Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

The information set forth under “Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant” is incorporated herein by reference into this Item 1.01

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

On October 19, 2017, the Company entered into a Fifth Amended and Restated Senior Credit Agreement (the “Amended Facility”) with KeyBank Capital Markets, MUFG Union Bank, N.A., PNC Capital Markets LLC and Regions Capital Markets as joint lead arrangers and the other lending institutions that are parties thereto (collectively the “Lenders”) to increase the unsecured revolving credit facility from $200 million to $250 million and extend the maturity to October 2022.

Outstanding borrowings under the Amended Facility are limited to the lesser of (i) the sum of the $250.0 million revolving credit facility, the $50.0 million term loan maturing in August 2021 and the $100.0 million term loan maturing in January 2022 or (ii) 60.0% of the value of the unencumbered properties. Interest on the Amended Facility, including the term loans, is generally to be paid based upon, at the Company’s option, either (i) LIBOR plus the applicable LIBOR margin or (ii) the applicable base rate which is the greatest of the administrative agent’s prime rate, 0.50% above the federal funds effective rate, or thirty-day LIBOR plus the applicable LIBOR margin for LIBOR rate loans under the Amended Facility plus 1.25%. The applicable LIBOR margin will range from 1.05% to 1.50% for the revolving credit facility and 1.20% to 1.70% for the term loans, depending on the ratio of the Company’s outstanding consolidated indebtedness to the value of the Company’s consolidated gross asset value. The Amended Facility requires quarterly payments of an annual facility fee in an amount equal to 0.15% to 0.30% depending on the ratio of the Company’s outstanding consolidated indebtedness to the value of the Company’s consolidated gross asset value. The Amended Facility is guaranteed by the Company and by substantially all of the current and to-be-formed subsidiaries of the borrower (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company) that own an unencumbered property. The Amended Facility has been modified to be unsecured by the Company’s properties or by equity interests in the subsidiaries that hold such properties. The Amended Facility includes a series of financial and other covenants that the Company must comply with in order to borrow under the Amended Facility.

A copy of the Amended Facility is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1. The foregoing summary of the Amended Facility is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Amended Facility, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

ARTICLE II.

THE CREDIT

2.1. Generally. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Lenders severally agree (A) to make Advances through the Administrative Agent to Borrower as (i) the Term A Advance, which, as noted in the Original Credit Agreement, was fully funded under the Prior Credit Agreement, (ii) the Term B Advance, which, as noted in the Original Credit Agreement, was fully funded under the Prior Credit Agreement, and (iii) in the case of Revolving Advances, from time to time from and after the Agreement Execution Date and prior to the Revolving Facility Termination Date, and (B) to support the issuance of the Facility Letters of Credit under Article IIA of this Agreement, provided that the making of any such Advance or the issuance of any such Facility Letter of Credit will not:

(i) cause the then-current Outstanding Facility Amount to exceed the then-current Aggregate Commitment; or

(ii) cause the then-current Outstanding Revolving Amount to exceed the then-current Aggregate Revolving Commitment; or

(iii) cause the aggregate amount of Term A Advances to exceed the then-current aggregate Term A Loan Commitments; or

(iv) cause the aggregate amount of Term B Advances to exceed the then-current aggregate Term B Loan Commitments; or

(v) cause the then-current Unencumbered Pool Property Leverage Ratio to exceed the then current percentage permitted under Section 6.21(i); or

(vi) cause the then-current outstanding Swingline Advances to exceed the Swingline Commitment; or

(vii) cause the then outstanding Facility Letters of Credit Obligations to exceed the Facility Letter of Credit Sublimit.

 

- 26 -


The Advances may be Swingline Advances or ratable Base Rate Advances and ratable LIBOR Advances. Each applicable Lender shall fund its Percentage of each such Advance (other than a Swingline Advance which shall be funded solely by the Swingline Lender) and no Lender will be required to fund any amounts which, (A) when aggregated with such Lender’s Revolving Percentage of all Revolving Advances then outstanding and of all Facility Letter of Credit Obligations would exceed such Lender’s then-current Revolving Commitment, or (B) when aggregated with such Lender’s Term A Percentage of all Term A Advances then outstanding, would exceed such Lender’s then-current Term A Commitment or (C) when aggregated with such Lender’s Term B Percentage of all Term B Advances then outstanding, would exceed such Lender’s then-current Term B Commitment. This facility (“Facility”) is both a term loan and a revolving credit facility. Once repaid the Term Advances may not be reborrowed. Subject to the provisions of this Agreement, Borrower may request Revolving Advances hereunder from time to time, repay such Revolving Advances and reborrow Revolving Advances at any time prior to the Revolving Facility Termination Date.

2.2. Termination or Increase in Aggregate Commitment. Borrower shall have the right, upon at least three (3) business days’ notice, to terminate or cancel, in whole or in part, the unused portion of the Aggregate Revolving Commitment in excess of the Outstanding Revolving Facility Amount, provided that each partial reduction shall be in a minimum amount of $1,000,000 or any whole multiple of $250,000 in excess thereof. Any such reduction in the Aggregate Revolving Commitment shall be applied to reduce the Revolving Commitment of each Lender then holding a Revolving Commitment on a pro rata basis in accordance with their respective Revolving Commitments. Once terminated or reduced, the Revolving Commitments may not be reinstated or increased thereafter. Provided Borrower has not exercised any right to terminate or reduce the Revolving Commitments, Borrower shall also have the right from time to time, provided no Default or Unmatured Default has occurred and is then continuing, to increase the Aggregate Commitment up to a maximum of $600,000,000 by either adding new lenders as Lenders (subject to the Administrative Agent’s prior written approval of the identity of such new lenders) or obtaining the agreement, which shall be at such Lender’s or Lenders’ sole discretion, of one or more of the then current Lenders to increase its or their Commitments. Each such increase may apply to the Revolving Commitments, the Term A Loan Commitments, or the Term B Loan Commitments, as may be determined by Borrower and the Lenders providing such increase. On the effective date of any such increase, Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent any amounts due to it under the Fee Letter and to each new lender or then-current Lender providing such additional Commitment the up-front fee agreed to between Borrower and such party. Such increases shall be evidenced by the execution and delivery of an Amendment Regarding Increase in the form of Exhibit A attached to this Agreement by Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the new lender or existing Lender providing such additional Commitment, a copy of which shall be forwarded to each Lender by the Administrative Agent promptly after execution thereof. On the effective date of each such increase in the Aggregate Commitment, Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall cause the new or existing Lenders providing such increase to hold its or their Percentage of all applicable Advances outstanding at the close of business on such day, including, in the case of increases in the Aggregate Revolving Commitment, by funding more than its or their Percentage of new Revolving Advances made on such date or by purchasing shares of outstanding Revolving Loans held by the other Lenders or by a combination thereof, provided that all conditions to such funding under this Agreement are satisfied, including without limitation the certificate referenced in Section 4.2(iii) hereof. The Lenders agree to cooperate in any required sale and purchase of outstanding Revolving Loans to achieve such result. In no event shall the Aggregate Commitment exceed $600,000,000 without the approval of all of the Lenders.

2.3. Applicable Margins and Facility Fee. Prior to the Investment Grade Rating Date, the interest due hereunder with respect to the Advances shall vary from time to time and shall be determined by reference to the Type of Advance and the then-current Leverage Ratio. In addition, the Facility Fee shall vary from time to time by reference to the then-current Leverage Ratio. Any such change in the Applicable Margin or Facility Fee shall be made on the fifth (5th) day subsequent to the date on which the Administrative Agent receives a compliance certificate pursuant to Section 6.1(iv) with respect to the preceding fiscal quarter of Borrower, provided that the Administrative Agent does not object to the information provided in such certificate and provided further that if any such compliance certificate has not been delivered by the date required under Section 6.1(iv) and remains undelivered for five (5) business days after written notice thereof from the Administrative Agent, the Applicable Margins and Facility Fee shall accrue as if the Leverage Ratio were in excess of 55% until such delivery occurs. Subject to the following sentence, such changes shall be given prospective effect only, and no recalculation shall be done with respect to interest or Letter of Credit Fees accrued prior to the date of such change in the Applicable Margin and Facility Fee. If any such compliance certificate shall later be determined to be incorrect and as a result a higher Applicable Margin or Facility Fee should have been in effect for any period, Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Lenders all additional interest and fees which would have accrued if the original compliance certificate had been correct, as shown on an invoice to be prepared by the Administrative Agent and delivered to Borrower, on the next Payment Date following delivery of such invoice. The per annum Applicable Margins that will be either added to the Floor Base Rate to determine the Base Rate or added to LIBOR Base Rate (as adjusted for any Reserve Requirement) to determine the LIBOR Rate for any LIBOR Interest Period and the per annum Facility Fee Percentage (the “Leverage Based Pricing Grid”) shall both be determined as follows:

On and at all times after the Investment Grade Rating Date, at the one-time irrevocable election of the Borrower, the Applicable Margins thereafter shall vary from time to time and shall be determined by reference to the Type of Advance and the then-current Credit Ratings of Borrower, and the Facility Fee Percentage shall be similarly determined. The change from the Leverage Based Pricing Grid above to the Rating Based Pricing Grid below shall be effective as of the first day of the first calendar month immediately following the month in which the Administrative Agent receives written notice delivered by the Borrower that it has achieved such Investment Grade Ratings and elects to have the Ratings Based Pricing Grid apply. Any subsequent change in any of the Borrower’s Credit Ratings which would cause a different level to be applicable shall be effective as of the first day of the first calendar month immediately following the month in which the Administrative Agent receives written notice delivered by the Borrower that such change in a Credit Rating has occurred; provided, however, if the Borrower has not delivered the notice required but the Administrative Agent becomes aware that any of the Borrower’s Credit Ratings have changed, then the Administrative Agent shall adjust the level effective as of the first day of the first calendar month following the date the Administrative Agent becomes aware of such change in Borrower’s Credit Ratings. The per annum Applicable Margins that will be either added to the Alternate Base Rate to determine the Floating Rate or added to LIBOR Base Rate (as adjusted for any Reserve Requirement) to determine the LIBOR Rate for any LIBOR Interest Period and the per annum Facility Fee Percentage (the “Ratings Based Pricing Grid”) shall be determined as follows:

During any period for which the rating agencies assign Credit Ratings which correspond to three different levels in the Ratings Based Pricing Grid, the Applicable Margins and Facility Fee Percentage will be determined by (A) the highest Credit Rating, if the Credit Ratings differ by only one level and (B) the average of the two highest Credit Ratings, if the Credit Ratings differ by two or more levels

 

- 29 -


(unless the average of such two highest Credit Ratings is not a recognized level, in which case the Applicable Margin and Facility Fee Percentage will be based on the level corresponding to the second highest Credit Rating). During any period for which the rating agencies assign Credit Ratings which correspond to two different levels in the Ratings Based Pricing Grid the Applicable Margins and Facility Fee Percentage will be determined by (A) the highest Credit Rating, if the Credit Ratings differ by only one level and (B) the median of the two Credit Ratings, if the Credit Ratings differ by two or more levels (unless the median of such two Credit Ratings is not a recognized level, in which case the Applicable Margin and Facility Fee Percentage will be based on the level which is one (1) level below the level corresponding to the higher of such Credit Ratings). During any period after the Investment Grade Rating Date for which the Borrower has received a Credit Rating from only one Rating Agency, the Applicable Margin and Facility Fee Percentage shall be determined based on such Credit Rating so long as such Credit Rating is from either S&P or Moody’s, and otherwise at the “Below BBB- and Baa3” level.

