(g)          Maintain Insurance. The Company and the Corporate Guarantors shall at all times insure and keep insured with insurance companies acceptable to Buyer, all insurable property owned by the Company and the Corporate Guarantors which is of a character usually insured by companies similarly situated and operating like properties, against loss or damage from environmental, fire and such other hazards or risks as are customarily insured against by companies similarly situated and operating like properties; and shall similarly insure employers’, public and professional liability risks. Prior to the Effective Date, the Company and the Corporate Guarantors shall deliver to the Buyer a certificate setting forth in summary form the nature and extent of the insurance maintained pursuant to this Section. All such policies of insurance must be satisfactory to Buyer in relation to the amount and term of the Debentures and the Fee Debenture and type and value of the Assets of the Company and the Corporate Guarantors, shall identify Buyer as sole/lender’s loss payee and as an additional insured. In the event the Company and the Corporate Guarantors fail to provide Buyer with evidence of the insurance coverage required by this Section or at any time hereafter shall fail to obtain or maintain any of the policies of insurance required above, or to pay any premium in whole or in part relating thereto, then the Buyer, without waiving or releasing any obligation or default by the Company and the Corporate Guarantors hereunder, may at any time (but shall be under no obligation to so act), obtain and maintain such policies of insurance and pay such premium and take any other action with respect thereto, which Buyer deems advisable.

The costs of such insurance, which may be greater than the cost of insurance which the Company and the Corporate Guarantors may be able to obtain on its own, together with interest thereon at the highest non-usurious rate permitted by Law and any other charges incurred by Buyer in connection with the placement of such insurance may be added to the total Obligations due and owing by the Company and the Corporate Guarantors hereunder and under the Debentures to the extent not paid by the Credit Parties.

(iv)        promptly at the request of Buyer, give the Company’s transfer agent (the “Transfer Agent”) instructions to the effect that, upon the Transfer Agent’s receipt from Buyer of a certificate (a “Rule 144 Certificate”) certifying that Buyer’s holding period (as determined in accordance with the provisions of Rule 144) for any portion of the shares of Common Stock issuable under any Transaction Document which Buyer proposes to sell (or any portion of such shares which Buyer is not presently selling, but for which Buyer desires to remove any restrictive legends applicable thereto) (the “Securities Being Sold”) is not less than six (6) months, and, provided such Securities Being Sold are then eligible for resale pursuant to Rule 144, receipt by the Transfer Agent of the “Rule 144 Opinion” (as hereinafter defined) from the Company or its counsel (or from Buyer and its counsel as permitted below), the Transfer Agent is to effect the transfer (or issuance of a new certificate without restrictive legends, if applicable) of the Securities Being Sold and issue to Buyer or transferee(s) thereof one or more stock certificates representing the transferred (or re-issued) Securities Being Sold without any restrictive legend and without recording any restrictions on the transferability of such shares on the Transfer Agent’s books and records. In this regard, upon Buyer’s request, the Company shall have an affirmative obligation to cause its counsel to promptly issue to the Transfer Agent a legal opinion providing that, based on the Rule 144 Certificate, the Securities Being Sold may be sold pursuant to the provisions of Rule 144, even in the absence of an effective registration statement (the “Rule 144 Opinion”). If the Transfer Agent requires any additional documentation in connection with any proposed transfer (or re-issuance) by Buyer of any Securities Being Sold, the Company shall promptly deliver or cause to be delivered to the Transfer Agent or to any other Person, all such additional documentation as may be necessary to effectuate the transfer (or re issuance) of the Securities Being Sold and the issuance of an unlegended certificate to any such Buyer or any transferee thereof, all at the Company’s expense. Any and all fees, charges or expenses, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and costs, incurred by Buyer in connection with issuance of any such shares, or the removal of any restrictive legends thereon, or the transfer of any such shares to any assignee of Buyer, shall be paid by the Company, and if not paid by the Company, the Buyer may, but shall not be required to, pay any such fees, charges or expenses, and the amount thereof, together with interest thereon at the highest non-usurious rate permitted by law, from the date of outlay, until paid in full, shall be due and payable by the Company to Buyer immediately upon demand therefor, and all such amounts shall be additional Obligations of the company to Buyer secured under the Transaction Documents. In the event that the Company and/or its counsel refuses or fails for any reason to render the Rule 144 Opinion or any other documents, certificates or instructions required to effectuate the transfer (or re-issuance) of the Securities Being Sold and the issuance of an unlegended certificate to any such Buyer or any transferee thereof, then: (A) to the extent the Securities Being Sold could be lawfully transferred (or re-issued) without restrictions under applicable laws, Company’s failure to promptly provide the Rule 144 Opinion or any other documents, certificates or instructions required to effectuate the transfer (or re-issuance) of the Securities Being Sold and the issuance of an unlegended certificate to any such Buyer or any transferee thereof shall be an immediate Event of Default under this Agreement and all other Transaction Documents; and (B) the Company hereby agrees and acknowledges that Buyer is hereby irrevocably and expressly authorized to have counsel to Buyer render any and all opinions and other certificates or instruments which may be required for purposes of effectuating the transfer (or re-issuance) of the Securities Being Sold and the issuance of an unlegended certificate to any such Buyer or any transferee thereof, and the Company hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs the Transfer Agent to, without any further confirmation or instructions from the Company, transfer or re-issue any such Securities Being Sold as instructed by Buyer and its counsel.

