2.LOAN COMMITMENT; USE OF PROCEEDS
(b)Determination of Advance Amounts as to Long Creek Phases. Lender hereby agrees, if Borrower has Performed all of the Obligations then due (no Event of Default or Incipient Default exists), to make Advances to Borrower against Long Creek Phases in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement for the purposes specified in Section 2.3. A total of no more than 5 Advances shall be made against Long Creek Phases, with the first of up to 4 Advances being characterized as Pre-Advances and the last Advance being characterized as the End of Construction Advance. Following the making of the first Pre-Advance, subsequent Pre-Advances and the End of Construction Advance shall be made no more frequently than 75 days following the making of the immediately previous such Advance and Borrower shall satisfy all conditions precedent to the making of the End of Construction Advance within 24 months following the making of the first Pre-Advance or the End of Construction Advance shall not occur. In addition to satisfying all other conditions to the making of an Advance, as contained herein, the making of the End of Construction Advance is subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Sections 4.1(e)(v), 4.1(l), and 4.1(m) hereof as to the Encumbered Timeshare Product. With respect to any portion of the Long Creek Phases that have been sold and deeded to Purchasers prior to the recording of Mortgage (and thus not subject to the lien of the Mortgage), the first Pre-Advance shall be reduced by the amount of the Release Payment that would have been payable to Lender as a result of such sale had the subject item of Timeshare Inventory been under the lien of the Mortgage at the time of such sale.
Pre-Advance. The maximum amount of each Pre-Advance shall equal 58% of the Inventory Costs incurred through the date of such Pre-Advance less the sum of all previous Pre-Advances (with Inventory Costs, for purposes of this Section 2.1(b)(i), determined through the delivery of AIA Document G702 and/or AIA Document G703 and/or such other documentation as Lender may request). However, notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall a Pre-Advance (A) cause the unpaid principal balance of the Loan to exceed the Maximum Loan Amount, (B) cause the aggregate amount of all Advances made at any time under the Loan to exceed $25,000,000, or (C) cause the unpaid principal balance of the Loan to exceed 75% of the appraised value, as reflected in the appraisals delivered to Lender pursuant to Sections 4.1(j) and 6.1(q) hereof, as applicable, unless Borrower makes a principal payment under the Loan by the amount necessary to bring the unpaid principal balance of the Loan within the limitations set forth in clauses (A) through (C) above, within 10 days following written notice that a limitation has been exceeded. Such written notice may be given by electronic mail.
End of Construction Advance. The maximum amount of the End of Construction Advance shall not be greater than 15.7% of the Retail Value of the total Vacation Points attributable to Units at Long Creek Phases (prior to the commencement of sales), less the total aggregate Advances (whether repaid or still outstanding) made between the Effective Date and the date of such End of Construction Advance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall the End of Construction Advance (W) cause the unpaid principal balance of the Loan to exceed the Maximum Loan Amount, (X) cause the aggregate amount
of all Advances made at any time under the Loan to exceed $25,000,000, (Y) cause the unpaid principal balance of the Loan to exceed 75% of the appraised value of the Encumbered Timeshare Product, as reflected in the appraisals delivered to Lender pursuant to Sections 4.1(j) and 6.1(q) hereof, as applicable, or (Z) cause the unpaid principal balance of the Loan to exceed 58% of the Inventory Costs incurred through the date of the End of Construction Advance.
Formula Balance. If at any time the limitations set forth in clauses 2.1(b)(i)(A), 2.1(b)(i)(B), 2.1(b)(ii)(W) or 2.1(b)(ii)(X) are exceeded, then within 5 Business Days thereafter, Borrower will make a principal payment to Lender in an amount equal to such overage. If at any time the limitations set forth in clauses 2.1(b)(i)(C), 2.1(b)(ii)(Y) or 2.1(b)(ii)(Z) above are exceeded, then within 20 days thereafter, Borrower will at its sole option either (A) make a principal payment to Lender or (B) pledge to Lender completed Timeshare Inventory from the Timeshare Project (the "Additional Timeshare Inventory") (or any combination of the alternatives contained in clauses (A) or (B) above) so that after such payment or pledge, the relevant limitation is not exceeded; provided that, in the case of pledging Additional Timeshare Inventory to Lender, (i) the Mortgage is amended to include such Additional Timeshare Inventory within the scope of the lien created thereunder, (ii) the Title Policy is endorsed to include as a part of Schedule A thereof such Additional Timeshare Inventory, subject only to the Permitted Encumbrances, at the sole cost and expense of Borrower, under a form of endorsement reasonably acceptable to Lender and (iii) the conditions contained in Sections 4.1(l) and (m) are satisfied with respect to such Additional Timeshare Inventory.
(c)Revolving Nature of Loan. The Loan is a revolving line of credit; however, all Advances shall be viewed as a single loan. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Borrower shall not be entitled to obtain Advances after the expiration of the Borrowing Term unless Lender, in its discretion, agrees in writing with Borrower to make Advances thereafter on terms and conditions satisfactory to Lender. No more than one Advance will be made in any calendar month.
(d)Maximum Aggregate Loan Amount. In no event shall (i) the combined unpaid principal balance of the Loan and the Receivables Loan exceed the Maximum Combined Loan Amount, (ii) the unpaid principal balance of the Loan exceed the Maximum Loan Amount, or (iii) the aggregate amount of all Advances made at any time under the Loan to exceed $25,000,000. If at any time, any of the foregoing limitations are exceeded, then within 5 Business Days thereafter, Borrower will make a principal payment to Lender in an amount equal to such overage.
2.2Continuation of Obligations Throughout Term. This Agreement and Borrower's liability for Performance of the Obligations shall continue until the end of the Term.
2.3Use of Advance. Borrower will use the proceeds of the Loan only for working capital, sales, marketing and other proper business purposes as it shall determine.
2.4Repayment of Loan. The Loan shall be evidenced by the Note and shall be repaid in immediately available funds according to the terms of the Note and this Agreement.
2.5Interest. Except as otherwise provided in the Note or this Agreement, interest ("Basic Interest") shall accrue on the unpaid principal balance of the Loan from time to time outstanding at the Basic Interest Rate. Basic Interest is computed on a 365/360 basis; that is, by applying the ratio of the annual interest rate over a year of 360 days, multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days during the calendar month that the principal balance is outstanding. Interest shall accrue on funds as of the date Lender wires such funds to Borrower or to any escrow agent handling disbursement of the Advance. Payments of principal and any other amounts due and payable under the Loan Documents (other than Basic Interest) shall accrue interest at the Default Rate after the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that the Default Rate is reasonable in light of the increased risk of collection after the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default.
(a)Borrower agrees punctually to pay or cause to be paid to Lender all principal and interest due under this Agreement and the Note, respectively, with respect to the Loan. All payments of principal, interest and fees on the Loan shall be made to Lender by federal funds wire transfer as instructed by Lender in immediately available funds. If any payment of principal, interest or fees to be made by Borrower becomes due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment will be due on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time will be included in computing any interest with respect to such payment.
(b)If any installment of interest and/or the payment of principal is not received by Lender within 10 days after the due date thereof, then in addition to the remedies conferred upon Lender pursuant to Section 7.2 hereof and the other Loan Documents, Lender may elect to assess a late charge of 5% of the amount of the installment due and unpaid, which late charge will be added to the delinquent amount to compensate Lender for the expense of handling the delinquency; provided, however, no late charge shall be imposed upon a payment to repay the Loan upon the Maturity Date or upon acceleration of the Loan. Borrower and Lender agree that such late charge represents a good faith and fair and reasonable estimate of the probable cost to Lender of such delinquency. Borrower acknowledges that during the time that any such amount is in default, Lender will incur losses which are impracticable, costly and inconvenient to ascertain and that such late charge represents a reasonable sum considering all of the circumstances existing on the date of the execution of this Agreement and represents a reasonable estimate of the losses Lender will incur by reason of late payment. Borrower further agrees that proof of actual losses would be costly, inconvenient, impracticable and extremely difficult to fix. Acceptance of such late charge will not constitute a waiver of the default with respect to the overdue installment, and will not prevent Lender
from exercising any of the other rights and remedies available hereunder. Borrower will pay a fee to Lender of $25.00 if Borrower makes a payment on the Loan and the check or preauthorized charge with which Borrower pays is later dishonored.
