|(a)||failure to ensure its Security is continuously perfected in accordance with the PPSA; or|
|(b)||financing statement in relation to that Personal Property being held to be seriously misleading,|
the other Secured Party may, by written notice, exclude that Personal Property from the application of this Deed. After such exclusion, the priority position of each Secured Party in relation to that Personal Property shall be determined in accordance with the PPSA and nothing in these subordination and priority arrangements will oblige that other Secured Party to do or suffer anything inconsistent with that other Secured Party’s priority position outside of these arrangements where that priority position is or would be more favourable to that other Secured Party than under these arrangements.
|2.4||Possession: If, at any time, a Secured Party has possession of any Personal Property, for the purposes of perfection and/or priority in relation to that Secured Party’s security interest, that Secured Party will not release or give up that possession to any person other than the Senior Creditor except as, but only to the extent, required:|
|(a)||by law or order of a court of competent jurisdiction or with the written consent of the other Secured Party; or|
|(b)||to enforce its security (provided that such enforcement is permitted by, and conducted in accordance with the priority principles set out in, this Deed); or|

|(b)||the Junior Security will have second priority for all moneys from time to time secured or intended to be secured under it; and|
|(c)||the surplus (if any) shall, subject to the rights of any subsequent security holder, be paid to the Debtor or as it shall direct.|
|4.1||Priority instruments: The Junior Creditor will, if required by the Senior Creditor, immediately sign and consent to the registration in the relevant register of a priority instrument reflecting the priority in respect of any Other Property as set out in this Deed.|

|(a)||any rule of law or equity to the contrary (including, but not limited to, any application of the rule in Clayton’s Case (1816) 1 Mer. 529 or the rule in Hopkinson v Rolt (1861) 9 H.L. Case. 514);|
|(b)||the dates of the Securities, their order of registration or the date upon which a Secured Party may receive notice of the other Secured Party’s Security;|

|(a)||Any provision in the Junior Facility Agreement or any Security (including, without limitation, any clause relating to section 92 of the Property Law Act 2007) or any other agreement or arrangement entered into before or after the date of this Deed which is inconsistent with these subordination and priority arrangements, will, for so long as this Deed is in effect, be superseded or varied to the extent necessary to give full effect to these arrangements.|
|(b)||The Junior Creditor agrees that the failure by the Debtor to comply with any obligation or undertaking of the Debtor in a Junior Document or any other agreement or arrangement entered into before or after the date of this Deed which is restricted or subordinated pursuant to this Deed shall not constitute a Junior Event of Default, provided that nothing in this clause 5.2(b) will prevent the Junior Creditor from taking the action permitted under clause 6.5.|

Any such amount paid, or the value of any such assets held, by the Junior Creditor on account of being trustee for the benefit of the Senior Creditor and paid over to the Senior Creditor shall be treated, for the purposes of the obligations of the Debtor in respect of the Junior Debt, as if it had not been paid or turned over by the Debtor.

|6.10||Exception - capitalisation of interest and fees: Nothing in this Deed is intended to prevent the Junior Creditor from charging interest or fees on or in connection with the Junior Debt in accordance with the terms of the Junior Documents (as at the date of this Deed), provided that such interest or fees are capitalised to the Junior Debt.|

|13.1||Amendments: This Deed may from time to time be amended if all parties agree in writing.|
|13.2||Remedies and waivers: Time is of the essence for this Deed but no failure to exercise, and no delay in exercising, any right or remedy of the Senior Creditor under this Deed is to operate as a waiver of such right or remedy, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right or remedy preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any right or remedy. No waiver by the Senior Creditor of any rights or remedies under this Deed is to be effective unless it is in writing signed by the Senior Creditor.|
|13.3||Partial invalidity: The illegality, invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Deed under any law will not affect the legality, validity or enforceability of that provision under any other law or the legality, validity or enforceability of any other provision.|
|13.4||Expiry: With effect from the Termination Date, this Deed shall terminate and the parties shall have no further obligations hereunder.|
|13.5||Reinstatement: If any payment received or recovered by a Secured Party in respect of its Secured Debt is avoided by law or has to be refunded to any liquidator or other person, that payment will be deemed not to have discharged the Senior Debt or the Junior Debt (as the context requires) in respect of which the payment was received or recovered and accordingly, if the Termination Date has occurred in such circumstances then it will be deemed not to have occurred.|
|13.6||Third party payments: If the Senior Creditor receives any amount otherwise than from the Debtor, the Senior Debt will not be deemed reduced by that amount until and except to the extent that it is applied towards the Senior Debt.|
|13.7||Disclosure of information: Each Secured Party may disclose to the other such information about the Debtor, its Security, the facilities being provided to the Debtor and any related information as that Secured Party thinks fit.|
|13.8||No requirement to enforce: A Secured Party may refrain from enforcing its Security as long as that Secured Party sees fit. The Junior Creditor waives any right it may have of first requiring the Senior Creditor (or any party on its behalf) to proceed against or enforce any other right or security or claim payment from any person before claiming the benefit of this Deed.|
|13.9||Senior Creditor’s discretion: The Senior Creditor (or any person on its behalf) may:|

|13.10||Custody of documents: So long as the Senior Documents are in effect, the Senior Creditor will be entitled to hold any title documents, share certificates or similar original documents in respect of any Secured Property in priority to the entitlement of the Junior Creditor. The Senior Creditor has no responsibility to the Junior Creditor in connection with obtaining or maintaining custody of such documents.|
|13.11||Debtor: This Deed is given for the sole benefit of the Secured Parties (or the relevant Secured Party) and does not create any obligation or liability on the part of either Secured Party to the Debtor.|
|(a)||The Debtor agrees to pay on demand all reasonable costs incurred by the Secured Parties in connection with the preparation, negotiation, execution and performance of this Deed, and all waivers under and amendments to this Deed.|
|(b)||The Debtor and the Junior Creditor (as the case may be) agree to pay on demand all costs incurred by the Senior Creditor in connection with the enforcement against the Debtor or the Junior Creditor (as applicable), or (in the case of the Debtor only) review and consideration, of the Senior Creditor’s rights under this Deed. For the avoidance of doubt, the Junior Creditor shall not be liable for any costs and expenses in connection with the enforcement against the Debtor.|
|13.13||Contracts Privity: The parties acknowledge that, in terms of the Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017, this Deed is made for the benefit of and is intended to be enforceable by the Senior Creditor and any receiver appointed by it.|
