2.1.2Right to Increase Commitments.

At any time prior to the Twelfth Amendment Effective Date, so long as there is not continuing any Event of Default or Potential Default, then if the Borrowers wish to increase the Revolving Credit Commitments, TGI, as agent for the Borrowers, shall notify the Administrative Agent thereof and each Bank (other than any Non-Extending Bank) may, but shall not be obligated to, provide such requested increase; provided that any such increase shall be a one-time increase and shall be in a minimum of $10,000,000 and a maximum of $200,000,000.  Any portion of such requested increase shall be available to any additional bank (for purposes of this section, an “Additional Bank”) proposed by TGI, which is approved by the Administrative Agent (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld) and which becomes a party to this Agreement pursuant to Section 11.11.  In the event of any such increase in the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments effected pursuant to the terms of this subsection 2.1.2, new Notes shall, to the extent necessary, be executed and delivered by the Borrowers in exchange for the surrender of the existing Notes.  If Revolving Credit Loans would be outstanding immediately after giving effect to any such increase, then simultaneously with such increase (i) each Bank increasing its Revolving Credit Commitments (for purposes of this section, an “Increasing Bank”), each Additional Bank and each other Bank shall be deemed to have entered into a master Assignment and Assumption Agreement, in form and substance substantially similar to Exhibit 1.1(A), pursuant to which each such other Bank shall have assigned to each such Increasing Bank and each such Additional Bank, a portion of its Revolving Credit Loans necessary to reflect proportionately the Revolving Credit Commitments as adjusted in accordance with this Section 2.1.2, and (ii) in connection with such assignment, each such Increasing Bank and each such Additional Bank shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the account of each such other Bank, such amount as shall be necessary to reflect the assignment to it of Revolving Credit Loans, and in connection with such master assignment each such other Bank may treat the assignment of Revolving Credit Loans subject to a Euro-Rate Option as a prepayment thereof for purposes of Section 5.5.2.

TGI, as agent for the Borrowers, may request the issuance of a letter of credit (each a “Letter of Credit”) which may be denominated in either Dollars or an Optional Currency for itself or on behalf of another Loan Party or a non-Loan Party Subsidiary by delivering or having such other Loan Party deliver to the Issuing Bank (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) a completed application and agreement for letters of credit in such form as the Issuing Bank may specify from time to time by no later than 10:00 a.m., Pittsburgh time, at least five (5) Business Days, or such shorter period as may be agreed to by the Issuing Bank, in advance of the proposed date of issuance.  Promptly after receipt of any letter of credit application, the Issuing Bank shall confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has received a copy of such Letter of Credit application and if not, such Issuing Bank will provide Administrative Agent with a copy thereof.  All letters of credit which are identified on Schedule 2.8.1 hereto shall be deemed to have been issued under this Agreement.  Subject to the terms and conditions hereof and in reliance on the agreements of the other Banks set forth in this Section 2.8, the Issuing Bank will issue a Letter of Credit provided that each Letter of Credit shall (A) have a maximum maturity of twenty-four (24) months from the date of issuance, and (B) expire no later than one Business Day prior to the Expiration Date unless it is fully Cash Collateralized on or before the Expiration Date, in which event, such Letter of Credit shall expire no later than three hundred sixty-five (365) days after the Expiration Date, and provided that in no event shall (i) the Dollar Equivalent amount of Letters of Credit Outstanding exceed, at any one time, the Letter of Credit Sublimit or (ii) the Dollar Equivalent Revolving Facility Usage exceed, at any one time, the Revolving Credit Commitments.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Letter of Credit may contain customary automatic renewal provisions agreed upon by TGI and the Issuing Bank pursuant to which the expiration date of such Letter of Credit shall automatically be extended for a period of up to 12 months (but not to a date later than the date set forth in clause (B) above), subject to a right on the part of the Issuing Bank to prevent any such renewal from occurring by giving notice to the beneficiary in advance of any such renewal; provided that (I) the initial expiration date (or any subsequent expiration date) of each such Letter of Credit is not later than one (1) Business Day prior to the Expiration Date, and (II) renewal of such Letter(s) of Credit, at the Issuing Bank’s discretion, shall be available upon written request from TGI, as agent for the Borrowers, to the Issuing Bank at least thirty (30) days (or such other time period as agreed by TGI and the Issuing Bank) before the date upon which notice of nonrenewal is otherwise required.

Notwithstanding any other provision hereof, the Issuing Bank shall not be required to issue, amend, extend or increase any Letter of Credit, if any Bank is at such time a Defaulting Bank hereunder, unless the Issuing Bank has entered into satisfactory arrangements with the Borrowers or such Bank to eliminate the Issuing Bank’s risk with respect to such Bank (it being understood that the Issuing Bank would consider the Borrowers providing cash collateral to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Issuing Bank, to secure the Defaulting Bank’s Ratable Share of the Letter of Credit a satisfactory arrangement).

2.8.2Letter of Credit Fees.

The Borrowers shall pay in Dollars (i) to the Administrative Agent for the ratable account of the Banks a fee (the “Letter of Credit Fee”) at the rate per annum set forth in the Pricing Grid (based on a year of 360 days, and actual days elapsed), and (ii) to the Issuing Bank for its own account a fronting fee equal to 1/8% per annum, which fees shall be computed on the daily average Dollar Equivalent amount of Letters of Credit Outstanding for the immediately preceding fiscal quarter (or shorter period commencing with the Closing Date and or ending on the Expiration Date) and shall be payable quarterly in arrears commencing with the first Business Day of October, January, April and July following issuance of each Letter of Credit and on the Expiration Date.  The Borrowers shall also pay to the Issuing Bank in Dollars for the Issuing Bank’s sole account the Issuing Bank’s then in effect customary fees and administrative expenses payable with respect to the Letters of Credit as the Issuing Bank may generally charge or incur from time to time in connection with the issuance, maintenance, modification (if any), assignment or transfer (if any), negotiation, and administration of Letters of Credit.

2.8.3Disbursements, Reimbursement.

2.8.3.1Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Bank shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Issuing Bank a participation in such Letter of Credit and each drawing thereunder in an amount equal to such Bank’s Ratable Share of the maximum amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit and the amount of such drawing, respectively.

2.8.3.2In the event of any request for a drawing under a Letter of Credit by the beneficiary or transferee thereof, the Issuing Bank will promptly notify TGI, as agent for the Borrowers, and the Administrative Agent.  The Borrowers shall reimburse (such obligation to reimburse the Issuing Bank shall sometimes be referred to as a “Reimbursement Obligation”) the Issuing Bank in Dollars prior to 12:00 noon, Pittsburgh time on each date that an amount is paid by the Issuing Bank under any Letter of Credit (each such date, a “Drawing Date”) in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent amount so paid by the Issuing Bank.  In the event the Borrowers fail to reimburse the Issuing Bank (through the Administrative Agent) for the full Dollar Equivalent amount of any drawing under any Letter of Credit by 12:00 noon, Pittsburgh time, on the Drawing Date, the Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Bank thereof, and the Borrowers shall be deemed to have requested that Revolving Credit Loans be made by the Banks in Dollars under the Base Rate Option to be disbursed on the Drawing Date under such Letter of Credit, subject to the amount of the unutilized portion of the Revolving Credit Commitment and subject to the conditions set forth in Section 7.2 [Each Additional Loan] other than any notice requirements.  Any notice given by the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Bank pursuant to this Section 2.8.3.2 may be oral if immediately confirmed in writing; provided that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice.

2.8.3.3Each Bank shall upon any notice pursuant to Section 2.8.3.2 make available to the Administrative Agent for the benefit of the Issuing Bank an amount in Dollars in immediately available funds equal to its Ratable Share (as determined in accordance with Section 2.14, if applicable) of the Dollar Equivalent amount of the drawing,

NAI-1512846779v6


 

whereupon the participating Banks shall (subject to Section 2.8.3.4) each be deemed to have made a Revolving Credit Loan in Dollars to the Borrowers under the Base Rate Option in that amount.  If any Bank so notified fails to make available in Dollars to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank the amount of such Bank’s Ratable Share of such Dollar Equivalent amount by no later than 2:00 p.m., Pittsburgh time on the Drawing Date, then interest shall accrue on such Bank’s obligation to make such payment, from the first Business Day after the Drawing Date to the date on which such Bank makes such payment (i) at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate during the first three days following the Drawing Date and (ii) at a rate per annum equal to the rate applicable to Loans under the Base Rate Option on and after the fourth day following the Drawing Date.  The Administrative Agent and the Issuing Bank will promptly give notice of the occurrence of the Drawing Date, but failure of the Administrative Agent or the Issuing Bank to give any such notice on the Drawing Date or in sufficient time to enable any Bank to effect such payment on such date shall not relieve such Bank from its obligation under this Section 2.8.3.3.

2.8.3.4With respect to any unreimbursed drawing that is not converted into Revolving Credit Loans to the Borrowers under the Base Rate Option in whole or in part as contemplated by Section 2.8.3.2, because of the Borrowers’ failure to satisfy the conditions set forth in Section 7.2 [Each Additional Loan] other than any notice requirements or for any other reason, the Borrowers shall be deemed to have incurred from the Issuing Bank a borrowing (each a “Letter of Credit Borrowing”) in Dollars equal to the Dollar Equivalent amount of such drawing.  Such Letter of Credit Borrowing shall be due and payable on demand (together with interest) and shall bear interest at the rate per annum applicable to the Revolving Credit Loans under the Base Rate Option.  Each Bank’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.8.3.3 shall be deemed to be a payment in respect of its participation in such Letter of Credit Borrowing and shall constitute a “Participation Advance” from such Bank in satisfaction of its participation obligation under this Section 2.8.3.

2.8.4Repayment of Participation Advances.

2.8.4.1Upon (and only upon) receipt by the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank of immediately available funds from the Borrowers (i) in reimbursement of any payment made by the Issuing Bank under the Letter of Credit with respect to which any Bank has made a Participation Advance to the Issuing Bank, or (ii) in payment of interest on such a payment made by the Issuing Bank under such a Letter of Credit, the Administrative Agent on behalf of the Issuing Bank will pay to each Bank, in the same funds as those received by the Administrative Agent, the amount of such Bank’s Ratable Share of such funds, except the Administrative Agent shall retain for the account of the Issuing Bank the amount of the Ratable Share of such funds of any Bank that did not make a Participation Advance in respect of such payment by the Issuing Bank.

2.8.4.2If the Administrative Agent is required at any time to return to any Loan Party, or to a trustee, receiver, liquidator, custodian, or any official in any Insolvency Proceeding, any portion of the payments made by any Loan Party to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank pursuant to Section 2.8.4.1 in reimbursement of a payment made under the Letter of Credit or interest or fee thereon, each

NAI-1512846779v6


 

Bank shall, on demand of the Administrative Agent, forthwith return to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Issuing Bank the amount of its Ratable Share of any amounts so returned by the Administrative Agent plus interest thereon from the date such demand is made to the date such amounts are returned by such Bank to the Administrative Agent, at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate in effect from time to time.

2.8.5Documentation.

Each Loan Party agrees to be bound by the terms of the Issuing Bank’s application and agreement for letters of credit and the Issuing Bank’s written regulations and customary practices relating to letters of credit, though such interpretation may be different from such Loan Party’s own.  In the event of a conflict between such application or agreement and this Agreement, this Agreement shall govern.  It is understood and agreed that, except in the case of gross negligence or willful misconduct, the Issuing Bank shall not be liable for any error, negligence and/or mistakes, whether of omission or commission, in following any Loan Party’s instructions or those contained in the Letters of Credit or any modifications, amendments or supplements thereto.

2.8.6Determinations to Honor Drawing Requests.

In determining whether to honor any request for drawing under any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof, the Issuing Bank shall be responsible only to determine that the documents and certificates required to be delivered under such Letter of Credit have been delivered and that they comply on their face with the requirements of such Letter of Credit.

Each Bank’s obligation in accordance with this Agreement to make the Revolving Credit Loans or Participation Advances, as contemplated by Section 2.8.3, as a result of a drawing under a Letter of Credit, and the Obligations of the Borrowers to reimburse the Issuing Bank upon a draw under a Letter of Credit, shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be performed strictly in accordance with the terms of this Section 2.8 under all circumstances, including the following circumstances:

2.8.9Liability for Acts and Omissions.

As between any Loan Party and the Issuing Bank, or the Issuing Bank’s Affiliates, such Loan Party assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of, or misuse of the Letters of Credit by, the respective beneficiaries of such Letters of Credit.  In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Issuing Bank shall not be responsible for any of the following including any losses or damages to any Loan Party or other Person or property relating therefrom:  (i) the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for an issuance of any such Letter of Credit, even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged (even if the Issuing Bank or its Affiliates shall have been notified thereof); (ii) the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any such Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason; (iii) the failure of the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit, or any other party to which such Letter of Credit may be transferred, to comply fully with any conditions required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit or any other claim of any Loan Party against any beneficiary of such Letter of Credit, or any such transferee, or any dispute between or among any Loan Party and any beneficiary of any Letter of Credit or any such transferee; (iv) errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex or otherwise, whether or not they be in cipher; (v) errors in interpretation of technical terms; (vi) any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under any such Letter of Credit or of the proceeds thereof; (vii) the misapplication by the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit of the proceeds of any drawing under such Letter of Credit; or (viii) any consequences arising from causes beyond the control of the Issuing Bank or its Affiliates, as applicable, including any Governmental Acts, and none of the above shall affect or impair, or prevent the vesting of, any of the Issuing Bank’s or its Affiliates rights or powers hereunder.  Nothing in the preceding sentence shall relieve the Issuing

NAI-1512846779v6


 

Bank from liability for the Issuing Bank’s gross negligence or willful misconduct in connection with actions or omissions described in such clauses (i) through (viii) of such sentence.  In no event shall the Issuing Bank or its Affiliates be liable to any Loan Party for any indirect, consequential, incidental, punitive, exemplary or special damages or expenses (including without limitation attorneys’ fees), or for any damages resulting from any change in the value of any property relating to a Letter of Credit.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Issuing Bank and each of its Affiliates (i) may rely on any oral or other communication believed in good faith by the Issuing Bank or such Affiliate to have been authorized or given by or on behalf of the applicant for a Letter of Credit, (ii) may honor any presentation if the documents presented appear on their face substantially to comply with the terms and conditions of the relevant Letter of Credit; (iii) may honor a previously dishonored presentation under a Letter of Credit, whether such dishonor was pursuant to a court order, to settle or compromise any claim of wrongful dishonor, or otherwise, and shall be entitled to reimbursement to the same extent as if such presentation had initially been honored, together with any interest paid by the Issuing Bank or its Affiliate; (iv) may honor any drawing that is payable upon presentation of a statement advising negotiation or payment, upon receipt of such statement (even if such statement indicates that a draft or other document is being delivered separately), and shall not be liable for any failure of any such draft or other document to arrive, or to conform in any way with the relevant Letter of Credit; (v) may pay any paying or negotiating bank claiming that it rightfully honored under the laws or practices of the place where such bank is located; and (vi) may settle or adjust any claim or demand made on the Issuing Bank or its Affiliate in any way related to any order issued at the applicant’s request to an air carrier, a letter of guarantee or of indemnity issued to a carrier or any similar document (each an “Order”) and honor any drawing in connection with any Letter of Credit that is the subject to such Order, notwithstanding that any drafts or other documents presented in connection with such Letter of Credit fail to conform in any way with such Letter of Credit.

In furtherance and extension and not in limitation of the specific provisions set forth above, any action taken or omitted by the Issuing Bank or its Affiliates under or in connection with the Letters of Credit issued by it or any documents and certificates delivered thereunder, if taken or omitted in good faith, shall not put the Issuing Bank or its Affiliates under any resulting liability to the Borrowers or any Bank.

NAI-1512846779v6


 

of the proceeds thereof, (x) the aggregate Dollar Equivalent Revolving Facility Usage of all of the Banks would exceed the aggregate amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments of all of the Banks or (y) the aggregate amount of all outstanding Revolving Credit Loans of a Bank plus such Bank’s Ratable Share of the Dollar Equivalent Non-Loan Revolving Facility Usage would exceed its Revolving Credit Commitment.  Within the foregoing limits, the Borrowers may, prior to the Expiration Date borrow, repay and reborrow under each of the Dollar Swing Loan Commitment and the Optional Currency Swing Loan Commitment, as applicable, subject to and in accordance with the terms and limitations hereof.  The interest rate for a Dollar Swing Loan shall be the rate that is mutually agreed by TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, and PNC Bank at the time such Swing Loan is made or, absent such an agreement, at the Base Rate.  The interest rate for an Optional Currency Swing Loan shall be the Euro-Rate.  Interest on the principal amount of each Optional Currency Swing Loan made in an Optional Currency shall be paid by the Borrowers in such Optional Currency, provided that, interest earned after an Optional Currency Swing Loan is converted to its Dollar Equivalent pursuant to Section 2.9.5 shall be payable in Dollars.

2.9.2Swing Loan Request.

TGI, as agent for the Borrowers, may request a Swing Loan to be made on any Business Day.  Each request for a Swing Loan shall be in the form of a  Swing Loan Request (or a request by telephone immediately confirmed in writing, it being understood that PNC Bank may rely on the authority of any individual making such telephonic request without the necessity of receipt of such written confirmation) and received by the Administrative Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. (Pittsburgh time) on the Business Day a Dollar Swing Loan is to be made and four (4) Business Days prior to the proposed Borrowing Date with respect to making Optional Currency Swing Loans specifying (i)  the amount to be borrowed, (ii) the requested Borrowing Date, (iii) the date such Swing Loan is to be repaid, if applicable, which date shall be, with respect to Optional Currency Swing Loans, one Month from the Borrowing Date (the “Swing Loan Repayment Date”) and (iv) the currency in which such Optional Currency Swing Loans shall be funded.  The request for such Swing Loan shall be irrevocable.  Provided that all applicable conditions precedent contained herein have been satisfied, PNC Bank shall, not later than 4:00 p.m., Pittsburgh time, on the date specified in TGI’s request for such Swing Loan, make such Swing Loan by crediting any Borrower’s deposit account with PNC Bank.

2.9.3Swing Loan Notes.

The obligation of the Borrowers to repay the Dollar Swing Loans and the Optional Currency Swing Loans may, at the option of PNC Bank, be evidenced by separate promissory notes of the Borrowers, payable to PNC Bank or its registered assigns in the principal amount of the Dollar Swing Loan Commitment and the Optional Currency Swing Loan Commitment, as applicable and substantially in the form of Exhibit 1.1(S)(1) Dollar Swing Loan Note (the “Dollar Swing Loan Note”) or Exhibit 1.1(S)(2) Optional Currency Swing Loan Note (the “Optional Currency Swing Loan Note”), as applicable (in each case, as amended, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, each a “Swing Loan Note” and collectively, the “Swing Loan Notes”).

NAI-1512846779v6


 

2.9.4Repayment.

Swing Loans shall be repaid on the earlier of (i) the Expiration Date or (ii) the Swing Loan Repayment Date for such Swing Loan, provided that with respect to an Optional Currency Swing Loan, the Borrowers may renew the Interest Period thereon by delivering a Swing Loan Request therefor in accordance with the terms of Section 2.9.2.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, any Swing Loan at any time shall be repaid upon demand by the Administrative Agent (any such date being the “Swing Loan Conversion Date”) and each Borrower shall indemnify PNC Bank and each other Bank pursuant to Section 5.5.2 on account of such repayment.  Unless TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, shall have notified the Administrative Agent prior to 11:00 a.m., Pittsburgh time, on such Swing Loan Conversion Date that the Borrowers intend to repay such Swing Loan with funds other than the proceeds of a Revolving Credit Loan, or, in the case of an Optional Currency Swing Loan, renew the Interest Period with respect thereto, the Borrowers shall be deemed to have given notice to the Administrative Agent requesting the Banks to make Revolving Credit Loans in U.S. Dollars in an amount determined by PNC Bank in its sole discretion equal to the Dollar Equivalent at the prevailing market rate of such Swing Loans, which Revolving Credit Loans shall earn interest at the Base Rate in effect on the Swing Loan Conversion Date in an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such Swing Loan plus interest thereon, and the Banks shall, on the Swing Loan Conversion Date, make Revolving Credit Loans (without the requirement that they comply with the conditions for Revolving Credit Loans in Section 2.4 [Revolving Credit Loan Requests]), which shall earn interest at the Base Rate, in an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such Swing Loan plus interest thereon, the proceeds of which shall be applied directly by the Administrative Agent to repay PNC Bank for such Swing Loan then due plus accrued interest thereon; and provided, further, that if for any reason the proceeds of such Revolving Credit Loans are not received by PNC Bank on the Swing Loan Conversion Date in an aggregate amount equal to the amount of such Swing Loan then due plus accrued interest, the Borrowers shall reimburse PNC Bank on the day immediately following the Swing Loan Conversion Date, in same day funds, in an amount equal to the excess of the amount of such Swing Loan then due over the aggregate amount of such Revolving Credit Loans, if any, received plus accrued interest thereon.

2.9.5Participations.

In the event that the Borrowers shall fail to repay PNC Bank as provided in Section 2.9.4, PNC Bank shall convert such Swing Loan, if an Optional Currency Swing Loan, to a Swing Loan in Dollars at the Dollar Equivalent and the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Bank of the unpaid Dollar Equivalent amount of such Swing Loan and of such Bank’s respective participation therein in a Dollar Equivalent amount equal to such Bank’s Ratable Share of such Swing Loan, as calculated at the date PNC Bank converts the Optional Currency in which Optional Currency Swing Loans are denominated to Dollars, if applicable.  Each Bank shall make available to the Administrative Agent for payment to PNC Bank a Dollar Equivalent amount equal to its respective participation therein (including without limitation its Ratable Share of accrued but unpaid interest thereon, provided that the interest rate payable by the participating Banks shall not include the default rate component), in Dollars and in same day funds at the office of the Administrative Agent specified in such notice.  If such notice is delivered by the Administrative Agent by 11:00 a.m., Pittsburgh time, each Bank shall make

NAI-1512846779v6


 

funds available to the Administrative Agent on that Business Day.  If such notice is delivered after 11:00 a.m., Pittsburgh time, each Bank shall make funds available to the Administrative Agent on the next Business Day.  In the event that any Bank fails to make available to the Administrative Agent the Dollar Equivalent amount of such Bank’s participation in such unpaid amount as provided herein, PNC Bank shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Bank together with interest thereon at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate for each day during the period between the date such participation amount is required to be paid and the date on which such Bank makes available its participation in such unpaid amount. The failure of any Bank to make available to the Administrative Agent its Ratable Share of any such unpaid amount shall not relieve any other Bank of its obligations hereunder to make available to the Administrative Agent its Ratable Share of such unpaid amount when due as set forth above.  The Administrative Agent shall distribute to each Bank which has paid all amounts payable by it under this Section 2.9.5 with respect to the unpaid amount of any Swing Loan, such Bank’s Ratable Share (based on its participation in such Swing Loan and interest thereon) of all payments received by the Administrative Agent from any of the Borrowers in repayment of such Swing Loan when such payments are received.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, each Bank which has paid all amounts payable by it under this Section 2.9.5 shall have a direct right to repayment of such amounts from the Borrowers subject to the procedures for repaying Banks set forth in this Section 2.9.5 and the provisions of Section 5.

2.9.6Termination.

In the event the Revolving Credit Commitments are terminated in accordance with the terms hereof, each of the Dollar Swing Loan Commitment and the Optional Currency Swing Loan Commitment shall also be terminated automatically.  In the event the Borrowers reduce the Revolving Credit Commitments to less than either the Dollar Swing Loan Commitment or the Optional Currency Swing Loan Commitment, such Swing Loan Commitment shall immediately be reduced to an amount equal to the Revolving Credit Commitments.  In the event the Borrowers reduce the Revolving Credit Commitments to less than the outstanding principal amount of the Dollar Swing Loans or the Optional Currency Swing Loans, the Borrowers shall immediately repay the amount by which such outstanding Swing Loans exceeds the Dollar Swing Loan Commitment or the Optional Currency Swing Loan Commitment, as applicable, as so reduced plus accrued interest thereon.

2.9.7Minimum Amounts.

At no time shall there be more than (i) one (1) outstanding Dollar Swing Loan, except as to Swing Loans made pursuant to Section 2.9.9 and (ii) three (3) outstanding Optional Currency Swing Loans.  Each Dollar Swing Loan shall be in a minimum original principal amount of $100,000 and integral multiples thereof, except as to Swing Loans made pursuant to Section 2.9.9, as to which there shall be no minimum.  Each Optional Currency Swing Loan shall be in a minimum original principal amount of $1,000,000 and integral multiples thereof.

2.9.8Prepayment.

The Borrowers shall have the right at any time and from time to time to prepay the Swing Loans, in whole or in part, without premium or penalty (but in any event subject to

NAI-1512846779v6


 

Section 5.5.2), upon prior written, facsimile or telephonic notice to PNC Bank given by TGI on the Borrowers’ behalf no later than 11:00 a.m., Pittsburgh time, on the date of any proposed prepayment.  Each notice of prepayment shall specify the Swing Loan to be prepaid and the amount to be prepaid, shall be irrevocable and shall commit the Borrowers to prepay such amount on such date, with accrued interest thereon and any other amounts owed hereunder.

PNC Bank shall be under no obligation to make the Optional Currency Swing Loans and no Issuing Bank shall be under any obligation to issue Letters of Credit requested by the Borrowers which are denominated in an Optional Currency if, PNC Bank or such Issuing Bank, as the case may be, notifies the Administrative Agent by 5:00 p.m. (Pittsburgh time) four (4) Business Days prior to the Borrowing Date for such Optional Currency Swing Loans or date of issuance that (i) the making, maintenance or funding of such Optional Currency Swing Loan, the issuance of such Letter of Credit, or the funding of any draw thereunder has been made or, in the case of a draw, would be made, impracticable or unlawful by compliance by PNC Bank or such Issuing Bank in good-faith with any Law or any interpretation or application thereof by any Official Body or with any request or directive of any such Official Body (whether or not having the force of Law) or (ii) after making all reasonable efforts, deposits of the relevant amount in the relevant Optional Currency for the relevant Interest Period are not available to PNC Bank with respect to such Optional Currency Swing Loan in the London interbank market.  In the event the Administrative Agent receives a timely notice from PNC Bank or an Issuing Bank pursuant to the preceding sentence, the Administrative Agent will notify TGI, as agent for the Borrowers, (1) no later than 12:00 noon (Pittsburgh time) three (3) Business Days prior to the Borrowing Date for such Optional Currency Swing Loans that the Optional Currency is not then available for such Optional Currency Swing Loans, or (2) prior to the issuance of an Optional Currency Letter of Credit, that Letters of Credit are not then available in such Optional Currency.  If TGI receives a notice described in the preceding sentence, the Borrowers may, by notice from TGI to the Administrative Agent not later than 5:00 p.m. (Pittsburgh time) three (3) Business Days prior to the Borrowing Date for such Optional Currency Swing Loans, or issuance of such

TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, may deliver to the Administrative Agent a written request that Optional Currency Swing Loans hereunder and/or Letters of Credit issued hereunder also be permitted to be made or issued in any other lawful currency (other than Dollars), in addition to the currencies specified in the definition of “Optional Currency” herein, provided that such currency must be freely traded in the offshore interbank foreign exchange markets, freely transferable, freely convertible into Dollars and available to PNC Bank and the Issuing Banks  in the applicable interbank market.  The Administrative Agent will promptly notify TGI of the acceptance or rejection by the Administrative Agent, of the Borrowers’ request.  The requested currency shall be approved as an Optional Currency hereunder only if the Administrative Agent, PNC Bank and all of the Issuing Banks approve of the Borrowers’ request.

