2. TITLES AND SECURITY INTEREST. Buyer hereby grants to Seller a security interest in the System to be acquired hereunder, including, Seller shall transfer titles to the System, and license rights to any Software, to Buyer upon delivery and at such time Seller shall have perfected a purchase money security interest in the System, including all additions and replacements thereto and the proceeds thereof, to secure performance of all such obligations of Buyer.
