(b)        Repayment. Borrower shall make monthly payments of interest only commencing on the first (1st) Payment Date following the Funding Date of each Term Loan, and continuing on the Payment Date of each successive month thereafter through and including the Payment Date immediately preceding the Amortization Date. Borrower agrees to pay, on the Funding Date of each Term Loan, any initial partial monthly interest payment otherwise due for the period between the Funding Date of such Term Loan and the last day of the calendar month during which the Funding Date occurs. Commencing on the Amortization Date, and continuing on the Payment Date of each month thereafter, Borrower shall make consecutive equal monthly payments of principal, together with applicable interest, in arrears, to each Lender, as calculated by Collateral Agent (which calculations shall be deemed correct absent manifest error) based upon: (1) the amount of such Lender’s Term Loan, (2) the effective rate of interest, as determined in Section 2.3(a), and (3) a repayment schedule with respect to the Term Loans as set forth on the Amortization Table (as amended from time to time) attached to the Disbursement Letter entered into as of the Effective Date.

Each Term Loan may only be prepaid in accordance with Sections 2.2(c) and 2.2(d). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrower shall make monthly payments of interest only commencing on August 1, 2018, and continuing on the Payment Date of each successive two (2) months thereafter through and including the October 1, 2018. Thereafter, Borrower will resume making consecutive equal monthly payments of principal, together with applicable interest, in arrears, to each Lender in accordance with this Section 2.2(b). Furthermore, notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrower shall make a monthly payment of interest only on February 1, 2019 and shall thereafter resume making consecutive equal monthly payments of principal, together with applicable interest, in arrears, to each Lender in accordance with this Section 2.2(b).

 

  3.
