All of the Seller’s right, title and interest in and to all Receivables and the Related Assets with respect thereto arising on each day prior to the Termination Date shall, without further action of any type being required on the part of the Purchaser or the Seller (and notwithstanding any delay in making payment of the Purchase Price therefor, or any delay in making any notation reflecting payment of such Purchase Price), be automatically transferred on such day to the Purchaser, whereupon the Purchaser shall have the obligation to pay the Purchase Price in respect thereof in the manner, at the time and otherwise in accordance with the terms specified in this Agreement.  Prior to paying the Purchase Price hereunder in respect of any Purchase, the Purchaser may request of the Seller, and the Seller shall deliver, such approvals, opinions, information, reports or documents as the Purchaser may reasonably request.

 

(b)                                 It is the intention of the parties hereto that each Purchase of Receivables made hereunder shall constitute a true sale of such Receivables and the Related Assets with respect thereto (including, in the case of Receivables, a “sale of accounts,” as such term is used in Article 9 of the UCC), which sales shall, in each case, be absolute and irrevocable and provide the Purchaser with the full benefits of ownership of such Receivables and Related Assets.

Except for the Purchase Price Credits owed pursuant to Section 2.3 hereof, each sale of Receivables by the Seller to the Purchaser is made without recourse to the Seller; provided, however, that (i) the Seller shall be liable to the Purchaser for all representations, warranties and covenants made by the Seller pursuant to the terms of this Agreement or any other Transaction Document, and (ii) such sale does not constitute and is not intended to result in an assumption by the Purchaser of any obligation of the Seller, any Transferring Affiliate or any other Person arising under or in connection with the Receivables, the Related Assets and/or the related Contracts. In view of the intention of the parties hereto that the Purchases of Receivables made hereunder shall constitute sales of such Receivables rather than a loan secured by such Receivables, the Seller agrees on or prior to the date hereof to mark its master data processing records relating to the Receivables with a legend, acceptable to the Purchaser, evidencing that the Purchaser has purchased such Receivables as provided in this Agreement and to note in its financial statements that its Receivables have been sold to the Purchaser.

 

(c)                                  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, no Purchases shall be made hereunder from and after the time of any Event of Bankruptcy with respect to the Seller or the Purchaser.

 

SECTION 2.2.  Payment for the Purchases.  (a)  The Purchase Price for each Purchase of Receivables hereunder shall be payable in full by the Purchaser to the Seller by one or any combination of the following means:

 

(i)                                     by the issuance of equity in the manner contemplated in that certain Stockholder and Subscription Agreement dated as of August 28, 1997 between the Seller and the Purchaser or in such other manner as may from time to time be agreed as between the Seller and the Purchaser or as may be deemed to have been effected in accordance with the terms hereof (the action of the Seller giving rise to any such issuance of equity being a “Capital Contribution”);

 

(ii)                                  by the delivery of immediately available funds, to the extent of funds then available to the Purchaser or then being made available to the Purchaser in connection with its subsequent sale of an interest in such Receivables to the Agent (on behalf of any Conduit Investor or the Bank Investors, as applicable) under the TAA;

 

(iii)                               by the delivery of a Letter of Credit procured by and for the account of the Purchaser in accordance with Section 2.8, in form and substance satisfactory to the Seller, for the benefit of such beneficiary as shall have been designated by the Seller; and/or

 

(iv)                              by the application of the proceeds of a Revolving Loan.

 

The Purchase Price for each Purchase shall be payable in full by the Purchaser to the Seller or its designee on the date of such Purchase, except that the Purchaser may, with respect to any such Purchase, offset against such Purchase Price any amounts owed by the Seller to the Purchaser hereunder and which have become due but remain unpaid.

 

(b)                                 If the Purchase Price in respect of any Purchase shall exceed an amount equal to (i) the aggregate amount then being received by the Purchaser from any Transfers under the TAA plus (ii) the aggregate face amount of all Letters of Credit then being issued at the

 

12



 

request of the Seller in connection with such Purchase, the Purchaser shall, with notice to the Seller, pay such shortfall (a “Purchase Price Shortfall”) by borrowing from the Seller a revolving loan (each a “Revolving Loan”), and the Seller, subject to the remaining provisions of this paragraph, irrevocably agrees to advance, and shall be deemed to have advanced, a Revolving Loan in the amount so specified by the Purchaser; provided, however, that no such Revolving Loan shall be made to the Purchaser, if, after giving effect thereto, either (x) the aggregate outstanding amount of the Revolving Loans would exceed the aggregate Outstanding Balance of the Eligible Receivables minus the aggregate Net Investment outstanding at such time under the TAA or (y) the Purchaser’s net worth would be less than an amount (the “Minimum Net Worth”) that is at such time the greater of (A) $5,000,000 or (B) three percent (3.00%) of the sum of the aggregate Net Investment and the aggregate face amount of all Letters of Credit outstanding at such time under the TAA.  The Revolving Loans shall be evidenced by, and shall be payable in accordance with the terms and provisions of, a promissory note in the form of Exhibit E hereto (the “Subordinated Note”) and shall be payable solely from funds which the Purchaser is not required under the TAA to set aside for the benefit of, or otherwise pay over to, the Agent, any Conduit Investor and/or the Bank Investors.

