(i)        On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, (A) the L/C Issuer (1) shall, from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Closing Date until the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, issue Letters of Credit in Dollars for the account of the Borrower in support of the obligations of the Borrower or any other Loan Party, and amend or renew Letters of Credit previously issued by it, in accordance with Section 2.02(b) below, and (2) shall honor drafts under the Letters of Credit; and (B) the Revolving Lenders severally agree to participate in Letters of Credit issued for the account of the Borrower in support of the obligations of the Borrower or any other Loan Party; provided that the L/C Issuer shall not be obligated to make any L/C Credit Extension with respect to any Letter of Credit, and no Revolving Lender shall be obligated to participate in, any Letter of Credit if as of the date of such L/C Credit Extension, (x) the Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans, Swing Line Loans and L/C Obligations would exceed the Total Revolving Loan Commitment at such time, (y) the aggregate Effective Amount of the Revolving Loans of any Revolving Lender, plus such Revolving Lender’s Total Lender Risk Participation would exceed such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment, or (z) the Effective Amount of the L/C Obligations would exceed the Letter of Credit Sublimit. Each Letter of Credit shall be in a form reasonably acceptable to the L/C Issuer. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Borrower’s ability to obtain Letters of Credit shall be fully revolving, and accordingly the Borrower may, during the foregoing period, obtain Letters of Credit to replace Letters of Credit that have expired or that have been drawn upon and reimbursed. Nothing herein limits the Borrower’s obligations under Section 2.06(c)(i). All Existing Letters of Credit shall be deemed to have been issued pursuant hereto, and from and after the Closing Date shall be subject to and governed by the terms and conditions hereof.
(ii)        The L/C Issuer shall be under no obligation to issue any Letter of Credit if:
(A)        any order, judgment or decree of any Governmental Authority or arbitrator shall by its terms purport to enjoin or restrain the L/C Issuer from issuing such Letter of Credit, or any Requirement of Law applicable to the L/C Issuer or any request or directive (whether or not having the force of law) from any Governmental Authority with jurisdiction over the L/C Issuer shall prohibit, or request that the L/C Issuer refrain from, the issuance of letters of credit generally or such Letter of Credit in particular or shall impose upon the L/C Issuer with respect to such Letter of Credit any restriction, reserve or capital requirement (for which the L/C Issuer is not otherwise compensated hereunder) not in effect on the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date, or shall impose upon the L/C Issuer any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense which was not applicable on the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date and which the L/C Issuer in good faith deems material to it;
(B)        subject to Section 2.02(b)(iii), (1) in the case of any Standby Letter of Credit, the expiry date of such requested Letter of Credit would occur more than twelve months after the date of issuance or last renewal or (2) in the case of any Commercial Letter of Credit, the expiry date of such requested Letter of Credit would occur more than 180 days after

49




the date of issuance or last renewal, in either case unless the Required Revolving Lenders have approved such expiry date;
(C)        the expiry date of such requested Letter of Credit would occur after the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, unless all the Revolving Lenders have approved such expiry date;
(D)        the issuance of such Letter of Credit would violate one or more policies of the L/C Issuer or the terms and conditions of the applicable Letter of Credit Application;
(E)        such Letter of Credit is in a face amount less than $25,000, in the case of a Commercial Letter of Credit or $100,000 (or such lesser amount agreed upon by the L/C Issuer) in the case of any other type of Letter of Credit or denominated in a currency other than Dollars;
(F)        such Letter of Credit is in violation of the ISP, the UCP or other applicable Governmental Rule; or
(G)        any Lender is at such time a Defaulting Lender hereunder, unless such Lender’s Fronting Exposure has been reallocated to other Lenders in accordance with Section 2.16(a) or the L/C Issuer has entered into arrangements satisfactory to the L/C Issuer with the Borrower or such Defaulting Lender to eliminate the L/C Issuer’s Fronting Exposure.
(iii)        The L/C Issuer shall be under no obligation to amend any Letter of Credit if (A) the L/C Issuer would have no obligation under the terms hereof to issue such Letter of Credit as amended or (B) the beneficiary does not accept the proposed amendment to such Letter of Credit.
(b)        Procedures for Issuance and Amendment of Letters of Credit; Evergreen Letters of Credit.
(i)        Each Letter of Credit shall be issued or amended, as the case may be, upon the request of the Borrower delivered to the L/C Issuer (with a copy to the Administrative Agent) in the form of a Letter of Credit Application, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower. Such Letter of Credit Application must be received by the L/C Issuer and the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m., at least four (4) Business Days (or such later date and time as the L/C Issuer may agree in a particular instance in its sole discretion) prior to the proposed issuance date or date of amendment, as the case may be. In the case of a request for an initial issuance of a Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit Application shall specify in form and detail reasonably satisfactory to the L/C Issuer: (A) the proposed issuance date of the requested Letter of Credit (which date shall be a Business Day); (B) the amount thereof; (C) the expiry date thereof; (D) the name and address of the beneficiary thereof; (E) the documents to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing thereunder; (F) the full text of any certificate to be presented by such beneficiary in case of any drawing

50




thereunder; (G) the account party thereunder, and (H) such other matters as the L/C Issuer may reasonably require. In the case of a request for an amendment of any outstanding Letter of Credit, such Letter of Credit Application shall specify in form and detail reasonably satisfactory to the L/C Issuer (A) the Letter of Credit to be amended; (B) the proposed date of amendment thereof (which date shall be a Business Day); (C) the nature of the proposed amendment; and (D) such other matters as the L/C Issuer may reasonably require.
(ii)        Promptly after receipt of any Letter of Credit Application, the L/C Issuer will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has received a copy of such Letter of Credit Application from the Borrower and, if not, the L/C Issuer will provide the Administrative Agent with a copy thereof. Upon receipt by the L/C Issuer of confirmation from the Administrative Agent that the requested issuance or amendment is permitted in accordance with the terms hereof, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the L/C Issuer shall, on the requested date, issue a Letter of Credit for the account of the Borrower or enter into the applicable amendment, as the case may be, in each case in accordance with the L/C Issuer’s usual and customary business practices. Immediately upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, each Revolving Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the L/C Issuer a participation in such Letter of Credit in an amount equal to the product of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share times the amount of such Letter of Credit; provided, however, that the amount of such Lender’s participation shall be adjusted in the manner set forth in Section 2.16(a)(iv). The Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Revolving Lender upon the issuance of a Letter of Credit.
(iii)        If the Borrower so requests in any applicable Letter of Credit Application, the L/C Issuer may, in its sole and absolute discretion, agree to issue a Letter of Credit that has automatic renewal provisions (each, an “Evergreen Letter of Credit”); provided that any such Evergreen Letter of Credit must permit the L/C Issuer to prevent any such renewal at least once in each twelve-month period (commencing with the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit) by giving prior notice to the beneficiary thereof not later than a day (the “Nonrenewal Notice Date”) in each such twelve-month period to be agreed upon at the time such Letter of Credit is issued. Unless otherwise directed by the L/C Issuer, the Borrower shall not be required to make a specific request to the L/C Issuer for any such renewal. Once an Evergreen Letter of Credit has been issued, the Revolving Lenders shall be deemed to have authorized (but may not require) the L/C Issuer to permit the renewal of such Letter of Credit at any time to a date not later than the Letter of Credit Expiration Date; provided, however, that the L/C Issuer shall not permit any such renewal if (A) the L/C Issuer would have no obligation at such time to issue such Letter of Credit in its renewed form under the terms hereof, or (B) it has received notice (which may be by telephone or in writing) on or before the Business Day immediately preceding the Nonrenewal Notice Date (1) from the Administrative Agent that the Required Lenders have elected not to permit such renewal or (2) from the Administrative Agent, any Lender or the Borrower that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 3.02 is not then satisfied. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the L/C Issuer shall have no obligation to permit the renewal of any Evergreen Letter of Credit at any time.

51




(iv)        Promptly after its delivery of any Letter of Credit or any amendment to a Letter of Credit to an advising bank with respect thereto or to the beneficiary thereof, the L/C Issuer will also deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent a true and complete copy of such Letter of Credit or amendment.
(c)        Drawings and Reimbursements; Funding of Participations.
(i)        Upon any drawing under any Letter of Credit, the L/C Issuer shall notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of the amount to be paid by the L/C Issuer as a result of such drawing and the date on which payment is to be made by the L/C Issuer to the beneficiary of such Letter of Credit in respect of such drawing; provided, however, that in the case of Commercial Letters of Credit, subsequent notification by routine methods shall be deemed sufficient notice. Not later than 11:00 a.m., on the date of any payment by the L/C Issuer under a Letter of Credit (each such date of payment, an “Honor Date”), the Borrower shall reimburse the L/C Issuer through the Administrative Agent in an amount equal to the amount of such drawing, which may be effected through the debiting of one or more deposit accounts maintained with the Administrative Agent. If the Borrower fails to so reimburse the L/C Issuer by such time, the Administrative Agent shall promptly notify each Revolving Lender of the Honor Date, the amount of the unreimbursed drawing (the “Unreimbursed Amount”), and the amount of such Revolving Lender’s L/C Risk Participation with respect thereto. In such event, the Borrower shall be deemed to have requested a Revolving Loan Borrowing of Base Rate Loans to be disbursed on the Business Day following the Honor Date in an amount equal to the Unreimbursed Amount, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified in Section 2.01 for the principal amount of Base Rate Loans, but subject to the amount of the unutilized portion of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment and the conditions set forth in Section 3.02 (other than the delivery of a Notice of Loan Borrowing for Revolving Loans). Any notice given by the L/C Issuer or the Administrative Agent pursuant to this Section 2.02(c)(i) may be given by telephone if immediately confirmed in writing; provided, that the lack of such an immediate confirmation shall not affect the conclusiveness or binding effect of such notice.
(ii)        Each Revolving Lender (including the Revolving Lender acting as L/C Issuer) shall upon any notice pursuant to Section 2.02(c)(i) make funds available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the L/C Issuer at the Administrative Agent’s office in an amount equal to its L/C Risk Participation with respect to the Unreimbursed Amount not later than 1:00 p.m. on the Business Day specified in such notice by the Administrative Agent, whereupon, subject to the provisions of Section 2.02(c)(iii), each Revolving Lender that so makes funds available shall be deemed to have made a Base Rate Loan to the Borrower in such amount. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the L/C Issuer.
(iii)        With respect to any Unreimbursed Amount that is not fully refinanced by a Revolving Loan Borrowing because the conditions set forth in Section 3.02 cannot be satisfied or for any other reason, the Borrower shall be deemed to have incurred from the L/C Issuer an L/C Borrowing in the amount of the Unreimbursed Amount that is not so refinanced, which L/C Borrowing shall be due and payable on demand (together with interest) and shall bear interest at the rate applicable to Revolving Loans upon the occurrence and during the continuance

52




of an Event of Default. In such event, each Revolving Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 2.02(c)(ii) shall be deemed payment in respect of its participation in such L/C Borrowing and shall constitute an L/C Advance from such Revolving Lender in satisfaction of its participation obligation under this Section 2.02.
(iv)        Until each Revolving Lender funds its Revolving Loan or L/C Advance pursuant to this Section 2.02(c) to reimburse the L/C Issuer for any amount drawn under any Letter of Credit, interest in respect of such Revolving Lender’s L/C Risk Participation with respect thereto shall be solely for the account of the L/C Issuer. For the avoidance of doubt, interest shall accrue beginning on the Honor Date for any such draw under a Letter of Credit.
(v)        Each Revolving Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Loans or L/C Advances to reimburse the L/C Issuer for, or participate in, amounts drawn under Letters of Credit, as contemplated by this Section 2.02(c), shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (A) any setoff, offset, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Revolving Lender may have against the L/C Issuer, the Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever; (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or Event of Default, or (C) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing. Any such reimbursement shall not relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the Borrower to reimburse the L/C Issuer for the amount of any payment made by the L/C Issuer under any Letter of Credit, together with interest as provided herein.
(vi)        If any Revolving Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the L/C Issuer any amount required to be paid by such Revolving Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.02(c) by the time specified in Section 2.02(c)(ii), the L/C Issuer shall be entitled to recover from such Revolving Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the L/C Issuer at a rate per annum equal to the Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. A certificate of the L/C Issuer submitted to any Revolving Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this Section 2.02(c)(vi) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(d)        Repayment of Participations.
(i)        At any time after the L/C Issuer has made a payment under any Letter of Credit and has received from any Revolving Lender such Revolving Lender’s L/C Advance in respect of such payment in accordance with Section 2.02(c), if the Administrative Agent receives for the account of the L/C Issuer any payment related to such Letter of Credit (whether directly from the Borrower or otherwise, including proceeds of Cash Collateral applied thereto by the Administrative Agent), or any payment of interest thereon, the Administrative Agent will distribute to such Revolving Lender a portion of such payment allocable to such Revolving Lender’s L/C Risk Participation with respect to such Letter of Credit in the same funds as those received by the Administrative Agent.

53




(ii)        If any payment received by the Administrative Agent for the account of the L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 2.02(c)(i) is required to be returned, each Revolving Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent for the account of the L/C Issuer a portion of such payment allocable to such Revolving Lender’s L/C Risk Participation with respect to such Letter of Credit on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned by such Revolving Lender, at a rate per annum equal to the daily Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect.
(e)        Obligations Absolute. The obligation of the Borrower to reimburse the L/C Issuer for each drawing under each Letter of Credit, and to repay each L/C Borrowing and each drawing under a Letter of Credit that is refinanced by a Borrowing of Revolving Loans, shall be absolute, unconditional and irrevocable, and shall be paid strictly in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents under all circumstances, including the following:
(i)        any lack of validity or enforceability of such Letter of Credit, this Agreement, or any other agreement or instrument relating thereto;
(ii)        any change in the time, manner or place of payment of, or in any other term of, all or any of the obligations of the Borrower in respect of any Letter of Credit or any other amendment or waiver of, or any consent to departure from, all or any of the Credit Documents;
(iii)         the existence of any claim, counterclaim, setoff, offset, defense or other right that the Borrower or any other Loan Party may have at any time against any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit (or any Person for whom any such beneficiary or any such transferee may be acting), the L/C Issuer or any other Person, whether in connection with this Agreement, the transactions contemplated hereby or by such Letter of Credit or any agreement or instrument relating thereto, or any unrelated transaction;
(iv)        any draft, demand, certificate or other document presented under such Letter of Credit proving to be forged, fraudulent, invalid or insufficient in any respect or any statement therein being untrue or inaccurate in any respect; or any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document required in order to make a drawing under such Letter of Credit;
(v)        any payment by the L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit against presentation of a draft or certificate that does not strictly comply with the terms of such Letter of Credit; or any payment made by the L/C Issuer under such Letter of Credit to any Person purporting to be a trustee in bankruptcy, debtor-in-possession, assignee for the benefit of creditors, liquidator, receiver or other representative of or successor to any beneficiary or any transferee of such Letter of Credit, including any arising in connection with any proceeding under any Debtor Relief Law;
(vi)    the existence, character, quality, quantity, condition, packing, value or delivery of any Property purported to be represented by documents presented in connection

