principal amount of the Loan shall not exceed the Maximum Loan Amount at any

         Documents would constitute, an Event of Default or an Acceleration
         Event;

                  (ii)     Debtor shall be in compliance with each of the
         covenants set forth in Section 5;

                  (iii)    the outstanding principal balance of the Loan,
         together with the amount of the requested Advance, must not exceed the
         Maximum Loan Amount; and

         D.       The Loan shall bear interest at a variable rate of interest as
set forth in the Note and shall be payable in arrears on the first day of each
month based on the then outstanding principal balance of the Note. Debtor shall
have the right to prepay (without premium or penalty) the Note in whole or in
part at any time provided that any such prepayment shall only be made on a
regularly scheduled payment date upon not less than 10 days prior written notice
from Debtor to FFCA. Debtor shall pay on the Maturity Date, and there shall
become absolutely due and payable on the Maturity Date, the outstanding
principal amount of the Loan and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon. E. As
security for the Loan, Debtor agrees to pledge its interest in the Collateral
pursuant to the Security Agreement. In addition, Debtor will execute and deliver
the Negative Pledges. A Negative Pledge will be recorded in the real estate
records of each county where each of the Premises is located.

Agreement shall be paid by Debtor, including, without limitation, the attorneys'
fees of Debtor and the reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses of FFCA.

         F.       FFCA's obligation to provide the Loan is further subject to
the delivery to FFCA of Counsel's opinion in form and substance reasonably
satisfactory to FFCA.

         G.       The Fee shall be paid at the time of each Advance from each
Advance and shall be deemed nonrefundable and fully earned with each Advance.

                           (i)      Financial Statements. Within 45 days after
                  the end of each fiscal quarter and within 120 days after the
                  end of each fiscal year of Debtor, Debtor shall deliver to
                  FFCA complete financial statements of Debtor including a
                  balance sheet, profit and loss statement, cash flow statement
                  and all other related schedules for the fiscal period then
                  ended. All such financial statements shall be prepared in
                  accordance with generally accepted accounting principles,
                  consistently applied from period to period, and shall be
                  certified to be accurate and complete by Debtor (or the
                  Treasurer or other appropriate officer of Debtor). Debtor
                  understands that FFCA is relying upon such financial
                  statements and Debtor represents that such reliance is
                  reasonable. The financial statements delivered to FFCA need
                  not be audited, but Debtor shall deliver to FFCA copies of any
                  audited financial statements of Debtor which may be prepared,
                  as soon as they are available.

                           (ii)     Event of Default or Acceleration Event.
                  Promptly, but in any event within five days, after Debtor
                  becomes aware of an Event of Default or an Acceleration Event,
                  written notification to an officer of FFCA specifying the
                  nature and period of existence thereof and what action Debtor
                  is taking or proposes to take with respect thereto.

                           (iii)    Litigation. Within ten days after Debtor
                  becomes aware of any action, suit or proceeding pending or
                  threatened in writing against or involving Debtor and/or
                  Debtor's properties, except for those actions, suits or
                  proceedings (1) for which damages of less than $250,000 have
                  been sought, threatened or are likely to be incurred and (2)
                  which Debtor in good faith determines will be covered by its
                  insurance (including worker's compensation claims), Debtor
                  shall notify FFCA of such action, suit or proceeding and in
                  such notice specify the nature thereof, whether the alleged
                  liability therein is covered by insurance then in effect and,
                  if so covered, the monetary coverage thereof, and what action
                  Debtor is taking or proposes to take with respect thereto.

                           (iv)     Certificates. At the time of each Advance, a
                  certificate of an officer of Debtor, substantially in the form
                  attached hereto as Exhibit B.

                           (v)      Auditors' Reports. Promptly upon receipt
                  thereof, a copy of each report submitted to Debtor by its
                  independent accountants in connection with any annual, interim
                  or special audit made by it of the books of Debtor.

   10
                           (vi)     Other Information. Debtor shall deliver to
                  FFCA promptly after the receipt of written request therefor
                  information concerning Debtor requested by FFCA that is
                  required to satisfy all requirements applicable to FFCA
                  pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and all other
                  regulatory laws applicable to FFCA or to which FFCA is subject
                  or bound.

