2.1. Promise to Pay.

Borrowers hereby unconditionally promise to pay each Lender, the outstanding principal amount of all Term Loans advanced to Borrowers by such Lender and accrued and unpaid interest thereon and any other amounts due hereunder as and when due in accordance with this Agreement.

(a) Availability. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the Lenders agree, severally and not jointly, to make term loans to Borrowers on the Effective Date in the aggregate amount of Sixty Million Dollars ($60,000,000), to be allocated as between the Borrowers as the Borrowers shall determine, according to, and not exceeding the amount of, such Lender’s respective Term Commitment as set forth on Schedule 1.1 hereto (such term loans are hereinafter referred to singly as a “Term Loan”, and collectively as the “Term Loans”); provided that no Lender shall have any liability for the failure of any other Lender to do so. After repayment, no Term Loan may be re-borrowed.

(b) Repayment. Borrowers shall make quarterly payments of interest in arrears commencing on the first (1st) Payment Date following the Effective Date, and continuing on the Payment Date of each successive quarter thereafter. All unpaid principal and accrued and unpaid interest with respect to the Term Loans are due and payable in full on the Term Loan Maturity Date. The Term Loans may be prepaid only in accordance with Section 2.2(c) or 2.2(d), except as provided in Section 9.1.

(c) Mandatory Prepayments.

(i) Upon the receipt of any Net Cash Proceeds of any Transfer by (or for the benefit of) Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries (other than (i) any Permitted License, the Net Cash Proceeds of which for all such Permitted Licenses from and after the Effective Date do not exceed $10,000,000 in


the aggregate and which have been duly notified to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders in writing and (ii) any Transfer of Inventory in the ordinary course of business), each Lender may elect to require Borrowers to prepay its Term Loans, upon written notice given to Administrative Agent, the other Lenders and Borrowers (each such notice, a “Transfer Prepayment Election”) no later than ten (10) Business Days after receipt by the Administrative Agent of a Transfer Notice with respect to such Transfer, in which case Borrowers shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for distribution to the Lenders that have submitted a Transfer Prepayment Election within such ten (10) Business Day period, an amount equal to their respective Pro Rata Share of 100% of the Net Cash Proceeds received by Horizon Pharma or such Subsidiary in connection with such Transfer, such payment by the Borrowers to be on the date that is thirteen (13) Business Days after receipt by the Administrative Agent of the applicable Transfer Notice, to the extent such Net Cash Proceeds exceed $500,000 in the aggregate in any fiscal year. Nothing contained in this clause (i) shall permit any Borrower or any of their respective Subsidiaries to make a Transfer of any property that is not otherwise permitted by the terms of this Agreement. Borrowers shall promptly, and in any event no later than two (2) Business Days thereafter, notify Administrative Agent and Lenders in writing of the receipt (directly or indirectly) of Net Cash Proceeds of any Transfer by (or for the benefit of) Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries, other than those excluded as set forth above, which notice shall include reasonable detail as to the nature and amount thereof (each such notice, a “Transfer Notice”).

For the avoidance of doubt, no Change in Control Premium or Special Premium shall be payable in connection with a prepayment solely pursuant to this Section 2.2(c)(i).

(ii) Upon the receipt of any Extraordinary Receipts by (or for the benefit of) any Credit Party, each Lender may elect to require Borrowers to prepay its Term Loans, upon written notice given to Administrative Agent, the other Lenders and Borrowers (each such notice, an “Extraordinary Receipts Prepayment Election”) no later than ten (10) Business Days after receipt by the Administrative Agent of an Extraordinary Receipts Notice with respect to the receipt of such Extraordinary Receipts, in which case Borrowers shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for distribution to the Lenders that have submitted an Extraordinary Receipts Prepayment Election within such ten (10) Business Day period, an amount equal to their respective Pro Rata Share of 100% of such Extraordinary Receipts received by such Credit Party, such payment by the Borrowers to be on the date that is thirteen (13) Business Days after receipt by the Administrative Agent of the applicable Extraordinary Receipts Notice.

After receipt by the Administrative Agent of an Extraordinary Receipts Prepayment Election from any Lender, the Administrative Agent shall, no later than two (2) Business Days thereafter, notify Borrowers and such Lender of its respective Pro Rata Share of the applicable prepayment. For the avoidance of doubt, no Prepayment Premium, Makewhole Amount, Change in Control Premium or Special Premium shall be payable in connection with a prepayment solely pursuant to this Section 2.2(c)(ii).

(iii) The foregoing to the contrary notwithstanding, a Borrower shall not be required to make a prepayment otherwise required pursuant to Section 2.2(c)(i) or Section 2.2(c)(ii) with Reinvestment Eligible Funds so long as: (A) no Default or Event of Default has occurred and is continuing on the date the applicable Credit Party receives such Reinvestment Eligible Funds or on the date such amounts are to be released from the Reinvestment Proceeds Account to the applicable Borrower for reinvestment pursuant to this Section 2.2(c)(iii), (B) such Borrower delivers a notice (a “Reinvestment Notice”) on or prior to the date that the applicable Credit Party receives the monies constituting such Reinvestment Eligible Funds notifying Administrative Agent and the Lenders of the intent of such Credit Party to use such Reinvestment Eligible Funds (1) to repair, restore, or replace the assets that were the subject of the Transfer or Event of Loss giving rise to such amounts with long term assets (for the avoidance of doubt, which long term assets shall not include Inventory) of equal or greater fair market value which will be useful in the conduct of its business in accordance with past practice, (2) within the

 

- 2 -


period specified in such notice, which period shall not exceed the earlier of (x) 180 days after the receipt of such Reinvestment Eligible Funds by such Credit Party and (y) the Term Loan Maturity Date, and (C) pending the reinvestment described in clause (B)(1) above, such Reinvestment Eligible Amounts are deposited in a cash collateral account over which Administrative Agent (on behalf of the Secured Parties) has a perfected first-priority Lien pursuant to a Control Agreement in form and substance satisfactory to the Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders (the “Reinvestment Proceeds Account”). If all or any portion of such Reinvestment Eligible Funds are not used within the period specified in the Reinvestment Notice (subject to the limitations set forth in the preceding sentence regarding the outside date of any such period), the remaining portion shall be applied to the Term Loans on the last day of such specified period (or such lesser period as a result of the limitations set forth in the preceding sentence) in accordance with Section 2.2(c)(i) or Section 2.2(c)(ii), as applicable.

(iv) Upon a Change in Control, each Lender may elect to require Borrowers to prepay its Term Loans in full, upon written notice given to Administrative Agent and Borrowers (each such notice, a “Change in Control Prepayment Election”) no later than ten (10) Business Days after receipt by the Administrative Agent of a Change in Control Notice with respect to the consummation of such Change in Control, in which case Borrowers shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for distribution to the Lenders that have submitted a Change in Control Prepayment Election within such ten (10) Business Day period in accordance with their respective Pro Rata Share thereof, an amount equal to the sum of the Term Loans of all Lenders that have submitted a Change in Control Prepayment Election together with an amount equal to the applicable Change in Control Premium, such payment by the Borrowers to be on the date that is thirteen (13) Business Days after receipt by the Administrative Agent of the applicable Change in Control Notice.

For the avoidance of doubt, no Prepayment Premium, Makewhole Amount or Special Premium shall be payable in connection solely with a prepayment pursuant to this Section 2.2(c)(iv).

(v) Each Lender may elect to require Borrowers to prepay a portion of its Term Loans on the first day of each fiscal quarter of Horizon Pharma, commencing with the fiscal quarter beginning April 1, 2013 by delivering an Amortization Election to the Administrative Agent, the other Lenders and the Borrowers no later than fifteen (15) calendar days preceding the beginning of each such fiscal quarter, which notice shall indicate such Lender’s election to require Borrowers to prepay a portion of its Term Loans and the aggregate amount of such Lender’s Term Loans (not to exceed $3,978,296 per Amortization Payment Date) such Lender is electing to require Borrowers to prepay. On the applicable Amortization Payment Date, Borrowers shall prepay to the Administrative Agent, for distribution to the Lenders that have delivered an Amortization Election no later than (15) calendar days preceding the beginning of the applicable fiscal quarter, an amount determined as follows:

(1) if all Lenders that have delivered Amortization Elections within such fifteen (15) calendar day period have elected, in the aggregate, to have $3,978,296 or less of their Term Loans prepaid, Borrowers shall prepay to the Administrative Agent, for distribution to each such Lender, the amount of each such Lender’s Term Loans that each such Lender has elected to have prepaid;

(2) if all Lenders that have delivered Amortization Elections within such fifteen (15) calendar day period have elected, in the aggregate, to have more than $3,978,296 of their Term Loans prepaid, Borrowers shall prepay to the Administrative Agent, for distribution to each such Lender, an amount of each such Lender’s Term Loans equal to the lesser of (x) $3,978,296 multiplied by such Lender’s Pro Rata Share, and (y) the amount of such Lender’s Term Loans such Lender has elected to have prepaid (the sum of all such resulting payments on such Amortization Payment Date, the “Initial Amortization Amount”). If the Initial Amortization Amount is less than $3,978,296 then each Lender that received less than the amount set forth in its Amortization Election as a result of the application of subclause (x) in the immediately preceding

 

- 3 -


sentence (the “Specified Lenders”) shall also receive its Pro Rata Share (calculated on a basis taking into account only the Term Loans of the Specified Lenders) of an amount equal to $3,978,296 less the Initial Amortization Amount.

For the avoidance of doubt, no Prepayment Premium, Makewhole Amount, Change in Control Premium or Special Premium shall be payable in connection solely with a prepayment pursuant to this Section 2.2(c)(v).

