1.1       Section 2 of the Loan Agreement.   Section 2 of the Loan Agreement is amended to add the following new section 2.1.2:

“2.1.2  Equipment Facility B.

(a)        Equipment B Advances.   Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Bank agrees to lend to Borrower, during Draw Period B, equipment advances (each an “Equipment B Advance” and collectively the “Equipment B Advances”) in an aggregate amount not to exceed Equipment Line B. The proceeds of the Equipment B Advances shall be used solely to reimburse Borrower for the purchase of Eligible Equipment purchased within ninety (90) days (determined based upon the applicable invoice date of such Eligible Equipment) (other than the initial Equipment B Advance of $1,000,000, which shall not be subject to such 90 day lookback) of the Equipment B Advance and to purchase Eligible Equipment; provided however, the initial Equipment B Advance of $1,000,000 funded on the Second Amendment Effective Date (the “Initial Equipment B Advance”) shall not require invoice documentation. Other than the Initial Equipment B Advance, no Equipment B Advance may exceed 100% of the total invoice for Eligible Equipment. Unless otherwise agreed to by Bank, not more than 35% of the proceeds of the $3,000,000 of Equipment Line B remaining after the Initial Equipment B Advance shall be used to finance Other Equipment. Each Equipment B Advance must be in an


amount equal to at least $100,000. Borrower may not request more than twelve (12) Equipment B Advances hereunder. After repayment, no Equipment B Advance may be reborrowed.

(b)        Repayment. Borrower shall repay each Equipment B Advance pursuant to the terms set forth in its corresponding Loan Supplement. For each Equipment B Advance, Borrower shall make equal monthly payments of principal and interest, in advance, calculated by Bank based upon (i) the amount of the Equipment B Advance, (ii) the Basic Rate (which shall be fixed at the time of each Funding Date), and (iii) an amortization schedule equal to the Repayment Period, beginning on the first day of the month following the month in which the Funding Date occurs (or commencing on the Funding Date if the Funding Date is the first day of the month) with respect to such Equipment B Advance and continuing thereafter during the Repayment Period on each Payment Date. All outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest is due and payable in full on the last Payment Date with respect to such Equipment B Advance. An Equipment B Advance may only be prepaid, at Borrower’s option, in accordance with Sections 2.1.2(c), (d), (e) and (f).

(c)        Final Payment. On the earliest of (i) the final Payment Date with respect to each Equipment B Advance, (ii) any prepayment (to the extent permitted hereunder) of such Equipment B Advance or (iii) the termination of Equipment Line B, Borrower shall pay, in addition to the outstanding principal, accrued and unpaid interest, all future Scheduled Payments (except that such future Scheduled Payments shall not be payable with respect to a prepayment made pursuant to Section 2.1.2(d) or (f) below), in each case on such Equipment B Advance, and all other amounts due on such date with respect to such Equipment B Advance, plus an amount equal to the Final Payment on such Equipment B Advance.

(d)        Prepayment Upon an Event of Loss. Borrower shall bear the risk of any loss, theft, destruction, or damage of or to the Financed Equipment. If during the term of this Agreement an Event of Loss occurs, then if no Event of Default has occurred or is continuing, within ten (10) days following the Event of Loss, at Borrower’s option, Borrower shall (i) pay to Bank, with respect to the Equipment B Advance made with respect to the Financed Equipment subject to the Event of Loss, all outstanding principal, all accrued and unpaid interest to the date of the prepayment, and the Final Payment; or (ii) repair or replace any Financed Equipment subject to the Event of Loss provided the repaired or replaced Financed Equipment is of equal or like value to the Financed Equipment subject to the Event of Loss and provided further that Bank has a first priority perfected security interest in such repaired or replaced Financed Equipment.

(e)        Prepayment.    If the Equipment B Advances are voluntarily prepaid or accelerated following the occurrence of an Event of Default, Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank an amount equal to the sum of (i) all outstanding principal plus accrued and unpaid interest, (ii) all future Scheduled Payments, (iii) the Final Payment, and (iv) all other sums, if any, that shall have become due and payable, including interest at the Default Rate with respect to any past due amounts, in each case with respect to the Equipment B Advances being prepaid.

(f)        Prepayment Upon Sale or Trade of Finance Equipment. If, during the term of this Agreement, any item of Financed Equipment is sold or traded, then within ten (10) days following such sale or trade, Borrower shall (i) pay to Bank on account of the Obligations all accrued interest to the date of the prepayment, the Final Payment, and all outstanding principal owing with respect to the Equipment B Advance made with respect to the Financed Equipment


subject to such sale or trade; or (ii) provide other equipment in replacement of the sold or traded Financed Equipment, provided the replacement Financed Equipment is of equal or like value to the Financed Equipment sold or traded, is acceptable to Bank in its sole discretion, and provided further that Bank has a first priority perfected security interest in such replacement Financed Equipment.”

1.2       Section 2.2(a) (Payment of Interest on the Credit Extensions) of the Loan Agreement. Section 2.2(a) of the Loan Agreement is amended and restated in its entirety to read as follows:

“(a)      Interest Rate. Subject to Section 2.2(b), the principal amount outstanding for each Equipment Advance shall accrue interest at a per annum rate equal to the Basic Rate determined by Bank on the Funding Date for such Equipment Advance. Subject to Section 2.2(b), the principal amount outstanding for each Equipment B Advance shall accrue interest at a per annum rate equal to the Basic Rate determined by Bank on the Funding Date for such Equipment B Advance.”

On each Funding Date, Bank shall specify in the Loan Supplement for each Equipment Advance or Equipment B Advance, as the case may be, the Basic Rate, and the Payment Dates. At Bank’s discretion, Bank shall have the opportunity to confirm that, upon filing the UCC-1 financing statement covering the Equipment described on the Loan Supplement, Bank shall have a first priority perfected security interest in such Equipment.
