Interest on the principal amount of this Note shall accrue from and including the date hereof to and including the date such principal amount is paid, at the rate of 10.0% per annum, payable on the first day of each month in arrears, on the unpaid principal amount of this Note outstanding from time to time. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 365-day year and the actual number of days elapsed.
This Note is one of the Senior Subordinated Notes issued pursuant to the Note Purchase Agreement dated as of the date hereof among the Borrower and the Purchasers party thereto (the “Note Purchase Agreement”). A copy of the Note Purchase Agreement may be examined upon reasonable notice during normal business hours at the
offices of the Borrower. The Note Purchase Agreement contains terms governing the rights of the Purchaser of this Note, and all provisions of the Note Purchase Agreement are hereby incorporated herein in full by reference. Any capitalized term used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning assigned to it in the Note Purchase Agreement.
This Note shall be prepayable in whole or in part at any time without premium or penalty at the option of the Borrower.
Upon the commencement of any bankruptcy, composition, adjustment of debt, relief of debtors, involuntary dissolution, insolvency proceeding or involuntary liquidation or similar proceeding under the laws of any jurisdiction with respect to the Borrower, the unpaid principal amount hereof, shall become immediately due and payable.
No failure or delay on the part of the Purchaser in exercising any of its rights, powers or privileges hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof, nor shall a single or partial exercise thereof preclude any other or further exercise of any right, power or privilege. The remedies provided herein are cumulative and are not exclusive of any remedies provided by law.
Neither the Borrower nor other parties hereafter becoming liable for payment of this Note shall ever be required to pay interest on this Note at a rate in excess of the maximum interest that may be lawfully charged under applicable law, and the provisions of this paragraph shall control over all provisions of this Note which may be in apparent conflict herewith. In the event that the Purchaser shall collect monies which are deemed to constitute interest which would increase the effective rate of this Note to a rate in excess of that permitted to be charged by applicable law, all such sums deemed to constitute interest in excess of the lawful rate shall, upon such determination, at the option of the Purchaser, be either immediately returned to the Borrower or credited against the principal balance of this Note then outstanding, in which event any and all penalties of any kind under applicable law as a result of such excess interest shall be applicable.
This Note shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York.
