(a)                                  Condemnation Awards.  Grantor, immediately upon obtaining knowledge of the institution of any proceedings for the condemnation of the Trust Property or any portion thereof, will notify Beneficiary of the pendency of such proceedings.  Except as set forth in the Indenture, Beneficiary may participate in any such proceedings and Grantor from time to time will deliver to Beneficiary all instruments requested by it to permit such participation.  Grantor assigns all awards and compensation to which it is entitled for any condemnation or other taking, or any purchase in lieu thereof, to Beneficiary and authorizes Beneficiary to collect and receive such awards and compensation and to give proper receipts and acquittances therefor, subject to the terms of the Indenture. Grantor hereby waives all rights to such awards and compensation described in the foregoing sentence.  Grantor, upon request by Beneficiary, shall make, execute and deliver any and all instruments requested for the purpose of confirming the assignment of the aforesaid awards and compensation to Beneficiary free and clear of any liens, charges or encumbrances of any kind or nature whatsoever.  Grantor specifically, unconditionally and irrevocably waives all rights of a property owner granted under applicable law, including NRS 37.115, as amended or recodified from time to time, which provide for an allocation of condemnation proceeds between a property owner and a lienholder, and any other law or successor statute of similar import.

Section 3.12                            Additional Lease Covenants.

 

(a)                                  Grantor shall give Beneficiary and Trustee not less than thirty (30) days prior written notice of the date on which Grantor shall apply to any court or other governmental authority for authority and permission to reject any of the Leases in the event that there shall be filed by or against Grantor any petition, action or proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code or under any other similar federal or state law now or hereafter in effect and if Grantor determines to reject any of the Leases.  Beneficiary and Trustee shall have the right, but not the obligation, to serve upon Grantor within such thirty (30) day period a notice stating that (i) Beneficiary or Trustee demands that Grantor assume and assign any of the Leases to Beneficiary or Trustee subject to and in accordance with the Bankruptcy Code and (ii) Beneficiary covenants to cure or provide reasonably adequate assurance thereof with respect to all defaults reasonably susceptible of being cured by Beneficiary or Trustee and of future performance under the applicable Leases.  If Beneficiary or Trustee serves upon Grantor the notice described above, Grantor shall not seek to reject any of the Leases and shall comply with the demand provided for in clause (i) above within fifteen (15) days after the notice shall have been given by Beneficiary and Trustee.

 

(b)                                 During the continuance of an Event of Default, Beneficiary and Trustee shall have the right, but not the obligation, (i) to perform and comply with all obligations of Grantor under the Leases without relying on any grace period provided therein, (ii) to do and take, without any obligation to do so, such action as Beneficiary or Trustee deems necessary or desirable to prevent or cure any default by Grantor under any of the Leases, including, without limitation, any act, deed, matter or thing whatsoever that Grantor may do in order to cure a default under the applicable Leases and (iii) to enter in and upon the Land or any part thereof to such extent and as often as Beneficiary or Trustee deems necessary or desirable in order to prevent or cure any default of Grantor under the Leases.  Grantor shall on demand, reimburse Beneficiary for all advances made and expenses incurred by Beneficiary in exercising the foregoing rights (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements), together with interest thereon at three percentage points above the “prime rate” announced by Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. at its principal office in San Francisco from time to time (the “Applicable Rate”) from the date that an advance is made or expense is incurred, to and including the date the same is paid and such monies so expended by Beneficiary with interest thereon shall be secured by this Deed of Trust.  Grantor shall, within five (5) days after written request is made therefor by Beneficiary or Trustee, execute and deliver to Beneficiary or to any party designated by Beneficiary or Trustee, such further instruments, agreements,

 

13



 

powers, assignments, conveyances or the like as may be reasonably necessary to complete or perfect the interest, rights or powers of Beneficiary pursuant to this paragraph or as may otherwise be required by Beneficiary or Trustee.

