Creditor may apply any proceeds of such insurance, which it receives in payment on account of the Indebtedness, whether due or not. If any insurance required hereby expires, is cancelled or modified or is otherwise not in full force and effect, Creditor may, but need not, obtain replacement insurance for its own account. Creditor may, but need not, pay the premiums for required insurance (if Customer fails to pay) and/or for any replacement insurance, and the amount of all premiums so paid by Creditor shall be added to the Indebtedness. Customer shall, upon demand, reimburse Creditor for the amount of any premiums so paid with interest thereon at the maximum lawful daily rate, not to exceed 0.05% per day (to the extent permitted by law) from the date paid by Creditor until fully reimbursed to Creditor. 5. Creditor shall have the right, at any reasonable time, to inspect all or any portion of the Collateral and/or Customer’s books and records. Customer shall assist Creditor in making any such inspection and Customer shall reimburse Creditor for its costs and expenses of making such inspection(s); provided that, absent an Event of Default, Customer need only reimburse Creditor for one such inspection per calendar year. Upon request, Customer will, from time to time, furnish current year-end and quarterly financial statements to Creditor in form and content satisfactory to Creditor (prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, consistently applied). 6. If Customer shall fail to fully and timely pay, perform and fulfill any of its obligations, covenants or agreements to or with Creditor and/or if Customer shall breach any of its warranties to Creditor under this Agreement or otherwise, Creditor shall have the option, in its sole discretion and without any obligation, to pay, perform or fulfill or cause the payment, performance or fulfillment of same on behalf of Customer; and all costs and expenses incurred by Creditor in connection therewith (including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, bond premiums, court costs, costs of retaking, storing, preserving, selling and/or realizing on any Collateral) shall be added to the Indebtedness hereby secured and shall be payable by Customer to Creditor upon demand together with interest thereon at the maximum lawful daily rate, not to exceed 0.05% per day, from the date advanced by Creditor until fully repaid. Creditor shall have no obligation to make any demand upon or give any notice to Customer prior to the exercise of any of its rights under this paragraph; and neither the exercise nor the failure to exercise any such rights by Creditor shall relieve Customer of any default or constitute a waiver of Creditor’s right to enforce strict compliance with the terms of this Agreement at any time. 7. Customer hereby assumes all liability for loss or damage to the Collateral and for the use, possession, maintenance and management thereof and assumes liability for and agrees to indemnify and hold Creditor harmless from and against and covenants to defend Creditor against, all claims, causes of action, liabilities and damages for injuries to or death of any person and for damage to or destruction of any property arising out of or related to the use, maintenance, possession or management of the Collateral.

and hold harmless Creditor from all expense, loss, cost, liability and damage (including attorneys’ fees) that Creditor may incur or sustain in obtaining or enforcing payment or performance of any of the Indebtedness and/or exercising its rights and remedies under this Agreement and/or in connection with any action and/or proceeding and/or appeal arising out of or related to this Agreement, the Indebtedness and/or the Collateral (including but not limited to any attorney’s fees incurred in connection with any proceeding to obtain relief from stay, to obtain adequate protection, any proceedings regarding valuation of any collateral and any objection(s) to Creditor’s interests or claim). Creditor shall have no obligation to collect any income accruing on the Collateral or to preserve any rights relating to the Collateral. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall Creditor be indemnified for its own gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a final and non- appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction). 8. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, and at any time thereafter, Creditor may declare all Indebtedness immediately due and payable and shall have the rights and remedies of a Creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code including, without limitation, the right to sell, lease or otherwise dispose of any or all of the Collateral in any manner allowed by the Uniform Commercial Code. Creditor may require Customer to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Creditor at a place which is reasonably convenient for both parties; and Creditor shall have the right to take possession, with or without prior notice to Customer, of all or any part of the Collateral or any security therefor and of all books, records, papers and documents of Customer or in Customer’s possession or control relating to the Collateral and may enter upon any premises upon which any of the Collateral or any security therefor or any of such books, records, papers or documents are situated and peaceably remove the same therefrom without any liability for trespass or damages thereby occasioned. If Customer contests Creditor’s right to possession of any Collateral in any action or proceeding (however styled) Customer shall post a bond (issued by a national insurer authorized to issue such bonds in the jurisdiction of such action or proceeding) in favor of Creditor in an amount at least equal to the value of the subject matter of such action or proceeding or the unpaid Indebtedness then owing, whichever is less. Unless the Collateral is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in value or is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market, Creditor will send Customer reasonable notice of the time and place of any public sale or other disposition thereof or of the time after which any private sale or other disposition thereof is to be made. The requirement of sending reasonable notice shall be met if such notice is deposited in the U.S. Mail, postage prepaid, addressed to Customer at the address set forth in this Agreement at least ten (10) days before the time of the sale or disposition. Publication of