|Borrower:||Electromed, Inc.||Lender:||Venture Bank|
|500 Sixth Avenue NW||6210 Wayzata Boulevard|
|New Prague, MN 56071||Golden Valley, MN 55416|
|Principal Amount: $1,300,000.00||Date of Note: December 18, 2013|
PROMISE TO PAY. Electromed, Inc. (“Borrower”) promises to pay to Venture Bank (“Lender”), or order, in lawful money of the United States of America, the principal amount of One Million Three Hundred Thousand & 00/100 Dollars ($1,300,000.00), together with interest on the unpaid principal balance from December 18, 2013, calculated as described in the “INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD” paragraph using an interest rate of 5.000% per annum based on a year of 360 days, until paid in full. The interest rate may change under the terms and conditions of the “INTEREST AFTER DEFAULT” section.
PAYMENT. Borrower will pay this loan in 59 regular payments of $8,631.55 each and one irregular last payment estimated at $1,094,913.64. Borrower’s first payment is due January 18, 2014, and all subsequent payments are due on the same day of each month after that. Borrower’s final payment will be due on December 18, 2018, and will be for all principal and all accrued interest not yet paid. Payments include principal and interest. Unless otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid interest; then to principal; then to any unpaid collection costs; and then to any late charges. Borrower will pay Lender at Lender’s address shown above or at such other place as Lender may designate in writing.
INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD. Interest on this Note is computed on a 365/360 basis; that is, by applying the ratio of the interest rate over a year of 360 days, multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days the principal balance is outstanding. All interest payable under this Note is computed using this method. This calculation method results in a higher effective interest rate than the numeric interest rate stated in this Note.
PREPAYMENT PENALTY. Borrower agrees that all loan fees and other prepaid finance charges are earned fully as of the date of the loan and will not be subject to refund upon early payment (whether voluntary or as a result of default), except as otherwise required by law. Upon prepayment of this Note, Lender is entitled to the following prepayment penalty: In the event of a prepayment of more than 20% of the original principal amount of the loan within a twelve month period due to loan being refinanced at another institution, a prepayment penalty shall be assessed as follows:
1) If the prepayment occurs on or before the first anniversary date of the loan, the prepayment penalty will equal five percent (5%) of the principal amount prepaid.
2) If the prepayment occurs after the first anniversary date, but on or before the second anniversary date, the prepayment penalty will equal four percent (4%) of the principal amount prepaid.
3) If the prepayment occurs after the second anniversary date, but on or before the third anniversary date, the prepayment penalty will equal three percent (3%) of the principal amount prepaid.
4) If the prepayment occurs after the third anniversary date, but on or before the fourth anniversary date, the prepayment penalty will equal two percent (2%) of the principal amount prepaid.
5) If the prepayment occurs after the fourth anniversary date, but on or before the fifth anniversary date, the prepayment penalty will equal one percent (1%) of the principal amount prepaid.
* Prepayment Penalty will be waived for the last 180 days of the 5 year term.
Except for the foregoing, Borrower may pay all or a portion of the amount owed earlier than it is due. Early payments will not, unless agreed to by Lender in writing, relieve Borrower of Borrower’s obligation to continue to make payments under the payment schedule. Rather, early payments will reduce the principal balance due and may result in Borrower’s making fewer payments. Borrower agrees not to send Lender payments marked “paid in full”, “without recourse”, or similar language. If Borrower sends such a payment, Lender may accept it without losing any of Lender’s rights under this Note, and Borrower will remain obligated to pay any further amount owed to Lender. All written communications concerning disputed amounts, including any check or other payment instrument that indicates that the payment constitutes “payment in full” of the amount owed or that is tendered with other conditions or limitations or as full satisfaction of a disputed amount must be mailed or delivered to: Venture Bank, P.O. Box 9180 Minneapolis, MN 55480-9180.
LATE CHARGE. If a payment is 10 days or more late, Borrower will be charged 5.000% of the unpaid portion of the regularly scheduled payment or $50.00, whichever is greater.
