Indenture; Supplemental Indentures; Notes Issuance

On October 28, 2020, T‑Mobile USA, Inc. ( “T‑Mobile USA”), a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of T‑Mobile US, Inc. (the “Company”), issued $1.0 billion in aggregate principal amount of its 2.250% Senior Secured Notes due 2031 (the “2031 Notes”), $1.25 billion in aggregate principal amount of its 3.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2041 (the “2041 Notes”), $1.5 billion in aggregate principal amount of its 3.300% Senior Secured Notes due 2051 (the “2051 Notes”) and $1.0 billion in aggregate principal amount of its 3.600% Senior Secured Notes due 2060 (the “2060 Notes” and, together with the 2031 Notes, the 2041 Notes and the 2051 Notes, the “Notes” and the offering of the Notes, the “Notes Offering”) pursuant to the Indenture (the “Base Indenture”), dated as of April 9, 2020, among T‑Mobile USA, the Company and Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as trustee (the “Trustee”), as amended and supplemented by (i) the Fourteenth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of October 28, 2020 (the “Fourteenth Supplemental Indenture”), with respect to the 2031 Notes, (ii) the Twelfth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of October 6, 2020 (the “Twelfth Supplemental Indenture”), and the Fifteenth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of October 28, 2020 (the “Fifteenth Supplemental Indenture” and collectively with the Twelfth Supplemental Indenture, the “2041 Notes Supplemental Indenture”), with respect to the 2041 Notes, (iii) the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of October 6, 2020 (the “Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture”), and the Sixteenth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of October 28, 2020 (the “Sixteenth Supplemental Indenture” and collectively with the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture, the “2051 Notes Supplemental Indenture”), with respect to the 2051 Notes, and (iv) the Seventeenth Supplemental Indenture, dated as of October 28, 2020 (the “Seventeenth Supplemental Indenture”), with respect to the 2060 Notes, each among T‑Mobile USA, the Company, the other guarantors party thereto and the Trustee (the Base Indenture, as amended and supplemented by each of the Fourteenth Supplemental Indenture, the 2041 Notes Supplemental Indenture, the 2051 Notes Supplemental Indenture and the Seventeenth Supplemental Indenture, each an “Indenture” and, collectively, the “Indentures”).

The 2031 Notes bear interest at a rate of 2.250% per year and mature on November 15, 2031.  The 2041 Notes bear interest at a rate of 3.000% per year and mature on February 15, 2041.  The 2051 Notes bear interest at a rate of 3.300% per year and mature on February 15, 2051.  The 2060 Notes bear interest at a rate of 3.600% per year and mature on November 15, 2060. T‑Mobile USA will pay interest on the 2031 Notes and the 2060 Notes semiannually in arrears on each May 15 and November 15, commencing May 15, 2021.  T‑Mobile USA will pay interest on the 2041 Notes and the 2051 Notes semiannually in arrears on each February 15 and August 15, commencing February 15, 2021.  The net proceeds from the sale of the Notes are expected to be used for general corporate purposes, which may include among other things, financing acquisitions of additional spectrum and refinancing existing indebtedness on an ongoing basis.

The 2041 Notes are an additional issuance of the 3.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2041 issued by T‑Mobile USA in an aggregate principal amount of $1.25 billion on October 6, 2020 (the “Existing 2041 Notes”), are fungible with the Existing 2041 Notes, and are consolidated with and form a single series with the Existing 2041 Notes.  The 2051 Notes are an additional issuance of the 3.300% Senior Secured Notes due 2051 issued by T‑Mobile USA in an aggregate principal amount of $1.5 billion on October 6, 2020 (the “Existing 2051 Notes”), are fungible with the Existing 2051 Notes, and are consolidated with and form a single series with the Existing 2051 Notes.  The 2041 Notes and 2051 Notes have the same terms as the Existing 2041 Notes and the Existing 2051 Notes, respectively, other than the settlement date and offering price, and have the same CUSIP number as the Existing 2041 Notes and the Existing 2051 Notes (other than the 2041 Notes and the 2051 Notes sold pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), which will have a separate CUSIP number from the Existing 2041 Notes and the Existing 2051 Notes, respectively, for the first 40 days after the settlement date).

T‑Mobile USA’s obligations under the Notes will be guaranteed (such guarantees, the “Guarantees”) by the Company and each wholly-owned subsidiary of T‑Mobile USA that is not an Excluded Subsidiary (as defined in the Base Indenture) and is or becomes an obligor of the Credit Agreement, dated as of April 1, 2020 (the “Credit Agreement”), among T‑Mobile USA, as borrower, the banks and financial institutions party thereto as lenders and issuing banks, and Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch, as administrative agent, or issues or guarantees certain capital markets debt securities, and any future direct or indirect subsidiary of the Company or any subsidiary thereof that owns capital stock of T‑Mobile USA.  The Guarantees will be provided on a senior secured basis except for the Guarantees of Sprint Corporation (“Sprint”), Sprint Communications, Inc. and Sprint Capital Corporation (collectively, the “Unsecured Guarantors”), which will be provided on a senior unsecured basis (the “Unsecured Guarantees”).

The Notes and the Guarantees will be T‑Mobile USA’s and the guarantors’ unsubordinated obligations; will be secured (except for the Unsecured Guarantees) by a first priority security interest, subject to permitted liens, in substantially all of T‑Mobile USA’s and such guarantors’ present and future assets other than Excluded Assets (as defined in the Collateral Agreement, dated as of April 1, 2020 (the “Collateral Agreement”), by and among T‑Mobile USA, the Company and the other grantors party thereto in favor of Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, as collateral trustee) on an equal and ratable basis with the obligations under T‑Mobile USA’s existing secured notes and the Credit Agreement and obligations under any other existing and future permitted first priority secured obligations; will be senior in right of payment to any future indebtedness of T‑Mobile USA or any guarantor to the extent that such future indebtedness provides by its terms that it is subordinated in right of payment to the Notes and the Guarantees; will be effectively senior to all existing and future unsecured indebtedness of T‑Mobile USA or any guarantor (other than the Unsecured Guarantors) and any future indebtedness of T‑Mobile USA or any guarantor (other than the Unsecured Guarantors) secured by a junior lien on the collateral, in each case to the extent of the value of the collateral securing the obligations under the Notes; will be equal in right of payment with any of T‑Mobile USA’s and the guarantors’ existing and future indebtedness and other liabilities that are not by their terms subordinated in right of payment to the Notes, including, without limitation, obligations under T‑Mobile USA’s existing secured notes and the Credit Agreement, T‑Mobile USA’s existing unsecured notes and the existing unsecured notes issued by the Unsecured Guarantors; and will be structurally subordinated to all of the liabilities and other obligations of the subsidiaries of the Company that are not obligors with respect to the Notes, including the existing spectrum-backed notes issued under Sprint’s spectrum securitization program, factoring arrangements and tower obligations.

If T‑Mobile USA experiences specific kinds of changes of control as set forth in the Indentures and any such change of control is accompanied or followed by ratings downgrades during a specified period of time after the change of control, any holder of Notes may require T‑Mobile USA to repurchase all or a portion of the Notes so held at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount of such Notes, plus any accrued and unpaid interest on the Notes repurchased to, but not including, the date of repurchase.

The Indentures contain covenants that, among other things, restrict the ability of T‑Mobile USA and certain of its subsidiaries to (i) create liens or other encumbrances in respect of borrowed money, (ii) merge, consolidate or sell, or otherwise dispose of, substantially all of their assets or (iii) grant a subsidiary guarantee of debt incurred under the Credit Agreement or certain capital markets debt without also providing a guarantee of the Notes.  These limitations are subject to a number of important qualifications and exceptions.

Each Indenture contains customary Events of Default (as defined in each Indenture), including:


default for 30 days in the payment when due of interest on the Notes of the applicable series;


default in the payment when due (at maturity, upon redemption or otherwise) of the principal of, or premium, if any, on, the Notes of the applicable series;


failure by T‑Mobile USA or its subsidiaries to comply with their other obligations under the Indenture, subject to notice and grace periods;


payment defaults and accelerations with respect to other indebtedness of T‑Mobile USA and certain of its subsidiaries in the aggregate principal amount of at least the greater of (x) $250.0 million and (y) 1.0% of Consolidated Cash Flow (as defined in the Base Indenture) on a pro forma basis over a four-quarter test period;


specified events involving bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization of T‑Mobile USA or certain of its subsidiaries;


failure by T‑Mobile USA or certain of its subsidiaries to pay certain final judgments aggregating in excess of the greater of (x) $250.0 million and (y) 1.0% of Consolidated Cash Flow on a pro forma basis over a four-quarter test period within 60 consecutive days of such final judgment;


other than in connection with satisfaction of the obligations under the applicable Indenture or release of collateral in accordance with the terms of the applicable Indenture, (i) a security interest with respect to collateral having a fair market value in excess of 5% of Consolidated Total Assets (as defined in the Base Indenture) ceases to be valid and perfected or is declared invalid or unenforceable, subject to notice and a grace period, or (ii) T‑Mobile USA or a guarantor asserts in a pleading in any court of competent jurisdiction that any security interest securing the Notes is invalid or unenforceable.

