5.Ratification of Loan Documents. Except as provided for herein, all terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents remain in full force and effect. Borrower hereby ratifies, confirms, and reaffirms all representations, warranties, and covenants contained therein and acknowledges and agrees that the Obligations, as modified hereby, are and continue to be secured by the Collateral. Borrower warrants and represents to Wells Fargo that as of the date hereof, no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.
