Item 1.01    Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On December 21, 2018, Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (“OSG”) announced that, together with its subsidiary OSG Bulk Ships, Inc. (“OBS”) and certain subsidiaries of OBS (such subsidiaries, collectively with OBS, the “Borrowers”), it completed a refinancing transaction (the “Term Loan Refinancing”) for the purposes of (i) refinancing and replacing all of the term loans made to OBS pursuant to a Term Loan Credit Agreement dated as of August 5, 2014, as amended, among OSG, OBS and the other guarantors party thereto and Jefferies Finance LLC, as administrative agent, collateral agent and mortgage trustee (the “2014 OBS Term Loan”), and (ii) funding certain costs and expenses associated with the Term Loan Refinancing.

In connection with the Term Loan Refinancing, the Borrowers entered into a senior secured term loan facility (the “Term Loan Credit Agreement”) with The Prudential Insurance Company of America (“Prudential”) and other lenders; PGIM, Inc. (“PGIM”), as arranger, administrative agent, collateral agent and mortgage trustee; Prudential and Ally Bank, as co-syndication agents; and AB Private Credit Investors Corporation, as documentation agent. The Term Loan Credit Agreement provides for, among other things, one or more term loans to be made available in an aggregate principal amount up to $325,000,000, or such other greater amount as permitted under such term loan facility, as amended, modified or supplemented.
 
Loans under the Term Loan Credit Agreement bear interest at a rate equal to the prevailing 30-Day LIBOR (or the Alternate Base Rate, as defined in the Term Loan Credit Agreement, if LIBOR is discontinued) plus a margin of 500 basis points.

The Borrowers’ obligations under the Term Loan Credit Agreement (the “Guaranteed Obligations”) are guaranteed by OSG, and OSG has pledged the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of OBS as security for the Guaranteed Obligations pursuant to a pledge agreement between OSG and PGIM, as collateral agent. The Borrowers’ obligations are also secured by security interests in all of the Borrowers’ assets and by mortgages covering two tankers, eight tugs and seven barges. The Borrowers and OSG are individually and collectively referred to in this Current Report on Form 8-K as a “Loan Party” and the “Loan Parties,” as applicable.

Upon 30 days’ prior written notice to the Lenders, the Borrowers may prepay the outstanding indebtedness in full (or in part) at par plus accrued interest and an additional sum as a premium that varies based on the date of the prepayment. Any amount prepaid under the Term Loan Credit Agreement may not be reborrowed. Additionally, certain events, such as the sale of vessels serving as collateral under the Term Loan Refinancing, will require a mandatory partial or full repayment. No prepayment premium shall apply to any such mandatory prepayment.

The Term Loan Credit Agreement contains customary representations and warranties and customary affirmative and negative covenants applicable to the Loan Parties and their respective subsidiaries, including, among other things, restrictions on indebtedness, liens, investments, mergers, dispositions, prepayment of other indebtedness and dividends and other distributions.

Events of default under the Term Loan Credit Agreement include: (i) the failure by the Borrowers to timely make payments due under the Term Loan Credit Agreement; (ii) material misrepresentations or misstatements in any representation or warranty by any Loan Party when made; (iii) failure by any Loan Party to comply with the covenants under the Term Loan Credit Agreement and other related agreements; (iv) certain payment defaults under other indebtedness of OSG or its subsidiaries; (v) insolvency or bankruptcy-related events with respect to OSG or any of its material subsidiaries; (vi) certain undischarged judgments against OSG or certain of its subsidiaries; (vii) certain ERISA-related events reasonably expected to have a material adverse effect on OSG and its subsidiaries taken as a whole; (viii) certain security interests or liens under the loan documents ceasing to be, or being asserted by OSG or its restricted subsidiaries not to be, in full force and effect; (ix) the occurrence of a Change in Control (as defined in the Term Loan Credit Agreement) of OSG or OBS; and (x) any loan document or material provision thereof ceasing to be, or any proceeding being instituted asserting that such loan document or material provision is not, in full force and effect. If one or more events of default occurs and continues beyond any applicable cure period, the administrative agent may, with the consent of the Lenders holding a majority of the loans and commitments under the facilities, or will, at the request of such Lenders, terminate the commitments of the Lenders to make further loans and declare all of the obligations of the Loan Parties under the Term Loan Credit Agreement to be immediately due and payable.

In connection with the Term Loan Refinancing, OSG and its affiliates also entered into an amendment to a Credit Agreement dated as of August 5, 2014, as amended (the “2014 ABL Credit Agreement”), among OSG, OBS as administrative borrower, certain subsidiaries of OBS as co-borrowers, other guarantors, lenders, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association (“Wells Fargo”), as administrative agent. Pursuant to such amendment (the “ABL Credit Agreement Amendment”), the 2014 ABL Credit Agreement was amended to permit the transactions contemplated under the Term Loan Credit Agreement. The ABL Credit Agreement Amendment reduced the maximum credit line under the 2014 ABL Credit Agreement from $75 million to $30 million and was extended through August 2, 2019. The ABL Credit Agreement Amendment also reduced the number of vessels that serve as collateral for loans under the 2014 ABL Credit Agreement.

Each Lender is irrevocably authorized by the Borrowers to endorse its Note accordingly and to attach and to make a part of such Note such schedules as and when required. Entries made in the accounts maintained by the Paying Agent and by each Lender on the schedules to its Note shall be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations recorded therein; provided that the failure of the Paying Agent to maintain such accounts or the Lenders to make such notations or any error therein shall not in any manner affect the obligations of the Borrowers to pay, and perform, the Obligations in accordance with the Term Loan Documents. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by any Lender and those of the Paying Agent in respect of such entries, the accounts and records of the Paying Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error. The Paying Agent shall maintain accounts in which it will record (i) the amount of all principal and interest payments due and payable and to become due and payable from the Borrowers to each Lender hereunder, and (ii) the amount of any sums received by the Paying Agent hereunder for the account of the Lenders and each Lender’s share thereof.

0.50% of the amount allocated to such Lender if such Lender’s original commitment was less than $15,000,000;

0.75% of the amount allocated to such Lender if such Lender’s original commitment was at least $15,000,000 but less than $25,000,000;

(e)    Payment of Fees. All Fees shall be paid on the dates due, in immediately available funds in Dollars, to the Paying Agent for distribution, if and as appropriate, among the Lenders, except that the Borrowers shall pay the Fees provided under Section 2.05(c) and 2.05(d) directly to the applicable Agents and applicable Lenders. Once paid, none of the Fees shall be refundable under any circumstances.

Section 2.06 Interest on Initial Term Loan. (a) Subject to the provisions of Section 2.06(b), the Initial Term Loan shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted LIBOR Rate then in effect plus the Applicable Margin.

(c)Accrued interest on the Initial Term Loan shall be payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date; provided, that (i) interest accrued pursuant to Section 2.06(b) (and all interest on past due interest) shall be payable on demand, (ii) in the event of any repayment or prepayment of the Initial Term Loan, accrued interest on the principal amount repaid or prepaid shall be payable on the date of such repayment or prepayment.

(d)All interest hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days, except that interest computed by reference to the Base Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year), and in each case shall be payable for the actual numbers of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day). The applicable Alternate Base Rate or Adjusted LIBOR Rate shall be determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and such determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Interest hereunder shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof before and after judgment, and before and after the commencement of any Insolvency Proceeding.

Section 2.07    Termination of Commitments. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.16, the Term Commitments shall automatically terminate at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the Closing Date.

Section 2.08 Amortization of the Initial Term Loan. (a) The Borrowers shall pay to the Paying Agent, for the account of the Lenders, by no later than 1:00 p.m. New York time on each Interest Payment Date, commencing on February 1, 2019, or, if any such date is not a Business Day, on the immediately following Business Day (each such date, a “Term Loan Repayment Date”), a principal amount equal to $2,083,333.34 (as adjusted from time to time pursuant to Section 2.09), together in each case with accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount to be paid to but excluding the date of such payment. Assuming the Paying Agent receives such payment by 1:00 p.m. New York time on the date due, the Paying Agent shall disburse the proceeds thereof to the respective Lenders pro rata on that same

day. Any payment received after 1:00 p.m. New York time shall be disbursed on the next Business Day. Any payment received after 1:00 p.m. New York time shall be deemed received on the next Business Day and interest shall continue to accrue thereon until such next Business Day at the applicable interest rate set forth herein. All amounts borrowed and repaid may not be reborrowed.

(b)    To the extent not previously irrevocably paid in full in cash, the Initial Term Loan shall be due and payable in full on the Maturity Date.

Section 2.09    Optional and Mandatory Prepayments of Initial Term Loan.

(a)Optional Prepayments. The Borrowers shall have the right at any time on any Term Loan Repayment Date to prepay, in whole or in part, the Initial Term Loan; provided, that each partial prepayment shall be in an amount that is an integral multiple of $100,000 and not less than
$1,000,000 and that on the date specified for such prepayment, the Borrowers shall pay to the Paying Agent, for the account of the Lenders, in addition to the principal amount to be prepaid, all accrued but unpaid interest then due thereon, the Prepayment Fee (if any), and all other sums then due hereunder.

