1.Ranking of Loans; Subordination


1.1.The Parties hereby agree that any Shareholder Loan shall be subordinate and junior in right of payment to the Loan. For the avoidance of doubt, BSC shall not accept any repayments of any Shareholder Loan prior to the full repayment of the Loan.


1.2.For so long as the Loan has not been repaid in full, BSC shall not be entitled to take any enforcement action pursuant to any Shareholder Loan, including realization of a relevant pledge, if any, without the prior written consent of the Lender, unless it is paid in accordance with Sections 10.15-10.17 of the Loan Agreement and this Agreement.





Notwithstanding the foregoing, BSC agrees that if the Lender consents to the realization of a pledge created pursuant to any Shareholder Loan, the proceeds of the realization of such pledge shall be transferred to the Lender and applied to the discharge of the Loan. Thereafter, the Lender shall transfer any remaining proceeds to BSC to be applied towards the discharge of the Shareholder Loan.


1.3.Subject to Sections 10.15-10.17 of the Loan Agreement, the Parties agree that for so long as the Loan has not been repaid in full, BSC agrees not to assign, transfer, subordinate, or request or accept the payment of all or any part of the Shareholder Loan.


1.4.In the event of any insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings or any receivership, liquidation, reorganization of the Borrower or any other similar proceedings in connection therewith, BSC hereby agrees that the Loan shall be repaid in full prior to BSC receiving any payment or distribution of any kind or character, whether in cash or property or securities which may be payable or deliverable in any such proceedings in respect of any outstanding amounts pursuant to any Shareholder Loan.


For the avoidance of doubt, it is clarified that to the extent that any proceeds are received by BSC, such proceeds shall be transferred to the Lender in order for the Loan to be discharged. Thereafter, the Lender shall transfer any remaining proceeds to BSC to be applied towards the discharge of the Shareholder Loan.

2.2.The failure of either Party to require performance of any provision of this Agreement shall not be construed as a waiver of such Party’s rights to insist on performance of that same provision, or any other provision, at some other time. No right may be waived except in writing, and signed by the Party entitled to assert the right. The waiver by either Party of any right created by this Agreement in one or more instances shall not be construed as a further continuing waiver of such right or any other right created by this Agreement.

The decision of the Arbitrator shall constitute an award but shall be subject to appeal in accordance with Section 29B of the Arbitration Law.