(d) Permitted Prepayment of Term Loans. Borrowers shall have the option to prepay all, but not less than all, of the Term Loans advanced by the Lenders under this Agreement, provided (i) Borrowers provide written notice to Administrative Agent of their election (which shall be irrevocable unless the Required Lenders otherwise consent in writing) to prepay the Term Loans at least ten (10) Business Days prior to such prepayment and (ii) such prepayment shall be accompanied by any amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.2(f)(i) or Section 2.2(f)(ii), as applicable, and all other amounts payable or accrued and not yet paid hereunder and the other Loan Documents.

(e) Prepayment Application. All prepayments by the Borrowers pursuant to Section 2(c) and Section 2(d) shall be accompanied by accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount to be prepaid to the date of payment in full, which, for the avoidance of doubt, shall not include any such interest that has already been capitalized and added to the then outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans in accordance with Section 2.3(a). Any prepayment of the Term Loans (together with any accompanying Makewhole Amount, Prepayment Premium, Change in Control Premium or Special Premium, as the case may be, that is payable pursuant to Section 2.2(c)(iv) or Section 2.2(f)), whether pursuant to Section 2.2(c) or Section 2.2(d) or as a result of acceleration of the Term Loans pursuant to Section 9, shall be paid to the Administrative Agent for application to the Obligations in the following order: (i) first, to due and unpaid Agent Expenses, (ii) second, to due and unpaid Lender Expenses , (iii) third, to accrued and unpaid interest at the Default Rate, (iv) fourth, to accrued and unpaid interest at the non-Default Rate, (v) fifth, to the Prepayment Premium, Makewhole Amount, or Change in Control Premium, (vi) sixth, to the outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans being prepaid and (vii) seventh, to any remaining amounts then due and payable hereunder.

(ii) Any prepayments of the Term Loans by the Borrowers (w) pursuant to Section 2.2(c)(i), (x) pursuant to Section 2.2(d), (y) as a result of the acceleration of the Term Loan Maturity Date due to an Event of Default described in Section 8.5 or (z) as a result of any other circumstance where any of the Credit Parties violate their obligations under this Agreement to avoid payment of such Prepayment Premium, in any such case, on or after the two and one half year anniversary of the Effective Date and prior to the four and one half year anniversary of the Effective Date shall be accompanied by payment of the applicable Prepayment Premium.

(iii) In addition to the foregoing, in the event that any prepayment or repayment of the Term Loans occurs or is required to occur on or prior to the Term Loan Maturity Date due to an automatic acceleration of the Obligations pursuant to Section 9.1(a), the Borrowers shall be required to pay an additional prepayment premium (the “Special Premium”) in an amount equal to $9,187,859 multiplied by a fraction equal to the number of days from the date of acceleration to the Term Loan Maturity Date over 1795.

 

  2.3. Payment of Interest on the Credit Extensions.

 

- 4 -


(a) Interest Rate. Subject to Section 2.3(b), the principal amount outstanding under the Term Loans shall accrue interest at a fixed per annum rate (which rate shall be fixed for the duration of the Term Loans) equal to seventeen percent (17%) per annum, which interest shall be payable quarterly in accordance with Sections 2.2(b) and 2.3(d). Interest shall accrue on each Term Loan commencing on, and including, the day on which the Term Loan is made, and shall accrue on a Term Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which the Term Loan or such portion is paid. Notwithstanding the foregoing, provided that no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Borrowers may by written notice to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders no later than sixty (60) days prior to the applicable Payment Date (each, a “PIK Election Notice”) elect to pay interest on the Term Loans as follows: twelve percent (12%) per annum in cash and five percent (5%) per annum paid-in-kind (which payment-in-kind interest shall be capitalized on the applicable Payment Date and such capitalized amount shall be added to the then outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans and constitute outstanding principal for all purposes hereof). Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent the Obligations are accelerated or prepaid for any reason prior to delivery of a PIK Election Notice for the applicable Payment Date, if a PIK Election Notice was delivered in connection with the immediately preceding Payment Date, interest on the Obligations so accelerated or prepaid, as the case may be, for the period from and after the immediately preceding Payment Date through the date of such acceleration or prepayment, shall be paid as follows: twelve percent (12%) per annum in cash and five percent (5%) per annum paid-in-kind (which payment-in-kind interest shall be capitalized on the applicable Payment Date and such capitalized amount shall be added to the then outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans and constitute outstanding principal for all purposes hereof).

(b) Default Rate. Immediately upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default (and without notice to the Borrowers or demand by the Lenders for payment thereof), the Obligations shall bear interest at a rate per annum which is four percentage points (4.00%) above the rate that is otherwise applicable thereto (the “Default Rate”), and such interest shall be payable entirely in cash on demand of the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders; provided that, absent payment of such interest at the Default Rate when due, such Default Rate interest shall be capitalized on the last day of each fiscal month and such capitalized amount shall be added to the then outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans and constitute outstanding principal for all purposes hereof. Payment, capitalization or acceptance of the increased interest rate provided in this Section 2.3(b) is not a permitted alternative to timely payment and shall not constitute a waiver of any Event of Default or otherwise prejudice or limit any rights or remedies of Administrative Agent.

(c) 360-Day Year. Interest shall be computed on the basis of a 360-day year consisting of twelve (12) months of thirty (30) days.

(d) Payments. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all loan payments by Borrowers hereunder shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the Lenders to which such payments are owed, at the Administrative Agent’s office in immediately available funds on the date specified herein. Unless otherwise provided, interest is payable quarterly on the Payment Date of each calendar quarter. Payments of principal and/or interest received after 2:00 p.m. Eastern time are considered received at the opening of business on the next Business Day. When a payment is due on a day that is not a Business Day, the payment is due the next Business Day and additional fees or interest, as applicable, shall continue to accrue until paid. All payments to be made by Borrowers hereunder or under any other Loan Document, including payments of principal and interest made hereunder and pursuant to any other Loan Document, and all fees, expenses, indemnities and reimbursements, shall be made without set-off, recoupment or counterclaim, in lawful money of the United States and in immediately available funds.

(a) Facility Fee; Agent Fee. To the Lenders on the Effective Date, a fully earned, non-refundable facility fee of Six Hundred Thousand Dollars ($600,000) to be shared between the Lenders pursuant to their respective Pro Rata Share, and to the Administrative Agent on the Effective Date, the fully-earned, non-refundable first annual fee of Forty Five Thousand Dollars ($45,000). The Borrowers shall pay the annual fee of the Administrative Agent in the same amount on each anniversary of the Effective Date for so long as the Term Loan is outstanding;

 

- 5 -


(b) Lender Expenses; Agent Expenses. To the Lenders, all Lender Expenses incurred through and after the Effective Date, upon demand. To the Administrative Agent, all Agent Expenses incurred through and after the Effective Date, upon demand.

2.5. Requirements of Law; Increased Costs. In the event that any applicable Change in Law:

(a) Does or shall subject any Lender to any Tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement or any Term Loans made hereunder, or change the basis of taxation of payments to such Lender of principal, fee, interest or any other amount payable hereunder (except, in each case, Indemnified Taxes and Taxes described in clauses (b) through (c) of the definition of Excluded Taxes and Connection Income Taxes);

(b) Does or shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, capital requirement, special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirements against assets held by, or deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, advances or loans by, or other credit extended by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any applicable lending office of any Lender making Term Loans hereunder; or

(c) Does or shall impose on such Lender any other condition; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender (as determined by such Lender in good faith using calculation methods customary in the industry) of making, renewing or maintaining any Term Loan or to reduce any amount receivable in respect thereof or to reduce the rate of return on the capital of such Lender or any Person controlling such Lender,

then, in any such case, Borrowers shall promptly pay to the Administrative Agent for remittance to such Lender, upon its receipt of the certificate described below, any additional amounts necessary to compensate such Lender for such additional cost or reduced amounts receivable or rate of return as reasonably determined by such Lender with respect to this Agreement or the Term Loans made hereunder. If a Lender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.5, it shall promptly notify Borrowers through the Administrative Agent of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled, and a certificate as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to the foregoing sentence containing the calculation thereof in reasonable detail submitted by a Lender, through the Administrative Agent, to Borrowers shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. The provisions hereof shall survive the termination of this Agreement and payment of the outstanding Term Loans and all other Obligations. Failure or delay on the part of any Lender to demand compensation for any increased costs or reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital under this Section 2.5 shall not constitute a waiver of such Lender’s right to demand such compensation; provided that Borrowers shall not be under any obligation to compensate any Lender under this Section 2.5 with respect to increased costs or reductions with respect to any period prior to the date that is 180 days prior to the date of the delivery of the notice required pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this paragraph; provided further that the foregoing limitation shall not apply to any increased costs or reductions arising out of the retroactive application of any Change in Law within such 180-day period.

2.6. Taxes; Withholding, etc.

(a) All sums payable by any Credit Party hereunder and under the other Loan Documents shall (except to the extent required by law) be paid free and clear of, and without any deduction or withholding on account of, any Tax imposed, levied, collected, withheld or assessed by or within the United States of America or any political subdivision in or of the United States of America or any other jurisdiction from or to which a payment is made by or on behalf of any Credit Party or by any federation or organization of which the United States of America or any such jurisdiction is a member at the time of payment. In addition, Borrowers agree to pay, and shall indemnify and hold Administrative Agent and each Lender harmless from, Other Taxes, and within thirty days after the date of paying such sum, the Borrowers shall furnish to the Lender and the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof.

