As security for the full, prompt and complete payment and performance by Guarantors of the Secured Obligations, each Guarantor hereby grants to, and creates in favor of, Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Creditors, a continuing security interest in, and Lien on, all of the Collateral.


          2.2 Set-Off. All cash, moneys, investment property and other Properties of Guarantors and the proceeds thereof now or hereafter held or received by any Secured Creditor from or for the account of Guarantors, including any and all deposits (general or special), account balances and credits of Guarantors with any Secured Creditor or any Secured Creditor Affiliate at any time existing: (i) are part of the Collateral, (ii) will be held as security for the Secured Obligations, and (iii) may be set-off and applied without notice to any Guarantor (such notice being expressly waived by Guarantors) against any or all Secured Obligations at any time following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default which has not been waived by the Secured Creditors, and each Secured Creditor or Secured Creditor Affiliate has the right at any time following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default which has not been waived by the Secured Creditors to refuse to allow withdrawals from any account of any Guarantor without notice to any Guarantor (such notice being expressly waived by Guarantors).

Agent will promptly notify Guarantors of Agent’s receipt of such funds for application against the Secured Obligations, but Agent’s failure to do so will not affect the validity or enforceability thereof. Agent may give notice of the above grant of a security interest in, and assignment of, such deposits and other sums to any Secured Creditor Affiliate.

3. PERFECTION OF AGENT’S SECURITY INTEREST; DUTY OF CARE.

          3.1 Required Guarantor Actions. Until the termination of this Agreement, Guarantors shall perform any and all steps and take all actions requested by Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith, from time to time to perfect, maintain, protect, and enforce Agent’s security interest in, and Lien on, the Collateral, including (i) executing and delivering all appropriate documents and instruments as Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith, may determine are necessary or desirable to perfect, preserve, or enforce Agent’s interest in the Collateral, including financing statements, all in form and substance satisfactory to Agent in its discretion exercised in good faith, (ii) delivering and indorsing to Agent any warehouse receipts or other documents of title covering that portion of the Collateral which, with Agent’s consent, may be located in warehouses and in respect of which warehouse receipts are issued, (iii) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default which has not been waived by the Secured Creditors, transferring inventory to warehouses approved by Agent, (iv) placing notations on Guarantors’ books of account to disclose Agent’s security interest and Lien therein, and (v) taking such other steps and actions as deemed necessary or desirable by Agent to perfect and enforce Agent’s security interest in, and Lien on, and other rights and interests in, the Collateral.

          3.2 Financing Statements; Notices. Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably authorizes Agent at any time and from time to time to file in any filing office required under applicable law any initial financing statements and amendments thereto that: (i) indicate the Collateral (a) as all assets of Guarantors, whether now owned or hereafter acquired or arising, and all proceeds and products thereof and (b) as being of an equal or lesser scope or with greater detail, and (ii) provide any other information required by Part 5 of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code or required under applicable law for the sufficiency or filing office acceptance of any financing statement or amendment, including whether such Guarantor is an organization, the type of organization and any organizational identification number issued to such Guarantor. Each Guarantor hereby irrevocably authorizes Agent at any time and from time to time to correct or complete, or to cause to be corrected or completed, any financing statements, continuation statements or other such documents as have been filed naming such Guarantor as debtor and Agent as secured party. Each Guarantor agrees to furnish any such information to Agent promptly upon request. At Agent’s request, each Guarantor will execute notices appropriate under any applicable requirements of law that Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith, deems desirable to evidence, perfect, or protect its security interest in and other Liens on the Collateral in such form(s) as are satisfactory to Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith. Each Guarantor will pay the cost of filing all financing statements and other notices in all public offices where filing is deemed by Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith, to be necessary or desirable to perfect, protect or enforce the security interest and Lien granted to Agent hereunder. A carbon, photographic, photostatic or other reproduction of this Agreement or of a financing statement is sufficient as a financing statement. Agent is hereby authorized to


give notice to any creditor, landlord or any other Person as may be necessary or desirable under applicable laws to evidence, protect, perfect, or enforce the security interest and Lien granted to Agent in the Collateral.

          3.3 Bailees; Consignees; Warehousemen; Landlords. No Guarantor shall store any inventory at any leased location, or place any inventory with or in the possession or control of any bailee, processor, warehouseman, consignee or any other like Person under any arrangement, practice or agreement (oral or written), except, in each case under this Section 3.3, to the extent that: (i) Agent has consented in writing to such action, or (ii) the applicable landlord, bailee, processor, warehouseman, consignee or other like Person has executed in favor of Agent a landlord waiver and access agreement or a bailee, processor, consignee, warehouseman or similar written waiver and access agreement.

          3.4 Impositions; Protection of Agent’s Interests. To protect, perfect, or enforce, from time to time, Agent’s rights or interests in the Collateral, Agent may, in its discretion (but without any obligation to do so), (i) discharge any Liens (other than Permitted Liens so long as no Event of Default, which has not been waived by the Secured Creditors, has occurred and is continuing) at any time levied or placed on the Collateral, (ii) pay any insurance to the extent any Guarantor has failed to timely pay the same, (iii) maintain guards where any Collateral is located if an Event of Default has occurred, which has not been waived by the Secured Creditors, and is continuing, and (iv) obtain any record from any service bureau and pay such service bureau the cost thereof. All costs and expenses incurred by Agent in exercising its discretion under this Section 3.4 will be part of the Secured Obligations, payable on Agent’s demand and secured by the Loan Collateral.

          3.5 Agent’s Duty of Care. Agent shall have no duty of care with respect to the Collateral except that Agent shall exercise reasonable care with respect to the Collateral in Agent’s custody. Agent shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care if (i) such Property is accorded treatment substantially equal to that which Agent accords its own Property or similar Property of other Persons held by Agent or (ii) Agent takes such action with respect to the Collateral as Guarantors shall reasonably request in writing. Agent will not be deemed to have, and nothing in this Section 3.5 may be construed to deem that Agent has, failed to exercise reasonable care in the custody or preservation of Collateral in its possession merely because either (a) Agent failed to comply with any request of Guarantors or (b) Agent failed to take steps to preserve rights against any Persons in such Property. Each Guarantor agrees that Agent has no obligation to take steps to preserve rights against any prior parties.

          3.6 Verification. At any time and from time to time, Agent, in its own name or in the name of others, may periodically communicate with each Guarantor’s account debtors, customers and other obligors to verify with them, to Agent’s satisfaction, the existence, amount and terms of any sums owed by such account debtors, customers or other obligors to any Guarantor.

          3.7 Equipment. Guarantors will, on Agent’s request, deliver to Agent any and all evidences of ownership of Guarantors’ equipment, including all certificates of title and applications for title pertaining to each Guarantor’s equipment, so that Agent may cause its security interest and Lien to be noted on such certificates of title. Each Guarantor will not permit any of its equipment to become an accession to other personal property not constituting part of the Collateral.

          3.8 Control Agreement. With respect to any of the Collateral for which control of such Collateral is a method of perfection under the Uniform Commercial Code, including all of Guarantors’ rights, titles and interests in deposit accounts, investment property, electronic chattel paper and letter-of-credit rights, and without limiting the obligations of Guarantors under the provisions of Sections 3.9, 3.10, and 3.11, Guarantors will, on Agent’s request, use commercially reasonable efforts to cause to be executed, by each Person that Agent determines is appropriate, a control agreement in a form acceptable to Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith.

          3.9 Promissory Notes and Tangible Chattel Paper. If any Guarantor shall at any time hold or acquire any promissory notes or tangible chattel paper, such Guarantor shall forthwith indorse, assign and deliver the same to Agent, accompanied by such instruments of transfer or assignments duly executed in blank as Agent may from time to time specify.


          3.10. Electronic Chattel Paper and Transferable Records. If any Guarantor at any time holds or acquires an interest in any electronic chattel paper or any “transferable record,” as that term is defined in Section 201 of the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act, or in §16 of the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act as in effect in any relevant jurisdiction, Guarantors shall promptly notify Agent thereof and, at the request and option of Agent, shall take such action as Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith, may request to vest in Agent control, under §9-105 of the Uniform Commercial Code, of such electronic chattel paper or control under Section 201 of the Federal Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act or, as the case may be, §16 of the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, as so in effect in such jurisdiction, of such transferable record.

          3.11. Letter-of-Credit Rights. If any Guarantor at any time is a beneficiary under a letter of credit now or hereafter, Guarantors shall promptly notify Agent thereof and, at the request and option of Agent, Guarantors shall, pursuant to an agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith, will either, at the option of Agent: (i) arrange for the issuer and any confirmer or other nominated person of such letter of credit to consent to an assignment to Agent of the proceeds of the letter of credit or (ii) arrange for Agent to become the beneficiary of the letter of credit, with Agent agreeing, in each case, that the proceeds of the letter of credit are to be applied as provided in the Credit Agreement.

