(c) Unless Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of such Borrowing, Administrative Agent may assume that such Lender has made such share available to Administrative Agent on the date of such Borrowing in accordance with this Section 2.3 and Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, but shall not be obligated to, make available to the applicable Borrower on such date a corresponding amount on behalf of such Lender.  If and to the extent that such Lender shall not have made such share available to Administrative Agent, such Lender agrees to repay to Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is made available to the applicable Borrower until the date such amount is repaid to Administrative Agent, at the rate of interest applicable to such Borrowing hereunder.  If such Lender shall repay to Administrative Agent such corresponding amount, such amount repaid shall constitute such Lender’s Loan included in such Borrowing for purposes of this Agreement.  If such Lender shall not pay to Administrative Agent such corresponding amount after reasonable attempts are made by Administrative Agent to collect such amounts from such Lender, the applicable Borrower agrees to repay to Administrative Agent within one Business Day of the demand such corresponding amount together with interest thereon at the interest rate applicable to the relevant Borrowing, for each day from the date such amount is made available to such Borrower until the date such amount is repaid to Administrative Agent.  Nothing contained in this Section 2.3(c) shall be deemed to reduce the Commitment of any Lender or in any way affect the rights of any Borrower with respect to any Defaulting Lender or Administrative Agent.  The failure of any Lender to make available to Administrative Agent such Lender’s share of any Borrowing in accordance with Section 2.3(b) hereof shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligations to fund its Commitment, in accordance with the provisions hereof.

(d) Subject to the provisions hereof, Administrative Agent shall make available each Borrowing to the applicable Borrower in Yen immediately available in accordance with, and on the date set forth in, the applicable Notice of Borrowing.

(a) The Loans of each Borrower shall be evidenced by a single Note made by the applicable Borrower payable to Administrative Agent, on behalf of the Lenders for the account of their respective Lending Offices.

(b) Notwithstanding Section 2.4(a) above, each Lender may, by notice to any Borrower and Administrative Agent, request that its Loans to any Borrower be evidenced by a separate Note payable such Lender for the account of its Lending Office, in which event the Note made by such Borrower pursuant to Section 2.4(a) above shall not include or evidence the Loans made by such Lender to such Borrower.  Each such Note shall be modified to reflect the fact that it

32

 


 

evidences solely Loans made by the applicable Lender.  Any additional costs incurred by Administrative Agent, such Borrower or the Lenders in connection with preparing such a Note shall be at the sole cost and expense of the Lender requesting such Note.  In the event any Loans evidenced by such a Note are paid in full prior to the Maturity Date, any such Lender shall return such Note to the applicable Borrower.

(c) Upon receipt of the Note issued pursuant to Section 3.1(a), Administrative Agent shall forward a copy of such Note to each Lender.  Administrative Agent shall record on such Note or in its records the date, amount, type and maturity of each Loan made by each Lender and the date and amount of each payment of principal made by the applicable Borrower with respect thereto, and may, if Administrative Agent so elects in connection with any transfer or enforcement of such Note, endorse on the appropriate schedule appropriate notations to evidence the foregoing information with respect to each such Loan then outstanding; provided that the failure of Administrative Agent to make any such recordation or endorsement shall not affect the obligations of any Borrower hereunder or under any Notes.  The Borrower hereby irrevocably authorizes Administrative Agent so to endorse such Note and to attach to and make a part of such Note a continuation of any such schedule as and when required.

(d) Upon receipt of any Lender’s Note pursuant to Section 2.4(b) above, Administrative Agent shall forward such Note to such Lender.  Each Lender shall record the date, amount, type and maturity of each Loan made by it and the date and amount of each payment of principal made by the applicable Borrower with respect thereto, and may, if such Lender so elects in connection with any transfer or enforcement of its Note, endorse on the appropriate schedule appropriate notations to evidence the foregoing information with respect to each such Loan then outstanding; provided that the failure of any Lender to make any such recordation or endorsement shall not affect the obligations of any Borrower hereunder or under the Note.  Each Lender is hereby irrevocably authorized by each Borrower so to endorse its Note and to attach to and make a part of its Note a continuation of any such schedule as and when required.

(e) The Committed Loans shall mature, and the principal amount thereof shall be due and payable, on the Maturity Date.

Section 2.5 Method of Electing Interest Rates.  (a)  The Loans included in each Borrowing shall bear interest initially at the type of rate specified by the applicable Borrower in the applicable Notice of Borrowing.  Thereafter, each Borrower may from time to time elect to change or continue the type of interest rate borne by each Group of Loans (subject in each case to the provisions of Article VIII) made to such Borrower, as follows:

(i) if such Loans are Base Rate Loans, the applicable Borrower may elect to convert all or any portion of such Loans to Yen LIBOR Loans as of any Business Day;

(ii) if such Loans are Yen LIBOR Loans, the applicable Borrower may elect to convert all or any portion of such Loans to Base Rate Loans and/or elect to continue all or any portion of such Loans as Yen LIBOR Loans for an additional Interest Period or additional Interest Periods, in each case effective on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable to such Loans, or on such other date designated by the

33

 


 

applicable Borrower in the Notice of Interest Rate Election, provided such Borrower shall pay any losses pursuant to Section 2.11.

Each such election shall be made by delivering a notice (a “Notice of Interest Rate Election”) to Administrative Agent at least four Business Days prior to, but excluding, the effective date of the conversion or continuation selected in such notice.

A Notice of Interest Rate Election may, if it so specifies, apply to only a portion of the aggregate principal amount of the relevant Group of Loans; provided that (i) such portion is allocated ratably among the Loans comprising such Group of Loans, (ii) the portion to which such Notice of Interest Rate Election applies, and the remaining portion to which it does not apply, are JPY 30,000,000 or a higher integral multiple of JPY 1,000,000, and (iii) no Committed Loan may be continued as, or converted into, a Yen LIBOR Loan when any Guarantor Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or when any Borrower Event of Default has occurred and is continuing with respect to the Borrower delivering such Notice of Interest Rate Election; provided, further, that if any Lender has previously advised Administrative Agent and Borrower that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan and such notice has not been withdrawn, the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have continued any Committed Loan that is a Yen LIBOR Loan as a Yen LIBOR Loan and, unless the applicable Borrower timely elects an Interest Period, shall be deemed to have elected an Interest Period of seven days (provided if such Interest Period is not available from all Lenders, such Borrower shall be deemed to have elected an Interest Period of one month).

(b) Each Notice of Interest Rate Election shall specify:

(i) the Group of Loans (or portion thereof) to which such notice applies;

(ii) the date on which the conversion or continuation selected in such notice is to be effective, which shall comply with the applicable clause of subsection (a) above;

(iii) if the Loans comprising such Group of Loans are to be converted, the new type of Loans and, if such new Loans are Yen LIBOR Loans, the duration of the initial Interest Period applicable thereto; and

(iv) if such Loans are to be continued as Yen LIBOR Loans for an additional Interest Period, the duration of such additional Interest Period.

Each Interest Period specified in a Notice of Interest Rate Election shall comply with the provisions of the definition of Interest Period.

(c) Upon receipt of a Notice of Interest Rate Election from any Borrower pursuant to subsection (a) above, Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender the same day as it receives such Notice of Interest Rate Election of the contents thereof, the interest rates determined pursuant thereto and the Interest Periods (if different from those requested by such Borrower) and such notice shall not thereafter be revocable by such Borrower.  If the applicable Borrower fails to deliver a timely Notice of Interest Rate Election to Administrative Agent for any Yen LIBOR Group of Loans, such Loans shall be converted into Base Rate Loans, and such

34

 


 

Borrower shall be deemed to have made a Base Rate Borrowing in the amount of such Yen LIBOR Group of Loans (for which such Borrower shall be deemed to have timely given a Notice of Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.2 and all other conditions to such Borrowing shall be deemed waived or satisfied) and the proceeds of such Borrowing shall be deemed to have been used to repay such Yen LIBOR Group of Loans on the last day of the then current Interest Period applicable thereto.

(d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, if any Lender has previously advised Administrative Agent and Borrower that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan and until such notice is withdrawn, (i) the Base Rate Loan option shall not be available and the Borrowers shall only have the option to make Yen LIBOR Borrowings, (ii) with respect to any Borrowing made (or deemed made) during such period, the Borrowers shall be deemed to have elected the Yen LIBOR Borrowing option and, unless the Borrower makes a timely election otherwise, shall be deemed to have elected an Interest Period of seven days (provided if such Interest Period is not available from all Lenders, such Borrower shall be deemed to have elected an Interest Period of one month) and (iii) if the Interest Period with respect to any Yen LIBOR Loans shall end during such period, Borrower shall be deemed to have elected to continue such Yen LIBOR Loans as Yen LIBOR Loans and, unless the Borrower makes a timely election otherwise, such Borrower shall be deemed to have elected an Interest Period of seven days (provided if such Interest Period is not available from all Lenders, such Borrower shall be deemed to have elected an Interest Period of one month).

(e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Borrower may have more than ten Yen LIBOR Groups of Loans outstanding at any one time.

Section 2.6 Interest Rates.

(a) Each Base Rate Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for each day from the date such Loan is made until the date it is repaid or converted into a Yen LIBOR Loan pursuant to Section 2.5, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin for Base Rate Loans for such day.

(b) Each Yen LIBOR Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof, for each day during each Interest Period applicable thereto, at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Applicable Margin for Yen LIBOR Loans plus Yen LIBOR for such Interest Period.

(c) (i) At any time and so long as an Event of Default pursuant to Section 6.3(a) exists with respect to a Borrower, all Obligations owing by such Borrower that are not paid when due shall bear interest at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws, to the otherwise applicable rate hereunder plus 2.000%, (ii) upon the written request of the Majority Lenders at any time and so long as any other Borrower Event of Default exists with respect to a Borrower, such Borrower shall pay interest on the principal amount of all Obligations owing by such Borrower, at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws, to the otherwise applicable rate hereunder plus 2.000%, and (iii) upon the written request of the Majority Lenders at any time and so long as any Guarantor Event of Default exists, all Obligations owing hereunder by any

35

 


 

Loan Party shall bear interest at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws, to the otherwise applicable rate hereunder plus 2.000%.

(d) Administrative Agent shall determine each interest rate applicable to the Loans hereunder.  Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice to the applicable Borrower and the Lenders of each rate of interest so determined, and its determination thereof shall be conclusive in the absence of demonstrable error.

(e) Interest on all Loans bearing interest at the Base Rate shall be payable in arrears on the first Business Day of each calendar month. Interest on all Yen LIBOR Loans shall be payable on the last Business Day of each applicable Interest Period, but no less frequently than every three months determined on the basis of the first day of the Interest Period applicable to the Loan in question.

(f) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any Loan Document, the interest paid or agreed to be paid (including any fees paid to Administrative Agent or any Lender that are deemed to be interest under any applicable Law) under the Loan Documents shall not exceed the maximum rate of non-usurious interest permitted by applicable Law (the “Maximum Rate”).  If Administrative Agent or any Lender shall receive interest (including any fees paid to Administrative Agent or a Lender that are deemed to be interest under any applicable Law) in an amount that exceeds the Maximum Rate, the excess interest shall be applied to the principal of the Loans or, if it exceeds such unpaid principal, refunded to the applicable Loan Parties.   In determining whether the interest (including any fees paid to Administrative Agent or a Lender that are deemed to be interest under any applicable Law) contracted for, charged or received by Administrative Agent or a Lender exceeds the Maximum Rate, Administrative Agent or such Lender may, to the extent permitted by applicable Laws, (a) characterize any payment that is not principal as an expense, fee or premium rather than interest, (b) exclude voluntary prepayments and the effects thereof, and (c) amortize, prorate, allocate, and spread in equal or unequal parts the total amount of interest throughout the contemplated term of the Obligations hereunder.

Section 2.7 Fees.

(a) Facility Fee.  For the period beginning on the date hereof until the date the Obligations are paid in full and this Agreement is terminated (the “Facility Fee Period”), Prologis, or any other Borrower that falls within any of the persons set forth in Article 2, Paragraph 1 of the Act on Specified Commitment Line Contract (tokutei yushiwaku keiyaku ni kansuru houritsu) of Japan (Law No. 4 of 1999) (each an “Eligible Borrower”), shall pay to Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders a facility fee equal to the Applicable Margin for facility fees times the actual daily amount of the aggregate Commitments, irrespective of usage. The facility fee shall be payable in arrears on each January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 during the Facility Fee Period. The facility fee shall be payable in Yen. An Eligible Borrower not located in Japan may pay the facility fee through a Borrower that has an office in Japan after giving notice to Administrative Agent of the designation of that Borrower as paying agent. Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Agreement, no Loan Party shall be required to pay a facility fee to any Lender for any day on which such Lender is a Defaulting Lender.

36

 


 

(b) Letter of Credit Fee.  During the Term and thereafter for so long as any Letter of Credit shall be outstanding, each Borrower shall pay to Administrative Agent, for the account of the Lenders in proportion to their interests in respect of issued and undrawn Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower, a fee (a “Letter of Credit Fee”) at a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin on the daily average of such issued and undrawn Letters of Credit, which fee shall be payable, in arrears, on each January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 during the Term and for so long as any Letter of Credit shall be outstanding; provided that (i) any time and so long as an Event of Default pursuant to Section 6.3(a) (with respect to such Borrower) or Section 6.1(a) exists; and (ii) upon the written request of the Majority Lenders at any time and so long as any other Borrower Event of Default (with respect to such Borrower) or Guarantor Event of Default exists, the Letter of Credit Fee for such Borrower shall be increased to a rate per annum equal to the Applicable Margin plus 2.000%.  The Letter of Credit Fee shall be payable in Yen. Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, no Letter of Credit Fee shall be payable on the available amount of any Letter of Credit to the extent that such Letter of Credit has been cash collateralized as a result of the provisions of Section 6.7 or 9.15(b) hereof.  Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of this Agreement, no Loan Party shall be required to pay a Letter of Credit Fee to any Lender for any day on which such Lender is a Defaulting Lender

(c) Fronting Lender Fee.  Each Borrower shall pay each Fronting Lender, for its own account, a fee (a “Fronting Lender Fee”) for each Letter of Credit issued by such Fronting Lender for the account of such Borrower equal to the greater of (A) 0.125% per annum of the undrawn amount of such Letter of Credit and (B) the product of (i) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days such Letter of Credit was issued and outstanding during the most recently ended calendar quarter (or such other period for which the Fronting Lender Fee is being calculated) and the denominator of which is 365 (or, if applicable, 366) and (ii) JPY 25,000, which Fronting Lender Fee shall be in addition to, and not in lieu of, the Letter of Credit Fee.  The Fronting Lender Fee shall be payable in arrears on each January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 during the Term in Yen.

