A.Borrower and Bank are parties to the Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of July 3, 2015, as amended by (i) the First Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement, dated as of April 12, 2016, by and between Bank and Borrower, (ii) the Second Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement, dated July 27, 2016, by and between Bank and Borrower, (iii) the Third Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement, dated October 31, 2016, by and between Bank and Borrower, (iv) the Fourth Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement, dated February 28, 2017, by and between Bank and Borrower, and (iv) the Fifth Amendment to the Loan and Security Agreement, dated September 20, 2017, by and between Bank and Borrower (as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified through the date hereof, the “Existing Loan Agreement”) and various related agreements, documents and instruments (collectively with the Existing Loan Agreement, the “Existing Loan Documents”).
B.Bank and Borrower wish to amend and restate the Existing Loan Agreement as provided herein, without causing a novation of either of the Existing Loan Agreements or of any of the other Existing Loan Documents.

AGREEMENT
The parties agree as follows:
1.DEFINITIONS AND CONSTRUCTION.
1.1    Definitions. As used in this Agreement, all capitalized terms shall have the definitions set forth on Exhibit A. Any term used in the Code and not defined herein shall have the meaning given to the term in the Code.
1.2    Accounting Terms. Any accounting term not specifically defined on Exhibit A shall be construed in accordance with GAAP and all calculations shall be made in accordance with GAAP. The term “financial statements” shall include the accompanying notes and schedules.
2.    LOAN AND TERMS OF PAYMENT.
2.1    Credit Extensions.
(a)    Promise to Pay. Borrower promises to pay to Bank, in lawful money of the United States of America, the aggregate unpaid principal amount of all Credit Extensions made by Bank to Borrower, together with interest on the unpaid principal amount of such Credit Extensions at rates in accordance with the terms hereof.
(b)    Advances Under Revolving Line.
(i)    Amount.
(A)    Advances. Subject to and upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Borrower may request Advances (including Non-Formula Advances) in an aggregate outstanding amount not to exceed (i) the lesser of (A) the Revolving Line or (B) the Borrowing Base, (ii) less the aggregate undrawn face amount of the Letters of Credit issued under the Letter of Credit Sublimit. Amounts borrowed pursuant to this

1    



Section 2.1(b)(i)(A) may be repaid and reborrowed at any time without penalty or premium prior to the Revolving Maturity Date, at which time all Advances under this Section 2.1(b)(i)(A) shall be immediately due and payable.
(B)    Non-Formula Advances. Subject to and upon the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the portion of any Advance not covered (to the extent thereof) by clauses (a) and (b) of the definition of Borrowing Base shall be deemed a “Non-Formula Advance” hereunder. The Non-Formula Advances shall only be outstanding during the Non-Formula Advance Period in an amount not to exceed, when aggregated with the outstanding principal amount of the prior Non-Formula Advances, the lesser of (A) Consolidated Cash on deposit with Bank on such date and on deposit in deposit and investment accounts with other financial institutions for which Bank has received written evidence, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Bank, of the amount on deposit in such accounts (the “Non-Formula Advances Consolidated Cash”), as set forth in the current Borrowing Base Certificate, or (B) Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000). Amounts borrowed pursuant to this Section 2.1(b)(i)(B) may be repaid and reborrowed at any time without penalty or premium until the last day of the Non-Formula Advance Period, at which time all Non-Formula Advances under this Section 2.1(b)(i)(B) shall be immediately due and payable. Bank shall apply amounts received with respect to the outstanding principal amount of the Advances first to the Non-Formula Advances under this Section 2.1(b)(i)(B), and only when such Advances are repaid shall such amounts be applied to the Advances under Section 2.1(b)(i)(A).
(ii)    Form of Request. Whenever Borrower desires an Advance (including a Non-Formula Advance), Borrower will notify Bank by facsimile or electronic transmission or telephone no later than 12:00 noon, Pacific time, on the Business Day that the Advance is to be made; provided, however, that if such Advance is to be a LIBOR Rate Advance, such notification shall be made no later than the time prescribed in Section 2.6(a). Each such notification shall be promptly confirmed by a Payment/Advance Form in substantially the form of Exhibit C. Bank is authorized to make Advances under this Agreement based upon instructions received from a Responsible Officer or a designee of a Responsible Officer, or without instructions if in Bank’s reasonable discretion such Advances are necessary to meet Obligations which have become due and remain unpaid. Bank shall be entitled to rely on any facsimile or electronic transmission or telephonic notice given by a person who Bank reasonably believes to be a Responsible Officer or a designee thereof, and Borrower shall indemnify and hold Bank harmless for any damages or loss suffered by Bank as a result of such reliance. Bank will credit the amount of Advances made under this Section 2.1(b) to Borrower’s deposit account at Bank.
(iii)    Letter of Credit Sublimit. Subject to the availability under the Revolving Line, and in reliance on the representations and warranties of Borrower set forth herein, at any time and from time to time from the date hereof through the Business Day immediately prior to the Revolving Maturity Date, Bank shall issue for the account of Borrower such Letters of Credit as Borrower may request by delivering to Bank a duly executed letter of credit application on Bank’s standard form; provided, however, that the outstanding and undrawn amounts under all such Letters of Credit (i) shall not at any time exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit, and (ii) shall be deemed to constitute Advances for the purpose of calculating availability under the Revolving Line (but, for clarity, not for calculating interest hereunder unless and until charged as an Advance in accordance with the following sentence). Any drawn but unreimbursed amounts under any Letters of Credit shall be charged as Advances against the Revolving Line. All Letters of Credit shall be in form and substance acceptable to Bank in its sole discretion and shall be subject to the terms and conditions of Bank’s form application and letter of credit agreement. Borrower will pay any standard issuance and other fees that Bank notifies Borrower it will charge for issuing and processing Letters of Credit.
(iv)    Collateralization of Obligations Extending Beyond Maturity. If Borrower has not secured to Bank’s satisfaction its obligations with respect to any Letters of Credit that may extend beyond the Revolving Maturity Date, then, effective as of the Revolving Maturity Date, the balance in any deposit accounts held by Bank and the certificates of deposit or time deposit accounts issued by Bank in Borrower’s name (and any interest paid thereon or proceeds thereof, including any amounts payable upon the maturity or liquidation of such certificates or accounts), shall automatically secure such obligations to the extent of the then continuing or outstanding and undrawn Letters of Credit; provided, however, that if there are insufficient balances in such accounts to secure such obligations, Borrower shall promptly deposit such additional funds as are necessary to fully secure such obligations, as determined by Bank in its reasonable discretion, not to exceed one hundred five percent (105%) of the face amount of such outstanding and undrawn Letters of Credit. Borrower authorizes Bank to hold such balances in pledge and to decline

