LOAN AND TERMS OF PAYMENT. For value received, Borrower promises to pay to the order of Bank such amount, as provided for below, together with interest, as provided for below. 2.1 Upon the request of Borrower, made at any time and from time to time during the term hereof, and so long as no Event of Default has occurred, Bank shall lend to Borrower an amount equal to the Credit Limit minus all Letter of Credit Obligations. If at any time for any reason, the amount of Indebtedness owed by Borrower to Bank pursuant to this Section 2.1 and Section 2.3 of this Agreement is greater than the aggregate amount available to be drawn under this Section 2.1, Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank, in cash, the amount of such excess. 3 <PAGE> 2.2 Except as hereinafter provided, the Credit shall bear interest, on the Daily Balance owing, at a fluctuating rate of interest, depending on the Hansen Natural's consolidated Senior EBITDA in accordance with the table below, equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Base Margin or at the LIBOR Option Rate (as defined and determined in accordance with the LIBOR Addendum attached hereto) plus the Applicable LIBOR Margin. Applicable Applicable Applicable Letter Senior Debt To EBITDA LIBOR Margin Base Rate Margin of Credit Fee --------------------- ------------ ---------------- ----------------- Less than 1.5:1.00 1.25% Minus 1.50% 1.25 % Equal to or greater than 1.5:1.00 but Less than 2.51.00 1.50% Minus 1.25% 1.50% Equal to or greater than 2.5:1.00 1.75 Minus 1.00% 1.75% Each semi annual period of the Borrower, the Applicable Base Rate Margin, the Applicable LIBOR Rate Margin and the applicable Letter of Credit Fee will be determined by the Bank after review of the Senior Debt to EBITDA of Hansen Natural on a consolidated basis according to the June 30 10Q's and December 31 10-K's of Hansen Natural. The Bank will determine the Applicable Base Rate Margin and the Applicable LIBOR Rate Margin for each semi-annual period on the 60th day following the last day of each such period. The Senior Debt to EBITDA at June 30 and December 31, must meet the above referenced thresholds for any decrease in the Applicable LIBOR Rate Margin and the Applicable Base Rate Margin to occur and the Applicable Letter of Credit Fee to decrease. The initial Applicable LIBOR Margin is 1.25% the initial Applicable Base Rate margin is minus 1.50 % and the initial Letter of Credit Fee is 1.25%. All interest chargeable under this Agreement that is based upon a per annum calculation shall be computed on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360) day year for actual days elapsed. The Base Rate as of the date of this Agreement is five percent (5.00%) per annum. In the event that the Base Rate announced is, from time to time hereafter, changed, adjustment in the Base Rate shall be made and based on the Base Rate in effect on the date of such change. The Base Rate, as adjusted, shall apply to the Credit until the Base Rate is adjusted again. All interest payable by Borrower under the Credit shall be due and payable on the first day of each calendar month during the term of this Agreement. A late payment charge equal to five percent (5%) of each late payment may be charged on any payment not received by Bank within ten (10) calendar days after the payment due date, but acceptance of payment of this charge shall not waive any Event of Default under this Agreement. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default hereunder, and without constituting a waiver of any such Event of Default, then during the continuation thereof, at Bank's option, the Credit shall bear interest, on the Daily Balance owing, at a rate equal to three percent (3%) per year in excess of the rate applicable immediately prior to the occurrence of the Event of Default, and such rate of interest shall fluctuate thereafter from time to time at the same time and in the same amount as any fluctuation in the rate of interest applicable immediately prior to any such occurrence. 2.3 Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Bank agrees to issue or cause to be issued letters of credit for the account of Borrower during the term of this Agreement in the aggregate outstanding face amount not to exceed the Credit Limit minus the then outstanding Daily Balance, provided that the Letter of Credit Obligations shall not in any case exceed One Million Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($1,200,000). All letters of credit shall be, in form and substance, acceptable to Bank in its sole discretion and shall be subject to the terms and conditions of Bank's form of standard Letter of Credit Application and Agreement. The obligation of Borrower to immediately reimburse Bank for drawings made under letters of credit shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Letter of Credit Application and Agreement with respect to each such letter of credit. Borrower shall indemnify, defend, protect and hold Bank harmless from any loss, cost, expense, or liability, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees incurred by Bank, whether in-house or outside counsel is used, arising out of or in connection with any letters of credit. 3. TERM. 3.1 This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect until June 1, 2006, unless earlier terminated by notice by Borrower. Notice of such termination by Borrower shall be effectuated by mailing of a registered or certified letter not less than thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of such termination, addressed to Bank at the address set forth herein and the termination shall be effective as of the date so fixed in such notice. 3.2 Notwithstanding the foregoing, should Borrower be in default of one or more of the provisions of this Agreement, Bank may terminate this Agreement at any time without notice. Notwithstanding the foregoing, should either Bank or Borrower become insolvent or unable to meet its debts as they mature, or fail, suspend, or go out of business, the other party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement at any time without notice. On the date of termination all Indebtedness shall become immediately due and payable without notice or demand; provided, however, that no such notice of termination by Borrower shall be effective until the payment in full in cash of all Indebtedness to Bank (including without limitation the expiration or cash collateralization of all Letter of Credit Obligations in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement). Any notice of termination given by Borrower shall be irrevocable unless Bank otherwise agrees in writing, and Bank shall have no obligation to make any loans or issue any letters of credit on or after the termination date stated in such notice. Borrower may elect to terminate this Agreement in its entirety only. No section of this Agreement or type of loan available hereunder may be terminated singly. 