ADVANCING CREDIT NOTE

 

                             ADVANCING CREDIT NOTE

                                 (this "Note")

          FOR VALUE RECEIVED, ON OR BEFORE March 31, 1997 ("Stated Maturity"),
TEXAS GULF COAST BANCORP, INC. ("Borrower"), promises to pay to the order of
Bank at its office at 712 Main Street, Houston, Harris County, Texas, or at such
other location as Bank may designate, in immediately available funds and lawful
money of the United States of America, the sum of THREE MILLION FOUR HUNDRED
THOUSAND AND NO/100THS UNITED STATES DOLLARS (U.S. $3,400,000.00) or the
aggregate unpaid amount of all advances hereunder, whichever is lesser, plus
interest on the unpaid principal balance outstanding from time to time at a rate
per annum equal to the lesser of (i) the Prime Rate (as hereinafter defined)
from time to time in effect (the "Stated Rate") or (ii) the Highest Lawful Rate.
If the Stated Rate at any time exceeds the Highest Lawful Rate, the actual rate
of interest to accrue on the unpaid principal amount of this Note will be
limited to the Highest Lawful Rate, but any subsequent reductions in the Stated
Rate due to reductions in the Prime Rate will not reduce the interest rate
payable upon the unpaid principal amount of this Note below the Highest Lawful
Rate until the total amount of interest accrued on this Note equals the amount
of interest which would have accrued if the Stated Rate had at all times been in
effect.  "Prime Rate" means that rate as determined from time to time by Bank as
being its prime rate, and thereafter entered in the minutes of Bank's Loan and
Discount Committee.  Without notice to Borrower or any other Person, the Prime
Rate shall change automatically from time to time as and in the amount by which
said prime rate shall fluctuate with each such change to be effective as of the
date of each change in such prime rate.  THE PRIME RATE IS A REFERENCE RATE AND
DOES NOT NECESSARILY REPRESENT THE LOWEST OR BEST RATE.  BANK MAY MAKE LOANS AT
RATES OF INTEREST AT, ABOVE OR BELOW THE PRIME RATE.

          This Note is the Note described in Section 1.1 of the Credit Agreement
between Borrower and Texas Commerce Bank National Association ("Bank") dated as
of December 31, 1994 (as amended, restated and supplemented from time to time,
the "Agreement") and sometimes referred to therein as the Note.  Capitalized
terms used in this Note have the meanings used in the Agreement.

          The unpaid principal balance of this Note at any time shall be the
total amounts loaned or advanced by Bank or holder hereof, less the amount of
all payments or prepayments of principal made hereon by or for Borrower.  Absent
manifest error, the records of the Payee or any subsequent holder shall be
conclusive as to amounts owed, both principal and accrued interest, hereunder.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Note and the Agreement and provided
that there is no default, Borrower may use all or any part of the credit
provided for herein at any time before March 31, 1995 (the "Advance Termination
Date") and may borrow and repay but not reborrow hereunder prior to the Advance
Termination Date and there is no limitation on the number of advances made
hereunder so long as the total amount advanced prior to the Advance Termination
Date does not exceed face amount of this Note.

          Accrued interest shall be due and payable quarterly, beginning March
31, 1995, and continuing on each June 30, September 30, December 31, and March
31 thereafter until the Stated Maturity when all accrued and unpaid interest
shall be finally due and payable.  Principal payments of $175,000.00 each (or
the remaining unpaid principal if less) shall be due and payable quarterly
beginning June 30, 1995 and continuing on each September 30, December 31, March
31 and June 30 thereafter until the Stated Maturity when all accrued and unpaid
interest shall be finally due and payable.  All unpaid principal and accrued and
unpaid interest shall be finally due and payable at the Stated Maturity.

          Interest shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days
elapsed and a year comprised of 360 days, unless such calculation would result
in a usurious interest rate, in which case interest will be calculated on the
basis of a 365 or 366 day year, as applicable.

          All past-due principal and, to the extent permitted by applicable law,
interest on this Note, shall, at Bank's option, bear interest at the Highest
Lawful Rate, or if applicable law shall not

                                    Page 1

provide for a maximum nonusurious rate of interest, at a rate per annum equal to
eighteen percent (18%).

