Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On February 15, 2019, Highlands REIT, Inc. (the “Company”) entered into a Credit Agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) by and among the Company, as borrower, The Huntington National Bank (“HNB”), individually and as administrative agent, issuing lender, lead arranger, book manager and syndication agent, and certain other lenders thereunder.
The Credit Agreement provides for (i) a secured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) with revolving commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $50.0 million, including a letter of credit subfacility for 10% of the then available revolving commitments, and (ii) a secured term loan credit facility (the “Term Loan Facility” and together with the Revolving Credit Facility, the “Credit Facility”) with term loan commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $50.0 million. The Credit Agreement provides that, subject to customary conditions, including obtaining lender commitments and compliance with its financial maintenance covenants under the Credit Agreement, the Company may seek to increase the aggregate lending commitments under the Credit Agreement by up to $100 million, with such increase in total lending commitments to be allocated to increasing the revolving commitments and/or establishing one or more new tranches of term loans at the Company’s request.
The Company currently expects to use borrowings under the Credit Facility for working capital purposes, which may include repayment of indebtedness, capital expenditures, lease up costs, redevelopment costs, property acquisitions and other general corporate purposes.  In connection with entering into the Credit Facility, the Company borrowed $30.0 million under the Term Loan Facility.
The Revolving Credit Facility has a maturity date of February 15, 2022, but can be extended at the Company’s option for two additional one-year periods conditioned on, among other things, payment of a 15-basis points extension fee upon each such extension. The Term Loan Facility has a maturity date of February 15, 2024. The Company is permitted to prepay all or any portion of the loans under the Credit Facility prior to maturity without premium or penalty, subject to reimbursement of any LIBOR breakage costs of the lenders.
The interest rates applicable to loans under the Revolving Credit Facility are, at the Company’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 1.0% to 1.3% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 2.0% to 2.3% per annum based on the debt to assets ratio of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries. The interest rates applicable to loans under the Term Loan Facility are, at the Company’s option, equal to either a base rate plus a margin ranging from 0.9% to 1.2% per annum or LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.9% to 2.2% per annum based on the debt to assets ratio of the Company and its consolidated subsidiaries. In addition, the Company will pay (a) an unused facility fee on the revolving commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility ranging from 0.15% to 0.25% per annum, calculated daily based on the average unused commitments under the Revolving Credit Facility, and (b) with respect to any amount of the Term Loan Facility that remains undrawn during the period beginning thirty (30) days after the execution of the Credit Agreement and ending one year after execution of the Credit Agreement, an unused facility fee of 0.25% per annum, calculated daily based on the undrawn portion of the Term Loan Facility.
The Credit Facility is guaranteed, jointly and severally, by certain subsidiaries of the Company (the “Subsidiary Guarantors”), and is secured by a pledge of equity interests in the Subsidiary Guarantors. The Credit Agreement contains customary covenants that, among other things, restrict, subject to certain exceptions, the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to incur indebtedness, grant liens on their assets, make certain types of investments, engage in acquisitions, mergers or consolidations, sell assets, enter into hedging transactions, enter into certain transactions with affiliates and make distributions. The Credit Agreement requires the Company to comply with financial maintenance covenants to be tested quarterly, including a maximum debt to asset value ratio, a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, a minimum tangible net worth, a maximum variable rate debt to asset value ratio, a prohibition on recourse debt and a maximum amount of cross-collateralized non-recourse debt. The Credit Agreement also contains certain covenants around the value and diversity of the properties owned by the Subsidiary Guarantors. The Credit Agreement also contains certain customary events of default, including the failure to make timely payments under the Credit Facility or other material indebtedness, the failure to satisfy certain covenants and specified events of bankruptcy and insolvency.
The foregoing description of the Credit Facility is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Credit Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
HNB provides certain banking services to the Company for which it receives customary compensation. The lenders under the Credit Facility may, from time to time, engage in transactions with and perform services for the Company and its affiliates in the ordinary course of their business.

§2.    THE CREDIT FACILITY.
§2.1    Commitments to Lend.
(a)    Revolving Credit Facility. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, each of the Revolving Credit Lenders severally agrees to lend on a revolving basis to Borrower on each Drawdown Date prior to the Revolving Credit Maturity Date with respect to each Advance of Revolving Credit Loans occurring on or after the Closing Date up to an aggregate of such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment, as follows:
(i)    Advances. Revolving Credit Loans shall be made in separate Advances from time to time on a Drawdown Date upon delivery of a Loan Request by the Borrower to the Agent given in accordance with §2.5, with each Revolving Credit Lender severally advancing such sums as are requested by the Borrower for the purposes set forth in §2.7; provided, that, in all events after giving effect to such Advance: (A) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing; (B) the Loan Exposure shall not exceed the lesser of the Total Commitment and Pool Property Availability, (C) the Revolving Credit Exposure shall not exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitment, (D) such Loan would not cause a violation of the financial covenants set forth in §9 (calculated on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the proposed Advance and, if applicable, any application of the proceeds of such Advance in connection with any permitted transaction undertaken in connection therewith), and (E) the conditions set forth in §11 have been satisfied both on the date of the request and at the time that the Advance is to be made. The Revolving Credit Loans shall be made ratably by the Revolving Credit Lenders in accordance with each Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage. Each Loan Request for an Advance of Revolving Credit Loans hereunder shall constitute a representation and warranty by the Borrower that all of the conditions set forth in §10 and §11 have been satisfied on the date of such request. No Revolving Credit Lender shall have any obligation to make Revolving Credit Loans to the Borrower such that such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the Revolving Credit Exposure exceeds the principal face amount of its Revolving Credit Commitment. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, no Lender shall fund any portion of any Advance with Plan Assets.
(ii)    Additional Documents. Without limiting the provisions of §2.5, in connection with each Advance related to acquisition of a new Pool Property, the Borrower shall execute and deliver to the Agent and the Lenders all documents and take all other actions required under §5.4, if applicable, in connection therewith and a Compliance Certificate, certifying compliance with §3.2 and the covenants set forth in §9 after giving effect to each requested Advance, and the Borrower shall pay all costs and expenses in connection with each such Advance as required pursuant to §15.
(b)    Term Facility. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, on the Closing Date, each Term Lender severally agrees to make a Term Loan to the Borrower in the aggregate principal amount equal to such Term Lender’s Term Loan Commitment. The Term Loans shall mature on the Term Loan Maturity Date. The initial Advance of the Term Loan shall be $30,000,000 and the remaining Term Loan Commitments of $20,000,000 may be drawn in increments of $10,000,000, in up to two Advances (in addition to the initial Advance) by Borrower’s (x) delivery of a Request for Loan, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit C, to Agent and (y) satisfaction of each of the conditions to an Advance set forth in §11; provided that the Loan Exposure, after giving effect to Borrower’s requested Advance of a Term Loan, shall not exceed the lesser of the Total Commitment and Pool Property Availability. Any amount of the Term Loan that remains undrawn during the period commencing on March 18, 2019 and ending on February 15, 2020 (the “Undrawn Term Loan Commitments”) shall be subject to an unused fee payable in arrears to the Agent for the account of each Term Lender on the last day of such period, computed on a daily basis by multiplying (i) twenty five (25) basis points (0.25%) per annum, expressed as a per diem rate, times (ii) the undrawn portion of the Term Loan Commitments on such day (the “Term Loan Unused Fee”). Borrower shall pay the Term Loan Unused Fee to Administrative Agent on February 15, 2020. Any portion of the Undrawn Term Loan Commitments that remains undrawn as of February 15, 2020, shall thereafter be unavailable for Borrower to draw, and (i) the Term Loan Commitments shall be reduced accordingly, pro rata among the Term Lenders, and (ii) the Term Loan Unused Fee shall no longer accrue on the Undrawn Term Loan Commitments. Following its receipt of any such Term Loan Unused Fee, Agent shall promptly pay to each Term Lender an amount equal to such Term Lender’s Term Loan Commitment Percentage of the daily amount of such Term Loan Unused Fee based on such Term Lender’s Term Loan Commitment on such day. The Borrower may not reborrow any portion of any Term Loan once repaid. Term Loans may be Base Rate Loans or LIBOR Rate Loans, as further provided herein.
(c)    Record. Each Borrower irrevocably authorizes Agent to make or cause to be made, at or about the time of the Drawdown Date of any Loan or the time of receipt of any payment of principal thereof, an appropriate notation on Agent’s Record reflecting the making of such Loan or (as the case may be) the receipt of such payment. The outstanding amount of the Loans set forth on Agent’s Record shall be prima facie evidence of the principal amount thereof owing and unpaid to each Lender, but the failure to record, or any error in so recording, any such amount on Agent’s Record shall not limit or otherwise affect the obligations of the Borrower hereunder or under any Note to make payments of principal of or interest on any Loan when due.
(d)    Notes. The Loans shall, if requested by each Lender, be evidenced by separate promissory notes of the Borrower, in substantially the form of Exhibit A hereto (collectively, the “Revolving Credit Notes”), completed with appropriate insertions. One Note shall be payable to each Lender which so requests the issuance of a Note and its registered assigns in the principal amount equal to such Lender’s Total Commitment or, if less, the outstanding amount of all Loans made by such Lender, plus interest accrued thereon, as set forth below.
§2.2    Intentionally Omitted.
§2.3    Reduction and Termination of the Commitments. The Borrower shall have the right at any time and from time to time upon three (3) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Agent to permanently reduce by $5,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof or to permanently terminate entirely the Revolving Credit Commitments, whereupon the Revolving Credit Commitments of the Revolving Credit Lenders shall be reduced pro rata in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages of the amount specified in such notice or, as the case may be, terminated, any such termination or reduction to be without penalty except as otherwise set forth in §4.7; provided, however, that (a) no such termination or reduction shall be permitted if, after giving effect thereto, the Revolving Credit Exposure would exceed the Revolving Credit Commitments of the Revolving Credit Lenders as so terminated or reduced and (b) in no event shall the Total Revolving Credit Commitment be reduced or terminated in such manner as to cause the Total Revolving Credit Commitment to be less than $10,000,000 except in connection with a cancellation of the entire Revolving Credit Commitments and repayment in full of all Revolving Credit Loans outstanding hereunder. Promptly after receiving any notice from the Borrower delivered pursuant to this §2.3, the Agent will notify the Lenders of the substance thereof. Upon the effective date of any such reduction or termination, the Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the respective accounts of the Lenders the full amount of any unused facility unused fee under §2.10 then accrued on the amount of the reduction. No reduction or termination of the Commitments may be reinstated.
§2.4    Interest on Loans.
(a)    Each Base Rate Loan of a Class shall bear interest, for the period commencing with the Drawdown Date thereof and ending on the date on which such Base Rate Loan is repaid or converted to a LIBOR Rate Loan, at the rate per annum equal to the sum of the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin for Base Rate Loans of such Class.
(b)    Each LIBOR Rate Loan of a Class shall bear interest, for the period commencing with the Drawdown Date thereof and ending on the last day of each Interest Period with respect thereto, at the rate per annum equal to the sum of LIBOR determined for such Interest Period plus the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Rate Loans of such Class.
(c)    The Borrower promises to pay interest on each Loan in arrears on each Interest Payment Date with respect thereto.
(d)    Base Rate Loans and LIBOR Rate Loans of a Class may be converted to Loans of the same Class by of the other Type as provided in §4.1.
(e)    The parties understand that the applicable interest rate for the Loans 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 Borrower (the “Borrower Information”). If it is subsequently determined that any such Borrower Information was materially incorrect (for whatever reason, including 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 different than they should have been had the correct information been timely provided, then, subject to § 4.3(c) such interest rate and such fees for such period shall be automatically recalculated using correct Borrower Information. The Agent shall promptly notify 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. Borrower shall receive a credit or refund of any overpayment within five (5) Business Days after such determination. Any recalculation of interest or fees required by this provision shall survive the termination of this Agreement for a period of 180 days, and this provision shall not in any way limit any of the Agent’s, the Issuing Lender’s or any Lender’s other rights under this Agreement.
(f)    Each Base Rate Loan and LIBOR Rate Loan expresses an initial interest rate and an initial index value to 5 places to the right of the decimal point. This expression is done solely for convenience. The reference sources for the index used by Lender, as stated in this Agreement, may actually quote the index on any given day to as many as 5 places to the right of the decimal point. Therefore, the actual index value used to calculate the interest rate on and the amount of interest due under this Agreement will be to 5 places to the right of the decimal point.
§2.5    Requests for Loans. The Borrower shall give to the Agent written notice executed by an Authorized Officer in the form of Exhibit C hereto (or telephonic notice confirmed in writing in the form of Exhibit C hereto) of each Advance of Revolving Credit Loans requested hereunder (a “Loan Request”) by 1:00 p.m. (Eastern time) one (1) Business Day prior to the proposed Drawdown Date with respect to Base Rate Loans and three (3) Business Days prior to the proposed Drawdown Date with respect to LIBOR Rate Loans. Each Loan Request shall specify with respect to the requested Loan the proposed principal amount of such Loan, the Type of Loan, the initial Interest Period if such Loan is a LIBOR Rate Loan, and the Drawdown Date. Each Loan Request shall be accompanied by a Compliance Certificate evidencing compliance with §3.2 and the financial covenants set forth in §9 (calculated on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the proposed Advance and the application of the proceeds thereof in connection with any permitted transaction undertaken in connection therewith). Promptly upon receipt of any such notice, the Agent shall notify each of the Lenders thereof. Each Loan Request shall be irrevocable and binding on the Borrower and shall obligate the Borrower to accept the Loan requested from the Lenders on the proposed Drawdown Date. The Borrower shall be liable to each Lender for any Breakage Costs of such Lender in the event that they fail to borrow any requested LIBOR Rate Loan. Nothing herein shall prevent the Borrower from seeking recourse against any Lender that fails to advance its proportionate share of a requested Advance as required by this Agreement. Each Loan Request shall be (a) for a Base Rate Loan in a minimum aggregate amount of $100,000; or (b) for a LIBOR Rate Loan in a minimum aggregate amount of $500,000. Unless otherwise approved by Agent, there shall be no more than six (6) LIBOR Rate Loans and one (1) Base Rate Loan outstanding at any one time; provided, however, Agent’s disbursement of more than six (6) LIBOR Rate Loans and one (1) Base Rate Loan shall be deemed approved by Agent of such Loans.
§2.6    Funds for Loans.
(a)    Not later than 11:00 a.m. (Eastern time) on the proposed Drawdown Date of any Advance of Loans of any Class, each of the Lenders of such Class will make available to the Agent, at the Agent’s Head Office, in immediately available funds, the amount of such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of the amount of the requested Loans of such Class which may be disbursed pursuant to §2.1. Upon receipt from each such Lender of such amount, and upon receipt of the documents required by §2.5 and the satisfaction of the other conditions set forth in §11, to the extent applicable, the Agent will make available to the Borrower the aggregate amount of such Loans made available to the Agent by the Lenders of such Class by crediting such amount to the account of the Borrower maintained at the Agent’s Head Office. The failure or refusal of any Lender to make available to the Agent at the aforesaid time and place on any Drawdown Date the amount of its Applicable Percentage of the requested Loans shall not relieve any other Lender from its several obligation hereunder to make available to the Agent the amount of such other Lender’s Applicable Percentage of any requested Loans, including any additional Loans that may be requested subject to the terms and conditions hereof to provide funds to replace those not advanced by the Lender so failing or refusing to make its pro rata share of any requested Advance of Loans of any Class. In the event of any such failure or refusal, the Lenders of such Class not so failing or refusing shall be entitled to a priority secured position as against the Lender or Lenders of such Class so failing or refusing to make available to the Borrower the amount of its or their Applicable Percentage for such Loans as provided in §12.5.
(b)    Unless the Agent shall have been notified by any Lender prior to the applicable Drawdown Date that such Lender will not make available to Agent such Lender’s Applicable Percentage of a proposed Advance of Loans of such Class, Agent may in its discretion assume that such Lender has made such Loan available to Agent in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement and the Agent may, if it chooses, in reliance upon such assumption make such Loans available to the Borrower, and such Lender shall be liable to the Agent for the amount of such Advance. If such Lender does not pay such corresponding amount upon the Agent’s demand therefor, the Agent will promptly notify the Borrower, and the Borrower shall promptly pay such corresponding amount to the Agent. The Agent shall also be entitled to recover from the Lender or the Borrower (without duplication), as the case may be, interest on such corresponding amount in respect of each day from the date such corresponding amount was made available by the Agent to the Borrower to the date such corresponding amount is recovered by the Agent at a per annum rate equal to (i) from the Borrower at the applicable rate for such Loan or (ii) from a Lender at the Fed Funds Rate.
§2.7    Use of Proceeds. The Borrower and their Subsidiaries will use the proceeds of the Loans solely to (a) pay closing costs in connection with this Agreement; (b) repay existing Indebtedness, (c) fund acquisitions of Real Estate, (d) fund capital and construction expenditures, tenant improvements, leasing commissions and property and equipment acquisitions; and (e) for general working capital and other general corporate purposes, including distributions with respect to Equity Interests, but excluding direct advances for the payment of any interest due hereunder.
