an amount advised by the Bank at the time the Borrower requests the waiver or amendment. Nothing in this paragraph shall imply that the Bank is obligated to agree to any waiver or amendment requested by the Borrower. The Bank may impose additional requirements as a condition to any waiver or amendment.
To the extent permitted by law, the Borrower agrees to pay a late fee in an amount not to exceed four percent (4%) of any payment that is more than fifteen (15) days late. The imposition and payment of a late fee shall not constitute a waiver of the Bank’s rights with respect to the default.
|(d)||Returned Payment Fee.|
The Bank, in its discretion, may collect from the Borrower a returned payment fee each time a payment is returned or if there are insufficient funds in the designated account when a payment is attempted through automatic payment.
|(e)||Unused Commitment Fee.|
The Borrower agrees to pay a fee on any difference between the Facility No. 1 Commitment and the amount of credit it actually uses, determined by the daily amount of credit outstanding during the specified period. The fee will be calculated at 0.25% per year. This fee is due on December 31, 2021, and on the last day of each following quarter until the expiration of the availability period.