Upon an Event of Default, the trustee or the holders of at least 30% in aggregate principal amount of the Notes of the applicable series then outstanding may declare all the Notes of such series to be due and payable immediately.  In the case of Events of Default relating to bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization, all outstanding Notes of the applicable series will become due and payable immediately without further action or notice.

The above description of the Indentures is a summary only and is subject to, and qualified entirely by, the Base Indenture, the Twelfth Supplemental Indenture, the Thirteenth Supplemental Indenture, the Fourteenth Supplemental Indenture, the Fifteenth Supplemental Indenture, the Sixteenth Supplemental Indenture and the Seventeenth Supplemental Indenture, which are filed as Exhibits 4.1, 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, 4.6 and 4.7, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Press releases regarding the Notes Offering were issued in accordance with Rule 135c under the Securities Act.  Copies of such press releases are filed as Exhibits 99.1 and 99.2 and incorporated herein by reference.

Registration Rights Agreement

On October 28, 2020, the Company, T‑Mobile USA and the other guarantors party thereto entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, as representatives of the initial purchasers in the Notes Offering (the “Initial Purchasers”).

Under the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, T‑Mobile USA, the Company and the other guarantors agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to file a registration statement covering an offer to exchange the Notes for Exchange Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) within 30 calendar days following the due date for the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the first year in which Sprint and its subsidiaries have been included in the consolidated financial statements of the Company for at least nine months.  T‑Mobile USA also agreed to use commercially reasonable efforts to have such registration statement declared effective promptly thereafter and to consummate the Exchange Offer (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) not later than 60 days after the date such registration statement becomes effective.  Alternatively, if T‑Mobile USA is unable to consummate the Exchange Offer under certain conditions, or if holders of the Notes cannot participate in, or cannot obtain freely transferable Exchange Securities in connection with, the Exchange Offer for certain specified reasons, then T‑Mobile USA and the guarantors will use commercially reasonable efforts to file a shelf registration statement within the times specified in the Registration Rights Agreement to facilitate resale of the Notes.  All registration expenses (subject to limitations specified in the Registration Rights Agreement) will be paid by T‑Mobile USA and the guarantors.

If, 30 calendar days following the due date for the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the first year in which Sprint and its subsidiaries have been included in the consolidated financial statements of the Company for at least nine months, (x) the exchange offer registration statement is not on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or (y) a shelf registration statement (if required) is not on file with the SEC or is declared effective but thereafter ceases to be effective or usable (subject to certain exceptions), T‑Mobile USA will be required to pay certain Additional Interest as provided in the Registration Rights Agreement.

Under the terms of the Registration Rights Agreement, T‑Mobile USA and the guarantors have agreed to indemnify certain holders of the Notes against certain liabilities.

The above description of the Registration Rights Agreement is a summary only and is subject to, and qualified entirely by, the Registration Rights Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 4.8 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.

Capitalized terms used herein have the meanings assigned to them in the Indenture referred to below unless otherwise indicated.

 

(1)       INTEREST.

 

Interest (computed on the basis of a 360-day year comprised of twelve 30-day months) shall accrue on the principal amount of this Note from and including October 28, 2020 until maturity at a rate per annum equal to 2.250%.

 

The Issuer promises to pay interest and Additional Interest, if any, semi-annually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, or if any such day is not a Business Day, on the next succeeding Business Day (each, an “Interest Payment Date”). Interest on the Notes will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or, if no interest has been paid, from the date of issuance; provided that if there is no existing Default in the payment of interest, and if this Note is authenticated between a record date referred to on the face hereof and the next succeeding Interest Payment Date, interest shall accrue from such next succeeding Interest Payment Date; provided further that the first Interest Payment Date shall be May 15, 2021. If an Interest Payment Date or the maturity date falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the related payment of principal or interest will be made on the next succeeding Business Day as if made on the date the payment was due, and no interest shall accrue for the intervening period.

 

(2)       METHOD OF PAYMENT.

 

The Issuer will pay interest on the Notes (except defaulted interest) to the Persons who are registered Holders of Notes at the close of business on the May 1 or November 1 next preceding the Interest Payment Date, even if such Notes are canceled after such record date and on or before such Interest Payment Date, except as provided in Section 2.14 of the Base Indenture with respect to defaulted interest. The Notes will be payable as to principal, premium, if any, and interest at the office or agency of the Issuer maintained for such purpose within the City and State of New York, or, at the option of the Issuer, payment of interest may be made by check mailed to the Holders at their addresses set forth in the books and records of the Registrar; provided that payment by wire transfer of immediately available funds will be required with respect to principal of and interest and premium, if any, on, all Global Notes and all other Notes the Holders of which will have provided wire transfer instructions to the Issuer or the Paying Agent. Such payment will be in such money of the United States of America as at the time of payment is legal tender for payment of public and private debts. [The Holder of a Definitive Note is not required to surrender such Definitive Note to the Trustee in order to receive payment of principal at maturity. Such Definitive Note, after payment has been made, shall be cancelled without the requirement of presentation.]3

Prior to August 15, 2031, the Notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at the Issuer’s option, at any time or from time to time, on at least 15 days’ but not more than 60 days’ prior notice to the holders of the Notes, at a redemption price equal to the greater of:

 

●           100% of the principal amount thereof; or

 

●           the sum, as calculated by the Issuer, of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes being redeemed (assuming that such Notes matured on August 15, 2031), exclusive of interest accrued to, but not including, the redemption date, discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at a rate equal to the sum of the applicable Treasury Rate (as defined below) plus 25 basis points (any excess of the amount described in this bullet point over the amount described in the immediately preceding bullet point, the “Make-Whole Premium”).

 

On or after August 15, 2031, the Notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at the Issuer’s option, at any time or from time to time, on at least 15 days’ but not more than 60 days’

 

Exhibit A-8

 

prior notice to the holders of the Notes, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof.

 

We will also pay the accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount being redeemed to, but not including, the redemption date.

 

Comparable Treasury Issue” means the United States Treasury security selected by an Independent Investment Bank as having a constant maturity comparable to the remaining term (“Remaining Life”) of the Notes (assuming that the Notes matured on August 15, 2031) that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of the Notes (assuming that the Notes matured on August 15, 2031).

 

Comparable Treasury Price” means, with respect to any redemption date, (1) the average of the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for such redemption date, after excluding the highest and lowest Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, or (2) if the Independent Investment Bank obtains fewer than four such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of all such quotations.

 

Independent Investment Bank” means one of the Reference Treasury Dealers that the Issuer appoints to act as the Independent Investment Bank from time to time.

 

Reference Treasury Dealer” means (1) each of Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and their respective successors, unless any of them ceases to be a primary U.S. Government securities dealer in New York City (a “Primary Treasury Dealer”), in which case we will substitute another Primary Treasury Dealer and (2) any other Primary Treasury Dealer(s) the Issuer selects.

 

Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations” means, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any redemption date, the average, as determined by the Independent Investment Bank, of the bid and asked prices for the applicable Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the Independent Investment Bank by such Reference Treasury Dealer at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the third business day preceding such redemption date.

 

“Treasury Rate” means, with respect to any redemption date, (i) the yield, calculated as the average of the five most recent daily rates published in the statistical release(s) designated “H.15” or any successor publication which is published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and which establishes yields on actively traded U.S. Treasury securities adjusted to constant maturity under the caption “Treasury Constant Maturities,” for the maturity corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue (if no maturity is within three months before or after August 15, 2031, yields for the two published maturities most closely corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue shall be determined and the Treasury Rate shall be interpolated or extrapolated from such yields on a straight line basis, rounding to the nearest month); or (ii) if the release referred to above (or any successor release) is not published during the week preceding the calculation date or does not contain the yields referred to above, the rate per

 

Exhibit A-9

 

annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, calculated using a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such redemption date. The Treasury Rate will be calculated at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the third business day preceding such redemption date. As used in the immediately preceding sentence and in the definition of “Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations” above, the term “business day” means any day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks in New York City are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to close.

 

The Trustee shall have no responsibility for calculating the redemption price for the Notes.

