Creditor ID:

If no value-added tax is invoiced, this is a financial service exempt from value-added tax. Unless the Borrower objects in writing within four weeks after booking the value-added tax, stating his or her legitimate interests (in particular no right to deduct input tax), the Savings Bank will continue to charge the loan costs plus VAT at the statutory rate. The Borrower also has the right to object if his or her right to deduct input tax changes at a later date.

3 Amount of the Obligation

The Borrower will receive separate information on the amount of the obligation under this Framework Agreement each time a guarantee is assumed. In the event that the guarantee is given in documentary form, notification shall be made by post; for electronic declaration of liability, by posting it in the electronic mailbox. The Savings Bank is authorized to obtain information from the creditors on the respective amount of the guaranteed liabilities.

4 Special Agreements

This credit can be used as a guarantee credit, for guarantees in foreign business, letters of credit and exchange rate hedging transactions.

In the case of use in foreign currency, the credit line is charged with the amount of the foreign currency amount (converted into euros) plus 20% currency change buffer.

For the conversion of the foreign currency amount into euros, the respective mean exchange rate on the first day of use in foreign currency shall apply. The mean exchange rate is the average between the purchase and sale rate. These rates are published on the BayernLB’s (Bavarian Central Bank) exchange rate sheet on its website. The mean exchange rate is derived by the Bavarian Central Bank from the so-called “Daily Foreign Exchange Settlement Rate of BayernLB”, which it calculates at around 1 p.m. The forms of use in foreign currency available to the Borrower are to be specified separately in writing, unless otherwise agreed herein. The sum of all claims, including conditional claims, arising from individual transactions issued under this Framework Agreement may not exceed the above-mentioned threshold. In the case of claims in foreign currency, the foreign currency amount shall be converted into euros on the basis of the current mean rate of exchange. If the maximum threshold is exceeded on three consecutive banking days at any one time and if this results in a change in the risk situation, the Savings Bank may demand that the Borrower provide or increase collateral to secure its claim in accordance with No. 22 (a) of the General Terms and Conditions. This shall also apply to a loan initially granted without collateral.

The Savings Bank will maintain separate guarantee accounts for domestic and foreign guarantees and for guarantees in various foreign currencies. The existing guarantee accounts no. 7000116637 (for EUR guarantees abroad) and no. 7000132410 (for USD guarantees) are included in the credit contracted herein.


For the purpose of the individual examination of guarantee orders, the Savings Bank may request from the Borrower the documents it deems necessary with regards to the main debt relationship to be secured. In relation to the Borrower, the Savings Bank shall be entitled to reject guarantee orders in justified individual cases.

The Borrower may request separate information on the current drawdown under this Framework Agreement in individual cases.


5 Securities

The Savings Bank is entitled to accept guarantees only after all requirements have been met to fully and irrevocably provide the Savings Bank with the agreed securities, the Savings Bank having received confirmation thereof, if applicable. The following securities are/have been provided/assigned to the Savings Bank - in separate contracts that regulate the details:

-Assignment of claims of ExOne GmbH according to separate contract.

-for drawdowns of over EUR 1,000,000.00; Pledging of credit balances number 250923562 at the Augsburg Municipal Savings Bank according to separate declaration.


The liability of any other existing or future securities within the scope of the respective agreed security purpose shall remain unaffected.


6 Multiple Borrowers

Multiple borrowers shall be jointly and severally liable for the obligations under this Agreement.

If one Borrower met the Savings Bank’s requirement, it does not check whether the Borrower is entitled to claims to collateral no longer required by the Savings Bank. As a matter of principle, it will return such collateral to the collateral provider unless the Borrower providing the collateral proves that the collateral provider has given its consent to transfer it to the Borrower.


7 Utilization of the Guarantee

If the Savings Bank is invoked under a Guarantee, the Borrower is obliged to immediately reimburse the Savings Bank for the amounts paid under the Guarantee. The Savings Bank is entitled to place its claim for reimbursement in its current account.

8 Term of the Agreement

The Agreement is concluded for an indefinite period and may be terminated by either party at any time without notice. The provisions of this Agreement shall continue to apply to guarantees already assumed at the time of termination. However, the Savings Bank may - without prejudice to the claim for exemption under Sec. 775 of the German Civil Code (BGB) - demand exemption from these guarantee obligations from the Borrower.

9 Disclosure and Information Obligation

Throughout the entire term of this loan, the Borrower is obliged to provide the Savings Bank or an institution commissioned by the Savings Bank with an insight into the current financial situation, to submit relevant documents (e.g. balance sheets/annual financial statements, income tax assessments and declarations, statements of assets, etc.), to provide the necessary information and to allow the Borrower’s business to be inspected. The Savings Bank is also required by law and supervisory regulations to inspect or have inspected the Borrower’s financial conditions.

The Savings Bank may request the necessary documents directly from the Borrower’s advisors in accounting and tax matters, unless the Borrower submits them to the Savings Bank within a reasonable period of at least one month after the Savings Bank’s request. If the aforementioned documents are stored on data carriers, the Borrower is obliged to make them legible within a reasonable period of time.

In the event that the Borrower fails to meet these obligations, the Savings Bank is entitled to terminate the loan relationship, requiring immediate repayment.

The Savings Bank is entitled to inspect the public registers as well as the land register and the real estate files if there is a justified reason for doing so, and to request simple or certified copies and extracts for the account of the Borrower, as well as to obtain information from insurance companies, authorities and other bodies, especially credit institutions, that is necessary to assess the credit relationship.

10 Agreement Costs

The Borrower shall bear the costs of providing collateral. The reimbursement of expenses incurred by the Savings Bank is based on the statutory provisions.

11 Place of Jurisdiction

Insofar as the jurisdiction of the Savings Bank’s general place of jurisdiction has not already been defined in Sec. 29 ZPO (German Code of Civil Procedure), the Savings Bank can pursue its claims through legal action at its general place of jurisdiction if the Borrower to be targeted in legal action is a merchant or a legal entity within the meaning of No. 6 of the General Terms and Conditions or has no general place of jurisdiction in Germany at the time of the conclusion of the Agreement or later moves his or her place of residence or habitual abode out of the Federal Republic of Germany or his or her place of residence or habitual abode is unknown at the time the action is filed.
