59

Execution Version
(a)    for purposes of making the computation referred to above, in the event that the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary incurs, assumes, guarantees, redeems, retires or extinguishes any Indebtedness subsequent to the commencement of the period for which such ratio is being calculated but on or prior to or substantially concurrently with the event for which the calculation is made (a “Calculation Date”), then except as otherwise set forth in clauses (c) and (d) below, such calculation shall be made giving pro forma effect to such incurrence, assumption, guarantee, redemption, retirement or extinguishment of Indebtedness as if the same had occurred at the beginning of the applicable Test Period; provided that for purposes of making the computation of Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage or Consolidated Net Total Leverage for the computation of Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage Ratio or Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio, as applicable, Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage or Consolidated Net Total Leverage, as applicable, shall be Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage or Consolidated Net Total Leverage as of the date the relevant action is being taken giving pro forma effect to any redemption, retirement or extinguishment of Indebtedness in connection with such event;
(b)    for purposes of making the computation referred to above, if any Investments, Dispositions or designations of Unrestricted Subsidiaries or Restricted Subsidiaries are made (or committed to be made pursuant to a definitive agreement) subsequent to the commencement of the period for which such calculation is being made but on or prior to or simultaneously with the relevant Calculation Date, then such calculation shall be made giving pro forma effect to such Investments, Dispositions and designations as if the same had occurred at the beginning of the applicable Test Period in a manner consistent, where applicable, with the pro forma adjustments set forth in clause (j) of and the last proviso of the first sentence of the definition of “Consolidated EBITDA.” If since the beginning of such period any Person that subsequently became a Restricted Subsidiary or was merged with or into the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries since the beginning of such period shall have made any Investment or Disposition that would have required adjustment pursuant to this provision, then such calculation shall be made giving pro forma effect thereto for such Test Period as if such Investment or Disposition had occurred at the beginning of the applicable Test Period;
(c)    [reserved];
(d)    for purposes of calculating the amount of Liens permitted to be incurred pursuant to either (i) (solely with respect to Indebtedness incurred pursuant to Section 2.25(a) in reliance on the definition of “Maximum Incremental Facilities Amount”) Section 7.3(h) or (ii) (solely with respect to Indebtedness incurred pursuant to Section 7.2(p) in reliance on the definition of “Maximum Incremental Facilities Amount”) Section 7.3(g)), any pro forma calculation of the Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage Ratio shall not give effect to any other incurrence of Liens on the date of determination pursuant to any other clause or sub-clause of Section 7.3;
(e)    for purposes of (i) determining compliance with any provision of this Agreement which requires pro forma compliance with the covenants set forth in Section 7.1 or pro forma calculation of the Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage Ratio, Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio or the Consolidated Net Interest Coverage Ratio, (ii) determining the accuracy of representation and warranties in all material respects (other than Specified Representations), (iii) determining whether a Default or an Event of Default (other than a Specified Event of Default) exists or (iv) testing baskets set forth in Section 7 of this Agreement (including baskets measured as a percentage of Consolidated EBITDA), in each case, solely for purposes of determining whether the incurrence of Indebtedness (other than the incurrence of any Loan or Letter of Credit under the Revolving Facility but including the incurrence of Loans under a Revolving Commitment Increase) or Liens, or the making of Investments, Restricted Payments, fundamental changes under Section 7.4 or the designation of an Unrestricted Subsidiary, in each case necessary or advisable (as determined by the Borrower in good faith) for the consummation of a Limited Condition Acquisition is
60

Execution Version
permitted (and, for the avoidance of doubt, not for purposes of determining quarterly compliance with the financial covenant set forth in Section 7.1), the date of determination shall, at the option of the Borrower, be the time the definitive agreements for such Limited Condition Acquisition are entered into (or, if applicable, (i) the date of delivery of an irrevocable notice or declaration of such Limited Condition Acquisition or (ii) at the time of the completion of such transaction or the making of such repurchase or repayment) after giving pro forma effect to the Limited Condition Acquisition and the other transactions to be entered into in connection therewith (including any incurrence of Indebtedness and the use of proceeds thereof) as if they occurred at the beginning of the applicable Test Period (in a manner consistent, where applicable, with the pro forma adjustments set forth in clause (j) of and the last proviso of the first sentence of the definition of “Consolidated EBITDA”), and, for the avoidance of doubt, if any of such baskets or ratios are exceeded as a result of fluctuations in such ratio or basket, including due to fluctuations in Consolidated EBITDA of the Borrower or the Person subject to such Limited Condition Acquisition, at or prior to the consummation of the relevant transaction or action, such baskets or ratios will not be deemed to have been exceeded as a result of such fluctuations solely for purposes of determining whether the relevant transaction or action is permitted to be consummated or taken; provided that if the Borrower has made such an election, in connection with the calculation of any basket or ratio availability with respect to the incurrence of Indebtedness or Liens, or the making of Investments, Restricted Payments, Dispositions, fundamental changes under Section 7.4 or the designation of an Unrestricted Subsidiary (excluding the financial covenant set forth in Section 7.1) on or following the date of such election and prior to the earlier of the date on which such Limited Condition Acquisition is consummated or the definitive agreement for such Limited Condition Acquisition (or, if applicable, the notice or declaration of such Limited Condition Acquisition) is terminated, any such ratio or basket shall be calculated on a pro forma basis assuming such Limited Condition Acquisitions and other transactions in connection therewith (including any incurrence of Indebtedness and the use of proceeds thereof) have been consummated, except to the extent that such calculation would result in a lower Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage Ratio or Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio or a higher Consolidated Net Interest Coverage Ratio or larger basket, as applicable, than would apply if such calculation was made without giving pro forma effect to such Limited Condition Acquisition and the other transactions to be entered into in connection therewith (including any incurrence of Indebtedness and the use of proceeds thereof); provided that notwithstanding the foregoing, when calculating the Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio or the Consolidated Net Interest Coverage Ratio, as applicable, for purposes of (i) determining the Applicable Margin, (ii) determining the Applicable Commitment Fee Rate and (iii) determining actual compliance (and not pro forma compliance or compliance on a pro forma basis) with the covenants pursuant to Section 7.1, any pro forma event of the type set forth in clauses (a) or (b) of this Section 1.3 that occurred subsequent to the end of the applicable Test Period shall not be given pro forma effect; and

1.4    Additional Alternative Currencies. (a)  The Borrower may from time to time request that Term Benchmark Loans be made under the Revolving Facility and/or Letters of Credit be issued in a currency other than those specifically listed in the definition of “Alternative Currency;” provided that such requested currency is a lawful currency (other than US Dollars) that is readily available and freely
61

Execution Version
transferable and convertible into Dollars. In the case of any such request with respect to the making of Term Benchmark Loans under the Revolving Facility, such request shall be subject to the consent of the Administrative Agent and the Revolving Lenders; which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed but shall be subject to each Revolving Lender’s then-existing capability to offer such currency generally to its corporate borrowers, and in the case of any such request with respect to the issuance of Letters of Credit, such request shall be subject to the consent of the Administrative Agent, the Issuing Lender and the Revolving Lenders.
(b)    Any such request shall be made to the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m., fourteen Business Days prior to the date of the desired borrowing of Revolving Loans or issuance of a Letter of Credit (as described in the foregoing clause (a)) (or such other time or date as may be agreed by the Administrative Agent and, in the case of any such request pertaining to Letters of Credit, the Issuing Lender, in its or their sole discretion). In the case of any such request pertaining to such Term Benchmark Loans, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Revolving Lender thereof; and in the case of any such request pertaining to such Letters of Credit, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify the Issuing Lender thereof. Each Revolving Lender (in the case of any such request pertaining to Term Benchmark Loans) or the Issuing Lender (in the case of a request pertaining to Letters of Credit) shall notify the Administrative Agent, not later than 11:00 a.m., ten Business Days after receipt of such request whether it consents to the making of Term Benchmark Loans or the issuance of Letters of Credit, as the case may be, in such requested currency.
(c)    Any failure by a Revolving Lender or an Issuing Lender, as the case may be, to respond to such request within the time period specified in the last sentence of Section 1.4(b) shall be deemed to be a refusal by such Revolving Lender or the Issuing Lender, as the case may be, to permit Term Benchmark Loans to be made or Letters of Credit to be issued in such requested currency. If the Administrative Agent and all the Revolving Lenders consent to making Term Benchmark Loans in such requested currency, the Administrative Agent shall promptly so notify the Borrower and such currency shall thereupon be deemed for all purposes to be an Alternative Currency hereunder for purposes of any borrowings of Term Benchmark Loans; and if the Administrative Agent and the Issuing Lender consent to the issuance of Letters of Credit in such requested currency, the Administrative Agent shall promptly so notify the Borrower and such currency shall thereupon be deemed for all purposes to be an Alternative Currency hereunder for purposes of any Letter of Credit issuances by the Issuing Lender. If the Administrative Agent shall fail to obtain consent to any request for an additional currency under this Section 1.4, the Administrative Agent shall promptly so notify the Borrower. Any specified currency of an Existing Letter of Credit that is neither US Dollars nor one of the Alternative Currencies specifically listed in the definition of “Alternative Currency” shall be deemed an Alternative Currency with respect to such Existing Letter of Credit only.
1.5    Exchange Rates; Currency Equivalents. (a)  The Administrative Agent, the Swing Line Lender or the Issuing Lender, as applicable, shall determine the Dollar Equivalent amounts of Borrowings or Letter of Credit extensions denominated in Alternative Currencies. Such Dollar Equivalent shall become effective as of such Revaluation Date and shall be the Dollar Equivalent of such amounts until the next Revaluation Date to occur. Except for purposes of financial statements delivered by the Borrower hereunder or calculating financial covenants hereunder or except as otherwise provided herein, the applicable amount of any Alternative Currency for purposes of the Loan Documents shall be such Dollar Equivalent amount as so determined by the Administrative , the Swing Line Lender or the Issuing Lender, as applicable.
(b)    Wherever in this Agreement in connection with a borrowing of Revolving Loans, conversion, continuation or prepayment of a Term Benchmark Loan or a SONIA Loan or the issuance,
62

