Section 2.2Euro Fronting Loans.

Section 2.2.1Euro Fronting Loans.  Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 2.2, upon a request for a Euro Borrowing in an Alternative Currency or to a Foreign Borrower in compliance with Section 2.1, each Fronting Lender agrees, subject to the limitations set forth below, to fund its Fronting Portion of such Euro Borrowing in the requested currency with respect to such Euro Borrowing and in the amount of each Euro Non-Qualified Lender’s Applicable Tranche Percentage for such Euro Borrowing (each a “Euro Fronting Loan”), notwithstanding the fact that, after giving effect to such funding, all Euro Fronting Loans of such Fronting Lender, when aggregated with the Euro Loans of such Fronting Lender, may exceed the amount of such Fronting Lender’s Euro Commitment; provided that (a) after giving effect to any Euro Fronting Loan, the aggregate Dollar Equivalent amount of all Fronting Loans funded by such Fronting Lender shall not exceed the Fronting Commitment of such Fronting Lender and (b) such Fronting Lender shall not be a Euro Non-Qualified Lender with respect to such Euro Borrowing.  Immediately upon the making of a Euro Fronting Loan, the applicable Euro Non-Qualified Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from such Fronting Lender a risk participation in 100% of such Euro Fronting Loan.  The obligation of each Euro Non-Qualified Lender to make Euro Loans in an Alternative Currency or to a Foreign Borrower under Section 2.1 shall be satisfied by its purchase of a risk participation in the applicable Euro Fronting Loan; it being understood that no Euro Non-Qualified Lender shall be responsible for, or be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender or otherwise in breach of this Agreement as a result of, the failure by a Fronting Lender to make a Fronting Loan in which such Euro Non-Qualified Lender is to purchase a risk participation.

Section 2.2.2Election of Fronting Lenders.  (a)  Upon a request for a Euro Borrowing in accordance with Section 2.3 in an Alternative Currency or to a Foreign Borrower with respect to which there are Euro Non-Qualified Lenders, there shall be a Fronting Lender Election.  If, based on the limitations set forth in the proviso to the first sentence of Section 2.2.1 or the last two sentences of Section 2.2.2(b) (the “Euro Fronting Limitations”), the Fronting Commitments are not sufficient to fund all of the requested Euro Fronting Loans in such Alternative Currency or to such Foreign Borrower, then the applicable Euro Borrower shall, within one Business Day after notice by Administrative Agent of such insufficiency, decrease the amount of the requested Euro Borrowing to the amount that would result in utilization of the maximum available Fronting Commitments, subject to the Euro Fronting Limitations and, if applicable, after giving effect to the following sentence. If one or more Euro Lenders are Euro Non-Qualified Lenders solely because such Euro Lenders are not capable of making requested Euro Loans to a Foreign Borrower without the imposition of withholding taxes (each a “Euro Specified Lender”), such Borrower may, within one Business Day after notice by Administrative Agent of the insufficiency, notify Administrative Agent that it will accept responsibility for such withholding taxes with respect to such Euro Borrowing, in which case (i) Administrative Agent and the Fronting Lenders shall allocate the available Fronting Commitments (A) first, to cover any portion of such Borrowing that will not be funded by a Euro Lender because it is a Non-Qualified Lender for a reason other than potential withholding taxes and (B) then, to cover the remaining amount of such Borrowing, in each case up to the maximum available Fronting Commitments, subject to the Euro Fronting Limitations, (ii) the participations in any Fronting Loans made pursuant to clause (i)(B) above shall be allocated among the Euro Specified Lenders pro rata according to their respective Euro Commitments, (iii) each Euro Specified Lender shall

 

 

42

 

16257277_9


 

fund its pro rata share of such Borrowing to the extent not funded by the Fronting Lenders and (iv) such Borrower shall pay or reimburse each Euro Specified Lender for any withholding tax arising from such Borrowing in accordance with Section 7.1.

(b)Each Non-Qualified Japan Lender with respect to the Euro Tranche (i) represents and warrants to each applicable Fronting Lender that (A) the purchase of a risk participation in such Fronting Loan by such Non-Qualified Japan Lender and (B) the funding of such risk participation in such Fronting Loan by such Non-Qualified Japan Lender will not violate any applicable Law (including any Law of Japan), and (ii) agrees to indemnify such Fronting Lender for all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses (including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for such Fronting Lender) incurred by such Fronting Lender or asserted against such Fronting Lender arising from any Fronting Loan made by such Fronting Lender pursuant to Section 2.2.1.  Without limiting the foregoing, no Fronting Lender shall be obligated to make any Fronting Loan pursuant to Section 2.2.1 if such Fronting Lender determines that any representation or warranty of the applicable Non-Qualified Japan Lender in clause (i) of the preceding sentence is not accurate. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.2.2(b), no Fronting Lender shall make a Fronting Loan in which a Non-Qualified Japan Lender would be required to purchase a risk participation if such Non-Qualified Japan Lender has notified such Fronting Lender at least two Business Days prior to the proposed date of borrowing (with copies to Administrative Agent and Prologis) that, as a result of a Change in Law, such Lender cannot make the representation and warranty set forth in the first sentence of this Section 2.2.2(b).

Section 2.2.3Refinancing of the Euro Fronting Loans.

(a)(i)       On the Trigger Date, Administrative Agent shall notify each Euro Non-Qualified Lender of its obligation to fund its participation in each applicable Euro Fronting Loan.  Each applicable Euro Non-Qualified Lender shall make the amount of its participation in each applicable Euro Fronting Loan specified in such notice available to Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender at Administrative Agent’s Office for payments in the same currency as the applicable Euro Fronting Loan not later than 11:00 a.m. on the Business Day specified in such notice.

     (ii)      To the extent that a Euro Non-Qualified Lender that has a risk participation in a Euro Fronting Loan assigns all or part of its interest in such risk participation under Section 14.6 to a Euro Qualified Lender for purposes of such Euro Fronting Loan, then such Euro Qualified Lender shall make the amount of its assigned participation in such Euro Fronting Loan available to Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender at Administrative Agent’s Office for payments in the same currency as the applicable Euro Fronting Loan not later than 1:00 p.m., on the third Business Day following the effective date of the assignment.

(b)If any applicable Euro Lender fails to make available to any Fronting Lender any amount required to be paid by such Euro Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.2.3 by the time specified in Section 2.2.3(a), such Fronting Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Euro Lender (acting through Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount in the same currency as the applicable Euro Fronting Loan with interest thereon for the period

 

 

43

 

16257277_9


 

from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to such Fronting Lender at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect.  A certificate of a Fronting Lender submitted to any applicable Euro Lender (through Administrative Agent) with respect to any amount owing under this clause (b) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(c)Each applicable Euro Lender’s obligation to purchase and fund risk participations in Euro Fronting Loans pursuant to this Section 2.2.3 shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Euro Lender may have against the applicable Fronting Lender, any Euro Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or (iii) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.  No such funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of any Euro Borrower to repay any Fronting Lender, together with interest as provided herein.

(d)At any time after any Euro Lender has purchased and funded a risk participation in a Euro Fronting Loan, if the applicable Fronting Lender receives any payment on account of such Euro Fronting Loan, such Fronting Lender will distribute to such Euro Lender such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Euro Lender’s participation was funded) in the same funds and currency as those received by such Fronting Lender.

(e)If any payment received by any Fronting Lender (and paid to a Euro Lender) in respect of principal of or interest on any Euro Fronting Loan is required to be returned by such Fronting Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 14.5 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such Fronting Lender in its discretion), such Euro Lender shall pay to such Fronting Lender in the applicable currency of such Euro Fronting Loan the amount of such payment in respect of such Euro Fronting Loan on demand of Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate.  Administrative Agent will make such demand upon the request of the applicable Fronting Lender.  The obligations of Euro Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.

Section 2.2.4Payments for Account of the Applicable Fronting Lender. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, until the applicable Euro Lender funds its risk participation pursuant to this Section 2.2 to refinance such Euro Lender’s applicable Euro Fronting Loan, all payments made hereunder in respect of the portion of any Euro Loan that was funded in part by a Fronting Lender shall be solely for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender.

Section 2.2.5Defaulting Lender.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Fronting Lender shall be required to make a Euro Fronting Loan with respect to which there is a Euro Non-Qualified Lender that is a Defaulting Lender at the time of the receipt by Administrative Agent of the applicable Euro Loan Notice or at any time prior to the funding of such Euro Fronting Loan.  In addition, to the extent (a) a Euro Fronting Loan is outstanding, (b) a Euro Non-Qualified Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender and (c) the applicable Fronting Lender makes a

 

 

44

 

16257277_9


 

demand for repayment to the applicable Euro Borrower, then such Euro Borrower shall repay such Euro Fronting Loan (i) on or before the earlier of (A) 30 days following receipt of such demand or (B) the fifth day following the last day of the applicable Interest Period ending after receipt of such demand or (ii) if no Interest Period is in effect with respect to such Euro Fronting Loan, within ten days following receipt of such demand.  If any such Euro Fronting Loan is not repaid in full on the last day of an Interest Period (if applicable or required under clause (i)(B) above), subject to Section 6.5.2, such Euro Fronting Loan shall bear interest at the Money Market Rate plus the Applicable Margin until such payment is made hereunder.

Section 2.3Euro Borrowings, Conversions and Continuations of Euro Loans.

Section 2.3.1Procedures for Euro Borrowings. Each Euro Borrowing, each conversion of Euro Loans denominated in Dollars from one Type of Dollar-denominated Loans to the other and each continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans shall be made upon the requesting Euro Borrower’s irrevocable notice to Administrative Agent, which may be given by (A) telephone or (B) a Euro Loan Notice; provided that any telephonic notice must be confirmed immediately by delivery to Administrative Agent of a Euro Loan Notice. Each such notice must be received by Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. (a) three Business Days prior to the requested date of any Euro Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of, Eurocurrency Rate Loans (other than a Euro Borrowing denominated in Yen), (b) four Business Days prior to the requested date of any Euro Borrowing denominated in Yen or any continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans denominated in Yen, and (c) one Business Day prior to the requested date of any Euro Borrowing of Base Rate Loans or of any conversion of Eurocurrency Rate Loans denominated in Dollars to Base Rate Loans. Each Euro Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount permitted by Section 6.1.1. Each Euro Borrowing of or conversion to Base Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount permitted by Section 6.1.1. Each Euro Loan Notice shall specify (i) the jurisdiction of the applicable Euro Borrower and whether such Borrower is a Foreign Borrower, (ii) whether the applicable Euro Borrower is requesting a Euro Borrowing, a conversion of Euro Loans denominated in Dollars from one Type of Dollar-denominated Loans to the other, or a continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans, (iii) the requested date of the Euro Borrowing, conversion or continuation, as the case may be (which shall be a Business Day), (iv) the principal amount of Euro Loans to be borrowed, converted or continued, (v) the Type of Euro Loans to be borrowed or to which existing Euro Loans denominated in Dollars are to be converted, (vi) if applicable, the duration of the Interest Period with respect thereto and (vii) the currency of the Euro Loans to be borrowed or continued. If the requesting Euro Borrower fails to specify a currency in a Euro Loan Notice requesting a Borrowing, then the Loans so requested shall be made in Euro. If the requesting Euro Borrower fails to specify a Type of Euro Loan in a Euro Loan Notice or fails to give a timely notice requesting a conversion or continuation, then (A) if the applicable Euro Loans are denominated in Dollars, such Euro Loans shall be made as, or converted to, Base Rate Loans; and (B) if the applicable Euro Loans are denominated in a currency other than Dollars, such Euro Loans shall be made in the currency requested or, in the case of a continuation, continued in the same currency, as Eurocurrency Rate Loans with an Interest Period of one month. Any automatic conversion to Base Rate Loans shall be effective as of the last day of the Interest Period then in effect with respect to the applicable Eurocurrency Rate Loans. If the requesting Euro Borrower requests a Euro Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of, Eurocurrency Rate Loans in any such Euro Loan Notice, but fails to specify an Interest Period, it

 

 

45

 

16257277_9


 

will be deemed to have specified an Interest Period of one month. No Euro Loan may be converted into or continued as a Euro Loan denominated in a different currency, but instead must be repaid in the original currency of such Euro Loan and reborrowed in the other currency.

Section 2.3.2Funding of Euro Loans.  Following receipt of a Euro Loan Notice, Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Euro Lender of the amount (and currency) of its Applicable Tranche Percentage of the applicable Euro Borrowings, and if no timely notice of a conversion or continuation is provided by the applicable Euro Borrower, Administrative Agent shall notify each Euro Lender of the details of any automatic conversion to Base Rate Loans or continuations of Euro Loans denominated in a currency other than Dollars, in each case as described in Section 2.3.1.  In the case of a Euro Borrowing, each Euro Qualified Lender and the applicable Fronting Lender, if any, shall make the amount of its Euro Loan available to Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds at Administrative Agent’s Office for the applicable currency not later than 11:00 a.m., in the case of any Euro Loan denominated in any Euro or Sterling, and not later than the Applicable Time specified by Administrative Agent in the case of any Euro Loan in an Alternative Currency, other than Sterling, under the Euro Tranche, in each case on the Business Day specified in the applicable Euro Loan Notice.  Upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 8.2, Administrative Agent shall make all funds so received available to the applicable Euro Borrower in like funds as received by Administrative Agent either by (a) crediting the account of such Euro Borrower on the books of Administrative Agent with the amount of such funds or (b) wire transfer of such funds, in each case in accordance with instructions provided to (and reasonably acceptable to) Administrative Agent by such Euro Borrower.