(b) If any Credit Party or any other Person is required by law to make any deduction or withholding on account of any Tax from any sum paid or payable by any Credit Party to the Administrative Agent or any Lender under any of the Loan Documents: (i) Borrowers shall notify the Administrative Agent of any such

 

- 6 -


requirement or any change in any such requirement as soon as any Borrower becomes aware of it; (ii) Borrowers shall pay any such Tax before the date on which penalties attach thereto, such payment to be made (if the liability to pay is imposed on any Credit Party) for its own account or (if that liability is imposed on the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be) on behalf of and in the name of the Administrative Agent or such Lender; (iii) if the Tax is an Indemnified Tax, the sum payable by such Credit Party in respect of which the relevant deduction, withholding or payment is required shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of that deduction, withholding or payment (including any deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 2.6(b)), the Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, receives on the due date a net sum equal to what it would have received had no such deduction, withholding or payment been required or made; and (iv) within thirty days after paying any sum from which it is required by law to make any deduction or withholding, and within thirty days after the due date of payment of any Tax which it is required by clause (ii) above to pay, Borrowers shall deliver to the Administrative Agent evidence satisfactory to the other affected parties of such deduction, withholding or payment and of the remittance thereof to the relevant taxing or other Governmental Authority. The Borrowers shall indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.6(b)) paid by each Lender and any liability (including penalties, interest and expense) arising therefrom or with respect thereto whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. Any indemnification payment pursuant to this Section 2.6 shall be made within thirty days from written demand therefor.

(c) Each Lender (including any assignee or participant that will be a Lender as of the Effective Date) that is not a United States Person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the IRC) for U.S. federal income Tax purposes (a “Non U.S. Lender”) shall deliver to the Administrative Agent for transmission to the Borrowers, on or prior to, the Effective Date and, the date on which a Lender transfer occurs, and at such other times as may be necessary in the determination of Borrowers or the Administrative Agent (each in the reasonable exercise of its discretion), two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8ECI or W-8IMY (along with Form W-9 or W-8BEN for each beneficial owner that it expects to receive, directly or indirectly, a payment of interest on a Term Loan), or any successor forms, properly completed and duly executed by such Lender, and such other documentation required under the IRC and reasonably requested by Borrowers to establish the appropriate amount of any deduction or withholding of United States federal Tax, if any, with respect to any payments to such Lender of principal, interest, fees or other amounts payable under any of the Loan Documents. If a Non U.S. Lender is an Approved Fund, partnership, trust, estate or other entity for which the amount of any deduction or withholding of Federal Tax will be determined at the owner, partner or beneficiary level, or if the Lender serves as an intermediary, such additional documentation shall include Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY (or any successor forms) and such other information as maybe necessary (i) to determine the appropriate amount of Federal Tax to deduct and withhold, and (ii) to allow the Borrowers to comply with their obligation to deduct and withhold any Tax and their Tax reporting obligations. Each non U.S. Lender that is not a bank described in Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the IRC shall provide a statement to the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers stating whether it, or any of the beneficial owners for whom it is receiving a payment of interest on a Term Loan, is entitled to claim an exemption from a deduction or withholding of Federal Tax pursuant to the portfolio interest exception contained in Section 871(h) or Section 881(c) of the IRC. If the Lender, or any of the beneficial owners for whom it is receiving a payment of interest on a Term Loan, is entitled to claim such an exemption it shall provide the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers a statement, signed under penalty of perjury, that it, or any of the beneficial owners for whom it is receiving a payment of interest on a Term Loan, is not (i) a “bank” as described in Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the IRC, or (ii) a 10% shareholder of any Borrower (within the meaning of Section 871(h)(3)(B) of the IRC). A non U.S. Lender claiming the portfolio interest exception shall also provide the Administrative Agent for transmission to the Borrowers with a properly completed and executed IRS Form W-8BEN or Form W-8IMY (with proper attachments, including Form W8-BEN for each beneficial owner for whom it is receiving a payment of interest on a Term Loan) and such other information as the Administrative Agent or the Borrowers may reasonably request. Each Lender (including any assignee or participant that will be a Lender as of the Effective Date) that is a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the IRC) for United States federal income Tax purposes (a “U.S. Lender”) shall deliver to the Administrative Agent and Borrowers on or prior to the Effective Date and, the date on which a Lender transfer occurs, two original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-9 (or any successor form), properly completed and duly executed by such Lender, certifying that such U.S. Lender is entitled to an exemption from United States backup withholding. Each Lender

 

- 7 -


required to deliver any forms, statements, certificates or other evidence with respect to United States federal Tax or backup withholding matters pursuant to this Section 2.6(c) hereby agrees, from time to time after the initial delivery by such Lender of such forms, certificates or other evidence, whenever a lapse in time, change in circumstances or law, or additional guidance by a Governmental Authority renders such forms, certificates or other evidence obsolete or inaccurate in any material respect, that such Lender shall promptly deliver to the Administrative Agent and the Borrowers two new original copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, W-8ECI, W-9 or W-8IMY (along with Forms W-9 and W-8BEN for each beneficial owner for whom it expects to receive a payment of interest on a Term Loan), or any successor form, as the case may be, properly completed and duly executed by such Lender, and such other documentation required under the IRC and reasonably requested by Borrowers to confirm or establish that such Lender is not subject to deduction, backup withholding or withholding of United States federal Tax with respect to payments to such Lender under the Loan Documents, or notify the Administrative Agent and Borrowers of its inability to deliver any such forms, certificates or other evidence. Borrowers shall not be required to pay any additional amount to any Non U.S. Lender under Section 2.6(b)(iii) if such Lender (or Administrative Agent) shall have failed (1) to timely deliver to the Administrative Agent (or the Borrowers) the forms, certificates or other evidence referred to in this Section 2.6(c), or (2) to notify the Administrative Agent and Borrowers of its inability to deliver any such forms, certificates or other evidence, as the case may be; provided, if such Lender shall have satisfied the requirements of the first sentence of this Section 2.6(c) on the Effective Date, nothing in this last sentence of this Section 2.6(c) shall relieve Borrowers of their obligations to pay any additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.6 in the event that, solely as a result of any change in any applicable law, treaty or governmental rule, regulation or order, or any change in the interpretation, administration or application thereof by any applicable Governmental Authority, such Lender is no longer properly entitled to deliver forms, certificates or other evidence at a subsequent date establishing the fact that such Lender is not subject to withholding as described herein.

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

(e) If any party determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Taxes or a credit or offset for any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 2.6 (including by the payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.6), it shall pay to the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund, credit or offset (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of such indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund). Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this paragraph (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, credit or offset such refund to such Governmental Authority. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this paragraph (e), in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this paragraph (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 indemnification payments or additional amounts giving rise to such refund had never been paid. This paragraph 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.

2.7. Defaulting Lenders. Anything contained herein to the contrary notwithstanding, in the event that any Lender, other than at the direction or request of any regulatory agency or authority, defaults (a “Defaulting Lender”) in its obligation to fund (a “Funding Default”) any Term Loan on the Effective Date when such funding

 

- 8 -


is due according to the terms and conditions hereof (in each case, a “Defaulted Loan”), then (a) during any Default Period with respect to such Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender shall be deemed not to be a “Lender” for purposes of voting on any matters (including the granting of any consents or waivers) with respect to any of the Loan Documents; and (b) to the extent permitted by applicable law, until such time as the Defaulting Lender shall have cured such Funding Default, (i) any voluntary prepayment of the Term Loans shall, if such paying Borrower so directs at the time of making such voluntary prepayment, be applied to the Term Loans of other Lenders as if such Defaulting Lender had no Term Loans outstanding, and (ii) any mandatory prepayment of the Term Loans shall, if such paying Borrower so directs at the time of making such mandatory prepayment, be applied to the Term Loans of other Lenders (but not to the Term Loans of such Defaulting Lender) as if such Defaulting Lender had funded all Defaulted Loans of such Defaulting Lender, it being understood and agreed that such paying Borrower shall be entitled to retain any portion of any mandatory prepayment of the Term Loans that is not paid to such Defaulting Lender solely as a result of the operation of the provisions of this clause (b). No Term Commitment of any Lender shall be increased or otherwise affected, and, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Section 2.7, performance by Borrowers of their obligations hereunder and the other Loan Documents shall not be excused or otherwise modified as a result of any Funding Default or the operation of this Section 2.7. The rights and remedies against a Defaulting Lender under this Section 2.7 are in addition to other rights and remedies which Borrowers may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect to any Funding Default and which the Administrative Agent or any Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender with respect to any Funding Default.

2.8. Evidence of Debt; Register; Lenders’ Books and Records; Term Loan Notes.

(a) Lenders’ Evidence of Debt. Each Lender shall maintain on its internal records an account or accounts evidencing the Obligations of each Borrower to such Lender, including the amounts of the Term Loans made by it and each repayment and prepayment in respect thereof. Any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on Borrowers, absent manifest error; provided, that the failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Lender’s Term Commitments or Borrowers’ Obligations in respect of any applicable Term Loans; and provided further, in the event of any inconsistency between the Register and any Lender’s records, the recordations in the Register shall govern, absent manifest error.

(b) Register. Administrative Agent (or its agent or sub-agent appointed by it) shall maintain at its principal office (as specified in, or as otherwise identified upon notice to the other parties hereto in accordance with, Section 11), a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of each Lender, such Lender’s Term Commitments, the related principal of, and stated interest on, the Term Loans of each Lender and the Term Loan Notes held by such Lender (the “Register”). The Register shall be available for inspection by Borrowers and any Lender (with respect to any entry relating to such Lender’s Term Loans) at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice. Administrative Agent shall record, or shall cause to be recorded, in the Register the Term Commitments and the related principal of, and interest on, the Term Loans of each Lender in accordance with the provisions of Section 13.1, and each repayment or prepayment in respect of the principal amount of the Term Loans and any such recordation shall be conclusive and binding on Borrowers and each Lender, absent manifest error; provided, failure to make any such recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Lender’s Term Commitments or Borrowers’ Obligations in respect of any Term Loan. Borrowers hereby designate Administrative Agent to serve as Borrowers’ agent solely for purposes of maintaining the Register as provided in this Section 2.8, and Borrowers hereby agree that, to the extent Administrative Agent serves in such capacity, Administrative Agent and its officers, directors, employees, agents, sub-agents and affiliates shall constitute “Indemnified Persons.”

(c) Term Loan Notes. If so requested by any Lender by written notice to Borrowers and Administrative Agent at least two Business Days prior to the Effective Date, or at any time thereafter, Borrowers with respect to such Term Loan shall execute and deliver to such Lender and/or, if applicable and if so specified in such notice, to any Person who is an assignee of such Lender pursuant to Section 13.1 on the Effective Date (or, if such notice is delivered after the Effective Date, promptly after Borrowers’ receipt of such notice) a Term Loan Note to evidence such Lender’s Term Loan.

(k) Except as noted on Schedule 5.5(k), no Credit Party is a party to, nor is it bound by, any Restricted License.

5.6. Adverse Proceedings, etc. Except as set forth on Schedule 5.6, there are no Adverse Proceedings, individually or in the aggregate, that could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Change.

5.9. Payment of Taxes. All federal, material state, material provincial and other material Tax returns and reports (or extensions thereof) of each Credit Party and its Subsidiaries required to be filed by any of them have been timely filed, and all Taxes reflected therein which are due and payable and all assessments, fees and other governmental charges upon any Credit Party and its Subsidiaries and upon their respective properties, assets, income, businesses and franchises which are due and payable have been paid when due and payable. No Credit Party knows of any proposed Tax deficiency or assessment against it or any of its Subsidiaries which is not being actively contested by it or such Subsidiary in good faith and by appropriate proceedings; provided, such reserves or other appropriate provisions, if any, as shall be required in conformity with Applicable Accounting Standards shall have been made or provided therefor. Each Credit Party has paid all amounts necessary to fund all present pension, profit sharing and deferred compensation plans in accordance with their terms, and no Credit Party has withdrawn from participation in, and has not permitted partial or complete termination of, or permitted the occurrence of any other event with respect to, any such plan which could reasonably be expected to result in any liability of such Credit Party, including any liability to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation or its successors or any other Governmental Authority. Neither any Credit Party nor any of its Subsidiaries have executed or filed with the Internal Revenue Service or any other Governmental Authority any agreement or other document extending, or having the effect of extending, the period for assessment or collection of any Taxes nor has there been any request in writing for such extension. Neither any Credit Party nor any of its Subsidiaries has agreed or has been requested to make any adjustment under IRC Section 481(a) by reason of a change in accounting method or otherwise. Neither any Credit Party nor any of its Subsidiaries has any obligation under any written tax sharing agreement. No Credit Party nor any Subsidiary has been a member of an affiliated group filing a consolidated U.S. federal income tax return within the meaning of the IRC and has no liability for Taxes of any other Person under IRC Section 1.1502-6 (or similar provision of foreign, state, or local law) as a transferee or successor, by contract, or otherwise. No Credit Party nor any Subsidiary has distributed stock of another Person, nor has had its stock distributed by another Person, in a transaction that was purported or intended to be governed in whole or in part by IRC Sections 355 or 361 during any year for which the statute of limitations does not bar the assessment of U.S. federal income tax.

5.10. Environmental Matters. Neither Horizon Pharma nor any of its Subsidiaries nor any of their respective Facilities or operations are subject to any outstanding written order, consent decree or settlement agreement with any Person relating to any Environmental Law, any Environmental Claim, or any Hazardous Materials Activity that, individually or in the aggregate, could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Change. Neither Horizon Pharma nor any of its Subsidiaries has received any letter or request for information under Section 104 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (42 U.S.C. § 9604) or any comparable state law. There are and, to each Credit Party’s knowledge, have been, no conditions, occurrences, or Hazardous Materials Activities which could reasonably be expected to form the basis of an Environmental Claim against Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries that, individually or in the aggregate, could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Change. To any Credit Party’s knowledge, no predecessor of Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries has filed any notice under any Environmental Law indicating past or present treatment of Hazardous Materials at any Facility, and neither Horizon Pharma’s nor any of its Subsidiaries’ operations involves the generation, transportation, treatment, storage or disposal of hazardous waste, as defined under 40 C.F.R. Parts 260 270 or any state equivalent. Compliance by Horizon Pharma and its Subsidiaries with all current or reasonably foreseeable future requirements pursuant to or under Environmental Laws could not be reasonably expected to result in, individually or in the aggregate, a Material Adverse Change. No event or condition has occurred or is occurring with respect to any Credit Party relating to any Environmental Law, any Release of Hazardous Materials, or any Hazardous Materials Activity which individually or in the aggregate has resulted in, or could reasonably be expected to result in, a Material Adverse Change.

5.11. Material Contracts. Schedule 5.11 contains a true, correct and complete list of all the Material Contracts in effect on the Effective Date, and, after giving effect to consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, except as described thereon, all such Material Contracts are in full force and effect and no defaults currently exist thereunder.

5.12. Regulatory Compliance. No Credit Party is an “investment company” or a company “controlled” by an “investment company” under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. No Credit Party is engaged as one of its important activities in extending credit for margin stock (under Regulations X, T and U of the Federal Reserve Board). Each Credit Party has complied in all material respects with the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act. Each of Horizon Pharma and its Subsidiaries and each of their respective ERISA Affiliates is in compliance with the applicable provisions of ERISA and the IRC and the regulations and published interpretations thereunder, except where such failure to comply could not reasonably be expected to result in any material liability of Horizon Pharma or its Subsidiaries or their respective ERISA Affiliates. No ERISA Event has occurred or is reasonably expected to occur that, when taken together with all other such ERISA Events, could reasonably be expected to result in material liability of Horizon Pharma or its Subsidiaries or any of their respective ERISA Affiliates or the imposition of a Lien on any of the property of Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries. The present value of all accumulated benefit obligations of all underfunded Plans (based on the assumptions used for purposes of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 87) did not, as of the date of the most recent financial statements reflecting such amounts, exceed by more than $250,000 the fair market value of the property of all such underfunded Plans. Using actuarial assumptions and computation methods consistent with subpart I of subtitle E of Title IV of ERISA, the aggregate liabilities of Horizon Pharma or its Subsidiaries or their respective ERISA Affiliates to all Multiemployer Plans in the event of a complete withdrawal therefrom, as of the close of the most recent fiscal year of each such Multiemployer Plan, could not reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Change.

5.13. Margin Stock. No Credit Party is engaged, nor will it engage, principally or as one of its important activities, in the business of extending credit for the purpose of “purchasing” or “carrying” any “margin stock” as such terms are defined in Regulation U of the Federal Reserve Board as now and from time to time hereafter in effect (such securities being referred to herein as “Margin Stock”). No Credit Party owns any Margin Stock, and none of the proceeds of the Credit Extensions or other extensions of credit under this Agreement will be used, directly or indirectly, for the purpose of purchasing or carrying any Margin Stock, for the purpose of reducing or retiring any Indebtedness that was originally incurred to purchase or carry any Margin Stock or for any other purpose that might cause any of the Term Loans or other extensions of credit under this Agreement to be considered a “purpose credit” within the meaning of Regulations T, U or X of the Federal Reserve Board. No Credit Party or any of its Subsidiaries will take or permit to be taken any action that might cause any Loan Document to violate any regulation of the Federal Reserve Board.

5.14. Subsidiaries; Investments; Affiliate Transactions. Neither Horizon Pharma nor any of its Subsidiaries owns any stock, partnership interest or other equity securities except for Permitted Investments. Set forth on Schedule 5.14 hereto is a list of all transactions with any Affiliate of any Credit Party or any holder of 10% or more of the Equity Interests of any Credit Party or any of their respective Subsidiaries or any Affiliate of any such Person.

5.15. Employee Matters. Neither Horizon Pharma nor any of its Subsidiaries is engaged in any unfair labor practice that could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Change. There is (a) no unfair labor practice complaint pending against Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries, or to the best knowledge of any Credit Party, threatened against any of them before the National Labor Relations Board and no grievance or arbitration proceeding arising out of or under any collective bargaining agreement that is so pending against Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries or to the best knowledge of any Credit Party, threatened against any of them, (b) no strike or work stoppage in existence or threatened involving Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries, and (c) to the best knowledge of any Credit Party, no union representation question existing with respect to the employees of Horizon Pharma or any of its Subsidiaries and, to the best knowledge of any Credit Party, no union organization activity that is taking place, except (with respect to any matter specified in clause (a), (b) or (c) above, either individually or in the aggregate) such as is not reasonably likely to result in a Material Adverse Change.

5.16. Use of Proceeds. Borrowers shall use the proceeds of the Credit Extensions solely to repay the outstanding Indebtedness under the Existing Kreos Loan Agreement and the Existing Oxford/SVB Loan Agreement in full and to fund their general business requirements and not for personal, family, household or agricultural purposes.

5.17. Full Disclosure. No representation or warranty of any Credit Party contained in any Loan Document or in any other documents, certificates or written statements furnished to the Administrative Agent or Lenders by or on behalf of any Credit Party for use in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby contains any untrue statement of a material fact or omits to state a material fact (known to any Credit Party, in the case of any document not furnished by it) necessary in order to make the statements contained herein or therein not misleading in light of the circumstances in which the same were made. Any projections and pro forma financial information contained in such materials are based upon good faith estimates and assumptions believed by the Credit Party furnishing such materials to be reasonable at the time made. There are no facts known (or which should upon the reasonable exercise of diligence be known) to any Credit Party (other than matters of a general economic nature) that, individually or in the aggregate, could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Change and that have not been disclosed herein or in such other documents, certificates and statements furnished to Lenders for use in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby.

5.18. Patriot Act. To the extent applicable, Horizon Pharma and each of its Subsidiaries is in compliance, in all material respects, with the (i) Trading with the Enemy Act, as amended, and each of the foreign assets control regulations of the Untied States Treasury Department (31 CFR, Subtitle B, Chapter V, as amended) and any other enabling legislation or executive order relating thereto, and (ii) Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA Patriot Act of 2001). No part of the proceeds of the Credit Extensions will be used, directly or indirectly, for any payments to any governmental official or employee, political party, official of a political party, candidate for political office, or anyone else acting in an official capacity, in order to obtain, retain or direct business or obtain any improper advantage, in violation of the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended.

5.19. Additional Representations and Warranties. The transactions contemplated by those agreements by and among the Credit Parties pursuant to which Horizon and Horizon AG became wholly owned Subsidiaries of Horizon Pharma have been consummated in accordance with their respective terms without derivation and the respective representations and warranties of the Credit Parties contained therein are true, accurate, and complete in all material respects on the Effective Date; provided, however, that such materiality qualifier shall not be applicable to any representations and warranties that already are qualified or modified by materiality in the text thereof; and provided, further that those representations and warranties expressly referring to a specific date shall be true, accurate and complete in all material respects as of such date.

Without limiting the generality of Section 6.13 and except as otherwise approved in writing by Required Lenders, the Credit Parties shall cause (i) each of their Domestic Subsidiaries (other than Domestic Subsidiaries owned indirectly by such Credit Party through a Foreign Subsidiary) and, (ii) to the extent no 956 Impact exists, Foreign Subsidiaries (other than Horizon UK, Horizon AG and Horizon GmbH), and Domestic Subsidiaries owned by such Credit Party indirectly through a Foreign Subsidiary, to, in each case, guarantee the Obligations and to cause each such Subsidiary to grant to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, a security interest in, subject to the limitations hereinafter set forth, all of such Subsidiary’s property and assets to secure such guaranty. Furthermore and except as otherwise approved in writing by Required Lenders, each Credit Party shall, and shall cause each of its Domestic Subsidiaries (other than Domestic Subsidiaries owned indirectly by such Credit Party through a Foreign Subsidiary) to, pledge all of the Equity Interests of each of its Domestic Subsidiaries (other than Domestic Subsidiaries owned indirectly through a Foreign Subsidiary) and first tier Foreign Subsidiaries (provided that, with respect to Horizon UK, Horizon AG and, if a 956 Impact exists, any other first tier Foreign Subsidiary, such pledge shall be limited to sixty five percent (65%) of such Foreign Subsidiary’s outstanding voting Equity Interests and one hundred percent (100%) of such Foreign Subsidiary’s outstanding non voting Equity Interests) and to the extent no 956 Impact exists, each of its Foreign Subsidiaries to pledge all of the Equity Interests of each of its Subsidiaries (other than the Equity Interests of Horizon GmbH owned by Horizon AG), in each instance, to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Secured Parties, to secure the Obligations.

A “956 Impact” will be deemed to exist to the extent the issuance of a guaranty by, grant of a Lien by, or pledge of greater than two-thirds of the voting Equity Interests of, a Foreign Subsidiary, would result in material and onerous incremental income tax liability as reasonably determined by the Borrowers as a result of the application of Section 956 of the IRC, taking into account actual anticipated repatriation of funds, foreign tax credits and other relevant factors.

Horizon Pharma shall provide a copy of such applicant’s detailed statement and the related complaint filed by Horizon Pharma to the Administrative Agent and the Lenders in accordance with Section 11, and, upon reasonable request of the Lenders, will make its officers available to provide reasonable updates to the Lenders regarding the status of such litigation.

  9. RIGHTS AND REMEDIES UPON AN EVENT OF DEFAULT

 

- 34 -


9.1. Rights and Remedies. While an Event of Default occurs and continues the Administrative Agent may, and at the direction of the Majority Lenders shall, without notice or demand:

(a) declare all Obligations immediately due and payable (but if an Event of Default described in Section 8.5 occurs all Obligations are automatically and immediately due and payable without any action by the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders), whereupon all Obligations for principal, interest, premium or otherwise shall become due and payable by the Borrowers without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind, which are all expressly waived by the Credit Parties hereby;

(b) stop advancing money or extending credit for Borrowers’ benefit under this Agreement;

(c) settle or adjust disputes and claims directly with Account Debtors for amounts on terms and in any order that the Required Lenders consider advisable, notify any Person owing Borrowers money of the Administrative Agent’s security interest in such funds, and verify the amount of such account;

(d) make any payments and do any acts it considers necessary or reasonable to protect the Collateral and/or its security interest in the Collateral. Borrowers shall assemble the Collateral if the Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders) requests and make it available as the Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders) designates. Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders) may enter premises where the Collateral is located, take and maintain possession of any part of the Collateral, and pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any Lien which appears to be prior or superior to its security interest and pay all expenses incurred. Borrowers grant Administrative Agent a license to enter and occupy any of their premises, without charge, to exercise any of Administrative Agent’s rights or remedies;

(e) apply to the Obligations (i) any balances and deposits of Borrowers it holds, or (ii) any amount held by Administrative Agent owing to or for the credit or the account of Borrowers;

(f) ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair, prepare for sale, advertise for sale, and sell the Collateral. Administrative Agent is hereby granted a non-exclusive, royalty-free license or other right to use, without charge, Borrowers’ labels, Patents, Copyrights, mask works, rights of use of any name, trade secrets, trade names, Trademarks, and advertising matter, or any similar property as it pertains to the Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale, and selling any Collateral and, in connection with Administrative Agent’s exercise of its rights under this Section, Borrowers’ rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements inure to Administrative Agent’s benefit;

(g) place a “hold” on any account maintained with Administrative Agent and/or deliver a notice of exclusive control, any entitlement order, or other directions or instructions pursuant to any Control Agreement or similar agreements providing control of any Collateral;

(h) demand and receive possession of Borrowers’ Books; and

(i) exercise all rights and remedies available to Administrative Agent and/or any Lender under the Collateral Documents or any other Loan Documents or at law or equity, including all remedies provided under the Code (including disposal of the Collateral pursuant to the terms thereof).

Administrative Agent and Lenders agree that in connection with any foreclosure or other exercise of rights under this Agreement or any other Loan Document with respect to the Intellectual Property, the rights of the licensees under the Permitted Licenses will not be terminated, limited or otherwise adversely affected so long as no default exists under the Permitted License in a way that would permit the licensor to terminate such Permitted License (commonly termed a non-disturbance).

9.2. Power of Attorney. Each Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints Administrative Agent as its lawful attorney-in-fact, exercisable upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, to: (a) endorse Borrower’s name on any checks or other forms of payment or security; (b) sign Borrower’s name on any invoice or bill of lading for any Account or drafts against Account Debtors; (c) settle and adjust disputes and claims

 

- 35 -


about the Accounts directly with Account Debtors, for amounts and on terms Administrative Agent determines reasonable; (d) make, settle, and adjust all claims under Borrower’s insurance policies; (e) pay, contest or settle any Lien, charge, encumbrance, security interest, and adverse claim in or to the Collateral, or any judgment based thereon, or otherwise take any action to terminate or discharge the same; and (f) transfer the Collateral into the name of Administrative Agent or a third party as the Code permits. Each Borrower hereby appoints Administrative Agent as its lawful attorney-in-fact to file or record any documents necessary to perfect or continue the perfection of Administrative Agent’s security interest in the Collateral regardless of whether an Event of Default has occurred until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) have been satisfied in full and neither Administrative Agent nor any Lender is under any further obligation to make Credit Extensions hereunder. Administrative Agent’s foregoing appointment as each Borrower’s attorney in fact, and all of Administrative Agent’s rights and powers, coupled with an interest, are irrevocable until all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations) have been fully repaid and performed and each Lender’s obligation to provide Credit Extensions terminates.

9.3. Protective Payments. If Borrowers fail to obtain the insurance called for by Section 6.5 or fail to pay any premium thereon or fail to pay any other amount which Borrowers are obligated to pay under this Agreement or any other Loan Document, Administrative Agent, at the direction of the Required Lenders, may obtain such insurance or make such payment, and all amounts so paid by Administrative Agent are Lender Expenses and immediately due and payable, bearing interest at the then highest rate applicable to the Obligations, and secured by the Collateral. Administrative Agent will make reasonable efforts to provide Borrowers with notice of Administrative Agent obtaining such insurance at the time it is obtained or within a reasonable time thereafter. No payments by Administrative Agent are deemed an agreement to make similar payments in the future or Administrative Agent’s waiver of any Event of Default.

9.4. Application of Payments and Proceeds Upon Default. If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Administrative Agent shall apply any funds in its possession, whether from Borrower account balances, payments, proceeds realized as the result of any collection of Accounts or other disposition of the Collateral, or otherwise, to the Obligations in such order as the Required Lenders shall determine in their sole discretion; it being understood that any such application of funds made for the benefit of the Lenders shall be made in accordance with their Pro Rata Share unless otherwise provided in this Agreement or any other Loan Document. Any surplus shall be paid to Borrowers or other Persons legally entitled thereto; Borrowers shall remain liable to Administrative Agent and the Lenders for any deficiency. If Administrative Agent (at the direction of the Required Lenders, in their good faith business judgment), directly or indirectly enters into a deferred payment or other credit transaction with any purchaser at any sale of Collateral, Administrative Agent shall have the option, exercisable at any time (acting at the direction of the Required Lenders), of either reducing the Obligations by the principal amount of the purchase price or deferring the reduction of the Obligations until the actual receipt by Administrative Agent of cash therefor.

9.5. Administrative Agent’s Liability for Collateral. So long as Administrative Agent complies with reasonable agency practices regarding the safekeeping of the Collateral in the possession or under the control of Administrative Agent, Administrative Agent shall not be liable or responsible for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b) any loss or damage to the Collateral; or (c) any act or default of any carrier, warehouseman, bailee, or other Person. In no event shall Administrative Agent have any liability for any diminution in the value of the Collateral for any reason. Borrowers bear all risk of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral.

9.6. No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. Administrative Agent’s failure, at any time or times, to require strict performance by Borrowers of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall not waive, affect, or diminish any right of Administrative Agent thereafter to demand strict performance and compliance herewith or therewith. No waiver hereunder shall be effective unless signed by the party granting the waiver and then is only effective for the specific instance and purpose for which it is given. Administrative Agent’s rights and remedies under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents are cumulative. Administrative Agent has all rights and remedies provided under the Code, by law, or in equity. Administrative Agent’s exercise of one right or remedy is not an election and shall not preclude Administrative Agent from exercising any other remedy under this Agreement or other remedy available at law or in equity, and Administrative Agent’s waiver of any Event of Default

 

- 36 -


is not a continuing waiver. Administrative Agent’s delay in exercising any remedy is not a waiver, election, or acquiescence.

9.7. Demand Waiver. Borrowers waive demand, notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any default, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension, or renewal of accounts, documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees held by Administrative Agent on which Borrowers are liable.

The Administrative Agent shall be entitled to refrain from any act or the taking of any action (including the failure to take an action) in connection herewith or any of the other Loan Documents or from the exercise of any power, discretion or authority vested in it hereunder or thereunder unless and until the

 

- 37 -

(c) Delegation of Duties. The Administrative Agent may perform any and all of its duties and exercise its rights and powers under this Agreement or under any other Loan Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by the Administrative Agent.

Lender with any credit or other information with respect thereto, whether coming into its possession before the making of the Term Loans or at any time or times thereafter, and the Administrative Agent shall not have any responsibility with respect to the accuracy of or the completeness of any information provided to Lenders.

If any indemnity furnished to the Administrative Agent for any purpose shall, in the opinion of the Administrative Agent, be insufficient or become impaired, the Administrative Agent may call for additional indemnity and cease, or not commence, to do the acts indemnified against until such additional indemnity is furnished; provided, in no event shall this sentence require any Lender to indemnify the Administrative Agent against any liability, obligation, loss, damage, penalty, action, judgment, suit, cost, expense or disbursement in excess of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share thereof; and provided further, this sentence shall not be deemed to require any Lender to indemnify the Administrative Agent against any liability, obligation, loss, damage, penalty, action, judgment, suit, cost, expense or disbursement described in the proviso in the immediately preceding sentence.

The Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving thirty days’ prior written notice thereof to Lenders and Borrowers, and the Administrative Agent may be removed at any time with or without cause by an instrument or concurrent instruments in writing delivered to Borrowers and the Administrative Agent and signed by Required Lenders. Upon any such notice of resignation or any such removal, Required Lenders shall have the right, upon five Business Days’ notice to Borrowers, to appoint a successor Administrative Agent. Upon the acceptance of any appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, that successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the resigning or removed Administrative Agent and the resigning or removed Administrative Agent shall promptly transfer to such successor Administrative Agent all sums, together with all records and other documents necessary or appropriate in connection with the performance of the duties of the successor Administrative Agent under the Loan Documents. If the Required Lenders have not appointed a successor Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent shall have the right to appoint a financial institution to act as Administrative Agent hereunder and in any case, the Administrative Agent’s resignation shall become effective on the thirtieth day after such notice of resignation. If neither the Required Lenders nor the Administrative Agent has appointed a successor Administrative Agent, the Required Lenders shall be deemed to have succeeded to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the resigning Administrative Agent. After any resigning or removed Administrative Agent’s resignation or removal hereunder as Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Section 10 shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent hereunder.

10.8. Collateral Documents and Guaranty.

(a) Administrative Agent under Collateral Documents and Guaranty. Each Lender hereby further authorizes the Administrative Agent, on behalf of and for the benefit of the Secured Parties, to be the agent for and representative of the Lenders with respect to any guaranty, the Collateral and the Collateral Documents. Subject to Section 13.5, without further written consent or authorization from any Lenders, the Administrative Agent shall, at the request and expense of Credit Parties, execute any documents or instruments necessary to, (i) in

 

- 39 -


connection with a sale or disposition of assets permitted by this Agreement, release any Lien encumbering any item of Collateral that is the subject of such sale or other disposition of assets or to which Required Lenders (or such other Lenders as may be required to give such consent under Section 13.5) have otherwise consented or (ii) release any Guarantor from any guaranty or with respect to which Required Lenders (or such other Lenders as may be required to give such consent under Section 13.5) have otherwise consented.

(b) Right to Realize on Collateral and Enforce Guaranty. Anything contained in any of the Loan Documents to the contrary notwithstanding, each Credit Party, the Administrative Agent and each Lender hereby agree that (i) no Lender shall have any right individually to realize upon any of the Collateral or to enforce any guaranty, it being understood and agreed that all powers, rights and remedies hereunder may be exercised solely by the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties in accordance with the terms hereof and all powers, rights and remedies under the Collateral Documents may be exercised solely by the Administrative Agent, and (ii) in the event of a foreclosure by the Administrative Agent of any of the Collateral pursuant to a public or private sale or other disposition, the Administrative Agent or any Lender may be the purchaser or licensor of any or all of such Collateral at any such sale or other disposition and the Administrative Agent, as agent for and representative of the Lenders (but not any Lender or Lenders in its or their respective individual capacities unless Required Lenders shall otherwise agree in writing) shall be entitled, for the purpose of bidding and making settlement or payment of the purchase price for all or any portion of the Collateral sold at any such public sale, to use and apply any of the Obligations as a credit on account of the purchase price for any Collateral payable by the Administrative Agent at such sale or other disposition.

10.9. Withholding Taxes.

To the extent required by any applicable law, the Administrative Agent may withhold from any payment to any Lender an amount equivalent to any applicable withholding Tax. If the Internal Revenue Service or any other Governmental Authority asserts a claim that the Administrative Agent did not properly withhold Tax from amounts paid to or for the account of any Lender because the appropriate form was not delivered or was not properly executed or because such Lender failed to notify the Administrative Agent of a change in circumstance which rendered the exemption from, or reduction of, withholding Tax ineffective or for any other reason, such Lender shall indemnify the Administrative Agent fully for all amounts paid, directly or indirectly, by the Administrative Agent as Tax or otherwise, including any penalties or interest and together with all expenses (including legal expenses, allocated internal costs and out-of-pocket expenses) incurred.

If to any Lender at the address set forth below such Lender’s name on the signature pages hereto or on the relevant Assignment Agreement (or at such other address as such party shall specify to the other parties in writing.

11.2. Each Credit Party further agrees that the Administrative Agent may make any communications available to the Lenders by posting such communications on SyndTrak or a substantially similar secure electronic transmission system (the “Platform”). Any such posting shall be deemed notice to the Lenders for all purposes hereunder. The Platform is provided “as is” and “as available.” The Administrative Agent does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of any such communications, or the adequacy of the Platform and expressly disclaims liability for errors or omissions in the communications. No warranty of any kind, express, implied or statutory, including, without limitation, any warranty of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement of third party rights or freedom from viruses or other code defects, is made by the Administrative Agent in connection with such communications or the Platform. In no event shall the Administrative Agent have any liability to the Credit Parties, any Lender or any other person for damages of any kind, including direct or indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, losses or expenses (whether in tort, contract or otherwise) arising out of any Credit Party’s or the Administrative Agent’s transmission of communications through the Internet, except to the extent the liability of such person is found in a final non-appealable judgment by a court of competent jurisdiction to have resulted from such person’s gross negligence or willful misconduct.

11.3. Each Credit Party hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to distribute (i) to Private Siders all communications to be made to any Lender pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document, including any

 

- 41 -


such communication that Borrowers identify in writing is to be distributed to Private Siders only (Private Side Communications), and (ii) to Public Siders all communications to be made to any Lender pursuant to Section 6.2(c) (solely to the extent delivered to Horizon Pharma’s securityholders generally and on a non-confidential basis), Section 6.2(d) and Section 6.2(i) (solely to the extent the substance of such communications is publicly disclosed) or as otherwise designated in writing by the Borrowers as communications that do not contain MNPI (Public Side Communications). To the extent that the event giving rise to a communication pursuant to Section 6.2(i) is a reportable event on Form 8-K under the rules and regulations of the Exchange Act, Horizon Pharma shall publicly disclose such event within four Business Days. Borrowers represent and warrant that no Public Side Communication contains any MNPI. Borrowers agree to use all commercially reasonable efforts to not designate any communications provided under Section 6.2(a)(i), (a)(iii) and (a)(iv) as Private Side Communications except to the extent that the Borrowers believe in good faith that such communications contain MNPI. Private Siders shall mean Lenders’ employees and representatives who have declared that they are authorized to receive MNPI and have expressly agreed to maintain such information in confidence. Public Siders shall mean Lenders’ employees and representatives who have not declared that they are authorized to receive MNPI; it being understood that Public Siders may be engaged in investment and other market-related activities with respect to any Borrower’s or its affiliates’ securities or loans. MNPI shall mean material non-public information (within the meaning of United States federal securities laws) with respect to any Borrower, its affiliates and any of their respective securities, business or operations.

Each Lender acknowledges that United States federal and state securities laws prohibit any person from purchasing or selling securities on the basis of material, non-public information concerning the issuer of such securities or, subject to certain limited exceptions, from communicating such information to any other person. Each Lender confirms that it has developed procedures designed to ensure compliance with these securities laws.

Each Lender acknowledges that circumstances may arise that require it to refer to communications that may contain MNPI. Accordingly, each Lender agrees that, upon the occurrence of any such circumstances, it will use commercially reasonable efforts to designate at least one individual to receive Private Side Communications on its behalf in compliance with its procedures and applicable law and identify such designee (including such designee’s contact information). Each Lender agrees to notify the Administrative Agent in writing from time to time of such Lender’s designee’s e-mail address to which notice of the availability of Private Side Communications may be sent by electronic transmission.

Each Lender that elects not to be given access to Private Side Communications does so voluntarily and, by such election, (i) acknowledges and agrees that the Administrative Agent and other Lenders may have access to Private Side Communications that such electing Lender does not have and (ii) takes sole responsibility for the consequences of, and waives any and all claims based on or arising out of, not having access to Private Side Communications.

 

  12. CHOICE OF LAW, VENUE, AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER

New York law governs the Loan Documents without regard to principles of conflicts of law. Credit Parties, the Administrative Agent and Lenders each submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York sitting in New York County, and of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York, and any appellate court from any thereof, and agrees that all claims in respect of any such action, litigation or proceeding may be heard and determined in such New York State court or, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, in such Federal court; provided, however, that nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to operate to preclude the Administrative Agent from bringing suit or taking other legal action in any other jurisdiction to realize on the Collateral or any other security for the Obligations, or to enforce a judgment or other court order in favor of the Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit if the Lenders. Each Credit Party expressly submits and consents in advance to such jurisdiction in any action or suit commenced in any such court, and each Credit Party hereby waives any objection that it may have based upon lack of personal jurisdiction, improper venue, or forum non conveniens and hereby consents to the granting of such legal or equitable relief as is deemed appropriate by such court. Each Credit Party hereby waives personal service of the summons, complaints, and other process issued in such action or suit and agrees that service of such summons, complaints, and other process may be made by registered or certified mail addressed to such Credit Party at the address set forth in Section 11 of this Agreement

 

- 42 -


and that service so made shall be deemed completed upon the earlier to occur of such Credit Party’s actual receipt thereof or three (3) days after deposit in the U.S. mails, proper postage prepaid.

TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CREDIT PARTIES, THE ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT, AND THE LENDERS EACH WAIVE THEIR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR BASED UPON THIS AGREEMENT, THE LOAN DOCUMENTS OR ANY CONTEMPLATED TRANSACTION, INCLUDING CONTRACT, TORT, BREACH OF DUTY AND ALL OTHER CLAIMS. THIS WAIVER IS A MATERIAL INDUCEMENT FOR ALL PARTIES TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. EACH PARTY HAS REVIEWED THIS WAIVER WITH ITS COUNSEL.

 

  13. GENERAL PROVISIONS

13.1. Successors and Assigns. This Agreement binds and is for the benefit of the successors and permitted assigns of each party. No Credit Party may transfer, pledge or assign this Agreement or any other Loan Document or any rights or obligations under hereunder or thereunder without the Administrative Agent’s and each Lender’s prior written consent. The Lenders have the right, without the consent of the Borrowers, to sell, transfer, assign, pledge, negotiate, or grant participation in (any such sale, transfer, assignment, negotiation, or grant of a participation, a “Lender Transfer”) all or any part of, or any interest in, the Lenders’ obligations, rights, and benefits under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to any Eligible Assignee. Borrowers and the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with the interests so assigned until the Administrative Agent shall have received and accepted an effective Assignment Agreement executed, delivered and fully completed by the applicable parties thereto, and shall have received such other information regarding such Eligible Assignee as the Administrative Agent reasonably shall require.

13.2. Indemnification; Costs and Expenses.

(a) Borrowers agree to indemnify and hold harmless Administrative Agent and each Lender and each respective manager, partner, director, officer, employee, agent, attorney and affiliate thereof (each such person, an “Indemnified Person”) from and against any and all Indemnified Liabilities; provided, (i) no Credit Party shall have any obligation to any Indemnified Person hereunder with respect to any Indemnified Liabilities to the extent such Indemnified Liabilities arise from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of that Indemnified Person, in each case, as determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction, and (ii) no Credit Party shall be liable for any settlement of any claim or proceeding effected by any Indemnified Person without the prior written consent of such Credit Party (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed), but if settled with such consent or if there shall be a final judgment against an Indemnified Person, each of the Credit Parties shall indemnify and hold harmless such Indemnified Person from and against any loss or liability by reason of such settlement or judgment in the manner set forth in this Agreement.

(b) To the extent permitted by applicable law, no Credit Party shall assert, and each Credit Party hereby waives, any claim against each Lender, the Administrative Agent and their respective Affiliates, directors, employees, attorneys, agents or sub-agents, on any theory of liability, for special, indirect, consequential or punitive damages (as opposed to direct or actual damages) (whether or not the claim therefor is based on contract, tort or duty imposed by any applicable legal requirement) arising out of, in connection with, arising out of, as a result of, or in any way related to, this Agreement or any Loan Document or any agreement or instrument contemplated hereby or thereby or referred to herein or therein, the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby, any Term Loan or the use of the proceeds thereof or any act or omission or event occurring in connection therewith, and each Credit Party hereby waives, releases and agrees not to sue upon any such claim or any such damages, whether or not accrued and whether or not known or suspected to exist in its favor.

(c) Any action taken by any Credit Party under or with respect to any Loan Document, even if required under any Loan Document or at the request of the Administrative Agent or the Required Lenders, shall be at the expense of such Credit Party, and neither the Administrative Agent nor any other Secured Party shall be required under any Loan Document to reimburse any Credit Party or any Subsidiary of any Credit Party therefor except as expressly provided therein. In addition, the Borrowers agree to pay or reimburse upon demand (i) the

 

- 43 -


Administrative Agent and each Lender for all reasonable out-of-pocket costs and expenses incurred by it or any of its directors, employees, attorneys, agents or sub-agents, in connection with the investigation, development, preparation, negotiation, syndication, execution, interpretation or administration of, any modification of any term of or termination of, any Loan Document, any commitment or proposal letter therefor, any other document prepared in connection therewith or the consummation and administration of any transaction contemplated therein, in each case including Agent Expenses to the Administrative Agent, (ii) the Administrative Agent for all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by it or any of its directors, employees, attorneys, agents or sub-agents in connection with internal audit reviews and Collateral, (iii) the Administrative Agent and its directors, employees, attorneys, agents and sub-agents, for all costs and expenses incurred in connection with (A) any refinancing or restructuring of the credit arrangements provided hereunder in the nature of a “work-out”, (B) the enforcement or preservation of any right or remedy under any Loan Document, any Obligation, with respect to the Collateral or any other related right or remedy or (C) the commencement, defense, conduct of, intervention in, or the taking of any other action with respect to, any proceeding (including any bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding) related to any Credit Party, any Subsidiary of any Credit Party, Loan Document or Obligation (or the response to and preparation for any subpoena or request for document production relating thereto), including Agent Expenses and (iv) fees and disbursements of one law firm, one financial advisor and one law firm in each relevant jurisdiction, in each case, on behalf of all Lenders (other than the Administrative Agent) incurred in connection with any of the matters referred to in clause (iii) above, and, in the case of an alleged conflict of interest, one additional law firm, one additional financial advisor and one additional law firm in each relevant jurisdiction to all affected Lenders taken as a whole.

13.3. Severability of Provisions. In case any provision in or obligation hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions or obligations, or of such provision or obligation in any other jurisdiction, shall not in any way be affected or impaired thereby.

13.4. Correction of Loan Documents. The Administrative Agent may correct patent errors and fill in any blanks in the Loan Documents consistent with the agreement of the parties so long as the Administrative Agent provides Credit Parties with written notice of such correction and allows Credit Parties at least ten (10) days to object to such correction. In the event of such objection, such correction shall not be made except by an amendment signed by the Administrative Agent, Required Lenders and Credit Parties.

13.5. Amendments in Writing; Integration. (a) No amendment, modification, termination or waiver of any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, no approval or consent thereunder, or any consent to any departure by the Borrowers therefrom, shall in any event be effective unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Borrowers, Administrative Agent and the Required Lenders provided that

(i) no such amendment, waiver or other modification that would have the effect of increasing or reducing a Lender’s Term Loan Commitment or Commitment Percentage shall be effective as to such Lender without such Lender’s written consent;

(ii) no such amendment, waiver or modification that would affect the rights and duties of Administrative Agent shall be effective without Administrative Agent’s written consent or signature;

(iii) no such amendment, waiver or other modification shall, unless signed by all the Lenders directly affected thereby, (A) reduce the principal of, rate of interest on or any fees with respect to any Term Loan or forgive any principal, interest (other than default interest) or fees (other than late charges) with respect to any Term Loan (B) postpone the date fixed for, or waive, any payment of principal of any Term Loan or of interest on any Term Loan (other than default interest) or any fees provided for hereunder (other than late charges or for any termination of any commitment); (C) change the definition of the term “Majority Lenders”, “Required Lenders” or the percentage of Lenders which shall be required for Lenders to take any action hereunder; (D) release all or substantially all or any material portion of the Collateral, authorize any Borrower to sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all or any material portion of the Collateral or release any guarantor of all or any portion of the Obligations or its guaranty obligations with respect thereto, except, in each case with respect to this clause (D), as otherwise may be expressly permitted under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents (including in connection with any disposition permitted hereunder); (E) amend, waive or otherwise modify this Section 13.5 or the definitions

 

- 44 -


of the terms used in this Section 13.5 insofar as the definitions affect the substance of this Section 13.5; (F) consent to the assignment, delegation or other transfer by Borrowers of any of their rights and obligations under any Loan Document or release Borrowers of their payment obligations under any Loan Document, except, in each case with respect to this clause (F), pursuant to a merger or consolidation permitted pursuant to this Agreement; (G) amend any of the provisions of Section 2.2(e), Section 9.4 or amend any of the definitions Pro Rata Share, Term Loan Commitment, Commitment Percentage or any other definitions or provisions that provide for the Lenders to receive their Pro Rata Shares of any fees, payments, setoffs or proceeds of Collateral under any Loan Document to the extent any such amendment would modify the Pro Rata Share treatment of any fees, payments, setoffs or proceeds of Collateral under any Loan Document as in effect on the Effective Date; (H) subordinate the Liens granted in favor of Administrative Agent securing the Obligations; or (I) amend any of the provisions of Section 13.10. It is hereby understood and agreed that all Lenders shall be deemed directly affected by an amendment, waiver or other modification of the type described in the preceding clauses (C), (D), (E), (F), (G) and (H) of the preceding sentence;

(iv) the provisions of the foregoing clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) are subject to the provisions of any interlender or agency agreement among the Lenders and Administrative Agent pursuant to which any Lender may agree to give its consent in connection with any amendment, waiver or modification of the Loan Documents only in the event of the unanimous agreement of all Lenders.

