B. The Loans are presently secured by, among other things, a certain Real Property Mortgage encumbering the land legally described on attached Exhibit A, dated as of April 29, 2011 and recorded with the Recorder of Deeds of DuPage County, Illinois on June 3, 2011 as Document No. R2011-067058 (the “Mortgage”).

C. The parties hereto now wish to amend the Mortgage as provided herein.


AGREEMENTS:

14. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined in this Amendment shall have the meaning given them in the Mortgage.

15. The Mortgage is amended as follows:

(a) All references in the Mortgage to the “Loan Instruments” or to any particular Loan Instrument, including without limitation, the “Notes” shall mean the Loan Instruments or the applicable Loan Instrument, as the case may be, as amended by (or, with respect to the Notes, amended concurrently with) the Loan Amendment.

(b) All references in the Mortgage to the “Loan Agreement” shall mean the Amended Loan Agreement.

(c) For reference purposes only, the Mortgage is amended to reflect that the final maturity date of the Loans has been extended to March 20, 2017.

(d) The Mortgage is hereby amended to reflect that, pursuant to the Amended Loan Agreement, the maximum principal balance of the Loans that is permitted to be outstanding at any time has been increased to $50,000,000. All references in the Mortgage to the amount, “$35,000,000” are hereby changed to “$50,000,000.”

16. The Mortgage is hereby amended to conform to the terms hereof. The Mortgage shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with its original terms, as amended by this Amendment. Mortgagor expressly reaffirms and ratifies its continuing obligations under the Mortgage and that the Mortgage continues as a first lien on the Mortgaged Property in favor of Agent and Mortgagor agrees that no part of the foregoing amendments or modifications shall have the effect of releasing, relieving or diminishing any obligations under the Mortgage. Nothing herein is intended to constitute a novation.

17. The validity and interpretation of this Amendment shall be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois.

18. This Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, shall be deemed to be an original, but such counterparts shall together constitute but one and the same instrument.
