ARTICLE 5. Power of Attorney.
Each Grantor hereby irrevocably appoints Secured Party or any other Person whom Secured Party may designate as the Grantor attorney-in-fact, with full power and authority in place and stead of such Grantor and in the name of such Grantor or in its own name to: (a) endorse such Grantor's name on any checks, notes, acceptances, money orders, drafts or other forms of payment or security that may come into Secured Party's possession; (b) sign such Grantor's name on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any Receivables, drafts against customers, schedules and assignments of Receivables, notices of assignment, financing statements and other public records, verifications of account and notices to or from Customers; (c) verify the validity, amount or any other matter relating to any Receivable by mail, telephone, telegraph or otherwise with Customers; (d) execute customs declarations and such other documents as may be required to clear Inventory through United States Customs; (e) do all things necessary to carry out this Agreement and all other Transaction Documents; (f) continue any insurance existing pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and pay all or any part of the premium therefor and the cost thereof; and (g) notify the post office authorities to change the address for delivery of such Grantor's mail to an address designated by Secured Party, and to receive, open and dispose of all mail addressed to such Grantor. Each Grantor hereby ratifies and approves all acts of the attorney. The powers conferred on Secured Party hereunder are solely to protect its interests in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon it to exercise any such powers. Neither Secured Party nor the attorney will be liable for any acts or omissions or for any error of judgment or mistake of fact or law. This power, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable so long as any Receivable which is assigned to Secured Party or in which Secured Party has a Security Interest remains unpaid and until the Obligations have been fully satisfied. Secured Party hereby agrees that it shall not exercise any of the rights conferred on it under this Article 5 until the occurrence and continuation of an Event of Default.
ARTICLE 6. Events of Default, Rights and Remedies.
Events of Default. The occurrence of any one or more of the following events shall constitute an "Event of Default":
the occurrence of an "Event of Default" under the Note; or
the Security Interest for any reason ceases to be or is not a valid and perfected third priority Lien, subject to the exceptions set forth in Section 3.1.
Rights and Remedies. Upon the occurrence of any Event of Default, Secured Party shall have the right to demand repayment in full of all Obligations, whether or not otherwise due (in such case Secured Party may deposit any and all such amounts realized in a cash collateral deposit account to be maintained as security
for the Obligations). Until all Obligations have been fully satisfied, Secured Party shall retain its Security Interest in all Collateral. During an event of Default, Secured Party shall have, in addition to all other rights provided herein, the rights and remedies of a Secured Party under the UCC, and under other applicable law, all other legal and equitable rights to which Secured Party may be entitled, including without limitation, the right to take immediate possession of the Collateral, to require the Grantor to assemble the Collateral, at the Grantor expense, and to make it available to Secured Party at a place designated by Secured Party which is reasonably convenient to both parties and to enter any of the Premises of the Grantor or wherever the Collateral shall be located, with or without force or process of law, and to keep and store the same at any such Premises until sold (and in the case of any of the Premises or any other property of the Grantor, the Grantor agrees not to charge Secured Party for storage thereof). Further, Secured Party may, at any time or times after the occurrence of an Event of Default, sell and deliver all Collateral held by or for Secured Party in one or more parcels at public or private sale for cash, upon credit or otherwise, at such prices and upon such terms as Secured Party, in Secured Party's sole discretion, deems advisable or Secured Party may otherwise recover upon the Collateral in any commercially reasonable manner as Secured Party, in its sole discretion, deems advisable. Except as to that part of the Collateral which is perishable or threatens to decline speedily in nature or is of a type customarily sold on a recognized market, the requirement of reasonable notice shall be met if such notice is mailed postage prepaid to the Grantor at the Grantor address as shown in Secured Party's records, at least ten (10) days before the time of the event of which notice is being given. Secured Party may be the purchaser at any sale, if it is public. Until Secured Party is able to effect a sale, lease, or other disposition of Collateral, Secured Party shall have the right to use or operate Collateral, or any part thereof, to the extent that it deems appropriate for the purpose of preserving Collateral or its value or for any other purpose deemed appropriate by Secured Party. Secured Party shall have no obligation to the Grantor to maintain or preserve the rights of the Grantor as against third parties with respect to Collateral while Collateral is in the possession of Secured Party. Secured Party may, if it so elects, seek the appointment of a receiver or keeper to take possession of Collateral and to enforce any of Secured Party's remedies with respect to such appointment without prior notice or hearing. In connection with the exercise of the foregoing remedies, Secured Party is granted permission to use: (a) all of the Grantor Intellectual Property which are used in connection with Inventory for the purpose of disposing of such Inventory; and (b) any Equipment for the purpose of completing the manufacture of unfinished goods. The proceeds of sale shall be applied first to all costs and expenses of sale, including attorneys' fees, and second to the payment (in whatever order Secured Party elects) of all Obligations. Secured Party will return any excess to the Grantor and the Grantor shall remain liable to Secured Party for any deficiency.
