Further, Borrower and Guarantor hereby waive any claim, counterclaim, defense, right of setoff or other assertion against Lender or otherwise contrary to enforcement of the Loan Documents, whether known or unknown, arising prior to the Effective Date, including without limitation, the failure of Lender, if any, to require or enforce the continuing guaranty of any persons other than Guarantor who have heretofore guaranteed Borrower’s performance under the Loan Documents.

 

6.                  Authority Documents. Borrower and Guarantor hereby warrant and represent that this Agreement is duly authorized and executed pursuant to proper entity consents, that no further authorization or approval is required under the governing documents of Borrower or Guarantor, that Borrower is duly organized and in good standing under the laws of the State of Georgia, and that all governing documents and consent resolutions delivered to Lender in connection herewith are complete and accurate in all respects and may be relied upon by Lender.

Specifically but without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Borrower and Guarantor acknowledge and agree that Lender has not waived any rights it may now or hereafter have to enforce its remedies in connection with any Borrower or Guarantor default arising from the existence of delinquent taxes or liens relating to any collateral conveyed to Lender under the Security Documents.

THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH HAVE BEEN FULLY DISCUSSED BY THE PARTIES HERETO. NO PARTY HAS IN ANY WAY AGREED WITH OR REPRESENTED TO ANY OTHER PARTY THAT THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH WILL NOT BE FULLY ENFORCED IN ALL INSTANCES.
