While the Notes, the Loan and any of the Obligations are outstanding, Debtor shall use its best efforts to take all actions as shall be necessary to enable it to perform its obligations pursuant to this Agreement and shall not enter into any agreement the terms of which would restrict or impair its ability to perform its obligations under this Agreement.
a) Appointment of Collateral Agent. The holders of a majority of the then outstanding Notes (the “Majority Holders”) may collectively appoint a Collateral Agent to act for them as collateral agent, to hold any pledged collateral and any other collateral perfected by perfection or control for the benefit of the Purchasers and (ii) authorizes the Collateral Agent (and its officers, directors, employees and agents) to take such action on such Purchaser's behalf in accordance with the terms hereof. Simultaneous with the Majority Holders’ appointment of a Collateral Agent, such Collateral Agent shall agree to be a party to this Agreement by executing and delivering the Collateral Agent counter signature page attached to this Agreement (the “Collateral Agent Document”), following which the Collateral Agent shall be bound by each of the applicable terms and conditions of this Agreement and be a party to this Agreement, effective as of the date of such execution. The Majority Holders shall promptly deliver a copy of the Collateral Agent Document to the Debtor.
b) Liability. The Collateral Agent shall not have, by reason hereof or pursuant to any Transaction Documents, a fiduciary relationship in respect of any Purchaser. Neither the Collateral Agent nor any of its officers, directors, employees and agents shall have any liability to any Purchaser for any action taken or omitted to be taken in connection hereof or the Transaction Documents except to the extent caused by its own willful misconduct, and each Purchaser agrees to defend, protect, indemnify and hold harmless the Collateral Agent and all of its officers, directors, employees and agents (collectively, the "Collateral Agent Indemnitees") from and against any losses, damages, liabilities, obligations, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, fees, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, costs and expenses) incurred by such Collateral Agent Indemnitee, whether direct, indirect or consequential, arising from or in connection with the performance by such Collateral Agent Indemnitee of the duties and obligations of the Collateral Agent pursuant hereto or any of the Transaction Documents except to the extent caused by its own willful misconduct, including without limitation, in connection with the collection of such indemnification from the Purchasers, up to such Purchaser's Pro Rata Indemnification Amount (as defined below). In the event a Purchaser does not indemnify the Collateral Agent within five (5) Business Days of a
ruling a court of competent jurisdiction to so indemnify the Collateral Agent, the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to get indemnification from the other Purchasers for such unpaid indemnification amount up to such other Purchasers' respective pro rata portion of such unpaid indemnification calculated by multiplying (i) the aggregate dollar amount of such unpaid indemnification to the Collateral Agent, by (ii) the fraction, the numerator of which is the sum of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes held by such Purchaser and the denominator of which is the sum of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding excluding the aggregate principal amount of the Note held by any unpaying Purchaser. Each Purchaser may seek indemnification from other Purchasers to the extent it indemnified the Collateral Agent pursuant to this Section 4(b) in excess of such Purchaser's pro rata portion of the Notes that are then outstanding calculated by multiplying (i) the aggregate dollar amount of such indemnification to the Collateral Agent, by (ii) the fraction, the numerator of which is the sum of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes held by such Purchaser and the denominator of which is the sum of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding (such fraction with respect to each holder is referred to as its "Indemnification Allocation Percentage," and such amount with respect to each holder is referred to as its "Pro Rata Indemnification Amount"); provided, however, that in the event that any holder's Pro Rata Indemnification Amount exceeds the outstanding principal amount of such holder's Note, then such excess Pro Rata Indemnification Amount shall be allocated amongst the remaining holders of Notes in accordance with the foregoing formula. In the event that the initial holder of any Notes shall sell or otherwise transfer any of such holder's Notes, the transferee shall be allocated a pro rata portion of such holder's Indemnification Allocation Percentage and Pro Rata Indemnification Amount.