(b)
Mandatory Prepayments. If at any time prior to repayment in full of the Initial
Term Loan:

(i)    one or more of the Term Loan Priority Collateral Vessel(s) is sold, the Borrowers shall pay to the Paying Agent, for the account of the Lenders, upon the date such Vessel(s) is/are sold, an amount equal: (1) for any Vessel built prior to January 1, 2009, the net proceeds of sale, and (2) for any Vessel built on or after January 1, 2009 (other than the “OSG COURAGEOUS” or “OSG ENDURANCE”), the net proceeds of such sale and, to the extent that after application of such net sales proceeds to the Borrowers’ Obligations, the Fair Market Value (based upon the most recent appraisals) of the Term Loan Priority Collateral Vessels built on or after January 1, 2009 is less than 143% of the then outstanding principal balance of the Term Loans, such additional amount necessary to bring the Borrowers back into compliance with the Collateral Value to Loan Test;

(ii)    one or more of the Term Loan Priority Collateral Vessel(s) sustains a Total Loss, the Borrowers shall pay to the Paying Agent, for the account of the Lenders, within ninety
(90) days after the date of such loss (in no event to extend beyond the Maturity Date), an amount equal to:
(1)for any Vessel built prior to January 1, 2009, all insurance proceeds payable as a result of such Total Loss, and (2) for any Vessel built on or after January 1, 2009, all insurance proceeds payable as a result of such Total Loss, and, to the extent that after application of such insurance proceeds (if any) to the Borrowers’ Obligations, the Fair Market Value (based upon the most recent appraisals) of the Term Loan Priority Collateral Vessels built on or after January 1, 2009 is less than 143% of the then outstanding principal balance of the Term Loans, such additional amount necessary to bring the Borrowers back into compliance with the Collateral Value to Loan Test;

(iii)    if one or more ABL Priority Collateral Vessel(s) is/are sold or sustains a Total Loss, the Borrowers shall pay to the Paying Agent, for the account of the Lenders, all excess sums remaining after (A) if applicable, the purchase by a Borrower of a replacement vessel as permitted pursuant to the terms of the ABL Loan Documents and (B) payment in full of all amounts then due to the ABL Lenders under Section 2.09(b)(vi) of the ABL Loan Documents;

(iv)    if there occurs a Tug Refinance Event or a sale or other disposition of either or both of the vessels named “OSG COURAGEOUS” or “OSG ENDURANCE”, the Borrowers shall pay to the Paying Agent, for the account of the Lenders, upon the occurrence of such event, an amount equal to 65% of the original appraised Fair Market Value of said vessel(s), plus all accrued but

unpaid interest then due with respect to the principal amount to be prepaid. For the avoidance of doubt, any Total Loss of either the “OSG COURAGEOUS” or “OSG ENDURANCE” shall be governed by the provisions of Section 2.09(b)(ii); and

(v)    if on each anniversary of the Closing Date, the Borrowers fail to satisfy the Collateral Value to Loan Test, based upon the most recent appraisals received by the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent and the Lenders and acceptable to the Required Lenders from an Approved Appraiser, the Borrowers shall either (1) pay to the Paying Agent, for the account of the Lenders, upon ten (10) days demand therefor, an amount necessary to cause the Fair Market Value of all Term Loan Priority Collateral Vessels built on or after January 1, 2009 to be not less than 143% of the then outstanding principal balance of the Term Loans, or (2) deliver to the Collateral Agent, upon ten (10) days demand therefor, such additional collateral acceptable to the Collateral Agent in an amount necessary to bring the Borrowers back into compliance with the Collateral Value to Loan Test. If the Borrowers elect to pledge additional collateral, the Borrowers, at their own cost and expense, shall deliver to the Lenders and the Collateral Agent such documents, opinions and certificates, make such filings, and take such actions as the Collateral Agent may require.

No Prepayment Fee shall be due in connection with any prepayment made under this Section 2.09(b).

(c)Application of Prepayments. All prepayments made pursuant to Section 2.09(b) shall be applied by the Lenders to reduce the remaining principal installments due hereunder in the inverse order of maturity.

(d)Notice of Prepayment. The Borrower Representative shall notify the Lenders (with a copy to the Paying Agent) by written notice of any prepayment hereunder, not later than 1:00 p.m., New York City time, on the third (3rd) Business Day before the date of prepayment. Each such notice shall be irrevocable; provided, that a notice of prepayment in full of the Initial Term Loan may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities in order to refinance in full all Obligations hereunder, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Borrower Representative (by notice to the Lenders on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied. Each such notice shall specify the prepayment date, the principal amount to be prepaid and, in the case of a mandatory prepayment, a reasonably detailed calculation of the amount of such prepayment.

Section 2.10    Alternate Rate of Interest. If prior to the commencement of any Interest Period:

(a)the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be made in good faith and shall be final and conclusive absent manifest error) that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the Adjusted LIBOR Rate for such Interest Period; or

(b)the Administrative Agent is advised in writing by the Required Lenders that the Adjusted LIBOR Rate for such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of making or maintaining their portion of the Initial Term Loan for such Interest Period; then the Administrative Agent shall give written notice thereof to the Borrowers and the Lenders as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrowers and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, the Initial Term Loan shall thereafter bear interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin as agreed to by the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent or, in the absence of such agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent in consultation with the Lenders.

Section 2.11    Increased Costs; Change in Legality. (a) If any Change in Law shall:

(i)    impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge, liquidity or similar requirement against property of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by or participated in by, any Lender (except any such reserve requirement reflected in the Adjusted LIBOR Rate);

(ii)    impose on any Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than with respect to Taxes) affecting this Agreement or the Term Loans made by such Lender; or

(iii)    subject any Lender to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes indemnified pursuant to Section 2.15, (B) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (f) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its portion of the Initial Term Loan, principal, letters of credit, Commitments or other Obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Lender of making or maintaining its portion of the Initial Term Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Initial Term Loan) or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender hereunder (whether of principal, interest or otherwise), then the Borrowers will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered; it being understood that this Section 2.11 shall not apply to Taxes that are Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes indemnified pursuant to Section 2.14.

(b)If any Lender determines (in good faith, but in its sole and absolute discretion) that any Change in Law regarding Capital Requirements has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Term Commitment of such Lender or the Term Loans to be made by such Lender, to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy), then from time to time the Borrowers will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company, for any such reduction suffered.

(c)A certificate of a Lender setting forth in reasonable detail the amount or amounts necessary to compensate such Lender or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in clause
(a)    or (b) of this Section 2.11 shall be delivered to the Borrowers (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) and shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error. The Borrowers shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) Business Days after receipt thereof.

(d) Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this Section 2.11 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that (i) the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate a Lender for any increased costs or reductions incurred more than one hundred eighty (180) days prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrowers of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor, (ii) 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 indicate the period of retroactive effect thereof and (iii) such increased costs or reductions shall only be payable by the Borrowers to the applicable Lender under this Section 2.11 to the extent that such Lender is generally imposing such charges on similarly situated borrowers.

Section 2.12 Breakage Payments. In the event of (a) the payment or prepayment, whether optional or mandatory, of the Initial Term Loan or Incremental Term Loan earlier than the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default), (b) the failure to make any prepayment on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (whether or not such notice is permitted to be withdrawn by the Borrowers), or (c) the assignment of any Lender’s Interest in the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan earlier than the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Borrowers pursuant to Section 2.15, then, in any such event, the Borrowers shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense attributable to such event (including any loss, expense or liability incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds required by such Lender to fund its portion of the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan but excluding loss of anticipated profits). Each Lender shall calculate any amount or amounts in good faith and in a commercially reasonable manner. A certificate of any Lender setting forth in reasonable detail any amount or amounts that such Lender is entitled to receive pursuant to this Section
2.12 shall be delivered to the Borrowers (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) and shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error. The Borrowers shall pay such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within ten (10) Business Days after receipt thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 2.12 shall not apply to losses, costs or expenses resulting from Taxes, as to which Section 2.14 shall govern.

Section 2.13 Payments Generally; Pro Rata Treatment; Sharing of Setoffs. (a) The Borrowers shall make each payment required to be made by them hereunder or under any other Term Loan Document (whether of principal, interest or fees, or of amounts payable under Section 2.11, 2.12 or 2.14, or otherwise) on or before the time expressly required hereunder or under such other Term Loan Document for such payment (or, if no such time is expressly required, prior to 2:00 p.m., New York City time), on the date when due, in immediately available funds, without setoff, deduction or counterclaim. 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 Paying Agent in accordance with wiring instructions provided by the Paying Agent, except that payments pursuant to Section 2.11, 2.12, 2.14 and 11.03 shall be made directly to the persons entitled thereto and payments pursuant to other Term Loan Documents shall be made to the persons specified therein. The Paying Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other person to the appropriate recipient promptly following its receipt thereof. If any payment under any Term Loan Document shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, unless specified otherwise, 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. All payments under each Term Loan Document shall be made in Dollars.

(b)Subject to Section 9.01, if at any time insufficient funds are received by and available to the Paying Agent to pay in full all amounts of principal, interest and fees then due hereunder, such funds shall be applied (i) first, towards payment of interest and fees then due 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 then due hereunder, ratably among the parties entitled thereto in accordance with the amounts of principal then due to such parties.

(c)If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim (including pursuant to Section 11.08) or otherwise (including by exercise of its rights under the Security Documents), obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on its portion of the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan resulting in such Lender receiving payment of a greater proportion of the principal of or interest thereon on the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan than the proportion received by any other Lender entitled thereto, then the Lender receiving such greater proportion shall purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the interests 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 portions of the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan; 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 Section 2.13(c) shall not be construed to apply to any payment made by the Borrowers pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement or any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its portion of the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan to any Eligible Assignee or participant. Each Loan Party consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable Legal Requirements, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against each Loan Party rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Loan Party in the amount of such participation. If under applicable Insolvency Law any Secured Party receives a secured claim in lieu of a setoff or counterclaim to which this Section 2.13(c) applies, such Secured Party shall, to the extent practicable, exercise its rights in respect of such secured claim in a manner consistent with the rights to which the Secured Party is entitled under this Section 2.13(c) to share in the benefits of the recovery of such secured claim.

(d)Unless the Paying Agent shall have received written notice from the Borrowers prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Paying Agent for the account of the Lenders hereunder that the Borrowers will not make such payment, the Paying Agent may assume that the Borrowers have made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders the amount due. In such event, if the Borrowers have not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders severally agrees to repay to the Paying Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender.

(e)If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.02, 2.13(d) or 11.03(e), then the Paying Agent may, at the direction of the Administrative Agent (notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof), apply any amounts thereafter received by it for the account of such Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations under such Sections until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid.

Section 2.14 Taxes. (a) Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Loan Parties hereunder or under any other Term Loan Document shall be made without setoff, counterclaim or other defense and free and clear of and without deduction, reduction or withholding for any and all Taxes except as required by applicable Legal Requirements. If any amounts on account of Indemnified Taxes are required to be deducted or withheld from such payments, then (i) the sum payable by or on behalf of such Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions, reductions or withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.14) the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or any Lender, as the case may be, receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions, reductions or withholdings been made, (ii) the Borrowers shall make such deductions, reductions or withholdings, and (iii) the Borrowers shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority the full amount deducted or withheld in accordance with applicable Legal Requirements.

(b)In addition, the Borrowers shall timely pay any Other Taxes to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Legal Requirements, or at the option of the Paying Agent reimburse the Paying Agent for payment of any Other Taxes.

