(c)    Not more than twice per calendar year, the Borrower may permanently reduce the amount of the Facility No. 1 Commitment upon at least 30 days prior written notice to the Bank, which notice shall specify the amount of the reduction and shall be irrevocable once given. Each reduction shall be in a minimum amount of $1,000,000, or an increment of $1,000,000 in excess thereof.
2.2    Availability Period. The Line of Credit is available between the date of this Agreement and September 7, 2019, or such earlier date as the availability may terminate as provided in this Agreement (the “Facility No. 1 Expiration Date”).
2.3    Repayment Terms.
(a)    Borrower will pay interest on September 30, 2016, and then on the last day of each quarter thereafter until payment in full of any principal outstanding under this facility.
(b)    The Borrower will repay in full any principal, interest or other charges outstanding under this facility no later than the Facility No. 1 Expiration Date. Any interest

5



period for an optional interest rate (as described below) shall expire no later than the Facility No. 1 Expiration Date.
2.4    Interest Rate.
(a)    The interest rate that will accrue on the principal amount outstanding under the Line of Credit on any day is a floating rate per year equal to the lesser of (i) the LIBOR Daily Floating Rate plus 2.25%, or (ii) the maximum lawful rate of interest permitted under applicable usury laws, now or hereafter enacted (the “Maximum Rate”).
(b)    The LIBOR Daily Floating Rate is a fluctuating rate of interest which can change on each banking day. The rate will be adjusted on each banking day to equal the London Interbank Offered Rate (or a comparable or successor rate which is approved by the Bank) for U.S. Dollar deposits for delivery on the date in question for a one month term beginning on that date. The Bank will use the London Interbank Offered Rate as published by Bloomberg (or other commercially available source providing quotations of such rate as selected by the Bank from time to time) as determined at approximately 11:00 a.m. London time two (2) London Banking Days prior to the date in question, as adjusted from time to time in the Bank’s sole discretion for reserve requirements, deposit insurance assessment rates and other regulatory costs. If such rate is not available at such time for any reason, then the rate will be determined by such alternate method as reasonably selected by the Bank. If at any time the LIBOR Daily Floating Rate is less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement.
2.5    Optional Interest Rate. Instead of the interest rate based on the rate stated in the paragraph entitled “Interest Rate” above, the Borrower may elect the optional interest rates listed below for this Facility No. 1 during interest periods agreed to by the Bank and the Borrower. In no event shall the optional interest rate exceed the Maximum Rate. The optional interest rates shall be subject to the terms and conditions described later in this Agreement. Any principal amount bearing interest at an optional rate under this Agreement is referred to as a “Portion.” The following optional interest rate is available:
(a)    The LIBOR Rate plus 2.25 percentage points.
2.6    Letters of Credit.
(a)    As a subfacility under the Line of Credit, during the availability period, the Bank agrees from time to time to issue or cause an affiliate to issue commercial and standby letters of credit for the account of the Borrower (each, a “Letter of Credit” and collectively, “Letters of Credit”); provided however, that the aggregate drawn and undrawn amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit shall not at any time exceed the LC Sublimit. The aggregate drawn and undrawn amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit and the principal amount outstanding under the Line of Credit shall not at any time exceed the Facility No. 1 Commitment. The form and substance of each Letter of Credit shall be subject to approval by the Bank, in its sole discretion. Each Letter of Credit shall be issued for a term, as designated by the Borrower, not to exceed three hundred sixty-five (365) days; provided

