Hallman may also elect to institute one or more of these remedies if Buyer fails to give reasonable assurances of due performance, or if in Hallman’s opinion, there is an adverse change in Buyer’s financial condition.

As security for the payment of the entire balance owed by Buyer to Seller, Seller shall retain, and Buyer hereby grants to Seller, a security interest in and to the goods sold to Buyer, together with all proceeds and products of and insurance on such goods.
