A.           Borrower and Lender are party to that certain Loan Agreement dated as of December 22, 2005 (as modified, amended, renewed, extended, and restated, the “ Loan Agreement ”).

 

B.           Borrower has failed to satisfy for the fiscal quarters ending December 31, 2010 and March 31, 2011 (the “ Subject Periods ”), (i) the minimum Tangible Net Worth required by Section 9.1 of the Loan Agreement, (ii) the maximum Leverage Ratio permitted by Section 9.2 of the Loan Agreement, and (iii) the minimum Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio required by Section 9.3 of the Loan Agreement (collectively, the “ Subject Defaults ”).  Borrower has requested that Lender waive the Subject Defaults for the Subject Periods and amend certain provisions of the Loan Documents.  Lender has agreed, subject to the terms and conditions of this Amendment, to waive such Subject Defaults solely for the Subject Periods and amend the Loan Documents.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto agree as follows:

 

1.             Terms and References .  Unless otherwise stated in this Amendment, (a) terms defined in the Loan Agreement have the same meanings when used in this Amendment, and (b) references to “ Sections ” are to the Loan Agreement’s sections.

 

2.             Waiver .  Subject to the terms and conditions in this Amendment, Lender hereby waives the Subject Defaults solely for the Subject Periods.  The waiver hereby granted by Lender (a) is limited expressly as written, (b) does not impair Lender’s rights to insist upon strict compliance with the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and (c) does not extend to any other Defaults or Events of Default.

 

Lender hereby expressly reserves all rights and remedies available to it under any of the Loan Documents, at law, in equity, or otherwise, and expressly reserves the right at any time and from time to time to take any action available to it that it deems appropriate under the circumstances.  No past, present, or future failure by Lender to notify Borrower of any Default or Event of Default or failure or delay by Lender in exercising any rights and remedies available under the Loan Documents shall constitute a waiver of any Default or Event of Default, whether known or unknown, and whether now existing or hereafter arising.