2    



to honor any drafts thereon or any requests by Borrower or any other Person to pay or otherwise transfer any part of such balances for so long as the Letters of Credit are outstanding or continue.
2.2    Overadvances. If the aggregate amount of the outstanding Advances exceeds the lesser of the Revolving Line or the Borrowing Base at any time, Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank, in cash, the amount of such excess. If the aggregate amount of the outstanding Non-Formula Advances exceeds the lesser of the Non-Formula Advances Consolidated Cash or Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000), Borrower shall immediately pay to Bank, in cash, the amount of such excess.
2.3    Interest Rates, Payments, and Calculations.
(a)Interest Rates; Advances. Borrower may periodically elect to have interest accrue on the Advances at (i) the Prime Rate plus the applicable margin as set out below (the “Prime Rate Margin”) (each such Advance a “Prime Rate Advance”), or (ii) the LIBOR Rate plus the applicable margin as set out below (the “LIBOR Rate Margin”) (each such Advance a “LIBOR Rate Advance”).
The Prime Rate Margin or the LIBOR Rate Margin on any date of determination is the percentage indicated in the table below, based on the Total Leverage Ratio as of the last day of the most recently completed Fiscal Quarter:

(a)    Late Fee; Default Rate. If any payment is not made within ten (10) days after the date such payment is due, Borrower shall pay Bank a late fee equal to the lesser of (i) two percent (2%) of the amount of such unpaid amount or (ii) the maximum amount permitted to be charged under applicable law. All Obligations shall bear interest, from and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, at a rate equal to five (5) percentage points above the interest rate applicable immediately prior to the occurrence of the Event of Default.
(b)    Payments. Interest hereunder shall be due and payable on the last calendar day of each month during the term hereof. Bank shall, at its option, charge such interest, all Bank Expenses, and all Periodic Payments against any of Borrower’s deposit accounts or against the Revolving Line, in which case those amounts shall thereafter accrue interest at the rate then applicable for Prime Rate Advances. Any interest not paid when due shall be compounded by becoming a part of the Obligations, and such interest shall thereafter accrue interest at the rate then applicable for Prime Rate Advances. All payments shall be free and clear of any taxes, withholdings, duties, impositions or other charges, to the end that Bank will receive the entire amount of any Obligations payable hereunder, regardless of source of payment.
(c)    Computation. With respect to Obligations bearing interest at the Prime Rate, in the event the Prime Rate is changed from time to time hereafter, the applicable rate of interest hereunder shall be increased or decreased, effective as of the day the Prime Rate is changed, by an amount equal to such change in the Prime Rate. All interest chargeable under the Loan Documents shall be computed on the basis of a three hundred sixty (360) day year for the actual number of days elapsed.
2.4    Crediting Payments. Prior to the occurrence of an Event of Default, Bank shall credit a wire transfer of funds, check or other item of payment to such deposit account or Obligation as Borrower specifies. After the occurrence of an Event of Default, Bank shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately apply any wire transfer of funds, check, or other item of payment Bank may receive to conditionally reduce Obligations, but such applications of funds shall not be considered a payment on account unless such payment is of immediately available federal funds or unless and until such check or other item of payment is honored when presented for payment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any wire transfer or payment received by Bank after 12:00

3    



noon, Pacific time, shall be deemed to have been received by Bank as of the opening of business on the immediately following Business Day. Whenever any payment to Bank under the Loan Documents would otherwise be due (except by reason of acceleration) on a date that is not a Business Day, such payment shall instead be due on the next Business Day, and additional fees or interest, as the case may be, shall accrue and be payable for the period of such extension.
2.5    Fees. Borrower shall pay to Bank the following:
(a)    Commitment Fee. A fee equal to One Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($125,000), which shall be paid on the Effective Date and each of the first two anniversaries of the Effective Date and shall be fully earned and nonrefundable on each date due.
(b)    Unused Facility Fee. A monthly Unused Facility Fee of the difference between the Revolving Line and the average outstanding principal balance of the Advances during such calendar month, which fee shall be payable within five (5) days of the last day of each calendar month until the Termination Date and shall be fully earned and nonrefundable. The Unused Facility Fee with respect to a calendar month shall be per annum rate equal to the rate set forth below based on the Total Leverage Ratio for the most recently completed Fiscal Quarter preceding such month.

