Any amounts so deposited to correct a deficiency described in Section 2.05(a)(i) above (a “Non-Interest Balancing Deposit”) shall be disbursed for the payment of Project Costs (other than interest on the Loans) causing such deficiency before any additional Advances are made for such Project Costs.

2.06 Advances to Pay Interest. The portion of the Commitment allocated in the Budget for interest on the Loans shall be held by Lender as an unfunded interest reserve, and Borrower hereby authorizes the Lender to make Advances thereof to pay interest when due on the Loans. Such authorization is irrevocable and no further direction or authorization shall be required for Lender to make such Advances. Lender may make such Advances notwithstanding that a Default or Unmatured Default may have occurred under the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document. If funds are not available from the interest reserve to pay interest when due on the Loans, Borrower shall pay such interest from its own funds.

(e) Computation of Interest. All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, and shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).

3.09 Alternate Rate of Interest. If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Eurodollar Advance, (a) Lender determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBO Rate, for such Interest Period, or (b) Lender determines that the Adjusted LIBO Rate for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to Lender of making or maintaining the Loans included in such Advance for such Interest Period, then Lender shall give notice thereof to Borrower by electronic communication as provided in Section 10.01 as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until Lender notifies Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any Advance to, or continuation of any Advance as, a Eurodollar Advance shall be ineffective, and (ii) if any Borrowing Request requests a Eurodollar Advance, such Advance shall be made as a Floating Rate Advance.

3.10 Increased Costs.

(a) Increased Costs of Making or Maintaining Loans. If any Change in Law shall (i) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement (including any compulsory loan requirement, insurance charge or other assessment) against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBO Rate), (ii) impose on Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Loans made by Lender or (iii) subject Lender to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto, and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to Lender of making or maintaining any Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan) or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by Lender hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then Borrower will pay to Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.

(b) Capital Adequacy. If Lender determines that any Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on Lender’s capital or on the capital of Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by Lender to a level below that which Lender or Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law

 

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 23


(taking into consideration Lender’s policies and the policies of Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then, from time to time, Borrower will pay to Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate Lender or Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.

(c) Certificate of Amounts Due. A certificate of Lender setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section shall be delivered to Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Borrower shall pay Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) Business Days after receipt thereof.

(d) Delay in Demand For Compensation. Failure or delay on the part of Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that Borrower shall not be required to compensate Lender pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 270 days prior to the date that Lender notifies Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided further that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 270-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.

3.11 Break Funding Payments. In the event of (a) the payment of any principal of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of a Default), (b) the conversion of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (c) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Eurodollar Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto, or (d) the assignment of any Eurodollar Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by Borrower pursuant to Section 3.14 hereof, then, in any such event, Borrower shall pay to Lender an administrative fee of $250.00 and compensate Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event. Such loss, cost or expense to Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by Lender to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the principal amount of such Eurodollar Loan had such event not occurred, at the Adjusted LIBO Rate that would have been applicable to such Eurodollar Loan, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Eurodollar Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest which would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate which Lender would bid were it to bid, at the commencement of such period, for dollar deposits of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the eurodollar market. A certificate of Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Borrower shall pay Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) days after receipt thereof.

3.12 Taxes.

(a) Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of Borrower under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by applicable law. If any applicable law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable withholding agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a withholding agent, then the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by Borrower shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 3.12), Lender receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.

(b) Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. Borrower shall pay prior to delinquency to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of Lender timely reimburse it for, Other Taxes.

(c) Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by Borrower to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 3.12, Borrower shall deliver to Lender the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to Lender.

 

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 24


(d) Indemnification by the Borrower. Borrower shall indemnify Lender, within 10 days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) payable or paid by Lender or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to Lender and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to Borrower by Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(e) Status of Lenders.

(i) If at any time Lender is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document, Lender shall deliver to Borrower, at the time or times reasonably requested by Borrower, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by Borrower as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, if reasonably requested by Borrower, Lender shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by Borrower as will enable Borrower to determine whether or not Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 3.12(e)(ii)(A) and (ii)(B) below) shall not be required if in Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of Lender.

(ii) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that Borrower is a U.S. Person,

(A) Lender shall deliver to Borrower, from time to time upon the reasonable request of Borrower, executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that Lender is exempt from U.S. Federal backup withholding tax; and

(B) if a payment made to Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. Federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), Lender shall deliver to Borrower at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by Borrower such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by Borrower as may be necessary for Borrower to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that Lender has complied with Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify Borrower in writing of its legal inability to do so.

(f) Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 3.12 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 3.12), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 3.12 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental

 

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 25


Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (f) (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (f), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (f) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This paragraph shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

(g) Survival; Defined Terms. Each party’s obligations under this Section 3.12 shall survive the termination of the Commitment and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document. For purposes of this Section 3.12, the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.

3.13 Payments Generally; Late Fee.

(a) Payments Generally. Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest or fees, or of amounts payable under Section 3.10, 3.11 or 3.12, or otherwise) prior to 11:00 a.m., Phoenix, Arizona time, on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without set-off or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of Lender be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to Lender at its offices at 201 North Central Avenue, Floor 14, Phoenix, Arizona 85004-0073 except that payments pursuant to Sections 3.10, 3.11, 3.12 and 10.03 hereof shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. Lender shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension. All payments hereunder shall be made in U.S. dollars.

