and

 

CKI LOCKER, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company (“Purchaser”).

 

BACKGROUND:

 

A.            Borrowers and Secured Party are parties to a Loan Agreement dated as of September 30, 2013 (as amended, supplemented, restated or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Loan Agreement”), pursuant to which Secured Party loaned money and extended credit and financial accommodations to or for the benefit of Borrowers, secured by substantially all of each Borrower’s personal property and other collateral. All capitalized terms used in this Agreement without definition shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Loan Agreement.

 

B.            Defaults and Events of Default have occurred and currently exist under the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents, on account of, without limitation, the Borrowers’ (i) violation of the financial covenant set forth in Section 6.15 of the Loan Agreement entitled “Ratio of Debt to Tangible Net Worth”, for the period ending August 31, 2014; (ii) violation of the financial covenant set forth in Section 6.17 entitled “Fixed Charge Ratio” for the period ended August 31, 2014; and (iii) violation of the financial covenant set forth in Section 6.18 entitled “Tangible Net Worth” for the period ended August 31, 2014.

 

C.            Borrowers acknowledge receipt of the Notice of Intent to Accelerate attached hereto as Exhibit A and the Notice of Acceleration and Demand for Payment from Secured Party attached hereto as Exhibit B on the dates set forth therein (collectively, the “Notices of Acceleration”). The Borrowers acknowledge that they are unable to pay the Obligations owing to Secured Party under the Loan Documents and cannot continue business operations.

 

D.            Secured Party and Purchaser have entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement, dated December 2, 2014 (as modified or amended through the date hereof, the “APA”) for the purchase by the Purchaser at a private foreclosure sale (such sale, the “Private Foreclosure Sale”) conducted under the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents and applicable law of the personal property of each Borrower that is described in the Loan Agreement (the “Personal Property Collateral”) for a purchase price of $2,281,000 subject to adjustment as therein provided. On the advice of their financial advisor, Borrowers acknowledge that the Private Foreclosure Sale of the Personal Property Collateral to Purchaser will yield the maximum price under the circumstances.

  

 
 

 

 

E.            In furtherance of the Private Foreclosure Sale, the Borrowers, Secured Party and Purchaser wish to enter into this Agreement in order to set forth other agreements of the Borrowers, Secured Party and Purchaser with respect to the existing Defaults and Events of Default under the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the Private Foreclosure Sale.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, for and in consideration of the premises and other good and valuable consideration, the Borrowers, Secured Party and Purchaser hereby agree as follows:

 

1.              Recitals. The Borrowers and Secured Party each hereby agree that the recitals set forth above are true and accurate.

 

2.              Obligations under Loan Agreement; Update to IP Security Agreement.

 

(a)     All of the Obligations described in the Loan Agreement are immediately due and payable in full and Secured Party shall have no further obligations to make any additional Loans to the Borrower thereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, and without any obligation to make any advances to Borrowers under the Loan Documents, provided that each Borrower executes this Agreement and complies with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Loan Documents, Secured Party hereby agrees to consider Borrowers’ requests for protective advances in amounts that do not exceed $250,000 during the period ending on November 30, 2014. Each such request shall be in writing and include a Borrowing Base Report in form satisfactory to Secured Party and a listing of the expenses to be paid with the proceeds of such protective advance. Secured Party may, in its sole discretion, make a protective advance to or for the benefit of Borrowers in the full amount requested, or a part thereof, but shall have no obligation or commitment to do so. Such advances will be considered part of the Obligations secured by the Personal Property Collateral.

 

(b)     Notwithstanding Section 2(a) hereof, in consideration of the execution, delivery and performance by Borrowers of their obligations under this Agreement, Secured Party hereby waives its right under the Loan Agreement to receive a Termination Fee (as that term is defined in the Loan Agreement) for prepayment of the Obligations.