2.11Currency Repayments.

Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the entire amount of principal of and interest on any Optional Currency Swing Loan shall be repaid in the same Optional Currency in which such Loan was made, provided, however, that if it is impossible or illegal for the Borrowers to effect payment of a Loan in the Optional Currency in which such Loan was made, or if the Borrowers default in their obligations to do so, PNC Bank may, at its option

NAI-1512846779v6


 

permit such payment to be made (i) at and to a different location, subsidiary, affiliate or correspondent of the Administrative Agent, or (ii) in the Dollar Equivalent, or (iii) in an Equivalent Amount of such other currency (freely convertible into Dollars) as PNC Bank may solely at its option designate.  Upon any events described in (i) through (iii) of the preceding sentence, the Borrowers shall make such payment.  In all events, whether described in such clauses (i) through (iii), whether the Borrowers make such required payments, or otherwise, (a) the Borrowers, jointly and severally, agree to hold PNC Bank, each Issuing Bank and each Bank harmless from and against any loss incurred by any of them arising from the cost to such indemnified party of any premium, any costs of exchange, the cost of hedging and covering the Optional Currency in which such Optional Currency Swing Loan or Letter of Credit, as the case may be, was originally made, and from any change in the value of Dollars, or such other currency, in relation to the Optional Currency that was due and owing, and (b) each Bank agrees to hold PNC Bank and each Issuing Bank harmless from and against any loss incurred by PNC Bank or such Issuing Bank arising from the cost to PNC Bank or such Issuing Bank of any premium, any costs of exchange, the cost of hedging and covering the Optional Currency in which such Optional Currency Swing Loan or Letter of Credit, as the case may be, was originally made, and from any change in the value of Dollars or such other currency in relation to the Optional Currency that was due and owing. Such loss shall be calculated for the period commencing with the first day of the Interest Period for such Loan or issuance of such Letter of Credit, as the case may be, and continuing through the date of payment thereof.  Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement of the Borrowers or Banks hereunder, the Borrowers’ and Banks’ respective obligations under this Section 2.11 shall survive termination of this Agreement.

2.12Optional Currency Amounts.

Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, PNC Bank may, with respect to notices by TGI on behalf of the Borrowers for Optional Currency Swing Loans or voluntary prepayments of less than the full amount of an Optional Currency Swing Loan, engage in reasonable rounding of the Optional Currency amounts requested to be loaned or repaid; and, in such event, PNC Bank shall promptly notify TGI, the Administrative Agent and the Banks of such rounded amounts and Borrowers’ request or notice shall thereby be deemed to reflect such rounded amounts.

2.13Intentionally Omitted.

2.14Defaulting Banks.

Notwithstanding anything contained in Sections 2.8, 2.9 or any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Bank becomes a Defaulting Bank then: all Letters of Credit Outstanding and Swing Loans outstanding at such time, and all Letters of Credit issued or Swing Loans made while there exists a Defaulting Bank shall be reallocated among the non-Defaulting Banks in accordance with their respective Ratable Shares (such Ratable Shares shall be determined without reference to each Defaulting Bank’s Ratable Share) so long as no Potential Default or Event of Default exists on the date of reallocation and thereafter continues uncured, but only to the extent (a) the sum of all non-Defaulting Banks’ Revolving Credit Loans then outstanding plus the sum of such non-Defaulting Banks’ Ratable Share of the Dollar Equivalent

NAI-1512846779v6


 

Non-Loan Revolving Facility Usage at such time does not exceed the total of all non-Defaulting Banks’ Revolving Credit Commitments and (b) the aggregate obligation of each non-Defaulting Bank to acquire, refinance or fund any participations in the Defaulting Bank’s portion of Letters of Credit Outstanding and Swing Loans pursuant to reallocation contemplated above shall not exceed the positive difference between (i) the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Bank minus (ii) such Bank’s Revolving Credit Loans then outstanding plus such Bank’s Ratable Share of the Dollar Equivalent Non-Loan Revolving Facility Usage.  If the reallocation described in the preceding sentence cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrowers shall within one Business Day following notice by the Administrative Agent, (1) first, prepay outstanding Swing Loans and (2) second, Cash Collateralize such Defaulting Bank’s portion of Letters of Credit Outstanding (in each case, after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant the immediately preceding sentence).  To the extent such Letters of Credit Outstanding and Swing Loans are reallocated pursuant to this Section 2.14, then the fees payable to the Banks pursuant to Section 2.8.2 (but not Section 2.3) shall be adjusted in accordance with such non-Defaulting Banks’ Ratable Shares.  To the extent a portion of the Defaulting Bank’s Letters of Credit outstanding are Cash Collateralized pursuant to clause (2) above, the Borrowers shall not be obligated to pay any fees to or for the account of such Defaulting Bank pursuant to Section 2.8.2 with respect to such Defaulting Bank’s Letters of Credit Outstanding during the period such Defaulting Bank’s Letters of Credit Outstanding are Cash Collateralized.  To the extent such Letters of Credit Outstanding are not reallocated pursuant to this Section 2.14, or the Defaulting Bank’s Ratable Share of Letters of Credit Outstanding have not been Cash Collateralized, then, without prejudice to any rights or remedies of the Issuing Bank or any Bank hereunder, all Commitment Fees that otherwise would have been payable to such Defaulting Bank (solely with respect to the portion of such Defaulting Bank’s Commitment that was utilized by such Letters of Credit Outstanding) and Letter of Credit Fees with respect to such Defaulting Bank’s Ratable Share of the Letters of Credit Outstanding shall be payable to the Issuing Bank.  Subject to Section 11.23, nothing contained in this Section or elsewhere in this Agreement and no reallocation of any Defaulting Bank’s Ratable Share of any obligation hereunder shall relieve such Defaulting Bank of its obligation to fund any portion of any amount owed by such Defaulting Bank hereunder.

In the event that the Administrative Agent, the Borrower, and the Issuing Banks each agree that a Defaulting Bank has adequately remedied all matters that caused such Bank to be a Defaulting Bank, then the Letters of Credit Outstanding and the Swing Loans outstanding shall be readjusted to reflect the inclusion of such Bank’s Revolving Credit Commitment and on such date, such Bank shall purchase at par such of the Loans of the other Banks as the Administrative Agent shall determine may be necessary in order for such Bank to hold such Loans in accordance with its Ratable Share.

2.15Extension of Expiration Date.

Notwithstanding anything contained in any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, the Revolving Credit Commitments (or portions of the Revolving Credit Commitments) held by the Banks set forth on Schedule 2.15 (such Banks, the “Non-Extending Banks” and such Revolving Credit Commitments, as may be reduced from time to time pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, the “Expiring Commitments”) shall automatically terminate on the Original Expiration Date to the extent such Expiring Commitments are held by such Non-Extending Banks on the Original Expiration Date, and upon such termination, if applicable, the

NAI-1512846779v6


 