Execution Version
amendment or extension of a Letter of Credit, an amount, such as a required minimum or multiple amount, is expressed in US Dollars, but such Revolving Loan, Term Benchmark Loan or Letter of Credit is denominated in an Alternative Currency, such amount shall be the relevant Alternative Currency Equivalent of such US Dollar amount (rounded to the nearest unit of such Alternative Currency, with 0.5 of a unit being rounded upward), as determined by the Administrative Agent or the relevant Issuing Lender, as the case may be.
1.6    Accounting Terms and Determination. Unless otherwise defined or specified herein, all accounting terms used herein shall be interpreted, all accounting determinations hereunder shall be made, and all financial statements required to be delivered hereunder shall be prepared, in accordance with GAAP as in effect from time to time, applied on a basis consistent with the most recent audited consolidated financial statement of the Borrower delivered pursuant to Section 6.1(a); provided that if the Borrower notifies the Administrative Agent that the Borrower wishes to amend any covenant in Section 7 to eliminate the effect of any change in GAAP on the operation of such covenant (or if the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower that the Required Lenders wish to amend Section 7 for such purpose), then the Borrower’s compliance with such covenant shall be determined on the basis of GAAP in effect immediately before the relevant change in GAAP became effective, until either such notice is withdrawn or such covenant is amended in a manner satisfactory to the Borrower and the Required Lenders. All calculations of (a) the Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage or the Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio, (b) the Consolidated Net Interest Coverage Ratio, (c) Consolidated EBITDA, (d) Consolidated Net Interest Expense and (e) each financial calculation included within or required to be made in connection with any such terms shall be made on a pro forma basis. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for purposes of determining compliance with any covenant (including the computation of any financial covenant) contained herein, Indebtedness of the Borrower and its Subsidiaries shall be deemed to be carried at 100% of the outstanding principal amount thereof, and the effects of FASB ASC 825 and FASB ASC 470-20 on financial liabilities shall be disregarded.
1.7    Letter of Credit Amounts. Unless otherwise specified herein, the amount of a Letter of Credit at any time shall be deemed to be the stated amount of such Letter of Credit in effect at such time; provided, however, that with respect to any Letter of Credit that, by its terms or the terms of the Application or any other document, agreement or instrument entered into by the applicable Issuing Lender and the Borrower with respect thereto, provides for one or more automatic increases in the stated amount thereof, the amount of such Letter of Credit shall be deemed to be the maximum stated amount of such Letter of Credit after giving effect to all such increases, whether or not such maximum stated amount is in effect at such time.
1.8    Interest Rates; LIBOR Notification. The interest rate on a Loan denominated in US Dollars or an Alternative Currency may be derived from an interest rate benchmark that is, or may in the future become, the subject of regulatory reform. Regulators have signaled the need to use alternative benchmark reference rates for some of these interest rate benchmarks and, as a result, such interest rate benchmarks may cease to comply with applicable laws and regulations, may be permanently discontinued, and/or the basis on which they are calculated may change. The London interbank offered rate (“LIBOR”) is intended to represent the rate at which contributing banks may obtain short-term borrowings from each other in the London interbank market. On March 5, 2021, the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”) publicly announced that: (a) immediately after December 31, 2021, publication of all seven euro LIBOR settings, all seven Swiss Franc LIBOR settings, the spot next, 1-week, 2-month and 12-month Japanese Yen LIBOR settings, the overnight, 1-week, 2-month and 12-month British Pound Sterling LIBOR settings, and the 1-week and 2-month U.S. Dollar LIBOR settings will permanently cease; immediately after June 30, 2023, publication of the overnight and 12-month U.S. Dollar LIBOR settings will permanently cease; immediately after December 31, 2021, the 1-month, 3-month and 6-month Japanese Yen LIBOR settings and the 1-
63

Execution Version
month, 3-month and 6-month British Pound Sterling LIBOR settings will cease to be provided or, subject to consultation by the FCA, be provided on a changed methodology (or “synthetic”) basis and no longer be representative of the underlying market and economic reality they are intended to measure and that representativeness will not be restored; and immediately after June 30, 2023, the 1-month, 3-month and 6-month U.S. Dollar LIBOR settings will cease to be provided or, subject to the FCA’s consideration of the case, be provided on a synthetic basis and no longer be representative of the underlying market and economic reality they are intended to measure and that representativeness will not be restored. There is no assurance that dates announced by the FCA will not change or that the administrator of LIBOR and/or regulators will not take further action that could impact the availability, composition, or characteristics of LIBOR or the currencies and/or tenors for which LIBOR is published. Each party to this agreement should consult its own advisors to stay informed of any such developments. Public and private sector industry initiatives are currently underway to identify new or alternative reference rates to be used in place of LIBOR. Upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event, a Term SOFR Transition Event, an Early Opt-in Election or an Other Benchmark Rate Election, Section 2.17(b) and (c) provide a mechanism for determining an alternative rate of interest. The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Borrower, pursuant to Section 2.17(e), of any change to the reference rate upon which the interest rate on Term Benchmark Loans is based. However, the Administrative Agent does not warrant or accept any responsibility for, and shall not have any liability with respect to, the administration, submission or any other matter related to Daily Simple SONIA, LIBOR or other rates in the definition of “LIBO Rate” (or “EURIBOR Rate”, “TIBOR Rate”, “CDOR Rate” or “AUD Rate” as applicable) or with respect to any alternative or successor rate thereto, or replacement rate thereof (including, without limitation, (i) any such alternative, successor or replacement rate implemented pursuant to Section 2.17(b) or (c), whether upon the occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event, a Term SOFR Transition Event, an Early Opt-in Election or an Other Benchmark Rate Election, and (ii) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes pursuant to Section 2.17(d)), including without limitation, whether the composition or characteristics of any such alternative, successor or replacement reference rate will be similar to, or produce the same value or economic equivalence of, Daily Simple SONIA, the LIBO Rate (or the EURIBOR Rate, the TIBOR Rate, CDOR Rate or AUD Rate as applicable) or have the same volume or liquidity as did the London interbank offered rate (or the euro interbank offered rate or the Tokyo interbank offered rate, as applicable) prior to its discontinuance or unavailability. The Administrative Agent and its affiliates and/or other related entities may engage in transactions that affect the calculation of any Daily Simple SONIA, any alternative, successor or alternative rate (including any Benchmark Replacement) and/or any relevant adjustments thereto, in each case, in a manner adverse to the Borrower. The Administrative Agent may select information sources or services in its reasonable discretion to ascertain any SONIA, Daily Simple SONIA or any Term Benchmark Rate, any component thereof, or rates referenced in the definition thereof, in each case pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, and shall have no liability to the Borrower, any Lender or any other person or entity for damages of any kind, including direct or indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential damages, costs, losses or expenses (whether in tort, contract or otherwise and whether at law or in equity), for any error or calculation of any such rate (or component thereof) provided by any such information source or service.
1.9    Application of Multiple Relevant Provisions. With respect to any amounts incurred or transactions entered into (or consummated) in reliance on a provision of the Loan Documents under a specific covenant that does not require compliance with a financial ratio or test (including a test based on the Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage Ratio and/or the Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio) (any such amounts, the “Fixed Amounts”) substantially concurrently with or otherwise in the same transaction or series of related transactions with any amounts incurred or transactions entered into (or consummated) in reliance on a provision of the Loan Documents under the same covenant that requires compliance with a financial ratio or test (including the Consolidated Net Senior Secured Leverage Ratio
64

Execution Version
and/or the Consolidated Net Total Leverage Ratio) (any such amounts, the “Incurrence-Based Amounts”), it is understood and agreed that (a) the Fixed Amounts shall be disregarded in the calculation of the financial ratio or test applicable to the Incurrence-Based Amounts in connection with such substantially concurrent incurrence within the same covenant (it being understood that any Fixed Amount available under any covenant that is reallocated or otherwise utilized under a different covenant shall, for the avoidance of doubt, also constitute a Fixed Amount under such different covenant to which the Fixed Amount was reallocated to or utilized under), and (b) except as provided in clause (a), pro forma effect shall be given to the entire transaction. In addition, for the avoidance of doubt, any Indebtedness (and associated Liens, subject to the applicable priorities required pursuant to the applicable Incurrence-Based Amounts), Investments, Restricted Payments, liquidations, dissolutions, mergers, consolidations (or, in each case, any portion thereof) incurred or otherwise effected in reliance on Fixed Amounts shall be automatically and immediately reclassified at any time, unless the Borrower otherwise elects from time to time, as incurred under the applicable Incurrence-Based Amounts if the Borrower subsequently meets the applicable ratio for such Incurrence-Based Amounts on a pro forma basis (or would have met such ratio or test at the time such Fixed Amount was utilized).
1.10    Divisions. For all purposes under the Loan Documents, in connection with any division or plan of division under Delaware law (or any comparable event under a different jurisdiction’s laws): (a) if any asset, right, obligation or liability of any Person becomes the asset, right, obligation or liability of a different Person, then it shall be deemed to have been transferred from the original Person to the subsequent Person, and (b) if any new Person comes into existence, such new Person shall be deemed to have been organized and acquired on the first date of its existence by the holders of its Capital Stock at such time.
1.11    MIRE Event. No MIRE Event may be closed until the date that is (a) if there are no Mortgaged Properties located in an area which has been identified by the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development as a “special flood hazard area,” ten Business Days or (b) if there are any Mortgaged Properties located in an area which has been identified by the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development as a “special flood hazard area,” 30 days (in each case, the “Notice Period”), after the Administrative Agent has delivered to the Lenders the following documents in respect of such real property: (i) a completed “life of loan” standard flood hazard determination with respect to such Mortgaged Property from a third party vendor; (ii) if such Mortgaged Property is located in a “special flood hazard area”, (A) a notification to the Borrower of that fact and (if applicable) notification to the Borrower that flood insurance coverage is not available and (B) evidence of the receipt by the Borrower of such notice and (C) a notice about special flood hazard area status and flood disaster assistance executed by the Borrower; and (iii) evidence of flood insurance in amount sufficient to comply with the Flood Laws and otherwise reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent; provided that any such MIRE Event may be closed prior to the Notice Period if the Administrative Agent shall have received confirmation from each applicable Lender that such Lender has completed any necessary flood insurance due diligence to its reasonable satisfaction; and provided further that any obligations any Loan Party may have to grant a Mortgage within the applicable time period shall be extended for so long as is required to ensure compliance with the requirements set forth in this Section 1.11.
SECTION 2.    AMOUNT AND TERMS OF COMMITMENTS
2.1    Term Commitments. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, (a) each Tranche A Term Lender severally agrees to make a term loan (an “Initial Tranche A Term Loan”) in US Dollars to the Borrower on the Closing Date in an amount which will not exceed the amount of the Tranche A Term Commitment of such Lender, and (b) each Tranche B Term Lender severally agrees to make a term loan (an “Initial Tranche B Term Loan”) in US Dollars to the Borrower on the Closing Date in an amount which will not exceed the amount of the Tranche B Term Commitment of such Lender. The aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Term Loans for all purposes of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall
65

Execution Version
be the stated principal amount thereof outstanding from time to time. The Term Loans may from time to time be Term Benchmark Loans or ABR Loans, as determined by the Borrower and notified to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Sections 2.2 and 2.13.
2.2    Procedure for Initial Term Loan Borrowing. The Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent irrevocable written notice (which notice must be received by the Administrative Agent one Business Day prior to the anticipated Closing Date) requesting that the Term Lenders make the Initial Term Loans on the Closing Date and specifying the amount to be borrowed and the requested Interest Period, if applicable. Upon receipt of such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Term Lender thereof. Not later than 11:00 A.M., New York City time, on the Closing Date each Term Lender shall make available to the Administrative Agent at the Funding Office an amount in immediately available funds equal to the Initial Term Loan or Initial Term Loans to be made by such Lender. The Administrative Agent shall credit the account designated in writing by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent with the aggregate of the amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by the Term Lenders in immediately available funds.