(b) Other than as expressly provided for in Section 13.5(a)(i)-(iii), Administrative Agent may, if requested by the Required Lenders, from time to time designate covenants in this Agreement less restrictive by notification to a representative of Borrower.

(c) This Agreement and the Loan Documents represent the entire agreement about this subject matter and supersede prior negotiations or agreements. All prior agreements, understandings, representations, warranties, and negotiations between the parties about the subject matter of this Agreement and the Loan Documents merge into this Agreement and the Loan Documents.

13.6. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by different parties on separate counterparts, each of which, when executed and delivered, is an original, and all taken together, constitute one Agreement.

13.7. Survival. All covenants, representations and warranties made in this Agreement continue in full force until this Agreement has terminated pursuant to its terms and all Obligations (other than inchoate indemnity obligations and any other obligations which, by their terms, are to survive the termination of this Agreement) have been paid in full and satisfied. The obligation of Credit Parties in Section 13.2 to indemnify the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall survive until the statute of limitations with respect to such claim or cause of action shall have run.

13.8. Confidentiality. In handling any non-public information regarding Credit Parties and their Subsidiaries and their businesses which would reasonably be expected to be confidential, the Administrative Agent and each Lender shall exercise the same degree of care that it exercises for its own proprietary information, but disclosure of information may be made: (a) to any Lender’s Subsidiaries or Affiliates; (b) to prospective transferees or purchasers of any interest in the Credit Extensions (provided, however, each Lender shall use its best efforts to obtain any of its prospective transferee’s or purchaser’s agreement to the terms of this provision); (c) as required by law, regulation, subpoena, or other order; (d) to any Lender’s regulators or as otherwise required in connection with such Lender’s examination or audit; (e) as the Administrative Agent considers appropriate in exercising remedies under the Loan Documents; and (f) to third-party service providers of the Administrative Agent or any Lender so long as such service providers have executed a confidentiality agreement with the Administrative Agent or Lender, as applicable, with terms no less restrictive than those contained herein. Confidential information does not include information that is either: (i) in the public domain or in the Administrative Agent’s or in any Lender’s possession when disclosed to the Administrative Agent or to any Lender, or becomes part of the public domain after disclosure to the Administrative Agent or any Lender other than as a result of a breach by the Administrative Agent or a Lender of the obligations under this Section 13.8; or (ii) disclosed to the Administrative Agent or any Lender by a third party if the Administrative Agent or such Lender does not know that the third party is prohibited from disclosing the information.

 

- 45 -


Lenders may use confidential information for the development of databases, reporting purposes, and market analysis so long as such confidential information is aggregated and anonymized prior to distribution unless otherwise expressly permitted by Credit Parties. The provisions of the immediately preceding sentence shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

13.9. Attorneys’ Fees, Costs and Expenses. In any action or proceeding between any Credit Party and Administrative Agent and/or any Lender arising out of or relating to the Loan Documents, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and other costs and expenses incurred, in addition to any other relief to which it may be entitled.

13.10. Right of Set-Off. In addition to any rights now or hereafter granted under applicable law and not by way of limitation of any such rights, upon the occurrence of an Event of Default and at any time thereafter during the continuance of any Event of Default, each Lender and, to the extent monies are held by the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent is hereby authorized by each Credit Party at any time or from time to time subject (with respect to each Lender) to the consent of the Administrative Agent (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed), without notice to any Credit Party or to any other Person (other than the Administrative Agent), any such notice being hereby expressly waived, to set off and to appropriate and to apply any and all deposits (general or special, including Indebtedness evidenced by certificates of deposit, whether matured or unmatured, but not including trust accounts) and any other Indebtedness at any time held or owing by such Lender to or for the credit or the account of any Credit Party against and on account of the obligations and liabilities of any Credit Party to such Lender hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, including all claims of any nature or description arising out of or connected hereto or with any other Loan Document, irrespective of whether or not (a) such Lender shall have made any demand hereunder or (b) the principal of or the interest on the Term Loans or any other amounts due hereunder shall have become due and payable pursuant to Section 2 and although such obligations and liabilities, or any of them, may be contingent or unmatured.

13.11. Marshalling; Payments Set Aside. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender shall be under any obligation to marshal any assets in favor of any Credit Party or any other Person or against or in payment of any or all of the Obligations. To the extent that any Credit Party makes a payment or payments to the Administrative Agent or Lenders (or to the Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties), or the Administrative Agent or Lenders enforce any Liens or exercise their rights of setoff, and such payment or payments or the proceeds of such enforcement or setoff or any part thereof are subsequently invalidated, declared to be fraudulent or preferential, set aside and/or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or any other party under any bankruptcy law, any other state or federal law, common law or any equitable cause, then, to the extent of such recovery, the obligation or part thereof originally intended to be satisfied, and all Liens, rights and remedies therefor or related thereto, shall be revived and continued in full force and effect as if such payment or payments had not been made or such enforcement or setoff had not occurred.

13.12. Obligations Several; Independent Nature of Lenders’ Rights. The obligations of Lenders hereunder are several and no Lender shall be responsible for the obligations or Term Commitment of any other Lender hereunder. Nothing contained herein or in any other Loan Document, and no action taken by Lenders pursuant hereto or thereto, shall be deemed to constitute Lenders as a partnership, an association, a joint venture or any other kind of entity. The amounts payable at any time hereunder to each Lender shall be a separate and independent debt, and each Lender shall be entitled to protect and enforce its rights arising out hereof and it shall not be necessary for any other Lender to be joined as an additional party in any proceeding for such purpose.

13.13. Electronic Execution of Documents. The words “execution,” “signed,” “signature” and words of like import in any Loan Document shall be deemed to include electronic signatures or the keeping of records in electronic form, each of which shall be of the same legal effect, validity and enforceability as a manually executed signature or the use of a paper-based recordkeeping systems, as the case may be, to the extent and as provided for in any applicable law, including, without limitation, any state law based on the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act.

13.14. Captions. Section headings herein are included herein for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part hereof for any other purpose or be given any substantive effect.

 

- 46 -


13.15. Construction of Agreement. The parties mutually acknowledge that they and their attorneys have participated in the preparation and negotiation of this Agreement. In cases of uncertainty this Agreement shall be construed without regard to which of the parties caused the uncertainty to exist.

13.16. Third Parties. Nothing in this Agreement, whether express or implied, is intended to: (a) confer any benefits, rights or remedies under or by reason of this Agreement on any persons other than the express parties to it and their respective permitted successors and assigns; (b) relieve or discharge the obligation or liability of any person not an express party to this Agreement; or (c) give any person not an express party to this Agreement any right of subrogation or action against any party to this Agreement.

13.17. No Fiduciary Duty. The Administrative Agent, each Lender and their respective Affiliates (collectively, solely for purposes of this paragraph, the “Lenders”), may have economic interests that conflict with those of the Credit Parties. Each Credit Party agrees that nothing in the Loan Documents or otherwise will be deemed to create an advisory, fiduciary or agency relationship or fiduciary or other implied duty between the Lenders, on the one hand, and such Credit Party, its Subsidiaries, and any of their respective stockholders or affiliates, on the other hand. Each Credit Party acknowledges and agrees that (i) the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents are arm’s-length commercial transactions between the Lenders, on the one hand, and such Credit Party, its Subsidiaries and their respective affiliates, on the other, (ii) in connection therewith and with the process leading to such transaction each of the Lenders is acting solely as a principal and not the agent or fiduciary of such Credit Party, its Subsidiaries or their respective affiliates, management, stockholders, creditors or any other person, (iii) no Lender has assumed an advisory or fiduciary responsibility in favor of any Credit Party, its Subsidiaries or their respective affiliates with respect to the transactions contemplated hereby or the process leading thereto (irrespective of whether any Lender or any of its affiliates has advised or is currently advising such Credit Party, its Subsidiaries or their respective affiliates on other matters) or any other obligation to such Credit Party, its Subsidiaries or their respective affiliates except the obligations expressly set forth in the Loan Documents and (iv) each Credit Party, its Subsidiaries and their respective affiliates have consulted their own legal and financial advisors to the extent each deemed appropriate. Each Credit Party further acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for making its own independent judgment with respect to such transactions and the process leading thereto. Each Credit Party agrees that it will not claim that any Lender has rendered advisory services of any nature or respect, or owes a fiduciary or similar duty to such Credit Party, its Subsidiaries or their respective affiliates in connection with such transaction or the process leading thereto.
