Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
 
On February 6, 2019, Lexington Realty Trust, or the Trust, entered into a new credit agreement, which we refer to as the Credit Agreement, among the Trust, as borrower, each of the financial institutions initially a signatory thereto together with their assignees pursuant to Section 12.5 therein, and KeyBank National Association, or KeyBank, as agent.
 
The Credit Agreement replaces the Credit Agreement, dated as of September 1, 2015, which we refer to as the Previous Credit Agreement as the same was amended from time to time, among the Trust, as borrower, KeyBank, as agent, and each of the financial institutions initially a signatory thereto together with their assignees pursuant to Section 12.5 therein.
 
The Credit Agreement provides for (1) a new $600.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility, or the Revolver, which refinances and replaces the previously existing $505.0 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility, and (2) an unsecured term loan in a principal amount of $300.0 million that matures on January 11, 2021, or the 2021 Term Loan, which is a continuation of the previously existing $300.0 million unsecured term loan that was scheduled to mature on January 11, 2021. With lender approval, the Trust can increase the size of the Revolver and the 2021 Term Loan by an amount that, when taken together, shall not exceed $1.8 billion.
 
The Revolver matures February 6, 2023, but can be extended until February 6, 2024 at the Trust’s option. The Credit Agreement also provides for a $40.0 million letter of credit sub-facility, a $40.0 million swingline sub-facility and the ability to request bid rate loans.
 
The following is a comparison of the applicable margin over LIBOR under the Credit Agreement and the Previous Credit Agreement, which are determined with respect to the Trust’s senior unsecured long-term debt rating, as follows:

1.55%
1.45%
1.75%
1.65%
 
The Trust may prepay any outstanding borrowings under the Credit Agreement without any premium or penalty. In addition, the Trust is required to prepay all borrowings under the Revolver to the extent such borrowings are in excess of the amount the Trust has the ability to borrow under the Revolver.
 





The Credit Agreement contains representations, financial and other affirmative and negative covenants, events of defaults and remedies typical for this type of revolving credit and term loan facility. The principal financial covenants under the Credit Agreement (based on defined terms in the Credit Agreement) are:
 
(1) the Trust’s Total Indebtedness may not exceed 60% of its Capitalized Value (which is calculated based on a capitalization rate of 7.25%, which was 7.5% under the Previous Credit Agreement);
 
(2) the Trust’s Adjusted EBITDA for the period of two consecutive fiscal quarters most recently ending may not be less than 150% of the Trust’s Fixed Charges for such period;
 
(3) the Trust’s Unsecured Indebtedness shall not be greater than 60% of Unencumbered Property Value except in connection with a material acquisition the percentage is increased to 65% for a specified period of time;
 
(4) the Trust’s Secured Indebtedness may not exceed 40% of the Trust’s Capitalized Value (which was 45% under the Previous Credit Agreement); and
 
(5) the Trust’s Unencumbered NOI shall not be less than 200% of the Trust’s Unsecured Debt Service.
 
The Trust currently expects to use the proceeds under the Revolver for general working capital, including to fund new investments. A copy of the Credit Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated herein by reference. The foregoing description of the Credit Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Credit Agreement.
 
Item 1.02. Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement
 
On February 6, 2019, the Trust entered into the Credit Agreement described in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, which we refer to as this Current Report. The Credit Agreement replaces the Previous Credit Agreement, which was terminated effective February 6, 2019. The material terms and conditions pertaining to the Credit Agreement are set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report and to the extent required by Item 1.02 of Form 8-K, the information contained in (or incorporated by reference into) Items 1.01 and 2.03 of this Current Report is hereby incorporated by reference into this Item 1.02.
 
 Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

Each Bid Rate Quote Request shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit N and shall specify as to each Bid Rate Borrowing all of the following:

(i)    the proposed date of such Bid Rate Borrowing, which shall be a Business Day;

(ii)    the aggregate amount of such Bid Rate Borrowing which shall be in a minimum amount of $10,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess thereof which shall not cause any of the limits specified in Section 2.16. to be violated;

(iii)    whether the Bid Rate Quote Request is for LIBOR Margin Loans or Absolute Rate Loans; and

(iv)    the duration of the Interest Period applicable thereto, which shall not extend beyond the Revolving Termination Date.

The Borrower shall not deliver any Bid Rate Quote Request within five Business Days of the giving of any other Bid Rate Quote Request and the Borrower shall not deliver more than two Bid Rate Quote Requests in any calendar month.

(c)    Bid Rate Quotes.

(i)    Each Revolving Lender may submit one or more Bid Rate Quotes, each containing an offer to make a Bid Rate Loan in response to any Bid Rate Quote Request; provided that, if the Borrower request under Section 2.3.(b) specified more than one Interest Period, such Revolving Lender may make a single submission containing only one Bid Rate Quote for each such Interest Period. Each Bid Rate Quote must be submitted to the Agent not later than 10:30 a.m. (x) on the proposed date of borrowing, in the case of an Absolute Rate Auction and (y) on the date three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed date of borrowing, in the case of a LIBOR Auction, and in either case the Agent shall disregard any Bid Rate Quote received after such time; provided that the Revolving Lender then acting as the Agent may submit a Bid Rate Quote only if it notifies the Borrower of the terms of the offer contained therein not later than 30 minutes prior to the latest time by which the Revolving Lenders must submit applicable Bid Rate Quotes. Any Bid Rate Quote so made shall be irrevocable except with the consent of the Agent given at the request of the Borrower. Such Bid Rate Loans may be funded by a Revolving Lender’s Designated Lender (if any) as provided in Section 12.5.(g); however, such Revolving Lender shall not be required to specify in its Bid Rate Quote whether such Bid Rate Loan will be funded by such Designated Lender.

35



(ii)    Each Bid Rate Quote shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit O and shall specify:

(A)    the proposed date of borrowing and the Interest Period therefor;

(B)    the principal amount of the Bid Rate Loan for which each such offer is being made; provided that the aggregate principal amount of all Bid Rate Loans for which a Revolving Lender submits Bid Rate Quotes (x) may be greater or less than the Revolving Loan Commitment of such Revolving Lender but (y) shall not exceed the principal amount of the Bid Rate Borrowing for a particular Interest Period for which offers were requested; provided further that any Bid Rate Quote shall be in a minimum amount of $5,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess thereof;

(C)    in the case of an Absolute Rate Auction, the rate of interest per annum (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the nearest 1/1,000th of 1%) offered for each such Absolute Rate Loan (the “Absolute Rate”);

(D)    in the case of a LIBOR Auction, the margin above or below applicable LIBOR (the “LIBOR Margin”) offered for each such LIBOR Margin Loan, expressed as a percentage (rounded upwards, if necessary, to the nearest 1/1,000th of 1%) to be added to (or subtracted from) the applicable LIBOR; and

(E)    the identity of the quoting Revolving Lender.

Unless otherwise agreed by the Agent and the Borrower, no Bid Rate Quote shall contain qualifying, conditional or similar language or propose terms other than or in addition to those set forth in the applicable Bid Rate Quote Request and, in particular, no Bid Rate Quote may be conditioned upon acceptance by the Borrower of all (or some specified minimum) of the principal amount of the Bid Rate Loan for which such Bid Rate Quote is being made.

(d)    Notification by Agent. The Agent shall, as promptly as practicable after the Bid Rate Quotes are submitted (but in any event not later than 11:30 a.m. (x) on the proposed date of borrowing, in the case of an Absolute Rate Auction or (y) on the date three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed date of borrowing, in the case of a LIBOR Auction), notify the Borrower of the terms (i) of any Bid Rate Quote submitted by a Revolving Lender that is in accordance with Section 2.3.(c) and (ii) of any Bid Rate Quote that amends, modifies or is otherwise inconsistent with a previous Bid Rate Quote submitted by such Revolving Lender with respect to the same Bid Rate Quote Request. Any such subsequent Bid Rate Quote shall be disregarded by the Agent unless such subsequent Bid Rate Quote is submitted solely to correct a manifest error in such former Bid Rate Quote. The Agent’s notice to the Borrower shall specify (A) the aggregate principal amount of the Bid Rate Borrowing for which offers have been received and (B) the principal amounts and Absolute Rates or LIBOR Margins, as applicable, so offered by each Revolving Lender (identifying the Revolving Lender that made such Bid Rate Quote).

(e)    Acceptance by Borrower.

(i)    Not later than 12:30 p.m. (x) on the proposed date of borrowing, in the case of an Absolute Rate Auction and (y) on the date three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed date of borrowing, in the case of a LIBOR Auction, the Borrower shall notify the Agent of the Borrower’s acceptance or nonacceptance of the Bid Rate Quotes so notified to it pursuant to Section 2.3.(d), which notice shall be in the form of Exhibit P. In the case of acceptance, such notice shall specify

36



the aggregate principal amount of Bid Rate Quotes for each Interest Period that are accepted. The failure of the Borrower to give such notice by such time shall constitute nonacceptance. The Borrower may accept any Bid Rate Quote in whole or in part; provided that:
(A)    the aggregate principal amount of each Bid Rate Borrowing may not exceed the applicable amount set forth in the related Bid Rate Quote Request;

(B)    the aggregate principal amount of each Bid Rate Borrowing shall comply with the provisions of Section 2.3.(b)(ii) and together with all other Bid Rate Loans then outstanding shall not cause the limits specified in Section 2.16. to be violated;

(C)    acceptance of Bid Rate Quotes may be made only in ascending order of Absolute Rates or LIBOR Margins, as applicable, in each case beginning with the lowest rate so offered;

(D)    any acceptance in part by the Borrower shall be in a minimum amount of $5,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess thereof; and

(E)    the Borrower may not accept any Bid Rate Quote that fails to comply with Section 2.3.(c) or otherwise fails to comply with the requirements of this Agreement.

(ii)    If Bid Rate Quotes are made by two or more Revolving Lenders with the same Absolute Rates or LIBOR Margins, as applicable, for a greater aggregate principal amount than the amount in respect of which Bid Rate Quotes are permitted to be accepted for the related Interest Period, the principal amount of Bid Rate Loans in respect of which such Bid Rate Quotes are accepted shall be allocated by the Agent among such Revolving Lenders in proportion to the aggregate principal amount of such Bid Rate Quotes. Determinations by the Agent of the amounts of Bid Rate Loans shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error.

(f)    Obligation to Make Bid Rate Loans. The Agent shall promptly (and in any event not later than (x) 1:30 p.m. on the proposed date of borrowing of Absolute Rate Loans and (y) on the date three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed date of borrowing of LIBOR Margin Loans) notify each Revolving Lender as to whose Bid Rate Quote has been accepted and the amount and rate thereof. A Revolving Lender who is notified that it has been selected to make a Bid Rate Loan may designate its Designated Lender (if any) to fund such Bid Rate Loan on its behalf, as described in Section 12.5.(g). Any Designated Lender which funds a Bid Rate Loan shall on and after the time of such funding become the obligee in respect of such Bid Rate Loan and be entitled to receive payment thereof when due. No Revolving Lender shall be relieved of its obligation to fund a Bid Rate Loan, and no Designated Lender shall assume such obligation, prior to the time the applicable Bid Rate Loan is funded. Any Revolving Lender whose offer to make any Bid Rate Loan has been accepted shall, not later than 2:30 p.m. on the date specified for the making of such Loan, make the amount of such Loan available to the Agent at its Principal Office in immediately available funds, for the account of the Borrower. The amount so received by the Agent shall, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, be made available to the Borrower not later than 3:30 p.m. on such date by depositing the same, in immediately available funds, in an account of the Borrower designated by the Borrower.
(g)    No Effect on Revolving Loan Commitment. Except for the purpose and to the extent expressly stated in Section 2.13. and 2.16., the amount of any Bid Rate Loan made by any Revolving Lender shall not constitute a utilization of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment.

37



Section 2.4.    Swingline Loans.
(a)    Swingline Loans. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, during the period from the Effective Date to but excluding the Revolving Termination Date, the Swingline Lender agrees to make Swingline Loans to the Borrower in an aggregate principal amount at any one time outstanding up to, but not exceeding, the amount of the Swingline Commitment. If at any time the aggregate principal amount of the Swingline Loans outstanding at such time exceeds the Swingline Commitment in effect at such time, the Borrower shall pay the Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender the amount of such excess within one Business Day of demand therefor. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Borrower may borrow, repay and reborrow Swingline Loans hereunder.
(b)    Procedure for Borrowing Swingline Loans. The Borrower shall give the Agent and the Swingline Lender notice pursuant to a Notice of Swingline Borrowing or telephonic notice of each borrowing of a Swingline Loan. Each Notice of Swingline Borrowing shall be delivered to the Swingline Lender no later than 3:00 p.m. on the proposed date of such borrowing. Any such notice given telephonically shall include all information to be specified in a written Notice of Swingline Borrowing and shall be promptly confirmed in writing by the Borrower pursuant to a Notice of Swingline Borrowing sent to the Swingline Lender by telecopy on the same day of the giving of such telephonic notice. On the date of the requested Swingline Loan and subject to satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Article V. for such borrowing, the Swingline Lender will make the proceeds of such Swingline Loan available to the Borrower in Dollars, in immediately available funds, at the account specified by the Borrower in the Notice of Swingline Borrowing not later than 4:00 p.m. on such date.
(c)    Interest. Swingline Loans shall bear interest at a per annum rate equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans. Interest payable on Swingline Loans is solely for the account of the Swingline Lender. All accrued and unpaid interest on Swingline Loans shall be payable on the dates and in the manner provided in Section 2.6. with respect to interest on Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans (except as the Swingline Lender and the Borrower may otherwise agree in writing in connection with any particular Swingline Loan).
(d)    Swingline Loan Amounts, Etc. Each Swingline Loan shall be in the minimum amount of $1,000,000 and integral multiples of $500,000 or such other minimum amounts agreed to by the Swingline Lender and the Borrower. Any voluntary prepayment of a Swingline Loan must be in integral multiples of $100,000 or the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Swingline Loans (or such other minimum amounts upon which the Swingline Lender and the Borrower may agree) and in connection with any such prepayment, the Borrower must give the Swingline Lender prior written notice thereof no later than 10:00 a.m. on the date of such prepayment. The Swingline Loans shall, in addition to this Agreement, be evidenced by the Swingline Note.
(e)    Repayment and Participations of Swingline Loans. The Borrower agrees to repay each Swingline Loan within one Business Day of demand therefor by the Swingline Lender and in any event, within 5 Business Days after the date such Swingline Loan was made. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower shall repay the entire outstanding principal amount of, and all accrued but unpaid interest on, the Swingline Loans on the Revolving Termination Date (or such earlier date as the Swingline Lender and the Borrower may agree in writing). In lieu of demanding repayment of any outstanding Swingline Loan from the Borrower and if the Borrower has not already submitted a timely Notice of Borrowing for the purpose of repaying such Swingline Loan, the Swingline Lender may, on behalf of the Borrower (each of which hereby irrevocably directs the Swingline Lender to act on its behalf for such purpose), request a borrowing of Base Rate Loans from the Revolving Lenders in an amount equal to the principal balance of such Swingline Loan. The amount limitations of Section 3.5.(a) shall not apply to any borrowing of Base Rate Loans made

38



pursuant to this subsection. The Swingline Lender shall give notice to the Agent of any such borrowing of Base Rate Loans not later than 12:00 noon on the proposed date of such borrowing, and the Agent shall give prompt notice of such borrowing to the Revolving Lenders. No later than 2:00 p.m. on such date, each Revolving Lender will make available to the Agent at the Principal Office for the account of the Swingline Lender in immediately available funds, the proceeds of the Base Rate Loan to be made by such Revolving Lender, and, to the extent of such Base Rate Loan, such Revolving Lender’s participation in the Swingline Loan so repaid shall be deemed to be funded by the Base Rate Loan. The Agent shall pay the proceeds of such Base Rate Loans to the Swingline Lender, which shall apply such proceeds to repay such Swingline Loan. At the time each Swingline Loan is made, each Revolving Lender shall automatically (and without any further notice or action) be deemed to have purchased from the Swingline Lender, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation to the extent of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage in such Swingline Loan. If the Revolving Lenders are prohibited from making Loans required to be made under this subsection for any reason, including without limitation, the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default described in Section 10.1.(f) or 10.1.(g), upon notice from the Agent or the Swingline Lender, each Revolving Lender severally agrees to pay to the Agent for the account of the Swingline Lender in respect of such participation the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage of each outstanding Swingline Loan. If such amount is not in fact made available to the Agent by any Revolving Lender, the Swingline Lender shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Revolving Lender, together with accrued interest thereon for each day from the date of demand thereof, at the Federal Funds Rate. If such Revolving Lender does not pay such amount forthwith upon demand therefor by the Agent or the Swingline Lender, and until such time as such Revolving Lender makes the required payment, the Swingline Lender shall be deemed to continue to have outstanding Swingline Loans in the amount of such unpaid participation obligation for all purposes of the Loan Documents (other than those provisions requiring the other Revolving Lenders to purchase a participation therein). Further, such Revolving Lender shall be deemed to have assigned any and all payments made of principal and interest on its Revolving Loans, and any other amounts due to it hereunder, to the Swingline Lender to fund Swingline Loans in the amount of the participation in Swingline Loans that such Revolving Lender failed to purchase pursuant to this Section until such amount has been purchased (as a result of such assignment or otherwise). A Revolving Lender’s obligation to make payments in respect of a participation in a Swingline Loan shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance whatsoever, including, without limitation, (i) any claim of setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Revolving Lender or any other Person may have or claim against the Agent, the Swingline Lender or any other Person whatsoever, (ii) the occurrence or continuation of a Default or Event of Default (including, without limitation, any of the Defaults or Events of Default described in Sections 10.1.(f) or 10.1.(g)) or the termination of any Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment, (iii) the existence (or alleged existence) of an event or condition which has had or could have a Material Adverse Effect, (iv) any breach of any Loan Document by the Agent, any Lender or the Borrower or (v) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.
Section 2.5.    Letters of Credit.
(a)    Letters of Credit. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Agent, on behalf of the Revolving Lenders, agrees to issue for the account of the Borrower during the period from and including the Effective Date to, but excluding, the date 30 days prior to the Revolving Termination Date one or more letters of credit (each a “Letter of Credit”) up to a maximum aggregate Stated Amount at any one time outstanding not to exceed the L/C Commitment Amount; provided, that in the event that the Agent’s ratings assigned by a Rating Agency are below a contractual threshold binding on the Borrower or any Subsidiary, then a Revolving Lender meeting or exceeding such threshold may, upon the request of the Borrower, issue a Letter of Credit requested by the Borrower and such Revolving Lender shall be entitled

39



to the various benefits of the Agent under this Agreement as issuer of such Letter of Credit and each other Revolving Lender shall have the obligations set forth herein to such Revolving Lender with respect to such Letter of Credit. For the purposes of this Agreement, the Existing LC shall be deemed issued pursuant to the terms of this Agreement and shall be considered a Letter of Credit under this Agreement, KeyBank shall be entitled to the various benefits of the Agent under this Agreement as issuer of the Existing LC and each Revolving Lender shall have the obligations set forth herein to KeyBank with respect to the Existing LC.
(b)    Terms of Letters of Credit. At the time of issuance, renewal or increase, the amount, form, terms and conditions of each Letter of Credit, and of any drafts or acceptances thereunder, shall be subject to the reasonable approval by the Agent and the Borrower. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event may the expiration date of any Letter of Credit extend beyond the earlier of (i) the date one year from its date of issuance or (ii) the date that is 30 days prior to the Revolving Termination Date; provided, however, a Letter of Credit may contain a provision providing for the automatic extension of the expiration date in the absence of a notice of non-renewal from the Agent but in no event shall any such provision permit the extension of the expiration date of such Letter of Credit to a date later than 30 days prior to the Revolving Termination Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Letter of Credit may, as a result of its express terms or as the result of the effect of an automatic extension provision, have an expiration date of not more than one year beyond the Revolving Termination Date (any such Letter of Credit being referred to as an “Extended Letter of Credit”), so long as the Borrower delivers to the Agent for its benefit and the benefit of the Revolving Lenders no later than 30 days prior to the Revolving Termination Date, Cash Collateral for such Letter of Credit for deposit into the Collateral Account in an amount equal to the Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit; provided, that the obligations of the Borrower under this Section in respect of such Extended Letters of Credit shall survive the termination of this Agreement and shall remain in effect until no such Extended Letters of Credit remain outstanding. If the Borrower fails to provide Cash Collateral with respect to any Extended Letter of Credit by the date 30 days prior to the Revolving Termination Date, such failure shall be treated as a drawing under such Extended Letter of Credit (in an amount equal to the maximum Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit), which shall be reimbursed (or participations therein funded) by the Revolving Lenders in accordance with the immediately following subsections (i) and (j), with the proceeds being utilized to provide Cash Collateral for such Letter of Credit.
(c)    Requests for Issuance of Letters of Credit. The Borrower shall give the Agent written notice (or telephonic notice promptly confirmed in writing) at least 5 Business Days prior to the requested date of issuance of a Letter of Credit, such notice to describe in reasonable detail the proposed terms of such Letter of Credit and the nature of the transactions or obligations proposed to be supported by such Letter of Credit, and in any event shall set forth with respect to such Letter of Credit the proposed (i) Stated Amount, (ii) beneficiary, and (iii) expiration date. The Borrower shall also execute and deliver such customary letter of credit application forms as requested from time to time by the Agent. Provided the Borrower has given the notice prescribed by the first sentence of this subsection and subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, including the satisfaction of any applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article V, the Agent shall issue the requested Letter of Credit on the requested date of issuance for the benefit of the stipulated beneficiary. Upon the written request of the Borrower, the Agent shall deliver to the Borrower a copy of each issued Letter of Credit within a reasonable time after the date of issuance thereof. To the extent any term of a Letter of Credit Document is inconsistent with a term of any Loan Document, the term of such Loan Document shall control.
(d)    Reimbursement Obligations. Upon receipt by the Agent from the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit of any demand for payment under such Letter of Credit, the Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower of the amount to be paid by the Agent as a result of such demand and the date on which payment is to be made by the Agent to such beneficiary in respect of such demand; provided, however, the Agent’s failure to give, or delay in giving, such notice shall not discharge the Borrower in any respect from the applicable

40



Reimbursement Obligation. The Borrower hereby unconditionally and irrevocably agrees to pay and reimburse the Agent for the amount of each demand for payment under such Letter of Credit on or prior to the date on which payment is to be made by the Agent to the beneficiary thereunder, without presentment, demand, protest or other formalities of any kind (other than notice as provided in this subsection). Upon receipt by the Agent of any payment in respect of any Reimbursement Obligation, the Agent shall promptly pay to each Revolving Lender that has acquired a participation therein under the second sentence of Section 2.5.(i) such Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage of such payment.
(e)    Manner of Reimbursement. Upon its receipt of a notice referred to in the immediately preceding subsection (d), the Borrower shall advise the Agent whether or not the Borrower intends to borrow hereunder to finance its obligation to reimburse the Agent for the amount of the related demand for payment and, if they do, the Borrower shall submit a timely request for such borrowing as provided in the applicable provisions of this Agreement. If the Borrower fails to so advise the Agent, or if the Borrower fails to reimburse the Agent for a demand for payment under a Letter of Credit by the date of such payment, then (i) if the applicable conditions contained in Article V would permit the making of Revolving Loans, the Borrower shall be deemed to have requested a borrowing of Revolving Loans (which shall be Base Rate Loans) in an amount equal to the unpaid Reimbursement Obligation and the Agent shall give each Revolving Lender prompt notice of the amount of the Revolving Loan to be made available to the Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. or (ii) if such conditions would not permit the making of Revolving Loans, the provisions of subsection (j) of this Section shall apply. The limitations of Section 3.5(a) shall not apply to any borrowing of Base Rate Loans under this subsection.
(f)    Effect of Letters of Credit on Revolving Loan Commitments. Upon the issuance by the Agent of any Letter of Credit and until such Letter of Credit shall have expired or been terminated, the Revolving Loan Commitment of each Revolving Lender shall be deemed to be utilized for all purposes of this Agreement in an amount equal to the product of (i) such Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage and (ii) the sum of (A) the Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit plus (B) any related Reimbursement Obligations then outstanding.
(g)    Agent’s Duties Regarding Letters of Credit; Unconditional Nature of Reimbursement Obligations. In examining documents presented in connection with drawings under Letters of Credit and making payments under Letters of Credit against such documents, the Agent shall only be required to use the same standard of care as it uses in connection with examining documents presented in connection with drawings under letters of credit in which it has not sold participations and making payments under such letters of credit. The Borrower assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of the Letters of Credit by, the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, neither the Agent nor any of the Lenders shall be responsible for, and the Borrower’s obligations in respect of the Letters of Credit shall not be affected in any manner by, (i) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effects of any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for and issuance of or any drawing honored under any Letter of Credit even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged; (ii) the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any Letter of Credit, or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason; (iii) failure of the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit to comply fully with conditions required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit; (iv) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telex, telecopy or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (v) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (vi) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any Letter of Credit, or of the proceeds thereof; (vii) the misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of any drawing under any Letter of Credit;

41



or (viii) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of the Agent or the Lenders. None of the above shall affect, impair or prevent the vesting of any of the Agent’s or any Lender’s rights or powers hereunder. Any action taken or omitted to be taken by the Agent under or in connection with any Letter of Credit, if taken or omitted in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, non-appealable judgment), shall not create against the Agent or any Lender any liability to the Borrower or any Lender. In this regard, the obligation of the Borrower to reimburse the Agent for any drawing made under any Letter of Credit, and to repay any Revolving Loan made pursuant to the second sentence of the immediately preceding subsection (e), shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and any other applicable Letter of Credit Document under all circumstances whatsoever, including without limitation, the following circumstances: (A) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit Document or any term or provisions therein; (B) any amendment or waiver of or any consent to departure from all or any of the Letter of Credit Documents; (C) the existence of any claim, setoff, defense or other right which the Borrower may have at any time against the Agent, any Lender, any beneficiary of a Letter of Credit or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or in the Letter of Credit Documents or any unrelated transaction; (D) any breach of contract or dispute between the Borrower, the Agent, any Lender or any other Person; (E) any demand, statement or any other document presented under a Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein or made in connection therewith being untrue or inaccurate in any respect whatsoever; (F) any non-application or misapplication by the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; (G) payment by the Agent under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate which does not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; and (H) any other act, omission to act, delay or circumstance whatsoever that might, but for the provisions of this Section, constitute a legal or equitable defense to or discharge of the Borrower’s Reimbursement Obligations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section or Section 12.9., but not in limitation of the Borrower’s unconditional obligation to reimburse the Agent for any drawing made under a Letter of Credit as provided in this Section and to repay any Revolving Loan made pursuant to the second sentence of the immediately preceding subsection (e), the Borrower shall have no obligation to indemnify the Agent or any Lender in respect of any liability incurred by the Agent or such Lender arising solely out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Agent or such Lender in respect of a Letter of Credit as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, non-appealable judgment. Except as otherwise provided in this Section, nothing in this Section shall affect any rights the Borrower may have with respect to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Agent or any Lender with respect to any Letter of Credit.
(h)    Amendments, Etc. The issuance by the Agent of any amendment, supplement or other modification to any Letter of Credit shall be subject to the same conditions applicable under this Agreement to the issuance of new Letters of Credit (including, without limitation, that the request therefor be made through the Agent), and no such amendment, supplement or other modification shall be issued unless either (i) the respective Letter of Credit affected thereby would have complied with such conditions had it originally been issued hereunder in such amended, supplemented or modified form or (ii) the Requisite Class Lenders of the Class of Lenders with Revolving Commitments and/or holding Revolving Loans (or each Revolving Lender directly affected thereby, if required by Section 12.6.) shall have consented thereto. In connection with any such amendment, supplement or other modification, the Borrower shall pay the Fees, if any, payable under the last sentence of Section 3.6(b).
(i)    Revolving Lenders’ Participation in Letters of Credit. Immediately upon the issuance by the Agent of any Letter of Credit (or in the case of the Existing LC, upon the Effective Date) each Revolving Lender shall be deemed to have irrevocably and unconditionally purchased and received from the Agent, without recourse or warranty, an undivided interest and participation to the extent of such Revolving Lender’s

42



Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage of the liability of the Agent with respect to such Letter of Credit, and each Revolving Lender thereby shall absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably assume, as primary obligor and not as surety, and shall be unconditionally obligated to the Agent to pay and discharge when due, such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage of the Agent’s liability under such Letter of Credit. In addition, upon the making of each payment by a Revolving Lender to the Agent in respect of any Letter of Credit pursuant to the immediately following subsection (j), such Revolving Lender shall, automatically and without any further action on the part of the Agent or such Revolving Lender, acquire (i) a participation in an amount equal to such payment in the Reimbursement Obligation owing to the Agent by the Borrower in respect of such Letter of Credit and (ii) a participation in a percentage equal to such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage in any interest or other amounts payable by the Borrower in respect of such Reimbursement Obligation (other than the Fees payable solely to the Agent pursuant to Section 3.6.(b)). Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event of a default in any Revolving Lender's obligations to fund under this Agreement exists or any Revolving Lender is at such time a Defaulting Lender, the Agent shall have the right, but not the obligation, to refuse to issue any Letter of Credit unless the Agent has entered into satisfactory arrangements with the Borrower and/or such Defaulting Lender to eliminate the Agent’s risk with respect to such Defaulting Lender.
(j)    Payment Obligation of Revolving Lenders. Each Revolving Lender severally agrees to pay to the Agent on demand in immediately available funds in Dollars the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage of each drawing paid by the Agent under each Letter of Credit to the extent such amount is not reimbursed by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.5.(d); provided, however, that in respect of any drawing under any Letter of Credit, the maximum amount that any Revolving Lender shall be required to fund, whether as a Revolving Loan or as a participation, shall not exceed such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage of such drawing except as otherwise provided in Section 3.11(a)(iv). If the notice referenced in the second sentence of Section 2.5(e) is received by a Revolving Lender not later than 11:00 a.m., then such Revolving Lender shall make such payment available to the Agent not later than 2:00 p.m. on the date of demand therefor; otherwise, such payment shall be made available to the Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. on the next succeeding Business Day. The obligation of each Revolving Lender to make such payments to the Agent under this subsection, and the Agent’s right to receive the same, shall be absolute, irrevocable and unconditional and shall not be affected in any way by any circumstance whatsoever, including without limitation, (i) the failure of any other Revolving Lender to make its payment under this subsection, (ii) the financial condition of the Borrower or any other Loan Party, (iii) the existence of any Default or Event of Default, including any Event of Default described in Section 10.1.(f) or 10.1.(g), (iv) the termination of the Revolving Commitments, or (v) the delivery of Cash Collateral in respect of any Extended Letter of Credit. Each such payment to the Agent shall be made without any offset, abatement, withholding or deduction whatsoever.
(k)    Information to Revolving Lenders. The Agent shall periodically deliver to the Revolving Lenders information setting forth the Stated Amount of all outstanding Letters of Credit. Other than as set forth in this subsection, the Agent shall have no duty to notify the Revolving Lenders regarding the issuance or other matters regarding Letters of Credit issued hereunder. The failure of the Agent to perform its requirements under this subsection shall not relieve any Revolving Lender from its obligations under Section 2.5.(j).
(l)    Extended Letters of Credit. Each Revolving Lender confirms that its obligations under the immediately preceding subsections (i) and (j) shall be reinstated in full and apply if the delivery of any Cash Collateral in respect of an Extended Letter of Credit is subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party, in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law or otherwise.

Section 2.6.    Rates and Payment of Interest on Loans.
(a)    Rates. The Borrower promises to pay to the Agent for the account of each Lender interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Loan made by such Lender for the period from and including the date of the making of such Loan to but excluding the date such Loan shall be paid in full, at the following per annum rates:
(i)    in the case of a Revolving Loan, during such periods as such Revolving Loan is (x) a Base Rate Loan, at the Base Rate (as in effect from time to time) plus the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans that are Base Rate Loans and (y) a LIBOR Loan, at LIBOR for such Revolving Loan for the Interest Period therefor, plus the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans that are LIBOR Loans;
(ii)    in the case of a Term Loan, during such periods as such Term Loan is (x) a Base Rate Loan, at the Base Rate (as in effect from time to time) plus the Applicable Margin for Term Loans that are Base Rate Loans and (y) a LIBOR Loan, at LIBOR for such Term Loan for the Interest Period therefor, plus the Applicable Margin for Term Loans that are LIBOR Loans;
(iii)    if such Loan is an Absolute Rate Loan, at the Absolute Rate for such Loan for the Interest Period therefor quoted by the Lender making such Loan in accordance with Section 2.3.; and
(iv)    if such Loan is a LIBOR Margin Loan, at LIBOR for such Loan for the Interest Period therefor plus (or minus) the LIBOR Margin quoted by the Lender making such Loan in accordance with Section 2.3.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, (x) while an Event of Default under Section 10.1.(a), Section 10.1.(b), Section 10.1.(f) or Section 10.1.(g) shall exist or (y) upon the vote of the Requisite Lenders in the case of the existence of any other Event of Default not described in the preceding clause (x), in each case, the Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the account of each Class of Lenders, the Swingline Lender, and the Agent, as the issuer of Letters of Credit, as the case may be, interest at the Post-Default Rate on the outstanding principal amount of each Class of Loans made by such Lender, on all Reimbursement Obligations, respectively, and on any other amount payable by the Borrower hereunder or under the Notes held by such Lender to or for the account of such Lender (including without limitation, accrued but unpaid interest to the extent permitted under Applicable Law).
(b)    Payment of Interest. Accrued and unpaid interest on each Loan shall be payable monthly in arrears on the first day of each calendar month, provided if such day is not a Business Day, interest shall be due on the next succeeding Business Day. Interest payable at the Post-Default Rate shall be payable from time to time on demand. Promptly after the determination of any interest rate provided for herein or any change therein, the Agent shall give notice thereof to the Lenders to which such interest is payable and to the Borrower. All determinations by the Agent of an interest rate hereunder shall be conclusive and binding on the Lenders and the Borrower for all purposes, absent manifest error.
(c)    Borrower Information Used to Determine Applicable Interest Rates. The parties understand that the applicable interest rate for the Obligations and certain fees set forth herein may be determined and/or adjusted from time to time based upon certain financial ratios and/or other information to be provided or certified to the Lenders by the Borrower (the “Borrower Information”). If it is subsequently determined that any such Borrower Information was incorrect (for whatever reason, including without

44



limitation because of a subsequent restatement of earnings by the Borrower) at the time it was delivered to the Agent, and if the applicable interest rate or fees calculated for any period were lower than they should have been had the correct information been timely provided, then, such interest rate and such fees for such period shall be automatically recalculated using correct Borrower Information. The Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower in writing of any additional interest and fees due because of such recalculation, and the Borrower shall pay such additional interest or fees due to the Agent, for the account of each Lender, within five (5) Business Days of receipt of such written notice. Any recalculation of interest or fees required by this provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement, and this provision shall not in any way limit any of the Agent’s or any Lender’s other rights under this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
Section 2.7.    Number of Interest Periods.
There may be no more than (a) six (6) different Interest Periods for Revolving Loans that are LIBOR Loans outstanding at the same time, (b) six (6) different Interest Periods for Term Loans that are LIBOR Loans outstanding at the same time, and (c) six (6) different Interest Periods for Bid Rate Loans outstanding at the same time.
Section 2.8.    Repayment of Loans.
(a)    Revolving Credit Loans. The Borrower shall repay the entire outstanding principal amount of, and all accrued but unpaid interest on, the Revolving Loans on the Revolving Termination Date (or such earlier date on which the Revolving Loan Commitments are terminated in full in accordance with this Agreement).
(b)    Term Loans. The Borrower shall repay the entire outstanding principal amount of, and all accrued but unpaid interest on the Term Loans on the Termination Date for the Term Loans (or such earlier date on which the Term Loans become due or are declared due in accordance with this Agreement).
(c)    Bid Rate Loans. The Borrower shall repay the entire outstanding principal amount of, and all accrued interest on, each Bid Rate Loan on the last day of the Interest Period of such Bid Rate Loan.
Section 2.9.    Prepayments.
(a)    Optional. Subject to Section 4.4., the Borrower may prepay any Loan (other than a Bid Rate Loan), in whole or in part, at any time without premium or penalty, provided that such prepayments shall be applied in such a manner as to limit, to the extent possible, the amounts due under Section 4.4. A Bid Rate Loan may be prepaid with the prior written consent of the Revolving Lender (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) holding such Bid Rate Loan. The Borrower shall give the Agent at least one Business Day’s prior written notice of the prepayment of any Loan.
(b)    Mandatory.
(i)    Revolving Loan Commitment Overadvance. If at any time the aggregate amount of all outstanding Revolving Loans, Swingline Loans and Bid Rate Loans, together with the aggregate amount of all Letter of Credit Liabilities exceeds the aggregate amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments in effect at such time, the Borrower shall within two (2) Business Days after demand pay to the Agent for the account of the Revolving Lenders the amount of such excess.

