SECTION 122:  Sale of Collateral Consisting of Securities. Obligor recognizes that Collateral Agent may be unable to effect a public sale of any securities which may constitute a portion of the Collateral by reason of certain prohibitions contained in the Securities Act of 1933 and applicable state securities laws and instead may resort to one or more private sales of such Collateral to a restricted group of purchasers who would be obliged to agree, among other things, to acquire such securities for their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale thereof.  Obligor recognizes and agrees that, because of this restriction, sales of securities may result in prices and other terms less favorable to the seller than if the disposition were made pursuant to a public sale and, notwithstanding such circumstances, agrees that any such private or limited sale or sales shall be deemed to have been made in a commercially reasonable manner.  Collateral Agent shall be under no obligation to delay a sale of any of the securities constituting part of the Collateral for the period of time necessary to permit the issuer of such securities to register them for public sale under the Securities Act of 1933 or under applicable state securities laws.
 
SECTION 123:  Collection Rights of Collateral Agent. Obligor agrees that at any time, if an Event of Default shall have occurred, Collateral Agent shall have the right to notify any account debtor (with respect to any Collateral consisting of Accounts, General Intangibles or Chattel Paper), or the person liable on any Instrument or other right or claim of Obligor to any payment which is Collateral or the issuer of any securities constituting Investment Property (with respect to any Collateral consisting of Investment Property), or the custodian of any Collateral consisting of Deposit Accounts or Electronic Chattel Paper, or the issuer of any letters of credit subject to the control of Collateral Agent, to make payment directly to Collateral Agent, if an Event o f Default shall have occurred and whether or not Obligor was theretofore making collections on such Collateral, and also to take control of any Proceeds Collateral Agent is entitled to under Section 9-315 of the UCC.  If any Collateral consists of rights or claims of Obligor to any payment, then at Collateral Agent’s request, Obligor shall promptly notify (in manner, form and substance satisfactory to Collateral Agent) all Persons obligated to Obligor under any such rights or claims of Obligor to any payment that Collateral Agent possesses a security interest in such rights or claims of Obligor to any payment and that all payments in respect of such rights or claims of Obligor to any payment are to be made directly to Collateral Agent.  Obligor shall not settle, compromise or adjust any disputed amount, or allow any credit, rebate or discount with respect to any right or claim of Obligor to any payment which constitutes Collateral.  After Collateral Agent shall have given any notice of the type specified in the first sentence of this Section 9, any and all amounts received by Obligor from the account debtor or other obligor or issuer so notified shall be promptly remitted to Collateral Agent, and until so remitted shall be segregated by Obligor and held in trust for Collateral Agent.

SECTION 124:  Additional Security. If Collateral Agent shall at any time hold security for any Obligations in addition to the Collateral, Collateral Agent may enforce the terms of this Agreement or otherwise realize upon the Collateral, at its option, either before or concurrently with the exercise of remedies as to such other security or, after a sale is made of such other security, it may apply the proceeds upon the Obligations without affecting the status of or waiving any right to exhaust all or any other security, including the Collateral, and without waiving any breach or default or any right or power whether exercised under this Agreement, contained in this Agreement, or provided for in respect of any such other security.
 
SECTION 125:  Preservation and Protection of  Security Interest; Power of Attorney.

14

 
 
133.3.           Collateral Agent may require arbitration of any Dispute(s) concerning the lawfulness, unconscionableness, propriety, or reasonableness of any exercise by Collateral Agent of its right to take or dispose of any Collateral or its exercise of any other right in connection with Collateral including, without limitation, judicial foreclosure, exercising a power of sale under a deed of trust or mortgage, obtaining or executing a writ of attachment, taking or disposing of property with or without judicial process pursuant to Article 9 of the UCC or otherwise as permitted by applicable law, notwithstanding any such exercise by Collateral Agent.
 
133.4.           Whenever an arbitration is required under subsection 19(a), the arbitrator shall be selected, except as otherwise herein provided, in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA.  A single arbitrator shall decide any claim of $100,000 or less and he or she shall be an attorney with at least five years’ experience.  Where the claim of any party exceeds $100,000, the Dispute shall be decided by a majority vote of three arbitrators, at least two of whom shall be attorneys (at least one of whom shall have not less than five years’ experience representing commercial banks).
 
133.5.           In the event of any Dispute governed by this Section 19, each of the parties shall, subject to the award of the arbitrator, pay an equal share of the arbitrator’s fees.  The arbitrator shall have the power to award recovery of all costs and fees (including attorneys’ fees, administrative fees, arbitrator’s fees, and court costs) to the prevailing party.

SECTION 135:  WAIVER OF CERTAIN OTHER RIGHTS. OBLIGOR HEREBY WAIVES THE RIGHT TO INTERPOSE ANY DEFENSE, SET-OFF, COUNTERCLAIM (EXCEPT COMPULSORY COUNTERCLAIMS) OR CROSS-CLAIM OF ANY NATURE OR DESCRIPTION, ANY OBJECTION BASED ON FORUM NON CONVENIENS OR VENUE, AND ANY CLAIM FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR SPECIAL DAMAGES.
 
SECTION 136:  Amendment and Restatement.  This Amended and Restated Security Agreement amends, restates, consolidates and replaces in its entirety and is given in substitution for but not in satisfaction of that certain Amended and Restated Continuing Security Agreement dated August 18, 2008 executed by Obligor.
