(b) The obligation to repay the Loan shall be evidenced by one or more Note(s) payable to the order of the Bank and maturing upon the earlier to occur of an Event of Default or the expiration of the Loan Period. Amounts due under the Note(s) and otherwise under this Agreement and under the Loan Documents shall be reflected in the Loan Account. (c) At any time, Bank may require that Borrower submit (and the Bank receive) a Borrower's Report in such form as may be reasonably requested by Bank from time to time with respect to the status of the Loan within ten (10) business days of Bank providing written notice to Borrower. Each such Borrower's Report shall be signed by an officer or employee of Borrower authorized by Borrower to execute such reports, whose name(s) shall be 5 <PAGE> included in a certificate furnished to the Bank.

(e) The principal amount of the Loan outstanding from time to time hereunder shall bear interest at the Base Rate. Interest shall be paid to Bank on the amount of the Loan outstanding and shall be payable monthly in arrears on the first day of each month beginning with October 1, 2000 and continuing on the same day of each month thereafter through and until such time as there remains no unpaid principal balance on the amounts advanced to the Borrower. The applicable interest rate on the Loan shall change as and when the Base Rate changes from time to time. Interest shall be calculated based on a 360 day year (i.e., computed on the actual number of days elapsed over a year of 360 days unless reference to a 365 or a 366-day year is necessary in order not to exceed the highest rate permitted by Applicable Law). From and after the occurrence of an Event of Default until such Event of Default is cured, the principal amount of the Loan outstanding from time to time shall, subject to the provisions of the following subsection, bear interest at the Default Rate. Additionally, for each payment due pursuant to this Agreement which is more than ten (10) calendar days overdue, Bank may charge a fee (the "Late Charge") equal to five percent (5%) of each overdue payment to reimburse Bank for the extra expense involved in handling delinquent payments. (f) In addition to monthly interest payments, principal shall be due and payable in monthly installments on the first day of each month beginning with October 1, 2000 and continuing on the same day of each month thereafter through and until such time as there remains no unpaid principal balance or until the expiration of the Loan Period.

On the date which is five (5) years after the Closing Date, Borrower will make a balloon payment in an amount equal to the then outstanding principal balance of the Loan, which balance is anticipated to be $4,900,000.00 more or less. Additionally, for each scheduled payment of principal due 6 <PAGE> pursuant to this Agreement which is more than ten (10) calendar days overdue, Bank may charge a fee (the "Late Charge") equal to five percent (5%) of each overdue payment to reimburse Bank for the extra expense involved in handling delinquent payments. (g) Borrower acknowledges and agrees that the provisions herein and in the Note(s) relating to the Default Rate and the Late Charge represent a fair and reasonable estimate by Borrower and Bank of a fair average compensation for the loss that may be sustained by Bank due to the failure of Borrower to make timely payments with respect to the Obligations and for the cost and expenses that may be incurred by Bank by reason of the occurrence of an Event of Default, the parties recognizing that the damages caused by such extra administrative expenses and loss of the use of funds is impracticable or extremely difficult to ascertain or estimate. Interest at the Default Rate shall be paid without prejudice to the rights of Bank to collect any other amounts provided to be paid hereunder. 2.2 Loan Fee.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Borrower's obligation to indemnify Bank shall include indemnity from any and all claims, demands, judgments, damages, actions, causes of action, injuries, orders, penalties, costs and expenses arising out of or in connection with the activities of the Borrower, its predecessors in interest, third parties who have trespassed on Borrower's property, or parties in a contractual relationship with Borrower, whether or not occasioned wholly or in part by any condition, accident or event caused by an act or omission of the Indemnitees, which: (a) arise out of the actual, alleged or threatened discharge, dispersal, release, storage, treatment, generation, disposal, or escape of radioactive materials, radioactivity, pollutants or other toxic or hazardous substances, including any solid, liquid, gaseous, or thermal irritant or contaminant, including smoke, vapor, soot, fumes, acids, alkalis, chemicals, and waste (including materials to be recycled, reconditioned or reclaimed); or (b) actually or allegedly arise out of the use, specification, or inclusion of any product, material, or process containing chemicals or radioactive material, the failure to detect the existence or proportion of chemicals or radioactive material in the soil, air, surface water or groundwater, or the performance or failure to perform the abatement of any pollution source or the replacement or removal of any soil, water, surface water, or groundwater containing chemicals or radioactive material; or (c) arises out of or relates to breach