 

(c)                                  If, in respect of any Purchase, there shall continue to be a Purchase Price Shortfall after applying the proceeds of any Revolving Loan extended on the date of such Purchase, then the Seller shall be deemed to have made a Capital Contribution having a value equal to the otherwise unpaid portion of the total Purchase Price owed on such day.

 

(d)                                 The respective Purchase Prices for the Purchases made during any calendar month shall be settled on a monthly basis on the Settlement Date occurring in the succeeding calendar month, such settlement to be made based on the information contained in the Investor Report in respect of such calendar month.  With respect to any such settlement, each adjustment to the outstanding balance of the Subordinated Note made pursuant to this Article II and each Capital Contribution made by the Seller to the Purchaser pursuant to this Article II shall be deemed to have occurred and shall be effective as of the last Business Day of the calendar month to which such settlement relates.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent the Purchaser receives either Collections or proceeds from any Incremental Transfers, which, in either case, it is not required to hold in trust for, or remit to, the Agent, any Conduit Investor and/or any of the Bank Investors pursuant to the TAA, then the Purchaser shall remit such funds to the Seller (net of any funds needed to pay existing expenses of the Purchaser which are then accrued and unpaid) in the following order of application:  first to pay the Purchase Price for any Receivables Purchased from the Seller; second to pay amounts owed by the Purchaser to the Seller under the Subordinated Note; provided, that if on any Settlement Date it is determined that the aggregate amount of funds so remitted by the Purchaser to the Seller during any calendar month exceeded the aggregate of the amounts described in clauses first and second above due and payable by the Purchaser to the Seller during such calendar month, such excess funds shall be returned forthwith by the Seller to the Purchaser.  The Purchaser will be responsible for payment of all fees and expenses in connection with the issuance of the Letters of Credit.  The Purchaser will be the sole account party on all Letters of Credit and the Seller will have no recourse liability to any L/C Issuer or any reimbursement obligations in respect of any Letter of Credit.

SECTION 2.3.  Purchase Price Credit Adjustments.  (a)  If on any day the Outstanding Balance of a Receivable is either (x) reduced as a result of any defective, rejected or returned merchandise or services, any discount, credit, Contractual Adjustment, rebate, dispute, warranty claim, repossessed or returned goods, chargeback, allowance, any billing adjustment or other adjustment, or (y) reduced or canceled as a result of a setoff or offset in respect of any claim by any Person (whether such claim arises out of the same or a related transaction or an unrelated transaction), the Purchaser shall be entitled to a Purchase Price Credit in an amount equal to the full amount of such reduction or cancellation.  In addition, if on any day it is determined that (i) any of the representations or warranties in Article III was untrue with respect to a Receivable as of the date such representation or warranty was made or (ii) any of the representations or warranties set forth in Section 3.1(d) or Section 3.1(j) becomes untrue with respect to a Receivable (whether on or after the date of any transfer thereof to the Purchaser as contemplated hereunder) or (iii) a Receivable that was formerly treated as or represented to be an Eligible Receivable does not satisfy the requirements in paragraph (xi) of the definition of “Eligible Receivable” in the TAA or becomes a Diluted Government Program Receivable, then, in any such case, the Purchaser shall be entitled to a Purchase Price Credit in an amount equal the Outstanding Balance of such Receivable (determined without giving effect to any write-off with respect thereto).  If any Purchase Price Credit to which the Purchaser is entitled pursuant to this Section 2.3 exceeds the Purchase Price of the Receivables to be sold hereunder on any date, then the Seller shall pay the remaining amount of such Purchase Price Credit to the Purchaser in cash on the next succeeding Business Day; provided that, if the Termination Date has not occurred, the Seller shall be allowed to deduct the remaining amount of such Purchase Price Credit from any indebtedness owed to it under the Subordinated Note.

 

(b)                                 Any payment by an Obligor in respect of any indebtedness owed by it to the Seller shall, except as otherwise specified by such Obligor or otherwise required by contract or law and unless otherwise instructed by the Purchaser, be applied as a Collection of any Receivable of such Obligor which was included in a Purchase hereunder (starting with the oldest such Receivable) before being applied to any other receivable or other indebtedness of such Obligor.

 

SECTION 2.4.  Payments and Computations, Etc.  All amounts to be paid or deposited by the Seller hereunder shall be paid or deposited in accordance with the terms hereof no later than 11:00 a.m. (New York City time) on the day when due in immediately available funds.  The Seller shall, to the extent permitted by law, pay to the Purchaser, upon demand, interest on all amounts not paid or deposited when due hereunder at a rate equal to 2% per annum plus the Base Rate.  All computations of interest hereunder shall be made on the basis of a year of 360 days for the actual number of days (including the first but excluding the last day) elapsed.  Any computations by the Purchaser of amounts payable by the Seller hereunder shall be binding upon the Seller absent manifest error.