6



however, that no Letter of Credit shall have an expiration date subsequent to the Facility No. 1 Expiration Date. Standby letters of credit may include a provision providing that their expiry date will automatically be extended each year for an additional one year period unless the Bank delivers written notice to the contrary provided, however, that each letter of credit must include a final expiry date which will not be subject to automatic extension. The undrawn amount of all Letters of Credit shall be reserved under the Line of Credit and such amount shall not be available for borrowings. Each Letter of Credit shall be subject to the additional terms and conditions of the Letter of Credit agreements, applications and any related documents required by the Bank in connection with the issuance of Letters of Credit. At the option of the Bank, any drawing paid under a Letter of Credit may be deemed an advance under the Line of Credit and shall be repaid by the Borrower in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement applicable to such advances; provided however, that if advances under the Line of Credit are not available pursuant to this Agreement, for any reason, at the time any drawing is paid, then the Borrower shall immediately pay to the Bank the full amount drawn, together with interest from the date such drawing is paid to the date such amount is fully repaid by the Borrower, at the rate of interest applicable to advances under the Line of Credit. In such event the Borrower agrees that the Bank, in its sole discretion, may debit any account maintained by the Borrower with the Bank for the amount of any such drawing. The Borrower agrees to deposit in a cash collateral account with the Bank an amount equal to the aggregate outstanding undrawn face amount of all letters of credit which remain outstanding on the Facility No. 1 Expiration Date. The Borrower grants a security interest in such cash collateral account to the Bank. Amounts held in such cash collateral account shall be applied by the Bank to the payment of drafts drawn under such letters of credit and to the obligations and liabilities of the Borrower to the Bank, in such order of application as the Bank may in its sole discretion elect.
(b)    There are no letters of credit outstanding from the Bank for the account of the Borrower as of the date of this Agreement.
(c)    The Borrower shall pay the Bank a non-refundable fee equal to 1.0% (per annum) of the outstanding undrawn amount of each standby letter of credit, payable quarterly in advance, for such quarter (or if such letter of credit is scheduled to terminate during such quarter, for the portion of such quarter that such letter of credit is scheduled to be outstanding) calculated on the basis of the face amount outstanding on the day the fee is calculated.
ARTICLE III
Optional Interest Rate

3.1    Optional Rate.
(a)    Each optional interest rate is a rate per year. Interest will be paid on the last day of each interest period until payment in full of any principal outstanding under this Agreement. No Portion will be converted to a different interest rate during the applicable interest period. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under this Agreement, the Bank may terminate the availability of optional interest rates for interest periods commencing

7



after the Event of Default occurs. At the end of any interest period, the interest rate accruing on the applicable Portion will revert to the rate stated in the paragraph entitled “Interest Rate” above, unless the Borrower has designated another optional interest rate for such Portion. Prepayments of outstanding advances shall be applied first to advances accruing interest at the LIBOR Daily Floating Rate until repaid in full and next to the Portion with the next expiring interest period.
(b)    The election of LIBOR Rates shall be subject to the following terms and requirements:
(i)    The interest period during which the LIBOR Rate will be in effect will be one, two, or three months. The first day of the interest period must be a day other than a Saturday or a Sunday on which banks are open for business in New York and London and dealing in offshore dollars (a “LIBOR Banking Day”). The last day of the interest period and the actual number of days during the interest period will be determined by the Bank using the practices of the London inter-bank market.
(ii)    Each LIBOR Rate Portion will be for an amount not less than One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000).
(c)    The “LIBOR Rate” means the interest rate determined by the following formula. (All amounts in the calculation will be determined by the Bank as of the first day of the interest period.)
LIBOR Rate =      LIBOR        
(1.00 - Reserve Percentage)
Where,

(i)    “LIBOR” means, for any applicable interest period, the rate per annum equal to the London Interbank Offered Rate (or a comparable or successor rate which is approved by the Bank), as published by Bloomberg (or other commercially available source providing quotations of such rate as selected by the Bank from time to time) at approximately 11:00 a.m. London time two (2) London Banking Days before the commencement of the interest period, for U.S. Dollar deposits (for delivery on the first day of such interest period) with a term equivalent to such interest period. If such rate is not available at such time for any reason, then the rate for that interest period will be determined by such alternate method as reasonably selected by the Bank. A “London Banking Day” is a day on which banks in London are open for business and dealing in offshore dollars. If at any time LIBOR is less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement.
(ii)    “Reserve Percentage” means the total of the maximum reserve percentages for determining the reserves to be maintained by member banks of the Federal Reserve System for Eurocurrency Liabilities, as defined in Federal Reserve Board Regulation D, rounded upward to the nearest 1/100 of one percent. The

8



percentage will be expressed as a decimal, and will include, but not be limited to, marginal, emergency, supplemental, special, and other reserve percentages.
(d)    The Borrower shall irrevocably request a LIBOR Rate Portion no later than 12:00 noon Houston, Texas time on the LIBOR Banking Day preceding the day on which the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate will be set, as specified above. For example, if there are no intervening holidays or weekend days in any of the relevant locations, the request must be made at least three days before the LIBOR Rate takes effect.
(e)    The Bank will have no obligation to accept an election for a LIBOR Rate Portion if any of the following described events has occurred and is continuing:
(i)    Dollar deposits in the principal amount, and for periods equal to the interest period, of a LIBOR Rate Portion are not available in the London inter-bank market;
(ii)    the LIBOR Rate does not accurately reflect the cost of a LIBOR Rate Portion; or
(iii)    adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the LIBOR Rate for any requested interest period.
(f)    Each prepayment of a LIBOR Rate Portion, whether voluntary, by reason of acceleration or otherwise, will be accompanied by the amount of accrued interest on the amount prepaid and a prepayment fee as described below. A "prepayment" is a payment of an amount on a date earlier than the scheduled payment date for such amount as required by this Agreement.
(g)    The prepayment fee shall be in an amount sufficient to compensate the Bank for any loss, cost or expense incurred by it as a result of the prepayment, including any loss of anticipated profits and any loss or expense arising from the liquidation or reemployment of funds obtained by it to maintain such Portion or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained. The Borrower shall also pay any customary administrative fees charged by the Bank in connection with the foregoing. For purposes of this paragraph, the Bank shall be deemed to have funded such Portion by a matching deposit or other borrowing in the applicable interbank market, whether or not such Portion was in fact so funded.
ARTICLE IV
Collateral
4.1    Personal Property. The personal property listed below now owned or owned in the future by the Borrower will secure the Borrower’s obligations to the Bank under this Agreement. The collateral is further defined in a security agreement(s) executed by the Borrower. In addition, all personal property collateral owned by the Borrower securing this Agreement shall also secure all other present and future obligations of the Borrower to the Bank and to any affiliate of the Bank

(b)    The Borrower may terminate this direct debit arrangement at any time by sending written notice to the Bank at the address specified at the end of this Agreement.
5.4    Borrower’s Instructions. Subject to the terms, conditions and procedures stated elsewhere in this Agreement, the Bank may honor instructions for advances or repayments and any other instructions under this Agreement given by the Borrower (if an individual), or by any one of the individuals the Bank reasonably believes is authorized to sign loan agreements on behalf of the Borrower, or any other individual(s) designated by any one of such authorized signers (each an “Authorized Individual”). The Bank may honor any such instructions made by any one of the Authorized Individuals, whether such instructions are given in writing or by telephone, telefax or Internet and intranet websites designated by the Bank with respect to separate products or services offered by the Bank.
5.5    Banking Days. Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, a banking day is a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks are authorized to close, or are in fact closed, in Texas, and, if such day relates to amounts bearing interest at an offshore rate (if any), means any such day on which dealings in dollar deposits are conducted among banks in the offshore dollar interbank market. All payments and disbursements which would be due or which are received on a day which is not a banking day will be due or applied, as applicable, on the next banking day.
5.6    Interest Calculation. Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, all interest and fees, if any, will be computed on the basis of a 360-day year and the actual number of days elapsed. This results in more interest or a higher fee than if a 365-day year is used. Installments of principal which are not paid when due under this Agreement shall continue to bear interest until paid. To the extent that any calculation of interest or any fee required to be paid under this Agreement shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed zero for purposes of this Agreement.
5.7    Default Rate. Upon the occurrence of any default or after maturity or after judgment has been rendered on any obligation under this Agreement, all amounts outstanding under this Agreement, including any unpaid interest, fees, or costs, will at the option of the Bank bear interest at a rate which is the lesser of (i) the Maximum Rate or (ii) 2.00 percentage point(s) higher than the rate of interest otherwise provided under this Agreement (the “Default Rate”). This may result in compounding of interest. This will not constitute a waiver of any default.

