Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On July 16, 2019, Rexford Industrial Realty, Inc. (the “Company”), as guarantor, and its operating partnership, Rexford Industrial Realty, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), as issuer, entered into a Note Purchase and Guarantee Agreement (the “Note Purchase Agreement”) with the purchasers named therein (the “Purchasers”). The Note Purchase Agreement provides for the private placement of $100.0 million of unsecured guaranteed senior notes, of which (i) $25.0 million are designated as 3.88% Series 2019A Guaranteed Senior Notes due July 16, 2029 (the "Series 2019A Notes") and (ii) $75.0 million are designated as 4.03% Series 2019B Guaranteed Senior Notes due July 16, 2034 (the "Series 2019 B Notes" and, together with the Series 2019A Notes, the "Notes"). On July 16, 2019, the Operating Partnership and the Purchasers completed the issuance of the Notes.
Interest on each series of the Notes will be payable semiannually on the sixteenth day of January and July in each year, beginning on January 16, 2020, until maturity.
The Operating Partnership will be permitted to prepay at any time all, or from time to time any part of, the Notes, in amounts not less than $2.5 million of the Notes then outstanding at (i) 100% of the principal amount so prepaid and (ii) the Make-Whole Amount (as defined herein and in the Note Purchase Agreement). The "Make-Whole Amount" is equal to the excess, if any, of the discounted value of the remaining scheduled payments with respect to the Notes being prepaid over the amount of such Notes. In addition, in connection with a Change of Control (as defined in the Note Purchase Agreement), the Operating Partnership is required to offer to prepay the Notes at 100% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon.
The Note Purchase Agreement contains a series of financial and other covenants substantially similar to the Operating Partnership's existing unsecured guaranteed senior notes, including the following:
Maintaining a ratio of total indebtedness to total asset value of not more than 60%;
Maintaining a ratio of total secured debt to total asset value of not more than 40%;
Maintaining a ratio of total secured recourse debt to total asset value of not more than 15%;
Maintaining a minimum tangible net worth of at least the sum of (i) $760,740,750, and (ii) an amount equal to at least 75% of the net equity proceeds received by the Company after September 30, 2016;
Maintaining a ratio of adjusted EBITDA to fixed charges of at least 1.50 to 1.0;
Maintaining a ratio of total unsecured debt to total unencumbered asset value of not more than 60%; and
Maintaining a ratio of unencumbered NOI to unsecured interest expense of at least 1.75 to 1.0.
Subject to the terms of the Note Purchase Agreement and the Notes, upon certain events of default, including, but not limited to, (i) a default in the payment of any principal, Make-Whole Amount, as discussed above, or interest under the Notes, (ii) a default in the payment of certain other indebtedness of the Operating Partnership, the Company or their subsidiaries, (iii) a default in compliance with the covenants set forth in Note Purchase Agreement, and (iv) bankruptcy and other insolvency defaults, the principal and accrued and unpaid interest and the Make-Whole Amount on the outstanding Notes will become due and payable at the option of the holder of the Notes.
The Company and certain of its subsidiaries fully and unconditionally guarantee the Operating Partnership’s obligations under the Notes.
The Operating Partnership intends to use the net proceeds from the issuance of the Notes to fund the acquisition of industrial properties and for general corporate purposes. The Notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. The Operating Partnership offered and sold the Notes in reliance on the exemption from registration provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.
The foregoing summary of the Note Purchase Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Note Purchase Agreement, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.






Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement.

Section 8.
Payment and Prepayment of the Notes.
Section 8.1.    Maturity. As provided therein, the entire unpaid principal balance of each Note shall be due and payable on the Maturity Date thereof.
Section 8.2.    Optional Prepayments with Make-Whole Amount. The Issuer may, at its option, upon notice as provided below, prepay at any time all, or from time to time any part of, the Notes, in an amount not less than $2,500,000 of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes then outstanding in the case of a partial prepayment, at 100% of the principal amount so prepaid, and the Make-Whole Amount determined for the prepayment date with respect to such principal amount. The Issuer will give each holder of Notes written notice of each optional prepayment under this Section 8.2 not less than 10 days (or such shorter period as may be agreed to by the Required Holders) and not more than 60 days prior to the date fixed for such prepayment. Each such notice shall specify such date (which shall be a Business Day), the aggregate principal amount of the Notes to be prepaid on such date, the principal amount of each Note held by such holder to be prepaid (determined in accordance with Section 8.3), and the interest to be paid on the prepayment date with respect to such principal amount being prepaid, and shall be accompanied by a certificate of a Senior Financial Officer of the Issuer as to the estimated Make-Whole Amount due in connection with such prepayment (calculated as if the date of such notice were the date of the prepayment), setting forth the details of such computation. Two Business Days prior to such prepayment, the Issuer shall deliver to each holder of Notes a certificate of a Senior Financial Officer specifying the calculation of such Make-Whole Amount as of the specified prepayment date.
Section 8.3.    Allocation of Partial Prepayments. In the case of each partial prepayment of the Notes pursuant to Section 8.2, the principal amount of the Notes to be prepaid shall be allocated among all of the Notes at the time outstanding in proportion, as nearly as practicable, to the respective unpaid principal amounts thereof not theretofore called for prepayment.
Section 8.4.    Maturity; Surrender, Etc.     In the case of each optional prepayment of Notes pursuant to this Section 8, the principal amount of each Note to be prepaid shall mature and become due and payable on the date fixed for such prepayment, together with interest on such principal amount accrued to such date and the applicable Make-Whole Amount, if any. From and after such date, unless the Issuer shall fail to pay such principal amount when so due and payable, together with the interest and Make-Whole Amount, if any, as aforesaid, interest on such principal amount shall cease to accrue. Any Note paid or prepaid in full shall be surrendered to the Issuer

21



and cancelled and shall not be reissued, and no Note shall be issued in lieu of any prepaid principal amount of any Note.
Section 8.5.    Purchase of Notes. Neither Constituent Company will, or will permit any Controlled Affiliate to, purchase, redeem, prepay or otherwise acquire, directly or indirectly, any of the outstanding Notes except (a) upon the payment or prepayment of the Notes in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Notes or (b) pursuant to an offer to purchase made by a Constituent Company or a Controlled Affiliate pro rata to the holders of all Notes at the time outstanding upon the same terms and conditions. Any such offer shall provide each holder with sufficient information to enable it to make an informed decision with respect to such offer, and shall remain open for at least 20 Business Days. If the holders of more than 25% of the principal amount of the Notes then outstanding accept such offer, the Issuer shall promptly notify the remaining holders of such fact and the expiration date for the acceptance by holders of Notes of such offer shall be extended by the number of days necessary to give each such remaining holder at least 10 Business Days from its receipt of such notice to accept such offer. The Issuer will promptly cancel all Notes acquired by a Constituent Company or any Controlled Affiliate pursuant to any payment, prepayment or purchase of Notes pursuant to any provision of this Agreement and no Notes may be issued in substitution or exchange for any such Notes.
Section 8.6.    Make-Whole Amount.
“Make-Whole Amount” means, with respect to any Note, an amount equal to the excess, if any, of the Discounted Value of the Remaining Scheduled Payments with respect to the Called Principal of such Note over the amount of such Called Principal, provided that the Make-Whole Amount may in no event be less than zero. For the purposes of determining the Make-Whole Amount, the following terms have the following meanings:
“Called Principal” means, with respect to any Note, the principal of such Note that is to be prepaid pursuant to Section 8.2 or has become or is declared to be immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1, as the context requires.
“Discounted Value” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, the amount obtained by discounting all Remaining Scheduled Payments with respect to such Called Principal from their respective scheduled due dates to the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, in accordance with accepted financial practice and at a discount factor (applied on the same periodic basis as that on which interest on the Notes is payable) equal to the Reinvestment Yield with respect to such Called Principal.
“Reinvestment Yield” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, 0.50% over the yield to maturity implied by the “Ask Yield(s)” reported as of 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, on the display designated as “Page PX1” (or such other display as may replace Page PX1) on Bloomberg Financial Markets for the most recently issued actively traded on-the-run U.S. Treasury securities (“Reported”) having a maturity equal to the Remaining Average Life of such Called