Section 2.3.3Certain Continuations and Conversions.  Except as otherwise provided herein, a Eurocurrency Rate Loan may be continued or converted only on the last day of an Interest Period for such Eurocurrency Rate Loan.  During the existence of a Default, the Euro Required Lenders may at their option, by notice to the Euro Borrowers (which notice may be revoked at the option of the Euro Required Lenders notwithstanding any provision of Section 14.1), declare that (a) no Euro Loans denominated in Dollars may be requested as, converted to or continued as Eurocurrency Rate Loans, and (b) no Euro Loans denominated in any other currency may be requested or continued as Eurocurrency Rate Loans, other than as Eurocurrency Rate Loans with an Interest Period of one month.

Section 2.3.4Notice of Rates.  Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each applicable Euro Borrower and Euro Lender of the interest rate applicable to any Interest Period for Eurocurrency Rate Loans upon determination of such interest rate. At any time that Base Rate Loans are outstanding, Administrative Agent shall notify the applicable Euro Borrower and Euro Lenders of any change in Administrative Agent’s “prime rate” used in determining the Base Rate for Euro Loans denominated in Dollars promptly following the public announcement of such change.

Section 2.3.5Number of Interest Periods.  After giving effect to all Euro Borrowings, all conversions of Euro Loans from one Type to the other, and all continuations of Euro Loans as the same Type, there shall not be more than 15 Interest Periods in effect with respect to all Loans under all Tranches.

Section 2.4   Euro Prepayments.

Section 2.4.1Prepayments of Loans.  Each Euro Borrower may, upon notice to Administrative Agent, at any time or from time to time voluntarily prepay Euro Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (a) such notice must be in a form acceptable to Administrative Agent and be received by Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m., (i) three Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Eurocurrency Rate Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency, (ii) two Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Eurocurrency Rate Loans denominated in Euros and (iii) on the date of prepayment of any Base Rate Loans or Substitute Rate Loans; and (b) any prepayment of Euro Loans shall be in a principal amount permitted by Section 6.1.2 or, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding.  Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the Type(s) of Euro Loans to be prepaid and, if Eurocurrency Rate Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of such Eurocurrency Rate Loans.  Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Euro Lender and each Euro Fronting Lender, as applicable, of its receipt of each such notice, and of the amount of such Euro Lender’s Applicable Tranche Percentage of such prepayment.  If such notice is given by such Euro Borrower, then such Euro Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein.  Any prepayment of a Eurocurrency Rate Loan shall be accompanied by all accrued interest on the amount prepaid, together with any additional amount required pursuant to Section 7.5.  Subject to Sections 2.2.4 and 6.8.3, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Euro Loans of Euro Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

Section 2.4.2Prepayments Due to Currency Fluctuations.  Administrative Agent shall calculate the Euro Equivalent of the Euro Total Outstandings on each applicable Revaluation Date.  If on the Revaluation Date that occurs on the first Business Day of each calendar month, or such other times as Administrative Agent may determine in its reasonable discretion, such calculation reflects that, as of such Revaluation Date, the Euro Equivalent of the Euro Total Outstandings exceeds an amount equal to 105% of the Euro Aggregate Commitments then in effect, then, within five Business Days after notice of such calculation from Administrative Agent to Prologis, Euro Borrowers shall prepay the Euro Loans in an aggregate amount sufficient to reduce the Euro Equivalent of such Euro Total Outstandings as of such date of payment to an amount not exceeding 100% of the Euro Aggregate Commitments then in effect. Subject to Section 2.2.4, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Euro Loans of Euro Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

Section 2.4.3Other Prepayments.  If, on any date other than the Maturity Date, the Euro Equivalent of the Euro Total Outstandings exceeds the Euro Aggregate Commitments then in effect and such excess is not due to a currency exchange fluctuation covered under Section 2.4.2, then, within two Business Days after notice from Administrative Agent to Prologis, Euro Borrowers shall prepay the Euro Loans in an aggregate amount sufficient to reduce the Euro Equivalent of such Euro Total Outstandings as of such date of payment to an amount not to exceed the Euro Aggregate Commitments then in effect, without regard to any minimum or multiples specified in Section 6.1.2 with respect to prepayments. Subject to Section 2.2.4, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Euro Loans of Euro Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 3.2.2(b), no Fronting Lender shall make a Fronting Loan in which a Non-Qualified Japan Lender would be required to purchase a risk participation if such Non-Qualified Japan Lender has notified such Fronting Lender at least two Business Days prior to the proposed date of borrowing (with copies to Administrative Agent and Prologis) that, as a result of a Change in Law, such Lender cannot make the representation and warranty set forth in the first sentence of this Section 3.2.2(b).

Section 3.2.3Refinancing of the U.S. Fronting Loans.

(a)(i)       On the Trigger Date, Administrative Agent shall notify each U.S. Non-Qualified Lender of its obligation to fund its participation in each applicable U.S. Fronting Loan.  Each applicable U.S. Non-Qualified Lender shall make the amount of its participation in each applicable U.S. Fronting Loan specified in such notice available to Administrative Agent in

(d)At any time after any U.S. Lender has purchased and funded a risk participation in a U.S. Fronting Loan, if the applicable Fronting Lender receives any payment on account of such U.S. Fronting Loan, such Fronting Lender will distribute to such U.S. Lender such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such U.S. Lender’s participation was funded) in the same funds and currency as those received by such Fronting Lender.

(e)If any payment received by any Fronting Lender (and paid to a U.S. Lender) in respect of principal of or interest on any U.S. Fronting Loan is required to be returned by such Fronting Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 14.5 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such Fronting Lender in its discretion), such U.S. Lender shall pay to such Fronting Lender in the applicable currency of such Fronting Loan the amount of such payment in respect of such U.S. Fronting Loan on demand of Administrative Agent, plus interest

Section 3.4.2Prepayments Due to Currency Fluctuations.  Administrative Agent shall calculate the Dollar Equivalent of the U.S. Total Outstandings on each applicable Revaluation Date.  If on the Revaluation Date that occurs on the first Business Day of each calendar month, or such other times as Administrative Agent may determine in its reasonable discretion, such calculation reflects that, as of such Revaluation Date, the Dollar Equivalent of the U.S. Total Outstandings exceeds an amount equal to 105% of the U.S. Aggregate Commitments then in effect, then, within five Business Days after notice of such calculation from Administrative

Subject to Section 3.2.4, each such prepayment shall be applied to the U.S. Loans of U.S. Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

ARTICLE IV
YEN COMMITMENTS AND YEN LOANS

Section 4.1   Yen Loans.  Subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein (including Section 4.2), each Yen Lender severally agrees to make loans (each such loan, a “Yen Loan”) under the Yen Tranche to each Yen Borrower in Yen or in one or more Alternative Currencies of the Yen Tranche, from time to time, on any Business Day during the Availability Period, in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time outstanding the amount of such Yen Lender’s Yen Commitment; provided that after giving effect to any Yen Borrowing, (a) the Yen Total Outstandings shall not exceed the Yen Aggregate Commitments and (b) the Yen Credit Exposure of any Yen Lender shall not exceed such Yen Lender’s Yen Commitment, provided, further, that any Yen Loan denominated in Yen may only be made to a Yen Borrower organized under the Laws of Japan or that is qualified to do business in Japan as a foreign entity.  Within the limits of each Yen Lender’s Yen Commitment, Yen Borrowers may borrow under this Section 4.1, prepay under Section 4.4 and reborrow under this Section 4.1.  Yen Loans may be Base Rate Loans (if denominated in Dollars), ABR Rate Loans (if denominated in Yen), Eurocurrency Rate Loans or, solely upon the occurrence of an event described in Section 7.2 or 7.3, Substitute Rate Loans, as further provided herein.  Each Yen Lender that makes a Yen Loan, other than a Yen Fronting Loan, hereby represents and warrants that it is not a Non-Qualified Japan Lender.

Section 4.2   Yen Fronting Loans.

Section 4.2.1Yen Fronting Loans.  Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 4.2, upon a request for a Yen Borrowing in an Alternative Currency, consisting of ABR Rate Loans or to a Foreign Borrower in compliance with Section 4.1, each Fronting Lender agrees, subject to the limitations set forth below, to fund its Fronting Portion of such Yen Borrowing in the requested currency with respect to such Yen Borrowing and in the amount of each Yen Non-Qualified Lender’s Applicable Tranche Percentage for such Yen Borrowing (each a “Yen Fronting Loan”), notwithstanding the fact that, after giving effect to such funding, all

 

 

54

 

16257277_9


 

Yen Fronting Loans of such Fronting Lender, when aggregated with the Yen Loans of such Fronting Lender,  may exceed the amount of such Fronting Lender’s Yen Commitment; provided that (a) after giving effect to any Yen Fronting Loan, the aggregate Dollar Equivalent amount of all Fronting Loans funded by such Fronting Lender shall not exceed the Fronting Commitment of such Fronting Lender, and (b) such Fronting Lender shall not be a Yen Non-Qualified Lender with respect to such Yen Borrowing. Immediately upon the making of a Yen Fronting Loan, the applicable Yen Non-Qualified Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from such Fronting Lender a risk participation in 100% of such Yen Fronting Loan.  The obligation of each Yen Non-Qualified Lender to make Yen Loans in an Alternative Currency or consisting of ABR Rate Loans or to a Foreign Borrower under Section 4.1 shall be satisfied by its purchase of a risk participation in the applicable Yen Fronting Loan; it being understood that no Yen Non-Qualified Lender shall be responsible for, or be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender or otherwise in breach of this Agreement as a result of, the failure by a Fronting Lender to make a Fronting Loan in which such Yen Non-Qualified Lender is to purchase a risk participation.

Section 4.2.2Election of Fronting Lenders.  (a) Upon a request for a Yen Borrowing in accordance with Section 4.3 in an Alternative Currency or consisting of ABR Rate Loans or to a Foreign Borrower with respect to which there are Yen Non-Qualified Lenders, there shall be a Fronting Lender Election.  If, based on the limitations set forth in the proviso to the first sentence of Section 4.2.1 or the last two sentences of Section 4.2.2(b) (the “Yen Fronting Limitations”), the Fronting Commitments are not sufficient to fund all of the requested Yen Fronting Loans in such Alternative Currency or consisting of ABR Rate Loans or to a Foreign Borrower, then the applicable Yen Borrower shall, within one Business Day after notice by Administrative Agent of such insufficiency, decrease the amount of the requested Yen Borrowing to the amount that would result in utilization of the maximum available Fronting Commitments subject to the Yen Fronting Limitations and, if applicable, after giving effect to the following sentence. If one or more Yen Lenders are Yen Non-Qualified Lenders solely because such Yen Lenders are not capable of making requested Yen Loans to a Foreign Borrower without the imposition of withholding taxes (each a “Yen Specified Lender”), such Borrower may, within one Business Day after notice by Administrative Agent of the insufficiency, notify Administrative Agent that it will accept responsibility for such withholding taxes with respect to such Yen Borrowing, in which case (i) Administrative Agent and the Fronting Lenders shall allocate the available Fronting Commitments (A) first, to cover any portion of such Borrowing that will not be funded by a Yen Lender because it is a Non-Qualified Lender for a reason other than potential withholding taxes and (B) then, to cover the remaining amount of such Borrowing, in each case up to the maximum available Fronting Commitments, subject to the Yen Fronting Limitations, (ii) the participations in any Fronting Loans made pursuant to clause (i)(B) above shall be allocated among the Yen Specified Lenders pro rata according to their respective Yen Commitments, (iii) each Yen Specified Lender shall fund its pro rata share of such Borrowing to the extent not funded by the Fronting Lenders and (iv) such Borrower shall pay or reimburse each Yen Specified Lender for any withholding tax arising from such Borrowing in accordance with Section 7.1.

(b)Each Non-Qualified Japan Lender with respect to the Yen Tranche (i) represents and warrants to each applicable Fronting Lender that (A) the purchase of a risk participation in such Fronting Loan by such Non-Qualified Japan Lender and (B) the funding of such risk

 

 

55

 

16257277_9


 

participation in such Fronting Loan by such Non-Qualified Japan Lender will not violate any applicable Law (including any Law of Japan), and (ii) agrees to indemnify such Fronting Lender for all losses, claims, damages, liabilities and related expenses (including the reasonable fees, charges and disbursements of any counsel for such Fronting Lender) incurred by such Fronting Lender or asserted against such Fronting Lender arising from any Fronting Loan made by such Fronting Lender pursuant to Section 4.2.1.  Without limiting the foregoing, no Fronting Lender shall be obligated to make any Fronting Loan pursuant to Section 4.2.1 if such Fronting Lender determines that any representation or warranty of the applicable Non-Qualified Japan Lender in clause (i) of the preceding sentence is not accurate. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 4.2.2(b), no Fronting Lender shall make a Fronting Loan in which a Non-Qualified Japan Lender would be required to purchase a risk participation if such Non-Qualified Japan Lender has notified such Fronting Lender at least two Business Days prior to the proposed date of borrowing (with copies to Administrative Agent and Prologis) that, as a result of a Change in Law, such Lender cannot make the representation and warranty set forth in the first sentence of this Section 4.2.2(b).