(c)    Bank Expenses. On the Effective Date, all Bank Expenses incurred through the Effective Date, and, after the Effective Date, all Bank Expenses, as and when they become due.
2.6    Additional Provisions Regarding LIBOR Rate Advances.
(a)    Borrower may obtain LIBOR Rate quotes from Bank between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., Pacific time, on any Business Day. If Borrower elects to use the LIBOR-Based Rate interest option, Borrower shall give Bank irrevocable notice (either in writing or orally) between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., Pacific time, two (2) Business Days’ prior to the desired effective date of such LIBOR-Based Rate. Any oral notice shall be given by, and any written notice shall be signed by, a Responsible Officer, and shall specify the requested effective date of the LIBOR-Based Rate, the LIBOR Interest Period and the LIBOR Amount, and whether Borrower is requesting a new LIBOR Rate Advance, the conversion of all or any portion of a Prime Rate Advance to a LIBOR Amount, or a new LIBOR Interest Period for an outstanding LIBOR Amount. No more than one LIBOR-Based Rate request shall be in effect at any one time during the term of this Agreement, except that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Borrower may select a separate LIBOR Interest Period for up to five (5) different LIBOR Amounts (each of which LIBOR Amounts must be in the minimum amount of One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000)), provided that such selection is otherwise made in strict compliance with the terms of this Agreement.
(b)    If at any time the LIBOR Rate is unascertainable or unavailable to Bank or if LIBOR Rate Advances become unlawful, the option to select the LIBOR-Based Rate shall terminate immediately. If the LIBOR-Based Rate is then in effect, (i) it shall terminate automatically with respect to all LIBOR Amounts (A) on the last day of the respective LIBOR Interest Periods for such LIBOR Amounts if Bank may lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Rate Advances through such day, or (B) immediately if Bank may not lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Rate Advances through such day, and (ii) such LIBOR Amounts shall automatically become Prime Rate Advances upon such termination.
(c)    If at any time after the date hereof (i) any revision in or adoption of any applicable law, rule, or regulation or in the interpretation or administration thereof (A) shall subject Bank to any tax, duty, or other

4    



charge, or change the basis of taxation of payments to Bank with respect to any LIBOR Rate Advances, or (B) shall impose or modify any reserve, insurance, special deposit, or similar requirements against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by Bank, or impose on Bank any other condition affecting any such LIBOR Rate Advances, and (ii) the result of any of the foregoing is (A) to increase the cost to Bank of making or maintaining any such LIBOR Rate Advances or (B) to reduce the amount of any sum receivable under this Agreement by Bank, Borrower shall pay Bank within fifteen (15) days after demand by Bank such additional amount as will compensate Bank for such increased cost or reduction. The determination hereunder by Bank of such additional amount shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. If Bank demands compensation, Borrower may upon three (3) Business Days’ prior notice to Bank pay the accrued interest on all LIBOR Amounts, together with any additional amounts payable. Upon Borrower’s payment of such accrued interest and additional costs, the unpaid principal balance of such LIBOR Amounts shall immediately become Prime Rate Advances.
(d)    Borrower shall pay to Bank, on demand, such amount as Lender reasonably determines (determined as though 100% of the applicable LIBOR Amount had been funded in the London interbank market) is necessary to compensate Bank for any direct or indirect losses, expenses, liabilities, costs, expenses or reductions in yield to Bank, whether incurred in connection with liquidation or re-employment of funds or otherwise, incurred or sustained by Bank as a result of: (i) any payment or prepayment of a LIBOR Amount, termination of the LIBOR-Based Rate or conversion of a LIBOR Amount to a Prime Rate Advance on a day other than the last day of the applicable LIBOR Interest Period (including as a result of acceleration); or (ii) any failure of Borrower to borrow, continue or prepay any LIBOR Amount or to convert any portion of a Prime Rate Advance to a LIBOR Amount after Borrower has given a notice thereof to Bank.
(e)    If Borrower chooses the LIBOR-Based Rate, Borrower shall pay interest based on such rate, plus any other applicable taxes or charges hereunder, even though Bank may have obtained the funds loaned to Borrower from sources other than the London interbank market. Bank’s determination of the LIBOR-Based Rate and any such taxes or charges shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.
(f)    Notwithstanding any other term of this Agreement, Borrower may not select the LIBOR-Based Rate if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.
2.7    Term. This Agreement shall become effective on the Effective Date and, subject to Section 12.8, shall continue in full force and effect until the Termination Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Bank shall have the right to terminate its obligation to make Credit Extensions under this Agreement immediately and without notice upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default.