INTEREST AFTER DEFAULT. Upon default, including failure to pay upon final maturity, the interest rate on this Note shall be increased by 6.000 percentage points. However, in no event will the interest rate exceed the maximum interest rate limitations under applicable law.
DEFAULT. Each of the following shall constitute an event of default (“Event of Default”) under this Note:
Payment Default. Borrower fails to make any payment when due under this Note.
|Loan No: 15696||(Continued)||Page 2|
Other Defaults. Borrower fails to comply with or to perform any other term, obligation, covenant or condition contained in this Note or in any of the related documents or to comply with or to perform any term, obligation, covenant or condition contained in any other agreement between Lender and Borrower.
False Statements. Any warranty, representation or statement made or furnished to Lender by Borrower or on Borrower’s behalf under this Note or the related documents is false or misleading in any material respect, either now or at the time made or furnished or becomes false or misleading at any time thereafter.
Insolvency. The dissolution or termination of Borrower’s existence as a going business, the insolvency of Borrower, the appointment of a receiver for any part of Borrower’s property, any assignment for the benefit of creditors, any type of creditor workout, or the commencement of any proceeding under any bankruptcy or insolvency laws by or against Borrower.
Creditor or Forfeiture Proceedings. Commencement of foreclosure or forfeiture proceedings, whether by judicial proceeding, self-help, repossession or any other method, by any creditor of Borrower or by any governmental agency against any collateral securing the loan. This includes a garnishment of any of Borrower’s accounts, including deposit accounts, with Lender. However, this Event of Default shall not apply if there is a good faith dispute by Borrower as to the validity or reasonableness of the claim which is the basis of the creditor or forfeiture proceeding and if Borrower gives Lender written notice of the creditor or forfeiture proceeding and deposits with Lender monies or a surety bond for the creditor or forfeiture proceeding, in an amount determined by Lender, in its sole discretion, as being an adequate reserve or bond for the dispute.
Events Affecting Guarantor. Any of the preceding events occurs with respect to any guarantor, endorser, surety, or accommodation party of any of the indebtedness or any guarantor, endorser, surety, or accommodation party dies or becomes incompetent, or revokes or disputes the validity of, or liability under, any guaranty of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note.
Change In Ownership. Any change in ownership of twenty-five percent (25%) or more of the common stock of Borrower.
Adverse Change. A material adverse change occurs in Borrower’s financial condition, or Lender believes the prospect of payment or performance of this Note is impaired.

Cure Provisions. If any default, other than a default in payment is curable and if Borrower has not been given a notice of a breach of the same provision of this Note within the preceding twelve (12) months, it may be cured if Borrower, after Lender sends written notice to Borrower demanding cure of such default: (1) cures the default within fifteen (15) days; or (2) if the cure requires more than fifteen (15) days, immediately initiates steps which Lender deems in Lender’s sole discretion to be sufficient to cure the default and thereafter continues and completes all reasonable and necessary steps sufficient to produce compliance as soon as reasonably practical.
LENDER’S RIGHTS. Upon default, Lender may declare the entire unpaid principal balance under this Note and all accrued unpaid interest immediately due, and then Borrower will pay that amount.
ATTORNEYS’ FEES; EXPENSES. Lender may hire or pay someone else to help collect this Note if Borrower does not pay. Borrower will pay Lender that amount. This includes, subject to any limits under applicable law, Lender’s reasonable attorneys’ fees and Lender’s legal expenses, whether or not there is a lawsuit, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, expenses for bankruptcy proceedings (including efforts to modify or vacate any automatic stay or injunction), and appeals. If not prohibited by applicable law, Borrower also will pay any court costs, in addition to all other sums provided by law.

This includes all accounts Borrower holds jointly with someone else and all accounts Borrower may open in the future. However, this does not include any IRA or Keogh accounts, or any trust accounts for which setoff would be prohibited by law. Borrower authorizes Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable law, to charge or setoff all sums owing on the indebtedness against any and all such accounts, and, at Lender’s option, to administratively freeze all such accounts to allow Lender to protect Lender’s charge and setoff rights provided in this paragraph.
