Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
General
On November 27, 2018, EVERTEC, Inc., (“EVERTEC” or the “Company”) and EVERTEC Group, LLC, (“EVERTEC Group” or “Borrower”), which is a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of EVERTEC, entered into a credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) governing the senior secured credit facilities, consisting of a $220.0 million term loan A facility that matures on November 27, 2023, a $325.0 million term loan B facility that matures on November 27, 2024 and a $125.0 million revolving credit facility that matures on November 27, 2023, with a syndicate of lenders and Bank of America, N.A. (“Bank of America”), as administrative agent, collateral agent, swingline lender and L/C issuer. The material terms and conditions of the senior secured credit facilities are summarized below. The description of the Credit Agreement, and the guarantees and collateral arrangements thereunder, contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement, Guarantee Agreement and Collateral Agreement, which are attached hereto as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3.
Scheduled Amortization Payments
The term loan A facility provides for amortization in the amount of 1.25% of the original principal amount of the term loan A facility during each of the first twelve quarters starting from the quarter ending March 31, 2019, 1.875% during each of the four subsequent quarters and 2.50% during each of the final three quarters, with the balance payable on the final maturity date.
The term loan B facility provides for quarterly amortization payments totaling 1.00% per annum of the original principal amount of the term loan B facility, with the balance payable on the final maturity date.
Voluntary Prepayments and Reduction and Termination of Commitments
The terms of the senior secured credit facilities allow EVERTEC Group to prepay loans and permanently reduce the loan commitments under the senior secured credit facilities at any time, subject to the payment of customary LIBOR breakage costs, if any, provided that, in connection with certain refinancing or repricing of the term loan B facility on or prior to the date which is six months after the closing date of the Credit Agreement, a prepayment premium of 1.00% will be required.
Interest
The interest rates under the term loan A facility and revolving credit facility are based on, at EVERTEC Group’s option, (a) (x) adjusted LIBOR plus (y) an interest margin of 2.25% or (b) (x) the greater of (i) Bank of America’s “prime rate,” (ii) the Federal Funds Effective Rate plus 0.5% and (iii) adjusted LIBOR plus 1.0% (“ABR”) plus (y) an interest margin of 1.25%. The interest rates under the term loan B facility are based on, at EVERTEC Group’s option, (a) (x) adjusted LIBOR plus (y) an interest margin of 3.50% or (b) (x) ABR plus (y) an interest margin of 2.50%. The interest margins under the term loan A facility and revolving credit facility are subject to reduction based on achievement of specified total secured net leverage ratio.
Guarantees and Collateral
EVERTEC Group’s obligations under the senior secured credit facilities and under any cash management, interest rate protection or other hedging arrangements entered into with a lender or any affiliate thereof are guaranteed by EVERTEC and each of EVERTEC’s existing wholly-owned subsidiaries (other than EVERTEC Group) and subsequently acquired or organized subsidiaries, subject to certain exceptions.
Subject to certain exceptions, the senior secured credit facilities are secured to the extent legally permissible by substantially all of the assets of (1) EVERTEC, including a perfected pledge of all of the limited liability company interests of EVERTEC Intermediate Holdings, LLC (“Holdings”), (2) Holdings, including a perfected pledge of all of the limited liability company interests of EVERTEC Group and (3) EVERTEC Group and the subsidiary guarantors, including but not limited to: (a) a pledge of substantially all capital stock held by EVERTEC Group or any guarantor and (b) a perfected security interest in substantially all tangible and intangible assets of EVERTEC Group and each guarantor.

Covenants
The senior secured credit facilities contain affirmative and negative covenants that the Company believes are usual and customary for a senior secured credit agreement. The negative covenants in the senior secured credit facilities include, among other things, limitations (subject to exceptions) on the ability of EVERTEC and its restricted subsidiaries to:
declare dividends and make other distributions;
redeem or repurchase capital stock;
grant liens;
make loans or investments (including acquisitions);





merge or enter into acquisitions;
sell assets;
enter into any sale or lease-back transactions;
incur additional indebtedness;
prepay, redeem or repurchase certain indebtedness;
modify the terms of certain debt;
restrict dividends from subsidiaries;
change the business of EVERTEC or its subsidiaries; and
enter into transactions with their affiliates.
 
 In addition, the term loan A facility and the revolving credit facility require EVERTEC to maintain a maximum total secured net leverage ratio.
Events of Default
The events of default under the senior secured credit facilities include, without limitation, nonpayment, material misrepresentation, breach of covenants, insolvency, bankruptcy, certain judgments, change of control (as defined in the Credit Agreement) and cross-events of default on material indebtedness.
Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.
Termination of Existing Senior Secured Credit Facilities
On November 27, 2018, the net proceeds received by EVERTEC Group from the senior secured credit facilities under the Credit Agreement, together with other cash available to EVERTEC Group, were used, among other things, to refinance EVERTEC Group’s previous senior secured credit facilities, which consisted of a $191.4 million term A loan facility and a $379.0 million term B loan facility, under the credit agreement, dated as of April 17, 2013 and as subsequently amended, among EVERTEC Intermediate Holdings, LLC, EVERTEC Group, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, collateral agent, swingline lender and L/C issuer, and the lenders party thereto.

(x)The words “asset” and “property” shall be construed to have the same meaning and effect and to refer to any and all tangible and intangible assets and properties, including cash, securities, accounts and contract rights.
(b)In the computation of periods of time from a specified date to a later specified date, the word “from” means “from and including;” the words “to” and “until” each mean “to but excluding;” and the word “through” means “to and including.”
(c)Any financial ratios shall be calculated by dividing the appropriate component by the other component, carrying the result to one place more than the number of places by which such ratio is expressed herein and rounding the result up or down to the nearest number (with a rounding-up if there is no nearest number).
(d)Any reference herein to a merger, transfer, consolidation, amalgamation, assignment, sale, disposition or transfer, or similar term, shall be deemed to include a division of or by a limited liability company, or an allocation of assets to a series of limited liability companies (or the unwinding of such a division or allocation), as if it were a merger, transfer, consolidation, amalgamation, assignment, sale, disposition or transfer, or similar term, as applicable, to, of or with a separate Person.

SECTION 1.03.    Accounting Terms
.
Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all terms of an accounting or financial nature shall be construed in accordance with GAAP, as in effect from time to time; provided, that, if Parent notifies the Administrative Agent that Parent requests an amendment to any provision hereof to eliminate the effect of any change occurring after the Closing Date in GAAP or in the application thereof on the operation of such provision (or if the Administrative Agent notifies Parent that the Required Lenders request an amendment to any provision hereof for such purpose), regardless of whether any such notice is given before or after such change in GAAP or in the application thereof, then (x) such provision shall be interpreted on the basis of GAAP as in effect and applied immediately before such change shall have become effective until such notice shall have been withdrawn or such provision amended in accordance herewith, and (y) Parent shall provide to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders financial statements and other documents required under this Agreement or as reasonably requested hereunder setting forth a reconciliation between calculations of such ratio or requirement made before and after giving effect to such change in GAAP. Notwithstanding any other provision contained herein, (i) all terms of an accounting or financial nature used herein shall be construed, and all computations of amounts and ratios referred to herein shall be made, without giving effect to any election under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards 159 (or any other Financial Accounting Standard having a similar result or effect) to value any Indebtedness or other liabilities of Parent or any of its Subsidiaries at “fair value”, as defined therein and (ii) the accounting for operating leases and capital leases under GAAP as in effect on the Closing Date (including Accounting Standards Codification 840) shall apply for the purposes of determining compliance with the provisions of this Agreement, including the definition of “Capital Lease Obligations”.
SECTION 1.04.     Exchange Rates; Currency Equivalents

a.The Administrative Agent or the L/C Issuer shall determine the Spot Rates as of each Revaluation Date to be used for calculating Dollar Equivalent amounts and Outstanding Amounts denominated in Alternative Currencies or L/C Alternative Currencies, respectively. Such Spot Rates shall become effective as of such Revaluation Date and shall be the Spot Rates employed in converting any amounts between the applicable currencies until the next Revaluation Date to occur. Except for purposes of financial statements delivered by Loan Parties hereunder or calculating financial covenants hereunder or except as otherwise provided herein, the applicable amount of any currency (other than Dollars) for purposes of the Loan Documents shall be such Dollar Equivalent amount as so determined by the Administrative Agent or the L/C Issuer, as applicable. No Default or Event of Default shall arise as a result of any limitation or threshold set forth in Dollars in Article VI or paragraph (f) or (j) of Section 7.01 being exceeded solely as a result of changes in currency exchange rates from those rates applicable on the first day of the fiscal quarter in which such determination occurs or in respect of which such determination is being made.
b.Wherever in this Agreement in connection with a Borrowing, conversion, continuation or prepayment of a Eurocurrency Loan or the issuance, amendment or extension of a Letter of Credit, an amount, such as a required minimum or multiple amount, is expressed in Dollars, but such Borrowing, Eurocurrency Loan or Letter of Credit is denominated in an Alternative Currency or an L/C Alternative Currency, such amount shall be the relevant Alternative Currency Equivalent of such Dollar amount (rounded to the nearest unit of such Alternative Currency or L/C Alternative Currency, with 0.5 of a unit being rounded upward), as determined by the Administrative Agent or the L/C Issuer, as the case may be.

SECTION 1.05.     Additional Alternative Currencies
.
(e)The Borrower may from time to time request that Eurocurrency Revolving Loans be made in a currency other than an existing Alternative Currency and/or Letters of Credit be issued in a currency other than an existing L/C Alternative Currency; provided that such requested currency is a lawful currency (other than Dollars) that is readily available and freely transferable and convertible into Dollars. In the case of any such request with respect to the making of Eurocurrency Revolving Loans, such request shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent; and in the case of any such request with respect to the issuance of Letters of Credit, such request shall be subject to the approval of the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer.
(f)Any such request shall be made to the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m., 20 Business Days prior to the date of the desired Credit Event (or such other time or date as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent and, in the case of any such request pertaining to Letters of Credit, the L/C Issuer, in its or their sole discretion). In the case of any such request pertaining to Eurocurrency Loans, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Revolving Facility Lender thereof; and in the case of any such request pertaining to Letters of Credit, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the L/C Issuer thereof. Each Revolving Facility Lender (in the case of any such request pertaining to Eurocurrency Loans) or the L/C Issuer (in the case of a request pertaining to Letters of Credit) shall notify the Administrative Agent, not later than 11:00 a.m., 10 Business Days after receipt of such request whether it consents, in its sole discretion, to the making of Eurocurrency Loans or the issuance of Letters of Credit, as the case may be, in such requested currency.





(g)Any failure by a Revolving Facility Lender or the L/C Issuer, as the case may be, to respond to such request within the time period specified in the preceding sentence shall be deemed to be a refusal by such Revolving Facility Lender or the L/C Issuer, as the case may be, to permit Eurocurrency Loans to be made or Letters of Credit to be issued in such requested currency. If the Administrative Agent and all the Revolving Facility Lenders consent to making Eurocurrency Loans in such requested currency, the Administrative Agent shall so notify the Borrower and such currency shall thereupon be deemed for all purposes to be an “Alternative Currency” hereunder for purposes of any Borrowings of Eurocurrency Revolving Loans; and if the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer consent to the issuance of Letters of Credit in such requested currency, the Administrative Agent shall so notify the Borrower and such currency shall thereupon be deemed for all purposes to be an “L/C Alternative Currency” hereunder for purposes of any Letter of Credit issuances. If the Administrative Agent shall fail to obtain consent to any request for an additional currency under this Section 1.05, the Administrative Agent shall promptly so notify the Borrower. The Required Class Lenders of the Revolving Facility may give notice to the Borrower that any Alternative Currency ceases to be an Alternative Currency hereunder, and such notice shall be effective 20 Business Days after such notice. The Administrative Agent or the L/C Issuer may give notice to the Borrower than any Alternative Currency or L/C Alternative Currency, respectively, is no longer readily available and freely transferable and convertible into Dollars, and upon such notice such currency shall cease to be an Alternative Currency or L/C Alternative Currency, as applicable, hereunder.

SECTION 1.06.     Change of Currency
.
(h)Each obligation of the Borrower to make a payment denominated in the national currency unit of any member state of the European Union that adopts the Euro as its lawful currency after the Closing Date shall be redenominated into Euro at the time of such adoption (in accordance with the EMU Legislation). If, in relation to the currency of any such member state, the basis of accrual of interest expressed in this Agreement in respect of that currency shall be inconsistent with any convention or practice in the London interbank market for the basis of accrual of interest in respect of the Euro, such expressed basis shall be replaced by such convention or practice with effect from the date on which such member state adopts the Euro as its lawful currency; provided that if any Borrowing in the currency of such member state is outstanding immediately prior to such date, such replacement shall take effect, with respect to such Borrowing, at the end of the then current Interest Period.
(i)Each provision of this Agreement shall be subject to such reasonable changes of construction as the Administrative Agent may from time to time specify to be appropriate to reflect the adoption of the Euro by any member state of the European Union and any relevant market conventions or practices relating to the Euro.
(j)Each provision of this Agreement also shall be subject to such reasonable changes of construction as the Administrative Agent may from time to time specify to be appropriate to reflect a change in currency of any other country and any relevant market conventions or practices relating to the change in currency.

