Charges.

                  (a) The Account Party shall pay to the Issuing Lender a letter
of credit commission with respect to each Letter of Credit in an amount equal to

Party shall upon demand by the Issuing Lender pay or reimburse the Issuing
Lender for such normal and customary costs and expenses as are incurred or
charged by the Issuing Lender in issuing, effecting payment under, amending or

                  SECTION 2.3 Reimbursement Obligations. The Account Party
agrees to reimburse the Issuing Lender on each date on which the Issuing Lender
notifies the Account Party of the date and amount of a draft or drawing paid
under any Letter of Credit for the amount of (a) such draft or drawing, as

or any beneficiary of a Letter of Credit. The Account Party also agrees with the
Issuing Lender that the Issuing Lender shall not be responsible for, and the
Account Party's Reimbursement Obligations shall not be affected by, among other
things, the validity or genuineness of documents or of any endorsements thereon,
even though such documents shall in fact prove to be invalid, fraudulent or
forged, or any


                                       6
<PAGE>   7
dispute between or among the Account Party and any beneficiary of any Letter of
Credit or any other party to which such Letter of Credit may be transferred or
any claims whatsoever of the Account Party against any beneficiary of such
Letter of Credit or any such transferee. The Issuing Lender shall not be liable
for any error, omission, interruption or delay in transmission, dispatch or
delivery of any message or advice, however transmitted, in connection with any
Letter of Credit, except for errors or omissions caused by the Issuing Lender's
gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Account Party agrees that any action
taken or omitted by the Issuing Lender under or in connection with any Letter of
Credit or the related drafts or documents, if done in the absence of gross
negligence or willful misconduct and in accordance with the standards of care
specified in the Uniform Customs and, to the extent not inconsistent therewith,
the Code shall be binding on the Account Party and shall not result in any
liability of the Issuing Lender to the Account Party. The responsibility of the
Issuing Lender to the Account Party in connection with any draft presented for
payment under any Letter of Credit shall, in addition to any payment obligation
expressly provided for in such Letter of Credit, be limited to determining that
the documents (including each draft) delivered under such Letter of Credit in
connection with such presentment are in conformity with such Letter of Credit.

specified for payment under this Agreement to the Issuing Lender at its address
for notices specified in Section 5.3, in immediately available funds and shall
be made without any set-off, counterclaim or deduction whatsoever. Any payment
received after 2:00 p.m. (Charlotte time) shall be deemed to have been made on
the next succeeding Business Day for all purposes. If any payment under this
Agreement shall be specified to be made upon a day which is not a Business Day,
it shall be made on the next succeeding day which is a Business Day and such
extension of time shall in such case be included in computing any interest if
payable along with such payment. All fees payable hereunder shall be computed on
the basis of a 360-day year and assessed for the actual number of days elapsed
and interest shall be computed on the basis of a 365/66-day year and assessed
for the actual number of days elapsed.

                  SECTION 2.6 Evidence of Debt. The Issuing Lender shall
maintain, in accordance with its usual practice, an account or accounts
evidencing the indebtedness of the Account Party resulting from each drawing
under any Letter of Credit and the amounts of principal and interest payable and
paid from time to time in respect thereof hereunder. In any legal action or
proceeding in respect of this Agreement or any Letter of Credit, the entries
made in such account or accounts shall be prima facie evidence of the


                                       7
<PAGE>   8
existence and amounts of the obligations of the Account Party therein recorded,
provided that any failure to make any such recordation (or any error therein)
shall not affect the obligations of the Account Party to make payments required
under this Agreement or in respect of any Letter of Credit.

                  SECTION 2.7 Uniform Customs. THE LETTERS OF CREDIT SHALL BE
SUBJECT TO THE UNIFORM CUSTOMS.

                  (b) The Account Party will maintain the Lien created by this
      Agreement as a first, perfected security interest and defend the right,
      title and interest of the Issuing Lender in and to the Account Collateral

or agent shall be liable for any action lawfully taken or omitted to be taken by
any of them under or in connection with the Account Collateral or this
Agreement, except for its or their gross negligence or willful misconduct.

                  (b) This Agreement constitutes a legal, valid and binding
obligation of the Account Party enforceable in accordance with its terms, except
as affected by bankruptcy, insolvency, fraudulent conveyance, reorganization,
moratorium and other similar laws relating to or affecting creditors' rights

                  (c) The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement
