RECITALS A. Borrower desires to obtain Revolving Credit Advances and other financial accommodations from Lender and Lender is willing to provide Revolving Credit Advances and accommodations all in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. B. Capitalized terms used herein shall have the meanings assigned to them in Schedule A and, for purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, the rules of construction set forth in Schedule A shall govern. All schedules, attachments, addenda and exhibits hereto, or expressly identified to this Agreement, are incorporated herein by reference, and taken together with this Agreement, constitute but a single agreement. AGREEMENT NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants hereinafter contained, the parties hereto agree as follows: 1. AMOUNT AND TERMS OF CREDIT 1.1 Revolving Credit Loan. (a) Revolving Credit Advances. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, from the Closing Date and until the Revolving Credit Loan Termination Date, upon the request of Borrower, Lender shall make advances (each, a "Revolving Credit Advance") to Borrower in an aggregate amount outstanding at any time not to exceed the Borrowing Availability at such time. The Revolving Credit Advances shall be repayable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. (b) Adjustments to Maximum Amount. Seasonal increases in the Maximum Amount shall not be made if, any of the following exist as of the date the schedule increase (i) Dilution, as measured on the date of the scheduled increase in the Maximum Amount, exceeds 35%, (ii) Borrower does not receive a required equity investment as set forth in Schedule G, (iii) there is a Material Adverse Effect, or (iv) a Default has occurred and is continuing. 1.2 Borrowing Procedures. Borrower shall request each Revolving Credit Advance by written notice to Lender substantially in the form of Exhibit A (each a "Notice of Revolving Credit Advance") given no later than 10:00 am (pacific time) on the Business Day of the proposed advance. A Notice of Revolving Credit Advance received by Lender after 10:00 am (pacific time) shall be deemed to have been received by Lender on the next Business Day. Lender shall be fully protected under this Agreement in relying upon, and shall be entitled to rely upon, (i) any Notice of Revolving Credit Advance believed by Lender to be genuine, and (ii) the assumption that the Persons making electronic requests or executing and delivering a Notice of 1 <PAGE> Revolving Credit Advance were duly authorized, unless the responsible individual acting thereon for Lender shall have actual knowledge to the contrary. As an accommodation to Borrower, Lender may permit telephonic, electronic or facsimile requests for a Revolving Credit Advance and electronic or facsimile transmittal of instructions, authorizations, agreements or reports to Lender by Borrower. Unless Borrower specifically directs Lender in writing not to accept or act upon telephonic, facsimile or electronic communications from Borrower, Lender shall have no liability to Borrower for any loss or damage suffered by Borrower as a result of Lender's honoring of any requests, execution of any instructions, authorizations or agreements or reliance on any reports communicated to it telephonically, by facsimile or electronically and purporting to have been sent to Lender by Borrower and Lender shall have no duty to verify the origin of any such communication or the identity or authority of the Person sending it. (a) Borrowing Base. In making any Revolving Credit Advance hereunder Lender shall be entitled to rely upon information available to Lender. (b) Term and Prepayment. (i) Upon the Revolving Credit Loan Termination Date the obligation of Lender to consider Borrower's requests for Revolving Credit Advances and other credit hereunder shall immediately terminate and Borrower shall pay to Lender in full, in cash: (i) all outstanding Revolving Credit Advances and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon; and (ii) all other non-contingent Obligations due to or incurred by Lender. (c) Over Advance. If the Revolving Credit Loan shall at any time exceed the Borrowing Availability, then Borrower shall repay the Revolving Credit Loan in the amount of such excess within two Business Days following notice from Lender. (d) Prepayment. Borrower shall have the right, at any time upon 60 days prior written notice to Lender to (i) terminate voluntarily Borrower's right to borrow any moneys or obtain other credit extensions or financial accommodations from Lender under this Agreement, and (ii) prepay all of the Obligations. The effective date of termination of the Revolving Credit Loan specified in such notice shall be the Revolving Credit Loan Termination Date. If Borrower exercises its right of termination and prepayment, or if Borrower's right to borrow any moneys or obtain other credit extensions or financial accommodations from Lender under this Agreement is terminated prior to the Stated Expiry Date then in effect as a result of the occurrence of an Event of Default, Borrower shall pay to Lender the applicable Prepayment Fee. (e) Use of Proceeds. Borrower shall use the proceeds of the Revolving Credit Advances for working capital and other general corporate purposes. (f) Reserves. Anything to the contrary in this Agreement