Subject to the terms and conditions in this Article 2, Lakes shall make advances as needed from time to time to the Authority with respect to the Authority’s payment of Project development, construction, financing and equipping costs (collectively the “Development Financing Loan”) in an aggregate amount to be agreed to by the parties, such amount so agreed to be not less than $300,000 but not to exceed $350,000,000 (the “Development Cap”). Lakes shall have no obligation whatsoever to advance any funds under the Development Financing Loan in excess of the Development Cap. The parties agree that all sums previously advanced by a Lakes Affiliate to the Tribe plus accrued interest thereon under any contract or instrument in connection with any proposed gaming project (exclusive of any advances made for land purchase purposes associated with property listed on Exhibit B hereto) shall constitute advances and accrued interest under the Development Financing Loan, shall be credited to Lakes’ obligations hereunder and shall be subject to the terms of the Development Financing Loan as of January 17, 2006; and that as of January 16, 2006 Lakes’ Affiliates have advanced $16,922,740 with $4,469,305 in accrued interest thereon to the Tribe (as detailed on Exhibit C hereto) in connection with proposed gaming projects (exclusive of any advances made for land purchase purposes associated with property listed on Exhibit B hereto). Each of the Authority and the Tribe represents and warrants to Lakes that, in connection with the advance of such sums and in connection with other activities, the Authority, the Tribe and their respective officers, directors or controlling persons have a preexisting, personal or business relationship with Lakes and, in any event, the Authority and Tribe have the capacity to protect their own interests in connection with the Development Financing Loan and other transactions contemplated by this Agreement. The Development Financing Loan and Lakes’ obligation to advance funds to the Authority thereunder shall be subject to the following requirements:
  (a)   All advances made pursuant to the Development Financing Loan shall be evidenced by a promissory note prepared by Lakes, substantially in the form attached as Exhibit D to this Agreement (the “Note”), executed on behalf of the Authority, and dated the date hereof, to be payable from and secured by a pledge in (i) all Revenues from the Project without any cross collateralization from other projects of the Authority and without any other liability or guarantee on the part of the Authority except the security interests described herein; and (ii) the Project’s Furnishings and Equipment. Such Revenues described in the foregoing clause (i) and Furnishings and Equipment described in foregoing clause (ii) are collectively referred to herein as the “Collateral”.
 
  (b)   If the principal amount of the Note is exceeded by any pending advance on the Development Financing Loan, prior to such advance being made and prior to Lakes having any obligation to fund such advance, the Authority shall execute and deliver to Lakes an amendment to the Note, increasing the principal amount of the Note by an amount at least equal to the pending advance.

- 9 -


 

  (c)   With respect to each advance made under the Development Financing Loan, the interest rate applicable to such advance under Development Financing Loan shall be an annual rate equal to the annual interest rate charged to Lakes in obtaining its financing necessary for the advance (as reasonably determined by Lakes) plus five percent (5%), such annual rate to be fixed as of the date of such advance. Interest shall be payable solely from the Collateral and interest shall be computed for the actual number of days elapsed on the basis of a year consisting of 360 days. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, if during any period for which interest is computed hereunder, the applicable interest rate, together with all fees, charges and other payments which are treated as interest under applicable law, as provided for herein or in any other Transaction Document, would exceed the maximum rate of interest which may be charged, contracted for, reserved, received, or collected by Lakes in connection with this Agreement under applicable law (“Maximum Rate”), the Authority shall not be obligated to pay, and Lakes shall not be entitled to charge, collect, receive, reserve or take, interest in excess of the Maximum Rate, and during any such period the interest payable hereunder shall be limited to the Maximum Rate.
 
  (d)   Unless otherwise agreed by the parties in writing, principal and interest accrued on the Development Financing Loan shall become due and payable as follows:
(i) all interest accrued on advances outstanding as of the Opening Date shall be capitalized as of the Opening Date (such capitalized amount, together with interest thereon accruing at a rate determined by Section 2.1(c) as if such amount were an advance made under the Development Financing Loan on the Opening Date, herein referred to as the “Opening Date Amount”), and payment of such Opening Date Amount shall be made in monthly payments, beginning on the date occurring thirty (30) days after the Opening Date (the “Initial Payment Date”) and continuing on the same day of each calendar month thereafter until such Opening Date Amount shall have been paid in full, the amount of each such monthly payment to be determined as follows: with respect to each month in which such a monthly payment is payable, (1) the Authority shall retain the first $500,000 of that month’s Net Income from operation of the Project Facilities; (2) if in such month the Authority receives Net Income from operation of the Project Facilities in excess of $500,000, the Authority shall pay to Lakes as such monthly payment for application against the Opening Date Amount the excess of Net Income over $500,000; and (3) if in such month the Authority receives Net Income from operation of the Project Facilities in excess of $1,000,000, the Authority shall pay, for application against the Opening Date Amount in addition to the amount payable pursuant to the foregoing subclause (2), an amount equal to 50% of the Net Income it receives that month from operation of the Project Facilities in excess of $1,000,000; such payments to be made until the tenth anniversary of the Opening Date, at which time

- 10 -


 

any remaining balance of the Opening Date Amount will be due and payable to Lakes;
(ii) in addition to the payments to be made under the foregoing clause (i), monthly interest-only payments with respect to interest accrued from and after the Opening Date on the Development Financing Loan, each such monthly payment in an amount equal to all interest so accrued to the date of such payment, payable beginning on the Initial Payment Date and continuing on the same day of each calendar month thereafter until the tenth anniversary of the Opening Date; and
(iii) a principal balloon payment in the amount of all advances made by Lakes under the Development Financing Loan plus any remaining accrued interest due thereon and any remaining balance of the Opening Date Amount, such payment to be made on the tenth anniversary of the Opening Date.
      Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Development Financing Loan shall become due and owing in its entirety upon termination of this Agreement under Article 9. The parties further agree that any fees or other costs charged to Lakes in connection with obtaining its financing necessary for the Development Financing Loan shall be considered an advance and included as principal under the Development Financing Loan.
 