54




with any Letter of Credit or any difference between any such Property and the character, quality, quantity, condition, or value of such Property as described in such documents;
(vii)        the time, place, manner, order or contents of shipments or deliveries of Property as described in documents presented in connection with any Letter of Credit or the existence, nature and extent of any insurance relative thereto;
(viii)        the solvency or financial responsibility of any party issuing any documents in connection with a Letter of Credit;
(ix)        any failure or delay in notice of shipments or arrival of any Property;
(x)        any error in the transmission of any message relating to a Letter of Credit not caused by the L/C Issuer, or any delay or interruption in any such message;
(xi)        any error, neglect or default of any correspondent of the L/C Issuer in connection with a Letter of Credit;
(xii)        any consequence arising from acts of God, war, insurrection, civil unrest, disturbances, labor disputes, emergency conditions or other causes beyond the control of the L/C Issuer;
(xiii)        the form, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any contract or document referred to in any document submitted to the L/C Issuer in connection with a Letter of Credit; and
(xiv)        any other circumstance or happening whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing, including any other circumstance that might otherwise constitute a defense available to, or a discharge of, the Borrower.
The Borrower shall promptly examine a copy of each Letter of Credit and each amendment thereto that is delivered to it and, in the event of any claim of noncompliance with the Borrower’s instructions or other irregularity, the Borrower will promptly notify the L/C Issuer. The Borrower shall be conclusively deemed to have waived any such claim against the L/C Issuer and its correspondents unless such notice is given as aforesaid.
(f)        Role of L/C Issuer. Each of the Borrower and the Lenders agrees that, in paying any drawing under a Letter of Credit, the L/C Issuer shall not have any responsibility to obtain any document (other than any sight draft, certificates and documents expressly required by the Letter of Credit) or to ascertain or inquire as to the validity or accuracy of any such document or the authority of the Person executing or delivering any such document. Neither the Administrative Agent nor the L/C Issuer nor any of their respective affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents or advisors nor any of the correspondents, participants or assignees of the L/C Issuer shall be liable to any Lender for (i) any action taken or omitted in connection herewith at the request or with the approval of such Lender or the Required Lenders; (ii) any action taken or omitted in the absence

55




of gross negligence or willful misconduct; or (iii) the due execution, effectiveness, validity or enforceability of any document or instrument related to any Letter of Credit or Letter of Credit Application. The Borrower hereby assumes all risks of the acts or omissions of any beneficiary or transferee with respect to its use of any Letter of Credit; provided, however, that this assumption is not intended to, and shall not, preclude the Borrower from pursuing such rights and remedies as it may have against the beneficiary or transferee at law or under any other agreement. Neither the Administrative Agent nor the L/C Issuer nor any of their respective affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents or advisors nor any of the correspondents, participants or assignees of the L/C Issuer shall be liable or responsible for any of the matters described in Section 2.02(e); provided, however, that anything in such clauses to the contrary notwithstanding, the Borrower may have a claim against the L/C Issuer, and the L/C Issuer may be liable to the Borrower, to the extent, but only to the extent, of any direct, as opposed to consequential or exemplary, damages suffered by the Borrower which are determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have arisen from the L/C Issuer’s willful misconduct or gross negligence or the L/C Issuer’s willful failure to pay under any Letter of Credit after the presentation to it by the beneficiary of a sight draft and certificate(s) strictly complying with the terms and conditions of a Letter of Credit. In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, the L/C Issuer may accept documents that appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, without responsibility for further investigation, regardless of any notice or information to the contrary, and the L/C Issuer shall not be responsible for the validity or sufficiency of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or proceeds thereof, in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason.
(g)        Cash Collateral. Upon the request of the Administrative Agent, (A) if the L/C Issuer has honored any full or partial drawing request under any Letter of Credit and such drawing has resulted in an L/C Borrowing or (B) if, as of the Letter of Credit Expiration Date, any Letter of Credit may for any reason remain outstanding and partially or wholly undrawn, the Borrower shall immediately Cash Collateralize the Obligations in an amount equal to 105% of the then Effective Amount of the L/C Obligations. The Borrower hereby grants the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the L/C Issuer and the Lenders, a Lien on all such cash and deposit account balances described in the definition of “Cash Collateralize” as security for the Obligations. The Lien held by the Administrative Agent in such cash collateral to secure the Obligations shall be released upon the satisfaction of each of the following conditions: (1) no Letters of Credit shall be outstanding, (2) all L/C Obligations shall have been repaid in full and (3) no Default shall have occurred and be continuing. Cash Collateral shall be maintained in blocked, non-interest bearing deposit accounts at Wells Fargo and may be invested in Cash Equivalents reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent. Such accounts must be subject to control agreements pursuant to which the Administrative Agent has “control,” as such term is used in the Uniform Commercial Code, sufficient to perfect on a first priority basis a security interest in such cash collateral. Upon the drawing of any for which funds are on deposit as Cash Collateral, such funds shall be applied, to the extent permitted under applicable Governmental Rules, to reimburse the L/C Issuer.
(h)        Applicability of ISP and UCP. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by the L/C Issuer and the Borrower when a Letter of Credit is issued, (i) the rules of the “International

56




Standby Practices 1998” published by the Institute of International Banking Law & Practice (or such later version thereof as may be in effect at the time of issuance) (the “ISP”) shall apply to each Standby Letter of Credit, and (ii) the rules of the Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits, as most recently published by the International Chamber of Commerce at the time of issuance (the “UCP”), shall apply to each Commercial Letter of Credit.
(i)        Letter of Credit Fees. The Borrower shall pay, to the Administrative Agent for the account of each Revolving Lender in accordance with its L/C Risk Participation in each Letter of Credit, a Letter of Credit fee for each such Letter of Credit for the period from the date of issuance of such Letter of Credit until the expiry thereof, at a per annum rate equal to the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Loans (plus two percent (2.00%) during such time that the Default Rate is in effect with respect to the Obligations pursuant to Section 2.07(c)) applicable from time to time during such period multiplied by the actual daily maximum amount available to be drawn under such Letter of Credit; provided, however, that any fees payable for the account of a Defaulting Lender with respect to any Letter of Credit as to which such Defaulting Lender has not provided Cash Collateral satisfactory to the L/C Issuer pursuant to Section 2.16(c) shall be payable, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable Governmental Rules, to the other Revolving Lenders in accordance with the upward adjustments of their respective participations in such Letter of Credit pursuant to Section 2.16(a)(iv), with the balance of such fee, if any, payable to the L/C Issuer for its own account; provided, however, that if the Borrower has provided Cash Collateral satisfactory to the L/C Issuer in respect of such Defaulting Lender’s obligations in respect of such Letter of Credit, the balance of such fee, if any, shall be payable to the Borrower. Such fee for each Letter of Credit shall be due and payable quarterly in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter, commencing with the first such day to occur after the issuance of such Letter of Credit and on the Letter of Credit Expiration Date. Each such fee, when due, shall be fully earned and when paid, shall be non-refundable. If there is any change in the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Loans during any fiscal quarter, the Applicable Margin used for the calculation of the Letter of Credit fee shall be the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Loans on each day during such quarter.
(j)         Documentary and Processing Charges Payable to L/C Issuer. The Borrower shall pay directly to the L/C Issuer for its own account the customary presentation, transfer, amendment, modification, extension, renewal, draw, negotiation and other processing fees, and other stand costs and charges, of the L/C Issuer relating to Letters of Credit as from time to time in effect; provided that the fees described in this Section 2.02(j) shall not include any fronting fee, issuing fee or other similar fee. Such fees and charges are due and payable on demand, fully earned when due and are nonrefundable.
(k)        Conflict with Letter of Credit Application. In the event of any conflict between the terms hereof and the terms of any Letter of Credit Application, the terms hereof shall control.
2.03.        Swing Line.
(a)        The Swing Line. On the terms and subject to the conditions set forth herein, the Swing Line Lender shall make loans (each such loan, a “Swing Line Loan”) in Dollars to the Borrower from time to time on any Business Day during the period from the Closing Date

57




up to but not including the Revolving Loan Maturity Date in an aggregate amount not to exceed at any time outstanding the amount of the Swing Line Sublimit, notwithstanding the fact that such Swing Line Loans, when aggregated with the Effective Amount of Revolving Loans of the Swing Line Lender in its capacity as a Revolving Lender of Revolving Loans, may exceed the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment; provided, however, that after giving effect to any Swing Line Loan, (i) the aggregate Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans, Swing Line Loans and L/C Obligations shall not exceed the Total Revolving Loan Commitment at such time, and (ii) the aggregate Effective Amount of the Revolving Loans of any Revolving Lender (other than the Swing Line Lender), plus such Revolving Lender’s Total Lender Risk Participation shall not exceed such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment, and provided, further, that the Swing Line Lender shall not make any Swing Line Loan to refinance an outstanding Swing Line Loan. Within the foregoing limits, and subject to the other terms and conditions hereof, the Borrower may borrow under this Section 2.03, prepay under Section 2.06, and reborrow under this Section 2.03. Each Swing Line Loan shall be a Base Rate Loan. Immediately upon the making of a Swing Line Loan, each Revolving Lender shall be deemed to, and hereby irrevocably and unconditionally agrees to, purchase from the Swing Line Lender a risk participation in such Swing Line Loan in an amount equal to the product of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share times the amount of such Swing Line Loan. Furthermore, if there at any time exists a Defaulting Lender, unless such Lender’s Fronting Exposure has been reallocated to other Lenders in accordance with Section 2.16(a), before making any Swing Line Loans, the Swing Line Lender may condition the provision of such Swing Line Loans on its entering into arrangements satisfactory to the Swing Line Lender with the Borrower or such Defaulting Lender to eliminate the Swing Line Lender’s Fronting Exposure.
(b)        Borrowing Procedures. Each Swing Line Borrowing shall be requested pursuant to the Borrower’s irrevocable notice to the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent, which may be given by telephone. Each such notice must be received by the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 11:00 a.m. on the requested borrowing date, and shall specify (i) the amount to be borrowed, which amount shall be a minimum amount of $100,000 or an integral multiple of $25,000 in excess thereof, and (ii) the requested borrowing date, which shall be a Business Day. Each such telephonic notice must be confirmed promptly by the delivery to the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent of a written Notice of Swing Line Borrowing, appropriately completed and signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower, which notice may be delivered by facsimile. Promptly after receipt by the Swing Line Lender of any telephonic Notice of Swing Line Borrowing, the Swing Line Lender will confirm with the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) that the Administrative Agent has also received such Notice of Swing Line Borrowing and, if not, the Swing Line Lender will notify the Administrative Agent (by telephone or in writing) of the contents thereof. Unless the Swing Line Lender has received notice (by telephone or in writing) from the Administrative Agent (including at the request of any Revolving Lender) prior to 1:00 p.m. on the date of the proposed Swing Line Borrowing (A) directing the Swing Line Lender not to make such Swing Line Loan as a result of the limitations set forth in the first proviso to the first sentence of Section 2.03(a), or (B) that one or more of the applicable conditions specified in Section 3.02 is not then satisfied, then, subject to the terms and conditions hereof, the Swing Line Lender will, not later than 4:00 p.m., on the borrowing date specified in such Notice of Swing Line Borrowing, make the amount of its Swing

58




Line Loan available to the Borrower at its office by crediting the account of the Borrower on the books of the Swing Line Lender in immediately available funds.
(c)        Refinancing of Swing Line Loans.
(i)        The Swing Line Lender at any time in its sole and absolute discretion may request, on behalf of the Borrower (which hereby irrevocably requests the Swing Line Lender to act on its behalf), that each Revolving Lender make a Base Rate Loan in an amount equal to the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Swing Line Risk Participation with respect to the Swing Line Loans then outstanding. Such request shall be made in accordance with the requirements of Section 2.01, without regard to the minimum and multiples specified therein for the principal amount of Base Rate Loans, but subject to the unutilized portion of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment and the conditions set forth in Section 3.02. The Swing Line Lender shall furnish the Borrower with a copy of the applicable Notice of Loan Borrowing for Revolving Loans promptly after delivering such notice to the Administrative Agent. Each Revolving Lender shall make an amount equal to its Swing Line Risk Participation in the amount specified in such Notice of Loan Borrowing for Revolving Loans available to the Administrative Agent in immediately available funds for the account of the Swing Line Lender at the Administrative Agent’s office not later than 1:00 p.m., on the day specified in such Notice of Loan Borrowing for Revolving Loans, whereupon, subject to Section 2.03(c)(ii), each Revolving Lender that so makes funds available shall be deemed to have made a Base Rate Loan to the Borrower in such amount. The Administrative Agent shall remit the funds so received to the Swing Line Lender.
(ii)        If for any reason any Revolving Loan Borrowing cannot be requested in accordance with Section 2.03(c)(i) or any Swing Line Loan cannot be refinanced by such a Revolving Loan Borrowing, the Notice of Loan Borrowing for Revolving Loans submitted by the Swing Line Lender shall be deemed to be a request by the Swing Line Lender that each of the Revolving Lenders fund the amount of its Swing Line Risk Participation in the relevant Swing Line Loan and each Revolving Lender’s payment to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Line Lender pursuant to Section 2.03(c)(i) shall be deemed payment in respect of such Swing Line Risk Participation.
(iii)        If any Revolving Lender fails to make available to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Swing Line Lender any amount required to be paid by such Revolving Lender pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 2.03(c) by the time specified in Section 2.03(c)(i), the Swing Line Lender shall be entitled to recover from such Revolving Lender (acting through the Administrative Agent), on demand, such amount with interest thereon for the period from the date such payment is required to the date on which such payment is immediately available to the Swing Line Lender at a rate per annum equal to the daily Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. A certificate of the Swing Line Lender submitted to any Revolving Lender (through the Administrative Agent) with respect to any amounts owing under this Section 2.03(c)(iii) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
(iv)        Each Revolving Lender’s obligation to make Revolving Loans or to purchase and fund Swing Line Risk Participations in Swing Line Loans pursuant to this Section 2.03(c) shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any

59




circumstance, including (A) any setoff, offset, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Revolving Lender may have against the Swing Line Lender, the Borrower or any other Person for any reason whatsoever, (B) the occurrence or continuance of a Default or Event of Default, or (C) any other occurrence, event or condition, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing. Any such purchase of participations shall not relieve or otherwise impair the obligation of the Borrower to repay Swing Line Loans, together with interest as provided herein.
(d)        Repayment of Participations.
(i)        At any time after any Revolving Lender has purchased and funded a Swing Line Risk Participation in a Swing Line Loan, if the Swing Line Lender receives any payment on account of such Swing Line Loan, the Swing Line Lender will distribute to such Revolving Lender an amount equal to such Revolving Lender’s Swing Line Risk Participation with respect thereto (appropriately adjusted, in the case of interest payments, to reflect the period of time during which such Revolving Lender’s Swing Line Risk Participation was outstanding and funded) in the same funds as those received by the Swing Line Lender.
(ii)        If any payment received by the Swing Line Lender in respect of principal or interest on any Swing Line Loan is required to be returned by the Swing Line Lender, each Revolving Lender shall pay to the Swing Line Lender the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Swing Line Risk Participation with respect thereto on demand of the Administrative Agent, plus interest thereon from the date of such demand to the date such amount is returned, at a rate per annum equal to the daily Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. The Administrative Agent will make such demand upon the request of the Swing Line Lender.
(e)        Interest for Account of Swing Line Lender. Subject to Section 2.07(c), each Swing Line Loan shall bear interest on the outstanding principal amount thereof from the applicable borrowing date at a rate per annum equal to the Base Rate plus the Applicable Margin for Base Rate Loans. The Swing Line Lender shall be responsible for invoicing the Borrower for interest on the Swing Line Loans. Until each Revolving Lender funds its Base Rate Loan or Swing Line Risk Participation pursuant to this Section 2.03 to refinance such Revolving Lender’s Swing Line Risk Participation of any Swing Line Loan, interest in respect of such Swing Line Risk Participation shall be solely for the account of the Swing Line Lender.
(f)        Payments Directly to Swing Line Lender. The Borrower shall make all payments of principal and interest in respect of the Swing Line Loans directly to the Swing Line Lender.
2.04.        Amount Limitations, Commitment Reductions, Etc.
(a)        Optional Reduction or Cancellation of Commitments. The Borrower may, upon three (3) Business Days written notice to the Administrative Agent (each a “Reduction Notice”), permanently reduce the Total Revolving Loan Commitment by the amount of $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof or cancel the Total Revolving Loan Commitment in its entirety; provided, however, that:

60




(i)        The Borrower may not reduce the Total Revolving Loan Commitment prior to the Revolving Loan Maturity Date, if, after giving effect to such reduction, the Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans, L/C Obligations and Swing Line Loans then outstanding would exceed the Total Revolving Loan Commitment; and
(ii)        The Borrower may not cancel the Total Revolving Loan Commitment prior to the Revolving Loan Maturity Date, if, after giving effect to such cancellation, any Revolving Loan, L/C Obligation or Swing Line Loan would then remain outstanding.
Any Reduction Notice shall be irrevocable; provided that any Reduction Notice may state that such notice is conditioned upon the effectiveness of other credit facilities, in which case such notice may be revoked or the date set forth therein may be extended by the Borrower (by written notice to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the specified effective date previously provided in the applicable Reduction Notice) if such condition is not satisfied.
(b)        Mandatory and Scheduled Reduction of Commitments.
(i)        The Total Revolving Loan Commitment shall be automatically and permanently reduced by an amount equal to the maximum amount that would be required to be applied as a mandatory prepayment of the Swing Line Loans and Revolving Loans (and, if applicable, any required Cash Collateralization of the Obligations pursuant to Section 2.06(c)(iii)-(vi) or Section 2.06(d) as if the Effective Amount of the Swing Line Loans, Revolving Loans and L/C Obligations was then equal to the amount of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment (but without regard to the actual usage of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment), such reduction to be effective on the date of the required prepayment; provided that on the first date that the Total Revolving Loan Commitment would be reduced to less than $10,000,000, the Total Revolving Loan Commitment shall not be reduced pursuant to this Section 2.04(b)(i) from and after such date to less than (x) $10,000,000, plus (y) the aggregate outstanding amount of Letters of Credit existing on such date, unless the Total Revolving Loan Commitment has been reduced to $10,000,000 or less prior to such date, in which case the amount under this clause (y) shall be zero, provided further that after such date the Total Revolving Loan Commitment shall be further reduced by the amount by which the aggregate outstanding amount in clause (y) is reduced from and after such date until such aggregate outstanding amount is zero (whether by termination, cancellation, expiration or a draw under the applicable Letter of Credit(s) or otherwise).
(ii)        The Total Revolving Loan Commitment shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero on the Revolving Loan Maturity Date.
(iii)         The Total Closing Date Term Loan Commitment shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero at the close of business on the Closing Date.
(iv)        The Incremental Term Loan Commitments with respect to any Incremental Term Loan Borrowing shall be automatically and permanently reduced to zero at the close of business on the Incremental Effective Date.

61




(c)        Effect of Revolving Loan Commitment Adjustments. From the effective date of any reduction or increase of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment, the Commitment Fees payable pursuant to Section 2.05(b) shall be computed on the basis of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment as so reduced or increased. Once reduced or cancelled, the Total Revolving Loan Commitment may not be increased or reinstated without the prior written consent of all Lenders (except as permitted under Section 2.17). Any reduction of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to Section 2.04(a) or Section 2.04(b) shall be applied ratably to reduce each Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment in accordance with Section 2.10(a)(i).
2.05.        Fees.
(a)        Fee Letters. The Borrower shall pay to the applicable parties under each of the Fee Letters, for their own account, the fees and other compensation in the amounts and at the times set forth in such Fee Letters.
(b)        Commitment Fees. The Borrower shall pay to the Administrative Agent, for the ratable benefit of the Revolving Lenders (other than any Defaulting Lender with respect to the period during which it is a Defaulting Lender) as provided in Sections 2.10(a)(v), commitment fees (collectively, the “Commitment Fees”) equal to the Commitment Fee Percentage of the daily average Unused Revolving Commitment, for the period beginning on the date of this Agreement and ending on the Revolving Loan Maturity Date. The Borrower shall pay the Commitment Fees in arrears on the last Business Day of each calendar quarter and on the Revolving Loan Maturity Date (or if the Total Revolving Loan Commitment is cancelled on a date prior to the Revolving Loan Maturity Date, on such prior date).
2.06.        Prepayments.
(a)        Terms of All Prepayments. Upon the prepayment of any Loan (whether such prepayment is an optional prepayment under Section 2.06(b), a mandatory prepayment required by Section 2.06(c) or a mandatory prepayment required by any other provision of this Agreement or the other Credit Documents, including a prepayment upon acceleration), the Borrower shall pay (i) if a LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion is being prepaid under Section 2.06(b) or Section 2.06(c), to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lender that made such LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion all accrued interest to the date of such prepayment on the amount prepaid, (ii) if a prepayment is made upon acceleration, to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Lender that made such Loan all accrued interest and fees to the date of such prepayment on the amount prepaid and (iii) to such Lender if such prepayment is the prepayment of a LIBOR Loan or of a LIBOR Portion on a day other than the last day of an Interest Period for such LIBOR Loan or such LIBOR Portion, all amounts payable to such Lender pursuant to Section 2.13. Any prepayment shall be without prejudice to the Borrower’s obligations under any Rate Contract, which shall remain in full force and effect subject to the terms of such Rate Contract (including provisions that may require a reduction, modification or early termination of a swap transaction, in whole or in part, in the event of such prepayment, and may require the Borrower to pay any fees or other amounts for such reduction, modification or early termination), and no such fees or amounts shall be deemed a penalty hereunder or otherwise. Any prepayment shall be without prejudice to the Borrower’s obligations under any Rate Contract, which shall remain in full force and effect subject

62




to the terms of such Rate Contract (including provisions that may require a reduction, modification or early termination of a swap transaction, in whole or in part, in the event of such prepayment, and may require the Borrower to pay any fees or other amounts for such reduction, modification or early termination), and no such fees or amounts shall be deemed a penalty hereunder or otherwise.
(b)        Optional Prepayments.
(i)        At its option, the Borrower may, upon notice from the Borrower to the Swing Line Lender (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), at any time or from time to time, voluntarily prepay Swing Line Loans in whole or in part without premium or penalty; provided, that (A) such notice must be received by the Swing Line Lender and the Administrative Agent not later than 10:00 am on the Business Day prior to the date of the prepayment, and (B) any such prepayment shall be in a minimum principal amount of $100,000 or an integral multiple of $25,000 in excess thereof. Each such notice shall specify the date and specify a minimum amount of such prepayment. If such notice is given by the Borrower, the Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein.
(ii)        At any time there are no Swing Line Loans outstanding, at its option, the Borrower may, without premium or penalty but subject to Section 2.13 in the case of LIBOR Loans, upon notice from the Borrower to the Administrative Agent no later than 10:00 a.m., in the case of Base Rate Loans, one Business Day prior to the date of the prepayment and, in the case of LIBOR Loans, three Business Days prior to the date of the prepayment, at any time or from time to time, voluntarily prepay the Revolving Loans in any Revolving Loan Borrowing and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon in part, in a minimum principal amount of $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof, or in whole; provided that if such prepayment is on any day other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Loans, the Borrower shall be subject to the payments required by Section 2.13. If such notice is given by the Borrower, the Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein.
(iii)        At its option, the Borrower may, without premium or penalty but subject to Section 2.13 in the case of LIBOR Portions, upon notice from the Borrower to the Administrative Agent no later than 10:00 a.m., in the case of Base Rate Portions, one Business Day prior to the date of the prepayment and, in the case of LIBOR Portions, three Business Days prior to the date of the prepayment, at any time or from time to time, voluntarily prepay any Portion of a Term Loan Borrowing and all accrued but unpaid interest thereon in part, in a minimum principal amount of $1,000,000 or an integral multiple of $500,000 in excess thereof, or in whole; provided that if such prepayment is on any day other than on the last day of the Interest Period applicable to such LIBOR Portion, the Borrower shall be subject to the payments required by Section 2.13. If such notice is given by the Borrower, the Borrower shall make such prepayment and the payment amount specified in such notice shall be due and payable on the date specified therein. Any optional prepayment of the Term Loans shall be applied as directed by the Borrower (or, in the absence of direction from the Borrower, on a pro rata basis among the remaining scheduled Term Loan amortization payments).

63

(c)        Mandatory Prepayments. The Borrower shall prepay (or Cash Collateralize, as applicable) the Obligations as follows:
(i)        If, at any time, the Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans, Swing Line Loans and L/C Obligations then outstanding exceeds the Total Revolving Loan Commitment at such time, the Borrower shall immediately (A) prepay the Swing Line Loans to the extent Swing Line Loans in a sufficient amount are then outstanding, (B) then prepay the Revolving Loans to the extent Revolving Loans in a sufficient amount are then outstanding and (C) otherwise, if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Cash Collateralize the Obligations in an amount equal to 105% of the then Effective Amount of the L/C Obligations, in an aggregate principal amount equal to such excess.
(ii)        The Borrower shall repay each Swing Line Loan on the earlier to occur of (A) the second Swing Line Settlement Date occurring after such Swing Line Loan is made and (B) the Revolving Loan Maturity Date.
(iii)        If, at any time after the Closing Date, any Loan Party sells or otherwise disposes of any assets (other than (x) sales made in the ordinary course of business and (y) other sales permitted under Section 5.02(c) (excluding Section 5.02(c)(v)(I) with respect to the asset sales only and Section 5.02(c)(xiii) thereof)) in any single transaction or series of related transactions and the Net Proceeds from such sale or disposition exceed $2,500,000, the Borrower shall, not later than thirty (30) days after the completion of each such sale or other disposition, prepay (or Cash Collateralize, as applicable) the outstanding Loans and other Obligations in the manner set forth in Section 2.06(d), in each case, in an aggregate principal amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the Net Proceeds from any such sale or disposition. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower shall not be required to make a prepayment pursuant to this Section 2.06(c)(iii) with respect to any sale or other disposition (a “Relevant Sale”) if the Borrower advises the Administrative Agent in writing within thirty (30) days after the completion of each such Relevant Sale that the applicable Loan Party intends to reinvest all or any portion of such Net Proceeds in productive assets used in the business of the Loan Parties to the extent the reinvestment in such productive assets occurs within twelve (12) months after the date of such Relevant Sale, or, if the applicable Loan Party enters into a binding commitment during such twelve (12) month period, within 180 days after the expiration of such twelve (12) month period. If, at any time after the occurrence of a Relevant Sale and prior to the acquisition of the related replacement assets, the periods provided in the preceding sentence shall elapse or an Event of Default described in Section 6.01(a), (f) or (g) shall occur, then the Borrower shall immediately prepay (or Cash Collateralize, as applicable), the outstanding Loans and other Obligations in the amount and in the manner described in the first sentence of this Section 2.06(c)(iii).
(iv)        If, at any time after the Closing Date, any Loan Party issues or incurs any Indebtedness for borrowed money, including Indebtedness evidenced by notes, bonds, debentures or other similar instruments but excluding Permitted Indebtedness, the Borrower shall, immediately after such issuance or incurrence, prepay (or Cash Collateralize, as

applicable) the outstanding Loans and other Obligations in the manner set forth in Section 2.06(d), in each case, in an aggregate principal amount equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the Net Proceeds of such Indebtedness.
(v)        If, at any time after the Closing Date, any Loan Party issues or sells any Equity Securities or receives any equity capital contribution from any other Person (other than through the issuance of (x) Equity Securities by any Loan Party to another Loan Party, (y) the contribution of capital by any Loan Party to another Loan Party or (z) any Equity Interest of any Person (A) pursuant to any employee stock or stock option compensation plan, (B) to the management of the target of a Permitted Acquisition by way of “roll-over” equity or pursuant to new subscription by such management or (C) the proceeds of such issuance are used to pay the purchase price of a pending Permitted Acquisition; provided that if (a) such Net Proceeds are not used to pay the purchase price of such Permitted Acquisition and (b) such Net Proceeds are not used to pay the purchase price of one or more other Permitted Acquisitions or used to make Investments permitted by this Agreement, in each case, within one (1) year after such Net Proceeds arise, such Net Proceeds shall be used to make prepayments subject to this Section 2.06(c)(v) without giving effect to this parenthetical) and receives aggregate Net Proceeds from all such issuances and sales of Equity Securities and such equity capital contributions in excess of $35,000,000, the Borrower shall, within (5) Business Days receipt of such Net Proceeds, prepay (or Cash Collateralize, as applicable) the outstanding Loans and other Obligations in the manner set forth in Section 2.06(d), in each case, in an aggregate principal amount equal to the following applicable percentage of such aggregate Net Proceeds in excess of $35,000,000: (I) twenty five percent (25%) (when the Total Leverage Ratio as of the last day of the most recent fiscal quarter for which the Borrower has delivered Holdings’ Financial Statements is greater than 3.00:1.00) and (II) zero percent (0%) (when the Total Leverage Ratio as of the last day of the most recent fiscal quarter for which the Borrower has delivered Holdings’ Financial Statements is less than or equal to 3.00:1.00).
(vi)        Not later than thirty (30) days after the date of receipt (the “Receipt Date”) by a Loan Party (or the Administrative Agent) of any Net Insurance Proceeds or Net Condemnation Proceeds which exceed $2,500,000 in connection with a particular circumstance or event, the Borrower shall prepay (or Cash Collateralize, as applicable) the outstanding Loans and other Obligations in the manner set forth in Section 2.06(d) in an amount equal to such Net Insurance Proceeds or Net Condemnation Proceeds. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Borrower shall not be required to make a prepayment pursuant to this Section 2.06(c)(vi) with respect to any particular Net Insurance Proceeds or Net Condemnation Proceeds if the Borrower advises the Administrative Agent in writing within 30 days after the related Receipt Date that it or another Loan Party intends to (x) repair, restore or replace the assets from which such Net Insurance Proceeds or Net Condemnation Proceeds were derived or (y) invest in productive assets used in the business of the Loan Parties, to the extent such repair, restoration, replacement or investment is completed within twelve (12) months after the related Receipt Date or, if the applicable Loan Party enters into a binding commitment during such twelve (12) month period, within one hundred and eighty (180) days after the expiration of such twelve (12) month period. If, at any time after the occurrence of a Receipt Date and prior to the completion of the corresponding repair, restoration or replacement, the applicable periods provided in the preceding

