This Note amends and restates in its entirety that certain Amended and Restated Subordinated Promissory Note dated July 22, 2015 (as the same has been amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented or otherwise modified prior to the date hereof, the “Original Note”), made by Company in favor of the Holder in the original principal amount of US$2,548,832.43 and for which, as of March 5, 2018 (the “Restatement Effective Date”), the principal amount (excluding any unpaid interest not yet accreted to principal or paid in cash) outstanding is US$3,435,326.20 immediately prior to being amended and restated hereby. The Company and the Holder acknowledge and agree that upon and after giving effect to the amendment and restatement of the Original Note hereby on the Restatement Effective Date, a total of US$3,435,326.20 will be outstanding under this Note and, the Original Note shall be deemed to be replaced by this Note.

5. Subordination.

(a) Subordination to Senior Debt. The Company, for itself and its successors, and the Holder, by acceptance of this Note, agrees that the Subordinated Debt shall, to the extent and in the manner hereinafter set forth, be subordinate and junior to the prior payment in full of all Senior Debt. This Section 5 will constitute a continuing offer to all persons who, in reliance upon its provisions, become Senior Debt Holders or continue to hold Senior Debt, and such provisions are made for the benefit of the Senior Debt Holders, and such Senior Debt Holders are made obligees under this Section 5 and they and/or each of them may enforce its provisions. This Section 5 shall be enforceable in any Insolvency Event in accordance with its terms and shall constitute a “subordination agreement” for purposes of the United States Bankruptcy Code. Each of the Senior Debt Holders are express third party beneficiaries of this Section 5 and Section 7 of this Note.

(b) Company Not to Make Payments with Respect to Subordinated Debt.

(i) Except as expressly permitted by the Senior Credit Documents or expressly consented to by the BOA Agent and the Crystal Agent, until the Senior Debt has been paid in full, no payment by or on behalf of the Company or any other Person may be made on account of any Subordinated Debt (including, for the avoidance of doubt, a AHYDO Catch-Up Payment), it being understood that, notwithstanding any restrictions contained therein or herein, interest may be paid in kind and accreted to principal on each accrual period.

(ii) Until the Senior Debt has been paid in full, the Holder shall not take any action or exercise any remedy against the Company or any other person liable for any obligations thereunder on account of the Subordinated Debt (including commencing any legal action, or filing or joining in the filing of any insolvency petition against the Company) except for the filing of a claim or proof of claim required to preserve Holder’s rights hereunder subject to Section 5(e)(i) and otherwise as expressly set forth in Section 6(b) relating to an Event of Default pursuant to Section 6(a)(ii).

 

5


(c) Note Subordinated to Prior Payment of all Senior Debt on Dissolution, Liquidation or Reorganization of the Company. In the event an Insolvency Event occurs, then:

(i) the Senior Debt Holders shall first be entitled to receive payment in full of all Senior Debt (including all interest, fees and expenses accruing before and after the commencement of the proceedings, whether or not allowed or allowable as a claim in such proceedings) before the Holder is entitled to receive any payment on account of the principal of, or interest on, any Subordinated Debt.

(ii) any payment or distribution of assets of the Company or any other Person of any kind or character, whether in cash, property or securities to which the Holder would be entitled, but for the provisions of this Note, shall be paid or distributed by the liquidating trustee or agent or other person making such payment or distribution, whether a trustee in bankruptcy, a receiver or liquidating trustee or other trustee or agent, directly to the Senior Debt Holders to be applied to the Senior Debt in accordance with the Senior Credit Documents.

(d) Proofs of Claim. If, while any Senior Debt is outstanding, any Event of Default under Section 6(a)(ii) of this Agreement occurs with respect to the Company, the Holder shall duly and promptly take such action as the Senior Debt Holders may reasonably request to collect any payment with respect to the Subordinated Debt for the account of the Senior Debt Holders and to file appropriate claims or proofs of claim in respect of the Subordinated Debt. Upon the failure of the Holder to take any such action, the Senior Debt Holders are hereby irrevocably authorized and empowered (in its own name or otherwise), but shall have no obligation, to demand, sue for, collect and receive every payment or distribution referred to in respect of the Subordinated Debt and to file claims and proofs of claim and take such other action as it may deem necessary or advisable for the exercise or enforcement of any of the rights or interests of the Holder with respect to the Subordinated Debt.