2.4. Final Principal Payment. Any outstanding Revolving Advances and all other unpaid Obligations allocated by the Administrative Agent thereto shall be paid in full by Borrower on the Revolving Facility Termination Date. All outstanding Term A Advances and Term B Advances, and all other unpaid Obligations allocated by the Administrative Agent to each such Type of Term Advance, shall be paid in full by Borrower on the applicable Term Facility Termination Date.

2.5. Facility Fee. A facility fee (the “Facility Fee”) shall accrue and be payable by Borrower to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Lender and shall be computed on a daily basis by multiplying (i) the Facility Fee Percentage applicable to such day, expressed as a per diem rate, times (ii) the Aggregate Revolving Commitment in effect on such day. The Facility Fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the first Business Day of each calendar quarter (for the prior calendar quarter) and upon any termination of the Aggregate Revolving Commitment in its entirety. Following its receipt of any such Facility Fee, Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to each Lender holding a Revolving Commitment an amount equal to such Lender’s applicable Revolving Percentage of the daily amount of such Facility Fee, based on such Lender’s Revolving Commitment on such day. The Facility Fee shall be computed on a 360 day year, and actual days elapsed.

2.6. Other Fees. Borrower agrees to pay all fees payable to the Administrative Agent in connection with this Agreement.

2.7. Minimum Amount of Each Advance. Each Advance shall be in the minimum amount of $1,000,000; provided, however, that any Base Rate Advance may be in the amount of the unused Revolving Commitments, Term A Loan Commitments or Term B Loan Commitments, as applicable.

2.8. Principal Payments.

(a) Optional. Borrower may from time to time pay, without penalty or premium, all or any part of any outstanding Base Rate Advances on not less than one (1) Business Day prior notice to the Administrative Agent. A LIBOR Advance under the Revolving Credit Facility, the Term A Loan Facility or the Term B Loan Facility may be paid on the last day of the LIBOR applicable LIBOR Interest Period or, if and only if Borrower pays any amounts due to the Lenders under Section 3.4 as a result of such prepayment, on a day prior to such last day. Unless otherwise directed by the Borrower by written notice to the Administrative Agent, all principal payments made when no Default has occurred and is continuing shall first be applied to repay all outstanding Revolving Advances, then to repay the Term A Advances and then to repay the Term B Advances. If a Default has occurred and is continuing such principal payment shall be applied on a pro rata basis to all outstanding Advances.

 

- 30 -


(b) Mandatory. Borrower shall make mandatory partial principal payments from time to time if, due to any reduction in the Unencumbered Property Pool Value or in the Unsecured Debt Service Coverage, whether by an Unencumbered Property failing to continue to satisfy the requirement for qualification as an Unencumbered Property or by a reduction in the Unencumbered Property Pool Value or the Adjusted Unencumbered Property Pool NOI attributable to any Qualifying Unencumbered Property, a violation of the covenants set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) of Section 6.21 shall occur. Such principal payments shall be in the amount needed to eliminate such violation. Such mandatory principal payments shall be due and payable (i) in the case of any reduction due to (a) reduction in the Unencumbered Property Pool NOI attributable to an Unencumbered Property or a violation of one of the limitations set forth in Section 2.22(i), ten (10) Business Days after delivery of the quarterly financial statements and Compliance Certificate under Section 6.1 evidencing such reduction or (ii) in all other cases, ten (10) Business Days after Borrower’s receipt of notice from the Administrative Agent of such failure to satisfy a requirement for qualification as an Unencumbered Property.

2.9. Method of Selecting Types and Interest Periods for New Advances. Each Advance hereunder shall consist of Loans made from the several Lenders ratably in proportion to the ratio their respective Revolving Commitment, Term A Loan Commitment or Term B Loan Commitment bears to the Aggregate Revolving Commitment, total Term A Loan Commitments or total Term B Loan Commitments, as the case may be, except for Swingline Loans which shall be made by the Swingline Lender in accordance with Section 2.16. Borrower shall select the Type of Advance and, in the case of each LIBOR Advance, the LIBOR Interest Period applicable thereto from time to time. Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent irrevocable notice (a “Borrowing Notice”) in the form attached as Exhibit F (i) not later than 3:00 p.m. Cleveland, Ohio time on the Business Day immediately preceding the Borrowing Date of each Base Rate Advance (other than Swingline Advances), (ii) not later than 10:00 a.m. Cleveland, Ohio time, at least three (3) Business Days before the Borrowing Date for each LIBOR Advance, and (iii) not later than noon Cleveland, Ohio time on the same day as the Borrowing Date for each Swingline Advance, which shall specify:

(i) the Borrowing Date, which shall be a Business Day, of such Advance;

(ii) the aggregate amount of such Advance;

(iii) the Type of Advance selected; and

(iv) in the case of each LIBOR Advance, the LIBOR Interest Period applicable thereto.

The Administrative Agent shall promptly give each Lender notice of the contents of each Borrowing Notice received from Borrower. Each Lender shall make available its Loan or Loans, in funds immediately available in Cleveland to the Administrative Agent at its address specified pursuant to Article XIII on each Borrowing Date not later than (i) 2:00 p.m. Cleveland, Ohio time, in the case of Swingline Advances, or (ii) noon Cleveland, Ohio time in the case of all other Advances. The Administrative Agent will make the funds so received from the Lenders available to Borrower at the Administrative Agent’s aforesaid address.

 

- 31 -


No LIBOR Interest Period may end after the Term A Loan Facility Termination Date, the Term B Loan Facility Termination Date or the Revolving Facility Termination Date, as applicable to the Type of Advance involved, and, unless the Lenders otherwise agree in writing, in no event may there be more than nine (9) different LIBOR Interest Periods for LIBOR Advances outstanding at any one time.

2.10. Conversion and Continuation of Outstanding Advances. Base Rate Advances shall continue as Base Rate Advances unless and until such Base Rate Advances are converted into LIBOR Advances. Each LIBOR Advance shall continue as a LIBOR Advance until the end of the then applicable LIBOR Interest Period therefor, at which time such LIBOR Advance shall be automatically converted into a Base Rate Advance unless Borrower shall have given the Administrative Agent a Conversion/Continuation Notice requesting that, at the end of such LIBOR Interest Period, such LIBOR Advance either continue as a LIBOR Advance for the same or another Interest Period or be converted to an Advance of another Type. Subject to the terms of Section 2.7, Borrower may elect from time to time to convert all or any part of an Advance of any Type into any other Type or Types of Advances; provided that any conversion of any LIBOR Advance shall be made on, and only on, the last day of the LIBOR Interest Period applicable thereto, that a Revolving Advance can only be converted into another Type of Revolving Advance, that a Term A Advance can only be converted into another Type of Term A Advance and that a Term B Advance can only be converted into another Type of Term B Advance. Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent irrevocable notice (a “Conversion/Continuation Notice”) of each conversion of an Advance to a LIBOR Advance or continuation of a LIBOR Advance not later than 10:00 a.m. (Cleveland time), at least three Business Days, in the case of a conversion into or continuation of a LIBOR Advance, prior to the date of the requested conversion or continuation, specifying:

(i) the requested date which shall be a Business Day, of such conversion or continuation;

(ii) the aggregate amount and Type of the Advance which is to be converted or continued; and

(iii) the amount and Type(s) of Advance(s) into which such Advance is to be converted or continued and, in the case of a conversion into or continuation of a LIBOR Advance, the duration of the LIBOR Interest Period applicable thereto.

2.11. Changes in Interest Rate, Etc. Each Base Rate Advance shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for each day from and including the date such Advance is made or is converted from a LIBOR Advance into a Base Rate Advance pursuant to Section 2.10 to but excluding the date it becomes due or is converted into a LIBOR Advance pursuant to Section 2.10 hereof, at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate for such day. Changes in the rate of interest on that portion of any Advance maintained as a Base Rate Advance will take effect simultaneously with each change in the Base Rate. Each LIBOR Advance shall bear interest from and including the first day of the LIBOR Interest Period applicable thereto to (but not including) the last day of such LIBOR Interest Period at the interest rate determined as applicable to such LIBOR Advance.

2.12. Rates Applicable After Default. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Section 2.9 or 2.10, during the continuance of a Default the Required Lenders may, at their option, by notice to Borrower (which notice may be revoked at the option of the Required Lenders notwithstanding any provision of Section 8.2 requiring unanimous consent of the Lenders to changes in interest rates), declare that no Advance may be made as, converted into or continued as a LIBOR

 

- 32 -


Rate Advance. During the continuance of a Default the Required Lenders may, at their option, by notice to Borrower (which notice may be revoked at the option of the Required Lenders notwithstanding any provision of Section 8.2 requiring unanimous consent of the Lenders to changes in interest rates), declare that (i) each LIBOR Advance shall bear interest for the remainder of the applicable LIBOR Interest Period at the rate otherwise applicable to such LIBOR Interest Period plus 3% per annum and (ii) each Base Rate Advance shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate otherwise applicable to the Base Rate Advance plus 3% per annum; provided, however, that the Default Rate shall become applicable automatically if a Default occurs under Section 7.1 or 7.2, unless waived by the Required Lenders.

2.13. Method of Payment. All payments of the Obligations hereunder shall be made, without setoff, deduction, or counterclaim, in immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s address specified pursuant to Article XIII, or at any other Lending Installation of the Administrative Agent specified in writing by the Administrative Agent to Borrower, by noon (local time) on the date when due and shall be applied ratably by the Administrative Agent among the Lenders. As provided elsewhere herein, all Lenders’ interests in the Advances and the Loan Documents shall be ratable undivided interests and none of such Lenders’ interests shall have priority over the others. Each payment delivered to the Administrative Agent for the account of any Lender or amount to be applied or paid by the Administrative Agent to any Lender shall be paid promptly (on the same day as received by the Administrative Agent if received prior to noon (local time) on such day and otherwise on the next Business Day) by the Administrative Agent to such Lender in the same type of funds that the Administrative Agent received at its address specified pursuant to Article XIII or at any Lending Installation specified in a notice received by the Administrative Agent from such Lender. Payments received by the Administrative Agent but not timely funded to the Lenders shall bear interest payable by the Administrative Agent at the Federal Funds Effective Rate from the date due until the date paid. The Administrative Agent is hereby authorized to charge the account of Borrower maintained with KeyBank for each payment of principal, interest and fees as it becomes due hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, amounts received from any Loan Party that is not a Qualified ECP Guarantor shall not be applied to Obligations that are Excluded Swap Obligations, but appropriate adjustments shall be made with respect to payments from the other Loan Parties to preserve the allocation to the Obligations set forth above.

