This LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT (together with all Schedules and Exhibits hereto, this “Agreement”) between KELTIC FINANCIAL PARTNERS II, LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Lender”) and HOOPER HOLMES, INC., a corporation organized under the laws of the State of New York (“Borrower”), is dated the date of execution by Lender on the signature page of this Agreement (the “Effective Date”).

RECITALS:    Borrower has requested Lender to extend loans to Borrower under a revolving credit facility to refinance existing Indebtedness of Borrower and support Borrower's working capital needs and for other purposes as described in this Agreement. Lender is willing to extend such loans to Borrower subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.

AGREEMENT:
ARTICLE 1.DEFINITIONS.
Unless defined in the introductory paragraph above, in the body of this Agreement, or in the Exhibits or other Schedules hereto, capitalized terms have the meanings given to such terms in the Definitions Schedule. The Definitions Schedule also provides meanings for certain other phrases used in this Agreement (whether or not capitalized). Each term defined in the singular shall be interpreted in a collective manner when used in the plural, and each term defined in the plural shall be interpreted in an individual manner when used in the singular.
ARTICLE 2.THE LOANS.
2.1    Revolving Credit; Promissory Note; Revolving Credit Increases. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and as long as no Default or Event of Default then exists, on Borrower's request prior to the Revolving Credit Termination Date Lender shall lend to Borrower under a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit”) an aggregate principal sum (the “Borrowing Capacity”) equal to the lesser of (a) TEN MILLION AND 00/100 DOLLARS ($10,000,000.00) plus the amount of any and all Revolving Credit Increases in effect from time to time (the “Revolving Credit Limit”), or (b) the Borrowing Base. The maximum principal amount of any Advance shall not exceed an amount equal to the amount of the Borrowing Capacity less the aggregate amount of all Obligations then outstanding. Within the limits of the Borrowing Capacity, and subject to terms and conditions of this Agreement, Borrower may borrow, repay and reborrow the principal amount of the Revolving Credit. Borrower's obligation to pay the principal of, and interest on, Advances made to Borrower and the Revolving Credit shall be evidenced by a Note. Borrower may request an increase in the Revolving Credit (a “Revolving Credit Increase Request”) at any time after the Effective Date and before the Revolving Credit Termination Date so long as (i) no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing on the date of such Revolving Credit Increase Request, (ii) the amount of such Revolving Credit Increase Request is not less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00) and (iii) after giving effect to such Revolving Credit Increase Request, the aggregate amount of Revolving Credit Increases would not exceed Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000.00). Lender shall have the right to decline a Revolving Credit Increase Request in Lender's sole discretion and notwithstanding Borrower's compliance with all terms and conditions of this Agreement. Any increase in the amount of the Revolving Credit hereunder (a “Revolving Credit Increase”) shall become effective only if (x) Lender has delivered an Authenticated notice to Borrower granting the applicable Revolving Credit Increase Request, (y) Borrower has delivered a Note to Lender evidencing such Revolving Credit Increase and (z) Borrower shall have (I) paid Lender a commitment fee equal to 1% of the amount of such Revolving Credit Increase and (II) reimburse Lender for all costs and expenses incurred by Lender (including, without limitation, attorneys' fees) in connection therewith.

2.2    Conditions to Loans and Advances. Lender's obligation to make any Loan or Advance under this Agreement is subject to the following conditions precedent: (a) that the representations set forth in ARTICLE 5 and in the other Loan Documents shall be true and complete on and as of the date of such Loan or Advance (except any such representation which is made as of a specified date, which shall be true and complete as of such date); (b) that on and as of the date of such Loan or Advance Borrower shall have complied with all covenants and agreements set forth in ARTICLE 6, ARTICLE 7 and ARTICLE 8 and in the other Loan Documents; and (c) that as of the date of such Loan or Advance, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing. Borrower's acceptance of each Loan or Advance under this Agreement shall constitute a confirmation by Borrower, as of the date of such Loan or Advance (i) of the accuracy and completeness of the representations set forth in ARTICLE 5 and in the other Loan Documents (except any such representation which is as of a specified date, which shall be accurate and complete as of such date), (ii) of Borrower's satisfaction of the covenants and agreements set forth in ARTICLE 6, ARTICLE 7 and ARTICLE 8 and in the other Loan Documents);, and (iii) of the absence of any Default or Event of Default. Borrower shall confirm such matters by delivery to Lender of an Authenticated “Compliance Certificate” as provided in Section 6.4 and Section 6.5, and if requested by Lender by delivery of a Compliance Certificate with any “Notice of Borrowing” (as defined in Section 2.5) requesting an Advance.

