REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

In order to induce Lenders to enter into this Agreement, Borrower represents and warrants to Lenders (which representations and warranties will survive the extensions of credit under this Agreement) that:

13


Section 4.01. Borrower153s Existence, Power and Authorization. Borrower is a corporation duly organized, legally existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Alaska and is duly qualified as a foreign company in all jurisdictions wherein the property it owns or the business it transacts make such qualification necessary. Borrower is duly authorized and empowered to execute, deliver and perform the Loan Documents to which it is a party. All action on the part of Borrower requisite for the due creation and execution of the Loan Documents to which it is a party has been duly and effectively taken. Borrower153s execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents to which it is a party do not require the consent or approval of any other Person, including without limitation any Governmental Authority. Borrower has reviewed the Loan Documents to which it is a party with counsel for Borrower and has had the opportunity to discuss the provisions thereof with the Lenders prior to execution. The Loan Documents to which Borrower is a party constitute valid and binding obligations of Borrower enforceable in accordance with their terms (except that enforcement may be subject to any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or applicable laws generally affecting the enforcement of creditors153 rights).

Section 4.02. No Legal Bar or Resultant Lien. The execution, delivery and performance of the Loan Documents to which Borrower is a party do not and will not violate (a) any provisions of Borrower153s articles of organization, bylaws or any other organizational documents; (b) any other material contract, indenture or agreement to which Borrower is a party or by which any of its property may be bound; or (c) any provision of law, regulation, order, injunction, judgment, decree or writ to which Borrower or any of its property is subject, except those violations that would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. The Loan Documents to which Borrower is a party will not result in or require the creation or imposition of any Lien upon any property now owned or hereafter acquired by Borrower other than as contemplated by this Agreement.

Section 4.03. Financial Condition; Solvency; Other Information.

(a) All audited financial statements of GCI delivered to Lenders fairly present the financial position of GCI and its consolidated subsidiaries in all material respects as of the date of such statements. To the knowledge of Borrower, since the close of the period covered by the latest audited financial statements delivered to Lenders, no event has occurred (including, without limitation, any litigation or administrative proceedings) and no condition exists or, is threatened, which (i) would reasonably be expected to render Borrower or any Guarantor unable to perform their obligations under the Loan Documents, or (ii) would constitute a Material Adverse Effect, or (iii) would constitute a Default hereunder.

(b) Borrower is Solvent and after consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents (including the making of the Loans and the distributions contemplated herein), and after giving effect to all obligations incurred by Borrower in connection herewith, Borrower will be Solvent.

(c) All financial projections given to Lenders were prepared in good faith based on facts and circumstances existing at the time of preparation. No other information, exhibit or report (other than projections) furnished by Borrower or any of its Affiliates to Lenders in connection with the negotiation of this Agreement taken as a whole contains any material misstatement of fact or fails to state a material fact necessary to make the statements contained therein in light of the circumstances under which they were made, not materially misleading.

14


Section 4.04. Taxes and Governmental Charges. Borrower has filed all tax returns and reports required to be filed and has paid all taxes, assessments, fees and other governmental charges levied upon it or upon its property or income which are due and payable, including interest and penalties, or has provided adequate reserves for the payment thereof.

Section 4.05. Defaults. Borrower is not in default under any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, agreement or other instrument to which Borrower is a party or by which it is bound, including without limitation the Construction Documents, which default would reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 4.06. Compliance With the Law. Borrower (a) is not in violation of any law, judgment, decree, order, ordinance, or governmental rule or regulation to which Borrower or any of its property is subject; and (b) has not failed to obtain any license, permit, franchise or other governmental authorization necessary to the ownership of any of its property or the conduct of the Business; in each case, which violation or failure could reasonably be anticipated to materially and adversely affect the business, prospects, profits, property or condition (financial or otherwise) of Borrower.

Section 4.07. ERISA. Borrower is in compliance in all material respects with the applicable provisions of ERISA with respect to any Plan, and no "reportable event," as such term is defined in Section 4043 of ERISA, has occurred with respect to any Plan of Borrower, within the six fiscal years preceding the Closing Date.