(ii)      Removal of Restrictive Legends. In the event that Buyer has any shares of the Company’s Common Stock bearing any restrictive legends, and Buyer, through its counsel or other representatives, submits to the Transfer Agent any such shares for the removal of the restrictive legends thereon, whether in connection with a sale of such shares pursuant to any exemption to the registration requirements under the Securities Act, or otherwise, and the Company and or its counsel refuses or fails for any reason to render an opinion of counsel or any other documents or certificates required for the removal of the restrictive legends, then the Company hereby agrees and acknowledges that Buyer is hereby irrevocably and expressly authorized to have counsel to Buyer render any and all opinions and other certificates or instruments which may be required for purposes of removing such restrictive legends, and the Company hereby irrevocably authorizes and directs the Transfer Agent to, without any further confirmation or instructions from the Company, issue any such shares without restrictive legends as instructed by Buyer, and surrender to a common carrier for overnight delivery to the address as specified by Buyer, certificates, registered in the name of Buyer or its designees or nominees, representing the shares of Common Stock to which Buyer is entitled, without any restrictive legends and otherwise freely transferable on the books and records of the Company.

The authorization and power of attorney granted hereby is coupled with an interest and is irrevocable so long as any obligations of the Company under Debentures remain outstanding, and so long as the Buyer owns or has the right to receive, any shares of the Company’s Common Stock hereunder or under any Transaction Documents. In this regard, the Company hereby confirms to the Transfer Agent and the Buyer that it can NOT and will NOT give instructions, including stop orders or otherwise, inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement with regard to the matters contemplated herein, and that the Buyer shall have the absolute right to provide a copy of this Agreement to the Transfer Agent as evidence of the Company’s irrevocable authority for Buyer and Transfer Agent to process issuances, transfers and legend removals upon instructions from Buyer, or any counsel or representatives of Buyer, as specifically contemplated herein, without any further instructions, orders or confirmations from the Company.

 

(iv)     Injunction and Specific Performance. The Company specifically acknowledges and agrees that in the event of a breach or threatened breach by the Company of any provision of this Section 7.2(k), the Buyer will be irreparably damaged and that damages at law would be an inadequate remedy if this Agreement were not specifically enforced. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Section 7.2(k) by the Company, the Buyer shall be entitled to obtain, in addition to all other rights or remedies Buyer may have, at law or in equity, an injunction restraining such breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post any bond or other security, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of this Section 7.2(k).

Failure to pay such fee as and when required shall be deemed an Event of Default under this Agreement and all other Transaction Documents. The foregoing notwithstanding, from and after the occurrence of an Event of Default or any event which with notice, lapse of time or both, would become an Event of Default, Buyer may conduct site visits, field examinations and other ongoing reviews of the Company and the Corporate Guarantors’ records, Assets and operations at any time, in its sole discretion, without any limitations in terms of number of site visits or examinations and without being limited to the fee hereby contemplated, all at the sole expense of the Company.