 

(c)                                  During the continuance of an Event of Default, in the event of any arbitration under or pursuant to the Leases in which Beneficiary elects to participate, Grantor hereby irrevocably appoints Beneficiary and Trustee as its true and lawful attorneys-in-fact (which appointment shall be deemed coupled with an interest) to exercise, during the continuance of an Event of Default, all right, title and interest of Grantor in connection with such arbitration, including, without limitation, the right to appoint arbitrators and to conduct arbitration proceedings on behalf of Grantor and Beneficiary.  All costs and expenses incurred by Beneficiary and Trustee in connection with such arbitration and the settlement thereof shall be borne solely by Grantor, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and disbursements.  Nothing contained in this paragraph shall obligate Beneficiary or Trustee to participate in any such arbitration.

Section 3.14                            FF&E Financing Arrangements.  Grantor shall comply with the terms of all FF&E Financing Arrangements.  If Grantor has acquired or hereafter acquires Operational Property or Fixtures subject to any FF&E Financing Arrangement, or becomes lessee under a lease for any of the same, the Lien of this Deed of Trust on such acquired or leased assets shall be subordinate to the Lien of such FF&E Financing Arrangement and Beneficiary, at Grantor’s cost, shall execute and deliver to Grantor such documents as Grantor may reasonably request evidencing such subordination.

Casino Hotel supplied with Tangible Personal Property, all in a manner consistent with the standards of other first class casino and hotel complexes in Laughlin, Nevada.

(e)                                  if any misstatement or misrepresentation exists now or hereafter in any warranty or representation set forth in Article 3 hereof.

Section 5.1                                   Remedies.  If an Event of Default exists, Beneficiary may, at Beneficiary’s election and by or through Trustee or otherwise, exercise any or all of the following rights, remedies and recourses:

 

(a)                                  To the extent permitted under the Indenture and in accordance with the provisions thereof, declare the Indebtedness to be immediately due and payable, without further notice, presentment, protest, notice of intent to accelerate, notice of acceleration, demand or action of any nature whatsoever (each of which hereby is expressly waived by Grantor), whereupon the same shall become immediately due and payable.

 

(b)                                 Notify all tenants of the Premises and all others obligated on leases of any part of the Premises that all rents and other sums owing on leases have been assigned to Beneficiary and are to be paid directly to Beneficiary, and to enforce payment of all obligations owing on leases, by suit, ejectment, cancellation, releasing, reletting or otherwise, whether or not Beneficiary has taken possession of the Premises, and to exercise whatever rights and remedies Beneficiary may have under any assignment of rents and leases.

 

(c)                                  As and to the extent permitted by law, enter the Trust Property, either personally or by its agents, nominees or attorneys, and take exclusive

 

16



 

possession thereof and thereupon, Beneficiary may (i) use, operate, manage, control, insure, maintain, repair, restore and otherwise deal with all and every part of the Premises and conduct business thereat; (ii) complete any construction on the Premises in such manner and form as Beneficiary deems advisable in the reasonable exercise of its judgment; (iii) exercise all rights and power of Grantor with respect to the Premises, whether in the name of Grantor, or otherwise, including, without limitation, the right to make, cancel, enforce or modify leases, obtain and evict tenants, and demand, sue for, collect and receive all earnings, revenues, rents, issues, profits and other income of the Premises and every part thereof, which rights shall not be in limitation of Beneficiary’s rights under any assignment of rents and leases securing the Indebtedness; and (iv)  apply the receipts from the Premises to the payment of the Indebtedness, after deducting therefrom all expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with the aforesaid operations and all amounts necessary to pay the taxes, assessments, insurance and other charges in connection with the Trust Property, as well as just and reasonable compensation for the services of Beneficiary, its counsel, agents and employees.

 

(d)                                 Hold, lease, develop, manage, operate or otherwise use the Trust Property upon such terms and conditions as Beneficiary may deem reasonable under the circumstances (making such repairs, alterations, additions and improvements and taking other actions, from time to time, as Beneficiary deems necessary or desirable), and apply all Rents and other amounts collected by Trustee in connection therewith in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.7 hereof.

 

(e)                                  Require Grantor to assemble any collateral under the UCC and make it available to Beneficiary, at Grantor’s sole risk and expense, at a place or places to be designated by Beneficiary, in its sole discretion.