3.3 All undertakings, agreements, covenants, warranties, and representations of Borrower contained in this Agreement or any other document, instrument or agreement entered into with or in favor of Bank in connection herewith shall survive any such termination, and Bank shall retain its security interest in and to all existing Collateral and Collateral arising thereafter, any and all liens thereon, and all of its rights and remedies under this Agreement or any other document, instrument or agreement entered into with or in favor of Bank in connection herewith notwithstanding such termination until the payment in full in cash of all Indebtedness to Bank (including, without limitation, the expiration or cash collateralization of all of all Letter of Credit Obligations in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the payment in full of all applicable termination charges, if any). Notwithstanding the satisfaction in full of the Indebtedness, Bank shall not be required to terminate its security interests in the Collateral unless, with respect to any loss or damage Bank may incur as a result of dishonored checks or other items of payment received by Bank and applied to the Indebtedness, Bank shall, at its option, (a) have received a written agreement, executed by Borrower and by any Person whose loans or other advances to Borrower are used in whole or in part to satisfy the Indebtedness, indemnifying Bank from any such loss or damage, or (b) have retained such monetary reserves and liens on the Collateral for such period of time as Bank, in its reasonable discretion, may deem necessary to protect Bank from any such loss or damage. 4 <PAGE> 3.4 After termination and when Bank has received payment in full of Borrower's Indebtedness to Bank, Bank shall reassign to Borrower all Collateral held by Bank, and shall execute a termination of all security agreements and security interests given by Borrower to Bank. 4. CREATION OF SECURITY INTEREST. 4.1 Borrower hereby grants to Bank a continuing security interest in all presently existing and hereafter arising Collateral in order to secure prompt repayment of any and all Indebtedness owed by Borrower to Bank and in order to secure prompt performance by Borrower of each and all of its covenants and obligations under this Agreement and otherwise created. Bank's security interest in the Collateral shall attach to all Collateral without further act on the part of Bank or Borrower. In the event that any Collateral, including proceeds, is evidenced by or consists of Negotiable Collateral, Borrower, immediately upon the request of Bank, shall (a) endorse or assign such Negotiable Collateral to Bank, (b) deliver actual physical possession of such Negotiable Collateral to Bank, and (c) mark conspicuously all of its records pertaining to such Negotiable Collateral with a legend, in form and substance satisfactory to Bank (and in the case of Negotiable Collateral consisting of tangible chattel paper, immediately mark all such tangible chattel paper with a conspicuous legend in form and substance satisfactory to Bank), indicating that the Negotiable Collateral is subject to the security interest granted to Bank hereunder. 4.2 Bank's security interest in the Accounts shall attach to all Accounts without further act on the part of Bank or Borrower. Upon request from Bank, Borrower shall provide Bank with schedules describing all Accounts created or acquired by Borrower (including without limitation agings listing the names and addresses of, and amounts owing by date by account debtors), and shall execute and deliver written assignments of all Accounts to Bank all in a form acceptable to Bank; provided, however, Borrower's failure to execute and deliver such schedules and/or assignments shall not affect or limit Bank's security interest and other rights in and to the Accounts. Together with each schedule, Borrower shall furnish Bank with copies of Borrower's customers' invoices or the equivalent, and original shipping or delivery receipts for all merchandise sold, and Borrower warrants the genuineness thereof. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Bank or Bank's designee may notify customers or account debtors of Bank's security interest in the Collateral and direct such customers or account debtors to make payments directly to Bank, but unless and until Bank does so or gives Borrower other written instructions, Borrower shall collect all Accounts for Bank, receive in trust all payments thereon as Bank's trustee, and, if so requested to do so from Bank, Borrower shall immediately deliver said payments to Bank in their original form as received from the account debtor and all letters of credit, advices of credit, instruments, documents, chattel paper or any similar property evidencing or constituting Collateral. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if sales of Inventory are made for cash, Borrower shall immediately deliver to Bank, in identical form, all such cash, checks, or other forms of payment which Borrower receives. The receipt of any check or other item of payment by Bank shall not be considered a payment on account until such check or other item of payment is honored when presented for payment, in which event, said check or other item of payment shall be deemed to have been paid to Bank two (2) calendar days after the date Bank actually receives such check or other item of payment. 4.3 Bank's security interest in Inventory shall attach to all Inventory without further act on the part of Bank or Borrower. Borrower will at Borrower's expense pledge, assemble and deliver such Inventory to Bank or to a third party as Bank's bailee; or hold the same in trust for Bank's account or store the same in a warehouse in Bank's name; or deliver to Bank documents of title representing said Inventory; or evidence of Bank's security interest in some other manner acceptable to Bank. Until a default by Borrower under this Agreement or any other Agreement between Borrower and Bank, Borrower may, subject to the provisions hereof and consistent herewith, sell the Inventory, but only in the ordinary course of Borrower's business. A sale of Inventory in Borrower's ordinary course of business does not include an exchange or a transfer in partial or total satisfaction of a debt owing by Borrower. 4.4 Concurrently with Borrower's execution of this Agreement, and at any time or times hereafter at the request of Bank, Borrower shall (a) execute and deliver to Bank security agreements, mortgages, assignments, certificates of title, affidavits, reports, notices, schedules of accounts, letters of authority and all other documents that Bank may reasonably request, in form satisfactory to Bank, to perfect and maintain perfected Bank's security interest in the Collateral and in order to fully consummate all of the transactions contemplated under this Agreement, (b) cooperate with Bank in obtaining a control agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Bank with respect to all deposit accounts, electronic chattel paper, investment property, and letter-of-credit rights, and (c) in the event that any Collateral is in the possession of a third party, Borrower shall join with Bank in notifying such third party of Bank's security interest and obtaining an acknowledgment from such third party that it is holding such Collateral for the benefit of Bank. By authenticating or becoming bound by this Agreement, Borrower authorizes the filing of initial financing statement(s), and any amendment(s) covering the Collateral to perfect and maintain perfected Bank's security interest in the Collateral. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Borrower hereby irrevocably makes, constitutes and appoints Bank (and any of Bank's officers, employees or agents designated by Bank) as Borrower's true and lawful attorney-in-fact with power to sign the name of Borrower on any security agreement, mortgage, assignment, certificate of title, affidavit, letter of authority, notice of other similar documents which must be executed and/or filed in order to perfect or continue perfected Bank's security interest in the Collateral, and to take such actions in its own name or in Borrower's name as Bank, in its sole discretion, deems necessary or appropriate to establish exclusive possession or control (as defined in the Uniform Commercial Code) over any Collateral of such nature that perfection of Bank's security interest may be accomplished by possession or control. 4.5 Borrower shall make appropriate entries in Borrower's Books disclosing Bank's security interest in the Accounts. Bank (through any of its officers, employees or agents) shall have the right at any time or times hereafter, provided that reasonable notice is provided, during Borrower's usual business hours, or during the usual business hours of any third party having control over the records of Borrower, to inspect and verify Borrower's Books in order to verify the amount or condition of, or any other matter, relating to, said Collateral and Borrower's financial condition. 4.6 Effective only upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Borrower appoints Bank or any other person whom Bank may designate as Borrower's attorney-in-fact, with power: to endorse Borrower's name on any checks, notes, acceptances, money order, drafts or other forms of payment or security that may come into Bank's possession; to sign Borrower's name on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any Accounts, on drafts against account debtors, on schedules and assignments of Accounts, on verifications of Accounts and on notices to account debtors; to establish a lock box arrangement and/or to notify the post office authorities to change the address for delivery of Borrower's mail addressed to Borrower to an address designated by Bank, to receive and open all mail addressed to Borrower, and to retain all mail relating to the Collateral and forward all other mail to Borrower; to send, whether in writing or by telephone, requests for verification of Accounts; and to do all things necessary to carry out this Agreement. Borrower ratifies and approves all acts of the attorney-in-fact. Neither Bank nor its attorney-in-fact will be liable for any acts or omissions or for any error of judgement or mistake of fact or law. This power being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable so long as any Accounts in which Bank has a security interest remain unpaid and until the Indebtedness has been fully satisfied. 5 <PAGE> 4.7 In order to protect or perfect any security interest which Bank is granted hereunder, Bank may, in its sole discretion, discharge any lien or encumbrance or bond the same, pay any insurance, maintain guards, warehousemen, or any personnel to protect the Collateral, pay any service bureau, or, obtain any records, and all costs for the same shall be added to the Indebtedness and shall be payable on demand. 4.8 Borrower agrees that Bank may provide information relating to this Agreement or relating to Borrower to Bank's parent, affiliates, subsidiaries and service providers. 5.

This disclaimer of warranties will not render the sale commercially unreasonable; h. Bank shall give notice of the disposition of the Collateral as follows: (1) Bank shall give Borrower and each holder of a security interest in the Collateral who has filed with Bank a written request for notice, a notice in writing of the time and place of public sale, or, if the sale is a private sale or some disposition other than a public sale is to be made of the Collateral, the time on or after which the private sale or other disposition is to be made; (2) The notice shall be personally delivered or mailed, postage prepaid, to Borrower's address appearing in this Agreement, at least ten (10) calendar days before the date fixed for the sale, or at least ten (10) calendar days before the date on or after which the private sale or other disposition is to be made, unless the Collateral is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in value. Notice to persons other than Borrower claiming an interest in the Collateral shall be sent to such addresses as have been furnished to Bank or as otherwise determined in accordance with Section 9611 of the Uniform Commercial Code; and (3) If the sale is to be a public sale, Bank shall also give notice of the time and place by publishing a notice one time at least ten (10) calendar days before the date of the sale in a newspaper of general circulation in the county in which the sale is to be held; and (4) Bank may credit bid and purchase at any public sale. i. Borrower shall pay all Bank Expenses incurred in connection with Bank's enforcement and exercise of any of its rights and remedies as herein provided, whether or not suit is commenced by Bank; j. Any deficiency which exists after disposition of the Collateral as provided above will be paid immediately by Borrower. Any excess will be returned, without interest and subject to the rights of third parties, to Borrower by Bank, or, in Bank's discretion, to any party who Bank believes, in good faith, is entitled to the excess; k. Without constituting a retention of Collateral in satisfaction of an obligation within the meaning of 9620 of the Uniform Commercial Code or an action under California Code of Civil Procedure 726, apply any and all amounts maintained by Borrower as deposit accounts (as that term is defined under 9102 of the Uniform Commercial Code) or other accounts that Borrower maintains with Bank against the Indebtedness; 12 <PAGE> l. The proceeds of any sale or other disposition of Collateral authorized by this Agreement shall be applied by Bank first upon all expenses authorized by the Uniform Commercial Code and all reasonable attorney fees and legal expenses incurred by Bank, whether in-house or outside counsel is used, the balance of the proceeds of the sale or other disposition shall be applied in the payment of the Indebtedness, first to interest, then to principal, then to remaining Indebtedness and the surplus, if any, shall be paid over to Borrower or to such other person(s) as may be entitled to it under applicable law. Borrower shall remain liable for any