Parent acknowledges that Steel has granted or anticipates granting security interests in its accounts receivable and inventory.

It does not grant any rights to the holders of the Industrial Revenue Bonds or the other parties to the Assumed Leases or the Parent Obligations or the beneficiaries of the 1314B Guarantee and the Swap Guarantees. Among other things the parties may agree to amend or modify this Agreement as they mutually agree and nothing herein creates or is intended to create any obligation to redeem or repurchase any of these instruments.

(a) The following shall be Events of Default under this Agreement:
(i) (A) Steel shall fail to make any payment under any Bond Document or Assumed Lease when due;