c) Reliance. The Collateral Agent shall be entitled to rely upon any written notices, statements, certificates, orders or other documents or any telephone message believed by it in good faith to be genuine and correct and to have been signed, sent or made by the proper person, and with respect to all matters pertaining to this Agreement or any of the other Transaction Documents and its duties hereunder or thereunder, upon advice of counsel selected by it.
d) Resignation. The Collateral Agent may resign from the performance of all its functions and duties hereunder and under the Transaction Documents at any time by giving at least ten (10) Business Days prior written notice to the Company and each holder of the Notes. Such resignation shall take effect upon the acceptance by a successor Collateral Agent of appointment as provided below. Upon any such notice of resignation, the Majority Holders shall appoint a successor Collateral Agent. Upon the acceptance of the appointment as Collateral Agent, such successor Collateral Agent shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Collateral Agent, and the retiring Collateral Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under this Agreement, the Notes and the Transaction Documents. After any Collateral Agent's resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Section 4 shall inure to its benefit. If a successor Collateral Agent shall not have been so appointed within said ten (10) Business Day period, the retiring Collateral Agent, shall then appoint a successor Collateral Agent who shall serve until such time, if any, as the Majority Holders appoints a successor Collateral Agent as provided above.
e) The Company hereby covenants and agrees to take all actions as promptly as practicable reasonably requested by either the Majority Holders or the Collateral Agent (or its successor), from time to time pursuant to the terms of this Section 4, to secure a successor Collateral Agent satisfactory to such requesting part(y)(ies), in their sole discretion, including, without limitation, by paying all fees of such successor Collateral Agent, by having the Company agree to indemnify any successor Collateral Agent and by executing a collateral agency agreement or similar agreement and/or any amendment to the Transaction Documents reasonably requested or required by the successor Collateral Agent.
f) Appointment as Attorney-in-Fact. Pledgor and Secured Party hereby appoint the Collateral Agent to act on behalf of Secured Party, with full power of substitution, as its attorney-in-fact with full irrevocable power and authority in the place of Pledgor and in the name of Pledgor or in its own name, so long as an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of this Agreement, to take any and all appropriate action and to execute any instrument which may be necessary or desirable
g) to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement. Without limiting the foregoing, so long as an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Secured Party, through the Collateral Agent, in its discretion, will have the right, without notice to, or the consent of Pledgor, to do any of the following on behalf of Pledgor:
(i) to pay or discharge any obligations in connection with the Collateral, including license fees and taxes or liens levied or placed on or threatened against the Collateral;
(ii) to direct any party liable for any payment under any of the Collateral to make payment of any and all amounts due or to become due thereunder directly to Secured Party or as Secured Party directs;
(iii) to ask for or demand, collect and receive payment of and receipt for any payments due or to become due at any time in respect of or arising out of any Collateral;
(iv) to commence and prosecute any suits, actions or proceedings at law or in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction to enforce any right in respect of any Collateral;
(v) to defend any suit, action or proceeding brought against any Pledgor with respect to any Collateral;

(vii) to assign any license or patent right included in the Collateral or (along with the goodwill of the business to which any such license or patent right pertains), throughout the world for such term or terms, on such conditions and in such manner as Secured Party in their sole discretion determine;
(viii) to sell, transfer, pledge and make any agreement with respect to or otherwise deal with any of the Collateral and to take, at Secured Party’s option and Pledgor’s expense, any actions which Secured Party deem necessary to protect, preserve or realize upon the Collateral and Secured Party’s liens on the Collateral and to carry out the intent of this Agreement, in each case to the same extent as if Secured Party were the absolute owners of the Collateral for all purposes;
(ix) to exercise the voting and other consensual rights which it would otherwise be entitled to exercise and all rights of Pledgor to receive the dividends and interests which it would otherwise be authorized to receive and retain, shall cease. Upon such notice, Collateral Agent shall have the right to receive, for the benefit of the Secured Party, any interest, cash dividends or other payments on the Collateral and, at the option of the Collateral Agent, to exercise in such Collateral Agent’s discretion all voting rights pertaining thereto. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Collateral Agent shall have the right (but not the obligation) to exercise all rights with respect to the Collateral as it were the sole and absolute owner thereof, including, without limitation, to vote and/or to exchange, at its sole discretion, any or all of the Collateral in connection with a merger, reorganization, consolidation, recapitalization or other readjustment concerning or involving the Collateral of Pledgor or any of its direct or indirect subsidiaries;