1



2.3    Overadvances. Lender shall not be required to make any Advance at any time in a principal amount that would, when aggregated with the amount of the Obligations then outstanding, exceed the Borrowing Capacity. If the Obligations of Borrower to Lender incurred under the Revolving Credit exceed the Borrowing Capacity for any reason (the amount of such excess to be referred to as an “Overadvance”), then (a) such Overadvance will constitute an Advance for purposes of this Agreement, (b) payment of such Overadvance will be secured by the Collateral, (c) Borrower shall immediately repay the amount of such Overadvance without notice or demand by Lender, and (d) Lender may in Lender's sole discretion refrain from making any additional Advances until the Overadvance has been repaid to Lender in full.

2.4    Reserves. Lender may at any time establish one or more reserves (“Reserves”) under the Revolving Credit in Lender's reasonable discretion except that Lender may establish Reserves in its sole discretion with respect to (a) any event which, in Lender's reasonable determination, diminishes the value of any Collateral or (b) any contingent liability of Borrower. For example, and without limitation, Lender may establish Reserves for liabilities of Borrower such as accrued warranties and prepaid maintenance contracts. A Reserve may limit the Borrowing Capacity, reduce the Borrowing Base (by reduction of an advance rate set forth in the Borrowing Base or otherwise), or otherwise restrict Borrower's ability to borrow under the Revolving Credit. Lender shall endeavor to notify Borrower promptly after the establishment of any Reserve; provided, however, under no circumstance shall the delivery or receipt of any such notice constitute a condition to Lender's establishment of any Reserve.

2.5    Manner of Revolving Credit Borrowing; Notice of Borrowing. Borrower shall request each Advance by delivering an Authenticated Notice of Borrowing in the form of Exhibit A (a “Notice of Borrowing”) to Lender (a) by facsimile, or (b) by electronic transmission including, without limitation, e-mail. Borrower must verify Lender's receipt of each Notice of Borrowing by telephone confirmation, or upon Borrower's request by Borrower's receipt of confirming e-mail from Lender. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Lender shall deliver the amount of the Advance requested in the Notice of Borrowing for credit to any account of Borrower (other than a payroll account) at a bank in the United States of America as Borrower may specify in writing by wire transfer of immediately available funds (i) on the same day of Lender's receipt of the Notice of Borrowing if Lender verifies that the Notice of Borrowing was received by Lender on or before 11 a.m. Eastern Time on a Banking Day, or (ii) on the Banking Day immediately following Lender's receipt of the Notice of Borrowing if Lender verifies that the Notice of Borrowing was received by Lender after 11 a.m. Eastern Time on a Banking Day, or Lender verifies that the Notice of Borrowing was received by Lender on any day that is not a Banking Day. Lender shall charge to the Revolving Credit Lender's usual and customary fees for the wire transfer of each Advance.