(d) Fees Non-Refundable.  All fees set forth in this Section 2.7 shall be deemed to have been earned on the date payment is due in accordance with the provisions hereof and shall be non-refundable.  The obligation of any Loan Party to pay such fees in accordance with the provisions hereof shall be binding upon such Loan Party and shall inure to the benefit of Administrative Agent and the Lenders regardless of whether any Loans are actually made.

Section 2.8 Maturity Date.  The term (the “Term”) of the Commitments (and each Lender’s obligations to make Loans and to participate in Letters of Credit hereunder) shall terminate and expire on the Maturity Date.  Upon the date of the termination of the Term, any Loans then outstanding (together with accrued interest thereon and all other Obligations) shall be due and payable on such date.

Section 2.9 Optional Prepayments.

(a) Each Borrower may, upon at least two Business Days’ notice to Administrative Agent, prepay any Base Rate Loans made to such Borrower, in whole or from time to time in part, in amounts aggregating for all Base Rate Loans of such Borrower being prepaid at the same

37

 


 

time JPY 1,000,000 or more, by paying the principal amount to be prepaid together with accrued interest thereon to the date of prepayment.  Each such optional prepayment shall be applied to prepay ratably the Loans of the several Lenders included in such Group of Loans or Borrowing.

(b) Each Borrower may, upon at least four Business Days’ notice to Administrative Agent, pay all or any portion of any Yen LIBOR Loan made to such Borrower as of the last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto in amounts aggregating for all Yen LIBOR Loans of such Borrower being prepaid at the same time JPY 75,000,000 or more.  Except as provided in Article VIII and except with respect to any Yen LIBOR Loan which has been converted to a Base Rate Loan pursuant to Section 8.2, 8.3 or 8.5 hereof, a Borrower may not prepay all or any portion of the principal amount of any Yen LIBOR Loan made to such Borrower prior to the end of the Interest Period applicable thereto unless such Borrower shall also pay any applicable expenses pursuant to Section 2.11.  Each such optional prepayment shall be in the amounts set forth in Section 2.9(a) above and shall be applied to prepay ratably the Loans of the Lenders included in any Yen LIBOR Group of Loans, except that any Yen LIBOR Loan which has been converted to a Base Rate Loan pursuant to Section 8.2, 8.3 or 8.5 hereof may be prepaid without ratable payment of the other Loans in such Group of Loans which have not been so converted.

(c) Any Borrower may at any time return any undrawn Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower to the Fronting Lender in whole, but not in part, and the Fronting Lender within a reasonable period of time shall give Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders notice of such return.

(d) Prologis may at any time and from time to time cancel all or any part of the Commitments by the delivery to Administrative Agent of a notice of cancellation within the applicable time periods set forth in Sections 2.9(a) and (b) if there are Loans then outstanding or, if there are no Loans outstanding at such time as to which the Commitments with respect thereto are being canceled, upon at least four Business Days’ notice to Administrative Agent, whereupon, in either event, all or such portion of the Commitments, as applicable, shall terminate as to the applicable Lenders, pro rata on the date set forth in such notice of cancellation, and, if there are any Loans then outstanding, the applicable Borrowers shall prepay all or such portion of Loans outstanding on such date in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.9(a) and (b).  In no event shall Prologis be permitted to cancel Commitments for which a Letter of Credit has been issued and is outstanding unless the applicable Borrower for whose account such Letter of Credit was issued returns (or causes to be returned) such Letter of Credit to the Fronting Lender.  Prologis shall be permitted to designate in its notice of cancellation which Loans, if any, are to be prepaid.

(e) Any amounts so prepaid pursuant to Section 2.9(a) or (b) may be reborrowed.  In the event Prologis elects to cancel all or any portion of the Commitments pursuant to Section 2.9(d) hereof, such amounts may not be reborrowed.

Section 2.10 General Provisions as to Payments.

(a) The obligations of each Borrower hereunder shall be several and not joint.  Each Borrower shall make each payment of the principal of and interest on its Loans and fees hereunder, by initiating a wire transfer not later than 1:00 P.M. on the date when due in Yen

38

 


 

immediately available in Tokyo, Japan to Administrative Agent at its address referred to in Section 9.1, and each Borrower shall deliver to Administrative Agent evidence of such wire as soon as possible thereafter on the date when due.  Administrative Agent will promptly (and in any event within one Business Day after receipt thereof) distribute to each Lender its ratable share of each such payment received by Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders.  If and to the extent that Administrative Agent shall receive any such payment for the account of the Lenders on or before 11:00 A.M. on any Business Day, and Administrative Agent shall not have distributed to any Lender its applicable share of such payment on such day, Administrative Agent shall distribute such amount to such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount should have been distributed to such Lender until the date Administrative Agent distributes such amount to such Lender, at the Prime Rate.  Whenever any payment of principal of, or interest on the Committed Loans or of fees or any other amount due hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, the date for payment thereof shall be extended to the next succeeding Business Day unless such next succeeding Business Day falls in another calendar month, in which case the date for payment thereof shall be the next preceding Business Day.  If the date for any payment of principal is extended by operation of law or otherwise, interest thereon shall be payable for such extended time.

(b) Unless Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the applicable Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Lenders hereunder that such Borrower will not make such payment in full, Administrative Agent may assume that such Borrower has made such payment in full to Administrative Agent on such date and Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be distributed to each Lender on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lender.  If and to the extent that such Borrower shall not have so made such payment, each Lender shall repay to Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Lender until the date such Lender repays such amount to Administrative Agent, at the Prime Rate.

(c) If any Lender shall fail to make any payment required to be made by it pursuant to Section 2.3, 2.10, 2.14 or 9.4, then Administrative Agent, notwithstanding any contrary provision hereof, shall (i) apply any amounts thereafter received by Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender for the benefit of Administrative Agent or the Fronting Lender to satisfy such Lender’s obligations to it under such Section until all such unsatisfied obligations are fully paid, and/or (ii) hold any such amounts in a segregated account as cash collateral for, and application to, any future funding obligations of such Lender under any such Section, in the case of each of clauses (i) and (ii) above, in any order as determined by Administrative Agent in its reasonable discretion.

Section 2.11 Funding Losses.  Each Borrower agrees that it will, from time to time, compensate each Lender for and hold each Lender harmless from any loss, cost or expense incurred by such Lender as a result of:

(i) any continuation, conversion, payment or prepayment of any Yen LIBOR Loan of such Lender to such Borrower on a day other than the last day of the Interest Period for such Yen LIBOR Loan (whether voluntary, mandatory, automatic, by reason of acceleration, or otherwise);

39

 


 

(ii) any failure by such Borrower (for a reason other than the failure of such Lender to make a Loan) to prepay, borrow, continue or convert any Yen LIBOR Loan of (or to be made by) such Lender to such Borrower on the date or in the amount notified by such Borrower; or

(iii) any assignment of a Yen LIBOR Loan of such Lender to such Borrower on a day other than the last day of the Interest Period therefor as a result of a request by Prologis pursuant to Section 9.5(d);

including any loss or expense arising from the liquidation or reemployment of funds obtained by it to maintain such Loans or from fees payable to terminate the deposits from which such funds were obtained (but in each case excluding any loss of anticipated profits).

For purposes of calculating amounts payable by a Borrower to a Lender under this Section 2.11, (A) each Lender shall be deemed to have funded each Yen LIBOR Loan made by it at the Yen LIBOR Rate for such Loan by a matching deposit or other borrowing in the offshore interbank market for such currency for a comparable amount and for a comparable period, whether or not such Yen LIBOR Loan was in fact so funded; and (B) the losses and expenses of any Lender resulting from any event described in clause (i) above, any failure by such Borrower to borrow or continue a Loan as contemplated by clause (ii) above or any assignment pursuant to clause (iii) above shall not exceed the excess, if any, of (x) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the principal amount of the applicable Loan had such event not occurred, at the Yen LIBOR applicable (or that would have been applicable) to such Loan, for the period from the date of such event to the last day of the then current Interest Period therefor (or, in the case of a failure to borrow, convert or continue, for the period that would have been the Interest Period for such Loan), over (ii) the amount of interest that would accrue on such principal amount for such period at the interest rate that such Lender would bid, at the commencement of such period, for deposits in the applicable currency of a comparable amount and period from other banks in the applicable eurocurrency market.

Any Lender requesting compensation pursuant to this Section 2.11 shall deliver to the applicable Borrower (with copies to Prologis and Administrative Agent) a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail a calculation of the amount demanded and any such certificate shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error.  The applicable Borrower shall pay the applicable Lender the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 15 days after receipt thereof.

Section 2.12 Computation of Interest and Fees.  Interest based on the Prime Rate shall be computed on the basis of a year of 365 days (or 366 days in a leap year) and paid for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).  All other interest and fees shall be computed on the basis of a year of 360 days and paid for the actual number of days elapsed (including the first day but excluding the last day).

Section 2.13 Use of Proceeds.  Each Borrower shall use the proceeds of the Loans for working capital, capital expenditures, development, acquisitions, and other lawful corporate purposes, including hedging, investing and refinancing of the Existing Revolving Credit Agreement.

(b) Each Letter of Credit shall be issued in the minimum amount of JPY 10,000,000 or such lesser amount as may be agreed to by the Fronting Lender.

(c) The Letter of Credit Usage shall be no more than the lesser of (i) JPY 9,000,000,000 and (ii) 20% of the Facility Amount at any one time.

(d) There shall be no more than 25 Letters of Credit outstanding at any one time.

(e) In the event of any request for a drawing under any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereunder, the Fronting Lender shall notify the applicable Borrower and Administrative Agent (and Administrative Agent shall notify each Lender thereof) on or before the date on which the Fronting Lender intends to honor such drawing, and, except as provided in this subsection (e), such Borrower shall reimburse the Fronting Lender, in immediately available funds in Yen, on the same day on which such drawing is honored in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing.

(i) Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, unless the applicable Borrower shall have notified Administrative Agent and the Fronting Lender prior to 1:00 P.M. on the Business Day immediately preceding the date of such drawing that such Borrower intends to reimburse the Fronting Lender for the amount of such drawing with funds other than the proceeds of the Loans, such Borrower shall be deemed to have timely given a Notice of Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.2 to Administrative Agent, requesting a Borrowing of Base Rate Loans on the date on which such drawing is honored and in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing.  Each Lender (other than the Fronting Lender) shall, in accordance with Section 2.3(b), make available its pro rata share of such Borrowing to Administrative Agent, the proceeds of which shall be applied directly by Administrative Agent to reimburse the Fronting Lender for the amount of such draw.  In the event that any Lender fails to make available to the Fronting Lender the amount of such Lender’s participation on the date of a drawing, the Fronting Lender shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest at the Prime Rate commencing on the date such drawing is honored, and the provisions of Section 9.15 shall otherwise apply to such failure.

(ii) Notwithstanding the terms of Section 2.14(e)(i), (a) if any Lender has previously advised Administrative Agent and Borrower that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan and such notice has not been withdrawn and (b) if the applicable Borrower has not notified Administrative Agent and the Fronting Lender prior to 1:00 P.M. on the Business Day immediately preceding the date of such drawing that such Borrower intends to reimburse the Fronting Lender for the amount of such drawing with funds

41

 


 

other than the proceeds of the Loans, then (x) the amount of such drawing shall be deemed to be a Borrowing of a Base Rate Loan from the Fronting Lender (to be funded solely by the Fronting Lender) on the date on which such drawing is honored and in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing and (y) such Borrower shall be deemed to have given a Notice of Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.2 to Administrative Agent requesting a Borrowing of Yen LIBOR Loans with an Interest Period of seven days (provided if such Interest Period is not available from all Lenders, such Borrower shall be deemed to have elected an Interest Period of 30 days) on the date on which such drawing is honored and in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing.  Each Lender shall, in accordance with Section 2.3(b), make available its Pro Rata Share of such Borrowing of Yen LIBOR Loans under clause (y) above to Administrative Agent, the proceeds of which shall be applied directly by Administrative Agent to repay the Base Rate Loan made by the Fronting Lender under clause (x) above.  In the event that any Lender fails to fund its Pro Rata Share of such Yen LIBOR Loans in accordance with the terms of Section 2.3(b), the Fronting Lender shall be entitled to recover such amount on demand from such Lender together with interest at the Prime Rate commencing on the date such drawing is honored, and the provisions of Section 9.15 shall otherwise apply to such failure.

(f) If, at the time a beneficiary under any Letter of Credit requests a drawing thereunder, a Guarantor Event of Default as described in Section 6.1(h) or Section 6.1(i) shall have occurred and is continuing or a Borrower Event of Default as described in Section 6.3(e) and 6.3(f) with respect to the Borrower for whose account such Letter of Credit was issued shall have occurred and is continuing, then on the date on which the Fronting Lender shall have honored such drawing, the applicable Borrower shall have an unreimbursed obligation (the “Unreimbursed Obligation”) to the Fronting Lender in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing, which amount shall bear interest at the annual rate of the sum of the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin for Base Rate Loans plus 2.000%; provided if any Lender has previously advised Administrative Agent and Borrower that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan and until such notice is withdrawn, such amount shall bear interest at a rate per annum equal to the sum of the Applicable Margin for Yen LIBOR Loans plus Yen LIBOR with an Interest Period of seven days (provided if such Interest Period is not available from all Lenders, such rate shall be calculated based upon an Interest Period of 30 days) plus 2.000%.  Each Lender shall purchase an undivided participating interest in such drawing in an amount equal to its Pro Rata Share of the Commitments, and upon receipt thereof the Fronting Lender shall deliver to such Lender an Unreimbursed Obligation participation certificate dated the date of the Fronting Lender’s receipt of such funds and in the amount of such Lender’s Pro Rata Share.

(g) If, after the date hereof, any change in any law or regulation or in the interpretation thereof by any Governmental Authority charged with the administration thereof shall either (i) impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit or similar requirement against letters of credit issued by, or assets held by, or deposits in or for the account of, or participations in any letter of credit, upon any Lender (including the Fronting Lender) or (ii) impose on any Lender any other condition regarding this Agreement or such Lender (including the Fronting Lender) as it pertains to any Letter of Credit or any participation therein and the result of any event referred to in the preceding clause (i) or (ii) shall be to increase, by an amount deemed by

the Fronting Lender or such Lender to be material, the cost to the Fronting Lender or any Lender of issuing or maintaining such Letter of Credit or participating therein, then the Borrower for whose account such Letter of Credit was issued shall pay to the Fronting Lender or such Lender, within 15 days after written demand by such Lender (with a copy to Administrative Agent), which demand shall be accompanied by a certificate showing, in reasonable detail, the calculation of such amount or amounts, such additional amounts as shall be required to compensate the Fronting Lender or such Lender for such increased costs or reduction in amounts received or receivable hereunder. Each Lender will promptly notify each affected Borrower and Administrative Agent of any event of which it has knowledge, occurring after the date hereof, which will entitle such Lender to compensation pursuant to this Section 2.14 and will designate a different Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, such compensation and will not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.  If such Lender shall fail to notify any affected Borrower of any such event within 90 days following the end of the month during which such event occurred, then such Borrower’s liability for any amounts described in this Section incurred by such Lender as a result of such event shall be limited to those attributable to the period occurring subsequent to the 90th day prior to, but excluding, the date upon which such Lender actually notified such Borrower of the occurrence of such event.  A certificate of any Lender claiming compensation under this Section 2.14 and setting forth a reasonably detailed calculation of the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder shall be conclusive in the absence of demonstrable error.  In determining such amount, such Lender may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods.