 

SECTION 2.5.  Transfer of Records to Purchaser.  (a) In connection with the Purchases of Receivables hereunder, the Seller hereby sells, transfers, assigns and otherwise conveys to the Purchaser all of the Seller’s right and title to and interest in the Records relating to all Receivables included in any Purchase hereunder, without the need for any further documentation in connection with any such Purchase.  In connection with such transfer, the Seller hereby grants to each of the Purchaser and the Collection Agent (including, without

 

14



 

limitation, any successor Collection Agent appointed in accordance with the TAA) an irrevocable, non-exclusive license to use, without royalty or payment of any kind, all software now or hereafter used by the Seller to account for the Receivables, to the extent necessary to administer the Receivables, whether such software is owned by the Seller or is owned by others and used by the Seller under license agreements with respect thereto (the “Software”).  As of the date hereof, with respect to all Software now existing, either (i) no consent by any licensor of the Seller to such grant is required, (ii) if any such consent is required, such consent has been obtained, or (iii) the data administered and managed with the use of such Software is in a form such that other types of software that are generally available may be used to administer and manage such data in the same fashion as then being administered and managed with the applicable Software.  If after the date hereof the consent by any licensor of the Seller to such grant shall be required, the Seller shall promptly obtain such consent.  The license granted hereby shall be irrevocable, and shall not expire until the date on which this Agreement shall terminate in accordance with its terms.

 

(b)                                 The Seller shall take such action requested by the Purchaser and/or the Agent, from time to time hereafter, that may be reasonably necessary or appropriate to ensure that the Purchaser (and its assignees) has (i) an enforceable ownership interest in the Records relating to the Receivables purchased from the Seller hereunder and (ii) an enforceable right (whether by license or sublicense or otherwise) to use all of the computer software used to account for the Receivables and/or to recreate such Records.

 

SECTION 2.6.  Protection of Ownership Interest of the Purchaser.  (a)  The Seller agrees that it will, and will cause each Transferring Affiliate to, from time to time, at its expense, promptly execute and deliver all instruments and documents and take all actions as may be necessary or as the Purchaser or the Agent may reasonably request in order to perfect or protect the ownership interest of the Purchaser in the Receivables and Related Assets with respect thereto or to enable the Purchaser to exercise or enforce any of its rights and remedies hereunder. Without limiting the foregoing, the Seller will, upon the request of the Purchaser or the Agent, in order to accurately reflect this purchase and sale transaction, execute and file such financing or continuation statements or amendments thereto or assignments thereof as may be requested by the Purchaser or the Agent.  The Seller shall, upon request of the Purchaser or the Agent, obtain such additional search reports as the Purchaser or the Agent shall request.  To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, each of the Purchaser and the Agent shall be permitted to sign and file continuation statements and amendments thereto and assignments thereof without the Seller’s signature.  Carbon, photographic or other reproduction of this Agreement or any financing statement shall be sufficient as a financing statement.  The Seller shall not, and shall not permit any Transferring Affiliate to, change its respective name, identity or corporate structure (within the meaning of Section 9-402(7) of the UCC as in effect in any applicable state) nor relocate its respective chief executive office or any office where Records are kept unless it shall have: (i) given each of the Purchaser and the Agent at least thirty (30) days prior notice thereof and (ii) prepared at Seller’s expense and delivered to each of the Purchaser and the Agent all financing statements, instruments and other documents necessary to preserve and protect the Purchaser’s ownership interest in the Receivables and the Related Assets with respect thereto or requested by the Purchaser or the Agent in connection with such change or relocation.  Any filings under the UCC or otherwise that are occasioned by such change in name or location shall be made at the expense of the Seller.

(b)                                 Upon the addition of any wholly-owned subsidiary of the Seller as a Transferring Affiliate pursuant to subsection (a) above, the provisions of this Agreement, including Exhibit J, shall, without further act or documentation, be deemed amended to apply to

SECTION 2.8.  Letters of Credit.

(b)                                 In the event that the Seller requests one or more Letters of Credit hereunder, the Seller shall on a timely basis provide the Purchaser with such information as is necessary for the Purchaser to obtain such Letters of Credit from one or more L/C Issuers, and shall otherwise comply with any requests for information made by the Purchaser or the applicable L/C Issuers to facilitate the issuance of such Letters of Credit.

SECTION 9.11.  Subordination.  The Seller agrees that any indebtedness, obligation or claim, it may from time to time hold or otherwise have (including, without limitation any obligation or claim arising in connection with the Revolving Loans) against the Purchaser or any assets or properties of the Purchaser, whether arising hereunder or otherwise existing, shall be subordinate in right of payment to the prior payment in full of any indebtedness or obligation of the Purchaser owing to the Agent, any Administrative Agent, any Conduit Investor or any Bank Investor under the TAA.  The subordination provision contained herein is for the direct benefit of, and may be enforced by, the Agent, any Administrative Agent, any Conduit Investor, any Bank Investor and/or any of their respective assignees under the TAA.

 

SECTION 9.12.  Characterization of the Transactions Contemplated by the Agreement.  (a) It is the intention of the parties that each Purchase hereunder shall constitute a sale of such Receivables, together with the Related Assets with respect thereto, from the Seller to the Purchaser, conveying good title thereto free and clear of any Adverse Claims, and that such Receivables and Related Assets not be part of the Seller’s estate in the event of an insolvency.  If, notwithstanding the foregoing, the transactions contemplated under this Agreement should be deemed a financing and not a sale or such sale shall for any reason be ineffective or unenforceable (any of the foregoing a “Recharacterization”), the Seller and the Purchaser intend that the Seller shall be deemed to have granted to the Purchaser a first priority perfected and continuing security interest in all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Receivables now or hereafter arising that are sold to the Purchaser pursuant to this Agreement, together with the Related Assets with respect thereto, and that this Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law.