11



5.8    Taxes. If any payments to the Bank under this Agreement are made from outside the United States, the Borrower will not deduct any foreign taxes from any payments it makes to the Bank. If any such taxes are imposed on any payments made by the Borrower (including payments under this paragraph), the Borrower will pay the taxes and will also pay to the Bank, at the time interest is paid, any additional amount which the Bank specifies as necessary to preserve the after-tax yield the Bank would have received if such taxes had not been imposed. The Borrower will confirm that it has paid the taxes by giving the Bank official tax receipts (or notarized copies) within thirty (30) days after the due date.

If, in the Bank’s opinion, any breach under this subparagraph (b) is capable of being remedied, the breach will not be considered an Event of Default under this Agreement for a period of thirty (30) days after the date on which the Bank gives written notice of the breach to the Borrower.
10.4    Cross-default. Any default occurs under any agreement in connection with any credit the Borrower (or any Obligor) has obtained from anyone else or which the Borrower (or any Obligor) has guaranteed in the amount of Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) or more in the aggregate if the default consists of failing to make a payment when due or gives the other lender the right to accelerate the obligation.
10.5    False Information. The Borrower or any Obligor has given the Bank materially false or misleading information or representations.
10.6    Bankruptcy/Receivers. The Borrower, any Obligor, or any general partner of any Obligor files a bankruptcy petition, a bankruptcy petition is filed against any of the foregoing parties and such petition is not dismissed within a period of sixty (60) days after the filing, or the Borrower, any Obligor, or any general partner of any Obligor makes a general assignment for the benefit of creditors; or a receiver or similar official is appointed for a substantial portion of Borrower’s or any Obligor’s business; or the business is terminated, or such Obligor is liquidated or dissolved.
10.7    Lien Priority. The Bank fails to have an enforceable first lien (except for any prior liens to which the Bank has consented in writing) on or security interest in any property given as security for this Agreement (or any guaranty).
10.8    Judgments. Any notice of judgment lien is filed against the Borrower or any Obligor; or a notice of levy and/or of a writ of attachment or execution, or other like process, is served against

24



the assets of the Borrower or any Obligor in an aggregate amount of Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) or more that is not bonded or otherwise stayed within thirty (30) days.
10.9    Material Adverse Change. Since the date of the most recent audited financial statements delivered to the Bank pursuant to Section 8.2, a material adverse change occurs, or is reasonably likely to occur, in the Borrower’s (or any Obligor’s) business condition (financial or otherwise), operations or properties, or ability to repay the credit (a “Material Adverse Effect”); or an impairment of the ability of Borrower to perform any of its payment or other material obligations under any Loan Document; or a material impairment of the ability of Bank to enforce any of Borrower’s material obligations or any of Bank’s rights under any Loan Document; or a material adverse effect upon the legality, validity, binding effect or enforceability against Borrower of any Loan document to which it is a party.
10.10    Government Action. Any government authority takes action that the Bank believes materially adversely affects the Borrower’s or any Obligor’s financial condition or ability to repay and such action is not effectively stayed within thirty (30) days.

A reportable event occurs under Section 4043(c) of ERISA, or any Plan termination (or commencement of proceedings to terminate a Plan) or the full or partial withdrawal from a Plan under Section 4041 or 4042 of ERISA occurs; provided such event or events could reasonably be expected, in the judgment of the Bank, to have a Material Adverse Effect.
ARTICLE XI
Enforcing this Agreement; Miscellaneous
11.1    Accounting Principles and Financial Computations. Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, all financial information provided to the Bank and all financial covenants will be made under generally accepted accounting principles, consistently applied (“GAAP”).
11.2    Governing Law. Except to the extent that any law of the United States may apply, this Agreement shall be governed and interpreted according to the laws of Texas (the “Governing Law State”), without regard to any choice of law, rules or principles to the contrary. Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to limit or otherwise affect any rights or remedies of the Bank under federal law.
11.3    Venue and Jurisdiction. The Borrower agrees that any action or suit against the Bank arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be filed in federal court or state court located in the Governing Law State. The Borrower agrees that the Bank shall not be deemed to have waived its rights to enforce this section by filing an action or suit against the Borrower in a venue outside of the Governing Law State. If the Bank does commence an action or suit arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the Borrower agrees that the case may be filed in federal court or state court in the Governing Law State. The Bank reserves the right to commence an action or suit in any other jurisdiction where the Borrower, any Guarantor, or any collateral has any presence or is located. The Borrower consents to personal jurisdiction and venue in such forum selected by the Bank and waives any right to contest jurisdiction and venue and the convenience of any such forum. The provisions of this section are material inducements to the Bank’s acceptance of this Agreement.

