Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

Refinancing of Credit Facilities
On November 19, 2018, Vista Outdoor Inc. (“Vista”) completed a refinancing of its existing senior secured credit facilities consisting of a $200 million revolving credit facility and a $400 million term loan A (collectively, the “Existing Credit Facilities”), under that certain Amended and Restated Credit Agreement dated as of April 1, 2016, (as amended by that certain First Amendment, dated as of May 9, 2017, as amended by that certain Second Amendment, dated as of May 14, 2018 and as further amended, modified, extended, restated, replaced, or supplemented prior to the date hereof, the “Existing Credit Agreement”), among Vista, the lenders from time to time party thereto and Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent, by entering into new credit facilities (collectively, the “New Credit Facilities”) consisting of a (a) $450,000,000 senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility (the “ABL Revolving Credit Facility”), comprised of $20,000,000 in first-in, last-out (“FILO”) revolving credit commitments and $430,000,000 in non-FILO revolving credit commitments, (b) $109,343,000 senior secured asset-based term loan facility (the “Term Loan Facility”) and (c) $40,000,000 junior secured term loan facility (the “Junior Term Loan Facility”).

New Credit Facilities
To effect the refinancing, Vista entered into (a) an Asset-Based Revolving Credit Agreement dated as of November 19, 2018 (the “ABL Credit Agreement”), by and among Vista, the Additional Borrowers from time to time party thereto, the lenders from time to time party thereto, the L/C issuers from time to time party thereto and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “ABL Agent”), (b) a Term Loan Credit Agreement dated as of November 19, 2018 (the “Term Loan Credit Agreement”), by and among Vista, the lenders from time to time party thereto and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Term Loan Agent”), and (c) a Term Loan Credit Agreement dated as of November 19, 2018 (the “Junior Term Loan Credit Agreement”, and together with the ABL Credit Agreement and the Term Loan Credit Agreement, the “Credit Agreements”, and each a “Credit Agreement”), by and among Vista, the lenders from time to time party thereto and GACP Finance Co., LLC, as administrative agent (in such capacity, the “Junior Term Loan Agent”). The Existing Credit Facilities under the Existing Credit Agreement were replaced with the New Credit Facilities. Letters of credit outstanding under the Existing Credit Agreement were either (a) deemed to have been issued under the ABL Credit Agreement or (b) cash collateralized.

The New Credit Facilities each have a scheduled maturity date of November 19, 2023, subject to a customary springing maturity in respect of Vista’s Senior Notes due 2023 (the “Maturity Date”). The (a) loans under the Term Loan Facility are subject to quarterly principal repayments of $4,833,750 on the first business day of each January, April, July and October beginning January 19, 2019, with the remaining balance due on the Maturity Date and (b) FILO commitments under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility are subject to reductions of $1,666,667 on the first business day of each fiscal quarter beginning on April 1, 2019. Any outstanding revolving loans under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility will be payable in full on the Maturity Date. There are no scheduled principal payments under the Junior Term Loan Facility, which will be payable in full on the Maturity Date. In addition, each Credit Agreement provides for mandatory prepayments of loans outstanding under such Credit Agreement under certain circumstances as described therein. Voluntary prepayments are permitted under (a) each of the ABL Revolving Credit Facility and the Term Loan Credit Facility without premium or penalty and (b) the Junior Term Loan Credit Facility, subject to a prepayment premium which varies depending on the date of any such prepayment.
 
The ABL Credit Agreement permits Vista to utilize up to $75,000,000 of the ABL Revolving Credit Facility for the issuance of letters of credit and up to $60,000,000 for swing line loans.  Vista has the option to increase the amount of the ABL Revolving Credit Facility in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed the sum of (x) $150,000,000 and (y) the amount of any reductions in FILO revolving credit commitments since November 19, 2018 to the extent that any one or more lenders, whether or not currently party to the ABL Credit Agreement, commits to be a lender for such amount.

Borrowings under the ABL Credit Agreement bear interest at a rate equal to, in the case of (a) non-FILO revolving credit loans, either the sum of a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.75% to 1.25% or the sum of a LIBO rate plus a margin ranging from 1.75% to 2.25% and (b) FILO revolving credit loans, either the sum of a base rate plus a margin ranging from 1.75% to 2.25% or the sum of a LIBO rate plus a margin ranging from 2.75% to 3.25%, in each case, with either such margin varying according to Vista’s Average Excess Availability under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility. The initial margin under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility is, in the case of (a) non-FILO revolving credit loans, 1.25% for base rate





loans and 2.25% for LIBO rate loans and (b) FILO revolving credit loans, 2.25% for base rate loans and 3.25% for LIBO rate loans. Vista is also required to pay an unused fee in respect of unused commitments under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility, if any, at a rate of 0.25% per annum. The initial margin under the Term Loan Credit Facility is 2.75% for base rate loans and 3.75% for LIBO rate loans. The applicable rate under the Junior Term Loan Credit Facility is, (a) prior to the date that is five months after November 19, 2018, 7.00% for base rate loans and 8.00% for LIBO rate loans, (b) from and after such date, 8.00% for base rate loans and 9.00% for LIBO rate loans.

The aggregate amount of loans permitted to be made to the Borrowers under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility may not exceed a line cap consisting of the lesser of (a) the aggregate amount of commitments or (b) a borrowing base consisting of the sum of specified percentages of eligible receivables, eligible inventory, the lesser of (i) certain unrestricted cash and (ii) $60,000,000 and the lesser of (i) the FILO Borrowing Base and (ii) the Maximum FILO Amount, minus certain availability reserves.

Substantially all domestic tangible and intangible assets of Vista and its domestic subsidiaries are pledged as collateral to secure the obligations under each of the Credit Agreements. The holders of loans and other obligations under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility have a first priority security interest in respect of accounts, receivables and cash and cash equivalents (other than any of the foregoing to the extent identified as proceeds of Term Loan Priority Collateral (as hereinafter defined)), deposit accounts, securities accounts, commodities accounts, inventory, intercompany debt owing to Vista or its domestic subsidiaries, certain tax refunds, certain insurance proceeds and certain real property, along with certain related assets (collectively, “ABL Priority Collateral”) and a third priority security interest in the Term Loan Priority Collateral (hereinafter defined). The holders of loans and other obligations under the Term Loan Credit Facility have a first priority security interest in respect of equipment, fixtures, intellectual property, certain investment property, along with certain other assets not constituting ABL Priority Collateral (collectively, “Term Loan Priority Collateral”) and a second priority security interest in the ABL Priority Collateral. The holders of loans and other obligations under the Junior Term Loan Credit Facility have a second priority security interest in the Term Loan Priority Collateral and a third priority security interest in the ABL Priority Collateral.

Each Credit Agreement contains customary covenants limiting the ability of Vista and its subsidiaries to, among other things, pay cash dividends, incur debt or liens, redeem or repurchase Vista stock, enter into transactions with affiliates, make investments, merge or consolidate with others or dispose of assets.  In addition, the ABL Credit Agreement contains financial covenants requiring Vista to (a) maintain Excess Availability under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility of $45,000,000 at all times before all amounts owing under the Term Loan Facility and the Junior Term Loan Facility have been paid in full (the “Term Obligations Payment Date”), (b) maintain a Consolidated Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of not less than 1.15:1.00 for any fiscal quarter beginning with the fiscal quarter ending on March 31, 2019 and until the fiscal quarter ending immediately prior to or on the Term Obligations Payment Date and (c) maintain a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.00:1.00 for any fiscal quarter ending after the Term Obligations Payment Date. The Term Loan Credit Agreement and the Junior Term Loan Credit Agreement each contain financial covenants requiring Vista to (a) maintain Excess Availability under the ABL Revolving Credit Facility of $45,000,000 and (b) maintain a consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio of not less than 1.15:1.00 for any fiscal quarter beginning with the fiscal quarter ending on March 31, 2019. If Vista does not comply with the covenants in any of the Credit Agreements, the lenders may, subject to customary cure rights, require the immediate payment of all amounts outstanding under each of the New Credit Facilities.

The foregoing description of the New Credit Facilities is qualified in its entirety by reference to the actual terms of each Credit Agreement. Capitalized terms used but not otherwise defined herein have the meanings assigned to them in the ABL Credit Agreement, the Term Loan Credit Agreement or the Junior Term Loan Credit Agreement, as applicable.

(ii)    Making of Swing Loans. So long as the aggregate amount of Swing Loans made since the last Settlement Date, minus all payments or other amounts applied to Swing Loans since the last Settlement Date, plus the amount of any requested Swing Loan does not exceed $60,000,000, the Swing Lender shall make a Revolving Credit Loan (any such Revolving Credit Loan made by the Swing Lender pursuant to this Section 2.02(a)(ii) being referred to as a "Swing Loan") available to any Borrower on the funding date applicable thereto by transferring immediately available funds in the amount of such Borrowing to the Designated Account or such other Deposit Account or Securities Account of the applicable Borrower identified by the Parent Borrower. Each Swing Loan shall be deemed to be a Revolving Credit Loan hereunder and shall be subject to all the terms and conditions (including Article IV) applicable to other Revolving Credit Loans, except that all payments (including interest) on any Swing Loan shall be payable to the Swing Lender solely for its own account. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.02(f), the Swing Lender shall not make and shall not be obligated to make any Swing Loan if the Swing Lender has actual knowledge that (A) one or more of the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article IV will not be satisfied on the requested date of such Borrowing, or (B) after giving effect to the requested Borrowing, the Revolver Usage would exceed the Excess Availability on such date. Other than as set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, the Swing Lender shall not be required to determine whether the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article IV have been satisfied on the applicable funding date prior to making any Swing Loan. The Swing Loans shall bear interest at the rate applicable from time to time to Revolving Credit Loans that are Base Rate Loans.
(b)    In the event of a Committed Loan Notice for a Eurodollar Rate Loan or a Base Rate Loan (unless in the case of a Base Rate Loan the Swing Lender has determined to make a Swing Loan in lieu of such Base Rate Loan), then following receipt of such a Committed Loan Notice, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender of the amount of its Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans, and if no timely notice of a conversion or continuation is provided by the applicable Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender of the details of any automatic conversion to Base Rate Loans described in Section 2.02(a). Each Lender shall make the amount of its Revolving Credit Loan available to the Administrative Agent in

-60-



immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent's Account not later than (x) 10:00 a.m., in the case of Eurodollar Rate Loans, and (y) 11:00 a.m., in the case of Base Rate Loans, on the Business Day specified in the applicable Committed Loan Notice. Upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 4.02 (and, if such Borrowing is the Initial Credit Extension, Section 4.01), the Administrative Agent shall make all funds so received available to the applicable Borrower in like funds as received by the Administrative Agent either by (i) crediting the account of such Borrower on the books of the Administrative Agent with the amount of such funds or (ii) wire transfer of such funds to the Designated Account or to such other Deposit Account or Securities Account of the applicable Borrower identified by the Parent Borrower.
(c)    Except as otherwise provided herein, a Eurodollar Rate Loan may be continued or converted only on the last day of an Interest Period for such Eurodollar Rate Loan. During the existence of an Event of Default, no Revolving Credit Loans may be requested as, converted to or continued as Eurodollar Rate Loans without the consent of the Required Lenders.
(d)    The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the applicable Borrower and the Lenders of the interest rate applicable to any Interest Period for Eurodollar Rate Loans upon determination of such interest rate. The determination of the Eurodollar Rate by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. At any time that Base Rate Loans are outstanding, the Administrative Agent shall notify the applicable Borrower and the Lenders of any change in Wells Fargo Bank's prime rate used in determining the Base Rate promptly following the public announcement of such change.
(e)    After giving effect to all Borrowings, all conversions of Revolving Credit Loans from one Type to the other, and all continuations of Revolving Credit Loans as the same Type, there shall not be more than 10 Interest Periods in effect unless the Administrative Agent otherwise agrees.
(f)    Protective Advances and Optional Overadvances.
(i)    Any contrary provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document notwithstanding (but subject to Section 2.02(f)(iv)), at any time (A) after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Default or an Event of Default or (B) that any of the other applicable conditions precedent set forth in Section 4.02 are not satisfied, the Administrative Agent is hereby authorized by the Borrowers and the Lenders, from time to time to make Revolving Credit Loans to, or for the benefit of, any Borrower on behalf of the Lenders, in each case that the Administrative Agent in its Permitted Discretion deems necessary or desirable (1) to preserve or protect the Collateral, or any portion thereof, (2) to enhance the likelihood of repayment of the Obligations (other than the Bank Product Obligations) or (3) to pay any other amount chargeable to any Borrower pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and other sums payable under the Loan Documents (the Revolving Credit Loans described in this Section 2.02(f)(i) shall be referred to as "Protective Advances"). The Administrative Agent’s authorization to make Protective Advances may be revoked at any time by the Required Lenders delivering written notice of such revocation to the Administrative Agent. Any such revocation shall become effective prospectively upon the Administrative Agent's receipt thereof.

