Risk of Loss; Damage to Equipment, (a) Lessee shall bear the entire risk of loss (including without limitation, theft, destruction, disappearance of or damage to Equipment from any cause whatsoever), whether or not insured against, during the Term of each Lease and until Equipment is returned to Lessor in accordance with Section 11 hereof. No such loss shall relieve Lessee of the obligation to pay Rent or of any other obligation under the related Lease. (b) If any Equipment is lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair, or confiscated, seized or the use and/or title thereof requisitioned to someone other than Lessee (any such event being a Total Loss), Lessee shall immediately notify Lessor of such event.

If Lessor elects to allow replacement of Equipment as set forth in subsection (i) above, Lessee shall cause the Supplier of such replacement equipment to deliver to Lessor a bill of sale for such equipment free and clear of all liens and encumbrances, and such replacement equipment shall become Equipment subject to the applicable Lease.

On each anniversary of the Rent Commencement Date during the term hereof, Lessee shall deliver to Lessor certificates or other proof of insurance satisfactory to Lessor evidencing the coverage required by this section. 15. Taxes. Lessee shall pay when due and shall indemnify and hold harmless Lessor (on an after-tax basis) from and against any and all taxes, fees, withholdings, levies, imposts, duties, assessments and charges of every kind and nature whatsoever (including any related penalties and interest) imposed upon or against Lessor, any Lessor Assignee, Lessee or any Equipment by any governmental authority in connection with, arising out of or otherwise related to Equipment, the Lease Documents or the Rent and receipts or earnings arising therefrom and excepting only all Federal, state and local taxes on or measured by Lessors net income. Whenever each Lease expires, terminates or is canceled as to any Equipment, Lessee, upon written request by Lessor, shall advance to Lessor the amount estimated by Lessor to be the taxes on said Equipment that are not yet payable, but for which Lessee is responsible. At Lessees request, Lessor shall provide Lessee with Lessors method of computation of any such estimated taxes. 16. Lessors Right to Perform for Lessee. If Lessee fails to perform any of its obligations contained herein, Lessor may (but shall not be obligated to) itself perform such obligations, and the amount of the reasonable costs and expenses of Lessor incurred in connection with such performance, together with interest on such amount at the lesser of eighteen percent per annum or the maximum permitted by law, shall be payable by Lessee to Lessor upon demand. No such performance by Lessor shall be deemed a waiver of any rights or remedies of Lessor or be deemed to cure the default of Lessee hereunder. 17. Personal Property; Liens. Lessee represents and warrants that the Equipment is, and shall at all times remain, fully removable personal property notwithstanding any affixation or attachment to real property or improvements. Lessee shall at all times keep Equipment free and clear from all liens and encumbrances of any kind or nature other than those created by, through or under Lessor. If, in violation of the foregoing covenant, any prohibited lien or encumbrance shall attach to Equipment, Lessee shall (a) give Lessor immediate written notice thereof and (b) promptly, at Lessees sole cost and expense, take such action as may be necessary to discharge such lien. 18.

A Default with respect to any Lease shall, at Lessors option, constitute a Default for all Leases and any other agreements between Lessor and Lessee. (b) Upon the occurrence of a Default, Lessor may do one or more of the following as Lessor in its sole discretion shall elect: (i) proceed by appropriate court action to enforce performance by Lessee of the related Lease or to recover damages, including incidental and consequential damages, for the breach thereof; (ii) cause Lessee, at its expense, promptly to assemble Equipment and return the same to Lessor at such place as Lessor may designate in writing; (iii) by notice in writing to Lessee, cancel or terminate the related Lease, without prejudice to any other remedies hereunder; (iv) enter upon the premises of Lessee or other premises where any Equipment may be located and, without notice to Lessee and with or without legal process, take possession of and remove all or any such Equipment without liability to Lessee by reason of such entry or taking possession, and without such action constituting a cancellation or termination of the Lease unless Lessor notifies Lessee in writing to such effect; (v) by written notice to Lessee specifying a payment date (the Remedy Date), demand that Lessee pay to Lessor, and Lessee shall pay to Lessor, on the Remedy Date, as liquidated damages for loss of a bargain and not as a penalty, a sum equal to (A) any unpaid Rent due prior to the Remedy Date (together with interest on such amount at the lesser of eighteen percent per annum or the maximum permitted by law from the Remedy Date to the date of actual payment), plus (B) the Stipulated Loss Value; (vi) sell Equipment at public or private sale or hold, keep idle or lease to others any Equipment; and (vii) exercise any other right or remedy available to Lessor under applicable law.

Lessors recovery hereunder shall in no event exceed the maximum recovery permitted by law. (c) If a Default occurs, Lessee hereby agrees that ten days prior notice to Lessee of any public sale or of the time after which a private sale may be negotiated shall be conclusively deemed reasonable notice. None of Lessors rights or remedies hereunder are intended to be exclusive, but each shall be cumulative and in addition to any other right or remedy referred to hereunder or otherwise available to Lessor at law or in equity, and no express or implied waiver by Lessor of any Default shall constitute a waiver of any other Default or a waiver of any of Lessors rights. (d) With respect to any exercise by Lessor of its right to recover and/or dispose of any Equipment or any other collateral securing Lessees obligations under any Lease, Lessee acknowledges and agrees that Lessor may dispose of Equipment on an AS-IS, WHERE-IS basis, in compliance with applicable law and with such preparation (if any) as Lessor determines to be commercially reasonable.
