4.   INTEREST; PAYMENTS.
  4.1   Interest Accrual. Interest on the outstanding principal balance of this Note shall accrue from the Disbursement Date at the Note Rate calculated on an Actual/360 Basis.
 
  4.2   Payments. Monthly payments, each in the applicable Monthly Payment Amount, shall commence on the First Monthly Payment Amount Due Date and continue on each Due Date thereafter. In addition, if the Disbursement Date is not the sixth(6th) calendar day of a month (or the next succeeding Business Day after such sixth (6th) calendar day if such calendar day is not a Business Day), an interest-only payment shall be due on the First Due Date. Borrower acknowledges that the applicable Monthly Payment Amount is determined on an Actual/360 Basis. On the Maturity Date, all unpaid principal and accrued but unpaid interest shall be due and owing in full. All interest shall be paid in arrears. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Note or the other Loan Documents, all payments and deposits due under this Note or the other Loan Documents shall be made to Lender not later than 12:00 noon, California time, on the day on which such payment or deposit is due. Any funds received by Lender after such time shall, for all purposes, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day.
 
  4.3   Acknowledgments. Borrower acknowledges that interest calculated on an Actual/360 Basis exceeds interest calculated on a 30/360 Basis and, therefore: (a) a greater portion of each monthly installment of principal and interest will be applied to interest using the Actual/360 Basis than would be the case if interest accrued on a 30/360 Basis; and (b) the unpaid principal balance of this Note on the Maturity Date will be greater using the Actual/360 Basis than would be the case if interest accrued on a 30/360 Basis.

 


 

  4.4   Application of Payments. In the absence of a specific determination by Lender to the contrary, all payments paid by Borrower to Lender in connection with the obligations of Borrower under this Note and under the other Loan Documents shall be applied in the following order of priority: (a) to amounts, other than principal and interest, due to Lender pursuant to this Note or the other Loan Documents; (b) to accrued but unpaid interest on this Note; and (c) to the unpaid principal balance of this Note. Borrower irrevocably waives the right to direct the application of any payments at any time received by Lender from or on behalf of Borrower, and Borrower agrees that Lender shall have the continuing exclusive right to apply any such payments to the then due and owing obligations of Borrower in such order of priority as Lender may deem advisable.
  4.5.   Taxes, Regulatory Costs and Reserve Percentages. Upon Lender’s demand, Borrower shall pay to Lender, in addition to all other amounts which may be or become due and payable under this Note and the other Loan Documents, any and all Taxes and Regulatory Costs allocable to the Loan based on Lender’s reasonable good faith computation. Further, at Lender’s option, the Adjusted LIBO Rate shall be automatically adjusted by adjusting the Reserve Percentage, as determined by Lender in its prudent banking judgment, from the date of imposition (or subsequent date selected by Lender) of any such Regulatory Costs. Lender shall give Borrower notice of any Taxes and Regulatory Costs as soon as practicable after their occurrence, but Borrower shall be liable for all Taxes and Regulatory Costs allocable to the Loan based on Lender’s reasonable good faith computation regardless of whether or when notice is so given.
  4.6.   Purchase, Sale and Matching of Funds. Borrower understands, agrees and acknowledges the following: (a) Lender has no obligation to purchase, sell, and/or match funds in connection with the use of an Adjusted LIBO Rate as a basis for calculating the Note Rate; (b) an Adjusted LIBO Rate is used merely as a reference in determining the Note Rate; and (c) Borrower has accepted an Adjusted LIBO Rate as a reasonable and fair basis for calculating the Note Rate. Borrower further agrees to pay the Taxes and Regulatory Costs, if any, allocable to the Loan based on Lender’s reasonable good faith computation, whether or not Lender elects to purchase, sell and/or match funds.
  4.7   LIBO Breakage Fee. If and upon (i) any Default by Borrower and acceleration of the Loan by Lender, or (ii) any payment of or upon the Loan is made on any day that is not the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto (regardless of the source of that prepayment and whether voluntary, by acceleration or otherwise), Borrower shall pay a LIBO Breakage Fee in addition to all other sums payable by Borrower at that time.
  4.8   Interest Rate Protection. On or before the closing of the Loan, Borrower shall enter into an interest rate protection agreement (the “Interest Rate Protection Agreement”), in form and substance acceptable to Lender, with Lender or a financial institution acceptable to Lender, to fix or cap the interest rate, for the term of the Loan, at an interest rate that results in a Debt Service Coverage Ratio of no less than 2.00 to 1.00. The “Debt Service Coverage Ratio” shall be calculated by dividing the monthly cash flow for the Property by the Monthly Payment Amount for the corresponding period. For the purposes hereof, “cash flow” shall be defined as net income of Borrower after provision for approved operating expenses, increased by the amount of depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges, if any. In the event that Borrower enters into an Interest Rate Protection Agreement with a financial institution other than Lender, (i) such agreement shall not be secured, either directly or indirectly, by the Property (including Borrower’s equity interest in the Property), and (ii) a default under the Loan shall not be considered a default under the Interest Rate Protection