Borrowers shall, (a) pay, with accrued interest and with any additional compensation required under Section 2.3 and Section 5.5.2, the amount of any Revolving Credit Loans related to such Expiring Commitments, (b) prepay any additional Revolving Credit Loans of the Banks to the extent that the Dollar Equivalent Revolving Facility Usage exceeds the Revolving Credit Commitments (in each case after giving effect to the Expiring Commitments) and (c) make any other payments required hereunder, including without limitation, payments required under Section 2.8, Section 2.9 and Section 5.6.  After giving effect to the Expiring Commitments, if any, any then-existing Availability Reserve shall be reallocated among the Banks holding Revolving Credit Commitments after the Original Expiration Date in accordance with their respective Ratable Shares (as determined after giving effect to the Expiring Commitments and without reference to any Bank’s Expiring Commitment). After giving effect to the Expiring Commitments, if any, all Letters of Credit Outstanding and Swing Loans outstanding at such time, and all Letters of Credit issued or Swing Loans made after the Original Expiration Date shall be reallocated among the Banks holding Revolving Credit Commitments after the Original Expiration Date in accordance with their respective Ratable Shares (as determined after giving effect to the Expiring Commitments and without reference to any Bank’s Expiring Commitment), but only to the extent, in each case, after giving effect to the Expiring Commitments, (x) the sum of all Banks’ Revolving Credit Loans then outstanding plus the sum of such Banks’ Ratable Share of the Dollar Equivalent Non-Loan Revolving Facility Usage at such time does not exceed the total of all such Banks’ Revolving Credit Commitments and (y) the aggregate obligation of each Bank to acquire, refinance or fund any participations in the portion of Letters of Credit Outstanding and Swing Loans pursuant to the reallocation contemplated above shall not exceed, in each case, after giving effect to the Expiring Commitments, the positive difference between (i) the Revolving Credit Commitment of such Bank minus (ii) such Bank’s Revolving Credit Loans then outstanding plus such Bank’s Ratable Share of the Dollar Equivalent Non-Loan Revolving Facility Usage.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the reallocation described in the preceding sentence cannot, or can only partially, be effected, or if a Potential Default or Event of Default exists on the Original Expiration Date, the Borrowers shall within one Business Day following notice by the Administrative Agent, (1) first, prepay the pro rata portion of outstanding Swing Loans related to the Expiring Commitments and (2) second, Cash Collateralize a pro rata portion of Letters of Credit Outstanding related to the Expiring Commitments (in each case, after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant the immediately preceding sentence).  Notwithstanding any provision contained in this Agreement or the other Loan Documents to the contrary, each Bank party to the Eleventh Amendment hereby agrees to this Section 2.15 and the non-pro rata treatment of certain payments as set forth in this Section.

NAI-1512846779v6


 

simultaneously to the Loans comprising different Borrowing Tranches and may convert to or renew one or more Interest Rate Options with respect to all or any portion of the Loans comprising any Borrowing Tranche, provided that there shall not be at any one time outstanding more than ten (10) Borrowing Tranches in the aggregate among all of the Loans.  If at any time the designated rate applicable to any Loan made by any Bank exceeds such Bank’s highest lawful rate, the rate of interest on such Bank’s Loan shall be limited to such Bank’s highest lawful rate.  The interest rate applicable to the Swing Loans shall be governed by Section 2.9.

4.1.1Revolving Credit Interest Rate Options.

The Borrowers shall have the right to select from the following Interest Rate Options applicable to the Revolving Credit Loans:

(i)the Base Rate Option; or

(ii)the Euro-Rate Option.

4.2Rate Quotations.

TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, may call the Administrative Agent on or before the date on which a Loan Request is to be delivered to receive an indication of the interest rates and the applicable currency exchange rates then in effect, but it is acknowledged that such projection shall not be binding on the Administrative Agent or the Banks nor affect the rate of interest or the calculation of Equivalent Amounts which thereafter are actually in effect when the election is made.

4.3Interest Periods.

At any time when the Borrowers shall select, convert to or renew a Euro-Rate Option, TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, shall notify the Administrative Agent thereof by delivering a Loan Request at least four (4) Business Days prior to the effective date of such Euro-Rate Option, with respect to an Optional Currency Swing Loan, and three (3) Business Days prior to the effective date of such Euro-Rate Option, with respect to a Dollar Loan.  The notice shall specify an interest period (the “Interest Period”) during which such Euro-Rate Option shall apply, such Interest Period to be one, two, three or six Months, provided that, the sole Interest Period applicable to Optional Currency Swing Loans shall be one Month, and provided further, that:

4.3.1Ending Date and Business Day.

any Interest Period which would otherwise end on a date which is not a Business Day shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day unless such Business Day falls in the next calendar month, in which case such Interest Period shall end on the preceding Business Day;

NAI-1512846779v6


 

4.3.2Amount of Borrowing Tranche.

the amount of each Borrowing Tranche of Euro-Rate Loans (other than Optional Currency Swing Loans, which are addressed in Section 2.9.7) shall be in integral multiples of $500,000 and not less than $2,000,000;

4.3.3Termination Before Expiration Date.

each other Obligation hereunder if not paid when due shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the rate of interest applicable under the  Base Rate Option plus an additional 2.0% per annum from the time such Obligation becomes due and payable and until it is paid in full.

4.4.3Acknowledgment.

Each Borrower acknowledges that such increased rates reflect, among other things, the fact that such Loans or other amounts have become a substantially greater risk given their default status and that the Banks are entitled to additional compensation for such risk; and, all such interest shall be payable by the Borrowers upon demand by the Administrative Agent.

NAI-1512846779v6


 

4.5Euro-Rate Unascertainable.

4.5.1Unascertainable.

If on any date on which a Euro-Rate would otherwise be determined, the Administrative Agent shall have determined that:

(i)adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining such Euro-Rate, or

(ii)a contingency has occurred which materially and adversely affects the London interbank eurodollar market relating to the Euro-Rate, then the Administrative Agent shall have the rights specified in Section 4.5.3.

4.5.2Illegality; Increased Costs; Deposits Not Available.

If at any time any Bank shall have determined that:

(i)the making, maintenance or funding of any Loan to which a Euro-Rate Option applies has been made impracticable or unlawful by compliance by such Bank in good-faith with any Law or any interpretation or application thereof by any Official Body or with any request or directive of any such Official Body (whether or not having the force of Law), or

(ii)such Euro-Rate Option will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Bank of the establishment or maintenance of any such Loan, or

(iii)after making all reasonable efforts, deposits of the relevant amount in Dollars or in the Optional Currency (as applicable) for the relevant Interest Period for a Loan to which a Euro-Rate Option applies are not available to such Bank with respect to such Loan in the London interbank market, then the Administrative Agent shall have the rights specified in Section 4.5.3.

4.5.3Administrative Agent’s and Banks’ Rights.

In the case of any event specified in subsection 4.5.1 above, the Administrative Agent shall promptly so notify the Banks and TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, thereof, and in the case of an event specified in subsection 4.5.2 above, such Bank shall promptly so notify the Administrative Agent and endorse a certificate to such notice as to the specific circumstances of such notice, and the Administrative Agent shall promptly send copies of such notice and certificate to the other Banks and TGI on behalf of the Borrowers.  Upon such date as shall be specified in such notice (which shall not be earlier than the date such notice is given), the obligation of (A) the Banks, in the case of such notice given by the Administrative Agent, or (B) such Bank, in the case of such notice given by such Bank, to allow the Borrowers to select, convert to or renew a Euro-Rate Option or select an Optional Currency (as applicable) shall be suspended until the Administrative Agent shall have later notified TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, or such Bank shall have later notified the Administrative Agent, of the Administrative Agent’s or such Bank’s, as the case may be, determination that the circumstances

NAI-1512846779v6


 

giving rise to such previous determination no longer exist.  If at any time the Administrative Agent makes a determination under subsection 4.5.1 of this Section 4.5 and TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, has previously notified the Administrative Agent of their selection of, conversion to or renewal of a Euro-Rate Option and such Interest Rate Option has not yet gone into effect, such notification shall be deemed to provide for selection of, conversion to or renewal of the Base Rate Option otherwise available with respect to such Loans.  If any Bank notifies the Administrative Agent of a determination under subsection 4.5.2 of this Section 4.5, the Borrowers shall, subject to the Borrowers’ indemnification Obligations under Section 5.5.2, as to any Loan of the Bank to which a Euro-Rate Option applies, on the date specified in such notice either (i) as applicable, convert such Loan to the Base Rate Option otherwise available with respect to such Loan or select a different Optional Currency or Dollars, or (ii) prepay such Loan in accordance with Section 5.4.  Absent due notice from TGI, on behalf of the Borrowers, of conversion or prepayment, such Loan shall automatically be converted to the Base Rate Option otherwise available with respect to such Loan upon such specified date.

4.6Selection of Interest Rate Options.

If the Borrowers fail to select a new Interest Period or Optional Currency to apply to any Borrowing Tranche of Euro-Rate Loans at the expiration of an existing Interest Period applicable to such Borrowing Tranche in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.1 [Interest Periods], the Borrowers shall be deemed to have (a) with respect to Dollar Loans, converted such Borrowing Tranche to the Base Rate Option, commencing upon the last day of the existing Interest Period and (b) with respect to any such Optional Currency Swing Loan Borrowing Tranche, continued the same Optional Currency therefor, but selected a one Month Interest Period therefor, commencing upon the last day of the existing Interest Period.

NAI-1512846779v6


 

of account, ledger or other relevant record shall, in the absence of manifest error, be conclusive as the statement of the amount of principal of and interest on the Loans and other amounts owing under this Agreement (including the Equivalent Amounts of the applicable currencies where such computations are required) and shall be deemed an “account stated.”  Except where payment is required earlier, as provided herein, the Borrowers agree to repay, on the Expiration Date, all principal, interest, fees and other Obligations with respect to the Revolving Credit Loans then outstanding.  In the event that at any time the Dollar Equivalent Revolving Facility Usage exceeds the aggregate Revolving Credit Commitments, the Borrowers shall promptly repay such excess in immediately available funds.

5.2Pro Rata Treatment of Banks.