(x) to operate the Business of Debtor using the Collateral, and shall have the right to assign, sell, lease or otherwise dispose of and deliver all or any part of the Collateral, at public or private sale or otherwise, either with or without special conditions or stipulations, for cash or on credit or for future delivery, in such parcel or parcels and at such time or times and at such place or places, and upon such terms and conditions as the Collateral Agent may deem commercially reasonable, all without (except as shall be required by applicable statute and cannot be waived) advertisement or demand upon or notice to any Debtor or right of redemption of a Pledgor, which are hereby expressly waived. Upon each such sale, lease, assignment or other transfer of Collateral, the Secured Party, may, unless prohibited by applicable law which cannot be waived, purchase all or any part of the Collateral being sold, free from and discharged of all trusts, claims, right of redemption and equities of any Pledgor, which are hereby waived and released;
(xi) to sign and endorse any drafts, assignments, proxies, stock powers, verifications, notices and other documents relating to the Collateral; and
(xii) to notify Pledgor and any obligors under instruments or accounts to make payments directly to the Collateral Agent, on behalf of the Secured Party, and to enforce Pledgor’s rights against such account Pledgor and obligors.
Pledgor hereby ratifies whatever actions Secured Party or the Collateral Agent, as applicable lawfully does or causes to be done in accordance with this Section 4. This power of attorney will be a power coupled with an interest and will be irrevocable.
h) No Duty on Secured Party’s Part. The powers conferred on Secured Party and the Collateral Agent by this Section 4 are solely to protect Secured Party’s interest in the Collateral and do not impose any duty upon it to exercise any such powers. Secured Party will be accountable only for amounts that it actually receives as a result of the exercise of such powers, and neither Secured Party nor any of their officers, directors, employees or agents will, in the absence of willful misconduct or gross negligence, be responsible to Pledgor for any act or failure to act pursuant to this Section 4.
i) Application of Proceeds. The proceeds of any sale, lease or other disposition of the Collateral hereunder or from payments made on account of any insurance policy insuring any portion of the Collateral shall be applied: (i) first, to the expenses of retaking, holding, storing, processing and preparing for sale, selling, and the like (including, without limitation, any taxes, fees and other costs incurred in connection therewith) of the Collateral, to the reasonable fees of the Collateral Agent and reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred by the Collateral Agent in enforcing the Secured Party’ rights hereunder and in connection with collecting, storing and disposing of the Collateral; and, (ii) second, to satisfaction of the Obligations pro rata among the Secured Parties (based on then-outstanding principal amounts of the Notes at the time of any such determination), and to the payment of any other amounts required by applicable law, after which the Secured Party shall pay to the respective Pledgor any surplus proceeds.
j) Liability for Deficiency. Upon the sale, license or other disposition of the Collateral, the proceeds thereof are insufficient to pay all amounts to which the Secured Party are legally entitled, Debtor will be liable for the deficiency, together with interest thereon, at the Default Rate set forth in the Notes or the lesser amount permitted by applicable law (the “Default Rate”), and the reasonable fees of any attorneys employed by the Secured Party to collect such deficiency. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Pledgor and Debtor waive all claims, damages and demands against the Secured Party arising out of the repossession, removal, retention or sale of the Collateral, unless due solely to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Secured Party as determined by a final judgment (not subject to further appeal) of a court of competent jurisdiction.
4. Duty To Hold In Trust. Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default and at any time thereafter, the Pledgor shall, upon receipt of any revenue, income, dividend, interest or other sums subject to the Security Interests, whether payable pursuant to the Notes or otherwise, or of any check, draft, note, trade acceptance or other instrument evidencing an obligation to pay any such sum, hold the same in trust for the Secured Parties and shall forthwith endorse and transfer any such sums or instruments, or both, in accordance with the provisions of Section 4(h) above and if any amounts are remaining to the Secured Parties, pro rata in proportion to their respective then-currently outstanding principal amount of Note for application to the satisfaction of the Obligations.