 

(f)                                    Institute proceedings for the complete foreclosure of this Deed of Trust, either by judicial action or by power of sale, in which case the Trust Property may be sold for cash or credit in accordance with applicable law in one or more parcels as Beneficiary may determine.  Except as otherwise required by applicable law, with respect to any notices required or permitted under the UCC, Grantor agrees that ten (10) days’ prior written notice shall be deemed commercially reasonable.  At any such sale by virtue of any judicial proceedings, power of sale, or any other legal right, remedy or recourse, the title to and right of possession of any such property shall pass to the purchaser thereof, and to the fullest extent permitted by law, Grantor shall be completely and irrevocably divested of all of its right, title, interest, claim, equity, equity of redemption, and demand whatsoever, either at law or in equity, in and to the property sold and such sale shall be a perpetual bar both at law and in equity against Grantor, and against all other Persons claiming or to claim the property sold or any part thereof, by, through or under Grantor.  Beneficiary, the Indenture Trustee or any of the Holders may be a purchaser at such sale.  If Beneficiary is the highest bidder, Beneficiary may credit the portion of the purchase price that would be distributed to Beneficiary against the

 

17



 

Indebtedness in lieu of paying cash.  In the event this Deed of Trust is foreclosed by judicial action, appraisement and valuation of the Trust Property is waived. In the event of any sale made under or by virtue of this Article 5 (whether made by virtue of judicial proceedings or of a judgment or decree of foreclosure and sale) the entire Indebtedness, if not previously due and payable, immediately thereupon shall become due and payable. The failure to make any such tenants of the Premises party to any such foreclosure proceedings and to foreclose their rights will not be, nor be asserted to be by Grantor, a defense to any proceedings instituted by Beneficiary to collect the sums secured hereby.

 

(g)                                 With or without entry, to the extent permitted and pursuant to the procedures provided by applicable law, institute proceedings for the partial foreclosure of this Deed of Trust for the portion of the Indebtedness then due and payable (if Beneficiary shall have elected not to declare the entire Indebtedness to be immediately due and owing), subject to the continuing lien of this Deed of Trust for the balance of the Indebtedness not then due; or (1) as and to the extent permitted by law, sell for cash or upon credit the Trust Property or any part thereof and all estate, claim, demand, right, title and interest of Grantor therein, pursuant to power of sale or otherwise, at one or more sales, as an entity or in parcels, at such time and place, upon such terms and after such notice thereof as may be required or permitted by law, and in the event of a sale, by foreclosure or otherwise, of less than all of the Trust Property, this Deed of Trust shall continue as a lien on the remaining portion of the Trust Property; or (2) institute an action, suit or proceeding in equity for the specific performance of any covenant, condition or agreement contained herein or in any Indebtedness Document; or (3) to the extent permitted by applicable law, recover judgment on the Indenture either before, during or after any proceedings for the enforcement of this Deed of Trust.

 

(h)                                 Make application to a court of competent jurisdiction for, and obtain from such court as a matter of strict right and without notice to Grantor or regard to the adequacy of the Trust Property for the repayment of the Indebtedness, the appointment of a receiver of the Trust Property, and Grantor irrevocably consents to such appointment.  Any such receiver shall have all the usual powers and duties of receivers in similar cases, including the full power to rent, maintain and otherwise operate the Trust Property upon such terms as may be approved by the court, and shall apply such Rents in accordance with the provisions of Section 5.7 hereof.  Beneficiary may request, in connection with any foreclosure proceeding hereunder, that the Nevada Gaming Commission petition a court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a supervisor to conduct the normal gaming activities on the Premises following such foreclosure proceeding.

 

(i)                                     Exercise all other rights, remedies and recourses granted under the Indebtedness Documents or otherwise available at law or in equity.

 

18



 

Section 5.2                                   Separate Sales.  The Trust Property may be sold in one or more parcels and in such manner and order as Trustee in its sole discretion may elect; the right of sale arising out of any Event of Default shall not be exhausted by any one or more sales.

 

Section 5.3                                   Remedies Cumulative, Concurrent and Nonexclusive.  Beneficiary and Trustee shall have all rights, remedies and recourses granted in the Indebtedness Documents and available at law or equity (including the UCC), which rights (a) shall be cumulated and concurrent, (b) may be pursued separately, successively or concurrently against Grantor or others obligated under the Indebtedness Documents, or against the Trust Property, or against any one or more of them, at the sole discretion of Beneficiary or Trustee, as the case may be, (c) may be exercised as often as occasion therefor shall arise, and the exercise or failure to exercise any of them shall not be construed as a waiver or release thereof or of any other right, remedy or recourse, and (d) are intended to be, and shall be, nonexclusive.  No action by Beneficiary or Trustee in the enforcement of any rights, remedies or recourses under the Indebtedness Documents or otherwise at law or equity shall be deemed to cure any Event of Default.