-61-



(ii)    Any contrary provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document notwithstanding, the Lenders hereby authorize the Administrative Agent or the Swing Lender, as applicable, and either the Administrative Agent or the Swing Lender, as applicable, may, but is not obligated to, intentionally continue to make Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans) to any Borrower notwithstanding that an Overadvance exists or would be created thereby, subject to Section 2.02(f)(iv). In the event the Administrative Agent obtains actual knowledge that the Revolver Usage exceeds the amounts permitted by this Section 2.02(f), regardless of the amount of, or reason for, such excess, the Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders as soon as practicable (and prior to making any (or any additional) intentional Overadvances (except for and excluding amounts charged to the Loan Account for interest, fees, or Lender Group Expenses) unless the Administrative Agent determines that prior notice would result in imminent harm to the Collateral or its value, in which case the Administrative Agent may make such Overadvances and provide notice as promptly as practicable thereafter), and the Lenders with Commitments thereupon shall, together with the Administrative Agent, jointly determine the terms of arrangements that shall be implemented with the Borrowers intended to eliminate such Overadvances within a reasonable time. In such circumstances, if any Lender with a Commitment objects to the proposed terms of reduction or repayment of any Overadvance, the terms of reduction or repayment thereof shall be implemented according to the determination of the Required Lenders. In any event any Overadvance pursuant to this Section 2.02(f)(ii) remains outstanding for more than 60 days, unless otherwise agreed to by the Required Lenders, the Borrowers shall promptly repay Revolving Credit Loans in an amount sufficient to eliminate all such Overadvances. The foregoing provisions are meant for the benefit of the Lenders and the Administrative Agent and are not meant for the benefit of the Borrowers, which shall continue to be bound by the provisions of Section 2.05(b). The Administrative Agent's and the Swing Lender's authorization to make intentional Overadvances may be revoked at any time by the Required Lenders delivering written notice of such revocation to the Administrative Agent. Any such revocation shall become effective prospectively upon the Administrative Agent's receipt thereof.
(iii)    Each Extraordinary Advance shall be deemed to be a Revolving Credit Loan hereunder, except that no Extraordinary Advance shall be eligible to be a Eurodollar Rate Loan. Prior to Settlement of any Extraordinary Advance, all payments with respect thereto, including interest thereon, shall be payable to the Administrative Agent solely for its own account. Each Lender shall be obligated to settle with the Administrative Agent as provided in Section 2.02(g) for the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of any Extraordinary Advance. The Extraordinary Advances shall be repayable on demand, constitute Obligations hereunder, and bear interest at the rate applicable from time to time to Revolving Credit Loans that are Base Rate Loans.
(iv)    Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document to the contrary, (A) the aggregate amount of all Protective Advances and Overadvances (each, an "Extraordinary Advance") outstanding at any one time shall not exceed 10% of the Borrowing Base and (B) no Extraordinary Advance may be made by the Administrative Agent if such Extraordinary Advance would cause (1) the aggregate

-62-



Revolver Usage to exceed the Aggregate Commitments or (2) any Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Revolver Usage to exceed such Lender's Commitments.
(g)    Settlement. It is agreed that each Lender's funded portion of the Revolving Credit Loans is intended by the Lenders to equal, at all times, such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans. Such agreement notwithstanding, the Administrative Agent, the Swing Lender and the other Lenders agree (which agreement shall not be for the benefit of the Borrowers) that in order to facilitate the administration of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, settlement among the Lenders as to the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances) shall take place on a periodic basis in accordance with the following provisions:
(i)    The Administrative Agent shall request settlement ("Settlement") with the Lenders on a weekly basis, or on a more frequent basis if so determined by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion (A) on behalf of the Swing Lender, with respect to the outstanding Swing Loans, (B) for itself, with respect to the outstanding Extraordinary Advances and (C) with respect to any Loan Party's or any of their respective Subsidiaries' payments or other amounts received, in each case by notifying the Lenders by facsimile, telephone or other similar form of transmission, of such requested Settlement, no later than 2:00 p.m. on the Business Day immediately prior to the date of such requested Settlement (the "Settlement Date"). Such notice of a Settlement Date shall include a summary statement of the amount of outstanding Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances) for the period since the prior Settlement Date. Subject to the terms and conditions contained herein (including Section 2.17): (A) if the amount of the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances) made by a Lender that is not a Defaulting Lender exceeds such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances) as of a Settlement Date, then the Administrative Agent shall, by no later than 12:00 p.m. on the Settlement Date, transfer in immediately available funds to the account as such Lender may designate, an amount such that each such Lender shall, upon receipt of such amount, have as of the Settlement Date, its Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances), and (B) if the amount of the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances) made by a Lender is less than such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances) as of a Settlement Date, such Lender shall no later than 12:00 p.m. on the Settlement Date transfer in immediately available funds to the Administrative Agent's Account, an amount such that each such Lender shall, upon transfer of such amount, have as of the Settlement Date, its Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances). Such amounts made available to the Administrative Agent under clause (B) of the immediately preceding sentence shall be applied against the amounts of the applicable Swing Loans or Extraordinary Advances and, together with the portion of such Swing Loans or Extraordinary Advances representing Swing Lender's Pro Rata Share thereof, shall constitute Revolving Credit Loans of such Lenders. If any such amount is not made available to the Administrative Agent by any Lender on the Settlement Date applicable thereto to the extent required by the terms hereof, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover

-63-



for its account such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon at the Defaulting Lender Rate.
(ii)    In determining whether a Lender's balance of the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances) is less than, equal to, or greater than such Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans (including Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances) as of a Settlement Date, the Administrative Agent shall, as part of the relevant Settlement and subject to Section 8.03, apply to such balance the portion of payments actually received in immediately available funds by the Administrative Agent with respect to principal, interest and fees payable by the Borrowers and allocable to the Lenders hereunder, and proceeds of Collateral.
(iii)    To the extent Extraordinary Advances or Swing Loans are outstanding between Settlement Dates, the Administrative Agent may pay over to the Administrative Agent or the Swing Lender, as applicable, any payments or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent that in accordance with the terms of this Agreement would be applied to the reduction of the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans, for application to such Extraordinary Advances or Swing Loans. Between Settlement Dates, the Administrative Agent, to the extent no Extraordinary Advances or Swing Loans are outstanding, may pay over to the Swing Lender any payments or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent, that in accordance with the terms of this Agreement would be applied to the reduction of the Revolving Credit Loans, for application to the Swing Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans. If, as of any Settlement Date, payments or other amounts of the Loan Parties or their respective Subsidiaries received since the immediately preceding Settlement Date have been applied to the Swing Lender's Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans other than to Swing Loans, as provided for in the immediately preceding sentence, the Swing Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the accounts of the Lenders, and the Administrative Agent shall pay to the Lenders (subject to clause (iv) below), to be applied to the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans of such Lenders, an amount such that each such Lender shall, upon receipt of such amount, have, as of such Settlement Date, its Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Loans. Solely as among the Administrative Agent, the Swing Lender and the other Lenders, during the period between Settlement Dates, the Swing Lender with respect to the outstanding daily amount of principal of Swing Loans, the Administrative Agent with respect to the outstanding daily amount of principal of Extraordinary Advances, and each Lender with respect to the outstanding daily amount of principal of Revolving Credit Loans other than Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances, shall be entitled to interest at the applicable rate or rates payable under this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, during the period between Settlement Dates, none of the Swing Lender with respect to Swing Loans, the Administrative Agent with respect to Extraordinary Advances, or any Lender with respect to the Revolving Credit Loans other than Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances, shall be entitled to interest from any Loan Party or any of their Subsidiaries on the amount of principal repaid after the date of repayment of such principal.

-64-



(iv)    Anything in this Section 2.02(g) to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that a Lender is a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to refrain from remitting settlement amounts to the Defaulting Lender and, instead, shall be entitled to implement the provisions set forth in Section 2.17.
Section 2.03.    Letters of Credit.
(a)    Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, upon the request of the Parent Borrower made in accordance herewith, and prior to the Maturity Date, each L/C Issuer agrees to issue Letters of Credit for the account of the Parent Borrower or any other Borrower. By submitting a request to an L/C Issuer for the issuance of a Letter of Credit, the Parent Borrower shall be deemed to have requested that the applicable L/C Issuer issue such Letter of Credit. Each request for the issuance of a Letter of Credit, or the amendment, renewal or extension of any outstanding Letter of Credit, shall be (i) irrevocable and made in writing by a Responsible Officer of the Parent Borrower, (ii) delivered to the Administrative Agent and such L/C Issuer via facsimile or other electronic method of transmission reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent and such L/C Issuer and no later than 5 Business Days (or such shorter period that may be agreed by the applicable L/C Issuer and the Parent Borrower) in advance of the requested date of issuance, amendment, renewal, or extension, and (iii) subject to the applicable L/C Issuer's authentication procedures with results reasonably satisfactory to L/C Issuer. Each such request shall be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the applicable L/C Issuer and (i) shall specify (A) the amount and currency of such Letter of Credit, which shall be in Dollars or an Alternative Currency, (B) the date of issuance, amendment, renewal or extension of such Letter of Credit, (C) the proposed expiration date of such Letter of Credit, (D) the name and address of the beneficiary of the Letter of Credit and (E) such other information (including the conditions to drawing, and, in the case of an amendment, renewal, or extension, identification of the Letter of Credit to be so amended, renewed or extended) as shall be necessary to prepare, amend, renew or extend such Letter of Credit and (ii) shall be accompanied by such Issuer Documents as the Administrative Agent and the applicable L/C Issuer may reasonably request or require, to the extent that such requests or requirements are consistent with the Issuer Documents that such L/C Issuer generally requests for Letters of Credit in similar circumstances. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, an L/C Issuer may, but shall not be obligated to, issue a Letter of Credit that supports the obligations of a Loan Party or one of its Subsidiaries in respect of (x) a lease of real property to the extent that the face amount of such Letter of Credit exceeds the highest rent (including all rent-like charges) payable under such lease for a period of one year, or (y) an employment contract to the extent that the face amount of such Letter of Credit exceeds the highest compensation payable under such contract for a period of one year, in each case to the extent that such L/C Issuer maintains such a policy with respect to such Letters of Credit.
(b)    No L/C Issuer shall have any obligation to issue a Letter of Credit if any of the following would result after giving effect to the requested issuance:
(i)    the Letter of Credit Usage would exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit;