notwithstanding, Lender shall have the right to establish reserves in such amounts, and with respect to such matters that indicate a decline in the video game industry or the likelihood of a possible Material Adverse Effect, as Lender in its reasonable discretion shall deem necessary or appropriate, against the Borrowing Base and Maximum Amount, including reserves with respect to (i) sums that Borrower is required to pay (such as Taxes, assessments, insurance premiums, or, in the case of leased assets or warehousing arrangements, rents or other amounts payable under such leases and warehousing arrangements) and has failed to pay under any Section of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, and (ii) amounts owing by Borrower to any Person to 2 <PAGE> the extent secured by a Lien on, or trust over, any of the Collateral (other than any existing Permitted Encumbrances set forth on Disclosure Schedule 5(e) which is specifically identified thereon as entitled to have priority over the Lender's Liens), which Lien or trust, in the discretion of Lender likely would have a priority superior to the Lender's Liens (such as Liens or trusts in favor of landlords, warehousemen, carriers, mechanics, materialmen, laborers, or suppliers, or Liens or trusts for ad valorem, excise, sales, or other Taxes where given priority under applicable law) in and to such item of the Collateral. 1.3 Single Loan. The Revolving Credit Advances and all of the other Obligations of Borrower to Lender shall constitute one general obligation of Borrower secured by all of the Collateral. 1.4 Interest. (a) Revolving Credit Rate. Borrower shall pay interest to Lender on the aggregate outstanding Revolving Credit Advances at a floating rate equal to the Index Rate plus .75% (the "Revolving Credit Rate"). All computations of interest shall be made by Lender on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360) day year, in each case for the actual number of days occurring in the period for which such interest or fee is payable. Each determination by Lender of an interest rate hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent manifest error. In no event will Lender charge interest at a rate that exceeds the highest rate of interest permissible under any law that a court of competent jurisdiction shall, in a final determination, deem applicable. (b) Payment of Interest. Interest shall be payable on the outstanding Revolving Credit Advances (i) in arrears on the last day of each calendar month, (ii) on the Revolving Credit Loan Termination Date, and (iii) if any interest accrues or remains payable after the Revolving Credit Loan Termination Date, upon demand by Lender. If any interest or any other payment to Lender under this Agreement becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, such payment date shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and interest thereon shall be payable at the then applicable rate during such extension. Lender may charge Borrower's loan account for all interest charges hereunder. (c) Default Interest Rate. Effective upon the occurrence of any Event of Default and for so long as any Event of Default shall be continuing, the Revolving Credit Rate shall automatically be increased by two percentage points (2%) per annum (such increased rate, the "Default Rate"), and all outstanding Obligations shall continue to accrue interest from the date of such Event of Default at the Default Rate applicable to such Obligations. 1.5 Cash Management System. On or prior to the Closing Date and until the Termination Date, Borrower will establish and maintain the cash management system described in Schedule C. All payments in respect of the Collateral shall be made in accordance with the procedures set forth in Schedule C. 1.6 Fees. Borrower agrees to pay to Lender the Fees set forth in Schedule D. 1.7 Receipt of Payments. Borrower shall place a legend on each invoice instructing all of the Account Debtors to make payments to Lender. Lender shall from time to 3 <PAGE> time notify customers or Account Debtors of Borrower that the Accounts have been assigned to Lender and that Lender has a security interest therein. Lender shall collect the Accounts directly from the Account Debtors in a manner consistent with the collection practices generally employed by Lender for the benefit of Lender's clients. So long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the sole charge for the collection efforts employed by Lender shall be the Servicing Fees. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and so long as it is continuing, Lender shall be entitled to charge Borrower with the collection costs and expenses. In this connection, the Servicing Fees, as well as any other applicable collection costs and expenses, shall be charged to Borrower's loan account. In the event any payment on an Account is paid directly to Borrower, then upon receipt by Borrower of such payment, Borrower shall immediately send to Lender such payment in the form received. Borrower agrees that all payments received by Borrower in connection with the Accounts and any other Collateral shall be held in trust for Lender as Lender's trustee. The receipt of any wire transfer of funds, check, or other item of payment received by Lender shall be applied to conditionally reduce Borrower's Obligations, but shall not be considered a payment on account unless such wire transfer is of immediately available federal funds and is made to the Collection Account or unless and until such check or other item of payment is honored when presented for payment. For purposes of computing interest and Fees, all payments shall be deemed received by Lender three (3) Business Days following receipt of immediately available funds in the Collection Account. For purposes of determining the Borrowing Availability, payments shall be deemed received by Lender upon receipt of immediately available funds in the Collection Account. 