Upon the making (or deemed making, in the case of the Swing Line Lender) of any Revolving Loans pursuant to this clause, the amount so funded shall become an outstanding Revolving Loan and shall no longer be owed as a Swing Line Loan. All interest payable with respect to any Revolving Loans made (or deemed made, in the case of the Swing Line Lender) pursuant to this clause shall be appropriately adjusted to reflect the period of time during which the Swing Line Lender had outstanding Swing Line Loans in respect of which such Revolving Loans were made. Each Revolving Loan Lender’s obligation to make the Revolving Loans referred to in this clause shall be absolute and unconditional and shall not be affected by any circumstance, including (i) any set-off, counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which such Lender may have against the Swing Line Lender, any Obligor or any Person for any reason whatsoever; (ii) the occurrence or continuance of any Default; (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of any Obligor; (iv) the acceleration or maturity of any Obligations or the termination of any Commitment after the making of any Swing Line Loan; (v) any breach of any Loan Document by any Person; or (vi) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing.

SECTION 2.4.2    By delivering a written notice to the Administrative Agent on or before 10:00 a.m. on the date that is three Business Days before the last day of the then current Interest Period, the Australian Borrower may continue any Australian Term Loan as a BBSY Rate Loan with the same Interest Period or choose a different Interest Period; provided that in the absence of prior notice as required above (which notice may be delivered telephonically followed by written confirmation within 24 hours thereafter), the Interest Period immediately succeeding the current Interest Period shall remain the same. The Australian Borrower may convert and continue Australian Revolving Loans that are BBSY Rate Loans and BKBM Rate Loans in accordance with the Australian Revolving Facility Agreement.
SECTION 2.5    Funding. Each Lender may, if it so elects, fulfill its obligation to make, continue or convert LIBO Rate Loans and, EURIBOR Rate Loans and BBSY Rate Loans hereunder by causing one of its foreign branches or Affiliates (or an international banking facility created by such Lender) to make or maintain such LIBO Rate Loan or, EURIBOR Rate Loans or BBSY Rate Loans ; provided that, such LIBO Rate Loan or, EURIBOR Rate Loan or BBSY Rate Loans shall nonetheless be deemed to have been made and to be held by such Lender, and the obligation of the applicable Borrower to repay such LIBO Rate Loan or, EURIBOR Rate Loan or BBSY Rate Loan shall nevertheless be to such Lender for the account of such foreign branch, Affiliate or international banking facility. Subject to Section 4.10, each Lender may, at its option, make any Loan available to the applicable Borrower by causing any foreign or domestic branch or Affiliate of such Lender to make such Loan; provided that any exercise of such option shall not affect the obligation of the applicable Borrower to repay Loans in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
SECTION 2.6    Issuance Procedures. By delivering to the Administrative Agent and the relevant Issuer an Issuance Request on or before 10:00 a.m. on a Business Day, the Parent Borrower may from time to time irrevocably request on not less than three nor more than ten Business Days’ notice, in the case of an initial issuance of a Letter of Credit and not less than three Business Days’ prior notice, in the case of a request for the extension of the Stated Expiry Date of a Standby Letter of Credit (in each case, unless a shorter notice period is agreed to by the relevant Issuer, in its sole discretion), that an Issuer issue a Letter of Credit, or extend the Stated Expiry Date of a Standby Letter of Credit, in such form as may be requested by the Parent Borrower and approved by such Issuer, solely for the purposes described in Section 7.1.7. In connection with any Issuance Request the Parent Borrower and/or applicable Subsidiary shall have executed and delivered such applications, agreements and other instruments relating to such Letter of Credit as such Issuer shall have reasonably requested consistent with its then current practices and procedures with respect to letters of credit of the same type, provided that in the event of any conflict between any such application, agreement or other instrument and the provisions of this Agreement, the provisions of this Agreement shall control. Each Standby Letter of Credit shall by its terms be stated to expire on a date (its “Stated Expiry Date”) no later than the earlier to occur of (i) five Business Days prior to the Revolving Loan Termination Date or (ii) unless otherwise agreed to by an Issuer, in its sole discretion, one year from the date of its issuance (provided that each Standby Letter of Credit may, with the consent of the Issuer thereof in its sole discretion, provide for automatic renewals for one year periods (which in no event shall extend beyond the Revolving Loan Termination Date)).

49


 

Each Issuer shall provide periodic reporting of Letters of Credit issued by such Issuer in a manner, and in time periods, mutually acceptable to the Administrative Agent and such Issuer. Unless notified by the Administrative Agent in writing prior to the issuance of a Letter of Credit, the applicable Issuer shall be entitled to assume that the conditions precedent to such issuance have been met.
SECTION 2.6.1    Other Lenders Participation.
(a)    Upon the issuance of each Letter of Credit, and without further action, each Revolving Loan Lender (other than the applicable Issuer) shall be deemed to have irrevocably purchased, to the extent of its Revolving Loan Percentage, a participation interest in such Letter of Credit (including the Contingent Liability and any Reimbursement Obligation with respect thereto), and such Revolving Loan Lender shall, to the extent of its Revolving Loan Percentage, be responsible for reimbursing the applicable Issuer for Reimbursement Obligations which have not been reimbursed by the Parent Borrower in accordance with Section 2.6.3 in the applicable currency and at the times set forth in such Section (with the terms of this Section surviving the termination of this Agreement). In addition, such Revolving Loan Lender shall, to the extent of its Revolving Loan Percentage, be entitled to receive a ratable portion of the Letter of Credit fees payable pursuant to Section 3.3.3 with respect to each Letter of Credit (other than the issuance fees payable to the Issuer of such Letter of Credit pursuant to the last sentence of Section 3.3.3) and of interest payable pursuant to Section 3.2 with respect to any Reimbursement Obligation accruing on and after the date (and to the extent) such Lender funds its participation interest in such Letter of Credit. To the extent that any Revolving Loan Lender has reimbursed any Issuer for a Disbursement, such Lender shall be entitled to receive its ratable portion of any amounts subsequently received (from the Parent Borrower or otherwise) in respect of such Disbursement. Upon any change in the Revolving Loan Commitments pursuant to an assignment under Section 10.10 of this Agreement, it is hereby agreed that with respect to all Letter of Credit Outstandings, there shall be an automatic adjustment to the participations hereby created to reflect the new Revolving Loan Percentage of the assigning and assignee Revolving Loan Lenders.
(b)    Upon the entry into each Open Account Discount Agreement, and without further action, each Revolving Loan Lender (other than the applicable Open Account Discount Purchaser) shall be deemed to have irrevocably purchased, to the extent of its Revolving Loan Percentage, a participation interest in such Open Account Discount Agreement, and such Revolving Loan Lender shall, to the extent of its Revolving Loan Percentage, be responsible for reimbursing the applicable Open Account Discount Purchaser for OA Payment Obligations under the applicable Open Account Paying Agreement which have not been reimbursed by the relevant Obligor in accordance with the terms thereof (with the terms of this Section surviving the termination of this Agreement). In addition, such Revolving Loan Lender shall, to the extent of its Revolving Loan Percentage, be entitled to receive a ratable portion of the Open Account Agreement payments pursuant to Section 3.3.4 and of interest payable pursuant to Section 3.2 with respect to any OA Payment Obligations accruing on and after the date (and to the extent) such Lender funds its participation interest in such OA Payment Obligations. To the extent that any Revolving Loan Lender has reimbursed any Open Account Discount Purchaser for an Open Account Discount Purchase, such Lender shall be entitled to receive its ratable portion of any amounts subsequently received (from the Parent Borrower or otherwise) in respect of such Open Account Discount Purchase. Upon any change in the Revolving Loan Commitments pursuant to an assignment under Section 10.10 of this Agreement, it is hereby agreed that with respect to all OA Payment Outstandings, there shall be an automatic adjustment to the participations hereby