Section 4.08. Title to Property. Borrower has good title to the Collateral, free of all Liens except those created in favor of the Lenders and those permitted by this Agreement. Furthermore, Borrower has not heretofore conveyed or granted a Lien on or agreed to convey or grant a Lien on any Collateral in any way, except in favor of Lenders and Permitted Liens. The Borrower has or will have such title or leasehold interest, or other rights, in and to the Land owned, leased or used by it as is necessary or desirable to the conduct of the Business and the Project, and valid and legal title or leasehold interest in and to all of its personal property, as is necessary or desirable to the conduct of the Business and the Project.

Section 4.09. Environmental Matters. The Borrower is not in material violation of or subject to any existing, pending, or threatened investigation or inquiry by any Governmental Authority or to any remedial obligations under any applicable laws pertaining to health or the environment (hereinafter, sometimes collectively called "Applicable Environmental Laws"), including without limitation the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (as amended, hereinafter called "CERCLA"), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, as amended by the Used Oil Recycling Act of 1980, the Solid Waste Disposal Act Amendments of 1980, and the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (as amended, hereinafter called "RCRA"). Borrower has not obtained and is not required to obtain any permits, licenses or similar authorizations to construct, occupy, operate or use any buildings, improvements, fixtures and equipment forming a part of the Property by reason of any Applicable Environmental Laws, except as shall be obtained by Borrower in material accordance with all Applicable Environmental Laws. No hazardous substances or solid wastes have been disposed of or otherwise released on the Property, and the use which Borrower makes and intends to make of the Property will not result in the disposal or other

15


release of any hazardous substance or solid waste on or to the Property, except in material compliance with all Applicable Environmental Laws. The terms "hazardous substance" and "release" as used in this Agreement will have the meanings specified in CERCLA, and the terms "solid waste" and "disposal" (or "disposed") will have the meanings specified in RCRA; provided, in the event that the laws of the State of Alaska establish a meaning for "hazardous substance," "release," "solid waste," or "disposal" which is broader than that specified in either CERCLA or RCRA, such broader meaning will apply. No part of the Property related to the Project constitutes "wetlands," as such term is defined by applicable federal law, and except as has been obtained or shall be obtained in accordance with applicable law, no permit is needed for construction of the Project from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or any other applicable federal or state agency.

Section 4.10. Governmental Requirements. The Land and the Property will be acquired, developed, and utilized in material compliance with all current governmental requirements affecting such Land and the Property, including, without limitation, the DCCED Grant Agreement, if applicable, all current coastal zone protection, zoning and land use regulations, building codes and all restrictions and requirements imposed by applicable Governmental Authorities with respect to the acquisition of the Land, construction and acquisition and installation of the Improvements and other Property, and the contemplated use of the Improvements and other Property.

Section 4.11. Anti-Terrorism Laws.

(a) Neither Borrower nor any of its Affiliates is in material violation of any law relating to terrorism or money laundering ("Anti-Terrorism Laws"), including Executive Order No. 13224 on Terrorist Financing, effective September 24, 2001 (the "Executive Order"), and the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001, Public Law 10-56.

Section 4.12. New Markets Tax Credit Program Representations Warranties and Covenants. Lenders and Borrower believe that the Project will have a beneficial effect on economic development within the Low-Income Communities included in the Project Census Tracts. The Loans are intended to constitute QLICIs qualifying under the New Markets Tax Credit Program. The Lenders believe that the provision of private-sector capital investment as represented by the Loans on such terms will serve to stimulate economic opportunity and create jobs within the Low-Income Communities included in the Project Census Tracts. The Lenders have each received a sub-allocation of New Markets Tax Credits from the respective Allocatee. The availability of New Markets Tax Credits has enabled the Lenders to provide the Loans using terms and conditions that are flexible and non-conventional. To ensure compliance with the New Markets Tax Credit Program, Borrower agrees to make the representations, warranties, and covenants set forth in this Section 4.12 and in Section 5.18. The Lenders would not make the Loans without the representations, warranties and covenants set forth in this Agreement.

