     (c)  Third, to the balance of the Loan.

     9.05 Requirement for Notice of Default. Borrower shall give Intuit written notice of the occurrence of any Event of Default or the existence of any event which would, with the passage of time or giving of notice, constitute an Event of Default, immediately after discovery of any such event, and Borrower’s failure to give such notice to Intuit shall constitute an Event of Default.

10.    Collections.

Borrower may terminate this Agreement by delivering written notice to Intuit sixty (60) days prior to the Termination Date, upon which event all Indebtedness then outstanding shall be immediately due and payable.

     No extensions of the Termination Date will be granted for any reason. Borrower waives any claim to damages, including consequential damages, resulting from its inability to obtain or maintain a replacement for the Loan from another source following the Termination Date. Borrower agrees to make diligent efforts to obtain a warehouse line of credit for its operating needs from a party other than Intuit such that the replacement line is available prior to the Termination Date in accordance with Paragraph 6.17. Intuit shall have the right (but not the obligation) during the period when the Loan is outstanding, to investigate Borrower’s efforts and progress in obtaining such replacement warehouse line, and Borrower shall make periodic reports to Intuit, as requested by Intuit, on its progress in obtaining the replacement warehouse line.

     Termination of this Agreement by Borrower or Intuit will not alter any of the rights or obligations of the parties in respect of any transactions then pending hereunder, particularly the Indebtedness or obligation of Borrower or the right of Intuit to the Collateral.

Any amount of principal which is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise, shall be payable upon demand and bear interest until paid in full at the Default Rate of Interest as hereinafter defined. To the full extent permitted by applicable law, interest shall continue to accrue on this Note after the filing by or against the Borrower of any petition seeking any relief in bankruptcy or under any act or law pertaining to insolvency or debtor relief, whether state, federal or foreign. Capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Loan Agreement.

     Principal Repayment. The outstanding principal balance of this Note shall be repaid as set forth in the Loan Agreement. If not sooner paid, this Note shall be due and payable in full, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, whether due or overdue, on the Loan Agreement Termination Date.

     Voluntary Prepayments. This Note may be paid in full or in part at any time without a prepayment fee.

     Application of Prepayments. All payments received shall be applied as set forth in the Loan Agreement.

     Payment of Interest. Borrower shall pay to Intuit interest on the daily outstanding principal balance of the Loan at a variable per annum rate equal to the Applicable Base Rate in effect from time to time.

     Calculation of Interest. Interest shall be calculated by determining the daily outstanding amounts for Advances, and applying the applicable interest rate as set forth above to such Advances. Collateral Custodian’s and Intuit’s records shall be conclusive evidence of the proper calculation of interest due, absent manifest error.

     Payments. All principal and interest hereunder are payable in lawful money of the United States of America at the office of the Lender at the address shown above in immediately available funds and shall be made as set forth in Section 2 of the Loan Agreement.

     Late Payment Fee. A late payment charge of five percent (5%) of each late payment may be charged on any payment not received by Intuit within ten (10) calendar days after payment is due.

     Default Rate of Interest. During the continuance of any Event of Default for up to but not more than thirty (30) days, the Borrower shall pay to the Lender additional interest on the unpaid principal balance of the Note and, to the extent permitted by law, on any overdue installments of interest, at a rate

34



 

per annum equal to the stated interest rate under this Note plus 4%, or, during the continuance of any Event of Default that continues for more than 30 days, at a rate per annum equal to the stated interest rate under this Note plus 6%. Interest shall continue to accrue on the unpaid principal balance even if all sums due hereunder are accelerated and reduced to judgment.

     Waivers. The Borrower hereby expressly waives: (a) all presentments, demands for performance, notices of nonperformance, protests, notices of protest and notices of dishonor in connection with delivery, performance, or enforcement of this Note; (b) any requirement of diligence on the Lender’s part in the enforcement of its rights; (c) all defenses of usury; and (d) any and all notices which may be required to be given with respect to the Borrower’s liability (i) under the Loan Agreement or in respect of the Indebtedness or any other Secured Obligation (as defined below) or (ii) under any other Lender Agreement (as defined below). The Borrower consents that the Lender may (but is not obligated to): (i) release or surrender, exchange or substitute any Collateral held as security for the payment of this Note; (ii) release, add or substitute any other person or party primarily or secondarily liable for the payment of this Note; and (iii) extend the time for payment (regardless of the length or number thereof) or otherwise modify the terms of payment of any part or the whole of the debt evidenced hereby.

     “Lender Agreement” means the Loan Agreement, this Note, the Security Agreement, the Stock Purchase and Sale Agreement, the Custodial Agreement and any other agreement entered into between Borrower, Title Source, Inc., Rock Acquisition Corporation and/or any subsidiaries of them, and the Lender, and all statements, reports and certificates delivered by the Borrower to the Lender in connection therewith.

     “Secured Obligations” means all obligations and Indebtedness of the Borrower owing to the Lender under the Loan Agreement or any other Lender Agreement, including, without limitation, the obligation to pay the Indebtedness evidenced by this Note, and obligation to pay interest, fees, charges, expenses and indemnification under any Lender Agreement.

     Cross-Defaults. The occurrence or existence of an Event of Default under and as defined in the Loan Agreement or in any other documents, agreements or instruments securing and/or evidencing this Indebtedness shall constitute a default under this Note and shall entitle the Lender to accelerate the entire Indebtedness hereunder and take any other action provided for in any such agreements.

     Maximum Rate. All agreements between the Borrower and the Lender are hereby expressly limited so that in no event shall the amount paid or agreed to be paid to the Lender for the use or forbearance of the Indebtedness exceed the maximum permissible under applicable law, except to the extent such maximum may be, and effectively is, waived by the Borrower in the Loan Agreement and/or this Note. If fulfillment of any provision hereof or of the Loan Agreement shall involve transcending the highest lawful rate of interest, then, ipso facto, the interest rate on that obligation shall be reduced to the highest lawful rate, and if the Lender receives interest that exceeds the highest lawful rate, such excess interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal balance evidenced hereby and not to the payment of interest (except to the extent such limitations on the charging of interest are effectively waived by the Borrower). As used herein, the term “applicable law” means the New York law in effect as of the date hereof, provided, however, that in the event there is a change in the law which results in a higher permissible rate of interest, then this Note shall be governed by such new law as of its effective date. This provision shall control every other provision of all agreements between the Borrower and the Lender (except to the extent the limitations described in this provision are effectively waived by the Borrower). All claims and defenses of usury are waived by Borrower.

     Governing Law. This Note and all transactions hereunder and/or evidenced herein shall be governed by, construed, and enforced in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of New York.