2.7Minimum Required Payments. Borrower shall make the following payments on the Loan:
(a)Interest Payments. On the Monthly Payment Date beginning October 2017, a monthly payment of interest only shall be due and payable, at the Basic Interest Rate, on the aggregate outstanding principal balance of the Loan in an amount equal to interest which accrued during the immediately preceding calendar month.
(c)Release Process. In connection with each closing of a sale of an item of Timeshare Inventory that is encumbered under the lien of the Mortgage ("Closing Timeshare"), Borrower shall pay to Lender an amount calculated in respect of each Closing Timeshare, until the earlier of the Maturity Date or until the Loan is paid in full (as to each Closing Timeshare, such amount is called the "Release Payment" and as to all Closing Timeshares, the aggregate of such amounts is called the "Release Payments").
The Release Payment per Closing Timeshare shall be an amount equal to the greater of (a) the then Release Percentage multiplied by the sales price of such Closing Timeshare or (b) an amount, calculated from time to time by Lender in good faith, as may be necessary to cause $25,000,000 (less cumulative repayments at the time of calculation) to be fully paid upon the initial closing on sales of 75% of the total amount of unsold Timeshare Inventory in respect of which Advances are available for borrowing.
On or before the Monthly Payment Date subsequent to the month in which the sale of a Closing Timeshare occurs, Borrower shall deliver, or cause to be delivered, to Lender the required Release Payment for such Closing Timeshare. Upon the payment of the required Release Payment, Lender shall credit the Release Payment as provided in Section 2.10. Borrower acknowledges that Lender shall have no obligation to execute or deliver or authorize the recording of any partial release of the Mortgage related to a Closing Timeshare prior to Lender's receipt of the Release Payment for such Closing Timeshare in good collected funds in U.S. dollars. In connection with the sale of a Closing Timeshare to a Purchaser, Lender agrees to execute and deliver to Borrower the partial release referenced below, pursuant to which the security interest in such Closing Timeshare created by the Mortgage will be released if, and only if, all of the following conditions have been satisfied:
The full Release Payment in respect of such Closing Timeshare shall have been paid to and received by Lender in good and collected funds; and
A partial release of Mortgage, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit F shall have been completed by Borrower and submitted to Lender with the aforesaid
request, and Lender or Lender's attorneys, shall have reasonably approved the form of legal description to be included in such partial release.
Borrower shall bear the responsibility of recording any and all documents executed and delivered pursuant to this section. Borrower shall also pay all escrow costs and recording and transfer costs in respect to such documents.
At the time of closing of each Closing Timeshare, the Release Payment related to such Closing Timeshare may be paid by way of an offset against an advance, if any, made under the Receivables Loan in connection with such closing, and applied by Lender against the Loan as provided in Section 2.10, it being agreed, however, that Release Payments per Closing Timeshare are due to Lender in accordance with Section 2.7(c)(ii) regardless of whether an advance of the Receivables Loan is made in connection with such closing.
In addition to the adjustment to the Release Payment contemplated by clause (i) above, the Release Payment shall be adjusted following receipt of the appraisal contemplated in Section 6.1(q) as more fully provided in that section.
(d)Minimal Principal Reductions. Borrower shall make the following minimum cumulative quarterly amortization payments (the "Minimum Quarterly Payments") during the following quarterly time periods commencing at the end of the Borrowing Term (with Release Payments paid by Borrower on or prior to such Quarterly Payment Date to be taken into account in determining whether or not Borrower has satisfied the required Minimum Quarterly Payments). The Minimum Quarterly Payments per quarterly time period shall equal the following percentage of the unpaid principal balance of the Loan at the end of the Borrowing Term:
Quarterly Payment Date
Minimum Cumulative Quarterly Payments
The date that is 3 months after the end of the Borrowing Term
The date that is 6 months after the end of the Borrowing Term
The date that is 9 months after the end of the Borrowing Term
The date that is 12 months after the end of the Borrowing Term
The date that is 15 months after the end of the Borrowing Term
The date that is 18 months after the end of the Borrowing Term
The date that is 21 months after the end of the Borrowing Term
In the event at the end of any quarterly time period (i.e. the Quarterly Payment Date), the required Minimum Quarterly Payment has not occurred, Borrower shall pay any shortfall to Lender within 20 days thereafter, other than the payment due on the Maturity Date which shall be due on that date, with no 20-day extension. All such payments of principal will be applied by Lender as provided in Section 2.10.
(e)Release Price Maximum. If at any time the Release Percentage exceeds 21% of the Retail Value, then within 20 days thereafter, Borrower will at its sole option either (a) make to Lender a principal payment or (b) pledge to Lender Additional Timeshare Inventory (under the conditions set forth in Section 2.1(b)(iii) hereof) (or any combination of the alternatives contained in clauses (i) or (ii) above) so that after such payment or pledge, the Release Percentage is equal to or less than 21% of the Retail Value.
(f)Final Payment. The entire outstanding principal amount of the Loan, together with all other monetary Obligations due in respect of the Loan, shall be paid in full by not later than the earliest of: (i) the Maturity Date or (ii) the occurrence of an Event of Default (and Lender's election to accelerate the Loan). Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Borrower prepays the Receivables Loan in full with the proceeds of a Securitization, the Loan is payable in full within 120 days following such prepayment unless the Receivables Loan balance equals or exceeds $2,500,000 on the day which occurs 120 days following such prepayment of the Receivables Loan. In the event that Borrower prepays the Receivables Loan in full with cash derived from sources other than a Securitization, the Inventory Loan is payable in full concurrently with the prepayment in full of the Receivables Loan.
2.8Prepayment. Borrower may prepay the Loan, in full or in part, at any time, without any prepayment premium or penalty.
2.9Loan Fee and Amendment Fee.
Loan Fee A fee of one and one-half percent (1.5%) on the amount of each Pre-Advance and the End of Construction Advance, not to exceed $75,000 in the aggregate, shall be paid to Lender by Borrower (cumulatively, the "Loan Fee"), concurrently with each such Advance and which may be withheld from the proceeds of such Advance. On September 30, 2017, the positive difference, if any, between $75,000 and the Loan Fee paid by Borrower in connection with Pre-Advances and the End of Construction Advance, shall be due and payable to Lender. In no event shall the total Loan Fee with respect to Pre-Advances and the End of Construction Advance exceed $75,000. The Loan Fee was fully earned as of the Effective Date in consideration for Lender's agreement to fund Advances in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. Regardless of whether Borrower repays or is required to repay the Loan prior to the end of the Maturity Date, Borrower will not be entitled to any refund of the Loan Fee.
Amendment Fee A fee in the amount of $56,250 (the "Amendment Fee") shall be paid to Lender by Borrower at the time of the first Pre-Advance, but in no event later than September 30, 2017, in consideration of Lender's agreement to modify the Loan and extend the Borrowing Term, and such Amendment Fee may be withheld from the proceeds of an Advance. The Amendment Fee was fully earned as of the Effective Date in consideration for Lender's agreements contained herein. Regardless of whether Borrower repays or is required to repay the Loan prior to the end of the Maturity Date, Borrower will not be entitled to any refund of the Amendment Fee.
2.10Application of Proceeds of Collateral and Payments. Notwithstanding anything in the Loan Documents to the contrary, the amount of all payments or amounts received by Lender with respect to the Loan shall be applied in the following order of priority: (a) to any past due payments of interest on the Loan and to accrued interest on the Loan through the date of such payment, including any interest at the Default Rate; (b) to any late fees, examination fees and expenses, collection fees and expenses and any other fees and expenses due to Lender under the Loan Documents in connection with the Loan; and (c) to the unpaid principal balance of the Loan. In calculating interest and applying payments as set forth above: (i) interest on the Loan shall be calculated and collected through the date payment is actually received by Lender; (ii) interest on the outstanding balance of the Loan shall be charged during any grace period permitted under the Loan Documents; (iii) at the end of each month, at the reasonable discretion of Lender, all past due interest and other past due charges provided for under the Loan Documents with respect to the Loan shall be added to the principal balance of the Loan; and (iv) to the extent that Borrower makes a payment or Lender receives any payment or proceeds of the Collateral for Borrower's benefit that is subsequently invalidated, set aside or required to be repaid to any other Person, then, to such extent, the Obligations in connection with the Loan shall be revived and continue as if such payment or proceeds had not been received by Lender and Lender may adjust the Loan balance as Lender, in its discretion, deems appropriate as indicated under the circumstances. The provisions of this Section 2.10 are also subject to the parties' rights and obligations under the Loan Documents as to the application of proceeds of the Collateral following an Event of Default.
2.12Non-Use Fee. If during any calendar month between the period beginning one year after the Effective Date (as defined in the Receivables Loan Agreement) and ending on the last day of the calendar month in which the Borrowing Term (as defined in the Receivables Loan Agreement) expires, the highest combined unpaid principal balance of the Loan and the Receivables Loan during such calendar month is at any time less than $30,000,000, then within five Business Days following the end of any such calendar month, Borrower shall pay to Lender a non-use fee (the "Non-Use Fee") of one-half percent (.5%) per annum on the difference between $30,000,000 and the largest combined unpaid principal balance during such calendar month then ended under the Loan and the Receivables Loan. However, in the event the combined unpaid principal balance of this Loan and the Receivables Loan is equal to or greater than $30,000,000 during such calendar month, then no Non‑Use Fee shall be due and payable (the foregoing covenant, the “Non-Use Fee Covenant”). The Non-Use Fee under this Agreement is the same Non-Use Fee payable under the Receivables Loan and only one Non-Use Fee is payable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event Borrower prepays the Receivables Loan, in full or in part, from the proceeds of a Securitization, the Non-Use Fee Covenant will be suspended from the period commencing on the calendar month in which such prepayment occurs and ending on the calendar month 12 months thereafter. After the expiration of such 12-month period, the Non-Use Fee Covenant shall resume.
2.13Release of Mortgage. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, upon expiration of the Borrowing Term (or such earlier date provided Borrower waives its rights to any further Advance) and payment in full of all amounts owed under this Agreement (other than obligations intended to survive the repayment of the Inventory Note and amounts relating to the Receivables Loan) and provided that there does not then exist an Event of Default or an Incipient Default that matures into an Event of Default, Lender shall promptly release the lien of the Mortgage and shall terminate all financing statements and other documents or instruments relating to the Collateral and take such other actions as may be necessary to release any such Collateral from Lender's lien at the sole cost and expense of Borrower. Such release shall not, however, extend to any collateral pledged by Borrower to Lender pursuant to the Receivables Loan Agreement or other Receivables Loan Documents (other than "Additional Collateral" (as defined in the Receivables Loan Agreement)).
2.14Inventory Loan Reductions. Commencing on January 1, 2018, Borrower shall have the option to make one or more Inventory Loan Reductions by delivering a fully executed Inventory Loan Reduction Notice, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit J (together with all schedules and attachments thereto, each an "Inventory Loan Reduction Notice") to Lender; provided, however, that (i) Borrower is not permitted to deliver an Inventory Loan Reduction Notice more often than once every six (6) months; (ii) Borrower is not permitted to deliver an Inventory Loan Reduction Notice if there then exists an Event of Default or an Incipient Default that matures into an Event of Default under this Agreement or the Receivables Loan Agreement; and (iii) the minimum amount of each Inventory Loan Reduction shall be $5,000,000. In the event Borrower desires to increase the Maximum Loan Amount (as defined in the Receivables Loan Agreement) by the amount of the Subsequent Increase, Borrower shall so indicate that desire in the Inventory Loan Reduction Notice by completing the appropriate blanks in the Inventory Loan Reduction Notice. To be effective, the Inventory Loan Reduction Notice must be delivered to Lender in writing at the address set forth herein for notices. Unless otherwise agreed to by Lender in writing (a) the reduction in the Maximum Loan Amount of the Loan in the amount of the Inventory Loan Reduction and (b) if applicable, the corresponding increase in the Maximum Loan Amount (as defined in the Receivables Loan Agreement) of the Receivables Loan in the amount of the Subsequent Increase, shall be deemed to automatically take effect on the date that is ten (10) business days after Lender's receipt of such Inventory Loan Reduction Notice and a fully executed Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 in the forms attached to the Inventory Loan Reduction Notice.
3.1Maintenance of Security. Borrower will maintain or cause to be maintained in full force and effect throughout the Term (except as otherwise expressly provided in such Loan Document), as security for the Performance of the Obligations, the Security Documents and all other security required to be given to Lender pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
3.2Liability of Guarantor. The payment and Performance of the Obligations shall be jointly, severally, primarily and unconditionally guaranteed by Guarantor as set forth in the Guaranty.
3.3Cross-Collateralization. The Loan and the Obligations hereunder and under any Loan Documents, shall (in addition to the Collateral) be further secured and cross‑collateralized by any properties, interests or assets of Borrower, real, personal or mixed, tangible or intangible, in which Lender is granted lien or mortgage rights or security interests at any time under the Receivables Loan Documents or with respect to the Receivables Loan (such properties, interests or assets in which Lender may hold lien rights or security interests from time to time are called the "Additional Collateral"). For value received, Borrower hereby grants to Lender a security interest in and to the Additional Collateral to secure the timely payment and performance of the Obligations; and Borrower agrees to deliver to Lender financing statements and other documents as may be reasonably required by Lender from time to time to further evidence and perfect Lender's liens and security interests in the Additional Collateral.
4.CONDITIONS PRECEDENT TO ADVANCE; METHOD OF DISBURSEMENT

If it is unlawful for Borrower to pay such Impositions, Borrower shall not be required to pay such Impositions; but Lender may demand payment of such additional amount as is necessary to maintain Lender's yields on the Loan in either a single payment or at Lender's option, in installment payments, and Borrower will pay such amount upon demand. If Lender has not received evidence satisfactory to it from Borrower that such Impositions have been paid by Borrower within 5 Business Days after demand was made upon Borrower to make such payment, Lender may, at its option, pay the same, and Borrower shall immediately reimburse Lender for such sums so expended, together with interest at the Default Rate. If Borrower pays any such Impositions and Lender subsequently receives a refund or reimbursement of such amounts, Lender shall promptly deliver such refund or reimbursement (without interest) to Borrower provided no Incipient Default or Event of Default exists.

(j)Material Increases to Assessments. Borrower (i) will use its best efforts to cause the Timeshare Association to (A) discharge its obligations under the applicable Timeshare Program Governing Documents and (B) maintain a reasonable reserve for capital improvements to the Timeshare Project. Borrower will pay the maintenance fees and assessments on its unsold Timeshare Inventory when due.
(k)Maintenance of Timeshare Project and Other Property. Borrower will maintain or cause to be maintained in good condition and repair all common areas in the Timeshare Project and other on-site amenities which have been promised or represented as being available to Purchasers and, to the extent owned by Borrower or a Direct Affiliate of Borrower, all portions of improvements in which Units are located and are not part of the Timeshare Project. Borrower will maintain or cause the Timeshare Association to maintain a reasonable reserve to assure compliance with the terms of the foregoing sentence.