 

Section 5.4                                   Release of and Resort to Collateral.  Beneficiary may release, regardless of consideration and without the necessity for any notice to or consent by the holder of any subordinate lien on the Trust Property, any part of the Trust Property without, as to the remainder, in any way impairing, affecting, subordinating or releasing the lien or security interest created in or evidenced by the Indebtedness Documents or their status as a lien and security interest in and to the Trust Property second in priority to the Superior Deed of Trust only.  For payment of the Indebtedness, Beneficiary may resort to any other security in such order and manner as Beneficiary may elect.

 

Section 5.5                                   Waiver of Redemption, Notice and Marshalling of Assets.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, Grantor hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waives and releases (a) all benefit that might accrue to Grantor by virtue of any present or future statute of limitations or law or judicial decision exempting the Trust Property from attachment, levy or sale on execution or providing for any stay of execution, exemption from civil process, redemption or extension of time for payment, (b) all notices of any Event of Default or of any election by Trustee or Beneficiary to exercise or the actual exercise of any right, remedy or recourse provided for under the Indebtedness Documents, and (c) any right to a marshalling of assets, a sale in inverse order of alienation or to require sale of assets in a particular order, including rights provided by NRS 100.040 and 100.050, as such sections may be amended or recodified from time to time.  Each successor and assign of Grantor, including any holder of a lien or security interest subordinate to this Deed of Trust, by acceptance of its interest or lien or security interest, agrees that it shall be bound by the above waiver, as if it had given the waiver itself.

 

19



 

Section 5.6                                   Discontinuance of Proceedings.  If Beneficiary or Trustee shall have proceeded to invoke any right, remedy or recourse permitted under the Indebtedness Documents and shall thereafter elect to discontinue or abandon it for any reason, Beneficiary or Trustee, as the case may be, shall have the unqualified right to do so and, in such an event, Grantor, Beneficiary and Trustee shall be restored to their former positions with respect to the Indebtedness, the Obligations, the Indebtedness Documents, the Trust Property and otherwise, and the rights, remedies, recourses and powers of Beneficiary and Trustee shall continue as if the right, remedy or recourse had never been invoked, but no such discontinuance or abandonment shall waive any Event of Default which may then exist or the right of Beneficiary or Trustee thereafter to exercise any right, remedy or recourse under the Indebtedness Documents for such Event of Default.

 

Section 5.7                                   Application of Proceeds.  The proceeds of any sale made under or by virtue of this Article 5, together with any Rents and other amounts generated by the holding, leasing, management, operation or other use of the Trust Property, shall be applied by Beneficiary or Trustee (or the receiver, if one is appointed) in the following order unless otherwise required by applicable law:

 

(a)                                  to the payment of the costs and expenses of taking possession of the Trust Property and of holding, using, leasing, repairing, improving and selling the same, including, without limitation (1) trustee’s and receiver’s fees and expenses, including the repayment of the amounts evidenced by any receiver’s certificates, (2) court costs, (3) attorneys’ and accountants’ fees and expenses, and (4) costs of advertisement;

 

(b)                                 to the payment of the Indebtedness and performance of the Obligations in such manner and order of preference as set forth in the Indenture; and

 

(c)                                  the balance, if any, to the payment of the Persons legally entitled thereto.

 

Section 5.8                                   Occupancy After Foreclosure.  Except as otherwise required by applicable law, any sale of the Trust Property or any part thereof in accordance with Section 5.1(e) or Section 5.1(f) hereof will divest all right, title and interest of Grantor in and to the property sold.  Subject to applicable law, any purchaser at a foreclosure sale will receive immediate possession of the property purchased.  If Grantor retains possession of such property or any part thereof subsequent to such sale, Grantor will be considered a tenant at sufferance of the purchaser, and will, if Grantor remains in possession after demand to remove, be subject to eviction and removal, forcible or otherwise, with or without process of law.