2.14. Notes; Telephonic Notices. Each Lender is hereby authorized to record the principal amount of each of its Loans and each repayment on the schedule attached to its Note, provided, however, that the failure to so record shall not affect Borrower’s obligations under such Note. Borrower hereby authorizes the Lenders and the Administrative Agent to extend, convert or continue Advances, effect selections of Types of Advances and to transfer funds based on telephonic notices made by any Authorized Officer. Borrower agrees to deliver promptly to the Administrative Agent a written confirmation, if such confirmation is requested by the Administrative Agent or any Lender, of each telephonic notice signed by an Authorized Officer. If the written confirmation differs in any material respect from the action taken by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders, the records of the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall govern absent manifest error. Upon a Lender’s furnishing to Borrower an affidavit to such effect, if a Note is mutilated, destroyed, lost or stolen, Borrower shall deliver to such Lender, in substitution therefore, a new note containing the same terms and conditions as such Note being replaced.

2.15. Interest Payment Dates; Interest and Fee Basis. Interest accrued on each Advance shall be payable on each Payment Date, commencing with the first such date to occur after the date hereof, at maturity, whether by acceleration or otherwise, and upon any termination of the Revolving Commitments in their entirety under Section 2.2 hereof. Interest, Facility Fees, Facility Letter of

 

- 33 -


Credit Fees and all other fees shall be calculated for actual days elapsed on the basis of a 360-day year. Interest shall be payable for the day an Advance is made but not for the day of any payment on the amount paid if payment is received prior to noon (local time) at the place of payment. If any payment of principal of or interest on an Advance shall become due on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and, in the case of a principal payment, such extension of time shall be included in computing interest in connection with such payment.

2.16. Swingline Advances. In addition to the other options available to Borrower hereunder, the Swingline Commitment shall be available for Swingline Advances subject to the following terms and conditions. Swingline Advances shall be made available for same day borrowings provided that notice is given in accordance with Section 2.9 hereof. All Swingline Advances shall bear interest at the Base Rate. In no event shall the Swingline Lender be required to fund a Swingline Advance if it would increase the total aggregate outstanding Revolving Loans by Swingline Lender hereunder plus its Revolving Percentage of Facility Letter of Credit Obligations to an amount in excess of the Swingline Lender’s Revolving Commitment. No Swingline Advance may be made to repay a Swingline Advance, but Borrower may repay Swingline Advances from subsequent pro rata Advances hereunder. On the fifth (5th) day after such a Swingline Advance was made, if such Swingline Advance has not been repaid by Borrower, each Revolving Lender irrevocably agrees to purchase its Revolving Percentage of any Swingline Advance made by the Swingline Lender regardless of whether the conditions for disbursement are satisfied at the time of such purchase, including the existence of an Unmatured Default or Default hereunder provided that Swingline Lender did not have actual knowledge of such Unmatured Default or Default at the time the Swingline Advance was made and provided further that no Lender shall be required to have total outstanding Revolving Loans plus its Revolving Percentage of Facility Letters of Credit exceed its Revolving Commitment. Such purchase shall take place on the date of the request by Swingline Lender so long as such request is made by noon (Cleveland time), and otherwise on the Business Day following such request. All requests for purchase shall be in writing. From and after the date it is so purchased, each such Swingline Advance shall, to the extent purchased, (i) be treated as a Revolving Loan made by the purchasing Revolving Lenders and not by the selling Revolving Lender for all purposes under this Agreement and the payment of the purchase price by a Lender shall be deemed to be the making of a Revolving Loan by such Revolving Lender and shall constitute outstanding principal under such Revolving Lender’s Note, and (ii) shall no longer be considered a Swingline Advance except that all interest accruing on or attributable to such Swingline Advance for the period prior to the date of such purchase shall be paid when due by Borrower to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Swingline Lender and all such amounts accruing on or attributable to such Revolving Loans for the period from and after the date of such purchase shall be paid when due by Borrower to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the purchasing Revolving Lenders. If prior to purchasing its Revolving Percentage of a Swingline Advance one of the events described in Section 7.7 shall have occurred and such event prevents the consummation of the purchase contemplated by preceding provisions, each Lender will purchase an undivided participating interest in the outstanding Swingline Advance in an amount equal to its Revolving Percentage of such Swingline Advance. From and after the date of each Revolving Lender’s purchase of its participating interest in a Swingline Advance, if the Swingline Lender receives any payment on account thereof, the Swingline Lender will distribute to such Revolving Lender its participating interest in such amount (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Revolving Lender’s participating interest was outstanding and funded); provided, however, that in the event that such payment was received by the Swingline Lender and is required to be returned to Borrower, each Revolving Lender will return to the Swingline Lender any portion thereof previously distributed by the Swingline Lender to it. If any Revolving Lender fails to so purchase its Revolving Percentage of any Swingline Advance, such Revolving Lender shall be

 

- 34 -


deemed to be a Defaulting Lender hereunder. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.16, the Swingline Lender shall not be obligated to make any Swingline Loan at a time when any other Lender is a Defaulting Lender, unless the Swingline Lender is satisfied that the participation therein will otherwise be fully allocated to the Lenders that are Non-Defaulting Lenders consistent with Section 10.14 and the Defaulting Lender shall not participate therein, except to the extent the Swingline Lender has entered into arrangements with the Borrower or such Defaulting Lender that are satisfactory to the Swingline Lender in its good faith determination to eliminate the Swingline Lender’s Fronting Exposure with respect to any such Defaulting Lender, including the delivery of cash collateral.

2.17. Notification of Advances, Interest Rates and Prepayments. The Administrative Agent will notify each Lender of the contents of each Borrowing Notice, Conversion/Continuation Notice, and repayment notice received by it hereunder not later than the close of business on the Business Day such notice is received by the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent will notify each Lender of the interest rate applicable to each LIBOR Advance promptly upon determination of such interest rate and will give each Lender prompt notice of each change in the Floor Base Rate.

2.18. Lending Installations. Each Lender may book its Loans at any Lending Installation selected by such Lender and may change its Lending Installation from time to time. All terms of this Agreement shall apply to any such Lending Installation and the Notes shall be deemed held by each Lender for the benefit of such Lending Installation. Each Lender may, by written or telex notice to Administrative Agent and Borrower, designate a Lending Installation through which Loans will be made by it and for whose account Loan payments are to be made.

2.19. Non-Receipt of Funds by the Administrative Agent. Unless Borrower or a Lender, as the case may be, notifies the Administrative Agent prior to the time at which it is scheduled to make payment to the Administrative Agent of (i) in the case of a Lender, the proceeds of a Loan or (ii) in the case of Borrower, a payment of principal, interest or fees to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders, that it does not intend to make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that such payment has been made. The Administrative Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, make the amount of such payment available to the intended recipient in reliance upon such assumption. If such Lender or Borrower, as the case may be, has not in fact made such payment to the Administrative Agent, the recipient of such payment shall, on demand by the Administrative Agent, repay to the Administrative Agent the amount so made available together with interest thereon in respect of each day during the period commencing on the date such amount was so made available by the Administrative Agent until the date the Administrative Agent recovers such amount at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of payment by a Lender, the Federal Funds Effective Rate for such day or (ii) in the case of payment by Borrower, the interest rate applicable to the relevant Loan. If such Lender so repays such amount and interest thereon to the Administrative Agent within one Business Day after such demand, all interest accruing on the Loan not funded by such Lender during such period shall be payable to such Lender when received from Borrower.

2.20. Replacement of Lenders under Certain Circumstances. Borrower shall be permitted to replace any Lender which (a) is not capable of receiving payments without any deduction or withholding of United States federal income tax pursuant to Section 3.5, or (b) cannot maintain its LIBOR Loans at a suitable Lending Installation pursuant to Section 3.3, with a replacement bank or other financial institution; provided that (i) such replacement does not conflict with any applicable legal or regulatory requirements affecting the Lenders, (ii) no Default shall have occurred and be continuing at the time of such replacement, (iii) Borrower shall repay (or the replacement bank or institution shall purchase), at par all Loans and other amounts owing to such replaced Lender prior to

 

- 35 -


the date of replacement, (iv) Borrower shall be liable to such replaced Lender under Sections 3.4 and 3.6 if any LIBOR Loan owing to such replaced Lender shall be prepaid (or purchased) other than on the last day of the LIBOR Interest Period relating thereto, (v) the replacement bank or institution, if not already a Lender, and the terms and conditions of such replacement, shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, (vi) the replaced Lender shall be obligated to make such replacement in accordance with the provisions of Section 12.3 (provided that Borrower shall be obligated to pay the processing fee referred to therein), (vii) until such time as such replacement shall be consummated, Borrower shall pay all additional amounts (if any) required pursuant to Section 3.5 and (viii) any such replacement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any rights which Borrower, the Administrative Agent or any other Lender shall have against the replaced Lender.

2.21. Usury. This Agreement and each Note are subject to the express condition that at no time shall Borrower be obligated or required to pay interest on the principal balance of the Loan at a rate which could subject any Lender to either civil or criminal liability as a result of being in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate. If by the terms of this Agreement or the Loan Documents, Borrower is at any time required or obligated to pay interest on the principal balance due hereunder at a rate in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate, the interest rate or the Default Rate, as the case may be, shall be deemed to be immediately reduced to the Maximum Legal Rate and all previous payments in excess of the Maximum Legal Rate shall be deemed to have been payments in reduction of principal and not on account of the interest due hereunder. All sums paid or agreed to be paid to Lender for the use, forbearance, or detention of the sums due under the Loan, shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be amortized, prorated, allocated, and spread throughout the full stated term of the Loan until payment in full so that the rate or amount of interest on account of the Loan does not exceed the Maximum Legal Rate of interest from time to time in effect and applicable to the Loan for so long as the Loan is outstanding.

2.22. Unencumbered Properties. The Qualifying Unencumbered Properties which have been approved by the Lenders and the Administrative Agent as of the Agreement Execution Date and are listed on Schedule 7 attached hereto and made a part hereof.