(l)Maintenance of Larger Tract. To the extent that the Timeshare Project is either (i) part of a larger common ownership regime or planned development or (ii) parts of buildings in which Units are located are not part of the Timeshare Project, Borrower will pay its commercially reasonable share of common expenses to be allocated to the Timeshare Project. Borrower will use commercially reasonable efforts to cause all such property which is not part of the Timeshare Project to be professionally managed in a first class manner substantially similar to the manner in which the Timeshare Project is managed.

(n)Exchange Affiliation. Borrower shall provide Lender with evidence that the Timeshare Project has been designated as an Interval International Premier Resort as of the Effective Date.
(o)Right to Inspect. Borrower will permit Lender and its representatives and consultants at all reasonable times to inspect the Timeshare Project and to inspect and audit Borrower's books, records, operations and sales and copy Borrower's books and records, on an annual basis (or on a more frequent basis during the continuance of an Event of Default). In connection with such audits and inspections, Borrower shall supply to Lender any documents, bank statements or other records within the custody or control of Borrower as is reasonably requested by Lender. All such audits and inspections shall be performed at Borrower's expense, which shall include reimbursement of all reasonable travel and transportation, lodging and food expenses incurred in connection therewith. In addition, Lender acknowledges that the information produced by Borrower in response to any such inspection or audit contains information which Borrower and Lender deem "confidential," "proprietary" and "secret". Lender shall hold and, shall at all times ensure that it and its Affiliates, including, without limitation, its employees, agents, representatives and consultants, hold in confidence all such information, and will prevent (a) the disclosure by it or its Affiliates, including, without limitation, its employees, agents, representatives and consultants, to other Persons of any proprietary, confidential or secret information of Borrower or Purchasers or (b) the use of such information other than for the purposes set forth in this subsection 6.1(o), unless authorized to do so in writing by the Borrower.
(p)Management and Marketing. At all times during the Term, the Timeshare Manager shall have substantial experience and expertise in the hospitality industry and with respect to timeshare operations of a type and quality substantially similar to the Timeshare Project and shall be a Person reasonably acceptable to Lender (notwithstanding the fact that the Timeshare Association may be responsible for the management of the Timeshare Project). At all times during the Term, the Vacation Club Manager shall have substantial experience and expertise in the hospitality industry, with respect to an operation substantially similar to the Vacation Club. Lender approves Bluegreen Resorts Management, Inc. as the Timeshare Manager for the Timeshare Project and as the Vacation Club Manager.
(q)Additional Appraisal. At the end of the Borrowing Term, Borrower shall obtain a new appraisal of the then Encumbered Timeshare Product from an appraiser selected by Lender and in form and content and with an effective date satisfactory to Lender reflecting the valuation of the Encumbered Timeshare Product. Such appraisal shall comply with all federal and state standards for appraisals and otherwise shall be satisfactory to Lender in all material respects. Borrower agrees to pay the costs and expenses for all appraisals and reviews thereof as ordered by Lender pursuant to this paragraph. The Release Payment shall thereafter be adjusted so that the Loan is paid in full upon the sale of 75% of the then remaining Encumbered Timeshare Product. However, as more fully set forth in Section 2.7(e) hereof, in no event shall any adjustment to the Release Payment result in the Release Percentage exceeding 21% of the Retail Value.
(r)Liquidity. During the period of time commencing on the date of the first Pre-Advance through the obtaining of certificates of
conformance from Taney County, Missouri with respect to the Long Creek Phases, Borrower shall maintain $7,500,000 of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents as demonstrated by Borrower's quarterly and annual financial statements.
(s)Minimum Number of Vacation Points for Long Creek Phases. Borrower covenants that there shall be not less than 95,000,000 Vacation Points attributable to Units at Long Creek Phases.
(t)Mortgage Lien on Long Creek Phase 3a/3b
(i) Under the provisions of the Missouri Condominium Act (the “Act”), a condominium unit cannot be legally created unless all structural components and mechanical systems of all buildings comprising the condominium units have been substantially completed, as evidenced by a recorded certificate of conformance. Borrower has advised Lender that, as of the Effective Date, Long Creek Phase 3a/3b has been dedicated to the Timeshare Declaration. However inasmuch as all structural components and mechanical systems of all buildings comprising Long Creek Phase 3a/3b have not yet been substantially completed, a certificate of conformance for Long Creek Phase 3a/3b cannot yet be recorded. As a result, Long Creek Phase 3a/3b is presently characterized as Common Elements which cannot be separately mortgaged in favor of Lender without a concurrent mortgage lien on the condominium unit to which such Common Elements are allocated. The Act permits the developer of a condominium to reserve to itself, in the condominium declaration, certain special declarant rights and development rights. Such special declarant rights and development rights have been reserved in favor of the Borrower in the Timeshare Declaration and Borrower has collaterally assigned such special declarant rights and development rights to Lender pursuant to the Mortgage. Such special declarant rights and development rights, as set forth in Timeshare Declaration, give the Borrower (as declarant), among other rights, the right (after receiving a certificate of conformance with respect thereto) to create condominium units and the right to create timeshare interests, out of the Common Elements, by the recording of an amendment to the Timeshare Declaration. Under the provisions of the Act, any condominium units that are created out of the Common Elements through the exercise by Borrower of its reserved special declarant rights and development rights are owned by the Borrower in fee simple, free and clear of the rights other owners.
(ii) Borrower intends to create 46 additional Units (as Long Creek Phase 3a/3b) at such time as all structural components and mechanical systems of the applicable portions of the buildings which contain Long Creek Phase 3a/3b have been substantially completed to a point where a certificate of conformance for such Units which have been completed in Long Creek Phase 3a/3b can be recorded. At such time as such substantial completion has occurred as to such Units, Borrower shall give Lender prompt written notice to that effect and shall thereafter, at Borrower’s sole cost and expense, promptly (a) obtain and record a certificate of conformance for the portions of such buildings, (b) record an amendment to the Timeshare Declaration (in a form reasonably satisfactory to Lender), creating additional
Units which have been completed and for which a certificate of conformance has been recorded (which shall comprise portions of Long Creek Phase 3a/3b) from what was previously Common Elements, (c) cooperate with Lender in the execution and recording of an amendment to the Mortgage, encumbering such new Units in favor of Lender, as mortgagee, to secure the full and prompt payment and Performance of the Obligations, subject solely to the Permitted Encumbrances and any other matters approved in writing by Lender in its discretion and (d) obtain for the benefit of Lender, a modification endorsement to Title Policy, insuring such mortgage amendment as an additional “insured instrument”, adding such additional Units as part of the “insured estate”, updating the “date of policy” to the recording of such mortgage amendment and confirming that such mortgage amendment is subject to no matters other than the Permitted Encumbrances and any other matters approved by Lender in its discretion. To the fullest extent permitted by law, simultaneous with the recording of the certificate of conformance for such Units in Long Creek Phase 3a/3b and a modification of the Timeshare Declaration to remove the same as Common Elements and convert the same to Units, the Mortgage shall be deemed to spread upon and encumber such Units.
(a)Change in Borrower's Name, Principal Place of Business, Jurisdiction of Organization or Business. Borrower will not change its name or jurisdiction of organization or move its principal place of business or chief executive office except upon not less than 60 days' prior written notice to Lender. Borrower's sole business shall be the development, construction, ownership, management and sale of Timeshare Inventory in the Timeshare Project, and in such other timeshare projects as it may develop, construct, own, manage and sell from time to time, or as may otherwise be contemplated by the Borrower’s limited liability company agreement.