 

(b)                                 In the case of any Recharacterization, each of the Seller and the Purchaser represents and warrants that each remittance of Collections by the Seller to the Purchaser hereunder will have been (i) in payment of a debt incurred by the Seller in the ordinary course of business or financial affairs of the Seller and the Purchaser and (ii) made in the ordinary course of business or financial affairs of the Seller and the Purchaser.  In addition, to further protect the interests of the Purchaser and its assigns, the Seller hereby grants to the Purchaser (for the benefit of itself and the other Indemnified Parties) a first priority perfected and continuing security interest in all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in, to and under the Receivables arising after the Termination Date, together with the Related Assets with respect thereto.  The

 

42



 

security interests deemed granted and granted pursuant to the two preceding sentences shall secure all obligations of the Seller hereunder and under the other Transaction Documents (including, without limitation, all indemnification and other obligations of the Seller under Article VIII of this Agreement).  The Seller hereby assigns to the Purchaser all of its rights and remedies under the Transferring Affiliate Letter (and all instruments, documents and agreements executed in connection therewith) with respect to the Receivables and the Related Assets and with respect to any obligations thereunder of any Originating Entity with respect to the Receivables and the Related Assets (including, without limitation, all security interests granted by the Transferring Affiliates under the Transferring Affiliate Letter and all indemnification obligations of the Transferring Affiliates under Section 17 of the Transferring Affiliate Letter).

 

SECTION 9.13.  Perfection Representations. The Perfection Representations shall be a part of the Agreement for all purposes.  The Seller hereby makes the representations and warranties set forth in the Perfection Representations as of the date of each sale of Receivables hereunder.  The Perfection Representations shall survive termination of this Agreement.

Subordinated Revolving Note

 

Lexington, Massachusetts

August 28, 1997

 

1.                                      Note.

 

For value received, the undersigned, NMC Funding Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the Borrower), hereby unconditionally promises to pay to the order of National Medical Care, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the Lender), in lawful money of the United States of America and in immediately available funds, on the Collection Date (as defined below) the aggregate unpaid principal sum outstanding of all Revolving Loans made from time to time by the Lender to the Borrower pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of that certain Receivables Purchase Agreement dated as of August 28, 1997 between the Lender and the Borrower (as amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the Purchase Agreement).  Reference to Section 2.2 of the Purchase Agreement is hereby made for a statement of the terms and conditions under which the loans evidenced hereby have been and will be made.  The Collection Date shall be the later to occur of (i) the Termination Date under that certain Transfer and Administration Agreement dated as of even date herewith (as the same may be amended, restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time, the TAA) among the Borrower, Enterprise Funding Corporation (the Company), certain Bank Investors from time to time party thereto (together with the Company, the Investors), National Medical Care, Inc. as Collection Agent and NationsBank, NA., as Agent for the Investors, and (ii) the date all of the Aggregate Unpaids under the TAA shall have been repaid in full and all other obligations of the Borrower to the Investors and the Agent thereunder or in connection therewith shall have been indefeasibly satisfied in full (such Aggregate Unpaids and other obligations being the Senior Claim).  All terms which are capitalized and used herein and which are not otherwise specifically defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to such terms in the Purchase Agreement.

 

2.                                      Interest.

 

(a)                                 The Borrower further promises to pay interest on the outstanding unpaid principal amount of any Revolving Loans from the date hereof until payment in full hereof at a rate per annum equal to the one-month LIBOR rate (as reported in the Bloomberg proprietary online service) plus 1.5% (the Interest Rate).  The Interest Rate shall be re-set on the first Business Day of each month, based on the rate reported in Bloomberg on that date, and the re-set rate shall be in effect during the month then beginning.

 

(b)                                 If the Borrower shall default in the payment of any principal hereof, the Borrower promises to, on demand, pay interest at the rate of the Interest Rate plus 1.0% on any such unpaid amounts, from the date such payment is due to the date of actual payment.

 

(c)                                  Interest shall be payable on the first calendar day of each month (or, if such day is not a Business Day, the next following Business Day) in arrears, provided, however, that the Borrower may elect, on the date any interest payment is due hereunder, to defer such

 

1



 

payment and upon such election the amount of interest due but unpaid on such date shall constitute principal under this Subordinated Revolving Note.

 

3.                                      Principal Payments.

 

(a)                                 The outstanding principal of any loan made under this Subordinated Revolving Note shall be due and payable on the Collection Date and may be repaid or prepaid at any time without premium or penalty.

 

(b)                                 The Lender is authorized and directed by the Borrower to enter in the Lender’s books and records the date and amount of each Revolving Loan made by it which is evidenced by this Subordinated Revolving Note and the amount of each payment of principal made by the Borrower, and absent manifest error, such entries shall constitute prima facie evidence of the accuracy of the information so entered; provided that neither the failure of the Lender to make any such entry or any error therein shall expand, limit or affect the obligations of the Borrower hereunder.