deficiency, which it shall pay to Bank immediately upon demand. Borrower agrees that Bank shall be under no obligation to accept any noncash proceeds in connection with any sale or disposition of Collateral unless failure to do so would be commercially unreasonable. If Bank agrees in its sole discretion to accept noncash proceeds (unless the failure to do so would be commercially unreasonable), Bank may ascribe any commercially reasonable value to such proceeds. Without limiting the foregoing, Bank may apply any discount factor in determining the present value of proceeds to be received in the future or may elect to apply proceeds to be received in the future only as and when such proceeds are actually received in cash by Bank; and m. The following shall be the basis for any finder of fact's determination of the value of any Collateral which is the subject matter of a disposition giving rise to a calculation of any surplus or deficiency under Section 9615(f) of the Uniform Commercial Code: (i) The Collateral which is the subject matter of the disposition shall be valued in an "as is" condition as of the date of the disposition, without any assumption or expectation that such Collateral will be repaired or improved in any manner; (ii) the valuation shall be based upon an assumption that the transferee of such Collateral desires a resale of the Collateral for cash promptly (but no later than 30 days) following the disposition; (iii) all reasonable closing costs customarily borne by the seller in commercial sales transactions relating to property similar to such Collateral shall be deducted including, without limitation, brokerage commissions, tax prorations, attorney's fees, whether in-house or outside counsel is used, and marketing costs; (iv) the value of the Collateral which is the subject matter of the disposition shall be further discounted to account for any estimated holding costs associated with maintaining such Collateral pending sale (to the extent not accounted for in (iii) above), and other maintenance, operational and ownership expenses; and (v) any expert opinion testimony given or considered in connection with a determination of the value of such Collateral must be given by persons having at least 5 years experience in appraising property similar to the Collateral and who have conducted and prepared a complete written appraisal of such Collateral taking into consideration the factors set forth above. The "value" of any such Collateral shall be a factor in determining the amount of proceeds which would have been realized in a disposition to a transferee other than a secured party, a person related to a secured party or a secondary obligor under Section 9615(f) of the Uniform Commercial Code. 8.2 In addition to any and all other rights and remedies available to Bank under or pursuant to this Agreement or any other documents, instrument or agreement contemplated hereby, Borrower acknowledges and agrees that (i) at any time following the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, and/or (ii) termination of Bank's commitment or obligation to make loans or advances or otherwise extent credit to or in favor of Borrower hereunder, in the event that and to the extent that there are any Letter of Credit Obligations outstanding at such time, upon demand of Bank, Borrower shall deliver to Bank, or cause to be delivered to Bank, cash collateral in an amount not less than such Letter of Credit Obligations, which cash collateral shall be held and retained by Bank as cash collateral for the repayment of such Letter of Credit Obligations, together with any and all other Indebtedness of Borrower to Bank remaining unpaid, and Borrower pledges to Bank and grants to Bank a continuing first priority security interest in such cash collateral so delivered to Bank. Alternatively, Borrower shall cause to be delivered to Bank an irrevocable standby letter of credit issued in favor of Bank by a bank acceptable to Bank, in its sole discretion, in an amount not less than such Letter of Credit Obligations, and upon terms acceptable to Bank, in its sole discretion. 8.3 Bank's rights and remedies under this Agreement and all other agreements shall be cumulative. Bank shall have all other rights and remedies not inconsistent herewith as provided by law or in equity. No exercise by Bank of one right or remedy shall be deemed an election, and no waiver by Bank of any default on Borrower's part shall be deemed a continuing waiver. No delay by Bank shall constitute a waiver, election or acquiescence by Bank. 9. TAXES AND EXPENSES REGARDING BORROWER'S PROPERTY. If Borrower fails to pay promptly when due to another person or entity, monies which Borrower is required to pay by reason of any provision in this Agreement, Bank may, but need not, pay the same and charge Borrower's loan account therefor, and Borrower shall promptly reimburse Bank. All such sums shall become additional Indebtedness owing to Bank, shall bear interest at the rate hereinabove provided, and shall be secured by all Collateral. Any payments made by Bank shall not constitute (i) an agreement by it to make similar payments in the future or (ii) a waiver by Bank of any default under this Agreement. Bank need not inquire as to, or contest the validity of, any such expense, tax, security interest, encumbrance or lien and the receipt of the usual official notice of the payment thereof shall be conclusive evidence that the same was validly due and owing. Such payments shall constitute Bank Expenses and additional advances to Borrower. 10. WAIVERS. 10.1 Borrower agrees that checks and other instruments received by Bank in payment or on account of Borrower's Indebtedness constitute only conditional payment until such items are actually paid to Bank and Borrower waives the right to direct the application of any and all payments at any time or times hereafter received by Bank on account of Borrower's Indebtedness and Borrower agrees that Bank shall have the continuing exclusive right to apply and reapply such payments in any manner as Bank may deem advisable, notwithstanding any entry by Bank upon its books. 10.2 Borrower waives demand, protest, notice of protest, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension or renewal of any or all commercial paper, accounts, documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees at any time held by Bank on which Borrower may in any way be liable. 10.3 Bank shall not in any way or manner be liable or responsible for (a) the safekeeping of the Inventory; (b) any loss or damage thereto occurring or arising in any manner or fashion from any cause; (c) any diminution in the value thereof; or (d) any act or default of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, forwarding agency or other person whomsoever. All risk of loss, damage or destruction of Inventory shall be borne by Borrower. 