ACCORDINGLY, meaning and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties agree as follows: 1. The Loans. (a) Loan. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Secured Party agrees to establish for the benefit of the Debtor a warehouse line of credit facility (hereinafter, the "Revolving Credit") which shall include cash advanced (individually, a "Loan" and, collectively, the "Loans") to the Debtor up to an aggregate principal amount of $10,000,000 (the "Commitment"), during the period commencing the date hereof and ending on the 364th day following the date hereof unless earlier terminated pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (the "Commitment Termination Date"). On or before 2:00 p.m. (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania time) at least one (1) Business Day prior to its intention to borrow a Loan from the Secured Party pursuant to the terms hereof, Debtor shall have delivered to the Secured Party (x) a written notice ("Loan Request") in the form attached as Schedule B to Exhibit B hereto, signed by an authorized officer of the General Partner specifying the requested borrowing date and the principal amount of such Loan accompanied by (y) a borrowing computation in the form satisfactory to the Secured Party specifying the Borrowing Limit for such requested Loan and the aggregate Borrowing Base outstanding on such date and a list of the Contracts to be assigned in the form of Schedule A to Exhibit B hereto. No Loan shall be made if, after giving effect thereto, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of all Loans would exceed the Borrowing Base. Each Contract offered to Secured Party in connection with a Loan request shall (i) satisfy all of the conditions attributable to an Eligible Contract (as defined below) and (ii) be in form and substance satisfactory to the Secured Party and otherwise comply with the conditions set forth in this Agreement. Each Loan shall be in the amount equal to or greater than One Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($150,000.00). Amounts borrowed and repaid may be reborrowed. (b) Note. The Loans made under the Revolving Credit shall be evidenced by a promissory note for the amount of the Commitment (the "Note") duly executed and delivered by the Debtor to the Secured Party substantially in the form of Exhibit A attached hereto. (c) Disbursement of Loans; Payments. Loans made by the Secured Party to the Debtor under the Revolving Credit shall be made available by crediting such proceeds to the Operating Account (as defined below) with the Secured Party. The Secured Party shall have the unconditional right and discretion (and the Debtor hereby authorizes the Secured Party) to charge the Operating Account for all of the Indebtedness (as defined below) as it becomes due from time to time under this Agreement. (d) Term of the Loan, Payments of Principal and Interest. Principal on Loans advanced under the Commitment shall be due, in full, on the Commitment Termination Date; provided that at no time shall the aggregate principal of outstandings exceed the Borrowing Base. If at any time such excess exists, Debtor will promptly, and in any event within two Business Days, reduce the outstanding aggregate principal balance of the Loans to an amount equal to or less than the Borrowing Base. Accrued interest on Loans advanced under the Commitment shall be paid monthly on the tenth (10th) day of each month and on the Commitment Termination Date. Loans may be voluntarily prepaid as provided in Section 9(h) hereof. (d) Interest Rate. The interest rate applicable to the Loans will be determined and adjusted using LIBOR plus two and one-half percent (2.5%) per annum. "LIBOR" means, with respect to a Unit, the rate per annum (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the next higher 1/16 of 1%) determined by Secured Party by dividing (i) the rate per annum determined by Secured Party to equal the average rate per annum at which deposits (denominated in United States dollars) in an amount similar to that Unit and with a maturity similar to the Contract Period for that Unit are offered to Secured Party at 11:00 A.M. London 2 time (or as soon thereafter as practicable) two (2) Eurodollar Banking Days prior to the first day of that Contract Period by banking institutions in any Eurodollar market selected by Secured Party by (ii) the difference of one (1) less the Reserve Percentage. "LIBOR Unit" means a Loan based on LIBOR or a fluctuating rate of interest based on a Daily LIBOR Index. "Contract Period" means, relative to a LIBOR Unit, a period that shall commence on a Eurodollar Banking Day and end one (1) day, one (1) month, two (2) months or three (3) months thereafter, provided, that (i) if any Contract Period otherwise would end on a day that is not a Eurodollar Banking Day, it shall end instead on the next following Eurodollar Banking Day unless that day falls in another calendar month, in which latter case the Contract Period shall end instead on the next preceding Eurodollar Banking Day and (ii) if any Contract Period commences on a day for which there is no numerical equivalent in the calendar month in which that Contract Period is to end, it shall end on the last Eurodollar Banking Day of that calendar month. "Eurodollar Banking Day " means any Banking Day on which banks in the London Interbank Market deal in United States dollar deposits and on which banking institutions are generally open for domestic and international business at the place where Secured Party's office is located and in New York City. "Reserve Percentage" means the percentage (expressed as a decimal) which Secured Party determines to be the maximum (but in any case less than 1.00) reserve requirement (including, without limitation, any emergency, marginal, special, or supplemental reserve requirement) prescribed for so-called "Eurocurrency liabilities" (or any other category of liabilities that includes deposits by reference to which the interest rate applicable to LIBOR Units is determined) under Regulation D (as amended from time to time) of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or under any successor regulation which Secured Party determines to be applicable, with each change in such maximum reserve requirement automatically, immediately, and without notice changing the interest rate thereafter applicable to each LIBOR Unit, it being agreed that LIBOR Units shall be deemed Eurocurrency liabilities subject to such reserve requirements without the benefit of any credit for proration, exceptions, or offsets. (e) Interest on Overdue Amounts. If Debtor shall fail to timely pay any amount due to Secured Party under any Loan, Debtor shall continue to pay Secured Party interest on such unpaid amount at the per annum rate of interest applicable to that Loan prior to such late payment, provided, however, that if such payment is not made to Secured Party within five (5) Business Days after the applicable due date, then interest upon such unpaid amount shall be paid at a per annum rate equal to three percent (3%) above LIBOR (the "Default Rate").

If Secured Party determines, in its discretion that such Contract is a Qualifying Contract and that the Obligor under the Qualifying Contract has an acceptable credit quality and Secured Party accepts such Qualifying Contract in substitution for the Contract to be prepaid (it being acknowledged that Secured Party shall have no obligation to accept such Qualifying Contract), then the substitution shall occur upon Debtor's execution and delivery to Secured Party of such documents as Secured Party shall reasonably request, including an Assignment, to collaterally assign to Secured Party all of Debtor's right, title and interest in the Qualifying Contract, the Payments arising thereunder and all related Obligor Guaranties, and a first priority perfected security interest in the related Collateral.

Upon the substitution of Qualifying Contract for a Contract subject to prepayment under this Section, Debtor shall be relieved of any further prepayment obligation with respect to the Contract originally subject to prepayment. (f) Mandatory Prepayment of All Loans. If an Event of Default occurs and is continuing, then upon demand by Secured Party Debtor shall immediately make a mandatory prepayment of all of the Loans by paying to Secured Party the aggregate Prepayment Amount of each of the Loans, determined as of the date of prepayment. (g) Determining Prepayment Amounts. The "Prepayment Amount" attributable to any Contract covered by a Loan shall be an amount equal to a pro rata portion of the unpaid principal and accrued interest on such Loan based on a ratio in which the Borrowing Limit of the Contract shall be the numerator and the aggregate Borrowing Limits of all Contracts covered by such Loan shall be the denominator.