Section 4.2.3Refinancing of the Yen Fronting Loans.

(a)(i)     On the Trigger Date, Administrative Agent shall notify each Yen Non-Qualified Lender of its obligation to fund its participation in each applicable Yen Fronting Loan.  Each applicable Yen Non-Qualified Lender shall make the amount of its participation in each applicable Yen Fronting Loan specified in such notice available to Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender at Administrative Agent’s Office for payments in the same currency as the applicable Yen Fronting Loan not later than 1:00 p.m., Tokyo time, on the Business Day specified in such notice.

     (ii)     To the extent that a Yen Non-Qualified Lender that has a risk participation in a Yen Fronting Loan assigns all or part of its interest in such risk participation under Section 14.6 to a Yen Qualified Lender for purposes of such Yen Fronting Loan, then such Yen Qualified Lender shall make the amount of its assigned participation in such Yen Fronting Loan available to Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender at Administrative Agent’s Office for payments in the same currency as the applicable Yen Fronting Loan not later than 1:00 p.m., Tokyo time, on the third Business Day following the effective date of the assignment.

(b)If any applicable Yen Lender fails to make available to any Fronting Lender any amount required to be paid by such Yen Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 4.2.3 by the time specified in Section 4.2.3(a), the applicable Fronting Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Yen Lender (acting through Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount in the same currency as the applicable Yen Fronting Loan with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to such Fronting Lender at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect.  A certificate of a Fronting Lender submitted to any applicable Yen Lender (through Administrative Agent) with respect to any amount owing under this clause (b) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(c)Each applicable Yen Lender’s obligation to purchase and fund risk participations in Yen Fronting Loans pursuant to this Section 4.2.3 shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Yen Lender may have against the applicable Fronting Lender, any Yen Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or (iii) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.  No such funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of any Yen Borrower to repay any Fronting Lender, together with interest as provided herein.

(d)At any time after any Yen Lender has purchased and funded a risk participation in a Yen Fronting Loan, if the applicable Fronting Lender receives any payment on account of such Fronting Loan, such Fronting Lender will distribute to such Yen Lender such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Yen Lender’s risk participation was funded) in the same funds and currency as those received by the applicable Fronting Lender.

(e)If any payment received by any Fronting Lender (and paid to a Yen Lender) in respect of principal of or interest on any Yen Fronting Loan is required to be returned by such Fronting Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 14.5 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such Fronting Lender in its discretion), such Yen Lender shall pay to such Fronting Lender in the applicable currency of such Yen Fronting Loan the amount of such payment in respect of such Yen Fronting Loan on demand of Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate.  Administrative Agent will make such demand upon the request of the applicable Fronting Lender.  The obligations of Yen Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.

Section 4.2.4Payments for Account of the Applicable Fronting Lender.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, until a Yen Lender funds its risk participation pursuant to this Section 4.2 to refinance such Yen Lender’s applicable Yen Fronting Loan, all payments made hereunder in respect of the portion of any Yen Loans that was funded in part by a Fronting Lender shall be solely for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender.

Section 4.2.5Defaulting Lender.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Fronting Lender shall be required to make a Yen Fronting Loan with respect to which there is a Yen Non-Qualified Lender that is a Defaulting Lender at the time of the receipt by Administrative Agent of the applicable Yen Loan Notice or at any time prior to the funding of such Yen Fronting Loan.  In addition, to the extent (a) a Yen Fronting Loan is outstanding, (b) a Yen Non-Qualified Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender and (c) the applicable Fronting Lender makes a demand for repayment to the applicable Yen Borrower, then such Yen Borrower shall repay such Yen Fronting Loan (i) on or before the earlier of (A) 30 days following receipt of such demand or (B) the fifth day following the last day of the applicable Interest Period ending after receipt of such demand or (ii) if no Interest Period is in effect with respect to such Yen Fronting Loan, within ten days following receipt of such demand.  If any such Yen Fronting Loan is not repaid in full on the last day of an Interest Period (if applicable or required under clause (i)(B) above), subject

Section 4.4.1Prepayments of Yen Loans.  Each Yen Borrower may, upon notice to Administrative Agent, at any time or from time to time voluntarily prepay Yen Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (a) such notice must be in a form acceptable to Administrative Agent and be received by Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m., (i) three Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Eurocurrency Rate Loans and (ii) two Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Base Rate Loans, ABR Rate Loans and Substitute Rate Loans; and (b) any prepayment of Yen Loans shall be in a principal amount permitted by Section 6.1.2, or, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding.  Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the Type(s) of Yen Loans to be prepaid and, if Eurocurrency Rate Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of such Yen Loans.  Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Yen Lender and each Yen Fronting Lender, as applicable, of its receipt of each such notice and of the amount of such Yen Lender’s Applicable Tranche Percentage of such prepayment.  If such notice is given by such Yen Borrower, then such Yen Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein.  Any prepayment of a Eurocurrency Rate Loan shall be accompanied by all accrued interest on the amount prepaid, together with any additional amount required pursuant to Section 7.5.  Subject to Sections 4.2.4 and 6.9.3, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Yen Loans of Yen Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

Section 4.4.2Prepayments due to Currency Fluctuations.  Administrative Agent shall calculate the Yen Equivalent of the Yen Total Outstandings on each Revaluation Date.  If on the Revaluation Date that occurs on the first Business Day of each calendar month, or such other times as Administrative Agent may determine in its reasonable discretion, such calculation reflects that, as of such Revaluation Date, the Yen Equivalent of the Yen Total Outstandings exceeds an amount equal to 105% of the Yen Aggregate Commitments then in effect, then, within five Business Days after notice of such calculation from Administrative Agent to Prologis, Yen Borrowers shall prepay the Yen Loans in an aggregate amount sufficient to reduce the Yen Equivalent of such Yen Total Outstandings as of such date of payment to an amount not to exceed 100% of the Yen Aggregate Commitments then in effect. Subject to Section 4.2.4, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Yen Loans of Yen Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

Section 4.4.3Other Prepayments.  If, on any date other than the Maturity Date, the Yen Equivalent of the Yen Total Outstandings exceeds the Yen Aggregate Commitments then in effect and such excess is not due to a currency exchange fluctuation covered under Section 4.4.2, then, within two Business Days after notice from Administrative Agent to Prologis, Yen Borrowers shall prepay the Yen Loans in an aggregate amount sufficient to reduce the Yen Equivalent of such Yen Total Outstandings as of such date of payment to an amount not to exceed the Yen Aggregate Commitments then in effect, without regard to any minimum or multiples specified in Section 6.1.2 with respect to prepayments. Subject to Section 4.2.4, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Yen Loans of Yen Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

Section 5.2   Sterling Fronting Loans.

Section 5.2.1Sterling Fronting Loans.  Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Section 5.2, upon a request for a Sterling Borrowing in an Alternative Currency or to a Foreign Borrower in compliance with Section 5.1, each Fronting Lender agrees, subject to the limitations set forth below, to fund its Fronting Portion of such Sterling Borrowing in the requested currency with respect to such Sterling Borrowing and in the amount of each Sterling Non-Qualified Lender’s Applicable Tranche Percentage for such Sterling Borrowing (each a “Sterling Fronting Loan”), notwithstanding the fact that, after giving effect to such funding, all Sterling Fronting Loans of such Fronting Lender, when aggregated with the Sterling Loans of such Fronting Lender, may exceed the amount of such Fronting Lender’s Sterling Commitment; provided that (a) after giving effect to any Sterling Fronting Loan, the aggregate Dollar Equivalent amount of all Fronting Loans funded by such Fronting Lender shall not exceed the Fronting Commitment of such Fronting Lender, and (b) such Fronting Lender shall not be a Sterling Non-Qualified Lender with respect to such Sterling Borrowing. Immediately upon the making of a Sterling Fronting Loan, the applicable Sterling Non-Qualified Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from such Fronting Lender a risk participation in 100% of such Sterling Fronting Loan.  The obligation of each Sterling Non-Qualified Lender to make Sterling Loans in an Alternative Currency or to a Foreign Borrower under Section 5.1 shall be satisfied by its purchase of a risk participation in the applicable Sterling Fronting Loan; it being understood that no Sterling Non-Qualified Lender shall be responsible for, or be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender or otherwise in breach of this Agreement as a result of, the failure by a Fronting Lender to make a Fronting Loan in which such Sterling Non-Qualified Lender is to purchase a risk participation.

Section 5.2.2Election of Fronting Lenders.  (a) Upon a request for a Sterling Borrowing in accordance with Section 5.3 in an Alternative Currency or to a Foreign Borrower with respect to which there are Sterling Non-Qualified Lenders, there shall be a Fronting Lender Election.  If, based on the limitations set forth in the proviso to the first sentence of Section 5.2.1 or the last two sentences of Section 5.2.2(b) (the “Sterling Fronting Limitations”), the Fronting

Commitments are not sufficient to fund all of the requested Sterling Fronting Loans in such Alternative Currency or to such Foreign Borrower, then the applicable Sterling Borrower shall, within one Business Day after notice by Administrative Agent of such insufficiency, decrease the amount of the requested Sterling Borrowing to the amount that would result in utilization of the maximum available Fronting Commitments, subject to the Sterling Fronting Limitations and, if applicable, after giving effect to the following sentence.  If one or more Sterling Lenders are Sterling Non-Qualified Lenders solely because such Sterling Lenders are not capable of making requested Sterling Loans to a Foreign Borrower without the imposition of withholding taxes (each a “Sterling Specified Lender”), such Borrower may, within one Business Day after notice by Administrative Agent of the insufficiency, notify Administrative Agent that it will accept responsibility for such withholding taxes with respect to such Sterling Borrowing, in which case (i) Administrative Agent and the Fronting Lenders shall allocate the available Fronting Commitments (A) first, to cover any portion of such Borrowing that will not be funded by a Sterling Lender because it is a Non-Qualified Lender for a reason other than potential withholding taxes and (B) then, to cover the remaining amount of such Borrowing, in each case up to the maximum available Fronting Commitments, subject to the Sterling Fronting Limitations, (ii) the participations in any Fronting Loans made pursuant to clause (i)(B) above shall be allocated among the Sterling Specified Lenders pro rata according to their respective Sterling Commitments, (iii) each Sterling Specified Lender shall fund its pro rata share of such Borrowing to the extent not funded by the Fronting Lenders and (iv) such Borrower shall pay or reimburse each Sterling Specified Lender for any withholding tax arising from such Borrowing in accordance with Section 7.1.

Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 5.2.2(b), no Fronting Lender shall make a Fronting Loan in which a Non-Qualified Japan Lender would be required to purchase a risk participation if such Non-Qualified Japan Lender has notified such Fronting Lender at least two Business Days prior to the proposed date of borrowing (with copies to Administrative Agent and Prologis) that, as a result of a Change in Law, such Lender cannot make the representation and warranty set forth in the first sentence of this Section 5.2.2(b).

Section 5.2.3Refinancing of the Sterling Fronting Loans.

(a)(i)      On the Trigger Date, Administrative Agent shall notify each Sterling Non-Qualified Lender of its obligation to fund its participation in each applicable Sterling Fronting Loan.  Each applicable Sterling Non-Qualified Lender shall make the amount of its participation

in each applicable Sterling Fronting Loan specified in such notice available to Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender at Administrative Agent’s Office for payments in the same currency as the applicable Sterling Fronting Loan not later than 1:00 p.m. on the Business Day specified in such notice.

     (ii)     To the extent that a Sterling Non-Qualified Lender that has a risk participation in a Sterling Fronting Loan assigns all or part of its interest in such risk participation under Section 14.6 to a Sterling Qualified Lender for purposes of such Sterling Fronting Loan, then such Sterling Qualified Lender shall make the amount of its assigned participation in such Sterling Fronting Loan available to Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender at Administrative Agent’s Office for payments in the same currency as the applicable Sterling Fronting Loan not later than 1:00 p.m. on  the third Business Day following the effective date of the assignment.

(b)If any applicable Sterling Lender fails to make available to any Fronting Lender any amount required to be paid by such Sterling Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 5.2.3 by the time specified in Section 5.2.3(a), such Fronting Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Sterling Lender (acting through Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount in the same currency as the applicable Sterling Fronting Loan with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to such Fronting Lender at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect.  A certificate of a Fronting Lender submitted to any applicable Sterling Lender (through Administrative Agent) with respect to any amount owing under this clause (b) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.

(c)Each applicable Sterling Lender’s obligation to purchase and fund risk participations in Sterling Fronting Loans pursuant to this Section 5.2.3 shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Sterling Lender may have against the applicable Fronting Lender, any Sterling Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (ii) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or (iii) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.  No such funding of risk participations shall relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of any Sterling Borrower to repay any Fronting Lender, together with interest as provided herein.

(d)At any time after any Sterling Lender has purchased and funded a risk participation in a Sterling Fronting Loan, if the applicable Fronting Lender receives any payment on account of such Sterling Fronting Loan, such Fronting Lender will distribute to such Sterling Lender such payment (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Sterling Lender’s participation was funded) in the same funds and currency as those received by such Fronting Lender.

(e)If any payment received by any Fronting Lender (and paid to a Sterling Lender) in respect of principal of or interest on any Sterling Fronting Loan is required to be returned by such Fronting Lender under any of the circumstances described in Section 14.5 (including pursuant to any settlement entered into by such Fronting Lender in its discretion), such Sterling Lender shall pay to such Fronting Lender in the applicable currency of such Fronting Loan the

amount of such payment in respect of such Sterling Fronting Loan on demand of Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate.  Administrative Agent will make such demand upon the request of the applicable Fronting Lender.  The obligations of the applicable Sterling Lenders under this clause shall survive the payment in full of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.