§2.8    Letters of Credit.
(a)    Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, at any time and from time to time from the Closing Date through the day that is thirty (30) Business Days prior to the Revolving Credit Maturity Date, the Issuing Lender shall issue such Letters of Credit denominated in Dollars as the Borrower may request upon the delivery of a written request in the form of Exhibit C‑1 hereto (a “Letter of Credit Request”) to the Issuing Lender, provided that, after giving effect thereto (i) no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, (ii) upon issuance of such Letter of Credit, the Outstanding amount of Letter of Credit Liabilities shall not exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit, (iii) the aggregate outstanding Loans and Letter of Credit Liabilities shall not exceed the Total Commitment, (iv) the Revolving Credit Exposure shall not exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitments, (v) such Letter of Credit would not cause a violation of the financial covenants set forth in §9 (calculated on a pro forma basis after giving effect to the proposed Advance and the application of the proceeds thereof in connection with any permitted transaction undertaken in connection therewith), (vi) the conditions set forth in §11 shall have been satisfied at the time that the Letter of Credit is to be issued or extended, (vii) no Revolving Credit Lender is a Defaulting Lender (provided Issuing Lender may, in its sole discretion, be entitled to waive this condition), unless the Issuing Lender has entered into arrangements, including the delivery of cash collateral, satisfactory to the Issuing Lender (in its sole discretion) with the Borrower or such Defaulting Lender to eliminate the Issuing Lender’s actual or potential Fronting Exposure with respect to the Defaulting Lender arising from either the Letter of Credit then proposed to be issued or that Letter of Credit and all other Letter of Credit Liabilities as to which the Issuing Lender has actual or potential Fronting Exposure, as it may elect in its sole discretion, and (viii) in no event shall any amount drawn under a Letter of Credit be available for reinstatement or a subsequent drawing under such Letter of Credit. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this §2.8, the Issuing Lender shall not be obligated to issue, amend, extend, renew or increase any Letter of Credit at a time when any other Lender is a Defaulting Lender, unless the Issuing Lender is satisfied that the participation therein will otherwise be fully allocated to the Lenders that are Non-Defaulting Lenders consistent with §2.12(c) and the Defaulting Lender shall have no participation therein, except to the extent the Issuing Lender has entered into arrangements with the Borrower or such Defaulting Lender which are satisfactory to the Issuing Lender in its good faith determination to eliminate the Issuing Lender’s Fronting Exposure with respect to any such Defaulting Lender, including the delivery of cash collateral. The Issuing Lender may assume that the conditions in §11 have been satisfied unless it receives written notice from a Lender that such conditions have not been satisfied. Each Letter of Credit Request shall be executed by an Authorized Officer of Borrower. The Issuing Lender shall be entitled to conclusively rely on such Person’s authority to request a Letter of Credit on behalf of Borrower. The Issuing Lender shall have no duty to verify the authenticity of any signature appearing on a Letter of Credit Request. The Borrower assume all risks with respect to the use of the Letters of Credit. Unless the Issuing Lender shall otherwise consent, in its sole discretion, the term of any Letter of Credit shall not exceed a period of time commencing on the issuance of the Letter of Credit and ending one year after the date of issuance thereof (provided that the consent of the Required Lenders shall be required if such period would exceed two years after the issuance date of such Letter of Credit), subject to extension pursuant to an “evergreen” clause reasonably acceptable to Agent and Issuing Lender (but in any event the term shall not extend beyond thirty (30) days prior to the Revolving Credit Maturity Date) unless the Borrower have provided to Agent cash collateral reasonably acceptable to the Agent in an amount equal to the Letter of Credit Liability with respect to any Letter of Credit which extends beyond thirty (30) days prior to the Maturity Date. The amount available to be drawn under any Letter of Credit shall reduce on a dollar-for-dollar basis the amount available to be drawn under the Total Revolving Credit Commitment as a Revolving Credit Loan.
(b)    Each Letter of Credit Request shall be submitted to the Issuing Lender at least five (5) Business Days (or such shorter period as the Issuing Lender may approve) prior to the date upon which the requested Letter of Credit is to be issued. Each such Letter of Credit Request shall contain (i) a statement as to the purpose for which such Letter of Credit shall be used (which purpose shall be in accordance with the terms of this Agreement), and (ii) a certification by an Authorized Officer or the chief financial or chief accounting officer of the Borrower that the Borrower are and will be in compliance with all covenants under the Loan Documents after giving effect to the issuance of such Letter of Credit. The Borrower shall further deliver to the Issuing Lender such additional applications (which application as of the date hereof is in the form of Exhibit F attached hereto) and documents as the Issuing Lender may reasonably require, in conformity with the then standard practices of its letter of credit department, in connection with the issuance of such Letter of Credit; provided that in the event of any conflict, the terms of this Agreement shall control.
(c)    The Issuing Lender shall, subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement, issue the Letter of Credit on or before five (5) Business Days following receipt of the documents last due pursuant to §2.8(b). Each Letter of Credit shall be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Issuing Lender in its reasonable discretion.
(d)    Upon the issuance of a Letter of Credit, each Revolving Credit Lender shall be deemed to have purchased a participation therein from Issuing Lender in an amount equal to its respective Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the amount of such Letter of Credit. No Revolving Credit Lender’s obligation to participate in a Letter of Credit shall be affected by any other Revolving Credit Lender’s failure to perform as required herein with respect to such Letter of Credit or any other Letter of Credit.
(e)    Upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, and on each anniversary of such date of issuance until the final expiration or termination of such Letter of Credit, the Borrower shall pay to the Issuing Lender, for its own account, a Letter of Credit fronting fee with respect to each Letter of Credit, in an annual amount equal to a fee of 0.125%, computed on the face amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. In addition, the Borrower shall pay to the Agent, for the account of the Lenders (including the Issuing Lender) in accordance with their respective percentage shares of participation in such Letter of Credit, a Letter of Credit fee calculated at the rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin then applicable to Revolving Credit LIBOR Rate Loans on the amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit. Such Letter of Credit fees shall be payable in quarterly installments in arrears with respect to each Letter of Credit on the fifth day of each calendar quarter following the date of issuance and continuing on each quarter or portion thereof thereafter, as applicable, or on any earlier date on which the Commitments shall terminate and on the expiration or return of any Letter of Credit. In addition, the Borrower shall pay to Issuing Lender for its own account within ten (10) Business Days of demand of Issuing Lender the standard issuance, documentation and service charges of Issuing Lender.
(f)    In the event that any amount is drawn under a Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof, unless the amount of such draw is otherwise immediately repaid by the Borrower, the Borrower shall reimburse the Issuing Lender by having such amount drawn treated as an outstanding Revolving Credit Base Rate Loan under this Agreement (Borrower being deemed to have requested a Revolving Credit Base Rate Loan on such date in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing and such amount drawn shall be treated as an outstanding Revolving Credit Base Rate Loan under this Agreement, except that such amount drawn shall not count towards the limit on the number of Base Rate Loans set forth herein) and the Agent shall promptly notify each Revolving Credit Lender by telex, telecopy, telegram, telephone (confirmed in writing) or other similar means of transmission, and each Revolving Credit Lender shall promptly and unconditionally pay to the Agent, for the Issuing Lender’s own account, an amount in Dollars equal to such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of such Letter of Credit (to the extent of the amount drawn). If and to the extent any Revolving Credit Lender shall not make such amount available on the Business Day on which such draw is funded, such Revolving Credit Lender agrees to pay such amount to the Agent forthwith on demand, together with interest thereon, for each day from the date on which such draw was funded until the date on which such amount is paid to the Agent, at the Fed Funds Rate until three (3) days after the date on which the Agent gives notice of such draw and at the Fed Funds Rate plus one percent (1.0%) for each day thereafter. Further, such Revolving Credit Lender shall be deemed to have assigned any and all payments made of principal and interest on its Revolving Credit Loans, amounts due with respect to its participations in Letters of Credit and any other amounts due to it hereunder to the Agent to fund the amount of any drawn Letter of Credit which such Revolving Credit Lender was required to fund pursuant to this §2.8(f) until such amount has been funded (as a result of such assignment or otherwise). In the event of any such failure or refusal, the Revolving Credit Lenders not so failing or refusing shall be entitled to a priority secured position for such amounts as provided in §12.5. The failure of any Revolving Credit Lender to make funds available to the Agent in such amount shall not relieve any other Revolving Credit Lender of its obligation hereunder to make funds available to the Agent pursuant to this §2.8(f). Nothing herein shall limit the Borrower’s obligation to reimburse the Issuing Lender for any draws and disbursements made in respect of any Letter of Credit on the same Business Day when any such draw or disbursement is made. If Borrower shall have received notice of such draw or disbursement prior to 11:00 AM, Cleveland time, on such date, or, if such notice has not been received by Borrower prior to such time on such date, then the Business Day immediately following the day that Borrower receives such notice. If a draw or disbursement with respect to a Letter of Credit is reimbursed by the making of Loans hereunder, the Borrower’s obligation to pay the amount of such draw or disbursement to the Issuing Lender shall be automatically converted into an obligation to pay the resulting Loans in accordance with the terms and provisions hereof.
(g)    If after the issuance of a Letter of Credit pursuant to §2.8(c) by the Issuing Lender, but prior to the funding of any portion thereof by a Revolving Credit Lender, for any reason a drawing under a Letter of Credit cannot be refinanced as a Revolving Credit Loan, each Revolving Credit Lender will, on the date such Revolving Credit Loan pursuant to §2.8(f) was to have been made, purchase an undivided participation interest in the Letter of Credit in an amount equal to its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage of the amount of such Letter of Credit. Each Revolving Credit Lender will immediately transfer to the Issuing Lender in immediately available funds the amount of its participation and upon receipt thereof the Issuing Lender will deliver to such Revolving Credit Lender a Letter of Credit participation certificate dated the date of receipt of such funds and in such amount.
(h)    Whenever at any time after the Issuing Lender has received from any Revolving Credit Lender any such Revolving Credit Lender’s payment of funds under a Letter of Credit and thereafter the Issuing Lender receives any payment on account thereof, then the Issuing Lender will distribute to such Revolving Credit Lender its participation interest in such amount (appropriately adjusted in the case of interest payments to reflect the period of time during which such Revolving Credit Lender’s participation interest was outstanding and funded); provided, however, that in the event that such payment received by the Issuing Lender is required to be returned, such Revolving Credit Lender will return to the Issuing Lender any portion thereof previously distributed by the Issuing Lender to it.
(i)    The issuance of any supplement, modification, amendment, renewal or extension to or of any Letter of Credit shall be treated in all respects the same as the issuance of a new Letter of Credit.
(j)    Borrower assumes all risks of the acts, omissions, or misuse of any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof. Neither Agent, Issuing Lender nor any Lender will be responsible for (i) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any Letter of Credit or any document submitted by any party in connection with the issuance of any Letter of Credit, even if such document should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged; (ii) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect 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 any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit to comply fully with the conditions required in order to demand payment under a Letter of Credit; (iv) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex, telecopy, email, or otherwise; (v) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (vi) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document or draft required by or from a beneficiary in order to make a disbursement under a Letter of Credit or the proceeds thereof; (vii) for the misapplication by the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; and (viii) for any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of Agent or any Lender, none of the foregoing will affect, impair or prevent the vesting of any of the rights or powers granted to Agent, Issuing Lender or the Lenders hereunder. In furtherance and extension and not in limitation or derogation of any of the foregoing, any act taken or omitted to be taken by Agent, Issuing Lender or the other Lenders in good faith will be binding on Borrower and will not put Agent, Issuing Lender or the other Lenders under any resulting liability to Borrower; provided nothing contained herein shall relieve Issuing Lender, Agent or any Lender for liability to Borrower arising as a result of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of Issuing Lender, Agent or any Lender as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment; further provided, that the foregoing shall not be construed to excuse the Issuing Lender from liability to Borrower to the extent of any direct damages (as opposed to special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages, claims in respect of which are hereby waived by Borrower to the extent permitted by applicable law) suffered by Borrower that are caused by the Issuing Lender’s failure to exercise care when determining whether drafts and other documents presented under a Letter of Credit comply with the terms thereof.
(k)    In connection with the issuance of any letters of credit under this Agreement, Borrower shall indemnify and hold Issuing Lender harmless from any loss, cost, expense or liability, including payments made by Issuing Lender and expenses and reasonable out-of-pocket attorneys' fees incurred by Issuing Lender arising out of, or in connection with, any Letter of Credit to be issued or created for a Borrower. Borrower shall be bound by Lender's regulations and good faith interpretations of any Letter of Credit it issues to Borrower, although this interpretation may be different from their own; and, neither Issuing Lender nor any of its correspondents shall be liable for any error, negligence, or mistakes, whether of omission or commission, in following any Borrower's instructions or those contained in any Letter of Credit or of any modifications, amendments or supplements thereto or in issuing or paying any Letter of Credit.
(l)    In connection with all letters of credit issued by Issuing Lender under this Agreement, Borrower hereby appoints Issuing Lender, or its designee, as its attorney, with full power and authority upon the occurrence of an Event of Default, (i) to sign and/or endorse Borrower's name upon any warehouse or other receipts, Letter of Credit applications and acceptances; (ii) to sign Borrower's name on bills of lading; (iii) to clear Inventory through the United States of America Customs Department in the name of Borrower or Issuing Lender or Issuing Lender's designee, and to sign and deliver to officials of such customs department powers of attorney in the name of Borrower for such purpose; and (iv) to complete in Borrower's name or Issuing Lender's, or in the name of Issuing Lender's designee, any order, sale or transaction, obtain the necessary documents in connection therewith, and collect the proceeds thereof. Neither Issuing Lender nor its attorneys will be liable for any acts or omissions or for any error of judgment or mistakes of fact or law. This power, being coupled with an interest, is irrevocable as long as any Letters of Credit remain outstanding.
(m)    Immediately upon the request of Issuing Lender, (i) after the occurrence of an Event of Default, or (ii) if any Letter of Credit remains outstanding after five (5) Business Days prior to the Maturity Date, in each such case, Borrower will deposit and maintain in an account with Issuing Lender in cash, as cash collateral, in an amount equal to one hundred five percent (105%) of the aggregate amount of the outstanding Letters of Credit. In each case, Borrower hereby irrevocably authorize Issuing Lender, in its sole discretion, on Borrower's behalf and in Borrower's name, to open such an account and to make and maintain deposits in such account or in an account opened by Borrower, in any amount required to be made by Borrower, out of the proceeds of Accounts or other Collateral, from an Advance, or out of any other funds of Borrower coming into Issuing Lender's possession at any time. Any net return on such cash or investments shall be credited to such account and constitute additional cash collateral. Borrower may not withdraw any amount credited to any such account, except upon payment and performance in full of all Obligations and termination of this Agreement.
(n)    Notwithstanding any term, provision, condition or covenant contained herein, while any Event of Default exists, no Lender shall be required to issue, and Borrower shall not be entitled to request the issuance of, a Letter of Credit.
§2.9    Extension of Maturity Dates. The Borrower shall have the right and option to extend the Revolving Credit Maturity Date for a one year period to February 15, 2023 (the “First Revolving Extension Option”), and if the Revolving Credit Maturity Date is extended to February 15, 2023 pursuant to the First Revolving Extension Option, Borrower shall have the right and option to extend the Revolving Credit Maturity Date for an additional one year period to February 15, 2024 (the “Second Revolving Extension Option”; the First Revolving Extension Option and Second Revolving Extension Option are each a “Revolving Extension Option”), each Revolving Extension Option is conditioned on Borrower’s satisfaction of the following conditions precedent:
(a)    Extension Request. The Borrower shall deliver written notice of such request to exercise a Revolving Extension Option (the “Revolving Extension Request”) to the Agent not earlier than the date which is one hundred twenty (120) days, and not later than the date which is thirty (30) days prior to the then applicable Revolving Credit Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such requested extension).
(b)    Payment of Extension Fee. The Borrower shall pay to the Agent for the pro rata accounts of the Revolving Credit Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitments an extension fee in an amount equal to fifteen (15) basis points of the Total Revolving Credit Commitment on the applicable Revolving Credit Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such extension). Each such fee shall be due prior to the then applicable Revolving Credit Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such extension) and, so long as the Revolving Extension Request is effective to extend the Revolving Credit Maturity Date, such extension fee will be fully earned and non-refundable under any circumstances.
(c)    No Default. On the date each Revolving Extension Request is given and on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such extension) there shall exist no Default or Event of Default, and, without limiting the generality of the forgoing, on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such extension) the Borrower shall be in compliance with §3.2 and the financial covenants set forth in §9 determined as of the then Revolving Credit Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such extension).
