-65-





Dollar-denominated restriction to be exceeded if calculated at the relevant currency exchange rate in effect on the date of such Refinancing, such Dollar-denominated restriction shall be deemed not to have been exceeded so long as the principal amount of such Refinanced Debt does not exceed the principal amount of such Debt being Refinanced, except by an amount equal to the accrued interest and premium thereon plus other amounts paid and fees and expenses incurred in connection with such Refinancing plus an amount equal to any existing commitment unutilized and letters of credit undrawn thereunder and (z) for the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing provisions of this Section 1.9 shall otherwise apply to such Sections, including with respect to determining whether any Debt or Investment may be incurred or Disposition, Distribution or payment of Junior Debt may be made at any time under such Sections.

ARTICLE II    

LOANS AND LETTERS OF CREDIT
2.1    Credit Facilities. Subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, (i) the Lenders agree to make Revolving Loans to the Borrower on the Closing Date and at any time and from time to time prior to the Termination Date, in an aggregate principal amount outstanding not in excess of the Maximum Revolver Amount, (ii) the Swingline Lender agrees to extend credit to the Borrower, at any time and from time to time prior to the Termination Date, in the form of Swingline Loans, in an aggregate principal amount at any time outstanding not in excess of the Swingline Sublimit, and (iii) the Letter of Credit Issuers agree to issue Letters of Credit on behalf of the Borrower, in an aggregate face amount at any time outstanding not in excess of the Letter of Credit Subfacility. The proceeds of the Revolving Loans and the Swingline Loans are to be used solely to finance ongoing working capital needs and for other general corporate purposes (including Permitted Acquisitions and other Permitted Investments, Permitted Distributions and the repayment or prepayment of Debt, in each case to the extent not prohibited pursuant to the terms hereof) of the Borrower and its Restricted Subsidiaries. Each Loan made pursuant to this Agreement shall be made in Dollars.
2.2    Revolving Loans. Subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, each Lender severally, but not jointly or jointly and severally, agrees, upon the Borrower’s request from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Closing Date to the Termination Date, to make Revolving Loans in Dollars to the Borrower in amounts not to exceed such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of then-current Availability. The Lenders, however, in their unanimous discretion, may elect to make Revolving Loans or issue or arrange to have issued Letters of Credit in excess of the Borrowing Base on one or more occasions, but if they do so, neither the Agent nor the Lenders shall be deemed thereby to have changed the limits of the Borrowing Base or to be obligated to exceed such limits on any other occasion. If any such Borrowing would exceed Availability, the Lenders may refuse to

-66-





make or may otherwise restrict the making of Revolving Loans as the Lenders determine until such excess has been eliminated, subject to the Agent’s authority, in its sole discretion, to make Agent Advances pursuant to the terms of Section 2.4(g).
2.3    Letters of Credit.
(a)    Agreement to Issue. Subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Letter of Credit Issuers agree to issue for the account of the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary of the Borrower one or more standby letters of credit denominated in Dollars (each, a “Letter of Credit” and, collectively, the “Letters of Credit”) and to amend, renew or extend Letters of Credit previously issued by such Letter of Credit Issuer (unless otherwise provided below); provided that the Borrower shall be the applicant, and be jointly and severally liable, with respect to any Letter of Credit issued for the account of a Restricted Subsidiary.
(b)    Amounts; Outside Expiration Date. The Letter of Credit Issuers shall not have any obligation to issue any Letter of Credit at any time if (i) the maximum aggregate amount of the requested Letter of Credit for the term of such Letter of Credit (including any increases in amount referenced therein) is greater than the Unused Letter of Credit Subfacility at such time; (ii) the maximum undrawn amount of the requested Letter of Credit would exceed the then-current Availability; or (iii) such Letter of Credit has an expiration date later than 12 months after the date of issuance (subject to customary evergreen or automatic renewal provisions reasonably acceptable to such Letter of Credit Issuer, which may provide for renewal for additional period of up to 12 months); provided that in no event shall any Letter of Credit have an expiration date later than the date that is five (5) Business Days prior to the Stated Termination Date or such later date to the extent such Letter of Credit has been cash collateralized in an amount to be agreed with the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer or backstopped with another letter of credit for such period after the Termination Date in a manner mutually and reasonably agreed between the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer and the Borrower. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Letter of Credit Issuer shall be required to issue any Letter of Credit if the aggregate maximum amount of all Letters of Credit issued by such Letter of Credit Issuer would exceed its L/C Commitment. With respect to any Letter of Credit which contains any “evergreen” or automatic renewal or extension provision, if such Letter of Credit permits the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer to prevent any extension by giving notice to the beneficiary thereof no later than a date (the “Non-Extension Notice Date”), once any such Letter of Credit has been issued, the Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized such Letter of Credit Issuer to permit extensions of such Letter of Credit to an expiry date not later than the date that is five (5) Business Days prior to the Stated Termination Date, unless the Agent shall have received written notice from the Required Lenders declining to consent to any such extension at least thirty (30) days prior to the Non-Extension Notice Date; provided that no Lender may decline to consent to any such extension if all of the requirements of this Section 2.3 are met and no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.
(c)    Other Conditions. In addition to the conditions precedent contained in Article IX, the obligation of the Letter of Credit Issuers to issue any applicable Letter of Credit is subject to the following conditions precedent having been satisfied:
(i)    the Borrower shall have delivered to the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, at least three (3) Business Days (or such shorter period as the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer may agree) in advance of the proposed date of issuance of any Letter of Credit, an application in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to such Letter of Credit Issuer for the issuance of the Letter of Credit and such other documents as may be reasonably required pursuant to the terms thereof, and the form of the proposed Letter of Credit shall be reasonably satisfactory to the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer; and

-67-





(ii)    as of the date of issuance, no order of any court, arbitrator or Governmental Authority shall purport by its terms to enjoin or restrain the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer from issuing letters of credit of the type and in the amount of the proposed Letter of Credit, and no Law applicable to the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer and no request or directive (whether or not having the force of Law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over such Letter of Credit Issuer shall prohibit, or request that the proposed Letter of Credit Issuer refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or the issuance of such Letters of Credit.
(d)    Issuance of Letters of Credit.
(i)    Request for Issuance. The Borrower shall deliver an application signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Letter of Credit Issuer to the Agent and the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer of a requested Letter of Credit at least three (3) Business Days (or such shorter period as the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer may agree) prior to the proposed issuance date. Such application shall specify the original face amount of the Letter of Credit requested, the Business Day of issuance of such requested Letter of Credit, whether such Letter of Credit may be drawn in a single or in partial draws, the Business Day on which the requested Letter of Credit is to expire, the purpose for which such Letter of Credit is to be issued, and the beneficiary of the requested Letter of Credit. The Borrower shall attach to such application the proposed draw conditions to be included in the form of the Letter of Credit.
(ii)    Responsibilities of the Agent; Issuance. As of the Business Day immediately preceding the requested issuance date of each Letter of Credit, the Agent shall determine the amount of the Unused Letter of Credit Subfacility and the then-current Availability as of such date. If (A) the aggregate amount of the requested Letter of Credit for the term of such Letter of Credit (including any increases in amount referenced therein) is less than the Unused Letter of Credit Subfacility and (B) the amount of such requested Letter of Credit would not exceed the then-current Availability, the Agent shall inform the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer that it may issue the requested Letter of Credit on the requested issuance date so long as the other conditions to such issuance set forth in this Agreement are met.
(iii)    No Extensions or Amendment. Except in the case of Letters of Credit subject to evergreen or automatic renewal provisions, no Letter of Credit Issuer shall be required to extend, renew or amend any Letter of Credit issued pursuant hereto unless the requirements of this Section 2.3 are met as though a new Letter of Credit were being requested and issued.
(e)    Payments Pursuant to Letters of Credit. The Borrower hereby agrees to reimburse the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer in Dollars with respect to any drawing or disbursement by such Letter of Credit Issuer under any Letter of Credit, by making payment, whether with its own funds, with the proceeds of Revolving Loans or any other source, to the Agent for the account of the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer in immediately available funds, (with respect to each such amount so paid under a Letter of Credit until reimbursed, an “Unpaid Drawing”) (i) within one Business Day of the date of such drawing or disbursement if the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer provides notice to the Borrower of such drawing or disbursement prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on such prior Business Day after the date of such drawing or disbursement or (ii) if such notice is received after such time, on the next Business Day following the date of receipt of such notice (such required date for reimbursement under clause (i) or (ii), as applicable (the “Required Reimbursement Date”)), with interest on the amount so paid or disbursed by such applicable Letter of Credit Issuer, from and including the date of such drawing or disbursement to but excluding the Required Reimbursement Date, at the per annum rate for each day equal to the applicable rate described in Section 3.1(a)(i); provided that, notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, with respect to any Letter of Credit, unless the Borrower shall have notified the Agent and the applicable Letter of

