(q)for any and all Losses incurred or suffered by Lender arising out of or in connection with that certain Master Lease Agreement dated as of October 1, 2015, by and between CDOR San Spring, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, as landlord, and TRS San Spring, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, as tenant (the Master Lease”), or a breach by any party under the Master Lease, or any material modification of the Master Lease (except as permitted by the Loan Documents) or termination of the Master Lease (except as permitted by the Loan Documents).

As used in this Section 1, "Losses" shall mean and include any and all claims, suits, liabilities (including, without limitation, strict liabilities), actions, proceedings, obligations, debts, damages, losses, costs, expenses, diminutions in value, fines, penalties, charges, fees, expenses, judgment, awards, amounts paid in settlement, punitive damages, foreseeable and unforeseeable consequential damage, of whatever kind or nature (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees) expressly excluding, however, any of the foregoing resulting from Lender’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

This is a guaranty of payment and performance and not of collection.  The liability of Guarantor under this Agreement shall be direct and immediate and not conditional or contingent upon the genuineness, validity or enforceability of the Note, the Security Instrument, or any other Loan Document, or the pursuit of any remedies against Borrower or any other person or entity (including, without limitation, other guarantors, if any), nor against the collateral for the Loan.  Guarantor waives any right to require that an action be brought against Borrower or any other person or entity or to require that resort be had to any collateral for the Loan or to any balance of any deposit account or credit on the books of Lender in favor of Borrower or any other person or entity.  In the event, on account of the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978, as amended, or any other debtor relief law (whether statutory, common law, case law or otherwise) of any jurisdiction whatsoever, now or hereafter in effect, which may be or become applicable, Borrower shall be relieved of or fail to incur any debt, obligation or liability as provided in the Loan Documents, Guarantor shall nevertheless be fully liable therefor.  In the event of a default under the Loan Documents, which is not cured within any applicable grace or cure period, Lender shall have the right to enforce its rights, powers and remedies (including, without limitation, foreclosure of all or

 

-7-

 

 


 

any portion of the collateral for the Loan) thereunder or hereunder, in any order, and all rights, powers and remedies available to Lender in such event shall be non-exclusive and cumulative of all other rights, powers and remedies provided thereunder or hereunder or by law or in equity.  If the indebtedness and obligations guaranteed hereby are partially paid or discharged by reason of the exercise of any of the remedies available to Lender, this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect, and Guarantor shall remain liable for all remaining indebtedness and obligations guaranteed hereby, even though any rights which Guarantor may have against Borrower may be destroyed or diminished by the exercise of any such remedy.

2.Indemnification Procedures.

(a)If any action shall be brought against Lender based upon any of the matters for which Lender is indemnified hereunder, Lender shall notify Guarantor in writing thereof and Guarantor shall promptly assume the defense thereof, including, without limitation, the employment of counsel (including all paralegals, legal assistants and other paraprofessionals) acceptable to Lender and the negotiation of any settlement; provided, however, that any failure of Lender to notify Guarantor of such matter shall not impair or reduce the obligations of Guarantor hereunder.  Lender shall have the right, at the expense of Guarantor (which expense shall be included in Costs), to employ separate counsel in any such action and to participate in the defense thereof.  In the event Guarantor shall fail to discharge or undertake to defend Lender against any claim, loss or liability for which Lender is indemnified hereunder, Lender may, at its sole option and election, defend or settle such claim, loss or liability.  The liability of Guarantor to Lender hereunder shall be conclusively established by such settlement, provided such settlement is made in good faith, the amount of such liability to include both the settlement consideration and the costs and expenses, including, without limitation, attorneys' fees and disbursements, incurred by Lender in effecting such settlement.  In such event, such settlement consideration, costs and expenses shall be included in Costs and Guarantor shall pay the same in accordance with Section 2(c) hereof.  Lender's good faith in any such settlement shall be conclusively established if the settlement is made on the advice of independent legal counsel for Lender.

(b)Guarantor shall not, without the prior written consent of Lender: (i) settle or compromise any action, suit, proceeding or claim relating to an indemnified obligation or consent to the entry of any judgment that does not include as an unconditional term thereof the delivery by the claimant or plaintiff to Lender of a full and complete written release of Lender and the Property (in form, scope and substance satisfactory to Lender in its sole discretion) from all liability in respect of such action, suit, proceeding or claim and a dismissal with prejudice of such action, suit, proceeding or claim; or (ii) settle or compromise any action, suit, proceeding or claim relating to an indemnified obligation in any manner that may adversely affect Lender or the Property or obligate Lender to pay any sum or perform any obligation (as determined by Lender in its sole discretion).