 

Unless the Issuer defaults in the payment of the redemption price, interest will cease to accrue on the Notes or portions thereof called for redemption on the applicable redemption date. At or before 10:00 a.m. (New York time) on the redemption date, the Issuer will deposit with the Trustee or a paying agent money sufficient to pay the redemption price of and accrued interest on the Notes to be redeemed on such date. If less than all of the Notes are to be redeemed, the Notes to be redeemed shall be selected in accordance with the procedures of DTC.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the requirement to pay any Make-Whole Premium shall not arise in connection with any recovery of amounts due as a result of any breach of any covenant contained in the Indenture or the applicable Notes except where the transaction resulting in such breach was consummated with the intent to breach such covenant.

 

(6)       MANDATORY REDEMPTION.

 

The Issuer is not required to make mandatory redemption or sinking fund payments with respect to the Notes.

 

(7)       NOTICE OF REDEMPTION.

 

Notice of redemption will be sent at least 15 days but not more than 60 days before the redemption date to each Holder whose Notes are to be redeemed, except that redemption notices may be sent or mailed more than 60 days prior to a redemption date if the notice is issued in connection with a defeasance of the Notes or a satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture. Notes in denominations larger than $2,000 may be redeemed in part but only in whole multiples of $1,000, unless all of the Notes held by a Holder are to be redeemed. In connection with any redemption of Notes, any such notice of redemption may, at the Issuer’s discretion, state that such redemption is subject to one or more conditions precedent, including, but not limited to, completion of an equity offering, other offering, issuance of Indebtedness or other corporate transaction or event. In addition, if such notice of redemption is subject to satisfaction of one or more conditions precedent, such notice may state that, in the Issuer’s discretion, the redemption date may be delayed until such time as any or all such conditions shall be satisfied (or waived by the Issuer in its sole discretion), or such redemption may not occur and such notice may be rescinded in the event that any or all such conditions shall not have been satisfied (or waived by the Issuer in its sole discretion) by the redemption date (whether the original redemption date or the redemption date so delayed).

 

Exhibit A-10

 

(8)       REPURCHASE AT THE OPTION OF HOLDER.

 

If there is a Change of Control Triggering Event, the Issuer will be required to make a Change of Control Offer to each Holder to repurchase all or any part (equal to $2,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof) of such Holder’s Notes at a purchase price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the Notes repurchased to, but not including, the date of purchase, subject to the rights of Holders on the relevant record date to receive interest due on the relevant Interest Payment Date for periods prior to such repurchase date pursuant to Section 4.08 of the Base Indenture. Within 30 days following any Change of Control Triggering Event, the Issuer will send a notice to each Holder and the Trustee describing the transaction or transactions and identifying the Rating Event that together constitute the Change of Control Triggering Event, offering to repurchase Notes on the Change of Control Payment Date specified in the notice, which date will be no earlier than 10 days and no later than 60 days from the date such notice is sent and setting forth the procedures governing the Change of Control Offer as required by the Indenture.

 

(9)       REGISTRATION RIGHTS.

 

The Holder of this Note is entitled to the benefits of a Registration Rights Agreement, including with respect to Additional Interest, pursuant to which, subject to the terms and conditions thereof, the Issuer and the Guarantors are obligated to consummate the Registered Exchange Offer, whereby the Exchange Notes, having terms identical in all material respects to the Notes (except that the Exchange Note will not contain terms with respect to transfer restrictions or Additional Interest) will be offered in exchange for surrender of the Notes.

 

(10)       DENOMINATIONS, TRANSFER, EXCHANGE.

 

The Notes are in registered form without coupons in minimum denominations of $2,000 and integral multiples of $1,000.

The Issuer need not exchange or register the transfer or exchange of any Note or portion of a Note selected for redemption, except for the unredeemed portion of any Note being redeemed in part. Also, the Issuer need not exchange or register the transfer of any Notes (i) for a period beginning at the opening of business 15 days immediately preceding the sending of notice of redemption of Notes selected for redemption and ending at the close of business on the day such notice is sent or (ii) during the period between a record date and the corresponding Interest Payment Date.

 

(11)       PERSONS DEEMED OWNERS. The registered Holder of a Note may be treated as its owner for all purposes.

 

(12)       AMENDMENT, SUPPLEMENT AND WAIVER. The Indenture, the Intercreditor Agreement, the Security Documents, the Notes and the Note Guarantees may be amended, supplemented or waived as provided in Article IX of the Base Indenture and in the Intercreditor Agreement and the Security Documents where applicable.

(13)       DEFAULTS AND REMEDIES. If an Event of Default occurs (other than an Event of Default relating to certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization of the Issuer, any of its Significant Subsidiaries or any group of Subsidiaries that, taken together, would constitute a Significant Subsidiary) and is continuing, the Trustee or the Holders of at least 30% in principal amount of the outstanding Notes, in each case, by notice to the Issuer, may declare the principal of, premium, if any, and accrued but unpaid interest, if any, on all the Notes to be due and payable; provided that no such declaration may be made with respect to or as a result of any action taken, and reported publicly or to holders of Notes, more than two years prior to such declaration. If an Event of Default relating to certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization of the Issuer, any of its Significant Subsidiary or any group of Subsidiaries that, taken together, would constitute a Significant Subsidiary occurs, the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on all the Notes shall become immediately due and payable without any declaration or other act on the part of the Trustee or any Holders. Under certain circumstances, the Holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may rescind any such acceleration with respect to the Notes and its consequences. The requirement to pay any Make-Whole Premium shall not arise in connection with any recovery of amounts due as a result of any breach of any covenant contained in the Indenture, this Supplemental Indenture or the applicable Notes except where the transaction resulting in such breach was consummated with the intent to breach such covenant.

 

(14)       TRUSTEE DEALINGS WITH ISSUER. The Trustee, in its individual or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of Notes and may otherwise deal with the Issuer or any Affiliate of the Issuer with the same rights it would have if it were not Trustee.

 

(15)       NO RECOURSE AGAINST OTHERS. No past, present or future director, officer, member, manager, partner, employee, incorporator or stockholder of the Issuer or any Guarantor, as such, will have any liability for any obligations of the Issuer or the Guarantors under the Notes, the Indenture, the Intercreditor Agreement, the Security Documents, the Note Guarantees or for any claim based on, in respect of, or by reason of, such obligations or their creation. Each Holder by accepting a Note waives and releases all such liability. The waiver and release are part of the consideration for the issuance of the Notes.

 

(16)       AUTHENTICATION. This Note will not be valid until authenticated by the manual, facsimile or electronic (including PDF) signature of the Trustee or an authenticating agent.

Interest on the Notes will accrue from the most recent date to which interest has been paid or, if no interest has been paid, from the date of issuance; provided that if there is no existing Default in the payment of interest, and if this Note is authenticated between a record date referred to on the face hereof and the next succeeding Interest Payment Date, interest shall accrue from such next succeeding Interest Payment Date; provided further that the first Interest Payment Date shall be May 15, 2021. If an Interest Payment Date or the maturity date falls on a day that is not a Business Day, the related payment of principal or interest will be made on the next succeeding Business Day as if made on the date the payment was due, and no interest shall accrue for the intervening period.

 

(2)       METHOD OF PAYMENT.

 

The Issuer will pay interest on the Notes (except defaulted interest) to the Persons who are registered Holders of Notes at the close of business on the May 1 or November 1 next preceding the Interest Payment Date, even if such Notes are canceled after such record date and on or before such Interest Payment Date, except as provided in Section 2.14 of the Base Indenture with respect to defaulted interest. The Notes will be payable as to principal, premium, if any, and interest at the office or agency of the Issuer maintained for such purpose within the City and State of New York, or, at the option of the Issuer, payment of interest may be made by check mailed to the Holders at their addresses set forth in the books and records of the Registrar; provided that payment by wire transfer of immediately available funds will be required with respect to principal of and interest and premium, if any, on, all Global Notes and all other Notes the Holders of which will have provided wire transfer instructions to the Issuer or the Paying Agent.

(4)       INDENTURE.

 

The Issuer issued the Notes pursuant to an Indenture dated as of April 9, 2020 (the “Base Indenture”) among the Issuer, the Guarantors and the Trustee, as amended and supplemented with respect to the Notes by the Seventeenth Supplemental Indenture dated as of October 28, 2020 (the “Seventeenth Supplemental Indenture”; the Base Indenture, as amended and supplemented with respect to the Notes by the Seventeenth Supplemental Indenture, the “Indenture”).