(e) Rights of Holders of Senior Debt; Subrogation.

(i) Should any payment or distribution or security or the proceeds of any thereof be collected or received by the Holder in respect of any Subordinated Debt at a time when such payment or distribution should not have been so made or received because of the provisions of this Section 5, except as expressly permitted by the Senior Credit Documents or expressly consented to by the BOA Agent and the Crystal Agent, the Holder will forthwith deliver the same to the Senior Debt Holders for the benefit of the Senior Debt Holders, to be applied in accordance with the Senior Credit Documents in precisely the form received (except for the endorsement or the assignment of or by such holder where necessary), and, until so delivered, the same shall be held in trust by the Holder as the property of the Senior Debt Holders.

(ii) Upon the payment in full of all Senior Debt, the Holder will be subrogated to the rights of the Senior Debt Holders to receive payments or distributions of assets of the Company applicable to the Senior Debt until all amounts owing on the Subordinated Debt have been paid in full, and for the purpose of such subrogation no such payments or distributions to the Senior Debt Holders by or on behalf of the Company or by or on behalf of the Holder by virtue of this Section 5 which otherwise would have been made to the Holder will, as between the Company and the Holder, be deemed to be payment by the Company to or on account of the Senior Debt, it being understood that the provisions of this Section 5 are and are intended to be solely for the purpose of defining the relative rights of the Holder on the one hand, and the Senior Debt Holders, on the other hand.

 

6


(f) Subordination Rights Not Impaired by Acts or Omissions of the Company or Holders of the Senior Debt. No right of any present or future Senior Debt Holders to enforce subordination as provided herein will at any time in any way be prejudiced or impaired by any act or failure to act on the part of the Company or by any act or failure to act, in good faith, by any such Senior Debt Holders, or by any noncompliance by the Company with the terms of this Note regardless of any knowledge thereof which any such Senior Debt Holders may have or otherwise be charged with. The Senior Debt Holders may extend, renew, increase, modify or amend the terms of the Senior Debt or any security therefor and release, sell or exchange such security and otherwise deal freely with the Company, in each case, without the consent of or notice to the Holder and without impairing or releasing the obligations of the Holder under the provisions hereof; provided, however, that no such extension, renewal, increase, modification or amendment shall relieve the Company of its obligations to pay principal and interest as provided herein.

(g) The Subordinated Debt is and shall remain unsecured, and no Company Party shall provide any guarantee in respect of the Subordinated Debt. In the event that, notwithstanding the preceding sentence, the Holder ever acquires a lien on or security interest in any assets of the Company or any other person or entity or any Company Party guarantees the Subordinated Debt, then the Senior Debt and Senior Credit Documents and all guaranties, mortgages, security agreements, pledges and other collateral guarantying or securing the Senior Debt or any part thereof shall be senior to the Subordinated Debt irrespective of the time of the execution, delivery or issuance of any thereof or the filing or recording for perfection of any thereof or the filing of any financing statement or continuation statement relating to any thereof.

(h) The Holder shall not assign or transfer any claim, or suffer or permit the creation or attachment of any lien, claim, encumbrance, hypothecation or pledge upon any claim, that the Holder has or may have against the Company or with respect to the Subordinated Debt unless such assignment or transfer is made expressly subject to the terms of this Note, including the subordination provisions of this Section 5 and the assignee or transferee executes an acknowledgement thereof in favor of the Senior Debt Holders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the subordination effected hereby shall survive any sale, assignment, pledge, disposition or other transfer of all or any portion of the Subordinated Debt in violation of the foregoing prohibition, and the provisions hereof shall be binding upon the successors and assigns of the Holder.