          The unpaid principal balance of this Note at any time shall be the
total amounts advanced by Bank, less the amount of all payments of principal.
Absent manifest error, the records of Bank shall be conclusive as to amounts
owed.  Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, Borrower may use
all or any part of the credit provided for herein at any time before the
Termination Date.

          Time is of the essence.  Borrower may at any time pay the full amount
or any part of this Note without the payment of any premium or fee.  Any
prepayment shall be in the amount of U.S. $10,000.00, or an integral multiple
thereof.  At Bank's sole option, all payments may be applied to accrued
interest, to principal, or to both.

          If any Event of Default occurs, then Bank may exercise any and all
rights and remedies under the Loan Documents, at law, in equity or otherwise.

          Each and all Obligors severally waive notice, demand, presentment for
payment, notice of nonpayment, notice of intent to accelerate, notice of
acceleration, protest, notice of protest, and the filing of suit and diligence
in collecting this Note and all other demands and notices, and consent and agree
that their liabilities and obligations shall not be released or discharged by
any or all of the following, whether with or without notice to them or any of
them, and whether before or after the stated maturity hereof:  (i) extensions of
the time of payment; (ii) renewals; (iii) acceptances of partial payments; (iv)
releases or substitutions of any collateral or any obligor; and (v) failure, if
any, to perfect or maintain perfection of any security interest in any
collateral.  Each Obligor agrees that acceptance of any partial payment shall
not constitute a waiver.

          Bank and any subsequent owner or holder hereof reserves the right, in
its sole discretion, without notice to Borrower, to sell participations or
assign its interest or both, in all or any part of this Note.  For purposes of
this Note, any assignee or subsequent holder of this Note will be considered the
"Bank," and each successor to Borrower will be considered the "Borrower."

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, Borrower has executed this Note effective as of the
Effective Date.

GOVERNING LAW ARBITRATION 7.3  (a) UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED THEREIN, EACH LOAN
DOCUMENT IS GOVERNED BY TEXAS LAWS AND THE APPLICABLE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES
OF AMERICA.  To the maximum extent permitted by law, any controversy or claim
arising out of or relating to the Loans or any Loan Document, but not limited to
any claim based on or arising from an alleged tort or an alleged breach of any

the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA Rules") and pursuant to Title 9
of the United States Code, or if Title 9 does not apply, the Texas General
Arbitration Act.  In any arbitration proceeding (i) all statutes of limitations
which would otherwise be applicable shall apply, and (ii) the proceeding shall
be conducted in the city in which the office of Bank originating the Loans is
located, by a single arbitrator if the amount in controversy is $1 million or
less, or by a panel of three arbitrators if the amount in controversy (including
but not limited to all charges, principal, interest fees and expenses) is over
$1 million.  Arbitrators are empowered to resolve any controversy by summary
rulings substantially similar to summary judgments and motions to dismiss.
Arbitrators may order discovery conducted in accordance with the Federal Rules
of Civil Procedures.  All arbitrators will be selected by the process of
appointment from a panel, pursuant to the AAA Rules.  Any award rendered in the
arbitration proceeding will be final and binding, and judgment upon any such
award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

(b) If any party to the Loan or Loan Documents files a proceeding in any court
to resolve any controversy or claim, such action will not constitute a waiver of
the right of such party or a bar to the right of any other party to seek
arbitration under the provisions of this Section or that of any other claim or
controversy, and the court shall, upon motion of any party to the proceeding,
direct that the controversy or claim be arbitrated in accordance with this
Section.

(c) No provision of, or the exercise of any rights under, this Section shall
limit or impair the right of any party to the Loan Documents before, during or
after any arbitration proceeding to: (i) exercise self-help remedies including
but not limited to setoff or repossession; (ii) foreclose any Lien on or
security interest in any Collateral; or (iii) obtain relief from a court of
competent jurisdiction to prevent the dissipation, damage, destruction,
transfer, hypothecation, pledging or concealment of assets or Collateral
including, but not limited to attachments, garnishments, sequestrations,
appointments of receivers, injunctions or other relief to preserve the status
quo.