(d)    Representations and Warranties. The representations and warranties made by the Credit Parties in the Loan Documents shall be true and correct in all material respects (except to the extent any such representations or warranty is qualified by materiality or reference to Material Adverse Effect, in which case such representations or warranty shall be true and correct in all respects) on the applicable Revolving Credit Maturity Date (as determined without regard to such extension) (it being understood and agreed that any representation or warranty which by its terms is made as of a specified date shall be required to be true and correct only as of such specified date).
§2.10    Facility Unused Fee. From the date hereof until the payment in full in cash of all Indebtedness under this Agreement and the Notes, the Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent for the account of the Revolving Credit Lenders (other than any Defaulting Lender) in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages, a facility unused fee calculated at the rate per annum as set forth below on the average daily amount by which the Total Revolving Credit Commitment exceeds the aggregate of the Outstanding principal amount of Revolving Credit Loans and the face amount of Letters of Credit Outstanding during each calendar quarter or portion thereof commencing on the date hereof and ending on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date. The facility unused fee shall be calculated for each day based on the ratio (expressed as a percentage) of (a) the actual daily amount of the Outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans during such quarter to (b) the Total Revolving Credit Commitment, and if such ratio is less than or equal to fifty percent (50%), the facility unused fee shall be payable at the rate of 0.25% per annum, and if such ratio is greater than fifty percent (50%), the facility unused fee shall be payable at the rate of 0.15% per annum. In addition to the foregoing, the facility unused fee shall otherwise be computed in the same manner as in § 2.4. Whenever any payment of the facility unused fee shall be due on a day which is not a Business Day, the date for payment thereof shall be extended to the next Business Day. It is expressly understood that the facility unused fee herein described shall not be refundable under any circumstances. The facility unused fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the third (3rd) day of each calendar quarter for the immediately preceding calendar quarter or portion thereof, and on any earlier date on which the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be reduced or shall terminate as provided in §2.3, with a final payment on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date.
§2.11    Increase in Total Commitment.
(a)    Provided that no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this §2.11, the Borrower shall have the option at any time and from time to time before the date that is at least thirty (30) days prior to a subject Maturity Date to request an increase in the Total Commitment to not more than TWO HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS ($200,000,000.00) in the aggregate, which increase shall be allocated at the Borrower’s request to the Revolving Credit Commitments or the Term Loan Commitments or one or more tranches new term loan commitments (the “New Term Loan Commitments”), by giving written notice to the Agent (an “Increase Notice”; and the amount of such requested increase is the “Commitment Increase”), provided that any such individual increase must be in a minimum amount of $25,000,000 and incremental amounts of $5,000,000 in excess thereof. Upon receipt of any Increase Notice, the Agent shall consult with Arrangers and shall notify the Borrower of the amount of facility fees to be paid to any Lenders who provide an additional Commitment in connection with such increase in the Total Commitment (which shall be in addition to the fees to be paid to Agent or Arrangers pursuant to the Agreement Regarding Fees). If the Borrower agree to pay the facility fees so determined, then the Agent promptly shall send a notice to all Lenders (the “Additional Commitment Request Notice”) informing them of the Borrower’s request to increase the Total Commitment and of the facility fees to be paid with respect thereto and, with respect to any New Term Loan Commitments, the proposed terms thereof. Each Lender who desires to provide an additional Commitment upon such terms shall provide Agent with a written commitment letter specifying the amount of the additional Commitment which it is willing to provide prior to such deadline as may be specified in the Additional Commitment Request Notice. If the requested increase is oversubscribed then the Agent and the Arrangers shall allocate the Commitment Increase among the Lenders who provide such commitment letters on such basis mutually acceptable to each of the Borrower, Agent and Arrangers. If the additional Commitments so provided by the Lenders are not sufficient to provide the full amount of the Commitment Increase requested by the Borrower, then the Agent and the Arrangers shall use best effort to, and Borrower may, but shall not be obligated to, invite one or more banks or lending institutions (which banks or lending institutions shall be reasonably acceptable to Agent, Arrangers and the Borrower) to become a Lender and provide an additional Commitment. The Agent shall provide all Lenders with a notice setting forth the amount, if any, of the additional Commitment to be provided by each Lender and the revised Commitment Percentages which shall be applicable after the effective date of the Commitment Increase specified therein (the “Commitment Increase Date”). In no event shall any Lender be obligated to provide an additional Commitment.
(b)    The Borrower may elect to effect any Commitment Increase by requesting one more tranches of New Term Loan Commitments and New Term Loans. The New Term Loan Commitments shall be effected pursuant to one or more New Term Loan Amendments executed and delivered by the Borrower, the New Term Loan Lenders, as applicable, and the Agent. The terms and provisions of any New Term Loan Commitments and any New Term Loans, including the pricing, maturity, fees payable, and other terms thereof, shall be as agreed by the Agent and the Borrower and set forth in the applicable New Term Loan Amendment; provided that, without the prior written consent of all other Lenders, no New Term Loan shall (A) have a New Term Loan Maturity that is earlier than the Term Loan Maturity Date (including any extensions thereof), (B) require scheduled amortization of the loans under such New Term Loan prior to the Term Loan Maturity Date but may permit voluntary prepayment (subject to sub-clause (C) hereof), and (C) rank higher than pari passu in right of payment and with respect to security with all Revolving Credit Loans and any existing Term Loans or have different borrower or guarantors as the Borrower and Guarantors with respect to all other Revolving Credit Loans, Term Loans, and any New Term Loans. Except as set forth in the immediately prior sentence with respect to the New Term Loan Maturity, no Lender that is not a New Term Loan Lender with respect to such tranche of New Term Loans shall have any consent rights with respect to the terms of such New Term Loans set forth in such New Term Loan Amendment so long as such terms are in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. Each New Term Loan Amendment may, without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as are consistent with this §2.11 and may be necessary or appropriate, in the opinion of the Agent, to effect the provisions of this §2.11 with respect thereto. On any Increased Amount Date on which any New Term Loan Commitments are effected, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing terms and conditions, (i) each New Term Loan Lender shall make a Loan to the Borrower (a “New Term Loan”) in an amount equal to its New Term Loan Commitment, and (ii) each New Term Loan Lender shall become a Lender hereunder with respect to the New Term Loan Commitment and the New Term Loans made pursuant thereto.
(c)    On any Commitment Increase Date which result in an increase in the Revolving Credit Commitments, the outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Credit Loans shall be reallocated among the Revolving Credit Lenders such that after the applicable Commitment Increase Date the outstanding principal amount of Revolving Credit Loans owed to each Revolving Credit Lender shall be equal to such Revolving Credit Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage (as in effect after the applicable Commitment Increase Date) of the outstanding principal amount of all Revolving Credit Loans. The participation interests of the Revolving Credit Lenders in Letters of Credit shall be similarly adjusted. On any Commitment Increase Date those Revolving Credit Lenders whose Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage is increasing shall advance the funds to the Agent and the funds so advanced shall be distributed among the Revolving Credit Lenders whose Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage is decreasing as necessary to accomplish the required reallocation of the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans. The funds so advanced shall be Revolving Credit Base Rate Loans until converted to Revolving Credit LIBOR Rate Loans which are allocated among all Revolving Credit Lenders based on their Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages.
(d)    Upon the effective date of each increase in the Total Commitment pursuant to this §2.11 the Agent may unilaterally revise Schedule 1.1 to reflect the Lenders and Commitments as of the effective date of such increase in the Total Commitment, and the Borrower shall, if requested by such Lender, execute and deliver to the Agent new Notes for each Lender whose Commitment has changed or who has provided a new Commitment so that the principal amount of such Lender’s Note shall equal its aggregate Commitment. The Agent shall deliver such replacement Notes to the respective Lenders in exchange for the Notes replaced thereby which shall be surrendered by such Lenders. Such new Notes shall provide that they are replacements for the surrendered Notes and that they do not constitute a novation, shall be dated as of the Commitment Increase Date and shall otherwise be in substantially the form of the replaced Notes.
(e)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any increase in the Total Commitment pursuant to this §2.11 shall be conditioned upon satisfaction or waiver of the following conditions precedent which must be satisfied or waived prior to the effectiveness of any increase of the Total Commitment:
(i)    Payment of Activation Fee. The Borrower shall pay (A) to the Agent those fees described in and contemplated by the Agreement Regarding Fees or New Term Loan Amendment with respect to the applicable Commitment Increase, and (B) to the Arrangers such facility fees as the Lenders who are providing an additional Commitment may require, as provided in § 2.11(a) to increase the aggregate Commitment, which fees shall, when paid, be fully earned and non-refundable under any circumstances. The Arrangers shall pay to the Lenders acquiring the increased Commitment certain fees pursuant to their separate agreement; and
(ii)    No Default. On the date any Increase Notice is given and on the date such increase becomes effective, both immediately before and after the Total Commitment is increased, no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing; and
(iii)    Representations True. The representations and warranties made by the Credit Parties in the Loan Documents shall be true and correct on the date of any such Increase Notice and on the date the Total Commitment is increased (unless such representations are limited by their terms to a specific date in which case they shall be required to be true and correct only as of such specified date), both immediately before and after the Total Commitment is increased; and
(iv)    Additional Documents and Expenses. The Borrower shall execute and deliver to Agent and the Lenders such additional documents (including amendments to the Security Documents), instruments, certifications and opinions as the Agent may reasonably require, including a Compliance Certificate, demonstrating compliance with all covenants set forth in the Loan Documents after giving effect to the increase, and the Borrower shall pay the cost of any updated UCC searches and any and all intangible taxes or other’ taxes, assessments or charges or any similar fees, taxes or reasonable and documented out-of-pocket expenses in accordance with §15 which are reasonably requested by the Agent in connection with such increase.
§2.12    Defaulting Lenders.
(a)    If for any reason any Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender, then, in addition to the rights and remedies that may be available to the Agent or the Borrower under this Agreement or Applicable Law, such Defaulting Lender’s right to participate in the administration of the Loans, this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, including without limitation, any right to vote in respect of, to consent to or to direct any action or inaction of the Agent or to be taken into account in the calculation of the Required Lenders, or all of the Lenders, shall be, except as specifically provided in §28, suspended during the pendency of such failure or refusal. If a Lender is a Defaulting Lender because it has failed to make timely payment to the Agent of any amount required to be paid to the Agent hereunder (without giving effect to any notice or cure periods), in addition to other rights and remedies which the Agent or the Borrower may have under the immediately preceding provisions or otherwise, the Agent shall be entitled (i) to collect interest from such Defaulting Lender on such delinquent payment for the period from the date on which the payment was due until the date on which the payment is made at the Fed Funds Rate, (ii) to withhold or setoff and to apply in satisfaction of the defaulted payment and any related interest, any amounts otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan Document and (iii) to bring an action or suit against such Defaulting Lender in a court of competent jurisdiction to recover the defaulted amount and any related interest. Any amounts received by the Agent in respect of a Defaulting Lender’s Loans shall be applied as set forth in §2.12(d).
(b)    Any Non-Defaulting Lender may, but shall not be obligated, in its sole discretion, to acquire all or a portion of a Defaulting Lender’s Commitments. Any Lender desiring to exercise such right shall give written notice thereof to the Agent and the Borrower no sooner than two (2) Business Days and not later than five (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 Commitments in proportion to the Commitments of the other Lenders exercising such right. If after such fifth (5th) Business Day, the Lenders have not elected to purchase all of the Commitments of such Defaulting Lender, then the Borrower (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists) or the Required Lenders may, by giving written notice thereof to the Agent, such Defaulting Lender and the other Lenders, demand that such Defaulting Lender assign its Commitments to an eligible assignee subject to and in accordance with the provisions of §18.1 for the purchase price provided for below. 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, and any such demand with respect to which the conditions specified in §18.1 have been satisfied, 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) shall terminate on the date of purchase, and the Defaulting Lender shall promptly execute all documents reasonably requested to surrender and transfer such interest to the purchaser or assignee thereof, including an appropriate assignment and acceptance agreement (the “Assignment and Acceptance Agreement”). The purchase price for the Commitments 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 plus any accrued but unpaid interest thereon and accrued but unpaid fees. 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 §2.12(d).
(c)    During any period in which there is a Revolving Credit Lender that is Defaulting Lender, all or any part of such Defaulting Lender’s obligation to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit pursuant to §2.8(d) shall be reallocated among the Revolving Credit Lenders that are Non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Commitment Percentages (computed without giving effect to the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Defaulting Lender; provided that (i) each such reallocation shall be given effect only if, at the date the applicable Revolving Credit Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, no Default or Event of Default exists, (ii) the conditions set forth in §11 are satisfied at the time of such reallocation (and, unless the Borrower shall have notified the Agent at such time, the Borrower shall be deemed to have represented and warranted that such conditions are satisfied at the time), and (iii) the aggregate obligation of each Revolving Credit Lender that is a Non-Defaulting Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit shall not exceed the positive difference, if any, of (A) the Revolving Credit Commitment of that Non-Defaulting Lender minus (B) the Revolving Credit Exposure held by such Lender in accordance with its Revolving Credit Commitment Percentage. Subject to §35, 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.
(d)    Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, or otherwise, and including any amounts made available to the Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to §13), 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 such Defaulting Lender to the Agent (other than with respect to Letter of Credit Liabilities) hereunder; second, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Issuing Lender (with respect to Letter of Credit Liabilities); third, if so determined by the Agent or requested by the Issuing Lender, to be held as cash collateral for future funding obligations of such Defaulting Lender of any participation in any Letter of Credit; fourth, 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 such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Agent; fifth, if so determined by the Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a non-interest bearing deposit account and released pro rata in order to (x) satisfy obligations of such Defaulting Lender to fund Loans or participations under this Agreement and (y) be held as cash collateral for future funding obligations of such Defaulting Lender of any participation in any Letter of Credit; sixth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Agent or the Lenders (including the Issuing Lender) as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Agent or any Lender (including the Issuing Lender) against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, so long as no Default or Event of Default 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 such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and eighth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (i) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans or funded participations in Letters of Credit in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share and (ii) such Loans or funded participations in Letters of Credit were made at a time when the conditions set forth in §10 and §11, to the extent required by this Agreement, were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and funded participations in Letters of Credit owed to, all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis until such time as all Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with their applicable Commitment Percentages without regard to §2.12(c) prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or funded participations in Letters of Credit owed to, such Defaulting Lender. Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post cash collateral pursuant to this §2.12(d)) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto, and to the extent allocated to the repayment of principal of the Loan, shall not be considered outstanding principal under this Agreement.
(e)    Within five (5) Business Days of demand by the Issuing Lender from time to time, the Borrower shall deliver to the Agent for the benefit of the Issuing Lender cash collateral in an amount sufficient to cover all Fronting Exposure with respect to the Issuing Lender (after giving effect to §2.8(a) and §2.12(c)) on terms satisfactory to the Issuing Lender in its good faith determination (and such cash collateral shall be in Dollars). Any such cash collateral shall be deposited in the Collateral Account as collateral (solely for the benefit of the Issuing Lender) for the payment and performance of each Defaulting Lender’s pro rata portion in accordance with their respective Commitment Percentages of outstanding Letter of Credit Liabilities. Moneys in the Collateral Account deposited pursuant to this section shall be applied by the Agent to reimburse the Issuing Lender immediately for each Defaulting Lender’s pro rata portion in accordance with their respective Commitment Percentages of any funding obligation with respect to a Letter of Credit which has not otherwise been reimbursed by the Borrower or such Defaulting Lender.
(f)    (1)    Each Revolving Credit Lender that is a Defaulting Lender shall not be entitled to receive any facility unused fee pursuant to §2.10 for any period during which that Revolving Credit Lender is a Defaulting Lender.
(i)    Each Revolving Credit Lender that is a Defaulting Lender shall not be entitled to receive Letter of Credit fees pursuant to §2.8 for any period during which that Revolving Credit Lender is a Defaulting Lender.
(ii)    With respect to any facility unused fee or Letter of Credit fees not required to be paid to any Defaulting Lender pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) above, the Borrower shall (x) pay to each Non-Defaulting Lender that is a Revolving Credit Lender that portion of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s participation in Letter of Credit Liabilities that has been reallocated to such Non-Defaulting Lender pursuant to §2.12(c), (y) pay to the Issuing Lender the amount of any such fee otherwise payable to such Defaulting Lender to the extent allocable to the Issuing Lender’s Fronting Exposure to such Defaulting Lender and (z) not be required to pay any remaining amount of any such fee.
(g)    If the Borrower and the Agent agree in writing in their sole discretion that a Defaulting Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender, the Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their applicable Commitments (without giving effect to §2.12(c)), whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while such 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 such Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.
§2.13    Pro Rata Treatment.
(a)    As provided elsewhere herein, all Revolving Credit Lenders’ interests in the Revolving Credit Loans, all interests of the Term Lenders in the Term Loans, all interests of the New Term Loan Lenders of a Class in the New Term Loans of such Class, and all Lenders’ interests in the Loan Documents shall be ratable undivided interests and none of such Lenders’ interests shall have priority over the others. Each payment delivered to the Agent for the account of any Lender or amount to be applied or paid by the Agent to any Lender shall be paid promptly by the Agent to such Lender in the same type of funds that the Agent received at such Lender’s address specified pursuant to §20. In the event Borrower fails to make any payment when due, the Agent is hereby authorized to charge the account of the Borrower maintained with HNB for each payment of principal, interest and fees as it becomes due hereunder.
