Notwithstanding the foregoing restriction on the sale of any assets of the Borrower, the Lender
hereby consents to the sale of any and all assets of the Borrower, except for the Borrower' s
claims and rights related to the Litigation and the Litigation Proceeds; or
(b) Notwithstanding and in addition to any other provision and/or restriction
contained in this Agreement or in the other Loan Documents, the Borrower shall not have
the right to sell or further encumber all or any portion of its rights in the Litigation or in
the Litigation Proceeds, but this restriction shall not prevent the Borrower from obtaining
additional financing in accordance with and subject to the restriction set forth in Section

apply to restrictions and conditions imposed by law or by any Loan Document as in
effect on the date hereof; (B) the foregoing shall not apply to restrictions or conditions
imposed by any agreement relating to secured Indebtedness, in each case permitted by

to customary provisions in leases and other contracts restricting the assignment thereof..

SECTION 6.09. Other Indebtedness and Agreements. (a) Permit any waiver, supplement,
modification, amendment, termination or release of any indenture, instrument or agreement
pursuant to which any Material Indebtedness of the Borrower is outstanding if the effect of such

in a manner materially adverse to the Borrower or the Lender, unless such amended Material
Indebtedness could be incurred under Section 6.01.
(b) (i) Make any distribution, whether in cash, property, securities or a
combination thereof, in respect of, or pay, or offer or commit to pay, or directly or
indirectly redeem, repurchase, retire or otherwise acquire for consideration, or set apart
any sum for the aforesaid purposes, notes or any subordinated Indebtedness (other than

any Indebtedness or preferred Equity Interests that may at the obligor' s option be paid in

agreed to certain restrictions set forth herein with respect to incurring additional Indebtedness
herein. Should the Borrower incur additional Indebtedness from another Person other than the
Lender on terms that are more expensive than the terms of the Loan hereunder, then the terms of
the Loan shall be automatically modified and increased to be equal to the terms of such
additional Indebtedness. In connection with and as result of obtaining such additional
Indebtedness, Lender' s right to receive the Loan Fee from the Litigation Proceeds shall not be
diluted or otherwise reduced or diminished.

