Progress Payment Note and Reimbursement Agreement



$2,500,000.00 Bloomfield Hills, Michigan
  June 22, 2017


This Progress Payment Note and Reimbursement Agreement (“Agreement”) is dated as of the above-stated date between Convergent Media Systems Corporation, a Georgia corporation (“Lessee”), with its principal office and initial address for notice at 190 Bluegrass Valley Pkwy., Alpharetta, GA 30005, and Huntington Technology Finance, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Lessor”), with its principal office, initial address for notice, and initial address for payments at 2285 Franklin Rd., Suite 100, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302.




A. Lessee and LG-MRI LLC (“Seller”) are parties to Lessee’s Purchase Order No. POP00026560 dated April 28, 2017, Revision No. 1 (collectively with any other agreement between Lessee and Seller, “Purchase Documents”), providing for Lessee’s purchase from Seller of 300 vehicle top displays and multi-purpose antennas and certain non-recurring engineering services and spares to be supplied by Seller (collectively, “Equipment”) for a total purchase price of $5,628,885.26 (“Total Price”). Seller requires that Lessee make a progress payment toward payment of the Total Price in the amount of $2,500,000 (the “Progress Payment”). Seller invoiced Lessee for a progress payment in a previous amount under Seller’s Invoice No. 170508-01M dated May 8, 2017, and will issue a complete and correct replacement invoice or amendment to the previously issued invoice to bill Lessor or Lessee for the Progress Payment (“Progress Payment Invoice”).


B.   Lessee, Lessor, and Seller are parties to an Assignment of Purchase Agreement dated June 22, 2017 (“Assignment”) pursuant to which Lessee assigned all of its right, title, and interest in and under the Purchase Documents and the Equipment to Lessor, but not any of Lessee’s obligations, other than the obligation to pay the Total Price, subject to the conditions stated therein, including paying the Progress Payment Invoice to Seller when the conditions thereto are fulfilled.
C.   Lessee and Lessor are parties to the Master Equipment lease Agreement dated May 19, 2017 (“Master Lease”) pursuant to which Lessee and Lessor intend to enter into schedules providing for the lease of the Equipment (together with certain other equipment and/or related soft cost items, “Other Items”) (a Schedule, together with the Master Lease as applicable to and incorporated therein, a “Lease”).
D.   Lessee is making this Agreement in consideration of the foregoing, and for other good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency and receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, to facilitate Lessor’s advancing the Progress Payment to Seller and to memorialize Lessee’s undertaking to repay the Progress Payment to Lessor.




1. Principal. Lessee hereby promises to pay to the order of Lessor, at Lessor’s initial address for payment stated above, or such other place as the holder of this Agreement may from time to time designate in writing, the principal sum of $2,500,000 to be paid or unconditionally undertaken to be paid by Lessor to Seller when the conditions to the making of such payment as set forth in the Assignment are fulfilled, and which payment or undertaking shall constitute an advance of funds to Lessee to be repaid under the terms of this Agreement. The principal balance from time to time outstanding under this Agreement shall bear interest from the date Lessor remits to Seller the principal amount under this Agreement at the rate of 3¾% per annum, or at such lesser rate as may be the lawful maximum, calculated on the basis of a 360-day year comprising twelve 30-day months.

2. Payment of Principal and Interest. The principal balance of this Agreement to the extent (and only to the extent) ratably associated with the Progress Payment for any Equipment (“Applicable Equipment”), but not any then-accrued interest, shall be considered repaid under this Agreement, only if and when Lessor or its Financer (as defined in the Lease) pay Seller the remaining balance of the Total Price ratably associated with the Applicable Equipment (“Final Payment”). Neither Lessor nor its Financer will have any obligation to pay the Final Payment to Seller before:


  (a) Lessee and Lessor duly execute a Lease for the Applicable Equipment in the form of Exhibit A hereto or such other form as the parties may agree upon (“Applicable Lease”) with:


  (i) the Lessor’s Basis for the Applicable Equipment under the Applicable Lease being the Total Price of the Applicable Equipment;
  (ii) the Rental Payment for the Applicable Equipment under the Applicable Lease being the Lessor’s Basis multiplied by Applicable Lease Rate Factor, where: (A) the “Applicable Lease Rate Factor” means the Initial Lease Rate Factor as adjusted by Lessor, as of the date Lessor receives the executed Lease for the Applicable Equipment and all other conditions to the payment of the Final Payment are fulfilled, to reflect any increase in the Applicable Rate from the rate with reference to which Lessor established the Initial Lease Rate Factor, or any change in the ratio of hardware to non-hardware, in each case using the same methodology, spreads, and assumptions originally used by Lessor in establishing the Initial Lease Rate Factor; (B) the “Initial Lease Rate Factor” means 0.0174546, which factors were originally established by Lessor with reference to an Applicable Rate of 2.15%, and assumes that not more than 5.6% of the Lessor’s Basis represents non-hardware or soft cost items; and (C) the “Applicable Rate” means the rate of 5-year interest rate swaps as reported by the Intercontinental Exchange (currently available as USD Rates 1100 Series at https://‌www.theice.com/‌marketdata/‌reports/‌180) or other sources Lessor reasonably deems reliable for the most recently reported business day occurring on or before the adjustment date; and
  (iii) any Other Items shall have a Lessor’s Basis and Rental Payment being similarly determined from the cost thereof and the Applicable Lease Rate Factor;


  (b) Lessee receives and inspects the Applicable Equipment, irrevocably and unconditionally accepts and provides Lessor with a satisfactory acceptance certificate for the Applicable Equipment under the Applicable Lease (“Applicable Acceptance Certificate”).
  (c) Lessee is in full compliance with (and not in default under) the Applicable Lease.
  (d) There shall not have occurred in Lessor’s or its Financer’s (as defined in Exhibit A) absolute opinion a material adverse change in the financial condition, business, or prospects of Lessee after the date of the financial information used by Lessor or its Financer in evaluating and/or approving and/or preliminarily approving Lessee’s credit in connection with the Applicable Lease.
  (e) Lessor receives satisfactory evidence of the names, titles, signatures, and authority of the persons signing on behalf of Lessee the Master Lease, the Lease, the Applicable Acceptance Certificate, and any acknowledgment of assignment in favor of Lessor’s Financer.