(b)    Except to the extent otherwise explicitly provided in this Agreement: (a) each borrowing from the Revolving Credit Lenders under §§ 2.1(a) and 2.8(f) shall be made from the Revolving Credit Lenders, each payment of the fees under §§ 2.10 and 2.8(e) shall be made for the account of the Revolving Credit Lenders, and each termination or reduction of the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments under §2.3 shall be applied to the respective Revolving Credit Commitments of the Revolving Credit Lenders, pro rata according to the amounts of their respective Revolving Credit Percentages; (b) each payment or prepayment of principal of Revolving Credit Loans shall be made for the account of the Revolving Credit Lenders pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid principal amounts of the Revolving Credit Loans held by them, provided that, subject to §2.12, if immediately prior to giving effect to any such payment in respect of any Revolving Credit Loans the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans shall not be held by the Revolving Credit Lenders pro rata in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Percentages in effect at the time such Revolving Credit Loans were made, then such payment shall be applied to the Revolving Credit Loans in such manner as shall result, as nearly as is practicable, in the outstanding principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans being held by the Revolving Credit Lenders pro rata in accordance with such respective Revolving Credit Percentages; (c) each payment or prepayment of principal of Term Loans shall be made for the account of the Term Lenders pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid principal amounts of the Term Loans held by them, (d) the making of any New Term Loans under §2.11 shall be made from the applicable New Term Loan Lenders, pro rata according to the amounts of their respective commitments for such New Term Loans; (e) each payment or prepayment of principal of New Term Loans of a Class shall be made for the account of the New Term Loan Lenders of such Class pro rata in accordance with the respective unpaid principal amounts of the New Term Loans of such Class held by them; (f) each payment of interest on Loans of a Class shall be made for the account of the Lenders of such Class pro rata in accordance with the amounts of interest on such Loans then due and payable to the respective Lenders of such Class; (g) the Conversion and Continuation of Loans of a particular Class and Type shall be made pro rata among the Lenders of such Class according to the amounts of their respective Loans of such Class, and the then current Interest Period for each Lender’s portion of each such Loan of such Type shall be coterminous; (h) [reserved]; and (i) the Revolving Credit Lenders’ participation in, and payment obligations in respect of, Letters of Credit under §2.8, shall be in accordance with their respective Revolving Credit Percentages.
§3.    REPAYMENT OF THE LOANS.
§3.1    Maturity. The Borrower shall repay to the Revolving Credit Lenders on the Revolving Credit Maturity Date the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Credit Loans outstanding on such date. The Borrower shall repay to the Term Lenders on the Term Loan Maturity Date the aggregate principal amount of Term Loans outstanding on such date. The Borrower shall repay to the applicable New Term Loan Lenders on each New Term Loan Maturity Date the aggregate principal amount of the applicable New Term Loans outstanding on such date.
§3.2    Mandatory Prepayments. In the event (x) the Loan Exposure shall at any time exceed the lesser of the Pool Property Availability or Total Commitment, or (y) the Revolving Credit Exposure shall at any time exceed the Total Revolving Credit Commitments, the Borrower shall make a prepayment to Agent in the amount of such excess without penalty or premium within five (5) Business Days of the occurrence of such excess, together with any additional amounts payable pursuant to §4.8, with any such prepayment pursuant to this §3.2 being first applied to the Revolving Credit Exposure and then ratably to the Term Loans and New Term Loans in accordance with the provisions hereof (as amended by any the applicable New Term Loan Amendment).
§3.3    Optional Prepayments.
(a)    Each Borrower shall have the right, at its election, to prepay the outstanding amount of the Loans of any Class, as a whole or in part, at any time without penalty or premium; provided, that if any prepayment of the outstanding amount of any LIBOR Rate Loans pursuant to this §3.3 is made on a date that is not the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto, such prepayment shall be accompanied by the payment of any amounts due pursuant to §4.7.
(b)    The Borrower shall give the Agent, no later than 1:00 p.m. (Eastern time) at least one (1) Business Day prior written notice of any prepayment pursuant to this §3.3, in each case specifying the proposed date of prepayment of the Loans, the Class of Loans to be prepaid, and the principal amount to be prepaid (provided that (i) any such notice may be revoked or modified upon one (1) Business Day’s prior notice to the Agent and/or (ii) any such notice or repayment may be conditioned upon the consummation of a transaction).
§3.4    Partial Prepayments. Each partial prepayment of the Loans of any Class under §3.3 shall in a minimum amount of $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof and be accompanied by the payment of accrued interest on the principal prepaid to the date of payment. Each partial payment under §3.2 and §3.3 shall be applied as instructed by Borrower or, in the absence of instruction by the Borrower, to the principal of the Revolving Credit Loans (and with respect to each Type of Loans, first to the principal of Base Rate Loans, and then to the principal of LIBOR Rate Loans), and then to the Term Loans and New Term Loans in accordance with the terms hereof.
§3.5    Effect of Prepayments. Amounts of the Revolving Credit Loans prepaid or repaid hereunder may be reborrowed subject to the terms hereof; amounts of the Term Loans or New Term Loans prepaid or repaid hereunder may not be reborrowed. No repayment or prepayment of the Loans pursuant to this Section shall affect any of the Credit Parties’ obligations under any Derivative Contracts entered into with respect to the Loans.
§4.    CERTAIN GENERAL PROVISIONS.
§4.1    Continuation and Conversion Options.
(a)    The Borrower may elect from time to time, by delivery to Agent of a Conversion/Continuation Request, to convert any of its outstanding Loans of any Class to a Loan of the same Class but of another Type and such Loans shall thereafter bear interest as a Base Rate Loan or a LIBOR Rate Loan, as applicable; provided that (i) with respect to any such conversion of a LIBOR Rate Loan to a Base Rate Loan, the Borrower shall give the Agent at least one (1) Business Day’s prior written notice of such election, and such conversion shall only be made on the last day of the Interest Period with respect to such LIBOR Rate Loan unless Borrower pays Breakage Costs as required under this Agreement; (ii) with respect to any such conversion of a Base Rate Loan to a LIBOR Rate Loan or any continuation of a LIBOR Rate Loan, Borrower shall give the Agent at least three (3) Business Days’ prior written notice of such election and the Interest Period requested for such Loan, the principal amount of the Loan to be so converted or continued shall be in a minimum aggregate amount of $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $250,000 in excess thereof, and, after giving effect to the making of such Loan, there shall be no more than six (6) LIBOR Rate Loans and one (1) Base Rate Loan outstanding at any one time; (iii) no Loan may be converted into or continued as a LIBOR Rate Loan when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; and (iv) unless otherwise specified herein, no conversion from a LIBOR Rate Loan to a Base Rate Loan may be made other than at the end of the applicable Interest Period. All or any part of the outstanding Loans of a Class of any Type may be converted as provided herein, provided that no partial conversion shall result in a Base Rate Loan in a principal amount of less than $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $250,000 or a LIBOR Rate Loan in a principal amount of less than $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $250,000. Each Conversion/Continuation Request relating to the conversion of a Base Rate Loan to a LIBOR Rate Loan or a continuation of a LIBOR Rate Loan shall be irrevocable by the Borrower.
(b)    Any LIBOR Rate Loan of any Class may be continued as such Type and such Class upon the expiration of an Interest Period with respect thereto by compliance by the Borrower with the terms of §4.1; provided that no LIBOR Rate Loan may be continued as such when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, but shall be automatically converted to a Base Rate Loan on the last day of the Interest Period relating thereto ending during the continuance of any Event of Default.
(c)    In the event that the Borrower does notify the Agent of its election hereunder with respect to any LIBOR Rate Loan, such Loan shall be automatically continued at the end of the applicable Interest Period as a LIBOR Rate Loan for an Interest Period of the one-month, two-month, three-month, or six-month LIBOR period initially selected by Borrower unless such Interest Period shall be greater than the time remaining until the Maturity Date or if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, in which case such Loan shall be automatically converted to a Base Rate Loan at the end of the applicable Interest Period.
(d)    The Agent shall promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of the interest rate applicable to each LIBOR Rate Loan upon determination thereof.
§4.2    Fees. In addition to all fees specified herein, the Borrower agrees to pay to HNB certain fees for services rendered or to be rendered in connection with the Loans as provided pursuant to a fee letter dated as of November 29, 2018 between the Borrower and HNB (the “Agreement Regarding Fees”).
§4.3    Funds for Payments.
(a)    All payments of principal, interest, facility fees, closing fees and any other amounts due hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents shall be made to the Agent, for the respective accounts of the Lenders and the Agent, as the case may be, at the Agent’s Head Office, not later than 11:00 a.m. (Eastern time) on the day when due (or such later time as is acceptable to the Agent in the event of a payment in full of all Loans prior to the Maturity Date and a termination of Commitments hereunder), in each case in lawful money of the United States in immediately available funds to ensure credit on the due date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Borrower authorizes Agent to debit that certain deposit account that Borrower maintains with Agent on each Interest Payment Date, amounts due to Agent and the Lenders hereunder pursuant to §2.4(c), as and when such amounts are due. All payments received by Agent after 11:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) shall be deemed received on the next succeeding Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue. To the extent not already paid pursuant to the preceding sentences, the Agent is hereby authorized to charge, after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, the accounts of the Borrower with HNB, on the dates when the amount thereof shall become due and payable, with the amounts of the principal of and interest on the Loans and all fees, charges, expenses and other amounts owing to the Agent and/or the Lenders under the Loan Documents. Subject to the foregoing, all payments made to Agent on behalf of the Lenders, and actually received by Agent, shall be deemed received by the Lenders on the date actually received by Agent. The Agent will promptly distribute to each Lender its Commitment Percentage (or other applicable share as provided herein) of such payment in like funds as received by wire transfer to such in accordance with §2.13. If and to the extent Agent shall not make such payments to a Lender when due as set forth in the preceding sentence, then such unpaid amounts shall accrue interest, payable by Agent, at the Fed Funds Rate from the due date until (but not including) the date on which Agent makes such payments to such Lender. If any payment hereunder is due on a day that is not a Business Day, then payment will be due on the next Business Day; provided, however, that if the next Business Day occurs in the following calendar month, then the payment shall be due on the immediately preceding Business Day.
(b)    Prior to a Default under this Agreement, payments shall be applied first to interest, then to principal, then to any fees or other amounts due and owing to any Lender in connection with the Loan. After a Default under this Agreement, payments may be applied, at Agent’s option, as follows: first to any collection costs or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), then to any late charges or other fees owing under the Loan Documents, then to accrued interest, then to principal. To the extent that Borrower makes a payment or any Lender receives any payment or proceeds of the Collateral for Borrower’s benefit, which are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside or required to be repaid to a trustee, debtor in possession, receiver, custodian or any other party under any bankruptcy law, common law or equitable cause, then, to such extent, the Obligations or part thereof intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continue as if such payment or proceeds had not been received by such Lender.
(c)    If, as a result of any restatement of or other adjustment to the financial statements of Borrower or for any other reason, Borrower or Lender reasonably determines that (i) the Consolidated Leverage Ratio as calculated by Borrower as of any applicable date was inaccurate and (ii) a proper calculation of the Consolidated Leverage Ratio would have resulted in higher pricing for such period, Borrower shall immediately and retroactively be obligated to pay to each Lender, as applicable, promptly on demand by Agent (or, after the occurrence of an actual or deemed entry of an order for relief with respect to Borrower under any bankruptcy or insolvency law, automatically and without further action by Agent or any Lender), an amount equal to the excess of the amount of interest and fees that should have been paid for such period over the amount of interest and fees actually paid for such period.
(d)    All payments by the Loan Parties hereunder and under any of the other Loan Documents shall be made without setoff or counterclaim, and free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for any Taxes, except as required by Applicable Law. If any Applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Withholding Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with Applicable Law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the Borrower or other applicable Guarantor shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this §4.3(d)) the applicable Recipient receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.
(e)    Without duplication of any obligation under §4.3(d), the Borrower and the Guarantors 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.
(f)    Without duplication of any obligation under §4.3(d) or (e), the Borrower and the Guarantors shall jointly and severally indemnify each Recipient, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this §4.3(f)) payable or paid by such Recipient or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Recipient and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower by a Lender (with a copy to the Agent), or by the Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error; provided that the determinations in such statement are made on a reasonable basis and in good faith.
(g)    Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower or a Guarantor has not already indemnified the Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower and the Guarantors to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of §18.4 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.
(h)    As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Borrower or any Guarantor to a Governmental Authority pursuant to §4.3, such Borrower or such Guarantor shall deliver to the Agent following the written request of 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.
(i)    (j) 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, and at the time or times prescribed by Applicable Law, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent or prescribed by Applicable Law 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.
(i)    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, an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Agent) of an executed IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E establishing an exemption from, or reduction of, U.S. federal withholding Tax pursuant to the “interest” article of such tax treaty and (y) with respect to any other applicable payments under any Loan Document, IRS Form W‑8BEN or W-8BEN-E 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)    an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Agent) of an executed IRS Form W-8ECI;
(III)    in the case of a Foreign Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-1 to the effect that such Foreign Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, a “10 percent shareholder” of the Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E; or
(IV)    to the extent a Foreign Lender is not the beneficial owner, an electronic copy (or an original if requested by the Borrower or the Agent) of an executed IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W‑8BEN-E, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-2 or Exhibit G-3, IRS Form W‑9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Lender is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit G-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;
(C)    any Foreign Lender shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the 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), 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 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 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.
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.
(k)    Each Agent that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrower two properly completed and duly signed originals of IRS Form W-9 with respect to fees received on its own behalf, certifying that such Agent is exempt from federal backup withholding. Each Agent that is not a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrower two properly completed and duly signed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI with respect to fees received on its own behalf and, in the case of an Agent with respect to payments received on account of any Lender, two properly completed and duly signed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY (or successor form) certifying that the Agent is either (a) a “qualified intermediary” assuming primary withholding responsibility under Chapters 3 and 4 of the Code and primary Form 1099 reporting and backup withholding responsibility for payments it receives for the accounts of others, or (b) a “U.S. branch” and that the payments it receives for the account of others are not effectively connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States, and in each of clause (a) and (b), that the Agent 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 United States Treasury Regulation Section 1.1441-1(b)(2)(iv)(A)), with the effect that the Borrower can make payments to the Agent without deduction or withholding of any Taxes imposed by the United States.
(l)    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 §4.3 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to §4.3), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under §4.3 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable third party out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party actually incurred and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this subsection (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this subsection, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this subsection the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund has not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts with respect to such Tax had never been paid. This subsection shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it reasonably deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(m)    Each party’s obligations under §4.3 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.
(n)    The obligations of the Borrower to the Lenders under this Agreement (and of the Revolving Credit Lenders to make payments to the Issuing Lender with respect to Letters of Credit) shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid and performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, under all circumstances whatsoever, including the following circumstances: (i) any lack of validity or enforceability of this Agreement, any Letter of Credit, or any other Loan Document; (ii) any improper use which may be made of any Letter of Credit or any improper acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee of any Letter of Credit in connection therewith; (iii) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or any right which the Borrower or any of their Subsidiaries or Affiliates may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of any Letter of Credit (or persons or entities for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting) or the Lenders (other than the defense of payment to the Lenders in accordance with the terms of this Agreement) or any other person, whether in connection with any Letter of Credit, this Agreement, any other Loan Document, or any unrelated transaction; (iv) any draft, demand, certificate, statement or any other documents presented under any Letter of Credit proving to be insufficient, forged, fraudulent or invalid in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect whatsoever; (v) any breach of any agreement between Borrower or any of their Subsidiaries or Affiliates and any beneficiary or transferee of any Letter of Credit; (vi) any irregularity in the transaction with respect to which any Letter of Credit is issued, including any fraud by the beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit; (vii) payment by the Issuing Lender under any Letter of Credit against presentation of a sight draft, demand, certificate or other document which does not comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit, provided that such payment shall not have constituted gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the Issuing Lender as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment; (viii) any non-application or misapplication by the beneficiary of a Letter of Credit of the proceeds of such Letter of Credit; (ix) the legality, validity, form, regularity or enforceability of the Letter of Credit; (x) the failure of any payment by Issuing Lender to conform to the terms of a Letter of Credit (if, in Issuing Lender’s good faith judgment, such payment is determined to be appropriate); (xi) the surrender or impairment of any security for the performance or observance of any of the terms of any of the Loan Documents; (xii) the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default; and (xiii) any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, provided that nothing contained herein shall relieve any Lender for liability to Borrower arising as a result of gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of such Lender, as applicable, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final non-appealable judgment.