(b)Restrictions on Additional Indebtedness. Subject to the additional restrictions set forth in Section 6.2(c) below, Borrower will not incur any additional Indebtedness, including any liability under any capitalized lease or any liability as a guarantor or other contingent liability, except for the following: any (a) unsecured Indebtedness or any other unsecured indebtedness, (b) secured indebtedness relating to the Timeshare Project, provided that an intercreditor agreement reasonably acceptable to Lender is executed by the Person providing such secured indebtedness containing customary provisions including, for example, notice and cure rights, and agreements providing nondisturbance and quiet enjoyment rights to owners of Timeshare Inventory, and (c) secured indebtedness, including capitalized leases, not collateralized by the Timeshare Project.
(c)Ownership and Control. Without the prior written consent of Lender, Borrower will not: (i) sell, convey, lease, pledge, hypothecate, encumber or otherwise transfer Collateral, other than in accordance with and as permitted by the terms of this Agreement; (ii) permit or suffer to exist any liens, security interests or other encumbrances on the Collateral, except for the Permitted Encumbrances and liens and security
interests expressly granted to Lender; (iii) permit the sale, conveyance, lease, transfer or disposition of the Timeshare Project, other than the sale of Timeshare Inventory in arms-length transactions in Borrower's ordinary course of business; (iv) permit or suffer to exist any change in (A) the legal or beneficial ownership of Borrower or any Person controlling Borrower (whether directly or indirectly through one or more intermediaries) that results in Bluegreen owning, directly or indirectly, less than 51% of the ownership interest in Borrower or which results in Big Cedar, L.L.C. owning, directly or indirectly, less than 25% of the ownership interest in Borrower unless such ownership interest is then held by Bluegreen or (B) any change in the power to manage or control Borrower or any Person controlling Borrower (whether directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries); (v) cease operation, liquidate or dissolve; or (vi) merge or consolidate with or into another Person, unless the Borrower is the surviving Person.
(d)Making Loans. Other than the providing of purchase money financing to Purchasers of Timeshare Inventory, commission advances to sales associates in the ordinary course of business and other than loans to a member of Borrower or Guarantor which are subject to the Subordination Agreement, Borrower shall not loan funds to any Person.
(e)Negative Pledge. Until such time as all of the payment Obligations of the Borrower have been Performed in full, Borrower agrees not to pledge, encumber or assign (either collaterally or outright) (or permit such pledge, encumbrance or assignment) to any Person or grant to any Person (or permit the granting to any Person) of a lien on or a security interest in (i) any developer or declarant's rights under the Timeshare Declaration other than in favor of Lender (unless an intercreditor agreement, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Lender and such other lender, is executed, addressing such developer or declarant's rights), (ii) any contracts, licenses, permits, plans or other intangibles used in connection with the Timeshare Project, the marketing and sale of Timeshare Inventory and/or the management and/or operations of the Timeshare Project, (iii) the Reservation System (except that a non-exclusive license to use the Reservation System granted to any Person, including Lender, shall not be deemed a pledge, encumbrance or assignment (either collaterally or outright) or the granting of a lien or security interest in violation of this subsection 6.2(e)), (iv) any property management agreements in any way relating to the Timeshare Project including without limitation the certain Management Agreement by and between Bluegreen Wilderness Club at Long Creek Ranch Condominium Association, Inc. and Bluegreen Resorts Management, Inc., dated as of January 1, 2013, and all replacements and substitutions thereof, (v) any sales or marketing agreements in effect from time to time concerning the sale and marketing of Timeshare Inventory at the Timeshare Project, (vi) any other agreements now or hereafter in existence related to the development or operation of a timeshare project, including management, marketing, maintenance and service contracts, (vii) any intangibles, licenses and permits with respect to the Timeshare Project; or (viii) any right to vote on matters with respect to which owners of Timeshare Inventory may vote, and Borrower shall not grant any proxy rights in that regard. The aforementioned negative pledge shall be included within the financing statements that are filed and recorded against Borrower.
(f)Continuity of Operations. Borrower covenants and agrees with Lender that while this Agreement is in effect, Borrower shall
not, without the prior written consent of Lender: (i) engage in the type of business activities substantially different than those in which Borrower is presently engaged, (ii) cease operations, liquidate, merge, transfer, acquire or consolidate with any other entity, change its name, dissolve or transfer or sell Collateral out of the ordinary course of business, or (iii) during the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default, or event that with the giving of notice or the passage of time, or both, would become an Event of Default, make any distribution with respect to any capital account, whether by reduction of capital or otherwise.
(g)Prohibited Drug Law Activities. Borrower shall not enter into any lease, license, sublease, occupancy agreement or other agreement with any Person involving or relating to the use or occupancy of the Timeshare Project (or any portion thereof) which would be a violation of any state and/or federal laws relating to the use, sale, possession, cultivation and/or distribution of any controlled substances, including without limitation any Person engaged or intending to engage in activities (whether for commercial or personal purposes) regulated under any Arizona law or other applicable law relating to the medicinal use and/or distribution of marijuana ("Prohibited Drug Law Activities"). Borrower shall keep Lender advised of each action it takes or plans to take in compliance with the requirements of this Section 6.2(g). Compliance with the covenants in this Section 6.2(g) is a material consideration and inducement to Lender in its agreement to make the Loan to Borrower, and any failure of Borrower to comply with the foregoing requirements shall constitute an Event of Default hereunder. In addition, and not by way of limitation, Borrower hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Lender harmless for, from and against any loss, claim, damage or liability arising from or related to Borrower's breach or violation of said covenants, including without limitation any seizure and forfeiture to the United States without compensation to Lender, free and clear of Lender's first lien security interest in and to the Timeshare Project, or any action taken by the state or federal government to accomplish same. Borrower shall, within 10 Business Days following a request from Lender, provide Lender with a written statement setting forth its efforts to comply with the provisions of this Section 6.2(g) and stating whether to Borrower's knowledge any Prohibited Drug Law Activities are or may be on-going and/or have occurred in, on or around the Timeshare Project.

(b)Covenant Defaults. Borrower fails to perform or observe any covenant, agreement or obligation contained in this Agreement or in any of the Loan Documents. However, if any default described in this Section 7.1(b) is curable and if Borrower or Guarantor, as the case may be, has not been given a notice of a similar default within the preceding 12 months, such default be cured if Borrower or Guarantor, as the case may be, after receiving written notice from Lender demanding cure of such default: (1) cures the default within 30 days; or (2) if the cure requires more than 30 days, immediately initiates steps which Lender deems in Lender's sole discretion to be sufficient to cure the default and thereafter continues and completes all reasonable and necessary steps sufficient to produce compliance as soon as reasonably practical, which, in all events, must occur within 60 days of such failure. The foregoing notice and cure period shall not apply to a breach by Borrower of any covenant or agreement obligating Borrower to pay the Loan or any other amounts due under the Loan Documents, the covenants, agreements, and obligations in Sections 6.1(c)(i) (provided, however, that, in connection with Sections 6.1(c)(i), in all circumstances other than the lapse of insurance, the foregoing notice and cure period specified above shall apply), 6.1(g), 6.1(m), 6.2(b) or 6.2(c), or the covenants, agreements and obligations that are otherwise specifically addressed in other subsections of this Section 7.1.

(v)Vacation Club. (i) There occurs a termination or dissolution of the Vacation Club; or (ii) the Timeshare Project ceases to be a component resort of the Vacation Club.