(c)All Costs shall be immediately reimbursable to Lender when and as incurred and, in the event of any litigation, claim or other proceedings, without any requirement of waiting for the ultimate outcome of such litigation, claim or other proceedings, and Guarantor shall pay to Lender any and all Costs within ten (10) days after written notice from Lender itemizing the amounts thereof incurred to the date of such notice.  In addition to any other remedy available for the failure of Guarantor to periodically pay such Costs, such Costs, if not paid within said ten (10)

day period, shall bear interest at the Default Interest Rate (as defined in the Note and such costs and interest shall be additional indebtedness of Borrower secured by the Security Instrument and by the other Loan Documents securing all or part of the Loan).

3.Reinstatement of Obligations.  If at any time all or any part of any payment made by Guarantor or received by Lender from Guarantor under or with respect to this Agreement is or must be rescinded or returned for any reason whatsoever (including, but not limited to, the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of Guarantor or Borrower), then the obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall, to the extent of the payment rescinded or returned, be deemed to have continued in existence, notwithstanding such previous payment made by Guarantor, or receipt of payment by Lender, and the obligations of Guarantor hereunder shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, as to such payment, all as though such previous payment by Guarantor had never been made.

4.Waivers by Guarantor.  To the extent permitted by law, Guarantor hereby waives and agrees not to assert or take advantage of:

(a)Any right to require Lender to proceed against Borrower, any separate entity that makes up Borrower or, if Borrower is a limited liability company, any member of Borrower or any other indemnitor or guarantor of the indebtedness and obligations guaranteed hereby or any other person or to proceed against or exhaust any security held by Lender at any time or to pursue any other remedy in Lender's power or under any other agreement before proceedings against Guarantor hereunder;

(b)The defense of the statute of limitations in any action hereunder;

(c)Any defense that may arise by reason of the incapacity, lack of authority, death or disability of any other person or entity or the failure of Lender to file or enforce a claim against the estate (in administration, bankruptcy or any other proceedings) of any other person or entity;

(d)Demand, presentment for payment, notice of nonpayment, intent to accelerate, acceleration, protest, notice of protest and all other notices of any kind (except to the extent expressly provided in the Loan Documents), or the lack of any thereof, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, notice of the existence, creation or incurring of any new or additional indebtedness or obligation or of any action or non-action on the part of Borrower, Lender, any endorser or creditor of Borrower or of Guarantor or on the part of any other person or entity whatsoever under this or any other instrument in connection with any obligation or evidence of indebtedness held by Lender;

(e)(i) Any defense based upon an election of remedies by Lender, even though such election (e.g., nonjudicial foreclosure with respect to any collateral held by Lender to secure repayment of the indebtedness evidenced by the Note) destroys or otherwise impairs the subrogation rights of Guarantor or the right of Guarantor (after payment of the obligations guaranteed by Guarantor under this Agreement) to proceed against Borrower for reimbursement, or both, and (ii) any and all rights or defenses Guarantor may have by reason of protection afforded to Borrower with respect to any of the obligations of Guarantor under this Agreement pursuant to

(m)Any modifications of the Loan Documents or any obligation of Borrower relating to the Loan by operation of law or by action of any court, whether pursuant to the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978, as amended, or any other debtor relief law (whether statutory, common law, case law or otherwise) of any jurisdiction whatsoever, now or hereafter in effect, or otherwise;

(r)Any right of discharge under any and all statutes or other laws relating to guarantors or sureties and any other rights of sureties and guarantors thereunder;  and

(s)Without limiting any of the foregoing, any and all rights Guarantor may have under, and any requirements imposed by (i) Chapter 34 of the Texas Business & Commerce Code, as amended, (ii) Section 17.001 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, as amended, (iii) Rule 31 of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, as amended, and (iv) §§51.003, 51.004 and 51.005 of the Texas Property Code, as amended.