-68-





Credit Issuer prior to 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the Required Reimbursement Date that the Borrower intends to reimburse such Letter of Credit Issuer for the amount of such drawing or disbursement with funds other than the proceeds of Revolving Loans, each drawing under any Letter of Credit shall constitute a request by the Borrower to the Agent for a Borrowing of a Base Rate Loan in the amount of such drawing and, to the extent such Base Rate Loan is made, the Borrower’s obligation to make such payment shall be discharged and replaced by the resulting Base Rate Loan.
(f)    Indemnification; Exoneration; Power of Attorney.
(i)    Indemnification. In addition to amounts payable as elsewhere provided in this Section 2.3, the Borrower agrees to protect, indemnify, pay and save the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, charges and reasonable and documented or invoiced out-of-pocket expenses (including reasonable Attorney Costs) which such Letter of Credit Issuer may incur or be subject to as a consequence, direct or indirect, of the issuance of any Letter of Credit, except that the foregoing indemnity shall not apply to such Letter of Credit Issuer to the extent of acts or omissions arises out of gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of such Letter of Credit Issuer (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision). The Borrower’s obligations under this Section shall survive payment of all other Obligations and termination of this Agreement.
(ii)    Assumption of Risk by the Borrower. As among the Borrower, the Revolving Credit Lenders, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer and the Agent, the Borrower assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of any of the Letters of Credit by, the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Lenders, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer and the Agent shall not be responsible for (except in the case of any such Person (but not with respect to any other Person), to the extent arising out of the gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct of such Person (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision) in connection with any of the following): (A) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any document submitted by any Person in connection with the application for and issuance of and presentation of drafts with respect to any of the Letters of Credit, even if it should prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged; (B) the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason; (C) the failure of the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit to comply duly with conditions set forth in any separate agreement with the Borrower that are required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit; (D) errors, omissions, interruptions, or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (E) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (F) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any Letter of Credit or of the proceeds thereof; (G) the misapplication by the beneficiary of any Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; (H) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of the Revolving Credit Lenders, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer or the Agent, including any act or omission, whether rightful or wrongful, of any present or future de jure or de facto Governmental Authority; or (I) the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer’s honor of a draw for which the draw or any certificate fails to comply in any material respect with the terms of the Letter of Credit; provided that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude the Borrower’s pursuing such rights and remedies as it may have against the beneficiary or transferee at Law or under any other agreement. None of the foregoing shall affect, impair or prevent the vesting of any rights or powers of the Agent or any Revolving Credit Lender under this Section 2.3(f).

-69-





(iii)    Exoneration. Without limiting the foregoing, no action or omission whatsoever by the Agent, a Letter of Credit Issuer or any Revolving Credit Lender shall result in any liability of the Agent, such Letter of Credit Issuer or any Revolving Credit Lender to the Borrower (except as provided in the immediately succeeding clause (iv)), or relieve the Borrower of any of its obligations hereunder to any such Person.
(iv)    Rights Against Letter of Credit Issuer. Nothing contained in this Agreement is intended to limit the Borrower’s rights or claims, if any, under Law or otherwise, against any Letter of Credit Issuer which arise as a result of the letter of credit application and related documents executed by such Letter of Credit Issuer or which arise as a result of such Letter of Credit Issuer’s willful misconduct, gross negligence or bad faith (as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction in a final and non-appealable decision).
(v)    Account Party. The Borrower hereby authorizes and directs any Letter of Credit Issuer to name the Borrower as the “Account Party” in the Letters of Credit and to deliver to the Agent all instruments, documents and other writings and property received by the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer pursuant to the Letters of Credit, and to accept and rely upon the Agent’s instructions and agreements with respect to all matters arising in connection with the Letters of Credit or the applications therefor.
(g)    Supporting Letter of Credit. If, notwithstanding the provisions of Section 2.3(b) and Section 11.1, any Letter of Credit is outstanding upon the termination of this Agreement, then upon such termination the Borrower shall (i) deposit with the Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Agent, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer and the Revolving Credit Lenders, with respect to each Letter of Credit then outstanding, a standby letter of credit (a “Supporting Letter of Credit”) in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Agent, issued by an issuer reasonably satisfactory to the Agent, in an amount equal to 103% (or such lesser amount as the Agent and such Letter of Credit Issuer shall agree but not less than 100%) of the sum of the greatest amount for which such Letter of Credit may be drawn plus any fees and expenses then due and owing with such Letter of Credit, under which Supporting Letter of Credit the Agent is entitled to draw amounts necessary to reimburse the Agent, such Letter of Credit Issuer and the Revolving Credit Lenders for payments to be made by the Agent, such Letter of Credit Issuer and such Revolving Credit Lenders under such Letter of Credit and any fees and expenses then due and owing or to become due and owing with such Letter of Credit, or (ii) cash collateralize each Letter of Credit then outstanding, in an amount equal to 103% (or such lesser amount as the Agent and such Letter of Credit Issuer shall agree) of the sum of the greatest amount for which such Letter of Credit may be drawn plus any fees and expenses then due and owing with such Letter of Credit, in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the Agent. Such Supporting Letter of Credit or cash collateral shall be held by the Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Agent, the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer and the Revolving Credit Lenders, as security for, and to provide for the payment of, the aggregate undrawn amount of such Letters of Credit remaining outstanding.
(h)    Addition of a Letter of Credit Issuer. A Lender (or any of its Subsidiaries or affiliates) may become an additional Letter of Credit Issuer hereunder pursuant to a written agreement among the Borrower, the Agent and such Lender. The Agent shall notify the Revolving Credit Lenders of any such additional Letter of Credit Issuer.
2.4    Loan Administration.
(a)    Procedure for Borrowing.
(i)    Each Borrowing by the Borrower shall be made upon the Borrower’s written notice delivered to the Agent in the form of a notice of borrowing substantially in the form of Exhibit B (“Notice of Borrowing”), which must be received by the Agent prior to (w) 12:00 noon (New York City time) three (3) Business Days prior to the

-70-





requested Funding Date, in the case of LIBOR Loans, (x) 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) one (1) Business Day prior to the requested Funding Date, in the case of Base Rate Loans on any Funding Date and (y) 10:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the Funding Date, in the case of Swingline Loans, specifying:
(A)    whether such Borrowing is to be a LIBOR Borrowing or a Base Rate Borrowing (and if not specified, it shall be deemed a request for a Base Rate Borrowing);
(B)    the amount of the Borrowing, which (x) in the case of a LIBOR Loan, must equal or exceed $1,000,000 (and increments of $1,000,000 in excess of such amount) and (y) in the case of a Base Rate Loan, must equal or exceed $1,000,000 (and increments of $1,000,000 in excess of such amount);
(C)    the requested Funding Date, which must be a Business Day; and
(D)    in the case of a request for LIBOR Loans, the duration of the initial Interest Period to be applicable thereto (and if not specified, it shall be deemed a request for an Interest Period of one month).
(ii)    At the election of the Agent or the Required Lenders, the Borrower shall have no right to request a LIBOR Loan while an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing.
(b)    Reliance upon Authority. On or prior to the Closing Date, the Borrower shall deliver to the Agent a notice setting forth the account of the Borrower (such account, together with any replacement account, the “Designated Account”) to which the Agent is authorized to transfer the proceeds of the Loans requested hereunder unless otherwise directed in writing by the Borrower. The Borrower may designate a replacement account from time to time by written notice to the Agent. The Agent is entitled to rely conclusively on any Person’s request for Revolving Loans on behalf of the Borrower, so long as the proceeds thereof are to be transferred to the Designated Account or to another account designated by the Borrower in writing. The Agent has no duty to verify the identity of any individual representing himself or herself as a person authorized by the Borrower to make such requests on its behalf.
(c)    No Liability. The Agent shall not incur any liability to the Borrower as a result of acting upon any notice referred to in Section 2.4(a) or (b), which the Agent believes in good faith to have been given by an officer or other person duly authorized by the Borrower to request Loans on its behalf. The crediting of Loans to the Designated Account conclusively establishes the obligation of the Borrower to repay such Loans as provided herein.
(d)    Borrower’s Election. Promptly after receipt of a Notice of Borrowing for a Revolving Base Rate Loan, the Borrower shall elect to have the terms of Section 2.4(e) or the terms of Section 2.4(f) apply to such requested Borrowing. If the condition in Section 2.4(f)(i)(C) is not satisfied, the terms of Section 2.4(e) shall apply to the requested Borrowing.
(e)    Making of Revolving Loans. If the Borrower elects to have the terms of this Section 2.4(e) apply to a requested Revolving Credit Borrowing of a Base Rate Loan or if the Agent receives a Notice of Borrowing for a LIBOR Loan, then, promptly after receipt of the Notice of Borrowing with respect to such Revolving Base Rate Loan or Revolving LIBOR Loan, the Agent shall notify the Revolving Credit Lenders by telecopy, telephone or e-mail of the requested Borrowing. Each Revolving Credit Lender shall transfer its Pro Rata Share of the requested Borrowing to the Agent in immediately available funds, to the account from time to time designated by the Agent, not later than 12:00 noon (New York City time) on the applicable Funding Date; provided that on the Closing Date, such funds may be made available at such earlier time as may be agreed among the relevant Lenders, the Borrower and the Agent for the purpose of consummating the Transactions. After the Agent’s receipt of all such amounts from