                  D.       Payment of Taxes, Etc. Unless Debtor shall contest
         the amount or validity thereof in the manner described below, Debtor
         shall pay all taxes, assessments and governmental charges or levies
         imposed upon it or upon its income or profits, or upon any properties
         belonging to it, prior to the date on which penalties attach thereto,
         and all lawful claims which, if unpaid, might become a lien upon any of
         its properties. Debtor may, at its own expense, contest or cause to be
         contested such taxes, assessments, governmental charges or levies or
         other claims (i) in good faith, (ii) by proper proceedings, and (iii)
         against which adequate reserves in accordance with generally accepted
         accounting principles are being maintained.

                  E.       Organization of Debtor. Debtor will continue to be a
         corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under
         the laws of its jurisdiction and qualified to do business in any
         jurisdiction where such qualification is required.

         shall maintain in full force and effect all required licenses, permits,
         consents and approvals, both governmental and private, to use and
         operate its assets and conduct its business in the intended manner.

                  G.       Use of Proceeds. Debtor shall use the proceeds of the
         Loan for (i) the purchase of interests of minority owners of Debtor,
         (ii) working capital and (iii) construction or renovation of P.F.
         Chang's China Bistro restaurants.

                  H.       Debt. Debtor shall not, and shall not permit any
         Subsidiary to, incur, create, assume or permit to exist any Debt,
         except (a) Debt to FFCA or Affiliates of FFCA; (b) Debt incurred
         pursuant to trade accounts arising in the ordinary course of business
         that are not past due by more than 30 days; (c) letters of credit for
         deposits not to exceed $15,000.00 each and (d) existing Debt described
         on the attached Exhibit C and any extensions, substitutions or renewals
         thereof.

                  I.       Fundamental Changes. Debtor shall not consolidate
         with or merge into any Person or permit any Person to merge into it;
         provided that the Companies may enter into a consolidation or merger
         with any person if (i) the survivor formed by or resulting from such
         consolidation or merger is the Companies and (ii) at the time of such
         consolidation or merger and immediately after giving effect thereto no
         Event of Default or Acceleration Event shall have occurred and be
         continuing.

                  J.       Disposition of Assets. Without the prior written
         consent of FFCA, Debtor shall not, directly or indirectly, sell,
         assign, lease, transfer or otherwise dispose of all or substantially
         all of its assets (other than in the ordinary course of business for
         full and fair consideration).

                  K.       No New Subsidiaries. Without the prior written
         consent of FFCA, Debtor shall not, and shall not permit any of its
         Subsidiaries to, acquire, incorporate or otherwise organize any
         Subsidiary, which was not in existence as of the Effective Date.

                  L.       Transactions With Affiliates. Without the prior
         written consent of FFCA, Debtor will not enter into, and will not
         permit any Subsidiary to enter into, any transaction, including,
         without limitation, the purchase, sale, or exchange of property or the
         rendering of any service, with any Affiliate of Debtor or such
         Subsidiary, except transactions for fair value in accordance with
         reasonable commercial standards.

                  M.       Maintenance of Assets. Debtor shall maintain, keep

                  N.       Amendment of Joint Venture Agreements. Without the
         prior written approval of FFCA in its sole and absolute discretion,
         Debtor shall not amend or terminate any of the Joint Venture Agreements
         or the Management Agreements nor shall it permit any of the Joint
         Venture Agreements or the Management Agreements to be amended or
         terminated.

                  O.       Title; First Priority Lien. Debtor shall maintain

         leasehold interests in, as applicable, the Premises, free and clear of
         all liens, encumbrances, charges and other exceptions to title.

