|2||LOAN AND TERMS OF PAYMENT|
2.1 Promise to Pay. Borrower hereby, jointly and severally, unconditionally promises to pay Bank the outstanding principal amount of all Credit Extensions and accrued and unpaid interest thereon together with any fees and Finance Charges as and when due in accordance with this Agreement.
2.1.1 Financing of Accounts
(a) Availability. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Borrower may request that Bank finance Eligible Accounts. At all times when Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible (as hereinafter defined), Bank may, in its good faith business discretion in each instance, finance specific Eligible Accounts by extending credit to Borrower in an amount equal to the result of the Advance Rate multiplied by the face amount of the Eligible Account. At all times that Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible, Borrower may request that Bank finance Eligible Accounts on an aggregate basis. Bank shall finance Eligible Accounts on an aggregate basis by extending credit to Borrower in an amount not to exceed the result of the Advance Rate multiplied by the aggregate face amount of the Eligible Accounts (the Borrowing Base). Bank may, in its sole discretion, change the percentage of the Advance Rate for a particular Eligible Account on a case by case basis. When Bank finances an Eligible Account (an Advance), the Eligible Account becomes a Financed Receivable.
(b) Maximum Advances. At all times that Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible, the aggregate principal amount of the Advances shall not exceed the lesser of (i) Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) or (ii) the amount available under the Borrowing Base. At all times that Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible, the aggregate face amount of all Financed Receivables outstanding at any time may not exceed the Facility Amount. In addition and notwithstanding the foregoing, the aggregate amount of Advances outstanding at any time plus the principal amount outstanding under the Growth Capital Advance may not exceed Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000).
(c) Borrowing Procedure. Subject to the prior satisfaction of all other applicable conditions to the making of an Advance set forth in this Agreement, to obtain an Advance, Borrower must deliver to Bank an Invoice Transmittal executed by a Responsible Officer or his or her designee for each Eligible Account it offers, or if Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible, Borrower shall instead deliver a Borrowing Base Certificate executed by a Responsible Officer or his or her designee. Bank may rely on information set forth in or provided with each Invoice Transmittal and Borrowing Base Certificate. In addition, upon Banks request, Borrower shall deliver to Bank any contracts, purchase orders, or other underlying supporting documentation with respect to each Eligible Account.
(d) End of Borrowing Base Eligible Status. On any day that Borrower is no longer Borrowing Base Eligible all outstanding Advances must be supported by specific Eligible Accounts. Borrower shall deliver to Bank, as soon as possible, but in no event more than one (1) Business Day after Borrower is no longer Borrowing Base Eligible, an Invoice Transmittal containing detailed invoice reporting, signed by a Responsible Officer together with a current accounts receivable aging and a copy of each invoice, all in accordance with Section 6.2 hereof and subject to the terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, Section 2.1.1 hereof, each such Eligible Account financed shall thereafter be deemed to be a Financed Receivable for purposes of this Agreement. At all times that Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible, if the outstanding principal amount of the Obligations exceeds the amount of Advances available against Eligible Accounts (as determined by Bank pursuant to the terms of this Agreement), Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank the excess and, in connection with same, hereby irrevocably authorizes Bank to debit any account of Borrower maintained by Borrower with Bank or any of Banks Affiliates for the amount of such excess.
(e) Credit Quality; Confirmations. Bank may, at its option, conduct a credit check of the Account Debtor for each Account requested by Borrower for financing hereunder to approve any such Account Debtors credit before agreeing to finance such Account. Bank reserves the right to verify directly with the respective Account Debtors the validity, amount and other matters relating to the Accounts (including confirmations of Borrowers representations in Section 5.3 of this Agreement) by means of mail, telephone or otherwise, either in the name of Borrower or Bank from time to time in its sole discretion.
(f) Accounts Notification/Collection. At all times that Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible or an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Bank may notify any Account Debtor of Banks security interest in the Borrowers Accounts and verify and/or collect them.