(c)The Borrowers agree to indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent and each Lender, within ten (10) Business Days after written demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes paid by the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, on or with respect to any payment by or on account of any obligation of the Borrowers hereunder or under any other Term Loan Document or any Other Taxes paid in good faith by the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such Lender (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.14) and any penalties, interest and 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 Borrowers by a Lender (in each case with a copy delivered concurrently to the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent), or by the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(d)Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent and the Paying Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrowers have not already indemnified the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent (as applicable) for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrowers to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 11.04(e) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register, and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent in connection with any Term Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent (as applicable) shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent (as applicable) to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Term Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent (as applicable) to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent or Paying Agent (as applicable) under this clause (d).

(e)As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, and in any event within thirty (30) days following any such payment being due, by the Borrowers to a Governmental Authority, the Borrowers shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment or a copy of the Tax Return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent. If the Borrowers fail to pay any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes when due to the appropriate Governmental Authority or fail to remit to the Administrative Agent the required receipts or other documentary evidence, the Borrowers shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent and each Lender for any incremental Taxes or expenses that may become payable by the Administrative Agent, Paying Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, as a result of any such failure.

(f)Any Foreign Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax with respect to payments made under any Term Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Paying Agent such properly completed and executed documentation and information reasonably requested by the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally able to do so, (i) furnish to the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Paying Agent on or prior to the date it becomes a party hereto, either (a) two accurate and complete originally executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Forms W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable (or successor form) (claiming the

benefits of an applicable tax treaty), (b) two (2) accurate and complete originally executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Forms W-8ECI (or successor form), together with required attachments, (c) two (2) accurate and complete originally executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Forms W-8IMY (or successor form), (d) two (2) accurate and complete originally executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Forms W- 8EXP (or successor form) or (e) if such Foreign Lender is relying on the so-called “portfolio interest exemption,” an accurate and complete originally executed “Portfolio Interest Certificate” in the form of Exhibit P and two (2) accurate and complete originally executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Forms W- 8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable (or successor form), in the case of each of the preceding clauses (a) through (e), together with any required schedules or attachments, certifying, in each case, to such Foreign Lender’s legal entitlement to an exemption or reduction from U.S. federal withholding tax with respect to all payments hereunder, (ii) promptly notify the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Paying Agent if such Foreign Lender no longer qualifies for the exemption or reduction that it previously claimed as a result of change in such Foreign Lender’s circumstances, and (iii) to the extent it may lawfully do so at such times, provide a new Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable (or successor form), Form W- 8ECI (or successor form), Form W-8IMY (or successor form), Form W-8EXP (or successor form) and/or Portfolio Interest Certificate upon the expiration or obsolescence of any previously delivered form, or at any other time upon the reasonable request of the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent, to reconfirm any complete exemption from, or any entitlement to a reduction in, U.S. federal withholding tax with respect to any payment hereunder. Each Lender that is not a Foreign Lender shall
(i) furnish to the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Paying Agent on or prior to the date it becomes a party hereto two (2) accurate and complete originally executed U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 (or successor form) or otherwise establish an exemption from U.S. backup withholding and (ii) to the extent it may lawfully do so at such times, provide a new Form W-9 (or successor form) upon the expiration or obsolescence of any previously delivered form, or at any other time upon the reasonable request of the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent or the Paying Agent, to reconfirm its complete exemption from U.S. federal withholding tax with respect to any payment hereunder.

(g)If a payment made to a Lender under any Term Loan Document may be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed under 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 Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Paying Agent, at the time or times prescribed by law and at such times reasonably requested by the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent, (A) such documentation prescribed by applicable Legal Requirements (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code), and (B) such other documentation reasonably requested by the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Paying Agent, as may be necessary for the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Paying Agent, to comply with their obligations under FATCA, 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, or notify the Administrative Agent , the Paying Agent and the Borrowers that such Lender is not in compliance with FATCA. Solely for purposes of this Section 2.14(g), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

(h)If the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or a Lender (or an assignee) determines in its sole discretion that it has received a refund of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the Borrowers or with respect to which the Borrowers have paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.14, it shall pay over such refund to the Borrowers (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Borrowers under this Section 2.14 with respect to the Indemnified Taxes or the Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such Lender (or assignee) and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided, however, that if the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such

Lender (or assignee) is required to repay all or a portion of such refund to the relevant Governmental Authority, the Borrowers, upon the request of the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such Lender (or assignee), shall repay the amount paid over to the Borrowers that is required to be repaid (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such Lender (or assignee) (as applicable), within three (3) Business Days after receipt of written notice that the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such Lender (or assignee) is required to repay such refund (or a portion thereof) to such Governmental Authority. Nothing contained in this Section 2.14(h) shall require the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or any Lender (or assignee) to make available its Tax Returns or any other information which it deems confidential or privileged to the Borrowers or any other person. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in no event will the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or any Lender (or assignee) be required to pay any amount to the Borrowers the payment of which would place the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such Lender (or assignee) in a less favorable net after-tax position than the Administrative Agent, the Paying Agent or such Lender (or assignee) would have been in if the additional amounts giving rise to such refund or credit of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes had never been paid.

Section 2.15    Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.

(a)Mitigation of Obligations. If any Lender requests compensation under Section 2.11, or if the Borrowers are required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14, then such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office for funding or booking its portion of the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan 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 materially amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.11 or 2.14, as the case may be, in the future, (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense,
(iii) would not require such Lender to take any action inconsistent with its internal policies or legal or regulatory restrictions, and (iv) would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrowers shall pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment. A certificate setting forth such costs and expenses submitted by such Lender to the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(b)Replacement of Lenders. In the event (i) any Lender delivers a certificate requesting compensation pursuant to Section 2.11, (ii) the Borrowers are required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority on account of any Lender pursuant to Section 2.14,
(iii)any Lender refuses to consent to any amendment, waiver or other modification of any Term Loan Document requested by the Borrowers that require the consent of 100% of the Lenders or 100% of all affected Lenders and which, in each case, has been consented to by the Required Lenders, or (iv) any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, the Borrowers may, at their sole expense and effort (including with respect to the processing and recordation fee referred to in Section 11.04(b)), upon notice to such Lender and the Administrative Agent, require such Lender to transfer and assign, without recourse (in accordance with and subject to restrictions contained in Section 11.04; provided that the failure of such assigning Lender to execute an Assignment and Acceptance shall not affect the validity and effect of such assignment), all of its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement to an Eligible Assignee which shall assume such assigned obligations (which Eligible Assignee may be another Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided, that (w) except in the case of clause (iii) above if the effect of such amendment, waiver or other modification of the applicable Term Loan Document would cure any Default then ongoing, no Default shall have occurred and be continuing, (x) such assignment shall not conflict with any applicable Legal Requirement, (y) the Borrowers shall have received the prior written consent of the Administrative Agent, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld or delayed, and (z) the

Borrowers or such assignee shall have paid to the affected Lender in immediately available funds an amount equal to the sum of the principal of and interest and any prepayment premium or penalty (if any) accrued to the date of such payment on such Lender’s portion of the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan (including, in the case of any replacement pursuant to clause (iii) above on any Prepayment Fee due) plus all Fees and other amounts owing to or accrued for the account of such Lender hereunder (including any amounts under Sections 2.11 and 2.12); provided, further, that, if prior to any such transfer and assignment the circumstances or event that resulted in such Lender’s claim for compensation under Section 2.11 or the amounts paid pursuant to Section 2.14, as the case may be, cease to cause such Lender to suffer increased costs or reductions in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital, or cease to result in amounts being payable under Section 2.14, as the case may be (including as a result of any action taken by such Lender pursuant to clause (a) of this Section 2.15), or if such Lender shall waive its right to claim further compensation under Section 2.11 in respect of such circumstances or shall waive its right to further payments under Section 2.14 in respect of such circumstances or event or shall consent to the proposed amendment, waiver, consent or other modification, as the case may be, then such Lender shall not thereafter be required to make any such transfer and assignment hereunder. Each Lender hereby grants to the Administrative Agent an irrevocable power of attorney (which power is coupled with an interest) to execute and deliver, on behalf of such Lender as assignor, any Assignment and Acceptance necessary to effectuate any assignment of such Lender’s interests hereunder in the circumstances contemplated by this Section 2.15(b).

Section 2.16    Increases of the Term Commitments.

(a)    The Borrowers may, from time to time after the Closing Date, request to increase the then effective aggregate principal amount of the Term Commitments and make additional term loans pursuant thereto (such additional term loans, “Incremental Term Loans”); provided that:

(i)    the aggregate principal amount of the increases in the Term Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.16 and the aggregate principal amount of all Incremental Term Loans made pursuant thereto shall not exceed $40,000,000, and the aggregate principal amount of any requested increase shall be in a minimum amount of $15,000,000 and integral multiples of at least
$1,000,000 in excess thereof (or such lower amount that represents all remaining availability pursuant to this Section 2.16);

(ii)    the incurrence of any Incremental Term Loans pursuant to any such increase shall be on the effective date of the respective Incremental Loan Amendment and the proceeds of such Incremental Term Loans shall be used solely for purposes of acquiring new or used vessels;

(iii)    the Borrowers and the Guarantors shall execute and deliver such agreements, instruments and documents and take such other actions as may be reasonably requested by the Increasing Lenders (including any New Lenders) in connection with such increases and at the time of any such proposed increase;

(iv)    (x) on a Pro Forma Basis, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing or would occur after giving effect to such increase and the application of proceeds therefrom and (y) both immediately before and after giving effect to any such increase and the application of proceeds therefrom, each of the representations and warranties made by any Loan Party set forth in Article III or in any other Term Loan Document shall be true and correct in all material respects (or true and correct in all respects in the case of representations and warranties qualified by materiality or Material Adverse Effect) on and as of the date of such increase with the same effect as though made on and as of such date, except to the extent such representations and warranties expressly relate to an earlier date (in which case such representations and warranties shall be true and correct in all material respects

(or true and correct in all respects in the case of representations and warranties qualified by materiality or Material Adverse Effect) on and as of such earlier date);

(v)    immediately after giving effect to the incurrence of any such Incremental Term Loans and the application of proceeds therefrom, the Borrowers shall be in compliance with the Collateral Value to Loan Test;