(h) Each Borrower hereby agrees to protect, indemnify, pay and save the Fronting Lender harmless from and against any claims, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, charges and expenses (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees and disbursements) which the Fronting Lender may incur or be subject to as a result of (i) the issuance of Letters of Credit for the account of such Borrower, other than to the extent of the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Fronting Lender or (ii) the failure of the Fronting Lender to honor a drawing under such Letter of Credit as a result of any act or omission, whether rightful or wrongful, of any present or future de jure or de facto government or governmental authority (collectively, “Governmental Acts”), other than to the extent of the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Fronting Lender.  As between the Borrower for whose account the Letter of Credit was issued and the Fronting Lender, such Borrower assumes all risks of the acts and omissions of any beneficiary with respect to its use, or misuses of, such Letter of Credit issued by the Fronting Lender.  In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the Fronting Lender shall not be responsible (i) for the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for and issuance of such Letters of Credit, even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged; (ii) for the validity or insufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign any such Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason; (iii) for failure of the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit to comply fully with conditions required in order to draw upon such Letter of Credit, other than as a result of the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Fronting Lender; (iv) for errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any message, by

43

 


 

mail, cable, telegraph, facsimile transmission, or otherwise; (v) for errors in interpretation of any technical terms; (vi) for any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any documents required in order to make a drawing under any such Letter of Credit or of the proceeds thereof; (vii) for the misapplication by the beneficiary of any such Letter of Credit of the proceeds of such Letter of Credit; and (viii) for any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of the Fronting Lender, including any Governmental Acts, in each case other than to the extent of the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Fronting Lender.  None of the above shall affect, impair or prevent the vesting of the Fronting Lender’s rights and powers hereunder.  In furtherance and extension and not in limitation of the specific provisions hereinabove set forth, any action taken or omitted by the Fronting Lender under or in connection with the Letters of Credit issued by it or the related certificates, if taken or omitted in good faith, shall not put the Fronting Lender under any resulting liability to any Borrower; provided that, notwithstanding anything in the foregoing to the contrary, the Fronting Lender will be liable to the Borrower for whose account a Letter of Credit was issued for any damages suffered by such Borrower or its Subsidiaries as a result of the Fronting Lender’s grossly negligent or willful failure to pay under such Letter of Credit after the presentation to it of a sight draft and certificates strictly in compliance with the terms and conditions of such Letter of Credit.

(i) If the Fronting Lender or Administrative Agent is required at any time, pursuant to any bankruptcy, insolvency, liquidation or reorganization law or otherwise, to return to a Borrower any reimbursement by such Borrower of any drawing under any Letter of Credit, each Lender shall pay to the Fronting Lender or Administrative Agent, as the case may be, its Pro Rata Share of such payment, but without interest thereon unless the Fronting Lender or Administrative Agent is required to pay interest on such amounts to the person recovering such payment, in which case with interest thereon, computed at the same rate, and on the same basis, as the interest that the Fronting Lender or Administrative Agent is required to pay.

(j) It is hereby acknowledged and agreed by the Borrower, Administrative Agent and all of the Lenders party hereto that on the Closing Date, the Letters of Credit previously issued by Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation, as “Fronting Lender” under the Existing Revolving Credit Agreement, and more particularly set forth on Schedule 2.14 hereto, shall be transferred to this Agreement and shall be deemed to be Letters of Credit hereunder.

Section 2.15 Letter of Credit Usage Absolute.  The obligations of each Borrower under this Agreement in respect of any Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower shall be unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and any Letter of Credit Documents under all circumstances, including, to the extent permitted by law, the following circumstances:

(a) any lack of validity or enforceability of any Letter of Credit or any other agreement or instrument relating thereto (collectively, the “Letter of Credit Documents”) or any Loan Document;

(b) any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the obligations of any Borrower in respect of any other Letters of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower or any other Borrower or any other amendment or waiver of or any consent by any Borrower to depart from all or any of the Letter of Credit Documents or any Loan

(d) the existence of any claim, set-off, defense or other right that such Borrower may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of a Letter of Credit (or any Persons for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), Administrative Agent, the Fronting Lender or any Lender (other than a defense based on the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of Administrative Agent, the Fronting Lender or such Lender) or any other Person, whether in connection with the Loan Documents, the transactions contemplated hereby or by the Letter of Credit Documents or any unrelated transaction;

(e) any draft or any other document presented under or in connection with any Letter of Credit or other Loan Document proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; provided that payment by the Fronting Lender under such Letter of Credit against presentation of such draft or document shall not have been the result of the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Fronting Lender;

(f) payment by the Fronting Lender against presentation of a draft or certificate that does not strictly comply with the terms of the Letter of Credit; provided that such payment shall not have been the result of the bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Fronting Lender; and

(g) any other circumstance or happening whatsoever other than the payment in full of all obligations hereunder in respect of any Letter of Credit or any agreement or instrument relating to any Letter of Credit, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, the applicable Borrower; provided that such other circumstance or happening shall not have been the result of bad faith, gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Fronting Lender.

Section 2.16 Letters of Credit Maturing after the Maturity Date.

(a) Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if any Letters of Credit, by their terms, shall mature after the Maturity Date (as the same may be extended), then, on and after the Maturity Date, the provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect with respect to such Letters of Credit, and the Borrower shall comply with the provisions of Section 2.16(b).  No Letter of Credit shall mature on a date that is more than 12 months after the Maturity Date then in effect.

(b) If, at any time and from time to time, any Letter of Credit shall have been issued hereunder and the same shall expire on a date after the Maturity Date, then, on the Maturity Date,

Section 2.17 Addition of Qualified Borrowers; Release of Qualified Borrowers.

(a) If after the Closing Date, Prologis desires to cause another Subsidiary that otherwise satisfies the definition of a Qualified Borrower hereunder to become a Qualified Borrower hereunder, then Prologis shall so notify Administrative Agent and upon satisfaction of the following conditions, such Subsidiary shall become a Qualified Borrower under this Agreement: (x) such Subsidiary shall duly execute and deliver to Administrative Agent applicable Qualified Borrower Joinder Documents and (y) such Subsidiary shall satisfy all of the conditions with respect thereto set forth in the Qualified Borrower Joinder Agreement.  Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender upon a Subsidiary’s addition as a Qualified Borrower hereunder. Each such Qualified Borrower shall remain a Qualified Borrower hereunder until released as provided in Section 2.17(b) below.  If the Qualified Borrower that is being added as a Qualified Borrower hereunder is a TMK, then each Lender shall execute and deliver to Administrative Agent 20 originally executed Consents within five Business Days after such Qualified Borrower has been added as a Qualified Borrower hereunder.  

(b) At such time as any Qualified Borrower pays in full any Loans made to it and no Loan is outstanding to such Qualified Borrower hereunder, Prologis, if it so elects in its sole discretion, may deliver written notice to Administrative Agent that such Qualified Borrower shall no longer be a Qualified Borrower hereunder, together with the form attached hereto as Exhibit I (the “Qualified Borrower Removal Notice/Form”) completed with respect to such Qualified Borrower, and such Qualified Borrower shall be released as a Qualified Borrower under the Loan Documents and the Notes executed and delivered by such Qualified Borrower shall be returned to such Qualified Borrower, provided that simultaneously with such release and return, the Guarantors shall deliver a Ratification.  Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender, deliver to each Lender a copy of the completed Qualified Borrower Removal Notice/Form upon a Subsidiary’s release and removal as a Qualified Borrower hereunder, and each Lender shall return to the Qualified Borrower each Note made by such Qualified Borrower and held by such Lender.

received the written notice referred to in Section 2.18.1 and (b) Prologis shall have paid to Administrative Agent, for the benefit of each Lender, an extension fee in an amount equal to 0.125% times such Lender’s Commitment, and Administrative Agent shall promptly remit such extension fee to each Lender upon receipt thereof; provided that if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing on the date on which such conditions are satisfied with respect to a proposed extension, the Extension Effective Date for such extension shall be the first date thereafter, if any, on or before the then-applicable Maturity Date on which no Event of Default is continuing.  Upon the satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in this Section 2.18.2 and the occurrence of an Extension Effective Date, Administrative Agent shall promptly confirm to Prologis and the Lenders such extension and such Extension Effective Date.  

Section 2.19 Substitution of Borrower.  If a Substitution Event occurs and is continuing, then Prologis may, upon 15 Business Days notice to Administrative Agent, cause a single Subsidiary that satisfies the definition of a Qualified Borrower to become the “Borrower” and to assume all of the existing Loans and other obligations of the then-existing Borrower hereunder; provided that such Subsidiary shall (a) deliver to Administrative Agent Qualified Borrower Joinder Documents pursuant to which it shall become a party hereto, (b) satisfy all of the conditions for becoming the Borrower set forth in the Qualified Borrower Joinder Agreement and (c) deliver such documentation and other evidence as is reasonably requested by Administrative Agent (for itself or on behalf of any Lender), within five Business Days after Prologis notifies Administrative Agent of the substitution of the Borrower, to allow Administrative Agent or such Lender to carry out and be satisfied that it has complied with all necessary “know your customer” or other similar checks under all applicable Laws with respect to such Subsidiary.  Upon such assumption, (A) the existing Borrower shall be released from its obligations hereunder and (B) the Notes executed and delivered by the existing Borrower shall be returned to the existing Borrower; provided that simultaneously with such release and return, the Guarantors shall deliver a Ratification.  For purposes of the foregoing, “Substitution Event” means (i) the occurrence of an Event of Default under Section 6.3(e), (f) or (h) or (ii) any Change in Law, change in tax rates, policies or procedures or change in accounting policies or procedures that, in any such case, results (or may result) in any increased costs, increased taxes or other material disadvantage to any Loan Party or any Affiliate thereof that would not be incurred or applicable to the same extent (or would have less impact) should the Subsidiary replace the existing Borrower pursuant to this Section 2.19.

(ii) There are no pending or, to the best knowledge of any Borrower, threatened claims, actions or lawsuits, or action by any Governmental Authority, with respect to any Plan that could reasonably be expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.  Neither Prologis nor any other Borrower has knowledge of any prohibited transaction (within the meaning of Section 4975 of the Code or Section 406 of ERISA) or violation of the fiduciary responsibility rules (within the meaning of Section 404 or 405 of ERISA) with respect to any Plan that has resulted or could reasonably be expected to result in a Material Adverse Effect.

(iii) No ERISA Event has occurred or is reasonably expected to occur; (ii) neither Prologis nor any ERISA Affiliate has incurred, or reasonably expects to incur, any Liability under Title IV of ERISA with respect to any Pension Plan (other than premiums due and not delinquent under Section 4007 of ERISA); (iii) neither Prologis nor any ERISA Affiliate has incurred any unsatisfied, or reasonably expects to incur any, Liability (and no event has occurred which, with the giving of notice under Section 4219 of ERISA, would result in such Liability) under Section 4201 or 4243 of ERISA with respect to a Multiemployer Plan; and (iv) neither Prologis nor any ERISA Affiliate has

54

 


 

engaged in a transaction that reasonably could be expected to be subject to Sections 4069 or 4212(c) of ERISA.

(v) officers or persons involved substantially in its management having socially condemnable relationships with Gang Members, Etc.

(u) Sanctions and Anti-Corruption Laws. No Company is located, organized or resident in any Sanctioned Country in violation of applicable Sanctions; provided that if a Company is located, organized or resident in a jurisdiction that becomes a Sanctioned Country after the date of this Agreement, such Company shall not be a “Company” for purposes of the foregoing so long as (i) such Company is taking reasonable steps either to obtain appropriate licenses for transacting business in such jurisdiction or to no longer be located, organized or resident in such jurisdiction and (ii) such Person’s being located, organized or resident in such country or territory (x) will not result in any violation of Sanctions by Administrative Agent or any Lender and (y) would not be reasonably expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.  Each Company is in compliance in all material respects with all applicable Anti-Corruption Laws, except for any failure to comply that (A) is not systemic, (B) does not involve senior management of such Company and (C) would not be reasonably expected to have a Material Adverse Effect.  The Borrowers will not use, or knowingly permit any other Person to use, any Letter of Credit or the proceeds of any Loan in any manner that will violate any Anti-Corruption Law or Sanctions applicable to such Borrower or such other Person or any Lender Party.

Section 4.2 Representations and Warranties by the Initial Borrower.  To induce the Lenders to make the Loans, the Initial Borrower makes the following representations and warranties as of the Closing Date. Such representations and warranties shall survive the effectiveness of this Agreement, the execution and delivery of the other Loan Documents and the making of the Loans.

(a) Existence and Power.  The Initial Borrower is an entity duly formed under the laws of Japan.  The Initial Borrower has all powers and all material governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals required to own its property and assets and carry on its business as now conducted or as it presently proposes to conduct and has been duly qualified and, to the extent applicable, is in good standing in every jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified and/or in good standing is likely to have a Material Adverse Effect.

(b) Power and Authority.

(i) The Initial Borrower has the requisite power and authority to execute, deliver and carry out the terms and provisions of each of the Loan Documents to which it is a party and has taken all necessary action, if any, to authorize the execution and delivery on behalf of the Initial Borrower and the performance by the Initial Borrower of the Loan Documents to which it is a party.

(ii) The Initial Borrower has duly executed and delivered each Loan Document to which it is a party in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, and each such Loan Document constitutes, or will constitute, the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Initial Borrower, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable Debtor Relief Laws and general principles of equity, whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.

(c) No Violation.  Neither the execution, delivery or performance by or on behalf of the Initial Borrower of the Loan Documents to which it is a party, nor compliance by the Initial Borrower with the terms and provisions thereof nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated by such Loan Documents, (i) will materially contravene any applicable provision of any law, statute, rule, regulation, order, writ, injunction or decree of any court or governmental instrumentality, (ii) will materially conflict with or result in any breach of, any of the terms, covenants, conditions or provisions of, or constitute a default under, or result in the creation or imposition of (or the obligation to create or impose) any Lien upon any of the property or assets of the Initial Borrower pursuant to the terms of any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, or other agreement or other instrument to which the Initial Borrower (or of any partnership of which the Initial Borrower is a partner) is a party or by which it or any of its property or assets is bound or to which it is subject (except for such breaches and defaults under loan agreements which the lenders thereunder have agreed to forbear pursuant to valid forbearance agreements), or (iii) will cause a material default by the Initial Borrower under any Organization Document of any Person in which the Initial Borrower has an interest, or cause a

56

 


 

material default under the Initial Borrower’s organizational documents, the consequences of which conflict, breach or default would have a Material Adverse Effect, or result in or require the creation or imposition of any Lien whatsoever upon any Property (except as contemplated herein).