3.1    Conditions Precedent to Amendment and Restatement. The obligation of Bank to enter into this amendment and restatement of the Existing Loan Agreement is subject to the satisfaction of the following condition precedent :

(c)    no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, or would exist after giving effect to the amendment and restatement.
3.2    Conditions Precedent to all Credit Extensions. The obligation of Bank to make each Credit Extension is subject to the following conditions:
(a)    timely receipt by Bank of the Payment/Advance Form as provided in Section 2.1;
(b)    receipt by Bank of an executed Disbursement Letter in the form of Exhibit F attached hereto; and

The making of each Credit Extension shall be deemed to be a representation and warranty by Borrower and the Swiss Subsidiary on the date of such Credit Extension as to the accuracy of the facts referred to in this Section 3.2.
4.    CREATION OF SECURITY INTEREST.
4.1    Grant of Security Interest. Borrower grants and pledges to Bank a continuing security interest in the Collateral to secure prompt repayment of any and all Obligations and to secure prompt performance by Borrower of each of its covenants and duties under the Loan Documents. Other than with respect to any Liens described in clause (c) of the definition of Permitted Liens, such security interest constitutes a valid, first priority security interest in the presently existing Collateral, and will constitute a valid, first priority security interest in later-acquired Collateral. Borrower also hereby agrees not to sell, transfer, assign, mortgage, pledge, lease, grant a security interest in, or encumber any of its Intellectual Property Collateral, except in connection with Permitted Liens and Permitted Transfers. Notwithstanding any termination Bank’s commitment to make Credit Extensions under this Agreement, Bank’s Lien on the Collateral shall remain in effect for so long as any Obligations are outstanding.
4.2    Perfection of Security Interest. Borrower authorizes Bank to file at any time financing statements, continuation statements, and amendments thereto that (i) either specifically describe the Collateral or describe the Collateral as all assets of Borrower of the kind pledged hereunder, and (ii) contain any other information required by the Code for the sufficiency of filing office acceptance of any financing statement, continuation statement, or amendment, including whether Borrower is an organization, the type of organization and any organizational identification number issued to Borrower, if applicable. Any such financing statements may be filed by Bank at any time in any jurisdiction whether or not Article 9 of the Code is then in effect in that jurisdiction. Borrower shall from time to time endorse and deliver to Bank, at the request of Bank, all Negotiable Collateral and other documents that Bank may reasonably request, in form satisfactory to Bank, to perfect and continue perfection of Bank’s security interests

6    



in the Collateral and in order to fully consummate all of the transactions contemplated under the Loan Documents. Borrower shall have possession of the Collateral, except where expressly otherwise provided in this Agreement or where Bank chooses to perfect its security interest by possession in addition to the filing of a financing statement; provided, however, that Bank shall not take possession of Collateral consisting of operating assets to perfect its security interest therein so long as an Event of Default does not exist. Where Collateral is in possession of a third party bailee, Borrower shall take such steps as Bank reasonably requests for Bank to (i) obtain an acknowledgment, in form and substance satisfactory to Bank, of the bailee that the bailee holds such Collateral for the benefit of Bank, and (ii) obtain “control” of any Collateral consisting of investment property, deposit accounts (other than Excluded Accounts), letter-of-credit rights or electronic chattel paper (as such items and the term “control” are defined in Article 9 of the Code) by causing the securities intermediary or depositary institution or issuing bank to execute a control agreement in form and substance satisfactory to Bank. Borrower will not create any chattel paper without placing a legend on the chattel paper acceptable to Bank indicating that Bank has a security interest in the chattel paper. Borrower from time to time may deposit with Bank specific cash collateral to secure specific Obligations; Borrower authorizes Bank to hold such specific balances in pledge and to decline to honor any drafts thereon or any request by Borrower or any other Person to pay or otherwise transfer any part of such balances for so long as the specific Obligations are outstanding.
4.3    Right to Inspect. Bank (through any of its officers, employees, or agents) shall have the right, upon reasonable prior notice, from time to time during Borrower’s usual business hours but no more than twice a year (unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing), to inspect Borrower’s Books and to make copies thereof and to check, test, and appraise the Collateral in order to verify Borrower’s financial condition or the amount, condition of, or any other matter relating to, the Collateral.
4.4    Pledge of Collateral. Borrower hereby pledges, assigns and grants to Bank a security interest in all the Shares, together with all proceeds and substitutions thereof, all cash, stock and other moneys and property paid thereon, all rights to subscribe for securities declared or granted in connection therewith, and all other cash and noncash proceeds of the foregoing, as security for the performance of the Obligations. Borrower represents and warrants to Bank that as of the Closing Date there were no Material Foreign Subsidiaries (other than the Swiss Subsidiary); provided, however, that, as of the Effective Date the Korean Subsidiary is a Material Foreign Subsidiary and Borrower shall comply with Section 6.10 on or before the date specified in Section 6.12. To the extent required by the terms and conditions governing the Shares, Borrower shall cause the books of each entity whose Shares are part of the Collateral and any transfer agent to reflect the pledge of the Shares. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Bank may cause the transfer of any securities included in the Collateral (including, but not limited to, the Shares) into the name of Bank and cause new certificates representing such securities to be issued in the name of Bank or its transferee. Borrower will execute and deliver such documents, and take or cause to be taken such actions, as Bank may reasonably request to perfect or continue the perfection of Bank’s security interest in the Shares. Unless an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Borrower shall be entitled to exercise any voting rights with respect to the Shares and to give consents, waivers and ratifications in respect thereof, provided that no vote shall be cast or consent, waiver or ratification given or action taken which would be inconsistent with any of the terms of this Agreement or which would constitute or create any violation of any of such terms. All such rights to vote and give consents, waivers and ratifications shall terminate upon the occurrence and continuance of an Event of Default.
5.    REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.
Borrower represents and warrants as follows:
5.1    Due Organization and Qualification. Borrower and each Subsidiary is an entity duly existing under the laws of the jurisdiction in which it is organized and qualified and licensed to do business in any state in which the conduct of its business or its ownership of property requires that it be so qualified, except where the failure to do so could not reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Effect.
5.2    Due Authorization; No Conflict. The execution, delivery, and performance of the Loan Documents are within Borrower’s powers, have been duly authorized, and are not in conflict with nor constitute a breach of any provision contained in Borrower’s organizational documents, nor will they constitute an event of default