2.6    Collections.
(a)Borrower shall open a lockbox (the “Lockbox”) with a financial institution acceptable to Lender (the “Depository Bank”) pursuant to documents with the Depository Bank that are in form and content acceptable to Lender. Borrower shall instruct all Account Debtors to forward all payments of Receivables to the Lockbox. Borrower shall require each customer making a payment of a Receivable by check or other instrument to make such check or instrument payable to the order of (i) Borrower, or (ii) Lender, or (iii) Borrower and Lender jointly. Collected funds in the Lockbox shall be deposited into an account with the Depository Bank established by Lender and subject to Lender's sole dominion and control (including, but not limited to the sole power of withdrawal) (the “Blocked Account”). The agreement(s) relating to the Blocked Account between Lender, the Depository Bank and Borrower shall be in form and content satisfactory to Lender.
(b)All Proceeds of Collateral received by Borrower, including cash, checks, drafts, notes, acceptances or other forms of payment, and whether Proceeds of Receivables, Inventory, insurance claims or other otherwise, shall be received by Borrower in trust for Lender. Borrower shall deliver all Proceeds of Collateral in Borrower's possession to the Blocked Account immediately after receipt, in precisely the form received (except for the endorsement or assignment of Borrower where necessary).
(c)Borrower shall cause Persons processing or collecting any credit card payments or Proceeds of Receivables on behalf of Borrower to deliver such payments or Proceeds to the Blocked Account promptly, but not less frequently than once every week.

2



2.7    Crediting of Funds. Each Banking Day Lender shall withdraw available funds from the Blocked Account, deposit such funds in the Settlement Account, and credit available funds received in the Settlement Account to the payment of the Obligations. Lender shall credit to the payment of the Obligations any other form of funds received by Lender in the Settlement Account for which Lender has received notice that such funds are collected and available to Lender (i) on the same day of Lender's receipt of such notice if such notice is received by Lender on or before 2 p.m. Eastern Time on a Banking Day, and (ii) on the Banking Day immediately following Lender receipt of such notice if such notice is received by Lender after 2 p.m. Eastern Time on a Banking Day, or if such notice is received by Lender on a day that is not a Banking Day. In the absence of an Event of Default, all funds credited to the repayment of the Obligations will be applied in the following order:
(a)    to unpaid fees and expenses;
(b)    to unpaid interest;
(c)    to the outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Credit; and
(d)    to all other Obligations in such order as Lender shall elect.

Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default Lender shall credit available funds received in the Settlement Account to the repayment of the Obligations in such order and in such amounts as Lender determines in Lender's sole discretion.
All funds credited to the payment of the Obligations are conditional upon final payment to Lender in cash or solvent credits of the items giving rise to such funds. If any item credited to the payment of the Obligations is not paid to Lender, the amount of any credit given for such item shall be charged to the balance of the Obligations whether or not the item is returned. For the purpose of computing interest on the Obligations, interest shall continue to accrue on the amount of any funds credited to the payment of the Obligations by Lender for a period of two (2) Banking Days after the date so credited.
2.8    Records of Lender. Lender shall maintain Records relating to the Obligations, Loans and Advances (including schedules maintained electronically) containing such annotations as Lender deems appropriate, including but not limited to annotations regarding the dates and amounts of Advances, the principal balance of any Loan, and the dates and amounts of repayments of any Loans, and shall account to Borrower monthly. In the absence of manifest error each Record of any annotations delivered to Borrower shall be conclusive and binding upon Borrower unless Borrower delivers to Lender written notice of any objection within ten (10) Banking Days of receipt. If Borrower disputes the accuracy of any Record or annotation, Borrower's notice shall specify in detail the particulars of its basis for contending that such Record or annotation is inaccurate. No failure of Lender to render any Record or in making any annotation shall affect the obligation of Borrower to pay and perform the Obligations pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

2.9    Payment on Revolving Credit Termination Date; Termination of Advances. On the Revolving Credit Termination Date Borrower shall pay to Lender in cash the entire outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Credit, plus all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, plus all fees, costs, expenses and other amounts payable to Lender in connection with the Revolving Credit, plus all other Obligations payable to Lender pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Lender shall not be obligated to make or continue to extend any Advance or continue any Loan to Borrower under the Revolving Credit after the Revolving Credit Termination Date.

ARTICLE 3.INTEREST AND FEES.