(d) To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law and the AAA Rules, neither
Bank or any Obligor or any Affiliate, officer, director, employee, attorney, or
agent of either shall have any liability with respect to, and Bank and each
Obligor waives, releases, and agrees not to sue any of them upon, any claim for
any special, indirect, incidental and consequential damages suffered or incurred
by such Person in connection with arising out of, or in any way related to, this
Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents.  Each of Bank and each Obligor
waives, releases, and agrees not to sue each other or any of their Affiliates,
officers, directors, employees, attorneys, or agents for punitive damages in
respect of any claim in connection with, arising out of, or in any way related
to, this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, or any of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents.
Nothing contained herein, however, shall be construed as a waiver of any
Obligor's or the Bank's right to compel arbitration of disputes pursuant to
subparagraphs (a) and (b), above.

(e) Nothing herein shall be considered a waiver of the right or protections
afforded Bank by 12 U.S.C. 91, Texas Banking Code Art. 342.609 or any similar
statute.

(f) Each party agrees that any other party may proceed against any other liable
Person, jointly or severally, or against one or more of them, less than all,
without impairing rights against any other liable Persons.  A party shall not be
required to join the principal Obligor or any other liable Persons (e.g.,
sureties or guarantors) in any proceeding against any Person.  A party may
release or settle with one or more liable Persons as the party deems fit without
releasing or impairing right to proceed against any Persons not so released.

SURVIVAL PARTIES BOUND; TERM OF AGREEMENT 7.4  All representations, warranties,
covenants and agreements made by or on behalf of Borrower in connection with the
Loan Documents will survive the execution and delivery of the Loan Documents,

will benefit the successors and assigns of the Bank provided that Bank's
agreement to make Loans to Borrower will not inure to the benefit of any

Credit Agreement        December 31, 1994        Texas Gulf Coast Bancorp, Inc.

DOCUMENTARY MATTERS 7.5  This Agreement may be executed in several identical
counterparts, on separate counterparts; each counterpart will constitute an
original instrument, and all separate counterparts will constitute but one and
the same instrument.  The headings and captions in the Loan Documents have been
included solely for convenience and should not be considered in construing the
Loan Documents.  If any provision of any Loan Document is invalid, illegal or
unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law, the remaining provisions
will remain effective.  The Loans and all other obligations and indebtedness of
Borrower to Bank are entitled to the benefit of the Loan Documents.

EXPENSES 7.6  Any provision to the contrary notwithstanding, and whether or not
the transaction contemplated by this Agreement are consummated, Borrower agrees
to pay on demand all out-of-pocket expenses (including, without limitation, the
fee and expenses of counsel for Bank) in connection with the negotiation,
preparation, execution, filing, recording, modification, supplementing and
waiver of the Loan Documents and the making, servicing and collection of the
Loans.  Borrower agrees to pay Bank's standard Documentation Preparation and
Processing Fee for preparation, negotiation and handling of this Agreement.  The
obligations of the Borrower under this and the following section will survive
the termination of this Agreement.

INDEMNIFICATION 7.7  THE BORROWER AGREES TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD BANK
HARMLESS FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL LOSS, LIABILITY, OBLIGATION, DAMAGE,
PENALTY, JUDGMENT, CLAIM, DEFICIENCY AND EXPENSE (INCLUDING INTEREST, PENALTIES,
ATTORNEYS' FEES AND AMOUNTS PAID IN SETTLEMENT) TO WHICH THE BANK MAY BECOME
SUBJECT ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON THE LOAN DOCUMENTS, OR ANY LOAN, INCLUDING
THAT RESULTING FROM BANK'S OWN NEGLIGENCE, EXCEPT AND TO THE EXTENT CAUSED BY
BANK'S GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT.

NATURE OF OBLIGATIONS 7.8  If more than one Borrower executes this Agreement,
all of the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements of Borrower
shall be joint and several obligations of all Borrowers.

