(ii)           LIBOR Rate Loan, shall bear interest during each LIBOR Interest Period at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Adjusted LIBOR Rate for such LIBOR Interest Period plus the LIBOR Rate Margin, and be due and payable on each LIBOR Interest Payment Date and on the applicable Development Line Termination Date, with interest calculated for the actual number of days elapsed on the basis of a 360-day year, including the first date of the applicable period to, but not including, the date of repayment; and
 
(iii)           Upon the expiration of a LIBOR Interest Period with respect to any LIBOR Rate Loan, each shall automatically be continued as a LIBOR Rate Loan at the then applicable Adjusted LIBOR Rate and in an amount equal to the principal amount of the expiring LIBOR Rate Loan less any Principal Repayment Amount made by Borrowers; provided, however, that no portion of the outstanding principal amount of a LIBOR Rate Loan may be continued as a LIBOR Rate Loan when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.  If any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing (if the Lender does not otherwise elect to exercise any right to accelerate the Development Line of Credit Loan hereunder), such Loan shall automatically be continued as a Prime Rate Loan on the first day of the next Interest Period; and
 
(iv)           Prime Rate Loan, shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Prime Rate plus the Prime Rate Margin, and be due and payable on each Interest Payment Date and on the applicable Development Line Termination Date, with interest calculated for the actual number of days elapsed on the basis of a 360-day year, including the first date of the applicable period to, but not including, the date of repayment; and

5.3           Hedging Contracts.  Within one (1) month of the date hereof, the Borrowers shall enter into Hedging Contracts in form and substance satisfactory to Lender with respect to at least one half of the aggregate maximum principal amount of proceeds advanced and available to be advanced to the Borrowers under the Term Loan.
 
5.4           Excessive Interest.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any of the Notes, or any other agreement between any Borrowers and the Lender, if, at any time, the rate of interest, together with all amounts which constitute interest and which are reserved, charged or taken by the Lender as compensation for fees, services or expenses incidental to the making, negotiating or collection of the Loans evidenced hereby, shall be deemed by any competent court of law, governmental agency or tribunal to exceed the maximum rate of interest permitted to be charged by the Lender to the Borrowers under applicable law, or shall subject the Lender to penalty or give rise to avoidance of amounts due under any Note, then, during such time as such rate of interest would be deemed excessive, that portion of each sum paid attributable to that portion of such interest rate that exceeds the maximum rate of interest so permitted shall be deemed a voluntary prepayment of principal without charge to the Borrowers.  As used herein, the term "applicable law" shall mean the law in effect as of the date of this Agreement, provided however that in the event there is a change in the applicable law which results in a higher permissible rate of interest, then this Agreement shall be governed by such new law as of its effective date.

5.5           Unavailability of LIBOR Rate.  In the event that Borrowers shall have requested a LIBOR Rate Loan pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and Lender, in its sole discretion, shall have determined that U.S. dollar deposits in the relevant amount and for the relevant LIBOR Interest Period are not available to the Lender in the London interbank market; or by reason of circumstances affecting the Lender in the London interbank market, adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBOR Rate applicable to the relevant LIBOR Interest Period; or the LIBOR Rate no longer adequately and fairly reflects the Lender’s cost of funding loans; upon notice from the Lender to the Borrowers, the obligations of the Lender to make such LIBOR Rate Loan or to make or continue any loans as, or to convert any loans into, LIBOR Rate Loans of such duration shall forthwith be suspended until the Lender shall notify the Borrowers that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist.
 
5.6           LIBOR Rate Lending Unlawful.  If the Lender shall determine (which determination shall, upon notice thereof to the Borrowers be conclusive and binding on the Borrowers) that the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law, rule, regulation or guideline, (whether or not having the force of law) makes it unlawful, or any central bank or other governmental authority asserts that it is unlawful, for the Lender to make, continue or maintain any LIBOR Rate Loan as, or to convert any Loan into, a LIBOR Rate Loan of a certain duration, the obligations of the Lender to make, continue, maintain or convert into any such LIBOR Rate Loans shall, upon such determination, forthwith be suspended until the Lender shall notify the Borrowers that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist, and all LIBOR Rate Loans of such type shall automatically convert into Prime Rate Loans at the end of the then current LIBOR Interest Periods with respect thereto or sooner, if required by such law or assertion.
 
