What is an Amended Promissory Note?

An amended promissory note is a legal document that changes the terms of the original promissory note. These amendments should be made with consent from the lender and, once in place, will be considered binding by all parties involved.

Canceling a promissory note is a completely different process from amending it. Amending a promissory note is a legal process by which parties can denote changes to the original contract and continue with the terms of the agreement as set forth. Canceling a promissory note is a process that will lead the note to become null and void.

The Debt shall without notice become immediately due and payable at the option of Lender if any payment required in this Note is not paid on or prior to the date when due (beyond the expiration of any applicable grace periods) or if not paid on the Maturity Date or on the occurrence of any other Event of Default and in addition, during the continuance of an Event of Default, Lender shall be entitled to receive interest on the entire unpaid principal sum at the Default Rate pursuant to the terms of the Loan Agreement. This Article 2, however, shall not be

 

- 2 -


construed as an agreement or privilege to extend the date of the payment of the Debt, nor as a waiver of any other right or remedy accruing to Lender by reason of the occurrence of any Event of Default.

ARTICLE 3 - LOAN DOCUMENTS

This Note is secured by the Pledge Agreement and the other Loan Documents. All of the terms, covenants and conditions contained in the Loan Agreement, the Pledge Agreement and the other Loan Documents are hereby made part of this Note to the same extent and with the same force as if they were fully set forth herein. In the event of a conflict or inconsistency between the terms of this Note and the Loan Agreement, the terms and provisions of the Loan Agreement shall govern.

ARTICLE 4 - SAVINGS CLAUSE

This Note and the Loan Agreement are subject to the express condition that at no time shall Borrower be obligated or required to pay interest on the principal balance of the Loan at a rate which could subject Lender to either civil or criminal liability as a result of being in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate. If, by the terms of this Note, the Loan Agreement or the other Loan Documents, Borrower is at any time required or obligated to pay interest on the principal balance due hereunder at a rate in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate, the Applicable Interest Rate or the Default Rate, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to the Maximum Legal Rate and all previous payments in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of principal and not on account of the interest due hereunder. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the sums due under the Loan, shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated, and spread throughout the full stated term of the Loan until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of the Loan does not exceed the Maximum Legal Rate of interest from time to time in effect and applicable to the Loan for so long as the Loan is outstanding.

ARTICLE 5 - NO ORAL CHANGE

This Note may not be modified, amended, waived, extended, changed, discharged or terminated orally or by any act or failure to act on the part of Borrower or Lender, but only by an agreement in writing signed by the party against whom enforcement of any modification, amendment, waiver, extension, change, discharge or termination is sought.

ARTICLE 6 - WAIVERS

Borrower and all others who may become liable for the payment of all or any part of the Debt do hereby severally waive (i) all exemptions, whether homestead or otherwise, as obligations evidenced by this Note and (ii) presentment and demand for payment, notice of dishonor, notice of intention to accelerate, notice of acceleration, protest and notice of protest and non-payment and all other notices of any kind. No release of any security for the Debt or extension of time for payment of this Note or any installment hereof, and no alteration, amendment or waiver of any provision of this Note, the Loan Agreement or the other Loan

Documents made by agreement between Lender or any other Person shall release, modify, amend, waive, extend, change, discharge, terminate or affect the liability of Borrower, and any other Person who may become liable for the payment of all or any part of the Debt, under this Note, the Loan Agreement or the other Loan Documents. No notice to or demand on Borrower shall be deemed to be a waiver, of the obligation of Borrower or of the right of Lender to take further action without further notice or demand as provided for in this Note, the Loan Agreement or the other Loan Documents. If Borrower is a partnership, the agreements herein contained shall remain in force and be applicable, notwithstanding any changes in the individuals or entities comprising the partnership, and the term “Borrower,” as used herein, shall include any alternate or successor partnership, but any predecessor partnership and their partners shall not thereby be released from any liability. If Borrower is a corporation, the agreements contained herein shall remain in full force and be applicable notwithstanding any changes in the shareholders comprising, or the officers and directors relating to, the corporation, and the term “Borrower” as used herein, shall include any alternate or successor corporation, but any predecessor corporation shall not be relieved of liability hereunder. If Borrower is a limited liability company, the agreements herein contained shall remain in force and be applicable, notwithstanding any changes in the members comprising the limited liability company, and the term “Borrower” as used herein, shall include any alternate or successor limited liability company, but any predecessor limited liability company and their members shall not thereby be released from any liability. (Nothing in the foregoing sentence shall be construed as a consent to, or a waiver of, any prohibition or restriction on transfers of interests in such partnership, corporation or limited liability company which may be set forth in the Loan Agreement, the Pledge Agreement or any other Loan Document.) If Borrower consists of more than one person or party, the obligations and liabilities of each such person or party shall be joint and several.

ARTICLE 7 - TRANSFER

Upon the transfer of this Note, Borrower hereby waiving notice of any such transfer (except to the extent provided for in the Loan Agreement), Lender may deliver all the collateral mortgaged, granted, pledged or assigned pursuant to the Loan Documents, or any part thereof, to the transferee who shall thereupon become vested with all the rights herein or under applicable law given to Lender with respect thereto, and Lender shall thereafter forever be relieved and fully discharged from any liability or responsibility in the matter; but Lender shall retain all rights hereby given to it with respect to any liabilities and the collateral not so transferred; provided, however, Borrower shall continue making payments due under this Note to the Lender named herein until Borrower has received notice of such transferee and upon receipt of such notice, Borrower shall commence making payments due under this Note to such transferee.

ARTICLE 8 - EXCULPATION

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Note, the liability of Borrower to pay the Debt and for the performance of the other agreements, covenants and obligations contained herein and in the Pledge Agreement, the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be limited as set forth in Section 9.4 of the Loan Agreement.
