Subject to taking the actions specified in Section 3.5, Agent has a valid and perfected first priority Security Interest in the Collateral (except with respect to Trademarks, in which Agent has a valid and perfected second priority Security Interest) to the extent that a security interest therein may be perfected by the filing of a financing statement and the other actions referred to in Section 3.5, securing the payment of the Obligations, and Debtor acknowledges that such Security Interests are entitled to all of the rights, priorities and benefits afforded by the UCC or other applicable law as enacted in any relevant jurisdiction within the United States which relates to perfected security interests subject to Permitted Liens. 3.2 Organizational Information.

To the Debtor's knowledge, each material Account constitutes the legally valid and binding obligation of the applicable Account Debtor. No Account Debtor has any defense, set-off, claim or counterclaim against the Debtor that can be asserted against Agent, whether in any proceeding to enforce Agent's rights in the Collateral or otherwise, except defenses, setoffs, claims or counterclaims that are not, in the aggregate, material to the value of the Accounts taken as a whole. 3.7 Inventory.

Except in each case as set forth on Schedule IV hereto, the Debtor has no ownership interest in any material Chattel Paper, Letter-of-Credit Rights, Commercial Tort Claims, Documents, or Equipment covered by any certificate of title. 3.10 Control Arrangements.

If the Debtor is at any time assigned a new organizational identification number, it shall promptly notify Agent thereof in writing. 4.2 Accounts. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 4.2, the Debtor shall continue to collect, at its own expense, all amounts due or to become due to the Debtor with respect to Accounts and apply such amounts as are so collected to the outstanding balances thereof. In connection with such collections, the Debtor may take (and, at Agent's direction during the continuance of any Event of Default, shall take) such action as the -7- <PAGE> Debtor (or, during the continuance of an Event of Default, Agent) may deem necessary or advisable to enforce collection of the Accounts. Agent shall have the right if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing to: (i) notify the Account Debtor under any Accounts (or any other Person obligated thereon) of the Lien granted upon such Accounts in favor of Agent and to direct such Account Debtors and other Persons to make payment of all amounts due or to become due or otherwise render performance directly to Agent; (ii) exercise the rights of the Debtor with respect to the obligation of the Account Debtor to make payment or otherwise render performance to the Debtor and with respect to any property that secures the obligations of the Account Debtor or any other Person obligated on the Collateral; and (iii) adjust, settle or compromise the amount or payment of such Accounts. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, all amounts and Proceeds received by the Debtor with respect to the Accounts shall be received in trust for the benefit of Agent (on behalf of Lenders), and, at Agent's request, shall be segregated from other funds of the Debtor and forthwith paid over to Agent in the same form as so received (with any necessary endorsement) to be applied against the Obligations. 4.3 Intellectual Property. (a) The Debtor shall concurrently herewith deliver to Agent each Copyright Security Agreement and Trademark Security Agreement and all other documents, instruments and other items as may be necessary for Agent to file such agreements with the U.S. Copyright Office and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, as applicable, except any recordation cover sheets and the applicable recording fee pertaining thereto. (b) In the event the Debtor acquires or becomes the owner of any new or additional Federal Registration Collateral consisting of Patents, Trademarks, or material registered Copyrights in original programming of the Debtor and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, the Debtor shall give to Agent prompt written notice thereof, and shall within thirty (30) days of such notice amend (and hereby authorizes Agent to amend) the schedules to the respective security agreements or enter into new or additional security agreements to include any such new or additional Federal Registration Collateral thereon and provide all other documents, instruments and other items as may be necessary for Agent to file such agreements with the U.S. Copyright Office and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, as applicable, except any recordation cover sheets and the applicable recording fee pertaining thereto. (c) The Debtor shall: (i) diligently prosecute any application filed by the Debtor to register material Intellectual Property at any time pending; (ii) make application for registration or issuance of all newly-acquired material Intellectual Property owned by the Debtor as reasonably deemed appropriate by the Debtor; and (iii) preserve and maintain all rights in the material Intellectual Property owned by the Debtor unless the Debtor has a purpose in the ordinary course of business to do otherwise and to do otherwise could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. (d) The Debtor shall not abandon any right to file an application to register material Intellectual Property, nor shall the Debtor abandon any pending application to -8- <PAGE> register material Intellectual Property or material registered Intellectual Property unless the Debtor has a purpose in the ordinary course of business to do otherwise and to do otherwise could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. The Debtor will notify the Agent