 


 

Agreement. In the event that Borrower enters into an Interest Rate Protection Agreement with Lender, (i) such agreement shall be secured by the Property, and (ii) it shall be an Event of Default under the Loan if any event of default occurs under such Interest Rate Protection Agreement where Borrower (or its affiliate) is the defaulting party.
5.   LATE CHARGE; DEFAULT RATE.
  5.1   Late Charge. If all or any portion of any payment or deposit required hereunder (other than the payment due on the Maturity Date) is not paid or deposited on or before the fourth day following the day on which the payment is due Borrower shall pay a late or collection charge, as liquidated damages, equal to five percent (5%) of the amount of such unpaid payment. If all or any portion of the payment due on the Maturity Date is paid after the Maturity Date and on a date which is not the sixth (6th) calendar day of a month (or the next succeeding Business Day after such sixth (6th) calendar day if such calendar day is not a Business Day), Borrower shall pay a late or collection charge, as liquidated damages, equal to the interest which would have accrued on such amount during the period commencing on the date payment of such amount is actually made and ending on the last day of the calendar month in which payment of such amount is actually made. Borrower acknowledges that Lender will incur additional expenses as a result of any late payments or deposits hereunder, which expenses would be impracticable to quantify, and that Borrower’s payments under this Section 5.1 are a reasonable estimate of such expenses. Commencing upon a Default and continuing until such Default shall have been cured by Borrower, all sums owing on this Note shall bear interest until paid in full at the Default Rate.
6.   MAXIMUM RATE PERMITTED BY LAW. Neither this Note nor the other Loan Documents shall be construed to require the payment or permit the collection of any interest or any late payment charge in excess of the maximum rate permitted by law. If any such excess interest or late payment charge is provided for under this Note or any of the other Loan Documents or if this Note or any of the other Loan Documents shall be adjudicated to provide for such excess, Borrower shall not be obligated to pay such excess notwithstanding any other provision of the Loan Documents. If Lender shall collect amounts which are deemed to constitute interest and which would increase the effective interest rate to a rate in excess of the maximum rate permitted by law, all such amounts deemed to constitute interest in excess of the maximum legal rate shall, upon such determination, at the option of Lender, be returned to Borrower or credited against the outstanding principal balance of this Note.
7.   [INTENTIONALLY OMITTED].
8.   MISCELLANEOUS. The date of this Note and the other Loan Documents is for reference purposes only. The effective date of delivery and transfer to Lender of the security under the Security Instrument and the other Loan Documents and of Borrower’s and Lender’s obligations under this Note and the other Loan Documents shall be the date the Security Instrument is recorded in the real estate records of the county where the Property is located. If this Note is executed by more than one person or entity as Borrower, the obligations of each such person or entity shall be joint and several. No person or entity shall be a mere accommodation maker, but each shall be primarily and directly liable hereunder. Except as otherwise provided in any other Loan Document, Borrower hereby waives presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, notice of default or delinquency, notice of intent to accelerate, notice of acceleration, notice of nonpayment, notice of costs, expenses or losses and interest thereon, and notice of interest on interest and late charges. Time is of the essence with respect to every provision of this Note and the other Loan Documents. This Note shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, except

 