USURY NOT INTENDED 7.9  Borrower and Bank intend to conform strictly to
applicable usury laws.  Therefore, the total amount of interest (as defined
under applicable law) contracted for, charged or collected under this Agreement
or any other Loan Document will never exceed the Highest Lawful Rate.  If Bank
contracts for, charges or receives any excess interest, it will be deemed a
mistake.  Bank will automatically reform the Loan Document or change to conform
to applicable law, and if excess interest has been received, Bank will either
refund the excess to Borrower or credit the excess on any unpaid principal
amount of the Note or any other Loan Document.  All amounts constituting
interest will be spread throughout the full term of the Loan Document or
applicable Note in determining whether interest exceeds lawful amounts.

NO COURSE OR DEALING 7.10  NO COURSE OF DEALING BY BORROWER WITH BANK, NO COURSE

(k) If Secured Party should at any time be of the opinion that the Collateral is not sufficient or has declined or may decline in value, or should a decline in the value of the Collateral cause any indebtedness secured hereby to be in violation of 12 USC 84 or any regulation implementing such law, or should Secured Party deem payment of Debtor's obligations to Secured Party to be insecure, then Secured Party may call for additional Collateral satisfactory to Secured Party, and Debtor promises to furnish such additional security forthwith, but in no event later than five days from the date Secured Party requests such additional Collateral. The call for additional security may be oral or by telegram or by United States Postal Service addressed to the address of Debtor shown at the beginning of this Security Agreement. 5.2 Subject to the restrictions in Section III of this Security Agreement, Debtor agrees that, if Debtor fails to perform any act or to take any action which hereunder Debtor is required to perform or take, or to pay any money which hereunder Debtor is required to pay, Secured Party, in Debtor's name or in its own name, may but shall not be obligated to perform or cause to be performed such act or take such action or pay such money, and any expenses so incurred by Secured Party, and any money so paid by Secured Party, shall be a demand obligation owing by Debtor to Secured Party and Secured Party, upon making such payment, shall be subrogated to all of the rights of the person, corporation or body politic receiving such payment. Any amounts due and owing by Debtor to Secured Party pursuant to this Security Agreement shall bear interest from the date such amount becomes due until paid at the Past Due Rate and shall be a part of the secured indebtedness and shall be secured by this Security Agreement and by any other instrument securing the secured indebtedness. SECTION VI. VOTING RIGHTS AND DIVIDENDS. Unless and until an Event of Default, as hereinafter defined, shall have occurred, Debtor shall be entitled to exercise all voting and consensual powers and rights pertaining to the Collateral or any part thereof for all purposes not inconsistent with the terms of this Security Agreement and shall be entitled to receive and retain all dividends (other than stock or liquidating dividends) on the Collateral or any part thereof, provided that all dividends in stock or property representing stock, and all subscription, warrants or any other rights or options issued in connection with the Collateral, and all liquidating dividends or distributions or return of capital upon or in respect of the Collateral or any part thereof, or resulting from any split, revision or reclassification of the Collateral or any part thereof, or received in exchange for the Collateral or any part thereof as a result of a merger, consolidation or otherwise, shall be paid or transferred directly to Secured Party, or if paid to or received by Debtor, shall be, immediately upon receipt thereof, paid over, transferred and delivered to Secured Party and shall be Collateral pledged under and subject to the terms of this Security Agreement. SECTION VII. EVENTS OF DEFAULT. Debtor shall be in default under this Security Agreement upon the happening of any of the following events or conditions, herein called an "Event of Default": (a) Debtor's failure to pay when due any of the secured indebtedness; or (b) Default by Debtor in the punctual performance of any of the obligations, covenants, terms or provisions contained or referred to in this Security Agreement or in any indebtedness secured hereby; or (c) any warranty or representation or statement contained in this Agreement or made or furnished to Secured Party by or on behalf of Debtor in connection with this Security Agreement or to induce Secured Party to make a loan to Debtor shall prove to be false or misleading in any respect when made or furnished; or (d) loss, theft, substantial damage, destruction, sale or encumbrance of or to any of the Collateral, or the making of any levy, seizure or attachment thereof or thereon; or Page 3 of 7 (e) Debtor's death, dissolution, termination of existence, insolvency or business failure; the failure of Debtor or of any guarantor or surety for Debtor generally to pay its debts as they become due; the appointment of a receiver, trustee custodian or liquidator of all or any part of the property of Debtor; an assignment for the benefit of creditors of