22



Principal as of such Settlement Date. If there are no such U.S. Treasury securities Reported having a maturity equal to such Remaining Average Life, then such implied yield to maturity will be determined by (a) converting U.S. Treasury bill quotations to bond equivalent yields in accordance with accepted financial practice and (b) interpolating linearly between the “Ask Yields” Reported for the applicable most recently issued actively traded on-the-run U.S. Treasury securities with the maturities (1) closest to and greater than such Remaining Average Life and (2) closest to and less than such Remaining Average Life. The Reinvestment Yield shall be rounded to the number of decimal places as appears in the interest rate of the applicable Note.
If such yields are not Reported or the yields Reported as of such time are not ascertainable (including by way of interpolation), then “Reinvestment Yield” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, 0.50% over the yield to maturity implied by the U.S. Treasury constant maturity yields reported, for the latest day for which such yields have been so reported as of the second Business Day preceding the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal, in Federal Reserve Statistical Release H.15 (or any comparable successor publication) for the U.S. Treasury constant maturity having a term equal to the Remaining Average Life of such Called Principal as of such Settlement Date. If there is no such U.S. Treasury constant maturity having a term equal to such Remaining Average Life, such implied yield to maturity will be determined by interpolating linearly between (i) the U.S. Treasury constant maturity so reported with the term closest to and greater than such Remaining Average Life and (ii) the U.S. Treasury constant maturity so reported with the term closest to and less than such Remaining Average Life. The Reinvestment Yield shall be rounded to the number of decimal places as appears in the interest rate of the applicable Note.
“Remaining Average Life” means, with respect to any Called Principal, the number of years obtained by dividing (a) such Called Principal into (b) the sum of the products obtained by multiplying (1) the principal component of each Remaining Scheduled Payment with respect to such Called Principal by (2) the number of years, computed on the basis of a 360-day year composed of twelve 30-day months and calculated to two decimal places, that will elapse between the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal and the scheduled due date of such Remaining Scheduled Payment.
“Remaining Scheduled Payments” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, all payments of such Called Principal and interest thereon that would be due after the Settlement Date with respect to such Called Principal if no payment of such Called Principal were made prior to its scheduled due date, provided that if such Settlement Date is not a date on which interest payments are due to be made under the Notes, then the amount of the next succeeding scheduled interest payment will be reduced by the amount of interest accrued to such Settlement Date and required to be paid on such Settlement Date pursuant to Section 8.4 or Section 12.1.
“Settlement Date” means, with respect to the Called Principal of any Note, the date on which such Called Principal is to be prepaid pursuant to Section 8.2 or has become or is declared to be immediately due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1, as the context requires.

The Constituent Companies will, within five Business Days after any Responsible Officer of either thereof has knowledge of the occurrence of any Change in Control or, to the extent such information has been disclosed to the public generally, any Control Event, give written notice of such Change in Control or Control Event to each holder of Notes unless notice in respect of such Change in Control (or the Change in Control contemplated by such Control Event) shall have been given pursuant to Section 8.7(b). If a Change in Control has occurred, such notice shall contain and constitute an offer by the Issuer to prepay Notes as described in Section 8.7(c) and shall be accompanied by the certificate described in Section 8.7(g).
(b)    Condition to Company Action. The Parent Guarantor will not take any action that consummates or finalizes a Change in Control unless (1) at least 30 days prior to such action the Issuer shall have given to each holder of Notes written notice containing and constituting an offer to prepay Notes as described in Section 8.7(c), accompanied by the certificate described in Section 8.7(g), and (2) contemporaneously with such action, the Issuer prepays all Notes required to be prepaid in accordance with this Section 8.7. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Issuer shall not be required to give any notice pursuant to this Section 8.7(b) or to forbear taking any action that consummates or finalizes a Change in Control required by this Section 8.7(b) unless the information regarding such Change in Control to be contained in such notice shall have been disclosed to the public generally (and in such event the Issuer shall instead give the notice specified in Section 8.7(a) in respect of such Change in Control and the offer to prepay the Notes shall instead also be in accordance with Section 8.7(a)).

