6.2          Warehouse Receipts Non-Negotiable

 

The Assignor agrees that if any warehouse receipt or receipt in the nature of a warehouse receipt is issued with respect to any of its Inventory, such warehouse receipt or receipt in the nature thereof shall not be "negotiable" (as such term is used in Section 7-104 of the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in any relevant jurisdiction or under other relevant law).

 

6.3          Further Actions

 

The Assignor will, at its own expense, make, execute, endorse, acknowledge, file and/or deliver to the Collateral Agent from time to time, such lists, descriptions and designations of its Collateral, warehouse receipts, receipts in the nature of warehouse receipts, bills of lading, documents of title, vouchers, invoices, schedules, confirmatory assignments, conveyances, financing statements, transfer endorsements, powers of attorney, certificates, reports and other assurances or instruments and take such further steps relating to the Collateral and other property or rights covered by the security interest hereby granted, which the Collateral Agent deems reasonably appropriate or advisable to perfect, preserve or protect its security interest in the Collateral.

 

6.4          Financing Statements

 

The Assignor agrees to assign and deliver to the Collateral Agent such financing statements, in form acceptable to the Collateral Agent, as the Collateral Agent may from time to time reasonably request or as are necessary or desirable in the opinion of the Collateral Agent to establish and maintain a valid, enforceable, first priority security interest in the Collateral as provided herein and the other rights and security contemplated herein, all in accordance with the Uniform Commercial Code as enacted in any and all relevant jurisdictions or any other relevant

law.  The Assignor will pay any applicable filing fees and related expenses.  The Assignor authorizes the Collateral Agent to file any such financing statements without the signature of the Assignor.

 

7.            Remedies Upon Occurrence of Event of Default

 

7.1          Remedies; Obtaining Collateral Upon Default

 

The Assignor agrees that, if any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, then and in every such case, subject to any mandatory requirements of applicable law then in effect, the Collateral Agent, in addition to any rights now or hereafter existing under applicable law, shall have all rights as a secured creditor under the Uniform Commercial Code in all relevant jurisdictions and may:

 

(a)          Personally, or by agents or attorneys, immediately retake possession of the Collateral or any part thereof, from the Assignor or any other Person who then has possession of any part thereof with or without notice or process of law, and for that purpose may enter upon the Assignor's premises where any of the Collateral is located and remove the same and use in connection with such removal any and all services, supplies, aids and other facilities of the Assignor;

 

(b)          Instruct the obligor or obligors on any agreement, instrument or other obligation (including, without limitation, the Receivables) constituting the Collateral to make any payment required by the terms of such instrument or agreement directly to the Collateral Agent;

 

(c)           Withdraw all monies, securities and instruments in the Cash Collateral Account for application to the Obligations;

 

(d)          Sell, assign or otherwise liquidate, or direct the Assignor to sell, assign or otherwise liquidate, any or all of the Collateral or any part thereof, and take possession of the proceeds of any such sale or liquidation; and

 

(e)          Take possession of the Collateral or any part thereof, by directing the Assignor in writing to deliver the same to the Collateral Agent at any place or places designated by the Collateral Agent, in which event the Assignor shall at its own expense:  (1) forthwith cause the same to be moved to the place or places so designated by the Collateral Agent and there delivered to the Collateral Agent, (2) store and keep any Collateral so delivered to the Collateral Agent at such place or places pending further action by the Collateral Agent as provided in Section 7.2, and (3) while the Collateral shall be so stored and kept, provide such guards and maintenance services as shall be necessary to protect the same and to preserve and maintain them in good condition; it being understood that the Assignor's obligation so to deliver the Collateral is of the essence of this Agreement and that, accordingly, upon application to a court having jurisdiction, the Collateral Agent shall be entitled to a decree requiring specific performance by the Assignor of said obligation.

