2.6.2Application of Payments During Event of Default

33

153758634 Loan Agreement (CT/NJ Loan) - GTJ Portfolio Refinancing - AIG


shall be made to Administrative Agent not later than 2:00 P.M. New York time, on the date when due and shall be made by electronic funds transfer from a bank account established and maintained by Borrowers for such purpose in immediately available funds in lawful money of the United States of America.  Any funds received by Administrative Agent after such time shall, for all purposes hereof, be deemed to have been paid on the next succeeding Business Day.  For the purposes of this Section 2.7, no payment or prepayment under this Agreement shall be deemed to be received by Administrative Agent unless and until such payment or prepayment is available to Administrative Agent in the account designated by Administrative Agent for such payment or prepayment.  Whenever any payment to be made under the Notes, this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents shall be stated to be due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment may be made on the immediately succeeding Business Day.  All payments made by Borrowers under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents shall be made without setoff, counterclaim or deduction of any kind and shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any present or future income, stamp or other taxes, levies, imposts, duties, charges, fees, deductions or withholdings, now or hereafter imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by any Governmental Authority.  Borrowers shall verbally verify all payment instructions before transmitting any payment or prepayment of funds by wire transfer or other means of payment.

2.8Usury Savings Clause

.  It is expressly stipulated and agreed to be the intent of Borrowers and Administrative Agent at all times to comply with all applicable Legal Requirements governing the highest lawful interest rate.  If any applicable Legal Requirement is ever judicially interpreted so as to render usurious any amount called for under the Notes or under any of the other Loan Documents, or contracted for, charged, taken, reserved or received with respect to the Secured Obligations, or if acceleration of the maturity of the Notes, any prepayment by Borrowers, or any other circumstance whatsoever, results in Borrowers having paid any interest in excess of that permitted by any applicable Legal Requirement, then it is the express intent of Borrowers, Administrative Agent and Lender that all excess amounts theretofore collected by Administrative Agent and/or Lender be credited to the Principal Indebtedness (or, at Administrative Agent’s option, paid over to Borrowers), and the provisions of this Agreement and other Loan Documents immediately be deemed reformed and the amounts thereafter collectible hereunder and thereunder reduced, without the necessity of the execution of any new document, so as to comply with all applicable Legal Requirements, but so as to permit the recovery of the fullest amount otherwise called for hereunder and thereunder.  The right to accelerate maturity of the Notes does not include the right to accelerate any interest that has not otherwise accrued on the date of such acceleration, and Administrative Agent and Lender do not intend to collect any unearned interest in the event of acceleration.  All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Administrative Agent or Lender for the use, forbearance or detention of the Secured Obligations shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Legal Requirements, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of such Secured Obligations until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of such Secured Obligations does not exceed the maximum rate or amount of interest permitted under any Legal Requirements.

2.9Release of Collateral

.  Upon indefeasible payment and performance (in full) of all of the Secured Obligations (other than any such obligations that survive repayment of the Loan), Administrative Agent shall, at the request of Borrowers and at the sole cost and expense of Borrowers, release or cause to be released all Liens with respect to all Collateral (or, at Borrowers’

34

153758634 Loan Agreement (CT/NJ Loan) - GTJ Portfolio Refinancing - AIG


request, assign such Liens with respect to all or certain Collateral as Borrowers may request), in each case, pursuant to documentation in form and substance satisfactory to Administrative Agent.

40

153758634 Loan Agreement (CT/NJ Loan) - GTJ Portfolio Refinancing - AIG


such Capital Expenditures, or portions thereof, in writing.  In addition, notwithstanding any other term or provision of this Article 3, during any calendar year (or portion thereof) in which an Approved Budget is required hereunder, Borrowers shall not be entitled to receive any disbursements into the Borrowers’ Operating Account for any Borrower Funded Operating Shortfalls (whether from Cash Flow or from the Excess Cash Subaccount) until and unless Administrative Agent and Borrowers have agreed upon an Approved Budget (and not an Interim Budget) for each Individual Property for the then‑current calendar year (or portion thereof, as applicable).

B.Borrowers shall use commercially reasonable efforts to operate each Individual Property in accordance with the applicable Approved Budget or the applicable Interim Budget (as applicable) for the applicable calendar year (or portion thereof).  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrowers are permitted to deviate from the Approved Budget or the Interim Budget (as applicable) to the extent necessary for Non-Discretionary Expenses or as otherwise approved in writing by Administrative Agent (such permitted deviations referred to as the “Permitted Operating Expense Deviations”).

3.9Administrative Agent’s DACA Conversion Option. Borrowers acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Administrative Agent reserves the right to convert the cash management structure set forth herein to a deposit-account-control-agreement-based structure, provided that the only events that shall trigger cash management under such structure shall be the Cash Management Events (such conversion, a “DACA Conversion”).

.  Administrative Agent, Lender and Borrowers hereby acknowledge that upon the filing of a bankruptcy petition by or against any Borrower under any Bankruptcy Laws, the Account Collateral (whether collected or uncollected, or then due or becoming due thereafter) shall not be deemed to be property of such Borrower’s bankruptcy estate within the meaning of Section 541 of the Bankruptcy Code.  In the event, however, that a court of competent jurisdiction determines that, notwithstanding the foregoing characterization of the Account Collateral by Borrowers, Administrative Agent and Lender, the Account Collateral does constitute property of any Borrower’s bankruptcy estate, then Administrative Agent, Lender and
