3.11 Governmental Proceedings and Notices.  Neither Borrower nor Lessee nor the Facility is currently the subject of any proceeding by any governmental agency, and no notice of any violation has been received from a governmental agency that would, directly or indirectly, or with the passage of time:
 
(a) Have a material adverse impact on Lessee’s ability to accept and/or retain patients or result in the imposition of a fine, a sanction, a lower rate certification or a lower reimbursement rate for services rendered to eligible patients;
 
(b) Modify, limit or annul or result in the transfer, suspension, revocation or imposition of probationary use of any of the Permits; or

SEC. 1320a-7b(b)), neither Borrower nor its agent have offered or given any remuneration or thing of value to any person to encourage referral to the facility nor has Borrower or its agent solicited or received any remuneration or thing of value in exchange for Borrower’s agreement to make referrals or to purchase goods or services for the Facility.

16

 

All insurance policies shall have a term of not less than one year and shall be in the form and amount and with deductibles as, from time to time, shall be acceptable to Lender in its commercially reasonable discretion.  All such policies shall provide for loss payable solely to Lender and shall contain a standard “non-contributory mortgagee” endorsement or its equivalent relating, among other things, to recovery by Lender notwithstanding the negligent or willful acts or omissions of Borrower and notwithstanding (i) occupancy or use of the Facility for purposes more hazardous than those permitted by the terms of such policy, (ii) any foreclosure or other action taken by Lender pursuant to the Mortgage upon the occurrence of an Event of Default thereunder, or (iii) any change in title or ownership of the Facility.

All insurance policies for the above-required insurance must provide for thirty (30) days prior written notice of cancellation to Lender.
 
Policies, certificates of the same, or binders, together with evidence of the above required insurance on ACORD Form 27 or its equivalent, must be submitted to Lender prior to setting the interest rate on the Loan.
 
With respect to insurance policies which require payment of premiums annually, not less than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration dates of the insurance policies obtained pursuant to this Agreement, Borrower shall pay such amount, except to the extent Lender is escrowing sums therefor pursuant to the Loan Documents.  Not less than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration dates of the insurance policies obtained pursuant to this Agreement, originals or certified copies of renewals of such policies (or certificates evidencing such renewals) bearing notations evidencing the payment of premiums or accompanied by other evidence satisfactory to Lender of such payment, which premiums shall not be paid by Borrower through or by any financing arrangement, shall be delivered by Borrower or Lessee, as applicable, to Lender at the address set forth in Section 8.7 hereof.  Borrower shall not and shall cause Lessee to not carry separate insurance, concurrent in kind or form or contributing in the event of loss, with any insurance required under this Section 4.5 and related to the Property, Facility and/or operations of the same.  If the limits of any policy required hereunder are reduced or eliminated due to a covered loss, Borrower or Lessee, as applicable, shall pay the additional premium, if any, in order to have the original limits of insurance reinstated, or Borrower or Lessee, as applicable, shall purchase new insurance in the same type and amount that existed immediately prior to the loss.
 

 
17

 

If Borrower fails to maintain and deliver or cause Lessee to maintain and deliver to Lender the original policies or certificates of insurance required by this Agreement, Lender may, at its option, upon prior written notice to Borrower and Lessee procure such insurance and Borrower shall pay or, as the case may be, reimburse Lender for, all premiums thereon promptly, upon demand by Lender, with interest thereon at the Default Rate from the date paid by Lender to the date of repayment and such sum shall constitute a part of the Loan Obligations.
 
The insurance required by this Agreement may, at the option of Borrower, be effected by blanket and/or umbrella policies issued to Borrower, Lessee or to another Affiliate of Borrower covering the Facility and the properties of such Affiliate; provided that, in each case, the policies otherwise comply with the provisions of this Agreement and allocate to the Facility, from time to time, the coverage specified by this Agreement, without possibility of reduction or coinsurance by reason of, or damage to, any other property (real or personal) named therein.  If the insurance required by this Agreement shall be effected by any such blanket or umbrella policies, Borrower shall furnish to Lender original policies or certified copies thereof, with schedules attached thereto showing the amount of the insurance provided under such policies which is applicable to the Facility.
 