 

4.                                      Subordination.

 

The indebtedness evidenced by this Subordinated Revolving Note is subordinated to the prior payment in full of all of the Borrower’s obligations under the TAA.  The subordination provisions contained herein are for the direct benefit of, and may be enforced by, the Agent and the Investors and/or any of their assignees (collectively, the Senior Claimants) under the TAA.  Until the Collection Date, the Lender shall not demand, accelerate, sue for, take, receive or accept from the Borrower, directly or indirectly, in cash or other property or by set-off or any other manner (including, without limitation, from or by way of collateral) any payment or security of all or any of the indebtedness under this Subordinated Revolving Note or exercise any remedies or take any action or proceeding to enforce the same.  The Lender hereby agrees that it will not institute against the Borrower any proceeding of the type constituting an Event of Bankruptcy unless and until the date that is one year and one day after the Collection Date has occurred.  Nothing in this paragraph shall restrict the Borrower from paying, or the Lender from requesting, any payments under this Subordinated Revolving Note so long as (i) the Borrower is not required under the TAA to set aside the funds proposed to be used for such payments for the benefit of, or otherwise pay over such funds to, any of the Senior Claimants, (ii) no Termination Event or Potential Termination Event shall have occurred and then be continuing under the TAA and no Collection Agent Default shall have occurred and then be continuing under the TAA and (iii) the making of such payment would not otherwise violate the terms and provisions of either the Purchase Agreement or the TAA.  Should any payment, distribution or security or proceeds thereof be received by the Lender in violation of the immediately preceding sentence, the Lender agrees that such payment shall be segregated, received and held in trust for the benefit of, and deemed to be the property of, and shall be immediately paid over and delivered to the Agent for the benefit of the Senior Claimants.

 

5.                                      Bankruptcy; Insolvency.

 

Upon the occurrence of any Event of Bankruptcy involving the Borrower as debtor, then and in any such event the Senior Claimants shall receive payment in full of all amounts due or to

 

2



 

become due on or in respect of the Senior Claim (including Discount accruing under the TAA after the commencement of any such proceeding, whether or not any or all of such Discount is an allowable claim in any such proceeding) before the Lender shall be entitled to receive any payment on account of this Subordinated Revolving Note, and to that end, any payment or distribution of assets of the Borrower of any kind or character, whether in cash, securities or other property, in any applicable insolvency proceeding, which would otherwise be payable to or deliverable upon or with respect to any or all indebtedness under this Subordinated Revolving Note, is hereby assigned to and shall be paid or delivered by the Person making such payment or delivery (whether a trustee in bankruptcy, a receiver, custodian or liquidating trustee or otherwise) directly to the Agent for application to, or as collateral for the payment of, the Senior Claim until such Senior Claim shall have been paid in full and satisfied.

 

6.                                      Amendments.

 

This Subordinated Revolving Note shall not be amended, modified or terminated except in accordance with Section 9.2 of the Purchase Agreement.

 

7.                                      Governing Law.

 

This Subordinated Revolving Note shall be interpreted and the rights and liabilities of the parties hereto determined in accordance with the laws and decisions of the State of New York.  Wherever possible each provision of this Subordinated Revolving Note shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any provision of this Subordinated Revolving Note shall be prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of this Subordinated Revolving Note.

 

8.                                      Waivers.

 

All parties hereto, whether as makers, endorsers, or otherwise, severally waive presentment for payment, demand, protest and notice of dishonor.  The Lender additionally expressly waives all notice of the acceptance by any Senior Claimant of the subordination and other provisions of this Subordinated Revolving Note and expressly waives reliance by any Senior Claimant upon the subordination and other provisions herein provided.

 

9.                                      Assignment.

 

This Subordinated Revolving Note may not be assigned, pledged or otherwise transferred to any party without the prior written consent of the Agent, and any such attempted transfer shall be void.

Legal Proceedings

 

The Company is routinely involved in numerous claims, lawsuits, regulatory and tax audits, investigations and other legal matters arising, for the most part, in the ordinary course of its business of providing healthcare services and products. Legal matters that the Company currently deems to be material are described below. For the matters described below in which the Company believes a loss is both reasonably possible and estimable, an estimate of the loss or range of loss exposure is provided. For the other matters described below, the Company believes that the loss probability is remote and/or the loss or range of possible losses cannot be reasonably estimated at this time. The outcome of litigation and other legal matters is always difficult to predict accurately and outcomes that are not consistent with the Company’s view of the merits can occur. The Company believes that it has valid defenses to the legal matters pending against it and is defending itself vigorously. Nevertheless, it is possible that the resolution of one or more of the legal matters currently pending or threatened could have a material adverse effect on its business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

Commercial Litigation

 

The Company was originally formed as a result of a series of transactions it completed pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization dated as of February 4, 1996, by and between W.R. Grace & Co. and Fresenius SE (the “Merger”). At the time of the Merger, a W.R. Grace & Co. subsidiary known as W.R. Grace & Co.-Conn. had, and continues to have, significant liabilities arising out of product-liability related litigation (including asbestos-related actions), pre-Merger tax claims and other claims unrelated to National Medical Care, Inc. (“NMC”), which was W.R. Grace & Co.’s dialysis business prior to the Merger. In connection with the Merger, W.R. Grace & Co.-Conn. agreed to indemnify the Company, FMCH [Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc.], and NMC against all liabilities of W.R. Grace & Co., whether relating to events occurring before or after the Merger, other than liabilities arising from or relating to NMC’s operations. W.R. Grace & Co. and certain of its subsidiaries filed for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (the “Grace Chapter 11 Proceedings”) on April 2, 2001.