promptly if it knows that any application or registration relating to any Patents, Trademarks, or material registered Copyrights in original programming of the Debtor and its direct and indirect subsidiaries owned by it may become abandoned or dedicated to the public, or of any adverse determination or development (including the institution of, or any adverse determination or development in, any proceeding in the U.S. Copyright Office, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or any court) regarding the Debtor's ownership of such Federal Registration Collateral, or its right to maintain, register or patent the same. If any of the Debtor's rights to any Federal Registration Collateral consisting of material Intellectual Property are infringed, misappropriated or diluted by a third party, the Debtor will notify the Agent within thirty (30) days after it learns thereof and will, unless the Debtor shall reasonably determine that such undertaking would not be commercially reasonable, promptly sue for infringement, misappropriation or dilution and to recover any and all damages for such infringement, misappropriation or dilution, and/or take such other actions as the Debtor shall reasonably deem appropriate under the circumstances to protect such Federal Registration Collateral. (e) The Debtor shall not sell or assign or otherwise transfer or dispose of its interest in, or grant any license under, or otherwise encumber any Intellectual Property or enter into any other agreement with respect to any material Intellectual Property included in the Collateral, except in the ordinary course and consistent with past practices and except as permitted hereunder or under the Credit Agreement. The Debtor further agrees that it shall not take any action or permit any action to be taken by others subject to its control, including licensees, or knowingly fail to take any action which could materially and adversely affect the validity or enforcement of the rights granted to Agent under this Agreement, except as permitted hereunder or under the Credit Agreement. (f) The Debtor agrees to maintain the quality of any and all products in connection with which the Trademarks are used, unless Debtor has a purpose in the ordinary course of business to do otherwise and to do otherwise could not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. During the continuance of an Event of Default, the Debtor agrees that Agent, or a conservator appointed by Agent, shall have the right to establish such additional product quality controls as Agent, or said conservator, in its reasonable judgment, may deem necessary to assure the maintenance of the quality of products sold by the Debtor under the Trademarks. (g) Notwithstanding any Enforcement Action (as defined in the Intercreditor Agreement) by Trustee (as defined in the Intercreditor Agreement) against the Trademarks or the existence of an Enforcement Period (as defined in the Intercreditor Agreement) with respect thereto, Debtor hereby grants to Agent effective during the existence of an Event of Default, the following licenses with respect to the Intellectual Property to the extent it can lawfully grant such licenses and subject to any third party rights to such Intellectual Property (each, a "License"): (i) for a period of one (1) year after Agent completes foreclosure in Agent's security interest in the Collateral consisting of Inventory -9- <PAGE> (including work-in-process), a license to use the Intellectual Property for the purpose of completing the production, printing and/or manufacture of work-in-process Inventory, provided that such Inventory is completed in a manner that maintains the level of quality of such Inventory as comparable to that which prevailed prior to the Events of Default; and (ii) a license to use the Intellectual Property for the purpose of selling completed Inventory, including in such License, the right to make public displays or performances of any Collateral consisting of completed Inventory until such Inventory is sold off. Each License shall be worldwide, assignable, non-exclusive, include the right to sublicense and shall be free of obligation to pay royalties. If a sale, exclusive license or other transfer or conveyance is made of any Intellectual Property in compliance with the terms of the Credit Agreement, Agent's Security Interest in the subject Intellectual Property shall not be released or deemed released until the transferee or licensee thereof has executed a document in form reasonably acceptable to Agent, confirming and acknowledging the survival of the License. (h) If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Agent may (without assuming any obligation or liability thereunder), at any time and from time to time, in its sole and reasonable discretion, enforce (and shall have the exclusive right to enforce) against any licensee or sublicensee all rights and remedies of the Debtor in, to and under any of its Intellectual Property and take or refrain from taking any action under any thereof, and the Debtor releases the Agent and each other Secured Party from liability for, and agrees to hold the Agent and each other Secured Party free and harmless from and against any claims and expenses arising out of, any lawful action so taken or omitted to be taken with respect thereto, except for claims and expenses arising from the Agent's or such Secured Party's gross negligence or willful misconduct. (i) If Agent elects to exercise its remedies as set forth in that certain Deed of Trust With Assignment of Rents Security Agreement and Fixture Filing of even date herewith by Playboy Enterprises International, Inc. for the benefit of Agent, Debtor acknowledges and agrees that Agent, its assigns and any purchaser of the Playboy Mansion may use the term "Playboy Mansion" when describing such Playboy Mansion to the extent that such use constitutes a "fair use" under applicable trademark law. 4.4 Bailees. No material Collateral consisting of Equipment or Inventory shall at any time be in the possession or control of any warehouse, consignee, bailee or any of the Debtor's agents or processors without prior written notice to Agent and the receipt by Agent, if Agent has so requested, of warehouse receipts or bailee lien waivers (as applicable) reasonably satisfactory to Agent prior to the commencement of such possession or control. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Debtor shall, upon the request of Agent, notify any such warehouse, consignee, bailee, agent or processor of the Security Interests, shall instruct such Person to hold all such Collateral for Agent's account subject to Agent's instructions and shall obtain an acknowledgement from such Person that such Person holds the Collateral for Agent's benefit. 4.5 Chattel Paper and Instruments. The Debtor shall deliver to Agent all Tangible Chattel Paper and all Instruments (other than Tangible Chattel Paper and Instruments whose value does not exceed $25,000) duly endorsed and accompanied by duly -10- <PAGE> executed instruments of transfer or assignment, all in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Agent. The Debtor shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Agent with Control of all Electronic Chattel Paper by having Agent identified as the assignee of the Records pertaining to the single authoritative copy thereof and otherwise complying with the applicable elements of Control set forth in the UCC. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Debtor also shall deliver to Agent all security agreements securing any Chattel Paper and securing any Instruments. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Debtor will mark conspicuously all Chattel Paper and all Instruments with a legend, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Agent, indicating that such Chattel Paper and such Instruments are subject to the Security Interests. 4.6 Letters of Credit. At the Agent's request, Debtor shall use commercially reasonable efforts to deliver to Agent all Letters of Credit with a value in excess of $25,000, duly endorsed and accompanied by duly executed instruments of transfer or assignment, all in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Agent.

The Debtor shall cause all material Equipment and other material properties to be maintained and preserved in good and working order, ordinary wear and tear excepted, and promptly make or cause to be made all necessary repairs, replacements and other improvements in connection therewith (other than with respect to obsolete Equipment), except where the failure to do so would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. With respect to any item of Equipment that is covered by a certificate of title under a statute of any jurisdiction under the law of which indication of a security interest on such certificate is required as a condition of perfection thereof, upon request of Agent, the Debtor shall deliver to Agent any and all certificates of title, applications for title or similar evidence of ownership of all such Equipment which has a value in excess of $10,000 and shall execute and file with the registrar of motor vehicles or other appropriate authority in such jurisdiction an application or other document requesting the notation or other indication of the security interest created hereunder on such certificate of title. 4.8 Investment Property. At Agent's request, the Debtor shall take any and all actions as may be commercially reasonable to (i) cause Agent to obtain exclusive Control of any Investment Property owned by the Debtor in a manner reasonably acceptable to Agent and (ii) request from any issuers of Investment Property and such other Persons, for the benefit of Agent, written confirmation of Agent's Control over such Investment Property upon terms and conditions reasonably acceptable to Agent. 4.9 General Intangibles. The Debtor shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain any consents, waivers or agreements necessary to enable Agent to exercise remedies hereunder with respect to any of the Debtor's rights under any material General Intangibles, including the Debtor's rights as a licensee of material software and other Intellectual Property. -11- <PAGE> 4.10 Commercial Tort Claims. The Debtor shall advise Agent upon the Debtor becoming aware that it has any interest in a material Commercial Tort Claim. With respect to any material Commercial Tort Claim in which the Debtor has any interest, the Debtor shall execute and deliver such documents as may be necessary to create and perfect Agent's security interest in such Commercial Tort Claim. 4.11 Taxes and Claims. The Debtor shall pay when due all material property and other taxes, assessments and governmental charges imposed upon, and all claims against, the Collateral (including claims for labor, materials and supplies); provided that no such tax, assessment, charge or claim need be paid to the extent (i) it is not delinquent or thereafter payable without penalty, or (ii) it is being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings diligently conducted and for which adequate reserves have been provided in accordance with GAAP or (iii) the failure to pay such would not reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect. 4.12 Collateral Generally. (a) The Debtor hereby authorizes Agent to file one or more financing or continuation statements, and amendments thereto (or similar documents required by any laws of any applicable jurisdiction), relating to all or any part of the Collateral without the signature of the Debtor (to the extent such signature is required under the laws