Neither Lender nor its agents or employees shall be liable for any loss or damage insured by the insurance policies required to be maintained under this Agreement; it being understood that (a) Borrower or Lessee, as applicable, shall look solely to its insurance company for the recovery of such loss or damage, (b) such insurance company shall have no rights of subrogation against Lender, its agents or employees, and (c) Borrower shall use or cause Lessee to use, as applicable, its commercially reasonable efforts to procure from such insurance company a waiver of subrogation rights against Lender.  If, however, such insurance policies do not provide for a waiver of subrogation rights against Lender (whether because such a waiver is unavailable or otherwise), then Borrower hereby agrees, to the extent permitted by law and to the extent not prohibited by such insurance policies, to waive its rights of recovery, if any, against Lender, its agents and employees, whether resulting from any damage to the Facility, any liability claim in connection with the Facility or otherwise.  If any such insurance policy shall prohibit Borrower from waiving such claims, then Borrower must obtain from such insurance company a waiver of subrogation rights against Lender.
 
Borrower appoints Lender as Borrower’s attorney-in-fact, which appointment shall be deemed irrevocable and coupled with an interest, to cause the issuance of an endorsement of any insurance policy to bring Borrower into compliance herewith and, as limited above, at Lender’s sole option, to make any claim for, receive payment for, and execute and endorse any documents, checks or other instruments in payment for loss, theft, or damage covered under any such insurance policy; provided, however, that in no event will Lender be liable for failure to collect any amounts payable under any insurance policy.
 
Subject to the terms of any forbearance letter issued by Lender in connection with the Loan, Borrower appoints Lender as Borrower’s attorney-in-fact to cause the issuance of an endorsement of any insurance policy to bring Borrower into compliance herewith and, as limited above, at Lender’s sole reasonable option, to make any claim for, receive payment for, and execute and endorse any documents, checks or other instruments in payment for loss, theft, or
 

 
18

 

damage covered under any such insurance policy; provided, however, that in no event will Lender be liable for failure to collect any amounts payable under any insurance policy.
 
4.6 Proceeds of Insurance or Condemnation.  If, after damage to or destruction of or condemnation of the Collateral (or any part thereof), the net Proceeds of insurance or condemnation (after payment of Lender’s reasonable costs and expenses in connection with the administration thereof) are:

(b) If Borrowers fail to achieve or provide evidence of achievement of the Debt Service Coverage Ratio, Borrowers may deposit with Lender, at Borrower’s option within fifteen (15) days of such failure, additional cash or other liquid collateral in an amount which, when added to the first number of the Debt Service Coverage Ratio, would have resulted in the noncomplying Debt Service Coverage Ratio having been satisfied.  If after Borrowers have deposited such additional cash or liquid collateral, Borrowers again fail to achieve or provide evidence of the achievement of the Debt Service Coverage Ratio requirement set forth above and such failure continues for two (2) consecutive quarters, Borrowers may deposit with Lender, at Borrowers’ option within fifteen (15) days of such failure, additional cash or other liquid collateral (with credit for amounts currently being held by Lender pursuant to the foregoing sentence), in an amount which, if the same had been applied on the first (1st) day of the first quarter for which such noncompliance of the Debt Service Coverage Ratio occurred to reduce the outstanding principal indebtedness of the Loans, would have resulted in the noncomplying Debt Service Coverage Ratio having been satisfied.  Any additional cash or liquid collateral deposited by a Borrower hereunder in order to achieve the required Debt Service Coverage Ratio and cure any existing default with respect thereto will be held by Lender in a standard custodial account and shall constitute additional Collateral for the Loan Obligations and an “Account” as defined in this Agreement, and, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, may be applied by Lender, in such order and manner as Lender may elect, to the reduction of the Loan Obligations.  Borrowers shall not be entitled to any interest earned on such additional Collateral.  Provided that there is no outstanding Default or Event of Default, such additional Collateral which has not been applied to the Loan Obligations will be released by Lender at such time as Borrowers provide Lender with evidence that the required Debt Service Coverage Ratio outlined above has been achieved and maintained (without regard to any cash deposited pursuant to this Section 4.14) for two (2) consecutive fiscal quarters.