35



 

     Attorneys’ Fees; Costs of Collection. If this Note shall not be paid when due Borrower will pay reasonable attorneys’ fees to the holder hereof together with costs and expenses of collection.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Borrower has caused this Note to be executed as an instrument under seal by its duly authorized representative all as of the date first above written.

37



 

3. Authorization to File Financing Statements. Debtor hereby irrevocably authorizes the Secured Party at any time and from time to time to file in any filing office in any Uniform Commercial Code jurisdiction any initial financing statements and amendments thereto that (a) indicate the Collateral (i) as all assets of Debtor or words of similar effect, regardless of whether any particular asset comprised in the Collateral falls within the scope of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State or such jurisdiction, or (ii) as being of an equal or lesser scope or with greater detail, and (b) provide any other information required by part 5 of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State, or such other jurisdiction, for the sufficiency or filing office acceptance of any financing statement or amendment, including (i) whether the Debtor is an organization, the type of organization and any organizational identification number issued to the Debtor and, (ii) in the case of a financing statement filed as a fixture filing or indicating Collateral as as-extracted collateral or timber to be cut, a sufficient description of real property to which the Collateral relates.

     4.1. Promissory Notes and Tangible Chattel Paper.

The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply to (i) any deposit account for which the Debtor, the depositary bank and the Secured Party have entered into a cash collateral agreement specially negotiated among them for the specific purpose set forth therein, (ii) a deposit account for which the Secured Party is the depositary bank and is in automatic control, (iii) deposit accounts specially and exclusively used for payroll, payroll taxes and other employee wage and benefit payments to or for the benefit of the Debtor’s employees, or (iv) any escrow and/or trust account for the benefit of any third party.

     4.3. Letter-of-Credit Rights. If the Debtor is at any time a beneficiary under one or more letters of credit available in the amount of $500,000 or more individually or $1,000,000 in the aggregate (but, following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, available in any

38



 

amount), the Debtor shall promptly notify the Secured Party thereof and, at the request and option of the Secured Party, the Debtor shall, pursuant to an agreement in form and substance satisfactory to the Secured Party, either (i) arrange for the issuer and any confirmer or other nominated person of such letter of credit to consent to an assignment to the Secured Party of the proceeds of the letter of credit, or (ii) arrange for the Secured Party to become the transferee beneficiary of the letter of credit, with the Secured Party agreeing, in each case, that the proceeds of the letter to credit are to be applied as provided in the Loan Agreement.

     4.5. Other Actions as to Any and All Collateral. The Debtor further agrees, at the written request and option of the Secured Party, to take any and all other actions the Secured Party may reasonably determine to be necessary or useful for the attachment, perfection and priority of, and, from and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the ability of the Secured Party to enforce, the Secured Party’s security interest in any and all of the Collateral, including, without limitation, (a) executing, delivering and, where appropriate, filing financing statements and amendments relating thereto under the Uniform Commercial Code, to the extent, if any, that the Debtor’s signature thereon is required therefor, (b) causing the Secured Party’s name to be noted as secured party on any certificate of title for a titled good, if such notation is a condition to attachment, perfection or priority of, or, from and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, ability of the Secured Party to enforce the Secured Party’s security interest in such Collateral, (c) complying with any provision of any statute, regulation or treaty of the United States as to any Collateral if compliance with such provision is a condition to attachment, perfection or priority of, or, from and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, ability of the Secured Party to enforce, the Secured Party’s security interest in such Collateral, (d) using its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain governmental and other third party waivers, consents and approvals in form and substance satisfactory to Secured Party, including, without limitation, any consent of any licensor, lessor or other person obligated on Collateral, (e) using its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain waivers from mortgagees and landlords in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Secured Party, and (f) taking all actions reasonably requested by the Secured Party under any other law, as reasonably determined by the Secured Party to be applicable.

40



 

respect to its properties and business against such casualties and contingencies as shall be in accordance with general practices of businesses engaged in similar activities in similar geographic areas. In addition, all such insurance shall name the Secured Party as additional loss payee. Without limiting the foregoing, Debtor will maintain insurance for errors and omissions and general liability for activities in mortgage banking, plus fidelity insurance or surety bonds covering employees, officers and agents with access to funds or monies belonging to Debtor or mortgagors under mortgage loans (commonly known as “mortgage bankers blanket bond” or similar).

Debtor shall furnish the Secured Party with certificates of insurance and policies evidencing compliance with the foregoing insurance provision.

11. Collateral Protection Expenses; Preservation of Collateral, Etc.

     11.1. Expenses Incurred by Secured Party. In the Secured Party’s discretion, if Debtor fails to do so following written demand from Secured Party, the Secured Party may discharge taxes and other encumbrances at any time levied or placed on any of the Collateral (unless being disputed in good faith) and pay any necessary filing fees or insurance premiums required hereunder. Debtor agrees to reimburse the Secured Party on demand for all expenditures so made. The Secured Party shall have no obligation to Debtor to make any such expenditures, nor shall the making thereof be construed as the waiver or cure of any Default or Event of Default.

     11.2. Secured Party’s Obligations and Duties. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, Debtor shall remain obligated and liable under each contract or agreement comprised in the Collateral to be observed or performed by the Debtor thereunder. The Secured Party shall not have any obligation or liability under any such contract or agreement by reason of or arising out of this Agreement or the receipt by the Secured Party of any payment relating to any of the Collateral, nor shall the Secured Party be obligated in any manner to perform any of the obligations of Debtor under or pursuant to any such contract or agreement. Beyond the exercise of reasonable care in the custody and preservation of Collateral in its possession, the Secured Party shall have no duty to collect, preserve or to protect the Collateral or preserve rights against prior parties under Section 9-207 of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State or otherwise. The Secured Party agrees to release its security interest in any item or items of Collateral which Debtor disposes of pursuant to and as permitted by the Guaranty and to execute such agreements and documents as the Debtor may reasonably request to evidence such release.

12. Securities and Deposits. From and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Secured Party may at any time, at its option, transfer to itself or any nominee any securities constituting Collateral, receive any income thereon and hold such income as additional Collateral or apply it to the Obligations. From and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Secured Party may demand, sue for, collect, or make any settlement or compromise which it deems desirable with respect to the Collateral. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other

41



 

agreement, in no event shall either Debtor or the Secured Party exercise any right to setoff mutual obligations.

13. Notification to Account Debtors and Other Persons Obligated on Collateral. From and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, (a) Debtor shall, at the request and option of the Secured Party, notify account debtors and other persons obligated on any of the Collateral of the security interest of the Secured Party in any account, chattel paper, general intangible, instrument or other Collateral and that payment thereof is to be made directly to the Secured Party or to any financial institution designated by the Secured Party as the Secured Party’s agent therefor, and (b) the Secured Party may itself, without notice to or demand upon the Debtor, so notify account debtors and other persons obligated on Collateral. After the appropriate making of such a request or the appropriate giving of any such notification, the Debtor shall hold any proceeds of collection of accounts, chattel paper, general intangibles, instruments and other Collateral received by the Debtor as trustee for the Secured Party without commingling the same with other funds of the Debtor and shall turn the same over to the Secured Party in the identical form received, together with any necessary endorsements or assignments.