7.2Effect of an Event of Default; Remedies. At any time after an Event of Default has occurred (including an Event of Default arising from a failure to pay the Loan in full on the Maturity Date) and while such Event of Default is continuing, Lender may but without obligation, in addition to the rights and powers granted elsewhere in the Loan Documents and not in limitation thereof, do any one or more of the following:
(a)declare the Note and all other sums owing by Borrower to Lender in connection with the Loan, immediately due and payable without further notice, presentment, demand or protest, which are hereby waived by Borrower; except that in the case of an Event of Default of the type described in Section 7.1(l), such acceleration shall be automatic and not optional;
(b)proceed to protect and enforce its rights and remedies under the Loan Documents and to foreclose or otherwise realize upon its security for the Performance of the Obligations, or to exercise any other rights and remedies available to it at law, in equity or by statute;
(c)request and have appointed a receiver with respect to Borrower and/or the Collateral, and to that end, Borrower hereby consents to the appointment of a receiver by Lender in any action initiated by Lender pursuant to this Agreement, and Borrower waives any notice and posting of a bond in connection therewith;
(d)at its discretion, retain all or part of the Collateral in partial or full satisfaction of the Obligations to the extent permitted by applicable law; however, Lender will not be considered to have offered to retain the Collateral in satisfaction of the Obligations, unless Lender has entered into a written agreement with Borrower to that effect;
(e)immediately cease to make further Advances and from time to time apply all or any portion of the undisbursed amount of the Loan to the payment of accrued interest under the Note and/or upon any other obligations of Borrower hereunder or under the Loan Documents. Lender may also withhold any one or more Advances after the occurrence of an Incipient Default, unless Borrower cures or corrects such event or condition to the reasonable satisfaction of Lender prior to the occurrence of an Event of Default;
exercise a right of setoff in all Borrower's accounts with Lender established under or in connection with the Receivables Loan;
increase the rate of interest accruing under the Loan to the Default Rate; and/or
exercise any and all other rights or remedies provided in the other Loan Documents or available at law, in equity or otherwise.
For the purpose of carrying out the provisions and exercising the rights, powers and privileges granted by Section 7.2(b), Borrower hereby unconditionally and irrevocably constitutes and appoints Lender true and lawful attorney-in-fact to enter into such contracts, perform such acts
and incur such liabilities as are referred to in said subsection in the name and on behalf of Borrower. This power of attorney is coupled with an interest.
All remedies of Lender provided for herein and in any other Loan Documents are cumulative and shall be in addition to all other rights and remedies provided by law or in equity. Except as may be prohibited by applicable law, all of Lender's rights and remedies shall be cumulative and may be exercised singularly or concurrently. The exercise of any right or remedy by Lender hereunder shall not in any way constitute a cure or waiver of default hereunder or under any other Loan Document or invalidate any act done pursuant to any notice of default, or prejudice Lender in the exercise of any of its rights hereunder or under any other Loan Document. If Lender exercises any of the rights or remedies provided in this Article 7, that exercise shall not make Lender, or cause Lender to be deemed to be, a partner or joint venturer of Borrower. No disbursement of loan funds by Lender shall cure any default of Borrower, unless Lender agrees otherwise in writing in each instance. Election by Lender to pursue any remedy shall not exclude pursuit of any other remedy, and an election to make expenditures or to take action to perform an obligation of Borrower or of any Grantor shall not affect Lender's right to declare a default and to exercise its rights and remedies.
7.3Application of Proceeds During an Event of Default. Notwithstanding anything in the Loan Documents to the contrary, but subject to Section 7.5, while an Event of Default exists, any cash received and retained by Lender in connection with any Collateral may be applied to payment of such of the Obligations as Lender in its discretion may determine.
7.5Application of Proceeds. The proceeds of any sale of all or any part of the Collateral made in connection with the exercise of Lender's rights and remedies shall be applied in the following order of priorities; first, to the payment of all costs and expenses of such sale, including compensation to Lender’s agents, reasonable attorneys' fees, and all other reasonable expenses, liabilities and advances incurred or made by Lender, its agents and attorneys, in connection with such sale, and any other unreimbursed expenses for which Lender may be reimbursed pursuant to the Loan Documents; second, to the payment of the Obligations in such order and manner as Lender may determine; and last, to the payment to Borrower, its successors or assigns, or to whosoever may be lawfully entitled to receive the same, or as a court of competent jurisdiction may direct, of any surplus then remaining from such proceeds.
7.6Lender's Right to Perform. Lender may, at its option, and without any obligation to do so, pay, perform and discharge any and all obligations agreed to be paid or Performed in the Loan Documents by Borrower or any surety for the Performance of the Obligations if (a) such Person fails to do so and (b) (i) an Event of Default exists and at least 5 Business Days' notice has been given to such Person of Lender's intention to take such action, (ii) the action taken by Lender involves obtaining insurance which such Person has failed to maintain in accordance with the Loan Documents or to deliver evidence thereof, or (iii) in the opinion of Lender, such action must be taken because an emergency exists or to preserve any of the Collateral or its value. For such purposes, Lender may use the proceeds of the Collateral. All
amounts expended by Lender in so doing or in exercising its remedies under the Loan Documents following an Event of Default shall become part of the Obligations, shall be immediately due and payable by Borrower to Lender upon demand, and shall bear interest at the Default Rate from the dates of such expenditures until paid.
7.7Waiver of Marshalling. Borrower, for itself and for all who may claim through or under it, hereby expressly waives and releases all right to have the Collateral, or any part of the Collateral, marshalled on any foreclosure, sale or other enforcement of Lender's rights and remedies.
7.8Waiver in Legal Actions. In connection with any proceedings related to the enforcement of remedies under this Agreement or the documents collateral hereto or the transactions contemplated hereunder, Borrower irrevocably waives:
(a)All procedural errors, defects and imperfections in such proceedings;
(b)Any requirement of bonds, and any surety or security relating thereto, required by any statute, court rule or otherwise as incident to such possession;
(c)Except as otherwise provided in the Loan Documents, demand, presentment and protest, notice of demand, presentment or protest of the Note, the Guaranty or any other Loan Document;
(d)The benefit of any valuation, appraisal and exemption law; and
(e)Any right to subrogation, reimbursement, contribution or indemnity.
7.9Set-Off. Lender reserves a right of setoff in all Borrower's accounts with Lender established under or in connection with the Receivables Loan.
8.COSTS AND EXPENSES; INDEMNIFICATION; DUTIES OF LENDER
8.1Costs and Expenses. Borrower shall promptly pay all taxes and assessments and all reasonable expenses, charges, costs and fees provided for in this Agreement or relating to the Loan, including, without limitation, fees and costs incurred in connection with protective advances made by Lender under this Agreement, any reasonable fees incurred for recording or filing any of the Loan Documents, title insurance premiums and charges, tax service contract fees, fees of any consultants, reasonable fees and expenses of Lender's counsel, documentation, closing, and processing fees, printing, photostating and duplicating expenses, air freight charges, escrow fees, costs of surveys, premiums of hazard insurance policies and surety bonds and fees for any appraisal and appraisal review, environmental report and environmental report review, inspection report review, and market or feasibility study required by Lender. Borrower hereby authorizes Lender to disburse the proceeds of the Loan to pay such expenses,
charges, costs and fees notwithstanding that Borrower may not have requested a disbursement of such amount. Lender shall make such disbursements notwithstanding the fact that the Loan is not "in balance" or that Borrower is in default under the terms of this Agreement or any other Loan Document. Such disbursement shall be added to the outstanding principal balance of the Note. The authorization hereby granted shall be irrevocable, and no further direction or authorization from Borrower shall be necessary for Lender to make such disbursements. However, the provision of this Section 8.1 shall not prevent Borrower from paying such expense, charges, costs and fees from its own funds. All such expenses, charges, costs and fees shall be Borrower's obligation regardless of whether or not Borrower has requested and met the conditions for a disbursement of the Loan. The obligations on the part of Borrower under this Section 8.1 shall survive the closing of the Loan and the repayment thereof. Borrower hereby authorizes Lender, in its discretion, to pay such expenses, charges, costs and fees at any time by a disbursement of the Loan.