SECTION 6.          Payments.
 
6.1           Method of Payment.  Unless otherwise directed by the Lender, except as set forth below, all payments due under each Note and all payments of any other amounts due hereunder shall be made by debits by the Lender, or an agent of the Lender designated pursuant to Section 14.11 and acting on behalf of the Lender, through the Automated Clearing House system to an operating account maintained by the Lender in the name of the Borrowers which the Borrowers have designated in writing (the “Account”).  The Borrowers agree that the Account will have sufficient funds to cover such charges and that any disputes over the sufficiency of such funds will be resolved strictly between the Borrowers and the depository institution maintaining such Account.  Unless otherwise directed by the Lender, the final installment due under any Note shall be due and payable by the Borrowers in immediately available funds and shall not be made by debit through the Automated Clearing House System.  On the date hereof, the Borrowers shall execute and deliver to the Lender an Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) Authorization form in the form attached hereto as Exhibit 6.1 printed on the Borrowers’ letterhead.

6.2           Additional Costs.
 
(a)           Increased Costs.  If, on or after the date hereof, the adoption of any applicable law, rule or regulation or guideline (whether or not having the force of law), or any change therein, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by the Lender with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency:
 
(i)           shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement (including, without limitation, any such requirement imposed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System of the United States) against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, the Lender or shall impose on the Lender or on the London interbank market any other condition affecting the Loans or its obligation to make any Loan; or
 
(ii)           shall impose on Lender any other condition affecting the Loans or its obligation to make any  Loan,
 
and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to the Lender of making or maintaining the Loans, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by the Lender under this Agreement with respect thereto, by an amount reasonably deemed by the Lender to be material, then, within 30 days after demand by the Lender, the Borrowers shall pay to the Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate the Lender for such increased cost or reduction.
 
(b)           Increased Capital Costs.  If any change in, or the introduction, adoption, effectiveness, interpretation, reinterpretation or phase-in of, any law or regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request (whether or not having the force of law) of any court, central bank, regulator or other governmental authority affects or would affect the amount of capital required or expected to be maintained by the Lender, or person controlling the Lender, and the Lender determines (in its sole and absolute discretion) that the rate of return on its or such controlling person’s capital as a consequence of its commitments or the Loans made by the Lender is reduced to a level below that which the Lender or such controlling person could have achieved but for the occurrence of any such circumstance, then, in any such case upon notice from time to time by the Lender to the Borrowers, the Borrowers shall immediately pay directly to the Lender additional amounts sufficient to compensate the Lender or such controlling person for such reduction in rate of return.  A statement of the Lender as to any such additional amount or amounts (including calculations thereof in reasonable detail) shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive and binding on the Borrowers.  In determining such amount, the Lender may use any method of averaging and attribution that it (in its sole and absolute discretion) shall deem applicable.
 
 
10

 
 
(c)           Liquidity and Credit Enhancement.  If, under the terms of any agreement pursuant to which the Lender obtains liquidity commitments or credit enhancement relating to any Loan made hereunder, the Lender is required to compensate any such provider of liquidity or credit enhancement in respect of taxes, insurance, reserves, costs, expenses or capital requirements under circumstances similar to those described in this Section 6.2, then within thirty (30) days of presentation by the Lender of a statement in the relevant amount and setting forth the calculation of such amount, which statement shall be deemed true and correct absent manifest error, the Borrowers shall pay to the Lender such additional amount or amounts as may be necessary to pay such provider of liquidity or credit enhancement the amounts so due, or otherwise reimburse the Lender for any such amounts so paid by the Lender.
 