(d) Litigation.  As of the Closing Date, except as previously disclosed by the Guarantors in writing to the Lenders, there is no action, suit or proceeding pending against or, to the knowledge of the Initial Borrower, threatened against or affecting, (i) the Initial Borrower, (ii) the Loan Documents or any of the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents or (iii) any of their assets, before any court or arbitrator or any governmental body, agency or official in which there is a reasonable possibility of an adverse decision which could, individually, or in the aggregate have a Material Adverse Effect or which in any manner draws into question the validity of this Agreement or the other Loan Documents.  As of the Closing Date, no such action, suit or proceeding exists.

Section 7.2 Agency and Affiliates.  Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation has the same rights and powers under this Agreement as any other Lender and may exercise or refrain from exercising the same as though it were not Administrative Agent and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation and each of its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, and generally engage in any kind of business with the Loan Parties or any Subsidiary or Affiliate of the Loan Parties as if it were not Administrative Agent hereunder, and the term “Lender” and “Lenders” shall include Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation in its individual capacity.

Section 7.4 Consultation with Experts.  As between Administrative Agent on the one hand and the Lenders on the other hand, Administrative Agent may consult with legal counsel (who may be counsel for the Loan Parties), independent public accountants and other experts selected by it and shall not be liable for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it in good faith in accordance with the advice of such counsel, accountants or experts.

Section 7.5 Liability of Administrative Agent.  As between Administrative Agent on the one hand and the Lenders on the other hand, neither Administrative Agent nor any of its Affiliates nor any of its directors, officers, agents or employees shall be liable for any action taken or not taken by it in connection herewith (i) with the consent or at the request of the Majority Lenders or (ii) in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct.  As between Administrative Agent on the one hand and the Lenders on the other hand, neither Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, agents or employees shall be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain, inquire into or verify (i) any statement, warranty or representation made in connection with this Agreement or any borrowing hereunder; (ii) the performance or observance of any of the covenants or agreements of the Loan Parties; (iii) the

73

 


 

satisfaction of any condition specified in Article III, except receipt of items required to be delivered to Administrative Agent, or (iv) the validity, effectiveness or genuineness of this Agreement, the other Loan Documents or any other instrument or writing furnished in connection herewith. As between Administrative Agent on the one hand and the Lenders on the other hand, Administrative Agent shall not incur any liability by acting in reliance upon any notice, consent, certificate, statement, or other writing (which may be a bank wire, telex or similar writing) believed by it to be genuine or to be signed by the proper party or parties.

Section 7.6 Indemnification.  Each Lender shall, ratably in accordance with its Commitment, indemnify Administrative Agent and its Affiliates and their respective directors, officers, agents and employees (to the extent not reimbursed by the Loan Parties) against any cost, expense (including reasonable and documented counsel fees and disbursements), claim, demand, action, loss or liability (except such as result from such indemnitee’s gross negligence or willful misconduct) that such indemnitee may suffer or incur in connection with its duties as Administrative Agent under this Agreement, the other Loan Documents or any action taken or omitted by such indemnitee hereunder.  In the event that Administrative Agent shall, subsequent to its receipt of indemnification payment(s) from Lenders in accordance with this Section 7.6, recoup any amount from any Loan Party, or any other party liable therefor in connection with such indemnification, Administrative Agent shall reimburse the Lenders which previously made the payment(s) pro rata, based upon the actual amounts which were theretofore paid by each Lender. Administrative Agent shall reimburse such Lenders so entitled to reimbursement within two Business Days of its receipt of such funds from such Loan Party or such other party liable therefor.

Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own credit decisions in taking or not taking any action under this Agreement.

Section 7.8 Successor Agent.  Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving notice thereof to the Lenders and the Loan Parties, and Administrative Agent shall resign in the event its Commitment (without participants) is reduced to less than the Commitment of any other Lender.  Upon any such resignation, the Majority Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent which successor Administrative Agent shall be subject to Fronting Lender’s approval and, provided no Guarantor Event of Default has occurred and is then continuing, be subject to Prologis’ approval, which approval (in both cases) shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  If no successor Administrative Agent shall have been so appointed by the Majority Lenders and approved by Prologis and the Fronting Lender, and shall have accepted such appointment, within 30 days after the retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of resignation, then the retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent, which shall be Administrative Agent who shall act until the Majority Lenders shall appoint an Administrative Agent.  Any appointment of a successor Administrative Agent by the Majority Lenders or the retiring Administrative Agent pursuant to the preceding sentence shall be subject to the approval of the Fronting Lender

74

 


 

approval and, provided no Guarantor Event of Default has occurred and is then continuing, Prologis’ approval, which approval (in either case) shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.  Upon the acceptance of its appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder.  After any retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder, the provisions of this Article shall inure to its benefit as to any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was Administrative Agent.  For gross negligence or willful misconduct, as determined by all the Lenders (excluding for such determination Administrative Agent in its capacity as a Lender, as applicable), or if Administrative Agent becomes a Defaulting Lender (as determined by the Majority Lenders other than Administrative Agent in its capacity as a Lender, and Prologis), Administrative Agent may be removed at any time by giving at least 30 Business Days’ prior written notice to Administrative Agent and Prologis.  Such resignation or removal shall take effect upon the acceptance of appointment by a successor Administrative Agent in accordance with the provisions of this Section 7.8.

Section 7.9 Consents and Approvals.  All communications from Administrative Agent to the Lenders requesting the Lenders’ determination, consent, approval or disapproval (i) shall be given in the form of a written notice to each Lender, (ii) shall be accompanied by a description of the matter or item as to which such determination, approval, consent or disapproval is requested, or shall advise each Lender where such matter or item may be inspected, or shall otherwise describe the matter or issue to be resolved, (iii) shall include, if reasonably requested by a Lender and to the extent not previously provided to such Lender, written materials and a summary of all oral information provided to Administrative Agent by a Borrower or any Guarantor in respect of the matter or issue to be resolved, (iv) shall include Administrative Agent’s recommended course of action or determination in respect thereof, and (v) shall include the following clause in capital letters, “FAILURE TO RESPOND TO THIS NOTICE WITHIN THE LENDER REPLY PERIOD SHALL BE DEEMED CONSENT TO THE RECOMMENDATION SET FORTH HEREIN”.  Each Lender shall reply promptly, but in any event within ten Business Days after receipt of the request therefor from Administrative Agent (the “Lender Reply Period”).  Unless a Lender shall give written notice to Administrative Agent that it objects to the recommendation or determination of Administrative Agent (together with a written explanation of the reasons behind such objection) within the Lender Reply Period, such Lender shall be deemed to have approved of or consented to such recommendation or determination.  With respect to decisions requiring the approval of the Majority Lenders or all the Lenders, Administrative Agent shall submit its recommendation or determination for approval of or consent to such recommendation or determination to all Lenders and upon receiving the required approval or consent (or deemed approval or consent, as the case may be) shall follow the course of action or determination of the Majority Lenders or all the Lenders (and each non-responding Lender shall be deemed to have concurred with such recommended course of action), as the case may be.

Agreement, or (iii) certain actions to be taken by such TMK Qualified Borrower in connection with any indebtedness to be obtained by such TMK Qualified Borrower, provided such indebtedness does not violate this Agreement (“TMK Permitted  Indebtedness”).  Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders acknowledges the foregoing and hereby consents to any amendment to each TMK Qualified Borrower’s Asset Liquidation Plan that is required as a result of (i) such TMK’s respective actions taken in accordance with, or not prohibited by, this Agreement, (ii) its status as a Qualified Borrower under this Agreement, or (iii) such TMK Qualified Borrower’s actions to be taken in accordance with a TMK Permitted Indebtedness, except to the extent any such amendment materially adversely affects the rights and/or remedies of any such Lender hereunder.  Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders shall reasonably cooperate with any TMK Qualified Borrower, at such TMK Qualified Borrower’s sole cost and expense, in amending its Asset Liquidation Plan and timely provide any TMK Qualified Borrower with such executed consents, acknowledgments of notice or other documents as such TMK Qualified Borrower may reasonably request or as may be required by the applicable Japanese governmental authorities to so amend its Asset Liquidation Plan.  In furtherance of the foregoing, each Lender shall execute and deliver to Administrative Agent 20 originals of the “Prior Consent Concerning Amendment to Asset Liquidation Plan” in the form of Exhibit C (the “Consents”) within five Business Days after a TMK Qualified Borrower has been added as a Qualified Borrower pursuant to Section 2.17, and the Lenders hereby authorize Administrative Agent to complete one or more of such Consents and deliver the same in the event any TMK Qualified Borrower seeks to amend its Asset Liquidation Plan in accordance with this Section 7.10, provided that any action described in such Consent must not violate this Agreement.  Within ten days of the request of Administrative Agent during the Term, each Lender shall promptly execute and deliver such additional Consents as may be so requested and necessary for the purposes set forth in this Section 7.10.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if such amendment is immaterial as set forth in Article 151, Section 3, Item 1 of the TMK Law, no consent of Administrative Agent nor of any Lender shall be required.

ARTICLE VIII

CHANGE IN CIRCUMSTANCES

Section 8.1 Basis for Determining Interest Rate Inadequate or Unfair.  If on or prior to the first day of any Interest Period for any Yen LIBOR Borrowing, Administrative Agent determines in good faith that deposits in Yen (in the applicable amounts) are not being offered in the relevant market for such Interest Period, Administrative Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to Prologis and the Lenders, whereupon until Administrative Agent notifies Prologis and the Lenders that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, the obligations of the Lenders to make Yen LIBOR Loans shall be suspended.  In such event, unless the applicable Borrower notifies Administrative Agent on or before the second Business Day before, but excluding, the date of any Yen LIBOR Borrowing for which a Notice of Borrowing has previously been given that it elects not to borrow on such date, such Borrowing shall instead be made as a Base Rate Borrowing (unless any Lender has previously advised Administrative Agent and the Borrowers that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan and such notice has not been withdrawn, in which event Administrative Agent shall determine in good faith the appropriate rate of interest after consultation with the applicable Borrower and such Lender).

76

 


 

If, at any time, the obligations of the Lenders to make Yen LIBOR Loans shall be suspended pursuant to the terms of this Section 8.1, with respect to any Lender that has previously notified Administrative Agent and the Borrowers that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan which notice has not been withdrawn, Prologis shall have the right, upon five Business Days’ notice to Administrative Agent, to either (x) cause a bank, reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent, to offer to purchase the Commitments of such Lender for an amount equal to such Lender’s outstanding Loans and to become a Lender hereunder, or to obtain the agreement of one or more existing Lenders to offer to purchase the Commitments of such Lender for such amount, which offer such Lender is hereby required to accept, or (y) to repay in full all Loans then outstanding of such Lender, together with interest and all other amounts due thereon, upon which event, such Lender’s Commitment shall be deemed to be canceled pursuant to Section 2.9(d).

Section 8.2 Illegality.  If, on or after the date of this Agreement, the adoption of any applicable Law, rule or regulation, or any change in any applicable Law, rule or regulation, or any change in the interpretation or administration thereof by any Governmental Authority, central bank or comparable agency charged with the interpretation or administration thereof, or compliance by any Lender (or its Lending Office) with any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) made after the Closing Date of any such authority, central bank or comparable agency shall make it unlawful for any Lender (or its Lending Office) (x) to make, maintain or fund its Yen LIBOR Loans, or (y) to participate in any Letter of Credit issued by the Fronting Lender, or, with respect to the Fronting Lender, to issue a Letter of Credit, Administrative Agent shall forthwith give notice thereof to the other Lenders and the Loan Parties, whereupon until such Lender notifies the Loan Parties and Administrative Agent that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension no longer exist, the obligation of such Lender in the case of the event described in clause (x) above to make Yen LIBOR Loans, or in the case of the event described in clause (y) above, to participate in any Letter of Credit issued by the Fronting Lender or, with respect to the Fronting Lender, to issue any Letter of Credit, shall be suspended.  With respect to Yen LIBOR Loans, before giving any notice to Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section, such Lender shall designate a different Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for giving such notice and will not, in the judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.  If such Lender shall determine that it may not lawfully continue to maintain and fund any of its outstanding Yen LIBOR Loans to maturity and shall so specify in such notice, the applicable Borrower shall be deemed to have delivered a Notice of Interest Rate Election and such Yen LIBOR Loan shall be converted as of such date to a Base Rate Loan (without payment of any amounts that such Borrower would otherwise be obligated to pay pursuant to Section 2.11 hereof with respect to Loans converted pursuant to this Section 8.2) in an equal principal amount from such Lender (on which interest and principal shall be payable contemporaneously with the related Yen LIBOR Loans of the other Lenders), and such Lender shall make such a Base Rate Loan (unless such Lender has previously advised Administrative Agent and Borrower that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan, in which event Administrative Agent shall determine in good faith the appropriate rate of interest for such Loans after consultation with the Borrower and such Lender).

If at any time, it shall be unlawful for any Lender to make, maintain or fund its Yen LIBOR Loans, Prologis shall have the right, upon five Business Days’ notice to Administrative

77

 


 

Agent, to either (x) cause a bank, reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent, to offer to purchase the Commitments of such Lender for an amount equal to such Lender’s outstanding Loans, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon, and to become a Lender hereunder, or obtain the agreement of one or more existing Lenders to offer to purchase the Commitments of such Lender for such amount, which offer such Lender is hereby required to accept, or (y) to repay in full all Loans then outstanding of such Lender, together with interest due thereon and any fees due hereunder, upon which event, such Lender’s Commitments shall be deemed to be canceled pursuant to Section 2.9(d).

Section 8.3 Increased Cost and Reduced Return.

(a) If any Change in Law shall impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve (including any such requirement imposed by the Japanese Central Bank), special deposit, insurance assessment or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended by, any Lender (or its Lending Office) or shall impose on any Lender (or its Lending Office) or on the interbank market any other condition materially more burdensome in nature, extent or consequence than those in existence as of the Effective Date affecting such Lender’s Yen LIBOR Loans, its Note, or its obligation to make Yen LIBOR Loans, and the result of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender (or its Lending Office) of making or maintaining any Yen LIBOR Loan, or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Lender (or its Lending Office) under this Agreement or under its Note with respect to such Yen LIBOR Loans, by an amount deemed by such Lender to be material, then, subject to the provisions of Section 8.4 (which shall be controlling with respect to matters covered thereby), within 15 days after demand by such Lender (with a copy to Administrative Agent), each Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts attributable to the Yen LIBOR Loans made to such Borrower (based upon a reasonable allocation thereof by such Lender to the Yen LIBOR Loans made by such Lender hereunder) as will compensate such Lender for such increased cost or reduction to the extent such Lender generally imposes such additional amounts on other borrowers of such Lender in similar circumstances.

