(b) The Holders or their representatives shall have the right, upon reasonable prior written notice to a Grantor and during the regular business hours of such Grantor, to examine and inspect the Collateral and to review the books and records of such Grantor concerning the Collateral that is now owned or acquired after the date of this Agreement by such Grantor and to copy the same and make excerpts therefrom; provided, however, that during the continuance of an Event of Default, the rights of inspection and entry shall be subject to the requirements of the Code.
(c) Each Grantor shall at all times during the term of this Agreement keep the Equipment, Inventory and Fixtures that are now owned by each Grantor in the states set forth on Schedule I or, upon written notice to the Holders, at such other locations for which the Holders have filed financing statements, and in no other states without ten days’ prior written notice to the Holders, except that, subject to Section 4 of this Agreement, each Grantor shall have the right to move or otherwise dispose of Inventory and other Collateral in the ordinary course of business.
(d) Each Grantor shall not move the location of its principal executive offices without prior written notification to the Majority Holders.
(e) Without the prior written consent of the Holders, each Grantor shall not sell, lease or otherwise dispose of any Equipment or Fixtures, except in the ordinary course of business.

(g) During the term of this Agreement, each Grantor shall deliver to the Majority Holders, upon their reasonable, written request from time to time, without limitation,

(h) Notwithstanding the security interest in the Collateral granted to and created in favor of the Holders under this Agreement, but subject to Section 4 of this Agreement, each Grantor shall have the right, at its own cost and expense, to collect the Accounts and the Chattel Paper and to enforce their contract rights.
(i) Subject to the terms of the Permitted Liens, during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Majority Holders shall have the right, in their sole discretion, to give notice of the Holders’ security interest to account debtors obligated to each Grantor and to take over and direct collection of the Accounts and the Chattel Paper, to notify such account debtors to make payment directly to the Holders and to enforce payment of the Accounts and the Chattel Paper and to enforce each Grantor’s contract rights. It is understood and agreed by each Grantor that the Majority Holders shall have no liability whatsoever under this subsection (i) except for their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.
(j) At all times during the term of this Agreement, each Grantor shall promptly deliver to the Holders, upon the written request of the Majority Holders, all existing leases, and all other leases entered into by each Grantor from time to time, covering any material Equipment or Inventory (the “Leased Inventory”) which is leased to third parties.
(k) Each Grantor shall not change its name, federal taxpayer identification number, or provincial organizational or registration number, or the state under which it is organized without providing at least 20 days’ prior written notice of any such change to the Majority Holders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Grantor may change its entity status without the prior written consent of the Majority Holders, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed.
(l) Each Grantor shall not close any of its Deposit Accounts or open any new or additional Deposit Accounts without first giving the Holders at least ten days’ prior written notice thereof; however, the Majority Holders have the power to waive a portion of the notice period if such waiver does not harm Holders’ security position.
(m) Subject to restrictions resulting from the Permitted Liens, each Grantor shall cooperate with the Majority Holders, at each Grantor’s reasonable expense, in perfecting Holders’ security interest in any of the Collateral. Each Grantor agrees that from time to time, at its own expense, such Grantor will promptly execute and deliver all further instruments and documents, and take all further action, that the Majority Holders may reasonably request, in order to perfect and protect the security interests granted or purported to be granted hereby or to enable the Holders to exercise and enforce their rights and remedies hereunder with respect to any of the Collateral.
(n) Subject to restrictions resulting from the Permitted Liens, the Majority Holders may file any necessary financing statements they deem reasonably necessary in order to perfect the Holders’ security interest without either Grantor’s signature where permitted by law.
