Each Secured Party shall take such actions and execute such documents as may be necessary to confirm or accomplish any Act of the Secured Parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the consent of each affected Secured Party shall be necessary to do the following to any Note:
(a) reduce the percentage of the principal and interest amount of any Loan;
(b) reduce the rate of or change the time for payment of interest on any Loan;
(c) reduce the principal of or change the fixed maturity of any Loan; or
(d) make any Loan payable in money other than that stated in the Note.
9. Unequal Payment by Grantor. Each Secured Party agrees that if it shall obtain or receive, through the exercise of any right granted to the Secured Parties under this Security Agreement, under the Notes or by applicable law, including, but not limited to any right of set-off, any secured claim under Section 506 of the Bankruptcy Code or any other security or interest, any payment or payments greater than its Pro Rata share of all Loans, as measured immediately prior to the receipt of such payment or payments, then (a) such Secured Party shall promptly purchase at par (and shall be deemed to have thereupon purchased) from the other Secured Parties, a participation in the Loans of such other Secured Parties, so that each Secured Party shall have received payments in proportion to its Pro Rata share immediately prior to such transactions and (b) such other adjustments shall be made from time to time as shall be equitable to ensure that the Secured Parties share the benefits of such payment on a Pro Rata basis. The term Loan as used in this paragraph shall include accrued interest thereon.
10. Indemnity. Grantor agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Secured Parties and their officers, employees, and agents against
(a) all obligations, demands, claims, and liabilities claimed or asserted by any other party in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Security Agreement and (b) all losses or expenses in any way suffered, incurred, or paid by any Secured Party as a result of or in any way arising out of, following or consequential to the transactions contemplated by this Security Agreement (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys fees and expenses), except for losses arising from or out of such Secured Partys gross negligence or willful misconduct.
11. Reinstatement. This Security Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and continue to be effective should any petition be filed by or against Grantor for liquidation or reorganization, should Grantor become insolvent or make an assignment for the benefit of creditors or should a receiver or trustee be appointed for all or any significant part of Grantors property and assets, and shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment and performance of the Secured Obligations, or any part thereof, is, pursuant to applicable law, rescinded or reduced in amount, or must otherwise be restored or returned by any obligee of the Secured Obligations, whether as a voidable preference, fraudulent conveyance, or otherwise, all as though such payment or performance had not been made. In the event that any payment, or any part thereof, is rescinded, reduced, restored or returned, the Secured Obligations shall be reinstated and deemed reduced only by such amount paid and not so rescinded, reduced, restored or returned.
12.1 Waivers; Modifications. None of the terms or provisions of this Security Agreement may be waived, altered, modified or amended except by an instrument in writing, duly executed by Grantor, C5 and the Majority Lenders. Each Secured Party acknowledges that because this Security Agreement may be amended with the consent of C5 and the Majority Lenders, each Secured Partys rights hereunder may be amended or waived without such Secured Partys consent.
12.2 Termination of this Security Agreement. Subject to Section 11 hereof, this Security Agreement shall terminate upon the payment and performance in full of the Secured Obligations and the expiration or termination of any commitment of the Secured Parties to make Loans to Grantor.
12.3 Successor and Assigns. This Security Agreement and all obligations of Grantor hereunder shall be binding upon the successors and assigns of Grantor, and shall, together with the rights and remedies of the Secured Parties hereunder, inure to the benefit of the Secured Parties, any future holder of any of the Secured Obligations and their respective successors and assigns. No sales of participations in the Secured Obligations or any portion thereof or interest therein, and no sales, assignments, transfers or other dispositions of any agreement governing or instrument evidencing the Secured Obligations or any portion thereof or interest therein, shall in any manner affect the lien granted to the Secured Parties hereunder.
12.4 Governing Law. In all respects, including all matters of construction, validity and performance, this Security Agreement shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York applicable to contracts made and performed in such state, without regard to the principles thereof regarding conflict of laws, except to the extent that the UCC provides for the application of the law of a different jurisdiction.
12.5 Amendment and Restatement. Notwithstanding this amendment and restatement of the Original Security Agreements, (i) all of the indebtedness, liabilities and obligations owing by the Grantors or any other person under the Original Security Agreements shall continue as obligations hereunder, as amended hereby, and shall be and remain secured by this Security Agreement, (ii) the security interest granted by the Grantor to each Secured Party, in all of the Grantors rights, title and interests in, to and under the assets and properties of the Grantor pursuant to the Original Security Agreements (the Existing Security Interest) shall continue as a security interest hereunder, as amended hereby, and (iii) this Security Agreement is given as a substitution of, and not as a payment of the indebtedness, liabilities and obligations of the Grantor under the Original Security Agreements and neither the execution and delivery of this Security Agreement nor the consummation of any other transaction contemplated hereunder is intended to constitute a novation of the Original Security Agreements or the Existing Security Interest created thereunder.
12.6 Counterparts; Facsimile or PDF Copies. This Security Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties on separate counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, shall be deemed to be an original, and all of which, when taken together, shall constitute but one and the same agreement.