-65-



(ii)    the Letter of Credit Usage attributable to Letters of Credit issued by any L/C Issuer would exceed the Individual Letter of Credit Sublimit for such L/C Issuer (unless otherwise agreed by such L/C Issuer); or
(iii)    the Revolver Usage would exceed the Line Cap at such time.
(c)    In the event there is a Defaulting Lender as of the date of any request for the issuance of a Letter of Credit, no L/C Issuer shall be required to issue or arrange for such Letter of Credit to the extent (i) the Defaulting Lender's Letter of Credit Exposure with respect to such Letter of Credit cannot be reallocated pursuant to Section 2.17 or (ii) such L/C Issuer has not otherwise entered into arrangements reasonably satisfactory to it and the Parent Borrower to eliminate such L/C Issuer's risk with respect to the participation in such Letter of Credit of the Defaulting Lender, which arrangements may include the Parent Borrower Cash Collateralizing such Defaulting Lender's Letter of Credit Exposure in accordance with Section 2.17. Additionally, no L/C Issuer shall have any obligation to issue or extend a Letter of Credit if (A) any order, judgment, or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall, by its terms, purport to enjoin or restrain such L/C Issuer from issuing such Letter of Credit, or any Law applicable to such L/C Issuer or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of Law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such L/C Issuer shall prohibit or request that such L/C Issuer refrain from the issuance or extension of letters of credit generally or such Letter of Credit in particular, (B) the issuance or extension of such Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of such L/C Issuer applicable to letters of credit generally or (C) if amounts demanded to be paid under any Letter of Credit will not or may not be in Dollars or an Alternative Currency.
(d)    Each L/C Issuer (other than the Administrative Agent (or any of its Affiliates) to the extent it is an L/C Issuer) shall notify the Administrative Agent in writing no later than the Business Day prior to the Business Day on which such L/C Issuer issues any Letter of Credit. In addition, each L/C Issuer (other than the Administrative Agent (or any of its Affiliates) to the extent it is an L/C Issuer) shall, on the first Business Day of each week, submit to the Administrative Agent a report detailing the daily undrawn amount of each Letter of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer and related Letter of Credit Usage during the prior calendar week. The Parent Borrower and each Lender hereby acknowledge and agree that all Existing Letters of Credit shall constitute Letters of Credit under this Agreement on and after the Closing Date (or, in the case of Existing Letters of Credit issued by MUFG Bank, Ltd., such later date on which MUFG Bank, Ltd. becomes an L/C Issuer hereunder) with the same effect as if such Existing Letters of Credit were issued by an L/C Issuer at the request of the Parent Borrower on the Closing Date (or on such later date, as applicable). Each Letter of Credit shall be in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the applicable L/C Issuer. If any L/C Issuer makes a payment under a Letter of Credit, the applicable L/C Issuer shall notify the Parent Borrower (on behalf of itself and any applicable Borrower) and the Administrative Agent thereof. In the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an Alternative Currency, the applicable Borrower shall reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer in the Dollar equivalent of such Alternative Currency (as converted at the Spot Rate as determined by the Administrative Agent, which calculation shall be deemed correct absent manifest error), unless such L/C Issuer (at its option) shall have specified in such notice that it will require reimbursement in the applicable Alternative Currency. The applicable Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent an amount

-66-



equal to the applicable Letter of Credit Disbursement on the same Business Day as such Letter of Credit Disbursement is made and, in the absence of such payment, the amount of the Letter of Credit Disbursement immediately and automatically shall be deemed to be a Revolving Credit Loan hereunder (notwithstanding (x) any failure to satisfy any condition precedent set forth in Section 4.02 and (y) any requirement that a Revolving Credit Loan be made in a minimum amount or a multiple in excess thereof set forth in Section 2.02(a)(i)) and, initially, shall bear interest at the rate then applicable to Revolving Credit Loans that are Base Rate Loans. If such Letter of Credit Disbursement is made in an Alternative Currency, the amount of such Letter of Credit Disbursement shall be converted into Dollars at the Spot Rate (as determined by the Administrative Agent, which calculation shall be deemed correct absent manifest error) on such date for purposes of determining the amount of such Revolving Credit Loan. If a Letter of Credit Disbursement is deemed to be a Revolving Credit Loan hereunder, the applicable Borrower's obligation to pay the amount of such Letter of Credit Disbursement to the applicable L/C Issuer shall be automatically converted into an obligation of the Borrowers to pay the resulting Revolving Credit Loan. Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from any Borrower pursuant to this clause (d), the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the applicable L/C Issuer or, to the extent that Lenders have made payments pursuant to Section 2.03(e) to reimburse the applicable L/C Issuer, then to such Lenders and the L/C Issuers as their interests may appear.
(e)    Promptly following receipt of a notice of a Letter of Credit Disbursement pursuant to Section 2.03(d), each Lender agrees to fund its Pro Rata Share of any Revolving Credit Loan deemed made pursuant to Section 2.03(d) on the same terms and conditions as if the Parent Borrower had requested the amount thereof as a Revolving Credit Loan and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the applicable L/C Issuer the amounts so received by it from the Lenders. By the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or an amendment, renewal or extension of a Letter of Credit) and without any further action on the part of any L/C Issuer or the Lenders, the applicable L/C Issuer shall be deemed to have granted to each Lender, and each Lender shall be deemed to have purchased, a participation in each Letter of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer, in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of such Letter of Credit, and each such Lender agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the applicable L/C Issuer, such Lender's Pro Rata Share of any Letter of Credit Disbursement made by such L/C Issuer under the applicable Letter of Credit (in the case of a Letter of Credit Disbursement made in an Alternative Currency, in the equivalent in Dollars calculated at the Spot Rate (as determined by the Administrative Agent, which calculation shall be deemed correct absent manifest error)). In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Lender hereby absolutely and unconditionally agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the applicable L/C Issuer, such Lender's Pro Rata Share of each Letter of Credit Disbursement made by such L/C Issuer and not reimbursed by the Borrowers on the date due as provided in Section 2.03(d), or of any reimbursement payment that is required to be refunded (or that the Administrative Agent or such L/C Issuer elects, based upon the advice of counsel, to refund) to the Borrowers for any reason. Each Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to deliver to the Administrative Agent, for the account of an L/C Issuer, an amount equal to its respective Pro Rata Share of each Letter of Credit Disbursement pursuant to this Section 2.03(e) shall be absolute and unconditional and such remittance shall be made notwithstanding the occurrence or continuation of an Event of Default or Default or the failure to satisfy any condition set forth in Article IV. If any such Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent the amount of such Lender's

-67-



Pro Rata Share of a Letter of Credit Disbursement as provided in this Section, such Lender shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender and the Administrative Agent (for the account of L/C Issuer) shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest thereon at the Defaulting Lender Rate until paid in full. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that any Letter of Credit is issued at a time when the aggregate amount of outstanding FILO Revolving Credit Loans and FILO Letter of Credit Usage is less than the lesser of (i) the Maximum FILO Amount and (ii) the FILO Borrowing Base, participations in any Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be acquired first, by the Lenders in accordance with their respective FILO Revolving Credit Commitments until no such availability remains thereunder and second, by the Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitments.
(f)    Each Borrower agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Administrative Agent and each Lender (including each L/C Issuer and its branches, Affiliates, and correspondents) and each such Person's respective directors, officers, employees, attorneys and agents (each, including each L/C Issuer, a "Letter of Credit Related Person") (to the fullest extent permitted by law) from and against any and all claims, damages, losses, liabilities, and related reasonable and documented and invoiced out-of-pocket expenses (including Attorney Costs of a single firm of counsel to the applicable L/C Issuer and one local counsel to the applicable L/C Issuer in each reasonably necessary jurisdiction, one specialty counsel in each reasonably necessary specialty area for all such Letter of Credit Related Persons, taken as a whole (and, in the case of an actual conflict of interest where the Letter of Credit Related Person retains its own counsel, of another firm of counsel for each such affected Letter of Credit Related Person)), that may be incurred by or asserted or awarded against any such Letter of Credit Related Person (as and when they are incurred and irrespective of whether suit is brought), which may be incurred by or awarded against any such Letter of Credit Related Person (other than Taxes, which shall be governed by Article III) (the "Letter of Credit Indemnified Costs"), and that arise out of or in connection with, or as a result of:
(i)    any Letter of Credit or any pre-advice of its issuance;
(ii)    any transfer, sale, delivery, surrender or endorsement (or lack thereof) of any Drawing Document at any time(s) held by any such Letter of Credit Related Person in connection with any Letter of Credit;
(iii)    any action or proceeding arising out of, or in connection with, any Letter of Credit (whether administrative, judicial or in connection with arbitration), including any action or proceeding to compel or restrain any presentation or payment under any Letter of Credit, or for the wrongful dishonor of, or honoring a presentation under, any Letter of Credit;
(iv)    any independent undertakings issued by the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit;
(v)    any unauthorized instruction or request made to the applicable L/C Issuer in connection with any Letter of Credit or requested Letter of Credit, or any error, omission, interruption or delay in such instruction or request, whether transmitted by mail, courier,

-68-



electronic transmission, SWIFT, or any other telecommunication including communications through a correspondent;
(vi)    an adviser, confirmer or other nominated person seeking to be reimbursed, indemnified or compensated;
(vii)    any third party seeking to enforce the rights of an applicant, beneficiary, nominated person, transferee, assignee of Letter of Credit proceeds or holder of an instrument or document;
(viii)    the fraud, forgery or illegal action of parties other than Letter of Credit Related Persons;
(ix)    any prohibition on payment or delay in payment of any amount payable by the applicable L/C Issuer to a beneficiary or transferee beneficiary of a Letter of Credit arising out of Anti-Corruption and Anti-Money Laundering Laws or Sanctions;
(x)    the applicable L/C Issuer's performance of the obligations of a confirming institution or entity that wrongfully dishonors a confirmation;
(xi)    any foreign language translation provided to the applicable L/C Issuer in connection with any Letter of Credit;
(xii)    any foreign law or usage as it relates to the applicable L/C Issuer's issuance of a Letter of Credit in support of a foreign guaranty including without limitation the expiration of such guaranty after the related Letter of Credit expiration date and any resulting drawing paid by the applicable L/C Issuer in connection therewith; or
(xiii)    the acts or omissions, whether rightful or wrongful, of any present or future de jure or de facto governmental or regulatory authority or cause or event beyond the control of the Letter of Credit Related Person;
provided, that such indemnity shall not be available to any Letter of Credit Related Person claiming indemnification pursuant to this Section 2.03(f) to the extent that such Letter of Credit Indemnified Costs may be determined in a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted directly from the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of the Letter of Credit Related Person claiming indemnity. The Borrowers hereby agree to pay the Letter of Credit Related Person claiming indemnity not later than 10 Business Days after demand therefor. If and to the extent that the obligations of the Borrowers under this Section 2.03(f) are unenforceable for any reason, the Borrowers agree to make the maximum contribution to the Letter of Credit Indemnified Costs payable in accordance with this Section 2.03(f) that is permissible under applicable law. This indemnification provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement and all Letters of Credit.
(g)    The liability of each L/C Issuer (or any Letter of Credit Related Person) under, in connection with or arising out of any Letter of Credit (or pre-advice), regardless of the

