In addition, the K&R Amendment stated that the Company would make a prepayment of the outstanding principal balance owing under the K&R Note in the amount of $500,000.00 as a condition to such amendment’s effectiveness.

In addition, until paid in full, the Kletter Notes are subject to certain Intercreditor and Subordination Agreements dated as of the Closing Date, each between the Company, the respective note holder, and BofA (collectively, the “Subordination Agreements”). to the Subordination Agreements, all present and future indebtedness of the Borrowers and certain guarantors of the loan evidenced by the BofA Loan Agreement (the “Debtors”) to K&R and 7100 LLC is subordinate to all present and future indebtedness of the Debtors to BofA.
