2.   Advances. At any time or times prior to the Maturity Date, Maker may request, by written notice to Payee, advances hereunder (each, an “Advance”) up to the maximum principal amount hereof, and Payee shall make such amounts available to Maker in immediately available funds no later than three (3) business days after the date of such request. The minimum Advance hereunder shall be One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000). Within the foregoing limits and subject to this Agreement, the Maker may borrow Advances under this Section 2 subject to the limits in Section 3, repay or prepay Advances, and reborrow Advances at any time prior to the Maturity Date provided that no Event of Default (defined below) remains uncured.

4.   Interest Rate.

Each change in the interest rate shall be effective on the first day of the month immediately following the date on which the Wall Street Journal publishes a change in the Prime Rate. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the liability of Maker for payment of interest under this Note shall not exceed the maximum amount permitted by law, and if any payment by Maker includes interest in excess of such maximum amount, Payee shall apply such excess to the reduction of principal or, if none is due, such excess shall be refunded to Maker. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year.

 

5.   Maturity Date. All outstanding principal and accrued interest hereunder shall be due and payable on the sixth (6th) anniversary of the date the first Advance is made hereunder.

9.   Remedies Cumulative. No right or remedy conferred upon or reserved to Payee under this Note, or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity or by statute or other legislative enactment, is intended to be exclusive of any other right or remedy, and each and every such right or remedy shall be cumulative and concurrent, and shall be in addition to every other such right or remedy, and may be pursued singly, concurrently, successively or otherwise, at the sole discretion of Payee, and shall not be exhausted by any one exercise thereof but may be exercised as often as occasion therefore shall occur.