Guarantor understands that the exercise by Lender of certain rights and remedies contained in the Security Instrument (such as a nonjudicial foreclosure sale) may affect or eliminate Guarantors right of subrogation against Borrower and that Guarantor may therefore incur a partially or totally nonreimbursable liability under this Agreement.  Nevertheless, Guarantor hereby authorizes and empowers Lender to exercise, in its sole and absolute discretion, any right or remedy, or any combination thereof, which may then be available, since it is the intent and purpose of Guarantor that the obligations under this Agreement shall be absolute, independent and unconditional under any and all circumstances.  Guarantor expressly waives to the maximum extent permitted by law any defense (which defense, if Guarantor had not given this waiver, Guarantor might otherwise have) to a judgment against Guarantor by reason of a nonjudicial foreclosure.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Guarantor hereby expressly waives, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any and all benefits under (i) any applicable laws which, if Guarantor had not given this waiver, would otherwise limit Guarantors liability after a nonjudicial foreclosure sale to the difference between the obligations of Guarantor under this Agreement and the fair market value of the property or interests sold at such nonjudicial foreclosure sale, (ii) any applicable laws which, if Guarantor had not given this waiver, would otherwise limit Lender's right to recover a deficiency judgment with respect to purchase money obligations and after a nonjudicial foreclosure sale, respectively, and (iii) any applicable laws which, if Guarantor had not given this waiver, among other things, would otherwise require Lender to exhaust all of its security before a personal judgment could be obtained for a deficiency.  Notwithstanding any foreclosure of the lien of the Security Instrument, whether by the exercise of the power of sale contained in the Security Instrument, by an action for judicial foreclosure or by Lender's acceptance of a deed in lieu of foreclosure, Guarantor shall remain bound under this Agreement.  Guarantor waives all rights and defenses that Guarantor may have because Borrower's obligations are secured by real property.  This means, among other things:

(1)Lender may collect from Guarantor without first foreclosing on any real or personal property collateral pledged by Borrower or others; and

(2)If Lender forecloses on any real property collateral pledged by Borrower or others:  (A) the amount of the debt may be reduced only by the price for which that

 

-11-

 

 


 

collateral is sold at the foreclosure sale, even if the collateral is worth more than the sale price, and (B) Lender may collect from Guarantor even if Lender, by foreclosing on the real property collateral, has destroyed any right Guarantor may have to collect from Borrower.

This is an unconditional and irrevocable waiver of any rights and defenses that Guarantor may have because Borrower's obligations are secured by real property.

5.General Provisions.

(a)Fully Recourse.  All of the terms and provisions of this Agreement are recourse obligations of Guarantor and not restricted by any limitation on personal liability set forth in any Loan Document.

(b)Unsecured Obligations.  Guarantor hereby acknowledges that Lender's appraisal of the Property is such that Lender is not willing to accept the consequences of the inclusion of Guarantors indemnity set forth herein among the obligations secured by the Security Instrument and the other Loan Documents and that Lender would not consent to the assignment and assumption of the Loan but for the unsecured personal liability undertaken by Guarantor herein.  Guarantor further hereby acknowledges that even though the representations, warranties, covenants or agreements of Guarantor contained herein may be identical or substantially similar to representations, warranties, covenants or agreements of Borrower set forth in the Security Instrument and secured thereby, the obligations of Guarantor under this Agreement are not secured by the lien of the Security Instrument or the security interests or other collateral described in the Security Instrument or the other Loan Documents, it being the intent of Lender to create separate obligations of Guarantor hereunder which can be enforced against Guarantor without regard to the existence of the Security Instrument or other Loan Documents or the liens or security interests created therein.

(c)No Subrogation; No Recourse Against Lender.  Notwithstanding the satisfaction by Guarantor of any liability hereunder, until such time as the Loan has been fully and indefeasibly repaid, all obligations owed to Lender under the Loan Documents have been fully performed, and Lender has released, transferred or disposed of all of Lender's right, title and interest in all collateral or security for the Loan, and there has expired the maximum possible period thereafter during which any payment made by Borrower or others to Lender with respect to the indebtedness evidenced by the Note could be deemed a preference under the United States Bankruptcy Code, Guarantor shall not have any right of subrogation, contribution, reimbursement or indemnity whatsoever or any right of recourse to or with respect to the assets or property of Borrower or to any collateral for the Loan.  In connection with the foregoing, Guarantor expressly waives, until such time as the Loan has been fully and indefeasibly repaid, all obligations owed to Lender under the Loan Documents have been fully performed, and Lender has released, transferred or disposed of all of Lender's right, title and interest in such collateral or security, and there has expired the maximum possible period thereafter during which any payment made by Borrower or others to Lender with respect to the indebtedness evidenced by the Note could be deemed a preference under the United States Bankruptcy Code, any and all rights of subrogation to Lender against Borrower, and Guarantor hereby waives any rights to enforce any remedy which Lender may have against Borrower, and any right to participate in any collateral for the Loan.  In addition to and without in any way limiting the foregoing, Guarantor hereby subordinates any and all