(b) Application of Insufficient Funds. If at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to Lender to pay fully all amounts of principal, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of fees, indemnities and expense reimbursements then due hereunder, (ii) second, towards payment of interest then due hereunder, (iii) third, towards payment of principal then due hereunder, and (iv) fourth, towards payment of Swap Obligations then due; and (iv) fifth, towards payment of Banking Services then due. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lender shall have the right to apply repayments and proceeds of collateral to the Obligations in any order, in its sole discretion.

(c) Late Fee. If any payment is not received by Lender within 10 days after its due date (whether as stated, by acceleration, or otherwise), Lender may assess and Borrower agrees to pay a late fee equal to the lesser of five percent (5%) of the past due amount or $1,500.00. Borrower shall pay the late fee upon demand by Lender. Such late fee is in addition to any other rights and remedies of Lender hereunder.

3.14 Mitigation of Increased Costs. If Lender requests compensation under Section 3.10 hereof, or if Borrower is required to pay any Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of Lender pursuant to Section 3.12 hereof, then Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the judgment of Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 3.10 or 3.12 hereof, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to Lender. Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.

ARTICLE VI

REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

6.01 Representations and Warranties. As a material inducement to Lender to enter into this Agreement, and as an express condition to each Advance made hereunder, Borrower hereby represents and warrants, as follows:

(a) Existence; Power and Authority. Borrower is a limited liability company duly formed and validly existing in the State of Delaware and in good standing under the laws of the States of Delaware and Texas, with requisite power and authority to (i) incur the Obligations, and (ii) execute, deliver and perform this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to which it is a party.

(b) Authorization; No Conflict. Borrower’s execution and delivery to Lender of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the full and complete performance of the provisions thereof (i) are authorized by Borrower’s operating agreement; (ii) have been duly authorized by all requisite member actions; (iii) do not require the approval or consent of any Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over Borrower or any of the Mortgaged Property; and (iv) will not result in any breach of, or constitute a default under, or result in the creation of any Lien, (other than those contained in any of the Loan Documents) upon any property or assets of Borrower under any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, bank loan or credit agreement or other instrument or agreement to which Borrower is a party or by which Borrower or any of the Mortgaged Property is bound.

(c) Title. Borrower is the sole legal and beneficial owner of the Mortgaged Property free and clear of all Liens other than the Permitted Encumbrances.

(d) Financial Statements. Any and all balance sheets, statements of income or loss, and financial statements heretofore furnished to Lender with respect to Borrower and Guarantor are true and correct in all material respects as of the dates thereof, and fully and accurately present the financial condition of the subjects thereof as of the dates thereof, and no material adverse change has occurred in the financial condition reflected therein since the dates of the most recent thereof. Neither Borrower nor Guarantor has any contingent liabilities, liabilities for taxes, unusual forward or long-term commitments or unrealized or anticipated losses from any unfavorable commitments which are reasonably likely to result in a material adverse effect on the Mortgaged Property or the development, construction or operation of the Improvements as contemplated by the Loan Documents or on the financial condition of Borrower or Guarantor or their respective abilities to perform their obligations under the Loan Documents and the Project Documents.

 

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 39


(e) Litigation. There are no actions, suits or other legal proceedings pending, or to the current actual knowledge of Borrower, threatened, against or affecting Borrower, the Mortgaged Property, or the Guarantor which (i) if adversely determined would materially and adversely affect the ability of Borrower or Guarantor to perform its respective obligations under the Loan Documents or Project Documents or would have a material adverse effect on the use or value of the Mortgaged Property, or (ii) challenge the validity or enforceability of the Loan Documents or the priority of the Lien and security interest created thereby.

(f) Legal Compliance. The Plans and Specifications have been approved by all applicable Governmental Authorities, and upon completion in accordance with the Plans and Specifications, the Improvements and the use and occupancy thereof will comply in all material respects with all applicable Legal Requirements except to the extent Borrower is contesting any Legal Requirements in accordance with Section 4.12. Neither the zoning nor any other right to construct, use or operate the Improvements is to any extent dependent upon or related to any real estate other than the Property. All approvals, licenses and permits required from Governmental Authorities under applicable Legal Requirements in connection with the current phase of construction of the Improvements have been obtained and Borrower has no knowledge of any information suggesting that approvals, licenses and permits for future phases of construction will not be received in a timely manner.

(g) Services and Utilities. All streets, easements, utilities and related services necessary for the construction of the Improvements and the operation thereof for their intended purpose are, or when required, will be, available to the Property.

(h) Enforceability. Each Loan Document executed by Borrower constitutes a legal and binding obligation of, and is valid and enforceable against, Borrower in accordance with the terms thereof (subject to Debtor Relief Laws and general equitable principles) and is not subject to any right of rescission, set-off, counterclaim or defense.

