In consideration of AIB Bank opening and issuing the credit specified overleaf, the applicant named in this Application Form agrees and undertakes to
(1) reimburse AIB Bank for all amounts paid or incurred by AIB Bank in connection with the credit in accordance with clause 8 of the Trade Terms and
(2) indemnify and keep AIB Bank indemnified from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, costs, expenses, claims and demands which AIB Bank may
incur or sustain in connection with the credit.

AIB Bank under or arising out of the credit. AIB Bank is to be bound only to see that the drafts and document purport to comply with the terms and
conditions of the credit and is not to be liable for any loss or damage however caused in connection therewith (including, without limitation, loss or
damage from delay or error in transmission or forwarding of the above or any future instruction or documents) not caused by the gross negligence or
wilful default of AIB Bank’s own officers or servants.

payment of any cheque, bill note or order drawn or accepted by the applicant or upon which the applicant may otherwise be liable, if such payments
would result in the credit balance of the applicant’s account being less than the amounts from time to time owing or due to AIB Bank by the applicant.
In the event of a receiver and/or liquidator being appointed to the applicant or if AIB Bank determines that a material adverse change has occurred to
the applicant’s business assets or future prospects, AIB Bank shall be entitled to immediately debit from any of the applicant’s accounts, the maximum
total amount of AIB Bank’s actual and contingent liability under the credit (notwithstanding that no actual payment has been made by AIB Bank) and AIB

credit and is not required to investigate the validity of any such demand for payment.
The applicant agrees that its liability hereunder shall also apply to any increase or decrease in the amount to be paid under the credit or any extension
