the filing of a voluntary petition in bankruptcy or insolvency or a petition for reorganization under any bankruptcy or insolvency law by the Borrower or the admission by the Borrower that it is unable to pay its debts as they become due; or



the entering of an order, judgment or decree by any court of competent jurisdiction, on the application of a creditor adjudicating the Borrower as bankrupt or insolvent or approving a petition seeking reorganisation or appointing a receiver, trustee, liquidator, administrative receiver, administrator, compulsory manager or other similar officer over all or a substantial part of the Borrower’s assets, and such order, judgment or decree continuing unstayed and in effect for a period of ninety (90) days; or



the consent to an involuntary petition in bankruptcy or the failure to vacate, within ninety (90) days from the date of entry thereof, any order approving an involuntary petition by the Borrower.


Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, the Lender may, by notice to the Borrower, declare the Loan, all interest thereon and all other amounts payable under this Agreement to be forthwith due and payable, whereupon the Loan, all such interest and all such amounts shall become and be forthwith due and payable, without presentment, demand, protest or further notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived by the Borrower.