7    



under any material agreement by which Borrower is bound. Borrower is not in default under any agreement by which it is bound, except to the extent such default would not reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Effect.
5.3    Collateral. Borrower has rights in or the power to transfer the Collateral, and its title to the Collateral is free and clear of Liens, adverse claims, and restrictions on transfer or pledge except for Permitted Liens. All Collateral is located solely in the Collateral States. The Eligible Accounts of Borrower are bona fide existing obligations. The property or services giving rise to such Eligible Accounts has been delivered or rendered to the Account Debtor or its agent for immediate shipment to and unconditional acceptance by the Account Debtor. Borrower has not received notice of actual or imminent Insolvency Proceeding of any Account Debtor whose accounts are included in any Borrowing Base Certificate as an Eligible Account of Borrower. No licenses or agreements giving rise to such Eligible Accounts is with any Prohibited Territory or with any Person organized under or doing business in a Prohibited Territory. All Inventory is in all material respects of good and merchantable quality, free from all material defects, except for Inventory for which adequate reserves have been made. Except as set forth in the Schedule, none of the Collateral is maintained or invested with a Person other than Bank or Bank’s Affiliates.
5.4    Intellectual Property Collateral. Borrower is the sole owner of the Intellectual Property Collateral, except for non-exclusive licenses granted by Borrower to its customers in the ordinary course of business. To the best of Borrower’s knowledge, each of the Copyrights, Trademarks and Patents is valid and enforceable, and no part of the Intellectual Property Collateral has been judged invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, and no claim has been made to Borrower that any part of the Intellectual Property Collateral violates the rights of any third party except to the extent such invalidation, unenforceability or claim could not reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Effect. Except as set forth in the Schedule, Borrower’s rights as a licensee of intellectual property do not give rise to more than five percent (5%) of its gross revenue in any given month, including without limitation revenue derived from the sale, licensing, rendering or disposition of any product or service.
5.5    Name; Location of Chief Executive Office. Except as disclosed in the Schedule, Borrower has not done business under any name other than that specified on the signature page hereof, and its exact legal name is as set forth in the first paragraph of this Agreement. The chief executive office of Borrower is located in the Chief Executive Office State at the address indicated in Section 10.
5.6    Actions, Suits, Litigation, or Proceedings. Except as set forth in the Schedule, as of the Effective Date there are no actions, suits, litigation or proceedings, at law or in equity, pending by or against Borrower or any Subsidiary before any court, administrative agency, or arbitrator in which a likely adverse decision could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.
5.7    No Material Adverse Change in Financial Statements. All consolidated and consolidating financial statements related to Borrower and any Subsidiary that are delivered by Borrower to Bank fairly present in all material respects Borrower’s consolidated and consolidating financial condition as of the date thereof and Borrower’s consolidated and consolidating results of operations for the period then ended. There has not been a material adverse change in the consolidated or in the consolidating financial condition of Borrower since the date of the most recent of such financial statements submitted to Bank.
5.8    Solvency, Payment of Debts. Borrower is able to pay its debts (including trade debts) as they mature; the fair saleable value of Borrower’s assets (including goodwill minus disposition costs) exceeds the fair value of its liabilities; and Borrower is not left with unreasonably small capital after the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
5.9    Compliance with Laws and Regulations. Borrower and each Subsidiary have met the minimum funding requirements of ERISA with respect to any employee benefit plans subject to ERISA. No event has occurred resulting from Borrower’s failure to comply with ERISA that is reasonably likely to result in Borrower’s incurring any liability that could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Borrower is not an “investment company” or a company “controlled” by an “investment company” within the meaning of the Investment Company Act of 1940. Borrower is not engaged principally, or as one of the important activities, in the business of extending credit for the purpose of purchasing or carrying margin stock (within the meaning of Regulations T and U

8    



of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System). Borrower has complied in all material respects with all the provisions of the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. Borrower is in compliance with all environmental laws, regulations and ordinances except where the failure to comply is not reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect. Borrower has not violated any statutes, laws, ordinances or rules applicable to it, the violation of which could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. Borrower and each Subsidiary have filed or caused to be filed all tax returns required to be filed, and have paid, or have made adequate provision for the payment of, all taxes reflected therein except those being contested in good faith with adequate reserves under GAAP or where the failure to file such returns or pay such taxes could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

5.11    Government Consents. Borrower and each Subsidiary have obtained all consents, approvals and authorizations of, made all declarations or filings with, and given all notices to, all governmental authorities that are necessary for the continued operation of Borrower’s business as currently conducted, except where the failure to do so would not reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Effect.
5.12    Inbound Licenses. Except as disclosed on the Schedule, Borrower is not a party to, nor is bound by, any inbound license or other agreement, the failure, breach, or termination of which could reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Effect, or that prohibits or otherwise restricts Borrower from granting a security interest in Borrower’s interest in such license or agreement or any other property which prohibition or restriction could reasonably be expected to cause a Material Adverse Effect.

