The Incremental Term Loan is secured by the same collateral securing the existing term loan on a pari passu basis and is subject to all provisions of the Loan Agreement, including those relating to prepayment, repayment and acceleration of maturity, guarantees, and covenants, limitations and events of default. The $50 million Incremental Term Loan has been fully funded.