(g) Early Termination. This Agreement may be terminated prior to the Maturity Date as follows: (i) by Borrower, effective three Business Days after written notice of termination is given to Bank; or (ii) by Bank at any time after the occurrence of an Event of Default, without notice, effective immediately. If this Agreement is terminated (A) by Bank in accordance with clause (ii) in the foregoing sentence, or (B) by Borrower for any reason, Borrower shall pay to Bank a non refundable termination fee in an amount equal to Fifteen Thousand Dollars ($15,000) (the Early Termination Fee). The Early Termination Fee shall be due and payable on the effective date of such termination and thereafter shall bear interest at a rate equal to the highest rate applicable to any of the Obligations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bank agrees to waive the Early Termination Fee if Bank closes on the refinance and re-documentation of this Agreement under another division of Bank (in its sole and exclusive discretion) prior to the Maturity Date.
(h) Maturity. All Obligations in respect of Advances outstanding hereunder shall be immediately due and payable in full on the Maturity Date.
(i) Suspension of Advances. Borrowers ability to request that Bank finance Eligible Accounts hereunder will terminate if, in Banks sole discretion, there has been a material adverse change in the general affairs, management, results of operation, condition (financial or otherwise) or the prospect of repayment of the Obligations, or there has been any material adverse deviation by Borrower from the most recent business plan of Borrower presented to and accepted by Bank prior to the Effective Date.
(j) Overadvances. If, at any time during which Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible, the outstanding principal amount of the Advances exceeds the lesser of either Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) or the
Borrowing Base, Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank in cash such excess. In addition, if the sum of aggregate amount of Advances outstanding at any time plus the principal amount outstanding under the Growth Capital Advance exceeds Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000), Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank in cash such excess.
2.1.2 Growth Capital Loan.
(a) Outstanding Balance. Bank has made a loan (the Growth Capital Advance) to Borrower under the Original Loan Agreement in the original principal amount of Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000). The outstanding principal balance of the Growth Capital Advance as of the Effective Date is One Million Seven Hundred Twenty-Two Thousand Dollars ($1,722,000). No additional advances are permitted in regard to the Growth Capital Advance.
(b) Repayment. Borrower shall continue to repay the Growth Capital Advance in accordance with the Original Loan Agreement as follows: After September 30, 2011, the Growth Capital Advance will amortize and be payable in thirty-six (36) consecutive equal monthly payments of principal in an amount equal to Fifty-Five Thousand Five Hundred Fifty-Five and 56/100 Dollars ($55,555.56) per monthly payment, plus all accrued but unpaid interest, beginning on October 1, 2011 and continuing on the first (1st) day of each month thereafter. The final payment due on the Growth Capital Maturity Date shall include all outstanding principal and all accrued unpaid interest with respect to the Growth Capital Advance.
(c) Voluntary Prepayment. Borrower shall have the option to prepay the Growth Capital Advance in full, provided Borrower (i) shall provide written notice to Bank of its election to prepay the Growth Capital Advance at least thirty (30) days prior to such prepayment and (ii) pays, on the date of such prepayment, (a) all outstanding principal and accrued but unpaid interest in respect of the Growth Capital Advance, plus (b) the Prepayment Fee, plus (c) all other sums, including Bank Expenses, if any, that shall have become due and payable.
(d) Mandatory Prepayment Upon an Acceleration. If the Growth Capital Advance is accelerated following the occurrence of an Event of Default, Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank an amount equal to the sum of (i) all outstanding principal and accrued but unpaid interest in respect of the Growth Capital Advance, plus (ii) the Prepayment Fee, plus (iii) all other sums, including Bank Expenses, if any, that shall have become due and payable.
(e) Mandatory Conversion. If, at any time, Borrowers Adjusted Quick Ratio falls below 1.00 to 1.00 (the Conversion Trigger), the outstanding principal amount of the Growth Capital Advance shall become an Advance hereunder and must be supported by specific Eligible Accounts. Borrower shall deliver to Bank, as soon as possible, but in no event more than one (1) Business Day after the Conversion Trigger occurs, an Invoice Transmittal containing detailed invoice reporting, signed by a Responsible Officer together with a current accounts receivable aging and a copy of each invoice, all in accordance with Section 6.2 hereof and subject to the terms of this Agreement, including, without limitation, Section 2.1.1 hereof, each such Eligible Account financed shall thereafter be deemed to be a Financed Receivable for purposes of this Agreement. If the outstanding principal amount of the Obligations exceeds the amount of Advances available against Eligible Accounts (as determined by Bank), Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank the excess and, in connection with same, hereby irrevocably authorizes Bank to debit any account of Borrower maintained by Borrower with Bank or any of Banks Affiliates for the amount of such excess.
(f) Interest on the Growth Capital Advance. Subject to Section 2.1.2(g), the principal amount outstanding under the Growth Capital Advance shall accrue interest at a floating per annum rate equal to one and three-quarters of one percentage points (1.75%) above the Prime Rate, which interest shall be payable monthly.
(g) Default Rate. Immediately upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Obligations under the Growth Capital Advance shall bear interest at a rate per annum which is three percentage points (3.00%) above the rate that is otherwise applicable thereto unless the Bank otherwise elects from time to time in its sole discretion to impose a smaller increase. Fees and expenses which are required to be paid by Borrower pursuant to the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, Bank Expenses) but are not paid when due shall bear interest until paid at a rate equal to the highest rate applicable to the Credit Extensions. Payment or acceptance of the increased interest rate provided in this Section 2.1.2(g) is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of Bank.
(h) Adjustment to Interest Rate. Changes to the interest rate of the Growth Capital Advance based on changes to the Prime Rate shall be effective on the effective date of any change to the Prime Rate and to the extent of any such change.
(i) Computation; 360-Day Year. In computing interest, the date of the making of any Credit Extension shall be included and the date of payment shall be excluded; provided, however, that if any Credit Extension is repaid on the same day on which it is made, such day shall be included in computing interest on such Credit Extension. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual number of days elapsed.
(j) Debit of Accounts. For each payment on the Growth Capital Advance, Bank may debit any of Borrowers deposit accounts, including the Designated Deposit Account, for principal and interest payments or any other amounts Borrower owes Bank when due. These debits shall not constitute a set-off.
(k) Interest Payment Date. Unless otherwise provided, interest is payable monthly on the first (1st) Business Day of each month.
(l) Payments; Application of Payments.
(i) All payments (including prepayments) to be made by Borrower in connection with the Growth Capital Advance under any Loan Document shall be made in immediately available funds in U.S. 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 are 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.
(ii) Borrower shall have no right to specify the order or the accounts to which Bank shall allocate or apply any payments required to be made by Borrower to Bank or otherwise received by Bank under this Agreement in connection with the Growth Capital Advance when any such allocation or application is not specified elsewhere in this Agreement.
2.2 Collections, Finance Charges, Remittances and Fees. The Obligations shall be subject to the interest, fees and Finance Charges set forth herein. Unpaid fees and Finance Charges may, in Banks discretion, accrue interest at the then highest rate applicable to the Obligations.
2.3 Collections. When Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible, Collections will be credited to Borrowers operating account (for the avoidance of doubt, all Collections shall be directed to the Lockbox in accordance with Section 2.9 below, even when Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible). When Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible, (i) Collections will be credited to the Financed Receivable Balance for such Financed Receivable and (ii) if Bank receives a payment for both a Financed Receivable and a non-Financed Receivable, the funds will first be applied to the Financed Receivable and the excess will be remitted to Borrower, subject to Section 2.9 of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Bank may apply Collections to the Obligations in any order it chooses.
2.4 Facility Fee. A fully earned, non-refundable facility fee of Fifteen Thousand Dollars ($15,000) is due upon the Effective Date (the Facility Fee).
2.5 Finance Charges. In computing Finance Charges under this Agreement when Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible, all Collections received by Bank shall be deemed applied by Bank on account of the Obligations three (3) Business Days after receipt of the Collections. When Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible, Borrower will pay a finance charge (the Finance Charge) on the Financed Receivable Balance which is equal to the Applicable Rate divided by three hundred sixty (360) multiplied by the number of days each such Financed Receivable is outstanding multiplied by the outstanding Financed Receivable Balance. At all times that Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible, Borrower will pay a Finance Charge on the unpaid principal balance of the Advances which is equal to the Applicable Rate divided by three hundred sixty (360) multiplied by the number of
days each such Advance is outstanding multiplied by the unpaid principal balance of such Advance. At all times that Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible the Finance Charge shall be payable monthly on the first day of each month. At all times that Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible, the Finance Charge is payable when the Advance made based on such Financed Receivable is repaid in accordance with Section 2.12 of this Agreement. Immediately upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Applicable Rate will increase an additional three percent (3.0%) per annum.
2.6 Collateral Handling Fee. For any Subject Month (as of the first calendar day of such Reconciliation Period), to the extent that Borrower maintained an Adjusted Quick Ratio of not less than 1.00 to 1.00 at all times during the applicable Testing Month, Borrower shall not pay any Collateral Handling Fee (as hereinafter defined). For any other Subject Month, Borrower shall pay to Bank a Collateral Handling Fee equal to one-tenth of one percent (0.10%) per Reconciliation Period of the Financed Receivable Balance for each Financed Receivable outstanding based upon a three hundred sixty (360) day year (the Collateral Handling Fee). The Collateral Handling Fee is charged on a daily basis and is equal to the Collateral Handling Fee divided by thirty (30) multiplied by the number of days each such Financed Receivable is outstanding multiplied by the outstanding Financed Receivable Balance. The Collateral Handling Fee is payable when the Advance made based on such Financed Receivable is repaid in accordance with Section 2.12 of this Agreement. In computing Collateral Handling Fees under this Agreement, all Collections received by Bank shall be deemed applied by Bank on account of Obligations three (3) Business Days after receipt of the Collections. Immediately upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Collateral Handling Fee will increase an additional 0.50%.
2.7 Accounting. After each Reconciliation Period, Bank will provide Borrower with an accounting of the transactions for that Reconciliation Period, including the amount of all Financed Receivables, all Collections, Adjustments, Finance Charges, Collateral Handling Fees and the Facility Fee. If Borrower does not object to the accounting in writing within thirty (30) days it shall be considered accurate. All Finance Charges and other interest and fees are calculated on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360) day year and actual days elapsed.
2.8 Deductions. Bank may deduct fees, Bank Expenses, Finance Charges, Collateral Handling Fees, Advances which become due pursuant to Section 2.12 of this Agreement, and other amounts due pursuant to this Agreement from any Advances made or Collections received by Bank.
2.9 Lockbox; Account Collection Services
(a) Borrower shall direct each Account Debtor (and each depository institution where proceeds of Accounts are on deposit) to remit payments with respect to the Accounts to a lockbox account established with Bank or to wire transfer payments to a cash collateral account that Bank controls (collectively, the Lockbox). It will be considered an immediate Event of Default if the Lockbox is not established and operational within thirty (30) days following the Effective Date and at all times thereafter.
(b) Until such Lockbox is established, the proceeds of the Accounts shall be paid by the Account Debtors to an address consented to by Bank. Upon receipt by Borrower of any proceeds of Accounts, Borrower shall immediately transfer and deliver same to Bank, along with a detailed cash receipts journal.
(c) During any period when Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible, provided no Event of Default exists or an event that with notice or lapse of time will be an Event of Default, Bank will promptly turn over to Borrower the proceeds of all the Accounts. During any period when Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible, provided no Event of Default exists or an event that with notice or lapse of time will be an Event of Default, within three (3) days of receipt of any proceeds of the Accounts by Bank (whether received by Bank in the Lockbox, directly from Borrower, or otherwise), Bank will turn over to Borrower such proceeds other than (i) Collections applied by Bank pursuant to Section 2.3 of this Agreement, and (ii) such proceeds which shall be used by Bank to repay any other amounts due to Bank, such as the Finance Charge, the Facility Fee, Collateral Handling Fee, and Bank Expenses; provided, however, Bank may hold any proceeds of the Accounts (whether received by Bank in the Lockbox, directly from Borrower, or otherwise and whether or not in respect of Financed Receivables) as a reserve until the end of the applicable Reconciliation Period if Bank, in its good faith business discretion, determines that other Financed Receivable(s) may no longer qualify as an Eligible Account at any time prior to the end of the subject Reconciliation Period. All monies applied to the Obligations shall be applied in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.3 above.