Grant of License to Use Intellectual Property. For the purpose of enabling Secured Party to exercise the rights and remedies under this ARTICLE 6. at such time as Secured Party shall be lawfully entitled to exercise such rights and remedies, the Grantor hereby grants to Secured Party an irrevocable, non-exclusive license (exercisable without payment of royalty or other compensation to the Grantor) to use, license or sublicense any of the Collateral consisting of Intellectual Property now owned or hereafter acquired by the Grantor, and wherever the same may be located, and including in such license reasonable access to all media in which any of the licensed items may be recorded or stored and to all computer software and programs used for the compilation or printout thereof. The use of such license by Secured Party shall be exercised, at the option of Secured Party, from and after the occurrence of an Event of Default; provided that any license, sublicense or other transaction entered into by Secured Party in accordance herewith shall be binding upon the Grantor notwithstanding any subsequent cure of an Event of Default
ARTICLE 7. Additional Collateral; Additional Grantor.
Subject to the terms of this Article 7, with respect to any property acquired after the Closing Date by any of the Grantor that is intended to be subject to the Lien created by this Agreement but is not so subject, promptly (and in any event within 30 days after the acquisition thereof), at the written request of Secured Party, (i) execute and deliver to Secured Party such amendments or supplements to the relevant security documents or such other documents as Secured Party shall deem necessary or advisable to grant to Secured Party a Lien on such property subject to no Liens other than Permitted Liens, and (ii) promptly after the written request of the Secured Party take all actions necessary to cause such Lien to be duly perfected to the extent required by such security document in accordance with all applicable requirements of law, including the filing of financing statements in such jurisdictions as may be reasonably requested by Secured Party. The Grantor shall otherwise take such actions and execute and/or deliver to Secured Party such documents as Secured Party shall require to confirm the validity, perfection and priority of the Lien on such after-acquired properties.
With respect to any Person that is or becomes a Subsidiary after the Closing Date, promptly (and in any event within 30 days after such Person becomes a Subsidiary) (i) deliver to Secured Party the certificates, if any, representing all of the equity interests of such Subsidiary, together with undated stock powers or other appropriate instruments of transfer executed and delivered in blank by a duly authorized officer of the holder(s) of such equity interests, and all intercompany notes owing from such Subsidiary to the Grantor together with instruments of transfer executed and delivered in blank by a duly authorized officer of such Grantor and (ii) cause such new Subsidiary (A) to execute a guaranty in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Secured Party to become a Subsidiary Guarantor and an Assumption Agreement to this Agreement, substantially in the form annexed thereto or, in the case of a foreign subsidiary, execute a security agreement compatible with the laws of such foreign subsidiary's jurisdiction in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Secured Party, and (B) to take all actions necessary or advisable or as otherwise reasonably requested by Secured Party to cause the Liens to be duly perfected to the extent required by such agreement in accordance with all applicable requirements of law, including the filing of financing statements in such jurisdictions as may be reasonably requested by Secured Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (1) the obligations under this Section 7.2 shall not apply to Excluded Collateral and (2) no foreign Subsidiary shall be required to take the actions specified in clause (ii) of this Section 7.2, if, in the case of clause (2), doing so would constitute an investment of earnings in United States property under Section 956 (or a successor provision) of the Code, which investment would or could reasonably be expected to trigger an increase in the net income of a United States shareholder of such Subsidiary pursuant to Section 951 (or a successor provision) of the Code, as reasonably determined by the Borrower; provided that this exception shall not apply to (A) voting stock of any Subsidiary which is a first-tier controlled foreign corporation (as defined in Section 957(a) of the Code) representing 66% of the total voting power of all outstanding voting stock of such Subsidiary and (B) 100% of the equity interests not constituting voting stock of any such Subsidiary, except that any such equity interests constituting "stock entitled to vote" within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.956-2(c)(2) shall be treated as voting stock for purposes of this Section 7.2.
Promptly grant to Secured Party, within 30 days of the acquisition thereof, a security interest in and mortgage on each real property (the "Mortgage"), other than Excluded Collateral, owned in fee by the Grantor as is acquired by such Grantor after the Closing Date and that, together with any improvements thereon, as additional security for the Obligations (unless the subject property is already mortgaged to a third party to the extent permitted by Section 3.1). Such Mortgages shall be granted pursuant to documentation reasonably satisfactory in form and substance to Secured Party and shall constitute valid and enforceable perfected Liens subject only to Permitted Liens or other Liens acceptable to Secured Party. The Mortgages or instruments related thereto shall be duly recorded or filed in such manner and in such places as are required by law to establish, perfect, preserve and protect the Liens in favor of Secured Party and all taxes, fees and other charges payable in connection therewith shall be paid in full by the Grantor. The Grantor shall otherwise take such actions and execute and/or deliver to Secured Party such documents as Secured Party shall require to confirm, if any, the validity, perfection and priority of the Lien of any existing mortgage or new mortgage against such after-acquired real property (including a Title Policy, a survey and local counsel opinion (in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Secured Party in respect of such Mortgage).
ARTICLE 8. Miscellaneous.