SECTION 1.07. Times of Day; Rates
.
Unless otherwise specified, all references herein to times of day shall be references to Local Time.
The Administrative Agent does not warrant, nor accept responsibility, nor shall the Administrative Agent have any liability with respect to the administration, submission or any other matter related to the rates in the definition of “Eurocurrency Rate” or with respect to any comparable or successor rate thereto.
SECTION 1.08. Letter of Credit Amounts
.
Unless otherwise specified herein, the amount of a Letter of Credit at any time shall be deemed to be the Dollar Equivalent of the stated amount of such Letter of Credit in effect at such time; provided, however, that with respect to any Letter of Credit that, by its terms or the terms of any Issuer Document related thereto, provides for one or more automatic increases in the stated amount thereof, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be the Dollar Equivalent of the maximum stated amount of such Letter of Credit after giving effect to all such increases, whether or not such maximum stated amount is in effect at such time.
SECTION 1.09.     Limited Condition Transactions
.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, for purposes of (a) determining compliance with any financial ratio or test, any First Lien Secured Net Leverage Ratio test, any Total Secured Net Leverage Ratio test or any Total Net Leverage Ratio test and/or the availability under any baskets set forth in this Agreement expressed as a percentage of EBITDA or Consolidated





Total Assets or (b) other than for purposes of satisfying conditions precedent to any Credit Event, determining the accuracy of representations and warranties and/or whether a Default or Event of Default (or any type of Default or Event of Default) shall have occurred and be continuing, in each case in connection with any Limited Condition Transaction (including the assumption or incurrence of Indebtedness in connection therewith), the determination of whether the relevant condition is satisfied may be made,
(i)in the case of any acquisition or Investment (including with respect to any Indebtedness assumed or incurred in connection therewith), at the time of (or on the basis of the financial statements for the most recently ended Test Period at the time of), at the election of Parent, either (A) the execution of the definitive agreement with respect to such acquisition or Investment or (B) the consummation of such acquisition or Investment, and
(ii)in the case of any repayment of Indebtedness (including with respect to any Indebtedness assumed or incurred in connection therewith), at the time of (or on the basis of the financial statements for the most recently ended Test Period at the time of), at the election of the Borrower, (A) delivery of irrevocable (which may be conditional) notice with respect to such payment of Indebtedness or (B) the making of such repayment,
in each case, after giving effect, on a Pro Forma Basis, to (1) the relevant Limited Condition Transaction and/or any related Indebtedness (including the intended use of proceeds thereof) and (2) to the extent definitive documents in respect thereof have been executed or the declaration of any notice with respect to any repayment of Indebtedness has been given (which definitive documents, declaration or notice has not terminated or expired without the consummation thereof), any additional Limited Condition Transaction and/or any related Indebtedness (including the intended use of proceeds thereof) that Parent has elected to be determined as set forth in this Section 1.09. If Parent has exercised such an election under this Section 1.09 in respect of any Limited Condition Transaction or related Indebtedness, then, in connection with any subsequent calculation of financial ratios, tests, caps or baskets expressed as a percentage of EBITDA (other than any such test under Section 6.06 or 6.10) on or following the date of determination of whether the relevant condition is satisfied, as elected by Parent in accordance with this Section 1.09, and prior to the earlier of (x) the date on which such Limited Condition Transaction or related Indebtedness is consummated and (y) the date that the definitive agreements, declaration or notice, as applicable, for such Limited Condition Transaction or related Indebtedness are terminated, abandoned, withdrawn or expire, as applicable, without consummation thereof, any such financial ratio, test, cap or basket shall be calculated on a Pro Forma Basis assuming such Limited Condition Transaction or related Indebtedness and the other transactions in connection therewith have been consummated.

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein:
(a)    each Term A Lender agrees to make Term A Loans to the Borrower on the Closing Date in a principal amount not to exceed such Lender’s Term A Loan Commitment;
(b)    each Term B Lender agrees to make Term B Loans to the Borrower on the Closing Date in a principal amount not to exceed such Lender’s Term B Loan Commitment;
(c)    each Revolving Facility Lender agrees to make Revolving Facility Loans to the Borrower from time to time during the Availability Period in Dollars or any Alternative Currency in an aggregate principal amount that will not result in (i) such Lender’s Revolving Facility Credit Exposure exceeding such Lender’s Revolving Facility Commitment or (ii) the total Revolving Facility Credit Exposure exceeding the total Revolving Facility Commitment; and
(d)    within the foregoing limits and subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Borrower may borrow, prepay and reborrow Revolving Facility Loans. Amounts repaid or prepaid in respect of Term Loans may not be reborrowed.
SECTION 2.02. Loans and Borrowings
.
(k)Each Revolving Facility Loan and Term Loan shall be made as part of a Borrowing consisting of Loans under the same Class and of the same Type made by the Lenders ratably in accordance with their respective Commitments under the applicable Facility. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan required to be made by it shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligations hereunder; provided, that the Commitments of the Lenders are several and no Lender shall be responsible for any other Lender’s failure to make Loans as required.
(l)Subject to Section 2.15, each Borrowing (other than a Swingline Borrowing) shall be comprised entirely of ABR Loans or Eurocurrency Loans as the Borrower may request in accordance herewith. Each Swingline Borrowing shall be an





ABR Borrowing. Each Lender at its option may make any ABR Loan or Eurocurrency Loan by causing any domestic or foreign branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan; provided, that any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay such Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and such Lender shall not be entitled to any amounts payable under Section 2.16 solely in respect of increased costs resulting from such exercise and existing at the time of such exercise.
(m)At the commencement of each Interest Period for any Eurocurrency Borrowing, such Borrowing shall be in an aggregate amount not less than the Borrowing Minimum and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Revolving Facility Borrowing, that is an integral multiple of the Borrowing Multiple. Subject to Section 2.04(c) and Section 2.05(e), at the time that each Term Borrowing or Revolving Facility Borrowing is made, such Borrowing shall be in an aggregate amount that is not less than the Borrowing Minimum and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Revolving Facility Borrowing, that is an integral multiple of the Borrowing Multiple; provided, that an ABR Revolving Facility Borrowing may be in an aggregate amount that is equal to the entire unused balance of the Commitments. Borrowings of more than one Type and under more than one Facility may be outstanding at the same time; provided, that there shall not at any time be more than a total of 10 Eurocurrency Borrowings outstanding under this Agreement.
(n)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, any Lender may exchange, continue or rollover all of the portion of its Loans in connection with any refinancing, extension, loan modification or similar transaction permitted by the terms of this Agreement, pursuant to a cashless settlement mechanism approved by the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, and such Lender.

SECTION 2.03. Requests for Borrowings
.
To request a Revolving Facility Borrowing and/or a Term Borrowing, the Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of such request by telephone (a) in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, not later than 10:00 a.m. (x) three Business Days before the date of any proposed Borrowing denominated in Dollars and (y) four Business Days before the date of any proposed Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency or (b) in the case of an ABR Borrowing, not later than 10:00 a.m., on the date of the proposed Borrowing. Each such telephonic Borrowing Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by hand delivery or facsimile to the Administrative Agent of a written Borrowing Request in a form approved by the Administrative Agent and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower. Each such telephonic and written Borrowing Request shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
(i)the Class of Loans comprising such Borrowing;
(ii)the aggregate amount of the requested Borrowing;
(iii)the date of such Borrowing, which shall be a Business Day;
(iv)whether such Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Borrowing; provided that any Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency shall be a Eurocurrency Borrowing;
(v)in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, the initial Interest Period to be applicable thereto, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period”;
(vi)in the case of a Eurocurrency Revolving Facility Borrowing, the currency in which such Borrowing is to be denominated (which shall be Dollars or an Alternative Currency); and
(vii)the location and number of the Borrower’s account to which funds are to be disbursed.
If no election as to the currency of any Revolving Facility Borrowing is made, then the requested Borrowing shall be made in Dollars. If no election as to the Type of Revolving Facility Borrowing or Term Borrowing is specified, then the requested Borrowing shall be (x) an ABR Borrowing in the case of Loans denominated in Dollars or (y) a Eurocurrency Borrowing with an Interest Period of one month’s duration in the case of Revolving Facility Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency. If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested Eurocurrency Borrowing, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration. Promptly following receipt of a Borrowing Request in accordance with this Section, the Administrative Agent shall advise each applicable Lender of the details thereof and of the amount of such Lender’s Loan to be made as part of the requested Borrowing.
SECTION 2.04. Swingline Loans
.
(o)The Swingline. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Swingline Lender may, in its sole discretion, agree, in reliance upon the agreements of the other Revolving Facility Lenders set forth in this Section 2.04, to make loans in Dollars (each such loan, a “Swingline Loan”) to the Borrower from time to time on any Business Day during the Availability Period in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time outstanding the Swingline Sublimit, notwithstanding the fact that such Swingline Loans, when aggregated with the Revolving Facility Percentage of the Outstanding Amount of Revolving Facility Loans and L/C Obligations of the Revolving Facility Lender acting as Swingline Lender, may exceed the amount of such





Lender’s Revolving Facility Commitment; provided, however, that after giving effect to any Swingline Loan, (i) the Revolving Facility Credit Exposure shall not exceed the total Revolving Facility Commitments, and (ii) the aggregate Revolving Facility Credit Exposure of any Revolving Facility Lender (other than the Swingline Lender) shall not exceed such Revolving Facility Lender’s Revolving Facility Commitment, and provided, further, that the Borrower shall not use the proceeds of any Swingline Loan to refinance any outstanding Swingline Loan. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, the Borrower may borrow under this Section 2.04, prepay under Section 2.12, and reborrow under this Section 2.04. Each Swingline Loan shall be an ABR Loan. Immediately upon the making of a Swingline Loan, each Revolving Facility Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Swingline Lender a risk participation in such Swingline Loan in an amount equal to the product of such Lender’s Revolving Facility Percentage times the amount of such Swingline Loan.
(p)Borrowing Procedures. Each Swingline Borrowing shall be made upon the Borrower’s irrevocable notice to the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent, which may be given by telephone. Each such notice must be received by the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. on the requested borrowing date, and shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed, which shall be a minimum of $100,000 and (ii) the requested borrowing date, which shall be a Business Day. Each such telephonic notice must be confirmed promptly by delivery to the Swingline Lender and the Administrative Agent of a written Swingline Borrowing Request, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower. Promptly after receipt by the Swingline Lender of any telephonic Swingline Loan request, the Swingline Lender will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has also received such Swingline Loan request and, if not, the Swingline Lender will notify the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) of the contents thereof. Unless the Swingline Lender has received notice (by telephone or in writing) from the Administrative Agent (including at the request of any Lender) prior to 2:00 p.m. on the date of the proposed Swingline Borrowing (A) directing the Swingline Lender not to make such Swingline Loan as a result of the limitations set forth in the provisos to the first sentence of Section 2.04(a), or (B) that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 4.01 is not then satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Swingline Lender may, not later than 3:00 p.m. on the borrowing date specified in such Swingline Borrowing Request, make the amount of its Swingline Loan available to the Borrower at the account of the Borrower specified in such Swingline Borrowing Request.
(q)Refinancing of Swingline Loans.
(i)    The Swingline Lender at any time in its sole and absolute discretion may request, on behalf of the Borrower (which hereby irrevocably authorizes the Swingline Lender to so request on its behalf), that each Revolving Facility Lender make an ABR Revolving Loan in an amount equal to such Revolving Facility Lender’s Revolving Facility Percentage of the amount of Swingline Loans then outstanding. Such request shall be made in writing (which written request shall be deemed to be a Borrowing Request for purposes hereof) and in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.02, without regard to the Borrowing Minimum and Borrowing Multiples, but subject to the unutilized portion of the Revolving Facility Commitments and the conditions set forth in Section 4.01. The Swingline Lender shall furnish the Borrower with a copy of the applicable Borrowing Request promptly after (other than the delivery of a Borrowing Request) delivering such notice to the Administrative Agent. Each Revolving Facility Lender shall make an amount equal to its Revolving Facility Percentage of the amount specified in such Borrowing Request available to the Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds (and the Administrative Agent may apply Cash Collateral available with respect to the applicable Swingline Loan) for the account of the Swingline Lender at the Administrative Agent’s Office for Dollar-denominated payments not later than 1:00 p.m. on the day specified in such Borrowing Request, whereupon, subject to Section 2.04(c)(ii), each Revolving Facility Lender that so makes funds available shall be deemed to have made an ABR Revolving Loan to the Borrower in such amount. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the Swingline Lender.
(ii)    If for any reason any Swingline Loan cannot be refinanced by such an ABR Revolving Facility Borrowing in accordance with Section 2.04(c)(i), the request for ABR Revolving Loans submitted by the Swingline Lender as set forth herein shall be deemed to be a request by the Swingline Lender that each of the Revolving Facility Lenders fund its risk participation in the relevant Swingline Loan and each Revolving Facility Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender pursuant to Section 2.04(c)(i) shall be deemed payment in respect of such participation.
(iii)    If any Revolving Facility Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender any amount required to be paid by such Revolving Facility Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.04(c) by the time specified in Section 2.04(c)(i), the Swingline Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Revolving Facility Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the Swingline Lender at a rate per annum equal to the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Swingline Lender in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Swingline Lender in connection with the foregoing. If such Revolving Facility Lender pays such amount (with interest and fees as aforesaid), the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s ABR Revolving Loan included in the relevant ABR Revolving Facility Borrowing or funded participation in the relevant Swingline Loan, as the case may be. A certificate of the





Swingline Lender submitted to any Revolving Facility Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this clause (iii) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(iv)    Each Revolving Facility Lender’s obligation to make ABR Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.04(c)(i) or to purchase and fund risk participations in Swingline Loans pursuant to Section 2.04(c)(ii) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against the Swingline Lender, the Borrower or any other person for any reason whatsoever, (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default, or (C) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided, however, that each Lender’s obligation to make ABR Revolving Loans pursuant to Section 2.04(c)(i) is subject to the conditions set forth in Section 4.01. No such funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the Borrower to repay Swingline Loans, together with interest as provided herein.
(r)Repayment of Participations.
(i)    At any time after any Revolving Facility Lender has purchased and funded a risk participation in a Swingline Loan, if the Swingline Lender receives any payment on account of such Swingline Loan, the Swingline Lender will distribute to such Revolving Facility Lender its Revolving Facility Percentage thereof in the same funds as those received by the Swingline Lender.
(ii)    If any payment received by the Swingline Lender in respect of principal or interest on any Swingline Loan is required to be returned by the Swingline Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 8.10 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Swingline Lender in its discretion), each Revolving Facility Lender shall pay to the Swingline Lender its Revolving Facility Percentage thereof on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate. The Administrative Agent will make such demand upon the request of the Swingline Lender. The obligations of the Revolving Facility Lenders under this clause shall be absolute and unconditional and survive Payment in Full and the termination of this Agreement.
(s)Interest for Account of Swingline Lender. The Swingline Lender shall be responsible for invoicing the Borrower for interest on the Swingline Loans. Until each Revolving Facility Lender funds its ABR Revolving Loan or risk participation pursuant to this Section 2.04 to refinance such Revolving Facility Lender’s Revolving Facility Percentage of any Swingline Loan, interest in respect of such Revolving Facility Percentage shall be solely for the account of the Swingline Lender.
(t)Payments Directly to Swingline Lender. The Borrower shall make all payments of principal and interest in respect of the Swingline Loans directly to the Swingline Lender.