(i) Additional Requirements for Inclusion in Unencumbered Property Pool Value. The following additional requirements shall apply to all Qualifying Unencumbered Properties (except as noted to the contrary):

(a) Occupancy Percentage. The aggregate Occupancy Percentage of all Qualifying Unencumbered Properties must equal or exceed 80.0% at all times. If such minimum would be violated at any time, the Qualifying Unencumbered Properties with the lowest Occupancy Percentages shall be eliminated from inclusion in the calculation of Unencumbered Property Pool Value, as necessary to achieve such minimum and such eliminated Qualifying Unencumbered Properties shall not be included in such calculation until their inclusion will not cause the aggregate Occupancy Percentage of all Qualifying Unencumbered Properties to be less than 80.0%.

(b) Restriction on Ground Leased Projects. Not more than ten percent (10%) of the Unencumbered Property Pool Value and not more than ten percent (10%) of the Adjusted Unencumbered Property Pool NOI may at any time be attributable to Qualifying Unencumbered Properties that are not owned in fee simple, but are instead leased under a Qualifying Ground Lease. To the extent that such percentage limitation is exceeded, such Qualifying Unencumbered Properties shall still be included in the calculations of Unencumbered Property Pool Value and of Adjusted Unencumbered Property Pool NOI, but the amounts so contributed to Unencumbered Property Pool Value and Adjusted Unencumbered Property Pool NOI shall be reduced to the extent necessary to comply with such percentage limitation.

 

- 36 -


(ii) Unencumbered Property Addition Transaction. If Borrower desires to add one or more additional Qualifying Unencumbered Properties to the Unencumbered Property Pool (an “Unencumbered Property Addition Transaction”), Borrower must deliver to the Administrative Agent not less than five (5) Business Days prior to the proposed effective date of such Unencumbered Property Addition Transaction, a compliance certificate, with accompanying calculations, which shall be subject to Administrative Agent’s review and reasonable approval, on behalf of the Lenders, setting forth the adjustments to the Unencumbered Property Pool Leverage Ratio and Unsecured Debt Service Coverage, and Occupancy Percentage of all Unencumbered Properties on a pro forma basis as of the date of such proposed Unencumbered Property Addition Transaction. Borrower shall thereafter submit on request by the Administrative Agent such additional information regarding the proposed addition to the Unencumbered Property Pool as Administrative Agent may reasonably request to confirm that the proposed Property is a Qualifying Unencumbered Property. Not later than 45 days after the close of each of the first three (3) fiscal quarters of the Consolidated Group, and not later than 90 days after the close of the fourth (4th) fiscal quarter of the Consolidated Group, Borrower shall cause the owner of each Qualifying Unencumbered Property which has been added to the Unencumbered Property Pool pursuant to an Unencumbered Property Addition Transaction during the immediately preceding fiscal quarter to execute and deliver to the Administrative Agent a Joinder to the Subsidiary Guaranty in the form attached as Exhibit A to the Subsidiary Guaranty (a “Joinder”) confirming that such owner has become a Subsidiary Guarantor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) if any Event of Default shall occur prior to the date delivery of any such Joinder is required under the preceding sentence, such Joinder shall be delivered to the Administrative Agent not later than five (5) Business Days after such Event of Default occurs and (ii) any such owner must so execute and deliver such a Joinder to the Administrative Agent on the date of the Unencumbered Property Addition Transaction, and as a condition to the effectiveness thereof, if, as a result of such addition, the aggregate amount of Unencumbered Property Pool Value attributable (i) to Qualifying Unencumbered Properties with respect to which the owners have not yet delivered Joinders adding them as Subsidiary Guarantors and (ii) to Qualifying Unencumbered Properties owned by Wholly-Owned Subsidiaries which have been released in advance from the Subsidiary Guaranty pursuant to Section 2.22(iii)(e), would represent more than 10% of the total Unencumbered Property Pool Value as of the date of the proposed Unencumbered Property Addition Transaction. Any failure to timely deliver such a Joinder by the applicable due date shall result in the applicable Qualifying Unencumbered Property being removed immediately from the Unencumbered Property Pool.

(iii) Unencumbered Property Release Transaction. Provided no Default or Unmatured Default shall have occurred hereunder or under the other Loan Documents and be continuing (or would exist immediately after giving effect to the transactions contemplated by this Section 2.22(iii), including the covenants set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) of Section 6.21, Subsidiary may (i) sell an Unencumbered Property (or Borrower may sell its ownership interest in such Subsidiary Guarantor), (ii) contribute an Unencumbered Property (or Borrower may contribute its ownership interest in such Subsidiary Guarantor) to an existing or newly formed Investment Affiliate, (iii) create a Lien securing Indebtedness on an Unencumbered Property or (iv) request that a particular Project no longer constitutes an Unencumbered Property (for

 

- 37 -


purposes of this Section, such a sale or contribution of an Unencumbered Property or the creation of such a Lien or recharacterization of such Project shall be referred to as a “Unencumbered Property Release Transaction”) upon the following terms and conditions:

(a) Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent written notice of the desire to consummate such Unencumbered Property Release Transaction on or before the date that is ten (10) Business Days prior to the date on which the Unencumbered Property Release Transaction is to be effected;

(b) On or before the date that is five (5) Business Days prior to the date of the Unencumbered Property Release Transaction is to be effected, Borrower shall submit to the Administrative Agent a certificate, which shall be subject to the Administrative Agent’s review and reasonable approval, on behalf of the Lenders, setting forth the Unencumbered Property Pool Leverage Ratio and Unsecured Debt Service Coverage on a pro forma basis as of the date of the proposed Unencumbered Property Release Transaction giving effect to: (A) the Unencumbered Property Release Transaction and (B) any contemplated paydown of the Outstanding Facility Amount in connection with such Unencumbered Property Release Transaction (the “Pro Forma Calculations”);

(c) If the Pro Forma Calculations show that Borrower will be out of compliance with the covenants contained in clauses (i) and (ii) of Section 6.21 or with any of the limitations set forth in the definition of Qualifying Unencumbered Property or in this Section 2.22, Borrower shall, before the closing of the Unencumbered Property Release Transaction, either add to the Unencumbered Property Pool an additional Qualifying Unencumbered Property that causes Borrower to be in compliance with such covenants and conditions or pay down the Outstanding Facility Amount sufficiently to permit Borrower to be in compliance with those covenants and conditions;

(d) To the extent that any such sale, disposition or financing of all or a portion of a Qualifying Unencumbered Property (or of any ownership interest in a Subsidiary Guarantor owning such Qualifying Unencumbered Property) occurs as permitted by this Section 2.22, Borrower shall make a principal payment on the Notes as and to the extent required by Section 2.8(b) of this Agreement.

(e) With respect to any Subsidiary Guarantor which owns a Qualifying Unencumbered Property, if Borrower gives the Administrative Agent written notice prior to the last day of a fiscal quarter of the Consolidated Group that Borrower in good faith expects that such Qualifying Unencumbered Property will be released from the Unencumbered Property Pool during the immediately following fiscal quarter on account of an Unencumbered Property Release Transaction, Administrative Agent is hereby authorized by the Lenders to execute and deliver a release of such Subsidiary Guarantor from the Subsidiary Guaranty, effective as of the last day of such current fiscal quarter. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) in no event shall any such Subsidiary Guarantor be so released from the Subsidiary Guaranty in advance of the release of its Qualifying Unencumbered Property from the Unencumbered Property Pool if, as a result of such release, the aggregate amount of Unencumbered Property Pool Value attributable (A) to Qualifying Unencumbered Properties owned by all Subsidiary Guarantors so released in advance from the Subsidiary Guaranty and (B) to Qualifying

 

- 38 -


Unencumbered Properties with respect to which the owners have not yet delivered Joinders joining in the Subsidiary Guaranty, would represent more than 10% of the total Unencumbered Property Pool Value as of the date of such proposed release from the Subsidiary Guaranty and (ii) if any Event of Default shall occur prior to the effective date of any such expected Unencumbered Property Release Transaction, Borrower agrees to cause the Wholly-Owned Subsidiary which owns the applicable Unencumbered Property to again join the Subsidiary Guaranty by executing and delivering to the Administrative Agent a Joinder to the Subsidiary Guaranty within five (5) Business Days after the occurrence of such Event of Default. Even though a Subsidiary Guarantor may be so released from the Subsidiary Guaranty, the Qualifying Unencumbered Property owned by such Subsidiary Guaranty will remain in the Unencumbered Property Pool until the satisfaction of all conditions to the release of such Qualifying Unencumbered Property from the Unencumbered Property Pool, including without limitation payment of any portion of the Outstanding Facility Amount which may be due under Section 2.22(iii)(c) in connection with the applicable sale, disposition or financing. If the satisfaction of all conditions to the release of such a Qualifying Unencumbered Property from the Unencumbered Property Pool does not occur within the applicable fiscal quarter as planned, Borrower hereby agrees to cause the Wholly-Owned Subsidiary which owns such unreleased Qualifying Unencumbered Property to again join in the Subsidiary Guaranty by executing and delivering to Administrative Agent a Joinder to the Subsidiary Guaranty within five (5) Business Days after the last day of such fiscal quarter.

(f) Upon the occurrence of the Unencumbered Property Release Transaction, the underlying Project shall no longer be an Unencumbered Property.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.22(iii), no Qualifying Unencumbered Property shall be released from the Unencumbered Property Pool without Required Lender approval if such release will cause the Unencumbered Property Pool to have fewer than fifteen (15) Qualifying Unencumbered Properties remaining or if it would reduce the Unencumbered Property Pool Value below $175,000,000.

2.23. Extension of Revolving Facility Termination Date. Borrower shall have two (2) options to extend the Revolving Facility Termination Date for a period of six (6) months each, upon satisfaction of the following conditions precedent:

(i) As of the date of Borrower’s delivery of notice of its intent to exercise such option, and as of the initial Revolving Facility Termination Date, no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and Borrower shall so certify in writing;

(ii) As of the date of Borrower’s delivery of notice of its intent to exercise such option, and as of the initial Revolving Facility Termination Date, all representations and warranties of Borrower are true and correct in all material respects except to the extent of changes resulting from transactions permitted by the Loan Documents and except as previously disclosed in writing by the Borrower to Administrative Agent and approved by Administrative Agent in writing, which disclosures shall be deemed to amend the schedules and other disclosures delivered as contemplated in this Agreement (it being understood and agreed that any representation or warranty which by its terms is made as of a specified date shall be required to be true and correct only as of such specified date)and Borrower shall so certify in writing;

 

- 39 -


(iii) Borrower shall provide Administrative Agent with written notice of the Borrower’s intent to exercise such option at least forty-five (45) days prior to the initial Revolving Facility Termination Date; and

(iv) Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Revolving Lenders, along with Borrower’s notice of exercise of such option, an extension fee equal to 0.0625% of the then-current Outstanding Revolving Facility Amount.

