3. PURCHASE: GENERAL TERMS.

3.1 Purchases of Accounts. CLIENT shall from time to time sell, transfer and assign all of its Accounts to PURCHASER and said Accounts shall be identified by separate and subsequent written assignments on a form to be provided to CLIENT by PURCHASER. CLIENT agrees to offer and PURCHASER agrees to buy Accounts from CLIENT at a discount of three quarters of one percent (0.75%) (“Purchasing Fee”) from the face value of each Account for every thirty (30) days an Account is outstanding. The Purchasing Fee shall be calculated from the date of purchase by PURCHASER allowing for three (3) business days for collection.

3.2 Approval. PURCHASER reserves the right not to purchase an Account unless such Account is first submitted to PURCHASER by CLIENT for approval. PURCHASER is not obligated to buy any Account from CLIENT.

3.3 Sole Property. Upon the purchase of an Account by PURCHASER, the Account and all payments on said Account shall be the sole property of PURCHASER. Any interference by CLIENT with this payment may result in civil and/or criminal liability.

3.4 Advances. PURCHASER may, in its sole discretion, fund to CLIENT up to eighty five percent (85%) of the gross invoice amount of domestic Accounts (i) with respect to which less than 90 days have elapsed since the date of original invoice, (ii) but not including all Accounts owed by a Customer if the aggregate outstanding dollar amount of such Accounts not considered as eligible under clause (i) above is equal to or greater than 25%, and (iii) and not including all Accounts owed by a Customer if the amount of returns, allowances, credit losses, discounts and other offsets of such Accounts on an historic basis is greater than 4%. Invoices shall be supported by purchase orders and delivery receipts to be eligible for advances. PURCHASER will purchase Accounts on a full dominion, full notification basis and will be handled through a bank lockbox account controlled by PURCHASER. Maximum selling terms shall not exceed net sixty (60) days.

3.5 Reserve. PURCHASER may reserve and withhold an amount in a reserve account equal to Fifteen percent (15%) of the gross invoice amount of all Accounts purchased (“Reserve”). The Reserve will be deducted by PURCHASER from the Accounts at the time of purchase. Said Reserve may be held by PURCHASER and applied by PURCHASER against charge-backs or any Obligations of CLIENT to PURCHASER. In Purchaser’s sole discretion and assuming no Event of Default exists, the Reserve releases will be made available by PURCHASER to CLIENT each business day. Reserve releases are made only on Accounts that are paid by Customers or Accounts that are charged back, repurchased or otherwise settled by CLIENT in full. Reserve is not due and payable to CLIENT until any and all potential Obligations owing by CLIENT to PURCHASER or any reasonably anticipated claims are fully paid and satisfied. CLIENT grants to PURCHASER a security interest in this Reserve, which secures all Obligations. PURCHASER retains the right in its sole and absolute discretion, and in respect of which PURCHASER shall have no liability, to revise said Reserve from time to time if in PURCHASER’S judgment it is necessary to protect PURCHASER with regard to any Obligations owing by CLIENT to PURCHASER, or to protect PURCHASER against possible returns, claims or defenses of CLIENT’S Customers or any other contingencies. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, or, in the event CLIENT shall cease selling Accounts to PURCHASER, PURCHASER shall not pay the amount in the Reserve to Client until all Accounts have been collected or PURCHASER has determined, in its sole discretion, that it will make no further efforts to collect any Accounts and all Obligations due PURCHASER hereunder have been paid.

The proceeds realized from the sale of any Collateral shall be applied first to the reasonable costs, expenses and attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred by PURCHASER for collection and for acquisition, completion, protection, removal, storage, sale and delivery of the Collateral and second to Obligations owed PURCHASER by CLIENT. If any deficiency shall arise, CLIENT shall remain liable to PURCHASER therefore.