-71-





the Lenders, the Agent shall make the aggregate of such amounts available to the Borrower on the applicable Funding Date by transferring same day funds to the account(s) designated by the Borrower; provided, however, that the amount of Revolving Loans so made on any date shall not exceed the then-current Availability on such date.
(f)    Making of Swingline Loans.
(i)    If the Borrower elects to have the terms of this Section 2.4(f) apply to a requested Revolving Credit Borrowing of a Base Rate Loan, the Swingline Lender shall make a Revolving Loan in the amount of that Borrowing available to the Borrower on the applicable Funding Date by transferring same day funds to the Designated Account or such other account(s) as may be designated by the Borrower in writing. Each Revolving Loan made solely by the Swingline Lender pursuant to this Section 2.4(f) is herein referred to as a “Swingline Loan,” and such Revolving Loans are collectively referred to as the “Swingline Loans.” Each Swingline Loan shall be subject to all the terms and conditions applicable to other Revolving Loans except that all payments thereon (including interest) shall be payable to the Swingline Lender solely for its own account. The Agent shall not request the Swingline Lender to make any Swingline Loan if (A) the Agent has received written notice from any Lender that one or more of the applicable conditions precedent set forth in Article IX will not be satisfied on the requested Funding Date for the applicable Borrowing, (B) the requested Borrowing would exceed then-current Availability on that Funding Date (as reasonably determined by the Agent), or (C) such Swingline Loan would cause the aggregate outstanding principal balance of all Swingline Loans to exceed $15,000,000 (the “Swingline Sublimit”).
(ii)    The Swingline Loans shall be secured by the Collateral Agent’s Liens in and to the Collateral and shall constitute Base Rate Loans and Obligations hereunder.
(g)    Agent Advances.
(i)    Subject to the limitations set forth below, the Agent is authorized by the Borrower and the Revolving Credit Lenders, from time to time in the Agent’s sole discretion, upon notice to the Revolving Credit Lenders, (A) after the occurrence of a Default or an Event of Default, or (B) at any time that any of the other conditions precedent set forth in Article IX have not been satisfied, to make Base Rate Loans to the Borrower on behalf of the Lenders in an aggregate principal amount outstanding at any time not to exceed 10% of the Borrowing Base (provided that the making of any such Loan does not cause the Aggregate Revolver Outstandings to exceed the Maximum Revolver Amount) which the Agent, in its good faith judgment, deems necessary or desirable (1) to preserve or protect the Collateral, or any portion thereof, (2) to enhance the likelihood of, or maximize the amount of, repayment of the Loans and other Obligations (including through Base Rate Loans for the purpose of enabling the Borrower and its Subsidiaries to meet their payroll and associated Tax obligations), and/or (3) to pay any other amount chargeable to the Borrower pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including costs, fees and expenses as described in Section 14.7 (any of such advances are herein referred to as “Agent Advances”); provided, that the Required Lenders may at any time revoke the Agent’s authorization to make Agent Advances. Any such revocation must be in writing and shall become effective prospectively upon the Agent’s receipt thereof.
(ii)    The Agent Advances shall be secured by the Collateral Agent’s Liens in and to the Collateral and shall constitute Base Rate Loans and Obligations hereunder.
(h)    Notice Irrevocable. Other than any Notice of Borrowing for a Base Rate Loan made on or prior to the Closing Date, any Notice of Borrowing made pursuant to Section 2.4(a) shall be irrevocable. The Borrower shall be bound to borrow the funds requested therein in accordance therewith.

-72-





2.5    Reserves. The Agent may establish Reserves or change (including by decreasing the amount of) any of the Reserves, in the exercise of its Reasonable Credit Judgment; provided that such Reserves shall not be established or changed except upon not less than five (5) Business Days’ notice to the Borrower (unless an Event of Default exists and is continuing in which event such notice (which may be oral) may be given at any time prior to the establishment or change and shall not be subject to the five (5) Business Day notice requirement); provided, further, that no such prior notice shall be required for any changes to any Reserves resulting solely by virtue of mathematical calculations of the amount of the Reserves in accordance with the methodology of calculation previously utilized. The Agent will be available during such period to discuss any such proposed Reserve or change with the Borrower and without limiting the right of the Agent to establish or change such Reserves in the Agent’s Reasonable Credit Judgment, the Borrower may take such action as may be required so that the event, condition or matter that is the basis for such Reserve no longer exists, in a manner and to the extent reasonably satisfactory to the Agent. The amount of any Reserve established by the Agent pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 2.5 shall have a reasonable relationship as determined by the Agent in its Reasonable Credit Judgment to the event, condition or other matter that is the basis for the Reserve. In the event that the Agent has determined to establish or change a Reserve pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 2.5 and the Reserve amount to be so established or as modified is inconsistent with the Reserve amount determined by the Agent, then the greater Reserve amount so determined shall apply. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, a Reserve shall not be established to the extent that such Reserve would be duplicative of any specific item excluded as ineligible in the definition of “Eligible Account” or of any then-existing Reserve. The establishment of any Reserve with respect to any obligation, charge, liability, debt or otherwise shall in no event grant any rights or be deemed to have granted any rights in such reserved amount to the holder of such obligation, charge, liability or debt or any other Person (except as explicitly set forth hereunder), but shall solely be viewed as amounts reserved to protect the interests of the Secured Parties hereunder and under the other Loan Documents.
2.6    Incremental Credit Extension.
(a)    The Borrower may at any time or from time to time after the Closing Date, by written notice delivered to the Agent, request one or more increases in the amount under any Class of Revolving Credit Commitments (each such increase, a “Revolving Credit Commitment Increase”).
(b)    Each Revolving Credit Commitment Increase shall be in an aggregate principal amount that is not less than $5,000,000 (provided that such amount may be less than $5,000,000 if such amount represents all remaining availability under the limit set forth below) (and in minimum increments of $5,000,000 in excess thereof), and the aggregate amount of Revolving Credit Commitment Increases (after giving Pro Forma Effect thereto and the use of the proceeds thereof) incurred pursuant to this Section 2.6(b) plus the aggregate principal amount of Revolving Credit Commitments hereunder shall not exceed $400,000,000.
(c)    (i) The Revolving Credit Commitment Increases shall be treated the same as the Revolving Credit Commitments (except that the maturity date thereof shall be no earlier than the initial Stated Termination Date for the Revolving Credit Facility) and shall be considered to be part of the Revolving Credit Commitments (it being understood that, if required to consummate a Revolving Credit Commitment Increase, the interest rate margins, rate floors and undrawn commitment fees on the Revolving Credit Commitments may be increased and additional upfront or similar fees may be payable to the lenders providing the Revolving Credit Commitment Increase without any requirement to pay such fees to any then-existing Lenders).
(i)    The Revolving Credit Commitment Increases may be in the form of a separate “first-in, last-out” or “last-out” tranche (the “FILO Tranche”) with interest rate margins, rate floors, upfront fees, funding discounts, advance rates, premiums, unused fees and original issue discounts to be agreed between the Borrower and the

-73-





applicable Lenders providing such Revolving Credit Commitment Increases, and with other terms reasonably satisfactory to the Agent (it being understood to the extent that any financial maintenance covenant is added for the benefit of any FILO Tranche, no consent shall be required from the Agent or any Lender to the extent that such financial maintenance covenant is also added for the benefit of the Revolving Credit Facility) and to be agreed upon (which, for the avoidance of doubt, shall not require any adjustment to the Applicable Margin of other Loans pursuant to clause (i) above) among the Borrower and the Lenders providing the FILO Tranche so long as (1) any loans and related obligations in respect of the FILO Tranche shall not be guaranteed by any Person other than the Guarantors and shall rank equal (or, at the option of the Borrower, junior) in right of priority to the Collateral Agent’s Liens; (2) as between (x) the Revolving Credit Facility (other than the FILO Tranche) and (y) the FILO Tranche, all proceeds from the liquidation or other realization of the Collateral shall be applied, first to obligations owing under, or with respect to, the Revolving Credit Facility (other than the FILO Tranche) and second to the FILO Tranche; (3) no Borrower may prepay Loans under the FILO Tranche or terminate or reduce the commitments in respect thereof at any time that other Revolving Loans (including Swingline Loans) and/or Unpaid Drawings (unless cash collateralized or otherwise provided for in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the Agent) are outstanding; (4) the Required Lenders (calculated as including the FILO Tranche) shall, subject to the terms of the Intercreditor Agreement, control exercise of remedies in respect of the Collateral; and (5) no changes affecting the priority status of the Revolving Credit Facility (other than the FILO Tranche) vis-à-vis the FILO Tranche may be made without the consent of each of the Lenders under the Revolving Credit Facility (other than the FILO Tranche).
(d)    Each notice from the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.6 shall be given in writing and shall set forth the requested amount and proposed terms of the relevant Revolving Credit Commitment Increase. Revolving Credit Commitment Increases may be provided subject to the prior written consent of the Borrower, by any existing Lender (it being understood that no existing Lender will have an obligation to make a portion of any Revolving Credit Commitment Increase) or by any other bank, financial institution, other institutional lender or other investor (any such other bank, financial institution or other investor being called an “Additional Lender”); provided that (i) each existing Lender shall be offered the opportunity to participate in the relevant Revolving Credit Commitment Increase (other than in the case of a FILO Tranche) on a pro rata basis based on such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment prior to such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase and (ii) the Agent, the Swingline Lender and each Letter of Credit Issuer shall have consented (in each case, not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed) to such Lender’s or Additional Lender’s providing such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase if such consent would be required under Section 12.2 for an assignment of Loans and/or Commitments to such Lender or Additional Lender.
(e)    Commitments in respect of a Revolving Credit Commitment Increase, including under a FILO Tranche, shall become Commitments under this Agreement pursuant to an amendment (an “Incremental Agreement”) to this Agreement and, as appropriate, the other Loan Documents, executed the Borrower, each Lender agreeing to provide such Commitment, if any, each Additional Lender, if any, and the Agent. The Incremental Agreement may, subject to Section 2.6(c), without the consent of any other Lenders, effect such amendments to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents as may be necessary or advisable in the reasonable opinion of the Borrower and the Agent to effect the provisions of this Section 2.6. The effectiveness of any Incremental Agreement shall be subject to the satisfaction on the date thereof (each, an “Incremental Facility Closing Date”) and the occurrence of any extension of credit thereunder shall be subject to the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 9.2(a) (provided that, in connection with a Permitted Acquisition or other similar Investment permitted hereunder, compliance with clause (ii) thereof shall instead be limited to compliance with no Event of Default under Section 10.1(a), (c), (e), (f) and (g) having occurred and being in continuance), and such other conditions as the parties thereto shall agree. The Borrower will use the proceeds of the loans under any Revolving Credit Commitment Increase for any purpose not prohibited by this Agreement.