(i) ERISA. Borrower is not an “employee benefit plan” as defined in Section 3(3) of ERISA or a “plan” as defined in Section 4975(e)(1) of the Code. Each Employee Benefit Plan is in material compliance with all applicable requirements under ERISA and the Code, and, to the extent that such Employee Benefit Plan is also intended to be “qualified” within the meaning of Section 401(a) of the Code, it is in material compliance with the applicable requirements under the Code, except to the extent that any defects can be remedied without material liability to Borrower under Revenue Procedure 2008-50 or any similar procedure. None of the Employee Benefit Plans is subject to the requirements of Section 412 of the Code, Part 3 of Title I of ERISA or Title IV of ERISA or is a “multiemployer plan” as defined in Section 3(37) of ERISA. Borrower has no material liability under Title IV of ERISA or Section 412 of the Code with respect to any Employee Benefit Plan.

(j) Legal Parcel; Separate Tax Parcel. The Mortgaged Property is taxed separately and does not include any other property, and for all purposes the Property may be mortgaged, conveyed and otherwise dealt with as a separate legal parcel.

(k) Leases and Rents. Borrower has good and marketable title to the Leases and rents free and clear of all claims, and Liens other than the Permitted Encumbrances. To the knowledge of Borrower, the Leases are valid and unmodified and are in full force and effect and Borrower is not in default of any of the material terms or provisions of the Leases that would materially affect Borrower’s performance under the Loan Documents. The rents now due or to become due for any periods subsequent to the date hereof have not been collected and payment thereof has not been anticipated for a period of more than one month in advance of its due date, waived or released, discounted, set off or otherwise discharged or compromised. Borrower has not received any funds or deposits from any Lessee for which credit has not already been made on account of accrued rents other than security deposits required by the Leases.

(l) Budget. To the best of Borrower’s knowledge, the Budget accurately reflects all costs to complete the Improvements and operate the Project through the Initial Maturity Date of the Loan.

 

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 40


(m) Construction Schedule. To the best of Borrower’s knowledge, the Construction Schedule is complete and accurate.

(n) USA Patriot Act.

(i) Neither Borrower nor, to the knowledge of Borrower, any of its respective Affiliates over which Borrower exercises management control (each, a “Controlled Affiliate”) is a Prohibited Person, and Borrower and, to the knowledge of Borrower, such Controlled Affiliates are in compliance with all applicable orders, rules and regulations of OFAC.

(ii) Neither Borrower nor, to the knowledge of Borrower, any of its respective Affiliates: (w) is targeted by United States or multilateral economic or trade sanctions currently in force; (x) is owned or controlled by, or acts on behalf of, any Person that is targeted by United States or multilateral economic or trade sanctions currently in force; (y) is a Prohibited Person; or (z) is named, identified or described on any list of Persons with whom United States Persons may not conduct business, including any such blocked persons list, designated nationals list, denied persons list, entity list, debarred party list, unverified list, sanctions list or other such lists published or maintained by the United States, including OFAC, the United States Department of Commerce or the United States Department of State.

(o) Embargoed Person. (1) None of Borrower’s assets constitute property of, or are beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, by any Person targeted by economic or trade sanctions under US law, including but not limited to, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. §§ 1701 et seq., The Trading with the Enemy Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 1 et seq. (the “Trading With the Enemy Act”), any of the foreign assets control regulations of the Treasury (31 C.F.R., Subtitle B, Chapter V, as amended) (the “Foreign Assets Control Regulations”) or any enabling legislation or regulations promulgated thereunder or executive order relating thereto (which includes, without limitation, (i) Executive Order No. 13224, effective as of September 24, 2001, and relating to Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transaction With Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism (66 Fed. Reg. 49079 (2001)) (the “Executive Order”) and (ii) the USA PATRIOT Act, if the result of such ownership would be that any Loan made by Lender would be in violation of law (“Embargoed Person”); (b) no Embargoed Person has any interest of any nature whatsoever in Borrower if the result of such interest would be that any Loan would be in violation of law; (c) Borrower has not engaged in business with Embargoed Persons if the result of such business would be that any Loan made by Lender would be in violation of law; and (d) neither Borrower nor any Controlled Affiliate (i) is or will become a “blocked person” as described in the Executive Order, the Trading With the Enemy Act or the Foreign Assets Control Regulations or (ii) engages or will engage in any dealings or transactions, or be otherwise associated, with any such “blocked person”. For purposes of determining whether or not a representation is true or a covenant is being complied with under this Section 6.01(o), Borrower shall not be required to make any investigation into (i) the ownership of publicly traded stock or other publicly traded securities or (ii) the beneficial ownership of any collective investment fund.

6.02 Nature of Representations and Warranties. All representations and warranties made by Borrower in this Agreement or any other Loan Document or in any certificate or other document delivered to Lender pursuant to or in connection with this Agreement shall be deemed to have been relied upon by Lender notwithstanding any investigation heretofore or hereafter made by Lender or on its behalf.

The policy shall be in an amount not less than the full insurable value on a replacement cost basis of the insured Property and Improvements and personal property related thereto (without deduction for depreciation). If the policy is a blanket policy covering the Property and Improvements and one or more other properties, the policy must specify the dollar amount of the total blanket limit of the policy that is allocated to each property, and the amount so allocated to the Property and Improvements must not be less than the full insurable value on a replacement cost basis. During any construction period, such policy shall be written in the so-called “Builder’s Risk Completed Value Non-Reporting Form” with no coinsurance requirement and shall contain a provision granting the insured permission to occupy prior to completion. This policy must also list the Lender as mortgagee and loss payee.