11.6       MANDATORY FORUM SELECTION. TO INDUCE BUYER TO PURCHASE THE DEBENTURES, THE COMPANY AND GUARANTORS IRREVOCABLY AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE ARISING UNDER, RELATING TO, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, THIS AGREEMENT OR RELATED TO ANY MATTER WHICH IS THE SUBJECT OF OR INCIDENTAL TO THIS AGREEMENT ANY OTHER TRANSACTION DOCUMENT (WHETHER OR NOT SUCH CLAIM IS BASED UPON BREACH OF CONTRACT OR TORT) SHALL BE SUBJECT TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF THE STATE AND/OR FEDERAL COURTS LOCATED IN BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA; PROVIDED, HOWEVER, BUYER MAY, AT BUYER’S SOLE OPTION, ELECT TO BRING ANY ACTION IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION.

39

 

 

11.7       Assignability. Buyer may at any time assign Buyer’s rights in this Agreement, the Debentures, any Transaction Document, or any part thereof and transfer Buyer’s rights in any or all of the Collateral, and Buyer thereafter shall be relieved from all liability with respect to such Collateral. In addition, Buyer may at any time sell one or more participations in the Debentures. The Company and the Corporate Guarantors may not sell or assign this Agreement, any Transaction Document or any other agreement with Buyer, or any portion thereof, either voluntarily or by operation of law, nor delegate any of its duties of obligations hereunder or thereunder, without the prior written consent of Buyer, which consent may be withheld or conditioned in Buyer’s sole and absolute discretion. This Agreement shall be binding upon Buyer, the Corporate Guarantors and the Company and their respective legal representatives, successors and permitted assigns. All references herein to a Company or the Corporate Guarantors shall be deemed to include any successors, whether immediate or remote. In the case of a joint venture or partnership, the term “Company”, or “Guarantor” shall be deemed to include all joint venturers or partners thereof, who shall be jointly and severally liable hereunder.

 

11.8       Publicity. Buyer shall have the right to approve, before issuance, any press release or any other public statement with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby made by the Company; provided, however, that the Company shall be entitled, without the prior approval of Buyer, to issue any press release or other public disclosure with respect to such transactions required under applicable securities or other laws or regulations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall use its best efforts to consult Buyer in connection with any such press release or other public disclosure prior to its release and Buyer shall be provided with a copy thereof upon release thereof. Buyer shall have the right to make any press release with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby without Company’s approval. In addition, with respect to any press release to be made by Buyer, the Company hereby authorizes and grants blanket permission to Buyer to include the Company’s stock symbol, if any, in any press releases. The Company shall, promptly upon request, execute any additional documents of authority or permission as may be requested by Buyer in connection with any such press releases.

 

11.9       Binding Effect. This Agreement shall become effective upon execution by the Company, the Corporate Guarantors and Buyer.

 

11.10     Governing Law. Except in the case of the Mandatory Forum Selection Clause in Section 11.6 above, which clause shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with Florida law, this Agreement and all other Transaction Documents shall be delivered and accepted in and shall be deemed to be contracts made under and governed by the internal laws of the State of Nevada, and for all purposes shall be construed in accordance with the laws of such State, without giving effect to the choice of law provisions of such State.

 

40

 

 

11.11     Enforceability. Wherever possible, each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement shall be prohibited by, unenforceable or invalid under any jurisdiction, such provision shall as to such jurisdiction, be severable and be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remaining provisions of this Agreement or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

 

11.11     Survival of Company’s and the Corporate Guarantors’ Representations. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made by the Company and the Corporate Guarantors herein shall, notwithstanding any investigation by Buyer, be deemed material and relied upon by Buyer and shall survive the making and execution of this Agreement and the Transaction Documents and the sale and purchase of the Debentures, and shall be deemed to be continuing representations and warranties until such time as the Company and the Corporate Guarantors have fulfilled all of its Obligations to Buyer hereunder and under all other Transaction Documents, and Buyer has been indefeasibly paid in full.

 

11.12     Time of Essence. Time is of the essence in making payments of all amounts due Buyer under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents and in the performance and observance by the Company and the Corporate Guarantors of each covenant, agreement, provision and term of this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents. The parties agree that in the event that any date on which performance is to occur falls on a day other than a Business Day, then the time for such performance shall be extended until the next Business Day thereafter occurring.

