3.              Purchase of Accounts Receivable. Factor agrees to purchase from Company at the office of Factor all Accounts Receivable first approved by Factor in writing as to credit risk and terms of sale (each such approved Account Receivable being herein called a "Factor Risk Account Receivable"). All orders from Customers including the amount and terms of each proposed sale or service to such Customers shall be submitted in advance of purchase or rendition of service to Factor for prior written approval, which may be granted or withheld at Factor's sole discretion. Factor's approval is subject to withdrawal either orally or in writing at any time prior to delivery of merchandise or rendition of services, and shall be deemed no longer effective in any event if Company's delivery of merchandise or rendition of services is made more than thirty (30) days beyond the date specified for such delivery or rendition in the terms of sales submitted to Factor for its approval, or more than thirty (30) days from the date of Factor's approval if no delivery or rendition date has been specified.

Upon the receipt of any payment in collected funds from or issuance of credit to a Customer with respect to a Factor Risk Account Receivable, the Accounts Receivable of such Customer in excess of the Customer credit line shall, to the extent of such payment or credit and in the order in which they have arisen, be treated as Factor Risk Accounts Receivable, unless prior to such payment or credit Factor shall have withdrawn the credit line approval.. Factor's withholding or withdrawing of a Customer order approval or credit line approval shall at all times be in Factor's sole discretion, and Factor's actions with regard thereto shall not render Factor liable to Company in any respect for damages or otherwise. Subject to Company's warranties and representations herein contained, Factor will assume the credit loss on each Factor Risk Account Receivable specifically assigned to Factor hereunder within twenty-one (21) days from the earlier of its invoice date or shipping date if the Customer, after receiving and accepting delivery of goods or services, fails to pay in full such Factor Risk Account Receivable on its longest maturity solely because of its financial inability to pay. ,If, however, such failure to pay is due in whole or in part to any other cause, Factor shall not be responsible and shall have full recourse to Company. Factor at its option may purchase Accounts Receivable not approved as to credit risk or teens of sale (each such Account Receivable not approved by Factor being herein called a "Company Risk Account Receivable"), but each purchase of a Company Risk Account Receivable shall be with full recourse to Company and Company agrees to pay Factor on demand for each Company Risk Account Receivable.

The Purchase Price shall be remitted to the Company upon acceptance by Factor of the assignment of the Accounts Receivables provided at that time Factor has received a Letter of Acceptance substantially in the form of Exhibit C annexed hereto or such other evidence acceptable to Factor, in its sole discretion, that the Customer has received and accepted the merchandise and that the Customer will assert no defenses, claims or offsets in excess of ten (10%) percent of the invoice amount. After purchase of an Account Receivable by Factor, a discount, credit, unidentifiable payment or allowance may be claimed solely by the Customer, and if not so claimed, such discount, credit, payment or allowance shall be the property of Factor.
5.              Company Reserve Account.