50


 

created to reflect the new Revolving Loan Percentage of the assigning and assignee Revolving Loan Lenders. The Parent Borrower shall be required to reimburse each Open Account Discount Purchaser in accordance with the terms set forth in the applicable Open Account Paying Agreement.
SECTION 2.6.2    Disbursements. An Issuer will notify the Parent Borrower and the Administrative Agent promptly of the presentment for payment of any Letter of Credit issued by such Issuer, together with notice of the date (the “Disbursement Date”) such payment shall be made (each such payment, a “Disbursement”). Subject to the terms and provisions of such Letter of Credit and this Agreement, the applicable Issuer shall make such payment to the beneficiary (or its designee) of such Letter of Credit. Not later than 1:00 p.m. on (i) a Disbursement Date, if the Parent Borrower shall have received notice of such Disbursement prior to 10:00 a.m. on such Disbursement Date, or (ii) the Business Day immediately following a Disbursement Date, if such notice is received after 10:00 a.m. on such Disbursement Date, the Parent Borrower will reimburse such Issuer directly in full for such Disbursement. Each such reimbursement shall be made in immediately available funds together (in the case of a reimbursement made on such immediately following Business Day, with interest thereon at a rate per annum equal to the rate per annum then in effect for Base Rate Loans (with the then Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans accruing on such amount) pursuant to Section 3.2 for the period from the Disbursement Date through the date of such reimbursement, provided that if such reimbursement is not made when due pursuant to this Section 2.6.2, then the interest rates set forth in Section 3.2.2 shall apply. Without limiting in any way the foregoing and notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any separate application for any Letter of Credit, the Parent Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that it shall be obligated to reimburse the applicable Issuer upon each Disbursement of a Letter of Credit, and it shall be deemed to be the obligor for purposes of each such Letter of Credit issued hereunder (whether the account party on such Letter of Credit is the Parent Borrower or a Subsidiary). In the event that an Issuer makes any Disbursement and the Parent Borrower shall not have reimbursed such amount in full to such Issuer pursuant to this Section 2.6.2, such Issuer shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent which shall promptly notify each Revolving Loan Lender of such failure, and each Revolving Loan Lender (other than such Issuer) shall promptly and unconditionally pay in same day funds to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Issuer the amount of such Revolving Loan Lender’s Revolving Loan Percentage of such unreimbursed Disbursement. If an Issuer so notifies the Administrative Agent, and the Administrative Agent so notifies the Revolving Loan Lenders prior to 2:00 p.m., on any Business Day, each such Revolving Loan Lender shall make available to such Issuer such Revolving Loan Lender’s Revolving Loan Percentage of the amount of such payment on such Business Day in same day funds (or if such notice is received by such Revolving Loan Lenders after 2:00 p.m. on the day of receipt, payment shall be made on the immediately following Business Day). If and to the extent such Revolving Loan Lender shall not have so made its Revolving Loan Percentage of the amount of such payment available to the applicable Issuer, such Revolving Loan Lender agrees to pay to such Issuer forthwith on demand such amount, together with interest thereon, for each day from such date until the date such amount is paid to the Administrative Agent for the account of such Issuer, at the Federal Funds Rate.
SECTION 2.6.3    Reimbursement. The obligation (a “Reimbursement Obligation”) of the Parent Borrower under Section 2.6.2 to reimburse an Issuer with respect to each Disbursement (including interest thereon) and, upon the failure of the Parent Borrower to reimburse an Issuer, each Revolving Loan Lender’s obligation under Section 2.6.1 to reimburse an Issuer, shall be absolute and unconditional under any and all circumstances and irrespective of (i) any setoff, counterclaim or defense to payment which the Parent Borrower or such Revolving Loan Lender, as the case may be, may have or have had against such Issuer, any Lender or any other Person (including any Subsidiary) for any reason whatsoever,

51


 

including any defense based upon the failure of any Disbursement to conform to the terms of the applicable Letter of Credit (if, in such Issuer’s good faith opinion (absent such Issuer’s gross negligence or willful misconduct), such Disbursement is determined to be appropriate) or any non-application or misapplication by the beneficiary of the proceeds of such Letter of Credit; (ii) the occurrence or continuance of any Default; (iii) any adverse change in the condition (financial or otherwise) of any Obligor; (iv) the acceleration or maturity of any Obligations or the termination of any Commitment after the issuance of a Letter of Credit; (v) any breach of any Loan Document by any Person; or (vi) any other circumstance, happening or event whatsoever, whether or not similar to any of the foregoing (including any of the events set forth in Section 2.6.5); provided that, after paying in full its Reimbursement Obligation hereunder, nothing herein shall adversely affect the right of the Parent Borrower or such Lender, as the case may be, to commence any proceeding against an Issuer for any wrongful Disbursement made by such Issuer under a Letter of Credit as a result of acts or omissions constituting gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct on the part of such Issuer.
SECTION 2.6.4    Deemed Disbursements. Upon the occurrence and during the continuation of any Event of Default under Section 8.1.9 or upon notification by the Administrative Agent (acting at the direction of the Required Lenders) to the Parent Borrower of its obligations under this Section, following the occurrence and during the continuation of any other Event of Default,
(a)    the aggregate Stated Amount of all Letters of Credit shall, without demand upon or notice to the Parent Borrower or any other Person, be deemed to have been paid or disbursed by the Issuers of such Letters of Credit (notwithstanding that such amount may not in fact have been paid or disbursed); and
(b)    the Parent Borrower shall be immediately obligated to reimburse the Issuers for the amount deemed to have been so paid or disbursed by such Issuers.
Amounts payable by the Parent Borrower pursuant to this Section shall be deposited in immediately available funds with the Collateral Agent and held as cash collateral security for the Reimbursement Obligations. When all Defaults giving rise to the deemed disbursements under this Section have been cured or waived the Collateral Agent shall return to the Parent Borrower all amounts then on deposit with the Collateral Agent pursuant to this Section which have not been applied to the satisfaction of the Reimbursement Obligations.
SECTION 2.6.5    Nature of Reimbursement Obligations. The Parent Borrower, each other Obligor and, to the extent set forth in Section 2.6.1, each Revolving Loan Lender shall assume all risks of the acts, omissions or misuse of any Letter of Credit by the beneficiary thereof. No Issuer (except to the extent of its own gross negligence, bad faith or willful misconduct) shall be responsible for:
(a)    the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any Letter of Credit or any document submitted by any party in connection with the application for and issuance of a Letter of Credit, even if it should in fact prove to be in any or all respects invalid, insufficient, inaccurate, fraudulent or forged;
(b)    the form, validity, sufficiency, accuracy, genuineness or legal effect of any instrument transferring or assigning or purporting to transfer or assign a Letter of Credit or the rights or benefits thereunder or the proceeds thereof in whole or in part, which may prove to be invalid or ineffective for any reason;

52


 

(c)    failure of the beneficiary to comply fully with conditions required in order to demand payment under a Letter of Credit;
(d)    errors, omissions, interruptions or delays in transmission or delivery of any messages, by mail, cable, telegraph, telex or otherwise or errors in interpretation of technical terms or any consequence arising from causes beyond the control of such Issuer; or
(e)    any loss or delay in the transmission or otherwise of any document or draft required in order to make a Disbursement under a Letter of Credit.
In furtherance of the foregoing and without limiting the generality thereof, the parties agree that with respect to documents presented which appear on their face to be in substantial compliance with the terms of a Letter of Credit, an Issuer may, in its sole discretion, either accept and make payment upon such documents without responsibility for further investigation or refuse to accept and make payment upon such documents if such documents are not in strict compliance with the terms of such Letter of Credit. None of the foregoing shall affect, impair or prevent the vesting of any of the rights or powers granted to any Issuer or any Revolving Loan Lender hereunder. In furtherance and not in limitation or derogation of any of the foregoing, any action taken or omitted to be taken by an Issuer in good faith (and not constituting gross negligence or willful misconduct) shall be binding upon each Obligor and each such Secured Party, and shall not put such Issuer under any resulting liability to any Obligor or any Secured Party, as the case may be.
SECTION 2.6.6    Existing Letters of Credit. On the Closing Date, all Existing Letters of Credit shall be deemed to have been issued hereunder and shall for all purposes be deemed to be “Letters of Credit” hereunder.
SECTION 2.7    Register; Notes. The Register shall be maintained on the following terms.
(a)    The Parent Borrower hereby designates the Administrative Agent to serve as the Parent Borrower’s agent, solely for the purpose of this clause, to maintain a register (the “Register”) on which the Administrative Agent will record each Lender’s Commitment, the Loans made by each Lender and each repayment in respect of the principal amount of the Loans, annexed to which the Administrative Agent shall retain a copy of each Lender Assignment Agreement delivered to the Administrative Agent pursuant to Section 10.11. Failure to make any recordation, or any error in such recordation, shall not affect any Obligor’s Obligations. The entries in the Register shall constitute prima facie evidence and shall be binding, in the absence of manifest error, and the Borrowers, the Administrative Agent and the Lenders shall treat each Person in whose name a Loan is registered (or, if applicable, to which a Note has been issued) as the owner thereof for the purposes of all Loan Documents, notwithstanding notice or any provision herein to the contrary. Any assignment or transfer of a Commitment or the Loans made pursuant hereto shall be registered in the Register only upon delivery to the Administrative Agent of a Lender Assignment Agreement that has been executed by the requisite parties pursuant to Section 10.11. No assignment or transfer of a Lender’s Commitment or Loans shall be effective unless such assignment or transfer shall have been recorded in the Register by the Administrative Agent as provided in this Section.
(b)    The Borrowers agree that, upon the request to the Administrative Agent by any Lender, the Borrowers will execute and deliver to such Lender a Note evidencing the Loans made by, and payable to the order of, such Lender in a maximum principal amount equal to such Lender’s Percentage of the original applicable Commitment Amount. The Borrowers hereby irrevocably authorizes each Lender to