SECTION 2.05. Letters of Credit
.
(u)General. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, in addition to the Loans provided for in Section 2.01, the Borrower may request that the L/C Issuer, in reliance on the agreements of the Revolving Facility Lenders set forth in this Section 2.05, issue, at any time and from time to time during the period from and including the Closing Date until the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, Letters of Credit denominated in Dollars or in one or more L/C Alternative Currencies for its own account or the account of any of its Subsidiaries in such form as is acceptable to the L/C Issuer in its reasonable determination. Letters of Credit issued hereunder shall constitute utilization of the Revolving Facility Commitments. All Existing Letters of Credit shall be deemed to have been issued pursuant hereto, and from and after the Closing Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof.
(v)Notice of Issuance, Amendment, Extension, Reinstatement or Renewal.
(i)To request the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or the amendment of the terms and conditions, extension of the terms and conditions, extension of the expiration date, or reinstatement of amounts paid, or renewal of an outstanding Letter of Credit), the Borrower shall deliver (or transmit by electronic communication, if arrangements for doing so have been approved by the L/C Issuer) to the L/C Issuer and to the Administrative Agent not later than (i) in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in Dollars, 11:00 a.m. at least two Business Days (or such later date and time as the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer may agree in a particular instance in their sole discretion) prior to the proposed issuance date or date of amendment, as the case may be and (ii) in the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an L/C Alternative Currency, 11:00 a.m. at least four Business Days (or such later date and time as the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer may agree in a particular instance in their sole discretion) prior to the proposed issuance date or date of amendment, as the case may be, in each case, a notice requesting the issuance of a Letter of Credit, or identifying the Letter of Credit to be amended, extended, reinstated or renewed, and specifying the date of issuance, amendment, extension, reinstatement or renewal (which shall be a Business Day), the date on which such Letter of Credit is to expire (which shall comply with clause (d) of this Section 2.05), the amount of such Letter of Credit, the name and address of the beneficiary thereof, the purpose and nature of the requested Letter of Credit and such other





information as shall be necessary to prepare, amend, extend, reinstate or renew such Letter of Credit. If requested by the L/C Issuer, the Borrower also shall submit a Letter of Credit Application and reimbursement agreement on the L/C Issuer’s standard form in connection with any request for a Letter of Credit. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions of any form of Letter of Credit Application and reimbursement agreement or other agreement submitted by the Borrower to, or entered into by the Borrower with, the L/C Issuer relating to any Letter of Credit, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall control.
(ii)If the Borrower so requests in any applicable Letter of Credit Application (or the amendment of an outstanding Letter of Credit), the L/C Issuer may, in its sole and absolute discretion, agree to issue a standby Letter of Credit that has automatic extension provisions (each, an “Auto-Extension Letter of Credit”); provided that any such Auto-Extension Letter of Credit must permit the L/C Issuer to prevent any such extension at least once in each twelve-month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof not later than a day (the “Non-Extension Notice Date”) in each such twelve-month period to be agreed upon by the Borrower and the L/C Issuer at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by the L/C Issuer, the Borrower shall not be required to make a specific request to the L/C Issuer for any such extension. Once an Auto-Extension Letter of Credit has been issued, the Revolving Facility Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the L/C Issuer to permit the extension of such Letter of Credit at any time to an expiry date not later than the date permitted pursuant to Section 2.05(d); provided, however, that the L/C Issuer shall not (x) permit any such extension if (A) the L/C Issuer has determined that it would not be permitted at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its extended form under the terms hereof except that the expiration date may be extended to a date that is no more than one year from the then-current expiration date, or (y) it has received notice (which may be in writing or by telephone (if promptly confirmed in writing)) on or before the day that is five Business Days before the Non-Extension Notice Date from the Administrative Agent that the Required Class Lenders under the Revolving Facility have elected not to permit such extension or (ii) be obligated to permit such extension if it has received notice (which may be in writing or by telephone (if promptly confirmed in writing)) on or before the day that is seven Business Days before the Non-Extension Notice Date from the Administrative Agent, any Revolving Facility Lender or the Borrower that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 4.01 is not then satisfied, and in each such case directing the L/C Issuer not to permit such extension.
(iii)If the Borrower so requests in any applicable Letter of Credit Application, the L/C Issuer may, in its sole and absolute discretion, agree to issue a standby Letter of Credit that permits the automatic reinstatement of all or a portion of the stated amount thereof after any drawing thereunder (each, an “Auto-Reinstatement Letter of Credit”). Unless otherwise directed by the L/C Issuer, the Borrower shall not be required to make a specific request to the L/C Issuer to permit such reinstatement. Once an Auto-Reinstatement Letter of Credit has been issued, except as provided in the following sentence, the Revolving Facility Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the L/C Issuer to reinstate all or a portion of the stated amount thereof in accordance with the provisions of such Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such Auto-Reinstatement Letter of Credit permits the L/C Issuer to decline to reinstate all or any portion of the stated amount thereof after a drawing thereunder by giving notice of such non-reinstatement within a specified number of days after such drawing (the “Non-Reinstatement Deadline”), the L/C Issuer shall not permit such reinstatement if it has received a notice (which may be by telephone or in writing) on or before the day that is five Business Days before the Non-Reinstatement Deadline (A) from the Administrative Agent that the Required Class Lenders under the Revolving Facility have elected not to permit such reinstatement or (B) from the Administrative Agent, any Revolving Facility Lender or the Borrower that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 4.01 is not then satisfied (treating such reinstatement as an L/C Credit Extension for purposes of this clause) and, in each case, directing the L/C Issuer not to permit such reinstatement.
(w)Limitations on Amounts, Issuance and Amendment. A Letter of Credit shall be issued, amended, extended, reinstated or renewed only if (and upon issuance, amendment, extension, reinstatement or renewal of each Letter of Credit the Borrower shall be deemed to represent and warrant that), after giving effect to such issuance, amendment, extension, reinstatement or renewal (x) the Outstanding Amount of all L/C Obligations shall not exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit that would be in effect at any time prior to the expiration of all Letters of Credit outstanding at such time (after giving effect to the scheduled maturity of any Revolving Facility Commitment occurring prior to the expiration of all such Letters of Credit), (y) the total Revolving Facility Credit Exposure shall not exceed the total Revolving Facility Commitments at any time prior to the expiration of all Letters of Credit outstanding at such time (after giving effect to the scheduled maturity of any Revolving Facility Commitment occurring prior to the expiration of all such Letters of Credit) and (z) no Lender’s Revolving Facility Credit Exposure shall exceed such Lender’s Revolving Facility Commitments.
(i)The L/C Issuer shall not be under any obligation to issue any 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 the L/C Issuer from issuing such Letter of Credit, or any Change in Law shall prohibit, or request that the L/C Issuer refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or such Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon the L/C Issuer with respect to such Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which the L/C Issuer is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the Closing Date, or shall impose upon the L/C Issuer any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the Closing Date and which the L/C Issuer in good faith deems material to it;





(B)the issuance of such Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of the L/C Issuer applicable to letters of credit;
(C)except as otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer, such Letter of Credit is in an initial stated amount less than $100,000, in the case of a commercial Letter of Credit, or $100,000, in the case of a standby Letter of Credit;
(D)except as otherwise agreed by the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer, such Letter of Credit is to be denominated in a currency other than Dollars or an L/C Alternative Currency;
(E)such Letter of Credit contains any provisions for automatic reinstatement of the stated amount after any drawing thereunder; or
(F)a default of any Revolving Facility Lender’s obligations to fund under Section 2.05(f) exists or any Revolving Facility Lender is at such time a Defaulting Lender hereunder, unless the L/C Issuer has entered into satisfactory arrangements with the Borrower or such Revolving Facility Lender to eliminate the L/C Issuer’s risk with respect to such Revolving Facility Lender, including the delivery of Cash Collateral, satisfactory to the L/C Issuer (in its sole discretion) with the Borrower or such Lender to eliminate the L/C Issuer’s actual or potential Fronting Exposure (after giving effect to Section 2.27) with respect to the Defaulting Lender arising from either the Letter of Credit then proposed to be issued or that Letter of Credit and all other L/C Obligations as to which the L/C Issuer has actual or potential Fronting Exposure, as it may elect in its sole discretion.
(ii)The L/C Issuer shall be under no obligation to amend any Letter of Credit if (A) the L/C Issuer would have no obligation at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms hereof, or (B) the beneficiary of such Letter of Credit does not accept the proposed amendment to such Letter of Credit.
(iii)The L/C Issuer shall not amend any Letter of Credit if the L/C Issuer would not be permitted at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its amended form under the terms hereof.
(x)Expiration Date. Each Letter of Credit shall have a stated expiration date no later than the earlier of (i) the date twelve months after the date of the issuance of such Letter of Credit (or, in the case of any extension of the expiration date thereof, whether automatic or by amendment, twelve months after the then‑current expiration date of such Letter of Credit) and (ii) the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, unless such expiring date shall be approved, with respect to clause (i), by the L/C Issuer and the Required Revolving Lenders or, with respect to clause (ii), by the L/C Issuer and all of the Revolving Facility Lenders.
(y)Participations.
(i)By the issuance of a Letter of Credit (or an amendment to a Letter of Credit increasing the amount or extending the expiration date thereof), and without any further action on the part of the L/C Issuer or the Lenders, the L/C Issuer hereby grants to each Revolving Facility Lender, and each Revolving Facility Lender hereby acquires from the L/C Issuer, a participation in such Letter of Credit equal to such Lender’s Revolving Facility Percentage of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. Each Revolving Facility Lender acknowledges and agrees that its obligation to acquire participations pursuant to this clause (e) in respect of Letters of Credit is absolute, unconditional and irrevocable and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including any amendment, extension, reinstatement or renewal of any Letter of Credit or the occurrence and continuance of a Default or reduction or termination of the Revolving Facility Commitments.
(ii)In consideration and in furtherance of the foregoing, each Revolving Facility Lender hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the L/C Issuer, such Lender’s Revolving Facility Percentage of each L/C Disbursement made by the L/C Issuer not later than 1:00 p.m. on the Business Day specified in the notice provided by the Administrative Agent to the Revolving Facility Lenders pursuant to Section 2.05(f) until such L/C Disbursement is reimbursed by the Borrower or at any time after any reimbursement payment is required to be refunded to the Borrower for any reason, including after the Revolving Facility Maturity Date. Such payment shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or reduction whatsoever. Each such payment shall be made in the same manner as provided in Section 2.07 with respect to Loans made by such Lender (and Section 2.07 shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to the payment obligations of the Revolving Facility Lenders pursuant to this Section 2.05), and the Administrative Agent shall promptly pay to the L/C Issuer the amounts so received by it from the Lenders. Promptly following receipt by the Administrative Agent of any payment from the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.05(f), the Administrative Agent shall distribute such payment to the L/C Issuer or, to the extent that the Revolving Facility Lenders have made payments pursuant to this clause (e) to reimburse the L/C Issuer, then to such Lenders and the L/C Issuer as their interests may appear. Any payment made by a Lender pursuant to this clause (e) to reimburse the L/C Issuer for any L/C Disbursement shall not constitute a Loan and shall not relieve the Borrower of its obligation to reimburse such L/C Disbursement.
(iii)Each Revolving Facility Lender further acknowledges and agrees that its participation in each Letter of Credit will be automatically adjusted to reflect such Lender’s Revolving Facility Percentage of the aggregate amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit at each time such Lender's Revolving Facility Commitment is amended pursuant to the operation of Section 2.22 or 2.25, as a result of an assignment in accordance with Section 9.04 or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement.
(iv)If any Revolving Facility Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the L/C Issuer any amount required to be paid by such Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.05(e), then, without limiting the other provisions of this Agreement, the L/C Issuer shall be entitled to recover from such Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to L/C Issuer at a rate per annum equal to the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the L/C Issuer in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, plus





any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the L/C Issuer in connection with the foregoing. If such Lender pays such amount (with interest and fees as aforesaid), the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Revolving Facility Loan included in the relevant Revolving Facility Borrowing or L/C Disbursement Participation. A certificate of the L/C Issuer submitted to any Revolving Facility Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this clause (e)(iv) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(z)Reimbursement. If the L/C Issuer shall make any L/C Disbursement in respect of a Letter of Credit, the Borrower shall reimburse the L/C Issuer in respect of such L/C Disbursement by paying to the Administrative Agent an amount equal to such L/C Disbursement not later than 12:00 noon on (i) the Business Day that the Borrower receives notice of such L/C Disbursement, if such notice is received prior to 10:00 a.m. or (ii) the Business Day immediately following the day that the Borrower receives such notice, if such notice is not received prior to such time; provided that, if such L/C Disbursement is not less than Borrowing Minimum, the Borrower may, subject to the conditions to borrowing set forth herein, request in accordance with Section 2.03 or Section 2.04 that such payment be financed with a Borrowing of ABR Loans or Swingline Loan in an equivalent amount and, to the extent so financed, the Borrower’s obligation to make such payment shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting Borrowing of ABR Loans or Swingline Loan. In the case of a Letter of Credit denominated in an L/C Alternative Currency, the Borrower shall reimburse the L/C Issuer in Dollars, unless the L/C Issuer shall have specified in such notice that it will accept reimbursement in the L/C Alternative Currency in which such Letter of Credit was so denominated. In the case of any such reimbursement in Dollars of a drawing under a Letter of Credit denominated in an L/C Alternative Currency, the L/C Issuer shall notify the Borrower of the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of the drawing promptly following the determination thereof. If the Borrower fails to make such payment when due, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Revolving Facility Lender of the applicable L/C Disbursement, the payment then due from the Borrower in respect thereof (the “Unreimbursed L/C Disbursement”) and such Lender’s Revolving Facility Percentage thereof. In such event, the Borrower shall be deemed to have requested a Borrowing of ABR Revolving Loans to be disbursed on the date of payment by the L/C Issuer under a Letter of Credit in an amount equal to the Unreimbursed L/C Disbursement, without regard to the Borrowing Minimum or Borrowing Multiple for the principal amount of ABR Revolving Loans, but subject to the amount of the unutilized portion of the aggregate Revolving Facility Commitments and the conditions set forth in Section 4.01 (other than the delivery of a Borrowing Request). Any notice given by the L/C Issuer or the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.05(f) may be given by telephone if immediately confirmed in writing; provided that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice.
(aa)Obligations Absolute.
(i)The obligation of the Borrower to reimburse the L/C Issuer for each drawing under each Letter of Credit and to repay each L/C Disbursement shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement under all circumstances, including the following:
(A)any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any Letter of Credit, or any term or provision herein or therein;
(B)the existence of any claim, counterclaim, setoff, defense or other right that the Borrower or any Subsidiary may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit (or any person for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), the L/C Issuer or any other person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or by such Letter of Credit or any agreement or instrument relating thereto, or any unrelated transaction;
(C)any draft, demand, certificate or other document presented under such Letter of Credit that appears on its face to be valid proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement in such draft or other document being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; or any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under such Letter of Credit;
(D)waiver by the L/C Issuer of any requirement that exists for the L/C Issuer’s protection and not the protection of the Borrower or any waiver by the L/C Issuer which does not in fact materially prejudice the Borrower;
(E)honor of a demand for payment presented electronically even if such Letter of Credit requires that demand be in the form of a draft;
(F)any payment made by the L/C Issuer in respect of an otherwise complying item presented after the date specified as the expiration date of, or the date by which documents must be received under such Letter of Credit if presentation after such date is authorized by the UCC, the ISP or the UCP, as applicable;
(G)any payment by the L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate that does not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or any payment made by the L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit to any person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in-possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law;
(H)any adverse change in the relevant exchange rates or in the availability of the relevant L/C Alternative Currency to the Borrower or any Subsidiary or in the relevant currency markets generally;
(I)any amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from all or any of the provisions of this Agreement, any Letter of Credit or any other Loan Document; or