by Borrower of any of the provisions of Section 5.15 hereof relating to Environmental Regulations. In addition, Borrower will indemnify and hold Bank harmless from and against any liability, claim, cost or expense incurred by Bank or imposed against Bank for any stamp tax, 26 <PAGE> intangible tax, or other tax, fee or charge imposed by any governmental entity arising out of or relating to the Note(s) or this Agreement or the transactions anticipated herein. ARTICLE 11 COSTS AND EXPENSES; MISCELLANEOUS 11.1 Costs of Preparation; Brokers Fees. Borrower shall bear all expenses of the Bank in connection with the Loans and with the investigation, review and approval of this transaction, the preparation of the Agreement and the Loan Documents, and the issuance and delivery of the Note(s) to Bank and also in connection with any amendment or modification thereto, and the administration thereof, including, without limitation, (i) all reasonable legal fees, expenses and disbursements and other actual third-party expense reimbursements incurred or sustained by Bank in connection with this transaction, (ii) all reasonable travel, appraisal, audit, search and filing fees incurred or sustained by Bank in connection with this transaction (excluding administration costs of the Loans); (iii) all recording and filing fees, intangibles taxes, documentary and revenue stamps, other taxes or other expenses and charges payable in connection with this Agreement, the Note(s) or any Loan Document and (iv) all reasonable costs and expenses (including fees and expenses of outside consultants) related to the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby and/or periodic audits and appraisals performed by Bank.

If, at any time or times hereafter, whether before or after the occurrence of an Event of Default, the Bank employs counsel to advise or provide other representation with respect to this Agreement or any Loan Document, or to collect the balance of the Loans, or to take any action in or with respect to any suit or proceeding relating to this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents, or to protect, collect, or liquidate the Collateral or to attempt to enforce any security interest or Lien granted to the Bank by Borrower; then in any such events, all of the reasonable attorneys' fees arising from such services, and any expenses, costs and charges relating thereto to the extent Bank is the prevailing party, shall constitute additional obligations of Borrower payable on demand of the Bank. 11.3 Legal Counsel. Borrower acknowledges and agrees that legal counsel to Bank does not represent Borrower as Borrower's attorney, that Borrower has retained (or has had an opportunity to retain) counsel of its own choice and has not and will not rely upon any advice from Bank's counsel. In no event shall Borrower's reimbursement of expenses pursuant to this Agreement (even if effected by payment directly by Borrower to Bank's counsel) be deemed to establish any attorney-client relationship between Borrower and Bank's counsel. 11.4 No Waiver. No waiver of any Event of Default hereunder, and no waiver of any default or Event of Default under any other Loan Document shall extend to or shall affect any subsequent or other then existing default or shall impair any rights, remedies or powers of Bank. No delay or omission of Bank or any subsequent holder of the Note(s) to exercise any right, remedy, power or privilege hereunder after the occurrence of such default or Event of Default shall be construed as a waiver of any such default, or acquiescence therein. 27 <PAGE> 11.5 Headings. Except for the definitions set forth in Section 1, the headings of the articles, sections, paragraphs and subdivisions of this Agreement are for convenience of reference only, are not to be considered a part hereof, and shall not limit or otherwise affect any of the terms hereof. 11.6 Marshalling of Assets; Payments Set Aside. Bank shall be under no obligation to marshall any assets or securities in favor of Borrower or any guarantor or any other Person or against or in payment of any or all of the Obligations. To the extent that any sum credited against the Obligations is subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party under any bankruptcy law, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause, then to the extent of such recovery, the Obligations or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied, and all Liens, rights and remedies therefor, shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not been made or such enforcement or setoff had not occurred. 11.7 Survival of Covenants. All covenants, agreements, representations and warranties made herein and in certificates or reports delivered pursuant hereto shall be deemed to have been material and relied on by Bank, notwithstanding any investigation made by or on behalf of Bank, and shall survive the execution and delivery to Bank of any Note(s) or Loan Document. 11.8 Addresses. Any notice or demand which by any provision of this Agreement is required or provided to be given shall be deemed to have been sufficiently given or served for all purposes by (i) being delivered in person to the party to whom the notice or demand is directed or (ii) by being sent as first class mail, postage prepaid, in either event to the following address: If to Borrower, 1750 East Sunrise Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33304, Attn.

Any written notice that is not sent in conformity with the provisions hereof shall nevertheless be effective on the date that such notice is actually received by the noticed party. 11.9 Venue and Jurisdiction. The parties agree that any legal action brought by the Bank to collect the Loans or any Obligation or to assert any claim by or against Borrower under any Loan Document, or any part thereof, shall be brought in any court in the State of Florida having subject matter jurisdiction, waives its right to object to any such action on grounds it is brought in the improper venue, and irrevocably consents that any legal action or proceeding against it under, arising out of, or in any manner relating to the Loans, the Obligations, or any Loan Document shall be brought in the Circuit Court of Palm Beach County, Florida or in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Borrower, by the execution of this Agreement, expressly and irrevocably assents and submits to the personal jurisdiction of any such court in any such action or proceeding. Borrower consents to the service of process relating to any such action or proceeding by mail to the address set forth in this Agreement. 28 <PAGE> 11.10 Continuing Obligation; Benefits. This Agreement, and each and every provision hereof, is a continuing obligation and shall (i) be binding upon the Borrower and the Bank, their successors and assigns, and (ii) inure to the benefit of and be enforceable by the Borrower and Bank and their successors and assigns; provided, that the Borrower may not assign all or any part of this Agreement without the prior written consent of Bank, which consent may be granted or withheld in the sole discretion of Bank. 11.11 Controlling Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida; provided, however, that if any of the Collateral shall be located in any jurisdiction other than Florida, the laws of such jurisdiction shall govern the method, manner and procedure for foreclosure of Bank's lien upon such Collateral and the enforcement of Bank's other remedies in respect of such Collateral to the extent that the laws of such jurisdiction are different from or inconsistent with the laws of Florida. 11.12 Standard of Review. Except as otherwise provided herein, any document, writing or instrument required or permitted to be delivered to Bank under this Agreement shall be deemed satisfactory only if approved by Bank in the exercise of its reasonable discretion. 11.13 Participation. Borrower acknowledges that Bank may, at its option, sell participation interests in the Loans to participating banks, subject to complying with FIRPTA. The amounts of any such participation shall be determined solely by the Bank. Borrower agrees with each present and future participant in the Loans, the names and addresses of which will be furnished to Borrower, that if an Event of Default should occur, each present and future participant shall have all of the rights and remedies of Bank with respect to any deposit due from any participant to Borrower. The execution by a participant of a participation agreement with Bank, and the execution by Borrower of this Agreement, regardless of the order of execution, shall evidence an agreement between Borrower and said participant in accordance with the terms of this Section. If Bank participates the Loan, the Borrower shall only be required to make payment at one location and deal with a single servicer at any given time. 11.14 Miscellaneous. This Agreement and the instruments and agreements referred to herein or called for hereby supersede and incorporate all representations, promises, and statements, oral or written, made by the Bank in connection with the Loans. This Agreement may not be varied, altered, or amended except by a written instrument executed by an authorized officer of the Bank. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, shall be an original, but such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same instrument. Any provision in this Agreement which may be unenforceable or invalid under any law shall be ineffective to the extent of such unenforceability or invalidity without affecting the enforceability or validity of any other provisions hereof. 11.15 Joint and Several Liability. All obligations of each Person named as Borrower shall be joint and several obligations of all such Persons. Each representation, warranty and covenant shall be deemed true and/or complied with, as the case may be, only (i) if true or complied with with respect to each separate entity constituting a Borrower taken on its own without reference to the other Borrower entities, and (ii) if true or complied with with respect to all entities constituting Borrower taken as a whole. 