of any applicable jurisdiction), which financing statements may describe the Collateral as "all assets" or "all personal property" or words of like import. (b) The Debtor will furnish to Agent, from time to time upon reasonable request by Agent, statements and schedules further identifying, updating, and describing the Collateral and such other information, reports and evidence concerning the Collateral as Agent may reasonably request, all in reasonable detail. (c) The Debtor shall not use or permit any Collateral to be used unlawfully in any material respect or in violation of any provision of applicable law, or any policy of insurance covering any of the Collateral, in each case, in any material respect. (d) The Debtor shall give Agent not less than thirty (30) days prior written notice of any change in the Debtor's chief executive office and principal place of business or of any new location of business or any new location for any of the Collateral that is material to Debtor and that consists of Equipment or Inventory. With respect to any such new location, upon Agent's request, the Debtor shall execute and deliver such instruments, documents and notices and take such actions as may be necessary to create and perfect the Security Interests under the laws of the United States. (e) The Debtor shall keep full and accurate books and records relating to the Collateral and, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, at the request of Agent shall stamp or otherwise mark such books and records in such manner as Agent may reasonably request indicating that the Collateral is subject to the Security Interests. -12- <PAGE> (f) Except for the safe custody of any Collateral in its possession and the accounting for monies actually received hereunder, the Debtor agrees that Agent shall have no duties concerning the custody and preservation of any Collateral in its possession (or in the possession of any agent or bailee) or with respect to any income thereon or the preservation of rights against prior parties or any other rights pertaining thereto. Agent shall be deemed to have exercised reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Collateral in its possession if it takes such action for that purpose as Debtor reasonably requests in writing, but failure of Agent to comply with any such request at any time shall not of itself be deemed a failure to exercise reasonable care. Agent shall not be liable or responsible for any loss or damage to any of the Collateral, or for any diminution in the value thereof, by reason of the act or omission of any warehouseman, carrier, forwarding agency, consignee or other agent or bailee reasonably selected by Agent. (g) The Debtor assumes all liability and responsibility in connection with the Collateral acquired by it, and the liability of the Debtor to pay the Obligations shall in no way be affected or diminished by reason of the fact that such Collateral may be lost, stolen, damaged, or for any reason whatsoever unavailable to the Debtor. (h) Agent agrees that upon payment in full of all Obligations and the termination of the Committed Loans and all Support Agreements, the Security Interests shall automatically terminate and all rights to the Collateral shall revert to the Debtor. Agent further agrees that upon such termination of the Security Interests or release or re-assignment of any Collateral, Agent shall, at the expense of the Debtor, return all Collateral then in Agent's possession and execute and deliver to the Debtor such documents as the Debtor shall reasonably request to evidence the termination of the Security Interests or the release and re-assignment of such Collateral, as the case may be. 4.13 Liens. The Collateral will be subject to no Liens, other than Permitted Liens. 4.14 Maintenance of Insurance. The Debtor shall maintain with reputable insurance companies that are not Affiliates of the Debtor, insurance with respect to its properties and business against loss or damage of the kinds customarily insured against by Persons engaged in the same or similar business, of such types and in such amounts (after giving effect to any self-insurance compatible with the following standards) as are customarily carried under similar circumstances by such other Persons and providing for not less than thirty (30) days' prior notice to Agent of termination, lapse or cancellation of such insurance. If Debtor fails to maintain the insurance required by the immediately preceding paragraph, Agent may purchase such insurance at the Debtor's expense, to protect Agent's interests in the Collateral. This insurance may, but need not, protect the interests of the Debtor. The coverage that Agent purchases may not pay any claim that the Debtor may make or any claim that is made against the Debtor in connection with the Collateral. The Debtor may later cancel any insurance purchased by Agent, but only after providing Agent with evidence that the Debtor has obtained insurance as required by this Agreement. If -13- <PAGE> Agent purchases insurance for the Collateral, the Debtor will be responsible for the costs of that insurance, including interest and any other charges that may be imposed in connection with the placement of the insurance, until the effective date of the cancellation or expiration of the insurance. The costs of the insurance may be added to the Loans. The costs of the insurance may be more than the cost of insurance that the Debtor may be able to obtain on its own. 4.15 Federal Compliance. (a) The Debtor shall notify Agent in writing upon acquiring any ownership interest in Federal Registration Collateral. The Debtor shall take such steps as may be necessary in order to perfect the Agent's Security Interests in Federal Registration Collateral. (b) The Debtor shall notify Agent in writing of any Collateral which constitutes a claim against the United States government or any instrumentality or agency thereof, the assignment of which claim is restricted by federal law. Upon the reasonable request of Agent, the Debtor shall take such steps as may be necessary to comply with any applicable federal assignment of claims laws and other comparable laws. (c) The Debtor shall not produce any Inventory in violation of any provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, or in violation of any other law. 4.16 Debtor Remains Liable. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding: (i) the Debtor shall remain liable under the contracts and agreements included in the Collateral to the extent set forth therein and shall perform all of its duties and obligations thereunder to the same extent as if this Agreement had not been executed; (ii) the exercise by Agent of any of the rights hereunder shall not release the Debtor from any of its duties or obligations under the contracts and agreements included in the Collateral; (iii) neither Agent nor any Lender shall have any obligation or liability under the contracts and agreements included in the Collateral by reason of this Agreement, nor shall Agent nor any Lender be obligated to perform any of the obligations or duties of the Debtor thereunder or to take any action to collect or enforce any claim for payment assigned hereunder; and (iv) neither Agent nor any Lender shall have any liability in contract or tort for the Debtor's acts or omissions. 4.17 Other Documents and Actions. The Debtor shall, from time to time, at its expense, promptly execute and deliver all further instruments, documents and notices and take all further action that may be necessary in order to create, perfect and protect any Security Interests, or to enable Agent to exercise and enforce its rights and remedies hereunder or under any other Loan Document with respect to any Collateral. SECTION 5. Remedial Provisions. (a) Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Agent or its attorneys shall have the right without notice or demand or legal process (unless the same shall be required by applicable law), personally, or by an agent, (i) to enter -14- <PAGE> upon, occupy and use any premises owned or leased by the Debtor or where the Collateral is located (or is believed to be located) until the Obligations are paid in full without any obligation to pay rent to the Debtor, to render the Collateral useable or saleable and to remove the Collateral or any part thereof to the premises of Agent for such time as Agent may desire in order to effectively collect or liquidate the Collateral and use in connection with such removal any and all services, supplies and other facilities of the Debtor; (ii) to take possession of the Debtor's original books and records, to obtain access to the Debtor's data processing equipment, computer hardware and Software relating to the Collateral and to use all of the foregoing and the information contained therein in any manner Agent deems appropriate; and (iii) to notify postal authorities to change the address for delivery of the Debtor's mail to an address designated by Agent and to receive, open and dispose of all mail addressed to the Debtor. If the Debtor's books and records are prepared or maintained by an accounting service, contractor or other third party agent, the Debtor hereby irrevocably authorizes such service, contractor or other agent, upon notice by Agent to such Person that an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, to deliver to Agent or its designees such books and records, and to follow Agent's instructions with respect to further services to be rendered. (b) If any Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Agent may exercise in respect of the Collateral, in addition to all other rights and remedies provided for herein or otherwise available to it, all the rights and remedies of Agent on default under the UCC (whether or not the UCC applies to the affected Collateral) and also may: (i) require the Debtor to, and the Debtor hereby agrees that it will, at its expense and upon request of Agent forthwith, assemble all or part of the Collateral as directed by Agent and make it available to Agent at any place or places designated by Agent which is reasonably convenient to Agent in which event the Debtor shall at its own expense (A) forthwith cause the same to be moved to the place or places so designated by Agent, (B) store and keep any Collateral so delivered to Agent at such place or places pending further action by Agent, and (C) while Collateral shall be so stored and kept, provide such guards and maintenance services as shall be necessary to protect the same and to preserve and maintain the Collateral in good condition; (ii) withdraw all cash in any deposit account and apply such monies in payment of the Obligations; and (iii) without notice except as specified below, sell, lease, license or otherwise dispose of the Collateral or any part thereof by one or more contracts, in one or more parcels at public or private sale, and without the necessity of gathering at the place of sale of the property to be sold, at any of Agent's offices or elsewhere, at such time or times, for cash, on credit or for future delivery, and at such price or prices and upon such other terms as Agent may deem commercially reasonable. (c) The Debtor agrees that, to the extent notice of sale shall be required by law, a reasonable authenticated notification of disposition shall be a notification given at least ten (10) days prior to any such sale and such notice shall (i) describe Agent and the Debtor, (ii) describe the Collateral that is the subject of the intended disposition, (iii) state the method of intended disposition, (iv) state that the Debtor is entitled to an accounting of