45



(ii)    Bid Rate Facility Overadvance. If at any time the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Bid Rate Loans exceeds one‑half of the aggregate amount of all Revolving Loan Commitments at such time, then the Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the accounts of the applicable Revolving Lenders holding Bid Rate Loans the amount of such excess within one (1) Business Day of demand therefor.
(iii)    Application of Mandatory Prepayments. Amounts paid under the preceding subsection (b)(i) shall be applied to pay all amounts of principal outstanding on the applicable Revolving Loans pro rata in accordance with Section 3.2. If the Borrower is required to pay any outstanding LIBOR Loans by reason of this Section prior to the end of the applicable Interest Period therefor, the Borrower shall pay all amounts due under Section 4.4., provided that such prepayments shall be applied in such a manner as to limit, to the extent possible, the amounts due under Section 4.4.
Section 2.10.    Continuation.
So long as no Default or Event of Default shall exist, the Borrower may on any Business Day, with respect to any LIBOR Loan, elect to maintain such LIBOR Loan or any portion thereof as a LIBOR Loan by selecting a new Interest Period for such LIBOR Loan. Each new Interest Period selected under this Section shall commence on the last day of the immediately preceding Interest Period. Each selection of a new Interest Period shall be made by the Borrower giving to the Agent a Notice of Continuation not later than 11:00 a.m. on the third Business Day prior to the date of any such Continuation. Such notice by the Borrower of a Continuation shall be by telephone or telecopy, confirmed immediately in writing if by telephone, in the form of a Notice of Continuation, specifying (a) the proposed date of such Continuation, (b) the LIBOR Loans, Class and portions thereof subject to such Continuation, (c) the duration of the selected Interest Period, all of which of the foregoing (a), (b) and (c) shall be specified in such manner as is necessary to comply with all limitations on Loans outstanding hereunder, and (d) the amount of such LIBOR Loan, or portion thereof, that the Borrower has elected to have subject to a Derivatives Contract that provides a hedge against interest rate risk and the Derivatives Contract(s) to which such amount is subject. Each Notice of Continuation shall be irrevocable by and binding on the Borrower once given. Promptly after receipt of a Notice of Continuation, the Agent shall notify each Lender holding Loans being Continued by telecopy, or other similar form of transmission, of the proposed Continuation. If the Borrower shall fail to select in a timely manner a new Interest Period for any LIBOR Loan in accordance with this Section, or if a Default or Event of Default shall exist, such Loan will automatically, on the last day of the current Interest Period therefor, Convert into a Base Rate Loan notwithstanding the first sentence of Section 2.11. or the Borrower’s failure to comply with any of the terms of such Section.
Section 2.11.    Conversion.
The Borrower may on any Business Day, upon the Borrower’s giving of a Notice of Conversion to the Agent, Convert all or a portion of a Loan of one Type into a Loan of another Type but of the same Class; provided, however, a Base Rate Loan may not be Converted to a LIBOR Loan if a Default or Event of Default shall exist. Any Conversion of a LIBOR Loan of a Class into a Base Rate Loan of such Class shall be made on, and only on, the last day of an Interest Period for such LIBOR Loan and, upon Conversion of a Base Rate Loan into a LIBOR Loan, the Borrower shall pay accrued interest to the date of Conversion on the principal amount so Converted. Each such Notice of Conversion shall be given not later than 11:00 a.m. on the Business Day prior to the date of any proposed Conversion into Base Rate Loans and on the third Business Day prior to the date of any proposed Conversion into LIBOR Loans. Promptly after receipt of a Notice of Conversion, the Agent shall notify each Lender holding Loans being Converted by telecopy, or other similar form of transmission, of the proposed Conversion. Subject to the restrictions specified above, each Notice

46



of Conversion shall be by telephone (confirmed immediately in writing) or telecopy in the form of a Notice of Conversion specifying (a) the requested date of such Conversion, (b) the Type and Class of Loan to be Converted, (c) the portion of such Type of Loan to be Converted, (d) the Type of Loan such Loan is to be Converted into and (e) if such Conversion is into a LIBOR Loan, the requested duration of the Interest Period of such Loan and the amount of such LIBOR Loan, if any, that the Borrower has elected to have subject to a Derivatives Contract that provides a hedge against interest rate risk and the Derivatives Contract(s) to which such amount is subject. Each Notice of Conversion shall be irrevocable by and binding on the Borrower once given.
Section 2.12.    Notes.
(a)    Note. The Loans of a Class made by a Lender shall, in addition to this Agreement, if requested by such Lender, also be evidenced by a promissory note of the Borrower payable to such Lender, or its registered assignee, in a principal amount equal to, in the case of a Revolving Lender, or its registered assignee, the amount of its Revolving Loan Commitment as originally in effect and otherwise duly completed, and in the case of a Term Lender, or its registered assignee, the initial principal amount of its Term Loan, as applicable, at the time of the making or acquisition of such Term Loan as originally in effect and, in each case, otherwise duly completed. The Swingline Loans made by the Swingline Lender to the Borrower shall, in addition to this Agreement, also be evidenced by a Swingline Note payable to the Swingline Lender, or its registered assignee. If requested by a Revolving Lender, the Bid Rate Loans made by such Revolving Lender to the Borrower shall, in addition to this Agreement, be evidenced by a Bid Rate Note.
(b)    Records. The date, amount, interest rate, Class, Type and duration of Interest Periods (if applicable) of each Loan made by each Lender to the Borrower, and each payment made on account of the principal thereof, shall be recorded by such Lender on its books and such entries shall be binding on the Borrower absent manifest error; provided, however, that the failure of a Lender to make any such record shall not affect the obligations of the Borrower under any of the Loan Documents.
(c)    Lost, Stolen, Destroyed or Mutilated Notes. Upon receipt by the Borrower of (i) written notice from a Lender that a Note of such Lender has been lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated, and (ii) (A) in the case of loss, theft or destruction, an unsecured agreement of indemnity from such Lender in form reasonably satisfactory to the Borrower, or (B) in the case of mutilation, upon surrender and cancellation of such Note, the Borrower shall at its own expense execute and deliver to such Lender a new Note dated the date of such lost, stolen, destroyed or mutilated Note.
Section 2.13.    Voluntary Reduction of the Revolving Loan Commitment.
The Borrower shall have the right to terminate or reduce the aggregate unused amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments (for which purpose use of the Revolving Loan Commitments shall be deemed to include the aggregate amount of Letter of Credit Liabilities and the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Bid Rate Loans and Swingline Loans, without duplication) at any time and from time to time without penalty or premium upon not less than 5 Business Days prior written notice from the Borrower to the Agent of each such termination or reduction, which notice shall specify the effective date thereof and the amount of any such reduction and shall be irrevocable once given (but may be conditioned upon the consummation of a financing to refinance such Revolving Loan Commitments) and effective only upon receipt by the Agent; provided, however, (a) that the Revolving Lenders shall be indemnified for any breakage and redeployment costs associated with any LIBOR Loans, (b) any reductions shall be in the minimum increments set forth in Section 3.5.(c), and (c) the Borrower may not reduce the aggregate amount of the Commitments below $100,000,000 unless the Borrower is terminating the Commitments in full. The Agent will promptly transmit such notice to each Revolving Lender. Without limiting the provisions of Section 2.17.(c), the Revolving Loan Commitments, once terminated or reduced may not be increased or reinstated.

47



Section 2.14.    Extension of Revolving Termination Date.
The Borrower shall have the right, exercisable on two separate occasions, to extend the Revolving Termination Date by six (6) months on each such occasion, first to August 6, 2023 and then to February 6, 2024. The Borrower may exercise such right only by executing and delivering to the Agent at least 60 days but not more than 90 days prior to the then-effective Revolving Termination Date, a written request for such extension (an “Extension Request”). The Agent shall forward to each Lender a copy of the Extension Request delivered to the Agent promptly upon receipt thereof. Subject to satisfaction of the following conditions, the Revolving Termination Date shall be extended for six (6) months effective upon receipt of the Extension Request and payment of the fee referred to in the following clause (b) in connection with each such extension: (a) immediately prior to such extension and immediately after giving effect thereto, (i) no Default or Event of Default shall exist, and (ii) the representations and warranties made or deemed made by the Borrower and each other Loan Party in the Loan Documents to which any of them is a party, shall be true and correct in all material respects (except in the case of a representation or warranty qualified by materiality, in which case such representation or warranty shall be true and correct in all respects) on and as of the date of such extension with the same force and effect as if made on and as of such date except to the extent that such representations and warranties expressly relate solely to an earlier date (in which case such representations and warranties shall have been true and correct in all material respects (except in the case of a representation or warranty qualified by materiality, in which case such representation or warranty shall have been true and correct in all respects) on and as of such earlier date) and except for changes in factual circumstances not prohibited under the Loan Documents, (b) the Borrower shall have paid the Fees payable under Section 3.6(c), and (c) for the extension to February 6, 2024, the extension to August 6, 2023 shall first have been exercised in accordance with the terms hereof.
Section 2.15.    Expiration or Maturity Date of Letters of Credit Past Revolving Termination Date.
(a)    If on the date the Revolving Loan Commitments are terminated or reduced to zero (whether voluntarily, by reason of the occurrence of an Event of Default or otherwise), there are any Letters of Credit outstanding and the aggregate Stated Amount of such Letters of Credit exceeds the balance of available funds on deposit in the Collateral Account, the Borrower shall, on such date, pay to the Agent, for its benefit and the benefit of the Revolving Lenders, for deposit into the Collateral Account an amount of money equal to such excess.
(b)    As collateral security for the prompt payment in full when due of all Letter of Credit Liabilities, the Borrower hereby pledges and grants to the Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Agent and the Revolving Lenders as provided herein, a security interest in all of its right, title and interest in and to the Collateral Account and the balances from time to time in the Collateral Account (including the investments and reinvestments therein provided for below). The balances from time to time in the Collateral Account shall not constitute payment of any Letter of Credit Liabilities until applied by the Agent as provided herein. Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, funds held in the Collateral Account shall be subject to withdrawal only as provided in this Section.
(c)    The Agent shall exercise reasonable care in the custody and preservation of any funds held in the Collateral Account and shall be deemed to have exercised such care if such funds are accorded treatment substantially equivalent to that which the Agent accords other funds deposited with the Agent, it being understood that the Agent shall not have any responsibility for taking any necessary steps to preserve rights against any parties with respect to any funds held in the Collateral Account.

48



(d)    If a drawing pursuant to any Letter of Credit occurs on or prior to the expiration date of such Letter of Credit, the Borrower and the Revolving Lenders authorize the Agent to use the monies deposited in the Collateral Account and proceeds thereof to make payment to the beneficiary with respect to such drawing or the payee with respect to such presentment.
(e)    If an Event of Default exists, the Requisite Class Lenders of Revolving Lenders may, in their discretion, at any time and from time to time, instruct the Agent to liquidate any such investments and reinvestments and apply proceeds thereof to the Obligations in accordance with Section 10.4. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Agent shall not be required to liquidate and release any such amounts if such liquidation or release would result in the amount available in the Collateral Account to be less than the Stated Amount of all Extended Letters of Credit that remain outstanding.
(f)    So long as no Default or Event of Default exists, and to the extent amounts on deposit in or credited to the Collateral Account exceed the aggregate amount of the Letter of Credit Liabilities then due and owing, the Agent shall, from time to time, at the request of the Borrower, deliver to the Borrower within 10 Business Days after the Agent’s receipt of such request from the Borrower, against receipt but without any recourse, warranty or representation whatsoever, such amount of the credit balances in the Collateral Account as exceeds the aggregate amount of the Letter of Credit Liabilities at such time. Upon the expiration, termination or cancellation of an Extended Letter of Credit for which the Lenders reimbursed (or funded participations in) a drawing deemed to have occurred under the fourth sentence of Section 2.5. (b) for deposit into the Collateral Account but in respect of which the Lenders have not otherwise received payment for the amount so reimbursed or funded, the Agent shall promptly remit to the Lenders the amount so reimbursed or funded for such Extended Letter of Credit that remains in the Collateral Account, pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid reimbursements or funded participations of the Lenders in respect of such Extended Letter of Credit, against receipt but without any recourse, warranty or representation whatsoever.
(g)    The Borrower shall pay to the Agent from time to time such fees as the Agent normally charges for similar services in connection with the Agent’s administration of the Collateral Account and investments and reinvestments of funds therein.
Section 2.16.    Amount Limitations.
Notwithstanding any other term of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, no Revolving Lender shall be required to make a Revolving Loan, the Swingline Lender shall not be required to make a Swingline Loan, no Revolving Lender shall make any Bid Rate Loan, the Agent shall not be required to issue a Letter of Credit and no reduction of the Revolving Loan Commitments pursuant to Section 2.13. shall take effect, if immediately after the making of any such Loan or such reduction in the Revolving Loan Commitments:
(a)    the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Revolving Loans, Bid Rate Loans and Swingline Loans, together with the aggregate amount of all Letter of Credit Liabilities, would exceed the aggregate amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments at such time; or
(b)    the aggregate principal amount of all outstanding Bid Rate Loans would exceed 50.0% of the aggregate amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments.
Section 2.17.    Increase in Revolving Loan Commitments; Additional Term Loans.
(a)    [Intentionally Omitted].

49



(b)    The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time beginning on the Effective Date to but excluding the Termination Date for the Term Loans to request the making of additional Term Loans (the “Additional Term Loans”) (provided that after giving effect to any Additional Term Loans pursuant to this Section, the aggregate amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments and outstanding Term Loans of the Lenders shall not exceed $1,800,000,000.00 less any prepayments of the Term Loans) by providing written notice to the Agent, which notice shall be irrevocable once given. Each such borrowing of Additional Term Loans must be in a minimum amount of $25,000,000.00.
(c)    The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time beginning on the Effective Date to but excluding the Revolving Termination Date to request increases in the amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments (provided that after giving effect to any increases in the Revolving Loan Commitments pursuant to this Section, the aggregate amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments and outstanding Term Loans of the Lenders shall not exceed $1,800,000,000.00 less any prepayments of the Term Loans) by providing written notice to the Agent, which notice shall be irrevocable once given. Each such increase in the Revolving Loan Commitments must be in an aggregate minimum amount of $25,000,000.00.
(d)    No Lender shall be required to increase its Revolving Loan Commitment, to provide a new Revolving Commitment or to make an Additional Term Loan, including by way of increasing the principal amount of its existing Term Loans, and any new Lender becoming a party to this Agreement in connection with any such requested increase must be an Eligible Assignee. If a new Revolving Lender becomes a party to this Agreement, or if any existing Revolving Lender agrees to increase its Revolving Loan Commitment, such Lender shall on the date it becomes a Revolving Lender hereunder (or increases its Revolving Loan Commitment, in the case of an existing Revolving Lender) (and as a condition thereto) purchase from the other Revolving Lenders its applicable Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage (or in the case of an existing Revolving Lender, the increase in the amount of its applicable Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage, in each case as determined after giving effect to the increase of Revolving Loan Commitments) of any outstanding Revolving Loans, by making available to the Agent for the account of such other Revolving Lenders at the Principal Office, in same day funds, an amount equal to the sum of (A) the portion of the outstanding principal amount of such Revolving Loans to be purchased by such Revolving Lender plus (B) the aggregate amount of payments previously made by the other Revolving Lenders under Section 2.5(j) which have not been repaid plus (C) interest accrued and unpaid to and as of such date on such portion of the outstanding principal amount of such Revolving Loans. The Borrower shall pay to the Revolving Lenders amounts payable, if any, to such Revolving Lenders under Section 4.4 as a result of the prepayment of any such Revolving Loans. No increase of the Revolving Loan Commitments may be effected, and no Additional Term Loans may be made, under this Section if (x) a Default or Event of Default shall be in existence on the effective date of such increase or (y) any representation or warranty made or deemed made by the Borrower or any other Loan Party in any Loan Document to which any such Loan Party is a party is not (or would not be) true or correct in all material respects (except in the case of a representation or warranty qualified by materiality, in which case such representation or warranty shall be true and correct in all respects) on the effective date of such increase except to the extent that such representations and warranties expressly related solely to an earlier date (in which case such representations and warranties shall have been true and correct in all material respects (except in the case of a representation or warranty qualified by materiality, in which case such representation or warranty shall have been true and correct in all respects) on and as of such earlier date). In connection with any increase in the aggregate amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments or the making of Additional Term Loans pursuant to this subsection, (a) any Lender becoming a party hereto shall execute such documents and agreements as the Agent may reasonably request and (b) the Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements so that each new Lender, and any existing Lender increasing its Revolving Loan Commitment or making Additional Term

50



Loans, receives new or replacement Notes, as appropriate, in the amount of such Lender's Revolving Loan Commitment or reflecting such Additional Term Loans of the Class of Term Loans made by such Lender within 2 Business Days of the effectiveness of the applicable increase in the aggregate amount of Revolving Loan Commitments or the making of Additional Term Loans. Any increase in the Revolving Loan Commitments or making of Additional Term Loans pursuant to this Section 2.17. shall be subject to the condition that the Borrower shall have paid to the Agent, such fees as shall be due to Agent and/or the Lenders at such time under the Fee Letter or as may be agreed-upon between the Borrower, on the one hand, and each new Lender and/or any existing Lender increasing its Revolving Loan Commitment or making Additional Term Loans, on the other hand. The provisions of this Section 2.17. shall not constitute a “commitment” to lend, and the Revolving Loan Commitments of the Lenders shall not be increased and no Additional Term Loans may be made until satisfaction of the provisions of this Section 2.17. and, in the case of an increase of the Revolving Loan Commitments, until the actual increase of the Revolving Loan Commitments as provided herein. The date an increase of the Revolving Loan Commitments or the making of Additional Term Loans, as applicable, becomes effective pursuant to this Section 2.17. is referred to herein as an “Increase Effective Date”, with any such increase or making of Additional Term Loans being conditioned upon, as required by any such new Lender and/or existing Lender increasing its Revolving Loan Commitment or making Additional Term Loans, receipt of (A) a certificate from the Borrower (1) certifying and attaching resolutions authorizing the increase in Revolving Loan Commitments and/or borrowing of Additional Term Loans, as applicable, (2) resolutions of each Guarantor, if any, authorizing the Guaranty of such increase in Revolving Loans and/or the borrowing of Additional Term Loans and (3) confirming the conditions set forth in (x) and (y) above have been satisfied, and (B) a customary legal opinion from Borrower’s counsel.
Section 2.18.    Reallocation of Lender Pro Rata Shares; No Novation.
On the Effective Date, the Loans and related Obligations made under the Existing Credit Agreement shall be deemed to have been made under this Agreement, without the execution by the Borrower or the Lenders of any other documentation, and all such Loans currently outstanding shall be deemed to have been simultaneously reallocated among the Lenders as follows:
(a)    On the Effective Date, each Lender that will have a greater Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage or Term Loan Percentage upon the Effective Date than its Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage (under and as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement) or Term Loan Percentage (calculated with respect to “2021 Term Loans” under and as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement only), respectively, immediately prior to the Effective Date (each, a “Purchasing Lender”), without executing an Assignment and Acceptance, shall be deemed to have purchased assignments pro rata from each Lender in the applicable Class that will have a smaller Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage (under and as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement) or Term Loan Percentage (calculated with respect to “2021 Term Loans” under and as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement only), respectively, upon the Effective Date than its Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage (under and as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement) or Term Loan Percentage (calculated with respect to “2021 Term Loans” under and as defined in the Existing Credit Agreement only), respectively, immediately prior to the Effective Date (each, a “Selling Lender”) in all such Selling Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as a Lender (collectively, the “Lender Assigned Rights and Obligations”) so that, after giving effect to such assignments, each Lender shall have its respective Commitments as set forth in Schedule I hereto and a corresponding Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage or Term Loan Percentage, as applicable, of all Loans and other Revolving Credit Exposure then outstanding under such Class. Each such purchase hereunder shall be at par for a purchase price equal to the principal amount of the loans and other participation and without recourse, representation or warranty, except that each Selling Lender shall be deemed to represent and warrant to each applicable Purchasing Lender that the Lender Assigned Rights and Obligations of such Selling Lender being assigned to such Purchasing Lender are not subject to any Liens created by that Selling Lender. For the