 

20



 

Section 5.9                                   Additional Advances and Disbursements; Costs of Enforcement.

 

(a)                                  If any Event of Default exists, Beneficiary shall have the right, but not the obligation, to cure such Event of Default in the name and on behalf of Grantor.  All sums advanced and expenses incurred at any time by Beneficiary under this Section 5.9, or otherwise under this Deed of Trust or any of the other Indebtedness Documents or applicable law, shall bear interest from the date that such sum is advanced or expense incurred, to and including the date of reimbursement, computed at the Applicable Rate, and all such sums, together with interest thereon, shall be secured by this Deed of Trust.

 

(b)                                 Grantor shall pay all expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses and all costs and expenses related to legal work, research and litigation) of or incidental to the perfection and enforcement of this Deed of Trust and the other Indebtedness Documents, or the enforcement, compromise or settlement of the Indebtedness or any claim under this Deed of Trust and the other Indebtedness Documents, and for the curing thereof, or for defending or asserting the rights and claims of Beneficiary in respect thereof, by litigation or otherwise.

 

Section 5.10                            No Mortgagee in Possession.  Neither the enforcement of any of the remedies under this Article 5, the assignment of the rents and leases under Article 6, the security interests under Article 7, nor any other remedies afforded to Beneficiary under the Indebtedness Documents, at law or in equity shall cause Beneficiary or Trustee to be deemed or construed to be a mortgagee in possession of the Trust Property, to obligate Beneficiary or Trustee to lease the Trust Property or attempt to do so, or to take any action, incur any expense, or perform or discharge any obligation, duty or liability whatsoever under any of the Leases or otherwise.

 

Section 5.11                            WAIVER OF GRANTOR’S RIGHTS.  BY EXECUTION OF THIS DEED OF TRUST, GRANTOR EXPRESSLY:  (A) ACKNOWLEDGES THE RIGHT OF BENEFICIARY, INDENTURE TRUSTEE AND/OR HOLDERS TO ACCELERATE THE INDEBTEDNESS EVIDENCED BY THE INDENTURE OR OTHER INDEBTEDNESS DOCUMENTS UPON THE OCCURRENCE OF AN EVENT OF DEFAULT;  (B) TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WAIVES ANY AND ALL RIGHTS WHICH GRANTOR MAY HAVE UNDER THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES, THE VARIOUS PROVISIONS OF THE CONSTITUTIONS FOR THE SEVERAL STATES, OR BY REASON OF ANY OTHER APPLICABLE LAW, TO NOTICE AND TO JUDICIAL HEARING PRIOR TO THE EXERCISE BY BENEFICIARY OF ANY RIGHT OR REMEDY HEREIN PROVIDED TO BENEFICIARY;  (C) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT GRANTOR HAS READ THIS DEED OF TRUST AND ITS PROVISIONS HAVE

Section 6.1                                   Assignment.  In furtherance of and in addition to the assignment made by Grantor in Section 2.1 of this Deed of Trust, Grantor hereby absolutely and unconditionally assigns, sells, transfers and conveys to Trustee (for the benefit of Beneficiary) and to Beneficiary all of its right, title and interest in and to all Leases, whether now existing or hereafter entered into, and all of its right, title and interest in and to all Rents.  This assignment is an absolute assignment and not an assignment for additional security only.  So long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and to the extent not prohibited by the Indenture, Grantor shall have a revocable license from Trustee and Beneficiary to exercise all rights extended to the landlord under the Leases, including the right to receive and collect all Rents and to hold the Rents in trust for use in the payment and performance of the Obligations and to otherwise use the same.  The foregoing license is granted subject to the conditional limitation that no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing.  Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, whether or not legal proceedings have commenced, and without regard to waste, adequacy of security for the Obligations or solvency of Grantor, the license herein granted shall automatically expire and terminate, without notice by Trustee or Beneficiary (any such notice being hereby expressly waived by Grantor).