10.4 Borrower waives the right and the right to assert a confidential relationship, if any, it may have with any accountant, accounting firm and/or service bureau or consultant in connection with any information requested by Bank pursuant to or in accordance with this Agreement, and agrees that a Bank may contact directly any such accountants, accounting firm and/or service bureau or consultant in order to obtain such information. 10.5 JURY WAIVER AND REFERENCE PROVISIONS. 10.5.1 JURY WAIVER 13 <PAGE> THE UNDERSIGNED AND THE BANK ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IS A CONSTITUTIONAL ONE, BUT THAT IT MAY BE WAIVED. EACH PARTY, AFTER CONSULTING (OR HAVING HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONSULT) WITH COUNSEL OF THEIR CHOICE, KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY, AND FOR THEIR MUTUAL BENEFIT, WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN THE EVENT OF LITIGATION REGARDING THE PERFORMANCE OR ENFORCEMENT OF, OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO, THIS AGREEMENT OR THE INDEBTEDNESS. 10.5.2 REFERENCE PROVISIONS a. The parties prefer that any dispute between them be resolved in litigation subject to a Jury Trial Waiver as set forth in the Loan Documents (defined below), but the availability of that process is in doubt because of the opinion of the California Court of Appeal in Grafton Partners LP v. Superior Court, 9 Cal.Rptr.3d 511. This Reference Provision will be applicable until the California Supreme Court completes its review of that case, and will continue to be applicable if either that court or a California Court of Appeal publishes a decision holding that a pre-dispute Jury Trial Waiver provision similar to that contained in the Loan Documents is invalid or unenforceable. Delay in requesting appointment of a referee pending review of any such decision, or participation in litigation pending review, will not be deemed a waiver of this Reference Provision. b. Other than (i) nonjudicial foreclosure of security interests in real or personal property, (ii) the appointment of a receiver or (iii) the exercise of other provisional remedies (any of which may be initiated pursuant to applicable law), any controversy, dispute or claim (each, a "Claim") between the parties arising out of or relating to this Agreement or any other document, instrument or agreement between the Bank and the undersigned (collectively in this Section, the "Loan Documents"), will be resolved by a reference proceeding in California in accordance with the provisions of Section 638 et seq. of the California Code of Civil Procedure ("CCP"), or their successor sections, which shall constitute the exclusive remedy for the resolution of any Claim, including whether the Claim is subject to the reference proceeding. Except as otherwise provided in the Loan Documents, venue for the reference proceeding will be in the Superior Court or Federal District Court in the County or District where the real property, if any, is located or in a County or District where venue is otherwise appropriate under applicable law (the "Court"). c. The referee shall be a retired Judge or Justice selected by mutual written agreement of the parties. If the parties do not agree, the referee shall be selected by the Presiding Judge of the Court (or his or her representative). A request for appointment of a referee may be heard on an ex parte or expedited basis, and the parties agree that irreparable harm would result if ex parte relief is not granted. The referee shall be appointed to sit with all the powers provided by law. Each party shall have one peremptory challenge pursuant to CCP Section 170.6. Pending appointment of the referee, the Court has power to issue temporary or provisional remedies. d. The parties agree that time is of the essence in conducting the reference proceedings. Accordingly, the referee shall be requested to (a) set the matter for a status and trial- setting conference within fifteen (15) days after the date of selection of the referee, (b) if practicable, try all issues of law or fact within ninety (90) days after the date of the conference and (c) report a statement of decision within twenty (20) days after the matter has been submitted for decision. Any decision rendered by the referee will be final, binding and conclusive, and judgment shall be entered pursuant to CCP Section 644. e. The referee will have power to expand or limit the amount and duration of discovery. The referee may set or extend discovery deadlines or cutoffs for good cause, including a party's failure to provide requested discovery for any reason whatsoever. Unless otherwise ordered, no party shall be entitled to "priority" in conducting discovery, depositions may be taken by either party upon seven (7) days written notice, and all other discovery shall be responded to within fifteen (15) days after service. All disputes relating to discovery which cannot be resolved by the parties shall be submitted to the referee whose decision shall be final and binding. f. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, the referee shall determine the manner in which the reference proceeding is conducted including the time and place of hearings, the order of presentation of evidence, and all other questions that arise with respect to the course of the reference proceeding. All proceedings and hearings conducted before the referee, except for trial, shall be conducted without a court reporter, except that when any party so requests, a court reporter will be used at any hearing conducted before the referee, and the referee will be provided a courtesy copy of the transcript. The party making such a request shall have the obligation to arrange for and pay the court reporter. Subject to the referee's power to award costs to the prevailing party, the parties will equally share the cost of the referee and the court reporter at trial. g. The referee shall be required to determine all issues in accordance with existing case law and the statutory laws of the State of California. The rules of evidence applicable to proceedings at law in the State of California will be applicable to the reference proceeding. The referee shall be empowered to enter equitable as well as legal relief, provide all temporary or provisional remedies, enter equitable orders that will be binding on the parties and rule on any motion which would be authorized in a trial, including without limitation motions for summary judgment or summary adjudication. The referee shall issue a decision at the close of the reference proceeding which disposes of all claims of the parties that are the subject of the reference. The referee's decision shall be entered by the Court as a judgment or an order in the same manner as if the action had been tried by the Court. The parties reserve the right to appeal from the final judgment or order or from any appealable decision or order entered by the referee. The parties reserve the right to findings of fact, conclusions of laws, a written statement of decision, and the right to move for a new trial or a different judgment, which new trial, if granted, is also to be a reference proceeding under this provision. h. If the enabling legislation which