10. Release of Claims.

The foregoing release is intended to be, and is, a full, complete and general release in favor of Trustee Parties with respect to all claims, demands, actions, causes of action and other matters described therein, including specifically, without limitation, any claims, demands or causes of action based upon allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, breach of any alleged duty of fair dealing in good faith, economic coercion, usury, or any other theory, cause of action, occurrence, matter or thing which might result in liability upon Trustee Parties, arising or occurring on or before the Effective Date. Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, the release delivered herein shall exclude any and all claims, controversies, disputes, liabilities, obligations, demands, damages, debts, liens, actions and causes of action resulting solely from the fraudulent or intentional wrongful acts of the Trustee Parties. Borrower Parties understand and agree that the foregoing general release is in consideration for the agreements of Trustee contained herein and that they will receive no further consideration for such release.

11. Bankruptcy. Any other provision of this Agreement notwithstanding, the terms of the modification herein are expressly conditioned upon Trustee153s never having any payments under the Loan Documents recovered, avoided or set aside pursuant to any provision of the United States Bankruptcy Code or any non-bankruptcy preference, fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer avoidance or recovery statute. In the event that any payments from Borrower are ever recovered, avoided or set aside as aforesaid, the modification under the Loan Documents provided for herein shall be automatically void and of no further force or effect whatsoever, and Trustee shall, thereupon, be entitled to exercise all of the Trustee153s rights and remedies under the Loan Documents. In addition, any costs or expenses incurred by Trustee in defending its right to enforce the terms of the Loan Documents in effect without the modification herein, shall automatically be added to the Loan. This Section 11 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event only a portion of the payments made by Borrower is recovered, avoided or set aside, then Trustee shall be entitled to retain the remainder of the payments not so recovered, avoided or set aside, and apply said sum to the amount due under the Loan Documents.

12. Usury Savings Clause. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained elsewhere in this Agreement, Borrower and Trustee hereby agree that all agreements between them under this Agreement and with respect to the Loan, whether now existing or hereafter arising and whether written or oral, are expressly limited so that in no contingency or event whatsoever shall the amount paid, or agreed to be paid, to Trustee for the use, forbearance, or detention of the money loaned to Borrower, or for the performance or payment of any covenant or obligation contained herein or therein, exceed the maximum rate of interest under applicable law ("Maximum Rate"). If from any circumstance whatsoever, fulfillment of any provisions of this Agreement at the time performance of such provisions shall be due shall involve transcending the limit of validity prescribed by law, then, automatically, the obligation to be fulfilled shall be reduced to the limit of such validity, and if from any such circumstance Trustee should ever receive anything of value deemed interest by applicable law which would exceed the Maximum Rate, such excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal amount owing with respect to the Loan or on account of the other indebtedness secured by the Loan Documents and not to the payment of interest, or if such excessive interest exceeds the unpaid principal balance of the Loan and such other indebtedness, such excess shall be refunded to Borrower. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Trustee for the use, forbearance, or detention of the Loan and other indebtedness of Borrower to Trustee shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full term of such indebtedness until payment in full so that the actual rate of interest on account of all such indebtedness is uniform throughout the actual term of the Loan or does not exceed the Maximum Rate throughout the entire term of the Loan, as appropriate. The terms and provisions of this Section 12 shall control every other provision of this Agreement and all other agreements between Borrower and Trustee.

7


13. Further Assurance. Borrower agrees to execute from time to time such instruments, documents, or agreements as requested by Trustee to create, perfect, or protect Trustee153s liens and security interests referred to herein and any other liens and security interests of Trustee or in order to carry out the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any other agreement of Borrower with Trustee.

14. Expenses and Costs. Borrower shall be responsible for the payment of all fees and out-of-pocket disbursements incurred by Trustee in any way arising from or in connection with this Agreement, the Loan Documents, and/or the obligations, including, without limitation:

a. the fees of legal counsel for Trustee for the preparation, examination and approval of this Agreement and all documents in connection with this Agreement, and such fees and costs shall be paid on or before the Closing Date; and

b. all fees and out-of-pocket disbursements incurred by Trustee, including reasonable attorneys153 fees and appraisal fees, in any way arising from or in connection with any action taken by Trustee, to monitor, advise, enforce or collect the payments under the Loan Documents or enforce any other obligations of Borrower under this Agreement, the Loan Documents, or any other document or agreement arising from or relating to the business relationship between Trustee and Borrower or otherwise securing any obligations to Trustee, including, without limitations, any actions to lift the automatic stay or to otherwise in any way participate in any bankruptcy, reorganization or insolvency proceeding of Borrower any actions in relation to or in defense of any litigation instituted by Borrower, or any third-party against Trustee arising from or relating to this Agreement, the Loan Documents, or the business relationship between Borrower and Trustee, including any so-called "lender liability" actions.

e. Headings. The headings of the various paragraphs and sections in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and shall not be deemed to modify or restrict the terms or provisions hereof.

f. Right to Counsel. Borrower acknowledges that it has had full benefit and advice of counsel of its own selection, or the opportunity to obtain the benefit and advice of counsel of its own selection, in regard to understanding the terms, meaning and effect of this Agreement, and that this Agreement has been entered into by Borrower freely, voluntarily, with full knowledge, and without duress, and that in executing this Agreement, Borrower is relying on no other representations, either written or oral, express or implied, made to it by any other party hereto, and that the consideration hereunder received has been actual and adequate.
