The Junior Priority Representative is being designated as such by the Borrower in accordance with Section 10 of the Intercreditor Agreement.

C. Accordingly, the Additional Representative and the Borrower agree as follows, for the benefit of the Additional Representative, the Borrower and each other party to the Intercreditor Agreement:

Section 2. Representations, Warranties and Acknowledgement of the Additional Representative.

Section 3. Counterparts. This Representative Joinder Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall constitute an original, but all of which when taken together shall constitute a single contract.

The parties shall endeavor in good-faith negotiations to replace the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions.