Factor shall furnish Company with advices of all credits and debits to the Reserve Account. Factor will' render to Company on a monthly basis a statement of its Reserve Account. Each statement of account will be considered correct and binding on Company, absent manifest error, unless Company objects in writing, by certified mail, return receipt requested, to capstone within thirty (30) days of the date of such statement of account, setting forth each and every specific exception by Company to such statement. Each statement of account shall be deemed delivered when e-mailed or when mailed through the United States postal service, three days after the date of such statement. Each statement shall be dated within 10 days of the 1st day of each month, and Company will be deemed to have received such statement unless it claims non-receipt in writing by certified mail, return receipt requested, by the twenty-fifth day of such month.
6.              Warranties and Representations. Company warrants and represents that each Account Receivable sold and assigned to Factor hereunder: (a) shall be genuine and valid and shall represent a completed delivery or performance in fulfillment in every respect of the terms, conditions and specifications of a bona fide, uncancelled and unexpired sale or service in the ordinary course of business to a Customer which is not affiliated with Company in full compliance with the specifications of such Customer; (b) Company shall be at the time of delivery or performance the absolute owner of all merchandise and other property involved; (c) Company has not granted and, without Factor's prior written consent, Company will not hereafter grant to any other Person until all security interests granted hereunder have been terminated, a security interest in, or grant to any other Person any right to purchase, the Factored Accounts; (d) is enforceable for the full amount thereof and will be subject to no dispute or claim by the Customer in whole or in part as to price, terms, quality, quantity, delay in shipment, offsets, counterclaims, contra accounts or any other defense of any other kind and character, real or claimed; (e) will be subject to no discounts, deductions, allowances, offsets, counterclaims or other contra items or to no special terms of payment which are not shown on the face of the invoice thereof; (f) will not represent a delivery of merchandise upon "consignment," "guaranteed sale," "sale or return," "payment on reorder" or similar terms; (g) is payable in United States Dollars and has been invoiced to the Customer by an invoice that bears notice of the sale and assignment to Factor in compliance with the terms of this Agreement; and (h) will not represent a "pack, bill and hold" transaction unless Company furnishes Factor with a copy of the Customer's purchase order and has obtained Customer's agreement to grant Factor a security interest in the merchandise and to pay for the merchandise at the maturity date of the invoice irrespective of whether or not Company has received instructions to deliver the same; (i) Company agrees to notify Factor promptly of any change in the name, corporate structure, or business addresses or location of the Company; (j) All applicable state and federal laws have been complied with in conjunction with all of the Factoring Agreement, as well as all of the transactions arising pursuant to the Factoring Agreement.

7.             Collateral, No Lien Termination Without Release, Liquidation Success Premium.
7.1           As security for all of the Obligations, Company grants Factor a continuing lien in, and security interest in the collateral described in Exhibit A (being herein referred to as the "Collateral"). Recourse to the Collateral or any other security shall not at any time be required and Company shall at all times remain liable for the repayment upon demand of all Obligations at any time owing by Company to Factor. During the term of this Agreement, Company shall not sell or assign, negotiate, pledge or grant any security interest in any of the Collateral to anyone other than Factor or Lender, without Factor's prior written consent.
7.2            In recognition of Factor's right to have all its attorneys' fees and other expenses incurred in connection with this Agreement secured by the Accounts Receivables and other collateral, notwithstanding payment in full of any deficiency by Company, Factor shall not be required to record any termination or satisfactions of any liens on the Accounts Receivables and Collateral unless the Company has executed and delivered to Factor general releases in a form reasonably acceptable to Factor. The Company understands that this provision constitutes a waiver of rights under Section 9-513(c) of the UCC.
7.3           If Company substantially ceases operating as a going concern, and the proceeds of the Collateral created after an Event of Default are in excess of the balance due at the time of default, Company shall pay to Factor a liquidation success premium of ten (10%) percent of the amount of such excess.