Subject to Section 2.14, each borrowing shall be allocated to each Bank according to its Ratable Share, and each selection of, conversion to or renewal of any Interest Rate Option and each payment or prepayment by the Borrowers with respect to principal, interest, Commitment Fees, Letter of Credit Fees, or other fees (except for the Administrative Agent’s Fee and the Issuing Banks’ fronting fee) or amounts due from the Borrowers hereunder to the Banks with respect to the Loans, shall (except as provided in Section 4.5.2 [Illegality; Increased Costs; Deposits not Available] in the case of an event specified in Section 4.5 [Euro-Rate Unascertainable], 5.4.2 [Replacement of a Bank] or 5.5 [Additional Compensation in Certain Circumstances]) be made in proportion to the applicable Loans outstanding from each Bank and, if no such Loans are then outstanding, in proportion to the Ratable Share of each Bank.  Subject to Section 2.14, notwithstanding any of the foregoing, each borrowing or payment, repayment or prepayment by the Borrowers of principal, interest, fees or other amounts from the Borrowers with respect to Swing Loans shall be made by or to PNC Bank according to Section 2.9.

5.3Interest Payment Dates.

Interest on Loans to which the Base Rate Option applies shall be due and payable in arrears on the first Business Day of each October, January, April and July for the prior fiscal quarter, and on the date such Loans are paid in full.  Interest on Loans to which the Euro-Rate Option applies shall be due and payable in the currency in which such Loan was made on the last day of each Interest Period for those Loans and, if such Interest Period is longer than three (3) Months, also on each day that interest would have been payable had successive Interest Periods of three Months’ duration been applicable to such Loans.  Interest on mandatory prepayments of principal under Section 5.6 shall be made in the currency in which such Loan was made and shall be due on the date such mandatory prepayment is due.  Interest on the principal amount of each Loan or other monetary Obligation shall be due and payable in the currency in which such Loan was made on demand after such principal amount or such other monetary Obligation becomes due and payable (whether on the stated maturity date, upon acceleration or otherwise).

5.4Voluntary Prepayments and Commitment Reductions.

5.4.1Right to Prepay.

The Borrowers shall have the right at their option from time to time to prepay the Loans in whole or part without premium or penalty (except as provided in subsection 5.4.2 below or in Section 5.5) in the currency in which such Loan was made:

(i)at any time with respect to any Loan to which the Base Rate Option applies,

(ii)on the last day of the applicable Interest Period with respect to Loans to which a Euro-Rate Option applies, provided however the Borrowers may otherwise prepay such Loans upon payment of all amounts owing under Section 5.5.2 resulting from such prepayment, or

(iii)on the date specified in a notice by any Bank pursuant to Section 4.5.3 [Administrative Agent’s and Banks’ Rights] with respect to any Loan to which a Euro-Rate Option applies.

(a)the date, which shall be a Business Day, on which the proposed prepayment is to be made;

(b)a statement indicating the application of the prepayment; and

(c)the total principal amount and currency of such prepayment, the Dollar Equivalent amount of which shall not be less than $200,000 for the Revolving Credit Loans.

(x)

the date, which shall be a Business Day, on which the proposed prepayment is to be made; and

(y)

a statement indicating the application of the prepayment between the Swing Loans.

The amount of the payment shall not be less than $25,000 for any Swing Loan except for Swing Loans made pursuant to Section 2.9.9, as to which there shall be no minimum.

NAI-1512846779v6


 

All prepayment notices shall be irrevocable.  The principal amount of the Loans for which a prepayment notice is given, together with interest on such principal amount, shall be due and payable on the date specified in such prepayment notice as the date on which the proposed prepayment is to be made in the currency in which such Loan was made.  Except as provided in Section 4.5.3, if the Borrowers prepay a Loan but fail to specify the applicable Borrowing Tranche which the Borrowers are prepaying, the prepayment shall be applied first to the Loans to which the Base Rate Option applies, then to Dollar Loans to which the Euro-Rate Option applies, and then to Optional Currency Swing Loans.  Any prepayment hereunder shall be subject to the Borrowers’ obligation to indemnify the Banks under Section 5.5.2.

5.4.2Replacement of a Bank.

In the event any Bank (i) gives notice under Section 4.5.2, Section 5.5.1, or Section 11.20(vii), (ii) becomes a Defaulting Bank or otherwise does not fund Revolving Credit Loans in breach of its obligations under Section 2.5 or because the making of such Loans would contravene any Law applicable to such Bank, (iii) does not approve the extension of the Expiration Date as contemplated by the Eleventh Amendment and the consent of the Required Banks is obtained hereunder (such Bank, a “Declining Bank”), (iv) does not approve any other action as to which its consent is required  (other than the consent of the Administrative Agent under Section 11.1.1) and the consent of the Required Banks is obtained hereunder, or (v) becomes subject to the control of an Official Body (other than normal and customary supervision), then the Borrowers shall have the right at their option, with the consent of the Administrative Agent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld, to prepay the Loans of such Bank in whole, together with all interest accrued thereon, and terminate such Bank’s Commitment within ninety (90) days after (w) receipt of such Bank’s notice under Section 4.5.2, 5.5.1, or 11.20(vii), (x) the date such Bank has become a Defaulting Bank or otherwise has failed to fund Revolving Credit Loans in breach of its obligations under Section 2.5 or because the making of such Loans would contravene Law applicable to such Bank, (y) the date of obtaining the consent which such Bank has not approved, or (z) the date such Bank became subject to the control of an Official Body; provided that the Borrowers shall also pay to such Bank at the time of such prepayment any amounts required under Section 5.5 and any accrued interest due on such amount and any related fees; provided, further, that the Commitment of such Bank shall be provided by one or more of the remaining Banks or a replacement bank reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent; provided, further, the remaining Banks shall have no obligation hereunder to increase their Commitments; provided further, in the case of an assignment by a Declining Bank under this Section 5.4.2, the remaining Bank(s) or the replacement bank(s) that is or are the assignees of the Declining Bank shall agree at the time of such assignment to the extension of the Expiration Date (as contemplated by the Eleventh Amendment), which agreement shall be set forth in a written instrument delivered and satisfactory to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent; provided further, in the event none of the Banks or any replacement bank acquire the Commitments of the Defaulting Bank the Borrowers may terminate such Defaulting Bank’s Commitment and reduce the aggregate Commitments of all of the Banks by the amount of such Defaulting Bank’s terminated Commitment subject to the provisions (other than the pro rata provisions) set forth in Section 5.4.3 below; provided that the Borrowers shall prepay the Loans of the Defaulting Bank and any amount required by Section 5.5 and any accrued interest due on such amount and any related fees.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Administrative Agent may only be replaced subject to the requirements of

NAI-1512846779v6


 

Section 10.14 and an Issuing Bank may only be replaced if all applicable Letters of Credit which it has issued have expired, been terminated or replaced or Cash Collateralized.

5.4.3Right to Reduce Commitments.

The Borrowers shall have the right at their option from time to time to reduce permanently the Revolving Credit Commitments upon at least one Business Day’s advance notice to the Administrative Agent.  Each such permanent reduction shall be in the minimum amount of $5,000,000 and shall reduce the Revolving Credit Commitment of each Bank in proportion to its Ratable Share.  Upon the effective date of each permanent reduction in the Revolving Credit Commitments, the Borrowers shall also prepay, with interest and with any additional compensation required under Section 5.5.2, the amount (if any) by which the Dollar Equivalent Revolving Facility Usage at the time of the reduction exceeds the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments as reduced.

5.4.4Change of Lending Office.

Each Bank agrees that upon the occurrence of any event giving rise to increased costs or other special payments under Section 4.5.2 [Illegality; Increased Costs; Deposits Not Available] with respect to such Bank, it will, if requested by TGI on behalf of the Borrowers, use reasonable efforts (subject to overall policy considerations of such Bank) to designate another lending office for any Loans or Letters of Credit affected by such event, provided that such designation is made on such terms that such Bank and its lending office suffer no economic, legal or regulatory disadvantage, with the object of avoiding the consequence of the event giving rise to the operation of such Section.  Nothing in this Section 5.4.4 shall affect or postpone any of the Obligations of the Borrowers or any other Loan Party or the rights of the Administrative Agent or any Bank provided in this Agreement.

5.5Additional Compensation in Certain Circumstances.

5.5.1Increased Costs or Reduced Return Resulting From Reserves, Capital Adequacy Requirements, Expenses, Etc.