-69-



form or legal grounds of the action or proceeding, shall be limited to direct damages suffered by the Parent Borrower and its Subsidiaries that are caused directly by such L/C Issuer's gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct in (i) honoring a presentation under a Letter of Credit that on its face does not at least substantially comply with the terms and conditions of such Letter of Credit, (ii) failing to honor a presentation under a Letter of Credit that strictly complies with the terms and conditions of such Letter of Credit or (iii) retaining Drawing Documents presented under a Letter of Credit.
(h)    The Parent Borrower (on behalf of itself and any applicable Borrower) will examine a copy of the Letter of Credit and any other documents sent by the applicable L/C Issuer in connection therewith and shall promptly notify such L/C Issuer (not later than 3 Business Days following the Parent Borrower's receipt of documents from such L/C Issuer) of any non-compliance with the Parent Borrower's instructions and of any discrepancy in any document under any presentment or other irregularity. The Borrowers are responsible for the final text of the Letter of Credit as issued by an L/C Issuer, irrespective of any assistance such L/C Issuer may provide such as drafting or recommending text or by such L/C Issuer's use or refusal to use text submitted by the Parent Borrower. The Borrowers understand that the final form of any Letter of Credit may be subject to such revisions and changes to the Letter of Credit language consistent with any applicable L/C Issuer's customary practices for letter of credit issuance as are deemed necessary or appropriate by such L/C Issuer, and Borrowers hereby consent to such revisions and changes that are not materially different from the final text of the Letter of Credit approved by the Borrowers. The Borrowers are solely responsible for the suitability of the Letter of Credit for the applicable Borrower's purposes. If the Parent Borrower requests that any L/C Issuer issue a Letter of Credit for an Affiliate (including any Guarantor) or unaffiliated third party (each an "Account Party"), (i) such Account Party shall have no rights against the applicable L/C Issuer; (ii) the Parent Borrower shall be responsible for the application for such Letter of Credit and the Borrowers shall have the obligations of such Letter of Credit for such Account Party under this Agreement; and (iii) communications (including notices) related to the applicable Letter of Credit shall be between the applicable L/C Issuer and the Parent Borrower (and not between the L/C Issuer and the Account Party). The Borrowers understand and agree that, unless otherwise agreed by the Parent Borrower and the applicable L/C Issuer, no L/C Issuer shall be required to extend the expiration date of any Letter of Credit for any reason. With respect to any Letter of Credit containing an "automatic amendment" to extend the expiration date of such Letter of Credit, the applicable L/C Issuer, in its sole and absolute discretion, may give notice of nonrenewal of such Letter of Credit and, if the Parent Borrower does not at any time want the then current expiration date of such Letter of Credit to be extended, the Parent Borrower shall so notify the Administrative Agent and the applicable L/C Issuer at least 15 calendar days (or such shorter period agreed to by the applicable L/C Issuer) before the applicable L/C Issuer is required to notify the beneficiary of such Letter of Credit or any advising bank of such non-extension pursuant to the terms of such Letter of Credit.
(i)    Each Borrower's reimbursement and payment obligations under this Section 2.03 are absolute, unconditional and irrevocable and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under any and all circumstances, including:

-70-



(i)    any lack of validity, enforceability or legal effect of any Letter of Credit, any Issuer Document, this Agreement or any Loan Document, or any term or provision therein or herein;
(ii)    payment against presentation of any draft, demand or claim for payment under any Drawing Document that does not comply in whole or in part with the terms of the applicable Letter of Credit or which proves to be fraudulent, forged or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect, or which is signed, issued or presented by a Person or a transferee of such Person purporting to be a successor or transferee of the beneficiary of such Letter of Credit;
(iii)    any L/C Issuer or any of its branches or Affiliates being the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit;
(iv)    any L/C Issuer or any correspondent honoring a drawing against a Drawing Document up to the amount available under any Letter of Credit even if such Drawing Document claims an amount in excess of the amount available under the Letter of Credit;
(v)    the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right that any Loan Party or any of its Subsidiaries may have at any time against any beneficiary or transferee beneficiary, any assignee of proceeds, any L/C Issuer or any other Person;
(vi)    any L/C Issuer or any correspondent honoring a drawing upon receipt of an electronic presentation under a Letter of Credit requiring the same, regardless of whether the original Drawing Documents arrive at such L/C Issuer's counters or are different from the electronic presentation;
(vii)    any other event, circumstance or conduct whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing that might, but for this Section 2.03(i), constitute a legal or equitable defense to or discharge of, or provide a right of set-off against, any Loan Party or any of its Subsidiaries' reimbursement and other payment obligations and liabilities, arising under, or in connection with, any Letter of Credit, whether against any L/C Issuer, the beneficiary or any other Person; or
(viii)    the fact that any Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing;
provided that subject to Sections 2.03(f) and (g) above, the foregoing shall not release any L/C Issuer from such liability to the Loan Parties and their Subsidiaries as may be determined in a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction against such L/C Issuer following reimbursement or payment of the obligations and liabilities, including reimbursement and other payment obligations, of the applicable Borrower to such L/C Issuer arising under, or in connection with, this Section 2.03 or any Letter of Credit.
(j)    The Borrowers shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of L/C Issuer as non-refundable fees, commissions, and charges (it being acknowledged and agreed that

-71-



any charging of such fees, commissions, and charges to the Loan Account pursuant to the provisions of Section 2.12 shall be deemed to constitute a demand for payment thereof for the purposes of this Section 2.03(j)): (i) on the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December, a fronting fee which shall be imposed by L/C Issuer equal to 0.125% per annum times the average amount of the Letter of Credit Usage attributable to Letters of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer during the immediately preceding quarter, plus (ii) promptly upon demand, any and all other customary commissions, fees and charges then in effect imposed by, and any and all expenses incurred by, such L/C Issuer, or by any adviser, confirming institution or entity or other nominated person, relating to such Letters of Credit, at the time of issuance of any such Letter of Credit and upon the occurrence of any other activity with respect to any such Letter of Credit (including transfers, assignments of proceeds, amendments, drawings, renewals or cancellations).
(k)    Each Letter of Credit shall expire not later than the date that is 12 months after the date of the issuance of such Letter of Credit; provided that any standby Letter of Credit may provide for the automatic extension thereof for any number of additional periods each of up to one year in duration; provided further that with respect to any Letter of Credit which extends beyond the Maturity Date, it shall be Cash Collateralized on or before the Letter of Credit Expiration Date.
(l)    If (i) any Event of Default shall occur and be continuing or (ii) an Overadvance has occurred, then on the Business Day following the date when the Parent Borrower receives notice from the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders (or, if the maturity of the Obligations has been accelerated, Lenders with Letter of Credit Exposure representing greater than 50% of the total Letter of Credit Exposure) demanding Cash Collateralization pursuant to this Section 2.03(l) upon such demand, the Borrowers shall provide Cash Collateral with respect to the then existing Letter of Credit Usage (in the case of the preceding clause (ii), in an amount sufficient to eliminate such Overadvance). If the Borrowers fail to provide Cash Collateral as required by this Section 2.03(l), the Lenders may (and, upon direction of the Administrative Agent, shall) advance, as Revolving Credit Loans the amount of the cash collateral required pursuant to the Cash Collateralize provision so that the then existing Letter of Credit Usage is cash collateralized in accordance with the Cash Collateralize provision (whether or not the Commitments have terminated, an Overadvance exists or the conditions in Section 4.02 are satisfied).
(m)    Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the applicable L/C Issuer and the Parent Borrower when a Letter of Credit is issued (including any such agreement applicable to an Existing Letter of Credit), (i) the rules of the ISP shall apply to each standby Letter of Credit and (ii) the rules of the UCP shall apply to each commercial Letter of Credit.
(n)    Each L/C Issuer shall be deemed to have acted with due diligence and reasonable care if such L/C Issuer's conduct is in accordance with Standard Letter of Credit Practice or in accordance with this Agreement.
(o)    In the event of a direct conflict between the provisions of this Section 2.03 and any provision contained in any Issuer Document, it is the intention of the parties hereto that such provisions be read together and construed, to the fullest extent possible, to be in concert with

-72-



each other. In the event of any actual, irreconcilable conflict that cannot be resolved as aforesaid, the terms and provisions of this Section 2.03 shall control and govern.
(p)    If the Maturity Date in respect of any tranche of Revolving Credit Commitments occurs prior to the expiration of any Letter of Credit, then (i) if one or more other tranches of Revolving Credit Commitments in respect of which the Maturity Date shall not have occurred are then in effect, such Letters of Credit shall automatically be deemed to have been issued (including for purposes of the obligations of the Lenders to purchase participations therein and to make Revolving Credit Loans and payments in respect thereof pursuant to Section 2.03(e) or (k)) under (and ratably participated in by Lenders pursuant to) the Revolving Credit Commitments in respect of such non‑terminating tranches up to an aggregate amount not to exceed the aggregate principal amount of the unutilized Revolving Credit Commitments thereunder at such time (it being understood that no partial face amount of any Letter of Credit may be so reallocated) and (ii) to the extent not reallocated pursuant to the immediately preceding clause (i), the Borrowers shall Cash Collateralize any such Letter of Credit. Except to the extent of reallocations of participations pursuant to clause (i) of the immediately preceding sentence, the occurrence of a Maturity Date with respect to a given tranche of Revolving Credit Commitments shall have no effect upon (and shall not diminish) the percentage participations of the Lenders in any Letter of Credit issued before such Maturity Date.
(q)    The provisions of this Section 2.03 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the Obligations being Paid in Full with respect to any Letters of Credit that remain outstanding.
(r)    At the Borrowers' cost and expense, the Borrowers shall execute and deliver to the applicable L/C Issuer such additional certificates, instruments or documents and take such additional actions as may be reasonably requested by such L/C Issuer to enable such L/C Issuer to issue any Letter of Credit pursuant to this Agreement and the related Issuer Document, to protect, exercise and/or enforce such L/C Issuer's rights and interests under this Agreement or to give effect to the terms and provisions of this Agreement or any Issuer Document. At all times after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Borrower irrevocably appoints each L/C Issuer as its attorney-in-fact and authorizes each such L/C Issuer, without notice to the Borrowers, to take any action and to execute and deliver ancillary documents and letters customary in the letter of credit business that may include but are not limited to advisements, indemnities, checks, bills of exchange and issuance documents. The power of attorney granted by the Borrowers pursuant to this Section 2.03(r) is limited solely to such actions related to the issuance, confirmation or amendment of any Letter of Credit and to ancillary documents or letters customary in the letter of credit business. This appointment is coupled with an interest.
(s)    Any L/C Issuer may at any time give notice of its resignation to the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, the other L/C Issuers and the Parent Borrower; provided that, unless such resignation is in connection with a permitted assignment of such L/C Issuer's rights and obligations under this Agreement or due to a regulatory issue, notice must be delivered no less than thirty (30) days in advance of such resignation and prior to the date of such resignation, the applicable L/C Issuer shall have identified another Lender reasonably acceptable to the Parent Borrower and

-73-



the Administrative Agent that has agreed to act as a replacement L/C Issuer hereunder with respect to such resigning L/C Issuer’s Individual Letter of Credit Sublimit, and in connection therewith such resigning L/C Issuer (i) shall not be required to issue any further Letters of Credit and (ii) shall maintain all of its rights as L/C Issuer with respect to any Letters of Credit issued by it prior to the date of such resignation so long as such Letters of Credit or L/C Obligations remain outstanding and not otherwise Cash Collateralized in accordance with the terms herein.
Section 2.04.    Notes. Any Lender may request that any portion of its Commitments or the Loans made by it be evidenced by one or more Notes. In such event, the Borrowers shall execute and deliver to such Lender the requested Notes payable to such Lender. Thereafter, the portion of the Commitments and Loans evidenced by such Notes and interest thereon shall at all times be represented by such Notes.
Section 2.05.    Prepayments.
(a)    Optional. Each Borrower may, upon notice to the Administrative Agent, at any time or from time to time, voluntarily prepay Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (i) such notice must be received by the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 p.m. (A) 3 Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans and (B) on the date of prepayment of Base Rate Loans; (ii) any prepayment of Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount of $5,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof; and (iii) any prepayment of Base Rate Loans (other than Extraordinary Advances or prepayments made by the Borrowers with respect to estimated interest, fees and/or expenses due or to be due hereunder) shall be in a principal amount of $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof or, in each case, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding. Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the Type(s) of Loans to be prepaid and, if Eurodollar Rate Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of the Revolving Credit Loans and otherwise be in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Lender of its receipt of each such notice (other than a notice related solely to Extraordinary Advances prior to the Settlement thereof), and of the amount of such Lender's Pro Rata Share of such prepayment. If such notice is given by a Borrower, such Borrower (or another Borrower on behalf of such Borrower) shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein; provided that a notice of prepayment pursuant to this Section 2.05(a) may state that such notice is conditioned upon the occurrence of one or more events specified therein, in which case such notice may be revoked or modified by such Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date of prepayment) if such condition is not satisfied. Any prepayment of a Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be accompanied by all accrued interest thereon, together with any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 3.05. Subject to Section 2.17, each prepayment of the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans shall be applied to the Revolving Credit Loans of the Lenders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares, as applicable.