65




sentence shall elapse without the completion of the related repair, restoration or replacement, or an Event of Default described in Section 6.01(a), (f) or (g) shall occur, then the Borrower shall immediately prepay (or Cash Collateralize, as applicable) the outstanding Loans and other Obligations in the amount and in the manner described in the first sentence of this Section 2.06(c)(vi).
(vii)        The Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent, at the time of each prepayment (or Cash Collateralization, as applicable) required under this Section 2.06(c), (A) a certificate signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower setting forth in reasonable detail the calculation of the amount of such prepayment (or Cash Collateralization, as applicable) and (B) to the extent practicable, at least three days prior written notice of such prepayment (or Cash Collateralization, as applicable). Each notice of prepayment (or Cash Collateralization, as applicable) shall specify the prepayment (or Cash Collateralization, as applicable) date and the Type and principal amount of each Loan (or portion thereof) to be prepaid. In the event that the Borrower shall subsequently determine that the actual amount required to be prepaid (or Cash Collateralized, as applicable) was greater than the amount set forth in such certificate, the Borrower shall promptly make an additional prepayment of the Loans (and/or, if applicable, the Revolving Loan Commitments shall be permanently reduced) and/or deliver additional Cash Collateral in an amount equal to the amount of such excess, and the Borrower shall concurrently therewith deliver to the Administrative Agent a certificate signed by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower demonstrating the derivation of the additional amount resulting in such excess.
(d)        Application of Loan Prepayments. All prepayments required under Sections 2.06(c)(iii)-(vi) shall be applied first, to prepay the Term Loans and Incremental Term Loans on a pro rata basis to the extent Term Loans and Incremental Term Loans are then outstanding, second, to prepay the Swingline Loans to the extent Swing Line Loans are then outstanding, third, to prepay the Revolving Loans to the extent Revolving Loans are then outstanding and fourth, following the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default, to Cash Collateralize the Obligations in an amount equal to 105% of the then Effective Amount of the L/C Obligations (in each case with a permanent reduction in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment to the extent required by Section 2.04(b)(i)). Without modifying the order of application of prepayments set forth in the preceding or succeeding sentence, all such prepayments shall, to the extent possible, be first applied to prepay Base Rate Loans and Base Rate Portions and then if any funds remain, to prepay LIBOR Loans and LIBOR Portions. All such mandatory prepayments of the Term Loans and Incremental Term Loans will be applied to the remaining scheduled amortization payments in the inverse order of maturity.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 2.06, all mandatory prepayments required under Sections 2.06(c)(iii)-(vi), to the extent attributable to Foreign Subsidiaries, are subject to permissibility under local law (e.g., financial assistance, corporate benefit, thin capitalization, capital maintenance and similar legal principles, restrictions on up-streaming of cash intra group and the fiduciary and statutory duties of the directors of the relevant subsidiaries) such that if such Foreign Subsidiary would be in violation of applicable local law by virtue of repatriation, the portion of the funds so affected will not be required to be prepaid and may be retained by the

66




applicable Foreign Subsidiary (provided that the Borrower shall use commercially reasonable efforts to take all actions required by applicable local law to permit such repatriation) until such time the applicable local law permits repatriation to the United Sates whereupon such funds shall be repatriated and promptly applied to the repayment of the Loans pursuant to Section 2.06(c)(iii)-(vi). Further, if Holdings or any of its Subsidiaries determine in good faith that they would incur a material adverse tax liability (including any withholding tax) if all or a portion of the funds required to make a mandatory prepayment were up-streamed, transferred as a Distribution or otherwise repatriated (a “Restricted Amount”), the amount the Borrower will be required to mandatorily prepay shall be reduced by the Restricted Amount until such time as it may upstream, transfer or repatriate such Restricted Amount without incurring such material adverse tax liability, whereupon such Restricted Amount will be repatriated and promptly applied to the repayment of the Loans pursuant to Section 2.06(c)(iii)-(vi).
2.07.        Other Payment Terms.
(a)        Place and Manner. All payments to be made by the Borrower under this Agreement or any other Credit Document shall be made without condition or deduction for any counterclaim, defense, recoupment, setoff or offset. The Borrower shall make all payments due to each Lender or the Administrative Agent under this Agreement or any other Credit Document by payments to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s office located at the address specified in Section 8.01, with each payment due to a Lender to be for the account of such Lender and such Lender’s Applicable Lending Office. The Borrower shall make all payments under this Agreement or any other Credit Document in lawful money of the United States and in same day or immediately available funds not later than 12:00 noon on the date due. The Administrative Agent shall promptly disburse to each Lender each payment received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Lender.
(b)        Date. Whenever any payment due hereunder shall fall due on a day other than a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and such extension of time shall be included in the computation of interest or fees, as the case may be.
(c)        Default Rate. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any Event of Default other than an Event of Default described in Section 6.01(a), (f) or (g), at the option of the Required Lenders, from and after the date of such Event of Default until the time when such Event of Default shall have been cured or waived in writing by the Required Lenders or all the Lenders (as may be required by this Agreement), the Borrower shall pay interest on the aggregate, outstanding principal amount of all Obligations hereunder (excluding Obligations in respect of Lender Rate Contracts and Lender Bank Products) at a per annum rate equal to the otherwise applicable interest rate plus two percent (2.00%) or, if no such per annum rate is applicable to any such Obligations, at a per annum rate equal to the Base Rate, plus the Applicable Margin for Base Rate Loans, plus two percent (2.00%) (the “Default Rate”) payable on demand. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default described in Section 6.01(a), (f) or (g) until the time when such Event of Default shall have been cured or waived in writing by the Required Lenders or all the Lenders (as may be required by this Agreement), the Borrower shall pay interest on the aggregate, outstanding principal amount of all Obligations hereunder at a per annum rate equal to

67




the Default Rate (such Default Rate becoming effective on such date of occurrence of such Event of Default without notice and shall be immediately due and payable without notice or demand). Overdue interest shall itself bear interest at the Default Rate, and shall be compounded with the principal Obligations daily, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable Governmental Rules.
(d)        Application of Payments. All payments hereunder shall be applied first to unpaid fees, costs and expenses then due and payable under this Agreement or the other Credit Documents, second to accrued interest then due and payable under this Agreement or the other Credit Documents and finally to reduce the principal amount of outstanding Loans and L/C Borrowings. The proceeds of the Collateral will be applied as set forth in Section 6.02.
(e)        Failure to Pay the Administrative Agent. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from the Borrower at least one (1) Business Day prior to the date on which any payment is due to the Lenders hereunder that the Borrower will not make such payment in full, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to assume that the Borrower has made or will make such payment in full to the Administrative Agent on such date and the Administrative Agent may, in reliance upon such assumption, cause to be paid to the Lenders on such due date an amount equal to the amount then due such Lenders. If and to the extent the Borrower shall not have so made such payment in full to the Administrative Agent, each such Lender shall repay to the Administrative Agent forthwith on demand such amount distributed to such Lender together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount is distributed to such Lender until the date such Lender repays such amount to the Administrative Agent, at a per annum rate equal to the daily Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. A certificate of the Administrative Agent submitted to any Lender with respect to any amount owing by such Lender under this Section 2.07(e) shall be conclusive absent manifest error.
2.08.        Loan Accounts; Notes.
(a)        Loan Accounts. The obligation of the Borrower to repay the Loans made to it by each Lender and to pay interest thereon at the rates provided herein shall be evidenced by an account or accounts maintained by such Lender on its books (individually, a “Loan Account”), except that any Lender may request that its Loans be evidenced by a note or notes pursuant to Section 2.08(b), Section 2.08(c), and Section 2.08(d). Each Lender shall record in its Loan Accounts (i) the date and amount of each Loan made by such Lender, (ii) the interest rates applicable to each such Loan and each Portion thereof and the effective dates of all changes thereto, (iii) the Interest Period for each LIBOR Loan and LIBOR Portion, (iv) the date and amount of each principal and interest payment on each Loan and Portion and (v) such other information as such Lender may determine is necessary for the computation of principal and interest payable to it by the Borrower hereunder; provided, however, that any failure by a Lender to make, or any error by any Lender in making, any such notation shall not affect the Borrower’s Obligations. The Loan Accounts shall be conclusive absent manifest error as to the matters noted therein. In addition to the Loan Accounts, each Lender and the Administrative Agent shall maintain in accordance with its usual practice accounts or records evidencing the purchases and sales by such Lender of participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans. In the event of any conflict between the accounts and records maintained by the Administrative Agent and the accounts and

68




records of any Lender in respect of such matters, the accounts and records of the Administrative Agent shall control.
(b)        Revolving Loan Notes. Upon request by any Revolving Lender, each Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loans shall be evidenced by a promissory note substantially in the form of Exhibit D (individually, a “Revolving Loan Note”) which note shall be (i) payable to such Revolving Lender, (ii) in the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment, (iii) dated the Closing Date or the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date (or such other date acceptable to the applicable Lender) and (iv) otherwise appropriately completed. The Borrower authorizes each Revolving Lender to record on the schedule annexed to such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Note the date and amount of each Revolving Loan made by such Revolving Lender and of each payment or prepayment of principal thereon made by the Borrower, and agrees that all such notations shall be conclusive absent manifest error with respect to the matters noted; provided, however, that any failure by a Revolving Lender to make, or any error by any Revolving Lender in making, any such notation shall not affect the Borrower’s Obligations. The Borrower further authorizes each Revolving Lender to attach to and make a part of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Note continuations of the schedule attached thereto as necessary. If, because any Revolving Lender designates separate Applicable Lending Offices for Base Rate Loans and LIBOR Loans, such Revolving Lender requests that separate promissory notes be executed to evidence separately such Revolving Loans, then each such note shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit D, mutatis mutandis to reflect such division, and shall be (w) payable to such Revolving Lender, (x) in the amount of such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment, (y) dated the Closing Date or the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date (or such other date acceptable to the applicable Lender) and (z) otherwise appropriately completed. Such notes shall, collectively, constitute a Revolving Loan Note.
(c)        Term Loan Notes.
(i)        Upon request by any Closing Date Term Lender, each Closing Date Term Lender’s Closing Date Term Loan shall be evidenced by a promissory note substantially in the form of Exhibit E (individually, a “Closing Date Term Loan Note”) which note shall be (i) payable to such Closing Date Term Lender, (ii) in the amount of such Closing Date Term Lender’s Closing Date Term Loan, (iii) dated the Closing Date or the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date (or such other date acceptable to the applicable Lender) and (iv) otherwise appropriately completed. If, because any Closing Date Term Lender designates separate Applicable Lending Offices for Base Rate Portions and LIBOR Portions, such Closing Date Term Lender requests that separate promissory notes be executed to evidence separately such Portions, then each such note shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit E, mutatis mutandis to reflect such division, and shall be (w) payable to such Closing Date Term Lender, (x) in the amount of such Closing Date Term Lender’s Closing Date Term Loan, (y) dated the Closing Date or the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date (or such other date acceptable to the applicable Lender) and (z) otherwise appropriately completed. Such notes shall, collectively, constitute a Closing Date Term Loan Note.

69




(ii)        Upon request by any Incremental Term Lender, each Incremental Term Lender’s Incremental Date Term Loan shall be evidenced by a promissory note substantially in the form of Exhibit F (individually, an “Incremental Term Loan Note”) which note shall be (i) payable to such Incremental Term Lender, (ii) in the amount of such Incremental Term Lender’s Incremental Term Loan, (iii) dated the Incremental Effective Date for the applicable Incremental Term Loan Borrowing and (iv) otherwise appropriately completed. If, because any Incremental Term Lender designates separate Applicable Lending Offices for Base Rate Portions and LIBOR Portions, such Incremental Term Lender requests that separate Incremental Term Loan Note be executed to evidence separately such Portions, then each such note shall be substantially in the form of Exhibit F, mutatis mutandis to reflect such division, and shall be (w) payable to such Incremental Term Lender, (x) in the amount of such Incremental Term Lender’s Incremental Term Loan, (y) dated the Incremental Effective Date for the applicable Incremental Term Loan Borrowing and (z) otherwise appropriately completed. Such notes shall, collectively, constitute an Incremental Term Loan Note.
(d)        Swing Line Notes. Upon request by the Swing Line Lender, the Swing Line Lender’s Swing Line Loans shall be evidenced by a promissory note substantially in the form of Exhibit M (individually, a “Swing Line Note”) which note shall be (i) payable to the Swing Line Lender, (ii) in the amount of the Swing Line Lender’s Swing Line Loans, (iii) dated the Closing Date or the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date (or such other date acceptable to the applicable Lender) and (iv) otherwise appropriately completed.
2.09.        Loan Funding.
(a)        Lender Funding and Disbursement to the Borrower. Each Lender shall, before 11:00 a.m. on the date of each Borrowing, make available to the Administrative Agent at the Administrative Agent’s office specified in Section 8.01, in same day or immediately available funds, such Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share or Term Proportionate Share of such Borrowing. After the Administrative Agent’s receipt of such funds and upon satisfaction of the applicable conditions set forth in Section 3.02 (and, if such Borrowing consists of the initial Loans, Section 3.01), the Administrative Agent shall promptly make all funds so received available to the Borrower in like funds as received by the Administrative Agent by (i) crediting the account of the Borrower maintained by the Borrower on the books of Wells Fargo with the amount of such funds or (ii) wire transfer of such funds, in each case in accordance with instructions provided to the Administrative Agent by the Borrower; provided, however, that if, on the date of the Borrowing there are Swing Line Loans and/or L/C Borrowings outstanding, then the proceeds of such Borrowing shall be applied, first, to the payment in full of any such L/C Borrowings, second, to the payment in full of any such Swing Line Loans, and third, to the Borrower as provided above.
(b)        Lender Failure to Fund. Unless the Administrative Agent shall have received notice from a Lender prior to the date of any Borrowing that such Lender will not make available to the Administrative Agent such Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share or Term Proportionate Share, as the case may be, of such Borrowing, the Administrative Agent shall be entitled to assume that such Lender has made or will make such portion available to the Administrative Agent on the date of such Borrowing in accordance with Section 2.09(a), and the

70




Administrative Agent may on such date, in reliance upon such assumption, disburse or otherwise credit to the Borrower a corresponding amount. If any Lender does not make the amount of such Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share or Term Proportionate Share, as the case may be, of any Borrowing available to the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date of such Borrowing, such Lender shall pay to the Administrative Agent, on demand, interest which shall accrue on such amount from the date of such Borrowing until such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent at per annum rates equal to the daily Federal Funds Rate from time to time in effect. A certificate of the Administrative Agent submitted to any Lender with respect to any amount owing by such Lender under this Section 2.09(b) shall be conclusive absent manifest error with respect to such amount. If the amount of any Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share or Term Proportionate Share, as the case may be, of any Borrowing is not paid to the Administrative Agent by such Lender within three (3) Business Days after the date of such Borrowing, the Borrower shall repay such amount to the Administrative Agent, on demand, together with interest thereon, for each day from the date such amount was disbursed to the Borrower until the date such amount is repaid to the Administrative Agent, at the interest rate applicable at the time to the Loans comprising such Borrowing.
(c)        Lenders’ Obligations Several. The failure of any Lender to make the Loan to be made by it as part of any Borrowing or to fund participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans to be funded by it shall not relieve any other Lender of its obligation hereunder to make its Loan as part of such Borrowing or fund its participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans, but, except as a result of a reallocation of a Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share of the Effective Amount of L/C Obligations and Swing Line Loans pursuant to Section 2.16(a)(iv), no Lender shall be obligated in any way to make any Loan or fund any participation in Letters of Credit or Swing Line Loans which another Lender has failed or refused to make or otherwise be in any way responsible for the failure or refusal of any other Lender to make any Loan required to be made by such other Lender on the date of any Borrowing or to fund any participation required to be funded by such other Lender.
2.10.        Pro Rata Treatment.
(a)        Borrowings, Commitment Reductions, Etc. Except as otherwise provided herein (including the application of funds provided for under Section 2.16(a)(ii) arising from the existence of a Defaulting Lender and the termination of the unused Commitment of a Defaulting Lender provided for under Section 2.16(a)(vi)):
(i)        Each Revolving Loan Borrowing and reduction of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment shall be made or shared among the Lenders pro rata according to their respective Revolving Proportionate Shares;
(ii)         (A) The Closing Date Term Loan Borrowing shall be made or shared among the Closing Date Term Lenders pro rata according to their respective Closing Date Term Proportionate Shares and (B) each Incremental Term Loan Borrowing shall be made or shared among the Incremental Term Lenders and New Lenders with Incremental Term Loan Commitments with respect thereto pro rata according to their respective Incremental Term Proportionate Shares;