(J)any other event or circumstance whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might, but for the provisions of this Section 2.05, constitute a legal or equitable discharge of, or provide a right of setoff against, the Borrower’s obligations hereunder.
(ii)The Borrower shall promptly examine a copy of each Letter of Credit and each amendment thereto that is delivered to it and, in the event of any claim of noncompliance with the Borrower’s instructions or other irregularity, the Borrower will immediately notify the L/C Issuer. The Borrower shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any such claim against the L/C Issuer and its correspondents unless such notice is given as aforesaid.
(iii)None of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, the L/C Issuer, or any of their Related Parties shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of or in connection with the issuance or transfer of any Letter of Credit by the L/C Issuer or any payment or failure to make any payment thereunder (irrespective of any of the circumstances referred to in the preceding sentence), or any error, omission, interruption, loss or delay in transmission or delivery of any draft, notice or other communication under or relating to any Letter of Credit (including any document required to make a drawing thereunder), any error in interpretation of technical terms, any error in translation or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of the L/C Issuer; provided that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse the L/C Issuer from liability to the Borrower to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to consequential damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by the Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by the Borrower that are caused by the L/C Issuer’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof. The parties hereto expressly agree that, in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the L/C Issuer (as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction), the L/C Issuer shall be deemed to have exercised care in each such determination, and that:
(A)the L/C Issuer may replace a purportedly lost, stolen, or destroyed original Letter of Credit or missing amendment thereto with a certified true copy marked as such or waive a requirement for its presentation;
(B)the L/C Issuer may accept documents that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and may make payment upon presentation of documents that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit and without regard to any non-documentary condition in such Letter of Credit;
(C)the L/C Issuer shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to decline to accept such documents and to make such payment if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit; and
(D)this sentence shall establish the standard of care to be exercised by the L/C Issuer when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof (and the parties hereto hereby waive, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any standard of care inconsistent with the foregoing).
Without limiting the foregoing, none of the Administrative Agent, the Lenders, the L/C Issuer, or any of their Related Parties shall have any liability or responsibility by reason of (i) any presentation that includes forged or fraudulent documents or that is otherwise affected by the fraudulent, bad faith, or illegal conduct of the beneficiary or other Person, (ii) the L/C Issuer declining to take-up documents and make payment (A) against documents that are fraudulent, forged, or for other reasons by which that it is entitled not to honor or (B) following a Borrower’s waiver of discrepancies with respect to such documents or request for honor of such documents or (iii) the L/C Issuer retaining proceeds of a Letter of Credit based on an apparently applicable attachment order, blocking regulation, or third-party claim notified to such L/C Issuer.
(ab)Applicability of ISP and UCP. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the L/C Issuer and the Borrower when a Letter of Credit is issued, (i) the rules of the ISP shall apply to each standby Letter of Credit, and (ii) the rules of the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits (the “UCP”), as most recently published by the International Chamber of Commerce at the time of issuance shall apply to each commercial Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the L/C Issuer shall not be responsible to the Borrower for, and the L/C Issuer’s rights and remedies against the Borrower shall not be impaired by, any action or inaction of the L/C Issuer required or permitted under any law, order, or practice that is required or permitted to be applied to any Letter of Credit or this Agreement, including the Law or any order of a jurisdiction where the L/C Issuer or the beneficiary is located, the practice stated in the ISP or UCP, as applicable, or in the decisions, opinions, practice statements, or official commentary of the ICC Banking Commission, the Bankers Association for Finance and Trade - International Financial Services Association (BAFT-IFSA), or the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice, whether or not any Letter of Credit chooses such law or practice.
(ac)The L/C Issuer shall act on behalf of the Lenders with respect to any Letters of Credit issued by it and the documents associated therewith, and the L/C Issuer shall have all of the benefits and immunities (A) provided to the Administrative Agent in Article VIII with respect to any acts taken or omissions suffered by the L/C Issuer in connection with Letters of Credit issued by it or proposed to be issued by it and Issuer Documents pertaining to such Letters of Credit as fully as if the term “Administrative Agent” as used in Article VIII included the L/C Issuer with respect to such acts or omissions, and (B) as additionally provided herein with respect to the L/C Issuer.
(ad)Disbursement Procedures. The L/C Issuer for any Letter of Credit shall, within the time allowed by applicable laws or the specific terms of the Letter of Credit following its receipt thereof, examine all documents purporting to represent a demand for payment under such Letter of Credit. The L/C Issuer shall promptly after such examination notify the Administrative Agent





and the Borrower in writing of such demand for payment if the L/C Issuer has made or will make an L/C Disbursement thereunder; provided that any failure to give or delay in giving such notice shall not relieve the Borrower of its obligation to reimburse the L/C Issuer and the Lenders with respect to any such L/C Disbursement.
(ae)Interim Interest. If the L/C Issuer for any Letter of Credit shall make any L/C Disbursement, then, unless the Borrower shall reimburse such L/C Disbursement in full on the date such L/C Disbursement is made, the unpaid amount thereof shall bear interest, for each day from and including the date such L/C Disbursement is made to but excluding the date that the Borrower reimburses such L/C Disbursement, at the rate per annum then applicable to ABR Revolving Loans; provided that if the Borrower fails to reimburse such L/C Disbursement when due pursuant to Section 2.05(f), then Section 2.14(c) shall apply. Interest accrued pursuant to this clause (k) shall be for the account of the L/C Issuer, except that interest accrued on and after the date of payment by any Lender pursuant to Section 2.05(f) to reimburse the L/C Issuer shall be for the account of such Lender to the extent of such payment.
(af)Replacement of the Issuing Bank. Any L/C Issuer may be replaced at any time by written agreement among the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the replaced L/C Issuer and the successor L/C Issuer. The Administrative Agent shall notify the Lenders of any such replacement of any L/C Issuer. At the time any such replacement shall become effective, the Borrower shall pay all unpaid fees accrued for the account of the replaced L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 2.13. From and after the effective date of any such replacement, (x) the successor L/C Issuer shall have all the rights and obligations of an L/C Issuer under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit to be issued thereafter and (y) references herein to the term “L/C Issuer” shall be deemed to refer to such successor or to any previous L/C Issuer, or to such successor and all previous L/C Issuers, as the context shall require. After the replacement of an L/C Issuer hereunder, the replaced L/C Issuer shall remain a party hereto and shall continue to have all the rights and obligations of an L/C Issuer under this Agreement with respect to Letters of Credit issued by it prior to such replacement, but shall not be required to issue additional Letters of Credit.
(ag)Letters of Credit Issued for Subsidiaries. Notwithstanding that a Letter of Credit issued or outstanding hereunder is in support of any obligations of, or is for the account of, a Subsidiary, the Borrower shall be obligated to reimburse the L/C Issuer hereunder for any and all drawings under such Letter of Credit. The Borrower hereby acknowledges that the issuance of Letters of Credit for the account of Subsidiaries inures to the benefit of the Borrower, and that the Borrower’s business derives substantial benefits from the businesses of such Subsidiaries.

SECTION 2.06. [Reserved]
.
SECTION 2.07. Funding of Borrowings
.
(ah)Each Lender shall make each Term Loan or Revolving Facility Loan to be made by it hereunder available to the Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds at the Administrative Agent’s Office for the applicable currency not later than 1:00 p.m., in the case of any Loan denominated in Dollars, and not later than the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent in the case of any Revolving Facility Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency, in each case on the Business Day specified in the applicable Borrowing Request. The Administrative Agent will make such Loans available to the Borrower by promptly crediting the amounts so received, in like funds, to an account of the Borrower as specified in the Borrowing Request; provided, however, that if, on the date the Borrowing Request with respect to a Revolving Facility Borrowing denominated in Dollars is given by the Borrower, there are Unreimbursed L/C Disbursements outstanding, then the proceeds of such Borrowing, first, shall be applied to the payment in full of any such Unreimbursed L/C Disbursements, and, second, shall be made available to the Borrower as provided above.
(ai)Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed date of any Borrowing of Eurocurrency Loans (or, in the case of any Borrowing of ABR Loans, prior to 12:00 noon on the date of such Borrowing) that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with Section 2.07(a) (or, in the case of a Borrowing of ABR Loans, that such Lender has made such share available in accordance with and at the time required by Section 2.07(a)) and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the Borrower severally agree to pay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount in Same Day Funds with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is made available to the Borrower to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at (A) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, 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 (B) in the case of a payment to be made by the Borrower, the interest rate applicable to ABR Loans under the applicable Facility. If the Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to the Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, the Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to the Borrower the amount of such interest paid by the Borrower for





such period. If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Borrowing to the Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing. Any payment by the Borrower shall be without prejudice to any claim the Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make such payment to the Administrative Agent.

SECTION 2.08. Interest Elections
.
(aj)Each Borrowing of Revolving Facility Loans or Term Loans initially shall be of the Type specified in the applicable Borrowing Request and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, shall have an initial Interest Period as specified in such Borrowing Request. Thereafter, the Borrower may elect to convert such Borrowing to a different Type or to continue such Borrowing and, in the case of a Eurocurrency Borrowing, may elect Interest Periods therefor, all as provided in this Section; provided, that except as otherwise provided herein, a Eurocurrency Loan may be continued or converted only on the last day of an Interest Period for such Eurocurrency Loan. The Borrower may elect different options with respect to different portions of the affected Revolving Facility Borrowing or Term Borrowing, in which case each such portion shall be allocated ratably among the Lenders holding the Loans comprising such Borrowing, and the Loans comprising each such portion shall be considered a separate Borrowing. This Section shall not apply to Swingline Borrowings, which may not be converted or continued. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Loans denominated in any Alternative Currency may only be made, and maintained, as Eurocurrency Loans.
(ak)To make an election pursuant to this Section, the Borrower shall notify the Administrative Agent of such election by telephone by the time that a Borrowing Request would be required under Section 2.03 if such Borrower were requesting a Borrowing of the Type resulting from such election to be made on the effective date of such election. Each such telephonic Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall be confirmed promptly by hand delivery or facsimile to the Administrative Agent of a written Interest Election Request in the form of Exhibit D and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower.
(al)Each telephonic and written Interest Election Request shall be irrevocable and shall specify the following information in compliance with Section 2.02:
(i)the Borrowing to which such Interest Election Request applies and, if different options are being elected with respect to different portions thereof, the portions thereof to be allocated to each resulting Borrowing (in which case the information to be specified pursuant to clauses (iii) and (iv) below shall be specified for each resulting Borrowing);
(ii)the effective date of the election made pursuant to such Interest Election Request, which shall be a Business Day;
(iii)whether the resulting Borrowing is to be an ABR Borrowing or a Eurocurrency Borrowing; and
(iv)if the resulting Borrowing is a Eurocurrency Borrowing, the Interest Period to be applicable thereto after giving effect to such election, which shall be a period contemplated by the definition of the term “Interest Period.”
If any such Interest Election Request requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing but does not specify an Interest Period, then the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration.
(am)Promptly following receipt of an Interest Election Request, the Administrative Agent shall advise each Lender to which such Interest Election Request relates of the details thereof and of such Lender’s portion of each resulting Borrowing.
(an)If the Borrower fails to deliver a timely Interest Election Request with respect to a Eurocurrency Borrowing prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, then, unless such Borrowing is repaid as provided herein, at the end of such Interest Period such Borrowing shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing; provided, that any Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency shall instead be continued as a Eurocurrency Borrowing with an Interest Period of one month’s duration. Notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, if a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent so notifies the Borrower, then, so long as a Default or Event of Default is continuing (i) no outstanding Borrowing may be converted to or continued as a Eurocurrency Borrowing and (ii) unless repaid, each Eurocurrency Borrowing shall (A) in the case of such a Borrowing made in Dollars, be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto and (B) in the case of such a Borrowing made in an Alternative Currency be continued as a Eurocurrency Revolving Facility Borrowing with an Interest Period of one month’s duration.

SECTION 2.09. Termination and Reduction of Commitments

SECTION 2.12. Prepayment of Loans
.





(az)The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay any Loan in whole or in part, without premium or penalty (except as set forth in this Section and Section 2.17), in an aggregate principal amount that is an integral multiple of the Borrowing Multiple and not less than the Borrowing Minimum or, if less, the principal amount of Loans of any Class outstanding, upon prior notice to the Administrative Agent by telephone (confirmed by facsimile) (x) in the case of an ABR Loan, not less than one Business Day prior to the date of prepayment, (y) in the case of Eurocurrency Loans denominated in Dollars, not less than three Business Days prior to the date of prepayment and (z) in the case of a Eurocurrency Revolving Loan denominated in an Alternative Currency, not less than four Business Days prior to the date of prepayment. Each notice delivered by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.12(a) shall be irrevocable; provided, that such notice may state that it is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Borrower (by notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied. Each such notice shall be signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower and shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the Class(es) and the Type(s) of Loans to be prepaid and, if Eurocurrency Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of such Loans. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify each applicable Lender of its receipt of each such notice, and of the amount of such Lender’s pro rata share of such prepayment. In the event that, on or prior to the date which is six months after the Closing Date, the Borrower makes any prepayment or amendment of Term B Loans in connection with any Repricing Transaction (other than in connection with a Change of Control or Transformative Acquisition), the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable account of the Term B Lenders, a prepayment premium of 1% of the amount of the Term B Loans being so prepaid, refinanced, substituted or replaced or amended.
(ba)Subject to Section 2.12(e) and (f), the Borrower shall apply 100% of all Net Proceeds promptly upon receipt thereof by Parent or any Subsidiary to prepay Loans in accordance with clause (c) of Section 2.11; provided that, with respect to Net Proceeds from Asset Sales, the Borrower may use a portion of such Net Proceeds to prepay or repurchase Other First Lien Debt (to the extent required by the terms of such Other First Lien Debt) in an amount not to exceed the product of (x) the amount of such Net Proceeds multiplied by (y) a fraction, the numerator of which is the outstanding principal amount of the Other First Lien Debt and the denominator of which is the sum of the outstanding principal amount of such Other First Lien Debt and the outstanding principal amount of Term Loans.
(bb)Subject to Section 2.12(e) and (f), within five Business Days after financial statements have been delivered pursuant to Section 5.04(a) and the related Compliance Certificate has been delivered pursuant to Section 5.04(c) for any Excess Cash Flow Period, the Borrower shall prepay an aggregate principal amount of Term Loans equal to (i) the Applicable ECF Percentage of Excess Cash Flow for such Excess Cash Flow Period less (ii) (x) the aggregate principal amount of Term Loans prepaid pursuant to Section 2.12(a) or Section 2.12(g) (in the amount of actual cash expended), excluding (A) any prepayments funded with proceeds of long-term indebtedness (other than Revolving Facility Loans) or issuances of Equity Interests and (B) prepayments applied to amortization payments on the Term Loans due in such Excess Cash Flow Period, and (y) the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Facility Loans prepaid pursuant to Section 2.12(a) to the extent the Revolving Facility Commitments are correspondingly reduced pursuant to Section 2.09, in each case, during such Excess Cash Flow Period or after the end of such Excess Cash Flow Period but before the prepayment under this Section 2.12(c) for such period is due; provided that no such prepayment shall be due if the Applicable ECF Percentage of Excess Cash Flow for such Excess Cash Flow Period is less than $10,000,000.
(bc)If the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower at any time (including on any Revaluation Date) that the Revolving Facility Credit Exposure at such time exceeds an amount equal to 105% of the Revolving Facility Commitments then in effect, then, within two Business Days after receipt of such notice, the Borrower shall prepay the Revolving Facility Loans and/or the Swingline Loans and/or the Borrower shall Cash Collateralize the L/C Obligations in an aggregate amount (allocated among the Revolving Facility Loans, Swingline Loans and/or L/C Obligations as selected by the Borrower) sufficient to reduce the Revolving Facility Credit Exposure as of such date of payment to an amount not to exceed 100% of the Revolving Facility Commitments then in effect. The Administrative Agent may, at any time and from time to time after any such initial deposit of such Cash Collateral, require that additional Cash Collateral be provided in order to protect against the results of further exchange rate fluctuations.
(bd)Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, not less than three Business Days prior to the date (the “Required Prepayment Date”) on which the Borrower is required to make any Waivable Mandatory Prepayment, the Borrower shall notify Administrative Agent of the amount subject to such prepayment requirement, and Administrative Agent will promptly thereafter notify each Lender holding an outstanding Term Loan of the amount of such Lender’s pro rata share of such Waivable Mandatory Prepayment and such Lender’s option to refuse such amount. Each such Lender may exercise such option by giving written notice to the Administrative Agent of its election to do so on or before the second Business Day prior to the Required Prepayment Date (it being understood that any Lender which does not notify the Administrative Agent of its election to exercise such option on or before the first Business Day prior to the Required Prepayment Date shall be deemed to have elected, as of such date, to accept the Waivable Mandatory Prepayment). On the Required Prepayment Date, the Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent the amount of the Waivable Mandatory Prepayment less the amount of the Declined Amounts, which amount shall be applied by the Administrative Agent to prepay the Term Loans of those Lenders that have elected to accept such Waivable Mandatory Prepayment (which prepayment shall be applied to the scheduled installments of principal of the Term Loans in the applicable Class(es) of Term Loans in accordance with Section 2.11(c)), and (ii) the