Section 5.2.4Payments for Account of the Applicable Fronting Lender.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, until the applicable Sterling Lender funds its risk participation pursuant to this Section 5.2 to refinance such Sterling Lender’s applicable Sterling Fronting Loan, all payments made hereunder in respect of the portion of any Sterling Loan that was funded in part by a Fronting Lender shall be solely for the account of the applicable Fronting Lender.

Section 5.2.5Defaulting Lender.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Fronting Lender shall be required to make a Sterling Fronting Loan with respect to which there is a Sterling Non-Qualified Lender that is a Defaulting Lender at the time of the receipt by Administrative Agent of the applicable Sterling Loan Notice or at any time prior to the funding of such Sterling Fronting Loan.  In addition, to the extent (a) a Sterling Fronting Loan is outstanding, (b) a Sterling Non-Qualified Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender and (c) the applicable Fronting Lender makes a demand for repayment to the applicable Sterling Borrower, then such Sterling Borrower shall repay such Sterling Fronting Loan (i) on or before the earlier of (A) 30 days following receipt of such demand or (B) the fifth day following the last day of the applicable Interest Period ending after receipt of such demand or (ii) if no Interest Period is in effect with respect to such Sterling Fronting Loan, within ten days following receipt of such demand.  If any such Sterling Fronting Loan is not repaid in full on the last day of an Interest Period (if applicable or required under clause (i)(B) above), subject to Section 6.5.2, such Sterling Fronting Loan shall bear interest at the Money Market Rate plus the Applicable Margin until such payment is made hereunder.

Section 5.3   Sterling Borrowings, Conversions and Continuations of Sterling Loans.

Section 5.3.1Procedures for Sterling Borrowings.  Each Sterling Borrowing, each conversion of Sterling Loans denominated in Dollars from one Type of Dollar-denominated Loans to the other, and each continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans shall be made upon the requesting Sterling Borrower’s irrevocable notice to Administrative Agent, which may be given by (A) telephone or (B) a Sterling Loan Notice; provided that any telephonic notice must be confirmed immediately by delivery to Administrative Agent of a Sterling Loan Notice.

principal amount permitted by Section  6.1.1. Each Sterling Borrowing of or conversion to Base Rate Loans shall be in a principal amount permitted by Section 6.1.1. Each Sterling Loan Notice shall specify (i) the jurisdiction of the applicable Sterling Borrower and whether such Borrower is a Foreign Borrower, (ii) whether such Sterling Borrower is requesting a Sterling Borrowing, a conversion of Sterling Loans denominated in Dollars from one Type of Dollar-denominated Loans to the other, or a continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans, (iii) the requested date of the Sterling Borrowing, conversion or continuation, as the case may be (which shall be a Business Day), (iv) the principal amount of Sterling Loans to be borrowed, converted or continued, (v) the Type of Sterling Loans to be borrowed or to which existing Sterling Loans denominated in Dollars are to be converted, (vi) if applicable, the duration of the Interest Period with respect thereto and (vii) the currency of the Sterling Loans to be borrowed, continued or converted.

If the requesting Sterling Borrower fails to specify a Type of Sterling Loan in a Sterling Loan Notice or if the requesting Sterling Borrower fails to give a timely notice requesting a continuation, then the applicable Sterling Loans shall be made as, or converted to, Base Rate Loans; provided that in the case of a failure to timely request a continuation of Sterling Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency of the Sterling Tranche, such Sterling Loans shall be continued as Eurocurrency Rate Loans in their original currency with an Interest Period of one month. Any automatic conversion to Base Rate Loans shall be effective as of the last day of the Interest Period then in effect with respect to the applicable Eurocurrency Rate Loans. If the requesting Sterling Borrower requests a Sterling Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans in any such Sterling Loan Notice, but fails to specify an Interest Period, it will be deemed to have specified an Interest Period of one month. No Sterling Loan may be converted into or continued as a Sterling Loan denominated in a different currency, but instead must be repaid in the original currency of such Sterling Loan and reborrowed in the other currency.

Section 5.3.2Funding of Sterling Loans.  Following receipt of a Sterling Loan Notice, Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Sterling Lender of the amount and currency of its Applicable Tranche Percentage of the applicable Sterling Borrowing, and if no timely notice of a conversion or continuation is provided by the applicable Sterling Borrower, Administrative Agent shall notify each Sterling Lender of the details of any automatic conversion to Base Rate Loans or continuation of Sterling Loans denominated in a currency other than Dollars, in each case as described in Section 5.3.1.  In the case of a Sterling Borrowing, each Sterling Qualified Lender and the applicable Fronting Lender, if any, shall make the amount of its Sterling Loan available to Administrative Agent in Same Day Funds at Administrative Agent’s Office for the applicable currency not later than 1:00 p.m., in the case of any Sterling Loan denominated in Dollars, and not later than the Applicable Time specified by Administrative Agent in the case of any Sterling Loan in an Alternative Currency under the Sterling Tranche, in each case on the Business Day specified in the applicable Sterling Loan Notice.  Upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 8.2, Administrative Agent shall make all funds so received available to the applicable Sterling Borrower in like funds as received by Administrative Agent either by (a) crediting the account of such Sterling Borrower on the books of Administrative Agent with the amount of such funds or (b) wire transfer of such funds, in each case in accordance with instructions provided to (and reasonably acceptable to) Administrative Agent by such Sterling Borrower.

Section 5.3.3Certain Continuations and Conversions.  Except as otherwise provided herein, a Eurocurrency Rate Loan may be continued or converted only on the last day of an Interest Period for such Eurocurrency Rate Loan.  During the existence of a Default, the Sterling Required Lenders may at their option, by notice to the Sterling Borrowers (which notice may be revoked at the option of the Sterling Required Lenders notwithstanding any provision of Section 14.1), declare that (a) no Sterling Loans denominated in Dollars may be requested as, converted to or continued as Eurocurrency Rate Loans, and (b) no Sterling Loans denominated in an Alternative Currency may be requested or continued as Eurocurrency Rate Loans, other than as Eurocurrency Rate Loans with an Interest Period of one month.

Section 5.3.5Number of Interest Periods.  After giving effect to all Sterling Borrowings, all conversions of Sterling Loans from one Type to the other, and all continuations of Sterling Loans as the same Type, there shall not be more than 15 Interest Periods in effect with respect to all Loans under all Tranches.

Section 5.4   Sterling Prepayments.

Section 5.4.1Prepayments of Loans.  Each Sterling Borrower may, upon notice to Administrative Agent, at any time or from time to time voluntarily prepay Sterling Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided that (a) such notice must be in a form acceptable to Administrative Agent and be received by Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m., (i) three Business Days prior to any date of prepayment of Eurocurrency Rate Loans and (ii) on the date of prepayment of any Base Rate Loans and Substitute Rate Loans; and (b) any prepayment of Sterling Loans shall be in a principal amount permitted by Section 6.1.2 or, if less, the entire principal amount thereof then outstanding.  Each such notice shall specify the date and amount of such prepayment and the Type(s) of Loans to be prepaid and, if Eurocurrency Rate Loans are to be prepaid, the Interest Period(s) of the applicable Loans.  Administrative Agent will promptly notify each Sterling Lender and each Sterling Fronting Lender, as applicable, of its receipt of each such notice, and of the amount of such Sterling Lender’s Applicable Tranche Percentage of such prepayment.  If such notice is given by such Sterling Borrower, then such Sterling Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein.  Any prepayment of a Eurocurrency Rate Loan shall be accompanied by all accrued interest on the amount prepaid, together with any additional amount required pursuant to Section 7.5.  Subject to Sections 5.2.4 and 6.9.3, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Sterling Loans of Sterling Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

Revaluation Date.  If on the Revaluation Date that occurs on the first Business Day of each calendar month, or such other times as Administrative Agent may determine in its reasonable discretion, such calculation reflects that, as of such Revaluation Date, the Sterling Equivalent of the Sterling Total Outstandings exceeds an amount equal to 105% of the Sterling Aggregate Commitments then in effect, then, within five Business Days after notice of such calculation from Administrative Agent to Prologis, Sterling Borrowers shall prepay Sterling Loans in an aggregate amount sufficient to reduce the Sterling Equivalent of the Sterling Total Outstandings as of such date of payment to an amount not exceeding 100% of the Sterling Aggregate Commitments then in effect.  Subject to Section 5.2.4, each such prepayment shall be applied to the Sterling Loans of Sterling Lenders in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages.

Section 5.4.3Other Prepayments.  If, on any date other than the Maturity Date, the Sterling Equivalent of the Sterling Total Outstandings exceeds the Sterling Aggregate Commitments then in effect and such excess is not due to a currency exchange fluctuation covered under Section 5.4.2, then, within two Business Days after notice from Administrative Agent to Prologis, Sterling Borrowers shall prepay the Sterling Loans in an aggregate amount sufficient to reduce the Sterling Equivalent of such Sterling Total Outstandings as of such date of payment to an amount not to exceed the Sterling Aggregate Commitments then in effect, without regard to any minimum or multiples specified in Section 6.1.2 with respect to prepayments.

(b)Upon the written request of Required Lenders at any time and so long as any Event of Default exists, Borrowers shall pay interest on the principal amount of all outstanding Obligations hereunder at a fluctuating interest rate per annum at all times equal to the Default Rate to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Laws.

(c)Accrued and unpaid interest on past due amounts (including interest on past due interest) shall be due and payable upon demand.

Section 6.5.3Interest Payment Dates.  Interest on each Loan shall be due and payable in arrears on each Interest Payment Date applicable thereto and at such other times as may be specified herein.  Interest hereunder shall be due and payable in accordance with the terms hereof before and after judgment, and before and after the commencement of any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law.

Section 6.6   Fees.

Section 6.6.1Closing Fees.  Prologis shall pay to Administrative Agent on the Closing Date for the account of each Lender, a closing fee in the amount separately agreed upon in writing with such Lender.

Section 6.6.2Agency and Arrangement Fees.  Prologis shall pay to Arrangers and Administrative Agent, such fees in the amounts and at the times specified in the Fee Letters.

Section 6.6.3Unused Fee.  If a Borrower makes a prepayment of a Loan under any Tranche and has not reborrowed all or a portion of the amount prepaid within 30 days after the date of such prepayment, then such Borrower shall pay an unused fee (the “Unused Fee”) to Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders in the applicable Tranche in an amount equal to 0.20% per annum multiplied by the amount of the applicable Tranche that is available to be reborrowed.  Such Unused Fee shall accrue commencing on the 31st day after the date of any such prepayment until the amount prepaid is reborrowed or the available Commitment is cancelled or terminated.  Such Unused Fee shall be payable quarterly in arrears.  The Unused Fee with respect to the Euro Tranche shall be payable in Euros, with respect to the U.S. Tranche shall be payable in Dollars, with respect to the Yen Tranche shall be payable in Yen, and with respect to the Sterling Tranche shall be payable in Sterling.

70

 

16257277_9


 

results in more interest or fees, as applicable, being paid than if computed on the basis of a 365-day year).  Interest shall accrue on each Loan for the day on which such Loan is made, and shall not accrue on a Loan, or any portion thereof, for the day on which such Loan or such portion is paid, provided that any Loan that is repaid on the same day on which it is made shall bear interest for one day.  Each determination by Administrative Agent of an interest rate or fee hereunder shall be conclusive and binding for all purposes, absent demonstrable error.

Section 6.8   Evidence of Debt and Promissory Note.

Section 6.8.1Recordkeeping.  The Loans made by each Lender shall be evidenced by one or more accounts or records maintained by such Lender and by Administrative Agent, in each case in the ordinary course of business.  The accounts or records maintained by Administrative Agent and each Lender shall be rebuttable presumptive evidence of the amount of the Loans made by Lenders to Borrowers and the interest and payments thereon.  Any failure to so record or any error in doing so shall not, however, limit or otherwise affect the obligations of Borrowers hereunder to pay any amount owing with respect to the Obligations.  In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by Administrative Agent and the accounts and records of any Lender in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.

Section 6.8.2Promissory Note.  The provisions of this Section 6.8.2 constitute a promissory note for the benefit of each Lender.  In furtherance of the foregoing:

(a)Each Borrower hereby promises, severally, but not jointly, to pay to each Lender, in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, the principal amount of each Loan of such Borrower from time to time made by such Lender to such Borrower.  In addition, such Borrower promises severally, but not jointly, to pay interest on the unpaid principal amount of the Loans made to such Borrower, from the date of such Loans until such principal amount is paid in full, at such interest rates and at such times as provided in this Agreement.

(b)All payments of principal and interest with respect to Loans shall be made to Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders in the currency in which such Loans are denominated and in Same Day Funds at Administrative Agent’s Office for such currency.

Section 6.8.3Participations.  In addition to the accounts and records referred to in Section 6.8.1, each Lender and Administrative Agent shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice accounts or records evidencing the purchases and sales by such Lender of participations in Fronting Loans.  In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by Administrative Agent and the accounts and records of any Lender in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of such Administrative Agent shall control in the absence of manifest error.

