8



 

All such costs, expenses or fees under this Agreement shall be added to the Obligations.

 

8.              TERMINATION. This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect until (i) all Obligations outstanding, or contracted or committed for (whether or not outstanding), shall be finally and irrevocably paid in full and (ii) all Transaction Documents have been terminated by the Bank.

If an Event of Default occurs, the Bank shall have the right to set off against the amounts owing under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents any property held in a deposit or other account or otherwise with the Bank or its Affiliates or otherwise owing by the Bank or its Affiliates in any capacity to any Borrower or any guarantor of, or endorser of any of the Transaction Documents evidencing, the Obligations. Such setoff shall be deemed to have been exercised immediately at the time the Bank or such Affiliate elect to do so.

 

10.       MISCELLANEOUS.

 

a.              Notices. Any demand or notice hereunder or under any applicable law pertaining hereto shall be in writing and duly given if delivered to Borrowers (at their address on the Bank’s records) or to the Bank (at the address on page one and separately to the Bank officer responsible for Borrowers’ relationship with the Bank). Such notice or demand shall be deemed sufficiently given for all purposes when delivered (1) by personal delivery and shall be deemed effective when delivered, or (ii) by mail or courier and shall be deemed effective three (3) business days after deposit in an official depository maintained by the United States Post Office for the collection of mail or one (1) business day after delivery to a nationally recognized overnight courier service (e.g., Federal Express). Notice by e-mail is not valid notice under this or any other agreement between Borrower and the Bank.

 

b.              Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Any financial calculation to be made, all financial statements and other financial information to be provided, and all books and records, system of accounting and reserves to be kept in connection with the provisions of this Agreement, shall be in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles consistently applied during each interval and from interval to interval; provided, however, that in the event changes in generally accepted accounting principles shall be mandated by the Financial Accounting Standards Board or any similar accounting body of comparable standing, or should be recommended by GTJ’s certified public accountants, to the extent such changes would affect any financial calculations to be made in connection herewith, such changes shall be implemented in making such calculations only from and after such date as the Borrowers and the Bank shall have amended this Agreement to the extent necessary to reflect such changes in the financial and other covenants to which such calculations relate.

 

c.               Indemnification. If after receipt of any payment of all, or any part of, the Obligations, the Bank is, for any reason, compelled to surrender such payment to any person or entity because such payment is unenforceable, void or voidable whether as a preference, an impermissible setoff, or a diversion of trust funds, or for any other reason, the Transaction Documents shall continue in full force and the Borrowers shall be jointly and severally liable, and shall jointly and severally indemnify and hold the Bank harmless for, the amount of such payment surrendered. The provisions of this Section shall be and remain effective notwithstanding any contrary action which may have been taken by the Bank in reliance upon such payment, and any such contrary action so taken shall be without prejudice to the Bank’s rights under the Transaction Documents and shall be deemed to have been conditioned upon such payment having become final and irrevocable. The provisions of this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the Transaction Documents.

 

d.              Further Assurances. From time to time, each Borrower shall take such action and execute and deliver to the Bank such additional documents, instruments, certificates, and agreements as the Bank may reasonably request to effectuate the purposes of the Transaction Documents.

 

e.               Cumulative Nature and Non-Exclusive Exercise of Rights and Remedies. All rights and remedies of the Bank pursuant to this Agreement and the Transaction Documents shall be cumulative, and no such right or remedy shall be exclusive of any other such right or remedy. In the event of any irreconcilable inconsistencies, this Agreement shall control. No single or partial exercise by the Bank of any right or remedy pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof, or any exercise of any other such right or remedy, by the Bank.

 

f.                Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement has been delivered to and accepted by the Bank and will be deemed to be made in the State of New York. Except as otherwise provided under federal law, this Agreement will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York excluding its conflict of laws rules. EACH BORROWER HEREBY IRREVOCABLY CONSENTS TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF ANY STATE OR FEDERAL COURT IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK IN NASSAU COUNTY OR SUFFOLK COUNTY AND CONSENTS THAT THE BANK MAY EFFECT ANY SERVICE OF PROCESS IN THE MANNER AND AT BORROWERS’ ADDRESS SET FORTH ABOVE FOR PROVIDING NOTICE OR DEMAND; PROVIDED THAT NOTHING CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT WILL PREVENT THE BANK FROM BRINGING ANY ACTION, ENFORCING ANY AWARD OR JUDGMENT OR EXERCISING ANY RIGHTS AGAINST ANY BORROWER INDIVIDUALLY, AGAINST ANY SECURITY OR AGAINST ANY PROPERTY OF ANY BORROWER WITHIN ANY OTHER COUNTY, STATE OR OTHER FOREIGN OR DOMESTIC JURISDICTION. Each Borrower acknowledges and agrees that the venue provided above is the most convenient forum for both the Bank and the Borrowers. Each Borrower waives any objection to venue and any objection based on a more convenient forum in any action instituted under this Agreement.