-74-





(f)    (i) Except as set forth under clause (d) above, the Borrower shall not be obligated to offer any existing Lender the opportunity to provide any Revolving Credit Commitment Increase.
(i)    Upon each increase in the Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to this Section 2.6, other than in connection with a FILO Tranche, each Revolving Credit Lender immediately prior to such increase will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assigned to each Lender providing a portion of the Revolving Credit Commitment Increase (each, an “Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase Lender”) in respect of such increase, and each such Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase Lender will automatically and without further act be deemed to have assumed, a portion of such Lender’s participations hereunder in outstanding Letters of Credit and Swingline Loans such that, after giving effect to each such deemed assignment and assumption of participations, the percentage of the aggregate outstanding (A) participations hereunder in Letters of Credit and (B) participations hereunder in Swingline Loans held by each Revolving Credit Lender (including each such Incremental Revolving Credit Commitment Increase Lender) will equal the percentage of the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments represented by such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment. If, on the date of such increase, there are any Revolving Loans outstanding, such Revolving Loans shall on or prior to the effectiveness of such Revolving Credit Commitment Increase be prepaid from the proceeds of additional Revolving Loans made hereunder (reflecting such increase in Revolving Credit Commitments), which prepayment shall be accompanied by accrued interest on the Revolving Loans being prepaid and any costs incurred by any Lender in accordance with Section 5.4. The Agent and the Lenders hereby agree that the minimum borrowing, pro rata borrowing and pro rata payment requirements contained elsewhere in this Agreement shall not apply to the transactions effected pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence or pursuant to a FILO Tranche.
(g)    This Section 2.6 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.4(e) or 12.1 to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, any provisions of this Section 2.6 may be amended with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided no such amendment shall require any Lender to provide any Revolving Credit Commitment Increase without such Lender’s consent.
2.7    Extensions of Revolving Loans and Revolving Credit Commitments.
(a)    The Borrower may at any time and from time to time request that all or a portion of the Revolving Credit Commitments of any Class and/or the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments of any Class (and, in each case, including any previously extended Revolving Credit Commitments), existing at the time of such request (each, an “Existing Revolving Credit Commitment” and any related revolving credit loans under any such facility, “Existing Revolving Loans”; each Existing Revolving Credit Commitment and related Existing Revolving Loans together being referred to as an “Existing Revolving Credit Class”) be converted or exchanged to extend the termination date thereof and the scheduled maturity date(s) of any payment of principal with respect to all or a portion of any principal amount of Existing Revolving Loans related to such Existing Revolving Credit Commitments (any such Existing Revolving Credit Commitments which have been so extended, “Extended Revolving Credit Commitments” and any related revolving credit loans, “Extended Revolving Loans”) and to provide for other terms consistent with this Section 2.7. Prior to entering into any Extension Agreement with respect to any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments, the Borrower shall provide written notice to the Agent (who shall provide a copy of such notice to each of the Lenders of the applicable Class of Existing Revolving Credit Commitments, with such request offered equally to all Lenders of such Class) (an “Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments to be established thereunder, which terms shall be similar to those applicable to the Existing Revolving Credit Commitments from which they are to be extended (the “Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class”) except that (w) all or any of the final maturity dates of such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments may be delayed to later dates than the final maturity dates of the

-75-





Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class, (x)(A) the interest rates, interest margins, rate floors, upfront fees, funding discounts, original issue discounts and prepayment premiums with respect to the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments may be different than those for the Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class and/or (B) additional fees and/or premiums may be payable to the Lenders providing such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments in addition to or in lieu of any of the items contemplated by the preceding clause (A) and (y)(1) the undrawn revolving credit commitment fee rates with respect to the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments may be different than those for the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class and (2) the Extension Agreement may provide for other covenants and terms that apply to any period after the Termination Date; provided that notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.7, or otherwise, (I) the borrowing and repayment (other than in connection with a permanent repayment and termination of commitments) of the Extended Revolving Loans under any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall be made on a pro rata basis with any borrowings and repayments of the Existing Revolving Loans of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class (the mechanics for which may be implemented through the applicable Extension Agreement and may include technical changes related to the borrowing and repayment procedures of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class), (II) assignments and participations of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments and Extended Revolving Loans shall be governed by the assignment and participation provisions set forth in Section 12.2 and (III) subject to the applicable limitations set forth in Section 4.4(a) and (b), permanent repayments of Extended Revolving Loans (and corresponding permanent reduction in the related Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) shall be permitted as may be agreed between the Borrower and the Lenders thereof. No Lender shall have any obligation to agree to have any of its Loans or Revolving Credit Commitments of any Existing Revolving Credit Class converted or exchanged into Extended Revolving Loans or Extended Revolving Credit Commitments pursuant to any Extension Request. Any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments of any Extension Series shall constitute a separate Class of revolving credit commitments from Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class and from any other Existing Revolving Credit Commitments (together with any other Extended Revolving Credit Commitments so established on such date).
(b)    The Borrower shall provide the applicable Extension Request to the Agent at least ten (10) Business Days (or such shorter period as the Agent may determine in its sole discretion) prior to the date on which Lenders under the Existing Revolving Credit Class are requested to respond, and shall agree to such procedures, if any, as may be established by, or acceptable to, the Agent, in each case acting reasonably, to accomplish the purpose of this Section 2.7. Any Lender (an “Extending Lender”) wishing to have all or a portion of its Revolving Credit Commitments (or any earlier Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) of an Existing Revolving Credit Class subject to such Extension Request converted or exchanged into Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall notify the Agent (an “Extension Election”) on or prior to the date specified in such Extension Request of the amount of its Revolving Credit Commitments (and/or any earlier-extended Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) which it has elected to convert or exchange into Extended Revolving Credit Commitments (subject to any minimum denomination requirements imposed by the Agent). In the event that the aggregate amount of Revolving Credit Commitments (and any earlier-extended Extended Revolving Credit Commitments) subject to Extension Elections exceeds the amount of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments requested pursuant to the Extension Request, Revolving Credit Commitments, or earlier-extended Extended Revolving Credit Commitments, as applicable, subject to Extension Elections shall be converted to or exchanged to Extended Revolving Credit Commitments on a pro rata basis (subject to such rounding requirements as may be established by the Agent) based on the amount of Revolving Credit Commitments and earlier-extended Extended Revolving Credit Commitments included in each such Extension Election or as may be otherwise agreed to in the applicable Extension Agreement. Notwithstanding the conversion of any Existing Revolving Credit Commitment into an Extended Revolving Credit Commitment, unless expressly agreed by the holders of each affected Existing Revolving Credit Commitment of the Specified

-76-





Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class, such Extended Revolving Credit Commitment shall not be treated more favorably than all Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class for purposes of the obligations of a Revolving Credit Lender in respect of Swingline Loans under Section 2.4 and Letters of Credit under Section 2.3, except that the applicable Extension Agreement may provide that the maturity date for the Swingline Loans and/or the last day for issuing Letters of Credit may be extended and the related obligations to make Swingline Loans and issue Letters of Credit may be continued (pursuant to mechanics to be specified in the applicable Extension Agreement) so long as the applicable Swingline Lender and/or the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer have consented to such extensions (it being understood that no consent of any other Lender shall be required in connection with any such extension).
(c)    Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall be established pursuant to an amendment (an “Extension Agreement”) to this Agreement (which, except to the extent expressly contemplated by the second sentence of this Section 2.7(c) and notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 12.1, shall not require the consent of any Lender other than the Extending Lenders with respect to the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments established thereby) executed by Holdings, the Obligors, the Agent and the Extending Lenders. In connection with any Extension Agreement, the Borrower shall deliver an opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Agent (i) as to the enforceability of such Extension Agreement, this Agreement as amended thereby, and such of the other Loan Documents (if any) as may be amended thereby (in the case of such other Loan Documents as contemplated by the immediately preceding sentence) and covering customary matters and (ii) to the effect that such Extension Agreement, including the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments provided for therein, does not breach or result in a default under the provisions of Section 12.1 of this Agreement.
(d)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, on any date on which any Class of Existing Revolving Credit Commitments is converted or exchanged to extend the related scheduled maturity date(s) in accordance with Section 2.7(a) above (an “Extension Date”), in the case of the Existing Revolving Credit Commitments of each Extending Lender under any Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class, the aggregate principal amount of such Existing Revolving Credit Commitments shall be deemed reduced by an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of Extended Revolving Credit Commitments so converted or exchanged by such Lender on such date, and such Extended Revolving Credit Commitments shall be established as a separate Class of revolving credit commitments from the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class and from any other Existing Revolving Credit Commitments (together with any other Extended Revolving Credit Commitments so established on such date) and if, on any Extension Date, any Existing Revolving Loans of any Extending Lender are outstanding under the Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitment Class, such Existing Revolving Loans (and any related participations) shall be deemed to be converted or exchanged to Extended Revolving Loans (and related participations) of the applicable Class in the same proportion as such Extending Lender’s Specified Existing Revolving Credit Commitments Class to Extended Revolving Credit Commitments of such Class.
(e)    In the event that the Agent determines in its sole discretion that the allocation of the Extended Revolving Credit Commitments of a given Extension Series, in each case to a given Lender was incorrectly determined as a result of manifest administrative error in the receipt and processing of an Extension Election timely submitted by such Lender in accordance with the procedures set forth in the applicable Extension Agreement, then the Agent, the Borrower and such affected Lender may (and hereby are authorized to), in their sole discretion and without the consent of any other Lender, enter into an amendment to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents (each, a “Corrective Extension Agreement”) within 30 days following the effective date of such Extension Agreement, as the case may be, which Corrective Extension Agreement shall (i) provide for the conversion or exchange and extension of Existing Revolving Credit Commitments (and related exposure) in such amount as is

