– By an agreement (hereinafter called “THE FINANCE CONTRACT”) dated 7 June 1999 between THE BANK and THE BORROWER, THE BANK has agreed to establish in favour of THE BORROWER a credit in an amount equivalent to EUR 175 000 000 (one hundred and seventy five million euro).

In particular, THE BANK is not bound to prove that it has taken any action against THE BORROWER; it is not obliged, prior to the enforcement of this guarantee, to realize securities or to enforce any other security that THE BORROWER or a third party may have constituted.
3.03 The payment by THE GUARANTOR shall fall due on the fifteenth day following that on which demand is made.
3.04 In the event of THE BANK making demand, THE GUARANTOR shall have the right to discharge immediately, under the conditions set out in THE FINANCE CONTRACT, all the monetary obligations of THE BORROWER under THE FINANCE CONTRACT which are still outstanding at the time of such discharge.

THE BANK shall have the right to grant to THE BORROWER extensions of time of up to three months in respect of each repayment of principal or payment of interest and any other incidental expenses as it sees fit, without being bound to submit its decision to THE GUARANTOR.
Any modifications in THE FINANCE CONTRACT other than those referred to in the above paragraphs of this Article 6 shall be submitted for approval to THE GUARANTOR. The latter may refuse its approval only if the proposed modifications are likely to be prejudicial to it in its capacity as guarantor.
ARTICLE 7
Taxes, Charges and Expenses

3. člen
Uveljavitev garancije
3.01 Zahtevek na podlagi te pogodbe je mogoče dati, kakor hitro POSOJILOJEMALEC ne izpolni vseh obveznosti ali dela obveznosti, za katere velja garancija v skladu z 2. členom te pogodbe.
3.02 GARANT se nepreklicno odreka vsakršnemu ugovoru ali zakonskim izjemam v zvezi s popolnim ali delnim uveljavljanjem te garancije. Obvezuje se, da bo na pisno ali telegramsko zahtevo BANKE izpolnjeval svoje obveznosti ob vsakem zahtevku in plačeval zapadle zneske brez vsakršnih omejitev, zadrževanj ali pogojev, ne da bi bilo BANKI treba priskrbeti kaka druga posebna dokazila v podporo njenemu zahtevku razen razloga za zahtevek, ki izhaja iz te garancije.

BANKA ima pravico, da POSOJILOJEMALCU na njej ustrezen način odobri do trimesečno podaljšanje roka za vsako odplačilo glavnice ali plačilo obresti in drugih nepredvidenih stroškov, ne da bi bila dolžna tako svojo odločitev predložiti GARANTU.