All invoices for merchandise sold or services rendered to a Customer shall be prepared by the Company and shall bear a notice that they have been assigned to, are owned by and are payable directly and only to Factor's Refactor in substantially the faun shown on the notice of assignment attached hereto as Exhibit B attached hereto. Upon Factor's request, Company shall furnish Factor with copies of all invoices, accompanied by duly executed assignment schedules, original shipping or delivery receipts, and such other information or Documents as Factor in its discretion may request from time to time. Company represents and warrants to Factor that it has given or will promptly give, or has caused or will promptly cause to be given, written notification to all Customers of Factor's purchase and ownership thereof. In the event that such notification for any reason is not timely provided to a Customer, Factor at its option shall have the right (but no obligation) to provide such notification to such Customer, with the same effect as if such notice had been given directly by Company. If Company fails for any reason to provide Factor, within two (2) days after a request by Factor, with copies of such invoices (or the equivalent) or such proof of shipment or delivery when requested by Factor for any Factor Risk Account Receivable or fails to provide the Letter of Acceptance or other evidence concerning acceptance of merchandise by the Customer as provided in Section 3, such Factor Risk Account Receivable shall automatically become a Company Risk Account Receivable. Factor shall have no liability with respect such Company Risk Account Receivable and Company shall immediately reimburse Factor for the amount of any remittances made by Factor to Company thereon. Each invoice shall bear the terms of sale and no change from the original terms of sale shall be made without Factor's prior written consent. Factor reserves the right to mail original invoices to the Customers at Company's expense; however, mailing, sending or delivery by Factor of a bill or invoice shall not be deemed to be any representation by Factor with respect thereto.
9.              Payment of Accounts Receivable. All payments of Accounts Receivable and other payments on behalf of Company received by Factor shall be credited to Company's Reserve Account. No check, draft or other instrument received by Factor shall constitute final payment unless and until such check, draft or other instrument shall have been actually collected by Factor in immediately available funds. The amount of the Purchase Price of any Factor Risk Account Receivable which remains unpaid will be deemed collected and will be credited to Company's account as of the earlier of the following dates: (a) the date of the Account Receivables longest maturity if any proceeding or petition is instituted or filed by or against the Customer for relief under any federal or state bankruptcy or insolvency law, code or act, or if a receiver or trustee is appointed for the Customer; or (b) as of the last day of the fourth (4th) month following its longest maturity date if such Factor Risk Account Receivable remains unpaid as of such date without the happening of any of the events specified in the preceding clause (a). If any Factor Risk Account Receivable credited to Company's Reserve Account is not paid for any reason other than the Customer's financial inability to pay, Factor shall reverse the credit and charge Company's Reserve Account accordingly and such Account Receivable shall then be deemed a Company Risk Account Receivable.

10.            Remittances. Without limiting the obligations of Company under Section 9 hereof, all remittances received by Company with respect to all of its Accounts Receivable purchased by Factor shall be held in trust for Factor, and Company shall immediately deliver to Factor the identical checks, drafts, monies or other forms of payment received, and Factor shall have the right to endorse Company's name on any check, draft or other form of remittance received, where such endorsement is required to effect collection. Company hereby appoints Factor or such Person as Factor may name as its attorney-in-fact to execute all necessary documents in Company's name and do all things necessary to carry out this Agreement. Company ratifies and approves all acts of the attorney and agrees that neither Factor nor the attorney shall be liable for any acts of commission or omission nor for any error of judgment or mistake of fact or law. This power being coupled with an interest is irrevocable as long as Company is indebted to Factor in any manner.
11.            Customer Disputes and Claims. Company agrees to notify Factor immediately of all returns and allowances and of all disputes with and claims made by Customers and to adjust all such claims and disputes at its own expense, issuing credit memoranda promptly, but subject to Factor's approval. It is Factor's practice to allow a reasonable time for the settlement of disputes between Company and Company's Customers without waiving Factor's right at any time to adjust any claims and disputes on a Factor Risk Account Receivable directly with the Customer and to charge back to the Reserve Account at any time the full amount of the Account Receivable involved. Factor may at any time charge the Reserve Account the full amount of: (a) any Customer deduction of not more than one hundred dollars; (b) any Factor Risk Account which is not paid in full when due for any reason (real or imaginary) other than the Customer's financial inability to pay; (c) any Account for which there is a breach of any of Company's warranties or representations set forth herein; (d) any anticipation deducted by such Customer on any Account; and (e) any Company Risk Account Receivable which is not paid in full when due. Any such charge back shall not be deemed to constitute a reassignment of the Account Receivable, and Factor shall retain a security interest therein as security for all Obligations owing to Factor.
12.            Collection of Accounts; Returned Goods. As owner of the Accounts Receivable, Factor shall have the right to (a) bring suit, or otherwise enforce collection, of the Account Receivable in the name of Company or Factor, (b) modify the terms of payment, settle, compromise or release, in whole or in part, any amounts owing, on terms Factor may deem advisable, and (c) issue credits in the name of Company or Factor. Should any goods be returned or rejected by Company's Customers or otherwise recovered by Company, Company shall segregate and hold such goods in trust for Factor, but at Company's sole risk and expense. Company shall also promptly notify Factor and, at Factor's request, will deliver such goods to Factor, pay Factor the invoice price thereof, or sell such goods at Company's expense for the purpose of paying Company's Obligations to Factor. Once Company has granted or issued a discount, credit or allowance to a Customer on any Account Receivable, Company shall have no further interest therein. Any remittances received by Company on account of any of the Accounts Receivable shall be held by Company as trustee of an express trust for Factor's benefit, separate from its own property, and Company shall immediately deliver the same in kind properly endorsed to Factor. Factor may endorse Company's name on any check, instrument, draft or other document in payment of an Account Receivable. Any payments made to either Company or Factor from, or credits issued to, a Customer shall be applied first to the Factor Risk Accounts Receivable owing by such Customer, irrespective of instructions of the Customer or the invoice dates of such Factor Risk Accounts Receivable or the mariner in which payment is made, and Factor shall have recourse to Company to the extent any such payment is made directly to Company.