Borrower may retain a portion of the Waivable Mandatory Prepayment in an amount equal to that portion of the Waivable Mandatory Prepayment otherwise payable to those Lenders that have elected to exercise such option and decline such Waivable Mandatory Prepayment (such declined amounts, the “Declined Amounts”). Such Declined Amounts retained by the Borrower may be used for any purpose not otherwise prohibited by this Agreement.
(be)Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 2.12 to the contrary, (i) to the extent that any repatriation (or other intercompany distribution or transfer) to the Borrower, directly or indirectly, from a Subsidiary organized outside the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico as a distribution or dividend (or other intercompany transfer) of any amount required to mandatorily prepay the Term Loans pursuant to Section 2.12(b) or (c) is prohibited or delayed by applicable local law from being repatriated to Puerto Rico, the portion of any such amount so affected will not be required to be applied to repay Term Loans at the times provided in Section 2.12(b) or (c), as applicable, for so long, but only for so long, as the applicable local law will not permit repatriation to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (the Borrower hereby agreeing to cause the applicable Subsidiary to promptly use commercially reasonable efforts to take all actions reasonably required by the applicable local law to permit such repatriation), and once such repatriation of any of such affected amount is permitted under the applicable local law, such affected amount will be promptly applied (net of additional taxes payable or reserved against as a result thereof) to the prepayment of the Term Loans pursuant to Section 2.12(b) or (c), as applicable, to the extent provided herein, (ii) to the extent that the Borrower has determined in good faith that repatriation (or other intercompany distribution or transfer) to the Borrower, directly or indirectly, from a Subsidiary organized outside the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico as a distribution or dividend (or other intercompany transfer) of any amount required to mandatorily prepay the Term Loans pursuant to Section 2.12(b) or (c) would have a material adverse tax cost consequence with respect to such affected amount, such amount so affected need not be prepaid at such time and (iii) to the extent that the Borrower has determined in good faith that repatriation to the Borrower, directly or indirectly, from a Subsidiary organized outside the United States and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico would give rise to a risk of liability for the directors of such Subsidiaries; provided that, in the case of clauses (i), (ii) and (iii), Parent and its Subsidiaries shall take commercially reasonable actions under applicable law to permit such repatriation and without material adverse tax consequences and without giving rise to risk of liability for the directors of the applicable Subsidiaries. The portion of any mandatory prepayment that may be subject to the operation of this Section 2.12(f) shall be limited (A) in the case of any prepayment pursuant to Section 2.12(b), to the Net Proceeds received by a Subsidiary that is not organized under the laws of the United States, any State thereof or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in respect of an Asset Sale by such Subsidiary and (B) in the case of any mandatory prepayment pursuant to Section 2.12(c), to the portion of the applicable Excess Cash Flow attributable to Subsidiaries that are not organized under the laws of the United States, any State thereof or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
(bf)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.12 or any other provision of this Agreement, the Borrower may prepay any Class or Classes of outstanding Term Loans (each, an “Auction Prepayment Offer”) at a discount to par pursuant to one or more auctions (each, an “Auction”) on the following basis (any such prepayment, an “Auction Prepayment”):
(i)All Term Lenders (other than Defaulting Lenders) of the applicable Class or Classes shall be permitted (but not required) to participate in each Auction. Any such Lender who elects to participate in an Auction may choose to offer all or part of such Lender’s Term Loans of the applicable Class for prepayment. Each Term Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent within the period specified in the offer if it determines to participate in such Auction.
(ii)Each Auction Prepayment shall be subject to the conditions that (A) the Administrative Agent shall have received a certificate to the effect that (I) immediately prior to and after giving effect to the Auction Prepayment and on the date of any delivery of an Auction Notice (as defined in Exhibit C), no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, (II) as of the date of the Auction Notice, the Borrower is not in possession of any material non-public information with respect to Parent or any of its subsidiaries that (x) has not been disclosed to the Lenders (other than Lenders that do not wish to receive material non-public information with respect to Parent or any of its subsidiaries) prior to such date and (y) if not disclosed to the Lenders, could reasonably be expected to have a material effect (whether negative or positive) upon, or otherwise be material to, (1) a Lender’s decision to participate in any Auction or (2) the market price of the Term Loans subject to such Auction, (III) each of the conditions to such Auction Prepayment has been satisfied and (IV) the Borrower shall be in Pro Forma Compliance after giving effect to the Auction Prepayment, (B) immediately prior to and after giving effect to the Auction Prepayment, the sum of the unused Revolving Facility Commitments plus unrestricted cash and cash equivalents held by Loan Parties shall not be less than $25,000,000, (C) each offer of prepayment made pursuant to this Section 2.12(g) must be in an amount not less than $1,000,000 in principal amount of Term Loans, calculated on the face amount thereof unless another amount is agreed to by the Administrative Agent, (D) no Auction Prepayment shall be made from the proceeds of any Revolving Facility Loan or Swingline Loan, (E) any Auction Prepayment shall be offered to all Lenders with Term Loans on a pro rata basis, (F) all Term Loans so prepaid by the Borrower shall automatically be canceled and retired by the Borrower on the applicable settlement date (and for the avoidance of doubt, may not be reborrowed) and (G) no more than one Auction Prepayment Offer may be ongoing at any one time and no more than five Auction Prepayment Offers may be made in any one fiscal year (unless the Administrative Agent consents in its reasonable discretion).
(iii)The Borrower must terminate any Auction Prepayment Offer if it fails to satisfy one or more of the conditions set forth above in Section 2.12(g)(ii) that are required to be met at the time at which the Term Loans would have been prepaid pursuant





to such Auction Prepayment Offer. If the Borrower commences any Auction Prepayment Offer (and all relevant requirements set forth above that are required to be satisfied at the time of the commencement of such Auction Prepayment Offer have in fact been satisfied), and if at such time of commencement the Borrower reasonably believes that all required conditions set forth above that are required to be satisfied at the time of the consummation of such Auction Prepayment Offer shall be satisfied, then the Borrower shall have no liability to any Term Lender or any other person for any termination of such Auction Prepayment Offer as a result of its failure to satisfy one or more of the conditions set forth above that are required to be met at the time that otherwise would have been the time of consummation of such Auction Prepayment Offer, and any such failure shall not result in any Default or Event of Default hereunder. All Term Loans prepaid by the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.12(g) shall be accompanied by all accrued interest on the par principal amount so prepaid to, but not including, the date of the Auction Prepayment. The par principal amount of Term Loans prepaid pursuant to this Section 2.12(g) shall be applied to reduce the final installment payment of principal thereof pursuant to Section 2.11(a)(i), (ii), (iii) or (iv), as applicable.
(iv)Each Auction shall comply with the Auction Procedures and any such other procedures established by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion and agreed to by the Borrower.
(v)The Auction Manager acting in its capacity as such hereunder shall be entitled to the benefits of the provisions of Article VIII and Section 9.05 to the same extent as if each reference therein to the “Administrative Agent” were a reference to the Auction Manager, and the Administrative Agent shall cooperate with the Auction Manager as reasonably requested by the Auction Manager in order to enable it to perform its responsibilities and duties in connection with each Auction Prepayment Offer.
(vi)This Section 2.12(g) shall neither (A) require the Borrower to undertake any Auction nor (B) limit or restrict the Borrower from making voluntary prepayments of Term Loans in accordance with Section 2.12(a).

SECTION 2.13. Fees

(bg)The Borrower agrees to pay to each Revolving Facility Lender (other than any Defaulting Lender), through the Administrative Agent, on the last Business Day of March, June, September and December in each year, and the date on which the Revolving Facility Commitments of all the Revolving Facility Lenders shall be terminated as provided herein, a commitment fee in Dollars (the “Commitment Fee”) on the actual daily amount of the Available Unused Commitment of such Lender under the Revolving Facility during the preceding quarter (or other period commencing with the Closing Date or ending with the date on which the last of the Revolving Facility Commitments of such Lender shall be terminated) at a rate equal to the Applicable Commitment Fee. All Commitment Fees shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 360 days. For the purpose of calculating any Revolving Facility Lender’s Commitment Fee, the outstanding Swingline Loans during the period for which such Revolving Facility Lender’s Commitment Fee is calculated shall be deemed to be zero. The Commitment Fee due to each Revolving Facility Lender shall commence to accrue on the Closing Date and shall cease to accrue on the date on which the last of the Commitments of such Revolving Facility Lender shall be terminated as provided herein.
(bh)The Borrower from time to time agrees to pay (i) to each Revolving Facility Lender (other than any Defaulting Lender), through the Administrative Agent, on the last Business Day of March, June, September and December of each year and on the date on which the Revolving Facility Commitments of all the Lenders shall be terminated as provided herein, a fee in Dollars (an “L/C Participation Fee”) on such Lender’s Revolving Facility Percentage of the daily aggregate Outstanding Amount of L/C Obligations (excluding the portion thereof attributable to Unreimbursed L/C Disbursements in respect of Letters of Credit) during the preceding quarter (or shorter period commencing with the Closing Date or ending with the Revolving Facility Maturity Date or the date on which the applicable Revolving Facility Commitments shall be terminated) at the rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin for Eurocurrency Revolving Facility Borrowings effective for each day in such period and (ii) directly to the L/C Issuer for its own account a fronting fee (x) with respect to each commercial Letter of Credit, at a rate per annum equal to the percentage separately agreed upon between the Borrower and the L/C Issuer, computed on the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such Letter of Credit, and payable upon the issuance thereof, (y) with respect to any amendment of a commercial Letter of Credit increasing the amount of such Letter of Credit, at a rate separately agreed between the Borrower and the L/C Issuer, computed on the Dollar Equivalent of the amount of such increase, and payable upon the effectiveness of such amendment, and (z) with respect to each standby Letter of Credit, at the rate per annum equal to 0.25%, computed on the Dollar Equivalent of the daily amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit on a quarterly basis in arrears (collectively under this clause (ii), “L/C Issuer Fees”). Such L/C Issuer Fees shall be due and payable on the last Business Day of each March, June, September and December in respect of the most recently-ended quarterly period (or portion thereof, in the case of the first payment), commencing with the first such date to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit, on the Revolving Facility Maturity Date and thereafter on demand. In addition, the Borrower shall pay directly to the L/C Issuer for its own account the customary issuance, presentation, amendment and other processing fees, and other standard costs and charges, of the L/C Issuer relating to letters of credit as from time to time in effect. Such customary fees and standard costs and charges are due and payable on demand and are nonrefundable. All L/C Participation Fees and L/C Issuer Fees shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days elapsed in a year of 360 days.





(bi)During the period commencing at the time any Lender became a Defaulting Lender until such time, if any, as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, no Commitment Fee shall accrue with respect to any of the applicable Revolving Facility Commitments of such Defaulting Lender. Any Commitment Fees owing to any Defaulting Lender which accrued during the period prior to the time such Lender became a Defaulting Lender and unpaid at such time shall be deferred and shall be payable only if and when such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender.
(bj)The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Administrative Agent, the agency fees set forth in the Fee Letter, as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, at the times specified therein (the “Administrative Agent Fees”).
(bk)All Fees shall be paid on the dates due, in immediately available funds, to the Administrative Agent for distribution, if and as appropriate, among the Lenders, except that L/C Issuer Fees shall be paid directly to the applicable L/C Issuers and Administrative Agent Fees shall be for the account of the Administrative Agent. Once paid, none of the Fees shall be refundable under any circumstances.

SECTION 2.14. Interest
.
(bl)The Revolving Facility Loans (including each Swingline Loan), the Term A Loans and the Term B Loans comprising each ABR Borrowing shall bear interest at (i) the ABR plus (ii) the Applicable Margin.
(bm)The Revolving Facility Loans, the Term A Loans and Term B Loans comprising each Eurocurrency Borrowing shall bear interest at (i) the Eurocurrency Rate for the Interest Period in effect for such Borrowing plus (ii) the Applicable Margin.
(bn)Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any principal of or interest on any Loan or any Fees or other amount payable by the Borrower hereunder is not paid when due, whether at stated maturity, upon acceleration or otherwise, such overdue amount shall bear interest, after as well as before judgment, at a rate per annum equal to (i) in the case of overdue principal of any Loan, 2.00% plus the rate otherwise applicable to such Loan as provided in the preceding paragraphs of this Section or (ii) in the case of any other amount, 2.00% plus the rate applicable to ABR Revolving Loans as provided in paragraph (a) of this Section; provided, that this paragraph (c) shall not apply to any Event of Default that has been waived by the Lenders pursuant to Section 9.08.
(bo)Accrued interest on each Loan shall be payable in arrears (i) on each Interest Payment Date for such Loan, (ii) in the case of Revolving Facility Loans, upon termination of the applicable Revolving Facility Commitments and (iii) in the case of the Term Loans, on the applicable Term Facility Maturity Date; provided, that (x) interest accrued pursuant to Section 2.14(c) shall be payable on demand, and (y) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of any Loan (other than a prepayment of an ABR Revolving Loan and any Swingline Loan prior to the end of the Availability Period), accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment.
(bp)Except as otherwise specifically provided for herein, all interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that (i) interest computed by reference to the ABR at times when the ABR is based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year) and (ii) in the case of interest in respect of Eurocurrency Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies as to which market practice (as reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent) differs from the foregoing, such interest will be calculated in accordance with such market practice, and in each case shall be payable for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). The applicable ABR or Eurocurrency Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent, and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

SECTION 2.15. Inability to Determine Rates
.
If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Eurocurrency Borrowing:
(a)    the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) deposits in Dollars or the applicable Alternative Currency are not being offered to banks in the London interbank eurocurrency market for the applicable amount and Interest Period of such Eurocurrency Loan (the “Impacted Loan”) or (ii) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Eurocurrency Rate for such Interest Period; or
(b)    the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders or the Required Class Lenders under the Revolving Facility that the Eurocurrency Rate for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of making or maintaining their Loans included in such Borrowing for such Interest Period;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Borrower and the applicable Lenders by telephone or facsimile as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the applicable Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) any Interest Election Request that requests the conversion of any





Borrowing to, or continuation of any Borrowing as, a Eurocurrency Borrowing denominated in the applicable currency shall be ineffective and (A) in the case of any Borrowing denominated in Dollars, on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto such Borrowing shall be converted to or continued as an ABR Borrowing and (B) in the case of any Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency, such Borrowing shall be repaid at the end of the then current Interest Period, and (ii) if any Borrowing Request requests a Eurocurrency Borrowing in Dollars, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Administrative Agent has made the determination described in clause (a)(i) of the preceding paragraph, the Administrative Agent, in consultation with the Borrower and the Required Lenders, may establish an alternative interest rate for the Impacted Loans, in which case, such alternative rate of interest shall apply with respect to the Impacted Loans until (1) the Administrative Agent revokes the notice delivered with respect to the Impacted Loans, (2) the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that such alternative interest rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding the Impacted Loans or (3) any Lender reasonably determines that any Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Lender or its applicable Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Loans whose interest is determined by reference to such alternative rate of interest or to determine or charge interest rates based upon such rate or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to do any of the foregoing and provides the Administrative Agent and the Borrower written notice thereof.
SECTION 2.16. Increased Costs
.
(bq)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 by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Eurocurrency Rate) or L/C Issuer; or
(ii)subject any recipient to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Other Taxes or (C) Excluded Taxes) with respect to its loans, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto; or
(iii)impose on any Lender or the L/C Issuer or the London interbank market any other condition affecting this Agreement or Eurocurrency Loans made by such Lender or any Letter of Credit or participation therein; and
the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making, continuing, converting to or maintaining any Loan or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan or to increase the cost to such Lender or L/C Issuer of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender or L/C Issuer hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then the Borrower will pay to such Lender or L/C Issuer, as applicable, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or L/C Issuer, as applicable, for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.
(br)If any Lender or L/C Issuer determines that any Change in Law regarding capital or liquidity requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or L/C Issuer’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s or L/C Issuer’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit or Swingline Loans 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), then from time to time the Borrower shall pay to such Lender or such L/C Issuer, as applicable, 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.
(bs)A certificate of a Lender or an L/C Issuer setting forth the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or L/C Issuer or its holding company, as applicable, as specified in paragraph (a) or (b) of this Section shall be delivered to the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Lender or L/C Issuer, as applicable, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.
(bt)Promptly after any Lender or any L/C Issuer has determined that it will make a request for increased compensation pursuant to this Section 2.16, such Lender or L/C Issuer shall notify the Borrower thereof. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender or L/C Issuer to demand compensation pursuant to this Section shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s or L/C Issuer’s right to demand such compensation; provided, that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender or an L/C Issuer pursuant to this Section for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender or L/C Issuer, as applicable, notifies the Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s or L/C Issuer’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided, further, that if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 180-day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof.





SECTION 2.17. Break Funding Payments
.
In the event of (a) the continuation, conversion, payment or prepayment of any principal of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including (i) as a result of an Event of Default, (ii) in connection with any Auction Prepayment or (iii) the occurrence during an Interest Period of a Revolving Facility Maturity Date), (b) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Eurocurrency Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto or (c) the assignment of any Eurocurrency Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.20, then, in any such event, the Borrower shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event. In the case of a Eurocurrency Loan, such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to be the amount determined by such Lender (it being understood that the deemed amount shall not exceed the actual amount) to be the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest which would have accrued on the principal amount of such Loan had such event not occurred, at the Eurocurrency Rate that would have been applicable to such Loan, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue a Eurocurrency Loan, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest which would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate which such Lender would bid were it to bid, at the commencement of such period, for deposits in dollars of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the Eurocurrency market. A certificate of any Lender setting forth any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section shall be delivered to the Borrower and shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The Borrower shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 days after receipt thereof.
SECTION 2.18 . Taxes
.
(bu)Unless otherwise required by applicable laws, all payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Documents shall be made free and clear of and without deduction for any Taxes; provided, that if any applicable withholding agent shall be required to deduct any Taxes in respect of such payments, then (i) if such Taxes are Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.18) have been made by the applicable withholding agent, the applicable Lender (or, in the case of a payment made to the Administrative Agent for its own account, the Administrative Agent) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction been made, (ii) the applicable withholding agent shall make such deductions and (iii) the applicable withholding agent shall timely pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(bv)In addition, the Borrower shall pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law.
(bw)The Borrower shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender within 10 days after written demand therefor or 5 Business Days before any such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes are due (whichever is later), for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes payable by the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as applicable (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.18), and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf, on behalf of another Agent or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(bx)As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by a Loan Party to a Governmental Authority, such Loan Party shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.
(by)Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax under the law of a jurisdiction in which the Borrower is located, or any treaty to which such jurisdiction is a party, with respect to any payments under this Agreement shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent at any time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent to permit such payments to be made without such withholding Tax or at a reduced rate.
(bz)Any Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter as prescribed by applicable law or upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent), duly executed and properly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 or W-8, as applicable, certifying that it is not subject to U.S. federal backup withholding.
(ca)If the Administrative Agent or a Lender determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by a Loan Party or with respect to which





such Loan Party has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.18, it shall pay over such refund to such Loan Party (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Loan Party under this Section 2.18 with respect to the Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or such Lender (including any Taxes imposed with respect to such refund) as is determined by the Administrative Agent or Lender in good faith and in its sole discretion, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided, that such Loan Party, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender agrees to repay as soon as reasonably practicable the amount paid over to such Loan Party (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. This Section shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes which it deems confidential) to the Loan Parties or any other person. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.18(g), in no event will the Administrative Agent or a Lender be required to pay any amount to any Loan Party pursuant to this Section 2.18(g) the payment of which would place the Administrative Agent or such Lender (as applicable) in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the Administrative Agent or such Lender (as applicable) would have been in if the Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes had never been paid.
(cb)If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this paragraph (h), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
(cc)For all purposes of this Section 2.18, the term “Lender” shall include any Swingline Lender or any L/C Issuer, and the term “applicable law” shall include FATCA.
(cd)Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to deliver to the Loan Parties and to any successor or replacement Administrative Agent any documentation provided by such Lender to the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.18.

SECTION 2.19. Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Set-offs
.
(ce)The Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees or reimbursement of drawings under Letters of Credit, or of amounts payable under Section 2.16, 2.17, or 2.18, or otherwise) free and clear of and without condition or deduction for any defense, recoupment, set-off or counterclaim. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein and except with respect to principal of and interest on Revolving Facility Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency, all payments by the Borrower hereunder shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, at the applicable Administrative Agent’s Office in Dollars and in Same Day Funds not later than 2:00 p.m. on the date specified herein. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by the Borrower hereunder with respect to principal and interest on Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, at the applicable Administrative Agent’s Office in such Alternative Currency and in Same Day Funds not later than the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent on the dates specified herein. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent to the applicable account designated to the Borrower by the Administrative Agent, except payments to be made directly to the applicable L/C Issuer or the Swingline Lender as expressly provided herein and except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.16, 2.17, 2.18, 2.26 and 9.05 shall be made directly to the persons entitled thereto. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Administrative Agent may require that any payments due under this Agreement be made in the continental United States. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be payable for the period of such extension. Any payment required to be made by the Administrative Agent hereunder shall be deemed to have been made by the time required if the Administrative Agent shall, at or before such time,





have taken the necessary steps to make such payment in accordance with the regulations or operating procedures of the clearing or settlement system used by the Administrative Agent to make such payment.
(cf)Unless Section 7.02 applies, if at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Administrative Agent from the Borrower to pay fully all amounts of principal, Unreimbursed L/C Disbursements interest and fees then due from the Borrower hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due from the Borrower hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of interest and fees then due to such parties and (ii) second, towards payment of principal of Loans, and Unreimbursed L/C Disbursements then due from the Borrower hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal and Unreimbursed L/C Disbursements then due to such parties.
(cg)If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any of its Term Loans, Revolving Facility Loans, or participations in Letters of Credit or Swingline Loans resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the aggregate amount of its Term Loans, Revolving Facility Loans, and participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans and accrued interest thereon than the proportion received by any other Lender, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase participations in the Term Loans, Revolving Facility Loans, and participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans of other Lenders to the extent necessary so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by the Lenders ratably in accordance with the aggregate amount of principal of and accrued interest on their respective Term Loans, Revolving Facility Loans, and participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans; provided, that (i) if any such participations are purchased and all or any portion of the payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest, and (ii) the provisions of this paragraph (c) shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (including Sections 2.12(g), 2.24 and 2.25) or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in Letters of Credit to any assignee or participant (other than Parent of any of its subsidiaries) or the application of any Cash Collateral provided for in Section 2.26. The Borrower consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against the Borrower rights of set-off and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.
(ch)Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders or the applicable L/C Issuer hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders or the applicable L/C Issuer, as applicable, the amount due. In such event, if the Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders or the applicable L/C Issuer, as applicable, severally agrees to repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender or L/C Issuer with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Administrative Agent, at the Federal Funds Rate.
(ci)If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.04(c), 2.05(e), 2.07 or 2.19(d), then the Administrative Agent may, in its discretion (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.
(cj)Payments in respect of any Revolving Facility received by the Administrative Agent shall be allocated among the Lenders of each Class of Revolving Facility Commitments ratably, except that, unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, payments received on the Revolving Facility Maturity Date of any Class shall be applied to principal of and interest accrued on Revolving Facility Loans of such Class and to fees accrued in respect of Revolving Facility Commitments of such Class and paid to Lenders thereof ratably.

SECTION 2.20. Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders
.
(ck)Each Lender may make any Credit Event to the Borrower through any Lending Office, provided that the exercise of this option shall not affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay any Obligation in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.16, or requires the Borrower to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.18, then, at the request of the Borrower, such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different Lending Office for funding or booking its 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 reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.16 or 2.18, as applicable, in the future and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender in any material respect. The Borrower hereby agrees to pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.





(cl)If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.16, or if the Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.18, and in each case, such Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different Lending Office in accordance with Section 2.20(a), or if any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to assign and delegate, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in Section 9.04), all its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided, that (i) the Borrower shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent (and, if in respect of any Revolving Facility Commitment or Revolving Facility Loan, the Swingline Lender and the L/C Issuer), which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld, (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, and participations in L/C Obligations and Swingline Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts) and (iii) in the case of any such assignment resulting from a claim for compensation under Section 2.16 or payments required to be made pursuant to Section 2.18, such assignment will result in a reduction in such compensation or payments. Nothing in this Section 2.20 shall be deemed to prejudice any rights that the Borrower may have against any Lender that is a Defaulting Lender. No action by or consent of the removed Lender shall be necessary in connection with such assignment, which shall be immediately and automatically effective upon payment of such purchase price. In connection with any such assignment the Borrower, Administrative Agent and the replacement Lender shall otherwise comply with Section 9.04.
(cm)If any Lender (such Lender, a “Non-Consenting Lender”) has failed to consent to a proposed amendment, waiver, discharge or termination which pursuant to the terms of Section 9.08 requires the consent of all of the Lenders affected or of all Lenders and with respect to which the Required Lenders shall have granted their consent, then the Borrower shall have the right (unless such Non-Consenting Lender grants such consent) at its sole expense (including with respect to the processing and recordation fee referred to in Section 9.04(b)(ii)(B)) to replace such Non-Consenting Lender by deeming such Non-Consenting Lender to have assigned its Loans and Commitments hereunder to one or more assignees reasonably acceptable to (i) the Administrative Agent (unless, in the case of an assignment of Term Loans, such assignee is a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund) and (ii) if in respect of any Revolving Facility Commitment or Revolving Facility Loan, the Swingline Lender and the L/C Issuer; provided, that (without duplication): such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans, and funded participations in L/C Obligations and Swingline Loans, accrued interest thereon, accrued fees and all other amounts payable to it hereunder including the amount equal to any premium payable pursuant to Section 2.12(a) if such replacement of a Non-Consenting Lender is in connection with a Repricing Transaction as if such assignment were a prepayment, from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of all other amounts (including any such premium)). No action by or consent of the Non-Consenting Lender shall be necessary in connection with such assignment, which shall be immediately and automatically effective upon payment of such purchase price. In connection with any such assignment the Borrower, Administrative Agent and the replacement Lender shall otherwise comply with Section 9.04.