         6.       TRANSACTION CHARACTERIZATION. This Agreement is a contract to
extend a financial accommodation (as such term is used in the Code) for the
benefit of Debtor. It is the intent of the parties hereto that the business
relationship created by this Agreement, the Note and the other Loan Documents is
solely that of creditor and debtor and has been entered into by both parties in
reliance upon the economic and legal bargains contained in the Loan Documents.
None of the agreements contained in the Loan Documents is intended, nor shall
the same be deemed or construed, to create a partnership between Debtor and
FFCA, to make them joint venturers, to make Debtor an agent, legal
representative, partner, subsidiary or employee of FFCA, nor to make FFCA in any
way responsible for the debts, obligations or losses of Debtor.

         7.       DEFAULT AND REMEDIES. A. Each of the following shall be deemed
an event of default by Debtor, after notice, to the extent required hereunder,
and after the expiration of any applicable grace or cure period without the cure
thereof (each, an "Event of Default"):

                  (1)      If any representation or warranty of Debtor set forth
         in any of the Loan Documents is false in any material respect when made
         or becomes false in any material respect, or if Debtor renders any
         materially false statement or account;

                  (2)      If any principal, interest or other monetary sum due
         under the Note or any other Loan Document is not paid within five days
         from the date when due and FFCA shall have given notice of such failure
         to Debtor and such failure shall not have been cured by Debtor within
         five days from the delivery of such notice;


                                       11
   12
                  (3)      If Debtor fails to observe or perform any of the
         other covenants (except as otherwise provided below), conditions, or
         obligations of this Agreement other than the covenants in Sections
         5.B., 5.H., 5.I, 5.J, 5.N and 5.O of this Agreement or there is a
         breach or default under any other Loan Document beyond any applicable
         notice or cure period; provided, however, if any such event does not
         involve the payment of any monetary sum, is not the result of a willful
         or intentional act or omission of Debtor, does not place any rights or
         property of FFCA in immediate jeopardy, and is within the reasonable
         power of Debtor to promptly cure after receipt of notice thereof, all
         as determined by FFCA in its reasonable discretion, then such event
         shall not constitute an Event of Default hereunder, unless otherwise
         expressly provided herein, unless and until FFCA shall have given
         Debtor notice thereof and a period of 30 days shall have elapsed,
         during which period Debtor may correct or cure such event, upon failure
         of which an Event of Default shall be deemed to have occurred hereunder
         (except as otherwise provided in the following sentence) without
         further notice or demand of any kind being required. If such
         nonmonetary event cannot reasonably be cured within such 30-day period,
         as determined by FFCA in its reasonable discretion, and Debtor is
         diligently pursuing a cure of such event, then an Event of Default
         shall not be deemed to have occurred hereunder upon the expiration of
         such 30-day period and Debtor shall have a reasonable period to cure
         such event beyond such 30-day period, which shall not exceed 90 days
         after receiving notice of the event from FFCA. If Debtor shall fail to
         correct or cure such event within such 90-day period, an Event of
         Default shall be deemed to have occurred hereunder without further
         notice or demand of any kind being required;

                  (4)      If Debtor fails to observe or perform any of the
         covenants in Sections 5.B, 5.H, 5.I, 5.J, 5.N or 5.O of this Agreement;
         or

                  (5)      If Debtor becomes insolvent within the meaning of the
         Code, files or notifies FFCA that it intends to file a petition under
         the Code, initiates a proceeding under any similar law or statute
         relating to bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, winding up or
         adjustment of debts (collectively, an "Action"), becomes the subject of
         either an involuntary Action or petition under the Code without such
         involuntary Action or petition being dismissed within 30 days of filing
         or, if Debtor is diligently proceeding to dismiss such petition, such
         longer period of time as if required, but in no event shall such longer
         period of time be greater than 90 days, or is not generally paying its
         debts as the same become due.