2.4    Revolving Commitments.
(a)    Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, each Revolving Lender severally agrees to make revolving credit loans (“Revolving Loans”) in US Dollars or in one or more Alternative Currencies to the Borrower from time to time during the Revolving Commitment Period in an aggregate principal amount at any one time outstanding (i) which when added to such Lender’s Revolving Percentage of the L/C Obligations then outstanding and such Lender’s Revolving Percentage of the Swing Line Loans then outstanding, does not exceed the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment and (ii) which will not cause the sum of the aggregate Revolving Extensions of Credit of all Lenders denominated in Alternative Currencies to exceed the Alternative Currency Sublimit. On each date that a Revolving Loan is made, the Borrower shall first repay all of its Swing Line Loans then outstanding with the proceeds of any such

Borrowing. During the Revolving Commitment Period, the Borrower may use the Revolving Commitments by borrowing, prepaying the Revolving Loans in whole or in part, and reborrowing, all in accordance with the terms and conditions hereof. Subject to Section 2.17, each Revolving Borrowing shall be comprised (a) in the case of Borrowings in US Dollars, entirely of ABR Loans or Term Benchmark Loans as determined by the Borrower and notified to the Administrative Agent in accordance with Sections 2.5 and 2.13 and (b) in the case of Borrowings in any other Alternative Currency, entirely of Term Benchmark Loans or SONIA Loans, as applicable, in each case of the same Alternative Currency, as the Borrower may request in accordance herewith. Each Swingline Loan shall be an ABR Loan. Each Lender at its option may make any Loan by causing any domestic or foreign branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan; provided that any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay such Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
(b)    The Borrower shall repay all outstanding Revolving Loans made to it on the Revolving Termination Date.
2.5    Procedure for Revolving Loan Borrowing. The Borrower may borrow under the Revolving Commitments during the Revolving Commitment Period on any Business Day; provided that the Borrower shall give the Administrative Agent irrevocable written notice pursuant to a Borrowing Notice (which notice must be received by the Administrative Agent (i) in the case of Term Benchmark Loans denominated in US Dollars, prior to 11:00 a.m., New York City time, three Business Days prior to the requested Borrowing Date, (ii) in the case of a Term Benchmark Borrowing denominated in Euros or Yen, not later than 12:00 p.m., New York City time, three Business Days before the date of the proposed Borrowing, (iii) in the case of ABR Loans, prior to 10:00 a.m., New York City time, on the proposed Borrowing Date, (iii) in the case of Term Benchmark Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency (other than Yen or Euros), prior to 12:00 Noon, New York City time, four Business Days prior to the requested Borrowing Date and (iv) in the case of SONIA Loans denominated in Sterling, not later than 12:00 Noon, New York City time, five Business Days before the date of the requested Borrowing Date), specifying (x) the amount, currency and Type of Revolving Loans to be borrowed, (y) the requested Borrowing Date and (z) in the case of Term Benchmark Loans, the respective amounts of each such Type of Loan and the respective lengths of the initial Interest Period therefor. Each borrowing by the Borrower under the Revolving Commitments shall be in an amount equal to (x) in the case of ABR Loans, $50,000 or a whole multiple of $50,000 in excess thereof (or, if the then aggregate Available Revolving Commitments are less than $50,000, such lesser amount), (y) in the case of Term Benchmark Loans, $100,000 (or the Alternative Currency Equivalent thereof, as applicable) or a whole multiple of $100,000 (or the Alternative Currency Equivalent thereof, as applicable) in excess thereof and (z) in the case of SONIA Loans, the Alternative Currency Equivalent of $100,000 or a whole multiple of the Alternative Currency Equivalent of $100,000 in excess thereof. Upon receipt of any such notice from the Borrower, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Revolving Lender thereof. Each Revolving Lender will make the amount of its pro rata share of each borrowing available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Borrower at the Funding Office by 12:00 noon, New York City time, to the account of the Administrative Agent most recently designated by it for such purpose by notice to the Lenders; provided that Swingline Loans shall be made as provided in Section 2.6. Such borrowing will then be made available to the Borrower by the Administrative Agent crediting the account designated in writing by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent with the aggregate of the amounts made available to the Administrative Agent by such Revolving Lenders and in like funds as received by the Administrative Agent. If no election as to the Type of a Revolving Loan denominated in US Dollars is specified, then the requested Loan shall be an ABR Loan. If no Interest Period is specified with respect to any requested Term Benchmark Loan, the Borrower shall be deemed to have selected an Interest Period of one month’s duration. If the Borrower fails to specify a currency in a Borrowing Notice with respect to a Term Benchmark Loan, then the Term Benchmark Loan so requested shall be made in US Dollars.

2.6    Swing Line Loans.
(a)    Swing Line Facility. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein, the Swing Line Lender, in reliance upon the agreements of the Revolving Lenders set forth in this Section 2.6, agrees to make loans (each such loan, a “Swing Line Loan”) to the Borrower in US Dollars from time to time on any Business Day (other than the Closing Date) until and excluding the Business Day preceding the Revolving Termination Date in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time outstanding the amount of the Swing Line Sublimit, notwithstanding the fact that such Swing Line Loans, when aggregated with the aggregate principal amount of all Revolving Loans held by the Lender acting as Swing Line Lender then outstanding and such Lender’s Revolving Percentage of the L/C Obligations then outstanding, may exceed the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Commitment; provided, however, that after giving effect to any Swing Line Loan, (i) the aggregate amount of Available Revolving Commitments shall not less than zero, (ii) the Available Revolving Commitment of any Revolving Lender shall not be less than zero; and provided, further, that the Borrower shall not use the proceeds of any Swing Line Loan to refinance any outstanding Swing Line Loan and (iii) so long as there is a Defaulting Lender, the Swing Line Lender shall not be required to fund any Swing Line Loans where the sum of the Non-Defaulting Lenders’ Revolving Percentage, as applicable, of the outstanding Revolving Loans, their participations in Swing Line Loans and their participations in Letters of Credit after giving effect to any such requested Swing Line Loan would exceed the aggregate Revolving Commitments of the Non-Defaulting Lenders. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, the Borrower may borrow under this Section 2.6, prepay under Section 2.11, and reborrow under this Section 2.6. Each Swing Line Loan shall be an ABR Loan and may not be converted to a Term Benchmark Loan. Immediately upon the making of a Swing Line Loan, each Revolving Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Swing Line Lender a risk participation in such Swing Line Loan in an amount equal to the product of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Percentage times the amount of such Swing Line Loan.
(b)    Borrowing Procedures. Each Borrowing of Swing Line Loans shall be made upon the Borrower’s irrevocable notice to the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent, which may be given by telephone. Each such notice must be received by the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 12:00 noon New York City time on the requested borrowing date, and shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed, which shall be a minimum principal amount of $50,000, (ii) the requested borrowing date, which shall be a Business Day and (iii) the account of the Borrower to be credited with the proceeds of such Borrowing. Each such telephonic notice must be confirmed promptly by delivery to the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent of a written Swing Line Loan Notice, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower. Promptly after receipt by the Swing Line Lender of any telephonic Swing Line Loan Notice, the Swing Line Lender will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has also received such Swing Line Loan Notice and, if not, the Swing Line Lender will notify the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) of the contents thereof. Unless the Swing Line Lender has received notice (by telephone or in writing) from the Administrative Agent (including at the request of any Revolving Lender) prior to 2:00 p.m. New York City time on the date of the proposed Swing Line Loan (A) directing the Swing Line Lender not to make such Swing Line Loan as a result of the limitations set forth in the first proviso to the first sentence of Section 2.6(a), or (B) that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 5.2 is not then satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Swing Line Lender will, not later than 3:00 p.m. New York City time on the borrowing date specified in such Swing Line Loan Notice, make the amount of its Swing Line Loan available to the Borrower.
(c)    Refinancing of Swing Line Loans.
68

Execution Version
(i)    The Swing Line Lender at any time in its sole and absolute discretion may request, on behalf of the Borrower (and the Borrower hereby irrevocably requests and authorizes the Swing Line Lender to so request on its behalf), that each Revolving Lender make an ABR Loan in an amount equal to such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Percentage of the amount of Swing Line Loans then outstanding. Such request shall be made in writing (which written request shall be deemed to be a Borrowing Notice for purposes hereof) and in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.5, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified therein for the principal amount of ABR Loans, but subject to the conditions set forth in Section 5.2 (other than the delivery of a Borrowing Notice) and subject to the unutilized portion of the aggregate Revolving Commitments. The Swing Line Lender shall furnish the Borrower with a copy of the applicable Borrowing Notice promptly after delivering such notice to the Administrative Agent. Each Revolving Lender shall make an amount equal to its Revolving Percentage of the amount specified in such Borrowing Notice available to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds (and the Administrative Agent may apply cash collateral available with respect to the applicable Swing Line Loan) for the account of the Swing Line Lender at the Administrative Agent’s Office (and in any event, if such Borrowing Notice is received by 12:00 noon, New York City time, on a Business Day no later than 5:00 p.m. New York City time on such Business Day and if received after 12:00 noon, New York City time, on a Business Day shall mean no later than 10:00 a.m. New York City time on the immediately succeeding Business Day), whereupon, subject to Section 2.6(c)(ii), each Revolving Lender that so makes funds available shall be deemed to have made an ABR Loan to the Borrower in such amount. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the Swing Line Lender.
(ii)    If for any reason any Swing Line Loan cannot be refinanced by such a borrowing of Revolving Loans in accordance with Section 2.6(c)(i) (including as a result of a proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law), the request for ABR Loans submitted by the Swing Line Lender as set forth herein shall be deemed to be a request by the Swing Line Lender that each of the Revolving Lenders fund its risk participation in the relevant Swing Line Loan, and each Revolving Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Line Lender pursuant to Section 2.6(c)(i) shall be deemed payment in respect of such participation; provided, that (i) all interest payable on the Swing Line Loans is for the account of Swing Line Lender until the date as of which the respective participation is purchased and (ii) at the time any purchase of participations pursuant to this sentence is actually made, the purchasing Revolving Lender shall pay the Swing Line Lender interest on the principal amount of such participation purchased for each day from and including the day upon which the borrowing of the Swing Line Loan occurs under this Agreement to but excluding the date of payment for such participation, at the applicable rate received by the Swing Line Lender.
(iii)    If any Revolving Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Line Lender any amount required to be paid by such Revolving Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.6(c) by the time specified in Section 2.6(c)(i), the Swing Line Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Revolving Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the Swing Line Lender at a rate per annum equal to the greater of the Federal Funds Effective Rate and a rate determined by the Swing Line Lender in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank
69

Execution Version
compensation, plus any administrative, processing or similar fees customarily charged by the Swing Line Lender in connection with the foregoing. If such Revolving Lender pays such amount (with interest and fees as aforesaid), the amount so paid shall constitute such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan included in the relevant borrowing or funded participation in the relevant Swing Line Loan, as the case may be. A certificate of the Swing Line Lender submitted to any Revolving Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this clause (iii) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(iv)    Each Revolving Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Loans or to purchase and fund risk participations in Swing Line Loans pursuant to this Section 2.6(c) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right that such Lender may have against the Swing Line Lender, the Borrower, any Subsidiary of Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (B) the occurrence or continuance of an Event of Default, or (C) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing; provided, however, that each Revolving Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Loans pursuant to this Section 2.6(c) (but not to purchase and fund risk participations in Swing Line Loans) is subject to the conditions set forth in Section 5.2. No such purchase or funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the Borrower to repay Swing Line Loans, together with interest as provided herein.
(d)    Repayment of Participations.
(i)    At any time after any Revolving Lender has purchased and funded a risk participation in a Swing Line Loan, if the Swing Line Lender receives any payment on account of such Swing Line Loan, the Swing Line Lender will distribute to such Revolving Lender its Revolving Percentage of such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Revolving Lender’s risk participation was funded) in the same funds as those received by the Swing Line Lender.
(ii)    If any payment received by the Swing Line Lender in respect of principal or interest on any Swing Line Loan is required to be returned by the Swing Line Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 10.21 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by the Swing Line Lender in its discretion), each Revolving Lender shall pay to the Swing Line Lender its Revolving Percentage thereof on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Effective Rate. The Administrative Agent will make such demand upon the request of the Swing Line Lender. The obligations of the Revolving Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.
(e)    Interest for Account of Swing Line Lender. The Swing Line Lender shall be responsible for invoicing the Borrower for interest on the Swing Line Loans. Until each Revolving Lender funds its Revolving Loans that are ABR Loans or risk participation pursuant to this Section 2.6 to refinance such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Percentage of any Swing Line Loan, interest in respect of such Revolving Percentage shall be solely for the account of the Swing Line Lender.