Debtor hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints the Secured Party and any officer or agent thereof, with full power of substitution, as its true and lawful attorneys-in-fact with full irrevocable power and authority in the place and stead of the Debtor or in the Secured Party’s own name, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of this Agreement, from and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to take any and all appropriate action and to execute any and all documents and instruments that may be necessary or useful to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, hereby gives said attorneys the power and right, on behalf of the Debtor, without notice to or assent by the Debtor, to do the following:

          (a) upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, generally to sell, transfer, pledge, make any agreement with respect to or otherwise dispose of or deal with any of the Collateral in such manner as is consistent with the Uniform Commercial Code of the State and as fully and completely as though the Secured Party were the absolute owner thereof for all purposes, and to do, at the Debtor’s expense, at any time, or from time to time, all acts and things which the Secured Party deems necessary or useful to protect, preserve or realize upon the Collateral and the Secured Party’s security interest therein, in order to effect the intent of this Agreement, all at least as fully and effectively as the Debtor might do, including, without limitation, (i) the filing and prosecuting of registration and transfer applications with the appropriate federal, state, local or other agencies or authorities with respect to trademarks, copyrights and patentable inventions and processes, (ii) upon written notice to the Debtor, the exercise of voting rights with respect to voting securities, which rights may be exercised, if the Secured Party so elects, with a view to causing the liquidation of assets of the issuer of any such securities, and (iii) the execution, delivery and recording, in connection with any sale or other disposition of any Collateral, of the endorsements, assignments or other instruments of conveyance or transfer with respect to such Collateral; and

          (b) to the extent that the Debtor’s authorization given in Section 3 is not sufficient, to file such financing statements with respect hereto, with or without the Debtor’s signature, or a photocopy

42



 

of this Agreement in substitution for a financing statement, as the Secured Party may deem appropriate and to execute in the Debtor’s name such financing statements and amendments thereto and continuation statements which may require the Debtor’s signature.

     14.2. Ratification by Debtor. To the extent permitted by law, Debtor hereby ratifies all that said attorneys shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue hereof. This power of attorney is a power coupled with an interest and is irrevocable.

     14.3. No Duty on Secured Party. The powers conferred on the Secured Party hereunder are solely to protect its interests in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon it to exercise any such powers.

15. Rights and Remedies. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Secured Party, without any other notice to or demand upon the Debtor, shall have in any jurisdiction in which enforcement hereof is sought, in addition to all other rights and remedies, the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State and any additional rights and remedies which may be provided to a secured party in any jurisdiction in which Collateral is located, including, without limitation, the right to take possession of the Collateral, and for that purpose the Secured Party may, so far as the Debtor can give authority therefor, enter upon any premises on which the Collateral may be situated and remove the same and the Secured Party may in its discretion require the Debtor to assemble all or any part of the Collateral at such location or locations.

16. Reserved.

17. No Waiver. No party shall be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies in respect of the Obligations or the Collateral unless such waiver shall be in writing and signed by such party. No delay or omission on the part of any party in exercising any right or remedy shall operate as a waiver of such right or remedy or any other right or remedy. A waiver on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar to or waiver of any right or remedy on any future occasion. All rights and remedies of the parties whether evidenced hereby or by any other instrument or papers, shall be cumulative and may be exercised singularly, alternatively, successively or concurrently at such time or at such times as the applicable party deems expedient.

18. Suretyship Waivers by Debtor. Debtor waives demand, notice, protest, notice of acceptance of this Agreement, notice of loans made, credit extended, Collateral received or delivered or other action taken in reliance hereon and all other demands and notices of any description. With respect to both the Obligations and the Collateral, Debtor assents to any extension or postponement of the time of payment or any other indulgence, to any substitution, exchange or release of or failure to perfect any security interest in any Collateral, to the addition or release of any party or person primarily or secondarily liable, to the acceptance of partial payment thereon and the settlement, compromising or adjusting of any thereof, all in such manner and at such time or times as the Secured Party may deem advisable. Debtor further waives any and all other suretyship defenses.

19. Marshalling. The Secured Party shall not be required to marshal any present or future collateral security (including but not limited to the Collateral) for, or other assurances of payment of, the Obligations or any of them or to resort to such collateral security or other assurances of payment in any particular order, and all of its rights and remedies hereunder and in respect of such collateral security and other assurances of payment shall be cumulative and in addition to all other rights and remedies, however existing or arising. To the extent that it lawfully may, Debtor hereby agrees that it will not invoke any law relating to the marshalling of collateral which might cause delay in or impede the enforcement of the

43



 

Secured Party’s rights and remedies under this Agreement or under any other instrument creating or evidencing any of the Obligations or under which any of the Obligations is outstanding or by which any of the Obligations is secured or payment thereof is otherwise assured, and, to the extent that it lawfully may, Debtor hereby irrevocably waives the benefits of all such laws.

20. Proceeds of Dispositions; Expenses. Debtor shall pay to the Secured Party on demand any and all expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements, incurred or paid by the Secured Party in protecting, preserving or enforcing the Secured Party’s rights and remedies under or in respect of any of the Obligations or any of the Collateral. After deducting all of said expenses, the residue of any proceeds of collection or sale or other disposition of the Collateral shall, to the extent actually received in cash, be applied to the payment of the Obligations in such order or preference as is provided in the Loan Agreement, proper allowance and provision being made for any Obligations not then due. Upon the final payment and satisfaction in full of all of the Obligations and after making any payments required by Sections 9-608(a)(1)(C) or 9-615(a)(3) of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State, any excess shall be returned to the Debtor. In the absence of final payment and satisfaction in full of all of the Obligations, the Debtor shall remain liable for any deficiency.

21. Governing Law; Consent to Jurisdiction. The laws of the State of New York shall govern this Agreement, its construction, and the determination of any rights, duties or remedies of the parties arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement (regardless of the laws that might otherwise govern under applicable New York principles of conflicts of law). The parties acknowledge that the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York or any New York state court of competent jurisdiction located in New York county shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any case or controversy arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement and that all litigation arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement shall be commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York or in any New York state court of competent jurisdiction located in New York county. Each of the parties consents to be subject to personal jurisdiction of the courts of New York, including the federal courts in New York and to service of process in any such suit being made upon the Debtor by mail at the address specified in Section 12.01 of the Loan Agreement.

22. Waiver of Jury Trial; No Consequential Damages. EACH PARTY WAIVES ITS RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL WITH RESPECT TO ANY ACTION OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF ANY DISPUTE IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, ANY RIGHTS, REMEDIES, OBLIGATIONS, OR DUTIES HEREUNDER, OR THE PERFORMANCE OR ENFORCEMENT HEREOF OR THEREOF. EACH PARTY WAIVES ANY RIGHT WHICH IT MAY HAVE TO CLAIM OR RECOVER IN ANY LITIGATION REFERRED TO IN THE PRECEDING SENTENCE ANY SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY DAMAGES OTHER THAN, OR IN ADDITION TO, ACTUAL DAMAGES.

     11.2. Secured Party’s Obligations and Duties. Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, each Debtor shall remain obligated and liable under each contract or agreement comprised in the Collateral to be observed or performed by the Debtor thereunder. The Secured Party

52

Beyond the exercise of reasonable care in the custody and preservation of Collateral in its possession, the Secured Party shall have no duty to collect, preserve or to protect the Collateral or preserve rights against prior parties under Section 9-207 of the Uniform Commercial Code of the State or otherwise.

From and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the Secured Party may demand, sue for, collect, or make any settlement or compromise which it deems desirable with respect to the Collateral.

13. Notification to Account Debtors and Other Persons Obligated on Collateral. From and after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, (a) each Debtor shall, at the request and option of the Secured Party, notify account debtors and other persons obligated on any of the Collateral of the security interest of the Secured Party in any account, chattel paper, general intangible, instrument or other Collateral and that payment thereof is to be made directly to the Secured Party or to any financial institution designated by the Secured Party as the Secured Party’s agent therefor, and (b) the Secured Party may itself, without notice to or demand upon the Debtor, so notify account debtors and other persons obligated on Collateral. After the appropriate making of such a request or the appropriate giving of any such notification, the Debtor shall hold any proceeds of collection of accounts, chattel paper, general intangibles, instruments and other Collateral received by the Debtor as trustee for the Secured Party without commingling the same with other funds of the Debtor and shall turn the same over to the Secured Party in the identical form received, together with any necessary endorsements or assignments. To the extent permitted by this Agreement, the Secured Party shall apply the proceeds of collection of accounts, chattel paper, general intangibles, instruments and other Collateral received by the Secured Party to the Obligations, such proceeds to be immediately credited after final payment in cash or other immediately available funds of the items giving rise to them.

If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, the Secured Party, without any other notice to or demand upon the Debtors, shall have in any jurisdiction in which enforcement hereof is sought, in addition to all other rights and remedies, the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code of the State and any additional rights and remedies which may be provided to a secured party in any jurisdiction in which Collateral is located, including, without limitation, the right to take possession of the Collateral, and for that purpose the Secured Party may, so far as the Debtors can give authority therefor, enter upon any premises on which the Collateral may be situated and remove the same and the Secured Party may in its discretion require the Debtors to assemble all or any part of the Collateral at such location or locations.

16. Reserved.

17. No Waiver. No party shall be deemed to have waived any of its rights or remedies in respect of the Obligations or the Collateral unless such waiver shall be in writing and signed by such party. No delay or omission on the part of any party in exercising any right or remedy shall operate as a waiver of such right or remedy or any other right or remedy.

CUSTODIAL AGREEMENT

CONTRACT PERSONNEL ARRANGEMENT LETTER

July 31, 2002

Ms. Connie Berg, Assistant Treasurer
Intuit Inc.
2700 Coast Avenue
Mountain View, CA 94043

Dear Ms Berg:

This letter confirms Protiviti Inc.’s (“Protiviti”) arrangements to provide certain personnel to Intuit (“Client”). Protiviti shall provide to Client a Senior Consultant and Consultant (collectively, the “Personnel”) to perform certain services relating to mortgage warehousing functions at Quicken Loans Inc.’s (the “Company”) offices in Livonia, Michigan. The parties may increase, reduce or change the Personnel and/or Services by mutual written agreement.

Statement of Work:

The Personnel shall perform the following services (“Services”) under Client’s direction:

     See Attached Exhibit A.

The Personnel shall report directly and exclusively to Client, and Client shall be solely responsible for reviewing and approving any and all work performed by the Personnel. The Personnel shall observe Client’s reasonable policies regarding working conditions and business hours, to the extent such policies are made known to the Personnel.

The Personnel will provide Services commencing on July 28, 2002, and will provide the Services until January 31, 2003, subject to the termination rights set forth below and further subject to a two-month minimum engagement (which two-month minimum shall include and not be in addition to the period of notice for termination). If, for any reason, any Personnel is unable to complete the service period, or if his (her) performance does not meet Client’s expectations, Protiviti will endeavor to provide a suitable replacement who will be subject to Client’s approval. If Protiviti is unable to identify a replacement acceptable to Client, the service period will be deemed to have automatically ended with respect to that individual.

Client shall pay Protiviti for the Services at the following rates:

     The rate for Senior Consultant’s services will be $150 per hour.

     The rate for Consultant’s services will be $100 per hour.

Client shall pay the amounts payable hereunder to Protiviti within thirty (30) days of receipt of invoices submitted by Protiviti. Invoices will be sent bi-weekly, and a closing invoice will be sent upon completion of the Services. In the event of any dispute with regard to a portion of an

58



 

invoice, the undisputed portion shall be paid as provided herein. Any invoices remaining unpaid when due shall accrue interest at a rate of 1.5% per month.

In addition, Client shall reimburse Protiviti for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Protiviti or any Personnel in connection with providing the Services in accordance with Protiviti’s standard expense policies. The out-of-pocket expenses, which will include reasonable out of town living expenses, are estimated to be $1,600 per month; Client will provide copies of expense reports on request to Company.

In addition to the other responsibilities set forth in this agreement, Client shall cause on-site Personnel to be supplied with suitable office space, desks, storage, furniture and other normal office equipment support, including computer terminals, telephone service, postage, copying, typing, secretarial services and general office supplies which may be necessary in connection with Personnel’s performance of the Services.

Employees of Protiviti who perform Services hereunder shall remain the employees of Protiviti. Protiviti shall be responsible for the tax withholdings, payment of salaries, unemployment insurance, workers’ disability and compensation, social security contributions and employee benefits such as vacation, sick pay, insurance, pension and profit-sharing benefits of such Protiviti employees. In connection with this agreement, each party is an independent contractor and as such will not have any authority to bind or commit the other. Nothing herein shall be deemed or construed to create a joint venture, partnership or agency relationship between the parties for any purpose.

Client shall also be responsible for providing the Personnel with access to all individuals and tools reasonably necessary for the Personnel to perform the Services. Furthermore, it shall be Client’s responsibility to obtain any and all consents from third parties required to permit and authorize such access, and Client shall indemnify Protiviti against any claims arising out of Client’s failure to obtain any such consent.

The parties acknowledge that in the course of performance hereunder, the Personnel may use products, materials or methodologies proprietary to Protiviti or third parties. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Client shall not have or obtain any rights in such proprietary products, materials and methodologies of Protiviti or any third parties. This agreement shall not preclude Protiviti or the Personnel from providing any services to third parties, irrespective of their similarity to the Services delivered to Client pursuant to this agreement.

Client shall not solicit, hire or offer employment to any Personnel during the term of this agreement and for a period of one (1) year following the termination of this agreement, provided that public advertisements for employment to which Personnel respond directly will not be considered a violation of this provision. Any breach of this provision shall require Client to pay Protiviti an amount equal to one year’s salary of each individual with respect to which a breach occurred.

59



 

Protiviti represents that the Personnel possess the general skills, knowledge and experience to perform the Services. If the performance of any of the Personnel demonstrates that such person does not possess the general skill, knowledge and experience to perform the Services, Protiviti shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide Client with a suitable replacement for such person promptly after Client provides Protiviti with a reasonable description of the performance problem.

The Personnel shall at all times conduct all operations under this agreement in a manner to avoid the risk of loss, theft, or damage by vandalism, sabotage or other means to the Collateral (as such Collateral is defined in Exhibit A). The Personnel shall promptly take all reasonable precautions which are necessary and adequate to protect against conditions which involve a risk of loss, theft or damage to the Collateral. The Personnel will observe Company’s policies for non-disclosure and confidentiality of nonpublic personal information to which the Personnel have access during the engagement. As between Protiviti and Client, Protiviti is solely responsible for the safety of the Personnel.

Protiviti agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Client and its affiliates, and all of their respective officers, directors, agents and employees, harmless from and against any and all claims, including liabilities, actions, judgments, costs, and expenses and reasonable attorneys’ fees (collectively “Claims”), asserted by a third party arising out of or related to: (i) any breach or alleged breach of any of Protiviti’s obligations under this agreement; (ii) Protiviti’s negligent acts, omissions and/or willful misconduct in supplying the Services under this agreement, or negligent acts, omissions and/or willful misconduct of the Personnel or any other employee or agent of Protiviti; or (iii) any obligations imposed by law with respect to any withholding taxes, social security, unemployment or disability insurance, or similar items in connection with any payments made to Protiviti for the rendering of Services hereunder. This provision shall survive the termination of this agreement for any reason. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this agreement, Protiviti’s liability to Client under this agreement shall be limited to an amount not to exceed the fees paid to Protiviti by Client in the course of this engagement.

Protiviti will, at Protiviti’s expense, maintain insurance policies that cover Protiviti’s activities under this agreement and the activities of Protiviti’s employees, agents and representatives, including, but not limited to workers compensation insurance in the statutory limit of $1 million; comprehensive general liability of $1 million per occurrence and $2 million annual aggregate; errors and omissions liability with minimum limits of $15 million; and media liability with minimum limits of $     . Protiviti will name Client as an additional insured on each such policy. Upon the request of Client, Protiviti shall provide Client with a certificate of insurance evidencing such coverages. In addition, Protiviti will provide Client thirty (30) days advance written notice of any cancellation or reduction in coverage or limits. Protiviti will provide Client with a fidelity bond covering the Personnel with coverage of not less than $5 million.

EXCEPT IN CONNECTION WITH PROTIVITI’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING

60



 

NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER OR NOT THAT PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.

Client will not use or in any way associate the name of Protiviti with any work or work product of any Personnel in any oral or written communication with a third party, other than Company (as defined in Exhibit A). Protiviti will not use or in any way associate the name of Client with any work or work product of any Personnel in any oral or written communication with a third party, other than Company.

Either party may terminate this agreement for any reason upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to the other party. In the event of such termination, Client shall pay Protiviti for all Services rendered and expenses incurred by Protiviti prior to the date of termination.

This Agreement, to the extent it establishes legal rights and obligations between Protiviti and Client, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. The parties hereby consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts in Santa Clara County, California.

This agreement represents the entire agreement between you and us and supersedes all other communications between the parties concerning Protiviti’s providing personnel to Client to perform the Services.

We are pleased to have this opportunity to provide personnel to you.

Very truly yours,

Protiviti, Inc.

STATEMENT OF WORK

Recitals

     A. Under a Mortgage Warehousing Agreement between Client and Quicken Loans Inc., a Michigan corporation (“Company”) dated July 31, 2002 (“Loan Agreement”) Client has agreed to extend warehouse credit to Company, such credit to be secured by Collateral and other security, including but not limited to pledges made in a Pledge Agreement between Rock Acquisition Corporation, a Michigan corporation and Client, of even date herewith.

     B. Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Loan Agreement or the Contract Personnel Arrangement Letter, as applicable. In the event of any inconsistency in definitions of identical capitalized terms used in this Agreement, the Loan Agreement, or any other document that comprises a part of the transaction contemplated by this Agreement or the Loan Agreement, the definition in the document where the term is defined shall control. If such inconsistencies in definitions cannot be reconciled, the definitions in the Loan Agreement shall control.

Statement of Work

     1. Appointment of Custodian. Protiviti shall provide the Personnel to act as bailee and custodian for the exclusive benefit of the Client with respect to the Collateral (“Custodian”) and to perform duties in accordance with Client’s instructions, from the Company’s location in Livonia, Michigan, or at such other location as the Company shall maintain for the principal place of business of its mortgage lending operation. Custodian shall not deliver possession of Collateral to the Company except in accordance with Client’s written instructions. Client will make reasonable efforts to ensure that notice to Custodian is timely given such that delivery or redelivery of Collateral to the Company as permitted by this Agreement is not delayed.

     2. Delivery of Required Documents, Review of Collateral.

     (a)  From time to time, the Company shall deliver or cause to be delivered to Custodian collateral consisting of Mortgage Loans (“Collateral”). Such delivery shall be effected by delivery of the Required Documents (as described in the Loan Agreement), not later than 2:00 p.m. eastern standard time on the first Business Day such Collateral is to be included in the computation of the Borrowing Base pursuant to the Loan Agreement.

     (b)  Within one (1) Business Day after receipt of Required Documents for any Collateral delivered by 2:00 p.m. eastern standard time on any Business Day, or within two (2) Business Days after receipt of Required Documents for any Collateral delivered after such time on any Business Day, Custodian shall review the same and verify that:

     (1)  The Required Documents relating to the Collateral appear regular on their face and are in the possession of Custodian;

63



 

     (2)  All submitted documents are consistent as to borrower name, property address, loan face amount (which does not exceed the face amount of the related promissory note), loan interest rate, loan type, loan term and Company’s loan number;

     (3)  The note and mortgage/deed of trust each bear an original signature or signatures which appear to be those of the person or persons named as the maker and mortgagor/trustor, or, in the case of a certified copy of the mortgage/deed of trust, such copy bears what appears to be a reproduction of such signature or signatures; and

     (4)  The amount of each note and mortgage delivered to Custodian corresponds to advances made by Client to Company pursuant to the Loan Agreement.

If Custodian notes any exception to items (1), (2), (3) or (4) above, Custodian shall prepare a report noting such exception (an “Exception Report”) and deliver it by facsimile or electronic transmission to the Client and the Company as soon as the review is complete but in no event later than 5:00 p.m. eastern standard time on the next Business Day. The Collateral on the Exception Report shall not be included in the Borrowing Base until such exception is cured. Custodian shall be the arbiter of whether exceptions have been cured.

     (c)  Custodian shall prepare and deliver to Client at Client’s request, daily, with a copy to Company, a report pertaining to the Collateral in Custodian’s possession from time to time.

     3. Handling of Collateral.

     (a)  Except as otherwise provided herein, all Collateral at any time delivered to Custodian hereunder shall be held in a fire resistant vault, drawer or other suitable depository maintained and controlled solely by Custodian, conspicuously marked to show the interest therein of the Client, and Collateral shall not be commingled with any other assets or property of, or held by, Custodian.

     (b)  Custodian shall not release any item of Collateral from the security interest created hereby or by the Loan Documents without the prior consent of the Client, except as otherwise provided by this Agreement.

     (c)  Custodian may, provided no Event of Default is continuing, release documentation relating to Mortgage Loans to the Company against a Trust Receipt executed by the Company. Custodian will hold all Trust Receipts in the same manner as it holds other Collateral hereunder. The Company will not make any request for release of Collateral except for the purpose of correcting clerical or other documentation errors to the Mortgage Loans in anticipation of their sale to Investors.

     (d)  Custodian will release Mortgage Loans to Investors promptly upon request by Company provided that a copy of the Bailee Agreement in the form attached to the Loan Agreement as Exhibit A-4 accompanies the Mortgage Loans in all cases where the Mortgage Loans are released to Investors prior to receipt from such Investors of the purchase price for the Mortgage Loans. Payments by Investors of the purchase price for Mortgage Loans shall be wired to an account held by Client (“Account”). All amounts payable on account of the sale of Collateral will be paid directly by the Investor to the Account.

64



 

     4. Assistance to the Custodian. To the extent that Custodian’s reporting or other duties under this Agreement reasonably require assistance from Company’s staff, Company shall make its staff members available to Custodian to assist in the performance of Custodian’s duties. Such assistance will be at the expense of Company.

     5. Reporting Duties of Custodian. Custodian shall have the right and obligation to report to Client daily on the Collateral received by Custodian, the funds received in the Account from Investors, the Requests for Advances received from Company, the Collateral requested to be released by Company, the Collateral released to Investors, and any other matter that Client deems reasonably necessary or desirable in connection with the Loan. To effectuate this reporting, Custodian shall have reasonable access to Company’s books and records, including accounting records, and to Company’s premises, employees and all other data and information used by Company in conducting its mortgage loan origination business. At Client’s option, Custodian shall also have the right and obligation to make periodic reports on loan products, credit quality and other non-financial aspects of Company’s operations, and Company shall provide Custodian reasonable access to its records, employees and other information for this purpose.

     6. Fees and Expenses of Protiviti. In consideration of Custodian’s services provided hereunder, Company agrees to reimburse monthly to Client the fees and expenses incurred by Client as a result of Client’s engagement of Protiviti, on or before the fifteenth (15th) day of each month commencing thirty (30) days after Protiviti is appointed and serving, and continuing monthly until the Indebtedness is fully paid and the Client’s security interest in all remaining Collateral is released.

     7. Replacement Custodian. The Client may replace Protiviti as Custodian at any time in its sole discretion; any such replacement Custodian shall have the same rights and responsibilities as the initial Custodian appointed hereunder; alternatively, the Client may act as Custodian itself, through any one or more of its employees, agents or officers, as it may in its sole discretion determine. Client will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the timing of the appointment of any substitute or replacement Custodian will not impede the business of the Company and will provide Company notice of the identity of any replacement Custodian.

     8. No Reliance. Except as set forth to the contrary hereunder, Custodian shall not be responsible for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties contained herein or in the Loan Agreement or any document, instrument or agreement made in connection with or securing or supporting the Indebtedness (the Loan Agreement and such documents, instruments and agreements shall each be referred to herein as a “Loan Document” and collectively as the “Loan Documents”), or for the execution, effectiveness, genuineness, validity, enforceability, collectability, accuracy, completeness or sufficiency of this Agreement or any Loan Document or instruments executed and delivered in connection with this Agreement or the other Loan Documents.

     9. Availability of Documents. During normal business hours, and upon notice to Company, the Client and its employees, officers, directors, agents, accountants, attorneys and auditors, and other parties with the express permission of Client, may examine the files, documents, records and other papers in the possession or under the control of Custodian relating to the Collateral, and may make copies thereof.

65



 

     10. Event of Default. Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, Custodian shall at the request and direction of the Client, without notice to or demand upon the Company, deliver the Collateral (or portions thereof and proceeds thereof) to the Client as provided in the Loan Agreement and the other Loan Documents.

66

     (b)  Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Secured Party shall have the right, at any time in its discretion and without notice to Pledgor to transfer to or to register on the books of the issuers (or of any other Person maintaining records with respect to the Collateral) in the name of Secured Party or any of its nominees any or all of the Collateral. In addition, the Secured Party shall have the right at any time to exchange certificates or instruments representing or evidencing Collateral for certificates or instruments of smaller or larger denominations.

     (c)  If, at any time and from time to time, any Collateral (including any certificate or instrument representing or evidencing any Collateral) is in the possession of a Person other than Secured Party or Pledgor (a “Holder”), then Pledgor shall immediately, at Secured Party’s option, either cause such Collateral to be delivered into Secured Party’s possession, or cause such Holder to enter into a control agreement, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Secured Party, and take all other steps deemed necessary by Secured Party to perfect the security interest of Secured Party in such Collateral.

     (d)  If at any time, and from time to time, any Collateral consists of an uncertificated security then Pledgor shall immediately cause such Collateral to be registered in the name of Secured Party, or otherwise cause Secured Party’s security interest thereon to be perfected in accordance with applicable law.

