PAYMENT. Borrower will pay this loan in full immediately upon Lender’s demand, If no demand is made, Borrower will pay this loan In accordance with the following payment schedule, which calculates Interest on the unpaid principal balances as described In the “INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD” paragraph using the Interest rates described in this paragraph: 9 monthly consecutive Interest payments, beginning May 7, 2011, with Interest calculated on the unpaid principal balances using an Interest rate of 5.000% per annum based on a year of 360 days; 74 monthly consecutive principal and interest payments of $32,069.34 each, beginning February 7, 2012, with Interest calculated on the unpaid principal balances using an Interest rate of 5.000% per annum based on a year of 360 days; and one principal and Interest payment of $3,835,852.95 on April 7, 2018, with Interest calculated on the unpaid principal balances using an Interest rate of 5.000% per annum based on a year of 360 days. This estimated final payment is based on the assumption that all payments will be made exactly as scheduled; the actual final payment will be for all principal and accrued Interest not yet paid, together with any other unpaid amounts under this Note. Unless otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid Interest; then to principal; then to any late charges; and then to any unpaid collection costs. Borrower will pay Lender at Lender’s address shown above or at such other place as Lender may designate in writing. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Note, Lender will not charge Interest on any undisbursed loan proceeds. No scheduled payment, whether of principal or Interest or both, will be due unless sufficient loan funds have been disbursed by the scheduled payment dale to justify the payment.


MAXIMUM INTEREST RATE. Under no circumstances will the interest rale on this Note exceed (except lfor any higher default rale shown below) the lesser of 18.000% per annum or the maximum rate allowed by applicable law.


INTEREST CALCULATION METHOD. Interest on this Note Is computed on a 365/360 basis; that Is, by applying the ratio of the Interest rate over a year of 360 days, multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days the principal balance Is outstanding unless such calculation would result In a usurious rate, In which case interest shall be calculated on a per diem basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be. All Interest payable under this Note Is computed using this method. This calculation method results in a higher effective Interest rate than the numeric Interest rates stated in this Note.


PREPAYMENT. Borrower agrees that all loan fees and other prepaid finance charges are earned fully as of the dale of the loan and will not be subject 10 refund upon early payment (whether voluntary or as a result of default), except as otherwise required by lav1.

Early payments \Viii not, unless agreed to by Lender In writing, relieve Borrower of Borrower’s obligation lo continue to make payments under the payment schedule. Rather, early payments will reduce the principal balance due and may result in Borrower’s making fewer payments. Borrower agrees not to send Lender payments marked “paid in full”, ‘Without recourse”, or similar language. If Borrower sends such a payment, Lender may accept it \Without losing any of Lender’s rights under this Note, and Borrower will remain obligated to pay any further amount owed to Lender.