                  B.       Upon and during the continuance of an Event of
         Default, subject to the limitations, notices and cure periods set forth
         in subsection A, or an Acceleration Event, FFCA shall have no
         obligation to fund any Advance to Debtor and FFCA may declare all
         obligations of Debtor under the Note, this Agreement and any other Loan
         Document to be due and payable, and the same shall thereupon become due
         and payable without any presentment, demand, protest or notice of any
         kind except as expressly provided herein. Thereafter, FFCA may
         exercise, at its option, concurrently, successively or in any
         combination, all remedies available at law or in equity, including
         without limitation any one or more of the remedies available under the
         Note or any other Loan Document. Neither the acceptance of this
         Agreement nor its enforcement shall prejudice or in any manner affect
         FFCA's right to realize upon or enforce any other security now or
         hereafter held by FFCA, it being agreed that FFCA shall be entitled to
         enforce this Agreement and any other security now or hereafter held by
         FFCA in such order and manner as it may in its absolute discretion


                                       12
   13
         determine. No remedy herein conferred upon or reserved to FFCA is
         intended to be exclusive of any other remedy given hereunder or now or
         hereafter existing at law or in equity or by statute. Every power or
         remedy given by any of the Loan Documents to FFCA, or to which FFCA may
         be otherwise entitled, may be exercised, concurrently or independently,
         from time to time and as often as may be deemed expedient by FFCA.

         8.       ASSIGNMENTS BY FFCA. FFCA may assign in whole or in part its
rights under this Agreement. Upon any unconditional assignment of FFCA's entire
right and interest hereunder, FFCA shall automatically be relieved, from and
after the date of such assignment, of liability for the performance of any
obligation of FFCA contained herein arising after the date of the assignment
provided that any assignee shall be bound by all of FFCA's obligations hereunder
accruing from and after the date of such assignment.

         9.       INDEMNITY. Debtor agrees to indemnify, hold harmless and
defend FFCA and each of its directors, officers, shareholders, employees,
successors, assigns, agents, experts, licensees, affiliates, lenders, mortgagees
and trustees, as applicable (collectively, the "Indemnified Parties"), from and
against any and all losses, costs, claims, liabilities, damages and expenses,
including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees (collectively,
"Losses"), arising as the result of a breach of any of the representations,
warranties, covenants, agreements or obligations of Debtor set forth in this
Agreement, but excluding Losses suffered by an Indemnified Party directly
arising out of such Indemnified Party's gross negligence or willful misconduct.

         10.      MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS.

                  A.       Notices. All notices, consents, approvals or other

         absolute and without any exception whatsoever.

                  E.       Severability. The provisions of this Agreement shall
         be deemed severable. If any part of this Agreement shall be held
         unenforceable, the remainder shall remain in full force and effect, and
         such unenforceable provision shall be reformed by such court so as to
         give maximum legal effect to the intention of the parties as expressed
         therein.

                  F.       Construction Generally. This is an agreement between
         parties who are experienced in sophisticated and complex matters

         this Agreement and is entered into by both parties in reliance upon the
         economic and legal bargains contained herein and shall be interpreted
         and construed in a fair and impartial manner without regard to such
         factors as the party which prepared the instrument, the relative
         bargaining powers of the parties or the domicile of any party. Debtor
         and FFCA were each represented by legal counsel competent in advising
         them of their obligations and liabilities hereunder.

                  G.       Other Documents. Each of the parties agrees to sign

         Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its
         reasonable attorneys' fees and other costs in addition to any other
         relief to which it may be entitled. References in this Agreement to the
         attorneys' fees and/or costs of a party shall mean both the reasonable
         fees and costs of independent outside counsel retained by such party
         with respect to this transaction and the reasonable fees and costs of
         the party's in-house counsel incurred in connection with this
         transaction.

         Agreement by Debtor and FFCA, the Commitment shall be deemed null and
         void and of no further force and effect and the terms and conditions of

                      AMENDED AND RESTATED PROMISSORY NOTE


                                                       Dated as of June 29, 1998
$20,000,000.00                                               Scottsdale, Arizona


         THIS AMENDED AND RESTATED PROMISSORY NOTE (this "Note") executed by
P.F. CHANG'S CHINA BISTRO, INC., a Delaware corporation ("Debtor"), amends and
restates that certain Promissory Note dated as of October , 1997 in the
principal amount of $10,000,000.00, payable to FRANCHISE FINANCE CORPORATION OF
AMERICA, a Delaware corporation ("FFCA").

