(s)    For the purposes of the Credit Agreement, the definition of “Term Facility Maturity Date” as amended herein shall be considered the applicable “Extended Termination Date” and each Term Lender consenting to this Amendment No. 3 shall be considered an “Extending Lender” with respect to the Term Advances and Term Commitments of such Lender.