51



avoidance of doubt, in no event shall the aggregate amount of each Lender’s Revolving Loan Exposure outstanding at any time exceed its Revolving Loan Commitment or the principal amount of its Term Loans exceed its Term Loan Commitment, in each case, as set forth in Schedule I hereto.
(b)    The Agent shall calculate the net amount to be paid or received by each Lender in connection with the assignments effected hereunder on the Effective Date. Each Lender required to make a payment pursuant to this Section shall make the net amount of its required payment available to the Agent, in same day funds, at the office of the Agent not later than 12:00 P.M. (New York time) on the Effective Date. The Agent shall distribute on the Effective Date the proceeds of such amounts to the Lenders entitled to receive payments pursuant to this Section, pro rata in proportion to the amount each such Lender is entitled to receive at the primary address set forth in Schedule I hereto or at such other address as such Lender may request in writing to the Agent.
(c)    Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as a discharge, extinguishment or novation of the Obligations of the Loan Parties outstanding under the Existing Credit Agreement, which Obligations shall remain outstanding under this Agreement after the date hereof as “Revolving Loans” or “Term Loans”, as applicable, except as expressly modified hereby or by instruments executed concurrently with this Agreement.
ARTICLE III. - PAYMENTS, FEES AND OTHER GENERAL PROVISIONS
Section 3.1.    Payments.
(a)    Payments by Borrower. Except to the extent otherwise provided herein, all payments of principal, interest, Fees and other amounts to be made by the Borrower under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be made in Dollars, in immediately available funds, without deduction, set-off or counterclaim, to the Agent at its Principal Office, not later than 2:00 p.m. on the date on which such payment shall become due (each such payment made after such time on such due date to be deemed to have been made on the next succeeding Business Day). Subject to Section 10.4., the Borrower shall, at the time of making each payment under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, specify to the Agent the amounts payable by the Borrower hereunder to which such payment is to be applied. Each payment received by the Agent for the account of a Lender under this Agreement or any Note shall be paid to such Lender by wire transfer of immediately available funds in accordance with the wiring instructions provided by such Lender to the Agent from time to time at the applicable Lending Office of such Lender. If the Agent fails to pay such amount to a Lender within one Business Day of receipt of such amount, the Agent shall pay interest on such amount until paid at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. If the due date of any payment under this Agreement or any other Loan Document would otherwise fall on a day which is not a Business Day such date shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day and interest shall be payable for the period of such extension.
(b)    Presumptions Regarding Payments by Borrower. Unless the Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Agent for the account of the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment, the Agent may assume that the Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may (but shall not be obligated to), in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to the Lenders the amount due. In such event, if the Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each of the Lenders severally agrees to repay to the Agent on demand that amount so distributed to such Lender, with interest thereon, for each day from and including the date such amount is distributed to it to but excluding the date of payment to the Agent, at the greater of the Federal Funds Rate and a rate determined by the Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation.

All payments of principal, interest, fees and other amounts in respect of the Swingline Loans shall be for the account of the Swingline Lender only (except to the extent any Revolving Lender shall have acquired and funded a participating interest in any such Swingline Loan pursuant to Section 2.4.(e), in which case such payments shall be pro rata in accordance with such participating interests).
Section 3.3.    Sharing of Payments, Etc.
If a Lender shall obtain payment of any principal of, or interest on, any Loan of a Class made by it to the Borrower under this Agreement, or shall obtain payment on any other Obligation owing by the Borrowers or any other Loan Party through the exercise of any right of set-off, banker’s lien or counterclaim or similar right or otherwise or through voluntary prepayments directly to a Lender or other payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower or any other Loan Party to a Lender not in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and such payment should be distributed to the Lenders of the same Class of such Lender pro rata in accordance with Section 3.2. or Section 10.4., as applicable, such Lender shall promptly purchase from the other Lenders of such Class participations in (or, if and to the extent specified by such Lender, direct interests in) the Loans of such Class made by the other Lenders of such Class or other Obligations owed to such other Lenders in

53



such amounts, and make such other adjustments from time to time as shall be equitable, to the end that all the Lenders of such Class shall share the benefit of such payment (net of any reasonable expenses which may be incurred by such Lender in obtaining or preserving such benefit) pro rata in accordance with Section 3.2. or Section 10.4., as applicable. To such end, all the Lenders of such Class shall make appropriate adjustments among themselves (by the resale of participations sold or otherwise) if such payment is rescinded or must otherwise be restored. The Borrower agrees that any Lender of a Class so purchasing a participation (or direct interest) in the Loans or other Obligations owed to such other Lenders of such Class may exercise all rights of set-off, banker’s lien, counterclaim or similar rights with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct holder of Loans of such Class in the amount of such participation. Nothing contained herein shall require any Lender to exercise any such right or shall affect the right of any Lender to exercise, and retain the benefits of exercising, any such right with respect to any other indebtedness or obligation of the Borrower.
Section 3.4.    Several Obligations.
No Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make a Loan or to perform any other obligation to be made or performed by such other Lender hereunder, and the failure of any Lender to make a Loan or to perform any other obligation to be made or performed by it hereunder shall not relieve the obligation of any other Lender to make any Loan or to perform any other obligation to be made or performed by such other Lender.

Commencing on the Effective Date and until the Revolving Termination Date, the Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent for the pro rata account of each Revolving Lender (based on each Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment) a facility fee which shall accrue at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Facility Fee times the aggregate amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments. Such fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the last day of each March, June, September and December during the term of this Agreement and on the Revolving Termination Date or any earlier date of termination of the Revolving Loan Commitments or reduction of the Revolving Loan Commitments to zero. The Borrower acknowledges that the fee payable hereunder is a bona fide commitment fee and is intended as reasonable compensation to the Revolving Lenders for committing to make funds available to the Borrower as described herein and for no other purposes.

54



(b)    Letter of Credit Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent for the pro rata account of each Revolving Lender a letter of credit fee at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans that are LIBOR Loans times the daily average Stated Amount of each Letter of Credit for the period from and including the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit (x) through and including the date such Letter of Credit expires or is terminated or (y) to but excluding the date such Letter of Credit is drawn in full and is not subject to reinstatement, as the case may be. The fees provided for in the immediately preceding sentence shall be nonrefundable and payable in arrears on (i) the last day of March, June, September and December in each year, (ii) the Revolving Termination Date, (iii) the date the Revolving Loan Commitments are terminated or reduced to zero and (iv) thereafter from time to time on demand of the Agent. In addition, the Borrower shall pay to the Agent for its own account and not the account of any Lender, an issuance fee (with such issuance fee being paid to any Revolving Lender other than Agent that issues a Letter of Credit hereunder) in respect of each Letter of Credit equal to the greater of (i) $500.00 or (ii) one-eighth of one percent (0.125%) of the initial Stated Amount of such Letter of Credit. The fees provided for in the immediately preceding sentence shall be nonrefundable and payable upon issuance (or in the case of an extension of the expiration date, on the previous expiration date). The Borrower shall pay directly to the Agent from time to time on demand all commissions, charges, costs and expenses in the amounts customarily charged by the Agent from time to time in like circumstances with respect to the issuance of each Letter of Credit, drawings, amendments and other transactions relating thereto.
(c)    Revolving Credit Extension Fee. If the Borrower exercises its right to extend the Revolving Termination Date in accordance with Section 2.14., the Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent for the pro rata account of each Revolving Lender (based on each Revolving Lender’s respective Revolving Loan Commitment) a fee in connection with each extension of the Revolving Termination Date equal to seven and one-half hundredths of one percent (0.075%) of the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment (whether or not utilized) at the time of each such extension. Such fee shall be due and payable in full on the date the Agent receives each Extension Request pursuant to such Section.

Section 3.7.    Computations.
Unless otherwise expressly set forth herein, any accrued interest on any Loan, any Fees or any other Obligations due hereunder shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as applicable, and the actual number of days elapsed; provided, however, any accrued interest on any LIBOR Loan shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and the actual number of days elapsed.
Section 3.8.    Usury.
In no event shall the amount of interest due or payable on the Loans or other Obligations exceed the maximum rate of interest allowed by Applicable Law and, if any such payment is paid by the Borrower or any other Loan Party or received by any Lender, then such excess sum shall be credited as a payment of principal, unless the Borrower shall notify the respective Lender in writing that the Borrower elects to have such excess sum returned to them forthwith. It is the express intent of the parties hereto that the Borrower not pay and the Lenders not receive, directly or indirectly, in any manner whatsoever, interest in excess of that which may be lawfully paid by the Borrower under Applicable Law.

55



Section 3.9.    Agreement Regarding Interest and Charges.
The parties hereto hereby agree and stipulate that the only charge imposed upon the Borrower for the use of money in connection with this Agreement is and shall be the interest specifically described in Section 2.6.(a). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereto further agree and stipulate that all agency fees, syndication fees, facility fees, closing fees, letter of credit fees, underwriting fees, default charges, late charges, funding or “breakage” charges, increased cost charges, attorneys’ fees and reimbursement for costs and expenses paid by the Agent or any Lender to third parties or for damages incurred by the Agent or any Lender, in each case in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, are charges made to compensate the Agent or any such Lender for underwriting or administrative services and costs or losses performed or incurred, and to be performed or incurred, by the Agent and the Lenders in connection with this Agreement and shall under no circumstances be deemed to be charges for the use of money. All charges other than charges for the use of money shall be fully earned and nonrefundable when due.
Section 3.10.    Statements of Account.
The Agent will account to the Borrower monthly with a statement of Loans, Letters of Credit, accrued interest and Fees, charges and payments made pursuant to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and such account rendered by the Agent shall be deemed conclusive upon the Borrower absent manifest error. The failure of the Agent to deliver such a statement of accounts shall not relieve or discharge the Borrower from any of its obligations hereunder.
Section 3.11.    Defaulting Lenders.
(a)    Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to the Lenders, and until such time as that Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law:
(i)    Waivers and Amendments. That Defaulting Lender's right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in the definitions of Requisite Lenders and Requisite Class Lenders and in Section 12.6(c).
(ii)    Reallocation of Payments. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Agent for the account of that Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article X or otherwise, and including any amounts made available to the Agent by that Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 12.3.), shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by that Defaulting Lender to the Agent hereunder; second, in the case of a Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Lender, if so determined by the Agent, to be held as cash collateral for future funding obligations of that Defaulting Lender of any participation in any Letter of Credit; third, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Agent, unless funded by another Lender; fourth, in the case of a Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Lender, if so determined by the Agent and the Borrower (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to be held in a non-interest bearing deposit account and released in order to satisfy obligations of that Defaulting Lender to fund Loans under this Agreement; fifth, the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender against that Defaulting Lender as a result

56



of that Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; sixth, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender's breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and seventh, to that Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) (A) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Revolving Loans (or participations, if applicable, under Section 2.5.(j)) in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (B) such Revolving Loans were made at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 5.2. were satisfied or waived (or were Revolving Loans made or participations acquired pursuant to Section 2.5.(j)), such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Revolving Loans (or participations) of all non-Defaulting Revolving Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Revolving Loans of such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Revolving Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letter of Credit Obligations and Swingline Loans are held by the Revolving Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Revolving Loan Commitments without giving effect to subsection (a)(iv) below and (y)(A) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Class of Term Loans in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its share, and (B) such Term Loans were made at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 5.2. were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Term Loans of such Class of all non-Defaulting Lenders of such Class on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Term Loans of such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Term Loans of such Class are held by the Term Lenders of such Class pro rata in accordance with the Term Loan Commitments for such Class of Term Loans. Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post cash collateral pursuant to this Section 3.11.(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by that Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(iii)    Certain Fees. During any period that a Lender is a Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment and outstanding Loans shall be excluded for purposes of calculating any Fees payable to the Lenders under Section 3.6.(a), 3.6.(b) and 3.6.(c) (provided, as to Section 3.6.(c), such Defaulting Lender shall be paid a pro rata (based on the remaining time to the extended Revolving Termination Date) amount of extension fee at such time as it ceases to be a Defaulting Lender), and during such period the Borrower shall not be required to pay, and such Defaulting Lender shall not be entitled to receive, any such Fees otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender under such Sections, provided the Borrower shall be required to pay the pro rata amount of such fees to the Revolving Lenders assuming the participation exposure with respect to any Letters of Credit or Swingline Loan or related to any funding made by any Revolving Lender covering such Defaulting Lender’s share of any Loan.
(iv)    Reallocation of Applicable Percentages to Reduce Fronting Exposure. During any period in which there is a Revolving Lender which is a Defaulting Lender, for purposes of computing the amount of the obligation of each Revolving Lender which is not a Defaulting Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in (A) Letters of Credit pursuant to Section 2.5. or (B) Swingline Loans pursuant to Section 2.4., the Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage of each Revolving Lender which is not a Defaulting Lender shall be computed without giving effect to the Commitment of that Defaulting Lender; provided, that, each such reallocation shall be given effect only if (i) the conditions set forth in Section 5.2. are satisfied at the time of such reallocation (and, unless the Borrower shall have otherwise notified the Agent at such time, the Borrower shall be deemed to have represented and warranted that such conditions are satisfied at such time) and (ii) such reallocation would not cause the aggregate Revolving Loan Exposure of such Non-Defaulting Lender

57



to exceed such non-Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment. No reallocation hereunder shall constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder against a Defaulting Lender arising from that Lender having become a Defaulting Lender, including any claim of a non-Defaulting Lender as a result of such non-Defaulting Lender’s increased exposure following such reallocation.
(b)    Cash Collateral, Repayment of Swingline Loans.
(i)    If the reallocation described in the immediately preceding subsection (a)(iv) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrower shall, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to it hereunder or under law, (x) first, prepay Swingline Loans in an amount equal to the Swingline Lender’s Fronting Exposure and (y) second, Cash Collateralize the Agent’s Fronting Exposure in accordance with the procedures set forth in this subsection.

(ii)    At any time that there shall exist a Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Lender, within 1 Business Day following the written request of the Agent, the Borrower shall Cash Collateralize the Agent’s Fronting Exposure with respect to such Defaulting Lender (determined after giving effect to the immediately preceding subsection (a)(iv) and any Cash Collateral provided by such Defaulting Lender) in an amount not less than the aggregate Fronting Exposure of the Agent with respect to Letters of Credit issued and outstanding at such time.

(iii)    The Borrower, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grant to the Agent, and agree to maintain, a perfected security interest in all such Cash Collateral as security for the Defaulting Lenders’ obligation to fund participations in respect of Letter of Credit Liabilities, to be applied pursuant to the immediately following clause (iv). If at any time the Agent determines that Cash Collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Agent as herein provided, or that the total amount of such Cash Collateral is less than the aggregate Fronting Exposure of the Agent with respect to Letters of Credit issued and outstanding at such time, the Borrower will, promptly upon demand by the Agent, pay or provide to the Agent additional Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency (after giving effect to any Cash Collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender).

(iv)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Cash Collateral provided under this Section in respect of Letters of Credit shall be applied to the satisfaction of the obligations of the Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Lender to fund participations in respect of Letter of Credit Liabilities (including, as to Cash Collateral provided by a Defaulting Lender, any interest accrued on such obligation) for which the Cash Collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may otherwise be provided for herein.

(v)    Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce the Agent’s Fronting Exposure shall no longer be required to be held as Cash Collateral pursuant to this subsection following (x) the elimination of the applicable Fronting Exposure (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Lender in accordance with the immediately following subsection (c)), or (y) the determination by the Agent that there exists excess Cash Collateral; provided that, subject to the immediately preceding subsection (b), the Person providing Cash Collateral and the Agent may agree that Cash Collateral shall be held to support future anticipated Fronting Exposure or other obligations and provided further that to the extent that such Cash Collateral was provided by the Borrower, such Cash Collateral shall remain subject to the security interest granted pursuant to the Loan Documents.

58




(c)    Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Borrower and the Agent, and solely in the case of a Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Lender, the Swingline Lender, agree in writing in their sole discretion (with no consent required from the Borrower if any Default or Event of Default exists) that a Defaulting Lender that is a Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender, the Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which, in the case of a Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Lender, may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), that Lender (i) if a Revolving Lender, will, to the extent applicable, purchase that portion of outstanding Revolving Loans of the other Revolving Lenders or take such other actions as the Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Revolving Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans to be held on a pro rata basis by the Revolving Lenders in accordance with their applicable Revolving Loan Commitment Percentages (without giving effect to Section 3.11.(a)(iv)) and/or (ii) if a Term Lender of a Class of Term Loans will, if at such time the Term Loan Commitments of such Class have not been fully utilized or terminated and to the extent applicable, purchase that portion of the outstanding Term Loans of such Class of the other Term Lenders of such Class to cause the Term Loans of such Class to be held by the Term Lenders of such Class pro rata in accordance with the Term Loan Commitments for such Class of Term Loans as if there had been no Defaulting Lender of such Class, whereupon that Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender's having been a Defaulting Lender.
(d)    New Swingline Loans/Letters of Credit. So long as any Revolving Lender is a Defaulting Lender, (i) the Swingline Lender shall not be required to fund any Swingline Loans unless it is satisfied that it will have no Fronting Exposure after giving effect to such Swingline Loan and (ii) the Agent shall not be required to issue, extend, renew or increase any Letter of Credit unless it is satisfied that it will have no Fronting Exposure after giving effect thereto.
(e)    Purchase or Cancellation of Defaulting Lender’s Commitment. Any Lender who is not a Defaulting Lender may, but shall not be obligated, in its sole discretion, to acquire all or a portion of a Defaulting Lender’s Commitment and/or Loans. Any Lender desiring to exercise such right shall give written notice thereof to the Agent and the Borrower no sooner than 2 Business Days and not later than 5 Business Days after such Defaulting Lender became a Defaulting Lender. If more than one Lender exercises such right, each such Lender shall have the right to acquire an amount of such Defaulting Lender’s Commitment and/or Loans in proportion to the Commitments and/or Loans of the other Lenders exercising such right. If after such 5th Business Day, the Lenders have not elected to purchase all of the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender, then the Borrower may, by giving written notice thereof to the Agent, such Defaulting Lender and the other Lenders, either (i) demand that such Defaulting Lender assign its Commitment to an Eligible Assignee subject to and in accordance with the provisions of Section 12.5. for the purchase price provided for below or (ii) terminate the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender, whereupon such Defaulting Lender shall no longer be a party hereto or have any rights or obligations hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents. No party hereto shall have any obligation whatsoever to initiate any such replacement or to assist in finding an Eligible Assignee. Upon any such purchase or assignment, the Defaulting Lender’s interest in the Loans and its rights hereunder (but not its liability in respect thereof or under the Loan Documents or this Agreement to the extent the same relate to the period prior to the effective date of the purchase except to the extent assigned pursuant to such purchase) shall terminate on the date of purchase, and the Defaulting Lender shall promptly execute all documents reasonably requested to surrender and

59



transfer such interest to the purchaser or assignee thereof, including an appropriate Assignment and Assumption Agreement and, notwithstanding Section 12.5., shall pay to the Agent an assignment fee in the amount of $7,000.00. The purchase price for the Commitment of a Defaulting Lender shall be equal to the amount of the principal balance of the Loans outstanding and owed by the Borrower to the Defaulting Lender. Prior to payment of such purchase price to a Defaulting Lender, the Agent shall apply against such purchase price any amounts retained by the Agent pursuant to the last sentence of the immediately preceding subsection (a). Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Defaulting Lender shall be entitled to receive amounts owed to it by the Borrower under the Loan Documents which accrued prior to the date of the default by the Defaulting Lender, to the extent the same are received by the Agent from or on behalf of the Borrower. There shall be no recourse against any Lender or the Agent for the payment of such sums except to the extent of the receipt of payments from any other party or in respect of the Loans.
Section 3.12.    Taxes.
(a)    Issuing Bank. For purposes of this Section, the term “Lender” includes the Agent in its capacity as issuer of Letters of Credit hereunder and the term “Applicable Law” includes FATCA.
(b)    Payments Free of Taxes. Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Borrower or any other Loan Party under any Loan Document shall be made without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by Applicable Law. If any Applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Withholding Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the Borrower or other applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
(c)    Payment of Other Taxes by the Borrower. The Borrower and the other Loan Parties shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law, or at the option of the Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.