4.    Voting Rights and Dividends.

     (a)  So long as no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Pledgor shall be entitled to exercise any and all voting and other consensual rights pertaining to the Collateral and shall be entitled to receive any cash dividends or distributions paid or distributed in respect of the Collateral provided such dividends or distributions are applied to payments under the Note (as defined in the Purchase Agreement).

69



 

     (b)  Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, all rights of Pledgor to exercise the voting and other consensual rights or receive cash dividends or distributions that it would otherwise be entitled to exercise or receive, as applicable pursuant to Section 4(a), shall cease, and all such rights shall thereupon become vested in Secured Party, who shall thereupon have the sole right to exercise such voting or other consensual rights and to receive and retain such cash dividends and distributions. Pledgor shall execute and deliver (or cause to be executed and delivered) to Secured Party all such proxies and other instruments as Secured Party may reasonably request for the purpose of enabling Secured Party to exercise the voting and other rights which it is entitled to exercise and to receive the dividends and distributions that it is entitled to receive and retain in each case pursuant to the preceding sentence.

5.    [Reserved]

9.    Remedies upon Default.

     Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default:

     (b)  Pledgor hereby acknowledges that the sale by Secured Party of any Collateral pursuant to the terms hereof in compliance with the Securities Act of 1933 as now in effect or as hereafter amended, or any similar statute hereafter adopted with similar purpose or effect (the “Securities Act”), as well as applicable “Blue Sky” or other state securities laws, may require strict limitations as to the manner in which Secured Party or any subsequent transferee of the Collateral may dispose thereof. Pledgor acknowledges and agrees that in order to protect Secured Party’s interest it may be necessary to sell the Collateral at a price less than the maximum price attainable if a sale were delayed or were made in another manner, such as a public offering under the Securities Act. Pledgor agrees that, upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, Secured Party may, subject to applicable law, from time to time attempt to sell all or any part of the Collateral by a private placement, restricting the bidders and prospective purchasers to those who will represent and agree that they are purchasing for

11.    Indemnity and Expenses.

     Pledgor agrees to pay and reimburse Secured Party upon demand for all reasonable costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) that Secured Party may incur in connection with (i) the custody, use or preservation of, or the sale of, collection from or other realization upon, any of the Collateral, including the reasonable expenses of re-taking, holding, preparing for sale or lease, selling or otherwise disposing of or realizing on the Collateral, (ii) the exercise or enforcement of any rights or remedies granted hereunder, under the Guaranty, or otherwise available to it (whether at law, in equity or otherwise), or (iii) the failure by Pledgor to perform or observe any of the provisions hereof. The provisions of this Section shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement, the repayment of any of the Secured Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.

12.    Duties of Secured Party.

     The powers conferred on Secured Party hereunder are solely to protect its interests in the Collateral and shall not impose on it any duty to exercise such powers. Beyond the exercise of reasonable care in the custody and preservation of Collateral in its possession, the Secured Party shall have no duty to collect, preserve or protect the Collateral or preserve rights against prior parties.

Upon any such termination, Secured Party will, at Pledgor’s expense, execute and deliver to Pledgor such documents as Pledgor shall reasonably request to evidence such termination. Such documents shall be prepared by Pledgor and shall be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to Secured Party.

17.    Security Interest Absolute.

     To the maximum extent permitted by law, all rights of Secured Party, all security interests hereunder, and all obligations of Pledgor hereunder, shall be absolute and unconditional irrespective of:

GUARANTY AND SURETY AGREEMENT

     THIS GUARANTY AND SURETY AGREEMENT (this “Agreement”), dated as of July 31, 2002 by Rock Acquisition Corporation, a Michigan corporation, and Title Source, Inc., a Michigan corporation, jointly and severally (collectively, the “Guarantors” and each a “Guarantor”).

WITNESSETH:

     Background. Intuit Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Intuit”), and Quicken Loans Inc., a Michigan corporation (the “Borrower”), have executed and delivered a certain Mortgage Warehousing Agreement dated the date hereof (the “Loan Agreement”). As an inducement to Intuit to enter into the Loan Agreement, the Guarantors have agreed, jointly and severally, to guarantee all Obligations (as defined below) of the Borrower and to execute and deliver this Guaranty and Surety Agreement. All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein will have the meanings set forth in the Loan Agreement.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the Guarantors hereby agree, jointly and severally, as follows:

     1. The Guarantors, jointly and severally, hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably guarantee to Intuit and to its successors and permitted assigns, and become surety to Intuit and to its successors and permitted assigns for, the prompt and unconditional payment and performance of all obligations of the Borrower (including any trustee or debtor in possession of or for the Borrower) to Intuit arising out of or provided for in the Loan Agreement and the Security Agreement of even date herewith from the Borrower to Intuit (collectively, the “Related Documents”) or under any renewals, extensions or modifications thereof, whether primary, secondary, direct, contingent, sole, joint, several or joint and several, including without limitation the payment of (i) the total amount of principal under the Loan Agreement, (ii) all interest, costs, charges, expenses and reasonable attorneys’ fees payable in accordance with the Loan Agreement as the same shall become due and payable (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) and (iii) all other obligations of any kind owing from time to time by the Borrower under the terms of any Related Document (hereinafter referred to individually as an “Obligation” and collectively as “Obligations”). If any Obligation is not paid or performed by the Borrower punctually when due, subject to any applicable grace period, including without limitation any Obligation due by acceleration of the maturity thereof, the Guarantors will, upon Intuit’s demand, immediately pay or perform such Obligation or cause the same to be paid or performed strictly in accordance with the terms thereof. The Guarantors, jointly and severally, will pay to Intuit, upon demand, all losses and reasonable costs and expenses, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees, which Intuit may incur in the collection or enforcement of the Obligations or of the Guarantors’ obligations under this Agreement. This is a guaranty of payment and performance and not of collectibility.

     2. The Guarantors further hereby unconditionally and irrevocably agree and guarantee to make full and prompt payment to Intuit of any of the Obligations which Intuit is subsequently ordered or required to pay or disgorge on the grounds that such payments constituted an avoidable preference or a fraudulent transfer under applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or fraudulent transfer laws; and the Guarantors, jointly and severally, shall fully and promptly indemnify Intuit for all costs (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred by Intuit in defense of such claims of avoidable preference or fraudulent transfer. The Guarantors further agree, jointly and severally, to pay to Intuit, upon demand, all losses and reasonable costs and expenses, including without limitation reasonable

76



 

attorneys’ fees, that may be incurred by Intuit in attempting to cause the Obligations to be satisfied or in attempting to cause satisfaction of the Guarantors’ liability under this Agreement.