4.15 Capital Expenditures.  Maintain (or cause Lessee to maintain, as the case may be) the Facility in good condition and make or cause Lessee to make minimum capital expenditures for the Facility in each fiscal year in the amount of $350 per unit (or such higher amount as may be recommended in Lender’s inspection report) or the appropriate prorated amount for any partial fiscal year (which capital expenditures may include those necessary for ordinary repairs and routine maintenance), and within forty-five (45) days of the end of such fiscal year, provide commercially reasonable evidence thereof to Lender.  In the event that Borrower or Lessee shall fail to meet such expenditure requirement, Borrower shall, upon Lender’s written request, immediately establish and maintain a capital expenditures reserve fund with Lender equal to the difference between the required amount per unit and the amount per unit actually spent by Borrower.  Borrower grants to Lender a right of setoff against all moneys in the capital expenditures reserve fund, and Borrower shall not permit any other Lien to exist upon such fund.  The proceeds of such capital expenditures reserve fund will be disbursed monthly upon Lender’s receipt of commercially reasonable evidence that Borrower has caused to be made the required capital expenditures.  Upon Borrower’s or Lessee’s failure to adequately maintain the Facility in good condition, Lender may, but shall not be obligated to, make such capital expenditures and may apply the moneys in the capital expenditures reserve fund for such purpose.  To the extent there are insufficient moneys in the capital expenditures reserve fund for such purposes, all funds advanced by Lender to make such capital expenditures shall constitute a portion of the Loan Obligations, shall be secured by the Mortgage and shall accrue interest at the Default Rate until paid.  Upon an Event of Default, Lender may apply any moneys in the capital expenditures reserve fund to the Loan Obligations, in such order and manner as Lender may elect.  For any partial fiscal year during which the Loan is outstanding, the required expenditure amount shall be prorated by multiplying the total of the required amount per unit by a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days during such year for which all or part of the Loan is outstanding and the denominator of which is the number of days in such year.  During the term of the Loan, Lender may, from time to time, engage a professional building inspector to conduct an inspection of the Facility.  If the inspector’s report indicates that repairs or replacements are necessary over and above the $350 per unit requirement in this paragraph, then Lender shall require a non-interest bearing escrow fund to ensure completion of such necessary repairs or replacements.  The amount of any repair escrow shall be 125% of the estimated cost of repairs as determined by the inspector and Lender.  Lender also shall require an agreement satisfactory to Lender which will provide for completion of the repairs and/or replacements and the attendant disbursement of the escrow funds.  All commercially reasonable fees and costs associated with the inspection, report and subsequent inspections (if required) shall be paid by Borrower.
 
4.16 Updated Appraisals.  For so long as the Loan remains outstanding, if any Event of Default shall occur hereunder, or if, in Lender’s commercially reasonable judgment, a material depreciation in the value of the Property shall have occurred, then in any such event, Lender, may cause the Property to be appraised by an appraiser selected by Lender, and in accordance with Lender’s appraisal guidelines and procedures then in effect, and Borrower agrees to cooperate in all respects with such appraisals and furnish to the appraisers all requested information regarding the Property and the Facility.  Borrower agrees to pay all reasonable costs incurred by Lender in connection with such appraisal which costs shall be secured by the Mortgage and shall accrue interest at the Default Rate until paid.
 

 
25

 

4.17 Comply with Covenants and Laws.  Comply and/or cause Lessee to comply, as applicable, in all material respects, with all applicable covenants and restrictions of record and all laws, ordinances, rules and regulations and keep and/or cause Lessee to keep, as applicable, the Facility and the Property in compliance with all applicable laws, ordinances, rules and regulations, including, without limitation, the Americans with Disabilities Act and regulations promulgated thereunder, and laws, ordinances, rules and regulations relating to zoning, health, building codes, setback requirements, and keep and/or cause Lessee to keep, as applicable, the Permits for the Facility in full force and effect.
 
4.18 Taxes and Other Charges.  Subject to Borrower’s right to contest the same as set forth in Section 9(c) of the Mortgage, pay all taxes, assessments, charges, claims for labor, supplies, rent, and other obligations which, if unpaid, might give rise to a Lien against property of Borrower, except Liens to the extent permitted by this Agreement.
 
4.19 Commitment Letter.  Provide all items and pay all amounts required by the Commitment Letter. If any term of the Commitment Letter shall conflict with the terms of this Agreement, this Agreement shall govern and control.  As to any matter contained in the Commitment Letter, and as to which no mention is made in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, the Commitment Letter shall continue to be in effect and shall survive the execution of this Agreement and all other Loan Documents.
 
4.20 Certificate.  Upon Lender’s written request, furnish Lender with a certificate stating that Borrower has complied with and is in compliance with all terms, covenants and conditions of the Loan Documents to which Borrower is a party and that there exists no Default or Event of Default or, if such is not the case, that one or more specified events have occurred, and that the representations and warranties contained herein are true and correct with the same effect as though made on the date of such certificate.
 
4.21 Notice of Fees or Penalties.  Immediately notify Lender, upon Borrower’s actual knowledge thereof, of the assessment by any state or any health or licensing agency of any fines or penalties against Borrower, Lessee, or the Facility.
 
4.22 Lease Agreement.  Emerivent Bradenton shall:
 
(a) Maintain the Lease Agreement in full force and effect and timely perform all of its obligations thereunder and not permit the termination or amendment of the Lease Agreement unless the prior written consent of Lender is first obtained (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided, however, that Lender’s prior consent shall not be required for termination of the Lease Agreement in the event of emergency situations (i.e., termination of the Facility’s license;
 
(b) In the event that proceedings are instituted to terminate the Facility’s license, immediately engage oversight management services from a management company reasonably acceptable to the Lender; and

26

 

jurisdiction over such proceedings), upon written instruction received from Lender, terminate the Lease Agreement.
 
4.23 Loan Closing Certification.  Immediately notify Lender in writing, in the event any representation or warranty contained in that certain Loan Closing Certification of even date herewith, executed by Borrower for the benefit of Lender, becomes untrue or there shall have been any material adverse change in any such representation or warranty.
 
4.24 Compliance with Anti-Terrorism, Embargo, Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Laws. Borrower shall comply with all Requirements of Law relating to money laundering, anti-terrorism, trade embargos and economic sanctions, now or hereafter in effect.  Upon Lender's request from time to time during the term of the Loan, Borrower shall certify in writing to Lender that Borrower's representations, warranties and obligations under Sections 3.32 and 3.33 and this Section 4.24 remain true and correct and have not been breached.  Borrower shall immediately notify Lender in writing if any of such representations, warranties or covenants are no longer true or have been breached or if Borrower has a reasonable basis to believe that they may no longer be true or have been breached.  In connection with such an event, Borrower shall comply with all Requirements of Law and directives of Governmental Authorities and, at Lender's request, provide to Lender copies of all notices, reports and other communications exchanged with, or received from, Governmental Authorities relating to such an event.  Borrower shall also reimburse Lender any expense incurred by Lender in evaluating the effect of such an event on the Loan and Lender's interest in the collateral for the Loan, in obtaining any necessary license from Governmental Authorities as may be necessary for Lender to enforce its rights under the Loan Documents, and in complying with all Requirements of Law applicable to Lender as the result of the existence of such an event and for any penalties or fines imposed upon Lender as a result thereof.