SECTION 2.21. Illegality
.
If any Lender reasonably determines that any change in law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted after the Closing Date that it is unlawful, for any Lender or its applicable Lending Office to perform any of its obligations hereunder or make, maintain or fund any Eurocurrency Loans or charge interest with respect to any credit extension at the Eurocurrency Rate in any currency, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to the Borrower through the Administrative Agent, any obligations of such Lender to make or continue Eurocurrency Loans in such currency, to charge interest at the Eurocurrency Rate or to convert ABR Borrowings to Eurocurrency Borrowings shall be suspended until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist. Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower shall upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), either (i) in the case of Loans denominated in Dollars if the affected Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such Loans as Eurocurrency Loans until the last day of such Interest Period, convert all Eurocurrency Loans of such Lender to ABR Loans on the last day of such Interest Period (or, otherwise, immediately convert such Eurocurrency Loans to ABR Loans) or (ii) prepay such Eurocurrency Loans. Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted.
SECTION 2.22. Incremental Commitments
.
(a)The Borrower may by written notice to the Administrative Agent elect to seek (w) commitments (“Additional Revolving Commitments”) to increase the Revolving Facility Commitments of any Class, (x) commitments (“Additional Term Loan Commitments”) to increase the aggregate principal amount of any existing Class of Term Loans, (y) commitments

(ii)any such increase or any new Class shall be in an aggregate amount of $25,000,000 or any whole multiple of $5,000,000 in excess thereof; provided that such amount may be less than $25,000,000 if such amount represents all remaining availability under the limit set forth in the preceding clause (i);
(iii)no existing Lender shall be required to provide any Incremental Commitments;
(iv)except as to amortization and final maturity date (which shall, subject to clauses (vii), (viii) and (x) of this proviso, be determined by the Borrower and the Incremental Term Lenders in their sole discretion), the Other Term A Loans shall have (x) the same terms as the Term A Loans (including with respect to pricing) or (y) terms that are less favorable to the Incremental Term Lenders providing such Other Term A Loans than the terms of the Term A Loans in the reasonable determination of the Administrative Agent, except to the extent such provisions apply only after the Term A Facility Maturity Date or such other provisions apply equally for the benefit of the Term A Lenders (including with respect to pricing) and, to the extent applicable (other than pricing and amortization), the Revolving Facility Lenders;
(v)except as to pricing, amortization and final maturity date (which shall, subject to clauses (vii), (viii), (x) and (xii) of this proviso, be determined by the Borrower and the Incremental Term Lenders in their sole discretion), the Other Term B Loans shall have (x) the same terms as the Term B Loans or (y) such other terms as shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent; provided that (a) the covenants and other terms applicable to Other Term B Loans shall not be materially more favorable (when taken as a whole) to the Incremental Term Lenders providing the Other Term B Loans than those applicable to any Facility then outstanding (except to the extent such terms apply only after the Latest Maturity Date or such covenants or other terms apply equally for the benefit of the other Lenders) and (b) at the sole discretion of the Borrower and the Incremental Term Lenders providing the Other Term B Loans, any prepayment premium for the existing Term B Loans may be increased or the period applicable thereto may be extended to be the same as Other Term B Loans;
(vi)as of each date of borrowing under any Additional Term Loan Commitments, Other Term A Loan Commitments or Other Term B Loan Commitments or effectiveness of Additional Revolving Commitments, (A) each of the conditions set forth in Section 4.01 shall be satisfied and (B) Parent shall be in Pro Forma Compliance (assuming all Revolving Facility Commitments are fully drawn and without netting the cash proceeds of any Incremental Commitments being funded on such date in calculating the Total Secured Net Leverage Ratio);
(vii)the final maturity date of any Other Term A Loan shall be no earlier than the Term A Facility Maturity Date, and the final maturity date of any Other Term B Loan shall be no earlier than the Term B Facility Maturity Date;
(viii)the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of any Other Term A Loan shall not be shorter than the remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the existing Term A Loans, and the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of any Other Term B Loans shall not be shorter than the remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the existing Term B Loans;
(ix)(A) the security interest and guaranties benefiting the Incremental Term Loans will rank pari passu in right of payment and security with the existing Facilities, (B) no Person shall guarantee the obligations with respect to any Incremental Term Loans unless such Person is a Loan Party and (C) no Incremental Term Loans will be secured by any property that does not constitute Collateral under the existing Facilities;
(x)the Other Term A Loans shall share on a pro rata basis (or if agreed by the Incremental Term Lenders providing such Other Term A Loans, on a less than pro rata basis) in any mandatory prepayment or voluntary prepayment of the Term A Loans hereunder, and the Other Term B Loans shall share on a pro rata basis (or if agreed by the Incremental Term Lenders providing such Other Term B Loans, on a less than pro rata basis) in any mandatory prepayment or voluntary prepayment of the Term B Loans hereunder;
(xi)the Additional Revolving Commitments shall have the same terms as the Revolving Facility Commitments that is being increased (except that the Lenders providing Additional Revolving Commitments may receive customary upfront fees in connection therewith), and the Additional Term Loans shall have the same terms as the Term Loans of the Class that is being increased; and
(xii)in the event that the Applicable Margin for any Other Term B Loans is greater than the Applicable Margin for the existing Term B Loans by more than 50 basis points, then the Applicable Margin for the existing Term B Loans shall be increased to the extent necessary so that the Applicable Margin (at each analogous point in the Pricing Grid, if applicable) for the Other Term B Loans is 50 basis points higher than the Applicable Margin for the existing Term B Loans; provided that in determining the Applicable Margin applicable to the existing Term B Loans and Other Term B Loans, (x) original issue discount or upfront or similar fees (collectively, “OID”) payable by Parent or any of its subsidiaries to the Lenders of the existing Term B Loans or the Other Term B Loans, in the primary syndication thereof shall be included (with OID being equated to interest based on an assumed four-year life to maturity), (y) customary arrangement or commitment fees payable to arrangers (or their respective affiliates) shall be excluded; and (z) if the ABR or Eurocurrency Rate “floor” for the Other Term B Loans is greater than the ABR or Eurocurrency Rate “floor,” respectively, for the existing Term B Loans the difference between such floor for the Other Term B Loans and the existing Term B Loans shall be equated to an increase in the Applicable





Margin for purposes of this clause (xii) (but shall result in an increase in the “floor” (not the Applicable Margin) of the existing Term B Loan if this provision is triggered).
(b)Each such notice shall specify (x) the date (each, an “Incremental Commitments Effective Date”) on which the Borrower proposes that the Incremental Commitments shall be effective, which shall be a Business Day and (y) the identity of the Persons (each of which shall be an Eligible Person and the consent of the Persons specified in Section 9.04(b)(i) shall have been received with respect thereto to the extent as would be required if the Lender of the Incremental Commitment were an assignee) whom the Borrower proposes would provide the Incremental Commitments and the portion of the Incremental Commitment to be provided by each such Person.

(c)On each Incremental Commitments Effective Date, each Incremental Term Lender shall make an Incremental Term Loan of the applicable Class to the Borrower in a principal amount equal to its Incremental Term Loan Commitment. The Borrower shall prepay any Revolving Facility Loans outstanding on the Incremental Commitments Effective Date with respect to any Additional Revolving Commitment (and pay any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 2.17) to the extent necessary to keep the outstanding Revolving Facility Loans pro rata across all Classes of Revolving Facility Commitments arising from any nonratable increase in the Revolving Facility Commitments. If there is a new borrowing of Revolving Facility Loans on such Incremental Commitments Effective Date, the Revolving Facility Lenders after giving effect to such Additional Revolving Commitments shall make such Revolving Facility Loans in accordance with Section 2.01(c).
(d)The Incremental Commitments shall be documented by an Additional Credit Extension Amendment executed by the Persons providing the Incremental Commitments (and the other Persons specified in the definition of Additional Credit Extension Amendment but no other existing Lender), and the Additional Credit Extension Amendment may provide for such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.22.
(e)This Section 2.22 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.19 or Section 9.08 to the contrary.

SECTION 2.23. Extended Term Loans and Extended Revolving Commitments
.
(a)The Borrower may at any time and from time to time request that all or a portion of the Term Loans of any Class (the Loans of such applicable Class, the “Existing Term Loans”) be converted into a new Class of Term Loans (the Loans of such applicable Class, the “Extended Term Loans”) in accordance with this Section 2.23(a). In order to establish any Extended Term Loans, the Borrower shall provide a notice to the Administrative Agent (a “Term Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Term Loans to be established, which shall be identical to those applicable to the Existing Term Loans from which such Extended Term Loans are to be converted except that:
(i)the maturity date of the Extended Term Loans shall be later than the maturity date of the Existing Term Loans, and the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of such Extended Term Loans shall be longer than the then remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of the Existing Term Loans;
(ii)all or any of the scheduled amortization payments of principal of the Extended Term Loans may be delayed to later dates than the scheduled amortization payments of principal of the Existing Term Loans;
(iii)(A) the interest rates (including through fixed interest rates), interest margins, rate floors, upfront fees, funding discounts, OID and premiums with respect to the Extended Term Loans may be different than those for the Existing Term Loans and/or (B) additional fees and/or premiums may be payable to the Extending Lenders providing such Extended Term Loans in addition to or in lieu of any of the items contemplated by the preceding clause (A);
(iv)the Extended Term Loans may have optional prepayment terms (including call protection and prepayment premiums) and mandatory prepayment terms as may be agreed between the Borrower and the Extending Lenders so long as such Extended Term Loans do not participate on a greater than pro rata basis in any such mandatory prepayments as compared to existing Term Lenders of the applicable Class; and
(v)the Borrower and its Subsidiaries may be subject to covenants and other terms for the benefit of the Extending Lenders that apply only after the Latest Maturity Date (before giving effect to the Extended Term Loans).
(b)The Borrower may at any time and from time to time request that all or a portion of the Revolving Facility Commitments of any Class (the Commitments of such applicable Class, the “Existing Revolving Commitments”) be converted into a new Class of Revolving Facility Commitments (the Commitments of such applicable Class, the “Extended Revolving Commitments”) in accordance with this Section 2.23(b). In order to establish any Extended Revolving Commitments, the Borrower shall provide a notice to the Administrative Agent (a “Revolving Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Revolving Commitments to be established, which shall be identical to those applicable to the Existing Revolving Commitments from which such Extended Revolving Commitments are to be converted except that:
(i)the maturity date of the Extended Revolving Commitments shall be later than the maturity date of the Existing Revolving Commitments;





(ii)(A) the interest rates (including through fixed interest rates), interest margins, rate floors, upfront fees, undrawn revolving commitment fees, funding discounts, OID and premiums with respect to the Extended Revolving Commitments may be different than those for the Existing Revolving Commitments and/or (B) additional fees and/or premiums may be payable to the Extending Lenders in addition to or in lieu of any of the items contemplated by the preceding subclause (A);
(iii)the Borrower and its Subsidiaries may be subject to covenants and other terms for the benefit of the Extending Lenders that apply only after the Latest Revolving Facility Maturity Date (before giving effect to the Extended Revolving Commitments).
(c)Each Extension Request shall specify the date (the “Extension Effective Date”) on which the Borrower proposes that the conversion of an Existing Class into an Extended Class shall be effective, which shall be a Business Day. Each Lender of an Existing Class that is requested to be extended shall be offered the opportunity to convert its Existing Class into the Extended Class on the same basis as each other Lender of such Existing Class. Any Lender (to the extent applicable, an “Extending Lender”) wishing to have all or a portion of its Existing Class subject to such Extension Request converted into an Extended Class shall notify the Administrative Agent (an “Extension Election”) on or prior to the date specified in such Extension Request of the amount of its Existing Class subject to such Extension Request that it has elected to convert into an Extended Class; provided that (x) the Borrower may specify in its Extension Request that a Lender may convert all (but not less than all) of its Existing Class into the Extended Class, in which event a partial conversion by a Lender will not be permitted and (y) no existing Lender shall be required to be an Extending Lender. In the event that the aggregate portion of the Existing Class subject to Extension Elections exceeds the amount of the Extended Class requested pursuant to the Extension Request, the portion of the Existing Class converted shall be allocated on a pro rata basis based on the amount of the Existing Class included in each such Extension Election. Notwithstanding the conversion of any Existing Revolving Commitment into an Extended Revolving Commitment, such Extended Revolving Commitment shall be treated identically with all Existing Revolving Commitments for purposes of the obligations of a Revolving Facility Lender in respect of Letters of Credit under Section 2.05, except that the applicable Additional Credit Extension Amendment may provide that the maturity date for the Letters of Credit may be extended and the related obligations to issue Letters of Credit may be continued so long as each applicable L/C Issuer has consented to such extensions in its sole discretion (it being understood that no consent of any other Lender shall be required in connection with any such extension).
(d)An Extended Class shall be established pursuant to an Additional Credit Extension Amendment executed by the Extending Lenders (and the other Persons specified in the definition of “Additional Credit Extension Amendment” but no other existing Lender). No Additional Credit Extension Amendment shall provide for any Class of (x) Extended Term Loans in an aggregate principal amount that is less than $25,000,000 or (y) Extended Revolving Commitments in an aggregate principal amount that is less than $5,000,000. In addition to any terms and changes required or permitted by Section 2.23(a), the Additional Credit Extension Amendment shall amend the scheduled amortization payments pursuant to Section 2.11 with respect to the Existing Term Loans from which the Extended Term Loans were converted to reduce each scheduled principal repayment amounts for the Existing Term Loans in the same proportion as the amount of Existing Term Loans to be converted pursuant to such Additional Credit Extension Amendment.
(e)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, on the Extension Effective Date, (i) the principal amount of each Existing Term Loan shall be deemed reduced by an amount equal to the principal amount converted into an Extended Term Loan, (ii) the amount of each Existing Revolving Commitment shall be deemed reduced by an amount equal to the amount converted into an Extended Revolving Commitment and (iii) if, on any Extension Effective Date with respect to any Revolving Facility Commitments, any Loans of any Extending Lender are outstanding under the applicable Existing Revolving Commitments, such Loans (and any related participations) shall be deemed to be converted into Loans (and related participations) made pursuant to the Extended Revolving Commitments in the same proportion as such Extending Lender’s Existing Revolving Commitments are converted to Extended Revolving Commitments.
(f)This Section 2.23 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.19 or Section 9.08 to the contrary. Each Extended Class shall be documented by an Additional Credit Extension Amendment executed by the Extending Lenders providing such Extended Class (and the other persons specified in the definition of “Additional Credit Extension Amendment” but no other existing Lender), and the Additional Credit Extension Amendment may provide for such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.23.