     3. The Guarantors hereby:

          (a) Assent to all terms of the Related Documents and all agreements hereafter made by the Borrower with Intuit;

          (b) Agree that Intuit may, without limitation and without modifying, limiting, releasing, discharging or otherwise affecting the Guarantors’ obligations under this Agreement:

               (i) Exchange, release or surrender to the Borrower or to any guarantor, pledgor, or grantor any collateral, or waive, release or subordinate any security interest, in whole or in part, now or hereafter held as security for any of the Obligations;

               (ii) Waive or delay the exercise of any of its rights or remedies against the Borrower or any other person or entity, including, without limitation, the Guarantors or any other guarantor;

               (iii) Release the Borrower or any other person or entity, including, without limitation, any other guarantor;

               (iv) Renew, extend, or modify the terms of, any of the Obligations or any instrument or agreement evidencing the same; and

               (v) Apply payments by the Borrower, the Guarantors, or any other person or entity, to any of the Obligations;

          (c) Waive all notices whatsoever with respect to this Agreement or with respect to the Obligations, including, but without limitation, notice of:

               (i) Intuit’s acceptance hereof or its intention to act, or its action, in reliance hereon;

               (ii) The present existence or future incurring of any of the Obligations or any terms or amounts thereof or any change therein;

               (iii) Any default by the Borrower or any surety, pledgor, grantor of security, or guarantor, including, without limitation, the Guarantors; and

               (iv) The obtaining or release of any guaranty or surety agreement (in addition to this Agreement), pledge, assignment, or other security for any of the Obligations.

     The Guarantors waive notice of presentment, demand, protest and notice of nonpayment, protest in relation to any instrument evidencing any of the Obligations, and any other demands and notices required by law, except as such waiver may be expressly prohibited by law.

     4. The liability of the Guarantors under this Agreement is absolute and unconditional, jointly and severally, primary, direct and immediate, without regard to the liability of any other person, and shall not in any manner be affected by reason of any action taken or not taken by Intuit, which action

77



 

or inaction is herein consented and agreed to, nor by the partial or complete unenforceability or invalidity of the Obligations or of any other guaranty or surety agreement, pledge, assignment or other security for any of the Obligations. No delay in making demand on a Guarantor for satisfaction of its liability hereunder shall prejudice Intuit’s right to enforce such satisfaction. All of Intuit’s rights and remedies shall be cumulative and any failure of Intuit to exercise any right hereunder shall not be construed as a waiver of the right to exercise the same or any other right at any time, and from time to time, thereafter.

     5. The Guarantors hereby waive (i) all defenses to, and all setoffs, counterclaims and claims or recoupment against, the Obligations that may at any time be available to the Borrower and (ii) all other defenses under any applicable law that would, but for this clause (ii), be available to the Guarantors as a defense against or a reduction or limitation of its liabilities and obligations hereunder. This Agreement is a primary obligation of the Guarantors.

     6. Until the Obligations have been paid in full, all rights that the Guarantors may at any time have against the Borrower or any collateral for the Obligations by virtue of their obligation hereunder (including rights of subrogation, exoneration, reimbursement, indemnity and contribution and whether arising under applicable law or otherwise), are hereby expressly subordinated to the prior payment, observance and performance in full of the Obligations. No Guarantor shall enforce any of the rights, or attempt to obtain payment or performance of any of the obligations, subordinated pursuant to this Section 6 until the Obligations have been paid, observed and performed in full except that such prohibition shall not apply to routine acts, such as the giving of notices and the filing of continuation statements, necessary to preserve any such rights. If any amount shall be paid to or recovered by any Guarantor (whether directly or by the way of setoff, recoupment or counterclaim) on account of any right or obligation subordinated pursuant to this Section 6, such amount shall be held in trust by that Guarantor for the benefit of Intuit, not commingled with any of that Guarantor’s other funds, and forthwith paid over to Intuit, in the exact form received, together with any necessary endorsements, to be applied and credited against, or held as security for, the Obligations and the obligations of that Guarantor hereunder.

     7. Each Guarantor makes the following agreements:

     
       (a) The Guarantors will furnish to Intuit (i) within ninety (90) days after the close of each fiscal year: (A) a statement of stockholders’ equity; (B) an income statement of the Guarantors for such fiscal year; (C) a cash flow statement for such fiscal period; and (D) a balance sheet of the Guarantors as of the end of such fiscal year, all in reasonable detail, including all supporting schedules and comments and the accountant’s management letter on internal procedures and controls; the statements and balance sheet to be audited by an independent certified public accountant selected by the Guarantors and reasonably acceptable to Intuit; and accompanied by such accountant’s unqualified opinion; (ii) within forty-five (45) days after the close of each fiscal quarter (other than the fourth quarter) (A) a statement of stockholders’ equity; (B) an income statement of the Guarantors for such fiscal quarter; (C) a cash flow statement for such fiscal quarter; and (D) a balance sheet of the Guarantors as of the end of such fiscal quarter, all in reasonable detail; and (iii) copies of federal and state and local income tax returns previously filed by the Guarantor, within ten (10) days of Intuit’s written request.
     
       (b) Reserved.
     
       (c) In the event Rock Acquisition Corporation desires to form a wholly-owned subsidiary to hold all of the capital stock of the Borrower and Title Source, Inc., Intuit will cooperate with the Guarantors and the Borrower to effect such reorganization so long as it does not adversely affect Intuit’s collateral for the Obligations, and the Guarantors and the Borrower will

78



 

     
  take such actions and execute and deliver such agreements, instruments, certificates and opinions as Intuit shall request, including a guaranty of such new subsidiary, a pledge agreement of such new subsidiary, delivery of certificated securities, certified charter documents, by-laws and votes of directors, opinions of counsel and such other documents as Intuit may request in connection therewith.
     
       (d) The Guarantors shall maintain adequate books, accounts and records with appropriate notations thereon of all assignments to Intuit, and permit Intuit or its representatives at any reasonable time to inspect or examine or audit their books, accounts and records.
     
       (e) Each Guarantor shall comply with all present and future judgments, and with all material laws and regulations applicable to the operation of its business, and all material agreements to which it is subject.
     
       (f) Each Guarantor shall preserve and maintain its existence, rights, franchises and privileges as a corporation in the jurisdiction of its organization, and qualify and remain qualified as a foreign corporation in each jurisdiction where its failure to be so qualified would have a material adverse effect on its business.
     
       (g) At all times, each Guarantor shall maintain in effect, renew and comply with, and cause each of its subsidiaries, if any, to maintain in effect, renew and comply with all the terms and conditions of all consents, licenses, approvals and authorizations necessary under any applicable law or regulation for the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the Security Agreement of the Guarantors to Intuit and to make this Agreement and such other documents legal, valid, binding and enforceable.

     8. Each Guarantor hereby agrees that, without the prior written consent of Intuit which may be withheld in Intuit’s sole discretion, and until all Obligations have been repaid, neither Guarantor will nor will either Guarantor permit any of its subsidiaries to:
