Interest shall be payable monthly on the fifteenth (15th) day of each month (hereinafter referred to as the “Interest Payment Dates”) until such time as the unpaid principal balance referenced in this Note is paid in full.  Daily interest shall be computed based upon the actual days elapsed in a year of three hundred sixty (360) days.  Interest shall be compounded on the first day of each month.  If any payment on this Note becomes due and payable on a Saturday, Sunday or legal or bank holiday in the State of New York, such payment shall become due and payable on the immediately preceding day which is not a Saturday, Sunday or legal or bank holiday in the State of New York (“Business Day”).


Borrower may repay all or any portion of the amount borrowed under this Note at any time, without premium or penalty, provided that all such repayments of principal shall be accompanied by all interest accrued and unpaid to the date of repayment.


Except as may be specifically provided herein, Borrower waives presentment for payment, demand, notice of nonpayment, notice of protest and protest of this Note, and agrees to pay, as soon as incurred, all costs and expenses, including reasonable counsel fees, incidental to the collection of this Note or in any way relating to the rights of holder hereunder.  The holder hereof may release, renew or extend any of the liabilities of Borrower and may make additional advances or extensions of credit to it or grant other indulgences or extend the time for any payment of principal or interest hereunder, all from time to time, without further notice to or assent from any other party or any endorser hereof.


Terms used herein which are defined in the Agreement shall have their defined meanings when used herein.