Section 6.9   Payments Generally; Administrative Agent’s Clawback.

Section 6.9.1All Payments Generally.  All payments to be made by Borrowers shall be made without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment or setoff.

Section 6.9.2Payments Generally. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by a Borrower under a Tranche shall be made to Administrative Agent, for the account

 

 

71

 

16257277_9


 

of the Applicable Tranche Lenders to which such payment is owed, at Administrative Agent’s Office in the Primary Currency of such Tranche and in Same Day Funds not later than 12:00 noon, Applicable Time (and by 10:00 a.m. for payments under the Euro Tranche), on the date specified herein.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, all payments by a Borrower under a Tranche with respect to principal of and interest on Loans under such Tranche that are denominated in an Alternative Currency of such Tranche shall be made to Administrative Agent, for the account of the Applicable Tranche Lenders to which such payment is owed, at Administrative Agent’s Office in such Alternative Currency and in Same Day Funds not later than the Applicable Time specified by Administrative Agent on the dates specified herein.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Administrative Agent may require that any payments due under this Agreement be made in the Primary Location (as defined below).  If, for any reason, any Borrower is prohibited by any Law from making any required payment hereunder in an Alternative Currency, such Borrower shall make such payment in the Primary Currency in the Dollar Equivalent, Euro Equivalent, Sterling Equivalent or Yen Equivalent, as applicable, of such Alternative Currency payment amount.  For purposes of this Section 6.9.2, “Primary Location” means, with respect to the U.S. Tranche, the United States; with respect to the Euro Tranche, The Netherlands; with respect to the Yen Tranche, Japan; and with respect to the Sterling Tranche, the United Kingdom.

Section 6.9.3Distribution of Payments.  With respect to payments and fees as set forth herein to be paid to Administrative Agent, Administrative Agent will promptly distribute to each applicable Lender in such Tranche its Applicable Tranche Percentage (or other applicable share as provided herein) of such payment in like funds as received by wire transfer to such Lender’s Lending Office.  With respect to payments as set forth herein to be paid to Administrative Agent, Administrative Agent will promptly distribute to each Lender its Applicable Percentage (or other applicable share as provided herein) of such payment in like funds as received by wire transfer to such Lender’s Lending Office.  All payments received by Administrative Agent after the Applicable Time specified by Administrative Agent shall in each case be deemed received on the next succeeding Business Day and any applicable interest or fee shall continue to accrue.  If any payment to be made by any Borrower shall become due on a day other than a Business Day, payment shall be made on the next following Business Day, and such extension of time shall be reflected in computing interest or fees, as the case may be.

Section 6.9.4Application of Payments.  All payments by any Loan Party hereunder shall be applied to such Obligations as such Loan Party shall specify; provided that, subject to Section 6.15.1(b), during the existence of any Event of Default, all payments by or on behalf of any Loan Party hereunder shall be applied as follows, in each case to the extent that the applicable payor has liability therefor:

(a)First, to the payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting unpaid fees, indemnities, costs, expenses and other amounts (other than principal or interest) payable to Administrative Agent in its capacity as such or any Related Party thereof, ratably among them in proportion to the respective amounts payable pursuant to this clause (a);

(b)Second, to the payment of all amounts paid by Lenders to any Administrative Agent or any Related Party thereof pursuant to Section 14.4.3 (to the extent Lenders have not

 

 

72

 

16257277_9


 

previously been reimbursed therefor), ratably among them in proportion to the respective amounts payable pursuant to this clause (b);

(c)Third, to the payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting unpaid fees, indemnities, costs, expenses and other amounts (other than principal or interest) payable to any Person pursuant to Section 14.4.1, ratably among them in proportion to the respective amounts payable pursuant to this clause (c);

(d)Fourth, to the payment of all amounts paid by Lenders to any Person pursuant to Section 14.4.3 (to the extent Lenders have not previously been reimbursed therefor), ratably among them in proportion to the respective amounts payable pursuant to this clause (d);

(e)Fifth, to the payment of that portion of the Obligations constituting accrued and unpaid interest on the Loans, ratably among Lenders in proportion to the respective amounts payable to them pursuant to this clause (e);

(f)Sixth, to the payment of the unpaid principal of the Loans, ratably among Lenders in proportion to the respective amounts payable pursuant to this clause (f);

(g)Seventh, to the payment of all remaining unpaid Obligations, ratably among the Credit Parties in proportion to the respective amounts payable pursuant to this clause (g); and

(h)Last, the balance, if any, after payment in full of all Obligations of the applicable payor, to such payor or as otherwise required by Law.

Notwithstanding the above, if General Partner or Prologis makes any payments, or there are recoveries from General Partner or Prologis, during the existence of any Event of Default, then, if so elected by Required Lenders, such payments or recoveries shall be applied to the Obligations as directed by Required Lenders; provided that such application shall not affect the agreements set forth in Section 6.10.

Section 6.9.5Funding by Lenders; Presumption by Administrative Agent.  Unless Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the proposed 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 directly or through a Fronting Lender has made such share available on such date in accordance with the requirements hereof and may, in reliance upon such assumption, make available to the applicable Borrower a corresponding amount.  In such event, if a Lender has not in fact made its share of the applicable Borrowing available directly or through a Fronting Lender to Administrative Agent, then the applicable Lender and the applicable Borrower severally agree to pay to Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such corresponding amount in the same currency and in Same Day Funds with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is made available to such Borrower to the date of payment to Administrative Agent, at (a) in the case of a payment to be made by such Lender, the Overnight Rate and (b) in the case of a payment to be made by such Borrower, the interest rate applicable to the applicable Loans.  If such Borrower and such Lender shall pay such interest to Administrative Agent for the same or an overlapping period, Administrative Agent shall promptly remit to such Borrower the amount of such interest

 

 

73

 

16257277_9


 

paid by such Borrower for such period.  If such Lender pays its share of the applicable Borrowing directly or through a Fronting Lender to Administrative Agent, then the amount so paid shall satisfy such Lender’s obligation with respect to such Borrowing.  Any payment by a Borrower pursuant to this Section 6.9.5 shall be without prejudice to any claim such Borrower may have against a Lender that shall have failed to make a payment to Administrative Agent.

Section 6.9.6Payments by Borrowers; Presumptions by Administrative Agent.  Unless Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the applicable Borrower prior to the date on which any payment is due to Administrative Agent for the account of the Lenders hereunder that such Borrower will not make such payment, Administrative Agent may assume that such Borrower has made such payment on such date in accordance herewith and may, in reliance upon such assumption, distribute to Lenders the amount due.  In such event, if such Borrower has not in fact made such payment, then each Lender severally agrees to repay to Administrative Agent forthwith on demand the amount so distributed to such Lender, in the same currency and in Same Day Funds with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to it to the date of payment to Administrative Agent, at the Overnight Rate.  A notice by Administrative Agent to any Lender or Borrower with respect to any amount owing under this Section 6.9.6 shall be conclusive, absent demonstrable error.

Section 6.9.7Failure to Satisfy Conditions Precedent.  If any Lender makes available directly or through a Fronting Lender to Administrative Agent funds for any Loan to be made by such Lender to any Borrower as provided herein, and such funds are not made available to such Borrower by Administrative Agent because the conditions to such Loan set forth in Article VIII are not satisfied or waived in accordance with the terms hereof, Administrative Agent shall promptly return such funds (in like funds as received from such Lender) to such Lender, plus interest thereon from the date funds were made available to Administrative Agent by such Lender to the date such amount is returned by Administrative Agent to such Lender, at a rate per annum equal to the applicable Overnight Rate from time to time in effect.

Section 6.9.8Obligations of Lenders Several.  The obligations of Lenders hereunder to make Loans and to make payments pursuant to Section 14.4.3 are several and not joint.  The failure of any Lender to make any Loan, to fund any such participation or to make any payment under Section 14.4.3 on any date required hereunder shall not relieve any other Lender of its corresponding obligation (if any) to do so on such date, and no Lender shall be responsible for the failure of any other Lender to make any Loan, to purchase any such participation, or to make any payment under Section 14.4.3.

Section 6.9.9Funding Source.  Subject to Section 7.6.1, (a) each Lender may, at its option, make any Loan available to any Borrower by causing any foreign or domestic branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan; provided that any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of such Borrower in accordance with the terms of this Agreement; and (b) nothing herein shall be deemed to obligate any Lender to obtain the funds for any Loan in any particular place or manner or to constitute a representation by any Lender that it has obtained or will obtain the funds for any Loan in any particular place or manner.

Section 6.10   Sharing of Payments.  

Section 6.10.1Sharing of Payments by Lenders in a Tranche.  If any Lender shall, by exercising any right of setoff or counterclaim or otherwise, obtain payment in respect of any principal of or interest on any Loans made by it in a particular Tranche and, as a result thereof, such Lender shall receive payment of a proportion of the aggregate amount of its Loans under such Tranche and interest thereon greater than its Applicable Tranche Percentage of all payments on account of the principal of and interest on all Loans under such Tranche, then such Lender shall (a) notify Administrative Agent of such fact and (b) purchase (for cash at face value) participations in the Loans in such Tranche of the other Lenders in such Tranche, or make such other adjustments as shall be equitable, so that the benefit of all such payments shall be shared by Lenders in such Tranche ratably in accordance with their respective Applicable Tranche Percentages; provided that:

(a)if any such participations are purchased and any portion of any payment giving rise thereto is recovered, such participations shall be rescinded and the purchase price restored to the extent of such recovery, without interest; and

(b)the provisions of this Section 6.10.1 shall not apply to (i) any payment made by a Loan Party pursuant to and in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement, (ii) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in its Loans to any assignee or participant, other than to Prologis or any Eligible Affiliate thereof (as to which the provisions of this Section 6.10.1 shall apply), (iii) any payment pursuant to Article VII or (iv) any payment made to a non-Defaulting Lender in accordance with the terms of this Agreement that otherwise would have been made to a Defaulting Lender.

Each Loan Party consents to the foregoing and agrees, to the extent it may effectively do so under applicable Law, that any Lender acquiring a participation pursuant to the foregoing arrangements may exercise against such Loan Party rights of setoff and counterclaim with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were a direct creditor of such Loan Party in the amount of such participation.

Section 6.10.2Sharing of Payments by Tranches.  If, at any time during the existence of any Trigger Event, the Lenders under any Tranche (a “Group”) shall obtain aggregate payments or other recoveries (whether voluntary, involuntary, by application of offset or otherwise) on account of principal of or interest on any Loan made, under such Tranche in excess of such Group’s pro rata share (based on such Group’s percentage of the aggregate Dollar Equivalent amount of all such obligations then owed to all Lenders hereunder) of all payments and other recoveries received by all Groups hereunder, then the Group receiving such excess payment (the “Benefitted Group”) shall immediately (a) purchase (for cash at face value, and based on each such Lender’s Applicable Tranche Percentage) participations in Obligations of the other Groups in order to cause the Benefitted Group to share the excess payment or recovery ratably with the other Groups and (b) pay such excess to (or as otherwise directed by) Administrative Agent, which shall distribute such excess to Administrative Agent for the other Groups, in order to effectuate such participations; provided that if all or any part of the payment or other recovery that gave rise to any such excess payment or other recovery is thereafter recovered from the

 

 

75

 

16257277_9


 

Benefitted Group, then each other Group shall repay to Administrative Agent for the account of the Benefitted Group the amount necessary to ensure that each Group receives its pro rata share of all such payments or other recoveries received by each Group.  The obligation of each member of each Group to make its share of any payment required under this Section 6.10.2 shall be several, and not joint or joint and several, and after giving effect to any such payment each Group shall make such other adjustments as shall be appropriate under Section 6.10.1.  The provisions of this Section 6.10.2 are solely for the benefit of the Lenders and are not for the benefit of (and may not be enforced by) any other Person.  Administrative Agent and Lenders may, without the consent of any Loan Party or any other Person, make arrangements among themselves to amend or otherwise modify this Section 6.10.2 and to establish different sharing arrangements with respect to payments and other recoveries hereunder; provided that any such amendment, modification or sharing arrangement shall be consented to by all Lenders affected thereby.  If, at any time after Lenders have purchased participations pursuant to this Section 6.10.2, no Trigger Event exists, then Administrative Agent and Lenders shall take all actions necessary to rescind all participations and subparticipations previously purchased pursuant to this Section 6.10.2.

Section 6.11  Extension of Maturity Date.

Section 6.11.1Request for Extension.  Not earlier than 180 days or later than 30 days prior to the then-current Maturity Date, Prologis may, upon written notice to Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify the Lenders) and satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in Section 6.11.2, extend the Maturity Date for an additional year; provided that (a) the Maturity Date may not be extended more than two times pursuant to this Section 6.11; and (b) each extension shall not be effective unless the Global Credit Agreement has been extended (or refinanced by a similar credit facility reasonably satisfactory to Required Lenders) to a date beyond the date of the maturity of this Agreement after giving effect to such extension.

Section 6.11.2Extension Procedures.  Any extension of the Maturity Date contemplated by Section 6.11.1 shall become effective on the date (the “Extension Effective Date”) on which the following conditions precedent have been satisfied: (a) Administrative Agent shall have received the written notice referred to in Section 6.11.1 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, the Extension Effective Date shall be the first date thereafter, if any, on or before the then-current Maturity Date on which no Event of Default is continuing.  Upon the satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in this Section 6.11.2 and the occurrence of the Extension Effective Date, Administrative Agent shall promptly confirm to Prologis and the Lenders such extension and the Extension Effective Date.  The extension fee described above shall be payable in (i) Dollars with respect to U.S. Commitments, (ii) Euros with respect to Euro Commitments, (iii) Yen with respect to Yen Commitments, and (iv) Sterling with respect to the Sterling Tranche.

