9. Expenses.  Debtor shall pay all of Secured Party’s out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including without limitation fees and disbursements of counsel and appraisers, in connection with the preparation, execution and delivery of this Agreement and in connection with the prosecution or defense of any action, contest, dispute, suit or proceeding concerning any matter in any way arising out of, related to or connected with this Agreement.  Debtor shall also pay all of Secured Party’s reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including without limitation fees and disbursements of counsel, in connection with (a) the preparation, execution and delivery of any waiver, any amendment thereto or consent proposed or executed in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, (b) Secured Party’s obtaining performance of Company’s obligations under this Agreement, including, but not limited to, the enforcement or defense of Secured Party’s security interests, assignments of rights and liens hereunder as valid perfected security interests, (c) any attempt to inspect, verify, protect, collect, sell, liquidate or otherwise dispose of any Collateral and (d) any consultations in connection with any of the foregoing.  All such costs and expenses together with all filing, recording and search fees, taxes and interest payable by Debtor to Secured Party shall be payable promptly following demand and shall be secured by the Collateral.
 
10. Assignment By Secured Party and Lenders.  Secured Party and Lenders may assign any or all of the Obligations together with any or all of the security therefor and any transferee shall succeed to all of Secured Party’s and Lenders’ rights with respect thereto.  Upon such transfer, Secured Party and Lenders shall be released from all responsibility for the Collateral to the extent same is assigned to any transferee.
 
11. Waivers.  Company waives demand, notice, protest, notice of acceptance of this Agreement, notice of loans made, credit extended, Collateral received or delivered or other action taken in reliance hereon and all other demands and notices of any description.  With respect to both the Obligations and the Collateral, Company assents to any extension or postponement of the time of payment or any other indulgence, to any substitution, exchange or release of or failure to perfect any security interest in any Collateral, to the addition or release of any party or person primarily or secondarily liable, to the accep­tance of partial payment thereon and the settlement, compromising or adjusting of any thereof, all in such manner and at such time or times as the Secured Party may deem advisable.

(a) the occurrence of an Event of Default under the Loan Agreement.
 
(b) failure by Company to make payment of any of its Obligations when required hereunder or under the Guaranty.
 
(c) failure to perform under and/or committing any breach of this Agreement or the Guaranty or any other agreement between Company, Secured Party and/or any Lender, except that the failure to perform any term, provision, condition or covenant similar to those terms, provisions, conditions or covenants described in Section 10.5(ii) of the Loan Agreement shall constitute an Event of Default hereunder only if such failure is not cured within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice by the Secured Party of such failure.
 
(d) a default by Company in the payment, when due, of any principal of or interest on any indebtedness for money borrowed other than such a default that could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
 
(e) occurrence of a default under any agreement to which Company is a party with third parties which has a Material Adverse Effect.
 
(f) any representation, warranty or statement made by Company hereunder, in the Guaranty, or in any certificate, statement or document delivered pursuant to the terms hereof, or in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agree­ment should at any time be false or misleading in any material respect.
 
(g) an attachment or levy is made upon Company’s assets having an aggregate value in excess of $25,000, or a judgment is rendered against Company or any of Company’s property involving a liability of more than $25,000, which shall not have been vacated, discharged, stayed or bonded pending appeal within forty (40) days from the entry thereof; provided, however, if any such judgment is rendered against the Company and PI jointly, no Event of Default shall be deemed to have occurred under this subclause (g) unless such judgment is rendered against the Company and PI for an aggregate amount in excess of $250,000.
 
(h) any lien created hereunder for any reason ceases to be or is not a valid and perfected lien having a first priority interest (other than any Permitted Encumbrances which by operation of law would take priority over Agent’s liens in the subject Collateral, it being understood that the lien described in clause (b) of the definition of Permitted Encumbrances may not take priority over the Secured Party’s liens and still constitute a Permitted Encumbrance).
 
(i) if Company shall (i) apply for, consent to or suffer to exist the appointment of, or the taking of possession by, a receiver, custodian, trustee or liquidator of itself or of all or a substantial part of its property, (ii) make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, (iii) commence a voluntary case under the federal bankruptcy laws (as now or hereafter in effect), (iv) be adjudicated a bankrupt or insolvent, (v) file a petition seeking to take advantage of any other law providing for the relief of debtors, (vi) acquiesce to, or fail to have dismissed, within thirty (30) days, any petition filed against it in any involuntary case under such bankruptcy laws, or (vii) take any action for the purpose of effecting any of the foregoing.
 
(j) Company shall admit in writing its inability, or be generally unable to pay its debts as they become due or cease operations of its present business.
 
(k) [RESERVED].
 
(l) if Company attempts to terminate, challenges the validity of, or challenges its liability under, the Guaranty.
 
