-8-


(d)Dispose of, at its office, on the premises of Debtor or elsewhere, all or any part of the Collateral, as a unit or in parcels, by public or private proceedings, and by way of one or more contracts (it being agreed that the sale of any part of the Collateral shall not exhaust Secured Party's power of sale, but sales may be made from time to time, and at any time, until all of the Collateral has been sold or until the Obligations have been paid and performed in full), and at any such sale it shall not be necessary to exhibit any of the Collateral; 

(e)Buy the Collateral, or any portion thereof, at any public sale;

(a)To the repayment of the reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including attorneys' fees and legal expenses, incurred by Secured Party in connection with (i) the administration of this Agreement, (ii) the custody, preservation, use or operation of, or the sale of, collection from, or other realization upon, any Collateral, (iii) the exercise or enforcement of any of the rights of Secured Party hereunder; or (iv) the failure of Debtor to perform or observe any of the provisions hereof; 

 

(b)To the payment or other satisfaction of any liens and other encumbrances upon any of the Collateral; 

 

(c)To the reimbursement of Secured Party for the amount of any obligations of Debtor paid or discharged by Secured Party pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, and of any expenses of Secured Party payable by Debtor hereunder or under the other Loan Documents; 


-9-


(d)To the satisfaction of any other Obligations;  

 

(e)By holding the same as Collateral; 

 

(f)To the payment of any other amounts required by applicable law; and 

 

(g)By delivery to Debtor or to whomsoever shall be lawfully entitled to receive the same or as a court of competent jurisdiction shall direct. 

 

Unless the Secured Party otherwise agrees, all proceeds received by Secured Party from the sale of, collection from, or other realization upon any Collateral (net of the actual unreimbursed out-of-pocket costs incurred by Secured Party in connection with such sale, collection or other realization) and all payments to Secured Party to reimburse it for certain expenses as provided herein if Debtor can not pay 100% of the demanded expense amounts shall be distributed to Secured Party.   

 

6.4Deficiency.  In the event that the proceeds of any sale, collection or realization of or upon the Collateral by Secured Party are insufficient to pay all amounts to which Secured Party is legally entitled, Debtor shall be liable for the deficiency, together with interest thereon as provided in the governing Loan Documents or (if no interest is so provided) at such other rate as shall be fixed by applicable law, together with the costs of collection and the fees and expenses of any attorneys employed by Secured Party to collect such deficiency. 

 

6.5Non-Judicial Remedies.  In granting to Secured Party the power to enforce its rights hereunder without prior judicial process or judicial hearing, Debtor expressly waives, renounces and knowingly relinquishes any legal right which might otherwise require Secured Party to enforce its rights by judicial process.  In so providing for non-judicial remedies, Debtor recognizes and concedes that such remedies are consistent with the usage of trade, are responsive to commercial necessity, and are the result of a bargain at arm's length.  Nothing herein is intended to prevent Secured Party or Debtor from resorting to judicial process at any party's option. 

 

6.6Remedies Not Exclusive.  All rights, powers and remedies herein conferred are cumulative, and not exclusive, of (i) any and all other rights and remedies herein conferred or provided for, (ii) any and all other rights, powers and remedies conferred or provided for in the Loan Documents, and (iii) any and all rights, powers and remedies conferred, provided for or existing at law or in equity, and Secured Party shall, in addition to the rights, powers and remedies herein conferred or provided for, be entitled to avail itself of all such other rights, powers and remedies as may now or hereafter exist at law or in equity for the collection of and enforcement of the Obligations and the enforcement of the warranties, representations, covenants, indemnities and other agreements contained the Loan Documents.  Each and every such right, power and remedy may be exercised from time to time and as often and in such order as may be deemed expedient by Secured Party and the exercise of any such right, power or remedy shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to exercise, at the same time or thereafter, any other right, power or remedy.  No delay or omission by Secured Party or other person or entity in the exercise of any right, power or remedy will impair any such right, power or remedy or operate as a waiver thereof or of any other right, power or remedy then or thereafter existing.

7.4Severability.  If fulfillment of any provision of the Loan Documents or performance of any transaction related thereto, at the time such fulfillment or performance shall be due, shall involve transcending the limit of validity prescribed by law, then the obligation to be fulfilled or performed shall be reduced to the limit of such validity; and if any clause or provision contained in any Loan Document operates or would operate prospectively to invalidate any Loan Document, in whole or in part, then such clause or provision only shall be held ineffective, as though not herein or therein contained, and the remainder of the Loan Documents shall remain operative and in full force and effect. 

7.5Waivers.  No waiver by the Secured Party of, or consent by the Secured Party to, a variation from the requirements of any provision of the Loan Documents shall be effective unless made in a written instrument duly executed on behalf of Secured Party, and any such waiver shall be limited solely to those rights or conditions expressly waived. 

7.6Rights Cumulative.  The rights and remedies of the Secured Party described in any of the Loan Documents are cumulative and not exclusive of any other rights or remedies which the Secured Party or the then holder of the Notes otherwise would have at law or in equity or otherwise.  Except as otherwise provided herein, notice to or demand on Debtor in any case shall not entitle Debtor to any other notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.

7.10Pronouns.  All pronouns and any variations thereof shall be deemed to refer to the masculine, feminine, neuter, singular or plural, as the identity of the person or entity may require. 

7.11Headings.  Section and subsection headings contained in this Agreement are inserted for convenience of reference only, shall not be deemed to be a part of this Agreement for any purpose, and shall not in any way define or affect the meaning, construction or scope of any of the provisions hereof.