  (e)   The Development Financing Loan may not be prepaid other than as required by this Agreement, except that any interest accrued as of the Opening Date on the Development Financing Loan may be prepaid without penalty.
 
  (f)   No amounts shall be loaned under the Development Financing Loan except for Project Costs set forth in the Project Budget, and Lakes shall have no obligation to advance funds for such costs unless the costs constitute payments properly due within the terms and scope of Project Contractors’ contracts; upon any such payment by Lakes, an advance on the Development Financing Loan shall automatically occur.
 
  (g)   The Development Financing Loan, together with interest thereon, shall be payable from and secured by a pledge of the Collateral. To that end, the Authority and the Tribe hereby pledge and grant a security interest in all the Collateral to Lakes to secure the Authority’s and the Tribe’s obligations under this Agreement and under the Note, and further agree to enter into standard and customary dominion account agreements/security agreements, each in a form acceptable to Lakes, necessary to evidence and effectuate such liens, and authorize Lakes to file those UCC Financing Statements and similar documents and agreements as Lakes may believe appropriate to perfect such liens.

If they do not reach such solution within a period of ten (10) days, then, upon notice by a party to the other parties, all Claims shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at the time of submission; except that: (a) the question whether or not a Claim is arbitrable shall be a matter for binding arbitration by the arbitrators, such question shall not be determined by any court and, in determining any such question, all doubts shall be resolved in favor of arbitrability; and (b) discovery shall be permitted in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, subject to supervision as to scope and appropriateness by the arbitrators. Unless the parties otherwise agree to in writing, arbitration proceedings shall be held at San Diego, California.
 
  (b)   The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted before a panel of three neutral arbitrators, all of whom shall be currently licensed attorneys, actively engaged in the practice of law for at least ten (10) years, one of which shall have five (5) years of experience in federal Indian law, and one of which shall have five (5) years of experience in the gaming industry. The arbitrator selected by the claimant and the arbitrator selected by respondent shall, within ten (10) days of their appointment, select a third neutral arbitrator. In the event that they are unable to do so, the parties or their attorneys may request the American Arbitration Association to appoint the third neutral arbitrator. Prior to the commencement of hearings, each of the arbitrators appointed shall provide an oath or undertaking of impartiality. The Authority and the Tribe further agree that any arbitration proceeding held in connection with any Claim may be consolidated with any other arbitration proceeding involving Lakes and any of the Authority’s and/or the Tribe’s Affiliates.
 
  (c)   The arbitration award shall be in writing signed by each of the arbitrators, and shall state the basis for the award. The arbitration award shall be set forth in reasonable detail as to its findings of fact and law, and basis of determination of award form and amount. Except to the extent such enforcement will be inconsistent with a specific provision of this Agreement, arbitration awards made pursuant to this Article 10 shall be enforceable in federal court under Title 9 of the United States Code and any applicable tribal, federal or state law governing the enforcement of arbitration awards. In addition to any basis for appeal of an

- 28 -


 

      arbitration award stated in Title 9 of the United States Code or any applicable law governing the enforcement of arbitration awards, any party hereto may appeal an arbitration award on the basis that the arbitrators incorrectly decided a question of law in making the award, or the award was made in an arbitrary or capricious manner or in manifest disregard of the factual evidence.
 
  (d)   Each party hereto, without having to exhaust any tribal remedies first, shall have the right to seek and obtain a court order from a court having jurisdiction over the parties requiring that the circumstances specified in the order be maintained pending completion of the arbitration proceedings, to the extent permitted by applicable law.
 
  (e)   Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award punitive, exemplary or consequential damages, or any damages excluded by or in excess of any damage limitations expressed in this Agreement.
 
  (f)   The Authority and the Tribe hereby expressly and irrevocably waive, and also waive their right to assert, sovereign immunity and any and all defenses based thereon with respect to any Claims; and the Authority and the Tribe hereby consent to (i) binding arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, (ii) empowering the arbitrators to take the actions and enforce the judicial remedies described in paragraph 5 of their respective Resolution of Limited Waiver of Sovereign Immunity dated January 17, 2006 (attached hereto as Exhibit E and Exhibit F) adopted by the Authority and the Tribe in connection with approving the execution of this Agreement, and (iii) judicial proceedings in or before the United States District Court in which the Project is located, the United States Court of Appeals having jurisdiction over the applicable District Court, and the United States Supreme Court, for the purpose of compelling arbitration or enforcing any arbitration award, orders or judgment arising out of this Agreement, the Note, or related security documents and instruments. If the United States District Court determines it is without jurisdiction, the Authority and the Tribe consent to be sued in a court of competent jurisdiction and all courts to which an appeal therefrom may be available, but solely to compel, enforce, modify or vacate any arbitration award.
 
  (g)   To the extent lawful in connection with any such Claims, the Authority and the Tribe expressly waive the application of the doctrines of exhaustion of tribal remedies, abstention or comity that might otherwise require that Claims be heard first in tribal court or other tribal forums of the Tribe.
 
  (h)   The waivers by the Authority and the Tribe set forth herein only extend to claims or proceedings brought by Lakes and any award of damages against the Authority or the Tribe shall be payable solely out of the Collateral.