(b) If any Lender shall have reasonably determined that any Change in Law has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on capital of such Lender (or its Lender Parent) as a consequence of such Lender’s obligations hereunder to a level below that which such Lender (or its Lender Parent) could have achieved but for such Change in Law by an amount reasonably deemed by such Lender to be material, then from time to time, within 15 days after demand by such Lender (with a copy to Administrative Agent), each Borrower shall pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts attributable to the Yen LIBOR Loans made to such Borrower as will compensate such Lender (or its Lender Parent) for such reduction to the extent such Lender generally imposes such additional amounts on other borrowers of such Lender in similar circumstances.

(c) Each Lender will promptly notify Prologis and Administrative Agent of any event of which it has knowledge, occurring after the date hereof, which will entitle such Lender to compensation pursuant to this Section and will designate a different Lending Office if such designation will avoid the need for, or reduce the amount of, such compensation and will not, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, be otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender. If such Lender shall fail to notify Prologis of any such event within 90 days following the end of the

78

 


 

month during which such event occurred, then the applicable Borrower’s and Guarantor’s liability for any amounts described in this Section incurred by such Lender as a result of such event shall be limited to those attributable to the period occurring subsequent to the 90th day prior to, but excluding, the date upon which such Lender actually notified Prologis of the occurrence of such event.  A certificate of any Lender claiming compensation under this Section and setting forth a reasonably detailed calculation of the additional amount or amounts to be paid to it hereunder shall be conclusive in the absence of demonstrable error.  In determining such amount, such Lender may use any reasonable averaging and attribution methods.

(d) If at any time, any Lender shall be owed amounts pursuant to this Section 8.3, Prologis shall have the right, upon five Business Days’ notice to Administrative Agent to either (x) cause a bank, reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent, to offer to purchase the Commitments of such Lender for an amount equal to such Lender’s outstanding Loans and to become a Lender hereunder, or to obtain the agreement of one or more existing Lenders to offer to purchase the Commitments of such Lender for such amount, which offer such Lender is hereby required to accept, or (y) to repay in full all Loans then outstanding of such Lender, together with interest and all other amounts due thereon, upon which event, such Lender’s Commitment shall be deemed to be canceled pursuant to Section 2.9(d).

Section 8.4 Taxes.

(a) Any payments by any Loan Party to or for the account of any Lender or Administrative Agent hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without deduction or withholding for Taxes, excluding, (w) in the case of each Lender and Administrative Agent, taxes imposed on or measured by its overall income (however denominated), and franchise taxes imposed on it, by the jurisdiction (or any political subdivision thereof) under the laws of which such Lender or Administrative Agent (as the case may be) is organized, in which its principal office, or, in the case of a Lender, its Lending Office, is located, in which it is otherwise conducting business and subject to such taxes or, or by any other jurisdiction (or any political subdivision thereof) as a result of a present or former connection between such Lender or Administrative Agent and such other jurisdiction or by the United States, (x) withholding Taxes imposed on payments to or for the account of any Lender or Administrative Agent that does not maintain a permanent establishment in Japan for purposes of Japanese income tax law, (y) Taxes attributable to any Lender or Administrative Agent’s failure to comply with Sections 8.4(f), (g), (h) or (i), and (z) any Taxes imposed under FATCA (all such excluded Taxes, “Excluded Taxes” and all such non-excluded Taxes imposed on any payment hereunder or under any other Loan Document being hereinafter referred to as “Non-Excluded Taxes”).  If a Loan Party shall be required by law to deduct any Non-Excluded Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder or under any Note or Letter of Credit, (i) the sum payable shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional sums payable under this Section 8.4) such Lender, the Fronting Lender or Administrative Agent (as the case may be) receives an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Loan Party shall make such deductions, (iii) the Loan Party shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxation authority or other authority in accordance with applicable Law and (iv) the Loan Party shall furnish to Administrative Agent, at its address referred to in Section 9.1, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof.

79

 


 

(b) In addition, each Borrower agrees to pay any present or future stamp or documentary taxes and any other excise or property taxes, or charges or similar levies which arise from any payment made hereunder or under any Note made by such Borrower or any Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower or from the execution or delivery of, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement, any Note made by such Borrower or any Letter of Credit issued for the account of such Borrower (hereinafter referred to as “Other Taxes”).

(c) In the event that Non-Excluded Taxes not imposed on the Closing Date are imposed, or Non-Excluded Taxes imposed on the Closing Date increase, the applicable Lender shall notify Administrative Agent and the Loan Parties of such event in writing within a reasonable period following receipt of knowledge thereof.  If such Lender shall fail to notify the Loan Parties of any such event within 90 days following the end of the month during which such event occurred, then such Loan Party’s liability for such additional Non-Excluded Taxes incurred by such Lender as a result of such event (including payment of a make-whole amount under Section 8.4(a)(i)) shall be limited to such Non-Excluded Taxes attributable to the period occurring subsequent to the 90th day prior to, but excluding, the date upon which such Lender actually notified the Loan Parties of the occurrence of such event.

(d) Each Borrower agrees to indemnify each Lender, the Fronting Lender and Administrative Agent for the full amount of Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes for which such Borrower is liable under this Section 8.4 (including any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 8.4) paid by such Lender, the Fronting Lender or Administrative Agent (as the case may be) and, so long as such Lender, the Fronting Lender or Administrative Agent has promptly paid any such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes, any liability for penalties and interest arising therefrom or with respect thereto.  This indemnification shall be made within 15 days from the date such Lender, the Fronting Lender or Administrative Agent (as the case may be) makes written demand therefor stating the amount of such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes and setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for such Taxes.

(e) Each Tranche A Lender confirms to Administrative Agent and to each Loan Party (on the date hereof or, in the case of a Tranche A Lender that becomes a party hereto pursuant to a transfer or assignment, on the date on which the relevant transfer or assignment becomes effective) that it is a Qualified Institutional Investor.  Each Tranche B Lender confirms to Administrative Agent and to each Loan Party (on the date hereof or, in the case of a Tranche B Lender that becomes a party hereto pursuant to a transfer or assignment, on the date on which the relevant transfer or assignment becomes effective) that it is a Non-QII Lender.  Each Lender shall promptly notify Administrative Agent and each Loan Party if there is any change in its status as a Qualified Institutional Investor or a Non-QII Lender, as applicable.

(f) Each Lender will promptly on request by any Borrower incorporated under the laws of Japan or borrowing through its registered branch in Japan take all reasonable steps (if any) required to be taken to establish entitlement to exemption or reduced rate of withholding for such Borrower from withholding under any applicable Japanese laws and any applicable double tax treaty, including satisfying any reasonable information, reporting or other requirement and completion and filing of relevant forms, claims, declarations and similar documents and shall

80

 


 

provide such Borrower with copies of all forms, claims, declarations and similar documents filed for such purpose.

(g) Each Lender represents and warrants (such Lender’s “Exemption Representation”) to the Borrowers that, as of the date of this Agreement or, in the case of a Person that becomes a Lender after the Closing Date, as of the date such Person becomes a party hereto, except as specified in writing to Administrative Agent and Prologis prior to the date of the applicable Exemption Representation, it is entitled to receive payments from each Borrower without any reduction or withholding in respect of any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes and without any amount being required to be paid by any applicable Borrower pursuant to Section 8.4(a).

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Borrower shall be obligated to pay any amount under this Section 8.4 to, or for the benefit of, any Lender to the extent that such amount would not have been required to be paid if (i) such Lender’s Exemption Representation had been accurate or (ii) such Lender had complied with its obligations under Section 8.4.

(h) Each Lender that is established under the laws of a jurisdiction other than Japan and that is acting hereunder through a Lending Office in Japan agrees that it shall, if necessary, from time to time obtain from the relevant tax authorities a certificate certifying that such payment constitutes domestic source income (as provided for in Article 180 of the Income Tax Law (Law No. 33, 1965)) and deliver such certificate to each Borrower as required by Article 180, unless prevented from so doing as a result of the introduction of, or any change in, or any change in the interpretation or the application of, any Law or regulation or as a result of compliance with any Law or regulation made after the date of this Agreement.  Upon reasonable demand by any Loan Party to Administrative Agent or any Lender, Administrative Agent or Lender, as the case may be, shall deliver to the Loan Party, or to such government or taxing authority as the Loan Party may reasonably direct, any form or document that may be required or reasonably requested in writing in order to allow the Loan Party to make a payment to or for the account of such Lender or Administrative Agent hereunder or under any other Loan Document without any deduction or withholding for or on account of any Non-Excluded Taxes or with such deduction or withholding at a reduced rate (so long as the completion, execution or submission of such form or document would not materially prejudice the legal or commercial position of the party in receipt of such demand), with any such form or document to be accurate and completed in a manner reasonably satisfactory to the Loan Party making such demand and to be executed and to be delivered with any reasonably required certification.  In addition, any Lender, if reasonably requested by the Borrower or Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable law or reasonably requested by the Borrower or Administrative Agent as will enable the Borrower or Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to withholding or information reporting requirements and to allow the Borrower and Administrative Agent to comply with any information reporting requirements to which they are subject.

(i) If a payment by Borrower to a Lender 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, 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 either the Borrower or Administrative Agent, such documentation prescribed by applicable Law (including

81

 


 

an IRS Form W-8BEN-E or as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by either the Borrower or Administrative Agent, as applicable, as may be necessary for either the Borrower or Administrative Agent, as applicable, to comply with its obligations under FATCA, to determine that such Non-U.S. Lender has complied with such Non-U.S. Lender’s obligations under FATCA or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment pursuant to FATCA.

(j) If any documentation provided pursuant to paragraph (h) of this Section 8.4 expires or becomes materially inaccurate, the relevant Lender shall promptly provide updated documentation to the relevant Borrower or Administrative Agent.

(k) Administrative Agent and each Borrower may rely on any documentation it receives from any other Lender pursuant to paragraph (h) above without further verification and is not liable for any action it takes under or in connection with paragraph (h) above for purposes of complying with FATCA.

(l) For any period with respect to which a Lender has failed to provide any Borrower with the appropriate form pursuant to Section 8.4(f), Section 8.4(h) or Section 8.4(i) (unless such failure is due to a change in treaty, law or regulation occurring subsequent to the date on which a form originally was required to be provided), such Lender shall not be entitled to any make-whole amount under Section 8.4(a)(i) nor indemnification under Section 8.4(d) with respect to Non-Excluded Taxes; provided that should a Lender, which is otherwise exempt from or subject to a reduced rate of withholding tax, become subject to Non-Excluded Taxes because of its failure to deliver a form required hereunder, such Borrower shall take such steps as such Lender shall reasonably request to assist such Lender to recover such Taxes so long as such Borrower shall incur no cost or liability as a result thereof.

(m) If any Borrower is required to pay additional amounts to or for the account of any Lender pursuant to this Section 8.4, then such Lender will change the jurisdiction of its Lending Office so as to eliminate or reduce any such additional payment that may thereafter accrue if such change, in the judgment of such Lender, is not otherwise disadvantageous to such Lender.

(n) If Administrative Agent or Lender determines, in its reasonable discretion, that it has received a refund of any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by the Borrower or with respect to which the Borrower has paid any make-whole amounts pursuant to Section 8.4(a)(i), it shall pay to the Borrower an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or make-whole amounts paid, by the Borrower under this Section 8.4 with respect to the Non-Excluded Taxes and Other Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of Administrative Agent or such Lender, as the case may be, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant taxing authority with respect to such refund).

(o) If at any time, any Lender shall be owed amounts pursuant to this Section 8.4, Prologis shall have the right, upon five Business Day’s notice to Administrative Agent to either (x) cause a bank, reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent, to offer to purchase the Commitments of such Lender for an amount equal to such Lender’s outstanding Loans, and to become a Lender hereunder, or to obtain the agreement of one or more existing Lenders to offer

82

 


 

to purchase the Commitments of such Lender for such amount, which offer such Lender is hereby required to accept, or (y) to repay in full all Loans then outstanding of such Lender, together with interest and all other amounts due thereon, upon which event, such Lender’s Commitment shall be deemed to be canceled pursuant to Section 2.9(d).

Section 8.5 Base Rate Loans Substituted for Affected Yen LIBOR Loans.  If (i) the obligation of any Lender to make Yen LIBOR Loans has been suspended pursuant to Section 8.2 or (ii) any Lender has demanded compensation under Section 8.3 or 8.4 with respect to its Yen LIBOR Loans and any Borrower shall, by at least five Business Days’ prior notice to such Lender through Administrative Agent, have elected that the provisions of this Section shall apply to such Lender, then, unless and until such Lender notifies such Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such suspension or demand for compensation no longer exist:

(a) such Borrower shall be deemed to have delivered a Notice of Interest Rate Election with respect to such affected Yen LIBOR Loans and thereafter all Loans which would otherwise be made by such Lender to such Borrower as Yen LIBOR Loans shall be made instead as Base Rate Loans (unless such Lender has previously advised Administrative Agent and Borrower that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan, in which event Administrative Agent shall determine in good faith the appropriate rate of interest for such Loans after consultation with the Borrower and such Lender);

(b) after each of its Yen LIBOR Loans has been repaid, all payments of principal which would otherwise be applied to repay such Yen LIBOR Loans shall be applied to repay its Base Rate Loans instead (and after each of its Base Rate Loans has been repaid, all payments of principal shall be applied to repay any remaining outstanding Loans); and

(c) such Borrower will not be required to make any payment that would otherwise be required by Section 2.11 with respect to such Yen LIBOR Loans converted to Base Rate Loans (or other Loans) pursuant to clause (a) above.

In addition, the indemnification set forth in this Section 9.3(b) in favor of any director, officer, agent or employee of Administrative Agent or any Lender shall be solely in their respective capacities as such director, officer, agent or employee.  Each Borrower’s obligations under this Section shall survive the termination of this Agreement, the release of a Qualified Borrower pursuant to Section 2.17 and the payment of the Obligations.  Without limitation of the other provisions of this Section 9.3, each Borrower shall indemnify and hold each of Administrative Agent and the Lenders free and harmless from and against all losses, costs (including reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees and expenses), expenses, taxes, and damages (including consequential damages) that Administrative Agent and the Lenders may suffer or incur by reason of the investigation, defense and settlement of claims and in obtaining any prohibited transaction exemption under ERISA or the Code necessary in Administrative Agent’s reasonable judgment by reason of the inaccuracy of the representations and warranties of such Borrower and/or any Guarantor.

