AGREEMENTS OF DEBTOR
 
From and after the date of this Security Agreement, and until all of the Obligations are paid in full, Debtor shall:

(b)           Debtor further agrees to take any other commercially reasonable action reasonably requested in writing by Lender if necessary to ensure the attachment, perfection and priority of, and the ability of Lender to enforce its security interest in any and all of the Collateral including, without limitation, (i) executing, delivering and, where appropriate, filing financing statements and amendments relating thereto under the UCC, to the extent, if any, that Debtor’s signature thereon is required therefor, (ii) complying with any provision of any statute, regulation or treaty of the United States as to any Collateral if compliance with such provision is a condition to attachment, perfection or priority of, or ability of Lender to enforce, its security interest in such Collateral, (iii) taking all actions required by any earlier versions of the UCC (to the extent applicable) or by other law, as applicable in any relevant UCC jurisdiction, or by other law as applicable in any foreign jurisdiction, (iv) obtaining waivers from landlords where any material portion of the tangible Collateral is located in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Lender, and (v) executing such documents and cooperating with the Lender and any third-party to allow Lender to obtain control of any Collateral consisting of deposit accounts or investment property.
 
3.3         Locations. Give Lender at least thirty (30) days prior written notice of Debtor’s intention to relocate any of the Collateral (other than Inventory in transit) or any of the records relating to the Collateral from the locations listed on Schedule 1 attached to this Security Agreement, in which event Schedule 1 shall be deemed amended to include the new location.

3.4         Insurance. Maintain insurance (including, without limitation, commercial general liability and property insurance) with respect to the Collateral consisting of tangible personal property in such amounts, against such risks, in such form and with responsible and reputable insurance companies or associations as is required by any governmental authority having jurisdiction with respect thereto or as is carried generally in accordance with sound business practice by companies in similar businesses similarly situated. If requested in writing by Lender, and if the existing third-party loss payee agrees to relinquish its position as loss payee, Debtor will obtain lender’s loss payable endorsements on applicable insurance policies in favor of Lender and will provide to Lender certificates of such insurance or copies thereof. If such request is made, and if the existing third-party loss payee agrees to relinquish its position as loss payee, Debtor shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause each insurer to agree, by endorsement on the policy or policies or certificates of insurance issued by it or by independent instrument furnished to Lender, that such insurer will give thirty (30) days written notice to Lender before such policy will be altered or canceled. No settlement of any insurance claim shall be made without Lender’s prior consent, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.

If Lender effects any insurance on behalf of Debtor, Debtor thereafter may cancel such insurance so effected after providing Lender with evidence that Debtor or another secured party having cure rights similar to those set forth in this Section 4.1 has obtained insurance as required by this Security Agreement..
 
4.2         Rights of Parties. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, in addition to all the rights and remedies provided in the Transaction Documents or in Article 9 of the UCC and any other applicable law, Lender may (but is under no obligation so to do):
 
(a)           require Debtor to assemble the Collateral at a place designated by Lender, which is reasonably convenient to the parties; and
 
(b)           take possession of all Collateral and of Debtor’s records pertaining to all Collateral that are necessary to properly administer and control the Collateral or the handling and collection of Collateral, and sell, lease or otherwise dispose of the Collateral in a commercially reasonable manner in whole or in part, at public or private sale, on or off the premises of Debtor; and

- 5 - -

 

4.4         Right to Collect Accounts. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, and without limiting Debtor’s obligations under the Transaction Documents: (a) Debtor authorizes Lender to notify any and all debtors on the Accounts to make payment directly to Lender (or to such place as Lender may direct); (b) Debtor agrees, on written notice from Lender, to deliver to Lender promptly after receipt thereof, in the form in which received (together with all necessary endorsements), all payments received by Debtor on account of any Account; and (c) Lender may, at its option, apply all such payments against the Obligations or remit all or part of such payments to Debtor.

Written notice, when required by law, sent in accordance with the provisions of Section 12.6 of the Loan Agreement and given at least ten (10) business days (counting the day of sending) before the date of a proposed disposition of the Collateral shall be reasonable notice.
 
4.6         Limitation on Duties Regarding Collateral.  The sole duty of Lender with respect to the custody, safekeeping and physical preservation of the Collateral in its possession, under Section 9-207 of the UCC or otherwise, shall be to deal with it in the same manner as Lender deals with similar property for its own account. Neither Lender nor any of its directors, officers, employees or agents, shall be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon any of the Collateral or for any delay in doing so or shall be under any obligation to sell or otherwise dispose of any Collateral upon the request of Debtor or otherwise.
 
4.7         Lock Box; Collateral Account. This Section 4.7 shall be effective only upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default. If Lender so requests in writing, Debtor will direct each of its debtors on the Accounts to make payments due under the relevant Account or chattel paper directly to a special lock box to be under the control of Lender. Debtor hereby authorizes and directs Lender to deposit into a special collateral account to be established and maintained by Lender all checks, drafts and cash payments received in said lock box. All deposits in said collateral account shall constitute proceeds of Collateral and shall not constitute payment of any Obligation until so applied. At its option, Lender may, at any time, apply finally collected funds on deposit in said collateral account to the payment of the Obligations, in the order of application set forth in Section 4.8, or permit Debtor to withdraw all or any part of the balance on deposit in said collateral account. If a collateral account is so established, Debtor agrees that it will promptly deliver to Lender, for deposit into said collateral account, all payments on Accounts and chattel paper received by it. All such payments shall be delivered to Lender in the form received (except for Debtor’s endorsement where necessary). Until so deposited, all payments on Accounts and chattel paper received by Debtor shall be held in trust by Debtor for and as the property of Lender and shall not be commingled with any funds or property of Debtor.
 
4.8         Application of Proceeds. Lender shall apply the proceeds resulting from any sale or disposition of the Collateral in the following order:
 
(a)           to the reasonable costs of any sale or other disposition;
 
(b)           to the reasonable expenses incurred by Lender in connection with any sale or other disposition, including attorneys’ fees;
 
(c)           to the payment of the Obligations then due and owing in any order selected by Lender in a commercially reasonable manner; and
 
(d)           to Debtor.
 
 
- 6 - -

 

4.9         Other Remedies. No remedy herein conferred upon Lender is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy, and each and every such remedy shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy given under this Security Agreement and the Transaction Documents now or hereafter existing at law or in equity or by statute or otherwise. No failure or delay on the part of Lender in exercising any right or remedy hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right hereunder preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or remedy.