 

    to the extent preempted by Federal laws. This Note may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which when executed and delivered shall be deemed an original and all of which taken together shall be deemed to be one and the same Note. The terms, covenants and conditions contained herein shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the heirs, successors and assigns of the parties hereto. The foregoing sentence shall not be construed to permit Borrower to assign the Loan except as otherwise permitted in the Loan Documents. “Business Day” shall mean any day other than a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday or other day on which commercial banks in New York are authorized or required by law to close. All references in this Note to a “day” or a “date” shall be to a calendar day unless specifically referenced as a Business Day. All references in this Note to a “month,” “quarter” or “year” shall be to a calendar month, quarter or year respectively unless specifically referenced otherwise. The additional terms and conditions contained in Exhibits A, B and C. attached hereto are incorporated herein by this reference.
9.   PREPAYMENT—STEPPED. Borrower acknowledges that any prepayment of this Note will cause Lender to lose its interest rate yield on this Note and will possibly require that Lender reinvest any such prepayment amount in loans of a lesser interest rate yield (including, without limitation, in debt obligations other than first mortgage loans on commercial properties). As a consequence, Borrower agrees as follows, as an integral part of the consideration for Lender’s making the Loan:
  9.1   Voluntary Prepayment. Any voluntary prepayment of this Note: (a) is permitted in full only and not in part; and (b) may only be made after Borrower’s delivery to Lender of not less than 30 nor more than 90 days prior written notice of Borrower’s intent to prepay.
 
  9.2   Prepayment Charge.
  (a)   Prepayment Charge-Stepped. This Note may be prepaid in full (and not in part, except for partial prepayments resulting from Lender’s application of any insurance proceeds or condemnation awards to the outstanding principal balance of the Loan) only upon payment of a prepayment charge in the amount of:
  (1)   3.0% of the principal amount prepaid if prepaid during the term beginning on the Disbursement Date and continuing to, but not including, the date that is one year after the First Due Date;
 
  (2)   2.0% of the principal amount prepaid if prepaid on or after the date that is one year after the First Due Date and before the date that is two years after the First Due Date; and
 
  (3)   1.0% of the principal amount prepaid if prepaid on or after the date that is two years after the First Due Date and before the date that is three months before the Maturity Date.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, no prepayment charge shall be due in the event that Borrower refinances the Loan with Lender. There shall be no other right of prepayment.
  (b)   Additional Charge. If this Note is prepaid on any day other than a Due Date, whether such prepayment is voluntary, involuntary or upon full acceleration of the principal amount of this Note by Lender following a Default, Borrower shall pay to Lender on the prepayment date (in addition to the prepayment charge

 


 

described in Section 9.2(a) above, if then applicable, and all other sums then due and owing to Lender under this Note and the other Loan Documents), a LIBO Breakage Fee, and any termination fees pertaining to the Interest Rate Protection Agreement, together with an additional prepayment charge equal to the interest which would otherwise have accrued on the amount prepaid (had such prepayment not occurred) during the period from and including the prepayment date to and including the last day of the calendar month in which the prepayment occurred.
  (c)   Exclusion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no prepayment charge of any kind shall apply in respect to any prepayment resulting from Lender’s application of any insurance proceeds or condemnation awards to the outstanding principal balance of the Loan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrower shall not be liable for the foregoing prepayment charge if the outstanding principal amount of the Loan is prepaid with proceeds of a new loan made by Lender to Borrower.
 
  (d)   Effect of Prepayment. No partial prepayment of this Note shall change any Due Date or the method of calculation of the Monthly Payment Amount, unless Lender otherwise agrees in writing.
 
  (e)   Waiver. Borrower waives any right to prepay this Note except under the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 9 and agrees that if this Note is prepaid, Borrower shall pay the prepayment charge set forth above (to the extent applicable). Borrower hereby acknowledges that: (a) the inclusion of this waiver of prepayment rights and agreement to pay the prepayment charge (to the extent applicable) for the right to prepay this Note was separately negotiated with Lender; (b) the economic value of the various elements of this waiver and agreement was discussed; and (c) the consideration given by Borrower for the Loan was adjusted to reflect the specific waiver and agreement negotiated between Borrower and Lender and contained herein.
