Each member shall pay to the Company the amount of every call so made upon him at the time(s) and place(s) designated in such call.

All expenses incurred by the Company with respect to the collection of any such amount of interest, including, inter-alia, attorney’s fees and costs of legal proceedings, shall be added to, and shall constitute a part of the amount payable to the Company in respect of such call for all purposes (including the accrual of interest thereon).
 
 
12.2.
Upon the adoption of a resolution of forfeiture, the Board shall cause the delivery of a notice thereof to the member in question. Same notice shall specify that, in the event of failure to pay the entire amount due within the period stipulated in the notice (which period shall be not less than thirty (30) days), same failure shall cause, ipso facto, the forfeiture of the shares. Prior to the expiration of such period, the Board may extend the period specified in the notice of forfeiture or nullify the resolution of forfeiture, but such nullification shall not estop nor derogate from the power of the Board to adopt a further resolution of forfeiture in respect of the non-payment of said amount.
 
 
12.3.
Whenever shares are forfeited as herein provided, all dividends theretofore declared in respect thereof and not actually paid shall be deemed to have been forfeited together with the shares.
 
 
12.4.
The Company, by a resolution of the Board, may accept the voluntary surrender by any member of all or any part of his shares.

Any share forfeited or surrendered as provided herein shall thereupon constitute the property of the Company, and may be resold. Such shares that have not yet been resold shall be considered dormant shares.
 
 
12.6.
Any member whose shares have been forfeited or surrendered shall cease to be a member in respect of the forfeited or surrendered shares, but shall, notwithstanding, be obligated to pay to the Company all amounts at the time of forfeiture or surrender due to the Company with respect thereof, including interest and expenses as aforesaid until actual repayment, whether the maturity date of same amounts is on or prior to the date of forfeiture or surrender or at any time thereafter, and the Board, in its discretion, may enforce payment of such amounts or any part thereof, unless such shares have been resold in which event the provisions of the Law shall apply. In the event of such forfeiture or surrender, the Company, by a resolution of the Board, may accelerate the maturity date(s) of any or all amounts then owed to the Company by same member and not yet due, however, arising whereupon all of such amounts shall forthwith become due and payable.
 
The Board may, at any time before any share so forfeited or surrendered shall have been reissued or otherwise disposed of to a third party, nullify the forfeiture or the acceptance of the surrender on such conditions as it thinks fit, but such nullification shall not estop nor derogate from the power of the Board to re-exercise its powers of forfeiture pursuant to this Article 12.