         Debtor, for value received, hereby promises to pay to FFCA, whose
address is 17207 North Perimeter Drive, Scottsdale, Arizona 85255, or order, on
or before the Maturity Date (as defined below), the principal sum of TWENTY
MILLION AND NO/100 DOLLARS ($20,000,000.00), or such much thereof as may be
outstanding from time to time, in accordance with that certain Amended and
Restated Revolving Line of Credit Loan Agreement dated as of the date of this
Note between Debtor and FFCA, as such agreement may be amended from time to time
(the "Loan Agreement").

         Initially capitalized terms which are not otherwise defined in this
Note shall have the meanings set forth in the Loan Agreement. The following
terms shall have the following meanings for all purposes of this Note:

                  "Applicable Margin" means an annual percentage equal to 3.50%.

                  "Adjustable Rate" means an annual interest rate equal to the
         sum of the Adjustable Rate Basis plus the Applicable Margin.

                  "Adjustable Rate Basis" means, for any Interest Period, the
         annual interest rate (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the nearest
         1/100th of one percent) appearing on Telerate Page 3750 (or any
         successor page) as the London interbank offered rate for deposits in
         dollars at approximately 11:000 a.m. (London time) on the Adjustable
         Rate Reset Date for a term comparable to such Interest Period. If for
         any reasons such rate is not available, the term "Adjustable Rate
         Basis" shall mean, for any Interest Period, the annual interest rate
         (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the nearest 1/100th of one percent)
         appearing on Reuters Screen LIBO Page as the London interbank offered
         rate for deposits in dollars at approximately 11:00 a.m. (London time)
         on the Adjustable Rate Reset Date for a term comparable to such
         Interest Period provided, however, if more than one rate is specified
         on the Reuters Screen LIBO Page, the applicable rate shall be the
         arithmetic mean of all such rates. Notwithstanding the provisions of
         the foregoing two sentences, if, the annual interest rate charge to
         FFCA under its then existing LIBOR based credit facility (the "FFCA
         Credit Facility") is determined by a methodology other than as
         described in such sentences, the Adjustable Rate Basis shall be
         determined in accordance with the methodology for determining the
         annual interest rate under the FFCA Credit Facility.
   20
                  "Adjustable Rate Reset Date" means the fifteenth day of each
         calendar month, or the next succeeding Business Day if such day is not
         a Business Day, prior to the next Interest Period.

                  "Business Day" means any day on which FFCA is open for
         business in the State of Arizona, other than a Saturday, Sunday or a
         legal holiday.

                  "Interest Period" means (i) initially, the period beginning on
         the date of this Note and ending on the last day of the calendar month
         in which such date occurs, and (ii) thereafter, the period beginning on
         the first day of the calendar month and ending on the last day of such
         calendar month.

                  "Maturity Date" means July 1  , 1999.

         Debtor shall pay FFCA interest on the outstanding principal amount of
this Note at the Adjustable Rate, on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual
number of days elapsed, in arrears. Commencing on August 1 , 1998, and on the
first day of each calendar month thereafter until the Maturity Date, Debtor
shall pay FFCA interest which has accrued at the Adjustable Rate on the
outstanding principal balance of this Note during the preceding Interest Period.
FFCA shall notify Debtor in writing on or before the twenty-fifth day of each
calendar month during the term of this Note of FFCA's determination of the
interest payable on the first day of the next succeeding calendar month. All
outstanding principal and unpaid accrued interest shall be paid on the Maturity
Date.

         Each payment hereunder shall be applied first to any past due payments
under this Note (including payment of all Costs (as herein defined)), then to
accrued interest at the Adjustable Rate, and the balance, after the payment of
such accrued interest, if any, shall be applied to the unpaid principal balance
of this Note; provided, however, each payment hereunder while an Event of
Default under this Note has occurred and is continuing shall be applied as FFCA
in its sole discretion may determine.

         Upon execution of this Note, Debtor shall establish arrangements
whereby all payments hereunder are transferred by wire or other means directly
from Debtor's bank account to such account as FFCA may designate or as FFCA may
otherwise designate.

         Debtor may prepay this Note as provided in the Loan Agreement.

