All Letters of Credit issued shall be in Dollars and all Disbursements shall be made in Dollars.

(b) Lender may agree to make advances directly to Borrower or for Borrower's account during the Credit Period, it being expressly agreed that Lender has no commitment to do so. Borrower shall request each advance under the Loan by delivering to Lender a written request therefore, an Export-Related Borrowing Base Certificate, a copy of the Export Order(s) against which Borrower is requesting an advance, and such other information and documentation as Lender may require, in accordance with Section 6.10. Upon receipt of the above described information and documents by Lender, Lender shall make such advance within five (5) Business Days following Lender's determination that all conditions to the making of such advance have been satisfied. Each advance shall be conclusively deemed to have been made at the request of and for the benefit of Borrower (a) when credited to any deposit account of Borrower maintained with Lender, or (b) when advanced in accordance with the instructions of an authorized Person. Lender, at its option, may set



a cutoff time, after which all requests for advances under the Loan will be treated as having been requested on the next succeeding Business Day.

(c) Lender may agree to issue Letters of Credit on behalf of Borrower or for Borrower's account from time to time during the Credit Period, it being expressly agreed that Lender has no commitment to do so. Standby Letters of Credit may be issued for Borrower's account for use as a performance bond, which Standby Letters of Credit can be drawn upon by Buyers only if Borrower fails to perform its obligations with respect to the relevant Export Order. Each Disbursement to fund a drawing under a Standby Letter of Credit shall conclusively be deemed to have been made when advanced in accordance with a draw request or instructions of an authorized Person. Each Letter of Credit will be in form and substance satisfactory to Lender and if approved for issuance by Lender in its sole discretion, will be issued by Lender as soon as practicable following (a) Lender's receipt of a completed Letter of Credit Application, an Export-Related Borrowing Base Certificate, a copy of the Export Order with respect to which Borrower is requesting a Letter of Credit, and such other information and documentation as Lender may require, in accordance with Section 6.10; and (b) Lender's determination that all conditions to issuing such Letter of Credit have been satisfied, including but not limited to the Borrower's obligation to provide and maintain adequate collateral in the amount equivalent to twenty-five percent (25%) of the undrawn amount of each Letter of Credit issued hereunder. In no event shall (i) the expiry date of any Letter of Credit be later than twelve (12) months from the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit. Lender shall not be requested to issue during the last sixty (60) days of the Credit Period any Letter of Credit which will expire after the Stated Final Disbursement Date unless Lender agrees in writing to a renewal of the Loan, or Ex-Im Bank's prior written approval of the issuance of such Letter of Credit is obtained.

(d) The terms and conditions of each Letter of Credit Application delivered by Borrower and accepted by Lender hereunder, including without limitation terms related to reimbursement of amounts drawn and the payment of fees and interest, are incorporated herein by this reference; provided, however, that (a) no provisions subjecting Lender and Borrower to arbitration or other dispute resolution provisions contained in any Letter of Credit Application shall be incorporated into this Agreement or applicable to Letters of Credit issued pursuant to this Agreement, and (b) to the extent that there is any conflict between the terms and conditions of any Letter of Credit Application and this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall prevail, except for (i) definitions contained in any Letter of Credit Application, (ii) if there is any provision contained in any Letter of Credit Application which subjects the Letter of Credit issued pursuant thereto to the UCP, the UCP shall prevail and (iii) if there is any provision contained in any Letter of Credit Application for a Standby Letter of Credit which subjects the Standby Letter of Credit issued pursuant thereto to the ISP, the ISP shall prevail.

(f) Interest on the outstanding principal balance of the Note shall accrue and be payable as set forth in Section 2.5 below.

(g) If the Lender determines that the introduction of any Requirement of Law, or any change in any Requirement of Law, or in the interpretation or administration of any Requirement of Law, has made it unlawful, or that any central bank or other Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for the Lender to make the Disbursements and have interest accruing thereon on



the basis of the LIBOR Rate, then, on notice thereof by the Lender to the Borrower, the Disbursements shall thereafter accrue interest at the CB Floating Rate until the Bank notifies the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. If the Bank determines that for any reason adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the LIBOR Rate for any LIBOR Period, or that the LIBOR Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Bank of making or maintaining the Disbursements, (i) the Bank will promptly so notify the Borrower, and (ii) thereafter, the obligation of the Bank to make or maintain the Disbursements with interest accruing thereon on the basis of the LIBOR Rate shall be suspended until the Lender revokes such notice in writing.

Section 2.2 Credit Accommodations.

(a) The amount of the Credit Accommodations available to be made or incurred hereunder at any particular time from time to time shall be equal to the difference between (a) the lesser at such time of (i) the Maximum Amount, or (ii) the Export-Related Borrowing Base; and (b) the Credit Accommodation Amount at such time. The Export-Related Borrowing Base shall be determined in accordance with this Agreement, the Borrower Agreement, the Waiver Letter and the Export-Related Borrowing Base Certificate.

(d) If (i) any payment or prepayment of principal of any LIBOR Advance is made other than on the last day of the LIBOR Period for such LIBOR Advance or (ii) if Borrower fails to make a principal or interest payment with respect to any LIBOR Advance on the date such payment is due and payable, Borrower shall on demand pay to Lender any amounts required to compensate Lender for any additional losses, out-of-pocket costs or expenses which it may reasonably incur as a result of such payment or nonpayment, including any loss, cost or expense actually incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by Lender to fund or maintain such LIBOR Advance. A certificate of Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

Section 2.4 Reliance by Lender on Communications and Authorizations from Borrower. In making or incurring any Credit Accommodation pursuant to this Agreement and the other Financing Documents, Lender shall be authorized to rely on any Export-Related Borrowing Base Certificate, Letter of Credit Application, or other information, documentation, notice or communication which appears to have been executed and delivered by any of the authorized representatives of Borrower who are designated in the general certificate delivered by Borrower to Lender. In the event that the Person(s) authorized to execute and deliver such documents or to take action hereunder on behalf of Borrower become(s) unavailable or unable to do so, Borrower promptly shall appoint one or more successor representative(s) and shall furnish Lender with a certificate satisfactory to Lender which shall contain a copy of the resolutions or other actions taken by Borrower to authorize such appointment(s) and the specimen signature of each Person so appointed to act on behalf of Borrower pursuant to this Agreement.

Section 2.5 Interest.

(a) The outstanding principal balance of the Note shall bear interest at the option of the Borrower at either the CB Floating Rate or the LIBOR Rate, in each case as specified by Borrower to Bank in writing in form acceptable to Lender pursuant to paragraph (e) of this Section 2.5; provided



that (A) if prior to the commencement of any LIBOR Period Lender determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBOR Rate; or the Lender determines that the LIBOR Rate will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to Lender of making or maintaining any LIBOR Advance, then the entire outstanding principal balance of the Note shall accrue interest at the CB Floating Rate; and (B) the outstanding principal amount of the Note not paid when due will bear interest from its due date until paid at the Default Rate. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if at any time the rate determined to be applicable to the outstanding principal balance of the Note pursuant to the foregoing sentence (the “Contract Rate”) exceeds the Highest Lawful Rate, the actual rate of interest to accrue on such principal amount will be limited to the Highest Lawful Rate, but any subsequent reductions in the Contract Rate for any reason will not reduce the interest rate payable on such amount below the Highest Lawful Rate until the total amount of interest accrued on such principal amount equals the amount of interest which would have accrued if the Contract Rate had at all times been in effect.

(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, during the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, the Lender may, at its option, by notice to the Borrower (which notice may be revoked at the option of the Lender), declare that the entire outstanding principal balance of the Note shall bear interest at the Default Rate.

(c) CBFR Interest shall be paid on the last day of each calendar month and LIBOR Interest shall be paid on the last day of each applicable LIBOR Period; provided that (i) Default Interest shall be payable on demand, and (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of the Note, accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment.
(d) All CBFR Interest shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year) and all LIBOR Interest shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, and in each case shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed. The applicable CB Floating Rate or LIBOR Rate shall be determined by the Lender, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(e) At any time and from time to time, Borrower may notify Lender in writing in form acceptable to Lender of what portion of the outstanding principal amount of the Note Borrower elects to accrue interest at the LIBOR Rate and the first day of the LIBOR Period to apply thereto, which day shall be at least three Business Days after the date of such notice; and the remaining outstanding principal balance of the Note shall accrue interest at the CB Floating Rate; provided that (i) at no time may more than one LIBOR Period be in effect; (ii) the minimum outstanding principal amount of any LIBOR Advance shall be $100,000; and (iii) in the event Borrower fails to so notify Lender that a portion of the outstanding principal balance of the Note is to accrue interest at the LIBOR Rate, Borrower shall be deemed to have elected the CB Floating Rate to be the rate of interest applicable to the entire outstanding principal balance of the Note; and (iv) in the event Borrower fails to notify Lender at least three Business Days prior to the last day of any LIBOR Period that Borrower elects to change the outstanding principal amount of the LIBOR Advance for a new LIBOR Period, Borrower shall be deemed to have elected to continue to have the same amount continue to accrue interest at the LIBOR Rate for an additional LIBOR Period commencing on the last day of the current LIBOR Period.

ARTICLE IV SECURITY

Section 4.1 Collateral. To secure payment and performance of all Borrower's Obligations, Borrower shall grant to Lender valid, enforceable and duly perfected Liens, including the Security Interest, on all Collateral. The Liens shall be of first priority with respect to the Collateral described in Section 6(A) of the Loan Authorization Notice, and the Liens shall have the priorities set forth in Sections 6(E) and (F) of the Loan Authorization Notice with respect to the other Collateral, in each case subject only to Permitted Liens. Borrower agrees that Lender shall have in respect of all Collateral that is subject to the UCC all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC in all states in which any portion of the Collateral may be located, as well as those provided in this Agreement. In the event Lender has extended or extends a loan or other credit accommodation to Borrower in addition to the Loan and receives a Lien on any assets or property, the Lien on such assets and property shall also secure Borrower's Obligations, and Borrower agrees



to execute such documents and instruments as Lender requires to extend such security to Borrower's Obligations.

Section 4.2 Perfection of Security Interest. Borrower agrees to the filing of financing statements and the execution of other documents and to take whatever other actions are requested by Lender to perfect and continue Lender's Liens upon the Collateral. Borrower hereby appoints Lender as its irrevocable attorney-in-fact for the purpose of executing any financing statements and other documents necessary to perfect or to continue its Liens. Lender may at any time, and without further authorization from Borrower, file a copy, photograph, facsimile, or other reproduction of any financing statement for use as a financing statement. Borrower will reimburse Lender for all expenses for the perfection, termination, and the continuation of the perfection of Lender's Liens upon the Collateral. Borrower will promptly notify Lender of any change in Borrower's name including any change to the assumed business names of Borrower. Borrower also will promptly notify Lender of any change in Borrower's social security number or employer identification number. Before any cash Collateral shall be included in the Export- Related Borrowing Base, the Borrower shall cause each deposit account or other bank account in which such cash is deposited to be subject to a first priority lien in favor of Lender pursuant to an account control agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Lender. The Lender's Security Interest in any Export-Related Accounts Receivable shall be further perfected by Borrower's execution and delivery to Lender of any instruments, the giving of any notices and the taking of any additional steps that may be required under foreign law in order to ensure the effectiveness of the assignment of such Export-Related Accounts Receivable against the Buyer.

Section 4.3 Collateral Records and Reports; Field Examinations. Borrower does now, and at all times hereafter shall keep correct and accurate books and records of the Collateral, all of which books and records shall be available to Lender or Lender's representative upon demand for inspection and copying at any reasonable time. In this connection, Borrower acknowledges that Lender is required by Ex-Im Bank to perform (or contract to perform) a field examination of Borrower and the Collateral in accordance with Lender's customary procedures but in no event less than every six (6) months. Such field examination shall include without limitation an inspection and valuation of Inventory and Other Assets, a book audit of Accounts Receivable and a review of the Accounts Receivable Aging Report. Borrower further acknowledges that Lender is required by the Ex-Im Bank to perform (or contract to perform) a review of Borrower's sales records at least on a quarterly basis. For Revolving Loan Facilities, if Lender elects in its sole discretion to make Credit Accommodations based upon summaries of Export Orders, then at least once each quarter, Lender shall review a sampling selected by Lender of those Export Orders representing at least ten percent (10%) of the aggregate Dollar volume of Export Orders and ten percent (10%) of the number of Export Orders supporting Credit Accommodations made or incurred during the past quarter. Specifically with respect to Export-Related Collateral, Borrower agrees to keep and maintain such books and records as Lender may require. Borrower shall submit to Lender in writing from time to time upon Lender's request and in any event no later than thirty (30) days after the end of each calendar month (a) an Accounts Receivable Aging Report for the immediately preceding month, which report shall include the customer name, Dollar amount due and number of days outstanding for each Export-Related Account Receivable, (b) an Inventory schedule for the immediately preceding month, which schedule shall include the location of each Item of Inventory, (c) information concerning the status of completion of Export Orders, and (d) such other information, reports, contracts, invoices and other data relating to the Collateral as Lender may request.




Section 4.4 Payment under Borrower Letters of Credit. If the letter of credit payment terms for the country specified in a certain Export Order are specified in the Country Limitation Schedule with respect to such country, Borrower shall require that each commercial letter of credit issued for its benefit with respect to any Export-Related Account Receivable or Export- Related Inventory arising out such Export Order shall provide that all payments of drawings thereunder shall be paid for the account of Borrower directly to Borrower's account with Lender, or, alternatively, that payment shall be made only to Lender's account.

Section 4.5 Assignment of Foreign Credit Insurance Policy Proceeds and Buyer/Supplier Financing. Borrower shall, simultaneously with the execution of this Agreement and as and when such policies are put into effect or financing is obtained by Borrower for the benefit of any Buyer, at any time prior to the payment and performance in full of Borrower's Obligations, assign to Lender the proceeds of all foreign credit insurance policies maintained by Borrower and any financing obtained by Borrower for the benefit of any Buyer, including, without limitation, any financing the repayment of which is guaranteed or insured by Ex-Im Bank or any other expert credit agency, such assignment to provide for payment to be made directly into Borrower's account with Lender or to Lender.

Section 4.6 Loss of Collateral. Lender shall not be liable for the loss of any Collateral in its possession, nor shall such loss diminish Borrower's Obligations.

Section 4.7 Negative Pledge. Until the Borrower's Obligations hereunder have been paid in full, unless the Bank otherwise consents in writing, the Borrower agrees that it shall not create or agree to create, any Lien on the Collateral, except for Permitted Liens or Liens created for the benefit of Lender to secure the Borrower's Obligations.

Section 9.6 Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties of Borrower made herein and in the other Financing Documents and in the certificates, instruments and other documents delivered pursuant hereto or thereto shall survive the making or incurring of Credit Accommodations hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect until all of Borrower's Obligations have been paid and performed in full.




Section 9.7 Successors and Assigns. Whenever in this Agreement any of the parties hereto is referred to, such reference shall be deemed to include the successors and permitted assigns of such party; and all covenants, promises and agreements by or on behalf of Borrower which are contained in this Agreement or in the other Financing Documents shall inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of Lender and Ex-Im Bank, which is a third-party beneficiary of this Agreement and each of the other Financing Documents to which it is not a direct party. Borrower may not assign any interest that it may have under this Agreement, including, without limitation, the right to receive the benefit of the Loan to be extended hereunder, without the prior written consent of Lender and Ex-Im Bank. Any assignment made or attempted by Borrower without the prior written consent of Lender and Ex-Im Bank shall be void and of no effect. No consent by Lender and Ex-Im Bank to an assignment by Borrower shall release Borrower as the party primarily obligated and liable under the terms of this Agreement unless Borrower shall be released specifically by Lender and Ex-Im Bank in writing. No consent by Lender and Ex-Im Bank to an assignment shall be deemed to be a waiver of the requirement of prior written consent by Lender and Ex-Im Bank with respect to each and every further assignment and as a condition precedent to the effectiveness of such assignment. Lender may assign its interest in any or all of the Financing Documents or the Waiver Letter to any Person, including Ex-Im Bank, without the consent of or notice to Borrower or any other Person, upon such terms as Lender in its sole discretion deems appropriate.