13. Remedies.  Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any Event of Default, Secured Party shall have the right to demand repayment in full of all Obligations, whether or not otherwise due (in such case Secured Party may deposit any and all such amounts realized in a cash collateral deposit account to be maintained as security for the Obligations).  Until all Obligations have been fully satisfied in cash, Secured Party shall retain its security interest in all Collateral.  Secured Party shall have, in addition to all other rights provided herein, the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC and under other applicable law, and all other legal and equitable rights to which Secured Party may be entitled, including without limitation, the right to take immediate possession of the Collateral and to require Company to assemble the Collateral, at Debtor’s expense, and to make it available to Secured Party at a place designated by Secured Party which is reasonably convenient to both parties and to enter any of the premises of Company or wherever the Collateral shall be located, with or without force or process of law, and to keep and store the same on said premises until sold (and if said premises be the property of Company, Company agrees not to charge Secured Party for storage thereof).  Further, Secured Party may, at any time or times after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, sell and deliver all Collateral held by or for Secured Party in one or more parcels at public or private sale for cash, upon credit or otherwise, at such prices and upon such terms as Secured Party, in Secured Party’s sole discretion, deems advisable or Secured Party may otherwise recover upon the Collateral in any commercially reasonable manner as Secured Party, in its sole discretion, deems advisable.  Except as to that part of the Collateral which is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in nature or is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market, the requirement of reasonable notice shall be met if such notice is mailed postage prepaid to Debtor at Debtor’s address as shown in Secured Party’s records, at least ten (10) days before the time of the event of which notice is being given.  Secured Party may be the purchaser at any sale, if it is public.  Until Secured Party is able to effect a sale, lease, or other disposition of Collateral, Secured Party shall have the right to use or operate Collateral, or any part thereof, to the extent that it deems appropriate for the purpose of preserving Collateral or its value or for any other purpose deemed appropriate by Secured Party.  Secured Party shall have no obligation to Company to maintain or preserve the rights of Company as against third parties with respect to Collateral while Collateral is in the possession of Secured Party.  Secured Party may, if it so elects, seek the appointment of a receiver or keeper to take possession of Collateral and to enforce any of Secured Party’s remedies with respect to such appointment without prior notice or hearing.  In connection with the exercise of the foregoing remedies, Secured Party is granted permission to use all of Company’s (a) trademarks, tradenames, tradestyles, patents, patent applications, licenses, franchises and other proprietary rights which are used in connection with Inventory for the purpose of disposing of such Inventory and (b) Equipment for the purpose of completing the manufacture of unfinished goods.  The proceeds realized from the sale of any Collateral shall be applied as follows:  first, to the costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred by Secured Party for collection and for acquisition, completion, protection, removal, storage, sale and deliver of the Collateral; second, to the payment of the Obligations in such order as Secured Party elects.  If any deficiency shall arise, Company shall remain liable to Secured Party therefor.
 
14. Waiver; Cumulative Remedies.  Failure by Secured Party to exercise any right, remedy or option under this Agreement or any supplement hereto or any other agreement between Company and Secured Party or delay by Secured Party in exercising the same, will not operate as a waiver; no waiver by Secured Party will be effective unless it is in writing and then only to the extent specifically stated.  Secured Party’s rights and remedies under this Agreement will be cumulative and not exclusive of any other right or remedy which Secured Party may have.
 
15. Notices.  Any notice or request hereunder may be given to Company or to Secured Party at their respective addresses set forth below or at such other address as may hereafter be specified in a notice designated as a notice of change of address under this Section 15.  Any notice, request, demand, direction or other communication (for purposes of this Section 15 only, a “Notice”) to be given to or made upon any party hereto under any provision of this Agreement shall be given or made by telephone or in writing (which includes by means of electronic transmission (i.e., “e-mail”) or facsimile transmission or by setting forth such Notice on a site on the World Wide Web (a “Website Posting”) if Notice of such Website Posting (including the information necessary to access such site) has previously been delivered to the applicable parties hereto by another means set forth in this Section 15) in accordance with this Section 15.  Any such Notice must be delivered to the applicable parties hereto at the addresses and numbers set forth under their respective names on Section 15 hereof or in accordance with any subsequent unrevoked Notice from any such party that is given in accordance with this Section 15.  Any Notice shall be effective:
 
(a) In the case of hand-delivery, when delivered;
 
(b) If given by mail, four (4) days after such Notice is deposited with the United States Postal Service, with first-class postage prepaid, return receipt requested;
 
(c) In the case of a telephonic Notice, when a party is contacted by telephone, if delivery of such telephonic Notice is confirmed no later than the next Business Day by hand delivery, a facsimile or electronic transmission, a Website Posting or an overnight courier delivery of a confirmatory Notice (received at or before noon on such next Business Day);
 
(d) In the case of a facsimile transmission, when sent to the applicable party’s facsimile machine’s telephone number, if the party sending such Notice receives confirmation of the delivery thereof from its own facsimile machine;
 
(e) In the case of electronic transmission, when actually received;
 
(f) In the case of a Website Posting, upon delivery of a Notice of such posting (including the information necessary to access such site) by another means set forth in this Section 15; and

17. Limitation of Liability.  Company acknowledges and understands that in order to assure repayment of the Obligations, Secured Party may be required to exercise any and all of Secured Party’s rights and remedies hereunder and agrees that neither Secured Party nor any of Secured Party’s agents shall be liable for acts taken or omissions made in connection herewith or therewith except for actual bad faith.