Debtor; the calling of a meeting of creditors of Debtor; or the commencement of any proceeding under any bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization laws by or against Debtor or any guarantor or surety for Debtor; or (f) any statement of the financial condition of Debtor or of any guarantor, comaker, surety or endorser of any liability of Debtor to Secured Party submitted to Secured Party by Debtor or any such guarantor, surety or endorser proves to be false or misleading in any respect; or (g) any guarantor, comaker, surety or endorser for Debtor defaults in any obligation or liability to Secured Party; or (h) any adverse material change shall occur in the assets, liabilities, financial condition, business operations, affairs or circumstances of Debtor. SECTION VIII. REMEDIES IN EVENT OF DEFAULT. 8.1 Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, or if Secured Party shall deem payment of Debtor's obligations to Secured Party to be insecure, and at any time thereafter, Secured Party shall have the option of declaring, without notice to any person, all indebtedness secured hereby; principal and accrued interest, to be immediately due and payable. 8.2 Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, or if Secured Party shall deem payment of Debtor's obligations to Secured Party to be insure, and at any time thereafter, Secured Party may without notice, except as thereinafter provided, sell the Collateral or any part thereof at public or private sale or at any broker's board or on any securities exchange for cash, upon credit, or for future delivery, and at such price or prices as Secured Party may deem best, and Secured Party may be the purchaser of any and all of the Collateral so sold and may apply upon the purchase price therefor any indebtedness secured hereby or any part thereof, and thereafter hold the same absolutely free from any right or claim of whatsoever kind. Secured Party is authorized at any such sale, if Secured Party deems it advisable so to do, to restrict the prospective bidders or purchasers to persons who will represent and agree that they are purchasing the Collateral for their own account for investment and not with a view to the distribution or resale of any of the Collateral. Upon any such sale, Secured Party shall have the right to deliver, assign and transfer to the purchaser thereof the Collateral so sold. Each purchaser at any such sale shall hold the property sold absolutely free from any claim or right of whatsoever kind, including any equity or right of redemption, stay or appraisal which Debtor has or may have under any rule of law or statute now existing or hereafter adopted. Secured Party shall give Debtor ten (10) days written notice mailed to Debtor at the address set forth herein (which shall satisfy any requirement of notice or reasonable notice in any applicable statute) of Secured Party's intention to make any such public or private sale. Such notice, in case of public sale, shall state the time and place fixed for such sale, and in case of sale at broker's board or on a securities exchange, shall state the board or exchange at which such sale is to be made and the day on which the Collateral or that portion thereof so being sold will first be offered for sale at such board or exchange. Any such public sale shall be held at such time or times within the ordinary business hours and at such place or places as Secured Party may fix in the notice of such sale. At any sale, the Collateral may be sold in one lot as an entirety or in separate parcels as Secured Party may determine. Secured Party shall not be obligated to make any sale pursuant to any such notice. Secured Party may, without notice or publication, adjourn any public or private sale or cause the same to be adjourned from time to time by announcement at any time and place fixed for the sale, and such sale may be made at any time or place to which the same may be so adjourned. In case of any sale of all or any part of the Collateral on credit or for future delivery, the Collateral so sold may be retained by Secured Party until the selling price is paid by the purchaser thereof, but Secured Party shall incur no liability in case of the failure of such purchaser to take up and pay for the Collateral so sold, and in case of any such failure, such Collateral may again be sold upon like notice. Each and every method of disposition described in this Section shall constitute disposition in a commercially reasonable manner. Debtor, subject to the restrictions in Section III of this Security Agreement, shall remain liable for any deficiency. 8.3 Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, or if Secured Party shall deem payment of Debtor's obligations to Secured Party to be insecure, and at any time thereafter, Secured Party shall have all the rights of a secured party after default under the Uniform Commercial Code of Texas, and in conjunction with, in addition to or in substitution for those rights and remedies and the rights and remedies provided for herein: (a) Written notice mailed to Debtor as provided herein ten (10) days prior to the date of public sale of the Collateral or prior to the date after which private sale of the Collateral will be made shall constitute reasonable notice; and (b) It shall not be necessary that the Collateral or any part thereof be present at the location of such sale; and (c) Prior to application of proceeds of disposition of the Collateral to the secured indebtedness, such proceeds shall be applied, subject to the restrictions in Section III of this Security Agreement, to the reasonable expenses of retaking, holding, preparing for sale or lease, selling, leasing and the like and the attorneys' fees and legal expenses incurred by Secured Party, Debtor, subject to the restrictions in Section III of this Security Agreement, to remain liable for any deficiency; and (d) The sale by Secured Party of less than the whole of the Collateral shall not exhaust the rights of Secured Party hereunder, and Secured Party is specifically empowered to make successive sale or sales hereunder until the whole of the Collateral shall be sold; and, if the proceeds of such sale of less than the whole of the Collateral shall be less than the aggregate of the indebtedness secured hereby, this Security Agreement and the security interest created hereby shall remain in full force and effect as to the unsold portion of the Collateral just as though no sale had been made; and (e) In the event any sale hereunder is not completed or is defective in the opinion of Secured Party, such sale shall not exhaust the rights of Secured Party hereunder and Secured Party shall have the right to cause a subsequent sale or sales to be made hereunder; and (f) Any and all statements of fact or other recitals made in any bill of sale or assignment or other instrument evidencing any foreclosure sale hereunder as to nonpayment of the indebtedness or as to the occurrence of any default, or as to Secured Party having declared all of such indebtedness to be due and payable, or as to notice of time, place and terms of sale and the properties to be sold having been duly given, as to any other act or thing having been duly done by Secured Party, shall be taken as prima facie evidence of the truth of the facts so stated and recited; and Page 4 of 7 (g) Secured Party may appoint or delegate any one or more persons as agent to perform any act or acts necessary or incident to any sale held by Secured Party, including the sending of notices and the conduct of sale but in the name and on behalf of Secured Party. 8.4 All remedies herein expressly provided for are cumulative of any and all other remedies existing at law or in equity and are cumulative of any and all other remedies provided for in any other instrument securing the payment of the secured indebtedness, or any part thereof, or otherwise benefiting Secured Party, and the resort to any remedy provided for hereunder or under any such other instrument or provided for by law shall not prevent the concurrent or subsequent employment of any other appropriate remedy or remedies. 8.5 Secured Party may resort to any security given by this Security Agreement or to any other security now existing or hereafter given to secure the payment of the secured indebtedness, in whole or in part, and in such portions and in such order as may seem best to Secured Party in its sole and uncontrolled discretion, and any such action shall not be considered as a waiver of any of the rights, benefits or security interests evidenced by this Security Agreement. 8.6 Secured Party may at any time cause any or all of the Collateral to be transferred into its name or into the name or names of any nominee or nominees of Secured Party. 8.7 To the full extent Debtor may do so, Debtor agrees that Debtor will not at any time insist upon, plead, claim or take the benefit or advantage of any law now or hereafter in force provided for any appraisement, valuation, stay, extension or redemption, and Debtor, for Debtor, Debtor's heirs, devisees, personal representatives, receivers, trustees, successors and assigns, and for any and all persons ever claim any interest in the Collateral, to the extent permitted by law, hereby waives and releases all rights of redemption, valuation, appraisement, stay of execution, notice of intention to mature or declare due the whole of the secured indebtedness, notice of election to mature or declare due the whole of the secure indebtedness, and all rights to a marshaling of the assets of Debtor, including the Collateral, or to a sale in inverse order of alienation in the event of foreclosure of the security interest hereby created. If this Security Agreement is governed by any of the Chapters, nothing herein shall be construed to waive any right accruing to Debtor under such Chapter. SECTION IX. ADDITIONAL AGREEMENTS. 9.1 If all of the secured indebtedness be paid as the same becomes due and payable, and if all of the covenants, warranties, undertakings and agreements made in this Security Agreement are kept and performed, then and in that event only, all rights under this Security Agreement shall terminate and the Collateral shall become wholly clear of the security interest evidenced hereby, and such security interest shall be released by Secured Party in due form and, subject to the restrictions in Section III of this Security Agreement, at Debtor's cost. 9.2 Secured Party may waive any default without waiving any other prior or subsequent default. Secured Party may remedy any default without waiving the default remedied. The failure by Secured Party to exercise any right, power or remedy upon any default shall not be construed as a waiver of such default or as a waiver