Re: $1,700,000 borrowing base line of credit

Gentlemen or Ladies:

          Citibank, N.A. (“Citibank”) is pleased to advise you it holds available for International Smart Sourcing, Inc. (the “Borrower”), a corporation organized and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware, a borrowing base line of credit (the “Line”) in the amount of $1,700,000, subject to the following terms and conditions:

          1.          Description of the Line:

                       Loans provided under the Line shall be evidenced by Citibank’s Master Note (the “Note”) in the amount of the Line, which Note shall bear interest at a rate equal to the prime rate of interest as published in the Money Rates column of the Wall Street Journal from time to time (the “Prime Rate”). Any change in the Prime Rate shall take effect on the date of the change in the Prime Rate.

                       Interest on the unpaid principal balance of the Note from time to time outstanding shall be payable monthly in arrears commencing on the first day of the month following the date of the first advance under the Note. Any advance under the Line made by Citibank in its discretion shall be in an amount not less than $25,000 and the Borrower may prepay, in part or in full, at any time, any loans outstanding under the Line in increments of not less than 25,000 without premium or penalty.

                       Notwithstanding any provisions herein to the contrary, the maximum availability under the Line shall not exceed an amount determined with application to the following borrowing base formula:

                       The sum of (i) eighty percent (80%) of the Borrower’s “Eligible Accounts Receivable”, that is all accounts of the Borrower dated not more than ninety (90) days from their respective invoice dates; excluding: (a) those accounts deemed ineligible by Citibank in its sole reasonable discretion, (b) other than Allen Field Co., Inc. accounts due from affiliates, officers and employees, (c) contra accounts, (d) foreign accounts, (e) accounts due from bankruptcies, (f) accounts due on consignment and (g) all accounts of any account debtors if fifty percent (50%) or more than 90 days past due and (ii) the lesser of fifty percent (50%) of the Borrower’s “Eligible Inventory” or $400,000 (the “Borrowing Limit”). Terms used in this paragraph shall have the meaning given to such terms in the Borrowing Base Certificate, identified herein. The aggregate of all advances and loans under the Line shall at no time exceed the availability under the Borrowing Limit and the Borrower shall pay to Citibank promptly after demand such amounts as may be necessary from time to time to reduce the aggregate of all such loans and advances to an amount not in excess of the Borrowing Limit.