53


 

make (or cause to be made) appropriate notations on the grid attached to such Lender’s Note (or on any continuation of such grid), which notations, if made, shall evidence, inter alia, the date of, the outstanding principal amount of, and the interest rate and Interest Period applicable to the Loans evidenced thereby. Such notations shall, to the extent not inconsistent with notations made by the Administrative Agent in the Register, constitute prima facie evidence and shall be binding on each Obligor absent manifest error; provided that, the failure of any Lender to make any such notations shall not limit or otherwise affect any Obligations of any Obligor.
SECTION 2.8    Extensions of Term Loans. (a) The Parent Borrower (with respect to the New Term A Loans and New Term B Loans) and, the Lux Borrower (with respect to the Euro Term Loans) and the Australian Borrower (with respect to the Australian Term Loans) may at any time and from time to time request that all or a portion of a Term Loan Class (an “Existing Class”) be converted to extend the scheduled maturity date(s) of any payment of principal with respect to all or a portion of any principal amount of such Term Loan Class (any such Term Loans which have been so converted, “Extended Term Loans”) and to provide for other terms consistent with this Section 2.8. In order to establish any Extended Term Loans, the applicable Borrower shall provide a notice to the Administrative Agent (who shall provide a copy of such notice to each of the Lenders of the applicable Existing Class) (an “Extension Request”) setting forth the proposed terms of the Extended Term Loans to be established, on such terms as the applicable Borrower and the Lenders providing such Extended Term Loans shall agree except (x) the scheduled final maturity date shall be extended and all or any of the scheduled amortization payments of principal of any class of Extended Term Loans may be delayed to later dates than the scheduled amortization of principal of the Existing Class of Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or, New Term B Loans, Australian Term A-1 Loans or Australian Term A-2 Loans from which they were converted (with any such delay resulting in a corresponding adjustment to the scheduled amortization payments reflected in Section 3.1.1, as the case may be, with respect to the Existing Class from which such Extended Term Loans were converted, in each case as more particularly set forth in Section 2.8(c) below) and (y) (A) the interest margins with respect to any class of Extended Term Loans may be higher or lower than the interest margins for the Existing Class of Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or, New Term B Loans, Australian Term A-1 Loans or Australian Term A-2 Loans from which they were converted and/or (B) additional fees may be payable to the Lenders providing such Extended Term Loans in addition to or in lieu of any increased margins contemplated by the preceding clause (A), in each case, to the extent provided in the applicable Extension Amendment. No Lender shall have any obligation to agree to have any of its Term Loans of any Existing Class converted into Extended Term Loans pursuant to any Extension Request. Any Extended Term Loans of any Extension Series shall constitute a separate Class of Term Loans from the Existing Class from which they were converted.
(b)    The applicable Borrower shall provide the applicable Extension Request at least ten Business Days (or such shorter period as the Administrative Agent may agree in its sole discretion) prior to the date on which Lenders under the applicable Existing Class or Existing Classes are requested to respond. Any Lender (an “Extending Lender”) wishing to have all or a portion of its Existing Class or Existing Classes of Term Loans subject to such Extension Request converted into Extended Term Loans shall notify the Administrative Agent (an “Extension Election”) on or prior to the date specified in such Extension Request of the amount of the Existing Class or Existing Classes of Term Loans subject to such Extension Request that it has elected to convert into Extended Term Loans. In the event that the aggregate amount of the

54


 

Existing Class or Existing Classes subject to Extension Elections exceeds the amount of Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or, New Term B Loans, Australian Term A-1 Loans or Australian Term A-2 Loans, as applicable, requested to become Extended Term Loans pursuant to the Extension Request, such Existing Class or Existing Classes shall be converted to Extended Term Loans on a pro rata basis across Extending Lenders based on the amount of such Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or, New Term B Loans, Australian Term A-1 Loans or Australian Term A-2 Loans included in each such Extension Election.
(c)    Extended Term Loans shall be established pursuant to an amendment (an “Extension Amendment”) to this Agreement (which, except to the extent expressly contemplated by the penultimate sentence of this Section 2.8(c) and notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 10.1, shall not require the consent of any Lender other than the Extending Lenders with respect to the Extended Term Loans established thereby) executed by the applicable Obligors of such Extended Term Loans, the Administrative Agent and the applicable Extending Lenders. No Extension Amendment shall provide for any tranche of Extended Term Loans in an aggregate principal amount that is less than $25,000,000. In addition to any terms and changes required or permitted by Section 2.8(a), each Extension Amendment shall amend the scheduled amortization payments pursuant to Section 3.1.1 with respect to the Existing Class from which the Extended Term Loans were converted to reduce each scheduled principal repayment amounts for such Existing Class in the same proportion as the amount of the Existing Class that is to be converted pursuant to such Extension Amendment (it being understood that the amount of any principal repayment amount payable with respect to any individual Term Loan of such Existing Class that is not an Extended Term Loan shall not be reduced as a result thereof). In connection with any Extension Amendment, Lux Borrower (in the case of an extension of Euro Term Loans) and, the Parent Borrower (in the case of an extension of New Term A Loans or New Term B Loans) or the Australian Borrower (in the case of an extension of Australian Term A-1 Loans or Australian Term A-2 Loans) shall deliver (or cause to be delivered) an opinion of counsel reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent, if reasonably requested by the Administrative Agent.
(d)    Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, on any date on which any Existing Class is converted to extend the related scheduled maturity date(s) in accordance with Section 2.8(a) (an “Extension Date”), the aggregate principal amount of existing Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or, New Term B Loans, Australian Term A-1 Loans or Australian Term A-2 Loans, as applicable, of each Extending Lender shall be deemed reduced by an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or, New Term B Loans, Australian Term A-1 Loans or Australian Term A-2 Loans, as applicable, that are so converted to Extended Term Loans by such Lender on such date.
(e)    This Section 2.8 shall supersede any provisions in Section 10.1 to the contrary.
SECTION 2.9    Incremental Facilities. (a) At any time or from time to time after the Closing Date, the Parent Borrower, by written notice to Administrative Agent, may request (x) the establishment of one or more additional tranches of “Australian Dollar term loans” (“Incremental A$ Term Loans”), “euro term loans” (“Incremental Euro Term Loans”), “term A loans” denominated in Dollars (“Incremental New Term A Loans”), “term B loans” denominated in Dollars (“Incremental New Term B Loans”) or increases in the amount of any existing term loan tranches (any such increases, together with the Incremental A$ Term Loans, Incremental Euro Term Loans, Incremental New Term A Loans and the Incremental

55


 

New Term B Loans, the “Incremental Term Loans”) and/or (y) the establishment of up to A$75,000,000 of “Australian Dollar revolving facilities” (which may take the form of bi-lateral or swing-line facilities) (“Incremental A$ Revolving Commitments”) and/or increases in the Revolving Loan Commitments (“Incremental RCF Commitments and, together with the Incremental A$ Revolving Commitments, the “Incremental Revolving Commitments” and, the Incremental Revolving Commitments, together with the Incremental Term Loans, the “Incremental Credit Increases”); provided that each Incremental Credit Increase shall be in an aggregate principal amount that is not less than $50,000,000 except as the Administrative Agent may agree in its reasonable discretion. Each such notice shall specify the date (each, an “Increased Amount Date”) on which the Parent Borrower proposes that the Incremental Credit Increases shall be effective, which shall be a date not less than 10 Business Days after the date on which such notice is delivered to the Administrative Agent. The Parent Borrower may approach any Lender or any Person (other than an Ineligible Assignee) to provide all or a portion of the Incremental Credit Increases; provided that (i) no Lender will be required to provide such Incremental Credit Increase and (ii) any entity providing all or a portion of the Incremental Credit Increase that is not a Lender, an Affiliate of a Lender or an Approved Fund shall not be an Ineligible Assignee and shall be reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent (with such acceptance by the Administrative Agent to not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). It is understood and agreed that the Parent Borrower may request such Incremental Credit Increases (other than Incremental RCF Commitments) on behalf of its wholly-owned Subsidiaries, and any such Subsidiary that is a borrower of Incremental A$ Term Loans or Incremental A$ Revolving Commitments is an “Australian Borrower” hereunder.
(b)    In each case, such Incremental Credit Increase shall become effective as of the applicable Increased Amount Date, provided that (i) no Default or Event of Default shall exist on such Increased Amount Date before or after giving effect to such Incremental Credit Increase, (ii) the Parent Borrower shall be in compliance with Section 7.2.4 both before and after giving effect to such Incremental Credit Increases, (iii) the Senior Secured Leverage Ratio shall be less than 3.00 to 1.00 both before and after giving effect to such Incremental Credit Increases (assuming, for the purposes of the calculations under this clause (iii), that the Revolving Loan Commitments and any Incremental A$ Revolving Commitments are 50% drawn and that any Permitted Securitization is 50% utilized), (iv) any Incremental Term Loans shall mature on or after the Revolving Loan Termination Date; provided that up to A$300,000,000 of Incremental A$ Term Loans may have a final maturity date prior to the Revolving Loan Termination Date, (v) any Incremental Euro Term Loans shall mature on or after the Euro Term Loan Maturity Date and shall have a weighted average life no shorter than the then remaining weighted average life of the Euro Term Loans, (vi) any Incremental New Term A Loans shall mature on or after the New Term A Loan Maturity Date and shall have a weighted average life no shorter than the then remaining weighted average life of the New Term A Loans, (vii) any Incremental New Term B Loans shall mature on or after the New Term B Loan Maturity Date and shall have a weighted average life no shorter than the remaining weighted average life of the New Term B Loans, (viii) with respect to any Incremental A$ Term Loans, the requirements of the “public offer” test in Section 128 of the Australian Tax Act have been satisfied in relation to interest payable on such Incremental A$ Term Loans, (ix) with respect to any Incremental New Term A Loans or Incremental New Term B Loans incurred on a pari passu basis within 18 months after the Closing Date, the interest rate margin in respect of such Incremental Term Loans (including upfront fees in connection therewith in excess of any upfront fees issued or paid in respect of any then outstanding New Term A Loans or New Term B Loans, as applicable, but excluding arrangement, structuring and underwriting