§4.4    Computations. Interest on the unpaid principal balance of Loans and of other fees to the extent applicable is computed on a 365/360 basis; that is, by applying the ratio of the interest rate over a year of 360 days, multiplied by the outstanding principal balance, multiplied by the actual number of days the principal balance is outstanding. Any reference in this Agreement to a “per annum” rate shall be based on a year of 360 days. The Outstanding Loans and Outstanding Letter of Credit Liabilities as reflected on the records of the Agent from time to time shall be considered prima facie evidence of such amount absent manifest error.
§4.5    Suspension of LIBOR Rate Loans.
(a)    In the event that, prior to the commencement of any Interest Period relating to any LIBOR Rate Loan, the Agent shall determine that adequate and reasonable methods do not exist for ascertaining LIBOR for such Interest Period, or the Agent shall reasonably determine that LIBOR will not accurately and fairly reflect the cost of the Lenders making or maintaining LIBOR Rate Loans for such Interest Period, the Agent shall forthwith give notice of such determination (which shall be conclusive absent manifest error) to the Borrower and the Lenders. In such event (i) any Loan Request with respect to a LIBOR Rate Loan shall be automatically withdrawn and shall be deemed a request for a Base Rate Loan; (ii) each LIBOR Rate Loan will automatically, on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto, become a Base Rate Loan, and the obligations of the Lenders to make LIBOR Rate Loans shall be suspended until the Agent determines that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, whereupon the Agent shall so notify the Borrower and the Lenders and (iii) the cap with respect to the number of Base Rate Loans set forth herein shall be of no further force or effect.
(b)    If at any time the Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) the circumstances set forth in clause (a) have arisen and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary or (ii) the circumstances set forth in clause (a) have not arisen but the supervisor for the administrator of the LIBOR Screen Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which LIBOR Screen Rate 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 to LIBOR 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, and 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 applicable. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in §28.1, 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 notice of such alternate rate of interest is provided to the Lenders, a written notice from the Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such amendment. Until an alternate rate of interest shall be determined in accordance with this clause (b) (but, in the case of the circumstances described in clause (ii) of the first sentence of this § 4.5(b), only to the extent LIBOR Screen Rate 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 Rate 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; (2) if any Notice of Borrowing requests a LIBOR Rate Loan, such Loan shall be made as Base Rate Loan and (3) the cap with respect to the number of Base Rate Loans set forth herein shall be of no further force or effect..
§4.6    Illegality. Notwithstanding any other provisions herein, if any Change in Law shall make it unlawful, or any central bank or other Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over a Lender or its LIBOR Lending Office shall assert that it is unlawful, for any Lender to make or maintain LIBOR Rate Loans, such Lender shall forthwith give notice of such circumstances to the Agent and Borrower thereupon (a) the commitment of the Lenders to make LIBOR Rate Loans shall forthwith be suspended and (b) the LIBOR Rate Loans then outstanding shall be converted automatically to Base Rate Loans on the last day of such Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Rate Loans or within such earlier period as may be required by law . In the event that on any date Agent shall have reasonably determined that accruing interest hereunder based upon LIBOR has become unlawful by compliance by Agent in good faith with any law, governmental rule, regulation or order, then in any such event, Agent shall promptly give notice thereof to Borrower and thereafter, the cap with respect to the number of Base Rate Loans set forth herein shall be of no further force or effect. In such case, interest shall accrue hereunder at a variable rate of interest per annum, which shall change in the manner set forth below, equal to percentage points in excess of the Prime Commercial Rate. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if the circumstances of the first sentence of this paragraph occur and Borrower has the ability to request advances hereunder based on interest rates other than LIBOR, then Borrower shall repay any advances based on LIBOR with advances under one of the other rates available to Borrower hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon request by the Borrower, the Lender shall use commercially reasonable efforts to designate a different lending office if such designation will void the need for giving such notice and will not, in the reasonable judgment of Lender, subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense or be otherwise disadvantageous to Lender or increase any costs payable by Borrower hereunder.
§4.7    Additional Interest. If any LIBOR Rate Loan or any portion thereof is repaid or is converted to a Base Rate Loan for any reason on a date which is prior to the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Rate Loan, or if repayment of the Loans has been accelerated as provided in §12.1, or if the Borrower fails to draw down on the first day of the applicable Interest Period any amount as to which the Borrower has elected a LIBOR Rate Loan, the Borrower will pay to the Agent upon demand for the account of the applicable Lenders in accordance with their respective Commitment Percentages, in addition to any amounts of interest otherwise payable hereunder, the Breakage Costs. Borrower understands, agrees and acknowledges the following: (i) no Lender has any obligation to purchase, sell and/or match funds in connection with the use of LIBOR as a basis for calculating the rate of interest on a LIBOR Rate Loan: (ii) Borrower has accepted LIBOR as a reasonable and fair basis for calculating such rate and any Breakage Costs. Borrower further agrees to pay the Breakage Costs, if any, whether or not a Lender elects to purchase, sell and/or match funds.
§4.8    Additional Costs, Etc. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, if any Change in Law shall:
(a)    subject any Lender or the Agent to any Taxes (other than for Indemnified Taxes, Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of Excluded Taxes, and Connection Income Taxes) with respect to this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, such Lender’s Commitment, a Letter of Credit or the Loans or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto, or
(b)    [reserved],
(c)    impose or increase or render applicable any special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge, reserve, assessment, liquidity, capital adequacy or other similar requirements (whether or not having the force of law and which are not already reflected in any amounts payable by Borrower hereunder) against assets held by, or deposits in or for the account of, or loans by, or commitments of an office of any Lender, or
(d)    impose on any Lender any other conditions, cost or expense (other than Taxes), or requirements with respect to this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, the Loans, or the Letters of Credit,
and the result of any of the foregoing is:
(i)    to increase the cost to any Lender of making, funding, issuing, renewing, extending or maintaining any of the Loans, the Letters of Credit or such Lender’s Commitment, or
(ii)    to reduce the amount of principal, interest or other amount payable to any Lender or any other Recipient hereunder on account of any of the Loans or the Letters of Credit or the Commitments, or
(iii)    to require any Lender or other Recipient to make any payment or to forego any interest or other sum payable hereunder, the amount of which payment or foregone interest or other sum is calculated by reference to the gross amount of any sum receivable or deemed received by such Lender from the Borrower hereunder,
then, and in each such case, the Borrower will, within thirty (30) days of demand made by such Lender or other Recipient at any time and from time to time and as often as the occasion therefor may arise, pay to such Lender such additional amounts as such Lender or other Recipient shall reasonably determine in good faith to be sufficient to compensate such Lender for such additional cost, reduction, payment or foregone interest or other sum. Each Lender and other Recipient in determining such amounts may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods generally applied by such Lender. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to this §4.8 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this §4.8 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than nine months prior to the date that such Lender, as the case may be, notifies the Borrower of the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions, and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the nine-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).
§4.9    Capital Adequacy. In the event that any Lender reasonably determines that by reason of (a) any change arising after the date of this Agreement affecting the interbank eurocurrency market or affecting the position of such Lender with respect to such market, adequate and fair means do not exist for ascertaining the applicable interest rates by reference to which LIBOR then being determined is to be fixed, (b) any change arising after the date of this Agreement in any applicable law or governmental rule, regulation or order (or any interpretation thereof, including the introduction of any new law or governmental rule, regulation or order), or (c) any other circumstance affecting such Lender or the interbank eurocurrency market (such as, but not limited to, official reserve requirements required by Regulation D of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System), LIBOR, plus the Applicable Margin, shall not represent the effective cost to such Lender of funding or maintaining amounts accruing interest based upon LIBOR, then, and in any such event, the accrual of interest based upon LIBOR shall be suspended until such Lender shall notify Borrower that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist, and beginning on the date of such suspension, interest shall accrue at a variable rate of interest per annum, which shall change in the manner set forth below, equal to 1% in excess of the Prime Commercial Rate. In the event that on any date Lender shall have reasonably determined that accruing interest hereunder based upon LIBOR has become unlawful by compliance by Lender in good faith with any law, governmental rule, regulation or order, then in any such event, Lender shall promptly give notice thereof to Borrower. In such case, interest shall accrue hereunder at a variable rate of interest per annum, which shall change in the manner set forth below, equal to percentage points in excess of the Prime Commercial Rate. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, if the circumstances of the first sentence of this paragraph occur, then Borrower shall repay any advances based on LIBOR with advances under the Base Rate.
§4.10    Breakage Costs. The Borrower shall pay all Breakage Costs required to be paid by them pursuant to this Agreement and incurred from time to time by any Lender within fifteen (15) days from receipt of written notice from Agent.
§4.11    Default Interest; Late Charge. Following the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default and at the written request of the Required Lenders, and regardless of whether or not the Agent or the Lenders shall have accelerated the maturity of the Loans, all Loans shall bear interest payable on demand at a rate per annum equal to three percent (3.0%) above the interest rate that would otherwise be in effect hereunder (the “Default Rate”), until such amount shall be paid in full (after as well as before judgment) and the fee payable with respect to Letters of Credit shall be increased to a rate equal to three percent (3.0%) above the Letter of Credit fee that would otherwise be applicable to such time, or if any of such amounts shall exceed the maximum rate permitted by law, then at the maximum rate permitted by law. In addition, the Borrower shall pay a late charge equal to three percent (3.0%) of any amount of interest and/or principal payable on the Loans (other than amounts due on the Maturity Date or as a result of acceleration), which is not paid by the Borrower within ten (10) days of the date when due but not including the final balloon payment of principal due on the Loan.
§4.12    Certificate. A certificate setting forth any amounts payable pursuant to §4.7, §4.8, §4.9, §4.10 or §4.11 and a reasonably detailed explanation of such amounts which are due, submitted by any Lender or the Agent to the Borrower, shall be prima facie evidence of the amount due, absent manifest error. Lender shall be entitled to reimbursement under §4.8 or §4.9 from and after notice to Borrower that such amounts are due given in accordance with §4.8 or §4.9 and for a period of nine (9) months prior to receipt of such notice (except that, if the Change in Law or other circumstance giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the nine-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).
§4.13    Limitation on Interest. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents to the contrary, all agreements between or among the Borrower, the Lenders and the Agent, whether now existing or hereafter arising and whether written or oral, are hereby limited so that in no contingency, whether by reason of acceleration of the maturity of any of the Obligations or otherwise, shall the interest contracted for, charged or received by the Lenders exceed the maximum amount permissible under Applicable Law. If, from any circumstance whatsoever, interest would otherwise be payable to the Lenders in excess of the maximum lawful amount, the interest payable to the Lenders shall be reduced to the maximum amount permitted under Applicable Law; and if from any circumstance the Lenders shall ever receive anything of value deemed interest by Applicable Law in excess of the maximum lawful amount, an amount equal to any excessive interest shall be applied to the reduction of the principal balance of the Obligations and to the payment of interest or, if such excessive interest exceeds the unpaid balance of principal of the Obligations, such excess shall be refunded to the Borrower. All interest paid or agreed to be paid to the Lenders shall, to the extent permitted by Applicable Law, be amortized, prorated, allocated and spread throughout the full period until payment in full of the principal of the Obligations (including the period of any renewal or extension thereof) so that the interest thereon for such full period shall not exceed the maximum amount permitted by Applicable Law. 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 §2.4. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties hereto further agree and stipulate that all agency fees, syndication fees, arrangement fees, amendment fees, extension fees, up-front fees, commitment fees, facility fees, closing fees, letter of credit fees, underwriting fees, prepayment 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, or any other similar amounts 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. This Section shall control all agreements between or among the Borrower, the Lenders and the Agent
§4.14    Certain Provisions Relating to Increased Costs and Non-Funding Lenders. If a Lender gives notice of the existence of the circumstances set forth in §4.6 or any Lender requests compensation for any losses or costs to be reimbursed pursuant to any one or more of the provisions of §4.3 (as a result of the Borrower being required to pay Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or to any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender), §4.8 or §4.9, then, upon the request of the Borrower, such Lender, as applicable, shall use reasonable efforts in a manner consistent with such institution’s practice in connection with loans like the Loan of such Lender to eliminate, mitigate or reduce amounts that would otherwise be payable by Borrower under the foregoing provisions, provided that such action would not be otherwise materially prejudicial to such Lender (as determined by such Lender in its sole and absolute discretion), including by designating another of such Lender’s offices, branches or affiliates; the Borrower agreeing to pay all reasonably incurred costs and expenses incurred by such Lender in connection with any such action within ten (10) days of written demand of such Lender. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, and if any Lender (a) has given notice of the existence of the circumstances set forth in §4.6 or has requested payment or compensation for any losses or costs to be reimbursed pursuant to any one or more of the provisions of §4.3 (as a result of the Borrower being required to pay Indemnified Taxes or additional amounts to any Lender or to any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender), §4.8 or §4.9 and following the request of Borrower has been unable to take the steps described above to mitigate such amounts (each, an “Affected Lender”) or (b) has failed to make available to Agent its pro rata share of any Loan or its participation in any Letter of Credit Liability, and such failure has not been cured (a “Non-Funding Lender”), then, within thirty (30) days after such notice or request for payment or compensation or failure to fund, as applicable, Borrower shall have the right as to such Affected Lender or Non-Funding Lender, as applicable, to be exercised by delivery of written notice delivered to the Agent and the Affected Lender or Non-Funding Lender, within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice or failure to fund, as applicable, to elect to cause the Affected Lender or Non-Funding Lender, as applicable, to transfer its Commitment. The Agent shall promptly notify the remaining Lenders that each of such Lenders shall have the right, but not the obligation, to acquire a portion of the Commitment, pro rata based upon their relevant Commitment Percentages, of the Affected Lender or Non-Funding Lender, as applicable (or if any of such Lenders does not elect to purchase its pro rata share, then to such remaining Lenders in such proportion as approved by the Agent). In the event that the Lenders do not elect to acquire all of the Affected Lender’s or Non-Funding Lender’s Commitment, then the Agent shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a new Lender to acquire such remaining Commitment. Upon any such purchase of the Commitment of the Affected Lender or Non-Funding Lender, as applicable, the Affected Lender’s or Non-Funding Lender’s interest in the Obligations and its rights hereunder and under the Loan Documents shall terminate at the date of purchase, and the Affected Lender or Non-Funding Lender, as applicable, shall promptly execute all documents reasonably requested to surrender and transfer such interest, including an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, with the Agent being granted a power of attorney by each Affected Lender to executed documents on behalf of each such Affected Lender if such Affected Lender shall refuse to execute any documents in accordance with the terms hereof. The purchase price for the Affected Lender’s or Non-Funding Lender’s Commitment shall equal any and all amounts outstanding and owed by Borrower to the Affected Lender or Non-Funding Lender, as applicable, including principal, prepayment premium or fee, and all accrued and unpaid interest or fees.
§5.    COLLATERAL SECURITY.
§5.1    Collateral. The Obligations and the Hedge Obligations shall be secured by a perfected first priority lien and security interest to be held by the Agent for the benefit of the Lenders and the Lender Hedge Providers on the Collateral, pursuant to the terms of the Security Documents.
§5.2    Additional Guarantors/Pledge. Upon the formation by the Borrower of any new Material Subsidiary or upon any Subsidiary of the Borrower becoming a Material Subsidiary, such Subsidiary shall become an Additional Guarantor hereunder, and the Pledge shall be amended to grant a lien on the Equity Interests in such Additional Guarantor. The Borrower shall execute, and cause such Additional Guarantor (and any other Subsidiary which holds a direct Equity Interests in such Additional Guarantor) to execute and deliver a Joinder Agreement and other documents as the Agent may reasonably request to effect the requirements of this §5.2. For the avoidance of doubt, no Excluded Subsidiary shall become an Additional Guarantor.
§5.3    Release. Provided no Default or Event of Default shall have occurred hereunder and be continuing (or would exist immediately after giving effect to the transactions contemplated by this §5.3), the Agent shall release a Guarantor from the Guaranty and the Equity Interests in such Guarantor from the lien or security title of the Security Documents upon the request of the Borrower subject to and upon satisfaction of each of the following terms and conditions:
(a)    The Borrower shall have provided the Agent with written notice of their intention to release the Guarantor no later than five (5) Business Days’ prior to the date on which such release is to be effected, together with such financial information and documentation respecting the proposed sale or refinancing of such Real Estate as the Agent may reasonably request;
(b)    The Borrower shall submit to the Agent with such request a Compliance Certificate prepared using the financial statements of the Borrower most recently provided or required to be provided to the Agent under §6.4 or §7.4 adjusted in the good faith estimate of the Borrower to give effect to the proposed release and demonstrating that no Default or Event of Default with respect to the covenants referred to therein shall exist after giving effect to such release;
(c)    All release documents to be executed by the Agent shall be in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Agent; and
(d)    The Borrower shall pay all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses of the Agent in connection with such release, including reasonable out-of-pocket attorney’s fees, to the extent required under §15.