-79-



thereon. Any failure to so record or any error in doing so shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligation of the Borrowers hereunder to pay any amount owing with respect to the Obligations. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by any Lender and the Loan Account in respect of such matters, the Loan Account shall control in the absence of manifest error.
(b)    In addition to the accounts and records referred to in Section 2.11(a), each Lender and the Administrative Agent shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice accounts or records evidencing the purchases and sales by such Lender of participations in Letters of Credit, Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances.

Section 2.12.    Payments Generally.
(a)    All payments to be made by any Borrower shall be made free and clear of and without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by any Borrower hereunder shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, to the Administrative Agent's Account in Dollars and in immediately available funds not later than 1:00 p.m. on the date specified herein. The Administrative Agent will promptly distribute to each Lender its Pro Rata Share (or other applicable share as provided herein) of such payment in like funds as received by wire transfer to such Lender's Lending Office. All payments received by the Administrative Agent after 1:00 p.m. shall be deemed received on the next succeeding Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue.
(b)    If any payment to be made by the Borrowers shall come due on a day other than a Business Day, payment shall be made on the next following Business Day, and such extension of time shall be reflected in computing interest or fees, as the case may be; provided, however, that,

-80-



if such extension would cause payment of interest on or principal of Eurodollar Rate Loans to be made in the next succeeding calendar month, such payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Business Day.
(c)    Unless the applicable Borrower or any Lender has notified the Administrative Agent, prior to the date any payment is required to be made by it to the Administrative Agent hereunder, that the applicable Borrower or such Lender, as the case may be, will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the applicable Borrower or such Lender, as the case may be, has timely made such payment and may (but shall not be so required to), in reliance thereon, make available a corresponding amount to the Person entitled thereto. If and to the extent that such payment was not in fact made to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds, then:
(i)    if the applicable Borrower failed to make such payment, each Lender shall forthwith on demand repay to the Administrative Agent the portion of such assumed payment that was made available to such Lender in immediately available funds, together with interest thereon in respect of each day from and including the date such amount was made available by the Administrative Agent to such Lender to the date such amount is repaid to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds at a rate per annum equal to the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing; and
(ii)    if any Lender failed to make such payment, such Lender shall forthwith on demand pay to the Administrative Agent the amount thereof in immediately available funds, together with interest thereon for the period from the date such amount was made available by the Administrative Agent to the applicable Borrower to the date such amount is recovered by the Administrative Agent (the "Compensation Period") at a rate per annum equal to the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Administrative Agent in connection with the foregoing. If such Lender pays such amount to the Administrative Agent, then such amount shall constitute such Lender's Loan included in the applicable Borrowing. If such Lender does not pay such amount forthwith upon the Administrative Agent's demand therefor, the Administrative Agent may make a demand therefor upon the applicable Borrower, and the applicable Borrower shall pay such amount to the Administrative Agent, together with interest thereon for the Compensation Period at a rate per annum equal to the rate of interest applicable to the applicable Borrowing. Nothing herein shall be deemed to relieve any Lender from its obligation to fulfill its Commitment or to prejudice any rights, which the Administrative Agent or the applicable Borrower may have against any Lender as a result of any default by such Lender hereunder.
A notice of the Administrative Agent to any Lender or the applicable Borrower with respect to any amount owing under this Section 2.12(c) shall be conclusive, absent manifest error.

-81-



(d)    If any Lender makes available to the Administrative Agent funds for any Revolving Credit Loan to be made by such Lender as provided in the foregoing provisions of this Article II, and such funds are not made available to the applicable Borrower by the Administrative Agent because the conditions to the applicable Credit Extension set forth in Article IV are not satisfied or waived in accordance with the terms hereof, the Administrative Agent shall return such funds (in like funds as received from such Lender) to such Lender, without interest.
(e)    The obligations of the Lenders hereunder to make Revolving Credit Loans and to fund participations in Letters of Credit, Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances and to make payments pursuant to Section 10.04(c) are several and not joint. The failure of any Lender to make any Revolving Credit Loan, to fund any such participation or to make any payment under Section 10.04(c) on any date required hereunder shall not relieve any other Lender of its corresponding obligation to do so on such date, and no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to so make its Revolving Credit Loan, to purchase its participation or to make its payment under Section 10.04(c).
(f)    Nothing herein shall be deemed to obligate any Lender to obtain the funds for any Revolving Credit Loan in any particular place or manner or to constitute a representation by any Lender that it has obtained or will obtain the funds for any Revolving Credit Loan in any particular place or manner.
(g)    Each Borrower hereby authorizes each Lender, if and to the extent payment owed to such Lender is not made when due hereunder or, in the case of a Lender, under the Note held by such Lender, to charge from time to time against any or all of such Borrower's accounts with such Lender any amount so due.
(h)    Whenever any payment received by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents is insufficient to pay in full all amounts due and payable to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders under or in respect of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents on any date, such payment shall be distributed by the Administrative Agent and applied by the Administrative Agent and the Lenders in the order of priority set forth in Section 8.03. If the Administrative Agent receives funds for application to the Obligations of the Loan Parties under or in respect of the Loan Documents under circumstances for which the Loan Documents do not specify the manner in which such funds are to be applied, the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, elect to distribute such funds to each of the Lenders in accordance with such Lender's Pro Rata Share of Revolving Credit Loans in repayment or prepayment of such of the outstanding Loans or other Obligations then owing to such Lender.
Section 2.13.    Sharing of Payments. If, other than as expressly provided elsewhere herein, any Lender shall obtain on account of the Revolving Credit Loans made by it, or the participations in Letter of Credit Usage, Swing Loans or Extraordinary Advances held by it, any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of setoff, or otherwise) in excess of its ratable share (or other share contemplated hereunder) thereof, such Lender shall immediately (a) notify the Administrative Agent of such fact and (b) purchase from the other Lenders such participations in the Revolving Credit Loans made by them and/or such subparticipations in the participations in Letter of Credit Usage, Swing Loans or Extraordinary

-82-



Advances held by them, as the case may be, as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment in respect of such Revolving Credit Loans or such participations, as the case may be, pro rata with each of them; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from the purchasing Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 10.05 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the purchasing Lender in its discretion), such purchase shall to that extent be rescinded and each other Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price paid therefor, together with an amount equal to such paying Lender's ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such paying Lender's required repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender in respect of the total amount so recovered, without further interest thereon. Each Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of setoff, but subject to Section 10.08) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the applicable Borrower in the amount of such participation; provided further that, so long as the Obligations under the Loan Documents shall not have been accelerated, any excess payment received by any Lender shall be shared on a pro rata basis only with other Lenders. The Administrative Agent will keep records (which shall be conclusive and binding in the absence of manifest error) of participations purchased under this Section 2.13 and will in each case notify the Lenders following any such purchases or repayments. Each Lender that purchases a participation pursuant to this Section 2.13 shall from and after such purchase have the right to give all notices, requests, demands, directions and other communications under this Agreement with respect to the portion of the Obligations purchased to the same extent as though the purchasing Lender were the original owner of the Obligations purchased.
The provisions of this Section 2.13 shall not be construed to apply to (x) the application of cash collateral held in connection with Letter of Credit Exposure that has been Cash Collateralized or (y) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Revolving Credit Loans or subparticipations in Letter of Credit Usage, Swing Loans or Extraordinary Advances to any assignee or participant, other than an assignment to any Borrower or any Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this Section 2.13 shall apply).
Section 2.14.    Increase in Revolving Commitments.
(a)    So long as no Default has occurred and is continuing and no Default would result therefrom, upon notice to the Administrative Agent, the Parent Borrower may from time to time request an increase in the Revolving Credit Commitments on the same terms as the existing Revolving Credit Commitments (each request for an increase in Revolving Credit Commitments being a "Revolving Credit Commitment Increase"); provided that (i) any such request for an increase shall be in a minimum amount of $10,000,000 (unless the Administrative Agent otherwise agrees) and (ii) the aggregate amount of Revolving Credit Commitment Increases effected from time to time after the Closing Date shall not exceed the sum of (x) $150,000,000 and (y) the amount of any reductions in the Maximum FILO Amount since the Closing Date. The Parent Borrower may request additional Revolving Credit Commitments from existing Lenders or Additional Lenders

-83-



and upon execution of a customary joinder agreement, such Additional Lenders shall become Lenders hereunder. Schedule 1.01(f) hereto shall be modified accordingly for all such new Revolving Credit Commitments. No Lender shall be obligated to provide any new Revolving Credit Commitments unless it so agrees and the Borrowers shall not be obligated to offer any existing Lender the opportunity to provide any Revolving Credit Commitment Increase.
(b)    If the Revolving Credit Commitments are increased in accordance with this Section 2.14, the Administrative Agent and the Parent Borrower shall determine the effective date (the "Increase Effective Date") and the final allocation of such increase. The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Parent Borrower and the Lenders of the final allocation of such increase and the Increase Effective Date. As a condition precedent to such increase, the Parent Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent a certificate of each Loan Party dated as of the Increase Effective Date signed by a Responsible Officer of such Loan Party (i) certifying and attaching the resolutions adopted by such Loan Party approving or consenting to such increase, and (ii) in the case of the Borrowers, certifying that, before and after giving effect to such increase, (A) the representations and warranties contained in Article V and the other Loan Documents are true and correct in all material respects on and as of the Increase Effective Date, except to the extent that such representations and warranties specifically refer to an earlier date, in which case they are true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date, and except that for purposes of this Section 2.14, the representations and warranties contained in Section 5.05(a) shall be deemed to refer to the most recent statements furnished pursuant to Section 6.01(a)); provided that, to the extent such representations and warranties are qualified with "materiality" or "Material Adverse Effect" or similar terms, such representations and warranties shall be true and correct in all respects, and (B) no Default exists.
(c)    On each Increase Effective Date, (i) the Borrowers shall be deemed to have repaid the Revolving Credit Loans outstanding on such Increase Effective Date immediately prior to the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase (the "Existing Revolving Borrowings"), (ii) each existing Lender increasing its Revolving Credit Commitments shall pay to the Administrative Agent in same day funds an amount equal to the difference between (A) the product of (1) such Lender's Pro Rata Share (calculated after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the aggregate amount of the Resulting Revolving Borrowings (as hereinafter defined) and (B) the product of (1) such Lender's Pro Rata Share (calculated without giving effect to the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the aggregate amount of the Existing Revolving Borrowings, (iii) each Additional Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent in same day funds an amount equal to the product of (A) such Lender's Pro Rata Share (calculated after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase) multiplied by (B) the aggregate amount of the Resulting Revolving Borrowings, (iv) after the Administrative Agent receives the funds specified in clauses (ii) and (iii) above, the Administrative Agent shall pay to each Lender the portion of such funds that is equal to the difference between (A) the product of (1) such Lender's Pro Rata Share (calculated without giving effect to the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the aggregate amount of the Existing Revolving Borrowings, and (B) the product of (1) such Lender's Pro Rata Share (calculated after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase) multiplied by (2) the aggregate