of the right to exercise any such right, power or remedy at a later date. No single or partial exercise by Secured Party of any right, power or remedy hereunder shall exhaust the same or shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof, and every such right, power or remedy hereunder may be exercised at any time and from time to time. No modification or waiver of any provision hereof nor consent to any departure by Debtor therefrom shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by Secured Party and then such waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instances, for the purpose of which given and to the extent therein specified. No notice to nor demand on Debtor in any case shall of itself entitle Debtor to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances. Acceptance by Secured Party of any payment in an amount less than the amount then due on any secured indebtedness shall be deemed an acceptance on account only and shall not in any way affect the existence of a default hereunder. 9.3 Secured Party may at any time and from time to time in writing (a) waive compliance by Debtor with any covenant herein made by Debtor to the extent and the manner specified in such writing; (b) consent to Debtor's doing any act which hereunder Debtor is prohibited from doing, or consent to Debtor's failing to do any act which hereunder Debtor is required to do, to the extent and in the manner specified in such writing; (c) release any part of the Collateral, or any interest therein, from the security interest of this Security Agreement; or (d) release any party liable, either directly or indirectly, for the secured indebtedness or for any covenant herein or in any other instrument now or hereafter securing the payment of the secured indebtedness. No such act shall in any way impair the rights of Secured Party hereunder, or impair or release the liability of any party except to the extent specifically agreed to by Secured Party in such writing. 9.4 The security interest and other rights of Secured Party hereunder shall not be impaired by any indulgence, moratorium or release granted by Secured Party, including but not limited to (a) any renewal, extension or modification which Secured Party may grant with respect to any secured indebtedness; (b) any surrender, compromise, release, renewal, extension, exchange or substitution which Secured Party may grant in respect of any item of the Collateral, or any part thereof or any interest therein; or (c) any release or indulgence granted to any indorser, guarantor or surety of any secured indebtedness. 9.5 A carbon, photographic or other reproduction of this Security Agreement or of any financing statement relating to this Security Agreement shall be sufficient as a financing statement. 9.6 Debtor will cause all financing statements and confirmation statements relating hereto to be recorded, filed, re-recorded and refiled in such manner and in such places as Secured Party may reasonably request, and, subject to the restrictions in Section III of this Security Agreement, will pay all such recording, filing, re-recording and refiling taxes, fees and other charges. 9.7 In the event the ownership of the Collateral or any part thereof becomes vested in a person other than Debtor, Secured Party may, without notice to Debtor, deal with such person with reference to this Security Agreement and to the indebtedness secured hereby in the same manner as with Debtor, without in any way vitiating or discharging Debtor's liability hereunder or for the payment of the indebtedness secured hereby. No sale of the Collateral, no forbearance on the part of Secured Party and no extension of the time for the payment of the indebtedness secured hereby given by Secured Party shall operate to release, discharge, modify, change or affect, in whole or in part, the liability of Debtor hereunder or the liability of any other person hereunder or for the payment of the indebtedness secured hereby, except as agreed in writing by Secured Party. 9.8 If any part of the secured indebtedness cannot be lawfully secured by this Security Agreement, or if any part of the Collateral cannot be lawfully subject to the security interest hereof to the full extent of such indebtedness, then all payments Page 5 of 7 made shall be applied on said indebtedness first if discharge of that portion thereof which is not secured by this Security Agreement. 9.9 Secured Party may assign this Security Agreement so that the assignee shall be entitled to the rights and remedies of Secured Party hereunder. 9.10 Any notice, request, demand or other communication required or permitted hereunder, or under any note, guaranty, loan agreement or other instrument securing the payment of the secured indebtedness (unless otherwise expressly provided therein) shall be given in writing by delivering same in person to the intended addressee, or by United States Postal Service, postage prepaid, registered or certified mail, return receipt requested or by prepaid telegram (provided that such telegram is confirmed by mail in the manner previously described), sent to the intended addressee at the address shown in this Agreement, or to such different address as the addressee shall have designated by written notice sent in accordance herewith and actually received by the other party at least ten (10) days in advance of the date upon which such change of address shall be effective. 