71




(iii)         Each payment of principal on Loans in any Borrowing or on any L/C Advances in any L/C Borrowing shall be shared among the Lenders which hold the Loans in such Borrowing or the L/C Advances in such L/C Borrowing pro rata according to the respective unpaid principal amounts of such Loans or L/C Advances then owed to such Lenders; provided, however, during any time there is a Defaulting Lender, each payment of principal on Loans or L/C Advances shall be shared by only the Non-Defaulting Lenders that made such Loans or L/C Advances pro rata according to the respective unpaid principal amounts of such Loans or L/C Advances then owed to such Non-Defaulting Lenders until the unpaid principal amounts of all Loans or L/C Advances, as applicable, are held by all Lenders according to their respective Proportionate Shares;
(iv)        Each payment of interest on Loans in any Borrowing shall be shared among the Lenders which hold the Loans in such Borrowing pro rata according to (A) the respective unpaid principal amounts of such Loans of such Lenders and (B) the dates on which such Loans became owing to such Lenders;
(v)        Each payment of Commitment Fees shall be shared among the Lenders with Revolving Loan Commitments (other than Defaulting Lenders) pro rata according to (A) their respective Revolving Proportionate Shares and (B) in the case of each Lender which becomes a Lender hereunder after the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date, the date upon which such Lender so became a Lender;
(vi)         Letter of Credit fees payable under Section 2.02(i) shall be shared among the Lenders with Revolving Loan Commitments (other than Defaulting Lenders) and the L/C Issuer pro rata according to (A) their respective L/C Risk Participations and Fronting Exposure with respect to the applicable Letters of Credit and (B) in the case of each Lender which becomes a Lender hereunder after the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date, the date upon which such Lender so became a Lender;
(vii)         Each payment of interest (other than interest on Loans or interest in respect of Lender Rate Contracts or Lender Bank Products) shall be shared among the Lenders and the Administrative Agent owed the amount upon which such interest accrues pro rata according to (A) the respective amounts so owed such Lenders and the Administrative Agent and (B) the dates on which such amounts became owing to such Lenders and the Administrative Agent;
(viii)        Each payment of any fees due in connection with any amendment hereto or any waiver of or forbearance from any Event of Default existing hereunder shall be shared among those Lenders consenting to such amendment, waiver or forbearance or as otherwise agreed to by such Lenders; and
(ix)     All other payments under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents (including, without limitation, fees paid in connection with any amendment, consent, waiver or the like) shall be for the benefit of the Person or Persons specified.

72




(b)        Sharing of Payments, Etc. If any Lender shall obtain any payment (whether voluntary, involuntary, through the exercise of any right of setoff, offset, or otherwise) on account of the Loans made by it, or the participations in L/C Obligations or in Swing Line Loans held by it, in excess of its ratable share of payments on account of the Loans and the L/C Obligations obtained by all Lenders entitled to such payments, such Lender shall forthwith purchase from the other Lenders such participations in the Loans and/or participations in L/C Obligations or in Swing Line Loans as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Lender to share the excess payment ratably with each of them; provided, however, that if all or any portion of such excess payment is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Lender, such purchase shall be rescinded and each other Lender shall repay to the purchasing Lender the purchase price to the extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such other Lender’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (i) the amount of such other Lender’s required repayment to (ii) the total amount so recovered from the purchasing Lender) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Lender in respect of the total amount so recovered without right to payment of interest. The Borrower agrees that any Lender so purchasing a participation from another Lender pursuant to this Section 2.10(b) may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including the right of setoff or offset) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Lender were the direct creditor of the Borrower in the amount of such participation.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the provisions of this Section 2.10(b) shall not be construed to apply to (x) any payment made by the Borrower pursuant to and applied in accordance with the express terms of this Agreement (including (1) the sharing of principal payments among Non-Defaulting Lenders pursuant to the proviso to Section 2.10(a)(iii) and (2) the application of funds provided for under Section 2.16(a)(ii) arising from the existence of a Defaulting Lender) or (y) any payment obtained by a Lender as consideration for the assignment of or sale of a participation in any of its Loans or participations in L/C Obligations or in Swing Line Loans to any assignee or participant.
2.11.        Change of Circumstances.
(a)        Inability to Determine Rates. If, on or before the first day of any Interest Period for any LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion, (i) any Lender shall advise the Administrative Agent that the LIBOR Rate for such Interest Period cannot be adequately and reasonably determined due to the unavailability of funds in or other circumstances affecting the London interbank market or (ii) any Lender shall advise the Administrative Agent that the rate of interest for such Loan or Portion, as the case may be, does not adequately and fairly reflect the cost to such Lender of making or maintaining such LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion, the Administrative Agent shall immediately give notice of such condition to the Borrower and the other Lenders. After the giving of any such notice and until the Administrative Agent shall otherwise notify the Borrower that the circumstances giving rise to such condition no longer exist, the Borrower’s right to request the making of, conversion to or a new Interest Period for LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions shall be suspended. Any LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions outstanding at the commencement of any such suspension shall be converted at the end of the then current Interest Period for such LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions into Base Rate Loans or Base Rate Portions, as the case may be, unless such suspension has then ended.

73




(b)        Illegality. If any Change of Law shall make it unlawful or impossible for any Lender to make or maintain any LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion, such Lender shall immediately notify the Administrative Agent and the Borrower in writing of such Change of Law. Upon receipt of such notice, (i) the Borrower’s right to request the making of, conversion to or a new Interest Period for LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions with respect to such Lender shall be terminated, and (ii) the Borrower shall, at the request of such Lender, either (A) pursuant to Section 2.01(e), convert any such then outstanding LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions of such Lender into Base Rate Loans or Base Rate Portions, as the case may be, at the end of the current Interest Period for such LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions or (B) immediately repay or convert any such LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions of such Lender if such Lender shall notify the Borrower that such Lender may not lawfully continue to fund and maintain such LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions. Any conversion or prepayment of LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions made pursuant to the preceding sentence prior to the last day of an Interest Period for such LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions shall be deemed a prepayment thereof for purposes of Section 2.13. After any Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrower of such a Change of Law and until such Lender notifies the Administrative Agent and the Borrower that it is no longer unlawful or impossible for such Lender to make or maintain a LIBOR Loan or a LIBOR Portion, all Revolving Loans and all Portions of the Term Loan of such Lender shall be Base Rate Loans and Base Rate Portions, respectively.
(c)        Increased Costs. If, any Change of Law:
(i)        Shall subject any Lender to any tax, duty or other charge with respect to any Loan or Letter of Credit, or shall change the basis of taxation of payments by the Borrower to any Lender under this Agreement (except for Indemnifiable Taxes, Other Taxes and Taxes excluded from indemnification under Section 2.12); or
(ii)        Shall impose, modify or hold applicable any reserve (excluding any Reserve Requirement or other reserve to the extent included in the calculation of the LIBOR Rate for any Loans or Portions), special deposit, liquidity or similar requirement against assets held by, deposits or other liabilities in or for the account of, advances or loans by, or any other acquisition of funds by any Lender for any LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion; or
(iii)        Shall impose on any Lender any other condition related to any LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion or such Lender’s Commitments;
and the effect of any of the foregoing is to increase the cost to such Lender of making, renewing, or maintaining any such LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion or its Commitments or to reduce any amount receivable by such Lender hereunder; then the Borrower shall from time to time, subject to such Lender’s compliance with its obligations under Section 2.15(a), within five (5) Business Days after demand by the Administrative Agent (accompanied by the certificate referred to in the next sentence), pay to such Lender additional amounts sufficient to reimburse such Lender for such increased costs or to compensate such Lender for such reduced amounts; provided that the Borrower shall not be obligated to pay any such amount which arose prior to the date which is 270 days preceding the date of such demand or is attributable to periods prior to the date which is 270 days preceding the date of such demand (except that, if the Change in Law giving rise to such increased costs or reductions is retroactive, then the 270-day period referred to above shall be extended to

74




include the period of retroactive effect thereof). A certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the amount of such increased costs or reduced amounts, submitted by such Lender to the Administrative Agent for delivery to the Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The obligations of the Borrower under this Section 2.11(c) shall survive the payment and performance of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.
(d)        Capital Requirements. If any Lender determines that any Change of Law affecting such Lender or any lending office of such Lender or such Lender’s holding company, if any, regarding capital or liquidity requirements, has or would have the effect of reducing the rate of return on such Lender’s capital or on the capital of such Lender’s holding company, if any, as a consequence of this Agreement, the Commitments of such Lender or the Loans made by, or participations in Letters of Credit or Swingline Loans held by, such Lender, or the Letters of Credit issued by any L/C Issuer, to a level below that which such Lender or such Lender’s holding company could have achieved but for such Change of Law (taking into consideration such Lender’s policies and the policies of such Lender’s holding company with respect to capital adequacy and liquidity), then from time to time the Borrower will pay to such Lender such additional amount or amounts as will compensate such Lender or such Lender’s holding company for any such reduction suffered. A certificate setting forth in reasonable detail the amount of such increased costs, submitted by any Lender to the Administrative Agent for delivery to the Borrower shall be conclusive absent manifest error. The obligations of the Borrower under this Section 2.11(d) shall survive the payment and performance of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.
2.12.        Taxes on Payments.
(a)        Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Section 2.12, all payments by the Borrower under this Agreement or any other Credit Document shall be made free and clear of, and without deduction for, any and all present or future federal, state, local and foreign taxes, levies, imposts, duties, deductions, fees, assessments, withholdings, or other charges of whatever nature and all interest, penalties and other liabilities with respect thereto, including withholding taxes imposed by any jurisdiction or any political subdivision thereof, but excluding (i) taxes imposed on a Lender’s overall net income and franchise taxes imposed on such Lender, in each case, by the jurisdiction of such Lender’s Applicable Lending Office or any political subdivision thereof and (ii) any taxes imposed on any “withholdable payment” payable to such recipient as a result of the failure of such recipient to satisfy the applicable requirements of FATCA (all such nonexcluded taxes, levies, imposts, duties, deductions, fees, assessments, withholdings, or other charges of whatever nature and all interest, penalties and other liabilities being referred to herein as “Indemnifiable Taxes”). If Indemnifiable Taxes are imposed in respect of any sum payable hereunder to any Lender, then (i) subject to the penultimate sentence of Section 2.12(e), the sum payable shall be increased by the amount necessary so that after making all required deductions such Lender shall receive an amount equal to the sum it would have received had no such deductions been made, (ii) the Borrower shall make all required deductions and (iii) the Borrower shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant taxing authority or other Governmental Authority in accordance with applicable law. For the avoidance of doubt, for purposes of this Section 2.12, “applicable law” includes FATCA.

75




(b)         Other Taxes. In addition, the Borrower agrees to pay any present or future stamp or documentary taxes and any excise, transfer, sales and use, value added or property taxes, charges or similar levies that arise from any payment made hereunder or from the execution, delivery or registration of, or otherwise with respect to, this Agreement or any other Credit Document (hereinafter referred to as “Other Taxes”).
(c)        Tax Indemnification. Subject to the penultimate sentence of Section 2.12(e), the Borrower agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent and each Lender for the full amount of all Indemnifiable Taxes and Other Taxes (including any Taxes or Other Taxes imposed by any jurisdiction on amounts payable under this Section 2.12) paid by such Lender, and any liability (including penalties, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such Taxes or Other Taxes were correctly or legally asserted. Such indemnification shall be made within 30 days following the date the Administrative Agent or such Lender makes written demand therefor.
(d)        Evidence of Payment. Within 30 days after the date of any payment of Taxes or Other Taxes withheld hereunder (and, with respect to any Taxes or Other Taxes not so withheld, to the extent available), the Borrower will furnish to the Administrative Agent, at the Administrative Agent’s office, the original or a certified copy of a receipt evidencing payment thereof.
(e)        Withholding Exemption Certificates. On or prior to the date of the initial Loans or, if such date does not occur within thirty (30) days after the date of this Agreement, by the end of such 30-day period, each Lender which is not organized under the laws of the United States or a state thereof shall deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent (A) two duly completed copies of United States Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, Form W-8BEN-E or Form W-8ECI (or successor applicable form), as the case may be, certifying in each case that such Lender is entitled to receive payments of interest under this Agreement without deduction or withholding of any United States federal income taxes, or (B) if the Lender is not a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the IRC and cannot deliver either United States Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN, FormW-8BEN-E or Form W-8ECI (with respect to a complete exemption under an income tax treaty) pursuant to clause (A) above (any such lender, a “Non-Bank Lender”), (x) a certificate substantially in the form of Exhibit K (any such certificate, a “Non-Bank Certificate”) and (y) two accurate and complete original signed copies of United States Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or Form W-8BEN-E (with respect to the portfolio interest exemption) (or successor form) certifying to such Lender’s entitlement as of such date to a complete exemption from United States withholding tax with respect to payments of interest to be made under this Agreement. Each such Lender further agrees (i) promptly to notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of any change of circumstances which would prevent such Lender from receiving payments hereunder without any deduction or withholding of Indemnifiable Taxes and (ii) if such Lender has not so notified the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of any change of circumstances which would prevent such Lender from receiving payments hereunder without any deduction or withholding of Indemnifiable Taxes, then upon the reasonable request of the Borrower or the Administrative Agent, to deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent a new certificate or form, certifying that such Lender is entitled to receive payments under this Agreement

76




without deduction of Indemnifiable Taxes, but only if and to the extent such Lender is legally entitled to do so. If a Lender (other than an assignee pursuant to a request by the Borrower under Section 2.15) fails to provide to the Borrower or the Administrative Agent pursuant to the first sentence of this Section 2.12(e) (or, in the case of an Assignee Lender, Section 8.05(c)) any certificates or other evidence required by such provision to establish that such Lender is, at the time it becomes a Lender hereunder, entitled to receive payments under this Agreement without deduction or withholding of any United States federal income taxes, such Lender shall not be entitled to any indemnification under Section 2.12(a) for any such Taxes imposed on such Lender primarily as a result of such failure, except to the extent that such Lender (or its assignor, if any) was entitled, at the time such Lender became a Lender hereunder, to receive additional amounts from the Borrower with respect to such Tax pursuant to Section 2.12(a). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Section 2.12, the Borrower agrees to pay additional amounts and to indemnify each Lender in the manner set forth in Section 2.12(a) and Section 2.12(c) (without regard to the identity of the jurisdiction requiring the deduction or withholding) in respect of any amounts deducted or withheld by it as described in the immediately preceding sentence as a result of any changes after the Closing Date (or, in the case of any Lender becoming a Lender more than 30 days following the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date, after the date such Lender becomes a Lender) in any applicable law, treaty, governmental rule, regulation, guideline or order, or in the interpretation thereof, relating to Taxes other than FATCA, and, in the case of FATCA, any such change that is not substantially comparable or materially more onerous to comply with than FATCA.
(f)        Lender to Use Reasonable Efforts. Any Lender claiming any additional amounts in respect of Indemnifiable Taxes payable pursuant to this Section 2.12 shall use reasonable efforts (consistent with legal and regulatory restrictions and such Lender’s internal policies) to file any certificate or document reasonably requested by the Borrower, if the making of such a filing would avoid the need for or reduce the amount of any such Indemnifiable Taxes attributable to the Loans and would not, in the sole determination of such Lender, result in any unreimbursed loss, cost or expense or otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender.
(g)         Survival. Without prejudice to the survival of any other agreement contained herein, the agreements and obligations contained in this Section 2.12 shall survive the payment in full of principal, interest and all other Obligations hereunder.
(h)        Tax Returns. Nothing contained in this Section 2.12 shall require the Administrative Agent or any Lender to make available any of its Tax Returns or any other information that it deems to be confidential or proprietary.
(i)        FATCA. If a payment made to a Lender under any Credit Document would be subject to U.S. federal withholding tax imposed by FATCA if such Lender were to fail to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of FATCA, such Lender shall use reasonable efforts to deliver to the Borrower and the Administrative Agent such documentation as is required by FATCA. Solely for purposes of this clause (i), FATCA shall include any amendments made to FATCA after the date of this Agreement.
2.13.        Funding Loss Indemnification. If the Borrower shall (a) repay, prepay or convert any LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion on any day other than the last day of an Interest Period