 

9



 

g.               Joint and Several; Successors and Assigns. If there is more than one Borrower, each of them shall be jointly and severally liable for all amounts, which become due, and the performance of all obligations under this Agreement, and the term “the Borrower” shall include each as well as all of them. This Agreement shall be binding upon the Borrowers and upon their heirs and legal representatives, their successors and assignees, and shall inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by, the Bank, its successors and assignees and each direct or indirect assignee or other transferee of any of the Obligations; provided, however, that this Agreement may not be assigned by the Borrower without the prior written consent of the Bank.

 

h.              Waivers; Changes in Writing. No failure or delay of the Bank in exercising any power or right hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. Each Borrower expressly disclaims any reliance on any course of dealing or usage of trade or oral representation of the Bank (including representations to make loans to the Borrowers) and agrees that none of the foregoing shall operate as a waiver of any right or remedy of the Bank. No notice to or demand on any Borrower in any case shall entitle the Borrowers to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure by any Borrower therefrom shall in any event be effective unless made specifically in writing by the Bank and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which given. No modification to any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless made in writing in an agreement signed by the Borrowers and the Bank.

 

i.                  Interpretation. Unless the context otherwise clearly requires, references to plural includes the singular and references to the singular include the plural; references to “individual” shall mean a natural person and shall include a natural person doing business under an assumed name (e.g., a “DBA”); the word “or” has the inclusive meaning represented by the phrase “and/or”; the word “including”, “includes” and “include” shall be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation”; and captions or section headings are solely for convenience and not part of the substance of this Agreement. Any representation, warranty, covenant or agreement herein shall survive execution and delivery of this Agreement and shall be deemed continuous. Each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted as consistent with existing law and shall be deemed amended to the extent necessary to comply with any conflicting law. If any provision nevertheless is held invalid, the other provisions shall remain in effect. The Borrowers agree that in any legal proceeding, a photocopy of this Agreement kept in the Bank’s course of business may be admitted into evidence as an original.

 

j.                 Participations and Assignments. The Bank reserves the right to (a) or assign all or a portion of the Loans and its commitments thereunder, with the consent, not to be unreasonably withheld, of the Borrowers unless the assignee is an affiliate of the Bank or an Event of Default has occurred and is then continuing, and (b) grant participations in the Loans and commitments thereunder to one or more financial institutions, provided, however, that no assignment shall be made or participation granted to an entity which is a competitor of any Borrower without the consent of the Borrowers, which consent may be withheld in the sole discretion of Borrowers. The Borrowers authorize Bank to disclose to any prospective assignee or participant, once approved by the Borrowers (if Borrowers’ approval is required hereunder), any and all financial information in such Bank’s possession concerning the Borrowers which has been delivered to Bank pursuant to this Agreement; provided that each such prospective participant shall execute a confidentiality agreement in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Borrowers.

 

k.              Waiver of Jury Trial. THE BORROWERS AND THE BANK HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY, AND INTENTIONALLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY THE BORROWERS AND THE BANK MAY HAVE IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING, IN LAW OR IN EQUITY, IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY TRANSACTIONS RELATED HERETO. THE BORROWERS REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE OR AGENT OF THE BANK HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT THE BANK WILL NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THIS JURY TRIAL WAIVER. THE BORROWE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE BANK HAS BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION.

 

L.             This Agreement amends and restates, in its entirety, and is given in substitution for (but not in satisfaction of) the Credit Agreement dated as of August 26, 2011 between GTJ and the Bank (as amended, the “Prior Agreement”), provided that nothing contained herein or in any Transaction Document shall limit or affect the liens and security interests heretofore granted, pledged and/or assigned to the Bank by GTJ and Farm Springs. The execution and delivery of this Agreement shall not be construed to have constituted a repayment of any principal of, or interest on, the Note delivered in connection with the Prior Agreement, as same shall be amended and restated in connection with this Agreement.

 

M.         This Agreement shall become effective upon receipt by the Bank of (a) the following, each duly executed and delivered by the Borrowers and in form and substance satisfactory to the Bank, (i) this Agreement, (ii) an amended and restated Note, (iii) an amendment to each of the Mortgage and the environmental indemnity agreement and reaffirmation of the assignment of leases and rents (each delivered in connection with the Prior Agreement), (b) an updated appraisal to be ordered by the Bank, at the expense of the Borrowers, indicating an appraised value of the Premises not less than $14,300,000, (c) an amendment fee of $18,000 and (d) such other documents and agreements that the Bank shall reasonably require.