          3.12. Commercial Tort Claims. If any Guarantor shall at any time hold or acquire a commercial tort claim, Guarantors shall immediately notify Agent in a writing signed by Guarantors of the particulars thereof and grant to Agent in such writing a security interest therein and in the proceeds thereof, all upon the terms of this Agreement, with such writing to be in form and substance satisfactory to Agent, in its discretion exercised in good faith.

          (ii) Each Guarantor acknowledges that portions of the Collateral could be difficult to preserve and dispose of and be further subject to complex maintenance and management. Accordingly, Agent, in exercising its rights under this Section 8.1, shall have the widest possible latitude to preserve and protect the Collateral and Agent’s security interest in and Lien thereon. Moreover, each Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that Agent shall have no obligation to, and each Guarantor hereby waives to the fullest extent permitted by law any right that it may have to require Agent to, (a) clean up or otherwise prepare any of the Collateral for sale, (b) pursue any Person to collect any of the Secured Obligations or (c) exercise collection remedies against any Persons obligated on the Collateral. Agent’s compliance with applicable local, state or federal law requirements, in addition to those imposed by the UCC, in connection with a disposition of any or all of the Collateral will not be considered to adversely affect the commercial reasonableness of any disposition of any or all of the Collateral under the UCC.

          8.2 Notice of Disposition; Allocations. If any notice is required by law to effectuate any sale or other disposition of the Collateral, (i) Agent will give Guarantors written notice of the time and place of any public sale or of the time after which any private sale or other intended disposition thereof will be made, and at any such public or private sale, Agent may purchase all or any of the Collateral; and (ii) Agent and each Guarantor agree that such notice will not be unreasonable as to time if given in compliance with this Agreement ten days prior to any sale or other disposition. The proceeds of the sale will be applied first to all costs and expenses of such sale including Attorneys’ Fees and other costs and expenses, and second to the payment of all Secured Obligations in the manner and order provided in the Credit Agreement. Each Guarantor shall remain liable to Agent for any deficiency. Unless otherwise directed by law, Agent will return any excess to Guarantors.

          8.3 Payment of Expenses. Each Guarantor shall pay to Agent, on its demand, all out-of-pocket costs and expenses, including court costs, reasonable Attorneys’ Fees and costs of sale, incurred by Agent in exercising any of its rights or remedies hereunder, all of which constitute part of the Secured Obligations and are secured by the Loan Collateral.

9. INDEMNIFICATION. Without limiting the provisions of Section 6.15 of the Guaranty or any other provision for indemnification in any other Loan Document, each Guarantor hereby agrees to indemnify and hold each Secured Creditor and each Secured Creditor’s directors, Affiliates, and agents (for the purposes of this Section


9 each is an “Indemnified Party”) harmless from and against any and all claims, losses, obligations and liabilities arising out of or resulting from any or all of (i) this Agreement and (ii) the transactions contemplated by this Agreement (including enforcement of this Agreement), except for claims, losses or liabilities to the extent arising out of or resulting from an Indemnified Party’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. The indemnification provided for in this Section 9 is in addition to, and not in limitation of, any other indemnification or insurance provided by any Guarantor to any Secured Creditor.

10. NOTICE. Any notice, certificate, request, notification and other communication required, permitted or contemplated hereunder and directed to Guarantors must be (i) in writing, (ii) given in accordance with the Credit Agreement, and (iii) sent c/o Borrowers at Borrower’s notice address set forth in the Credit Agreement.

11. GENERAL.

          11.1 Severability. If any term of this Agreement is found invalid under Ohio law or other laws of mandatory application by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalid term will be considered excluded from this Agreement and will not invalidate the remaining terms of this Agreement.

          11.2 GOVERNING LAW. THIS AGREEMENT HAS BEEN DELIVERED AND ACCEPTED AT AND SHALL BE DEEMED TO HAVE BEEN MADE AT CINCINNATI, OHIO. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE DEEMED TO BE A CONTRACT MADE UNDER AND GOVERNED BY THE INTERNAL LAWS OF THE STATE OF OHIO (WITHOUT REGARD TO OHIO CONFLICTS OF LAW PRINCIPLES).