77




therefor (whether a scheduled payment, an optional prepayment or conversion, a mandatory prepayment or conversion, a payment upon acceleration or otherwise), (b) fail to borrow any LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion for which a Notice of Loan Borrowing has been delivered to the Administrative Agent (whether as a result of the failure to satisfy any applicable conditions or otherwise), (c) fail to convert any Revolving Loans into LIBOR Loans or any Portion of a Term Loan Borrowing into a LIBOR Portion in accordance with a Notice of Conversion delivered to the Administrative Agent (whether as a result of the failure to satisfy any applicable conditions or otherwise), or (d) fail to continue a LIBOR Loan or a LIBOR Portion for which a Notice of Interest Period Selection has been delivered to the Administrative Agent, the Borrower shall pay to the appropriate Lender within five (5) Business Days after demand a prepayment fee, failure to borrow fee, failure to convert fee or failure to continue fee, as the case may be (determined as though 100% of the LIBOR Loan or LIBOR Portion had been funded in the London interbank eurodollar currency market), equal to the sum of:
(a)        the amount, if any, by which (i) the additional interest would have accrued on the amount prepaid or not borrowed at the LIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin for LIBOR Loans and LIBOR Portions if that amount had remained or been outstanding through the last day of the applicable Interest Period exceeds (ii) the interest that such Lender could recover by placing such amount on deposit in the London interbank eurodollar currency market for a period beginning on the date of the prepayment or failure to borrow and ending on the last day of the applicable Interest Period (or, if no deposit rate quotation is available for such period, for the most comparable period for which a deposit rate quotation may be obtained); plus
(b)        all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by such Lender reasonably attributable to such payment, prepayment or failure to borrow.
Each Lender’s determination of the amount of any prepayment fee payable under this Section 2.13 shall be conclusive in the absence of manifest error. The obligations of the Borrower under this Section 2.13 shall survive the payment and performance of the Obligations and the termination of this Agreement.
2.14.        Security.
(a)        Security Documents. The Loans, together with all other Obligations, shall be secured by the Liens granted by the Borrower under the Security Documents. All obligations of a Guarantor under the Credit Documents shall be secured by the Liens granted by such Guarantor under the Security Documents. So long as the terms thereof are in compliance with this Agreement, each Lender Rate Contract and Lender Bank Product shall be secured by the Lien of the Security Documents with the priority set forth in Section 6.02.
(b)        Further Assurances. Subject to the limitations set forth in Section 5.01(i) and the Security Documents, the Borrower shall deliver, and shall cause each Guarantor to deliver, to the Administrative Agent such security agreements, pledge agreements, control agreements, and other instruments, agreements, certificates, opinions and documents (including Uniform Commercial Code financing statements) as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request to:

78




(i)        grant, perfect, maintain, protect and evidence security interests in favor of the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Parties, in the Collateral prior to the Liens or other interests of any Person, except for Permitted Liens; and
(ii)        otherwise establish, maintain, protect and evidence the rights provided to the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Lender Parties, pursuant to the Security Documents.
The Borrower shall fully cooperate with the Administrative Agent and the Lenders and perform all additional acts requested by the Administrative Agent or any Lender to effect the purposes of this Section 2.14.
2.15.        Mitigation Obligations; Replacement of the Lenders.
(a)        If any Lender shall demand any payment under Section 2.11(c), Section 2.11(d) or Section 2.12(a), then such Lender shall (at the request of the Borrower) use its commercially reasonable efforts to designate a different Applicable Lending Office for the funding or booking of its Loans hereunder or to assign its rights and obligation hereunder to another of its offices, branches or Affiliates, if such designation or assignment (i) would eliminate or reduce amounts payable pursuant to Section 2.11(c), Section 2.11(d) or Section 2.12(a), as the case may be, in the future, and (ii) would not subject such Lender to any unreimbursed cost or expense or would not otherwise be disadvantageous to such Lender. The Borrower shall pay all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by such Lender in connection with any such designation or assignment.
(b)        If (a) any Lender shall become a Defaulting Lender, (b) any Lender shall suspend its obligation to make or maintain LIBOR Loans or LIBOR Portions pursuant to Section 2.11(b) for a reason which is not applicable to any other Lender, (c) any Lender shall demand any payment under Sections 2.11(c), 2.11(d) or 2.12(a) and such Lender has declined or is unable to designate a different Applicable Lending Office pursuant to Section 2.15(a), or (d) any Lender has not consented to a proposed change, waiver, discharge or termination of the provisions of this Agreement as contemplated by Section 8.04 that requires the consent of all Lenders or each Lender affected thereby and which has been approved by the Required Lenders as provided in Section 8.04, then the Administrative Agent may (or upon the written request of the Borrower if the Borrower has located or identified a Replacement Lender that is an Eligible Assignee and is reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent as contemplated below, shall use commercially reasonable efforts to) replace such Lender (the “Affected Lender”), or cause such Affected Lender to be replaced, with another lender (the “Replacement Lender”) satisfying the requirements of an Assignee Lender under Section 8.05(c), by having the Affected Lender sell and assign all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents (including for purposes of this Section 2.15, participations in L/C Obligations and in Swing Line Loans) to the Replacement Lender pursuant to Section 8.05(c); provided, however, that neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender shall have any obligation to identify or locate a Replacement Lender for the Borrower (it being expressly agreed that in such circumstances it is the Borrower’s obligation to identify or locate a Replacement Lender that is an Eligible Assignee and is acceptable to the Administrative Agent). Upon receipt by any Affected Lender of a written notice from the Administrative Agent stating that the Administrative Agent is exercising the replacement right set forth in this Section 2.15, such Affected

79




Lender shall sell and assign all of its rights and obligations under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents (including for purposes of this Section 2.15, participations in L/C Obligations and in Swing Line Loans) to the Replacement Lender pursuant to an Assignment Agreement and Section 8.05(c) for a purchase price equal to the sum of the principal amount of the Affected Lender’s Loans so sold and assigned or such other amount is agreed to by such Affected Lender and such Replacement Lender), all accrued and unpaid interest thereon and its ratable share of all fees and other amounts to which it is entitled. Notwithstanding the foregoing, a Lender that is an Affected Lender shall not be required to make an assignment as described in this Section 2.15(b), if prior to the effectiveness of the applicable assignment, the circumstances which made such Lender an Affected Lender cease to apply, whether as a result of a waiver by the applicable Lender or otherwise.
2.16.        Defaulting Lenders.
(a)         Adjustments. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then, until such time as such Lender is no longer a Defaulting Lender, to the extent permitted by applicable law:
(i)         Waivers and Amendments. Such Defaulting Lender’s right to approve or disapprove any amendment, modification, supplement, extension, termination, waiver or consent with respect to this Agreement or any other Credit Document shall be restricted as set forth in the definition of Required Lenders and in the Defaulting Lender Amendment Paragraph.
(ii)        Reallocation of Payments. Any payment of principal, interest, fees or other amounts received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Defaulting Lender (whether voluntary or mandatory, at maturity, pursuant to Section 6.02, received by the Administrative Agent from a Defaulting Lender pursuant to Section 8.06(a) or otherwise), subject to the proviso in Section 2.10(a)(iii), shall be applied at such time or times as may be determined by the Administrative Agent as follows: first, to the payment of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the Administrative Agent hereunder; second, to the payment on a pro rata basis of any amounts owing by such Defaulting Lender to the L/C Issuer or Swing Line Lender; third, if so determined by the Administrative Agent or requested by the L/C Issuer, to Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuer’s Fronting Exposures with respect to such Defaulting Lender in accordance with Section 2.16(c); fourth, if so requested by the Borrower (so long as no Default exists), to the funding of any Loan in respect of which that Defaulting Lender has failed to fund its portion thereof as required by this Agreement, as determined by the Administrative Agent; fifth, if so agreed by the Administrative Agent and the Borrower, to be held in a non-interest bearing deposit account and released in order to (x) satisfy such Defaulting Lender’s potential future funding obligations with respect to Loans under this Agreement and (y) Cash Collateralize the L/C Issuer’s future Fronting Exposures with respect to such Defaulting Lender with respect to future Letters of Credit issued under this Agreement, in accordance with Section 2.16(c); sixth, to the payment of any amounts owing to the Lenders or the L/C Issuer or the Swing Line Lender as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by any Lender or the L/C Issuer or the Swing Line Lender against that Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; seventh, so long as no Default exists, to

80




the payment of any amounts owing to the Borrower as a result of any judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction obtained by the Borrower against such Defaulting Lender as a result of such Defaulting Lender’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; and eighth, to such Defaulting Lender or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction; provided that if (x) such payment is a payment of the principal amount of any Loans or L/C Borrowing in respect of which such Defaulting Lender has not fully funded its appropriate share, and (y) such Loans were made or the related Letters of Credit were issued at a time when the conditions set forth in Section 3.02 were satisfied or waived, such payment shall be applied solely to pay the Loans of, and L/C Borrowings owed to, all Non-Defaulting Lenders on a pro rata basis prior to being applied to the payment of any Loans of, or L/C Borrowings owed to, such Defaulting Lender until such time as all Loans and funded and unfunded participations in L/C Borrowings and Swing Line Loans are held by the Lenders pro rata in accordance with the Commitments without giving effect to Section 2.16(a)(iv). Any payments, prepayments or other amounts paid or payable to a Defaulting Lender that are applied (or held) to pay amounts owed by a Defaulting Lender or to post Cash Collateral pursuant to this Section 2.16(a)(ii) shall be deemed paid to and redirected by such Defaulting Lender, and each Lender irrevocably consents hereto.
(iii)         Certain Fees. Any Defaulting Lender (A) shall not be entitled to receive any Commitment Fee under Section 2.05(b) for any period during which that Lender is a Defaulting Lender (and the Borrower shall not be required to pay any such fees that otherwise would have been required to have been paid to that Defaulting Lender) and (B) shall be limited in its right to receive Letter of Credit fees as provided in Section 2.02(i).
(iv)         Reallocation of Participations to Reduce Fronting Exposure. All or any part of such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share of the Effective Amount of L/C Obligations and Swing Line Loans shall automatically (effective on the day such Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender) be reallocated among the Non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Proportionate Shares (calculated without regard to such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment) but only to the extent that such reallocation does not cause the sum of (I) the Effective Amount of all Revolving Loans made by such Non-Defaulting Lender outstanding at such time and (II) such Non-Defaulting Lender’s Total Lender Risk Participation at such time to exceed such Non-Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Commitment at such time. No reallocation hereunder shall constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder against a Defaulting Lender arising from that Lender having become a Defaulting Lender, including any claim of a Non-Defaulting Lender as a result of such Non-Defaulting Lender’s increased exposure following such reallocation.
(v)        Cash Collateral; Prepayment of Swing Line Loans. If the reallocation described in clause (iv) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Borrower shall, without prejudice to any right or remedy available to it hereunder or under law, immediately following notice by the Administrative Agent, (x) first, prepay Swing Line Loans in an amount equal to the Swing Line Lenders’ Fronting Exposure and (y) second, Cash Collateralize such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share of the Effective Amount of L/C Obligations (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (iv) above) in accordance with Section 2.16(c).

81




(vi)         Termination of Revolving Loan Commitment. The Borrower may terminate the unused amount of the Revolving Loan Commitment of a Defaulting Lender upon not less than three (3) Business Days’ prior notice to the Administrative Agent (which will promptly notify the Lenders thereof), and in such event the provisions of clause (ii) above will apply to all amounts thereafter paid by the Borrower for the account of such Defaulting Lender under this Agreement (whether on account of principal, interest, fees, indemnity or other amounts); provided that (i) no Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing and (ii) such termination will not be deemed to be a waiver or release of any claim the Borrower, the Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuer, the Swing Line Lender or any Lender may have against such Defaulting Lender.
(b)         Defaulting Lender Cure. If the Borrower, the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer and the Swing Line Lender agree in writing in their sole discretion that a Defaulting Lender should no longer be deemed to be a Defaulting Lender, the Administrative Agent will so notify the parties hereto, whereupon as of the effective date specified in such notice and subject to any conditions set forth therein (which may include arrangements with respect to any Cash Collateral), that Lender will, to the extent applicable, purchase that portion of outstanding Loans of the other Lenders or take such other actions as the Administrative Agent may determine to be necessary to cause the Revolving Loans and funded and unfunded participations in Letters of Credit and Swing Line Loans to be held on a pro rata basis by the Lenders in accordance with their Revolving Proportionate Shares (without giving effect to Section 2.16(a)(iv)), whereupon such Lender will cease to be a Defaulting Lender; provided that no adjustments will be made retroactively with respect to fees accrued or payments made by or on behalf of the Borrower while that Lender was a Defaulting Lender; and provided, further, that except to the extent otherwise expressly agreed by the affected parties, no change hereunder from Defaulting Lender to Non-Defaulting Lender will constitute a waiver or release of any claim of any party hereunder arising from that Lender’s having been a Defaulting Lender.
(c)         Cash Collateral Provisions.
(i)         At any time that there shall exist a Defaulting Lender, within one (1) Business Day after the request of the Administrative Agent or the L/C Issuer, the Borrower shall deliver to the Administrative Agent Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to cover all Fronting Exposure of the L/C Issuer (after giving effect to Section 2.16(a)(iv) and any Cash Collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender). In addition, as a condition to issuing any Letter of Credit, the L/C Issuer may require that the Borrower deliver to the Administrative Agent Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to cover all Fronting Exposure (after giving effect to Section 2.16(a)(iv) and any Cash Collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender).
(ii)         All Cash Collateral shall be maintained in blocked, non-interest bearing deposit accounts with the Administrative Agent. The Borrower, and to the extent provided by any Defaulting Lender, such Defaulting Lender, hereby grants to (and subjects to the control of) the Administrative Agent, for the benefit of the Administrative Agent and the L/C Issuer, and agrees to maintain, a first priority security interest in all such Cash Collateral, all as security for the Defaulting Lender’s obligations to which such Cash Collateral may be applied