(vi)    except as otherwise required below, all other terms of such Incremental Term Loans, if not consistent with the terms of the Initial Term Loan, will be as agreed by the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Increasing Lenders (including any New Lenders) providing such Incremental Term Loans; provided, however, that (w) such Incremental Term Loans will share ratably in right of prepayment with the Initial Term Loan pursuant to Section 2.09 (unless the Increasing Lenders (including any New Lenders) holding such Incremental Term Loans agree to participate on a less than ratable basis), (x) such Incremental Term Loans shall have the same Term Loan Repayment Dates as then remain with respect to the Initial Term Loan (with the amount of each payment on each Term Loan Repayment Date applicable to such Incremental Term Loans to be the same (on a proportionate basis) as is theretofore applicable to the Initial Term Loan, thereby increasing the amount of each then remaining payment on each Term Loan Repayment Date proportionately), (y) such Incremental Term Loans shall have the same interest rate and Applicable Margin as the Initial Term Loan and an effective yield after giving effect to any upfront fee and original issue discount thereon (based on the lesser of a three-year average life to maturity or the remaining life to maturity), calculated exclusive of arrangement, structuring and underwriting fees with respect to such Incremental Term Loans, not greater than the highest effective yield in connection with the making of the Initial Term Loan, and (z) all additional Collateral given in respect of any Incremental Term Loans shall be the same as, and shared equally and ratably with, the Collateral previously given to secure the Borrowers’ Obligations in connection with the Initial Term Loan;

(vii)    the Incremental Term Loans to be made pursuant to this Section 2.16 (and the Guarantees thereof by the Guarantors) shall be permitted Indebtedness under the ABL Facility and shall constitute “Term Loan Obligations” (as defined in the Intercreditor Agreement) for purposes of the Intercreditor Agreement;

(viii)    the Liens granted pursuant to the Security Documents to secure the obligations in respect of the Incremental Term Loans made pursuant to this Section 2.16 shall be permitted Liens under the ABL Loan Documents; and

(ix)    no Incremental Term Loans shall be permitted or made after the fourth anniversary of the Closing Date.

(b)    Any request under this Section 2.16 shall be submitted by the Borrowers in writing to the Lenders. The Borrowers may also specify any fees offered to those Lenders (the “Increasing Lenders”) that agree to increase the principal amount of their Term Commitments and make Incremental Term Loans pursuant thereto, which fees may be variable based upon the amount by which any such Lender is willing to increase the amount of its Term Commitment and make Incremental Term Loans pursuant thereto. No Lender shall have any obligation, express or implied, to offer to increase the aggregate amount of its Term Commitment. Only the consent of the Administrative Agent and each Increasing Lender shall be required for an increase in the aggregate amount of the Term Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.16. No Lender which declines to increase the amount of its Term Commitment may be replaced with respect to its existing Term Commitment as a result thereof without such Lender’s consent.

(c)    Each Increasing Lender shall as soon as reasonably practicable specify in writing the amount of the proposed increase of the Term Commitments that it is willing to assume (provided that any Lender not so responding within five (5) Business Days shall be deemed to have declined such a request). The Borrowers may accept some or all of the offered amounts or designate new lenders that are reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent as additional Lenders hereunder in accordance with this Section 2.16 (each such new lender being a “New Lender”), which New Lenders may assume all or a portion of the increase in the aggregate amount of the applicable Term Commitments. The Administrative Agent, in consultation with the Borrowers, shall have discretion jointly to adjust the allocation of the increased aggregate principal amount of the Term Commitments among Increasing Lenders and New Lenders.

(d)    Subject to the foregoing, any increase requested by the Borrowers shall be effective upon (A) delivery to the Increasing Lenders of each of the following documents: (i) an originally executed copy of a joinder agreements in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Increasing Lenders and the Administrative Agent (each, an “Incremental Joinder Agreement”) signed by a duly authorized officer of each New Lender (if any); (ii) a notice to the Increasing Lenders and New Lenders, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Increasing Lenders (including any New Lenders), signed by a Financial Officer of the Borrower Representative; (iii) an Officer’s Certificate of the Borrower Representative, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to the Increasing Lenders (including any New Lenders); (iv) to the extent requested by any New Lender or Increasing Lender, executed Notes issued by the Borrowers in accordance with Section 2.04; (v) an amendment (an “Incremental Loan Amendment”) to this Agreement and, as appropriate, the other Term Loan Documents, executed by the Borrowers, Holdings, each Increasing Lender (if any), each New Lender (if any) and the Agents; (vi) favorable written opinions from counsel to the Borrowers and Holdings, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent, dated the effective date of the Incremental Loan Amendment, addressed to the Agents and the Increasing Lenders and, if applicable, any New Lenders (and allowing for reliance by their permitted successors and assigns on customary terms), covering such matters relating to such Incremental Term Loan(s) and the documents to be executed and delivered in connection therewith; and (vii) any other certificates or documents that the Increasing Lenders (including any New Lenders) shall reasonably request, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Increasing Lenders (including any New Lenders), and (B) satisfaction on the effective date of the Incremental Loan Amendment of (x) each of the conditions specified in Section 4.02 (it being understood that all references to “the date of such Credit Extension” or similar language in Section 4.02 shall be deemed to refer to the effective date of the Incremental Loan Amendment), and (y) such other conditions as the parties thereto shall agree. Any such increase shall be in an aggregate amount equal to
(A) the amount that Increasing Lenders (including any New Lenders) are willing to assume as increases to the amount of their Term Commitments plus (B) the amount offered by New Lenders with respect to the Term Commitments, in either case as adjusted by the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.16. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 11.02, the Administrative Agent is expressly permitted, without the consent of the other Lenders, to amend the Term Loan Documents to the extent necessary or appropriate in the reasonable opinion of the Administrative Agent to give effect to any increases pursuant to this Section 2.16.

ARTICLE III REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
Each Loan Party hereby represents and warrants to the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent, the Paying Agent and each of the Lenders on the Closing Date and upon each Credit Extension thereafter that:

Section 3.01 Organization; Powers. Each Loan Party (a) is duly incorporated or organized and validly existing under the laws of the jurisdiction of its incorporation or organization, as the case may be,
(b)has all requisite power and authority (corporate or otherwise) and all requisite governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals to carry on its business as now conducted and to own, lease and operate its property, except for such governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals that the failure to obtain would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, and (c) is registered, qualified, licensed and in good standing to do business in every jurisdiction where such qualification is required, except in such jurisdictions where the failure to so register, qualify, be licensed or be in good standing would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

The Term Loan Documents to be entered into by each Loan Party are within such Loan Party’s powers and have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate or other organizational action on the part of each such Loan Party. Each Term Loan Document has been duly executed and delivered by each Loan Party thereto and constitutes a legal, valid and binding obligation of each such Loan Party, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or other similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and subject to general principles of equity, regardless of whether considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.

Section 3.03 No Conflicts; No Default. The Term Loan Documents (a) do not require any consent, exemption, authorization or approval of, registration or filing with, or any other action by, any Governmental Authority or other person, except (i) such as have been duly obtained or made and are in full force and effect, (ii) filings necessary to perfect or maintain the perfection or priority of the Liens created by the Security Documents, and (iii) consents, approvals, exemptions, authorizations, registrations, filings, permits or actions the failure of which to obtain or perform would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, (b) will not violate the Organizational Documents of any Loan Party, (c) will not violate or result in a default or require any consent or approval under any indenture, instrument, agreement, or other document binding upon any Loan Party or any of its property or to which any Loan Party or any of its property is subject, or give rise to a right thereunder to require any payment to be made by any Loan Party, except for violations, defaults or the creation of such rights that would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, (d) will not violate any Legal Requirement (including the Jones Act), except for violations that would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, and (e) will not result in the creation or imposition of (or the obligation to create or impose) any Lien on any property of any Loan Party, other than the Liens created by the Security Documents and the ABL Loan Documents. No Default has occurred and is continuing.

Section 3.04 Financial Statements; Projections. (a) The Borrowers have heretofore delivered to the Lenders (I) the audited consolidated balance sheets and related consolidated statements of income, stockholders’ equity and cash flows of Holdings and its Subsidiaries as of the fiscal years ended December 31, 2015, December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017, (II) the unaudited consolidated balance sheets and related consolidated statements of income, stockholders’ equity and cash flows of Holdings and its Subsidiaries for the fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2018, and (III) (1) actual profit and loss statements, a fleet utilization analysis and detailed EBITDA calculations for the months of October, 2017, November 2017, and December 2017 as well as cumulative fourth quarter, 2017, (2) actual profit and loss statements, a fleet utilization analysis and detailed EBITDA calculations for the months of October, 2018, and November, 2018, and (3) projections, including profit and loss statements, a fleet utilization and proforma EBITDA calculation for December, 2018, and cumulative fourth quarter, 2018. Such financial statements and other information, and all financial statements delivered pursuant to Sections 5.01(a), (b) and (c), have been and will be prepared in accordance with GAAP consistently applied throughout the applicable period covered and present fairly and accurately in all material respects the financial condition and results of operations and, if applicable, cash flows of Holdings and its

Subsidiaries, in each case, as of the dates and for the periods to which they relate (subject, in the case of interim financial statements, to normal year-end audit adjustments and the absence of footnotes). Except as set forth in the financial statements referenced in subparts (I) and (II) of this Section 3.04(a), as of the Closing Date, there are no liabilities of Holdings, the Borrowers or any of their respective Subsidiaries of any kind, whether accrued, contingent, absolute, determined, determinable or otherwise, that would reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(b)    [Reserved].

(c)    The Borrowers have heretofore delivered to the Lenders the forecasts of financial performance consisting of projected income statements, balance sheets and cash flows of Holdings and its Subsidiaries for the fiscal years 2018-2022 (the “Projections”) and the assumptions upon which the Projections are based. The Projections have been prepared in good faith by Holdings and the Borrowers based upon assumptions that are reasonable at the time made and at the time the related Projections are made available to the Lenders (it being understood by the parties that projections by their nature are inherently uncertain, no assurances are being given that the results reflected in such Projections will be achieved, that actual results may differ and that such differences may be material).

(d)    (i) In the case of Credit Extensions to be made on the Closing Date, since December 31, 2017, there has not occurred any event, change, effect, development, circumstance or condition that, either individually or in the aggregate, has caused or would reasonably be expected to cause a Closing Date Material Adverse Effect.