(g) The provisions of this Article VI shall be in addition to any and all other obligations and liabilities that Borrower may have under the applicable law or under the other Loan Documents, and each Indemnitee shall be entitled to indemnification under this Article VI without regard to whether Lender or that Indemnitee has exercised any rights against the Property and/or the Improvements or any other security, pursued any rights against any guarantor, or pursued any other rights available under the Loan Documents or applicable law.  If Borrower consists of more than one Person or entity, the obligation of those Persons or entities to indemnify the Indemnitees under this Article VI shall be joint and several.  The obligations of Borrower to indemnify the Indemnitees under this Article VI shall survive any repayment or discharge of the Loan Obligations, any foreclosure proceeding, any foreclosure sale, any delivery of any deed in lieu of foreclosure, and any release of record of the lien of the Mortgage.

38

(d) Exercise the rights and remedies of setoff and/or banker’s lien against the interest of Borrower in and to every account and other property of Borrower which is in the possession of Lender or any Person who then owns a participating interest in the Loan, to the extent of the full amount of the Loan; and/or
 
(e) Exercise its rights and remedies pursuant to any other Loan Documents.
 
ARTICLE VIII
 
MISCELLANEOUS
 
8.1 Waiver.  No remedy conferred upon, or reserved to, a party in this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy or remedies, and each and every remedy shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy given hereunder or now or hereafter existing in law or in equity. Exercise of or omission to exercise any right of a party hereto shall not affect any subsequent right of a party to exercise the same.  No course of dealing between Borrower and Lender or any delay on a party’s part in exercising any rights shall operate as a waiver of any of such party’s rights.  No waiver of any Default under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents shall extend to or shall affect any subsequent or other then existing Default or shall impair any rights, remedies or powers of either party hereto.
 
8.2 Costs and Expenses.  Each Borrower will bear all taxes, fees and expenses (including actual reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses of counsel for Lender) in connection with its Loan, the Note, the preparation of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (including any amendments hereafter made), and in connection with any modifications thereto and the recording of any of the Loan Documents.  If, at any time, a Default occurs or Lender becomes a party to any suit or proceeding in order to protect its interests or priority in any collateral for any of the Loan Obligations or its rights under this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents, or if Lender is made a party to any suit or proceeding by virtue of the Loan, this Agreement or any Collateral and as a result of any of the foregoing, the Lender employs counsel to advise or provide other representation with respect to this Agreement, or to collect the balance of the Loan Obligations, or to take any action in or with respect to any suit or proceeding relating to this Agreement, any of the other Loan Documents, any Collateral, Borrower, Guarantor or Lessee, or to protect, collect, or liquidate any of the security for the Loan Obligations, or attempt to enforce any security interest or lien granted to the Lender by any of the Loan Documents, then in any such events, all of the actual reasonable attorney’s fees arising from such services, including attorneys’ fees for preparation of litigation and in any appellate or bankruptcy
 

 
39

 

proceedings, and any reasonable expenses, costs and charges relating thereto shall constitute additional obligations of Borrower to Lender payable on demand of the Lender.  Without limiting the foregoing, Borrower has undertaken the obligation for payment of, and shall pay, all recording and filing fees, revenue or documentary stamps or taxes, intangibles taxes, and other taxes, expenses and charges payable in connection with this Agreement, any of the Loan Documents, the Loan Obligations, or the filing of any financing statements or other instruments required to effectuate the purposes of this Agreement, and should Borrower fail to do so, Borrower agrees to reimburse Lender for the amounts paid by Lender, together with penalties or interest, if any, incurred by Lender as a result of underpayment or nonpayment.  Such amounts shall constitute a portion of the Loan Obligations, shall be secured by the Mortgage and shall bear interest at the Default Rate (as defined in the Note) from the date advanced until repaid.
 