25


reason or on account of, or in connection with, (i) any misconduct of Borrower or any Default or Event of Default hereunder; (ii) any breach of any representation or covenant of Borrower in any of the Loan Documents; (iii) the acquisition, construction, reconstruction or alteration of the Property; (iv) any gross negligence of Borrower or any gross negligence or willful misconduct of any tenant, or any other occupant or invitee of the Property or any of their respective lenders, contractors, subcontractors, servants, directors, managers, officers, employees, licensees or invitees; (v) any accident, injury, death or damage to any person or property occurring in, on or about the Property or the Project or any street, drive, sidewalk, curb or passageway adjacent thereto, except to the extent that the same results directly from the willful misconduct or gross negligence of a Lender; (vi) any claim by a tenant pursuant to the terms of its lease, if any; (vii) any claim by any broker or lender of Borrower for the payment of a commission or fee by reason of the execution of this Agreement or the disbursement of the Loans; or (viii) any allegation or charge whatsoever of negligence, misfeasance, or nonfeasance of Lenders in whole or in part, pertaining to any defect in the Property, and particularly, any failure of Lenders or any lender, officer, employee or representative of Lenders, to note any defect in materials or workmanship or of physical conditions or failure to comply with the Plans and Specifications or any ordinances, statutes or other governmental requirements, or to call to the attention of any person whatsoever, or take any action, or to demand that any action be taken, with regard to any such defect or failure or lack of compliance. However, the foregoing indemnities shall not apply to any Covered Person to the extent the subject of the indemnification is caused by or arises solely and directly out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Covered Person.

(b) Any amount payable to a Covered Person under this Section 5.12 shall be due and payable upon demand therefor and receipt by Borrower of a statement setting forth in reasonable detail the amount claimed and the basis therefor. Borrower153s obligations under this Section 5.12 shall not be affected by the absence or unavailability of insurance covering the same or by the failure or refusal of any insurance carrier to perform any obligation on its part under any such policy of insurance. If any claim, action or proceeding is made or brought which is subject to the indemnity set forth in this Section 5.12, Borrower shall resist or defend against the same, in its own name or, if necessary, in the name of the applicable Covered Person, by attorneys for Borrower153s insurance carrier (if the same is covered by insurance) or otherwise by attorneys retained by Borrower. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the applicable Covered Person, in such Person153s discretion, unless it approves of the attorneys provided by Borrower or Borrower153s insurance carrier (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), may engage its own attorneys to resist or defend, or to assist therein, and Borrower shall pay, or, on demand, shall reimburse such Person for the payment of, all reasonable fees and disbursements of said attorneys. All obligations set forth in this Section 5.12 shall survive payment of the indebtedness secured hereby.

26


but not limited to the DCCED Grant Agreement, except any failure to observe or comply that would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(b) Upon request of the Lenders, Borrower shall deliver to Lenders copies of all permits, licenses, authorizations, certifications, and/or contracts that are required to construct and operate the Improvements, and any extensions, renewals, re-issuances, modifications or amendments thereof.

Section 5.14. Environmental Compliance and Indemnity.

(a) Borrower will not release (or permit the release of) any hazardous substance on the Property in material contravention of Applicable Environmental Laws. The terms "hazardous substances" and "release" will have the meanings defined in Section 4.09 hereof. In addition, Borrower will observe and comply with all Applicable Environmental Laws, in all material respects, including without limitation the removal from or under the Property constituting immovable property of any material amount of hazardous substances or solid wastes (as defined elsewhere in this Agreement). Borrower will give notice to the Lenders as soon as reasonably possible and in no event more than fifteen (15) days after it receives any compliance orders, environmental citations, or other notices from any Governmental Authority relating to any environmental condition relating to its properties or elsewhere for which it may have legal responsibility, with a full description thereof; Borrower agrees to take any and all reasonable steps and to perform any and all reasonable actions necessary or appropriate to promptly comply with any such citations, compliance orders or other Applicable Environmental Laws requiring it to remove, treat or dispose of such hazardous materials, wastes or conditions at the sole expense of Borrower and to provide Lenders with satisfactory evidence of such compliance; provided, that nothing contained herein will preclude Borrower from contesting any such compliance orders or citations if such contest is made in good faith, and appropriate reserves are established for the payment for the cost of compliance therewith. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, Borrower has informed the Lenders that it or its affiliated tenant intends to utilize in connection with routine business operational activities at the Property, commercial products generally available to the public or routinely used in Borrower153s business which contain varying degrees of hazardous substances that are permitted by Applicable Environmental Laws. The Lenders acknowledge such intended use and agree that such use shall not constitute a breach of the covenants and agreements set forth herein, provided such hazardous substances are used for their intended purpose in accordance with this Agreement and all Applicable Environmental Laws.