-84-



amount of the Resulting Revolving Borrowings, (v) after the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase, each Borrower shall be deemed to have made new Borrowings (the "Resulting Revolving Borrowings") in an aggregate amount equal to the aggregate amount of such Borrower's Existing Revolving Borrowings and of the Types and for the Interest Periods specified in a Committed Loan Notice delivered by such Borrower to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Section 2.02 (and each Borrower shall deliver such Committed Loan Notice), (vi) each Lender shall be deemed to hold its Pro Rata Share of each Resulting Revolving Borrowing (calculated after giving effect to the effectiveness of such Revolving Commitment Increase) and (vii) each Borrower shall pay each Lender any and all accrued but unpaid interest on its Loans comprising the Existing Revolving Borrowings of such Borrower. The deemed payments of the Existing Revolving Borrowings made pursuant to clause (i) above shall be subject to compensation by the applicable Borrower pursuant to the provisions of Section 3.05 if the date of the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase occurs other than on the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto. Upon each Revolving Credit Commitment Increase pursuant to this Section 2.14, each Lender immediately prior to such increase will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assigned to each Additional Lender and each existing Lender increasing its Revolving Credit Commitments, and each such Additional Lender and each such existing Lender increasing its Revolving Credit Commitments will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assumed, a portion of such Lender's Letter of Credit Exposure and participations in outstanding Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances such that, after giving effect to such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase and each such deemed assignment and acceptance of such participations, the percentage of the aggregate outstanding participations hereunder in Letter of Credit Exposure and participations in outstanding Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances, in each case held by each Lender (including each such Additional Lender) will equal such Lender's Pro Rata Share.
(d)    This Section 2.14 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.13 and Section 10.01 to the contrary.
Section 2.15.    [Reserved].
Section 2.16.    [Reserved].
Section 2.17.    Defaulting Lenders.
(a)    Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as that Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable Law:
(i)    Waivers and Amendments. Such Defaulting Lender's right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definitions of "Required Lenders", "Supermajority Lenders" and in Section 10.01.
(ii)    Reallocation of Payments. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent under this Agreement for the account of that Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VIII or

-85-



otherwise, and including any amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by that Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 10.08), shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by that Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder (including, for the avoidance of doubt, amounts owing in respect of any Extraordinary Advance); second, to the Swing Lender to the extent of any Swing Loans that were made by the Swing Lender and that were required to be, but were not, paid by the Defaulting Lender; third, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by that Defaulting Lender to an L/C Issuer hereunder; fourth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent or requested by an L/C Issuer, to be held as Cash Collateral for future funding obligations of that Defaulting Lender of any participation in any Letter of Credit; fifth, as the Parent Borrower may request (so long as no Default exists), to the funding of any Revolving Credit Loan in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; sixth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Parent Borrower, to be held in a non‑interest bearing deposit account and released in order to satisfy obligations of that Defaulting Lender to fund Revolving Credit Loans under this Agreement; seventh, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders and the L/C Issuers as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender or an L/C Issuer against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; eighth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrowers as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrowers against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and ninth, to that Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans or L/C Borrowings in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share and (y) such Loans or L/C Borrowings were made at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 4.02 were satisfied or waived, or such Loans are Extraordinary Advances, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Revolving Credit Loans of, and L/C Borrowings and participation obligations with respect to Extraordinary Advances owed to, all non‑Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Revolving Credit Loans of, or L/C Borrowings or participations with respect to Extraordinary Advances owed to, that Defaulting Lender. Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post Cash Collateral pursuant to this Section 2.17(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by that Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(iii)    Certain Fees. That Defaulting Lender (x) shall not be entitled to receive any Unused Line Fee pursuant to Section 2.09(a)(ii) for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Borrowers shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender) and (y) shall be limited in its right to receive Letter of Credit Fees as provided in Section 2.09(a)(iii).

-86-



(iv)    Reallocation of Pro Rata Shares. During any period in which there is a Defaulting Lender, for purposes of computing the amount of the obligation of each non‑Defaulting Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit pursuant to Section 2.03, Swing Loans pursuant to Section 2.02(a)(ii) or Extraordinary Advances pursuant to Section 2.02(f), the Pro Rata Share of each non‑Defaulting Lender shall be computed without giving effect to the Commitments of that Defaulting Lender; provided that (i) each such reallocation shall be given effect only if, at the date the applicable Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, no Default exists; and (ii) the aggregate obligation of each non‑Defaulting Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit, Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances shall not exceed the positive difference, if any, of (x) the Commitments of that non‑Defaulting Lender minus (y) the aggregate Revolver Usage allocable to that Lender. If the reallocation described in this Section 2.17(a)(iv) cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrowers shall, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to them hereunder or under Law, (A) first, prepay Extraordinary Advances in an amount equal to the Extraordinary Advance Fronting Exposure, (B) second, prepay Swing Loans in an amount equal to the Swing Lender's Swing Loan Fronting Exposure and (C) third, Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuers' Fronting Exposure. Subject to Section 10.22, 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.
(b)    Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Parent Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Swing Lender and the L/C Issuers agree in writing in their sole discretion that a Defaulting Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any Cash Collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase that portion of outstanding Revolving Credit Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Revolving Credit Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit, Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their Pro Rata Shares (without giving effect to Section 2.17(a)(iv)), whereupon that Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrowers while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender's having been a Defaulting Lender.
Section 2.18.    Extension of Maturity Date.
(a)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, pursuant to one or more offers (each, an "Extension Offer") made from time to time by the Parent Borrower to all Lenders with Revolving Credit Commitments with a like Maturity Date, in each case on a pro rata basis (based on the Revolving Credit Commitments with the same Maturity Date), the Parent

-87-



Borrower may from time to time extend the Maturity Date of any Revolving Credit Commitments and otherwise modify the terms of such Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to the terms of the relevant Extension Offer (including by increasing or decreasing the interest rate or fees payable in respect of such Revolving Credit Commitments (and related outstandings)) (each, an "Extension", and each group of Revolving Credit Commitments, as so extended, as well as the original Revolving Credit Commitments (not so extended), being a "tranche"; any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall constitute a separate tranche of Revolving Credit Commitments from the tranche of Revolving Credit Commitments from which they were converted), so long as the following terms are satisfied: (i) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or caused thereby at the time the offering document in respect of an Extension Offer is delivered to the Lenders and the representations and warranties contained in Article V and the other Loan Documents shall be true and correct in all material respects on and as of the time the offering document in respect of an Extension Offer is delivered to the Lenders, except to the extent that such representations and warranties specifically refer to an earlier date, in which case they are true and correct in all material respects as of such earlier date, and except that for purposes of this Section 2.18, the representations and warranties contained in Section 5.05(a) and (b) shall be deemed to refer to the most recent statements furnished pursuant to Section 6.01(a) and (b), respectively; provided that, to the extent such representations and warranties are qualified with "materiality" or "Material Adverse Effect" or similar terms, such representations and warranties shall be true and correct in all respects, (ii) except as to interest rates, fees and final maturity, the Revolving Credit Commitment of any Lender (an "Extending Lender") extended pursuant to an Extension (an "Extended Revolving Credit Commitment"), and the related outstandings, shall be a Revolving Credit Commitment (or related outstandings, as the case may be) with the same terms as the original Revolving Credit Commitments (and related outstandings), including the terms of the Intercreditor Agreement; provided that (x) subject, in the case of Letters of Credit, to the provisions of Section 2.03(p) to the extent dealing with Swing Loans and Letters of Credit that mature or expire after a Maturity Date when there exist Extended Revolving Credit Commitments with a longer Maturity Date, all Letters of Credit, Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances shall be participated in on a pro rata basis by all Lenders with Revolving Credit Commitments in accordance with their Pro Rata Share of the Revolving Credit Facility (and except as provided in Section 2.03(p), without giving effect to changes thereto on an earlier Maturity Date with respect to Letters of Credit, Swing Loans or Extraordinary Advances theretofore incurred or issued) and all borrowings under Revolving Credit Commitments and repayments thereunder shall be made on a pro rata basis (except for (A) payments of interest and fees at different rates on Extended Revolving Credit Commitments (and related outstandings) and (B) repayments required upon the Maturity Date of the non‑extending Revolving Credit Commitments) and (y) at no time shall there be Revolving Credit Commitments hereunder (including Extended Revolving Credit Commitments and any original Revolving Credit Commitments) that have more than three different Maturity Dates (unless the Administrative Agent otherwise agrees), (iii) if the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Credit Commitments, in respect of which the Lenders shall have accepted the relevant Extension Offer shall exceed the maximum aggregate principal amount of Revolving Credit Commitments offered to be extended by the Parent Borrower pursuant to such Extension Offer, then the Revolving Credit Loans of such Lenders shall be extended ratably up to such maximum amount based on the respective principal amounts (but not to exceed actual holdings of record) with respect to which such Lenders have accepted such Extension Offer and (iv) all documentation in

-88-



respect of such Extension shall be consistent with the foregoing. For the avoidance of doubt, no Lender shall be required to participate in any Extension, any Lender that fails to consent to an Extension Offer shall be deemed to have declined such Extension Offer and the Revolving Credit Loans and Commitments of any non-participating Lenders shall mature (and the Commitments terminate) on the applicable Maturity Date.
(b)    With respect to all Extensions consummated by the Parent Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.18, (i) such Extensions shall not constitute voluntary payments or prepayments for purposes of Section 2.05 and (ii) each Extension Offer shall be in a minimum amount of $50,000,000 aggregate principal amount of Revolving Credit Commitments of any or all applicable tranches to be extended (unless (x) otherwise agreed to by the Administrative Agent in its sole discretion or (y) the Extension Offer is made to extend Revolving Credit Commitments to the same Maturity Date as a prior Extension Offer). The Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereby consent to the Extensions and the other transactions contemplated by this Section 2.18 (including, for the avoidance of doubt, payment of any interest, fees or premium in respect of any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments on such terms as may be set forth in the relevant Extension Offer) and hereby waive the requirements of any provision of this Agreement (including Sections 2.05 and 2.13) or any other Loan Document that may otherwise prohibit any such Extension or any other transaction contemplated by this Section 2.18; provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, such consent shall not be deemed to be an acceptance of any particular Extension Offer by the Administrative Agent or any Lender.
(c)    The Lenders hereby irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent to enter into amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents with the Borrowers (and without the consent of any other Person) as may be necessary in order to establish new tranches or sub‑tranches in respect of Revolving Credit Commitments so extended and such amendments as may be necessary or appropriate in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Parent Borrower in connection with the establishment of such new tranches or sub‑tranches, in each case on terms consistent with this Section 2.18. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Administrative Agent shall have the right (but not the obligation) to seek the advice or concurrence of the Required Lenders with respect to the manner in which the amendments contemplated by this Section 2.18(c) are drafted and implemented and, if the Administrative Agent seeks such advice or concurrence, it shall be permitted to enter into such amendments with the Borrowers in accordance with any instructions actually received by such Required Lenders and shall also be entitled to refrain from entering into such amendments with the Borrowers unless and until it shall have received such advice or concurrence, it being understood that this provision relates solely to the manner of implementation; provided, however, that whether or not there has been a request by the Administrative Agent for any such advice or concurrence, all such amendments entered into with the Borrowers by the Administrative Agent hereunder shall be binding and conclusive on the Lenders. Without limiting the foregoing, in connection with any Extensions the Loan Parties party thereto shall (at their expense) amend (and the Administrative Agent is hereby directed to amend) any Mortgage that has a maturity date prior to the then latest Maturity Date so that such maturity date is extended to the then latest Maturity Date (or such later date as may be advised by local counsel to the Administrative Agent).

