to be charged by applicable law or regulations, as amended or enacted from time
to time. In the event the Note calls for an interest payment that exceeds the
maximum lawful rate of interest then applicable, such interest shall not be
received, collected, charged, or reserved until such time as that interest,
together with all other interest then payable, falls within the then applicable
maximum lawful rate of interest. In the event the Lender, or any subsequent
holder, receives any such interest in excess of the then maximum lawful rate of
interest, such amount which would be excessive interest shall be deemed a
partial prepayment of principal and treated hereunder as such, or, if the
principal indebtedness evidenced hereby is paid in full, any remaining excess
funds shall immediately be paid to the Borrower. In determining whether or not
the interest paid or payable, under any specific contingency, exceeds the
maximum lawful rate of interest, the Borrower and the Lender shall, to the
maximum extent permitted under applicable law, (a) exclude voluntary
prepayments and the effects thereof, and (b) amortize, prorate, allocate, and
spread, in equal parts, the total amount of interest throughout the entire term
of the indebtedness; provided that if the indebtedness is paid in full prior to
the end of the full contemplated term hereof, and if the interest received for
the actual period of existence hereof exceeds the maximum lawful rate of
interest, the holder of the Note shall refund to the Borrower the amount of
such excess or credit the amount of such excess against the principal portion
of the indebtedness as of the date it was received, and, in such event, the
Lender shall not be subject to any penalties provided by any laws for
contracting for, charging, reserving, collecting or receiving interest in
excess of the maximum lawful rate of interest.

         Principal and unpaid interest bear interest during the continuance of
any default in payment of principal and interest as herein provided at the
lesser of (i) the Base Rate (as defined in the Loan Agreement) plus 4% per
annum, or the maximum lawful rate of interest permitted by law. In case of
suit, or if this obligation is placed in an attorney's hands for collection, or
to protect the security for its payment, the undersigned will pay all costs of
collection and litigation, including a reasonable attorney's fee.

         In the event that there occurs any breach of any promise made in this
Note and such breach continues for longer than fifteen (15) days, or upon the
occurrence of an Event of Default as defined in the Loan Agreement, then,
during the continuance of any of such events, at the option of the holder, the
entire indebtedness hereby evidenced shall become due, payable and collectible
then or thereafter, without notice, as the holder may elect regardless of the
date of maturity. The holder may waive any default before or after the same has
been declared and restore this Note to full force and effect without impairing
any rights hereunder, such right of waiver being a continuing one.