(b) Borrower will defend, indemnify and hold Lenders, their direct and indirect members and affiliates, and their respective directors, officers, members, lenders and employees harmless from and against all claims, demands, causes of action, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, costs of suit, reasonable attorneys153 fees and fees of expert witnesses) arising from or in connection with (i) the presence on or under the Property of any hazardous substances or solid wastes (as defined elsewhere in this Agreement), or any releases or discharges of any hazardous substances or solid wastes on, under or from the Property; (ii) any activity carried on or undertaken on or off the Property, whether prior to or during the term of this Agreement, and whether by Borrower or any predecessor in title or any officers,

27


employees, lender, contractors or subcontractors of Borrower or any predecessor in title, or any third persons at any time occupying or present on the Property, in connection with the handling, use, generation, manufacture, treatment, removal, storage, decontamination, clean up, transport or disposal of any hazardous substances or solid wastes at any time located or present on or under the Property; (iii) any breach of any environmental representation, warranty or covenant under the Loan Documents; or (iv) any loss sustained due to any portion of the Property being considered "wetlands," as such term is defined by applicable federal law. The foregoing indemnity will further apply to any residual contamination on or under the Property, or affecting any natural resources, and to any contamination of any property or natural resources arising in connection with the generation, use, handling, storage, transport or disposal of any such hazardous substances or solid wastes not undertaken in accordance with Applicable Environmental Laws; provided, that such indemnity will not apply to any releases that occur following the date that the Property is transferred by Borrower solely as a result of the actions of any other Person other than Borrower. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreements of Borrower hereunder, the provisions of this Section will survive the final payment of all Indebtedness and the termination of this Agreement and will continue thereafter in full force and effect.

Section 5.15. Construction Covenants. In addition to the covenants of Borrower otherwise set forth in this Agreement, Borrower hereby agrees that, so long as any part of the Indebtedness is outstanding, unless compliance shall have been waived in writing by Lenders, Borrower shall at all times comply with the following covenants:

(a) Commencement and Completion of Project. Borrower (i) has commenced and will hereafter cause to be prosecuted with diligence and continuity the permitting, site acquisition, component fabrication and purchase, construction of the Improvements, and the acquisition and installation of all equipment and other Property required for the Project, in accordance with the Construction Schedule, the Project Budget, and the Plans and Specifications; (ii) promptly correct or cause to be corrected any defect in the Property with respect to the Project, any material departure in the construction or installation of the Improvements and other Property with respect to the Project from the Plans and Specifications, governmental requirements, or any encroachment by any part of the Improvements or other Property with respect to the Project on any building line, easement, property line, or restricted area; (iii) cause the Project to be completed in good and workmanlike manner; and (iv) promptly notify Lenders of any lien filed by any Contractor, any subcontractor, supplier or laborer or of Borrower153s knowledge that any Contractor or any subcontractor, has failed to pay amounts due following the funding of any advance for the payment of same. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Project (or either of Phase I or Phase II of the Project) or an Alternative Qualified Project shall not be deemed to have been fully completed in accordance with this Agreement ("Completion" or "Completion of the Project") until all necessary certificates, licenses, consents and other approvals of Governmental Authorities have been issued or made with respect to the completion of the Project (or the applicable phase thereof), the Alternative Qualified Project, if applicable, and the operation of the Project or Alternative Qualified Project, as applicable. Borrower will use its best reasonable efforts to complete Phase I of the Project not later than the Scheduled Completion Date for Phase I and to complete Phase II of the Project not later than the Scheduled Completion Date of Phase II of the Project.

