RE: ACT Teleconferencing, Inc., et al
ACT Teleconferencing (ACT) has notified Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) of events of default under the Loan and Security Agreement dated November 12, 2004 for failure to comply with the Minimum Tangible Net Worth financial covenant and failure to deliver the required financial statements and compliance certificates for January and February, 2005. SVB is willing to consider forbearing from exercising its rights and remedies under the Loan Agreement subject to the following revised terms and conditions. The purpose of this letter is to facilitate discussion and it is not to be construed to be a commitment or agreement on the part of SVB to provide the forbearance. Additionally, this proposal letter is only attended to address terms of the facility that we are considering modifying. All other terms and conditions of the Loan and Security Agreement will remain unchanged subject to approval by the Silicon Valley Bank credit committee.
|ACT Teleconferencing, Inc., ACT Teleconferencing Services, Inc., ACT Videoconferencing, Inc., ACT Proximity, Inc., and ACT Research, Inc.|

This covenant will be measured beginning with the April 30, 2005 month-to-date results. For May, the covenant measurement will include April and May results. For June, the covenant measurement will include April, May and June results.|
|At 30 day reviews beginning April 29, 2005, ACT must demonstrate progress in obtaining refinancing, raising equity or selling the company. SVB will determine compliance with this requirement in its reasonable discretion.|