9.11 This Security Agreement shall be binding upon Debtor, and the heirs, devisees, personal representatives, receivers, trustees, successors and assigns of Debtor, including all successors in interest of Debtor in and to all or any part of the Collateral, and shall inure to the benefit of Secured Party and the successors and assigns of Secured Party. 9.12 Secured Party in its discretion may, whether or not any of the indebtedness secured hereby be due, in its name or in the name of Debtor or otherwise, demand, sue for, collect or receive any money or other property at any time payable or receivable on account of or in exchange for, or make any compromise or settlement deemed desirable with respect to, any of the Collateral, but Secured Party shall be under no obligation so to do. 9.13 Whenever possible, each provision of this Security Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law. A determination that any provision of this Security Agreement is unenforceable or invalid shall not affect the enforceability or validity of any other provision, and any determination that the application of any provision of this Security Agreement to any person or circumstance is illegal or unenforceable shall not affect the enforceability or validity of such provision as it may apply to any other persons or circumstances. 9.14 Secured Party may, by any employee or employees it designates, execute, sign, indorse, transfer or deliver in the name of Debtor, notes, checks, drafts or other instruments for the payment of money and receipts or any other document necessary to evidence, perfect and realize upon the security interests and obligations of this Security Agreement. 9.15 Secured Party's duty with reference to the Collateral shall be solely to use reasonable care in the custody and preservation of the Collateral in Secured Party's possession. Secured Party shall not be responsible in any way for any depreciation in the value of the Collateral, nor shall any duty or responsibility whatsoever rest upon Secured Party to take necessary steps to preserve rights against prior parties or to enforce collection of the Collateral by legal proceedings or otherwise, the sole duty of the Secured Party, its successors and assigns, being to receive collections, remittances and payments on such Collateral as and when made. In the event Debtor instructs Secured Party, in writing or orally, to deliver any or all of the Collateral to a broker or other third person, and Secured Party agrees to do so, the following conditions shall be conclusively deemed to be a part of secured party's agreement, whether or not they are specifically mentioned to Debtor at the time of such agreement. Secured Party shall assume no responsibility for checking the genuineness or authenticity of any person purporting to be a messenger, employee or representative of the broker or other third person to whom Debtor has directed Secured Party to deliver the Collateral, or the genuineness or authenticity of any document or instructions delivered by any such person. Debtor will be considered, by requesting any such delivery, to have assumed all risk of loss as to the Collateral. Secured Party's sole responsibility will be to deliver the Collateral to the person purporting to be the broker or other third person described by Debtor, or a messenger, employee or representative thereof. Secured Party and Debtor hereby expressly agree that the foregoing actions by Secured Party shall constitute reasonable care. 9.16 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if any secured indebtedness shall be indebtedness resulting from an extension of credit to a consumer (as such terms are defined or described in 12 C.F.R. 227, Regulation AA of the Federal Reserve Board) hereinafter referred to as "consumer credit obligation" then the collateral securing any such consumer credit obligation shall not extend to any nonpossessory security interest in household goods which is not a purchase money security interest (as defined in said Regulation AA), and no waiver of any notice herein shall be construed under any circumstances to extend to any waiver of notice which is prohibited by Regulation AA. 9.17 The term "Debtor" as used in this Security Agreement shall be construed as singular or plural to correspond with the number of persons executing this Security Agreement as Debtor. The pronouns used in this Security Agreement are in the masculine gender but shall be construed as feminine or neuter as occasion may require. "Secured Party" and "Debtor" as used in this Security Agreement include the heirs, executors or administrators, successors, representatives, receivers, trustees and assigns of those parties. 9.18 If more than one person executes this Security Agreement as Debtor, their obligations under this Security Agreement shall be joint and several. 9.19 The section headings appearing in this Security Agreement have been inserted for convenience only and shall be given no substantive meaning or significance whatever in construing the terms and provision of this Security Agreement. Terms used in this Security Agreement which are defined in the Texas Uniform Commercial Code are used with the meanings as therein defined. 9.20 This Security Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Texas and the United States of America.