82




pursuant to clause (iii) below. If at any time the Administrative Agent determines that Cash Collateral is subject to any right or claim of any Person other than the Administrative Agent as herein provided, or that the total amount of such Cash Collateral is less than the applicable Fronting Exposure, the Borrower or the relevant Defaulting Lender will, within one (1) Business Day after the request of the Administrative Agent, pay or provide to the Administrative Agent additional Cash Collateral in an amount sufficient to eliminate such deficiency (after giving effect to any Cash Collateral provided by the Defaulting Lender).
(iii)         Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, Cash Collateral provided under this Section 2.16 in respect of Letters of Credit, shall be held and applied to the satisfaction of the Defaulting Lender’s obligations to fund participations in respect of L/C Obligations (including, as to Cash Collateral provided by a Defaulting Lender, any interest accrued on such obligation) for which the Cash Collateral was so provided, prior to any other application of such property as may be provided for herein.
(iv)         Cash Collateral (or the appropriate portion thereof) provided to reduce Fronting Exposure shall be released promptly following (A) the elimination of the applicable Fronting Exposure (including by the termination of Defaulting Lender status of the applicable Lender (or, as appropriate, its assignee)), or (B) the Administrative Agent’s good faith determination that there exists excess Cash Collateral; provided, however, (x) that Cash Collateral furnished by or on behalf of a Loan Party shall not be released during the continuance of a Default (and, following the application as provided in clause (iii) above, may be otherwise applied in accordance with Section 6.02), and (y) the Person providing Cash Collateral and the L/C Issuer may agree that Cash Collateral shall not be released but instead held to support future anticipated Fronting Exposure or other obligations.
2.17.         Incremental Term Loans; Increases in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment
(a)        Incremental Term Loans.
(i)        The Borrower may at any time prior to the Term Loan Maturity Date request one or more Borrowings of additional Term Loans (each, an “Incremental Term Loan”); provided, however, that the Borrower shall not make such a request if the conditions set forth in Section 2.17(i) are not satisfied. Any such request shall be submitted by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly forward copies to the existing Term Lenders), specify the proposed Incremental Effective Date (as defined below) and amount of such proposed Incremental Term Loan Borrowing and be accompanied by a certificate of a Responsible Officer of the Borrower certifying that no Event of Default exists or will occur as a result of such Incremental Term Loan Borrowing. Only those existing Term Lenders that agree to extend an Incremental Term Loan as part of such Incremental Term Loan Borrowing (each, an “Incremental Term Lender”) and those New Lenders that agree to extend an Incremental Term Loan as part of such Incremental Term Loan Borrowing that shall be entitled to receive any fees in connection with such Incremental Term Loan Borrowing. No Term Lender shall have any obligation, express or implied, to offer any Incremental Term Loan. Only the consent of each Incremental Term Lender shall be required for an advance of an Incremental Term Loan pursuant to this Section 2.17(a). No Term Lender that

83




elects not to advance an Incremental Term Loan may be replaced in respect of its existing Term Loan as a result thereof without such Term Lender’s written consent.
(ii)        Any Incremental Term Loans will be made subject to this Agreement pursuant to an amendment (an “Incremental Term Loan Amendment”) to this Agreement and, as appropriate, the other Credit Documents, executed (in the case of such amendment to this Agreement) by the Borrower, each Incremental Term Lender, if any, each New Lender, if any, and the Administrative Agent. The Incremental Term Loans shall have terms and conditions substantially identical to those applicable to the Closing Date Term Loans (other than with respect to pricing (provided that the pricing for the Incremental Term Loans shall be based on the same “Tiers” and corresponding Total Leverage Ratios (but not necessarily the same Applicable Margins) as is set forth in the then effective definition of Applicable Margin), arrangement fees, upfront fees and additional fees, amortization, maturity and any different drawing conditions that are agreed to in the applicable Incremental Term Loan Amendment) and will be otherwise on terms and subject to conditions reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent. Each Incremental Term Loan Amendment shall, without the consent of any other Lenders, amend the provisions of this Agreement and the other Credit Documents to set forth the terms of the Incremental Term Loans, including the amount and final maturity thereof (which shall not be earlier than the Revolving Loan Maturity Date or the Term Loan Maturity Date), any provisions relating to amortization (it being agreed that the weighted average life of such loans may be no less than the then current weighted average life of the Closing Date Term Loans and that there shall be no provisions for mandatory prepayments of and offers to prepay the Incremental Term Loans (other than on a ratable basis with the Closing Date Term Loans)) and the interest to accrue and be payable thereon and any fees to be payable in respect thereof, and to effect such other changes as the Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall deem reasonably necessary or advisable in connection with such Incremental Term Loans. If the Applicable Margin for any Incremental Term Loans payable to the Lenders in respect of such Incremental Term Loans exceeds the Applicable Margin for the Closing Date Term Loans (determined as of the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date) by more than 1.00%, then (x) the Applicable Margins for the Closing Date Term Loans shall be increased so that the Applicable Margin for the Closing Date Term Loans (determined as of the July 2017 Amendment Effective Date, but giving effect to such increase in the Applicable Margins) is no more than 1.00% less than the Applicable Margin for such Incremental Term Loans and (y) the Applicable Margins for the Revolving Loans shall be increased by a corresponding amount. For purposes of comparing the Applicable Margins of the Incremental Term Loans and the Closing Date Term Loans, such Applicable Margins shall be calculated in the manner described in the foregoing sentence for each “Tier” of the definition of Applicable Margin (assuming such “Tier” were in effect for the entire term of the Incremental Term Loans and Closing Date Term Loans), and any increase to the Applicable Margins for the Closing Date Term Loans and Revolving Loans shall be made pursuant to the foregoing sentence only with respect to those “Tiers” of the definition of Applicable Margin for which the Applicable Margin for the Closing Date Term Loans is more than 0.50% less than the interest at the corresponding pricing tiers applicable to such Incremental Term Loans. All Incremental Term Loans shall rank pari passu in right of payment with the other Loans and shall benefit equally and ratably from the Security Documents.

84




(b)        Increases in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment. The Borrower may, at any time prior to the Revolving Loan Maturity Date, request to increase the Total Revolving Loan Commitment provided, however, that the Borrower shall not make such a request if the conditions set forth in Section 2.17(i) are not satisfied. Any such request shall be submitted by the Borrower to the Administrative Agent (which shall promptly forward copies to the existing Revolving Lenders), specify the proposed Incremental Revolving Effective Date (as defined below) and amount of such proposed increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment and be accompanied by a certificate of a Responsible Officer of the Borrower certifying that no Event of Default exists or will occur as a result of such increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment. Only those existing Revolving Lenders that agree to increase the Total Revolving Loan Commitment (each, an “Incremental Revolving Lender”) and those New Lenders that agree to commit to increase the Total Revolving Loan Commitment shall be entitled to receive any fees in connection with such increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment. No Revolving Lender shall have any obligation, express or implied, to offer an increase in its Revolving Loan Commitment. Only the consent of each Incremental Revolving Lender shall be required for an increase in the respective Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to this Section 2.17(b). No Revolving Lender that elects not to increase the amount of its Revolving Loan Commitment may be replaced in respect of its existing Revolving Loan Commitment as a result thereof without such Revolving Lender’s written consent.
(c)        Identification of Lenders. Each existing Term Lender (for an Incremental Term Loan Borrowing) or existing Revolving Lender (for an increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment) shall, within ten (10) Business Days after the Borrower have submitted their request under Section 2.17(a) or Section 2.17(b), as applicable, specify the amount of the proposed Incremental Term Loan or increase in its Revolving Loan Commitment which it is willing to offer. To the extent the Incremental Term Loan Commitments of the existing Term Lenders or increased Revolving Loan Commitments of the existing Revolving Lenders, as applicable, are insufficient or at an earlier time agreed to by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent, the Borrower may designate new lenders who qualify as Eligible Assignees and which are reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent as additional Lenders hereunder in accordance with this Section 2.17(c) (each such new Lender being a “New Lender”), which New Lender may advance all or a portion of an Incremental Term Loan Borrowing or provide all or a portion of the increase in the amount of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment. The Administrative Agent may agree to assist the Borrower in identifying new lenders who qualify as Eligible Assignees, and if the Administrative Agent so agrees, the Borrower may pay a fee to the Administrative Agent solely for the account of the Administrative Agent in connection with such services. The Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall have discretion jointly to adjust the allocation of an increased aggregate principal amount of Incremental Term Loans among Incremental Term Lenders and New Lenders. The Borrower and the Administrative Agent shall have discretion jointly to adjust the allocation of an increased aggregate principal amount of the Total Revolving Loan Commitment among Incremental Revolving Lenders and New Lenders.
(d)        Joinder of New Lenders. Each New Lender shall become an additional party hereto as a New Lender concurrently with the effectiveness of the proposed Incremental Term Loan Borrowing or increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment upon its execution of an instrument of joinder (which may contain such modifications to this Agreement

85




and terms and conditions relating thereto as may be necessary solely to ensure that the Incremental Term Loans made by such New Lenders as part of such Incremental Term Loan Borrowings or the Revolving Loans made by such New Lender under the increased Total Revolving Loan Commitment are treated as Obligations for all purposes under the Credit Documents), in each case in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent. Each New Lender shall provide the documentation required by Section 2.12.
(e)        Conditions to Incremental Effective Date. The obligation of the applicable Incremental Term Lenders and New Lenders to make an Incremental Term Loan is subject to compliance with the terms of this Section 2.17 and the satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 2.17(i), in each case to the reasonable satisfaction of the Administrative Agent. The obligation of the applicable Incremental Revolving Lenders and New Lenders to increase the Total Revolving Loan Commitment is subject to compliance by the Borrower with the terms set forth in this Section 2.17 and the reasonable satisfaction of the conditions set forth in Section 2.17(i), in case to the satisfaction of the Administrative Agent. Any increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment and/or Incremental Term Loan requested by Borrower shall occur on the date proposed by the Borrower if the conditions identified above are complied with (the “Incremental Effective Date”) in the principal amount equal to (i) the amount to which the Incremental Revolving Lenders are willing to commit as an increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment or the aggregate amount which the Incremental Term Lenders are willing to advance as an Incremental Term Loan plus (ii) the aggregate amount offered by the New Lenders with respect to the Total Revolving Loan Commitment or an Incremental Term Loan, in either case as adjusted by the Borrower and the Administrative Agent pursuant to the last sentence of Section 2.17(c).
(f)        Funding of Incremental Term Loans; Rebalancing of Revolving Loan Commitments. On or prior to the Incremental Effective Date, with respect to any Incremental Term Loan, the Administrative Agent shall notify each applicable Incremental Term Lender and New Lender of the amount required to be funded by such Incremental Term Lender or New Lender. On or prior to the Incremental Effective Date, with respect to any increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment, the Administrative Agent shall notify each Incremental Revolving Lender and New Lender of the amount required to be paid by or to such Lender so that the Revolving Loans held by the Revolving Lenders on the Incremental Effective Date (before giving effect to any new Revolving Loans made on such date) shall be held by each Revolving Lender pro rata in accordance with the Revolving Loan Commitments of the Revolving Lenders as adjusted pursuant to the last sentence of Section 2.17(c). Each Revolving Lender which is required to reduce the amount of Revolving Loans held by it (each such Revolving Lender, a “Decreasing Lender”) shall irrevocably assign, without recourse or warranty of any kind whatsoever (except that each Decreasing Lender warrants that it is the legal and beneficial owner of the Revolving Loans assigned by it under this Section 2.17(f) and that such Revolving Loans are held by such Decreasing Lender free and clear of adverse claims created by it), to each Incremental Revolving Lender and New Lender participating in the applicable increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment, and each applicable Incremental Revolving Lender and New Lender shall irrevocably acquire from the Decreasing Lenders, a portion of the principal amount of the Revolving Loans of each Decreasing Lender (collectively, the “Acquired Portion”) outstanding on the Incremental Effective Date (before giving effect to any new Revolving Loans made on such date) in an amount such that the principal amount of the Revolving

86




Loans held by each applicable Incremental Revolving Lender, New Lender and Decreasing Lender as of the Incremental Effective Date shall be held in accordance with each such Revolving Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share (if any) as of such date. Such assignment and acquisition shall be effective on the Incremental Effective Date automatically and without any action required on the part of any party other than the payment by the applicable Incremental Revolving Lenders and New Lenders to the Administrative Agent for the account of the Decreasing Lenders of an aggregate amount equal to the Acquired Portion, which amount shall be allocated and paid by the Administrative Agent promptly after receipt in the type of funds received and to the extent practicable on the Incremental Effective Date to the Decreasing Lenders pro rata based upon the respective reductions in the principal amount of the Revolving Loans held by such Revolving Lenders on the Incremental Effective Date (before giving effect to any new Revolving Loans made on such date). Each of the Administrative Agent and the Revolving Lenders shall adjust its records accordingly to reflect the payment of the Acquired Portion. The payments to be made in respect of the Acquired Portion shall be made by the applicable Incremental Revolving Lenders and New Lenders to the Administrative Agent in Dollars in immediately available funds at or before 12:00 p.m. on the Incremental Effective Date, such payments to be made by the applicable Incremental Revolving Lenders and New Lenders pro rata based upon the respective increases in the amount of the Revolving Loan Commitments held by such Revolving Lenders on the Incremental Effective Date.
(g)        Required Documentation. In connection with any Incremental Term Loan Borrowing or increase the Total Revolving Loan Commitment, the Borrower shall execute and deliver such documentation relating to such Incremental Term Loan Borrowing or increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment as the Administrative Agent may reasonably request, including new or amended Incremental Term Loan Notes or Revolving Loan Notes, any joinder agreements related to a New Lender, reaffirmations of the Guaranty executed by the Guarantors, copies of resolutions regarding any Incremental Term Loan Borrowing or increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment certified as true and correct by a Responsible Officer of the Borrower, amendments and legal opinions.
(h)        Prepayments of LIBOR Loans. To the extent any of the Revolving Loans acquired by the applicable Incremental Revolving Lenders and New Lenders from the Decreasing Lenders pursuant to Section 2.17(f) above are LIBOR Loans and the Incremental Effective Date is not the last day of an Interest Period for such LIBOR Loans, the Decreasing Lenders shall be entitled to compensation from the Borrower as provided in Section 2.13 (as if Borrower had prepaid such Revolving Loans in an amount equal to the Acquired Portion on the Incremental Effective Date).
(i)        Conditions to All Incremental Term Loans and Increases in Total Revolving Loan Commitments. No Incremental Term Borrowing or increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment may be made under this Agreement unless, after giving effect to such Incremental Term Loan Borrowing or increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment, each of the following conditions is satisfied:
(i)        The aggregate principal amount of all Incremental Term Loan Borrowings made during the term of this Agreement, together with the aggregate amount of all

