Defined Terms.
The word “Collateral” means, collectively, all of the now-owned and hereafter acquired, created or arising tangible and intangible property of the Guarantor, including, without limitation, all of the Units (including any shares or other securities into which the Units may be convertible or exchangeable), and any proceeds thereof.
The word “Indebtedness” means any and all obligations, indebtedness, and liabilities of the Borrower to the Holders arising under or evidenced by the Note Purchase Agreement or the Notes, whether matured or unmatured, now or hereafter existing or created, and becoming due and payable.
The Guarantor unconditionally guarantees to the Holders the full, prompt, and punctual performance and payment of the Indebtedness when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) in accordance with the Note Purchase Agreement and the Notes. This Guaranty is irrevocable, unconditional and absolute, and if for any reason all or any portion of the Indebtedness shall not be paid when due, the Guarantor will immediately pay the Indebtedness to the Holders or such other persons entitled to payment of the Indebtedness, in U.S. dollars, without set-off, counterclaim, taxes or other defense.
Duration of Guaranty.
This Guaranty will take effect when received by the Holders, without the necessity of any acceptance by the Holders, and will continue in full force until such time as all obligations of the Borrower to the Holders under the Note Purchase Agreement and the Notes are finally, indefeasibly and fully paid and satisfied.

Subordination of Borrower’s Debts to Guarantor.
The Guarantor agrees that the Indebtedness of the Borrower to the Holders shall be prior to any claim that the Guarantor may now have or hereafter acquire against the Borrower, whether or not the Borrower becomes insolvent. The Guarantor hereby expressly subordinates any claim the Guarantor may have against the Borrower, upon any account whatsoever, including any liens and rights of any kind that the Guarantor now has, may hereafter acquire or be deemed to have acquired, to any claim that the Holders may now or hereafter have against the Borrower. In the event of insolvency and consequent liquidation, or otherwise, the assets of the Borrower applicable to the payment of the claims of both the Holders and the Guarantor shall be paid first to the Holders and shall be first applied by the Holders to indefeasibly satisfy all of the Indebtedness of the Borrower to the Holders.
As security for any and all of the obligations of the Guarantor under this Guaranty, now existing or hereafter arising hereunder with respect to the Indebtedness (collectively, the “Liabilities”), the Guarantor hereby assigns, pledges and transfers to the Holders, and grants to the Holders a first priority lien upon and a security interest in any and all of the Guarantor’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Collateral, in each case regardless of where such Collateral may be located or whether such Collateral is in possession of the Guarantor or any third party. The Holders are hereby irrevocably authorized by the Guarantor to execute and file any initial financing statements (and any amendments or continuation statements with respect thereto) in any applicable jurisdictions where, in the opinion of the Holders, such filing is appropriate to protect and perfect their rights, and to take such other actions as to which the Holders determine it is necessary, desirable, or advisable in order to protect, perfect, or maintain the first priority of the Holder’s security interest in such (or any other) Collateral.
The Guarantor will cause the Company in respect of Collateral not represented by certificates to mark their books and records with the numbers and face amounts of all such Collateral not represented by certificates and all rollovers and replacements therefor to reflect the security granted by the Guarantor under this Guaranty. The Guarantor will take any actions necessary to cause the Company to take such action as is required to allow the Holder to maintain a first priority lien over the Collateral. The Guarantor represents and warrants that none of the Collateral is held with a securities intermediary.
Representations and Warranties.
The Guarantor hereby represents and warrants to the Holders as follows: (a) it has full power and authority and legal right to pledge the Collateral to the Holders pursuant to this Guaranty, and this Guaranty constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of the Guarantor, enforceable in accordance with its terms, (b) the execution, delivery and performance of this Guaranty and the other instruments contemplated herein will not violate any provision of any order or decree of any court or governmental instrumentality or of any mortgage, indenture, contract or other agreement to which the Guarantor is a party or by which the Guarantor and the Collateral may be bound, and will not result in the creation or imposition of any lien, charge or encumbrance on, or security interest in, any of the Guarantor’s properties pursuant to the provisions of such mortgage, indenture, contract or other agreement, (c) it owns and has good and marketable title to all of the Collateral free and clear of any claims, defects, liens, security interests, pledges, title retention agreements, or other encumbrances and (d) this Guaranty is effective to create a valid and continuing lien on the Collateral in favor of the Holders, prior to all other liens, except permitted liens that would be prior to liens in favor of the Holders as a matter of law.

Until all Indebtedness is fully and indefeasibly paid and discharged, the Guarantor covenants and agrees as follows: (a) the Guarantor shall not transfer, assign or dispose of all or any portion of the Collateral nor amend, discharge or take any other action with respect to the Collateral that would diminish the Guarantor’s or any Holder’s right to fully collect the Collateral, (b) the Guarantor shall not permit or suffer to exist any liens, security interests, or adverse claims encumbering any of the Collateral, (c) the Guarantor will defend the Collateral and the security interest granted herein against all claims and demands of all persons and pay, upon demand, all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) incurred by the Holders in connection with any such claims or demands and (d) the Guarantor shall comply in all material respects with all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations and ordinances applicable to it or the Collateral.

All cash proceeds received by the Holders in respect of any sale of, collection from, or other realization upon, all or any part of the Collateral shall be applied by the Holders first to the payment of the reasonable costs of any such sale or enforcement, then to reimburse the Holders for any damages, costs or expenses incurred by the Holders as a result of an Event of Default, and then to payment of all or any part of the Indebtedness. In addition, the Guarantor hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under the Notes, each the Holders as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact and proxy, with full irrevocable power of substitution for and in the name of the Guarantor or in such attorney-in-fact’s own name, with respect to the Collateral from time to time in the discretion of such attorney-in-fact, for so long as an Event of Default exists, to exercise for any purpose any and all voting rights and other powers arising from or relating to the Collateral, and to otherwise take any and all appropriate action and to execute any and all documents and instruments which may be necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes of this Guaranty, without notice to or consent of the Guarantor.