provides for appointment of a referee is repealed (and no successor statute is enacted), any dispute between the parties that would otherwise be determined by reference procedure will be resolved and determined by arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted by a retired judge or Justice, in accordance with the California Arbitration Act Section 1280 through Section 1294.2 of the CCP as amended from time to time. The limitations with respect to discovery set forth above shall apply to any such arbitration proceeding. i. THE PARTIES RECOGNIZE AND AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES RESOLVED UNDER THIS REFERENCE PROVISION WILL BE DECIDED BY A REFEREE AND NOT BY A JURY, AND THAT THEY ARE IN EFFECT WAIVING THEIR RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN AGREEING TO THIS REFERENCE PROVISION. AFTER CONSULTING (OR HAVING HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO CONSULT) WITH COUNSEL OF THEIR OWN CHOICE, EACH PARTY KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY AND FOR THEIR MUTUAL BENEFIT AGREES THAT THIS REFERENCE PROVISION WILL APPLY TO ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN THEM WHICH ARISES OUT OF OR IS RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE LOAN DOCUMENTS 14 <PAGE> 10.6 In the event that Bank elects to waive any rights or remedies hereunder, or compliance with any of the terms hereof, or delays or fails to pursue or enforce any term, such waiver, delay or failure to pursue or enforce shall only be effective with respect to that single act and shall not be construed to affect any subsequent transactions or Bank's right to later pursue such rights and remedies. 11. ONE CONTINUING LOAN TRANSACTION. All loans and advances heretofore, now or at any time or times hereafter made by Bank to Borrower under this Agreement or any other agreement between Bank and Borrower, shall constitute one loan secured by Bank's security interests in the Collateral and by all other security interests, liens, encumbrances heretofore, now or from time to time hereafter granted by Borrower to Bank. Notwithstanding the above, (i) to the extent that any portion of the Indebtedness is a consumer loan, that portion shall not be secured by any deed of trust or mortgage on or other security interest in Borrower's principal dwelling which is not a purchase money security interest as to that portion, unless expressly provided to the contrary in another place, or (ii) if Borrower (or any of them) has (have) given or give(s) Bank a deed of trust or mortgage covering real property, that deed of trust or mortgage shall not secure the loan and any other Indebtedness of Borrower (or any of them), unless expressly provided to the contrary in another place. 12. NOTICES. Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, all notices or demands by either party on the other relating to this Agreement shall be in writing and sent by regular United States mail, postage prepaid, properly addressed to Borrower or to Bank at the addresses stated in this Agreement, or to such other addresses as Borrower or Bank may from time to time specify to the other in writing. Requests for information made to Borrower by Bank from time to time hereunder may be made orally or in writing, at Bank's discretion. 13. AUTHORIZATION TO DISBURSE. Bank is hereby authorized to make loans and advances hereunder upon telephonic or other instructions received from anyone purporting to be an officer, employee, or representative of Borrower, or at the discretion of Bank if said loans and advances are necessary to meet any Indebtedness of Borrower to Bank. Bank shall have no duty to make inquiry or verify the authority of any such party, and Borrower shall hold Bank harmless from any damage, claims or liability by reason of Bank's honor of, or failure to honor, any such instructions. 14. PAYMENTS. Borrower hereby authorizes Bank to deduct the full amount of any interest, fees, costs, or Bank Expenses due under this Agreement and not paid or collected when due in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof from any account maintained by Borrower with Bank. Should there be insufficient funds in any such account to pay all such sums when due, the full amount of such deficiency shall be immediately due and payable by Borrower; provided, however, that Bank shall not be obligated to advance funds to cover any such payment. 15. DESTRUCTION OF BORROWER'S DOCUMENTS. Any documents, schedules, invoices or other papers delivered to Bank, may be destroyed or otherwise disposed of by Bank six (6) months after they are delivered to or received by Bank, unless Borrower requests, in writing, the return of the said documents, schedules, invoices or other papers and makes arrangements, at Borrower's expense, for their return. 16. CHOICE OF LAW. The validity of this Agreement, its construction, interpretation and enforcement, and the rights of the parties hereunder and concerning the Collateral, shall be determined according to the laws of the State of California. The parties agree that all actions or proceedings arising in connection with this Agreement shall be tried and litigated only in the state and federal courts in the Northern District of California or the County of Santa Clara. 17. GENERAL PROVISIONS. 17.1 This Agreement shall be binding and deemed effective when executed by Borrower and accepted and executed by Bank at its headquarters office. 17.2 This Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and assigns of each of the parties; provided, however, that Borrower may not assign this Agreement or any rights hereunder without Bank's prior written consent and any prohibited assignment shall be absolutely void. No consent to an assignment by Bank shall release Borrower or any guarantor from their obligations to Bank. Bank may assign this Agreement and its rights and duties hereunder. Bank reserves the right to sell, assign, transfer, negotiate or grant participations in all or any part of, or any interest in Bank's rights and benefits hereunder. In connection therewith, Bank may disclose all documents and information that Bank now or hereafter may have relating to Borrower or Borrower's business. 17.3 Paragraph headings and paragraph numbers have been set forth herein for convenience only; unless the contrary is compelled by the context, everything contained in each paragraph applies equally to this entire Agreement. Unless the context of this Agreement clearly requires otherwise, references to the plural include the singular, references to the singular include the plural, and the term "including" is not limiting. The words "hereof," "herein," "hereby," "hereunder," and similar terms in this Agreement refer to this Agreement as a whole and not to any particular provision of this Agreement. 17.4 Neither this Agreement nor any uncertainty or ambiguity herein shall be construed or resolved against Bank or Borrower, whether under any rule of construction or otherwise; on the contrary, this Agreement has been reviewed by all parties and shall be construed and interpreted according to the ordinary meaning of the words used so as to fairly accomplish the purposes and intentions of all parties hereto. 