 

(c)     Secured Party and Borrowers hereby agree that Schedules B, C and D to that certain Intellectual Property Security Agreement dated as of September 30, 2013 (the “IP Security Agreement”) between Borrowers and Secured Party are replaced in their entirety by the updated Schedules B, C and D attached hereto as Exhibit C (the “Updated IP Schedules”), as permitted by Section 4(a) of the IP Security Agreement. Borrowers confirm that the Updated IP Schedules are true, complete and correct, and further ratify and confirm the Secured Party’s security interest in the General Intangibles under the Loan Agreement and in the IP Collateral (as that term is defined in the IP Security Agreement), including without limitation the IP Collateral listed on the Updated IP Schedules.

4.              Surrender of Personal Property Collateral. The Borrowers acknowledge that they have no means by which to satisfy the Obligations. In light of the Defaults and Events of Default that currently exist under the Loan Documents, and in order to facilitate an orderly disposition of all of the Personal Property Collateral, the Borrower hereby surrenders possession of all of the Personal Property Collateral, and records relating thereto, and agrees that Secured Party, as a secured party, may take immediate possession or cause the Purchaser to take immediate possession of the Personal Property Collateral and records wherever the Personal Property Collateral and records are located. In furtherance of the foregoing,

 

(a)     Secured Party shall have the right to enter upon the premises of each of Borrowers’ locations listed on Exhibit D attached hereto (the “Locations”) and take possession of the Personal Property Collateral in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents and applicable law. Secured Party may immediately take all necessary precautions to secure such premises or facilities where the Personal Property Collateral is located, including taking physical possession of such premises or facility and excluding Borrowers, their agents and employers from access to such premises or facility. Secured Party may also remove the Personal Property Collateral in its sole discretion. Secured Party shall use reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Personal Property Collateral upon taking possession of the Personal Property Collateral, provided that the risk of accidental loss or damage to the Personal Property Collateral is on Borrowers to the extent of a deficiency in any effective insurance coverage. Without limiting the foregoing, Borrowers will permit Secured Party, or one of its agents, access to the Personal Property Collateral and to take all actions necessary to conduct the Private Foreclosure Sale contemplated in this Agreement.

 

(b)     Incidental with the foregoing, Secured Party also may take possession of any other property used by Borrowers in their business that also may be found in the Locations, including leased equipment identified on Exhibit E (collectively, the “Other Assets”), but Secured Party shall be a gratuitous bailee of such Other Assets and have no obligation to protect or preserve such Other Assets. Secured Party may give notice to any lessor identified on Exhibit E of the location of such Equipment, but shall not be liable to the Borrowers or any other person for the failure or delay in giving such notice.

(c)     To accomplish the surrender of the Personal Property Collateral, each Borrower hereby authorizes and directs any third party that has or may obtain possession of the Personal Property Collateral to deliver possession of the Personal Property Collateral to Secured Party or to the entity designated by Secured Party.

 

(d)     Prior to the surrender of the Personal Property Collateral to Secured Party as set forth herein, Borrowers will not damage, destroy, conceal, dispose of, or impair the value of the Personal Property Collateral. Each Borrower hereby authorizes and directs any third party that has or may obtain possession of the Personal Property Collateral to deliver possession of the Personal Property Collateral to Secured Party or to the entity designated by Secured Party.

 

(e)     Secured Party shall have the right to operate and use the Locations, including as authorized by Section 9-207(b)(4) of the Uniform Commercial Code (as enacted in the applicable jurisdictions), to continue operations at any Location related to the liquidation or collection of the Personal Property Collateral and to communicate and do business with Borrowers’ customers, both old and new, including without limitation, the disposition by rental, leasing, sale or otherwise of the Personal Property Collateral, all in its capacity as a secured creditor in possession. Secured Party shall be under no obligation to preserve rights against third parties under any instruments, chattel paper or otherwise held or owned by Borrowers.

 

(f)     If any Borrower has not previously surrendered possession of the Personal Property Collateral to Secured Party, such Borrower agrees to deliver possession of the Personal Property Collateral to the Purchaser contemporaneously with the closing of the Private Foreclosure Sale of the Personal Property Collateral, together with such documents as are reasonably requested by Secured Party or Purchaser to effectuate such surrender and delivery of possession of the Personal Property Collateral.