§5.4    Addition of Pool Properties in Connection with Advances.
(a)    For so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, the Borrower shall be entitled to add any Eligible Real Estate as a Pool Property upon satisfaction of each of the conditions set forth in the definition of “Eligible Real Estate,” provided Borrower has complied with all of the conditions set forth in §5.4. At least seven (7) Business Days prior to each proposed addition of a proposed Pool Property, the Borrower shall have first provided to Agent: (x) notice of the proposed addition and (y) the Eligible Real Estate Qualification Documents, that, as indicated on Schedule 1.2, are due on such date, and (z) a Compliance Certificate after giving effect to such addition.
(b)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event any Real Estate proposed to be included as a Pool Property does not qualify as Eligible Real Estate or otherwise does not meet the conditions in this §5.4, such Real Estate may be included as a Pool Property so long as the Agent shall have received the prior written consent of the Agent and the Required Lenders in their sole discretion to the inclusion of such Real Estate as a Pool Property.
(c)    As a condition precedent to inclusion of Eligible Real Estate as a Pool Property, the Borrower shall also satisfy the following conditions precedent with respect to each such Real Estate:

(k)    any of the Loan Documents shall be canceled, terminated, revoked or rescinded otherwise than in accordance with the terms hereof or thereof or the express prior written agreement, consent or approval of the Required Lenders, or any action at law, suit in equity or other legal proceeding to cancel, revoke or rescind any of the Loan Documents shall be commenced by or on behalf of any of the Credit Parties, or any court or any other Governmental Authority or agency of competent jurisdiction shall make a determination, or issue a judgment, order, decree or ruling, to the effect that any one or more of the Loan Documents is illegal, invalid or unenforceable in accordance with the terms thereof;
(l)    any dissolution, termination, partial or complete liquidation, merger or consolidation of any of the Credit Parties or any of the Subsidiaries of a Borrower shall occur or any sale, transfer or other disposition of the assets of any of the any of the Credit Parties or any of the Subsidiaries shall occur, in each case of any of the foregoing, in violation of the express terms of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents;

(r)    an “Event of Default” as defined in any of the other Loan Documents shall occur;
then, and upon any such Event of Default, the Agent may, and upon the request of the Required Lenders shall, by notice in writing to the Borrower declare all amounts owing with respect to this Agreement, the Notes, the Letter of Credit, and the other Loan Documents to be, and they shall thereupon forthwith become, immediately due and payable without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind, all of which are hereby expressly waived by the Borrower; provided that in the event of any Event of Default by Borrower specified in §12.1(g), §12.1(h), or §12.1(i), all such amounts shall become immediately due and payable automatically (“Acceleration”) and without any requirement of presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind from any of the Lenders or the Agent. If demanded by Agent in its absolute and sole discretion after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Borrower will deposit with and pledge to Agent cash in an amount equal to the amount of all undrawn Letters of Credit. In the event the Borrower fails to deliver such cash collateral, upon demand by Agent or the Required Lenders in their absolute and sole discretion after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, and regardless of whether the conditions precedent in this Agreement for a Revolving Credit Loan have been satisfied, the Revolving Credit Lenders will cause a Revolving Credit Loan to be made in the undrawn amount of all Letters of Credit to be pledged to and held by Agent as security for any amounts that become payable under the Letters of Credit and all other Obligations. Upon any draws under Letters of Credit, at Agent’s sole discretion, Agent may apply any such amounts pledged or funded hereunder to the repayment of amounts drawn thereunder and upon the expiration of the Letters of Credit any remaining amounts will be applied to the payment of all other Obligations and Hedge Obligations or if there are no outstanding Obligations and Hedge Obligations and the Lenders have no further obligation to make Revolving Credit Loans or issue Letters of Credit or if such excess no longer exists, such proceeds deposited by the Borrower will be released to the Borrower.
§12.2    Certain Cure Rights. In the event that there shall occur any Default or Event of Default that affects only a certain Pool Property or the Guarantor which is the owner of such Pool Property and the removal of the Pool Property from the definition of “Pool Property” would cure the Default, then the Borrower may elect to cure such Default or Event of Default (so long as no other Default or Event of Default would arise as a result) by electing to have Agent remove such Pool Property from the calculation of the Pool (and the Borrower’s compliance with § 3.2 as a result thereof), in which event such removal and reduction shall be completed within thirty (30) days after receipt of notice of such Default from the Agent or the Required Lenders.
§12.3    Termination of Commitments. If any one or more Events of Default specified in §12.1(g), §12.1(h) or §12.1(i) shall occur, then, immediately and without any action on the part of the Agent or any Lender any unused portion of, the Commitments hereunder shall terminate and the Lenders shall be relieved of all obligations to make Loans or issue or renew Letters of Credit to the Borrower. If any other Event of Default shall have occurred, the Agent may, and upon the election of the Required Lenders shall, by notice to the Borrower terminate Commitments and the Lenders shall have no further obligation to make Loans or issue or renew Letters of Credit to the Borrower. No termination under this §12.3 shall relieve the Borrower or any other Credit Party of its obligations to the Lenders arising under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents.
§12.4    Remedies. In case any one or more Events of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, and whether or not the Lender shall have accelerated the maturity of the Loans pursuant to §12.1, the Agent on behalf of the Lenders may, and upon the direction of the Required Lenders shall, proceed to protect and enforce their rights and remedies under this Agreement, the Notes and/or any of the other Loan Documents by suit in equity, action at law or other appropriate proceeding, including to the full extent permitted by Applicable Law the specific performance of any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, the obtaining of the ex parte appointment of a receiver, and, if any amount shall have become due, by declaration or otherwise, the enforcement of the payment thereof. No remedy herein conferred upon the Agent or the holder of any Note or any Lender Hedge Provider is intended to be exclusive of any other remedy and each and every remedy shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other remedy given hereunder or now or hereafter existing at law or in equity or by statute or any other provision of law. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Agreement providing that the Loans may be evidenced by multiple Notes in favor of the Lenders, the Lenders acknowledge and agree that only the Agent may exercise any remedies arising by reason of a Default or Event of Default. If any Credit Party fails to perform any agreement or covenant contained in this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents beyond any applicable period for notice and cure, Agent may itself perform, or cause to be performed, any agreement or covenant of such Person contained in this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents which such Person shall fail to perform, and the out-of-pocket costs of such performance, together with any reasonable expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees actually incurred (including attorneys’ fees incurred in any appeal) by Agent in connection therewith, shall be payable by Borrower upon demand and shall constitute a part of the Obligations and shall if not paid within five (5) days after demand bear interest at the rate for overdue amounts as set forth in this Agreement. In the event that all or any portion of the Obligations is collected by or through an attorney-at-law, the Borrower shall pay all costs of collection including reasonable attorney’s fees . No delay or omission on Agent’s part in exercising any right, remedy or option shall operate as a waiver of such or any other right, remedy or option or of any Default or Event of Default.
§12.5    Distribution of Collateral Proceeds. In the event that, following the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, any monies are received in connection with the enforcement of any of the Loan Documents, or otherwise with respect to the realization upon any of the Collateral or other assets of Credit Parties, such monies shall be distributed for application as follows:
(a)    First, to the payment of, or (as the case may be) the reimbursement of the Agent for or in respect of, all reasonable out-of-pocket costs, expenses, disbursements and losses which shall have been paid, incurred or sustained by the Agent in accordance with the terms of the Loan Documents to protect or preserve the Collateral or in connection with the collection of such monies by the Agent, for the exercise, protection or enforcement by the Agent of all or any of the rights, remedies, powers and privileges of the Agent or the Lenders under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents or in respect of the Collateral or in support of any provision of adequate indemnity to the Agent against any taxes or liens which by law shall have, or may have, priority over the rights of the Agent or the Lenders to such monies;
(b)    Second, to all other Obligations and Hedge Obligations (including any Letter of Credit Liabilities and any interest, expenses or other obligations incurred after the commencement of a bankruptcy) in the following order; provided, that (i) in the event that any Lender is a Defaulting Lender, payments to such Lender shall be governed by §2.12; (ii) Obligations owing to the Lenders with respect to each type of Obligation such as interest, principal, fees and expenses shall be made among the Lenders, pro rata; and (iii) Obligations owing to the Lender Hedge Providers with respect to Lender Hedge Obligations shall be made among the Lender Hedge Providers, pro rata; and provided, further that the Required Lenders may in their discretion make proper allowance to take into account any Obligations not then due and payable:
(i)    To any other fees and expenses due to the Lenders or the Issuing Lender until paid in full;
(ii)    [reserved];
(iii)    to payment of interest on all Loans and Letter of Credit Liabilities, for the ratable benefit of the Lenders and the Issuing Lender, until paid in full;
(iv)    [reserved];
(v)    payments of principal of all Loans and Letter of Credit Liabilities, to be paid to the Lenders and the Issuing Lender equally and ratably in accordance with the respective amounts thereof then due and owing to such Persons until paid in full; provided, however, to the extent that any amounts available for distribution pursuant to this subsection are attributable to the issued but undrawn amount of an outstanding Letter of Credit, such amounts shall be paid to the Agent to be held as cash collateral in the Cash Collateral Account; and
(vi)    to any Hedge Obligations owed to the Lender Hedge Providers, pro rata;
(vii)    to payment of all other amounts due under any of the Loan Documents to be applied for the ratable benefit of the Agent, the Issuing Lender and/or the Lenders until paid in full; and
(c)    Third, the excess, if any, shall be returned to the Borrower or to such other Persons as are entitled thereto.
§12.6    Remedies in Respect of Hedge Obligations. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or other Loan Document, each Lender Hedge Provider shall have the right, with prompt notice to the Agent, but without the approval or consent of or other action by the Agent, the Issuing Lenders or the Lenders, and without limitation of other remedies available to such Lender Hedge Provider under contract or Applicable Law, to undertake any of the following: (a) to declare an event of default, termination event or other similar event under any Hedge Obligation and to create an “Early Termination Date” (as defined therein) in respect thereof, (b) to determine net termination amounts in respect of any and all Derivatives Contracts to which it is a party in accordance with the terms thereof, and to set off amounts among such contracts, (c) to set off or proceed against deposit account balances, securities account balances and other property and amounts held by such Lender Hedge Provider and (d) to prosecute any legal action against the Borrower, any Credit Party or other Subsidiary to enforce or collect net amounts owing to such Lender Hedge Provider pursuant to any Derivatives Contract.
No Lender Hedge Provider that obtains the benefits of §12.5 by virtue of the provisions hereof or of any Loan Document shall have any right to notice of any action or to consent to, direct or object to any action hereunder or under any other Loan Document or otherwise in respect of any Loan Document other than in its capacity as a Lender and, in such case, only to the extent expressly provided in the Loan Documents. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article to the contrary, the Agent shall not be required to verify the payment of, or that other satisfactory arrangements have been made with respect to, Derivative Contracts with respect to Hedge Obligations unless the Agent has received written notice of such Derivatives Contracts, together with such supporting documentation as the Agent may request, from the applicable Lender Hedge Provider.
§12.7    Cash Collateral Account.
(a)    As collateral security for the prompt payment in full when due of all Letter of Credit Liabilities and the other Obligations and Hedge Obligations, each Borrower hereby pledges and grants to the Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Agent, the Lenders, and the Lender Hedge Providers as provided herein, a security interest in all of its right, title and interest in and to any Cash Collateral Account and the balances from time to time in any Cash Collateral Account (including the investments and reinvestments therein provided for below). The balances from time to time in any Cash 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 any Cash Collateral Account shall be subject to withdrawal only as provided in this section.
(b)    Amounts on deposit in any Cash Collateral Account shall be invested and reinvested by the Agent in such Cash Equivalents as the Agent shall determine in its sole discretion. All such investments and reinvestments shall be held in the name of and be under the sole dominion and control of the Agent for the ratable benefit of the Lenders. The Agent shall exercise reasonable care in the custody and preservation of any funds held in any Cash 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 any Cash Collateral Account.
(c)    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 Lenders authorize the Agent to use the monies deposited in any Cash Collateral Account to make payment to the beneficiary with respect to such drawing or the payee with respect to such presentment.
(d)    If an Event of Default exists, the Required 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 and Hedge Obligations in accordance with §12.5.
(e)    So long as no Default or Event of Default exists, and to the extent amounts on deposit in any Cash Collateral Account exceed the aggregate amount of the Letter of Credit Liabilities then due and owing and the pro rata share of any Letter of Credit Obligations of any Defaulting Lender after giving effect to §2.12(c), 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 of the balances in the Cash Collateral Account as exceed the aggregate amount of the Letter of Credit Liabilities at such time.
(f)    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 Cash Collateral Account and investments and reinvestments of funds therein. Each Borrower authorizes Agent to file such financing statements as Agent may reasonably require in order to perfect Agent’s security interest in the Cash Collateral Account, and Borrower shall promptly upon demand execute and deliver to Agent such other documents as Agent may reasonably request to evidence its security interest in the Cash Collateral Account.
§13.    SETOFF.
Regardless of the adequacy of any Collateral, during the continuance of any Event of Default, any deposits (general or specific, time or demand, provisional or final, regardless of currency, maturity, or the branch where such deposits are held, but excluding any payroll, employee benefit, fiduciary, trust and tax withholding accounts used exclusively for such purposes) or other sums credited by or due from any Lender or any Affiliate thereof to any Credit Party and any securities or other property of such parties in the possession of such Lender or any Affiliate may, without notice to Borrower or any other Credit Party (any such notice being expressly waived by Borrower) but with the prior written approval of Agent, be applied to or set off against the payment of Obligations and any and all other liabilities, direct, or indirect, absolute or contingent, due or to become due, now existing or hereafter arising, of the Borrower or any other Credit Party to such Lender. Each of the Lenders agrees with each other Lender that if such Lender shall receive from a Borrower or any Credit Party, whether by voluntary payment, exercise of the right of setoff, or otherwise, and shall retain and apply to the payment of the Loan or Notes held by such Lender any amount in excess of its ratable portion of the payments received by all of the Lenders with respect to the Loans held by all of the Lenders, such Lender will make such disposition and arrangements with the other Lenders with respect to such excess, either by way of distribution, pro tanto assignment of claims, subrogation or otherwise as shall result in each Lender receiving in respect of the Loans held by it its proportionate payment as contemplated by this Agreement; provided that if all or any part of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such Lender, such disposition and arrangements shall be rescinded and the amount restored to the extent of such recovery, but without interest. In the event that any Defaulting Lender shall exercise any such right of setoff: (a) all amounts so set off shall be paid over immediately to the Agent for further application in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement 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 (b) the 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.
§14.    THE AGENT.
§14.1    Authorization. Each of the Lenders hereby irrevocably appoints HNB as the Agent and authorize the Agent to take such action on behalf of each of the Lenders and to exercise all such powers as are hereunder and under any of the other Loan Documents and any related documents delegated to the Agent and all other powers not specifically reserved to the Lenders, together with such powers as are reasonably incident thereto, provided that no duties or responsibilities not expressly assumed herein or therein shall be implied to have been assumed by the Agent. The obligations of the Agent hereunder are primarily administrative in nature, and nothing contained in this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents shall be construed to constitute the Agent as a trustee for any Lender or to create an agency or fiduciary relationship. Agent shall act as the contractual representative of the Lenders hereunder, and notwithstanding the use of the term “Agent,” it is understood and agreed that Agent shall not have any fiduciary duties or responsibilities to any Lender by reason of this Agreement or any other Loan Document and is acting as an independent contractor, the duties and responsibilities of which are limited to those expressly set forth in this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. The Borrower and any other Person shall be entitled to conclusively rely on a statement from the Agent that it has the authority to act for and bind the Lenders pursuant to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents.
§14.2    Employees and Agents. The Agent may exercise its powers and execute its duties by or through employees or agents and shall be entitled to take, and to rely on, advice of counsel concerning all matters pertaining to its rights and duties under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. The Agent may utilize the services of such Persons as the Agent may reasonably determine, and all reasonable fees and expenses of any such Persons shall be paid by the Borrower.
§14.3    No Liability. Neither the Agent nor any of its shareholders, directors, officers or employees nor any other Person assisting them in their duties nor any agent, or employee thereof, shall be liable to the Lenders for (a) any waiver, consent or approval given or any action taken, or omitted to be taken, in good faith by it or them hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents, or in connection herewith or therewith, or be responsible for the consequences of any oversight or error of judgment whatsoever, except that the Agent or such other Person, as the case may be, shall be liable for losses due to its willful misconduct or gross negligence as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction after the expiration of all applicable appeal periods or (b) any action taken or not taken by Agent with the consent or at the request of the Required Lenders (or such greater number of Lenders as may be expressly required pursuant to §28.2), as applicable. The Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default, unless the Agent has received notice from a Lender or the Borrower referring to the Loan Documents and describing with reasonable specificity such Default or Event of Default and stating that such notice is a “notice of default.”