 

The terms of the Notes include those stated in the Indenture and those made part of the Indenture by reference to the Trust Indenture Act. The Notes are subject to all such terms, and Holders are referred to the Indenture and to the Trust Indenture Act for a statement of such terms. To the extent any provision of this Note conflicts with the express provisions of the Indenture, the provisions of the Indenture shall govern and be controlling. The Notes are senior secured obligations of the Issuer. The Indenture does not limit the aggregate principal amount of Notes that may be issued thereunder.

 

The Issuer’s obligations under the Notes are unconditionally guaranteed on a senior secured basis, to the extent set forth in the Indenture and the Security Documents, by each of the Secured Guarantors and on a senior unsecured basis by each of the Unsecured Guarantors to the extent set forth in the Indenture.

 

(5)       OPTIONAL REDEMPTION.

 

Prior to May 15, 2060, the Notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at the Issuer’s option, at any time or from time to time, on at least 15 days’ but not more than 60 days’ prior notice to the holders of the Notes, at a redemption price equal to the greater of:

 

●           100% of the principal amount thereof; or

 

●           the sum, as calculated by the Issuer, of the present values of the remaining scheduled payments of principal and interest on the Notes being redeemed (assuming that such Notes matured on May 15, 2060), exclusive of interest accrued to, but not including, the redemption date, discounted to the redemption date on a semi-annual basis (assuming a 360-day year consisting of twelve 30-day months) at a rate equal to the sum of the applicable Treasury Rate (as defined below) plus 35 basis points (any excess of the amount described in this bullet point over the amount described in the immediately preceding bullet point, the “Make-Whole Premium”).

 

On or after May 15, 2060, the Notes will be redeemable, in whole or in part, at the Issuer’s option, at any time or from time to time, on at least 15 days’ but not more than 60 days’

 


Exhibit A-8

 

prior notice to the holders of the Notes, at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount thereof.

 

We will also pay the accrued and unpaid interest on the principal amount being redeemed to, but not including, the redemption date.

 

Comparable Treasury Issue” means the United States Treasury security selected by an Independent Investment Bank as having a constant maturity comparable to the remaining term (“Remaining Life”) of the Notes (assuming that the Notes matured on May 15, 2060) that would be utilized, at the time of selection and in accordance with customary financial practice, in pricing new issues of corporate debt securities of comparable maturity to the remaining term of the Notes (assuming that the Notes matured on May 15, 2060).

 

Comparable Treasury Price” means, with respect to any redemption date, (1) the average of the Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations for such redemption date, after excluding the highest and lowest Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, or (2) if the Independent Investment Bank obtains fewer than four such Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations, the average of all such quotations.

 

Independent Investment Bank” means one of the Reference Treasury Dealers that the Issuer appoints to act as the Independent Investment Bank from time to time.

 

Reference Treasury Dealer” means (1) each of Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC and their respective successors, unless any of them ceases to be a primary U.S. Government securities dealer in New York City (a “Primary Treasury Dealer”), in which case we will substitute another Primary Treasury Dealer and (2) any other Primary Treasury Dealer(s) the Issuer selects.

 

Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations” means, with respect to each Reference Treasury Dealer and any redemption date, the average, as determined by the Independent Investment Bank, of the bid and asked prices for the applicable Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed in each case as a percentage of its principal amount) quoted in writing to the Independent Investment Bank by such Reference Treasury Dealer at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on the third business day preceding such redemption date.

 

“Treasury Rate” means, with respect to any redemption date, (i) the yield, calculated as the average of the five most recent daily rates published in the statistical release(s) designated “H.15” or any successor publication which is published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and which establishes yields on actively traded U.S. Treasury securities adjusted to constant maturity under the caption “Treasury Constant Maturities,” for the maturity corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue (if no maturity is within three months before or after May 15, 2060, yields for the two published maturities most closely corresponding to the Comparable Treasury Issue shall be determined and the Treasury Rate shall be interpolated or extrapolated from such yields on a straight line basis, rounding to the nearest month); or (ii) if the release referred to above (or any successor release) is not published during the week preceding the calculation date or does not contain the yields referred to above, the rate per

 


Exhibit A-9

 

annum equal to the semi-annual equivalent yield to maturity of the Comparable Treasury Issue, calculated using a price for the Comparable Treasury Issue (expressed as a percentage of its principal amount) equal to the Comparable Treasury Price for such redemption date. The Treasury Rate will be calculated at 5:00 p.m. (New York City time) on the third business day preceding such redemption date. As used in the immediately preceding sentence and in the definition of “Reference Treasury Dealer Quotations” above, the term “business day” means any day that is not a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks in New York City are authorized or obligated by law or executive order to close.

 

The Trustee shall have no responsibility for calculating the redemption price for the Notes.

 

Unless the Issuer defaults in the payment of the redemption price, interest will cease to accrue on the Notes or portions thereof called for redemption on the applicable redemption date. At or before 10:00 a.m. (New York time) on the redemption date, the Issuer will deposit with the Trustee or a paying agent money sufficient to pay the redemption price of and accrued interest on the Notes to be redeemed on such date. If less than all of the Notes are to be redeemed, the Notes to be redeemed shall be selected in accordance with the procedures of DTC.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, the requirement to pay any Make-Whole Premium shall not arise in connection with any recovery of amounts due as a result of any breach of any covenant contained in the Indenture or the applicable Notes except where the transaction resulting in such breach was consummated with the intent to breach such covenant.

 

(6)       MANDATORY REDEMPTION.

 

The Issuer is not required to make mandatory redemption or sinking fund payments with respect to the Notes.

 

(7)       NOTICE OF REDEMPTION.

 

Notice of redemption will be sent at least 15 days but not more than 60 days before the redemption date to each Holder whose Notes are to be redeemed, except that redemption notices may be sent or mailed more than 60 days prior to a redemption date if the notice is issued in connection with a defeasance of the Notes or a satisfaction and discharge of the Indenture. Notes in denominations larger than $2,000 may be redeemed in part but only in whole multiples of $1,000, unless all of the Notes held by a Holder are to be redeemed. In connection with any redemption of Notes, any such notice of redemption may, at the Issuer’s discretion, state that such redemption is subject to one or more conditions precedent, including, but not limited to, completion of an equity offering, other offering, issuance of Indebtedness or other corporate transaction or event. In addition, if such notice of redemption is subject to satisfaction of one or more conditions precedent, such notice may state that, in the Issuer’s discretion, the redemption date may be delayed until such time as any or all such conditions shall be satisfied (or waived by the Issuer in its sole discretion), or such redemption may not occur and such notice may be rescinded in the event that any or all such conditions shall not have been satisfied (or waived by the Issuer in its sole discretion) by the redemption date (whether the original redemption date or the redemption date so delayed).

(8)       REPURCHASE AT THE OPTION OF HOLDER.

 

If there is a Change of Control Triggering Event, the Issuer will be required to make a Change of Control Offer to each Holder to repurchase all or any part (equal to $2,000 or an integral multiple of $1,000 in excess thereof) of such Holder’s Notes at a purchase price in cash equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount thereof plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, on the Notes repurchased to, but not including, the date of purchase, subject to the rights of Holders on the relevant record date to receive interest due on the relevant Interest Payment Date for periods prior to such repurchase date pursuant to Section 4.08 of the Base Indenture. Within 30 days following any Change of Control Triggering Event, the Issuer will send a notice to each Holder and the Trustee describing the transaction or transactions and identifying the Rating Event that together constitute the Change of Control Triggering Event, offering to repurchase Notes on the Change of Control Payment Date specified in the notice, which date will be no earlier than 10 days and no later than 60 days from the date such notice is sent and setting forth the procedures governing the Change of Control Offer as required by the Indenture.

The Issuer need not exchange or register the transfer or exchange of any Note or portion of a Note selected for redemption, except for the unredeemed portion of any Note being redeemed in part. Also, the Issuer need not exchange or register the transfer of any Notes (i) for a period beginning at the opening of business 15 days immediately preceding the sending of notice of redemption of Notes selected for redemption and ending at the close of business on the day such notice is sent or (ii) during the period between a record date and the corresponding Interest Payment Date.

If an Event of Default relating to certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization of the Issuer, any of its Significant Subsidiary or any group of Subsidiaries that, taken together, would constitute a Significant Subsidiary occurs, the principal of, premium, if any, and interest on all the Notes shall become immediately due and payable without any declaration or other act on the part of the Trustee or any Holders. Under certain circumstances, the Holders of a majority in principal amount of the outstanding Notes may rescind any such acceleration with respect to the Notes and its consequences. The requirement to pay any Make-Whole Premium shall not arise in connection with any recovery of amounts due as a result of any breach of any covenant contained in the Indenture, this Supplemental Indenture or the applicable Notes except where the transaction resulting in such breach was consummated with the intent to breach such covenant.

