At the time of the termination of the Promissory Note, no amounts were outstanding thereunder. Pursuant to the Termination Agreement, (1) neither party shall have any further rights or obligations under the Revolving Credit Loan Agreement or the Promissory Note, and (2) the Revolving Credit Loan Agreement and the Promissory Note shall have no further force or effect.
