(c)    Section 2.4 of the Loan Agreement is amended to read as follows:
2.4    Term Loan. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Lender, severally and not jointly, will make a term loan to Borrowers in the amount equal to such Lender’s Term Loan Commitment Percentage of $15,000,000 (the “Term Loan”). The Term Loan shall be advanced on the Amendment No. 3 Closing Date and shall be, with respect to principal, payable as follows, subject to acceleration upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default under this Agreement or termination of this Agreement: 60 consecutive monthly installments each in the amount of $250,000 beginning on the first Business Day of the first month after the Amendment No. 3 Closing Date and continuing on the first Business Day of each month thereafter followed by a final payment of all unpaid principal, accrued and unpaid interest and all unpaid fees and expenses on the last day of the Term. The Term Loan shall be evidenced by one or more secured promissory notes (collectively, the “Term Note”) in substantially the form attached as Exhibit A to Amendment No. 3.

Notwithstanding any other term or condition of this Agreement or any Other Document, after the Amendment No. 3 Conditions Precedent have been satisfied to Agent’s satisfaction, the Lenders, severally and not jointly, will advance $2,250,900 of the Term Loan to Borrowers by application of that amount to reduce the outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Advances, subject to Borrowers’ ability to reborrow Revolving Advances in accordance with the terms hereof, and the remaining $12,749,100 balance

EXHIBIT 4.7

of the Term Loan will be advanced into the Term Loan Pledge Account and will be released as follows:

(A)    If the Margined Value of all of Borrower’s Eligible Equipment and Eligible Real Property is greater than or equal to $12,749,100, then the $12,749,100 balance of the Term Loan will be disbursed to Borrowers on the date that all of the Term Loan Release Conditions are satisfied at the same time.

(B)    If the Margined Value of all of Borrower’s Eligible Equipment and Eligible Real Property is less than $12,749,100, then (x) an amount equal to the Margined Value of all of Borrowers’ Eligible Equipment and Eligible Real Property will be released to Borrowers on the date that all of the Term Loan Release Conditions are satisfied at the same time and (y) the balance remaining in the Term Loan Pledge Account (the “Remaining Balance”) will be released to Borrowers when the first of the following occurs: (a) the regularly scheduled $250,000 principal payments made by Borrowers on the Term Loan equal or exceed the Remaining Balance and if on that date all of the Term Loan Release Conditions are satisfied at the same time; or (b) the regularly scheduled $250,000 principal payments made by Borrowers on the Term Loan together with additional prepayments of principal made by Borrowers on the Term Loan (such additional prepayments are called the “Specified Term Loan Prepayments”) equal or exceed the Remaining Balance and if on that date all of the Term Loan Release Conditions are satisfied. Specified Term Loan Prepayments are applied to the outstanding principal installments of Term Loan in the inverse order of the maturities thereof. Specified Term Loan Prepayments may only be made until such time as the sum of all principal payments on the Term Loan equal or exceed the Remaining Balance. Specified Term Loan Prepayments may be made with Revolving Advances (“Specified Term Loan Prepayment Revolving Advances”) if no Event of Default exists or would result from the making of such Revolving Advance. Borrowers acknowledge and agree that if any Specified Term Loan Prepayments are made, then at the time the conditions have been satisfied to release the Remaining Balance to Borrowers, the Remaining Balance will be released to Borrowers by immediate application of the Remaining Balance to reduce the outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Advances, subject to Borrowers’ ability to reborrow Revolving Advances in accordance with the terms hereof.

Furthermore, and notwithstanding any other term or condition of this Agreement or any Other Document, including the immediately preceding sentence, (x) if an Event of Default occurs and is continuing or (y) if no amount in the Term Loan Pledge Account has been released to Borrowers in accordance with subparagraph (B) above by May 31,2014, then Agent may immediately apply all amounts in the Term Loan Pledge Account first to the

outstanding principal installments of Term Loan (in the inverse order of the maturities thereof) until it is paid in full and then to all other Obligations in any order that Agent determines in its sole discretion, subject to Borrowers’ ability to reborrow Revolving Advances in accordance with the terms hereof.