§14.4    No Representations. The Agent shall not be responsible for the execution or validity or enforceability of this Agreement, the Notes, any of the other Loan Documents or any instrument at any time constituting, or intended to constitute, collateral security for the Notes, or for the value of any such collateral security or for the validity, enforceability or collectability of any such amounts owing with respect to the Notes, or for any recitals or statements, warranties or representations made herein, or any agreement, instrument or certificate delivered in connection therewith or in any of the other Loan Documents or in any certificate or instrument hereafter furnished to it by or on behalf of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or be bound to ascertain or inquire as to the performance or observance of any of the terms, conditions, covenants or agreements herein or in any of the other Loan Documents. The Agent shall not be bound to ascertain whether any notice, consent, waiver or request delivered to it by the Borrower or any holder of any of the Notes shall have been duly authorized or is true, accurate and complete. The Agent has not made nor does it now make any representations or warranties, express or implied, nor does it assume any liability to the Lenders, with respect to the creditworthiness or financial condition of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries, or the value of the Collateral or any other assets of the Borrower or any of its Subsidiaries. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon the Agent or any other Lender, and based upon such information and documents as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement. Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Agent or any other Lender, based upon such information and documents as it deems appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit analysis and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents. Agent’s Special Counsel has only represented Agent and HNB in connection with the Loan Documents and the only attorney client relationship or duty of care is between Agent’s Special Counsel and Agent or HNB. Each Lender has been independently represented by separate counsel on all matters regarding the Loan Documents and the granting and perfecting of liens in the Collateral.
§14.5    Payments.
(a)    A payment by the Borrower to the Agent hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents for the account of any Lender shall constitute a payment to such Lender. The Agent agrees to distribute to each Lender not later than one Business Day after the Agent’s receipt of good funds, determined in accordance with the Agent’s customary practices, such Lender’s pro rata share of payments received by the Agent for the account of the Lenders except as otherwise expressly provided herein or in any of the other Loan Documents. In the event that the Agent fails to distribute such amounts within one Business Day as provided above, the Agent shall pay interest on such amount at a rate per annum equal to the Fed Funds Rate from time to time in effect. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, each payment of the Borrower hereunder shall be applied in accordance with §2.12(d).
(b)    If in the opinion of the Agent the distribution of any amount received by it in such capacity hereunder, under the Notes or under any of the other Loan Documents might involve it in liability, it may refrain from making such distribution until its right to make such distribution shall have been adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction. If a court of competent jurisdiction shall adjudge that any amount received and distributed by the Agent is to be repaid, each Person to whom any such distribution shall have been made shall either repay to the Agent its proportionate share of the amount so adjudged to be repaid or shall pay over the same in such manner and to such Persons as shall be determined by such court.
§14.6    Holders of Notes. Subject to the terms of §18, the Agent may deem and treat the payee of any Note as the absolute owner or purchaser thereof for all purposes hereof until it shall have been furnished in writing with a different name by such payee or by a subsequent holder, assignee or transferee.
§14.7    Indemnity. The Lenders ratably agree hereby to indemnify and hold harmless the Agent from and against any and all claims, actions and suits (whether groundless or otherwise), losses, damages, costs, expenses (including any expenses for which the Agent has not been reimbursed by the Borrower as required by §15), and liabilities of every nature and character arising out of or related to this Agreement, the Notes, or any of the other Loan Documents or the transactions contemplated or evidenced hereby or thereby, or the Agent’s actions taken hereunder or thereunder, except to the extent that any of the same shall be directly caused by the Agent’s willful misconduct or gross negligence as finally determined by a court of competent jurisdiction after the expiration of all applicable appeal periods. The agreements in this §14.7 shall survive the payment of all amounts payable under the Loan Documents.
§14.8    Agent as Lender. In its individual capacity, HNB shall have the same obligations and the same rights, powers and privileges in respect to its Commitment and the Loans made by it, and as the holder of any of the Notes as it would have were it not also the Agent.
§14.9    Resignation; Removal. The Agent may resign at any time by giving thirty (30) calendar days’ prior written notice thereof to the Lenders and the Borrower. The Required Lenders may remove the Agent from its capacity as Agent in the event of the Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Any such resignation or removal may at Agent’s option also constitute Agent’s resignation as Issuing Lender (with the Commitment Percentage of the Lender which is acting as Agent shall not be taken into account in the calculation of Required Lenders for the purposes of removing Agent in the event of the Agent’s willful misconduct or gross negligence). Upon any such resignation, or removal, the Required Lenders, subject to the terms of §18.1, shall have the right to appoint as a successor Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender, (i) any Lender or (ii) any bank whose senior debt obligations are rated not less than “A3” or its equivalent by Moody’s or not less than “A-” or its equivalent by S&P and which has a net worth of not less than $500,000,000. Unless a Default or Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, such successor Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender shall be reasonably acceptable to the Borrower and shall have a minimum Commitment of at least $5,000,000. If no successor Agent shall have been appointed and shall have accepted such appointment within thirty (30) days after the retiring Agent’s giving of notice of resignation or the Required Lender’s removal of the Agent, then the retiring or removed Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Agent, which shall be (i) any Lender or (ii) any financial institution whose senior debt obligations are rated not less than “A3” or its equivalent by Moody’s or not less than “A-” or its equivalent by S&P and which has a net worth of not less than $500,000,000. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender hereunder by a successor Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender, such successor Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender, shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring or removed Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender and the retiring or removed Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender, shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder as Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender. After any retiring Agent’s resignation or removal, the provisions of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as Agent and, if applicable, Issuing Lender. If the resigning or removed Agent shall also resign as the Issuing Lender, 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 Issuing Lender, in either case, to assume effectively the obligations of the current Agent with respect to such Letters of Credit. Upon any change in the Agent under this Agreement, the resigning or removed Agent shall execute such assignments of and amendments to the Loan Documents as may be necessary to substitute the successor Agent for the resigning or removed Agent.
§14.10    Duties in the Case of Enforcement. In case one or more Events of Default have occurred and shall be continuing, and whether or not acceleration of the Obligations shall have occurred, the Agent may and, if (a) so requested by the Required Lenders and (b) the Lenders have provided to the Agent such additional indemnities and assurances in accordance with their respective Commitment Percentages against expenses and liabilities as the Agent may reasonably request, shall proceed to exercise all or any legal and equitable and other rights or remedies as it may have; provided, however, that unless and until the Agent shall have received such directions, the Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default or Event of Default as it shall deem to be in the best interests of the Lenders. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if Agent reasonably determines payment is in the best interest of all the Lenders, Agent may without the approval of the Lenders pay taxes and insurance premiums and spend money for maintenance, repairs or other expenses which may be necessary to be incurred, and Agent shall promptly thereafter notify the Lenders of such action. Each Lender shall, within thirty (30) days of request therefor, pay to the Agent its Commitment Percentage of the reasonable costs incurred by the Agent in taking any such actions hereunder to the extent that such costs shall not be promptly reimbursed to the Agent by the Borrower or out of the Collateral within such period with respect to the Real Estate. The Required Lenders may direct the Agent in writing as to the method and the extent of any such exercise, the Lenders hereby agreeing to indemnify and hold the Agent harmless in accordance with their respective Commitment Percentages from all liabilities incurred in respect of all actions taken or omitted in accordance with such directions’, provided that the Agent need not comply with any such direction to the extent that the Agent reasonably believes the Agent’s compliance with such direction to be unlawful in any applicable jurisdiction or commercially unreasonable under the UCC as enacted in any applicable jurisdiction.
§14.11    Bankruptcy. In the event a bankruptcy or other insolvency proceeding is commenced by or against Borrower with respect to the Obligations, the Agent shall have the sole and exclusive right to file and pursue a joint proof claim on behalf of all Lenders. Any votes with respect to such claims or otherwise with respect to such proceedings shall be subject to the vote of the Required Lenders or all of the Lenders as required by this Agreement. Each Lender irrevocably waives its right to file or pursue a separate proof of claim in any such proceedings unless Agent fails to file such claim within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice from the Lenders requesting that Agent file such proof of claim.
§14.12    Request for Agent Action. Agent and the Lenders acknowledge that in the ordinary course of business of Borrower and its Subsidiaries: (a) Real Estate may be subject to a taking pursuant to the power of eminent domain, (b) Borrower and its Subsidiaries may desire to enter into easements or other agreements affecting the Real Estate, or take other actions or enter into other agreements in the ordinary course of business which may require the consent, approval or agreement of the Agent. In connection with the foregoing, the Lenders hereby expressly authorize the Agent to: (x) execute consents or subordinations in form and substance satisfactory to Agent in connection with any easements or agreements affecting the Real Estate, or (y) with the consent of the Agent, execute consents, approvals, or other agreements in form and substance satisfactory to the Agent in connection with such other actions or agreements as may be necessary in the ordinary course of Borrower’s and any Subsidiary’s business.
§14.13    Reliance by Agent. The Agent shall be entitled to rely upon, and shall not incur any liability for relying upon, any notice, request, certificate, consent, statement, instrument, document or other writing (including any electronic message, Internet or intranet website posting or other distribution) believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed, sent or otherwise authenticated by an Authorized Officer. The Agent also may rely upon any statement made to it orally or by telephone and believed by it to have been made by the proper Person, and shall not incur any liability for relying thereon. In determining compliance with any condition hereunder to the making of a Loan, that by its terms must be fulfilled to the satisfaction of a Lender, the Agent may presume that such condition is satisfactory to such Lender unless the Agent shall have received notice to the contrary from such Lender prior to the making of such Loan. The Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Borrower), independent accountants and other experts selected by it, and shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in accordance with the advice of any such counsel, accountants or experts.
§14.14    Approvals. If consent is required for some action under this Agreement, or except as otherwise provided herein an approval of the Lenders or the Required Lenders is required or permitted under this Agreement, each applicable Lender agrees to give the Agent, within ten (10) Business Days of receipt of the request for action together with all reasonably requested information related thereto (or such lesser period of time required by the terms of the Loan Documents), notice in writing of approval or disapproval (collectively “Directions”) in respect of any action requested or proposed in writing pursuant to the terms hereof. To the extent that any Lender does not approve any recommendation of Agent, such Lender shall in such notice to Agent describe the actions that would be acceptable to such Lender. If consent is required for the requested action, any Lender’s failure to respond to a request for Directions within the required time period shall be deemed to constitute a Direction to take such requested action. In the event that any recommendation is not approved by the requisite number of Lenders and a subsequent approval on the same subject matter is requested by Agent, then for the purposes of this paragraph each Lender shall be required to respond to a request for Directions within five (5) Business Days of receipt of such request. Agent and each Lender shall be entitled to assume that any officer of the other Lenders delivering any notice, consent, certificate or other writing is authorized to give such notice, consent, certificate or other writing unless Agent and such other Lenders have otherwise been notified in writing.
§14.15    Borrower Not Beneficiary. Except for the provisions of §14.9 relating to the appointment of a successor Agent, and the provisions of §14.12 the provisions of this Article 14 are solely for the benefit of the Agent and the Lenders, may not be enforced by the Borrower, and except for the provisions of §14.9, may be modified or waived without the approval or consent of the Borrower.
§14.16    Reliance on Hedge Provider. For purposes of applying payments received in accordance with §12.5 or any other provision of the Loan Documents, the Agent shall be entitled to rely upon the trustee, paying agent or other similar representative (each, a “Representative”) or, in the absence of such a Representative, upon the holder of the Hedge Obligations for a determination (which each holder of the Hedge Obligations agrees (or shall agree) to provide upon request of the Agent) of the outstanding Hedge Obligations owed to the holder thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Hedge Obligations (and any guaranties in respect thereof) shall be excluded from the application described in §12.5 if the Agent has not received written notice thereof, together with such supporting documentation as the Agent may request, from the applicable Lender Hedge Provider or from the Borrower (including if such Hedge Obligation has been disclosed in the financial statements of the Consolidated Group delivered to the Agent and Lenders under §7.4). Each Lender Hedge Provider not a party to this Agreement that has given the notice contemplated by the preceding sentence shall, by such notice, be deemed to have acknowledged and accepted the appointment of the Agent pursuant to the terms of §14 for itself and its Affiliates as if a “Lender” party hereto.

§18.    ASSIGNMENT AND PARTICIPATION.
§18.1    Conditions to Assignment by Lenders. Except as provided herein, each Lender may assign to one or more Eligible Assignees all or a portion of its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment Percentage and Commitment of any Class and the same portion of the Loans of such Class at the time owing to it and the Notes held by it, and further including for purposes of this §18.1, participations in Letters of Credit); provided that (a) the Agent and the Issuing Lender and, so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing hereunder, Borrower, shall have each given its prior written consent to such assignment, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed (provided that such consent shall not be required for any assignment to another Lender, to an Approved Fund, to an Affiliate of a Lender which controls, is controlled by or is under common control with the assigning Lender or to a wholly-owned Subsidiary of such Lender), (b) each such assignment shall be of a constant, and not a varying, percentage of all the assigning Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement with respect to the Commitment of such Class in the event an interest in the Loans of such Class is assigned, (c) the parties to such assignment shall execute and deliver to the Agent, for recording in the Register (as hereinafter defined) an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement in the form of Exhibit E annexed hereto (“Assignment and Acceptance Agreement”), together with any Notes subject to such assignment, (d) in no event shall any assignment be to (i) any Affiliate of a Credit Party or the Property Manager, or (ii) any Defaulting Lender or any of its Subsidiaries, and (e) such assignee shall acquire an interest in the Loans and Commitments of any Class of not less than $5,000,000 and integral multiples of $1,000,000 in excess thereof (or if less, the remaining Loans and Commitment of the assignor), unless waived by the Agent, and so long as no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Borrower. Upon execution, delivery, acceptance and recording of such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement in the Register, (i) the assignee thereunder shall be a party hereto and all other Loan Documents executed by the Lenders and, to the extent provided in such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement, have the rights and obligations of a Lender hereunder (including the requirements under §4.3(i)), (ii) the assigning Lender shall, upon payment to the Agent of the registration fee referred to in §18.2, be released from its obligations under this Agreement arising after the effective date of such assignment with respect to the assigned portion of its interests, rights and obligations under this Agreement, and (iii) the Agent may unilaterally amend Schedule 1.1 to reflect 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’s having been a Defaulting Lender. In connection with each assignment, the assignee shall represent and warrant to the Agent, the assignor and each other Lender as to whether such assignee is controlling, controlled by, under common control with or is not otherwise free from influence or control by, any Credit Party and whether such assignee is a Defaulting Lender or an Affiliate of 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 §18.4. Borrower agree to promptly reasonably cooperate with any Lender in connection with any proposed assignment or participation of all or any portion of its Commitment. In connection with any assignment of rights and obligations of any Defaulting Lender, 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 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 or any Lender hereunder (and interest accrued thereon) and (y) acquire (and fund as appropriate) its full pro rata share of all Loans and participations in Letters of Credit in accordance with its Commitment Percentage. 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.
§18.2    Register. The Agent, acting for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent for Borrower, shall maintain at one of its offices in the United States a copy of each assignment delivered to it and a register (the “Register”) for the recordation of the names and addresses of the Lenders and the Commitment Percentages of and principal amount of and stated interest on the Loans owing to the Lenders from time to time. The entries in the Register shall be conclusive, in the absence of manifest error, and the Borrower, the Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person whose name is recorded in the Register as a Lender hereunder for all purposes, notwithstanding notice to the contrary. The Register shall be available for inspection by the Borrower and the Lenders at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. Upon each such recordation, the assigning Lender agrees to pay to the Agent a registration fee in the sum of $3,500. This §18.2 shall be construed so that all Loans and Commitments are at all times maintained in “registered form” within the meaning of Section 163(f), Section 871(h)(2) and Section 881(c)(2) of the Code and any related Treasury regulations (or any other relevant or successor provisions of the Code or of such Treasury regulations).
§18.3    New Notes. Upon its receipt of an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement executed by the parties to such assignment, together with each Note subject to such assignment, the Agent shall record the information contained therein in the Register. Within five (5) Business Days after receipt of notice of such assignment from Agent, the Borrower, at their own expense, shall execute and deliver to the Agent, in exchange for each surrendered Note, a new Note (if requested by the subject Lender) payable to such assignee and its registered assigns in an amount equal to the amount assigned to such assignee pursuant to such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement and, if the assigning Lender has retained some portion of its obligations hereunder, a new Note payable to the assigning Lender and its registered assigns in an amount equal to the amount retained by it hereunder. Such new Notes shall provide that they are replacements for the surrendered Notes, shall be in an aggregate principal amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of the surrendered Notes, shall be dated the effective date of such Assignment and Acceptance Agreement and shall otherwise be in substantially the form of the assigned Notes. The surrendered Notes shall be canceled and returned to the Borrower.