4. Actions with Respect to Accounts.
Each Grantor irrevocably makes, constitutes and appoints the Majority Holders its true and lawful attorney-in-fact with power to sign its name and to take any of the following actions after the occurrence, and prior to the cure, of an Event of Default, at any time and at each Grantor’s reasonable expense, subject to the terms of the Permitted Liens and provided that each Grantor is given notice of any such action:
(a) Verify the validity and amount of, or any other matter relating to, the Collateral by mail, telephone, telegraph or otherwise;
(b) Notify all account debtors that the Accounts have been assigned to the Holders and that the Holders have a security interest in the Accounts;

(e) Take control in any manner of any rejected, returned, stopped in transit or repossessed goods relating to Accounts;
(f) Enforce payment of and collect any Accounts, by legal proceedings or otherwise, and for such purpose the Holders may:
(i) Demand payment of any Accounts or direct any account debtors to make payment of Accounts directly to the Holders;
(ii) Receive and collect all monies due or to become due to each Grantor pursuant to the Accounts;
(iii) Exercise all of each Grantor’s rights and remedies with respect to the collection of Accounts;

(vii) Prepare, file and sign each Grantor’s name or names on any notice of lien, claim of mechanic’s lien, assignment or satisfaction of lien or mechanic’s lien or similar document in connection with the Collateral;
(viii) Endorse the name of each Grantor upon any chattel papers, documents, instruments, invoices, freight bills, bills of lading or similar documents or agreements relating to Accounts or goods pertaining to Accounts or upon any checks or other media of payment or evidence of a security interest that may come into the Holders’ possession;
(ix) Sign the name or names of each Grantor to verifications of Accounts and notices of Accounts sent by account debtors to each Grantor; or
(x) Take all other actions that the Holders reasonably deem to be necessary or desirable to protect each Grantor’s interest in the Accounts.
(g) Negotiate and endorse any Document in favor of the Holders or their designees, covering Inventory which constitutes Collateral, and related documents for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this Agreement and taking any action and executing in the name(s) of Borrower any instrument which the Majority Holders may reasonably deem necessary or advisable to accomplish the purpose hereof. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Majority Holders shall have the right and power to receive, endorse and collect checks and other orders for the payment of money made payable to each Grantor representing any payment or reimbursement made under, pursuant to or with respect to, the Collateral or any part thereof and to give full discharge to the same. Each Grantor does hereby ratify and approve all acts of said attorney and agrees that said attorney shall not be liable for any acts of commission or omission, nor for any error of judgment or mistake of fact or law, except for said attorney’s own gross negligence or willful misconduct. This power, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable until the Notes are paid in full (at which time this power shall terminate in full) and each Grantor shall have performed all of its obligations under this Agreement. Each Grantor further agrees to use its reasonable efforts to assist the Collateral Agent in the collection and enforcement of the Accounts and will not hinder, delay or impede the Majority Holders in any manner in their collection and enforcement of the Accounts.
5. Preservation and Protection of Security Interest.
Each Grantor represents and warrants that it has, and covenants and agrees that at all times during the term of this Agreement, it will have, good and marketable title to the Collateral now owned by it free and clear of all mortgages, pledges, liens, security interests, charges or other encumbrances, except for the Permitted Liens and those junior in right of payment and enforcement to that of the Holders or in favor of the Holders, and shall defend the Collateral against the claims and demands of all persons, firms and entities whomsoever. Assuming the Majority Holders have taken all required action to perfect a security interest in the Collateral as provided by the Code, each Grantor represents and warrants that as of the date of this Agreement the Holders have, and that all times in the future the Holders will have, a first priority perfected security interest in the Collateral, prior and superior to the rights of all third parties in the Collateral existing on the date of this Agreement or arising after the date of this Agreement, subject to the Permitted Liens. Except as permitted by this Agreement, each Grantor covenants and agrees that it shall not, without the prior written consent of the Majority Holders, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, (i) borrow against the Collateral or any portion of the Collateral from any other person, firm or entity, except for borrowings which are subordinate to the rights of the Holders, (ii) grant or create or permit to attach or exist any mortgage, pledge, lien, charge or other encumbrance, or security interest on, of or in any of the Collateral or any portion of the Collateral except those in favor of the Holders or the Permitted Liens, (iii) permit any levy or attachment to be made against the Collateral or any portion of the Collateral, except those subject to the Permitted Liens, or (iv) permit any financing statements to be on file with respect to any of the Collateral, except financing statements in favor of the Holders or those with respect to the Permitted Liens. Each Grantor shall faithfully preserve and protect the Holders’ security interest in the Collateral and shall, at its own reasonable cost and expense, cause, or assist the Majority Holders to cause that security interest to be perfected and continue perfected so long as the Notes or any portion of the Notes are outstanding, unpaid or executory. For purposes of the perfection of the Holders’ security interest in the Collateral in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement, each Grantor shall from time to time at the request of the Holders file or record, or cause to be filed or recorded, such instruments, documents and notices, including assignments, financing statements and continuation statements, as the Majority Holders may reasonably deem necessary or advisable from time to time in order to perfect and continue perfected such security interest. Each Grantor shall do all such other acts and things and shall execute and deliver all such other instruments and documents, including further security agreements, pledges, endorsements, assignments and notices, as the Majority Holders in their discretion may reasonably deem necessary or advisable from time to time in order to perfect and preserve the priority of such security interest as a first lien security interest in the Collateral prior to the rights of all third persons, firms and entities, subject to the Permitted Liens and except as may be otherwise provided in this Agreement. Each Grantor agrees that a carbon, photographic or other reproduction of this Agreement or a financing statement is sufficient as a financing statement and may be filed instead of the original.