(f)    Payments Directly to Swing Line Lender. The Borrower shall make all payments of principal and interest in respect of the Swing Line Loans directly to the Swing Line Lender.
2.7    Defaulting Lenders.
(a)    Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the Swing Line Lender and each Issuing Lender agree in writing that a Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any cash collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase at par that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans to be held pro rata by the Revolving Lenders in accordance with the Commitments under the Revolving Facility (without giving effect to Section 3.4(d)), whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.
(b)    Defaulting Lender Waterfall. Any payment of principal, interest or other amounts (other than the payment of (i) commitment fees under Section 2.9, (ii) default interest under Section 2.15(d) and (iii) Letter of Credit fees under Section 3.3, which in each case shall be applied pursuant to the provisions of those Sections) received by the Administrative Agent for the account of any Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Section 8 or otherwise) shall be applied by the Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent; second, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender (without duplication of the application of any cash collateral provided by the Borrower pursuant to Section 3.4(d)) to the Swing Line Lender or any Issuing Lender hereunder; third, to be held as security for any L/C Shortfall (without duplication of any cash collateral provided by the Borrower pursuant to Section 3.4(d)) in a cash collateral account to be established by, and under the sole dominion and control of, the Administrative Agent; fourth, as the Borrower may request (so long as no Event of Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement; fifth, if so determined by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a deposit account and released in order to satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement; sixth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders, the Swing Line Lender or the Issuing Lenders as a result of any final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender, the Swing Line Lender or the Issuing Lenders against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, so long as no Event of Default exists, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any final non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and eighth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans, Swing Line Loans or L/C Disbursements in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Loans or Swing Line Loans were made or the related Letters of Credit were issued at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 5.2 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and L/C Disbursements owed to, all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or L/C Disbursements owed to, such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Loans and funded and unfunded

participations in L/C Obligations and Swing Line Loans are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Commitments under the applicable Facility without giving effect to Section 3.4(d). Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to be held as security in a cash collateral account pursuant to this Section 2.7(b) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender and shall satisfy the Borrower’s payment obligation in respect thereof in full, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
2.8    Repayment of Loans.
(a)    The Borrower hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Line Lender, the appropriate Revolving Lender or Term Lender, as the case may be, (i) the then unpaid principal amount of each Revolving Loan of such Revolving Lender made to the Borrower outstanding on the Revolving Termination Date (or on such earlier date on which the Loans become due and payable pursuant to Section 8.1), (ii) the principal amount of each outstanding Term Loan of such Term Lender made to the Borrower in installments according to the applicable amortization schedule set forth in Section 2.3 (or on such earlier date on which the Loans become due and payable pursuant to Section 8.1) and (iii) the then unpaid principal amount of each Swing Line Loan of the Swing Line Lender made to the Borrower outstanding on the earlier of (x) Revolving Termination Date and (y) a date that is no more than seven Business Days after such Swing Line Loan is made; provided that on each date that a Revolving Borrowing is made, the Borrower shall repay all Swing Line Loans then outstanding (or, in the case of each of clauses (x) and (y), on such earlier date on which the Loans become due and payable pursuant to Section 8.1). The Borrower hereby further agrees to pay interest on the unpaid principal amount of the Loans made to the Borrower from time to time outstanding from the date made until payment in full thereof at the rates per annum, and on the dates, set forth in Section 2.15.
(b)    Each Lender shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice an account or accounts evidencing indebtedness of the Borrower to such Lender resulting from each Loan of such Lender from time to time, including the amounts of principal and interest payable and paid to such Lender from time to time under this Agreement.
(c)    The Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Borrower, shall maintain the Register pursuant to Section 10.6(b)(iv), and a subaccount therein for each Lender, in which shall be recorded (i) the amount of each Loan made hereunder and any Note evidencing such Loan, the Type of such Loan and each Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) the amount of any principal, interest and fees, as applicable, due and payable or to become due and payable from the Borrower to each Lender hereunder and (iii) the amount of any sum received by the Administrative Agent hereunder from the Borrower and each Lender’s share thereof.
(d)    The entries made in the Register and the accounts of each Lender maintained pursuant to Section 2.8(c) shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, be presumptively correct absent demonstrable error of the existence and amounts of the obligations of the Borrower therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of the Administrative Agent or any Lender to maintain the Register or any such account, or any error therein, shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Borrower to repay (with applicable interest) the Loans made to the Borrower by such Lender in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
2.9    Commitment Fees, etc.
(a)    The Borrower agrees to pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Lender a commitment fee, in US Dollars, for the period from and including the Closing Date to but excluding the last day of the Revolving Commitment Period, computed at the Applicable Commitment

Any such partial reduction shall be in an amount equal to $1,000,000, or a whole multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof, and shall reduce permanently the Revolving Commitments then in effect. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, the Borrower may rescind any notice of termination under this Section 2.10 if the notice of such termination stated that such notice was conditioned upon the occurrence or non-occurrence of a transaction or the receipt of a replacement of all, or a portion, of the Revolving Commitments outstanding at such time, in which case such notice may be revoked by the Borrower (by written notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified date) if such condition is not satisfied. Any such reduction in the Revolving Commitments below the sum of the principal amount of the Alternative Currency Sublimit and the Swing Line Sublimit shall result in a proportionate reduction (rounded to the next lowest integral multiple of $100,000) in the Alternative Currency Sublimit and the Swing Line Sublimit.
(b)    Upon the incurrence by the Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of any Permitted Refinancing Obligations in respect of Revolving Commitments or Revolving Loans, the Revolving Commitments designated by the Borrower to be terminated in connection therewith shall be automatically permanently reduced by an amount equal to 100% of the aggregate principal amount of commitments under such Permitted Refinancing Obligations and any outstanding Revolving Loans in respect of such terminated Revolving Commitments shall be repaid in full.

73

Execution Version
Loan is prepaid on any day other than the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, the Borrower shall also pay any amounts owing pursuant to Section 2.21. Upon receipt of any such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each relevant Lender thereof. If any such notice is given, the amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein (provided that any such notice may state that such notice is conditioned upon the occurrence or non-occurrence of any transaction or the receipt of proceeds to be used for such payment, in each case specified therein (including the effectiveness of other credit facilities), in which case such notice may be revoked by the Borrower (by written notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date) if such condition is not satisfied), together with (except in the case of Revolving Loans that are ABR Loans) accrued interest to such date on the amount prepaid. Partial prepayments of Term Loans and of Revolving Loans shall be in an aggregate principal amount of (i) $50,000 or a whole multiple of $50,000 in excess thereof (in the case of prepayments of ABR Loans) or (ii) $100,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof (in the case of prepayments of Term Benchmark Loans), and in each case shall be subject to the provisions of Section 2.18.
(b)    The Borrower may, upon notice to the Swing Line Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at any time or from time to time, voluntarily prepay Swing Line Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (A) such notice must be received by the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 1:00 p.m. New York City time on the date of the prepayment, and (ii) any such prepayment shall be in a minimum principal amount of $50,000 (or, if less, the entire principal thereof then outstanding). Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment. If such notice is given by the Borrower, the Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein.
(c)    Any prepayment made on or after the Closing Date pursuant to this Section 2.11 or Section 2.12(a) of the Initial Tranche B Term Loans as a result of a Repricing Transaction shall be accompanied by a prepayment fee, which shall initially be 1% of the aggregate principal amount prepaid and shall decline to 0% on and after the six-month anniversary of the Closing Date.
(d)    Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.11, a Lender may, at its option, and if agreed by the Borrower, in connection with any prepayment of Tranche B Term Loans pursuant to Section 2.11(a), exchange such Lender’s portion of the Tranche B Term Loan to be prepaid for Rollover Indebtedness, in lieu of such Lender’s pro rata portion of such prepayment (and any such Tranche B Term Loans so exchanged shall be deemed repaid for all purposes under the Loan Documents).
(e)    In connection with any optional prepayments by the Borrower of the Term Loans pursuant to this Section 2.11, such prepayments shall be applied on a pro rata basis to the then outstanding Term Loans being prepaid irrespective of whether such outstanding Term Loans are ABR Loans or Term Benchmark Loans.
2.12    Mandatory Prepayments.
(a)    Unless the Required Prepayment Lenders shall otherwise agree, if any Indebtedness (excluding any Indebtedness incurred in accordance with Section 7.2, other than Permitted Refinancing Obligations in respect of Term Loans) shall be incurred by the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary, an amount equal to 100% of the Net Cash Proceeds thereof shall be applied not later than one Business Day after the date of receipt of such Net Cash Proceeds toward the prepayment of the Term Loans as set forth in Section 2.12(d).
(b)    Unless the Required Prepayment Lenders shall otherwise agree, if on any date the Borrower or any Restricted Subsidiary shall for its own account receive Net Cash Proceeds from any Asset

Sale (other than any Asset Sale of the Reston Property) or Recovery Event then, unless a Reinvestment Notice shall be delivered to the Administrative Agent in respect thereof, an amount equal to the Applicable Asset Sale Prepayment Percentage of such Net Cash Proceeds shall be applied not later than 10 Business Days after such date toward the prepayment of the Term Loans as set forth in Section 2.12(d); provided that, notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) on each Reinvestment Prepayment Date, the Term Loans shall be prepaid as set forth in Section 2.12(d) by an amount equal to the Reinvestment Prepayment Amount with respect to the relevant Reinvestment Event and (ii) on the date (the “Trigger Date”) that is six months after any such Reinvestment Prepayment Date, the Term Loans shall be prepaid as set forth in Section 2.12(d) by an amount equal to the Applicable Asset Sale Prepayment Percentage of the portion of any Committed Reinvestment Amount with respect to the relevant Reinvestment Event not actually expended by such Trigger Date.
(c)    Unless the Required Prepayment Lenders shall otherwise agree, if, for any fiscal year of the Borrower commencing with the fiscal year ending September 30, 2022, there shall be Excess Cash Flow, the Borrower shall, on the relevant Excess Cash Flow Application Date, apply an amount equal to (i) the Excess Cash Flow Percentage of such Excess Cash Flow minus (ii) the aggregate amount of all prepayments of Revolving Loans and New Revolving Loans to the extent accompanied by permanent optional reductions of the Revolving Commitments or New Revolving Commitments, as applicable, and all optional prepayments of Term Loans, New Term Loans and Additional Obligations, in each case of this clause (ii), to the extent secured on a pari passu basis with the Term Loans, (x) during such fiscal year (which, in any event, shall not include any designated prepayment pursuant to clause (y) below) and (y) during the period beginning with the day following the last day of such fiscal year and ending on the Excess Cash Flow Application Date and stated by the Borrower to be prepaid pursuant to this Section 2.12(c)(ii)(y), in each case other than to the extent any such prepayment is funded with the proceeds of long-term Indebtedness (other than revolving Indebtedness). Each such prepayment shall be made on a date (an “Excess Cash Flow Application Date”) no later than 10 days after the date on which the financial statements referred to in Section 6.1(a), for the fiscal year with respect to which such prepayment is made, are required to be delivered to the Lenders.
(d)    Amounts to be applied in connection with prepayments pursuant to this Section 2.12 shall be applied to the prepayment of the Term Loans in accordance with Section 2.18(b) until paid in full. In connection with any mandatory prepayments by the Borrower of the Term Loans pursuant to this Section 2.12, such prepayments shall be applied on a pro rata basis to the then outstanding Term Loans being prepaid irrespective of whether such outstanding Term Loans are ABR Loans or Term Benchmark Loans and with respect to prepayments pursuant to Section 2.12(b) such Net Cash Proceeds may be applied, along with such prepayment of Term Loans (to the extent the Borrower elects, or is required by the terms thereof), to purchase, redeem or repay any Pari Passu Debt, pursuant to the agreements governing such other Indebtedness, on not more than a pro rata basis with respect to such prepayments of Term Loans; provided that if no Lender exercises the right to waive a given mandatory prepayment of the Term Loans pursuant to Section 2.12(e), then, with respect to such mandatory prepayment, the amount of such mandatory prepayment shall be applied first to Term Loans that are ABR Loans to the full extent thereof before application to Term Loans that are Term Benchmark Loans in a manner that minimizes the amount of any payments required to be made by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.21. Each prepayment of the Term Loans under this Section 2.12 shall be accompanied by accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the amount prepaid.
(e)    Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Lender holding a Term Loan may elect, by written notice to the Administrative Agent at least one Business Day (or such shorter period as may be established by the Administrative Agent) prior to the required prepayment date, to decline all or any portion of any prepayment of its Term Loan pursuant to Section 2.12(b) or (c), in which case the aggregate amount
75

