If any Milestone Advance within a Mission Specific Milestone Advance Group is accelerated by Rocket Lab following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Borrower shall immediately pay to Rocket Lab an amount equal to the sum of: (A) all accrued and unpaid interest with respect to such Milestone Advance through the date the prepayment is made; plus (B) all unpaid principal with respect to such Milestone Advance; plus (C) all other sums, if any, that shall have become due and payable with respect to such Milestone Advance; provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, if such acceleration is due to a Specified Mission Event of Default as set forth in Section 8.9, Borrower’s obligations to pay the amounts set forth in clauses (A) to (C) hereof shall be limited solely to the Mission Specific Milestone Advance Group applicable to such Specified Mission and not to any other Milestone Advances. 2.5 Payment of Interest on the Milestone Advances.

(c) Payment; Interest Computation. Milestone Advance Interest Payments related to any Mission are to be made in arrears on each Quarterly Payment Date to occur after the funding of the first Milestone Advance made in connection with such Mission and shall be computed on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360) day year for the actual number of days elapsed. In computing interest, the date of the making of any Milestone Advance shall be included and the date of payment shall be excluded; provided, however, that if any Milestone Advance is repaid on the same day on which it is made, such day shall be included in computing interest on such Milestone Advance. 2.6 Payments. All payments to be made by Borrower under any Loan Document shall be made in immediately available funds in Dollars, without setoff or counterclaim, before 12:00 p.m. Pacific time on the date when due. Payments of principal and/or interest received after 12:00 p.m. Pacific time may be considered received at the opening of business on the next Business Day. When a payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment shall be due the next Business Day, and additional fees or interest, as applicable, shall continue to accrue until paid. 2.7 Withholding. Payments received by Rocket Lab from Borrower under this Agreement will be made free and clear of and without deduction for any and all present or future taxes, levies, imposts, duties, deductions, withholdings, assessments, fees or other charges imposed by any Governmental Authority (including any interest, additions to tax or penalties applicable thereto). Specifically, however, if at any time any Governmental Authority, applicable law, regulation or international agreement requires Borrower to make any withholding or deduction from any such payment or other sum payable hereunder to Rocket Lab, Borrower hereby agrees that the amount due from Borrower with respect to such payment or other sum payable hereunder will be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of such required withholding or deduction, Rocket Lab receives a net sum equal to the sum which it would have received had no withholding or deduction been required, and Borrower shall pay the full amount withheld or deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrower shall not be required to make any withholding payment if the amount or validity of such withholding payment is contested in good faith by appropriate and timely proceedings. The agreements and obligations of Borrower contained in this Section 2.7 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

Loan Parties bear all risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral. 9.5 No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative.

Rocket Lab’s rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents are cumulative. Rocket Lab has all rights and remedies provided under the Code, by law, or in equity. Rocket Lab’s exercise of one right or remedy is not an election and shall not preclude Rocket Lab from exercising any other remedy under this Agreement or other remedy available at law or in equity, and Rocket Lab’s waiver of any Event of Default is not a continuing waiver. Rocket Lab’s delay in exercising any remedy is not a waiver, election, or acquiescence. 9.6 Demand Waiver. Except for any notices expressly contemplated herein or in any of the Loan Documents, each Loan Party waives demand, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of accounts, documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees held by Rocket Lab on which such Loan Party is liable. 10 NOTICES All notices, consents, requests, approvals, demands, or other communication by any party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document must be in writing and shall be deemed to have been validly served, given, or delivered: (a) upon the earlier of actual receipt and four (4) Business Days after deposit in the U.S. mail, first class, registered or certified mail return receipt requested, with proper postage prepaid; (b) upon transmission, when sent by electronic mail or facsimile transmission; (c) one (1) Business Day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier with all charges prepaid; or (d) when delivered, if hand-delivered by messenger, all of which shall be addressed to the party to be notified and sent to the address, facsimile number, or email address indicated below.

Each provision of this Agreement is severable from every other provision in determining the enforceability of any provision. 12.4 Correction of Loan Documents. Rocket Lab may correct patent errors and fill in any blanks in the Loan Documents consistent with the agreement of the parties so long as Rocket Lab provides Borrower with written notice of such correction and allows Borrower at least ten (10) days to object to such correction. In the event of such objection, such correction shall not be made except by an amendment signed by both Rocket Lab and Borrower. 12.5 Amendments in Writing; Waiver; Integration. No purported amendment or modification of any Loan Document, or waiver, discharge or termination of any obligation under any Loan Document, shall be enforceable or admissible unless, and only to the extent, expressly set forth in a writing by the Loan Parties and Rocket Lab.

This Guaranty is a continuing and irrevocable guaranty of all Obligations now or hereafter existing and shall remain in full force and effect until the Maturity Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Guaranty shall continue in full force and effect or be revived, as the case may be, if any payment by or on behalf of Borrower or a Guarantor is made, or Rocket Lab exercises its right of setoff, in respect of the Obligations and such payment or the proceeds of such setoff or any part thereof is subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by Rocket Lab in its discretion) to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party, in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Laws or otherwise, all as if such payment had not been made or such setoff had not occurred and whether or not Rocket Lab is in possession of or have released this Guaranty and regardless of any prior revocation, rescission, termination or reduction. The obligations of each Guarantor under this Section 13.6 shall survive termination of this Guaranty. 13.7 Stay of Acceleration. If acceleration of the time for payment of any of the Obligations is stayed, in connection with any case commenced by or against a Guarantor or Borrower under any Debtor Relief Laws, or otherwise, all such amounts shall nonetheless be payable by each Guarantor, jointly and severally, immediately upon demand by Rocket Lab. 13.8 Condition of Borrower.