3.1    Interest. Borrower shall pay to Lender interest on the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Credit until all Obligations have been finally and indefeasibly paid to Lender in cash and performed in full. Interest shall accrue daily on the daily unpaid principal amount of the Revolving Credit, and Borrower shall pay interest to Lender monthly in arrears commencing on the first Banking Day of the calendar month immediately following the Effective Date and on the first Banking Day of each calendar month thereafter. The interest rate on the Revolving Credit shall equal:
(a)if no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Revolving Credit Rate; and
(b)if a Default or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Default Rate.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, in no event shall any interest paid to Lender on the Revolving Credit exceed an amount that would cause the interest rate on the Revolving Credit to exceed the maximum rate permitted by applicable law. Any amount of interest paid to Lender that is finally and irrevocably determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to exceed the maximum interest payable on the Revolving Credit under applicable law shall be returned by Lender to Borrower promptly thereafter.

3


3.2    Facility Fee. Borrower shall pay to Lender annually a fee (the “Facility Fee”) in an amount equal to one percent (1.00%) of the Revolving Credit Limit. The Facility Fee shall be earned in full on the Effective Date and on the first (1st) day of each subsequent Contract Year. In the absence of the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default, the Facility Fee shall be paid in twelve (12) equal monthly installments, in arrears, on the first day of each calendar month. Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default and written notice by Lender, Borrower shall immediately pay to Lender the portion of the Facility Fee remaining unpaid for the then-current Contract Year. The Facility Fee shall be appropriately adjusted during any Contract Year in which the maximum principal amount of any Loan is increased.

3.3    Collateral Management Fee. Borrower shall pay to Lender monthly a collateral management fee (the “Collateral Management Fee”) in an amount equal to One Thousand Five Hundred and 00/100 Dollars ($1,500.00). The Collateral Management Fee shall be earned in full on the Banking Day following the Effective Date and on the first (1st) day of each calendar month thereafter until the date all Obligations have been finally and indefeasibly paid to Lender in cash and performed in full. The Collateral Management Fee shall be paid in arrears commencing on the first Banking Day of the calendar month immediately following the Effective Date and on the first Banking Day of each calendar month thereafter. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of a Default or Event of Default, the monthly Collateral Management Fee shall equal Three Thousand Dollars ($3,000.00).

3.4    Commitment Fee. In connection with Lender's commitment to extend Loans to Borrower, on or before the Effective Date Borrower shall have paid to Lender a fee in an aggregate amount equal to One Hundred Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($100,000.00), which fee Lender acknowledges has been paid.

3.5    Field Examination Fees; Appraisals. Borrower shall be liable for and promptly reimburse Lender for all fees, costs and expenses associated with periodic field examinations and appraisals of Collateral performed by Lender and/or Lender's agents, all as deemed necessary by Lender in its reasonable discretion; provided, however, that Borrower shall not be liable for more than four of any such examinations and appraisals in any consecutive twelve-month period in which no Event of Default has occurred.

3.6    Late Document Fee. Borrower shall pay to Lender a fee of One Hundred Fifty and 00/100 Dollars ($150.00) per document per calendar day for each document, instrument or report required to be delivered to Lender pursuant to ARTICLE 6 of this Agreement that is overdue.