2.24. LIBOR Rate Lending Unlawful; Inability to Determine Rate

(i) If any Lender shall determine (which determination shall, upon notice thereof to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, be conclusive and binding on the Borrower) that, after the date hereof, (i) the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any Law makes it unlawful, or (ii) any Governmental Authority asserts that it is unlawful, for such Lender to make or continue any Loan as, or to convert (if permitted pursuant to this Agreement) any Loan into, a LIBOR Loan, the obligations of such Lender to make, continue or convert into any such LIBOR Loan shall, upon such determination, be suspended until such Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist, and all outstanding LIBOR Loans payable to such Lender shall automatically convert (if conversion is permitted under this Agreement) into a Base Rate Loan, or be repaid (if no conversion is permitted) at the end of the then current LIBOR Interest Periods with respect thereto or sooner, if required by Law or such assertion.

(ii) If the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders determine that for any reason adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the LIBOR Rate for any requested LIBOR Interest Period with respect to a proposed LIBOR Loan, or that the LIBOR Rate for any requested LIBOR Interest Period with respect to a proposed LIBOR Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of funding such Loan, the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender. Thereafter, the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain such LIBOR Loan shall be suspended until the Administrative Agent (upon the instruction of the Required Lenders) revokes such notice. Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower may revoke any pending request for a borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of such LIBOR Loan or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a borrowing of a Base Rate Loan in the amount specified therein.

(iii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event the Administrative Agent and the Borrower determine in good faith that (A) the circumstances set forth in Section 2.24(ii) have arisen and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (B) Thomson Reuters or Bloomberg (or any Person that takes over the publication of the LIBOR Base Rate pursuant to the definition thereof) discontinues its administration and publication of interest settlement rates for deposits in Dollars, or (C) the supervisor for the administrator of the interest settlement rate described in Section 2.24(ii) or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which such interest settlement rate shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans, then the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall seek to jointly agree upon an alternate rate of interest to the LIBOR Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such

 

- 40 -


time, and the Administrative Agent and the Borrower shall amend this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be applicable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 8.2 hereof, such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Administrative Agent shall not have received, within five (5) Business Days of the date a copy of such amendment is provided to the Lenders, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such amendment. Until an alternate rate of interest shall be determined in accordance with this Section 2.24(iii), (x) any request that requests the conversion to, or continuation of any, LIBOR Loan shall be ineffective and any such LIBOR Loan shall be continued as or converted to, as the case may be, a Base Rate Loan, and (y) if any request is made for a LIBOR Loan, such Loan shall be made as a Base Rate Loan. If the alternate rate of interest determined pursuant to this Section 2.24(iii) shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement.

- 41 -


(ii) as of the date of issuance, no order, judgment or decree of any court, arbitrator or governmental authority shall purport by its terms to enjoin or restrain the Issuing Bank from issuing the requested Facility Letter of Credit and no law, rule or regulation applicable to the Issuing Bank and no request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any governmental authority with jurisdiction over the Issuing Bank shall prohibit or request that the Issuing Bank refrain from the issuance of Letters of Credit generally or the issuance of the requested Facility Letter or Credit in particular; and

(iii) there shall not exist any Default.

- 42 -


Request with respect to such Facility Letter of Credit given not later than the Business Day immediately preceding the Issuance Date, or (ii) written or telephonic notice from the Administrative Agent stating that the issuance of such Facility Letter of Credit would violate Section 2A.2. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2A.4, the Issuing Bank shall not be obligated to issue, amend, extend, renew or increase any Facility Letter of Credit at a time when any other Lender is a Defaulting Lender, unless the Issuing Bank is satisfied that the participation therein will otherwise be fully allocated to the Lenders that are Non-Defaulting Lenders consistent with Section 10.14 and the Defaulting Lender shall have no participation therein, except to the extent the Issuing Bank has entered into arrangements with the Borrower or such Defaulting Lender which are satisfactory to the Issuing Bank in its good faith determination to eliminate the Issuing Bank’s Fronting Exposure with respect to any such Defaulting Lender, including the delivery of cash collateral.

(c) The Issuing Bank shall give the Administrative Agent (who shall promptly notify Lenders) and Borrower written or telex notice, or telephonic notice confirmed promptly thereafter in writing, of the issuance of a Facility Letter of Credit (the “Issuance Notice”).

(d) The Issuing Bank shall not extend or amend any Facility Letter of Credit unless the requirements of this Section 2A.4 are met as though a new Facility Letter of Credit was being requested and issued.

2A.5 Reimbursement Obligations; Duties of Issuing Bank.

(a) The Issuing Bank shall promptly notify Borrower and the Administrative Agent (who shall promptly notify Lenders) of any draw under a Facility Letter of Credit. Any such draw shall not be deemed to be a default hereunder but shall constitute a Revolving Advance of the Facility in the amount of the Reimbursement Obligation with respect to such Facility Letter of Credit and shall bear interest from the date of the relevant drawing(s) under the pertinent Facility Letter of Credit at the Base Rate; provided that if a Default exists at the time of any such drawing(s), then Borrower shall reimburse the Issuing Bank for drawings under a Facility Letter of Credit issued by the Issuing Bank no later than the next succeeding Business Day after the payment by the Issuing Bank and until repaid such Reimbursement Obligation shall bear interest at the Default Rate.

(b) Any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Issuing Bank under or in connection with any Facility Letter of Credit, if taken or omitted in the absence of willful misconduct or gross negligence, shall not put the Issuing Bank under any resulting liability to any Lender or, provided that such Issuing Bank has complied with the procedures specified in Section 2A.4, relieve any Lender of its obligations hereunder to the Issuing Bank. In determining whether to pay under any Facility Letter of Credit, the Issuing Bank shall have no obligation relative to the Lenders other than to confirm that any documents required to be delivered under such Letter of Credit appear to have been delivered in compliance, and that they appear to comply on their face, with the requirements of such Letter of Credit.

2A.6 Participation.

(a) Immediately upon issuance by the Issuing Bank of any Facility Letter of Credit in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Article IIA, each Revolving Lender shall be deemed to have irrevocably and unconditionally purchased and received from the Issuing Bank, without recourse, representation or warranty, an undivided interest and participation equal to such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Percentage in such Facility Letter of Credit (including, without limitation, all obligations of Borrower with respect thereto) and all related rights hereunder. Each Revolving

 

- 43 -


Lender’s obligation to make further Revolving Loans to Borrower (other than any payments such Revolving Lender is required to make under subparagraph (b) below) or to purchase an interest from the Issuing Bank in any subsequent Facility Letters of Credit issued by the Issuing Bank on behalf of Borrower shall be reduced by such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Percentage of the undrawn portion of each Facility Letter of Credit outstanding.

(b) In the event that the Issuing Bank makes any payment under any Facility Letter of Credit and Borrower shall not have repaid such amount to the Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2A.7 hereof, the Issuing Bank shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent, which shall promptly notify each Revolving Lender of such failure, and each Revolving Lender shall promptly and unconditionally pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Percentage of the unreimbursed amount of such payment, and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay such amount to the Issuing Bank. A Revolving Lender’s payments of its Revolving Percentage of such Reimbursement Obligation as aforesaid shall be deemed to be a Revolving Loan by such Revolving Lender and shall constitute outstanding principal under such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Note. The failure of any Revolving Lender to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank its Revolving Percentage of the unreimbursed amount of any such payment shall not relieve any other Revolving Lender of its obligation hereunder to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Issuing Bank its Revolving Percentage of the unreimbursed amount of any payment on the date such payment is to be made, but no Revolving Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Revolving Lender to make available to the Administrative Agent its Revolving Percentage of the unreimbursed amount of any payment on the date such payment is to be made. Any Revolving Lender which fails to make any payment required pursuant to this Section 2A.6(b) shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender hereunder.

(c) Whenever the Issuing Bank receives a payment on account of a Reimbursement Obligation, including any interest thereon, the Issuing Bank shall promptly pay to the Administrative Agent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly (on the same day as received by the Administrative Agent if received prior to noon (Cleveland time) on such day and otherwise on the next Business Day) pay to each Revolving Lender which has funded its participating interest therein, in immediately available funds, an amount equal to such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Percentage thereof.

(d) Upon the request of the Administrative Agent or any Lender, the Issuing Bank shall furnish to such Administrative Agent or Lender copies of any Facility Letter of Credit to which the Issuing Bank is party and such other documentation as may reasonably be requested by the Administrative Agent or Lender.

(e) The obligations of a Revolving Lender to make payments to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank with respect to a Facility Letter of Credit shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, not subject to any counterclaim, set-off, qualification or exception whatsoever other than a failure of any such Issuing Bank to comply with the terms of this Agreement relating to the issuance of such Facility Letter of Credit, and such payments shall be made in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement under all circumstances.

2A.7 Payment of Reimbursement Obligations.

(a) Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank the amount of all Revolving Advances for Reimbursement Obligations, interest and other amounts payable to the Issuing Bank under or in connection with any Facility Letter of Credit when due, irrespective of any claim, set-off, defense or other right which Borrower may have at any time against any Issuing Bank or any other Person, under all circumstances, including without limitation any of the following circumstances:

(i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents;

(ii) the existence of any claim, setoff, defense or other right which Borrower may have at any time against a beneficiary named in a Facility Letter of Credit or any transferee of any Facility Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such transferee may be acting), the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank, any Lender, or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, any Facility Letter of Credit, the transactions contemplated herein or any unrelated transactions (including any underlying transactions between Borrower and the beneficiary named in any Facility Letter of Credit);

(iii) any draft, certificate or any other document presented under the Facility Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect of any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect;

(iv) the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance or observance of any of the terms of any of the Loan Documents; or

(v) the occurrence of any Default or Unmatured Default.

(b) In the event any payment by Borrower received by the Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent with respect to a Facility Letter of Credit and distributed by the Administrative Agent to the Revolving Lenders on account of their participations is thereafter set aside, avoided or recovered from the Administrative Agent or Issuing Bank in connection with any receivership, liquidation, reorganization or bankruptcy proceeding, each Revolving Lender which received such distribution shall, upon demand by the Administrative Agent, contribute such Lender’s Revolving Percentage of the amount set aside, avoided or recovered together with interest at the rate required to be paid by the Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent upon the amount required to be repaid by the Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent.

2A.8 Compensation for Facility Letters of Credit.

(a) Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable account of the Revolving Lenders (including the Issuing Bank), based upon the Revolving Lenders’ respective Revolving Percentages, a non-refundable per annum fee (the “Facility Letter of Credit Fee”) as a percentage of the face amount of each Facility Letter of Credit outstanding equal to the LIBOR Applicable Margin in effect from time to time hereunder while such Facility Letter of Credit is outstanding. The Facility Letter of Credit Fee relating to any Facility Letter of Credit shall accrue on a daily basis and shall be due and payable in advance on the Issuance Date of such Facility Letter of Credit and on the first Business Day of each calendar quarter following the issuance of such Facility Letter of Credit. The Administrative Agent shall promptly (on the same day as received by the Administrative Agent if received prior to noon (Cleveland time) on such day and otherwise on the next Business Day) remit such Facility Letter of Credit Fees, when paid, to the other Revolving Lenders in accordance with their Revolving Percentages thereof. Borrower shall not have any liability to any Revolving Lender for the failure of the Administrative Agent to promptly deliver funds to any such Revolving Lender and shall be deemed to have made all such payments on the date the respective payment is made by Borrower to the Administrative Agent, provided such payment is received by the time specified in Section 2.13 hereof.