(ii) In the case of Credit Extensions made after the Closing Date, since the Closing Date, there has been no event, change, effect, circumstance, condition, development or occurrence that has had, or would reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 3.05 Properties. (a) Each Borrower has good and marketable title to, or valid leasehold interests in, all its tangible property material to its business, free and clear of all Liens and irregularities, deficiencies and defects in title except for Permitted Liens (or (x) in the case of Collateral Vessels, Permitted Collateral Vessel Liens and (y) in the case of Chartered Vessels, Permitted Charter Vessel Liens) and minor irregularities, deficiencies and defects in title that, individually or in the aggregate, do not, and would not reasonably be expected to, interfere with its ability to conduct its business as currently conducted or to utilize such property for its intended purpose. The tangible property of the Borrowers (x) taken as a whole, (i) is in good operating order, condition and repair (ordinary wear and tear from proper use alone excepted), but excluding, for purposes of this clause (i), the Vessels and Chartered Vessels (which are covered by Section 5.16) and (ii) constitutes all the tangible property which is required for the business and operations of the Borrowers as presently conducted, and (y) with respect to Vessels and Chartered Vessels, satisfies the requirements set forth in Section 5.16.

(b)Schedule 3.05(b) contains a true and complete list of each ownership and leasehold interest in Real Property (including all modifications, amendments and supplements thereto with respect to leased Real Property) (i) owned by any Borrower as of the Closing Date and describes the use and type of interest therein held by such Borrower, and (ii) leased or subleased or otherwise occupied or utilized by any Borrower, as lessee or sublessee, franchisee or licensee, as of the Closing Date and describes the use and type of interest therein held by such Borrower.

(c)No mortgage encumbers improved Real Property that is located in an area that has been identified by the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development as an area having special flood hazards within the meaning of the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, unless flood insurance available under such Act has been obtained in accordance with Section 5.04.

(d)Each Borrower owns or has rights to use all of its tangible property and all rights with respect to any of the foregoing used in, necessary for or material to, such Borrower’s business as currently conducted, subject to Permitted Liens (or (x) in the case of Collateral Vessels, Permitted Collateral Vessel Liens and (y) in the case of Chartered Vessels, Permitted Chartered Vessel Liens). The use by each Borrower of its tangible property and all such rights with respect to the foregoing do not infringe on the rights or other interests of any person, other than any infringement that would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. No claim has been made upon any Borrower and remains outstanding that any Borrower’s use of any of its tangible property does or may violate the rights of any third party that has had, or would reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 3.06 Intellectual Property. Each Borrower owns or is licensed to use, free and clear of all Liens (other than Permitted Liens) and pursuant to valid and enforceable agreements, all material Intellectual Property necessary in the operation of such Borrower’s business. The operation of the respective businesses of each Borrower as currently conducted does not infringe upon, misuse, misappropriate, or violate any Intellectual Property held by any person, except to the extent that any such infringement, misuse, misappropriation or violation would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. There are no actions, suits, claims, disputes, proceedings or, to the knowledge of any Loan Party, investigations at law or in equity, by or before any Governmental Authority now pending or, to the knowledge of any Loan Party, threatened against or affecting any Borrower or any business property or rights of any Borrower regarding any of the Intellectual Property owned by any Borrower, except to the extent that any such actions, suits, claims, disputes, proceedings or investigations would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 3.07 Equity Interests and Subsidiaries. (a) Schedule 3.07(a) sets forth, as of the Closing Date and after giving effect to the Transactions, a list of (i) each Loan Party and each such Loan Party’s jurisdiction of incorporation or organization, and (ii) the number of each class of each Loan Party’s Equity Interests authorized, and the number outstanding, and the number of Equity Interests covered by all outstanding options, warrants, rights of conversion or purchase and similar rights. All Equity Interests of each Loan Party are duly and validly issued and are fully paid and non-assessable, and all Equity Interests of OBS are owned by Holdings and all Equity Interests of each Subsidiary of OBS are owned by OBS, directly or indirectly, through Subsidiaries. Each Loan Party is the record and beneficial owner of, and has good and marketable title to, the Equity Interests pledged by (or purporting to be pledged by) it under the Security Documents, free of any and all Liens, rights or claims of other persons, except the security interests created by the ABL Security Documents (subject to the Intercreditor Agreement) and any Permitted Liens that arise by operation of applicable Legal Requirements and are not voluntarily granted. As of the Closing Date, except as set forth in Schedule 3.07(a), there are no outstanding warrants, options or other rights (including derivatives) to purchase, or shareholder, voting trust or similar agreements outstanding with respect to, or property that is convertible into, or that requires the issuance or sale of, any such Equity Interests (or any economic or voting interests therein).

(b)No consent of any person, including any general or limited partner, any other member or manager of a limited liability company, any shareholder, any other trust beneficiary or derivative counterparty, is necessary in connection with the creation, perfection or First Priority (or, to the extent constituting ABL Priority Collateral, Second Priority) Lien status (or the maintenance thereof) of the security interest of the Collateral Agent in any Equity Interests pledged to the Collateral Agent under the Security Documents or the exercise by the Collateral Agent or any Lender of the voting or other rights provided for in the Security Documents or the exercise of remedies in respect of such Equity Interests as provided therein.

(c)A complete and accurate organizational chart, showing the ownership structure of the Borrowers as of the Closing Date, after giving effect to the Transactions, is set forth on Schedule 3.07(c).

(d)As of the Closing Date, the Subsidiaries of OBS set forth on Schedule 3.07(d)(i) are the only Immaterial Subsidiaries, which are in the process of being, or are to be, dissolved. Prior to their dissolution, such Immaterial Subsidiaries shall nonetheless be Borrowers subject to the same restrictions and obligations as any other Borrower other than as specifically set forth in Sections 4.01(b), 4.01(f) and 4.01(i). Upon dissolution, such Immaterial Subsidiaries shall cease to be Borrowers hereunder and the Collateral Agent shall release its First Priority Liens on the Equity Interests of such Subsidiaries and, to the extent applicable, any of their assets.

Section 3.08 Litigation; Compliance with Legal Requirements. (a) There are no actions, suits, claims, disputes, proceedings or, to the knowledge of any Loan Party, investigations at law or in equity by or before any Governmental Authority now pending or, to the knowledge of any Loan Party, threatened against any Loan Party or any business, property or rights of any Loan Party (i) that purport to affect or involve any Term Loan Document or, as of the Closing Date, any of the Transactions, or (ii) that have resulted, or would reasonably be expected to result, in a Material Adverse Effect.

(b) Each Loan Party is in compliance with all Legal Requirements (including the Jones Act) of, and all applicable restrictions imposed by, all Governmental Authorities in respect of the conduct of its business and the ownership of its property, except such non-compliance as would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 3.09 Agreements. No Loan Party is a party to or has violated any agreement, instrument or other document to which it is a party, or is subject to any corporate or other constitutional restriction, or any restriction (including under its Organizational Documents) to which it is subject, that has resulted, or would reasonably be expected to result, in a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 3.10 Federal Reserve Regulations. (a) No Loan Party is engaged principally, or as one of its important activities, in the business of extending credit for the purpose of purchasing, buying or carrying Margin Stock.

(b) No part of the proceeds of any Credit Extension will be used, whether directly or indirectly, and whether immediately, incidentally or ultimately, for any purpose that entails a violation of, or that is inconsistent with, Regulation U or X. The pledge of the Securities Collateral pursuant to the Security Agreement or the Holdings Pledge Agreement, as applicable, does not violate such regulations.

Section 3.11 Investment Company Act; etc. No Loan Party is an “investment company” or a company “controlled” by an “investment company,” as defined in, or subject to regulation under, the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

Section 3.12 Use of Proceeds. (a) The Borrowers will use the proceeds of the Initial Term Loan to partially refinance the Indebtedness of Holdings and the Borrowers in connection with the Existing Term Loan B Notes. (b) The Borrowers will use the proceeds of any Incremental Term Loans solely to purchase new or used vessels and to pay certain costs incident thereto.

Section 3.13 Beneficial Ownership Certification. As of the date of any Beneficial Ownership Certification, the information included in such Beneficial Ownership Certification is true and correct in all respects.

Section 3.14 Taxes. Each Loan Party has (a) timely filed or caused to be timely filed all U.S. federal and material state, local and foreign Tax Returns required to have been filed by it and all such Tax Returns are true and correct in all material respects, and (b) duly and timely paid or caused to be duly and timely paid all Taxes (whether or not shown on any Tax Return) due and payable by it and all assessments received by it, except (i) Taxes that are being contested in good faith by appropriate legal proceedings being diligently pursued and for which such Loan Party has set aside on its books adequate reserves in accordance with GAAP, or (ii) Taxes the non-payment of which would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. Each Loan Party has made adequate provision in accordance with GAAP for all Taxes not yet due and payable. No Loan Party has knowledge of any proposed or pending tax assessments, deficiencies, audits or other proceedings and no proposed or pending tax assessments, deficiencies, audits or other proceedings have resulted, or would reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect. No Loan Party has ever “participated” in a “reportable transaction” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.6011-4(b)(2). No Loan Party is a party to any tax sharing or similar agreement other than any tax sharing agreement solely between Holdings and the Borrowers. This Section 3.14 shall be qualified in all respects by the disclosures on Schedule 3.14.

Section 3.15 No Material Misstatements. As of the Closing Date, the Loan Parties have disclosed to the Lenders all agreements, instruments and corporate or other restrictions to which they or any of their respective Subsidiaries are subject, and all other matters known to any Loan Party, that would reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect. No reports, financial statements, certificates or other information furnished by or on behalf of any Loan Party in writing to the Administrative Agent or any Lender or delivered hereunder (as modified or supplemented by other information so furnished), when taken as a whole, contains any material misstatement of fact or omits to state any material fact necessary to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading; provided that, with respect to projected financial information and other forward looking information, each Loan Party represents only that such information was prepared in good faith based upon assumptions believed to be reasonable at the time and, if such projected financial information was delivered prior to the Closing Date, as of the Closing Date, it being understood that any such projected financial information may vary from actual results and such variations could be material.

Section 3.16 Labor Matters. There are no strikes, lockouts or slowdowns against any Loan Party pending or, to the knowledge of the Loan Parties, threatened that have resulted in, or would reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect. The hours worked by and payments made to employees of any Loan Party have not been in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended, or any other applicable Legal Requirement dealing with such matters in any manner that has resulted in, or would reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect. All payments due from any Loan Party, or for which any claim may be made against any Loan Party, on account of wages and employee health and welfare insurance and other benefits, have been paid or accrued as a liability on the books of such Loan Party, except to the extent that the failure to do so has not resulted in, and would not reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Effect.

