(d)                                 as of the date such Party executes this Agreement, Joinder Agreement, or Transfer Agreement, as applicable, it has no actual knowledge of any event that, due to any fiduciary or similar duty to any other person or entity, would prevent it from taking any action required of it under this Agreement.
