Principal Amount: $1,427,105.00   Initial Rate: 6.750%   Date of Note: September 30, 2005
PROMISE TO PAY. SYNERGETICS, INC. (MISSOURI CORPORATION) (“Borrower”) promises to pay to Union Planters Bank NA (“Lender”), or order, in lawful money of the United States of America, the principal amount of One Million Four Hundred Twenty-seven Thousand One Hundred Five & 00/100 Dollars ($1,427,105.00), together with interest on the unpaid principal balance from September 30, 2005, until paid in full.
PAYMENT. Subject to any payment changes resulting from changes in the Index, Borrower will pay this loan in 35 principal payments of $39,641.81 each and one final principal and interest payment of $39,872.07. Borrower’s first principal payment is due October 30, 2005, and all subsequent principal payments are due on the same day of each month after that. In addition, Borrower will pay regular monthly payments of all accrued unpaid interest due as of each payment date, beginning October 30, 2005, with all subsequent interest payments to be due on the same day of each month after that. Borrower’s final payment due September 30, 2008, will be for all principal and all accrued interest not yet paid. Unless otherwise agreed or required by applicable law, payments will be applied first to any accrued unpaid interest; then to principal; then to any unpaid collection costs; and then to any late charges. The annual interest rate for this Note is computed on a 365/360 basis; that is, by applying the ratio of the annual interest rate over a year of 360 days, multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days the principal balance is outstanding. Borrower will pay Lender at Lender’s address shown above or at such other place as Lender may designate in writing.
VARIABLE INTEREST RATE. The interest rate on this Note is subject to change from time to time based on changes in an independent index which is the highest base rate on corporate loans at large U.S. Money Center Commercial Banks that The Wall Street Journal publishes as the prime rate, (the “Index”). The Index is not necessarily the lowest rate charged by Lender on its loans. If the Index becomes unavailable during the term of this loan, Lender may designate a substitute index after notice to Borrower. Lender will tell Borrower the current Index rate upon Borrower’s request. The interest rate change will not occur more often than each day. Borrower understands that Lender may make loans based on other rates as well. The Index currently is 6.750% per annum. The interest rate to be applied to the unpaid principal balance of this Note will be at a rate equal to the Index, resulting in an initial rate of 6.750% per annum. NOTICE: Under no circumstances will the interest rate on this Note be more than the maximum rate allowed by applicable law.
PREPAYMENT. Borrower may pay without penalty all or a portion of the amount owed earlier than it is due, Early payments will not, unless agreed to by Lender in writing, relieve Borrower of Borrower’s obligation to continue to make payments under the payment schedule. Rather, early payments will reduce the principal balance due and may result in Borrower’s making fewer payments. Borrower agrees not to send Lender payments marked “paid in full”, “without recourse”, or similar language. If Borrower sends such a payment, Lender may accept it without losing any of Lender’s rights under this Note, and Borrower will remain obligated to pay any further amount owed to Lender. All written communications concerning disputed amounts, including any check or other payment instrument that indicates that the payment constitutes “payment in full” of the amount owed or that is tendered with other conditions or limitations or as full satisfaction of a disputed amount must be mailed or delivered to: Union Planters Corporation, Attn: Payment Disputes, P.O. Box 131, Memphis, TN 38103.
LATE CHARGE. If a payment is more than 11 days late, Borrower will be charged 6.000% of the unpaid portion of the regularly scheduled payment.

 


 

INTEREST AFTER DEFAULT. Upon default, including failure to pay upon final maturity, Lender, at its option, may, if permitted under applicable law, increase the variable interest rate on this Note to 3.000 percentage points over the Index. The interest rate will not exceed the maximum rate permitted by applicable law.

Events Affecting Guarantor. Any of the preceding events occurs with respect to any Guarantor of any of the indebtedness or any Guarantor dies or becomes incompetent, or revokes or disputes the validity of, or liability under, any guaranty of the indebtedness evidenced by this Note.