Execution Version
of the payment that would have been applied to prepay Loans but was so declined may be retained by the Borrower and shall constitute “Declined Proceeds”. .
(f)    If, on any date, the aggregate Revolving Extensions of Credit would exceed the aggregate Revolving Commitments (including as a result of any revaluation of the Dollar Equivalent of the L/C Obligations on any Revaluation Date in accordance with Section 1.4), the Borrower shall promptly prepay Revolving Loans and/or Swing Line Loans in an aggregate principal amount equal to such excess and/or pay to the Administrative Agent an amount of cash and/or Cash Equivalents equal to the aggregate principal amount equal to such excess to be held as security for all obligations of the Borrower to the Issuing Lenders hereunder in a cash collateral account to be established by, and under the sole dominion and control of, the Administrative Agent.
(g)    Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 2.12, a Lender may, at its option, and if agreed by the Borrower, in connection with any prepayment of Tranche B Term Loans pursuant to Section 2.12(a), exchange such Lender’s portion of the Tranche B Term Loan to be prepaid for Rollover Indebtedness, in lieu of such Lender’s pro rata portion of such prepayment (and any such Tranche B Term Loans so exchanged shall be deemed repaid for all purposes under the Loan Documents).
(h)    Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 2.12, to the extent that any or all of the Net Cash Proceeds of any Asset Sale by a Foreign Subsidiary (a “Foreign Asset Sale”) or the Net Cash Proceeds of any Recovery Event from a Foreign Subsidiary (a “Foreign Recovery Event”), in each case giving rise to a prepayment event pursuant Section 2.12(b), or Excess Cash Flow generated by a Foreign Subsidiary (“Foreign Excess Cash Flow”) giving rise to a prepayment event pursuant to Section 2.12(c), are or is prohibited, restricted or delayed by applicable local law or the organizational documents of a Subsidiary of the Borrower (provided that such prohibition or restriction in such organization document was not implemented for the purpose of avoiding a prepayment event) from being repatriated to the United States, (A) the portion of such Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow so affected will not be required to be applied to repay Term Loans at the times provided in this Section 2.12 but may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary so long, but only so long, as the applicable local law or organization document will not permit repatriation to the United States (the Borrower hereby agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause the applicable Foreign Subsidiary to promptly take all actions reasonably required by the applicable local law to permit such repatriation), and once such repatriation of any of such affected Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow is permitted under the applicable local law or organization document, such repatriation will be immediately effected and such repatriated Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow will be promptly (and in any event not later than five Business Days after such repatriation) applied (net of additional taxes payable or reserved against as a result thereof) to the repayment of the Loans pursuant to this Section 2.12 to the extent provided herein and (B) to the extent that the Borrower has determined in good faith that repatriation of any or all of the Net Cash Proceeds of any Foreign Asset Sale or any Foreign Recovery Event or Foreign Excess Cash Flow would have a material adverse tax consequence (taking into account any foreign tax credit or benefit actually realized in connection with such repatriation) with respect to such Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow, the Net Cash Proceeds or Excess Cash Flow so affected may be retained by the applicable Foreign Subsidiary; provided that any Consolidated Net Income in respect of Excess Cash Flow so excluded from any mandatory prepayment pursuant to the operation of this Section 2.12(h) shall not increase the Available Amount.
(i)    The Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrower at any time that the sum of the aggregate outstanding amount of all Revolving Loans and L/C Obligations, in each case, denominated in Alternative Currencies at such time exceeds an amount equal to 105% of the Alternative Currency Sublimit then in effect, and, within five Business Days after receipt of such notice, the Borrower shall prepay Loans or shall deposit in an account with the Administrative Agent, in the name of the Administrative Agent and
76

Execution Version
for the benefit of the Issuing Lenders and the Lenders, an amount in cash equal to the excess of the sum of the aggregate outstanding amount of all Revolving Loans and L/C Obligations, in each case, denominated in Alternative Currencies (including any accrued and unpaid fees thereon) over the amount that is 100% of the Alternative Currency Sublimit then in effect (without reduction of the same) to be held as collateral for the L/C Obligations. Such account shall be administered in accordance with Section 3.4(e) hereof. The Administrative Agent may, at any time and from time to time after the initial deposit of such cash collateral, request that additional cash collateral be provided in order to protect against the results of further exchange rate fluctuations to the extent reasonably determined by the Administrative Agent to be necessary, so long as such changes are generally adopted by the Administrative Agent in similar credit facilities extended to similarly situated Persons.
2.13    Conversion and Continuation Options.
(a)    The Borrower may elect from time to time to convert Term Benchmark Loans made to the Borrower and denominated in US Dollars to ABR Loans by giving the Administrative Agent prior irrevocable written notice of such election no later than 12:00 Noon, New York City time, on the third Business Day preceding the proposed conversion date; provided that if any Term Benchmark Loan is so converted on any day other than the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, the Borrower shall also pay any amounts owing pursuant to Section 2.21. The Borrower may elect from time to time to convert ABR Loans made to the Borrower to Term Benchmark Loans denominated in US Dollars by giving the Administrative Agent prior irrevocable written notice of such election no later than 12:00 Noon, New York City time, on the third Business Day preceding the proposed conversion date (which notice shall specify the length of the initial Interest Period therefor); provided that no ABR Loan under a particular Facility may be converted into a Term Benchmark Loan when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent or the Majority Facility Lenders in respect of such Facility have determined in its or their sole discretion not to permit such conversions. Upon receipt of any such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each relevant Lender thereof.
(b)    Any Term Benchmark Loan may be continued as such by the Borrower giving irrevocable written notice to the Administrative Agent, in accordance with the applicable provisions of the term “Interest Period” set forth in Section 1.1 and no later than 12:00 Noon, New York City time, on the third Business Day preceding the proposed continuation date, of the length of the next Interest Period to be applicable to such Loans; provided that if any Term Benchmark Loan is so continued on any day other than the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, the Borrower shall also pay any amounts owing pursuant to Section 2.21; provided, further, that no Term Benchmark Loan under a particular Facility may be continued as such when any Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent has or the Majority Facility Lenders in respect of such Facility have determined in its or their sole discretion not to permit such continuations and unless repaid, (i) each Term Benchmark Revolving Borrowing denominated in US Dollars shall be converted to an ABR Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (ii) each Term Benchmark Revolving Borrowing denominated in Canadian Dollars shall be converted to a Canadian Prime Borrowing at the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto, and (iii) each Term Benchmark Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency (other than Canadian Dollars) shall bear interest at the Central Bank Rate for the applicable Agreed Currency plus the Applicable Margin; provided that, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that the Central Bank Rate for the applicable Agreed Currency cannot be determined, any outstanding affected Term Benchmark Loans denominated in any Agreed Currency other than Dollars or Canadian Dollars shall either be (A) converted to an ABR Borrowing denominated in Dollars (in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent of such Alternative Currency) at the end of the Interest Period, as applicable, therefor or (B) prepaid at the end of the applicable Interest Period, as applicable, in full; provided that if no election is made by the Borrower by the earlier of
77

Execution Version
(x) the date that is three Business Days after receipt by the Borrower of such notice and (y) the last day of the current Interest Period for the applicable Term Benchmark Loan, the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected clause (A) above; provided further that notwithstanding the foregoing, the Required Revolving Lenders may demand that any or all of the then outstanding Term Benchmark Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency be redenominated into US Dollars in the amount of the Dollar Equivalent thereof, on the last day of the then current Interest Period with respect thereto. If if the Borrower shall fail to give any required notice as described above in this paragraph such Term Benchmark Loans shall be automatically continued as Term Benchmark Loans in their original currency having an Interest Period of one month’s duration on the last day of such then-expiring Interest Period and if such continuation is not permitted pursuant to the preceding proviso, such Term Benchmark Loans shall be automatically converted to ABR Loans on the last day of such then expiring Interest Period. Upon receipt of any such notice the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each relevant Lender thereof.
(c)    If an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing and the Administrative Agent, at the request of the Required Revolving Lenders, so notifies the Borrower, then, so long as an Event of Default is continuing (i) no outstanding Revolving Borrowing may be converted to or continued as a SONIA Borrowing and (ii) unless repaid, (x) each SONIA Borrowing shall bear interest at the Central Bank Rate for Sterling plus the Applicable Margin for SONIA Loans; provided that, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that the Central Bank Rate for Sterling cannot be determined, any outstanding SONIA Loans shall either be (A) converted to an ABR Borrowing denominated in US Dollars (in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent of such Alternative Currency) at the end of the Interest Period or on the Interest Payment Date, as applicable, therefor or (B) prepaid at the end of the applicable Interest Period or on the Interest Payment Date, as applicable, in full; provided that if no election is made by the Borrower by the earlier of (x) the date that is five Business Days after receipt by the Borrower of such notice and (y) the last day of the current Interest Period, the Borrower shall be deemed to have elected clause (A) above.
2.14    Minimum Amounts and Maximum Number of Term Benchmark Tranches. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, all borrowings, conversions, continuations and optional prepayments of Term Benchmark Loans and all selections of Interest Periods shall be in such amounts and be made pursuant to such elections so that (a) after giving effect thereto, the aggregate principal amount of the Term Benchmark Loans comprising each Term Benchmark Tranche shall be equal to a minimum of $100,000 or a whole multiple of $100,000 in excess thereof and (b) no more than 12 Term Benchmark Tranches shall be outstanding at any one time.
2.15    Interest Rates and Payment Dates.
(a)    Each Term Benchmark Loan shall bear interest for each day during each Interest Period with respect thereto at a rate per annum equal to the Adjusted LIBO Rate, Adjusted EURIBOR Rate, Adjusted TIBOR Rate, Adjusted CDOR Rate or Adjusted AUD Rate, as applicable, determined for such day plus the Applicable Margin.