 

7.2          Remedies; Disposition of Collateral

 

Any Collateral repossessed by the Collateral Agent under or pursuant to Section 7.1, and any other Collateral whether or not so repossessed by the Collateral Agent, may be sold, assigned, leased or otherwise disposed of under one or more contracts or as an entirety, and without the necessity of gathering at the place of sale the property to be sold, and in general in such manner, at such time or times, at such place or places and on such terms as the Collateral Agent may, in compliance with any mandatory requirements of applicable law, determine to be commercially reasonable.  Any of the Collateral may be sold, leased or otherwise disposed of, in the condition in which the same existed when taken by the Collateral Agent or after any overhaul or repair which the Collateral Agent shall determine to be commercially reasonable.  Any such disposition which shall be a private sale or other private proceeding permitted by such requirements shall be made upon not less than [spelled number of days] (______) days' written notice to the Assignor specifying the time at which such disposition is to be made and the intended sale price or other consideration therefor, and shall be subject, for the [spelled number of days] (______) days after the giving of such notice, to the right of the Assignor or any nominee of the Assignor to acquire the Collateral involved at a price or for such other consideration at least equal to the intended sale price or other consideration so specified.  Any such disposition which shall be a public sale permitted by such requirements shall be made upon not less than [spelled number of days] (______) days' written notice to the Assignor specifying the time and place of such sale and, in the absence of applicable requirements of law, shall be by public auction (which may, at the Collateral Agent's option, be subject to reserve), after publication of notice of such auction not less than [spelled number of days] (______) days prior thereto in two newspapers in general circulation in ______.  To the extent permitted by any such requirement of law, the Collateral Agent on behalf of the Banks and/or the holders of the Notes may bid for and become the purchaser of the Collateral or any item thereof, offered for sale in accordance with this Section 7.2 without accountability to the Assignor (except to the extent of surplus money received as provided in Section 7.4).  If, under mandatory requirements of applicable law, the Collateral Agent shall be required to make disposition of the Collateral within a period of time which does not permit the giving of notice to the Assignor as hereinabove specified, the Collateral Agent need give the Assignor only such notice of disposition as shall be reasonably practicable in view of such mandatory requirements of applicable law.

 

7.3          Waiver of Claims

 

Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, THE ASSIGNOR HEREBY WAIVES, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, NOTICE AND JUDICIAL HEARING IN CONNECTION WITH THE COLLATERAL AGENT'S TAKING POSSESSION OR THE COLLATERAL AGENT'S DISPOSITION OF ANY OF THE COLLATERAL, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY AND ALL PRIOR NOTICE AND HEARING FOR ANY PREJUDGMENT REMEDY OR REMEDIES AND ANY SUCH RIGHT WHICH ASSIGNOR WOULD OTHERWISE HAVE UNDER THE CONSTITUTION OR ANY STATUTE OF THE UNITED STATES OR OF ANY STATE, and the Assignor hereby further waives, to the extent permitted by law:

 

(a)          All damages occasioned by such taking of possession except any damages which are the direct result of the Collateral Agent's gross negligence or willful misconduct;

 

(b)          All other requirements as to the time, place and terms of sale or other requirements with respect to the enforcement of the Collateral Agent's rights hereunder; and

 

(c)           All rights of redemption, appraisement, valuation, stay, extension or moratorium now or hereafter in force under any applicable law in order to prevent or delay the enforcement of this Agreement or the absolute sale of the Collateral or any portion thereof, and the Assignor, for itself and all who may claim under it, insofar as it or they now or hereafter lawfully may, hereby waives the benefit of all such laws.

 

Any sale of, or the grant of options to purchase, or any other realization upon, any Collateral shall operate to divest all right, title, interest, claim and demand, either at law or in equity, of the Assignor therein and thereto, and shall be a perpetual bar both at law and in equity against the Assignor and against any and all Persons claiming or attempting to claim the Collateral so sold, optioned or realized upon, or any part thereof, from, through and under the Assignor.

 

7.4          Application of Proceeds

 

The proceeds of any Collateral obtained pursuant to Section 7.1 or disposed of pursuant to Section 7.2 shall be applied as follows:

 

(a)          To the payment of any and all expenses and fees (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees) incurred by the Collateral Agent in obtaining, taking possession of, removing, insuring, repairing, storing and disposing of Collateral and any and all amounts incurred by the Collateral Agent in connection therewith;

 

(b)          Next, any surplus then remaining to the payment of the Obligations in the following order of priority:  (1) all interest accrued and unpaid; (2) the principal amount owing on the Loans; (3) the fees than owing to the Agent; and (4) all other Obligations then owing; and

 

(c)           If the Total Commitment is then terminated and no other Obligation is outstanding, any surplus then remaining shall be paid to the Assignor, subject, however, to the rights of the holder of any then existing Lien of which the Collateral Agent has actual notice (without investigation); it being understood that the Assignor shall remain liable to the extent of any deficiency between the amount of the proceeds of the Collateral and the aggregate amount of the sums referred to in clauses (a) and (b) of this Section 7.4 with respect to the Assignor.