1.8 Application and Allocation of Payments. Borrower irrevocably agrees that Lender shall have the continuing and exclusive right to apply any and all payments against the then due and payable Obligations in such order as Lender may deem advisable. Lender is authorized to, and at its option may (without prior notice or precondition and at any time or times), but shall not be obligated to, make or cause to be made Revolving Credit Advances on behalf of Borrower for: (a) payment of all Fees, expenses, indemnities, charges, costs, principal, interest, or other Obligations owing by Borrower under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, (b) the payment, performance or satisfaction of any of Borrower's obligations with respect to preservation of the Collateral, or (c) any premium in whole or in part due in respect of any of the policies of insurance required by this Agreement, even if the making of any such Revolving Credit Advance causes the outstanding balance of the Revolving Credit Loan to exceed the Borrowing Availability, and Borrower agrees to repay within two Business Days following notice from Lender, in cash, any amount by which the Revolving Credit Loan exceeds the Borrowing Availability. 1.9 Accounting. Lender is authorized to record on its books and records the date and amount of each Revolving Credit Advance and each payment of principal thereof and such recordation shall constitute prima facie evidence of the accuracy of the information so recorded. Lender shall provide Borrower on a monthly basis a statement and accounting of such recordations but any failure on the part of the Lender to keep any such recordation (or any errors therein) or to send a statement thereof to Borrower shall not in any manner affect the obligation of Borrower to repay any of the Obligations. Except to the extent that Borrower shall, within 45 days after such statement and accounting is sent, notify Lender in writing of any objection Borrower may have thereto (stating with particularity the basis for such objection), such 4 <PAGE> statement and accounting shall be deemed final, binding and conclusive upon Borrower, absent manifest error. 1.10 Indemnity. Borrower and each other Credit Party executing this Agreement jointly and severally agree to indemnify and hold Lender and its Affiliates, and their respective employees, attorneys and agents (each, an "Indemnified Person"), harmless from and against any and all suits, actions, proceedings, claims, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses of any kind or nature whatsoever (including attorneys' fees and disbursements and other costs of investigation or defense, including those incurred upon any appeal) which may be instituted or asserted against or incurred by any such Indemnified Person as the result of credit having been extended, suspended or terminated under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents or with respect to the execution, delivery, enforcement, performance and administration of, or in any other way arising out of or relating to, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents or any other documents or transactions contemplated by or referred to herein or therein and any actions or failures to act with respect to any of the foregoing, including any and all product liabilities, Environmental Liabilities, Taxes and legal costs and expenses arising out of or incurred in connection with disputes between or among any parties to any of the Loan Documents (collectively, "Indemnified Liabilities"), except to the extent that any such Indemnified Liability is finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted solely from such Indemnified Person's gross negligence or willful misconduct. NO INDEMNIFIED PERSON SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO ANY CREDIT PARTY, ANY SUCCESSOR, ASSIGNEE OR THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY OR ANY OTHER PERSON ASSERTING CLAIMS DERIVATIVELY THROUGH SUCH PARTY, FOR ANY ACT OR FAILURE TO ACT UNDER ANY POWER OF ATTORNEY OR FOR INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHICH MAY BE ALLEGED AS A RESULT OF CREDIT HAVING BEEN EXTENDED, SUSPENDED OR TERMINATED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR AS A RESULT OF ANY OTHER TRANSACTION CONTEMPLATED HEREUNDER OR THEREUNDER. 1.11 Borrowing Base; Reserves. The Borrowing Base shall be determined by Lender (including the eligibility of Accounts) based on information available to Lender. The Revolving Credit Loan shall be subject to Lender's continuing right to withhold from Borrowing Availability pursuant to Section 1.2(f). 1.12 Accounts Management Services. Lender shall render for Borrower the services described in Schedule F attached hereto. 2. CONDITIONS PRECEDENT 2.1 Conditions to the Initial Loans.