 

- 45 -


(b) The Issuing Bank also shall have the right to receive solely for its own account an issuance fee equal to the greater of (A) $1,500 or (B) one-eighth of one percent (0.125%) per annum to be calculated on the face amount of each Facility Letter of Credit for the stated duration thereof, based on the actual number of days and using a 360-day year basis. The issuance fee shall be payable by Borrower on the Issuance Date for each such Facility Letter of Credit and on the date of any increase therein or extension thereof. The Issuing Bank shall also be entitled to receive its reasonable out-of-pocket costs and the Issuing Bank’s standard charges of issuing, amending and servicing Facility Letters of Credit and processing draws thereunder.

2A.9 Letter of Credit Collateral Account. Borrower hereby agrees that it will immediately upon the request of the Administrative Agent, establish a special collateral account (the “Letter of Credit Collateral Account”) at the Administrative Agent’s office at the address specified pursuant to Article XIII, in the name of Borrower but under the sole dominion and control of the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Revolving Lenders, and in which Borrower shall have no interest other than as set forth in Section 8.1. The Letter of Credit Collateral Account shall hold the deposits Borrower is required to make after a Default on account of any outstanding Facility Letters of Credit as described in Section 8.1. In addition to the foregoing, Borrower hereby grants to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Revolving Lenders, a security interest in and to the Letter of Credit Collateral Account and any funds that may hereafter be on deposit in such account, including income earned thereon. The Revolving Lenders acknowledge and agree that Borrower has no obligation to fund the Letter of Credit Collateral Account unless and until so required under Section 8.1 hereof.

ARTICLE III.

CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES

3.1. Yield Protection. Subject to the provisions of Section 3.6, if, on or after the date of this Agreement, the adoption of any law or any governmental or quasi-governmental rule, regulation, policy, guideline or directive (whether or not having the force of law), or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any governmental or quasi-governmental authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Lender or applicable Lending Installation with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency:

(i) subjects any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation party hereto to any Taxes, or changes the basis of taxation of payments (other than for Indemnified Taxes, Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes, and Connection Income Taxes) to any Lender in respect of its LIBOR Loans, or

(ii) imposes or increases or makes applicable any reserve, assessment, insurance charge, special deposit or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation, or

(iii) imposes any other condition the result of which is to increase the cost to any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation of making, funding or maintaining its LIBOR Loans, or reduces any amount receivable by any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation in connection with its LIBOR Loans, or requires any Lender or any applicable Lending Installation to make any payment calculated by reference to the amount of LIBOR Loans, by an amount deemed material by such Lender as the case may be,

 

- 46 -


and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender or applicable Lending Installation, as the case may be, of making or maintaining its LIBOR Loans or Commitment or to reduce the return received by such Lender or applicable Lending Installation in connection with such LIBOR Loans or Commitment, then, subject to the provisions of Section 3.6, Borrower shall pay such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such increased cost or reduction in amount received.

3.2. Changes in Capital Adequacy Regulations. If a Lender in good faith determines the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by such Lender, any Lending Installation of such Lender or any corporation controlling such Lender is increased as a result of a Change (as hereinafter defined), then, within 15 days of demand by such Lender, Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount necessary to compensate for any shortfall in the rate of return on the portion of such Lender’s capital which such Lender in good faith determines is attributable to this Agreement, its outstanding credit exposure hereunder or its obligation to make Loans hereunder (after taking into account such Lender’s policies as to capital adequacy). “Change” means (i) any change after the date of this Agreement in the Risk-Based Capital Guidelines (as hereinafter defined) or (ii) any adoption of or change in any other law, governmental or quasi-governmental rule, regulation, policy, guideline, interpretation, or directive (whether or not having the force of law) after the date of this Agreement which affects the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by any Lender or any Lending Installation or any corporation controlling any Lender. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines and directives promulgated thereunder shall be deemed to be a “Change”, regardless of the date enacted or adopted. “Risk-Based Capital Guidelines” means (i) the risk-based capital guidelines in effect in the United States on the date of this Agreement, including transition rules, and (ii) all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, regardless of the date enacted, adopted or issued.

3.3. Availability of Types of Advances. If any Lender in good faith determines that maintenance of any of its LIBOR Loans at a suitable Lending Installation would violate any applicable law, rule, regulation or directive, whether or not having the force of law, the Administrative Agent shall, with written notice to Borrower, suspend the availability of the affected Type of Advance and require any LIBOR Advances of the affected Type to be repaid; or if the Required Lenders in good faith determine that (i) deposits of a type or maturity appropriate to match fund LIBOR Advances are not available, the Administrative Agent shall, with written notice to Borrower, suspend the availability of the affected Type of Advance with respect to any LIBOR Advances made after the date of any such determination, or (ii) an interest rate applicable to a Type of Advance does not accurately reflect the cost of making a LIBOR Advance of such Type, then, if for any reason whatsoever the provisions of Section 3.1 are inapplicable, the Administrative Agent shall, with written notice to Borrower, suspend the availability of the affected Type of Advance with respect to any LIBOR Advances made after the date of any such determination. If Borrower is required to so repay a LIBOR Advance, Borrower may concurrently with such repayment borrow from the Lenders, in the amount of such repayment, a Base Rate Advance.

 

- 47 -


3.4. Funding Indemnification. If any payment of a LIBOR Advance occurs on a date which is not the last day of the applicable LIBOR Interest Period, whether because of acceleration, prepayment or otherwise, or a ratable LIBOR Advance is not made on the date specified by Borrower for any reason other than default by the Lenders or as a result of unavailability pursuant to Section 3.3, Borrower will indemnify each Lender for any loss or cost incurred by it resulting therefrom, including, without limitation, any loss or cost (incurred or expected to be incurred) in liquidating or employing deposits acquired to fund or maintain the LIBOR Advance and shall pay all such losses or costs within fifteen (15) days after written demand therefor.

3.5. Taxes.

(a) All payments by Borrower, Parent Guarantor and the Subsidiary Guarantors hereunder and under any of the other Loan Documents shall be made without setoff or counterclaim, and free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by Applicable Law. If any Applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Withholding Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the Borrower, Parent Guarantor or applicable Subsidiary Guarantor shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 3.5) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.

(b) Borrower, Parent Guarantor and the Subsidiary Guarantors shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.

(c) Borrower, Parent Guarantor and the Subsidiary Guarantors shall jointly and severally indemnify each Recipient, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 3.5) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error; provided that the determinations in such statement are made on a reasonable basis and in good faith.

(d) Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that Borrower, Parent Guarantor or a Subsidiary Guarantor has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of Borrower, Parent Guarantor and each Subsidiary Guarantor to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 12.2 relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this subsection.

 

- 48 -


(e) As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower, Parent Guarantor or any Subsidiary Guarantor to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 3.5, Borrower or such Guarantor shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(f)

(i) Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in the immediately following clauses (ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D)) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

(ii) Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that the Borrower is a U.S. Person:

(A) any Lender that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) of an executed IRS Form W-9 (or any successor form) certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;

(B) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), whichever of the following is applicable:

(I) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party (x) with respect to payments of interest under any Loan Document, an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) of an executed IRS Form W-8BEN, or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W-8BEN, or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “business profits” or “other income” article of such tax treaty;

 

- 49 -


(II) an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) of an executed IRS Form W-8ECI;

(III) in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN, or W-8BEN-E, as applicable; or

(IV) to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) of an executed IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN, or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-2 or Exhibit G-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;

(C) any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent) of any other form prescribed by Applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by Applicable Law to permit the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

(D) if a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by Applicable Law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by Applicable Law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (D), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

Each Lender agrees that if any form or certification it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such form or certification or promptly notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its legal inability to do so.

(g) If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 3.5 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 3.5), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 3.5 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of

 

- 50 -


such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this subsection (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this subsection, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this subsection the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund has not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This subsection shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it reasonably deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

(h) Each party’s obligations under this Section 3.5 shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.

(i) The obligations of the Borrower to the Lenders under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit (and of the Lenders to make payments to the Issuing Bank with respect to Letters of Credit and to the Swing Loan Lender with respect to Swing Loans) shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid and performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, under all circumstances whatsoever, including, without limitation, the following circumstances: (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement, any Letter of Credit or any of the other Loan Documents; (ii) any improper use which may be made of any Letter of Credit or any improper acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee of any Letter of Credit in connection therewith; (iii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or any right which the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or persons or entities for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting) or the Lenders (other than the defense of payment to the Lenders in accordance with the terms of this Agreement) or any other person, whether in connection with any Letter of Credit, this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any unrelated transaction; (iv) any draft, demand, certificate, statement or any other documents presented under any Letter of Credit proving to be insufficient, forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect whatsoever; (v) any breach of any agreement between the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates and any beneficiary or transferee of any Letter of Credit; (vi) any irregularity in the transaction with respect to which any Letter of Credit is issued, including any fraud by the beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit; (vii) payment by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a sight draft, demand, certificate or other document which does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, provided that such payment shall not have constituted gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the Issuing Bank as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction after the exhaustion of all applicable appeal periods; (viii) any non-application or misapplication by the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit of the proceeds of such Letter of Credit; (ix) the legality, validity, form, regularity or enforceability of the Letter of Credit; (x) the failure of any payment by the Issuing Bank to conform to the terms of a Letter of Credit (if, in the Issuing Bank’s good faith judgment, such payment is determined to be appropriate); (xi) the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance or observance of any of the terms of any of the Loan Documents; (xii) the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default; and (xiii) any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.