87




increases in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to this Section 2.17 during the term of this Agreement, does not exceed $75,000,000;
(ii)        The proposed Incremental Term Loan Borrowing or increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitments shall be equal to $5,000,000 or a multiple of $1,000,000 in excess thereof;
(iii)        The aggregate number of Incremental Term Loan Borrowings made during the term of this Agreement, together with the aggregate number of all increases in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment during the term of this Agreement, does not exceed three (3);
(iv)        The Borrower shall not have previously reduced or cancelled the Total Revolving Loan Commitment pursuant to Section 2.04(a); and
(v)         No Event of Default has occurred and is continuing or shall occur as a result of such Incremental Term Loan Borrowing or increase in the Total Revolving Loan Commitment.
2.18.        One-Time Extension Option.
(a)         The Borrower may make a one-time request, by written notice to the Administrative Agent and each of the Lenders not less than 30 days prior to the earliest Maturity Date, that the Revolving Loan Maturity Date, the Term Loan Maturity Date and the Incremental Term Loan Maturity Date (as to each tranche of Loans, the “Existing Maturity Date”) be extended for one year (the “Requested Maturity Date”). Each Lender, acting in its sole discretion, shall, not later than the date which is 10 days after the receipt by the Lenders of any such notice from the Borrower, notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent in writing of its election to extend or not to extend the Maturity Date with respect to its Commitments and Loans. Any Lender that does not timely notify the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of its election to extend the Maturity Date shall be deemed to have elected not to extend the Maturity Date with respect to its Commitments and Loans (any Lender that timely notifies the Borrower and the Administrative Agent of an election not to extend its Commitments and Loans and any Lender so deemed to have elected not to extend its Revolving Loan Commitment, Revolving Loans and Term Loans being referred to as a “Terminating Lender”). The election of any Lender to agree to a requested extension shall not obligate any other Lender so to agree. For the avoidance of doubt, each Lender shall only have the option to either elect to or decline to extend its Maturity Date for all of its Commitments and Loans.
(b)         If and only if Lenders holding at least 35% of the aggregate amount of Revolving Loan Commitments and Term Loans on the date of the notice delivered by the Borrower pursuant to Section 2.18(a) above (including Revolving Loan Commitments and Term Loans of all Terminating Lenders on such date) shall have agreed during the period referred to in such Section 2.18(a) to extend the Existing Maturity Date, then (A) the Maturity Date of the Lenders other than Terminating Lenders (each, a “Continuing Lender” and collectively, the “Continuing Lenders”) shall, subject to the other provisions of this Agreement, be extended to the Requested Maturity Date, and as to such Lenders the term “Maturity Date”, as used herein, shall on and after the date as of which the requested extension is effective mean such Requested

For the avoidance of doubt, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein or the other Credit Documents, the Administrative Agent is acting as administrative agent for the Lenders only and the Administrative Agent is not acting as administrative agent for any other Lender Parties; the Lender Parties (other than the Lenders) that are receiving the benefit of the Collateral are receiving such benefit as an accommodation from the Administrative Agent in its capacity as collateral agent for such Lender Parties and the Administrative Agent shall have no liability whatsoever to such Lender Parties. The Co-Syndication Agents and the Joint Lead Arrangers shall not have any duties or responsibilities or any liabilities under this Agreement or any other Credit Documents and any amendments, consents, waivers or any other actions taken in connection with this Agreement or the other Credit Documents shall not, except to the extent expressly set forth in Section 8.04(e), require the consent of the Co-Syndication Agents or Joint Lead Arrangers, in such capacity. The Administrative Agent shall not have any duties or responsibilities except those expressly set forth in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document, be a trustee for any Lender (or any Affiliate of such Lender that is party to a Lender Rate Contract or providing Lender Bank Products) or have any fiduciary duty to any Lender (or any Affiliate of such Lender that is party to a Lender Rate Contract or providing Lender Bank Products). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action which is contrary to this Agreement or any other Credit Document or any applicable Governmental Rules. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any Lender shall be responsible to any other Lender for any recitals, statements, representations or warranties made by any Loan Party contained in this Agreement or in any other Credit Document, for the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any other Credit Document or for any failure by any Loan Party to perform its obligations hereunder or thereunder. The Administrative Agent may employ agents and attorneys-in-fact and shall not be responsible to any Lender for the negligence or misconduct of any such agents or attorneys-in-fact selected by it with reasonable care. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its directors, officers, employees, agents or advisors shall be responsible to any Lender for any action taken or omitted to be taken by it or them hereunder or under any other Credit Document or in connection herewith or therewith, except to the extent determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have arisen from its or their own gross negligence or willful misconduct. Except as otherwise provided under this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall take such action with respect to the Credit Documents as shall be directed by the Required Lenders or in the absence of such direction, such action as the Administrative Agent in good faith deems advisable under the circumstances.
(b)        Any co-agents, sub-agents and attorneys-in-fact appointed by the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 7.01(a) for purposes of holding or enforcing any Lien on the Collateral (or any portion thereof) granted under the Security Documents, or for exercising any rights and remedies thereunder and hereunder at the direction of the Administrative Agent, shall be entitled to the benefits of all provisions of this Article VII, Section 8.02 and Section 8.03 as if set forth in full herein with respect thereto.

123




(c)        The L/C Issuer shall act on behalf of the Revolving Lenders with respect to any Letters of Credit issued by it and the documents associated therewith until such time (and except for so long) as the Administrative Agent may agree at the request of the Required Lenders to act for the L/C Issuer with respect thereto; provided, however, that the L/C Issuer shall have all of the benefits and immunities (i) provided to the Administrative Agent in this Article VII with respect to any acts taken or omissions suffered by the L/C Issuer in connection with Letters of Credit issued by it or proposed to be issued by it and the application and agreements for letters of credit pertaining to the Letters of Credit as fully as if the term “Administrative Agent” as used in this Article VII included the L/C Issuer with respect to such acts or omissions, and (ii) as additionally provided herein with respect to the L/C Issuer.
7.02.        Reliance by the Administrative Agent, L/C Issuer and Swing Line Lender. The Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuer and the Swing Line Lender shall be entitled to rely upon any certificate, notice or other document (including any facsimile or e-mail) believed by it in good faith to be genuine and correct and to have been signed or sent by or on behalf of the proper Person or Persons (including any certificate, notice or other document from a Loan Party that a sale, transfer, or other disposition of Collateral is permitted by Section 5.02(c)), and upon advice and statements of legal counsel, independent accountants and other experts selected by the Administrative Agent with reasonable care. As to any other matters not expressly provided for by this Agreement, the Administrative Agent shall not be required to take any action or exercise any discretion, but shall be required to act or to refrain from acting upon instructions of the Required Lenders and shall in all cases be fully protected by the Lenders in acting, or in refraining from acting, hereunder or under any other Credit Document in accordance with the instructions of the Required Lenders (or all Lenders if required by Section 8.04), and such instructions of the Required Lenders (or all the Lenders as the case may be) and any action taken or failure to act pursuant thereto shall be binding on all of the Lenders.
7.03.        Defaults. The Administrative Agent shall not be deemed to have knowledge or notice of the occurrence of any Default unless the Administrative Agent has received a written notice from a Lender or the Borrower, referring to this Agreement, describing such Default and stating that such notice is a “Notice of Default”. If the Administrative Agent receives such a notice of the occurrence of a Default, the Administrative Agent shall give prompt notice thereof to the Lenders. The Administrative Agent shall take such action with respect to such Default as shall be reasonably directed by the Required Lenders; provided, however, that until the Administrative Agent shall have received such directions, the Administrative Agent may (but shall not be obligated to) take such action, or refrain from taking such action, with respect to such Default as it shall deem advisable in the best interest of the Lenders. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the order and manner in which the Lenders’ rights and remedies are to be exercised (including, without limitation, the enforcement by any Lender of its Note) shall be determined by the Required Lenders in their sole discretion.
7.04.        Lender Indemnification. Without limiting the Obligations of the Borrower hereunder, each Lender agrees to indemnify the Administrative Agent, ratably in accordance with its aggregate Proportionate Share of all Obligations and Commitments, for any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements

124




of any kind or nature whatsoever which may at any time be imposed on, incurred by or asserted against the Administrative Agent in any way relating to or arising out of this Agreement or any documents contemplated by or referred to herein or therein or the transactions contemplated hereby or thereby or the enforcement of any of the terms hereof or thereof; provided, however, that no Lender shall be liable for any of the foregoing to the extent determined by a final, non-appealable judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction to have arisen from the Administrative Agent’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. The Administrative Agent shall be fully justified in refusing to take or in continuing to take any action hereunder unless it shall first be indemnified to its satisfaction by the Lenders against any and all liability and expense which may be incurred by it by reason of taking or continuing to take any such action. The obligations of each Lender under this Section 7.04 shall survive the payment and performance of the Obligations, the termination of this Agreement and any Lender ceasing to be a party to this Agreement (with respect to events which occurred prior to the time such Lender ceased to be a Lender hereunder).
7.05.        Non-Reliance. Each Lender acknowledges that it has, independently and without reliance on the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it has deemed appropriate, made its own appraisal of the business, prospects, management, financial condition and affairs of the Loan Parties and its own decision to enter into this Agreement and agrees that it will, independently and without reliance upon the Administrative Agent or any other Lender, and based on such documents and information as it shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to make its own appraisals and decisions in taking or not taking action under this Agreement. Neither the Administrative Agent nor any of its Affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents or advisors shall (a) be required to keep any Lender informed as to the performance or observance by any Loan Party of the obligations under this Agreement or any other document referred to or provided for herein or to make inquiry of, or to inspect the properties or books of any Loan Party; (b) have any duty or responsibility to disclose to or otherwise provide any Lender, and shall not be liable for the failure to disclose or otherwise provide any Lender, with any credit or other information concerning any Loan Party which may come into the possession of the Administrative Agent or that is communicated to or obtained by the bank serving as Administrative Agent or any of its Affiliates in any capacity, except for notices, reports and other documents and information expressly required to be furnished to the Lenders by the Administrative Agent hereunder or the other Credit Documents; or (c) be responsible to any Lender for (i) any recital, statement, representation or warranty made by any Loan Party or any officer, employee or agent of any Loan Party in this Agreement or in any of the other Credit Documents, (ii) the value, validity, effectiveness, genuineness, enforceability or sufficiency of this Agreement or any Credit Document, (iii) the value or sufficiency of the Collateral or the validity or perfection of any of the liens or security interests intended to be created by the Credit Documents, or (iv) any failure by any Loan Party to perform its obligations under this Agreement or any other Credit Document.
7.06.        Resignation of the Administrative Agent. The Administrative Agent may resign at any time by giving thirty (30) days prior written notice thereof to the Borrower and the Lenders. Upon any such resignation, the Required Lenders shall have the right to appoint a successor Administrative Agent, which successor Administrative Agent, if not a Lender, shall be reasonably acceptable to the Borrower; provided, however, that the Borrower shall have no right to approve a successor Administrative Agent if a Default has occurred and is continuing. Upon the acceptance

125




of any appointment as the Administrative Agent hereunder by a successor Administrative Agent, such successor Administrative Agent shall thereupon succeed to and become vested with all the rights, powers, privileges and duties of the retiring Administrative Agent, and the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from the duties and obligations thereafter arising hereunder; provided that the retiring Administrative Agent shall be discharged from the duties and obligations arising hereunder from and after the end of such thirty (30) day period even if no successor has been appointed. If no such successor has been appointed, the Required Lenders shall act as the Administrative Agent, hereunder and under the other Credit Documents. After any retiring Administrative Agent’s resignation hereunder as the Administrative Agent, the provisions of this Article VII shall continue in effect for its benefit in respect of any actions taken or omitted to be taken by it while it was acting as the Administrative Agent. The successor Administrative Agent (or if there is no successor, one of the Lenders appointed by the Required Lenders that accepts such appointment) shall also simultaneously replace the then existing Administrative Agent and the then existing Administrative Agent shall be fully released as “L/C Issuer” and “Swing Line Lender” hereunder pursuant to documentation in form and substance reasonably satisfactory to the then existing Administrative Agent, and any successor Administrative Agent appointed pursuant to this Section 7.06 shall, upon its acceptance of such appointment, become the successor “L/C Issuer” and “Swing Line Lender” for all purposes hereunder.
7.07.        Collateral Matters and Guaranty Matters.
(a)        The Administrative Agent is hereby authorized by each Lender (on its own behalf and on behalf of any Affiliate of such Lender that is party to a Lender Rate Contract or providing Lender Bank Products), without the necessity of any notice to or further consent from any Lender (or any Affiliate of such Lender that is party to a Lender Rate Contract or providing Lender Bank Products), and without the obligation to take any such action, to take any action with respect to any Collateral or any Security Document which may from time to time be necessary to perfect and maintain perfected the Liens of the Security Documents.
(b)        Each of the Lenders (on its own behalf and on behalf of any Affiliate of such Lender that is party to a Lender Rate Contract or providing Lender Bank Products) irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent, at its option and in its discretion, to release (and to execute and deliver such documents, instruments and agreements as the Administrative Agent may deem necessary to release) any Lien granted to or held by the Administrative Agent upon any Collateral (i) upon termination of the Commitments and the full Cash Collateralization of the then outstanding L/C Obligations and the payment in full of all Loans and all other Obligations payable under this Agreement and under the other Credit Documents (other than contingent indemnification obligations and Obligations in respect of Lender Rate Contracts and Lender Bank Products except to the extent the Administrative Agent has received prior written notice from the applicable Lender Party of any such Lender Rate Contract or the existence of such Obligations in respect of Lender Bank Products); (ii) constituting property of the Loan Parties which is sold, transferred or otherwise disposed of in connection with any transaction not prohibited by this Agreement or the Credit Documents; (iii) constituting property leased to the Loan Parties under an operating lease which has expired or been terminated in a transaction not prohibited by this Agreement or the Credit Documents or which will concurrently expire and which has not been and is not intended by the

126




Loan Parties to be, renewed or extended; (iv) consisting of an instrument, if the Indebtedness evidenced thereby has been paid in full; or (v) if approved or consented to by those of the Lenders required by Section 8.04. In the case of clause (ii) above involving a sale of a Guarantor, the Lenders also irrevocably authorize the Administrative Agent to release such Guarantor from the applicable guaranty. Upon request by the Administrative Agent, the Lenders will (and will cause their Affiliates that are party to Lender Rate Contracts or provided Lender Bank Products to) confirm in writing the Administrative Agent’s authority to release particular types or items of Collateral pursuant to this Section 7.07.
(c)         Unless all the Lenders otherwise consent in writing, any and all cash collateral for the Obligations shall be released to the Borrower, to the extent not applied to the Obligations, only if (i) the Commitments have been terminated (ii) all Obligations (other than contingent indemnification obligations and Obligations in respect of Lender Rate Contracts and Lender Bank Products except to the extent the Administrative Agent has received prior written notice from the applicable Lender Party of any such Lender Rate Contract or the existence of such Obligations in respect of Lender Bank Products) have been paid in full and are no longer outstanding, including, without limitation, any L/C Obligations or any other contingent obligations.
7.08.        Performance of Conditions. For the purpose of determining fulfillment by the Borrower and the other Loan Parties of conditions precedent specified in Sections 3.01 and 3.02 only, each Lender shall be deemed to have consented to, and approved or accepted, or to be satisfied with each document or other matter sent by the Administrative Agent to such Lender for consent, approval, acceptance or satisfaction, or required under Article III to be consented to, or approved by or acceptable or satisfactory to, that Lender, unless an officer of the Administrative Agent who is responsible for the transactions contemplated by the Credit Documents shall have received written notice from that Lender prior to the making of the requested Loan or the issuance of the requested Letter of Credit specifying its objection thereto and either (i) such objection shall not have been withdrawn by written notice to the Administrative Agent or (ii) in the case of any condition to the making of a Loan, that Lender shall not have made available to the Administrative Agent that Lender’s Revolving Proportionate Share of such Loan or Letter of Credit.
7.09.        The Administrative Agent in its Individual Capacity; Other Relationships. The Administrative Agent and its affiliates may make loans to, issue letters of credit for the account of, accept deposits from and generally engage in any kind of banking or other business with any Loan Party and its Affiliates as though the Administrative Agent were not the Administrative Agent, the L/C Issuer or Swing Line Lender hereunder. With respect to Loans, if any, made by the Administrative Agent in its capacity as a Lender, the Administrative Agent in its capacity as a Lender shall have the same rights and powers under this Agreement and the other Credit Documents as any other Lender and may exercise the same as though it were not the Administrative Agent, L/C Issuer or Swing Line Lender, and the terms “Lender” or “Lenders” shall include the Administrative Agent in its ca