(v) Workers’ Compensation and Employer’s Liability Insurance in accordance with the applicable laws of the state in which the work is to be performed or of the state in which Borrower is obligated to pay compensation to employees engaged in the performance of the work. The policy limit under the Employer’s Liability Insurance section shall not be less than $1,000,000.00 for any one accident.

(vi) If the Property, or any part thereof, lies within a “special flood hazard area” as designated on maps prepared by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a National Flood Insurance Program Standard Flood Insurance Policy (“SFIP”) and/or insurance from a private insurance carrier (which may substitute for or supplement, the SFIP) in form and substance acceptable to Lender covering the Improvements and contents, if applicable, for the duration of the Loan in the amount of the full insurable value of the Improvements and contents, if applicable, or the amount of the Loan, whichever is less.

(vii) Rent loss or business interruption insurance against loss of income (including, but not limited to, rent, cost reimbursements and all other amounts payable by tenants under Leases or otherwise derived by Borrower from the operation of the Project) arising out of damage to or destruction of the Property and Improvements by fire or other peril (including earthquake if required) insured against under each policy. The amount of the policy shall be in the amount equal to one year’s projected rentals or gross revenue.

 

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 42


(viii) Such other insurance coverages in such amounts as Lender may require, which may include, without limitation, errors and omissions insurance with respect to the contractors, architects and engineers.

(b) Policy Requirements; Insurance Consultant. All insurance policies shall (i) be issued by an insurance company licensed to do business in the state where the Project is located having a rating of “A-” VIII or better by A.M. Best Co., in Best’s Rating Guide, (ii) name “JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and any and all subsidiaries and their successors and/or assigns as their interests may appear” as additional insureds on all liability insurance and as mortgagee and loss payee on all All-Risk Property, flood insurance, earthquake insurance and rent loss or business interruption insurance (whether or not required hereunder), (iii) be endorsed to show that Borrower’s insurance shall be primary and all insurance carried by Lender is strictly excess and secondary and shall not contribute with Borrower’s insurance, (iv) provide that Lender is to receive thirty (30) days written notice prior to non-renewal or cancellation, (v) be evidenced by a certificate of insurance to be provided to Lender along with a copy of the policy for All-Risk Property coverage or such other evidence of insurance acceptable to Lender in its reasonable discretion, (vi) include either policy or binder numbers on the ACORD form, and (vii) be in form and amounts acceptable to Lender; provided, however, that with respect to any flood insurance required hereunder, acceptable proof of coverage shall not include certificates of insurance. Lender, at its option and upon notice to Borrower, may retain, at Borrower’s expense, an insurance consultant to review the insurance for the Property and Improvements to confirm that it complies with the terms and conditions set forth herein.

(c) Evidence of Insurance; Payment of Premiums. Borrower shall deliver to Lender, at least five (5) days before the expiration of an existing policy, evidence acceptable to Lender of the continuation of the coverage of the expiring policy. If Lender has not received satisfactory evidence of such continuation of coverage in the time frame herein specified, Lender shall have the right, but not the obligation, to purchase such insurance for Lender’s interest only. Any amounts so disbursed by Lender pursuant to this Section shall be repaid by Borrower within 10 days after written demand therefor. Nothing contained in this Section shall require Lender to incur any expense or take any action hereunder, and inaction by Lender shall never be considered a waiver of any right accruing to Lender on account on this Section. The payment by Lender of any insurance premium for insurance which Borrower is obligated to provide hereunder but which Lender believes has not been paid, shall be conclusive between the parties as to the legality and amounts so paid. Borrower agrees to pay all premiums on such insurance as they become due, and will not permit any condition to exist on or with respect to the Mortgaged Property which would wholly or partially invalidate any insurance thereon.

(d) Collateral Protection. Unless Borrower provides Lender with evidence satisfactory to Lender of the insurance coverage required by this Agreement, Lender may purchase insurance at Borrower’s expense to protect Lender’s interest in the Mortgaged Property. This insurance may, but need not, protect Borrower’s interest in the Mortgaged Property. The coverages that Lender purchases may not pay any claim that Borrower makes or any claim that is made against Borrower in connection with the Mortgaged Property. Borrower or Lender (as appropriate) may later cancel any insurance purchased by Lender, but only after Lender receives satisfactory evidence that Borrower has obtained insurance as required by this Agreement. If Lender purchases insurance for the Mortgaged Property, Borrower will be responsible for the costs of that insurance, including any charges imposed by Lender in connection with the placement of insurance, until the effective date of the cancellation or expiration of such insurance. The costs of the insurance may, at Lender’s discretion, be added to Borrower’s total principal obligation owing to Lender, and in any event shall be secured by the liens on the Mortgaged Property created by the Loan Documents. It is understood and agreed that the costs of insurance obtained by Lender may be more than the costs of insurance Borrower may be able to obtain on its own.