 

Section 6.2                                   Perfection Upon Recordation.  Grantor acknowledges that Beneficiary and Trustee have taken all actions necessary to obtain, and that upon recordation of this Deed of Trust Beneficiary and Trustee shall have, to the extent permitted under applicable law, a valid and fully perfected, present assignment of the Rents arising out of the Leases and all security for such Leases, subject only to the assignment of such Rents pursuant to the Superior Deed of Trust and/or any separate assignment of Rents executed in conjunction therewith.  Grantor acknowledges and agrees that upon recordation of this Deed of Trust, Trustee’s and Beneficiary’s interest in the Rents shall be deemed to be fully perfected, “choate” and enforced as to Grantor and all third parties, including, without limitation, any subsequently appointed trustee in any case under Title 11 of the United States Code (the ”Bankruptcy Code”), without the necessity of commencing a foreclosure action with respect to this Deed of Trust, making formal demand for the Rents, obtaining the appointment of a receiver or taking any other affirmative action.

 

22



 

Section 6.3                                   Bankruptcy Provisions.  Without limitation of the absolute nature of the assignment of the Rents hereunder, Grantor, Trustee and Beneficiary agree that (a) this Deed of Trust shall constitute a “security agreement” for purposes of Section 552(b) of the Bankruptcy Code, (b) the security interest created by this Deed of Trust extends to property of Grantor acquired before the commencement of a case in bankruptcy and to all amounts paid as Rents and (c) such security interest shall extend to all Rents acquired by the estate after the commencement of any case in bankruptcy.

 

Section 6.4                                   No Merger of Estates.  So long as part of the Indebtedness and the Obligations secured hereby remain unpaid and undischarged, the fee and leasehold estates to the Trust Property shall not merge, but shall remain separate and distinct, notwithstanding the union of such estates either in Grantor, Beneficiary, any tenant or any third party by purchase or otherwise.

Section 7.2                                   Financing Statements.  Grantor shall provide authorization for Beneficiary to prepare and record, in form and substance satisfactory to Beneficiary, financing statements (and shall make, execute and/or otherwise deliver to Beneficiary, in form and substance satisfactory to Beneficiary, such further documentation and assurances) as Beneficiary may, from time to time, reasonably consider necessary to create, perfect and preserve Beneficiary’s security interest

(a)                                  Agent has been appointed to act as Agent hereunder by the Indenture Trustee.  Agent shall have the right hereunder to make demands, to give notices, to exercise or refrain from exercising any rights, and to take or refrain from taking any action (including, without limitation, the release or substitution of the Trust Property) in accordance with the terms of the Indenture, any related agency agreement between Agent and the Indenture Trustee (collectively, as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified or replaced from time to time, the “Agency Documents”) and this Deed of Trust.  Grantor and all other persons shall be entitled to rely on releases, waivers, consents, approvals, notifications and other acts of Agent, without inquiry into the existence of required consents or approvals of the Indenture Trustee therefor.

 

(b)                                 Beneficiary shall at all times be the same Person that is Agent under the Agency Documents.  Written notice of resignation by Agent pursuant to the Agency Documents shall also constitute notice of resignation as Agent under this Deed of Trust.  Removal of Agent pursuant to any provision of the Agency Documents shall also constitute removal as Agent under this Deed of Trust.  Appointment of a successor Agent pursuant to the Agency Documents shall also constitute appointment of a successor Agent under this Deed of Trust.  Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Agent by a successor Agent under the Agency Documents, that successor Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring or removed Agent as the Beneficiary under this Deed of Trust, and the retiring or removed Agent shall promptly (i) assign and transfer to such successor Agent all of its right, title and interest in and to this Deed of Trust and the Trust Property, and (ii) execute and deliver to such successor Agent such assignments and amendments and take such other actions, as may be necessary or appropriate in connection with the assignment to such successor Agent of the liens and security interests created hereunder, whereupon such retiring or removed Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under this Deed of Trust.  After any retiring or removed Agent’s resignation or removal hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Deed of Trust and the Agency Documents shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it under this Deed of Trust while it was the Agent hereunder.

 

(c)                                  Each reference herein to any right granted to, benefit conferred upon or power exercisable, exercised or action taken by the “Beneficiary” shall be deemed to be a reference to or be deemed to have been so taken, as the case may be, by Beneficiary, together with its successors and assigns, in its capacity as Collateral Agent pursuant to the Indenture for the benefit of the Holders, all as more fully set forth in the Indenture

 

28



 

Section 9.13                            No Amendments.  This Deed of Trust shall not be in any way amended or modified unless such amendment or modification is in writing and signed by Beneficiary.