(h)    Sell the Collateral at either a public or private sale, or both, by way of one or more contracts or transactions, for cash or on terms, in such manner and at such places (including Borrower’s premises) as Bank determines is commercially reasonable, and apply any proceeds to the Obligations in whatever manner or order Bank deems appropriate. Bank may sell the Collateral without giving any warranties as to the Collateral. Bank may specifically disclaim any warranties of title or the like. This procedure will not be considered adversely to affect the commercial reasonableness of any sale of the Collateral. If Bank sells any of the Collateral upon credit, Borrower will be credited only with payments actually made by the purchaser, received by Bank, and applied to the indebtedness of the purchaser. If the purchaser fails to pay for the Collateral, Bank may resell the Collateral and Borrower shall be credited with the proceeds of the sale. Bank may credit bid and purchase at any public sale; and
(i)    Apply for the appointment of a receiver, trustee, liquidator or conservator of the Collateral, without notice and without regard to the adequacy of the security for the Obligations and without regard to the solvency of Borrower, any guarantor or any other Person liable for any of the Obligations.
Any deficiency that exists after disposition of the Collateral as provided above will be paid immediately by Borrower.
Bank may comply with any applicable state or federal law requirements in connection with a disposition of the Collateral and compliance will not be considered adversely to affect the commercial reasonableness of any sale of the Collateral.
9.2    Power of Attorney. Effective only upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints Bank (and any of Bank’s designated officers, or employees) as Borrower’s true and lawful attorney to: (a) send requests for verification of Accounts or notify Account Debtors of Bank’s security interest in the Accounts; (b) endorse Borrower’s name on any checks or other forms of payment or security that may come into Bank’s possession; (c) sign Borrower’s name on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any Account, drafts against Account Debtors, schedules and assignments of Accounts, verifications of Accounts, and notices to Account Debtors; (d) dispose of any Collateral; (e) make, settle, and adjust all claims under and decisions with respect to Borrower’s policies of insurance; (f) settle and adjust disputes and claims respecting the accounts directly with Account Debtors, for amounts and upon terms which Bank determines to be reasonable; (g) enter into a short-form intellectual property security agreement consistent with the terms of this Agreement for recording purposes only or modify, in its sole discretion, any intellectual property security agreement entered into between Borrower and Bank without first obtaining Borrower’s approval of or signature to such modification by amending Exhibits A, B, and C, thereof, as appropriate, to include reference to any right, title or interest in any Copyrights, Patents or Trademarks acquired by Borrower after the execution hereof or to delete any reference to any right, title or interest in any Copyrights, Patents or Trademarks in which Borrower no longer has or claims to have any right, title or interest; and (h) file, in its sole discretion, one or more financing or continuation statements and amendments thereto, relative to any of the Collateral without the signature of Borrower where permitted by law; provided Bank may exercise such power of attorney to sign the name of Borrower on any of the documents described in clauses (g) and (h) above, regardless of whether an Event of Default has occurred. The appointment of Bank as Borrower’s attorney in fact, and each and every

18    



one of Bank’s rights and powers, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable until all of the Obligations have been fully repaid and performed and Bank’s obligation to provide advances hereunder is terminated.
9.3    Accounts Collection. At any time after the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, Bank may notify any Person owing funds to Borrower under an Account of Bank’s security interest in such funds and verify the amount of such Account. Borrower shall collect all amounts owing to Borrower for Bank, receive in trust all payments as Bank’s trustee, and immediately deliver such payments to Bank in their original form as received from the Account Debtor, with proper endorsements for deposit.
9.4    Bank Expenses. If Borrower fails to pay any amounts or furnish any required proof of payment due to third persons or entities, as required under the terms of this Agreement, then Bank may do any or all of the following after reasonable notice to Borrower: (a) make payment of the same or any part thereof; (b) set up such reserves under the Revolving Line as Bank deems necessary to protect Bank from the exposure created by such failure; or (c) obtain and maintain insurance policies of the type discussed in Section 6.5 of this Agreement, and take any action with respect to such policies as Bank deems prudent. Any amounts so paid or deposited by Bank shall constitute Bank Expenses, shall be immediately due and payable, and shall bear interest at the then applicable rate hereinabove provided, and shall be secured by the Collateral. Any payments made by Bank shall not constitute an agreement by Bank to make similar payments in the future or a waiver by Bank of any Event of Default under this Agreement.
9.5    Bank’s Liability for Collateral. Bank has no obligation to clean up or otherwise prepare the Collateral for sale. All risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral shall be borne by Borrower.
9.6    No Obligation to Pursue Others. Bank has no obligation to attempt to satisfy the Obligations by collecting them from any other person liable for them and Bank may release, modify or waive any collateral provided by any other Person to secure any of the Obligations, all without affecting Bank’s rights against Borrower. Borrower waives any right it may have to require Bank to pursue any other Person for any of the Obligations.
9.7    Remedies Cumulative. Bank’s rights and remedies under this Agreement, the Loan Documents, and all other agreements shall be cumulative. Bank shall have all other rights and remedies not inconsistent herewith as provided under the Code, by law, or in equity. No exercise by Bank of one right or remedy shall be deemed an election, and no waiver by Bank of any Event of Default on Borrower’s part shall be deemed a continuing waiver. No delay by Bank shall constitute a waiver, election, or acquiescence by it. No waiver by Bank shall be effective unless made in a written document signed on behalf of Bank and then shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose for which it was given. Borrower expressly agrees that this Section 9.7 may not be waived or modified by Bank by course of performance, conduct, estoppel or otherwise.
9.8    Demand; Protest. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, Borrower waives demand, protest, notice of protest, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment and any other notices relating to the Obligations.
10.    NOTICES.