-77-





required to cause such Lender to hold Extended Revolving Credit Commitments (and related exposure) of the applicable Extension Series into which such other Loans or commitments were initially converted or exchanged, as the case may be, in the amount such Lender would have held had such administrative error not occurred and had such Lender received the minimum allocation of the applicable Loans or Commitments to which it was entitled under the terms of such Extension Agreement, in the absence of such error, (ii) be subject to the satisfaction of such conditions as the Agent, the Borrower and such Lender may agree (including conditions of the type required to be satisfied for the effectiveness of an Extension Agreement described in Section 2.7(c)), and (iii) effect such other amendments of the type (with appropriate reference and nomenclature changes) described in the second sentence of Section 2.7(c).
(f)    No conversion or exchange of Loans or Commitments pursuant to any Extension Agreement in accordance with this Section 2.7 shall constitute a voluntary or mandatory payment or prepayment for purposes of this Agreement.
(g)    This Section 2.7 shall supersede any provisions in Section 2.4(e) or Section 12.1 to the contrary. For the avoidance of doubt, any of the provisions of this Section 2.7 may be amended with the consent of the Required Lenders; provided that no such amendment shall require any Lender to provide any Extended Revolving Credit Commitments without such Lender’s consent.
2.8    Defaulting Lenders. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:
(a)    the Unused Line Fee shall cease to accrue on any of the Revolving Credit Commitments of such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 3.5;
(b)    the Commitments and Loans of such Defaulting Lender shall not be included in determining whether all Lenders or the Required Lenders have taken or may take any action hereunder (including any consent to any amendment, waiver or other modification pursuant to Section 12.1); provided that any waiver, amendment or modification requiring the consent of all Lenders or each affected Lender which affects such Defaulting Lender disproportionately when compared to the other affected Lenders, or increases or extends the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender, shall require the consent of such Defaulting Lender;
(c)    any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Agent for the account of that Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Section 10.2 or Section 10.3 or otherwise), shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by that Defaulting Lender to the Agent hereunder; second, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Default or Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Agent; third, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; fourth, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to any Obligor as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Obligor against that Defaulting Lender as a result of that Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and fifth, to that Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that, if such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans, such payment shall be applied solely to pay

-78-





the relevant Loans of the relevant non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied in the manner set forth in this clause (c);
(d)    if any Swingline Loans are outstanding or Letters of Credit issued at the time such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender then:
all or any part of such Defaulting Lender’s participations in such Swingline Loans and/or Letters of Credit shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares but only to the extent (x) the sum of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Aggregate Revolver Outstandings does not exceed the lesser of the total of all non-Defaulting Lenders’ Revolving Credit Commitments and the Borrowing Base as of such date and (y) no such non-Defaulting Lender’s Aggregate Revolver Outstandings shall exceed such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment at such time;
(i)    if the reallocation described in clause (i) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrower shall within three (3) Business Days following notice by the Agent (x) first, prepay such Swingline Loans and (y) second, cash collateralize for the benefit of the Letter of Credit Issuer only the Borrower’s obligations corresponding to such Defaulting Lender’s participations in Letters of Credit (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above) for so long as such participations in Letters of Credit are outstanding;
(ii)    if the Borrower cash collateralizes any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s Obligations pursuant to clause (ii) above, the Borrower shall not be required to pay any fees to such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 3.6 with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s participations in Letters of Credit during the period such participations in Letters of Credit are cash collateralized;
(iii)    if the participations in Letters of Credit of the non-Defaulting Lenders are reallocated pursuant to clause (i) above, then the fees payable to the Lenders pursuant to Sections 3.5 and 3.6 shall be adjusted in accordance with such non-Defaulting Lenders’ Pro Rata Shares; and
(iv)    if all or any portion of such Defaulting Lender’s participations in Letters of Credit is neither reallocated nor cash collateralized pursuant to clause (i) or (ii) above, then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of the Letter of Credit Issuers or any other Lender hereunder, all letter of credit fees payable under Section 3.6 with respect to such Defaulting Lender’s participations in Letters of Credit shall be payable to the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer until and to the extent that such participations in Letters of Credit are reallocated and/or cash collateralized;
(e)    so long as (i) such Lender is a Defaulting Lender and (ii) a reallocation pursuant to clauses (d)(i) or (d)(ii) above cannot be effectuated, the Swingline Lender shall not be required to fund any Swingline Loan and the Letter of Credit Issuers shall not be required to issue, amend or increase any Letter of Credit, unless it has received assurances reasonably satisfactory to it that non-Defaulting Lenders will cover the related exposure and/or cash collateral will be provided by the Borrower in accordance with this Section 2.8, and participating interests in any newly made Swingline Loan or any newly issued or increased Letter of Credit shall be allocated among non-Defaulting Lenders in a manner consistent with this Section 2.8 (and such Defaulting Lender shall not participate therein); and

-79-





(f)    in the event that the Agent, the Borrower, the Swingline Lender and the Letter of Credit Issuers each agrees that a Defaulting Lender has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Lender to be a Defaulting Lender, then the obligations and participations of the Revolving Credit Lenders shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Lender’s Revolving Credit Commitment and on such date such Lender shall purchase at par such of the Loans of the other Revolving Credit Lenders (other than Swingline Loans) as the Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Lender to hold such Loans in accordance with its Pro Rata Share; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; provided, further, that, except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties and subject to Section 14.21, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from such Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.
ARTICLE III    

INTEREST AND FEES
3.1    Interest.
(a)    Interest Rates. All outstanding Loans to the Borrower shall bear interest on the unpaid principal amount thereof (including, to the extent permitted by law, on interest thereon not paid when due) from the date made until paid in full in cash at a rate determined by reference to the Base Rate or the LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin, but not to exceed the Maximum Rate. If at any time Loans are outstanding with respect to which the Borrower has not delivered to the Agent a notice specifying the basis for determining the interest rate applicable thereto in accordance herewith, those Loans shall be treated as Base Rate Loans until notice to the contrary has been given to the Agent in accordance with this Agreement and such notice has become effective. Except as otherwise provided herein, the Loans shall bear interest as follows:
(i)    For all Base Rate Loans, at a fluctuating per annum rate equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin; and
(ii)    For all LIBOR Loans, at a fluctuating per annum rate equal to the LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin.
Each change in the Base Rate (or any component thereof) shall be reflected in the interest rate applicable to Base Rate Loans as of the effective date of such change. All computations of interest for Base Rate Loans when the Base Rate is determined by the “prime rate” shall be made on the basis of a year of 365 or 366 days, as the case may be, and actual days elapsed. All other computations of fees and interest shall be made on the basis of a 360-day year and actual days elapsed (which results in more fees or interest, as applicable, being paid than if computed on the basis of a 365-day year). On the last Business Day of each calendar quarter hereafter and on the Termination Date, the Borrower shall pay to the Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Lenders (provided that all interest on applicable Swingline Loans shall be for the benefit of the Swingline Lender and all interest on Agent Advances shall be for the benefit of the Agent), interest accrued to the first day of such calendar quarter (or accrued to the Termination Date in the case of a payment on the Termination Date) on all Base Rate Loans in arrears. The Borrower shall pay to the Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Lenders, interest on all LIBOR Loans in arrears on each LIBOR Interest Payment Date.
(b)    Default Rate. During the continuance of any Specified Event of Default, if the Borrower shall default in the payment of the principal of or interest on any Loan or any other amount becoming due hereunder, by

-80-





acceleration or otherwise, or under any other Loan Document, the Borrower shall on demand from time to time pay interest, to the extent permitted by Law, on such defaulted amount to but excluding the date of actual payment (after as well as before judgment) (A) in the case of overdue principal, at the Default Rate, and (B) in all other cases, at a rate per annum equal to the rate that would be applicable to a Base Rate Loan plus 2.00%.
3.2    Continuation and Conversion Elections.
(a)    The Borrower may (provided that the Borrowing of LIBOR Loans is then permitted under Section 2.4(a)(ii)):
(i)    elect, as of any Business Day, to convert any Base Rate Loans other than Agent Advances and Swingline Loans (or any part thereof in an amount not less than $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof) into LIBOR Loans; and
(ii)    elect, as of the last day of the applicable Interest Period, to continue any LIBOR Loans having Interest Periods expiring on such day (or any part thereof in an amount not less than $1,000,000, or that is in an integral multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof);
provided, that if at any time the aggregate amount of LIBOR Loans in respect of any Borrowing is reduced, by payment, prepayment, or conversion of part thereof to be less than $1,000,000, such LIBOR Loans shall automatically convert into Base Rate Loans; provided further that if the Notice of Continuation/Conversion shall fail to specify the duration of the Interest Period, such Interest Period shall be one month.
(b)    The Borrower shall deliver a notice of continuation/conversion substantially in the form of Exhibit C (a “Notice of Continuation/Conversion”) to the Agent not later than, (x) 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) at least three (3) Business Days in advance of the Continuation/Conversion Date if the Loans are to be converted into or continued as LIBOR Loans and specifying:
(i)    the proposed Continuation/Conversion Date;
(ii)    the aggregate principal amount of Loans to be converted or continued;
(iii)    the Type of Loans resulting from the proposed conversion or continuation; and
(iv)    the duration of the requested Interest Period, provided, however, the Borrower may not select an Interest Period that ends after the Stated Termination Date.
(c)    If, upon the expiration of any Interest Period applicable to any LIBOR Loans, the Borrower fails to select timely a new Interest Period to be applicable to such LIBOR Loans, the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected to convert such LIBOR Loans into Base Rate Loans effective as of the expiration date of such Interest Period. If any Event of Default exists, at the election of the Agent or the Required Lenders, all LIBOR Loans shall be converted into Base Rate Loans as of the expiration date of each applicable Interest Period.
(d)    The Agent will promptly notify each Lender of its receipt of a Notice of Continuation/Conversion. All conversions and continuations shall be made ratably according to the respective outstanding principal amounts of the Loans with respect to which the notice was given held by each Lender.