(b) Construction Schedule. Borrower shall promptly notify Lenders of any modifications to the Construction Schedule which may cause any material delay in the expenditure of funds from the Disbursement Account or in the Scheduled Completion Date for either phase of the Project; provided that such notice shall not constitute a waiver by the Lenders of any requirements set forth in the Loan

28


Documents. Upon the occurrence of any material delays that may cause Borrower not to be in compliance with any of its representations, warranties or covenants in Section 4.18 or Section 5.18 hereof, if any proceeds remain in the Disbursement Account, Borrower shall designate one or more of the Alternative Qualified Project(s) to which proceeds in the Disbursement Account are to be applied (to the extent necessary

to avoid or cure such non-compliance), and subject to (i) Lenders153 approval (not to be unreasonably withheld) of the plans and specifications, budget, and expenditure and completion timeline for such Alternative Qualified Project(s), (ii) receipt by Lenders of an agreed-upon procedures report similar in form to the QALICB Report, an update to the Financial Projections, and a legal opinion confirming that the application of funds to such Alternative Qualified Project(s) should not impair the status of the Loans as QLICIs, and (iii) execution by Borrower and Guarantor of such amendments or supplements to this Agreement and/or the other Loan Documents as Lenders may reasonably require to reflect the parties153 rights and obligations with respect to such Alternative Qualified Project(s), Lenders shall permit funds in the Disbursement Account (to the extent provided immediately above) to be used for costs and expenses related to such Alternative Qualified Project(s), in accordance with the plans and specifications, budget, and expenditure and completion timeline approved by Lenders. In the event that, following any such material delays, one or more Alternative Qualified Projects are not approved for funding in a manner and on a timeline that, in the judgment of Lenders, would avoid or cure such non-compliance with Borrower153s representations, warranties, or covenants in Section 4.18 or Section 5.18 hereof, such circumstance shall be deemed an Event of Default hereunder.

(c) Land. Borrower shall acquire rights to the Land as required to complete the Project and operate the Project thereon in accordance with all applicable governmental requirements for the useful life of the Project, and shall provide evidence thereof to Lenders, upon request.

(d) Plans and Specifications.

The Plans and Specifications shall be delivered to the Construction Inspector as available and upon request, to the Disbursing Agent, the Investor, and/or the Lenders.

(e) Improvements and Property. Neither the construction of the Improvements nor the installation or use of the Property with respect to the Project, nor the operation of the Project when the Project has been completed, will materially violate (a) any applicable federal, state or local law, statute, code, ordinance, order, rule, or any regulation and interpretation thereof; or (b) any building permits, restrictions or record, or any agreement affecting the Property with respect to the Project or any part thereof, including without limitation, the Construction Documents. Without limiting the foregoing, all authorizations, approvals,

29


consents, licenses, permits, exemptions of, registrations and filings with, and reports to a Governmental Authority required to complete the Project in accordance with the Plans and Specifications and to operate the Project thereon have been or shall be obtained prior to the commencement of any work for which such Governmental Approval is required. All permits and licenses required for the use or operation of the Project which cannot be obtained until construction or installation of the Improvements or Property is completed can be obtained if the Improvements and Property are completed and installed in accordance with the Plans and Specifications.

Section 5.16. Appraisal. Lenders shall have the right to have the Borrower153s Property and/or the Borrower153s going concern value appraised at Borrower153s expense any time during the term of the Loans if (a) an Event of Default has occurred, (b) Borrower requests an extension or material modification of the Loans (including but not limited to any request to apply Loan proceeds to any Alternative Qualified Investment), or (c) any material damage or destruction of the Property occurs.

Section 8.01. Events of Default. Any of the following events will be considered an "Event of Default" as that term is used herein.

(a) Payments Under the Notes. Borrower fails to make payment when due of any principal, interest or other payment obligation due on the Notes, or under the Loan Documents, and such failure remains more than five days after written notice of non-payment (which notice may be sent by ordinary mail, fax or e-mail) is given by the Lenders to Borrower.

