CREDIT FACILITY AGREEMENT
JOHN GUIDON AND BRUCE GLADSTONE
EFFECTIVE AS OF NOVEMBER 1, 2002
CREDIT FACILITY AGREEMENT
This Credit Facility Agreement (the "Agreement") is effective as of the
1st day of November, 2002 by and between John Guidon ("Guidon") and Bruce
Gladstone ("Gladstone"), (the "Lenders") and 2KSounds, Inc., a California
Corporation (the "Borrower"). Lenders and Borrower are collectively referred to
hereinafter as the "Parties".
WHEREAS, Guidon owns 84,568,924 shares of the issued and outstanding
capital stock of Borrower; and,
WHEREAS, Gladstone owns 15,080,173 shares of the issued and outstanding
capital stock of Borrower; and,
WHEREAS, the parties wish to make certain agreements regarding
monies loaned by Lenders to Borrower.
NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants and promises
set forth herein, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the Parties
agree as follows:
1. Borrowing; Amount.
Pursuant to this Agreement, the Lenders agree to make loans to Borrower
(a "Borrowing"), at any time and from time to time on and after the date hereof
and until October 31, 2004 (the "Maturity Date") in an aggregate amount not to
exceed $1,000,000.00 ("Lender's Commitment"). The Lender's commitment shall be
at the ratio of 70/30 between Guidon and Gladstone, on a dollar for dollar
basis. Thus, by way of example, Guidon's commitment shall be an amount not to
exceed $700,000 and Gladstone's commitment shall be an amount not to exceed
$300,000. As a further example, if Borrower requests $100,000, Guidon shall
provide $70,000 and Gladstone shall provide $30,000. The Borrower may borrow,
pay or prepay any amount up to the Lender's Commitment prior to the Maturity
Date as set forth herein.
2. Borrowing Procedure.
In order to request a loan, the Borrower shall hand deliver or telecopy
to the Lenders a written request not later than 10:30 a.m., Pacific time, three
business days prior a proposed Borrowing. If the Borrower does not specify an
interest period for the Borrowing, then the Borrower will have deemed to have
selected an interest period ending immediately prior to the Maturity Date. The
Borrower may not select a Borrowing if the interest period requested in
connection therewith would end after the Maturity Date.
3. Repayment of Loans; Evidence of Debt.
The Borrower agrees that the outstanding principal balance of each
Borrowing shall be payable on the Maturity Date. Each Borrowing shall bear
interest on the outstanding principal thereof in accordance with Section 4. The
Lenders may maintain an account or accounts evidencing the indebtedness of the
Borrower and the principal amount and interest due and payable under such loan
and the amount of any sum received from the Borrower in payment therefor. The
entries made in such account by the Lenders shall, to the extent permitted by
applicable law, be prima facie evidence of the amount and existence of a
Borrowing. The Borrower agrees that upon notice by the Lenders, after the
initial Borrowing, to the Borrower to the effect that a promissory note or other
evidence of indebtedness is required, the Borrower shall promptly execute and
deliver to the Lenders a promissory note or notes, payable to the order of the
4. Interest on Loans; Default Interest.
A Borrowing shall bear interest (computed on the basis of the actual
number of days elapsed) at the annual rate of seven percent (7%). Unless
otherwise specified, interest on each Borrowing shall be due and payable on the
Maturity Date. If the Borrower shall default in the payment of principal of or
any interest on any Borrowing or any other amount becoming due hereunder, the
Borrower shall on demand from time to time from the Lenders pay interest, to the
extent permitted by law, on such defaulted amount up to the date of actual
payment at a rate of ten (10%) percent per annum (computed on the basis of
actual number of days elapsed).
The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to
prepay any Borrowing, in whole or in part, upon giving telecopy notice to the
Lenders prior to or on the same business day of prepayment. The Borrower shall
exercise reasonable efforts to repay the Borrowing prior to the maturity date.
Each notice of prepayment from the Borrower shall specify the prepayment date
and the principal amount of each Borrowing to be prepaid. Each notice of
prepayment shall be irrevocable and shall commit the Borrower to prepay such
Borrowing (or portion thereof) by the date stated therein. Prepayment under this
Section 5 need not include accrued interest on the principal amount being
The Borrower shall indemnify the Lenders against any out-of-pocket loss
or expense which the Lenders may sustain or incur as a consequence of (a) any
default by the Borrower in payment or prepayment of the principal amount of any
Borrowing or any part thereof or interest accrued thereon, as and when due and
payable (at the due date thereof, whether by scheduled maturity, acceleration,
irrevocable notice of prepayment or otherwise) or (b) the occurrence of any
Event of Default.
Any and all payments by the Borrower hereunder shall be made, free and
clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies,
imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities with respect
thereto imposed by the United States or any political subdivision or taxing
authority thereof, excluding taxes imposed on Lender's (or any transferee's or
assignee's, including a participation holder's (any such entity a "Transferee"))
net income and franchise taxes imposed on the Lenders (or Transferee) by the
United States or any political subdivision or taxing authority thereof (all such
nonexcluded taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges, withholdings and
liabilities being hereinafter referred to as "Taxes"). If the Borrower shall be
required by law to deduct any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable
hereunder to the Lenders (or any Transferee), (i) the sum payable shall be
increased by the amount necessary so that after making all required deductions
such Lenders (or Transferee) (as the case may be) shall receive an amount equal
to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the
Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full
amount deducted to the relevant taxing authority or other Governmental Authority
in accordance with applicable law. In addition, the Borrower agrees to pay any
present or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other excise or property
taxes, charges or similar levies which arise from any payment made hereunder or
from the execution, delivery or registration of, or otherwise with respect to,
this Agreement imposed by the United States or any political subdivision or
taxing authority thereof (hereinafter referred to as "Other Taxes").