         An "Event of Default" shall be deemed to have occurred under this Note
if any principal, interest or other monetary sum due under this Note is not paid
within five days from the date when due and FFCA shall have given notice of such
failure to Debtor and such failure shall not have been cured by Debtor within
five days from the delivery of such notice. Upon the occurrence of (i) an Event
of Default under this Note or (ii) an Event of Default or an Acceleration Event
under any of the other Loan Documents, then, in any of such events, time being
of the essence hereof, FFCA may declare the entire unpaid principal balance of
this Note, accrued interest, if any, and all other sums due under this Note, the
other Loan Documents and


                                       2
   21
any other document further securing this Note, due and payable at once without
written notice to Debtor.

         All past-due principal and/or interest shall bear interest at the
lesser of the highest rate for which the undersigned may legally contract or the
rate of 18% per annum (the "Default Rate"), and such Default Rate shall continue
to apply following a judgment in favor of FFCA under this Note. If Debtor fails
to make any payment or installment due under this Note within five days of its
due date, Debtor shall pay to FFCA in addition to any other sum due FFCA under
this Note or any other Loan Document a late charge equal to 10% of such past-due
payment or installment.

         All payments of principal and interest due hereunder shall be made (i)
without deduction of any present and future taxes, levies, imposts, deductions,
charges or withholdings, which amounts shall be paid by Debtor, and (ii) without
any other right of abatement, reduction, setoff, defense, counterclaim,
interruption, deferment or recoupment for any reason whatsoever. Debtor will pay
the amounts necessary such that the gross amount of the principal and interest
received by FFCA is not less than that required by this Note.

         No delay or omission on the part of FFCA in exercising any remedy,
right or option under this Note shall operate as a waiver of such remedy, right
or option. In any event, a waiver on any one occasion shall not be construed as
a waiver or bar to any such remedy, right or option on a future occasion.

         Debtor hereby waives presentment, demand for payment, notice of
dishonor, notice of protest, and protest, and except as otherwise provided in
the Loan Documents, all other notices or demands in connection with delivery,
acceptance, performance, default or endorsement of this Note.

         All notices, consents, approvals or other instruments required or
permitted to be given by either party pursuant to this Note shall be in writing
and given by (i) hand delivery, (ii) facsimile, (iii) express overnight delivery
service or (iv) certified or registered mail, return receipt requested, and

of any such payment received by FFCA that is in excess of the maximum interest
permitted by such provisions of law shall be credited to the principal balance
of this Note or if such excess portion exceeds the outstanding principal balance
of this Note, then such excess portion shall be refunded to Debtor. All interest
paid or agreed to be paid to FFCA shall, to the extent permitted by applicable
law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and/or spread throughout the full term of
this Note (including, without limitation, the period of any renewal or extension
thereof) so that interest for such full term shall not exceed the maximum amount
permitted by applicable law.

                               SECURITY AGREEMENT


         THIS SECURITY AGREEMENT (this "Agreement") is made and entered into as
of June 29, 1998 by and between P.F. CHANG'S CHINA BISTRO, INC., a Delaware
corporation ("Debtor"), whose principal place of business is located at 5090
North 40th Street, Suite 160, Phoenix, Arizona 85015, and FRANCHISE FINANCE
CORPORATION OF AMERICA, a Delaware corporation ("FFCA"), whose address is 17207
North Perimeter Drive, Scottsdale, Arizona 85255.

                             PRELIMINARY STATEMENT:

         FFCA has agreed to make the Loan to Debtor. To secure the Loan, Debtor
has agreed to grant FFCA a security interest in the Collateral on the terms and
conditions set forth in this Agreement. Capitalized terms not defined herein
shall have the respective meanings set forth in that certain Amended and
Restated Revolving Line of Credit Loan Agreement dated as of the date hereof
between Debtor and FFCA.