notice, at least once, within the ten (10) days prior to sale, in a newspaper in the county where the sale of the Collateral will occur shall constitute commercially reasonable publication of the sale. The Collateral may be sold, leased or otherwise disposed of as an entirety or in such parcels as Creditor may elect, in its then condition or in any other commercially reasonable manner as Creditor may elect, and it shall not be necessary for Creditor to have actual possession of the Collateral or to have it present when the sale, lease or other disposition is made. Creditor shall have no obligation to clean up or otherwise prepare any Collateral for sale. Proceeds from any sale of the Collateral will be applied to the Indebtedness as follows: (i) first to cover all of Creditor’s costs and expenses incurred in connection with exercising or enforcing its rights and remedies under this Agreement, (ii) then to accrued and unpaid interest and charges, and (iii) then to any remaining portion of the Indebtedness as Creditor may elect. Customer shall remain liable for any deficiency. Creditor may disclaim warranties of title and the like. If Creditor sells any Collateral on credit, Customer will be credited with payments made by the purchaser as and when actually received by Creditor and applied to the Indebtedness. If the purchaser fails to pay for the Collateral, Creditor may resell the Collateral and credit Customer with the proceeds as and when received and applied by Creditor. Creditor may comply with any applicable state or federal law requirements in connection with the disposition of any Collateral and compliance will not be considered to affect adversely the commercial reasonableness of such disposition. 9. Protest and all demands and notices of any action taken by Creditor under this Agreement, or in connection with any Collateral, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, are hereby waived by Customer, and any indulgence of Creditor, substitution for, exchange of or release of any person liable on the Indebtedness is hereby consented to. Customer waives notice of the increase, existence, extension or renewal of, and of any indulgence with respect to, the Indebtedness; waives presentment, demand, notice of dishonor, and protest; waives notice of the amount of the Indebtedness outstanding at any time, notice of any change in financial condition of any person liable for the Indebtedness or any part thereof, notice of any Event of Default, and all other notices respecting the Indebtedness; and agrees that maturity of the Indebtedness or any part thereof may be accelerated, extended or renewed one or more times by Creditor in its sole discretion, without notice to Customer. Customer agrees that in performing any act under this Agreement or any of the Indebtedness, time shall be of the essence and Creditor’s acceptance of partial or delinquent payments or performance, or failure or delay to exercise any right or remedy, shall not be a waiver of any obligation of Customer or right of Creditor nor constitute a waiver of any similar or dissimilar default subsequently occurring. The remedies of Creditor are cumulative, and the exercise or partial exercise of any remedy shall not be construed as a waiver of any other remedy nor constitute an election of remedy. Customer waives any right it may have to require Creditor to pursue any third party for any of the Indebtedness. 10. THIS AGREEMENT, CREDITOR’S RIGHTS HEREUNDER AND/OR ANY OF THE INDEBTEDNESS MAY BE ASSIGNED FROM TIME TO TIME BY CREDITOR, AND IN ANY SUCH CASE THE ASSIGNEE SHALL BE ENTITLED TO ALL OF THE RIGHTS, PRIVILEGES AND REMEDIES HEREIN GRANTED TO CREDITOR; AND CUSTOMER HEREBY CONSENTS TO EACH SUCH ASSIGNMENT, AGREES TO RECOGNIZE AND MAKE PAYMENTS TO EACH ASSIGNEE; AND HEREBY WAIVES AND AGREES NOT TO ASSERT AGAINST ANY ASSIGNEE ANY CLAIM OR DEFENSE IT MAY HAVE AGAINST CREDITOR OR ANY PRIOR ASSIGNEE. CUSTOMER SHALL NOT ASSIGN THIS AGREEMENT NOR ANY OF CUSTOMER’S RIGHTS OR OBLIGATIONS HEREUNDER NOR GRANT A SECURITY INTEREST IN ANY OF THE COLLATERAL; AND ANY PURPORTED ASSIGNMENT OR GRANT OF A SECURITY INTEREST IN THE COLLATERAL OR IN CUSTOMER’S INTEREST HEREUNDER SHALL BE NULL AND VOID. 11. Customer shall be in default under this Agreement upon the happening of any of the following events or conditions (each an “Event of Default”): (i) failure of Customer or any endorser, guarantor, surety, accommodation party or other person liable upon or for payment of any of the Indebtedness (each such person an “Other Liable Party”) to pay when due any indebtedness due to Creditor within the applicable cure period stated herein, or to perform punctually any other obligation, covenant, term or provision contained in or referred to in this Agreement within the applicable cure period stated herein, any note or other agreement secured hereby or any other agreement executed in connection with this Agreement; (ii) any warranty, representation or statement contained in this Agreement or made or furnished to Creditor by or on behalf of Customer, Guarantor, or any Other Liable Party is false in any respect when made or furnished; (iii) any loss, theft, substantial damage, destruction or sale of or to any of the Collateral occurs or the Collateral is subjected to any lien (other than the security interest/lien granted herein in favor of Creditor) or any levy, seizure or attachment; (iv) dissolution, termination of existence, insolvency or business failure of Customer, Guarantor or any Other Liable Party occurs, Customer, Guarantor or any Other Liable Party ceases to operate its business in the ordinary course, or a trustee, receiver or custodian of all or any part of the property of Customer, Guarantor or any Other Liable Party is appointed or an assignment is made for the benefit of the creditors of Customer, Guarantor or any Other Liable Party or any proceeding under any bankruptcy or insolvency law is commenced by or against Customer, Guarantor or any Other Liable Party; (v) any event occurs which results in the acceleration of the maturity of any indebtedness of Customer, Guarantor or any Other Liable Party in excess of $2,000,000 or which permits the holder of any such indebtedness to accelerate the maturity thereof, unless such event has been waived or cured; (vi) the Collateral becomes, in the sole judgment of Creditor, unsatisfactory or insufficient in character or value; (vii) Ballantyne Strong, Inc.

THERE ARE NO UNWRITTEN ORAL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