8.3 Performance of Lender.  At its option, upon Borrower’s failure to do so, Lender may make any payment or do any act on Borrower’s behalf that Borrower or others are required to do to remain in compliance with this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, and Borrower agrees to reimburse Lender, on demand, for any payment made or expense incurred by Lender pursuant to the foregoing authorization, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and until so repaid any sums advanced by Lender shall constitute a portion of the Loan Obligations, shall be secured by the Mortgage and shall bear interest at the Default Rate (as defined in the Note) from the date advanced until repaid.
 
8.4 Indemnification.  Each Borrower shall, at its sole cost and expense, protect, defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Indemnified Parties from and against any and all claims, suits, liabilities (including, without limitation, strict liabilities), actions, proceedings, obligations, debts, damages, losses, costs, expenses, diminutions in value, fines, penalties, charges, fees, expenses, judgments, awards, amounts paid in settlement, punitive damages, foreseeable and unforeseeable consequential damages, of whatever kind or nature (including but not limited to reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs of defense) imposed upon or incurred by or asserted against Lender by reason of (a) ownership of the Note, the Mortgage, the Property or any interest therein or receipt of any Rents (as defined in the Mortgage), (b) any amendment to, or restructuring of, the Loan Obligations and/or any of the Loan Documents, (c) any and all lawful action that may be taken by Lender in connection with the enforcement of the provisions of the Mortgage or the Note or any of the other Loan Documents, whether or not suit is filed in connection with same, or in connection with Borrower, Lessee, Guarantor, and/or any partner, joint venturer, member or shareholder thereof becoming a party to a voluntary or involuntary federal or state bankruptcy, insolvency or similar proceeding, (d) any accident, injury to or death of persons or loss of or damage to property occurring in, on or about the Property, the Improvements or any part thereof or on the adjoining sidewalks, curbs, adjacent property or adjacent parking areas, streets or ways, (e) any use, nonuse or condition in, on or about the Property, the Improvements or any part thereof or on the adjoining sidewalks, curbs, adjacent property or adjacent parking areas, streets or ways, (f) any failure on the part of Borrower, Lessee or Guarantor to perform or comply with any of the terms of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, (g) any claims by any broker, person or entity claiming to have participated in arranging the making of the Loan evidenced by the Note, (h) any failure of the Property to be in compliance with any applicable laws, (i) any and all claims and demands whatsoever which may be asserted against Lender by reason of any alleged obligations or undertakings on its part to perform or discharge any of the terms, covenants, or agreements

contained in the Lease Agreement or any replacement or renewal thereof or substitution therefore, except for such claims and demands that arise solely from Lender’s intentional misconduct or gross negligence, (j) performance of any labor or services or the furnishing of any materials or other property with respect to the Property, the Improvements or any part thereof, (k) the failure of any Person to file timely with the Internal Revenue Service an accurate Form 1099-b, statement for recipients of proceeds from real estate, broker and barter exchange transactions, which may be required in connection with the Mortgage, or to supply a copy thereof in a timely fashion to the recipient of the proceeds of the transaction in connection with which the Loan is made, (l) any misrepresentation made to Lender in this Agreement or in any of the other Loan Documents, (m) any tax on the making and/or recording of the Mortgage, the Note or any of the other Loan Documents, (n) the violation of any requirements of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, (o) any fines or penalties assessed or any corrective costs incurred by Lender if the Facility or any part of the Property is determined to be in violation of any covenants, restrictions of record, or any applicable laws, ordinances, rules or regulations, or (p) the enforcement by any of the Indemnified Parties of the provisions of this Section 8.4.  Any amounts payable to Lender by reason of the application of this Section 8.4 shall become immediately due and payable, and shall constitute a portion of the Loan Obligations, shall be secured by the Mortgage and shall accrue interest at the Default Rate (as defined in the Note).  The obligations and liabilities of Borrower under this Section 8.4 shall survive any termination, satisfaction, assignment, entry of a judgment of foreclosure or exercise of a power of sale or delivery of a deed in lieu of foreclosure of the Mortgage.  For purposes of this Section 8.4, the term “Indemnified Parties” means Lender and any Person who is or will have been involved in the origination of the Loan, any Person who is or will have been involved in the servicing of the Loan, any Person in whose name the encumbrance created by the Mortgage is or will have been recorded, any Person who may hold or acquire or will have held a full or partial interest in the Loan (including, without limitation, any investor in any securities backed in whole or in part by the Loan) as well as the respective directors, officers, shareholder, partners, members, employees, agents, servants, representatives, contractors, subcontractors, affiliates, subsidiaries, participants, successors and assigns of any and all of the foregoing (including, without limitation, any other Person who holds or acquires or will have held a participation or other full or partial interest in the Loan or the Property, whether during the term of the Mortgage or as a part of or following a foreclosure of the Loan and including, without limitation, any successors by merger, consolidation or acquisition of all or a substantial portion of Lender’s assets and business).
 