(d) This Section 2.9 does not impose any affirmative duty on Bank to perform any act other than as specifically set forth herein. All Accounts and the proceeds thereof are Collateral, and if an Event of Default occurs, Bank may, without notice but subject to the terms of this Agreement, apply the proceeds of such Accounts to the Obligations.
2.10 Bank Expenses. Borrower shall pay all Bank Expenses (including reasonable attorneys fees and expenses, plus expenses, for documentation and negotiation of this Agreement) incurred through and after the Effective Date, when due.
2.12 Repayment of Advances; Adjustments
2.12.1 Repayment. At all times that Borrower is not Borrowing Base Eligible, Borrower will repay each Advance on the earliest of: (a) the date on which payment is received of the Financed Receivable with respect to which the Advance was made, (b) the date on which the Financed Receivable is no longer an Eligible Account, (c) the date on which any Adjustment is asserted to the Financed Receivable (but only to the extent of the Adjustment if the Financed Receivable otherwise remains an Eligible Account), (d) the date on which there is a breach of any representation or warranty in Section 5.3 of this Agreement or of any covenant in the Loan Documents, or (e) the Maturity Date (including any early termination). Each payment will also include all accrued Finance Charges and Collateral Handling Fees with respect to such Advance and all other amounts then due and payable hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, at any time that Borrower is Borrowing Base Eligible, Borrower will repay each Advance on the earliest of: (a) the date on which there is a breach of any warranty or representation set forth in Section 5.3, (b) the Maturity Date (including any early termination), or (c) to the extent required under Section 2.1.1(d).
2.12.2 Repayment on Event of Default. When there is an Event of Default, Borrower will, if Bank demands (or, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default under Section 8.5 of this Agreement, immediately without notice or demand from Bank) repay all of the Obligations. The demand may, at Banks option, include the Advance for each Financed Receivable then outstanding and all accrued Finance Charges, the Early Termination Fee, Collateral Handling Fee, reasonable attorneys and professional fees, court costs and expenses, Bank Expenses and any other Obligations.
2.12.3 Debit of Accounts. Bank may debit any of Borrowers deposit accounts for payments or any amounts Borrower owes Bank hereunder. Bank shall promptly notify Borrower when it debits Borrowers accounts. These debits shall not constitute a set-off.
2.13 Power of Attorney. Borrower irrevocably appoints Bank and its successors and assigns as attorney-in-fact and authorizes Bank and its successor and assigns, to: (a) following the occurrence of an Event of Default, (i) sell, assign, transfer, pledge, compromise, or discharge all or any part of the Financed Receivables; (ii) demand, collect, sue, and give releases to any Account Debtor for monies due and compromise, prosecute, or defend any action, claim, case or proceeding about the Financed Receivables, including filing a claim or voting a claim in any bankruptcy case in Banks or Borrowers name, as Bank chooses; and (iii) prepare, file and sign Borrowers name on any notice, claim, assignment, demand, draft, or notice of or satisfaction of lien or mechanics lien or similar document; and (b) regardless of whether an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, (i) notify all Account Debtors to pay Bank directly; (ii) receive, open, and dispose of mail addressed to Borrower; (iii) endorse Borrowers name on checks or other instruments (to the extent necessary to pay amounts owed pursuant to any of the Loan Documents); and (iv) execute on Borrowers behalf any instruments, documents, financing statements to perfect Banks interests in the Financed Receivables and Collateral and do all acts and things necessary or prudent, as determined solely and exclusively by Bank, to protect or preserve, Banks rights and remedies under the Loan Documents, as directed by Bank.

