(Hereinafter referred to as "Bank")

To induce Bank to make a $40,000,000.00 revolving loan ("Loan"), and in consideration of loans, advances, credit, or other financial accommodations made, extended or renewed to or for the benefit of Borrower in connection with said Loan, which are and will be to the direct interest and advantage of the Guarantor, Guarantor hereby absolutely, irrevocably and unconditionally guarantees to Bank and its successors, assigns and affiliates the timely payment and performance of all liabilities and obligations of Borrower to Bank under that certain Revolving Promissory Note of even date herewith in the amount of $40,000,000.00 (the "Note"), the Loan Documents as defined below, and all obligations with respect to any swap agreements (as defined in 11 U.S. Code 101), and all extensions, modifications and renewals thereof, (collectively, the "Guaranteed Obligations"). There shall be no limitation on the amount of the Guaranteed Obligations of Guarantor.

Guarantor hereby further unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees to Bank and its successors, endorsees and assigns that: (a) the Property shall be and remain free and clear of all liens from any and

1


 

all persons, firms, corporations or other entities furnishing materials, labor or services in the construction, equipment or completion of the Improvements, if any, (as same is defined in the Revolving Loan Agreement executed by Borrower simultaneously herewith ("Loan Agreement")); and (b) Borrower shall fully and punctually comply with the all the terms, covenants and conditions on its part to be complied with under the Loan Documents.

In the event that the Improvements on any Land Under Development (as same is defined in the Loan Agreement) (the funding of which was requested by Borrower under the Loan) are not completed and paid for or are not free of all liens, claims and demands upon the completion thereof, as guaranteed herein, (a) Guarantor agrees to fully indemnify Bank and save Bank harmless from all costs and damages that Bank may suffer by reason thereof; (b) in the event that Bank shall (i) cause any construction or equipment of the Improvements to be done, (ii) pay any costs in connection with the construction or equipment of the Improvements, if any, or (iii) cause any such lien, claim or demand to be released or paid, then Guarantor agrees to reimburse Bank for all sums paid and all costs and expenses incurred by it in connection therewith; and (c) Guarantor agrees, if requested by Bank, to complete or cause the completion of the construction and equipment of the Improvements, if any, in accordance with the Loan Agreement.

Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that it will be impossible to measure and accurately determine the damages to Bank resulting from a breach of the covenants in the Loan Documents, that such a breach will cause irreparable injury to Bank and that Bank has no adequate remedy at law in respect of such breach and, as a consequence, agrees that such covenant shall be specifically enforceable against Guarantor and hereby waives and agrees not to assert any defense based on denial of any of the foregoing in an action for specific performance of such covenant.

Guarantor consents that the terms, covenants, and provisions contained in any of the Loan Documents may be altered, extended, released, modified or cancelled, all without any further consent of Guarantor, and Guarantor agrees that this Guaranty shall in no way be affected, diminished or released by any such alteration, extension, modification, release or cancellation.

In addition to the above, the Guaranteed Obligations shall further include the full and prompt payment and performance when due of all present and future liability, obligations and indemnifications whatsoever, of Borrower to Bank under and pursuant to the sections of the Loan Documents relating to "Hazardous Material", with such interest as may accrue thereon and such other charges as may be due in connection therewith, whether such obligations now exist or arise hereafter. Guarantor agrees that, if Borrower does not pay said liability, obligations and indemnifications relating to Hazardous Material, for any reason, Guarantor shall immediately make such payments. Guarantor's liability, obligations and indemnifications relating to Hazardous Material shall not be discharged or satisfied by repayment of the obligations evidenced by the Loan Documents, or by foreclosure of the Security Instrument, and shall continue in effect after any transfer of the real estate secured by the Security Instrument, including, without limitation, transfers pursuant to foreclosure (or in lieu of) proceedings and subsequent transfers.

Guarantor further covenants and agrees:

GUARANTOR's LIABILITY. This Guaranty is a continuing and unconditional guaranty of payment and performance and not of collection. The parties to this Guaranty are jointly and severally obligated hereunder. This Guaranty does not impose any obligation on Bank to extend or continue to extend credit or otherwise deal with Borrower at any subsequent time. This Guaranty shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time any payment of the Guaranteed Obligations is rescinded, avoided or for any other reason must be returned by Bank, and the returned payment shall remain payable as part of the Guaranteed Obligations, all as though such payment had not been made. Except to the extent the provisions of this Guaranty give Bank additional rights, this Guaranty shall not be deemed to supersede or replace any other guaranties given to Bank by Guarantor; and the obligations guaranteed hereby shall be in addition to any other obligations guaranteed by Guarantor pursuant to any other agreement of guaranty given to Bank and other guaranties of the Guaranteed Obligations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the future Bank will consider a reduction in the amount of the guarantee

TERMINATION OF GUARANTY. Guarantor may terminate this Guaranty only by written notice, delivered personally to or received by certified or registered United States Mail by an authorized officer of Bank at the address for notices provided herein. Such termination shall be effective with respect to Guaranteed Obligations arising more than 15 days after the date such written notice is received by said Bank officer. Guarantor may not terminate this Guaranty as to Guaranteed Obligations (including any subsequent extensions, modifications or compromises of the Guaranteed Obligations) then existing, or to Guaranteed Obligations arising subsequent to receipt by Bank of said notice if such Guaranteed Obligations are a result of Bank's obligation to make advances pursuant to a commitment entered into prior to expiration of the 15 day notice period, or are a result of advances which are necessary for Bank to protect its collateral or otherwise preserve its interests. Termination of this Guaranty by any single Guarantor will not affect the existing and continuing obligations of any other Guarantor hereunder.