(d)    Indemnification by the Borrower. The Borrower and the other Loan Parties shall indemnify each Recipient, within 10 days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) other than any penalties and interest resulting from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Recipient, payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority; provided that if the Borrower or such other Loan Party reasonably believes that such Taxes were not correctly or legally asserted, such Recipient will use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Borrower or such other Loan Party to obtain a refund of such Taxes (which shall be repaid to the Borrower or such other Loan Party in accordance with subsection 3.12(h)) so long as such efforts would not, in the sole determination of such Recipient, result in any additional out-of-pocket costs or expenses not reimbursed by the Borrower or such other Loan Party or be otherwise materially disadvantageous to such Recipient, and provided further that neither the Borrower nor any other Loan Party will be required to compensate any Recipient pursuant to this Section 3.12(d) for any interest, additions to tax or penalties that accrue after 270 days after the date such Recipient first receives

60



notice of the relevant Indemnified Taxes. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender (with a copy to the Agent), or by the Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(e)    Indemnification by the Lenders. Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Agent, within 10 days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower or another Loan Party has not already indemnified the Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower and the other Loan Parties to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 12.5 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 Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Agent under this subsection. The provisions of this subsection shall continue to inure to the benefit of an Agent following its resignation or removal as Agent.
(f)    Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower or any other Loan Party to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section, the Borrower or such other Loan Party shall deliver to the Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Agent.
(g)    Status of Lenders.
(i)    Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrower and the Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by Applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in the immediately following clauses (ii)(A), (ii)(B) and (ii)(D)) shall not be required if in the Lender’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Lender to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Lender.

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

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

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

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

(II)    executed copies of IRS Form W-8ECI;

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

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

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

62



an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Agent) of any other form prescribed by Applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by Applicable Law to permit the Borrower or the Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

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

(E)    On or before the date it becomes a party to this Agreement, if the Agent is a U.S. Person, it shall deliver to the Borrower (in such number as shall be requested by the recipient) executed copies of the IRS Form W-9, or any subsequent versions or successors to such form, certifying that it is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, nothing in this Section 3.12(g)(ii)(E) shall require the Agent to deliver any documentation that it is not legally eligible to deliver as a result of any Regulatory Change after the date hereof. The Agent, and any successor or supplemental Agent, that is not a U.S. Person, shall deliver to the Borrower (in such number as shall be requested by the recipient) executed copies of IRS Form W-8IMY certifying that it is a "U.S. branch" and that the payments are not effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States and that it is using such form as evidence of its agreement with the Borrower to be treated as a U.S. Person with respect to such payments (and the Borrower and the Agent agree to so treat the Agent as a U.S. Person with respect to such payments as contemplated by Treasury Regulations Section 1.1441-1(b)(2)(iv)(A)).

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

(h)    Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this subsection (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.

63



Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this subsection, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this subsection the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This subsection shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(i)    Survival. Each party’s obligations under this Section shall survive the resignation or replacement of the Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Lender, the termination of the Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all obligations under any Loan Document.
ARTICLE IV. - YIELD PROTECTION, ETC.
Section 4.1.    Additional Costs; Capital Adequacy.
(a)    Capital Adequacy. If any Lender determines that any Regulatory Change affecting such Lender or any lending office of such Lender or such Lender’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Lender or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit or Swingline Loans held by, such Lender, to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Regulatory Change (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 Borrower 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.
(b)    Additional Costs. In addition to, and not in limitation of the immediately preceding subsection, the Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the account of each affected Lender from time to time, within thirty (30) days after written demand, such amounts as such Lender may reasonably determine to be necessary to compensate such Lender for any costs incurred by such Lender that it determines are attributable to its making or maintaining of any LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Margin Loans or its obligation to make any LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Margin Loans hereunder, any reduction in any amount receivable by such Lender under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents in respect of any of such Loans or such obligation or the maintenance by such Lender of capital in respect of its LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Margin Loans or its Commitments (such increases in costs and reductions in amounts receivable being herein called “Additional Costs”), to the extent resulting from any Regulatory Change that: (i) changes the basis of taxation of any amounts payable to such Lender under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents in respect of any of such Loans or its Commitments (other than Indemnified Taxes, Taxes described in clauses (b) through (e) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and Connection Income Taxes)); or (ii) imposes or modifies any reserve, special deposit or similar requirements (other than Regulation D of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System or other reserve requirement to the extent utilized in the determination of LIBOR or LIBOR Margin, as applicable, for such Loan) relating to any extensions of credit or other assets of, or any deposits with or other liabilities of, such Lender (or corporation controlling such Lender), or any commitment of such Lender (including, without limitation, the Commitments of such Lender hereunder); or (iii) has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on capital of such Lender (or a corporation controlling such Lender) to a level below that which such Lender (or such corporation) could have achieved but for such Regulatory Change (taking into consideration such Lender’s (or such corporation’s) policies

64



with respect to capital adequacy); or (iv) imposes on any Lender or the London interbank market any other condition, cost or expense (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or the Loans made by such Lender.
(c)    Lender’s Suspension of LIBOR Loans and LIBOR Margin Loans. Without limiting the effect of the provisions of the immediately preceding subsections (a) and (b), if, by reason of any Regulatory Change, any Lender either (i) incurs Additional Costs based on or measured by the excess above a specified level of the amount of a category of deposits or other liabilities of such Lender that includes deposits by reference to which the interest rate on LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Margin Loans is determined as provided in this Agreement or a category of extensions of credit or other assets of such Lender that includes LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Margin Loans or (ii) becomes subject to restrictions on the amount of such a category of liabilities or assets that it may hold, then, if such Lender so elects by notice to the Borrower (with a copy to the Agent), the obligation of such Lender to make or Continue, or to Convert any other Type of Loans into, LIBOR Loans and/or the obligation of a Revolving Lender that has outstanding a Bid Rate Quote to make LIBOR Margin Loans hereunder shall be suspended until such Regulatory Change ceases to be in effect (in which case the provisions of Section 4.6 shall apply).
(d)    Additional Costs in Respect of Letters of Credit. Without limiting the obligations of the Borrower under the preceding subsections of this Section (but without duplication), if as a result of any Regulatory Change or any risk-based capital guideline or other requirement heretofore or hereafter issued by any Governmental Authority there shall be imposed, modified or deemed applicable any Tax (other than Indemnified Taxes, Taxes described in clauses (b) through (e) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and Connection Income Taxes), reserve, special deposit, capital adequacy or similar requirement against or with respect to or measured by reference to Letters of Credit and the result shall be to increase the cost to the Agent of issuing (or any Revolving Lender of purchasing participations in) or maintaining its obligation hereunder to issue (or purchase participations in) any Letter of Credit or reduce any amount receivable by the Agent or any Revolving Lender hereunder in respect of any Letter of Credit, then, upon demand by the Agent or such Lender, the Borrower shall pay promptly, and in any event within 3 Business Days of demand, to the Agent for its account or the account of such Lender, as applicable, from time to time as specified by the Agent or a Lender, such additional amounts as shall be sufficient to compensate the Agent or such Lender for such increased costs or reductions in amount.
(e)    Notification and Determination of Additional Costs. The Agent and each Lender agree to notify the Borrower of any event occurring after the Agreement Date entitling the Agent or such Lender to compensation under any of the preceding subsections of this Section as promptly as practicable; provided, however, except as provided below, the failure of the Agent or any Lender to give such notice shall not release the Borrower from any of their obligations hereunder (and in the case of a Lender, to the Agent). The Agent or such Lender agrees to furnish to the Borrower (and in the case of a Lender, to the Agent) a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the basis and amount of each request by the Agent or such Lender for compensation under this Section. Absent manifest error, determinations by the Agent or any Lender of the effect of any Regulatory Change shall be conclusive, provided that such determinations are made on a reasonable basis and in good faith. The Borrower shall pay the Agent or any Lender, as the case may be, the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 15 days after receipt thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower shall not be required to pay Additional Costs pursuant to this Section if such Additional Costs were incurred more than 270 days prior to the date that the Agent or an applicable Lender notifies the Borrower of the events giving rise to such notice and of the Agent’s or such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the event giving rise to such Additional Costs is retroactive then such 270 day period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).
Section 4.2.    Suspension of LIBOR Loans and LIBOR Margin Loans.

65



(a)    Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, if, on or prior to the determination of LIBOR for any Interest Period:
(i)    the Agent reasonably determines (which determination shall be conclusive) that by reason of circumstances affecting the relevant market, adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for such Interest Period;
(ii)    the Agent reasonably determines (which determination shall be conclusive) that quotations of interest rates for the relevant deposits referred to in the definition of LIBOR are not being provided in the relevant amounts or for the relevant maturities for purposes of determining rates of interest for LIBOR Loans as provided herein;
(iii)    the Agent reasonably determines (which determination shall be conclusive) that LIBOR will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of making or maintaining LIBOR Loans for such Interest Period; or
(iv)    any Revolving Lender that has outstanding a Bid Rate Quote with respect to a LIBOR Margin Loan reasonably determines (which determination shall be conclusive) that LIBOR will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lender of making and maintaining such LIBOR Margin Loan;
then the Agent shall give the Borrower and each Lender prompt notice thereof and, so long as such condition remains in effect, (i) the Lenders shall be under no obligation to, and shall not, make additional LIBOR Loans, Continue LIBOR Loans or Convert Loans into LIBOR Loans and the Borrower shall, on the last day of each current Interest Period for each outstanding LIBOR Loan, either repay such Loan or Convert such Loan into a Base Rate Loan and (ii) in the case of clause (c) above, no Revolving Lender that has outstanding a Bid Rate Quote with respect to a LIBOR Margin Loan shall be under any obligation to make such Loan.
(b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in clause (a) above, if at any time the Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error), or the Required Lenders notify the Agent (with a copy to Borrower) that the Required Lenders have determined, that (i) any of the circumstances set forth in clause (a) have arisen and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary, (ii) any applicable interest rate specified herein is no longer a widely recognized benchmark rate for newly originated loans in the U.S. syndicated loan market in the applicable currency or (iii) the circumstances set forth in clause (a) have not arisen but the supervisor for the administrator of the LIBOR or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which LIBOR shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for loans, then the Agent and the Borrower shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest (the “Replacement Rate”) that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the United States at such time, in which case, the Replacement Rate shall, subject to this Section 4.2(b), replace such applicable interest rate, for all purposes under the Loan Documents unless and until (A) an event described in Section 4.2.(a) occurs with respect to the Replacement Rate or (B) the Agent (or the Requisite Lenders through the Agent) notifies the Borrower that the Replacement Rate does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of funding the Loans bearing interest at the Replacement Rate. In connection with the establishment and application of the Replacement Rate, the Agent and the Borrower shall enter into an amendment to this Agreement to reflect such alternate rate of interest and such other related changes to this Agreement as may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Agent, to effect the provisions of this Section 4.2(b). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 12.6, such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement so long as the Agent shall not have received, within five (5) Business Days of the date a copy of such amendment is provided to the Lenders, a written notice from the Requisite Lenders stating that such Requisite Lenders object to such

66



amendment. Until an alternate rate of interest shall be determined in accordance with this clause (b) (but, in the case of the circumstances described in clause (iii) of the first sentence of this Section 4.2(b), only to the extent LIBOR for such Interest Period is not available or published at such time on a current basis), (1) any notice of conversion/continuation that requests the conversion of any Loan to, or continuation of any Loan as, a LIBOR Loan shall be ineffective and any such Loan shall be converted to a Base Rate Loan on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto and (2) if any Notice of Borrowing requests a LIBOR Loan, such Loan shall be made as Base Rate Loan. To the extent a Replacement Rate is approved by the Agent and the Borrower in connection with this clause (b), such rate shall be applied in a manner consistent with market practice; provided that, in each case, to the extent such market practice is not administratively feasible for the Agent, such Replacement Rate shall be applied as otherwise reasonably determined by the Agent (it being understood that any such modification by the Agent shall not require the consent of, or consultation with, any of the Lenders). If the Replacement Rate determined as provided above would be less than zero, the Replacement Rate shall be deemed to be zero
Section 4.3.    Illegality.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, (a) if any Lender shall reasonably determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding) that it has become unlawful for such Lender to honor its obligation to make or maintain LIBOR Loans hereunder and/or (b) if any Lender that has an outstanding Bid Rate Quote shall determine (which determination shall be conclusive and binding) that it is unlawful for such Lender to honor its obligation to make or maintain LIBOR Margin Loans hereunder, then such Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower thereof (with a copy to the Agent) and such Lender’s obligation to make or Continue, or to Convert Loans of any other Type into, LIBOR Loans and/or such Lender’s obligation to make LIBOR Margin Loans shall be suspended until such time as such Lender may again make and maintain LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Margin Loans (in which case the provisions of Section 4.6. shall be applicable).
Section 4.4.    Compensation.
The Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the account of each Lender, upon the request of such Lender through the Agent, such amount or amounts as shall be sufficient (in the reasonable opinion of such Lender) to compensate it for any loss, cost or expense that such Lender reasonably determines is directly attributable to:
(a)    any payment or prepayment (whether mandatory or optional) of a LIBOR Loan or a Bid Rate Loan, or Conversion of a LIBOR Loan, made by such Lender for any reason (including, without limitation, acceleration) on a date other than the last day of the Interest Period for such Loan; or
(b)    any failure by the Borrower for any reason (including, without limitation, the failure of any of the applicable conditions precedent specified in Article V to be satisfied) to borrow a LIBOR Loan or a Bid Rate Loan from such Lender on the requested date for such borrowing, or to Convert a Base Rate Loan into a LIBOR Loan or Continue a LIBOR Loan on the requested date of such Conversion or Continuation.
Upon the Borrower’s request, any Lender requesting compensation under this Section shall provide the Borrower with a statement setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for requesting such compensation and the method for determining the amount thereof. Absent manifest error, determinations by any Lender in any such statement shall be conclusive, provided that such determinations are made on a reasonable basis and in good faith.

67



Section 4.5.    Affected Lenders.
If (a) a Lender requests compensation pursuant to Section 3.12. or 4.1., and the Requisite Lenders are not also doing the same, or (b) the obligation of any Lender to make LIBOR Loans or to Continue, or to Convert Base Rate Loans into, LIBOR Loans shall be suspended pursuant to Section 4.1(c) or 4.3. but the obligation of the Requisite Lenders shall not have been suspended under such Sections, then, so long as there does not then exist any Default or Event of Default, the Borrower may demand that such Lender (the “Affected Lender”), and upon such demand the Affected Lender shall promptly, assign its Commitment and Loans to an Eligible Assignee subject to and in accordance with the provisions of Section 12.5.(b) for a purchase price equal to the aggregate principal balance of all Loans then owing to the Affected Lender plus any accrued but unpaid interest thereon and accrued but unpaid fees owing to the Affected Lender, or any other amount as may be mutually agreed upon by such Affected Lender and Eligible Assignee. The Agent and the Affected Lender shall reasonably cooperate in effectuating the replacement of such Affected Lender under this Section, but at no time shall the Agent, such Affected Lender nor any other Lender be obligated in any way whatsoever to initiate any such replacement or to assist in finding an Eligible Assignee. The exercise by the Borrower of its rights under this Section shall be at the Borrower’s sole cost and expense and at no cost or expense to the Agent, the Affected Lender or any of the other Lenders. The terms of this Section shall not in any way limit the Borrower’s obligation to pay to any Affected Lender compensation owing to such Affected Lender pursuant to this Agreement (including without limitation, pursuant to Section 3.12. or 4.1.) with respect to periods up to the date of replacement.
Section 4.6.    Treatment of Affected Loans.
If the obligation of any Lender to make LIBOR Loans or to Continue, or to Convert Base Rate Loans into, LIBOR Loans shall be suspended pursuant to Section 4.1(c) or 4.3., then such Lender’s LIBOR Loans shall be automatically Converted into Base Rate Loans on the last day(s) of the then current Interest Period(s) for LIBOR Loans (or, in the case of a Conversion required by Section 4.1(c) or 4.3., on such earlier date as such Lender may specify to the Borrower with a copy to the Agent) and, unless and until such Lender gives notice as provided below that the circumstances specified in Section 4.1. or 4.3. that gave rise to such Conversion no longer exist:
(a)    to the extent that such Lender’s LIBOR Loans have been so Converted, all payments and prepayments of principal that would otherwise be applied to such Lender’s LIBOR Loans shall be applied instead to its Base Rate Loans; and
(b)    all Loans that would otherwise be made or Continued by such Lender as LIBOR Loans shall be made or Continued instead as Base Rate Loans, and all Base Rate Loans of such Lender that would otherwise be Converted into LIBOR Loans shall remain as Base Rate Loans.
If such Lender gives notice to the Borrower (with a copy to the Agent) that the circumstances specified in Section 4.1. or 4.3. that gave rise to the Conversion of such Lender’s LIBOR Loans pursuant to this Section no longer exist (which such Lender agrees to do promptly upon such circumstances ceasing to exist) at a time when LIBOR Loans made by other Lenders are outstanding, then such Lender’s Base Rate Loans shall be automatically Converted, on the first day(s) of the next succeeding Interest Period(s) for such outstanding LIBOR Loans, to the extent necessary so that, after giving effect thereto, (A) if such Lender is a Revolving Lender, all Revolving Loans held by the Revolving Lenders holding LIBOR Loans and by such Revolving Lender are held pro rata (as to principal amounts, Types and Interest Periods) in accordance with their respective Revolving Loan Commitments and (B) if such Lender is a Term Lender, all Term Loans held by the Term Lenders holding LIBOR Loans and by such Term Lender are held pro rata (as to principal amounts, Types and Interest Periods) in accordance with, prior to full utilization or termination of the Term Loan

68



Commitments, their respective Term Loan Commitments and thereafter, the respective principal amount of their Term Loans.
Section 4.7.    Change of Lending Office.
Each Lender agrees that it will use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions) to designate an alternate Lending Office with respect to any of its Loans affected by the matters or circumstances described in Section 3.12., 4.1. or 4.3. to reduce the liability of the Borrower or avoid the results provided thereunder, so long as such designation is not disadvantageous to such Lender as determined by such Lender in its sole discretion, except that such Lender shall have no obligation to designate a Lending Office located in the United States of America.
Section 4.8.    Assumptions Concerning Funding of LIBOR Loans.
Calculation of all amounts payable to a Lender under this Article IV shall be made as though such Lender had actually funded LIBOR Loans through the purchase of deposits in the relevant market bearing interest at the rate applicable to such LIBOR Loans in an amount equal to the amount of the LIBOR Loans and having a maturity comparable to the relevant Interest Period; provided, however, that each Lender may fund each of its LIBOR Loans in any manner it sees fit and the foregoing assumption shall be used only for calculation of amounts payable under this Article IV.