If any change in any Law, guideline or interpretation or application thereof by any Official Body charged with the interpretation or administration thereof or compliance with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of Law) of any central bank or other Official Body, including, without limitation, all requests, rules, guidelines or directives issued under or in connection with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all requests, rules, guidelines or directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Regulations and Supervisory Practices (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, regardless of the date adopted, issued, promulgated, or implemented:

(i)imposes, modifies or deems applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against credits or commitments to extend credit extended by, or assets (funded or contingent) of, deposits with or for the account of, or other acquisitions of funds by, any Bank or any lending office of any Bank or the Issuing Bank;

NAI-1512846779v6


 

(ii)subjects any of the Administrative Agent, PNC Bank as provider of the Swing Loans, the Issuing Bank or any Bank to any Taxes (other than (A) Indemnified Taxes, (B) Taxes described in clauses (ii) through (iv) of the definition of Excluded Taxes, or (C) Connection Income Taxes) on its loans, loan principal, letters of credit, commitments, or other obligations, or its deposits, reserves, other liabilities or capital attributable thereto;

(iii)imposes on any Bank or the Issuing Bank or the London interbank market any other conditions, cost or expenses (other than Taxes) affecting this Agreement or Loans made by such Bank or any Letter of Credit or participation therein; or

(iv)imposes, modifies or deems applicable any capital adequacy, liquidity or similar requirement (A) against assets (funded or contingent) of, or letters of credit, other credits or commitments to extend credit extended by, any Bank or Issuing Bank, or (B) otherwise applicable to the obligations of any Bank or any lending office of any Bank or any Issuing Bank under this Agreement,

and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to the Administrative Agent, PNC Bank as provider of the Swing Loan, the Issuing Bank or any Bank of making, converting to, or continuing or maintaining any Loan or of maintaining its obligation to make any such Loan, or to increase the cost to any of them of participating in, issuing or maintaining any Letter of Credit (or maintaining its obligation to participate in or to issue any Letter of Credit), or to reduce the amount of sum received or receivable by, such Bank, Administrative Agent, PNC Bank or Issuing Bank, whether of principal, interest or any other amount (or, in the case of any capital adequacy, liquidity or similar requirement, to have the effect of reducing the rate of return on any Bank’s or Issuing Bank’s capital, taking into consideration such Bank’s or Issuing Bank’s customary policies with respect to capital adequacy or liquidity) by an amount which such Bank or Issuing Bank in its sole discretion deems to be material, such Bank or Issuing Bank shall from time to time notify TGI, as agent for the Borrowers, and the Administrative Agent of the amount determined in good-faith (which determination may include such reasonable assumptions, allocations of costs and expenses and averaging or attribution methods as such Bank or Issuing Bank shall determine) by such Bank or Issuing Bank to be necessary to compensate such Bank or Issuing Bank for such increase in cost, reduction of income or additional expense (to the extent not reflected in the determination of Base Rate).  Such notice shall set forth in reasonable detail the basis for such determination.  Such amount shall be due and payable by the Borrowers to such Bank or Issuing Bank ten (10) Business Days after such notice is given.  Failure or delay on the part of the Administrative Agent, PNC Bank as the provider of Swing Loans, any Bank or Issuing Bank to demand compensation pursuant to this Section 5.5 shall not constitute a waiver of the Administrative Agent’s, PNC Bank’s, such Bank’s or Issuing Bank’s right to demand such compensation; provided that the Borrowers shall not be required to compensate the Administrative Agent, PNC Bank, a Bank or the Issuing Bank pursuant to this Section 5.5 for any increased costs incurred or reductions suffered more than nine months prior to the date that the Administrative Agent, PNC Bank, such Bank or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, notifies the Borrowers of change in Law or other circumstances described above giving rise to such increased costs or reductions, and of the Administrative Agent, PNC Bank’s, such Bank’s or Issuing Bank’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the change in Law or other circumstances described above giving rise to such increase costs or reductions is

NAI-1512846779v6


 

retroactive, then the nine month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect).

5.5.2Indemnity.

In addition to the compensation required by subsection 5.5.1 of this Section 5.5, each Borrower shall indemnify each Bank and each Issuing Bank against all liabilities, losses or expenses (including loss of margin, any loss or expense incurred in liquidating or employing deposits from third parties and any loss or expense incurred in connection with funds acquired by a Bank or Issuing Bank to fund or maintain Loans subject to the Euro-Rate Option) which such Bank or Issuing Bank actually sustains or incurs as a consequence of any:

(i)payment, prepayment, conversion or renewal of any Loan to which the Euro-Rate Option applies on a day other than the last day of the corresponding Interest Period (whether or not such payment or prepayment is mandatory, voluntary or automatic and whether or not such payment or prepayment is then due),

(ii)attempt by any Borrower to revoke (expressly, by later inconsistent notices or otherwise) in whole or part any notice relating to Loan Requests under Section 2.4 or Section 4.3 or prepayments under Section 5.4,

(iii)default by any Borrower in the performance or observance of any covenant or condition contained in this Agreement or any other Loan Document, including any failure of the Borrowers to pay when due (by acceleration or otherwise) any principal, interest, Commitment Fee or any other amount due hereunder, or

(iv)the assignment of any Loans under the Euro-Rate Option other than on the last day of the Interest Period or maturity date applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Borrowers pursuant to Section 5.4.2.

If any Bank or Issuing Bank actually sustains or incurs any such loss or expense, it shall from time to time notify TGI, as agent for the Borrowers, of the amount determined in good-faith (which determination may include such reasonable assumptions, allocations of costs and expenses and averaging or attribution methods as such Bank or Issuing Bank shall determine) by such Bank or Issuing Bank to be necessary to indemnify such Bank or Issuing Bank for such loss or expense.  Such notice shall set forth in reasonable detail the basis for such determination.  Such amount shall be due and payable by the Borrowers to such Bank or Issuing Bank, as the case may be, ten (10) Business Days after such notice is given.

5.6Mandatory Prepayments and Commitment Reductions.

5.6.1Currency Fluctuations; Application Among Interest Rate Options.

If on any Computation Date (i) the Dollar Equivalent Revolving Facility Usage is greater than the Revolving Credit Commitments, (ii) the Dollar Equivalent of Optional Currency Swing Loans shall exceed the Optional Currency Swing Loan Commitment, or (iii) the Dollar Equivalent of Letters of Credit Outstanding shall exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit, as a result of a change in exchange rates between one (1) or more Optional Currencies and Dollars, then the

NAI-1512846779v6


 

Administrative Agent shall notify TGI, as agent for the Borrowers of the same.  The Borrowers shall pay or prepay the Revolving Credit Loans and/or Swing Loans (subject to Borrowers’ indemnity obligations under Sections 5.4 [Voluntary Prepayments] and 5.5 [Additional Compensation in Certain Circumstances]) within one (1) Business Day after TGI receives such notice such that after giving effect to such payments or prepayments, (a) the Dollar Equivalent Revolving Facility Usage shall not exceed the Revolving Credit Commitments, and (b) the Dollar Equivalent of Optional Currency Swing Loans shall not exceed the Optional Currency Swing Loan Commitment.  With respect to the circumstance identified in clause (iii) of the first sentence of this paragraph, the Borrowers shall Cash Collateralize the Letters of Credit Outstanding to the extent of the amount by which the Dollar Equivalent of Letters of Credit Outstanding exceeds the Letter of Credit Sublimit.  All prepayments required pursuant to this Section 5.6.1 [Currency Fluctuations; Application Among Interest Rate Options] shall first be applied among the Interest Rate Options to the principal amount of the Revolving Credit Loans subject to the Base Rate Option, then to Revolving Credit Loans subject to a Euro-Rate Option and then to Optional Currency Swing Loans subject to the Euro-Rate Option.  In accordance with Section 5.5.2 [Indemnity], each Borrower shall indemnify the Banks for any loss or expense, including loss of margin, incurred with respect to any such prepayments applied against Loans subject to a Euro-Rate Option on any day other than the last day of the applicable Interest Period.

5.6.2Specified Asset Sales.

The Borrowers shall prepay the Revolving Credit Loans in an amount equal to 100% of the Net Asset Sale Proceeds received from any Specified Asset Sale (each, a “Specified Asset Sale Prepayment”).  Such Specified Asset Sale Prepayment shall be made no later than five (5) Business Days following the receipt of any such Net Asset Sale Proceeds. All Specified Asset Sale Prepayments shall be applied to prepay, with interest and with any additional compensation required under Section 5.5.2, the Revolving Credit Loans outstanding hereunder.  All prepayments of Revolving Credit Loans pursuant to this Section 5.6.2 shall be applied to the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans of each Bank in proportion to its Ratable Share.

5.6.3Anti-Cash Hoarding.

If any Revolving Credit Loans are outstanding, and the aggregate amount of Balance Sheet Cash exceeds $50,000,000.00 for a period of five (5) consecutive Business Days, then not later than the first (1st) Business Day following the end of such five (5) Business Day period, the Borrowers shall prepay the Revolving Credit Loans in an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the outstanding amount of the Revolving Credit Loans at such time and (ii) the aggregate amount of Balance Sheet Cash in excess of $50,000,000.00 on such fifth (5th) Business Day. All such prepayments shall be applied to prepay, with interest and with any additional compensation required under Section 5.5.2, the Revolving Credit Loans outstanding hereunder.  All prepayments of Revolving Credit Loans pursuant to this Section 5.6.3 shall be applied to the outstanding Revolving Credit Loans of each Bank in proportion to its Ratable Share.

5.6.4Availability Reserve.