fees) shall not exceed the Applicable Margin for the New Term A Loans or New Term B Loans, as applicable, by more than 50 basis points or if it does so exceed either such Applicable Margin by more than 50 basis points, the Applicable Margin so exceeded shall be increased so that the interest rate margin in respect of such Incremental Term Loan (giving effect to any upfront fees in connection therewith in excess of any upfront fees issued or paid in respect of any then outstanding Loans, but excluding arrangement, structuring and underwriting fees) is no greater than the Applicable Margin for such New Term A Loans or New Term B Loans, as applicable, minus 50 basis points and (x) the Incremental Credit Increases shall be effected pursuant to one or more joinder agreements (or such other form) in a form reasonably acceptable to the Administrative Agent (each, a “Joinder Agreement”) executed and delivered by the applicable Borrower, the applicable Incremental Lender and the Administrative Agent pursuant to which such Incremental Lender agrees to be bound to the terms of this Agreement as a Lender; provided, further, that the Lenders committing to provide such Incremental Term Loans the proceeds of which are to be used to finance a Permitted Acquisition may agree to waive the conditions set forth in the foregoing clauses (i), (ii) and (iii) without the consent of any other Lenders. Any Incremental Term Loans made on an Increased Amount Date shall be designated a separate tranche of Incremental Term Loans for all purposes of this Agreement.

(c)    On any Increased Amount Date on which Incremental RCF Commitments (other than Incremental A$ Revolving Commitments) are effected, subject to the satisfaction of the foregoing terms and conditions, (a) each of the Lenders with Revolving Loan Commitments shall assign to each Person with an Incremental Revolving Commitment (each, a “Incremental Revolving Lender”) and each of the Incremental Revolving Lenders shall purchase from each of the Lenders with Revolving Loan Commitments, at the principal amount thereof, such interests in the Revolving Loans outstanding on such Increased Amount Date as shall be necessary in order that, after giving effect to all such assignments and purchases, the Revolving Loans will be held by existing Revolving Loan Lenders and Incremental Revolving Lenders ratably in accordance with their Revolving Loan Commitments after giving effect to the addition of such Incremental Revolving Commitments to the Revolving Loan Commitments, (b) the participations held by the Revolving Loan Lenders in the Revolving Exposure immediately prior to such Increased Amount Date shall be automatically reallocated so as to held by existing Revolving Loan Lenders and Incremental Revolving Lenders ratably in accordance with their Revolving Loan Commitments after giving effect to the addition of such Incremental Revolving Commitments to the Revolving Loan Commitments, (c) each Incremental Revolving Commitment shall be deemed for all purposes a Revolving Loan Commitment and each Loan made thereunder (an “Incremental Revolving Loan”) shall be deemed, for all purposes, a Revolving Loan and (d) each Incremental Revolving Lender shall become a Lender with respect to the Incremental Revolving Commitment and all matters relating thereto. The terms and provisions of the Incremental Revolving Loans and Incremental Revolving Commitments (other than Incremental A$ Revolving Commitments) shall be identical to the Revolving Loans and the Revolving Loan Commitments.

57


 

commitment amount and (ii) each Incremental Term Loan Lender shall become a Lender hereunder with respect to the Incremental Term Loans made pursuant thereto.

Amounts deposited in such cash collateral account shall be invested in Cash Equivalent Investments, as directed by the Parent Borrower. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, to the extent that the Parent Borrower has determined in good faith that the repatriation to the United States of any or all of the Net Disposition Proceeds of any Disposition by a Foreign Subsidiary or the Net Casualty Proceeds of any Casualty Event incurred by a Foreign Subsidiary could reasonably be expected to have adverse tax cost consequences on the Parent Borrower or its Subsidiaries, an amount equal to such Net Disposition Proceeds or Net Casualty Proceeds that would be so

60


 

affected will not be subject to repayment under this Section 3.1.1(g). For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 3.1.1(g) shall require the Parent Borrower to cause any amounts to be repatriated to the United States (whether or not such amounts are used in or excluded from the determination of the amount of any mandatory prepayments hereunder).
(h)    To the extent any Term B Loans are outstanding, within 100 days after the close of each Fiscal Year (beginning with the Fiscal Year ending on or about December 31, 2016) the Parent Borrower (with respect to the New Term B Loans) and the Lux Borrower (with respect to the Euro Term Loans) shall make a mandatory prepayment of the Euro Term Loans and the New Term B Loans, as applicable, in an amount equal to (i) the product of (A) the Excess Cash Flow (if any) for such Fiscal Year multiplied by (B) the Applicable Percentage minus (ii) the aggregate amount of all voluntary prepayments of Loans (but including Revolving Loans and Swing Line Loans only to the extent of a corresponding reduction of the Revolving Loan Commitment Amount pursuant to Section 2.2.1) made during such Fiscal Year or, at the option of the Parent Borrower, after year-end and prior to when such Excess Cash Flow prepayment is due, to be applied as set forth in Section 3.1.2. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (i) to the extent that Parent Borrower has determined in good faith that the repatriation to the United States of any Excess Cash Flow attributable to Foreign Subsidiaries (“Foreign Subsidiary Excess Cash Flow”) would have adverse tax cost consequences on the Parent Borrower or its Subsidiaries, an amount equal to such Foreign Subsidiary Excess Cash Flow that would be so affected will not be subject to repayment under this Section 3.1.1(h). For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Section 3.1.1(h) shall require the Parent Borrower to cause any amounts to be repatriated to the United States (whether or not such amounts are used in or excluded from the determination of the amount of any mandatory prepayments hereunder).
(i)    To the extent any Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or New Term B Loans are outstanding, concurrently with the receipt by the Parent Borrower or any of its Restricted Subsidiaries of any Net Debt Proceeds, the Parent Borrower (with respect to the New Term Loans) and the Lux Borrower (with respect to the Euro Term Loans) shall make a mandatory prepayment of the Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or New Term B Loans, as applicable, in an amount equal to 100% of such Net Debt Proceeds, to be applied as set forth in Section 3.1.2.
(j)    Immediately upon any acceleration of the Stated Maturity Date of any Loans pursuant to Section 8.2 or Section 8.3, the Borrowers shall repay all the Loans, unless, pursuant to Section 8.3, only a portion of all the Loans is so accelerated (in which case the portion so accelerated shall be so repaid).
Amounts prepaid on account of the Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans or New Term B Loans may not be reborrowed. Each prepayment of any Loans made pursuant to this Section shall be without premium or penalty, except as may be required by Section 4.4.
SECTION 3.1.2    Application. Amounts prepaid pursuant to Section 3.1.1 shall be applied as set forth in this Section.
(a)    Subject to clause (b), each prepayment or repayment of the principal of the Loans shall be applied, to the extent of such prepayment or repayment, first, to the principal amount thereof being maintained as Base Rate Loans, and second, subject to the terms of Section 4.4, to the principal amount thereof being maintained as LIBO Rate Loans or, EURIBOR Rate Loans or BBSY Rate Loans, as applicable.

61


 

(b)    Each prepayment of the Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans and New Term B Loans, as applicable, made pursuant to clauses (g), (h) and (i) of Section 3.1.1 shall be applied first, pro rata to a mandatory prepayment of the outstanding principal amount of all Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans (other than prepayments made pursuant to Section 3.1.1(h)) and New Term B Loans (with the amount of such prepayment being applied (A) first to the remaining Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans (other than in connection with prepayments made pursuant to Section 3.1.1(h)) and New Term B Loans, to reduce in direct order of maturity the amortization payments that are due and payable within 24 calendar months from the date of such prepayment, and (B) second, to the extent in excess of the amounts to be applied pursuant to the preceding clause (A), to reduce the then remaining Euro Term Loan, New Term A Loan (other than prepayments made pursuant to Section 3.1.1(h)) and New Term B Loan amortization payments on a pro rata basis).
(c)    So long as the Administrative Agent has received prior written notice from the applicable Borrower of a mandatory prepayment pursuant to clauses (g), (h) and (i) of Section 3.1.1, the Administrative Agent shall provide notice of such mandatory prepayment to the Lenders with Euro Term Loans, New Term A Loans (other than prepayments made pursuant to Section 3.1.1(h)) and New Term B Loans. It is understood and agreed by the Lux Borrower that, notwithstanding receipt by the Administrative Agent of any such mandatory prepayment, the Euro Term Loans shall not be deemed repaid, unless otherwise consented to by the Administrative Agent, until five Business Days have elapsed from the delivery to the Administrative Agent of the notice described above in this clause (c).
SECTION 3.2    Interest Provisions. Interest on the outstanding principal amount of the Loans shall accrue and be payable in accordance with the terms set forth below.

