If Client receives a payment on an Account, Client shall hold such payment in trust for Factor and immediately turn over such payment to Factor.
(b)In the event the Collections for Client Risk Accounts are less than the Purchase Price for such Client Risk Accounts, Client shall be liable for any deficiency and such deficiency shall become part of the Obligations. With respect to Client Risk Accounts, if any item of payment is not honored, or Factor does not receive good funds for any reason, the amount of such item shall be part of the Client Account Balance as if the Collection had not been received and Finance Charges under Section 3.2 shall apply.
(c)The amount of the Purchase Price of any Factor Risk Account which remains unpaid will be deemed collected and will be credited to the Client Account Balance as of the earlier of the following:
(i)the date of the Account’s longest maturity if a proceeding or petition is filed by or against the Account Obligor under any state or federal bankruptcy or insolvency law, or if a receiver or trustee is appointed for the Account Obligor; or
(ii)[ninety (90)] days following the Account’s longest maturity date if such Account remains unpaid as of such date without the occurrence of any of the events specified in clause (i) above.
provided, however, if any Factor Risk Account credited to Client is not paid for any reason other than Credit Risk, Factor has the right to reverse the credit and charge the Client Account Balance accordingly, and such Account is then deemed to be a Client Risk Account.

Client waives any and all claims based on suretyship. If an Account Obligor owes on both Factor Risk Accounts and Client Risk Accounts, Factor may apply any amount received on such Accounts first to any Factor Risk Accounts. As owner and assignee of the Accounts and all proceeds thereof, upon written notice by Factor to Client, Client shall, at Client’s expense, comply with Factor’s instructions with respect to any and all returned, rejected, reclaimed or repossessed inventory which shall be in compliance with Factor’s rights under this Agreement.

Factor shall prepare and send to Client, after the close of business for each Reconciliation Period, an accounting of the transactions for that Reconciliation Period, including the amount of the Purchase Price for all Accounts, amounts held for Reserve, Factoring Fees, Finance Charges, Repurchase Amounts and any other adjustments. The accounting shall be deemed correct and conclusive unless Client makes written objection to Factor within thirty (30) days after Factor mails or posts electronically such accounting to Client.
3.6 Payment to Client. Provided that no Event of Default exists and no event or condition that with notice, lapse of time or otherwise would constitute an Event of Default exists, Factor shall pay to Client by check, or such other means as agreed upon by the parties, to be sent upon each Reconciliation Date, provided such date is a Business Day and if not then upon the next Business Day, immediately following each Reconciliation Date, the amount, if any, which Factor owes to Client at the end of the Reconciliation Period according to the accounting prepared by Factor in accordance with Section 3.5 of this Agreement (“Balance Payment”). The Balance Payment shall be an amount equal to:
(a)the Reserve as of the beginning of that Reconciliation Period PLUS the Reserve amount for each Account purchased during that Reconciliation Period,

Section 4. Claims and Charge Backs.
(a)Client shall notify Factor promptly of any matter affecting the value, enforceability or collectability of any Account and of all Customer Claims. Factor and Client agree to cooperate in adjustment of Customer Claims, provided that Factor shall have the sole right to adjust Customer Claims on Factor Risk Accounts directly with Account Obligors, upon such terms as Factor determines in its sole discretion.
(b)Factor may at any time charge back to the Client Account Balance the amount of: (i) any Factor Risk Account which is not paid in full when due for any reason other than Credit Risk; (ii) any Factor Risk Account which is not paid in full when due because of an act of God, civil strife, or war; (iii) anticipation (interest) deducted by an Account Obligor on any Account; (iv) Customer Claims; (v) any Client Risk Account which is not paid in full when due; and (vi) any Account for which there is a breach of any representation or warranty.
