Amounts arising from the difference between the Determining Interest and the Paid Interest (the "Interest Gap") shall join the Loan principal (at a rate of 97%), payable on the third quarter of 2021. The deferral of payment of the Interest Gap shall not constitute a breach of the Agreement andor cause immediate repayment. 

·      A "Cash Sweep" mechanism has been determined for the payment of the Loan principal.