(a)    on that portion maintained from time to time as a Base Rate Loan, equal to the sum of the Alternate Base Rate from time to time in effect plus the Applicable Margin; provided that, Swing Line Loans shall always accrue interest at the Alternate Base Rate plus the then effective Applicable Margin for Revolving Loans maintained as Base Rate Loans;
(b)    on that portion maintained as a LIBO Rate Loan, during each Interest Period applicable thereto, equal to the sum of the LIBO Rate (Reserve Adjusted) plus the Applicable Margin; and
(c)    on that portion maintained as a EURIBOR Rate Loan, during each Interest Period applicable thereto, equal to the sum of the EURIBOR Rate plus the Applicable Margin.; and

SECTION 3.2.2    Post-Default Rates. If all or any portion of the Obligations shall not be paid when due (whether at the Stated Maturity, by acceleration or otherwise), the applicable Borrower shall

62


 

pay, but only to the extent permitted by law, interest (after as well as before judgment) on all such unpaid Obligations at a rate per annum equal to (a) in the case of principal on any Loan, the rate of interest that otherwise would be applicable to such Loan plus 2% per annum; and (b) in the case of overdue interest, fees, and other monetary Obligations, (i) with respect to the Euro Term Loans, the Euro Base Rate from time to time in effect, plus the Applicable Margin for the Euro Term Loans, plus 2% per annum and, (ii) with respect to the New Term Loans, the LIBO Rate from time to time in effect, plus the Applicable Margin for any LIBO Rate Loan, accruing interest at the Euro Base Rate, plus 2% per annum., (iii) with respect to the Australian Term Loans, the BBSY Rate from time to time in effect, plus the Applicable Margin for that BBSY Rate Loan, plus 2% per annum and (iv) with respect to the Australian Revolving Loans, as set forth in the Australian Revolving Facility Agreement.

(a)    on the Stated Maturity Date therefor;

ARTICLE IV
CERTAIN LIBO RATE, EURIBOR RATE AND OTHER PROVISIONS
SECTION 4.1    LIBO Rate or, EURIBOR Rate or BBSY Rate Lending Unlawful. If any Lender shall determine (which determination shall, upon notice thereof to the Parent Borrower and the Administrative Agent, constitute prima facie evidence thereof and shall be binding on the Parent Borrower absent manifest error) that the introduction of or any change in or in the interpretation of any law makes it unlawful, or any Governmental Authority asserts that it is unlawful, for such Lender to make or continue any Loan as, or to convert any Loan into, a LIBO Rate Loan or, a EURIBOR Rate Loan or a BBSY Rate Loan, the obligations of such Lender to make, continue or convert any such LIBO Rate Loan or, EURIBOR Rate Loan or BBSY Rate Loan shall, upon such determination, forthwith be suspended until such Lender shall notify the Administrative Agent that the circumstances

64


 

causing such suspension no longer exist, and (a) all outstanding LIBO Rate Loans payable to such Lender shall automatically convert into Base Rate Loans at the end of the then current Interest Periods with respect thereto or sooner, if required by such law or assertion and, (b) all outstanding EURIBOR Rate Loans payable to such Lender shall automatically convert into Euro Base Rate Loans at the end of the then current Interest Periods with respect thereto or sooner, if required by such law or assertion. and (c) all outstanding BBSY Rate Loans payable to such Lender shall automatically convert into Australian Base Rate Loans at the end of the then current Interest Periods with respect thereto or sooner, if required by such law or assertion.
SECTION 4.2    Deposits Unavailable; Inability to Determine Interest Rates. (a) If at the time that the Administrative Agent shall seek to determine the Screen Rate on the Quotation Day for any Interest Period for a LIBO Rate Loan or, a EURIBOR Rate Loan or a BBSY Rate Loan, the Screen Rate shall not be available for such Interest Period for any reason and the Administrative Agent shall determine that it is not possible to determine the Interpolated Rate (which conclusion shall be conclusive and binding absent manifest error), then the Reference Bank Rate shall be the LIBO Rate or, EURIBOR Rate or BBSY Rate for such Interest Period for such LIBO Rate Loan or, EURIBOR Rate LoansLoan or BBSY Rate Loan, as applicable; provided that if any Reference Bank Rate shall be less than zero, such rate shall be deemed to be zero for purposes of this Agreement; provided, further, that if, as of the Specified Time on the Quotation Day for such Interest Period, less(i) in respect of BBSY Rate Loans, the Reference Bank Rate is not available, Section 4.2(c) shall apply, and (ii) in respect of LIBO Rate Loans or EURIBOR Rate Loans, fewer than two Reference Banks shall have supplied a Submitted Reference Bank Rate to the Administrative Agent for purposes of determining the LIBO Rate or, the EURIBOR Rate or the BBSY Rate for such LIBO Rate Loan or, EURIBOR Rate Loan or BBSY Rate Loan, as applicable, the Administrative Agent shall be deemed to have determined that adequate and reasonable means do not exist for ascertaining the LIBO Rate or EURIBOR Rate for such LIBO Rate Loan or EURIBOR Rate Loan, as applicable, and Section 4.2(b)(ii) shall apply.
(b)    If the Administrative Agent shall have determined that
(i)    Dollar deposits in the relevant amount and for the relevant Interest Period are not available to it in its relevant market; or
(ii)    by reason of circumstances affecting it’s relevant market, adequate means do not exist for ascertaining the interest rate applicable hereunder to LIBO Rate Loans or EURIBOR Rate Loans; or
(iii)    in respect of BBSY Rate Loans, if before 5 p.m. on the Business Day after the Quotation Day for the relevant Interest Period, two or more Lenders whose participations exceed 40% of that BBSY Rate Loan (or where there is only one Lender, that Lender) notify the Administrative Agent that the cost to it of funding its participation in a BBSY Rate Loan (from the wholesale market for Australian Dollars) would be in excess of BBSY Rate (in which case an “Affected Lender” will be a Lender which gives such a notification);
then, (x) if Section 4(b)(i) or (ii) applies, upon notice from the Administrative Agent to the Borrowers and the Lenders, the obligations of all Lenders under Section 2.3 and Section 2.4 to make or continue any

65


 

Loans as, or to convert any Loans into, LIBO Rate Loans or EURIBOR Rate Loans shall forthwith be suspended until the Administrative Agent shall notify the Borrowers and the Lenders that the circumstances causing such suspension no longer exist, and (y) if Section 4(b)(iii) applies, Section 4.2(c) shall apply to the participation in the BBSY Rate Loan of each Affected Lender for the relevant Interest Period.
(c)    If this Section 4.2(c) applies, the rate of interest on each relevant Lender’s share of the relevant BBSY Rate Loan for the relevant Interest Period shall be the percentage rate per annum which is the sum of Applicable Margin and the rate of interest notified to the Administrative Agent by the Lender to be that which expresses as a percentage rate per annum, the cost to the Lender of funding its participation in that BBSY Rate Loan from whatever source it may reasonably select (to be notified as soon as practicable and in any event within 3 Business Days of the first day of that Interest Period). If this Section 4.2(c) applies and the Administrative Agent or the Australian Borrower so requires, the Administrative Agent and the Australian Borrower shall enter into negotiations (for a period of not more than 30 days) with a view to agreeing a substitute basis for determining the rate of interest, and any such alternative basis agreed shall, with the prior consent of all the Lenders and the Australian Borrower, be binding on all Parties.
SECTION 4.3    Increased LIBO Rate or, EURIBOR Rate Loan or BBSY Rate Loan Costs, etc. Each Borrower agrees to reimburse each Lender and each Issuer for any increase in the cost to such Lender or Issuer of, or any reduction in the amount of any sum receivable by such Secured Party in respect of, such Secured Party’s Commitments and the making of Credit Extensions hereunder (including the making, continuing or maintaining (or of its obligation to make or continue) any Loans as, or of converting (or of its obligation to convert) any Loans into, LIBO Rate Loans or, EURIBOR Rate Loans or BBSY Rate Loans) that arise in connection with any change in, or the introduction, adoption, effectiveness, interpretation, reinterpretation or phase‑in after the Closing Date (or, for a Lender who becomes a party to this Agreement after the Closing Date and is participating in a BBSY Rate Loan, to the extent the relevant event affects that BBSY Rate Loan, after the date that Lender becomes a party to this Agreement) of, any law or regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority, except for such changes with respect to increased capital costs and Taxes which are governed by Sections 4.5 and 4.6, respectively. Each affected Secured Party shall promptly notify the Administrative Agent and the applicable Borrower in writing of the occurrence of any such event, stating the reasons therefor and the additional amount required fully to compensate such Secured Party for such increased cost or reduced amount. Such additional amounts shall be payable by the applicable Borrower directly to such Secured Party within five Business Days of its receipt of such notice, and such notice shall, in the absence of manifest error, constitute prima facie evidence thereof and shall be binding on such Borrower.
SECTION 4.4    Funding Losses. In the event any Lender shall incur any actual loss or expense (including any actual loss or expense incurred by reason of the liquidation or reemployment of deposits or other funds acquired by such Lender (if any) to make or continue any portion of the principal amount of any Loan as, or to convert any portion of the principal amount of any Loan into, a LIBO Rate Loan or, a EURIBOR Rate Loan or a BBSY Rate Loan) as a result of