Section 6.12.1Procedures for Adding Affiliate Borrowers.  Prologis may, upon at least ten Business Days’ prior written notice to Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify the Lenders) (or (x) such lesser period as may be agreed to by Administrative Agent or (y) such longer period as is determined by Administrative Agent to be reasonably necessary for the applicable parties to comply with any governmental or regulatory requirements), request that any Eligible Affiliate that is not a Sanctioned Person become an Affiliate Borrower by delivering the Organization Documents of such Eligible Affiliate to Administrative Agent.  At least five Business Days prior to an Eligible Affiliate becoming an Affiliate Borrower, Prologis shall deliver the drafts of the documents referenced in clauses (b)(i) and (ii) below, to Administrative Agent.  On or prior to the date on which an Eligible Affiliate becomes an Affiliate Borrower, Prologis shall deliver the following to Administrative Agent, in each case reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent, (a) a Borrower Accession Agreement duly executed by Prologis and such Eligible Affiliate that will, among other things, designate the applicable Tranche under which such Eligible Affiliate will be an Affiliate Borrower (the “Requested Tranche”) and (b) the following documents relating to such Eligible Affiliate: (i) an opinion of such Eligible Affiliate’s counsel reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent; (ii) an officer’s certificate certifying (A) the Organization Documents of such Eligible Affiliate, (B) resolutions of such Eligible Affiliate’s Board of Directors or other governing body authorizing the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the other Loan Documents, as applicable, certified as being in full force and effect without modification or amendment, and (C) signatures and incumbency of officers of such Eligible Affiliate or, with respect to any proposed Affiliate Borrower which is organized under the Laws of Japan, (x) a certificate of seal and a certificate of full registry records both of which have been issued by the competent legal affairs bureau within three months before the date of such officer’s certificate and (y) a seal registration form (in the form prescribed by Administrative Agent); (iii) certificates of existence and good standing for such Eligible Affiliate issued by its state of organization or the equivalent certificates, if any, from the applicable Governmental Authorities for any Eligible Affiliate organized outside of the U.S.; and (iv) any additional information regarding such Eligible Affiliate that Administrative Agent or any Lender may reasonably request under Section 14.16 or 14.17 or otherwise.  Upon receipt by Administrative Agent of the items referenced in this Section 6.12, each in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent and its counsel, and subject to Section 6.12.3, such Eligible Affiliate shall become an Affiliate Borrower under the Requested Tranche and assume all the rights, benefits and obligations of an Affiliate Borrower unless on such date a Default exists and is continuing or would occur as a result of such Eligible Affiliate becoming an Affiliate Borrower under the Requested Tranche.  Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Lender of the addition of any Affiliate Borrower pursuant to this Section 6.12.1.

Section 6.12.2Existing Borrowers.  Prologis may, upon at least 15 days’ prior written notice to Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify the Applicable Tranche Lenders) (or (x) such lesser period as may be agreed to by Administrative Agent or (y) such longer period as is determined by Administrative Agent to be reasonably necessary for the applicable parties to comply with any governmental or regulatory requirements), request that any existing Borrower under one Tranche become a Borrower under a different Tranche.  On or prior to the date on which such existing Borrower becomes a Borrower under a different Tranche, Prologis shall deliver the following to Administrative Agent, in each case reasonably acceptable to

 

 

77

 

16257277_9


 

Administrative Agent, (a) a Borrower Accession Agreement duly executed by Prologis and such existing Borrower that will, among other things, designate the applicable Tranche under which such existing Borrower will also become a Borrower (the “Additional Tranche”) and (b) any information regarding such existing Borrower that Administrative Agent or any Applicable Tranche Lender may reasonably request under Section 14.16 or 14.17, or otherwise.  Upon receipt by Administrative Agent of the items referenced in this Section 6.12.2, each in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Administrative Agent and its counsel, and subject to Section 6.12.3, such existing Borrower shall become a Borrower under the Additional Tranche unless on such date a Default exists or would occur as a result of such existing Borrower becoming a Borrower under the Tranche. Furthermore, Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Applicable Tranche Lender of the addition of a Borrower under an Additional Tranche pursuant to this Section 6.12.2.

Section 6.12.3Limitations.  In addition to the conditions set forth in Sections 6.12.1 and 6.12.2, to the extent applicable, neither (a) an Eligible Affiliate that would qualify as a Foreign Borrower under the Requested Tranche in which it would be a Borrower, nor (b) an existing Borrower under one Tranche that would otherwise qualify as Foreign Borrower under the Additional Tranche, may be a Borrower under such Requested Tranche or Additional Tranche, as applicable, unless Administrative Agent is reasonably satisfied that the addition of such Eligible Affiliate or existing Borrower to such Requested Tranche or Additional Tranche, as applicable, will not (i) violate any Laws, (ii) materially impair the ability of Applicable Tranche Lenders to assign their Commitments or Loans under such Requested Tranche or Additional Tranche, as applicable, or (iii) have any other material adverse effect on the Applicable Tranche Lenders. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of this Section 6.12.3 (other than clause (i) above) shall not be conditions to an Eligible Affiliate that is organized under the Laws of a Participating Member State becoming a Euro Borrower.  Upon the delivery of a notice by Administrative Agent of a request by Prologis to add an Eligible Affiliate as a Borrower or to add an existing Borrower to an Additional Tranche pursuant to Section 6.12.1 or 6.12.2, as applicable, each Applicable Tranche Lender shall promptly notify Administrative Agent if adding such additional Borrower would be subject to any of the foregoing limitations.

Section 6.12.4Qualification Status.  Upon the delivery of a notice by Administrative Agent of a request by Prologis to add an Eligible Affiliate as a Borrower or to add an existing Borrower to an Additional Tranche pursuant to Section 6.12.1 or 6.12.2, as applicable, Administrative Agent shall request that each Applicable Tranche Lender represent and warrant to Prologis and Administrative Agent as to whether such Applicable Tranche Lender is capable of making a Loan to such Eligible Affiliate without the imposition of any withholding taxes.  Each Lender agrees that it shall respond to any such request within three Business Days; provided that if an Applicable Tranche Lender does not respond within the required time period, then Administrative Agent may deem such Applicable Tranche Lender to be unable to make a Loan to such Eligible Affiliate without the imposition of a withholding tax.  Furthermore, Administrative Agent may revise Annex 2 to the Assignment and Assumption reflecting a new Borrower or the addition of a Borrower to an Additional Tranche.

Section 6.13   Reallocation of Commitments.

Section 6.13.1Reallocation Procedures.  Prologis may, from time to time during the Availability Period, by written notice to Administrative Agent (a “Reallocation Notice”), increase the Aggregate Tranche Commitment under one Available Tranche with a corresponding reduction of the Aggregate Tranche Commitment under a different Available Tranche by, with the consent of Administrative Agent and each applicable Fronting Lender, reallocating the Commitment of any Lender (each an “Allocating Lender”), subject to the following conditions:

(a)at the time of such Reallocation Notice, Prologis specifies which Tranche shall be increased and which Tranche shall be decreased;

(b)the amount of the increase in an Available Tranche shall be equal to the Foreign Currency Equivalent amount of the corresponding decrease in the other Available Tranche determined five Business Days prior to the Reallocation Effective Date;

(c)each Allocating Lender satisfies the requirements of an Eligible Qualified Institution under the Available Tranche in which the Aggregate Tranche Commitment is being increased;

(d)each Allocating Lender acknowledges in writing to Administrative Agent and Prologis that it has agreed that its Commitment will be reallocated hereunder (which acknowledgment shall be made in such Lender’s sole discretion);

(e)unless Administrative Agent otherwise agrees, Prologis may make a maximum of one request per calendar quarter;

(f)no reduction in any Aggregate Tranche Commitment shall be permitted if, after giving effect thereto and to any concurrent prepayments hereunder, the Total Tranche Outstandings under such Tranche would exceed the Aggregate Tranche Commitment under such Tranche;

(g)the amount of the increase or decrease in each applicable Aggregate Tranche Commitment shall not be less than a Dollar Equivalent amount of $5,000,000;

(h)no Default exists; and

(i)unless otherwise agreed among Administrative Agent, the affected Lender and the applicable Borrowers (which agreement may include a phase-in of the applicable increase and/or Interest Periods with any agreed-upon length), the applicable Borrowers shall prepay any Loans outstanding on the Reallocation Effective Date (and pay any additional amounts required pursuant to Section 7.5) to the extent necessary to keep the outstanding Loans in the affected Available Tranches ratable with any revised Applicable Tranche Percentages arising from any nonratable increase or decrease in any Commitments of any Lenders under this Section 6.13.

Section 6.13.2Effectiveness of Reallocation.  Administrative Agent contemporaneously with any reallocation completed in accordance with Section 6.13.1, shall provide to the Lenders and Prologis a new Schedule 2.1 for the applicable Tranches reflecting any proposed

 

 

79

 

16257277_9


 

reallocation.  In addition, Administrative Agent and Prologis shall determine the effective date (the “Reallocation Effective Date”) of such reallocation; provided that Administrative Agent shall promptly notify Prologis of the Reallocation Effective Date.  After any Reallocation Effective Date and the receipt of a revised Schedule 2.1, Administrative Agent shall promptly provide to each Lender in the affected Tranches and to Prologis a new Schedule 2.1 for the affected Tranches.

Section 6.14   Increase in Commitments.

Section 6.14.1Increase Procedures.  From time to time after the Closing Date to the Maturity Date, Prologis may, on three occasions, by written request (an “Increase Request”) to Administrative Agent, increase the amount of the Aggregate Tranche Commitments by (a) admitting additional Lenders hereunder (each a “Subsequent Lender”) or (b) increasing the Commitment of any existing Lender in such Lender’s sole discretion (each an “Increasing Lender”), subject to the following conditions:

(a)at the time of such Increase Request, Prologis specifies its requested allocation of the requested increase in the Aggregate Tranche Commitments to each Tranche;

(b)each Subsequent Lender is an Eligible Qualified Institution;

(c)each Subsequent Lender executes and delivers to Administrative Agent a joinder agreement substantially in the form of Exhibit E;

(d)each Increasing Lender executes and delivers to Administrative Agent an increase certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit F;

(e)the amount of all increases in the Aggregate Tranche Commitments pursuant to this Section 6.14 shall not exceed the Dollar Equivalent amount of $500,000,000 in the aggregate; it being understood that in determining the aggregate increase amount for purposes of this clause (e), each increase amount shall equal the Dollar Equivalent amount of such increase amount as determined on the corresponding effective date of the increase in the Aggregate Tranche Commitments; and after giving effect to each such increase, the Dollar Equivalent of the Aggregate Tranche Commitments shall not exceed $1,000,000,000 in the aggregate as determined on the applicable effective date of such increase;

(f)each increase in the Aggregate Tranche Commitments shall be in a minimum amount of the Dollar Equivalent of $50,000,000 (or such lesser amount as Administrative Agent may agree or as may be necessary to utilize the full amount available under clause (e));

(g)no admission of any Subsequent Lender shall increase the Commitment of any existing Lender without the written consent of such Lender; and

(h)no Default shall exist at the time of any increase.

Section 6.14.2Effectiveness of Increase.  Administrative Agent and Prologis shall determine the effective date (the “Increase Effective Date”) of each increase in the Aggregate Tranche Commitments under this Section 6.14.  Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary,

16257277_9


 

Administrative Agent, Prologis and the applicable Subsequent Lenders and/or Increasing Lenders may agree upon procedures for phasing in any increase to minimize breakage costs or for reasons of convenience.  After an Increase Effective Date, Administrative Agent shall promptly provide to each Lender and to Prologis a revised Schedule 2.1.

Section 6.14.3Conflicting Provisions.  This Section 6.14 shall supersede any provisions in Sections 6.10 or 14.1 to the contrary.

Section 6.15   Defaulting Lenders.

Section 6.15.1Adjustments.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable Law:

(a)Waivers and Amendments.  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 14.1.

(b)Reallocation of Payments.  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 XII or otherwise, and including any amount made available to Administrative Agent by such Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 14.8) 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 amount owing by such Defaulting Lender to Administrative Agent hereunder; second, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to any Fronting Lender hereunder; third, if Prologis so requests (so long as no 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; fourth, 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; fifth, so long as no Default exists, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amount 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 sixth, 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 Loan in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share and (y) such Loan was made at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 8.2 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of all applicable non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loan of such Defaulting Lender.  Any payment, prepayment or other amount paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that is applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender pursuant to this Section 6.15.1(b) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents to the foregoing.

Section 6.15.2Defaulting Lender Cure.  If Prologis, Administrative Agent and each Fronting Lender agree in writing, each in its sole discretion, that a Defaulting Lender should no

 

 

81

 

16257277_9


 

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, such 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 to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders of each applicable Tranche in accordance with their Applicable Tranche Percentages (without giving effect to Section 6.15.1(b)), whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that subject to Section 14.18 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 such Lender having been a Defaulting Lender.

Section 6.15.3Notice of Determination of Defaulting Lender.  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.