         NOW, THEREFORE, for and in consideration of the mutual covenants and
promises hereinafter set forth, FFCA and Debtor agree as follows:

         1.       DEBTOR'S OBLIGATION; SECURITY INTEREST CREATED. FFCA has
agreed to advance to Debtor the Loan, as evidenced by the execution and delivery
of the Note to FFCA, and Debtor shall pay other sums advanced or expended by
FFCA pursuant to the terms of the Loan Documents, and perform all other terms
and conditions of Debtor set forth in the Loan Documents (collectively, the
"Obligations"). To secure the payment of the Obligations, Debtor hereby grants
to FFCA a security interest in its general partnership or membership interests
in the Companies identified on Exhibit A attached hereto (the "Collateral").

         2.       DEFAULT. Any action or event which would constitute an Event
of Default (a "Default") and shall permit FFCA to exercise and pursue the
remedies specified in Section 3 below.

         3.       REMEDIES FOR DEFAULT. In the event that Debtor is, or is
deemed to be, in Default hereunder, FFCA shall have all rights and remedies of a
secured party in, to and against the Collateral granted by the Uniform
Commercial Code in the State of Arizona and otherwise available at law or in
equity, including, without limitation: (i) the right to declare all payments due
under the Loan Documents immediately due and payable and the right to recover
all fees and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) in connection with
the collection or enforcement thereof, which fees and expenses shall constitute
additional Obligations of Debtor hereunder; (ii) the right to act as, and Debtor
hereby constitutes and appoints FFCA, Debtor's true, lawful and irrevocable
attorney-in-fact (which appointment shall be deemed coupled with an interest) to
demand, receive and enforce payments and to give receipts, releases,
satisfaction for and to sue for moneys payable to Debtor under or with respect
to any of the Collateral under this Agreement, and actions taken pursuant to
this appointment may be taken either in the name of
   27
Debtor or in the name of FFCA with the same force and effect as if this
appointment had not been made; (iii) the right to take immediate and exclusive
possession of the Collateral, or any part thereof; (iv) the right to hold,
maintain, preserve and prepare the Collateral for sale, until disposed of; (v)
the right to dispose of the Collateral; (vi) the right to require Debtor to
assemble and package the Collateral and make it available to FFCA for its
possession at a place to be designated by FFCA which is reasonably convenient to
the FFCA; (vii) the right to sell, hold or otherwise dispose of all or any part
of the Collateral; (viii) the right to sue for specific performance of any
obligation under the Loan Documents or to recover damages for breach thereof;
(ix) the right at any time to amend or terminate the Management Agreements
and/or the Joint Venture Agreements; (x) the right to receive all cash
distributions or payments payable in respect of the Collateral; and (xi) the
right to exercise or cause to be exercised all voting rights and partnership or
limited liability company, as applicable, powers in respect of the Collateral.
The remedies of FFCA hereunder are cumulative and the exercise of any one or
more of the remedies provided for herein or under the Uniform Commercial Code or
other applicable law shall not be construed as a waiver of any of the other
remedies of FFCA so long as any part of the Obligations secured hereby remains
unsatisfied. FFCA shall be entitled to receive on demand, as additional
Obligations hereunder, interest at the lower of 18% per annum or the highest
rate permitted by applicable law on all amounts not paid when due under the Note
or this Agreement, for the period such amounts are overdue. FFCA shall have no
duty to mitigate any loss to the Debtor occasioned by enforcement of any remedy
hereunder and shall have no duty of any kind to any subordinated creditor of
Debtor.

         4.       APPLICATION OF PROCEEDS. Should FFCA exercise the rights and
remedies specified in Section 3 hereof, any proceeds received thereby shall be
first applied to pay the costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys'
fees, incurred by FFCA as a result of Debtor's Default. The remainder of any
proceeds, net of FFCA's costs and expenses, shall be applied to the satisfaction
of the Obligations and, so long as Debtor is not in Default hereunder, any
excess shall be paid over to Debtor. If Debtor is in Default hereunder, any
excess may be held by FFCA for a reasonable time and either applied to the
Obligations or paid over to Debtor.