 

- 51 -


3.6. Lender Statements; Survival of Indemnity. If any Lender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to Sections 3.1, 3.2 or 3.5, Borrower shall not be required to pay the same unless they are the result of requirements imposed generally on lenders similar to such Lender and not the result of some specific reserve or similar requirement imposed on such Lender as a result of such Lender’s special circumstances. If any Lender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to Sections 3.1, 3.2 or 3.5, such Lender shall provide Borrower with not less than thirty (30) days written notice (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) specifying in reasonable detail the event by reason of which it has become so entitled and the additional amount required to fully compensate Lender for such additional cost or reduced amount; provided that Borrower is not required to compensate Lender pursuant to Sections 3.1, 3.2 or 3.5 for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than ninety (90) days prior to the date that such Lender notifies Borrower of the events giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefore. To the extent reasonably possible, each Lender shall designate an alternate Lending Installation with respect to its LIBOR Loans to reduce any liability of Borrower to such Lender under Sections 3.1, 3.2 and 3.5 or to avoid the unavailability of LIBOR Advances under Section 3.3, so long as such designation is not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, disadvantageous to such Lender. Such written statement shall set forth in reasonable detail the calculations upon which such Lender determined such amount and shall be final, conclusive and binding on Borrower in the absence of manifest error. Determination of amounts payable under such Sections in connection with a LIBOR Loan shall be calculated as though each Lender funded its LIBOR Loan through the purchase of a deposit of the type and maturity corresponding to the deposit used as a reference in determining the LIBOR Base Rate applicable to such Loan, whether in fact that is the case or not. Unless otherwise provided herein, the amount specified in the written statement of any Lender shall be payable on demand after receipt by Borrower of such written statement. The obligations of Borrower under Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.4 and 3.5 shall survive payment of the Obligations and termination of this Agreement.

If after such release pursuant to the foregoing sentence, (x) Borrower desires to add one or more additional Qualifying Unencumbered Properties to the Unencumbered Property Pool pursuant to and in accordance with Section 2.22(ii), the owner of such Qualifying Unencumbered Property shall not be required to deliver a Joinder to Administrative Agent unless such owner has outstanding Recourse Indebtedness or Guarantee Obligations (in which case such owner shall be required to deliver a Joinder and any such required Joinder shall be delivered not later than the date required under Section 2.22(ii)) or (y) an owner of an Unencumbered Property that is not a Subsidiary Guarantor (either because, pursuant to this Section 6.13, such owner was released or not previously required to deliver a Joinder) acquires outstanding Recourse Indebtedness or Guarantee Obligations (i) in the first, second or third fiscal quarter of the Consolidated Group, such owner shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a Joinder not later than 45 days after the close of such fiscal quarter, and (ii) in the fourth fiscal quarter of the Consolidated Group, such owner shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a Joinder not later than 90 days after the close of such fiscal quarter.

(ii) Liens imposed by law, such as carriers’, warehousemen’s and mechanics’ liens and other similar liens arising in the ordinary course of business which secure payment of obligations not more than 60 days past due or which are being contested in good faith by appropriate proceedings and for which adequate reserves shall have been set aside on its books;

(i) Extend the Revolving Facility Termination Date or the Term Facility Termination Date, or forgive all or any portion of the principal amount of any Loan or accrued interest thereon or of the Facility Letter of Credit Obligations or of the Facility Fee, reduce the Applicable Margins or the percentages used to calculate the Facility Fee (or modify any definition herein which would have the effect of reducing the Applicable Margins or such percentages) or the underlying interest rate options or extend the time of payment of any such principal, interest or fees.

No amendment of any provision of this Agreement relating to the Administrative Agent shall be effective without the written consent of the Administrative Agent.

8.3. Preservation of Rights. No delay or omission of the Lenders or the Administrative Agent to exercise any right under the Loan Documents shall impair such right or be construed to be a waiver of any Default or an acquiescence therein, and the making of a Loan notwithstanding the existence of a Default or the inability of Borrower to satisfy the conditions precedent to such Loan shall not constitute any waiver or acquiescence. Any single or partial exercise of any such right shall not preclude other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, and no waiver, amendment or other variation of the terms, conditions or provisions of the Loan Documents whatsoever shall be valid unless in writing signed by the Lenders required pursuant to Section 8.2, and then only to the extent in such writing specifically set forth. All remedies contained in the Loan Documents or by law afforded shall be cumulative and all shall be available to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders until the Obligations have been paid in full.

8.4. Application of Funds. After the acceleration of the Facility Obligations as provided for in Section 8.1 (or after the Facility Obligations have automatically become immediately due and payable and Borrower has been required to make a deposit in the Letter of Credit Collateral Account as set forth in Section 8.1), any amounts received on account of the Obligations shall be applied by the Administrative Agent in the following order:

(i) to payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting fees, indemnities, expenses and other amounts (including attorney costs and amounts payable under Article III) payable to the Administrative Agent in its capacity as such;

(ii) to payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting fees, indemnities and other amounts (other than principal and interest) payable to the Lenders (including fees, charges and disbursements of counsel to the respective Lenders and the Issuing Bank and amounts payable under Article III), ratably among them in proportion to the amounts described in this clause (ii) payable to them;

(iii) to payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting accrued and unpaid interest on the Loans, Facility Letter of Credit Reimbursement Obligations and other Obligations, ratably among the Lenders and the Issuing Bank in proportion to the respective amounts described in this clause (iii) payable to them;

(iv) to (A) payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting unpaid principal of the Loans and Facility Letter of Credit Reimbursement Obligations, (B) payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting unpaid Related Swap Obligations and (C) the deposit into the Letter of Credit Collateral Account of the undrawn amounts of Letters of Credit, ratably among such three categories of Obligations in proportion to their respective amounts and then within each such category ratably among those Lenders and Affiliates of Lenders holding the Obligations included in such category in proportion to the respective amounts held by them; and

(v) the balance, if any, after all of such Obligations have been indefeasibly paid in full or, in the case of the undrawn amounts of Letters of Credit, fully collateralized, to Borrower or as otherwise required by Law.

(iii) Certain Fees.

(A) Each Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive Facility Fees for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender only to extent allocable to the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Loans funded by it rather than the Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Commitment.

(B) Each Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive Facility Letter of Credit Fees for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender only to the extent allocable to its applicable Percentage of the stated amount of Facility Letters of Credit for which amounts are being held by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 10.14(a)(ii) for application to the obligations of such Defaulting Lender.

No reallocation hereunder shall constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder against a Defaulting Lender arising from that Lender having become a Defaulting Lender, including any claim of a Non-Defaulting Lender as a result of such Non-Defaulting Lender’s increased exposure following such reallocation.

 

- 84 -


(b) Defaulting Lender Cure.

In addition to, and without limitation of, any rights of the Lenders under applicable law, if Borrower becomes insolvent, however evidenced, or any Default occurs, any and all deposits (including all account balances, whether provisional or final and whether or not collected or available) and any other Indebtedness at any time held or owing by any Lender or any of its Affiliates to or for the credit or account of Borrower may be offset and applied toward the payment of the Obligations owing to such Lender at any time prior to the date that such Default has been fully cured, whether or not the Obligations, or any part hereof, shall then be due.

11.2. Ratable Payments. If any Lender, whether by setoff or otherwise, has payment made to it upon its Loans (other than payments received pursuant to Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.4 or 3.5) in a greater proportion than that received by any other Lender, such Lender agrees, promptly upon demand, to purchase a portion of the Loans held by the other Lenders so that after such purchase each Lender will hold its ratable proportion of Loans. If any Lender, whether in connection with setoff or amounts which might be subject to setoff or otherwise, receives collateral or other protection for its Obligations or such amounts which may be subject to setoff, such Lender agrees, promptly upon demand, to take such action necessary such that all Lenders share in the benefits of such collateral ratably in proportion to their Loans. In case any such payment is disturbed by legal process, or otherwise, appropriate further adjustments shall be made.

ARTICLE XII.

BENEFIT OF AGREEMENT; ASSIGNMENTS; PARTICIPATIONS

12.1. Successors and Assigns. The terms and provisions of the Loan Documents shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of Borrower and the Lenders and their respective successors and assigns, except that (i) Borrower shall not have the right to assign its rights or obligations under the Loan Documents and (ii) any assignment by any Lender must be made in compliance with

 

- 85 -


Section 12.3. The parties to this Agreement acknowledge that clause (ii) of this Section 12.1 relates only to absolute assignments and does not prohibit assignments creating security interests, including, without limitation, (x) any pledge or assignment by any Lender of all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement and any Note to a Federal Reserve Bank or (y) in the case of a Lender which is a fund, any pledge or assignment of all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement and any Note to its trustee in support of its obligations to its trustee; provided, however, that no such pledge or assignment creating a security interest shall release the transferor Lender from its obligations hereunder unless and until the parties thereto have complied with the provisions of Section 12.3. The Administrative Agent may treat the Person which made any Loan or which holds any Note as the owner thereof for all purposes hereof unless and until such Person complies with Section 12.3; provided, however, that the Administrative Agent may in its discretion (but shall not be required to) follow instructions from the Person which made any Loan or which holds any Note to direct payments relating to such Loan or Note to another Person. Any assignee of the rights to any Loan or any Note agrees by acceptance of such assignment to be bound by all the terms and provisions of the Loan Documents. Any request, authority or consent of any Person, who at the time of making such request or giving such authority or consent is the owner of the rights to any Loan (whether or not a Note has been issued in evidence thereof), shall be conclusive and binding on any subsequent holder or assignee of the rights to such Loan.

12.2. Participations.

(i) Permitted Participants; Effect. Any Lender may, in the ordinary course of its business and in accordance with applicable law, at any time sell to one or more banks, financial institutions, pension funds, or any other funds or entities (“Participants”) participating interests in any Loan owing to such Lender, any Note held by such Lender, any Commitment of such Lender or any other interest of such Lender under the Loan Documents. In the event of any such sale by a Lender of participating interests to a Participant, such Lender’s obligations under the Loan Documents shall remain unchanged, such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, such Lender shall remain the holder of any such Note for all purposes under the Loan Documents, all amounts payable by Borrower under this Agreement shall be determined as if such Lender had not sold such participating interests, and Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under the Loan Documents.

(ii) Voting Rights. Each Lender shall retain the sole right to approve, without the consent of any Participant, any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of the Loan Documents other than any amendment, modification or waiver with respect to any Loan or Commitment in which such Participant has an interest which would require consent of all the Lenders pursuant to the terms of Section 8.2 or of any other Loan Document.

(iii) Participant Register. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any participant or any information relating to a participant’s interest in any Commitments, Loans, or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such Commitment, Loan, or other obligation is in registered form under Section

 

- 86 -


5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. The Participant Register shall be available for inspection by Borrower and Administrative Agent, at any reasonable time and upon reasonable prior notice. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent (in its capacity as Administrative Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.

(iv) Benefit of Setoff. Borrower agrees that each Participant which has previously advised Borrower in writing of its purchase of a participation in a Lender’s interest in its Loans shall be deemed to have the right of setoff provided in Section 11.1 in respect of its participating interest in amounts owing under the Loan Documents to the same extent as if the amount of its participating interest were owing directly to it as a Lender under the Loan Documents. Each Lender shall retain the right of setoff provided in Section 11.1 with respect to the amount of participating interests sold to each Participant, provided that such Lender and Participant may not each setoff amounts against the same portion of the Obligations, so as to collect the same amount from Borrower twice. The Lenders agree to share with each Participant, and each Participant, by exercising the right of setoff provided in Section 11.1, agrees to share with each Lender, any amount received pursuant to the exercise of its right of setoff, such amounts to be shared in accordance with Section 11.2 as if each Participant were a Lender.