the Obligations and state the charge, if any, for an accounting, and (v) state the time and place of any public disposition or the time after which any private sale is to be made. At any sale of -15- <PAGE> the Collateral, if permitted by law, Agent may bid (which bid may be, in whole or in part, in the form of cancellation of indebtedness) for the purchase, lease, license or other disposition of the Collateral or any portion thereof for the account of Agent (on behalf of Lenders). Agent shall not be obligated to make any sale of Collateral regardless of notice of sale having been given. Agent may disclaim any warranties that might arise in connection with the sale, lease, license or other disposition of the Collateral and have no obligation to provide any warranties at such time. Agent may adjourn any public or private sale from time to time by announcement at the time and place fixed therefor, and such sale may, without further notice, be made at the time and place to which it was so adjourned. To the extent permitted by law, the Debtor hereby specifically waives all rights of redemption, stay or appraisal, which it has or may have under any law now existing or hereafter enacted. (d) If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Debtor hereby irrevocably authorizes and empowers Agent, without limiting any other authorizations or empowerments contained in any of the other Loan Documents, to assert, either directly or on behalf of the Debtor, any claims the Debtor may have, from time to time, against any other party to any of the agreements to which the Debtor is a party or to otherwise exercise any right or remedy of the Debtor under any such agreements (including, without limitation, the right to enforce directly against any party to any such agreement all of the Debtor's rights thereunder, to make all demands and give all notices and to make all requests required or permitted to be made by the Debtor thereunder). (e) If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the proceeds of any collection, enforcement, sale or other disposition of, or other realization upon, all or any part of the Collateral and any cash held in any deposit account shall be applied in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Credit Agreement. (f) The Debtor acknowledges and agrees that a breach of any of the covenants contained in Sections 4, 5 and 6 hereof will cause irreparable injury to Agent and that Agent has no adequate remedy at law in respect of such breaches and therefore agrees, without limiting the right of Agent to seek and obtain specific performance of other obligations of the Debtor contained in this Agreement, that the covenants of the Debtor contained in the Sections referred to in this Section shall be specifically enforceable against the Debtor. (g) No failure or delay on the part of Agent or any Lender in the exercise of any power, right or privilege hereunder shall impair such power, right or privilege or be construed to be a waiver of any default or acquiescence therein, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any such power, right or privilege preclude other or further exercise thereof or any other right, power or privilege. All rights and remedies existing under this Agreement are cumulative to, and not exclusive of, any rights or remedies otherwise available. SECTION 6. Attorney-in-Fact. The Debtor hereby irrevocably appoints Agent, its nominee, and any other Person whom Agent may designate, as the Debtor's attorney-in-fact, with full power during -16- <PAGE> the existence of any Event of Default, (i) to sign the Debtor's name on verifications of Accounts and other Collateral; (ii) to send requests for verification of Collateral to the Debtor's customers, Account Debtors and other obligors; (iii) to endorse the Debtor's name on any checks, notes, acceptances, money orders, drafts, and any other forms of payment or security that may come into Agent's possession or on any assignments, stock powers, or other instruments of transfer relating to the Collateral or any part thereof; (iv) to sign the Debtor's name on any invoice or bill of lading relating to any Collateral, on claims to enforce collection of any Collateral, on notices to and drafts against customers and Account Debtors and other obligors, on schedules and assignments of Collateral, on notices of assignment and on public records; (v) to notify the post office authorities to change the address for delivery of the Debtor's mail to an address designated by Agent; (vi) to receive, open and dispose of all mail addressed to the Debtor; and (vii) to do all things necessary to carry out the terms and provisions of this Agreement. To the fullest extent permitted by law, the Debtor hereby ratifies and approves all acts of any such attorney and agrees that neither Agent nor any such attorney will be liable for any acts or omissions nor for any error of judgment or mistake of fact or law other than, and to the extent of, such Person's gross negligence or willful misconduct.

SECTION 9. Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon and insure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns except that the Debtor may not assign its rights or obligations hereunder without the written consent of Agent. No sales of participations, other sales, assignments, transfers or other dispositions of any agreement governing or instrument evidencing the Obligations or any portion thereof or interest therein, made in accordance with the provisions of Section 10.07 of the Credit Agreement shall in any manner impair the Lien granted to Agent, for the benefit of Agent and Lenders, hereunder. SECTION 10. Changes in Writing. No amendment, modification, termination or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless the same shall be in writing signed by Agent.