(b) Representations and Warranties. Any representation or warranty made by Borrower or Guarantor contained in the Loan Documents proves to have been incorrect in any material respect as of the date thereof; or any representation, or certificate furnished or made to the Lenders by any Person (other than a Lender) under the Loan Documents proves to have been untrue in any material respect as of the date stated or certified, and such Default continues uncured for a period of 15 days after written notice of such Default (specifying the Default) is given by Lenders to the Borrower or Guarantor.

(c) Other Indebtedness to the Lenders. Borrower defaults in the payment of any amounts due to any of the Lenders relating to any Debt of Borrower to any of the Lenders (other than the Loans) in excess of $500,000, and any grace period applicable to such default has elapsed, and such Default continues uncured for a period of 15 days after written notice of such Default (specifying the Default) is given by the applicable Lender to Borrower.

38


(d) Other Debt to Another Lender. Borrower defaults in the payment of any amounts due to any Person (other than to a Lender) relating to any Debt of Borrower to any Person (other than a Lender), which Debt is in excess of $500,000 and any grace period applicable to such default has elapsed.

(e) Involuntary Bankruptcy or Receivership Proceedings. A receiver, conservator, liquidator or trustee of Borrower or Guarantor, or of any substantial portion of its property is appointed by order or decree of any court or agency or supervisory authority having jurisdiction; or an order for relief is entered against Borrower or Guarantor under the Federal Bankruptcy Code; or any material portion of any property of Borrower or Guarantor is sequestered by court order and such order remains in effect for more than 30 days after such party obtains knowledge thereof; or a petition is filed against Borrower or Guarantor under any state, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency, readjustment of debt, dissolution, liquidation or receivership law of any jurisdiction, whether now or hereafter in effect, and such petition is not dismissed within 60 days.

(f) Voluntary Petitions. Borrower or Guarantor files a case under the Federal Bankruptcy Code or seeks relief under any provision of any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency, readjustment of debt, dissolution or liquidation law of any jurisdiction, whether now or hereafter in effect, or consents to the filing of any case or petition against it under any such law.

(g) Assignments for Benefit of Creditors. Borrower or Guarantor makes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or admits in writing its inability to pay its debts generally as they become due, or consents to the appointment of a receiver, trustee or liquidator of Borrower or Guarantor, or of all or any substantial part of Borrower153s or Guarantor153s property.

(h) Undischarged Judgments. Judgment for the payment of money in excess of $500,000 (which is not covered by insurance) is rendered by any Governmental Authority against Borrower, and Borrower does not discharge the same or provide for its discharge in accordance with its terms, or procure a stay of execution thereof within 30 days from the date of entry thereof, and within said 30-day period or such longer period during which execution of such judgment will have been stayed, appeal therefrom and cause the execution thereof to be stayed during such appeal while providing such reserves therefor as may be required under generally accepted accounting principles, and such Default continues uncured for a period of 15 days after written notice of such Default (specifying the Default) is given by the Lenders to Borrower.

(i) Delay in Scheduled Completion Date. Work on the Project (or an Alternative Qualified Project) shall be substantially abandoned, or shall, by reason of Borrower153s fault, be discontinued for a period of more than sixty (60) days, or construction shall be delayed for any reason whatsoever to the extent that Completion of Phase I of the Project (or an Alternative Qualified Project) cannot, in the reasonable judgment of Lenders, be accomplished on or before the applicable Scheduled Completion Date. If there is a delay that would otherwise result in an Event of Default under the foregoing provisions, then if (i) the Borrower proposes

39


one or more Alternative Qualified Projects that would utilize the Loan funds prior to the Phase I Scheduled Completion Date and consistent with NMTC Program Requirements (as determined by Lenders in good faith, based on the advice of counsel) and provides all due diligence documentation for such Alternative Qualified Project(s) within thirty (30) days following written notice, and (ii) Lenders shall have approved such Alternative Qualified Project(s) (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) and Borrower and Guarantors shall have entered into any amendments to the Loan Documents (and any other transaction documents) reasonably required by Lenders to reflect the use of Loan proceeds to finance such Alternative Qualified Project(s) within sixty (60) days following such written notice, such delay shall not constitute an Event of Default hereunder.