warranties made by the Borrower herein and in the certificates or other instruments prepared or
delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be
considered to have been relied upon by the Lender and shall survive the making by the Lender of
its portion of the Loan, regardless of any investigation made by the Lender or on its behalf, and
shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued Basic Interest and
Default Interest owed on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement
or any other Loan Document is outstanding and unpaid and so long as the Lender' s portion of the
Commitment has not been terminated. The obligation to pay the Loan Fee and the provisions of
Section 8.05 hereof shall remain operative and in full force and effect regardless of the expiration
of the term of this Agreement, the consummation of the Transactions contemplated hereby, the
repayment of the Loan, the expiration of the Lender' s portion of the Commitment, the invalidity
or unenforceability of any term or provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
SECTION 8.03. Binding Effect. This Agreement shall become effective in accordance
with the terms set forth herein and shall bind and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and of
their respective successors and assigns, to the extent any such assignment is expressly permitted
SECTION 8.04. Successors and Assigns. (a) Whenever in this Agreement any of the
parties hereto is referred to, such reference shall be deemed to include the permitted successors
and assigns of such party; and all covenants, promises and agreements by or on behalf of the
Borrower and the Lender that are contained in this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit
of their respective successors and assigns.
(b) The Lender may assign to one or more assignees all or a portion of its
interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its
Commitment and its portion of the Loan at the time owing to it).
(c) The Lender may without the consent of the Borrower sell participations to
one or more banks or other entities in all or a portion of its rights and obligations under
this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loan owing to it);
provided, however, that: (i) the Lender' s obligations under this Agreement shall remain
unchanged; (ii) the Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for
the performance of such obligations; (iii) the participating banks or other entities shall be
entitled to the benefit of the protections given to the Lender hereunder and shall be bound
by the confidentiality provisions contained in Section 8.16 hereof to the same extent as if
they were the Lender; and (iv) the Borrower shall continue to deal solely and directly
with the Lender in connection with the Lender' s rights and obligations under this
Agreement, and the Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce the obligations of the
Borrower relating to the Loan and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of
any provision of this Agreement (other than amendments, modifications or waivers
decreasing any fees payable to such participating bank or Person hereunder or the amount
of principal of or the rate at which interest is payable on the Loan in which such
participating bank or Person has an interest, extending any scheduled principal payment
date or date fixed for the payment of interest on the Loan in which such participating
bank or Person has an interest, increasing or extending the Commitment of such
participating bank or Person or releasing all or substantially all of the Collateral). All
amounts payable by the Borrower to the Lender hereunder in respect of any Loan and the
applicability of the protection provisions contained herein shall be determined as if the
Lender had not sold or agreed to sell any participation in the Loan, and as if the Lender
were funding the participated portion of the Loan the same way that it is funding the
portion of the Loan in which no participation has been sold.
(d) The Lender or participant may, in connection with any assignment or
participation or proposed assignment or participation pursuant to this Section 8.04,
disclose to the assignee or participant or proposed assignee or participant any information
relating to the Borrower furnished to the Lender by or on behalf of the Borrower;
provided that, prior to any such disclosure of information designated by the Borrower as
confidential, each such assignee or participant or proposed assignee or participant shall
execute an agreement whereby such assignee or participant shall agree (subject to
customary exceptions) to preserve the confidentiality of such confidential information on
terms no less restrictive than those applicable to the Lender pursuant to Section 8.15.
(e) The Lender may at any time assign all or any portion of its rights under
this Agreement to secure extensions of credit to the Lender or in support of obligations
owed by the Lender; provided that no such assignment shall release the Lender from any
of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such assignee for the Lender as a party
hereto. If the Lender is a fund that invests in bank loans it may (without the consent of
the Borrower) pledge all or any portion of its rights in connection with this Agreement to
the trustee for holders of obligations owed, or securities issued, by such fund as security
for such obligations or securities, provided that any foreclosure or other exercise of
remedies by such trustee shall be subject to the provisions of this Section 8.04 regarding
assignments in all respects. No pledge described in the immediately preceding sentence
shall release such Lender from its obligations hereunder.
(f) The Borrower shall not assign or delegate any of its rights or duties
hereunder without the prior written consent of the Lender, which the Lender may grant or
withhold in its sole discretion, and any attempted assignment without such consent shall
be null and void.

of-pocket expenses, incurred by the Lender and its Affiliates in connection with the
consummation of the Transactions contemplated hereby and the preparation and administration
of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents or in connection with any amendments,
modifications or waivers of the provisions hereof or thereof (whether or not the Transactions
hereby or thereby contemplated shall be consummated) or incurred by the Lender in connection
with the enforcement or protection of its rights in connection with this Agreement and the other
Loan Documents or in connection with the Loan made hereunder (including, with respect to this
Section 8.05(a), the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of Holland & Hart LLP, counsel
for the Lender and, in connection with any such enforcement or protection, the fees, charges and
disbursements of any other counsel for the Lender); provided, however, that the Lenders' legal
fees for the preparation and consummation of the transaction contemplated by this Agreement
and the other Loan Documents and for preparation and consummation of the duplicate originals
of the Loan Documents between the other Lenders and the Borrower shall be capped at
$50,000.00. If, however, such aggregate legal fees exceed such $50,000.00 cap, such excess
legal fees shall be paid from the Litigation Proceeds and shall be in addition and shall not be a
part of the payment of the Loan Fee.
(b) The Borrower agrees to indemnify the Lender and each Related Lender Party
of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an " Indemnitee" ) against,
and to hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages,
liabilities and related expenses, including reasonable counsel fees, charges and
disbursements, incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in any way
connected with, or as a result of: (i) the execution or delivery of this Agreement or any
other Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated thereby, the
performance by the parties thereto of their respective obligations thereunder or the
consummation of the Transactions contemplated thereby (including the Bankruptcy
Case); (ii) the use of the proceeds of the Loan; or (iii) any claim, litigation, investigation
or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether or not any Indemnitee is a party
thereto (and regardless of whether such matter is initiated by a third party or by the
Borrower or any of its Affiliates); provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any
Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or
related expenses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and non-
appealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of
(c) To the extent permitted by Applicable Law, the Borrower shall not assert,
and hereby waives, any claim against any Indemnitee, on any theory of liability, for
special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual
damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement or any
agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the Transactions contemplated hereby
(including the Bankruptcy Case), any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof.
(d) The provisions of this Section 8.05 shall remain operative and in full force
and effect regardless of the expiration of the term of this Agreement, the consummation
of the Transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loan, the expiration of the
Commitment, the invalidity or unenforceability of any term or provision of this
Agreement or any other Loan Document, or any investigation made by or on behalf of the
Lender. All amounts due under this Section 8.05 shall be payable on written demand
SECTION 8.06. Applicable Law. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN
DOCUMENTS (OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN OTHER LOAN
DOCUMENTS) SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH AND GOVERNED BY
THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE.
SECTION 8.07. Waivers; Amendment. (a) No failure or delay of the Lender in exercising
any power or right hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall operate as a waiver
thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment
or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise
thereof or the exercise of any other right or power. The rights and remedies of the Lender
hereunder and under the other Loan Documents are cumulative and are not exclusive of any
rights or remedies that they would otherwise have. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement
or any other Loan Document or consent to any departure by the Borrower therefrom shall in any
event be effective unless the same shall be permitted by Section 8.07(b) below, and then such
waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the purpose for which
given. No notice or demand on the Borrower in any case shall entitle the Borrower to any other
or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.
(b) Neither this Agreement nor any provision hereof may be waived, amended
or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the
Borrower and the Lender.
SECTION 8.08. Interest Rate Limitation. Notwithstanding anything herein to the
contrary, if at any time the Basic Interest and the Default Interest rates applicable to the Loan,
together with all fees, charges and other amounts which are treated as interest on the Loan under
Applicable Law (collectively the " Charges" ), shall exceed the maximum lawful rate (the
" Maximum Rate" ) which may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by the
Lender holding a portion of the Loan in accordance with Applicable Law, the rate of Basic
Interest and Default Interest payable in respect of such Loan hereunder, together with all Charges
payable in respect thereof, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate and, to the extent lawful, the
interest and Charges that would have been payable in respect of such Loan but were not payable
as a result of the operation of this Section 8.08 shall be cumulated and the interest and Charges
payable to the Lender in respect of other loans or periods shall be increased (but not above the
Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the
annual interest rate of fourteen percent (14%) to the date of repayment, shall have been received
by the Lender.
SECTION 8.09. Entire Agreement. This Agreement and the other Loan Documents
constitute the entire contract between the parties relative to the subject matter hereof. Any other
previous agreement among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof is superseded by
this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Nothing in this Agreement or in the other Loan
Documents, expressed or implied, is intended to confer upon any Person (other than the parties
hereto and thereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereunder and, to the extent
expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of the Lender) any rights, remedies,
obligations or liabilities under or by reason of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents.
SECTION 8.10. Waiver Of Jury Trial. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES,
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY
HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN RESPECT OF ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR
INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS
AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS. EACH PARTY HERETO:
(a) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER
PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER
PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE
FOREGOING WAIVER; AND (b) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER
PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND
THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, AS APPLICABLE, BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS,
THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION 8.10.
SECTION 8.11. Severability. In the event any one or more of the provisions contained in