(d)    Acceptance; Rejection. A holder of Notes may accept or reject the offer to prepay made pursuant to this Section 8.7 by causing a notice of such acceptance or rejection to be delivered to the Issuer at least five Business Days prior to the Change in Control Proposed Prepayment Date. A failure by a holder of Notes to so respond to an offer to prepay made pursuant to this Section 8.7 shall be deemed to constitute a rejection of such offer by such holder.
(e)    Prepayment. Prepayment of the Notes to be prepaid pursuant to this Section 8.7 shall be at 100% of the principal amount of such Notes, together with accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes accrued to the date of prepayment but without any Make-Whole Amount. The

(f)    Deferral Pending Change in Control. The obligation of the Issuer to prepay Notes pursuant to the offers required by Section 8.7(c) and accepted in accordance with Section 8.7(d) is subject to the occurrence of the Change in Control in respect of which such offers and acceptances shall have been made. In the event that such Change in Control does not occur on the Change in Control Proposed Prepayment Date in respect thereof, the prepayment shall be deferred until, and shall be made on the date on which, such Change in Control occurs; provided that, if such prepayment has not been made prior to the 180th day following the Change in Control Proposed Prepayment Date, then on such 180th day (x) the offers and acceptances made pursuant to this Section 8.7 in respect of such Change in Control automatically shall be deemed rescinded without penalty or other liability, and (y) the Constituent Companies shall give a new notice pursuant to Section 8.7(a) with respect to such Change in Control.

Each offer to prepay the Notes pursuant to this Section 8.7 shall be accompanied by a certificate, executed by a Senior Financial Officer of the Issuer and dated the date of such offer, specifying (1) the Change in Control Proposed Prepayment Date, (2) that such offer is made pursuant to this Section 8.7 and that failure by a holder to respond to such offer by the deadline established in Section 8.7(d) shall result in such offer to such holder being deemed rejected, (3) the principal amount of each Note offered to be prepaid, (4) the interest that would be due on each Note offered to be prepaid, accrued to the Change in Control Proposed Prepayment Date, (5) that the conditions of this Section 8.7 have been fulfilled and (6) in reasonable detail, the nature and date of the Change in Control.

Remedies on Default, Etc.
Section 12.1.    Acceleration.

(b)    If any other Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, the Required Holders may at any time at its or their option, by notice or notices to the Issuer, declare all the Notes then outstanding to be immediately due and payable.

40



Upon any Notes becoming due and payable under this Section 12.1, whether automatically or by declaration, such Notes will forthwith mature and the entire unpaid principal amount of such Notes, plus (1) all accrued and unpaid interest thereon (including, but not limited to, interest accrued thereon at the applicable Default Rate) and (2) the Make-Whole Amount determined in respect of such principal amount (to the full extent permitted by applicable law), shall all be immediately due and payable, in each and every case without presentment, demand, protest or further notice, all of which are hereby waived. The Issuer acknowledges, and the parties hereto agree, that each holder of a Note has the right to maintain its investment in the Notes free from repayment by the Issuer (except as herein specifically provided for) and that the provision for payment of a Make-Whole Amount by the Issuer in the event that the Notes are prepaid or are accelerated as a result of an Event of Default, is intended to provide compensation for the deprivation of such right under such circumstances.
Section 12.2.    Other Remedies. If any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, and irrespective of whether any Notes have become or have been declared immediately due and payable under Section 12.1, the holder of any Note at the time outstanding may proceed to protect and enforce the rights of such holder by an action at law, suit in equity or other appropriate proceeding, whether for the specific performance of any agreement contained herein or in any Note or in the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement, or for an injunction against a violation of any of the terms hereof or thereof, or in aid of the exercise of any power granted hereby or thereby or by law or otherwise.
Section 12.3.    Rescission. At any time after any Notes have been declared due and payable pursuant to Section 12.1(b) or (c), the Required Holders, by written notice to the Issuer, may rescind and annul any such declaration and its consequences if (a) the Issuer has paid all overdue interest on the Notes, all principal of and Make-Whole Amount, if any, on any Notes that are due and payable and are unpaid other than by reason of such declaration, and all interest on such overdue principal and Make-Whole Amount, if any, and (to the extent permitted by applicable law) any overdue interest in respect of the Notes, at the applicable Default Rate, (b) neither the Issuer nor any other Person shall have paid any amounts which have become due solely by reason of such declaration, (c) all Events of Default and Defaults, other than non-payment of amounts that have become due solely by reason of such declaration, have been cured or have been waived pursuant to Section 18, and (d) no judgment or decree has been entered for the payment of any monies due pursuant hereto or to the Notes. No rescission and annulment under this Section 12.3 will extend to or affect any subsequent Event of Default or Default or impair any right consequent thereon.
Section 12.4.    No Waivers or Election of Remedies, Expenses, Etc. No course of dealing and no delay on the part of any holder of any Note in exercising any right, power or remedy shall operate as a waiver thereof or otherwise prejudice such holder’s rights, powers or remedies. No right, power or remedy conferred by this Agreement, the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any Note upon any holder thereof shall be exclusive of any other right, power or remedy referred to herein or therein or now or hereafter available at law, in equity, by statute or otherwise. Without limiting the obligations of the Constituent Companies under Section 16, the Issuer will pay to the holder of each Note on demand such further amount as shall be sufficient to cover all documented

