(a) Duly Authorized. This Security Agreement has been duly authorized, executed, and delivered, and constitutes the legal, valid, and binding obligations of Debtor and Guarantor, enforceable against Debtor and Guarantor in accordance with its terms, except as they might be limited by bankruptcy, reorganization, moratorium, insolvency or other similar laws relating to or affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights in general.

(c) No Consents Required. No consent or approval of any person or entity, or of any public authority, is necessary for the valid execution, delivery, and performance of this Security Agreement, except where the failure to obtain such consent or approval could not reasonably be expected to have a material adverse effect.
 
(d) Title to the Collateral; Good Repair. Debtor or Guarantor is or, to the extent that any Collateral will be acquired after the date hereof, will be, the sole owner of the Collateral, holding good and marketable title thereto, and covenants to keep the Collateral free from any lien, security interest, encumbrance, or claim of any person or entity other than the liens and encumbrances of Bank and Permitted Liens. Each of Debtor or Guarantor has the right to grant the security interests created by this Security Agreement. The security interests granted and reaffirmed by this Security Agreement constitute first priority security interests in the Collateral, which will be perfected upon the filing by Bank of the appropriate financing statements subject only to Permitted Liens.

(a) Changes in Location of Chief Executive Office, Books and Records, Collateral.  Debtor shall provide Bank with prompt written notice of (i) any intended change in the chief executive office, or state of formation of Debtor or Guarantor, and/or the office where Debtor or Guarantor maintains its Books and Records all as set forth in the Borrower’s Information Certificate; and (ii) the location or movement of any Collateral to or at an address other than the Collateral Location (other than shipments of Inventory made by Debtor or Guarantor in the ordinary course of its business), all such notices to be received by Bank at least thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of any such change. If any such new location as set forth in subparagraphs (i) and (ii) hereof is on leased or mortgaged premises, Debtor or Guarantor will furnish Bank, prior to the effective date of any such change, with landlord's or mortgagee's waivers pertaining to such premises in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Bank in its reasonable discretion.

(c) Assignment of Accounts. With respect to Accounts, Debtor and Guarantor shall, upon reasonable request, promptly give to Bank, in a form reasonably acceptable to Bank, assignments of all Accounts, all original and other documents evidencing a right to payment of Accounts, aging’s, lists of account debtors, copies of purchase orders, invoices, shipping and delivery receipts, and such other data concerning the Accounts as Bank may reasonably request. If any of the Accounts that are Collateral arise out of contracts with the United States or any of its departments, agencies, or instrumentalities, Debtor shall promptly notify and identify same to Bank, and shall promptly execute and deliver to Bank an assignment of claims for such Accounts in a form reasonably acceptable to Bank, and shall take all steps deemed reasonably necessary or desirable by Bank to protect Bank’s interest therein under the Federal Assignment of Claims Act, as amended from time to time, or any similar law or regulation.

5.2           Remedies.

(b) Right of Set-off. If any one or more Events of Default shall have occurred and are continuing, whether or not Bank shall have made any demand under any of the Loan Documents, and regardless of the adequacy of any Collateral for the Obligations or other means of obtaining repayment of the Obligations , Bank shall have the right, and is specifically authorized hereby to setoff against and apply to the then unpaid balance of the Obligations any items or funds of Debtor and/or any Obligor held by Bank or any Affiliate, any and all deposits (whether general or special, time or demand, matured or unmatured) or any other property of Debtor and/or any Obligor, including, without limitation, securities and/or certificates of deposit, now or hereafter maintained by Debtor and/or any Obligor for its or their own account with Bank or any Affiliate, and any other indebtedness at any time held or owing by Bank or any Affiliate to or for the credit or the account of Debtor and/or any Obligor, even if effecting such set-off results in a loss or reduction of interest or the imposition of a penalty applicable to the early withdrawal of time deposits. For such purpose, Bank shall have, and Debtor hereby grants to Bank, a first lien on and security interest in such deposits, property, funds, and accounts, and the proceeds thereof. Debtor further authorizes any Affiliate, upon and following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, at the request of Bank, and without notice to Debtor, to turn over to Bank any property of Debtor, including, without limitation, funds and securities held by the Affiliate for Debtor's account, and to debit any deposit account maintained by Debtor with such Affiliate (even if such deposit account is not then due or there results a loss or reduction of interest or the imposition of a penalty in accordance with law applicable to the early withdrawal of time deposits), in the amount requested by Bank up to the amount of the Obligations, and to pay or transfer such amount or property to Bank for application to the Obligations.

Bank shall be under no obligation to make or complete a sale regardless of whether notice of sale had been given. Moreover, Bank may adjourn any public or private sale from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed therefor and any such sale may, without further notice, be made at the time and place to which it was so adjourned. Debtor grants a royalty-free license to Bank for all patents, service marks, trademarks, tradenames, copyright, computer programs, and other intellectual property and proprietary rights sufficient to permit Bank to exercise all rights granted to Bank under this Section.

(d) Continuing Enforcement of the Loan Documents. If, after receipt of any payment of all or any part of the Obligations or the obligations of Debtor to Bank, Bank is compelled or agrees, for settlement purposes, to surrender such payment to any person or entity for any reason, then this Security Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall continue in full force and effect or be reinstated, as the case may be. The provisions of this Paragraph shall survive the termination of this Security Agreement and the other Loan Documents and shall be and remain effective notwithstanding the payment of the Obligations, the cancellation of the Security Agreement or any other Loan Document, the release of any security interest, lien, or encumbrance securing the Obligations or any other action that Bank may have taken in reliance upon its receipt of such payment. Debtor also agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Bank with respect to any and all claims, expenses, demands, losses, costs, fines, or liabilities of any kind (including, without limitation, those involving death or personal injury) arising from or in any way related to any hazardous materials or dangerous environments within, on, from, related to, or affecting any real property owned or occupied by Debtor, except to the extent attributable to the negligence or misconduct of Bank.