3.7    Liquidated Damages. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Borrower shall have the right prior to the third (3rd) anniversary of the Effective Date and upon sixty (60) calendar days' advance written notice to Lender (a “Principal Reduction Notice”) to prepay in full the entire outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Credit, all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, all fees, costs, expenses and other amounts payable to Lender in connection with the Revolving Credit, and all other Obligations payable to Lender under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. A Principal Reduction Notice shall be irrevocable when delivered to Lender, and if all Obligations are finally and indefeasibly paid to Lender in connection with such Principal Reduction Notice the Revolving Credit shall be terminated and all obligations of Lender to extend credit to Borrower under the Revolving Credit shall terminate.
If prior to the third (3rd) anniversary of the Effective Date (a) Borrower prepays all Obligations outstanding in full pursuant to the foregoing paragraph, or (b) pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, either (i) Lender demands repayment of the outstanding Obligations in whole or in part (other than with respect to a repayment, if any, demanded by Lender solely as a result of an Overadvance arising from the establishment of a Reserve by Lender), or (ii) repayment of the outstanding Obligations are otherwise accelerated in whole or in part (other than with respect to a repayment, if any, demanded by Lender solely as a result of an Overadvance arising from the establishment of a Reserve by Lender), then (c) at the time of such prepayment, repayment, demand or acceleration Borrower shall pay liquidated damages to Lender in an amount equal to the Revolving Credit Limit multiplied by (i) three (3.00%) if such prepayment, repayment, demand or acceleration occurs prior to the first (1st) anniversary of the Effective Date, (ii) two percent (2.00%) if such prepayment, repayment, demand or acceleration occurs on or after the first (1st) anniversary of the Effective Date but prior to the second (2nd) anniversary of the Effective Date, and (iii) one percent (1.00%) if such prepayment, repayment, demand or acceleration occurs on or after the second (2nd) anniversary of the Effective Date but prior to the third (3rd) anniversary of the Effective Date.
Borrower acknowledges and agrees that it would be difficult or impractical to calculate Lender's actual damages from early termination of the Revolving Credit and Lender's compensation from Loans hereunder following such early termination, the liquidated damages provided above are intended to be fair and reasonable approximations of such damages, and that the liquidated damages are not intended to be penalties.

4



3.8    Computation of Interest and Fees. All interest and fees under this Agreement shall be computed on the basis of a year consisting of three hundred sixty (360) days for the number of days actually elapsed.

ARTICLE 4.COLLATERAL AND SECURITY INTEREST.

4.1    Grant of Security Interest. As security for the final and indefeasible payment to Lender in cash and performance of the Obligations in full, Borrower hereby pledges to Lender, and grants to Lender a continuing general lien upon and security interest in and to the Collateral. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that Collateral securing any purchase money security interest in favor of Lender also secures all non-purchase money security interests in favor of Lender.

4.2    Nature of Security Interest. The pledge, lien and security interest granted to Lender pursuant to this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect until the Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations not yet due and payable under Section 10.12) have been finally and indefeasibly paid to Lender in cash and performed in full, notwithstanding the termination of any other Loan Document (in whole or in part), the termination of Lender's obligations to extend credit to Borrower under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, the full or partial termination (whether by prepayment, demand or acceleration) of any Loan, or that the Revolving Credit may from time to time be temporarily in a credit position.

4.3    Perfection and Protection of Security Interest.

(a)    Borrower will execute and deliver to Lender security agreements, assignments (including, without limitation, assignments of specific Accounts, Receivables, Certificates of title, Chattel Paper, Documents, Instruments, Goods, Inventory, Equipment and General Intangibles), and other documents and instruments as Lender may at any time reasonably request to establish, evidence, attach, perfect, or protect any security interest, pledge, lien, charge, mortgage or other encumbrance granted to Lender. Borrower authorizes Lender to file all financing statements, and all continuations or amendments thereof, to establish, evidence, attach, perfect or protect any security interest, pledge, lien, charge, mortgage or other encumbrance granted to Lender in the Collateral. Borrower agrees that subject to Borrower's rights under Section 9-509(d)(2) of the UCC, Borrower is not and shall not be authorized to file any financing statement or amendment, termination or corrective statement with respect to any financing statement filed by Lender, or with respect to any continuation or amendment thereof, without the prior written consent of Lender.

(i)Sale, Lease, etc. of Collateral. Lender may, without demand, advertising or notice, all of which Debtor hereby waives (except as the same may be required by the UCC or other applicable law), at any time or times in one or more public or private sales or other dispositions, for cash, on credit or otherwise, at such prices and upon such terms as are commercially reasonable (within the meaning of the UCC) (A) sell, lease, license or otherwise dispose of any and all Collateral, and/or (B) deliver and grant options to a third party to purchase, lease, license or otherwise dispose of any and all Collateral. Lender may sell, lease, license or otherwise dispose of any Collateral in its then-present condition or following any preparation or processing deemed necessary by Lender in its reasonable discretion.