41



costs and expenses of such holder incurred in any enforcement or collection under this Section 12, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, expenses and disbursements.
Section 13.        Guaranty.
Section 13.1.    The Guaranty. The Parent Guarantor hereby absolutely, unconditionally and irrevocably guarantees, as primary obligor and not merely as surety, to each holder of a Note (a) the full and punctual payment when due, whether at maturity, by acceleration, by redemption or otherwise, of the principal of, Make-Whole Amount, if any, and interest (including any interest accruing after the commencement of any proceeding in bankruptcy and any additional interest that would accrue but for the commencement of such proceeding) on the Notes and all other obligations of the Issuer under this Agreement and (b) the full and prompt performance and observance by the Issuer of each and all of the obligations, covenants and agreements required to be performed or observed by the Issuer under the terms of this Agreement and the Notes (all the foregoing being hereinafter collectively called the “Obligations”). The Parent Guarantor further agrees (to the extent permitted by applicable law) that the Obligations may be extended or renewed, in whole or in part, without notice or further assent from it, and that it shall remain bound under this Section 13 notwithstanding any extension or renewal of any Obligation; provided that nothing in this Section 13.1 shall limit any rights to the Parent Guarantor with respect to amendments to this Agreement.
Section 13.2.    Waiver of Defenses. The Parent Guarantor waives presentation to, demand of payment from and protest to the Issuer of any of the Obligations and also waives notice of protest for nonpayment. The Parent Guarantor waives notice of any default under this Agreement, the Notes or the other Obligations. The obligation of the Parent Guarantor hereunder shall not be affected by (a) the failure of any holder of a Note to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any right or remedy against the Issuer or any other Person (including any Subsidiary Guarantor) under this Agreement, the Notes, the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any other agreement or otherwise; (b) any extension or renewal of any thereof; (c) any rescission, waiver, amendment or modification of any of the terms or provisions of this Agreement, the Notes, the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any other agreement; (d) the acceptance of any security or Guarantee (including the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement) by any holder of a Note for the Obligations or any of them; (e) the release of any security or Guarantee (including the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement) held by any holder of a Note for the Obligations or any of them; (f) the release of the Issuer, any Subsidiary Guarantor or any other Person from its liability with respect to the Obligations; (g) any act or failure to act with regard to the Obligations; (h) the voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution, sale or other disposition of all or substantially all the assets, marshalling of assets and liabilities, receivership, insolvency, bankruptcy, assignment for the benefit of creditors, reorganization or arrangement under bankruptcy or similar laws, composition with creditors or readjustment of, or other similar procedure affecting the Issuer, any Subsidiary Guarantor or any other Person or any of the assets of any of them, or any allegation or contest of the validity of this Agreement, the Notes, the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any other agreement or the disaffirmance of this Agreement or the Notes or the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any other agreement in any such proceeding; (i) the invalidity or unenforceability of this Agreement, the Notes, the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any other agreement; (j) the impossibility or illegality of performance on the part of the Issuer, any