Section 3.17 Solvency. Immediately after the consummation of the Transactions to occur on the Closing Date and immediately following the making of each Credit Extension, and after giving effect to the application of the proceeds of each Credit Extension, the Loan Parties, on a consolidated basis, are, Solvent.

Section 3.18 Employee Benefit Plans. (a) Except as would not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect, (i) the Loan Parties and each of their ERISA Affiliates are in compliance with all applicable Legal Requirements, including all applicable provisions of ERISA and the Code and the regulations and published interpretations thereunder, with respect to all Employee Benefit Plans, (ii) each Employee Benefit Plan complies, and is operated and maintained in compliance, with its

Section 7.01 The Guarantee. The Guarantors hereby guarantee, as primary obligors and not as sureties, to each Secured Party and their respective successors and assigns, the prompt payment and performance in full when due (whether at stated maturity, by required prepayment, declaration, demand, by acceleration or otherwise) of the principal of, premium (if any) and interest (including any interest, fees, costs or charges that would accrue but for the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code after any bankruptcy or insolvency petition under Title 11 of the Bankruptcy Code) on the Initial Term Loan or any Incremental Term Loan made by the Lenders to, and the Notes, if any, held by each Lender of, the

Borrowers, and all other Secured Obligations from time to time owing to the Secured Parties by any Borrower in each case strictly in accordance with the terms thereof (such obligations being herein collectively called the “Guaranteed Obligations”). The Guarantors hereby agree that if the Borrowers shall fail to pay in full when due (whether at stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) any of the Guaranteed Obligations, the Guarantors will promptly pay the same in cash, without any demand or notice whatsoever, and that in the case of any extension of time of payment or renewal of any of the Guaranteed Obligations, the same will be promptly paid in full when due (whether at extended maturity, by acceleration or otherwise) in accordance with the terms of such extension or renewal.

Section 7.02 Obligations Unconditional. The obligations of the Guarantors under Section 7.01 shall constitute a guaranty of payment and performance and not merely of collection and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Legal Requirements, are absolute, irrevocable and unconditional, irrespective of the value, genuineness, validity, regularity or enforceability of the Guaranteed Obligations under this Agreement, the Notes, if any, or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein or therein, or any substitution, release or exchange of any other guarantee of or security for any of the Guaranteed Obligations, and irrespective of any other circumstance whatsoever that might otherwise constitute a legal or equitable discharge or defense of a surety or guarantor (except for payment in full in cash of the Guaranteed Obligations). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is agreed that the occurrence of any one or more of the following shall not alter or impair the liability of the Guarantors hereunder which shall remain absolute, irrevocable and unconditional under any and all circumstances as described above:

(a)at any time or from time to time, without notice to the Guarantors, the time for any performance of or compliance with any of the Guaranteed Obligations shall be extended, or such performance or compliance shall be waived;

(b)any of the acts mentioned in any of the provisions of this Agreement, the other Term Loan Documents or the Notes, if any, or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein or therein shall be done or omitted;

(c)the maturity of any of the Guaranteed Obligations shall be accelerated, or any of the Guaranteed Obligations shall be amended in any respect, or any right under the Term Loan Documents or any other agreement or instrument referred to herein or therein shall be amended or waived in any respect or any other guarantee of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any security therefor shall be released or exchanged in whole or in part or otherwise dealt with; or

The Guarantors waive any and all notice of the creation, renewal, extension, waiver, termination or accrual of any of the Guaranteed Obligations and notice of or proof of reliance by any Secured Party upon this Guarantee or acceptance of this Guarantee, and the Guaranteed Obligations, and any of them, shall conclusively be deemed to have been created, contracted or incurred in reliance upon this Guarantee, and all dealings between the Borrowers and the Secured Parties shall likewise be conclusively presumed to have been had or consummated in reliance upon this Guarantee. This Guarantee shall be construed as a continuing,

absolute, irrevocable and unconditional guarantee of payment and performance without regard to any right of offset with respect to the Guaranteed Obligations at any time or from time to time held by the Secured Parties, and the obligations and liabilities of the Guarantors hereunder shall not be conditioned or contingent upon the pursuit by the Secured Parties or any other person at any time of any right or remedy against the Borrowers or against any other person which may be or become liable in respect of all or any part of the Guaranteed Obligations or against any collateral security or guarantee therefor or right of offset with respect thereto. This Guarantee shall remain in full force and effect and be binding in accordance with and to the extent of its terms upon the Guarantors and their successors and assigns, and shall inure to the benefit of the Secured Parties, and their respective successors and assigns, notwithstanding that from time to time during the term of this Agreement there may be no Guaranteed Obligations outstanding.

Each Guarantor hereby agrees that until the indefeasible payment and satisfaction in full in cash of all Guaranteed Obligations and the expiration and termination of the Commitments of the Lenders under this Agreement it shall waive any claim and shall not exercise any right or remedy, direct or indirect, arising by reason of any performance by it of its guarantee in Section 7.01, whether by subrogation or otherwise, against any of the Borrowers or any other Guarantor of any of the Guaranteed Obligations or any security for any of the Guaranteed Obligations. Any Indebtedness or other Obligation of any Loan Party to a Guarantor shall be unsecured and fully subordinated to such Loan Party’s Secured Obligations in the manner set forth in the Intercompany Subordination Agreement.

Section 7.05 Remedies. The Guarantors agree that, as between the Guarantors and the Lenders, the obligations of the Borrowers under this Agreement and other Term Loan Documents may be declared to be forthwith due and payable as provided in Article VIII (and shall be deemed to have become automatically due and payable in the circumstances provided in Article VIII) for purposes of Section 7.01, notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such declaration (or such obligations from becoming automatically due and payable) as against the Borrowers and that, in the event of such declaration (or such obligations being deemed to have become automatically due and payable), such obligations (whether or not due and payable by the Borrowers) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Guarantors for purposes of Section 7.01.

Section 7.06 Instrument for the Payment of Money. Each Guarantor hereby acknowledges that the guarantee in this Article VII constitutes an instrument for the payment of money, and consents and agrees that any Lender or Agent, at its sole option, in the event of a dispute by such Guarantor in the payment of any moneys due hereunder, shall have the right to bring a motion-action under New York CPLR Section 3213.

Section 7.07 Continuing Guarantee. The guarantee in this Article VII is a continuing guarantee of payment and performance, and shall apply to all Guaranteed Obligations whenever arising.

In any action or proceeding involving any state corporate limited partnership or limited liability company law, or any applicable state, federal or foreign bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization or other Legal Requirement affecting the rights of creditors generally, if the obligations of any Guarantor under Section 7.01 would otherwise be held or

determined to be void, voidable, invalid or unenforceable, or subordinated to the claims of any other creditors, on account of the amount of its liability under Section 7.01, then, notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, the amount of such liability shall, without any further action by such Guarantor, any Loan Party or any other person, be automatically limited and reduced to the highest amount (after giving effect to the rights of subrogation and contribution established in Sections 7.04 and 7.10, respectively) that is valid and enforceable, not void or voidable and not subordinated to the claims of other creditors as determined in such action or proceeding.

Section 7.09 Keepwell. Each Qualified ECP Guarantor hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably undertakes to provide such funds or other support as may be needed from time to time by each other Loan Party to honor all of its obligations under Section 7.01 in respect of Swap Obligations (provided, however, that each Qualified ECP Guarantor shall only be liable under this Section 7.09 for the maximum amount of such liability that can be hereby incurred without rendering its obligations under this Section 7.11, or otherwise under Section 7.01, voidable under applicable law relating to fraudulent conveyance or fraudulent transfer, and not for any greater amount). The obligations of each Qualified ECP Guarantor under this Section 7.09 shall remain in full force and effect until a discharge of Guaranteed Obligations. Each Qualified ECP Guarantor intends that this Section 7.09 constitute, and this Section 7.09 shall be deemed to constitute, a “keepwell, support, or other agreement” for the benefit of each other Loan Party for all purposes of Section 1a(18)(A)(v)(II) of the Commodity Exchange Act.

(m)the Intercreditor Agreement shall cease to be in full force and effect, or shall cease to give the Collateral Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, for the benefit of the Secured Parties or the Lenders, Lien priority, rights, powers and privileges purported to be created and granted under the Intercreditor Agreement, or any Loan Party or any other party thereto or any Affiliate thereof (in each case, other than any Agent or any Lender) shall seek to establish the invalidity or unenforceability thereof; or

(n)
there shall have occurred a Change in Control;

then, and in every such event (other than an event with respect to the Borrowers described in clause (g) or
(h)above), and at any time thereafter during the continuance of such event, the Administrative Agent may, and at the request of the Required Lenders shall, by notice to the Borrowers, take any or all of the following actions, at the same or different times: (i) terminate forthwith the Term Commitments; (ii) declare the Obligations then outstanding to be forthwith due and payable in whole or in part, whereupon the principal of the Obligations so declared to be due and payable, together with any Prepayment Fee and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon and any unpaid accrued Fees and all other liabilities of the Loan Parties accrued hereunder and under any other Term Loan Document, shall become forthwith due and payable, without presentment, demand, protest or any other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived by the Loan Parties, anything contained herein or in any other Term Loan Document or otherwise to the contrary notwithstanding; and (iii) exercise (and/or direct the Collateral Agent to exercise) any and all of its (or the Collateral Agent’s) other rights and remedies under applicable Legal Requirements, hereunder and under the other Term Loan Documents; and in any event with respect to any Loan Party described in clause (g) or (h) above, the Term Commitments shall automatically terminate and the principal of the Obligations then outstanding, together with any Prepayment Fee and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon and any unpaid accrued Fees and all other liabilities of the Loan Parties accrued hereunder and under any other Term Loan Document, shall automatically become due and payable, without presentment, demand, protest or any other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly

waived by the Loan Parties, anything contained herein or in any other Term Loan Document or otherwise to the contrary notwithstanding.

In addition, without limiting the foregoing, in the event of a foreclosure (or other similar exercise of remedies) by the Collateral Agent on any of the Collateral pursuant to a public or private sale or other disposition, the Collateral Agent, the Administrative Agent or any Secured Party may be the purchaser of any or all of such Collateral at any such sale or other disposition and, in addition, the Collateral Agent or the Administrative Agent, as agent for and representative of all of Secured Parties (but not any Lender or Lenders in its or their respective individual capacities unless Required Lenders shall otherwise agree in writing) shall be entitled, for the purpose of bidding and making settlement or payment of the purchase price for all or any portion of the Collateral sold at any such sale or other disposition, to use and apply any of the Obligations as a credit on account of the purchase price for any Collateral payable by Collateral Agent at such sale.