 

ARTICLE 10
LOCAL LAW PROVISIONS

 

Section 10.1                            Power of Sale.  Should default be made by Grantor in the payment or performance of any Indebtedness or other Obligation or agreement secured hereby and/or in the performance of any agreement herein, or should Grantor otherwise be in default hereunder, Beneficiary may, subject to NRS 107.080, declare all sums secured hereby immediately due by delivery to Trustee of a written notice of breach and election to sell (which notice Trustee shall cause to be recorded and mailed as required by law) and shall surrender to Trustee this Deed of Trust.

 

After three (3) months shall have elapsed following recordation of any such notice of breach, Trustee shall sell the property subject hereto at such time and at such place in the State of Nevada as Trustee, in its sole discretion, shall deem best to accomplish the objects of these trusts, having first given notice of such sale as then required by law.  In the conduct of any such sale Trustee may act itself or through any auctioneer, agent or attorney.  The place of sale may be either in the county in which the property to be sold, or any part thereof, is situated, or at an office of the Trustee located in the State of Nevada.

 

Upon the request of Beneficiary or if required by law Trustee shall postpone sale of all or any portion of said property or interest therein by public announcement at the time fixed by said notice of sale, and shall thereafter postpone said sale from time to time by public announcement at the time previously appointed.

 

At the time of sale so fixed, Trustee shall sell the property so advertised or any part thereof or interest therein either as a whole or in separate parcels, as Beneficiary may determine in its sole and absolute discretion, to the highest bidder for cash in lawful money of the United States, payable at the time of sale, and shall deliver to such purchaser a deed or deeds or other appropriate instruments conveying the property so sold, but without covenant or warranty, express or implied.  Beneficiary and Trustee may bid and purchase at such sale.  To the extent of the Indebtedness secured hereby, Beneficiary need not bid for cash at any sale of all or any portion of the Property pursuant hereto, but the amount of any successful bid by Beneficiary shall be applied in reduction of said Indebtedness.  Trustor hereby agrees, if it is then still in possession, to surrender, immediately and without demand, possession of said property to any purchaser.

 

29



 

Trustee shall apply the proceeds of any such sale to the payment of expenses of sale and all charges and expenses of Trustee and of these trusts, including costs of evidence of title and Trustee’s fees in connection with sale; all sums expended under the terms hereof, not then repaid, with accrued interest at the default rate determined by the Indenture; all other sums then secured hereby; and the remainder, if any, to the person or persons legally entitled thereto.

 

Beneficiary, from time to time before Trustee’s sale, may rescind any notice of breach and election to sell by executing, delivering and causing Trustee to record a written notice of such rescission.  The exercise by Beneficiary of such right of rescission shall not constitute a waiver of any breach or default then existing or subsequently occurring, or impair the right of Beneficiary to execute and deliver to Trustee, as above provided, other notices of breach and election to sell, nor otherwise affect any term, covenant or condition hereof or under any obligation secured hereby, or any of the rights, obligations or remedies of the parties thereunder.

 

Section 10.2                            Credit Bids.  At any foreclosure sale, any person, including Grantor, Trustee or Beneficiary, may bid for and acquire the Trust Property or any part thereof to the extent permitted by then applicable law.  Instead of paying cash for such property, Beneficiary may settle for the purchase price by crediting the sales price of the property against the obligations in the order provided by NRS 40.462.

 

Section 10.3                            Nevada Law.  Where not inconsistent with the above, the following covenants, Nos. 1; 2 (full replacement value); 3; 4 (the rate or rates at which interest is computed upon default of the Indebtedness); 5; 6; 7 (attorneys’ fees as provided herein); 8 and 9 of NRS 107.030 are hereby adopted and made a part of this Deed of Trust.

 

ARTICLE 11
INTERCREDITOR AGREEMENT

 

The lien of this Deed of Trust is subordinate to the lien of the Superior Deed of Trust to the extent set forth in the Intercreditor Agreement and this Deed of Trust is subject to the terms of the Intercreditor Agreement.