66


 

(a)    any conversion or repayment or prepayment of the principal amount of any LIBO Rate Loan or, EURIBOR Rate Loan or BBSY Rate Loan on a date other than the scheduled last day of the Interest Period applicable thereto, whether pursuant to Article III or otherwise;
(b)    any Loans not being made continued or converted as LIBO Rate Loans or, EURIBOR Rate Loans or BBSY Rate Loans in accordance with the Borrowing Request or other notice therefor;
(c)    any Loans not being continued as, or converted into, LIBO Rate Loans or, EURIBOR Rate Loans or BBSY Rate Loans in accordance with the Continuation/Conversion Notice therefor; or
(d)    the assignment of any LIBO Rate Loan or, EURIBOR Rate Loan or BBSY Rate Loan other than on the last day of an Interest Period therefor as a result of a request by a Borrower pursuant to Section 4.11;
then, upon the written notice of such Lender to the applicable Borrower (with a copy to the Administrative Agent), such Borrower shall, within five days of its receipt thereof, pay directly to such Lender such amount as will (in the reasonable determination of such Lender) reimburse such Lender for such actual loss or expense. Such written notice shall, in the absence of manifest error, constitute prima facie evidence thereof and shall be binding on such Borrower.
SECTION 4.5    Increased Capital Costs. If any change in, or the introduction, adoption, effectiveness, interpretation, reinterpretation or phase‑in of, any law or regulation, directive, guideline, decision or request (whether or not having the force of law) of any Governmental Authority after the Closing Date (or, for a Lender who becomes a party to this Agreement after the Closing Date and is participating in a BBSY Rate Loan, to the extent the relevant event affects that BBSY Rate Loan, after the date that Lender becomes a party to this Agreement) affects or would affect the amount of capital or liquidity required or expected to be maintained by any Secured Party or any Person controlling such Secured Party, and such Secured Party determines (in good faith but in its sole and absolute discretion) that as a result thereof the rate of return on its or such controlling Person’s capital as a consequence of the Commitments or the Credit Extensions made, or the Letters of Credit participated in, by such Secured Party is reduced to a level below that which such Secured Party or such controlling Person could have achieved but for the occurrence of any such circumstance, then upon notice (together with reasonably detailed supporting documentation) from time to time by such Secured Party to the applicable Borrower, the applicable Borrower shall within five Business Days following receipt of such notice pay directly to such Secured Party additional amounts sufficient to compensate such Secured Party or such controlling Person for such reduction in rate of return. A statement in reasonable detail of such Secured Party as to any such additional amount or amounts shall, in the absence of manifest error, constitute prima facie evidence thereof and shall be binding on the applicable Borrower. In determining such amount, such Secured Party may use any method of averaging and attribution that it (in its sole and absolute discretion) shall deem applicable. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, (i) all requests, rules, guidelines, requirements and directives promulgated by the Bank for International Settlements, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (or any successor or similar authority) or by United States or foreign regulatory authorities, in each case pursuant to Basel III, and (ii) the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and all

67


 

requests, rules, guidelines, requirements and directives thereunder or issued in connection therewith or in implementation thereof, shall in each case be deemed to be a change in law, regardless of the date enacted, adopted, issued or implemented., except that for Lenders participating in a BBSY Rate Loan, such deeming does not apply for any measures under (i) and (ii) that have been enacted, adopted, issued or implemented before the date the Lender became a party to the Australian Syndicated Facility Agreement.
SECTION 4.6    Taxes. Each Borrower covenants and agrees as follows with respect to Taxes.
(a)    Any and all payments by the Borrowers under each Loan Document shall be made without setoff, counterclaim or other defense, and free and clear of, and without deduction or withholding for or on account of, any Taxes, unless otherwise required by law. In the event that any Taxes are imposed and required by law to be deducted or withheld from any payment required to be made by any Obligor to or on behalf of any Secured Party under any Loan Document, then:
(i)    subject to clause (g), if such Taxes are Non-Excluded Taxes, the amount of such payment shall be increased as may be necessary so that such payment is made, after withholding or deduction for or on account of such Taxes, in an amount that is not less than the amount provided for in such Loan Document; and
(ii)    each Borrower shall withhold the full amount of such Taxes from such payment (as increased pursuant to clause (a)(i)) and shall pay such amount to the Governmental Authority imposing such Taxes in accordance with applicable law.
(b)    In addition, the Borrowers shall pay all Other Taxes imposed to the relevant Governmental Authority imposing such Other Taxes in accordance with applicable law, except Luxembourg registration duties (droits d’enregistrement) payable due to a registration, submission or filing by an Indemnified Party of any Loan Document where such registration, submission or filing is or was not required to maintain or preserve the rights of the Indemnified Party under such Loan Document.
(c)    Upon the written request of the Administrative Agent, as promptly as practicable after the payment of any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes, and in any event within 45 days of any such written request, the applicable Borrower shall furnish to the Administrative Agent a copy of an official receipt (or a certified copy thereof) evidencing the payment of such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes. The Administrative Agent shall make copies thereof available to any Lender upon request therefor.
(d)    Subject to clause (g), each Borrower shall indemnify each Secured Party for any Non-Excluded Taxes and Other Taxes levied, imposed or assessed on (and whether or not paid directly by) such Secured Party whether or not such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes are correctly or legally asserted by the relevant Governmental Authority; provided that (i) if the applicable Borrower reasonably believes that such Taxes were not correctly or legally asserted, such Secured Party will use reasonable efforts to cooperate with such Borrower to obtain a refund of such Taxes so long as such efforts would not, in the sole determination of such Secured Party, result in any additional costs, expenses or risks or be otherwise disadvantageous to it or (ii) the levied Other Taxes are not Luxembourg registration duties (droits d’enregistrement) payable due to a registration, submission or filing by an Indemnified Party of any Loan Document where such

68


 

registration, submission or filing is or was not required to maintain or preserve the rights of the Indemnified Party under such Loan Document. Promptly upon having knowledge that any such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes have been levied, imposed or assessed, and promptly upon notice thereof by any Secured Party, the applicable Borrower shall pay such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes directly to the relevant Governmental Authority (provided that, no Secured Party shall be under any obligation to provide any such notice to the Borrowers). In addition, each Borrower shall indemnify each Secured Party for any incremental Taxes that may become payable by such Secured Party as a result of any failure of such Borrower to pay any Non-Excluded Taxes when due to the appropriate Governmental Authority or to deliver to the Administrative Agent, pursuant to clause (c), documentation evidencing the payment of Taxes or Other Taxes (other than incidental taxes resulting directly as a result of the willful misconduct or gross negligence of the Administrative Agent or a respective Secured Party); provided that if the Secured Party or Administrative Agent, as applicable, fails to give notice to a Borrower of the imposition of any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes within 120 days following its receipt of actual written notice of the imposition of such Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes, there will be no obligation for such Borrower to pay interest or penalties attributable to the period beginning after such 120th day and ending seven days after such Borrower receives notice from the Secured Party or the Administrative Agent as applicable. With respect to indemnification for Non-Excluded Taxes and Other Taxes actually paid by any Secured Party or the indemnification provided in the immediately preceding sentence, such indemnification shall be made within 30 days after the date such Secured Party makes written demand therefor (together with supporting documentation in reasonable detail). Each Borrower acknowledges that any payment made to any Secured Party or to any Governmental Authority in respect of the indemnification obligations of the Borrowers provided in this clause shall constitute a payment in respect of which the provisions of clause (a) and this clause shall apply.
(e)    Each Non-U.S. Lender, on or prior to the date on which such Non-U.S. Lender becomes a Lender hereunder (and from time to time thereafter upon the request of a Borrower or the Administrative Agent, but only for so long as such non-U.S. Lender is legally entitled to do so), shall deliver to the applicable Borrower and the Administrative Agent either (i) two duly completed copies of either (x) Internal Revenue Service Form W‑8BEN or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, claiming eligibility of the Non-U.S. Lender for benefits of an income tax treaty to which the United States is a party or (y) Internal Revenue Service Form W-8ECI, or in either case an applicable successor form; (ii) in the case of a Non-U.S. Lender that is claiming the exemption for portfolio interest under Section 881(c) of the Code, (x) a certificate to the effect that such Non-U.S. Lender is not (A) a “bank” within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(A) of the Code, (B) a “10-percent shareholder” of the applicable Borrower within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(B) of the Code, or (C) a controlled foreign corporation receiving interest from a related person within the meaning of Section 881(c)(3)(C) of the Code (referred to as an “Exemption Certificate”) and (y) two duly completed copies of Internal Revenue Service Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E or applicable successor form or (iii) to the extent a non-U.S. Lender that is not a U.S. Person is not the beneficial owner, executed originals of IRS Form W-8IMY, accompanied by IRS Form W-8ECI, IRS Form W 8BEN, or W-8BEN-E, as applicable, an Exemption Certificate, and/or other certification documents from each beneficial owner, as applicable.
(f)    Any Lender that is a United States Person, as defined in Section 7701(a)(30) of the Code, shall (unless such Lender may be treated as an exempt recipient based on the indicators described in Treasury Regulation Section 1.6049-4(c)(1)(ii)(A)) deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent, at the times specified in clause (e), two duly completed copies of Internal