Borrower shall deliver, within thirty (30) days following the Effective Date, a good standing certificate certified by the Secretary of State of the State of Connecticut for EOI, and a good standing certificate certified by the Secretary of State of the State of Washington for UBM.
|4||CREATION OF SECURITY INTEREST|
4.1 Grant of Security Interest. Borrower hereby grants Bank, to secure the payment and performance in full of all of the Obligations, a continuing security interest in, and pledges to Bank, the Collateral, wherever located, whether now owned or hereafter acquired or arising, and all proceeds and products thereof. Borrower represents, warrants, and covenants that the security interest granted herein shall be and shall at all times continue to be a first priority perfected security interest in the Collateral subject only to Permitted Liens. If Borrower shall at any time acquire a commercial tort claim, Borrower shall promptly notify Bank in a writing signed by Borrower of the general details thereof and grant to Bank in such writing a security interest therein and in the proceeds thereof, all upon the terms of this Agreement, with such writing to be in form and substance satisfactory to Bank.
Borrower acknowledges that it previously has entered, and/or may in the future enter, into Bank Services Agreements with Bank. Regardless of the terms of any Bank Services Agreement, Borrower agrees that any amounts Borrower owes Bank thereunder shall be deemed to be Obligations hereunder and that it is the intent of Borrower and Bank to have all such Obligations secured by the first priority perfected security interest in the Collateral granted herein (subject only to Permitted Liens that may have superior priority to Banks Lien in this Agreement).
If this Agreement is terminated, Banks Lien in the Collateral shall continue until the Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) are satisfied in full, and at such time, Bank shall, at Borrowers sole cost and expense, terminate its security interest in the Collateral and all rights therein shall revert to Borrower. In the event (a) all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations), except for Bank Services, are satisfied in full, and (b) this Agreement is terminated, Bank shall terminate the security interest granted herein upon Borrower providing cash collateral acceptable to Bank in its good faith business judgment for Bank Services, if any. In the event such Bank Services consist of outstanding Letters of Credit, Borrower shall provide to Bank cash collateral in an amount equal to 105% (110% for Letters of Credit denominated in a Foreign Currency) of the Dollar Equivalent of the face amount of all such Letters of Credit plus all interest, fees, and costs due or to become due in connection therewith (as estimated by Bank in its good faith business judgment), to secure all of the Obligations relating to such Letters of Credit.
4.2 Authorization to File Financing Statements. Borrower hereby authorizes Bank to file financing statements, without notice to Borrower, with all appropriate jurisdictions to perfect or protect Banks interest or rights hereunder. Any such financing statements may indicate the Collateral as all assets of the Debtor or words of similar effect, or as being of an equal or lesser scope, or with greater detail, all in Banks discretion.
|5||REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES|

(f) make any payments and do any acts it considers necessary or reasonable to protect its security interest in the Collateral. Borrower shall assemble the Collateral if Bank requests and make it available as Bank designates. Bank may enter premises where the Collateral is located, take and maintain possession of any part of the Collateral, and pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any Lien which appears to be prior or superior to its security interest and pay all expenses incurred. Borrower grants Bank a license to enter and occupy any of its premises, without charge, to exercise any of Banks rights or remedies;
(g) apply to the Obligations any (i) balances and deposits of Borrower it holds, or (ii) any amount held by Bank owing to or for the credit or the account of Borrower;
(h) ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, advertise for sale, and sell the Collateral. Bank is hereby granted a non-exclusive, royalty-free license or other right to use, without charge, Borrowers labels, Patents, Copyrights, mask works, rights of use of any name, trade secrets, trade names, Trademarks, and advertising matter, or any similar property as it pertains to the Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale, and selling any Collateral and, in connection with Banks exercise of its rights under this Section 9.1, Borrowers rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements inure to Banks benefit;

Virginia law governs the Loan Documents without regard to principles of conflicts of law. Borrower and Bank each submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the State and Federal courts in Virginia; provided, however, that if for any reason Bank cannot avail itself of such courts in the Commonwealth of Virginia, each Borrower accepts jurisdiction of the courts and venue in Santa Clara County, California; provided, further, that nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to operate to preclude Bank from bringing suit or taking other legal action in any other jurisdiction to realize on the Collateral or any other security for the Obligations, or to enforce a judgment or other court order in favor of Bank. Each Borrower expressly submits and consents in advance to such jurisdiction in any action or suit commenced in any such court, and each Borrower hereby waives any objection that it may have based upon lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue, or forum non conveniens and hereby consents to the granting of such legal or equitable relief as is deemed appropriate by such court. Each Borrower hereby waives personal service
of the summons, complaints, and other process issued in such action or suit and agrees that service of such summons, complaints, and other process may be made by registered or certified mail addressed to such Borrower at the address set forth in, or subsequently provided by such Borrower in accordance with, Section 10 of this Agreement and that service so made shall be deemed completed upon the earlier to occur of such Borrowers actual receipt thereof or three (3) days after deposit in the U.S. mails, proper postage prepaid.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, BORROWER AND BANK EACH WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON THIS AGREEMENT, THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY CONTEMPLATED TRANSACTION, INCLUDING CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF DUTY AND ALL OTHER CLAIMS. THIS WAIVER IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR BOTH PARTIES TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. EACH PARTY HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER WITH ITS COUNSEL.