17.5 Each provision of this Agreement shall be severable from every other provision of this Agreement for the purpose of determining the legal enforceability of any specific provision. 17.6 This Agreement cannot be changed or terminated orally. This Agreement contains the entire agreement of the parties hereto and supersedes all prior agreements, understandings, representations, warranties and negotiations, if any, related to the subject matter hereof, and none of the parties shall be bound by anything not expressed in writing. 17.7 The parties intend and agree that their respective rights, duties, powers, liabilities, obligations and discretions shall be performed, carried out, discharged and exercised reasonably and in good faith. 17.8 In addition, if this Agreement is secured by a deed of trust or mortgage covering real property, then the trustor or mortgagor shall not mortgage or pledge the mortgaged premises as security for any other indebtedness or obligations. This Agreement, together with all other indebtedness secured by said deed of trust or mortgage, shall become due and payable immediately, without notice, at the option of Bank, (a) if said trustor or mortgagor shall mortgage or pledge the mortgaged premises for any other indebtedness or obligations or shall convey, assign or transfer the mortgaged premises by deed, installment sale contract or other instrument; (b) if the title to the mortgaged premises shall become vested in any other person or party in any manner whatsoever, or (c) if there is any disposition (through one or more transactions) of legal or beneficial title to a controlling interest of said trustor or mortgagor. 15 <PAGE> 17.9 Each undersigned Borrower hereby agrees that it is jointly and severally, directly, and primarily liable to Bank for payment and performance in full of all duties, obligations and liabilities under this Agreement and each other document, instrument and agreement entered into by Borrower with or in favor of Bank in connection herewith, and that such liability is independent of the duties, obligations and liabilities of any other Borrower or any other guarantor of the Indebtedness, as applicable. Each reference herein to Borrower shall mean each and every Borrower party hereto, individually and collectively, jointly and severally. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement to be executed as of the date first hereinabove written.

Bank's Records Re: LIBOR Option Advances. With respect to each LIBOR Option Advance, Bank is hereby authorized to note the date, principal amount, interest rate and LIBOR Period applicable thereto and any payments made thereon on Bank's books and records (either manually or by electronic entry) and/or on any schedule attached to the Agreement, which notations shall be prima facie evidence of the accuracy of the information noted. 6. Selection/Conversion of Interest Rate Options. At the time any Advance is requested under the Agreement and/or Borrower wishes to select the LIBOR Option for all or a portion of the outstanding principal balance of the Agreement, and at the end of each LIBOR Period, Borrower shall give Bank notice specifying (a) the interest rate option selected by Borrower; (b) the principal amount subject thereto; and (c) if the LIBOR Option is selected, the length of the applicable LIBOR Period. Any such notice may be given by telephone so long as, with respect to each LIBOR Option selected by Borrower, (i) Bank receives written confirmation from Borrower not later than three (3) LIBOR Business Days after such telephone notice is given; and (ii) such notice is given to Bank prior to 10:00 a.m., California time, on the first day of the LIBOR Period. For each LIBOR Option requested hereunder, Bank will quote the applicable fixed LIBOR Rate to Borrower at approximately 10:00 a.m., California time, on the first day of the LIBOR Period. If Borrower does not immediately accept the rate quoted by Bank, any subsequent acceptance by Borrower shall be subject to a redetermination of the rate by Bank; provided, however, that if Borrower fails to accept any such quotation given, then the quoted rate shall expire and Bank shall have no obligation to permit a LIBOR Option to be selected on such day. If no specific designation of interest is made at the time any Advance is requested under the Agreement or at the end of any LIBOR Period, Borrower shall be deemed to have selected the Base Rate Option for such Advance or the principal amount to which such LIBOR Period applied. At any time the LIBOR Option is in effect, Borrower may, at the end of the applicable LIBOR Period, convert to the Base Rate Option. At any time the Base Rate Option is in effect, Borrower may convert to the LIBOR OPTION, and shall designate a LIBOR Period. 7. Default Interest Rate. From and after the maturity date of the Agreement, or such earlier date as all principal owing hereunder becomes due and payable by acceleration or otherwise, the outstanding principal balance of the Agreement shall bear interest until paid in full at an increased rate per annum (computed on the basis of a 360-day year, actual days elapsed) equal to three percent (3.00%) above the rate of interest from time to time applicable to the Agreement. 8. Prepayment. In the event that the LIBOR Option is the applicable interest rate for all or any part of the outstanding principal balance of the Agreement, and any payment or prepayment of any such outstanding principal balance of the Agreement shall occur on any day other than the last day of the applicable LIBOR Period (whether voluntarily, by acceleration, required payment, or otherwise), or if Borrower elects the LIBOR Option as the applicable interest rate for all or any part of the outstanding principal balance of the Agreement in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof, and, subsequent to such election, but prior to the commencement of the applicable LIBOR Period, Borrower revokes such election for any reason whatsoever, or if the applicable interest rate in respect of any outstanding principal balance of the Agreement hereunder shall be changed, for any reason whatsoever, from the LIBOR Option to the Base Rate Option prior to the last day of the applicable LIBOR Period, or if Borrower shall fail to make any payment of principal or interest hereunder at any time that the LIBOR Option is the applicable interest rate hereunder in respect of such outstanding principal balance of the Agreement, Borrower shall reimburse Bank, on demand, for any resulting loss, cost or expense incurred by Bank as a result thereof, including, without limitation, any such loss, cost or expense incurred in obtaining, liquidating, employing or redeploying deposits from third parties. Such amount payable by Borrower to Bank may include, without limitation, an amount equal to the excess, if any, of (a) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the