Loan No. E126S01
UNCOMMITTED REVOLVING CREDIT SUPPLEMENT
THIS SUPPLEMENT to the Master Loan Agreement dated August 1, 1996 (the
"MLA ) is entered into as of August 1, 1996 between GOLD XXXX INC. (the
"Company ) and CoBANK, ACB ("CoBank ).
SECTION 1. The Uncommitted Revolving Credit Facility. On the terms
and subject to the conditions set forth in the MLA and this Supplement,
CoBank hereby establishes a revocable, revolving credit facility in favor of
the Company pursuant to which CoBank may, but shall not be obligated to, make
loans to the Company from time to time during the period set forth below in
an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $20,000,000 at any one time
outstanding (the "Facility ). CoBank shall have the right in its sole
discretion and at any time to terminate the Facility or to refuse to make any
loan requested by the Company, all without furnishing prior notice or
incurring any liability to the Company. In addition, upon paying all amounts
owing hereunder (including, without limitation, all accrued interest and, if
applicable, any surcharges contemplated by Section 13 of the MLA), the
Company shall have the right to terminate the Facility at any time in its
sole discretion and without furnishing prior notice or incurring any
liability to CoBank.
SECTION 2. Purpose. The purpose of the Facility is to finance the
operating needs of the Company.
SECTION 3. Term. Subject to each party s right to terminate the
Facility at any time, the term of the Facility shall be from August 1, 1996,
up to but not including August 1, 1997. However, subject to each party's
continuing right to terminate the Facility at any time, the term of the
Facility shall be automatically extended for one or more additional one year
periods unless on or before the expiration of the Facility in any year,
either party receives written notice from the other to the contrary.
SECTION 4. Interest. The unpaid principal balance of each loan
shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal at all times to the rate of
interest established by CoBank from time to time as its National Variable
Rate, which Rate is intended by CoBank to be a reference rate and not its
lowest rate. The National Variable Rate will change on the date established by
CoBank as the effective date of any change therein and CoBank agrees to
notify the Company promptly after any such change. Notwithstanding the
foregoing, from time to time at the request of the Company, the rate of interest
charged hereunder may be fixed on such balances, for such periods (including
periods extending beyond the maturity date of the loans), and at such rates
as may be quoted by CoBank in its sole discretion in each instance. Upon the
expiration of any fixed rate period, interest shall automatically accrue at the
variable rate provided for above unless the amount fixed is repaid or fixed
for an additional period. In the event CoBank consents to one or more balances
being fixed for a period or periods extending beyond the maturity date of the
loans and the Commitment is not renewed, then each such balance shall be due and
payable on the last day of its fixed rate period and the promissory note set
forth below shall be deemed amended accordingly. Interest shall be
calculated on the actual number of days each loan is outstanding on the basis
of a year consisting of 360 days and be payable monthly in arrears by the
20th day of the following month.
SECTION 5. Promissory Note. The Company promises to repay each loan
made under the Facility in full ON DEMAND or, if no demand is made, on the
first Business Day following the expiration of the Facility. The Company
agrees that CoBank may make a demand for payment at any time without
furnishing prior notice or incurring any liability to the Company. In
addition to the above, the Company promises to pay interest on the unpaid
principal balance of the loans at the times and in accordance with the
provisions set forth in Section 4 hereof.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have caused this Supplement to the MLA
to be executed by their duly authorized officers as of the date shown above.