In exercising their respective rights and remedies the Agent and the Lenders may be selective and no failure or delay by the Agent or any of the Lenders in exercising any right shall operate as a waiver of it, nor shall any single or partial exercise of any power or right preclude its other or further exercise or the exercise of any other power or right.
(b)    Enforcement by Agent. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any other Loan Document, the authority to enforce rights and remedies hereunder and under the other Loan Documents against the Loan Parties or any of them shall be vested exclusively in, and all actions and proceedings at law in connection with such enforcement shall be instituted and maintained exclusively by, the Agent in accordance with Article XI. for the benefit of all the Lenders; provided that the foregoing shall not prohibit (i) the Agent from exercising on its own behalf the rights and remedies that inure to its benefit (solely in its capacity as Agent) hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, (ii) the Swingline Lender from exercising the rights and remedies that inure to its benefit (solely in its capacity as the Swingline Lender, as the case may be) hereunder or under the other Loan Documents, (iii) any Lender from exercising setoff rights in accordance with Section 12.3.

To the extent that any Loan Party makes a payment or payments to the Agent or any Lender, or the Agent or any Lender enforce any Liens or exercise their rights of setoff, and such payment or payments or the proceeds of such enforcement or setoff or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside and/or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party under any bankruptcy law, state or federal law, common law or equitable cause, then to the extent of such recovery, the Obligations, or part thereof

94



originally intended to be satisfied, and all Liens, rights and remedies therefor, shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment had not been made or such enforcement or setoff had not occurred.

The provisions of the preceding sentence are intended merely to bind all of the Lenders to a decision which may be made at the election of the Requisite Lenders, and if applicable, the Lenders required to waive a Default or Event of Default under Section 12.6.(b)(xiv) and are not intended to benefit the Borrower and do not give the Borrower the right to require the Lenders to rescind or annul any acceleration hereunder, even if the conditions set forth herein are satisfied.
ARTICLE XI. - THE AGENT
Section 11.1.    Authorization and Action.
Each Lender hereby appoints and authorizes the Agent to take such action as contractual representative on such Lender’s behalf and to exercise such powers under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as are specifically delegated to the Agent by the terms hereof and thereof, together with such powers as are reasonably incidental thereto. Not in limitation of the foregoing, each Lender authorizes and directs the Agent to enter into the Loan Documents for the benefit of the Lenders. Each Lender hereby agrees that, except as otherwise set forth herein, any action taken by the Requisite Lenders in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement or the Loan Documents, and the exercise by the Requisite Lenders of the powers set forth herein or therein, together with such other powers as are reasonably incidental thereto, shall be authorized and binding upon all of the Lenders. Nothing herein shall be construed to deem the Agent a trustee or fiduciary for any Lender or to impose on the Agent duties or obligations other than those expressly provided for herein. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the use of the terms “Administrative Agent”, “Agent”, “agent” and similar terms in the Loan Documents with reference to the Agent is not intended to connote any fiduciary or other implied (or express) obligations arising under agency doctrine of any Applicable Law. Instead, use of such terms is merely a matter of market custom, and is intended to create or reflect only an administrative relationship between independent contracting parties. The Agent will promptly forward to such Lender copies or, where appropriate, originals of the documents delivered to the Agent pursuant to this Agreement or the other Loan Documents. The Agent will also furnish to any Lender, upon the request of such Lender, a copy of any certificate or notice furnished to the Agent by the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Affiliate of the Borrower, pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document not already delivered to such Lender pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or any such other Loan Document. As to any matters not expressly provided for by the Loan Documents (including, without limitation, enforcement or collection of any of the Obligations), the Agent shall not be required to exercise any discretion or take any action, but shall be required to act or to refrain from acting (and shall be fully protected in so acting or refraining from acting) upon the instructions of the Requisite Lenders (or all of the Lenders if explicitly required under any other provision of this Agreement), and such instructions shall be

95



binding upon all Lenders and all holders of any of the Obligations; provided, however, that, notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Agent shall not be required to take any action which exposes the Agent to personal liability or which is contrary to this Agreement or any other Loan Document or Applicable Law. Not in limitation of the foregoing, the Agent shall not exercise any right or remedy it or the Lenders may have under any Loan Document upon the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default unless the Requisite Lenders (or all of the Lenders if explicitly required under any provision of this Agreement) have so directed the Agent to exercise such right or remedy. Without limiting the foregoing, no Lender shall have any right of action whatsoever against the Agent as a result of the Agent acting or refraining from acting under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents in accordance with the instructions of the Requisite Lenders, or where applicable, all the Lenders.
Section 11.2.    Agent’s Reliance, Etc.
Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement or any other Loan Documents, neither the Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents, employees or counsel shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by it under or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document, except for its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct in connection with its duties expressly set forth herein or therein as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Agent: (a) may treat the payee of any Note as the holder thereof until the Agent receives written notice of the assignment or transfer thereof signed by such payee and in form satisfactory to the Agent; (b) may consult with legal counsel (including its own counsel or counsel for the Borrower or any other Loan Party), independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken in good faith by it in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts. Neither the Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents, employees or counsel: (a) makes any warranty or representation to any Lender or any other Person, or shall be responsible to any Lender or any other Person for any statement, warranty or representation made or deemed made by the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Person in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document; (b) shall have any duty to ascertain or to inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the satisfaction of any conditions precedent under this Agreement or any Loan Document on the part of the Borrower or other Persons (except for the delivery to it of any certificate or document specifically required to be delivered to it pursuant to Section 5.1 or that is a condition to a Credit Event) or inspect the property, books or records of the Borrower or any other Person; (c) shall not be responsible to any Lender for the due execution, legality, validity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or value of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, any other instrument or document furnished pursuant thereto or any collateral covered thereby or the perfection or priority of any Lien in favor of the Agent on behalf of the Lenders in any such collateral; (d) shall have any liability in respect of any recitals, statements, certifications, representations or warranties contained in any of the Loan Documents or any other document, instrument, agreement, certificate or statement delivered in connection therewith; and (e) shall incur any liability under or in respect of this Agreement or any other Loan Document by acting upon any notice, consent, certificate or other instrument or writing (which may be by telephone or telecopy) believed by it to be genuine and signed, sent or given by the proper party or parties. Unless set forth in writing to the contrary, the making of its initial Loan by a Lender shall constitute a certification by such Lender to the Agent and the other Lenders that the Borrower has satisfied the conditions precedent for initial Loans set forth in Sections 5.1. and 5.2. that have not previously been waived by the Lenders. The Agent may execute any of its duties under the Loan Documents by or through agents, employees or attorneys-in-fact and shall not be responsible for the negligence or misconduct of any agent or attorney-in-fact that it selects in the absence of gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such agent or attorney-in-fact as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment.

96



Section 11.3.    Notice of Defaults.
The Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of a Default or Event of Default unless the Agent has received notice from a Lender or the Borrower referring to this Agreement, describing with reasonable specificity such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a “notice of default.” If any Lender (excluding the Lender which is also serving as the Agent) becomes aware of any Default or Event of Default, it shall promptly send to the Agent such a “notice of default.” Further, if the Agent receives such a “notice of default”, the Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to the Lenders.
Section 11.4.    Agent as Lender.
The Lender acting as Agent shall have the same rights and powers as a Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Agent; and the term “Lender” or “Lenders” shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated, include the Lender acting as Agent in each case in its individual capacity. Such Lender and its Affiliates may each accept deposits from, maintain deposits or credit balances for, invest in, lend money to, act as trustee under indentures of, serve as financial advisor to, and generally engage in any kind of business with the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Affiliate thereof as if it were any other bank and without any duty to account therefor to the other Lenders. Further, the Agent and any Affiliate may accept fees and other consideration from the Borrower for services in connection with this Agreement or otherwise without having to account for the same to the other Lenders. The Lenders acknowledge that, pursuant to such activities, the Lender acting as Agent or its Affiliates may receive information regarding the Borrower, other Loan Parties, other Subsidiaries and other Affiliates (including information that may be subject to confidentiality obligations in favor of such Person) and acknowledge that the Agent shall be under no obligation to provide such information to them.
Section 11.5.    Approvals of Lenders.
All communications from the Agent to any Lender requesting such Lender’s determination, consent, approval or disapproval (a) shall be given in the form of a written notice to such Lender, (b) shall be accompanied by a description of the matter or issue as to which such determination, approval, consent or disapproval is requested, or shall advise such Lender where information, if any, regarding such matter or issue may be inspected, or shall otherwise describe the matter or issue to be resolved, and (c) shall include, if reasonably requested by such Lender and to the extent not previously provided to such Lender, written materials and a summary of all oral information provided to the Agent by the Borrower in respect of the matter or issue to be resolved. Each Lender shall reply promptly, but in any event within 10 Business Days (or such lesser or greater period as may be specifically required under the Loan Documents) of receipt of such communication. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, unless a Lender shall give written notice to the Agent that it specifically objects to the requested determination within the applicable time period for reply, such Lender shall be deemed to have conclusively approved of or consented to such recommendation or determination.
Section 11.6.    Lender Credit Decision, Etc.

97



Each Lender expressly acknowledges and agrees that neither the Agent nor any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, counsel, attorneys-in-fact or other affiliates has made any representations or warranties as to the financial condition, operations, creditworthiness, solvency or other information concerning the business or affairs of the Borrower, any other Loan Party, any Subsidiary or any other Person to such Lender and that no act by the Agent hereafter taken, including any review of the affairs of the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Subsidiary, shall be deemed to constitute any such representation or warranty by the Agent to any Lender. Each Lender acknowledges that it has made its own credit and legal analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby, independently and without reliance upon the Agent, any other Lender or counsel to the Agent, or any of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, and based on the financial statements of the Trust, the Subsidiaries or any other Affiliate thereof, and inquiries of such Persons, its independent due diligence of the business and affairs of the Trust, the other Loan Parties, the Subsidiaries and other Persons, its review of the Loan Documents, the legal opinions required to be delivered to it hereunder, the advice of its own counsel and such other documents and information as it has deemed appropriate. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Agent, any other Lender or counsel to the Agent or any of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, and based on such review, advice, documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under the Loan Documents. The Agent shall not be required to keep itself informed as to the performance or observance by the Borrower or any other Loan Party of the Loan Documents or any other document referred to or provided for therein or to inspect the properties or books of, or make any other investigation of, the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Subsidiary. Except for notices, reports and other documents and information expressly required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Agent under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, the Agent shall have no duty or responsibility to provide any Lender with any credit or other information concerning the business, operations, property, financial and other condition or creditworthiness of the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Affiliate thereof which may come into possession of the Agent, or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, attorneys-in-fact or other affiliates; provided Agent, shall, upon any Lender’s request and at such Lender’s expense, provide copies of any such material received by Agent from the Borrower related to the Facility. Each Lender acknowledges that the Agent’s legal counsel in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement is only acting as counsel to the Agent and is not acting as counsel to such Lender.
Section 11.7.    Indemnification of Agent.
Each Lender agrees to indemnify the Agent (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrower and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so) pro rata in accordance with such Lender’s respective Pro Rata Share, from and against any and all actual out-of-pocket liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses, or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever which may at any time be imposed on, incurred by, or asserted against the Agent (in its capacity as Agent but not as a Lender) in any way relating to or arising out of the Loan Documents, any transaction contemplated hereby or thereby or any action taken or omitted by the Agent under the Loan Documents (collectively, “Indemnifiable Amounts”); provided, however, that no Lender shall be liable for any portion of such Indemnifiable Amounts to the extent resulting from the Agent’s gross negligence, willful misconduct or breach of this Agreement as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final, non-appealable judgment or if the Agent fails to follow the written direction of the Requisite Lenders (or all of the Lenders if expressly required hereunder) unless such failure results from the Agent following the advice of counsel to the Agent of which advice the Lenders have received notice. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing but subject to the preceding proviso, each Lender agrees to reimburse the Agent (to the extent not reimbursed by the Borrower and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower to do so), promptly upon demand for its Pro Rata Share of any out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable counsel fees of the counsel(s) of the Agent’s own choosing) incurred by the Agent in connection with the preparation, negotiation,

98



execution, or enforcement of, or legal advice with respect to the rights or responsibilities of the parties under, the Loan Documents, any suit or action brought by the Agent to enforce the terms of the Loan Documents and/or collect any Obligations, any “lender liability” suit or claim brought against the Agent and/or the Lenders, and any claim or suit brought against the Agent, and/or the Lenders arising under any Environmental Laws. Such out-of-pocket expenses (including counsel fees) shall be advanced by the Lenders on the request of the Agent notwithstanding any claim or assertion that the Agent is not entitled to indemnification hereunder upon receipt of an undertaking by the Agent that the Agent will reimburse the Lenders if it is actually and finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that the Agent is not so entitled to indemnification. The agreements in this Section shall survive the payment of the Loans and all other amounts payable hereunder or under the other Loan Documents and the termination of this Agreement. If the Borrower shall reimburse the Agent for any Indemnifiable Amount following payment by any Lender to the Agent in respect of such Indemnifiable Amount pursuant to this Section, the Agent shall share such reimbursement on a ratable basis with each Lender making any such payment.
Section 11.8.    Successor Agent.
The Agent may resign at any time as Agent under the Loan Documents by giving written notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower. The Agent may be removed as Agent under the Loan Documents for good cause by all of the Lenders (other than the Lender then acting as Agent) upon 30-days’ prior written notice to the Agent. Upon any such resignation or removal, the Requisite Lenders (other than the Lender then acting as Agent, in the case of the removal of the Agent under the immediately preceding sentence) shall have the right to appoint a successor Agent which appointment shall, provided no Default or Event of Default exists, be subject to the Borrower’s approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed (except that the Borrower shall, in all events, be deemed to have approved each Lender and its affiliates as a successor Agent). If no successor Agent shall have been so appointed in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence, and shall have accepted such appointment, within 30 days after the resigning Agent’s giving of notice of resignation or the Lenders’ removal of the resigning Agent, then the resigning or removed Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent, which shall be a Lender, if any Lender shall be willing to serve, and otherwise shall be a commercial bank having total combined assets of at least $50,000,000,000.00. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Agent hereunder by a successor Agent, such successor Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring or removed Agent, and the retiring or removed Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations under the Loan Documents. Such successor Agent shall issue letters of credit in substitution for the Letters of Credit, if any, outstanding at the time of such succession or shall make other arrangements satisfactory to the current Agent, in either case, to assume effectively the obligations of the current Agent with respect to such Letters of Credit. Any resignation by, or removal of, an Agent shall also constitute the resignation or removal of such Lender as the Swingline Lender. After any Agent’s resignation or removal hereunder as Agent, the provisions of this Article XI shall continue to inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Agent under the Loan Documents.
Section 11.9.    Titled Agents.
Each of the Titled Agents in each such respective capacity, assumes no responsibility or obligation hereunder, including, without limitation, for servicing, enforcement or collection of any of the Loans, or for any duties as an agent hereunder for the Lenders. The titles of “Arrangers”, “Syndication Agent”, and “Documentation Agent” are solely honorific and imply no fiduciary responsibility on the part of the Titled Agents to the Agent, the Borrower or any Lender and the use of such titles does not impose on the Titled Agents any duties or obligations greater than those of any other Lender or entitle the Titled Agents to any rights other than those to which any other Lender is entitled.

If the Borrower shall fail to pay any amounts required to be paid by them pursuant to this Section, the Agent and/or the Lenders may pay such amounts on behalf of the Borrower and either deem the same to be Loans outstanding hereunder or otherwise Obligations owing hereunder.

Section 12.3.    Setoff.
Subject to Section 3.3. and in addition to any rights now or hereafter granted under Applicable Law and not by way of limitation of any such rights, the Agent, each Lender and each Participant is hereby authorized by the Borrower, at any time or from time to time while an Event of Default exists, without prior notice to the Borrower or to any other Person, any such notice being hereby expressly waived, but in the case of a Lender or Participant subject to receipt of the prior written consent of the Requisite Lenders exercised in their sole discretion, to set off and to appropriate and to apply any and all deposits (general or special, including, but not limited to, indebtedness evidenced by certificates of deposit, whether matured or unmatured) and any other indebtedness at any time held or owing by the Agent, such Lender or any Affiliate of the Agent or such Lender, to or for the credit or the account of the Borrower against and on account of any of the Obligations, irrespective of whether or not any or all of the Loans and all other Obligations have been declared to be, or have otherwise become, due and payable as permitted by Section 10.2., and although such obligations shall be contingent or unmatured. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section, if any Defaulting Lender shall exercise any such right of setoff, (x) all amounts so set off shall be paid over immediately to the Agent for further application in accordance with the provisions of Section 3.11. and, pending such payment, shall be segregated by such Defaulting Lender from its other funds and deemed held in trust for the benefit of the Agent and the Lenders, and (y) such Defaulting Lender shall provide promptly to the Agent a statement describing in reasonable detail the Obligations owing to such Defaulting Lender as to which it exercised such right of setoff.

