C. Representations and Warranties. GPM hereby represents and warrants that no default or event of default, however denominated, has occurred and is continuing, or would exist with notice or the lapse of time or both, under any of the M&T Loan Documents, and that all representations and warranties herein and in the other M&T Loan Documents are true and correct in all material respects.

IT IS MUTUALLY AGREED by and between the parties hereto that this Amendment shall become a part of the Agreement by reference and that nothing herein contained shall impair the security now held for said indebtedness, nor shall waive, annul, vary or affect any provision, condition, covenant or agreement contained in the Agreement, except as herein amended, nor affect or impair any rights, powers or remedies under the Agreement, as hereby amended.

GPM promises and agrees to pay and perform all of the requirements, conditions and obligations under the terms of the M&T Loan Documents and the Agreement, as hereby modified and amended, said documents being hereby ratified and affirmed.

GPM expressly agrees that the M&T Loan Documents and the Agreement are in full force and effect and that GPM has no right to setoff, counterclaim or defense to the payment thereof. Any reference contained in the Agreement, as amended herein, or in any of the M&T Loan Documents to the Agreement shall hereinafter be deemed to be a reference to such document as amended hereby.
