The Facility

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Lender hereby agrees to make available to the Borrower a Facility equal to the Total Commitments.

The Borrower may utilise the Facility by delivering to the Lender a duly completed Utilisation Request at any time during the period commencing from the date of this Agreement and ending on May 31, 2014 (the “Availability Period”).  Lender shall promptly issue to Borrower a Confirmation upon receipt of a Utilisation Request and satisfaction of the conditions precedent in Section 4 below. The utilisation shall be referred to herein as the “Term Loan” which shall be for an amount not less than USD 2,000,000 (two million Dollars) and in integral multiples of USD 1,000,000 (one million Dollars). The Borrower may not deliver a Utilisation Request if as a result more than three Term Loan would be outstanding.

No amounts may be drawn under the Facility after the last day of the Availability Period.

The Term Loan shall be made available 10 (ten) Business Days after the Utilisation Request has been received by the Lender, but under no circumstances prior to the Closing Date, by wire transfer to the Term Loan Account, or such other account of the Borrower as notified by the Borrower in writing to the Lender.


Purpose of Facility

The Term Loan shall be used by the Borrower for its acquisitions and general corporate purposes, which in the reasonable opinion of the Borrower’s management is in the interest of the Borrower.

Term Loan

Upon satisfaction of all conditions precedent listed in Article 4 (Conditions Precedent), the Lender will direct KBC Bank NV to disburse the amount of the Term Loan specified in the relevant Utilisation Request in USD in accordance with the terms hereof and in accordance with the relevant Confirmation to the Term Loan Account or to the bank account notified by the Borrower in writing to the Lender at least 5 (five) Business Days prior to the Closing Date.

The Term Loan will be repayable in accordance with Sections 3.4 and 3.5 and bear interest in accordance with Section 3.2.

Ranking of Obligations

The Borrower's obligations to the Lender hereunder shall constitute senior indebtedness of the Borrower and shall at all times rank no less than pari passu with all other unsecured obligations of the Borrower.



All payments to be made by the Borrower to the Lender under this Agreement shall be made in USD in immediately available funds, without set-off or deduction, to the Bank Account or to any other bank account to be notified subsequently to the Borrower by the Lender in writing.

Interest on the Outstanding Principal Amount shall accrue daily from the date of drawdown of the Term Loan at the Interest Rate and shall be calculated semi-annually by the Lender on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days elapsed, and is payable semi-annually in arrears on each Interest Payment Date to the Bank Account. The Lender shall send to the Borrower the detailed calculation of the payable accrued interest at least ten (10) Business Days prior to each Interest Payment Date.
In no event shall the interest rate applicable hereunder exceed the maximum rate of interest allowed by Law; any payment of interest or in the nature of interest in excess of such limitation shall be credited as a repayment of principal.
If an Interest Period would otherwise end on a day which is not a Business Day, that Interest Period will instead end on the next Business Day.


Default Interest

Any payment due under this Agreement (whether principal, interest, fees or other) which is not made on the due date in accordance with this Agreement shall bear an interest rate of 12 % (twelve per cent) per annum from the due date until such payment is fully made. Default interest shall accrue automatically as of right without need of notification to the Borrower. Default Interest (if unpaid) arising on an overdue amount will be compounded at the end of each Interest Period applicable to that overdue amount but will remain immediately due and payable.

If the Lender fails to fund on a timely basis as set forth in this Agreement, the Lender will pay to the Borrower Default Interest on the amount not funded as requested. This will be a credit against interest owed.

For the avoidance of doubt, Default Interest shall apply to both (i) the Lender for any funding amounts not delivered within the timeframe set forth in this Agreement and (ii) to the Borrower for any repayments not made within the timeframe set forth in this Agreement.


Subject to the application of Section 3.5 (Voluntary Prepayment), the Borrower shall repay the Outstanding Principal Amount in whole to the Bank Account on the Maturity Date.

Voluntary Prepayment

The Borrower shall be entitled to prepay, at any time, the Outstanding Principal Amount, in full or in part, in accordance with the procedures specified in this Section 3.5 (the "Voluntary Prepayment") and subject to delivering a Notice of Prepayment to the Lender not less than 10 Business Days prior to the Prepayment Date (as defined below); provided that such prepayment shall be an integral multiple of USD 1,000,000 (one million Dollars).

The Notice of Prepayment shall specify the date where the proposed prepayment is to be made (the "Prepayment Date") and the principal amount of such prepayment (the "Prepayment Amount"). A Notice of Prepayment once delivered to the Lender is irrevocable and the Borrower shall be obligated to pay the Prepayment Amount to the Lender on the Prepayment Date, together with the additional amount set forth in Paragraph (C) below.

In addition to the Prepayment Amount, the Borrower shall pay to the Lender on the Prepayment Date the Interest accrued on the Prepayment Amount up to the Prepayment Date.

Any Prepayment Amounts repaid by the Borrower to the Lender may not be re-borrowed or re-loaned. Any Voluntary Prepayments will reduce permanently the aggregate maximum amount of the Facility.



All payments made by the Borrower hereunder shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for, or on account of, any present or future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions, charges or withholdings, and all liabilities with respect thereto now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any governmental authority, excluding taxes imposed on the net income of the Lender and all income and franchise taxes applicable to the Lender (all such non-excluded taxes, levies, imposts deductions, charges, withholdings and liabilities, "Taxes"). If the Borrower shall be required by law to deduct or withhold any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder, (i) the sum payable shall be increased to the extent necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this subsection), the Lender receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make such deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant tax authority or other authority in accordance with applicable Law.  In addition, the Borrower agrees to pay any present or future stamp or documentary taxes or any other excise or property taxes, charges or similar levies which arise from any payment made hereunder or from the execution, delivery, assignment, transfer, registration or enforcement of, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement ("Other Taxes").  If the Borrower fails to pay any such deduction or withholding when due to the appropriate governmental authority, the Borrower shall indemnify the Lender upon demand for the full amount of Taxes or Other Taxes (including any Taxes or Other Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this subsection) that may become payable or have been paid by the Lender as a result of such failure, and any liability (including penalties, interest and expenses) arising there from or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally asserted, and the Lender's calculations of the amount of such Taxes or Other Taxes shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

Failure or delay of less than thirty (30) calendar days from the date such compensation may be requested on the part of the Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Article 3 shall not constitute a waiver of the Lender's right to demand such compensation.


The obligation of the Lender to advance the initial Term Loan under the Facility on the Closing Date is subject to the satisfaction or, at the Lender’s discretion, the waiver (in whole or in part) of the following conditions precedent:
This Agreement shall have been duly authorized, executed and delivered by each Party thereto and shall be in full force and effect;

The Borrower shall have delivered to the Lender at the latest on the Closing Date the Borrower’s board of directors’ resolution(s) approving the entry into, execution and performance by the Borrower of its obligations under this Agreement.