 

(14)       TRUSTEE DEALINGS WITH ISSUER. The Trustee, in its individual or any other capacity, may become the owner or pledgee of Notes and may otherwise deal with the Issuer or any Affiliate of the Issuer with the same rights it would have if it were not Trustee.

Each Holder by accepting a Note waives and releases all such liability. The waiver and release are part of the consideration for the issuance of the Notes.

The Issuer and the Guarantors shall commence the Exchange Offer promptly after the Exchange Offer Registration Statement is declared effective by the SEC and use commercially reasonable efforts to complete the Exchange Offer not later than 60 days after such effective date.

 

The Issuer and the Guarantors shall commence the Exchange Offer by mailing or delivering the related Prospectus and other accompanying documents, if any, in compliance with the applicable procedures of the depositary holding the Securities stating, in addition to such other disclosures as are required by applicable law, substantially the following:

 

(i) that the Exchange Offer is being made pursuant to this Agreement and that all Registrable Securities validly tendered and not properly withdrawn will be accepted for exchange;

 

7

 

(ii) the Exchange Offer shall remain available for tenders by the Holders of Registrable Securities for a period of at least 20 Business Days from the date the Exchange Offer is commenced (or longer if required by applicable law including in accordance with the requirements of Regulation 14E of the Exchange Act) (the “Exchange Date”);

 

(iii) that any Registrable Security not tendered by the Exchange Date will remain outstanding and continue to accrue interest but will not retain any rights under this Agreement, except as otherwise expressly specified herein;

 

(iv) that any Holder electing to have a Registrable Security exchanged pursuant to the Exchange Offer will be required to (A) surrender such Registrable Security to the institution and at the address (located in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York) and in the manner specified in the notice, or (B) effect such exchange otherwise in compliance with the applicable procedures of the depositary for such Registrable Security, in each case prior to the close of business on the Exchange Date; and

 

(v) that any Holder will be entitled to withdraw its election, not later than the close of business on the Exchange Date, by (A) delivering to the institution and at the address (located in the Borough of Manhattan, The City of New York) specified in the notice, facsimile transmission or letter setting forth the name of such Holder, the principal amount of Registrable Securities delivered for exchange and a statement that such Holder is withdrawing its election to have such Securities exchanged or (B) effecting such withdrawal in compliance with the applicable procedures of the depositary for the Registrable Securities.

 

As a condition to participating in the Exchange Offer, a Holder will be required to represent to the Issuer and the Guarantors that (i) any Exchange Securities to be received by it will be acquired in the ordinary course of its business, (ii) at the time of the commencement of the Exchange Offer it has no arrangement or understanding with any Person to participate in the distribution (within the meaning of the Securities Act) of the Exchange Securities in violation of the provisions of the Securities Act, (iii) it is not an “affiliate” (within the meaning of Rule 405 under the Securities Act) of the Issuer or any Guarantor, or if it is such an affiliate, it will comply with the registration and prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act to the extent applicable, (iv) if such Holder is a broker-dealer that will receive Exchange Securities for its own account in exchange for Registrable Securities that were acquired as a result of market-making or other trading activities, then such Holder will deliver a Prospectus (or, to the extent permitted by law, make available a Prospectus to purchasers) in connection with any resale of such Exchange Securities, (v) such Holder holds all right, title and interest in and to the Registrable Securities to be exchanged, (vi) such Holder transfers all right, title and interest in the Registrable Securities to the Issuer in exchange for the Exchange Securities free and clear of all liens, encumbrances, or rights or interests of third parties, and (vii) if such Holder is not a broker-dealer, that it is not engaged in, and does not intend to engage in, a public distribution of Exchange Securities.

 

As soon as practicable after the Exchange Date, the Issuer and the Guarantors shall:

 

(i) accept for exchange Registrable Securities or portions thereof validly tendered and not properly withdrawn pursuant to the Exchange Offer; and

 

8

 

(ii) deliver, or cause to be delivered, to the Trustee for cancellation all Registrable Securities or portions thereof so accepted for exchange by the Issuer and issue, and cause the Trustee to promptly authenticate and deliver to each Holder, Exchange Securities equal in principal amount to the principal amount of the Registrable Securities tendered by such Holder.

 

The Issuer and the Guarantors shall use commercially reasonable efforts to complete the Exchange Offer as provided above and shall comply in all material respects with the applicable requirements of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act and other applicable laws and regulations in connection with the Exchange Offer. The Exchange Offer shall not be subject to any conditions, other than (a) that the Exchange Offer does not violate in any material respect any applicable law or applicable interpretations of the Staff and (b) as expressly set forth herein, including the making of the representations and warranties referred to in the second preceding paragraph and compliance with the terms and conditions set forth in the third preceding paragraph.

 

(b)       In the event that (i) the Issuer and the Guarantors determine that the Exchange Offer Registration provided for in Section 2(a) hereof is not available or may not be completed as soon as practicable after the Exchange Date because it would violate any applicable law or applicable interpretations of the Staff or (ii) after the filing of the Exchange Offer Registration Statement with the SEC, upon receipt of a written request (a “Shelf Request”) within 20 Business Days after the consummation of the Exchange Offer (x) from any Initial Purchaser or Holder representing that it holds Registrable Securities but is prohibited by applicable law or SEC policy from participating in the Exchange Offer, (y) from any Initial Purchaser or Holder that participates in the Exchange Offer, which represents that it received Exchange Securities that may be sold with only Securities Act restrictions (for the avoidance of doubt, other than restrictions resulting solely by reason of the status of such Initial Purchaser or Holder as an affiliate of the Issuer or any Guarantor) on transfer or (z) from any Initial Purchaser with respect to Registrable Securities that have, or that are reasonably likely to be determined to have, the status of unsold allotments in the original distribution of the Registrable Securities, the Issuer and the Guarantors shall, subject to Section 2(f), use commercially reasonable efforts to cause to be filed as soon as practicable, but in any event within 60 days, after such determination date or Shelf Request, as the case may be, a Shelf Registration Statement (which, if permitted, may be an amendment to the Exchange Offer Registration Statement) providing for the sale of all the Registrable Securities by the Holders thereof and to have such Shelf Registration Statement declared effective promptly; provided that no Holder will be entitled to have any Registrable Securities included in any Shelf Registration Statement, or entitled to use the prospectus forming a part of such Shelf Registration Statement until such Holder shall have delivered a completed and signed Notice and Questionnaire and provided such other information regarding such Holder to the Issuer as is contemplated by Section 3(b) hereof.

 

In the event that the Issuer and the Guarantors are required to file a Shelf Registration Statement pursuant to clause (i) of the directly preceding paragraph, the filing of an Exchange Offer Registration Statement in compliance with Section 2(a) above shall be deemed to satisfy the requirement to file a Shelf Registration Statement pursuant to the preceding paragraph, provided that in such event the Issuer and the Guarantors shall remain obligated to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause such Registration Statement to become effective. In

 

9

 

the event that the Issuer and the Guarantors are required to file a Shelf Registration Statement pursuant to clause (ii) of the directly preceding paragraph, the Issuer and the Guarantors shall use commercially reasonable efforts to file and have become effective both an Exchange Offer Registration Statement pursuant to Section 2(a) hereof with respect to all Registrable Securities and a Shelf Registration Statement (which may be a combined Registration Statement with the Exchange Offer Registration Statement) with respect to offers and sales of Registrable Securities held by Participating Holders after completion of the Exchange Offer.

 

The Issuer and the Guarantors agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to keep the Shelf Registration Statement continuously effective, subject to Sections 2(f) and 3(d), until the earlier of (x) the date that is 210 calendar days following the due date for Parent’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the first year in which Sprint and its subsidiaries have been included in the consolidated results of Parent for at least nine months, (y) the date that the Securities cease to be Registrable Securities, and (z) the date on which the Securities covered by the Shelf Request have been transferred by all Holders (in the case of any Shelf Registration Statement required to be filed pursuant to Section 2(b)(i)) or all of the Participating Holder(s) making such Shelf Request (in the case of any Shelf Registration Statement required to be filed pursuant to Section 2(b)(ii)) (the period from the effective date thereof to such date, the “Shelf Effectiveness Period”). The Issuer and the Guarantors further agree, subject to Section 2(f), to use commercially reasonable efforts to supplement or amend the Shelf Registration Statement and the related Prospectus if required by the rules, regulations or instructions applicable to the registration form used by the Issuer and the Guarantors for such Shelf Registration Statement or by the Securities Act or by any other rules and regulations thereunder or if reasonably requested in writing pursuant to the notice provision hereof by a Participating Holder of Registrable Securities with respect to information relating to such Holder prior to the end of the Shelf Effectiveness Period, and to use commercially reasonable efforts to cause any such amendment to become effective, if required, and such Shelf Registration Statement and Prospectus to become usable as soon as thereafter practicable. The Issuer and the Guarantors agree to furnish to the Participating Holders copies of any such supplement or amendment promptly after its being used or filed with the SEC.