42



Subsidiary Guarantor or any other Person of its obligations under the Notes, this Agreement, the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any other instrument or agreement; (k) in respect of the Issuer, any Subsidiary Guarantor or any other Person, any change of circumstances, whether or not foreseen or foreseeable, whether or not imputable to the Issuer, any Subsidiary Guarantor or any other Person, or other impossibility of performance through fire, explosion, accident, labor disturbance, floods, droughts, embargoes, wars (whether or not declared), acts of terrorists, civil commotions, acts of God or the public enemy, delays or failures of suppliers or carriers, inability to obtain materials, action of any Governmental Authority, change of law or any other causes affecting performance, or other force majeure, whether or not beyond the control of the Issuer, any Subsidiary Guarantor or any other Person and whether or not of the kind above specified; or (l) any change in the ownership of the Issuer.
It being understood that the specific enumeration of the above-mentioned acts, failures or omissions shall not be deemed to exclude any other acts, failures or omissions, though not specifically mentioned above, it being the purpose and intent of this Section 13.2 that the obligations of the Parent Guarantor shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable to the extent herein specified and shall not be discharged, impaired or varied except by the payment of the Obligations and then only to the extent of such payment. It is also understood that the Parent Guarantor is not waiving any right that it has to consent to amendment to this Agreement.
Section 13.3.    Guaranty of Payment. The Parent Guarantor further agrees that the Guarantee herein constitutes a guaranty of payment when due (and not a guaranty of collection) and waives any right to require that any resort be had by any holder of a Note to any other Person or to any security held for payment of the Obligations.
Section 13.4.    Guaranty Unconditional. The obligations of the Parent Guarantor hereunder shall not be subject to any reduction, limitation, impairment or termination for any reason (other than payment of the Obligations in full), including any claim of waiver, release, surrender, alteration or compromise, and shall not be subject to any defense of setoff, counterclaim, recoupment or termination whatsoever or by reason of the invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of the Obligations or otherwise. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the obligations of the Parent Guarantor herein shall not be discharged or impaired or otherwise affected by the failure of any holder of a Note to assert any claim or demand or to enforce any remedy under this Agreement, the Notes, the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any other agreement, by any waiver or modification of any thereof, by any default, failure or delay, willful or otherwise, in the performance of the Obligations, or by any other act or thing or omission or delay to do any other act or thing which may or might in any manner or to any extent vary the risk of the Parent Guarantor or would otherwise operate as a discharge of the Parent Guarantor as a matter of law or equity.
Section 13.5.    Reinstatement. The Parent Guarantor further agrees that the Guarantee herein shall continue to be effective or be reinstated, as the case may be, if at any time payment, or any part thereof, of any of the Obligations is rescinded or must otherwise be restored by any holder of a Note upon the bankruptcy or reorganization of the Issuer or otherwise.

43



Section 13.6.    Payment on Demand. In furtherance of the foregoing and not in limitation of any other right which any holder of a Note has at law or in equity against the Parent Guarantor by virtue hereof, upon the failure of the Issuer to pay any of the Obligations when and as the same shall become due, whether at maturity, by acceleration, by redemption or otherwise, the Parent Guarantor hereby promises to and shall, upon receipt of written demand by any holder of a Note, forthwith pay, or cause to be paid, in cash, to the holders an amount equal to the sum of (a) the unpaid amount of such Obligations then due and owing and (b) accrued and unpaid interest on such Obligations then due and owing (but only to the extent not prohibited by applicable law).
The Parent Guarantor acknowledges and agrees that repeated and successive demands may be made and recoveries may be had hereunder as and when, from time to time, the Issuer shall default under the terms of a Note or this Agreement and that notwithstanding recovery hereunder for or in respect of any given Default or Event of Default, the Guarantee contained in this Section 13 shall remain in full force and effect and shall apply to each and every subsequent Default or Event of Default.
Section 13.7.    Stay of Acceleration. The Parent Guarantor further agrees that, as between itself, on the one hand, and the holders of the Notes, on the other hand, (a) the maturity of the Obligations guaranteed hereby may be accelerated as provided in this Agreement for the purposes of the Guarantee herein, notwithstanding any stay, injunction or other prohibition preventing such acceleration in respect of the Obligations guaranteed hereby and (b) in the event of any such declaration of acceleration of such Obligations, such Obligations (whether or not due and payable) shall forthwith become due and payable by the Parent Guarantor for the purposes of this Guarantee.
Section 13.8.    No Subrogation. Notwithstanding any payment or payments made by the Parent Guarantor hereunder, the Parent Guarantor shall not be entitled to be subrogated to any of the rights of any holder of a Note against the Issuer or any collateral security or Guarantee or right of offset held by any holder for the payment of the Obligations, nor shall the Parent Guarantor seek or be entitled to seek any contribution or reimbursement from the Issuer or any Subsidiary Guarantor in respect of payments made by the Parent Guarantor hereunder, until all amounts owing to the holders of the Notes by the Issuer on account of the Obligations (other than Unmatured Surviving Obligations) are paid in full. If any amount shall be paid to the Parent Guarantor on account of such subrogation rights at any time when all of the Obligations (other than Unmatured Surviving Obligations) shall not have been paid in full, such amount shall be held by the Parent Guarantor in trust for the holders of the Notes, segregated from other funds of the Parent Guarantor, and shall, forthwith upon receipt by the Parent Guarantor, be turned over to the holders of the Notes in the exact form received by the Parent Guarantor (duly indorsed by the Parent Guarantor to the holders of the Notes, if required), to be applied against the Obligations.
Section 13.9.    Marshalling. No holder of a Note shall be under any obligation: (a) to marshal any assets in favor of the Parent Guarantor or in payment of any or all of the liabilities of the Issuer under or in respect of the Notes and this Agreement or the obligations of the Parent Guarantor hereunder or (b) to pursue any other remedy that the Parent Guarantor may or may not