Any Loan Document shall, at any time, cease to be in full force and effect or shall be judicially declared null and void, or the validity or enforceability thereof shall be contested by Borrower or the Lenders shall cease to have a valid and perfected security interest having the priority contemplated thereunder in the collateral described therein, other than by action or inaction of any Lender, if any of the foregoing shall remain unremedied for 10 days or more after receipt or notice thereof to Borrower from Lender.

(k) Other Covenants. Borrower or Guarantor defaults in the observance or performance of any of the covenants or agreements contained in the Loan Documents, to be kept or performed by Borrower or Guarantor, as applicable (other than a default under the other Subsections of this Section 8.01), and such default continues unremedied for a period of 30 days after notice thereof being given by Lenders to Borrower or Guarantor, as applicable; provided, that if it is not reasonably feasible for Borrower or Guarantor to cure such default within 30 days, so long as Borrower or Guarantor has commenced efforts to cure within such 30-day period and is diligently pursuing efforts to cure, Borrower or Guarantor, shall have an additional 60 days in which to cure such default. Borrower153s and Guarantor153s rights to cure will be applicable only to curable defaults.

(l) Financial Condition. Borrower or Guarantor shall incur or permit to exist a change to its financial condition that has or would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect upon its ability to perform its obligations under the Loan Documents.

Section 8.02. Remedies. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any Event of Default, Lenders may, in their sole discretion, pursue any one or more of the following remedies concurrently or successively, it being the intent hereof that none of such remedies shall be to the exclusion of any other:

(a) take possession of the Collateral pursuant to the Collateral Documents;

(b) perform any or all of Borrower153s covenants and agreements hereunder, under any of the other Loan Documents, or under any lease or sublease;

(c) declare the entire indebtedness evidenced by the Notes, without demand or notice of any kind (which are hereby expressly waived) to be due and payable at once and, in such event, such indebtedness and obligations shall become immediately due and payable;

(d) set off any sum due to or incurred by Lenders against all deposits and credits of Borrower with, and any and all claims of Borrower against, Lenders. Such right shall exist whether or not Lenders shall have made any demand hereunder or under any other Loan Documents, whether or not said sums, or any part thereof, or deposits and credits held for the account of Borrower is or are matured or unmatured, and

40


regardless of the existence or adequacy of any collateral, guaranty or any other security, right or remedy available to Lenders. Lenders agree that, as promptly as is reasonably possible after the exercise of any such setoff right, they shall notify Borrower of the exercise of such setoff right; provided, however, that the failure of Lenders to provide such notice shall not affect the validity of the exercise of such setoff rights. Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed a waiver or prohibition of or restriction on Lenders to all rights of banker153s lien, setoff and counterclaim available pursuant to law; and

(e) exercise any or all remedies specified herein and in the other Loan Documents, and/or exercise any other remedies which it may have therefor at law, in equity or under statute.

Any expense incurred by the Lenders, including but not limited to the Lead CDE pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement, in the performance of any of the foregoing remedies, shall be deemed to be part of the Indebtedness of Borrower. Waveland XVI has been appointed to serve as Lead CDE and enforce remedies on behalf of the Lenders pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement, unless and until a successor is appointed as the Lead CDE thereunder, with notice to the Borrower. The Lenders acknowledge and agree that the Guarantors and Borrower shall be entitled to rely on any communication received by them from the Lead CDE in connection with the exercise of any of the foregoing remedies and that neither the Guarantors nor Borrower shall have any obligation to confirm such authority with any Lender unless such Lender has notified the Guarantors and/or Borrower in writing to the contrary.

Section 9.10. Successors and Assigns; Participants.

(a) Subject to Section 9.10(b) and (d) below, all covenants and agreements contained by or on behalf of Borrower in the Loan Documents will bind its successors and assigns and will inure to the benefit of the Lenders and their respective successors and assigns.