 

(c)       The Issuer and the Guarantors shall pay all Registration Expenses in connection with any registration pursuant to Section 2(a) or Section 2(b) hereof. Each Holder shall pay all underwriting discounts and commissions, brokerage commissions, its own attorney fees (except as such fees may be covered by clause (vii) of the definition of Registration Expenses) and transfer taxes, if any, relating to the sale or disposition of such Holder’s Registrable Securities pursuant to the Shelf Registration Statement.

 

(d)       An Exchange Offer Registration Statement pursuant to Section 2(a) hereof will not be deemed to have become effective unless it has been declared effective by the SEC or otherwise becomes effective pursuant to SEC rules. A Shelf Registration Statement pursuant to Section 2(b) hereof will not be deemed to have become effective unless it has been declared effective by the SEC or is automatically effective upon filing with the SEC as provided by Rule 462 under the Securities Act or otherwise becomes effective pursuant to SEC rules.

 

If a Registration Default occurs, the interest rate on the applicable Registrable Securities will be increased by (i) 0.25% per annum for the first 90-day period beginning on and including

 

10

 

the day such Registration Default occurred and (ii) an additional 0.25% per annum with respect to the subsequent 90-day period in which such Registration Default continues, in each case until and excluding the date such Registration Default ends, up to a maximum increase for all Registration Defaults in the aggregate of 0.50% per annum (collectively, the “Additional Interest”). A Registration Default ends, and Additional Interest on account thereof shall cease to accrue, when the Securities cease to be Registrable Securities or, if earlier, (1) in the case of a Registration Default under clause (i) of the definition thereof, when the Exchange Offer is completed, (2) in the case of a Registration Default under clause (ii) or clause (iii) of the definition thereof, when the Shelf Registration Statement becomes effective or (3) in the case of a Registration Default under clause (iv) of the definition thereof, when the Shelf Registration Statement again becomes effective or the Prospectus again becomes usable. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) neither the Issuer nor any Guarantor shall be required to pay Additional Interest in excess of the amount described above because more than one Registration Default has occurred and is pending, (ii) a Holder of Registrable Securities who is not entitled to the benefits of a Shelf Registration Statement shall not be entitled to Additional Interest with respect to a Registration Default that pertains to such Shelf Registration Statement, (iii) a Holder of Registrable Securities who does not make a Shelf Request shall not be entitled to Additional Interest in respect of a Registration Default pertaining to a Shelf Registration Statement related to such Shelf Request, and (iv) a Holder who cannot take advantage of the Exchange Offer shall not be entitled to Additional Interest in respect of a Registration Default relating to the Exchange Offer.

 

(e)        Any amounts paid pursuant to Section 2(d) above shall be computed ratably on the basis of twelve 30-day months and shall be paid in cash semi-annually in arrears, with the first semi-annual payment due on the first date an interest payment is made pursuant to the Indenture following the date of such Registration Default.

 

(f)         Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, upon the occurrence or existence of a possible acquisition or business combination or other transaction, business development or event involving the Issuer or the Guarantors that may require disclosure in a Registration Statement, if the Issuer determines in the exercise of its reasonable judgment (and not for the purpose of avoidance of its obligations hereunder) that such disclosure is not in the best interests of the Issuer and its stockholders, the Issuer and the Guarantors may delay the filing or the effectiveness, or may suspend the effectiveness, of the Exchange Offer Registration Statement or the Shelf Registration Statement and shall not be required to maintain the effectiveness thereof or amend or supplement the Exchange Offer Registration Statement or the Shelf Registration Statement for one or more periods not to exceed an aggregate of 120 days during any 12-month period. Any such delay period will not defer the obligations of the Issuer to pay Additional Interest with respect to a Registration Default.

 

(g)        The Issuer and the Guarantors covenant that they (including their agents and representatives) will not prepare, make, use, authorize, approve or refer to any Free Writing Prospectus.

(vi)        use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the withdrawal of any order suspending the effectiveness of a Registration Statement or, in the case of a Shelf Registration, the resolution of any objection of the SEC pursuant to Rule 401(g)(2), including by filing an amendment to such Shelf Registration Statement on the proper form, as promptly as practicable, and provide prompt notice to each Participating Holder of the withdrawal of any such order or such resolution;

(xvi)       in the case of a Shelf Registration, enter into such customary agreements and take all such other actions in connection therewith (to the extent requested by the Participating Holders of a majority in principal amount of the Registrable Securities covered by the Shelf Registration Statement) in order to expedite or facilitate the disposition of such Registrable Securities including, but not limited to, an Underwritten Offering and in such connection, (1) to the extent possible, make such representations and warranties to the Participating Holders and any Underwriters of such Registrable Securities with respect to the business of the Issuer and its subsidiaries and the Registration Statement, Prospectus and documents incorporated by reference or deemed incorporated by reference, if any, in each case, in form, substance and scope as are customarily made by issuers similar to the Issuer to underwriters in underwritten offerings and confirm the same if and when requested, (2) obtain customary opinions of counsel to the Issuer and the Guarantors (which opinions, in form, scope and substance, shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Participating Holders and such Underwriters and their respective counsel) addressed to each requesting Participating Holder and Underwriter of Registrable Securities, covering the matters customarily covered in opinions requested in underwritten offerings, (3) use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain “comfort” letters from the independent registered public accountants of the Issuer and the Guarantors (and, if necessary, any other independent registered public accountant of any subsidiary of the Issuer or any Guarantor, or of any business acquired by the Issuer or any Guarantor for which financial statements and financial data are or are required to be included in the Registration Statement) addressed to each Participating Holder (to the extent permitted by applicable professional standards) and Underwriter of Registrable Securities, such letters to be in customary form and covering matters of the type customarily covered in “comfort” letters in connection with underwritten offerings, including but not limited to financial information contained in any preliminary prospectus or Prospectus and (4) deliver such documents and certificates as may be reasonably requested by the Participating Holders of a majority in principal amount of the Registrable Securities being sold or the Underwriters, and which are customarily delivered in underwritten offerings, to evidence the continued validity of the representations and warranties of the Issuer and the Guarantors made pursuant to clause (1) above and to evidence compliance with any customary conditions contained in an underwriting agreement; it being agreed that the representations and warranties, opinions of counsel and comfort letters delivered in connection with the initial offering of the Securities are customary; and

 

(xvii)      so long as any Registrable Securities remain outstanding, cause each Additional Guarantor upon the creation or acquisition by the Issuer of such Additional Guarantor, to execute a counterpart to this Agreement in the form attached hereto as Annex A and to deliver such counterpart to the Initial Purchasers no later than five Business Days following such Additional Guarantor executing its guarantee under the Indenture.

 

16

 

(b)        In the case of a Shelf Registration Statement, the Issuer may require each Holder of Registrable Securities to furnish to the Issuer such information regarding such Holder and the proposed disposition by such Holder of such Registrable Securities as the Issuer and the Guarantors may from time to time reasonably request in writing; provided that if a Holder fails to provide the requested information within 10 Business Days after receiving such request, the Issuer or any Guarantor may exclude such Holder’s Registrable Securities from such Shelf Registration Statement; provided further that any failure to provide such information shall not require the Issuer or the Guarantors to pay Additional Interest.

 

(c)        Each Participating Holder agrees that, upon receipt of any notice from the Issuer of the happening of any event of the kind described in Section 3(a)(v)(2), Section 3(a)(v)(3), Section 3(a)(v)(4), Section 3(a)(v)(5), Section 3(a)(v)(6) or Section 3(a)(v)(7) hereof, such Person will forthwith discontinue disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to the Shelf Registration Statement until such Person’s receipt of the copies of the supplemented or amended Prospectus contemplated by Section 3(a)(ix) hereof and, if so directed by the Issuer and the Guarantors, such Person will deliver to the Issuer and the Guarantors all copies in its possession, other than permanent file copies then in such Person’s possession, of the Prospectus covering such Registrable Securities that is current at the time of receipt of such notice.