Lender may, if it deems it reasonable, postpone or adjourn any sale or other disposition of any Collateral from time to time by an announcement at the time and place of the sale or disposition to be so postponed or adjourned without being required to give a new notice of sale or disposition; provided, however, that Lender shall provide Debtor with written notice of the time and place of such postponed or adjourned sale or disposition. Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that Lender's compliance with any requirements of applicable law in connection with a sale, lease, license or other disposition of Collateral will not be considered to adversely affect the commercial reasonableness of any sale, lease, license or other disposition of such Collateral.

(ii)Application of Disposition Proceeds. Borrower shall be obligated for, and the Proceeds of any sale, lease, license or other disposition of Collateral pursuant to this paragraph (f) shall be applied (A) first to the costs of retaking, holding, preparing for disposition, processing, and disposing of Collateral, including the fees and disbursements of attorneys, auctioneers, appraisers, consultants and accountants employed by Lender in connection with the foregoing, and then (B) to the payment of the Obligations in whatever order Lender may elect. Borrower shall remain liable for all amounts of the Obligations remaining unpaid as a result of any deficiency of the Proceeds of the sale, lease, license or other disposition of Collateral after such Proceeds are applied as provided in the foregoing sentence. Lender shall pay any Proceeds of the sale, lease, license or other disposition of Collateral remaining after application as provided in clause (A) and (B), above, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the UCC.

(iii)Warranties; Sales on Credit. Lender may sell, lease, license or otherwise dispose of the Collateral without giving any warranties and may specifically disclaim any and all warranties, including but not limited to warranties of title, possession, merchantability and fitness. Debtor hereby acknowledges and agrees that Lender's disclaimer of any and all warranties in connection with a sale, lease, license or other disposition of Collateral will not be considered to adversely affect the commercial reasonableness of any such disposition of the Collateral. If Lender sells, leases, licenses or otherwise disposes of any of the Collateral on credit, Borrower will be credited only with payments actually made by the recipient of such Collateral and received by Lender and applied to the Obligations. If any Person fails to pay for Collateral acquired pursuant to this paragraph (f) on credit, Lender may re-offer the Collateral for sale, lease, license or other disposition.

(g) Election of Remedies for Non-Collateral Property. Notwithstanding Lender's security interest in and to the Collateral, to the extent that the Obligations are now or are hereafter secured by any Property other than the Collateral, or by the guaranty, endorsement, assets or Property of any other Person, Lender shall have the right in Lender's sole discretion to determine which rights, security, security interests, liens, charges, encumbrances and/or remedies Lender may at any time pursue, foreclose upon, relinquish, subordinate, modify or take any other action with respect to, without in any way impairing, modifying or affecting any of Lender's other rights, security, security interests, liens, charges, encumbrances and/or remedies with respect to such Property, or any of Lender's rights or remedies under this Agreement or any other Loan Document.

(h) Lender's Obligations. Borrower agrees that Lender shall not have any obligation to preserve rights to any Collateral against prior parties or to marshal any Collateral of any kind for the benefit of any other creditor of Borrower or any other Person. Lender shall not be responsible to Borrower for loss or damage resulting from Lender's failure to enforce its security interests or collect any Collateral or Proceeds or any monies due or to become due under the Obligations or any other liability or obligation of Borrower to Lender.

20




(i)Waiver of Rights by Borrower. Except as may be otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, Borrower waives, to the extent permitted by law, all bonds, security or sureties required by any Governmental Rule or otherwise as an incident to Lender's taking of possession of, or sale, lease, license or other disposition of, any Collateral. Borrower authorizes Lender, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default to enter upon any premises owned by or leased to Borrower where the Collateral is kept, without obligation to pay rent or for use and occupancy, through self-help, without judicial process and without having first given notice to Borrower or obtained an order of any court, and peacefully retake possession thereof by securing at or removing same from such premises.