 

-12-

 

 


 

indebtedness of Borrower now or hereafter owed to Guarantor to all indebtedness of Borrower to Lender, and agrees with Lender that Guarantor shall not demand or accept any payment of principal or interest from Borrower, shall not claim any offset or other reduction of Guarantors obligations hereunder because of any such indebtedness and shall not take any action to obtain any of the collateral from the Loan; provided, however, that so long as there does not exist a Default or Event of Default, a distribution of profits on a return of capital made by Borrower which may ultimately be received by Guarantor shall not be deemed to be indebtedness of, or payment of principal and interest from, Borrower.  Further, Guarantor shall not have any right of recourse against Lender by reason of any action Lender may take or omit to take under the provisions of this Agreement or under the provisions of any of the Loan Documents.

(d)Reservation of Rights.  Nothing contained in this Agreement shall prevent or in any way diminish or interfere with any rights or remedies, including, without limitation, the right to contribution, which Lender may have against Borrower, Guarantor or any other party under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (codified at Title 42 U.S.C. §9601 et seq.), as it may be amended from time to time, or any other applicable federal, state or local laws, all such rights being hereby expressly reserved.

(e)Financial Statements; Net Worth.  Guarantor hereby agrees, as a material inducement to Lender to consent to the assignment and assumption of the Loan to Borrower, to furnish, from time to time to Lender promptly within thirty (30) days of demand by Lender, but not more frequently than once per calendar quarter unless an Event of Default shall exist, (1) current and dated financial statements detailing the assets and liabilities of Guarantor certified by Guarantor, in form and substance acceptable to Lender, together with a certificate from Guarantor that no material adverse change in the financial statement and net worth of Guarantor has occurred since the date of such statement, and (2) copies of the most recently filed tax returns of Guarantor.  Guarantor hereby warrants and represents unto Lender that any and all balance sheets, net worth statements and other financial data which have heretofore been given or may hereafter be given to Lender with respect to Guarantor did or will at the time of such delivery fairly and accurately present in all material respects the financial condition of Guarantor.  Guarantor hereby agrees, for the benefit of Lender:  (i) to maintain, from and after the date of execution of this Agreement and thereafter throughout the term of the Loan, a net worth of at least Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) (Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) of which shall at all times during the term of the Loan be held in cash and/or marketable securities or be available for immediate draw under Guarantor’s credit line) in the aggregate (the "Minimum Net Worth"), as evidenced by tax returns and financial statements certified by Guarantor; (ii) to cause such financial statements for Guarantor to be prepared for each calendar year commencing with the calendar year 2014 and delivered to Lender promptly following the end of each such calendar year, together with a certificate from Guarantor that no material adverse change in the financial statements and net worth of Guarantor has occurred since the date of such statement; and (iii) to notify Lender within ten (10) days after Guarantor becomes aware that Guarantor has failed to maintain the Minimum Net Worth as set forth above.  Any breach of this Section shall be deemed an Event of Default under the Security Instrument;  provided, however, that the failure to maintain the Minimum Net Worth set forth above shall not give rise to an Event of Default if, within thirty (30) days after Gurantor fails to maintain such Minimum Net Worth, Guarantor replaces any existing Guarantor with a new guarantor or adds a new guarantor(s) (in each case individually and colelctively referred to herein as, a “Replacement Guarantor”), which Replacement Guarantor shall (i) have a net worth, which

 

-13-

 

 


 

together with the net worth of the other Guarantor(s) is equal to or greater than the Minimum Net Worth in the aggregate, as evidenced by financial statements certified by such Replacement Guarantor, (ii) has the reputation and standing in the community as of the date of such replacement or addition contemplated herein, that is at least equal to the reputation and standing of the existing Guarantor as of the effective date of this Agreement and (iii) be otherwise satisfactory to Lender in its sole but reasonable discretion

(f)Rights Cumulative; Payments.  Lender's rights under this Agreement shall be in addition to all rights of Lender under the Note, the Security Instrument and the other Loan Documents.  Further, payments made by Guarantor under this Agreement shall not reduce in any respect Borrower's obligations and liabilities under the Note, the Security Instrument and the other Loan Documents. 