-89-



(d)    In connection with any Extension, the Parent Borrower shall provide the Administrative Agent at least 10 Business Days' (or such shorter period as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent) prior written notice thereof, and shall agree to such procedures, if any, as may be established by, or acceptable to, the Administrative Agent, in each case acting reasonably to accomplish the purposes of this Section 2.18.
Section 2.19.    Cash Dominion. Upon the commencement and during the continuance of a Cash Dominion Period, all amounts in the Collection Accounts of each Domestic Loan Party (net of any customary minimum balance as may be required to be maintained in such Collection Account by the depositary bank or as otherwise agreed by the Parent Borrower and the Administrative Agent) shall be remitted daily to the Administrative Agent's Account and the Administrative Agent shall, so long as no Application Event has occurred and is continuing, apply the amounts so received, first, to prepay outstanding Extraordinary Advances, second, to prepay outstanding Swing Loans, third, to prepay Standard Revolving Credit Loans, fourth, to Cash Collateralize outstanding Standard Letter of Credit Usage, fifth, to prepay FILO Revolving Credit Loans, and sixth, to Cash Collateralize outstanding FILO Letter of Credit Usage and, thereafter the Administrative Agent shall remit the remaining funds, if any, to the applicable Loan Party or such other Person entitled thereto under applicable law.
ARTICLE III    
TAXES, YIELD PROTECTION AND ILLEGALITY
Section 3.01.    Taxes.
(a)    Any and all payments by the Loan Parties to or for the account of the Administrative Agent or any Lender under any Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for Taxes, excluding, in the case of the Administrative Agent and each Lender, (i) Taxes imposed on or measured by its net income (however denominated) or gross income, or franchise Taxes, in each case (A) imposed by the United States or by any jurisdiction (or, in either case, any political subdivision thereof) under the Laws of which the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, is organized or in which the Administrative Agent or such Lender has a lending office or its principal office or (B) that are Other Connection Taxes, (ii) branch profits Taxes, and any similar Taxes, imposed by the United States or any other jurisdiction in which any such lending office or principal executive office is located or in which the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, is deemed to be doing business, (iii) in the case of a Lender, the amount of U.S. Federal withholding Taxes imposed on amounts payable to or for the account of such Lender with respect to an applicable interest in a Loan or Commitment pursuant to applicable Law as in effect on the date on which (x) such Lender acquires such interest in the Loan or Commitment (other than pursuant to an assignment request by the Parent Borrower) or (y) such Lender changes its lending office (other than a change made at the request of the Parent Borrower under Section 3.06(c)), except in each case to the extent that, pursuant to this Section 3.01(a), amounts with respect to such Taxes were payable either to such Lender's assignor immediately before such Lender became a party hereto or to such Lender immediately before it changed its lending office, (iv) U.S. Taxes attributable to a Lender's or the Administrative Agent's failure to comply with Section 10.14(a) and (v) any U.S. Federal withholding Taxes imposed pursuant to

-90-



FATCA (all such non‑excluded Taxes being hereinafter referred to as "Indemnified Taxes" and all such excluded Taxes being hereinafter referred to as "Excluded Taxes"). If any withholding agent shall be required by any applicable Laws to deduct or withhold any Tax from or in respect of the payment of any sum payable to the Administrative Agent or any Lender by or on account of any obligations of the Loan Parties under any Loan Document, then (w) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, the sum payable by the Loan Parties shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 3.01(a)), the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as applicable, receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (x) such withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deductions and withholdings, (y) such withholding agent shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant taxation authority or other Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Laws and (z) within 30 days after the date of such payment to such Governmental Authority, such withholding agent shall furnish to the Administrative Agent (which shall forward the same to the applicable Lender) or to such Lender (as the case may be) the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof to the extent such a receipt is issued therefor, or such other written evidence of payment thereof that is reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(b)    In addition, the Borrowers agree to pay any and all present or future stamp, court or documentary Taxes and any other excise, property, intangible or mortgage recording Taxes or similar charges or levies that arise from any payment made under any Loan Document or from the execution, delivery, performance, enforcement or registration of, or otherwise with respect to, any Loan Document (hereinafter referred to as "Other Taxes").
(c)    The Borrowers, on behalf of themselves and each of their Subsidiaries that is a Loan Party agree to jointly and severally indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes and Other Taxes imposed on or with respect to any payment made by or on account of any obligation of the Loan Parties under any Loan Document (including any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 3.01), in each case to the extent payable or paid by the Administrative Agent or such Lender (or their Affiliates), as applicable, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto (including reasonable attorneys' and tax advisors' fees and expenses), whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. Payment under this Section 3.01(c) shall be made within 30 days after the date such Lender or the Administrative Agent makes a demand therefor. A certificate setting forth the amount of such payment delivered by a Lender or the Administrative Agent to the Borrowers shall be conclusive absent the manifest error.
(d)    If any Lender or the Administrative Agent determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the Loan Parties or for which the Loan Parties have indemnified any Lender or the Administrative Agent, as the case may be, pursuant to this Section 3.01 or the Security Agreement, then such Lender or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, shall pay the amount of such refund, net of any expenses incurred by, or any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed on, such Lender or the Administrative Agent, to the Borrowers within 30 days of the receipt of such amount; provided that the Parent

-91-



Borrower agrees, upon the request of such Lender or the Administrative Agent, to promptly return the amount of such refund (or a portion thereof) to such Lender or the Administrative Agent (together with the amount of any applicable penalties, interest or other charges in respect thereof) if such Lender or the Administrative Agent is required to repay such refund (or a portion thereof) to the relevant Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrowers shall not be entitled to review the tax records or financial information of any Lender or the Administrative Agent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 3.01(d), in no event will the Administrative Agent or any Lender be required to pay any amount to the Loan Parties pursuant to this Section 3.01(d) the payment of which would place the Administrative Agent or such Lender (and their Affiliates) in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the Administrative Agent or such Lender would have been in if the indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid.
(e)    The Administrative Agent may withhold any Taxes required to be deducted and withheld from any payment under any of the Loan Documents, including Taxes for which the Borrowers are not required to pay additional amounts pursuant to Section 3.01(a). Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within 10 days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrowers have not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrowers to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender's failure to comply with the provisions of Section 10.06 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 Section 3.01(e). The obligations of the Lenders under this Section 3.01(e) shall survive the termination of the Commitments, the repayment of all other Obligations hereunder and the resignation of the Administrative Agent.
(f)    For the purposes of this Section 3.01, the term "Lender" shall include any SPC.
Section 3.02.    Illegality. If any Lender determines that any Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its applicable Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Revolving Credit Loans whose interest is determined by reference to the Eurodollar Rate, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Eurodollar Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell, or to take deposits of, Dollars in the London interbank market, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Parent Borrower through the Administrative Agent, (i) any obligation of such Lender to make or continue Eurodollar Rate Loans or to convert Base Rate Loans to Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be suspended and (ii) if such notice asserts the

-92-



illegality of such Lender making or maintaining Base Rate Loans the interest rate on which is determined by reference to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate, the interest rate on which Base Rate Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate, in each case until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon receipt of such notice, (x) the Borrowers shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), prepay or, if applicable, convert all Eurodollar Rate Loans of such Lender to Base Rate Loans (the interest rate on which Base Rate Loans of such Lender shall, if necessary to avoid such illegality, be determined by the Administrative Agent without reference to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate), either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor, if such Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Rate Loans to such day, or immediately, if such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Eurodollar Rate Loans and (y) if such notice asserts the illegality of such Lender determining or charging interest rates based upon the Eurodollar Rate, the Administrative Agent shall during the period of such suspension compute the Base Rate applicable to such Lender without reference to the Eurodollar Rate component thereof until the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by such Lender that it is no longer illegal for such Lender to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Eurodollar Rate. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Borrowers shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted. Each Lender agrees to designate a different Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for such notice and will not, in the good faith judgment of such Lender, otherwise be materially disadvantageous to such Lender.
Section 3.03.    Inability to Determine Rates.
(a)    If the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders determine that for any reason (i) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the Eurodollar Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan or in connection with an existing or proposed Base Rate Loan, or (ii) that the Eurodollar Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed Eurodollar Rate Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding such Revolving Credit Loan, or that Dollar deposits are not being offered to banks in the London interbank eurodollar market for the applicable amount and the Interest Period of such Eurodollar Rate Loan, the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrowers and each Lender. Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain Eurodollar Rate Loans shall be suspended, and (y) in the event of a determination described in the preceding sentence with respect to the Eurodollar Rate component of the Base Rate, such component shall not be used in determining the Base Rate, in each case until the Administrative Agent (in the case of clause (ii) of the immediately preceding sentence, acting upon the instruction of the Required Lenders) revokes such notice. Until receipt of such notice, (A) any Committed Loan Notice that requests the conversion of any Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be ineffective, and such Borrowing shall be converted to or continued on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a Base Rate Loan and (B) any Committed Loan Notice for a Eurodollar Rate Loan shall be treated as a request for a Base Rate Loan. Upon the receipt of such notice, the Borrowers may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurodollar Rate Loans.

-93-



(b)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Administrative Agent has or the Required Lenders have made the determination described in the preceding paragraph because the supervisor for the administrator of the Eurodollar Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent or any Lender has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the Eurodollar Rate shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans and which specifies the new rate that would be used in lieu thereof, and the Parent Borrower or the Administrative Agent shall so request, the Administrative Agent and the Parent Borrower shall negotiate in good faith to amend the definition of "Eurodollar Rate" and the other applicable provisions (including any appropriate adjustment to the Applicable Rate) to preserve the original intent thereof in light of such change (it being understood that (i) if, at any time, any rate is below zero under such amended definition, such rate shall be deemed to be zero at such time and (ii) any rate so amended will be determined giving due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such time); provided, that until so amended, such Loans will be handled as otherwise provided pursuant to the terms of this Section 3.03. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 10.01, 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 5 Business Days of the date notice of such amendment is provided to the Lenders, a written notice from Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such amendment.
Section 3.04.    Increased Cost; Reserves on Eurodollar Rate Loans.
(a)    Increased Costs Generally. If any Change in Law shall:
(i)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Lender (except any reserve requirement contemplated by Section 3.04(e)) or any L/C Issuer;
(ii)    subject the Administrative Agent, any Lender, any L/C Issuer or any other recipient of any payment to be made by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (iii) through (v) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or
(iii)    impose on any Lender or any L/C Issuer or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense affecting this Agreement or Eurodollar Rate Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein (other than Taxes);
and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making, converting to, continuing or maintaining any Loan the interest on which is determined by reference to the Eurodollar Rate (or, in the case of clause (ii) above, any Loan), or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan, or to increase the cost to such Lender or such L/C Issuer of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or participating in or maintaining Extraordinary Advances (or of maintaining its obligation to participate in or to issue any Letter of Credit or