8.5 Headings.  The headings of the Sections of this Agreement are for convenience of reference only, are not to be considered a part hereof, and shall not limit or otherwise affect any of the terms hereof.
 
8.6 Survival of Covenants.  All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made herein and in certificates or reports delivered pursuant hereto shall be deemed to have been material and relied on by Lender, notwithstanding any investigation made by or on behalf of Lender, and shall survive the execution and delivery to Lender of the Note and this Agreement.
 
8.7 Notices, etc.  Any notice or other communication required or permitted to be given by this Agreement or the other Loan Documents or by applicable law shall be in writing
 

 
41

 

and shall be deemed received (a) on the date delivered, if sent by hand delivery (to the person or department if one is specified below) with receipt acknowledged by the recipient thereof, (b) three (3) Business Days following the date deposited in U.S. mail, certified or registered, with return receipt requested, or (c) one (1) Business Day following the date deposited with Federal Express or other national overnight carrier, and in each case addressed as follows:

Either party may change its address to another single address by notice given as herein provided, except any change of address notice must be actually received in order to be effective.
 
8.8 Benefits.  All of the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.  No Person other than Borrower or Lender shall be entitled to rely upon this Agreement or be entitled to the benefits of this Agreement.
 
8.9 Participation.  Borrower acknowledges that Lender may, at its option, sell participation interests in the Loan or to other participating banks or Lender may (but shall not be obligated to) assign its interest in the Loan to its affiliates, or to other assignees (the “Assignee”) to be included as a pool of properties to be financed in a proposed Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit (REMIC) but any such assignment to a REMIC shall require Borrower’s
 

 
42

 

consent, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.  Borrower agrees with each present and future participant in the Loan or Assignee of the Loan that if an Event of Default should occur, each present and future participant or Assignee shall have all of the rights and remedies of Lender with respect to any deposit due from Borrower.  The execution by a participant of a participation agreement with Lender, and the execution by Borrower of this Agreement, regardless of the order of execution, shall evidence an agreement between Borrower and said participant in accordance with the terms of this Section.  If the Loan is assigned to the Assignee, the Assignee will engage an underwriter (the “Underwriter”), who will be responsible for the due diligence, documentation, preparation and execution of certain documents required in connection with the offering of interests in the REMIC.  Borrower agrees that if Lender assigns its interest in the Loan to the Assignee for inclusion in the REMIC, with Borrower’s consent as required herein, Borrower agrees to provide the Assignee with such information as may be reasonably required by the Underwriter in connection therewith or by an investor in any securities backed in whole or in part by the Loan or any rating agency rating such securities.  Borrower irrevocably waives any and all right it may have under applicable law to prohibit such disclosure, including, but not limited to, any right of privacy, and consents to the disclosure of such information to the Underwriter, to potential investors in the REMIC, and to such rating agencies. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or any other Loan Document to the contrary, Borrowers shall not be required to “gross-up” payments for United States withholding taxes to any Assignee or Person treated, for United States federal income tax purposes, as the owner of the assets of an Assignee if such Assignee is a disregarded entity for United States federal income tax purposes, that is not organized under the laws of the United States of America or a state thereof (a “Non-U.S. Entity”), and such Non-U.S. Entity fails to establish an exemption from United States withholding taxes.  Lender may sell the Loan, interests in the Loan, issue securities backed by or evidencing ownership of the Loan in one or more public or private offerings and/or further tranche the Loan and/or create multiple notes at any time without Borrower’s consent.  Lender currently intends to retain the rights to service the Loan.
 