Section 8.02 Rescission. If at any time after termination of the Term Commitments or acceleration of the maturity of the Initial Term Loan and/or any Incremental Term Loans, the Loan Parties shall pay all arrears of interest and Fees and all payments on account of principal of the Initial Term Loan and/or any Incremental Term Loans owing by them that shall have become due otherwise than by acceleration (with interest on principal and Fees and, to the extent permitted by law, on overdue interest, at the rates specified herein) and all Events of Default (other than non-payment of principal of and accrued Prepayment Fee and interest on the Initial Term Loan and/or any Incremental Term Loans due and payable solely by virtue of acceleration) shall be remedied or waived pursuant to Section 11.02, then upon the written consent of the Required Lenders (which may be given or withheld in their sole discretion) and written notice to the Borrowers, the termination of the Term Commitments or the acceleration of the Initial Term Loan and/or any Incremental Term Loans and their consequences may be rescinded and annulled; but such action shall not affect any subsequent Events of Default or impair any right or remedy consequent thereon. The provisions of the preceding sentence are intended merely to bind the Lenders and the other Secured Parties to a decision that may be made at the election of the Required Lenders, and such provisions are not intended to benefit any Loan Party and do not give any Loan Party the right to require the Lenders to rescind or annul any acceleration hereunder, even if the conditions set forth herein are met.

ARTICLE X

THE PAYING AGENT, THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND THE COLLATERAL AGENT

Section 10.01 Appointment. (a) Each Lender hereby irrevocably designates and appoints (and by entering into a Bank Product Agreement, each Bank Product Provider shall be deemed to irrevocably designate and appoint) each of the Paying Agent, the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent as an agent of such Lender under this Agreement and the other Term Loan Documents. Each Lender irrevocably authorizes (and by entering into a Bank Product Agreement, each Bank Product Provider shall be deemed to irrevocably authorize) each Agent, in such capacity, through its agents or employees, to take such actions on its behalf under the provisions of this Agreement and the other Term Loan Documents and to exercise such powers and perform such duties as are delegated to such Agent by the terms of this Agreement and the other Term Loan Documents, together with such actions and powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. The provisions of this Article X are solely for the benefit of the Agents, the Lenders and the Bank Product Providers, and no Loan Party shall have rights as a third party beneficiary of any such provisions. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Agents are

hereby expressly authorized to execute any and all documents (including releases) with respect to the Collateral and any rights of the Secured Parties with respect thereto as contemplated by and in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the other Term Loan Documents. In performing its functions and duties hereunder, each Agent shall act solely as an agent of the Lenders and does not assume and shall not be deemed to have assumed any obligation towards or relationship of agency or trust with or for any Loan Party or any of their respective Subsidiaries. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the use of the term “agent” in this Agreement with reference to the Paying Agent, the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any applicable law. Instead, such term is used merely as a matter of market custom and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between independent contracting parties.

(b) Each Lender irrevocably appoints each other Lender, and the Collateral Agent irrevocably appoints the Administrative Agent, as its agent and bailee for the purpose of perfecting Liens (whether pursuant to Section 8-301(a)(2) of the UCC or otherwise), for the benefit of the Secured Parties, in assets in which, in accordance with the UCC or any other applicable Legal Requirement, a security interest can be perfected by possession or control. Should any Lender (other than the Collateral Agent) obtain possession or control of any such Collateral, such Lender shall notify the Collateral Agent thereof, and, promptly following the Collateral Agent’s request therefor, shall deliver such Collateral to the Collateral Agent or otherwise deal with such Collateral in accordance with the Collateral Agent’s instructions. The Lenders hereby acknowledge and agree (and by entering into a Bank Product Agreement, each Bank Product Provider shall be deemed to acknowledge and authorize) that the Collateral Agent may act, subject to and in accordance with the terms of the Intercreditor Agreement, as the collateral agent for the Secured Parties.

Section 10.02 Agent in Its Individual Capacity. Each person serving as an Agent hereunder shall have the same rights and powers in its capacity as a Lender as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not an Agent, and the term “Lender” or “Lenders” shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated or unless the context otherwise requires, include the person serving as an Agent hereunder in its individual capacity. Such person and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, act as financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity for, and generally engage in any kind of business with, any Loan Party or any Affiliate thereof as if it were not an Agent hereunder and without duty to account therefor to the Lenders.

Section 10.03 Exculpatory Provisions. No Agent shall have any duties or obligations except those expressly set forth in the Term Loan Documents. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
(a)no Agent shall be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, (b) no Agent shall have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated by the Term Loan Documents that such Agent is required to exercise in writing by the Required Lenders (or such other number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary under the circumstances as provided in Section 11.02); provided, that no Agent shall be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose such Agent to liability, if the Agent is not indemnified to its satisfaction, or that is contrary to any Term Loan Document or applicable Legal Requirements including, for the avoidance of doubt, any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any Insolvency Law or that may effect a foreclosure, modification or termination of property of a Defaulting Lender under any Insolvency Law, and (c) except as expressly set forth in the Term Loan Documents, no Agent shall have any duty to disclose or shall be liable for the failure to disclose, any information relating to any Loan Party or any of its Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by the person serving as such Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity. No Agent shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by it with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such other

number or percentage of the Lenders as shall be necessary, or as any Agent shall believe in good faith shall be necessary, under the circumstances as provided in Section 11.02) or in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a final and non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction. No Agent shall be deemed to have knowledge of any Default or Event of Default unless and until written notice thereof describing such Default or Event of Default is given to such Agent by the Borrowers or a Lender, and no Agent shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with any Term Loan Document, (ii) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (iii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants, agreements or other terms or conditions set forth in any Term Loan Document or the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, (iv) the validity, enforceability, effectiveness or genuineness of any Term Loan Document or any other agreement, instrument or document or (v) the satisfaction of any condition set forth in Article IV or elsewhere in any Term Loan Document. Each party to this Agreement acknowledges and agrees that the Administrative Agent and/or the Collateral Agent may from time to time use one or more outside service providers for the tracking of all UCC financing statements (and/or other collateral related filings and registrations from time to time) required to be filed or recorded pursuant to the Term Loan Documents and the notification to the Administrative Agent and/or the Collateral Agent, of, among other things, the upcoming lapse or expiration thereof, and that each of such service providers will be deemed to be acting at the request and on behalf of the Borrowers and the other Loan Parties. No Agent shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by any such service provider. Neither any Agent nor any of its officers, partners, directors, employees or agents shall be liable to the Lenders for any action taken or omitted by any Agent under or in connection with any of the Term Loan Documents.

Section 10.04 Reliance by Agent. Each Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing (including any electronic message, internet or intranet website posting or other distribution) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent, or otherwise authenticated by a proper person. Each Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to have been made by the proper person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. In determining compliance with any condition hereunder to the making of a Term Loan that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender, each Agent may presume that such condition is satisfactory to such Lender unless each Agent shall have received written notice to the contrary from such Lender prior to the making of such Term Loan. Each Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Loan Parties), independent accountants and other advisors selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or advisors.

Section 10.05 Delegation of Duties. Each Agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers under this Agreement or under any other Term Loan Document by or through, or delegate any and all such rights and powers to, any one or more sub-agents appointed by such Agent. Each Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through their respective Affiliates. The exculpatory, indemnification and other provisions of the preceding paragraphs shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Affiliates of each Agent and any such sub-agent, and shall apply, without limiting the foregoing to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as Agent. The Agents shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any sub-agent except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and non-appealable judgment that such Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agent.

Section 10.06    Successor Agent. Each Agent may resign as such at any time upon at least ten
(10) days’ prior notice to the Lenders and the Borrowers and without notice to the Bank Product

Providers. Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, in consultation with the Borrowers, so long as no Event of Default shall have then occurred and be continuing, to appoint a successor Agent from among the Lenders. If no successor shall have been so appointed by the Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within ten (10) days after the retiring Agent gives notice of its resignation, then the retiring Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent, which successor shall be a commercial banking institution or other finance company organized under the laws of the United States (or any State thereof) or a United States branch or agency of a commercial banking institution, in each case, having combined capital and surplus of at least $500,000,000; provided, that if such retiring Agent is unable to find a commercial banking institution or other finance company that is willing to accept such appointment and which meets the qualifications set forth above, the retiring Agent’s resignation shall nevertheless thereupon become effective and the retiring (or retired) Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under the Term Loan Documents, and the Lenders shall assume and perform all of the duties of the Agent under the Term Loan Documents until such time, if any, as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Agent.

Upon the acceptance of its appointment as an Agent hereunder by a successor, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Agent, and the retiring (or retired) Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under the Term Loan Documents. The fees payable by the Borrowers to a successor Agent shall be the same as those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between the Borrowers and such successor. After an Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article X, Section 11.03 and Sections 11.08 to 11.10 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Affiliates in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while it was acting as Agent.

Section 10.07 Non-Reliance on Agent and Other Lenders. Each Lender and Bank Product Provider acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Lender or any of their respective Affiliates and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, conducted its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of the Loan Parties and their Subsidiaries and made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender further represents and warrants that it has reviewed each document made available to it on the Platform in connection with this Agreement and has acknowledged and accepted the terms and conditions applicable to the recipients thereof (including any such terms and conditions set forth, or otherwise maintained, on the Platform with respect thereto). Each Lender (and each Bank Product Provider) also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon any Agent or any other Lender or any of their respective Affiliates and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Term Loan Document or related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.

Section 10.08 Name Agents. The parties hereto acknowledge that the Arranger, the Syndication Agents, and the Documentation Agent hold their titles in name only, and that such titles confer no additional rights or obligations relative to those conferred on any Lender hereunder.