11.    CHOICE OF LAW AND VENUE; JURY TRIAL WAIVER; JUDICIAL REFERENCE.
California law governs the Loan Documents without regard to principles of conflicts of law. Borrower and Bank each submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the State and Federal courts in Santa Clara County, California; provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to operate to preclude Bank from bringing suit or taking other legal action in any other jurisdiction to realize on the Collateral or any other security for the Obligations, or to enforce a judgment or other court order in favor of Bank. Borrower expressly submits and consents in advance to such jurisdiction in any action or suit commenced in any such court, and Borrower hereby waives any objection that it may have based upon lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue, or forum non conveniens and hereby consents to the granting of such legal or equitable relief as is deemed appropriate by such court. Borrower hereby waives personal service of the summons, complaints, and other process issued in such action or suit and agrees that service of such summons, complaints, and other process may be made by registered or certified mail addressed to Borrower at the address set forth in, or subsequently provided by Borrower in accordance with, Section 10 and that service so made shall be deemed completed upon the earlier to occur of Borrower’s actual receipt thereof or three (3) days after deposit in the U.S. mails, proper postage prepaid.
BORROWER AND BANK EACH WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON THIS AGREEMENT, THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY CONTEMPLATED TRANSACTION, INCLUDING CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF DUTY AND ALL OTHER CLAIMS. THIS WAIVER IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR BOTH PARTIES TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. EACH PARTY HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER WITH ITS COUNSEL.
WITHOUT INTENDING IN ANY WAY TO LIMIT THE PARTIES’ AGREEMENT TO WAIVE THEIR RESPECTIVE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY, if the above waiver of the right to a trial by jury is not enforceable, the parties hereto agree that all disputes or controversies of any nature between them arising at any time shall be decided by a reference to a private judge, mutually selected by the parties (or, if they cannot agree, by the Presiding Judge of the Santa Clara County, California Superior Court) appointed in accordance with California Code of Civil Procedure Section 638 (or pursuant to comparable provisions of federal law if the dispute falls within the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal courts), sitting without a jury, in Santa Clara County, California; and the parties hereby submit to the jurisdiction of such court. The reference proceedings shall be conducted pursuant to and in accordance with the provisions of California Code of Civil Procedure §§ 638 through 645.1, inclusive. The private judge shall have the power, among others, to grant provisional relief, including, without limitation, entering temporary restraining orders, issuing preliminary and permanent injunctions and appointing receivers. All such proceedings shall be closed to the public and confidential and all records relating thereto shall be permanently sealed. If during the course of any dispute, a party desires to seek provisional relief, but a judge has not been appointed at that point pursuant to the judicial reference procedures, then such party may apply to the Santa Clara County, California Superior Court for such relief. The proceeding before the private judge shall be conducted in the same manner as it would be before a court under the rules of evidence applicable to judicial proceedings. The parties shall be entitled to discovery which shall be conducted in the same manner as it would be before a court under the rules of discovery applicable to judicial proceedings. The private judge shall oversee discovery and may enforce all discovery rules and orders applicable to judicial proceedings in the same manner as a trial court judge. The parties agree that the selected or appointed private judge shall have the power to decide all issues in the action or proceeding, whether of fact or of law, and shall report a statement of decision thereon pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure § 644(a). Nothing in this paragraph shall limit the right of any

20    



party at any time to exercise self-help remedies, foreclose against collateral, or obtain provisional remedies. The private judge shall also determine all issues relating to the applicability, interpretation, and enforceability of this paragraph.
12.    GENERAL PROVISIONS.
12.1    Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and permitted assigns of each of the parties and shall bind all Persons who become bound as a debtor to this Agreement; provided, however, that neither this Agreement nor any rights hereunder may be assigned by Borrower without Bank’s prior written consent, which consent may be granted or withheld in Bank’s sole discretion. Bank shall have the right to sell, transfer, negotiate, or grant participation in all or any part of, or any interest in, Bank’s obligations, rights and benefits hereunder; provided, however, that if any such sale or transfer is effected while no Event of Default exists, Borrower’s prior written consent shall be required, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.
12.2    Indemnification. Borrower shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Bank and its officers, employees, and agents against: (a) all obligations, demands, claims, and liabilities claimed or asserted by any other party in connection with the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents; and (b) all losses or Bank Expenses in any way suffered, incurred, or paid by Bank, its officers, employees and agents as a result of or in any way arising out of, following, or consequential to transactions between Bank and Borrower whether under this Agreement, or otherwise (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses), except for losses caused by Bank’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