Section 9.4 Sharing of Set-Offs.  In addition to any rights now or hereafter granted under applicable Law or otherwise, and not by way of limitation of any such rights, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, each Lender is hereby authorized at any time or from time to time, without presentment, demand, protest or other notice of any kind to any Loan Party or to any other Person, any such notice being hereby expressly waived, but subject to the prior consent of Administrative Agent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, to set off and to appropriate and apply any deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final) and any other indebtedness at any time held or owing by such Lender (including by branches and agencies of such Lender wherever located) to or for the credit or the account of, any Loan Party against and on account of the Obligations of any Loan Party then due and payable to such Lender under this Agreement or under any of the other Loan Documents, including all interests in Obligations purchased by such Lender (provided that with respect to any Borrower Event of Default, each Lender shall have the right to exercise any or all of the foregoing rights only with respect to the defaulting Borrower and the Obligations of such defaulting Borrower).  Each Lender agrees that if it shall by exercising any right of set-off or counterclaim or otherwise, receive payment of a proportion of the aggregate amount of principal and interest due with respect to any Note held by it or Letter of Credit participated in by it or, in the case of the Fronting Lender, Letter of Credit issued by it (other than with respect to any cash collateral obtained by such Fronting Lender in connection with arrangements made to address

the risk with respect to a Defaulting Lender), which is greater than the proportion received by any other Lender or Letter of Credit issued or participated in by such other Lender, the Lender receiving such proportionately greater payment shall purchase such participations in the Notes held by the other Lenders, and such other adjustments shall be made, as may be required so that all such payments of principal and interest with respect to the Notes held by the Lenders or Letter of Credit issued or participated in by such other Lender shall be shared by the Lenders pro rata; provided that nothing in this Section shall impair the right of any Lender to exercise any right of set-off or counterclaim it may have to any deposits not received in connection with the Loans and to apply the amount subject to such exercise to the payment of indebtedness of any Loan Party other than its indebtedness under the Notes, the Guaranty or the Letters of Credit.  Each Loan Party agrees, to the fullest extent it may effectively do so under applicable Law, that any holder of a participation in a Note or a Letter of Credit, whether or not acquired pursuant to the foregoing arrangements, may exercise rights of set-off or counterclaim and other rights with respect to such participation as fully as if such holder of a participation were a direct creditor of such Loan Party in the amount of such participation.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, any Lender may, by separate agreement with a Loan Party, waive its right to set off contained herein or granted by law and any such written waiver shall be effective against such Lender under this Section 9.4.

Section 9.5 Amendments and Waivers.

(a) Except as otherwise provided below in this Section 9.5, any provision of this Agreement or the Notes or the Letters of Credit or other Loan Documents may be amended or waived if, but only if, such amendment or waiver is in writing and is signed by Prologis or the applicable Loan Party, as the case may be, and the Majority Lenders (and, if the rights or duties of Administrative Agent or the Fronting Lender in their capacity as Administrative Agent or the Fronting Lender, as applicable, including those set forth in Section 9.15, are affected thereby, by Administrative Agent or the Fronting Lender, as applicable); provided that no amendment or waiver with respect to this Agreement, the Notes, the Letters of Credit or any other Loan Documents shall, unless signed by all Lenders affected thereby, increase or decrease the Commitment of such Lender (except for a ratable decrease in the Commitments of all Lenders) or subject such Lender to any additional obligation; provided further that no amendment or waiver with respect to this Agreement, the Notes, the Letters of Credit or any other Loan Document shall, unless signed by all Lenders, (i) reduce the principal of or rate of interest on any Loan or any fees hereunder, (ii) postpone the date fixed for any payment of principal of or interest on any Loan or any fees hereunder or for any reduction or termination of any Commitment, (iii) change the percentage of the Commitments or of the aggregate unpaid principal amount of the Notes, or the number of Lenders, which shall be required for the Lenders or any of them to take any action under this Section or any other provision of this Agreement, (iv) release the Guaranty or (v) modify the provisions of this Section 9.5.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Defaulting Lender shall have any right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent hereunder, except that the Commitment of such Lender may not be increased or extended, nor the principal amount of the Loans owed to such Lender reduced, or the final maturity thereof extended, nor this sentence amended, in each case, without the consent of such Lender.

86

 


 

(b) The provisions in Section 4.1 (other than Sections 4.1(p) and (q)), Article V (other than Sections 5.1(c), 5.9(b) and 5.15), and Section 6.1 contain essentially the same provisions with respect to General Partner and, to the extent applicable, Prologis as those contained in the corresponding representations, warranties, covenants and events of default in each of the Prologis Credit Agreements (as defined below) (the “Conforming Provisions”).  In the event that either Guarantor, Administrative Agent and/or one or more administrative agents under any of the Prologis Credit Agreements propose to modify, waive or restate, or request a consent or approval with respect to, any of the Conforming Provisions (and/or any related definition) in any Prologis Credit Agreement in writing (which may include a written waiver of an existing actual or potential Default or Event of Default that is intended to be eliminated by such modification, restatement or waiver) (each, a “Modification”), and either Guarantor requests corresponding changes to this Agreement, then any such Modifications shall be subject to the approval of the Requisite Lenders (as defined below) and, simultaneously with approval of such Modifications by the Requisite Lenders, this Agreement shall be deemed modified or restated, or such waiver, consent or approval shall be deemed granted, in a manner consistent with such approved Modifications; provided that all the Lenders shall have received notice of any such proposed Modification, together with reasonable time to respond thereto.  If requested by a Guarantor or Administrative Agent, Prologis, Administrative Agent and each Lender shall execute and deliver a written amendment to, restatement of, or waiver, consent or approval, as applicable, under this Agreement memorializing such modification, restatement, waiver, consent or approval.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, however, nothing in this Section 9.5(b) shall be deemed to affect the rights of each Lender under the proviso of Section 9.5(a) and no Modification shall be deemed to effect a change to the provisions referred to therein without the consent of the parties required thereby.  In addition, the Guarantors will be obligated to pay to Administrative Agent and the Lenders fees calculated in the same manner as any fees that Guarantors pay to the agents and the lenders under the other Prologis Credit Agreements in connection with any such approved Modification (excluding any up-front fee, extension fee, or other similar fees paid in connection with an increase in the commitment amount under or an extension of the term of the applicable Prologis Credit Agreement except to the extent that the commitment hereunder is increased or the term hereof is extended).  For the purposes of this Section 9.5(b), “Prologis Credit Agreements” means (i) this Agreement, (ii) the Global Credit Agreement and (iii) any other credit agreement or loan agreement under which General Partner or Prologis is a borrower or guarantor, which contains any financial covenants applicable to General Partner and/or Prologis that are substantially similar to the financial covenants set forth in the Global Credit Agreement to the extent, and for so long as, General Partner designates such credit agreement or loan agreement as a Prologis Credit Agreement (provided that General Partner may revoke any such designation at any time in its sole discretion).  For the avoidance of doubt, the term “Prologis Credit Agreements” shall also include any refinancing or replacement of the foregoing agreements to the extent the representations, warranties, covenants and events of default are substantially similar to those included in the applicable Prologis Credit Agreement being refinanced or replaced.  As used in this Section 9.5(b), “Requisite Lenders” means, at any time, lenders (including the Lenders) having at least 51% of the aggregate amount of (i) all commitments under any Prologis Credit Agreement with respect to which the commitments of the lenders thereunder are still in effect, and (ii) the aggregate unpaid principal amount of the loans outstanding under any Prologis Credit Agreement with respect to which the commitments of the lenders thereunder are no longer in effect.  For purposes of calculating the Requisite Lenders, (x) in the case of swingline loans, the amount of each lender’s funded participation interest in such swingline loans shall be considered as if it were a direct loan and not a participation interest, and the aggregate amount of swingline loans owing to the swingline lender shall be considered as reduced by the amount of such funded participation interests, and (y) in the case of letters of credit, the amount of each lender’s participation in any such letter of credit shall be considered as if it were a direct loan from such lender.

(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, Prologis and Administrative Agent may, without the consent of any other Lender Party, enter into such amendments to any provision of this Agreement or any other Loan Document as Administrative Agent may, in its reasonable opinion, determine to be necessary or appropriate to correct any ambiguity, omission or error herein, and, upon execution thereof by Prologis and Administrative Agent, any such amendment shall be binding on all of the parties hereto.

(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement (and without limiting the foregoing provisions of this Section 9.5), Prologis may, by written notice to Administrative Agent (which shall forward such notice to all Lenders) make an offer (a “Loan Modification Offer”) to all Lenders to make one or more amendments or modifications to allow the maturity of the Loans and/or Commitments of the Accepting Lenders (as defined below) to be extended and, in connection with such extension, to (i)  increase the Applicable Margin and/or fees payable with respect to the applicable Loans and/or the Commitments of the Accepting Lenders and/or the payment of additional fees or other consideration to the Accepting Lenders and/or (ii) change such additional terms and conditions of this Agreement solely as applicable to the Accepting Lenders (such additional changed terms and conditions (to the extent not otherwise approved by the requisite Lenders under the other applicable provisions of this Section 9.5) to be effective only during the period following the original maturity date) (collectively, “Permitted Amendments”) pursuant to procedures reasonably acceptable to each of Prologis and  Administrative Agent.  Such notice shall set forth (i) the terms and conditions of the requested Permitted Amendments and (ii) the date on which such Permitted Amendments are requested to become effective (which shall not be less than 15 days nor more than 90 days after the date of such notice).  Permitted Amendments shall become effective only with respect to the Loans and/or Commitments of the Lenders that accept the Loan Modification Offer (such Lenders, the “Accepting Lenders”) and, in the case of any Accepting Lenders, only with respect to such Lender’s Loans and/or Commitments as to which such Lender’s acceptance has been made.  Prologis, each Accepting Lender and Administrative Agent shall enter into a loan modification agreement (the “Loan Modification Agreement”) and such other documentation as Administrative Agent shall reasonably specify to evidence (x) the acceptance of the Permitted Amendments and the terms and conditions thereof and (y) the authorization of Prologis to enter into and perform its obligations under the Loan Modification Agreement.  Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender as to the effectiveness of any Loan Modification Agreement.  Each party hereto agrees that, upon the effectiveness of a Loan Modification Agreement, this Agreement shall be deemed amended to the extent (but only to the extent) necessary to reflect the existence and terms of the Permitted Amendment evidenced thereby and only with respect to the Loans and Commitments of the Accepting Lenders as to which such Lenders’ acceptance has been made.  Prologis may effectuate no more than two Loan Modification Agreements during the term of this Agreement.

Section 9.6 Successors and Assigns.

(a) The provisions of this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns, except that the Loan Parties may not assign or otherwise transfer any of their rights under this Agreement or the other Loan Documents without the prior written consent of all Lenders and Administrative Agent and a Lender may not assign or otherwise transfer any of its interest under this Agreement except as permitted in subsection (b) and (c) of this Section 9.6.

(b) Prior to the occurrence of a Guarantor Event of Default, (i) any Tranche A Lender may at any time, grant to an existing Tranche A Lender or one or more banks, finance companies, insurance companies or other financial institutions that are Qualified Institutional Investors (a “Participant”) and (ii) any Tranche B Lender may at any time grant to any existing Lender or one or more banks, finance companies, insurance companies or other financial institutions (also a “Participant”), in each case in minimum amounts of not less than JPY 350,000,000 (or any lesser amount in the case of participations to an existing Lender) participating interests in its Commitment or any or all of its Loans. After the occurrence and during the continuance of a Guarantor Event of Default, any Lender may at any time grant to any Person in any amount (also a “Participant”), participating interests in its Commitment or any or all of its Loans.  Any participation granted during the continuation of a Guarantor Event of Default shall not be affected by the subsequent cure of such Guarantor Event of Default.  In the event of any such grant by a Lender of a participating interest to a Participant, whether or not upon notice to the Loan Parties and Administrative Agent, such Lender shall remain responsible for the performance of its obligations hereunder, and the Loan Parties and Administrative Agent shall continue to deal solely and directly with such Lender in connection with such Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement.  Any agreement pursuant to which any Lender may grant such a participating interest shall provide that such Lender shall retain the sole right and responsibility to enforce the obligations of the Loan Parties hereunder, including the right to approve any amendment, modification or waiver of any provision of this Agreement; provided that such participation agreement may provide that such Lender will not agree to any modification, amendment or waiver of this Agreement described in clause (i), (ii), (iii), (iv) or (v) of Section 9.5(a) without the consent of the Participant.  The Loan Parties agree that each Participant shall, to the extent provided in its participation agreement, be entitled to the benefits of Article VIII with respect to its participating interest.  Each Lender that sells a participation  agrees to be responsible for withholding any Taxes from payments to such Participant to the extent such withholding is required by law. Such Lender shall, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of Borrowers, maintain a register on which it enters the name and address of each Participant and the principal amounts (and stated interest) of each Participant’s interest in the Loans or other obligations under the Loan Documents (the “Participant Register”); provided that no Lender shall have any obligation to disclose all or any portion of the Participant Register (including the identity of any Participant or any information relating to a Participant’s interest in any commitments, loans, letters of credit or its other obligations under any Loan Document) to any Person except to the extent that such disclosure is necessary to establish that such commitment, loan, letter of credit or other obligation is in registered form under Section 5f.103-1(c) of the United States Treasury Regulations.  The entries in the Participant Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and such Lender shall treat each Person whose name is

88

 


 

recorded in the Participant Register as the owner of such participation for all purposes of this Agreement notwithstanding any notice to the contrary.  For the avoidance of doubt, Administrative Agent shall not have any responsibility for maintaining a Participant Register.  

(c) Any Tranche A Lender may at any time assign to a Qualified Institutional Investor that is a Qualified Institution, and any Tranche B Lender may at any time assign to a Qualified Institution (in each case, an “Assignee”) (i) prior to the occurrence of a Guarantor Event of Default, in minimum amounts of not less than JPY 350,000,000 and integral multiples of JPY 1,000,000 thereafter (or any lesser amount in the case of assignments to an existing Lender) and (ii) after the occurrence and during the continuance of a Guarantor Event of Default, in any amount, all or a proportionate part of all, of its rights and obligations under this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents, and, in either case, such Assignee shall assume such rights and obligations, pursuant to a Transfer Supplement in substantially the form of Exhibit E executed by such Assignee and such transferor Lender; provided that such assignment shall be subject to Administrative Agent’s, the Fronting Lender’s and, if no Guarantor Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, Prologis’ consent, which consents shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, except that Prologis’ consent shall not be required if an Assignee is an Affiliate of such transferor Lender (unless such transferor Lender is a Defaulting Lender) or was a Lender (unless such Lender is a Defaulting Lender) immediately prior to such assignment.  Upon execution and delivery of such instrument and payment by such Assignee to such transferor Lender of an amount equal to the purchase price agreed between such transferor Lender and such Assignee, such Assignee shall be a Lender party to this Agreement and shall have all the rights and obligations of a Lender with a Commitment as set forth in such instrument of assumption, and no further consent or action by any party shall be required and the transferor Lender shall be released from its obligations hereunder to a corresponding extent.  Upon the consummation of any assignment pursuant to this subsection (c), the transferor Lender, Administrative Agent and each Borrower shall make appropriate arrangements so that, if required and in accordance with Section 2.4 hereof, a new Note is issued to the Assignee.  In connection with any such assignment (other than an assignment by a Lender to an Affiliate), the transferor Lender shall pay to Administrative Agent an administrative fee for processing such assignment in the amount of US$3,500.  If the Assignee is established under the laws of a jurisdiction other than Japan and is acting hereunder through a Lending Office in Japan, it shall deliver to Prologis and Administrative Agent a certificate from the relevant tax authorities certifying that any payments by a Loan Party to or for the account of the Assignee constitutes domestic source income (as provided for in Article 180 of the Income Tax Law (Law No. 33, 1965)) in accordance with Section 8.4.  Any assignment made during the continuation of a Guarantor Event of Default shall not be affected by any subsequent cure of such Guarantor Event of Default.