amount so prepaid, or not so borrowed, refunded or converted, for the period from the date of such prepayment or of such failure to borrow, refund or convert, through the last day of the relevant LIBOR Period, at the applicable rate of interest for such outstanding principal balance of the Agreement, as provided under this Agreement, over (b) the amount of interest (as reasonably determined by Bank) which would have accrued to Bank on such amount by placing such amount on deposit for a comparable period with leading banks in the interbank LIBOR market. Calculation of any amounts payable to Bank under this paragraph shall be made as though Bank shall have actually funded or committed to fund the relevant outstanding principal balance of the Agreement hereunder through the purchase of an underlying deposit in an amount equal to the amount of such outstanding principal balance of the Agreement and having a maturity comparable to the relevant LIBOR Period; provided, however, that Bank may fund the outstanding principal balance of the Agreement hereunder in any manner it deems fit and the foregoing assumptions shall be utilized only for the purpose of the calculation of amounts payable under this paragraph. Upon the written request of Borrower, Bank shall deliver to Borrower a certificate setting forth the basis for determining such losses, costs and expenses, which certificate shall be conclusively presumed correct, absent manifest error. Any prepayment hereunder shall also be accompanied by the payment of all accrued and unpaid interest on the amount so prepaid. Any outstanding principal balance of the Agreement which is bearing interest at such time at the Base Rate Option may be prepaid without penalty or premium. Partial prepayments hereunder shall be applied to the installments hereunder in the inverse order of their maturities. BY INITIALING BELOW, BORROWER ACKNOWLEDGE(S) AND AGREE(S) THAT: (A) THERE IS NO RIGHT TO PREPAY ANY LIBOR OPTION ADVANCE, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, WITHOUT PAYING THE PREPAYMENT AMOUNT SET FORTH HEREIN ("PREPAYMENT AMOUNT"), EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE REQUIRED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW; (B) BORROWER SHALL BE LIABLE FOR PAYMENT OF THE PREPAYMENT AMOUNT IF BANK EXERCISES ITS RIGHT TO ACCELERATE PAYMENT OF ANY LIBOR OPTION ADVANCE AS PART OR ALL OF THE OBLIGATIONS OWING UNDER THE AGREEMENT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ACCELERATION UNDER A DUE-ON-SALE PROVISION; (C) BORROWER WAIVES ANY RIGHTS UNDER SECTION 2954.10 OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE OR ANY SUCCESSOR STATUTE; AND (D) BANK HAS MADE EACH LIBOR OPTION ADVANCE PURSUANT TO THE AGREEMENT IN RELIANCE ON THESE AGREEMENTS. -------------------- BORROWER'S INITIALS 9. Hold Harmless and Indemnification. Borrower agrees to indemnify Bank and to hold Bank harmless from, and to reimburse Bank on demand for, all losses and expenses which Bank sustains or incurs as a result of (i) any payment of a LIBOR Option Advance prior to the last day of the applicable LIBOR Period for any reason, including, without limitation, termination of the Agreement, whether pursuant to this Addendum or the occurrence of an Event of Default; (ii) any termination of a LIBOR Period prior to the date it would otherwise end in accordance with this Addendum; or (iii) any failure by Borrower, for any reason, to borrow any portion of a LIBOR Option Advance. 18 <PAGE> 10. Funding Losses. The indemnification and hold harmless provisions set forth in this Addendum shall include, without limitation, all losses and expenses arising from interest and fees that Bank pays to lenders of funds it obtains in order to fund the loans to Borrower on the basis of the LIBOR Option(s) and all losses incurred in liquidating or re-deploying deposits from which such funds were obtained and loss of profit for the period after termination. A written statement by Bank to Borrower of such losses and expenses shall be conclusive and binding, absent manifest error, for all purposes. This obligation shall survive the termination of this Addendum and the payment of the Agreement. 11. Regulatory Developments Or Other Circumstances Relating To Illegality or Impracticality of LIBOR. If any Regulatory Development or other circumstances relating to the interbank Euro-dollar markets shall, at any time, in Bank's reasonable determination , make it unlawful or impractical for Bank to fund or maintain, during any LIBOR Period, to determine or charge interest rates based upon LIBOR, Bank shall give notice of such circumstances to Borrower and: (i) In the case of a LIBOR Period in progress, Borrower shall, if requested by Bank, promptly pay any interest which had accrued prior to such request and the date of such request shall be deemed to be the last day of the term of the LIBOR Period; and (ii) No LIBOR Period may be designated thereafter until Bank determines that such would be practical. 12. Additional Costs. Borrower shall pay to Bank from time to time, upon Bank's request, such amounts as Bank determines are needed to compensate Bank for any costs it incurred which are attributable to Bank having made or maintained a LIBOR Option Advance or to Bank's obligation to make a LIBOR Option Advance, or any reduction in any amount receivable by Bank hereunder with respect to any LIBOR Option or such obligation (such increases in costs and reductions in amounts receivable being herein called "Additional Costs"), resulting from any Regulatory Developments, which (i) change the basis of taxation of any amounts payable to Bank hereunder with respect to taxation of any amounts payable to Bank hereunder with respect to any LIBOR Option Advance (other than taxes imposed on the overall net income of Bank for any LIBOR Option Advance by the jurisdiction where Bank is headquartered or the jurisdiction where Bank extends the LIBOR Option Advance; (ii) impose or modify any reserve, special deposit, or similar requirements relating to any extensions of credit or other assets of, or any deposits with or other liabilities of, Bank (including any LIBOR Option Advance or any deposits referred to in the definition of LIBOR); or (iii) impose any other condition affecting this Addendum (or any of such extension of credit or liabilities). Bank shall notify Borrower of any event occurring after the date hereof which entitles Bank to compensation pursuant to this paragraph as promptly as practicable after it obtains knowledge thereof and determines to request such compensation. Determinations by Bank for purposes of this paragraph, shall be conclusive, provided that such determinations are made on a reasonable basis. 13. Legal Effect. Except as specifically modified hereby, all of the terms and conditions of the Agreement remain in full force and effect. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have agreed to the foregoing as of the date first set forth above. HANSEN BEVERAGE COMPANY COMERICA BANK Borrower By: /s/Rodney C.