Risk of loss of, damage to or destruction of the Equipment, Inventory and Fixtures is on each Grantor. Each Grantor shall insure the Equipment, Inventory and Fixtures against such risks and casualties and in such amounts and with such insurance companies as is ordinarily carried by corporations or other entities engaged in the same or similar businesses and similarly situated or as otherwise reasonably required by the Majority Holders in their sole discretion. In the event of loss of, damage to or destruction of the Equipment, Inventory or Fixtures during the term of this Agreement, each Grantor shall promptly notify the Majority Holders of such loss, damage or destruction. At the reasonable request of the Majority Holders, each Grantor’s policies of insurance shall contain loss payable clauses in favor of each Grantor and the Holders as their respective interests may appear and shall contain provision for notification of the Holders thirty (30) days prior to the termination of such policy. At the request of the Majority Holders, copies of all such policies, or certificates evidencing the same, shall be deposited with the Holders. If any Grantor fails to effect and keep in full force and effect such insurance or fail to pay the premiums when due, the Majority Holders may (but shall not be obligated to) do so for the account of such Grantor and add the cost thereof to the Notes. The proceeds of any such insurance collected by any Grantor will be applied either (i) to the repair of damaged Equipment, Inventory or Fixtures, or (ii) to the replacement of destroyed Equipment, Inventory or Fixtures with Equipment, Inventory or Fixtures of the same or similar type and function and of at least equivalent value; provided that such replacement Equipment, Fixtures or Inventory is made subject to the security interest created by this Agreement and constitutes a first lien security interest in the Equipment, Inventory and Fixtures subject only to Permitted Liens and other security interests permitted under this Agreement, and is perfected by the filing of financing statements in the appropriate public offices and the taking of such other action as may be necessary or desirable in order to perfect and continue perfected such security interest. Any balance of insurance proceeds remaining in the possession of the Holders after payment in full of the Notes shall be paid over to the applicable Grantor or its order.
7. Maintenance and Repair.
Each Grantor shall maintain the Equipment, Inventory and Fixtures, and every portion thereof, in good condition, repair and working order, reasonable wear and tear alone excepted, and shall pay and discharge all taxes, levies and other impositions assessed or levied thereon as well as the cost of repairs to or maintenance of the same. If any Grantor fails to do so, the Holders may (but shall not be obligated to) pay the cost of such repairs or maintenance and such taxes, levies or impositions for the account of such Grantor and add the amount of such payments to the principal of the Notes.
8. Preservation of Rights against Third Parties; Preservation of Collateral in Holders’ Possession.
Until such time as the Holders exercise their right to effect direct collection of the Accounts and the Chattel Paper and to effect the enforcement of each Grantor’s contract rights, each Grantor assumes full responsibility for taking any and all commercially reasonable steps to preserve rights in respect of the Accounts and the Chattel Paper and their contracts against prior parties. The Holders shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of such of the Collateral as may come into its possession from time to time if the Holders take such action for that purpose as the relevant Grantor shall request in writing, provided that such requested action shall not, in the judgment of the Holders, impair the Holders’ security interest in the Collateral or its right in, or the value of, the Collateral, and provided further that the Holders receive such written request in sufficient time to permit the Holders to take the requested action.
9. Events of Default and Remedies.
(a) If any one or more of the Events of Default shall occur or shall exist, the Majority Holders may then or at any time thereafter, so long as such default shall continue, foreclose the lien or security interest in the Collateral in any way permitted by law, or upon 20 days’ prior written notice to the relevant Grantor, sell any or all Collateral at private sale at any time or place in one or more sales, at such price or prices and upon such terms, either for cash or on credit, as the Majority Holders, in their sole discretion, may elect, or sell any or all Collateral at public auction, either for cash or on credit, as the Majority Holders, in their sole discretion, may elect, and at any such sale, the Majority Holders, on behalf of the Holders, may bid for and become the purchaser of any or all such Collateral. Pending any such action the Majority Holders may liquidate the Collateral.