         5.       APPLICABLE LAW. Debtor acknowledges that this Agreement was
substantially negotiated in the State of Arizona, the executed Agreement was
delivered in the State of Arizona, all payments under the Loan Documents will be
delivered in the State of Arizona and there are substantial contacts between the
parties and the transactions contemplated herein and the State of Arizona. For
purposes of any action or proceeding arising out of this Agreement, the parties
hereto expressly submit to the jurisdiction of all federal and state courts
located in the State of Arizona. Debtor consents that it may be served with any
process or paper by registered mail or by personal service within or without the
State of Arizona in accordance with applicable law. Furthermore, Debtor waives
and agrees not to assert in any such action, suit or proceeding that it is not
personally subject to the jurisdiction of such courts, that the action, suit or
proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum or that venue of the action, suit
or proceeding is improper. It is the intent of the parties hereto that all
provisions of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance
with the laws of the State of Arizona. To the extent that a court of competent
jurisdiction finds Arizona law inapplicable with respect to any


                                       2
   28
provisions hereof, then, as to those provisions only, the laws of the state
where the Collateral is located shall be deemed to apply. Nothing contained in
this paragraph shall limit or restrict the right of FFCA to commence any
proceeding in the federal or state courts located in the state in which the
Collateral is located to the extent FFCA deems such proceeding necessary or
advisable to exercise remedies available under the Loan Documents.

         6.       NONASSIGNABILITY. This Agreement may not by assigned by Debtor
without the consent of FFCA. However, FFCA may assign its rights under this
Agreement to any third party without the prior consent of Debtor.

         7.       POSSESSION. Until a Default occurs, Debtor may retain
possession of the Collateral, shall be entitled to all distributions as a result
of its interests in the Companies and may use it in any lawful manner not
inconsistent with this Agreement, with the provisions of any policies of
insurance thereon or the other Loan Documents.

         8.       WAIVER. No Default hereunder by Debtor shall be deemed to have
been waived by FFCA except by a writing to that effect signed by FFCA and no
waiver of any Default shall operate as a waiver of any other Default on a future
occasion. No modification, rescission, waiver, release or amendment of any
provision of this Agreement shall be made except by a written agreement signed
by Debtor and FFCA.

         9.       SEVERABILITY. In case any one or more of the provisions
contained herein or in the Note shall be held to be invalid, illegal or
unenforceable in any respect, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability
shall not affect any other provision hereof, and this Agreement shall be
construed as if such provision had never been contained herein or therein.

         10.      NOTICES; AMENDMENTS; WAIVERS. All notices, demands,
designations, certificates, requests, offers, consents, approvals, appointments

benefit of Debtor and FFCA and their respective successors and permitted
assigns, including, without limitation, any United States trustee, any debtor in

acknowledge that this Agreement was substantially negotiated in the State of
Arizona, the Agreement was signed and delivered by Debtor in the State of
Arizona, and there are substantial contacts between the parties and the
transactions contemplated herein and the State of Arizona. For purposes of any

the State of Arizona and Debtor consents that it may be served with any process
or paper by registered mail or by personal service within or without the State
of Arizona in accordance with applicable law. Furthermore, Debtor waives and
agrees not to assert in any such action, suit or proceeding that it is not
personally subject to the jurisdiction of such courts, that the action, suit or
proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum or that venue of the action, suit
or proceeding is improper. It is the intent of the parties hereto that all
provisions of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws
of the State of Arizona. To the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction
finds Arizona law inapplicable with respect to any provisions hereof, then, as
to those provisions only, the laws of the state where the Premises is located
shall be deemed to apply. Nothing in this Section shall limit or restrict the
right of FFCA to commence any proceeding in the federal or state courts located
in the state in which the Premises are located to the extent FFCA deems such
proceeding necessary or advisable to exercise remedies available under this
Agreement.

PARTIES HERETO OF ANY RIGHT EITHER MAY HAVE TO A TRIAL BY JURY HAS BEEN

RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL ISSUES PRESENTED IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING, CLAIM OR
COUNTERCLAIM BROUGHT BY DEBTOR AGAINST FFCA OR ITS SUCCESSORS WITH RESPECT TO
ANY MATTER ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY DOCUMENT