25



11.4    Maximum Rate. It is the intention of the parties to comply with applicable usury laws. The parties agree that the total amount of interest contracted for, charged, collected or received by the Bank under this Agreement shall not exceed the Maximum Rate. To the extent, if any, that Chapter 303 of the Texas Finance Code (the “Code”) is relevant to the Bank for purposes of determining the Maximum Rate, the parties elect to determine the Maximum Rate under the Code pursuant to the “weekly ceiling” from time to time in effect, as referred to and defined in § 303.001-303.016 of the Code; subject, however, to any right the Bank subsequently may have under applicable law to change the method of determining the Maximum Rate. Notwithstanding any contrary provisions contained herein, (a) the Maximum Rate shall be calculated on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed over a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be; (b) in determining whether the interest hereunder exceeds interest at the Maximum Rate, the total amount of interest shall be spread throughout the entire term of this Agreement until its payment in full; (c) if at any time the interest rate chargeable under this Agreement would exceed the Maximum Rate, thereby causing the interest payable under this Agreement to be limited to the Maximum Rate, then any subsequent reductions in the interest rate(s) shall not reduce the rate of interest charged under this Agreement below the Maximum Rate until the total amount of interest accrued from and after the date of this Agreement equals the amount of interest which would have accrued if the interest rate(s) had at all times been in effect; (d) if the Bank ever charges or receives anything of value which is deemed to be interest under applicable Texas law, and if the occurrence of any event, including acceleration of maturity of obligations owing to the Bank, should cause such interest to exceed the maximum lawful amount, any amount which exceeds interest at the Maximum Rate shall be applied to the reduction of the unpaid principal balance under this Agreement or any other indebtedness owed to the Bank by the Borrower, and if this Agreement and such other indebtedness are paid in full, any remaining excess shall be paid to the Borrower; and (e) Chapter 346 of the Code shall not be applicable to this Agreement or the indebtedness outstanding hereunder.
11.5    Successors and Assigns. This Agreement is binding on the Borrower’s and the Bank’s successors and assignees. The Borrower agrees that it may not assign this Agreement without the Bank’s prior consent. The Bank may sell participations in or assign this loan, and may exchange information about the Borrower (including, without limitation, any information regarding any hazardous substances) with actual or potential participants or assignees.
11.6    Waiver of Jury Trial. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER DOCUMENT EXECUTED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY OR THEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (a) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PERSON HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PERSON WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER, (b) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER DOCUMENTS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND

26



CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION AND (c) CERTIFIES THAT THIS WAIVER IS KNOWINGLY, WILLINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY MADE.
11.7    Waiver of Class Actions. The terms “Claim” or “Claims” refer to any disputes, controversies, claims, counterclaims, allegations of liability, theories of damage, or defenses between Bank of America, N.A., its subsidiaries and affiliates, on the one hand, and the other parties to this Agreement, on the other hand (all of the foregoing each being referred to as a “Party” and collectively as the “Parties”). Whether in state court, federal court, or any other venue, jurisdiction, or before any tribunal, the Parties agree that all aspects of litigation and trial of any Claim will take place without resort to any form of class or representative action. Thus the Parties may only bring Claims against each other in an individual capacity and waive any right they may have to do so as a class representative or a class member in a class or representative action. THIS CLASS ACTION WAIVER PRECLUDES ANY PARTY FROM PARTICIPATING IN OR BEING REPRESENTED IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION REGARDING A CLAIM.
11.8    Severability; Waivers. If any part of this Agreement is not enforceable, the rest of the Agreement may be enforced. The Bank retains all rights, even if it makes a loan after default. If the Bank waives a default, it may enforce a later default. Any consent or waiver under this Agreement must be in writing.
11.9    Expenses.
(a)    The Borrower shall pay to the Bank immediately upon demand the full amount of all payments, advances, charges, costs and expenses, including reasonable and documented out of pocket attorneys’ fees, expended or incurred by the Bank in connection with (i) the negotiation and preparation of this Agreement and any related agreements, the Bank’s continued administration of this Agreement and such related agreements, and the preparation of any amendments and waivers related to this Agreement or such related agreements, (ii) filing, recording, search, and documentation fees with respect to any collateral and books and records of the Borrower or any Obligor, (iii) the Bank’s increased costs arising from any changes in law after the date of this Agreement which are reasonably allocated by the Bank to this Agreement or any credit outstanding under this Agreement as demonstrated in a written notice detailing such costs, (iv) costs or expenses required to be paid by the Borrower or any Obligor that are paid, incurred or advanced by the Bank, and (v) fees or expenses for any appraisal, field examination, and collateral audit of the Borrower’s property ordered or incurred by the Bank while an Event of Default exists and is continuing. Unless an Event of Default exists, appraisals, field examinations or collateral audits of the Borrower’s property will be conducted at the Bank’s cost and expense, and no more frequently than annually.
(b)    The Borrower will indemnify and hold the Bank harmless from any loss, liability, damages, judgments, and costs of any kind relating to or arising directly or indirectly out of (i) this Agreement or any document required hereunder, (ii) any credit extended or committed by the Bank to the Borrower hereunder, (iii) any claim, whether well-founded or otherwise, that there has been a failure to comply with any law regulating the Borrower’s

27



sales or leases to or performance of services for debtors obligated upon the Borrower’s accounts receivable and disclosures in connection therewith, and (iv) any litigation or proceeding related to or arising out of this Agreement, any such document, any such credit, or any such claim, including, without limitation, any act resulting from the Bank complying with instructions the Bank reasonably believes are made by any Authorized Individual, other than any such loss, liability, damage, judgment or cost that is determined in a final, non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from the Bank’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. This paragraph will survive this Agreement’s termination, and will benefit the Bank and its officers, employees, and agents. BORROWER AND BANK EXPRESSLY INTEND THAT THE FOREGOING INDEMNITY SHALL COVER, AND THAT BORROWER SHALL INDEMNIFY AND HOLD THE INDEMNIFIED PARTIES HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST, COSTS, EXPENSES AND LOSSES SUFFERED AS A RESULT OF THE NEGLIGENCE OF ANY INDEMNIFIED PARTY.
(c)    The Borrower shall reimburse the Bank for any reasonable costs and the Bank’s reasonable out of pocket attorneys’ fees incurred by the Bank in connection with (i) the enforcement or preservation of the Bank’s rights and remedies and/or the collection of any obligations of the Borrower which become due to the Bank and in connection with any “workout” or restructuring, and (ii) the prosecution or defense of any action in any way related to this Agreement, the credit provided hereunder or any related agreements, including without limitation, any action for declaratory relief, whether incurred at the trial or appellate level, in an arbitration proceeding or otherwise, and including any of the foregoing incurred in connection with any bankruptcy proceeding (including without limitation, any adversary proceeding, contested matter or motion brought by the Bank or any other person) relating to the Borrower or any other person or entity.
11.10    Reserved.
11.11    Set-Off. Upon and after the occurrence of an Event of Default under this Agreement, (a) the Borrower hereby authorizes the Bank, at any time and from time to time, without notice, which is hereby expressly waived by the Borrower, and whether or not the Bank shall have declared any credit subject hereto to be due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof, to set off against, and to appropriate and apply to the payment of, the Borrower’s Obligations (whether matured or unmatured, fixed or contingent, liquidated or unliquidated), any and all amounts owing by the Bank to the Borrower (whether payable in U.S. dollars or any other currency, whether matured or unmatured, and in the case of deposits, whether general or special (except trust and escrow accounts), time or demand and however evidenced), and (b) pending any such action, to the extent necessary, to hold such amounts as collateral to secure such Obligations and to return as unpaid for insufficient funds any and all checks and other items drawn against any deposits so held as the Bank, in its sole discretion, may elect. The Borrower hereby grants to the Bank a security interest in all deposits and accounts maintained with the Bank to secure the payment of all Obligations of the Borrower to the Bank under this Agreement and all agreements, instruments and documents related to this Agreement. “Obligations” means all obligations, now or hereafter existing, of the Borrower to the