          11.3 WAIVER OF JURISDICTION. AS A SPECIFICALLY BARGAINED INDUCEMENT FOR THE SECURED CREDITORS TO EXTEND CREDIT TO BORROWERS, GUARANTORS AND THE SECURED CREDITORS AGREE THAT ANY ACTION, SUIT OR PROCEEDING IN RESPECT OF OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, ITS VALIDITY OR PERFORMANCE AND WITHOUT LIMITATION ON THE ABILITY OF THE SECURED CREDITORS, AND THEIR SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS, TO INITIATE AND PROSECUTE IN ANY APPLICABLE JURISDICTION ACTIONS RELATED TO THE REPAYMENT AND COLLECTION OF THE SECURED OBLIGATIONS AND THE EXERCISE OF ALL OF THE SECURED CREDITORS’ RIGHTS AGAINST ANY GUARANTOR WITH RESPECT THERETO AND ANY SECURITY OR PROPERTY OF ANY GUARANTOR, INCLUDING DISPOSITIONS OF THE COLLATERAL, SHALL BE INITIATED AND PROSECUTED AS TO ALL PARTIES AND THEIR SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS AT CINCINNATI, OHIO. EACH SECURED CREDITOR AND EACH GUARANTOR CONSENT TO AND SUBMIT TO THE EXERCISE OF JURISDICTION OVER THEIR RESPECTIVE PERSONS BY ANY COURT SITUATED AT CINCINNATI, OHIO HAVING JURISDICTION OVER THE SUBJECT MATTER, AND EACH CONSENTS THAT ALL SERVICE OF PROCESS BE MADE BY CERTIFIED MAIL DIRECTED TO GUARANTORS, C/O BORROWERS, AT BORROWERS’ ADDRESS SET FORTH IN THE CREDIT AGREEMENT AND THE SECURED CREDITORS AT THEIR ADDRESS SET FORTH IN THE CREDIT AGREEMENT OR AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED UNDER THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF OHIO. EACH GUARANTOR WAIVES ANY OBJECTION BASED ON FORUM NON CONVENIENS, AND ANY OBJECTION TO VENUE OF ANY ACTION INSTITUTED HEREUNDER, AND CONSENTS TO THE GRANTING OF SUCH LEGAL OR EQUITABLE RELIEF AS IS DEEMED APPROPRIATE BY THE COURT.

          11.4 Survival and Continuation of Representations and Warranties. All of Guarantors’ representations and warranties contained in, or incorporated by reference in, this Agreement shall be true and correct in all material respects when made and shall, for all purposes of this Agreement, be deemed to be repeated on and as of the date of Guarantors’ request for each Loan and shall be true and correct in all material respects as of each such date.

          11.5 Agent’s Additional Rights Regarding Collateral. All of the Secured Obligations shall constitute one obligation secured by all of the Collateral. In addition to Agent’s other rights and remedies under the Loan Documents, Agent may, in its discretion exercised in good faith, following the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default which has not been waived by the Secured Creditors: (i) exchange, enforce, waive or release any of the Collateral or portion thereof, (ii) apply the proceeds of the Collateral against the Secured Obligations and direct the order or manner of the liquidation thereof (including any sale or other disposition) in


accordance with the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and (iii) settle, compromise, collect or otherwise liquidate any such security in accordance with the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents without affecting or impairing its right to take any other further action with respect to any security or any part thereof.

          11.6 Application of Payments; Revival of Secured Obligations. Agent shall have the continuing right to apply or reverse and reapply any payments to any portion of the Secured Obligations. To the extent any Guarantor makes a payment or payments to any Secured Creditor or any Secured Creditor receives any payment or proceeds of the Collateral or any other security for Guarantors’ benefit, which payment(s) or proceeds or any part thereof are subsequently voided, invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party under any bankruptcy act, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause, then, to the extent of such payment(s) or proceeds received, the Secured Obligations or part thereof intended to be satisfied shall be revived and shall continue in full force and effect, as if such payment(s) or proceeds had not been received by the affected Secured Creditor.

          11.7 Additional Waivers by Guarantors. Each Guarantor waives presentment and protest of any instrument and notice thereof, and, except as expressly provided in the Loan Documents, demand, notice of default and all other notices to which Guarantors might otherwise be entitled. Guarantors shall not assert any claim against any Secured Creditor under any theory of liability for consequential, special, indirect or punitive damages.

          11.8 Equitable Relief. Each Guarantor recognizes that, in the event any Guarantor fails to perform, observe or discharge any of its obligations or liabilities under this Agreement, any remedy of law may prove to be inadequate relief to Agent; therefore, each Guarantor agrees that Agent, if Agent so requests, shall be entitled to temporary and permanent injunctive relief in any such case without the necessity of proving actual damages.