12.1 Successors and Assigns. This Agreement binds and is for the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of each party. Borrower may not assign this Agreement or any rights or obligations under it without Banks prior written consent (which may be granted or withheld in Banks discretion).

Borrower agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Bank and its directors, officers, employees, agents, attorneys, or any other Person affiliated with or representing Bank (each, an Indemnified Person) harmless against: (a) all obligations, demands, claims, and liabilities (collectively, Claims) claimed or asserted by any other party in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents; and (b) all losses or expenses (including Bank Expenses) in any way suffered, incurred, or paid by such Indemnified Person as a result of, following from, consequential to, or arising from transactions between Bank and Borrower (including reasonable attorneys fees and expenses), except for Claims and/or losses directly caused by such Indemnified Persons gross negligence or willful misconduct.
12.3 Right of Set-Off. Borrower hereby grants to Bank, a lien, security interest and right of setoff as security for all Obligations to Bank, whether now existing or hereafter arising upon and against all deposits, credits, collateral and property, now or hereafter in the possession, custody, safekeeping or control of Bank or any entity under the control of Bank (including a Bank subsidiary) or in transit to any of them. At any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, without demand or notice, Bank may set off the same or any part thereof and apply the same to any liability or obligation of Borrower even though unmatured and regardless of the adequacy of any other collateral securing the Obligations. ANY AND ALL RIGHTS TO REQUIRE BANK TO EXERCISE ITS RIGHTS OR REMEDIES WITH RESPECT TO ANY OTHER COLLATERAL WHICH SECURES THE OBLIGATIONS, PRIOR TO EXERCISING ITS RIGHT OF SETOFF WITH RESPECT TO SUCH DEPOSITS, CREDITS OR OTHER PROPERTY OF BORROWER, ARE HEREBY KNOWINGLY, VOLUNTARILY AND IRREVOCABLY WAIVED.
12.4 Borrower Liability. Any Borrower may, acting singly, request Credit Extensions hereunder. Each Borrower hereby appoints each other as agent for itself for all purposes hereunder, including with respect to requesting Credit Extensions hereunder. Each Borrower hereunder shall be jointly and severally obligated to repay all Credit Extensions made hereunder, regardless of which Borrower actually receives said Credit Extensions, as if each Borrower hereunder directly received all Credit Extensions. Each Borrower waives (a) any suretyship defenses available to it under the Code or any other applicable law, and (b) any right to require Bank to: (i) proceed against any Borrower or any other person; (ii) proceed against or exhaust any security; or (iii) pursue any other remedy. Bank may exercise or not exercise any right or remedy it has against any Borrower or any security it holds (including the right to foreclose by judicial or non-judicial sale) without affecting any Borrowers liability.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or other related document, each Borrower irrevocably waives all rights that it may have at law or in equity (including, without limitation, any law subrogating Borrower to the rights of Bank under this Agreement) to seek contribution, indemnification or any other form of reimbursement from any other Borrower, or any other Person now or hereafter primarily or secondarily liable for
any of the Obligations, for any payment made by Borrower with respect to the Obligations in connection with this Agreement or otherwise and all rights that it might have to benefit from, or to participate in, any security for the Obligations as a result of any payment made by Borrower with respect to the Obligations in connection with this Agreement or otherwise. Any agreement providing for indemnification, reimbursement or any other arrangement prohibited under this Section 12.4 shall be null and void. If any payment is made to a Borrower in contravention of this Section 12.4, such Borrower shall hold such payment in trust for Bank and such payment shall be promptly delivered to Bank for application to the Obligations, whether matured or unmatured.