Execution Version
(e)    (i) If all or a portion of the principal amount of any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation shall not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), such overdue amount shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to (x) in the case of the Loans, the rate that would otherwise be applicable thereto pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.15 plus 2% or (y) in the case of Reimbursement Obligations, the rate applicable to ABR Loans under the Revolving Facility plus 2%, and (ii) if all or a portion of any interest payable on any Loan or Reimbursement Obligation or any commitment fee or other amount payable hereunder shall not be paid when due (whether at the stated maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), such overdue amount shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the rate then applicable to ABR Loans under the relevant Facility plus 2% (or, in the case of any such other amounts that do not relate to a particular Facility, the rate then applicable to ABR Loans under the Revolving Facility plus 2%), in each case, with respect to clauses (i) and (ii) above, from the date of such non payment until such amount is paid in full (after as well as before judgment); provided that no amount shall be payable pursuant to this Section 2.15(e) to a Defaulting Lender so long as such Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender; provided further no amounts shall accrue pursuant to this Section 2.15(e) on any overdue Loan, Reimbursement Obligation, commitment fee or other amount payable to a Defaulting Lender so long as such Lender shall be a Defaulting Lender.
(f)    Interest shall be payable by the Borrower in arrears on each Interest Payment Date; provided that interest accruing pursuant to paragraph (d) of this Section 2.15 shall be payable from time to time on demand.
2.16    Computation of Interest and Fees.
(a)    Interest and fees payable pursuant hereto shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year for the actual days elapsed, except that interest on ABR Loans, SONIA Loans and TIBOR Rate Loans shall be calculated on the basis of a 365- (or 366-, as the case may be) day year for the actual days elapsed, or, in the case of interest in respect of Revolving Loans denominated in Alternative Currencies as to which market practice differs from the foregoing, in accordance with such market practice. The Administrative Agent shall as soon as practicable notify the Borrower and the relevant Lenders of each determination of a LIBO Rate, EURIBOR Rate, TIBOR Rate, CDOR Rate, AUD Rate and/or SONIA, as applicable. Any change in the interest rate on a Loan resulting from a change in the ABR or the Statutory Reserve Requirements shall become effective as of the opening of business on the day on which such change becomes effective. The Administrative Agent shall as soon as practicable notify the Borrower and the relevant Lenders of the effective date and the amount of each such change in interest rate.
(b)    Each determination of an interest rate by the Administrative Agent pursuant to any provision of this Agreement shall be presumptively correct in the absence of demonstrable error. The Administrative Agent shall, at the request of the Borrower, deliver to the Borrower a statement showing the quotations used by the Administrative Agent in determining any interest rate pursuant to Section 2.15(a), Section 2.15(b), Section 2.15(c) or Section 2.15(d).
2.17    Alternate Rate of Interest. (a) Subject to clauses (b), (c), (d), (e), (f) and (g) of this Section 2.17:
(i)    the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive absent manifest error) (A) prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Term Benchmark Borrowing, that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBO Rate, the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the Adjusted EURIBOR Rate, the EURIBOR Rate, the Adjusted TIBOR Rate, the TIBOR Rate, the Adjusted CDOR Rate or the Adjusted AUD Rate, as applicable (including because the Relevant Screen Rate is not available or published on a current basis), for
79

Execution Version
the applicable currency and such Interest Period or (B) at any time that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining SONIA or Daily Simple SONIA; or
(ii)    the Administrative Agent is advised by the Required Lenders that (A) prior to the commencement of any Interest Period for a Term Benchmark Borrowing, the Adjusted LIBO Rate, the LIBO Rate, the Adjusted EURIBOR Rate, the EURIBOR Rate, the Adjusted TIBOR Rate, the TIBOR Rate, the Adjusted CDOR Rate or the Adjusted AUD Rate for the applicable currency and such Interest Period will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lender (or Lenders) of making or maintaining their Loans (or its Loan) included in such Borrowing for the applicably currency and such Interest Period or (B) at any time, the Daily Simple SONIA or SONIA, as applicable, for Sterling, will not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders (or Lender) of making or maintaining their Loans (or its Loan) included in such Borrowing;
then the Administrative Agent shall give notice thereof to the Borrower and the Lenders by telephone, telecopy or electronic mail as promptly as practicable thereafter and, until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (A) any notice of an interest rate election that requests the conversion of any Revolving Borrowing to, or continuation of any Revolving Borrowing as, a Term Benchmark Borrowing shall be ineffective, (B) if any Borrowing Notice requests a Term Benchmark Revolving Borrowing in US Dollars, such Borrowing shall be made as an ABR Borrowing, (C) if any Borrowing Notice requests a Term Benchmark Revolving Borrowing in Canadian Dollars, such Borrowing shall be made as a Canadian Prime Rate Borrowing and (D) if any Borrowing Notice requests a Term Benchmark Borrowing or a SONIA Borrowing for the relevant rate above in an Alternative Currency, then such request shall be ineffective; provided that if the circumstances giving rise to such notice affect only one Type of Borrowings, then all other Types of Borrowings shall be permitted. Furthermore, if any Term Benchmark Loan or SONIA Loan in any Alternative Currency is outstanding on the date of the Borrower’s receipt of the notice from the Administrative Agent referred to in this Section 2.17(a) with respect to a Relevant Rate applicable to such Term Benchmark Loan or SONIA Loan, then until the Administrative Agent notifies the Borrower and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such notice no longer exist, (i) if such Term Benchmark Loan is denominated in US Dollars, then on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loan (or the next succeeding Business Day if such day is not a Business Day), such Loan shall be converted by the Administrative Agent to, and shall constitute, an ABR Loan denominated in US Dollars on such day, (ii) if such Term Benchmark Loan is denominated in Canadian Dollars, then on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loan (or the next succeeding Business Day if such day is not a Business Day), such Loan shall be converted by the Administrative Agent to, and shall constitute, Canadian Prime Rate Loan denominated in Canadian Dollars on such day, (iii) if such Term Benchmark Loan is denominated in any Alternative Currency other than Canadian Dollars, then such Loan shall, on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loan (or the next succeeding Business Day if such day is not a Business Day) bear interest at the Central Bank Rate for the applicable Alternative Currency plus the Applicable Margin; provided that, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that the Central Bank Rate for the applicable Alternative Currency cannot be determined, any outstanding affected Term Benchmark Loans denominated in any Alternative Currency shall, at the Borrower’s election prior to such day: (A) be prepaid by the Borrower on such day or (B) solely for the purpose of calculating the interest rate applicable to such Term Benchmark Loan, such Term Benchmark Loan denominated in any Alternative Currency shall be deemed to be a Term Benchmark Loan denominated in US Dollars and shall accrue interest at the same interest rate applicable to Term Benchmark Loans denominated in US Dollars at such time or (iii) any such SONIA Loan shall bear interest at the Central Bank Rate for Sterling plus the Applicable Margin; provided that, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that the Central
80

Execution Version
Bank Rate for Sterling cannot be determined, any outstanding affected SONIA Loans, at the Borrower’s election, shall either (A) be converted into ABR Loans denominated in US Dollars (in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent of such Alternative Currency) immediately or (B) be prepaid in full immediately.
(b)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document (and any Hedge Agreement shall be deemed not to be a “Loan Document” for purposes of this Section 2.17), if a Benchmark Transition Event, an Early Opt-in Election or Other Benchmark Rate Election, as applicable, and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred prior to the Reference Time in respect of any setting of the then-current Benchmark, then (x) if a Benchmark Replacement is determined in accordance with clause (1) or (2) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement” with respect to US Dollars for such Benchmark Replacement Date, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of such Benchmark setting and subsequent Benchmark settings without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document and (y) if a Benchmark Replacement is determined in accordance with clause (3) of the definition of “Benchmark Replacement” with respect to any Alternative Currency for such Benchmark Replacement Date, such Benchmark Replacement will replace such Benchmark for all purposes hereunder and under any Loan Document in respect of any Benchmark setting at or after 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the fifth (5th) Business Day after the date notice of such Benchmark Replacement is provided to the Lenders without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document so long as the Administrative Agent has not received, by such time, written notice of objection to such Benchmark Replacement from Lenders comprising the Required Lenders of each affected Facility.
(c)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document and subject to the proviso below in this paragraph, with respect to a Loan denominated in US Dollars, if a Term SOFR Transition Event and its related Benchmark Replacement Date have occurred prior to the Reference Time in respect of any setting of the then-current Benchmark, then the applicable Benchmark Replacement will replace the then-current Benchmark for all purposes hereunder or under any Loan Document in respect of such Benchmark setting and subsequent Benchmark settings, without any amendment to, or further action or consent of any other party to, this Agreement or any other Loan Document; provided that, this clause (c) shall not be effective unless the Administrative Agent has delivered to the Lenders and the Borrower a Term SOFR Notice. For the avoidance of doubt, the Administrative Agent shall not be required to deliver a Term SOFR Notice after the occurrence of a Term SOFR Transition Event and may do so in its sole discretion.
(d)    In connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement, the Administrative Agent will have the right to make Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes from time to time and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, any amendments implementing such Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes will become effective without any further action or consent of any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document.
(e)    The Administrative Agent will promptly notify the Borrower and the Lenders of (i) any occurrence of a Benchmark Transition Event, an Early Opt-in Election or Other Benchmark Rate Election, as applicable, (ii) the implementation of any Benchmark Replacement, (iii) the effectiveness of any Benchmark Replacement Conforming Changes, (iv) the removal or reinstatement of any tenor of a Benchmark pursuant to clause (f) below and (v) the commencement or conclusion of any Benchmark Unavailability Period. Any determination, decision or election that may be made by the Administrative Agent or, if applicable, any Lender (or group of Lenders) pursuant to this Section 2.17, including any determination with respect to a tenor, rate or adjustment or of the occurrence or non-occurrence of an event, circumstance or date and any decision to take or refrain from taking any action or any selection, will be
81

Execution Version
conclusive and binding absent manifest error and may be made in its or their sole discretion and without consent from any other party to this Agreement or any other Loan Document, except, in each case, as expressly required pursuant to this Section 2.17.
(f)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or in any other Loan Document, at any time (including in connection with the implementation of a Benchmark Replacement), (i) if the then-current Benchmark is a term rate (including Term SOFR, LIBO Rate, EURIBOR Rate, TIBOR Rate, CDOR Rate or AUD Rate) and either (A) any tenor for such Benchmark is not displayed on a screen or other information service that publishes such rate from time to time as selected by the Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion or (B) the regulatory supervisor for the administrator of such Benchmark has provided a public statement or publication of information announcing that any tenor for such Benchmark is or will be no longer representative, then the Administrative Agent may modify the definition of “Interest Period” for any Benchmark settings at or after such time to remove such unavailable or non-representative tenor and (ii) if a tenor that was removed pursuant to clause (i) above either (A) is subsequently displayed on a screen or information service for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement) or (B) is not, or is no longer, subject to an announcement that it is or will no longer be representative for a Benchmark (including a Benchmark Replacement), then the Administrative Agent may modify the definition of “Interest Period” for all Benchmark settings at or after such time to reinstate such previously removed tenor.
(g)    Upon the Borrower’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period, the Borrower may revoke any request for a Term Benchmark Borrowing or SONIA Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Term Benchmark Loans or SONIA Loans to be made, converted or continued during any Benchmark Unavailability Period and, failing that, either (x) the Borrower will be deemed to have converted any request for a Term Benchmark Borrowing denominated in US Dollars into a request for a Borrowing of or conversion to ABR Loans, (y) the Borrower will be deemed to have converted any request for a Term Benchmark Borrowing denominated in Canadian Dollars into a request for a Borrowing of or conversion to Canadian Prime Rate Loans or (z) any Term Benchmark Borrowing or SONIA Borrowing denominated in an Alternative Currency (other than Canadian Dollars) shall be ineffective. During any Benchmark Unavailability Period or at any time that a tenor for the then-current Benchmark is not an Available Tenor, the component of ABR based upon the then-current Benchmark or such tenor for such Benchmark, as applicable, will not be used in any determination of ABR. Furthermore, if any Term Benchmark Loan or SONIA Loan in any Alternative Currency is outstanding on the date of the Borrower’s receipt of notice of the commencement of a Benchmark Unavailability Period with respect to a Relevant Rate applicable to such Term Benchmark Loan or SONIA Loan, then until such time as a Benchmark Replacement for such Alternative Currency is implemented pursuant to this Section 2.17, (i) if such Term Benchmark Loan is denominated in US Dollars, then on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loan (or the next succeeding Business Day if such day is not a Business Day), such Loan shall be converted by the Administrative Agent to, and shall constitute, an ABR Loan denominated in US Dollars on such day, (ii) if such Term Benchmark Loan is denominated in Canadian Dollars, then on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loan (or the next succeeding Business Day if such day is not a Business Day), such Loan shall be converted by the Administrative Agent to, and shall constitute, an Canadian Prime Rate Loan denominated in Canadian Dollars on such day, (iii) if such Term Benchmark Loan is denominated in any Alternative Currency other than Canadian Dollars, then such Loan shall, on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such Loan (or the next succeeding Business Day if such day is not a Business Day) bear interest at the Central Bank Rate for the applicable Alternative Currency plus the Applicable Margin; provided that, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that the Central Bank Rate for the applicable Alternative Currency cannot be determined, any outstanding affected Term Benchmark Loans denominated in any Alternative Currency shall, at the Borrower’s election prior to such day: (A) be prepaid by the Borrower on
82

