Lender’s agreement to the waiver set forth herein should not be construed as an indication that Lender would be willing to agree to any further or future consents, waivers, agreements to forbear or any modifications to any of the terms of the Credit Agreement, as amended hereby, or other Loan Documents, or in respect of any Potential Default or Default that may exist or that may occur.

The invalidity of a provision in a particular jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision in any other jurisdiction.
X.Multiple Counterparts and Electronic Signatures. This Second Amendment may be executed in any number of counterparts with the same effect as if all signatories had signed the same document. All counterparts must be construed together to constitute one and the same instrument.