(e) No Liability; Assignment. Lender shall not by the fact of approving, disapproving, accepting, preventing, obtaining or failing to obtain any such insurance, incur any liability for the form or legal sufficiency of insurance contracts, solvency of insurers, or payment of losses, and Borrower hereby expressly assumes full responsibility therefor and all liability, if any, thereunder. Borrower hereby absolutely assigns and transfers to Lender all of Borrower’s right, title and interest in and to any unearned premiums paid on policies and any claims thereunder and Lender shall have the right, but not the obligation, to assign any then existing claims under the same to any purchaser of the Mortgaged Property at any foreclosure sale; provided, however, that so long as no Default exists and is continuing hereunder, Borrower shall have the right under a license granted hereby, and Lender hereby grants to Borrower a license, to exercise rights under said policies and in and to said premiums

 

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 43


subject to the provisions of this Agreement. Said license shall be revoked automatically upon the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default hereunder. In the event of a foreclosure of the Deed of Trust, or other transfer of title to the Mortgaged Property in extinguishment in whole or in part of the Loans, all right, title and interest of Borrower in and to the insurance policies then in force and all proceeds payable thereunder shall thereupon vest in the purchaser at such foreclosure or Lender or other transferee in the event of such other transfer of title.

(f) No Separate Insurance. Borrower shall not carry any separate insurance on the Mortgaged Property concurrent in kind or form with any insurance required hereunder or contributing in the event of loss without Lender’s prior written consent, and any such policy shall have attached a standard non-contributing mortgagee clause, with loss payable to Lender, and shall otherwise meet all other requirements set forth herein.

(g) Casualty Loss.

(i) If all or any part of the Mortgaged Property shall be damaged or destroyed by fire or other casualty, Borrower shall give immediate written notice and make a claim to the insurance carrier and Lender. With respect to any such casualty loss for which Borrower has an insurance claim that exceeds One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00), Borrower hereby authorizes and empowers Lender, at Lender’s option and in Lender’s sole discretion as attorney-in-fact for Borrower, to make proof of loss, to adjust and compromise any claim under insurance policies, to appear in and prosecute any action arising from such insurance policies, to collect and receive insurance proceeds, and to deduct therefrom Lender’s expenses incurred in the collection of such proceeds; provided, however, that the foregoing authorization and empowerment of Lender to act as attorney-in-fact for Borrower shall not become effective until the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default or until such time as Borrower fails to diligently pursue the collection of such insurance proceeds in Lender’s opinion. The foregoing appointment is irrevocable, coupled with an interest, and continuing so long as the Commitment or Obligations remain outstanding, and such rights, powers and privileges shall be exclusive in Lender, its successors and assigns.

(ii) As sole loss payee on all policies of casualty insurance, Lender shall receive all insurance proceeds from any casualty loss up to the outstanding balance of the Indebtedness plus all unfunded amounts of the Commitment which Lender is still obligated to fund hereunder, and shall hold the same in an interest-bearing account pending disposition in accordance with this Section. Borrower authorizes Lender to deduct from such insurance proceeds received by Lender all of Lender’s costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in connection with the collection thereof (the remainder of such insurance proceeds being referred to herein as “Net Casualty Proceeds”).

(iii) Prior to Substantial Completion, the Net Casualty Proceeds from any casualty loss affecting the Mortgaged Property shall be treated as a Non-Interest Balancing Deposit and disbursed in accordance with the provisions of Section 2.05 hereof if within ninety (90) days after the applicable casualty loss, Borrower satisfies Lender that the construction can be completed by the Final Completion Date. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default or in the event Borrower is unable to satisfy the conditions set forth above by the required date, Lender, shall have the right (but not the obligation) to apply all Net Casualty Proceeds held by it to the payment of the Obligations.

(iv) After Substantial Completion, Lender shall cause the Net Casualty Proceeds from any casualty loss affecting the Mortgaged Property to be disbursed for the cost of reconstruction of the Mortgaged Property if all of the following conditions are satisfied within ninety (90) days after the applicable casualty loss: (A) Borrower satisfies Lender that the reconstruction can be completed within a reasonable period of time after such casualty loss (but in no event later than the Maturity Date) and that after giving effect to such reconstruction the Mortgaged Property will be restored to its condition immediately prior to the casualty loss; (B) Borrower satisfies Lender that the Net Casualty Proceeds are sufficient to pay all costs of reconstruction, and if insufficient, Borrower deposits with Lender additional funds to make up such insufficiency; and (C) Borrower delivers to Lender all plans and specifications and construction contracts for the work of reconstruction and such plans and specifications and construction contracts are in form and content acceptable to Lender and with a contractor acceptable to Lender. The

 

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 44


disbursement of Net Casualty Proceeds pursuant to this clause (iv) shall be in accordance with customary disbursement procedures and shall not be available after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default. Any Net Casualty Proceeds not required to reconstruct the Mortgaged Property shall be delivered to Borrower after expiration of the lien period for the work of reconstruction (or, at Borrower’s option, after delivery of title insurance to Lender, over such liens where the lien period has not so expired). Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default or in the event Borrower is unable to satisfy the conditions set forth in subclauses (A) through (D) hereof by the required date, Lender, shall have the right (but not the obligation) to apply all Net Casualty Proceeds held by it to the payment of the Obligations. Borrower shall have the obligation to promptly and diligently complete the work of reconstruction necessitated by any casualty loss and restore the Mortgaged Property to the equivalent of its condition immediately prior to such casualty provided the applicable Net Casualty Proceeds are made available to Borrower for such purpose.

(v) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of a casualty of $25,000.00 or less, Borrower shall not be required to provide plans and specifications and construction contracts for the restoration work to Lender and the insurance proceeds shall be paid directly to Borrower.