          11.9 Entire Agreement; Amendments; Counterparts; Fax Signatures. This Agreement and the other Loan Documents set forth the entire agreement of the parties with respect to subject matter of this Agreement and supersede all previous understandings, written or oral, in respect thereof. Any request from time to time by Guarantors for the Secured Creditors’ amendment, modification or waiver of any provision in this Agreement must be in writing. The terms of this Agreement may be amended, waived or modified only by an instrument in writing duly executed by Guarantors and Agent (with the consent of the Lenders as specified in Section 12.4 of the Credit Agreement). The Secured Creditors will have no obligation to provide any amendment, modification or waiver of, or under this Agreement, requested by Guarantors, and the Secured Creditors may, for any reason in their discretion exercised in good faith, elect to withhold consent to the requested amendment, modification or waiver. Any such amendment, waiver or modification shall be binding upon the Secured Creditors, each holder of the Secured Obligations, and Guarantors. Two or more duplicate originals of this Agreement may be signed by the parties, each of which shall be an original but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument. Any documents delivered by, or on behalf of, Guarantors by fax transmission or other electronic delivery of an image file reflecting the execution hereof, and, if so signed: (i) may be relied on by Agent as if the document were a manually signed original and (ii) will be binding on Guarantors for all purposes of the Loan Documents.

          11.10 Headings. Section headings in this Agreement are included for convenience of reference only and shall not relate to the interpretation or construction of this Agreement.

          11.11 Cumulative Remedies. The remedies provided in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents are cumulative and not exclusive of any remedies provided by law. Exercise of one or more remedy(ies) by Agent does not require that all or any other remedy(ies) be exercised and does not preclude later exercise of the same remedy.

          11.12 No Deemed Waiver. Failure by Agent to exercise any right, remedy or option under this Agreement or in any Loan Documents or delay by Agent in exercising the same shall not operate as a waiver by Agent of its right to exercise any such right, remedy or option.

          11.13 Recourse to Directors or Officers. The obligations of the Secured Creditors under this Agreement are solely the corporate obligations of the Secured Creditors. No recourse shall be had for any obligation or claim


arising out of or based upon this Agreement against any stockholder, employee, officer, or director of any of the Secured Creditors.

          11.14 Assignment. Agent shall have the right to assign this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Guarantors may not assign, transfer or otherwise dispose of any of their rights or obligations hereunder, by operation of law or otherwise, and any such assignment, transfer or other disposition without Agent’s written consent (with the consent of the Lenders as specified in Section 12.4 of the Credit Agreement) shall be void. All of the rights, privileges, remedies and options given to any Secured Creditor under the Loan Documents shall inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the applicable Secured Creditor, and all the terms, conditions, covenants, provisions and warranties herein shall inure to the benefit of and bind the permitted successors and assigns of Guarantors and each Secured Creditor, respectively.

          11.15 Agent. (i) As between the Lenders, the LC Issuer and Agent, (a) Agent will hold all items of the Collateral at any time received under this Agreement in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Credit Agreement and (b) by accepting the benefits of this Agreement, each Lender and the LC Issuer acknowledge and agree that (1) the obligations of Agent as holder of the Collateral and any interests therein and with respect to any disposition of any of the Collateral or any interests therein are only those obligations expressly set forth in this Agreement and the Credit Agreement and (2) this Agreement may be enforced only by the action of Agent and that no other Secured Creditor shall have any right individually to seek to enforce or to enforce this Agreement, it being understood and agreed that such rights and remedies may be exercised by Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Creditors, upon the terms of this Agreement and the Credit Agreement. (ii) As between any Guarantor and Agent, Agent shall be conclusively presumed to be acting as agent for the Lenders and the LC Issuer with full and valid authority to so act or refrain from acting.

          11.16 Conflict. If there is any conflict, ambiguity, or inconsistency, in Agent’s judgment, between the terms of this Agreement and any of the other Loan Documents, then the applicable terms and provisions, in Agent’s judgment, providing the Secured Creditors with greater rights, remedies, powers, privileges, or benefits will control.

          11.17 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. AS A SPECIFICALLY BARGAINED INDUCEMENT FOR THE SECURED CREDITORS TO EXTEND CREDIT TO GUARANTORS, EACH GUARANTOR AND EACH SECURED CREDITOR WAIVE TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY ACTION, CLAIM, SUIT OR PROCEEDING IN RESPECT OF OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE CONDUCT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN OR AMONG THE SECURED CREDITORS AND GUARANTORS.

          11.18 Joint and Several Obligations. The obligations of Guarantors under this Agreement are joint, several and primary. No Guarantor shall be or be deemed to be an accommodation party with respect to this Agreement.
