At the request of the Lender, [YOUR COMPANY NAME] shall execute, at [YOUR COMPANY NAME]’s expense, every transfer and every document required to be executed to give full force to the undertakings of [YOUR COMPANY NAME] contained in the present Pledge Agreement or which might be useful to confer upon the Lender or any other person appointed by the Lender the ownership of the Debenture.


9. The present Pledge Agreement shall constitute a continuing agreement and shall have effect whenever and so often as any of the Obligations exist.