 

7.5    Remedies Cumulative

 

No failure or delay on the part of the Collateral Agent or any Bank or any holder of any Note in exercising any right, power or privilege hereunder or under any other Credit Document and no

course of dealing between the Assignor and the Collateral Agent or any Bank or the holder of any Note shall operate as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder or under any other Credit Document preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege hereunder or thereunder.  The rights, powers and remedies herein or in any other Credit Document expressly provided are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights, powers or remedies which the Collateral Agent or any Bank or the holder of any Note would otherwise have.  No notice to or demand on the Assignor in any case shall entitle the Assignor to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances or constitute a waiver of the rights of the Collateral Agent or any Bank or the holder of any Note to any other or further action in any circumstances without notice or demand.

 

7.6          Discontinuance of Proceedings

 

In case the Collateral Agent shall have instituted any proceeding to enforce any right, power or remedy under this Agreement by foreclosure, sale, entry or otherwise, and such proceeding shall have been discontinued or abandoned for any reason or shall have been determined adversely to the Collateral Agent, then and in every such case the Assignor, the Collateral Agent and each holder of any of the Obligations shall be restored to their former positions and rights hereunder with respect to the Collateral subject to the security interest created under this Agreement, and all rights, remedies and powers of the Collateral Agent shall continue as if no such proceeding had been instituted.

8.1          Indemnity

 

(a)          The Assignor agrees to indemnify, reimburse and hold the Collateral Agent, each Bank, the holder of any Note, and their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents (hereinafter in this Section 8.1 referred to individually as "Indemnitee" and collectively as "Indemnitees") harmless from any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, claims, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses) (for the purposes of this Section 8.1 the foregoing are collectively called "expenses") of whatsoever kind or nature which may be imposed on, asserted against or incurred by any of the Indemnitees in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement, any other Credit Document or the documents executed in connection herewith and therewith or in any other way connected with the administration of the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby or the enforcement of any of the terms of or the preservation of any rights under any thereof, or in any way relating to or arising out of the manufacture, ownership, ordering, purchase, delivery, control, acceptance, lease, financing, possession, operation, condition, sale, return or other disposition or use of the Collateral (including, without limitation, latent or other defects, whether or not discoverable), the violation of the laws of any country, state or other governmental body or unit, any tort (including, without limitation, claims arising or imposed under the doctrine of strict liability, or for or on account of injury to or the death of any Person (including any Indemnitee), or for

(b)          Without limiting the application of Section 8.1(a), the Assignor agrees to pay, or reimburse the Collateral Agent for (if the Collateral Agent shall have incurred fees, costs or expenses because the Assignor shall have failed to comply with its obligations under this Agreement or any other Credit Document), any and all fees, costs and expenses of whatever kind or nature incurred in connection with the creation, preservation or protection of the Collateral Agent's Liens on, and security interest in, the Collateral, including, without limitation, all fees and taxes in connection with the recording or filing of instruments and documents in public offices, payment or discharge of any taxes or Liens upon or in respect of the Collateral, premiums for insurance with respect to the Collateral and all other fees, costs and expenses in connection with protecting, maintaining or preserving the Collateral and the Collateral Agent's interest therein, whether through judicial proceedings or otherwise, or in defending or prosecuting any actions, suits or proceedings arising out of or relating to the Collateral.

 

(c)           Without limiting the application of Section 8.1(a) or (b), the Assignor agrees to pay, indemnify and hold each Indemnitee harmless from and against any expenses which such Indemnitee may suffer, expend or incur in consequence of or growing out of any misrepresentation by the Assignor in this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents or in any statement or writing contemplated by or made or delivered pursuant to or in connection with this Agreement or any of the other Credit Documents.

 

(d)          If and to the extent that the obligations of the Assignor under this Section 8.1 are unenforceable for any reason, Assignor hereby agrees to make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of such obligations which is permissible under applicable law.

 

8.2          Indemnity Obligations Secured by Collateral; Survival

 

Any amounts paid by any Indemnitee as to which such Indemnitee has the right to reimbursement shall constitute Obligations secured by the Collateral.  The indemnity obligations of the Assignor contained in this Section 8 shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding the full payment of all the Notes issued under the Credit Agreement and all of the other Obligations and notwithstanding the discharge thereof.