(b) If any one or more of the Events of Default shall occur or shall exist, the Majority Holders may then, or at any time thereafter, so long as such default shall continue, grant extensions to, or adjust claims of, or make compromises or settlements with, debtors, guarantors or any other parties with respect to Collateral or any securities, guarantees or insurance applying thereon, without notice to or the consent of any Grantor, without affecting each Grantor’s liability under this Agreement or the Notes. Each Grantor waives notice of acceptance, of nonpayment, protest or notice of protest of any Accounts or Chattel Paper, any of its contract rights or Collateral and any other notices to which each Grantor may be entitled.
(c) If any one or more of the Events of Default shall occur or shall exist and be continuing, then in any such event, the Majority Holders shall have such additional rights and remedies in respect of the Collateral or any portion thereof as are provided by the Code and such other rights and remedies in respect thereof which they may have at law or in equity or under this Agreement, including without limitation the right to enter any premises where Equipment, Inventory and/or Fixtures are located and take possession and control thereof without demand or notice and without prior judicial hearing or legal proceedings, which each Grantor expressly waives.
(d) The Majority Holders shall apply the Proceeds of any sale or liquidation of the Collateral, and, subject to Section 5, any Proceeds received by the Majority Holders from insurance, first to the payment of the reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Collateral Agent in connection with such sale or collection, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and legal expenses; second to the payment of the Notes, pro rata, whether on account of principal or interest or otherwise as the Collateral Agent, in its sole discretion, may elect, and then to pay the balance, if any, to the relevant Grantor or as otherwise required by law. If such Proceeds are insufficient to pay the amounts required by law, the Grantors shall be liable for any deficiency.
(e) During the continuance of any Event of Default, each Grantor shall promptly upon written demand by the Majority Holders assemble the Equipment, Inventory and Fixtures and make them available to the Holders at a place or places to be designated by the Majority Holders. The rights of the Majority Holders under this paragraph to have the Equipment, Inventory and Fixtures assembled and made available to them is of the essence of this Agreement and the Majority Holders may, at their election, enforce such right by an action in equity for injunctive relief or specific performance, without the requirement of a bond.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement upon the earlier of (a) payment and performance in full of the Notes or (b) the conversion of the Notes, this Agreement shall terminate and be of no further force and effect and the Holders shall thereupon terminate their security interest in the Collateral. Until such time, however, this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and assigns, provided that, without the prior written consent of the Majority Holders, no Grantor may assign this Agreement or any of its rights under this Agreement or delegate any of its duties or obligations under this Agreement and any such attempted assignment or delegation shall be null and void. This Agreement is not intended and shall not be construed to obligate the Holders to take any action whatsoever with respect to the Collateral or to incur expenses or perform or discharge any obligation, duty or disability of any Grantor.
(a) The provisions of this Agreement are intended to be severable. If any provision of this Agreement shall for any reason be held invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction, such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability without in any manner affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction or any other provision of this Agreement in any jurisdiction.
(b) No failure or delay on the part of the Holders in exercising any right, remedy, power or privilege under this Agreement and the Notes shall operate as a waiver thereof or of any other right, remedy, power or privilege of the Holders under this Agreement, the Notes or any of the other Loan Documents; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such right, remedy, power or privilege preclude any other right, remedy, power or privilege or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power or privilege. The rights, remedies, powers and privileges of the Holders under this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents are cumulative and not exclusive of any rights or remedies which they may otherwise have.
(c) Unless otherwise provided herein, all demands, notices, consents, service of process, requests and other communications hereunder shall be in writing and shall be given in accordance with Section 20 of the Subscription Agreement.
(d) The section headings contained in this Agreement are for reference purposes only and shall not control or affect its construction or interpretation in any respect.
(e) The Code shall govern the settlement, perfection and the effect of attachment and perfection of the Holders’ security interest in the Collateral, and the rights, duties and obligations of the Holders and each Grantor with respect to the Collateral. This Agreement shall be deemed to be a contract under the laws of the State of Colorado and the execution and delivery of this Agreement and, to the extent not inconsistent with the preceding sentence, the terms and provisions of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of that State. EACH GRANTOR HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVES ANY RIGHT IT MAY HAVE TO, AND AGREES NOT TO REQUEST, A JURY TRIAL FOR THE ADJUDICATION OF ANY DISPUTE HEREUNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY TRANSACTION CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.
(f) This Agreement may be executed in several counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which shall constitute one and the same instrument. All of such counterparts shall be read as though one, and they shall have the same force and effect as though all the signers had signed a single page. In the event that any signature is delivered by facsimile transmission or by an e-mail which contains a portable document format (.pdf) file of an executed signature page, such signature page shall create a valid and binding obligation of the party executing (or on whose behalf such signature is executed) with the same force and effect as if such signature page were an original thereof.