7.02 Condemnation and Other Awards. Immediately upon receiving written notice of the institution or threatened institution of any proceeding for the condemnation of the Mortgaged Property or any part thereof, Borrower shall notify Lender of such fact. Borrower shall then file or defend its rights thereunder and prosecute the same with due diligence to its final disposition; provided, however, that Borrower shall not enter into any settlement of such proceeding without the prior approval of Lender. Lender shall be entitled, at its option, to appear in any such proceeding in its own name, and upon the occurrence and during the continuation of a Default or if Borrower fails to diligently prosecute such proceeding, (a) Lender shall be entitled, at its option, to appear in and prosecute any such proceeding or to make any compromise or settlement in connection with such condemnation on behalf of Borrower, and (b) Borrower hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints Lender as its attorney-in-fact, and such appointment is coupled with an interest, to commence, appear in and prosecute such action or proceeding or to make such compromise or settlement in connection with any such condemnation on its behalf. The foregoing appointment is irrevocable and continuing so long as the Commitments or Obligations remain outstanding, and such rights, powers and privileges shall be exclusive in Lender, its successors and assigns. If the Mortgaged Property or any material part thereof is taken or materially diminished in value in connection with such condemnation, or if a consent settlement is entered, by or under threat of such proceeding, the award or settlement payable to Borrower by virtue of its interest in the Mortgaged Property, shall be, and by these presents is, assigned, transferred and set over unto Lender. Any such award or settlement shall be first applied to reimburse Lender for all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, incurred in connection with the collection of such award or settlement. The balance of such award or settlement (the “Net Condemnation Proceeds”) shall be paid to Lender for application in the manner set forth in Section 7.01(g) as if such award or settlement constituted insurance proceeds from a casualty loss; provided, however, that Lender shall have no obligation to make Net Condemnation Proceeds available for construction or reconstruction of the Mortgaged Property unless Lender has determined that the Mortgaged Property as so constructed or reconstructed after giving effect to the condemnation would have a value that is no less than its value would have been had there been no such condemnation. Borrower shall have the obligation to promptly and diligently complete the work of reconstruction necessitated by any condemnation and restore the Mortgaged Property to substantially as near to the equivalent of its condition immediately prior to such condemnation (or if the initial construction of the Improvements is not substantially complete at the time of such condemnation, continue the construction of the Improvements in accordance with the terms hereof) provided the applicable Net Condemnation Proceeds are made available to Borrower for such purpose.

ARTICLE IX

ACCELERATION AND REMEDIES

9.01 Acceleration. If any Default described in Section 8.01(b) or (c) hereof occurs with respect to Borrower, the obligations of the Lender to make Loans hereunder shall automatically terminate and the Obligations (other than Swap Obligations included therein) shall immediately become due and payable without any election or action on the part of Lender. If any other Default occurs, Lender may terminate or suspend the Commitment, or declare the Obligations (other than Swap Obligations included therein) to be due and payable, or both, whereupon the Obligations (other than Swap Obligations included therein) shall become immediately due and payable, without presentment, demand, protest or notice of any kind, all of which Borrower hereby expressly waives. Lender has the rights and remedies with respect to the Swap Obligations as provided in the Swap Agreements.

9.02 Right to Complete Construction. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default hereunder, Lender shall have the right, in person or by agent, in addition to all other rights and remedies available to Lender under this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and the Required Third Party Documents, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to take possession of the Mortgaged Property and perform any and all work and labor necessary to complete the Improvements substantially in accordance with the Plans and Specifications (with such modifications as shall be deemed appropriate by Lender), and employ watchmen to protect the Mortgaged Property from injury. All reasonable sums so expended by Lender shall be deemed to have been paid to Borrower and constitute Obligations. Effective upon the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default, Borrower hereby constitutes and appoints Lender its true and lawful attorney-in-fact, with full power of substitution, to so complete the Improvements in the name of Borrower. Borrower hereby empowers said attorney to: (a) use any funds of Borrower, including any funds which may remain undisbursed hereunder for the purpose of so completing the Improvements; (b) make such additions, changes and corrections in the Plans and Specifications as Lender deems appropriate; (c) employ such contractors, subcontractors, agents, architects and inspectors as shall be required for said purposes; (d) pay, settle or compromise all existing bills and claims which may be liens against the Mortgaged Property, or as may be necessary or desirable for such completion of the Improvements or for clearance of title; (e) execute all applications and certificates in the name of Borrower which may be required by any of the contract documents; (f) prosecute and defend all actions or proceedings in connection with the Mortgaged Property or the construction of the Improvements and take such action and require such performance as it deems necessary under any guaranty of completion; and (g) do any and every act which Borrower might do on its own behalf. It is further understood and agreed that this power of attorney, which shall be deemed to be a power coupled with an interest, cannot be revoked.

9.03 Curing of Defaults. Upon the occurrence of a Default hereunder, without waiving any right of acceleration or foreclosure under the Loan Documents which Lender may have by reason of such Default or any other right Lender may have against Borrower because of said Default, Lender shall have the right (but not the obligation) to take such actions and make such payments as shall be necessary to cure such Default, including, without limitation, the making of Advances. All amounts so expended shall constitute Obligations and shall be payable by Borrower on demand by Lender.