28



Bank under this Agreement and under any other agreement or instrument executed in connection with this Agreement.
11.12    One Agreement. This Agreement and any related security or other agreements required by this Agreement constitute the entire agreement between the Borrower and the Bank with respect to each credit subject hereto and supersede all prior negotiations, communications, discussions and correspondence concerning the subject matter hereof. In the event of any conflict between this Agreement and any other agreements required by this Agreement, this Agreement will prevail.
11.13    Notices. Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement or in another agreement between the Bank and the Borrower, all notices required under this Agreement shall be personally delivered or sent by first class mail, postage prepaid, or by overnight courier, to the addresses on the signature page of this Agreement, or sent by facsimile to the fax numbers listed on the signature page, or to such other addresses as the Bank and the Borrower may specify from time to time in writing. Notices and other communications shall be effective (i) if mailed, upon the earlier of receipt or five (5) days after deposit in the U.S. mail, first class, postage prepaid, (ii) if telecopied, when transmitted, or (iii) if hand-delivered, by courier or otherwise (including telegram, lettergram or mailgram), when delivered.
11.14    Headings. Article and paragraph headings are for reference only and shall not affect the interpretation or meaning of any provisions of this Agreement.
11.15    Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which, when so executed, shall be deemed to be an original, and all of which when taken together shall constitute one and the same Agreement. Delivery of an executed counterpart of this Agreement (or of any agreement or document required by this Agreement and any amendment to this Agreement) by telecopy or other electronic imaging means shall be as effective as delivery of a manually executed counterpart of this Agreement; provided, however, that the telecopy or other electronic image shall be promptly followed by an original if required by the Bank.
11.16    Borrower Information; Reporting to Credit Bureaus. The Borrower authorizes the Bank at any time to verify or check any information given by the Borrower to the Bank, check the Borrower’s credit references, verify employment, and obtain credit reports. The Borrower agrees that the Bank shall have the right at all times to disclose and report to credit reporting agencies and credit rating agencies such information pertaining to the Borrower and/or all guarantors as is consistent with the Bank’s policies and practices from time to time in effect.
11.17    Customary Advertising Material. The Borrower and each Obligor consent to the publication by the Bank of customary advertising material relating to the transactions contemplated hereby using the name, product photographs, logo or trademark of the Borrower or such Obligor.
11.18    Amendments. This Agreement amends and restates the Prior Credit Agreement in its entirety. This Agreement may be amended or modified only in writing signed by each party hereto.

29



11.19    Disposition of Schedules and Reports. The Bank will not be obligated to return any schedules, invoices, statements, budgets, forecasts, reports or other papers delivered by the Borrower. The Bank will destroy or otherwise dispose of such materials at such time as the Bank, in its discretion, deems appropriate.
11.20    Waiver of Confidentiality. If the Bank would like to discuss the Borrower’s financial affairs and business operations with any accountants, auditors, business consultants, or other professional advisors employed by the Borrower, at the request of the Bank, the Borrower shall promptly arrange a meeting or conference call among the Bank, the Borrower and such parties to facilitate such discussions.
11.21    Notice of Final Agreement. THIS WRITTEN LOAN AGREEMENT AND THE LOAN DOCUMENTS EXECUTED IN CONNECTION HEREWITH REPRESENT THE FINAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND MAY NOT BE CONTRADICTED BY EVIDENCE OF PRIOR, CONTEMPORANEOUS OR SUBSEQUENT ORAL AGREEMENTS OF THE PARTIES.