Lender reserves the right at any time, upon review of each Credit Party's risk profile, to require additional forms and limits of insurance.

On the Closing Date, Borrower shall execute and deliver a Power of Attorney in the form attached as Exhibit H. The power of attorney granted pursuant to the Power of Attorney and all powers granted under any Loan Document are powers coupled with an interest and shall be irrevocable until the Termination Date.

(a) If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, then Lender may suspend the right of Borrower to request Revolving Credit Advances and any obligation of Lender to consider Borrower's requests for further Revolving Credit Advances. In addition, if any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Lender may, without notice, take any one or more of the following actions: (i) declare all or any portion of the Obligations to be forthwith due and payable, whereupon such Obligations shall become and be due and payable; or (ii) exercise any rights and remedies provided to Lender under the Loan Documents or at law or equity, including all remedies provided under the Code; provided, that upon the occurrence of any Event of Default specified in Sections 7.1 (e), (f) or (g), the Obligations shall become immediately due and payable (and any obligation of Lender to consider Borrower's requests for further Revolving Credit Advances, if not previously terminated, shall immediately be terminated) without declaration, notice or demand by Lender. (b) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Borrower and each other Credit Party executing this Agreement expressly agrees that upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, Lender may collect, receive, assemble, process, appropriate and realize upon the Collateral, or any part thereof, and may forthwith sell, lease, assign, give an option or options to purchase or otherwise dispose of and deliver said Collateral (or contract to do so), or any part thereof, in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at any exchange at such prices as it may deem best, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk. Lender shall have the right upon any such public sale, to the extent permitted by law, to purchase for the benefit of Lender the whole or any part of said Collateral so sold, free of any right of equity of redemption, which equity of redemption Borrower hereby releases. Such sales may be adjourned or continued from time to time with or without notice. Lender shall have the right to conduct such sales on any Credit Party's premises or elsewhere and shall have the right to use any Credit Party's premises without rent or other charge for such sales or other action with respect to the Collateral for such time as Lender deems necessary or advisable. (c) Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default and at Lender's request, Borrower agrees to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Lender at places which Lender shall reasonably select, whether at its premises or elsewhere in the United States of America. Until Lender is able to effect a sale, lease, or other disposition of the Collateral, Lender shall have the right to complete, assemble, use or operate the Collateral or any part thereof, to the extent that Lender deems appropriate, for the purpose of preserving such Collateral or its value or for any other purpose. Lender shall have no obligation to any Credit Party to maintain or preserve the rights of any Credit Party as against third parties with respect to any Collateral while such Collateral is in the possession of Lender. Lender may, if it so elects, seek the appointment of a receiver or keeper to take possession of any Collateral and to enforce any of Lender's remedies with respect thereto without prior notice or hearing. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Borrower and each other Credit Party executing this Agreement waives all claims, damages, and demands against Lender, its Affiliates, agents, and the officers and employees of any of them arising out of the repossession, retention or sale of any Collateral except such as are determined in a final judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have arisen solely out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of 22 <PAGE> such Person. Borrower and each other Credit Party executing this Agreement agrees that ten (10) days prior notice by Lender to such Credit Party of the time and place of any public sale or of the time after which a private sale may take place is reasonable notification of such matters. Borrower and each other Credit Party shall remain liable for any deficiency if the proceeds of any sale or disposition of the Collateral are insufficient to pay all amounts to which Lender is entitled. (d) Lender's rights and remedies under this Agreement shall be cumulative and nonexclusive of any other rights and remedies which Lender may have under any Loan Document or at law or in equity. Recourse to the Collateral shall not be required. All provisions of this Agreement are intended to be subject to all applicable mandatory provisions of law that may be controlling and to be limited, to the extent necessary, so that they do not render this Agreement invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part. 7.3 Waivers by Credit Parties. Except as otherwise provided for in this Agreement and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Borrower and each other Credit Party executing this Agreement waives: (a) presentment, demand and protest, and