CONSENT TO MODIFICATIONS. Guarantor consents and agrees that Bank may from time to time, in its sole discretion, without affecting, impairing, lessening or releasing the obligations of Guarantor hereunder: (a) extend or modify the time, manner, place or terms of payment or performance and/or otherwise change or modify the credit terms of the Guaranteed Obligations; (b) increase, renew, or enter into a novation of the Guaranteed Obligations; (c) waive or consent to the departure from terms of the Guaranteed Obligations; (d) permit any change in the business or other dealings and relations of Borrower or any other guarantor with Bank; (e) proceed against, exchange, release, realize upon, or otherwise deal with in any manner any collateral that is or may be held by Bank in connection with the Guaranteed Obligations or any liabilities or obligations of Guarantor; and (f) proceed against, settle, release, or compromise with Borrower, any insurance carrier, or any other person or entity liable as to any part of the Guaranteed Obligations, and/or subordinate the payment of any part of the Guaranteed Obligations to the payment of any other obligations, which may at any time be due or owing to Bank; all in such manner and upon such terms as Bank may deem appropriate, and without notice to or further consent from Guarantor. No invalidity, irregularity, discharge or unenforceability of, or action or omission by Bank relating to any part of the Guaranteed Obligations or any security therefor shall affect or impair this Guaranty.

WAIVERS AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. Guarantor waives and releases the following rights, demands, and defenses Guarantor may have with respect to Bank and collection of the Guaranteed Obligations: (a) promptness and diligence in collection of any of the Guaranteed Obligations from Borrower or any other person liable thereon, and in foreclosure of any security interest and sale of any property serving as collateral for the Guaranteed Obligations; (b) subject to Borrower receiving any applicable notice to cure as required in the Loan Documents, if any, any law or statute that requires that Bank make demand upon, assert claims against, or collect from Borrower or other persons or entities, foreclose any security interest, sell collateral, exhaust any remedies, or take any other action against Borrower or other persons or entities prior to making demand upon, collecting from or taking action against Guarantor with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations, including any such rights Guarantor might otherwise have had under Va. Code 49-25 and 49-26, et seq., N.C.G.S. 26-7, et seq., Tenn. Code Ann. 47-12-101, O.C.G.A. 10-7-24 and any successor statute and any other applicable law; (c) any law or statute that requires that Borrower or any other person be joined in, notified of or made part of any action against Guarantor; (d) that Bank preserve, insure or perfect any security interest in collateral or sell or dispose of collateral in a particular manner or at a particular time, provided that Bank's obligation to dispose of Collateral in a commercially reasonable manner is not waived hereby; (e) notice of extensions, modifications, renewals, or novations of the Guaranteed Obligations, of any new transactions or other relationships between Bank, Borrower and/or any guarantor, and of changes in the financial condition of, ownership of, or business structure of Borrower or any other guarantor; (f) except as otherwise provided in the Loan Documents, presentment, protest, notice of dishonor, notice of default, demand for payment, notice of intention to accelerate maturity, notice of acceleration of maturity, notice of sale, and all other notices of any kind whatsoever to which Guarantor may be entitled; (g) the right to assert against Bank any defense (legal or equitable), set-off, counterclaim, or claim that Guarantor may have at any time against Borrower or any other party liable to Bank; (h) all defenses relating to invalidity, insufficiency, unenforceability, enforcement, release or impairment of Bank's lien on any collateral, of the Loan

Guarantor acknowledges and represents that Guarantor has relied upon Guarantor's own due diligence in making an independent appraisal of Borrower, Borrower's business affairs and financial condition, and any collateral; Guarantor will continue to be responsible for making an independent appraisal of such matters; and Guarantor has not relied upon Bank for information regarding Borrower or any collateral.

Regardless of any other provision of this Guaranty or other Loan Documents, if for any reason the effective interest on any of the Guaranteed Obligations should exceed the maximum lawful interest, the effective interest shall be deemed reduced to and shall be such maximum lawful interest, and any sums of interest which have been collected in excess of such maximum lawful interest shall be applied as a credit against the unpaid principal balance of the Guaranteed Obligations. Monies received from any source by Bank for application toward payment of the Guaranteed Obligations may be applied to such Guaranteed Obligations in any manner or order deemed appropriate by Bank.