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 signed by the party against which enforcement or admission is sought. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no oral promise or statement, nor any action, inaction, delay, failure to require performance or course of conduct shall operate as, or evidence, an amendment, supplement or waiver or have any other effect on any Loan Document. Any waiver granted shall be limited to the specific circumstance expressly described in it, and shall not apply to any subsequent or other circumstance, whether similar or dissimilar, or give rise to, or evidence, any obligation or commitment to grant any further waiver. The Loan Documents represent the entire agreement about this subject matter and supersede prior negotiations or agreements. All prior agreements, understandings, representations, warranties, and negotiations between the parties about the subject matter of the Loan Documents merge into the Loan Documents.

SPECIALTY FINANCE DIVISION
I, an authorized officer of Edgar® Online, Inc.

Each Financed Receivable is an Eligible Account;
Borrower is the owner with legal right to sell, transfer, assign and encumber such Financed Receivable;
The correct amount is on the Invoice Transmittal and is not disputed;
Payment is not contingent on any obligation or contract and Borrower has fulfilled all its obligations as of the Invoice Transmittal date;
Each Financed Receivable is based on an actual sale and delivery of goods and/or services rendered, is due to Borrower, is not past due or in default, has not been previously sold, assigned, transferred, or pledged and is free of any liens, security interests and encumbrances other than Permitted Liens;
There are no defenses, offsets, counterclaims or agreements for which the Account Debtor may claim any deduction or discount;
Borrower reasonably believes no Account Debtor is insolvent or subject to any Insolvency Proceedings;
Borrower has not filed or had filed against it Insolvency Proceedings and does not anticipate any filing;
Bank has the right to endorse and/ or require Borrower to endorse all payments received on Financed Receivables and all proceeds of Collateral; and
No representation, warranty or other statement of Borrower in any certificate or written statement given to Bank contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact necessary to make the statement contained in the certificates or statement not misleading.
Additionally, Borrower represents and warrants as follows:
Borrower and each Subsidiary is duly existing and in good standing in its state of formation and qualified and licensed to do business in, and in good standing in, any state in which the conduct of its business or its ownership of property requires that it be qualified except where the failure to do so could not reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Change. The execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents have been duly authorized, and do not conflict with Borrowers organizational documents, nor constitute an event of default under any material agreement by which Borrower is bound. Borrower is not in default under any agreement to which or by which it is bound in which the default could reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Change.
Borrower has good title to the Collateral, free of Liens except Permitted Liens. All inventory is in all material respects of good and marketable quality, free from material defects.
Borrower is not an investment company or a company controlled by an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. Neither Borrower nor any of its Subsidiaries is a holding company or an affiliate of a holding company or a subsidiary company of a holding company as each term is defined and used in the Public Utility Holding Company Act of 2005. Borrower is not engaged as one of its important activities in extending credit for margin stock (under Regulations X, T and U of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors). Borrower has complied in all material respects with the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. Borrower has not violated any laws, ordinances or rules, the violation of which could reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Change. None of Borrowers or any Subsidiarys properties or assets has been used by Borrower or any Subsidiary or, to the best of Borrowers knowledge, by previous Persons, in disposing, producing, storing, treating, or transporting any hazardous substance other than legally. Borrower and each Subsidiary has timely filed all required tax returns and paid, or made adequate provision to pay, all material taxes, except those being contested in good faith with adequate reserves under GAAP. Borrower and each Subsidiary has obtained all consents, approvals and authorizations of, made all declarations or filings with, and given all notices to, all government authorities that are necessary to continue its business as currently conducted except where the failure to obtain or make such consents, declarations, notices or filings would not reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Change.