10.02 Waivers; Amendments.

(a) No Deemed Waivers; Remedies Cumulative. No failure or delay by Lender in exercising any right or power hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right or power, or any abandonment or discontinuance of steps to enforce such a right or power, preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right or power.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the making of a Loan shall not be construed as a waiver of any Default or Unmatured Default, regardless of whether Lender may have had notice or knowledge of such Default or Unmatured Default at the time.

(b) Waivers and Amendments. No provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Agreement or any Required Third Party Document may be waived, amended or modified except pursuant to an agreement or agreements in writing entered into by the Borrower and the Lender.

(b) Borrower Indemnity. Borrower shall indemnify Lender, and each Related Party of any of the foregoing Persons (each such Person being called an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from, any and all losses, claims, damages, judgments, liabilities and related expenses, including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for any Indemnitee (collectively, “Losses”), incurred by or asserted against any Indemnitee arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of (i) the execution or delivery of this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the performance by the parties hereto of their respective obligations hereunder or the consummation of the Transactions or any other transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) any Loan or the use of the proceeds therefrom, or (iv) any actual or prospective claim, litigation, investigation or proceeding relating to any of the foregoing, whether based on contract, tort or any other theory and regardless of whether any Indemnitee is a party thereto; provided that such indemnity shall not, as to any Indemnitee, be available to the extent that such Losses are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the gross negligence or wilful misconduct of such Indemnitee. The foregoing indemnity set forth in this Section 10.03(b) shall not apply (i) with respect to Taxes other than any Taxes that represent losses, claims or damages arising from any non-Tax claim and (ii) to any Losses, which are the subject of the Environmental Indemnity Agreement, it being the intention of the parties hereto that Borrower’s liability for environmental matters be governed exclusively by the Environmental Indemnity Agreement and not by this Agreement.

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 51


indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) arising out of, in connection with, or as a result of, this Agreement or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby, the Transactions, any Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof; provided that, nothing in this clause (d) shall relieve Borrower of any obligation it may have to indemnify an Indemnitee against special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages asserted against such Indemnitee by a third party.

(d) Payment of Amounts Due. All amounts due under this Section shall be payable promptly after written demand therefor.

10.04 Successors and Assigns.

(ii) Subject to Lender’s notification to Borrower of an assignment, assignee shall be a party hereto and, to the extent of the interest assigned, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and Lender shall, to the extent of the interest assigned, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an assignment covering all of Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 3.10, 3.11, 3.12, 4.16(c) and 10.03 hereof). Borrower hereby agrees to execute any amendment and/or any other document that may be necessary to effectuate such an assignment, including an amendment to this Agreement to provide for multiple lenders and an administrative agent to act on behalf of such lenders.

(c) Participations.

(i) Lender may, without the consent of Borrower, sell participations to one or more banks or other entities (a “Participant”) in all or a portion of Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and the Loans owing to it); provided that (A) Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (B) Lender shall remain solely responsible to Borrower for the performance of such obligations and (C) Borrower shall continue to deal solely and directly with Lender in connection with Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement.

CONSTRUCTION LOAN AND SECURITY AGREEMENT – PAGE 52


Section 10.04(b) hereof; provided that such Participant (A) agrees to be subject to the provisions of Section 3.14 as if it were an assignee under paragraph (b) of this Section; and (B) shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 3.10 or 3.12, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 10.08 hereof as though it were a Lender.

(ii) A Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 3.10, or 3.11 hereof than Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, unless the sale of the participation to such Participant is made with Borrower’s prior written consent.

(d) Pledges by Lender. Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of Lender, including without limitation any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank, and this Section shall not apply to any such pledge or assignment of a security interest; provided that no such pledge or assignment of a security interest shall release Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for Lender as a party hereto.

10.05 Survival. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by Borrower herein and in the certificates or other instruments delivered in connection with or pursuant to this Agreement shall be considered to have been relied upon by Lender and shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the making of any Loans, regardless of any investigation made by Lender or on its behalf and notwithstanding that Lender may have had notice or knowledge of any Default or Unmatured Default or incorrect representation or warranty at the time any credit is extended hereunder, and shall continue in full force and effect as long as the principal of or any accrued interest on any Loan or any fee or any other amount payable under this Agreement is outstanding and so long as the Commitment has not expired or terminated. The provisions of Sections 3.10, 3.11, 3.12, 4.16(c) and 10.03 hereof shall survive and remain in full force and effect regardless of the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, the repayment of the Loans, the expiration or termination the Commitments or the termination of this Agreement or any provision hereof.

Borrower hereby irrevocably and unconditionally submits, for itself and its property, to the nonexclusive jurisdiction of any United States Federal or Texas State court sitting in Dallas, Texas, and any appellate court from any thereof, in any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, or for recognition or enforcement of any judgment, and each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees that all claims in respect of any such action or proceeding may be heard and determined in such Texas State or, to the extent permitted by law, in such Federal court. Each of the parties hereto agrees that a final judgment in any such action or proceeding shall be conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.

Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.

(d) Service of Process. Each party to this Agreement irrevocably consents to service of process in the manner provided for notices in Section 10.01. Nothing in this Agreement will affect the right of any party to this Agreement to serve process in any other manner permitted by law.