(v) Benefit of Certain Provisions. Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 3.1, 3.2 and 3.5 (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Sections 3.5(f) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 3.5(f) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment; provided that such Participant shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 3.5, with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Change in Law that occurs after the Participant acquired the applicable participation.

12.3. Assignments.

(i) Permitted Assignments. Any Lender may, in the ordinary course of its business and in accordance with applicable law, at any time assign to any Eligible Assignee all or any portion (greater than or equal to $5,000,000 for each assignee, so long as the hold position of the assigning Lender is not less than $5,000,000) of its rights and obligations under the Loan Documents. Such assignment shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit D hereto or in such other form as may be agreed to by the parties thereto. The consent of the Administrative Agent shall be required prior to an assignment becoming effective with respect to an Eligible Assignee which is not a Lender or an Affiliate thereof. Such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

(ii) Effect; Effective Date. Upon (i) delivery to the Administrative Agent of a notice of assignment, substantially in the form attached as Exhibit “I” to Exhibit D hereto (a “Notice of Assignment”), together with any consents required by Section 12.3(i), and (ii) payment of a $3,500 fee by the assignor or assignee to the Administrative Agent for processing such assignment, such assignment shall become effective on the effective date

 

- 87 -


specified in such Notice of Assignment. The Notice of Assignment shall contain a representation by the Eligible Assignee to the effect that none of the consideration used to make the purchase of the Commitment and Loans under the applicable assignment agreement are “plan assets” as defined under ERISA and that the rights and interests of the Eligible Assignee in and under the Loan Documents will not be “plan assets” under ERISA. On and after the effective date of such assignment, subject to acceptance and recording thereof by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 12.3(iii), from and after the effective date specified in such Notice of Assignment, such Eligible Assignee shall for all purposes be a Lender party to this Agreement and any other Loan Document executed by the Lenders and shall have all the rights and obligations of a Lender under the Loan Documents, to the same extent as if it were an original party hereto, and no further consent or action by Borrower, the Lenders or the Administrative Agent shall be required to release the transferor Lender, and the transferor Lender shall automatically be released on the effective date of such assignment, with respect to the percentage of the Aggregate Commitment and Loans assigned to such Eligible Assignee. Upon the consummation of any assignment to a Eligible Assignee pursuant to this Section 12.3(ii), the transferor Lender, the Administrative Agent and Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements so that replacement Notes are issued to such transferor Lender and new Notes or, as appropriate, replacement Notes, are issued to such Eligible Assignee, in each case in principal amounts reflecting their Commitment, as adjusted pursuant to such assignment.

(iii) Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of Borrower, shall maintain at one of its U.S. offices a copy of each Notice of Assignment delivered to it and shall record in its records the names and addresses of such Eligible Assignees as Lenders hereunder and the Commitments of, and principal amounts (and stated interest) of the Loans owing to, such Eligible Assignee as a Lender pursuant to the terms hereof (the “Register”). The Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and Borrower, Administrative Agent and Lenders shall treat each Eligible Assignee whose name is so recorded as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. This Section 12.3(iii) shall be construed so that the Obligations are at all times maintained in “registered form” within the meaning of Sections 163(f), 871(h)(2) and 881(c)(2) of the Code and any related regulations (and any other relevant or successor provisions of the Code or the regulations promulgated thereunder). The Register shall be available for inspection by Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and upon reasonable prior notice.

12.4. Dissemination of Information. Borrower authorizes each Lender to disclose to any Participant or Eligible Assignee or any other Person acquiring an interest in the Loan Documents by operation of law (each a “Transferee”) and any prospective Transferee any and all information in such Lender’s possession concerning the creditworthiness of Borrower and its Subsidiaries, subject to Section 9.11 of this Agreement.

12.5. Tax Treatment. If any interest in any Loan Document is transferred to any Transferee which is organized under the laws of any jurisdiction other than the United States or any State thereof, the transferor Lender shall cause such Transferee, concurrently with the effectiveness of such transfer, to comply with the provisions of Section 3.5.

ASSIGNMENT AGREEMENT

This Assignment Agreement (this “Assignment Agreement”) between _______ (the “Assignor”) and ____________________(the “Assignee”) is dated as of __________. The parties hereto agree as follows:

1. PRELIMINARY STATEMENT. The Assignor is a party to a Credit Agreement (which, as it may be amended, modified, renewed or extended from time to time is herein called the “Credit Agreement”) described in Item 1 of Schedule 1 attached hereto (“Schedule 1”). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings attributed to them in the Credit Agreement.

2. ASSIGNMENT AND ASSUMPTION. The Assignor hereby sells and assigns to the Assignee, and the Assignee hereby purchases and assumes from the Assignor, an interest in and to the Assignor’s rights and obligations under the Credit Agreement such that after giving effect to such assignment the Assignee shall have purchased pursuant to this Assignment Agreement the percentage interest specified in Item 3 of Schedule 1 of all outstanding rights and obligations under the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents. The Revolving Commitment and Term Commitment (or Loans, if the applicable Commitment has been terminated) purchased by the Assignee hereunder is set forth in Item 4 of Schedule 1.

3. EFFECTIVE DATE. The effective date of this Assignment Agreement (the “Effective Date”) shall be the later of the date specified in Item 5 of Schedule 1 or two (2) Business Days (or such shorter period agreed to by the Administrative Agent) after a Notice of Assignment substantially in the form of Exhibit “I” attached hereto has been delivered to the Administrative Agent. Such Notice of Assignment must include the consent of the Administrative Agent required by Section 12.3.1 of the Credit Agreement. In no event will the Effective Date occur if the payments required to be made by the Assignee to the Assignor on the Effective Date under Sections 4 and 5 hereof are not made on the proposed Effective Date. The Assignor will notify the Assignee of the proposed Effective Date no later than the Business Day prior to the proposed Effective Date. As of the Effective Date, (i) the Assignee shall have the rights and obligations of a Lender under the Loan Documents with respect to the rights and obligations assigned to the Assignee hereunder and (ii) the Assignor shall relinquish its rights and be released from its corresponding obligations under the Loan Documents with respect to the rights and obligations assigned to the Assignee hereunder.

4. PAYMENTS OBLIGATIONS. On and after the Effective Date, the Assignee shall be entitled to receive from the Administrative Agent all payments of principal, interest and fees with respect to the interest assigned hereby. The Assignee shall advance funds directly to the Administrative Agent with respect to all Loans and reimbursement payments made on or after the Effective Date with respect to the interest assigned hereby. [In consideration for the sale and assignment of Loans hereunder, (i) the Assignee shall pay the Assignor, on the Effective Date, an amount equal to the principal amount of the portion of all Base Rate Loans assigned to the Assignee hereunder and (ii) with respect to each LIBOR Loan made by the Assignor and assigned to the Assignee hereunder which is outstanding on the Effective Date, (a) on the last day of the LIBOR Interest Period therefor or (b) on such earlier date agreed to by the Assignor and the Assignee or (c) on the date on which any such LIBOR Loan either becomes due (by acceleration or otherwise) or is prepaid (the date as described in the foregoing clauses (a), (b) or (c) being hereinafter referred to as the “LIBOR Rate Due Date”), the Assignee shall pay the Assignor an amount equal to the principal amount of the portion of such LIBOR

 

D-1


Loan assigned to the Assignee which is outstanding on the LIBOR Rate Due Date. If the Assignor and the Assignee agree that the applicable LIBOR Rate Due Date for such LIBOR Loan shall be the Effective Date, they shall agree, solely for purposes of dividing interest paid by Borrower on such LIBOR Loan, to an alternate interest rate applicable to the portion of such Loan assigned hereunder for the period from the Effective Date to the end of the related LIBOR Interest Period (the “Agreed Interest Rate”) and any interest received by the Assignee in excess of the Agreed Interest Rate, with respect to such LIBOR Loan for such period, shall be remitted to the Assignor. [In the event interest for any period from the Effective Date to but not including the LIBOR Rate Due Date is not paid when due by Borrower with respect to any LIBOR Loan sold by the Assignor to the Assignee hereunder, the Assignee shall pay to the Assignor interest for such period on the portion of such LIBOR Loan sold by the Assignor to the Assignee hereunder at the applicable rate provided by the Credit Agreement.] In the event a prepayment of any LIBOR Loan which is existing on the Effective Date and assigned by the Assignor to the Assignee hereunder occurs after the Effective Date but before the applicable LIBOR Rate Due Date, the Assignee shall remit to the Assignor any excess of the funding indemnification amount paid by Borrower under Section 3.4 of the Credit Agreement on account of such prepayment with respect to the portion of such LIBOR Loan assigned to the Assignee hereunder over the amount which would have been paid if such prepayment amount were calculated based on the Agreed Interest Rate and only covered the portion of the LIBOR Interest Period after the Effective Date. The Assignee will promptly remit to the Assignor (i) the portion of any principal payments assigned hereunder and received from the Administrative Agent with respect to any LIBOR Loan prior to its LIBOR Rate Due Date and (ii) any amounts of interest on Loans and fees received from the Administrative Agent which relate to the portion of the Loans assigned to the Assignee hereunder for periods prior to the Effective Date, in the case of Base Rate Loans or fees, or the LIBOR Rate Due Date, in the case of LIBOR Loans, and not previously paid by the Assignee to the Assignor.]* In the event that either party hereto receives any payment to which the other party hereto is entitled under this Assignment Agreement, then the party receiving such amount shall promptly remit it to the other party hereto.

*Each Assignor may insert its standard payment provisions in lieu of the payment terms included in this Exhibit.

5. FEES PAYABLE BY THE ASSIGNEE. The Assignee shall pay to the Assignor a fee on each day on which a payment of interest or facility fees is made under the Credit Agreement with respect to the amounts assigned to the Assignee hereunder (other than a payment of interest or facility fees attributable to the period prior to the Effective Date or, in the case of LIBOR Loans, the Payment Date, which the Assignee is obligated to deliver to the Assignor pursuant to Section 4 hereof). The amount of such fee shall be the difference between (i) the interest or fee, as applicable, paid with respect to the amounts assigned to the Assignee hereunder and (ii) the interest or fee, as applicable, which would have been paid with respect to the amounts assigned to the Assignee hereunder if each interest rate was calculated at the rate of ___% rather than the actual percentage used to calculate the interest rate paid by Borrower or if the Facility Fee was calculated at the rate of ____% rather than the actual percentage used to calculate the Facility Fee paid by Borrower, as applicable. In addition, the Assignee agrees to pay ___% of the fee required to be paid to the Administrative Agent in connection with this Assignment Agreement.

6. REPRESENTATIONS OF THE ASSIGNOR; LIMITATIONS ON THE ASSIGNOR’S LIABILITY.
