Upon the expiration of the Liens of such other lenders or the termination of their prohibition of Liens in favor of other Lenders, the Third Party Equipment shall automatically become part of the Collateral, and Lender is authorized at that time to amend any filed financing statement(s) to reflect that change. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the obligations hereunder shall not be subordinate in right of payment to any obligations to other lenders, equipment lenders or equipment lessors, and Lender’s rights and remedies hereunder shall not in any way be subordinate to the rights and remedies of any such lenders or equipment lessors.

-12-


 

               (1) Make such payments and do such acts as Lender considers necessary or reasonable to protect Lender’s security interest in the Collateral. Borrower agrees to assemble the Collateral if Lender so requires and to make the Collateral available to Lender as Lender may designate. Borrower authorizes Lender and its designees and agents to enter the premises where the Collateral is located, to take and maintain possession of the Collateral, or any part of it, and to pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any Lien which in Lender’s determination appears or is claimed to be prior or superior to its security interest and to pay all expenses incurred in connection therewith. With respect to any of Borrower’s owned premises, Borrower hereby grants Lender a license to enter into possession of such premises and to occupy the same, without charge, for up to one hundred twenty (120) days in order to exercise any of Lender’s rights or remedies provided herein, at law, in equity, or otherwise;
               (2) Ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, advertise for sale, and sell (in the manner provided for herein) the Collateral. Lender and its agents and any purchasers at or after foreclosure are hereby granted a nonexclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, fully paid, royalty-free license or other right, solely pursuant to the provisions of this Section 9, to use, without charge, Borrower’s Intellectual Property, including without limitation, labels, patents, copyrights, rights of use of any name, trade secrets, trade names, trademarks, service marks, and advertising matter, or any property of a similar nature, now or at any time hereafter owned or acquired by Borrower or in which Borrower now or at any time hereafter has any rights; provided that such license shall only be exercisable in connection with the disposition of Collateral upon Lender’s exercise of its remedies hereunder;
               (3) Sell the Collateral at either a public or private sale, or both, by way of one or more contracts or transactions, for cash or on terms, in such manner and at such places (including Borrower’s premises) as Lender determines are commercially reasonable; and
               (4) Credit bid and purchase all or any portion of the Collateral at any public sale.
Any deficiency that exists after disposition of the Collateral as provided above will be paid immediately by Borrower.
          (b) Set Off Right. Lender may set off and apply to the obligations hereunder any and all indebtedness at any time owing to or for the credit or the account of Borrower or any other assets of Borrower in Lender’s possession or control.
          (c) Effect of Sale. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and during the continuation thereof, to the extent permitted by law, Borrower covenants that it will not at any time insist upon or plead, or in any manner whatsoever claim or take any benefit or advantage of, any stay or extension law now or at any time hereafter in force, nor claim, take nor insist upon any benefit or advantage of or from any law now or hereafter in force providing for the valuation or appraisement of the Collateral or any part thereof prior to any sale or sales thereof to be made pursuant to any provision herein contained, or to the decree, judgment or order of any court of competent jurisdiction; nor, after such sale or sales, claim or exercise any right under any statute now or hereafter made or enacted by any state or otherwise to redeem the property so sold or any part thereof, and, to the full extent legally permitted, except as to rights

expressly provided herein, hereby expressly waives for itself and on behalf of each and every Person, except decree or judgment creditors of Borrower, acquiring any interest in or title to the Collateral or any part thereof subsequent to the date of this Agreement, all benefit and advantage of any such law or laws, and covenants that it will not invoke or utilize any such law or laws or otherwise hinder, delay or impede the execution of any power herein granted and delegated to Lender, but will suffer and permit the execution of every such power as though no such power, law or laws had been made or enacted. Any sale, whether under any power of sale hereby given or by virtue of judicial proceedings, shall operate to divest all right, title, interest, claim and demand whatsoever, either at law or in equity, of Borrower in and to the property sold, and shall be a perpetual bar, both at law and in equity, against Borrower, its successors and assigns, and against any and all Persons claiming the property sold or any part thereof under, by or through Borrower, its successors or assigns.
          (d) Power of Attorney in Respect of the Collateral. Borrower does hereby irrevocably appoint Lender (which appointment is coupled with an interest), the true and lawful attorney in fact of Borrower with full power of substitution, for it and in its name to file any notices of security interests, financing statements and continuations and amendments thereof pursuant to the Code or federal law, as may be necessary to perfect, or to continue the perfection of Lender’s security interests in the Collateral. Borrower does hereby irrevocably appoint Lender (which appointment is coupled with an interest) on the occurrence of an Event of Default and during the continuation thereof, the true and lawful attorney in fact of Borrower with full power of substitution, for it and in its name: (a) to ask, demand, collect, receive, receipt for, sue for, compound and give acquittance for any and all rents, issues, profits, avails, distributions, income, payment draws and other sums in which a security interest is granted under Section 5 with full power to settle, adjust or compromise any claim thereunder as fully as if Lender were Borrower itself; (b) to receive payment of and to endorse the name of Borrower to any items of Collateral (including checks, drafts and other orders for the payment of money) that come into Lender’s possession or under Lender’s control; (c) to make all demands, consents and waivers, or take any other action with respect to, the Collateral; (d) in Lender’s discretion to file any claim or take any other action or proceedings, either in its own name or in the name of Borrower or otherwise, which Lender may reasonably deem necessary or appropriate to protect and preserve the right, title and interest of Lender in and to the Collateral; (e) endorse Borrower’s name on any checks or other forms of payment or security; (f) sign Borrower’s name on any invoice or bill of lading for any account or drafts against account debtors; (g) make, settle, and adjust all claims under Borrower’s insurance policies; (h) settle and adjust disputes and claims about the accounts directly with account debtors, for amounts and on terms Lender determines reasonable; (i) transfer the Collateral into the name of Lender or a third party as the Code permits; and G) to otherwise act with respect thereto as though Lender were the outright owner of the Collateral.
     10. Remedies Cumulative, Etc.
          (a) No right or remedy conferred upon or reserved to Lender hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity is intended to be exclusive of any other right or remedy, and each and every such right or remedy shall be cumulative and concurrent, and in addition to every other such right or remedy, and may be pursued singly, concurrently, successively or otherwise, at the sole discretion of Lender, and shall not be exhausted by anyone exercise thereof but may be exercised as often as occasion therefor shall occur.

          (c) Costs and Expenses. Following the occurrence of any Event of Default, Borrower shall pay upon demand all costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) incurred by Lender in the exercise of any of its rights, remedies or powers under this Third Amended and Restated Note and any amount thereof not paid promptly following demand therefor shall be added to the principal sum hereunder and shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the date of such demand until paid in full.

          (a) General Indemnity.

Such indemnities shall continue in full force and effect, notwithstanding the expiration or termination of this Third Amended and Restated Note. Upon Lender’s written demand, Borrower shall assume and diligently conduct, at its sole cost and expense, the entire defense of Lender, each of its partners, and each of their respective, agents, employees, directors, officers, shareholders, successors and assigns against any indemnified Claim described in this Section.
