|iii)||Funding of Term Loan. The Lender shall fund the Term Loan amount on the Closing Date by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account specified in writing by the Borrower.|
Interest on the Term Loan. The principal amount of the Term Loan outstanding from time to time shall bear interest until maturity of the Term Note at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate. After maturity, whether on the Term Loan Maturity Date or on account of acceleration during the continuance of an Event of Default as provided herein, and until paid in full, the Term Loan shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the Base Rate plus five percent (5%); provided, however, the interest rate shall not in any event exceed the maximum rate of interest permitted by applicable law. Prior to maturity, accrued interest for each calendar monthly period, as applicable, shall be due and payable, in arrears, on the tenth (10th ) day of the immediately succeeding calendar monthly period.
Monthly Principal Amortization. The parties acknowledge that the Borrowing Base will decrease over time due to reduction of the number of and the principal balances under the Qualified MH Loans that secure the Term Loan (including by reason of regular payments collected upon such MH Loans, prepayments of such MH Loans and change in status of a Qualified MH Loan to a Disqualified MH Loan and/or Released Loan). Until the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan is paid in full, Borrower shall make monthly principal payments under the Term Loan in such amount (the Requisite Monthly Principal Payment Amount) equal to the difference between the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan and the Borrowing Base amount to the extent the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan exceeds the Borrowing Base amount, in each case as determined as of the 25th day of the preceding calendar month period. In the event the Borrowing Base amount exceeds the outstanding principal balance of the Term Loan as of the 25th day of the preceding calendar month period, no Requisite Monthly Principal Payment Amount shall be due with respect to such monthly period. The Requisite Monthly Principal Payment Amounts shall be due and payable on the tenth (10th ) day of each calendar month; and on the Term Loan Maturity Date or such earlier date as provided herein following acceleration, all remaining unpaid principal under the Term Loan and accrued but unpaid interest under the Term Loan shall be due and payable. Borrower or Pledgor on behalf of Borrower shall maintain adequate records of the collections on the Pledged MH Loans and Lender shall have the right to review such records upon request. No prepayment penalty or premium shall be due or payable in connection with any Requisite Monthly Principal Payment Amounts.
Borrowing Base Certificates.