No later than five (5) Business Days following the receipt of any Net Asset Sale Proceeds from a Specified Asset Sale, the Availability Reserve shall be re-calculated to include

NAI-1512846779v6


 

such Net Asset Sale Proceeds.  Borrowers shall prepay, with interest and with any additional compensation required under Section 5.5.2, the amount (if any) by which the Dollar Equivalent Revolving Facility Usage at the time of any such re-calculation and after giving effect thereto exceeds the amount of the Revolving Credit Commitments.  Each increase in the Availability Reserve pursuant to this Section 5.6.4 shall be allocated to each Bank in proportion to its Ratable Share.

5.7Interbank Market Presumption.

For all purposes of this Agreement and each other Loan Document with respect to any aspects of the Euro-Rate, any Loan under the Euro-Rate Option or any Optional Currency, each Bank and the Administrative Agent shall be presumed to have obtained rates, funding, currencies, deposits, and the like in the applicable interbank market regardless whether it did so or not; and, each Bank’s and the Administrative Agent’s determination of amounts payable under, and actions required or authorized by, Sections 4.5 [Euro-Rate Unascertainable] and 5.5 [Additional Compensation in Certain Circumstances] shall be calculated, at each Bank’s and the Administrative Agent’s option, as though each Bank and the Administrative Agent funded its Borrowing Tranche of Loans under the Euro-Rate Option through the purchase of deposits of the types and maturities corresponding to the deposits used as a reference in accordance with the terms hereof in determining the Euro-Rate applicable to such Loans, whether in fact that is the case.

5.8Taxes.

For purposes of this Section, the term “Bank” includes any Issuing Bank and PNC Bank as provider of the Swing Loans.

5.8.1Payments Free of Taxes.

Any and all payments by or on account of any obligation of the Loan Parties hereunder or under any other Loan Documents shall be made free and clear of and without reduction or withholding for any Taxes except as required by applicable Law.  If any applicable Law (as determined in the good faith discretion of an applicable Withholding Agent) requires the deduction or withholding of any Tax from any such payment by a Withholding Agent, then the applicable Withholding Agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Official Body in accordance with applicable Law and, if such Tax is an Indemnified Tax, then the sum payable by the applicable Loan Party shall be increased as necessary so that after such deduction or withholding has been made (including such deductions and withholdings applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 5.8 [Taxes]) the applicable Bank, the Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been made.

5.8.2Payment of Other Taxes by the Loan Parties.

The Loan Parties shall timely pay to the relevant Official Body in accordance with applicable Law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent timely reimburse it for the payment of, any Other Taxes.

The Loan Parties shall indemnify the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank and each Bank, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section 5.8 [Taxes]) payable or paid by the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Bank or such Bank, as the case may be, or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to such Bank, the Issuing Bank or the Administrative Agent, and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Official Body.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrowers by a Bank (with copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Bank, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

5.8.4Indemnification by the Banks.

Each Bank shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within ten (10) days after demand therefor, for (i) any Indemnified Taxes attributable to such Bank (but only to the extent that any Loan Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Indemnified Taxes and without limiting the obligation of any of the Loan Parties to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Bank’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 11.11.4 [Participations] relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register, and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Bank, in each case, that are payable or paid by the Administrative Agent in connection with any Loan Document, and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Official Body.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Bank by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error.  Each Bank hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Bank under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the Administrative Agent to the Bank from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this Section 5.8.4 [Indemnification by the Banks].

5.8.5Evidence of Payments.

As soon as practicable after any payment of Taxes by the Loan Parties to an Official Body, the Loan Parties (or any one of them) shall deliver to the Administrative Agent the original or a certified copy of a receipt issued by such Official Body evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent.

(i)Any Bank that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding Tax with respect to payments made hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall deliver to the Borrowers (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at the time or times reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent

NAI-1512846779v6


 

as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, any Bank, if requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable Law or reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Bank is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the preceding two sentences, the completion, execution and submission of such documentation (other than such documentation set forth in Section 5.8.6(ii)(a), (ii)(b) and (ii)(d) below) shall not be required if in the Bank’s reasonable judgment such completion, execution or submission would subject such Bank to any material unreimbursed cost or expense or would materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of such Bank.

(ii)Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event that any Borrower is resident for tax purposes in the United States of America:

(a)any Bank that is a U.S. Person shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date on which such Bank becomes a Bank hereunder (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent), properly executed copies of IRS Form W-9 certifying that such Bank is exempt from U.S. federal backup withholding tax;

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

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

(2)duly completed and executed copies of IRS Form W-8ECI;

NAI-1512846779v6


 

Certificate”) and (B) duly completed and executed copies of IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, or

(4)to the extent a Foreign Bank is not the beneficial owner, properly executed copies of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit 5.8.6(B) or Exhibit 5.8.6(C), IRS Form W-9, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable; provided that if the Foreign Bank is a partnership and one or more direct or indirect partners of such Foreign Bank are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, such Foreign Bank may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit 5.8.6(D) on behalf of each such direct and indirect partner;

(c)any Foreign Bank shall, to the extent it is legally entitled to do so, deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Foreign Bank becomes a Bank under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the reasonable request of the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent), executed copies of any other form prescribed by applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding Tax, duly completed, together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable Law to permit the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made; and

(d)if a payment made to a Bank under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Bank were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, as applicable), such Bank 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 Internal Revenue Code) 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 Bank has complied with such Bank’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment.  Solely for purposes of this clause (d), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

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

5.8.7Refund.

If any party determines, in its reasonable discretion, that it has received a refund in respect of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified pursuant to this Section 5.8 [Taxes], (including by payment of additional amounts pursuant to this Section 5.8 [Taxes]), it shall pay to

NAI-1512846779v6


 

the indemnifying party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made under this Section 5.8 [Taxes] with respect to the Taxes (including without limitation Other Taxes) giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses (including Taxes) of the indemnified party and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Official Body with respect to such refund or credit).  Such indemnifying party, upon the request of such indemnified party, shall repay to such indemnified party the amount paid over pursuant to this Section 5.8.8 (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Official Body) in the event that such indemnified party is required to repay such refund or credit to such Official Body.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5.8.7, in no event will the indemnified party be required to pay any amount to an indemnifying party pursuant to this Section 5.8.7, 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 or credit 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 which it deems confidential) to the indemnifying party or any other Person.

5.8.8Survival.

Each party’s obligations under this Section 5.8 [Taxes] shall survive the resignation of the Administrative Agent or any assignment of rights by, or the replacement of, a Bank, the termination of the Revolving Credit Commitments and the repayment, satisfaction or discharge of all Obligations.

5.8.9United Kingdom Tax Information

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing in the case of a Borrower that is a resident for tax purposes of the United Kingdom, any Bank entitled to benefits under the United States/United Kingdom double tax treaty shall deliver to (i) the Internal Revenue Service (with copies delivered to TGI, the relevant Borrower and the Administrative Agent, in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Bank becomes a Bank under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the request of TGI or such Borrower or the Administrative Agent, but only if such Bank is legally entitled to do so) duly completed copies (in triplicate) of the United Kingdom HM Revenue & Customs Form US/Company 2002 (or such other form as may from time to time be prescribed by applicable law or regulation) claiming exemption from withholding on account of United Kingdom income tax pursuant to the United States/United Kingdom double tax treaty or (ii) (but only if such Bank is a holder of a Double Taxation Treaty Passport) TGI and the Administrative Agent of such Bank’s HMRC DTTP number, and upon receipt thereof, the Loan Parties each agree to promptly complete and file such forms, certificates and documents and otherwise cooperate with such Bank, as such Bank may request from time to time, in order for such Bank to establish that such Bank is not subject to, or is entitled to a reduction in the amount of or exemption from, any deduction, withholding or other Taxes with respect to any payment to such Bank, including HMRC Form DTTP 2.  The relevant Borrower and such Bank shall each provide all reasonable information and assistance to the Internal Revenue Service and Inland Revenue on a timely basis in order efficiently to process the relevant treaty claim, and shall keep each other (through the Administrative Agent) informed of any matters relating to such claim, including such Borrower

5.9Judgment Currency.

5.9.1Currency Conversion Procedures for Judgments.

If for the purposes of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder or under any other Loan Document in any currency (the “Original Currency”) into another currency (the “Other Currency”), the parties hereby agree, to the fullest extent permitted by Law, that the rate of exchange used shall be that at which in accordance with normal banking procedures each Bank could purchase the Original Currency with the Other Currency after any premium and costs of exchange on the Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given.

5.9.2Indemnity in Certain Events.

The obligation of the Borrowers in respect of any sum due from the Borrowers to any Bank hereunder shall, notwithstanding any judgment in an Other Currency, whether pursuant to a judgment or otherwise, be discharged only to the extent that, on the Business Day following receipt by any Bank of any sum adjudged to be so due in such Other Currency, such Bank may in accordance with normal banking procedures purchase the Original Currency with such Other Currency.  If the amount of the Original Currency so purchased is less than the sum originally due to such Bank in the Original Currency, each Borrower agrees, as a separate obligation and notwithstanding any such judgment or payment, to indemnify such Bank against such loss.