12.7    Counterparts.

12.8    Survival. All covenants, representations and warranties made in this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect so long as any Obligations remain outstanding or Bank has any obligation to make any Credit Extension to Borrower. The obligations of Borrower to indemnify Bank with respect to the expenses, damages, losses, costs and liabilities described in Section 12.2 shall survive until all applicable statute of limitations periods with respect to actions that may be brought against Bank have run.
12.9    Confidentiality. In handling any confidential information, Bank and all employees and agents of Bank shall exercise the same degree of care that Bank exercises with respect to its own proprietary information of the same types to maintain the confidentiality of any non-public information thereby received or received pursuant to this Agreement except that disclosure of such information may be made (i) to the subsidiaries or Affiliates of Bank in connection with their present or prospective business relations with Borrower, (ii) to prospective transferees or purchasers of any interest in the Revolving Line, so long as such prospective transferees or purchasers are bound by

21    



confidentiality obligations substantially similar to those set forth in this Section 12.9, (iii) as required by law, regulations, rule or order, subpoena, judicial order or similar order, (iv) as may be required in connection with the examination, audit or similar investigation of Bank, (v) to Bank’s accountants, auditors and regulators, and (vi) as Bank may determine in connection with the enforcement of any remedies hereunder. Confidential information hereunder shall not include information that either: (a) is in the public domain or in the knowledge or possession of Bank when disclosed to Bank, or becomes part of the public domain after disclosure to Bank through no fault of Bank; or (b) is disclosed to Bank by a third party, provided Bank does not have actual knowledge that such third party is prohibited from disclosing such information.
12.10    Delivery of Termination Statements and Lien Releases. Upon termination of this Agreement and payment in full in cash and performance of all of the Obligations (other than unmatured indemnification Obligations as to which no claim for payment has been made and any cash collateralized Obligations pursuant to Section 2.1(b)(iv)), Bank shall deliver to Borrower (or shall authorize Borrower to record) termination statements, releases and any other documents necessary or appropriate to evidence the termination of the Liens securing payment of the Obligations (other than any Liens on cash collateral pursuant to Section 2.1(b)(iv) until the Obligations secured thereby have been satisfied).
12.11    Release by Borrower.
(a)    FOR GOOD AND VALUABLE CONSIDERATION, Borrower hereby forever relieves, releases, and discharges Bank and its present or former employees, officers, directors, agents, representatives, attorneys, and each of them, from any and all claims, debts, liabilities, demands, obligations, promises, acts, agreements, costs and expenses, actions and causes of action, of every type, kind, nature, description or character whatsoever, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, absolute or contingent, arising out of or in any manner whatsoever connected with or related to facts, circumstances, issues, controversies or claims existing or arising from the beginning of time through and including the Effective Date (collectively the “Released Claims”). Without limiting the foregoing, the Released Claims shall include all liabilities or claims arising out of or in any manner whatsoever connected with or related to the Loan Documents, the Recitals hereto, any instruments, agreements or documents executed in connection with any of the foregoing or the origination, negotiation, administration, servicing and/or enforcement of any of the foregoing.
(b)    In furtherance of the release in this Section 12.11, Borrower expressly acknowledges and waives all rights under Section 1542 of the California Civil Code, which provides as follows:
A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.

(c)    By entering into the release in this Section 12.11, Borrower recognizes that no facts or representations are ever absolutely certain and it may hereafter discover facts in addition to or different from those which it presently knows or believes to be true, but that it is the intention of Borrower hereby to fully, finally and forever settle and release all matters, disputes and differences, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected; accordingly, if Borrower should subsequently discover that any fact that it relied upon in entering into this release was untrue, or that any understanding of the facts was incorrect, Borrower shall not be entitled to set aside this release by reason thereof, regardless of any claim of mistake of fact or law or any other circumstances whatsoever. Borrower acknowledges that it is not relying upon and has not relied upon any representation or statement made by Bank with respect to the facts underlying this release or with regard to any of such party’s rights or asserted rights.
(d)    The release in this Section 12.11 may be pleaded as a full and complete defense and/or as a cross-complaint or counterclaim against any action, suit, or other proceeding that may be instituted, prosecuted or attempted in breach of this release. Borrower acknowledges that the release contained in this Section 12.11 constitutes a material inducement to Bank to enter into this Agreement, and that Bank would not have done so but for Bank’s expectation that such release is valid and enforceable in all events.

22    



(e)    The provisions, waivers and releases set forth in this Section 12.11 are binding upon Borrower and Borrower’s stockholders, officers, employees, agents, assigns and successors in interest. The provisions, waivers and releases of this Section 12.11 shall inure to the benefit of Bank and its stockholders, officers, employees, agents, assigns and successors in interest.
(f)    Borrower represents and warrants that Borrower is the sole and lawful owner of all right, title and interest in and to all of the Released Claims and Borrower has not heretofore voluntarily, by operation of law or otherwise, assigned or transferred or purported to assign or transfer to any Person any such Released Claim or any portion thereof. Borrower shall indemnify and hold harmless Bank from and against any claim, demand, damage, debt, liability (including payment of attorneys’ fees and costs actually incurred whether or not litigation is commenced) based on or arising out of any assignment or transfer prior to the date of this Agreement.
(g)    The provisions of this Section 12.11 shall survive payment in full of the Obligations, full performance of all the terms of this Agreement, and/or Bank’s actions to exercise any remedy available under this Agreement or otherwise.
12.12    No Novation. This Amended and Restated Loan Agreement amends and restates, in its entirety, the Existing Loan Agreement, and is not intended to be, and shall not be construed to create, a novation or accord and satisfaction with respect to the Obligations under the Existing Loan Agreement or any of the other Existing Loan Documents.