(a)    EACH PARTY HERETO ACKNOWLEDGES THAT ANY DISPUTE OR CONTROVERSY BETWEEN OR AMONG THE BORROWER, THE AGENT OR ANY OF THE LENDERS WOULD BE BASED ON DIFFICULT AND COMPLEX ISSUES OF LAW AND FACT AND WOULD RESULT IN DELAY AND EXPENSE TO THE PARTIES. ACCORDINGLY, TO THE EXTENT

103



PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, EACH OF THE LENDERS, THE AGENT AND THE BORROWER HEREBY WAIVES ITS RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND OR NATURE IN ANY COURT OR TRIBUNAL IN WHICH AN ACTION MAY BE COMMENCED BY OR AGAINST ANY PARTY HERETO ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT, THE NOTES, OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR BY REASON OF ANY OTHER SUIT, CAUSE OF ACTION OR DISPUTE WHATSOEVER BETWEEN OR AMONG THE BORROWER, THE AGENT OR ANY OF THE LENDERS OF ANY KIND OR NATURE RELATING TO ANY OF THE LOAN DOCUMENTS.
(b)    EACH OF THE BORROWER, THE AGENT AND EACH LENDER HEREBY AGREES THAT THE FEDERAL DISTRICT COURT OF THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK AND ANY STATE COURT LOCATED IN THE BOROUGH OF MANHATTAN, NEW YORK, NEW YORK, SHALL HAVE JURISDICTION TO HEAR AND DETERMINE ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES BETWEEN OR AMONG THE BORROWER, THE AGENT OR ANY OF THE LENDERS, PERTAINING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE LOANS AND LETTERS OF CREDIT, THE NOTES OR ANY OTHER LOAN DOCUMENT OR TO ANY MATTER ARISING HEREFROM OR THEREFROM. THE BORROWER AND EACH OF THE LENDERS EXPRESSLY SUBMIT AND CONSENT IN ADVANCE TO SUCH JURISDICTION IN ANY ACTION OR PROCEEDING COMMENCED IN SUCH COURTS WITH RESPECT TO SUCH CLAIMS OR DISPUTES. EACH PARTY FURTHER WAIVES ANY OBJECTION THAT IT MAY NOW OR HEREAFTER HAVE TO THE VENUE OF ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING IN ANY SUCH COURT OR THAT SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING WAS BROUGHT IN AN INCONVENIENT FORUM, AND EACH AGREES NOT TO PLEAD OR CLAIM THE SAME. THE CHOICE OF FORUM SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION SHALL NOT BE DEEMED TO PRECLUDE THE BRINGING OF ANY ACTION BY THE AGENT OR ANY LENDER OR THE ENFORCEMENT BY THE AGENT OR ANY LENDER OF ANY JUDGMENT OBTAINED IN SUCH FORUM IN ANY OTHER APPROPRIATE JURISDICTION.
(c)    THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED BY EACH PARTY WITH THE ADVICE OF COUNSEL AND WITH A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF THE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES THEREOF, AND SHALL SURVIVE THE PAYMENT OF THE LOANS AND ALL OTHER AMOUNTS PAYABLE HEREUNDER OR UNDER THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS, THE TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION OF ALL LETTERS OF CREDIT AND THE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
Section 12.5.    Successors and Assigns.

Nothing in this Agreement, expressed or implied, shall be construed to confer upon any Person (other than the parties hereto, their respective successors and assigns permitted hereby, Participants to the extent provided in the immediately following subsection (d) and, to the extent expressly contemplated hereby, the Related Parties of the Agent and the Lenders) any legal or equitable right, remedy or claim under or by reason of this Agreement.

104



(b)    Assignments by Lenders. Any Lender may at any time assign to one or more Eligible Assignees all or a portion of its rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitments and the Loans at the time owing to it); provided that any such assignment shall be subject to the following conditions:
(i)    Minimum Amounts.

(A)    in the case of (w) an assignment of the entire remaining amount of an assigning Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment and/or Revolving Loans at the time owing to it, (x) contemporaneous assignments to related Approved Funds that equal at least the amount specified in the immediately following clause (B) in the aggregate, (y) an assignment of the entire remaining amount of an assigning Term Lender’s Term Loan Commitment or Term Loans of a Class at the time owing to it, or (z) an assignment to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund, no minimum amount need be assigned; and

(B)    in any case not described in the immediately preceding subsection (A), the aggregate amount of a specific Class of Commitments (which for this purpose includes outstanding Loans made by a Lender in respect of its Commitment) or, if the applicable Class of Commitments is not then in effect, the principal outstanding balance of the applicable Class of Loans of the assigning Lender subject to each such assignment (in each case, determined as of the date the Assignment and Assumption with respect to such assignment is delivered to the Agent or, if “Trade Date” is specified in the Assignment and Assumption, as of the Trade Date) shall not be less than $5,000,000 in the case of any assignment of a Commitment or Loan (and may be integral multiples of $500,000 in excess thereof), unless each of the Agent and, so long as no Default or Event of Default shall exist, the Borrower otherwise consents (each such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed); provided, however, that if, after giving effect to such assignment, the amount of the Commitment of the applicable Class held by such assigning Lender or the outstanding principal balance of the Loans of the applicable Class of such assigning Lender, as applicable, would be less than $5,000,000, then such assigning Lender shall assign the entire amount of its Commitment and Loans at the time owing to it; provided, further, that, notwithstanding the foregoing, a Term Lender holding a particular Class of Term Loans may assign the entire remaining amount of such Class of Term Loans without having to assign any other Loan or Commitment or otherwise comply with this subsection (B).

(ii)    Proportionate Amounts. Each partial assignment shall be made as an assignment of a proportionate part of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement with respect to the Loan or the Commitment assigned, except that this clause (ii) shall not (x) apply to rights in respect of a Bid Rate Loan or (y) prohibit any Lender from assigning all or a portion of its rights and obligations among separate Classes of Loans and Commitments on a non-pro rata basis.

(iii)    Required Consents. No consent shall be required for any assignment except to the extent required by clause (i)(B) of this subsection (b) and, in addition:

(A)    the consent of the Borrower (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be required unless (x) a Default or Event of Default shall exist at the time of such assignment or (y) such assignment is to a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund; provided that the Borrower shall be deemed to have consented to any such

105



assignment unless the Borrower shall object thereto by written notice to the Agent within 5 Business Days after having received notice thereof;

(B)    the consent of the Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be required for assignments in respect of (x) a Commitment of a Class if such assignment is to a Person that is not already a Lender with a Commitment of such Class, an Affiliate of such a Lender or an Approved Fund with respect to such a Lender or (y) a Term Loan to a Person who is not a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund; and

(C)    the consent of the Swingline Lender (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) shall be required for any assignment in respect of a Revolving Loan Commitment to a Person that is not already a Revolving Lender.

(iv)    Assignment and Acceptance; Notes. The parties to each assignment shall execute and deliver to the Agent an Assignment and Assumption, together with a processing and recordation fee of $4,500 for each assignment (which fee the Agent may, in its sole discretion, elect to waive), and the assignee, if it is not a Lender, shall deliver to the Agent an Administrative Questionnaire. If requested by the transferor Lender or the assignee, upon the consummation of any assignment, the transferor Lender, the Agent and the Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements so that new Notes are issued to the assignee and such transferor Lender, as appropriate.

(v)    No Assignment to Certain Persons. No such assignment shall be made to (A) the Borrower or any of the Affiliates or Subsidiaries of the Borrower or (B) to any Defaulting Lender or any of its Subsidiaries, or to any Person who, upon becoming a Lender hereunder, would constitute any of the foregoing Persons described in this clause (B).

(vi)    No Assignment to Natural Persons. No such assignment shall be made to a natural person.

(vii)    Certain Additional Payments. In connection with any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder, no such assignment shall be effective unless and until, in addition to the other conditions thereto set forth herein, the parties to the assignment shall make such additional payments to the Agent in an aggregate amount sufficient, upon distribution thereof as appropriate (which may be outright payment, purchases by the assignee of participations or subparticipations, or other compensating actions, including funding, with the consent of the Borrower and the Agent, the applicable pro rata share of Loans previously requested but not funded by the Defaulting Lender, to each of which the applicable assignee and assignor hereby irrevocably consent), to (x) pay and satisfy in full all payment liabilities then owed by such Defaulting Lender to the Agent, the Swingline Lender and each Lender hereunder (and interest accrued thereon), and (y) acquire (and fund as appropriate) (1) its full pro rata share of all Revolving Loans and participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans in accordance with its Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage and (2) all Term Loans and any Term Loan Commitment held by such Defaulting Lender. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender hereunder shall become effective under Applicable Law without compliance with the provisions of this paragraph, then the assignee of such interest shall be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender for all purposes of this Agreement until such compliance occurs.


106



Subject to acceptance and recording thereof by the Agent pursuant to the immediately following subsection (c), from and after the effective date specified in each Assignment and Assumption, the assignee thereunder shall be a party to this Agreement and, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, have the rights and obligations of a Lender under this Agreement, and the assigning Lender thereunder shall, to the extent of the interest assigned by such Assignment and Assumption, be released from its obligations under this Agreement (and, in the case of an Assignment and Assumption covering all of the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, such Lender shall cease to be a party hereto) but shall continue to be entitled to the benefits of Sections 4.4., 12.2. and 12.9. and the other provisions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as provided in Section 12.10. with respect to facts and circumstances occurring prior to the effective date of such assignment; provided, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no assignment by a Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender having been a Defaulting Lender. Any assignment or transfer by a Lender of rights or obligations under this Agreement that does not comply with this paragraph shall be treated for purposes of this Agreement as a sale by such Lender of a participation in such rights and obligations in accordance with the immediately following subsection (d).

(c)    Register. The Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of the Borrower, shall maintain at the Principal Office a copy of each Assignment and Assumption delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amounts (and stated interest) of the Loans owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (the “Register”). The entries in the Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and the Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and any Lender, at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.
(d)    Participations. Any Lender may at any time, without the consent of, or notice to, the Borrower or the Agent, sell participations to any Person (other than a natural Person, or a holding company, investment vehicle or trust for, or owned and operated for the primary benefit of, a natural Person, or the Borrower or any of the Affiliates or Subsidiaries of the Borrower) (each, a “Participant”) in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and/or obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Revolving Loan Commitment and/or the Loans owing to it); provided that (i) such Lender’s obligations under this Agreement shall remain unchanged, (ii) such Lender shall remain solely responsible to the other parties hereto for the performance of such obligations, and (iii) the Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement. Any agreement or instrument pursuant to which a Lender sells such a participation shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right to enforce this Agreement and to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such agreement or instrument may provide that such Lender will not, without the consent of the Participant, agree to (w) increase such Lender’s Commitment, (x) extend the date fixed for the payment of principal on the Loans or portions thereof owing to such Lender, (y) reduce the rate at which interest is payable thereon or (z) except as otherwise permitted by this Agreement, release any Guarantor from its Obligations under the Guaranty. The Borrower agrees that each Participant shall be entitled to the benefits of Sections 3.12., 4.1., 4.4. (subject to the requirements and limitations therein, including the requirements under Section 3.12(g) (it being understood that the documentation required under Section 3.12(g) shall be delivered to the participating Lender)) to the same extent as if it were a Lender and had acquired its interest by assignment pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Section; provided that such Participant (A) agrees to be subject to the provisions of Section 4.5. as if it were an assignee under paragraph (b) of this Section; and (B) shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under Sections 4.1. or 3.12., with respect to any participation, than its participating Lender would have been entitled to receive, except to the extent such entitlement to receive a greater payment results from a Regulatory Change that occurs after the

107



Participant acquired the applicable participation. Each Lender that sells a participation agrees, at the Borrower’s request and expense, to use reasonable efforts to cooperate with the Borrower to effectuate the provisions of Section 4.5. with respect to any Participant. To the extent permitted by law, each Participant also shall be entitled to the benefits of Section 12.3. as though it were a Lender; provided that such Participant agrees to be subject to Section 3.3. as though it were a Lender. Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of the Borrower, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations. The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Agent (in its capacity as Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.
(e)    Certain Pledges. Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in all or any portion of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender, including any pledge or assignment to secure obligations to a Federal Reserve Bank or any other central bank having jurisdiction over such Lender; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute any such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.
(f)    No Registration. Each Lender agrees that, without the prior written consent of the Borrower and the Agent, it will not make any assignment hereunder in any manner or under any circumstances that would require registration or qualification of, or filings in respect of, any Loan or Note under the Securities Act or any other securities laws of the United States of America or of any other jurisdiction.
(g)    Designated Lenders. Any Revolving Lender (each, a “Designating Lender”) may at any time while the Trust has been assigned an Investment Grade Rating from at least two of the Rating Agencies designate one Designated Lender to fund Bid Rate Loans on behalf of such Designating Lender subject to the terms of this subsection, and the provisions in the immediately preceding subsections (b) and (d) shall not apply to such designation. No Lender may designate more than one Designated Lender. The parties to each such designation shall execute and deliver to the Agent for its acceptance a Designation Agreement. Upon such receipt of an appropriately completed Designation Agreement executed by a Designating Lender and a designee representing that it is a Designated Lender, the Agent will accept such Designation Agreement and give prompt notice thereof to the Borrower, whereupon (i) the Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Designating Lender a Bid Rate Note payable to the Designated Lender, (ii) from and after the effective date specified in the Designation Agreement, the Designated Lender shall become a party to this Agreement with a right to make Bid Rate Loans on behalf of its Designating Lender pursuant to Section 2.3. after the Borrower has accepted a Bid Rate Loan (or portion thereof) of the Designating Lender, and (iii) the Designated Lender shall not be required to make payments with respect to any obligations in this Agreement except to the extent of excess cash flow of such Designated Lender which is not otherwise required to repay obligations of such Designated Lender which are then due and payable; provided, however, that regardless of such designation and assumption by the Designated Lender, the Designating Lender shall be and remain obligated to the Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders for each and every of the obligations of the Designating Lender and its related Designated Lender with respect to this Agreement, including, without limitation, any indemnification obligations under Section 11.7. and any sums otherwise payable to the Borrower by the

108



Designated Lender. Each Designating Lender shall serve as the agent of the Designated Lender and shall on behalf of, and to the exclusion of, the Designated Lender: (i) receive any and all payments made for the benefit of the Designated Lender and (ii) give and receive all communications and notices and take all actions hereunder, including, without limitation, votes, approvals, waivers, consents and amendments under or relating to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Any such notice, communication, vote, approval, waiver, consent or amendment shall be signed by the Designating Lender as agent for the Designated Lender and shall not be signed by the Designated Lender on its own behalf and shall be binding on the Designated Lender to the same extent as if signed by the Designated Lender on its own behalf. The Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders may rely thereon without any requirement that the Designated Lender sign or acknowledge the same. No Designated Lender may assign or transfer all or any portion of its interest hereunder or under any other Loan Document, other than assignments to the Designating Lender which originally designated such Designated Lender. The Borrower, the Lenders and the Agent each hereby agrees that it will not institute against any Designated Lender or join any other Person in instituting against any Designated Lender any bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, insolvency or liquidation proceeding under any federal or state bankruptcy or similar law, until the later to occur of (x) one year and one day after the payment in full of the latest maturing commercial paper note issued by such Designated Lender and (y) the Revolving Termination Date. In connection with any such designation, the Designating Lender shall pay to the Agent an administrative fee for processing such designation in the amount of $4,500.
Section 12.6.    Amendments.
(a)    Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, any consent or approval required or permitted by this Agreement or any other Loan Document to be given by the Lenders may be given, and any term of this Agreement or of any other Loan Document may be amended, and the performance or observance by the Borrower or any other Loan Party or any other Subsidiary of any terms of this Agreement or such other Loan Document or the continuance of any Default or Event of Default may be waived (either generally or in a particular instance and either retroactively or prospectively) with, but only with, the written consent of the Requisite Lenders (or the Agent at the written direction of the Requisite Lenders) and, in the case of an amendment to any Loan Document, the written consent of each Loan Party a party thereto. Subject to the immediately following subsection (b), any term of this Agreement or of any other Loan Document relating to the rights or obligations of the Lenders of a particular Class, and not Lenders of any other Class, may be amended, and the performance or observance by the Borrower or any other Loan Party or any Subsidiary of any such terms may be waived (either generally or in a particular instance and either retroactively or prospectively) with, and only with, the written consent of the Requisite Class Lenders for such Class of Lenders (and, in the case of an amendment to any Loan Document, the written consent of each Loan Party which is a party thereto). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section, the Fee Letter may only be amended, and the performance or observance by any Loan Party thereunder may only be waived, in a writing executed by the parties thereto.
(b)    In addition to the foregoing requirements, no amendment waiver or consent shall do any of the following:
(i)    (A) increase (or reinstate) the Commitments of a Lender or subject a Lender to any additional obligations without the written consent of such Lender or (B) increase the aggregate Commitments other than in connection with an increase under Section 2.17. as provided therein without the consent of each Lender;

    

109



(ii)    reduce the principal of, or interest that has accrued or the rates of interest that will be charged on the outstanding principal amount of, any Loans or other Obligations without the written consent of each Lender directly affected thereby; provided, however, only the written consent of the Requisite Lenders shall be required for the waiver of interest payable at the Post-Default Rate, retraction of the imposition of interest at the Post-Default Rate and amendment of the definition of “Post-Default Rate”;

(iii)    reduce the amount of any Fees payable to a Lender without the written consent of such Lender;

(iv)    modify the definition of “Revolving Loan Commitment Percentage” without the written consent of each Revolving Lender;

(v)    modify the definition of “Revolving Termination Date” (except in accordance with Section 2.14.), or extend the expiration date of any Letter of Credit beyond the Revolving Termination Date (except in accordance with Section 2.5.(b)), in each case, without the written consent of each Revolving Lender directly affected thereby;

(vi)    modify the definition of “Termination Date” as it applies to a Class of Loans (except as set forth in clause (v) above) or otherwise postpone any date fixed for, or forgive, any payment of principal of, or interest on, any Loans of a Class or for the payment of Fees or any other Obligations owing to the Lenders of such Class, in each case, without the written consent of each Lender of such Class directly affected thereby;

(vii)    while any Term Loans are outstanding, amend, modify or waive (A) Section 5.2. or any other provision of this Agreement if the effect of such amendment, modification or waiver is to require the Revolving Lenders to make Revolving Loans when such Lenders would not otherwise be required to do so, (B) the amount of the Swingline Commitment or (C) the L/C Commitment Amount, in each case, without the prior written consent of the Requisite Class Lenders of the Revolving Lenders;

(viii)    modify the definition of “Pro Rata Share” or amend or otherwise modify the provisions of Section 3.2. without the written consent of each Lender;

(ix)    amend this Section or amend the definitions of the terms used in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents insofar as such definitions affect the substance of this Section, modify the definition of the term “Requisite Lenders” or (except as otherwise provided in the immediately following clause (x)), modify in any other manner the number or percentage of the Lenders required to make any determinations or waive any rights hereunder or to modify any provision hereof without the written consent of each Lender;