(d) No Assignee, Participant or other transferee of any Lender’s rights shall be entitled to receive any greater payment under Section 8.3 or 8.4 than such Lender would have been entitled to receive with respect to the rights transferred, unless such transfer is made with Prologis’ prior written consent or by reason of the provisions of Section 8.2, 8.3 or 8.4 requiring such Lender to designate a different Lending Office under certain circumstances or at a time when the circumstances giving rise to such greater payment did not exist.

89

 


 

(e) No Assignee of any rights and obligations under this Agreement shall be permitted to further assign less than all of such rights and obligations.  No participant in any rights and obligations under this Agreement shall be permitted to sell subparticipations of such rights and obligations.

(f) Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, so long as no Guarantor Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, no Lender shall be permitted to enter into an assignment of, or sell a participation interest in, its rights and obligations hereunder which would result in such Lender holding a Commitment without participants of less than JPY 350,000,000 unless as a result of a cancellation or reduction of the aggregate Commitments (or in the case of Administrative Agent, less than the Commitment of any other Lender); provided that no Lender shall be prohibited from assigning its entire Commitment so long as such assignment is otherwise permitted under this Section 9.6.

(g) Administrative Agent, acting solely for this purpose as an agent of Borrowers, shall maintain at its Lending Office a copy of each Transfer Supplement delivered to it and a register for the recordation of the names and addresses of Lenders, and the Commitments of, and principal amounts of the Loans and obligations related to Letter of Credit Usage owing to, each Lender pursuant to the terms hereof from time to time (each, a “Register”).  The entries in each Register shall be conclusive absent manifest error, and Borrowers, Administrative Agent, and Lenders may treat each Person whose name is recorded in a Register pursuant to the terms hereof as a Lender hereunder for all purposes of this Agreement, notwithstanding notice to the contrary.  Each Register shall be available for inspection by any party to this Agreement at any reasonable time and from time to time upon reasonable prior notice.

(h) Any Lender may at any time pledge or assign a security interest in any of its rights under this Agreement to secure obligations of such Lender to a Federal Reserve Bank or the central bank of any other country in which such Lender is organized; provided that no such pledge or assignment shall release such Lender from any of its obligations hereunder or substitute such pledgee or assignee for such Lender as a party hereto.

Section 9.7 Collateral.  Each of the Lenders represents to Administrative Agent and each of the other Lenders that it in good faith is not relying upon any “margin stock” (as defined in Regulation U issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System of the United States) as collateral in the extension or maintenance of the credit provided for in this Agreement.

Section 9.8 Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction; Judgment Currency.  (a)  THIS AGREEMENT AND THE OTHER LOAN DOCUMENTS AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES HEREUNDER AND THEREUNDER SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH AND BE GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK PURSUANT TO SECTION 5-1401 OF THE GENERAL OBLIGATIONS LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK (WITHOUT GIVING EFFECT TO THE PRINCIPLES THEREOF RELATING TO CONFLICTS OF LAW).

(b) Any legal action or proceeding with respect to this Agreement or any other Loan Document and any action for enforcement of any judgment in respect thereof may be brought in the courts of the State of New York sitting in New York County or of the United States of

90

 


 

America for the Southern District of New York, and, by execution and delivery of this Agreement, each Loan Party hereby accepts for itself and in respect of its property, generally and unconditionally, the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the aforesaid courts and appellate courts from any thereof.  Each Loan Party irrevocably consents to the service of process out of any of the aforementioned courts in any such action or proceeding by the hand delivery, or mailing of copies thereof by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, to the Loan Parties at its address set forth below or in the applicable Qualified Borrower Joinder Agreement.  Each Loan Party hereby irrevocably waives any objection which it may now or hereafter have to the laying of venue of any of the aforesaid actions or proceedings arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document brought in the courts referred to above and hereby further irrevocably waives and agrees not to plead or claim in any such court that any such action or proceeding brought in any such court has been brought in an inconvenient forum.  Nothing herein shall affect the right of Administrative Agent to serve process in any other manner permitted by law or to commence legal proceedings or otherwise proceed against any Loan Party in any other jurisdiction.

(c) If for the purpose of obtaining judgment in any court it is necessary to convert a sum due hereunder in one currency into another currency, the parties hereto agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so under applicable Law, that the rate of exchange used shall be the spot rate at which in accordance with normal banking procedures the first currency could be purchased in New York City with such other currency by the person obtaining such judgment on the Business Day preceding that on which final judgment is given.

(d) The parties agree, to the fullest extent that they may effectively do so under applicable Law, that the obligations of the Loan Parties to make payments in any currency of the principal of and interest on the Loans of any Borrower and any other amounts due from each Loan Party hereunder to Administrative Agent as provided herein (i) shall not be discharged or satisfied by any tender, or any recovery pursuant to any judgment (whether or not entered in accordance with Section 9.8(c)), in any currency other than the relevant currency, except to the extent that such tender or recovery shall result in the actual receipt by Administrative Agent at its relevant office on behalf of the Lenders of the full amount of the relevant currency expressed to be payable in respect of the principal of and interest on the Loans and all other amounts due hereunder (it being assumed for purposes of this clause (i) that Administrative Agent will convert any amount tendered or recovered into the relevant currency on the date of such tender or recovery), (ii) shall be enforceable as an alternative or additional cause of action for the purpose of recovering in the relevant currency the amount, if any, by which such actual receipt shall fall short of the full amount of the relevant currency so expressed to be payable and (iii) shall not be affected by an unrelated judgment being obtained for any other sum due under this Agreement.

Section 9.9 Counterparts; Integration; Effectiveness.  This Agreement may be signed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be an original, with the same effect as if the signatures thereto and hereto were upon the same instrument.  This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and understanding among the parties hereto and supersedes any prior agreements and understandings, oral or written, relating to the subject matter hereof.  This Agreement shall become effective upon receipt by Administrative Agent and the Loan Parties of counterparts hereof signed by each of the parties hereto (or, in the case of any party as to which an executed counterpart shall not have been received, receipt by Administrative Agent

91

 


 

in form satisfactory to it of telegraphic, telex or other written confirmation from such party of execution of a counterpart hereof by such party).

Section 9.10 WAIVER OF JURY TRIAL.  EACH LOAN PARTY, ADMINISTRATIVE AGENT AND THE LENDERS HEREBY IRREVOCABLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY LEGAL PROCEEDING ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TRANSACTIONS CONTEMPLATED HEREBY.

Section 9.11 Survival.  All indemnities set forth herein shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents and the making and repayment of the Loans hereunder.

Section 9.12 Limitation of Liability.  No claim may be made by any Loan Party or any other Person acting by or through Borrower against Administrative Agent or any Lender or the Affiliates, directors, officers, employees, attorneys or agents of any of them for any punitive damages in respect of any claim for breach of contract or any other theory of liability arising out of or related to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or by the other Loan Documents, or any act, omission or event occurring in connection therewith; and Borrower hereby waives, releases and agrees not to sue upon any claim for any such damages, whether or not accrued and whether or not known or suspected to exist in its favor.

Section 9.13 Recourse Obligation.  This Agreement and the Obligations hereunder are fully recourse to the Loan Parties.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no recourse under or upon any obligation, covenant, or agreement contained in this Agreement shall be had against any officer, director, shareholder or employee of any Loan Party or any general partner of any Loan Party (other than General Partner as the General Partner of Prologis), in each case except in the event of fraud or misappropriation of funds on the part of such officer, director, shareholder or employee or such general partner.

Section 9.14 Confidentiality.  Administrative Agent and each Lender shall use reasonable efforts to assure that information about the Loan Parties and their Consolidated Subsidiaries and non-Consolidated Subsidiaries, and the Properties thereof and their operations, affairs and financial condition, not generally disclosed to the public, which is furnished to Administrative Agent or any Lender pursuant to the provisions hereof or any other Loan Document is used only for the purposes of this Agreement and shall not be divulged to any Person other than Administrative Agent, the Lenders, and their Affiliates and respective officers, directors, employees and agents who are actively and directly participating in the evaluation, administration or enforcement of the Loans and other transactions between such Lender and the Loan Parties, except: (a) to their attorneys and accountants, (b) in connection with the enforcement of the rights and exercise of any remedies of Administrative Agent and the Lenders hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, (c) in connection with assignments and participations and the solicitation of prospective assignees and participants referred to in Section 9.6 hereof, who have agreed in writing to be bound by a confidentiality agreement substantially equivalent to the terms of this Section 9.14, and (d) as may otherwise be required or requested by any regulatory authority having jurisdiction over Administrative Agent or any Lender or by any applicable Law, rule, regulation or judicial process (but only to the extent not in violation, conflict or inconsistent with the applicable regulatory requirement, request, summons or

92

 


 

subpoena); provided that in the event a Lender receives a summons or subpoena to disclose confidential information to any party, such Lender shall, if legally permitted, endeavor to notify Prologis thereof as soon as possible after receipt of such request, summons or subpoena and the Loan Parties shall be afforded an opportunity to seek protective orders, or such other confidential treatment of such disclosed information, as the Loan Parties and Administrative Agent may deem reasonable.

Section 9.15 Defaulting Lenders.  Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:

(a) Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement shall be restricted as set forth in Section 9.5.

(b) Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Article VI or otherwise, and including any amounts made available to Administrative Agent by such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 9.4), shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to Administrative Agent hereunder; second, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Fronting Lender hereunder; third, if so determined by Administrative Agent or requested by the Fronting Lender, to be held as cash collateral for future funding obligations of such Defaulting Lender of any participation in any applicable Letter of Credit; fourth, if Prologis so requests (so long as no Default or 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, as determined by Administrative Agent; fifth, if so determined by Administrative Agent and Prologis, to be held in a non-interest bearing deposit account and released in order to satisfy obligations of such Defaulting Lender to fund Loans under this Agreement; sixth, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing to any applicable Lenders and the Fronting Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by such Lender or the Fronting Lender against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, so long as no Default or Event of Default exists, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing to any Loan Party as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by such Loan Party 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 or participations in Letters of Credit in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share and (y) such Loan or Letter of Credit draw was made at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 3.2 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and amounts owing in respect of such Letters of Credit owed to, all applicable non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loan of, or any such amounts owed to, such Defaulting Lender.  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 post cash collateral

93

 


 

pursuant to this Section 9.15(b) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents to the foregoing.

(c) such Defaulting Lender (x) shall be limited in its right to receive facility fees as provided in Section 2.7(a) and (y) shall be limited in its right to receive Letter of Credit Fees as provided in Section 2.7(b).

(d) During any period in which there is a Defaulting Lender, for purposes of computing the amount of the obligation of each non-Defaulting Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit pursuant to the terms hereof, the Pro Rata Share of each non-Defaulting Lender shall be computed without giving effect to the Commitment of such Defaulting Lender; provided that (i) each such reallocation shall be given effect only if, at the date the applicable Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, no Default or Event of Default exists; and (ii) the aggregate obligation of each non-Defaulting Lender to acquire, refinance or fund participations in Letters of Credit shall not exceed the unused Commitment of that non-Defaulting Lender.

(e) If Prologis, Administrative Agent and Fronting Lender agree in writing, each in their sole discretion, that a Defaulting Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender, 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 that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their Pro Rata Share (without giving effect to Section 9.15(d)), whereupon that 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 any Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that, subject to Section 9.20 and except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to non-Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.

(f) Upon any determination by Administrative Agent that any Lender constitutes a Defaulting Lender, Administrative Agent shall promptly provide Prologis with notice of such determination; provided that any failure to so notify Prologis of such determination shall not have any effect on the status of such Lender as a Defaulting Lender.

(b) In the event that during the Term any Tranche A Lender ceases to be a Qualified Institutional Investor (such Lender, a “New Non-QII Lender”), (i) such New Non-QII Lender shall immediately provide notice thereof to Administrative Agent and Prologis (to the extent such New Non-QII Lender has not already provided such notice pursuant to Section 9.17(a) above) and (ii) regardless of whether such New Non-QII Lender has actually delivered any such notice to Administrative Agent and/or Prologis, Prologis shall have the option, in its sole discretion, to cause such New Non-QII Lender to assign to a Qualified Institution all of the New Non-QII Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents in accordance with Section 9.6(c), subject to the terms and conditions of Section 9.6, as applicable (and, if requested by Prologis, Administrative Agent shall use best efforts to find a Qualified Institution that is willing to accept such assignment).

(c) In the event Prologis is unable or elects not to cause the assignment of the New Non-QII Lender’s rights and obligations under this Agreement, the Notes and the other Loan Documents, and provided that the total unused amount of Commitments with respect to all of the Lenders other than the New Non-QII Lender exceeds the total outstanding Loans of the New Non-QII Lender as of such date, at Prologis’s option, in its sole discretion, each of the Borrowers shall be deemed to have made a Base Rate Borrowing for the amount of such unused Commitments necessary to pay in full the total outstanding Loans of the New Non-QII Lender (and each of the Borrowers shall be deemed to have timely given a Notice of Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.2 and all other conditions to such Borrowing shall be deemed waived or satisfied) (unless any Lender has previously advised Administrative Agent and such Borrower that it is unable to make a Base Rate Loan and such notice has not been withdrawn, in which event each of the Borrowers shall be deemed to have made a Yen LIBOR Borrowing with an Interest Period of seven days (provided if such Interest Period is not available from all Lenders, such Borrower shall be deemed to have elected an Interest Period of 30 days) for the amount of such unused Commitments necessary to pay in full the total outstanding Loans of the New Non-QII Lender (and each of the Borrowers shall be deemed to have timely given a Notice of Borrowing pursuant to Section 2.2 and all other conditions to such Borrowing shall be deemed waived or satisfied)).  

95

(d) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Borrowers shall have the right at any time to pay in full the Loans of any New Non-QII Lender.