10.10 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL; WAIVER OF SPECIAL DAMAGES.

(a) WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL. EACH PARTY HERETO HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY (WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR ANY OTHER THEORY). EACH PARTY HERETO (A) CERTIFIES THAT NO REPRESENTATIVE, AGENT OR ATTORNEY OF ANY OTHER PARTY HAS REPRESENTED, EXPRESSLY OR OTHERWISE, THAT SUCH OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT, IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION, SEEK TO ENFORCE THE FOREGOING WAIVER AND (B) ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT AND THE OTHER PARTIES HERETO HAVE BEEN INDUCED TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT BY, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THE MUTUAL WAIVERS AND CERTIFICATIONS IN THIS SECTION.

and agents, including accountants, legal counsel and other advisors (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential), (b) to the extent requested by any regulatory authority, (c) to the extent required by applicable laws or regulations or by any subpoena or similar legal process, (d) to any other party to this Agreement, (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies hereunder or any suit, action or proceeding relating to the Obligations or the enforcement of rights under the Loan Documents or any Swap Agreement, (f) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any assignee of or Participant in, or any prospective assignee of or Participant in, any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement or (ii) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any Swap Agreement relating to Borrower and its obligations, (g) with the consent of Borrower, (h) to holders of equity interests in Borrower, or (i) to the extent such Information (x) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section or (y) becomes available to Lender on a non-confidential basis from a source other than Borrower. For the purposes of this Section, “Information” means all information received from Borrower relating to Borrower or its business, other than any such information that is available to Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by Borrower; provided that, in the case of information received from Borrower after the date hereof, such information is clearly identified at the time of delivery as confidential. Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided in this Section shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such Information as such Person would accord to its own confidential information.

LENDER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT INFORMATION (AS DEFINED IN THIS SECTION) FURNISHED TO IT PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT MAY INCLUDE MATERIAL NON-PUBLIC INFORMATION CONCERNING BORROWER, THE GUARANTOR, AND THEIR RELATED PARTIES OR THEIR RESPECTIVE SECURITIES, AND CONFIRMS THAT IT HAS DEVELOPED COMPLIANCE PROCEDURES REGARDING THE USE OF MATERIAL NON-PUBLIC INFORMATION AND THAT IT WILL HANDLE SUCH MATERIAL NON-PUBLIC INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THOSE PROCEDURES AND APPLICABLE LAW, INCLUDING FEDERAL AND STATE SECURITIES LAWS.

10.13 Interest Rate Limitation. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if at any time the interest rate applicable to any Loan, together with all fees, charges and other amounts which are treated as interest on such Loan under applicable law (collectively the “Charges”), shall exceed the maximum lawful rate (the “Maximum Rate”) which may be contracted for, charged, taken, received or reserved by Lender in accordance with applicable law, the rate of interest payable in respect of such Loan hereunder, together with all Charges payable in respect thereof, shall be limited to the Maximum Rate and, to the extent lawful, the interest and Charges that would have been payable in respect of such Loan but were not payable as a result of the operation of this Section shall be cumulated and the interest and Charges payable to Lender in respect of other Loans or periods shall be increased (but not above the Maximum Rate therefor) until such cumulated amount, together with interest thereon at the Federal Funds Effective Rate to the date of repayment, shall have been received by Lender. If, for any reason whatever, the Charges paid or received on the Loans produces a rate which exceeds the Maximum Rate, the Lenders shall credit against the principal of the Loans (or, if such indebtedness shall have been paid in full, shall refund to the payor of such Charges) such portion of said Charges as shall be necessary to cause the interest paid on the Loans to produce a rate equal to the Maximum Rate. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to the holders of the Loans for the use, forbearance or detention of the Loans shall, to the extent required to avoid or minimize usury and to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of this Agreement, so that the interest rate does not exceed the Maximum Rate. The provisions of this Section shall control all agreements, whether now or hereafter existing and whether written or oral, between the parties hereto. On each day, if any, that Texas law establishes the Maximum Rate, the Maximum Rate shall be the “weekly ceiling” (as defined in Chapter 303 of the Texas Finance Code (the “Texas Finance Code”)) for that day. Administrative Agent may from time to time, as to current and future balances, implement any other ceiling under the Texas Finance Code by notice to Borrower, if and to the extent permitted by the Texas Finance Code. Without notice to Borrower or any other person or entity, the Maximum Rate shall automatically fluctuate upward and downward as and in the amount by which such maximum nonusurious rate of interest permitted by applicable law fluctuates

L. 107-56 (signed into law October 26, 2001)) (the “Act”), it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies Borrower, which information includes the name and address of Borrower and other information that will allow Lender to identify Borrower in accordance with the Act.

10.15 Replacement Documentation. Upon receipt of an affidavit of an officer of Lender as to the loss, theft, destruction or mutilation of a Note or any other security document which is not of public record, and, in the case of any such loss, theft, destruction or mutilation, Borrower will issue, in lieu thereof, a replacement Note or other security document in the same principal amount thereof and otherwise of like tenor. In the event that Borrower issues such replacement Note or other security document, Lender shall indemnify and hold harmless Borrower from any liability incurred by Borrower in connection with the lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Note or security document.