Section 6.16   Additional Alternative Currencies.  Prologis may, upon at least 15 Business Days’ (or such lesser number of days as may be agreed to by Administrative Agent) prior written notice to Administrative Agent (which shall promptly notify the applicable Lenders), request that an additional currency be added as an “Alternative Currency” under a Tranche; provided that the requested currency is a lawful currency that is readily available and freely transferable and convertible into Dollars.  Each Lender under the applicable Tranche shall notify Administrative Agent, not later than seven Business Days after receipt of such request, whether it consents, in its sole discretion, to the addition of such currency as an “Alternative Currency” under such Tranche (and any failure by a Lender to respond within such time period shall be deemed not to have consented to such request).  If Administrative Agent and all Lenders under the applicable Tranche consent to the addition of a currency as an “Alternative Currency” under such Tranche (any such currency, an “Additional Alternative Currency”), then (a) Administrative Agent shall so notify Prologis and all Lenders under such Tranche and (b) this Agreement shall be deemed amended to permit Loans under the applicable Tranche in such currency.  If Administrative Agent or any Lender shall fail to consent to any such request, Administrative Agent shall promptly so notify Prologis.  

ARTICLE VII
TAXES, YIELD PROTECTION AND ILLEGALITY

Section 7.1   Taxes.

Section 7.1.1Payments Free of Taxes.  All payments by or on account of any obligation of any Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall be made free and clear of and without reduction or withholding for any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, provided that if any Loan Party shall be required by applicable Law to deduct any Indemnified Taxes (including any Other Taxes) from such payments, then (a) 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) the applicable Credit Party receives an amount equal to the sum it

 

 

82

 

16257277_9


 

would have received had no such deductions been made, (b) such Loan Party shall make such deductions and (c) such Loan Party shall timely pay the full amount deducted to the relevant Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable Law.

Section 7.1.2Indemnification by Loan Parties.  The applicable Loan Party shall indemnify each Credit Party, within ten days after demand therefor, for the full amount of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes (including Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes imposed or asserted on or attributable to amounts payable under this Section) paid or payable by such Credit Party on or with respect to any payment made to such Credit Party by or on account of such Loan Party hereunder or under any other Loan Document, and any penalties, interest and reasonable expenses arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally imposed or asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority.  A certificate as to the amount of such payment or liability delivered to a Loan Party by a Lender (with a copy to Administrative Agent), or by Administrative Agent on its own behalf or on behalf of a Lender, shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error.

Section 7.1.3Evidence of Payments.  As soon as practicable after any payment of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes by any Loan Party to a Governmental Authority, such Loan Party shall deliver to Administrative Agent the original or a copy of a receipt issued by such Governmental Authority evidencing such payment, a copy of the return reporting such payment or other evidence of such payment reasonably satisfactory to Administrative Agent.

Section 7.1.4Status of Lenders.  Any Lender that is entitled to an exemption from or reduction of withholding tax under the law of the jurisdiction in which a Borrower is a resident for tax purposes (including in the case of the United States, a disregarded entity (as defined in Treasury Regulation Section 301.7701-3 of the Code) owned by a resident of the United States or other Person that is engaged in a trade or business in the United States or a qualified REIT subsidiary (as defined in Section 856(i) of the Code)) or is otherwise subject to tax, or any treaty to which any such jurisdiction is a party or which otherwise benefits such Lender, with respect to payments hereunder or under any other Loan Document shall deliver to Prologis (with a copy to Administrative Agent), at the time or times reasonably requested by Prologis or Administrative Agent, such properly completed and executed documentation prescribed by applicable Law as will permit such payments to be made without withholding or at a reduced rate of withholding.  In addition, any Lender, if requested by Prologis or Administrative Agent, shall deliver such other documentation prescribed by applicable Law or reasonably requested by Prologis or Administrative Agent as will enable Prologis or Administrative Agent to determine whether or not such Lender is subject to backup withholding or information reporting requirements.

 

 

83

 

16257277_9


 

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, if a Borrower is a resident for tax purposes in the United States, engaged in the conduct of a trade or business in the United States, a disregarded entity (as defined in Treasury Regulation Section 301.7701-3 of the Code) owned by a resident of the United States, a qualified REIT subsidiary (as defined in Section 856(i) of the Code) or otherwise subject to tax in the United States, any Non-U.S. Lender shall deliver to Prologis and Administrative Agent (in such number of copies as shall be requested by the recipient) on or prior to the date on which such Non-U.S. Lender becomes a Lender under this Agreement (and from time to time thereafter upon the request of Prologis or Administrative Agent, but only if such Non-U.S. Lender is legally entitled to do so), whichever of the following is applicable:

(a)duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, claiming eligibility for benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party,

(b)duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI,

(c)duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8IMY,

(d)in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender claiming the benefits of the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate to the effect that such Non-U.S. Lender is not (A) a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, (B) a “10 percent shareholder” of the applicable Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code or (C) a “controlled foreign corporation” described in Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code and (y) duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, or

(e)any other form prescribed by applicable Law as a basis for claiming exemption from or a reduction in United States Federal withholding tax duly completed together with such supplementary documentation as may be prescribed by applicable Law to permit Prologis or Administrative Agent to determine the withholding or deduction required to be made.

Without limiting the obligations of Lenders set forth above regarding delivery of certain forms and documents to establish each Lender’s status for U.S. withholding tax purposes, each Lender agrees promptly to deliver to Administrative Agent or Prologis, as Administrative Agent or Prologis shall reasonably request, on or prior to the Closing Date (or such other date as such Lender becomes a party to this Agreement), and in a timely fashion thereafter, such other documents and forms required by any relevant taxing authority under the Laws of any other jurisdiction, duly executed and completed by such Lender, as are required under such Laws to confirm such Lender’s entitlement to any available exemption from, or reduction of, applicable withholding taxes in respect of all payments to be made to such Lender outside of the U.S. by Borrowers pursuant to this Agreement or otherwise to establish such Lender’s status for withholding tax purposes in such other jurisdiction.

Each Lender shall promptly (i) notify Administrative Agent of any change in circumstances that would modify or render invalid any claimed exemption from or reduction of Taxes or Other Taxes, and (ii) take such steps as shall not be materially disadvantageous to it, in the reasonable judgment of such Lender, and as may be reasonably necessary (including the re-

 

 

84

 

16257277_9


 

designation of its Lending Office) to avoid any requirement of applicable Law that any Borrower make any deduction or withholding for taxes from amounts payable to such Lender.  Additionally, each Borrower shall promptly deliver to the applicable Credit Party, as such Credit Party shall reasonably request, on or prior to the Closing Date, and in a timely fashion thereafter, such documents and forms required by any relevant taxing authorities under the Laws of any jurisdiction, duly executed and completed by such Borrower, as are required to be furnished by such Credit Party under such Laws in connection with any payment by such Credit Party of Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes, or otherwise in connection with the Loan Documents, with respect to such jurisdiction.

Section 7.1.5Exemption Representation.

(a)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 (and, in the case of a Lender that agrees to make Loans under a Tranche, as of the date such agreement become effective), 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 under each Tranche with respect to which it has a commitment to make Loans without any reduction or withholding in respect of any Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes and without any amount being required to be paid by any applicable Borrower pursuant to Section 7.1.2; provided that the Exemption Representation shall not apply to any withholding tax imposed at any time on payments made by or on behalf of a Foreign Obligor.

(b)Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, no Borrower shall be obligated to pay any amount under this Section 7.1 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 7.1.4.

Section 7.1.6Treatment of Certain Refunds.  If any Credit Party determines, in its sole discretion, that it has received a refund of any Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by any Loan Party or with respect to which any Loan Party has paid additional amounts pursuant to this Section, it shall pay to such Loan Party an amount equal to such refund (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by such Loan Party under this Section with respect to the Taxes giving rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of such Credit Party, and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund), provided that such Loan Party, upon the request of such Credit Party, agrees to repay the amount paid over to such Loan Party (plus any penalties, interest or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority) to such Credit Party in the event such Credit Party is required to repay such refund to such Governmental Authority.  This Section shall not be construed to require any Credit Party to make available its tax returns (or any other information relating to its taxes that it deems confidential) to any Borrower or any other Person.

Section 7.1.7FATCA.  If a payment made to a Credit Party under any Loan Document would be subject to United States Federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Credit

16257277_9


 

Party were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Credit Party shall deliver to each applicable Borrower and Administrative Agent,

(a) at the time or times prescribed by Law and at such time or times reasonably requested by any Borrower or Administrative Agent, such documentation prescribed by applicable Law (including 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 any such Borrower or Administrative Agent as may be necessary for such Borrower or Administrative Agent to comply with its obligations under FATCA, to determine that such Credit Party has or has not complied with FATCA and, as necessary, to determine the amount to deduct and withhold any payment pursuant to FATCA.

(b)If any documentation provided pursuant to paragraph (a) of this Section 7.1.7 expires or becomes materially inaccurate, the relevant Credit Party shall promptly provide updated documentation to the relevant Borrower or Administrative Agent.

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

Solely for purposes of this Section 7.1.7, “FATCA” shall include (i) any treaty, law or regulation of any other jurisdiction, or relating to an intergovernmental agreement between the US and any other jurisdiction which (in either case) facilitates the implementation of Sections 1471 through 1474 of the Code and regulations or official interpretations thereof and (ii) any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.

Section 7.2  Illegality.  If any Lender determines that any Law has made it unlawful, or that any Governmental Authority has asserted that it is unlawful, for such Lender or its applicable Lending Office to make, maintain or fund Eurocurrency Rate Loans in any currency, or to determine or charge interest rates based upon the Eurocurrency Rate, or any Governmental Authority has imposed material restrictions on the authority of such Lender to purchase or sell or to take deposits of any applicable currency in the applicable interbank market, then, on notice thereof by such Lender to Prologis through Administrative Agent, any obligation of such Lender to make, continue or convert Loans to Eurocurrency Rate Loans in the affected currency shall be suspended until such Lender notifies Administrative Agent and Prologis that the circumstances giving rise to such determination no longer exist.  Upon receipt of such notice, the applicable Borrower shall, upon demand from such Lender (with a copy to Administrative Agent), prepay or, if applicable and such Loans are denominated in Dollars under the U.S. Tranche, Yen under the Yen Tranche, Sterling under the Sterling Tranche or Euro under the Euro Tranche, convert all applicable Eurocurrency Rate Loans of such Lender to Base Rate Loans, ABR Rate Loans or Substitute Rate Loans, as applicable, either on the last day of the Interest Period therefor or on such earlier date on which such Lender may not lawfully continue to maintain such Eurocurrency Rate Loans.  Upon any such prepayment or conversion, the applicable Borrower shall also pay accrued interest on the amount so prepaid or converted.

 

 

86

 

16257277_9


 

Section 7.3  Inability to Determine Rates.  If the Tranche Required Lenders determine for their Tranche (other than with respect to the Euro Tranche)  that (a) deposits are not being offered to banks in the applicable interbank market for the currency, amount and Interest Period for such Loans, (b) adequate and reasonable means do not exist for determining the Eurocurrency Rate for the requested Interest Period for such Loans or (c) the Eurocurrency Rate for any requested Interest Period for such Loans does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lenders of funding such Loans for the requested Interest Period, Administrative Agent will promptly so notify Prologis, each Borrower in the affected Tranche and each Lender in the affected Tranche.  Thereafter, the obligation of Lenders to make or maintain Eurocurrency Rate Loans in the affected currency or currencies for the applicable Interest Period in the affected Tranche shall be suspended until Administrative Agent (upon the instruction of the applicable Tranche Required Lenders) revokes such notice.  Upon receipt of such notice, the applicable Borrower may (i) revoke any pending request for a Borrowing of, conversion to or continuation of Eurocurrency Rate Loans in the affected currency or currencies or (ii) if such Borrower elects not to revoke such request, will be deemed to have converted such request into a request for a Borrowing of or conversion to (x) in the case of Loans denominated in Dollars, Base Rate Loans and (y) in the case of Loans denominated in any other currency, Substitute Rate Loans.

Section 7.4  Increased Costs Generally.

Section 7.4.1Increased Costs.  If any Change in Law shall:

(a)impose, modify or deem applicable any reserve, special deposit, compulsory loan, insurance charge or similar requirement against assets of, deposits with or for the account of, or credit extended or participated in by, any Credit Party (except any reserve requirement contemplated by Section 7.4.4);

(b)subject any Credit Party to any tax of any kind whatsoever with respect to this Agreement or any Loan made by it, or change the basis of taxation of payments to such Credit Party in respect thereof (except for Indemnified Taxes or Other Taxes covered by Section 7.1 and the imposition of, or any change in the rate of, any Excluded Tax); or

(c)impose on any Credit Party or any applicable interbank market any other condition, cost or expense affecting this Agreement or any Loans made by such Credit Party;

and the result of any of the foregoing shall be to increase the cost to such Credit Party of making or maintaining any Loan (or of maintaining its obligation to make any Loan), or to reduce the amount of any sum received or receivable by such Credit Party hereunder (whether of principal, interest or any other amount), then, upon request of such Credit Party, Prologis will pay (or cause the applicable Borrower to pay) to such Credit Party, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Credit Party for such additional costs incurred or reduction suffered.