6. Events of Default.

(a) An “Event of Default” occurs if:

(i) the Company defaults in the payment of the principal of, or interest on, this Note when the same becomes due and payable at maturity, upon acceleration, or otherwise; or

 

7


(ii) the Company shall generally not pay its debts as such debts become due, or shall admit in writing its inability to pay its debts generally, or shall make a general assignment for the benefit of creditors, or any proceeding shall be instituted by or against any Company seeking to adjudicate it a bankrupt or insolvent, or seeking liquidation, winding up, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, protection, relief, or composition of it or its debts under any law relating to bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization or relief of debtors, or seeking the entry of an order for relief or the appointment of a receiver, trustee, or other similar official for it or for any substantial part of its property and in the case of any such proceeding instituted against the Company such proceeding shall not be stayed or dismissed within sixty (60) days from the date of institution thereof.

(b) Acceleration. Subject to the provisions of Section 5, if an Event of Default (other than an Event of Default specified in clause (a)(ii) of Section 6) occurs and is continuing, the Holder, by written notice to the Company, the BOA Agent and the Crystal Agent (an “Acceleration Notice”), may declare the unpaid principal of and accrued interest on this Note to be immediately due and payable. Upon such declaration, if there is at such time any Senior Debt outstanding, the principal of and interest on this Note shall be due and payable upon an acceleration under the applicable Senior Debt. If an Event of Default specified in clause (a)(ii) of Section 6 occurs, all principal of and interest on this Note outstanding shall ipso facto become and be immediately due and payable without any declaration or other act on the part of the Holder. Any amounts received by the Holder in connection with any action taken pursuant to this Section 6(b) shall be subject to the provisions of Section 5.

(c) Remedies Cumulative. A delay or omission by the Holder in exercising any right or remedy accruing upon an Event of Default shall not impair the right or remedy or constitute a waiver of or acquiescence in the Event of Default. No remedy is exclusive of any other remedy. All remedies are cumulative to the extent permitted by law.

7. Amendment and Waiver.

(a) Consent Required.

(i) Subject to clauses (ii) and (iii) below, this Note may be amended and compliance hereunder waived (either generally or in a particular instance and either retroactively or prospectively), upon the agreement of the Company and the Holder, which agreement shall be in writing and shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which given.

(ii) So long as the BOA Debt and the Crystal Debt has not been paid in full, (i) the subordination provisions of this Note (including Section 5 hereof) or this Section 7 may not be amended without the consent in writing of the holders of a majority in principal amount of (x) the BOA Debt under the BOA Credit Agreement and (y) the Crystal Debt under the Crystal Credit Agreement and (ii) no other provisions of this Note may be amended without the consent in writing of the holders of a majority in principal amount of the (x) the BOA Debt under the BOA Credit Agreement and (y) the Crystal Debt under the Crystal Credit Agreement if such amendment is adverse to the Senior Debt Holders.

(b) Effect of Amendment or Waiver. Any amendment or waiver shall be binding upon the Holder, upon each future holder of this Note and upon the Company, whether or not this Note shall have been marked to indicate such amendment or waiver. No such amendment or waiver shall extend to or affect any obligation not expressly amended or waived or impair any right consequent thereon.

8. Replacement Notes. If a mutilated Note is surrendered to the Company or if the Holder presents evidence to the reasonable satisfaction of the Company that this Note has been lost, destroyed or wrongfully taken, the Company shall issue a replacement note of like tenor if the requirements of the Company for such transactions are met. An indemnity agreement may be required that is sufficient in the reasonable judgment of the Company to protect the Company from any loss which it may suffer.

9. No Recourse Against Others. No director, officer, employee or stockholder, as such, of the Company shall have any liability for any obligations of the Company under this Note or for any claim based on, in respect or by reason of, such obligations or their creation. The Holder by accepting this Note waives and releases all such liability. This waiver and release are part of the consideration for the issue of this Note.