 

5.              Waivers and Consents by Borrowers to Exercise by Secured Party of Remedies.

 

(a)     The Borrowers agree that Secured Party may exercise, at Secured Party’s discretion, its remedies as provided in the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents and in accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code as enacted in the jurisdictions applicable to the Personal Property Collateral (the “UCC”), it being understood that the Borrower’s surrender of peaceful possession of the Personal Property Collateral of the Borrower shall not constitute a retention of collateral in satisfaction of indebtedness under Section 9-620 of the UCC or otherwise.

(b)        The Borrowers acknowledge the receipt and effectiveness of the Notices of Acceleration and unconditionally and forever waive and renounce all rights they may have to any additional notices with respect to the Secured Party’s intent to accelerate or acceleration of the maturity of the Obligations and.

 

(c)     The Borrowers unconditionally and forever waive and renounce all rights they may have to notification of sale, whether public or private, under the UCC and the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents, which waiver and renouncement is given in accordance with Section 9-624(a) of the UCC. Without limiting the foregoing, Secured Party may dispose of any Personal Property Collateral that is not sold to Purchaser or sold in prior dispositions in the ordinary course of operating the Personal Property Collateral pursuant to Section 9-610 of the Uniform Commercial Code (as enacted in the jurisdictions applicable to the Personal Property Collateral) without the need for further notice to Borrowers.

 

(d)     The Borrowers unconditionally and forever waive and renounce all rights they may have to redeem the Personal Property Collateral under Section 9-623 of the UCC.

 

(e)     In light of the anticipated cessation of the Borrower’s business, in the business judgment of the Borrowers, the Personal Property Collateral is not saleable for comparable consideration except in connection with the Private Foreclosure Sale, and the proceeds of the Private Foreclosure Sale will exceed the proceeds which would be obtained if the Personal Property Collateral were sold in a manner other than to the Purchaser. The Purchaser has indicated that it is willing to acquire the Personal Property Collateral but only if such acquisition can be consummated immediately. The Borrowers request that Secured Party sell the Personal Property Collateral to the Purchaser at the Private Foreclosure Sale pursuant to the terms of the APA. To facilitate such foreclosure sale, and to induce Secured Party to conduct the Private Foreclosure Sale, the Borrowers have executed this Agreement. This Agreement is intended by the Borrowers as a proposal to Secured Party of an agreement to determine the standards by which the fulfillment of the obligations of Secured Party to act in good faith and in a commercially reasonable manner (as specified in Sections 9-610 through 9-613 of the UCC) are to be measured, which agreement is permissible under Section 9-603 of the UCC.

 

6.              Cooperation.

 

(a)     The Borrowers agree that they will cooperate with Secured Party and the Purchaser in accomplishing the purposes set forth herein, and the Borrowers recognize and acknowledge that the presence on its premises of any of their officers or employees hereafter is solely and only for the purpose of rendering such assistance as they are able to and not for the purpose of altering or modifying in any respect Secured Party’s exclusive right to possession of the Personal Property Collateral and records being surrendered to Secured Party hereunder.

(b)     Borrowers (i) shall not object to or interfere with, or initiate any legal proceeding with respect to, Secured Party’s exercise of its rights under this Agreement or the Loan Documents to dispose of the Personal Property Collateral and (ii) acknowledge that the exercise of such rights does not constitute an election by Secured Party to retain the Personal Property Collateral in satisfaction of the Obligations of Borrowers to Secured Party.

 

(c)     Each Borrower hereby appoints Secured Party as its attorney-in-fact for the purpose of carrying out the transactions contemplated herein, including, without limitation, the transfer of titles to motor vehicles, which appointment shall be irrevocable and coupled with an interest.

Any sale of ALG after the Closing shall be conditioned upon the buyer’ thereof changing the company’s name to a name that does not include the words “American Locker.” Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that ALGI will not be in violation of this covenant merely because its shares of capital stock are traded over the counter in the OTCMKTS.
