The Company has made a $50,000 earnest money deposit to the Best Western Seller, which shall become non-refundable forty-five (45) days following the execution of the PSA, subject to the right of the Company to extend such period for an additional ten (10) days, if the Company does not terminate the PSA prior to expiration of such period (the “Inspection Period”).