69


 

Revenue Service Form W-9, or any successor form that such Person is entitled to provide at such time, in order to qualify for an exemption from United States back-up withholding requirements.
(g)    The Borrowers shall not be obligated to pay any additional amounts to any Lender pursuant to clause (a)(i), or to indemnify any Lender pursuant to clause (d), in respect of United States federal withholding taxes to the extent imposed as a result of (i) the failure of such Lender to deliver to a Borrower the form or forms and/or an Exemption Certificate, as applicable to such Lender, pursuant to clause (e) or clause (f), (ii) such form or forms and/or Exemption Certificate not establishing a complete exemption from U.S. federal withholding tax or the information or certifications made therein by the Lender being untrue or inaccurate on the date delivered in any material respect, or (iii) the Lender designating a successor lending office at which it maintains its Loans which has the effect of causing such Lender to become obligated for tax payments in excess of those in effect immediately prior to such designation; provided that the applicable Borrower shall be obligated to pay additional amounts to any such Lender pursuant to clause (a)(i) and to indemnify any such Lender pursuant to clause (d), in respect of United States federal withholding taxes if (i) any such failure to deliver a form or forms or an Exemption Certificate or the failure of such form or forms or Exemption Certificate to establish a complete exemption from U.S. federal withholding tax or inaccuracy or untruth contained therein resulted from a change in any applicable statute, treaty, regulation or other applicable law or any interpretation of any of the foregoing occurring after the Closing Date, which change rendered such Lender no longer legally entitled to deliver such form or forms or Exemption Certificate or otherwise ineligible for a complete exemption from U.S. federal withholding tax, or rendered the information or certifications made in such form or forms or Exemption Certificate untrue or inaccurate in a material respect, (ii) the redesignation of the Lender’s lending office was made at the request of a Borrower or (iii) the obligation to pay any additional amounts to any such Lender pursuant to clause (a)(i) or to indemnify any such Lender pursuant to clause (d) is with respect to an Eligible Assignee that becomes an assignee Lender as a result of an assignment made at the request of a Borrower.
(h)    If the Administrative Agent or a Lender determines in its sole, good faith discretion that amounts recovered or refunded are a recovery or refund of any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes as to which it has been indemnified by a Borrower pursuant to clause (d), or to which a Borrower has paid additional amounts pursuant to clause (a)(i), it shall pay over such refund to the applicable Borrower (but only to the extent of indemnity payments made, or additional amounts paid, by the applicable Borrower under this Section 4.6 with respect to the Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes that give rise to such refund), net of all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses of the Administrative Agent or such Lender and without interest (other than any interest paid by the relevant Governmental Authority with respect to such refund); provided that in no event will any Lender be required to pay an amount to a Borrower that would place such Lender in a less favorable net after-tax position than such Lender would have been in if the additional amounts giving rise to such refund of any Non-Excluded Taxes or Other Taxes had never been paid, and provided further that the applicable Borrower, upon the written request of the Administrative Agent or such Lender, agrees to repay the amount paid over to the applicable Borrower (plus any penalties, interest, or other charges imposed by the relevant Governmental Authority unless the Governmental Authority assessed such penalties, interest, or other charges due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Administrative Agent or such Lender) to the Administrative Agent or such Lender in the event the Administrative Agent or such Lender is required to repay such refund to the Governmental Authority. Nothing in this Section 4.6(h) shall

70


 

require any Lender to make available its tax returns or any other information related to its taxes that it deems confidential.
(i)    If a payment made to a Lender under this Agreement or any other Loan 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 (including those contained in Section 1471(b) or 1472(b) of the Code, as applicable), such Lender shall deliver to the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent, at the time or times prescribed by law and at such time or times reasonably requested by the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent, such documentation prescribed by applicable law (including as prescribed by Section 1471(b)(3)(C)(i) of the Code) and such additional documentation reasonably requested by the Borrower or the Administrative Agent as may be necessary for the Borrowers or the Administrative Agent to comply with their obligations under FATCA, to determine that such Lender has complied with such Lender's obligations under FATCA, or to determine the amount to deduct and withhold from such payment. For purposes of determining withholding Taxes imposed under FATCA, from and after the Closing Date, the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent shall treat (and the Lenders hereby authorize the Administrative Agent to treat) the Loan Documents as not qualifying as “grandfathered obligations” within the meaning of Treasury Regulation Section 1.1471-2(b)(2)(i). Solely for purposes of this Section 4.6(i), “FATCA” shall include all amendments after the Closing Date.
SECTION 4.7    Payments, Computations; Proceeds of Collateral, etc. (i) Unless otherwise expressly provided in a Loan Document, all reductions of the Revolving Loan Commitments and all payments by the Borrowers pursuant to each Loan Document shall be made by the Borrowers to the Administrative Agent for the pro rata account of the Secured Parties entitled to receive such reduction or payment. All payments shall be made without setoff, deduction or counterclaim not later than 11:00 a.m. (in the case of the Australian Credit Facilities, London time) on the date due in same day or immediately available funds to such account as the Administrative Agent (or in the case of a reimbursement obligation, the applicable Issuer) shall specify from time to time by notice to the applicable Borrower. Funds received after that time shall be deemed to have been received by the Administrative Agent on the next succeeding Business Day. The Administrative Agent shall promptly remit in same day funds to each Secured Party its share, if any, of such payments received by the Administrative Agent for the account of such Secured Party. All interest (including interest on LIBO Rate Loans and EURIBOR Rate Loans) and fees shall be computed on the basis of the actual number of days (including the first day but excluding the last day) occurring during the period for which such interest or fee is payable over a year comprised of 360 days (or, in the case of interest on a Base Rate Loan (calculated at other than the Federal Funds Rate) or BBSY Rate Loan, 365 days or, if appropriate, 366 days). Payments due on other than a Business Day shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension of time shall be included in computing interest and fees in connection with that payment.
(ii)    All amounts received as a result of the exercise of remedies under the Loan Documents (including from the proceeds of collateral securing the Obligations) or under applicable law shall be applied upon receipt to the Obligations as follows: (i) first, to the payment of all Obligations owing to the Agents, in their capacity as Agents (including the fees and expenses of counsel to the Agents), (ii) second, after payment in full in cash of the amounts specified in clause (b)(i), to the ratable payment of all interest (including interest accruing after the commencement of a proceeding in bankruptcy,

71


 

insolvency or similar law, whether or not permitted as a claim under such law) and fees owing under the Loan Documents (including all amounts owing under Section 3.3.4), and all costs and expenses owing to the Secured Parties pursuant to the terms of the Loan Documents, until paid in full in cash, (iii) third, after payment in full in cash of the amounts specified in clauses (b)(i) and (b)(ii), to the ratable payment of the principal amount of the Loans then outstanding, the aggregate Reimbursement Obligations then owing, the aggregate amount of OA Payment Obligations then owing, the Cash Collateralization for contingent liabilities under Letter of Credit Outstandings, amounts owing to Secured Parties under Rate Protection Agreements and the aggregate amount of Cash Management Obligations then owing, (iv) fourth, after payment in full in cash of the amounts specified in clauses (b)(i) through (b)(iii), to the ratable payment of all other Obligations (including Foreign Working Capital Obligations) owing to the Secured Parties, and (v) fifth, after payment in full in cash of the amounts specified in clauses (b)(i) through (b)(iv), and following the Termination Date, to each applicable Obligor or any other Person lawfully entitled to receive such surplus. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no amounts received from any Subsidiary Guarantor shall be applied to any Excluded Swap Obligations of such Subsidiary Guarantor. For purposes of clause (b)(iii), the “amounts owing” at any time to any Secured Party with respect to a Rate Protection Agreement to which such Secured Party is a party shall be determined at such time by the terms of such Rate Protection Agreement or, if not set forth therein, in accordance with the customary methods of calculating credit exposure under similar arrangements by the counterparty to such arrangements, taking into account potential interest rate (or, if applicable, currency or commodities) movements and the respective termination provisions and notional principal amount and term of such Rate Protection Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any such application of proceeds from Collateral of the Euro Term Loan Obligors and the Australian Obligors shall be made solely in respect of Euro Term Loan Obligations and the Australian Obligations.
SECTION 4.8    Sharing of Payments. If any Secured Party shall obtain any payment or other recovery (whether voluntary, involuntary, by application of setoff or otherwise) on account of any Credit Extension or Reimbursement Obligation (other than pursuant to the terms of Sections 4.3, 4.4, 4.5 or 4.6) in excess of its pro rata share of payments obtained by all Secured Parties, such Secured Party shall purchase (in Dollars) from the other Secured Parties such participations in Credit Extensions made by them as shall be necessary to cause such purchasing Secured Party to share the excess payment or other recovery ratably (to the extent such other Secured Parties were entitled to receive a portion of such payment or recovery) with each of them; provided that, if all or any portion of the excess payment or other recovery is thereafter recovered from such purchasing Secured Party, the purchase shall be rescinded and each Secured Party which has sold a participation to the purchasing Secured Party shall repay to the purchasing Secured Party the purchase price to the ratable extent of such recovery together with an amount equal to such selling Secured Party’s ratable share (according to the proportion of (a) the amount of such selling Secured Party’s required repayment to the purchasing Secured Party to (b) total amount so recovered from the purchasing Secured Party) of any interest or other amount paid or payable by the purchasing Secured Party in respect of the total amount so recovered. Each Borrower agrees that any Secured Party purchasing a participation from another Secured Party pursuant to this Section may, to the fullest extent permitted by law, exercise all its rights of payment (including pursuant to Section 4.9) with respect to such participation as fully as if such Secured Party were the direct creditor of such Borrower in the amount of