5. Expenses Incurred by Secured Party. If Pledgor fails to perform or comply with any of its agreements or covenants contained in this Agreement, and Secured Party performs or complies, or otherwise causes performance or compliance, with such agreement or covenant in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, then the reasonable expenses of Secured Party incurred in connection with such performance or compliance will be payable by the Pledgor to the Secured Parties on demand and will constitute Obligations secured by this Agreement.
6. Remedies. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Secured Party may exercise, in addition to all other rights and remedies granted to it in this Agreement and in any other instrument or agreement relating to the Obligations, all rights and remedies of a Secured Party under the Nevada Uniform Commercial Code, as amended from time to time (the “Nevada Code”) and the California Commercial Code, as amended form time to time (the “California Code,” together with the Nevada Code, the “Code”). Without limiting the foregoing, in such circumstances, without demand of performance or other demand, presentment, protest, advertisement or notice of any kind (except any notice required by law) to or upon Pledgor or any other person (all of which demands, defenses, advertisements and notices are hereby waived), Secured Party may collect, receive, appropriate and realize upon any or all of the Collateral and/or may sell, lease, assign, give an option or options to purchase or otherwise dispose of and deliver any or all of the Collateral (or contract to do any of the foregoing), in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at any exchange, broker’s board or office of Secured Party or elsewhere upon such terms and conditions as Secured Party may deem advisable, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk. Secured Party will have the right upon any such public sale or sales and, to the extent permitted by law, upon any such private sale or sales, to purchase all or any part of the Collateral so sold, free of any right or equity of redemption in Pledgor, which right or equity is hereby waived or released. Subject to the provisions of Section 4(h), Secured Party will apply the net proceeds of any such collection, recovery, receipt, appropriation, realization or sale, after deducting all reasonable expenses incurred therein or in connection with the care or safekeeping of any of the Collateral or in any way relating to the Collateral or the rights of Secured Party under this Agreement (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) to the payment in whole or in part of the Obligations, in such order as Secured Party may elect, and only after such application and after the payment by Secured Party of any other amount required by any provision of law, need Secured Party account for the surplus, if any, to the respective Pledgor. To the extent permitted by applicable law, Pledgor waives all claims, damage and demands it may acquire against Secured Party arising out of the exercise by Secured Party of any of its rights hereunder. If any notice of a proposed sale or other disposition of Collateral is required by law, such notice will be deemed reasonable and proper if given at least ten (10) days before such sale or other disposition. Pledgor will remain liable for any deficiency of Pledgor if the proceeds of any sale or other disposition of the Collateral are insufficient to pay the Obligations and the reasonable fees and disbursements of any attorneys employed by Secured Party to collect such deficiency.
7. Limitation on Duties Regarding Preservation of Collateral. The sole duty of Secured Party with respect to the custody, safekeeping and preservation of the Collateral, under the appropriate Code section or otherwise, will be to deal with it in the same manner as Secured Party deals with similar property for its own account. Neither Secured Party nor any of its employees, affiliates or agents will be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon all or any part of the Collateral or for any delay in doing so or will be under any obligation to sell or otherwise dispose of any Collateral upon the request of Pledgor or otherwise.
8. Powers Coupled with an Interest. All authorizations and agencies contained in this Agreement with respect the Collateral are irrevocable and powers coupled with an interest.
9. No Waiver; Cumulative Remedies. Secured Party will not by any act (except by a written instrument pursuant to Section 11(a) hereof) of delay, indulgence, omission or otherwise be deemed to have waived any right or remedy hereunder or to have acquiesced in any Event of Default under the Note or in any breach of any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of Secured Party, any right, power or privilege hereunder will operate as a waiver thereof. No single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder will preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege.
