i. Will not permit any change whatsoever in the membership units of the Debtor pledged hereunder, including but not limited to, changes in ownership, splits, issuance of additional units, options or warrants, and will maintain the Business as a separate entity at all times until full and final payment of the Loan shall have been made, unless Lender waives compliance in writing:

4.2 Notwithstanding anything in this provision which may be construed to the contrary, Debtor, in the event of an involuntary bankruptcy petition against the Debtor, has the right to contest an order for relief prior to entry of or defeating the entry of same.

5.1 Upon the occurrence of an event of default under the Loan Documents, Lender may declare all obligations secured hereby immediately due and payable and shall have all the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code as adopted by the State of California. Lender may require Debtor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Lender at a place or places, to be designated by Lender, reasonably convenient to the parties.

The requirements of reasonable notice shall be met if such notice is mailed, postage prepaid, by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the address of Debtor stated in this Agreement at least five (5) days before the time of sale or disposition. Such notice shall be deemed given when mailed. Debtor agrees to pay all expenses of retaking, holding, preparing for sale, and selling of the Collateral, together with any court costs and Lender’s reasonable attorneys’ fees.

5.2 No delay or omission on the part of Lender in exercising any right hereunder shall operate as a waiver of such right or of any other right under this Agreement. No waiver by Lender of any default shall operate as a waiver of any other default or of the same default on a future occasion.

5.3 Lender may, at its option, pay any insurance premiums, taxes, assessments, levies or charges against the Collateral, and, in case of such payment, the amounts so paid immediately shall become debts due by Debtor, shall bear interest at the rate as provided in the Promissory Note in the event of default, shall be secured with respect to repayment by this Security Agreement, and may be deducted from any advancement or disbursement thereafter becoming due under the terms of the Promissory Note.