Section 9.18 USA Patriot Act.  Each Lender hereby notifies each Borrower that pursuant to the requirements of the Patriot Act, it is required to obtain, verify and record information that identifies the Loan Parties, which information includes the name and address of each Loan Party and other information that will allow such Lender to identify each Loan Party in accordance with the Patriot Act.

Section 9.19 Sanctions Representation by Lender Parties.  Each Lender Party (a) certifies to each Loan Party that it is not a Sanctioned Person and (b) agrees that if at any time it becomes a Sanctioned Person, it will promptly notify Prologis and Administrative Agent.

Section 9.20 Acknowledgement and Consent to Bail-In of EEA Financial Institutions.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in any Loan Document or in any other agreement, arrangement or understanding among any such parties, each party hereto acknowledges that any liability of any Lender that is an EEA Financial Institution arising under any Loan Document, to the extent such liability is unsecured, may be subject to the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of an EEA Resolution Authority and agrees and consents to, and acknowledges and agrees to be bound by:

(a) the application of any Write-Down and Conversion Powers by an EEA Resolution Authority to any such liabilities arising hereunder which may be payable to it by any Lender that is an EEA Financial Institution; and

(b) the effects of any Bail-in Action on any such liability, including, if applicable:

(i) a reduction in full or in part or cancellation of any such liability;

(ii) a conversion of all, or a portion of, such liability into shares or other instruments of ownership in such EEA Financial Institution, its parent undertaking, or a bridge institution that may be issued to it or otherwise conferred on it, and that such shares or other instruments of ownership will be accepted by it in lieu of any rights with respect to any such liability under this Agreement or any other Loan Document; or

(iii) the variation of the terms of such liability in connection with the exercise of the Write-Down and Conversion Powers of any EEA Resolution Authority.

Section 9.21 Sanctioned Lenders.

(a) If any Lender is a Sanctioned Lender, Prologis shall have the right, upon five Business Days’ notice to Administrative Agent to either (x) cause a bank, reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent, to offer to purchase the Loans of such Lender for an amount equal to such Lender’s outstanding Loans, and to become a Lender hereunder, or to obtain the agreement of one or more existing Lenders to offer to purchase the Loans of such Lender for such amount,

96

 


 

which offer such Lender is hereby required to accept, or (y) to repay in full all Loans then outstanding of such Lender, together with interest and all other amounts due thereon.

(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, no Sanctioned Lender shall have any right to approve or disapprove any amendment, waiver or consent hereunder, except that (unless otherwise required by applicable Law) no Commitment of such Lender may be increased or extended, the principal amount of the Loans owed to such Lender may not be reduced, the final maturity of such Loans may not be extended and this clause (b) may not be amended, in each case, without the consent of such Lender.

(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, if it would be unlawful for the Borrower, Administrative Agent or any assignee pursuant to Section 9.21(a) to make a payment to any Sanctioned Lender, then any amount that the Borrower, Administrative Agent or such assignee would otherwise pay to such Sanctioned Lender pursuant to this Agreement or any other Loan Document shall be held for such Sanctioned Lender pursuant to arrangements satisfactory to the Borrower, Administrative Agent and such assignee, in each case as applicable, and shall be paid to such Lender only when making such payment is no longer unlawful.

Section 9.22 Non-Bank Lender.  

(a) Any Non-Bank Lender shall, in the case where it enters into this Agreement, or where it determines the amount of interest or other claims pursuant to this Agreement, deliver to Borrower without delay the document set forth in article 17 of the Money Lending Business Act pursuant to such provision.

(b) Any Non-Bank Lender shall immediately deliver to the Borrower the document set forth in article 18 of the Money Lending Business Act as required when it receives any payment for all or part of any Loans.  In the case where any Non-Bank Lender is required to deliver such document to the Borrower under the Money Lending Business Act, such Non-Bank Lender shall immediately deliver the same each time it receives such payment.

(c) In the case where any Non-Bank Lender assigns all or part of any Loans to a third party pursuant to Section 9.6, it shall send the notification in accordance with article 24 of the Money Lending Business Act.

(d) Any Non-Bank Lender shall, regardless of such Lender’s entrustment to Administrative Agent in accordance with this Agreement, perform the Non-Bank Lender’s obligations against the Borrower under clauses (a), (b) and (c) above and all the other obligations of the Non-Bank Lender under the Money Lending Business Act on its own responsibility, and Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for any performance of those obligations.

(e) Any assignee of any Loans from the Non-Bank Lender shall perform the obligation under paragraph 2 of article 24 of the Money Lending Business Act on its own responsibility, and Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for any performance of those obligations.

(f) Any Non-Bank Lender shall, promptly after the execution of this Agreement, notify in writing to Administrative Agent of the matters Administrative Agent should notify or disclose to

97

 


 

the Borrower in accordance with the Money Lending Business Act (including those matters under article 21 of the Money Lending Business Act, but excluding any matter of which Administrative Agent has prior knowledge).  In the case of any change related to such matters, the Non-Bank Lender shall immediately provide Administrative Agent with written notice of the details of such changes.

(g) All expenses arising from the performance by a Non-Bank Lender of its duties under the Money Lending Business Act (including the duties as set out in the preceding clauses (a) through (f)) shall be borne by such Non-Bank Lender as long as not in violation of Laws, and in the case where the Borrower, a Lender other than such Non-Bank Lender or Administrative Agent bears any such expenses on behalf of such Non-Bank Lender, such Non-Bank Lender shall immediately pay such amount in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement upon request by Administrative Agent.

FORM OF QUALIFIED BORROWER JOINDER AGREEMENT

THIS QUALIFIED BORROWER JOINDER AGREEMENT (this “Joinder Agreement”), dated as of _________________, 20___, is entered into between ______________________ Y.K., a tokurei yugen kaisha, established under the laws of Japan (the “Qualified Borrower”) and the Guarantors (as defined below) under the Fifth Amended and Restated Revolving Credit Agreement, dated as of February 16, 2017, among PROLOGIS MARUNOUCHI FINANCE INVESTMENT LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, PROLOGIS, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Prologis”), PROLOGIS, INC., a Maryland corporation (together with Prologis, each a “Guarantor” and collectively the “Guarantors”), SUMITOMO MITSUI BANKING CORPORATION, as Administrative Agent (the “Administrative Agent”) and the lenders listed on the signature pages thereof (the “Lenders”) (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the “Credit Agreement”).  All capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the meanings set forth in the Credit Agreement.

The Guarantors desire the Qualified Borrower to become, and the Qualified Borrower desires to become, a “Qualified Borrower” pursuant to Section 2.17 of the Credit Agreement.

Accordingly, the Qualified Borrower hereby agrees as follows with the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lenders:

1. The Qualified Borrower hereby acknowledges, agrees and confirms that, by its execution of this Joinder Agreement, it will be deemed to be a party to the Credit Agreement and a Qualified Borrower for all purposes of the Credit Agreement, and shall have all of the obligations of a Qualified Borrower thereunder as if it had executed the Credit Agreement.  The Qualified Borrower hereby ratifies, as of the date hereof, and agrees to be bound by, all of the terms, provisions and conditions contained in the Credit Agreement applicable to it as a Qualified Borrower.

2. In order to induce the Administrative Agent and each of the other Lenders that is or may become a party to the Credit Agreement to make the Loans, the Qualified Borrower makes the following representations and warranties as of the date hereof.  Such representations and warranties shall survive the effectiveness of the Credit Agreement and this Joinder Agreement, the execution and delivery of the other Loan Documents and the making of the Loans.

 

a.

Existence and Power.  The Qualified Borrower is a tokurei yugen kaisha, duly formed under the laws of Japan.  The Qualified Borrower has all powers and all material governmental licenses, authorizations, consents and approvals required to own its property and assets and carry on its business as now conducted or as it presently proposes to conduct and has been duly qualified and is in good standing or validly existing in every jurisdiction in which the failure to be so qualified and/or in good standing or validly existing is likely to have a Material Adverse Effect.

B-1-1

 


 

 

b.

Power and Authority.  

 

i.

The Qualified Borrower has the requisite power and authority to execute, deliver and carry out the terms and provisions of each of the Loan Documents to which it is a party and has taken all necessary action, if any, to authorize the execution and delivery on behalf of the Qualified Borrower and the performance by the Qualified Borrower of the Loan Documents to which it is a party.  

 

ii.

The Qualified Borrower has duly executed and delivered each Loan Document to which it is a party in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement and this Joinder Agreement, and each such Loan Document constitutes, or will constitute, the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Qualified Borrower, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable Debtor Relief Laws and general principles of equity, whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.  

 

c.

No Violation. Neither the execution, delivery or performance by or on behalf of the Qualified Borrower of the Loan Documents to which it is a party, nor compliance by the Qualified Borrower with the terms and provisions thereof nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated by such Loan Documents, (i) will materially contravene any applicable provision of any law, statute, rule, regulation, order, writ, injunction or decree of any court or governmental instrumentality, (ii) will materially conflict with or result in any breach of, any of the terms, covenants, conditions or provisions of, or constitute a default under, or result in the creation or imposition of (or the obligation to create or impose) any Lien upon any of the property or assets of the Qualified Borrower pursuant to the terms of any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, or other agreement or other instrument to which the Qualified Borrower (or of any partnership of which the Qualified Borrower is a partner) is a party or by which it or any of its property or assets is bound or to which it is subject (except for such breaches and defaults under loan agreements which the lenders thereunder have agreed to forbear pursuant to valid forbearance agreements), or (iii) will cause a material default by the Qualified Borrower under any Organization Document of any Person in which the Qualified Borrower has an interest, or cause a material default under the Qualified Borrower’s Organization Documents, the consequences of which conflict, breach or default would have a Material Adverse Effect, or result in or require the creation or imposition of any Lien whatsoever upon any Property (except as contemplated herein).

 

d.

Litigation.  Except as previously disclosed by the Qualified Borrower in writing to the Lenders, there is no action, suit or proceeding pending against or, to the knowledge of the Qualified Borrower, threatened against or affecting, (i) the Qualified Borrower, (ii) the Loan Documents or any of the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents or (iii) any of its assets, before any court or arbitrator or any governmental body, agency or official in which there is a reasonable possibility of an adverse decision which could, individually, or in the

B-1-2

 


 

 

aggregate have a Material Adverse Effect or which in any manner draws into question the validity of the Credit Agreement, this Joinder Agreement or the other Loan Documents.  As of the date hereof, no such action, suit or proceeding exists.

3. The Guarantors confirm that, notwithstanding the joinder of the Qualified Borrower to the Credit Agreement, all of their obligations under the Credit Agreement and the Guaranty are and shall continue to be in full force and effect.  The Guarantors further confirm that immediately upon the Qualified Borrower becoming a “Qualified Borrower” under the Credit Agreement, the term “Guaranteed Obligations,” as used in the Guaranty, shall include all obligations of the Qualified Borrower under the Credit Agreement and the Notes executed by the Qualified Borrower.  The Guarantors acknowledge and agree that each of them has guaranteed all obligations of the Qualified Borrower in accordance with the terms of the Guaranty.

4. The Qualified Borrower hereby agrees that, upon becoming a “Qualified Borrower,” it will be severally liable for all Obligations in respect of any Borrowing advanced to it by the Lenders as set forth in the Credit Agreement.

B-2-1

 


 

b.Power and Authority.  

i.The Qualified Borrower has the requisite power and authority to execute, deliver and carry out the terms and provisions of each of the Loan Documents to which it is a party and has taken all necessary action, if any, to authorize the execution and delivery on behalf of the Qualified Borrower and the performance by the Qualified Borrower of the Loan Documents to which it is a party.  

ii.The Qualified Borrower has duly executed and delivered each Loan Document to which it is a party in accordance with the terms of the Credit Agreement and this Joinder Agreement, and each such Loan Document constitutes, or will constitute, the legal, valid and binding obligation of the Qualified Borrower, enforceable in accordance with its terms, subject to applicable Debtor Relief Laws and general principles of equity, whether such enforceability is considered in a proceeding in equity or at law.  

c.No Violation.  Neither the execution, delivery or performance by or on behalf of the Qualified Borrower of the Loan Documents to which it is a party, nor compliance by the Qualified Borrower with the terms and provisions thereof nor the consummation of the transactions contemplated by such Loan Documents, (i) will materially contravene any applicable provision of any law, statute, rule, regulation, order, writ, injunction or decree of any court or governmental instrumentality, (ii) will materially conflict with or result in any breach of, any of the terms, covenants, conditions or provisions of, or constitute a default under, or result in the creation or imposition of (or the obligation to create or impose) any Lien upon any of the property or assets of the Qualified Borrower pursuant to the terms of any indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, or other agreement or other instrument to which the Qualified Borrower (or of any partnership of which the Qualified Borrower is a partner) is a party or by which it or any of its property or assets is bound or to which it is subject (except for such breaches and defaults under loan agreements which the lenders thereunder have agreed to forbear pursuant to valid forbearance agreements), or (iii) will cause a material default by the Qualified Borrower under any Organization Document of any Person in which the Qualified Borrower has an interest, or cause a material default under the Qualified Borrower’s organizational documents or its Asset Liquidation Plan, the consequences of which conflict, breach or default would have a Material Adverse Effect, or result in or require the creation or imposition of any Lien whatsoever upon any Property (except as contemplated herein).

d.Litigation.  Except as previously disclosed by the Qualified Borrower in writing to the Lenders, there is no action, suit or proceeding pending against or, to the knowledge of the Qualified Borrower, threatened against or affecting, (i) the Qualified Borrower, (ii) the Loan Documents or any of the transactions contemplated by the Loan Documents or (iii) any of its assets, before any court or arbitrator or any governmental body, agency or official in which there is a reasonable possibility of an adverse decision which could, individually, or in the aggregate have a Material Adverse Effect or which in any manner draws into question the validity of the Credit Agreement, this Joinder Agreement or the other Loan Documents.  As of the date hereof, no such action, suit or proceeding exists.

3.The Guarantors confirm that, notwithstanding the joinder of the Qualified Borrower to the Credit Agreement, all of their obligations under the Credit Agreement and the Guaranty are and

B-2-2

 


 

shall continue to be in full force and effect.  The Guarantors further confirm that immediately upon the Qualified Borrower becoming a “Qualified Borrower” under the Credit Agreement, the term “Guaranteed Obligations,” as used in the Guaranty, shall include all obligations of the Qualified Borrower under the Credit Agreement and the Notes executed by the Qualified Borrower.  The Guarantors acknowledge and agree that each of them has guaranteed all obligations of the Qualified Borrower in accordance with the terms of the Guaranty.

4.The Qualified Borrower hereby agrees that, upon becoming a “Qualified Borrower,” it will be severally liable for all Obligations in respect of any Borrowing advanced to it by the Lenders as set forth in the Credit Agreement.
