Bank shall render to Borrower a monthly statement of Borrower’s Loan Account established pursuant to this Agreement showing all debits and credits thereto, which statement of account shall be considered correct and binding upon Borrower unless Borrower should give to Bank, within seven (7) days from receipt of such statement, written notice of any exceptions thereto, each of which exception shall be specified in such notice. It is the intention of the parties that Borrower’s indebtedness under this Agreement shall be evidenced by this Agreement and the Master Promissory Note.

All documentation shall be satisfactory in form and substance to Bank. All such documentation requiring the signature of the Borrower shall have been signed by a duly authorized officer of Borrower, and Bank shall be and it is hereby so authorized, to rely upon any signature on any such document as having been authorized. Bank may, in its sole and absolute discretion, agree to and make an Advance to cover the Closing Check presented with regard to an Eligible Mortgage Loan(s) regardless of whether all of the documents required by Section 2.3.5. have been delivered to Bank within two (2) Business Days after the Eligible Mortgage Loan is closed if the requirements of Sections 2.3.1. through 2.3.4. have been met provided, however, that Bank’s determination to waive the requirements of the delivery of the Advance Documents to the Bank in accordance with Section 2.3.5. and to Advance funds sufficient to cover the Closing Check issued to the Closing Agent in respect to the particular Eligible Mortgage Loan(s) shall not be deemed to be or construed as a waiver of such term or condition with respect to any other Eligible Mortgage Loan or Loans, nor shall such operate as a waiver of Borrower’s breach of this Agreement by its failure to fulfill all conditions precedent. In such event, notwithstanding Bank’s decision to make the Advance sufficient to cover the Closing Check, Bank still may, in its sole and absolute discretion, declare an Event of Default hereunder and take such steps or actions hereunder or under the Master Promissory Note as are available, including, but not limited to, refusing to make any further Advances under this Agreement and/or accelerating the maturity of the Master Promissory Note.

Notwithstanding the occurrence of Termination Date, the Bank, at its sole and absolute discretion, may thereafter permit the Borrower to draw funds hereunder in accordance with the terms, conditions and provisions hereof. Any draws permitted by Bank after the Termination Date shall not constitute an extension, renewal or modification of the Line of Credit or the Termination Date, the waiver by Bank of any Event of Default, or otherwise obligate the Bank to permit subsequent draws hereunder.

 

3.2. Additional Documentation. Borrower covenants that it will promptly obtain and deliver, or cause to be obtained and delivered any additional loan or other documentation reasonably requested by Bank which is customary in the mortgage banking business in order to make each Eligible Mortgage Loan marketable.

It is agreed that interest on the Master Promissory Note shall be calculated on the basis of a 365 (366 in Leap year) day year unless calculation on that basis would result in Bank receiving interest at a rate in excess of the maximum rate of interest which Bank is permitted by law to contract for and charge, in which case such

The Borrower shall promptly reimburse the Bank for all costs and expenses incurred in connection with the preparation and filing of any such document, including, but not limited to, stamp taxes, recording taxes, privilege taxes, and filing fees. The Bank shall send a copy of any such filing to the Borrower provided, however, that the failure to send that copy shall not affect the validity or enforceability of any such filing.

Notwithstanding the provision of such nonconforming documentation to Bank, Borrower represents and warrants that the use of such nonconforming documentation in connection with the Eligible Mortgage Loan will not violate the Lock in respect thereof, will not give the Qualified Investor the right to refuse to Purchase the Eligible Mortgage Loan for the Purchase Price, and will not otherwise adversely affect the marketability of such Eligible Mortgage Loan in the secondary mortgage market.

$30,000,000.00

June 1, 2006                                        

Memphis, Tennessee                                        

FOR VALUE RECEIVED, the undersigned (“Borrower”)(jointly and severally if more than one) promises to pay to the order of First Tennessee Bank, Memphis, Tennessee (“Bank”), or to the order of any subsequent holder hereof, in lawful money of the United States of America, the principal sum of the aggregate unpaid principal amount of all advances pursuant to that certain Mortgage Warehouse Loan Agreement of even date herewith (“Agreement”) between the undersigned and the Bank, together with interest thereon at the rate hereinafter specified from the Funding Date of each advance. The maximum aggregate unpaid principal amount of all advances pursuant to the Agreement shall be $30,000,000.00 unless the Bank, in its sole discretion, honors Borrower requests for aggregate advances in excess of $30,000,000.00.

Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning defined within the Agreement.

Subject to the limitations hereinafter set forth, the disbursed and unpaid principal balances of the indebtedness evidenced hereby shall bear interest prior to repayment at a variable rate per annum (“Warehouse Rate”) which shall, from day to day, be equal to the lesser of (a) the maximum effective variable contract rate of interest (“Maximum Rate”) which Bank may from time to time lawfully charge, or (b) a rate equal to One Month LIBOR plus 2.10%. It is agreed that interest shall be calculated on the basis of a 365 (366 in Leap year) day year unless calculation on that basis would result in Bank receiving interest at a rate in excess of the maximum rate of interest which Bank is permitted by law to contract for and charge, in which case such indebtedness shall bear interest at such maximum rate. The indebtedness shall also bear interest after maturity (whether by demand, acceleration or otherwise) at the maximum rate of interest which Bank is permitted by law to contract for and charge thereon.

Principal and interest as computed above shall be payable in the following manner:

As to Principal and accrued interest, each advance hereunder, and interest accrued thereon shall be payable on the earlier of:

 

  (i) Forty-five (45) days from the Advance Date of the Eligible Mortgage Loan,

 

  (ii) On the date of funding of the Purchase Price by any Qualified Investor for the Purchase of an Eligible Mortgage Loan which was funded by the advance, or

 

  (iii) Termination of this Note.

Maturity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire outstanding principal balance hereunder together with all accrued but unpaid interest shall be due and payable in full on May 31, 2007.

The Bank may, in its sole discretion, honor one or more advances requested hereunder by the Borrower after maturity, and any such advance shall be considered an extension of credit hereunder and governed by the terms of the Agreement. Any such advance shall be immediately due and payable.

Any unpaid principal and interest accrued thereon shall also bear interest, from the date of maturity as set forth above, (whether by demand, acceleration or otherwise) until the unpaid advance is fully satisfied, at the maximum rate of interest which Bank is permitted by law to contract for and charge on the date hereof or such maximum rate so permitted on the maturity date hereof, whichever is greater.

The Base Rate is one of several interest rate indices employed by the Bank. The undersigned acknowledges that the Bank has made, and may hereafter make, loans bearing interest at rates which are higher or lower than the Base Rate.

Any renewal or extension of the debt evidenced hereby shall bear interest at the rate of interest set by Bank at that time, not to exceed the maximum rate which Bank is permitted by law to contract for and charge either on the date hereof or on the date of such renewal or extension, whichever is greater.

All installments, prepayments and payments of principal and interest shall be applied first to fees, then to interest, and the balance to principal due hereunder and are payable at Bank, 165 Madison, Memphis, Tennessee 38103, or such other place or places as the holder hereof may from time to time designate in writing, in lawful money of the United States of

Upon default of the Borrower, the undersigned hereby agree(s) to pay all reasonable expenses directly related to the loan evidenced hereby incurred or to be incurred in its making, servicing or collection, including without limitation reasonable attorney’s fees.