44



be able to pursue itself and that may lighten the Parent Guarantor’s burden, any right to which the Parent Guarantor hereby expressly waives.
Section 13.10.    Transfer of Notes. So long as any such transfer is made in accordance with this Agreement, all rights of any holder of a Note under this Section 13 shall be considered to be transferred or assigned at any time or from time to time upon the transfer of any Note held by such holder whether with or without the consent of or notice to the Parent Guarantor under this Section 13.
Section 13.11.    Consideration. The Parent Guarantor has received, or shall receive, direct or indirect benefits from the making of this Guarantee.

Each such new Note shall be payable to such Person as such holder may request and shall be substantially in the form of Schedule 1(a) or Schedule 1(b), as applicable. Each such new Note shall be dated and bear interest from the date to which interest shall have been paid on the surrendered Note or dated the date of the surrendered Note if no interest shall have been paid thereon.

Section 18.2.    Solicitation of Holders of Notes.

A Constituent Company will provide each holder of a Note with sufficient information, sufficiently far in advance of the date a decision is required, to enable such holder to make an informed and considered decision with respect to any proposed amendment, waiver or consent in respect of any of the provisions hereof or of the Notes or of the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement. A Constituent Company will deliver executed or true and correct copies of each amendment, waiver or consent effected pursuant to this Section 18 or the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement to each holder of a Note promptly following the date on which it is executed and delivered by, or receives the consent or approval of, the requisite holders of Notes.
(b)    Payment. Neither Constituent Company will directly or indirectly pay or cause to be paid any remuneration, whether by way of supplemental or additional interest, fee or otherwise, or grant any security or provide other credit support, to any holder of a Note as consideration for or as an inducement to the entering into by such holder of any waiver or amendment of any of the terms and provisions hereof or of the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement or any Note unless such remuneration is concurrently paid, or security is concurrently granted or other credit support concurrently provided, on the same terms, ratably to each holder of a Note even if such holder did not consent to such waiver or amendment.

Any amendment or waiver consented to as provided in this Section 18 or the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement applies equally to all holders of Notes and is binding upon them and upon each future holder of any Note and upon each Constituent Company without regard to whether such Note has been marked to indicate such amendment or waiver. No such amendment or waiver will extend to or affect any obligation, covenant, agreement, Default or Event of Default not expressly amended or waived or impair any right consequent thereon. No course of dealing between either Constituent Company and any holder of a Note and no delay in exercising any rights hereunder or under any Note or the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement shall operate as a waiver of any rights of any holder of such Note.