Section 9.8 Payment of Fees and Expenses. Borrower shall pay all reasonable out-of- pocket expenses, including, without limitation, the fees and disbursements of legal counsel employed by Lender, incurred by Lender in connection with (a) the preparation and negotiation of this Agreement, the Waiver Letter and the other Financing Documents, (b) the making or incurring of Credit Accommodations by Lender, (c) the protection of the Collateral and any other security for the repayment of Borrower's Obligations, and (d) the enforcement and protection of the rights of Lender in connection with this Agreement, the Waiver Letter or any of the other Financing Documents. Prior to Lender's making or incurring any Credit Accommodations hereunder, Borrower shall pay to Lender, as an additional condition precedent to the making or incurring of Credit Accommodations, the Ex-Im Bank facility fee determined in accordance with the Loan Authorization Notice and all other fees and expenses due Lender. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Borrower shall pay or cause to be paid to Lender the Ex-Im Bank application fee in the amount of $100 and the Ex-Im Bank guarantee fee in the amount of One Hundred Forty Thousand and No/100 Dollars ($140,000.00), payable on the Effective Date and at any renewal hereof.
Section 9.9 Applicable Law; Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process. Except as hereinafter expressly provided, this Agreement is governed by and shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Connecticut. The Ex-Im Bank Guarantee is governed by New York law. Accordingly, notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained herein or in any of the other Financing Documents, to the extent, but only to the extent, necessary to assure full satisfaction of and compliance with all terms and conditions of Ex-Im Bank's guaranty of Borrower's Obligations under the Ex-Im Bank Guarantee and to preserve Lender's rights thereunder, this Agreement and each of the other Financing Documents shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York. Lender and Borrower hereby submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of any Connecticut state court or federal court sitting in Connecticut over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement. Final judgment in any such suit, action or proceeding brought in any such court shall be conclusive and binding upon Borrower



and may be enforced in any court to the jurisdiction of which Borrower is subject, by a suit upon the judgment.

Section 9.10 No Liability of Lender. Neither Lender nor Ex-Im Bank shall be liable for any act or omission by it pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, in the absence of fraud or gross negligence. Borrower hereby agrees that neither Lender nor Ex-Im Bank shall be chargeable for any negligence, mistake, act or omission of any accountant, examiner, agency or attorney employed by it in making examinations, investigations or collections, or otherwise in perfecting, maintaining, protecting or realizing upon any lien or Security Interest in the Collateral or any other interest in any security for Borrower's Obligations. Neither Lender nor Ex-Im Bank shall incur any liability to Borrower or to any other party in connection with the acts or omissions of Lender or Ex-Im Bank in reliance upon any certificate or other paper believed by Lender or Ex-Im Bank to be genuine or with respect to any other thing which Lender or Ex-Im Bank may do or refrain from doing, unless such act or omission amounts to fraud or gross negligence.

Section 9.11 WAIVER OF SPECIAL DAMAGES. THE BORROWER WAIVES, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, ANY RIGHT THE UNDERSIGNED MAY HAVE TO CLAIM OR RECOVER FROM THE BANK IN ANY LEGAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING ANY SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.

Section 9.12 Indemnification. Borrower agrees to protect, indemnify, defend and hold harmless Lender and Ex-Im Bank from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees AND ANY SUCH CLAIMS, DAMAGES, LOSSES, LIABILITIES, COSTS OR EXPENSES INCURRED BY REASON OF THE LENDER'S OR EX-IM BANK'S OWN NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY) whatsoever which Lender and Ex-Im Bank may, at any time, sustain or incur by reason of or in consequence of or arising out of extending the Loan to Borrower, the making or incurring of Credit Accommodations, or the issuance of a guaranty of Borrower's Obligations, as the case may be; it being the intention of the parties that this Agreement shall be construed and applied to protect, indemnify, defend and hold harmless Lender and Ex-Im Bank against any and all risks involved in the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, the Waiver Letter and the other Financing Documents, all of which risks are hereby assumed by Borrower. The provisions
of this Section shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement, the Waiver Letter, the other Financing Documents, and the payment and performance of Borrower's Obligations.

Section 9.13 Authorization for Direct Payments (ACH Debits). To effectuate any payment due under this Agreement, the Note or any other Financing Document, Borrower hereby authorizes Lender to initiate debit entries to any deposit account of Borrower maintained with Lender and to debit the same to such account. This authorization to initiate debit entries shall remain in full force and effect until Lender has received written notification of its termination in such time and in such manner as to afford Lender a reasonable opportunity to act on it. Borrower acknowledges (a) that such debit entries may cause an overdraft of any such account which may result in Lender's refusal to honor items drawn on any such account until adequate deposits are made to any such account; (b) that Lender is under no duty or obligation to initiate any debit entry for any purpose; and (c) that if a debit is not made because any such account does not have a sufficient available balance, or otherwise, the payments may be late or past due.