13.            Commissions. Company agrees to pay Factor a commission of two percent (2%), in the form of a discount on the face amount of each Factor Risk Accounts Receivable or Company Risk Accounts Receivable for the first thirty (30) days or part thereof that such Account Receivable is outstanding. In no event, however, shall the commission payable for each invoice be less than $7.00. All commissions due hereunder shall be payable by debit to the Reserve Account. After the first thirty (30) days that any portion of a Factor Risk Accounts Receivable or Company Risk Accounts Receivable has not been Closed and until such Account Receivable is Closed, the commission due to Factor shall be one percent (1%) for each additional fourteen (14) day period, or portion thereof that such Account Receivable is outstanding, and shall be earned on the first day of such period.

The difference between the Minimum Commissions and the amount of commissions actually received shall be chargeable to the Reserve Account as of the end of each such year (or, if this Agreement is terminated for any reason before the Anniversary Date, as of the date of such termination).
14.            Refactoring. The Company acknowledges and agrees that the Factor may, from time to time, reassign and resell any Account Receivables and the Collateral to (i) CIT Commercial Services, Inc. or any of its successors in interest; (ii) any other factor; or (iii) such other business entity as Factor in its sole discretion may determine (any such entity collectively and severally referred to herein as the "Refactor"). Pursuant to the terms and conditions of agreements entered into with such Refactor from time to time (the "Refactoring Agreements"), the Company hereby consents to any such resale, reassignment and hypothecation. Company agrees that all agreements, representations, warranties and covenants made by it hereunder shall be deemed to be made both to the Factor and the Refactor, jointly and severally as the context may require and that the term "Factor" as used throughout this Agreement shall in all instances be interpreted to mean "either the Factor or the Refactor or both of them." The Company agrees that (i) this Agreement is and shall at all times be subject to the terms, provisions and covenants of the Refactoring Agreements which may now or hereafter affect this Agreement and to any renewals, modifications, replacements or extensions thereof; and (ii) the Refactor may exercise all of the Factor's rights and remedies hereunder whether or not such rights or remedies have been specifically granted herein to the Refactor. The Company covenants and agrees that the Refactor, its employees and its agents shall not be liable to it for any act, omission, breach or violation on its part or on the Factor's part with respect to performance or non-performance of any of the terms and provisions of the Refactoring Agreements, and with respect to performance or non-performance of any of the terms and provisions of this Agreement, or any other agreement between the parties hereto and any indebtedness owing by the Factor to the Company of any kind or nature whatsoever, if any, and that the Company shall look solely to the Factor for enforcement of its rights under this Agreement and the Reassignment Agreements.

On the request of either party, the other party shall immediately confirm the receipt of any documents transmitted by Electronic Transmission. The sender of any documents transmitted by Electronic Transmission shall maintain backup paper documents for such documents until at least the third anniversary of the date of the termination of this Agreement and shall, on request of the receiving party, furnish such backup paper documents within two business days of the receipt of a request therefor. Each party may rely upon documents authorized by Factor to be sent by Electronic Transmission to the same extent as if original documents had been personally delivered.