SECTION 2.24. Refinancing Term Loans
.
(a)The Borrower may at any time and from time to time, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, request the establishment of one or more additional Classes of Term Loans under this Agreement or an increase to an existing Class of Term Loans under this Agreement (“Refinancing Term Loans”); provided that:
(i)the proceeds of such Refinancing Term Loans shall be used, concurrently or substantially concurrently with the incurrence thereof, solely to refinance all or any portion of any outstanding Term Loans;





(ii)each Class of Refinancing Term Loans shall be in an aggregate amount of not less than $25,000,000 (or such other amount necessary to repay any Class of outstanding Term Loans in full);
(iii)such Refinancing Term Loans shall be in an aggregate principal amount not greater than the aggregate principal amount outstanding of Term Loans to be refinanced plus any accrued interest, premiums, fees, costs and expenses related thereto (including any OID or upfront fees);
(iv)the final maturity date of such Refinancing Term Loans shall be later than the maturity date of the Term Loans being refinanced, and the Weighted Average Life to Maturity of such Refinancing Term Loans shall be longer than the then remaining Weighted Average Life to Maturity of each Class of Term Loans being refinanced;
(v)(A) the pricing, rate floors, discounts, fees and optional and mandatory prepayment provisions applicable to such Refinancing Term Loans shall be as agreed between the Borrower and the Refinancing Term Lenders so long as, in the case of any mandatory prepayment provisions, such Refinancing Term Lenders do not participate on a greater than pro rata basis in any such prepayments as compared to Term Lenders holding Term Loans to be refinanced and (B) the covenants and other terms applicable to such Refinancing Term Loans (excluding those terms described in the immediately preceding clause (A)), which shall be as agreed between the Borrower and the lenders providing such Refinancing Term Loans, shall not be materially more favorable (when taken as a whole) to the Refinancing Term Lenders than those applicable to any Term Loans then outstanding under this Agreement (as determined by the Borrower in good faith), except to the extent such covenants and other terms apply solely to any period after the Latest Maturity Date or such covenants or other terms apply equally for the benefit of the other Lenders;
(vi)no existing Lender shall be required to provide any Refinancing Term Loans;
(vii)no Refinancing Term Loans shall be guaranteed by any Person that is not a Loan Party or secured by any asset that is not Collateral; and
(viii)the Refinancing Term Loans shall rank pari passu in right of payment and of security with the existing Loans, on terms and pursuant to documentation applicable to the Term Loans being refinanced.
(b)Each such notice shall specify (x) the date (each, a “Refinancing Term Effective Date”) on which the Borrower proposes that the Refinancing Term Loans be made, which shall be a Business Day and (y) the identity of the Persons (each of which shall be an Eligible Person and the consent of the Persons specified in Section 9.04(b)(i) shall have been received with respect thereto to the extent as would be required if the Lender of the Refinancing Term Loan were an assignee) whom the Borrower proposes would provide the Refinancing Term Loans and the portion of the Refinancing Term Loans to be provided by each such Person. On each Refinancing Term Effective Date, each Person with a commitment for a Refinancing Term Loan (each such Person, a “Refinancing Term Lender”) shall make a Refinancing Term Loan to the Borrower in a principal amount equal to such Person’s commitment therefor.
(c)This Section 2.24 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.19 or Section 9.08 to the contrary. The Refinancing Term Loans shall be documented by an Additional Credit Extension Amendment executed by the Persons providing the Refinancing Term Loans (and the other Persons specified in the definition of “Additional Credit Extension Amendment” but no other existing Lender), and the Additional Credit Extension Amendment may provide for such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.24.

SECTION 2.25. Replacement Revolving Commitments
.
(a)The Borrower may at any time and from time to time, by written notice to the Administrative Agent, request the establishment of one or more additional Classes of Revolving Facility Commitments (“Replacement Revolving Commitments”) to replace all or a portion of any existing Classes of Revolving Facility Commitments under this Agreement (“Replaced Revolving Commitments”); provided that:
(i)substantially concurrently with the effectiveness of the Replacement Revolving Commitments, all or an equivalent portion of the Revolving Facility Commitments in effect immediately prior to such effectiveness shall be terminated, and all or an equivalent portion of the Revolving Facility Loans then outstanding, together with all interest thereon, and all other amounts accrued for the benefit of the Revolving Facility Lenders, shall be repaid or paid (it being understood, however, that any Letters of Credit issued and outstanding under the Replaced Revolving Commitments shall be deemed to have been issued under the Replacement Revolving Commitments if the amount of such Letters of Credit would exceed the remaining amount of commitments under the Replaced Revolving Commitments after giving effect to the reduction contemplated hereby);
(ii)such Replacement Revolving Commitments shall be in an aggregate amount not greater than the aggregate amount of Replaced Revolving Commitments to be replaced plus any accrued interest, premiums, fees, costs and expenses related thereto (including any OID or upfront fees);
(iii)the final maturity date of such Replacement Revolving Commitments shall be later than the maturity date of the Replaced Revolving Commitments, and the Replacement Revolving Commitments shall not be subject to any amortization;





(iv)the Letter of Credit Sublimit under such Replacement Revolving Commitments shall be as agreed between the Borrower, the Lenders providing such Replacement Revolving Commitments, the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer thereunder (or any replacement L/C Issuer);
(v)(A) the pricing, rate floors, discounts, fees and prepayment provisions applicable to such Replacement Revolving Commitments shall be as agreed between the Borrower and the Replacement Revolving Lenders so long as, in the case of any mandatory or optional prepayment provisions, such Replacement Revolving Lenders do not participate on a greater than pro rata basis in any such prepayments as compared to Replaced Revolving Commitments and (B) the covenants and other terms applicable to such Replacement Revolving Commitments (excluding those terms described in the immediately preceding clause (A)), which shall be as agreed between the Borrower and the lenders providing such Replacement Revolving Commitments, shall not be materially more favorable (when taken as a whole) to the lenders providing the Replacement Revolving Commitments than those applicable to the Replaced Revolving Commitments (as determined by the Borrower in good faith), except to the extent such covenants and other terms apply solely to any period after the Latest Revolving Facility Maturity Date or such covenants or other terms apply equally for the benefit of the other Lenders;
(vi)no existing Lender shall be required to provide any Replacement Revolving Commitments; and
(vii)no Replacement Revolving Commitments shall be guaranteed by any Person that is not a Loan Party or secured by any asset that is not Collateral; and
(viii)the Replacement Revolving Commitments shall rank pari passu in right of payment and of security with the existing Revolving Facility Commitments.
(b)Each such notice shall specify (x) the date on which the Borrower proposes that the Replacement Revolving Commitments become effective, which shall be a Business Day and (y) the identity of the Persons (each of which shall be an Eligible Person and the consent of the Persons specified in Section 9.04(b)(i) shall have been received with respect thereto to the extent as would be required if the Lender of the Replacement Revolving Commitments were an assignee) whom the Borrower proposes would provide the Replacement Revolving Commitments (each such person, a “Replacement Revolving Lender”) and the portion of the Replacement Revolving Commitments to be provided by each such Person.
(c)This Section 2.25 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.19 or Section 9.08 to the contrary. The Replacement Revolving Commitments shall be documented by an Additional Credit Extension Amendment executed by the Persons providing the Replacement Revolving Commitments (and the other Persons specified in the definition of “Additional Credit Extension Amendment” but no other existing Lender), and the Additional Credit Extension Amendment may provide for such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or appropriate, in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to effect the provisions of this Section 2.25.

SECTION 2.26. Cash Collateral
.
(cn)If (i) the L/C Issuer has honored any full or partial drawing request under any Letter of Credit and such drawing has resulted in an Unreimbursed L/C Disbursement, (ii) as of the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, any L/C Obligation for any reason remains outstanding, (iii) the Borrower shall be required to provide Cash Collateral pursuant to Section 7.01, or (iv) there shall exist a Defaulting Lender, the Borrower shall immediately (in the case of clause (iii) above), or within one Business Day following any request by the Administrative Agent or the L/C Issuer (in all other cases), provide Cash Collateral in an amount not less than the applicable Minimum Collateral Amount (determined in the case of Cash Collateral provided pursuant to clause (iv) above, after giving effect to Section 2.27 (a)(iv) and any Cash Collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender). If at any time the Administrative Agent determines that any funds held as Cash Collateral are subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Administrative Agent or that the total amount of such funds is less than the aggregate Outstanding Amount of all L/C Obligations, the Borrower will, forthwith upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay to the Administrative Agent, as additional funds to be deposited as Cash Collateral, an amount equal to the excess of (x) such aggregate Outstanding Amount over (y) the total amount of funds, if any, then held as Cash Collateral that the Administrative Agent determines to be free and clear of any such right and claim. Upon the drawing of any Letter of Credit for which funds are on deposit as Cash Collateral, such funds shall be applied, to the extent permitted under applicable Laws, to reimburse the L/C Issuer.
(co)The Borrower, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grants to (and subjects to the control of) the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuer and the Lenders, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such cash, deposit accounts and all balances therein, and all other property so provided as collateral pursuant hereto, and in all proceeds of the foregoing, all as security for the obligations to which such Cash Collateral may be applied pursuant to Section 2.26(c). If at any time the Administrative Agent determines that Cash Collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Administrative Agent or the L/C Issuer as herein provided, or that the total amount of such Cash Collateral is less than the Minimum Collateral Amount, the Borrower will, promptly upon demand by the Administrative Agent, pay or provide to the Administrative Agent additional Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency. All Cash Collateral (other than credit support not constituting funds subject to deposit) shall be maintained in blocked, non-interest bearing deposit accounts at Bank of America. The





Borrower shall pay on demand therefor from time to time all customary account opening, activity and other administrative fees and charges in connection with the maintenance and disbursement of Cash Collateral.
(cp)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Cash Collateral provided under any of this Section 2.26 or Section 2.27 or 7.02 in respect of Letters of Credit or Swingline Loans shall be held and applied to the satisfaction of the specific L/C Obligations, Swingline Loans, obligations to fund participations therein (including, as to Cash Collateral provided by a Defaulting Lender, any interest accrued on such obligation) and other obligations for which the Cash Collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may be provided for herein.
(cq)Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce Fronting Exposure or to secure other obligations shall be released promptly following (i) the elimination of the applicable Fronting Exposure or other obligations giving rise thereto (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Lender (or, as appropriate, its assignee following compliance with Section 9.04(b)(ii)(B)) or (ii) the determination by the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer that there exists excess Cash Collateral; provided, however, the Person providing Cash Collateral and the L/C Issuer may agree that Cash Collateral shall not be released but instead held to support future anticipated Fronting Exposure or other obligations.

SECTION 2.27. 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 penultimate sentence of Section 9.08(b) and in the definition of “Required Lenders”.
(ii)    Defaulting Lender Waterfall. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VII or otherwise) or received by the Administrative Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 9.06 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 such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; second, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the L/C Issuer or Swingline Lender hereunder; third, to Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuer’s Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender in accordance with Section 2.26; fourth, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; fifth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a deposit account and released pro rata in order to (x) satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement and (y) Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuer’s future Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender with respect to future Letters of Credit to be issued under this Agreement, in accordance with Section 2.26; sixth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders, the L/C Issuer or Swingline Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender, the L/C Issuer or the Swingline Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, so long as no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and eighth, to such 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 Unreimbursed L/C Disbursements in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Loans were made or the related Letters of Credit were issued at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 4.01 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and L/C Disbursement Participations owed to, all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or L/C Obligations owed to, such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Loans and funded and unfunded participations in L/C Obligations and Swingline Loans are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Commitments hereunder without giving effect to Section 2.27(a)(iv). 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 2.27(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(iii)    Certain Fees.





(A)    No Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive any fee payable under Section 2.13(a) for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Borrower shall not be required to pay any such fee that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender for such period).
(B)    Each Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive L/C Participation Fees for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender only to the extent allocable to its Revolving Facility Percentage of the stated amount of Letters of Credit for which it has provided Cash Collateral pursuant to Section 2.26.
(C)    With respect to any Commitment Fee or L/C Participation Fee not required to be paid to any Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (A) or (B) above, the Borrower shall (x) pay to each Non-Defaulting Lender that portion of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s participation in L/C Obligations or Swingline Loans that has been reallocated to such Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (iv) below, (y) pay to the L/C Issuer and Swingline Lender, as applicable, the amount of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender to the extent allocable to such L/C Issuer’s or Swingline Lender’s Fronting Exposure to such Defaulting Lender, and (z) not be required to pay the remaining amount of any such fee.
(iv)    Reallocation of Revolving Facility Percentages to Reduce Fronting Exposure. All or any part of such Defaulting Lender’s participation in L/C Obligations and Swingline Loans shall be reallocated among the Non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Facility Percentages (calculated without regard to such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment) but only to the extent that such reallocation does not cause the aggregate Revolving Facility Credit Exposure of any Non-Defaulting Lender to exceed such Non-Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Facility Commitment. Subject to Section 9.23, 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.
(v)    Cash Collateral, Repayment of Swingline Loans. If the reallocation described in clause (a)(iv) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrower shall, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to it hereunder or under applicable Law, (x) first, prepay Swingline Loans in an amount equal to the Swingline Lender’s Fronting Exposure and (y) second, Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuer’s Fronting Exposure in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 2.26.
(b)    Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, Swingline Lender and the L/C Issuer agree in writing that a Lender is no longer 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 at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Revolving Facility Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their Revolving Facility Percentages (without giving effect to Section 2.27(a)(iv)), whereupon such 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 Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; 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 2.28. Alternate Rate of Interest
.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement or any other Loan Documents, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Borrower or Required Lenders notify the Administrative Agent (with, in the case of the Required Lenders, a copy to the Borrower) that the Borrower or Required Lenders (as applicable) have determined, that:
(cr)adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining Eurocurrency Rate for any requested Interest Period, including, without limitation, because the LIBO Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary; or
(cs) the administrator of the LIBO Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Administrative Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which LIBOR or the LIBO Screen Rate shall no longer be made available, or used for determining the interest rate of loans (such specific date, the “Scheduled Unavailability Date”), or
(ct)syndicated loans currently being executed, or that include language similar to that contained in this Section, are being executed or amended (as applicable) to incorporate or adopt a new benchmark interest rate to replace LIBOR,





then, reasonably promptly after such determination by the Administrative Agent or receipt by the Administrative Agent of such notice, as applicable, the Administrative Agent, the Borrower and Parent may amend this Agreement to replace LIBOR with an alternate benchmark rate (including any mathematical or other adjustments to the benchmark (if any) incorporated therein), giving due consideration to any evolving or then existing convention for similar U.S. dollar denominated syndicated credit facilities for such alternative benchmarks (any such proposed rate, a “LIBOR Successor Rate”), together with any proposed LIBOR Successor Rate Conforming Changes and any such amendment shall become effective at 5:00 p.m. (New York time) on the fifth Business Day after the Administrative Agent shall have posted such proposed amendment to all Lenders and the Borrower unless, prior to such time, Lenders comprising the Required Lenders have delivered to the Administrative Agent written notice that such Required Lenders do not accept such amendment.
If no LIBOR Successor Rate has been determined and the circumstances under clause (a) above exist or the Scheduled Unavailability Date has occurred (as applicable), the Administrative Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender.  Thereafter, (x) the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain Eurocurrency Rate Loans shall be suspended (to the extent of the affected Eurocurrency Loans or Interest Periods), and (y) the Eurocurrency Rate component shall no longer be utilized in determining the ABR. Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower may revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurocurrency Loans (to the extent of the affected Eurocurrency Loans or Interest Periods) or, failing that, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of ABR Loans (subject to the foregoing clause (y)) in the amount specified therein.
Notwithstanding anything else herein, any definition of “LIBOR Successor Rate” shall provide that in no event shall such LIBOR Successor Rate be less than zero for purposes of this Agreement.