 

F-1



 

Prior to and after the commencement of the Grace Chapter 11 Proceedings, class action complaints were filed against W.R. Grace & Co. and FMCH by plaintiffs claiming to be creditors of W.R. Grace & Co.-Conn., and by the asbestos creditors’ committees on behalf of the W.R. Grace & Co. bankruptcy estate in the Grace Chapter 11 Proceedings, alleging, among other things that the Merger was a fraudulent conveyance, violated the uniform fraudulent transfer act and constituted a conspiracy. All such cases have been stayed and transferred to or are pending before the U.S. District Court as part of the Grace Chapter 11 Proceedings.

 

In 2003, the Company reached agreement with the asbestos creditors’ committees on behalf of the W.R. Grace & Co. bankruptcy estate and W.R. Grace & Co. in the matters pending in the Grace Chapter 11 Proceedings for the settlement of all fraudulent conveyance and tax claims against it and other claims related to the Company that arise out of the bankruptcy of W.R. Grace & Co. Under the terms of the settlement agreement as amended (the “Settlement Agreement”), fraudulent conveyance and other claims raised on behalf of asbestos claimants will be dismissed with prejudice and the Company will receive protection against existing and potential future W.R. Grace & Co. related claims, including fraudulent conveyance and asbestos claims, and indemnification against income tax claims related to the non-NMC members of the W.R. Grace & Co. consolidated tax group upon confirmation of a W.R. Grace & Co. bankruptcy reorganization plan that contains such provisions. Under the Settlement Agreement, the Company will pay a total of $115,000 without interest to the W.R. Grace & Co. bankruptcy estate, or as otherwise directed by the Court, upon plan confirmation. No admission of liability has been or will be made. The Settlement Agreement has been approved by the U.S. District Court. In January and February 2011, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court entered orders confirming the plan of reorganization and the confirmation orders were affirmed by the U.S. District Court on January 31, 2012. Multiple parties have appealed to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and the plan of reorganization will not be implemented until the appeals are finally resolved.

 

Subsequent to the Merger, W.R. Grace & Co. was involved in a multi-step transaction involving Sealed Air Corporation (“Sealed Air,” formerly known as Grace Holding, Inc.). The Company is engaged in litigation with Sealed Air to confirm its entitlement to indemnification from Sealed Air for all losses and expenses incurred by the Company relating to pre-Merger tax liabilities and Merger-related claims. Under the Settlement Agreement, upon final confirmation of a plan of reorganization that satisfies the conditions of the Company’s payment obligation, this litigation will be dismissed with prejudice.

 

On April 4, 2003, FMCH filed a suit in the U. S. District Court for the Northern District of California, styled Fresenius USA, Inc., et al., v. Baxter International Inc., et al., Case No. C 03-1431, seeking a declaratory judgment that FMCH does not infringe patents held by Baxter International Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates (“Baxter”), that the patents are invalid, and that Baxter is without right or authority to threaten or maintain suit against FMCH for alleged infringement of Baxter’s patents. In general, the asserted patents concern the use of touch screen interfaces for hemodialysis machines. Baxter filed counterclaims against FMCH seeking more than $140,000 in monetary damages and injunctive relief, and alleging that FMCH willfully infringed on Baxter’s patents. On July 17, 2006, the court entered judgment on a jury verdict in favor of FMCH finding all asserted claims of Baxter patents invalid as obvious and/or anticipated in light of prior art.

 

On February 13, 2007, the court granted Baxter’s motion to set aside the jury’s verdict in favor of FMCH and reinstated the patents and entered judgment of infringement. Following a trial on damages, the court entered judgment on November 6, 2007 in favor of Baxter on a jury award of $14,300. On April 4, 2008, the court denied Baxter’s motion for a new trial, established a royalty payable to Baxter of 10% of the sales price for continuing sales of FMCH’s 2008K hemodialysis machines and 7% of the sales price of related disposables, parts and service beginning November 7, 2007, and enjoined sales of the touchscreen-equipped 2008K machine effective January 1, 2009. The Company appealed the court’s rulings to the

 

F-2



 

United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (“Federal Circuit”). In October 2008, the Company completed design modifications to the 2008K machine that eliminate any incremental hemodialysis machine royalty payment exposure under the District Court order. On September 10, 2009, the Federal Circuit reversed the district court’s decision and determined that the asserted claims in two of the three patents at issue are invalid. As to the third patent, the Federal Circuit affirmed the district court’s decision; however, the Court also vacated the injunction and award of damages. These issues were remanded to the District Court for reconsideration in light of the invalidity ruling on most of the claims. As a result, FMCH is no longer required to fund the court-approved escrow account set up to hold the royalty payments ordered by the district court. Funds of $70,000 were contributed to the escrow fund. Upon remand, the district court reduced the post verdict damages award to $10,000 and $61,000 of the escrowed funds was returned to FMCH. In the parallel reexamination of the last surviving patent, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences ruled that the remaining Baxter patent is invalid. On May 17, 2012 the Federal Circuit affirmed the U.S Patent and Trademark Office’s ruling and invalidated the final remaining Baxter patent. Baxter’s request to the Federal Circuit for a rehearing has been denied.

 

On August 27, 2012, Baxter filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, styled Baxter International Inc., et al., v. Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc., Case No. 12-cv-06890, alleging that the Company’s LibertyTM cycler infringes certain U.S. patents that were issued to Baxter between October 2010 and June 2012. The Company believes it has valid defenses to these claims, and will defend this litigation vigorously.