 

(d)       If the Issuer and the Guarantors shall give any notice to suspend the disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to a Registration Statement pursuant to Section 2(f), Section 3(a)(v)(2), Section 3(a)(v)(3), Section 3(a)(v)(4), Section 3(a)(v)(5), Section 3(a)(v)(6) or Section 3(a)(v)(7) that results in suspension of disposition of Registrable Securities pursuant to Section 3(c), the Issuer and the Guarantors shall not be required to maintain the effectiveness thereof during the period of such suspension, and shall extend the period during which such Registration Statement shall be maintained effective pursuant to this Agreement on a day-by-day basis by the number of days during the period from and including the date of the giving of such notice to and including the date when the Holders of such Registrable Securities shall have received copies of the supplemented or amended Prospectus necessary to resume such dispositions.

 

(e)       The Participating Holders who desire to do so may sell such Registrable Securities in an Underwritten Offering. In any such Underwritten Offering, the investment bank or investment banks and manager or managers (each an “Underwriter”) that will administer the offering will be selected by the Holders of a majority in principal amount of the Registrable Securities included in such offering, subject to the approval of the Issuer and the Guarantors, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. All fees, costs and expenses of the Underwriters, except for Registration Expenses, shall be borne solely by the Holders of Registrable Securities.

 

4.       Participation of Broker-Dealers in Exchange Offer. (a) The Staff has taken the position that any broker-dealer that receives Exchange Securities for its own account in the Exchange Offer in exchange for Securities that were acquired by such broker-dealer as a result of market-making or other trading activities (a “Participating Broker-Dealer”) may be deemed to be an “underwriter” within the meaning of the Securities Act and must deliver a prospectus meeting the requirements of the Securities Act in connection with any resale of such Exchange Securities.

 

17

 

The parties hereto understand that it is the Staff’s position that if the Prospectus contained in the Exchange Offer Registration Statement includes a plan of distribution containing a statement to the above effect and the means by which Participating Broker-Dealers may resell the Exchange Securities, without naming the Participating Broker-Dealers or specifying the amount of Exchange Securities owned by them, such Prospectus may be delivered by Participating Broker-Dealers (or, to the extent permitted by law, made available to purchasers) to satisfy their prospectus delivery obligation under the Securities Act in connection with resales of Exchange Securities for their own accounts, so long as the Prospectus otherwise meets the requirements of the Securities Act.

 

(b)        In light of the above, and notwithstanding the other provisions of this Agreement, the Issuer and the Guarantors agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to amend or supplement the Prospectus contained in the Exchange Offer Registration Statement for a period of up to 90 days after the Exchange Date (as such period may be extended pursuant to Section 3(d) hereof), in order to expedite or facilitate the disposition of any Exchange Securities by Participating Broker-Dealers consistent with the positions of the Staff recited in Section 4(a) above. The Issuer and the Guarantors further agree that, subject to Section 3(c), Participating Broker-Dealers shall be authorized to deliver such Prospectus (or, to the extent permitted by law, make available) during such period in connection with the resales contemplated by this Section 4.

 

5.          Indemnification and Contribution. (a) The Issuer and each Guarantor, jointly and severally, agree to indemnify and hold harmless each Initial Purchaser and each Holder, their respective affiliates, directors and officers and each Person, if any, who controls any Initial Purchaser or any Holder within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act, from and against any and all losses, claims, damages and liabilities (including, without limitation, reasonable and actual out-of-pocket legal fees and other actual out-of-pocket expenses reasonably incurred in connection with any suit, action or proceeding or any claim asserted, as such fees and expenses are incurred), joint or several, that arise out of, or are based upon, (1) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Registration Statement or any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary in order to make the statements therein not misleading, or (2) any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of a material fact contained in any Prospectus, any Free Writing Prospectus used in violation of this Agreement or any “issuer information” (“Issuer Information”) filed or required to be filed pursuant to Rule 433(d) under the Securities Act, or any omission or alleged omission to state therein a material fact necessary in order to make the statements therein, in the light of the circumstances under which they were made, not misleading, in each case except insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities arise out of, or are based upon, any untrue statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or omission made in reliance upon and in conformity with any information relating to any Initial Purchaser or information relating to any Holder furnished to the Issuer in writing by the Representatives, any Initial Purchaser or any Holder, respectively, expressly for use therein. In connection with any Underwritten Offering permitted by Section 3, the Issuer and the Guarantors, jointly and severally, will also indemnify the Underwriters, if any, their respective affiliates and each Person who controls such Persons (within the meaning of the Securities Act and the Exchange Act) to the same extent as provided above with respect to the indemnification

 

18

 

of the Holders, if requested in connection with any Registration Statement, any Prospectus, any Free Writing Prospectus used in violation of this Agreement or any Issuer Information.

 

(b)        Each Holder agrees, severally and not jointly, to indemnify and hold harmless the Issuer, the Guarantors, the Initial Purchasers and the other selling Holders, the directors and officers of the Issuer and the Guarantors and each Person, if any, who controls the Issuer, the Guarantors, any Initial Purchaser and any other selling Holder within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act to the same extent as the indemnity set forth in paragraph (a) above, but only with respect to any losses, claims, damages or liabilities that arise out of, or are based upon, any untrue statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or omission made in reliance upon and in conformity with any information relating to such Holder furnished to the Issuer in writing by such Holder expressly for use in any Registration Statement and any Prospectus. Any underwriting agreement entered into in connection with any Underwritten Offering permitted by Section 3, shall include provisions whereby each Underwriter agrees, severally and not jointly, to indemnify and hold harmless the Issuer, the Guarantors, the Initial Purchasers and the selling Holders, the directors and officers of the Issuer and the Guarantors and each Person, if any, who controls the Issuer, the Guarantors, any Initial Purchaser and any selling Holder within the meaning of Section 15 of the Securities Act or Section 20 of the Exchange Act to the same extent as the indemnity set forth in paragraph (a) above, but only with respect to any losses, claims, damages or liabilities that arise out of, or are based upon, any untrue statement or omission or alleged untrue statement or omission made in reliance upon and in conformity with any information relating to such Underwriter furnished to the Issuer in writing by such Underwriter expressly for use in any Registration Statement and any Prospectus.

 

(c)         If any suit, action, proceeding (including any governmental or regulatory investigation), claim or demand shall be brought or asserted against any Person in respect of which indemnification may be sought pursuant to either paragraph (a) or (b) above, such Person (the “Indemnified Person”) shall promptly notify the Person against whom such indemnification may be sought (the “Indemnifying Person”) in writing; provided that the failure to notify the Indemnifying Person shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have under paragraph (a) or (b) above except to the extent that it has been materially prejudiced (through the forfeiture of substantive rights or defenses) by such failure; and provided, further, that the failure to notify the Indemnifying Person shall not relieve it from any liability that it may have to an Indemnified Person otherwise than under paragraph (a) or (b) above. If any such proceeding shall be brought or asserted against an Indemnified Person and it shall have notified the Indemnifying Person thereof, the Indemnifying Person shall assume and control the defense of such action and shall retain counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Person to represent the Indemnified Person and any others entitled to indemnification pursuant to this Section 5 that the Indemnifying Person may designate in such proceeding and shall pay the fees and expenses of such proceeding and shall pay the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel related to such proceeding, as incurred (except that in the case of any action in respect of which indemnity may be sought pursuant to both Sections 5(a) and 5(b), a Holder shall not be required to assume the defense of such action pursuant to this Section 5(c), but may employ separate counsel and participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel, except as provided below, shall be at the expense of the Holder). In any such proceeding, any Indemnified Person shall have the right to retain its own counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of

 

19

 

such Indemnified Person unless (i) the Indemnifying Person and the Indemnified Person shall have mutually agreed to the contrary; (ii) the Indemnifying Person has failed within a reasonable time to retain counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Person; (iii) the Indemnified Person shall have reasonably concluded upon advice of counsel that there may be legal defenses available to it that are different from or in addition to those available to the Indemnifying Person; or (iv) the named parties in any such proceeding (including any impleaded parties) include both the Indemnifying Person and the Indemnified Person and representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between them, in which case for clauses (i)-(iv), the Indemnifying Person’s obligations shall be only for reasonable and actual outside counsel fees and expenses. It is understood and agreed that the Indemnifying Person shall not, in connection with any proceeding or separate but substantially similar or related proceedings in the same jurisdiction, be liable for the fees and expenses of more than one separate firm (in addition to any local counsel) for all Indemnified Persons, and that all such fees and expenses shall be reimbursed as they are incurred. Any such separate firm (x) for any Initial Purchaser, its affiliates, directors and officers and any control Persons of such Initial Purchaser shall be designated in writing by the Representatives, (y) for any other Holder, its directors and officers and any control Persons of such Holder shall be designated in writing by the Majority Holders (other than any Initial Purchaser) and (z) in all other cases shall be designated in writing by the Issuer. The Indemnifying Person shall not be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent, but if settled with such consent or if there be a final judgment, the Indemnifying Person agrees to indemnify each Indemnified Person from and against any loss or liability by reason of such settlement or judgment. No Indemnifying Person shall, without the written consent of the Indemnified Person, effect any settlement of any pending or threatened proceeding in respect of which any Indemnified Person is or could have been a party and indemnification could have been sought hereunder by such Indemnified Person, unless such settlement (A) includes an unconditional release of such Indemnified Person, in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnified Person, from all liability on claims that are the subject matter of such proceeding and (B) does not include any statement as to or any admission of fault, culpability or a failure to act by or on behalf of any Indemnified Person.