-81-





(e)    There may not be more than 15 (fifteen) different LIBOR Loans in effect hereunder at any time (which number may be increased or adjusted by agreement between the Borrower and the Agent in connection with any Revolving Credit Commitment Increase or the creation of any Extended Revolving Credit Facility).
3.3    Maximum Interest Rate. In no event shall any interest rate provided for hereunder exceed the maximum rate legally chargeable under applicable law with respect to loans of the Type provided for hereunder (the “Maximum Rate”). If, in any month, any interest rate, absent such limitation, would have exceeded the Maximum Rate, then the interest rate for that month shall be the Maximum Rate, and, if in future months, that interest rate would otherwise be less than the Maximum Rate, then that interest rate shall remain at the Maximum Rate until such time as the amount of interest paid hereunder equals the amount of interest which would have been paid if the same had not been limited by the Maximum Rate. In the event that, upon payment in full of the Obligations, the total amount of interest paid or accrued under the terms of this Agreement is less than the total amount of interest which would, but for this Section 3.3, have been paid or accrued if the interest rate otherwise set forth in this Agreement had at all times been in effect, then the Borrower shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, pay the Agent, for the account of the applicable Lenders, an amount equal to the excess of (a) the lesser of (i) the amount of interest which would have been charged if the Maximum Rate had, at all times, been in effect or (ii) the amount of interest which would have accrued had the interest rate otherwise set forth in this Agreement, at all times, been in effect over (b) the amount of interest actually paid or accrued under this Agreement. If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that the Agent and/or any Lender has received interest and other charges hereunder in excess of the Maximum Rate, such excess shall be deemed received on account of, and shall automatically be applied to reduce, the Obligations other than interest, and if there are no Obligations outstanding, the Agent and/or such Lender shall refund to the Borrower such excess.
3.4    Closing Fees and Other Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay the Agent, the Collateral Agent and each of the Arrangers, as applicable, all fees due and payable on any date required for payment of a fee.
3.5    Unused Line Fee. On the first Business Day of each calendar quarter (commencing with the first business day of the calendar quarter beginning July 1, 2017), and on the Termination Date, the Borrower agrees to pay to the Agent, for the account of the Revolving Credit Lenders, an unused line fee (the “Unused Line Fee”) equal to the Applicable Unused Line Fee Margin per annum times the amount by which the average daily Maximum Revolver Amount exceeded the sum of the average daily outstanding amount of Revolving Loans (other than Swingline Loans) and the average daily undrawn face amount of outstanding Letters of Credit, during the immediately preceding calendar quarter (or longer period if calculated for the first such payment after the Closing Date or shorter period if calculated on the Termination Date). All principal payments received by the Agent shall be deemed to be credited immediately upon receipt for purposes of calculating the Unused Line Fee pursuant to this Section 3.5. Upon receipt thereof, the Agent shall distribute the Unused Line Fee to the Revolving Credit Lenders ratably based on their Pro Rata Shares of the Revolving Credit Commitments.
3.6    Letter of Credit Fees. The Borrower agrees to pay (i) to the Agent, for the account of the Revolving Credit Lenders, in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Shares, for each Letter of Credit, a fee (the “Letter of Credit Fee”) equal to, on a per annum basis, the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Loans, (ii) to each Letter of Credit Issuer, for its own account, a fronting fee of one-eighth of one percent (0.125%) per annum of the undrawn face amount of each Letter of Credit issued by such Letter of Credit Issuer, and (iii) to each Letter of Credit Issuer, any out-of-pocket costs, fees and expenses incurred by such Letter of Credit Issuer in connection with the application for, processing of, issuance of, or amendment to any Letter of Credit. The Letter of Credit Fee and fronting fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter in which a Letter

-82-





of Credit is outstanding and on the Termination Date; provided that the first such payment after the Closing Date shall be paid on June 30, 2017.
ARTICLE IV    

PAYMENTS AND PREPAYMENTS
4.1    Payments and Prepayments.
(a)    The Borrower shall repay the outstanding principal balance of the Revolving Loans, plus all accrued but unpaid interest thereon, on the Termination Date.
(b)    The Borrower may, upon notice to the Agent, at any time or from time to time voluntarily prepay the Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty (but subject to Section 5.4); provided that (i) such notice must be received by the Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) (A) three (3) Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of LIBOR Loans and (B) one (1) Business Day prior to any date of prepayment of Base Rate Loans; provided, further, that, in respect of Swingline Loans, the Borrower may deliver such notice to the Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date of prepayment of such Swingline Loans and (ii) each prepayment shall be in a principal amount of $1,000,000 or a whole multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof or, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding. Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the Type(s) of Loans to be prepaid and, if LIBOR Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of such Loans. The Agent will promptly notify each Lender of its receipt of each such notice, and of the amount of such Lender’s ratable portion of such prepayment (based on such Lender’s Pro Rata Share).
4.2    Out-of-Formula Condition. The Borrower shall immediately pay to the Agent, for the account of the Lenders and/or to cash collateralize Letters of Credit pursuant to Section 2.3(g), upon demand, the amount, if any, by which the amount of the Aggregate Revolver Outstandings exceeds at any time the lesser of (i) the Maximum Revolver Amount and (ii) the then-current Borrowing Base (any such condition being an “Out-of-Formula Condition”), except that no such payment shall be required if the Out-of-Formula Condition is created solely as a result of an Agent Advance.
4.3    Mandatory Prepayments.
(a)    (i) At all times after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Cash Dominion Period and notification thereof by the Agent to the Borrower, on each Business Day, the Agent shall apply all same day funds (other than Excluded Funds) credited to the Concentration Account and all amounts received pursuant to this Section 4.3(a) to one or more accounts maintained by the Agent or such other account as directed by the Agent and subject to the terms of any Intercreditor Agreement then in effect, all amounts received in such account shall be applied by Agent in accordance with Section 4.3(a)(ii) below.
(i)    Except as otherwise provided in Section 10.3, all amounts required to be paid pursuant to Section 4.3(a)(i) shall be applied by the Agent as follows: (A) first, to the prepayment in full of Agent Advances, (B) second, to the prepayment in full of the Swingline Loans, (C) third, to cash collateralize Letters of Credit, (D) fourth, to the prepayment in full of the Revolving Base Rate Loans and (E) fifth, to the prepayment in full of the Revolving LIBOR Loans.
(b)    No payment or prepayment made pursuant to this Section 4.3 shall, or shall be deemed to, effect or reduce any Commitment of any Lender or the aggregate Commitments of the Lenders.

-83-





4.4    Termination or Reductions of Facilities.
(a)    The Borrower may terminate this Agreement, upon at least three (3) Business Days’ notice to the Agent (who will distribute such notice to the Lenders), upon Full Payment of the Obligations and payment of amounts (if any) due under Section 5.4. Such notice may provide that such termination is contingent upon consummation of a contemplated refinancing or another transaction.
(b)    The Borrower may from time to time permanently reduce the Revolving Credit Commitments (and the Maximum Revolver Amount), as the case may be, on a pro rata basis based on the applicable Lenders’ respective Pro Rata Shares, upon at least three (3) Business Days’ prior written notice to the Agent, which notice shall specify the amount of the reduction. Each reduction shall be in a minimum amount of $5,000,000 or an increment of $1,000,000 in excess thereof. If after giving effect to any reduction of the Revolving Credit Commitments, the Letter of Credit Subfacility or the Swingline Sublimit shall exceed the Revolving Credit Commitments at such time, each such subfacility or sublimit, as the case may be, shall be automatically reduced by the amount of such excess and such reduction shall be accompanied by such payment (if any) as may be required to be made such that after giving effect to such payment the relevant aggregate Letters of Credit or Swingline Loans do not exceed the applicable subfacility or sublimit as so reduced. Each reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitments shall be accompanied by such payment (if any) as may be required to avoid an Out-of-Formula Condition. It being understood and agreed that the Borrower may allocate any termination or reduction of Commitments among Classes of Commitments at its direction. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower may rescind or postpone any notice of termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments if such termination would have resulted from a refinancing of all of the applicable Commitments, which refinancing shall not be consummated or otherwise shall be delayed.
4.5    LIBOR Loan Prepayments. In connection with any prepayment, if any LIBOR Loans are prepaid prior to the expiration date of the Interest Period applicable thereto, the Borrower shall comply with Section 5.4.
4.6    Payments by the Borrower.
(a)    All payments to be made by the Borrower under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents shall be made without set-off, recoupment or counterclaim. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by the Borrower shall be made to the Agent for the account of the Lenders entitled thereto, at the account designated by the Agent and shall be made in Dollars and in immediately available funds, no later than 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date specified herein. Any payment received by the Agent after such time shall be deemed (for purposes of calculating interest only) to have been received on the following Business Day and any applicable interest shall continue to accrue.
(b)    Subject to the provisions set forth in the definition of “Interest Period,” whenever any payment is due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be due on the following Business Day, and such extension of time shall in such case be included in the computation of interest or fees, as the case may be.
4.7    Apportionment, Application and Reversal of Payments. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, principal and interest payments shall be apportioned ratably among the Lenders to which such payment is owed (according to the unpaid principal balance of the Loans to which such payments owed are held by each such Lender) and payments of the fees shall, as applicable, be apportioned ratably (or other applicable share as provided herein) among the Lenders to which such payment is owed, except for fees payable solely to the Agent, any Arranger or the applicable Letter of Credit Issuer. Whenever any payment received by the Agent under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents is insufficient to pay in full all amounts due and payable to the

