(c) Enforceability Against the Borrower. Each of the Loan Documents constitutes the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Borrower enforceable in accordance with their terms (subject, as to enforceability, to limitations resulting from bankruptcy, insolvency and other similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally).
(d) Financial Condition. The financial statements of the Borrower furnished to the Lender in connection with this Agreement are complete and correct in all material respects and fairly present the financial condition of the Borrower and at the dates of such statements.

(e) Litigation. There is no action, suit or proceeding pending or, to the knowledge of the Borrower, threatened against or affecting the Borrower which, if adversely determined, would have a material adverse effect on the condition (financial or otherwise), business, properties or assets of the Borrower or which would question the validity of the Loan Documents, or impair the ability of the Borrower to perform its obligations under the Loan Documents.
(f) Licenses. The Borrower possesses adequate licenses, permits, franchises, patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade names, or rights thereto, to conduct its business substantially as now conducted and as presently proposed to be conducted except where the failure to do so cannot reasonably be determined to materially adversely affect the Borrower's financial condition, business, properties or assets.
(g) Default. The Borrower is not in default of a material provision under any agreement, instrument, decree or order to which it is a party or by which it or its property is bound or affected.

(m) Subsidiaries. Except as set forth on Schedule 7(m) attached hereto, the Borrower has no Subsidiaries.
(n) Rights to Payment. Each right to payment and each instrument, document, chattel paper and other agreement constituting or evidencing Collateral is (or, in the case of all future Collateral, will be when arising or issued) the valid, genuine and legally enforceable obligation, subject to no defense, setoff or counterclaim, of the account debtor or other obligor named therein or in the Borrower's records pertaining thereto as being obligated to pay such obligation.