(b) This Agreement is only for the benefit of the Lenders and for their Permitted Assignees (defined below). "Permitted Assignees" shall mean (i) the Fund and (ii) only upon and during the continuance of an Event of Default, subject to Section 9.10(d) below, such other Person or Persons as may from time-to-time become or be the holders of any of the Indebtedness, and this Agreement will be transferable and negotiable, with the same force and effect only to Permitted Assignees, it being understood that, upon the transfer or assignment by the Lenders of any of the Indebtedness to a Permitted Assignee, the legal holder of such Indebtedness which is a Permitted Assignee will have all of the rights granted to the Lenders under this Agreement.

(c) Subject to Section 9.10(d) below, Borrower hereby recognizes and agrees that the Lenders may, from time-to-time, one or more times, transfer all or any portion of the Indebtedness to one or more third parties; provided that such third parties are Permitted Assignees. Subject to Section 9.01(d) below, Borrower specifically (i) consents to all such transfers and assignments and waives any subsequent notice of and right to consent to any such transfers and assignments as may be provided under applicable Alaska law; (ii) agrees that the purchaser of a participation interest in the Indebtedness that is a Permitted Assignee will be considered as the absolute owner of a percentage interest of such Indebtedness and that such a purchaser will have all of the rights granted to the purchaser under any participation agreement governing the sale of such a participation interest; (iii) waives any right of offset that Borrower may have against such lender and/or any purchaser of such a participation interest in the Indebtedness that is a Permitted Assignee, and unconditionally agrees that either such lender or such a purchaser may enforce Borrower153s Indebtedness under this Agreement, irrespective of the failure or insolvency of such lender or any such purchaser; (iv) agrees that any purchaser of a participation interest in the Indebtedness that is a Permitted Assignee may exercise any and all rights of counter claim, setoff, banker153s lien and other liens with respect to any and all moneys owing to Borrower; and (v) agrees that, upon any transfer of all or any portion of the Indebtedness to a Permitted Assignee, such lender may transfer and deliver any and all collateral securing repayment of such Indebtedness to the transferee of such Indebtedness and such collateral will secure any and all of the Indebtedness in favor of such a transferee, and after any such transfer has taken place, such lender will be fully discharged from any and all future liability and responsibility to Borrower with respect to such collateral, and the transferee thereafter will be vested with all the powers, rights and duties with respect to such collateral.

(d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth herein, prior to a transfer of all or any portion of the Loans by any of the Lenders (excluding transfers to the Fund), the applicable Lenders shall first offer GCI, Inc., in writing, the right to purchase the Loans (the "Loan Purchase Offer"). The purchase price ("Purchase Price") shall be equal to the consideration to be paid by the transferee. The written Loan Purchase Offer sent to GCI, Inc. (at the Borrower153s address set forth herein) shall set forth the calculation and supporting documentation of the Purchase Price as of the date of such Loan Purchase Offer. GCI, Inc. shall have fifteen (15) Business Days following receipt of a Lender153s Loan Purchase Offer in which to accept, in writing, the offer to purchase such Loans, and the loan documents evidencing or relating to such Loans. If GCI,

44


Inc. fails to accept the Loan Purchase Offer in writing within such period, GCI, Inc. shall be deemed to have rejected the Loan Purchase Offer. If GCI, Inc. accepts the Loan Purchase Offer within such period, GCI, Inc. shall purchase such Loans (or shall cause one of its Affiliates to do so), and the loan documents evidencing or relating to such Loans, on the date which is fifteen (15) Business Days following such acceptance (the "Loan Purchase Date"). On the Loan Purchase Date, (i) the Lender shall assign to the GCI, Inc. (or its designated Affiliate) the promissory note(s) evidencing such Loans, and the loan documents evidencing or relating to such Loans, such assignment (the "Assignment") to be in writing, in recordable form, and made without recourse, representation or warranty other than as to the amount of the then outstanding balance of such Loans, including accrued and unpaid interest, and the amount of all other monetary obligations then owing under such Loans, and the loan documents, (ii) the applicable Lenders shall deliver the original Note(s) and the loan documents evidencing or relating to such Loans to GCI, Inc.