8.10 Supersedes Prior Agreements; Counterparts.  This Agreement and the instruments referred to herein supersede and incorporate all representations, promises, and statements, oral or written, made by Lender in connection with the Loan.  This Agreement may not be varied, altered, or amended except by a written instrument executed by an authorized officer of the Lender.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, shall be an original, but such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same instrument.
 
8.11 Loan Agreement Governs.  The Loan is governed by the terms and provisions set forth in this Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents and in the event of any irreconcilable conflict between the terms of the other Loan Documents and the terms of this Loan Agreement, the terms of this Loan Agreement shall control; provided, however, in the event there is any apparent conflict between any particular term or provision which appears in both this Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents and it is possible and reasonable for the terms of both this Loan Agreement and the Loan Documents to be performed or complied with then notwithstanding the foregoing both the terms of this Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be performed and complied with.
 

 
43

 

8.12 CONTROLLING LAW.  THE PARTIES HERETO AGREE THAT THE VALIDITY, INTERPRETATION, ENFORCEMENT AND EFFECT OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS AND THE PARTIES HERETO SUBMIT (AND WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO OBJECT) TO NON-EXCLUSIVE PERSONAL JURISDICTION IN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, FOR THE ENFORCEMENT OF ANY AND ALL OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE LOAN DOCUMENTS EXCEPT THAT IF ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISES UNDER THE CONSTITUTION, LAWS OR TREATIES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, OR IF THERE IS A DIVERSITY OF CITIZENSHIP BETWEEN THE PARTIES THERETO, SO THAT IT IS TO BE BROUGHT IN A UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, IT SHALL BE BROUGHT IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS OR ANY SUCCESSOR FEDERAL COURT HAVING ORIGINAL JURISDICTION.
 
8.13 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.  BORROWER AND LENDER HEREBY WAIVE ANY RIGHT THAT EITHER OR BOTH MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY ON ANY CLAIM, COUNTERCLAIM, SETOFF, DEMAND, ACTION OR CAUSE OF ACTION (A) ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE LOAN, OR (B) IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH OR PERTAINING OR RELATED TO OR INCIDENTAL TO ANY DEALINGS OF LENDER AND/OR BORROWER WITH RESPECT TO THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE EXERCISE OF EITHER PARTY’S RIGHTS AND REMEDIES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR OTHERWISE, OR THE CONDUCT OR THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES HERETO, IN ALL OF THE FOREGOING CASES WHETHER NOW EXISTING OR HEREAFTER ARISING AND WHETHER SOUNDING IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE.  BORROWER AGREES THAT LENDER MAY FILE A COPY OF THIS AGREEMENT WITH ANY COURT AS WRITTEN EVIDENCE OF THE KNOWING, VOLUNTARY, AND BARGAINED AGREEMENT OF BORROWER IRREVOCABLY TO WAIVE ITS RIGHTS TO TRIAL BY JURY AS AN INDUCEMENT TO LENDER TO MAKE THE LOAN, AND THAT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY WHATSOEVER (WHETHER OR NOT MODIFIED HEREIN) BETWEEN BORROWER AND LENDER SHALL INSTEAD BE TRIED IN A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION BY A JUDGE SITTING WITHOUT A JURY.
 
8.14 Reasonable Discretion.  As applied to this Agreement and the Loan Documents,  Lender shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable discretion or shall be deemed to have given its reasonable consent if Lender's actions are consistent with the standard of care that Lender employs in connection with its exercise of rights and remedies with other borrowers and loans of similar structure, size, complexity and number of facilities.