29 <PAGE> 11.16 General Waivers. To the fullest extent permitted by Applicable Law, Borrower waives, except as otherwise provided in the Loan Documents (i) presentment, demand and protest and notice of presentment, protest, default, nonpayment, maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension or renewal of any or all commercial paper, accounts, contract rights, documents, instruments, chattel paper and guaranties at any time held by Bank on which Borrower may in any way be liable; (ii) any bond or security which might be required by any court prior to allowing Bank to exercise any of Bank's remedies, (iii) the benefit of all valuation, appraisement and exemption laws; (iv) any right Borrower may have upon payment in full of the Obligations to require Bank to terminate its security interest in the Collateral until the execution by Borrower of an agreement indemnifying Bank from any loss or damage Bank may incur as the result of dishonored checks or other items of payment received by Bank from Borrower and applied to the Obligations; and (v) notice of Bank's acceptance hereof or of any Loan Document. 11.17 Maximum Interest. Regardless of any provision contained in this Agreement or any of the Loan Documents, in no event shall the aggregate of all amounts that are contracted for, charged or collected pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, the Note(s) or any of the Loan Documents, and that are deemed interest under Applicable Law, exceed the Maximum Rate. No provision of this Agreement or in any of the Loan Documents or the exercise by Bank of any right hereunder or under any Loan Document or the prepayment by Borrower of any of the Obligations or the occurrence of any contingency whatsoever, shall entitle Bank to charge or receive, or to require Borrower to pay, interest or any amounts deemed interest by Applicable Law (such amounts being referred to herein collectively as "Interest") in excess of the Maximum Rate, and all provisions hereof or in any Loan Document which may purport to require Borrower to pay Interest exceeding the Maximum Rate shall be without binding force or effect to the extent only of the excess of Interest over such Maximum Rate. Any Interest charged or received in excess of the Maximum Rate ("Excess"), shall be conclusively presumed to be the result of an accident and bona fide error, and shall, to the extent received by Bank, at the option of Bank, either be applied to reduce the principal amount of the Obligations or returned to Borrower. The right to accelerate the maturity of any of the Obligations does not include the right to accelerate unaccrued interest, and no such interest will be collected by Bank. All monies paid to Bank hereunder or under any of the Loan Documents shall be subject to any rebate of unearned interest as and to the extent required by Applicable Law. By the execution of this Agreement, Borrower covenants that (i) the credit or return of any Excess shall constitute the acceptance by Borrower of such Excess, and (ii) Borrower shall not seek or pursue any other remedy, legal or equitable, against Bank, based in whole or in part upon contracting for, charging or receiving any Interest in excess of the Maximum Rate. For the purpose of determining whether or not any Excess has been contracted for, charged or received by Bank, all interest at any time contracted for, charged or received from Borrower in connection with this Agreement shall, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread in equal parts throughout the full term of the Obligations. Borrower and Bank shall, to the maximum extent permitted under Applicable Law (i) characterize any non-principal payment as an expense, fee or premium rather than as Interest and (ii) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects thereof. The provisions of this Section shall be deemed to be incorporated into the Note(s) and each Loan Document (whether or not any provision of this Section is referred to therein). 30 <PAGE> 11.18 Waiver of Right to Trial by Jury. Borrower and Bank hereby waive any right to trial by jury on any claim, counterclaim, setoff, demand, action or cause of action (a) arising out of or in any way pertaining or relating to this Agreement, the Note(s), the Loan Documents, or any other instrument, document or agreement executed or delivered in connection with this Agreement or (b) in any way connected with or pertaining or related to or incidental to any dealings of the parties hereto with respect to this Agreement, the Note(s), the Loan Documents, or any other instrument, document or agreement executed or delivered in connection herewith or in connection with the transactions related thereto or contemplated thereby or the exercise of either party's rights and remedies thereunder, in all of the foregoing cases whether now existing or hereafter arising, and whether sounding in contract, tort or otherwise. Borrower and Bank agree that either or both of them may file a copy of this paragraph with any court as written evidence of the knowing, voluntary and bargained agreement between the parties irrevocably to waive trial by jury, and that any dispute or controversy whatsoever between them shall instead be tried in a court of competent jurisdiction by a judge sitting without a jury.