Execution Version
such day or (B) solely for the purpose of calculating the interest rate applicable to such Term Benchmark Loan, such Term Benchmark Loan denominated in any Alternative Currency shall be deemed to be a Term Benchmark Loan denominated in US Dollars and shall accrue interest at the same interest rate applicable to Term Benchmark Loans denominated in US Dollars at such time or (iv) such SONIA Loan shall bear interest at the Central Bank Rate for the applicable Alternative Currency plus the Applicable Margin; provided that, if the Administrative Agent determines (which determination shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error) that the Central Bank Rate for the applicable Alternative Currency cannot be determined, any outstanding affected SONIA Loans, at the Borrower’s election, shall either (A) be converted into ABR Loans denominated in US Dollars (in an amount equal to the Dollar Equivalent of such Alternative Currency) immediately or (B) be prepaid in full immediately.

Except as expressly otherwise provided herein (including as expressly provided in Sections 2.7, 2.15(c), 2.19, 2.20, 2.21, 2.22, 2.24, 2.26, 2.27, 10.5 and 10.7), each payment (other than prepayments) in respect of principal or interest in respect of any Tranche of Term Loans and each payment in respect of fees payable hereunder shall be applied to the amounts of such obligations owing to the Term Lenders of such Tranche, pro rata according to the respective amounts then due and owing to such Term Lenders.
(b)    Each mandatory prepayment of the Term Loans shall be allocated between the Tranche A Term Facility and the Tranche B Term Facility, pro rata and among the relevant Tranches pro rata, in each case except as affected by the opt-out provision under Section 2.12(e); provided, that at the request of the Borrower, (x) in lieu of such application of the portion allocable to the Tranche A Term Loans on a pro rata basis among all Tranches of Tranche A Term Loans, such prepayment may be applied to any Tranche of Tranche A Term Loans so long as the maturity date of such Tranche of Tranche A Term Loans precedes the maturity date of each other Tranche of Tranche A Term Loans then outstanding or, in the event more than one Tranche of Tranche A Term Loans shall have an identical maturity date that precedes the maturity date of each other Tranche of Tranche A Term Loans then outstanding, to such Tranches on a pro rata basis and (y) in lieu of such application of the portion allocable to the Tranche B Term Loans on a pro rata basis among all Tranches of Tranche B Term Loans, such prepayment may be applied to any Tranche of Tranche B Term Loans so long as the maturity date of such Tranche of Tranche B Term Loans precedes the maturity date of each other Tranche of Tranche B Term Loans then outstanding or, in the event more than one Tranche of Tranche B Term Loans shall have an identical maturity date that precedes the maturity date of each other Tranche of Tranche B Term Loans then outstanding, to such Tranches on a pro rata basis; provided further that in connection with a mandatory prepayment under Section 2.12(a) in connection with the incurrence of Permitted Refinancing Obligations, such prepayment shall be allocated to the Tranches as specified by the Borrower (but to the Loans within such Tranches on a pro rata basis). Each optional prepayment and mandatory prepayment of the Tranche A Term Loans, Tranche B Term Loans or New Term Loans shall be applied to the remaining installments thereof as specified by the Borrower (or in the absence of such specification, in direct order of maturity). Amounts repaid or prepaid on account of the Term Loans may not be reborrowed.

(c)    Except as expressly otherwise provided herein (including as expressly provided in Sections 2.7, 2.10(b), 2.15(c), 2.19, 2.20, 2.21, 2.22, 2.24, 2.26, 10.5 and 10.7), each payment (including prepayments) to be made by the Borrower on account of principal of and interest on the Revolving Loans shall be made pro rata according to the respective outstanding principal amounts of the Revolving Loans then held by the Revolving Lenders other than payments in respect of any differences in the Applicable Margin of Extending Lenders pursuant to an Extension Amendment or Lenders in respect of New Revolving Loans. Each payment in respect of Reimbursement Obligations in respect of any Letter of Credit shall be made to the Issuing Lender that issued such Letter of Credit. Except with respect to principal of and interest on Revolving Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency, the Borrower shall make each payment required to be made by it hereunder (whether of principal, interest, fees or reimbursement of L/C Disbursements, or of amounts payable under Sections 2.19, 2.20 or 2.21, or otherwise) prior to 2:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the date when due, in Same Day Funds, free and clear of any defenses, rights of set-off or counterclaim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all payments by the Borrower hereunder with respect to principal and interest on Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency shall be made to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the respective Lenders to which such payment is owed, at the payment office applicable to the respective currency in such Alternative Currency and in Same Day Funds not later than the Applicable Time specified by the Administrative Agent on the date when due, free and clear of any defenses, rights of set-off or counterclaim. Any amounts received after such time on any date may, in the discretion of the Administrative Agent, be deemed to have been received on the next succeeding Business Day for purposes of calculating interest thereon. All such payments shall be made to the Administrative Agent at the payment office (applicable to the respective currency), except payments to be made directly to any Issuing Lender or the Swing Line Lender as expressly provided herein and except that payments pursuant to Sections 2.19, 2.20 or 2.21 and 10.5 shall be made directly to the Persons entitled thereto. The Administrative Agent shall distribute any such payments received by it for the account of any other Person to the appropriate recipient promptly following receipt thereof. If any payment hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day, and, in the case of any payment accruing interest, interest thereon shall be made payable for the period of such extension. Except as otherwise provided herein, all payments hereunder shall be made in US Dollars. If, for any reason, the Borrower is prohibited by any applicable law, regulation or ruling by a Governmental Authority from making any required payment hereunder in an Alternative Currency, such Borrower shall make such payment in US Dollars in the Dollar Equivalent of the Alternative Currency payment amount.
(d)    All payments (including prepayments) to be made by the Borrower hereunder, whether on account of principal, interest, fees or otherwise, shall be made without setoff, deduction or counterclaim and shall be made prior to 2:00 P.M., New York City time, on the due date thereof to the Administrative Agent, for the account of the relevant Lenders, at the Funding Office, in immediately available funds. Any payment received by the Administrative Agent after 2:00 P.M., New York City time may be considered received on the next Business Day in the Administrative Agent’s sole discretion. The Administrative Agent shall distribute such payments to the relevant Lenders promptly upon receipt in like funds as received. If any payment hereunder (other than payments on the Term Benchmark Loans) becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day. If any payment on a Term Benchmark Loan becomes due and payable on a day other than a Business Day, the maturity thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day unless the result of such extension would be to extend such payment into another calendar month, in which event such payment shall be made on the immediately preceding Business Day. In the case of any extension of any payment of principal pursuant to the preceding two sentences, interest thereon shall be payable at the then applicable rate during such extension.

Execution Version
(e)    Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by any Lender prior to a borrowing that such Lender will not make the amount that would constitute its share of such borrowing available to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender is making such amount available to the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the Borrower a corresponding amount. If such amount is not made available to the Administrative Agent by the required time on the Borrowing Date therefor, such Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent on demand, such amount with interest thereon, at a rate equal to the greater of (i) the Federal Funds Effective Rate and (ii) a rate determined by the Administrative Agent in accordance with banking industry rules on interbank compensation, for the period until such Lender makes such amount immediately available to the Administrative Agent. A certificate of the Administrative Agent submitted to any Lender with respect to any amounts owing under this paragraph shall be presumptively correct in the absence of demonstrable error. If such Lender’s share of such borrowing is not made available to the Administrative Agent by such Lender within three Business Days after such Borrowing Date, the Administrative Agent shall give notice of such fact to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall also be entitled to recover such amount with interest thereon at the rate per annum applicable to ABR Loans under the relevant Facility, on demand, from the Borrower. Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit the rights of the Administrative Agent or the Borrower against any Defaulting Lender.
(f)    Unless the Administrative Agent shall have been notified in writing by the Borrower prior to the date of any payment due to be made by the Borrower hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment to the Administrative Agent, the Administrative Agent may assume that the Borrower is making such payment, and the Administrative Agent may, but shall not be required to, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the relevant Lenders their respective pro rata shares of a corresponding amount. If such payment is not made to the Administrative Agent by the Borrower within three Business Days after such due date, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to recover, on demand, from each relevant Lender to which any amount which was made available pursuant to the preceding sentence, such amount with interest thereon at the rate per annum equal to the daily average Federal Funds Effective Rate. Nothing herein shall be deemed to limit the rights of the Administrative Agent or any Lender against the Borrower.
(g)    Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document, Excluded Swap Obligations with respect to a Loan Party shall not be paid with amounts received from such Loan Party but appropriate adjustments shall be made with respect to payments from other Loan Parties to preserve the allocation to Obligations provided for herein or therein.
2.19    Requirements of Law.
(a)    If the adoption of or any change in any Requirement of Law or in the interpretation or application thereof or compliance by any Lender with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any central bank or other Governmental Authority first made, in each case, subsequent to the Closing Date:
(i)    shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan or similar requirement against assets held by, deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, or shall subject any Lender to any Taxes (other than Excluded Taxes and Non-Excluded Taxes) on advances, loans or other extensions of credit by, or any other acquisition of funds by, any office of such Lender that is not otherwise included in the determination of the LIBO Rate, EURIBOR Rate, TIBOR Rate, CDOR Rate or AUD Rate hereunder; or
(ii)    shall impose on such Lender any other condition not otherwise contemplated hereunder; and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender, by an amount which
85