-94-



Extraordinary Advances), or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender or such L/C Issuer hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount) then, upon request of such Lender or such L/C Issuer, the Borrowers will pay to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
(b)    Capital Requirements. If any Lender or any L/C Issuer determines that any Change in Law affecting such Lender or such L/C Issuer or any Lending Office of such Lender or such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's capital or on the capital of such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Lender or the Revolving Credit Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit, Swing Loans and Extraordinary Advances held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by such L/C Issuer, to a level below that which such Lender or such L/C Issuer or such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's policies and the policies of such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's holding company with respect to capital adequacy or liquidity requirements), then from time to time, upon request of such Lender or such L/C Issuer, the Borrowers will pay to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such L/C Issuer or such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's holding company for any such reduction suffered.
(c)    Certificates for Reimbursement. A certificate of a Lender or an L/C Issuer setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or such L/C Issuer or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in clause (a) or (b) of Section 3.04 and delivered to the Borrowers shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.
(d)    Delay in Requests. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or any L/C Issuer to demand compensation pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 3.04 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate a Lender or an L/C Issuer pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than 9 months prior to the date that such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as the case may be, notifies the Borrowers of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender's or such L/C Issuer's intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 9-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).
(e)    Reserves on Eurodollar Rate Loans. The Borrower shall pay to each Lender, as long as such Lender shall be required to maintain reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or including Eurocurrency funds or deposits, additional interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Eurodollar Rate Loan equal to the actual costs of such reserves allocated to such Revolving Credit Loan by such Lender (as determined by such Lender in good faith, which

-95-



determination shall be conclusive), which shall be due and payable on each date on which interest is payable on such Revolving Credit Loan; provided the Borrowers shall have received at least 10 days' prior notice (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of such additional interest from such Lender. If a Lender fails to give notice 10 days prior to the relevant Interest Payment Date, such additional interest shall be due and payable 10 days from receipt of such notice.
Section 3.05.    Compensation for Losses.  Upon demand of any Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) from time to time, the Borrowers shall promptly compensate such Lender for and hold such Lender harmless from any loss, cost or expense incurred by it as a result of:
(i)    any continuation, conversion, payment or prepayment of any Revolving Credit Loan other than a Base Rate Loan on a day other than the last day of the Interest Period for such Revolving Credit Loan (whether voluntary, mandatory, automatic, by reason of acceleration, or otherwise); or
(ii)    any failure by any Borrower (for a reason other than the failure of such Lender to make a Revolving Credit Loan) to prepay, borrow, continue or convert any Revolving Credit Loan other than a Base Rate Loan on the date or in the amount notified by such Borrower (including any such failure arising as a result of a revocation by such Borrower of any notice of prepayment, borrowing, continuation or conversion); or
(iii)    any assignment of a Eurodollar Rate Loan on a day other than the last day of the Interest Period therefor as a result of a request by a Borrower pursuant to Section 10.16;
including any loss of anticipated profits and any loss or expense arising from the liquidation or reemployment of funds obtained by it to maintain such Revolving Credit Loan or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained. The Borrowers shall also pay any customary administrative fees charged by such Lender in connection with the foregoing.
(b)    For purposes of calculating amounts payable by the Borrowers to the Lenders under this Section 3.05, each Lender shall be deemed to have funded each Eurodollar Rate Loan made by it at the Eurodollar Rate for such Revolving Credit Loan by a matching deposit or other borrowing in the London interbank eurodollar market for a comparable amount and for a comparable period, whether or not such Eurodollar Rate Loan was in fact so funded.
Section 3.06.    Matters Applicable to all Requests for Compensation.
(a)    A certificate of the Administrative Agent or any Lender claiming compensation under this Article III and setting forth the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. In determining such amount, the Administrative Agent or such Lender may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods.
(b)    If any Lender requests compensation under Section 3.04, or if the Borrowers are required to pay any material amount of Indemnified Taxes, Other Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 3.01,

-96-



then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its Revolving Credit Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or materially reduce amounts payable pursuant to Sections 3.01 or 3.04, as the case may be, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be materially disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrowers agree to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with such designation or assignment.
(c)    If any Lender requests compensation under Section 3.04, or if the Borrowers are required to pay any Indemnified Taxes, Other Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 3.01 and, in each case, the relevant Lender has declined to, or is unable to, designate a different lending office in accordance with Section 3.06(b), then the Borrowers may replace such Lender in accordance with Section 10.16 if such replacement would result in a reduction of such compensation or Taxes.
Section 3.07.    Survival. All of the Borrowers' obligations under this Article III shall survive termination of the Aggregate Commitments and repayment of all other Obligations hereunder.
ARTICLE IV

All certificates of property and general liability insurance are to be delivered to the Administrative Agent promptly (but in any event within 15 Business Days of the issuance or applicable amendment of any insurance policy), with lender's loss payable and additional insured endorsements, as applicable, in favor of the Administrative Agent and shall provide for not less than 30 days (10 days in the case of non-payment) prior written notice to the Administrative Agent of the exercise of any right of cancellation; provided, that such prior written notice shall not be required with respect to any insurance policy (other than a property insurance policy) to the extent the relevant insurer does not provide such written notice. If the Parent Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries fails to maintain such insurance, the Administrative Agent may, with prior notice to the Parent Borrower, arrange for such insurance, but at the Borrowers' expense and without any responsibility on the Administrative Agent's part for obtaining the insurance, the solvency of the insurance companies, the adequacy of the coverage, or the collection of claims.

-118-



extent such Pledged Equity and instruments are delivered to the Term Facility Administrative Agent or the Junior Term Facility Administrative Agent in accordance with the Intercreditor Agreement;
(iv)    within 20 Business Days (or such later date as the Administrative Agent shall agree in its sole discretion) after such request or the consummation of such acquisition or after the delivery of the Collateral Report or such Compliance Certificate, take, and cause such new Loan Party to take, whatever action (including the recording of Mortgages and the filing of Uniform Commercial Code financing statements) as may be necessary or advisable in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent to vest in the Administrative Agent (or in any representative of the Administrative Agent designated by it) a perfected security interest with the Requisite Priority (subject to Permitted Liens and the Intercreditor Agreement) on the properties purported to be subject to the Mortgages, pledges, assignments, Security Agreement Supplements and security agreements delivered pursuant to this Section 6.12, enforceable against all third parties in accordance with their terms (subject to the Intercreditor Agreement);

Neither the Parent Borrower nor any of its Subsidiaries shall fund any payment under this Agreement or any other Loan Document with proceeds derived from a transaction prohibited by Sanctions or Anti-Corruption and Anti-Money Laundering Laws or any manner that would cause the Parent Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries to be in breach of Sanctions or Anti-Corruption and Anti-Money Laundering Laws.

The Parent Borrower and the Subsidiaries will permit the Administrative Agent and any Persons designated by the Administrative Agent (including any consultants, accountants and appraisers retained by the Administrative Agent) to conduct (a) field examinations of the books and records of the Parent Borrower and the Subsidiaries relating to the Parent Borrower's computation of the Borrowing Base (or any component thereof) and the related reporting and control systems and (b) appraisals of the Inventory included in the Borrowing Base, all at such time or times as may be requested by the Administrative Agent in its Permitted Discretion; provided that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 10.04 or any other Loan Document, (i) unless an Increased Reporting Event has occurred, no more than one field examination and one appraisal in any calendar year shall be at the expense of the Loan Parties, (ii) during any calendar year in which an Increased Reporting Event has occurred, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to conduct up to two additional field examinations and collateral appraisals as it determines are necessary or appropriate in its Permitted Discretion, in each case at the expense of the Loan Parties, (iii) after the occurrence of and during the occurrence of an Event of Default, all field exams and appraisals shall be at the expense of the Loan Parties, and (iv) in the event that the Parent Borrower or any Subsidiary shall have consummated an Acquisition, without limitation of the foregoing the Parent Borrower may request that the Administrative Agent conduct or cause to be conducted (and, commercially and reasonably promptly upon such request, the Administrative Agent shall commence or cause to be commenced) a field examination and an appraisal with respect to the Accounts and Inventory acquired by the Domestic Loan Parties as a result thereof, and any such field examinations and appraisals shall be at the expense of the Loan Parties (and shall not count towards the limit set forth in the immediately preceding proviso). For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent may conduct field examinations and appraisals in addition to those set forth in the immediately preceding sentence, but such additional field examinations and appraisals shall not be at the expense of the Loan Parties. For purposes of this paragraph, it is understood and agreed that a single field examination or appraisal may be conducted at multiple relevant sites and involve one or more Loan Parties and their assets.

Unless the Administrative Agent otherwise agrees, once established, the Domestic Loan Parties will maintain such primary depository and treasury management relationships with the Administrative Agent, another Lender or one or more of their respective Affiliates (or a Person that was the Administrative Agent, a Lender or one of their respective Affiliates as of the date such relationship was entered into) at all times during the term of the Agreement.
(b)    The Parent Borrower shall, and shall cause the other Domestic Loan Parties to, (i) instruct all of its Account Debtors to forward payment of the amounts owed by such Account Debtors directly to a Collection Account (other than with respect to Accounts of Account Debtors consisting of the United States or any department, agent or instrumentality of the United States, if the terms of such Accounts or applicable Law prohibit payment into a Deposit Account subject to a Control Agreement), and (ii) deposit or cause to be deposited promptly, and in any event no later than the third Business Day (or the first Business Day during any Cash Dominion Period) after the date of receipt thereof (or such later date as the Administrative Agent may agree in its sole discretion), all of such Domestic Loan Party's collections and proceeds of ABL Priority Collateral (including those sent directly by any such Account Debtors to such Domestic Loan Party) into a Collection Account.

Subject to Section 8.02, the Administrative Agent agrees not to issue an Activation Instruction with respect to any Collection Account unless a Cash Dominion Period is in effect. The Administrative Agent agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to rescind an Activation Instruction once no Cash Dominion Period is in effect.
(e)    So long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and subject to compliance with Section 6.17(a) of this Agreement, the Parent Borrower may amend Schedule 6.17 to add or replace a bank or securities intermediary and shall upon such addition or replacement provide to the Administrative Agent an amended Schedule 6.17; provided, however, that, other than in the case of Deposit Accounts or Securities Accounts acquired as part of a Permitted Acquisition, (i) such prospective bank or securities intermediary shall be satisfactory to the Administrative Agent in its Permitted Discretion (it being understood that any prospective bank or securities intermediary that is a Lender on the Closing Date or an Affiliate of such a Lender shall be deemed to be satisfactory to the Administrative Agent in its Permitted Discretion), and (ii) prior to the time of the opening of such Deposit Account (excluding any Excluded Deposit Account but including each Collection Account) or Securities Account (excluding any Excluded Securities Account), the applicable Domestic Loan Party, the applicable bank or securities intermediary and the Administrative Agent shall have executed and delivered a Control Agreement. Each Domestic Loan Party shall close any of its Deposit Accounts and Securities Account as promptly as practicable and in any event within 120 days after notice from the Administrative Agent that (x) the operating performance, funds transfer, or availability procedures or performance of such bank or securities intermediary with respect to any Control Agreement or any control agreement unrelated to this Agreement is no longer acceptable in the Administrative Agent's Permitted Discretion or (y) the Administrative Agent's liability under any Control Agreement with such bank or securities intermediary is no longer acceptable in the Administrative Agent's Permitted Discretion.
Section 6.18.    Inventory.
(a)    The Parent Borrower shall, and shall cause each Domestic Loan Party to, use their commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a Collateral Access Agreement with respect to each location from time to time set forth on Schedule 6.18 that is a leased real property where any Inventory is located or where any warehouseman, bailee or consignee has possession of any Inventory, and in each case such Inventory has a Value in excess of $10,000,000 (i) in the case of any such location set forth on such Schedule 6.18 on the Closing Date, as promptly as reasonably practicable after the Closing Date and, in any event, within 60 days after the Closing Date (or such later date as the Administrative Agent shall agree in its sole discretion) and (ii) in the case of any such location added to such Schedule 6.18 after the Closing Date pursuant to clause (b) below where Inventory with a Value in excess of $10,000,000 is located, as promptly as reasonably practicable
