WHEREAS, as a condition to providing the 2017 Term Loan to TEMI, the Lender has required the Pledgor to pledge its ownership interests in the real property located at Hirfanlı Sokak 5 GOP, Cankaya Ankara – Turkey 06700 (the “Property”) as collateral for the 2017 Term Loan pursuant to that certain Pledge Agreement (the “Pledge Agreement”), by and between Pledgor and Lender dated as of the date hereof;

WHEREAS, the Lender and the Company have determined that the Property has a value of $5.2 million (collectively, the “Collateral Value”); and

Upon request by Pledgor from time to time, the Company agrees to enter, or to cause its subsidiaries to enter, into additional definitive documentation in support of the foregoing to ensure that Pledgor obtains all legal and economic benefits contemplated by this Agreement, including, without limitation, loan documentation on terms substantially similar to the 2017 Term Loan documents.
