THIS MODIFICATION OF CREDIT LINE DEED OF TRUST (this “Modification”) dated April 26, 2016, is made and executed among OPTICAL CABLE CORPORATION, a Virginia corporation, whose address is 5290 Concourse Drive, Roanoke, Virginia 24019 ("Grantor"); ANDREW B. AGEE, whose business address is 36 Church Avenue SW, Roanoke, VA 24011, as Trustee ("Grantee," also referred to below as "Trustee"); and BANK OF NORTH CAROLINA, organized and existing under the laws of North Carolina (and successor by merger with VALLEY BANK), whose address is PO Box 1148, Thomasville, NC 27361-1148 (“Beneficiary,” also referred to below as "Lender").

 

THIS IS A CREDIT LINE DEED OF TRUST. The name of the Beneficiary is Bank of North Carolina and the address at which communications may be mailed or delivered to the Beneficiary is PO Box 1148, Thomasville, North Carolina, 27361-1148. The maximum aggregate amount of principal to be secured at any one time is $17,000,000.00. The name and address of the Beneficiary are changed from the information listed in the Deed of Trust.