this Agreement or in any other Loan Document should be held invalid, illegal or unenforceable
in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions contained
herein and therein shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby (it being understood that
the invalidity of a particular provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not in and of itself affect
the validity of such provision in any other jurisdiction). The parties shall endeavor in good-faith
negotiations to replace the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the
economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the invalid, illegal or
SECTION 8.12. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts (and by
different parties hereto on different counterparts), each of which shall constitute an original but
all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract, and shall become effective as
provided in Section 8.01 hereof. Delivery of an executed signature page to this Agreement by
facsimile transmission or electronic mail shall be deemed originals for all purposes and shall be
as effective as delivery of a manually signed counterpart of this Agreement.
SECTION 8.13. Headings. Article and Section headings and the Table of Contents used
herein are for convenience of reference only, are not part of this Agreement and are not to affect
the construction of, or to be taken into consideration in interpreting, this Agreement.
SECTION 8.14. Jurisdiction; Consent to Service of Process. (a) The Borrower and
Lender each hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the
exclusive jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court and any appellate court therefrom, in any action
or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, or for
recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably
and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be
heard and determined in such Bankruptcy Court or, to the extent permitted by law, in such
federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or
proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the
judgment or in any other manner provided by law. The Lender waives any right it may otherwise
have to bring any action or proceeding relating to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents
against the Borrower or its respective properties in the courts of any other jurisdiction.
(b) The Borrower and Lender each hereby irrevocably and unconditionally
waives, to the fullest extent it may legally and effectively do so, any objection which it
may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any suit, action or proceeding arising
out of or relating to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents in the Bankruptcy
Court). Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent
permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action
or proceeding in any such court.
(c) Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in
the manner provided for notices in Section 8.01. Nothing in this Agreement will affect
the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted
SECTION 8.15. Confidentiality . The Lender agrees to maintain the confidentiality of the
Information (as defined below), except that Information may be disclosed: (a) to its and its
Affiliates' officers, directors, employees and agents, including accountants, legal counsel and
other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be
informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information
confidential); (b) to the extent requested by any regulatory authority or quasi-regulatory authority
(such as the National Association of Insurance Commissioners); (c) to the extent required by
Applicable Law or by any subpoena or similar legal process (including, in each case, in respect
of the Bankruptcy Case); (d) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or under
the other Loan Documents or any suit, action or proceeding relating to the enforcement of its
rights hereunder or thereunder; (e) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially
the same as those of this Section 8.15 to: (i) any actual or prospective assignee of or participant
in any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents; or (ii)
any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction
relating to the Borrower or any of its obligations; (f) with the consent of the Borrower; or (g) to
the extent such Information becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this
Section 8.15. For the purposes of this Section, " Information" means all information received
from the Borrower and related to the Borrower or its business, other than any such information
that was available to the Lender on a non-confidential basis prior to its disclosure by the
Borrower; provided that, in the case of Information received from the Borrower after the date
hereof, such information is clearly identified at the time of delivery as confidential or such
information is of such a nature that a prudent person would expect such information to be
confidential. Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided in
this Section 8.15 shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person
has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such Information as such
Person would accord its own confidential information.
SECTION 8.16. Collateral Agent Agreement. The Borrower acknowledges and agrees
that the Lender, as Agent and alone, shall have the right to enforce all Lenders' rights relating to
the Collateral under the Loan Documents and under duplicate originals of all of the Loan
Documents executed by the Lenders other than the Lender. This provision shall not be included
in such duplicate originals of the Loan Documents executed by the Lenders other than the
SECTION 8.17 Other Provisions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this
Agreement or the other Loan Documents, the following overriding understandings and
agreements shall prevail in the interpretation and enforcement of the intent of this Agreement
and the other Loan Documents:
(a) Nothing herein shall cause or result in any personal liability to be imposed
on the Trustee individually beyond the duties of a trustee under Applicable Law in the
Bankruptcy Case. The Trustee has no personal liability, and the Lender hereby releases
the Trustee from all personal liability, with respect to his payment of any monetary
obligations related to the Loan or the covenants in the Loan Documents and/or related to
any representations or warranties made herein or in any of the other Loan Documents.
This provision is not intended to relieve the Trustee from performance of any and all of
the obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents in his capacity as
trustee of the Estates.
(b) Other than Lender' s rights expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan
Documents, as the same may be enforced in accordance with Applicable Law, the Lender
does not have any right to interfere with or participate in the conduct or prosecution of
the Litigation or to participate in or approve any settlement of the Litigation.
(c) The Lenders' rights to and in the Collateral are subject to the Lenders'
actual disbursement of the Loan proceeds to the Borrower hereunder on the Closing Date;
provided however, that if after execution of this Agreement the Borrower fails to obtain
the Order contemplated by this Agreement, the Borrower shall pay Lender' s expenses up
to a maximum of $50,000.00, subject to the payment of additional Lender legal fees in
the manner set forth in Section 8.05(a) hereof. In addition, if for any reason the amount
of the Loan is less than Eight Hundred Thousand and 00/100 Dollars ($800,000.00),
Borrower may, in its discretion, either elect to waive such minimum Loan amount
requirement and close the Transactions, or Borrower may elect not to close the
Transactions, in which event Borrower shall nonetheless pay Lender' s legal fees, subject
to the foregoing $50,000.00 cap.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties to this Agreement have executed it as of the date
set forth on the cover page of this Agreement.