notice of presentment, dishonor, intent to accelerate, acceleration, protest, default, nonpayment, maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension or renewal of any or all Loan Documents, any notes, commercial paper, Accounts, Contracts, Documents, Instruments, Chattel Paper and guaranties at any time held by Lender on which such Credit Party may in any way be liable; (b) all rights to notice and a hearing prior to Lender's taking possession or control of, or to Lender's replevy, attachment or levy upon, any Collateral or any bond or security which might be required by any court prior to allowing Lender to exercise any of its remedies; and (c) the benefit of all valuation, appraisal and exemption laws. Borrower and each other Credit Party executing this Agreement acknowledges that it has been advised by counsel of its choices and decisions with respect to this Agreement, the other Loan Documents and the transactions evidenced hereby and thereby. 7.4 Proceeds. The Proceeds of any sale, disposition or other realization upon any Collateral shall be applied by Lender upon receipt to the Obligations in such order as Lender may deem advisable in its sole discretion, and after the indefeasible payment and satisfaction in full in cash of all of the Obligations, and after the payment by Lender of any other amount required by any provision of law, including Section 9-504(1)(c) of the Code (but only after Lender has received what Lender considers reasonable proof of a subordinate party's security interest), the surplus, if any, shall be paid to Borrower or its representatives or to whomsoever may be lawfully entitled to receive the same, or as a court of competent jurisdiction may direct. 8. SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS Each Loan Document shall be binding on and shall inure to the benefit of Borrower and each other Credit Party executing such Loan Document, Lender, and their respective successors and assigns, except as otherwise provided herein or therein. Neither Borrower nor any other Credit Party may assign, transfer, hypothecate, delegate or otherwise convey its rights, benefits, obligations or duties under any Loan Document without the prior express written consent of Lender. Any such purported conveyance by Borrower or such Credit Party without the prior express written consent of Lender shall be void. There shall be no third party beneficiaries of any of the terms and provisions of any of the Loan Documents. Lender 23 <PAGE> reserves the right at any time to create and sell participations in the Revolving Credit Loan and the Loan Documents and to sell, transfer or assign any or all of its rights in the Revolving Credit Loan and under the Loan Documents. 9. MISCELLANEOUS 9.1 Complete Agreement; Modification of Agreement. This Agreement and the other Loan Documents constitute the complete agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof, supersede all prior agreements, commitments, understandings or inducements (oral or written, expressed or implied). No Loan Document may be modified, altered or amended except by a written agreement signed by Lender, and each other Credit Party that is a party to such Loan Document. Borrower and each other Credit Party executing this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall have all duties and obligations under this Agreement and such other Loan Documents from the date of its execution and delivery, regardless of whether the initial Revolving Credit Advance has been funded at that time. 9.2 Expenses. Borrower agrees to pay or reimburse Lender for all costs and expenses (including the fees and expenses of all counsel, advisors, consultants (including environmental and management consultants) and auditors retained in connection therewith) incurred in connection with: (a) the preparation, negotiation, execution, delivery, performance and enforcement of the Loan Documents and the preservation of any rights thereunder; (b) collection of Accounts following the occurrence of an Event of Default, including deficiency collections; (c) the forwarding to Borrower or any other Person on behalf of Borrower by Lender of the proceeds of any Revolving Credit Advance (including a wire transfer fee of $25 per wire transfer); (d) any amendment, waiver or other modification with respect to any Loan Document or advice in connection with any such amendment, waiver or modification or the rights thereunder; (e) any litigation, dispute, suit, proceeding or action (whether instituted by or between any combination of Lender, Borrower or any other Person), and an appeal or review thereof, in any way relating to the Collateral, any Loan Document, or any action taken or any other agreements to be executed or delivered in connection therewith, whether as a party, witness or otherwise (provided, however, that in a dispute between Borrower and Lender, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the non-prevailing party all costs, fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees) and expenses incurred in connection with such dispute); and (f) any effort to verify, protect, evaluate, assess, appraise, collect, sell, liquidate or otherwise dispose of the Collateral. 