8.2Indemnification. Borrower will INDEMNIFY, PROTECT, HOLD HARMLESS, and defend Lender, its successors, assigns and shareholders (including corporate shareholders), and the directors, officers, employees, servants and agents of any of the foregoing, for, from and against: (a) any and all liability, damage, penalties, or fines, loss, costs or expenses (including court costs and attorneys' fees, whether incurred in a third party action or in an action to enforce this Agreement), claims, demands, suits, proceedings (whether civil or criminal), orders, judgments, penalties, fines and other sanctions whatsoever asserted against it as a result of actions, claims, counterclaims, fines, penalties or otherwise and arising from or brought in connection with the Timeshare Project, the Collateral, Lender's status by virtue of the Loan Documents, sales of Timeshare Inventory or the financing of such sales, in either case, in violation of or in noncompliance with any Legal Requirements, the breach by Borrower of any terms and provisions of the Loan Documents, the sale or financing of Timeshare Inventory, the creation of liens and security interests, the terms of the Loan Documents or the transactions related thereto, any assertion that Lender is a partner or joint venturer of Borrower or any other Person by virtue of the making of the Loan, or any act or omission of Borrower or an Agent, or their respective employees or agents, whether actual or alleged ("Losses"), except to the extent that any of the foregoing Losses described in this clause (a) are caused by Lender's gross negligence or willful misconduct or first accrue after foreclosure or deed in lieu of foreclosure; (b) any and all brokers' commissions or finders' fees or other costs of similar type by any party in connection with the Loan, other than those owed to Ward Financial arising from the acts of Lender; and (c) any mechanics liens filed against the Long Creek Phases. On written request by a Person covered by the above agreement of indemnity, Borrower will undertake, at its own cost and expense, on behalf of such indemnitee, using counsel reasonably satisfactory to the indemnitee, the defense of any legal action or proceeding to which such Person shall be a party. At Lender's option, Lender may at Borrower's expense prosecute or defend any action within the scope of the indemnification contained in this Section 8.2 to the extent Borrower does not promptly prosecute or defend such action with counsel reasonably acceptable to Lender. No termination of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents shall affect or impair the indemnification provisions contained in this Section 8.2 and all such provisions shall survive such termination.
8.4Delegation of Duties and Rights. Lender may execute any of its duties and/or exercise any of its rights or remedies under the Loan Documents by or through its officers, directors, employees, attorneys, agents, representatives or through other Persons.
8.5Foreign Assets Control. Lender may disclose any and all information regarding Borrower and a Purchaser in connection with any regulatory examination of Lender or to the extent Lender deems advisable to disclose such information to such applicable regulatory agencies involving matters relating to the Trading With the Enemy Act, the Foreign Assets Control Regulations or the Executive Order; provided, however, that if Lender is legally permitted to do so, no such disclosure shall be made prior to the Lender (x) giving the Borrower prior written notification within one (1) Business Day after Lender's receipt of notice of any such required disclosure or decision of the Lender to make such disclosure, that explains in reasonable detail (if known to Lender), the basis for such disclosure, which notification shall include the following: (i) the contents of the disclosure, (ii) the Person to whom the disclosure must be made, and (iii) if known to Lender, the legal basis for the disclosure; (y) using commercially reasonable efforts to require that any recipient of such disclosure maintain such information on a confidential basis in accordance with all Legal Requirements, including all applicable consumer privacy laws; and (z) if Lender is legally permitted to do so, providing Borrower with an opportunity to redact all of the names, social security numbers and bank account numbers of, and all non-public personal information pertaining to, any Purchasers.

9.1Payment. All monies payable under the Loan Documents shall be paid to Lender in lawful monies of the United States of America.
9.2Entire Agreement. The Loan Documents exclusively and completely state the rights and obligations of Lender and Borrower with respect to the Loan.

9.7General Submission Requirements. All documents, agreements, reports, surveys, appraisal, insurance, references, financial information or other submissions (collectively the "Submissions") required under the Loan Documents shall be in form and content reasonably satisfactory to Lender and prepared and performed at Borrower's expense. Lender shall have the prior right of approval of any person, firm or entity responsible for preparing each Submission ("Preparer") and may reject any Submission if Lender believes in its sole opinion that the experience, skill, reputation or other aspect of the Preparer is unsatisfactory in any respect.
9.8Successors and Assigns; Participation.
At any time either concurrently with or subsequent to the execution and delivery of this Agreement, ZB, N.A. DBA NATIONAL BANK OF ARIZONA and its successors ("NBA") may assign to one or more banks or other financial institutions (such banks and other financial institutions together with their permitted successors and assigns, each, an "Assignee") all or portions of its rights and obligations as a lender under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, provided, however, that (i) each such assignment shall be of a constant, not a varying, percentage of such rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, (ii) the parties to each such assignment shall execute and deliver to NBA, for its acceptance, such assignment documents (which shall include, without limitation, an assumption of NBA's obligations hereunder to the extent of such assignment) as NBA may require, (iii) Borrower shall execute and deliver (A) such replacement promissory notes as NBA may require to evidence such assignment and the respective portions of the Loan held by NBA and each Assignee and (B) such other documents as NBA may reasonably require in connection with such assignment; and (iv), such assignments shall be subject to the Borrower's approval which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, provided that Borrower shall not have a right to approve the Assignee or the assignment if (A) an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, or (B) the Borrowing Term has expired, or (C) the Assignee
is an Eligible Assignee. If any such approval is not withheld in writing with a statement of the reasons therefor within ten (10) days after NBA gives notice of such an assignment, such approval shall be deemed given. Upon such assignment and assumption, (i) to the extent of the interest assigned the (A) Assignee shall have the rights and obligations of a lender under the Loan Documents and (B) the assignor (including, without limitation, NBA) shall be relieved of such obligations and (ii) the obligations of NBA and Assignee to fund Advances shall be several in accordance with the portion of the Loan held by each, and not joint. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, in the event the Assignee is an Eligible Assignee and also an Affiliate of NBA, NBA shall not be relieved of its obligations under the Loan Documents, and the obligations of NBA and such Affiliate to fund Advances shall be joint and not several obligations. NBA and each Assignee may also transfer interests by way of participation; provided, in the case of the transfer of such a participation interest, (A) such selling party's obligations to the Borrower under this Agreement and the Loan Documents shall remain unchanged; (B) such selling party shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations; and (C) parties to this Agreement and the Loan Documents shall continue to deal solely and directly with such selling party in connection with such selling party's rights and obligations under this Agreement and the Loan Documents. In order to facilitate such assignments and participations, the Borrower shall execute such further documents, instruments or agreements as Lender may reasonably require; provided, however, that Borrower shall not be responsible for any costs or expenses in connection with any such assignment or participation.
Upon any assignment of less than all of NBA's interest in the Loan, (i) NBA will continue to act as administrative agent on behalf of all of lenders and (ii) NBA and each Assignee may enter into such co-lending or other agreements with all of the Assignees establishing (among other things) procedures for administration and enforcement of the Loan, voting on various matters, the terms under which NBA will act as administrative agent (and if applicable, collateral agent), the terms and conditions governing further assignments and participations by Assignee (if and to the extent further assignments are permitted by NBA), and enforcement of the Loan Documents; provided, however, that under no circumstances will any such agreements between NBA and any Assignee alter, amend, change or result in the alteration, amendment or change to any of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, without Borrower's prior written consent. So long as NBA is acting as administrative agent, Borrower shall only be required and permitted to provide notices to and seek consents and approvals through NBA and Borrower shall not communicate directly with the Assignees, unless expressly approved by NBA.