 

(d)         If the indemnification provided for in paragraphs (a) and (b) above is unavailable to an Indemnified Person or insufficient in respect of any losses, claims, damages or liabilities referred to therein, then each Indemnifying Person under such paragraph, in lieu of indemnifying such Indemnified Person thereunder, shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Person as a result of such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (i) in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect the relative benefits received by the Issuer and the Guarantors from the offering of the Securities and the Exchange Securities, on the one hand, and by the Holders from receiving Securities or Exchange Securities registered under the Securities Act, on the other hand, or (ii) if the allocation provided by clause (i) is not permitted by applicable law, in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only the relative benefits referred to in clause (i) but also the relative fault of the Issuer and the Guarantors on the one hand and the Holders on the other in connection with the statements or omissions that resulted in such losses, claims, damages or liabilities, as well as any other relevant equitable considerations. The relative fault of the Issuer and the Guarantors on the one hand and the Holders on the other shall be determined by reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a material fact relates to

 

20

 

information supplied by the Issuer and the Guarantors or by the Holders and the parties’ relative intent, knowledge, access to information and opportunity to correct or prevent such statement or omission.

 

(e)         The Issuer, the Guarantors and the Holders agree that it would not be just and equitable if contribution pursuant to this Section 5 were determined by pro rata allocation (even if the Holders were treated as one entity for such purpose) or by any other method of allocation that does not take account of the equitable considerations referred to in paragraph (d) above. The amount paid or payable by an Indemnified Person as a result of the losses, claims, damages and liabilities referred to in paragraph (d) above shall be deemed to include, subject to the limitations set forth above, any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by such Indemnified Person in connection with any such action or claim. Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section 5, in no event shall a Holder be required to contribute any amount in excess of the amount by which the total price at which the Securities or Exchange Securities sold by such Holder exceeds the amount of any damages that such Holder has otherwise been required to pay by reason of such untrue or alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission. No Person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any Person who was not guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. The Holders’ obligations to contribute pursuant to this Section 5 are several and not joint.

 

(f)         The remedies provided for in this Section 5 are not exclusive and shall not limit any rights or remedies that may otherwise be available to any Indemnified Person at law or in equity.

 

(g)        The indemnity and contribution provisions contained in this Section 5 shall remain operative and in full force and effect regardless of (i) any termination of this Agreement, (ii) any investigation made by or on behalf of the Initial Purchasers or any Holder or any Person controlling any Initial Purchaser or any Holder, or by or on behalf of the Issuer or the Guarantors or the officers or directors of or any Person controlling the Issuer or the Guarantors, (iii) acceptance of any of the Exchange Securities and (iv) any sale of Registrable Securities pursuant to a Shelf Registration Statement.

 

6.          General.

 

(a)        No Inconsistent Agreements. The Issuer and the Guarantors represent, warrant and agree that (i) the rights granted to the Holders hereunder do not in any way conflict with and are not inconsistent with the rights granted to the holders of any other outstanding securities issued or guaranteed by the Issuer or any Guarantor under any other agreement in effect as of the date hereof and (ii) neither the Issuer nor any Guarantor has entered into, or on or after the date of this Agreement will enter into, any agreement that is inconsistent with the rights granted to the Holders of Registrable Securities in this Agreement or otherwise conflicts with the provisions hereof.

 

(b)       Amendments and Waivers. The provisions of this Agreement, including the provisions of this sentence, may not be amended, modified or supplemented, and waivers or consents to departures from the provisions hereof may not be given unless the Issuer and the

 

21

 

Guarantors have obtained the written consent of Holders of at least a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Registrable Securities affected by such amendment, modification, supplement, waiver or consent (excluding Registrable Securities held by the Issuer, the Guarantors and their affiliates); provided that no amendment, modification, supplement, waiver or consent to any departure from the provisions of Section 5 hereof shall be effective as against any Holder of Registrable Securities unless consented to in writing by such Holder. Any amendments, modifications, supplements, waivers or consents pursuant to this Section 6(b) shall be by a writing executed by each of the parties hereto. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a waiver or consent to depart from the provisions hereof that relates exclusively to the rights of Holders whose Registrable Securities are being tendered pursuant to the Exchange Offer, and that does not affect directly or indirectly the rights of other Holders whose Registrable Securities are not being tendered pursuant to such Exchange Offer, may be given by the Holders of a majority of the outstanding principal amount of Registrable Securities being tendered pursuant to such Exchange Offer.

 

(c)       Notices. All notices and other communications provided for or permitted hereunder shall be made in writing by hand-delivery, first-class mail, telecopier/facsimile, or any courier guaranteeing overnight delivery (i) if to a Holder, at the most current address given by such Holder to the Issuer by means of a notice given in accordance with the provisions of this Section 6(c), which address initially is, with respect to the Initial Purchasers, the address set forth in the Purchase Agreement; (ii) if to the Issuer and the Guarantors, initially at the Issuer’s address set forth in the Purchase Agreement and thereafter at such other address, notice of which is given in accordance with the provisions of this Section 6(c); and (iii) to such other persons at their respective addresses as provided in the Purchase Agreement and thereafter at such other address, notice of which is given in accordance with the provisions of this Section 6(c). All such notices and communications shall be deemed to have been duly given: at the time delivered by hand, if personally delivered; five Business Days after being deposited in the mail, postage prepaid, if mailed; when receipt is acknowledged, if telecopied/faxed; and on the next Business Day if timely delivered to an air courier guaranteeing overnight delivery. Copies of all such notices, demands or other communications shall be concurrently delivered by the Person giving the same to the Trustee, at the address specified in the Indenture.

 

(d)         Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the successors, assigns and transferees of each of the parties, including, without limitation and without the need for an express assignment, subsequent Holders; provided that nothing herein shall be deemed to permit any assignment, transfer or other disposition of Registrable Securities in violation of the terms of the Purchase Agreement or the Indenture. If any transferee of any Holder shall acquire Registrable Securities in any manner, whether by operation of law or otherwise, such Registrable Securities shall be held subject to all the terms of this Agreement, and by taking and holding such Registrable Securities such Person shall be conclusively deemed to have agreed to be bound by and to perform all of the terms and provisions of this Agreement and such Person shall be entitled to receive the benefits hereof. The Initial Purchasers (solely in their capacity as Initial Purchasers) shall have no liability or obligation to the Issuer or the Guarantors with respect to any failure by a Holder to comply with, or any breach by any Holder of, any of the obligations of such Holder under this Agreement.

 

22

 

(e)        Third Party Beneficiaries. Each Holder shall be a third party beneficiary to the agreements made hereunder between the Issuer and the Guarantors, on the one hand, and the Initial Purchasers, on the other hand, and shall have the right to enforce such agreements directly to the extent it deems such enforcement necessary or advisable to protect its rights or the rights of other Holders hereunder, in each case subject to Section 6(j) hereof.

 

(f)         Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by the parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when so executed shall be deemed to be an original and all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement.

 

(g)        Headings. The headings in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only, are not a part of this Agreement and shall not limit or otherwise affect the meaning hereof.

 

(h)        Governing Law. This Agreement, and any claims, controversy or dispute arising under or related to this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to the conflict of laws rules thereof that would require the application of any other law.

 

(i)        Entire Agreement; Severability. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all oral statements and prior writings with respect thereto. If any term, provision, covenant or restriction contained in this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void or unenforceable or against public policy, the remainder of the terms, provisions, covenants and restrictions contained herein shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated.

 

(j)        Exclusive Remedy. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement (including without limitation Sections 2, 3 and 4 hereof) or in the Indenture to the contrary, the payment of Additional Interest shall be the only remedy available to the Initial Purchasers and the Holders of Securities for any Registration Default or other failure to comply with this Agreement. Each party hereto acknowledges and agrees that the harm caused by a Registration Default would be impossible or very difficult to accurately estimate as of the date hereof, and that the Additional Interest is a reasonable estimate of the anticipated or actual harm that might arise from a Registration Default.