-84-





Agent and the Lenders under or in respect of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents on any date, such payment shall be distributed by the Agent and applied by the Agent and the Lenders in the order of priority set forth in Section 10.3. If the Agent receives funds for application to the Obligations of the Obligors under or in respect of the Loan Documents under circumstances for which the Loan Documents do not specify the manner in which such funds are to be applied, the Agent may, but shall not be obligated to, elect to distribute such funds to each of the Lenders in accordance with such Lender’s Pro Rata Share of the Aggregate Revolver Outstandings at such time, in repayment or prepayment of such of the outstanding Loans or other Obligations then owing to such Lender. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, unless so directed by the Borrower, or unless an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, neither the Agent nor any Lender shall apply any payments which it receives to any LIBOR Loan, except (a) on the expiration date of the Interest Period applicable to any such LIBOR Loan or (b) in the event, and only to the extent, that there are no outstanding Base Rate Loans and, in such event, the Borrower shall pay LIBOR breakage losses in accordance with Section 5.4.
4.8    Indemnity for Returned Payments. If after receipt of any payment which is applied to the payment of all or any part of the Obligations under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents, the Agent, any Lender, or any other Secured Party is for any reason compelled to surrender such payment or proceeds to any Person because such payment or application of proceeds is invalidated, declared fraudulent, set aside, determined to be void or voidable as a preference, impermissible setoff, or a diversion of trust funds, or for any other reason, then such Obligations or part thereof intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continued and this Agreement shall continue in full force as if such payment or proceeds had not been received by the Agent, such Lender, or such other Secured Party, and the Borrower shall be liable to pay to the Agent, the Lenders, or such other Secured Party and hereby do indemnify the Agent, the Lenders, or such other Secured Party and hold the Agent, the Lenders, or such other Secured Party harmless for the amount of such payment or proceeds surrendered. The provisions of this Section 4.8 shall be and remain effective notwithstanding any release of Collateral or guarantors, cancellation or return of Loan Documents, or other contrary action which may have been taken by the Agent, any Lender, or such other Secured Party in reliance upon such payment or application of proceeds, and any such contrary action so taken shall be without prejudice to the Agent’s, the Lenders’, or such other Secured Party’s rights under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and shall be deemed to have been conditioned upon such payment or application of proceeds having become final and irrevocable. The provisions of this Section 4.8 shall survive the repayment of the Obligations and termination of this Agreement.
4.9    Agent’s and Lenders’ Books and Records. The Agent shall record the principal amount of the Loans owing to each Lender, the undrawn face amount of all applicable outstanding Letters of Credit and the aggregate amount of Unpaid Drawings obligations outstanding with respect to the Letters of Credit from time to time on its books. In addition, each Lender may note the date and amount of each payment or prepayment of principal of such Lender’s Loans in its books and records. Failure by the Agent or any Lender to make such notation shall not affect the obligations of the Borrower with respect to the Loans or the Letters of Credit. The Borrower agrees that the Agent’s and each Lender’s books and records showing the Obligations and the transactions pursuant to this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall be admissible in any action or proceeding arising therefrom, and shall constitute rebuttably presumptive proof thereof (absent manifest error), irrespective of whether any Obligation is also evidenced by a promissory note or other instrument. Such statement shall be deemed correct, accurate, and binding on the Borrower and an account stated (absent manifest error and except for reversals and reapplications of payments made as provided in Section 4.7 and corrections of errors discovered by the Agent), unless the Borrower notifies the Agent in writing to the contrary within 30 days after such statement is rendered. In the event a timely written notice of objections is given by the Borrower, only the items to which exception is expressly made will be considered to be disputed by the Borrower.

ARTICLE V    

TAXES, YIELD PROTECTION AND ILLEGALITY
5.1    Taxes.
(a)    Payments Free of Taxes. Unless otherwise required by applicable Law, all payments by or on behalf of an Obligor to a Lender or the Agent under this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for, any Taxes. If any applicable Withholding Agent shall be required by any applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of such Withholding Agent) to deduct or withhold any Tax from any payment to a Recipient under this Agreement or any Loan Document, then (i) such Withholding Agent shall 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 (ii) if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the applicable Obligor shall be increased as necessary so that after all such required deductions and withholdings are made (including deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 5.1) the applicable Lender (or, in the case of a payment made to the Agent for its own account, the Agent) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions or withholdings been made. In addition, the Borrower shall pay all Other Taxes when due.
(b)    Indemnification by Obligors. The Obligors agree jointly and severally to indemnify and hold harmless each Lender and the Agent for the full amount of Indemnified Taxes (including any Indemnified Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 5.1) paid or payable by any Lender or the Agent and any reasonable and documented or invoiced out-of-pocket expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally asserted. Payment under this indemnification shall be made within 30 days after the date such Lender or the Agent makes written demand therefor in accordance with Section 5.6.
(c)    Evidence of Payments. As soon as practicable after the date of any payment by an Obligor of Taxes to a Governmental Authority pursuant to this Section 5.1, the relevant Obligor shall furnish the Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof, or other evidence of payment reasonably satisfactory to the Agent.
(d)    Status of Lenders. Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to any payments made under any Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrower and Agent, at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or Agent as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding. In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Agent as will enable the Borrower or the Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements. Each Lender agrees that if any documentation it previously delivered expires or becomes obsolete or inaccurate in any respect, it shall update such documentation or promptly notify the Borrower and the Agent in writing of its legal ineligibility to do so. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing,
(i)    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), two duly executed originals of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Lender is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding Tax;

-86-





(ii)    any Lender that is not a U.S. Person shall, to the extent it is legally eligible to do so, deliver to the Borrower and the Agent on or prior to the date on which such non-U.S. Person 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:
(A)    two duly executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E claiming the benefits of an income Tax treaty to which the United States is a party;
(B)    two duly executed originals of IRS Form W-8ECI;
(C)    in the case of a Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) two duly executed copies of a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit J-1 to the effect that (A) 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 and (B) the interest payments in question are not effectively connected with a U.S. trade or business conducted by such Lender (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”) and (y) two duly executed originals of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E; or
(D)    to the extent a Lender is not the beneficial owner (for example, where the Lender is a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes or a participating Lender), two duly executed originals of 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 J-2 or Exhibit J-3, IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided, that if the Lender is a partnership and not a participating Lender and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Lender are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit J-4 on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;
(iii)    any Lender that is not a U.S. Person shall 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 Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Agent), executed originals 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 applicable Withholding Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and
(iv)    if any payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to 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 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, to determine whether such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA and to determine the amount, if any, to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this clause (iv), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

-87-





Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5.1(d), a Lender shall not be required to deliver any documentation pursuant to this Section 5.1(d) that it is not legally eligible to deliver. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Agent to deliver to the Obligors and to any successor Agent any documentation provided by such Lender to the Agent pursuant to this Section 5.1(d).
(e)    Treatment of Certain Refunds. If any party determines, in its reasonable discretion, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 5.1 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 5.1), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 5.1 with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable and documented or invoiced out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this Section 5.1(e) (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 Section 5.1(e), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 5.1(e) the payment of which would place the indemnified party in a less favorable net after-Tax position than the indemnified party would have been in if the Tax subject to indemnification and giving rise to such refund had not been deducted, withheld or otherwise imposed and the indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid. This Section 5.1(e) shall not be construed to require any indemnified party to make available its Tax returns (or any other information relating to its Taxes that it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.
(f)    The Agent shall provide the Borrower with two duly completed original copies of, if it is a U.S. Person, IRS Form W-9 certifying that it is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding, and, if it is not a U.S. Person, (1) IRS Form W-8ECI with respect to payments to be received by it as a beneficial owner and (2) IRS Form W-8IMY (together with required accompanying documentation) with respect to payments to be received by it on behalf of the Lenders, certifying that, for such purpose, it is a U.S. branch that has agreed to be treated as a U.S. person for U.S. federal tax purposes. Notwithstanding any other provision of this clause (f), the Agent shall not be required to deliver any documentation that such Agent is not legally eligible to deliver as a result of a Change in Law after the Agreement Date.
(g)    Definitions. For purposes of this Section 5.1, the term “Lender” includes any Letter of Credit Issuer and the Swingline Lender.
5.2    Illegality.
(a)    If as a result of any Change in Law occurring after the later of the Agreement Date or the date that a Lender became a party to this Agreement, has made it unlawful, or any central bank or other Governmental Authority has asserted after such date that it is unlawful, for such Lender or its applicable lending office to make LIBOR Loans, then, on notice thereof by that Lender to the Borrower through the Agent, any obligation of that Lender to make LIBOR Loans shall be suspended until that Lender notifies the Agent and the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist.
(b)    If a Lender determines that, as a result of a Change in Law occurring after the later of the Agreement Date and the date such Lender became a party hereto, it is unlawful to maintain any LIBOR Loan, the Borrower shall, upon its receipt of notice of such fact and demand from such Lender (with a copy to the Agent), prepay in full such LIBOR Loans of that Lender then outstanding, together with interest accrued thereon and