Section 10.09 Indemnification. The Lenders severally agree to indemnify each Agent in its capacity as such and each of its Related Persons (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrowers or Holdings and without limiting the obligation of the Borrowers or Holdings to do so), ratably according to their respective outstanding Term Loans in effect on the date on which indemnification is sought under this Section 10.09 (or, if indemnification is sought after the date upon which all Term Loans shall have been paid in full, ratably in accordance with such outstanding Term Loans and Term Commitments as in effect immediately prior to such date), from and against any and all liabilities, obligations, losses,

damages, fines, penalties, actions, claims, suits, judgments, litigations, investigations, inquiries or proceedings, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind whatsoever that may at any time (whether before or after the payment of the Term Loans) be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against such Agent or Related Person in any way relating to or arising out of, the Term Commitments, the Term Loans, this Agreement, any of the other Term Loan Documents or any documents contemplated by or referred to herein or therein, the Transactions or any of the other transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or any action taken or omitted by such Agent or Related Person under or in connection with any of the foregoing (IN ALL CASES, WHETHER OR NOT CAUSED OR ARISING, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, OUT OF THE COMPARATIVE, CONTRIBUTORY OR SOLE NEGLIGENCE OF ANY AGENT OR
RELATED PERSON); provided, that no Lender shall be liable for the payment of any portion of such liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, fines, penalties, actions, claims, suits, judgments, litigations, investigations, inquiries or proceedings, costs, expenses or disbursements that are found by a final and non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have directly resulted solely and directly from such Agent’s or Related Person’s, as the case may be, gross negligence or willful misconduct. The agreements in this Section 10.09 shall survive the payment of the Term Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder and the termination of the Term Commitments.

Section 10.10 Withholding Taxes. To the extent required by any applicable Legal Requirements, the Paying Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, may withhold from any payment to any Lender an amount equivalent to any applicable withholding Tax. If any payment has been made to any Lender by the Paying Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, without the applicable withholding Tax being withheld from such payment and the Paying Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, has paid over the applicable withholding Tax to the Internal Revenue Service or any other Governmental Authority, or the Internal Revenue Service or any other Governmental Authority asserts a claim that the Paying Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, did not properly withhold Tax from amounts paid to or for the account of any Lender because the appropriate form was not delivered or was not properly executed or because such Lender failed to notify the Paying Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, of a change in circumstance which rendered the exemption from, or reduction of, withholding Tax ineffective or for any other reason, or if the Paying Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, reasonably determines that a payment was made to a Lender pursuant to this Agreement without deduction of applicable withholding tax from such payment, such Lender shall indemnify the Paying Agent or the Administrative Agent, as applicable, fully for all amounts paid, directly or indirectly, by the Paying Agent or Administrative Agent, as applicable, as Tax or otherwise, including any penalties or interest and together with all expenses (including legal expenses, allocated internal costs and out-of-pocket expenses) incurred.

Section 10.11 Lender’s Representations, Warranties and Acknowledgements. (a) Each Lender represents and warrants that it has made its own independent investigation of the financial condition and affairs of the Loan Parties in connection with Credit Extensions hereunder and that it has made and shall continue to make its own appraisal of the creditworthiness of the Loan Parties. No Agent shall have any duty or responsibility, either initially or on a continuing basis, to make any such investigation or any such appraisal on behalf of Lenders or to provide any Lender with any credit or other information with respect thereto, whether coming into its possession before the making of the Term Loans or at any time or times thereafter, and no Agent shall have any responsibility with respect to the accuracy of or the completeness of any information provided to the Lenders. Each Lender acknowledges that no Agent or Related Person of any Agent has made any representation or warranty to it. Except for documents expressly required by any Term Loan Document to be transmitted by an Agent to the Lenders, no Agent shall have any duty or responsibility (either express or implied) to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning any Loan Party or any Affiliate of a Loan Party, including the business, prospects, operations, property, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of any Loan Party or any Affiliate of a Loan Party, that may come in to the possession of an Agent or any of its Related Persons.

(b)Each Lender, by delivering its signature page to this Agreement or an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, shall be deemed to have acknowledged receipt of, and consented to and approved, each Term Loan Document and each other document required to be approved by any Agent, the Required Lenders or the Lenders, as applicable, on the Closing Date.

Section 10.12    Security Documents and Guarantee.

(a)Each Secured Party hereby further authorizes the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent, as applicable, on behalf of and for the benefit of the Secured Parties, to be the agent for and representative of the Secured Parties with respect to the Guarantee, the Collateral and the Term Loan Documents; provided that neither the Administrative Agent nor the Collateral Agent shall owe any fiduciary duty, duty of loyalty, duty of care, duty of disclosure or any other obligation whatsoever to any holder of Bank Product Obligations with respect to any Bank Product Agreement. Subject to Section 11.02, without further written consent or authorization from any Secured Party, the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent, as applicable, may execute any documents or instruments necessary to (i) in connection with a sale or disposition of assets permitted by this Agreement, release any Lien encumbering any item of Collateral that is the subject of such sale or other disposition of assets or to which the Required Lenders (or such other Lenders as may be required to give such consent under Section 11.02) have otherwise consented or (ii) release Holdings from its Guarantee or with respect to which the Required Lenders (or such other Lenders as may be required to give such consent under Section 11.02) have otherwise consented.

(b)Anything contained in any of the Term Loan Documents to the contrary notwithstanding, each Loan Party, the Paying Agent, the Administrative Agent, the Collateral Agent and each Secured Party hereby agree that (i) no Secured Party shall have any right individually to realize upon any of the Collateral or to enforce the Guarantee, it being understood and agreed that all powers, rights and remedies hereunder and under any of the Term Loan Documents may be exercised solely by the Paying Agent, the Administrative Agent or the Collateral Agent, as applicable, for the benefit of the Secured Parties in accordance with the terms hereof and thereof and all powers, rights and remedies under the Security Documents may be exercised solely by the Collateral Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties in accordance with the terms thereof, and (ii) in the event of a foreclosure or similar enforcement action by the Collateral Agent on any of the Collateral pursuant to a public or private sale or other disposition (including pursuant to Section 363(k), Section 1129(b)(2)(a)(ii) or otherwise of the Bankruptcy Code), the Collateral Agent (or any Lender, except with respect to a “credit bid” pursuant to Section 363(k), Section 1129(b)(2)(a)(ii) or otherwise of the Bankruptcy Code) may be the purchaser or licensor of any or all of such Collateral at any such sale or other disposition and the Collateral Agent, as agent for and representative of the Secured Parties (but not any Lender or Lenders in its or their respective individual capacities) shall be entitled, upon instructions from the Required Lenders, for the purpose of bidding and making settlement or payment of the purchase price for all or any portion of the Collateral sold at any such sale or disposition, to use and apply any of the Obligations as a credit on account of the purchase price for any collateral payable by the Collateral Agent at such sale or other disposition.

(c)(i) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any other Term Loan Document, the Paying Agent, the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent, as applicable, shall (without notice to, or vote or consent of, any Lender, or any Affiliate of any Lender that is a party to any Bank Product Agreement) take such actions as shall be required to release (i) its security interest in any Collateral subject to any disposition permitted by the Term Loan Documents, and (ii) to release any Immaterial Subsidiary from its obligations under the Term Loan Documents upon its dissolution as contemplated pursuant to Section 4.03 hereof, to the extent necessary to permit such dissolution.

(ii)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or any other Term Loan Document, when all Secured Obligations (other than Secured Obligations in respect of any Bank Product Agreement and contingent indemnification obligations for which no claim or demand has been made) have been paid in full and all Term Commitments have terminated or expired, upon request of the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Collateral Agent shall (without notice to, or vote or consent of, any Lender, or any affiliate of any Lender that is a party to any Bank Product Agreement) take such actions as shall be required to release its security interest in all Collateral, and to release all guarantee obligations provided for in any Term Loan Document, whether or not on the date of such release there may be outstanding Secured Obligations in respect of Bank Product Agreements. Any such release of guarantee obligations shall be deemed subject to the provision that such guarantee obligations shall be reinstated if after such release any portion of any payment in respect of the Obligations guaranteed thereby shall be rescinded or must otherwise be restored or returned upon the insolvency, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation or reorganization of any Loan Party, or upon or as a result of the appointment of a receiver, intervenor or conservator of, or trustee or similar officer for, the Borrowers or any other Loan Party or any substantial part of its property, or otherwise, all as though such payment had not been made.

(d)The Agents shall not be responsible for or have a duty to ascertain or inquire into any representation or warranty regarding the existence, value or collectability of the Collateral, the existence, priority or perfection of the Collateral Agent’s Lien thereon, or any certificate prepared by any Loan Party in connection therewith, nor shall the Agents be responsible or liable to the Lenders for any failure to monitor or maintain any portion of the Collateral.

Section 10.13 Administrative Agent May File Bankruptcy Disclosure and Proofs of Claim. In case of the pendency of any Insolvency Proceeding relative to any Loan Party, the Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Term Loan shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether the Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on any Loan Party) shall be entitled and empowered (but not obligated) by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:

(a)to file a verified statement pursuant to rule 2019 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure that, in its sole opinion, complies with such rule’s disclosure requirements for entities representing more than one creditor;

(b)to file and prove a claim for the whole amount of the principal and interest owing and unpaid in respect of the Term Loans and all other Obligations that are owing and unpaid and to file such other documents as may be necessary or advisable in order to have the claims of the Lenders and the Agents (including any claim for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent and its respective agents and counsel and all other amounts due the Administrative Agent under Sections 2.03 and 10.03) allowed in such judicial proceeding; and

(c)to collect and receive any monies or other property payable or deliverable on any such claims and to distribute the same;

and any custodian, receiver, assignee, trustee, liquidator, sequestrator or other similar official in any such judicial proceeding is hereby authorized by each Lender to make such payments to the Administrative Agent and, in the event that the Administrative Agent shall consent to the making of such payments directly to the Lenders, to pay to the Administrative Agent any amount due for the reasonable compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative Agent and its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Administrative Agent under this Agreement. To the extent that the payment of any such compensation, expenses, disbursements and advances of the Administrative

Agent, its agents and counsel, and any other amounts due the Administrative Agent under this Agreement out of the estate in any such proceeding, shall be denied for any reason, payment of the same shall be secured by a Lien on, and shall be paid out of, any and all distributions, dividends, money, securities and other properties that the Lenders may be entitled to receive in such proceeding whether in liquidation or under any plan of reorganization or arrangement or otherwise.

Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to authorize the Administrative Agent to authorize or consent to or accept or adopt on behalf of any Lender any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Obligations or the rights of any Lender or to authorize the Administrative Agent to vote in respect of the claim of any Lender in any such proceeding.

Section 10.14 Ship Mortgage Trust . The Mortgage Trustee agrees and declares, and each of the other Secured Parties acknowledges, that, subject to the terms and conditions of this Section 10.14, the Mortgage Trustee holds the Trust Property in trust for the Secured Parties absolutely.
