The Bank may grant 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. Any such extension of time shall be notified to the Guarantor.
Any modifications in the Finance Contract other than those referred to in the previous two paragraphs of this Article 6 shall be submitted for approval to the Guarantor.

je dogovorjeno naslednje:
Finančna pogodba
1.01 Garant izjavlja, da je dobro seznanjen s pogoji in določili finančne pogodbe, katere izvirnik, tak kot sta ga pogodbenici podpisali, je banka dostavila garantu.
Obveznosti garanta
2.01 Garant kot prvi zavezanec in ne le kot porok v celoti jamči za popolno in pravočasno izpolnjevanje vseh denarnih obveznosti kreditojemalke do banke po finančni pogodbi skupaj z vsemi plačili obresti brez vsakršnih omejitev, provizij, nepredvidenih stroškov in drugih izdatkov ter vseh zneskov, ki jih kreditojemalka dolguje banki na podlagi določb finančne pogodbe.
2.02 Garant se obvezuje, da bo banki nemudoma priskrbel informacije o zakonodaji oziroma pravnem okviru, ki zadeva kreditojemalko in bi lahko vplival na izvedbo projekta.
Uveljavitev garancije
3.01 Zahtevek na podlagi te garancijske pogodbe je mogoče dati, kakor hitro kreditojemalka ne izpolni vseh obveznosti ali dela obveznosti, za katere velja garancija v skladu s členom 2.01 te pogodbe.
3.02 Garant se nepreklicno odreka vsakršnemu ugovoru ali zakonskim izjemam v zvezi s popolnim ali delnim uveljavljanjem te garancijske pogodbe. Obvezuje se, da bo na prvi pisni poziv banke izpolnil svoje obveznosti ob vsakem takem zahtevku in plačal zapadle zneske brez vsakršnih omejitev, zadrževanja 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 garancijske pogodbe. Še posebej banka ni dolžna dokazovati, da je sprožila kak postopek proti kreditojemalki; pred uveljavljanjem te garancijske pogodbe ni dolžna unovčiti vrednostnih papirjev ali uveljavljati kakega drugega jamstva, ki ga je morebiti zagotovila kreditojemalka ali kaka tretja stran.
3.03 Garantovo plačilo zapade deseti delovni dan po datumu zahtevka.
V tej garancijski pogodbi »delovni dan« pomeni dan, ko banke v Luxembourgu in Ljubljani poslujejo.
3.04 Če banka poda zahtevek, ima garant pravico pod pogoji, ki so navedeni v finančni pogodbi, takoj poravnati vse denarne obveznosti kreditojemalke iz finančne pogodbe, ki so ob taki poravnavi še neplačane.
Subrogacija (prenos pravic)
4.01 Ko garant izvede plačilo banki, v obsegu takega plačila prevzame pravice in terjatve, ki jih ima banka do kreditojemalke v zvezi s tem plačilom; na pravico do subrogacije se ni mogoče sklicevati v škodo banke.
5.01 Garant takoj obvesti banko o vsakem dejstvu ali dogodku, ki bi lahko ogrozil izpolnjevanje njegovih obveznosti iz te garancijske pogodbe.
5.02 Garant uradno obvesti banko o dokončanju postopkov, ki so v Republiki Sloveniji potrebni za začetek veljavnosti garancijske pogodbe.
Spremembe finančne pogodbe
6.01 Banka lahko soglaša z dopolnitvami finančne pogodbe, s katerimi se ne povečujejo zneski, ki jih kreditojemalka plača na njeni podlagi, in o njih uradno obvesti garanta.
Banka lahko na način, ki se ji zdi ustrezen, kreditojemalki odobri do trimesečno podaljšanje roka za vsako odplačilo glavnice ali plačilo obresti in drugih spremljajočih stroškov. O vsakem takem podaljšanju uradno obvesti garanta.
Razen sprememb iz zgornjih dveh odstavkov tega 6. člena je treba vse druge spremembe v finančni pogodbi predložiti v odobritev garantu. Slednji lahko svojo odobritev odreče samo, če bi predlagane spremembe lahko škodljivo vplivale nanj kot garanta.
Davki, druge dajatve in stroški
7.01 Davki ali druge dajatve, sodni in drugi stroški, ki nastanejo pri sklepanju ali izvajanju te garancijske pogodbe, bremenijo garanta. Garant bo plačila iz te pogodbe opravljal brez vsakršnega odbitka ali zmanjšanja zaradi davkov ali drugih dajatev.
Pravni režim te garancijske pogodbe
8.01 Pravna razmerja med pogodbenicama iz te garancijske pogodbe, njeno sestavo in veljavnost ureja zakonodaja Velikega vojvodstva Luksemburg.
8.02 Kraj izpolnitve te garancijske pogodbe je sedež banke.
8.03 Pogodbenici se podrejata izključni pristojnosti Sodišča Evropskih skupnosti in vsi spori v zvezi z garancijsko pogodbo se predložijo temu sodišču.
Odločitev Sodišča Evropskih skupnosti je dokončna in jo kot tako pogodbenici sprejmeta brez omejitev ali pridržkov.
8.04 Pogodbenici soglašata, da je ta garancijska pogodba komercialne narave, in se obvezujeta, da se bosta odpovedali vsem morebitnim imunitetam, ki jih uživata zdaj ali bi jih lahko uživali v prihodnje v kateri koli državi v zvezi s sodno pristojnostjo Sodišča Evropskih skupnosti.
8.05 V katerem koli pravnem sporu v zvezi s to garancijsko pogodbo je potrdilo banke o kakem znesku, dolgovanem banki po tej garancijski pogodbi, dokaz prima facie o takem znesku.
8.06 Ta garancijska pogodba začne veljati na dan, ko banka garantu izda pisno obvestilo, s katerim potrdi, da je prejela pisno obvestilo v skladu s členom 5.02 te garancijske pogodbe ter pravno mnenje, ki ga je izdala pravilno pooblaščena uradna oseba garantovega generalnega državnega pravobranilstva v obliki in z vsebino, ki sta za banko sprejemljivi.
