(i)           Insurance.  The Grantor shall maintain with financially sound and reputable insurers, insurance with respect to the Collateral, including Collateral hereafter acquired, against loss or damage of the kinds and in the amounts customarily insured against by entities of established reputation having similar properties similarly situated and in such amounts as are customarily carried under similar circumstances by other such entities and otherwise as is prudent for entities engaged in similar businesses but in any event sufficient to cover the full replacement cost thereof (it being agreed that the insurance policies and amounts maintained by the Grantor as of the Closing Date are satisfactory).  The Grantor shall cause each insurance policy issued in connection herewith to provide, and the insurer issuing such policy to certify to the Secured Party that (a) the Secured Party will be named as Purchaser loss payee and additional insured under each such insurance policy; (b) if such insurance be proposed to be cancelled or materially changed for any reason whatsoever, such insurer will promptly notify the Secured Party and such cancellation or change shall not be effective as to the Secured Party for at least thirty (30) days after receipt by the Secured Party of such notice, unless the effect of such change is to extend or increase coverage under the policy; and (c) the Secured Party will have the right (but no obligation) at its election to remedy any default in the payment of premiums within thirty (30) days of notice from the insurer of such default.  If no Event of Default exists and if the proceeds arising out of any claim or series of related claims do not exceed $100,000, loss payments in each instance will be available to the Grantor and applied by the Grantor to the repair and/or replacement of property with respect to which the loss was incurred.  If no Event of Default exists and such proceeds exceed $100,000, and in any event after an Event of Default occurs, all proceeds then or thereafter in existence shall be paid to the Secured Party (for application to the Obligations) and, if received by the Grantor, shall be held in trust for the Secured Party and promptly paid over to the Secured Party (for application to the Obligations) unless otherwise directed in writing by the Secured Party.

21
 

 

15.          Marshaling. The Secured Party shall not be required to marshal any present or future collateral security (including but not limited to the Collateral) for, or other assurances of payment of, the Secured Obligations or any of them or to resort to such collateral security or other assurances of payment in any particular order, and all of its rights and remedies hereunder and in respect of such collateral security and other assurances of payment shall be cumulative and in addition to all other rights and remedies, however existing or arising.  To the extent that it lawfully may, the Grantor hereby agrees that it will not invoke any law relating to the marshaling of collateral which might cause delay in or impede the enforcement of the Secured Party’s rights and remedies under this Agreement or under any other instrument creating or evidencing any of the Secured Obligations or under which any of the Secured Obligations is outstanding or by which any of the Secured Obligations is secured or payment thereof is otherwise assured, and, to the extent that it lawfully may, the Grantor hereby irrevocably waives the benefits of all such laws.

22
 

 

18.          Addresses for Notices.  All notices and other communications provided for hereunder shall be given in the form and manner and delivered to the Secured Party at its address specified in the Purchase Agreement, and to the Grantor at its address specified in the Purchase Agreement, as applicable, or, as to any party, at such other address as shall be designated by such party in a written notice to the other party.

Upon indefeasible payment in full or other termination of the Obligations in accordance with the provisions of the Notes and the Purchase Agreement, the Security Interest granted hereby shall terminate and all rights to the Collateral shall revert to the Grantor or any other Person entitled thereto.  At such time, the Secured Party shall authorize the filing of appropriate termination statements to terminate such Security Interests.  No transfer or renewal, extension, assignment, or termination of this Agreement or of the Notes, the Purchase Agreement, any other Transaction Document, or any other instrument or document executed and delivered by the Grantor to the Secured Party nor any additional loans made by the Secured Party to the Grantor, nor the taking of further security, nor the retaking or re-delivery of the Collateral to the Grantor, by the Secured Party, shall release the Grantor from any obligation, except a release or discharge executed in writing by the Secured Party in accordance with the applicable provisions of this Agreement, the Notes and the Purchase Agreement, as the case may be. The Secured Party shall not by any act, delay, omission or otherwise, be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies hereunder, unless such waiver is in writing and signed by the Secured Party and then only to the extent therein set forth.  A waiver by the Secured Party of any right or remedy on any occasion shall not be construed as a bar to the exercise of any such right or remedy which the Secured Party would otherwise have had on any other occasion.

(b)          Any provision of this Agreement which is prohibited or unenforceable shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions hereof in that jurisdiction or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

(c)          Headings used in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not be used in connection with the interpretation of any provision hereof.

 

(d)         The pronouns used herein shall include, when appropriate, either gender and both singular and plural, and the grammatical construction of sentences shall conform thereto.

 

(e)          Unless the context of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document clearly requires otherwise, references to the plural include the singular, references to the singular include the plural, the terms “includes” and  “including” are not limiting, and the term “or” has, except where otherwise indicated, the inclusive meaning represented by the phrase “and/or.”  The words “hereof,” “herein,” “hereby,” “hereunder,” and similar terms in this Agreement or any other Transaction Document refer to this Agreement or such other Transaction Document, as the case may be, as a whole and not to any particular provision of this Agreement or such other Transaction Document, as the case may be.  Section, subsection, clause, schedule, and exhibit references herein are to this Agreement unless otherwise specified.  Any reference in this Agreement or in any other Transaction Document to any agreement, instrument, or document shall include all alterations, amendments, changes, extensions, modifications, renewals, replacements, substitutions, joinders, and supplements, thereto and thereof, as applicable (subject to any restrictions on such alterations, amendments, changes, extensions, modifications, renewals, replacements, substitutions, joinders, and supplements set forth herein or in the other Transaction Documents).  Any reference herein or in any other Transaction Document to the satisfaction or repayment in full of the Obligations shall mean the repayment in full in cash (or cash collateralization in accordance with the terms hereof) of all Obligations other than unasserted contingent indemnification Obligations.  Any reference herein to any Person shall be construed to include such Person’s successors and assigns.  Any requirement of a writing contained herein or in any other Transaction Document shall be satisfied by the transmission of a Record and any Record so transmitted shall constitute a representation and warranty as to the accuracy and completeness of the information contained therein.