Section 7.4.2Capital Requirements.  If any Credit Party determines that any Change in Law affecting such Credit Party or any Lending Office of such Credit Party or such Credit Party’s holding company, if any, regarding capital requirements or liquidity has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Credit Party’s capital or on the capital of such

 

 

87

 

16257277_9


 

Credit Party’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Credit Party or the Loans made by such Credit Party to a level below that which such Credit Party or such Credit Party’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change in Law (taking into consideration such Credit Party’s policies and the policies of such Credit Party’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time Prologis will pay (or cause the applicable Borrower to pay) to such Credit Party, such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Credit Party or such Credit Party’s holding company for any such reduction suffered.

Section 7.4.3Certificates for Reimbursement.  Any Credit Party requesting compensation pursuant to this Section 7.4 shall deliver to Prologis (with a copy to Administrative Agent) a certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the basis for such request and a calculation of the amount necessary to compensate such Credit Party or its holding company, as the case may be, as specified in Section 7.4.1 or 7.4.2 above, and any such certificate shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error.  Prologis shall pay (or cause the applicable Borrower to pay) such Credit Party the amount shown as due on any such certificate within 15 days after receipt thereof.

Section 7.4.4Additional Reserve Requirements. Each applicable Borrower shall pay to each Lender, (a) as long as such Lender shall be required to maintain reserves with respect to liabilities or assets consisting of or including Eurocurrency funds or deposits (currently known as “Eurocurrency liabilities”), additional interest on the unpaid principal amount of each Eurocurrency Rate Loan equal to the actual costs of such reserves allocated to such Loan by such Lender (as determined by such Lender in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error), and (b) as long as such Lender shall be required to comply with any reserve ratio requirement or analogous requirement of any other central banking or financial regulatory authority imposed in respect of the funding of the Eurocurrency Rate Loans, such additional costs (expressed as a percentage per annum and rounded upwards, if necessary, to the nearest five decimal places) equal to the actual costs allocated to such Loan by such Lender (as determined by such Lender in good faith, which determination shall be conclusive absent demonstrable error), which in each case shall be due and payable on each date on which interest is payable on such Loan, provided each applicable Borrower shall have received at least 15 days’ prior notice (with a copy to Administrative Agent) of such additional interest or costs from such Lender.  If a Lender fails to give notice 15 days prior to the relevant Interest Payment Date, such additional interest or costs shall be due and payable 15 days from receipt of such notice.

Section 7.4.5Limitations on Lender Claims.  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 7.4, no Lender shall be entitled to compensation for any cost, increased costs or liability resulting from a failure by such Lender to comply with any request from or requirement of any central banking or financial regulatory authority (whether or not having the force of law, but if not having the force of law being a request of a nature with which banks generally are expected or accustomed to comply).

 

 

88

 

16257277_9


 

Section 7.5Compensation for 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:

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

(b)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 Loan of (or to be made by) such Lender to such Borrower (other than a Base Rate Loan or ABR Rate Loan) on the date or in the amount notified by such Borrower;

(c)any failure by such Borrower to make payment of any Loan (or interest due thereon) in the currency in which such Loan is denominated; or

(d)any assignment of a Eurocurrency Rate 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 14.12;

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 or, solely in the case of subsection (c) above, any foreign exchange losses (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 7.5, (A) each Lender shall be deemed to have funded each Eurocurrency Rate Loan made by it at the Eurocurrency 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 Eurocurrency Rate Loan was in fact so funded; and (B) the losses and expenses of any Lender resulting from any event described in clause (a) above, any failure by a Borrower to borrow or continue a Loan as contemplated by clause (b) above or any assignment pursuant to clause (d) above shall not exceed the excess, if any, of (i) the amount of interest that would have accrued on the principal amount of the applicable Loan had such event not occurred, at the Eurocurrency Rate 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 7.5 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

 

 

89

 

16257277_9


 

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 7.6  Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of Lenders.

Section 7.6.1Designation of a Different Lending Office.  If any Credit Party requests compensation under Section 7.4, or any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Credit Party or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Credit Party pursuant to Section 7.1, or if any Credit Party gives a notice pursuant to Section 7.2, then such Credit Party shall use reasonable efforts to designate a different Lending Office for funding or booking its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligations hereunder to another of its offices, branches or affiliates, if, in the reasonable judgment of such Credit Party, such designation or assignment (a) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 7.1 or 7.4, as the case may be, in the future, or eliminate the need for the notice pursuant to Section 7.2, and (b) in each case, would not subject such Credit Party to any unreimbursed cost or expense and would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Credit Party.  Prologis hereby agrees to pay (or to cause the applicable Borrower to pay) all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by any Credit Party in connection with any such designation or assignment.

Section 7.6.2Delay in Requests.  Failure or delay on the part of any Credit Party to demand compensation pursuant to Section 7.1, 7.4 or 7.5 shall not constitute a waiver of such Credit Party’s right to demand such compensation; provided that no Borrower shall be required to compensate a Credit Party pursuant to any such Section for any Indemnified Taxes, Other Taxes, increased cost, reduction in return, funding loss or other amount (any of the foregoing, a “Compensation Amount”) incurred or suffered more than six months prior to the date that such Credit Party notified Prologis of the Change in Law or other event giving rise to such Compensation Amount and of such Credit Party’s intention to claim compensation therefor (except that, if the Change in Law or other event giving rise to such Compensation Amount is retroactive, then the six month period referred to above shall be extended to include the period of retroactive effect thereof).

Section 7.6.3Replacement of Lenders.  If any Lender requests compensation under Section 7.4, or if any Borrower is required to pay any additional amount to any Lender or any Governmental Authority for the account of any Lender pursuant to Section 7.1, Prologis may replace such Lender in accordance with Section 14.12.

Section 7.7  Qualified Lender Status.  If a Lender notifies Administrative Agent (orally or in writing) that it is a Qualified Lender with respect to the imposition of a withholding tax, and (a) such Qualified Lender is subject to withholding taxes immediately prior to and after the funding of the applicable Loan, and (b) there were Fronting Lenders available to make such Loan on behalf of such Lender as set forth in Section 2.2.2(a), 3.2.2(a), 4.2.2(a) or 5.2.2(a), as applicable, then the applicable Borrower shall not be required to pay any additional amounts under Section 7.1 with respect to withholding taxes imposed on the payments to such Lender on account of such Loan. Furthermore, Administrative Agent shall be permitted to rely solely on any notices, certificates or Assignment and Assumptions provided by any Lender regarding its status as a Qualified Lender, and Administrative Agent shall not be required to independently verify such Lender’s status or request any updates from such Lender as to whether it remains a

 

 

90

 

16257277_9


 

Qualified Lender at the time of any request for a Loan. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Section 7.7 shall not limit any right or remedy of any Lender under this Article VII with respect to any Loan to the extent such Lender ceases to be a Qualified Lender due to a Change in Law after the funding of such Loan.

Section 7.8  Survival.  All obligations under this Article VII shall survive termination of the Aggregate Tranche Commitments and repayment of all other Obligations hereunder.

108

and may exercise the same as though it were not Administrative Agent, and the term “Lender” or “Lenders” shall, unless otherwise expressly indicated or the context otherwise requires, include the Person serving as Administrative Agent hereunder in its individual capacity.  Bank of America (or any successor Administrative Agent hereunder) and its Affiliates may accept deposits from, lend money to, act as the financial advisor or in any other advisory capacity for and generally engage in any kind of business with any Company and its Affiliates as if Bank of America (or such successor) were not Administrative Agent hereunder and without any duty to account therefor to Lenders.

Section 13.3  Exculpatory Provisions.  Administrative Agent shall have no duties or obligations except those expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents and its duties hereunder shall be administrative in nature.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Administrative Agent:

(a)shall not be subject to any fiduciary or other implied duties, regardless of whether a Default has occurred and is continuing;

(b)shall not have any duty to take any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers, except discretionary rights and powers expressly contemplated hereby or by the other Loan Documents that Administrative Agent is required to exercise as directed in writing by Required Lenders (or such other number, percentage or group of Lenders as shall be expressly provided for herein or in the other Loan Documents), provided that Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action that, in its opinion or the opinion of its counsel, may expose Administrative Agent to liability or that is contrary to any Loan Document or applicable Law, including for the avoidance of doubt any action that may be in violation of the automatic stay under any Debtor Relief Law or that may effect a forfeiture, modification or termination of property of a Defaulting Lender in violation of any Debtor Relief Law; and

(c)shall not, except as expressly set forth herein and in the other Loan Documents, have any duty to disclose, or be liable for failure to disclose, any information relating to any Company or any of its Affiliates that is communicated to or obtained by Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates.

Administrative Agent shall not be liable for any action taken or not taken by it (i) with the consent or at the request of Required Lenders (or such other number, percentage or group of Lenders as shall be necessary, or as Administrative Agent shall believe in good faith shall be necessary, under the circumstances as provided in Sections 14.1 and 12.2) or (ii) in the absence of its own gross negligence or willful misconduct as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction by final and nonappealable judgment.  Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge of any Default unless and until notice describing such Default is given to Administrative Agent by a Loan Party or a Lender.

Administrative Agent shall not be responsible for or have any duty to ascertain or inquire into (1) any statement, warranty or representation made in or in connection with this Agreement or any other Loan Document (other than its own statements, warranties and representations), (2) the contents of any certificate, report or other document delivered hereunder or thereunder or in connection herewith or therewith, (3) the performance or observance of any of the covenants,

Section 13.5  Delegation of Duties.  Administrative Agent may perform any of its duties and exercise its rights and powers hereunder or under any other Loan Document by or through any one or more sub-agents appointed by Administrative Agent.  Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent may perform any of its duties and exercise its rights and powers by or through its Related Parties.  The exculpatory provisions of this Article shall apply to any such sub-agent and to the Related Parties of Administrative Agent and any such sub-agent, and shall apply to their respective activities in connection with the syndication of the credit facilities provided for herein as well as activities as Administrative Agent. Administrative Agent shall not be responsible to any Credit Party for the negligence or misconduct of any sub-agent except to the extent that a court of competent jurisdiction determines in a final and nonappealable judgment that Administrative Agent acted with gross negligence or willful misconduct in the selection of such sub-agent.

Section 13.6  Resignation of Administrative Agent.  Administrative Agent may at any time give notice of its resignation to the Lenders and Prologis.  Upon receipt of any such notice of resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right, in consultation with Prologis, to appoint a successor, which shall be a bank with an office in the United States, or an Affiliate of a bank with an office in the United States.  If no such successor shall have been so appointed by Required Lenders and shall have accepted such appointment within 30 days after retiring Administrative Agent gives notice of its resignation, then retiring Administrative Agent may, on behalf of the Lenders, appoint a successor Administrative Agent meeting the qualifications set forth above; provided that if Administrative Agent shall notify Prologis and the Lenders that no qualifying Person has accepted such appointment, then such resignation shall nonetheless become effective in accordance with such notice and (1) retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (except that in the case of any collateral security held by Administrative Agent on behalf of the

 

 

110

Lenders under the Loan Documents, the retiring Administrative Agent shall continue to hold such collateral security until such time as a successor Administrative Agent is appointed) and (2) all payments, communications and determinations provided to be made by, to or through Administrative Agent shall instead be made by or to each Lender directly, until such time as the Required Lenders appoint a successor Administrative Agent as provided for above in this Section.  Upon the acceptance of a successor’s appointment as Administrative Agent hereunder, such successor shall succeed to and become vested with all of the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring (or retired) Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from all of its duties and obligations hereunder and under the other Loan Documents (if not already discharged therefrom as provided above in this Section).  The fees payable by Prologis to a successor Administrative Agent shall be the same as (but without duplication with) those payable to its predecessor unless otherwise agreed between Prologis and such successor.  After the retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder and under the other Loan Documents, the provisions of this Article and Section 14.4 shall continue in effect for the benefit of such retiring Administrative Agent, its sub-agents and their respective Related Parties in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by any of them while the retiring Administrative Agent was acting as Administrative Agent.

Section 13.7  Non-Reliance on Administrative Agent and Other Lenders.  Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance upon Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own credit analysis and decision to enter into this Agreement.  Each Lender also acknowledges that it will, independently and without reliance upon Administrative Agent or any other Lender or any of their Related Parties and based on such documents and information as it shall from time to time deem appropriate, continue to make its own decisions in taking or not taking action under or based upon this Agreement, any other Loan Document or any related agreement or any document furnished hereunder or thereunder.

Section 13.8  No Other Duties, Etc.  Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, no Person named on the cover page hereof or elsewhere herein as Syndication Agent, a Joint Lead Arranger or a Joint Bookrunner shall have any powers, duties or responsibilities under this Agreement or any of the other Loan Documents, except, if applicable, in its capacity as a Lender hereunder.

Section 13.9  Administrative Agent May File Proofs of Claim.  In case of the pendency of any receivership, insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, adjustment, composition or other judicial proceeding relative to any Loan Party, Administrative Agent (irrespective of whether the principal of any Loan shall then be due and payable as herein expressed or by declaration or otherwise and irrespective of whether Administrative Agent shall have made any demand on any Borrower) shall be entitled and empowered, by intervention in such proceeding or otherwise:

Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to authorize Administrative Agent to authorize, consent to, accept or adopt on behalf of any Lender any plan of reorganization, arrangement, adjustment or composition affecting the Obligations or the rights of any Lender or to authorize Administrative Agent to vote in respect of the claim of any Lender in any such proceeding.