(d)           Taxes.  All payments by any Borrower of principal of, and interest on, the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any present or future income, excise, stamp or franchise taxes and other taxes, fees, duties, withholdings or other charges of any nature whatsoever imposed by any taxing authority, but excluding franchise taxes and taxes imposed on or measured by the Lender’s net income or receipts (such non-excluded items being called “Taxes”).  In the event that any withholding or deduction from any payment to be made by Borrowers hereunder is required in respect of any Taxes pursuant to any applicable law, rule or regulation, then the Borrowers will:
 
(i)           pay directly to the relevant authority the full amount required to be so withheld or deducted;
 
(ii)           promptly forward to the Lender an official receipt or other documentation satisfactory to the Lender evidencing such payment to such authority; and
 
 
11

 
 
(iii)           pay to the Lender such additional amount or amounts as is necessary to ensure that the net amount actually received by the Lender will equal the full amount the Lender would have received had no such withholding or deduction been required.
 
Moreover, if any Taxes are directly asserted against the Lender with respect to any payment received by the Lender hereunder, the Lender may pay such Taxes and the Borrowers will promptly pay such additional amount (including any penalties, interest or expenses) as is necessary in order that the net amount received by the Lender after the payment of such Taxes (including any Taxes on such additional amount) shall equal the amount the Lender would have received had not such Taxes been asserted.
 
If the Borrowers fail to pay any Taxes when due to the appropriate taxing authority or fails to remit to the Lender the required receipts or other required documentary evidence, the Borrowers shall indemnify the Lender for any incremental Taxes, interest or penalties that may become payable by the Lender as a result of any such failure
 
6.3           Voluntary Prepayments.  (a) LIBOR Rate Loans may be prepaid upon the terms and conditions set forth herein.  For LIBOR Rate Loans in connection with which Borrowers have or may incur Hedging Obligations, additional obligations may be associated with prepayment, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the applicable Hedging Contracts.   The Borrowers shall give the Lender, no later than 10:00 a.m., Boston time, at least four (4) Business Days notice of any proposed prepayment of any LIBOR Rate Loan, specifying the proposed date of payment of such LIBOR Rate Loan, and the principal amount to be paid.  Each partial prepayment of the principal amount of a LIBOR Rate Loan shall be in an integral multiple of $250,000.00 and accompanied by the payment of all charges outstanding on such LIBOR Rate Loan (including the LIBOR Breakage Fee) and of all accrued interest on the principal repaid to the date of payment.
 
(b)          Borrowers may prepay any Prime Rate Loan or LIBOR Advantage Loan, on notice to the Lender delivered not less than five (5) Business Days in advance of any such prepayment, in whole or in part, plus the sum of  all interest accrued thereon.
 
6.4           LIBOR Breakage Fee.  Upon: (i) any default by Borrowers in making any borrowing of, conversion into or continuation of any LIBOR Rate Loan following Borrowers’ delivery of a borrowing request or continuation/conversion notice hereunder or (ii) any prepayment of a LIBOR Rate Loan on any day that is not the last day of the relevant LIBOR Interest Period (regardless of the source of such prepayment and whether voluntary, by acceleration or otherwise), the Borrowers shall pay an amount (“LIBOR Breakage Fee”), as calculated by the Lender, equal to the amount of any losses, expenses and liabilities (including without limitation any loss of margin and anticipated profits) that Lender may sustain as a result of such default or payment.  Borrowers understand, agree and acknowledge that: (i) the Lender does not have any obligation to purchase, sell and/or match funds in connection with the use of the LIBOR Rate as a basis for calculating the rate of interest on a LIBOR Rate Loan, (ii) the LIBOR Rate may be used merely as a reference in determining such rate, and (iii) the Borrowers have accepted the LIBOR Rate as a reasonable and fair basis for calculating the LIBOR Breakage Fee and other funding losses incurred by the Lender.  Borrowers further agree to pay the LIBOR Breakage Fee and other funding losses, if any, whether or not the Lender elects to purchase, sell and/or match funds.
 
 
12

 
 
6.5           Application of Prepayments.  All partial prepayments shall be applied to the installments of principal due under the Notes in the inverse order of their maturity.

6.7           Up-Front Fee.  Borrowers agree to pay to the Lender, as consideration for the Lender’s commitment to make Loans, a nonrefundable commitment fee (the “Up-Front Fee”) equal to $86,500.00 payable on the Closing Date.