may be outstanding under the Credit Agreement, as defined herein, together with Basic Interest
and other interest on the unpaid outstanding balance owing thereunder at the rate or rates or in the
amounts computed in accordance with the Credit Agreement, together with all other amounts due
Lender under this Note and under the Credit Agreement, all payable in the manner and at the time
or times provided herein and in the Credit Agreement.
1. Definitions. Except as otherwise defined herein, each of the capitalized terms
appearing in this Note shall have the meaning ascribed or given to it in that certain Secured Super-
Priority Credit Agreement, of even date herewith, executed by and among the Borrower and
[________________________] (the " Credit Agreement" ). This provision shall apply to all terms
capitalized terms appearing hereinabove and hereinbelow.
2. Loan. The Lender shall make a portion of the Loan set forth on Exhibit " A" hereto
in accordance, subject to, and in the manner set forth in terms and conditions of the Credit
Agreement, the aggregate amount of which Loan shall not exceed Two Million and 00/100 Dollars
3. Interest Rate/Maturity Date. From the date set forth on the face of this Note above
through the Maturity Date, the outstanding balance of the Loan and of any other amounts due
hereunder (other than the Loan Fee and including any amounts added to principal under the Loan
Documents) shall bear interest at the Basic Rate of interest per annum. Any amounts owed
hereunder and not repaid on the Maturity Date shall thereafter bear interest and shall be subject
to the late charges set forth in Section 2.05 of the Credit Agreement.
4. Payment of Loan Fee/Loan Fee Maturity Date. The Borrower shall pay Lender' s
proportionate share of the Loan Fee to the Lender on the Loan Fee Maturity Date. Lender' s
proportionate share of the Loan Fee is equal to the total amount of the Loan Fee owed hereunder
and under the Credit Agreement, multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is Lender' s
portion of the Loan disbursed to the Borrower under the Credit Agreement, and the denominator
of which is the total amount of the Loan disbursed to the Borrower under the Loan Documents
and under duplicate originals of the Loan Documents executed by Lenders other than the Lender