Section 9.14 No Partnership. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed in a manner to create any relationship among Borrower, Lender and Ex-Im Bank other than the relationship of borrower, lender and credit enhancement provider, and Borrower, Lender and Ex- Im Bank shall not be considered partners or co-venturers for any purpose on account of this Agreement.

Section 9.15 Controlling Agreement. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that (a) the Borrower Agreement contains additional representations, terms, covenants and conditions related to Borrower and the Loan, and (b) as between Lender and Borrower this Agreement and the Borrower Agreement together govern the establishment of the Loan as a Loan Facility guaranteed pursuant to the Ex-Im Bank Guarantee and the making and incurring of Credit Accommodations under the Loan. In the event any of the representations, terms, covenants or conditions contained in this Agreement conflict with those contained in the Borrower Agreement, then as between Lender and Borrower, the more stringent provisions of each with respect to Borrower shall govern and prevail.

2.10 Additional Security or Payment. (a) Borrower shall at all times ensure that the Export-Related Borrowing Base equals or exceeds the aggregate outstanding amount of



Disbursements. If informed by Lender or if Borrower otherwise has actual knowledge that the Export-Related Borrowing Base is at any time less than the aggregate outstanding amount of Disbursements, Borrower shall, within five (5) Business Days, either (i) furnish additional Collateral to Lender, in form and amount satisfactory to Lender and Ex-Im Bank or (ii) pay to Lender an amount equal to the difference between the aggregate outstanding amount of Disbursements and the Export-Related Borrowing Base.

(b) For purposes of this Agreement, in determining the Export-Related Borrowing Base there shall be deducted from the Export-Related Borrowing Base an amount equal to (i) twenty-five percent (25%) of the undrawn amount of outstanding Commercial Letters of Credit and Standby Letters of Credit and (ii) one hundred percent (100%) of the undrawn amount of
outstanding Warranty Letters of Credit less the amount of cash collateral held by Lender to secure Warranty Letters of Credit.

outstanding Commercial Letters of Credit. If informed by Lender or if Borrower otherwise has actual knowledge that the sum of the outstanding amount of Disbursements and the undrawn amount of outstanding Commercial Letters of Credit that is supported by such Inventory exceeds sixty percent (60%) of the sum of the total outstanding Disbursements and the undrawn amount of all outstanding Commercial Letters of Credit, Borrower shall, within five (5) Business Days, either (i) furnish additional non-Inventory Collateral to Lender, in form and amount satisfactory to Lender and Ex-Im Bank, or (ii) pay down the applicable portion of the outstanding Disbursements or (iii) reduce the undrawn amount of outstanding Commercial Letters of Credit such that the above described ratio is not exceeded.

(b) Borrower agrees to facilitate Lender’s conduct of field examinations at Borrower’s facilities in accordance with the time schedule and content for such examinations that Lender requests. Such field examinations shall address at a minimum: (x) the value of the Collateral against which Credit Accommodations may be provided, (y) the amount, if any, that
the aggregate outstanding amount of Disbursements exceeds the Export-Related Borrowing Base and (z) whether such Borrower is in material compliance with the terms of each of the Loan Documents. Such field examinations shall include an inspection and evaluation of the Export- Related Inventory and Export-Related Overseas Inventory, a book audit of Export-Related Accounts Receivable and Export-Related Overseas Accounts Receivable, a review of the Accounts Receivable Aging Reports and a review of Borrower’s compliance with any Special Conditions. Lenders who opt to use the Export-Related Historical Inventory Value in the
Export-Related Borrowing Base calculation shall reconcile those numbers against the calculation for the relevant time periods using the Export-Related Inventory Value. Whenever Export- Related Accounts Receivable or Export-Related Inventory derived from Indirect Exports are in the Export-Related Borrowing Base, Lender shall verify compliance with Section 2.15 herein, including taking a random sampling of ultimate foreign purchasers.

a foreign buyer to establish or expand production of a product where, as of the date of the Economic Impact Certification covering such Item: (i) the Buyer is subject to a Final Anti- Dumping (AD) or Countervailing Duty (CVD) order, or a Suspension Agreement arising from a AD or CVD investigation, and such product is substantially the same as the product that is the subject of the AD/CVD order or suspension agreement; or (ii) the Buyer is the subject of a Section 201 injury determination by the International Trade Commission (“ITC”) and such product is substantially the same as a product that is the subject of the ITC injury determination.