(g)No Limitation on Liability.  Guarantor hereby consents and agrees Lender may at any time and from time to time without further consent from Guarantor do any of the following events, and that the liability of Guarantor under this Agreement shall be unconditional and absolute and shall in no way be impaired or limited by any of the following events, whether occurring with or without notice to Guarantor or with or without consideration:  (i) any extensions of time for performance required by any of the Loan Documents or extension or renewal of the Note, (ii) any sale, assignment or foreclosure of the Note, the Security Instrument or any of the other Loan Documents or any sale or transfer of the Property, (iii) any change in the composition of Borrower, including, without limitation, the withdrawal or removal of Guarantor from any current or future position of ownership, management or control of Borrower, (iv) the accuracy or inaccuracy of the representations and warranties made by Guarantor herein or by Borrower in any of the Loan Documents, (v) the release of Borrower or of any other person or entity from performance or observance of any of the agreements, covenants, terms or conditions contained in any of the Loan Documents by operation of law, Lender's voluntary act or otherwise, (vi) the release or substitution in whole or in part of any security for the Loan, (vii) Lender's failure to record the Security Instrument or to file any financing statement (or Lender's improper recording or filing thereof) or to otherwise perfect, protect, secure or insure any lien or security interest given as security for the Loan, (viii) the modification of the terms of any one or more of the Loan Documents, or (ix) the taking or failure to take any action of any type whatsoever.  No such action which Lender shall take or fail to take in connection with the Loan Documents or any collateral for the Loan, nor any course of dealing with Borrower or any other person or entity, shall limit, impair or release Guarantors obligations hereunder, affect this Agreement in any way or afford Guarantor any recourse against Lender.  Nothing contained in this Section shall be construed to require Lender to take or refrain from taking any action referred to herein.

(h)Successive Actions.  A separate right of action hereunder shall arise each time Lender acquires knowledge of any matter indemnified or guaranteed by Guarantor under this Agreement.  Separate and successive actions may be brought hereunder to enforce any of the provisions hereof at any time and from time to time.  No action hereunder shall preclude any subsequent action, and Guarantor hereby waives and covenants not to assert any defense in the nature of splitting of causes of action or merger of judgments.

(i)[Intentionally Omitted].

(j)Reliance.  Lender would not consent to the assignment and assumption of the Loan without this Agreement.  Accordingly, Guarantor intentionally and unconditionally enters into the covenants and agreements as set forth above and understands that, in reliance upon and in consideration of such covenants and agreements, such consent shall be made and, as part and parcel thereof, specific monetary and other obligations have been, are being and shall be entered into which would not be made or entered into but for such reliance.

(k)Waiver by Guarantor.  Guarantor covenants and agrees that, upon the commencement of a voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceeding by or against Borrower, Guarantor shall not seek or cause Borrower or any other person or entity to seek a supplemental stay or other relief, whether injunctive or otherwise, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 105 or any other provision of the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978, as amended, or any other debtor relief law (whether statutory, common law, case law or otherwise) of any jurisdiction whatsoever, now or hereafter in effect, which may be or become applicable, to stay, interdict, condition, reduce or inhibit the ability of Lender to enforce any rights of Lender against Guarantor or the collateral for the Loan by virtue of this Agreement or otherwise.

(o)Multiple Guarantors.  If one or more additional guaranty or indemnity agreements ("Other Guaranties") are executed by one or more additional guarantors ("Other Guarantors"), which guarantee, in whole or in part, any of the indebtedness or obligations evidenced by the Loan Documents, it is specifically agreed that Lender may enforce the provisions of this Agreement or of the Other Guaranties with respect to Guarantor and/or one or more of the Other Guarantors under the Other Guaranties without seeking to enforce the provisions of this Agreement or the Other Guaranties as to Guarantor or the Other GuarantorsGuarantor hereby waives any requirement of joinder of all or any of the parties constituting the Other Guarantors in any suit or proceeding to enforce the provisions of this Agreement or of the Other Guaranties.

(p)No Waiver: Time of Essence.  The failure of any party hereto to enforce any right or remedy hereunder, or to promptly enforce any such right or remedy, shall not constitute a waiver thereof nor give rise to any estoppel against such party nor excuse any of the parties hereto from their respective obligations hereunder.  Any waiver of such right or remedy must be in writing

and signed by the party to be bound.  This Agreement is subject to enforcement at law or in equity, including actions for damages or specific performance.  Time is of the essence hereof.