but not paid to the Lender on the Loan Fee Maturity Date shall bear interest at and shall be

other interest shall accrue on the Loan Fee prior to the Loan Fee Maturity Date.

7. Default/Acceleration/Interest at Default Rate/Remedies. If any of the following
(a) the Borrower fails to make payment of any amount due hereunder within
five (5) days after the same becomes due and payable;
(b) any violation or breach of any provision of this Note (other than those
listed in Subsections 6(a) and (b) hereof, each of which has shorter or no time period,
respectively, for curing such defaults or breaches, and which do not require any written
notice thereof to the Borrower) or of any other Loan Document, and if such Event of
Default, breach or default does not involve the payment of a monetary obligation
contained herein or in any of the other Loan Documents; or
(c) any default by the Borrower in the payment or performance of any
obligation, or any Event of Default or any breach of or default under the terms of any
contract or instrument (other than any of the Loan Documents) pursuant to which the
Borrower has incurred any Indebtedness or other obligations or liability to any Person,
including the Lender, and that results in the acceleration of the payment of such
Indebtedness or obligation,
then the default and remedies provisions set forth in the Credit Agreement, including, without
limitation Article VII of the Credit Agreement, shall apply with respect to the Lender' s rights
and remedies, which is not intended to otherwise limit the Lender' s other rights and remedies
under Applicable Law.
8. Limitation of Interest Rate. If any interest is contracted for, charged or received
under this Note or the Credit Agreement, or if all of the principal balance shall be prepaid, so that
under any of such circumstances the amount of interest contracted for, charged or received under
this Note or the Credit Agreement on the principal balance shall exceed the maximum amount of
interest permitted by applicable law, then in such event: (a) the provisions of this paragraph shall
govern and control; (b) neither the Borrower nor any other Person now or hereafter liable for the
payment hereof shall be obligated to pay the amount of such interest to the extent that it is in
excess of the maximum amount of interest permitted by Applicable Law; (c) any such excess
which may have been collected shall be either applied as a credit against the then unpaid
principal balance or refunded to the Borrower, at the option of the Lender; and (d) the effective
rate of interest shall be automatically reduced to the maximum lawful contract rate allowed under
Applicable Law as now or hereafter construed by the courts having jurisdiction thereof. It is
further agreed that without limitation of the foregoing, all calculations of the rate of interest
contracted for, charged or received under this Note or any other Loan Document that are made
for the purpose of determining whether such interest rate exceeds the maximum lawful contract
rate, shall be made, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, by amortizing, prorating,
allocating and spreading in equal parts during the period of the full stated term of the
Indebtedness evidenced hereby, all interest at any time contracted for, charged or received from
the Borrower or otherwise by the Lender in connection with such Indebtedness; provided,
however, that if any Applicable Law is amended or the law of the United States of America
preempts any Applicable Law, so that it becomes lawful for the Lender to receive a greater
interest per annum rate than is presently allowed, the Borrower agrees that, on the effective date
of such amendment or preemption, as the case may be, the lawful maximum hereunder shall be
increased to the maximum interest per annum rate allowed by the amended state law or the law
of the United States of America.
9. Waiver/Consent. The Borrower, co-makers, sureties, endorsers and guarantors, and
each of them (each such person, other than the Borrower, an "Obligor") who may at any time
become liable for the payment hereof jointly and severally consent hereby to any and all
extensions of time, renewals, waivers or modifications of, and all substitutions or releases of,
security or of any party primarily or secondarily liable on this Note or the Credit Agreement or
any term and provision of either, which may be made, granted or consented to by Lender, and
agree that suit may be brought and maintained against any one or more of them, at the election of
the Lender without joinder of any other as a party thereto, and that Lender shall not be required
first to foreclose, proceed against, or exhaust any security hereof in order to enforce payment of
this Note. The Borrower and each Obligor hereby waives presentment, demand for payment,
notice of nonpayment, protest, notice of protest, notice of dishonor, and all other notices in
connection herewith, as well as filing of suit (if permitted by law) and diligence in collecting this
Note or enforcing any of the security hereof, and agrees to pay (if permitted by law) all expenses
incurred in collection, including the Lender' actual attorneys'
10. Credit Agreement/Collateral. This Note evidences all advances made, interest due
and all amounts otherwise owed to Lender under the Credit Agreement, and all amounts due under
the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents are hereby incorporated herein and are due
hereunder. This Note is executed in conjunction with the Credit Agreement and is secured by the
liens and security interests created under the Loan Documents. Reference is made to the Credit
Agreement for provisions relating to repayment of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note,
including mandatory repayment, acceleration following default, late charges, default rate of
interest, limitations on interest, restrictions on prepayment, and participation interest (if any). In
addition, the Lender and the other Lenders shall enter into the Collateral Agent Agreement under
which the Lender shall act as Agent in accordance with the terms thereof.
11. Governing Law. This Note has been executed and delivered in and shall be
construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of Delaware and of the United
States of America.

OTHER DOCUMENTS OR AGREEMENTS RELATING TO THIS TRANSACTION OR
ANY RELATED TRANSACTION. IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, THIS NOTE MAY
BE FILED AS A WRITTEN CONSENT TO A TRIAL BY THE COURT.

Documents constitute the entire agreement of the Borrower and the Lender with respect to the
subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior understandings, agreements and representations,
express or implied.
14. No Waiver. No delay or failure or forbearance or other act of commission or
omission on the part of the Lender in exercising any rights under this Note or the other Loan
Documents on default by the Borrower including, without limitation, the Lender' s right to
accelerate, nor reinstatement of this Note by the Lender after such exercise, shall operate as a