§18.4    Participations. Each Lender may sell participations to one or more Lenders or other entities in all or a portion of such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement (including all or a portion of its Commitment and/or the Loans (including such Lender’s participations in Letter of Credit Liabilities) and the other Loan Documents to any Person (other than a natural Person, Defaulting Lender, or Borrower or Guarantor, or any of their respective Affiliates) (each a “Participant”); provided that (a) any such sale or participation shall not affect the rights and duties of the selling Lender hereunder, (b) such participation shall not entitle such participant to any rights or privileges under this Agreement or any Loan Documents, including rights granted to the Lenders under §4.7, §4.8 and §4.9, (c) such participation shall not entitle the participant to the right to approve waivers, amendments or modifications, (d) such participant shall have no direct rights against the Borrower and Borrower shall continue to deal solely and directly with Agent in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under and in respect of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, (e) such participant shall be entitled to the benefits of §4.3 (subject to the requirements and the limitations herein, including the requirements under §4.3(i) (it being understood that any documentation required to be delivered under §4.3(i) 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 §18.1, but shall not be entitled to receive any greater payment under §4.3 than the applicable Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the participation sold to such Participant, (f) such sale is effected in accordance with all Applicable Laws, and (g) such participant shall not be an Affiliate of the Borrower, the Trust, or the Property Manager, or which is not otherwise free from influence or control by any of the Borrower and shall not be a Defaulting Lender or an Affiliate of a Defaulting Lender or a natural Person (or a holding company, investment vehicle or trust fund or owned and operated for the primary benefit of, a natural Person); provided, however, such Lender may agree with the participant that it will not, without the consent of the participant, agree to (i) increase, or extend the term or extend the time or waive any requirement for the reduction or termination of, such Lender’s Commitment, (ii) extend the date fixed for the payment of principal of or interest on the Loans or portions thereof owing to such Lender (other than pursuant to an extension of the Maturity Date pursuant to §2.8), (iii) reduce the amount of any such payment of principal, (iv) reduce the rate at which interest is payable thereon or (v) release Borrower or Guarantor (except as otherwise permitted under §5.3). Each Lender that sells a participation shall, acting solely for this purpose as a non-fiduciary agent of 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, except in the case of a Participant asserting any right of set-off pursuant to §13, 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, Agent (in its capacity as Agent) shall have no responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.
§18.5    Pledge by Lender. Any Lender may at any time pledge all or any portion of its interest and rights under this Agreement (including all or any portion of its Note) to any of the twelve Federal Reserve Banks organized under §4 of the Federal Reserve Act, 12 U.S.C. §341 or any other central banking authority, or to such other Person as the Agent may approve to secure obligations of such lenders. No such pledge or the enforcement thereof shall release the pledgor Lender from its obligations hereunder or under any of the other Loan Documents.
§18.6    No Assignment by Borrower. The Borrower shall not assign or transfer any of their rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of each of the Lenders.
§18.7    Disclosure. The Borrower agrees that, in addition to disclosures made in accordance with standard banking practices, any Lender may disclose information obtained by such Lender pursuant to this Agreement to assignees or participants and potential assignees or participants hereunder, but in all events subject to the terms hereof. Each Lender agrees for itself that it shall use reasonable efforts in accordance with its customary procedures and Applicable Laws to hold confidential all non-public information obtained from Borrower that has been identified in writing as confidential by any of them, and shall use reasonable efforts in accordance with its customary procedures and Applicable Laws to not disclose such information to any other Person, it being understood and agreed that, notwithstanding the foregoing, a Lender may make (a) disclosures to its participants (provided such Persons are advised of the provisions of this §18.7 and agree to destroy or return all confidential information if it does not become an assignee or participant), (b) disclosures to its directors, officers, employees, Affiliates, accountants, appraisers, legal counsel and other professional advisors of such Lender (provided that such Persons who are not employees of such Lender are advised of the provision of this §18.7), (c) disclosures customarily provided or reasonably required by any potential or actual bona fide assignee, transferee or participant or their respective directors, officers, employees, Affiliates, accountants, appraisers, legal counsel and other professional advisors in connection with a potential or actual assignment or transfer by such Lender of any Loans or any participations therein (provided such Persons are advised of the provisions of this §18.7), (d) disclosures to bank regulatory authorities or self-regulatory bodies with jurisdiction over such Lender, or (e) disclosures required or requested by any other Governmental Authority or representative thereof or pursuant to legal process; provided that, unless prohibited by Applicable Law or court order, each Lender shall notify Borrower of any request by any Governmental Authority or representative thereof prior to disclosure (other than any such request in connection with any examination of such Lender by such Governmental Authority) for disclosure of any such non-public information prior to disclosure of such information and provide (if permitted under Applicable Laws) Borrower a reasonable opportunity to challenge the disclosure or require that such disclosure be made under seal. In addition, each Lender may make disclosure of such information to any contractual counterparty in swap agreements or such contractual counterparty’s professional advisors (so long as such contractual counterparty or professional advisors agree to be bound by the provisions of this §18.7). In addition, the Agent and the Lenders may disclose the existence of this Agreement and information about this Agreement to market data collectors, similar service providers to the lending industry and service providers to the Agent and the Lenders in connection with the administration of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents, and the Commitments. Non-public information shall not include any information which is or subsequently becomes publicly available other than as a result of a disclosure of such information by a Lender, or prior to the delivery to such Lender is within the possession of such Lender if such information is not known by such Lender to be subject to another confidentiality agreement with or other obligations of secrecy to the Borrower, or is disclosed with the prior approval of Borrower. Nothing herein shall prohibit the disclosure of non-public information to the extent necessary to enforce the Loan Documents.
§18.8    Titled Agents. The Titled Agents shall not have any additional rights or obligations under the Loan Documents, except for those rights, if any, as a Lender.
§18.9    Amendments to Loan Documents. Upon any such assignment or participation, the Borrower shall, upon the request of the Agent, enter into such documents as may be reasonably required by the Agent to modify the Loan Documents to reflect such assignment or participation.
§18.1    Mandatory Assignment by Non-Consenting Lender. In the event the Borrower requests that certain amendments, modifications or waivers be made to this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents which request requires approval of all of the Lenders or all of the Lenders directly affected thereby and is approved by the Required Lenders, but is not approved by one or more of the Lenders (any such non-consenting Lender shall hereafter be referred to as the “Non-Consenting Lender”), then, within thirty (30) Business Days after the Borrower’s receipt of notice of such disapproval by such Non-Consenting Lender, the Borrower shall have the right as to such Non-Consenting Lender, to be exercised by delivery of written notice delivered to the Agent and the Non-Consenting Lender within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notice, to elect to cause the Non-Consenting Lender to transfer its Commitment. The Agent shall promptly notify the remaining Lenders that each of such Lenders shall have the right, but not the obligation, to acquire a portion of the Commitment, pro rata based upon their relevant Commitment Percentages, of the Non-Consenting Lender (or if any of such Lenders does not elect to purchase its pro rata share, then to such remaining Lenders in such proportion as approved by the Agent). In the event that the Lenders do not elect to acquire all of the Non-Consenting Lender’s Commitment, then the Agent shall endeavor to find a new Lender or Lenders to acquire such remaining Commitment. Upon any such purchase of the Commitment of the Non-Consenting Lender, the Non-Consenting Lender’s interests in the Obligations and its rights hereunder and under the Loan Documents shall terminate at the date of purchase, and the Non-Consenting Lender shall promptly execute and deliver any and all documents reasonably requested by Agent to surrender and transfer such interest, including an Assignment and Acceptance Agreement in the form attached hereto as Exhibit E and such Non-Consenting Lender’s original Note. The purchase price for the Non-Consenting Lender’s Commitment shall equal any and all amounts outstanding and owed by Borrower to the Non-Consenting Lender, including principal and all accrued and unpaid interest or fees, plus any applicable amounts payable pursuant to §4.10 which would be owed to such Non-Consenting Lender if the Loans were to be repaid in full on the date of such purchase of the Non-Consenting Lender’s Commitment (provided that the Borrower may pay to such Non-Consenting Lender any interest, fees or other amounts (other than principal) owing to such Non-Consenting Lender).
§19.    SEVERAL OBLIGATIONS; NO LIABILITY; NO RELEASE. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, (i) the obligations of Lenders hereunder to make Advances of Loans and to make payments pursuant to §14.7 are several and not joint and (ii) such obligations are and shall remain the several, and not joint, obligations of Lenders despite that certain of the Loan Documents now or hereafter may have been or will be executed only by or in favor of the Agent in its capacity as such, and not by or in favor of Lenders. The failure of any Lender to make any Loan or to make any payment under §14.7 on any date required hereunder shall not relieve any other Lender of its corresponding obligation to do so on such date, and no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to so make its Loan or to make its payment under §14.7. Except as may be specifically provided in this Agreement, no Lender shall have any liability for the acts of any other Lender. No Lender shall be responsible to the Borrower or any other Person to take any action on behalf of another Lender hereunder or in connection with the financing contemplated herein. In furtherance of the foregoing, Lenders shall comply with their obligations to make Loans, and to make payments pursuant to §14.7: (x) regardless of the occurrence of any Default or Event of Default hereunder or under any Loan Document; (y) any failure of consideration, absence of consideration, misrepresentation, fraud, or any other event, failure, deficiency, breach or irregularity of any nature whatsoever in the Loan Documents; or (z) any bankruptcy, insolvency or other like event with regard to the Borrower or any Guarantor. Such obligations of Lenders are in all regards independent of any claims between the Agent and any Lender.

HNB or such Lender may also ask to see identifying documents for the entity or person. Each Lender and the Agent (for itself and not on behalf of any Lender) hereby notifies Borrower that, pursuant to the requirements of the Patriot Act, it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies Borrower, which information includes names and addresses and other information that will allow such Lender or the Agent, as applicable, to identify Borrower in accordance with the Patriot Act.

Each of the Credit Parties further agrees that the Lenders and Agent shall be entitled to exercise their respective rights and remedies under the Loan Documents or at law or in equity in such order as they may elect.

§37.5    Subordination. So long as any Commitments have not been terminated or any Loans or Letters of Credit are outstanding, each of the Credit Parties hereby expressly defers and agrees during the continuance of an Event of Default (a) not to assert any right of contribution from or indemnity against the other, whether at law or in equity, arising from any payments made by such Person pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or the Loan Documents, and (b) not to proceed against the other for reimbursement of any such payments. In connection with the foregoing, during the continuance of an Event of Default, each of the Credit Parties expressly defers and agrees not to assert or take advantage of (i) any rights of subrogation to the Lenders or Agent against the other of the Credit Parties, (ii) any rights to enforce any remedy which the Lenders or Agent may have against the other of the Credit Parties and any rights to participate in any Collateral or any other assets of the other Credit Parties. In addition to and without in any way limiting the foregoing, each of the Credit Parties hereby subordinates any and all indebtedness it may now or hereafter owe to such other Credit Parties to all indebtedness of the Credit Parties to the Lenders and Agent, and agrees with the Lenders and Agent that, during the continuance of an Event of Default, neither of the Credit Parties shall claim any offset or other reduction of such Credit Party’s obligations hereunder because of any such indebtedness and, during the continuance of an Event of Default, shall not take any action to obtain any of the Collateral or any other assets of the other Credit Parties so long as the Loans are outstanding.
§38.    ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF BENEFITS; EFFECT OF AVOIDANCE PROVISIONS.
(a)    Without limiting any other provision of §37, each Credit Party acknowledges that it has received, or will receive, significant financial and other benefits, either directly or indirectly, from the proceeds of the Loans made by the Lenders to the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement; that the benefits received by such Credit Party are reasonably equivalent consideration for such Credit Party’s execution of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to which it is a party; and that such benefits include the access to capital afforded to the Borrower pursuant to this Agreement from which the activities of such Credit Party will be supported, the refinancing of certain existing indebtedness of such Credit Party secured by such Credit Party’s Real Estate from the proceeds of the Loans, and the ability to refinance that indebtedness at a lower interest rate and otherwise on more favorable terms than would be available to it if the Real Estate owned by such Credit Party were being financed on a stand-alone basis and not as part of a pool of assets comprising the security for the Obligations. Each Credit Party is executing this Agreement and the other Loan Documents in consideration of those benefits received by it and each Credit Party desires to enter into an allocation and contribution agreement with each other Credit Party as set forth in this §38 and agrees to subordinate and subrogate any rights or claims it may have against other Credit Party as and to the extent set forth in §37.
(b)    During the continuance of an Event of Default, in the event any one or more Credit Parties (any such Credit Party, a “Funding Credit Party”) is deemed to have paid an amount in excess of the principal amount attributable to it (such principal amount, the “Allocable Principal Balance”) (any deemed payment in excess of the applicable Allocable Principal Balance, a “Contribution”) as a result of (a) such Funding Credit Party’s payment of and/or performance on the Obligations or Hedge Obligations and/or (b) Agent’s and/or any Lender’s realization on the Collateral owned, directly or indirectly, by such Funding Credit Party (whether by foreclosure, deed in lieu of foreclosure, private sale or other means), then after payment in full of the Loans and the satisfaction of all of the Credit Parties’ other Obligations under the Loan Documents or the Hedge Obligations, such Funding Credit Party shall be entitled to contribution from each benefited Credit Party for the amount of the Contribution so benefited (any such contribution, a “Reimbursement Contribution”), up to such benefited Credit Party’s then current Allocable Principal Balance. Any Reimbursement Contributions required to be made hereunder shall, subject to §37, be made within ten (10) days after demand therefor.
(c)    If a Credit Party (a “Defaulting Credit Party”) shall have failed to make a Reimbursement Contribution as hereinabove provided, after the later to occur of (a) payment of the Loan in full and the satisfaction of all of all the Credit Parties’ other obligations to Lenders or (b) the date which is 366 days after the payment in full of the Loans, the Funding Credit Party to whom such Reimbursement Contribution is owed shall be subrogated to the rights of Lenders against such Defaulting Credit Party, including the right to receive a portion of such Defaulting Credit Party’s Collateral in an amount equal to the Reimbursement Contribution payment required hereunder that such Defaulting Credit Party failed to make; provided, however, if Agent returns any payments in connection with a bankruptcy of a Credit Party, all other Credit Parties shall jointly and severally pay to Agent and Lenders all such amounts returned, together with interest at the Default Rate accruing from and after the date on which such amounts were returned.
(d)    In the event that at any time there exists more than one Funding Credit Party with respect to any Contribution (in any such case, the “Applicable Contribution”), then Reimbursement Contributions from Defaulting Credit Parties pursuant hereto shall be equitably allocated among such Funding Credit Parties. In the event that at any time any Credit Party pays an amount hereunder in excess of the amount calculated pursuant to this paragraph, that Credit Party shall be deemed to be a Funding Credit Party to the extent of such excess and shall be entitled to a Reimbursement Contribution from the other Credit Parties in accordance with the provisions of this §38.
(e)    It is the intent of each Credit Party, the Agent and the Lenders that in any proceeding under the Bankruptcy Code or any similar debtor relief laws, such Credit Party’s maximum obligation hereunder shall equal, but not exceed, the maximum amount which would not otherwise cause the obligations of such Credit Party hereunder (or any other obligations of such Credit Party to the Agent and the Lenders under the Loan Documents) to be avoidable or unenforceable against such Credit Party in such proceeding as a result of Applicable Laws, including (i) Section 548 of the Bankruptcy Code and (ii) any state fraudulent transfer or fraudulent conveyance act or statute applied in such proceeding, whether by virtue of Section 544 of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise. The Laws under which the possible avoidance or unenforceability of the obligations of such Credit Party hereunder (or any other obligations of such Credit Party to the Agent and the Lenders under the Loan Documents) shall be determined in any such proceeding are referred to herein as “Avoidance Provisions.” Accordingly, to the extent that the obligations of a Credit Party hereunder would otherwise be subject to avoidance under the Avoidance Provisions, the maximum Obligations for which such Credit Party shall be liable hereunder shall be reduced to the greater of (A) the amount which, as of the time any of the Obligations are deemed to have been incurred by such Credit Party under the Avoidance Provisions, would not cause the obligations of such Credit Party hereunder (or any other obligations of such Credit Party to the Agent and the Lenders under the Loan Documents), to be subject to avoidance under the Avoidance Provisions or (B) the amount which, as of the time demand is made hereunder upon such Credit Party for payment on account of the Obligations, would not cause the obligations of such Credit Party hereunder (or any other obligations of such Credit Party to the Agent and the Lenders under the Loan Documents), to be subject to avoidance under the Avoidance Provisions. The provisions of this §38(e) are intended solely to preserve the rights of the Agent and the Lenders hereunder to the maximum extent that would not cause the obligations of any Credit Party hereunder to be subject to avoidance under the Avoidance Provisions, and no Credit Party or any other Person shall have any right or claim under this Section as against the Agent and the Lenders that would not otherwise be available to such Person under the Avoidance Provisions.
(f)    For purposes of §37 and §38, the terms “Credit Party” and “Credit Parties” shall be deemed to also include each Equity Subsidiary to the extent of the Liens granted by such Equity Subsidiary to the Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders, pursuant to the Loan Documents.