 

11.13     Release. In consideration of the mutual promises and covenants made herein, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the Company and Corporate Guarantors hereby agree to fully, finally and forever release and forever discharge and covenant not to sue Buyer, and/or any other Buyer Indemnified Parties from any and all Claims, debts, fees, attorneys’ fees, liens, costs, expenses, damages, sums of money, accounts, bonds, bills, covenants, promises, judgments, charges, demands, causes of action, suits, Proceedings, liabilities, expenses, Obligations or Contracts of any kind whatsoever, whether in law or in equity, whether asserted or unasserted, whether known or unknown, fixed or contingent, under statute or otherwise, from the beginning of time through the Effective Date, including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, any and all Claims relating to or arising out of any financing transactions, credit facilities, debentures, security agreements, and other agreements including each of the Transaction Documents, entered into by the Company and the Corporate Guarantors with Buyer and any and all Claims that the Company and the Corporate Guarantors do not know or suspect to exist, whether through ignorance, oversight, error, negligence, or otherwise, and which, if known, would materially affect their decision to enter into this Agreement or the related Transaction Documents.

 

41

 

 

11.15     Interpretation. If any provision in this Agreement requires judicial or similar interpretation, the judicial or other such body interpreting or construing such provision shall not apply the assumption that the terms hereof shall be more strictly construed against one party because of the rule that an instrument must be construed more strictly against the party which itself or through its agents prepared the same. The parties hereby agree that all parties and their agents have participated in the preparation hereof equally.

 

11.16     Compliance with Federal Law. The Company shall: (i) ensure that no Person who owns a controlling interest in or otherwise controls the Company is or shall be listed on the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Person List or other similar lists maintained by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), the Department of the Treasury, included in any Executive Orders or any other similar lists from any Governmental Authority, foreign or national; (ii) not use or permit the use of the proceeds of the Debentures to violate any of the foreign asset control regulations of OFAC or any enabling statute or Executive Order relating thereto, or any other similar national or foreign governmental regulations; and (iii) comply with all applicable Lender Secrecy Act laws and regulations, as amended. As required by federal law and Buyer’s policies and practices, Buyer may need to obtain, verify and record certain customer identification information and documentation in connection with opening or maintaining accounts or establishing or continuing to provide services.

 

11.17      Termination. Upon payment in full of all outstanding Debentures purchased hereunder, together with all other charges, fees and costs due and payable under this Agreement or under any of the Transaction Documents, the Company shall have the right to terminate this Agreement upon written notice to the Buyer, provided, however, that if such termination occurs within the ninety (90) days after the First Closing Date, then the Company shall pay to Buyer as liquidated damages and compensation for the costs of being prepared to make funds available hereunder, an amount equal to five percent (5.0%) of the amount of Debentures purchased hereunder. The parties agree that the amount payable to pursuant to this Section 11.17 is a reasonable calculation of Buyer’s lost profits in view of the difficulties and impracticality of determining actual damages resulting from an early termination of this Agreement.

 

11.18     Gender and Use of Singular and Plural. All pronouns shall be deemed to refer to the masculine, feminine, neuter, singular or plural, as the identity of the party or parties or their personal representatives, successors and assigns may require.

 

11.19     Execution. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, all of which taken together shall be deemed and considered one and the same Agreement, and same shall become effective when counterparts have been signed by each party and each party has delivered its signed counterpart to the other party. In the event that any signature is delivered by facsimile transmission or by e-mail delivery of a “.pdf’ format file or other similar format file, such signature shall be deemed an original for all purposes and shall create a valid and binding obligation of the party executing same with the same force and effect as if such facsimile or “.pdf’ signature page was an original thereof.

 

42

 

 

11.20     Headings. The article and section headings contained in this Agreement are inserted for convenience only and shall not affect in any way the meaning or interpretation of the Agreement.

 

11.21     Further Assurances. The Company and the Corporate Guarantors will execute and deliver such further instruments and do such further acts and things as may be reasonably required by Buyer to carry out the intent and purposes of this Agreement.

 

11.22     No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement is intended for the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted successors and assigns, and is not for the benefit of, nor may any provision hereof be enforced by, any other Person.