72


 

such participation. If under any applicable bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law any Secured Party receives a secured claim in lieu of a setoff to which this Section applies, such Secured Party shall, to the extent practicable, exercise its rights in respect of such secured claim in a manner consistent with the rights of the Secured Parties entitled under this Section to share in the benefits of any recovery on such secured claim.
SECTION 4.9    Setoff. Each Secured Party shall, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any Event of Default described in clauses (a) through (d) of Section 8.1.9 or, with the consent of the Required Lenders, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of any other Event of Default, have the right to appropriate and apply to the payment of the Obligations owing to it (if then due and payable), and (as security for such Obligations) each Borrower hereby grants to each Secured Party a continuing security interest in, any and all balances, credits, deposits, accounts or moneys of such Borrower then or thereafter maintained with such Secured Party (other than payroll, trust or tax accounts); provided that, any such appropriation and application shall be subject to the provisions of Section 4.8; provided further, that to the extent prohibited by applicable law as described in the definition of “Excluded Swap Obligation,” no amounts received from, or set off with respect to, any Subsidiary Guarantor shall be applied to any Excluded Swap Obligations of such Subsidiary Guarantor. Each Secured Party agrees promptly to notify the Borrowers and the Administrative Agent after any such appropriation and application made by such Secured Party; provided that, the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such setoff and application. The rights of each Secured Party under this Section are in addition to other rights and remedies (including other rights of setoff under applicable law or otherwise) which such Secured Party may have.
SECTION 4.10    Mitigation. Each Lender agrees that if it makes any demand for payment under Sections 4.3, 4.5 or 4.6, it will use reasonable efforts (consistent with its internal policy and legal and regulatory restrictions and so long as such efforts would not be disadvantageous to it, as determined in its sole discretion) to designate a different lending office if the making of such a designation would reduce or obviate the need for the Borrowers to make payments under Section 4.3 or 4.6.
SECTION 4.11    Removal of Lenders. If any Lender (an “Affected Lender”) (i) fails to consent to an election, consent, amendment, waiver or other modification to this Agreement or other Loan Document (a “Non-Consenting Lender”) that requires the consent of a greater percentage of the Lenders than the Required Lenders and such election, consent, amendment, waiver or other modification is otherwise consented to by Non-Defaulting Lenders holding more than 50% of the Total Exposure Amount of all Non-Defaulting Lenders, (ii) makes a demand upon a Borrower for (or if a Borrower is otherwise required to pay) amounts pursuant to Section 4.3, 4.5 or 4.6, or gives notice pursuant to Section 4.1 requiring a conversion of such Affected Lender’s LIBO Rate Loans to Base Rate Loans or, such Affected Lender’s EURIBOR Rate Loans to Euro Base Rate Loans or such Affected Lender’s BBSY Rate Loans to Australian Base Rate Loans or any change in the basis upon which interest is to accrue in respect of such Affected Lender’s LIBO Rate Loans or, EURIBOR Rate Loans or BBSY Rate Loans or suspending such Lender’s obligation to make Loans as, or to convert Loans into, LIBO Rate Loans or, EURIBOR Rate Loans or BBSY Rate Loans or (iii) becomes a Defaulting Lender, the applicable Borrower may, at its sole cost and expense, within 90 days of receipt by such Borrower of such demand or notice (or the occurrence of such other event causing such Borrower to be required to pay such

73


 

compensation) or within 90 days of such Lender becoming a Non-Consenting Lender or a Defaulting Lender, as the case may be, give notice (a “Replacement Notice”) in writing to the Administrative Agent and such Affected Lender of its intention to cause such Affected Lender to sell all or any portion of its Loans, Commitments and/or Notes to another financial institution or other Person (a “Replacement Lender”) designated in such Replacement Notice; provided that no Replacement Notice may be given by a Borrower if (A) such replacement conflicts with any applicable law or regulation or (B) prior to any such replacement, such Lender shall have taken any necessary action under Section 4.5 or 4.6 (if applicable) so as to eliminate the continued need for payment of amounts owing pursuant to Section 4.5 or 4.6 and withdrew its request for compensation under Section 4.3, 4.5 or 4.6. If the Administrative Agent shall, in the exercise of its reasonable discretion and within 30 days of its receipt of such Replacement Notice, notify the applicable Borrower and such Affected Lender in writing that the Replacement Lender is reasonably satisfactory to the Administrative Agent (such consent not being required where the Replacement Lender is already a Lender), then such Affected Lender shall, subject to the payment of any amounts due pursuant to Section 4.4, assign, in accordance with Section 10.11, the portion of its Commitments, Loans, Notes (if any) and other rights and obligations under this Agreement and all other Loan Documents (including Reimbursement Obligations, if applicable) designated in the Replacement Notice to such Replacement Lender; provided that (A) such assignment shall be without recourse, representation or warranty and shall be on terms and conditions reasonably satisfactory to such Affected Lender and such Replacement Lender, and (B) the purchase price paid by such Replacement Lender shall be in the amount of such Affected Lender’s Loans designated in the Replacement Notice and/or its Percentage of outstanding Reimbursement Obligations, as applicable, together with all accrued and unpaid interest and fees in respect thereof, plus all other amounts (including the amounts demanded and unreimbursed under Sections 4.3, 4.5 and 4.6), owing to such Affected Lender hereunder. Upon the effective date of an assignment described above, the Replacement Lender shall become a “Lender” for all purposes under the Loan Documents. Each Lender hereby grants to the Administrative Agent an irrevocable power of attorney (which power is coupled with an interest) to execute and deliver, on behalf of such Lender as assignor, any assignment agreement necessary to effectuate any assignment of such Lender’s interests hereunder in the circumstances contemplated by this Section.
SECTION 4.12    Limitation on Additional Amounts, etc. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Sections 4.3 or 4.5 of this Agreement, unless a Lender gives notice to a Borrower that it is obligated to pay an amount under any such Section within 90 days after the later of (i) the date the Lender incurs the respective increased costs, loss, expense or liability, reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital or (ii) the date such Lender has actual knowledge of its incurrence of their respective increased costs, loss, expense or liability, reductions in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital, then such Lender shall only be entitled to be compensated for such amount by such Borrower pursuant to Sections 4.3 or 4.5, as the case may be, to the extent the costs, loss, expense or liability, reduction in amounts received or receivable or reduction in return on capital are incurred or suffered on or after the date which occurs 90 days prior to such Lender giving notice to such Borrower that it is obligated to pay the respective amounts pursuant to Sections 4.3 or 4.5, as the case may be. This Section shall have no applicability to any Section of this Agreement other than Sections 4.3 and 4.5.

74


 

SECTION 4.13    Defaulting Lenders. Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, if any Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender, then the following provisions shall apply for so long as such Lender is a Defaulting Lender:
(a)    if any Swing Line Exposure, Letter of Credit Outstandings or any OA Payment Outstandings exists at the time a Lender becomes a Defaulting Lender then:
(i)    all or any part of such Swing Line Exposure, Letter of Credit Outstandings and OA Payment Outstandings shall be reallocated among the Non-Defaulting Lenders in accordance with their respective Revolving Loan Percentages but only to the extent (x) the sum of all Non-Defaulting Lenders’ Revolving Exposures plus such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Percentage of (A) Swing Line Exposure, (B) Letter of Credit Outstandings and (C) OA Payment Outstandings does not exceed the total of all Non-Defaulting Lenders’ Commitments and (y) the conditions set forth in Section 5.2 are satisfied at such time; and
(ii)    if the reallocation described in clause (i) above cannot, or can only partially, be effected, the Parent Borrower shall within one Business Day following notice by the Administrative Agent (x) first, prepay such Swing Line Exposure and (y) second, Cash Collateralize such Defaulting Lender’s Revolving Loan Percentage of the Letter of Credit Outstandings and OA Payment Outstandings (after giving effect to any partial reallocation pursuant to clause (i) above) for so long as such Letter of Credit Outstandings is outstanding.