Without limiting the other provisions of this Section, from and after each assignment permitted pursuant to this Section (other than assignments by NBA of its entire interest in the Loan): (i) all grants of collateral security (including, without limitation, each deed of trust, mortgage, security agreement, assignment of rents and leases, and other assignments for security in the Loan Documents shall be deemed made to NBA in its capacity as administrative agent for the pro rata benefit of NBA and the Assignees as lenders; (ii) all obligations and liabilities of Borrower and Guarantor pursuant to the Loan Documents shall be deemed to inure to the pro rata benefit of NBA and the Assignees as lenders; and (iii) all indemnity and reimbursement obligations of Borrower and guarantor shall be in favor of NBA and Assignees in accordance with their pro rata interests and in the case of indemnities shall include all named indemnified parties of NBA and Assignee (for
example an indemnity in favor of a party and its officers, directors, agents, and employees shall be for the benefit of the officers, directors, agents, and employees of each of NBA and the Assignee); provided that any obligation of the Borrower to reimburse for out of pocket costs and expenses of any party shall be deemed to refer to the party incurring such costs and expenses.
As used herein, "Eligible Assignee" means (i) NBA or any of its Affiliates or (ii) any other bank or financial institution that has assets of at least $5,000,000,000; provided that the identity of the Eligible Assignee (in the case of clause (ii)) shall be subject to prior written approval of each of Borrower and Guarantor, which will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
9.9Successors and Assigns. All the covenants of Borrower and all the rights and remedies of Lender contained in the Loan Documents shall bind Borrower, and, subject to the restrictions on merger, consolidation and assignment contained in the Loan Documents, its successors and assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of Lender, its successors and assigns, whether so expressed or not. Borrower may not assign its rights in the Loan Documents in whole or in part. Except as may be expressly provided in a Loan Document, no Person shall be deemed a third party beneficiary of any provision of the Loan Documents.
9.10Severability. If any provision of any Loan Document is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable under present or future laws, the legality, validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of the Loan Documents shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby. In lieu of each such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, there shall be added to the Loan Document affected, a provision that is legal, valid and enforceable and as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid and unenforceable provision as may be possible.
9.11Time of Essence. Time is of the essence in the Performance of the Obligations.
9.12Miscellaneous. All headings are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect any construction or interpretation of the Loan Documents. Unless otherwise indicated, all references in a Loan Document to clauses and other subdivisions refer to the corresponding paragraphs, clauses and other subdivisions of the Loan Document. All Schedules and Exhibits referred to in this Agreement are incorporated in this Agreement by reference.
9.13 FORUM SELECTION; JURISDICTION; CHOICE OF LAW. THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF ARIZONA, THE PRIMARY PLACE OF BUSINESS OF LENDER, WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO ITS CONFLICTS OF LAW PRINCIPLES. BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS WERE SUBSTANTIALLY NEGOTIATED IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA, THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS WERE DELIVERED BY BORROWER IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA, EXECUTED BY LENDER IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA AND ACCEPTED BY LENDER IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA AND THAT THERE ARE
SUBSTANTIAL CONTACTS BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREIN AND THE STATE OF ARIZONA. SUBJECT TO THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION 9.14, FOR PURPOSES OF ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OF THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY EXPRESSLY SUBMIT TO THE NON-EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION OF ALL FEDERAL AND STATE COURTS LOCATED IN THE STATE OF ARIZONA AND BORROWER CONSENTS THAT IT MAY BE SERVED WITH ANY PROCESS OR PAPER BY PERSONAL SERVICE WITHIN OR WITHOUT THE STATE OF ARIZONA IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE LAW. FURTHERMORE, BORROWER WAIVES AND AGREES NOT TO ASSERT IN ANY SUCH ACTION, SUIT OR PROCEEDING THAT IT IS NOT PERSONALLY SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION OF SUCH COURTS, THAT THE ACTION, SUIT OR PROCEEDING IS BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT FORUM OR THAT VENUE OF THE ACTION, SUIT OR PROCEEDING IS IMPROPER. TO THE EXTENT THAT A COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION FINDS ARIZONA LAW INAPPLICABLE WITH RESPECT TO ANY PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, THEN, AS TO THOSE PROVISIONS ONLY, THE LAWS OF THE STATES WHERE THE COLLATERAL IS LOCATED SHALL BE DEEMED TO APPLY. NOTHING IN THIS SECTION SHALL LIMIT OR RESTRICT THE RIGHT OF LENDER TO COMMENCE ANY PROCEEDING IN THE FEDERAL OR STATE COURTS LOCATED IN THE STATES IN WHICH THE COLLATERAL IS LOCATED TO THE EXTENT LENDER DEEMS SUCH PROCEEDING NECESSARY OR ADVISABLE TO EXERCISE REMEDIES AVAILABLE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS.
THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS SHALL BE INTERPRETED WITHOUT REGARD TO ANY RULE OR CANON OF CONSTRUCTION WHICH INTERPRETS AGREEMENTS AGAINST A DRAFTSMAN.
9.14DISPUTE RESOLUTION. This section contains a jury waiver, arbitration clause, and a class action waiver. READ IT CAREFULLY.
This dispute resolution provision shall supersede and replace any prior "Jury Waiver," "Judicial Reference," "Class Action Waiver," "Arbitration," "Dispute Resolution," or similar alternative dispute agreement or provision between or among the parties.
JURY TRIAL WAIVER; CLASS ACTION WAIVER. As permitted by applicable law, each party waives their respective rights to a trial before a jury in connection with any Dispute (as "Dispute" is hereinafter defined), and Disputes shall be resolved by a judge sitting without a jury. If a court determines that this provision is not enforceable for any reason and at any time prior to trial of the Dispute, but not later than 30 days after entry of the order determining this provision is unenforceable, any party shall be entitled to move the court for an order compelling arbitration and staying or dismissing such litigation pending arbitration ("Arbitration Order"). If permitted by applicable law, each party also waives the right to litigate in court or an arbitration proceeding any Dispute as a class action, either as a member of a class or as a representative, or to act as a private attorney general.
ARBITRATION. If a claim, dispute, or controversy arises between us with respect to this Agreement, related agreements, or any other agreement or business relationship between any of us whether or not related to the subject matter of this Agreement (all of the foregoing, a "Dispute"), and only if a jury trial waiver is not permitted by applicable law or ruling by a court, any of us may require that the Dispute be resolved by binding arbitration before a mutually agreed upon single arbitrator at the request of any party. By agreeing to arbitrate a Dispute, each party gives up any right that party may have to a jury trial, as well as other rights that party would have in court that are not available or are more limited in arbitration, such as the rights to discovery and to appeal.
Arbitration shall be commenced by filing a petition with, and in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules of, JAMS or National Arbitration Forum ("Administrator") as selected by the initiating party. If the parties agree, arbitration may be commenced by appointment of a licensed attorney who is selected by the parties and who agrees to conduct the arbitration without an Administrator. Disputes include matters (i) relating to a deposit account, application for or denial of credit, enforcement of any of the obligations we have to each other, compliance with applicable laws and/or regulations, performance or services provided under any agreement by any party, (ii) based on or arising from an alleged tort, or (iii) involving either of our employees, agents, affiliates, or assigns of a party. However, Disputes do not include the validity, enforceability, meaning, or scope of this arbitration provision and such matters may be determined only by a court. If a third party is a party to a Dispute, we each will consent to including the third party in the arbitration proceeding for resolving the Dispute with the third party. Venue for the arbitration proceeding shall be at a location determined by mutual agreement of the parties or, if no agreement, in the city and state where Lender is headquartered.
After entry of an Arbitration Order, the non-moving party shall commence arbitration (but shall not be required to commence arbitration in the event of the moving party's decision not to do so as set forth in the next sentence). The moving party shall, at its discretion, also be entitled to commence arbitration but is under no obligation to do s