(x)    modify the definition of the term “Requisite Class Lenders” as it relates to a particular Class of Lenders or modify in any other manner the number or percentage of a Class of Lenders required to make any determinations or waive any rights hereunder or to modify any provision hereof, in each case, solely with respect to such Class of Lenders, without the written consent of each Lender in such Class;

(xi)    release any Guarantor from its obligations under the Guaranty (except as expressly permitted by Section 7.12.(b)) without the written consent of each Lender; provided, however, that

110



this clause (xi) shall not apply to any amendment to Section 7.12. unless such amendment has the effect of releasing any Person that has already become a Guarantor;
(xii)    amend, or waive the Borrower’s compliance with, Section 2.16. without the written consent of each Revolving Lender;
(xiii) modify Section 2.17. to change the aggregate amount of Revolving Commitments and Term Loans that may be outstanding after giving effect to any increases of the Revolving Commitments or making any Term Loans without the written consent of each Lender; or
(xiv)    waive any Default or Event of Default occurring under Section 10.1.(a) or Section 10.1.(b) without the written consent of each Lender owed the Obligations that were not paid when due resulting in such Default or Event of Default.
(c)    No amendment, waiver or consent, unless in writing and signed by the Agent, in such capacity, in addition to the Lenders required hereinabove to take such action, shall affect the rights or duties of the Agent under this Agreement (including Section 2.5) or any of the other Loan Documents. Any amendment, waiver or consent relating to Section 2.4. or the obligations of the Swingline Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall, in addition to the Lenders required hereinabove to take such action, require the written consent of the Swingline Lender. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Defaulting Lender shall have any right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent hereunder, except that (a) the Commitment of such Lender may not be increased or extended without the consent of such Lender (except an extension in accordance with Section 2.5.(b)), and (b) no such amendment, waiver or consent may uniquely and negatively impact such Defaulting Lender without the approval of such Defaulting Lender.
(d)    No waiver shall extend to or affect any obligation not expressly waived or impair any right consequent thereon and any amendment, waiver or consent shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the specific purpose set forth therein. Except as otherwise provided in Section 11.5., no course of dealing or delay or omission on the part of the Agent or any Lender in exercising any right shall operate as a waiver thereof or otherwise be prejudicial thereto. Any Event of Default occurring hereunder shall continue to exist until such time as such Event of Default is waived in writing in accordance with the terms of this Section, notwithstanding any attempted cure or other action by the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Person subsequent to the occurrence of such Event of Default. Except as otherwise explicitly provided for herein or in any other Loan Document, no notice to or demand upon the Borrower shall entitle the Borrower to any other or further notice or demand in similar or other circumstances.
(e)    If any Lender is a Non-Consenting Lender, then the Borrower may, at its sole expense and effort, upon notice to such Lender and the Agent, require that such Lender assign and delegate, without recourse in accordance with and subject to the restrictions contained in and consents required pursuant to Section 12.5.(b), all of its interests, rights (other than its existing rights to payments pursuant to Section 3.3. and Section 4.1.) and obligations under this Agreement and the related Loan Documents to an Eligible Assignee that shall assume such obligations (which assignee may be a Lender, if a Lender accepts such assignment); provided, that (i) the Borrower shall have paid to the Agent the assignment fee specified in Section 12.5., (ii) such Lender shall have received payment of an amount equal to the outstanding principal of its Loans and funded participations in Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans, accrued interest thereon, and all other amounts payable to it hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (including any amounts under Section 4.4. from the assignee (to the extent of such outstanding principal and accrued interest and fees) or the Borrower (in the case of other amounts); (iii) such assignment does not conflict with Applicable Law; and the applicable assignee shall have consented to the applicable amendment, waiver or consent. A Lender shall not be required to make any such assignment or delegation, if prior thereto, as a result of a

111



waiver by such Lender or otherwise, the circumstances entitling the Borrower to require such assignment and delegation cease to apply.
(f)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 12.6, if the Agent and the Borrower have jointly identified an ambiguity, omission, mistake or defect in any provision of this Agreement or an inconsistency between provisions of this Agreement, the Agent and the Borrower shall be permitted to amend such provision or provisions to cure such ambiguity, omission, mistake, defect or inconsistency so long as to do so would not adversely impair the interests of the Lenders. Any such amendment shall become effective without any further action or consent of any of other party to this Agreement. The Administrative Agent shall provide a copy of any such amendment to the Lenders promptly after execution thereof.
Section 12.7.    Nonliability of Agent and Lenders.
The relationship between the Borrower, on the one hand, and the Lenders and the Agent, on the other hand, shall be solely that of borrower and lender. Neither the Agent nor any Lender shall have any fiduciary responsibilities to the Borrower and no provision in this Agreement or in any of the other Loan Documents, and no course of dealing between or among any of the parties hereto, shall be deemed to create any fiduciary duty owing by the Agent or any Lender to any Lender, the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Subsidiary. Neither the Agent nor any Lender undertakes any responsibility to the Borrower to review or inform the Borrower of any matter in connection with any phase of the Borrower’s business or operations.
Section 12.8.    Confidentiality.
Except as otherwise provided by Applicable Law, the Agent and each Lender shall maintain the confidentiality of all Information (as defined below) in accordance with its customary procedure for handling confidential information of this nature and in accordance with safe and sound banking practices but in any event may make disclosure: (a) to its Affiliates and to its and its Affiliates’ respective partners, directors, officers, employees, agents, advisors and other representatives (it being understood that the Persons to whom such disclosure is made will be informed of the confidential nature of such Information and instructed to keep such Information confidential); (b) subject to an agreement containing provisions substantially the same as those of this Section, to (i) any actual or proposed assignee, Participant or other transferee in connection with a potential transfer of any Commitment or participation therein as permitted hereunder, or (ii) any actual or prospective counterparty (or its advisors) to any swap or derivative transaction relating to the Borrower or any of its Obligations; (c) as required or requested by any Governmental Authority or representative thereof or pursuant to legal process or in connection with any legal proceedings, or as otherwise required by Applicable Law; provided that unless specifically prohibited by applicable law or court order, the Agent or such Lender shall make reasonable efforts to notify the Borrower of any request by any Governmental Authority (other than any such request in connection with any regulatory examination of the Agent or such Lender or in accordance with the regulatory compliance policy of the Agent or such Lender) for disclosure of any confidential information prior to disclosure thereof; (d) to the Agent’s or such Lender’s independent auditors, consultants, and other professional advisors (provided they shall be notified of the confidential nature of the information); (e) in connection with the exercise of any remedies under any Loan Document or any action or proceeding relating to any Loan Document or the enforcement of rights hereunder or thereunder; (f) to the extent such Information (i) becomes publicly available other than as a result of a breach of this Section actually known by the Agent or such Lender to be a breach of this Section or (ii) becomes available to the Agent, any Lender or any Affiliate of the Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis from a source other than the Borrower or any Affiliate of the Borrower; (g) to the extent requested by, or required to be disclosed to, any nationally recognized rating agency or regulatory or similar authority (including any self-regulatory authority, such as the National Association of Insurance Commissioners)

112



having or purporting to have jurisdiction over it; (h) to bank trade publications, such information to consist of deal terms and other information customarily found in such publications; (i) to any other party hereto; (j) for purposes of establishing a “due diligence” defense; and (k) with the consent of the Borrower. For the avoidance of doubt, the Agent and each Lender may disclose any such confidential information, without notice to the Borrower or any other Loan Party, to Governmental Authorities in connection with any regulatory examination of the Agent or such Lender or in accordance with the regulatory compliance policy of the Agent or such Lender. As used in this Section, the term “Information” means all information received from the Borrower, the Borrower, any other Loan Party, any other Subsidiary or Affiliate relating to any Loan Party or any of their respective businesses, other than any such information that is available to the Agent or any Lender on a nonconfidential basis prior to disclosure by the Borrower, any other Loan Party, any other Subsidiary or any Affiliate, provided that, in the case of any such information received from the Borrower, any other Loan Party, any other Subsidiary or any Affiliate after the date hereof, such information is clearly identified at the time of delivery as confidential. Any Person required to maintain the confidentiality of Information as provided in this Section shall be considered to have complied with its obligation to do so if such Person has exercised the same degree of care to maintain the confidentiality of such Information as such Person would accord to its own confidential information.
Section 12.9.    Indemnification.
(a)    The Borrower shall and hereby agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Agent, each of the Lenders, any Affiliate of the Agent or any Lender, and their respective directors, officers, shareholders, agents, employees and counsel (each referred to herein as an “Indemnified Party”) from and against any and all of the following (collectively, the “Indemnified Costs”): losses, costs, claims, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, judgments or reasonable expenses of every kind and nature (including, without limitation, amounts paid in settlement, court costs and the reasonable and documented out-of pocket fees, disbursements of one counsel to such Indemnified Parties and, if reasonably necessary, a single local counsel for the Indemnified Parties in each relevant jurisdiction and with respect to each relevant specialty, and in the case of an actual or perceived conflict of interest, one additional counsel in each relevant jurisdiction to the affected Indemnified Parties similarly situated incurred in connection with any litigation, investigation, claim or proceeding or any advice rendered in connection therewith, but excluding Indemnified Costs indemnification in respect of which is specifically covered by Section 3.12. or 4.1. or expressly excluded from the coverage of such Section 3.12. or 4.1.) incurred by an Indemnified Party in connection with, arising out of, or by reason of, any suit, cause of action, claim, arbitration, investigation or settlement, consent decree or other proceeding (the foregoing referred to herein as an “Indemnity Proceeding”) which is in any way related directly or indirectly to: (i) this Agreement or any other Loan Document or the transactions contemplated thereby; (ii) the making of any Loans or issuance of Letters of Credit hereunder; (iii) any actual or proposed use by the Borrower of the proceeds of the Loans or Letters of Credit; (iv) the Agent’s or any Lender’s entering into this Agreement; (v) the fact that the Agent and the Lenders have established the Facility evidenced by this Agreement and the Loan Documents in favor of the Borrower; (vi) the fact that the Agent and the Lenders are creditors of the Borrower and have or are alleged to have information regarding the financial condition, strategic plans or business operations of the Trust and the Subsidiaries; (vii) the fact that the Agent and the Lenders are material creditors of the Borrower and are alleged to influence directly or indirectly the business decisions or affairs of the Borrower and the other Subsidiaries or their financial condition; (viii) the exercise of any right or remedy the Agent or the Lenders may have under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents; including without limitation, reasonable and documented out‑of‑pocket attorneys and consultant’s fees; (ix) any civil penalty or fine assessed by the OFAC against, and all reasonable costs and expenses (including counsel fees and disbursements) incurred in connection with defense thereof by, the Agent or any Lender as a result of conduct of the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any Subsidiary that violates a sanction administered or enforced by the OFAC; or (x) any violation or non-compliance by the Borrower or any Subsidiary of any Applicable Law (including any Environmental Law) including, but

113



not limited to, any Indemnity Proceeding commenced by (A) the Internal Revenue Service or state taxing authority or (B) any Governmental Authority or other Person under any Environmental Law, including any Indemnity Proceeding commenced by a Governmental Authority or other Person seeking remedial or other action to cause the Trust or its Subsidiaries (or its respective properties) (or the Agent and/or the Lenders as successors to the Borrower) to be in compliance with such Environmental Laws; provided, however, that the Borrower shall not be obligated to indemnify any Indemnified Party for any acts or omissions of such Indemnified Party in connection with matters described in this subsection to the extent that such losses, claims, damages, liabilities or related expenses (A) are determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment to have resulted from the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnified Party or (B) arise from any dispute solely among Indemnified Parties (except in connection with claims or disputes (1) relating to whether the conditions to any Credit Event have been satisfied, (2) with respect to a Defaulting Lender or the determination of whether a Lender is a Defaulting Lender, (3) against the Agent or the Arrangers in their respective capacities as such, or (4) directly resulting from any act or omission on part of the Borrower, any other Loan Party or any other Subsidiary).
(b)    The Borrower’s indemnification obligations under this Section 12.9. shall apply to all Indemnity Proceedings arising out of, or related to, the foregoing whether or not an Indemnified Party is a named party in such Indemnity Proceeding. In this regard, this indemnification shall cover all Indemnified Costs of any Indemnified Party in connection with any deposition of any Indemnified Party or compliance with any subpoena (including any subpoena requesting the production of documents). This indemnification shall, among other things, apply to any Indemnity Proceeding commenced by other creditors of the Borrower or any Subsidiary, any shareholder of the Borrower or any Subsidiary (whether such shareholder(s) are prosecuting such Indemnity Proceeding in their individual capacity or derivatively on behalf of the Borrower), any account debtor of the Borrower or any Subsidiary or by any Governmental Authority. If indemnification is to be sought hereunder by an Indemnified Party, then such Indemnified Party shall notify the Borrower of the commencement of any Indemnity Proceeding; provided, however, that the failure to so notify the Borrower shall not relieve the Borrower from any liability that it may have to such Indemnified Party pursuant to this Section 12.9.
(c)    This indemnification shall apply to any Indemnity Proceeding arising during the pendency of any bankruptcy proceeding filed by or against the Borrower and/or any Subsidiary.
(d)    All out-of-pocket fees and expenses of, and all amounts paid to third-persons by, an Indemnified Party shall be advanced by the Borrower at the request of such Indemnified Party notwithstanding any claim or assertion by the Borrower that such Indemnified Party is not entitled to indemnification hereunder, upon receipt of an undertaking by such Indemnified Party that such Indemnified Party will reimburse the Borrower if it is actually and finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that such Indemnified Party is not so entitled to indemnification hereunder.
(e)    An Indemnified Party may conduct its own investigation and defense of, and may formulate its own strategy with respect to, any Indemnity Proceeding covered by this Section and, as provided above, all Indemnified Costs incurred by such Indemnified Party shall be reimbursed by the Borrower. No action taken by legal counsel chosen by an Indemnified Party in investigating or defending against any such Indemnity Proceeding shall vitiate or in any way impair the obligations and duties of the Borrower hereunder to indemnify and hold harmless each such Indemnified Party; provided, however, that if (i) the Borrower is required to indemnify an Indemnified Party pursuant hereto and (ii) the Borrower has provided evidence reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Party that the Borrower has the financial wherewithal to reimburse such Indemnified Party for any amount paid by such Indemnified Party with respect to such Indemnity Proceeding, such Indemnified Party shall not settle or compromise any such Indemnity Proceeding

114



without the prior written consent of the Borrower (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Notwithstanding the foregoing, an Indemnified Party may settle or compromise any such Indemnity Proceeding without the prior written consent of the Borrower where (x) no monetary relief is sought against such Indemnified Party in such Indemnity Proceeding or (y) there is an allegation of a violation of law by such Indemnified Party.
(f)    If and to the extent that the obligations of the Borrower under this Section are unenforceable for any reason, the Borrower hereby agrees to make the maximum contribution to the payment and satisfaction of such obligations which is permissible under Applicable Law.
(g)    The Borrower’s obligations under this Section shall survive any termination of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the payment in full in cash of the Obligations, and are in addition to, and not in substitution of, any other of their obligations set forth in this Agreement or any other Loan Document to which it is a party.
Section 12.10.     Termination; Survival.
At such time as (a) all of the Commitments have been terminated, (b) all Letters of Credit have terminated or expired or been cancelled (other than Extended Letters of Credit in respect of which the Borrower has satisfied the requirements of Section 2.5.(b)), (c) none of the Lenders or the Swingline Lender is obligated any longer under this Agreement to make any Loans and the Agent is no longer obligated under this Agreement to issue Letters of Credit and (d) all Obligations (other than obligations which survive as provided in the following sentence) have been paid and satisfied in full, this Agreement shall terminate. The indemnities to which the Agent, the Lenders and the Swingline Lender are entitled under the provisions of Sections 3.12., 4.1., 4.4., 11.7., 12.2. and 12.9. and any other provision of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, and the provisions of Section 12.4., shall continue in full force and effect and shall protect the Agent, the Lenders and the Swingline Lender (i) notwithstanding any termination of this Agreement, or of the other Loan Documents, against events arising after such termination as well as before and (ii) at all times after any such party ceases to be a party to this Agreement with respect to all matters and events existing on or prior to the date such party ceased to be a party to this Agreement.
Section 12.11.     Severability of Provisions.
Any provision of this Agreement which is prohibited or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective only to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions or affecting the validity or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction.

THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY, AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPLICABLE TO CONTRACTS EXECUTED, AND TO BE FULLY PERFORMED, IN SUCH STATE (INCLUDING, FOR SUCH PURPOSE, SECTIONS 5-1401 AND 5-1402 OF THE GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK).

information that will allow such Lender or the Agent, as applicable, to identify the Borrower in accordance with such Act and the Beneficial Ownership Regulation.
Section 12.14.     Electronic Delivery of Certain Information.
(a)    Documents required to be delivered pursuant to the Loan Documents shall be delivered by electronic communication and delivery, including, the Internet, e-mail or intranet websites to which the Agent and each Lender have access (including a commercial, third-party website such as www.sec.gov <http://www.sec.gov> or a website sponsored or hosted by the Agent or the Borrower) provided that the foregoing shall not apply to (i) notices to any Lender pursuant to Article II. and (ii) any Lender that has notified the Agent and the Borrower that it cannot or does not want to receive electronic communications. The Agent or the Borrower may, in their discretion, agree to accept notices and other communications to them hereunder by electronic delivery pursuant to procedures approved by them for all or particular notices or communications. Documents or notices delivered electronically shall be deemed to have been delivered twenty-four (24) hours after the date and time on which the Agent or the Borrower posts such documents or the documents become available on a commercial website and the Agent or the Borrower notifies each Lender of said posting and provides a link thereto provided if such notice or other communication is not sent or posted during the normal business hours of the recipient, said posting date and time shall be deemed to have commenced as of 10:00 a.m. Eastern time on the opening of business on the next Business Day for the recipient. Subject to Section 12.8., no Indemnified Party shall be liable for any damages arising from the use by third parties of any information or other materials obtained by such third party through IntraLinks or other similar information transmission systems in connection with this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything contained herein, in every instance the Borrower shall be required to provide paper copies of the certificate required by Section 8.3. to the Agent and shall deliver paper copies of any documents to the Agent or to any Lender that requests such paper copies until a written request to cease delivering paper copies is given by the Agent or such Lender. Except for the certificates required by Section 8.3., the Agent shall have no obligation to request the delivery of or to maintain paper copies of the documents delivered electronically, and in any event shall have no responsibility to monitor compliance by the Borrower with any such request for delivery. Each Lender shall be solely responsible for requesting delivery to it of paper copies and maintaining its paper or electronic documents.
(b)    Documents required to be delivered pursuant to Article II. may be delivered electronically to a website provided for such purpose by the Agent pursuant to the procedures provided to the Borrower by the Agent.