 Page 2 of 8  



  (f) Any and all other conditions to Lessor’s leasing of the Applicable Equipment under the Applicable Lease, and payment to Seller therefor, under this Agreement, the Assignment, or the Lease, shall have been fulfilled.


The parties presently anticipate that they will enter into 4 Leases to cover all of the Equipment, each cover approximately ¼ of the Equipment. However, the amount of Equipment under each Lease, and whether fewer or more Leases must be entered into shall be determined in Lessor’s sole discretion, including as it may consider necessary or convenient to facilitate the funding or financing of the Leases with its Financer(s), and/or the timing thereof.


The entirety of the outstanding principal balance of this Agreement not considered repaid pursuant to the foregoing on or before August 31, 2017 as further provided in this section shall be due on demand. All interest at any time accrued and unpaid under this Agreement shall be due on demand.


3. Unconditional Obligation. All payments of principal and interest under this Agreement shall be absolute and unconditional and paid by Lessee without abatement, reduction, offset, recoupment, compensation, crossclaim, counterclaim, or any other defense whatsoever, arising under this Agreement, any Lease, or otherwise, or against Lessor, Lessor’s Financers or other assignees, Seller, the Equipment’s manufacturer, or any other person. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, all payments shall be made under this Agreement regardless of, and Lessee specifically shall at all times bear all risk of: (a) loss or taking of or damage to or non-delivery or non-provision of any or all Equipment, including, without limitation, as a result of the inability of Seller, or any manufacturer(s) of Equipment, or any of Seller’s suppliers, to deliver or provide any Equipment due to financial inability, lack of creditworthiness or credit availability, bankruptcy, receivership, improper management, inability to obtain sufficient labor, force majeure, legal inability or prohibition, war or act of war (whether or not war is declared), insurrection, riot, civil disturbance or commotion, labor dispute or shortage, strike, act of public enemy, accident, fire, flood or other act of God, act of any governmental authority or other third party, judicial action, short or reduced supply of energy, fuel, raw materials, or components, or technical inability or failure, or for any other reason whatsoever, whether nor not within the control of any person, and whether or not similar to the risks described in this Agreement, (b) nonconformance of the Equipment with specifications or requirements or applicable laws or any applicable agreements (whether or not Lessee is a party thereto), (c) the lack of fitness of the Equipment for any particular or intended use by Lessee, (d) the Equipment not being merchantable or provided in a good or workmanlike manner, or (e) in general, the Equipment being in any way or for any reason unavailable or unacceptable to Lessee, or any other circumstance subsisting, so as to prevent Lessee or Lessor from (or hinder the) entering into of a Lease therefor, Lessee’s accepting the Equipment thereunder, and Lessee’s executing an acceptance certificate with respect thereto, and/or so as to prevent (or hinder) the satisfaction of any other conditions to Lessor’s obligations with respect to any Equipment or Lease (including such as may relate a Financer or Lessor’s transaction with a Financer).
4. Covenants. So long as any amounts are outstanding hereunder, Lessee will furnish Lessor with its annual certified or audited and quarterly financial statements (at any time that its current financial statements are not readily available on the internet through a free governmental website).
5. Disclaimer. As between Lessee and Lessor, Lessee’s right, title, and interest in the Equipment is As-Is, Where-Is, and without recourse to Lessor. Lessor will not be considered to have made any statement, representation, warranty, or promise made by Seller, and neither Seller nor Lessor shall be considered to be an agent of the other. Lessor will have no liability to Lessee, or its customers, or any other persons, for damages or specific performance arising out of this Agreement or the Assignment or concerning any Equipment, including direct, indirect, special, or consequential damages, or damages based on strict or absolute tort liability, except for direct damages resulting from Lessor’s breach of this Agreement or the Assignment.

  3. Sale Leaseback. With respect to [describe any Equipment to be subject to a sale-leaseback] (“SLB Equipment”), which Lessee is selling to Lessor for lease back to Lessee hereunder, for the sum of [describe cost to Lessor of the SLB Equipment] (“SLB Price”), Lessee hereby sells, assigns, and transfers to Lessor, all of the Lessee’s right, title and interest in and to the SLB Equipment, and any warranties on the SLB Equipment, and agrees to provide reasonable assistance in enforcing those warranties. The SLB Price will be paid by ordinary business check when all of the conditions to Lessor’s acquisition and lease of the Equipment under this Lease have been satisfied and Lessor shall have received such evidence of Lessee’s ownership interest in the SLB Equipment as Lessor may request, including evidence of Lessee’s payment to the person from whom it purchased the SLB Equipment (“Original Seller”), Original Seller invoices identifying the SLB Equipment, bills of sale, and other such documentation as Lessor may request.