Execution Version
such Lender reasonably deems to be material, of making, converting into, continuing or maintaining Term Benchmark Loans or issuing or participating in Letters of Credit (in each case hereunder), or to reduce any amount receivable hereunder in respect thereof, then, in any such case, the Borrower shall promptly pay such Lender, in US Dollars, within thirty Business Days after the Borrower’s receipt of a reasonably detailed invoice therefor (showing with reasonable detail the calculations thereof), any additional amounts necessary to compensate such Lender for such increased cost or reduced amount receivable. If any image_0.jpgLender becomes entitled to claim any additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.19, it shall promptly notify the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of the event by reason of which it has become so entitled.
(b)    If any Lender shall have reasonably determined that the adoption of or any change in any Requirement of Law regarding capital adequacy or liquidity requirements or in the interpretation or application thereof or compliance by such Lender or any entity controlling such Lender with any request or directive regarding capital adequacy or liquidity requirements (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority first made, in each case, subsequent to the Closing Date shall have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s or such entity’s capital as a consequence of its obligations hereunder or under or in respect of any Letter of Credit to a level below that which such Lender or such entity could have achieved but for such adoption, change or compliance (taking into consideration such Lender’s or such entity’s policies with respect to capital adequacy or liquidity requirements) by an amount deemed by such Lender to be material, then from time to time, after submission by such Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) of a reasonably detailed written request therefor (consistent with the detail provided by such Lender to similarly situated borrowers), the Borrower shall pay to such Lender, in US Dollars, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such entity for such reduction.
(c)    A certificate prepared in good faith as to any additional amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2.19 submitted by any Lender to the Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) shall be presumptively correct in the absence of demonstrable error. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.19, the Borrower shall not be required to compensate a Lender pursuant to this Section 2.19 for any amounts incurred more than 180 days prior to the date that such Lender notifies the Borrower of such Lender’s intention to claim compensation therefor; provided that if the circumstances giving rise to such claim have a retroactive effect, then such 180-day period shall be extended to include the period of such retroactive effect. The obligations of the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.19 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Obligations. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower shall not be obligated to make payment to any Lender with respect to penalties, interest and expenses if written demand therefore was not made by such Lender within 180 days from the date on which such Lender makes payment for such penalties, interest and expenses.
(d)    Notwithstanding anything in this Section 2.19 to the contrary, solely for purposes of this Section 2.19, (i) the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and all requests, rules, regulations, guidelines and directives promulgated thereunder or issued in connection therewith and (ii) all requests, rules, guidelines, requirements and directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or the United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, shall, in each case, be deemed to have been enacted, adopted or issued, as applicable, subsequent to the Closing Date.
(e)    For purposes of this Section 2.19, the term “Lender” shall include any Issuing Lender.
2.20    Taxes.
86

Execution Version
(a)    Except as required by law, all payments made by the Borrower or any Loan Party under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents to the Administrative Agent or any Lender under this Agreement shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any Taxes. If the Borrower, a Guarantor or any other applicable withholding agent is required by law (as determined in the good faith discretion of the Borrower, Guarantor or the applicable withholding agent) to withhold or deduct any Taxes from or in respect of any amount paid or payable by the Borrower or applicable Guarantor under any Loan Document to any Agent or any Lender, then (i) the Borrower, Guarantor or the applicable withholding agent shall be entitled to make such deduction or withholding and shall timely pay the full amount deducted or withheld to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, and (ii) if such Taxes are Non-Excluded Taxes, the amounts so payable to the Administrative Agent or such Lender shall be increased to the extent necessary so the Administrative Agent or such Lender receives (after deduction or withholding of all Non-Excluded Taxes including Non-Excluded Taxes attributable to amounts payable under this Section 2.20(a)) an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such withholdings or deductions been made.
(b)    In addition, the Borrower or any Loan Party under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall timely pay to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law, or at the option of the Administrative Agent, timely reimburse it for, Other Taxes.
(c)    Whenever any Non-Excluded Taxes are paid by the Borrower and any Loan Party under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, as promptly as practicable thereafter the Borrower shall send to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Administrative Agent or Lender, as the case may be, a certified copy of an original official receipt received by the Borrower showing payment thereof if such receipt is obtainable, or, if not, such other evidence of payment as may reasonably be required by the Administrative Agent or such Lender.
(d)    The Borrower or any Loan Party under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents shall indemnify the Administrative Agent or any Lender, within ten days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Non-Excluded Taxes (including Non-Excluded Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) payable or paid by the Administrative Agent or such Lender or required to be withheld or deducted from a payment to the Administrative Agent or such Lender and any reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Non-Excluded Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to the Borrower or any Loan Party by a Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), or by the Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(e)    Each Lender shall severally indemnify the Administrative Agent, within ten days after demand therefor, for (i) any Non-Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender (but only to the extent that the Borrower or any Loan Party has not already indemnified the Administrative Agent for such Non-Excluded Taxes and without limiting the obligation of the Borrower or any Loan Parties to do so), (ii) any Taxes attributable to such Lender’s failure to comply with the provisions of Section 10.6(c)(3) relating to the maintenance of a Participant Register and (iii) any Excluded Taxes attributable to such Lender, in each case, that are payable or paid by the 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 Governmental Authority. A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to any Lender by the Administrative Agent shall be conclusive absent manifest error. Each Lender hereby authorizes the Administrative Agent to set off and apply any and all amounts at any time owing to such Lender under any Loan Document or otherwise payable by the
87

Execution Version
Administrative Agent to the Lender from any other source against any amount due to the Administrative Agent under this paragraph (e).
(f)    Each Lender (and, in the case of a pass-through entity, each of its beneficial owners) that is not a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code) (a “Non-US Lender”) shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (or, in the case of a Participant, to the Borrower and to the Lender from which the related participation shall have been purchased) (i) two executed, accurate and complete copies of IRS Form W-8BEN or successor form certifying that it is entitled to benefits under an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party, (ii) two executed, accurate and complete copies of IRS Form W-8ECI or successor form, (iii) in the case of a Non-US Lender claiming exemption from United States federal withholding tax under Section 871(h) or 881(c) of the Code with respect to payments of “portfolio interest”, a statement substantially in the form of Exhibit N-1, certifying that such Foreign Lender is not (A) a bank described in Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, (B) a 10-percent shareholder of the Borrower described in Section 871(h)(3)(B) of the Code, or (C) a controlled foreign corporation related to the Borrower as described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code, and that no payments in connection with any Loan Document are effectively connected with such Lender’s conduct of a U.S. trade or business (a “U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate”); and two executed, accurate and complete copies of IRS Form W-8BEN, or any subsequent versions or successors to such forms, in each case properly completed and duly executed by such Non-US Lender claiming complete exemption from, or a reduced rate of, United States federal withholding tax on all payments by the Borrower or any Loan Party under this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, (iv) to the extent a Non-US Lender is not the beneficial owner for U.S. federal income tax purposes, IRS Form W-8IMY (or any successor forms) of the Lender, accompanied by, and to the extent applicable, an IRS Form W-8BEN or IRS Form W-8ECI, a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit N-2 or Exhibit N-3 (provided, that if the Lender is a partnership (and not a participating Lender) and one or more direct or indirect partners are claiming the portfolio interest exemption, the Lender may provide a U.S. Tax Compliance Certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit N-4 on behalf of such direct or indirect partner(s)), IRS Form W-9, IRS Form W-8BEN, IRS Form W-8IMY (or other successor forms) and any other required supporting information from each beneficial owner; or (v) any other form prescribed by applicable requirements of U.S. federal income tax law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in U.S. federal withholding tax on any payments to such Lender under the Loan Documents, duly completed together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable Requirement of Law to permit the Borrower and the Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made. Such forms shall be delivered by each Non-US Lender on or before the date it becomes a party to this Agreement (or, in the case of any Participant, on or before the date such Participant purchases the related participation). In addition, each Non-US Lender shall deliver such forms promptly upon the obsolescence or invalidity of any form previously delivered by such Non-US Lender and from time to time upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent. Each Non-US Lender shall (i) promptly notify the Borrower at any time it determines that it is no longer in a position to provide any previously delivered certificate to the Borrower (or any other form of certification adopted by the United States taxing authorities for such purpose) and (ii) take such steps as shall not be materially disadvantageous to it, in its reasonable judgment, and as may be reasonably necessary (including the re-designation of its lending office pursuant to Section 2.23) to avoid any requirement of applicable laws of any such jurisdiction that the Borrower or any Loan Party make any deduction or withholding for taxes from amounts payable to such Lender. Notwithstanding any other provision of this paragraph, a Non-US Lender shall not be required to deliver any form pursuant to this paragraph that such Non-US Lender is not legally able to deliver.
(g)    Each Lender (and, in the case of a Lender that is a non-United States pass-through entity, each of its beneficial owners) that is a United States person (as such term is defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code) (a “US Lender”) shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent two
88

Execution Version
executed, accurate and complete copies of IRS Form W-9, or any subsequent versions or successors to such form and certify that such lender is not subject to backup withholding. Such forms shall be delivered by each US Lender on or before the date it becomes a party to this Agreement. In addition, each US Lender shall deliver such forms promptly upon the obsolescence or invalidity of any form previously delivered by such US Lender and from time to time upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent. Each US Lender shall promptly notify the Borrower at any time it determines that it is no longer in a position to provide any previously delivered certifications to the Borrower (or any other form of certification adopted by the United States taxing authorities for such purpose).
(h)    If the Administrative Agent or any Lender determines, in its sole discretion exercised in good faith, that it has received a refund of any Non-Excluded Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the Borrower or any Loan Party or with respect to which the Borrower or any Loan Party has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section 2.20, it shall promptly pay over such refund to the Borrower (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the Borrower or any Loan Party under this Section 2.20 with respect to the Non-Excluded Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or such Lender and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that the Borrower, upon the request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to the Borrower (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority; provided, further, that the Borrower shall not be required to repay to the Administrative Agent or the Lender an amount in excess of the amount paid over by such party to the Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.20. This paragraph shall not be construed to require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes which it deems confidential) to the Borrower or any other Person. In no event will the Administrative Agent or any Lender be required to pay any amount to the Borrower the payment of which would place the Administrative Agent or such Lender in a less favorable net after-tax position than the Administrative Agent or such Lender would have been in if the additional amounts giving rise to such refund of any Non-Excluded Taxes had never been paid. The agreements in this Section 2.20 shall survive the termination of this Agreement and the payment of the Obligations.
(i)    If a payment made to a Lender under any Loan Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding Tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrower and Administrative Agent at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrower or Administrative Agent such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrower and Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA and to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. Solely for purposes of this subsection (i), “FATCA” shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
(j)    For purposes of this Section 2.20, the term “Lender” shall include any Issuing Lender and the term “applicable law” includes FATCA.
(k)    For purposes of this Agreement, any reference to IRS Form W-8-BEN shall be deemed to include a reference to IRS Form W-8-BEN-E.
2.21    Indemnity. Other than with respect to Taxes, which shall be governed solely by Section 2.20,

Execution Version
(a)    with respect to Loans that are not SONIA Loans, in the event of (i) the payment of any principal of any Term Benchmark Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period applicable thereto (including as a result of an Event of Default or an optional or mandatory prepayment of Loans), (ii) the conversion of any Term Benchmark Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, (iii) the failure to borrow, convert, continue or prepay any Term Benchmark Loan on the date specified in any notice delivered pursuant hereto (regardless of whether such notice may be revoked under Section 2.11(a) and is revoked in accordance therewith), (iv) the assignment of any Term Benchmark Loan other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto as a result of a request by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.24 or (v) the failure by the Borrower to make any payment of any Loan or drawing under any Letter of Credit (or interest due thereon) denominated in an Alternative Currency on its scheduled due date or any payment thereof in a different currency, then, in any such event, the Borrower shall compensate each Lender for the loss, cost and expense (other than loss of Applicable Margin) attributable to such event. In the case of a Term Benchmark Loan, such loss, cost or expense to any Lender shall be deemed to include an amount determined by such Lender to be the excess, if any, of (x) the amount of i
