On September 27, 2013, the Company ("Borrower") entered into agreements with ACF FINCO I LP (successor-in-interest to Keltic Financial Partners II, LP) ("ACF") ("Lender"), that provides the Company with long term financing through a six million dollar ($6,000,000) secured revolving note (the "Note"). The Note has a term of three years and has no amortization prior to maturity. The interest rate for the Note is a fluctuating rate that, when annualized, is equal to the greatest of (A) the Prime Rate plus three and one quarter percent (3.25%), (B) the LIBOR Rate plus six and one quarter percent (6.25%), and (C) six and one half percent (6.50%), with the interest paid on a monthly basis. Loan advances pursuant to the Note are based on the accounts receivable balance and other assets. The Company incurred certain cash expense and commitment fees related to obtaining the agreement of approximately $170,000, which has been paid. The Note is secured by all of the Company's property and assets, whether real or personal, tangible or intangible, and whether now owned or hereafter acquired, or in which it now has or at any time in the future may acquire any right, title or interests. On January 1, 2016, the Company entered into an eighth Amendment and Waiver to the Loan and Security Agreement with ACF to increase the maximum amount of revolving credit under the Amended Loan Agreement from $6,000,000 to $10,000,000.

Pursuant to the Amendment, the Lender agreed (i) to decrease the annual Facility Fee (as defined in the Credit Agreement) payable by Borrower on the total Revolving Credit Limit (as defined in the Loan Agreement) to 0.75% , (ii) to allow the Borrower to make certain prepayments of amounts owed under the Amended Loan Agreement and the other loan documents on or prior to September 27, 2018, (iii) to amend the provision regarding liquidated damages payable by Borrower in the event of any early termination of the revolving credit line under the Amended Credit Agreement such that Borrower shall pay liquidated damages to Lender in an amount equal to the Revolving Credit Limit multiplied by (X) two percent (2.00%) if such prepayment, repayment, demand or acceleration occurs prior to September 28, 2017, and (Y) one percent (1.00%) if such prepayment, repayment, demand or acceleration occurs on or after September 28, 2017, (iv) to change the minimum EBITDA (as defined in the Amended Credit Agreement) thresholds required to be maintained by the Company as outlined below (v) to extend the Revolving Credit Termination Date to the earliest to occur of (a) September 27, 2018, (b) the date Lender terminates the Revolving Credit pursuant to the terms of the Amended Credit Agreement, and (c) the date on which repayment of the Revolving Credit, or any portion thereof, becomes immediately due and payable pursuant to the terms of the Amended Loan Agreement, (vi) to amend the definition of EBITDA and (vii) to change the Revolving Credit Rate to a fluctuating rate that, when annualized, is equal to the greatest of (A) the Prime Rate plus one and one half percent (1.50%), (B) the LIBOR Rate plus four and one half percent (4.50%), and (C) four and three quarters percent (4.75%). On January 20, 2017, the Company entered into a Tenth Amendment, Consent and Waiver to the Loan and Security Agreement. Pursuant to the Amendment, the Lender agreed (i) to consent to the Companys execution and delivery of the Addendum and the consummation of the transactions contemplated by the Addendum, (ii) to allow the Company to pay the Earnout (as defined in the Paladin Agreement) Cash Payment to the Sellers, (iii) to allow the Company to issue the Subordinated Note to the Sellers and (iv) to amend the terms of the Loan Agreement to reflect the amended and restructured terms of the Earnouts. In connection with the execution and delivery of the Amendment, the Sellers and the Lender executed and delivered Amendment No. 1 dated January 20, 2017 to the Subordination Agreement between the Sellers and the Lender dated as of January 1, 2016.
Also in connection with the execution of the Amendment, the Borrowers, the Validity Party, the Guarantor, the Subordinated Creditors and the Lender executed and delivered a Reaffirmation Agreement effective as of January 20, 2017 (the Reaffirmation Agreement) pursuant to which, among other things, (i) the Borrowers reaffirmed their obligations to Lender under each of the Loan Documents (as defined in the Reaffirmation Agreement), (ii) the Validity Party (as defined in the Reaffirmation Agreement) reaffirmed his obligations under the Validity Agreement (as defined in the Reaffirmation Agreement) and each of the Loan Documents, (iii) the Guarantor (as defined in the Reaffirmation Agreement) reaffirmed his obligations under the Amended and Restated Guaranty Agreement dated on or about September 27, 2013 and each of the Loan Documents and (iv) each of the Subordinated Creditors (as defined in the Reaffirmation Agreement) reaffirmed its obligations under its respective Subordination Agreement (as defined in the Reaffirmation Agreement).