 

Other Litigation and Potential Exposures

 

Renal Care Group, Inc. (“RCG”), which the Company acquired in 2006, is named as a nominal defendant in a complaint originally filed September 13, 2006 in the Chancery Court for the State of Tennessee Twentieth Judicial District at Nashville styled Indiana State District Council of Laborers and Hod Carriers Pension Fund v. Gary Brukardt et al. Following the trial court’s dismissal of the complaint, plaintiff’s appeal in part, and reversal in part by the appellate court, the cause of action purports to be a class action on behalf of former shareholders of RCG and seeks monetary damages only against the individual former directors of RCG. The individual defendants, however, may have had claims for indemnification and reimbursement of expenses against the Company. Subject to the approval of the Nashville Chancery Court, the plaintiff has agreed to dismiss the Complaint with prejudice against the plaintiff and all other class members in exchange for a payment that is not material to the Company.

 

On July 17, 2007, resulting from an investigation begun in 2005, the United States Attorney filed a civil complaint in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri (St. Louis) against Renal Care Group, Inc., its subsidiary RCG Supply Company, and FMCH in its capacity as RCG’s current corporate parent. The complaint seeks monetary damages and penalties with respect to issues arising out of the operation of RCG’s Method II supply company through 2005, prior to FMCH’s acquisition of RCG in 2006. The complaint is styled United States of America ex rel. Julie Williams et al. vs. Renal Care Group, Renal Care Group Supply Company and FMCH. On August 11, 2009, the Missouri District Court granted RCG’s motion to transfer venue to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee (Nashville). On March 22, 2010, the Tennessee District Court entered judgment against defendants for approximately $23,000 in damages and interest under the unjust enrichment count of the complaint but denied all relief under the six False Claims Act counts of the complaint. On June 17, 2011, the District Court entered summary judgment against RCG for $82,643 on one of the False Claims Act counts of the complaint. On June 23, 2011, the Company appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

 

F-3



 

On October 5, 2012, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals substantially reversed the District Court, vacated the District Court judgment and damages award, and entered judgment for the FMCH defendants on the principal False Claims Act counts of the complaint. The Court of Appeals remanded the case to the District Court for further proceedings and trial only on the unjust enrichment and ‘steering’ counts of the complaint. The Company will contest those counts if they are pursued.

 

On February 15, 2011, a qui tam relator’s complaint under the False Claims Act against FMCH was unsealed by order of the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts and served by the relator. The United States has not intervened in the case United States ex rel. Chris Drennen v. Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc., 2009 Civ. 10179 (D. Mass.). The relator’s complaint, which was first filed under seal in February 2009, alleges that the Company seeks and receives reimbursement from government payors for serum ferritin and hepatitis B laboratory tests that are medically unnecessary or not properly ordered by a physician. FMCH has filed a motion to dismiss the complaint. On March 6, 2011, the United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts issued a Civil Investigative Demand seeking the production of documents related to the same laboratory tests that are the subject of the relator’s complaint. FMCH has cooperated fully in responding to the additional Civil Investigative Demand, and will vigorously contest the relator’s complaint.

 

On June 29, 2011, FMCH received a subpoena from the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York (“E.D.N.Y.”). On December 6, 2011, a single Company facility in New York received a subpoena from the OIG that was substantially similar to the one issued by the U.S. Attorney for the E.D.N.Y. These subpoenas are part of a criminal and civil investigation into relationships between retail pharmacies and outpatient dialysis facilities in the State of New York and into the reimbursement under government payor programs in New York for medications provided to patients with ESRD. Among the issues encompassed by the investigation is whether retail pharmacies may have provided or received compensation from the New York Medicaid program for pharmaceutical products that should be provided by the dialysis facilities in exchange for the New York Medicaid payment to the dialysis facilities. The Company has cooperated in the investigation.

 

Civil investigative demands were issued under the supervision of the United States Attorneys for Rhode Island and Connecticut to American Access Care LLC (AAC) and certain affiliated entities prior to the Company’s acquisition of AAC in October 2011. In March 2012, a third subpoena was issued under the supervision of the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida (Miami). The subpoenas cover a wide range of documents and activities of AAC, but appear to focus on coding and billing practices and procedures. The Company has assumed responsibility for responding to the subpoenas and is cooperating fully with the United States Attorneys.

 

On December 7, 2012, FMCNA [FMCH and subsidiaries] received a subpoena from the United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts requesting production of a range of documents relating to products manufactured by FMCNA. FMCNA intends to cooperate fully in this matter.

 

On December 12, 2012, a group of plaintiffs’ counsel filed a petition to form a federal multidistrict litigation in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts and thereby consolidate wrongful death lawsuits against the company’s North American subsidiary Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries (FMCNA). The complaints to be consolidated allege generally that inadequate labeling and warnings for FMCNA’s dialysate concentrate products NaturaLyte® and GranuFlo® caused harm to patients. The company believes that these lawsuits are without merit, and intends to defend them vigorously.

 

The Company has received communications alleging certain conduct in certain countries outside the U.S. and Germany that may violate the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) or other anti-

 

F-4



 

bribery laws. In response to the allegations, the Audit and Corporate Governance Committee of the Company’s Supervisory Board is conducting an internal review with the assistance of independent counsel retained for such purpose. The Company voluntarily advised the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice that allegations have been made and of the Company’s internal review. The Company has also directed its independent counsel, in conjunction with the Company’s Compliance Department, to review the Company’s internal controls related to compliance with international anti-bribery laws and identify any potential enhancements to such controls. The Company is fully committed to FCPA compliance. It cannot predict the outcome of its review.

