The obligations of each Senior Secured Creditor under the Senior Finance Documents are several.

A Senior Secured Creditor may, except as otherwise stated in the Senior Finance Documents, separately enforce its rights under the Senior Finance Documents.

Any interest accruing under this sub-clause 9.4.1 shall be immediately payable by the Company on demand in writing by the Intercreditor Agent or the relevant Facility Agent.

 

- 88 -


 

9.4.2

If any Unpaid Sum consists of all or part of an Advance which became due on a day which was not the last day of an Interest Period relating to that Advance:

10.

CHANGES TO THE CALCULATION OF INTEREST

 

10.1

Absence of quotations

Subject to Clause 10.2 (Market disruption), if LIBOR or HIBOR is to be determined by reference to the Reference Banks under any Facility Agreement but a Reference Bank does not supply a quotation on the Quotation Day under such Facility Agreement, the applicable LIBOR or HIBOR for the purpose of such Facility Agreement shall be determined on the basis of the quotations of the remaining Reference Banks under such Facility Agreement. Where LIBOR or HIBOR is to be determined by reference to the Reference Banks under any Facility Agreement and none or only one Reference Bank supplies a quotation, then LIBOR or, as the case may be, HIBOR shall be treated as incapable of being determined under such Facility Agreement.

 

10.2

Market disruption

 

 

10.2.1

If a Market Disruption Event occurs in relation to an Advance under a Facility for any Interest Period, the relevant Facility Agent shall promptly notify the Intercreditor Agent of the fact and that this Clause 10.2 is in operation and the Intercreditor Agent shall promptly notify the Company and the other Lenders.

 

 

10.2.2

For the purpose of this Clause 10.2, “Market Disruption Event” means:

 

 

(a)

in the case of a US dollar Advance:

 

 

(i)

it is not possible, in respect of the Facility under which such Advance is made, to determine LIBOR in accordance with the provisions of the relevant Facility Agreement and Clause 10.1 (Absence of quotations); or

 

 

(ii)

before the close of business in London on the Quotation Day for the relevant Interest Period, the Intercreditor Agent has been notified by a Lender or Lenders (whose participations in such Advance exceed 50 per cent of the Advance) that the cost to it/them of obtaining matching deposits in the London interbank market would be in excess of LIBOR;

 

- 89 -


 

(b)

in the case of a HK dollar Advance:

 

 

(i)

23.12.4

If, at the time of expiry of the period specified in sub-clause 23.12.2 or, as the case may be, sub-clause 23.12.3 above, the outgoing Agent cannot find a successor owing to the unwillingness of any proposed successor to accept the terms and conditions which apply to the outgoing Agent, the Company shall offer to any proposed successor such terms and conditions as are consistent with the role to be performed, taking into account the current market for the performance of such duties and the then existing circumstances of the Projects.

For the purposes of this Clause 23.15.1, each Hedging Counterparty shall, in respect of each Hedging Agreement entered into by it, be deemed to have made an Advance to the Company in an amount equal to the Realised Hedge Loss (if any) under the Hedging Agreement to which such Hedging Counterparty is party.

 

 

23.15.2

Clause 23.15.1 shall not apply to the extent that the Intercreditor Agent is otherwise actually indemnified or reimbursed by any Party under any other provision of the Senior Finance Documents.

SHARING AMONG THE SENIOR SECURED CREDITORS

 

25.1

Payments to Senior Secured Creditors

 

 

If a Senior Secured Creditor (a “Recovering Senior Secured Creditor”) receives or recovers any amount from an Obligor other than in accordance with the provisions of the Senior Finance Documents (excluding any such provision which permits the setting off of obligations owed by such Obligor against obligations owed to it by such Recovering Senior Secured Creditor but allowing, for the avoidance of doubt, any such provision in any Hedging Agreement permitting netting off between transactions under such Hedging Agreement) and applies that amount to a payment due under the Senior Finance Documents then:

 

 

25.1.1

the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor shall, within 5 Business Days, notify details of the receipt or recovery, to the Intercreditor Agent;

 

- 112 -


 

25.1.2

the Intercreditor Agent shall determine whether the receipt or recovery is in excess of the amount the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor would have been paid had the receipt or recovery been received and distributed in accordance with this Agreement, without taking account of any Tax which would be imposed on that Agent in relation to the receipt, recovery or distribution; and

 

 

25.1.3

the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor shall, within 10 Business Days of demand by the Intercreditor Agent, pay to the Intercreditor Agent an amount (the “Sharing Payment”) equal to such receipt or recovery less any amount which the Intercreditor Agent determines may be retained by the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor as its share of any payment to be made, in accordance with this Agreement.

 

25.2

Redistribution of payments

 

 

The Intercreditor Agent shall treat the Sharing Payment as if it had been paid by the Company and distribute it between the Senior Secured Creditors (other than the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor) in accordance with this Agreement.

 

25.3

Recovering Senior Secured Creditor’s Rights

 

 

25.3.1

On a distribution by the Intercreditor Agent under 25.2 (Redistribution of payments), the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor shall be subrogated to the rights of the Senior Secured Creditors which have shared in the redistribution.

 

 

25.3.2

If and to the extent that the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor is not able to rely on its rights under sub-clause 25.3.1 above, the Company shall be liable to the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor for a debt equal to the Sharing Payment which is immediately due and payable.

 

25.4

Reversal of redistribution

 

 

If any part of the Sharing Payment received or recovered by a Recovering Senior Secured Creditor becomes repayable and is repaid by such Recovering Senior Secured Creditor, then:

 

 

25.4.1

each Senior Secured Creditor which has received a share of such Sharing Payment pursuant to Clause 25.2 (Redistribution of payments) shall, upon request of the Intercreditor Agent, pay to the Intercreditor Agent for account of that Recovering Senior Secured Creditor an amount equal to the appropriate part of its share of the Sharing Payment (together with an amount as is necessary to reimburse that Recovering Senior Secured Creditor for its proportion of any interest on the Sharing Payment which that Recovering Senior Secured Creditor is required to pay); and

 

- 113 -


 

25.4.2

that Recovering Senior Secured Creditor’s rights of subrogation in respect of any reimbursement shall be cancelled and the Company shall be liable to the reimbursing Senior Secured Creditor for the amount so reimbursed.

 

25.5

This Clause 25 shall not apply to the extent that the Recovering Senior Secured Creditor would not, after making any payment pursuant to this Clause, have a valid and enforceable claim against the relevant Obligor.

 

25.6

Benefit

 

 

The provisions of this Clause 25 are for the sole benefit of the Senior Secured Creditors and may be waived or amended by the Required Lenders without the consent of the Company provided there is no increase in the liability of the Company as a result.