9.3 No Waiver. Neither Lender's failure, at any time, to require strict performance by Borrower or any other Credit Party of any provision of any Loan Document, nor Lender's failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, any right, power or privilege hereunder, shall operate as a waiver thereof or waive, affect or diminish any right of Lender thereafter to demand strict compliance and performance therewith. No single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder shall preclude any other or future exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. Any suspension or waiver of an Event of Default or other provision under the Loan Documents shall not suspend, waive or affect any other Event of Default or other provision under any Loan Document, and shall not be construed as a bar to any right or remedy which Lender would otherwise have had on any future occasion. None of the 24 <PAGE> undertakings, indemnities, agreements, warranties, covenants and representations of Borrower or any other Credit Party to Lender contained in any Loan Document and no Event of Default by Borrower or any other Credit Party under any Loan Document shall be deemed to have been suspended or waived by Lender, unless such waiver or suspension is by an instrument in writing signed by an officer or other authorized employee of Lender and directed to Borrower specifying such suspension or waiver (and then such waiver shall be effective only to the extent therein expressly set forth), and Lender shall not, by any act (other than execution of a formal written waiver), delay, omission or otherwise, be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies hereunder. 9.4 Severability; Section Titles. Wherever possible, each provision of the Loan Documents shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of any Loan Document shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of such Loan Document. Except as otherwise expressly provided for in the Loan Documents, no termination or cancellation (regardless of cause or procedure) of any financing arrangement under the Loan Documents shall in any way affect or impair the Obligations, duties, covenants, representations and warranties, indemnities, and liabilities of Borrower or any other Credit Party or the rights of Lender relating to any unpaid Obligation (due or not due, liquidated, contingent or unliquidated), or any transaction or event occurring prior to such termination, or any transaction or event, the performance of which is not required until after the Revolving Credit Loan Termination Date, all of which shall not terminate or expire, but rather shall survive such termination or cancellation and shall continue in full force and effect until the Termination Date; provided, that all indemnity obligations of the Credit Parties under the Loan Documents shall survive the Termination Date and shall continue until the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations. The Section titles contained in any Loan Document are and shall be without substantive meaning or content of any kind whatsoever and are not a part of the agreement between the parties hereto. 9.5 Authorized Signature. Until Lender shall be notified in writing by Borrower or any other Credit Party to the contrary, the signature upon any document or instrument delivered pursuant hereto and believed by Lender or any of Lender's officers, agents, or employees to be that of an officer of Borrower or such other Credit Party shall bind Borrower and such other Credit Party and be deemed to be the act of Borrower or such other Credit Party affixed pursuant to and in accordance with resolutions duly adopted by Borrower's or such other Credit Party's Board of Directors, and Lender shall be entitled to assume the authority of each signature and authority of the person whose signature it is or appears to be unless the person acting in reliance thereon shall have actual knowledge to the contrary. 9.6 Notices. Except as otherwise provided herein, whenever any notice, demand, request or other communication shall or may be given to or served upon any party by any other party, or whenever any party desires to give or serve upon any other party any communication with respect to this Agreement, each such communication shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been validly served, given or delivered (a) upon the earlier of actual receipt and three (3) days after deposit in the United States Mail, registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, with proper postage prepaid, (b) upon transmission, when sent by 25 <PAGE> telecopy or other similar facsimile transmission (with such telecopy or facsimile promptly confirmed by delivery of a copy by personal delivery or United States Mail as otherwise provided in this Section 9.6), (c) one (1) Business Day after deposit with a reputable overnight courier with all charges prepaid or (d) when hand-delivered, all of which shall be addressed to the party to be notified and sent to the address or facsimile number indicated in Schedule B or to such other address (or facsimile number) as may be substituted by notice given as herein provided. Failure or delay in delivering copies of any such communication to any Person (other than Borrower or Lender) designated in Schedule B to receive copies shall in no way adversely affect the effectiveness of such communication. 9.7 Counterparts. Any Loan Document may be authenticated in any number of separate counterparts by any one or more of the parties thereto, and all of said counterparts taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument. Any Loan Document may be authenticated by manual signature, facsimile or, if approved in writing by Lender, electronic means, all of which shall be equally valid. 9.8 Time of the Essence. Time is of the essence for performance of the Obligations under the Loan Documents. 9.9 GOVERNING LAW.