 

The Company filed claims for refunds contesting the Internal Revenue Service’s (“IRS”) disallowance of FMCH’s civil settlement payment deductions taken by FMCH in prior year tax returns. As a result of a settlement agreement with the IRS, the Company received a partial refund in September 2008 of $37,000, inclusive of interest and preserved our right to pursue claims in the United States Courts for refunds of all other disallowed deductions, which totaled approximately $126,000. On December 22, 2008, the Company filed a complaint for complete refund in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, styled as Fresenius Medical Care Holdings, Inc. v. United States. On August 15, 2012, a jury entered a verdict for FMCH granting additional deductions of $95,000. The District Court is now considering the terms of the judgment to be entered against the United States to reflect the amount of the tax refund due to FMCH.

 

As a result of changes in the IV Iron market, the Company plans to renegotiate its 2008 license, distribution, manufacturing and supply agreement with Luitpold Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and American Regent, Inc. for Iron products sold under the Venofer brand. Such renegotiation may result in a charge of up to $65,000, after tax.

 

From time to time, the Company is a party to or may be threatened with other litigation or arbitration, claims or assessments arising in the ordinary course of its business. Management regularly analyzes current information including, as applicable, the Company’s defenses and insurance coverage and, as necessary, provides accruals for probable liabilities for the eventual disposition of these matters.

 

The Company, like other healthcare providers, conducts its operations under intense government regulation and scrutiny. It must comply with regulations which relate to or govern the safety and efficacy of medical products and supplies, the operation of manufacturing facilities, laboratories and dialysis clinics, and environmental and occupational health and safety. The Company must also comply with the laws of the United States, including the federal Anti-Kickback Statute, the federal False Claims Act, the federal Stark Law, and other federal and state fraud and abuse laws. Applicable laws or regulations may be amended, or enforcement agencies or courts may make interpretations that differ from the Company’s interpretations or the manner in which it conducts its business. Enforcement has become a high priority for the federal government and some states. In addition, the provisions of the False Claims Act authorizing payment of a portion of any recovery to the party bringing the suit encourage private plaintiffs to commence “qui tam” or “whistle blower” actions. In May 2009, the scope of the False Claims Act was expanded and additional protections for whistle blowers and procedural provisions to aid whistle blowers’ ability to proceed in a False Claims Act case were added. By virtue of this regulatory environment, the Company’s business activities and practices are subject to extensive review by regulatory authorities and private parties, and continuing audits, investigative demands, subpoenas, other inquiries, claims and litigation relating to the Company’s compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The Company may not always be aware that an inquiry or action has begun, particularly in the case of “whistle blower” actions, which are initially filed under court seal.

 

The Company operates many facilities throughout the United States and other parts of the world. In such a decentralized system, it is often difficult to maintain the desired level of oversight and control

over the thousands of individuals employed by many affiliated companies. The Company relies upon its management structure, regulatory and legal resources, and the effective operation of its compliance program to direct, manage and monitor the activities of these employees. On occasion, the Company may identify instances where employees or other agents deliberately, recklessly or inadvertently contravene the Company’s policies or violate applicable law. The actions of such persons may subject the Company and its subsidiaries to liability under the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Stark Law, the False Claims Act and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, among other laws and comparable laws of other countries.

 

Physicians, hospitals and other participants in the healthcare industry are also subject to a large number of lawsuits alleging professional negligence, malpractice, product liability, worker’s compensation or related claims, many of which involve large claims and significant defense costs. The Company has been and is currently subject to these suits due to the nature of its business and expects that those types of lawsuits may continue. Although the Company maintains insurance at a level which it believes to be prudent, it cannot assure that the coverage limits will be adequate or that insurance will cover all asserted claims. A successful claim against the Company or any of its subsidiaries in excess of insurance coverage could have a material adverse effect upon it and the results of its operations. Any claims, regardless of their merit or eventual outcome, could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s reputation and business.

 

The Company has also had claims asserted against it and has had lawsuits filed against it relating to alleged patent infringements or businesses that it has acquired or divested. These claims and suits relate both to operation of the businesses and to the acquisition and divestiture transactions. The Company has, when appropriate, asserted its own claims, and claims for indemnification. A successful claim against the Company or any of its subsidiaries could have a material adverse effect upon its business, financial condition, and the results of its operations. Any claims, regardless of their merit or eventual outcome, could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s reputation and business.

 

Accrued Special Charge for Legal Matters

 

At December 31, 2001, the Company recorded a pre-tax special charge of $258,159 to reflect anticipated expenses associated with the defense and resolution of pre-Merger tax claims, Merger-related claims, and commercial insurer claims. The costs associated with the Settlement Agreement and settlements with insurers have been charged against this accrual. With the exception of the proposed $115,000 payment under the Settlement Agreement in the Grace Chapter 11 Proceedings, all other matters included in the special charge have been resolved. While the Company believes that its remaining accrual reasonably estimates its currently anticipated costs related to the continued defense and resolution of this matter, no assurances can be given that its actual costs incurred will not exceed the amount of this accrual.