For the purposes of this Section 21, “Confidential Information” means information delivered to any Purchaser by or on behalf of either Constituent Company or any Subsidiary in connection with the transactions contemplated by or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement, provided that such term does not include information that (a) was publicly known or otherwise known to such Purchaser prior to the time of such disclosure, (b) subsequently becomes publicly known through no act or omission by such Purchaser or any Person acting on such Purchaser’s behalf, (c) otherwise becomes known to such Purchaser other than through disclosure by either Constituent Company or any Subsidiary or (d) constitutes financial statements delivered to such Purchaser under Section 7.1 that are otherwise publicly available. Each Purchaser will maintain the confidentiality of such Confidential Information in accordance with procedures adopted by such Purchaser in good faith to protect confidential information of third parties delivered to such Purchaser, provided that such Purchaser may deliver or disclose Confidential Information to (1) its directors, officers, employees, agents, attorneys, trustees and affiliates (to the extent such disclosure reasonably relates to the administration of the investment represented by its Note and subject to such Purchaser’s confidentiality procedures), (2) its auditors, financial advisors and other professional advisors who agree to hold confidential the Confidential Information substantially in accordance with this Section 21, (3) any other holder of any Note, (4) any Institutional Investor to which it sells or offers to sell such Note or any part thereof or any participation therein (if such Person has agreed in writing prior to its receipt of such Confidential Information to be bound by this Section 21), (5) any Person from which it offers to purchase any Security of either Constituent Company (if such Person has agreed in writing prior to its receipt of such Confidential Information to be bound by this Section 21), (6) any federal or state regulatory authority having jurisdiction over such Purchaser in each case as requested or required by such authority, (7) the NAIC or the SVO or, in each case, any similar organization, or any nationally recognized rating agency that requires access to information about such Purchaser’s investment portfolio, or (8) any other Person to which such delivery or disclosure may be necessary or appropriate (i) to effect compliance with any law, rule, regulation or order applicable to such Purchaser, (ii) in response to any subpoena or other legal process, (iii) in connection with any litigation to which such Purchaser is a party (and, subject to clause (iv) below, if not prohibited by applicable law, such Purchaser shall use commercially reasonable efforts to give notice thereof to the Constituent Companies prior to such disclosure) or (iv) if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, to the extent such Purchaser may reasonably determine such delivery and disclosure to be necessary or appropriate in the enforcement or for the protection of the rights and remedies under such Purchaser’s Notes, this Agreement or the Subsidiary Guaranty Agreement. Each holder of a Note, by its acceptance of a Note, will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by and to be entitled to the benefits of this Section 21 as though it were a party to this Agreement. On reasonable request by either Constituent Company in connection with the delivery to any holder of a Note of information required to be delivered to such holder under this Agreement or requested by such holder (other than a holder that is a party to this Agreement or its nominee), such holder will enter into an agreement with the Constituent Companies embodying this Section 21.

51



In the event that as a condition to receiving access to information relating to either Constituent Company or any Subsidiary in connection with the transactions contemplated by or otherwise pursuant to this Agreement, any Purchaser or holder of a Note is required to agree to a confidentiality undertaking (whether through IntraLinks, another secure website, a secure virtual workspace or otherwise) which is different from this Section 21, this Section 21 shall not be amended thereby and, as between such Purchaser or such holder and the Constituent Companies, this Section 21 shall supersede any such other confidentiality undertaking.
Section 22.
Substitution of Initial Purchaser.
Each Initial Purchaser shall have the right to substitute any one of its Affiliates or another Initial Purchaser or any one of such other Initial Purchaser’s Affiliates (a “Substitute Purchaser”) as the purchaser of the Notes that it has agreed to purchase hereunder, by written notice to the Constituent Companies, which notice shall be signed by both such Initial Purchaser and such Substitute Purchaser, shall contain such Substitute Purchaser’s agreement to be bound by this Agreement and shall contain a confirmation by such Substitute Purchaser of the accuracy with respect to it of the representations set forth in Section 6. Upon receipt of such notice, any reference to such Initial Purchaser in this Agreement (other than in this Section 22), shall be deemed to refer to such Substitute Purchaser in lieu of such Initial Purchaser. In the event that such Substitute Purchaser is so substituted as an Initial Purchaser hereunder and such Substitute Purchaser thereafter transfers to such Initial Purchaser all of the Notes then held by such Substitute Purchaser, upon receipt by the Constituent Companies of notice of such transfer, any reference to such Substitute Purchaser as an “Initial Purchaser” in this Agreement (other than in this Section 22), shall no longer be deemed to refer to such Substitute Purchaser, but shall refer to such Initial Purchaser, and such Initial Purchaser shall again have all the rights of an original holder of the Notes under this Agreement.