-88-





amounts required under Section 5.4, either on the last day of the Interest Period, if that Lender may lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Loans to such day, or immediately, if that Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such LIBOR Loans. If the Borrower is required to so prepay any LIBOR Loans, then concurrently with such prepayment, the Borrower shall borrow from the affected Lender, in the amount of such repayment, a Base Rate Loan.
5.3    Increased Costs and Reduction of Return.
(a)    If any Lender determines that due to any Change in Law occurring after the later of the Agreement Date or the date such Lender became a party to this Agreement, there shall be any increase in the cost to such Lender of agreeing to make or making, funding, continuing, converting to or maintaining any LIBOR Loans (other than any increase in cost resulting from (i) Indemnified Taxes, (ii) Taxes described in clauses (b) through (d) of the definition of “Excluded Taxes”, or (iii) Connection Income Taxes), then, subject to clause (c) of this Section 5.3, the Borrower shall be liable for, and shall from time to time, upon demand (with a copy of such demand to be sent to the Agent), pay to the Agent for the account of such Lender, additional amounts as are sufficient to compensate such Lender for such increased costs.
(b)    If any Lender shall have determined that due to any Change in Law in respect of any Capital Adequacy Regulation occurring after the later of the Agreement Date or the date such Lender became a party to this Agreement that affects or would affect the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by such Lender or any corporation or other entity controlling such Lender and such Lender (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such corporation’s or other entity’s policies with respect to capital adequacy and such Lender’s desired return on capital) determines that the amount of such capital or liquidity is required to be increased as a consequence of its Commitments, loans, credits or obligations under this Agreement, then, upon demand of such Lender to the Borrower through the Agent, subject to clause (c) of this Section 5.3, the Borrower shall pay to such Lender, from time to time as specified by such Lender, additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Lender for such increase.
(c)    Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 5.3 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 the foregoing provisions of this Section 5.3 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than six months prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of the event giving rise to such increased costs or reductions and of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the event giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the six-month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof). Notwithstanding any other provision herein, no Lender shall demand compensation pursuant to this Section 5.3 if it shall not at the time be the general policy or practice of such Lender to demand such compensation in similar circumstances for similarly situated borrowers under comparable provisions of other credit agreements, if any.
5.4    Funding Losses. The Borrower shall reimburse each Lender and hold each Lender harmless from any loss or expense which such Lender may sustain or incur as a consequence of:
(a)    the failure of the Borrower to borrow a LIBOR Loan after the Borrower has given (or is deemed to have given) a Notice of Borrowing;
(b)    the failure of the Borrower to continue a LIBOR Loan or convert a Loan into a LIBOR Loan after the Borrower has given (or is deemed to have given) a Notice of Continuation/Conversion; or

-89-





(c)    the prepayment or other payment (including after acceleration thereof) of any LIBOR Loans on a day that is not the last day of the relevant Interest Period (including, without limitation, any payment in respect thereof pursuant to Section 2.6(f)(ii) or 5.8),
including any loss or expense arising from the liquidation or reemployment of funds obtained by it to maintain its LIBOR Loans (but not in respect of lost profits) or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained.
5.5    Inability to Determine Rates. (a) If the Agent determines that for any reason adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the LIBOR for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed LIBOR Loan or that the LIBOR Rate for any requested Interest Period with respect to a proposed LIBOR Loan does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to the Lenders of funding such LIBOR Loan, the Agent will promptly so notify the Borrower and each Lender thereof. Thereafter, the obligation of the Lenders to make or maintain LIBOR Loans hereunder shall be suspended until the Agent revokes such notice in writing. Upon receipt of such notice, the Borrower may revoke any Notice of Borrowing or Notice of Continuation/Conversion then submitted by any of them. If the Borrower does not revoke such notice, the Lenders shall make, convert or continue the Loans, as proposed by the Borrower, in the amount specified in the applicable notice submitted by the Borrower, but such Loans shall be made, converted or continued as Base Rate Loans instead of LIBOR Loans.
(b)    If at any time the Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) that (i) the circumstances set forth in Section 5.5(a) have arisen and such circumstances are unlikely to be temporary or (ii) the circumstances set forth in Section 5.5(a) have not arisen but the supervisor for the administrator of the LIBOR Rate or a Governmental Authority having jurisdiction over the Agent has made a public statement identifying a specific date after which the LIBOR Rate shall no longer be used for determining interest rates for syndicated loans, then the Agent and the Borrower shall endeavor to establish an alternate rate of interest to the LIBOR Rate that gives due consideration to the then prevailing market convention for determining a rate of interest for syndicated loans in the U.S. 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; provided that, if such alternate rate of interest shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for the purposes of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 12.1, 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, written notice from the Required Lenders stating that such Required Lenders object to such amendment.
5.6    Certificates of Agent. If the Agent or any Lender claims reimbursement or compensation under this Article V, the Agent or the affected Lender shall determine the amount thereof and shall deliver to the Borrower (with a copy to the Agent) a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the amount payable to the Agent or the affected Lender, and such certificate shall be conclusive and binding on the Borrower in the absence of manifest error; provided that, except for compensation under Section 5.1, the Borrower shall not be obligated to pay the Agent or such Lender any compensation attributable to any period prior to the date that is ninety (90) days prior to the date on which the Agent or such Lender first gave notice to the Borrower of the circumstances entitling such Lender to compensation. The Borrower shall pay the Agent or such Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 10 Business Days after receipt thereof.
5.7    Survival. The agreements and obligations of the Borrower and each Recipient in this Article V shall survive the payment of all other Obligations and termination of this Agreement.

(b)    The Borrower shall, and shall cause each of its Restricted Subsidiaries to, permit representatives and independent contractors of the Agent and/or the Collateral Agent (at the expense of the Borrower) to visit and inspect any of the Borrower’s or any of their Restricted Subsidiaries’ properties (to the extent it is within such Person’s control to permit such inspection), to examine the Borrower’s and its Restricted Subsidiaries’ corporate, financial and operating records, and make copies thereof or abstracts therefrom, to examine and audit the Collateral (to the extent it is within such Person’s control to permit such examination and audit and subject to the limitations otherwise set forth in this Section 8.4), and to discuss the Borrower’s and its Restricted Subsidiaries’ affairs, finances and accounts with their respective directors, officers and independent public accountants, at such reasonable times during normal business hours, upon reasonable advance notice to the Borrower (and subject, in the case of any such meetings or advice from such independent public accountants, to such accountants’ customary policies and procedures); provided, however, excluding any such visits and inspections during the continuation of an Event of Default and without in any way limiting the rights of the Agent and/or the Collateral Agent set forth in the last sentence of this clause (b), neither the Agent nor the Collateral Agent shall exercise such rights more often than once during any calendar year absent the existence of an Event of Default at the Borrower’s expense; and provided, further, that when an Event of Default exists, the Agent and the Collateral Agent (or any of their respective representatives or independent contractors) may do any of the foregoing at the expense of the Borrower at any time during normal business hours and upon reasonable advance notice. The Agent and the Collateral Agent shall give the Borrower the opportunity to participate in any discussions with the Borrower’s or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries’ independent public accountants. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Article VI, none of Holdings, the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary will be required to disclose, permit the inspection, examination or making copies or abstracts of, or discussion of, any document, information or other matter (i) that constitutes non-financial trade secrets or non-financial proprietary information, (ii) in respect of which disclosure to the Agent, the Collateral Agent or any Lender (or their respective representatives or contractors) is prohibited by applicable Law or any binding agreement or (iii) that is subject to attorney-client or similar privilege or constitutes attorney work product. The Agent and the Collateral Agent may carry out investigations and reviews of each Obligor’s property at the reasonable expense of the Borrower (including field audits conducted by the Agent and the Collateral Agent) (each, a “Field Examination”) and, absent the continuance of an Event of Default, during each period of twelve (12) consecutive calendar months commencing on or after the Agreement Date, the Agent and the Collateral Agent may, collectively, carry out, at the Borrower’s expense, one (1) Field Examination (it being agreed and acknowledged that the Field Examination delivered to the Agent on or prior to the Agreement Date shall constitute the Field

Each flood insurance policy shall provide that the insurer will give the Agent 45 days written notice of cancellation or non-renewal.
(c)    The Borrower shall cause the Collateral Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Collateral Agent and the other Secured Parties, to be named as secured parties or mortgagees and additional loss payees or additional insureds, as applicable, in a manner reasonably acceptable to the Collateral Agent, under all insurance policies required to be maintained by the Obligors under clauses (a) and (b) above. Each such policy of insurance shall contain a clause or endorsement requiring the insurer to give not less than thirty days prior written notice to the Collateral Agent in the event of cancellation of the policy for any reason whatsoever and, if obtainable, a clause or endorsement stating that the interest of the Collateral Agent shall not be impaired or invalidated by any act or neglect of any Obligor or the owner of any Real Estate for purposes more hazardous than are permitted by such policy. If the Obligors fail to procure any such material insurance or to pay the premium therefor when due, during the continuance of an Event of Default and after providing written notice thereof to the Borrower, the Agent may, and at the direction of the Required Lenders shall, do so from the proceeds of Revolving Loans on a pro rata basis.
